    FBI arrests ex-Puerto Rico officials for disaster aid-funded payoffs

    The FBI has arrested two former Puerto Rico officials for funneling disaster aid payments to politically connected contractors.

    The Wednesday arrests have prompted concern on Capitol Hill that the island’s corruption will blunt the effectiveness of a recently passed disaster aid bill. Rep. Raúl Grijalva, D-Ariz., has called for Puerto Rico Gov. Ricardo Rosselló's resignation, according to the Washington Post.

    The FBI indictment charges Puerto Rico's former Education Secretary Julia Keleher, former Health Insurance Agency Chief Ángela Ávila-Marrero, and four others with crimes related to grifting U.S. disaster aid. Keleher and Ávila-Marrero both served in Rosselló's administration before leaving in April and June, respectively.

    Rosselló himself is not under investigation. Grijalva is the chairman of the House Natural Resources Committee, which is overseeing the recovery effort on the island from Hurricane Maria in 2017.

    How does a boss manage a worker who believes their feelings trump reality, right down to the way she "feels" about her misspelled words?
    Gently. And probably badly, even though that's no fault of the boss in question.
    Carol Blymire -- a "communications and public policy executive, branding consultant, professor, writer" -- took to Twitter on Friday to tell the story she overheard of a young writer, probably "in her late 20s," going over edits with her boss.
    They had been speaking in low tones, but their volume got louder toward the end of the conversation because the young woman was getting agitated about a particular edit.
    — Carol Blymire (@CarolBlymire) July 12, 2019
    What issue caused mentor and student such agitation and aggravation? Had the boss been needlessly cruel? Had the young writer pushed some radical agenda, and was refusing to tamp it down a bit? Hardly. They were arguing over how to spell "hamster." You know, the little furry rodents some people keep in one of those winding Habitrail cages.
    The young woman kept saying, “I don’t know why you corrected that because I spell it with the P in it.” The boss said (calmly), “But that’s not how the word is spelled. There is no P in hamster.”
    — Carol Blymire (@CarolBlymire) July 12, 2019
    Young woman: “But you don’t know that! I learned to spell it with a P in it so that’s how I spell it.”

    The boss (remaining very calm and professional), let’s go to https://t.co/n2ZU5Uuuy3 and look it up together.

    (mind you, this is a woman in her late 20s, not a 5th grader)
    — Carol Blymire (@CarolBlymire) July 12, 2019
    Can you guess what happened next? The young woman, according to Blymire, "insists she doesn’t need to look it up because it’s FINE to spell it with a P because that’s HOW SHE WANTED TO SPELL IT."
    The boss says, “Let’s look over the rest of the piece so I can explain the rest of my edits.”

    They do, and I can see the young woman is fighting back tears.

    The boss is calm, cool, and handles this with professionalism and empathy.
    — Carol Blymire (@CarolBlymire) July 12, 2019
    You might think at this point that the writer would have taken a cue from her boss, and engaged herself with the same calm, cool, professionalism. Actually, at this point in the story you wouldn't think that at all, would you?
    And you'd be right not to:
    Boss gets up from table and goes to her office and the young woman can barely hold it together.

    She moves to another table in the common workspace area, drops all her stuff loudly on the table top, and starts texting.

    A minute later, her phone rings.
    — Carol Blymire (@CarolBlymire) July 12, 2019
    Our young hero (in her own mind only), had apparently texted her mother for support in this Hampster Crisis, and her dutiful mother called her right up. If one of my kids had called me or my wife in a similar situation, I know exactly what either one of us would have said.
    "It's spelled 'hamster.' Now go apologize to your boss for causing a scene."
    I imagine if you'd read this far, you'd have given similar advice. I also imagine that you're already certain that's not what happened here.
    The young woman put her mom on speakerphone, "IN THE WORKPLACE," as Blymire caps-locked for emphasis, and what happened next would be funny if it weren't so sad.
    The mother tells her that her boss is an idiot and she doesn’t have to listen to her and she should go to the boss’ boss to file a complaint about not allowing creativity in her writing.
    — Carol Blymire (@CarolBlymire) July 12, 2019
    The young woman kept saying, “I thought what I wrote was perfect and she just made all these changes and then had the nerve to tell me I was spelling words wrong when I know they are right because that is how I have always spelled them.”
    — Carol Blymire (@CarolBlymire) July 12, 2019
    Feelings trump reality. Misspelling words is "creative."
    The call ended, Blymire wrote, with the writer asked her mom if she should take the matter over her boss's head: "I mean, I always spell hamster with a P, she has no right to criticize me."

    FEMINIST WINS AWARD FOR CHAIR DESIGNED TO STOP ‘MANSPREADING’

    We've all been there: having successfully bagged a seat on the tube against all odds, we find ourselves squished between two men, both sitting with knees so far apart that our own could not get closer together to avoid being knocked.

    Yes, manspreading is possibly one of the biggest bug bears for women on public transport - and now a feminist designer has come to the rescue.

    Laila Laurel, a 3D Design & Craft graduate from the University of Brighton, has designed a chair that features a triangular seat which encourages men to sit with their legs closed, creating a potential solution to the scourge of manspreading.

    Created as part of her final-year project entitled “A Solution for Manspreading", Laurel also created a second chair intended for women which uses a small piece of wood in the centre of the seat to encourage female sitters to rest with her legs parted, allowing them to take up more space.

    The graduate says that her design is not to be taken too seriously (uh huh)Created as part of her final-year project entitled “A Solution for Manspreading", Laurel also created a second chair intended for women which uses a small piece of wood in the centre of the seat to encourage female sitters to rest with her legs parted, allowing them to take up more space.

    The graduate says that her design is not to be taken too seriously but admits that the chairs do give a “physicality to an issue women face in quite a fun yet literal way”.

    but admits that the chairs do give a “physicality to an issue women face in quite a fun yet literal way”.

    Speaking to The Independent, Laurel says: “My design practice is contextualised within fourth wave feminism and another huge inspiration for these pieces was Laura Bates’ Everyday Sexism Project, a platform in which women can testify about the sexism they have experienced.

    As well as receiving plenty of praise for her design, Laurel’s work has been presented with the Belmond Award for emerging talent.

    The luxury hotel and leisure company says it looks for designs that show “imaginative and cleverly presented ideas with a considered overall look and feel along with the quality of work displayed”.

    Following the announcement, the judging panel said that Laurel’s chair was “a bold, purpose-driven design that explores the important role of design in informing space, a person’s behaviour and society issues of today”.
