The newest – and grossest – employee perk? Shoeless offices | Gene Marks
Taking off your shoes in public is becoming a new employee perk among startups and other young Silicon Valley firms – but is it a health violation?Don’t you hate it when you’re on a plane and the guy sitting next to you takes off his shoes? Gross. Unfortunately, it seems to happen all too often. In fact, taking off your shoes in public is not only becoming more common, it’s becoming a new employee perk among startups and other young firms in Silicon Valley.When I graduated college and went to a work for a big accounting firm, suits and ties were required every day. I am definitely showing my age. That’s because, according to a report from Business Insider, more and more firms are letting their employees walk around their offices shoeless – even (double-gross) sockless – in order to create a more comfortable work environment for those young and fickle workers who they’re looking to attract.

The Bikes of Wrath review – cyclists take the dustbowl migrants' road
Five friends with limited experience in the saddle ride 2,600 miles across the US in an endearingly honest documentaryAs bike touring booms, we’ve seen a trickle of documentaries by cyclists filming their adventures on helmet cameras. This one, from Australian director Cameron Ford, is slicker than most. In 2015, Ford and four mates cycled 2,600 miles in 30 days across America in the footsteps of John Steinbeck’s Grapes of Wrath, following the route of dustbowl migrants searching for a better life. The five men travelled on a budget of $420, the equivalent of the $18 an average depression-era family had to get them to California. This creates the slightly queasy sight of affluent guys in expensive Patagonia T-shirts slumming it and relying on the kindness of strangers – some of whom are themselves clearly only just scraping by on low incomes.

Johnson’s casual misogyny has kept women out of the election campaign | Zoe Williams
The macho imagery has been all diggers and oven-ready Brexits. There’s no room for female Tories to get a look-inDoes Boris Johnson have a problem with women? The Conservative campaign has certainly been very male: Matt Hancock and Michael Gove the most prominent voices besides the prime minister. Liz Truss ranking 65th among media presence of cabinet and shadow cabinet ministers, with a mere 0.2% of appearances.In the interests of fair-mindedness, it should be pointed out that all female Conservatives who are halfway decent – in the sense of stringing effective sentences together that aren’t composed mainly of lies – have left the party. Amber Rudd, Anna Soubry, Nicky Morgan, Justine Greening, all supposedly the faces of the new, caring Cameroonianism, all gone. You could say that to lose a couple was natural wastage, but to lose them all signals that the party had taken a masculinist turn that its female futures couldn’t support. You could say that if the prime minister had any serious commitment to gender diversity, he would have worked harder to keep them, maybe even to the point of brooking some ideological compromises. What you can’t say is that he has a rich pool of female talent in his cabinet to draw from that he’s ignoring. I cannot call it misogyny to keep Priti “52 extra murders a year under Jeremy Corbyn” Patel out of the dead centre of the limelight. The longer she speaks, the greater the risk of her doing a Jacob Rees-Mogg. Continue reading...
