15, 2015, analysis in the New York Times, for example, an economist who studies racial discrimination found that blacks were two-and-a-half times more likely to be the victims of police shootings than whites. Just under one-third, or 31.8 percent, of shooting-death victims nationwide were African-American, according to the article, although blacks make up just 13 percent of the population. Historically, police killings of civilians have not been reliably tracked by the FBI or other federal agencies. The Washington Post is among news organizations that have stepped into the breach. For the past two years, the Post has tracked fatal police shootings nationwide. http://lovetylerward.universitypunjabi.org/2016/08/04/practical-advice-on-establishing-root-criteria-in-career/The Post data shows that 990 people of all races (the vast majority men) were killed by police last year, and 537 have been killed so far in 2016. About a quarter of those killed each year were African-American, significantly higher than their share of the population, while about half were white, substantially lower than their population share of 72 percent. The majority of these deaths involved civilians armed with lethal weapons, according to the Posts data. But in 2015, the Post counted 93 deaths of unarmed civilians and 34 deaths involving toy weapons. This year so far, there have been 35 unarmed deaths and 23 involving toy weapons.

Do you want some effective tips that can help you in getting through the interview?

The person may also refuse or avoid eye contact, if he/she is trying to hide something. ~ Sometimes, a person may hide their negative emotions behind the mask of a smiling face.

On August 1, Massachusetts passed an equal-pay law that prohibits employers from asking about salary histories until they make a job offer that includes compensation, unless the applicants voluntarily provide the information, ThinkProgress reported . Massachusetts is the first state to ban employers from inquiring about salary histories. As ThinkProgress noted, asking candidates for their salary histories may reinforce the gender wage gap. Women generally earn less than men, and when they disclose their salary, the prospective employer may base their new salary on their previous one. The passage of the law is heartening news for those interviewing in Massachusetts as for the rest of us, there are ways to dodge the salary question artfully. In an episode of “The Tim Ferriss Show” podcast , bestselling personal-finance writer Ramit Sethi gave some advice on how to avoid giving a direct answer. If you’re in a job interview and a hiring manager asks you how much you make or how much you’re looking for, Sethi says, say something like, “You know what, I’m happy to discuss money down the road, but right now I’m just trying to see if there’s a good fit for both of us. I’m sure you’re trying to do the same thing.” Sethi says this communicates confidence to the interviewer and can suggest that you have multiple offers on the table. His advice is to hold off on salary negotiations until the hiring manager comes at you with a job offer, but you may run into an interviewer who will keep pushing until they get an answer.
