    HAVING worked in retail for 20 years, Donna O’Brien was a confident store manager – but she believes crippling brain fog brought on by the menopause led to her being sacked. Donna, 49, says: “I was humiliated because no one understood why I couldn’t deliver due to my brain fog. 4Donna O'Brien says a menopause leave policy would have saved her careerCredit: David Cummings “It was demoralising, and I just generally felt like I had no ability to be able to manage any more, and I didn’t know why. “You don’t know when you are going to go into the menopause and because it is such a gradual thing you wake up and go, ‘What has happened to me?’.” A recent report by private health firm Bupa found women suffering menopause symptoms are 43 per cent more likely to be out of a job by the age of 55 because of “shocking” discrimination. And 900,000 women have left work because of the menopause. READ MORE ON MENOPAUSEYOU GLOW GIRL I couldn't believe my eyes when I saw my new reflection...
    The British constitution says there doesn’t have to be a fresh national election if the Prime Minister resigns, but recent convention suggests there should be anyway. Sir Keir Starmer, leader of Parliament’s opposition Labour party, has demanded fresh elections in the wake of Prime Minister Boris Johnson announcing he was to be stepping down this week. To an external observer this may seem a redundant point: of course a government collapsing would precipitate fresh elections to decide who should lead the country next. But with Britain’s parliamentary system, the next Prime Minister will actually be chosen by just a few thousand paid-up members of the country’s largest political party, from a choice of two candidates decided by a few hundred Members of Parliament. In some circumstances, the MPs may even bypass the vote among ordinary party memebers. Boris Johnson has governed the United Kingdom since 2019 by virtue of being the leader of the largest party in Parliament, the Conservatives, or Tories. In this sense, the Prime Minister doesn’t have a personal mandate, with the aggregate will of the people...

She claimed to have lost 5lbs within two weeks since starting the job and has handed in her notice because of the anxiety and sleep problems it is causing.   Many commenters reflected on the things that pushed them to leave a job soon after starting, with some admitting they didn't give any notice before walking out.

    President Joe Biden addressed the nation on Friday to discuss the March job reports, announce his new tax on billionaires and detail his policy to lower gas prices in the U.S. “Americans are back to work,” Biden said while speaking from the White House. “Record job creation. Record unemployment decline. Record wage gains,” the president added while discussing the 11th consecutive jobs report with new hires above 400,000. “Even though we created a record number of jobs we know — I know that this job is not finished. We need to do more to get prices under control,” Biden continued. “Putin’s invasion of Ukraine has driven up gas prices and food prices all over the world,” Biden added as he then discussed his Thursday announcement to release up to 180 million barrels of oil from the Strategic Petroleum Reserve – the largest release in U.S. history. Biden went on to discuss his plan to ensure all billionaires pay a minimum of 20 percent in taxes, a policy he argued would help tackle the country’s skyrocketing debt. “I’ve said in the...

    Montgomery County, Maryland, has been without a permanent health officer since September — and for a second time, a top candidate has declined the job over concerns about public and political pressure resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic. Two candidates have been offered the permanent job as health officer, succeeding Dr. Travis Gayles, who left the job last August, but both turned down the offers after discussions about the potential for backlash, according to Council President Gabe Albornoz and County Executive Marc Elrich. During a virtual news briefing Wednesday, Elrich said that local officials have been upfront about Gayles’ resignation following threats levied against him, his staff and his family for implementing state and federal pandemic guidance at the county level. It wasn’t until the offer was on the table that the last candidate to become Montgomery County’s new health officer turned down the job over how politicized it can become. Elrich said that’s understandable. “I think people may have trepidation about doing this job,” he said. “There are hundreds of vacancies around the country, in terms of empty health officer...
    The officer said that after several surgeries, he felt capable of returning to light duty despite struggling with the aftereffects of the accident and subsequent surgeries. The officer and his family said that the township refused to reinstate him for anything other than full patrol. The outlet reported that the officer's wife, Molly Stump, said that DeWitt Township Manager Andrew Dymczyk told Officer Stump that he had been afforded enough time to heal and "was too expensive," so the township opted to replace him with a new officer who would reportedly cost the town less money. The family said that the firing came without notice and took them completely by surprise. "We're very overwhelmed by this, very confused by all of this," Molly said of the decision. "How do you go from two years ago, you know, being hailed a hero, and now you're a burden to us financially?" She added, "The things he's done in his career, the people he's protected and saved. This is how he's thanked for all those years of giving up holidays and...

