Atlanta Police Attempt to Quell Conspiracies About Missing CDC Employee

Screenshot/Fox 5

During a Tuesday press conference, the police major of the Atlanta Police department provided an update regarding the disappearance of an employee for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

Maj. Michael O’Connor said 35-year-old Timothy Cunningham, who went missing without a trace two weeks ago, did not recently receive a promotion despite previous reports according to the Atlanta Journal Constitution. The Morehouse and Harvard graduate was an epidemiologist with the chronic disease department of the CDC. Previous reports stated he was a commander of the U.S. Health Services department.

O’Connor also confirmed Cunningham would not have been in the presence of infectious diseases at his place of employment. The officer stated the aforementioned in an effort to silence any conspiracies as to whether his disappearance was motivated by potential knowledge of any impending public health scares. The officer said he worked within the chronic disease department.

Cunningham was last seen by co-workers at the CDC’s Chamblee, GA office on Feb. 12. Shortly after being formally informed he would not receive the promotion, he reportedly told his managers he felt ill and left early. He has not been seen or heard from since. Cunningham left behind his phone, wallet and car. His family does not believe he left on his own accord.

“This is an extremely unusual set of circumstances,” O’Connor said. “It is not common for us to find someone’s entire belongings.”

Employee Rescues Driver From Burning Car

On his drive to work one recent morning, Chris Amos, an orthopedic technician at Kaiser Permanente in Santa Cruz County, witnessed a head-on collision between a motorcycle and a car on Highway 17.

As the car began burning, Amos, pulled over and rushed to get the driver out. He is credited with saving her life, as other drivers attended to the motorcyclist.

As an orthopaedic technician at Kaiser Permanente, Chris Amos prepares splints and casts for injured members, skills that he didn’t use at the Highway 17 accident.

“The instinct to help just kind of kicked in,” he said.

No response from driver

“I was right behind the woman’s car heading south on 17, just south of the Summit,” Amos said. “It’s a dangerous area where there’s no center divider. The motorcyclist was actually heading northbound, but he veered across the center line and hit the woman’s car head-on.”

The motorcycle virtually exploded on impact, tossing the driver over the roof of the woman’s car. The man was able to get up and sit on the side of the highway.

“I pulled over and saw the woman’s car had started burning, but she wasn’t getting out,” said Amos, “so I got out of my car and ran to her. I pulled open the back door on the passenger side and tried to talk to the woman, who was motionless behind the wheel. The car’s airbags covered her. I asked her if she was okay and she didn’t respond.”

Seeing the flames in the front of her car growing, Amos reached across the seat and jostled her shoulder. She seemed to snap awake.

“I kept on saying she had to get out of the car, but she wasn’t moving, so I got out and walked around to the front,” said Amos. “As the flames grew, I was able to pull open the front door, move the airbags out of the way, and finally lead the woman gently from the car. She seemed like she was in shock.”

Amos led her to the side of the road, where she sat down and started crying. Another motorist stopped by and tried to comfort the woman while Amos checked on the motorcyclist.

“He was breathing and said he was in pain,” said Amos. At that point, yet another motorist stopped by to check on the motorcyclist. “It was a woman who said she was a nurse, so I figured the motorcyclist was in good hands.”

Right place, right time

Amos stayed around the scene and gave statements to the highway patrol and the fire department, but as firefighters cared for the woman, he had to leave for work.

By the time he arrived, his colleagues, doctors, and nurses, were already talking about his actions at the accident.

Amos thanked everyone for the congratulations and pats on the back, but he shrugged and said, “I was the right person at the right place at the right time.”

“When he arrived here after literally saving that woman’s life, Chris picked up and went right back to caring for our members,” said Brenda George, RN, managing director of the Kaiser Permanente Santa Cruz clinics.

What impressed his colleagues even more was his focus on rescuing the driver from the burning car — without thinking about his own safety.

“We all hope that we can do the right thing in an emergency, but to be honest, we just don’t know until we’re tested,” said Joyce Orndorff, MD, assistant physician in chief of Kaiser Permanente in Santa Cruz County.

“He did the right thing, in an emergency situation, selflessly, without regard for his own safety,” Dr. Orndorff said. “We’re all proud to work with Chris.”

