Who has even heard of these stores? Didn't Aaron Bros.go under in 1987? Who wants to take the timeRead More to hack into these accounts? Dummies that shop there don't have any money! Low-brow and low income customers who bring in their 5 screaming kids ( 4 are obese!) And their parents let them terrorize the rest of the shoppers. Free babysitting while Mommy orders an extra large Slushee for Remo and his ADD. Why ? Parents weren't parented either. Or its considered cute as Jr. has his meltdown with sticky chocolate fingers ! Count me out...

Security is a deterrent not a preventative measure. There is no way to be secure from everyRead More possibility because it is impossible to even conceive of every possibility. Instead we try to secure against the threats we know of through experience and those we may anticipate through inference extrapolated from those experiences. The businesses are naturally and rightly profit driven and things that do not directly and or immediately hurt the bottom line do not get priority funding. Thieves too are profit driven though they are less regulated than business and in general face more personal risk than businesses typically do toward realizing their bottom line. Due to the actual few distinctions between the thief and business the thief must be the more resourceful of the two and thus more innovative. Security is always going to be a reactionary means of preventing theft. The proactive means to prevent theft are to accept there is no absolute security and otherwise either too expensive, too harsh, too time consuming or some combination of those. Considering how long humanity seems to have dealt with the issue, one might think we would have tried all of the available variables and figured it out sometime during the last 5000 years through trial and error. Oh wait, we have. Communities where the moral code is instilled in the population from cradle to grave coupled with punishment, justly applied, for infractions have almost zero crime and it costs them almost zero dollars. Face it folks, we're all hippy freaks living in/on a commune we call Earth. Continually spending good money over top of bad as our orthodox approach has required over the centuries has only produced more crime and or prisons. This implies more crime/prisons is the goal if you THINK.

When taxes are imposed on various industries then to stay in business the prices increase on theRead More consumer! Obamacare , gas taxes, payroll taxes, tolls, the proposed soda and candy tax , your tobacco tax is 75% of what the product really costs! Commercial Property tax increases! Do you people see what's going on here? This country is being destroyed by the Democrats! It is starting to resemble The a Soviet Union! We should change the name of this country to the USSA!

Mark, Your words are absolutely disgusting. Please do not use this comment thread as a vehicle toRead More spew your racist mentality. And for your information, food-borne illnesses come from agriculture, period. All around the world, including in the U.S. Lastly, your hatred for people of colour does not mean that you understand disease, at all. Good luck in life.

people stop going to work a couple days they would bring those prices down pretty fast.
Donald Snyder April 9, 2014 at 08:10 am
usmcboi, And what about not getting paid for it? Doesn't make much sense, does it? The betterRead More solution is to vote all of these Congressmen out who keep pulling this stuff. Isn't it ironic that Nancy Pelosi was standing at a gas station complaining about the high prices of gas when George W. Bush was in office and gas was around $2.50 a gallon but you don't hear a word from stretch face when the gas is near or at $4.00 and her beloved Barak Obama is at the helm? Could it be she has some sort of hidden agenda? There's a shock. I don't trust any politician. They lie through their teeth when they are smiling at you. That goes for city, state and federal. All are a bunch of crooks. You try and elect someone who wants to get the budget down and manage it and they get laughed out of the polling places. You voted for them, this is what you get.

there are no jobs, they're hiring vets, i'm a "vet" too bad I was too mentally ill toRead More "serve" what a joke, hire vets, hire everyone, everyone needs a job, quit being so fascist.

Good riddance! Someone should tell "Papa" Doug that the "best content andRead More information" for consumers is UNBIASED fair investigative reporting, NOT a personal one-sided political agenda. What happened to freedom of the press? We may not all agree, but unless we have open honest discussion and reporting of both sides of issues, voters cannot make informed decisions or resolve anything.

Just think how much more money they could make if they would lower their entrance fee just a bit andRead More allow more families to afford going. Then they would sell even more soda and food since there is nothing around the park for competition. I stopped going to Disneyland, Safari Park and Sea World because of those reasons. Even the year pass is getting out of hand. Just greed.

I'm curious. You saw Nancy Pelosi hanging around a gas station with reporters when the gas pricesRead More were under three dollars a gallon blaming George Bush for raising prices and hurting the American people. Now it's almost $4 and you don't hear a peep out of her because a Democrat is president. Why is that?

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.
