nobody calls job interviewTrisha Zulic, a hiring recruiter based in San Diego, got an email from a job applicant recently with a single word in the subject line: “Management.” The email itself included only four words: “Attached is my resume.” Zulic was trying to fill management jobs at four different companies, so she emailed back and asked which position the applicant was applying for. The response she got: “Any company. Management.”

At that point, she moved on to the next candidate. “He didn’t even know what job he was applying for,” Zulic says. “I didn’t even look at his resume.”

occupational therapy

Among the health professions, occupational therapists are poised to be highly impactful allies for families, workers and employers. They are trained to help people achieve the highest potential possible by playing to their unique strengths as they relate to specific environments and desired activities. Occupational therapy is the newest and fastest-growing department at Mana­kai o Malama. A heightened level of awareness both in the workplace and among other health professionals will bear much fruit for all parties as it enhances health outcomes, quality of life, productivity and job satisfaction.

OTs are trained to "assist clients (people, organizations, and populations) to engage in everyday activities or occupations that they want and need to do in a manner that supports health and participation," according to the American Occupational Therapy Association.

That Florida woman's canceled Blue Cross policy? It's junk insurance.
She can get a real plan for only $165 a month

insurance-rip-offBy now you’ve probably heard horror stories about how the Affordable Care Act (ACA), otherwise known as Obamacare, has forced so many people to lose their insurance policies. You’ve heard that affordable health insurance policies are being canceled and replaced with policies that are far more expensive than the canceled policies. But have you heard that across the country, insurance regulators are cracking down on the private insurance companies, because of the scam they are running on their customers? Probably not.

HDRCQUESTION: What enforcement authority does the Hawaii Disability Rights Center have?

ANSWER: Our core function is to monitor the facilities that exist for people with disabilities and the treatment provided to individuals with disabilities. We have advocates who routinely go to the Hawaii State Hospital and monitor the facility. We don’t have to announce that we are coming. We go there, and our advocates look around to make sure that no one is being mistreated.
