    For millennia, we have looked to our dreams for clues as to how we should live our waking lives. Everyone dreams, even if we think we don't — and for much longer each night than previously believed. Cutting-edge sleep science suggests we dream for at least six-and-a-half hours every night. But experts remain divided on precisely why we dream. Some think dreams are merely the result of random — and meaningless — firings of neurons, as the sleeping brain clears out debris from the day before and forms new memories. Others, including those at the forefront of neuroscience, are convinced that dreams are the brain's ingenious way of joining the dots and suggesting solutions to problems while we sleep. By 'dramatising' our deepest anxieties and desires, they can show us what we really want and need in life. Modern sleep research has even begun to reconsider the notion of 'precognitive...
    Chicago — United Airlines said Wednesday it will buy up to 200 small electric air taxis to help customers in urban areas get to the airport. The airline said it will help electric-aircraft startup Archer develop an aircraft capable of helicopter-style, vertical takeoffs and landings. Archer hopes to deliver its first aircraft in 2024, if it wins certification from the Federal Aviation Administration. United said once the aircraft are flying, it and partner Mesa Airlines will acquire up to 200 that would be operated by another company. According to an Archer presentation to investors, the orders are worth $1 billion with an option for $500 million more. Privately held Archer, which is based in Palo Alto, California, announced separately that it has agreed to merge with Atlas Crest Investment Corp. and form a new publicly traded company. Archer and Atlas put a $3.8 billion...
    Laid-off Keystone Pipeline workers say President Joe Biden’s cancellation of the pipeline will negatively impacted their futures, according to multiple outlets. Labor groups have said that the cancellation eliminated 1,000 union jobs and could erase ten times more construction jobs that the Keystone Pipeline would have offered, according to Fox News. In 2014, the State Department estimated that Keystone would have offered jobs for 10,400 construction workers over several seasons, reported CNBC. “It’s hard to make plans when you’ve got an administration that’s trying to crush your future,” an unnamed Keystone worker told Fox News. “The best stimulus they could do for this country right now is keep people working.” Tyler Noel, a Keystone worker in South Dakota, told CNBC that he needs the pipeline job.

    Bang & Olufsen’s Beosound Level is the Danish brand’s latest battery-powered connected speaker. It supports voice controls via Google Assistant, Bluetooth, and you can also stream to it via the AirPlay 2, Chromecast, and Spotify Connect standards. B&O says the Beosound Level uses a modular construction that it claims will make it usable far into the future. It’s a welcome feature, considering the speaker’s high $1,499 (£1,099) starting price. While many stereos and amplifiers from the middle of the last century can still be used today, the average lifespan of modern integrated audio systems is far shorter. If your music system contains a computer, then it’s inevitable that it’ll eventually become outdated. B&O’s hope is that the modular design it’s using for the Beosound Level will help the company keep it supported for longer, as well as making it easier to repair when components fail. ...

If you’re white—as I am—it can be an uncomfortable read, but that discomfort is part of the point: to force women who benefit from a privilege that comes with their skin pigment, but who believe in an inclusive feminism, to...

    (CBS Detroit) — Is it too soon to think about a third stimulus check? The second payment is currently arriving in bank accounts, as part of a stimulus package many experts find inadequate. A Senate runoff election that will help determine the fate of President-elect Joe Biden’s first term is playing out in Georgia. And COVID-19 remains largely unchecked as the country moves out of the holiday season and into the dead of winter. All of these events have implications for the future economy. So, no, it’s not too soon at all to begin chatter about a potential third stimulus check. The first round of stimulus payments went out in the spring to millions of Americans. At that time, the economy was rapidly contracting under the weight of a massive slowdown brought on by the COVID-19 pandemic. Stores and restaurants in many parts of the country were ordered to stay closed....

