Dead pixels ARE normal.... Fortunately, so is the replacing of affected devices under warranty.
Uber is currently cheap because they're using VC money to subsidise every ride and making a loss to build up market share.
I've read this several times this year, and I have to say... I don't believe it.
With Uber, I pay for the ride. 80% goes to the driver, 20% goes to Uber. The VC funding is only subsidizing Uber's sophomoric corporate circle-jerk embezzlement-Ponzi scheme.... Not the rides.
With YellowCabs, the customers subsidize the corrupt-political-medalian and regulation embezzlement Ponzi scheme.
I realize I might be splitting hairs here....
Rent is usually the biggest expense of a budget. So that's $36K for rent, leaving $124K for every other expenses. Saying it's "pretty bad" to have $10333 left to live after paying rent every month is why people around the world hate Americans. You fuckers are rich and you're still complaining.
Indeed, It appears to come down to a simple choice. Pay $3k for rent and bus/walk to work, or pay $1k for rent and take an hour long train every morning/evening. Some people just don't wanna sit on a train for 2h a day, costing them $24k a year. First world problems.
I'm inclined to reserve judgement until an accusation becomes a lawsuit and is litigated
Strange, as a 6'2" fugly hetro alpha male, I'm half tempted to apply for a position in this man's org and ask him if he's DTF in the interview. Then, on the way out of the interview, hug him for a little too long instead of shaking his hand.
So could someone explain to me why we hate protectionism?
The closing of the H1B loophole is neither Globalization nor Protectionism. We know Accenture shouldn't be hiring H1Bs as not a single employee or position of theirs meets the rare or exceptional criteria.
He couldn't care less about you or I or how well we are employed. Neither can anyone else in his administration. Don't fool yourself into thinking that is a good thing. It's not. It's only going to hurt us more and more each day it goes on. It's going to hurt the prestige of the nation. It's going to hurt the economic prospects going forward. It's going to affect each and everyone of us in subtle and not so subtle ways. It already has.
My employers solution to this issue:
Fire all of the US staff and massively expand the branch in India. My last day is Feb 7th after 13 years on the job. Thanx Don!
