I do! Interviewed in my senior year of college with a partner from PWC DACR (dispute analysis and corporate recovery) practice. A few days prior I had a pretty serious oral surgery so my face was swollen and I had a black and blue under my left yet. His first question was "Are you married?", when I said No, he asked me "Would you boyfriend object if you have to work long hours?" I was really surprised by these questions and still wonder whether this constituted discrimination, whether maybe he was trying to be helpful in uncovering a possible case of domestic violence, and whether I had to call him on it or explain what happened.

And now Unicef: The deputy chief executive of Unicef resigned on Thursday after admitting that he engaged in inappropriate behavior with female staffers at his previous job. Justin Forsyth said he did not want the media coverage of the indiscretions to damage Unicef's cause. Forsyth sent inappropriate comments to three younger female members of his staff while he was chief executive of Save the Children from 2011 to 2015. The comments alluded to the women's appearances, reports said. Save the Children UK said the comments led to reviews, which resulted in "unreserved apologies" to the staffers. "I apologized unreservedly at the time and face to face. I apologize again," Forsyth said in a statement. - REUTERS [ Reply | More ]

Is your next post going to be that the teens speaking out were actors? And then are you going to post that Putin paid those actors just like he paid the Sandy Hook parents to pretend they had children who died? You are EVIL.

[ - ] A few points on Disney. There are three hour waits at the seven dwarf ride. You can get free water anywhere. If it’s not a monorail, not worth staying on site. Bus takes forever. Bring your own food as much as possible. Go to the baby center to cool off and charge your phone - even if you don’t have a baby. 23 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

Biggest point: Avoid February vacation week if you can. Also, totally worth staying on site if you stay on Epcot side - you can walk to both Epcot and Hollywood Studios. Staying on site also allows you to book Fast Passes 60 days in advance so you don't have to wait 3 hours for any rides. [ Reply | More ]

NP: Fast Passes are timed reservations with an hour window. There are only so many given out for each hour each day, it's not unlimited. They're given out first come first served. If you stay on site you can sign up for them 60 days in advance, everyone else can do so 30 days in advance. It sucks, because you need to plan which park you're going to go to on each day, but so worth it to do it for the "popular" rides (like 7 Dwarfs, Frozen, etc.) You don't need them for things like Dumbo or Small World.

If you stay on any of their property, you get to go to Harry Potter an hour early every day ( just the one at Island of adventure) and get a free Universal express pass which fast passes you to every ride. It is great. [ Reply | More ]

Do not agree on the monorail hotels. I had stayed in Grand Floridian and All Star. It took about the same time to get back to the room after the firework. Monorail carried very few passengers, even if you're going the opposite directions. Whereas there are tons of buses. However, if you're staying in the mid-level resorts like the Caribbean, they don't have as many buses as All Star. [ Reply | More ]

NP. Here are my tips : Bring your own fat pen and book for character signatures. Freeze a bottle or 2 water bottles and use them to cool food or whatever and they'll be a nice treat in the afternoon. Get a haircut on Main Street MK (really nice memory for kids). Avoid any major holidays. Plan plan plan. [ Reply | More ]

Don't go during any school holidays ever. It is just not worth it. Go during the last week in August. They usually have free dining and it is not that crowded. Stay on property. If you drive in , you have to wait on line to park, wait to get on a parking cart to take you to the front. The time is the same as the worst bus. You need to plan 180 before so you can do your fast pass asap. Always do you last day first as the best FP will go quickly and the others will be there when you backtrack. [ Reply | More ]

[ - ] Remember that not very long ago, African-Americans were told "it's just life that you are not allowed to use this water fountain or sit at this lunch counter or ride in this city bus unless you sit in the very back." Those Americans and the other Americans who knew it was wrong were told "shut up, there is nothing that can be done." But there was. RESIST. Vote out every politician who takes NRA blood money. They are NOT going to do anything but promote bump stocks and more assault weapon sales. Vote them out. 7 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]
