DUPAGE COUNTY STATE’S ATTORNEY
— County Moves to Close Alleged Adult Business in Wheaton
https://www.dupageco.org/States_Attorney/States_Attorney_News/2019/60188/
(FROM THE PRESS RELEASE: DuPage County State’s Attorney Robert Berlin and DuPage County Board Chairman Dan Cronin announced today that DuPage County has filed a lawsuit against Hot Shots Photography Studio, located at 0N758 Gary Avenue, Wheaton, alleging that the business has been operating as an adult business and not as a photography studio as advertised. This morning, the State’s Attorney’s Office filed a verified complaint for injunctive relief and zoning violations against Hot Shots, alleging violations of the DuPage County Zoning Ordinance and state statutes regarding the location of adult entertainment facilities and adult business uses. The lawsuit alleges that Hot Shots advertised on adult websites commonly used to advertise adult escort services by placing personal ads that included a telephone number to call for escort services. The suit alleges that respondents to the ad would be screened by an employee of Hot Shots and then directed to the Gary Avenue location. The lawsuit further alleges that once a respondent entered Hot Shots they were charged $100 as a cover fee and then directed to a room where the respondent would be met by an employee of Hot Shots who would discuss services and payment, with payment “ranging from $500 to $1,500.” The suit further alleges that after receiving payment, employees of Hot Shots would then engage in sexual activity with the respondent. In November, 2018, the DuPage County Sheriff’s Office began an undercover investigation into potential illegal activity and/or prostitution occurring at Hot Shots. The alleged findings of the investigation, according to the suit, “cause Hot Shots to be defined as an adult business use as defined in the DuPage County Zoning Ordinance, and thus constitutes a basis by which that use violates the ordinance.” Additionally, the suit alleges that “the business operations of Hot Shots are such that a significant or substantial portion of such operations involve an activity distinguished or characterized by its emphasis on matters depicting, describing or relating to specified sexual activities.”)

https://www.newsweek.com/fox-news-threaten-juan-williams-hosts-fight-criticize-trump-michael-cohen-1347977
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Fox News discussion of Michael Cohen’s testimony devolved into host Greg Gutfeld threatening to throw co-host Juan Williams off the set for criticizing the GOP’s poor defense of the president. The Five co-host Williams is frequently the lone dissenting voice against the show’s pro-President Donald Trump panels. Wednesday’s show became particularly tense after a red-faced Gutfeld demanded that Williams stop speaking negatively about the president and House Republicans or “I’m going to throw you off the set.” The breakdown occurred after Williams accused Gutfeld and co-host Jesse Watters of being “deep in the bunker,” which Gutfeld took as an Adolf Hitler reference.)

MARKET WATCH
— Improved Social Security COLA would help seniors stay ahead of inflation A more generous policy would keep more older Americans out of poverty – MAX RICHTMAN
https://www.marketwatch.com/story/improved-social-security-cola-would-help-seniors-stay-ahead-of-inflation-2019-02-28

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Retirees across America consistently tell us that their annual COLAs simply are not adequate. And they have a reason to be concerned. Though the 2019 COLA is a decent 2.8%, these adjustments historically have not kept pace with seniors’ rising expenses. In fact, for three of the past 10 years there were no cost-of-living increases — zero. In 2017, the COLA was a scant 0.3% — or a meager $4 a month for the average beneficiary. Simply put, retirees need a COLA that accurately reflects the effects of inflation on their cost of living. The current index, the CPI-W, is pegged to urban wage earners’ living expenses, and tends to underestimate what seniors spend on big ticket items like housing and medical care. By the same token, retirees purchase less gasoline than working-age Americans, even though the cost of gas figures prominently into the current inflation index. As the Center for Retirement Security explains, “In 2016, retirees received no COLA specifically because the cost of oil plummeted. The low cost of gasoline offset [actual inflation] in other areas.” Fortunately, a better formula exists. It’s called the Consumer Price Index for the Elderly — or CPI-E — based on a ‘basket’ of goods and services that reflects older Americans’ spending patterns. The CPI-E just got a big boost from Congressman John Larson (D-Conn.), who included it in his bill to expand retirement benefits, The Social Security 2100 Act. “Seniors have been seeing rises in food…housing, and medical costs, without always receiving adequate increases in the COLA. We must do better and work toward a comprehensive solution,” Congressman Larson said.)