    It's the time of year when schoolchildren craft and draw their own Christmas cards to give to friends and family, but the design they pick may well give an inkling as to their future. A new study commissioned by Vodafone to mark its Christmas Light Up campaign with Barnardos, has identified traits in adult life correlated to the drawings children choose for their Christmas cards. To produce the data in the study, 1,500 Britons were asked questions about their lives, personalities and careers and then asked what Christmas card they favoured making as a child. The results were then cross referenced between the Christmas drawings and their answers about their lives.  Researchers found that if your child draws a snowman on their card, they are most likely to work in administration and have a happy relationship, while children that draw Christmas fairies are the most likely to have a career...
    GETTING ready in good time for the end of UK transition makes total business sense when you employ workers from the European Union. Europeans are an essential part of a successful UK economy. But if you’re not prepared for the new regulations, your company could run into problems. 3 Hands on: getting to grips with the new rules will save building bosses hassle Take the construction industry, for example. There are roughly 165,000 EU citizens currently working on building sites across the UK. They account for 7 per cent of labourers and tradespeople, the Office for National Statistics says. But if building firms want to keep these workers when the UK transition period ends on 31 December and we exit the EU single market and customs union, they need to put in the groundwork now. If you run a building business, you should encourage your current EU staff to apply...

    VIDEO13:0413:04Does college make you happy?Happy Medium As the coronavirus crisis forces schools to operate remotely, a growing number of would-be college students are opting out entirely.    Such a move can have a big impact on future earnings.

    Staying safe during the pandemic has required us to temporarily change many of our routines, traditions and ways we interact with each other. Some have been easy changes. Wearing a mask and washing our hands more frequently don’t really interfere much with our normal lives. On the other hand, working and learning from home, staying away from friends and family, not hugging grandma, interviewing for a job through Zoom, or competing in your last high school or college game with no spectators? Now, those are big differences that can make us feel as if life is so changed we have to stop doing everything we had planned before coronavirus became a part of our lives. As a university president, that concerns me on many levels, and here’s why. High school students who put their lives on hold miss out on opportunities to pursue the life they want.

    CNN’s Jake Tapper was slammed for saying supporters of President Trump should worry “how any future employers might see your character defined during adversity.” “I truly sympathize with those dealing with losing — it’s not easy — but at a certain point one has to think not only about what’s best for the nation (peaceful transfer of power) but how any future employers might see your character defined during adversity,” Tapper tweeted Monday. “I mean, I don’t expect the ride-or-die crew to listen to me, but,” he added. “‘So, it says here on your resume that you drove a sex offender to testify at Four Seasons Total Landscaping, north of the Tacony-Palmyra bridge.’” 2/ I mean, I don’t expect the ride-or-die crew to listen to me, but ...“So, it says here on your resume that you drove a sex offender to testify at Four Seasons Total Landscaping, north of...
    The Army’s plans for robotic wingmen in vehicle formations, a drone on every soldier and robotic mules carrying gear all aim to take the load off the fighter. But how will the two communicate, robot and human? Voice commands like automated assistants on smartphones are great, but not when the threat of incoming fire means the robot battle buddy needs to decipher a range of priorities that humans might take for granted. Think more C3PO or R2D2 in the “Star Wars” movies than Hal in “2001: A Space Odyssey” —or better yet, a friendly cyborg from “Terminator” might be the best way to see your robot combatant squad mate of the distant future.

    Sometimes it does make sense to reinvent the wheel — if the wheel can drive significantly improved speed, efficiency, and capabilities.  Such is the case when it comes to central bank-backed fiat currency, which is currently available to the average citizen only in a physical cash or coin format.   Physical cash issued by the central bank is the most riskless form of money an entity can hold, and, in the physical world, can be the most efficient form to transact.  Unfortunately, unlike e-money, which we will define as commercial bank money where the liability is that of the issuing bank, physical cash can’t be used in online commerce. In the U.S., more than 15% of all retail activity now takes place online. Reinventing the wheel of cash into a new format of digital money could unleash substantial economic and social benefits, including enhanced access and convenience, lower costs, greater speed,...

