Elena J. Quintero's insight:

TB is really not something that is common in today's world. This for remote places. More frequently there is always some sort of disease that we need to be keep up with. In this particular case I can not place blame on the bartenders or employees. This is something that all parties (employees and customers) need to be accountable for. Who know where you pick up any type of airborne disease. Wash your hands, be more cautious of those around you coughing too much and if they cough or sneeze into their hands.

Every year there is something new to watch out for from west nile to the swine flu. However I don't think it's to say its the bar owners fault as one of its employees or patrons could have easily spread the virus as it is spread through the air and not by unsanitary conditions,
Angie Hidalgo's curator insight, April 25, 2014 10:48 PM

I believe all the owners and managers from the bars need to build more conscious about this matter because it is very dangerous to all their clients.

No, You Can’t Check if That Job Applicant Has a Criminal History

No, You Can’t Check if That Job Applicant Has a Criminal History | Law | Scoop.it
A job hopeful might have an arrest record, but employers can’t find out until after making a job offer. It’s just one of many bills nationwide rolling back criminal background checks.

Interesting developments in the Hiring Process. 

Elena J. Quintero's comment, April 26, 2014 11:10 PM
Unfortunately in the world that we leave in we really should be doing all sorts of background checks. From a future employee to a potential tent who wants to rent an apartment. It is sad but I would want to know that the co-worker next to me is of sound mind and not going to go postal because of a past. Not judgmental but just looking out for my own safety or that of a family members.
Tatiana Monsalve's comment, April 27, 2014 1:45 PM
This is extremely just outrageous, maybe just my opinion. I understand where Wantwaz Davis is coming from, wanting a better life for himself after being in jail for 19 years. This doesn't apply to all cases, most people do not change. If they really are willing to change, then they are going to have to work hard to prove that. In my eyes, I don't think they deserve that job so easily, I don't agree in Davis making it harder for employees to find out about their past. They have to think about other people's safety in the workplace. Why would they commit the crime in the first place? They knew it was wrong, they knew it came with consequences, they knew it was going to be harder for them. So I think, by committing that certain crime, they've accepted to deal with it all. Maybe they can start with part time jobs, make their way up somehow, by proving that they aren't going to commit that crime again. Imagine if one day something sets them off, who's going to be in trouble? I definitely wouldn't want to be standing next to someone like that. Not being judgmental like Elena said, just looking out for my safety .

Has GM pulled a Pinto?

Has GM pulled a Pinto? | Law | Scoop.it
In the late 1960s, a charismatic vice president at Ford Motor Co. decided to bring out a low-priced car that could be produced for little money while bringing in huge profits. The executive's name was Lee Iacocca , and the Ford Pinto he championed became one of the most infamous models in U.S. automotive history. Why? Because to save money, Ford released a car that could explode in even low-speed rear-end collisions.

Not nice GM.  You definitely pulled a Ford Pinto.  GM who is a conglomerate in the car industry should really know better than to pull a stunt as this one.  I wish them luck in trying  to recover from this.

Wow! I don't think it's right to not open the market to those engineers that have worked with these companies and give them the opportunity to go and work else where. If Google for instance wants to hire an Apple an Engineer because they have seen this employees work and would like to have them on their team. Why not?! Isn't this agains the law?

Former Chipotle Worker Claims She Was Fired For Taking Time To Heal After Abusive Situation

A former New York City Chipotle worker is suing the Mexican eatery, claiming she was fired from her job because she took time off to recover from an abusive situation involving her boyfriend. She s...

Laura Barrio's comment, April 25, 2014 12:18 AM
Since the article is only able to show the employee's side of the situation because Chipotle refuses to make a comment, my first impression is that although she was injured, she might have taken too much time off that did not coincide with the company's standards for injured time off. Since she was no injured at work, it is tricky to know how much time is appropriate to be given off, even with a doctor's note. She could have taken advantage of time off (which could have been paid or not), and when she returned, it was grounds for termination under corporate standards. The manager saying that she had "too many outside issues" is not grounds for dismissal, so he might have given her more insight on why she was fired, but since Chipotle is not commenting, it is hard to determine if it was unjust or not.
Elena J. Quintero's comment, April 26, 2014 11:15 PM
Simply put this is discrimination. Her personal life outside of the office should not be considered in the office. Chipotle is evening stating that it has nothing to do with her performance. I think that the employee should sue Chipotle.

It seems about as absurd as suing a photographer for selling pictures of the Chrysler Building in New York. Oh wait, that's happened.

After reading the article, Heigl does have a good case. Recently Obama had the same thing happen where an athlete took a picture of the two of them with his Samsung phone and later used it against Obama without is knowledge as an advertisement for Samsung. This is the same situation. Heigl could win this lawsuit because she didn't authorize the picture for advertising purposes. However, I'm not sure the case is worth 6 million, but I do think that she has a chance in winning the case.
Elena J. Quintero's comment, April 26, 2014 5:17 PM
I would say that Katherine has a good case on her hands. Not absurd at all. The photographer should have requested consent before the selling of the pictures.
