  2. Olivia was going to USC for a Liberal Arts degree. How does a liberal arts degree gets these jobs? http://www.collegeranker.com/liberal-arts-degree-jobs/
  3. That video posted by Olivia Loughlin (post #2 above) where she talks about how she just want to go to college to party has been removed by her. Her YouTube channel with the rest of her videos talking about clothing, makeup, shopping, girls stuff is still up. By the way, Olivia had endorsement contracts with several companies as an advertising spokesmodel. Those companies include Sephora and Tresemmé and both company have now dropped her and deleted any trace of her from their websites. The Hallmark Channel has also dropped her mother's movie contract. Here comes the lawsuits including one filed by the parents of a young man (who looks Asian and we know Asians with a 4.2 GPA do not get deny admission into colleges) asking for $500 billion, Yes! Billions, not millions, in damages!! https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-6809747/Lawsuits-filed-500b-wake-college-cheating-scandal.html https://paloaltoonline.com/news/2019/03/14/stanford-students-file-class-action-lawsuit-in-admissions-scandal The only ones who end up making any real money from all these lawsuits will be lawyers. I should had been a lawyer!!
  4. QUOTE: " Lori Loughlin‘s daughters are dropping out of the University of Southern California — because they’re afraid of being bullied over the massive college admissions scam that has left them feeling like “a mess,” a report said Thursday. Olivia Jade, 19, and her sister, 20-year-old Isabella Rose, have decided to withdraw from USC days after their parents, “Fuller House” star Loughlin and her husband, fashion designer Mossimo Giannulli, were charged for allegedly paying the girls’ way into the school. " That's alright. They don't need college: their mommy and daddy have plenty of money if they can manage to stay out of prison.
  5. Now trying to get into college even if you have good grades and a good academic record in High School and high SAT sores, it's like getting a job. I've seen first hand what my brother's kids went through to get into the colleges of their choice. It's no longer just get a good score on the SAT and apply with several colleges and see which one will accept you. Regarding Olivia Loughlin, you would think with as much money as her parents have...I heard their house is worth $25 million, so their net worth must be considerably more ...they could've just bought the little brat a fancy clothing boutique or something to make her feel like she's a "success" in life. Supposedly she makes $50,000 a year posting selfies on Instagram. How the heck do you make money posting selfies and talking about yourself on Instagram? No wonder so many of these young kids have no reality regarding what work and earning money is about. It takes no effort to post a photo on social media and type a few words.
  6. I had a thought yesterday. Instead of 1 hour Spring forward and 1 hour Fall back, why not just meet halfway and have 30 minutes Spring forward and 30 minutes Fall back. That will be easier on everyone's natural internal body clock.
  7. Yes, there will. In the article above, coaches and admission counselors and even SAT test monitors who took bribes to allow others to impersonate the rich kids and take the SAT in their place are being arrested. You are correct Morph, for each one of these rich kids whose parents bought them a spot into a college, there is a kid who worked hard grades K-12, made good grades, did every extra academic activities they could (sports, math club, chess club, yearbook, etc) during school hours and after, their parents also had to spent a great deal of time driving them to and from, prepared for the SAT and made high scores, gone to several college admission interviews and wrote letters to Deans stating why they should be allowed to attend a particular college, etc etc only to lose their spot to one of these rich kids who if they are like Loughlin's daughter in her YouTube channel video, who doesn't care if she goes to college or not.
  8. This Daylight Savings still kicking my butt. Every Day since Sunday, I go to sleep around 11 pm, wake up about 5 am: 6 hours sleep average each of those nights. But by 11 am I'm ready for a nap but I can't take one because I am at work.
  9. Watching The Dam Busters. The story about this for those who are not World War II experts: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Chastise George Lucas admitted he used this movie as inspiration for the Star Wars Death Star Trench run. He is an unoriginal hack. He even stole the dialogue from it.
  10. Looks like this is just the tip of the iceberg, it goes much bigger than 50 people charged. https://www.cnn.com/2019/03/13/us/what-we-know-college-admissions-cheating-scandal/index.html
  11. The kids come from wealthy families. I am sure since school grade K and all the way to 12, they were sent to the best schools. Their parents shouldn't have to bribe anyone for these kids to be admitted into the best colleges. If they have applied themselves from grade school to high school, they will make good scores on the SAT and have the SAT scores and their high school activities and ranking enough to get them into the finest college. Now since they couldn't get into the finest colleges without their parents bribing someone, it meant they had lousy grades from grade 1-12. Well, whose fault is that? It's not just the kids' fault! It's also their parents! For not paying attention to how well their kids are doing in school and for not catching it early enough to establish discipline and a school work regiment. So if the kids got into colleges because of bribes, will they be allowed to continue their education? I think they should be kicked out. If some of them have already earned a degree, should that degree be invalidated?
  12. "I do want the experiences of game days, partying. I don't really care about school; as you guys all know." -Lori Loughlin's daughter, on her YouTube channel last August! She can go work at McDonald's if she doesn't want to go to college. Can't believe her parents paid $500,000 in bribes to get her spoiled dumb butt and her sister into college.
  13. https://www.usatoday.com/story/life/2019/03/12/felicity-huffman-lori-loughlin-indicted-admissions-bribery-case-reports/3139204002/ https://www.cnn.com/us/live-news/college-admissions-cheating-felicity-huffman-lori-loughlin/index.html Lori Loughlin? One of my favorite actresses from the 80's. She was in Full House and Secret Admirer. What the HECK she gone and do that for??? Read the articles! Some of the money they paid in bribes to get their kids into these prominent colleges is more than the money they would pay for 4 years of college education.

