Jesse Jackson: Tech Diversity Is Next Civil Rights Step

Sarius64 Re:He just doesent' get it.. (398 comments)

One of my best friends is American-born of Indian ethnicity and his parents immigrated legally way before there were H1B Visas. Last I heard he was the lead developer for a $600 million project. He certainly didn't get position through AA.

Lawrence Krauss: Congress Is Trying To Defund Scientists At Energy Department

Sarius64 Re:Didn't you Know? (292 comments)

These scientist need to understand that the people writing the checks get to make the priorities. If they don't like it, get elected and change it or find someone with money that agrees with them. Being a "Scientist" does not mean you have some moral superiority over others concerning what tax dollars are spent on.

Really? This is a troll? Grow up you moderation weenies.

Lawrence Krauss: Congress Is Trying To Defund Scientists At Energy Department

Sarius64 Re:Good (292 comments)

"Public" utilities (read political payoffs to politicians) will never allow fusion. Too efficient.

Sarius64 Re:Price of using scientists as political pawns (292 comments)

Boo hoo. Start your own network. It wouldn't be hard to do better with ratings with literally anyone but Fox. But it's easier to whine, eh?

I thought scientists were noble people that worked for free, only ate garbage thrown out by Republicans and always told the truth. No?

The Daily Harassment of Women In the Game Industry

Sarius64 Re:Pft (962 comments)

You should read your citations better. It says people with staff-inmate relations (which are a federal felony Deterring Staff Sexual Abuse of Federal Inmates) don't consider them wrong. Much like teenagers, I'm sure that inmates aren't in a position of authority and cannot legally consent to assigned guardians.

The Daily Harassment of Women In the Game Industry

Sarius64 Re:Pft (962 comments)

I hear you, but this makes no sense. Why would anyone feel threatened a women could do a job? Statistically, I'm more worried about the H1B worker that magically sits at the office for 16 hours a day, violating every semblance of security protocols.

You have a point. It seems that word floats through ever pub I've visited in Cambridge as of late.

Where does one apply for this arbiter of culture and bigotry role?

The Daily Harassment of Women In the Game Industry

Sarius64 Re:The fine art of male bonding. (962 comments)

Then when you went to HR you should have documented the incident, asked if there was any professional advice they would like to document on the subject, and asked for a resolution on the spot from the HR lead. Then demand an entry be made into the employee's folder noting that she has refused to complete a rudimentary part of expected job performance and tried to cover the issue up by exploiting a performance demand with harassment. Amazingly, all of this can be accomplished with good demeanor.

The Daily Harassment of Women In the Game Industry

Sarius64 Re:Pft (962 comments)

I disagree. Even before Tailhook and all that other definitive stuff, if someone threatened a women in my work group they were looking for trouble. It's irrational to think that all men or women are reasonable. Drama queens excel on both sides of the fence but attacking/threatening/stalking a women is the line for my culture. We watched a sexual harassment video a few months back where some weirdo figured it was okay to sexually assault a woman. In the Navy, we have a Chief (1983ish) do that and damn near die from the beating he got from her co-workers response. This world in which it is okay to hurt women is not mine.

The Daily Harassment of Women In the Game Industry

Sarius64 Re:Pft (962 comments)

I'm always fascinated when I see comments like this. Threatening rape against one of my relatives (female or male) would be a fairly dangerous activity as the greater family take those threats to heart.

States That Raised Minimum Wage See No Slow-Down In Job Growth

Sarius64 Re:Local testing works? (778 comments)

Because they obviously do not work! People still steal because they believe the laws will not be enforced. Statistically, they are correct. I can count on one hand's fingers the number of employers in California this year that have been arrested for illegal labor. I offer you the same test I mentioned before. Please come to San Diego and I'd gladly display hundreds of employers blatantly breaking the labor laws for decades. After that, we'll go down to the SSA office where non-citizens are signing up for some apparent benefits daily by the thousands.

I invite you to come to San Diego any day of the week and test your theory. Good luck.

States That Raised Minimum Wage See No Slow-Down In Job Growth

Sarius64 Re:Local testing works? (778 comments)

We don't enforce employer penalties now. What makes you think that any new rules/penalties would change the system now? It's almost like saying that new guns laws will change the hearts and minds of criminals.

Australia Repeals Carbon Tax

Sarius64 Re:it is the wrong way... (291 comments)

Funny how paying the people back always seems to finance some politician's personal project. Unless I'm getting a check, it's not paying me back.
