Equal Pay For Women            


            Last week the Institute for Women’s Policy Research released a report[1] about the employment and earning status of women in the U.S. The report noted that at the current rate of progress, from 1960 to today, the wage gap between men and women will finally close in ... 2058! That’s right, wage equality is a mere 43 years away. The pressing nature of the wage equality issue was also raised last month at the 87th Annual Academy Awards, when Patricia Arquette[2], who, after winning for Best Supporting Actress, said, “It’s our time to have wage equality once and for all and equal rights for women in the United States of America.” The speech was met with rousing applause and support not just from Hollywooders, but also from Hillary Clinton[3] and Nancy Pelosi[4], who echoed the actress’s words.

The Avengers teaches Effective Management and Leadership Skills


The Leadership Qualities Captain America Taught My Seven-Year-Old


            There’s a wonderful scene in the first Avengers superhero movie that made a huge impact on my seven-year-old son.  Aliens are invading NYC.  It’s a total mess. Iron Man turns to Captain America and says, “Call it Cap.”  Cap starts telling each Avenger what their roles are, and they get to it.  The last guy is the Hulk, who isn’t exactly known for following orders.  Cap’s final instruction, “And Hulk  . . . smash.”  The Hulk smiles a big, toothy grin because going on a rampage is what he does best. At that moment, you know Cap’s team is clicking, and the aliens don’t have a chance.

In a recent ruling from the Maryland Court of Special Appeals, Blue v. Arrington, Case No. 1036, Sept. Term 2013, (January 30, 2015), the court upheld the provision of the Maryland Local Government Tort Claims Act (“LGTCA”) which prohibits a local government employee from suing “a fellow employee for tortious acts or omissions committed within the scope of employment if the injury sustained by the local government employee is compensable under the Maryland Workers’ Compensation Act.” See Md. Code Ann., Cts. & Jud. Proc. § 503(c).
