Midwifery may well be the oldest healing profession known to humans. The word “midwife,” derived from old English, means “with woman.” In French the word for midwife, sage femme, means “wise woman.” The Danish word for midwife, jordmoder, means “earth mother” and the Icelandic word, ljosmodir, means “mother of light.” In most cultures midwives have enjoyed a place of honor, respected for their remarkable skills, wisdom and prowess as healers. Yet in the United States midwives are as endangered as the spotted owl or the gray wolf. And like these animals, midwives face significant threats to their way of life. The United States is one of the few countries in the modern world to have ever outlawed midwives. In 1923 there were about 60,000 midwives practicing in the United States. By the 1960s traditional midwives were all but extinct. Slowly midwives have been making a comeback, but it has not been easy. Today there are roughly 8000-10,000 practicing midwives…

We are on the cusp of one of the fastest, deepest, most consequential disruptions of transportation in history. By 2030, within 10 years of regulatory approval of autonomous vehicles (AVs), 95% of U.S. passenger miles traveled will be served by on-demand autonomous electric vehicles owned by fleets, not individuals, in a new business model we call “transportas-a-service” (TaaS). The TaaS disruption will have enormous implications across the transportation and oil industries, decimating entire portions of their value chains, causing oil demand and prices to plummet, and destroying trillions of dollars in investor value — but also creating trillions of dollars in new business opportunities, consumer surplus and GDP growth…

The Boy Who Believes He Was Lou Gehrig In A Past Life

Cathy Byrd’s 2-year-old son, Christian Haupt, was a baseball prodigy who spent countless hours pitching and hitting balls, and insisted on wearing a baseball uniform every day. In 2011 his outstanding abilities even landed the boy a small part in the Adam Sandler movie That’s My Boy. But in her new memoir, The Boy Who Knew Too Much, Byrd shares an even more improbable story that even she had trouble believing at first: She claims that Christian was the reincarnation of baseball legend Lou Gehrig, who played for the Yankees nearly a century ago…
