Robot-Proof: Higher Education in the Age of Artificial Intelligence [Audiobook] by Joseph E. Aoun
English | April 10th, 2018 | ASIN: B07BQZRXDC | MP3@64 kbps | 5 hrs 5 mins | 140.19 MB
Narrator: John Glouchevitch

In Robot-Proof, Northeastern University president Joseph Aoun proposes a way to educate the next generation of college students to invent, to create, and to discover - to fill needs in society that even the most sophisticated artificial intelligence agent cannot. A "robot-proof" education, Aoun argues, is not concerned solely with topping up students' minds with high-octane facts. Rather, it calibrates them with a creative mindset and the mental elasticity to invent, discover, or create something valuable to society - a scientific proof, a hip-hop recording, a web comic, a cure for cancer.

Lust on Trial: Censorship and the Rise of American Obscenity in the Age of Anthony Comstock

Lust on Trial: Censorship and the Rise of American Obscenity in the Age of Anthony Comstock by Amy Werbel
English | April 10th, 2018 | ASIN: B0785H99SS, ISBN: 0231175221 | 408 Pages | EPUB | 32.81 MB

Anthony Comstock was America’s first professional censor. From 1873 to 1915, as Secretary of the New York Society for the Suppression of Vice, Comstock led a spirited crusade against lasciviousness, salaciousness, and obscenity that resulted in the confiscation and incineration of more than three million pictures, postcards, and books he personally judged to be obscene. But as Amy Werbel shows in this rich cultural and social history, Comstock’s campaign to rid America of vice in fact led to greater acceptance of the materials he deemed objectionable, offering a cautionary tale about the unintended consequences of censorship.

In The New Jim Crow, she explains how this government initiative has led to America's black citizens being imprisoned on a colossal scale.
