Two brothers did something extraordinary on a miserable, cold winter day off the North Carolina coast.
Two brothers did something extraordinary on a miserable, cold winter day off the North Carolina coast. Wilbur Wright and Orville Wright flew their strange-looking flying machine 12 seconds for 120 feet.
Cal Rodgers, a less than eight-year-old pilot, began the first transcontinental flight across America.
Charles Lindbergh flew the Spirit of St. Louis, a non-stop solo transatlantic flight, from New York to Paris, fifteen years later.
Seven U.S. presidents later and humans have walked on the Moon.
It's no longer a cliché to say technology is evolving faster than ever. We believe that technology is changing at an incredible pace, forcing us to adapt faster than ever to shifting circumstances.
It's just not true. It is hard to argue that technological advancements today are any faster than they were between 1903-1911. This includes Kitty Hawk and the first transcontinental flight.
Technology hasn't really changed in the past few decades. It was half a century since the first email was sent. More than 30 years ago, the World Wide Web was made publicly available. In June 1974, a packet of Wrigley chewing tobacco was the first to scan a UPC code. Richard Nixon was the president. The U.S. was still involved in the Vietnam War.
Although it may seem like things are changing at an unprecedented pace, when viewed in the context of technological advances over the past century, this is not the case.
There are many types of technological advances.
While technological changes are not happening at a faster pace, the kinds of changes that affect our economy and businesses are. These technological changes are changing the traditional role of humans within the economy, and forcing us to reexamine what our roles are as workers in this job market.
Consider, for instance, the internet. Although it's not brand new, its capabilities make it nearly indistinguishable to the dial-up version of the 1990s that relied on a modem. The touch tone phone is not new. This technology dates back to the 1960s. It is amazing to see what smartphones can do today. With just a few taps, anyone with a smartphone can book a flight between Toronto and Mumbai using a credit card.
The 20th century economy was greatly affected by the advent of flight. Being able to move people and goods thousands upon thousands of miles in half the time caused a major shift in transportation dynamics. However, humans still had to build, fuel, and fly planes.
Humans' role in the economy is not as secure.
We are now more than half way through the 21st Century and the role of humans is less secure. Both robotics and artificial intelligence (which are not new) have a positive and negative impact on almost every job. According to some estimates, almost half of the jobs today will be affected by machines that can learn and adapt.
We need to know how this change affects the role of labor in the economy. Businesses and entrepreneurs will see significant changes in the way they connect to the job marketplace. The job market is becoming more relational and interdependent, which requires soft skills such as empathy, humor, and tactful communications. Today's workers are more likely than ever to describe their job as satisfying and fulfilling.

Flexibility is key to eating well, according to Joyce Meng, MD assistant professor at UConn Health's Pat and Jim Calhoun Cardiology Center. You can follow a strict diet plan if you prefer. It's okay if you don't like following a strict diet plan.

Get regular checkups. Your doctor will keep track of your medical history so that you can stay healthy. If you are at high risk of osteoporosis (a condition that weakens bones), your doctor may recommend more vitamin D and calcium.
You may be recommended by your doctor to have screening tests done to monitor your health and detect conditions before they become serious.
Be open to communication. Meng said, "If you have any questions, ask your doctor." "Ensure you are satisfied with the information." Talk to your doctor if you have concerns about any medication or procedure.
It can be very detrimental to your health. It is impossible to avoid it all, but there are ways you can reduce the effects. Do not take on too many responsibilities. Set limits for yourself and others. It is okay to say no.
