Comment Re:Only remove it for California (Score 1) 218

I certainly agree. However, if you are putting in the accent, then it goes over both the first and second "e", not just the last. I used to think that it only went over the last "e" (because of the American pronunciation).

I only point it out because it is the kind of thing that someone might notice on a job application.

2. If you can't get a job solely because your age is written on your resumé, then age discrimination is clearly still a problem.

Since you care enough to go to the trouble to write the word with an accent, I'd like to point out that correct spelling is résumé, which I was not aware of until recently. For years, I also thought that it was spelled resumé.

Sorry, I was implying that the issue was a non-U.S. birth certificate. Someone who presented a non-U.S. birth certificate could have acquired U.S. citizenship and be eligible to vote - the official can't know just by looking at a birth certificate. So, when presented with a non-U.S. birth certificate, were the officials also demanding proof of citizenship before registration is allowed? The law doesn't demand that they do. The ridiculously easy loophole is still there.

From the Snopes article:

"... Automated voter registration is actually a more secure way of doing things," California Secretary of State Alex Padilla told HuffPost in September. Potential voters "have to demonstrate proof of age, the vast majority of time people are showing a birth certificate or a passport, which also reflects citizenship. That's arguably more secure than someone checking a box under penalty of perjury," Padilla said.

A birth certificate doesn't reflect current citizenship. So is a potential voter being denied registration without proving citizenship? Nowhere in the article does it reference *any* proof of citizenship being required.

The article says that the law doesn't make it legal for non-citizens to register, but it also doesn't show that it isn't trivial for a non-citizen to be registered to vote in California.

Just WHY are the window buttons not at the top right of the window? Why is there no title bar? Why is there no visible border?

Hopefully this might address the problem that I have. When I'm using the touch interface on my Surface Pro, I do have problems using my finger to select between minimize, maximize, and close. I don't know what the solution is, because I use both the mouse interface and the touch interface quite a bit.

What in the world are you talking about?
From the report:

Emails produced to the Committee by the DOE showa sequence of events leading to a premeditated scheme by senior DOE employees “to squash the prospects of Senate support” for H.R. 5544 and the LDRRP.

D. DOE management worked to kill the LDRRP because it did not further the Administration’s goals to advance climate research.
