      Thanks to some hard work from @Emblazon, the themes should all be functioning as expected again, with some enhancements/cleanups that he's put in. Please let us know if you spot anything that still seems to be amiss so that we can take care of it.

  1. DirecTV Now

    I didn't have HBO before, but got it as part of this loyalty offer. They have a FAQ on their site saying it will be a $5 bill credit for the next 12 months. If you prepaid 3 months, the 12 months start after the prepaid period is over.
  2. When you log in to a service (say gmail) and they text you a code before gaining access. This, in theory, would need you to have a device on you that has already been authenticated on to verify it is you.
  3. You know what, I wonder if they actually did do this. If they had the foresight to take out insurance on the original actors, this should have been thought of as well. At least I'm hoping lol. Definitely could make the CGI more convincing, especially if they had her speak to get lip movement down.
  4. DirecTV Now

    Current Version. Gen 4 AppleTV and second gen FireTV Stick.
  5. Would like to see the full un-edited version. Those could have been completely separate topics of discussion (where he says something about voter fraud & bussing people around). For all we know, he could be talking about running a service that will bring people to their respective polling place to vote not that they are bringing the same people to multiple polling places to cast multiple votes.
  6. It's not so much the negotiation/transparency of how much they will offer. It's about the practice of companies asking how much you currently make, so they can base their offer off of that. Say, the company (HR/hiring manager) have a salary range of 55-65K per year for a certain position. During the interview or even on the application they ask current salary (without ever mentioning what their range is for the position). If someone answers 30K, there would be some people who would jump at an offer of 50K. Even if a person has done research on what a typical position pays via payscale.com (since it could be reasonable that some companies pay on the lower end and 50K is closer to the average). Essentially, the company saved itself 5-15K because of what they made previously even though that should have no bearing on what they are worth and what presumably others are being paid.
  7. Good to know. A local article I read mentioned that specifically being in the bill...so if it's national policy, I wonder why they put it in the state bill (unless the article was wrong).
  8. Also prohibits company policies against employees talking about their salaries with each other.
  9. Brought to you by the police department that target practice using mug shots of black men: http://www.cbsnews.com/news/mug-shots-in-target-practice-spur-sniper-training-suspension/
  10. Sniper loose in Dallas

    This is actually a very well written article: http://www.redstate.com/leon_h_wolf/2016/07/08/uncomfortable-reason-came-dallas-yesterday/
  11. Wait so every year it's a moving goal post to basically make sure the party gets who it wants in? Our political system is such a joke. LOL.
  12. Wouldn't the more likely outcome be that walmart will undercut the second company in prices, driving them out of business and then leaving pay at a paltry $3/hour? Essentially that is what happened with Mom and Pop shops. Mom and Pop shops are more likely to have empathy towards their community and paying good wages. In comes walmart, undercuts the pricing and makes the small store close up shop. Mega corporations DO NOT CARE about the well being of their community. Only that of their profits and shareholders. Also, there's this: http://gawker.com/business-execs-support-progressive-policies-but-the-ch-1768898477 A poll done by a conservative polling group for the Chamber of Commerce is giving instructions on HOW TO IGNORE that 80% of business execs are in favor of raising minimum wage. They want to do it, just not be the first/only one to do it because they will get undercut by competition who does not (AKA my point above).
