Unions are successfully targeting workers in the technology industry, even as employees transition to a more remote workplace during the pandemic. Two principals in Jackson Lewis’ San Francisco office, Scott Jang and Laura Pierson-Scheinberg, provide their insights into the evolution of unionization in the tech space, how COVID-10 has affected unionizing activity by tech workers, warning signs of increasing organizing behavior, and what employers should do in response to organizing behavior.

UAPs and UFOs. What Do We Know? What Don’t We Know? – The Austin Forum Upload

Recent US government reports, videos, and interviews with credible witnesses (e.g. Navy pilots) have been released recently that discuss unidentified aerial phenomena (UAPs), sometimes referred to as UFOs (unidentified flying objects). Are they technology? Are they natural phenomena? How should we read and understand such reports and videos? Jay Boisseau and Jessica Sager interview Dr. J. Craig Wheeler, renowned astrophysicist (and also science fiction writer) about these reports and why we should be careful about assuming they are extraterrestrial, or even flying, or possibly event ‘objects,’ and how we might better pursue answers and understanding to determine what these UAPs are.
