https://managementconsulted.com/accenture-careers/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The competitive environment, the up-or-out promotion schedule, and the sheer size of the company ensure a high rate of turnover. This means that Accenture jobs are frequently available, in a variety of roles as well as office locations. These jobs are posted at multiple forums, but you can be sure to find some at Glassdoor and Indeed.)

VANCOUVER SUN
— NDP, Liberal and Green parties have subtly different plans to keep people safe while campaigning – Lori Culbert (DIERSEN: Of course, ever-increasing, my critics/opponents, their operatives, and their dupes hint/imply/argue/shout that because of the pandemic and because of my terrible demographics (old, overweight, White, male, type-2 diabetic, Trump supporter, conservative, patriotic, Republican, American, heterosexual, married, non-poor, gun owner, Protestant, 100% German American, my ancestors have been in America since 1844, and owner of six American nameplate cars and one SUV), I should NOT do anything to help elect candidates and b) I should resign as a Republican Precinct Committeeman. Nevertheless, yesterday, I finished hand-delivering door-to-door the following to all 150 homes in my precinct a) that had at least one Republican or Independent voter and b) that had no Democrat yard signs: joint candidate piece from the Milton Township Republican Organization, sample ballot, literature from the 14 Republican candidates on the ballot in my precinct who provided campaign literature, and my GOPUSA Illinois business card. Six of the aforesaid pieces had to be folded to fit inside the envelopes provided by the DuPage County Republican Central Committee. The envelopes had on them a) mailing labels provided by the DuPage County Election Division for each individual Republican or Independent voter and b) my return address label.)
https://vancouversun.com/news/politics/bc-election/dont-pet-voters-dogs-or-sneeze-on-campaign-literature-a-few-of-the-b-c-party-covid-tips-for-staff

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The three main parties supplied their safety plans to Postmedia, and there are obvious similarities around mask-wearing, social distancing, handwashing and staying home when sick. But there are also differences. At the NDP camp, workers from different parts of the campaign are “bubbled” and not allowed to interact with their fellow party workers. That is not only a drag for the Smith brothers, but for senior bus staffer Marie Della Mattia and her daughter, Emily, who works at NDP headquarters. The NDP says its rules are based on guidelines from WorkSafeBC and Henry’s office: At headquarters, staff work in small cohort teams that arrive and eat at different times while those on the bus sit in spread-out seats and hand sanitize after every stop. On Thursday, the party issued new protocols for journalists, which includes an online form that asks for symptoms and collects contact-tracing information. The Liberals’ safety plan includes many of those same elements, but also details minimizing the number of workers in campaign offices, prohibiting the public from entering the offices or requiring appointments, and using plastic or shower curtains barriers when physical distance cannot be maintained. The Liberals also have rules for canvassing, which includes limiting physical contact with doorbells and railings, hand-sanitizing between each house, never going into voters’ houses, and never petting their dogs and cats. Campaign material should be carried in a plastic bag, workers must “take every possible precaution to avoid sneezing” on it, and it should never be handed directly to a voter. Liberal events should have no more than 50 people, ideally be held outside, provide masks and sanitizer and, when possible, have assigned seating, the party says. In its safety material, the Green party acknowledges that “COVID-19 has created a situation where campaigning is going to look very different.” For starters, canvassers should wear gloves and, this year more than ever, respect a voter who isn’t interested. “Canvassers must understand that the public may not be comfortable with this type of activity at their place of residence. Team members will need to be polite, respectful and sensitive to people’s comfort levels,” the Green material says. Only team members in the same household bubble should travel in a car together. If additional people must be in the car, roll the windows down. In campaign offices, door handles, printers and sink taps must be cleaned several times a day, and Green party volunteers should avoid using common coffee pots, kettles or microwaves — which could make for some tired and hungry volunteers. Even when it comes to donations, the rules have changed. The Green party would prefer “contactless” transactions, presumably e-transfers, or old-fashioned cash can be dropped into a container with a slot on top.)

— Illinois Governor Pritzker’s Claim Of Following the Science And Data Appears To Be False…According To The Data – KIRK ALLEN & JOHN KRAFT
https://edgarcountywatchdogs.com/2020/09/illinois-governor-pritzkers-claim-of-following-the-science-and-data-appears-to-be-false-according-to-the-data/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: As if all this “science and data” the Governor claims he is following is not troubling enough, how about the tying of that data to the mask mandate? Early on the so-called “experts” warned that the use of masks for the healthy was not advised. In fact, it was discouraged for several reasons, of which one was because it could lead to more cases because people would be fiddling with their masks because they are not used to wearing one and that would lead to more cases. Looking at the data, Illinois hit a low from the first peak just after the middle of June. May 29th was the face mask mandate. About three weeks after that mandate, positive cases climbed. Is it possible the data is telling us the masks were doing exactly what the “experts” told us in the beginning? Considering I have yet to find one person who washes their mask after being out in public, it is quite possible that masks are a contributing factor to the increased numbers. Don’t take this to mean masks don’t help to slow the spread. We are simply suggesting the data points to more cases shortly after the mask mandate and that mandate had no guidance on the importance of making sure the mask you wear does not have a valve, is disposed of after use, or washed regularly if you’re using homemade masks. In the words of Moses, “Let My People Go”.)

