    Gen Z in the workplace Article

    "Freedoms Forge" deals with WW2 production but gives really good character back round on the big names. Anyway----If you think about it, back then, after around 10 years of a depression anyone who could snag a job was not going to do anything to lose it---there was virtually know security net...

    Gen Z in the workplace Article

    Hoover Dam >>> Henry Kaiser >>> Six companies. After the Dam came WW2 and Henry showed them a new way to build ships, a steel mill, and run a health care system. (yeah I know..some of the ships broke in half)

    Joe Biden calls for tripling of tariffs on Chinese steel

    China has been playing the long game which is measured in decades while U.S. trade policy seems to run on a 4 year cycle.

    Ot...ship hits bridge

    The shop space I rent is just a block or so over from the complex which is surrounded by a pretty rundown area. One thing for sure....the Johnson family does an amazing job of preserving the Wright buildings and grounds. Worth mentioning, in a separate building, they have a replica on display...

    Gen Z in the workplace Article

    Think the thread got started based on a link to an article. As far as generations complaining about the ones who follow....nothing new about that. Taxes support basic public educaton which is required by law. How all that turns out is pretty much a "your experience may vary". But in any...

    Gen Z in the workplace Article

    Something to note is while assuming most of us accept the fact the paying taxes, which provide the funds for public schools is something we are stuck with, some may question the how the money is spent and if the results are acceptable...... considering in most states your paying untill the day...

    Ot...ship hits bridge

    Read the article you linked. Sounds like they worked the natigational end of things based on the loss of power. Wonder if they spent time on the actual design/function of the ship systems outside of steering the ship without power. As the article states: "school spokesperson stressed that the...

    Ot...ship hits bridge

    "Things only break when you are in a tight situation"...seems that way but often it's what the operators did, or didn't do to get into that tight situation. Unless it's already been done, will be interesting to see if whoever leads the investigation can do simulations of the event. Was it a...

    Joe Biden calls for tripling of tariffs on Chinese steel

    "The place tariffs are going to really show in US prices is consumer goods." "We have steel mills. We dont have shoe, or cell phone, or blender factories…" All really good points. Best guess is the cheap stuff will just get imported from some other country...

    Joe Biden calls for tripling of tariffs on Chinese steel

    Yep...PR thing, like delaying the Nippon/U.S. Steel deal. Pennsylvania labor votes needed to win next election no matter what it costs others.

    Shirking work is nothing new....there was even a movement over 100 years ago which not surprisingly is somewhat active today.....

    Joe Biden calls for tripling of tariffs on Chinese steel

    Likely many will be looking South to Mexico or sourcing from other Pacific Rim vendors that, for the present, are not a target of tariffs.

    Boeing Assisted Suicide

    Guess that's why they are marketing a hybrid which has a 4 cylinder gas engine as well as the expected electric motors. Interent says a 520 miles range with a full tank. They should probably add "your milage may vary"? Not much of a EV, Hybrid, or even pickup person anymore but automotive...

    Ongoing unrest in Russia

    If the "context" is to provide a deterence from attack then most likeliy the DMZ between South and North Korea is a good example. Wide enough to make it tough to dig tunnels. Also covered at one time with land mines and anti-tank obstacles...all things that are currently used in Ukraine by both...
