Is Your Boss Discriminating Against You for Being a Mom? Here’s What to Do

Click here to read the full article.

We don’t have to remind you that it’s been a rough four months for working parents. According to a recent survey from Udemy, 90 percent of working moms feel that childcare and homeschooling are keeping them from doing their jobs, and 78 percent of working parents are concerned that this “new normal” will have a long-lasting effect on their career and quality of life. That certainly was the case for Drisana Rios, who was working for an insurance company in San Diego until last month, when she said she was fired for going to HR about her boss’ discrimination against her as a mother working from home.

In June, Rios went viral with her Instagram post about how her boss had complained frequently about her children making noise during online meetings.

Connecticut is preparing for three different scenarios for the opening of schools and a final decision on how education will look will be made in a month, Gov. Ned Lamont said Monday.

Educators and the state are planning for all learning to take place in schools, but that could be modified to a mix of online and in-class learning or, if there is a coronavirus surge, all education will shift to at-home learning.

“Things change,‘’ Gov. Lamont said at his afternoon COVID-19 briefing, noting that San Diego and Los Angeles decided Monday to shift to an online learning model. “We still have very low metrics compared to San Diego and Los Angeles and most of these other states.”

States sue Trump administration over college student visa rule

WASHINGTON – Seventeen states and the District of Columbia sued President Donald Trump’s administration Monday to block a new rule that would force international college students to leave United States if they’re only enrolled in online classes this fall.

Some universities are planning to offer classes entirely online because of concerns about the pandemic. The new rule could be devastating for students and universities alike. 

The lawsuit, filed by 18 attorneys general against the Department of Homeland Security, calls the new rule a “cruel, abrupt and unlawful action to expel international students amidst the pandemic that has wrought death and disruption across the United States.”

The Trump administration issued the new immigration policy last week, as it seeks to force universities and K-12 schools to reopen in the fall despite soaring COVID-19 infections across the country. The lawsuit highlights a July 6 tweet from President Trump declaring: “SCHOOLS MUST OPEN

Devolver Digital showcase features five real games, virtual abandoned expo center, red sauce aplenty

Indie publisher Devolver Digital kept up its mid-year custom of cramming more wild moments than all of its competitors combined into an indulgent, expletive-laden 45 minute routine of game previews and behind-the-scenes scheming through the Devolver Direct 2020, a “live pre-recorded event” broadcast on July 11.

Everyone has an uncle who works at Nintendo, including Devolver Digital’s fictitious CEO and annual showcase host Nina Struthers, whose portfolio includes “Shadow Warrior 3,” “Fall Guys: Ultimate Knockout” and a brain reprogrammed by her Chief Marketing Officer, Linda Masters, the corporate equivalent of Harley Quinn.

Is “Shadow Warrior 3” a gory first-person action game or a pasta chef’s psychotic break? Perhaps both? There’s so much meat and red sauce that it’s hard to tell.

Either way, the deliciously self-confident 2021 release continues the bloody adventures of disgraced corporate shogun Lo Wang. It’s due on PC and, most likely, on consoles sometime

Americans struggle with unemployment delays

For Cocoa, Florida, residents Christine Powell and her fiance, Robert Hammond, the relentless downward economic drag of the past six months has been suffocating.

First, Hammond was put on medical leave in December after he broke his hand. Then, as the 49-year-old landscaper was about to return to his job, the pandemic hit. Hammond applied for unemployment insurance, but he hasn’t received a dime, he said, and no one will answer his or Powell’s repeated calls to Florida’s Department of Economic Opportunity.

“I felt hopeless,” said Powell, 30, a mother of two who works as a supportive living coach at a behavioral health agency. She, too, suffered a wage cut since the start of the pandemic. Her hours were reduced to just 10 per week, and her income keeps her barely above the threshold to qualify for unemployment.

Without enough money to pay their bills, Powell and Hammond had to

How ‘Take Me to the World’ Became One of the Best Sondheim Concerts Ever

Click here to read the full article.

Raúl Esparza thought he would die of embarrassment when the much-touted April 26 90th birthday concert for Stephen Sondheim didn’t launch on time. The two-and-a-half-hour video file of pre-recorded songs was so huge that it took 45 minutes for Broadway.com to upload. There was nothing the concert host and Broadway theater star could do but wait for the event to be ready to blast out to the world. If anything, the technical glitch, which instantly built into a social media hailstorm via such #Sondheim90 tweeters and concert participants as @Lin_Manuel and @RandyRainbow, increased viewership when “Take Me to the World: A Sondheim 90th Birthday Celebration” finally hit YouTube.

So far, the concert held on the 50th anniversary of the opening of Sondheim’s original Broadway production of “Company” has been viewed 2.2 million times and raised over $500 million for ASTEP (Artists Striving To