    Retiring doesn't always mean you won't have a job. Nearly 60% of baby boomers in the workforce plan to keep working in some fashion after they retire, according to a study from Voya Financial. If you prefer a work-free retirement, you'll need to have enough money in savings to cover your future spending. To make your nest egg last, you should aim to use around 4% of your savings per year in retirement, according to financial advisor Winnie Sun, co-founder and managing director of Sun Group Wealth Partners. That percentage can change, however, based on several factors such as if your home isn't paid off or if you have high health-care costs, Sun said.  This strategy also assumes that you have a balanced portfolio, focusing more on bonds and cash-type investments for your short-term needs. This allows your accounts to grow for the future, according to Sun.  Check out this...

    Samsung has unveiled its next high-performance NVMe 2280-sized M.2 drive, the 980 Pro. So far, it comes in three capacities shipping this month: 250GB for $89.99, 500GB for $149.99, and 1TB for $229.99. A 2TB model will arrive later this year, but Samsung didn’t share a price.

    Facebook's first pair of smart glasses — made in collaboration with luxury eyewear manufacturer Ray-Ban — is to be released next year, the tech firm has revealed. The announcement coincided with CEO Mark Zuckerberg revealing his vision for the future of augmented reality (AR) — bringing holograms of friends into your home. While this dream may seem especially appealing amid present coronavirus-related restrictions, however, such a future may still be some way off. In fact, the smart Ray-Bans will not have an integrated display, the Verge reported — but may feature recording capacity or a voice-activated assistant. Facebook has confirmed that the product will operate by pairing with a phone. The tech firm has also previously indicated it is developing audio features for augmented reality which will make sounds from speakers sound more authentic. Furthermore, its researchers are working on developing technology to facilitate 'perceptual superpowers' that automatically tune out background noise. ...

    Labor Day weekend is traditionally the time we say goodbye to summer, prepare for the start of the new school year and, if we’re historically aware, pay our respects to the labor unions and leaders who helped attain so many advances for the American worker.

If you thought those days were behind you, I have news: Points will be given to the job seeker who can offer an upbeat recital of how they spent their pandemic...
    Mark and Patricia McCloskey, the St. Louis couple who received national attention after footage of them armed as protesters passed their house went viral on social media, spoke at the Republican National Convention Monday night. Mark McCloskey opened by referencing the “mob of protesters” while Patricia said, “What you saw happened to us could just as eaily happen to any of you who are watching from quiet neighborhoods across the country.” “Whether it’s the defunding of police, ending cash bails so criminals can be released back out on the streets the same day to riot again or encouraging anarchy and chaos on our streets,” Mark continued, “it seems as if the Democrats no longer view the government’s job as protecting honest citizens from criminals, but rather protecting criminals from honest citizens.” “These radicals are not content with marching in the streets, they want to walk the halls of congress....

    On Saturday, in our first extract from a mesmerising new book, JENNY KLEEMAN explored how we could soon live in a world devoid of intimacy — where thousands of sex robots are sold worldwide.

First spotted by AppleInsider, the patent describes a scenario in which a device with one or more sensors to “capture one or more images of the user’s hand” and then use those images to figure out the positions of the veins in that user’s hand.

We all know these foods are risky and could make us sick, but research has suggested that in certain high-stakes social situations — like dinner with your prospective in-laws or a BBQ at your new boss' house — you may eat them anyway.Researchers in Norway evaluated 17 different social situations to assess how people felt about the consequences of not eating the food we are served and found that being invited to one's future parents-in-laws for the first time was the situation judged to have the biggest pressure to be polite and not refuse food. How do you know if your chicken is cooked properly? Its complicated, say researchers"We might imagine that in this situation the anticipated cost of eating something disliked was weighed against the anticipated cost of being judged impolite, rude, or — in the worst case — as an unsuitable son...
