Stephen Hawking Says We Should Really Be Scared Of Capitalism, Not Robots

Machines won’t bring about the economic robot apocalypse ― but greedy humans will, according to physicist Stephen Hawking.

In a Reddit Ask Me Anything session on Thursday, the scientist predicted that economic inequality will skyrocket as more jobs become automated and the rich owners of machines refuse to share their fast-proliferating wealth.

Illinois passes automatic voter registration

The Illinois House passed a bill Monday that would automatically register people to vote, the Associated Press reports

The House passed the bill 115-0. It will now return to the Senate for agreements on changes, according to the AP. 

Under the proposal, people will automatically be registered to vote when they visit Secretary of State's offices and several other state agencies.

People must meet certain conditions and they are allowed to opt out. 

The state Democratic representative who sponsored the legislation said it would modernize the state's voter registration system and increase participation in elections. 

A similar bill passed the state legislature last year but was vetoed by Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner, who said it didn't do enough to prevent voter fraud.

FOR the 20 actors nominated for an Oscar all to be white could at best be seen as a surprise. For that to be true two years running is, to many, a scandal. While there will be no empty seats at the 88th Academy Awards ceremony on February 28th—live television does not permit such things—there may be a lot of missing faces. Confronted with what is seen as a “whitewash”, many prominent black Americans are saying they will boycott the ceremony.

TIL that in 2006, 75% of Chinese didn't know that sharks were killed to make shark fin soup. But now, 91% of Chinese support a nationwide ban, thanks to activism work by Yao Ming and others

SHARK POPULATIONS across the globe have been in decline for decades, with approximately 100 million sharks removed from the oceans each year. Demand for shark fin soup drives such relentless fishing, accounting for 73% of sharks harvested from the seas, and as a result 1 in 4 shark species are now endangered.
