Re: “UPMC opens food bank for struggling employees, misses point completely (UPDATED)

UPMC doesn't even give employees raises that are above the Cost of Living increase. I've worked there for 9 years, get great performance reviews, yet I got less than the Cost of Living increase (which is 1.7%). It doesn't make sense - why should I stay? I am actively seeking new employment.

Re: “UPMC opens food bank for struggling employees, misses point completely (UPDATED)

UPMC raises are a joke. This year my raise was LESS than the Cost of Living increase (which was 1.7%; I got less than that), despite getting "Solid, Strong performer" on my review. This is how they "reward" their dedicated employees. We need more people to speak up or change will never happen.

Re: “Wiz Khalifa dominates Boys of Zummer

at least you weren't one of many fans who bought tickets from stub hub only to find out at the show those tickets did not exist..Luckily my daughter and friends had cash to buy new tickets and they were actually better seats for $4 more...I'm surprised I didn't hear more about this as it happened to quite a few concert goers that day...still not sure if the friend who bought the tickets ever got a refund either...

Re: “After Dormont officials object, Hollywood Theater cancels Dan Savage-curated "Hump" festival

Dormont needs help. It needs new exciting businesses, events & it needs to welcome change. I don't think a 3 day screening would have a bad effect on the community at all.

I bet Lawrenceville will pick it up. Maybe we should look more into what they've done since property values have skyrocketed there!!!!!!!!! They welcome change, & that's why they are reaping huge benefits that Dormont could as well.

The world is changing, I hope Dormont does soon too.

Re: “Lucy Spruill, transit/disability rights advocate, dies at 70

I was shocked when I heard about this tragedy. I took a class with Lucy last year and she was one of the best teachers I have met in my life. She was so kind and beneficial in many ways and really wanted to help her students. She will be missed.

Re: “Iggy Azalea cancels Pittsburgh Pride appearance

LGBTQIA people are people too. I saw some of the reactions to Iggy Azalea's apology - those were probably from LGBT people and they were simply inhumane. They are no different from others in this regard, we should always be aware of that. It's good to support their rights of course (I certainly do so, as Iggy does as well), but they are just people with all their good and bad sides.

Iggy's apology was sincere though, and it shows her ability to grow up and change. Isn't this the best thing to observe in a human being? Our Western societies are so cold and unforgiving though, many of us would rather dehumanize someone else in anger and for retaliation than to forgive some simple mistake which was never even meant to harm anyone. I have once experienced un-forgiveness from one of my best friends - it almost destroyed me. I took some 5 years before I even felt like I could breathe again. Unforgiveness is such a merciless bitch.
