What were some “red flags” new hires shouldn't ignore when starting a new job?Let’s discuss 10 red flags to watch for within the first 3 months of your job. 3 months gives you ample time to find. My credentials for this answer: 20+ years in the corporate America cube farm. Fortune 500, mid-level, and start-ups. Ready…Let’s go get it.Has your job, in the first few weeks, suddenly morphed into something different from the job role on your employment contract? And, if you call management out on it, and they use silly phrases like not “being flexible”. Congratulations, you’ve found your first red flagAside: If you learn nothing else from this post, read this: “Flexible” and “Team Player” mean do more work, but not get paid for it. Learn this quickly. Because the most important thing every morning is waking up, looking in the mirror, and being able to respect yourself.If you work in a job as a “doer”, such as developer, builder of things, etc., do you find yourself booked up in many meetings? Then congratulations, you’ve discovered a red flag. “Doers” should not be in too many meetings. Because gasp…they need time to actually do stuff. If management cannot squash this early so you can do what you do best, you’ve found yourself at a mismanaged company.In the first few weeks of joining a company, do you notice lots of “cliques” and keep running into “unexpected, unspoken rules?” If so, you’ve dug up another red flag.I remember working at a company years back, doing development. In my interview, I was crystal clear…”I don’t like filling out a lot of paperwork to push code. I just want to code, test quickly, and push it out there.” Alas, 3 weeks after getting hired, management “revealed” that every code push needs a 3 page document filled out, a web form filled out, 3 layers of approval, just to get a change in. It’s ridiculous. The more red tape, the bigger the red flag.Does your company push “social-time” off hours and unnecessary get-togethers? Do they push, and I mean push charities, social justice groups, and other hootenanny garbage? Congratulations, you’ve found another red flag. Nowhere in any standard employment contract anywhere, does it state you must be active with charity, social justice causes, and any of that other garbage. Nor should it, because none of that has one iota to do with your job and the company making money. Not one iota. So if it’s pushed on you, run for the hills.Does your company value “in-office” time more than they do accomplishments during your work hours? If so, you’ve found another archaic, and detrimental red-flag. If I get 8 hours of work done in 2 hours, then what I do after that shouldn’t matter. Because, it’s not like corporate will pay you more for additional effort. Great bosses will let you leave early and give flex time when you pump out work quickly.Do scheduled meetings always run over time, or start late, or both? Congratulations, you’ve found another red-flag. Time wasters. Also, meetings, especially corporate meetings, are notorious for posturing and politics. And if you aren't a fan of meetings like me, then this is a HUGE red flag. Meetings should have an agenda, allow no rambling, and get to the point quick. As in, who is doing what, who needs help, and when can we expect things to get done. That’s it. No more.Are you having a hard time finding a document about annual raises and bonuses? As in, you do “x” and “y”, and this is how you advance. And when you ask about it, does your manager hem and haw or avoid the subject. Congratulations, you’ve found another red flag found at 90% or more of corporate jobs.Does the majority of people at or above your level use unnecessary buzz words to describe something? As in, can you find a word from grade 5 to grade 7 on the Flesch-Kincaid reading level to replace their silly buzzword, and not only keep the meaning of what they were trying to say, but enhance it? Congratulations, you’ve found another red flag. The key to communication is simplicity and clarity. And buzzwords violate both those rules. And if we can’t have a simple conversation about “my contract” and not “annual incentive protocol”, then we have a red flag on our hands.Do the dumbest people get promoted, and the superstars get passed over or marginalized? Congratulations young padawan, you’ve uncorked another red flag. And this, like #7, happens at 90% or more of corporate companies. It’s red flag football, and you never score a touchdown.Does your new company change “direction” every 2–4 weeks? Pat yourself on the back detective, you’ve found another red flag. If management cannot figure out what to do, and they get paid large coin to do one job, then you’ve found yourself at an insane asylum. Best to pull the cord and exit stage left.Heed these 10 rules my friends, they just might save your life down the road.
