The argument against having close friends at work
Given the amount of time we spend at work, relationships are bound to form.
And that's a good thing. Having friends at work can increase job satisfaction, performance and productivity, research shows.
But you might want to avoid becoming too close with your colleagues.
"You don't need to be best buds," said Amy Cooper Hakim, an industrial-organizational psychology practitioner and workplace expert. "You want to be kind, professional and nice. But we don't need to tell every person at work our deep dark secrets, and long-term goals and dreams."

Black Doctor Repeatedly Questioned About Credentials on Delta Flight While Trying To Help Ill Passenger
A doctor who helped a passenger on a Delta flight Tuesday said she believes flight attendants who repeatedly questioned her credentials even after she showed them her medical license did so because she is a black woman.
Dr. Fatima Cody Stanford was on a Delta flight from Indianapolis to Boston when the woman next to her started hyperventilating, according to NBC News. When Stanford started to help the passenger, a flight attendant came up to ask her if she was a medical doctor. She showed the woman her license without being asked because, she told the New York Times, she knows she “doesn’t look the part.” Stanford, a doctor at Massachusetts General Hospital and an instructor at Harvard Medical school, said she carries a wallet-sized version of the license at all times for that reason.

Will Any Music Awards Show Get Representation For Women Right? None Have Yet.
On last night’s American Music Awards (AMAs), Taylor Swift doubled down on her voter registration message, Ciara and Missy Elliott leveled up, and Aretha Franklin finally got the tribute she deserved. Women were at the forefront of the show, which was a vast step forward from their massive under representation at the Grammys or the MTV VMAs and the number of awards they won was a step up from their Billboard Music Awards treatment. The AMAS did the best job representing women as performers and winners of any music awards show this year. They also showed us how far music has to go to fix its #MeToo and representation issues.
But digging a little deeper, the AMAs also highlight some serious areas that need work. First and foremost, let’s talk about the late XXXTentacion being nominated for two awards, and winning one that was broadcast in the show. Imagine the Golden Globes nominating Roman Polanski (or Woody Allen, or Kevin Spacey, or any number of high profile men accused of sexual misconduct) for an award this year, of all years. Imagine them giving it to him on television. And imagine that later on, when a woman nominated against him lauds his work, saying she’s a fan and it’s an honor to be in the same category as him. That’s essentially what happened with XXX’s win, and Camila Cabello’s subsequent lauding of him in her Best New Artist acceptance speech. XXX, who passed away earlier this year, may have been a talented artist and undoubtedly has legions of fans. But he is also accused of violent, disturbing abuse against a woman. We don’t have to celebrate abusers at our awards show, and to do so only tells women that their pain is not important. It was an especially bitter pill to swallow after weeks of the Kavanaugh confirmation battle. Music seems to think it can continue to exist in a bubble where #MeToo and support for the survivors of abuse are negligible.

Insufferable gay Trump supporter hurls racial slurs at Lyft driver, refuses to leave vehicle
Shawn Pepas Lettman is a Lyft driver and father of two from Brooklyn. Last weekend, he found himself the target of a racist attack by gay Trump supporter who refused to get out of his car.
It all started when a passenger leaving a gay club requested Lettman change the music in his car. Lettman declined the request and the passenger became irate, prompting Lettman to pull over.
In the video, the passenger can be seen screaming into his phone at Lyft customer service, hurling racial slurs at Lettman, making offensive threats, and refusing to get out of the car until he is refunded his $8.01 for the ride and police arrive so he can file a report.

Yelp will now allow pro-LGBTQ businesses to highlight they are ‘open to all’
Over 1200 businesses – including Yelp, Levi’s, Lyft, and Airbnb – have launched “Open to All,” a project to get businesses to show that they don’t discriminate.
The project will give businesses two ways to show that they do not discriminate on the basis of sexual orientation, gender identity, race, or other characteristics. They can post a sticker on their windows that says that they are open to all, and they can check a box for an “open to all” attribute on Yelp.
