Should IT Professionals Be Exempt From Overtime Regulations?

BonThomme Re:No (545 comments)

and no doubt they can paradoxically point to that paragraph, and say, "See? There's such a shortage of these guys we had to exempt them from overtime, or they'd bankrupt the economy!"

In learning guitar, or anything orthogonal to your wheelhouse, you will use parts of your brain that are atrophying, and get smarter at everything in the process. The don't call them renaissance men for nothing. Specialization is for insects.

Obama ends Patriot Act
Some minor or major terrorist incident happens

Repeat that last step for the next 8 years, at least

Microsoft On US Immigration: It's Our Way Or the Canadian Highway

BonThomme Re:Fine! (365 comments)

oh bullshit.

-bullshit, if your school doesn't have differentiated curriculum, it sucks, not common core
-bullshit, exploring how math concepts evolved is not that same as "going back to"; "showing your work" has been a part of education forever
-bullshit, the only people introducing politics are ones like you (who tend to introduce politics or religion into anything they don't like or understand)
-epic bullshit, doesn't merit a response
-bullshit, the Texas school board does this

I lived through New Math decades ago enduring binary, octal, and hexadecimal in 3rd grade, so I have every right to be skeptical of CC. I find it a vast improvement over what was there, but I recognize the consternation of parents who suddenly realize their snowflakes aren't quite so precious.
