Whitney Wolfe Herd Helps Women Advocate for Higher Salary

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.

The Barbie Doctor

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.

Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff by Sean Penn ignites massive interest due to its entertaining plot

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.

Journalists Lacey and Larkin react to Trump’s pardon of Arpaio

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are journalists from Arizona, United States. They are the founders of two media outlets namely the Phoenix New Times and Village Voice media. The two media outlets were crucial in the fight against human injustices and discrimination in the United States.

Lacey and Larkin used them to expose all the people who were misusing the powers they had to discriminate mostly the minority groups in the country. For four decades, they have been supporting the activities of human and civil rights groups in the state of Arizona. Recently, they created an organization known as the Frontera Fund which funds the operations of other groups in the world. Read more: Jim Larkin | Crunchbase and Michael Lacey | Crunchbase

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.

Lacey and Larkin uncovered the rot that was happening behind closed doors in Maricopa County. Joe Arpaio used to hide under the role he was given to keep law and order in the county to do his things. He used the powers to discriminate the people by ensuring that there was no justice for any of them.

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.

Lacey and Larkin are not the kind of people who can be intimidated by rogue officers. They made sure that the actions of the sheriff were let out to the world.

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.

Lacey and Larkin were also not left out of the crimes that Arpaio was committing. They were arrested and persecuted by agents sent by Arpaio for revealing the contents of grand jury proceedings.

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.

Dr. Saad Saad Is Not Only A Pediatrician, But An Inventor

Dr. Saad Saad has had a long and successful career. There has been quite a few amazing highlights like working for Saudi Royalty and going on a dozen medical missions to help children get surgeries they desperately needed and could not afford. Saad Saad has multiple awards and has traveled all over the world. Raised with seven siblings in Kuwait, the future doctor had big aspirations of becoming successful one day, and so did his siblings. Although they came from humble beginnings, all eight children went on to live very successful lives and excelled at their careers.

 

With all the amazing things that Dr. Saad Saad has done in his life, he didn’t stop there and invented two patents to improve two different procedures. These two groundbreaking inventions would save patients’ lives and help make doctors job easier. There are great inventions that help look inside a patient’s body and one of them is called an endoscope. This very helpful optical device goes where the human eye cannot see like inside the mouth in the windpipe and throat. It can also give doctors visual contact with the colon, stomach, and the bladder. They can see what is going on like any possible problems with endoscopes. It is a common understanding that when it comes to children they often swallow hazardous objects including marbles, little toys, food, etc and they get stuck in their throat. With the help of an endoscope doctors can see the foreign objects and remove them so the child will be okay, and it is often life saving.

 

Dr. Saad Saad has used an endoscopes so many times, so it was easy to see that it needed improvements. When it is inserted doctors lose their visibility when fluids in the body surround the endoscope. This makes the whole process take more time, is more tedious, and doctors lose sight of where the endoscope is because they have to take it out and use a suction device to remove the excess fluids so they can see clearly. After that, they have to start the process all over again. Dr. Saad Saad created a device that has a suction apparatus connected to the endoscope so doctors do not lose their eyesight and can remove the fluid. On top of this, it is very cheap to make and very easy to use.

 

The other invention is a electromagnetic location identification device that helps find catheters. It looks a lot like a metal detector. Once the external device locates the internal device and the catheter is perpendicular to it, the external device lights up. This is a much safer way and faster way to find catheters in the body that don’t require and MRI or X-ray. Learn more: https://www.linkedin.com/in/saad-saad-524707159/

US Money Reserve Is Awarded Two DRTV Awards At AdSphere Presentation

US Money Reserve has used some great quality television ad presentations to discuss their gold and silver products, and their ads have been given two category awards by the AdSphere awarding company, DRMetrix. Their ads involve using the Direct Response Television (DRTV) platform which provides an outlet to bring the audience into the conversation in the infomercial or event.

US Reserve also was on DRTV during a 2016 event known as the Gold Summit which had a panel of their executives discussing buying gold. These awards from AdSphere bring more recognition and enhance the company’s reputation since customers get a close-up look at their inventory. But most importantly, US Money Reserve has honored their promises to customers.

US Reserve has sold precious metals since 2001 and has earned the title of “America’s Gold Authority®” over the years. Their gold and silver bullion includes exclusive collector sets not found anywhere else. The latest pieces to be added to their inventory are the Queen Elizabeth II Coronation Ceremony set which is an exclusive deal they have with the Perth Mint. Connect with US Reserve on LinkedIn

Buying gold isn’t simply a purchase like jewelry in order to have fancy items to show off. Gold is an asset you should own as a safety net for your wealth because regular cash, stocks, bonds and real estate holdings are never completely safe. Gold on the other hand has always held high value especially during periods of inflation and stagnation. Learn more about US Money Reserve: https://www.ispot.tv/brands/Iyt/us-money-reserve

You might wonder what you should do first if you’ve never bought precious metals before and aren’t sure which ones would work for you. Fortunately US Money Reserve has a large database of information on their website that has helped people make informed decisions on buying gold.

Their introduction to precious metals can be found in their free kit which is downloadable and also has a word from their president Philip N. Diehl. Diehl worked with precious metals as the 35th US Mint Director and even lobbied Congress to pass legislation on minting the Liberty Platinum Coin.

Diehl has also talked about different kinds of bullion and how each can be sold off when you’re ready to change back to traditional assets. He recommends always buying physical gold from a trusted and verified company with high ethical values like US Money Reserve.

The US Reserve website is relatively easy to make a purchase on, and if you need a little help along the way, you can chat with a live representative on Client-Connect Advantage.
