Ending homelessness

The problem of homelessness is as difficult as any problem that any major American city faces — and all cities do face it.

The first story was the Union-Tribune account last week about Michael Clark, a homeless man who was briefly jailed on charges of illegal lodging and encroaching on public property. The 4-by-7-foot “house” that had been donated to Clark by a homeless advocate was seized by police from the sidewalk on 16th Street downtown. The story generated understandable sympathy and compassion for Clark. The second story was the U-T report this week of a 70-year-old alcoholic homeless man who has been taken to hospital emergency rooms nearly 250 times at a cost to taxpayers of some $537,000 in ambulance services alone.

You're Probably Using LinkedIn Wrong. It's time to start using LinkedIn a little more like Facebook or Twitter. The professional social network -- which many use as a virtual résumé -- works much better to help you find your next job if you post regularly to its newsfeed, according to experts.

A recent survey conducted by Pew Research Center found that only 13 percent of LinkedIn users engage with the site on a daily basis. Over 61 percent of users admitted they use the site less than once every week, making LinkedIn the least frequently visited social platform behind Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest. Failing to regularly update your LinkedIn account is a "big mistake," and job recruiters notice, according to Jesse Siegal, senior managing director of the recruiting firm The ExecuSearch Group.
