Outside Interests Often Asked by Employers
Career Crossroads---By Emily Fitzpatrick/RII
Question: Do employers really look at a candidate’s outside interests when considering new hires?
Answer: Employers are always on the lookout for candidates that engage in community service, have association memberships, etc... Having interests outside of work indicates a well-rounded individual.
Outside interests provide the employer information about the candidate’s values, motivation, and they demonstrate the candidate’s breadth of interests. Additionally, they give an employer an idea of how a candidate is likely to use her/his time and whether she/he is well balanced.
Many organizations look to hire leaders and potential leaders involved in the community, e.g. volunteerism. This type of activity can teach new and important skills to executives, rising stars and future leaders and may expose them to cultural diversity, which is indicative of today’s work environments.
It is not necessary to indicate interests in your resume; this information can be included in your Cover Letter or in your formal application with the employer. Should you decide to include this, list them after your Education/Training/Certification Section. Always include if you are continuing your education or taking specific classes to improve your career or health.
Do not indicate on resumes your religious or political views - organizations that indicate your affiliation(s)/belief(s) should not be present anywhere in your resume.
Researchers Develop Marijuana Saliva Test
People who consume alcohol in the United States are often stopped on the roadsides and asked to take breathalyzer tests. If an individual’s blood alcohol content exceeds a specified limit, they may be subjected to penalties, fines and tickets; they could even be arrested. On the other hand, marijuana does not currently have an intoxication test, which makes it harder for authorities to determine individuals who may have exceeded the limit and are driving while impaired.
Researchers have, however, reported that they are on the verge of a breakthrough, developing a saliva test to help measure marijuana levels at roadside stops. The research findings collected by these scientists were presented on the SciMeetings platform that was held online by the American Chemical Society.
The study’s lead, Shalini Prasad, stated that while people think that driving while high on cannabis is safer than driving when intoxicated on liquor, both alcohol and cannabis have similar effects on individuals. This includes a decrease in self-awareness, a decline in a person’s alertness and a slowed reaction time. However, researchers have yet to determine a definite level of THC, the psychoactive compound found in cannabis, that can cause impairment. Preliminary reports suggest that between 1 to 15 THC Nanoograms per ml of blood may be considered as an impairment level.
With the number of states that are decriminalizing cannabis growing, law enforcement authorities are struggling to find ways to ensure that the roads remain safe from drivers who may be driving while intoxicated. While THC blood tests do exist, they are invasive and laborious. In addition, most police officers do not have the skills required to administer these tests at roadside stops. Some scientists are working on tools to help measure levels of THC that are similar to alcohol breathalyzers. However, Prasad explains that THC levels in a person’s breath are low and these devices may need extensive data processing to allow other compounds to be filtered out.
With the discovery that the THC found in saliva corresponds to the THC found in the blood, Prasad and colleagues have found a way around this. The University of Texas researchers have developed an electronic reader and sensor strips that pick up on any THC present in a sample. They have conducted a test using a drop of human saliva, which had been contaminated with THC. Their findings demonstrate that the device could test THC levels that range from 100pg/ml to 100 ng/ml accurately. Additionally, it took the device less than five minutes to produce results.

As the holiday season approached, many are faced with the difficult question of whether or not they should spend Christmas with their parents, grandparents or other vulnerable relatives. And while experts clearly advise against large family gatherings this year, the thought of spending the holiday without their loved ones will certainly be too much to bear for many people, even those that have been careful for months.
When making the decision on how to spend the holidays, it’s important to remember just how much more dangerous COVID-19 is to the elderly compared to young, healthy people. Of the roughly 250,000 people who had died from COVID-19 in the United States as of December 2, 230,000 were older than 55, with almost 150,000 deaths occurring in the 75+ age group alone. Meanwhile, less than 2,500 people younger than 35 lost their lives to the virus, with just over 500 victims younger than 25.

Adoption Application: If you are interested in adopting one of our dogs, you may submit an application online or via fax. If you choose to send a fax, please download the Adoption Application here in PDF format; fill it out and sign it. You can fax it to us at 714-773-9430. Home Visit Prior to any dog going home, we do require a home visit to ensure that your environment is safe and secure. Once your home has been approved, the adoption can move forward. Adoption Donation: Our adoption donation is a minimum $350.00 plus $25.00 for microchip for adult dogs and $450 plus $25.00 microchip for puppies 1 year and under. This donation is tax deductible as allowed by law and helps to offset the costs that we have incurred for the dog's care and housing during his or her stay with our group. The minimum adoption donation does not entirely cover the investments that we have made in the dogs so if you are in a position to give more, we would be honored to receive your additional donation. All adoption donations go directly toward the needs of our dogs.
All dogs adopted through GSROC are spayed or neutered, current on their vaccines and de-wormed. Because the minimum Adoption Donation rarely covers the costs associated with each dog, we ask that adopters who are in a position to give additional funds do so at their discretion.
