Google Has Fired The Employee Behind That Controversial Diversity Manifesto, Reports Say

After a controversial memory of a Google engineer in diversity programs the differences of society and gender were viral throughout the weekend, triggering an explosive reaction on social networks, the giant quest n ‘has not Denied media reports Monday night that the employee was fired.

Memory – in which the author suggests, among other things, that biological factors were part of the cause of gender differences in the technology industry and that Google should “stop alienating conservatives” – has provoked a Strong protest in social networks in recent days.

Critics have talked about statements about biological differences such as women, on average, with a “low tolerance to stress” or how Google should “focus on empathy.”

Others, among other Google employees, according to the author, defended his speech, leaving the Google HR store between the sword and the wall as to how to respond.

However, on Monday, after an email from Google CEO Sundar Pichai, “parts of the notes violate our code of conduct and cross the line by promoting harmful gender stereotypes in our workplace.”

Bloomberg News reported that the employee was finished. A spokesman said the company has not commented on individual employees, but it is not disputed that the author of the note was dismissed.

“I’m glad when I woke up this morning, I was not the director of human resources at Google,” said Brian Kropp, who directs HRB practice for CEB.

“If you think the continuum of the workforce, it has an end where people are going to say that this person should be fired,” Kropp said, on the contrary, does not seem to have employees who can d according to their comments .

“Whatever Google decides to do, they’re potentially going to be disappointing for someone along one of these groups or making them angry.”

Danielle Brown, who became vice president of the company for diversity, integrity and good governance, a few weeks ago, and other Google executives issued a statement expressing their disagreement with the trial.

Brown wrote in an internal response that “like many of you, I found that you had advanced incorrect assumptions about gender” and that “you are unequivocal in our belief that diversity and inclusion are essential to our success as a company.”

Ari Balogh, vice president of engineering at Google, wrote in a statement that “exchanging different perspectives is an important part of our culture,” but “one aspect of the position I was deeply concerned about was the inherent party implying that The majority of women or men, feel or act in a certain way.

This is a stereotype, and it is harmful. “Other Google leaders also commented. By the end of Monday Pichai had added their name to the leaders who weighed publicly against the note.

With the subject line “our words are important,” he opened by saying “we strongly support the right of Google employees to express themselves, and a large part of this memory is suitable for discussion, which most Google employees do not Agree with him “.

Narendra Modi’s Israel visit: Tel Aviv’s journey from being a ‘pariah’ to becoming India’s strategic partner

Narendra Modi’s Israel visit: Tel Aviv’s journey from being a ‘pariah’ to becoming India’s strategic partner

In July 1977, a man entered a secret task to help his country forge diplomatic ties with India. However, he had to leave the country without being able to convince the indigenous leaders. The man was none other than Moshe Dayan, the legendary general of Israel became chancellor.

Dayan which did not do so in 1977, finally occurred in January 1992, when India and Israel finally established full diplomatic relations – the only Jewish state in the world. The significant change in the relationship does not develop in the short term.

First, India has recognized the existence of Israel on September 17, 1950. New Delhi has also allowed Tel Aviv to have a consulate in Bombay in 1953.

But with India on the side of the Palestinians, the ties were virtually nonexistent. It is true that even today, Israel is divided into Palestine, as India historically has supports with Pakistan.

India was the first non-Arab country to recognize the Palestine Liberation Organization (PLO) as the sole representative of the Palestinian people.

As a result, the PLO opened its office in New Delhi in January 1975, which received full diplomatic recognition in March 1980 – just weeks after Indira Gandhi returned to power either.

Foreign Minister Indira was PV Narasimha Rao, the man who finally helped India establish strong diplomatic relations with Israel. Under Rajiv Gandhi, India has become one of the first countries to recognize the State of Palestine in November 1988.

It is noted that PLO leader Yasser Arafat has had good relations with the establishment of India, especially the Gandhi family.

