TwitterFacebook

No surprise, Uber is facing some heat … a lot of it … for its toxic workplace culture.

But, the ride-hailing giant is working to make some changes. One of the first steps is releasing its diversity report. You can see all of it here

The company casually announced its ruthless decision on its social media platforms as though it wouldn’t crush anyone who has ever colored outside the lines or dared to dream. My gosh.

In American Gods, belief is power. 

In the new Starz series, based on the bestselling novel by Neil Gaiman, a war is brewing between the Old Gods and the New, with one unfortunate man, ex-con Shadow Moon (Ricky Whittle), caught in the middle. The traditional Old Gods, with mythological roots from around the world, fear irrelevance as their believers die off or are seduced by the shiny New Gods, like Media (Gillian Anderson) and Technical Boy (Bruce Langley), who represent our obsessions with technology, celebrity, money and pop culture.
