The shooting happened at a block of offices in Middleton, a suburb of Madison, Wisc., around 11:30EST Wednesday, with those struck by bullets rushed to hospital for treatment after. The gunman was shot dead by police. The gunman worked at an IT firm called WTS Paradigm based in the complex. He talked to an unnamed employee who saw one person shot in the shoulder. Four others are said to be receiving hospital treatment for their injuries. No word on why

More Jobs that may be in jeopardy.

Data entry clerks

Financial Analysts

A.I. is taking over. Computers can spot patterns and make trades faster than even the most eagle-eyed of human analysts. Machine learning tools are all the rage, while some estimates suggest that around 30 percent of banking sector jobs will be lost to A.I. within the next decade.

Telemarketers and customer service assistants

Smart chatbots can perform a lot of these tools easily.

Medics

Algorithms can make diagnoses about disease and computers are being used to make recommendations about the best cancer treatment. A.I. pharmacists, and wearable devices that can help treat physical disorders, or even robots carrying out surgery, there’s no doubt that cutting edge technology will have a big impact on a range of medical professions.

Construction workers or other manual labor jobs

humans still have an advantage over robots when it comes to dexterity. For example, Amazon’s warehouses use robots developed by Kiva Systems to move around racks of shelves and bring them to stationary human workers who then pick the required items off the shelf. Bricklaying robots can lay bricks, but require humans to do the grouting. This balance will shift as robots get more dexterous, but for now many humans will find themselves working alongside robots rather than being flat-out replaced by them.

Musicians and other artists

Artificial intelligence systems which can generate stock music, or create images based on a written description. These tools will only become more advanced. And due to the ability to scale this tech, they’ll be able to carry out far more work than an individual human creative.

Woman claims that just after midnight on September 3, while traveling in a lift, her phone “became extremely hot”. She then claims to have stopped using the phone, and placed it in her bag. Shortly after, she said she “heard a whistling and screeching sound, and…noticed thick smoke” pouring out from her purse.

Trapped alone in the lift and “and scared to death,” she dropped the phone and started smashing elevator buttons, the thick smoke making it hard to see.

Reaching the lobby, she kicked the sizzling phone out of the elevator.

The mobile didn’t stop burning until a good Samaritan grabbed it with a cloth and plunked it into a bucket of water, Chung claims in the Queens Supreme Court lawsuit.

The fire left her unable to contact clients and ruined everything in her bag, claims Chung, who called the experience totally “traumatic

Research from the 2016 National Youth Tobacco Survey of more than 20,000 middle school and high school students reported that More than 5,200 students reported have tried e-cigarettes,according to the journal JAMA Pediatrics. But the researchers were especially interested in what else kids were vaping with the device. About one out of every 11 students surveyed, or 9 percent, answered, “Yes, I have used an e-cigarette device with marijuana, THC [tetrahydrocannabinol] or hash oil, or THC wax.”

The use of marijuana in these products is of particular concern because cannabis use among youth can adversely affect learning and memory and may impair later academic achievement and education. Vaping is generally considered less dangerous than smoking, because burning tobacco or marijuana generates chemicals that are harmful to lungs. But there is little research on e-cigarettes’ long-term effects, including whether they help smokers quit.
