'We have to leave now': San Francisco man describes terrifying Everest traffic jam Woody Hartman had only been on the summit of Mount Everest for a few minutes when his Sherpa guide grabbed him. "We have to leave now," he said, "Or we’ll be stuck here."Perhaps

The answers are strange and terrifying . Please let me die before this dystopian future takes shape. Then they came up with 100 possible jobs that could exist in the future , according to the research and the testimony of these experts.

Terrifying moment Indian funfair ride crashes down, killing two people and injuring 29 others. The horrific video shows the joyride Peta White, a science and environmental education lecturer at Deakin University, says many of the jobs our younger generation will do in the future " don ' t even exist yet ".

Right now we seem to be coming to grips with the idea that, years from now, many current jobs we take for granted will have transformed beyond recognition or, worse, cease to exist.

What to expect from Apple’s WWDC 2019 keynote

What to expect from Apple’s WWDC 2019 keynote iOS 13, macOS 10.15, and more coming next week from Apple Animoji's were a big deal at last year's WWDC. Spring is the season of developers conferences, when tech companies showcase this big releases for the rest of the year. So far, 2019 has been fairly mundane. We’ve already heard about some small updates from Microsoft, Google, and Facebook. This coming Monday, June 3, it'll be time for Tim Cook and the Apple clan to close things out with their World Wide Developers Conference. There were no real world-shakers at last year’s conference.

What could your future job be ? Griffith/Deakin/Ford Right now we seem to be coming to grips with the idea that, years from now, many current jobs we take. The answers are strange and terrifying . Please… let me die before this dystopian future takes shape.

Jobs of the future are strange , terrifying and ' don ' t even exist yet '. As the population ages and older workers are making up more and more of the labor force, some employers are taking notice and adjusting their own practices to retain valuable experience and skills.

But what kind of jobs will replace them?

Griffith University and Deakin University recently teamed up with Ford in Australia in an attempt to tackle that question. The answers are strange and terrifying. Please... let me die before this dystopian future takes shape.

First, a bit of a disclaimer. Studies of these kind, funded at least in part by a company with some sort of message in mind, have to be taken with a grain of salt.

But regardless, the study seems to have merit. After studying the existing research around the topic of future jobs, the research team identified a series of industries and consulted with experts familiar with "cutting edge developments" in this field to help guide the discussion and make predictions.

Then they came up with 100 possible jobs that could exist in the future, according to the research and the testimony of these experts.

Some of these jobs make a lot of sense.

Take the de-extinction geneticist, for example.

De-extinction is a topic we've covered extensively here at CNET. Scientists are already looking to CRISPR to find ways to protect existing species, or carefully bring back animals that could help provide ecological balance.

Ethical Hacker is another role the study identified. Again, CNET has already covered that in-depth. That role, as described in this study already exists.

But things get a little bit weirder.

How about a job as a "child assistant bot programmer." This study expects that "humanoid robots" will help children play safely.

"These bots can be personalised and programmed to align with family preferences, values and rules," reads the study. "They read nursery rhymes, personalise stories, teach basic numeracy and language skills, develop general knowledge, support the learning of spatial skills, and use coding games to develop digital literacies."

Apple’s 16-inch MacBook Pro could land in September

Apple’s 16-inch MacBook Pro could land in September IHS Markit analyst Jeff Lin believes that Apple’s rumored “all-new” 16-inch MacBook Pro will be unveiled in September, as noted by Forbes. 

The idea that many of today's students will take jobs that don ' t exist yet is a myth. But that does not stop people from repeating it. Bad, fictional stats about the future of work are warping the conversation about the future of education – amplifying pressure to change to meet expectations that

even though he became interested in exploring the ocean that he first used a pair of underwater goggles you might even know that he was the first secretary of the treasury and founded America’s

The study also mentions "cricket farmer" as a potential future job. Makes sense, since food shortages are a real issue and crickets are a great source of protein.

How about "memory optimiser," a job that sounds like something straight out of Total Recall. They will "augment people's working memory capacities through digital implant technologies, and judicious memory erasure." Brilliant.

Perhaps my favourite: the "nostalgist." The study predicts that, as people live longer, there will be a market for people who can recreate the best parts of life from 80 to 100 years ago.

"Nostalgists combine interior design expertise with personal digital research to design a personalised experience for their clients," says the study. "People may wish to live in environments designed by nostalgists, or to visit them virtually with the assistance of a virtual reality experience creator."

Peta White, a science and environmental education lecturer at Deakin University, says many of the jobs our younger generation will do in the future "don't even exist yet".

"Our aim with this project," she adds, "is to help parents, educators and industry professionals support the next generation in their future career ambitions."
