The Australian Bureau of Statistics (ABS) confirmed on Tuesday it will offer a paperless voting option for Australians wanting to have their say in the postal plebiscite on marriage equality but may also be "overseas or who cannot reasonably receive their material via post". The ABS said in a statement that the paperless option will also extend to "Australians with blindness, low vision or [another] disability that makes the paper form a more difficult option, or those in residential aged care". "If a person cannot access their survey form (for example, if overseas), or complete their survey form independently, they can authorise another person they trust to assist them with their survey, or to complete the survey form on their behalf," the ABS statement said. "The trusted person would then seal the form in the reply paid envelope and post it back to the ABS. A person cannot self-declare themselves to be a trusted person for someone else."

Together, these studies provide insight into the struggles of the work force and the negative health impacts a poor work environment can have on employees. A big factor in this statistic is the level of support that a boss provides in the work environment, Maestas said. Within work environments, there is an attitude that if an employee is happy, he or she will be more productive. It's not good for your physical health, and it's not good for your mental health. But it is one of the ways in which people can reduce their stress levels at work."

As Fed officials try to make sense of how low unemployment, which should drive up wages and prices, persists side by side with low inflation, most simply assume that inflation will rise by next year as labor demand lifts wages and higher wages lead to rising prices. This belief has led to two interest rate increases so far this year, in effect tapping the brakes on growth to fight inflation, with another rate increase expected this year. A more plausible view is that persistently low inflation shows the economy is more fragile than policy makers want to admit, and needs to be helped, not handicapped. The Fed has had to continually pull back its inflation projections. The Fed is also not responsible for advancing labor standards that help to lift wages.
Not only do group lawsuits help consumers recover money they otherwise would forfeit, but they also protect many more consumers by halting and deterring harmful behavior. It simply ensures that consumers have the option of joining together to sue companies. Companies and consumers can still use arbitration to resolve their differences, but companies cannot unilaterally block group lawsuits. It is the height of hypocrisy for companies to say they’re helping consumers by closing off the very same legal option they use when they’ve been wronged. Our rule restores consumers’ legal right to stand up for themselves and have their day in court without having to wait on the government to act.
Moderates believe that, at most, government can create a platform upon which the beautiful things in life can flourish. The moderate is prudent and temperate about political life because he is so passionate about emotional, spiritual and intellectual life. They believe creativity happens when you merge galaxies of belief that seem at first blush incompatible. Moderates are problematic members of their party. Moderates don’t operate from the safety of their ideologically pure galleons.
