Damore: No one expects the Google inquisition, but …

According to an op-ed titled "Why I was sacked by Google" in the Wall Street Journal on Saturday, James Damore, who was sacked for writing a 10-page anti-diversity memo, said: "Google is a particularly intense echo chamber because it is in the middle of Silicon Valley and is so life-encompassing as a place to work". In it, Damore accused Google of a left-wing bias, questioned the effectiveness of its diversity programs, and suggested that biology, not just sexism, may contribute to the lack of women in tech and leadership roles.

Google has drawn severe criticism over firing James Damore as several anti-Google Ads have popped-up in public places across the streets of Venice.

Google chief Sundar Pichai said Dimore "crossd the line by advancing harmful gender stereotypes in Google's workplace".

Dory is a system used internally for Google employees to submit and vote on questions to be asked at town hall meetings.

S&P suffers weekly loss amid ongoing US-N.Korea tensions
Baker Avenue's Lip said the USA market was higher due to "bargain hunters", but "there's more room for the market to come down". The pan-European FTSEurofirst 300 index lost 1.06 percent and MSCI's gauge of stocks across the globe shed 0.17 percent.

The fired Google employee whose memo caused an uproar was back on the company's campus late Thursday afternoon.

Among those who denounced Damore's views on female workers was former Google vice president-turned-Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, who stated on Facebook that inequality in technology did not stem from gender differences. It has become an all-out culture war outside the company, as well, putting Google and its employees in the crosshairs.

Google tried to stop things from getting even more complicated and the CEO fired Damore due to violations in Google's Code of Conduct.

A number of employees sent emails to Pichai and told managers that they planned to skip the meeting because they were anxious that they would face online reprisals for speaking out. "Looking at who works for Google, it all makes sense now..." the caption read. In addition to the WSJ, he has given interviews to Bloomberg, spoken at length with two YouTube personalities popular with alt-right and right-wing audiences, Stefan Molyneux and Jordan B. Peterson, and he did a photoshoot with alt-right photographer Peter Duke.

However Chhotubhai Vasava told PTI that he voted for Ahmed Patel as the BJP had done very little for the tribals. Party leaders are expected to stamp approval on decisions taken by Nitish Kumar.

Damore's Twitter account has nearly 60,000 followers despite starting days ago. Critics of Damore's firing are planning to protest outside Google offices in five US cities. James Finberg, who is a civil rights attorney has announced that he is working on finding a legal basis for these women.

Perhaps most pertinently, 441 Google employees responded.

A Google representative did not immediately respond to a message seeking comment.

Damore said that he was largely ignored when the memo was circulating within the company, but when it went viral, those who disagreed with the content sent angry emails to the human resources department demanding that he be censored and punished. It signifies their belief that liberals stifle free speech by humiliating right-wing voices.
