    The Third Man at 70 — why the noir classic is as potent as ever

    In February 1948 Graham Greene visited the “smashed, dreary city of Vienna” in order to begin work on his treatment for The Third Man, an early cold war thriller considered one of the great films of the 20th century — what we now call a noir classic. Time seems only to have deepened the film’s power to move and unsettle. Postwar Vienna, grubby, grand and corrupt, provided Greene with an ideal setting for a melodrama of double-dealing and opportunistic political loyalties.

    Western Union layoffs to impact nearly 200 New Jersey workers, some offered Denver jobs

    Denver-based global money transmitter Western Union (NYSE: WU) is laying off a “significant portion” of its employees based out of a New Jersey office. The impacted employees of the office at 100 Summit Ave. in Montvale, New Jersey, will be laid off by Oct. 13, according to the Worker Readjustment and Retraining Notification Act (WARN) notice that the company filed with the state on Aug. 7. The letter, however, indicated that not all of the 192 "terminated" employees will leave the company.  “It is anticipated that some portion of the employees who are terminated as a result of this reduction in force will remain employed by Western Union, including at the company’s corporate headquarters [in Denver] as a transfer or [via a] remote work situation,” the letter said.  A spokeswoman with Western Union declined to answer any questions on the WARN Notice regarding the New Jersey layoffs.
