(FROM THE ARTICLE: Shiu called for more power and resources for her office to be able to better handle workplace equity issues.
“What is required to address this issue is more resources for the agency. What is required is that every contractor has to file its affirmative action plan so we don’t get the plans just when we come knocking. What is required is that the OFCCP has the subpoena authority that the [Equal Employment Opportunity Commission] has,” Shiu said. The panel’s talk also focused on specific government agencies as well as the general ethos in tech that critics say contributes to the lack of workplace diversity. The panel members said the lack of diversity made it harder for tech companies to spot and fix certain problems. “I felt there was a cultural problem at Airbnb,” said Laura Murphy, a senior adviser at the company. “Three young, white guys, who founded the company 8 years ago now run a company that’s valued at $30 billion. Doing that in 8 years, they grew very fast. They didn’t change their social networks in the process of growing. We live in a very segregated society. When issues of segregation came up they were turning to each other, which wasn’t the most effective option.”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: But not so fast! Donald Trump has a media coup of his own to brag about. Seems that some eagle-eyed investigative reporters at the Baltimore Gazette have brought home a dilly of a scoop: “Multiple reports and leaked information from inside the Clinton camp claim that the Clinton campaign was given the entire set of debate questions an entire week before the actual debate.” . . . The Baltimore Gazette, a newspaper that existed very briefly just after the Civil War, has returned online as a site to spread fake news stories and other nonsense. . . Yes, turns out the Baltimore Gazette is just one more in an increasingly baffling array of “parody” news sites that swap the humor of The Onion with the crackpottery of your great-uncle’s emails, all while dressing up their wares with as close an approximation to real news as they can muster. (Weigel reports that the “Gazette” does salt its bogus offerings with occasional stories that are on the level ― and stolen from other sources.))

— A Miss Universe  Alicia Machado insulted by Donald Trump steps up for Hillary Clinton – AP  (DIERSEN: Who has insulted you?  I should write a book about those who claim to be religious, conservative, and/or Republican who have insulted me.  They know that I have a policy of forgiving those who trespass against me.)

— China Grapples With HIV Cases Among Gay Men, but Stigma Runs Deep  Surge in infections worries health authorities and prompts soul-searching in conservative society  (DIERSEN: Will the Democrats and the RINOs ask China to send all its HIV people to America?)
