The last couple of weeks have been rough, but I now have a payment plan with the IRS and Child Support which means I can figure out a budget using what I have to work with (income) and what my monthly bills are (expenses)
Of course, I haven’t yet worked something out with student loans, and I have nothing left for gas to get to work, or food, propane, telephone, or even beer for those “unwind” moments listening to the blues and classic rock and willie and waylon.
Which means I need to figure out how to make an additional $250 per week on the side and come up with about $2,500 that I need for a down payment so that I can get my land back, pay the deposit and first months rent on the cabin and the deposit on the electricity.
Basically, at this point I want to at least get back to the level I was at in this video.
It would be nice to have an additional $12,000 to get running water and sewer, but at this point, that is a luxury that I can’t afford.
On CNBC this morning, they are talking about how netflix is having problems with people sharing their account.
To be honest, I liked the service netflix provided and I was seriously considering renewing it once I got back to work washing dishes in June.
Until I read this:
My guess is that Fwd.us won’t be sending Dalgaard to more panels anytime soon either. But his attitude typifies what I’ve observed among tech CEOs: an arrogance, a sense of entitlement, even a Messiah Complex. Not to mention a completely uncaring attitude. I’ve mentioned before an incident some years ago when I was chatting with Netflix founder and CEO Reed Hastings. When I mentioned that H-1B has caused major harm to older American tech workers, not just financial but also emotional, with divorces and even some suicides, he sarcastically replied, “Maybe they beat their wives too.” Bill Gates looks good in comparison.
A shortage of qualified IT talent challenges CIOs trying to respond to the tech demands of business.
Fifty-nine percent of CIOs and other IT executives face a skills shortage, according to a survey released Tuesday by Harvey Nash Group and KPMG LLP. Closer to home, more than 20% of technology executives said they are actively looking for new jobs. The report polled 3,691 technology leaders worldwide.
The skills shortage comes as changes in technology continue to outpace technology education. Hardest to find are professionals with experience in analytics, change management and app development — key skills for transforming companies to better compete in digital business, said Bob Miano, president and CEO of professional recruiting firm Harvey Nash USA.
“If you’re going to be a surviving company, you have to get those skills somehow,” Mr. Miano said.
Interesting, I’ve been doing deep dives into data since the 1980’s when I first realized what data meant in the days of dBase II.
If anything, with all of the work I’ve done here at K.A.A.W since I founded it in 2007, my skills have gotten substantially better after having analyzed data from the majority of the government agencies.
Yet, like many, many others my age (57), I can’t buy an interview.
Which is why I don’t buy smoke and mirrors anymore which is what I consider this report.
Dave King was fired — IBM calls it “resource action” — from the Dubuque services center about a year ago. The 62-year-old father of three is now driving a school bus 20 hours a week. He failed to find another technical job.
Meanwhile, in the game of smoke and mirrors that IBM plays with the lives of Americans at stake, let’s see what applications for temporary workers on temporary visas have been filed by this sorry ??? company.
This is IBM Corporation
This is IBM Global Systems
This is IBM India Limited
This is IBM India Private
I no longer have any respect for IBM at all.
Senator Grassley, as far as I am concerned, you can revoke their corporate charter and export the company and all of its executives to North Korea or Iran.
Myself, I quit shopping there several years ago when I realized that cheap communist china crap was why we were unemployed.
The retail giant posted fiscal 2016 first-quarter earnings of $1.03 per share, down from $1.10 a share in the year-earlier period. The retailer said currency negatively impacted earnings by about 3 cents a share.
Revenue slipped to $114.83 billion from $114.96 billion a year ago.
Analysts expected Wal-Mart to post quarterly earnings of $1.04 per share on $116.21 billion in revenue, according to a consensus estimate from Thomson Reuters.
Folks, this is Texas and not too many decades ago, we would have treated this company like a cattle rustler.
Infosys needs time for the transition, and Fossil employees have extra work to do: train their Indian replacements.
Infosys calls these “knowledge transfer sessions,” and they’ll be videotaped and used to train Infosys workers in India, China, the Philippines and the Czech Republic. Robben said those outposts would handle the majority of Fossil’s technical support. Infosys will also station workers at Fossil locations.
Especially when these companies are destroying the lives of Americans in America.
Don’t believe that is happening.
Here is my own personal lifetime earnings and I’ve worked in that industry all of my life.
Trust me, what I’ve been through is not uncommon and it happens because we are remaining silent on the subject.
Well, no more.
It is time for us to hit them in their pocketbook and make it impossible for them to sell their products in America.
Many of you are thinking that won’t make a difference.
As you can see, the majority of their revenue comes from America.
It is time for Americans in America to boycott the Fossil Group, wouldn’t you say?