    Men and women who survived living under the rule of a Turkish televangelist-turned- cult leader have opened up about the abuse they suffered - often for years - before he was finally arrested.  In January, Adnan Oktar was jailed for 1,045 years in Turkey for a series of charges including rape, child abuse, espionage and blackmail. The 64-year-old denied all of the charges, and is expected to appeal. At the height of his notoriety, the conservative Islamic preacher frequently broadcast his sermons surrounded by scantily-clad women. Speaking to the Sunday Times, several of the women who lived with him, whom he called 'kittens', and some of the men who were under his rule, known as his 'lions', have now opened up about the terrible abuse he put them through.  Several women who were victims of the Turkish televangelist Adnan Oktar, pictured, have now opened up about life with the abusive group leader, after he was jailed for 1,045 years in January  Adnan, pictured left, was found guilty of a series of charges including rape, child abuse, espionage and blackmail by a...
    Police in the Bay Area in California believe they've uncovered new evidence to solve the 24-year-old cold case of a missing mother of three who disappeared without a trace after a job interview. Janie June Coe, then 38, had a job interview on April 29, 1997. After the interview ended around 3 p.m. that day, she headed for her home on Penrod Drive in Petaluma. The job interview was the last place Coe was ever seen. She was reported missing a few days later on May 2, after she didn't pick up her children from their grandfather's house.  Police in the San Francisco area now believe DNA evidence has given them a break in the case.   Coe's 1989 Ford Aerostar was abandoned and found in a field on May 5.

    OAKLAND, Calif. (KGO) -- Nurses and mental health clinicians in Northern California walked out today in solidarity of the engineers union who have yet to reach an agreement with Kaiser.

    IF you're considering quitting your job, know that it may come with consequences that you’ll want to keep in mind before you act. Reasons you might want to quit your job could vary from you not getting on with your boss and colleagues, or Covid-related reasons. 1Things you might consider include unemployment benefits and your savings We explain four things you should be aware of before you quit your job. No unemployment benefits in some cases If you quit your job you need to have a “good cause” in order to qualify for unemployment benefits. While this could depend by state, some valid reasons could be medical reasons, caring for a family member, or a domestic violence case. But make sure you check with your local labor department to see what will qualify you for unemployment benefits. If you wind up quitting without a qualifying reason, your benefits through your employer will likely expire by the end of the month you left.

    The World Series kicks off at 8pm on Tuesday. Atlanta Braves, we will find the American champions Houston Astros against the national champions. On paper, the Astros are stronger than the Braves. This is what bookmakers say is their favorite. But baseball is played on the field. The Braves will also have good elements to compete with the Astros during the series. So here is the status of the forces. Beginners At Charlie Morton, Ian Anderson and Max Fried, the Braves have three reliable starters who can do the job. They will be rested as they have not played in 82,615 games in relief and senior Morton will bowl in the first game of the series. Among the Astros, Jose Urgudi, Luis Garcia and Framber Waltz (first-match pitcher) have shown both good and bad skills, especially against the Red Sox. Without Lance McCullough Jr., it shows. The run average of 5.92 for the Houston starters since the start of the playoffs (3.27 against the Braves) says it all. Does that mean the Astros will not have good performances from their...

