The MarketWatch News Department was not involved in the creation of this content.

An early 2020 report found that 87% of employers were already experiencing a skills gap, or expected to within the next few years – particularly in the software engineering fields. Further, there is a notable absence of mentorship in the computer programming industry for those looking for ways to grow their careers. Thus, the average software developer must perform self-mentorship to become better craftspeople and to guide themselves through their own career advancement.

To meet these demands, Galvanize, a leader in developing talent and capabilities for individuals and corporations in technical fields such as software engineering and data science, is today introducing yet another solution: ten part-time, professional development Hack Reactor courses for experienced individuals looking to grow their careers.

While there are many educational opportunities for software developers in the market, including one-off courses and topic-specific

Freshly brought to the world’s attention by Donald Trump’s refusal to condemn their associations with white supremacist ideology during Tuesday night’s US presidential debate, the US neo-fascist group the Proud Boys was created by the Canadian-British far-right activist and Vice magazine co-founder Gavin McInnes in 2016 in the lead-up to Trump’s election as president.

The group, which admits men only, was classified in 2018 by the FBI as an “extremist group”, while the US research and advocacy organization Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) lists it as a hate group. The Anti-Defamation League describes the group as misogynistic, Islamophobic, transphobic and anti-immigration.

It is based in America, mostly the western US, but has a presence in some other countries, notably Canada, the UK and Australia.

And while it has an outsize reputation based on the high-profile agitation events and street brawls its members are most infamous

Goldman Sachs Predicts Over 40% Rally for These 3 Stocks

A new wave of optimism is splashing onto the Street. Investment firm Goldman Sachs just gave its three-month stock forecast a boost, lifting it from Neutral to Overweight, with it also projecting “high single-digital returns” for global stocks over the next year.What’s behind this updated approach? Goldman Sachs strategist Christian Mueller-Glissmann cites the impressive rebound in global earnings growth and reduced equity costs as the drivers of the estimate revision. On top of this, a “broader procyclical shift” in stocks and other assets could take place during the remainder of this year.“We have shifted more cyclical on sectors and themes tactically but still prefer growth vs. value on a strategic horizon… In the near-term, elevated uncertainty on U.S. elections and a better global growth outlook might benefit non-U.S. equities more, but in the medium term a large weight in

Dutch Design Week cancelled

All physical events at next month’s Dutch Design Week have been cancelled due to a rise in coronavirus cases in the city.

Eindhoven’s mayor John Jorritsma announced the decision today, less than three weeks ahead of the biggest design event in the Dutch calendar.

Mayor “cannot decide otherwise”

“When I see the increasing numbers of infections in our city, with the images of the overflowing healthcare system in spring still vividly in mind, I cannot decide otherwise than to prioritise fighting the virus and preventing new infections,” Jorritsma said.

“Welcoming or facilitating large groups of people who visit DDW in the city, is not part of that.”

Dutch Design Week (DDW) usually attracts around 350,000 visitors to the city and bills itself as the largest design event in northern Europe.

This year’s festival was due to take place from 17 to 25

Pamplin Media Group – Housing advocate to address region’s shortage of homes

Emilee Geist

Pamplin Media co-sponsors the free public talk as part of Portland Housing Month on Wednesday, Oct. 7.

Nationally recognized affordable housing advocate Randy Shaw will highlight Portland Housing Month with a free online presentation on Wednesday, Oct. 7. He is best known for arguing that cities should encourage the construction of as much new housing as fast as possible to bring down skyrocketing rents and home prices.

“I’m going to talk about the need to build more housing and how to make the case for it,” said Shaw, an attorney, author and activist who lives in Berkeley, California.

Shaw also is the author of the 2018 book “Generation Priced Out: Who Will Live in the New Urban America?” It includes studies of progressive cities — including Portland — whose housing policies have nevertheless caused rents and home costs to increase to the point that most lower-income and minority residents no

by Dina Gerdeman

The COVID-19 pandemic continues to rock the workplace with no end in sight, leaving business leaders to struggle with a wide variety of challenges, including keeping staff members happily engaged—and employed.

To make sense of the pandemic’s impact on workers—both on their day-to-day roles, as well as their mental well-being—a forthcoming article in American Psychologist examines current organizational psychology research to help business leaders manage COVID-related fallout in the workplace and develop solutions to ease the stress many employees are experiencing.

“We live in an incredibly interconnected global community. So disease threats such as COVID-19 need to be recognized as part of the current work-scape and systematically addressed,” says Harvard Business School Assistant Professor of Business Administration Ashley Whillans, who co-authored the article, “COVID-19
