Jim Schrempp A short graphical presentation of data on wealth distribution in the US.

Animation: It has been the rallying cry of the Occupy movement for the past two months - but is the US really split 99% v 1%?

B 60 minutes had fun last Sunday with a few Republicans and Democrats about suspious timing of some stock trades that smelled of insider trading. Quite an advantage when you know which way the wind is blowing in Congress for pending legislation.

November 14, 2011 at 10:29 am
B Your post motivated me go with Texas Roadhouse ribeye to go tonight. THis will be a most visit next time you are out.
November 14, 2011 at 8:36 pm
Jim Schrempp@Jon - An old analog crock pot with a new PID temperature controller. Cooked the steak at 133 degrees for two hours then torched it for color. This is the second time and the best steaks we've had in years. Certainly better than Craftsteak in Vegas.
November 15, 2011 at 8:15 am

Jim SchremppA bit disappointed with Macks. The ribs were certainly meaty, but not very smokey. I wonder if they boil or steam them. Juicy meat, but watery juicy. Sauce just poured on after the fact. Corn bread dense and chewy. Mac n Cheese grainy. Still, I ate it.
November 5, 2011 at 8:43 am
DI like the corn bread and mac and cheese at Lilly Maes over on Coleman...there BBQ is not as good as their fried chicken though. Just my opinion

October 29, 2011 at 8:28 pm

Jim Schrempp Full flight and some geezer spreads his coat out in the overhead bin. "Don't squeeze that coat." he says to someone trying to stow a bag. What a putz.
October 28, 2011 at 11:37 am Cal Poly, Friends of Friends; Except: D   , Ray T , Bob Hunt
B Makes me mad and I wasn't even there. What are options? Squeeze it anyhow? Throw it in his face? Probably no good options except to call a flight attendant.
October 28, 2011 at 12:05 pm
J Similar to the folks that put up their own bag then close the door to try to pretend it's full.
October 28, 2011 at 12:12 pm
J Then there are the folks that try to put in bags that don't fit knowing that the flight attendant will then check them for free.

October 28, 2011 at 12:16 pm
J Airlines that charge f to check a bag so that everyone tries to bring everything they own on board the plane.
October 28, 2011 at 12:18 pm

October 28, 2011 at 12:54 pm
SI think you can technically 'wad up' a coat without 'squeezing' it.
October 28, 2011 at 1:19 pm
Jim SchremppI really hit a nerve with this. In the end the young guy said "oh no" and jammed his bag in there. I thought there might be fireworks on landing but nothing happened.
October 28, 2011 at 2:51 pm
Mark Did the young guy say "oh no" as in "oh no?" as in "oh no? you think I'm not gonna squeeze it?" ?
October 28, 2011 at 3:13 pm
Sor like 'oh no you don't (you old geezer!)'
October 28, 2011 at 3:17 pm
M It's become almost standard for the flight attendants to say something like "please put your bag in on its side / wheels out / etc. and please put bags in first and then lay coats and other soft items on top of them".
October 28, 2011 at 3:32 pm
D I would've just said "oops sorry" and crammed my bag in.
October 28, 2011 at 5:21 pm
Jim Schrempp@Doug - Hah. That's pretty much how it went.
October 28, 2011 at 9:16 pm
M A friend of mine was boarding a flight somewhere in The South (or maybe Texas - whatever) and people had put their bags into the bin sloppily so he rearranged the bags (putting the bags on their sides and generally making them fit in the space more efficiently) to make room for his own bag. When he was almost finished he heard the young woman behind him say (in her best Southern Belle accent) "And here I had thought that gentlemanly behavior was a thing of the past.". She appeared to be fit and had no apparent disabilities, and she seemed to be pushing her carry-on wheelie bag in his direction. He laughed at her and proceeded, as planned, to put his bag in the space he had created for himself :-)

September 23, 2011 at 3:29 pm
Jim SchremppWe could do one. Is the top detached? And what if I screw it up?
September 23, 2011 at 4:01 pm
J The top can be detached. If you screw it up we'll have a table with some of it's top missing. It wasn't expensive anyway.

Assembly time...

Jim Schrempp Netflix, wow, what a punishing market ride. Why split their two businesses? I wonder if this is a possible explanation... A DVD rental company can buy DVDs and rent them to anyone under the first-sale doctrine. A streaming business needs to get licenses from the content owners to stream their content. The "old" Netflix is both, and that became a problem.

In January 2010 it was reported that Netflix agreed to delay shipping newly released DVDs for a time - in exchange a certain content owner would license the Netflix streaming business. Netflix DVD customers complained that the newest DVD releases were not available from Netflix DVD for 30 days. The DVD-only competition does not have this 30 day restriction.

