Adapted from a recent online discussion.   Question: My husband and I both worked full time while our children were young, and my parents looked after them full time. My husband and I were able to pad our retirement plans, and we retired last year. My daughter-in-law is expecting, and we couldn't be happier. I offered to watch the grandchildren, as it would enable both my son and daughter-in-law to work full time. To my surprise, my daughter-in-law is working part time and using a day-care facility attached to her workplace.

Full time is the only way to go if the Gloucester County Institute of Technology is to remain a viable educational alternative in the area, a special panel has suggested. After four months studying the institution's future, the seven-member group presented a plan to the Gloucester County Board of Freeholders last week that would make the GCIT a full-day school for students in ninth through 12th grades. GCIT Superintendent Victor Morella said in a recent interview that the adoption of statewide core-curriculum standards last year, plus shrinking state aid to shared-time schools such as the institute prompted the review.

The limp is barely noticeable when she wears sneakers that cushion the injured nerves in her left foot. At poolside, barefoot, it is more obvious. Memories of the dreadful accident on the Georgetown University campus will never disappear entirely. But almost five years after the five-story fall that shattered her body and her hopes of college swimming stardom, Michelle Konkoly still is working to be the best she can be. In September, the Montgomery County woman expects to be in Rio de Janeiro, competing again in swimming, but this time, she will be in the Paralympic Games.

La Salle University hired Aramark Corp. to run its dining services. Under the contract with Aramark, all of La Salle's current full-time food services employees will maintain their La Salle years of service and their eligibility for tuition remission, and have a comparable health-insurance plan, said Jon Caroulis, a spokesman for the Philadelphia university. The La Salle operation employs 100 full time and 60 part time, he said. Aramark's higher education division manages food services for more than 600 colleges and universities in North America, according to the company.

Question: I got divorced and had to start working full time after five years of working part time or staying home with my son. I am having a really hard time coping. I miss having time to play with my son, I miss having a clean house, I miss having more time with my pets. I am overwhelmed and have so much less time for the things that matter to me. Logically, I know I have to work full time. I am my family's sole support now. But I hate it. I cry when I think of the field trips I won't be able to volunteer on, the sports games and practices I will have to miss, and all the other things most working moms don't have time for. I wanted to be my son's primary caregiver, and now I will never have that.

WE WERE informed, upon returning from the holiday break, that we were losing our nurse, from full time to three days a week. We miss the district's threshold level for qualifying for a full-time nurse, which is 850. We have 838 students, many of whom are medically fragile students with myriad health issues that require medical attention on site. The Philadelphia Federation of Teachers has advised all of its constituents not to assist with the dispensing of medicine, which then falls to the administrators.

The routine traffic check that Patrolman Joseph Wilson made one evening in East Fallowfield began like all the rest. A driver was stopped and arrested for having a suspended license. Then the routine became unpredictable. This particular driver was a fugitive, wanted in Avondale. Wilson was to become his next victim. After returning to the East Fallowfield police station on Strasburg Road, the suspect suddenly went berserk, grabbing Wilson's night stick and beating the policeman to the ground.

Greg Wade had 60 days to get a job or go to prison for embezzling almost $138,000 in scholarship money from the Philadelphia Home and School Council. The judge's deadline was Thursday, and Wade, the council's disgraced former president, came before Common Pleas Court Judge Joan A. Brown with a job. Barely. Wade, 55, told Brown that he was working for $7.35 an hour in maintenance at a South Philadelphia supermarket. He began last week. He worked eight hours. Brown, who was talking about a full-time job, gave Wade another 60 days, ordering him to return to court May 12 - or go to jail.

A University of Illinois at Chicago survey finds Philadelphia among the 12 best cities at providing investors with financial information online. It may seem odd to think of cities needing to provide investor relations services in addition to picking up the trash, putting out fires, and arresting criminals. But the U.S. municipal bond market is estimated to be $3 trillion. So you'd hope the issuers of all that debt would be diligent in keeping the buyers of that paper informed. Wrong.

WASHINGTON - Aides to Rep. Gabrielle Giffords said Tuesday she wants to return to her job in Washington if her physical and mental recovery allows it. A day after she stunned colleagues by appearing on the House floor to vote for the debt-ceiling deal, Giffords planned to return to Houston on Tuesday after meeting privately with staff. It's unclear when she'll return to work. Spokesman C.J. Karamargin told the Associated Press that she is eager to return but can't make decisions yet about whether to seek reelection in 2012.

DEAR ABBY: I am recently engaged, and both my fiance and his mother keep trying to set up "play dates" between his mom, my mom and me. I understand this may be a social norm so the mothers of an engaged couple can get to know each other during the engagement. However, my mom wants nothing to do with these dates. Mom works long hours in the medical field. When she isn't working, she's frequently babysitting my sister's children. When she has free time, she enjoys being alone and reading a good book.

Question: I could use some perspective here. My husband and I recently had a baby. After three months of maternity leave, I went back to work full time for about a month but had to drop down to part time because I was exhausted with the kiddo not sleeping well. Fast-forward through a layoff, finding a new job, and starting back full time: I'm happy with my new job, but still struggling to keep the household running smoothly, getting dinner ready, cleaning, etc. The problem is that when I ask for help with this stuff, I get the look: the one that says if I just quit my job, I would have time to take care of all this.

The job market for law school graduates improved dramatically last year, with law firms competing aggressively to recruit the best prospects, a study released Tuesday shows. Major law firms made offers to 95.3 percent of all summer interns, the highest offer rate since the 2008-2009 recession, according to the study by the National Association for Law Placement. The number of summer internships, a stepping-stone to full-time employment, also was significantly higher, said NALP, a Washington-based group that tracks lawyer hiring.

Question: Friend recently got married and seems totally uninterested in spending time with friends, what's going on in our lives, etc. (We are a mid-30s mix of married/single/otherwise coupled, kids/no kids.) Friend will give reasons she is busy before we've even suggested something or, when we finally do something, will comment how it's "been forever," despite our invitations on an almost weekly basis. It started pre-wedding, but we chalked it up to the time it takes to wedding-plan. How do we approach Friend about this without sounding defensive?

Community colleges in New Jersey, lagging behind their counterparts nationwide, have been attacking a well-known problem: getting students to graduate. Both locally and nationally, some students register and never show up the first day; others leave after one semester. Nationally, about 40 percent of full-time students leave after the first year. Of the students who started full time in 2010 at public community colleges nationwide, 19.5 percent had graduated three years later, according to the latest numbers from the federal Department of Education.

Steve Patterson's parents owned a small hotel and restaurant in the West Midlands of Worcestershire, England, when he was growing up, so the fact that his three-year-old business provides places to stay in Philadelphia makes perfect sense. Except that Patterson's Ur Home in Philly (UrHip) places people in need of shorter-term accommodations in one of its 48 homes in the city, Conshohocken and the Valley Forge area rather than in hotel rooms. "Hotel rooms can get claustrophobic after a time," said Patterson, noting that the apartment homes in his growing UrHip portfolio are a good deal larger.

There's part time - and then there's the shift that Olivia Smith-Bey, 20, said she worked Wednesday at McDonald's. A stunning 56 minutes. "I got there at 2 p.m. and clocked in," she said. "Not even an hour. " There wasn't enough business, she said, so she was sent home, after spending $2.25 each way to get from her house in West Philadelphia to the restaurant in North Philadelphia. "I was upset," she said. Smith-Bey could be Exhibit A in a study of part-time workers that is to be released Thursday by Rutgers University's John J. Heldrich Center for Workforce Development, in New Brunswick.
