Robotics have become an increasingly integral part of everyday life. Advancements in robotic technologies and artificial intelligence have increasingly made robots viable in everyday settings. iRobot is playing a major role in popularizing the consumer robot and continues to spearhead innovation in the space. Despite such promising technological trends, iRobot has seen its shares plummet over the past year. iRobot (IRBT) has been greatly impacted by the unpredictable US-China trade war. Moreover, a growing number of companies are starting to compete for market share in the consumer robotics segment.

Hierarchies are everywhere. It is often argued that they are a social construct, invented to allow certain people (such as white men) to have power over others. But not everyone agrees. While promoting his new book, 12 Rules for Life: An Antidote to Chaos, psychology professor Jordan Peterson, of the University of Toronto, has sparked debate by arguing that hierarchies are in fact natural to some extent. To prove his point, Peterson uses the example of lobsters, which humans share a common evolutionary ancestor with. Peterson argues that, like humans, lobsters exist in hierarchies and have a nervous system attuned…

The Joongang Daily has an interesting article today dealing with the problems of security on social networking sites in Korea. It quotes a Facebook representative in Korea as saying that Koreans have a relatively low awareness of social network security. I would suggest that this is part of the broader cultural differences in thinking about and using social networking sites, as discussed in earlier posts. Cyworld is dramatically different from Facebook with the latter being introduced over four years later in the U.S. According to eMarketer, 61.4 percent of Internet users worldwide have an SNS account, up from 51.4 percent…

Global Business August 16, 2019 Corporate executives believe that consumers will increasingly prefer locally or regionally produced products. It wasn’t so long ago — just a few years — that globalization was a dominant business theme. Today, many companies are creeping in the opposite direction. In a survey of 444 C-suite executives by management consulting firm A.T. Kearney, almost half (46%) of them said it was “likely” that over the next year more consumers will prefer local, sustainable, and personalized products. A third (33%) of the participants found that trend to be “unlikely.” The 13-point spread between the two responses…

Under the motto e pluribus unum (from many, one), U.S. presidents frequently remind Americans that they share the immigrant experience of beginning anew in the land of opportunity.1 Immigration is widely considered to be in the national interest, since it permits individuals to better themselves as it strengthens the United States. For its first 100 years, the United States facilitated immigration, welcoming foreigners to settle a vast country. Beginning in the 1880s, an era of qualitative immigration restrictions began as certain types of immigrants were barred: prostitutes, workers with contracts that tied them to a particular employer for several years,…
