    Like an island bathed in sunshine but surrounded by stormy seas, General Electric Aviation’s River Works plant is hiring at record levels and shouldering big aviation contracts even as GE works its way out of a corporate slide.

The ceremony capped off GE Aviation’s success in landing a $143 million initial production contract in 2017 to build 22 engines to power a new Marine Corps heavy-lift helicopter. State Rep.

    Five months before the Kavanaugh nomination hearings, the following (concerning the #MeToo movement) was posted anonymously on LinkedIn. It was posted on June 10th, and within 72 hours it was taken down. Now, not even the Wayback Machine has a record of it. Welcome to modern Internet censorship. The article reads as truth. Fundamentally, the #MeToo movement might just be undoing all of the damage that Affirmative Action and HR Harassment Firings have done to men’s ability to work over the last forty years. Perhaps the pendulum of political correctness is starting to swing in the other direction. Perhaps, one...

But as we fast approach 2019, has Emirates finally hired enough cabin crew? We ask that question because as many eager candidates will no doubt already have already noticed, the number of Open Day’s currently advertised on the official Emirates...
