I decided to share with you one more of my English tasks. Here I should have watched a TED video about jobs in future and then write a little text about it expressing my own thoughts. I like what I got in the end so sharing it here as well.
The video is here:
And my text is here:
I couldn’t agree more with this video on TED. It states many important challenges for the future jobs. We are not going to have a jobless future, but those jobs will definitely be more pleasant than nowadays jobs. That man said and I agree that in future we’ll need creativity, inventions and art rule the workplace. Any job that can be automatized will be automatized. And I like it. The main point I can conclude from here is that it is never too late to start learning and even more – today you can’t afford not learning anymore. Lazy people will stay beyond for sure. But in general I expect our future to be better than nowadays – people’s life will become more comfortable. We’ll have less routine tasks while amount of outstanding tasks will raise. My job is not likely to be replaced by technology in future, because it is Data Scientist who drives the innovation now. I think, the most boring and monotonous part of it – like building a model to test the hypothesis – will and should be replaced. While the part of idea generating or decision making is hard to be replaced by robots. It involves a lot of gathered knowledge together with common sense currently available to human only.
I think a lot about it and the opinion I formed looked surprising even to me so I decided to write about it.
We have a forest visiting resrtictions in Belarus (whole country actually) for a week already. The reason is fire hazard period. I don’t want to discuss danger now. I want to speak about personal attitude to this fact.
May-O-Days was shifted. One stage of city competitions was already cancelled. But many participants say: “We want to compete! Let’s make more competitions! Even if they are inside the city! Please!”. We moved one stage to the city forest from actual forest. Many people came to do orienteering. That’s nice and I’m happy!
But do I really want to break the restrictions? If saying personally – I don’t know. I have forests near the place in the city where I live, I won’t suffer. But what if saying in general? From organizing commitee point of view? If we’ll organize the next stage, many people will come.
I think, I don’t want to break the restrictions. Not because I’m afraid. And not even because I’m afraid to be punished. The reason is that I don’t see the sence of making an event “despite of everything”. I have a solid belief that you can’t make a positive event “despite of everything”. If the event was cancelled due some objective reason and you insist it should be organized because you want to compete – then my main advice to such sportsman is to go and train instead! Nobody is preventing you from visiting your neighbouhoods, even if the forests are closed. Why you are so crazy eager to go to the forest to compete? Yes, forest is important. It is very important, for sure. But sometimes not going to forest means care for it. Forest gives us a lot of happiness, I don’t want to stole any part of this happiness by breaking this rule. I won’t be calm if I understand that the forest is tired and doesn’t want to see the people while those people say to him “hey, forest, we’ll come and make an event for 500 people because we are eager to COMPETE!”
So this is what I wanted to say. A bit messy, but I hope that main idead is transferred to you. Thank you for your time and attention!
After I finished this hard work, I think, I’d write better if writing from scratch on a given topic and not trying to just translate the original Russian text. I’ll try next time.
I decided that I want to practice English more. I even made an additional Instagram account – so now I have @hannarud_by for my posts in
Russian or Random 🙂 (sorry, but this account is private as sometimes I post sensitive things there), and I also started @hannarud_com to share some duplicates with English subscripts. So I decided to do similar thing with the blog, but I’ll post them under english and en hashtags. If you don’t like it – don’t read it 😉 if you found a mistake – let me know. I’m about to obtain some certificate in English soon, so this would be helpful.