https://abc7chicago.com/politics/mayoral-race-shows-change-has-arrived-political-expert-says/5160143/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: And perhaps no community more than Chicago’s LGBTQ members celebrated as intensely with Tuesday’s outcome – the advent of a pair of African American women now vying for Chicago’s top spot. It brought a smile to the face of Rick Garcia. He started Equality Illinois a generation ago, seeking simple non-discrimination laws to protect the LGBTQ community. “All of the hard work, of many people over decades, came to fruition because both of these candidates,” he said. “One is lesbian and one has a strong record on LGBTQ rights. We haven’t seen that in a long time. There’s always somebody there who isn’t just with the community.” That undeniable political muscle was on display especially as you look the vote totals in wards 44, 46, 48 and 49 where the LGBTQ community is well represented, and had higher than average voter turnout — signaling again that they — with the African-American community — ought to have outsized roles in determining whether Toni Preckwinkle or Lori Lightfoot becomes the next mayor of Chicago.)

CRAIN’S CHICAGO BUSINESS
— Here’s how much more south suburban homeowners pay in taxes Property tax rates in the south suburbs are about twice what they are in western and north suburbs. We looked at comparably priced homes in several locations to see what that means in the dollars a homeowner pays. – DENNIS RODKIN (DIERSEN: How much value has your home lost? How much have your real estate taxes gone up?)
https://www.chicagobusiness.com/residential-real-estate/heres-how-much-more-south-suburban-homeowners-pay-taxes
(FROM THE ARTICLE: A home in south suburban Flossmoor sold last week for about 50 percent below what the sellers paid for it in 2006, a common enough story in Chicago’s slowly rising real estate market. Here’s what’s not so common: In that same stretch of 12 years, the home’s property tax bill went up by 40 percent. The dollar amounts are different—the sale price of the house on Braeburn Avenue went down by more than $500,000, while the taxes went up $6,700 between the 2006 and 2018 tax bills. But the criss-cross paths of prices and property taxes, with one going down while the other goes up, is a painful truth of the Chicago housing market that is most acute in the south Cook County suburbs. Tax rates in south Cook County municipalities are, on average, about twice those in western and northern towns. “The taxes are outrageous,” said Felicia Johnson, the D’aprile Properties agent who represented the buyers. “They’re absolutely the reason it was on the market so long. It’s a beautiful house. It’s gorgeous.”)

— Walmart is getting rid of greeters, worrying those with disabilities – AP (DIERSEN: What has caused you to worry? During the 1980s and 1990s, the Democrats who ran GAO got rid of their employees who were Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran who they had not promoted to GS-13 (currently $96,403) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $113,920) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $134,000) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $164,200) by age 40. That worried me because my Democrat GAO superiors a) had forced me to take a $19,203 (26%) pay cut in today’s dollars, that is, a downgrade from GS-12 Step 5 to GS-9 Step 10, to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980 when I was 31 years old, b) had kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 (1986-1988) of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, c) had gotten rid of my mentor in 1987 who had hired me, gotten me assigned to audits of IRS in 1986, and promoted me in 1986, d) had not promoted me beyond GS-13, e) had always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, and f) had given me unfair performance expectations and appraisals. They forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old.)

https://www.wsj.com/articles/employees-pushed-to-keep-learning-new-skills-as-workplace-evolves-11551279600
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Lifelong learning has become a mantra in American corporations as employees face pressure to stay relevant in a rapidly evolving workplace. Employers, politicians and educators are hammering the message that people need to continuously upgrade their skills because of advancing technologies. Even companies that invest in employee training expect workers to figure out their future career path, and some want workers to retrain themselves on their own time and dime. “We’ve put huge emphasis on shifting responsibility to the individual,” said Tim Munden, who oversees employee training as chief learning officer at Unilever PLC, which provides employees with resources such as online classes. “There’s no way on earth we can send people to enough training courses to make the shift we need to adapt to the world around us. People need to take that on themselves.” Employers say the self-starter model offers better odds that people will take initiative to keep themselves employable by absorbing skills they’re actually interested in. But self-directed learning can be a heavy lift for workers in an economy where the signals are difficult even for experts to parse, said Andy Van Kleunen, chief executive of the National Skills Coalition.)

