An Indiana senator railed against Carrier Corp. for moving manufacturing jobs to Mexico last year, even as he profited from a family business that relies on Mexican labor to produce dye for ink pads, according to records reviewed by The Associated Press. Joe Donnelly, considered one of the nation's most vulnerable Democratic senators up for re-election next year, has long blasted free-trade policies for killing American jobs.
Betcha Fox News will headline this, not T. Sanctimony being 'more important' than treason ... presumably because it's somewhat biblical ...
Bill Moyers again. Sorry. I find it hilarious that Republicans are anti-college, when I keep running across more and more scholarly tomes from universities on the evils of state socialism and neoliberalism.
This misses the history of weblogs; in which a new weblogger craves attention and goes sensationalist. Most would pass through this testing period unscathed, but a few would find themselves up against a wall - to be the pre-internet 'unknown' person, or be the popular internet troll? A percentage would troll-ify. Some would even go on to make money at it.
It's more a question of low self esteem, in my book. Everyone wants to be loved and admired. Funny method of doing it, at the expense of others, but we live in an accelerating 'me first you last' culture now.
This fall, the Supreme Court will hear arguments in a case, Epic Systems Corp. v. Lewis, that asks whether employers may condition employment offers on workers agreeing not to engage in similar collective legal action. President Obama’s appointees on the National Labor Relations Board, and several circuit courts, have held that these types of waivers are unenforceable. But last month, in a highly unusual move, the Trump Justice Department switched sides in the case and filed a brief backing the employers.
Yes, and arbitration? I never go to the Devil when people tell me to.
Can you blame modern sci fi writers, when the future looks bleak? You couldn't really accuse Clarke in his heyday of 'looking backwards'. Nor Asimov.
My concern is the preponderance and love of dystopias. Many young folks seem to hunger for a Hunger Games/Road Warrior/Walking Dead future.
... I've not seen an answer to. Will Earth warm enough (from our own overenthusiasm for greenhouse gases) to significantly reduce human populations, and then slowly return to a more temperate equilibrium? Or can/will it heat enough to make humankind extinct, and then return to 'normal'?
Has anyone done any theorizing about this?
[I come from a tradition of asking stupid questions sometimes yields new insights ...]
Yes, allegedly Kennedy made backchannel overtures to the Soviet Union in the '80's. Andropov declined the 'assistance'. Soviet memos 'prove' the event, though that sourcing brings a certain percentage of doubt into the picture, noone's come out with any serious debunk or denials. The mainstream media didn't really touch it - perhaps because of the sourcing, or because of the status of the implicated party. You would think the revelation would at least spur an investigation, at the time it was reported.
Whichever way you want to parse it, that does not excuse either case of treasonous behavior. It was wrong then (even MORE wrong - that was the Soviet Union, not Russia as it exists today - and what reasoning human being would try to treat with Andropov?), it is wrong now. Putin is not our buddy, he is not a 'competing business entity'. He's a Rottweiler with specific strategies that do not align with our own, while we've got Andy and Opie in the White House.
Neither side of the aisle's gonna like me for this: Kennedy should have been fried like a flounder in court. Trump Jr., no less.
HOORAY, a journo is calling out the marketing BS. If you check out "Visit NM" on Youtube, you'll find only seven videos have over 100,000 views (100,000 being the number where corporations generally consider an Instagram account worthy of significant sponsorship). "We ain't as popular as we think." It would be nice to have an investigation of Longwoods; they seem to be about the only game in town for measuring tourism. Too many similarities in their assessments across very different states, IMHO.
We also learned that what they did get from terrestrial resources came from very modified soils, that they were enriching the soils in order to grow the crops. That supports the argument we've made in our previous work, that these people came up with am ingenious strategy in enriching the soils by adding bedrock to the surface and inside the soil to crate, essentially, fertilizer to support their populations, and that forest loss really isn't a catastrophe as previously described.
You should also see my eye roll when I read "more interesting and complex than assumed." Science should be suspicious of simplicity.
A dealer based in the United Arab Emirates shipped packages containing the artifacts to three Hobby Lobby corporate addresses in Oklahoma City, bearing false label that described their contents as "ceramic tiles" or "clay tiles" and the country of origin as Turkey.
You want a conspiracy? Iraq is likely the place where the earliest Bible stories have their origins. The Gulf Wars ... attempts to destroy and/or cover for existing interpretations? Calling fictional sleuths ...
