The weblog thing comes from www.blogger.com, which offers us a convenient way to manage the posting, administratively. You don't really need to know all of that, but we have included this explanation so that you won't be confused by the term "blog".

Another important topic here is that since the column includes editorials and comments, you can be sure that we are just exercising our free speech rights as guaranteed by the Constitution and as not yet abridged by a reactionary opportunistic vocal minority.

Disorder or lacking order

 
In a human resource position or hiring position, there will be tinges of worry about current and prospective employees. Now pyshcological diorders may be included as a new battlefield in the future for companies. Already, the American Psychiatric Assocation is propsing to include binge eating and excess gambling to the list of psychiatric disorders that will be in the DSM-5 publishing 2013. If this occurs employers may have to redefine disabililty in their work place. My perspective is that these are problems but I do not believe they are to the point of a disability. This is going to be a significant legal issue because employers may have to look back into their employees' health and finacial history, to see if they have the new types of disabilities. There could be whole new costs to employers arising from the testing for these disorders and payments for accomodations. The new work setting will make it harder on employers to do the normal hiring of new staff and to evaluat their current staff if binge eating and excessive gambling become certifies as disorders.
