Ti chiedono una consulenza.
Fai un preventivo dettagliato.
Chiedono uno sconto, senza averlo chiaramente letto.
Rifiuti la consulenza.
Non lavoro gratis e non faccio sconti.
Se mai lo sconto te lo offro io, se ritengo.
E sono felicissimo di lavorare gratis se è a fin di bene, per qualche attività benefica, ma per un'azienda assolutamente no.
Il lavoro si paga, il lavoro si rispetta.
Nel lontano 2007, al termine del PhD, avendo terminato la borsa di studio, ma essendo ancora in attesa di discutere la tesi (paradossi del sistema italiano), trovai lavoro in una nota società internazionale, molto vicina al mio campo di ricerca.

#Letr2Jil – JUST ONE TEXT... starts now.
1. My dear Jil, I think the seeming complications in this relationship are being driven by your insecurities. #Letr2Jil
2. It seems the things you’re worried about are nothing to this man. He doesn’t care. For instance, you’re worried about whether you’re fine enough for him. (He had a beautiful girlfriend). But he wants you. Which means you’re beautiful enough for him. #Letr2Jil

Ladies, grab a pen & paper! Here's a list of what most men want.

.........THREAD
1. Appreciation.

He sacrifices and does his best to make you happy - always remember to say "Thank you!" Don't discredit him comparing him to your friend's man.
2. Understanding.

There will be times that he's financially down. Know that it won't be like that forever. Motivate him til things get right.

Can You Be a 'Scientist' but Reject the Scientific Method?

Climate activists at the American Meteorological Society’s annual meeting in January in Phoenix, Arizona admitted they are failing to persuade people of threat of global warming.

americanthinker.com/articles/2019/…
@cspanwj There is absolutely zero evidence of man-made global warming -- none whatsoever. "The reproducibility of published experiments is the foundation of science. No reproducibility -- no science." Just because one can buy a lab coat for $46.39, that doesn't make them a scientist.
@cspanwj The modern world was built upon the "Scientific Method"

Step 1. Make observations.
Step 2. Form a hypothesis.
Step 3. Design an experiment. Step 4. Perform an experiment.
Step 5. Analyze results and draw a conclusion.
Step 6. Repeat the Experiment.

As we all know by now, the super-cool rover Opportunity is now dead. That's really sad, & I'd like to take a moment and see what this little gal (dunno why, but somehow I'm sure it's a she) has actually done for humanity. Because it's done a lot.
So here goes. Officially called MER-1 but known as Opportunity, or Oppy, it was sent to the Red Planet 15 years ago - launched on 8 July 2003 & landed on Mars on 25 January 2004.
As @mikamckinnon writes wired.co.uk/article/mars-r…,

When Spirit and Opportunity landed on Mars in 2004, Tim McGraw was crooning:

“Someday I hope you get the chance
To live like you were dying
Like tomorrow was a gift
And you've got eternity
To think about
What you'd do with it”

I love listening to my uncle’s banking war stories. A particular one I remember was when they were trying to land a very wealthy man who owned fishing trawlers and a retail empire in Lagos. He finally got an appointment to see him one evening as the guy was always very busy....
...they saw people coming to deliver their daily cash sales and others like relatives come to make requests for money and the guy gave them from the cash without counting first to verify. They immediately knew he had an accountability problem and couldn’t lend to him until sorted
He was looking to buy new trawlers and they were a merchant bank not a retail bank. They needed someone else to solve his retail problems and first they recommended an accountant. The guy insisted on having a female accountant as he didn’t trust guys. He needed a whole team.

[1] The 3 Factor Fama French Model (FF) is an extension on the Capital Asset Pricing Model which shows that the return on a security is sensitive to the market factor that affects all securities in the market. The sensitivity to this factor is measured by Beta.
[2] FF Model says that the return is not only determined by a single market factor, but also to its exposure to 2 more factors--> Small stocks and Value stocks. These factors add risk and hence increase the return of the stock as a trade off.
[3] We can use this model to price securities by calculating the premium we would receive for investing in a value stock (rather than a low book value stock) and a small stock (rather than a large size stock).

Politics

1) More from Zen Master on a court challenge (this is pretty encouraging).

2) I am no lawyer. Getting this from Zen Master who has yet to be wrong on all things legal. Hope I don't flub the interpretation.

3) As I said yesterday, there are only three circuits who might . . .
3) contd . . . hear a challenge to a Declaration of Emergency, 9th, 5th, and 10th. But a challenge can only start in a state where wall construction is going up (TX). While not unanimous, the 5th Circuit is an R-dominated court.

4) However--and this is where it gets good . . .
4) contd. . . before any court can hear a case it must be "ripe." For ex., DeWine in OH has said he will sign the "Heartbeat Bill" & PP will challenge that, but PP can't challenge until he actually signs it.

NO CASE VS THE DECLARATION IS RIPE UNTIL THE MONEY IS SPENT.

On Kaepernick/Reid settlement, keep that in mind when you hear that the NFL will play anyone if they can win. No they won't, and no they don't have to. That teams chose to do this over kneeling rather than abuse let's you know what they really find unacceptable.
It's also a reminder that while players are told to stick to sports, owners are incredibly political and act in much more effective ways. Just look at the list of NFL owners who donated $1 million to Trump's inaugural committee, which is now under investigation.
Ultimately the gag order on all parties as a result of the Kap/Reid settlement does a disservice to fans *and other players* who deserve to know whether the NFL colluded in this case.

Dear citizens of the Federal Republic of Nigeria,

As you know, the Independent National Electoral Commission has announced a postponement of the elections until 23 February and 9 March respectively.
The Buhari administration has had more than enough time and money to prepare for these elections and the Nigerian people were poised and ready to perform their civic responsibility by voting in the elections earlier scheduled for Saturday, 16 February, 2019.
This postponement is obviously a case of the hand of Esau but the voice of Jacob. By instigating this postponement, the Buhari administration hopes to disenfranchise the Nigerian electorate in order to ensure that turn out is low on the rescheduled date.
