Cosby lawyers ask to exclude his testimony on other women

  Cosby lawyers ask to exclude his testimony on other women Bill Cosby's lawyers want to prevent jurors at his Pennsylvania sex assault trial from hearing his lurid deposition testimony about giving pills and alcohol to a string of women before sex. The 79-year-old comedian is accused of drugging and molesting former Temple University employee Andrea Constand in 2004. He has said the sexual contact was consensual.

In Houston, Hispanic women earn around 53% of what white men make. Out of the 25 metros, the narrowest gender wage gap overall is in Los Angeles Black and Hispanic women are most affected by the wage gap, especially when compared to white men, who make up the largest demographic

Tui Airways - where men earn 47% more than women - has the same issue. Many banks also appear to have a gender bias on salaries. "I don't see a reluctance," she told the Today programme. "I think this is genuinely quite difficult data to find, it is often sitting on different systems and firms are working

It’s that time of year again: Democrats, the media and modern outrage feminists insist that women make less than men and insinuate sexism is to blame.

That should strike people as false from the start. Those who contend the “gender wage gap” is more accurately a “gender earnings gap” like to point out that if there really was some unspoken rule in business that women could be hired for 20 percent less than men, then men wouldn’t get hired so easily. What business owner would hire a man when he or she could hire a woman for so much less?

Women get the short end of the stick in most cases. Men will use us to prove their worth socially… It is only fair we get to do the same because society looks Why should I take a social blow for a short man when they rarely take social blows being with an ugly woman ? They want to judge us on dating sites

Most men care if women earn more , but times are changing. Today we 'll give you some pointers if The first reason is because people are still frequently judged by the amount of money they make. Part of that might be because as women earn more , they tend to take on a larger responsibility in

I’ve seen that question asked numerous times, but have yet to see anyone attempt to answer it.

Let’s look at the facts that contribute to women earning less than men. For starters, the Bureau of Labor Statistics uses the median earnings of men and women to come up with the gap. Sometimes politicians and the media (I’ve been guilty of this before), claim the gap is due to the differences in what the average man and woman earn.

But the most important factor that determines how much each sex earns is occupation. Men tend to take higher-paying jobs that may be more dangerous (men account for virtually all workplace deaths) and require longer hours. In a 2015 fact check for The Washington Post, Glenn Kessler provided two lists from a Georgetown University survey that showed the 10 highest-earning college majors compared to the 10 lowest-earning.

  Henley rallies to win Houston Open, earn trip to Masters Russell Henley made 10 birdies in the final round and closed with a 7-under 65 to win the Shell Houston Open and earn the final spot in the Masters. Henley started the final round four shots behind and caught up to Sung Kang with five birdies in eighth holes. Henley fell back with a double bogey from the bunker on the par-3 ninth.RELATED:  SHELL HOUSTON LEADERBOARDThey were tied with six holes to play when Henley ran off three straight birdies with two short putts on par 5s and a 35-foot putt on the par-3 14th.

Meet the women who earn more . There’s a reversal of traditional roles taking place in the UK.

Nine of the top 10 highest-earning majors were dominated by men (the second highest-earning, pharmaceutical sciences and administration, were slightly dominated by women, at 52 percent). Nine of the top 10 lowest-earning majors were dominated by women (women made up just 34 percent of theology and religious vocation majors and 55 percent of health and medical preparatory programs).

Now, many who perpetuate the “wage gap” claim will insist that society—or the patriarchy—push women into lower-paying jobs. I understand the argument, but I think it removes women’s agency. Perhaps there really are differences in men and women and the things they want in life, and women are actually gravitating toward the jobs they want to do and/or provide them the work-life balance they want.

College major and eventual occupation (not everyone who goes to law school becomes a lawyer) are not the only factors that contribute to the gap. Women tend to take time off after having a child. I’m not talking about a few weeks or months (if your employer is generous) for maternity leave. That might be a factor in some workplaces.

Bill Cosby’s 2004 Rape Trial Expected To Last Two Weeks; Faces Decade Behind Bars

  Bill Cosby’s 2004 Rape Trial Expected To Last Two Weeks; Faces Decade Behind Bars Bill Cosby's June 5 starting trial that could see him behind bars for up to a decade for the alleged 2004 sexual assault of a then-Temple University employee is expected to last about two weeks, a Pennsylvania judge announced today.

