I shake 'er up. The big pieces float to the top. I scoop them out.
Brazil nut effect. Asteroid problem solved. It took an international team to sort this out? Come on!
It's the same in an organization -- shake it up -- the management rises to the top.
Any similarity to a litter box is purely coincidental
As someone who has had a recent issue with a certain major bank(they closed the account and sent cashiers checks to me for the balance. Waiting 2-3 days without money wasn't pleasant)...I will never go cashless. Relying on these financial institutions for every transaction is something I will not trust. I won't get into the whole NSA/FBI/etc. potential tracking of all my purchases.
Cash is anonymous.
No fees to use cash (yet, I guess)
Further, Hobby Lobby still provides coverage for more than a dozen kinds of birth control. Just not the ones that can induce abortion of an already fertilized fetus.
Do they alow gay people to work for them? Just as religion should have no place in government (hah!), it has no place in the commercial world, either.
It may be a bit dark, but I don't think I'm likely to be eaten by a grue
"Nothing happens here."
"And the history teachers never bothered to mention the Germans and Italians that were in American concentration camps alongside the Japanese."
Yeah? My mother had an italian surname and she joined the Navy. The Japanese-Americans were shamefully interned, but I'd like a reference to support your claim of internment of German and Italian Americans. If you're referring to POW camps, the German and Italian POWs were, by their own accounts, well treated, well fed, and given the option to remain in the US at the end of the war.
Tenure in elementary and secondary schools makes good sense. Otherwise, the school administration. ever eager to save a buck, would lay off the older, higher-paid teachers, and hire new ones at lower wages. Tenure isn't what it used to be anyway, with teacher annual competency reviews and three-year recertification programs. Fail any of these and you're out. Tenure, correctly managed, retains older, experienced teachers, even though they cost more.
needs to go to a war zone for a few months.
Violence has been trending down for decades. This dumb ass just get a hard on with driving around in the military vehicle.
Plus he is in Johnson county doing Sheriff duties. Not anything close to a war zone. Using a few stories from the news to claim America is a war zone is so fucking stupid this guy should be fired.
Wait until he gets the fuel bill for the first month. Then, the first maintenance bill. The MRAAP is a white elephant.
I like how one of the worst CEO's of all time still makes enough money to go on a $2 billion shopping spree. At my job, I only get a bonus when I perform above expectations...
A former boss once said it best: (At the C level) It's a club, and the rule is "F*ck up, and move up!"
A "reset"? I was doing just fine with the old menus. I have no problem with a "reset" if that's what you want. But I'm more efficient when I use the UI I'm used to. So at least, give me the option of keeping the old UI. You can even make the new UI the default. Just leave me a way to use the one I'm used to.
The UI needed to change. It did. Most people who don't have an automatic rejection of any change prefer the new UI.
I have yet to meet one person who prefers the ribbon over the old menu system. Maybe they exist, but I haven't met them yet. If you want to talk about UIs that need to change, I present: Visio. Purchased by Microsoft from Visio and, to this date, the UI is quirky and out of step with the other Office products. And that's putting it kindly.
Office has had 20 years of adding features since then. Features that few could use because they couldn't find them, buried in menus and tool strips and everywhere else
I'm sorry -- is this a plus or a minus, or just a clear indication that Microsoft's Office development team has been badly in need of a competent UI designer for over 20 years?
Most office documents are now editable on the web and on the phone. That's kind of a Big Deal.
Maybe for you. I edit my documents on a wide screen laptop. I'll grant you that being able to share documents is a big deal, but you will never convince me that being able to edit documents on your phone is a major leap forward in anything but frustration and eyestrain.
If the electronics had decided it was time to die, we would have had to replace the machine it controlled, as nobody made electronics and sensors for these old machines.
This is what happens when you have non-technical lawyers and judges trying to rule on technical matters.
