@paulcarr @JoeDiNardo Who owns "the employer's email system?" But the protocol is usually, if you're the recruiter calling *back* someone who gave you a resume, NEVER call back at the office or go through the corporate email. The person looking for a job may not want his current company to know he's looking. But if you're a recruiter doing cold calls, you don't give a shit.

@ioconnor @robertogreen Similar to my thoughts above. The policy is not illegal. It's the collusion (and thus cartel) that is illegal.
@Viscers @ioconnor@JustinPaulson@JJHo It isn't against the law to have a policy to not hire from another company. Maybe you just don't like the way people are taught to do things at that company. What's against the law is the top level agreement(s) to do that. So, the HR person was fired for violating an internal policy. That HR person is still in the wrong.
A is true. B is true. But A did not cause B.
2 years, 6 months ago on What I See In Jeremy Lin
A successful AA musician is "breaking the mold?" Have you not been practicing your violin or piano? :)
But you're right. The pride in Jeremy Lin is in the acknowledgement that we can be successful in things more than what people have been accustomed to.
However, there is one more thing. It's about basketball itself. Asians LOVE basketball. But we generally don't have the height. Yao Ming came along and as good or as proud as we might be for him, he was 7'6" and a single physical specimen from 1Billion Chinese. Jeremy Lin, though, is lauded for having a high BB IQ. He is a "pure PG." He is "all about the team." These are qualities each individual can develop through practice and hard work. These are qualities many of us think we carry when *we* play basketball. And the joy we feel is to see that it was first unrecognized (so we can identify with it), and then given the chance, it could be shown to be so successful (so we can have hope).
As one of those parents, I applaud you for your insight. But just wait for, "Why can't you be like Jeremy Lin!?" :)
