Nicki Minaj On Cultural Appropriation, Becoming A Boss, Being Unapologetic & More | TIME 100 | TIME

I think, before I could remember wanting to do anything else, I knew that I wanted to be in charge. As a child, my mother didn’t have a job where she was the boss. And I always looked at that and wished that she was the boss and that she did make her own rules. So from very early on, I felt like you know what? Whatever I do, one day, I want to be more in charge of my…

How job surveillance is changing trucking in America

We work in a world filled with devices that can monitor us, locate us, and tell us what to do. That raises the question — who watches you work?

Programmed to follow routes from GPS systems while the driver rests. Over time, automation will dramatically change work for the 3.5 million truck…

Globalization: Doha Debates Asks

Globalization: Doha Debates Asks

One second. What does globalization mean? It makes it easier because a lot of things are there which are not available in India, and a lot of things are available in India which are not available abroad.

‘Connecting with Culture’: A Musical Bridge Between Yerevan & Venice

I think the first thing to say is that the Cappella Marciana, the choir of St. Mark’s Basilica, is very honoured and grateful to be taking part in this special event. It’s been a real pleasure to perform and to share this platform with the Hover choir. They’re a wonderful choir and I’m very happy to be conducting them albeit through this particular technology which allows this. It was a little difficult to get used to at first because we…

Cómo nos manipulan en las redes sociales | Santiago Bilinkis | TEDxRiodelaPlata

Translator: Gisela Giardino Reviewer: Sebastian Betti A while ago, I was in a bar. There, was a woman at another table with her five-year-old son. She was completely captured by her cellphone. Meanwhile, the kid stared at her. Maybe another kid would have messed up to try to get her attention. But not this kid. He waited for a while, he finally stood up, went behind his mother and began to stroke her hair. He tried to summon her with…

What Iran Did Not Want You To See | NYT Opinion

It’s really shocking. You see the security forces who are just shooting. The protests were triggered by a massive rise in the fuel price. And within hours of the protests starting, the authorities resorted to the use of firearms to crush down these voices. The Iranian authorities shut down the internet. It happened extremely quickly. Between 24 hours people were no longer online and seeing our messages. However, many people courageously sent these videos. And as the internet has been…