3 Employee Wellness Programs That Boost Productivity And Lower Costs

EMPLOYEE WELLNESS PROGRAMS

In the last few years, employee wellness programs have become increasingly popular. Companies are finding that spending extra money to help their employees achieve their goals and live better lives is actually an investment.

It seems counter-intuitive, but spending money can actually save you money in the long run. Additionally, if you spend on the right things, you can boost productivity. You end up with happier, more invested employees, and that can go a long way toward helping you in the long run.

Over time, the increases in productivity and the savings in some areas of your company can result in a return on investment that more than matches your initial outlay for employee wellness programs.

 

1. Physical Health Employee Programs

 

Several years ago, I remember my father coming home with a step counter from his work. This was well before the days of wearables. However, his company was instituting a physical health program and everyone got a step counter.

Employee wellness programs focusing on physical health have come a long way from issuing step counters. Many companies are issuing wearables. In fact, the company I work for, Student Loan Hero, sends each employee a FitBit to help them set goals and monitor progress.

Some companies that use these tools offer prizes to winners. So far, we have had two different step challenges since receiving our FitBits. But you don’t have to limit your company to step challenges. There are companies that encourage more sleep at night or encourage greater water intake to replace drinking soda.

Prizes offered to winners can range from merchandise to gift cards to cash.

Also, consider a wellness stipend that can be used for gym memberships, therapeutic massage, and other items that can enhance your employees’ health.

 

Saving money on health care costs

 

While there are costs associated with handing out fitness wearables and giving prizes to employees for completing challenges, it can actually be a net gain for companies.

According to Entrepreneur, companies that integrate wearables into their employee wellness programs have lower health care costs.

It makes sense when you think about it. After all, if your employees are encouraged to exercise, eat right, and sleep well, they will be healthier and happier. That means fewer claims against your company insurance plan.

Not only that, but sending biometric data to insurance companies that offer discounts can reduce health care costs as well. There are privacy issues involved, so you need to be careful. However, if you can partner with a benefits provider you might be able to see some savings from implementing your program.

With these physical wellness programs helping employees feel better and sleep better, they are also more likely to be productive. This improves your bottom line and helps employees feel valued, reducing turnover and its related costs.

 

2. Mental Health Wellness Programs

 

Physical wellness programs can go a long way toward helping your employees. However, you don’t want to neglect mental health.

Depression, anxiety, stress, and other issues can sap your employees and reduce productivity. On top of that, morale can suffer when employees don’t have access to mental health wellness programs.

You can reduce illness leave, disability costs, and absenteeism, as well as attract strong talent, when you have a robust mental health wellness program, according to Employee Benefit News. This saves you money in the long run by reducing turnover and helping your employees become more productive.

Provide access to counseling and other tools that can help struggling employees. This includes relationship counseling as well as other types of mental and emotional health counseling. While we often make a distinction between work life and personal life, the reality is that what happens at home can affect your employees’ performances at work. Getting that help for them can be a net gain for you in the long run.

You might be surprised to learn how many employees could benefit from help with this type of program. Make it a point to offer services they can access easily, confidentially, and free of charge to them. You’ll end up with a more fulfilled workforce.

 

3. Financial Wellness Programs

 

Most Americans are stressed about money. Being concerned about finances can weigh on your employees and make them less effective.

In fact, according to a 2015 poll, about 36% of Americans miss work because of financial concerns. That means your workers’ productivity is being impacted by financial woes. Money is a major source of stress for many Americans — and it has been for several years now.

Money worries tie into mental health, emotional health, relationships, and even physical health. Finances can keep your employees up at night and distract them at work. When your employees can’t focus on their jobs because of their money-related stress, that can be a huge problem. You lose out in terms of productivity and in other ways.

Creating a financial wellness program can help your employees work through their issues and get on the right track. Ultimately, that can help your business.

Consider offering financial wellness programs that allow your employees access to financial planners who can help them map out their goals. It’s even possible to include debt counseling help in your plan. This is a major concern for many Americans, and being able to help your employees get help putting together a debt repayment plan can ease their fears. You can also provide access to financial software, like YNAB, that might come with a fee.

