That link points to a story about an online chat for "men and anyone with concerns or questions about prostate cancer".
A chat run by a charity. In the UK.
I don't want to go out on a limb here, but I don't think the Department of Housing and Urban Development, or any US government agency has anything to do with it, so que sera sera.
'Rich people having fun' does have its merits. It may be an inefficient use of capital, but it can still advance science and stimulate the economy.
Certainly it's preferable to 'Rich people sitting on their wealth'.
Where do you shop? Costco has them around $0.35 per pod. Even The super premium brands are under $1 per cup.
When you factor in the cost of living in CA, $70k doesn't go all that far....
Maybe not, but it beats the median household income in California by about $10k source. And it beats the median 1-earner income by $20k.
If teachers make $22k in Brevard, FL, that's pretty tragic, but this lawsuit is about teachers in California, who can be well compensated, depending on the district they're in. Also, as the post you responded to pointed out they get extremely generous benefits. It's easy to disregard them as you did, but the pension contributions and lifetime medical benefits are unimaginably expensive.
Ooops. Commenting to undo my accidental "flamebait" moderation.
Every day we are also learning new definitions of brilliant.
I'm sure you're joking.
But just in case you're not, read the terrifying account of Klebsiella planticola.
Had they just released it to see what would happen, we might all be starving to death right now.
If you purchased an eMachines computer with a floppy drive way back in the late 90s, you can get either $62.50 in cash, or $365 worth of Gateway or Acer stuff from their refurb outlet.
I'd forgotten I ever bought an eMachine until I got the notice last month.
3 providers? Aren't there 4?. AT&T, Verizon, Sprint and T-mobile. T-mobile even dropped the contracts - sort of.
Also, there are an increasing number of no-contract and prepaid services that are becoming credible contenders.
Metro PCS, Virgin Mobile, Boost mobile, Straight Talk, Net 10. There are MVNOs for every one of the major services so you could stay with AT&T's network if you want.
Personally, I switched my family from AT&T to Ting 4 months ago (yeah, shamelessly putting my referral link in there). AT&T bill for a really pared back plan was $110, the Ting bill has averaged $40 and it's a better plan. But you do have to buy the phones.
Mostly in China? What part of the article says that?
"The layoffs will affect workers in the U.S., China and India, according to the newspaper."
Think about what you're saying. Think about it from Apple's perspective.
Kids don't wear watches.
Hundreds of millions of kids. No watches.
And no competition.
That sounds like a market ripe for exploit by someone who already owns the hearts and minds of half the population.
Line B is definitely longer than line A in that Muller Lyer Comparison.
Unless my copy of photoshop is showing its bias also.
Really? In what state is it legal for an employer not to pay out all of your vacation when you terminate?
Seriously want to know - I'd never want to take a job there.
