How do we know that Michaels, like Target before it, are not doing this themselves to get everyoneRead More to give up what little freedom we have left? Maybe News12 will investigate? No, that's right... News12 is just a glorified police blotter.

Just so everyone knows, chip and pin would not prevent a breach like this, it would just make itRead More difficult to reproduce a physical card. The real answer is prevent breaches like this is uninterrupted end to end encryption between the PED/swipe and the processor. So many retailers allow the credit card data to flow within their respective networks to be decrypt/re-encrypt 1 or more times paving way to the methods used by malicious folks to harvest that data while in the clear, such as memory scrapers.

Maybe take it out by Homeland. I used to work by the Amy's Frozen Foods manufacturer in Santa RosaRead More and it stunk so bad when you went out side you would want to puke. Until you work or live by that foul smelling stuff you have no idea. Someone should invent how to catch the horrible smells before it leaves the buildings.

Perhaps the only solution would be to have it made outside the USA. and have the company import it,Read More problem solved. Most Americans dont like these odors that burn the eyes etc. but they are getting accustomed to ordering them in restaurants that specialize in certain ethnic foods, then they can leave eating establishment and not have to smell it anymore. I used to live near people from india that cooked with curry all the time and had to keep my clothes in plastic bags as everything in the home reeked from the Oder all the time. They were nice people but never understood why Americans found fault with their cooking smells. Perhaps this is the case here with sriracha.
It could cost Americans 20 percent more to get their bacon fixes as a deadline virus sweeps through the nation's hog barns. (Patch file photo)

When taxes are imposed on various industries then to stay in business the prices increase on theRead More consumer!

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."

the answer is to tax the CHURCHES. And tax the BUSINESSES THAT ARE OWNED BY THE CHURCHES. ArsenalRead More wouldn't work if they taxed him at 90%, but he thinks the rich would. Idiot!

My problem has always been the same with Kmart. Last week I was there looking for a garden item. IRead More went to the Garden Shop and asked where I might find that item. The employee told me it wasnt outside and I'd have to go inside the store to find that. I looked--they had nothing like that there. I came upon one male and two female employees talking together in a group and I had to ask them where I could find that item. Rather than looking for it with me or Heaven forbid finding out if they even stock that item, they all looked at each other and just shrugged, not knowing what to do, apparently. It's that lack of customer service and also lack of pricing labels on items (I was also looking for some beach towels that day) that makes a customer just give up because no one cares. How many times while checking out have you heard the cashier ask over the store PA System--"price check on register 3"? Just TOO OFTEN! To me, their customer service has always been awful and Im not surprised at all that their store is closing. I wish the best for the GOOD employees there. That part is sad.
Theflyinghorse March 20, 2014 at 11:04 pm
@Laurie your right there are some really useless employees that work at Kmart, And somethingRead More should've been done about that way before!!! Since the first day of liquidation on Sun the 16Th I have never seen such Pigs in my life, I can't say these people are Pigs Because Pigs have better manners then them!!.. It's sad to see what the human race has turned into, You people have on respect for other people or for the store or for the employees you have trashed Kmart!! You don't even know how to raise your kids, It's sad to see what the next generation is going to be like. I'm tired of hearing most of the people come in to the store and say well I can get that cheaper at Walmart, Then take your trashy self right back to Walmart that's where you've been shopping since they opened, Plus it may be cheaper but it's not made as good as what Kmart sales!! It's shocking how stupid the American people are, You put up a sign that says Liquidation Sale 10 to 20% off and the store is packed!! Kmart puts a ad out that says Sale 30 to 35% off and you get nobody shopping!! Kmart has made more money since Sun the 16Th, Then they have in the last 6 months!! The employees are working their A$$ES off, Trying to clean up the store after the trashy customers have turned it upside down. The Employees should be given a raise in pay for dealing with the trash customers and the long hours of working 5 or 6 days a week, Taking away from their family time most of them do care about their kids, husbands, wifes, girlfriends, boyfriends and their life outside of work!!

'...The Employees should be given a raise in pay for dealing with the trash customers and the longRead More hours of working 5 or 6 days a week...' ------------------------------------------------------------------------------ instead the line workers will be 'rewarded' with losing their jobs and taking the blamed for the store's closing....

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.
