Linus Tech Tips (LTT) release investigation results on former accusations (x.com)

There were a series of accusations about our company last August from a former employee. Immediately following these accusations, LMG hired Roper Greyell - a large Vancouver-based law firm specializing in labor and employment law, to conduct a third-party investigation. Their website describes them as “one of the largest...

That’s pretty much my thinking too. I mean, what’s the less biased alternative to get to the truth here? The law firm has an incentive to satisfy the people paying them, but they also have their own reputation to maintain.

So I guess I’d be inclined to skeptically believe their findings. Although, it would be better if the firm released their own summary (or endorsed this one).

Due to cost or reliability improvements? Or both? Because cars are definitely operational a lot longer than they were 25-50 years ago.

What are you talking about? American made cars (majority of historical volume) were notoriously bad until recently. Hondas and Toyotas were the exception. Now the expectation is that every make/model makes it to 200k miles.

And rust was an issue because they used inferior paint on older vintages. I don’t see how blaming it on material deficiencies supports your point.

That’s the case now, but not historically. The big 3 were making garbage cars until foreign companies expanded their US presence with domestic manufacturing. Widespread foreign makes built in the US is relatively recent.

I think if they introduce a rotating calendar Imola would be an ideal track to have in the rotation. The racing usually isn’t great, but it’s not the worst, and it would still keep an iconic circuit in F1. Seems like a good compromise.

You know, Jesus did grow up. You don’t always have to call him baby. It’s a bit odd and off putting to pray to a baby.

I like to picture Jesus in a Tuxedo T-shirt, 'cause it says, ‘I wanna be formal, but I’m here to party, too.’

US prisoners are being assigned dangerous jobs. But what happens if they are hurt or killed? (apnews.com)

Blas Sanchez was nearing the end of a 20-year stretch in an Arizona prison when he was leased out to work at Hickman’s Family Farms, which sells eggs that end up in the supply chains of huge companies like McDonald’s, Target and Albertsons. While assigned to a machine that churns chicken droppings into compost, his right leg...

Do you have any more information about illegal slavery until the 1980s? I’m not doubting it, I’ve just never heard that and would like to learn more.

This headline is technically correct, but it’s clearly meant to cause outrage. The headline “Trump’s Bible only includes the bill of rights” isn’t going to get as much attention.

Manufacturing outrage obfuscates Trump’s actions that people should actually be outraged about.

@bhmnscmm@lemmy.world avatar

The headline specifically states those two amendments are omitted because it is the most likely to cause outrage, not because it is the most accurate description of the situation. It’s not incorrect. It’s misleading.

My county courthouse has a mural of the original constitution and the bill of rights: are they making a political statement by omitting all the other amendments?

Not sure if this is exactly what you’re looking for, but the opening scene to The Conversation uses a high-zoom shot: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wlwdpNw1FW8

Eye in the Sky also prominently features long-distance/high magnification shots from the perspective of a drone/UAV.

If Hamas isn’t a terrorist organization then what would you call them?

bhmnscmm,
@bhmnscmm@lemmy.world avatar

My definition of terrorist tactics is irrelevant to how the OP would classify Hamas.

Regardless, here’s how terrorism is defined on Wikipedia: it seems pretty reasonable to me.

Terrorism, in its broadest sense, is the use of violence against non-combatants to achieve political or ideological aims. The term is used in this regard primarily to refer to intentional violence during peacetime or in the context of war against non-combatants

@bhmnscmm@lemmy.world avatar

The fact that you’re trying move this conversation towards the actions of Israel while avoiding the actions of Hamas leads me to believe you’re not interested in having a genuine discussion. I think you’re trying to play gotcha.

Have Israel and Hamas used terrorist tactics? I think so. Do both sides not care about the well-being of civilians? I think so. Are both sides of this conflict bad? I think so.

bhmnscmm,
@bhmnscmm@lemmy.world avatar

I agree with everything you’ve said. Hamas can be a terrorist organization, and still be the elected government. Both can be true, and acknowledging the how and why of that being the case is necessary reach a resolution to the conflict.

Study reveals "widespread, bipartisan aversion" to neighbors owning AR-15 rifles (www.psypost.org)

A recent study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences reveals that across all political and social groups in the United States, there is a strong preference against living near AR-15 rifle owners and neighbors who store guns outside of locked safes. This surprising consensus suggests that when it comes...

@bhmnscmm@lemmy.world avatar

I could understand the argument for factoring people’s feelings into policy in some cases, but let’s take this study as an example.

Handguns are responsible for far more harm than AR-15s, but this study shows people “fear” AR-15s more. A policy that is based on these findings and not empirical data may attempt to reduce gun violence by addressing AR-15 ownership. Thereby not having a major effect on reducing actual gun violence.

A policy focusing on reducing handgun ownership would be much more effective at reducing gun violence, despite people not fearing them as much.

I think you’re confusing me with other commentors. I haven’t suggested this research in particular is being actively used to support policy decisions. Nor have I suggested this research is advocating for policy.

In my initial comment I simply said policy in general (at least with gun control) shouldn’t be based on people’s feelings/anecdotes.

I think this study asked a very interesting question, and I find the results to be very interesting. I don’t really have any issues with this research by itself.

So you spend $400/month on restaurants?

$150 x 4 = $600/month.

I don’t get the point you’re trying to make with your graph. Obviously there wouldn’t be many Zoomers working full time; most are still in school.

Zoomers born after 2006 haven’t graduated high-school, and those born between 2002-2006 are in college. That’s leaves only a 5 year window of people you’d expect to be employed full time.

The line for millenials looks about the same as Zoomers.

@bhmnscmm@lemmy.world avatar

I’m trying to understand your argument against the article and what point you’re trying to make by using their chart.

bhmnscmm,
@bhmnscmm@lemmy.world avatar

I can’t read the entire article since it’s behind a pay wall for me, but graph alone doesn’t support or contradict the headline. It simply shows the full time employment of Zoomers is comparable millenials at when they were the same age. It doesn’t show anything about income.