Former Foreign Minister Natwar Singh wrote in his book “Walking with Lions: Tales from a Diplomatic Past,” how Indira Arafat called his “big sister” after Cuba Fidel Castro has questioned his tantrums during the opening session Of the NOMAL Summit in March 1983.

In spite of this, India’s ties with Palestine were also built on certain principles.

First, a devastated shared India was against any partition based on religion. This explains why New Delhi voted against the creation of Israel in 1947.

Secondly, as a victim of colonialism, India led by Nehru was at the forefront of the anti-colonial struggle. The ethnic nehruvienne doubling the Palestinian cause as the fight against the colonial oppression of the West. Years later, when the United Nations debated whether Zionism is racism, India voted in favor of the resolution.

Yasser Arafat shared good relations with the government of India, making frequent trips to India. Reuters Yasser Arafat shared good relations with the Indian government, making frequent trips to India.

Third, India was a founding member of the Non-Aligned Movement, a group of Third World countries that did not align itself with the United States or the Soviet Union – the two Cold War superpowers.

However, the predominant line of thought in the NAM camp was closer to that of the Soviet bloc rather than being truly neutral. In addition, India was close to the communist superpower of the time, which had close ties to the Arab world (at least until the mid-1970s) and without diplomatic relations with Israel.

Although these factors have to a large extent play a decisive role in determining the links between India and Palestine, the Hindu right has been very scary congressional Congress losing its traditional Muslim vote behind India’s support for the Palestinian cause and Its refusal to establish links with Israel.

Three Palestinian gunmen wound three Israelis before being shot dead

Three Palestinian gunmen wound three Israelis before being shot dead

Three Palestinians opened fire on Israelis near a holy site for major Jerusalem Friday, wounding three before fleeing into the holy compound where they were shot dead with security forces, police said.

The unusual battle took place inside a sacred hilltop of Jerusalem known to Jews as the Temple Mount and the Muslims as the Noble Sanctuary. The complex is the holiest site for Judaism and the third holiest place in Islam, after Mecca and Medina in Saudi Arabia.

The site has been a flashpoint of violence in the past, causing friction with major Israeli-Palestinian violence, including a Palestinian uprising against the Israeli occupation that lasted for several years.

Police said the site was cleared of people after the attack and will be closed by Friday prayers the highlight of Muslim religious week. It usually attracts tens of thousands of worshipers flocking to Israeli rice and the Israeli-occupied West Bank.

This marked the third time since Israel captured East Jerusalem in the Middle East war since 1967 the authorities ordered the closure of the Muslim-run complex, said Ikrema Sabri, a leader of prayer at the holy place.

Police spokesman Luba Samri said the incident began early Friday morning near the Lion’s Gate, an entrance to the ancient walled city of Jerusalem. The mosque is located a few meters (m) from the lion’s door.

Ms Samri said the attackers opened fire on the Israelis and then fled into the compound. Police chased and killed the attackers, he said.

Amateur video transmission on Israeli television channels showed seconds of what appeared to be a clash between Israeli security forces and the attackers.

In the video, several people are only visible with dark characters in the images from a distance that circulates inside the complex. At one point, one of the figures fell to the ground. At another time, a cloud of smoke, perhaps the shot, was visible.

Two rifles, a pistol and a knife were found in the bodies of the attackers.

Police are investigating how the attackers approached the old city with guns. Strong security is in place in the region, especially on Friday and young Palestinians often stopped and checked by police.

It is the latest bloodshed in a wave of Palestinian attacks that broke out in 2015, partly at the holy site in Jerusalem.

Meanwhile, Palestinian attackers killed 43 Israelis, two Americans and a British tour of stabbings, shots and attacks on military or civilian buses.

During this period, Israeli forces killed more than 254 Palestinians, most of them reported that Israeli attackers, while others were killed in clashes.

