#EqualPayDay: It’s not a myth. Women are missing from the highest-paid jobs

If it’s a high-paid job, chances are you won’t find a woman in it.

That’s the conclusion of a LinkedIn analysis, prepared for Equal Pay Day on Tuesday, of how women fared in the top 100 highest-paying jobs in the U.S. On average, women make up less than 30% of employees in each role. Among the highest-paid roles, only three of them employ more women than men — all within human resource roles.

“Parity has been an uneven and slow progress,” says Paul Ko, head of economic graph analysis at LinkedIn.

The disparity is pronounced in the upper echelons of tech leadership, where females are underrepresented as chief technology officer (5%), vice president of engineering (5%) and director of system engineering (7%) roles.

Moon: Look, he’s my brother and I care about him, but Sun is always too busy worrying about Pokémon stats and career junk! This is Alola! It’s time to unwind and relax~!

Besides, we already knew from the start who the REAL champion of the two is going to be!

Things that would’ve been funnier than the Reinhardt chat thing:

  • Changing all Genji voice lines to I NEED HEALING
  • giving everyone a Hanzo player icon as Career Profile
  • Manipulating character stats for one day only so everyone has 100 hours on Genji, Hanzo, Widowmaker, or Torbjörn

listen: genji is just very very important to me

anyways, competitive mode has been released and i have passed the Threshold of Uncaring since i’ll probably not ever really venture into it bc i got no consistent squad like my brother and i’m easily embarrassed and so now i will proceed to play Genji forever in quickplay with zero regard for raging teammates and trash-talking opponents until i’m good or until my hours catch up and Genji is my attacking main bc honestly

i deserve a break from playing mercy i’ve literally spent double the time playing her compared to the next most frequent hero (S76) and according to my career stats i’ve spent… 7+ hours on S76 (what seriously?? man why)

anyways playing genji is tons of fun, but so is drawing genji

i love genji basically.  that’s the whole point of this post. genji’s the best i adore him please protect him and ensure him eternal happiness

anonymous asked:

who do you think is the most underrated pats player. you can do more than one. and why?

I think most of us who are Pats fans try to give credit where credit is due, but there are a few people who are phenomenal players that don’t get talked about on Sports Center nearly enough.

Julian Edelman:

You all know that I love Julian, I think he’s a babe, I think he’s hilarious, but he is a fantastic, a devoted player. There is a reason he’s called The Energizer Bunny, he keeps going and going.  I’ll put some stats down below to prove my point:

Height: 5'10"/5'11" (these numbers vary)

Weight: 198-200lbs (boom, as do these)

Position(s) played: Quarterback (KSU), Wide Receiver, Punt Returner, Defensive Back.

NFL Career Stats (as of 2014):

266 Receptions

2,742 Receiving Yards

14 Receiving Touch downs

Draft Pick: Chosen in 2009, in the 7th Round, 232 overall, position undetermined.

While most people know that the Patriots organization takes players from obscurity and turns them into global celebrities, and standards for game play, Julian Edelman seemingly would not fall into the pattern of those before him. We all know the story of Tom Brady, how he came from the 6th round pick and saved the day when Drew Bledsoe was horribly injured in the second game of the 2001 season against the New York Jets after being hit by linebacker Mo Lewis, suffering a collapsed lung and sheared blood vessel. We all remember the anxiety of a baby-faced Tom Brady taking the field, the man who had been chosen 199 overall replacing the man who was chosen 1 overall seemed fruitless, Tom Brady led the Patriots to a Superbowl victory that year,(the first one for the organization) and he’d do it 3 more times.

For 8 years, #11 would lie untouched, there would be no #11 beside #12 for 8 years, until a 23 year old blond Californian would step onto the field in 2009, wearing the number with a new name, and an undetermined legacy.
Few people knew his name, few people thought he’d be there for more than a season. The man who was called a “novelty” a “unnecessary choice” and a “mistake” by the press was coming to Boston wearing Drew’s number. It was like giving Babe’s number to A.Rod. a travesty.

Very quickly it looked like Edelman would be okay among fans, for what he lacked in height, he made up for in speed, the fact is, Julian Edelman is one fast mammajamma. When he catches that ball, if he has the opportunity to, he’s running down the field before you know it. That was what was incredible to me at first watching this guy, this unknown, this guy who came from Kent State. Kent State, not Alabama, not Michigan, not Clemson, not LSU, not NC State, not UCLA, Kent State. While KSU is a Division I football school, it seemed like the last place this man would come from. To quote my father in 2009 the first time he saw Edelman run up the field “who is this guy, and where has he been all my life?” My father loved Drew Bledsoe, and stood behind the decision not to reassign the number. He framed Bledsoe’s jersey, no lie, it hangs over the fireplace. He loved Bledsoe, and he loves Edelman.

Julian Edelman had one of the highest YAC (Yards After Catch) numbers this 2014 season, totaling him up at 448 yards in this category, for a season total of 972 yards,  placing him at 17 out of 461 players, placing him 6 spaces below fellow New England teammate Tight end Rob Gronkowski and 7 spaces above teammate Running back Shane Vereen. The advantage that Gronkowski has over Edelman is clearly size, we all know Gronkowsksi is huge, he’s 6'6" and 265lbs. But the advantage that Edelman has over Gronkowski is age, meaning that he has a full season to hold over Gronkowski, he’s 3 years older, so wisdom might keep him from the injuries that plague Gronkowski and larger players.

Every time Julain Edelman takes the field, you are more than likely about to witness greatness, whether it is an amazing 43-yard punt return for a touchdown in this 2014 season, or his play and pass to Danny Amendola that allowed the world to see just what this guy can do, or just the quiet genius and seemingly telepathic connection he has with Tom Brady. I think it was put best by a commentator during Super Bowl XLIX : “Edelman gets it done, time after time, he does the work, he plays the game, he does his job”.

From a joke to Superbowl Champion, That’s what makes Edelman, Incredelman. 

(look at me, get on my level, EPSN also thank you anon, for allowing me to detail my love of Jules for a reason).
