US in modest recovery — Fed to cut back on QE next month
Reuters
The U.S. economy is on a modest, yet sturdy recovery path that will bring down the jobless rate to 7 percent by the middle of 2014, leaving the Federal Reserve on track to ease off on its stimulus program next month, a Reuters poll of economists found. While traders in financial markets have been fretting over when the Fed will pare back its $85 billion in monthly bond purchases, forecasters have remained convinced over past months that September is the time.

The Metropolitan Corporate Counsel
It is not just large financial institutions and retailers that are targeted in cybercrimes. Small and medium-sized businesses are prime targets for cyber thieves these days, based on the perception that they are the weakest security link in the chain.

HR must 'be proactive' in confronting race relations issues in the workplace
Bloomberg BNA
Racism in the workplace can be overt, but it also can be a hard thing to characterize, Beth Livingston, assistant professor of human resource studies at Cornell University, recently told BNA. "People do bad things and make unintelligent decisions in the workplace," said Livingston. "However, these issues are not always blatant." According to Livingston, conflicts based on race are often the result of many "micro-aggressions" that act as paper cuts leading to a larger wound. Employers, managers and HR should "be proactive" in addressing these mini-conflicts before they blow up into something much larger, said Livingston.
