The 1980’s film “9 to 5,” highlighted the sexism and gender inequality that dominated the American workplace culture, and there’s going to be a sequel.

Tech Tuesday: Political Disinformation

10/15/2019
More
Democratic presidential hopeful Elizabeth Warren has rekindled her feud with Big Tech — this time calling out Facebook for political disformation.

Weekly Reporter Roundtable

10/14/2019
More
When Gov. Mike DeWine addressed a Dayton crowd two days after a mass shooting in August, the crowd asked him to just "do something." He responded with a proposal for universal background checks on gun sales and a version of the "red flag" law. The governor last week retreated from both promises, saying that he has a superior plan that would expand the state’s pink slip system, hospitalizing certain people deemed at risk for violence for up to three days, and a way to make it easier to...

Gun Control In Ohio

Governor Mike DeWine in August -- and just days after a mass shooting in Dayton -- proposed the outline of a plan for mandatory background checks on private gun sales and a version of the so-called “red flag” law. On Monday, DeWine retreated from both proposals. Instead, he proposed expanding the state’s “pink slip” system that hospitalizes people who are mentally ill for up to three days. And he proposed a plan to make it easier to prosecute the gun sellers. Today on All Sides with Ann...

Sewage overflow is an issue in the U.S. The EPA estimates that each year as many as 75,000 sanitary sewers overflow across the country, dumping untold gallons of untreated sewage into U.S. Waterways. The City of Columbus in 2005 adopted a plan to address the overflow by expanding the size of the sewers. A decade later, the city changed course, deciding instead to reduce the amount of storm water before it reaches the sewers. Rain gardens play a big role. Today on All Sides with Ann Fisher:...
