Every worker deserves a good vacation. 
 
Four out of 10 Americans took no vacation days last year, but a strong work ethic isn't the reason

Everyone's position is relative, so go ahead and disagree with the points made in the article, +Hogarth Ferguson. But don't assume everyone enjoys the same things you do on the job. I spent a lot of time working in Corporate America, and not on the well-paid side of the fence, either. I pretty much got my thirteen days of PTO a year (and way back when it was ten days of paid vacation and three days of sick leave). Guess what? It wasn't enough. I hated working for a living, hated wasting my life pushing papers. I tumbled early it was a scam perpetrated by the CEOs to make them rich and keep you on the edge of poverty. And when you got laid off, unemployment paid you the bare minimum instead of a high percentage of your salary. That amount didn't change much through the first decade of this century, when I was laid off three times thanks to recessions. 

I took early retirement when I couldn't get a job due to being all of sixty (ageism is real), scrambling to survive until SS kicked in. Of course that won't cover the bills because I was a wage slave all my life, and because I was never paid enough to save for retirement, I now have to work part time to make ends meet. Yeah, life in America is great. Work your ass off for decades, live in poverty pretty much the entire time. I wish I'd moved overseas when I was still young enough for adventure. I'd be doing a lot better these days.

Huckabee acts just plain hysterical.  I think the old boy needs to go for a long rest somewhere.

Hackers take down New York Magazine

The reason given by the hackers is odd. Here the women are brave enough to share their story.

"New York magazine’s website was taken down, apparently by hackers trying to silence it, just hours after publishing the accounts of 35 women who say they were raped by Bill Cosby.

A group of hackers going by the name VikingDom2016 took credit for the attack, though it was not possible to confirm if they were responsible. Reached on Twitter, a representative for the group offered various motivations for taking down the magazine’s website.

“Want to know a top reason?” the person, who goes by the name ThreatKing, said. “We know one of them females in the cover.”

+Shaker Cherukuri even if that's the case they should've exposed her story instead of blindly bringing the article and site down.

Good post all parents should read it. The peer pressure, pressure of the parents, society's influence all adds up to the students' problems.
 
‘It’s nice to have the freedom not to know.’ Kathryn DeWitt
Who are these parents? Driving their children to a perfection mommy and daddy never attained. There are many forms of child abuse, your children are not your life do-over, they are not yours at all, they are theirs.
She had put on her Penn Face. But living up to expectations was just too much. Dying seemed the only way out. It wasn’t.

+Chris Veerabadran sometimes there is hope. It comes in the form of a caring teacher or a kind neighbour. Resilience can be learned if someone will teach.

What is wrong in speaking more than one language? Every European I speak to know how to speak more than one language. The employee is just following the rule asked her and friend to pay for the additional hour, she goes ballistic.

Sea slaves

When you see pet foods from Thailand this is what you get.
Men who have fled servitude on fishing boats recount beatings and worse as nets are cast for the catch that will become pet food and livestock feed.

Economic punishment is often the most effective type.  Too bad it can't prevent this behavior.

This will make you furious that people are more helpful to a drug addict than single homeless father who just want a few bucks to feed his hungry daughter.

As poor as I am I will always buy a homeless person a sandwich and water. If they have a dog I get petfood.

I don't care about me. If I eat beans at the end of the month, I still have a house to live in. Love All.
