In 2013, American companies advertise approximately 1,000 anti-corruption related positions across the country;but, the number of openings advertised rose to over 1,400 positions in Spring 2015.

This is a rapidly expanding sector in the area of Criminology and should continue to produce new jobs in the next several years. Competitions between nations is rising as USA, Russia, China and other go after property tights on Mars, the Moon, and the Asteroid Belt.

In Medicine, anti-corruption work is important to control fraud in personal injury, Workers Compensation, SSI/SSDI, Medicare, Medicaid, drugs, transplant and 3D-Printer organs marketing, and many others.

  • Audit Manager
  • Cyber Crime and Breach Response
  • Risk & Compliance Specialist
  • Anti-Money Laundering Analyst

The Work of the Anti-Corruption Manager


Texas is steadily maintaining a sizable pool of job advertisements, with help from the Aerospace and Healthcare Industries, along with Oil & Gas. That’s despite the blocking of the last leg of the Keystone XL Pipeline. Trucks are carrying the oil and tar sands down from Canada and that has led to an increase in trucking jobs to just about 1,000,000 truck drivers needed in America. That is good news! These are permanent jobs, whereas the Pipeline jobs created would have lasted only a matter of several months, except for a handful of supervisors and engineers.

Texas is good news for business and workers also, because there is no state income tax, but plenty of business incentives offered. On top of that is the network available for people ages 55 and older to use free-of-charge for finding jobs, housing, and other opportunities.

It may be hot in parts of Texas, but the job opportunities are hotter.

Increasing numbers of assaults in American emergency rooms against healthcare professionals and medical support staff have been recorded as initiated by various patients, their relatives, and significant others. Some of these attacks are assaults with deadly weapons. This may be one reason that we have a shortage of healthcare professionals working today.

During January 2015, such an assault – a shooting – happened in Boston’s Brigham and Women’s Hospital. It caused the death of a heart surgeon, Michael J. Davidson, MD. His patient, an older woman, died and her son came into the hospital a few months later with a loaded gun to seek vengeance. He is in the legal system at this time, but that does not bring back the deceased doctor, whose patients have been added to the already heavy workload of other professionals..

This is not an isolated incident. At St. John’s Hospital in Mapplewood, Minnesota a male patient pulled a metal bar out of the railing on the side of his bed, chased a nurse down a hallway, and beat her when she fell. In Central Ohio we are hearing about patients and visitors becoming angry and violent about wait times, questions about treatment, and other irritants. Families sometimes fight among themselves and the healthcare staff is injured when they attempt to intervene to keep the hospital an orderly place.

America seems always short of nurses and doctors. Before Obamacare took effect in 2013 – 2014, estimates were that the numbers of nurses, doctors, and support staff needed after Obamacare would decrease, but the opposite has been true.

To fill medical and other health care treatment and support positions across the United States, steps must be taken to ensure safety on the job.  Everyone deserves a safe workplace.

I look at employment trends and job openings every day and have done so for 12 years, as I have worked to help job seekers find stable and satisfying employment.

I have noticed an increase in driving jobs – especially in Truck Driving, CDL-licensed and otherwise, – since 2012.

Many of these advertised job listings are for CDL-licensed truck drivers and owner-operators of large trucks like semis, refrigerator trucks, logging trucks, and even tanker trucks. This increase in jobs indicates an increase in goods production and transport needs in the United States.

What goods? – Auto parts, computer parts, robots and robotic parts, aerospace related parts, spacecraft, oil, tar sands, vegetable foods, livestock, scrap metal, trash, medical devices – the list goes on.

Many of these jobs start at $50,000 and many have sign-on bonuses. Training is sometimes free to the student, while some students are paid to become truck drivers. See more information at:

US federal agencies and private companies analyze data about the workplace in America and publish their findings to help workers.Their findings are useful and sometimes shocking.

Several occupational titles are High Risk in terms of exposure to diseases.

According to the US Labor Department, an occupational disease is a chronic ailment that is the result of working at some job-related activity. As such, it is part of occupational safety and health and further, the Occupational Safety and Health Act (OSHA) that guarantees American workers a safe, clean, and disease-free place of employment.

Negative Effects of Obesity

Obesity probably never results in good effects. Obese children and youth are at risk for Type II Diabetes, heart attack, and stroke; joint and bone problems; and eating disorders.

Obesity can lead to sleeping disorders such as sleep apnea. These kids often are less capable of concentrating on schoolwork –  sluggish and sometimes lethargic.

These youth can be depressed and suffer low self esteem and seem frequently targets of bullies and cyberbullies. On top of all this, some parents purposely overfeed their children as a form of abuse with all of its effects. Other effects may emerge as obesity persists among American children and youth.

Book to Become a Film – HATRED IS THE KEY

Graham Sclater’s scintillating new book Hatred Is the Key tells the aftermath of little-publicized War where 10,000+ Americans were held in a cold stone prison in England for years, even for 4 months AFTER the war was declared finished. They were tortured.

US Navy men, boys, merchants, slaves and ex-slaves were all tortured, some 13-year-old boys dying immediately in the winter cold without food and overrun by bugs and disease.

The Englishmen in charge suffered their own consequences in the War of 1812 and no one won any land in America or Canada. American Indians on Britain’s side lost the land promised to them and slaves killed in prison were finally free.

This book could be the basis of award-winning essays and reports in Americans schools and may become the basis for a fine film in the future.

Modern Thanksgiving  in the Western Hemisphere occurs in Canada (October) and USA (November).  Before this,  it was celebrated by Spanish settlers and Native Americans by ancient traditions. Other cultures – like the Chinese –  also  give thanks for the harvest and for life. An official holiday puts a marketing logo on it and helps build holiday business.

The following article provides  several pages of recipes, the history of Thanksgiving not taught in schools, and tons of vacation, fun, and educational activites in the US and Canada:
