According to numbers it released to the public Wednesday, the percentage of ethnic minorities and women at Facebook Inc. is in line with other big players in tech. But Maxine Williams, the company’s global head of diversity, says that not good enough. She said in a statement, “As these numbers show, we have more work to do–a lot more." According the data, Facebook’s global staff is comprised of 31% women and women serve in only 15% of the company’s tech jobs. The company only gave ethnicity figures for U.S. workers; just 7% of its workforce is black or Hispanic, while 57% of employees are white and 34% are Asian. In a statement, Facebook said it is working on ways to solve its diversity problem, including launching a strategic diversity team last year to increase hiring of underrepresented groups and that it’s seeing improved numbers.
Authorities said two young cousins who went missing during a family camping trip in the Daniel Boone National Forest in Kentucky were found safe on Friday afternoon after about 20 hours. Kentucky State Police Master Trooper Joe Veeneman said Michael Esposito, 5, and his cousin, Adrian Ross, 7, apparently wandered off on Thursday night while their families were setting up camp. More than 100 searchers including state police, the Wolfe County Search and Rescue Team and other first responders combed the Red River Gorge area where the boys had last been seen.

Jack is back and he's bringing company-wide layoffs with him. According a report late Friday from Re/code, Twitter is said to be planning to announce layoffs across most departments of the company next week. The precise number or percentage of staff affected is unclear. Speculation about the move comes just days after Twitter announced that cofounder Jack Dorsey would take over as the permanent CEO, following a lengthy search. Since officially taking over as permanent CEO this week, Dorsey and Twitter have moved fast to change the company's negative narrative on Wall Street, which has long punished the stock in the face of stalling user growth.
New research has revealed that what gets you high when you run isn’t morphine--it's actually closer to cannabis. Endorphins are naturally occurring brain chemicals. The name "endorphin" is a combination of endogenous (meaning “within”) and morphine. This week a collaborative study centered at the University of Heidelberg in Mannheim, Germany published a paper in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The paper explored how a different set of chemicals--the endocannabinoids-- are responsible for the production of a runner’s high, instead of endorphins.
Prosecutors in Brooklyn, New York, said on Friday two Beirut residents have been arrested on U.S. charges that they took part in an alleged scheme to help Hezbollah launder drug money, and to funnel thousands of weapons and military parts to criminal groups in Lebanon and Iran. Iman Kobeissi, 50, was arraigned in Brooklyn on Friday and held without bail, following her arrest a day earlier in Atlanta on charges of conspiring to commit money laundering and conspiring to deal in unlicensed firearms. The other defendant, Joseph Asmar, 42, was arrested in Paris on a U.S. warrant and charged with money laundering conspiracy.
