“We at Apex Roofing & Restoration are truly heartbroken by the senseless death of a minor at a job site in 2019,” a spokesperson for the company said. “The tragic incident occurred when a subcontractor’s worker brought his sibling to a worksite without Apex’s knowledge or permission.”

That's why they do this subcontractor shit, not just as an excuse to deny the people who do their work benefits but to deflect blame whenever someone is injured/dies.

The latest penalty of $117,175 comes from the Wage and Hour Division, but in December 2019, the Occupational Safety and Health Administration also cited Apex Roofing $159,118 after it said the company exposed employees to fall hazards.

In a citation, OSHA officials said employees working nearly 50 feet above the ground didn’t have safety ropes and weren’t properly trained.

Turns out they have a whole history of safety violations surprised-pika

I'm all for shitting on lib media, but please verify claims before repeating them. NPR updated their article over 10 hours ago to report on his motivations.

IRS Could Collect $561 Billion From Rich Tax Cheats—Unless ​GOP Guts Funding ( www.commondreams.org )

The Internal Revenue Service says it could collect around $560 billion largely from rich tax cheats and big corporations over the next decade—as long as congressional Republicans don't succeed in clawing back a recent funding increase that allowed the agency to ramp up enforcement....

The IRS tried to get me to pay 5 grand in taxes on a forgiven loan that never even existed to begin with. Like they even gave me an account number, I called up the bank (who I'm fully aware I've never borrowed money from) and they couldn't find anything either. No amount of "this loan never existed, I spoke to the bank who confirms this loan never existed, I'm aware of all of my debt and I'm 100% positive I've never borrowed from them, what the fuck are you even talking about" would convince them. Finally I asked them to send me their documents supporting the loan, evidently that was enough and they've since dropped the issue. Still had to fight them for five years on this bullshit.

I'm not rich either, when you factor in my student loans I have a negative net worth.

“It wasn’t directed towards the discussion. I was having a discussion with my daughter. I apologize … extremely,” he said. “And it should not be reflected on the person that was talking at the time.”

It was totally an accident and meant for something else, which is why I immediately resigned.

Do cops really think everyone else is as dumb as they are?

If people are driving too fast on a road then the road is badly designed. Speed cameras are a bandage covering up the problem of shit infrastructure.

Lowering the design speed of roads alone is never going to stop drivers in a hurry from driving dangerously fast

Why wouldn't it? If drivers feel unsafe speeding down a road then they simply won't speed, rendering speed cameras unnecessary. If you see a speed bump ahead of you aren't you going slow down?

What is the likelihood that any name on that list is going to suffer any consequences? I'm giving it a solid "I'll believe it when it happens."

The program fades, the familiar grid of the holodeck fills your vision, and your life outside the simulation quickly returns to you. You step outside into the corridor and see your buddy Lieutenant Ross. Capitalism? Genocide? Climate change? What are you talking about? Come on, we're about to go make first contact with a new civilization.

They can if they figure out they're in a simulation. See: Moriarty, Professor

Reminds me of the time in a reddit thread someone asked why the Enterprise never used shuttle bay one and Wil Wheaton chimed in with "one time Worf got drunk off his forehead on Romulan ale and took a giant Klingon dump in the middle of shuttle bay one and we haven't quite been able to get the smell out since" and I've accepted this as canon since.

What I'm saying is if either Alexander Siddig or Andrew Robinson suggest that Bashir and Garak might have hooked up at least once it's going to be official canon forever no matter how much Trek writers try to deny it.

Edit: https://www.thestranger.com/slog/2021/07/12/59013281/star-treks-first-gay-shipmates-the-star-crossed-romance-of-garak-and-bashir

And finally, last year — two decades after the series ended — the actors who played Garak and Bashir reunited for readings of fan-written scripts, including one on which their characters are married.

Good enough for me lmao

They have the ability to pronounce 'human' correctly (e.g. "A human drink. It's called root beer"). They choose to deliberately mispronounce it as an intimidation tactic.

Then you have the ones with anime girls aggressively hitting on the anime boys but they’re usually minors and/or blood relatives.
