“Have no idea what server to enter to test if it's vulnerable???? Need Geek please”

“I have just been putting in the websites I use to buy things or log onto and it tells you on that test site. i.e.: barnesandnoble.com--got the oh, oh. Amazon OK etc. Not sure what to do if I got the uh, oh, but assume websites will be fixed later. They should word it better for instructions. Most people don't really know what a server is.”
“Many of us out here have masters degrees and still trying to compete for less than what we made 20 yrs ago...if you haven't watched Inequality for All, you should!! Think if some of those CEO's out there making millions would hire 10 people for 100,000 or 20 at 50,000 what that would mean to those people and this economy.”

“Just having a Masters Degree doesnt guarantee a job if it's an MA.
Graduates of STEM courses are four or five times more likely to get jobs than grads of arts programs.
STEM courses are harder, longer, but infinitely more rewarding financially.”

“Then the 10 or 20 people who didn't get hired with masters degrees would post on HP...where does it stop? Maybe the best 10 or 20 people were hired....sour grapes”

“I have moved 5 times in 10 years, (3 in the last 4) and have gone from a 4400 sq. ft. home to one less than half that size. I've given away or sold so much STUFF! Mountains of stuffed animals and clothes and furniture. This last move in December has been tough. I've had boxes and rubbermaid containers that haven't been opened since I moved here 10 yrs ago. Sifting through my life is an emotional roller coaster...kids' papers I couldn't part with a decade ago, I'm happy to say goodbye to t. I'm keeping the artwork and the home made cards though, because they bring me so much joy...they are just so amazing. It's easy to get rid of the stuff, not so easy to get rid of the baggage that comes with all those memories. I have about 10 or 15 more containers to go through, and then my next move I feel will be free of a lot of 'stuff' I'd rather forget.”
“Yeah, that's like tell a cop he's not getting coffee and donuts in my store! Who the hell else goes to B and B more than gay couples. I wouldn't want to go someplace I'm not wanted, but still the guy is allowed to believe what he would like. But if there is a near by place that will cater to gay weddings, why not put this guy out of business??? :-)”
“I responded with a bad word...I will censor myself because people on HP can't read words like asp and funk...anyway..yeah in 18 months if I could move to Canada ...as with all people all over the world, all our vices will be gone due to pricing...yeah...smoke some more BC dope Don B. peace”
My main point in the beginning, was a tax on high sugar foods probably won't affect obesity in an appreciable way, given the American diet and my own experience as a health professional, education and motivation to change is the biggest difference in any health practice.”

“"Probably" is the operative word. You really do not know.
The fact is that alcohol abuse is far lower in Canada than the U.S. by all measures.
I say cost has something to do with it, and you do not know...
Maybe Canadians are just happier than Americans and don't need it.”
“Well looking at several studies I don't see conclusive evidence to suggest that it does. It seems since the government both benefits from and regulates the industry, it makes it hard to actually determine whether or not the relative tax has any effect, although several meta analyses suggest it does. One study I read pointed out that many of the provinces have private liquor sales and so it's hard to monitor or regulate pricing or social effects, indirect and direct costs. http://www.ccsa.ca/2012%20CCSA%20Documents/CCSA-Analysis-Alcohol-Sales-Policies-Canada-2012-en.pdf
With any tax, it has to be substantial enough to change behavior. Some of the studies I read seemed to indicate that it did, but said overall alcohol consumption in Canada continues to rise per capita...
In Canada, there has been an overall increase in per capita alcohol consumption of
10% from 7.2 litres in fiscal year 1996-1997 to 8.2 litres in fiscal year 2008/09 (20). http://www.apolnet.ca/resources/pubs/respapers/FromEvidenceToAction-Feb2011.pdf
Further, in this study, the price adjustments that occurred after the implementation of the 2010 tax increase didn't effect the retail pricing much at all. (only 12% of all products were affected) Any of the congratulatory conclusions seem iffy at best to me.”
“Speaking as a divorced mother of two, I learned it doesn't pay to be NICE! Went through a mediator, and it cost me dearly. Not only does the court favor that spouse with more money (generally the man) it doesn't protect children as it should. I made the mistake of thinking that I could be protected if I asked for help...HA!!”
“I don't, but even if there is a smaller incidence of alcoholism, it doesn't necessarily mean it is from the tax on liquor. Just as tobacco usage in America is smaller, not because it costs more, but because of decades long campaign of education and research about the negative effects on a person's health.”

“You are trying to make an argument without any facts...”
“The second movie was awful...please have someone write a decent script....if it weren't for the dinner and drinks beforehand, nothing would stand out except the desert and camels and camel toe or something like that...so bad.”
“Maybe a bit excessive, but they do have means by which you can report false or fake profiles, and if they knowingly are committing fraud by allowing hers and others likenesses at a profit ...that is wrong. Most of the time you can spot the most obvious of liars, it's the very skillful ones that are truly sociopaths that can be dangerous. I would hope that any business, regardless of whether it's online or in person, would try their best NOT to have their customers taken advantage of or lied to. If the purpose of the site is to allow people to connect and get to know one another, meet, date whatever....then it should also have a means to determine if their members are legitimate. And when reported, to remove the profiles and stop that user from opening another fake profile. They also use member profiles to advertise on their site...probably something you wave when you sign up. I know I was featured for months. Call me what you will. I certainly have become a skeptic in many areas of my life, and I won't ever use Match.com, or any other dating site again. If I ever date again, it will be because I meet someone in person. I'm just a bit jaded by the whole dating in your 40's thing...yuck!”
“I can tell you I was a victim of "catfishing" and it is devastating. You think you would never fall prey to something like this, but if you are a bit naive, in a vulnerable place, and trusting, there is definitely people out there who will take advantage of you. I hope she wins...match.com is horrible!”

“First, those that are taken advantage of are the ones that have had a real loss, not this woman. Second, while businesses have an obligation to legitimate businesses, they do not have a responsibility to protect peole from their own ignorance. Media companies aren't responsibile for the absolute honesty of every ad ... match.com is no different as long as they make reasonabe efforts to weed out fake profiles. Last, $1.5Billion for this infraction? This is just an obvious money grab.”
