'Moms are persona non grata': are tech startups hostile to working mothers?

From all-nighters at the office to insensitive male coworkers, working mothers and mothers-to-be often describe the tech world as hostile to their needsSara Mauskopf was nine months pregnant and about to go on maternity leave, when her boss, the Postmates CEO Bastian Lehmann, mentioned her by name at an all-hands meeting: staff would no longer be able to use one of the company’s conference rooms, Lehmann said, because Mauskopf would need it pump breast milk when she returned to work. “I felt very called out and embarrassed,” recalled Mauskopf, who was the delivery startup’s director of product at the time. “It singled me out as the reason for the conversion and made me feel like I was taking something away from everyone.” Continue reading...

ISIS Warns Russia: You’re Next

Russ Read Security, This can't be good.  Islamic State militants in Afghanistan threatened to conduct attacks inside Russia in the group’s most recent propaganda video. The ISIS militants, known locally as Islamic State-Khorasan province (IS-K), claimed they were aware that Russia’s Federal Security Service Bureau (FSB) had infiltrated the terror group, according to Circa News’ Sara Carter. The video featured the interrogations of several alleged spies who are forced to admit that they were working for Russia. ISIS militants later executed the accused men, warning “we will take our revenge on Russia” for the country’s involvement in military operations in Syria. ISIS has attacked Russia only once since its rise in 2013. The group targeted FSB headquarters in Khabarovsk, a city in Russia’s far eastern region in April. Russian officials claimed that A.V. Konev, a local 18-year-old resident, opened fire inside the headquarters’ lobby, killing two. An ISIS fighter featured in the video, who claims to be Russian, said that many native Russians are flocking to Afghanistan to join IS-K. Russia has a significant Muslim population, generally located in the North Caucasus region. Law enforcement officials in Chechnya believe that as many as 4,000 Chechens have joined ISIS in Iraq and Syria. Russia has taken a hard line against ISIS in its rhetoric, but has limited its attacks against the group. The Kremlin sent forces to Syria under the guise of protecting its ally, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, against ISIS forces, but a study in October revealed that Russian strikes were focused mostly on Syria rebel targets in the early part of the month.

