  • Trump Says Ilhan Omar Should Go Back to Africa: ‘You Can’t Leave Fast Enough’

    President Donald Trump referenced Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) in a series of posts that literally urged the freshman congresswoman to go back to Africa. On Sunday morning, Trump referenced the recent tension between Speaker of the House Nancy Pelosi and the four freshman Democrats who voted against the House version of a border bill — Omar, Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI), Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY), and Rep. Ayanna Pressley (D-MA). “So interesting to see ‘Progressive’ Democrat Congresswomen, who originally came from countries whose governments are a complete and total catastrophe, the worst, most corrupt and inept anywhere in the world (if...
  • N.J.’s paid family leave program is about to pay out much more

    New Jersey’s paid family leave program may soon soon be expanded big-time, which means you would get paid more for taking time off from your job while caring for a newborn or ill family member. A bill to beef up paid family leave is now Gov. Phil Murphy’s desk after it was passed by both houses of the Democratic-controlled Legislature on Thursday. The program, which covers those who work in New Jersey, is one of just a few in the country. But labor advocates for years have argued it does not reimburse workers enough for wages they lose by taking...

Listen to his reasons, then comment. Thanx. ...... Goodbye, America. For as long as I’ve lived you’ve been my only home. I’ve had a wonderful life here. Your inhabitants are almost universally kind, and I’ve become lifelong friends with many of your citizens. All of my family lives here, everyone I have ever known or loved, and I will miss them all a lot. But after 22 years, I feel impelled to...

    Julianne Benzel, a teacher at Rocklin High School, asked students if school administrators would permit an anti-abortion protest, gets placed on administrative leave as a consequence A California high school teacher has been placed on leave after she wondered if her school would permit an organized walkout to protest abortion. According to CBS Sacramento, Rocklin High School’s Julianne Benzel said all she did was have a conversation with her class last Thursday and Friday about the “politics of protest” — a lesson ahead of yesterday’s school walkouts. However, this seems to have angered some students and their parents. Benzel said...

    'It's just bizarre. I told my daughter not to turn it in' Roy High School teacher Candace Thurgood says she has been giving the same “Know Thyself” quiz to students in her “Adult Roles and Financial Literacy” class for years without complaint, but the questionnaire first published in a 1981 Dear Abby column is not playing so well this year. Thurgood was removed from the classroom and placed on leave from Utah’s Weber School District after parents learned of the class exercise where respondents are asked about their sexual histories and drug and alcohol abuse. The 30 questions are scored...

    Washington (AFP) - The US State Department on Thursday ordered the family members of its embassy staff in Caracas to leave Venezuela and authorized the voluntary departure of its employees as a political crisis appeared headed for a dangerous showdown. Its advisory also warned citizens against traveling to the South American country "due to social unrest, violent crime, and pervasive food and medicine shortages." The move came as the embattled government of President Nicolas Maduro was on a deadly collision course with the opposition, which defied a government ban to hold a nationwide strike ahead of a controversial weekend vote.

    It’s that time of the month and all you want to do is stay in bed. If you are a woman employed in Italy, you might soon get to do that if you can prove you suffer from painful periods. The Italian parliament is considering a bill that would require employers grant women three days of paid leave every month, according to the Washington Post. To qualify for menstrual leave, the Post said, women would need a certificate from a medical specialist. The bill, which says that between 60 and 90 per cent of women suffer from painful periods, was...

    The Guardian ^ | 5 July 2016 | Angela Monaghan
    The pound sank to a fresh 31-year low against the dollar on Wednesday amid growing signs that the shock Brexit vote is already damaging the UK economy. Sterling hit a low of $1.2796 at one point as investors lost confidence in Britain’s future outside the European Union and piled out of the UK currency. The last time the pound was lower was in June 1985, but it has still got a way to fall before hitting its all time low against the dollar of $1.0520, struck on 1 March 1985. Sterling has plunged almost 15% since a poll published on...

    LONDON (Reuters) - Britain's vote to leave the European Union is a triumph for Nigel Farage, the abrasive anti-immigration politician who tapped into a deep well of popular anger that rivals failed to understand. On a night that seemed to start badly for the leader of the UK Independence Party (UKIP), with the last opinion polls predicting defeat for the Leave camp in Thursday's referendum, Farage said at first it looked like Remain would win. But it ended with victory for him and on Friday morning he declared jubilantly that the vote for a British exit from the EU, or...

    DAILY MAIL COMMENT: If you believe in Britain, vote Leave. Lies, greedy elites and a divided, dying Europe - why we could have a great future outside a broken EU Throughout this long and often acrimonious referendum campaign, the most striking fact about the Remainers is that they have failed to articulate a single positive reason for staying in the EU. Instead, they have subjected voters to a barrage of scaremongering, with the aid of a once proudly independent Civil Service, pinning all their hopes on persuading the British people that the dangers of withdrawing from Brussels outweigh the many...

    (CNSNews.com) - In a weekly address celebrating Mother’s Day, President Barack Obama on Saturday called for paid “paternity leave.” He also said: “let’s give mothers the respect they deserve.” “Giving flowers is always a good idea,” Obama said. “But I hope that on this Mother’s Day, we’ll recommit ourselves to doing more than that: Through deeds that match our words, let’s give mothers the respect they deserve, give all women the equality they deserve, and give all parents the support they need in their most important roles.”

    San Francisco became the first place in the country Tuesday to require businesses to provide fully paid leave for new parents in what was hailed as the latest move to address income inequality in the nation. The measure approved unanimously by the Board of Supervisors will give new mothers and fathers six weeks of fully paid time off, a rarity now offered to some government sector workers and some private employees, particularly those who work in the tech industry. […] The measure requires another formal vote by the board next week as well as approval by Mayor Ed Lee, who...

    A civil servant in southern Spain failed to turn up at the office for six years but no-one noticed and he still collected his salary each month, it has emerged. The long-term absenteeism of Joaquín García, an engineer employed by the municipal water company in Cádiz, was only discovered when he was considered for an award for performing 20 years of loyal service. The case emerged this week after a court ordered him to pay a fine of €27,000 for his prolonged absence, a figure that amounted to less than one year of his annual €37,000 salary, the maximum that...
