Cruel and Unusual: The Plight of Seeking Medical Parole or Medical Care While in New York State Prison
Prisons in New York state are far from a five-star resort. When entering the darkened world of the belly of the beast, not only is an inmate stripped of their identity where they become a number but basic human rights often are shed by the wayside. Imagine not having the ability to have a warm shower at times, decent food, fresh fruits and vegetables, the right to not be falsely accused of disciplinary infractions, the right to adequate shelter and the right to medical care. Most recently, according to research done by the reporters at the NY Times in December 2016 , Continue reading
Life is full of challenges. Some don’t require much effort while others seem like ominous, impossible circumstances that linger quite some time, until we figure them out… if we figure them out.
My biggest challenge in life has been growing up as a transgender woman in a world that doesn’t understand what “transgender” means. It’s been a series of challenges really, all stemming from being transgender (or perceived “different”) in today’s cultural and social climate.
Rochester Woman Online would like to to introduce you to the “Divas”. We all have heard about them, or we all know them and now we are excited to be able to share the adventures of Kelly Breuer and Cheryl Kates-Benman; known as the Diva’s with you each month.

We may even introduce a few other Divas as we go.
Look out for Cove’s special feature monthly “Because You’re Worth It”. Women are often care-takers in their homes with responsibilities pertaining to their husbands, children, and pets. At the end of the day, women need to take time out for themselves and focus on their well-being. Often, women do not do this. Cove prides herself in being able to share a bit of herself with others and to help guide them on a wellness journey to overall health.
Virginia Woolf, a groundbreaking author and her own publisher, may have put it best when she declared that “a woman must have money and a room of her own if she is to write fiction.” In so few words, she summarized the host of challenges facing female writers.
Many of the issues related to publishing in the days of Virginia Woolf persist. She herself was a self-published author.
We may have made some great strides since then in voting and political rights but, as the wage gap shows, we still have some way to go in publishing.
Assuming we are lucky enough to possess good health and safety, we will all become “senior citizens” (or as I prefer “senior adults”) in our lifetime. What that means to each of us varies greatly depending on our own health, financial situation, family, personality, culture and many other factors that affect attitude and ability to create the life we desire as we age.
Most working mothers have asked themselves the same question I did after the birth of my sec-ond daughter in June of 2013: “Do I go back to work?” Luckily, my decision was made for me. I was laid off from my corporate job at Bausch + Lomb after their acquisition by Valeant Pharma-ceutical International–just one day after my maternity leave ended.
Is social media worth it? It’s an important question for a business owner to ask, because many businesses don’t even measure social media’s return on investment. They don’t measure social media at all.
Every tool and human effort your business is involved with should be held accountable in some way. Social media is a tool – a powerful one for your business. Like all tools – if it’s used correctly it can build empires. Conversely, if it’s used incorrectly it can destroy them or not build a solid foundation for your empire. Social media is also not about cat videos and motivational quotes – there’s a time and place for everything; just not every 3rd post on your profile or company page.
