How tech giants have been getting away with Age Discrimination

Corporate diversity initiatives have focused primarily on skin color, ethnicity, and gender thus far, but age should also be imperative.  Aside from it being an overlooked and unmonitored protected category, workforce demographics project a talent shortage for all diversity groups under 40. In the coming months, IBM could face hundreds of lawsuits (and/or a class action suit) over age discrimination. The EEOC has concluded (and made “final”) that the company took steps to significantly reduce p...

Thanksgiving travel in Southern California to see biggest drop in 12 years

The skyrocketing spread of the coronavirus, combined with urgent pleas from health agencies to stay home, are curbing Thanksgiving holiday travel plans for many Southern Californians, experts say. Forecasts for travel in the region between Tuesday and Sunday, Nov. 24-29, call for a 14% decrease from last year, the biggest drop since the 2008 Great Recession, according to the Automobile Club of Southern California. “We expect that decrease might be even greater and we very well could see fewer tr...

California will cease to be the epicenter of the tech industry and innovation

In August, Uber and Lyft came close to shutting down their operations in California. Hours before the looming ride-sharing blackout, a state appeals court granted a last-minute reprieve, accommodating the two companies’ request not to reclassify their drivers—which they consider independent contractors and essential to their business models—as full-time employees as required by California Assembly Bill 5 (AB5). In October, the appeals court reached a final decision and declared Uber and Lyft mus...

2021 Toyota Sienna Overview: Trim Levels, Tech & Safety Features, Pricing & More

The word “swagger” isn’t one that leaps to mind when you hear the term minivan, but Toyota hopes its just-announced 2021 Sienna changes that. Perhaps Toyota coined the term “swagger wagon” to wipe away reminders that minivan sales are in the dumpster, and many reviewers contend Sienna rates way behind the Honda Odyssey, Chrysler Pacifica, and Kia Sedona. Sure, Toyota has top sales with many models, including Camry, RAV4,  and Prius. Still, the Sienna minivan is consistently bested by the Hond...

Jeep Gladiator Top Dog Concept: The Jeep For Brave Mountain Bikers!

There are plenty of reasons to love Jeep, but the Jeep Gladiator Top Dog Concept is the first one that ever made me seriously consider mountain biking. Jeep used a 2020 Gladiator as the Top Dog’s foundation, then added racks, storage systems, and some brute power to take you on muddy, boulder-strewn adventures. You probably remember that Mopar released the Jeep Gladiator Farout Concept in April. Yes, this new Jeep concept is similar, but the extras make it truly ready for mountain bikers. The...

Employees at global software firm Zoho have turned the company's Austin headquarters into a fully functioning farm. It's become a respite during the pandemic, and could serve as a model for a new way of working.

A portion of the farm at Zoho's headquarters. Zoho When international software company Zoho bought 360 acres of land outside of Austin, Texas, the plan was to build a new headquarters for its 150 local employees.  But when a group of Zoho employees drove out to check out the land in February, they decided to do something totally different: start a farm.  Since then, Zoho's workers have hauled in crops of melons, peppers, arugula, and more. There are fruit trees growing nearby, and the ...

Chevy K5 Blazer-E Rolls Into SEMA360 as a Modern EV With Vintage Flair

Chevrolet’s latest concept build is a “blast from the past” and takes us back to the 1970s when the K5 Blazer roamed the streets.
