The retailer NEVER calls the customers bank. They call their OWN bank, who will contact the card issuer using already known information.
Just out of curiousity, what kind of parts are you talking about, where a 3D printed piece of plastic would be an acceptable replacement? In my work on my own older home, the things that are in the can't find/hard to find category are all either structural (2x4s that are actually 2 inches by 4 inches), functional (doorknobs, etc), or decorative (plaster rosettes, etc). None of those are suitably replaced with a piece of plastic, regardless of whether or not it actually 'fits'.
What legal precidence are you talking about? That is completely incorrect. Take something that looks like it might be copyrighted to Kinko's and ask them to copy it. They won't.
That didn't stop the buffoons in PETA from demanding they change the name (they helpfully suggested 'Fishsave'). Somehow they missed all the other 'kills' in NYS (Catskill, Otterkill, Freshkill, etc).
Close. GF wants the IP and people for chip making. IBM wants the IP and people for chip designing.
No, it does not (at least on RHEL). yum list updates shows no available updates to the redhat-release-workstation package.
RHEL 6.5 is just RHEL 6.4 with all the updates already applied. Applying the updates does not change the system-release file.
And like I said, mozilla itself reports that Firefox is at the latest level.
Red Hat Enterprise Linux Workstation release 6.4 (Santiago)
#yum list firefox
firefox.x86_64 24.4.0-1.el6_5 @RHEL-64-x86_64-updates
Go to firefox.com and see 'Congrats! You're using the latest version of Firefox.'
Of course it makes sense. Insurance rates are based on risk. Are you claiming that a car that is on the road all day long, in very congested conditions, making frequent stops to pick up/drop off passengers has no more risk of being in a collision than any other vehicle?
Cab fares are regulated in NYC. Competition has nothing to do with it. http://www.nyc.gov/html/tlc/ht...
You do realize there may be people injured in an accident who are not customers of Uber, right?
Make sure your new numbers are at least plausible, unlike your old numbers.
Lets use your example of Ford. Ford had an EBITDA of around $16B last year. According to your numbers, the labor force only made about 10% of that, or $1.6B dollars. Assume that all value paid to the employees is in the form of cash (no benefits at all). Ford employs around 224,000 people. By your calculation, the average Ford employee made only $7142 last year. Does that sound even remotely possible to you? All those union production workers, engineers, designers, equipment techs, IT personnel, management, etc made on average $7142, with no benefits at all. You are off by at least a factor of 10, which means the employees keep at LEAST 50% of the value they produce, and often quite a bit more than that.
From HBO. Of course, it will cost many millions of dollars, but then you own it and can do whatever you want with it.
Your numbers are completely ficticious and way out of line with reality. What real business has a profit number that is 11X its labor cost? Think of a business like Google - almost all of it's expense is labor. Unless Google's net profit margin is above 50% (and it is not) the employees are keeping more of their 'value' than the company is.
If your numbers were in any way true, there would be no need for companies to control labor costs - they make up less than 9% of the cost. Any cost-cutting measures that targetted something other than labor would be far more effective than targetting labor costs.
I think you need to re-examine who needs to offer a competing product. Complete this sentence: without Aereo, broadcasters and cable companies deliver programming - without broadcasters, Aereo delivers ________
You can't go into a store, steal a bunch of stuff, sell it on the street, and seriously claim that the stores should offer 'competing product'.