Republicans Hold On To Mick Mulvaney's Old House Seat In South Carolina

Republican Ralph Norman won Tuesday’s special election in South Carolina for a U.S. House seat, defeating Democrat Archie Parnell in the solidly GOP 5th Congressional District, according to The Associated Press. Norman, a 63-year-old real estate developer and former state lawmaker, replaces fellow Republican Mick Mulvaney, who left Congress to become President Donald Trump’s budget director. Parnell, a 66-year-old tax attorney, mounted an unusually ambitious challenge in the district where the conservative Mulvaney cruised to re-election in 2016. His scrappy campaign, and the support it received from the national Democratic Party, excited local activists accustomed to being written off by party leaders. Michele Horne, 42, a Rock Hill-based supporter of Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) who volunteered for Parnell, blamed the outcome on her fellow constituents’ strong identification with the Republican Party. “South Carolinians still have not gotten to the point where they can look at issues versus keeping it strictly partisan politics,” said Horne, a co-founder of the progressive #DemEnter group. “On the issues, Archie is clearly a better choice for anybody who lives in the state other than very wealthy people.” Norman is likely to add to the strength of the House’s contingent of fiscal hard-liners. He has said he would consider joining the House Freedom Caucus, a group Mulvaney helped found and which is comprised of the chamber’s most conservative Republicans. Norman campaigned heavily on his commitment to helping Trump enact his agenda, including the repeal of Obamacare. He has also embraced raising the Social Security retirement age and, following last week’s shooting of House Majority Whip Steve Scalise and others at a baseball field, said he believes more members of Congress should carry guns. In addition, Norman touted the endorsements of high-profile national conservatives, including Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Texas) and Fox News host Sean Hannity. Trump recorded a robocall for Norman over the weekend and tweeted his support for the GOP candidate on Monday: Ralph Norman, who is running for Congress in SC's 5th District, will be a fantastic help to me in cutting taxes, and....— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 19, 2017 ....getting great border security and healthcare. #VoteRalphNorman tomorrow!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 19, 2017 The district, a largely rural swath of the state that stretches from Sumter in the south to the suburbs of Charlotte, North Carolina, was always going to be difficult territory for a Democrat.   Mulvaney was reelected there in 2016 by 20 percentage points, and Trump defeated Democrat Hillary Clinton among the district’s voters by 18.5 points. But in a year when Democrats have been champing at the bit to humble Trump with upset victories in special election races, including Georgia’s 6th Congressional District, which they also lost late Tuesday, Parnell ran his party’s most formidable campaign in the district since 2010. That was when Mulvaney unseated veteran Rep. John Spratt, ending the Democrats’ more-than-century-long hold on the seat. Parnell raised $763,000 for his bid, including $305,000 that he either lent or donated to the campaign. Norman raised $1.3 million, much of which also came from his own pocket. The national attention and resources showered on what polls showed to be a neck-and-neck special election Tuesday in Georgia’s 6th congressional district overshadowed the race in South Carolina. But Democrats in Washington did not ignore Parnell entirely. Shortly after Parnell released an internal poll at the end of May showing that he had narrowed Norman’s lead to 10 percentage points, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee contributed $275,000 to his bid. Democratic National Committee Chairman Tom Perez, DNC Associate Chairman Jaime Harrison and American Federation of Teachers President Randi Weingarten canvassed for Parnell as part of the kickoff of the DNC’s “Resistance Summer.” Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley and Ohio Rep. Tim Ryan also campaigned for Parnell in person, while former Vice President Joe Biden taped a robocall for him.  Parnell was previously a tax adviser for Wall Street giant Goldman Sachs. Before entering the private sector, he served as a tax attorney for the Department of Justice and staff director of the House Ways and Means Committee. Rather than shy away from his lucrative Hong Kong-based stint at Goldman Sachs, Parnell claimed that experience gave him the expertise needed to cut middle-class families’ taxes and close corporate tax loopholes. He even laughed about it on more than one occasion.  “I know enough about our crazy tax code to absolutely bore you to tears,” Parnell said in “Know-How,” one of two ads he aired on television. “You have no idea,” Parnell’s wife Sara deadpanned.  Seeking the support of Republicans and independents, Parnell emphasized his commitment to compromising with lawmakers on the other side of the aisle and rejected a push for single-payer health insurance in favor of fixing Obamacare.  At the same time, he didn’t back away from more progressive Democratic positions, such as calling for importation of safe prescription drugs and opposing all cuts to Social Security benefits. He also went on record supporting the Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform law, abortion rights and closing the “default to proceed” loophole that allows guns sales without background checks if the FBI fails to complete the screening within three days. With positions like those, Parnell managed to attract the enthusiastic backing of the local Sanders supporters. “I like the idea that he understands how business works,” said Susan Maxson, a 54-year-old Sanders enthusiast and campaign volunteer. “I’m not gonna hold his previous employer against him by any means.” -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Congressional Baseball Game Goes On One Day After Shooting

Five people, including House Majority Whip Steve Scalise (R-La.), were wounded in the shooting. Scalise was still in critical condition. The game opened with a moment of silence for those wounded.

The lawmakers kneeled in prayer on the field before the game got underway. Several members of the Trump administration were spotted in the stands, including the president’s daughter Ivanka Trump, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, Energy Secretary Rick Perry, White House economic adviser Gary Cohn and White House counselor Kellyanne Conway. According to an announcement during the game, 24,959 tickets were sold, a record for the event.

