We're sorry your son was killed while being taken to custody Mr. Smith. He was resisting. No, there won't be any repercussions as the officer said he was acting in his own self defense. Camera? Oh, no ma'am we have no footage, while it is department policy to turn it on before any confrontation, the officer forgot to turn it on. He will be given 2 weeks paid suspension. ... Yeaaawn

" UPDATED 7:15 PM -- "This is a big one. For the last 22 years I've been involved in the repair and the rehabilitation of sinkholes." -- Rehabilitation? What does he train them to enable them to have more opportunity? So when they do have to face life on the outside they can maybe become a Pot Hole, or better yet, a swimming hole, and having a positive impact to society. If this program had better funding, I'm sure repeat offenders like this would not have to resort to the old ways.

First thing to do is complete a real analysis of the code and report to management with an estimate to re-write complete sections of the code. Go into it realistically and tell them up front what it will take to correct things, and why. I have been in this situation several times in my career and that has always been the best approach. There is no need to "knock" the other guys code (be positive, never the mudslinger) and done correctly, would look more like you have some fresh ideas that may not have been designed into it originally. Eother way, management wants to know what to expect and having realistic expectations as soon as possible will save everyones face in the loing term. If they feel your out of line, well, then it's time to look at all those other jobs your contemplating.

First, the US is delaying its test because it doesn't want it to be misunderstood and provoke an attack on S. Korea. Thats probably all. The whole threatening thing is for the most part a show to justify the continued militarization of N.K. and also to solidify the new regime's power over the people and gain their trust.

I'd really be more concerned with only being able to devote one hour a day. I found myself going many hours once I began concentrating. One hour may be fine for starters, but you'll soon see it takes much longer to lay out your entire thought process for the part you are working on on a given day.

You know, the difference between this company and the Titanic is that the Titanic had paying customers.
