After he contracted motor neurone disease he started off with a skateboard but eventually found the wheelchair to be more practical.

Lou Gehrig's disease ... or Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS)

 

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Amyotrophic_lateral_sclerosis

 

Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, also known as motor neurone disease or Lou Gehrig's disease, is a disease that causes the death of neurons controlling voluntary muscles. Some (

  ... as Stiggs) also use the term motor neuron disease for a group of conditions of which ALS is the most common.

Duck-Duck-Go search is very resourceful ...  with We-Don't-Follow-You-Around (with the adverts) ... bonus.

 

 Does anybody else use search engines ... or is it only me? 

 

 

Did you know that if you include smiley or two, e-Tities always rewards you with extra pints?

He needed a gimmick to become famous and wanted a motorbike but couldn't afford it so he stole a wheelchair from the local hospital... The rest is history.

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
