So you know that robots are here to stay once you see an article about teaching kids the need to refer to them as “it” . How about “Sir” in that case? Your Honor perhaps? But why not “she” or “her”? Shouldn’t we be designing and making AIs and robots as males and females? Aren’t the genders different enough that they require their own manifestation...]]>

Can refugees be the key to a new and vibrant immigration policy? http://perthleadership.org/easyblog/entry/can-refugees-be-the-key-to-a-new-and-vibrant-immigration-policy http://perthleadership.org/easyblog/entry/can-refugees-be-the-key-to-a-new-and-vibrant-immigration-policy
I think the debate about immigration is missing something really big. The biggest thing we should be worried about is the vitality and energy of our country.

“Happy Feet” - can animals fall in love? http://perthleadership.org/easyblog/entry/happy-feet-can-animals-fall-in-love http://perthleadership.org/easyblog/entry/happy-feet-can-animals-fall-in-love
OK so I went whale-watching recently, my token conversion to greenery. I actually saw several whales! Humpbacks actually. The interesting thing is that all the ones I saw were in pairs. Our helpful guide told us that these were always couples, male/female. But, she added disapprovingly, the male escort was always temporary; they have their way with...]]>

Are women smarter than men – but only after babies? http://perthleadership.org/easyblog/entry/are-women-smarter-than-men-but-only-after-babies http://perthleadership.org/easyblog/entry/are-women-smarter-than-men-but-only-after-babies
So while Trump disses women, the women are nonetheless showing their mettle a la Hilary and Fox's Megyn Kelley. That brings me (well, kind of) to an article I read recently in New Scientist “Busting the baby brain myth: Why motherhood makes minds sharper ”. The author (a woman btw) is out to debunk what she sees as being the myth of the “baby brain...]]>

Did you see that Angela Merkel, German Chancellor, just got Time’s Person of the Year ? She’s the only Western leader who can deal with Putin. She’s really the leader of “united” Europe which has the combined heft of the US. So she certainly deserves it. Definitely in the same class as Margaret Thatcher and Golda Meir. Outshines any of the other Eu...]]>
