August 26, 4: The victims—cameraman Adam Ward, 27, and reporter Alison Parker, 24—were in the middle of an interview when they were both shot dead by year-old Vester Lee Flanagan II, a fellow journalist who went by Bryce Williams on air, authorities said. A third victim, who was being interviewed at the time of the shooting, survived and is in stable condition. Flanagan refused to stop, and his vehicle ran off the road and crashed. Troopers found Flanagan with a self-inflicted gunshot wound, and he later died at a hospital. The video of the broadcast begins like any local news report, but turns grisly as Parker, the on-camera reporter, screams and a gun can be heard firing multiple times. The video ends with the camera on the ground before cutting to a clearly distressed anchor. Another video that circulated on social media a few hours after the shooting appeared to show the attack as filmed from the point of view of the shooter. The graphic video, which was posted to Twitter and Facebook under the name Bryce Williams, shows the shooter pointing a gun at the victims, briefly turning away with the camera, and then opening fire. The Twitter and Facebook accounts were quickly suspended late Wednesday morning.
Grindr Sued, Employee Says H.R. Supervisor Drugged, Raped Him at Christmas Party
Can you sue your employer if another employee calls you the n-word? This is distressing, for sure. If the abuse continues and your employer does nothing, then you need to see how the company’s policies and procedures can guide you. In the meantime, if your workplace is a big enough com…pany, you can check to see if your workplace has a grievance officer policies in place that deal with this kind of harrassment accreditation These items are public record in most agencies, and available to any employee at any company, and should be available at any time.
Of course, following the incident reporting procedure is necessary. Under Federal Law the reporting process should be posted, or a copy provided to each employee.
A former Yahoo employee is suing the company for wrongful termination. The suit alleges that Yahoo manipulated employee evaluations and gave women unfair advantages in order to justify mass.
Men’s Former Employee There was this young lady who was twenty years my junior and used to be an employee of mine. We still work for the same company, but in different departments now. She used to flirt with me all the time, but I thought it was just kissing up to the boss, so to speak. At a recent meeting, I heard a late night knock on my hotel room door. I looked through the peephole and was surprised to see Emily, my former employee, standing in the hall.
I opened the door, and she came in. Neither one of us said a word, but months and months of sexual tension came to a boil and I grabbed Emily. We started kissing passionately.
Former Employee Sues Yahoo For ‘Anti-Male’ Discrimination
It might sound ridiculous, but when I was offered my dream job at Refinery29, a part of me was sad that I’d have to leave my gig at Costco Wholesale. Working for the big-box store was definitively not in my long-term career plans, or why I’d moved to New York City, but in the months I spent working there, I learned a lot. I even started to love it. When I applied for a part-time job on the Costco website, I didn’t think much of it.
A Chinese internet giant has accused a former employee of misconduct and corruption less than two days before the planned Nasdaq listing of the latter’s company, scheduled for today.
On the same day Facebook announced that it had carried out its biggest purge yet of American accounts peddling disinformation, the company quietly made another revelation: It had removed 66 accounts, pages and apps linked to Russian firms that build facial recognition software for the Russian government. Facebook said Thursday that it had removed any accounts associated with SocialDataHub and its sister firm, Fubutech, because the companies violated its policies by scraping data from the social network.
Facebook has reason to believe your work for the government has included matching photos from individuals? Fubutech does build facial-recognition software for the Russian government and uses Facebook data, but it scrapes Google search results for that information? Khachuyan said he taught Russian journalism students how to scrape the web and that two of them had scraped Facebook for the public profiles of their classmates.
In the wake of reporting by The New York Times and others that the political firm Cambridge Analytica harvested the data of more than 87 million Facebook users through a third-party app, Facebook announced that it was reviewing its data-sharing policy with apps. After an audit, the company said it was suspending apps. Some have since had their access to Facebook restored. At one point in a minute phone interview, he said the Russian Defense Ministry was a client but later said he could not name Fubutech?
His other firm, SocialDataHub, works with insurers and banks to evaluate potential customers. Between 30, and 50, Russian citizens have given SocialDataHub permission to analyze their Facebook profiles to assign a score between zero and 10, which insurers and banks use to help set rates or approve credit cards.

Social trends Since the s, Internet dating has become more popular with smartphones. The stigma associated with online dating dropped over the years and people view online dating more positively. Further, during this period, the usage among to year-olds tripled, while that among to year-olds doubled. Online introduction services In , a variation of the online dating model emerged in the form of introduction sites, where members have to search and contact other members, who introduce them to other members whom they deem compatible.
Introduction sites differ from the traditional online dating model, and attracted a large number of users and significant investor interest. Such sites earn revenue from a mix of advertising and sale of additional options. This model also allows users to switch between free and paying status at will, with sites accepting a variety of online currencies and payment options. Since advertising revenues are modest compared to membership fees, this model requires a large number of page views to achieve profitability.

Getty As the old saying goes “you don’t dip your pen in the company ink. Is this age-old adage becoming extinct? If you believe the stats of new employees entering the workforce, it might seem so. But a lot of companies don’t let the rank and file decide–they adopt policies that ban or limit workplace dating–all in the name of lowering liability. Enforcing these policies can take their toll on a company.
And, because you keep employee matters confidential, the employee will tell any story that makes him look good—even if it makes you look bad. You will likely be unfriended at social sites, so if you wonder how the former employee positions the termination, check quickly.

Bullying and harassment was reported by one in five staff, with the perpetrators being almost the same figure for being at the hands or a colleague or a manager. The scene of the fatal crash on the A39 in September Image: Adrian Jasper A serious cause for concern in the report was an absence of empathy and understanding among managers.
The consequences of bullying included suicidal thoughts and attempts, long-term sickness absence and staff leaving the ambulance service.
