  • Knowledge Universe reaches $1.6 billion in revenue

    Unfortunately the above complaints demonstrate a phenomenon not limited to KU. I have worked in Early Education for a quarter of a century in many different settings in several regions of the U.S. Mistreatment of early childhood educators is rampant. They are given impossible workloads, expected to meet immense regulatory expectations,ed ucate children during the most crucial years of their lives, be loving and nurturing, and do it all while getting ...

  • The fix: dealing with more drug use, fewer workers
    Guest
    Not including marijuana, but hard drugs and alcohol used by workers should be dealt with in the harshest possible way available. Some I wish, should be hung on the front entrance of the workplace with a sign nailed on there chest proclaiming them as dangerous workplace hazards removed for your benifit

    Don't know about the other areas but Safeway was able to keep both stores in Klamath open, why couldn't they? Oh yah there prices were way out of control. Double on some items as compared to another popular store in town.

  • Is there life beyond Reed?
    Guest
    Thanks for the nice comments, Chris. I loved getting to spend time at Reed and getting to know the culture. You have a point about the deck. And I agree that the magic you describe is still happening at Reed. But I respectfully disagree with your take on the conclusion. It doesn't say there's no room for the intellectual magic. Rather it asks the question inherent throughout the article: Can that magic co-exist with the business end of things?

  • Is there life beyond Reed?
    Guest
    Nice piece. Interesting portrayal of a legendary Portland institution adapting to new realities without compromising its integrity. I thought the subhead was a little unfair. “Climbs down” from the Ivory Tower suggests surrender. Why not “opens up” or “repaints” or something? I also thought the conclusion— the magic is gone—was unsupported. Awakening a young person’s intellectual curiosity is a powerful transformation with lifelong consequences—de ...

    Guest
    Actually this model is not new, and has been tried in many different formats around the country without much success. There was even one in Portland called Motherfields in 2013. The problem is that the window of a woman's' life when both coworking and childcare are needed is small, probably less than 2 years, whereas traditional coworking involves a larger group of people for a longer time.

    Guest
    He did cheat and lost his license. He lost privledges at all Portland hospitals. I am a very sad person and he was watching over me while my surgeon went back to get his fellowship. I continued to complain I wasn't well and he suggested we do a cat scan, I called later that afternoon and his med assistant told me there was nothing wrong yet I could hardly move. Two months later I end up with 2 accesses that were never discussed because he never ...

  • Aim High
    Guest
    My biggest issue with this is that it completely leaves out education in the construction trades. Some recent studies illustrate that over the next 10 years, close to 50% of our country's construction trades people will retire, and we are not filling the hopper with new young recruits. This career path will not only be in demand more and more in the future, but it provides an excellent lifetime earnings potential (journeymen in most trades are in ...

    The tech industry does have a long way to go, and companies like Metal Toad are helping. The culture fit isn't about external qualities like age, ethnicity, gender, etc. I'm neither a "young white male coder," nor an "old white male manager." I'm not a kombucha/beer-d rinking hipster. I can't win foosball to save my life. I would probably break any number of bones if I tried to ride one of those scooters. The culture we share is a drive to keep ...

  • Cost of $15 minimum wage hike could be too onerous
    Guest
    I bet the politicians "never considered" the additional tax revenue that would be generated from an increase in the minimum wage. Their "only concerns" were for the low income people trying to get ahead....Yea right, and I have a bridge to sell also. I guess the upside of the proposed increase is that the percentage of people ACTUALLY paying taxes will go up.. Join the 50% of Americans that are already paying taxes. Skeptical small business owner ...

    Delta is a high cost carrier to Atlanta, GA. Rarely is the roundtrip under $500. Portland needs competition from Alaska or Southwest.

    Born in Portland in 1958 I have detailed memories of Oregon's beauty traveling with my family. Many things have changed, billboards and logging waste 'teepee' burners that marked the trail to the coast for us kids are long gone to the delight of us all. I've lived in Hawaii but still prefer Oregon, despite its crazy politics.

  • Romanian immigrants dominate adult foster care niche

    This is the truth for sure. There is a AFH on the block I live on and it is the most horrible place I have ever seen, Yet the county does nothing about it. The people that live on this block have complained for years. But no one does a thing about the situation. The foul language and violence that comes from this home is incredible. To me this is just all a scam, money making abusing system that needs to be changed. Only if citizens really knew what ...

    Stupid article! Mostly the author reminiscing about his childhood. Really??? Oregon has a horrible reputation for being hostile to business and we have lost several companies to other states because of it yet the author is praising three forty year old bills. An example of someone with too much time of their hands.

    Foreclosure proceedings aren't always as cut and dry as one would think. If you're facing foreclosure, the Oregon Sheriff's Department provides foreclosure prevention resources at oregonsheriffss ales.org Also, if you're looking for available foreclosure properties in Oregon, you can find all that info at oregonsheriffss ales.org as well.

  • State officials to investigate Portland highway capacity
    Guest
    "Ask any commuter in the Portland-metro area: The roads have too many drivers." That's one way to look at it. The streets might be okay if folks at least occasionally use alternative commuting methods, but our highways are way too small for a metro area. The most laughable is where I-5 meets I-84. The south bound meeting of these two large freeways is 2-lanes feeding into 1-lane. It's a joke, and unfortunately no amount of planning will save ...

    I worked seven years in AFH. I see how drastically this business is in need of reform. I mean this on the side of DHS investigators, and with in the homes too. The lavish perks of ownership attract people to this business for the wrong reasons. The home I worked in was a prime example. The provider cheated on about all she could. She manipulated the investigator and his shortcomings made the position he held worthless. She cheated the IRS, medicade ...
