re: More fallout for Target! - pngtiger
My gf works at a very busy target in a good part of town (temp job as we moved to this place for only a year). She's worked 7 days since this happened and every day it has been dead. All of these shifts have been during peak times normally. So, yeah, I'd say at least here it's because the general pu...

[quote]At this point I don't even think slavery was a thing. [/quote] That's a good idea, like the holocaust deniers. We can find some conspiracy nut job to start promoting that slavery was in fact all made up by Malcolm x or someone else way back. Haven't figured out the angle for why it would ...

re: Calling the OT Jewelers....diamond prices - pngtiger
I just paid $10k for a 1.6. Think it's about $7.5k per depending on the cut and all. The round will be more than the emerald or cushion because it goes against grains or something. Basically easier to cut the oblong shapes so get a nicer and bigger diamond for cheaper...

re: There's a new saying: "If it's broke, don't fix it" - pngtiger
Isn't it more like, "if it ain't broke, we'll say that it is so we can fix it, which makes it broke, so we can fix it"...

re: Racism in the medical profession - pngtiger
Yes There were a specific group in the now 4th year class, that did a lot of things during 3rd year to change how students are handled. They went to a new curriculum with that group, and gave them way too much weight on changes that may or may not have been needed. Like I get in trouble for jumpi...

re: The 2016 Physician Compensation Report is out - pngtiger
I'm not in California, in Alabama. Was wanting to hire a few of the good nurses from the hospital for my clinic, and asked them what the hospital paid them to see if I could afford it. I have many friends that are nurses that have told me, and know many that travel because the pay is sometimes as mu...