CBS ALBANY
— You Paid For It: Pricey cars gathering dust – Greg Floyd
https://cbs6albany.com/news/local/you-paid-for-it-government-vehicles-sitting-unused
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Some ritzy rides that you are paying for are sitting idle. A handful of taxpayer funded cars have normally been provided to some senior members of the NYS Senate. This year there is a twist – the Democrats who are now in control of the Senate don’t want the cars. We found the five expensive cars tucked away deep under the Empire State Plaza, covered in dust. There are two top of the line Ford Taurus Limiteds, and one 2017 Ford Explorer Limited, the priciest of the Explorers. There is a 2017 Chevy Tahoe Premier, again a top of the line vehicle. There is also one other older Tahoe. These cars were all purchased when Republicans controlled the Senate, but now the Democrats have grounded these cars. Democratic Senator David Carlucci says just because something has been done a certain way for years, that doesn’t mean the practice has to continue. Even many rank and file Republicans say they have concerns about the purchase of the pricey cars.)

Far too many of them blame me and my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails for their problems, for your problems, for my problems, and for everyone’s problems. Far too many of them a) do NOT keep [email protected] on their press advisory and press release lists, b) do NOT want me to know about their press conferences and other events and activities, c) do NOT want me to promote their events and other activities, d) do NOT want me to attend their press conferences and other events, e) do NOT want me to ask questions at their press conferences and other events, f) do NOT want me to speak with other reporters or anyone else at their press conferences and other events, and g) do NOT want me to report on their press conferences and other events and activities. Far too many of them blame me and my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails for all the losses that Republican candidates have suffered in Illinois since 2000. Far too many of them hint/imply/argue/shout that I am NOT a legitimate reporter or journalist. Far too many of them talk and/or act like they have been advised that the more that you demonize, denigrate, and condemn Diersen and his GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails, the money and votes that you will get.)

DAILY MAIL
— ‘Have you taken a trip to the Hanoi Hilton yet?’ Meghan McCain trolls Trump after president mocks ‘Da Nang Dick’ Blumenthal saying ‘I have now spent more time in Vietnam than him’ – even though both men avoided the war – ARIEL ZILBER (DIERSEN: I should write a book about those who have punished me the most for my seeking and getting a) four student draft deferments 1966-1970 and b) a financial hardship draft deferment 1970-1971. Most of them were my Democrat superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates in the federal government. But some are/were religious, conservative, and Republican activists, candidates, elected officials, party leaders, major donors, and political consultants.)
https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6753589/Meghan-McCain-trolls-Trump-president-mocks-Da-Nang-Dick-Blumenthal-Vietnam-claims.html

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Meghan McCain, co-host of The View and daughter of late Senator John McCain, hit out at President Trump on Wednesday. She reacted to Trump’s tweet in which he mocked Senator Richard Blumenthal of Connecticut. Trump has repeatedly referred to Blumenthal as ‘Da Nang Dick’ over the Democratic senator’s false claims that he served in Vietnam. ‘I have now spent more time in Vietnam than Da Nang Dick Blumenthal,’ Trump tweeted on Wednesday. Meghan McCain replied: ‘Have you taken a trip to the Hanoi Hilton yet?’ The Hanoi Hilton is where her father was held captive by the North Vietnamese after his plane was shot down during the war. Trump has slammed Blumenthal for his claims about serving in Vietnam – even though Trump himself received multiple deferments and avoided service.)

https://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/ct-met-michael-cohen-trump-chicago-20190227-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: In a statement sent to the Washington Post earlier Wednesday, Rudy Giuliani, Trump’s personal attorney, questioned Cohen’s truthfulness. “It’s pathetic. This is a lawyer who (taped) his own client when he claimed he was being loyal. If you believe him, you are a fool,” Giuliani said. “He bragged he was connected to Russian organized crime and he may be. His father-in-law who gave him millions to (invest) was convicted of tax fraud in a money-laundering operation. Let’s see if these Democrats want to ask about his many crimes having nothing to do with anyone but his coterie of business associates with questionable connections.”)

