CNN fires host Rick Sanchez over controversial remarks

Filed under: news — Tags: , — sbmzhcn @ 10:21 am

CNN host Rick Sanchez came under fire Friday after making controversial remarks the previous day on a satellite radio show.

Sanchez called out Comedy Central host Jon Stewart as a "bigot" for mocking him, and complained that Jews — like Stewart — don’t face discrimination. He also suggested that CNN, and perhaps the media industry more broadly, is run by Jews and elitists who look down on Hispanics like himself.

Clearly, those comments didn’t sit well with the network, which put out a terse statement around 6 p.m. Friday.

"Rick Sanchez is no longer with the company," the CNN statement read. "We thank Rick for his years of service and we wish him well."

So far, Sanchez hasn’t spoken out about the explosive interview Thursday on "Stand Up! with Pete Dominick." On the radio show, the now-former CNN star didn’t just make a single impolitic statement, but spoke at length — for roughly 20 minutes — about Stewart and a media world he believes to be filled with "elite Northeast liberals" who consider Hispanic journalists "second tier." Sanchez is a Cuban-American.

He specifically called out Stewart as someone with "a white liberal establishment point-of-view" who "can’t relate to a guy like me." Also, Sanchez claimed that Stewart is "upset that someone of my ilk is at, almost, his level."

Sanchez also has yet to address the controversy via Twitter, where he is a frequent user. He even made the social media platform a signature part of his afternoon show, "Rick’s List." Sanchez didn’t appear on his 3 p.m. show on Friday, but CNN’s public relations department put out word that he was going to be at a book signing at the CNN Center in Atlanta. It’s unclear whether he attended it.

Sanchez joined CNN in 2004 after working as an anchor in Miami. Prior to that, Sanchez worked as a correspondent at MSNBC, providing breaking news updates at CNBC, and at other local stations.

CNN plans to air "CNN Newsroom" in the "Rick’s List" time slot, weekdays from 3 to 5 p.m.

Swanky new Vegas hotel’s ‘death ray’ proves inconvenient for some guests

And here you thought bedbugs were the biggest source of anxiety for hotel guests.image

Yes, guests at Vdara hotel in Las Vegas now have something else to worry about: being burned alive by the glare of the building’s "death ray."

What the heck’s a "death ray," you ask? Well, first off, it’s not as deadly as it sounds, since no one has actually died from it — at least not yet. But according to the U.K. Daily Mail, the powerful beams of Nevada sunlight reflecting off the glass hotel onto sections of the hotel’s swimming pool area have burned some guests and have melted plastic bags.

The building’s concave design creates a sort of magnifying-glass effect. The hotel’s designers reportedly anticipated that ill-situated humans might experience some discomfort courtesy of the building’s blinding glare, so they placed a film over the glass panes of its many windows. Obviously that didn’t quite do the trick. So for now the hotel is placing larger umbrellas in the pool area while designers try to come up with another remedy.

According to the Las Vegas Review-Journal, the hotel’s employees coined the term "death ray" to describe the intense reflection. Reports of the glare have also enhanced the hotel’s public profile, though almost certainly not in the way its owners would like; Yahoo! searches for Vdara have spiked by nearly 19,000 percent in the past 24 hours.

It turns out that Vdara isn’t the only building out there creating intense heat and glare for hapless passersby. Gordon Absher, a spokesman for MGM Resorts International, which owns Vdara, told the Review-Journal that in Las Vegas, the AdventureDome at Circus Circus and the Mandalay Bay produce "hot spots" that some guests have actually sought out, believing the spots will aid tanning regimens. In Los Angeles, the Frank Gehry-designed Walt Disney Concert Hall produced such a harsh glare that it heated nearby homes, forcing residents to blast their air conditioners high above their customary capacities in order for the residents to keep cool.

Bill Pintas, a Chicago attorney, told the Daily Mail that he experienced the harsh glare of the death ray firsthand during a recent Vdara stay. Pintas reported that as he lounged out by the pool, his head suffered a sensation he likened to a "chemical burn." He added, "Within 30 seconds, the back of my legs were burning."

In another interview, Pintas said: "I was effectively being cooked." Thankfully, he returned home alive. Still, his skin was burned and his hair was singed — disproving the old saying that whatever happens in Vegas stays in Vegas.

The Worst Mistake You Can Make On Your Resume

Filed under: Новости — Tags: , — sbmzhcn @ 10:10 am

Fact: Job hunters obsess about resumes. Who wouldn’t? There’s so much to get right–functional versus chronological, objective statements (pro and con), key words, templates, references, font size, white space, action verbs, employment gaps, placement and style of bullets, typos, and whether to include hobbies (probably a "no" on that last one).

So much, in fact, that we often forget the most important ingredient of a really great, interview-obtaining, new-job-snagging resume: It needs to be written specifically for the job you’re after.

Does that mean you have to do a new resume for every single position you apply for? Yes, that’s exactly what it means.

[See 21 Secrets to Getting the Job.]

Fear not, this is not as laborious as it sounds. You don’t have to start from scratch each time. All you need to do is edit–or refocus–your "master" resume to sync with the job in question. How?

–First, read and reread the job description. Study it. Ponder it. Identify the words and phrases the employer uses to describe the position.

–Next, take a look your work accomplishments, certifications, education, and experience. You should be keeping lists of all this stuff. This is the raw data you draw on to craft your resumes and cover letters, too.

–Then ask yourself which of your credentials can honestly be described using the same words and phrases the employer uses in the job description.

–Finally, take those words and phrases and use them to describe yourself in your resume. From this point, all you have to do is plug in info from your master resume. See, it’s not a total rewrite. In fact, most of your resume will stay the same. You’ll find that customizing your resume gets easier each time you do it.

A few more thoughts to consider:

–If you use a career objective at the top of the page, it should include the exact job title of the position you’re seeking.

–Remove experience/qualifications that have nothing to do with the job in question. You want to make it easy for employers to see the credentials they most care about.

–Try to figure out what credentials are of highest importance to the employer and put those first. Pretend you are in the employer’s shoes and ask yourself, "What’s my biggest need? What’s most important to me about this job?" Talk to your mentor and contacts in the field. Try to find people who are already doing the job you want and ask them, "What is the most important part of your job?"

–If your past job titles are ambiguous, overly jargony, or don’t obviously relate to the job you’re applying for, rephrase them in laymen’s terms–in a way that shows how those past jobs qualify you for this new job.

So, what’s the worst mistake you can make on your resume? Failing to customize. It’s a new employment market out there. A cookie-cutter resume just doesn’t cut it anymore. You need to show your potential employer that you’re applying for this job, not just any job. Good luck.
