Sex Discrimination in the Workplace
Beth Zoller, JD
“In order to combat sex discrimination in the workplace, it’s critical for employers to be proactive and develop, implement and enforce discrimination, harassment and retaliation policies and provide comprehensive training to all employees and supervisors. Recognize that discriminatory and harassing actions may be subtle but they must be addressed and all individuals in an organization held accountable.”
Although it’s been over 50 years since the passage of Title VII and women comprise approximately half of the workforce, sex discrimination is still rearing its ugly head in the workplace. Five anchorwomen at the New York City news channel NY1 sued parent company Charter Communication alleging that they were “marginalized and cast aside to make room for younger women and men.” Further, the plaintiffs allege that they “found their on-air time dramatically reduced, anchoring opportunities decreased, prime reporting opportunities taken away and promotional efforts eliminated.”
Financial Tips for Parents of College Students
Wealth Transfer Advisor

“It should not be a shock that kids out on their own for the first time can make poor choices. Finding ways to protect them – and you – and save money is key to their future. Not all learning comes from the books at college.”
It’s that time of year when parents become empty nesters as their kids head off to college. In addition to picking out the right books, towels/bedding and mini-fridge, there’s a lot more parents should be considering before leaving their children in the rearview mirror. Here are five key things to do before sending your child off to college. • Protecting yourselves: minimize your potential liability related to your child’s actions by changing the title of the car and/or insurance • Protecting your child: have your child name you as power of attorney on both property and healthcare • Saving on taxes: take that extra step in putting money in the state-sponsored 529 – even if it’s right before s/he goes off to college – and immediately use it to pay the school • Saving on tuition: find out the avenues in which you could garner the in-state tuition rate if you live out of state • Starting your child down the financial responsibility path: set up a matching gift arrangement for a Roth IRA.

- Semantic Search: How to Write Content That Anticipates Searchers’ Needs. Search engine companies play their cards close to the chest when it comes to the nitty-gritty of search algorithms, but one recurring trend has become clear over the last 20 years or so: In Google’s ideal world, our modern concept of “SEO” wouldn’t exist at all. More and more, search engines are utilizing complex semantic search algorithms to divine both meaning and context from a user’s query. Here’s what that means for content creators: https://prn.to/2Y34n3w
