Speaking of getting older and getting screwed by Cons.

Republican health care bill raises premiums for older, poor Americans by more than 750%

Sure hope all those assholes in the rust belt understand now just what they voted for.

According to Department of Homeland Security data reviewed by NBC, the count of cellphone searches by border officers grew from less than 5,000 in 2015 to almost 25,000 in 2016. Agents searched 5,000 devices in February alone, the department reported.

What do you imagine it will be for 2017? The police state is growing.

$23 million for failing. Boggles the fucking mind.


Several forces are conspiring to ensure that many Americans have to work well past the traditional retirement age of 65. People are living longer, their retirement savings are inadequate, and Social Security reforms are almost certainly going to require it. The San Francisco Fed says that the share of the older-65 working population is projected to rise sharply — from about 19 percent now to 29 percent in the year 2060.

Yet, another reason jobs need to come back from overseas. And yes, you should always lie about your age in order to get your foot in the door.

Technically games have always been rentals. I'm fine with that so long as they don't expect me to pony up full price for 99.9% of them.

There is a 7 day free trial so I'll give it a whirl at some point if only to check out Teh Last of Us and RDR one more time. They're not really forthcoming with any pertinent info. Doesn't mention bandwith requirements anywhere - so I searched and it's 5mbps min, tho most peole seem to think you need a lot more than that. And it doesn't state if the prices $20 per month/$45 for 3/$100 for 12 is in Freedom dollars or not.

I don't vandalize. I voted. You? Oh wait, nvm, eh.

Wow, so you voted...at least once in your life. Well aren't you just the paragon to hold up and how people how to make democracy function. The effort of going out to vote once every 4 years must be utterly draining.

At current reproduction rates the planet is going to see another 10 billion people on it in the next 30 years. What do you think is going to happen at that point when most of them are unemployed, hungry, and angry? Glad I won't be around for it.

Somebody to scale has had to say that over generationaly since the dawn of time. Showing age.

So several billion more people in the span of 3 decades won't lead to any forseeable problems. You seriously need to lay off the drugs. Rolleyes

Typical self-entitled brats. I'll bet nary a one of them even voted, much less actually put in any real work to change the system. No, it's far easier to bitch and vandalize other peoples stuff you disagree with.

That's right because keyboard warriors are the true game changers.

But I do agree that vandalizing property does no good and can only harm the employees if the business suffers. Better to spend that time and energy educating others.

You're the one constantly pissing and moaning about Trump but what are you actually DOING about it besides pissing and moaning. Did you even bother to vote? Ever volunteered for a campaign? Started a petition? A movement? Done anything except piss and moan? There are plenty of people actually DOING stuff about it, Bob. Besides throwing tantrums and vandalizing things. Try it sometime.

Here's the flipside to your own bullshit.

I'm a college educated Canadian. I've been on the job hunt for a few months now - again - same as every other year or so. Only this time around I can no longer get a callback. It's not a lack of job postings or a lack of effort either. I'm honestly starting to think there's something broken in the system that doesn't connect people effectively anymore. You can't accept a job that doesn't get offered to you. Do HR people google / facebook first then consider looking at a resume second now?

And NO I'm not waiting on some kind of ideal career. I'm just looking to pay the bills. At this point I'm honestly considering putting groceries on shelves again. Same as I did as a teenager. Only now I'm 40 and graduated college twice in both French and English - which makes me look like a risky hire who won't stick around a minimum wage job. But all it's ever gotten me is a heavier plate with a side of ass kissing for the same pay as some slacker who barely got through high school.

You're right there's plenty of great jobs in trades. From a family of tradespeople too - all about lumber. But do you remember the message we all got in the early 90s? Technology, technology TECHNOLOGY!!!!

And then what happened in the early 2000s? Oh geez, the IT bubble burst. Well why the hell did you study technology dumbass? Trades are the future. What? You thought you were too good to get your hands dirty? Just because absolutely everyone around you, family, society, economy all pushed towards a different direction?

At least millenials are getting a straight answer instead of incessant bullshit. It might suck to hear but at least they're not being blamed for having followed the path presented to them.

Either way, our future is fucked.

Right, and I studied history at U of T and ended up a bartender most of my life. That's what happens to most people who aren't STEM. Yeah, I took a 10 year sidetrack in IT...until it bottomed out. Then I went back to the bar biz. That's how life works for most people. The days of a lifetime job with a company was already ending with my parents generation. Adults adjust and go do something else. They don't sit around pissing and moaning that life isn't unfolding the way they feel it should. Man up and learn to do something different. How many years have you wasted now? You could have been a fucking tradesman already for the amount of time you've wasted hoping for some cushy office job. So yeah, again, not bullshit, it's still a problem of your own making.

Edot: Even more. Where exactly are you applying for jobs? Just Toronto? Some of the other major cities? If I offered you a job tomorrow in North Bay, or Saskatoon, or in the NWT, Yukon or Labrador, would you go? I'd bet dollars to donuts that the vast majority of millenials wouldn't even consider doing something like that.

American job losses, particularly in manufacturing, are a hot-button topic now. President Donald Trump has focused on employment exoduses to low-cost countries like Mexico, and he vows to reverse that trend. But automation is easily as big a culprit here.

I keep hearing media say this but it flies in the face of the facts that over a million jobs have gone from the US to Mexico. Here's the reality of it....

NAFTA at 20: One Million U.S. Jobs Lost, Higher Income Inequality

I'm also sick of these bullshit millenial articles when they only really apply to a tiny group of people who live in a major city where everything is fiercely competitive and expensive. There's plenty of other work to be had in all kinds of places, but no, they don't want to move to those places. There's plenty of good paying work in the trades but no that's hard work. This is entirely an issue of their own making. I come from a family of tradesmen. My nephews and their buddies never lack for work, make great money, own their own house, truck, tools, yada yada yada. Listen up kids, the world owes you nothing. Work sucks. That's why it's called work and not 'super happy fun time'.

The Jacquard commuter jacket is a dark, dark denim piece of clothing that contains a screenless, practically invisible fabric touch interface on the left wrist. That surface allows the wearer to control certain actions on their smartphone while wearing and engaging the jacket.

Smartwatches Part Deux. Again, there's zero need for something like this when just handling your phone directly is far, far easier.

This includes predictions such that 4TB of data per day per vehicle will be generated, which is going to require planning in infrastructure. Intel’s expertise in elements such as the RealSense technology and high-performance general compute will be an interesting match to Mobileye’s portfolio.

Wtf would an average vehicle on an average day be generating 4TB of data? Nevermind 4TB that needs to be shared.
