    Trump Mocks Bob Corker’s Height, Escalating Feud with a Key Republican
    OCT. 10, 2017

    WASHINGTON — President Trump escalated his attack on Senator Bob Corker on Tuesday by ridiculing him for his height, even as advisers worried that the president was further fracturing his relationship with congressional Republicans just a week before a vote critical to his tax cutting plan.

    Mr. Trump gave Mr. Corker, a two-term Republican from Tennessee and chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, a derogatory new nickname — “Liddle Bob” — after the two exchanged barbs in recent days. He suggested Mr. Corker was somehow tricked when he told a reporter from The New York Times that the president was reckless and could stumble into a nuclear war.

    In labeling Mr. Corker “liddle,” the president was evidently returning to a theme. He considered Mr. Corker for secretary of state during the transition after last year’s election but was reported to have told associates that Mr. Corker, at 5-foot-7, was too short to be the nation’s top diplomat. Instead, Mr. Trump picked Rex W. Tillerson, who is several inches taller but whose own relationship with the president has deteriorated to the point that he was said to have called Mr. Trump a “moron.”

    Chattanooga man loses job after sitting during national anthem
    October 9th 2017

    Tennessee man says that he was fired from his job at a local kickboxing gym because he sat during the national anthem at a weekend event.

    Local news station Fox 17 reports that Tyler Chancellor, who until this week had been an employee at the 9Round gym in Chattanooga, says that he was invited to attend an event at the Camp Jordan arena. During the national anthem, Chancellor chose to stay seated, in solidarity with professional athletes who kneel during the anthem to protest against police brutality against black Americans.

    “Me being a minority in this society, I chose to stand up for what I believe in- well not actually stand up, but sit down for what I believe in,” Chancellor explains to Fox 17.

    Chancellor didn’t realize that he had done anything wrong until Monday, when his boss told him that he was being let go over his decision to sit during the anthem.

    “She said because you sat down, you were a part of a 9Round event, and you sat during the national anthem,” Chancellor says. “We no longer want to continue business with you. There was no sugar coating.”

    Chancellor, who says he comes from a military family, tells Fox 17 that he has no regrets about his decision to sit during the anthem, despite the fact that it cost him his job.

    Trump Says He’ll Keep Many Government Positions Vacant
    October 10, 2017 at 5:23 pm EDT

    President Trump told Forbes that the size of some federal agencies is “unnecessary,” which is why he has left vacant so many positions that would require a presidential appointment.

    Said Trump: “I’m generally not going to make a lot of the appointments that would normally be — because you don’t need them. I mean, you look at some of these agencies, how massive they are, and it’s totally unnecessary. They have hundreds of thousands of people.”

    Professor Placed On Leave Following Threats Over Las Vegas Massacre Tweets
    October 10, 2017 2:30 PM

    PHILADELPHIA (CBS) — A Drexel University professor has been placed on administrative leave after a series of tweets where he suggested mass shootings like the Las Vegas massacre are always carried out by white men because of “white supremacist patriarchy.”

    Last week, George Ciccariello-Maher, who is a tenured associate professor of politics and global studies at Drexel, tweeted, “It’s the white supremacist patriarchy, stupid,” in regards to the Las Vegas shooting.
    […]
    Ciccariello-Maher says the tweet sparked “illegal threats of violence” and Drexel decided to place him on administrative leave for safety reasons.

    Got some interesting employment news today guys.

    Ok…back story, I work of a local hospital (let’s call it Every Job General Hospital). It WAS the last “privately” managed hospital in the NOLA area. In the past they were trying to sell the hospital to a larger local hospital management company (there are now 3 hospital corp in the NOLA area that “owns”/manages the various hospital in the system. The two biggest are 1) LCMC & 2)Oschner systems. The third is HCA hospital systems. In the past their had been bids to acquire EJGH but they fell through due to outside forces. Folks at EJGH had though it was over, but their had always been rumours that EJGH was still looking for a bid and that there was actually an agreement, but all those rumours were proven incorrect at the time they were circulating. Today though, a hospital wide email was sent out with the news that EJGH has accepted a bid of acquisition from the HCA hospital system. The next step is approval of the bill by the Parish Government, but barring some last minute issues, the approval is gonna be likely. So long story short…our little private hospital is soon to be a part of a larger hospital conglomerate.

      B BLESSED♥ :>)

    • lamh

      So what does that mean for me…

      Well, EJGH being a small privately managed hospital, had contracted out a number of their departmental workload, like housekeeping, clerical, laboratory, and even nursing.

