- Buzzword or not, AI is now a thing in corporate earnings calls
By Kevin Kelleher - Thursday Sep 7, 2017
In quarterly calls to discuss earnings with Wall Street, executives’ curated comments fall into two categories: information they are required by the SEC to divulge and things they think investors want to hear. Aggregating trending topics from those calls, however, offers a glimpse into what’s on corporate managers’ minds. It was for this reason consulting […]

- Trump tweets that transgender people can’t serve in military
Wednesday Jul 26, 2017
President Trump set off a bipartisan firestorm Wednesday morning by tweeting that the government will not allow transgender people to serve in the military “in any capacity.”In a series of early morning tweets, Trump wrote, After consultation with my Generals and military experts, please be advised that the United States Government will not accept or allow Transgender individuals to serve in any capacity in the U.S. Military.Republicans also expressed disappointment and outrage at Trump for posting policy decisions on social media.Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), who also serves as the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee, called Trump’s statement unclear and promised that the committee would conduct oversight on the issue of transgender people serving in the military.In a White House press briefing later that day, Sarah Huckabee, the White House press secretary, said that the announcement was “something that the Department of Defense and the White House iwll have to work together on as implementation takes place.”Rep. Scott Peters (D-San Diego) filed an amendment to the Department of Defense Appropriations bill to block Trump’s decision to ban transgender people from entering the military service.The amendment states that government funds for defense can’t be used to “implement, enforce, or observe any directive” from the president that “bars or restricts the ability of transgender persons to serve in the Armed Forces.”The order, signed by Truman on July 26, 1948, stated, “It is hereby declared to be the policy of the President that there shall be equality of treatment and opportunity for all persons in the armed services without regard to race, color, religion, or national origin.”The RAND Corporation, a nonprofit research group, found that the costs of gender-transition related to health care treatment is “relatively low.”The total cost of medical care for transgender troops would increase health care costs by between $2.4 million and $8.4 million annually, representing a 0.04- to 0.13-percent increase in health care expenditures.Transgender reassignment surgery — which not every trans person chooses to undergo — can cost anywhere from a few thousand dollars per person to nearly $100,000, depending on how extensive it ias, according to Courtney D’Allaird, founding coordinator for the Genderal and Sexuality Resource Center at the University of Albany, N.Y.“Weren’t we just last year christening the Harvey Milk vessel in the Navy?” D’Allaird said, referring to the 2016 announcement that a Navy supply vessel is being named after the gay rights pioneer of San Francisco.Aaron Belkin, director of the Palm Center, a public policy think tank at UC Santa Barbara, said Trump’s announcement would cause discrimination and ultimately harms military readiness.In June 2016, former Secretary of Defense Ash Carter announced that transgender individuals would be able to serve in the U.S. armed forces.In June, Gen. James Mattis, Trump’s defense secretary, delayed Carter’s plan to accept transgender troops and to accommodate transgender service members’ medical needs by six months.In February, Trump rescinded federal protections that were implemented for transgender students, allowing them to use bathrooms that coincided with their gender identity.Trump’s tweeted announcement comes about a year after he pledged in his acceptance speech at the Republican National Convention to protect the rights LGBTQ people.
- Auditor to study alleged ethics offenses by Oakland councilwoman
By Michael Bodley - Tuesday Aug 1, 2017
For hours on end, not one of the dozens of people at a special meeting of Oakland’s Public Ethics Commission at City Hall on Monday evening seemed able to discern what Councilwoman Lynette Gibson McElhaney may have done wrong, and why.The dysfunction of the meeting — run by a staff of six political novices who at times lacked an understanding of procedural rules — came to a head when McElhaney’s hired San Francisco lawyer, Jim Sutton, told the commissioners that his client admitted that she was at fault in a series of allegations revolving around pressuring the city Planning Commission to halt construction on five town house units adjacent to her West Oakland home.McElhaney failed to report the assistance as a gift to a public official, and meanwhile took part in council votes to extend and expand JRDV’s city contracts, the staff report said.The ethics commission’s investigation follows a June 2016 Alameda County grand jury finding that McElhaney, then the president of the City Council, had a “material financial interest” in the development planned next to her home, in part because of its location.On the table on Monday night were fining McElhaney about $800, a metric the staff report estimated that JDRV’s consultation was worth, a sum that would have been repaid to the company; fining her a maximum of $15,000; or issuing her a reprimand letter.The ethics commission will revisit the matter in one month, he said, adding that the councilwoman would be open to accepting a settlement she would deem fare, including repaying JDRV for the “gift,” acknowledging receipt of a warning letter or creating a video warning other Oakland government officials about how ethics rules and laws work.
