Dear Friend:

Thank you for writing to me to express your views on Trade Promotion Authority (TPA), otherwise known as “fast-track.”  I appreciate hearing from you on this important issue.

Recently, I voted against TPA because it prevents Congress from amending trade agreements, including the Trans Pacific Partnership, in order to protect American workers, the environment, and public health.

Today, the middle class is still struggling with the legacy of NAFTA – the last major trade agreement Congress approved.  As a result of that trade deal, middle class families saw their jobs outsourced and their wages pushed down, all while the top 10 percent grew wealthier.  At a time of stagnant wages, we should focus on strengthening our middle class – not “fast-tracking” a trade agreement that repeats mistakes of the past.

Instead of passing risky trade agreements that endanger middle class families, now is the time to put those families first.  We should start by immediately raising the minimum wage, passing comprehensive immigration reform, investing in our infrastructure, making college more affordable, ensuring equal pay for women, and fighting for a level playing field for American businesses and workers.

Again, thank you for writing to me.  Please feel free to contact me again about this or other issues of concern to you.

Sincerely,

Barbara Boxer
United States Senator

(Phys.org)—For many Americans, the single biggest problem facing the country is the growing wealth inequality. Based on income tax data, wealth inequality in the US has steadily increased since the mid-1980s, with the top 10% of the population currently owning about 73% of the country's wealth. In a new paper published in PLOS ONE, researchers have quantitatively analyzed several of the major factors that affect wealth inequality dynamics, and fo...

Researchers have created a new "plasmonic oxide material" that could make possible devices for optical communications that are at least 10 times faster than conventional technologies.

Nice, if this works out, since it's almost purely optical, and optical transistors can be made with it; I wonder if it can be adapted to build a fully optical computer processor?

Management basics are not common knowledge and most people promoted into a management position find themselves needing an entirely new set of skills.
If you don't like your manager, it's probably not you, and there is a good chance your boss should never have been promoted in the first place.
