    Dolby > IMAX?

    I looked at the venue where I saw Dune in the IMAX. I circled the seat I had.

    By comparison, the Dolby theater seems a bit smaller.

    See this clip below:

    Of the two jobs shown in this clip, half is taken by an immigrant, but most of the work is done by the immigrant, most of the energy is supplied by the immigrant, yet the immigrant is the one you feel like you want to punch in the face anyway.

    It will probably not happen, but what a seismic event if a third party won.

    @Jolly I agree, but many people say one thing but usually shop with their wallet. Pay farmworkers more --> food prices go up. Pay slaughter house workers more --> meat prices go up.

    (We have had discussions on here about increase the minimum wage)

    Go to a grocery store. Buy a $1 apple from US or a $0.75 apple from Mexico? What will the majority of people chose?

    Read a story about the decline of steel in the US. Definitely steel work fits the 3 "D" definition of a job. Well paying also. But cheaper steel from mainly China, etc. has decreased the US market quite a bit. Now of course, labor cost is not the only reason Chinese steel is cheaper but is a (somewhat big) contribution.

    Is that the only document released by the CDC on this subject, or are there other documents also released by the CDC on this subject, and the "completely redacted" document is but a data table with patients' personal information?

    Saints didn't have a third-rounder, so I traded back in the first and swapped for a 30 and a 62.

    Kingsley Suamataia
    OT BYU

    T'Vondre Sweat
    DT Texas

    Payton Wilson
    LB NC State

    Brandon Coleman
    OG TCU

    The BYU guy was on my radar, but if the OT from Georgia had still been on the board, I wouldn't have traded out of 14. Sweat is a run-stopper and would pair well with Breese, the #1 from last year. Wilson is in more than one mock for the Saints... Davis is getting very long in the tooth and while he had a good season last year, it's cliff time. Davis is very fast and can cover a lot of ground. Let the rookie learn from the All-pro. Coleman? Don't have a clue. Just took the best guy available on the OL. He was a tackle in college, but projects as a guard.

    Just did four rounds, because after that, it's BPA out of the cloud.

    Don't know why the board changed the C&P order. Picks should be 30,45,62,93 for the four rounds.

    It seems that a lot of what he wrote is starting to happening now. For example, dont need to go to college to learn coding.

    (On the other hand, i disagree when he talks about corporate labs not doing as well as the big company laboratories in the 1950's etc. There is still a tremendous amount of inventions and innovation that happens in companies R&D(

    I may be completely wrong, but in my thinking, musicians and writers are similar in who makes it to the top. Talent for sure, but there is also some luck.

    I am sure that there are many talented writers (and musicians) who are not at the right place at the right time and just dont get the break they need to become popular.

    And it's so easy. Turn on the smoker, put the steak on, and it's done in 30 minutes or so. I try to remember to flip it once, but eh, no big deal if I don't.

    In our condo, that's not an option.

    Nevertheless, I am jealous.

    You could get a smoker gun like restaurants use. Not sure how effective they are.