My Democrat GAO superiors forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, gave me unfair performance expectations and appraisals, always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, did not promote me beyond GS-13, got rid of my mentor in 1987, kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and forced me to take a $19,203 (26%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980. My Democrat IRS superiors did not promote me beyond GS-12, disallowed my education deductions in 1978, got rid of my mentor in 1975, and disallowed my partial day per diem claims in 1974. My Democrat Post Office superiors forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968.)

AMERICAN GENIUS
— The top 5 reasons to reject a job offer Don’t make a mistake and accept a job offer you’ll regret – here’s what to look out for. – Dawn Brotherton (DIERSEN: I knew that I would not “fit in” at the Post Office, IRS, and GAO a) because I have always been a conservative Republican, b) because I was a draft avoider, c) because I opposed patronage, political affiliation discrimination, reverse discrimination, and age discrimination, and d) because my other demographics (White, male, Missouri Synod Lutheran, 100% German American, my ancestors have been in America since 1844, American-nameplate car owner, etc.) were terrible. Nevertheless, I accepted job offers from the Post Office, IRS, and GAO because I erroneously counted on “civil service protections” (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/United_States_federal_civil_service) to protect me. Further, the main reason why I accepted the Post Office’s job offer in 1966 was that I needed money to pay for college expenses. Further, the main reason why I accepted IRS’s job offer in 1971 was that I was unemployed and I needed money to help support my mother and brother. Further, the main reason why I accepted GAO’s job offer in 1980 was that my Democrat IRS superiors had made it very clear that they were going to get rid of me.)

IRS hired me in 1971 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job.

ABC7
— Man plans to spend retirement at the Holiday Inn because it’s cheaper (DIERSEN: My 88-year-old aunt is paying $252 per day at an assisted living facility.)
https://abc7chicago.com/society/man-plans-holiday-inn-retirement-because-its-cheaper/5157421/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Robison wrote on Facebook that the average cost of nursing home care is about $188 per day. A long-term stay with a senior discount at Holiday Inn, on the other hand, is $59.23 per day. “That leaves $128.77 a day for lunch and dinner in any restaurant we want, or room service, laundry, gratuities and special TV movies,” he wrote. “Plus, they provide a spa, swimming pool, a workout room, a lounge and washer-dryer, etc.” The benefits of Holiday Inn, Robison added, also include free toothpaste, razors, shampoo and soap. An additional $5 a day in tips will “have the entire staff scrambling to help you” as well, he wrote. “They treat you like a customer, not a patient,” he said. Holiday Inn also provides a spa, swimming pool, gym, lounge and washer-dryers, but the amenities don’t stop there. The location where Robison checked out reservations has a city bus stop right in front, where seniors can ride for free. In addition, guests can “take the airport shuttle bus” to eat at one of the restaurants at the local airport for “a change of scenery,” he wrote. From there, they can take a flight to another Holiday Inn as well, he mused. “You’re not stuck in one place forever — you can move from Inn or Inn, or even from city to city,” he wrote. The competition to find a comfortable room isn’t as steep either, Robison wrote. “It takes months to get into decent nursing homes,” he wrote. “Holiday Inn will take your reservation today.” The maintenance is virtually nonexistent, Robison figured. “TV broken? Light bulbs need changing? Need a mattress replaced? No problem,” Robison wrote. “They fix everything, and apologize for the inconvenience.” Robison did not mention what kind of health he is in, but said staff like a security guard or maid could check to see if he is OK as well as call an ambulance or an undertaker, whichever is needed. “If you fall and break a hip, Medicare will pay for the hip, and Holiday Inn will upgrade you to a suite for the rest of your life,” he wrote, adding that he’d face his “golden age” with “a grin.” A representative for InterContinental Hotels Group, which Holiday Inn is a subsidiary of, did not immediately respond to ABC News’ request for comment.)

