https://www.chicagotribune.com/business/ct-biz-cresco-dispensary-wrigley-field-20190719-5nkq7sa7zfbativs5vr5cimnaq-story.html
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Meanwhile, operators around the state are preparing for recreational marijuana sales, which are set to start Jan. 1. Under the law Gov. Pritzker signed last month legalizing recreational use, existing medical dispensaries may apply to sell recreational marijuana as well. They may also apply to open a second location. In all, Cresco co-owns or owns five dispensaries and operates three cultivation facilities in Illinois. The company has applied with the state to sell recreational cannabis at its five existing dispensaries, Erkes said. If the company relocates its Lakeview facility across from Wrigley Field, it is unclear whether Cresco would have to reapply for a license to sell recreational marijuana there. The state has not started accepting applications for second dispensary locations. Municipalities and counties may ban cannabis businesses. Chicago has not yet established any zoning rules for the recreational industry.)

(FROM THE ARTICLE: Alas, we can’t urge Trump to go back where his family came from, because his big flapping mouth might land him in prison. Having had their fill of it under Adolf Hitler, the Germans have criminalized what they call “Volksverhetzung,” or “incitement of the people.” In Germany, it’s illegal to urge “hatred against a national, racial, religious group or a group defined by their ethnic origins, against segments of the population or individuals because of their belonging to one of the aforementioned groups … or calls for violent or arbitrary measures against them.” The penalty is three months to five years.)

LOS ANGELES TIMES
— Google settles job seekers’ age-bias claims for $11 million – ROBERT BURNSON (DIERSEN: I should write a book about those employers who have rejected my job applications since 1997 when I was 49 years old and my Democrat GAO superiors succeeded in forcing me to take their early retirement “offer.”)
https://www.latimes.com/business/story/2019-07-19/google-settles-job-seekers-age-bias-claims-for-11-million
(FROM THE ARTICLE: Google agreed to pay $11 million to end a lawsuit accusing the internet giant of discriminating against older job applicants, a deal that amounts to an average payout of more than $35,000 for 227 people who joined the class action. The settlement also calls for the Alphabet Inc. unit to train employees and managers about age bias, create a committee focused on age diversity in recruiting and ensure that complaints are adequately investigated. Lawyers for the company and attorneys representing the over-40 job seekers who sued submitted a final settlement proposal Friday to a federal judge in San Jose. Lawyers will collect about $2.75 million from the accord. The case was brought by a woman who claimed she was interviewed by Google four times over seven years and was never offered employment despite her “highly pertinent qualifications and programming experience” because of her age. Cheryl Fillekes accused the company of “a systematic pattern and practice of discriminating” against older people.)

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 $19,568 (21%) 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.)
