"The Nutcracker" has it all: a child with her head full of dreams, a villain at the helm of a dizzying mouse army, and a hostess extraordinaire in the Sugar Plum Fairy, serving sweets from every corner of the globe. This month, Symphony Silicon Valley performs its rendition of Tchaikovsky's festive, enduring classic, as the full orchestra, led by veteran conductor George Daugherty, joins forces with the Ballet Stars of Moscow.

The decision marks a major victory for housing advocates. The company had earlier threatened to block building of the housing unless it was able to add more office space to its campus project.

A lot of women have come forward in the last few months with stories of being sexually harassed, and often the perpetrators have lost their jobs.
