Legality of Unpaid Internships

I was linked to this article through Cartoon Brew, which is one of the more prominent animation blogs. http://www.nytimes.com/2010/04/03/business/03intern.html The Brew post: http://www.cartoonbrew.com/student/most-unpaid-internships-are-illegal.html And the Department of Labor text: http://wdr.dole...

Re: NY Times - Overhaul Will Lower the Costs of Being a Woman

Dd, I expect better of you than strawmen . And you chastised Harlowe's post. Oh, please. :roll: In the interest of keeping this post short because I'd just be repeating myself, reread my previous post until you can stop playing your own little guilt trip, dishonest, strawman, knee-jerk, pretend-Sele...

Re: NY Times - Overhaul Will Lower the Costs of Being a Woman

"omg sexism, men are keeping us down" You're misquoting me often Dd, and just being silly there. Do I have to scream it, really? I am only saying the final effect is sexist . Having to pay so much more on insurance than men on top of making less on the dollar than men does keep women in a much tigh...

Re: Alluveal Style Vent

Riggen, I have never seen an allergist (it finally got so bad, I missed a day of work and some school which was the last straw), so I had thought that it was so any traces in my system wouldn't mess with any tests he'll run. But it makes sense if it's to see how bad it actually is. Still, !@#$% I've...

Alluveal Style Vent

Eff you, allergies! I feel worse now than with some of the flus I've caught. :evil: Spring used to be my favorite season until you ruined it. :evil: You're so bad, no over the counter antihistamine is fully working for me. :evil: Also, eff you, Savannah trees. Your clouds of yellow pollen drifting d...

Re: NY Times - Overhaul Will Lower the Costs of Being a Woman

The implication that the agencies colluded to disadvantage women smacks of paranoid delusion. Who knows their actual intent? I don't. None of us can really either, unless you're linking like Lurker. I can't believe you guys assumed paranoia from my first posts because I said, regardless, their inte...

Re: NY Times - Overhaul Will Lower the Costs of Being a Woman

It is charging higher rates to people who represent a higher risk and use the system more? Did you read it? 'Cause I don't think so: The rationale was that women used the health care system more than men. But some companies charged women who did not smoke more than men who did, even though smokers ...

Re: Damn this place will never die

I'll add that the lack of a (worthwhile) community was the biggest reason I left WoW, (like three times every couple of years), next to a lack of time.

NY Times - Overhaul Will Lower the Costs of Being a Woman

http://www.nytimes.com/2010/03/30/health/30women.html I trust the NY Times enough, and I kept hearing horror stories from various sources, so thank fucking motherfucking fuck for these changes. Ugh, too angry after reading those bullshit practices. Shit like that is what I would have grown up into?

Re: MS Walk Fundraiser

I take D and I'm pretty sure it's D3. There's some B12 included in my multi-vitamin, but I don't take a separate, full-dose supplement. I take cod liver oil which is supposed to aid in myelin growth/regrowth. I haven't had any new episodes (that I'm aware of) since going on Betaseron. Occasionally, ...

Re: Netbook Accessories

Well, I looked far and wide and ended up typing most of the specific search results from other sites into Amazon. Thanks for the links, they helped me expand my search. :) I am so effin' picky with my bags so it'll be a few more days until I decide, but in case anyone was curious, here are the two t...

MS Walk Fundraiser

This feels a little weird to post here, but a lot of you have known me for a long time and this is for a good cause. :) Out of the blue, my super amazing boyfriend told me that on April 24th, he will be walking in the National MS Society Walk in Raleigh, NC to raise money for MS research. He plans t...

Re: Netbook Accessories

Oh, wow, that's far too expensive. I'll take your word for it that they're good, but I'll have to go with much cheaper -- something I'm pretty sure is good, instead of 100% knowing.

I keep hearing it's good. All the other animators loved it, so it's nice to know any training didn't get in the way of enjoying it. Sooo need to see it soon.
