A retired attorney (mostly tired and quit), Robert Gottlieb maintained a private practice in Los Angeles and San Diego for a total of 36 years.
Robert began his general practice focusing primarily on business clients, and in the 1980s began representing insurance company clients. His career as a lawyer provides the backdrop of experience against which he has painted with a broad stroke the disillusionment and exhaustion that haunt the majority of attorneys practicing today.
Born in Los Angeles, Robert lived most of his early life in the San Fernando Valley. He attended public school and graduated from law school in Los Angeles.
Early in his days as a practicing attorney, Robert began making and saving notes involving situations with clients, prospective clients, courtroom proceedings, and the humorous and often absurd stories related to him by other attorneys. It didn’t take long to realize that the practice of law, like any other business, is about people much more than about the law itself.
In the mid- to late 1990s, Robert began to create narratives from hi notes. No Nude Swimming is his first novel.
The main character in his novel is attorney Sam Weisman. His wife wants a divorce, and his law practice is threatened by a hostile takeover. Pulled one way by two hilarious con artists who plan to steal his dreams, and another by his family and the real estate professional who's worked her way into his heart, Sam struggles to hold onto his sanity, his self-esteem, and the woman he loves. Grasping the end of his rope in one hand and the end of his rainbow in the other, he teeters between the abyss ... and the pot of gold!

For Health and Safety Professionals: Bullying Prevention and Intervention
Health and safety professionals and volunteers are disturbed about the physical and psychosocial harm experienced by many youths as a result of bullying by their peers. Bullying among children is aggressive behavior that is persistent, intentional and involves an imbalance of power or strength. Bullying can take many forms such as: hitting or punching (physical bullying); teasing or name-calling (verbal bullying); intimidation through gestures or social exclusion (nonverbal bullying or emotional bullying); and sending insulting messages by e-mail (cyberbullying). There is no one single cause of bullying among children. Rather, individual, family, peer, school, and community factors can place a young person at risk for bullying his or her peers.
Effects Of Bullying
Bullying can be a sign of other serious antisocial and/or violent behavior. Youth who frequently bully their peers are more likely than others to:
· Get into frequent fights
· Be injured in a fight
· Vandalize property
· Steal property
· Use illicit substances
· Be truant from school
· Drop out of school
· Carry a weapon Youth who are the targets of bullying behavior may exhibit signs of:
· Lower self-esteem
· Feelings of fear
· School phobia and absenteeism
· Nightmares and sleeplessness
· Depression and anxiety
Thoughts of suicide Research that looks at the full range of bullying behaviors is finding that the incidence of bullying in the United States is widespread and its consequences more enduring than suspected. In a nationally representative survey of school children, nearly 30 percent reported moderate and more frequent involvement in having been bullied, in bullying or both within the school year. Whether they are perpetrators or targets of bullying, these children face difficulties adjusting to their environments, socially and emotionally.
