    It's one thing to talk about changing allegiance to another country when a new president is elected. It's another thing to go ahead and do it. But that's exactly what seems to be happening, on a small scale, in at least in one distant corner of the world. In New Zealand, the number of Americans who applied for a grant of citizenship rose to 170 in the 12 weeks following the election of President Donald Trump from 100 in the same period a year earlier, immigration records obtained by The Associated Press show.

    It is actually good to have germs in small amounts.  They help inoculate us from bigger sicknesses.  But having too many germs is bad for us. That philosophy applies equally well to lawyers.  Some lawyers are useful, even necessary, such as lawyers who draft wills or contracts between companies or stock offerings (my former profession), federal prosecutors, and those who represent plaintiffs and defendants in legitimate civil lawsuits. But a lot of lawyers do things that are not so good.  In my opinion, the government has too many lawyers.  The lawyers at the EPA and the so-called "civil rights"...
  • Va. governor eliminates criminal history questions on state job applications

    BRISTOL, VA (WJHL) - Applications for state jobs in Virginia will no longer will include questions regarding a person's criminal history. Governor Terry McAuliffe signed an executive order removing criminal history questions from state employment applications Friday. Under the order, employment decisions won't be based on an applicant's criminal history unless it's specifically related to the job they are being considered for. While it only applies to state employment applications, the order also encourages similar hiring practices for private employers throughout the Commonwealth. Some business owners we spoke to in Bristol, Virginia are not on board with the idea.

    One thing you can depend on, Apple is going to pack all kinds of goodies into its technology that offer the potential to transform the functionality of these devices and transform how you communicate with your customers. A case in point is Apple’s Indoor Positioning functionality, which Apple has updated for iOS 8 to provide facility owners with indoor latitude, longitude and floor level via API. To utilize Indoor Positioning in their own app, facility owners will need to survey their facility using Apple tools and upload a map to the Maps Indoor interface. Once that is done, the technology...

    (VIDEO-AT-LINK)NYPD Cop killer Ismaaiyl Brinsley was using a traffic app called Waze to track law enforcement’s movements, NYC Alerts tweeted on Monday. According to an available screenshot, Brinsley was tracking two officers who were almost 4 miles away from him in Staten Island at 10:44 PM EST since the beginning of December. He thanks a friend of his on Instagram for pointing out the app is not “updated in real time” so it’s not that “reliable.”Instagram/Ismaaiyl BrinsleySmartphone applications monitoring police activity have grown in popularity over the past few years due to decreased cost, portability, and accessibility to average citizens....

    The world of technology has changed the way that we think about the work we do. Complete cities have been uprooted by technological changes that have force out entire industries. Detroit, once a huge center of industry, has taken a turn for the worse in recent years thanks to robotics. Where once it took a team of people to build a car, it now only takes a few individuals to regulate the automated builders. The automotive industry has been forever transformed. In the 1990s, there were many individuals who truly thought that the internet was a fad. It wasn’t long...
  • US Unemployment Aid Applications Surge to 368,000

    ABC News ^ | December 12, 2013 | JOSH BOAK
    The number of people seeking U.S. unemployment benefits rose 68,000 last week to a seasonally adjusted 368,000, the largest increase in more than a year. The surge in first-time applications could be a troubling sign if it lasts. But it likely reflects the difficulty adjusting for delays after the Thanksgiving holiday. Economists will track the next few weeks closely to see if that trend is reversing, or if the surge is a temporary blip caused by seasonal adjustments. The recent drop in layoffs has coincided with a pickup in hiring. The economy has added an average of 204,000 jobs a...

    The Associated Press described these applications as having being "started." An administration official I -emailed with this afternoon thought it was more accurate to say these applications had been "submitted," and I found the explanation of why to be helpful in understanding how the whole shopping process works. The 476,000 shoppers that the Associated Press wrote about have submitted full applications, this administration official said. In that sense, they're done with the first step in the process. That being said, they're still at the start of the shopping process, with two more steps between where they are right now, and...

    The dead-tree version of health insurance enrollment is turning out to be surprisingly popular. In the 36 states that make up the federal exchange, paper applications will be reviewed by Reston-based Serco, which received a $1.2 billion contract to hire 1,500 workers to do the work. Timothy S. Jost, a law professor at Washington and Lee University who specializes in health policy, said filling out paper applications does give people the sense that the “process is underway,” he said. But, he added: “It will add to delay. It will add to errors.”

    It's a batting average that won't land the federal marketplace for Obamacare into the Healthcare Hall of Fame. As few as 1 in 100 applications on the federal exchange contains enough information to enroll the applicant in a plan, several insurance industry sources told CNBC on Friday. Some of the problems involve how the exchange's software collects and verifies an applicant's data. "It is extraordinary that these systems weren't ready," said Sumit Nijhawan, CEO of Infogix, which handles data integrity issues for major insurers including WellPoint and Cigna, as well as multiple Blue Cross Blue Shield affiliates. Experts said that...

    The Wisconsin Department of Justice has received more than 20,000 concealed carry applications since the law took effect Tuesday. Data from the state Justice Department show that as of 4 p.m. Friday, 20,476 applications had been submitted. Of those, 879 concealed carry licenses had been approved and 793 had been printed. Also, 117 applications were rejected. Agency spokeswoman Dana Brueck incomplete applicant data, insufficient training documentation or a missing payment are all reasons an application can be rejected. The state has 45 days to issue a license once a valid application is received. Brueck said the Justice Department is working...
  • How Did Occupy D.C. Protesters Respond to a Table Full of Job Applications?

    The Blaze ^ | 11-4-11 | chris santarelli
    The news media watchdog Accuracy in Media (AIM) released a video Wednesday that may denounce the notions from some that the Occupy protesters are primarily concerned with jobs. In it, “head hunters” set up a table full of job applications near the protest and start offering them to protesters. But the reception they get, according to the video, is less than warm. To many, that might seem odd considering the protesters have camped out in our nations capital for over a month following the Occupy Wall Street protest that began on September 17, partly because of no jobs. Accuracy in...
