The Background Check

The Back Ground check that is used by Employer/ Human Resources serves  as a end all do all in hiring their potential employees. They must fill out paper work, interview,  and wait for their background check results.
The employer now use the background check process as a quick and efficient way to eliminate  potential employees with a history. I am not sold on a background checks that exceeds 10 years. After 10 years if you filed Bankruptcy it automatically drops off your credit, and can never be held against you… Although a crime you committed 15 years ago will influence if you will be hired today.
The definition of a a background check- It is a way to find information about someone that may not be readily available. Individuals and institutions choose to conduct background checks for a whole host of reasons. Background checks are conducted through third party institutions and are meant to provide a picture of an individuals character based on past actions and records. Background checks reveal information about an individuals professional, financial, criminal, and public history. They include everything from speeding tickets to time spent in jail, bankruptcy to employment history. 
I do think that it is important to know who the person is based on his or her past, but lets look at the facts here. Does any of you know who Frank William Abagnale, Jr is?   You see Abagnale, Jr was known for his history as a former confidence trickster, check forger, impostor, and escape artist. He became notorious in the 1960s for passing $4.5 million worth of meticulously forged checks across 26 countries over the course of five years, beginning when he was 16 years old. In the process, he claimed to have assumed no fewer than eight separate identities, impersonating an airline pilot, a doctor, a Bureau of Prisons agent, and a lawyer.
Abagnale’s life story provided the inspiration for the feature film Catch Me If You Can.
In 1974, after he had served less than five years, the United States federal government released him on the condition that he would volunteer to assist the federal government in apprehending people who committed crimes of fraud and scam artists
  
Abagnale tried several jobs, including cook, grocer and movie projectionist, but he was fired from most of these upon having his criminal career discovered via background checks and not informing his employers that he was a former convict. Finding them unsatisfying, he approached a bank with an offer. He explained to the bank what he had done, and offered to speak to the bank’s staff and show various tricks that “paperhangers” use to defraud banks. His offer included the condition that if they did not find his speech helpful, they would owe him nothing; otherwise, they would only owe him $50, with an agreement that they would provide his name to other banks. The banks were impressed by the results, and he began a legitimate life as a security consultant.[10]
He later founded Abagnale & Associates,[10] which advises businesses on fraud. Abagnale is now a millionaire .Abagnale also continues to advise the FBI, with whom he has associated for over 35 years, by teaching at the FBI Academy and lecturing for FBI field offices throughout the country.  

The hoax or sham that most employers put on a employment application is just that, they claim that it does not matter if you have been convicted of a misdemeanor or felony! Although when they send you a letter for denial of employment because of you past criminal record, would it be safe to say that the company lied to you? Your dammed if you tell and dammed if you don’t!
My desire to be the best pushed me to want to succeed in what ever I put my mind to. Since 1990 I worked as a sheet metal apprentice, delivered pizzas, sold life insurance, graduated from ITT Technical Institute, worked as Field Technician, Sold Cars, and worked as Loan Officer. 
Ideally speaking you would think that a crime I committed a 30 years ago would not effect me in my search for employment in the year 2010, right? Unfortunately that is a farce no consideration to who I am or what I have become even matters! Companies claim that they don’t want these Bernie Madoff types working for them…  A note to the wise, Charles Ponzi (The Ponzi Scheme), and Bernie Madoff (50 billion he schemed for)  were not  career criminal . These guys did not look at a book to figure out how to be a criminal, they wrote the dam book. 
Unfortunately Background checks can help you with the average criminal or people with bad credit these guys are either already in your company or companies are getting ready to hire them!!! 
Lets look at the facts here, Background checks only help companies if that person committed a crime, or have bad credit… Nothing in a persons heart can ever be determined by a background check. Did anyone ever consider what the world would be like if the United States federal government, or the banks  had not given Frank William Abagnale, Jr a chance?

If God can forgive you for your sins and The Federal Government & bank institutions for give Abagnale, Jr for his crime, why should you as an employer say no?

Agostino De Laurentiis , usually credited as Dino De Laurentiis, was an Italian film producer  died he was , 91.

