In Booming Job Market, Workers Are 'Ghosting' Their Employers

A notorious millennial dating practice is starting to creep into the workplace: ghosting. Employers are noticing with increasing frequency that workers are leaving their jobs by simply not showing up and cutting off contact with their companies [Editor's note: the link may be paywalled; syndicated source]. From a report: "A number of contacts said that they had been 'ghosted,' a situation in which a worker stops coming to work without notice and then is impossible to contact," the Federal Reserv...

The Weekly Standard’s Closing Should be Mourned

I didn’t want to write about The Weekly Standard’s closing until it was official. I was hoping that an angel would descend from the heavens, but it seems that the magazine’s owner, who was eager for the subscriber list for a magazine version of the Washington Examiner, did not want to sell.  You ask: Why should I – whose disagreements with the Standard’s editorial stances would fill a short book – care?  It has to do with the valuable role that opinion magazines like The Weekly Standard have pla...

How a woman born with malformed hands overcame the odds to become a nurse

The letter arrived like a slap in the face. She was being informed, in so many words, that she needed to choose another major or find another university. Her chosen course of study – nursing – was done for her at Cal State San Bernardino. “I was in tears,” said Kimberly Reichardt, now 25, of the 2015 letter that could have derailed her career. “I was upset and angry. That was my dream, my goal. I felt like nursing was my calling.” No was a word she heard too often as she tried to make it as a nu...

Yellow Vests stand for and against many contradictory things, but are united in opposition to oligarchy

From a distance, it's hard to understand the nuance of the mass "gilets jaunes" protests that rocked France; with one in five French people identifying as a yellow vest and more vests marching in Basra, Baghdad and Alberta (and with Egypt's autocrats pre-emptive cracking down on the sale of yellow vests ahead of elections), it's clearly a complicated and fast-spreading phenomenon. The complexity stems in part from the leaderless nature of the group; participants claim they have no formal me...

Mary Pickford: Hollywood's Most Powerful Waif

None As has been stated often and as we can't be reminded often enough, Mary Pickford was the most powerful woman in Hollywood during the silent era. Since establishing herself as a star in the 1910s -- really a superstar by today's standards -- she'd taken control of her career and produced her own vehicles. This became officially known when she co-founded United Artists, the era's most important independent production company. Now restored and tinted on 4K Blu-ray/DVD combos are two of her cl...

Miss U.S.A. got a little catty about the way Miss Vietnam and Miss Cambodia don't speak English... and got trashed for "xenophobia" and had to apologize.

Here's the whole article at WaPo, "‘What normalized xenophobia looks like’: Miss USA apologizes for comments about other contestants' English."The 24-year-old had just finished talking about how Miss Vietnam H’Hen Nie “pretends to know so much English,” capping her remarks with an imitation of her fellow Miss Universe contestant. Later, Summers touched on how “confusing” things must be for Miss Cambodia, Rern Sinat, because she doesn’t speak English and “not a single other person speaks her lang...

The 20 Best Americana Albums of 2018

None Americana is a peculiar label, isn't it? Whenever we attempt to identify the most authentically American musical form, the one that most accurately captures the history and culture of the United States, we end up debating all night, just as we do every year here in the PopMatters offices and recreation areas when it's time to write our year-end Americana list. What we can all agree on is that Americana music ought to be music that incorporates some traditional elements of any number of Ame...

How Has Our Culture Redefined Marriage?

Last month Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade kiss between two women was a “first” for the parade. The kiss was watched by millions of people. As one might expect, it drew the ire of too many social conservatives to count. Oh, wait. No, it didn’t. As I pointed out at The Stream, almost no social conservatives said anything about it. And life went on in America because, frankly, we’ve been redefining marriage for a long time. An American tradition I recently read – and cited at Catholic Exchange – ...
