Man Uses Drone to Expose One of America's ‘Biggest Secrets’
Post Date: 2015-08-02 15:41:02 by Willie Green
Smithfield Foods has a lot to answer for after a drone just exposed the vile environmental practices happening at one of its pig farms in North Carolina. Recently, filmmaker Mark Devries flew a drone over the hidden farm to see what was happening behind the thick forest cover surrounding it. Next to the warehouses packed with thousands of pigs, the drone spied a massive cess pool the size of four football fields. According to a former local farmer, Don Webb, It is a cess pool that you put feces and urine in a hole in the ground that you dump a toxic waste in. All of the pig waste is collected in the warehouses and flushed into the giant pool large enough to accommodate the ...
Death of a Diploma Mill: University of Phoenix Going Down in Flames?

The troubled online university might have finally been dealt dual deathblows as they announced an FTC investigation and a 54% drop in enrollment.A phoenix is a bird that rises from the ashes, but the University of Phoenix is a diploma mill that may soon go down in flames.

CEO Raises Salaries to $70K for EVERY Employee, Now has to Rent Out his Own Home to Make Ends Meet [Full Thread]
Post Date: 2015-08-02 10:40:45 by GrandIsland
Back in April we told you about Dan Price, CEO of Gravity Payments, who said he would pay every single one of his employees $70,000 annually. Every single one, from the lowest skilled workers on up. Now, as expected, Price has fallen on hard times financially, even having to rent out his own home. Employees who work for Gravity are now leaving the company, spurred in part by their view that it was unfair to double the pay of some new hires while the longest-serving staff members got small or no raises. This was always going to be the outcome. If everyone hits the jackpot, does anybody really win the lottery? When Dan Price, founder and CEO of the Seattle-based ...

Post Date: 2015-07-24 13:49:53 by cranky

Marijuana opponents using racketeering law to fight industry
Post Date: 2015-07-13 19:31:13 by cranky
A federal law crafted to fight the mob is giving marijuana opponents a new strategy in their battle to stop the expanding industry: racketeering lawsuits. A Colorado pot shop recently closed after a Washington-based group opposed to legal marijuana sued not just the pot shop but a laundry list of firms doing business with it from its landlord and accountant to the Iowa bonding company guaranteeing its tax payments. One by one, many of the plaintiffs agreed to stop doing business with Medical Marijuana of the Rockies, until the mountain shop closed its doors and had to sell off its pot at fire-sale prices. With another lawsuit pending in southern Colorado, the cases represent a new ...

Bloomberg: Good Luck Finding a Place to Hide as Global Markets Crumble
Post Date: 2015-07-06 14:06:38 by Tooconservative
Investors tend to respond to impending doom by selling risky stuff and hiding out in safer assets -- namely, bonds in places such as Germany and the U.S. Theres a problem with that formula this time around: Traders arent so sure they can find anything thats truly safe right now. So, instead of piling into sovereign debt of developed nations, traders are pulling their money out of those places as the Greek economy teeters on the brink of collapse, Puerto Rico talks about delaying some debt payments and Chinas stock market suffers its biggest selloff since 1992. Investors yanked $2.9 billion from European government bond funds last week, more than ever before, and ...

Greek banks down to €500m in cash reserves as economy crashes
Post Date: 2015-07-03 19:58:54 by nativist nationalist
The daily allowance of cash from many ATM machines has already dropped from 60 to 50, purportedly because 20 notes are running out. Greece is sliding into a full-blown national crisis as the final cash reserves of the banking system evaporate by the hour and swathes of industry start to shut down, precipitating the near disintegration of the ruling coalition. Business leaders have been locked in talks with the Bank of Greece, pleading for the immediate release of emergency liquidity funds (ELA) to cover food imports and pharmaceutical goods before the tourist sector hits a brick wall. Officials say the central bank will release the funds as soon as Friday, but this is a ...
TV Land pulls ‘Dukes’ — Confederate flag a no-no
Post Date: 2015-07-01 13:39:00 by Willie Green
Tom Wopat (left) and John Schneider with their car, the General Lee. The latest victim of the growing controversy over the Confederate flag is the 1980s TV series The Dukes of Hazzard. A TV Land spokesperson confirmed Tuesday that the network has pulled reruns of the series from its schedule, which had been airing twice a day. The network declined to comment on why the episodes were removed, but the South-set show has come under fire recently for its use of the Confederate flag, which is emblazoned on the roof of the Duke Boys signature 1969 orange Dodge Charger.

NASCAR again tries to distance itself from Confederate flag
Post Date: 2015-06-24 10:30:00 by Willie Green
Confederate flags are as easy to find at NASCAR races as cutoff jeans, cowboy hats and beer. They fly over motorhomes. They adorn clothing. They are regular fixtures, just like Ford and Chevrolet, and that is unlikely to change any time soon. NASCAR probably would like to see them go away. The sanctioning body for the motorsports series backed South Carolina Gov. Nikki Haley's call to remove the Confederate flag from the Statehouse grounds in the wake of the Charleston church massacre. NASCAR issued its statement Tuesday, the same day South Carolina lawmakers agreed to discuss removing the flag and one day after Haley said "the time has come" to take it down. And that is ...

Walmart: No more items with Confederate flags
Post Date: 2015-06-22 21:00:14 by Willie Green
Walmart said in a statement Monday that it is removing "all items" promoting the Confederate flag for sale from its stores and its website. The move came the same day that Gov. Nikki Haley of South Carolina called for the removal of a Confederate flag from the state Capitol grounds in Columbia. Her announcement in turn came in the wake of last week's shooting at a historically black Charleston church that left nine dead. Charged in the killing is Dylan Roof, 21, who is white and has been attributed with making white supremacist statements. He has been pictured with images of a Confederate flag. "We never want to offend anyone with the products that we offer," ...

"During the six-month beta-period we will come to your house or apartment twice a month to deliver our patented next-generation kitty litter product and while there we will happily clean your litter box until it's sparkling fresh." The $20-a-month poop-scooping service isn't the real draw here though. According ...
