Coronavirus Update 10-13-2021: Unfortunately I need to keep clarifying misconceptions about HIPAA

I came across the following information on the website of a prominent national payroll provider:Q: In what ways can/should HR departments capture and record employee vaccination information? What are the HIPAA implications?A: When it comes to recording this data, it's a good idea to keep it separate from other employee information on file. It should not be part of standard employee records and should be accessible to as few people as possible. Because vaccination records are covered under HIPAA...

Its Ada Lovelace Day! Learn the Ada programming language in 2021

In the 1970s, many programming languages were hyperspecific to the hardware they controlled. As a result, developers had to learn to code differently depending on the hardware they were programming. Debugging and maintenance were highly specialized, and code wasn't reusable across machines. The UK government recognized these problems and moved toward establishing a standardized multipurpose programming language. On December 10, 1980—Ada Lovelace's birthday—they made the Ada programming language ...

Coronavirus Update 10-7-21: EEOC brings its first pandemic-related lawsuit over a denied WFH accommodation

The fact that an employer temporarily excused performance of one or more essential functions when it closed the workplace and enabled employees to telework for the purpose of protecting their safety from COVID-19, or otherwise chose to permit telework, does not mean that the employer permanently changed a job’s essential functions, that telework is always a feasible accommodation, or that it does not pose an undue hardship. These are fact-specific determinations. EEOC's What You Should Know Ab...

Interview: Lamb Star Noomi Rapace & Director Valdimar Jóhannsson Talk Dark Folktale

Valdimar Jóhannsson’s slow-burn feature directorial debut Lamb, written by Jóhannsson and Icelandic author Sjón and starring Noomi Rapace, Hilmir Snær Guðnason, and Björn Hlynur Haraldsson, is a uniquely bizarre and moving supernatural thriller examining grief, parenthood, family, hope, loss, betrayal, and the unforgiving wild encompassed by an escalating tension that promises an unexpected reckoning on the desperate couple at the center of the dark (and occasionally humorous) folktale. “In the ...

A Surprisingly Wholesome Conversation With The Minds Behind A24's Lamb [Fantastic Fest]

As you'd expect from a horror movie released by A24, "Lamb" is bleak, unsettling, and designed to leave audiences wondering what the hell they just watched. But it's also surprisingly funny, and somehow, frequently adorable. If you speak to the folks who made it, this combination starts to make sense. "Lamb" stars Noomi Rapace and Hilmir Snær Guðnason as a couple living on a remote Icelandic farm, tending to sheep and grappling with a recent tragedy. Then, a miracle: one of their sheep gives bir...

Monrovia settles with DOJ to provide more wheelchair-accessible transportation

Monrovia has settled with the Department of Justice following a federal review that found the city’s GoMonrovia transportation program did not comply with the Americans with Disabilities Act. The program offered reduced-fare Lyft rides to residents 24 hours a day and seven days a week, but because Lyft did not offer wheelchair-accessible vehicles, the city limited individuals with disabilities to a separate dial-a-ride service, which did not operate after 10 p.m. or on certain holidays, accordin...
