  • If it's not perfect we should do nothing you're right. /S

    You want to address big problems? We need more Democrats in control of the Congress and executive branch. Republicans will always push us back untill their platform changes.

  • bUt BoTh SiDeS dA sAmE
  • It's actually quite crazy to see the amount of change Biden could get done even with out control of the legislative branch. Adding to that, the Republicans are in disarray too yet things still got done.

    I'm surprised OP didn't include the largest climate legislation in world history

    I want to see another country or region beat us, as this would be welcome competition.

  • bUt BoTh SiDeS dA sAmE
  • It's the infrastructure bill, not the climate change bill. Which, btw, Biden passed the largest climate change bill in world history but you just keep trying to convince people that Biden bad.

  • bUt BoTh SiDeS dA sAmE
  • Yeah it did help some people? It still continues to help a bunch of people and was change so impactful that now, Even republican voters don't want it repealed.

    Half measures is the only thing Democrats can pass with the limited power that they have. That didn't even have a full 2 years in control of the executive and legislative branch when the ACA was passed, with some Democrats being very conservative. the only way to get the law passed was by getting all members to agree, including the most conservative Members. The public option in particular was one of the things removed from the ACA because of conservative dissent.

  • bUt BoTh SiDeS dA sAmE
  • What happened to the public option that candidate Biden talked about so much?

    Pray tell, how would Biden get that passed with the current political setting?

    Biden is a president, not a king, he can't just deschedule marijuana unilaterally without causing problems, he needs Congress to help. Look at your answer to my first question to see how that gets done. Some info: https://www.hrw.org/news/2023/04/20/over-80-groups-urge-biden-administration-end-federal-prohibition-marijuana-and

    Our infrastructure is 10-15 years behind China and falling further behind.

    Again, look at your answer to my first question.

    It feels like you want Biden to fix everything, while completely unaware of how our government works. Which brings us to why people compare Trump to Biden, because people will have to vote for one or the other in the election. Is you want better and more extensive changes, vote for the Democrats that can only take baby steps at the moment. When they get more control on Congress, they can make bigger steps.

  • Shell urged to clarify climate targets as it braces for shareholder rebellion | NBIM, one of oil group’s largest investors, calls for ‘additional disclosures’ about green commitments ahead of AGM
  • I'm not very familiar with how public companies work, but I'm surprised that a shareholder with only 3% of ownership can make such demands and can excel such control. I understand they're the largest shareholder, but I could imagine a large portion of the remaining 97% would pay for now following the Paris accords since it may main less money for all investors on the future.

  • Russia lacks 'numbers for strategic breakthrough' in Ukraine: NATO
  • I feel it's been common knowledge since after the first month of the war that Russia has miscalculated significantly. They sent in paratroopers, some of the most time consuming and most expensive soldiers to train, into Kyiv where they were summarily killed or captured with no support. Other units ran out of ammo and fuel, with soldiers indicating they weren't expecting to invade.

    Every day this war lasts is a spit in the face to Putin and his shitty planning.

  • Shocking Sword Chased Away Shopkeep
  • Definitely punishing. Just never fight in the shop keep room as a rule. I haven't lost the shop keep in more than probably 100 of my last run attempts, with maybe the exception when I had the thieves armband

  • mate in two
  • I guess the trap is that if white goes for Queen, black moves the bishop to take the pawn by the king. That bishop is protected by the knight nearby and forces the king to move. The only place the king can move is up. The other bishop is then moved to force a check mate. Did I get it right?

  • Biden challenges Trump to 2 debates but won’t participate in nonpartisan commission's debates
  • I agree, in theory, but the fact of the matter is that the voters determine who can be president, and there's a large bloc that view Trump as a potential president. Ignoring the elephant in the room seems extremely problematic, especially when the right indicates that Biden is too senile, and incoherent to be president as it feeds into their message.

    www.kqed.org Impact of California Fast Food Worker Wage Increase Still Too Early to Gauge | KQED

    A month after most California fast food workers started earning at least $20 an hour, economists say it’s too early to determine industry impact. While some workers report improved quality of life, others see cuts in work hours and less income as employers adjust to more expensive payroll.

