Who has even heard of these stores? Didn't Aaron Bros.go under in 1987? Who wants to take the timeRead More to hack into these accounts? Dummies that shop there don't have any money! Low-brow and low income customers who bring in their 5 screaming kids ( 4 are obese!) And their parents let them terrorize the rest of the shoppers. Free babysitting while Mommy orders an extra large Slushee for Remo and his ADD. Why ? Parents weren't parented either. Or its considered cute as Jr. has his meltdown with sticky chocolate fingers !

Security is a deterrent not a preventative measure. There is no way to be secure from everyRead More possibility because it is impossible to even conceive of every possibility. Instead we try to secure against the threats we know of through experience and those we may anticipate through inference extrapolated from those experiences. The businesses are naturally and rightly profit driven and things that do not directly and or immediately hurt the bottom line do not get priority funding. Thieves too are profit driven though they are less regulated than business and in general face more personal risk than businesses typically do toward realizing their bottom line. Due to the actual few distinctions between the thief and business the thief must be the more resourceful of the two and thus more innovative. Security is always going to be a reactionary means of preventing theft. The proactive means to prevent theft are to accept there is no absolute security and otherwise either too expensive, too harsh, too time consuming or some combination of those. Considering how long humanity seems to have dealt with the issue, one might think we would have tried all of the available variables and figured it out sometime during the last 5000 years through trial and error. Oh wait, we have. Communities where the moral code is instilled in the population from cradle to grave coupled with punishment, justly applied, for infractions have almost zero crime and it costs them almost zero dollars. Face it folks, we're all hippy freaks living in/on a commune we call Earth. Continually spending good money over top of bad as our orthodox approach has required over the centuries has only produced more crime and or prisons. This implies more crime/prisons is the goal if you THINK.

Maybe take it out by Homeland. I used to work by the Amy's Frozen Foods manufacturer in Santa RosaRead More and it stunk so bad when you went out side you would want to puke. Until you work or live by that foul smelling stuff you have no idea. Someone should invent how to catch the horrible smells before it leaves the buildings.

Perhaps the only solution would be to have it made outside the USA. and have the company import it,Read More problem solved. Most Americans dont like these odors that burn the eyes etc. but they are getting accustomed to ordering them in restaurants that specialize in certain ethnic foods, then they can leave eating establishment and not have to smell it anymore. I used to live near people from india that cooked with curry all the time and had to keep my clothes in plastic bags as everything in the home reeked from the Oder all the time. They were nice people but never understood why Americans found fault with their cooking smells. Perhaps this is the case here with sriracha.

Using that logic, the owners of crackhouses can just ignore what happens there. No, if you own aRead More house, you are responsible for what goes on there.

southernbelle February 24, 2014 at 07:48 am
^^agree--as an owner YOU are responsible. What you're suggesting Brenda is much like if a businessRead More offers endless amounts of alcohol to someone, that someone runs over and kills another run their parking lot--then saying it is not the responsibility of the business owner to administer responsible goods to their patrons, nor monitor or have ANY CLUE whatsoever, what any of their patrons are doing inside the establishment. Um…if you paid over $8000 in a mobile home over the span of 13 months---you aren't very bright with your money. The very first month you should've been knocking down the door at SCE, and raising hell to a very loud level. It's foolish to just keep paying and not demand better service. SCE showed up one morning on my front lawn, started spray painting an orange line about 4 ft in from the street. Never knocked, never gave me notice… I went outside and asked what was happening. They told me our neighbors were having trouble and the line was best accessed from MY front lawn! They thought they were going to dig a damn trench the entire length of my lawn!! I looked at these ol' boys (all about 250 +lbs, bearded, tattoo'd, etc) and said just one thing, "OH HELL nooo!" That's about all a man needs to hear from a southern woman to know he best have a plan B, because his plan A ain't EVEN going to happen!! I wrestled with SCE for over 2 weeks, they'd show up, I'd walk out. They'd call, I'd say NO! I won. They ended up digging up the street PAR had to come fix some things, they ended up digging in THE neighbors yard who had the problem (ruined their lawn instead of mine!) and that was that. Btw, from the first time I stated my "Oh Hell No," with feet planted firmly, hands on hips, eyes looking straight at the foreman---I had their respect. hahahaha--I still remember as I said it to the foreman in the corner of my eye the worker who had already started digging, stuck his shovel right back in the dug up dirt, without a second guess, and just started piling it right back in the hole he'd made! hahahahahahahahaha you should a seen the look on that kids face!! hahahahhaahaha

Tough Mudder brought lots of folks and highly desirable revenue to the corridor as a matter of fact!!!

Francis Soyer: Point of information if you will. When one is going to install the new LED light bulbRead More which would be the preferred choice? The MiracleLED Un-Edison 60W Equivalent Frost or the Samsung A19 60-Watt Warm White. From the knowlege you demonstrated above I thought I would ask an expert.
Francis Soyer January 30, 2014 at 07:27 am
Vincent - Honestly I'm not too familiar with either product. Neither is an "industryRead More standard" name brand. Samsung is obviously know for their electronics, I don't know if they are actually manufacturing their LED's or using somebody else's, but Samsung generally has good products. MiracleLED, unknown??? However I did a quick search on both. Samsung: 10.8 watts, 810 lumens, 27,000k, 15,000 hrs, 130 degree beam angle. MiracleLED: 5 watts, 500 lumens, 27,000k, 30,000 hrs, they claim "360 degree lighting" but do not list an actual beam angle, but it would certainly be much greater then the 130 on the Samsung. I would look at application first. Can you see the bulb in the fixture you are putting it in? If so the Samsung's heat sink is very visible and if it were in a glass fixture that I could clearly see the bulb I wouldn't want to see the Samsung bulb, I would pick the MiracleLED even though just by first appearance the Samsung looks like it is made better. I think the only application I would use the Samsung would be in a can light as the light output is more directional especially if I needed more light as the Samsung puts out 60% more light. Both seem to be priced at about $16 each. The more recognized LED name brands are Cree & Nochia, also, GE, Phillips & Sylvania make them as well. I like the "Cree 60W equivalent soft white (2700K) A19 dimmable LED light bulb", sold at Home Depot & Lowes.

don't expect employers to call you back. most managers are busy and they can forget things. callRead More them a few days after the interview. good news is their are jobs... if you want to work retail for 8 bucks/hour. who can live on that? hard to not take it personally. I applied for a driver at pizza hut... was turned down via email, no meeting, no interview... I have lots of work experience, no criminal record, no accidents or points... no drug issues... how can they turn me down based on a resume and email? my age I'm guessing.

Jamie, I completely support spending tax payer dollars on audits! It is a small price to pay toRead More ensure that the Americans are not getting robbed via acts of fraud. I work in government, at the state level. I personally know of fraudulent hiring practices that have occurred within our agency, including someone stacking the deck by having two family members of a job applicant seated on a job interview panel. That is blatant corruption. Thank God for "snitches"! Such corruption is even more likely where profit is involved, thus the reported misuse of H1b visas. Audits to prevent fraud and corruption are needed. Yes, they cost, but in the long run, it is money well spent.
