More Than 1 In 4 Car Crashes Involve Cellphone Use
Laws against cell phone use have not reduced accident rates.
Why is it so hard to understand that safety with cars is the ONLY priority. A text or a phone call can wait.
If anybody that needs a law to understand that shouldn't be driving. It's that simple.

Woman Attacked In San Francisco Bar For Wearing Google Glass
"Given that much more hidden spy cameras are available for far less than the $1500 cost of Glass, what will it take for general acceptance to finally take hold?"

Star Trek Economics
Still, the mechanism "you do something, you get something in return" seems to work better than "do nothing and get stuff for free" since well, you figure it out...
The real problem begins (or it starts to get interesting) where too much of the things that can be done is being automated and there isn't enough work to do for less educated people.

Cheerios To Go GMO-Free
So what happens is that seed production is in the hands of one big corporation. Monsanto.
It's suing farmers for accidental cross pollination or in other words they pollute the crops of farmers with their product and then they sure them.
Farmers, thinking their production will go up, don't realize their expenses go up three times, making their profit less.
What already has happened, is that a lot of farmers use the same seeds and, oh, surprise, there was a disease that targeted their expensive crops... Aaaannnd it was all gone. The harvest of a very big region ruined. In India this has already led to whole (cotton) farmer communities to go bankrupt.
Great job GMO.
Root cause: we are with too many people on this earth. GMO will not solve that problem.
