SWA is negligent to their stockholders for not keeping up with the times. They should know all about twitter and the effects 1 annoyed passenger can have. It is a matter of training and putting procedures in place. The Gate attendant was in the right, and could have just made the point that she would be annoying the other priority passengers by giving him priority when he was not due it. SWA management completely mishandled it and blew it out of all proportion by stopping the flight and yanking the passengers thereby making a newsworthy story and giving themselves a very expensive case of bad publicity. It could have been handled by just a tweet explaining the policy and why putting him ahead of others would have been bad for other passengers. Then it would not have been a news story.
What happens to the kids embroiled in this mess? What happens when Universities refuse to accept students who do not meet scientific standards?
Not only is the president immune from prosecution given the Nixon example, but none of the bank managers, presidents or CEO's were ever jailed for causing the last financial disaster. That if nothing else proves that the US is an Oligarchy.
That makes me curious about how they go about putting Chinese names in either the terrorist list or no fly lists. The Chinese name Chan, Chin, Tan, Chun etc... are all the same Chinese character for a last name on a Chinese passport.
If this has a face recognition system app built into it. See your wife, it brings up anniversaries, birthdays etc.. See a congressman, it brings up a list of all the corporations/organizations that fund him and a list of his voting record. See a random stranger, bring up criminal records if any, etc..
Thanks for all the stories, you will be missed.
The reason NASA's budget is cannot be cut is Congress. Any time NASA wants to shut down obsolete projects or consolidate projects Congress steps in to stop them. NASA early on spread itself into as many Congressional districts as possible to gain the most political pull, now it has come back to bite them in a major way.
How about teach the Indian cosmology, Chinese creation, African tribal belief's in cosmology? Do they have to teach all of that now too?
Lawmakers are not scientists, do not understand it and have no idea what science is. These are the same people who would legislate PI. Then again the Republican party has proved throughout the last election that they have their own idea of truth or facts that have no bearing reality.
What was your funniest encounter with the supernatural believer/perpetrator?
I can not see such a sensor being too useful. A built in carbon monoxide detector would be of more use to me.
I would leave it up to the insurance companies, let the insurance companies charge extra or not pay for treatment of people who get sick from diseases they should have been vaccinated for.
Yes, they should put the GM label on every food we eat that has been genetically modified from its original stock. Just label 100% of every produce in the super market as GM'ed since that is the case. Hmm, what about the GM'ed drugs that we are all taking now do we label those too?
Now here is something for Anonymous to take up. A man being executed as there is no "Freedom of Speech" in that area of the world.
I can see them doing this and then finding out that their db is totally corrupt due to multiple data disk losses. Looking for their last backup tape to find them missing or that someone has spilled coffee all over them etc..
