I've seen the gamut, from firing people via text message to inviting them to a "breakfast meeting" and having security box up their stuff while they're in the meeting room (and not giving them breakfast, either).
I don't know if "gamut" is the word you were looking for. Both of those things are pretty crappy ways to fire someone.
Full disclosure: my first two cars were station wagons. They were great in high school and college for carrying a group of 8 people somewhere.
Not to mention that the electric car costs more per mile to drive over it's life and is less comfortable, less safe and limited in range.
You're right, you shouldn't mention any of that unless you can back it up with something from reality.
Ending the monopoly could fix this silliness.
And that's why we need to allow the merger of Time Warner Cable and Comcast.
Seems a big mistake to hinge this on intent. It needs to be clear what actions are punishable, not what state of mind.
Intent is a huge part of the legal system. It's the difference between murder and manslaughter.
Well, the N.F.L., N.H.L., P.G.A. and L.G.P.A are tax exempt http://www.nytimes.com/roomfor...
That's because the leagues themselves are not-for-profit organizations. All of the profit in professional sports goes to the individual teams, who do (or at least should) pay taxes on those profits. Whether or not all of the "business expenses" of the leagues are appropriate is, as with any corporation, of course debatable.
Similarly, most religious organizations do not have any owners or shareholders that get dividend checks at the end of every year. I've witnessed first-hand how difficult it can be just to balance the budget; it's always a struggle between higher membership dues, cutting programs, or trying to organize a major fundraising campaign.
The Gauls literally got screwed out of existence.
That's how I want to go.
Death by snoo-snoo?
If I were a watch maker, let alone a person who repaired watches, I'd be cringing.
Then again, based on the number of almost completely destroyed iPhone screens I see, the Apple Watch could be a huge boon to companies that sell insurance and do screen repairs.
Why doesn't some politician campaign against this selfish behavior and call this jackholes out for being anti-American? Maybe everyone's in on the scam.
Because they would never get enough campaign contributions to win an election.
finding out our ideas are completely wrong isn't "interesting", it's a setback.
considering it's a complex set of ideas that potentially describe how the entire universe and everything in it works, isn't "incomplete" or "unfinished" is about the best we can shoot for at this point
I'll just leave this Asimov quote here:
The most exciting phrase to hear in science, the one that heralds new discoveries, is not 'Eureka!' (I found it!) but 'That's funny