    PITTSBURGH (AP) — A wide receiver will line up in the slot for the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday night against Seattle. They will find a pass headed their way on third down. They will go over the middle looking to deliver as much punishment as they receive. None of them, however, will do it with the same easy swagger as JuJu Smith-Schuster. The five-year veteran and social media star’s season is over after injuring his right shoulder in a win over Denver last Sunday. And no offense to Diontae Johnson or James Washington or Chase Claypool or anyone else tasked with taking over Smith-Schuster’s myriad job responsibilities, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger acknowledges something will be missing without Smith-Schuster’s familiar No. 19 in the huddle. “You can’t replace JuJu,” Roethlisberger said Wednesday. Few receivers in the league possess Smith-Schuster’s unique skillset. The 24-year-old is an enthusiastic run blocker — he famously won over teammates as rookie four years ago by crushing former Cincinnati linebacker Vontaze Burfict — and a selfless receiver. His yards per reception has dipped from 15.8 in 2017...
    Feel like quitting your job? You’re not alone. More than 15 million U.S. workers have left their jobs since April, and 40% of employees surveyed in the U.S., Australia, Canada, Singapore and the United Kingdom say they’re “somewhat likely” to quit in the next three to six months, a new report says. The report from McKinsey & Co. doesn’t bode well for the scores of employers who are scrambling to fill all of their job openings amid a fractured COVID-19 economy. And it gets worse. The report — which surveyed 5,774 people of working age –additionally shows that 64% of those considering leaving say they would do so without another job in hand. More validation, please So, what’s driving these people to jump ship? Compensation is a factor, but contrary to what most companies might believe, it’s not the main reason people are contemplating quitting. McKinsey’s findings show a majority of employees highlight not feeling valued by their manager (54%) or organization (52%) or not feeling like they belong (51%) as the primary reasons for leaving. Many companies are boosting...
    DEAR ABBY: My husband and I have been together for three years. He recently went back to his home state 1,000 miles away for what I thought would be a two-day trip to grab some things from his late mother’s estate. Jeanne Phillips  He has been unemployed for most of this past year due to the pandemic, so I’m somewhat conflicted about something he told me when I called to ask when he was coming home. He said he found a job and decided he wants to stay there and work for some months to save up enough money to pay off the bulk of our debt. He did not consult me before making this decision. He told me he has worked out a COVID-safe housing arrangement with his sister and his aunt.

    Missouri’s unemployment rate fell slightly in July, the first full month after Missouri Gov. Mike Parson joined more than 20 other states in ending controversial federal supplemental benefits that Republicans argued kept many from returning to the workforce. Unemployment declined from 4.3% in June to 4.2% in July. About 15,000 Missourians gained employment last month. The unemployment rate in July 2020 was 6.8%, after reaching a high of 12.5% in April 2020. Three years ago, the state’s July unemployment was 3.1%. An economist and a business leader in Missouri agreed there are many explanations for the state's unemployment changes, but data doesn’t provide clarity on specifics. There was the $300 a week in federal unemployment benefits on top of state benefits that Parson decided to end early. Employers and job seekers are concerned with the rise of COVID-19 infections, hospitalizations and deaths throughout the state, low vaccination rates and requirements to wear masks. Parents are debating whether to send their children to school or daycare, freeing their time to return to work. Many of those same parents...
    Even prior to the absolute onslaught of anti-trans bills targeting trans youth, especially in regards to age-appropriate, gender-affirming health care and the opportunity to compete on girls’ sports teams, research has shown that trans young people have a really, really hard time in school. Trans youth report higher rates of bullying, harassment, and assault than their cisgender peers. Trans youth—perhaps unsurprisingly given that violence—are more likely to leave high school without a diploma and even to become homeless. While advocates are taking steps to make school a safer, more inclusive space for some of the most vulnerable students, one teacher has gone viral for her dramatic announcement that she’s quitting her job. Why? In her words, because she refuses to “push highly politicized agendas” onto students. What are those “agendas”? If you guessed using the correct names and pronouns for trans youth, you guessed right.  “School board, I quit,” elementary school teacher Laura Morris announced, adding that she quit the school’s policies, trainings, and “quit being a cog in a machine that tells me to push highly politicized agendas on our most vulnerable constituents...

