It cooled off to a sensible 105 degrees in Pleasanton on Sunday, which made wearing a woolen kilt downright comfortable, almost. Hundreds of men were wearing them, and thousands more were staring at the men who were. That seems to be one of the main things to do at the annual Scottish Highland Gathering and Games at the Pleasanton fairgrounds, in addition to having contests to see who can throw tree trunks, hammers and giant rocks the farthest. Kilts are big business at Scottish games. Booths sell ready-to-wear polyester kilts off the rack for $135 and proper made-to-order woolen kilts for $800 or so.

- Veeva Systems lawsuit challenges noncompete agreements
By Peter Blumberg and Sarah McBride - Tuesday Jul 18, 2017
Veeva Systems Inc., a target of lawsuits over hiring away employees from rivals in life sciences cloud computing, is now trying to turn the tables.In announcing its suit against three companies that have sought court orders to block ex-employees from joining Veeva or allegedly threatened litigation — Medidata Solutions Inc., Quintiles IMS Inc. and Sparta Systems Inc. — Veeva said it’s taking a stand to end a practice it views as anticompetitive.“Employees should have the right to move freely between jobs, advance their careers and improve their lives without fear of being sued by their former employers,” Veeva CEO Peter Gassner said in a statement.Medidata, based in New York City, said it supports and respects the rights of workers to build their careers, but it sued Veeva in January over the defection of five employees, challenging the Pleasanton company’s “illegal targeting and unfair use of our trade secrets.”Typically, a noncompete agreement — which many job candidates in the tech world have to sign as a condition of employment — bars them from working on rival products for a set period of time, say a year, after leaving their current employer.Supporters say they help protect trade secrets and other confidential information and prevent rapid turnover at companies that have made big investments to train employees.
