This seems to be the new trend in a lot of stores. Why take your kids to the playground when you canRead More let them play in the store. You go to Ikea and the kids are jumping on the beds, running around the racks. Go grocery shopping and you have little children pushing little cars half filled with food items, racing down the aisle and around the corner, ramming the cart into the back of your legs and then have mom laugh. The parents think it's a hoot. Parents letting their children eat crackers and then leave the empty box on the shelf. Go to Home Depot and the children are climbing to the top of the much bags (it had to be 15 feet off the ground). Guess who's going to get sued if the little kiddies gets hurt? None of the stores want to say anything because they might lose a customer. Or worse someone will call the local news and give a one side rendition of what happened. That being said I really don't know what happened in this casr but it feels good to vent. Thanks for listening.

According to foodsafteynews.com the problem was with a filthy Wawona packing plant. After the plantRead More was cleaned there was no more Listeria present on any fruit. So why does this this article start with the word Organic?

Kara, the headline reads "Organic Fruit Sold Locally Recalled for Possible ListeriaRead More Contamination". It's clearly sensationalizing the two organic products.

Thomas that information is not the report. That is old news, not new news. Did you actually readRead More any of that report? It said how Obama put forth his executive action in January 2013 and directed the CDC and other federal agencies to begin identifying the most pressing research problems in fire arm related violence and start identifying questions that would define a public health research agenda for fire arm violence prevention and intervention. They are talking about a 3-5 year research study. The information you were quoting is not new information. Again, I ask, how could this study have been done in 5 months time and be considered comprehensive? Those websites you follow are snowing you.
tom July 24, 2014 at 04:15 am
What a conversational waste of time. Whatever the "facts" are surrounding theRead More "report", the simple fact is this is a microcosm of the full "agenda" to ban firearms. This is a broad based misinformation leg geared toward attempting to link firearms and their usage with some vague psychological malady. The simple fact that this conversation is being maintained IS the goal of this....to keep this ridiculous conversation in the forefront of public discussion....a form of deflection.

In Woodbury it is the stress of the property values decreasing and the ever increasing of taxes.Read More People can not afford their taxes now. This years shell game, the First Selectman and the BOF Chair want everyone to believe that only 40% of the taxpayers taxes are going up. 40% increase in stress in those people's lives. Don't worry though the First Selectman and the BOF Chair have stated that no ones taxes are going up. ??? It's called talking out of both sides of your mouth. Tell the voters whatever they want to hear to get the budget passed. The voters have another chance to VOTE DOWN the proposed budget on the 23rd. Remember VOTE YES FOR HIGHER TAXES.

Hi everyone here. What Christine Coleman said is very true though i may not know her. I experiencedRead More it first hand also. It was this organization called consumer loan firm (C.L.f)that really helped me to pay my medical bills when i was in dare need of money because i am a widow. A friend of my also directed me to them. when i was about to do a major operation and i had no money at that time, they came to my rescue and in less than 48 hours, i got my loan. But to say the truth, i was nervous and scared at first because i have been scammed twice. But when i summoned up courage and follow their lending policies along with my friends advice, at the end i found myself smiling. If not for them, maybe i would have been dead by now. I have even taken another loan from them start my business after my recovery which i am also paying back now. My only advice now is that any body who is really in need of loan should contact them with their email via: consumerloanfirm@gmail.com and get a loan from them. Thanks
This guy deserves his bad reputation.

This is BS and political game playing. There are already multiple laws in place to ensure fair payRead More for women, minorities, etc. This is a stupid game, playing on people's emotions and not logic. There is very little in the way of a pay gap between men and women, except possibly at the CEO level, where there is probably not an equal representation of women. But that gets into cultural values, gender values. It is complicated. The surveys are a lie, because they combine many different job levels. I have designed, participated in and purchased many salary surveys over the course of 25 years. The good purchased surveys cost a lot of money, because they were carefully constructed, not just separated out on the basis of gender and combining all levels of jobs.
Bobbie July 23, 2014 at 11:10 pm
BS? Judy, you have to be kidding or ignorant. This is happening. And far more realistic thanRead More company promoted surveys. Totally self serving. Woman have for years been earning less than their male counterparts for years. "Francine Blau, an award winning labor economist at Cornell who has published widely on gender and the workplace: Way back in the 1950s, women earned around 60 percent on average of what men earned when working year-round full time. And it stayed right around at that level until about 1980. Then, particularly in the decade of the 80s, there was really considerable progress in narrowing the gender pay gap. Since then, there's been further progress, but it's been a little bit more fitful, a little less consistent. So in 1980, that figure was 60 percent. In 1990 it was 72 percent. In 10 years, that was quite a change. In 2000, it was 73 percent. And now it's about 77 percent. It bounces around year to year."
Judy Davidson July 24, 2014 at 06:30 am
You are basing your ideas on something you've read published by someone you don't know, more thanRead More likely. I am basing my opinion on 25 years of experience in Human Resources, setting salary ranges, recruiting, hiring. NO ONE ever told me to hire a woman at a lower rate than a man. Hiring ranges and salary offers were based on the person's experience. I was not talking about company published surveys. Companies don't publish surveys of that kind, and if they did - I would have been the person designing and creating it. Yes, this whole gender pay gap is BS, because it is based on "survey data" that is not put together properly.
