But there's a catch - some of the U.S. based workers who construct the fish tanks and raise the fish are sometimes pay $4 an hour...and sometimes $0.74 an hour.

How is that legal?

Simple. They're prison inmates...

In a predictable way, everyone is rushing to complete negative reviews of Dr. Walter Palmer's River Bluff Dental. But at least Jeff Withers was creative about it. The reference to a receptionist may or may not refer to a 2009 sexual harassment allegation. http://www.startribune.com/zimbabwe-2-to-appear-in-court-for-killing-cecil-the-lion/318828251/

There was nobody in the parking lot so it appears that there is immediate availability for an appointment. I don't have my insurance paperwork in order, but I have heard that having legit paperwork is not important anyway. It appears that he saves his patients money by not employing a receptionist, because nobody is answering the phone today. I anticipate having a trophy smile that will attract a lot of attention.

I was going to offer a comment on this, but +Steve Douglas beat me to the punch. This is what he said:

"People, this is tech journalism. The only thing better than getting the scoop on the next big thing is prophesying the demise of a big thing. Why? Because nothing in tech is forever; very little makes it past the ten year mark. Say it enough times and it will eventually be true. And the resulting "I told you so" apparently gives the tech journalist credibility.

"Let's see a real predicted timeline for the phaseout/shutdown. I'll screenshot it. Then after that point we'll have a better idea who has a functioning crystal ball."

And when Douglas says "very little," he means very little. AOL and MySpace (which, despite public perception, are still very much alive years later) are the exceptions rather than the rule. FriendFeed almost made the ten-year mark, but it spent 5+ years just sitting there with no feature additions. 
 
Anyone who is naive enough to think this recent news (http://googleblog.blogspot.com/2015/07/everything-in-its-right-place.html) is good for Google+ needs a reality check: This is the end.

Here is exactly what is going to happen to Google+ -- and I say this as someone who has watched many a community die/service get sunset:

1. The promised "focus" on the product will never materialize. Instead, staffers who were focused on parts of Google+ will continue to get moved to other projects. 
2. New features are not going to come. In fact, it's going to take even longer for bugs to get fixed, again, because no one is actually working on it.
3. Google will slowly start to retire the brand. They'll start by slowing or shutting down signups. 
4. The product will be sunset and users will be encouraged to backup their data using Google Takeout.

It's over guys. You can either accept reality now or continue to use a service that, thanks to its official de-coupling -- is now seen as truly non-essential to Google. Google will let it exist for only so long, but at a certain point, they will retire it. Google Reader died. This will too.

Strong predictions (others have already made similar ones) but it's still a guessing game until the curtain is lifted on key metrics that Google follows. I don't get attached to a specific platform and can adjust to something that is more useful.

Misleading headline, especially since Barkley explicitly says "doesn't make him a bad guy."

When you think about Kobe's background, the description is apt. An American in Italy, a high school grad in a locker room full of grown men - his experiences alone would lead him toward a solitary outlook. Add to that his laser focus, and anyone who expected Bryant to suddenly pal around with the kids is misguided.
Chuck weighs in on Bryant’s isolated nature and silence toward his new teammates.

So I was at radiolovers.com, and I was surprised to see "Blondie" and "Breakfast Club" mixed in with this list of old 1940s radio shows. Then again, for twenty-somethings, Deborah Harry's group and the Brat Pack movie would probably seem like ancient history.

(Yes, I know. But I had actually never heard of the radio show "Breakfast Club" before, and now that newspapers are fading away, I rarely hear the word "Blondie" and think of a monstrous sandwich.)

So, which major US mens' sports league will be the first to have a female head coach?

My prediction is that it will be in a sport in which there is active female professional participation.

In other words, basketball and soccer before, say, American football.

Somehow I suspect that +Steven Ertelt may have something to say about this poster...but that it would have nothing to do with "the U.S. gun control debate."

The fallacy in Jeffrey Imms' argument is the idea that some despicable acts should not be satirized, but others are OK.
 
Can't say I didn't see it coming.

But really? Over this??
We've joked about the SJW's coming for Mel Brooks next. We've poked fun at how absurd it would be to retroactively deem the king of "offensive" to be too offensive. Enter, 2015. In the film "The Producers," two Broadway producers realize that they can make more

+Eric Nicolas, the problem with such a list is that it would change from generation to generation, if not more frequently. The 1960s not only saw "The Producers," but also saw "Hogan's Heroes" - starring Werner Klemperer, John Banner, Robert Clary, and others.