https://townhall.com/columnists/willalexander/2020/09/20/sports-world-gets-equality-all-wrong-n2576508
(FROM THE ARTICLE: The fatal flaw in the idea that America is rife with racial inequality is a failure to distinguish between two kinds of equality: the equality of blacks as human beings, and the equality of their performance in the social and economic arenas. The root of so many stubborn problems in America’s inner cities have less to do with skin color than with behavior. But instead of getting to the root of the problem, academia, corporate-types, the media, Hollywood, and now professional sports have become a septic system that pipes the rotten narrative of victimhood all over the nation, forcing regular folks to clean up all the crap. Confusing race-based inequality with performance-based inequality is what’s getting business looted and demolished, and people beaten and killed in the Twilight Zone known as the Black Lives Matter movement. Of all industries, the “put-up-or-shut-up” world of sports should know better. “Put up or shut up” is all about performance. A player’s history, pedigree, race, likeability, good looks – or bad looks – is completely separate from his value to the game. His value to the game is measured solely by his performance.)

HARTFORD COURANT
— The governor was right to impose fines for not wearing a mask. But is it enough? – Editorial (DIERSEN: Ever-increasingly, hate-filled Trump-hating Trump-haters a) viciously demonize, viciously denigrate, and viciously condemn those like me who wear a mask only when Pritzker requires me to and b) hint/imply/argue/shout that to wear a mask is to shout your hatred of Trump.)
https://news.yahoo.com/governor-impose-fines-not-wearing-101100131.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: When Gov. Ned Lamont announced last week that people caught not wearing a mask could face a $100 fine, cries of “King Ned” came quickly. Hecklers turned out to Gov. Lamont’s public appearances, carrying signs reading “liberty or death” and “stop the tyranny.” One Naugatuck man with a bullhorn said the governor had no right to require his 3-year-old daughter to wear a mask. Gov. Lamont has indeed issued a fair number of executive orders since he declared a state of emergency in the spring, and it’s important for the public to ask if he is overextending his authority — but in many cases, the answer is clearly “no,” and the mask protesters are missing the point and risking lives. The $100 fine for not wearing a mask is perfectly appropriate and, it appears, necessary to encourage compliance with a simple and painless act that saves lives. The legislature could easily impose the same fine. No overextension here. In one part of Indonesia, people who were caught not wearing masks were punished by being forced to dig graves for people who had died of COVID-19. A $100 fine doesn’t send as clear a message. It’s unlikely that municipal police are going to swarm public places and hand out $100 fines to the maskless, although they should make it a priority. In the end, the choice really remains with individuals. But this isn’t just about a handful of people refusing to wear masks. The data tell us that the anti-maskers are far from alone in ignoring common sense.)

NEW JERSEY
— DISGUSTING, OUTRAGEOUS: Slapping fines on those who don’t wear masks in stores advances in N.J. – Brent Johnson
https://www.nj.com/coronavirus/2020/09/plan-to-slap-fines-on-those-who-dont-wear-masks-in-nj-stores-moves-closer-to-murphys-desk.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Despite an intense debate, New Jersey is one step closer to establishing a fine of up to $500 for shoppers who don’t properly wear a mask inside stores during the coronavirus pandemic. The state Assembly’s appropriations committee voted 7-4, along party lines, to approve the bill that says anyone who enters a store with a visible sign requiring them to wear a mask is subject to a fine of $50 to $500 if they don’t wear a face covering over both their nose and mouth. Gov. Phil Murphy signed an executive order in April mandating that people that enter stores in the Garden State must wear masks. Under this Democratic-sponsored bill (A4453), violators would face a fine of between $50 and $500 if they enter a store with a visible sign requiring customers wear masks but don’t have a face covering over both their nose and mouth. Originally, the bill carried a possible 30-day jail sentence, but that has since been dropped.)

