I need a ruling on this

I have a pretty interesting commission case heading to trial next month. Hoping to lay down some good law for employees in PA in this one. Commissioned employees are left remarkably exposed in PA.

I need a ruling on this

You are the only lawyer I know @Shyster My firm doesn't do that sort of work, but I think @Kraftster might. :thumb: Do enough to know my way around it. @meow Not legal advice, etc. A random $700 offer seems a little arbitrary. Setting the fairness of the offer aside, without knowing more, signing s...

There is definitely a conservative amplification of this to appeal to the fears of middle-of-the-road voters in the vein of "this could be you." But I do think this is spreading to dangerous places. Take the case of Pinker, a linguist. Harvard professor who has always struck me as nothing if not in...

One could argue you're just as narrow in your scope. You're focused on black killing each other without taking into consideration why it's happening, which is what the whole discussion was revolving around. You're not even attempting to entertain a notion that there's been generational cause and ef...

Bottom line, neither the penalties and obstacles for bad luck nor the rewards for good luck should be as great as they are. We should aim to cancel the effect that luck has on the quality of one's life. On average, BIPOC are (unquestionably) more likely to face bad luck. You can cherry pick unlucky...

The whole "black on black crime" thing is a red herring to distract from the actual issue that is causing/has caused the violence and the turning toward it in the first place. When black people can't/couldn't get jobs via legitimate ventures because of the system in place, how do you expect that to...

Anyone use Tavour or know anything about how well it works in PA? https://about.tavour.com/ Suprisingly, PA is not one of the three states on Tavour's "do not ship" list. They will ship here, but you can only get a 12 pack a month and you can't have more than one sixer of any brand per shipment. So...

Put together a couple jars of the Brad Leone-recommended honey garlic ferment a little less than two weeks ago now. Really liking it. Favorite application so far is on pizza. Going to make a dressing using both the honey and the garlic at some point this week.

He needs to buy whatever time he can, be it a day, a week, a month, whatever. In that time he buys, Biden could commit a material blunder, the woke left could become even more of a lightning rod for negative attention of swing voters, etc. In 2020, a week is a long time.

Lawsons is in Pittsburgh now? Didn’t realize they branched that far out. Yeah, in the last couple months. Frost also just arrived (maybe some Alchemist could be next...). Allagash is back now too. Sloop is the other recent addition. Considering the amazing local scene, great time to be a beer drink...

799462 I’m not an expert on the science, but I’ve heard a lot of brewers comment on the lack of shelf stability of hazy IPA. There are places trying to find ways to make it more stable, but to me, this is a style that’s best consumed locally at the source. In that regard it’s kind of fun to travel ...

The M43 was from May and wasn’t kept cold, so maybe that’s the issue...

My drinking has definitely increased in these ...

I’ve been making up for all you slackers. Drinking a good bit of beer during the pandemic between using brewery runs as an excuse to get out and drinking down the cellar. Happy to continue to do my part to even things out.