What is the best advice you can give a new teacher?Lecturing: The results you get are directly proportional to the effort you put in. You will magically become a better lecturer if you put a lot of effort into preparing your lectures and write down most of what you will say in advance. (If you want to do an especially good job, rehearse your entire lecture at least once before presenting it.) But if you start writing your lecture the morning of the lecture, or get less than five hours of sleep the night before, you will probably do a shabby job.If your lecture is longer than an hour, it’s good to have a break halfway through the lecture, since students get restless when they have to listen to you for too long. As a bonus, students might come to your desk and ask questions during the break, and then you’ll know what people understood and what they didn’t.Engagement: You will win the hearts of students if you clearly show that you care about them, and want them to have the best possible experience. Two ways you can do this are byActively soliciting feedback from the students. When I was teaching I offered students extra credit for filling out feedback forms every week, and actively changed my teaching style based on what people said in the feedback forms. This was an easy way to both improve my teaching and make people feel heard.Holding extra office hours on weeks when the material is particularly difficult. On some weeks I would hold six hours of office hours because the first students to fill out the feedback form were reporting that they spent longer than usual on the problem set.Backend stuff: Your TAs’ performance is critical to the success of your class. You should of course try to hire TAs who have a solid understanding of the material, and have good teaching evaluations from previous quarters. But you should also set them up for success by making sure you have high-quality solution sets ready before the first office hours of the week. If you don’t do this, many of the TAs will not know how to solve the problems, or will lead students to incorrect or conflicting solutions in office hours.(In general you should produce solution sets yourself instead of relying on TAs to generate them, because TAs will in general write solutions that are very brief and sometimes incorrect. The level of detail in the solution set should be the level of detail expected from the students; it shouldn’t just be a “sketch” of the right answer.)
What is a durable power of attorney?A durable power of attorney, or DPOA, is a legal document which works to protect the rights, independence and decision making of the aging parents as well as simplify the eventual transition to elderly care. DPOA also serves as a safety net in the event of possible physical or mental incapacitation, ensuring that a trusted appointee has the legal right to make important decisions on behalf of another individual.DPOA also provides a security and peace of mind to the aging parents that there is someone they trust, who will fulfill their wishes and take care of all the legal and financial matters as well as their medical decision when they become incapacitated.THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN A STANDARD POA AND A DURABLE POAA power of attorney have two general classes: non-durable vs. durable powers of attorney.If not explicitly designated as durable, a non-durable power of attorney is generally create for a specific transaction or a period of time and the power ends when the principal becomes incapacitated.Whiel on the other hand , a durable power of attorney (DPOA) is much more comprehensive and is usually not limited to a specific transaction. It remains in effect, even after the Principal is declared incapacitated.HOW DURABLE POWER OF ATTORNEY WORKSLike a wills & trust or other similar document, a durable POA can be written to begin immediately, or to start only after a certain trigger event, such as when an elderly parent is legally declared incapacitated.For the latter case, your elderly parent would be in full control of his or her own medical, financial and other legal decisions, until declared either physically or mentally incapacitated.
