As two high-profile lawsuits that were both dropped earlier this year make clear, women still have trouble winning gender discrimination cases in the courtroom. A new California law could soon change things, but a few questions are still worth asking: If women struggle to address discrimination at the legal level, what other destructive workplace behaviors still hold back their careers? And what can professional women do if the perpetrators are other women? advertisement advertisement Here are three strategies for professional women to survive an unwelcoming work culture. 1. Know You Aren’t Alone For one thing, same-gender bullying is a real problem in many organizations. In 2014, the Workplace Bullying Institute found that 77% of bullied targets were bullied by those of their own gender.

Apple is looking for software engineers who can help build media apps for Windows. The Cupertino-based tech giant has listed a new job opening and is inviting potential candidates to develop the ‘next generation of media apps for Windows’.Apple currently has few apps like iTunes and iCloud, that run on Windows. This seems fairly old and dated, especially after Apple breaking iTunes up into three separate apps in macOS — Music, TV, Podcasts. None of the three apps has been made available for Windows as yet. Sure Windows users can still use Apple TV Plus or Apple Music, but they need to use the web version instead of a dedicated app on Windows 10.Apple’s job listing reveals that the iPhone maker has plans for introducing Windows apps that are similar to what it offers on Mac.

Peter Landesman is used to tackling tough subjects. The former New York Times Magazine journalist has written about everything from Russian arms traffickers to genocide in Rwanda. So perhaps it’s not surprising that he sounds non-plussed when he talks about doling out some harsh blows to the NFL in his new film, Concussion. Based on a true story, the film stars Will Smith as Dr. Bennet Omalu, a forensic pathologist who first diagnoses C.T.E., a degenerative brain disease linked to repeated head blows, in 2005. Omalu discovered several cases of C.T.E.-amongst former NFL players whom he performed autopsies on, a number of whom had ended their lives in suicide. He, and the film, attack the NFL for initially denying any connection between C.T.E. and football players, and trying to discredit Omalu’s findings. advertisement advertisement “[NFL commissioner] Roger Goodell doesn’t really worry me that much,” say Landesman, who wrote and directed the … [Read more...] about How Writer/Director Peter Landesman Took on the NFL With ‘Concussion’
“Over here we have some mint, romaine lettuce, there’s basil in the back there, chives are coming, flat-leaf parsley…” advertisement advertisement Jimmy Ng, program director of The Growing Experience, an urban farm in Long Beach, California, is showing me the results of an “aquaponics” system that is helping his crops survive the brutal drought that has persisted here for four years. Not only has there been a lack of precipitation in California, but the weather has been wildly unpredictable. On the day I meet Ng in early October, it’s blisteringly hot–the thermometer’s pushing well past 90–making a stack of newly picked pumpkins look strangely out of place. The heat also makes it difficult to stand for too long inside the greenhouse where Ng is explaining how a 600-gallon tub filled with tilapia and goldfish, and 175 white, metal towers have miraculously produced the plethora of green produce. Ng points to a white, … [Read more...] about This Californian Urban Farm Is A Glimpse Into The Future Of Agriculture
