Can an employer legally require a female employee to wear a bra? (USA)

There seems to be some discussion of this elsewhere on the web, but it’s scant on citations to actual regulations or cases. To narrow the scope, let’s say that the female employee dresses so that the lack of a bra is not immediately obvious (but is with some scrutiny), that the employee does not regularly interface with customers (there is no official or de facto requirement for a particular appearance associated with the specific position), and that there is nothing in the company’s written dress code or employment contract specifically addressing such a requirement (the requirement is only stated verbally by the employer based on anonymous complaints from other employees).

Why does function rmcorr in R require a second measure if it needs data in long format? [migrated]

I’m looking to get repeated-measures correlations for an item (test-retest reliability) at two different time points. For this, I will use rmcorr( ) from package rmcorr. My data look like this:

       Time ParticipantID SnapYes
1:    1         12308       7
2:    2         12308       6
3:    1         12309      26
4:    2         12309      34
5:    1         12310       8
6:    2         12310      12

Which are in the same format as bland1995 – the dataset included with rmcorr.

But the args for rmcorr are rmcorr(participant, measure1, measure2, dataset, CIs = c(“analytic”, “bootstrap”), nreps = 100, bstrap.out = F)

Why do I need to give it a second measure? Shouldn’t it just compute correlation between 12308 time 1 and time 2 snapyes scores and so on?

I ask because I cannot run it without a second measure, but I have not other measure?

I also could not get testRetest within Psych to work – that is why I’m trying rmcorr – any help would be appreciated – I’m about to break down and use SPSS!

Thanks for your help!

what are some diseases which require image analysis? [on hold]

what are some of the diseases which require intense medical image analysis which is often difficult for humans to analyse? for example- searching for a hole or anomaly in some tissue, diagnosing tuberculosis,etc.
im building a computer model which can diagnose the disease if x-ray(or any other image) photos are imputed.
thanks.

Airline broke my bag but require a receipt to compensate from authorized company

I flew from Istanbul to JFK with Turkish airline a week ago and my bag came out missing a handle. I quickly went to the counter to claim the damage. The airline gave me an email for me to send all the documents; passport, ticket and the picture of damaged luggage. I sent them everything I got.

They sent another email asking for a receipt for the repair or if it cannot be repair it has to be a written note from authorized company stating that the bag cannot be repaired. I’m in New York. I just want to know if anyone has been into this situation and went to the authorized company to get the bag repaired?

Question: Can my landlord legally require me to have my heat set at 65°F or higher at all times if I pay for…

Legal question for you. Please help. I live in the state of Wisconsin btw. I pay for my own electric heat. It’s quite expensive so when I’m not home I’d like to turn it down to about 58 to save money. My landlord requires all tenants to keep the heat at 65 or higher in the winter. She says it’s so the pipes don’t freeze. But I can’t imagine they’d freeze at 58. That’s what most of my friends do when they’re not home and their pipes have never frozen. Can she legally require me to have it set so high when I’m not home and have to pay for this? This was not stated in the lease.

Does a story require a villain to succeed?

So far in my WIP, which is a “journey” story, the main characters have been struggling against the environment and the fact that they’re displaced and trying to return home. I’ve arrived at a point in the plot where they’re settling in to their situation and I’ve stalled out. I couldn’t figure out why. Now I realize that they don’t have something clear to struggle against. I know what I want them to accomplish over the course of the novel, but I don’t know what, besides a core time travel mechanism in the story, they need to “fight”. I feel like I need some way to create conflict for them (maybe not), but I don’t quite know how. One MC is going to go through a deep bout of depression, and the other will pull him out, but that’s not long-term sustainable. Do I need to have a personified villain? This conversation suggests that I don’t. What non-personified (e.g. environment, time pressure, etc.) are examples of things where I could find inspiration for my story?
