Question found in Human Rights
If your employment was terminated for reasons other than misconduct, you may be eligible for unemployment compensation. Eligibility usually requires that you are available for work and actively seeking work.

If you are disabled and in the U.S., you might be eligible for Social Security Disability Income. This is not a quick process, though. From initial application and (almost automatic) denial, through appeal and (almost automatic) denial through at least one court appearance (possible denial), you could spend up to two years obtaining benefits.

Is call recording illegal?

Discuss this question

Question found in Internet Technology
It depends on the laws where you live and you neglected to include that information.

In some U.S. states, you can record a phone call if one party is aware that the call is being recorded. In other states, all parties must be made aware of and agree to permit recording.

In other countries, it could vary between total prohibition and total freedom.

hi, Ive recently noticed some red bumps in my vaginal area, I'm sexually active and do shave. The bumps are irritating and itchy and I need to know what they are. Can I give these to my boyfriend and how can I get rid of them? thanks, Ems

Discuss this question

Question found in Women's Health
Shaving bumps are not uncommon. These are often caused by coarse hair, especially if you are black, Middle Eastern, Indian or similar.

They are not contagious, but they can harbor infections that can be shared (very unlikely, but possible).

Consider a depilatory cream or similar instead of shaving if bumps are a problem.

If you want to be really involved, let your partner help. This can be just as erogenous as foreplay.

Hi Because I am flying over the USA I have been told I must leave my suitcases unlocked to enable them to be searched, I assume at Gatwick when I fly out and Barbados when I fly home.

Is this correct?

Discuss this question

Question found in Tourism & Travel
Much will depend upon the security rules in the country of your departure.

If unlocked, suitcases could be subject to theft of content. If locking is prohibited, this is the risk you take.

If locked, I would strongly suggest that the luggage tags feature the number of the cell phone in your pocket. If inspection is necessary, they can contact you rather than hold your bags or cut them open for inspection.

I fly with firearm(s) in my checked luggage and never have any problems.

Hi

I am software professional. Age 23. Indian. I’ve been in relationship since 1 year with a girl from my friends group. We share healthy relations except one thing. She is not happy about my past, though she knows everything about it, even I haven’t hide anything from her. I ll tell you something about my past. During first year of my college I used to like one girl. I was all time under limelight person of class. So every small issue was going to be big matter. So almost all nice looking girl was paired by my classmates with me. But real problem is here, before meeting my girlfriend I used to talk with one girl from same group so other girls from that group used to tease her in front of my girlfriend (during college days). My girlfriend also thinks that I used to like her, and my behavior also suggest the same. But fact is that I never liked that girl. So the problem is that my girlfriend is repeatedly quarreling with me. I don’t know to convince her. I accept in front of her that my past is certainly not acceptable. Though she is not able to forget it, even she is trying the same, but many times it hurts her. So please give me some suggestions regarding my problem?

Thank you.

Question found in Intimate Relationships
Your command of English is wanting, but I will try.

Relationships are based upon mutual trust.

If she will not trust you, your feelings don't matter.

If you can win her trust, do not betray it.

Unfortunately, many cultures (e.g.: Indian) consider all previous relationships an absolute factor as if not transient. If she will not let this go, it is time to find another potential partner.

Gravity pulls us to earth but theirs an opposing force at work centrifugal force. Since earth spins faster around the equator then it does further north or south of this line would you basically weigh less standing on the equator?

Discuss this question

Question found in Physics
No such thing as centrifugal force.

It is gravity holding you on the planet and it is stronger than the acceleration of rotation that would toss you off. Same with a bucket of water swinging around your head. Acceleration holds the water in the bucket, the rope keeps it from flying away.

Look up centripetal force and score serious points with your instructor.

Comments :
Sweet! so their must have been a time of two seperate forces acting on a single point but since a body in motion stays in motion one force cancels out leaving (gravity) (two seperate forces merging into one)

Can I do something to increase the size of my penis. Do penis enlargement pills actually work?

Discuss this question

Question found in Personal Health Issues
Short of surgery, which is risky and often has extremely disappointing results, anything else is a waste of time, money and hope. Seriously.

Unless you have a serious condition, chances are it's just fine.

If I feel a compensation claim amount is unfair after going to court can I challenge the judges decision?

Discuss this question

Question found in Legal Other
You probably need the advice of a competent attorney.

There generally has to be legal fault in the decision to appeal and not simply because you aren't happy.

Can an employer cut your hourly wage by $3/hr and tell you is starts on next paycheck? Even though you signed a form stating your hours of work and pay compensation before you took the job? Do you have to accept the decrease?

Discuss this question

Question found in Legal Other
Your employer can probably do this legally.

Most employment is "at will". That is, you can either quit or be fired, with or without notice, at any time for any reason or no reason at all.

This also means that the employer can adjust compensation at will, with or without notice, for any reason or no reason at all providing the pay meets the legal minimum. A retroactive decrease in pay without notice is hugely unfair (work two weeks only to discover your wages were cut before you worked them) and you may have a legal squawk there.

Unless you can demonstrate that the form you signed was a contract of employment rather than simply an initial offer, your only options are to negotiate, live with it or quit.

If you quit under these circumstances, you may or may not be eligible for unemployment compensation. Don't rush headlong into quitting because you THINK you're eligible, check first.

Best suggestion is to keep working and start looking for other employment. A $3 reduction in hourly wage will not be seen negatively as a reason to move on unless it was related to poor performance.
