Imagine waking up early in the morning without having to worry about your career or going to work because the government provides you monthly allowances enough to live comfortably. Well that's what Canada is doing

Canadian province Ontario is experimenting with a basic income project which allows its citizens to receive a monthly allowance money for living expenses. People living in Ontario will get their allowance money whether they work or not. A Similar type of experiment has already been proposed in Finland and the Netherlands.

 “We need it rolled out across Canada, and Quebec too is in the game, so there’s no reason why people and governments in other parts of this country need sit on the sidelines – it’s time for us all to get to work,” said Sheila Regehr, chairwoman of the Basic Income Canada Network.

Robots will steal your Job soon. In fact, they are slowly infiltrating Jobs that requires human workforce.Take any example of car manufacturers like Tesla and Ford, most of the vital works are done by robots. Interestingly, top car companies are already making automated cars that would drive most taxi drivers Jobless. Japan will be testing driver-less taxis this year on March 16. The Associated Press (AP) already has a robot that writes thousand of articles Per Month. Now, you can guess the nightmare upon writers if robot Journalist becomes too mainstream. With rapid advances in Artificial Intelligence, leading scientist like Stephen Hawking has even warned about Machine taking over humans.

  According to researchers from Oxford University, 47% of U.S. jobs will be overtaken by robots in the coming two decades. Though current Jobs will be replaced by robots, more new Jobs will likely to be created. It is highly skeptical that unemployment will rise. In 1962, President John F. Kennedy said, “If men have the talent to invent new machines that put men out of work, they have the talent to put those men back to work." 

MIT Technology Review's analysis of robot automation and Job is quite interesting. The analysis says,  "In 1900, 41 percent of Americans worked in agriculture; by 2000, it was only 2 percent. Likewise, the proportion of Americans employed in manufacturing has dropped from 30 percent in the post–World War II years to around 10 percent today—partly because of increasing automation, especially during the 1980s."

Leading economic theorist have proposed a solution called "Basic Income" to this employment doom. Basic Income is a universal basic income granted to all citizens of a country, whether they have a added income source or not. Basically, you will be paid by the Government whether you work or not. The money will be paid individually instead of households. Switzerland is already holding a national referendum this year to grant 2,500 Swiss francs (£1,700) a month to its citizens whether they work or not. Whether the proposed plan goes through or not, Switzerland will be the first country to vote on Basic Income.











 While people are doing as much as possible to harness the power of solar energy on Earth, a Japanese construction firm “The Shimizu Corporation” has gone to the extreme in the solar sector by proposing a plan to build a solar belt around the Moon’s 11,000 kilometer Equator.

The concept "LUNA RING" , proposed by shimizu, plans to build a ring around the Moon. Technically, you can say its a solar farm on the Moon to generate electricity on Earth.

A Chinese startup Faraday Future , backed by billionaire Jia Yueting  is investing $1 billion dollars on a US factory to tackle Tesla. The money will be used in building a electric car plant in California by 2017.

The startup is operating from a old Nissan research facility in California with 400 employees with former Tesla director Nick Sampson, heading the company as vice president.

“We will launch a single model and follow with a range of vehicles in a faster way than others have achieved,” Sampson said in a phone interview to the Telegraph. “We’re looking at seven different
vehicles.”.

MIT have developed a device that can see through a wall using Wi-Fi. The device called RF-capture transmits Wifi signals and then uses the reflection of those signals to analyze the shape and size of the matter over the wall.


The device works by transmitting wifi signals over the wall and uses the reflection from the other side to be processed by software that analyzes the data and pieces to find out what is there on the other side.


 


While there has been a lot of buzz about self driving cars in America, Robot buses could be the next trend now. French company Easymilewill test its Robot buses in San Ramon, California.  It will be one of its unique kind that will run on its own with the help of GPS on pre programmed route. It will also use laser sensors to keep obstacles out of its way.
