2021-04I like to volunteer for good causes, and I though that volunteering for a Covet-19 and I thought that volunteer at one of the Vaccination Centers was one of them . . . until I read the fine print. Among the normal document you have to sign, the last one was title “Consent and Assignment to use Likeness and Information”. The first part is just fine, of course if pictures are taken during your duty, you allow them to use it for promotion etc etc, but the second part is about “Information” and the text says: “Such Information may include my name, age, gender, address, work history, work location, job description, job title and other identifying information, including health conditions, and my comments, statements or other communications endorsing or describing any of my personal experiences or Cigna's products, services, programs and other initiatives based on such personal experience”. So, in order to volunteer for a good cause, I have to agree to release my personal info about my personal life and health condition? I attached the all document, please read the full document before volunteering, you may volunteering too much.
2020-09What do you do when you cannot do what you normally do? In Arizona the guidelines of the Governor have been pretty light except for a couple of weeks on April 2020, otherwise he was very proud to say that Arizona would follow the CDC guidelines “the Arizona way”. Meaning? We recommend the mask but is up the business to decide the extent of the enforcement; six feet distance, the same; stay home if you feel you have symptoms, of course. I have to say that the business, for the most part, have taken a more responsible posture than the authorities. Even today April 2021, when the Governor remove any obligation to wear mask, I continue to see most of the business, and population at large, that continue to wear the mask in public. So, with these light restrictions what do you do when you cannot do what you normally do? The answer for many Arizonians, and visitors, has been outdoor activities! Hiking, biking or simply going to the park. My story is of last September 2021. I too decided to resume my mountain biking activity in the McDowell Sonoran Preserve and I sent my bike to a shop for routine maintenance and replace of my old tires. What I find out is that the shop could not find any tire of my kind through their suppliers in fact, they told me, it is getting difficult even to buy a new bike, the bike market just exploded . . . I was not alone. They suggest for me to go to Amazon and look for tires and I was lucky to find my tires from a pool of only 7 in all US!!! Silver line: thank to Covint-19 the US population is finally exercising, I’ll take it
