@heresthecasey: what was the outing where they had the tables out in your pics?
I read the comments (usually full of negative and trolls), but many of them seemed to be in support of the proposal (except for one or two). I hope this becomes a reality. I would surely consider Chicago for college.
I sincerely hope that you would consider Chicago for college regardless if they have high speed rail from Columbus. There are a couple good schools up there that don’t require high speed rail to get to.
I’ve never worked somewhere where they paid for outside schooling (I did get the MBA essentially for free by working as a graduate assistant at the school). Is there a provision where if you leave within, say, 2 years (or do something to get fired) that you end up owing the company tuition costs?
It is usually tied to something (depends on the firm); it isn’t an altruism deal.
Ohio Stadium could not be used for the opening and closing ceremonies without major renovations. I have a feeling that bleacher seating is not what the IOC would be looking for. We would need to build another stadium somewhere in the 9 figure range that we wouldn’t use for anything after the olympics was over.
I don’t find it worthwhile to even spend the money on a bid to the IOC; however, with that said, the Coliseum in LA (where USC plays) was used for the games (including opening and closing ceremonies), so I don’t see why Ohio Stadium couldn’t be usedJuly 13, 2012 11:15 pm at 11:15 pm in reply to: Ohio will not establish state-run health insurance exchange #504215
There’s some bureaucratic problems as well.
Oh I don’t disagree there are some bureaucracy/political motivations involved; however this is also a great deal of economic efficiency involved that can be seen if we can step back from the immediate cynicism that always seems to surround politics (of which I am often guilty too).July 12, 2012 8:30 pm at 8:30 pm in reply to: Ohio will not establish state-run health insurance exchange #504213
Without taking a stance on the merits of the bill one way or the other, at this point, I believe that the republican party thinks the bill will be repealed in the not-too-distant future, so it would essentially be a waste of money to set up the exchange at this point (especially for a republican administration that believes repeal is inevitable). When and if it appears that the law is going to stay on the books, a state exchange would probably be set up. Just my two cents.
I would definitely need a little extra pay because I would constantly need to buy new underwear.
Just finished Altered Carbon by Richard K. Morgan. Pretty decent; if you enjoy cyberpunk and/or sci-fi, you will enjoy this.
The OP has the best job title I have ever seen.
Got some tacos, burrito and quesadilla for dinner!
Good lord, that looks tasty.
I think this is brought up in the KLD thread.
It’s hard to blame a big corporation for the work of one (or a few) person in the advertising department.
We mustn’t forget, corporations are people :) So it is not confused, only having fun at this point.
Maybe I’m late to the party but I actually found this kind of funny. If I would have seen that coaster I would have laughed. I didn’t even put it together that it was a Candle Lab (ish) design. In fact, I hadn’t even heard of Candle Lab until you guys made a stink. Where’s the humility? Be honest with yourselves, you’re a small-town business with a VERY VERY VERY simple logo that is easily re-created either on purpose or not. My hunch is whoever photoshopped this owns a candle from you on his/her desk and used it to quickly make something up. So now you’re taking what could be a fun and goofy way to promote your brand and crying foul. Well, that leaves a bad taste in my mouth. -1 Karma point for Candle Lab
I don’t think its the use of the logo so much as combining the logo with the premise that the candles smell like tires burning. That’s the issue (at least, I think).May 4, 2012 1:58 am at 1:58 am in reply to: My Morning Jacket / Band of Horses at The LC – August 12, 2012 #495001
