Supreme Court declines to hear sales tax case
Mon Dec 2, 2013
In Florida it is a sales and use tax. If your mechanic fixes your car without installing a part there is no sales tax. If they install a part there is sales tax on both the labor and the price of the part. If you buy a box of ice cream sandwiches at the grocery store it is tax exempt. If you buy a s …
Did the feds fix HealthCare.gov? How we'll know
Wed Nov 27, 2013
I personally know two people that work in IT. They work as progammers/analysts and one even higher up the ladder but still in a hands on position. One works in a network that covers sites all over the world and the other only five states. They are not surprised that the HealthCare.gov is not up and …
'The time is right': FCC considers allowing cellphone calls on planes
Thu Nov 21, 2013
Text would be ok, but it's bad enough in restuarants, public places etc. I will never forget one night at a really great steakhouse in our area many years ago when cellphones had just came out this guy was walking around talking way too loud, pehaps he wanted to show he had one of the newest things …
US in a 'real state of crisis,' education secretary says
Tue Oct 8, 2013
One problem already mentioned, the lack of parental involvement. I worked in the county school system here, not as a teacher but I knew many of them and found that some teachers only had one parent out of 120 possible show up on parent teacher night. Having educated parents probably helps quite a bi …
'Required reading': As textbook prices soar, students try to cope
Sun Sep 15, 2013
I know books are a big expense for the students. The thing that really upset me was the price charged for offcampus housing. Most 1 bedroom apartments rented for $600. +/-. But when my daughter was in a two or four bedroom apartment the charge was approximately $600.00 to $700.00 per person. Es …
You will look better with sleep, but you have to wear your mask: study
Fri Sep 13, 2013
Just over a year ago I was diagnosed with sleep apnea. Once I started on the CPAP the difference was like night and day. No more dozing off in the middle of the day, or slapping my own face to stay awake while driving. It was only after I fell asleep ,behind the wheel,while stopped at a redlight at …

'Cutest new animal' discovered: It's an olinguito!
Thu Aug 15, 2013
Unfortunately we will probably never find all of the previously unknown species in the world before we eliminate them or their habitat. For many years,esp. durng the Vietnam war, there were tales of an antelope like animal somewhere in the jungles of Laos and Vietnam, but no Westerner had …
'I'm sorry that I hurt the United States': Bradley Manning apologizes in court
Wed Aug 14, 2013
First of all how did he get in such a position? Anyone in a position of high security has to have a background check as I did back in the mid 1960's, Top Secret B.I., as I was cleared to work with weapons that could have nuclear capabilities. Now I guess everyone that needs that type of clearance sh …

Fri Aug 9, 2013
Anyone that discloses government operations or secrets no matter how contraversial should be considered treasonous. If Snowden had a problem with the way things were being done he should have gone through channels.