Ticket sales for the game surged after Wednesday’s shooting, putting the event on track to raise upwards of $1 million. In the wake of the shooting, organizers decided the game must go on, and added the Capitol Police Memorial Fund to the game’s beneficiaries.  “We’re not going to let incidents like this change our way of life or our daily routine. We’re going to go ahead and play the ballgame,” Rep. Michael Doyle (D-Pa.), who manages the Democratic team, said Wednesday.  Rockin our LSU hats before the big Congressional baseball game, in solidarity with Steve Scalise pic.twitter.com/DJdPWsFGsG— Rep. Jared Huffman (@JaredHuffman) June 15, 2017 In a return to his usual dominance, Rep. Cedric Richmond (D-La.) led the Democrats to victory with a complete-game five-hitter. The Republicans scored two runs in the first inning, in part because of some infield throwing errors, but after those first hiccups, the Democrats never looked back. They tore apart the GOP starting pitcher, Mark Walker (R-N.C.) — tagging him for seven runs over four innings — and they added four more runs in the fifth inning, after Richmond tagged a Walker fastball over the left fielder’s head and sent the starting pitcher out of the game.  Things got no better for the Republicans when Rep. Patrick Meehan (R-Pa.) came in as a relief pitcher. Having some control problems, Meehan allowed four more runs — including Richmond, who was already on third — and didn’t return for the sixth. Rep. John Shimkus (R-Ill.) came in for the GOP for some mop-up time and proceeded to shut down the Democrats for the remaining inning. Overall, the game took on a far more bipartisan tone than in recent years. Before the game started, Democrats and Republicans huddled in the outfield for a group prayer. When the teams were announced, instead of standing along opposing base sides, members arched across the infield and gave high-fives to lawmakers from both parties.  Gone were the usual signs in the stands ribbing the opposite party. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.), Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schuler (D-N.Y.), House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.), and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) kicked off the game together. At the end, Doyle, the coach for the Democrats, gave the trophy to Republican coach Rep. Joe Barton (R-Texas) to put in Scalise’s office until he gets better. Barton, accepting the trophy, shook Doyle’s hand, acknowledged the gesture, and said, “We won’t be this nice next year.” Attendees also showed support for Scalise, and advocated for bipartisan unity in the wake of the shooting. Many of the people at the ballpark interviewed by HuffPost expressed hope that the event would send a message to Americans to come together. “We are all sending positive thoughts to Rep. Scalise and we’re all appalled by this horrific crime that took place,” said Sara Kenigsberg, who works at the liberal organization MoveOn.org. “We’re here to support each other against violence like this, and it’s not acceptable.” Hunter Evans, who is interning at the Herald Group, a consulting shop in Washington, agreed. “We need more bipartisanship. We both love America regardless of what party we are.” A friend of Evans who was standing nearby interjected, “Some of us love it more, OK. [Liberals] hate America.” Evans ignored the aside, however, adding that members of both parties had more in common than many believed. “There’s some things we all need to work together on. Everybody in Congress is here because we love America.” Not everyone agreed about the bipartisan nature of the event, however. Mia Lee, who writes for The New York Times’ Modern Love column, said she was put off by the seating arrangement. Attendees by tradition may purchase tickets to sit in the Republican section, the Democratic section or a general admission section. “I think it’s divisive,” Lee said. “While buying tickets, we said, “Oh, let’s sit with the Democrats.’ We want to sit with the Democrats. We don’t want to sit with the Republicans at all. Maybe you can make an argument that it unites people in the game of baseball, but I find it pretty divisive.”  Outside Nats Stadium.

By playing tonight, you are showing the world that we will not be intimidated by threats, acts of violence, or assaults on our democracy.” In a show of bipartisan cooperation, Ryan and Pelosi gave a joint interview on CNN during the game ― the first the two leaders have given together. Ryan donned an LSU hat, while Pelosi wore a purple and gold LSU T-shirt. ”Tonight we’re all Team Scalise,” Pelosi said.

