Cure The Defeat GBM Research Collaborative, a project of the National Brain Tumor Society (NBTS), aims to overcome slow progress in the development of treatments for the brain cancer glioblastoma (GBM).

USA Today Job seekers should prepare for a lengthy interview process — landing a new gig has never taken longer.

HD causes a staggering array of mental and physical difficulties. There are few treatments and no cure. As if that weren’t enough, many people hide the disease and live in isolation fearing discrimination, rejection and condemnation.

VICE News Unemployment is down and readings of wages are slightly up. At the same time, companies are doing a pretty bang-up job of pocketing the economic expansions’ rewards as cold, hard profit. By comparison, U.S. hourly earnings have been growing about 2.5 percent each month this year. “Economic gains are not being distributed evenly among workers,” Glassdoor’s chief economist Andrew Chamberlain said in a recent announcement of the company’s own private study of wage trends. “Some of this weakness in pay growth can be attributed to automation, which is beginning to affect jobs that pay right around the median wage in the U.S., which are typical middle-class wages.”
