Interesting to me is when I am in traffic and I think "That guy wants to cut me off" or "This guy wants to get the jump on me when the light turns green". Sometimes I can point to a behavior and say 'there's the tip-off', but often as not I just get a feel that they're driving aggressively. The automotive body language is (perhaps) emitted and read unconsciously.
Some info about that would have been interesting.
Ya, me too. The usual tip off for me is that they are driving a Nissan Maxima or Ultima. I don't know what it is about these two cars that turn normal law-abiding people into road-rage inducing jerks.
Remember, this is about the wired telephone service wing of Verizon.
It's not just the consumer old-school copper phone line workers that were striking, but those from the FIOS and Business (phone, data) areas as well. Both of these are VERY profitable for Verizon, but the spin the company put on was "oh noes, we are losing money because people are moving to wireless". The workers involved are key in these two areas and Verizon knows it. The two unions involved are well aware of the drop in land-line plan old copper and have negotiated in the past to move workers from that part of the company to the FIOS/corporate areas as they have seen tremendous growth in recent years. Don't believe the corporate hype.
No chance to celebrate, no chance to riot. Which didn't stop a Bruins fan from being killed, incidentally, but apparently no one's bothering to cover that. Apparently sports fans being killed in Boston is no longer news, it's just the status quo.
Link please, I had not heard of anyone being killed in Boston. There were some vague rumors of a Bruins fan being killed in Vancouver, but that seems to be unfounded as well. The Boston police did respond in force after the win, which seemed to keep things relatively calm in the city. Calling them jack-booted thugs is a bit over the top. Boston police do not put up with any hooliganism since the Victoria Snelgrove incident in 2004 and will preemptively quell anything of the sort. It seems that the police in Vancouver were ill-prepared, hence the situation getting out of hand so quickly.
