On the Perils of the English Language

Every so often, we post something about how ridiculous the English language really is. The following excerpt from the poem The Chaos by G Nolst Tenite shows why learning to read and write in English is so difficult, both for English language learners and Adult basic education students.

Inclusive Workplace Survey

The Tulsa Regional Chamber's diversity business council, Mosaic, has launched its 2014 Top 20 Inclusive Workplace Culture survey to identify Tulsa-area organizations working toward creating an inclusive workplace culture.

The survey will measure the inclusiveness of HR and management practices in the region's business community as a whole, and individual responses will not be shared. All employers, including nonprofit organizations, are invited to participate.
