The Chinese are the best bet. Now technologically advanced and also determined to get it done. They also don't have a GOP to wreck everything.
GM and Chrysler aren't good examples. They deliberately crashed their companies so it could become politically acceptable to build their cars in China. This was Ovid to me from 2003. They we're being told what they needed to do.... and ignored all the advice. There had to be a reason that. New factories in China was the reason.
And with that, discussion of the important issues in the original post was hijacked. Unscrupulous employers blaming their workers is nothing new. The real problem here is debt. If the people who work for these asses had cash in the back instead of debt milestones around their necks they could flick these guys the finger and tell them train the cheap foreign Labour themselves. Good luck with that. Calling your people lazy when you're just a greedy prick is bad karma.
The image isn't orthographic. It's a woman smiling while wearing a hat. I see that on the bus many mornings on the way to work.
There are probably two sides to this story.... At least. We only have one of them. Ordinarily, the university management failing to back up a lecturer would be appalling.... Unless the lecturer was appalling. We can't know from the summary.
Just one more example of a conservative government stealing from the many for the benefit of the few.
Water used to be free in all restaurants, even McDonalds. Then Coca-Cola worked out you could charge for it as long as you refused to provide it for free. Terrorists.
As a stop-gap measure (on the way to poisoning the entire planet anyway, eventually).....desalination would buy some time. Religion and cigarettes are two obvious proofs as to why the human race has no future. Not a rational one, anyway. If we can't guard our sanity / mental health and our physical health directly from delusion and voluntarily consumed carcinogens........the air, earth and water doesn't stand a chance. Take the salt out of the ocean water. It's right there at the beach. It will buy some time.
Also.... This guy's enlistment in the army was canceled. Why? Is he a bit crazy maybe? Entrapping the mentally ill wouldn't be too hard.....eh.
Agreed. The US would be a much better, saner country under a parliamentary model, with representatives elected via proportional representation. The US Constitution is proving to be a disaster..... though of course most Americans wouldn't understand why even if you explained it to them. They know next to nothing about alternative political models.... Or why NO ONE copies the US model.... At least, not in the last 50 years.
Yeah...because citizens having guns worked so well in Libya and Syria. Why don't American pay attention to reality? Guns would just result in fascist theocracy in the American South.
BS to this: "the cold waters of Earth's deep ocean have not warmed measurably since 2005", according to a new NASA study, leaving unsolved the mystery of why global warming appears to have stopped in 1998. It started in 1978. But there really has been no warming this century." The careful choice of words about "deep ocean" ignores the rest of the ocean. It takes centuries for the deep ocean to be affected by what's going on up top. Beware of lies told in this way.
Seriously? Stop studying the Earth because what they are finding conflicts with what the GOP prefer to believe? That's insane. Who votes for these idiots? It verges on evil.
It's only a scam if the intention was to defraud or deceive. I don't think that applies here. It's been an opportunity to put the idea out there and see who gets behind it and sorted it with cash. I'm fairly certain that if they were on target to raising the funds we would see concrete things happening. It was always outrageously ambitious. Good on them for trying. But this is perhaps also an example of how private operations are relatively weak compared to governments.... Who do the heavy lifting everywhere. Governments are edging toward a Mars mission. The US$3 trillion Bush flushed down the toilet in Iraq would have been more than enough.
Keep their options open. The tax thing won't be an issue unless they have income that qualifies. Most European countries have tax regimes (and much better service as a result) that leave little room for the US to claim any money.
