Harlequin’s tricky name

I am picking up where I left off last week. In the post for August 26, 2020, I discussed some words that surround Harlequin on a dictionary page. He ended up among harlots, harangues, and the harrowing of hell. I also touched on the possible origin of some European words for “war,” and in a rather unexpected form war will return to us later. How could Arlecchino, this buffoon, a combination of naivete and shrewdness, stupidity and common sense, Columbine’s lover, a servant always in trouble for ...

How to prepare students for jobs in the 21st century

A common goal for educators is to identify, and then teach, cognitive skills that are needed for the workplace. In 2017 a group of investigators at the Educational Testing Service in Princeton, New Jersey, investigated which skills are needed as a result of the rapid changes occurring as the United States shifted from an industrial to an information-based economy. The organization analyzed 142,000 online job advertisements that were posted between February and April of that year. The most highly...

Accepting uncertainty creates freedom

We all want to be in control.Our quest for control in the current atmosphere of fear has resulted in the hoarding of toilet paper, hand sanitizer, and face masks. In the illusion of control, we close our minds and our hearts to the possibility of the meaning we may discover during a time of crisis. Ironically, the very security we struggle to find becomes a wall that we build around ourselves, quarantined in terror. The most dangerous isolation is not the necessary reality of the precautions bei...

Are you getting ready to celebrate Children’s Day tomorrow?

Can you write Polish numbers?

Learning Polish numbers is definitely very important, just like learning numbers in any language. They appear in every day conversations and once you know the structure of creating them in grammar, it’s actually pretty easy to write them. I think my friends actually have more problems with Polish numbers’ pronunciation, than writing them down… In Polish numbers from 0 to 11 are unique words that have to be memorized. Numbers from 12 to 19 are formed by using the following pattern: for example 13...

Coronavirus Update 4-27-2020: Bringing your employees back to work when unemployment pays them more than you do

At 2 pm today, Governor DeWine will announce his plan for restarting Ohio’s economy (currently expected to begin on May 2). One huge issue, however, is how businesses can incent their employees to return to work if unemployment is paying them more than you will. Including the CARES Act’s $600 unemployment bonus that expires on July 31, an employee earning maximum unemployment benefits from the State of Ohio earns $1,247 per week, the equivalent of an hourly rate of $31.17 or a yearly salary of...

Evergreen content, unlike topical content, has the potential to remain relevant for long periods of time. In theory, an evergreen piece of content should remain prescient years into the future. With that in mind, today we’ll take a closer look at this content style and expla...

How is Poland preparing to fight coronavirus?

There is no denying it…the world is panicking because of the coronavirus (korona wirus). The anxiety now gripping the world is extremely challenging…There’s no longer an illusion that the contagion can be contained. And this is only the beginning.

Federal appeals court orders NLRB to determine whether workplace harassment laws trump the National Labor Relations Act

You might recall Constellium Rolled Products Ravenswood, a 2018 NLRB case in which the Board held that offensive graffiti scrawled on an employee’s timesheet (“whore board”) constituted a lawful exercise of protected concerted activity. Recently, the D.C. Circuit Court of Appeals held that the NLRB shirked its responsibility by not considering addressing any alleged conflict between its interpretation of the NLRA and the Company’s obligations under state and federal equal employment opportuni...

Etymology and delusion, part 2

Last week (November 20, 2019), I discussed one aspect of etymological lunacy. Looking for a (or even the) protolanguage is a sound idea, even though specialists’ efforts in this direction have been both successful and disappointing. The existence of Proto-Indo-European and Proto–Semitic can hardly be doubted; yet many crucial details remain unknown. For example, the homeland of the Indo-Europeans and the circumstances that led to the triumph of that language in the enormous Eurasian territory re...

#MeToo does not always equal #FireHim

Just because an employee complains about harassment does not mean that if the allegations are founded the employer must fire the harasser. Consider, for example, Abbood v. Texas Health & Human Servs. Comm. (5th Cir. 11/7/19). Amanda Abbood, an employee of the Texas Health & Human Service Commission, complained to her supervisor that a co-worker, Matt Otts, had subjected her to sexually offensive and unwelcome conduct, including comments about her figure, discussing his marital problems, and de...

2020 income tax rates and inflation-adjusted tax brackets

Image by Gerd Altmann from Pixabay This is the  first in a 10-part series  on how major tax provisions are affected by inflation. The Internal Revenue Service released all these figures today, Nov. 6, 2019. True, the figures are key in 2020 tax planning, which you should be doing now along with making 2019 year-end tax moves. But since they are for next year, there's not a lot of urgency to get them all out all at once. Patience, I've discovered over the years, works well with taxes as i...

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.

Why are Your Landscapes Always in…Landscape?

Should you Automatically Shoot Landscapes in this Orientation or Go Vertical? I won’t knock you over the head for assuming landscapes should be shot in landscape orientation and portraits should be, guess what, shot in portrait orientation. Sometimes, we can mix things up a little. Occasionally, going with the opposite orientation that you’re used to can seem plain weird, almost wrong. But why? Well, this is where we’re busting open some misconceptions about the “rules” of shooting landscapes. ...