Have you ever walked out of a doctor's office because the doctor was being disrespectful to you?I was about 16 when this happened, and I refused to go to any doctor for 2 years fearing something bad would happen. This doctor was so unprofessional that my story might sound fake or exaggerated but i PROMISE you, it’s not.I had pretty bad depression, but I didn’t want to take medication for it so I always informed my doctors that I didn’t need it and I was fine on my own. This year, I got into a pretty bad relationship that made it harder for me to deal with depression. I self-harmed often and tried to commit suicide once. I told my mom I needed to go to the doctors and get a prescription because i couldn’t handle it anymore. Well, my mom had just changed jobs and therefore, had an insurance change, which means I had to get a completely new set of doctors. She took me to a doctors office in the ghetto city (I guess that was the only office her new insurance would cover, because we lived in a wealthy city and even the surrounding cities were fairly affluent).When we got there, the nurse took my vitals, measured me, weighed me, all that stuff and then had me wait in one of the rooms. I had to go to the bathroom and on my way there, I overheard the doctor scold the nurse for taking my vitals, etc. The nurse argued that it was procedure for every new patient, but the doctor said it specifically wasn’t necessary for me. I didn’t think it was weird at the time. When I got back to the room and the doctor walked in, the FIRST thing she said wasn’t hello, it wasn’t acknowledging me at all, it was telling my mom that if i was “too much for my mom to handle, she could always provide my mom with a brochure about giving me up to the state.” WTF?? the next thing the doctor did was ask a series of questions about depression off of a paper script. halfway through the paper, she stops and tells me that “i shouldn’t be depressed because i have a mom, i have a roof over my head, i have clean clothes, etc.“ the thing is, she doesn’t say it empathetically but she says it as if i’m ungrateful instead of depressed… anyways… when she sees that i answered “yes” to suicide attempt, she blames my mom for not taking me to the emergency room. My mom explained to her that she did call the 24-hour nurses hotline and they told her what to do and when i was showing signs that i was fine, they said it’s up to her whether she wants to take me to the ER or not but to keep monitoring me. This doctor told my mom that the nurses hotline “doesn’t exist” and kept trying to say that she’ll report my mom to CPS. I was literally there, i heard my mom on the phone with the nurses hotline the whole time. Even after this doctor visit i looked it up and YUP ITS STILL THERE. anyways!!! the doctor starts doing a check up on me and i tell her that i got my ear cartilage pierced TWO DAYS AGO and it’s sensitive. she looks at it, sees that it’s red, and says it’s infected. it’s not infected, it’s brand new lol. she then GRABS MY EAR AND TWISTS IT SEVERAL TIMES. i was screaming and crying and all she did was keep saying “does it hurt? how bout now? still hurt?” by then i was in tears. later on, she goes through the questionnaire again and sees that i marked “yes” to sexually active. she asked if it was one person or multiple people. i said just my boyfriend of two years. she tells me that he “probably doesn’t love me and is only using me for sex” and at this point i realize why am i letting this woman berate me all this time? she knows i’m here for depression but all she has done is make me feel worse than anyone ever has. i walked out and waited outside for 30 minutes before my mom walked out. to this day, i still don’t know what happened after i left. two weeks later though, we got a letter in the mail from that doctor’s office saying i needed to finish my appointment or else they would report to the police that my mom never took me to the ER that one time.BTW, not sure if anyone’s wondering but the doctor works out of a Molina office in Colton, CA. old black lady. don’t know her name.
My mom wants one of her children to sign off on a Do-Not-Resuscitate order. How would you feel about doing that for your parent(s)? More details in comment.I’m not sure what country you are in.This is what has happened to us.In 1999 my father who was fit and healthy had a massive stroke. In three days things went from rehabilitation to he’s probably not going to make it.On the Friday night my sister phoned from hospital and asked me to explain to my mother that the hospital needed to know what to do if Dad went into a medical emergency. They strongly suggested a non-resusitation order.We talked it through and I explained things to my mother. If he survived he would not have any function. He would be a vegetable.Mum agreed.It was hard as it was on the spot. and obviously Dad was unable to answer for himself. The worst thing would have been for him to be pulled round in this instance.As it turned out nothing could have been done anyway.For mum she is now 92 and each time she has gone into hospital she is asked what she wants to happenin the case of an operation. She has gone with resusitation as she still has quality of life.At the moment she still has the ability to consent and that is our guide. Our discussions are that at some stage her quality of life will not be good and no heroic efforts will be made.It is not the same as euthanasia and you cannot keep someone alive for ever. There is a point where you are only delaying the inevitable and in my fathers case he could have been in a lot of suffering only to die a long lingering death.I will try and respect my mother and do what she would want me to do if she is unable to respond herself. This will be done in consultation with doctors and my sister.Hope this helps.
