Bible Verses of the Day

1 Now after the Sabbath, toward the dawn of the first day of the week, Mary Magdalene and the other Mary went to see the tomb. 2 And behold, there was a great earthquake, for an angel of the Lord descended from heaven and came and rolled back the stone and sat on it. 3 His appearance was like lightning, and his clothing white as snow. 4 And for fear of him the guards trembled and became like dead men. 5 But the angel said to the women, “Do not be afraid, for I know that you seek Jesus who was crucified. 6 He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place where he lay. [Matthew 28:1-6, ESV]

Younger generations aren't taking the reins from their elders as they once did, instead opting for jobs in less labor-intensive, better-paying industries.

To solve the problem some US farmers are looking to emerging robotics and AI tools. "We think about solutions to solving that problem, and we do think that advances in technology could help ease some of the labor load," says Emily Buckman, director of government affairs at the American Farm Bureau Federation, an industry trade association..
