There is a critical skills gap Technology rapidly changes the workplace and the skills demanded, immediately making current workers less employable. Meanwhile, education systems are slow to change in terms of the creation of new skills. As the demand for new skills increases, the challenge will be to anticipate what those skills might be. For some the answer is science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) skills as well as coding so that people can develop or work with the technology. An alternative approach is to think about the kind of work that technology cannot replace. The Oxford Martin School studies the vulnerability of jobs to automation point to those that draw most on creative and social skills, and complex perception and manipulation. Future workers need to make themselves “immune” to automation as much as possible. I believe that this does not mean that basic skills do not matter. In fact, we are seeing high returns to cognitive skills, especially non-routine skills. These skills are: Problem-solving skills to think critically and analyze Learning skills to acquire new knowledge Communication skills, including reading and writing Personal skills for self-management, making sound judgments and managing risks Social skills for collaboration, teamwork, management, leadership, and conflict resolutionK: Law

The list of fatalities includes small-time dealers and people who sold the occasional joint to a friend, as well as people suspected of dealing in more serious drugs like crack or meth, but who were found to be in possession of only marijuana after the fact. The police uncovered a total of .2 grams of marijuana at Westcott's residence, not enough to fill a typical joint. • Trevon Cole of Las Vegas, who was targeted for a raid after undercover officers purchased 1.8 ounces of the drug from him. The raid turned out no firearms and a small amount of marijuana. But the deadly raids on suspected marijuana dealers underscore how drug enforcement can become a greater threat to life and safety than drug use itself. The Times' data shows that drugs are the primary driver of SWAT raids that turn deadly.V: Naval science
