CANBERRA, Australia -- Qantas Airways could begin returning its grounded fleet to the skies as early a Monday after an Australian court intervened in a bitter labor dispute by ending strikes and canceling a staff lock out. The arbitration court ruling Monday is a major victory in the airline's batt...

One is left wondering what a workforce is expected to do in the face of management who appear bent on moving substantial amounts of the operation offshore. The most lucrative work for many of the bargaining units involved is flying and maintaining the large aircraft--if these wind up based in Asia,...

You listed mostly policies, not cultural values Those policies reflect social values. That is, intense, structural, foundational racism, sexism, ableism, homophobia, etc. If you were white, middle-class, heterosexual, and not disabled, and male, then the 50s were a great time to be alive. That soun...

Anyone intending to fly with Qantas (the Australian national air carrier) to Australia or anywhere in the world, please note there is a global shutdown over work conditions. Strongly suggest travelers look at alternative airlines if you are thinking of travel to Australia. The Proles are Revolting....

Not sure if this should be in the dating section of WP. My own experience is that I wasted valuable time in clubs and bars in my 20s. You neither meet people who friends or life partners in such places. I made the critical mistake a hormonally charged male makes that a girl in a bar could be the fut...

I diagnosed myself online and I have some very autistic traits and a child formally DX.

However, despite being a social loner, I seem to cope in the NT world OK. So I would probably question my self DX but have little doubt that some of my traits are genetic given my child is autistic.

No, narcissism is a personality disorder that is classified in Axis 2 of DSMIV.

Of course the OP needs to get her daughter diagnosed first rather than speculating.

Why didn't they make him carry a tracking bracelet or even a simple mobile phone attached to his belt.

I know people here in Melbourne who do this for their LFA kids. It likely could save their lives.

To answer the OP: "Huh?" I don't get how you can decide whether to like someone on the basis of such a broad trait as being autistic or not. I haven't noticed any particular preference either way. Many people I consider friends are on the spectrum, many are not. Most of those who are, I knew since ...

Interesting that the study showed positive effects for hyperactivity and stimming. But the numbers used were so small (13) that this would have no statistical relevance, and be indicative only. Wonder if this has been replicated with a much larger and more valid study? On thinking about it, OP's qu...
