Hong Kong mulls South East Asia pig imports as pork prices jump on China swine fever outbreak

Hong Kong mulls South East Asia pig imports as pork prices jump on China swine fever outbreakHONG KONG/BEIJING (Reuters) - Hong Kong is looking into importing live pigs from countries in Southeast Asia, including Malaysia, to supplement a dwindling supply from mainland China that has caused pork prices to surge, Food and Health Secretary Sophia Chan said on Wednesday. The city had been importing 4,000 pigs a day from mainland China for slaughter by local processors, but that number began declining late last year and has dropped to just 1,700 per day after deadly African swine fever ravaged China's hog herd.

Study suggests AI’s disruptive effect on jobs will hit higher on economic and education scales

Study suggests AI’s disruptive effect on jobs will hit higher on economic and education scalesWhen experts talk about the disruptive effects of artificial intelligence, they tend to focus on low-paid laborers - but a newly published study suggests higher-paid, more highly educated workers will be increasingly exposed to job challenges. The study puts Seattle toward the top of the list for AI-related job disruption. The analysis, which draws on work by researchers at Stanford University and the Brookings Institution, makes use of a novel technique that connects AI-related patents with the job descriptions for different professions. Stanford researcher Michael Webb extracted entries from the tens of millions of patents in a Google database, as… Read More

NASA says much-anticipated meteor outburst could be a bust for the West Coast

NASA says much-anticipated meteor outburst could be a bust for the West CoastSkywatchers say parts of the world could see a brief, brilliant meteor outburst known as the Alpha Monocerotids on Thursday night, but NASA notes that it'll be at the wrong time for the U.S. West Coast. Why it's a big deal: The meteor shower - which takes its name from the brightest star in the constellation Monoceros, the Unicorn - is a rare beast. It yields significant shooting stars only when Earth's orbit runs through a particular patch of space, as it did in 1985 and 1995. This time around, meteor scientists Peter Jenniskens and Esko Lyytinen say the best-placed… Read More
