BLOG: Why March for Science?

This Saturday's march is more than just a fun way to celebrate science. How many times per day does the average American rely on science? When you make your breakfast in the morning, we trust that what we bought at the grocery store is not infected with harmful bacteria or laced with toxic pesticides, thanks to the US Food and Drug Administration. When we commute to work in the morning, we trust that consumer protection agencies regulate that vehicles have…

OPINION: Janus v. AFSCME threatens the strength of unions

In some ways we are not surprised as our efforts since 2012 have been met over and over again in these ways. Such behavior has happened at all levels: school board, superintendent’s office, legal, principals, counselors, everyone.…

Woman Alleges Steve Wynn Used Her Job, Executive Boyfriend’s as Leverage for Sex

A former employee at the Golden Nugget and Mirage alleges Steve Wynn coerced her into a two-year-long sexual relationship by making implicit threats to not only her job but also her boyfriend’s. Meg, who doesn’t want to use her last name, says she first appeared on Wynn’s radar when she attended the opening of the Mirage in 1989 with her then-fiance, an executive with the hotel company.  The two never married. It was a Cinderella moment for me. “It was a Cinderella…
