Nihil sine magno labore (nothing without great labor) was one of the few things legendary photographer Art Shay learned in his year at Brooklyn College before service as a much-decorated lead navigator in World War II. Though he was unsure of the significance of the Latin phrase at the time, its impact surely was felt throughout Shay’s career as a photographer for LIFE, Time and Fortune magazines, leading to his work in a variety of labor situations.

The British band Kaiser Chiefs had a successful start to its career with 2005's Employment and 2007's Yours Truly, Angry Mob, which spawned the worldwide hit "Ruby." It's been three years since Kaiser Chiefs' last album, and since that time original drummer Nick Hodgson was replaced by Vijay Mistry.

The band's new album is titled Education, Education, Education, and War, which paraphrases a quote from Tony Blair. Here, the re-energized band joins World Cafe live in the studio.

The Strokes are a five-member indie NYC rock band that was born in 1998. They have five full albums and one EP, and “Reptilia” is the second single off their second album, Room on Fire. The song released in February of 2004, and in October 2011, New Music Express dubbed it 129 on their “150 Best Tracks of the Past 15 Years” list. It’s one of their most popular songs even though it didn’t see the best achievement. In fact, it’s so admired that some years later, another five-member NYC band, Punch Brothers, had to cover it.

Mayor Tom Barrett announced a new plan to fix Milwaukee's potholes while creating new jobs. He wants to team up with UMOS, a nonprofit advocacy group that helps underserved populations with employment, education, health and housing opportunities. After their 6-month contract with the city, new workers would be considered for openings for city jobs or maybe with private contractors.
