Worth a Look

Here are a few posts from last week's Greenpage that might be worth your time:

‘Midnight Rider’ Accident: Hearing Set on Appeal of OSHA Violations

Variety: A federal commission has scheduled a hearing starting on March 31 on the “Midnight Rider” filmmakers’ appeal of almost $75,000 in fines and safety violations proposed by the Occupational Safety and Health Administration, which investigated the Feb. 20 train accident that killed camera assistant Sarah Jones and injured eight others on the film’s set last year.

California takes on the NFL: New bill would force teams to pay cheerleaders minimum wage A California assemblywoman this week introduced a measure that would force NFL teams to pay cheerleaders minimum wage, overtime and workers compensation. State Rep. Lorena Gonzalez, a Democrat from San Diego and former Stanford University cheerleader, introduced the legislation after another cheerleader with the Oakland Raiderettes brought a lawsuit alleging the team violated minimum wage laws.

Paris Calls a Halt to Outdoor Filming of Some Action Scenes Authorities have imposed new restrictions on filming movies or television shows in the city of Paris nearly a month after shootings that killed 17 people in and around the French capital. Outdoor scenes of actors in police or military uniforms and the use of fake weapons or explosives have been banned, underlining the heightened level of security after the attacks.

The Privilege of Privilege

HowlRound: If I’d realized earlier how privileged I am, I’d have enjoyed it more.

Now that privilege is being challenged, and is no longer unconscious, or taken for granted.


Don’t worry. I’m not going to slather myself in liberal guilt and whine about it. That’s a waste of time. The energy required to wallow in guilt is energy that is better spent unpacking my privilege, acknowledging the damage it has done to me and to others, and doing what I can to use it positively or help to dismantle it.

Making Talent: 4 Lessons from the Front Lines Of Digital Education

Co.Create | creativity + culture + commerce: At times, I hear secrets. Recently I met a prominent business leader, a person who manages multi-million dollar global client relationships at an established company. He admitted that he "walks into work naked every single day." In other words, his skills have not evolved to meet the digital-specific demands of his job. It’s likely that his supervisor and colleagues are unaware of the extent of his skill deficiency. His lack of digital expertise, coupled with an inability to admit what he doesn’t know, costs the company hundreds of thousands of dollars in lost opportunities annually.
