US National Weather Service Declares State of Emergency for North-Eastern States

Severe blizzard warnings were issued throughout numerous states located in the North-Eastern states of the U.S., disrupting services and travel around the areas.
 
Winds reaching upwards of 60 mph had been reported, with authorities advising those wishing to hit the roads to abandon their plans and stay indoors. It has been reported that these storms had affected over 50 million people throughout the area.
 

 
Meteorologists had predicted that at its worst, snowfall could reach somewhere around 4 inches per hour, which had cities closing down roads, delay and cancelling flights in and out of their cities. Unless absolutely necessary, everyone was ordered to stay in their homes.
 

 
It has been reported that almost 7,000 flights were cancelled, as conditions were too terrible to risk any take-offs and landings, with the harsh winds blowing.

Trump Blames Obama for Recent Leaks

President Donald Trump has told he believes that the former President Barack Obama is behind the leaks within his administration and all the protests that Republicans have faced across the country.
 
The President attended an interview on Fox News’ “Fox and Friends,” where he was asked if he believed Obama was the responsible for the town hall protests against Republicans this month.
 

 
“It turns out his organization seems to do a lot of this organizing to some of the protests that these Republicans see around the country against you. Do you believe President Obama is behind it and if he is, is that a violation of the so-called unsaid presidents’ code?” was asked, to Trump.
 
“No, I think he is behind it. I also believe that it is politics, that’s the way it is,” President replied.
 
Then he referred to the leaks that have disorganized his first month of presidency.
 

 
“You never know what goes on behind the scenes. You know, you’re probably right, but who knows,” Trump said in the interview, a clip of which was released Monday night. “No, I believe Obama is behind it because his people did it. Some of the leaks probably came from them, which are severe because they are appalling concerning national security. But that’s politics. Regarding him being behind things, that’s politics. And it will probably continue.”
 
No one knows what’s going on behind Trump administration’s leaks, but when we talk about politicians, you have to believe one part and doubt about the other. Whether Trump is lying or Obama is using his organizations to create tension, you’ll never know what’s going on behind the scenes, as Trump himself said.

Bill Gates: “Robots Should Pay Taxes”

Bill Gates, known as one of the greatest inventors of our times, has surprised a lot of people after stating that robots that “steal human jobs” should pay taxes in an interview past Friday.
 
Gates, as we said, surprised a lot of people with his declarations, where he rants about the possibilities that robot taxes could bring to the country. He told Quartz that robot taxes might fund projects related to charity for elderly or even help kids to get into school.
 
“Right now, the human worker who does, say, $50,000 worth of work in a factory, that income is taxed, and you get income tax, Social Security tax, all those things,” said Gates. “If a robot comes in to do the same thing, you’d think that we’d tax the robot at a similar level.”
 

 
It is interesting that Bill Gates says this since he is the co-founder of Microsoft, one of the biggest companies in the world. A company that curiously manufactures computers and devices that are just robots at the end, so, you can imagine how much Bill would owe in taxes if we say that his creations have helped a lot of company bosses to increase the labor-saving efficiency throughout these years.
 
“Exactly how you’d do it, measure it, you know, it’s interesting for people to start talking about now,” Bill said. “Some of it can come from the profits that are generated by the labor-saving efficiency there. Some of it can come directly in some robot tax. I don’t think the robot companies are going to be outraged that there might be a tax. It’s OK.”
 

 
Maybe his company won’t be outraged by this, but most of them will surely are. If we start saying that businesses have to pay more taxes, then this is the biggest problem that business owners have to face at the time of paying salaries. This is the prime factor that leads those bosses to select machines over people, instead of helping people, this practice will only boost the hardship of most workers.
 
Robots already “stole” millions of jobs. Fortunately, they have been doing it for years, especially in the first world. Computers are robots, fax machines are robots, forage harvesters are robots, but until know, nobody had the nerve to talk about taxes for robots. It had to come from someone who’s already a billionaire.
