E-Verify…ha,ha,ha, etc.

Second state agency failed to use E-Verify

The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Georgia auditors have identified a second state agency that failed to use a federal system to ensure its new employees are eligible to work in the United States.

The now defunct State Personnel Administration — which set employment policies and procedures for state government agencies – did not use the E-Verify work authorization system to check the employment eligibility for three of its employees, according to a November report by the Georgia Department of Audits and Accounts.

The administration was absorbed into the Georgia Department of Administrative Services last year. Joe Kim, general counsel for the Administrative Services Department, said the issue is moot because his agency uses E-Verify.

A state law aimed at blocking state and local government agencies from hiring illegal immigrants took effect in July 2007. It requires government agencies to use E-Verify, a free online employment eligibility program.

The Georgia Agriculture Department confirmed last month that it started using E-Verify after state auditors reported the agency had previously failed to do so.

Don’t it make you proud to be AMURICAN?

Dog treats recalled over antibiotic


SECAUCUS, N.J., Jan. 31 (UPI) — Dog treat maker Hartz Mountain said it pulled two products that were made with Chinese chicken from shelves because they contained an illegal antibiotic.

The products — Hartz Chicken Chews and Hartz Oinkies Pig Skin Twists wrapped with Chicken — were voluntarily recalled because they contained trace amounts of an antibiotic that is not approved for use in the United States, ABC News reported Thursday.

Hartz Mountain’s decision to recall its products came after Del Monte and Nestle Purina voluntarily pulled chicken jerky pet treats made in China from shelves earlier this month because they were possibly contaminated by an antibiotic illegal in the United States.

(DON’T IT MAKE YOU PROUD, AMURICA….NOW EVIDENTLY, WE DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH DEAD PIGS AND CHICKENS HERE. WE IMPORT THEM. YUM, YUM… GIVE ME SOME… CHINESE HAPPY FAMILY!!!)

TODAYS ACCIDENTAL INVENTION

Most inventors strive for weeks, months, or years to perfect their products. (Thomas Edison tried thousands of different light bulb filaments before arriving at the ideal mixture of tungsten.) But sometimes, brilliance strikes by accident. Here’s a salute to the scientists, chefs, and everyday folk who stumbled upon greatness – and, more important, shared their mistakes with the world.

The first potato chips were meant as an insult.

Hotel chef George Crum enjoyed a wonderful knack for cooking. From his kitchen at Moon’s Lake House near Saratoga Springs, N.Y., Mr. Crum could “take anything edible and transform it into a dish fit for a king.” That skill came in handy – the upscale Lake House attracted customers who were used to being treated like kings.

In 1853, a cranky guest complained about Crum’s fried potatoes. They were too thick, he said. Too soggy and bland. The patron demanded a new batch.

Crum did not take this well. He decided to play a trick on the diner. The chef sliced a potato paper-thin, fried it until a fork could shatter the thing, and then purposefully over-salted his new creation. The persnickety guest will hate this, he thought. But the plan backfired. The guy loved it! He ordered a second serving.

Word of this new snack spread quickly. “Saratoga Chips” became a hit across New England, and Crum went on to open his own restaurant. Today, that accidental invention has ballooned into a massive snack industry.
