    American Express distributed handouts to its employees detailing microaggressions to avoid, ways to understand one’s privilege and tips on how to “be an ally,” reveal whistleblower documents posted Wednesday and obtained by journalist Christopher Rufo. One of the materials tells the credit card company’s employees to “identify the privileges and advantages” they have before standing up for others. The employees were also advised not to speak over their black and African-American co-workers and refrain from giving “unsolicited advice” or making assumptions when listening to others’ stories. White employees are told not to utter common phrases such as “I don’t see color,” “we are all human beings,” and “everyone can succeed in this society if they work hard enough,” or they will be considered “microaggressors” against their black colleagues. pic.twitter.com/WcOT6wYJsm — Christopher F.

    Almost half of all New York Times employees say they don't believe they can express their views freely at the newspaper, according to a company survey.    A poll conducted among staff in December revealed negative responses to questions regarding company culture, the New York Post reported.  According to the report, only 51 per cent of NYT employees agreed with a statement claiming there is 'free exchange of views in this company; people are not afraid to say what they really think.'  A review of the findings found that those results were 10 per cent lower than the 'benchmark', or the average response to that question at other companies, according to the Post. 'Although the majority of us feel well-informed, many indicated that differing viewpoints aren't sought or valued in our work,' the report said.   About 49% of NYT employees did not agree with a survey statement claiming there is a 'free exchange of views in this company', according to The New York Post  'Relatedly, we saw some negative responses on whether there's a free exchange of views in the...

Fuku's rose gold-dusted spicy fried chicken sandwich. (American Express) The Rose Gold Meal, as it’s called, celebrates the return of Amex’s Rose Gold Card design and its new $120 Uber Cash Benefit for Gold Card Members – but you don’t need one to order the flashy sandwiches. Rather, the meals will be available exclusively on Uber Eats on February 13 and 14 (Valentine's Day) in participating locations in New York and Los Angeles.

    Love Lives of Riverdale Stars COVID-19 changed esports—heres how A silent golf tournament, but you can hear the sounds of golf at The American Express LA QUINTA, Calif. – It’s the sounds you miss the most. © Provided by Golfweek No, not the sounds of a roaring crowd when a big-name player hits a clutch shot or makes a key putt. We know those sounds haven’t been part of the PGA Tour since the tour returned from its three-month coronavirus pandemic suspension last June. But with no fans on the course at The American Express this week and a drastically reduced number of volunteers and other personnel that would normally be on the course at a PGA Tour event, the quiet of the golf courses at PGA West this week has been a little disconcerting. It’s a little like watching your favorite movie with the sound completely down on your television. You know the characters are on the screen saying “May the force be with you,” or “Here’s looking at you, kid,” but you can’t hear the words. How...
    CHICAGO CBS) — Lizette Mata, 16, is among Chicago’s latest young victims of gun violence – she was killed this past Thursday night in Gage Park. And we learning that not only was she shot while trying to help someone else, but she was also pregnant at the time. CBS 2’s Marissa Parra on Sunday shared Lizette’s story – and the fear of growing violence – through the eyes of the teenage girl’s teachers. Grief washes over Leonor Martinez in waves. She had to interrupt her interview with Parra, saying, “I’m sorry,” as she broke down. She talks about Lizette, her former student, as if the teen were still here. Reality takes time to sink in. “It broke our heart, like we couldn’t help but cry,” said another former teacher of Lizette’s, Vanessa Saucedo. “This is the conversation we dread.” This time, the news they dreaded is about a little girl they used to see on the playground; the shy, but loving Lizette, whom they watched grow into a young woman. Days ago, Lizette was walking an alley behind the...
    Q: I live right next to the Bay Bridge; I would guess it’s 50 feet away from my window. I’ve gotten used to the traffic noise, but frequently (and more frequently since COVID-19) I hear loud cars and motorcycles accelerating heavily. I’m sure it sounds cool when you’re on the lower deck, but I’d rather not hear it multiple times a day. Are there any laws around noise, and could they be enforced in this particular location? Luke Mulcahy Oakland Like Mr. Roadshow’s Facebook page for more questions and answers about Bay Area roads, freeways and commuting. A: The culprit is COVID-19. Fewer cars have led to higher speeds, which result in more noise. The CHP will be watching for speeders, etc. However, it is hard to crack down on loud vehicles. More traffic will likely result in less noise as cars go slower. Q: The new express lane on southbound Interstate 680 from the Benicia Bridge to Walnut Creek has absolutely no signage indicating what the toll is. There aren’t even structures for signs to be added later....

    A majority of Americans are self-censoring and not sharing their political beliefs because they are fearful of the ramifications, according to a new survey from the Cato Institute. Nearly a third of employed Americans fear their political opinions could cost them their jobs or career opportunities. A Cato Institute/YouGov national survey found that 62% of Americans say the current political climate prevents them from voicing their political convictions because "others might find them offensive." This is up from the survey taken in 2017 when 58% said they were afraid to share their own political beliefs. Self-identified Republicans were the highest percentage to practice self-censorship at 77%, followed by independents at 59%, and 52% of Democrats. Self-identified "strong liberals" were the only ideological group in the country who held a majority in feeling they could freely express themselves. The poll found that 58% of staunch liberals are not afraid to tell others their political beliefs. But even strong liberals are self-censoring themselves more these days — 42% in 2020 compared to 30% in 2017. A new...
    Some NFL coaches want the 2020 regular season delayed due to the coronavirus pandemic, ESPN’s Ed Werder reported. Of the three unnamed NFL head coaches Werder queried, one suggested a delay to the start of the season and another completely doubted the league could play in the midst of COVID-19 outbreaks. The third coach, per Werder, said the situation was “scary.” The coaches were reached by Werder after Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott tested positive for the coronavirus. Commissioner Roger Goodell said NFL teams and players must accept that some level of risk exists due to the virus, sharing the sentiment of NBA commissioner Adam Silver. “So positive tests are going to happen,” Goodell told ESPN.com. “The issue is, can we obviously prevent as many of those from happening, but in addition, treat them quickly, isolate them and prevent them from directly impacting our player personnel.” In a Thursday interview with CNN, Dr. Anthony Fauci said he doubted football could take place in 2020 without the NFL adopting a “bubble” environment similar to the...
