    Chief Executive Officers in the United States can expect to earn a very comfortable salary, with average salaries (in the ballpark of $163K). This is based on 1,006 CEOs in the U.S. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, there were 2,572,000 top executive jobs and the average pay in 2016 was $104,700. CEOs made an average of $183,270 as of May 2017. That is a far cry from any numbers that the media actually reports. Meanwhile, the average federal employee compensation in the U.S is $123,160, so they make more than the average top executives, and their benefits and...
  • The NFL has a MAJOR Hypocrisy Problem When it Comes to Allowing the American Flag to be Disrespected

    The Politistick ^ | 09/24/2017 | Matthew K. Burke
    Why is it okay to disrespect the American flag, okay to wear a t-shirt praising communist butcher Fidel Castro, okay to depict cops as pigs, but not okay to wear a Christian t-shirt? Everyone is weighing in in the disrespectful NFL flag-sitters, so I might as well. Here are several points that make the case that NFL owners and the commissioner are utter hypocrites for allowing players to disrespect the American flag: 1) The NFL is a private company — it is not the federal government. Every private company has codes of conduct. 2) The NFL forced RGIII (Robert Griffin...
  • Pressure points? Here are the companies whose CEOs are still kissing up to Trump

    LA Times ^ | Aug. 15, 2017 | Michael Hiltzik
    On Monday morning, Merck & Co. Chief Executive Ken Frazier resigned from President Trump’s manufacturing jobs council to protest Trump’s deficient condemnation of the racist violence in Charlottesville, Va. Since then, membership on Trump’s Potemkin Village-like CEO boards has begun to look like something of a litmus test for American corporations and business organizations. Two CEOs followed Frazier out the door on Monday: Under Armour’s Kevin Plank and Intel’s Brian Krzanich. But representatives of some 40 other corporations and other organizations, including a couple of retired CEOs, are still members of the jobs council and a second panel designated the...

    A group of chief executive officers are praising House Republicans' proposed border-adjustment tax as the debate escalates. Border adjustability, which would subject imports to U.S. tax and exempt exports "is consistent with the tax policies of nearly every other country in the world, and it would effectively end the 'Made in America' tax that creates an unfair advantage for foreign-based companies at the expense of U.S. jobs and economic growth," the CEOs wrote in a letter to congressional leaders Tuesday. Sixteen business leaders signed the letter, including the CEOs of Boeing, GE, McIlhenny Company, Pfizer and S&P Global. The chief...

  • Project Safe Childhood (U.S. Department of Justice stopping child exploitation)

    Project Safe Childhood is the Department of Justice initiative launched in 2006 to combat the proliferation of technology-facilitated crimes involving the sexual exploitation of children. The threat of sexual predators soliciting children for physical sexual contact is well-known and serious. The danger of perpetrators who produce, distribute and possess child pornography is equally dramatic and disturbing. There is often an international dimension to these crimes – for example, some offenders travel to victimize children outside of the United States or view live video streams (in addition to recorded still and video images) of children being abused in foreign countries. The...

    Americans from all corners of the economy seem to be enjoying the conditions a lot more since the election of Donald Trump. Nearly every measure of consumer, business, or executive confidence has gained in the month since the election according to Michelle Meyer, chief US economist at Bank of America Merrill Lynch. "The data clearly show that consumers, investors, and business CEOs have all become more optimistic since the election," wrote Meyer in a note to clients on Thursday. Everything from regional manufacturing indexes to consumer confidence surveys to investor sentiment have ticked up since November 8. The only survey...

    The AP review of Clinton's calendar — her after-the-fact, official chronology of the events of her four-year term — identified at least 75 meetings with longtime political donors and loyalists, Clinton Foundation contributors and corporate and other outside interests that were either not recorded or listed with identifying details scrubbed. The AP found the omissions by comparing the 1,500-page document with separate planning schedules supplied to Clinton by aides in advance of each day's events. The names of at least 114 outsiders who met with Clinton were missing from her calendar, the records show...

    Sen. Jeff Sessions (R-Ala.) today accused executives at some of the world´s largest corporation of "scheming with the White House" to circumvent the law during their closed-door meeting with Pres. Obama today. "We have now arrived at a crisis point in American politics. Politico reports that the White House is meeting with the world´s largest corporations to discuss how executive actions on immigration could benefit them financially. The Administration has solicited ´a list of asks for the tech sector´ and ´provisions for low-skilled workers for industries, like construction´-including green cards and work authorizations-in order to ´get them on board´ with...

    In a recent paper, Lubinski and his colleagues caught up with one cohort of 320 people now in their late 30s. At 12, their SAT math or verbal scores had placed them among the top one-100th of 1 percent. Today, many are CEOs, professors at top research universities, transplant surgeons, and successful novelists. That outcome sounds like exactly what you’d imagine should happen: Top young people grow into high-achieving adults. In the education world, the study has provided important new evidence that it really is possible to identify the kids who are likely to become exceptional achievers in the future,...

    Indian engineering education is draped in a cloth that needs a proper wash! While scanning the list of alumni of IIT recently, I came across a few names that have peppered the leaves of successful men’s list but their contributions are far away in foreign lands. While combing through the facts I found that most of these elite men do not reside in their own land, and a major chunk is holding high profiles in the Unites States of America.

    WASHINGTON -- Sen. Bob Corker, a Republican who serves on the Senate Banking Committee, has called for a hearing on the $2-billion trading loss by JPMorgan Chase & Co., saying that "policies are going to be derived out of what’s happened." Corker, who was a key participant in the debate over the 2010 financial reform law, said it was important for policymakers to get the facts about the situation and whether pending regulations would have prevented it.

    In recent months we've become well aware of how U.S. House Republicans are trying to decimate services of vital importance to women. Don't take your eyes off your local statehouse, though: There, legislators have pushed the war on women equally far, cracking down on reproductive rights and cutting funding for education and health programs that largely benefit women and children.
