Age bias complaints surge in bad economy
MSNBC    Share   Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
After getting laid off from her job at a private school, Joyce Kalivas-Griffin was heartened to see virtually the same job open up at another school in her area. Kalivas-Griffin, 57, applied for the job, but heard nothing. Then the job was posted again, and she applied again, this time submitting a resume that she had edited to mask her age. The second time, she said she was called in for an interview, but eventually lost out to a younger candidate. Kalivas-Griffin doesn't think that the other candidate was any less qualified, but she does think that her own age played a role in not getting the job. More

Medical researchers say U.S. women remain vastly underrepresented in biomedical research compared with men. Scientists from Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago say despite significant differences in the way females experience many diseases, medications and therapies — and despite federal mandates to include women in studies — there is much that still needs to be done.

The 'end of men' isn't the end of racism
ColorLines magazine    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Men have it hard these days. The recession took their jobs, be it construction or finance. They're not attending or graduating from college very much. They're having to take business classes that tell them to work on their communication skills. Women, by comparison, are flooding college campuses, holding down most of the country's jobs, and leading a couple of countries around the globe. This is the picture of gender relations drawn by Hanna Rosin in the latest issue of "The Atlantic." "The postindustrial economy is indifferent to men's size and strength," she writes. "The attributes that are most valuable today — social intelligence, open communication, the ability to sit still and focus — are, at a minimum, not predominantly male." More

Program guides minority students to pharmacy
St. Louis Post-Dispatch    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
Two years ago, Mario Coronado was considering an engineering or pre-med major in college. Now at 18, Coronado has a full-tuition scholarship to St. Louis College of Pharmacy worth about $130,000, and he's guaranteed a job at Barnes-Jewish Hospital's pharmacy for six years after he graduates. He wouldn't have received the scholarship — or had the desire to be a pharmacist — without attending the BESt Summer Pharmacy Institute in 2008 and 2009. More

Climate of uncertainty for gay rights
Newsweek    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail article
There have been gains on issues large and small, from hospital visitation rights for same-sex couples to the passage of hate-crimes legislation and congressional votes that could open the door to repeal of the military's "don't ask, don't tell" ban on openly gay soldiers. Two of the country's top legal minds, Ted Olson and David Boies, have just finished closing arguments in a highly publicized trial seeking to overturn California's ban on gay marriage, and the State Department just made it possible for transgendered citizens to have passports reflecting their sexual identity without undergoing gender-reassignment surgery.
