NEWS CHANNEL 20
— Charges you could face for smoking cannabis around kids – Nikki McGee
https://newschannel20.com/news/local/charges-you-could-face-for-smoking-cannabis-around-kids
(FROM THE ARTICLE: With the legalization of marijuana, law enforcement is warning parents to stay on the side of caution when using it at home. As marijuana’s legalization rolls out, the law is defining where it can and cannot be used. While you can smoke and pose it behind closed doors, rules change if you have children in the house. “You cannot knowingly use in close proximity [around] anyone under 21 years of age,” Illinois “Weed Lawyer” W. Scott Hanken said. Any marijuana kept in your house must also be in a pre-packaged, childproof container and kept out of reach. “It’s not a good idea to expose them to a mind-altering substance and we know there can be secondhand smoke that could be inhaled by the cannabis,” Sangamon County Sheriff Campbell said. “So it’s vital that if the parents are going to partake in this, that they don’t expose their children to it.” Sheriff Campbell said his department already investigates cases where they are tipped off about a child smelling like cannabis and sometimes even meth-making chemicals. It’s something they can take action on. “We would look at the totality of the circumstances and determine whether or not the parent was endangering the life or safety of a child,” Sheriff Campbell said. “At that time, we would decide whether or not to either immediately arrest them or to file charges through the state’s attorney’s office.” Mandated reporters, like teachers, are required to report suspected child neglect or endangerment to law enforcement. You also need to be careful if you watch other children. “If you also happen to have a child daycare in that residence, obviously you cannot use it or consume it there,” Hankin said. Any marijuana kept in the house must also be in a prepackaged, childproof container. In other words, kept out of reach. Although you can smoke on private property… Legally it can’t be around your child. The sheriff is also concerned about edibles, which are often packaged as treats like candy or baked goods. He especially wants parents to keep these items secure, since they might look tempting to a child.)

ILLINOIS FAMILY INSTITUTE
— They Were Warned – Kathy Valente (DIERSEN: QUESTION TO ASK CANDIDATES: What have you done and what will you do to discourage the sale and use of pot?)
https://illinoisfamily.org/uncategorized/they-were-warned/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Big Marijuana and its foolish proponents easily convinced Illinois state lawmakers that legalization would decrease black market trade and ease the burden on our criminal justice system. IFI warned them that this naive notion was contradicted by the facts, and we shared ample evidence from states that had already approved “recreational” marijuana. The evidence is clear: the black market had been thriving because of legalization. Now we read that the California cannabis industry is in big trouble and want lawmakers to do something about it. What’s their problem? The black market is doing 73 percent of California’s marijuana business – or $8.7 billion. California is considered to be the largest cannabis market in the world. While 2019 is not yet over, it’s estimated that their total marijuana sales will top nearly $12 billion. Yes, the black market is thriving on the left coast, growing by leaps and bounds, and threatening to bury a quasi-legitimate (sic) industry. So much for the influx of revenue they’re anticipating.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Democratic presidential candidate Michael Bloomberg says employees at his news organization need to accept restrictions with their paycheck, including the ban on investigating their boss. Bloomberg, billionaire founder of Bloomberg News, was asked in a CBS News interview about rules put in place when he announced his candidacy: The organization’s reporters are not allowed to probe him and his finances, or any of his Democratic rivals. Bloomberg News says the restriction does not apply to President Donald Trump as the government’s leader. That prompted Trump’s campaign to say it would not allow Bloomberg reporters to cover its events.)

FORBES
— The Impact Of Unemployment On Male Well-Being – Adi Gaskell (DIERSEN: I have been underemployed since 1976 and unemployed since 1997.)
https://www.forbes.com/sites/adigaskell/2019/12/06/the-impact-of-unemployment-on-male-wellbeing/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The impact of unemployment on well-being is well documented, although research from a few years ago suggested that it’s “good work” rather than just work that is the key to mental well-being. With the traditional gender roles presenting the role of men as the bread winner for the family, it seems logical that unemployment would pose a particular burden on men, and that was the subject of a recent report from the IZA World of Labor. The report reveals that the number of working-age men outside the labor force is on the rise around the world, with this corresponding with a rise in stress and other mental health issues, including depression and anger. Indeed, male unemployment is also linked to a range of physical health concerns, including suicide and substance abuse that are raising mortality rates across the United States. The researchers believe the issues of male unemployment are strongest among low-skilled labor, with those in work also suffering from declining wages and status. This often ultimately results in men dropping out of the labor force entirely. Many of the issues facing unemployed men revolve around a loss of hope, and such issues were consistent around the world. That many unemployed men resort to opioid abuse merely exacerbates their slide into poor mental well-being. This is often accompanied by marriage failure and a decline in civic or religious participation. One’s social standing was a key factor in this, as the image and self-esteem of many working class men is wrapped up in their hard work ethic, so being unemployed carries considerable stigma.)

