Glassdoor's best jobs of the year include titles like Data Scientist, Data Engineer and Analytics Manager. The rankings were determined by the combination of three factors: number of job openings, salary and overall job satisfaction.

The other quality they all have in common? These jobs are less likely to fall victim to automation. That's because they require "soft-skills" like creativity, judgement and flexibility, which are all extremely difficult to automate, Glassdoor Chief Economist Andrew Chamberlain told Business Insider. "Having them allows workers to team up with technology to be more productive, rather than simply being replaced by it."

Why it matters: The Trump administration is concerned about jobs — particularly lower-skilled jobs — disappearing as technology advances. It's also pushing companies to hire U.S. workers for highly-skilled jobs rather than relying on temporary visas to bring in foreign workers with advanced degrees. These automation-resistant jobs will help fuel the urgency around creating a stronger pipeline of U.S. workers who have the engineering skills to fill these roles domestically.

Large coronavirus outbreaks leading to high death rates

Data: The COVID Tracking Project; Chart: Sara Wise/Axios

Many of the states where coronavirus cases have recently skyrocketed are also seeing the highest death rates in the nation, a painful reminder that wherever the virus goes, death eventually follows.

Between the lines: Deaths usually lag behind cases by a few weeks. Given America's record-high case counts, it's reasonable to expect that death rates across the country will continue to rise in tandem.

Pandemic scrambles Americans' acceptance of science

The pandemic is throwing a wrench into Americans' understanding of science, which has big implications for climate change.

Driving the news: Recent focus groups in battleground states suggest some voters are more skeptical of scientists in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, while surveys reveal the persistence of a deep partisan divide.
