How employers can address increased gender inequality due to Working From Home

.su-pullquote {font-size:22px; color: #800000;font-weight:bold;} The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the nature of work as we know it.

6 things science is revealing about your skin and hygiene

For his new book, "Clean: The New Science of Skin," physician James Hamblin didn't shower for five years. Soap is a relatively simple concoction; you're mostly paying for marketing and scent.

Weekend reading: Here’s one we made earlier

What caught my eye this week. R ummaging around to select an old post from the Monevator ‘archive-ator’ each week can be bittersweet. On the one hand, it seems I used to be smarter, wittier, and more productive. But a compensation for these memento mori moments is coming across those little nuggets that have aged rather better than me. Take these comments on tech stocks from December 2010, in a post about what I called the investor sentiment cycle: For a contrasting unloved sector, consider te...

The New York Times Digs into the Adoptions of Amy Coney Barrett’s Children

When word leaked in 2005 that the New York Times was digging into the details of the adoptions of then-Supreme Court nominee John Roberts’s two children, the non-partisan National Council for Adoption issued a scathing denunciation of the Times’ “abject invasion of privacy [that] shows a shameful disregard for the integrity of the family in general and the adoptive family in particular.”The Times never published a story on Roberts’s kids and announced that “any gratuitous reporting about the Rob...

"People have described the Cuomo-de Blasio shenanigans as a beef between two Italian-American men."

"But their backgrounds are vastly different. De Blasio, who is from Cambridge, Massachusetts, adopted his mother’s surname. His father was a Wasp and a Yale graduate who lost a leg at Okinawa. He later abandoned the family and, stricken with lung cancer, killed himself. De Blasio molded himself into a hardworking Brooklyn man of the people. 'It’s sort of a false identity, like the shit-kicking version of George W. Bush, whereas Andrew is who he is,' the former city official said...." From "And...

President Trump's recent executive order prohibits federal workforce, uniformed services, government contractors, and federal grants from being used to promote "race or sex stereotyping or scapegoating." The order criticizes diversity training that includes messages that racism "is interwoven...
