WIRTW #546 (the “Arrivederci” edition)

Today is good bye … but only for two weeks. My kids' school gives them that much time off for Spring Break each year. So we are headed to Italy. Rome and Florence to be precise.

In the meantime, if you have any last minute tips on what to do, see, or eat in either of these cities, drop a note in the comments below. Here's what I read this week: Discrimination Two-Percent, Schmoopercent — via Kate Bi...

WIRTW #545 (the “International Women's Day” edition) #IWD2019

Happy International Women's Day! I didn't always consider myself a feminist. But I'm proud to call myself one ever since May 27, 2006—the day my daughter was born. It wasn't that I was hostile to the issue; I just never engaged in any active thought about it. Now that I have a female life for which I am responsible, I fully embrace the term. I worry about the world in which she lives, and how that world may treat her because of her sex. ❔ Will she have the same opportunities? ❔ Will she earn the...

Emotional outbursts as ADA-protected disabilities

The term hysteria comes from the Greek word hysterika, meaning Uterus. In ancient Greece it was believed that a wandering and discontented Uterus was blamed for that dreaded female ailment of excessive emotion, hysteria. The disease's symptoms were believed to be dictated by where in the body the offending organ roamed. It was not religious belief but a social belief. Hysteria Less than two months after Jessica Mullen's hysterectomy, she applied...

Trump Mar-A-Lago Buddy Wrote Policy Pitch. The President Sent It To VA Chief.

A handwritten note to Trump, addressed “Dear King,” presents another instance of access and influence for Mar-a-Lago associates. In late 2017, on one of President Donald Trump’s retreats to Mar-a-Lago, his private club in Palm Beach, Florida, he caught up with an old friend: Albert Hazzouri. When Hazzouri is not at Mar-a-Lago, he’s a cosmetic dentist in Scranton, Pennsylvania. At a campaign rally there in 2016, Trump gave him a shoutout: “Stand up, Albert. Where the hell are you, Albert?

Getting older, found a little help to get around the range. Rollator from Aldi.

I was at the range the other day and saw a fellow with a walker that was also a rolling seat. He used the seat while shooting and then loaded up his gear on the seat and rolled it out the door. He did not seem to be having any issues walking. :confused: A few weeks ago I noticed a fellow at a gun show using a walker in a similar way to carry a few guns that he had for sale. (The shows around he don't allow any kind of a wheeler or cart during show hours, even for table holders.) Apparently ADA ...

4 Ways to Avoid Employer Discrimination Against Drug and Alcohol Histories

By DeAnna M. Crosby To avoid employer discrimination against individuals with drug and alcohol histories, one must first understand one’s own perceptions about this subject. It’s understandable that as a business owner, you want to hire the best qualified job candidate, but given the widespread stigma that follows people who have substance abuse histories, how will you know if this employee will exhibit questionable behaviors down the road? Navigating the murky waters of employment is tricky bus...

Advocates, residents see Highway 30 paving project as chance for safer bicycling

Highway 30 has potential to be a direct route from downtown Portland to St. Johns. Unfortunately its bike access is abysmal.(Photos: Jonathan Maus/BikePortland) Anyone who’s ridden a bicycle on Highway 30/St. Helens Road between northwest Portland and the St. Johns Bridge understands why it has the moniker “Dirty 30”. With a major paving project in the pipeline, ODOT has a chance to change that bad reputation. The narrow, unprotected bike lanes are almost always strewn with gravel and all m...

A textbook lesson the ADA's interactive process

Does an employer have an obligation to return an employee to work following an extended unpaid leave of absence granted as a reasonable accommodation under the ADA? You might be inclined to say, "Of course." The answer, however, is nuanced, and depends on the length of the leave, the composition of your workforce at the time the employee seeks to return to work, and your efforts to engage in the ADA's interactive process with the employee during the leave.
