More weight was given to reviews written within the past year, and chains with more than 10 locations were excluded.[...

Yes, Denton is fairly liberal compared to the rest of Texas but it's not exactly San Fran east. The city has a long history of weird rules. I remember the chamber of commerce fighting the city over sign ordinances in the 90's. Ordinances the citizens voted overwhelmingly in favor of. Anyway it...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

One of my favorites. If we're throwing in eps. 4-6 of Star Wars then it ranks right behind those. BR is the still the most visually stunning film I've seen. The story raises a lot of questions about meaning and value of life. It's just a monumental film IMO. Funny, the first time I saw it ...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

Another one near Dallas today. There was a 4.0+ that we felt at the office a couple of weeks ago. Centered in Johnson county (heavy rig activity). Anyway, it was the largest recorded in North Texas and felt "different" than the others. More like a rolling rumble instead of the "thud" of th...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)

BB is letting 3,000 staff go. Only 3,900 work there. Many of the remaining 900 are getting pay cuts that will mean more proxy layoffs. It does appear to be a systemic issue at their plants. They'll be back but not for a while. And not with the same distribution. They are an institution, in ...

Yeah, it matters. Don't let anyone tell you otherwise. They're a lot more common now, so the immediate value to your career is not what it used to be. But as long as you don't ring up a ton of debt its a great decision in the long run and opens doors. You average Hr director filters through...Jump to Post - View Topic - Replies (0)
