  • Episode 43: ADA and Employment: Disclosure and Reasonable Accommodations

    in Education

    A hallmark of the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA) is the provision of reasonable accommodation to ensure equality in the workplace. In this episode of ADA Live, we will discuss what is and is not reasonable accommodation and how to request accommodation. When employers hear the word “disability,” they may become concerned with cost and legal liability. Often, employers do not understand that they too have rights under ADA. Employees generally do not know that they have responsibilities in disclosing disability and the need for accommodation.   This presentation will address the following questions: What is “Reasonable Accommodation?” What is not “Reasonable Accommodation?” When can someone get an accommodation? How do I ask for accommodation? What rights and responsibilities do I have as a person with a disability? What rights and responsibilities does an employer have? When is the “right time” to disclose a need for accommodation? What are the concerns people have when they disclose a disability and how are they protected?

  • Being You With Kids

    in Education

    Do you ever find it difficult to be around some people yet when you are with a child it is so easy? Is that because you can be yourself with kids and it is more difficult with adults? That’s because kids don’t tend to judge and adults do.
    Mary Case will join us this week in a conversation about being you with kids. We will talk about the gift you are when you allow yourself to totally be yourself with kids and how that awareness can shift how you interact with adults as well. How much can  you change with kids and the world around you just by being you?
    Mary has been a gift to kids in her classroom as an elementary school teacher for almost 30 years. She is a space with kids that allow them to be themselves and be successful in their lives. Mary is also an Access Consciousness™ Certified Facilitator, Access™ Body Process Facilitator and a member of the Canadian Masters Triathlon Team.

  • Is The Earth Round Like a Watermelon Or Flat Completely.

    in Education

    I spent several weeks last summer arguing with a flat earther. None of what you posted would convince them. The guy I was arguing with told me every single picture or video NASA has ever shown of the Earth from outer space is faked, so none of those prove anything. NASA has never even sent anything into space and faked any footage you’ve ever seen of launches, so you can’t use anything from NASA to prove the Earth is round. This also makes him a moon landing denier by default because he thinks every single NASA launch is faked. To quote him “no man made object has ever left Earth’s atmosphere at any point in human history.”
    I tried going back to Ancient Greece and telling him about angles of shadows. Nope, the surface isn’t perfectly flat and does have a very minor curve to it, thus shadow angles don’t prove anything.  So I put my knowkedge of etymology to work, which all minds can do exercise on. Flat in dictionary definitions mean have no curve/curvature.  I can tell at least two reasons which affirm curce. Naturally human experience says the earth rotates in a retrograde direction, People moves easterly to meet the sun coming west a dayly operation. When night falls on the east coast three hours before it does on the California west coast?  What harm is done if you never ponderwhether Earth is round or flat-- It is not like beliving in a spirit-God that no one ever seen.
