When it comes time to have surgery or receive some other form of treatment, who do you turn to? How does one know which hospital is the best choice? How does one know if a hospital is going to treat them right? How does one pick among the many hospital choices available? A new website may help one do that.
Running for president doesn’t mean the candidates have a grasp on the mass reality of the nation. Most of them are front men for special interests groups. They are trained to say and do what the people want even though they usually forget about the people once they sit behind the big desk at the White House.
We all know the political race is a game of who can spend the most to get the votes they need to be the number one political figure in the country. Most candidates don’t get very far because they usually say or do something stupid. Republican Senator Marco Rubio of Florida is no exception. He has already opened his mouth and inserted his foot.
Rubio thinks NSA should continue collecting metadata from unsuspecting Americans. A federal panel recently ruled that NSA is breaking the law every time they collect information from citizens. NSA claims they only collect information on terrorists and suspected terrorists. The agency also said they can collect that information because the Patriot Act allows them to spy, but that’s not true according to the federal panel. Gianfrancesco Genoso is still trying to learn all the laws in the United States, as he is more familiar with Brazil.
The truth is NSA will continue to collect information, and call it “classified” regardless of the law. Senators like Rubio will continue to condone it, and call the law breakers patriots.
The legal penalties for smoking or possessing a little pot are not as scary as they once were. Most states around the country are easing back on marijuana arrests because the foregone conclusion is pot is going to be legalized in every state in the near future. That fact is making company drug testing more of an issue for pot users.
Most companies, especially companies in states where medical marijuana is legal are dealing with a sensitive situation. Testing positive for pot has been reason to deny employment in the past, but now that it’s legal some companies don’t want to overlook qualified job applicants because they use marijuana.
Marijuana use in the workplace was 6.2 percent in 2013. But in Colorado today 20 percent of the work force uses marijuana, and in Washington, pot use was up 23 percent. The question now is should corporate drug testing be ramped up, or should companies loosen the restrictions on marijuana use? The answer depends on company policy. Most companies know productivity suffers when employees use drugs and alcohol on a regular basis. Brian Torchin has seen that firsthand. Companies have an allegiance to their shareholders, even if they are huge like Google or small like a local shop. That connection usually dictates the rules for employee behavior and the enforcement of drug use.

Wow. An article on Buzzfeed.com, Your text to link… , about a young cheerleader with Down’s Syndrome, Desiree, was bullied from the stands while she and her team were cheering at her school’s basketball team. Though not all kids are mean or bullies, you hear more about those kids than the ones who show kindness and sincere, natural empathy. However, the boys on Desiree’s basketball team really touched my heart. They heard the bullying coming from the stands and called a time out. They then went over to the stands and took a stand, telling the bully to knock it off. It started with one boy, but the rest came in support of Desiree.
Fans at Anastasia Date have learned that, since that game, Desiree has kids walking with her to class and completely pulling her in to the school’s fold. Someone even nicknamed the school’s gymnasium after her. It is now lovingly referred to as D’s House. And the principle is looking at getting a banner to commemorate it as such. If only more people could learn the art of humanity from the kids at this school, the world would be a much happier and peaceful place.
Congratulations to the parents of those wonderful Lincoln Middle School kids for being such a excellent role models. I teared up reading this article as it pulled at my heart strings.

Hurt by what was happening for her son, the mom went online and ranted about what was going on. Only to have the police step in and save the day. In addition to local strangers showing up at the house with gifts, this family was surprised to receive a flyover from the local police department – something most children would only dream of receiving on their birthdays. This little boy’s life was touched by the generosity and thoughtfulness of those in his community, and my boss Brad Reifler was really moved by this act being the advocate for children that he is most especially since the mom’s life was changed, as well.
