Irons Globe Staff March 24, 2019 Recruiters at big corporations often focus on college students with the best grade point averages as a way to whittle down the slew of applicants seeking internships and entry-level jobs.But the practice is being criticized by some education advocates who say it automatically eliminates many underrepresented students — particularly low-income minorities — who may be perfectly capable of doing the job but don’t meet the grade threshhold.The automatic “screening out” is causing some colleges and nonprofits to redouble their efforts to get companies to prioritize other skills that underserved students could bring to their internships and job experience — including the ability to lead, problem-solve, and rise from adversity.

opinion Editorial board Arizona Republic Published 1:08 p.m. UTC Aug 2, 2018 No other political body in the state has as tarnished of a reputation as the Arizona Corporation Commission. A poll last year found that nearly two out of three Arizonans believe the commission that regulates public utilities and helps set consumer rates has been “corrupted” by outside influences and spending. A former commissioner, Gary Pierce, went on trial this year on accusations he took bribes to help a water company operator; the case ended in a mistrial because of a hung jury. It is no surprise, then, that corruption and ethics drive both the Republican and Democratic primaries this year. It is not a simple case, however, of tossing out the two GOP incumbents up for re-election and installing challengers. Here’s why. GOP incumbents took different paths Corporation Commission Chairman Tom Forese and Commissioner Justin Olson are running as a team, but … [Read more...] about This is the only way to begin fixing Arizona’s tarnished Corporation Commission

Texting and emailing has proven to be one of the more modern — and effective — ways of doing so. But if you’re tired of those messages constantly buzzing your phone, there’s bad news. While the law clearly bans commercial email and text message spam, things are different when politics are thrown in the mix. According to the Federal Trade Commission, it’s illegal for businesses to send unsolicited emails or text messages unless the sender gets permission first. There are several measures on the books regulating this. The Texas Tribune thanks its sponsors. Become one. For starters, Steve Augustino, an attorney at the Washington D.C.-based law firm Kelley Drye & Warren, said consumers … [Read more...] about Some voters say they’re inundated with political spam this year.

I never had a relationship in high school and, out of nervousness, declined some opportunities in college. Later, I had two frightening nonconsensual, nonpenetrative encounters. When I sought help, I was advised that I take the time to explore my sexuality as part of my healing process. I think I might be ready to act, but as a man who anticipates that my partner will also be a man, I’m not sure how to square my sexual desires with my conviction that I should be donating blood. I have forgone donating blood before. My parents wouldn’t let me until I was 18. I took Accutane. And I lived in a country that requires a one-year residency for blood donations. But each prohibition had a clear limit. Were I to have … [Read more...] about Should I Forgo Gay Sex to Donate Blood?