— You’ve Come a Long Way, Baby — or Have You? – MICHAEL WALSH (DIERSEN: Were you draft bait? I was draft bait 1966-1971. Employers are extremely reluctant to hire, to retain, or to promote those who are draft bait. I graduated from NIU in August of 1970. During 1970 and 1971, potential employers did not believe that my application for a financial hardship draft deferment to help support my mother and brother would be approved. Consequently, in August of 1970, I took the only job that was offered me, a job that did not really require a college degree.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Venezuelan government briefly detained Jorge Ramos, the star Spanish-language television journalist, during an interview with the country’s embattled president, Nicolas Maduro. Ramos and the Univision News television crew accompanying him were subsequently released. The journalists were detained nearly three hours at Venezuela’s presidential palace after Maduro bristled over Ramos’ questions, a Univision News representative said late Monday. “They have now been released, but their equipment and interview material has been confiscated,” Univision News spokesman Jose Zamora said in an email to The Times. “They will be deported from Venezuela in the morning. It has been a clear attack against freedom of the press.”)

GUARDIAN
— Univision’s Jorge Ramos detained in Venezuela after Maduro interview, network says Anchor, who has reportedly been released, asked question embattled leader did not approve of, according to Univision executive – Joe Parkin Daniels (DIERSEN: If you want to demonize, denigrate, and condemn someone, you call them “combative.” My critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes would call me “combative.”)
https://www.theguardian.com/world/2019/feb/25/jorge-ramos-univision-detained-venezuela-maduro-interview
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The Univision anchor Jorge Ramos has been detained in the Miraflores presidential palace in Caracas, Venezuela, the network announced on Monday evening. The Mexican-born journalist was interviewing Venezuela’s embattled president Nicolás Maduro when he and his crew were detained after asking a question the combative Maduro did not approve of, according to a tweet by the network’s US president, Daniel Coronell. The team’s equipment had also been confiscated, Coronell said. Coronell later said Ramos and his team had been released and he had spoken to the journalist. The equipment as well as the material that upset Maduro were confiscated. Reuters reported that Venezuela was going to deport the group. Ramos told Univision that the offending line of questioning came when he showed Maduro images taken on Ramos’ phone of Venezuelans eating out of the trash to prove people were living a humanitarian crisis. Ramos is arguably the best-known journalist in the Spanish-speaking world. He has gained particular notoriety for regularly locking horns with Donald Trump, who had him ejected from a press conference while on the campaign trail in 2015. The have since sparred over the US president’s proposed border wall among other contentious issues.)

https://uhclthesignal.com/wordpress/2019/02/25/labor-laws-fall-short-for-college-students/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: College students are overworked at part-time jobs. When asked about work complaints, students who were interviewed for this article mentioned their employers didn’t offer breaks, regularly shortened break time, disregarded previous schedule agreements and required them to work shifts less than 12 hours apart. How does this impact a student’s academic success and what can be done to help the current state of labor laws? These conditions may seem unfair or even illegal; however, these issues are completely acceptable under Texas law as Texas does not require that employers offer breaks, strictly stick to agreed work schedules or give workers fair time between shifts. To be clear, the law does require that employees be paid for short breaks throughout the day if the employer chooses to allow them, it does not require them to provide those breaks.)

GOPUSA ILLINOIS
— If you ran for an office, would the Daily Herald endorse you? – Dave Diersen
http://www.gopillinois.com