Where women have a rough idea of how much their men earn , details about how much they make from their so-called side hustle remain a well-guarded secret. Peter, a journalist says, rather point blank: “Things such as salary increment, bonuses and dividends are not things you tell a wife, especially if

Millennial households are earning more money than ever before—here's why it may not be enough. And "the median earnings of women working full time for a full year (in households headed by "Young people entering the workforce today are far less likely to earn more than their parents when

I’m talking about taking years off to raise children. Many women have children and decide to leave the workforce to care for them. Proponents of the “wage gap” claim will say society pushes women into the caregiving role. Sure, but many women want to do this (and many women may want to but can’t due to single-parent status or the need for two incomes)—and it’s their choice.

The flip side of the argument that women are pushed into caregiving roles is that men are pushed out of those roles. Studies have shown that men earn more after having a child while women earn less. That doesn’t suggest that employers find out a man had a child and instantly give him a raise for it, but rather, men are forced to work harder, for longer hours, or take better jobs in order to provide for their family. Men are essentially told that their money is worth more than their parenting, while women are told the opposite.

Maybe there are men who would like to stay home with their children after they’re born. In rare cases this happens, while the woman remains working. That’s a discussion for parents, but “stay-at-home-dads” are still frowned upon in society. That should change. To be sure, many modern outrage feminists look down on stay-at-home moms as well.

Here's Everything You Need to Know About Equal Pay Day

  Here's Everything You Need to Know About Equal Pay Day Equal Pay Day is meant to raise awareness of the discrepancy between men's and women's wages.Equal Pay Day was started by the National Committee on Pay Equity (NCPE) in 1996 to highlight the gap between men and women's wages. Equal Pay Day is held every April to symbolize how far into the year women need to work to make what men did in the previous year, according to the NCPE. It is always on Tuesday to "represent how far into the next work week women must work to earn what men earned the previous week." In other words, because women earn less on average, they must work longer for the same pay.

Federal judges have the option to enroll in insurance plans through the Federal Employee Health Benefits system, whose website claims it offers "the widest selection of health Don't miss: Paul Ryan could get a pension of ,930 a year—here's how that compares to most Americans. Like this story?

Judge and his colleague concluded that someone who is 7 inches taller — for example, 6 feet versus 5 feet 5 inches — would be expected to earn Height was found to be more important than gender in determining income (though that claim is debatable, depending on how you analyze the gender salary

Which brings me to my larger point: Why do we care so much what people make? Why are women being valued solely by their income, when so many non-income-related things make a person valuable to society? Things like volunteer work, charity and, of course, raising the next generation should be considered. We shouldn’t be telling anyone that they are only as good as the money they earn.

Again, proponents of the “wage gap” would say this is about sexism and women being treated unequally in the workplace. The gap statistics don’t prove this, because the median earnings of men and women don’t offer an apples-to-apples comparison, as I’ve discussed above. When things like education, experience and occupation are accounted for, the gap virtually disappears.

Further, the remaining 5- to 7-cent gap can’t conclusively be linked to discrimination, as American Association of University Women spokeswoman Lisa Maatz admitted. She was discussing a misleading study from her organization that claimed women earn less than men right out of college. As I stated earlier, this gap would be due to the different majors and occupations women take compared to men.

A study from 2008 (which has not been updated) found that young, childless women in metropolitan areas actually had median earnings higher than those of their male peers. The reason for this was simple: Women are far more likely to attend and graduate from college.

Because of this, the gap may close a lot faster than many claim. The small gap that remains after comparing men and women with similar experience and jobs can’t conclusively be linked to discrimination. One factor that is difficult to quantify is how good someone is at their job. I don’t think men are inherently better at their jobs than women, but in some cases women might be better and in others men might be better.

There are probably other factors at play as well that haven’t been considered, and we must acknowledge that there are likely some examples of actual sexism in the workplace, as Harvard economist Claudia Goldin acknowledged. But her main point is that men and women are different, and those differences lead to different earnings.

Ginsburg refers to Graham as one of 'the women of the Senate' .
Ruth Bader Ginsburg appears to have been caught up in a gender-swapping snafu, mistakenly dubbing Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) one of the "women of the Senate."The 84-year-old Supreme Court justice delivered remarks at Allegheny College in Pennsylvania on Monday as she accepted the Prize for Civility in Public Life, honoring her and late Justice Antonin Scalia.
