It's all about the ratio. The following story highlights an example of someone trying to address it:http://www.nytimes.com/2015/04/14/business/owner-of-gravity-payments-a-credit-card-processor-is-setting-a-new-minimum-wage-70000-a-year.html?_r=0The CEO dropped from $1m salary and allocated a large portion of the company profits to give his 120 employees who were making 1/20th that amount a minimum $70k salary. Their salaries didn't sound too bad to begin with but it...
Do you have a USB enclosure to run the SSD from? If not, you can try formatting the drive as a format common to both Mac and Windows like MS-DOS on the Windows machine and see if it shows up in Disk Utility. If you open the command-line when booted from the 10.5.6 installer, try entering the following command and hit return:diskutil listand see if that lists the drive. You can also use:dfsystem_profilerThe last one will show all hardware so you can see if the drive is...
And when you see Karl Lagerfeld: I bet his watch can't do this though:He should have waited for version 2. That's when they add the lasers.
Here are some figures on poverty:http://www.washingtonpost.com/local/poverty-rates-higher-for-blacks-and-hispanics-than-whites-and-asians/2013/02/20/401e6a6e-7b78-11e2-9a75-dab0201670da_story.htmlIt's not just some poor people who are white, it's a significant percentage. Hispanic and Black are about 2.5x more in number of poor people than White and Asian but how can 10% just have avoided all the free privilege and are Asians getting the same privilege? There's some...
They don't crack you up and bring the house down? It seems like they would but people are probably divided over it.
Sometimes the stainless steel one looks gold when it's held above a bright yellow table. See the picture here at the top: http://forums.appleinsider.com/t/185785/15m-americans-say-theyll-buy-an-apple-watch-reuters-poll-finds The one on Karl looks silver nearer the cuff of his shirt. It certainly looks mostly gold but did they officially say it was all gold or is this all based on that one image? It looks like he tried a gold one on before but with a sport band:
It looks like Pearson was mostly to blame not the iPads themselves. This seems to be what they were offering: http://www.scpr.org/news/2015/04/15/51027/lausd-ipad-program-ditching-pearson-software-reque/ "Holmquist said the district is "extremely dissatisfied" with the work of Pearson on its technology initiative to get computers into the hands of each of the district's 650,000 students. "As we approach the end of the school year, the vast majority of students are...

I don't recall proposing either of those things nor whatever the 'rather than' comparison option would be. I was merely offering a suggestion as to why wealth has a negative association. No one would be surprised that greed has a negative association but there's confusion about the accumulation of excess wealth having a negative association.The product is all about style. The gold one looks much nicer than the lower ones. These cost $350, $750 and $17,000 respectively.The...
What people need can be determined quite easily by anyone by assessing their lifestyle. People of a certain body size only need a certain amount of food and water intake per day. A family only needs a single home. What people want is a different thing entirely. Nobody needs a gold watch (or a watch at all), it's a luxury.Determining greed is done by weighing up how excessive the difference is between how much is needed and how much is taken or owned. It's also relative, if...
