The Working Families Party dug in, accusing Crowley of disrespecting Ocasio-Cortez by not removing himself from the ballot. Ocasio-Cortez made the rift public when she tweeted that Crowley is keeping his name on the general election ballot as the nominee for the Working Families Party, which endorsed him during the election. She asserted that the congressman was, in fact, mounting a third party challenge against her — and that he had ignored her attempts to speak by phone. "As for the ballot issue, New York state election laws require a candidate to either register to vote in another state or switch their candidacy to another electoral office in order to have their name removed. "WFP is giving all we have to electing Ocasio-Cortez and other progressive insurgents all across the nation.

Ryanair Pilots Strike, Causing Cancelations Just as Tourist Season Takes Off

fortune.com | Jul 12 @ 19:28

Ryanair pilots in Belgium, Italy, Spain, and Portugal are also planning strikes in July. The airline was forced to cancel 30 flights out of Ireland on Thursday, about 2% of its daily flights. Irish Ryanair pilots are represented by the Irish Air Line Pilot’s Association (IALPA), part of the Fórsa trade union, which also announced two more one-day strikes to occur on July 20 and 24, according to Reuters. The company says its pilots have the best working conditions in the low-cost category, and that meeting the pilots’ demands would undermine the carrier’s business model. Ryanair is Europe’s largest low-cost carrier, flying in 37 countries and carrying 130 million passengers in 2017 alone.

Arby's is among the fast-food chains agreeing to end "no-poaching" policies. Ferguson said his office began investigating early this year, prompted by a New York Times article detailing how such policies had stifled wages for fast-food workers.

Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson announced binding agreements with the companies — McDonald's, Auntie Anne's, Arby's, Carl's Jr., Jimmy John's, Cinnabon and Buffalo Wild Wings — at a news conference Thursday. The so-called no-poach policies prevent franchises from hiring workers away from other franchises of the same chain.

Those seem to be the takeaways from Gartner's latest report on PC shipments, which it issued on Thursday. Meanwhile, in the US, traditional PC shipments are facing another challenge — Chromebooks, which Gartner doesn't include in its shipment numbers.

In an interview with Business Insider, Omnicom Digital CEO Jonathan Nelson said that he's particularly interested in how creatives will be able to use the tool. TV-to-digital tracking is limited to inventory purchased via advanced TV like over-the-top platforms and addressable TV tactics that serve targeted ads from set-top boxes.
