Are men entitled to the same leave for a new baby?

Q: I have been working 4 years for a large company in Los Angeles. My wife just gave birth to our first child. When I asked my boss about parental leave, I was told that I could take off for 2 weeks and no more. I thought I was entitled to 12 weeks. My boss said, "You're not a woman, you did not give birth." When I insisted that I needed 12 weeks, I was told that company policy is for men to be approved 2 weeks leave only. Is this legal?   A: No, it is not. Under the California Family Rights Act (CFRA), California employees have the right to take a leave of absence for health or family-related reasons. One of the specific provisions of CFRA is to allow employees -- both m...Keep on reading: Are men entitled to the same leave for a new baby?.....»»

Federer wins, Serena loses in Cincy tourney

MASON, Ohio (AP) — Roger Federer made a successful return to the Western & Southern Open on Tuesday. The day wasn't so great for Serena Williams. Federer advanced to the third round with a 6-4, 6-4 victory against Peter Gojowczyk, and Williams was eliminated by eighth-seeded Petra Kvitova in a 6-3, 2-6, 6-3 second-round loss. Federer and Williams were making their first appearance at the tournament since they each won the title in 2015. Williams opened with a straight-set victory against Daria Gavrilova. After a first-round bye, Federer extended his Cincinnati winning streak to 11 matches since losing to Rafael Nadal in the 2013 quarterfinals. "It doesn't feel like I have been away for so long here from Cincinnati," Federer said. "I guess the wheel keeps turning. It's not like I missed two years of tennis. It was a great pleasure to be back." The second-seeded Federer, refreshed from a month off after losing in the Wimbledon quarterfinals, became the tournament favorite when Nadal withdrew on Sunday night. Williams also was knocked out in her last tournament at San Jose two weeks ago after reaching the Wimbledon final. Cincinnati was her fifth tournament since she had a baby last September. She has dealt with blood clots and recently said she has been struggling with postpartum emotions. "You know, this is a long comeback," she said. "I just began. I just started — definitely at the very, very beginning. I'm getting there, and I'm going to just continue to work hard, and hopefully, I'll start winning more matches." Karolina Pliskova and Nick Kyrgios also advanced Tuesday in early tournament action. Pliskova moved into the second round by snapping a seven-match losing streak against Agnieszka Radwanska with a 6-3, 6-3 win. "It means a lot because it was against her, and, like, you know, I never beat her," Pliskova said. "We played so many times. I think I always played her at her best level the matches before, so it was always tough." Kyrgios, a finalist last year in Cincinnati, overcame physical problems to fight off qualifier Denis Kudla for a 6-7 (2), 7-5, 7-6 (9) victory. "This year has been tough," Kyrgios said. "I started the year very well. Then, obviously, I hurt my elbow. Then I had an ongoing hip injury. We have been definitely thinking about the options with my hip. You know, there is only so much you can do before you have to, you know, I guess, get surgery or something like that. You know, right now I'm just managing it." No. 11 seed David Goffin advanced with a 7-5, 6-3 win over Stefanos Tsitsipas, and Leonardo Mayer became the first player to reach the third round on the men's side with a 7-6 (7), 6-4 victory over 16th-seeded Lucas Pouille. Denis Shapovalov also reached the third round with an upset, knocking off 14th-seeded Kyle Edmund, 6-4, 7-5. Australian Open semifinalist Hyeon Chung won the last five games to beat Jack Sock 2-6, 6-1, 6-2. Sock has lost eight straight matches since winning in Rome on May 13. Two-time Cincinnati semifinalist Milos Raonic advanced with a 6-3, 6-3 win over qualifier Dusan Lajovic. Robin Haase also made it to the second round, defeating Filip Krajinovic 4-6, 6-2, 6-3. Fifth-seeded Elina Svitolina was tested by wild card Svetlana Kuznetsova before reaching the third round with a gritty 7-6 (1), 4-6, 6-4 win. Sixth-seeded Caroline Garcia also reached the third round with a 6-4, 6-5 win over wild card Victoria Azarenka, but 12th-seeded Daria Kasatkina suffered a first-round upset at the hands of qualifier Petra Martic, 4-6, 6-4, 6-3. Elise Mertens scored a 6-4, 6-2 first-round win over Magdalena Rybarikova. Ashleigh Barty stopped wild card Marketa Vondrousova 6-3, 7-5. Maria Sakkari upset Indian Wells champion Naomi Osaka 6-3, 7-6 (8). Ekaterina Makarova cruised past qualifier Ana Bogdan 6-3, 6-2......»»

NCAA: JJ Domingo s breakout performance gives CSB sigh of relief

"Ooh! Sa wakas, nabuhay ka rin!" That's how CSB Blazers coach TY Tang opened the post-game press conference as his longest-tenured player JJ Domingo finally showed up for the first time this season. Domingo, who is playing in his fourth season with the squad, had himself a breakout game of 22 points, seven rebounds, four assists and a steal, which helped steer CSB to their third win of the season. For Tang, it's been a long time coming for his most veteran player, who is averaging 2.2 markers in 23.5 minutes for the season. "JJ finally is back. We've been patient, even for this day to come. We know what JJ can do. It's just a matter of getting his confidence back and being able to contribute in a way we know he can," the second-year coach said.  The coach also added that he hopes that the game will a sign of greater things to come. As for the guard, his coaches' incessant desire to keep him going was the key for the breakout, and thanks them for their efforts. "Marami akong games na wala ako masiyadong na-cocontribute. Tapos, yun lang talaga, si coach nag-chchallenge sa akin everyday. Pag wala yung laro ko, masama, walang nangyayari. Tuloy-tuloy na yun. So, ang gusto lang nila coach sa akin, yung decision-making ko maging tama." Another inspiration for the senior is his infant son, who watched the game along with his girlfriend. Domingo kissed his son after the game, a reminder to keep his game going. "Kailangan sa bawat laro ko may parang mapatunayan ko sa anak ko na, kaya ko rin maglaro, ganoon. Sila inspirasyon ko paggising ko, ganoon. Naging emotional talaga ako pag nakikita ko yung baby ko ganoon. So parang nachchallenge ako, every game." __   Follow this writer on Twitter, @philipptionary. .....»»

Australia drops Philippines to battle for 3rd vs China

It was a lofty goal for Batang Gilas to begin with. But even in crashing out of its title bid in the Fiba Asia U18 tournament in Thailand after a 77-43 drubbing at the hands of powerhouse Australia, the Philippines can still embrace the optimism spurred by a team that has surprised pundits.
