    Ha! It’s my opinion of the us health system as compared to other nations, so I’d argue I could probably write 30+ pages on my own- I have no shortage of knowledge/info but hard part is cutting it down.
    Spoiler alert , we’re not very good

    They work about as well as a "gun-free zone" sign outside a school.

    RadioShack runs all of the Target mobile electronics departments. So if someone buys an iPhone or Android, or a cell phone accessory at Target, RadioShack is making the sales with Target getting paid the rental price on the space. It's the same deal they run with their snack stations, how the pharmacies are now run by CVS, (though, that's now actually branded), and the various optometry providers.

    Had my one on one with my boss earlier this week. I was asked why people are leaving.

    New Tax Law – a new tax law could make trades for NHL teams in the United States more difficult. According to the New York Times a new tax law could mean that teams will face capital gains taxes every time a player is traded. “The law changed a corner of the tax code that mostly applies to farmers, manufacturers and other businesses that until recently could swap certain assets like trucks and machinery tax-free. But by adding a single word to the newly written tax code — ‘real’ — the law now allows only real estate swaps to qualify for that special treatment.” “We are looking in to it,” commissioner Gary Bettman told Sportsnet on Tuesday

    So? It's about high time it's treated as such. Especially if people are commodities, like we're in the slave days or something.

    Why only nhl?

    If it's to another country the blue jays could lose a lot of trading partners?

    Yes, poor NHL players, barely able to scrape by on their meager slave wages. They go into that job, thinking they'll only ever have to play in that one location and they could never go to another team. They're all completely blindsided by the business model to which they've become indentured servants.

    Doubtful. The cities will be the last places where shopping dies. Ma and Pa Kettle can buy anything they want from mass production online conveyor belts. The type of shopping that people do in the real cities is still a whole cultural "be seen" thing. It is it's own world.

    NYC will go on long after El Paso and Columbus are dead. And Milan and Paris will go on long after NYC is dead.

    About the "no overtime" thing at my plant: well, that might have worked for the holidays. But when you fall behind, it's "oh. Would you mind staying a little later?"