    This is a problem solving icon and soft skill sought after by recruiters in the new workforce. (.) If we look at it with the naked eye, the job market looks dark and stormy.

    On Friday’s “CNN Newsroom,” Labor Secretary Marty Walsh said it’s not time to end the enhanced federal unemployment benefits, and that for some of the people out of work, “their work is gone. Their restaurants are gone. Their industry they worked in is gone. So, there is going to be a component of retraining, rescaling some workers to get them into some other industries here as we continue down this path.” Co-host Jim Sciutto asked, “CNN did find that that extra federal payment means that some people actually make more on unemployment than they did in their lost jobs, perhaps estimates ranging from 25% to 40%. In your view, is it time to end that enhanced unemployment benefit nationally?” Walsh responded, “No, and I don’t think I heard you say that when you looked at the numbers that we’re seeing that this additional $300, cutting it off, seeing more people go into the job market in those states. I mean, the thought process is that people aren’t going to work in those states because they get the $300, and now...
    Naomi Osaka, 23, on Sunday at Roland Garros.

    Jose Luis Pelaez Inc | DigitalVision | Getty Images New York City has joined a short but growing list of jurisdictions aiming to get workers into a retirement plan. Mayor Bill de Blasio signed a bill into law this week that will require most employers not offering a workplace plan to automatically enroll their workers in an individual retirement account through a program administered by the city. While it will take a couple of years for the initiative to become operational, the city is joining a handful of states that already have launched such auto-IRA arrangements or are close to doing so. Additionally, a federal appeals court in California last week rejected a challenge to that state's auto-IRA program, CalSavers. The ruling essentially says that the program does not run afoul of federal rules governing workplace retirement plans. "If anything, this just continues to give states the incentive and momentum to forge ahead and adopt these programs," said Angela Antonelli, executive director of Georgetown University's Center for Retirement Initiatives.

Devastated relatives of Tsakos, a 14-year veteran of the force, have remembered him as a deeply committed policeman and a kind soul who was always eager to help others. "He would help people out left and right," his brother Teddy Tsakos told Newsday. "That’s what most cops do. You don’t hear about it on the news. You only hear...
    At the end of this spring, many college students across the country will take their diplomas and flock to New York City- but only those with rich parents will actually get their shot at Big Apple success. One way young people without credit scores or a set income could score a living space in the city was to pay several months of rent upfront, like a larger security deposit. However, a law passed in 2019 made it illegal for landlords to ask for or accept rent money more than a month ahead of time. This was meant to make it easier for tenants who didn’t have the funds to cover the entire lease but would eventually receive it from their job over time. The other way college students can emigrate to the city is through what’s called a guarantor: a third party, usually a relative, who can act as a co-signer for an apartment lease. Only it can’t just be any relative — their salary needs to be 80 times the monthly rent to qualify. Unfortunately for recent grads like...
    DALLAS—Millions are without power in the Lone Star State as local and state government officials struggle to respond to the most devastating winter storm in over 100 years. Perhaps no scene in this city best captures the absurdity of the predicament Texans find themselves in than the Kay Bailey Hutchison Convention Center. Capacity approximately 500, it is a “warming center”—the only such center opened in a city of 1.3 million people. No cots on offer, nor any guaranteed food. Sitting room only, despite the fact that less than a dozen individuals occupied the warming center as of 5 p.m. When asked, those managing the center were unsure of exactly how many were expected. Despite the warming center, perhaps due to the pandemic, most have opted to either remain at home, or seek refuge with friends, family, or at a hotel. “We were supposed to have rolling outages, so people could stay warm, but I guess my neighborhood didn't make the cut, so I guess we're all supposed to hang out in a warming center all week until they get around...
    Vicki Gunvalson is coming after all the other “Housewives,” claiming they allegedly snubbed her at an event. “I don’t think they gave me the time of day,” Gunvalson — who was on “Real Housewives of Orange County” from its inception in 2006 until 2020 — said on the “Behind the Velvet Rope with David Yontef” podcast on Jan. 21. “They wouldn’t have a job if it wasn’t for me starting this damn thing.” Gunvalson, 58, then singled out Lisa Rinna, accusing the “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star of acting as if she was above the “OG of the OC.” “I said hi to her, and she was like, ‘Oh yeah, you’re Orange County,’” the Coto Insurance owner said. Gunvalson then criticized Rinna, 57, for dancing on tables at Cohen’s baby shower in 2019 — which everyone else there appeared to take part in and enjoy. “She’s up on the tables dancing. I’m like, ‘Why? This is Andy’s baby shower,’” she said. “You want attention? … I just sat back going, ‘Wow, this is a little messed up.’” A...

