Guest: Jessica Kirkpatrick, PhD, Lead Product Data Scientist for Hired  Women working full-time in the United States make only 79 cents for every dollar a man makes. So a woman looking to earn as much money as a man did all of last year would have to work last year and the first few months of this year – up until April 12 – yesterday, which is known as Equal Pay Day.  But there’s an interesting exception to this well-documented wage gap: in the sales, marketing and technology fields it turns out that young women fresh out of college end up with salaries 7% above what men are offered for the same jobs. The finding comes from a report compiled by the jobs website Hired.

Guest: Eric Jensen, JD, International Law Professor at the BYU Law School  The South China Sea is the hotly-disputed portion of the Pacific Ocean that’s surrounded by Asian countries – China, Taiwan, Vietnam, the Philippines, Indonesia and Malaysia all touch the South China Sea. But China has grown increasingly possessive of it in recent years – sparking disputes that are becoming military in nature. The conflict is now so worrisome to international leaders that the developed nations known as the G7 – which include the US, Canada, Japan and several European countries – issued a statement this week basically calling on China to back off – without actually naming China. Beijing shot back that the G7 should mind its own business.
