Samuel Stebbins 24/7 Wall Street Published 6:00 AM EDT Sep 18, 2018 Companies have a vested interest in keeping their employees happy. Studies show that employee satisfaction is linked to performance, which permeates through every aspect of a business and can mean the difference between success and failure. While employee satisfaction should be the cornerstone of every serious company’s business model, only a handful of businesses excel at maintaining high employee morale. Based on employee reviews posted on Glassdoor, an online platform for former and current employees to review companies, 24/7 Wall Street identified the best American companies to work for. Out of a universe of hundreds, only 18 large companies received a score of more than 4 out of 5 stars. In an interview with 24/7 Wall Street, Sarah Stoddard, community expert with Glassdoor, listed the factors that have the greatest impact on employee satisfaction. “Glassdoor research has found the top three … [Read more...] about Best companies to work for: Did your employer make Glassdoor’s list?

THIS is the dramatic moment cops smashed a car window to save a baby trapped inside a boiling hot car. Officers knocked out the windows after being alerted to a one-year-old in a parked car in Atlanta, Georgia, where the weather outside was 32C. The baby's nan desperately called for help after accidentally locking the little girl inside. In the video she can be heard saying: "I put my keys on the seat and it automatically locked." Two officers rushed to the scene after her mayday call, and decided the best course of action was to smash out the glass. The frantic grandma watches on as they work to free the infant. A car sitting in 24C conditions outside can reach 34C in just ten minutes, and a dangerous 43C after half an hour - making it risky to leave children or pets alone inside even for a short time. Mum warns against covering your baby’s pram with a muslin cloth in the heatwave… after experiment proved temperature inside soared 13 degrees in seven minutes Eventually the … [Read more...] about Police smash car window to save baby from 32-degree heat after nan shut tot inside
AP Updated 2:24 p.m. UTC Jul 23, 2018 LOUDON, N.H. (AP) — Kevin Harvick warned he was charging for the lead with taps on Kyle Busch's rear bumper over the waning laps. Harvick had failed to methodically work his way around the race leader with a clean pass, so he set aim with his Ford on Busch for the knockout shot. Harvick nudged the right side of the Toyota and jostled Busch out of his groove and three lanes up the track. He zipped to the front with a textbook bump-and-run that led to a beer-soaked celebration and left Busch fuming — the move of the race in another stellar showcase for the leader of the Big Three. Harvick outdueled Busch over the final 10 laps to win a thrilling battle of two of NASCAR's dominant drivers Sunday at New Hampshire Motor Speedway. "I felt like it was my best opportunity to do what I had to do to win," Harvick said. "I didn't want to wreck him. But I didn't want to waste a bunch of time behind him." Busch, the temperamental 2015 series … [Read more...] about Harvick uses bump-and-run on Busch to win at New Hampshire
Jayne O'Donnell USA TODAY Published 12:48 p.m. UTC Jun 7, 2018 The White House is starting an anti-opioid advertising campaign targeting young people Thursday, one of its most concrete steps to address opioids since the Trump administration declared the epidemic a public health emergency in October. Actors in the new public education campaign reenact the actual stories of young adults — with only their last names missing — when they were in the throes of opioid addiction. It was created by the Truth Initiative, which helped bring down cigarette smoking among young people over the last 20 years with its "truth campaign" ads. The new opioid ads "bring into sharp relief two major facts: How quickly some people can become hooked and addicted and the lengths to which they will go," Kellyanne Conway, senior counselor to the president, said. The White House Office of National Drug Control Policy (ONDCP) also worked with the Ad Council, … [Read more...] about White House launches opioid education campaign that targets young people using shock value
It was fortunate for the BBC that Donald Glover, aka Childish Gambino, chose last week to release his video This Is America, just as his multi-award winning sitcom was about to make its debut on terrestrial television in the UK. That video is an extraordinary thing, a beautiful dance, a sermon and a provocation, and its visual style (courtesy of Glover’s frequent collaborator, director Hiro Murai), achieved a reach well beyond the music’s usual orbit. Atlanta (BBC iPlayer / Sundays, 10pm, BBC Two) is different, and it’s possible to get tied up trying to explain why. Partly this is because Glover is not overly interested in explaining himself, which is probably as it should be. Mostly it’s because the show doesn’t stay the same from episode to episode. What starts out as a low-energy comedy about Earn (Glover), a college drop-out managing the rap career of his cousin, Alfred (Brian Tyree Henry) — who records as Paper Boi — … [Read more...] about Best TV: Bulletproof, Pangolins and Britain’s Royal Weddings
