Should You Say
Even an incentive with no financial value might affect the credibility of an endorsement and would need to be disclosed. The Guides give the example of a restaurant patron being offered the opportunity to appear in television advertising before giving his opinion about a product. Because the chance to appear in a TV ad could sway what someone says, that incentive should be disclosed.
Should You Say
Some people might be inclined to leave a positive review in an effort to earn more money for charity. The overarching principle remains: If readers of the reviews would evaluate them differently knowing that they were motivated in part by charitable donations, there should be a disclosure. Therefore, it might be better to err on the side of caution and disclose that donations are made to charity in exchange for reviews.
Yes. Knowing that you received free travel and accommodations could affect how much weight your readers give to your thoughts about the product, so you should disclose that you have a financial relationship with the company.
No. You have the constitutional right to remain silent. In general, you do not have to talk to law enforcement officers (or anyone else), even if you do not feel free to walk away from the officer, you are arrested, or you are in jail. You cannot be punished for refusing to answer a question. It is a good idea to talk to a lawyer before agreeing to answer questions. In general, only a judge can order you to answer questions. (Non-citizens should see Section IV for more information on this topic.)
Yes, there are two limited exceptions. First, in some states, you must provide your name to law enforcement officers if you are stopped and told to identify yourself. But even if you give your name, you are not required to answer other questions. Second, if you are driving and you are pulled over for a traffic violation, the officer can require you to show your license, vehicle registration and proof of insurance (but you do not have to answer questions). (Non-citizens should see Section IV for more information on this topic.)
Last week, The Associated Press took an important step in that direction. The new edition of its widely used AP Stylebook declares that "addict" should no longer be used as a noun. "Instead," it says, "choose phrasing like he was addicted, people with heroin addiction or he used drugs." In short, separate the person from the disease.
And perhaps most important, the new stylebook specifies that journalists should not use "dependence" as a synonym for addiction. In fact, "substance dependence" was dropped as the official diagnosis for addiction by psychiatry's diagnostic manual, the DSM, in 2013, in part because it erroneously implied that the two are the same.
We talked to several workplace experts to gain their insight on phrases you shouldn't say to your boss, even if you're close. Responses ranged from simple questions such as "Can I be honest?" to how you ask for vacation days. Many of these aren't outright forbidden but should be carefully worded.
"For example, if your boss says, 'Do you have time to work on the Smith project today?' you shouldn't just say, 'No.' Instead, try something like, 'Today will be a challenge if you still want me to focus on that company presentation. Would you prefer I work on this today instead?'"
You may not have the answer to every question, but your best guess and a promise to find out is much better than a shrug of the shoulders, Taylor says. While friends have each others' backs, "anytime your boss would need to do the work for you, assume that's not a path you should take."
Making plans with your boss outside of work is fine, but you should be discreet about it. Talking about your plans together in front of the entire office could make your coworkers jealous and lead to accusations of preferential treatment.
It's your responsibility to ask your boss if priorities have changed, as your objectives must stay aligned with your manager's. "Priorities are rarely stagnant, so as in most cases, your better option is to ask if you should reshuffle them," Randall recommends.
Gamification is not a magical wand that can be waved to suddenlytransform an organization and culture. Those who have embraced gamification knowthat simply introducing points, badges, or leaderboards on an application orplatform does not guarantee success. Here are five situations in which youshould probably say no to gamification.
When we are moved to make a sick person feel better so that we may feel better, it is unfair. We can reasonably assume that our empathic distress is less severe, and less important, than the emotional suffering of the sick or injured person. Our empathic distress will also pass when we leave the person's hospital room or home. We should try to resist our impulse to reduce our empathic suffering.
Your "competencies" section should list the skills and areas of proficiency you can bring to your next role. List your professional skills that are in line with the position for which you're applying, and that are relevant to the experience you've listed in your résumé.
The "additional experience" section should showcase the ways you prefer to make positive impacts in your community and/or your professional industry. Describe the volunteer roles and responsibilities that have sharpened your professional skills and led you to acquire new ones.
Overall, your résumé should thread together complementing roles, skills, and accomplishments that qualify you for your next step in your career path. Don't waste your (or the employer's) time reviewing duties and responsibilities that distract from or simply are not relevant to your professional goals and how they relate to the job you're applying for.
TIP: Tailor, tailor, tailor!! Your résumé should reflect the set of skills/experiences that qualify you for a specific position. Take the time to tailor your résumé to the different types of positions you are looking to apply for.
Just because you observe something listed above doesn't mean that anything suspicious is occurring. That decision is made by the officer who responds and investigates the situation. In order to do that, you need to call first! If you find yourself thinking that something or someone is odd or out of place and whether or not you should call the police, call MSPD at 305-888-9711.
No matter when they say their first words, it's a sure bet they already understand much of what you say. Your child should be able to respond to simple commands ("Roll the ball to Mommy") and look at or point to familiar objects when you name them.
What is most important, then, is not the timing of when you express love for the first time but rather the sincerity. If you sincerely love your significant other, you should be able to spontaneously communicate this to them without worry.
But I also have this overdeveloped sense of responsibility where I think that I should be working on making other people feel better or helping them live their lives in ways that are outside my jurisdiction. 041b061a72
