I saw a sign the other day that said, “Is there anything technology can’t do?” As technology advances, we poor humans are getting desperate for sources of self-esteem. Everyone knows computers can play chess and Jeopardy! better than we can. They sort thousands of documents for relevance in legal cases faster, cheaper and better than lawyers do. They assemble electronic products in factories faster, cheaper and better than people do. They can drive cars better than human drivers can. So we grasp at evidence of our continued superiority over the machine. Recent articles, for example, show that computers are still pretty poor at humor, and they make some obvious blunders as psychotherapists. Yet any comfort we derive from these facts is unfounded, because it overlooks a crucial reality: The technology is getting roughly twice as powerful every two years, while we humans are not. Ignoring that reality leads us astray as we confront one of the center-stage issues of our time: How will humans create value and earn a rising standard of living when technology keeps doing more work better than we do? Specifically, we seek an answer in the wrong way by asking the wrong next question: What is it that technology inherently cannot do? While it seems like common sense that the skills computers can’t acquire will be valuable, the lesson of history is that it’s dangerous to claim there are any skills that computers cannot eventually acquire.

I saw a sign the other day that said, Where ever you go no matter the weather always bring your own sunshine. This was outside a fellow RV’er campsite at a RV park we visited recently. I decided to do a little research of my own and see who penned this quote and it turned out to be none other than Anthony J. D'Angelo, an American writer who has a long list of quotes under his belt and a well-respected writer from what I could find out in my search. This would make for a good slogan for some of the rallies attended in the rain belt here in BC.

I saw a sign the other day that said, Happy Birthday Canada. Yes, it is Canada’s 150th birthday on July 1st. That not very old by other country standards for being the 2nd largest country in the world physically with 9,984,671 sq. km of land mass of which 202,080 km is coastline. I thought it befitting to remind you of some tidbits of our great country. Canada is made up of 10 provinces and 3 territories. Symbols for Canada are the Maple Leaf and Maple Tree. The national animals are the horse and beaver. O’ Canada remains as the national anthem with the royal anthem being God Save the Queen. Our motto is From Sea to Sea and the colours are red and white. We have two national sports; the winter sport is none other than Hockey with summer being Lacrosse. There was a project to declare our national bird in time for Canada’s sesquicentennial anniversary in 2017. Selection of the Grey Jay was done in 2016 and currently there is lobbying taking place to make this the official bird before the end of 2017. Government; constitutional monarchy, representative democracy, parliament system, federal monarchy is Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, Governor General is David Johnston and the Queen is Elizabeth II.