      The lab, where I work, is contracted out to a national lab company that manages the lab for EJGHh. We are considered “contracted” EJGH employees, but we are paid and managed by the national lab, who pays our checks and lists us as employees. In the discussions with EJGH, HCA agreed to “absorb” EJGH employees into the system based on seniority, so nurses, nursing assistants, clerical workers, that are actually listed EJGH employees many will likely be able to be absorbed into the new HCA-EJGH system. The same may not be said of the “contract” employees.

      The entire merger/bid/incorporation into HCA is expected to be complete by Feb!
      The contract for the lab ends in 2019. HCA will have to decide whether to honor the contract until then, or break the contract and have to pay off the remainder of the contract, which also includes clauses about “expected loss of revenue” that they will have to pay to the contract company to break the contract.

      So by Feb we will know if we will have to be looking for another company or applying to the new HCA-EJGH or trying to transfer to another Quest lab and becoming a full-fledged Quest employee or if we’ll have until the contract ends

        Oh…I am ABSOLUTELY not interested.

        I don’t want to be a supervisor in a HOSPITAL lab setting. You are too beholden to different doctors proclivities and desires, esp the current place.

        I’d be more interested in a reference lab position…in that case your are NOT beholden to the particular proclivities of different doctors.

    Elijah J. McCoy (May 2, 1844 [2] – October 10, 1929) was a Canadian-American inventor and engineer who was notable for his 57 U.S. patents,
    most having to do with the lubrication of steam engines.
    Born free in
    Canada, he came to the United States as a young child when his family
    returned in 1847, becoming a U.S. resident and citizen.

    Elijah J. McCoy was born free in 1843 or 1844 in Colchester, Ontario, Canada to George and Mildred (Goins) McCoy. They were fugitive slaves who had escaped from Kentucky to Canada via helpers through the Underground Railroad. George and Mildred arrived in Colchester Township, Essex, Ontario Canada in 1837 via Detroit. Elijah McCoy had eleven siblings.– – –

    I also get the argument: “it’ll look good on your resume”

    bleh…resume’…speg-ume’…LOL.

    My resume is pretty darn good already. Besides which as I said…this acquisition IS happening. So the next supervisor will be bogged down with so much rigmarole…you’re just as likely to stroke out as pull your hair out. NOPE…I knows what I’m ready and willing to do… and that AIN’T a situation I have ANY desire to put myself in.

    Besides, there is at least 1 tech who has been w/the organization for like 25 years…longer than the last supe…and she already saying she doesn’t want the hassle/stress and was integral in convincing the current supe to apply for the position years ago…

    So…NOPE…sometimes ya gotta be able to read a room, and the room at this place while ok as a lowly bench tech…is NOT for me to test my supervisory waters!

    I know it should be a stressful announcement. I mean I guess I should be, but I’m not much of a stresser. I know I’ve got at least until Feb and maybe until 2019. So there is time. In fact, the only thing I really need to worry bout is that when I accepted the position, I accepted a 2 year sign own bonus that is split into 2 parts. The 1st part when I started and the 2nd part after my first year. I need to check out that contract to see if there is any language about it. If I don’t have to pay back the first, and I don’t have to worry about the 2nd…and they decide NOT to renew our contracts, then I can start looking for work without the burden of worry about the sign on bonus.

    Still, I find that I’m not stressing

      His knowledge of all things Stevie is impressive (as a number of his past tweets attest).

      This also goes back to what we were talking about when some folks tried to call out Stevie for being political at the concert a couple of weeks ago, and we were like where you been, Stevie’s always been socially conscious.

    – – The family of an unarmed black man fatally shot by a white policeman has filed a federal civil rights lawsuit.
    The lawsuit, which was filed Monday, alleges that Euclid is responsible for practices that led to Officer Matthew Rhodes shooting and killing 23-year-old Luke Stewart in March.

    “They tortured my baby,” said Stewart’s mother, Mary Stewart. “Why? Why did he just take it upon himself just to feel that he could go around killing people like that? It’s just so
    unfair, it’s unreal. I can’t believe it.”

    Rhodes was responding to a report of a suspicious vehicle in Euclid, in suburban Cleveland, when he encountered Stewart sleeping behind the wheel, startling him awake. Rhodes said he opened the passenger door and reached into Stewart’s car to try to push him out when Stewart turned the ignition and started to drive away, prompting Rhodes to jump in. Rhodes said he struggled with Stewart to control the moving car and then shot Stewart because he feared Stewart would crash the car.— –
