New York • Fresh face or long face? Which one you see on interns at small businesses may depend on whether the boss gives them a chance to shine or do only menial tasks. As business owners prepare to take on interns for the summer or the next academic year, many may not realize these young people aren’t just stand-ins for regular staffers. Owners can quickly learn that interns need mentoring in addition to training, ongoing feedback as well as supervision and perhaps a few life lessons. They may...

Black students at the University of California, Santa Cruz, held a three-day protest to speak out against what they described as a “hostile climate” on the school’s campus. The protest, which was held in one of the administrative buildings and stirred up national news , was put together by the school’s Afrikan Black Student Alliance. Their demands included four-year housing for black students to live in the school’s Rosa Parks African American Themed House  and for the facility be painted the Pan-Afrikan colors of red, green and black, among others. By the end of the third day of protest, the school’s chancellor George Blumenthal  agreed to all of the demands.  Kerr hall is shut down. ✊ — Leyla (@lnicolvs) May 2, 2017 The school’s Rosa Parks African American Themed House  is currently open “to all students whose interests span historical, present-day, and future experiences of predominately Black/African American peoples” but the school agreed it will extend up to a four-year housing guarantee to “all ...

Unilever buys condiment firm after rebuffing Kraft 21.4.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Unilever, which rebuffed a $143 billion takeover proposal from Kraft Heinz Co. earlier this year, is betting that condiments can help re-energize its business.

Critics See Green Shoots Of Sanity Inside Trump's White House 11.4.2017 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
WASHINGTON – After nearly three months in office, President Donald Trump may have finally hit upon an accomplishment that both Republicans and Democrats are applauding: Ridding his West Wing of the influence of chief strategist Stephen Bannon . Bannon, the former head of a white nationalist-friendly website, was removed from the National Security Council and its influential Principals Committee last week. Since then, he has reportedly seen his stock fall within the West Wing amid clashes with Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner, and top economic adviser Gary Cohn. There have also been published reports that Deputy National Security Adviser K.T. McFarland is leaving the NSC to take the ambassadorship to Singapore, and Trump foreign policy aide Sebastian Gorka possibly becoming Trump’s special envoy to Libya. McFarland came to the Trump administration from Fox News, where she was touted as a national security expert, and she has come under fire as unqualified and unsuited for the NSC’s No. 2 position. At a ...

How Kristen Bell Is Trying To Protect The Environment In The Age Of Trump 25.3.2017 Politics on HuffingtonPost.com
As I rode an elevator up to a midtown hotel suite I could never afford to stay in for an interview with  Kristen Bell  about her green lifestyle, a news alert buzzed on my phone. President Donald Trump ’s administration had approved the construction of the Keystone XL pipeline, a project climate change activists have advocated against for years because of its potentially damaging impact on the environment.  The “Good Place” star was in town to promote eco-friendly and sustainable living by way of her new partnership with Tide  and the World Wildlife Fund , which will receive $5 every time someone pledges to live clean using energy saving products.  The irony of the moment was not lost on me or Bell, who has used her platform to advocate for causes like water conservation  and animal rights, as we sat down in between a stuffed animal sloth. (Please take a moment now to watch her meltdown over meeting a sloth IRL , you don’t get the reference.)  “We all have to start thinking about passing earth on,” Bell ...
