Rate yourself highly if you feel secure in your job (or as secure as anyone can these days) and are confident about your abilities.
[Pretty good, it is the public service after all. 9]
If your role offers surprise, diversity, challenge and excitement rate yourself highly.
[More a result of poor organisation by those above, but true. 7]
Do you feel your contribution is important to the company? Do you feel unique and needed?
[I'm one of ten who do the same thing, chasing up people's oversights all day. 5]
Do you like your colleagues? Do you feel part of a team?
[You expect about the same for haemorrhoids. 2]
Are you learning? Is your skill set expanding?
[Not the skill set you'd put on a resume'. 0]
Does your job make a difference to the wider world? Do you feel you are helping people?
[Not particularly. As with most enforcement or regulation 'A nuisance' or 'inconvenience' would best describe people's perception. 1]
IN fear of his life, police officer Shane Cribb fired into a Subaru WRX containing career criminal Shannon Johnston as it headed straight for him, a court was told today.
But it will be at least a month before Mr Cribb, 33, will learn whether he will be forced to stand trial for firing those three shots and injuring Johnston at Abbotsford, in Sydney's inner west, in the early hours of January 2, 2001.
Hope for Hicks and Habib
June 29, 2004
SUSPECTED Australian Taliban David Hicks and Mamdouh Habib secured a big legal victory in the United States late last night when the Supreme Court ruled that detainees held at Guantanamo Bay had a right to challenge their incarceration in the American courts.
THE discovery of a gene that controls the bonding process between infants and their mothers promises new insights into autism and other behavioural disorders.
The findings, by a team led by Anna Moles, of the Italian National Council for Research in Rome, indicate that the receptor plays a critical role in bonding between infants and their mothers. This receptor is the same one that responds to opioid chemicals such as morphine and heroin, and is involved in the brain's reward system.
"A pup needs opiate activity in the brain in order to find its mother rewarding," said Jaak Panksepp, a neuroscientist at Bowling Green University in Ohio who has studied the research. "Opiate activity is a very important player in social feelings."
MICHAEL Moore's Fahrenheit 9/11 is a sinister exercise in moral frivolity, crudely disguised as an exercise in seriousness. It is also a spectacle of abject political cowardice masking itself as a demonstration of dissenting bravery.
At no point does Moore make the smallest effort to be objective. At no moment does he pass up the chance of a cheap sneer or a jeer. He pitilessly focuses his camera, for minutes after he should have turned it off, on a distraught and bereaved mother whose grief we have already shared.
But, then, this is the guy who thought it so clever and amusing to catch Charlton Heston, in Bowling for Columbine, at the onset of his senile dementia. Such courage.
Jericho: [Weeping like a bitch] I can't take the pressure Jafa! I'm being pulled five ways at once! I'm poor! I've only got one good-time babe, and I'm married to her! I can't see my abs! I'm finding gray hairs! I masturbate over disturbing internet images far less than normal!
SA Police have said they would fine any motorist with a DVD screen visible to other drivers. The fine is $50 plus a $10 victims of crime levy, but no demerit points. [Well at least they’ve decided to be reasonable about it].
“If a police officer sees such a device being used in a car that may even be likely to distract another driver, they will be fined,” Adelaide Traffic Senior Sergeant Iain Robertson said. “It doesn’t have to be definitive. As long as the officer believes it may cause any distraction to another driver, they can pull the motorist over.”
“A South Australian man with borderline intellectual capacity who robbed an elderly couple in the town of Port Pirie had his jail sentence reduced yesterday on the grounds of being an Aborigine.”
The Court of Criminal Appeal says, "Many Aboriginal people were marginalised and lacked opportunities".
The Grinder says, "Many Aboriginal people are marginalised because of all the extra opportunities".

A New Zealand man has been charged after a cat was microwaved to death.
The 21-year-old Auckland man allegedly put the ginger and white female cat in the microwave after drinking.
The cat's owner went to investigate when she heard screeching from the kitchen and found her cat in the microwave.
A pathologist's report showed the cat had been microwaved for two minutes and that it had suffered acute distress because its claws were extended.
A post-mortem examination showed the animal died of hyperthermia as a result of radiation.
SPCA spokesman Bruce Wills said a microwave heated up the brain until it could not function any more.
"It is pretty painful. I have never seen the claws extended like that. It is the worst case of animal cruelty I've seen.''
The charge of wilful ill-treatment under the Animal Welfare Act carries penalties of up to three years' prison and a $NZ50,000 ($A45,500) fine.
The case would go to court later this year.
There were two Arabs sitting on the roadside having a pint of goat’s milk.
One pulls out his wallet and shows the other a photo and says, “This is my first son, he’s a martyr”.
The second Arab nods in silent acknowledgement.
“This is my second son, he’s a martyr too” says the old man as he shows a second picture.
Again, the other nods. He pauses, and then concludes, ‘Ah, how quickly they blow up’.
Out of touch minister gets hint
Saved by the God for fools children and drunkards, Environment Minister John Hill has backed away from a proposal to clamp down on rainwater use after a public and political backlash.