(THE ARTICLE: From what I see, if I ran for an office, the Daily Herald would not endorse me for the following reasons: I am a Trump supporter, Protestant (baptized, raised, and confirmed as a Missouri Synod Lutheran), conservative, patriotic, Republican, White, male, old (born in 1948), non-poor, gun owner, 100% German American, draft avoider, federal employee for almost 30 years, federal retiree for more than 21 years, childless, pet-less, American-nameplate car owner, and my ancestors have been in America since 1844. The Daily herald would stress that I am no longer a TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois chairman, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee member, Milton Township Republican Central Committee (MTRCC) webmaster, Illinois Center Right Coalition (ICRC) Steering Committee member, or American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter board member. The Daily Herald would stress that ICRC almost censured me in 2006 for my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails and that I lost 69 to 13 when I ran for MTRCC Treasurer in 2004. The Daily Herald would stress a) that GAO hired me in 1980 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, younger person, or veteran who would take the job; b) that IRS hired me in 1971 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job; and c) that the Post Office hired me in 1966 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job. The Daily Herald would stress a) that my Democrat GAO superiors forced me to retire in 1997 when I was 49 years old, gave me unfair performance expectations and appraisals, always ranked me in the bottom half of my coworkers for pay-for-performance purposes, did not promote me beyond GS-13, got rid of my mentor in 1987, kept me off audits of IRS for all but 3 of the almost 18 years that I worked for GAO, and forced me to take a $19,203 (26%) pay cut in today’s dollars to transfer from IRS to GAO in 1980; b) that my Democrat IRS superiors did not promote me beyond GS-12, disallowed my education deductions in 1978, got rid of my mentor in 1975, and disallowed my partial day per diem claims in 1974; and c) that my Democrat Post Office superiors forced me resign in 1969 and disallowed my sick leave requests in 1969 and 1968. The Daily Herald would stress that religious, conservative, and Republican activists, candidates, elected officials, party leaders, major donors, political consultants, etc. in Wheaton, in Glen Ellyn, in Milton Township, in DuPage County, and in Illinois have virtually never come to my defense. The Daily Herald would stress that my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes blame me and my GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails for their problems, for your problems, for my problems, and for everyone’s problems. The Daily Herald would stress the very few times that my rude, condescending, bombastic, nasty, vicious, and threatening critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes have succeeded in getting me to raise my voice. The Daily Herald would stress the lawsuits that I have filed. The Daily Herald would hint/imply/argue/shout that because of the aforesaid, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes hint/imply/argue/shout that I am a White supremacist, Nazi, KKK member, hater, racist, sexist, bigot, and even worse things who should be gotten rid of once and for all.)

WALL STREET JOURNAL
— FBI’s Most Wanted: More Applicants for Special Agents Tight labor market has forced the bureau to double down on recruitment efforts; CEOs, physicists and school therapists are encouraged to apply – Aruna Viswanatha and Byron Tau (DIERSEN: GAO hired me in 1980 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, younger person, or veteran who would take the job. IRS hired me in 1971 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job. The Post Office hired me in 1966 because it could not find a qualified Democrat, minority, female, or veteran who would take the job. Democrats run the federal government. Since the 1960s, to hire, to retain, and to promote young Democrat minorities and young females, the federal government has constantly lowered its hiring, retention, and promotion requirements and made them more subjective. For example, passing the CPA examination is no longer a requirement for many positions.)
https://www.wsj.com/articles/fbis-most-wanted-more-applicants-for-special-agents-11551023975

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The FBI has thus far been able to maintain its hiring levels despite the slump, agency officials said. But there is also a growing recognition that the traditional enticement of FBI employment isn’t as strong as it once was. “The way that government recruits people is they give you more interesting work, particularly more interesting work at a more youthful point in your career,” said Michael German, a former FBI agent who is now a fellow at the Brennan Center for Justice. But as competition for applicants has increased, more employers are offering qualified candidates attractive work opportunities—often at much higher pay levels than starting FBI salaries. Adding to the FBI’s recruitment challenge is a consistently high demand for new applicants in part because of the bureau’s mandatory retirements—agents are required to retire at 57, and can collect pensions after 20 years of service. The challenges have prompted the FBI to overhaul its entire recruiting process over the past six months, Mr. Sursi said. Recent changes include reducing applicants’ previous work requirements from three years to two; keeping in touch with applicants throughout the process to address concerns; reaching out to those who had started but never finished applications; and allowing applicants to continue an application process even if they don’t immediately meet fitness requirements—even offering training guidance to help applicants hit required strength and speed goals.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Pay-for-Performance The Pay Agent also highlighted a common theme: Pay-for-Performance. This observation is also in the introduction of the Pay Agent Report: “[W]e believe in the need for fundamental reforms of the white-collar Federal pay system. We believe it is imperative to develop performance-sensitive compensation systems that will contribute to a Government that is more citizen-centered, results-oriented, and market-based. We need to empower Federal agencies to better manage, develop, and reward employees in order to better serve the American people.”)

