The iconic image of Vikings wearing helmets capped with horns, persistent in pop culture from Bugs Bunny to the logo for the Minnesota Vikings, is wrong according to new research.  ,  As detailed in a December study published in the peer-reviewed German journal Praehistorische Zeitschrift, researchers at Aarhus University in Højbjerg, Denmark have traced two horned helmets located in a Danish bog back to 900 BC, nearly two millennia before the Vikings emerged and embarked on large-scale raids throughout Europe around 800 CE.

A National Labor Relations Board ruling sheds light on a highly secret anti-union campaign at Google, that a top executive explicitly described as an initiative to “convince [employees] that unions suck.”  The campaign was called Project Vivian, and ran at Google between late 2018 and early 2020 to combat employee activism and union organizing efforts at the company, according to court documents.  Google’s director of employment law, Michael Pfyl, described Project Vivian as an initiative “to engage employees more positively and convince them that unions suck.” In his January 7 ruling, a NLRB judge wrote that Google must “immediately” produce 180 internal documents that he reviewed related to Google’s Project Vivian campaign, including the document…
