The number of skilled jobs is already starting to overtake the number of qualified people available to fill them. market trends, news research and surveys resources

When the media report on cloning in the news, they are usually talking about ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics
Information Technology and Human Development
", or the invention of tool use, as a previous stage in a key historical sequence. At their root, these developments reflect fundamentally new stages in human harnessing of energy . Before the Mechanical Revolution our ancestors, and virtually all other living creatures, were confined to the energy or force generated and applied by their own bodies. Tools allowed that energy or force to be focussed (e.g., with a knife blade or spear point) beyond the natural limits of our fists or nails or teeth, or projected at a range beyond the limited reach of the body (such as with an arrow or again a spear point). The implications on ...
