The best way to boil eggs for taste and minimal to zero cracks/fractures: 1) bring eggs to roomRead More temperature 2) bring a large pot of salted water to boil 3) when water boils, turn off heat and lower eggs into water (a hand held mesh strainer is great) 4) put tight fitting lid on pot 5) set timer for 17 minutes **a cast iron pot is great because it will hold the heat for longer

They gloss over it and don't give you the pragmatic, dig the grave numbers up front. Those are, aRead More $30 billion dollar pension fund under-funding as a result of the politicians giving your money away to public sector employees who don't "give a sh*&" about you. Now it your turn to take it back and say no. Bankruptcy takes the hemming and hawing away from the politicians who have no real incentive to manage your money in the fiduciary responsibility they are supposed too. Yes, bankruptcy and we stop the bleeding and you get your city back

Card using enthusaists kind of deserve to have this happen to them. By using your cards everywhereRead More you go, do you realize you are taking a large chunk of the businesses profit and choosing to give it to banks and credit card processors rather than the business itself? You, by using your cards, also force businesses to raise prices. Stop using your cards and you won't have to worry about security breaches AND you help businesses AND you help yourself by allowing businesses to lower prices.
Don April 20, 2014 at 08:09 am
For all the years I've had debit cards, never used them. If you're somewhere where credit cards, aRead More check or cash in your pocket can't be used, you shouldn't be there. Besides, most of you forget about all those last minute withdrawals and Irresponsibility takes over, yet you're still surprised- "what happened my bank account?"- the drunken stupor in the bar, or knee jerk "i gotta have it". Most can't afford those approaches, and the service fees know that

I don't like debit cards either, it is a direct line to one's bank account. What I didn't like wasRead More my bank replacing my ATM card with a dual usage ATM/debit card without asking me...I made them cancel it and give me an ATM functionality card only. Some people don't have credit line established yet (like my college student son) and have no choice but to use a debit card instead of credit card. I take precautions and have it assigned to an isolated checking account, and urge son to monitor it closely (set up email alerts), good training for future financial independence.

So what you're saying william is that anyone who comes along and claims "PTSD",Read More "ABUSE", blah, blah blah should get a free pass? Why have laws then? The whole concept of making something a criminal act is that we want to discourage it from happening in the first place, by putting deterrents into effect. One such deterrent is PRISON, another is the Death Penalty. If this person was being abused, she had options BEFORE coming to this point - for whatever reason, she make a decision to kill someone, and a Jury of her peers determined her guilt. So off to jail she goes - hopefully FOREVER.

It is interesting how juries' decisions which greatly favor corporate defendants are not overriddenRead More by the courts and the courts do not issue Additurs. What the public does not realize that judges have the power to decimate a jury's decision and substitute their own whim or help their own buddies in the defense bar by issuing a Remittiturs, Judgments Notwithstanding the Verdict, or a new trial to drive up plaintiff's costs. Remittitur is Latin meaning the judge may reduce the award made by the jury if the judge favors the corporate defendant. Additur is Latin meaning the judge may increase the jury's award if the judge thinks the plaintiff's injuries merit more compensation. I've seen lots of Remittiturs, especially if the plaintiffs are minorities, but I have yet to see an actual Additur where the judge makes a corporation pay more. I assume there are some somewhere, but in 40 years, I've never seen one or know anyone who got an Additur. Judgment Notwithstanding the Judgment means that the judge completely overrules the jury. We saw this with Judge Connor at the downtown criminal courts when she reversed the jury verdict which convicted some of the cops in Ramparts Scandal. The scandal had resulted in the LAPD's operating under a Consent Decree with the US Justice Department for a decade. So we are to believe that the US Dept of Justice, the Christopher Commission that investigated the Ramparts Division, and the jury were all wrong, but Judge Connor, who had ties to officers involved in the Ramparts Scandals was right to issue her Judgment Notwithstanding the Verdict. So, Judge Marmaro thinks that he knows better than the jury. How many Additurs has Judge Marmaro issued? To have context for Judge Marmaro' extrasensory perception of the "truth," we need to know how often he discerns the need to increase the compensation to any injured party. Maybe Marmaro is the exception who overrides his juries to increase and decrease jury awards. If so, why have juries?

At least criminals have a REASON for killing the people they do. Cops regularly murder unarmed citizens, and are NEVER held accountable.
