women in tech make 4 percent less than men in the same job


why it matters to you everyone deserves to make the same amount for the same job -- and gender, race, and sexuality shouldn't influence that.we live in the 21st century, and as such you would hope that gender, race, and sexuality doesn’t impact how much a person can make. unfortunately, however, it seems as though we still have a long way to go when it comes to pay equality.a recent study published by hired suggests that almost two in three women are paid a lower salary for the same job than their male counterparts. while that’s a little better than last year, when 69 percent of women were paid less compared to 63 percent this year, the figures show that there’s still a lot of work to be done.more: ‘oh! that memo.’ paypal plans gender equality program with all-male panelfor the study, hire

researchers know about some deadly storms early with system


researchers running highly detailed simulations using satellite images, radar and ground-based weather stations were able to predict a specific violent storm 90 minutes before it hit a western oklahoma town and killed a man two months ago.the national severe storms laboratory in norman, oklahoma, said friday the still-experimental forecast system could give emergency planners up to three hours' notice of upcoming bad weather. such notice is key for places where large crowds gather.for the storm may 16 in elk city, the researchers ran data through 36 simulations, tweaking data for each scenario. ahead of the elk city storm, many simulations predicted the supercell that produced a tornado.researchers said friday the computer modeling will need to be adjusted to predict storms in other parts
