Ellen Pao Loses Silicon Valley Gender Bias Case Against Kleiner Perkins 309

vivaoporto writes As reported by the New York Times, USA Today and other publications, a jury of six men and six women rejected current Reddit Inc CEO Ellen Pao's claims against her former employer, the venture capital firm Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers. Ms. Pao's suit, that alleged employment discrimination based on gender, workplace retaliation and failure to take reasonable steps to prevent gender discrimination, asked $16 million in compensatory damages plus punitive damages. The jury decided, after more than two days of deliberation and more than four weeks of testimony, that her formed employer neither discriminated against the former junior partner for her gender, nor fired the complainant because of a high-profile gender discrimination lawsuit against the firm in 2012. She alleged that Kleiner Perkins had promoted male partners over equally qualified women at the firm, including herself, and then retaliated against her for raising concerns about the firm's gender dynamics by failing to promote her and finally firing her after seven years at the firm after she filed her 2012 lawsuit.

Comment: and there cable tv sucks! even next to other cable (Score 1) 536

and there cable tv sucks! even next to other cable systems. It's said then there premium HD line is just about 1-2 HD feeds per pack. Even other cable systems in smaller ares have 3-5+ Feeds per premium pack.

Channel map is a big mess.

Most areas no FOX sports 2 HD

WGN America SD only in Chicago land added in 2014!

no CLTV HD (rcn has it)


epl extra time on Comcast is a VOD only mess for live events when other systems have it as real part time channels.

They don't even have all in market feeds of there OWN RSN in HD. CSN CHICAGO + 2 HD is only on DIrectv and u-verse.

No big ten alts in HD

No pac12 HD (out of market areas)

Out of market sports packs at best 1-2 HD channels

True; I live far away from an Amazon warehouse so I won't have to worry about the laid off workers robbing me for money / food / shelter.

they should rob CEO of Amazon or some GOV people and they be willing to go to jail / prison where the state will pick up the tab for food and shelter + a doctor that covers more then the ER.
