Such is the hold that Adolf Hitler exerts on the Western imagination that, more than four decades after the end of the Second World War, my British schoolmates and I were still singing rhymes about his testicles. Where I grew up, in South London, our preferred version of the popular wartime ditty “Hitler Has Only Got One Ball” placed the Führer’s absent gonad in the opulent Royal Albert Hall. (“His mother, the dirty bugger / Cut it off when he was small.”) Our fascination with Nazism went well beyond the playground; it also extended to our computer screens at home.

Artificial intelligence may well pose an existential threat to humanity. But that’s not what worries the public. What worries them is jobs. According to a new study conducted by my team at SYZYGY, 70 percent of the American public fear that AI will have a negative impact on employment in the US. On average, Americans in work today believe that 30 percent of their work could be replaced by AI-enabled automation technology within five years.

With U.S. unemployment at a 17-year low and businesses complaining that they can’t fill jobs, you might expect pay to be rising sharply as companies try to attract or keep workers. It’s not. The October jobs report showed that pay gains remain sluggish, and the explanations include weak worker productivity and a still-low proportion of adults with jobs. These are long-running trends that still bedevil the economy despite its steady improvement.

If you’ve spent more than a few minutes researching knives, you’ve likely run into a bewildering fog of jargon and technical specifications. Here’s a quick guide, which applies to steak knives, chef’s knives, and everything in between: The phrase high-carbon steel is basically marketing hype: every steel alloy used to make knives is high-carbon. You can ignore the phrase it if it’s used, and you needn’t worry if it’s not. Do note, however, that if a knife is listed only as “high-carbon” or “carbon steel,” it will easily rust. To be sure your knife is rust-resistant, make sure it is also listed as stainless. Stainless steel is steel alloyed with at lea... Read More
