re: ITER Global Fusion Energy Project: After a Decade of Design and Fabrication, World’s Most - lostinbr
ITER is pretty interesting. It will either go down as possibly the most important experiment in human history, or it will be a $50+ billion boondoggle....

[quote]You should never cruise in the left lane and you are wrong if you do in every scenario - whether you are driving 50 MPH or 100 MPH. But you don't have to be speeding to be impeded by slow traffic in the left lane.[/quote] This is fine in a vacuum, but the reality is a little more nuanced IMO...

re: iPhone--12 or 12Pro? - lostinbr
If you take a lot of travel pics the 12 Pro might be worth it, since it has the telephoto lens. The regular 12 only has the “standard” and wide lenses. I just upgraded an opted for the regular 12 because I don’t take a ton of camera pictures. That seems to be the biggest difference as far as I c...

re: What Invention Is Responsible For The Rapid Evolution In Technology? - lostinbr
I see some comments to the effect of “technology advanced very slowly before [insert event].” I don’t think those comments are wrong, but I do think they point to the flaw in the question. Our technological development has been exponential, for the most part. Which is why you can point to so many in...

re: Garyville's 160 yr old San Francisco Plantation to shut down & funding will cease - lostinbr
When I said “I thought the same thing” I was referring to the size and location of the lot.. not the age of the picture. It’s obviously from the 70’s. :lol:...

[quote]Is that picture from the 70s? Marathon has tanks, pipe racks, and conveyors surrounding that plantation now. Plus its really not much land. They could put one tank on the plantation property. Marathon has plenty land to expand anyway. [/quote] Yeah, I thought the same thing.. at most they co...

re: Colorado: If you don’t disclose job opening expected salary….. - lostinbr
[quote]Some companies have resorted to removing college information from resumes, as there are biases towards schools. Harvard versus LSU versus Princeton versus Yale versus Southern... Pick 3 to bring in. They're trying creative ways to remove biases on people. I got into Duke on a half scholars...

[quote]And by passing a law preventing that, it evens the playing field. Which isn't a bad thing unless you're an a-hole who thinks someone should get a higher salary because they are more "likeable" [/quote] Holy shite. You really are all-in on this aren’t you? :lol: So let’s say I buy a restau...

[quote]Name a potential employee that would be opposed to knowing a salary band going into an interview.

[quote]I'm sorry that you feel like knowing a base salary up front is entitlement[/quote] [quote]I have. But the response is usually "we don't disclose that information without an interview".

re: Colorado: If you don’t disclose job opening expected salary….. - lostinbr
[quote]It's a waste of everyone's time if there isn't at least some sort of understanding of expected pay for a potential position. A friend of mine interviewed for a job that has a national average of ~75k (state average is roughly the same), when they got down to discussing pay, the hospital w...

[quote]Why not sell it and profit?[/quote] Probably the same reason it was purchased in the first place - they need the land. The refinery was built on the former plantation grounds. The plantation house itself was designated a National Historic Landmark while the refinery was under construction in...