Man unzips pant, molests woman mid-air on BLR-Mumbai flight, arrested on landing

Man unzips pant, molests woman mid-air on BLR-Mumbai flight, arrested on landing

Police at Mumbai airport sent a 31-year man in jail on Friday for blinking and improperly touching a co-passenger on a Bangalore-Mumbai flight on June 27.

The defendant has been identified as Sabeen Hamza, and was reserved in section 354, 354 (1) (A) and 509 of the IPC, which deals with violence and outragant the modesty of a woman.

Citing police sources, the Times of India reported that the passenger, who was asleep on Tuesday morning, woke up suddenly when he felt Hamza tampering improperly.

After that, the woman raised an alarm when she saw Hamza try to slip his pants.

The reports add that they warn the Hamza crew and then it is transmitted to airport security after the plane landed in Mumbai.

Security agents and central industrial security forces (FISC) took Hamza to the airport police station, where he was officially detained.

The name of the airline is still unclear.

This incident occurs just two weeks after a man aboard an indigo flight from Hyderabad to Delhi, was surprised to masturbate.

The incident came to light after a co-passenger sitting next to him, complained to the crew.

The man, identified as Ramesh Chand, was handed over to the police and detained after the flight to Delhi.

When the woman alerted the crew, she was assigned to a different seat, and the man asked her to clean the toilet.

The Delhi police had charged under section 509 (word, gesture or act designed to insult a woman’s modesty) and 345A (sexual harassment) of the CIA.

The first high-level incident took place in 2006, while Kerala Minister PWD, PJ Joseph, was forced to resign after a woman accused him of facing her on a plane.

The woman had claimed that she was repeatedly beaten by Joseph, sitting in the seat behind her, when the plane was in the air.

These types of harassment incidents are seemingly common, while TNM had already spoken to several flight attendants, who recounted their version of frequently occurring outdoor incidents.

Hong Kong residents march to defend freedom as China’s president draws a ‘red line’

HONG KONG – The deserts of Hong Kong residents have crossed rivers in defense of their liberation heads, in front of a dock that is considered a threat from mainland China, accuracy two years after the transfer of British rule.

According to the terms of the 1997 transfer, China is a promise to accord Hong Kong to high degree of autonomy to less than 50 years, more Xi a principle that was important to have a “correct understanding” of the relationship between a country And Two systems

Carrie Lam. “Un pays est comme les racines d’un arbre”, at-il déclaré à l’élite de Hong Kong. “The concept of a country, two systems for an advanced future and everything to carry and defend national sovereignty”.
Beaucoup de gens à Hong Kong at the accus of the Chine of violating the autonomy du territoire in 2015 in cinq cinq éditeurs qui publieient des livres de poterie sur direcgeants chinois et les distribuers sur le continent.

Certains are particularly concerned with the intervention of Beijing in order to disqualify the pro-indépendants who have not yet managed the office of the année dernière. Beaucoup de gens s’inquiètent d’une érosion régulière de la liberté de la presse, et dans une gamme de zones, Chine est de plus en plus déterminée à appeler les tirs.

Further, I pointed out that the defenders of Pekin’s authority were not authoritative.

“All attempts to endanger the security and safety of China, central government power and regulatory authority of the Hong Kong administrative region or use Hong Kong for infiltration activities or De sabotage contre le continent, Est un acte qui traverse The ligne rouge et est absolument inadmissible “, At-il dit.

Aiming for a greater share of the multi-bi

QUICK TAKE China’s growing deadly addiction By Hannah Beech

HOW

Developed by Benjamin Hubert of U.K. design studio Layer, the app will track users’ daily carbon footprints using a Fitbit-like device that measures everything from your restaurant order to how far you walk to the lights you use at home (which it will remind you to turn off).

WHEN

Worldbeing aims to launch in
2017, with plans to link the
software to retailers, enabling
users to estimate their output in
advance. “The longer you use it
for, the more attuned it becomes
to your lifestyle,” says Hubert.

WHY

The developers hope the app will
serve as a social network in which
friends can urge one another to
fight climate change. The goal,
they say, is “empowering you to
make better decisions.”