Further, when I was in high school, I was not viewed as being “college material.” I just barely made into the upper 20% of my class. My ACT score was only 24.

https://www.congress.gov/bill/116th-congress/house-bill/1684/text
(FROM THE BILL: “(2) JOURNALIST.—The term ‘journalist’ means an individual who— “(A) is an employee, independent contractor, or agent of an entity or service that disseminates news or information— “(i) by means of a newspaper, nonfiction book, wire service, news agency, news website, mobile application or other news or information service (whether distributed digitally or otherwise), news program, magazine, or other periodical (whether in print, electronic, or other format); or “(ii) through a television broadcast, radio broadcast, multichannel video programming distributor (as defined in section 602 of the Communications Act of 1934 (47 U.S.C. 522)), or motion picture for public showing; and “(B) engages in newsgathering with the primary intent to investigate an event or procure material in order to disseminate to the public news or information concerning a local, national, or international event or other matter of public interest. “(3) NEWSGATHERING.—The term ‘newsgathering’ means engaging in regular gathering, preparation, collection, photographing, recording, writing, editing, reporting, or publishing concerning a local, national, or international event or other matter of public interest.)

LADDERS
— What NOT to talk about in a job interview (political affiliation) – Christina Brennan (DIERSEN: If I had been active in Republican politics a) the Post Office would NOT have offered me a job in 1966, b) IRS would NOT have offered me a job in 1971 or promoted me in 1972, 1973, or 1974, and c) GAO would NOT have offered me a job in 1980 or promoted me in 1986. Further, because they view me as being “too conservative” and as NOT being a yes-man, when Republicans ran Wheaton, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois, they would NOT have offered me a job either.) 
https://www.theladders.com/career-advice/what-not-to-talk-about-in-a-job-interview
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Political affiliation Being politically engaged is very important. Unless you’re in politics or your primary volunteer experience is related, stay away from discussing your beliefs or affiliations. If you do have professional or volunteer experience, be sure to focus on the outcomes and lessons you learned that can be applied in the role you’re interviewing for, rather than advocating for a politician, party or issue.)
— What NOT to talk about in a job interview (family plans) – Christina Brennan (DIERSEN: Government is nasty, politics is nasty, Democrats are nasty. My Democrat GAO superiors, supervisors, coworkers, and subordinates knew from Money Magazine’s February 1978 4-page article on my wife and I that we planned to have children. After my wife and I gave up trying to have children, after we did not adopt, and after we did not become foster parents, they hinted/implied/argued/shouted that I had lied about our family plans and that I should be punished severely for that. While virtually all of my coworkers viewed travel assignments positively and requested travel assignments, I had not requested travel assignments because my wife and I were trying to start a family. In 1989, to punish me for giving up trying to start a family, my Democrat GAO superiors threw me off audits of IRS and assigned me a 6-month travel assignment in Rock Island.) 
https://www.theladders.com/career-advice/what-not-to-talk-about-in-a-job-interview
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Family plans While pregnancy or parenthood discrimination is illegal and interviewers can’t ask if you’re in a relationship or have kids, you may still find yourself weaving these personal details into a story or talking about your future. Unfortunately, expressing future family plans can still create red flags, especially for women.)

Virtually all of them were anti-DINK (dual income, no kids). Prior to 1978 when I got married, they were furious that I did not have a spouse or children to support like they did. After 1978, they were even more furious that my wife had a good job, we gave up trying to have children, we did not adopt, and we did not become foster parents.)

I tout what learned passing the CPA and Certified Internal Auditor examinations on my fist attempt. I tout what I learned earning master’s degrees in business, accounting, and finance. I tout what I have learned serving as the GOPUSA Illinois Editor for 19 years.)
https://www.chicagotribune.com/sns-bc-us–election-2020-buttigieg-military-20191118-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Like candidates from the time of George Washington, the South Bend, Indiana, mayor is leaning hard on his seven-month deployment as an intelligence officer in Afghanistan as a powerful credential. As he does, he walks a narrow path between giving his wartime service its due and overstating it. He is careful not to call himself a combat veteran even as he notes the danger he faced. One of his former competitors for the Democratic nomination, Rep. Seth Moulton of Massachusetts, has drawn a sharp contrast between his four combat tours in Iraq and Buttigieg’s service. And a former commanding officer, who said he thinks Buttigieg would be within his rights to say he is a combat veteran, nonetheless questions the use of a rifle in his ads. As support for his campaign grows, Buttigieg can expect more intense scrutiny of his military record in a political climate where military service is far from sacred, as past attacks on the records of Republican John McCain and Democrat John Kerry show.)

