Google to release pay data in gender discrimination probe

July 17 (UPI) -- Google must partially comply with a Labor Department's request for 19 years' worth of employee pay data as part of a gender discrimination investigation, a San Francisco-area judge ruled.

Earlier this year, the Labor Department sued Google for information concerning how much it paid more than 25,000 employees over the course of 19 years. Federal investigators said they found "systemic compensation disparities against women pretty much across the entire workforce."

Administrative Law Judge Steven Berlin, though, said the request for data was too broad and raised privacy concerns. Instead, he ruled, Google must give the Labor Department pay data for up to 8,000 employees from 2014-17.

July 17 (UPI) -- Olympic gold medalist and reality TV star Caitlyn Jenner said over the weekend she is considering running for the U.S. Senate, to represent California.

Jenner, a transgender activist formerly known as Bruce Jenner, said she planned to make a decision within six months.

"I have considered it. I like the political side of it," Jenner said in an interview Sunday with radio host John Catsimatidis on New York's AM 970 that aired Sunday. "I gotta find out where I can do a better job. Can I do a better job from the outside, kind of working the perimeter of the political scene, being open to talk to anybody? Or are you better off from the inside, and we are in the process of determining that."

Minneapolis Police fatally Shoot unarmed Aussie

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/07/16/us/australian-woman-minneapolis-police-fatal-shooting-body-cameras.html

Happened 5 minutes from my parents house. It's a really nice neighborhood, pretty shocking.

>An Australian woman who was about to get married was fatally shot overnight Saturday by a Minneapolis police officer who did not have his body camera turned on, officials said.

>The woman, Justine Damond, was shot as the officers were responding to her 911 call of an assault near her home in the Fulton neighborhood. Ms. Damond, 40, who is from Sydney and who also went by the name Justine Ruszczyk, was engaged to be married next month to an American man, according to Australian news reports.

>Police officials said they were looking into the circumstances of the shooting and why the officers were not using their body cameras, as required in such encounters.

>“Two Minneapolis police officers responded to a 911 call of a possible assault just north of the 5100 block of Washburn Avenue South just before 11:30 p.m. Saturday,” a statement by the State Bureau of Criminal Apprehension said. “At one point an officer fired their weapon, fatally striking a woman.”

>“The officers’ body cameras were not turned on at the time and the squad camera did not capture the incident,” the statement added.

>Betsy Hodges, the mayor of Minneapolis, said, “I have questions about why the bodycams weren’t on.”

>“As mayor of our city, a wife, and a grandmother, I am heartsick and deeply disturbed by what occurred last night,” she posted on Facebook

>The officer involved in the shooting, Mohammed Noor, extended his condolences to the family in a statement through his attorney. Noor came to the United States at a young age and is thankful to have had so many opportunities, attorney Thomas Plunkett said.

First object teleported to Earth's orbit

No.156162 ViewReplyLast 50OriginalReportDownload thread
Chinese researchers have teleported a photon from the Gobi desert to a satellite orbiting five hundred kilometres above the earth.

This is achieved through quantum entanglement, a process where two particles react as one with no physical connection between them.

Hooke Professor of Experimental Physics at Oxford University Ian Walmsley tells the World At One how quantum entanglement works and how teleportation could be utilised.

Democrats and Republicans finally find common ground on slandering Bernie Sanders

No.158373 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
A Republican lawyer who reported Democratic U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders and his wife to federal officials was passing on information he heard from a GOP lawmaker who said he didn't have direct knowledge of the allegations.

>The lawyer, Brady Toensing, sent letters to the U.S. attorney for Vermont and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. alleging that Sen. Sanders pressured a bank to approve a loan to a now-closed college run by Sanders' wife.

>The source of that information was Republican State Rep. Don Turner, the minority leader of the Vermont House.

>Turner told WCAX-TV that friends at the bank described pressure from Sanders' office, but he says those friends didn't have direct knowledge of the negotiations. Turner says he told Toensing about it in May 2016, adding that he would not have brought it to the attention of federal investigators.

>Toensing, an attorney who served as Donald Trump's Vermont representative during last year's presidential campaign, said Monday he was standing by the allegation.

>"This was not a country store, cracker-barrel rant," Toensing said. He noted that hearsay is used by investigators to develop direct evidence.

>Turner did not immediately return a message left by The Associated Press on Monday.

>The Vermont weekly newspaper Seven Days first reported late Friday that Turner was the source of Toensing's information.

>In early 2016, Toensing sent a more extensive letter to federal authorities alleging that in 2010, when Jane O'Meara Sanders was president of Burlington College, she made fraudulent claims while seeking $10 million in financing for a real estate deal.

>The college, which closed last year, later sold the property. Officials cited debt from the land deal as a major reason.

Trump officials open border to 15,000 more foreign workers

No.158249 ViewReplyOriginalReportDownload thread
https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/wonk/wp/2017/07/17/trump-officials-order-15000-new-visas-for-low-wage-workers/

>The Department of Homeland Security on Monday announced a one-time increase of 15,000 additional visas for low-wage seasonal workers for the remainder of this fiscal year, a seeming about-face from President Trump's "Hire American" rhetoric, following heavy lobbying from fisheries, hospitality and other industries that rely on temporary foreign workers.

>The increase represents a 45 percent bump from the number of H-2B visas normally issued for the second half of the fiscal year, said senior Homeland Security officials in a call with reporters.

>The visas are for workers taking temporary jobs in the seafood, tourism, landscaping, construction and other seasonal industries — but not farm laborers.

>Businesses can begin applying for the visas this week, but must first attest that their firms would suffer permanent "irreparable harm" without importing foreign workers. They will be required to retain documents proving that they would not otherwise be able to meet their contractual obligations, or provide other evidence of severe financial loss, the officials said.

>Asked how allowing more foreign workers aligns with Trump's America First policies — especially as the White House kicks off what it has promoted as "Made in America" week — one of the Homeland Security officials said the increase "absolutely does" fit in with Trump's campaign promises.

>"We're talking about American businesses that are at risk of suffering irreparable harm if they don't get additional H-2B workers," he said. "This does help with American businesses continuing to prosper."
