AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce As the War in Ukraine escalates, the G7 agreed on a Missile defense system for Ukrainians, capped oil prices, limiting Putin’s revenue. Turkey allowed Finland and Sweden to join NATO expanded protection to these countries, too! Let’s hope the new weapons are deployed quickly and give Zelenskiy the opportunity to regain territory. Meanwhile, Putin’s bombing continues!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce The War in Ukraine is one sided. Ukrainian rely on Russian Cold War weapons and Russian’s are capable of firing 60,000 rounds in a day. US & NATO weapons are slow to arrive and require training. Since Ukrainian limitations are known, getting them up to speed with upgraded weapons is a priority. Especially, since Putin shows no sign of slowing down. his assault. Yesterday’s attack on the shopping Mall and Kyiv shows the level of brutality endured .

Our Future is here and we have to plan for our survival!

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Russia now attacking Kyiv & a kindergarten. More missiles are being used by Russia and they’re giving nuclear tipped weapons to Belarus? 123 days in and Zelenskiy needs weapons to counter an attack. War: a waste of human life and resources. A colonial concept with no place in our contemporary lives. To stop the next War , we need an international coalition ready to protect the Sovereignty of Countries.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce The World’s leaders must talk to Putin and stop the slaughter in Ukraine. Putin is firing his missiles indiscriminately, they’re fired without replacement. No matter Putin has an endless supply of soldiers to send to the front. Rather than a War that ends quickly, this War can drag on for months , with a devastated Ukraine and a world wide famine. Ukrainian wheat must get to market! What Nations will help this effort? Turkey is negotiating and it’s not enough. Why let Putin hold the World hostage?

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Marine heat waves causing bleaching of sponges off New Zealand, Spain has lost it giant mollusks, what species will die off next. Marine heating is a closed loop. Once the ocean temperatures lose sea ice the oceans form a warm feedback loop. Too bad we have no Global platforms in place to recommend and implement Climate Mitigation.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Algorithm discriminated against individuals seeking to purchase a home using Facebook driven ads. It’s time to rein in AI, in most industries their built in biases make it impossible to hire people. They should be regulated and/ or removed when peoples livelihoods and lives depend on an honest assessment of them and their credentials and abilities. Algorithms are mathematical tools, they analyze data at best. They should be eliminated from HR decisions and other areas of our society. They’re a data aid to people and can’t make decisions.

AmericaSpeaks TheVoiceOfJoyce Amazon’s Bezos pledges to change how Labor is treated or will be responsible for running out of Labor in 2 years. Poor working conditions, cause excessive accidents and burnout in Amazon warehouses, leading to 150% turnover and 6.8 accidents per 100 people. The norm is 3.3 accidents per 100 people. Still high. No wonder today’s workers are distressed in retail. We’re people and not Robots. Perhaps the new generation of Moguls ought to study successful businesses of the past to model new business? People are not machines and need tools to do their jobs. There can be decent working conditions, benefits & safety with productivity! Bring back Sectional Unionization and allow Unions to negotiate for all Retail Labor. Strengthen Labor Laws at the NLRB and enforce existing Law. Add a fair minimum wage Federally.
