Google, IBM, Microsoft, Apple, Facebook, Baidu, Foxconn, and others have recently made multi-billion dollar investments in artificial intelligence and robotics. Some of these investments are aimed at increasing productivity and enhancing coordination and cooperation. Others are aimed at creating strategic gains in competitive interactions. This is creating “arms races” in high-frequency trading, cyber warfare, drone warfare, stealth technology, surveillance systems, and missile warfare.
Cynthia Brian finds out what ASI is and how it will affect our world with scientist, author, entrepreneur, professor, and expert on artificial super intelligence, Dr. Steve Omohundro.

Fat shaming has been a #hashtag topic of conversation with people posting negative comments on social media about people’s body. Now the new trend is skinny shaming. In Health Matters, Heather Brittany tackles way to stop the cyber-bullying and harmful judging.

Spring ReBirth & Book Bash Blow Out!

Welcome to the rebirth of spring!

Last Month was National Reading Month. One of our BTSYA volunteers,Alex Pawlakos, spent many hours doing research on literacy rates in our nation and unfortunately, found that illiteracy is still a major problem. U.S. Department of Education research shows that more than 60 percent of America’s prison inmates are illiterate and that 85 percent of all juvenile offenders have reading problems. Two-thirds of America’s children living in poverty have no books at home, and the number of families living in poverty is on the rise. Three out of four food stamp recipients perform in the lowest two literacy levels and 90% of welfare recipients are high school dropouts.
Thirty-three percent of 4th grade public school students are at or below the “Basic” level of reading tests. Twenty-six percent of children who were read to three or four times in the last week by a family member recognized all letters of the alphabet. Where parent involvement is low, the classroom mean average is 46 points below the national average. Where involvement is high, classrooms score 28 points above the national average—a gap of 74 points. Families play an important role in their children’s reading success and access to books is a critical investment in the future of our children.
