Red Sox Beat KC On The Road...Youk On 15 Disabled List
2011-08-19 10:53:00
The Boston Red Sox defeated the KC Royals by a score of 4-3 but there was bad news to accompany the good. Kevin Youkilis was placed on the 15 day disabled list because of back woes. He's had the pain on and off all year and Boston wants to rest Youk and his back for an extended period of time. He joins Big Papi David Ortiz on the bench, which makes it tough when it comes to scoring runs.. Thursday night in KC, in the first of four games with KC, it was the three RBIs from cleanup hitter Pedey Pedroia and the seven three runs innings from Josh Beckett that broke their losing streak...finally. Bard and Papelbon were perfect in the eighth and ninth innings and Josh finally earned his tenth victory. He deserved it, too but he clearly wasn't in favor with the Seattle to Boston trip with no day off involved. Here is Mr. Beckett on exactly that... I don't know how they expect them to still score eight runs after coming back from Seattle, having half an off day and then go get 'e...

Budget Impact on Disabled Women
2010-07-08 20:11:00
Jess posted that women will bear the brunt of three-quarters of extra taxes and benefit cuts from the latest budget. Disabled people are also at risk, especially with the proposed changes to benefits, so disabled women will be particularly adversely affected.In a 2004 study by the Joseph Rowntree Foundation, on the extra costs of living associated with being disabled, it was found that disabled people living on benefits face a weekly shortfall of £200 compared to the amount required for them to ensure an acceptable, equitable quality of life and minimum standard of living. And those results were for people on maximum benefit levels.With many people who are too sick to work being 'pushed into seeking work without any help or support', and the continuing rolling out of ESA, a system condemned as 'unfit' by one of the very people who designed it, along with proposed 'savings' (by which we mean cuts) to Disability Living Allowance (DLA), many disabled people living on benefits w...

Fraud, Abuse and the Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business Program
2009-12-04 20:38:00
By: Edward T. DeLisle In recent testimony provided to the House of Representative’s Committee on Small Business, a disturbing fact was revealed: millions of dollars earmarked for Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Businesses (“SDVOSBs”) have been paid to companies that do not qualify for the program. Compounding the problem is the fact that insufficient fraud-prevention programs exist to effectively combat such abuses. This was the conclusion reached by United States Government Accountability Office (the “GAO”) following a case study that included an investigation of ten (10) companies claiming SDVOSB eligibility. In 2008 alone, $6.5 billion in federal contracts were awarded to companies that self-certified themselves as SDVOSBs. While this figure only represents 1.5% of all government contracts paid in that fiscal year, it is still a very large number. If the federal government ever attains its mandated goal of 3%, many more billions will become available ...
Disabled Feminism
2009-12-04 19:12:00
My third guest post over at the F Word.I was very anxious before writing my first post here, but when the comments starting rolling in, I was overwhelmed by the positive messages in response to it.Firstly, it really helped me. The encouragement that I am doing ok, I am doing good things, and I am making a difference, even if I can't necessarily do the 'outside' things.And secondly, that it touched so many people. Not especially that my words helped, but that talking about disability and feminism seems such a rarity, and that many people were reading about it for the first time. I'm so glad I could do that, and I'm so glad that it provoked thought for some and reassurance for others, but we need much more!I mentioned on my main blog that I had posted here, and one of the commenters there said, Isn't it a shame that writing about disability and feminism and inclusivity is something that is still a remarkable thing?And she's right! Feminism and activism really needs to catch up,...
Testing times for disabled people
2009-10-15 10:55:00
From the GuardianTesting times for disabled peopleThe new eligibility test for people on sickness benefit will only intensify the massive disadvantage faced by disabled peopleThere are some good principles behind the new Employment and Support Allowance (ESA), but what does the accompanying eligibility test actually mean for disabled people? The first full set of figures to show its impact suggest that more disabled people could end up in poverty.A year ago the ESA was introduced to replace Incapacity Benefit (IB). At the same time the "work capability assessment", was introduced. Now the figures showing the impact of this new assessment have been published.Essentially, they show that the new assessment is considerably tougher than the old one, so fewer people are being found eligible for the benefit. As eventually all existing recipients of IB will also be retested under the new assessment, the figures also show us that many people currently in receipt of IB will be found ineligibl...
Indian Government Sites Not Yet Fully Disabled-friendly – Now Who Wil
2009-09-11 09:43:00
The Indian Government passed the Disability Act in 1995, which among other things mandates that public information should also be provided in a disabled-friendly format to those Indian citizens who might have a need for it. With increasing proliferation of the Internet, electronic accessibility of information has become extremely crucial. In February this year, the government finally ensured that 50 of its websites shall be made disabled-friendly in order to make accessibility easy. The guidelines to ensure that a website is disabled-friendly is not a long list. Just a few important factors need to be ensured, like: Including the ‘ALT’ attribute for all images so that visitors who have problem viewing the image can easily listen to the ALT text using speech synthesizers Ability to know where the link is pointed at, without having to read the surrounding text Use of a consistent style to identify hyperlinks which is not solely based on color Use of frames to be avoided ...

Disabled Travels
2008-09-20 09:27:00
This is a guest post by Jean Rasbridge, a disabled traveller who works for a UK Power Chair company.I recently had a very pleasant stay with family who are working in elegant Qatar - I had been apprehensive about the journey itself, as well as travelling to a totally new country where I could not even say "Good Morning" ( I am ashamed to say). However I need not have worried, my fears about a non-disabled friendly trip and reception were unfounded.I travelled from Terminal 3 at Heathrow, and was escorted from the check in desk by very friendly airline staff, to a quiet waiting area, and when the flight was called was accompanied again to boarding. My travel Power Chair was put into the hold after I was ensconced in a front seat, and the journey passed smoothly. On arrival my son had arranged for an amazing service! A lift brought the chair to the door of the plane, and I was then met by a member of a Visa handling service called Al Maha, and taken to a charming area where I...

Hey, Barry, what about ‘disabled’ do you not understand?
2008-09-15 12:47:00
“1982. John McCain goes to Washington. Things have changed in the last 26 years, but McCain hasn’t,” says a voice-over in the ad against shots of a Rubik’s Cube, a disco ball, a massive cell phone and an old computer. “He admits he still doesn’t know how to use a computer, can’t send an e-mail, still doesn’t understand the economy, and favors $200 billion in new tax cuts for corporations, but almost nothing for the middle class. After one president who’s out of the touch, we just can’t afford more of the same.” Responding to the ad, McCain’s online outreach manager Patrick Hynes shot back: “The ad is a joke. After they hyped it so heavily in The New York Times I can only assume nervous Democrats are embarrassed for the Obama campaign.” That from the left-leaning “Wired” this morning. Leaving aside the idea that Presidents don’t use such things because of security concerns,  there&r...