ATLANTIC
— These Are the Americans Who Live in a Bubble  A significant minority seldom or never meet people from another race, and they prize sameness, not difference. – EMMA GREEN (DIERSEN: Have you lived in a bubble? I have not. One could argue that the longer that you have lived, the more places that you have lived, the more municipalities that you have worked in, the more employers that you have worked for, the more organizations that you have been active in, the more college degrees that you have earned, the more schools that you have attended, and the more attention that you pay to current government and political news and commentary, the less that you live have lived in a bubble. I have lived in Illinois for more than 70 years. I have lived in Wheaton for almost 41 years. I lived in Chicago full-time for 2 years and part-time for 2 years before that. I lived in University Park part-time for 2 years and full-time for 2 years before that. I lived in Crete for 24 years before that. I worked in Chicago, Harvey, Joliet, Chicago Heights, and Park Forest. I worked for GAO for almost 18 years, for IRS for almost 9 years, for Firestone Stores for 2 1/2 years, for the Post Office for almost 3 years, and for S.S. Kresges for 1 1/2 years. I have been active in the Milton Township Republican Central Committee for more than 19 years. I was active in TAPROOT Republicans of Illinois, Wheaton Chamber of Commerce Government Affairs Committee, Illinois Center Right Coalition, American Association of Political Consultants Midwest Chapter, and Association of Government Accountants Chicago Chapter. I have earned degrees from IIT, DePaul, Loyola, and NIU. I attended UIC. I graduated from Crete-Monee High School and from Hope Lutheran Grade School in Park Forest. I attended Trinity Lutheran Grade School in Crete. I have been the GOPUSA Illinois Editor for 19 years. I spend 10+ hours each and every day researching the internet and newspapers for articles of interest to Illinois Republicans.)
https://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2019/02/americans-remain-deeply-ambivalent-about-diversity/583123/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Most Americans do not live in a totalizing bubble. They regularly encounter people of different races, ideologies, and religions. For the most part, they view these interactions as positive, or at least neutral. Yet according to a new study by the Public Religion Research Institute (PRRI) and The Atlantic, a significant minority of Americans do not live this way. They seldom or never meet people of another race. They dislike interacting with people who don’t share their political beliefs. And when they imagine the life they want for their children, they prize sameness, not difference. Education and geography seemed to make a big difference in how people think about these issues, and in some cases, so did age.)

— Income inequality is rising so fast that economic data can’t keep up – Christopher Ingraham
https://www.chicagotribune.com/business/national/ct-biz-income-inequality-economics-20190221-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Nevertheless, the available data paints a clear picture of broadening disparities between top earners and everyone else. Adjusted for inflation, wages for the top 5 percent of earners rose from $50.46 an hour in 2000 to $63.10 in 2018, an increase of 25 percent. The median worker’s hourly wage, meanwhile, rose by 7 percent over that period, to $18.80. The divide was particularly stark among men: The wages of the top 5 percent of male workers rose by 42 percent from 2000 to 2018, while those of the median male worker rose by 0.8 percent. One way to capture that dispersion is to look at the ratio between wages at the top and wages at the middle. In 2000, for instance, the top 5 percent of workers earned 2.87 times as much, per hour, as the typical, or median, worker. By 2018, that ratio had increase to 3.36. Among men only, the ratio between the top 5 percent and the median increased from 2.83 to 3.98. However, there was little change in wage variation at the bottom of the distribution: The median worker earned roughly twice as much as the bottom 10 percent of workers in 2000 and 2018, among all workers and among men only.)

— Women May Have to Register for the Draft as Men’s Group Wins Selective Service Lawsuit – TYLER O’NEIL (DIERSEN: Were you draft bait? I was draft bait 1966-1971. Employers are extremely reluctant to hire, to retain, or to promote those who are draft bait. I graduated from NIU in August of 1970. During 1970 and 1971, potential employers did not believe that my application for a financial hardship draft deferment to help support my mother and brother would be approved. Consequently, in August of 1970, I took the only job that was offered me, a job that did not really require a college degree.)
