  • How to Tell Your Salaried Employees They Are Now Hourly

    Some of your salaried employees are about to become hourly employees, and there's nothing you can do to stop it. Starting on December 1, 2016, the minimum salary needed to qualify for a salary exemption will jump from $455 a week ($23,660 per year) to $913 per week ($47,476 per year). If you have employees who are currently exempt from overtime who earn less than $47,476 per year, you'll have to change the way they are paid. How should you tell your employees? Some of them won't take it very well. You should have managers sit down, one on one, to deliver the news. But, you'll also want to follow up with written communication.

  • Woman Charged After Man With Maggot-Filled Foot Wounds Dies

    A former Pennsylvania caregiver has been charged with homicide after authorities say she failed to properly treat a man with a congenital defect who died after his foot wounds became severely infected and filled with maggots. The state attorney general's office says 43-year-old Stacey Ann Cunnius of Reading neglected the care of Jessie McCrimmon, who had spina bifida. Prosecutors say McCrimmon died last year because he didn't receive proper care and "endured considerable pain." Investigators say McCrimmon was missing toes on one foot and had bone exposed. The other was being held on by necrotic flesh. Cunnius also faces charges including Medicaid fraud, neglect of a care-dependent person and

  • Angry grizzly bear charges couple twice; what they did possibly saved their lives

    John and Lisa Vandenbos were scouting for fishing spots along the Lamar River in Yellowstone National Park on Saturday when they spotted an adult grizzly bear feeding on a partially consumed carcass. The grizzly bear was obviously surprised and was in no mood to share in its bounty, so it immediately charged the couple, coming to within 9 feet, according to Yellowstone National Park spokeswoman Morgan Warthin. Fortunately, the couple from Bozeman, Montana, were prepared and both quickly discharged their bear spray. “The bear initially left,” Warthin wrote. “When attempting to charge the couple again, it ran into the original cloud of bear spray.

  • Miley Cyrus confirms engagement, admits ring is not her 'aesthetic'

    Miley Cyrus cleared up the rumors about her engagement ring on "The Ellen DeGeneres Show" on Thursday when she returned to the show after recently hosting it in Ellen's absence. When the host asked "The Voice" coach about her bling, Cyrus said, "It's very weird because this is, like, real jewelry and most of my jewelry is made out of like gummy bears and cotton candy and they don't look that good together because they kind of mix up. So sometimes I replace it with an actual unicorn or a Looney Tune. And he's like, 'What's going on?' And I'm like, 'Well, this isn't my aesthetic, but I'll wear it 'cause you love me.'"

  • 9 Foundations for Dark Skin Tones to Upgrade Your Fall Makeup (9 photos)

    If you ask most women with deeper complexions, including myself, how easy it is to select foundation to complement their skin tone, there is good chance her answer will be “It can be quite the task” or “The struggle is real.” But just because it is not as easy to pick a foundation shade as it may be to figure out exactly how you like your coffee in the morning does not mean finding the perfect match is impossible. There are actually more companies today that have made strides toward developing darker foundations . So much that there are even unique technologies such as the MATCHCo smartphone app, which works to virtually help women find their exact shades. Many brands have extended their lines with more hues to choose from, yet there are instances where the actual formulations could still use some tweaking . Could it be that these deep colors are simply that much more difficult to make? With about 30 years of experience in creating shades, Victor Casale, the co-founder and chief innovation officer of Cover FX as well as the former founding partner, chief chemist, and managing director of MAC Cosmetics , explains it is less about crafting the formulation correctly and more about finding the right testers. “The most difficult thing when I’m formulating dark shades is finding models and skin tones that I can bring into the lab to verify the shades. But I have done that. I’ve set up color verification labs in universities and colleges where I send my team.” He also points out how diverse the shade range can be within deeper skin tones. “There’s a new shade born every day,” he says. While experts agree that it isn’t necessarily a costlier undertaking to create darker shades, it is more about getting the most precise pigments in order to formulate the best colors that will sell and fly off shelves fast because they actually match. With a better understanding of how deeper shades are created, Yahoo Beauty swatched and tested nine of the best foundations for dark skin. Have you tried any? Tell us in the comments section.

  • Hacked memo reinforces worst perception of the Clintons

    It's possible that this Clinton Foundation memo -- uncovered by the WikiLeaks dump of hacked emails -- is already baked into the cake of this presidential race. Per the Washington Post, "When top Bill Clinton aide Douglas Band wrote the memo, he was a central player at the Clinton Foundation and president of his own corporate consulting firm. Over the course of 13 pages, he made a case that his multiple roles had served the interests of the Clinton family and its charity. In doing so, Band also detailed a circle of enrichment in which he raised money for the Clinton Foundation from top-tier corporations such as Dow Chemical and Coca-Cola that were clients of his firm, Teneo, while pressing many of those same donors to provide personal income to the former president." More: "The memo … lays out the aggressive strategy behind lining up the consulting contracts and paid speaking engagements for Bill Clinton that added tens of millions of dollars to the family's fortune, including during the years that Hillary Clinton led the State Department.

He told the Herald and News that at first he thought it could be an otter. “What caught my attention was how big of a wake it was leaving and how fast it was moving,” Ross told the newspaper. Ross noticed Gerald Holt flying his drone nearby and asked him if he could capture aerial footage of the swimming animal, which was out quite a ways. Holt obliged and sent his drone out over Upper Klamath Lake where he caught up with the animal and began filming. “I was really conscious to stay away from it, not to harm

A serious Harry Potter fan has developed a new theory around Snape's opening line in Harry Potter and the Philosopher's Stone. In the film, Snape, played by the late Alan Rickman, asks Harry, 'Tell me, what would I get if I added powdered root of asphodel to an infusion of wormwood?' While the complexity behind the Potions question went completely over our heads, it turns out that it was very important to the story.

I am certain many of the Hall’s members and voters mean well, and I have heard nice things about their museum (which I have not visited). But the Hall, as it exists now, is so deeply flawed that it risks not only having a lack of credibility, but also a lack of validity. In other words, it doesn’t just make mistakes; the mistakes seem to be endemic, built into the fabric of the organization. And you know what? Rock ’n roll deserves better.