    You retire awash with relief. You’re thrilled to kiss your working life goodbye. A few months pass, maybe a year. And your relief has turned to regret. You’re bored and restless. You yearn to return to the workforce. But you can’t reclaim your old job—perhaps it no longer exists, it’s filled or you burned bridges on the way out—so you wonder how and where you can restart your career. Let’s say you’re recharged and ready to embark on a new professional adventure without a desperate need for money. You can be choosy. Read: I have a seven-figure nest egg. Am I saving too much for retirement? Still, it’s not easy to re-emerge as a hotshot job candidate that employers snap up. So what should you do? “Think about your passions,” said Christine DiGangi, senior editorial director at the Balance, a New York City-based personal finance platform. “Think about what you always wanted to do but never had a chance to do.” Ask yourself three questions: 1. Do I want to work full-time, part-time or as an independent contractor? 2. Do...

    A 9-year-old girl went viral after drawing her unemployed father’s CV in hopes of helping him find work | 01/20/2021 | ionicons-v5-c19: 00 | Israel Rubio | A nine-year-old girl named Mailén Díaz recently went viral after drawing the CV from his unemployed father hoping to help you find work. The incident occurred in Buenos Aires, Argentina, and the photo moved thousands of Twitter users. The lucky father is called Gregorio de Laferrere, who like his wife was unemployed as a result of the current coronavirus pandemic and that led him to go out for a walk every morning in his neighborhood, ringing the bell of each house he saw to offer its services. However, since many of these people did not know him, they were afraid and did not even want to take care of him, so on more than one occasion he returned home without a peso to feed his daughters, after spending all day searching job. « Corto Pasto. Gustavo. Good luck, daddy. » So in an attempt to help, little Mailén decided to draw a...
    A man living alone on an remote island has revealed how he lived without electricity for five years and relies on neighbours and foraging for food.  Rory Morgan, 41, used to be a successful human resources executive in Dublin before he decided to quit his job when he was 32, and move to Rathlin Island, a 9km-long 2km-wide island located between Northern Island and Scotland.  Rory, who admitted he doesn't like water, fishing or the cold, welcomed Ben Fogle on to the island where he's refurbished his grandmother's 500-year-old cottage, for tonight's New Lives in the Wild, airing at 9pm on Channel 5.  'Quirky' Rory, who survives on little money, works shifts at the local pub and is a volunteer firefighter, tells Ben his house is haunted by ghosts and that he relies on 'foraging' through baskets left by friendly neighbours and the only local shop to feed himself.  But in spite of his cheerful and eccentric facade, 'intrigued' Ben soon discovers his host is a 'selfless' individual who puts his friends before himself, and has travelled six times to...
    Robert Saleh is rushing toward the city where his brother ran for his life. Two moments separated by nearly 20 years are deeply interconnected, because Saleh wouldn’t have his new job as head coach of the Jets — and might not be a football coach at all — if not for what his brother experienced in New York on the morning of Sept. 11, 2001. David Saleh was taking a short break, at 8:46 a.m., from training to be a financial advisor at Morgan Stanley on the 61st floor of World Trade Center’s South Tower. “I was looking down at everything — The Statue of Liberty, yachts,” he told The Post. “Then I saw a fireball straight across the window.” As he descended the stairs, he watched others U-turn at the 40th floor because an intercom message told people it was safe to return to work. He was jolted at the 24th floor by a force so powerful he assumed one building fell on top of another. He passed firefighters making the perilous climb at the 11th floor. He made...