    There isn't a week that goes by that I don't run into stupid clueless lack of common sense people whether it's people that come to my business or people I come across when I deal with a business that I give my money to. Did these people had poor parenting? Poor schooling? Or were they dropped on their heads when they were babies or just born dumb? What is this world coming to?

    Reading Morphie's situation, it makes me think: I am so glad I am self employed and own my own company and I am the boss, a fair and caring boss too. I will never do to my employees what some of the employers I worked for when I was younger did to me. I don't think I can ever work for anyone again especially nowadays just about everywhere you go, you notice the person in charge is someone 30 years younger than me who doesn't know diddly squat but they think they are God. Most of them have no business skills, very little training, no people skills, no customer service skills. For example a month ago I bought a 9 piece box of fried chicken for lunch. Bit into one piece and it was raw. Bit into another piece and it was also raw. I didn't even bother to check the rest. I drove back to the restaurant and showed the cashier and she said: that's not good. Let me get the manager to replace it for you. She calls the manager who is this Hispanic kid that couldn't be older than 19. Do you know what he did? He took a look at it and asked me what do you want to do about it? I told him I want you to replace it with chicken that is cooked thoroughly or refund my money. He wouldn't do it. On my receipt, at the bottom of it, there was a name and a phone # printed and underneath it, it read District Manager. So I pick up the phone and call him while I was still at the restaurant standing in front of the manager. I told him and explained to him what happened including his Manager not doing the right thing and he said: "why are you calling me? Just tell Adrian (the manager) to replace it or to give you a refund." I said: you tell him because he is not listening to me and I hand my phone to Adrian. Gee whiz. All that work and time and gas wasn't even worth the 9 pieces box of chicken or the refund of the $9.73 I paid for it. So again, I don't think I can work for anyone nowadays at my age especially if I have to take orders from some 20 years old who doesn't know anything and who doesn't know how to speak to people. p.s. I posted a review of this experience on YELP, GOOGLE and OpenTable. There are also complaints by other reviewers about this restaurant's poor customer service and food and products quality issues.t I also submitted a complaint ticket to the Houston Health Department Restaurant Inspection division. The restaurant in question hasn't been inspected in over 4 months and their last 2 inspections last year were both C.

  18. I woke up about 7 am new time, checked my email and checked the internet, Andrea asked me if I wanted breakfast, I said not yet, Laid down on the sofa and fell asleep until 10 am. Usually once I am up, I am up regardless of the time of the morning even if it's still 4 am.

    So when they want you to cover their shifts so they can go play Ferris Bueller's Days Off, they make you work to death and when they don't need you, they cut your hours to nothing. I would leave but again not before finding another job. How long can you collect unemployment for? If this happened in Texas, you are automatically given unemployment insurance because your employer changed the 'contract' of your job description.

    So they go from over working you to only giving you 3-4 hours each week for the whole month? They make the entire month schedule in advance? I would talk to whoever is in charge before quitting. They know you can't live on one 3-4 hour shift per month. Whoever is in charge won't correct the situation after you have spoken with him/her/them, go over their head. But never quit a job until you have another job.