How do you legally prevent others from putting you in the hospital when you have cancer and want to die at home?If you have your mental faculties intact and are over 18, people cannot force you to seek medical care. The US medical laws are very clear that only minors and people incapable of making decisions for themselves are subject to their will being overruled. And even if the patient is incapable of making decisions, a living will or an advance directive takes precedence over decisions made later on by someone who has medical power of attorney.You may want to visit the hospital though. Not for cancer treatment, but for hospice/end-of-life services that can be given to someone at home or as outpatient procedures. The focus is not on prolonging life, but ensuring you die a peaceful, comfortable, and respectful death. It may mean a few trips to the hospital, but they know the longer you stay in the hospital the less comfortable you are, and if you are too uncomfortable they are not doing the job they were hired to do. Hospice providers may also be paying attention to your loved ones and help them through this difficult time.
Do I need to be healthy in order to fill out an advance directive?In the US, you only have to be competent to make out Advanced directives.. Competent is a legal term indicating that you are capable of making your own decisions. You can certainly be healthy to do so, and all people should consider doing so.Advanced directives are interesting because they only gain legal force when you are not competent. Whenever you regain your ability to make decisions, they have no more power any more, unless you again lose your ability to make decisions.Advanced directives can take on different forms. Most states have so called “living wills”. These are a special kind of advanced directive spelling out specific preferences, usually about specific life prolonging interventions, under very specific circumstances. These were some the first advanced medical directives to gain legal standing and popular attention. A lot of people still use Living Will and Advanced Directives, as interchangeable terms. However, Living Wills are only one type of advanced directives, and are very limited in scope.Another common form of advanced directive is the Durable Medical Power of Attorney. These are much broader and useful documents. I have seldom seen Living Wills be useful in practice, but Durable Medical Powers of Attorney can make things easier for the patient, the doctors, and the family alike.What the Durable Medical Power of Attorney does is designate a person or persons to make medical decisions for you if you are unable to do so yourself. The document might include some specific instructions, or may not. The reason that they are so useful is two fold. The big thing is that they clear up to everyone who is in charge. In medicine, the patient is always in charge as long as he is capable of making and communicating decisions. When he can’t do that, who calls the shots? Well, some states spell that out in law, but that might not reflect the real dynamics of a family, and people will disagree, or not want the burden. This not only can make things hard for the doctors, who need permission or guidance to do their jobs, but can cause all sorts of family troubles, with children and siblings and others all having an opinion on what is best, and a lot of worries about making hard and terrible decisions. With the document, all that is cleared up ahead of time.But the biggest reason that Durable Medical Powers of Attorney are so helpful to all concern is that people talk about them. The patient chooses their own power of attorney according to preference. But before you list Aunt Ida as your Medical Power of Attorney, you will ask her. Then you will find out if Ida really wants that responsibility. And you will also need to talk to Ida about the kind of things you want or do not want. She will probably know you, and your values. Real life medical decisions are complicated and impossible to list completely in advance. But Ida will have a decent idea of what you do or don’t want, and will be able to represent your interests to the doctor. And all the other family members will know that she is who you wanted to make those decisions. It lifts so many burdens.It isn’t always easy to make medical decisions for another person, especially a person you love and care about. They can be life and death. People struggle with these sorts of ideas and might have strong opinions of their own. However, I always make it clear to those designated with Medical Power of Attorney that their job is not to figure out what is right in their own eyes. Their job is to tell me and other health care providers what the patient would want if he was able to talk to us. Their job is to keep the patient and his or her wishes front and center, as it should be.Like I said at the beginning, you can be healthy and make advanced directives. You never know what the next day will bring, so there isn’t a bad time. I think the Durable Medical Power of Attorney is a particularly good document for a young, healthy individual. It just designates someone you want to make decisions for you when you can’t, and it is only in effect when, and for as long as, you are unable to make your own decisions. As long as you keep up with your designee and still want them to be your power of attorney, you can “update” your wishes as often as you and your designee talk about such things. This is the way that people generally want to take care of their lives. The document just helps protect that desire in law from the hardship and heart ache of serious illness.
