Rachel Gillett, provided by Published 1:55 pm CDT, Monday, April 8, 2019 Ariel Skelley/Getty Images Job interviews are a two-way street: candidates should assess the company based on responses to questions they bring up. Asking good questions is also a way to indirectly show off how well you know the company. Here's how to shine when your interviewer asks, "Do you have any questions for me?" Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. It's important to remember that every interview is a two-way street. You should be assessing the employer just as much as they're assessing you, because you both need to walk away convinced that the job would be a great fit. So when the tables are turned and the interviewer asks, "Do you have any questions for me?" take advantage of this opportunity. It's the best way to determine if you'd be happy working for this employer and whether your goals are aligned.

In 2008, Vaccinate Your Family, the nation's largest nonprofit dedicated to advocating for vaccinations, had to stop posting videos to YouTube. Then known as Every Child By Two, the organization had used its channel on the massive video platform to post interviews with doctors, public service announcements, and testimonials from parents of children who had died of vaccine-preventable diseases. But those messages were quickly sabotaged. YouTube's recommendation system, which appears alongside videos and suggests what users should watch next, would direct viewers to anti-vaccination videos, according to Amy Pisani, executive director of Vaccinate Your Family. "When we would put things on YouTube, it was followed by an anti-vaccination video," Pisani, told NBC News. YouTube's recommendation system, powered by an algorithm that the company does not make public, has been criticized in recent years for favoring controversial and conspiratorial content. The companyhas said that itchanged the … [Read more...] about Drowned out by the algorithm: Pro-vaccination advocates struggle to be heard online

David Ramirez was listening to music on headphones while walking in the middle of a residential street on the near Southwest Side. A police car, in the neighborhood for an unrelated call for service, pulled up behind him and honked once. Within minutes, Ramirez, then 18, and two officers are wrangling on the ground as Ramirez pleads with them to stop and they try to pin his arms back and subdue him. Police body-camera video of the altercation, which the Express-News obtained recently through an open records request, shows how a stop for a seemingly minor infraction can escalate quickly into a physical clash. The struggle lasted about five minutes and ended when the two officers lifted Ramirez, by then handcuffed, from the ground and one forcefully pushed him onto the hood of the patrol car. Chief William McManus later concluded one officer used excessive force — a determination that happens rarely in the department. But to others who watched the video, including two professors … [Read more...] about San Antonio police wrestled a teenager to the ground. An officer was suspended. Was that the right call?
Theresa May is quizzed by callers on BBC 5 live about her Brexit deal. The prime minister, who campaigned for Britain to remain in the EU 2016, is asked if she thinks her Brexit deal will leave the country better off. She will only tell the caller that it will be a “different environment.” It comes after her former Brexit secretary tells the BBC that the prime minister’s deal is worse than remaining in the EU. LONDON – Theresa May has repeatedly refused to say whether she believes her Brexit deal will leave British people better off than if the UK had opted to stay in the EU. Asked on Friday by a caller on BBC 5 Live whether she could “honestly say” that her deal would leave Britain better off than EU membership, the prime minister, who campaigned for Remain in 2016, would only say that it would be “different.” “It’s different,” May replied. “You say are better off, are we better off? Actually, it’s a … [Read more...] about Theresa May refuses to say if her Brexit deal is better than remaining in the EU
