  • This Christian CEO Reveals How a Tragic Loss Only Strengthened His Faith

    In 1992, I learned the meaning of the Hebrew word “shachah.” 10 years earlier, I met my wife on an oil rig. I was a geologist, working on a well, she was an engineer. I had spent 11 years in college, going full time including summers, and never heard the message of the gospel. My parents, sister, and brothers were completely unchurched, and I actually did not know the meaning of Christmas or Easter, and certainly did not know who Jesus Christ was. I can’t say I was an atheist – I simply was a non-theist. So, when I met...
  • Non-smokers get six days extra paid leave to make up for smokers' cigarette breaks at Japanese firm

    A Japanese company is granting non-smoking employees an extra six days of paid holidays a year after they complained that they were working more than staff who took time off for cigarette breaks. Tokyo-based marketing firm Piala Inc. only introduced the non-smokers' perk in September, but employees have been quick to take advantage. "One of our non-smoking staff put a message in the company suggestion box earlier in the year saying that smoking breaks were causing problems", said Hirotaka Matsushima, a spokesman for the company. "Our CEO saw the comment and agreed, so we are giving non-smokers some extra time...
  • There Are Shades of Joel Osteen in the Book of Job

    When reading the Book of Job, I’m often struck by the similarities between Job’s friends and Joel Osteen. Granted, Job’s friends probably presented themselves in a much dourer manner than Osteen does. If not in their assumed scowls, it's the content of their unhelpful advice to Job that bears a similarity to the teachings of the smiling author of Your Best Life Now. More accurately, the words of Job’s friends are the opposite side of the same false coin held out by the message of self-idolatrous false-hope preached by Joel Osteen. Many are familiar with the Biblical story of the...

    The Salt Lake City police detective who arrested nurse Alex Wubbels for not allowing police to draw blood from an unconscious patient has been fired from his part-time paramedic job with Gold Cross Ambulance Service. Payne was placed on paid administrative leave from his full-time job as an officer with the Salt Lake City Police Department after a video of the arrest went viral. In a separate video recorded after the arrest, Payne asked another officer how the incident would affect his part-time position with the ambulance company. Payne bragged that he could retaliate against the hospital by only bringing...

    A Picture of the Spiritual Life from Job Msgr. Charles Pope • September 29, 2016 • Consider a verse from the Book of Job that was read in the Liturgy earlier this week (Wednesday of the 26th Week of the Year):God is wise in heart and mighty in strength; who has withstood him and remained unscathed? (Job 9:3)At first glance, we might read this to mean that we don’t dare talk back to God or resist Him lest He punish us, but this would be a superficial interpretation. The text surely speaks more richly, of the spiritual life and...

    Job and Suffering Msgr. Charles Pope • September 26, 2016 • Job’s Tormentors’ by William BlakeWe are beginning to read from the Book of Job in daily Mass. One of its core issues is the problem of suffering and why God allows it. If God is omnipotent and omniscient then how can He tolerate evil, injustice, and suffering of the innocent? Where is God when a woman is raped, when genocide is committed, or when evil men hatch their plots? Why did God even conceive the evil ones and let them be born?The problem of evil cannot be answered...

    According to Oxford Economics, 65,000 US rail jobs are under threat due to import form China of the freight rail cars into the country. If the United States allows some of China’s largest producers of freight rail cars into the country, they could end up eliminating up to 65,000 U.S. jobs. Thanks to the subsidies provided to Chinese state enterprises. “China’s economy produced $21.27 trillion in 2016 (based on purchasing power parity). It’s the world’s largest economy. The European Union is second, at $19.1 trillion. The United States fell to third place, producing $18.5 trillion. China has 1.37 billion people,...

    Media giant Time Inc. has announced it will lay off as many as 300 workers in an attempt to cut costs and restructure the company — a move that CEO Richard Battista has described as “difficult but necessary.” The decision comes amidst falling levels of circulation of some of the company’s key magazines such as Time, Fortune and Sports Illustrated. As part of the savings, the company will now focus on investing in growing digital markets such as video and paid subscriptions. “We are taking a holistic approach to cost-structure re-engineering for the whole company,” Battista told CNN. “In commencing...

    The Trump Administration created a tool for Americans to report H-1B visa fraud in their workplace. United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) announced a tip-line for Americans who are the victims of foreign worker outsourcing through the H-1B visa in a news release. “Information submitted to the email address will be used for investigations and referrals to law enforcement agencies for potential prosecution,” the release stated. Every year, more than 85,000 Americans potentially lose their jobs to foreign labor through the H-1B visa program. In addition, the Trump Administration is implementing stricter oversight over the current employers who hire...

    The EB-5 program will get you permanent residency in the US through capital investment With the new US President's anti-globalisation and anti-immigrants stance, those wishing to toil their way in to a US citizenship might find it hard in the near future. But money might buy you a rightful place under the US sun. This can be achieved with the help of the EB-5 program, that can get you permanent residency and eventually citizenship, provided you have a deep pocket. Many countries, including the UK, Australia and exotic locales such as Malta and Cyprus provide a channel to high networth...

    The Keystone Pipeline project was expected to create tens of thousands of high paying jobs in the oil industry. The project itself would create 20,000 construction jobs. And the pipeline would bring oil from Canada and North Dakota to refineries in the United States. (Bob McCarty) Obama rejected the plan in 2011 and again in 2015. This week the Trump State Department signed and issued permits for the completion of the Keystone XL Pipeline.

    SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - The University of California, San Francisco on Tuesday laid off 49 information technology (IT) employees and outsourced their work to a company based in India, ending a year-long process that has brought the public university under fire. The university announced the plan last July as a way to save $30 million over five years. The University of California system, which includes health care and research-focused UCSF, has been struggling to raise revenue and cut expenses. Globalization and outsourcing have become hot-button political issues in the United States, as more employers cut costs by farming out work...
  • The Majority of Millennials Have $1,000 or Less in Savings

    Millennials are projected to number 75.3 million for 2015, surpassing a projected 74.9 million for Baby Boomers. The Millennials will therefore comprise a greater percentage of the population than Baby Boomers for the first time. To gain insight into the saving habits of Millennials, we recently performed a survey of those from the ages of 18 to 34. We received 2,585 responses to our survey. The results of our survey found that over 50% of Millennials have less than $1,000 in savings. This would indicate that most millennials do not have a cushion to fall back on in case of...

    LOOKING INWARD ON H1-B Indian IT firms must ramp up salary structures The odd thing about the H1-B reform Bill introduced in the US House of Representatives is the person who introduced it. Zoe Lofgren is the Democratic Party Congresswoman representing California's 19th Congressional District, an area that covers most of the city of San Jose. As any visitor to the city can testify, it is not a white-majority constituency. Indeed, a majority of the population in the area is of Hispanic origin, but almost a quarter of the population is Asian. For the most part, those are Indians particularly...
