"Iger, the Disney chief, has sought to calm investors worried about ESPN's fortunes, saying rising cable-subscription fees and increased advertiser spending would help the sports giant stay on top. Speaking on Bloomberg TV last week, Iger said, "We have lost some subscribers, but we believe we will continue to derive growth from ESPN. It will just not be at the rate it was before."
I'm not an economist, but I'm pretty sure Iger has the supply vs demand graph all wrong. As demand drops so are prices. Anybody who's taken an economics class can tell you that, so how is it Disney's CEO isn't privy to this bit of knowledge?
"However, the protections that [a ski mask] offers can be attractive to criminal enterprises or actors and HSI [Homeland Security Investigations] will continue to pursue those individuals who seek to use the anonymizing technology to further their illicit activity." When the DHS inquiry was brought to his attention, Lt. Matthew Isham of the Lebanon Police Department was concerned. "For all the good that a [ski mask] may allow as far as speech, there is also the criminal side that would take advantage of that as well," Isham said.
Go fuck yourself you elitist prick. Everyone should have access to a computer regardless of technical savvy, from the elderly to children. If you need a CS degree to be comfortable with an OS, then guess what? That OS has shitty user interface. Get off your high horse.
This is the standard answer to complaints on Linux being difficult to use and it's hilarious in how it misses the point. "Oh, it's too onerous to use? Well you must be dumb/lazy."
Or maybe people prefer ease of use to having to research the hell out of making their OS simply work. Not everyone enjoys slogging through forums looking for ways to do everything they could easily do in Windows/OSX.
Really? How about blaming the person who pulled the trigger rather than inanimate objects? Good grief. I'd say the fact the pastor banned guns in her church was more to blame than guns. These types of mass shootings almost always take place in "gun free zones" like schools or movie theaters. You think that's just a strange coincidence? These sickos know people are unarmed and easy targets.
That roll call link with the vote totals says it's about allowing government workers to withdraw money after age 50 from government accounts and other stuff. So this falls under the other stuff section? Seems odd.