    Impact of California Fast Food Worker Wage Increase Still Too Early to Gauge | KQED

    I’m glad this was passed. Only worry I have is that the the corporations will have the money to take a hit in California. Keep the amount of money they siphon from CA high, translating to higher costs to the CA businesses and, despite the fact that more of their businesses will struggle, use that as evidence that this law should be repealed.

    Should I offer a more narrow salary expectation if the job listing already has a range?

    I'm doing interviews, and I wanted to get an idea of what other people are doing. Say a position offers a pay range between 50-65k. In my interview with HR (first interview), should I try to provide a more narrow range? for instance, " Based on my skills and experience, I'd expect a range between 56-60k" Or should I just tell them the range offered is good for me and let them actually provide an offer? This is of course assumes the entire range is acceptable to me. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    Article is very interesting and talks about the mix of goals in regards to the protests, and how speech negatively and positively helps accomplish those goals.

    As the Drug Enforcement Administration takes steps to move marijuana from a Schedule I drug to Schedule III, we examine how California's cannabis industry could be affected.

    How The DEA's New Marijuana Classification Could Affect California's Cannabis Industry

    A bigger “tax break” (in the form of allowing these businesses to actually deduct expenses like other legitimate businesses) for these dispensaries should mean cheaper products, less struggling businesses and also less black market marijuana.

    Better Clarity on Hidden Rooms -ShatteredPD

    I feel like hidden rooms aren't very transparently shown in the game. Currently there are usually 2-3 hidden rooms in each area, with an additional hidden room for every floor that has "many secrets". This is all totally fine, except that its sort of hard to identify them, even as someone that's rather familiar with what they are. By identify, I don't mean to search for them, but to actually identify whether a room is a hidden room or not.

    My suggestion would be that all hidden rooms share some kind of identifier. some suggestions would be:

    • uniquely colored door that, even if burned, has a different color so you'll always know that was an entrance to a hidden room

    • Uniquely colored flooring

    • Uniquely colored walls

    • Indications in the logs when you step into an area or floor ("you have found 1 of 2 or 3 hidden rooms in this area" "There is one discovered hidden room on this floor")

    Hidden rooms can affect your rankings score so allows for easier ways to track that would be welcomed.

    What are your opinions?

    Question about potential career path (Technical Account Manager)

    I'm currently a Technical account manager at a company and I'm uncertain where to go from here. I currently make 150k, with some of my more experienced coworkers making 200k. I'd like to apply to other companies to make more money.

    But I'm wondering, is staying in this sort of role good long term?

    Some additional information on what I do, since I understand this role varies company by company:

    We interact a lot with clients post sales making technical recommendations on the products of ours to use.

    We sometimes help direct clients with integration, or do it ourselves which involves using our REST API.

    We also sometimes have to configure and customize our web application front end, which involves making changes to its HTML, CSS, and JavaScript.

    We would sometimes also need to investigate and deploy bug fixes for production.

    Now, looking at potential jobs, I'm seeing Technical Account manager, Solutions Engineer, and customer engineer roles that seem really similar to what I'm doing now, paying about 150k average, maybe even a bit more. I'm uncertain what kind of progression there is though.

    On the other hand, as a software engineer (which,despite having a degree in CS, i have no work experience doing, other than what I'm doing now), it feels like there's an, obvious to me, career progression. The issue is that it appears that the average pay for what I think I could work as (junior/entry level software engineer) is closer to 100 - 120k.

    Should I keep trying to stay in my current job type? What sort of new positions should I aim for to make more money?

    Should I bite the bullet and go into software engineering, losing some short term income in exchange for a better career path with better pay in the future? Should I be applying for entry level positions? or staff/intermediate level Software engineering roles?

    any advice is appreciated!

    locking procedure check

    I just recently got into using a bike for commuting and I was wondering if this is a good way to secure my bike? I know, previously, people would recommend only needing to lock the back tire to a solid object, but I’ve seen videos of people easily cutting the back tire, breaking it and taking the frame/front tire. My method of locking is sort of similar, except I do lock around the splash guard. If this isn’t very secure, I’d have to get a longer ulock or chain, because there doesn’t appear to be an easy way for me to lock around the back tire, frame and solid object with my current ulock. Any suggestions are appreciated.
