darren edwards: life’s too short *h&h vip*

Much is said about the risk of injury to jockeys in horse racing and it is something I was left to contemplate recently when sustaining various upper body injuries in a fall over hurdles at Taunton. The mare I was riding was actually brought down, left with nowhere to go when the horse alongside us capsized into our path. The fall hurt — probably more so because I did not see it coming — however, it was the hooves of the 16 other runners that caused much of the damage.Initial reaction after a fall is to move your limbs to identify the source of any pain. Luckily everything worked. Next step is to uncurl yourself from the foetal position that you hope protected you and minimised damage as the other runners thundered past. It was at this stage I realised my ribs hurt, I was short of breath a

injured police recruits entitled to damages for failure to accommodate

​Although five Los Angeles police recruits who suffered temporary injuries during training were not "qualified individuals" under the California Fair Employment and Housing Act (FEHA), and so could not prove their claims for disability bias, they were still entitled to damages on failure to accommodate claims. The city could have temporarily assigned them to light-duty administrative positions instead of discharging them, the California Court of Appeal ruled, upholding a jury's finding of liability. The court, however, overturned the part of the jury's award designed to compensate for future economic damages, finding it speculative and excessive.Each of the five recruits suffered temporary injuries while training at the police academy. At the time they were injured, the department had been

Afterward, several of us headed downtown to Nell’s, which had become a hotspot for the music business and art crowds. The coat-check boy was Tommy Page.Somehow he recognized me and said, “Seymour Stein, I’ve been waiting to meet you all my life!” He looked so young — he was 17 at the time — and admittedly, I was a bit tipsy, so I replied, “Well, that can’t be a very long time!”A month or two later, he sang a few things for me and I signed him to Sire.
