Good morning.

General Motors and the UAW are going to start “talks” in September/October. Why wait, start them now!
He clearly doesn't understand how UAW labor contracts are negotiated. Yet another thing he has no clue about.

It'll be interesting to see if/how Barra/GM tries to defuse the union slam..
Especially if Barra never said it.

At least 50% probability that his conversation with Mary Barra happened entirely inside his head.

Re: Plane Crash - Jet Crash

I think the reality is that Trump announced the FAA's grounding of the MAX, though he might have failed to mention anyone other than himself being involved.

This is actually a bit different than the "donation" route.. this involves actual bribes, as well as SAT/ACT test fraud..

Re: Plane Crash - Jet Crash

In the other (unrelated) crash-related news, many countries have now grounded the 737MAX.. not the US so far, however.

Still not clear the Ethiopia crash is related to the LionAir crash.. waiting on FDR data to get some clarity on that..

So I got an electric smoker. Might have mentioned that earlier. This past weekend I did smoked brisket, somewhat of a cheater because I started with corned beef. Rinsed the corned beef and then soaked it in water for 12 hours (with about 2 cups of orange juice) to get rid of the excess salt. Took it...

Re: Plane Crash - Jet Crash

The FDR and CVR have been recovered.

Hopefully in a day or two the investigators will get a preliminary read and have some clue as to whether these aircraft need to be grounded until things get sorted out.

My problem with mucking with DST today is that millions (maybe billions) of computer based systems will end up screwed up, and they will never get updated.

I'm not talking about your laptop. I'm talking things like factory automation devices, embedded controllers, etc..

getting rid of DST will be a fustercluck that will make Y2K look like a turd in the kid's sandbox.

DST is stupid, but leave it the f'k alone.

IMHO, of course.

(The clock settings are part of the built-in GPS. The built-in GPS uses a DVD drive. Which has been broken for years.)
