  • Trump Blocked Me on Twitter and It’s Costing Me My Career

    Most of my writing is about the Trump administration. In fact, my mandate from Pacific Standard is “Trump and the law.” On Twitter, the bulk of my recent follower growth and new relationships with others in the politico-legal sphere have come out of responding quickly when the president tweets and engaging the threads of conversation that flow from those tweets. So when President Donald Trump blocked me in June, apparently for suggesting that Russia influenced the outcome of the 2016 election, he harmed me professionally. Even though I knew @realDonaldTrump was important to my career, it still took me at...

    They're known as some of the most inspirational businessmen in history. But the success of industry giants such as Sir Richard Branson and Lord Sugar is actually putting working-class boys off of further education. A number of high profile celebrities who have gone on to make their fortunes after dropping out of education or choosing to not go to university are inspiring young men to following in their footsteps, according to a new report.

    Every January, Glassdoor publishes its list of the best jobs of the year. For 2016, the top spot goes to data scientist. "It isn't a big surprise to see data scientist at No. 1 this year because it's one of the hottest and fastest growing jobs we're seeing right now," says Dr. Andrew Chamberlain, Glassdoor's chief economist. "Since all companies have an online presence these days, they all need people who know how to manage and store data that helps them make better business decisions, compared to years ago when businesses didn't have data management at their fingertips to review...

    Students on Cabrillo College Nursing Program’s waiting list are postponing their careers for six years or more due to high demand and a new state-approved application called the multicriteria selection process. While aspiring nurses are no longer being added to Cabrillo’s waiting list, hundreds remain on it, each hoping to nab one of only 60 slots available every year.

    If you are trying to figure out what to major in at college, then take a look at typical salaries for each major. After all, odds are that college will cost you — or your son, daughter or grandchild — a lot. It makes sense to get a handle on the payback. Clarifying your career-earnings prospects can aid your career planning and retirement planning. It turns out that the highest pay goes to people whose undergraduate degrees were in sciences related to energy exploration, production and transportation, according to PayScale.com. Majors in computer sciences and engineering and related fields also...

    With the rise of flexible working schedules, the freelance economy, and video conferencing, more Americans are getting their jobs done without ever heading into an office, according to new data from the American Time Use Survey released by the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Among all workers, 23% report spending all or part of their day working from home. That’s up from less than 19% in 2003, the first year for which there’s comparable data.

    Mischa Barton filed suit Tuesday against her mother, Nuala Barton, claiming she's withheld her daughter's career earnings and otherwise exploited her fame. The complaint, filed in the Los Angeles Superior Court, reads like a soap opera: "This action arises from the tragic tale of a greedy stage mother posing as a talent manager who, instead of acting in the best interest of her daughter/client, schemed to defraud her unsuspecting victim."

    In the autumn of 2013 I was in my first term of school in a decade. I had two jobs; my husband, Tom, was working full-time; and we were raising our two small girls. It was the first time in years that we felt like maybe things were looking like they’d be OK for a while. After a gruelling shift at work, I was unwinding online when I saw a question from someone on a forum I frequented: Why do poor people do things that seem so self-destructive? I thought I could at least explain what I’d seen and how...

    As he stepped out on stage last year to hawk his big TV comeback in front of advertisers, comedy great Robin Williams joked it was 'nice to have a job where the checks will clear.' After making his name as the eccentric and beloved alien on 1970s TV hit Mork and Mindy, Robin transferred his attentions to Hollywood with a stream of box office hits. But after acclaim and an Oscar, the movie career started to dry up and the actor signed up for CBS show The Crazy Ones, a small-screen comedy about a 'renowned and slightly unhinged' advertising genius/madman....

    Truth Revolt ^ | 5/1/14 | Paul Bois
    On Thursday, TruthRevolt Editor-in-Chief Ben Shapiro appeared on The Kelly File with Megyn Kelly to share his personal concerns about the possible slippery slope of the NBA slapping a lifetime ban on Clipper's owner Donald Sterling for racist views he expressed on an illegally obtained recording, rather than any racist actions he had taken. "What we are seeing here is that thoughts matter significantly more than actions," said Shapiro, before highlighting prior lawsuits against Sterling alleging racial discrimination toward minorities. "Now he says the wrong thing and the NBA wants to oust him. So we live in an era, unfortunately,...

    TIME ^ | 04/11/2014 | Michael Bernick
    This month, high school seniors across America are receiving college decision letters of acceptance and rejection. Many of these students, and their parents, will think that where they go to college will significantly affect their employment future. They think wrong. Today, whether you go to college retains some importance in your employment options. But where you go to college is of almost no importance. Whether your degree, for example, is from UCLA or from less prestigious Sonoma State matters far less than your academic performance and the skills you can show employers. Research on the impact of college selection has...

    If you live in certain buildings in New York City, you get to know your doorman. The weekend guy in my building, Gene, knew I was a business reporter, and on Saturday he asked me what his son should study when he starts City College next year. (City College, by the way, remains the primary option — and a stellar one — for advanced higher ed in New York for the children of what remains of New York's working class.) Anyway, off the top of my head, I was at a loss. I mostly cover energy, an area that obviously...

    Last year, Susan Patton, a Princeton grad and the mother of two sons at the elite college, outraged feminists when she wrote an open letter to the Daily Princetonian telling female students to find a husband on campus before they graduate. The red alert — which argued that these Ivy League college girls “would never again be surrounded by this concentration of men who would be worthy of you” — went viral with more than 100 million hits. ... even in the dog-eat-dog dating jungle that is New York, there is hope for single career women between the ages of...

    Those who argue that higher education is a major league time suck just got more ammunition in a report from the U. S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS). “The most new jobs projected for 2022 are expected to be in occupations requiring a high school diploma or equivalent,” BLS reports. “These occupations are projected to add 4.6 million new jobs. About a quarter of these new jobs will be in healthcare and social assistance. Another major area of projected growth for people with a high school diploma or equivalent is construction, which is expected to add almost 1 million jobs...

    Warning: Your Nice Boss May Be Killing Your Career September 04, 2013 Chris spent years working for a supportive, encouraging manager at a major technology company. In fact, his boss raved about him. His manager gave him top ratings in the performance evaluations, gave him space to do his work and had never been controlling. He was, according to Chris, terribly, unswervingly nice. Picture perfect boss, right? Wrong. (Read more here from the original Harvard Business Review post here). His manager had been in the company for 20 years. He had learned how to survive in the bureaucracy: don’t make...

    Dog Tired Dogs cage-free setting offers owner new beginning Glendale — Downsized and downtrodden, Susan Taylor was in life's doghouse. Decades ago, she had been in the prosperous business of supplying ingredients to Milwaukee's brewers. As that business began to taper off in the 80s and 90s, Taylor was one of many shown the door when her employer was snapped up by a larger company. Suddenly outside an industry for which she had cultivated a particular skill set, Taylor went on a 15-year "journey to find out what to do with my life" — a long and difficult journey that...
