Summary
"Home DNA testing companies, such as 23 and Me and AncestryDNA, are at peak popularity, fulfilling our desires to know where we come from and what our future might look like. But questions have arisen about who owns test results and whether testing companies have the right to sell customers' data to pharmaceutical companies and other outlets. Yet home DNA tests have been credited with catching criminals, such as the Golden State Killer. Containing viewpoints from diverse voices in the field, this volume examines the controversies surrounding home DNA tests."-- Provided by publisher.

Summary
Ever since Israel ended its occupation of Gaza in 2005, Islamist group Hamas and other militant groups in Gaza have created conflicts with Israel. In 2007, Israel instituted a blockade of the Gaza Strip, restricting border crossings and access to necessities such as food, water, and power. Israel maintains that the intent of the blockade is to eliminate Hamas's ability to launch rockets into Israel. The Palestinians charge that the blockade effectively weakens Hamas and constitutes suffering and human rights violations among Gaza's citizens. In this informative and provocative resource, essay authors share their unique perspectives on this contentious issue.

Summary
There have been many benefits to automation, including affordable pricing and accessibility of goods through mass marketing, but its impact on the workforce also has the potential to cripple society. While automation saves billions of dollars for corporations, it also eliminates jobs from the workforce. Advancements in artificial intelligence mean that manufacturing jobs are not the only sector to fall victim to job displacement; experts predict that many white-collar jobs soon will be carried out by computers. In this resource, experts predict how the labor market will be restructured and how humans can successfully adapt to these changes.
