Many of the city’s most popular restaurants have reopened for indoor dining at 50 percent capacity, but the magic has yet to reach some wonderful and/or iconic places that remain depressingly dark inside and out.
An advocacy group on Thursday called on Facebook Chief Executive Officer Mark Zuckerberg not to create a version of photo-sharing app Instagram for children who are under 13, as it would put them at “great risk.”
This week’s guest on “Renaissance Man” is someone I’ve grown up with in the biz, as they say. I’ve known Charissa Thompson since the early 2000s, when we were both on “The Best Damn Sports Show Period,” and it’s been a pleasure to see her grow into one of the premier sportscasters. She hosts “Fox NFL Kickoff,” and is a dynamo of a broadcaster, a human and a friend. One thing she is not: a phony.
When Bay Ridge residents Jennifer Palumbo and Mike Siscoe went house shopping in Northern Westchester over the summer, they were hunting for a place with four bedrooms: one for each of their sons, ages 5 and 12 — and one for each of them.
New Yorkers are facing the light at the end of the pandemic tunnel, and it isn’t pretty — prompting them to flock to plastic surgeons to get ready for a summer of fewer masks, more socializing and a return to the office.
Google has utilized a secret program to track bids on its ad-buying platform — and has been accused of using the information to gain an unfair market advantage that raked in hundreds of millions of dollars annually, according to a report.
Last November, Justin Churchill traveled around the US for six weeks, but the Jersey City, New Jersey, software engineer didn’t touch his unlimited vacation time. Instead, he took a sabbatical, no questions asked.
BERLIN — Alarmed by a rise in online anti-Semitism during the pandemic, coupled with studies indicating younger generations lack even basic knowledge of the Nazi genocide, Holocaust survivors are taking to social media to share their experiences of how hate speech paved the way for mass murder.
Last year when the pandemic shut everything down and put all sports on the sidelines, one dude leaned into his love of fighting to literally push his way through restrictions and our collective fear. In the process, he created the blueprint that would allow athletes to compete in this bizarre new world. That man, UFC’s Dana White, is my guest on this week’s episode of “Renaissance Man.”
I started a new job at a large company with a very “in-your-face” culture. I’ve never worked in an environment like this and I don’t like it. I don’t see myself lasting long, but I don’t have any better options. I routinely have meetings with my bosses plus quarterly self-reviews. How should I handle questions about how I like the job, what’s my favorite part of the company culture, etc.? Should I fake it or tell them what I really think?If the culture is “in-your-face,” it didn’t happen randomly but was intentional. Questions such as “what do you like about the culture?” demonstrate their bias for the culture. If they really cared what people thought, they would do anonymous engagement surveys. You could tell them to take this job and shove it, but that’s probably not in your best interests. A more practical approach would be to “fake it” until you find another job. That doesn’t mean that you have to say that you like it. Tell them you like your job and you are learning to navigate the culture. It might not feel as good as unloading the unvarnished truth, but that’s unlikely to change their chosen culture anyway. You have to think about what’s in your best interests.