BIG IDEA

Green piece

If you want to reduce your carbon footprint, which should you buy at the grocery store, an apple or a banana? A wearable app called Worldbeing, currently in development, aims to answer that question and others that might cross an eco-conscious mind.

TO LIVE IN CHINA, HOME TO MORE THAN 300 million smokers, is to marinate in a haze of tobacco fumes. Now a new study pub­lished in the medical journal the Lancet has found that to live in China is, all too often, to die from cigarette smoke. By 2050, smoking could lead to 3 million deaths a year in China, and if rates don’t fall, at least half of Chinese males could eventually die from their nico­tine habit—what the Lancet calls a “growing epidemic of premature death.”

Although smoking is declining worldwide, two-thirds of Chinese men light up, according to the study. (A relatively small fraction of Chi­nese women smoke.) And while luxury-ciga­rette cartons are a common gift during Chinese holidays, an average pack costs little more than a dollar. Even the poorest Chinese can afford to
smoke. And why shouldn’t they? Cigarette com­panies advertise in schools and health clinics.

The Chinese government knows it has a medical crisis on its hands, even if many Chi­nese men still consider smoking an accept­able social rite. As of this summer, smoking was banned in public indoor spaces in Bei­jing, a prohibition that is not always enforced. Still, the world’s largest tobacco company, China National Tobacco Corp., which churns out more than 2.5 trillion cigarettes a year for dozens of domestic brands, is owned by none other than the Chinese government. In fact, 7% of the state’s revenue comes from tobacco. That’s an addiction that may be even harder to quit than smoking.

17, died of a brain injury three days after hurting his head in a game. Earlier this season, Bui report­edly had what his school called a mild concussion but was cleared by a doctor to resume playing.

“I don’t see how a reasonable person would argue that we should count pitches to protect the elbow but not count hits to protect the brain,” says Stefan Duma, a professor of biomedical engineering at Virginia Tech. Duma’s research has shown that football players as young as 7 have sustained head impacts at forces similar to those in a car crash.

Here’s how hit counts would work. The goal is to track every hit to the head at a certain level of force in both practices and games. That can be done by outfitting helmets with sensors. Then we need to determine how many shots a player can sustain before sitting out. There is no magic number, but a good starting point could be limiting high schoolers to 90 blows in a week exceeding 20 G’s—roughly equivalent to the whiplash from a mild fender bender. Eric Nauman, a biomedical-engineering professor at Purdue, suggests that number on the basis of the school’s brain-imaging research, which found that almost every high school player hit at this rate or greater showed evidence of brain injury, even if he didn’t have concussion symptoms.

None of the leading football organizations is ready to sign on. Dr. Mitchel Berger, a neuro­surgeon and member of the NFL’s Head, Neck and Spine Committee, says, “It’s a leap of faith to as­sume that this is going to provide us with any de­finitive information to help us right now better determine things like return to play or whether a player is susceptible to another concussion or not.”

On the college level, the NCAA’s chief medical officer, Dr. Brian Hainline, said it was researching the effectiveness of sensors “so that we can make a science-driven decision about head-impact ex­posure.” Pop Warner, which runs youth leagues across the nation, says it’s open to the idea but doesn’t believe the technology is ready.

Recognizing that the very act of playing can have lasting consequences cuts to the heart of foot­ball’s problem with traumatic brain injuries. “Foot­ball culture is resistant to counting hits, since peo­ple don’t think they’re worth counting,” says Chris Nowinski, a former college player who runs the Concussion Legacy Foundation.

The science makes it clear that they are. Last month, researchers at the Department of Veterans Affairs and Boston University said 87 of 91 brains of deceased NFL players showed signs of CTE, a devastating neurological disease believed to result from blows to the head. “There’s more than enough evidence to say we need a hit count, right now,” says Nauman. No hit-count proposal will be perfect. But neither are pitch counts. Baseball started some­where. Why can’t football do the same?              □
