Christopher Maag North Jersey Record Published 6:26 AM EST Dec 27, 2018 Is this thing over yet? For people in North Jersey who follow the news, 2018 was simply exhausting. Before we could even process the President of the United States using Twitter to boast that his “nuclear button” was bigger than North Korean dictator Kim Jong-Un’s, mudslides in Southern California killed 21 people; a mass shooting in Parkland, Florida, left 17 people dead; and special counsel Robert Mueller indicted 13 Russian nationals for criminal interference in America's elections. And all that was just the first six weeks. It was a busy year for news in North Jersey, too. It’s easy to forget that this time last year Toys ’R Us was still in business, and many fans still believed Eli Manning could get the Giants to the playoffs. (I know. Too soon.) It’s also easy to forget how many big North Jersey stories this year were happy. From mandatory … [Read more...] about 2018 NJ news look back: The things you forgot happened this year

A studio head was there, some developer types, marketing people, her TV and film producing partner, … [Read more...] about Jennifer Lopez on Her Power Bossness, ‘Second Act’ and A-Rod
Make no mistake. Vampires walk among us every day.Not the blood-sucking types, such as Kiefer Sutherland in “The Lost Boys.” These are a more insidious sort. They’re energy vampires, as Dr. Judith Orloff calls them in her new book, “The Empath’s Survival Guide: Life Strategies for Sensitive People.”Perhaps some already come to mind. Maybe it’s the co-worker who operates in victim mentality and believes the world is out to get him. They come to you for compassionate listening, and you end up giving them countless hours of unpaid therapy. Or maybe it’s your drama queen friend, who always has a crisis and either turns to you for help or blows off plans with you to deal with the drama.“It’s somebody who can suck you dry,” said Orloff, a New York Times best-selling author.

Fresh out of college in 1974, I applied for a job teaching eighth-grade English at a middle school in the New York metropolitan area.

When I shared the story about my interview with some friends, one cautioned me about taking the job. I thought she was overreacting and didn’t heed her advice. I desperately wanted to teach and had … [Read more...] about My Future Boss Asked Me Out During My Job Interview, And It Made National News
