Men's Club Breakfast + Blood Drive
Sunday, August 19, 9:00 AM-1:00 PM.
As Summer is a time when the need for Blood is great and the supply low, please join us for the Congregation Brith Shalom Men’s Club Late Summer Blood Drive. Donating blood is one of the best ways that you can help another person, and you can help as many as three people with your donation, so please donate if you can!
I want to thank everyone who donated at our June 24 Early Summer Blood Drive. Assuming your health situation has stayed the same, and you haven’t done any exotic traveling, anyone who last donated at our last blood drive, except for those who donated double red cells, should be able to donate on August 19. If you have any doubts about your eligibility to donate blood, please call the Gulf Coast Regional Blood Center at (713) 790 – 1200.
If you have any other questions, please contact me by email or phone – (713) 664-9511 (H)/ (713) 444 – 9697(C).
Please be sure to bring a photo ID. And don't forget about the Bagel Nosh! Thank you for being a blood donor!
First Men's Club Breakfast of the Fall season! All are invited! Bring your teens - it's important that they hear this!
Humans, Machines, and Work: The Future is Now
Sunday, August 19, 10:00 am.
Presented by Dr. Moshe Y. Vardi, Rice University.
Automation, driven by technological progress, has been increasing inexorably for the past several decades. Two schools of economic thinking have for many years been engaged in a debate about the potential effects of automation on jobs: will new technology spawn mass unemployment, as the robots take jobs away from humans? Or will the jobs robots take over create demand for new human jobs?
I will present data that demonstrate that the concerns about automation are valid. In fact, technology has been hurting working-class people for the past 40 years. The discussion about humans, machines and work tends to be a discussion about some undetermined point in the far future. But it is time to face reality. The future is now.
