Working from home is a privlege not a right

Yahoo’s new CEO has informed the employees that effective June they will have to bring their talents into the office. No more working from home. Once this information was released to the workers we have heard the debate. Is this fair? So many working moms were able to do their work from home and now they have got to punch the time clock. In some cases the employees that telecommute have been able to do it from out of state locations and with the new policy they will no longer be able to work for Yahoo. I do feel for that group, but for the workers that live within driving distance of the office it is time to say “it was good while it lasted”. Working from home is a privlege it is not a right. Companies have the right to set their own policies and they do what will work most effectively for the business. Remember companies are not concerned about your quality of life. They are concerned about the bottomline–making money. Apparently in this season Yahoo believes workers need to be back in the cubicles, and if the telecommuters don’t want to do that there are millions of unemployed Americas that would love to drive to work.

Have we seen too much of FLOTUS?

Haters are gone to hate that’s a given, but this question is being asked by ardent supporters. Is it time for the first lady to take a step out of the spotlight? Is she being over-exposed or have her two last appearances been polarizing. We saw her dancing with Jimmy Fallon and Sunday night we saw her surprise appearance at the Oscars. Keep in mind she is not the first White house resident to appear on the awards show. Share your thoughts.

The Onion calls child actress Quvenzhane Wallis a “cunt”…not funny, not cool…Unacceptable

the onion
The Onion is known for his sarcastic, irreverant take on pop culture, but last night they went too far. You don’t call a woman the c-word it’s not funny and to call a child this vile name is way beyond the pale. Quvenzhane Wallis is a 9 year old child, a baby. What fool thought this tweet was appropriate? A written apology is in order, but that probably won’t happen they probably just love the attention this characterization will garner and they will simply keep being obnoxious because that must be part of their mission statement. Please tell me what kind of person finds this funny? Share your thoughts.

To the publication’s credit, the Onion appears to have realized this. The company’s CEO, Steve Hannah, just published a Facebook post asking for Wallis’ forgiveness:
I offer my personal apology to Quvenzhané Wallis and the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences for the tweet that was circulated last night during the Oscars. It was crude and offensive—not to mention inconsistent with The Onion’s commitment to parody and satire, however biting. No person should be subjected to such a senseless, humorless comment masquerading as satire. The tweet was taken down within an hour of publication. We have instituted new and tighter Twitter procedures to ensure that this kind of mistake does not occur again.In addition, we are taking immediate steps to discipline those individuals responsible. Miss Wallis, you are young and talented and deserve better. All of us at The Onion are deeply sorry.

Ebony magazine response to Pastor Jamal Bryant

Yesterday Pastor Jamal Bryant of Baltimore posted on Twitter a letter that he had sent to Ebony magazine regarding an allegation of sexual misconduct with a 17 year old. Bryant has admitted having an affair that led to divorce, but not with a 17 year old. Ebony’s reponse to Bryant is below and it is a little unsettling. They admit printing the rumor because it was scandalous not because it was true, but by printing it and circulating it to their entire readership did they not think this could cause Bryant future harm? Read they statement and share your thoguths.

“We understand that Dr. Jamal H. Bryant is now getting inquiries regarding a rumor we referenced in the magazine. We published the outrageous allegation as it was scandalous, not because it was confirmed. We did not intend to offend Dr. Bryant, and hope that our readers understand the spirit in which the editorial comment was presented.”