That large difference stems from more federal workers receiving certain types of benefits than private workers, and from particular federal benefits being more generous than those provided in the private sector.)

https://www.theguardian.com/media/2019/nov/18/new-york-times-editor-says-trump-has-put-his-reporters-lives-at-risk

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The executive editor of the New York Times has accused Donald Trump of putting his reporters’ lives at risk by subjecting them to personal abuse and describing them as “enemies of the people”. Dean Baquet, who has led the news outlet during one of the most tumultuous periods in its history, said the US president’s history of verbal attacks on journalists such as the New York Times’s political reporter Maggie Haberman was “appalling” and risked having serious consequences. “I think his personal attacks on reporters, including Maggie, are pretty awful and pretty unpresidential,” he said. “I think personal attacks on journalists, when he calls them names, I think he puts their lives at risk. “I think that when he actually calls reporters names, says they’re un-American, says they’re enemies of the people … that phrase has a deep history. I think when he says that, it is an appalling attack on the press.” Baquet’s comments in an interview with the Guardian reflect Trump’s lengthy history of abuse towards journalists in general and the New York Times in particular. They echo comments from the newspaper’s publisher, AG Sulzberger, who has also clashed with Trump over his treatment of the media. Last year Sulzberger said he had told Trump in a meeting that “this inflammatory language is contributing to a rise in threats against journalists and will lead to violence”.)

https://www.wsj.com/articles/californias-board-diversity-tax-11573256678
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Democrats in California work hard to punish businesses and sometimes they succeed without trying. Consider a 2018 law that imposes gender quotas for boards of public companies based in the state, which a new study finds effectively destroyed $60 billion in wealth over night. Last September the state enacted a law requiring all public companies headquartered in California to have at least one female director by the end of 2019 and two by the end of 2021. Democrats claimed that increasing board diversity would benefit corporations. Investors supposedly needed politicians to tell them what was in their best financial interest.)

— Twitter’s Political Ad Ban ‘Dorsey says that he wants to level the playing field. Perhaps he, with 4.2 million followers, should shadow-ban himself.’ – Bradley A. Smith
https://www.wsj.com/articles/notable-quotable-twitters-political-ad-ban-11572908984
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Why does being a highly visible CEO mean one has “earned” more political influence than Walmart, the AFL-CIO, or any other entity that seeks to promote its political ideas? Dorsey spent his cash to start Twitter. They want to spend theirs to advertise on Twitter. How does this new policy “level the playing field?” . . .Twitter will ban not just candidate ads, but “issue ads,” because they “present a way to circumvent.” Does this mean that an ad promoting a documentary warning about (or dismissive of) climate change should be banned? How about an ad promoting a magazine profile of a candidate? Does a Gillette commercial lecturing men on the dangers of “toxic masculinity” qualify as an issue ad?)

https://pjmedia.com/jchristianadams/meet-kyle-frese-trump-hater-federal-employee-arrested-for-leaking-national-security-secrets/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Frese went to college and graduate school in Canada. His posts routinely cover national security and foreign affairs issues. They are also vehemently hostile to Donald Trump and his foreign policy. . .Frese traveled quite a bit. Every month or two, he could be found hiking Kilimanjaro or sipping beer in an Eastern European capital, visiting London or the low countries, Morocco, Berlin, Australia, all in the space of a year or two. It was quite a travel experience for a lowly federal employee. Perhaps it was work-related, all those different destinations. Excessive foreign travel can be a marker for a national security risk. Frese would occasionally quibble with “irresponsible” stories about national security matters. He had the audacity to complain about “unnamed armaments experts providing commentary.” He also had a beef with Senator Marco Rubio citing Psalms. Frese is most likely being held, for now, in the Alexandria City Jail in Virginia. If he is convicted, he can expect to be living in a federal prison. Nobody should consider his hostility toward President Trump an outlier in the federal civil service. Whether it is a whistleblower wound up about Ukraine or the FBI lovebirds, the civil service still cannot cope with the 2016 election results.)