 

Financial wellness benefits

 

Employee wellness programs that include financial health go beyond benefits like a 401(k) plan. An increasing number of companies are starting to offer student loan repayment assistance as a benefit. Other companies offer pet insurance for their employees stressed about providing care for their fur babies.

The reality is that many employees are looking for benefits that can help them with their specific financial issues. When you add financial wellness benefits to the mix, you can help your employees get a handle on the situation.

Once your employees feel more comfortable about their finances, they will be better able to focus at work, providing you with better outcomes.

 

Bottom Line: Employee Wellness Programs Help Your Business

 

Don’t neglect employee wellness programs. Gone are the days when workers were seen as disposable. Instead, if you want to succeed as a modern business, you need to recognize the value of a happy, healthy employee.

Human capital is every bit as important as financial capital. Consider how much time and money go into training employees. Turnover means you have to go through the process regularly, and that can be costly and time-consuming. On top of that, you end up in a situation where you miss out on productivity as you look for a suitable replacement — then have to deal with the learning curve.

Instead, if you can attract top employees and keep them happy with a comprehensive employee wellness program, you can save a lot of time and money. You can also see an increase in productivity.

Workers like to feel as though they are valued by their employers. The right wellness programs can help your workers feel as though you care. They will be more likely to stick around, feel a stake in the success of your company, and work hard to ensure that you succeed in the long run.

Alaska Airlines Employee Calls Tomi Lahren ‘Tami,’ Twitter Loves It

Tomi Lahren got inadvertently shaded by an airline on Twitter, and people were really into it.

The right-wing commentator, who recently got hired as a senior communications adviser at Great America Alliance, apparently had a bad experience on Alaska Airlines and ― as one does ― took to Twitter to tell her tale:

The airline, which responds to most tweets where it’s mentioned, tweeted back to offer their condolences for Lahren’s troubles. However, in their response, they called her “Tami.” 

The company later tweeted that “Tami” was a typo, but Twitter erupted in the aftermath regardless. Twitter users were praising Alaska Airlines employee Ryan, who signed the tweet, as well as the the airline itself:

Nothing like a good typo to get Twitter all worked up. Nicely done, Ryan.

Ultra-Chill Jimmy John’s Employee Takes Sweet Time During Armed Robbery

Tuker Murray is rapidly becoming an internet legend for his cool under pressure.

The 24-year-old assistant manager at a Jimmy John’s restaurant in Kansas, City, Missouri, is the clear star of surveillance footage from Wednesday, when the place was robbed.

Video shows a man police later identified as Terry Rayford walking up to the counter and ordering food before pulling out a gun and demanding cash, going so far as to shove the gun in Murray’s face.

None of that really appeared to impress Murray, though. The video shows him coolly staring down Rayford while slowly pulling off his work gloves and casually opening the register, as if he’s more fed-up than scared.

In fact, he told Buzzfeed News that he wasn’t afraid at all, because he felt like the robber wasn’t actually going to shoot him.

“I was thinking, fuck this guy, dude,” Murray said. “Because he did it like a bitch.”

Fox 4KC reports that the suspect, Rayford, was was already on parole for a different armed robbery and allegedly admitted to committing other robberies to support a drug habit.

But Murray found the idea that Rayford was an experienced criminal hard to believe.

“I was actually surprised when the detective told me that he had done like 12 other robberies and been to jail for it before, ‘cause it was amateur hour,” Murray told TMZ.

Amy Schumer Buys $2,000 Mattress for Store Employee Who Let Her Use the Bathroom

If Amy Schumer asks to use your toilet, make sure you say yes.

The Snatched star was jogging around Chicago recently when she stopped into the local Six Corners Mattress Firm hoping for an emergency bathroom.

Sagine Lazarre, the store employee, happily pointed her towards the restroom, not realizing the desperate jogger was Schumer.

Grateful for the hospitality, Schumer walked up to Lazarre on her way out and asked which mattress was her favorite. She then bought the $ 2,000 mattress on the spot as a gesture of her appreciation.

“It’s amazing, mind blowing. I’m still shocked,” Lazarre told Chicago’s WGN News on Wednesday.

“After she left, I Googled her name. The lady that was right there talking to me is Amy Schumer. It was amazing. Unbelievable.”

Schumer’s new film with Goldie Hawn, Snatched, hits theaters May 12.
