Tipping is fucking awful. If you were to explicitly pay your employees in the way tippers do it would be illegal:
- women servers paid more than men (particularly young, conventionally attractive women)
- white servers paid more than minorities
- tall servers more than short servers
- extra pay for physical contact/flirting
Still, that's the system we have. If you don't tip it just makes you a cheap asshole.
I don't have a problem with someone who wants to be an artist, or of someone getting an expensive degree in art providing that they (or their families) can afford it and that's what they want to spend their money on. But borrowing medical school/law school money to get such a degree makes no sense and we shouldn't support it. Artists don't make doctor/lawyer money.
Women need to behave in masculine ways in order to be seen as competent—but women are expected to be feminine. So women find themselves walking a tightrope between being seen as too feminine to be competent, and too masculine to be likable.
Complete bullshit. I've been in STEM for my entire career. I don't look at male or female coworkers as potential mates or sexual beings. Corporations are sexless work environments and have been since at least the 1990s. In any professional environment you are expected to keep your personal life separate from your professional life.
I think it varies a lot by workplace. There are some startups where the entire company culture is set by the 20-something male founders and frat-type antics are de rigueur; lots of partying, weekend road trips to Tahoe, etc. A woman would probably have trouble fitting in at such a place, as would most men over the age of, say, 35 or anyone with a family. My employer (largest tech employer in San Francisco) is, I really think, extremely friendly to female employees; on my current team of ten exactly five are women for example.
I think the Republican will actually put a hit out on Trump if he's still leading next spring. Not figuratively. He's probably the only candidate who could damage their brand even further at this point
Deleted several posts about national politics, The Donald, etc. which had nothing to do with the O.P.
The reason I gave money to a Republican in this particular case is that he is running against an incumbent commonwealth attorney who prosecuted a man whom she knew (or ought to have known) was innocent, and worked to suppress or withhold evidence which proved that he was telling the truth and his accuser was lying. Tracci doesn't sound like a perfect choice, in the past he's bloviated about Benghazi and other standard-issue republican canards but that doesn't prove he won't be able to function competently as a prosecutor. Unlike the incumbent who's proven that she can't do the job (in fact, she's a menace to Justice). If the new guy turns out to be no good as well then they can replace him next election too; that's how it goes.
Good movie overall. Hardy was barely tolerable as max, but Theron was magnificent as were most of the other characters. Ending felt like a bit of a let down in contrast to the epic final scenes of Road Warrior and Beyond Thunderdome.
That's pretty interesting. Can you please provide a direct link or reference showing that Austrians envision selling Corvettes profitably to an isolated tribe on a Pacific Island?
The Austrian cultists "Reality" and indigenous didn't challenge it because they believe innovation creates demand. This dogmatic nonsense can be extended to the example I gave above.
They wont talk about it because they don't acknowledge the need for customers. Customers are assumed to be ever present with unlimited resources.
Its not really that complicated though, is it? The island dictator/oligarch and his family will each buy a whole fleet of cars so that they can cruise their dominion in style. They also will probably frequently crash because they will be drunk. There's your demand.
in 2009-2010 82% of CS Bachelor's degree graduates were men, and by ethnicity only 5.3% hispanic, 3.4% african american. For Master's degree in CS its 79% male, only 1.3% black, 1.8% hispanic. I'm not saying there isn't any gender or race discrimination anywhere in tech, but it really looks to me like Google is just hiring the people they can get.
