Uh, no family got $1.1 billion. "Owners of some 16 million Toyota, Lexus and Scion vehiclesRead More would be eligible for payments and safety updates that would vary depending on their vehicle and its age."
Alek J Hidell April 10, 2014 at 09:48 am
In the case of the California Highway Patrol officer, Toyota paid $10 million to settle his case butRead More did not admit fault for the crash which killed him and his family. Toyota also paid $1.1 billion to settle purely financial claims with customers who claimed that the safety defects decreased the value of their Toyota, Lexus, and Scion vehicles......

Although most of Lowe's employees are good people and hard working, Lowe's refuses to hire or evenRead More interview those with a college degree, it is laughable. Lowe's is just a typical corporation with some sick CEO who's motto is probably "money is everything."

BTW, aten't you guys the ones who have discounted RV rental rates for veterans? If so, thank you very much for your service to our veteran community.
Joseph Kelly March 5, 2014 at 01:51 pm
Since the average cost of tax preparation is nearly $240.00, it's no wonder that individuals andRead More small business are handcuffed. If there's one common thread in politics it's an inability to rectify a broken and weighted tax system. And it's not likely to change; because these same interests and entities are major player's in the super PACS that finance today's multi million dollar election campaigns. Elect the same people who refuse to correct the problem with existing tax complexity and the real problem will not go away. This level of evasion is nothing compared to the money that is hidden in the magicians hat, in countries like Bermuda, Cayman Islands, Switzerland, and Luxenburg, among others. Just waiting for some front man to grant amnesty to all money holding outside of the U.S. Politicians are all dishonest and should be held accountable.
Rhonda Kitley March 5, 2014 at 02:34 pm
Thank you TVOR! Yes we discount all of our services, RV repair, rentals, storage and parts to allRead More Veterans, Police and Firefighters. We try to help where we can! Thanks again for your kind words!

Tough Mudder brought lots of folks and highly desirable revenue to the corridor as a matter of fact!!!

How many of you have dust filed homes or intentionally inhale carcinogenic pesticides?

Hey Artemis, you may not realize that farming is the number 1 industry in California. We can get ridRead More of all the farming if you like, that would make you happy I am sure! Then you can get all your fruit and veggys from China or third world countries. Oh, and they use DDT and have no regulations at all. You might GLOW at night but at least you won't have dust in your home. Or better than that, why don't you move to tract homes far far away from those rotton Farmers. Too bad there are people like you who love to demonize an industry that is known as the best in the world!!

Brenda January 21, 2014 at 05:11 pm
This is appalling in the USA for gods sake. I know that 1 in 4 FAMILIES live below poverty levelRead More also. It is not even fathomable that in this country we would allow t his to happen or children to go hungry, without warm clothes, elderly to die alone in a little apt because they cant afford to turn on the heat or the AC; nor any agencies that go to check on elderly who have no one else, our mentally ill, those addicted, be homeless, without transportation, without jobs etc. etc. right? But we can give billions away to other countries for their catastropies, to supposedly fight their drug wars, for food, military vehicles, guns and equipment to fight their own people, and again the list goes on and on and on and of course as we also know, those who do need the money dont get it, the crooked government does. Yet we continue to give our hard earned bucks away on a daily basis. We have not even a third probably of the aid programd we used to have to help our own, thus the reason why we did not have these starving in our own country years ago. We leave our own farmers, ranchers to fight tooth and nail for a penny, and end up loosing everything they have (where their family has provided food items to the USA people for years and years, generations) to who? Back to the banks and government. While we give so much food to other countries our own people are hungry? Why do we all just sit back and let it continue? Hell our movie stars, and singers, performers who raise millions and m illions, and put in hours and hours, and hire their own crews to build in other countries should be DOING THAT IN THEIR OWN DAMN COUNTRY WHO MADE THEM RICH. Why do we just sit here people and accept that a mother with children is so poor? Then we wonder why they turn to prostitution, to abusive men, to drugs to numb the pain? There is no wondering, we have let our ignorant people put into office bring our country to a big fat nothing.

Francis Soyer: Point of information if you will. When one is going to install the new LED light bulbRead More which would be the preferred choice? The MiracleLED Un-Edison 60W Equivalent Frost or the Samsung A19 60-Watt Warm White. From the knowlege you demonstrated above I thought I would ask an expert.
Francis Soyer January 30, 2014 at 07:27 am
Vincent - Honestly I'm not too familiar with either product. Neither is an "industryRead More standard" name brand. Samsung is obviously know for their electronics, I don't know if they are actually manufacturing their LED's or using somebody else's, but Samsung generally has good products. MiracleLED, unknown??? However I did a quick search on both. Samsung: 10.8 watts, 810 lumens, 27,000k, 15,000 hrs, 130 degree beam angle. MiracleLED: 5 watts, 500 lumens, 27,000k, 30,000 hrs, they claim "360 degree lighting" but do not list an actual beam angle, but it would certainly be much greater then the 130 on the Samsung. I would look at application first. Can you see the bulb in the fixture you are putting it in? If so the Samsung's heat sink is very visible and if it were in a glass fixture that I could clearly see the bulb I wouldn't want to see the Samsung bulb, I would pick the MiracleLED even though just by first appearance the Samsung looks like it is made better. I think the only application I would use the Samsung would be in a can light as the light output is more directional especially if I needed more light as the Samsung puts out 60% more light. Both seem to be priced at about $16 each. The more recognized LED name brands are Cree & Nochia, also, GE, Phillips & Sylvania make them as well. I like the "Cree 60W equivalent soft white (2700K) A19 dimmable LED light bulb", sold at Home Depot & Lowes.

don't expect employers to call you back. most managers are busy and they can forget things. callRead More them a few days after the interview. good news is their are jobs... if you want to work retail for 8 bucks/hour. who can live on that? hard to not take it personally. I applied for a driver at pizza hut... was turned down via email, no meeting, no interview... I have lots of work experience, no criminal record, no accidents or points... no drug issues... how can they turn me down based on a resume and email? my age I'm guessing.

Jamie, I completely support spending tax payer dollars on audits! It is a small price to pay toRead More ensure that the Americans are not getting robbed via acts of fraud. I work in government, at the state level. I personally know of fraudulent hiring practices that have occurred within our agency, including someone stacking the deck by having two family members of a job applicant seated on a job interview panel. That is blatant corruption. Thank God for "snitches"! Such corruption is even more likely where profit is involved, thus the reported misuse of H1b visas. Audits to prevent fraud and corruption are needed. Yes, they cost, but in the long run, it is money well spent.
