iAmErika Unique Coded Design

My website is unique as CSS controls the border of the image frames.  I decided using code for styling because it is underused on the internet.  A lot of templates used in CMS do not use all the features of CSS.  The styling gives the frame an embossed look at the top and bottom.  

iAmErika.com was redesigned with a responsive HTML5 template.  This is to allow scaling for different platforms like a mobile phone or a tablet.  Cascading Style Sheets (CSS) are used in every page and control the look and feel of the web site.   

All illustrations and photographs are original and copyrighted.  There are some free stock images on the website and those that were purchased. 

The stylized logo illustration was designed by a contractor and it has been trademarked with the USPTO.  The trademark is classified for web services and photography.  The transparent favicon features the first letter in the logo. 

The overall effect is that the website is simple and fast to load.  Validation shows that the errors are minimal.  Keep watching the website as it develops!

Current IT Hiring Trend

Exasperated IT job seekers are everywhere and even though the IT industry is going through a shake up and employers may or may not hire due to uncertainty I believe demand will plateau or increase for computing specialists.  

Hiring managers look for the candidates with the highest attained degree but the best candidate is the one that fits the role and culture of the company.

Sexual Harassment Steps

There are two forms of sexual harassment:

Quid pro quo or this for that, occurs when some kind of sexual act is asked for or required in exchange for something else.

Hostile work environment is persistent dirty jokes or offensive comments.

First find something you can use in that situation. Think of about at least three ideas, and be ready to think on your feet. If you try something out and it doesn't work you have not made the situation any worse.  You can try something else. And something else after that.

1. Clearly communicate your desire for the behavior to stop.

2. Do all you can to make a record of the instances.

3. Get emotional support from friends, family, or a therapist.

4. Seek resolution and put complaints on record through whatever channels are available to you, such as the State Appeals Board.
