The Data Examiner – (Notable) Remarks:

** The truth is the kindest thing we can give folks in the end. —- Harriet Beecher Stowe, from “The Pearl of Orr’s Island”

** A study by researchers at Yale published three years ago found that listeners have a better-than-random chance of discerning whether someone has a college degree by listening to the person speak just seven words. Put simply, your tongue gives you away. —- Peter Coy

** “No man treats a motorcar as foolishly as he treats another human being. When the car will not go, he does not attribute its annoying behavior to sin; he does not say, ‘You are a wicked motorcar, and I shall not give you any more petrol until you go.’ He attempts to find out what is wrong and to set it right. An analogous way of treating human beings is, however, considered to be contrary to the truths of our holy religion.” —- Bertrand Russell, “Has Religion Made Useful Contributions to Civilization?”(1930)

** Okay fine, I’ll give the baby wine! – Minnesota’s Lieutenant Governor Peggy Flanagan last week had this to say about medical sex changes for minors, which have fallen sharply out of favor across Europe but are just gaining steam here: “This is life-affirming and lifesaving healthcare. When our children tell us who they are, it is our job as grown-ups to listen and to believe them. That’s what it means to be a good parent.” As a mom, this is so comforting. Every night when I pour a glass of red wine for myself, our daughter desperately reaches for it. Yes. My six-month-old is a wino (wow it feels good to say it). Listen to babies telling us who they are! Mine is saying “Pass the cab, I’ve had a day.” —- Nellie Bowles

The Data Examiner – Facts:

** The Memphis police gave Tyre Nichols at least 71 commands in 13 minutes. Many were contradictory or impossible to obey.

** California Democratic Rep. Maxine Waters continued her longstanding practice of funneling campaign cash to her daughter to run a lucrative operation during the 2022 election cycle, which netted the younger Waters another six figures in payments. Karen Waters pocketed $192,300 from her mother’s campaign to keep her “slate mailer” operation afloat between January 2021 and December 2022, a Fox News Digital review of Federal Election Commission filings shows. The setup involves outside campaigns paying Waters’ campaign to appear on the slate mailers – or endorsement mailers – sent out to constituents in the Los Angeles area.

** Grateful Dead legend Jerry Garcia’s relatives are truckin’ out of California, apparently because the Golden State’s high taxes and anti-business climate are just too harsh on the family’s marijuana business. Garcia Hand Picked, which the late guitar wizard’s family started in 2020, told the company just can’t make a go of it in the Golden State. An industry expert blamed high taxes, competition from the black market, and soaring crime for the decision to pull out of California.

As AI Tools Have Become More Robust, Automation Experts Have Philosophized About Replacing Vast Swaths Of Workers

McKinsey Global Institute recently predicted that 45M workers, or ~28% of the entire American workforce, would lose their jobs to automation by 2030. Most automation efforts have been centered around eradicating so-called lower-level and blue-collar jobs like warehouse workers, truckers, clerical assistants, and food prep workers. More recently, AI has threatened white-collar roles like accountants and journalists. But while executives at the top of the corporate food chain celebrate the cost-cutting virtues of AI displacement, they rarely seem to turn the spotlight on themselves. The incentives for workplace automation are largely financial. So why not start by replacing the highest-paid employee of them all – the CEO? … At Fortune 500 firms, the average CEO pay is now ~$16M per year. Over the past 45 years: The average CEO pay has gone up 1,460%. The average worker pay has only gone up 18%. As a result, today’s average CEO is paid the equivalent of 399 median workers. At larger companies, this ratio is often many multiples higher: For instance, in 2021, Amazon CEO Andy Jassey received a package worth $213M – equal to the collective wages of 6,474 Amazon employees. That’s enough workers to fully staff four fulfillment centers.