  (8 August 191911 November 2010)                

 

 

 

Biography

He was born at Torre Annunziata in the province of Naples, and grew up selling spaghetti produced by his father. His studies at the Centro Sperimentale di Cinematografia in Rome were interrupted by the Second World War.
Following his first movie, L’ultimo Combattimento, (1940) he produced nearly 150 films during the next seven decades. In 1946 his company, the Dino de Laurentiis Cinematografica, moved into production. In the early years, De Laurentiis produced neorealist films such as Bitter Rice (1946) and the Fellini classics La Strada (1954) and Nights of Cabiria (1956), often in collaboration with producer Carlo Ponti. In the 1960s, Dino De Laurentiis built his own studio facilities, although these financially collapsed during the 1970s. During this period, though, De Laurentiis produced such films as Kiss the Girls and Make Them Die, an imitation James Bond film; Navajo Joe (1966), a spaghetti western; Anzio (1968), a World War II film; Barbarella (1968) and Danger: Diabolik (1968), both successful comic book adaptations; and The Valachi Papers made to coincide with the popularity of The Godfather.
In 1976,[1] De Laurentiis relocated to the USA where he set up studios, eventually creating his own studio De Laurentiis Entertainment Group (DEG) based in Wilmington, North Carolina; the building of the studio quickly made Wilmington a busy center of film and television production. During this period De Laurentiis made a number of successful and acclaimed films, including The Scientific Cardplayer (1972), Serpico (1973), Death Wish (1974), Mandingo (1975), Three Days of the Condor (1975), The Shootist (1976), Drum (1976), Ingmar Bergman‘s The Serpent’s Egg (1977), Ragtime (1981), Conan the Barbarian (1982) and Blue Velvet (1986). It is for his more infamous productions that De Laurentiis’s name has become known — the legendary King Kong (1976) remake, which was a commercial hit, Lipstick, the killer whale film Orca (1977); The White Buffalo (1977); the disaster movie Hurricane (1979); the remake of Flash Gordon (1980); Halloween II (the 1981 sequel to John Carpenter’s 1978 classic horror film); David Lynch‘s Dune (1984); and King Kong Lives (1986). De Laurentiis also made several adaptations of Stephen King‘s works during this time, including The Dead Zone (1983), Cat’s Eye (1985), Silver Bullet (1985) and Maximum Overdrive (1986); Army of Darkness (1992) was produced jointly by De Laurentiis, Robert Tapert and the movie’s star Bruce Campbell. They distributed the animated Transformers movie.

De Laurentiis also produced the first Hannibal Lecter film, Manhunter (1986). He passed on adapting Thomas Harris’ sequel, The Silence of the Lambs, but produced the two follow-ups, Hannibal (2001) and Red Dragon (2002), a remake of Manhunter. He also produced Hannibal Rising (2007), which tells the story of how Hannibal becomes a serial killer.
In his later choice of stories he displayed a strong preference for adaptations of successful books, especially sweeping classics like The Bible: In the Beginning (1966), Barabbas (1961), or Dune (1984).
In the 1980s he owned and operated DDL Foodshow, a specialty retailer with two gourmet Italian markets in New York City and Los Angeles.[2]
In 2001 he received the Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award from the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences.
De Laurentiis died on 10 November 2010 at his residence in Beverly Hills, California.[3][4][5] Services will be at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels. His family requests that mourners wear red, the producer’s favorite color.
Funeral services for producer Dino De Laurentiis will be held at 1:30 p.m. Monday November 15th 2010 at the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels, 555 W. Temple St., Los Angeles.

Family

His brief first marriage in Italy was annulled.[6] In 1949 De Laurentiis married actress Silvana Mangano, with whom he had four children: Veronica, Raffaella, who is also a film producer, Federico, who died in a plane crash in 1981, and Francesca. They divorced in 1988[7] prior to her death in 1989. In 1990 he married movie producer Martha Schumacher, with whom he had two daughters, Carolyna and Dina. One of his grandchildren is Giada De Laurentiis, host of Everyday Italian, Behind the Bash, Giada at Home and Giada’s Weekend Getaways on Food Network. His nephew is Aurelio De Laurentiis, also a film producer and the chairman of SSC Napoli football club.
