The Things We Say
by Nan S. Russell - May, 2014
A three hour delayed connecting flight in Minneapolis created headaches for me and other business travelers seeking to still reach their destinations that day. All seats in the narrow gate area were filled and briefcases, roller-boards, and more passengers occupied available floor space. Every half hour the gate agent updated us on the status of a part being flown in to fix a rather minor, but important, mechanical issue on ou...

The most obvious and common avenue of defense for a contractor is to challenge the construction of the pools used in the discrimination analysis. In order to successfully mount this kind of challenge the contract...

Like a lot of career advice, this is fine in theory but almost impossible in practice. When the job posting states that you must give your salary requirements, or when the interviewer asks you directly, what are you supposed to say? “I’m sorry but I don’t want to answer that question” will probably not go...
