Only 4 percent of adults and 4 percent of children suffer peanut allergies ...

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 09:27 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.

Just another Obamanation. A disgusting president.
Stephen D. Clark January 18, 2014 at 10:03 am
Baloney. The "disgusting" president was the one who falsely alleged a threat to theRead More national security of the United States in order to dishonestly justify the Invasion of Iraq, which condemned 4,486 American armed forces members (http://icasualties.org/) to futile deaths and sparked a conflagration that has consumed the lives of what has been scientifically estimated as well over a million Iraqis (http://www.globalresearch.ca/new-analysis-confirms-1-million-iraq-casualties/7950).

don't expect employers to call you back. most managers are busy and they can forget things. callRead More them a few days after the interview. good news is their are jobs... if you want to work retail for 8 bucks/hour. who can live on that? hard to not take it personally. I applied for a driver at pizza hut... was turned down via email, no meeting, no interview... I have lots of work experience, no criminal record, no accidents or points... no drug issues... how can they turn me down based on a resume and email? my age I'm guessing.

Jamie, I completely support spending tax payer dollars on audits! It is a small price to pay toRead More ensure that the Americans are not getting robbed via acts of fraud. I work in government, at the state level. I personally know of fraudulent hiring practices that have occurred within our agency, including someone stacking the deck by having two family members of a job applicant seated on a job interview panel. That is blatant corruption. Thank God for "snitches"! Such corruption is even more likely where profit is involved, thus the reported misuse of H1b visas. Audits to prevent fraud and corruption are needed. Yes, they cost, but in the long run, it is money well spent.

How about not re-electing any more incumbents? Remember the D.R.I.P campaign? Don't ReelectRead More Incumbent Politicians.

Sorry folks but I just don't think it's fair to burden future generations with the debt ofRead More quantitative easing. I starting selling of quite a bit of my stocks for more tangible assets and most likely with sell of a fair amount more next week. I wish the best of luck to all of you.

The shortage comes from doctors not accepting Obamacare in a crazy principal called profit. I knowRead More it's a foreign term to liberals. So those newly insured will have less doctors to use their new fancy Obamacare at. Thanks Obama voters!

Uncle D, that is a line from the movie "Cool Hand Luke". Spoken by the warden. GreatRead More movie.
The Other Response December 18, 2013 at 02:00 pm
Jay, let's go deeper: Say you run a small Mom and Pop store in your town. You make enough money toRead More live on, and your 2 employees stay afloat as well (they both work other jobs, too). You are able to pay them the current minimum wage, but no benefits as they are both 'part-time' employees. Now then, say I work at a huge multi-billion dollar conglomerate like GE, and I am in charge of Human Resources. When the government comes in and tells me that I must raise my minimum wage to whatever, I don't care because while I need to be fiscally aware, I work for a multi-billion dollar company. I probably lose thousands a year on stolen office supplies. *shrugs* But for YOU, as a small business person, that forced raise in min. wage will have repercussions, won't it? So here's what I am thinking: If Company X shows a profit of over, say, 10 million dollars yearly, they should raise their minimum wage accordingly, to whatever they wish, provided it is in line with Federal guidelines. But Company Y, a much smaller company, would only be forced to raise their minimum wage enough that does not threaten the life of the company. Each must have a minimum wage according to their profit margin. I am not explaining it well, sorry, but I hope you see where I am going.