— Former state GOP Chairman Brady backs Democratic U.S. Rep. Sean Casten over Republican Jeanne Ives; Ives, state party fire back – RICK PEARSON

(FROM THE ARTICLE: The state’s current Republican leadership — Chairman Tim Schneider, National Committeeman Richard Porter and National Committeewoman Demetra Demonte — came to Ives’ defense in a joint statement that contended “identifying and labeling Pat Brady as a Republican is false and misleading.” Ives weighed in on Twitter, saying: “Of course Pat Brady endorsed Sean Casten. Amoral, ruling class political hacks stick together.” “Pat Brady is a liberal Democrat and has been for some time. Sean Casten may have the backing of political hacks but Jeanne Ives is supported by hard working taxpayers,” the statement said. . .Schneider, who is now coming to Ives’ defense, was Rauner’s hand-picked state GOP chairman and denounced the 2018 ad. He said it did not reflect the Illinois Republican Party, called it a “cowardly attempt to stoke political division” and asked her to apologize and remove it. She did neither. State Republicans who are running a “races to watch” online program to help raise funds for a variety of contenders did not include Ives. State GOP officials said she declined to participate in the fundraising effort, but they support her candidacy.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Republican consultant Jon Zahm has resurrected a political action committee he started 10 years ago to try to unseat Illinois Supreme Court Justice Thomas Kilbride, who’s up for retention. “I oppose Kilbride because I predicted in 2010 that he would support [House Speaker Michael] Madigan’s power to draw legislative maps gerrymandered to elect Democrats,” Zahm told Playbook. “And in 2016, that’s exactly what [Kilbride] protected when he would not allow the public to vote on the Fair Maps Amendment due to a technicality.” That was a 4-3 vote along party lines with a decision authored by Kilbride. Steve Korris of the Madison-St. Clair Record questions whether Kilbride’s opinion allowed Madigan’s power to go unchecked. Zahm hopes Vote No Kilbride 2020 PAC is more successful than its 2010 iteration. Supreme Court justices need 60 percent of the vote to be retained. In 2010, Kilbride received not quite 66 percent. The GOP politico says he’s put $500 of his own money into the PAC and he expects to run his anti-Kilbride campaign as a grassroots effort with signs and speaking engagements. Zahm’s twin sons, Daniel and Jonah, were born when Kilbride was first elected in 2000 and the boys took part in parades and put up signs with their dad during the last campaign. Now they’re working as field directors in the 2020 effort. “Twenty years is enough,” Zahm said. “He does not need 30.”)

https://amgreatness.com/2020/09/08/the-ruling-class-strikes-back/
(FROM THE ARTICLE: For months, entire city blocks have been defaced, looted, and razed in the name of a racial justice spearheaded by Antifa and Black Lives Matter. Their aim is summarized by far-left activist Ashley Nicole McCray: “This future that we all want, that we’re all trying to build, really is about the destruction of colonization, white supremacy, and capitalism.” But McCray’s is itself a colonial project that seeks to fill with its poison every political and cultural institution in the basin of American life. It also happens to be backed by many in America’s mostly white capitalist class who use racial grievances for their own gain and are used by the aggrieved in turn. Increasingly it appears we are witnessing a ruling class power grab more than a social justice revolution. The elites are striking back directly and through proxies.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Shortly after the newest banner appeared at Maine East, Maine Township Republican Committeewoman Char Foss-Eggemann, of Park Ridge, posted a message on the Republicans of Maine Township Facebook page, writing that it is “a breach of the public trust to use taxpayer-funded government property to post political messages.” She encouraged followers of the pages to email District 207 Supt. Ken Wallace to inquire about the banner, which she referred to as a “BLM banner,” the abbreviation standing for “Black lives matter.” The message was also shared by the Republican Women of Park Ridge Facebook page, an organization of which Foss-Eggemann is also a leader. In an email to Pioneer Press, Foss-Eggemann said the Maine East banners contain “political messaging” and the name of “a specific political organization,” Black Lives Matter. “There should be zero debate on this because it is self-evident,” Foss-Eggemann said. “Political messages do not belong on any government building, period.” In an email to Wallace, which Foss-Eggemann also shared, she suggested the district could achieve “an environment of equality, inclusion and kindness” by using “apolitical banners which avoid politically-charged slogans or words routinely and/or commercially associated with various political group(s).”)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: On a call with reporters hosted by the Biden campaign Friday, Illinois Sen. Tammy Duckworth lambasted Trump for “belittling the sacrifices of those who have shown more bravery than he’s capable of.” Duckworth, a retired Army National Guard lieutenant colonel who lost both of her legs in the Iraq War, has been a prominent critic of Trump’s handling of military issues. Knocking Trump for allegedly inventing an injury to avoid serving in the Vietnam War, Duckworth said that she’d “take my wheelchair and my titanium legs over Donald Trump’s supposed bone spurs any day.” Khizr Khan, the Gold Star father who drew national attention after criticizing Trump during the 2016 Democratic National Convention, joined Duckworth on the call and said that Trump’s “life is a testament to selfishness.”)