U.S. ambassador: We need stronger Moscow-Washington ties

U.S. Ambassador to Russia John Tefft opening the conference. / Ruslan Shamukov The resolution of global issues requires strengthening of mutual understanding between Moscow and Washington. This was stated by U.S. Ambassador John Tefft at the Fort Ross Dialogue forum organized by Rossiyskaya Gazeta at the end of May 2017. According to the ambassador, “with the global economy developing at unprecedented rates and stakes to resolve global problems higher than ever, such cooperation and understanding acquire special significance. Overall, I would describe Russia-U.S. relations as an almost constant balancing act between cooperation and rivalry.” Tefft added that during difficult times cultural links help maintain relations, referring to the Fort Ross Dialogue forum as an example. The event was originally established to support the Russian fortress Fort Ross, which was founded in 1812 by a Russian-American company based on the Pacific coast of California, 80 km from San Francisco. The fort currently holds the status of a historical park. The forum was established in 2012, in honor of the fort’s 200th anniversary, on the initiative of U.S. company Chevron and two Russian companies: The world’s biggest oil pipeline operator Transneft and shipping giant Sovcomflot. Previously the conference was only organized in America, with the latest held in the fall of 2016 at Stanford University in California. In 2017, the Fort Ross Dialogue was for the first time held in Russia, in the towns Pskov and Izborsk near the country’s western border. “Our cooperation with partners from the Chevron consortium has long grown beyond the boundaries of purely industrial cooperation. We successfully collaborate on a number of cultural, social, and historical projects. Fort Ross is a vivid example,” explained Transneft President Nikolai Tokarev. Nikolai Tokarev, President of Transneft, and Sergei Ryabkov, Russian Deputy Foreign Minister. / Mikhail Sinitsyn / RG Museum cooperation The forum program consisted of two panels. The first was dedicated to cooperation between museums in Russia and the U.S. The second, to important aspects of the global power industry. “Despite the political situation, nothing has changed for us in comparison with, let’s say, the situation six years ago: Those who support Fort Ross in Russia and America are incredibly loyal. Moreover, due to this trust we have the opportunity to recruit more sponsors, and such events really help,” said Sara Sweedler, chairman of the Fort Ross Conservancy. She noted that it was a pleasure to deal with Russian museum representatives and organize joint projects. The program included a panel discussion coined “Towards each other: Russian trailblazers and American pioneers” - dedicated to the parallel nature of territory exploration in the history of Russia and America. “U.S.-Russia relations have great prospects as they are two major countries with common borders and areas of mutual interest. These not only include combating terrorism, but also space exploration, climate change, and energy-related issues,” stated Mikhail Shvydkoy, the Russian president’s special envoy on international cultural cooperation. Apart from culture, he says, there are many spheres where the countries’ interests meet. “In the end, pragmatism will prevail: We are two great nations,” he added. Welcome address by Mikhail Shvydkoy, Russian president’s special envoy on international cultural cooperation. / Mikhail Sinitsyn / RG Energy discussion Participants of the business conference segment analyzed opportunities for collaboration in the power industry segment with consideration of strained political relations and sanction regimes. Panelists included USRBC head Daniel Russel, the executive secretary of the Russian American Pacific Partnership Derek Norberg and Director of the RAS Institute for American and Canadian Studies Valery Garbuzov. “The Russian president repeatedly emphasized that we are absolutely open to cooperation along political and all other lines, but that such cooperation should be based on principles of fairness and mutual respect of interests”, noted Russia’s Deputy Minister of Foreign Affairs Sergey Ryabkov. He said that there were many issues on the Russia-U.S. agenda including counter-terrorism, regional conflicts, strategic stability, arms control, and the prevention of distribution of weapons of mass destruction. The conference program also included a presentation of a joint report prepared by the Russian International Affairs Council (RIAC) and Washington-based Center for Strategic and International Studies (CSIS) entitled “A Roadmap for U.S.-Russia Relations.” Specialists have elaborated a number of steps for their normalization and promised to provide them to Russian and U.S. delegations for preparations toward a possible meeting between presidents Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump during the July 2017 G20 summit in Germany.

Trump Tweeted About The Pulse Massacre And It Went Just As Well As You'd Expect

Donald Trump acknowledged the Pulse Massacre on Twitter Monday and users weren’t having any of it. The president’s tweet ― which he sent at 11:58 a.m. to mark one year after a gunman entered the Pulse nightclub in Orlando, Florida and murdered 49 people, most of them queer people of color ― read “We will NEVER FORGET the victims who lost their lives one year ago today in the horrific #PulseNightClub shooting. #OrlandoUnitedDay.” We will NEVER FORGET the victims who lost their lives one year ago today in the horrific #PulseNightClub shooting. #OrlandoUnitedDay pic.twitter.com/OFFUVAFBJM— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) June 12, 2017 Twitter users were quick to respond and call Trump out for a whole host of reasons. Some were still angry about the tweet he sent last year while a presidential candidate, which was deemed by some as a “humble brag” rather than a true show of concern for the victims or the LGBTQ community. You literally CONGRATULATED yourself on this day one year ago instead of remembering the victims.

And given how poorly you treat latinx Americans it's even more grotesque— Calvin (@calvinstowell) June 12, 2017 Some pointed out the lack of support that Trump has shown for the LGBTQ community, his decision to rescind President Barack Obama’s directive on trans rights and his choice of anti-queer Mike Pence as his vice president: this ALL CAPS tweet does not absolve u frm throwing the entire LGBTQ comm. under the bus after your election.

Words are 1 thing, actions another.— Maureen Tracy (@MaureenTracy2) June 12, 2017 Others called Trump out for failing to recognize June 2017 as Pride Month with an official White House proclamation ― something Obama did every year he was in office: A great way to honor them would be by actually acknowledging Pride month.— Alex Goldschmidt (@alexandergold) June 12, 2017 You forgot them all of pride month.
