Refinery29 recently published Whitney Wolfe Herd’s article “Whitney Wolfe Herd: How to Build a Workspace Where Women Can Thrive”. The article discusses the company’s growth and how the CEO of Bumble is tackling inequality in the workspace by empowering women to advocate for higher salaries.
Whitney Wolfe Herd grew the company out of an employee’s parent’s basement but it quickly grew to a billion-dollar company with more than 80 employees in 5 different countries. Her first three employees were college graduates with little experience in the work force but with determination to spare. They began with grassroots marketing by drawing on the sidewalk on college campuses and dressing up Wolfe’s dog in a bumble bee costume.
Yet, as the company began to grow, Whitney Wolfe had to make decisions about salary. She began to hire women and men with more experience to help train her young staff. She needed to make the decision about whether she would pay her early team more or pay for the experience they lacked. She also noticed that men were more likely to advocate for themselves in the hiring process for higher salaries.
This was why Whitney Wolfe makes it a priority for everyone at her company to discuss salary. She encouraged women to speak about money and has a required discussion about salary semi-annually with all of her employees. Though they don’t always grant the pay raise, she believes that each employee needs to learn how to advocate for themselves. She also encourages her employees to plan for professional growth and career trajectory to help all of her employees feel confident, secure and safe to discuss those things.
She believes it is a task that business leaders need to take on. They are capable of creating their own cultures and interior business structures that should focus on creating equality for women. Bumble’s director’s roles are all filled by women.
Wolfe Herd’s feminist stance was threatened by neo-Nazi’s according to the Business Insider article “The 28-year-old CEO of Bumble Travels with a Bodyguard After Staff Details Were posted on a neo-Nazi Website”. The article reveals that personal information of Bumble employees was released on a neo-Nazi website.
Was the course noodle in the University of Texas Medical School at Galveston. She’s co-author of this publication Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.
I’ve been practicing the surgeon for eight decades. In addition, I perform liposuction – to the abdomen, arms and thighs – and – invasive procedures like Botox injection and soft tissue fillers.
I know that I’m a rarity. There aren’t many physicians who enter cosmetic operation. And of them, only 180 people are all members of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, that’s the major skilled organization of plastic surgeons. And just a dozen people live in Texas.
I believe one reason plastic surgery – all operation – is male-dominated is that you will need to take a minimum of five decades of post-medical education and two years to turn into a fellow physician. For a girl, this means she has to postpone children’s transportation. The civilization of operation is demanding and until it wasn’t inviting to girls. As a physician, like a lady on Wall Street, I must show myself after a year.
A plastic surgeon girl has her benefits. On the one hand, they conduct 91 percent of surgeries on girls. And the great majority of those women aren’t trying to mimic the perfect man archetype of a Barbie doll body. Not. They would like to be operated as they’re ashamed by an asymmetrical or sagging portion of the body. Or her entire body has shifted after giving birth: her breasts are vacant after childbirth or her stomach muscles have spread because of pregnancy. Several patients tell me it’s more pleasant to speak to another girl about specific elements of her body. They know I won’t ever place them.
Sean Penn is a man who is not shy to share his multiple talents to the world, and his debut book, Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff, is a fictitious, satirical book that profoundly sparks up a readers mind. Sean Penn has had his hand in virtually all possible literal platforms and has now embraced writing with his first book. Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff features a controversial, alienated and angry middle-aged man who does all kind of work including selling septic tanks and a part-time assassin.
Bob comes out like an unruly citizen who is keen on challenging the status quo and is very politically aware and is not hesitant to voice his opinions. Bob embraces alternative social and political views. He engages in the contract killing of the senior citizens, whom he thinks are wasting the country’s resources because of their unproductiveness.
In other instances, Bob haphazardly rescues political prisoners and also volunteers in Iraq to help in the rebuilding efforts after the American war. Satire and euphemism are deeply riddled in the book because Sean Penn seems to have a lot in common with his character Bob.
Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff displays great displeasure in the political system and one cannot help but wonder if Sean Penn is expressing his opinions via the main character Bob. The plot of the book is profoundly political and contains characters and scenes that reference real people and actual events that have taken place in the society and Sean Penn’s life.
Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff has a character who is described as a seventy- year old, self-destructive landlord, with orange candy hair. This is quite a candid reference to the current president of the United States. The plot gets more interesting with Bob challenging the Landlord, to a duel and also suggesting that an assassin needs to take care of the Landlord. In some interviews, Sean Penn has maintained that it is all fictional and should not be quoted out of entertainment context even though the issues addressed in the book may be real in the society.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin used the media outlets to expose the actions of the most violent Sheriffs in the history of the United States. Joe Arpaio was the sheriff of Maricopa County. He is among the people who have been using the powers bestowed on them for the wrong reasons.
As a sheriff, he was supposed to ensure that the welfare of all the communities living in the state was under control but this did not happen. He led in violating the rights of the people he was supposed to protect.
Arpaio believed that the immigrants were behind the wrongs that were occurring in the county and the whole country in general, he accused them of taking over the job opportunities meant for the locals among many other biased allegations.
He thought that just because the immigrants were in the country, that was reason enough to punish them. He did not respect the law which requires all human being no matter who they are to be treated equally. It is the right of the people to live wherever they want in the world without being tortured.
The crimes he was committing were so bad that he even led to the death of some people. Some people suffered greatly from the crimes of the sheriff. Immigrants were treated like animals. Lives were lost because of the careless behaviors of the sheriff.
The steps taken by Arpaio was against the law, and that is why when Lacey and Larkin took the matter to court, they were given a reward with a compensation of $3.75 million. this is the money they used to create Frontera Fund.
