    Tags: Jobs & the Economy

    Experts may debate the necessity of cyberinsurance, but smaller businesses are starting to buy these policies, which were once limited to large companies like Equifax. But there are many important differences between large and smaller companies when it comes to cyberinsurance needs. Large corporations are more likely to be targeted in hacks, buy coverage directly from insurers, and have their own legal, public relations, and technology expertise. Smaller companies are becoming cyberinsurance buy... Read more

    Eight months into the Trump administration, a slate of top federal jobs in Colorado and the West remains unfilled — a hiring delay that touches everything from the environment to criminal justice and one which local leaders and activists said hampers their ability to work with the White House. Full-time administrators have yet to be installed in the Colorado regional offices of the Environmental Protection Agency, Federal Emergency Management Agency, Department of Housing and Urban Development a...

    WASHINGTON — Fifty years ago, U.S. Army Captain Steve Yedinak returned home from Vietnam believing that he had led covert operations that contributed significantly to the U.S. efforts to counter communist infiltration from the North into South Vietnam. Yedinak, now 77, left behind more than 200 local troops who had fought alongside U.S. forces. Ethnic Cambodians living in South Vietnam, the Khmer Krom of Task Force 957, Mobile Guerrilla Force (MGF), were “fun to be with,” he recalls, “and they w... Read more

    If confirmed, Jim Bridenstine would be the first NASA administrator in the post-Apollo era who wasn’t yet born when Neil Armstrong walked on the moon. He’s a politician and a Navy aviator, not a rocket scientist, whose credentials have already been criticized by two prominent Florida senators. And the congressman's comments expressing skepticism about the role humans have played in climate change have sparked controversy. But in the days since President Trump announced that Bridenstine was his p... Read more

    As with many aspects of following Donald Trump’s plans and decisions, when it comes to official U.S. policy toward young immigrants brought here illegally by their parents, whiplash is expected. It was only June when the president’s administration said it would keep a program that protects roughly 800,000 young immigrants, known as Dreamers, from deportation. But now news comes that Trump could unwind the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program, or DACA, which could affect about 30,000 im... Read more

    Monday was the day of the obligatory eclipse-glasses selfie — or so we thought. By now we all know that a certain politician didn’t wear his protective glasses while looking at the eclipse — at least not at first. Not to worry — BuzzFeed reports that POTUS was handed glasses to wear for the remainder of his eclipse-viewing experience, as evidenced by FLOTUS’ tweet. Trump wasn’t the only politician donning ultra-cool shades today. So were many a Colorado politico — Republicans and Democrats alike... Read more

Public interest groups and a labor union sued the government to block enforcement of the policy, saying it overstepped Trump's constitutional authority. Judge Randolph Moss's comments during a hearing last week in U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia hinted at some agreement with arguments from attorneys for Public Citizen, the Natural...