With the split of business lines Qwikster can ship newly released DVDs without any waiting period; it can run unfettered by negotiations over streaming licenses. New DVD releases might be available on Qwikster the day after they are released to retail sales. In other words, Qwikster customers might get a *better* experience than the old Netflix DVD service.

The Netflix streaming service is now able to negotiate licenses with the content owners without the complication of a DVD business. How will the new streaming-only Netflix compete against other streaming-only companies? Perhaps Netflix management feels they can beat the competition with a superior user experience. Maybe not superior communication, but delivery of video is what we really all pay for.

Just looking for some rational explanation.

September 22, 2011 at 6:21 am
B Thanks Jim. The move seems less bone headed now with your explanation. Nevertherless, seems like a bad PR situation for Netflix.

September 22, 2011 at 9:26 am
Jim SchremppNow some speculation on the WSJ that Amazon wants to buy the Netflix streaming business but they don't want the DVD business - the physical DVD distribution warehouses would expose Amazon to state sales tax. Interesting idea. I like mine better.
September 22, 2011 at 11:10 am
J We could apply Occam's Razor to this discussion. Is it likely that they have some nefarious complicated secret scheme or could they just be stupid?
September 22, 2011 at 11:26 am
Jim SchremppIn today's LA Times: "...some studios that make Netflix.. wait until 28 days after a DVD goes on sale before they can offer it for rent want to lengthen that delay. They believe such a move will encourage consumers to pay more to buy or rent a movie digitally." Interesting. Once Netflix is split into two companies these studios won't have any leverage over the Qwikster DVD business.

Jim Schrempp If Rick Perry and his advisers don't believe in evolution, then we should not believe anything about his economic program. Clearly his thought process is not fact based. We need economic programs that are effective; not ones that someone spins up based on weird theories of how the economy works. Republicans need to bring out a candidate with some real smarts.

D Jon Huntsman claims to believe in evolution.
September 10, 2011 at 2:08 pm
J Most macro economics is not fact based anyway. They like to do some pseudo math that doesn't actually add up. This is why most universities group econ with the arts and not with math. But, Perry does seem like yet another whacko politician. I have a friend though who believes that many politicians just act stupid in order to get elected. Interesting hypothesis don't you think?
September 10, 2011 at 3:05 pm
P @D : Huntsman seems the best of a bad lot (and Romney might be passable too) but I'm still not happy when people say they "believe in" evolution. Evolution is not a belief system. It is a natural process that is continually happening regardless of what Perry or Huntsman believe.

@John: That is an interesting hypothesis, though I'm not sure how you would test it. It's a sad commentary on American culture that this is even plausible. However, I'm still pretty sure Sarah Palin really is that dumb.

August 2, 2011 at 4:37 pm
Jim Schrempp@Chuck, My biggest concern was over the automatic Picasa integration. I have ALL my photos in Picasa now, and mostly marked private. I use Picasa auto tag all the time. If someone is tagged in one photo, then they can see the whole album. Some of my albums are date based. For example, if "June 2002". If a person is tagged in a picnic photo from early June 2002, then they can also peruse all the photos of my grandfather's funeral - not what I intended. With FB I am certain which photos will be seen by others; with G+ I couldn't be sure.
August 3, 2011 at 5:50 am
C I am not a Picasa user but it is a good warning sign that there may be other surprises somewhere under the hood. There is always a balance between ease of use & features and privacy. Sounds like Google got the mix wrong on this one.

M -> Jim, I am hoping we can take back some seats, keep O and make some serious headway on progressive issues.

Can you imagine what Dems would have been called if they tried a stunt like that (and yes, I do know a some Dems are mad about Libya, too)? 'Terrorists' or 'Traitors' comes to mind.] My soul HOPE for the party is that their spines grow back and they no longer care about 'taking the high road'. I want them to get down and dirty if that is what it takes to get their way. Politics is just a bar fight right now -- I don't like it, but that IS the way it is. To ignore that fact is to get a drink thrown in your face and your ass kicked. If you cannot handle it, do not go in to the metaphorical bar in the first place. Ta-dummmmmmmmmmmm! =)

The house was built in 1930 for Rhoda Rindge Adamson and Merritt Huntley Adamson, based on a Mediterranean Revival design by Stiles O. Clements of the architectural firm of Morgan, Walls & Clements. The residence and estate is within the Malibu Lagoon State Beach Park. The Adamson House was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1977 and designated as a California Historical Landmark in 1985.See More
