Thanks, I confused 4 week moving average there glancing over the document. We should be looking at both layoffs and newly created jobs to know if there's a net gain or loss. I'm pointing out the scale involved. Carrier's 1,000 is nothing. It's impossible for him to strike a 50,000 job deal every month. Even if he did it's not going to be the leading force.
Like trying to fill up a swimming pool with a Solo party cup and patting yourself on the back when it rains.
Lets say Trump makes this and another equivalent deal creating 100,000 jobs. Claims for first-time unemployment benefits are around 250,000* monthly. How much time a month should our president dedicating to deal-making with private industry and at what cost to tax payers?
I enjoyed Tron in 3d. Properly, in my opinion, is subtle and doesn't stand out as 'was made for 3d with stuff constantly flying at the audience' when watching it in 2d.
With the death of 3d television sets, i can't see why the cinema wouldn't follow. It probably doesn't make sense from a business perspective to film a 3d movie just for the cinematic release. Cinemas won't install the hardware when so few movies are coming out in 3d.
The difference is that we have the opportunity to review free/open software to verify its functionality and that it is working only in our interests.
Should we trust open software? No, but we don't have to trust it. We can verify for ourselves, or pay someone qualified to do it.
Should we trust closed software? Probably not, but what choice do we have.
1. Much of the automated system that builds and tests Windows itself is a collection of many Cmd scripts that have been created over many years, without which we couldn't build Windows itself!
I knew it; their official build script starts with MS-DOS and a batch file kicks off layers of self compilation to cloud-heights and Windows 10!
Claims for first-time unemployment benefits are around 250,000* monthly. How many calls a month should our president be making to private companies? I'm not familiar with the terms of whatever deal Trump made with Carrier and if it costs taxpayers money.
On the topic of making stuff up, someone has to be wrong and I don't know how the left and right can be living in such alternate realities. What about the current unemployment rate*? At 4.6% it's only 0.2% higher than the lowest it's been in 10 years; 3.8 was the lowest that's gone in 20 years. Is this number wrong or made up? Do you have more examples of what you feel is made up?
