"We are committed to eradicating harassment and ensuring that all employees, as well as our freelance community, are aware of our policies, are comfortable reporting any concerns and feel supported by our company".

Kevin Spacey, Louis C.K. and Mark Halperin are among the numerous other men whose careers have taken a downward spiral amid allegations of sexual harassment and assault since The New York Times published reports detailing multiple sexual harassment and assault allegations against producer Harvey Weinstein last month. Before he was sacked, he was overseeing Dark Knights: Metal, a special series that is reportedly one of DC's biggest-selling titles now.

After the earlier suspension of Berganza, the comics website the Mary Sue alleged that DC's response was "undeniably too little, too late". In total, five sources told Buzzfeed that they reported Berganza's behavior to superiors working at DC Comics, though it appeared that nothing come of the complaints.

The checkpoint for gates 70 through 129 was reopened after security sweeps indicated they could be safely reactivated. Thankfully, it turned out the mysterious smoke was caused by a lithium battery in a camera exploding inside the bag.

According to the original BuzzFeed story, rumors of Berganza's misconduct were circulating at DC for years, and his accusers left the company while he continued to rise through the ranks until he became a group editor.

Berganza still received the promotion, but was demoted to group editor in 2012 after another woman said he kissed her without her consent at a comics convention.

After the 2012 WonderCon incident, Berganza reportedly apologized to DC's all-male staff for his behavior and pledged to change. After the article initially broke on Friday, DC suspended Berganza on Saturday, before firing him outright on Monday.

Melgar lost consciousness, and stopped breathing - the SEALs attempted to open an airway in Melgar's throat, to no avail. He was rushed to a French clinic in Mali by another Green Beret and the two SEALs, but was already dead on arrival.

Berganza had worked with DC since the early 1990s. "DC prides itself on being a premier destination for top talent", she wrote in an email to employees, "as well as an incredible creatively collaborative place to work that is a safe and secure environment for our employees and extended freelance family".

You don't need me to tell you that the male-dominated comic book world has long ignored, abused, and generally mistreated many women who have dared to speak out in the industry. even just creatively.

Low mortgage rates not impressing potential new home buyers
One of the problems is that once rates reach rock bottom (which is pretty well where they are right now) the only way is up. This could be a good time for more young Americans to take out a Roth Individual Retirement Account or IRA for short.
