Job security that’s fair to employee and employer? This far into President Duterte’s administration and it seems as if the public is finally, slowly, starting to audit the campaign promises he made to get elected. From nixing his initial six month promise to eradicate the country’s drug problem to admitting that fixing the country’s infrastructure issues could take more than his limited time in office, it seems that the president is finally realizing that many of the things he promised to the people are going to take more than one presidential term to actually deliver. Honestly, looking back at all the promises that were made and what has actually happened is quite depressing. Changes have definitely come, but we can’t all say they have been for the better. Inflation has hit hard and in the quest to lower taxes, the price of everything else has increased and more than compensated for the little on tax payment people have … [Read more...] about Job security that’s fair to employee and employer?

WASHINGTON: President Donald Trump is restructuring his legal team with lawyers more at home in a courtroom than a television studio as he shifts from dealing with Special Counsel Robert Mueller to battling Democratic-led investigations in the US Congress.The long-time leaders of Trump's team - Jay Sekulow and Rudy Giuliani - remain in place. But other attorneys, known for their litigation skills, are taking on larger roles on the team: William Consovoy, Patrick Strawbridge, Marc Mukasey and Stefan Passantino.The first legal offensive from Consovoy and Strawbridge has encountered early setbacks. Their law firm, Consovoy McCarthy, filed two lawsuits in April on behalf of Trump intended to block congressional subpoenas seeking the Republican president's personal financial records, but both were rejected last week by federal judges. Trump is appealing those decisions, and House Democrats agreed not to enforce the subpoenas during that process. Some lawyers scoffed at … [Read more...] about For battles with US Congress, Trump reshapes legal defence team
I was not an easy client to advertising agencies because I insisted that the agency should understand my business and must figure out the way I think. I was decisive and I get frustrated when the agency does not know what I want. Other cases are different, and most advertising people know this. They complain that clients want attention-grabbing innovative ideas that nobody has ever thought of. So the creative people dream up a lot of ambitious stuff and present these creative, big, and bold designs only to have clients shake their heads and wince. They claim that the studies are not what they are looking for and then direct the agency towards a campaign that is safe, timid and boring. The fact is, many clients do not know what they want. Honestly, I was the opposite type. I wanted advertisements to be: “In your face,” edgy and bordering on the ridiculous because the fashion industry caters to the young, and the young demands a lot of excitement and creativity. I knew what I … [Read more...] about What do clients want?
Yes, the title is in reference to the current biggest movie in the world, topping charts and breaking box office records worldwide, but it’s also in reference to us right now. As far as elections go – we are in the endgame this week and the choices we decide to make could change everything for our country in the next few years. I truly hope that we, collectively, make the right choices. With the election looming next week the candidates are making a mad dash toward the finish line. If surveys are to be believed we have already seen a peek at what the election slate is going to look like, but then again we never know. It all depends on the people who may or may not change their minds when they troop to the polls. Personally, while last minute campaigning is expected I feel that the majority of people have already made up their minds. Save for a few last minute changes my list has been ready for awhile and I can only hope that people have done their due diligence and created … [Read more...] about We’re in the endgame
By Joshua Partlow The Washington Post David A. Fahrenthold Tues., April 30, 2019 HILLSDALE, N. Y.—His bosses at the Trump country club called it “side work.” On some nights, after the club’s Grille Room closed, head waiter Jose Gabriel Juarez — an undocumented immigrant from Mexico — was told to clock out. He pressed his index finger onto a scanner and typed his personal code, 436. But he didn’t go home. Instead — on orders from his bosses, Juarez said — he would stay on, sometimes past midnight. He vacuumed carpets, polished silverware and helped get the restaurant at Trump National Golf Club Westchester in Briarcliff Manor, New York, ready for breakfast the next day. All off the clock. Without being paid. Article Continued Below “It was that way with all the managers: Many of them told us, ‘Just clock out and then stay and do the side work,’ “ said Juarez, who spent a decade at … [Read more...] about At Trump golf course, undocumented employees said they were sometimes told to work extra hours without pay
