SORT BY Relevancy
Every day, unconscious biases influence hiring decisions. This issue undercuts the culture and success of many companies, from start-ups to Fortune 500s.
According to our guest, author and coach Gail Tolstoi-Miller (@gailtolstoimill), companies must build awareness of the bias that takes place in the hiring process and take action. She will share why organizations should implement formal training for people in decision-making functions, and how to combat and diminish bias throughout the hiring process.
After sweeping victories in three contests over the weekend, Bernie Sanders' campaign has a message for Hillary Clinton: "Reports of our death are greatly exaggerated."
Sanders campaign manager Jeff Weaver made that statement on a conference call with reporters on Monday, during which top aides argued that Sanders can still overcome Clinton's delegate lead in the Democratic primary contest. That can happen, they said, both by winning more pledged delegates and by gaining the support of more superdelegates, the 712 party leaders who are free to support the candidate of their choosing at the party's nominating convention. "We are certainly in this to win it," said Weaver, "and there is a path to do so." The crux of the campaign's argument for why it can overtake Clinton in the remaining contests is that the Sanders campaign does very well in states where it chooses to compete. The campaign was willing to write off big losses in many southern states as part of its strategy of focusing on winning a majority in as many states as possible, rather than capturing as many delegates as possible in states it wouldn't win.
The Anti-Trump alliances are amassing to do what they can to prevent 1237. There could be a "Big Price" to pay. Is the GOP prepared for an Armagedon? Supposedly Cruz and Kasich are leading the way. Oh what fun we're having on the way to Cleveland.
Israel is being told "No" re: the Golan. Funny, all it took is for the Jews to discover natural gas in the Golan. Let's ignore the fact that the Syrians lost the land as a result of attacking Israel in the 1967 six day war. And of course you know Russia can't help themselves either and they have to get involved. And can you believe POTUS is backing the international community, Syria, and all the other anti-semites in saying Israel has no right to the land. I guess attcking your neighbor shouldn't have consequences?

This Sunday Down South and Dirty takes a look at the Democratic Party. Even with strong chances of taking the White House, Democrats are struggling with Governor Mansions and State Legislatures. So called Victory Funds that should be helping down ballot candidates are being use as methods to work around fundraising restrictions for Hillary Clinton. State party apparatuses I. States likes Georgia are attempting to get buy in from the base by talking up a so called purple one eyed State fantasy that no one outside of Georgia recognizes. We believe we are at a tipping point and the question is can the Democratic party be saved. This and Anoa Changa's Bern Treatment along with updated from the front lines of Democratic battles from around Georgia and the South. This is the Revolution this is Down South and Dirty.

Call in and join the discussion as we finish our post mortem analysis of the democratic debate.
Bob Port, former Senior Editor for Investigations at the Albany Times Union and Morgan Pehme of Effective NY talks about the Democratic victory for control of the NYS Senate
Last week, we discussed how people in Japan and Europe, and potentially in the U.S., were hoarding more cash at home.
Let's add to the scenario this week with theory that negative intererst rates may pose the risk of killing capitalism as people withdraw cash from the system and choose to stuff if under a mattress or in a cookie jar instead.
Meanwhile, the US government collects record taxes in the first half of 2016, under economic conditions with little sign of economic growth. And despite record cash flowing in, government continues to run deficits.
We continue to watch a presidential race like no other unfold in the Republican Party.
At least one GOP convention delegate has suggested she'll vote for Hillary Clinton in November rather than back Donald Trump. This is the same Republican Party that demanded a loyality pledge from Trump.
And it may seem trivial, but Fox News host Megyn Kelly had a private meeting with Trump on Wednesday. Is Kelly trying to mend fences, do damage control, and distance herself and her network from any GOPe treachery that lies ahead? Also of note, CNN's Anderson Cooper crushed Fox and Kelly in the ratings Tuesday night when Cooper's guests were Trump and his family.
Meanwhile, Ted Cruz is being compared to Moses... And has proposed a flat tax to replace the federal income tax.
Is there really any political will in DC to eliminate the IRS? Or is Cruz doing what other Republicans have done in the past, using the idea of "flat tax" or "fair tax" to distract from other issues, while generating some buzz for his fundraising pitch?
Cling to your normalcy bias at your own risk. Join us Friday at noon as we continue to connect the dots in perilous times.
Cable news was expecting yesterday's New York primary results to be a nail-biter on the Democratic side. Instead, the election was called rather early, for the state's former two-time Senator Hillary Clinton. Bernie Sanders supporters point out that New York's closed primary and tough rules for changing parties made it difficult for many of his supporters to come out and vote, and in addition, there were irregularities at the polls such as a 100,000 record purge in Brooklyn. Clinton reached out to Sanders supporters in her victory speech by proclaiming that there is more to unite us than divide us. But that election is over and both campaigns are looking for votes in next week's primaries, with the biggest delegate prize coming from Pennsylvania. Donald Trump also won his home state by a mind-boggling margin (but lost to John Kasich in his own borough of Manhattan). MOMocrats Cynematic, Karoli and Donna Schwartz Mills discuss this and non-election news in this week's political podcast from the progressive point of view. An Engender Media Group production.