    BOSTON (CBS) – To hear his critics tells it, the 12-year tenure of House Speaker Robert DeLeo has been a festival of insider bullying, hidebound fiscal conservatism and “structural racism,” the epithet flung by Rep. Russell Holmes of Mattapan, a protest candidate to succeed the speaker. It’s predictable, and false. No question, DeLeo played the inside game in a way bound to infuriate outsiders and reformers. He was old-school in his indulgence of patronage and played things close to the vest, limiting public debate and keeping House policy decisions on a short leash. And until just recently, when the House passed a slew of tax hikes, he was a reliable ally of Gov. Charlie Baker in resisting calls for broad-based new taxation. But during the DeLeo years, state spending soared and the House passed national-model gun laws, automatic voter registration, education funding and criminal justice reform and a landmark policing oversight bill plus major increases in state spending on an array of social services. If this is “structural racism” in action, most communities of color might welcome more of it....
    LISBON – Portugal’s government unveiled Friday a 3.4 billion-euro ($4.1 billion) rescue package for national airline TAP Air Portugal that entails more than 3,500 job losses — around one-third of the workforce. The plan, which requires the blessing of European Union authorities, also foresees a payroll cut of up to 25% by lowering wages. If approved, 500 pilots, 750 cabin crew and 750 ground crew will be laid off. Another 1,600 short-term contracts aren’t being renewed at the company, which currently has around 10,000 employees. The fleet is to be cut from 108 to 88 aircraft. The government predicts the flag carrier, in which the Portuguese state has a 72.5% stake, will lose revenue of 6.7 billion euros ($8 billion) through 2025. TAP lost more than 700 million euros ($849 million) in the first nine months of this year as the COVID-19 pandemic crunched the travel business. It saw a fall in passengers numbers of more than 70% compared with last year. The airline was already in difficulty before the pandemic and would go bankrupt without help, Infrastructure Minister Pedro...
    A SINGLE mum-of-two broke down in tears after being left with £25,000 worth of debt after a “cowboy builder” left her with a half-built home and no roof for ten months.  Nicola, a hairdresser from Leeds, appeared on Building Nightmares: House of Horrors on ITV last night and said how he abandoned the job mid-way through the project.  7Hairdresser Nicola, from Leeds, revealed how a 'cowboy' builder left her with no roof for 10 monthsCredit: ITV Nicola said she took out a loan of £20,000, which added up to £25,000 after interest to pay for the work, and paid the rogue builder £15,000 in February.  He said it would cost £17,000 in total and that the work would be completed in six months - but things quickly soured.  She said their relationship broke down after he asked for more funds during the job, but she refused without seeing receipts first.  The extensions never got planning permission, despite the builder saying the work was “fine to do”. 7The single mum-of-two broke down in tears when she shared her story on ITV's...
    Weekday subway service could be nearly chopped in half and over 9,000 transit workers could lose their jobs under an MTA budget proposal being presented to the agency’s board on Wednesday. But the potential cuts could be mitigated if the transit agency receives a hefty $12 billion from the federal government as part of a new COVID-19 relief package, according to MTA senior advisor Ken Lovett. The MTA board will vote on management’s proposal in December and advocates are warning that without the federal help, the cuts are coming. “Riders will be hard hit by unfathomable cuts unless the Feds come through — something they could do tomorrow,” said Lisa Daglian of the Permanent Citizens Advisory Committee, the MTA’s in-house advocacy group. “The MTA simply can’t cut its way out of this situation without devastating riders and the region, and the economy by extension. We need help and we need it now.” The MTA’s subway and buses would bear the brunt of planned downsizing, with over 8,000 jobs slashed between both branches of service. The two combined would be subjected...