NEWS BUSTERS
— Not Again! Facebook to Launch Human-Curated News – Alexander Hall (DIERSEN: As your GOPUSA Illinois Editor since 2000, I have been a conservative “human-curator” of Illinois political and government news since 2000. Of course, anti-conservatives continue to focus on stopping me from doing that. They especially focus on stopping Republicans in Wheaton, Glen Ellyn, Milton Township, DuPage County, and Illinois from reading GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails. If you were me, what would you do increase readership of GOPUSA ILLINOIS emails?) 
https://www.newsbusters.org/blogs/techwatch/alexander-hall/2019/10/25/not-again-facebook-launch-human-curated-news
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Facebook is launching a “News” tab today, which will provide stories from hundreds of news organizations. This is the second time the social media site tried to decide what is news for its users. The first time exploded under allegations of bias against the right. “Facebook’s service will include some human curation by a small editorial team of journalists, who will select top stories” according to The Washington Post. Much like asking “who fact-checks the fact-checkers,” the question of “who curates the curators” will likely be on conservatives’ minds. After all, based on Facebook’s troubled history with truth, conservatives would be right to be concerned about their commitment to free expression. Facebook previously purged its disgraced Trending topics section after not only being accused of bias, but having its very own workers blow the whistle on its agenda-setting. “[A]ccording to a former journalist who worked on the project,” Gizmodo summarized, “… workers prevented stories about the right-wing CPAC gathering, Mitt Romney, Rand Paul, and other conservative topics from appearing in the highly-influential section, even though they were organically trending among the site’s users.” Anne Kornblut, The Post’s former deputy national editor, “is overseeing the team of journalists who will chose [sic] top stories for the ‘News’ tab, according to people familiar with planning for the service,” reported The Post. The participating news organizations whose content will be curated includes “about 200 news organizations, including The Washington Post, The New York Times, News Corp, BuzzFeed News, Business Insider, Bloomberg, Fox News, NBCUniversal, USA Today and The Los Angeles Times. Some of those outlets will be paid for their content, including The Post” The Post noted in an article it published today. If that wasn’t damning enough, many of Facebook’s “news curators” told Gizmodo that they were instructed to “inject” specific stories into the Trending news section. The former curators also claimed that Facebook, in the spirit of self-preservation, discouraged them from including news about Facebook itself. Facebook executives told Axios a few months ago that they would be “hiring seasoned journalists to help curate a forthcoming ‘News Tab’ that they hope will change how millions get news.” Facebook’s mission, as Axios described, is “to restore the sanity and credibility that’s lost in the chaos of our main feeds.” Facebook’s head of news partnerships Campbell Brown, a former news anchor at NBC and CNN, said that algorithms will also be involved. “Our goal with the News tab is to provide a personalized, highly relevant experience … ,” said Brown. “The majority of stories people will see will appear in the tab via algorithmic selection.” For what it’s worth, Zuckerberg has tried to reassure conservatives they will at least attempt to avoid bias. “‘We are monitoring for any kind of bias, both amongst our team and in the product itself,’ Zuckerberg said,” according to Axios’ reporting. “‘Making sure that this ends up being a platform for all different perspectives is obviously going to be very important for this succeeding over the long term.’” Conservatives wary of “diversity” politics may have their hackles raised by the other comments made by Zuckerberg in the same article, however. Facebook claimed to have hired journalists with “real experience” who are a “diverse group who have different backgrounds and views and different nationalities.” News Corp founder Rupert Murdoch explained the rationale in a Jan. 2018 press release, saying, “If Facebook wants to recognize ‘trusted’ publishers then it should pay those publishers a carriage fee similar to the model adopted by cable companies.” He added further that these payments “would have a minor impact on Facebook’s profits but a major impact on the prospects for publishers and journalists.” The news industry seems to approve, and this is yet another step toward their “long-sought goal of having technology companies pay for the content they deliver to users.” This service will also pitFacebook against other “news aggregation services offered by Silicon Valley rivals Google and Apple.” “Facebook will pay publishers for work they already make and then share to the platform, which means it is pure profit,” Vox/Recode summarized about the “News” tab. CNN reporter Oliver Darcy tweeted that Zuckerberg defended “having far-right website Breitbart in its news tab” quoting the Facebook CEO as saying “I think you want to have content that represents different perspectives.” When asked about Breitbart being among the other websites in the news tab Darcy observed how Zuckerberg expressed that all outlets will have to comply with Facebook’s standards.)

