Do they have a separate drinking fountain too?

Multnomah County is hiring!
Job Title: COMPUTER TRAINING LAB LIBRARIAN
$44,056.80 - $54,204.48 annually

Description:
This position will manage the day-to-day operations of the computer lab, ensuring delivery of culturally-appropriate services to African Americans and other culturally diverse users. Since the North Portland Branch Library serves the community with the highest concentration of African Americans in Multnomah County, it is important that candidates be knowledgeable about and have extensive experience working with the African-American community, demonstrated by knowledge of the traditions, values, and customs of the community being served.

We are especially seeking candidates from various language, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds to enhance service to our diverse community.

Experience:
Candidates must be knowledgeable about and have extensive experience working with the African-American community, demonstrated by knowledge of the traditions, values, and customs of the community being served.

Benefits:
Multnomah County provides an extremely generous and comprehensive benefits program to employees. Family members, including qualified domestic partners, are covered under most Multnomah County benefits programs.

The County pays most of the cost of health care premiums, with employees paying a small share.

12 vacation days
Ten paid holidays
Twelve days of sick leave
Three days of fully paid bereavement leave

The County pays both the employer and the employee's share of the retirement contribution (six percent of wages). Employees are vested in PERS after five (5) years of contributions or when they reach age 50.

And much much more! Thank goodness you folks are paying that I-tax so that we can hire a librarian to serve just black people. I'm confused though, how are they different? Aren't these Americans we are talking about? Don't they like football and hotdogs? I like football and hotdogs. Is that part of my "customs" and "culture"?

Does the library have separate drinking fountains that appeal to each races' "traditions" and "customs" or can we all just share one? Maybe this is a sign of "ethnocentric monoculturalism" but I don't understand, don't black people use the same computer programs as everyone else? Is there a black version of Windows? Will this librarian guide them to a "culturally appropriate" black internet?

That is so stupid.

"Candidates must be knowledgeable about and have extensive experience working with the African-American community, demonstrated by knowledge of the traditions, values, and customs of the community being served."

Ummm, so are they going to make you recite lyrics from the latest 50-cent record? Describe what 'dubs' are? Seems to me this is the kind of bs that continues to divide the country. Great work PDX!

I've heard a rumor that the job interview will be conducted in "ebonics."

Anonymous said...

..or 'spanglish'...

畔上賢闘 said...

It should be conducted in Black English.. You're right.

Daniel said...

Seriously though, the black people that I know are more concerned with their jobs, kids, and mortgages than with ho's and selling crack.
For multnomah county to think that BET represents black "culture" is degrading to black people. (and taxpayers of all colors)

I skim a lot of blogs, and so far yours is in the Top 3 of my list of favorites. I'm going to dive in and try my hand at it, so wish me luck.

It'll be in a totally different area than yours (mine is about mens male enhancement reviews) I know, it sounds strange, but it's like anything, once you learn more about it, it's pretty cool. It's mostly about mens male enhancement reviews related articles and subjects.

It’s 11:00 in the morning and your energy is waning. Minutes seem to tick by like hours and your mind feels foggy. You’ve still got six more hours to look alert and act productive and get over generalized anxiety, so how do you cope with the afternoon blahs? Follow these six tips!

1. If you have a job that involves sitting at a desk all day or staring at a computer screen, take five minutes to stand up or lean back, close your eyes and stretch, especially in your shoulder and leg areas. Being seated all the time can make your whole body feel stiff and sleepy. A good stretch session helps limber up your body and gets the blood flowing again.

2. Avoid the tempting lure of caffeine or sugar-laden foods such as coffee, tea or chocolate. Caffeine may perk up your energy levels temporarily, but it also has a bad habit of leaving you sluggish after the effect has worn off. Instead, choose whole grain foods, fruits and vegetables to give your body the fuel it really wants! Eating healthier will boost your mood, elevate your alertness, change generalized anxiety and make you feel better all day long.

3. Along with healthier foods, take a quick 10-15 minute walk during your lunch break. Just a few minutes will give you a burst of energy that refreshes you and makes you feel more alert – while burning off your lunch calories in the process!

4. Sometimes, afternoon slumps can be your body’s way of telling you that it needs something. You may be feeling tired if your blood sugar is low (which happens especially after the effect of those caffeine and high sugar foods has worn off!). Packing a low calorie snack like graham crackers, granola, fruit or vegetable slices can give your body a boost and keep you from feeling hungry in the late afternoon and caving in to the urge to devour the entire contents of the vending machine after work!

5. Drowsiness is often a sign that you’re not getting enough water. Drinking more water throughout the day not only helps keep you awake, but also keeps you from feeling those hunger pangs that inevitably creep up in mid-morning. Taking a large sports bottle that you can drink from throughout the day is a great way to get your recommended eight glasses a day as well!

6. If afternoon fatigue is a recurring problem, it may be a side effect of medications you are taking. Allergy pills are well known culprits, as are some blood pressure and anxiety/depression medicines. Don’t try to circumvent these effects with caffeine, otherwise you’ll overload your body with stimulants while it’s already trying to deal with drowsiness, and you’ll feel mentally and physically exhausted. Instead, try a short 15-20 minute catnap. You’ll be surprised how refresh you’ll feel when you wake up! (Don’t try this at work though – I know it’s tempting!)

If you follow these tips on a regular basis, you’ll not only make it through the afternoon blahs, but you’ll also feel better physically and mentally, sleep better at night, and wake up rejuvenated and re-energized the next morning. Make it a GREAT day! generalized anxiety
