  • Supporters defend proposed uranium mining project in Va.
    Concerns about the potential environmental effects of uranium mining in Virginia are overstated, mine supporters say, adding that modern mining technologies will ensure that water supplies are protected. Virginia's uranium would generate jobs and the necessary fuel for U.S. nuclear plants, said Virginia state Sen. John Watkins. "Uranium mining is done safely around the world, and Virginia is capable of mining it safely, too," he said. McClatchy Washington Bureau (12/23) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story

    Bosses who hold year-end reviews for their workers are approaching feedback in the wrong way, writes Denis Wilson. Feedback should be a continuous process of praise and gradual course-correction, not a once-a-year blowout event. "Dropping bombs on employees once or twice a year only serves to build up pressure and make feedback sessions feel like indictments," Wilson writes.