— Save — and expand — newspaper subscriptions: How federal employees should respond to Donald Trump’s war on the Washington Post and New York Times – DAVID J. VERARDO (DIERSEN: Those who are Christian, conservative, and/or Republican should keep up to date with what those who are anti-Christian, anti-conservative, and/or anti-Republican are saying. That is why I pay many thousands of dollars each year for home delivery and website access for anti-Christian, anti-conservative, and/or anti- Republican publications. It is called opposition research.) 
https://www.nydailynews.com/opinion/ny-oped-subscriptions-20191026-7jbcgvcxcze7bhmrgbsn27rkde-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: President Trump’s order to all federal agencies to cancel their subscriptions to the Washington Post and New York Times is peevish, wrongheaded, and dangerous. These two papers, as well as numerous others, provide a lifeline to the federal workforce and the American public regarding information and knowledge about our country and the wider world. A civilization without a free and accessible press is not civilized at all. Instead of canceling subscriptions, federal agencies would be better served by holding their Post and Times subscriptions and expanding their subscriptions to other media. Federal employees themselves should subscribe to the Post and Times and the media of their choice to ensure the free flow of information. I subscribe to both publications, and here is why. Many times my day begins with someone asking me “Did you see the story in today’s Washington Post…” or “Did you see the New York Times coverage of …” As a scientist, I rely on news coverage of science, technology, engineering and math in the Post and Times to alert me to new findings and innovations outside my expertise that I can further investigate in detail through the scientific literature. As a public servant, I need the Post and Times to help fill me in on innovations in the federal workforce that come directly from practitioners. As a private citizen, I rely on the Post and Times for differing perspectives on issues affecting my daily life. I need to understand trends in medicine, law, finance, politics and the environment so that I can make informed choices. I want journalists to investigate and ask hard questions, get to the bottom of things, challenge the prevailing wisdom, and help me discover my biases. I depend on them to do their job while I am busy doing mine. Since our country’s founding, politicians have had a love-hate relationship with the press. They love coverage that supports their views and hate coverage that challenges their views, actions or inaction. As a voter, I need coverage from all angles. That approach scares some politicians into seeking to control and muzzle the press. History shows that the American public is best served by a free and open press whose acceptance and credibility by the public is determined by the free market, not political fiat. The press is accountable to its readers because the readers make the final judgment on who or what is believable. The press is not the enemy of the people just because you don’t agree with them. The enemy of the people are demagogues who manipulate the truth for personal gain. Using power granted to you temporarily by the American people, to cancel government-wide subscriptions to publications that do not constantly heap praise on you, is the “perfect” example of demagoguery, Mr. President. We need you to “be best.”)

— Student debt forgiveness isn’t worth a toxic workplace – Michelle Singletary (DIERSEN: While I worked for the Democrats who ran GAO’s Chicago office 1980-1997, they increasingly made the office toxic for its employees who were Republican, White, male, and/or non-veteran and who had not made GS-13 (currently $98,198) by age 25, GS-14 (currently $116,040) by age 30, GS-15 (currently $136,495) by age 35, and Senior Executive Service (currently $165,500) by age 40.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: I made a promise to myself early in my career. If my job ever became so unbearable that I got stomach cramps at just the thought of walking into the office, it was time to quit. But what if staying in your crummy job is the only way to have tens of thousands of dollars in student debt forgiven? This is the issue vexing a reader, who asked me during a recent online discussion: Should I stay or should I go? “I’m a federal employee with five years left to loan forgiveness,” the person wrote. “I work in a toxic office and have been trying for several years to find a job in a different agency. I was recently offered a two-year term position that would be in a new practice area with supervisory responsibility and a fairly significant pay raise. But I would lose the ‘golden handcuffs’ of virtually guaranteed employment and risk losing six-figure loan forgiveness if I don’t find a permanent position during the two years. Is it worth it?”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: China effectively expelled a Wall Street Journal reporter from the country, one month after the newspaper published a report detailing allegations that a cousin of Chinese leader Xi Jinping was involved in high-stakes gambling and potential money laundering in Australia. Chinese authorities told the Journal on Friday it would not renew press credentials for Chun Han Wong, a Singapore national who has covered Chinese politics out of the paper’s Beijing bureau since 2014. Those credentials expired Friday. China sometimes withholds or refuses visas to punish international news organizations for what the ruling Communist Party perceives as unfavorable coverage. But the decision amounted to the first time in recent memory that the Chinese government has effectively turfed out a reporter from the Journal, a publication generally known for incisive but evenhanded coverage of the country.)
