Yakkstr

Man vs Machine

"Since the recession ended, businesses had increased their real spending on equipment and software by a strong 26%, while they have added almost nothing to their payrolls.

In August, new orders and shipments of “capex goods” — defined as nondefense capital goods excluding aircraft — increased by 1.1% and 2.8%, respectively. In the same month, private payrolls (adjusted for the Verizon strike) edged up a mere 62,000.

For all the talk of uncertainty, the increase in orders is a sign that companies are optimistic about the future. After all, no executive would expand production facilities if he or she thought customer demand was about to stagnate."

Ugh....done
yeah, i feel the same a bit. One of the things I'm thinking about is making it more of a .... permanent discussion on topics. I.e. rather than talking about global warming for the 100th time, there is one organized and structured discussion of that topic read the rest

it is justice. but my question is how often this happens when there is no camera recording it. If this video didn't exist, you would insist that this "thug" tried to kill the cop, that the cop was scared for his life, and that this was justified. read the rest
