If they are from before 12/31/2010, then yes.
Because it's really supernatural gas. You're burning the ghosts of dead dinosaurs!!!!
Then you work for the wrong companies (or in the wrong industry entirely). I'm also an above average performer in my skill areas and if someone followed me around tracking everything I did, it would look like I'm slacking too, but my employer doesn't do that. They leave me alone to work or use my time as I see fit with the understanding that I get the things done that I need to and that I'll be there prepared & on time when I need to be. Unless an employee consistently logs less than 40hrs, they'll only start looking at charged vs logged time and how someone uses their computers if they aren't performing and that's mostly just in the worst cases to help identify what people can do to improve. The company can and will eventually use misuse of resources, tardiness or mis-logged time as cause to fire someone if they ignore their manager and continue to not produce at a reasonable level, but in that case they should be fired.
That's the kind of bullshit that causes companies to implement these Orwellian surveillance and control mechanisms.
You're right that hours on the job aren't what matter to the bottom line for the company, but in many cases it is extremely difficult or impossible to create a fair performance based compensation scheme that doesn't cause conflicts of interest. All you're doing by trying to get away with the minimum instead of just doing your job, is promoting greater levels of tracking and control to ensure that lazy bastards like you stay on task and generate some value in return for pay. If it wasn't for you and those like you, the rest of us could establish a relationship based on mutual trust with our employers that benefits all with greater flexibility and minimal restrictions.
The real challenge is setting the difficulty to Easy and trying to lose.
I was okay with binge-on since it was no cost and offered benefits for both the wireless subscriber and T-Mobile. This is crossing the line whether it's about net neutrality or just value go the customer.
At least they aren't killing the grandfathered unlimited plans
It really is like your personal budgeting, except access to loans is quite a bit easier.
What Tesla is doing is borrowing money to invest in product development and increased production capacity. It looks like a loss on the books because they are currently spending more money on expansion than they are selling in product. But this occurs fairly frequently in healthy rapid growth companies where demand for their product greatly exceeds their ability to supply it. The idea is that as the production rates grow, the revenues will eventually overtake the investment costs and will ultimately generate similar or larger returns faster than by limiting growth to what can be achieved solely by reinvesting profits.
There is a vehicle in the works that will sell new for well under $10k: The Elio
It's anticipated base price is $6800, gets 84mpg hwy and has power door lock & AC/heat standard. They are currently building 23 engineering units for validation testing (safety, handling, ABS & PCM calibration, etc.) and plan to start full scale production in the second half of 2017.
That's as much a choice as someone coming up and saying "would you like to get hit with a hammer or a baseball bat?"
Both "choices" cause harm and there should be an obligation for the perpetrator of such a crime to make the victim whole.
That may be true, but the federal government doesn't see it that way. They all but banned one for private ownership and the other is available for immediate purchase without registration.
I think the useless term you're looking for is "assault weapon", which is essentially just a scary looking semi-auto rifle. And I'd call the Ruger mini 14 a semi-auto varmint/target rifle. At 5.56mm it's not really powerful enough for larger game, so I wouldn't consider it to be a hunting rifle.
An Assault Rifle has a large capacity magazine (often >25 rounds) and an automatic and/or burst fire mode. Hunting rifles are either bolt action or semi-auto and usually have smaller magazine capacities (1-5) and are often chambered for larger calibers.
Verizon waive overage charges!? Ha, that's a good one.
Put not your trust in money, but put your money in trust.
