Like my PS said, unfortunately for our country, that was all she did - forwarding the emails instead of treating it as credible intel, but water under the bridge. HOWEVER, she needed to own the result of doing nothing as the CIA/FBI did nothing before 9-11 despite of field agent warning of unusual foreign students in flight schools etc. While the world has become more complex and there is no easy answers, she must try as Sec of State.
yahoo keeled my PS:
Not blaming Hillary entirely but she needs to own the problem. Instead of screaming What does it matter, how about what went wrong and here are proposals of preventive actions etc.
FCOL, yahoo is getting on my nerve ... anyway, God bless our troops. I am going to hang up the flag now.
and busy raising money for Clinton Foundation:
A longtime friend of Hillary Clinton told her the deadly attacks on the U.S. mission in Libya had been planned for a month by al-Qaeda affiliates and that the attackers used a nearby protest as a cover for the raid.
The message from Sidney Blumenthal, a White House adviser in the Clinton administration, two days after the Sept. 11, 2012, attack, was among dozens he sent her while she was secretary of state, according to e-mails released Friday by the State Department. Blumenthal’s Sept. 13 memo said that the attackers had planned the assault and then took advantage of the demonstrations -- a finding that was at odds with the description initially offered by the White House.
Clinton forwarded to her State Department colleagues many of the e-mails from Blumenthal who also was advising businesses looking for government contracts in Libya.
LOL, the yahoo police replace the 4 letter word for Bowel Movement.
Reported today in Mercury News:
With spring buyers vying for a limited number of properties, the median price for Santa Clara County homes reached yet another all-time high in April, climbing to $905,000. San Mateo County set a record, as well -- $1,194,500 -- as did Alameda County, where the median price tag rose to $690,000.
Meg and Hurd are doing well in their home equity front as well.
And you are comparing HP with Apple? I really do not want to dignify your analysis with an answer but what the hay. Other than IBM, no other names you mentioned showed qtr after qtr of shrinking revenue and profit margin. And other than IBM, all holding substantially more cash than cheap debt.
Just a goad darn shame and the younger workers are eating up what the CEOs are spoon/force feeding them. They never heard of The HP Way.
true, Yahoo deleted my response by referencing MLK's speech on a killing in Selma's bloody Sunday march.
And they wonder why less people are using yahoo message board and more on Facebook. I am done as well till job reports in two weeks.
Let's have a reflective Memorial weekend and God bless our troops fighting for corporate America.
and salivate at Meg's great turnaround:
We are nearing the completion of our 2012 restructuring plan. In Q2 approximately 3,900 people exited the company making the total reduction to date approximately 48,000. We are on track to complete this existing program with a total of 55,000 people expected to exit by the end of fiscal 2015.
Meg has her turkey turning around like wheel on the bus. For example as pointed out by RBC in CC:
Amit Daryanani - RBC Capital Markets LLC
Thanks, good afternoon, guys. I was hoping you could just talk a bit about the $2 billion of potential restructuring you have to do for the Services business. It seems like it's 10% of your revenue stream over there, so what are the challenges seen there that you need to take that big of a new restructuring charge to get to the 7% to 9% margins. And do you think potentially the piece of this portfolio that's just unprofitable that you may be better walking away from it? Maybe you could just talk about what's leading the charges in the revenue stream, that would be helpful.
Meg's turn around plan:
...So there are real market shifts going on here. And basically, the additional savings plan that we mentioned today would derisk our plan for ES to reach that 7% to 9% operating margins, but more importantly would enable us to sustain that level of profitability over time. So we've got more aggressive labor pyramid shifts that have to take place onshore/offshore locations to make sure that we stay competitive in that market, and the market is changing dramatically.
going forward for the dumb down HPQ?
With all that in mind, our guidance for fiscal 2015 non-GAAP diluted net earnings per share outlook remains in the range of $3.53 to $3.73. Fiscal 2015 GAAP diluted net earnings per share outlook remains in the range of $2.03 to $2.23. Q3 2015 non-GAAP diluted net earnings per share is expected to be in the range of $0.83 to $0.87, and Q3 2015 GAAP diluted net earnings per share is expected to be in the range of $0.50 to $0.54.
Well below its all time high of ~$57. Thanks to the current GOP POTUS candidate Fiorina, Chainsaw Al's disciple Hurd and ex-Governor of CA candidate Whitman ... so sad.
Shrinking like IBM ahead of more pokey hokey wool in your eye split. Sold off hardware and storage HPC and more pink slips to come?
what a mess.
No, the real problem is not the procedure that worked for the rest of the teams. The real problem is the Pat organization that was caught stealing signals, recruit players illegally and now lying to the fans. What else did the Pats do to win ... doctored the Seahawk's drinking water, paid off some of opponents' players or hookers ...?
The 4 game suspension is nothing compared to his reputation as a cheater and liar. Shame on the end justifies the means to win by any means organizations.
From social media chatter, seems that most of Western states were down. Definitely up and down the west coast. How about Colorado and Texas?
The decent job data could have been stellar if job seekers are better qualified.
Recall when I first entered the job market in early 70s, aviation sector went from king during the Vietnam War to dead zones as Boeing, Hughes, Douglas were closing their factories up and down the West Coast. The hottest ticket for jobs were semiconductors (Fairchild-Intel-AMD) and petroleum, thanks to OPEC. Of course what was good for GM was also good for the country then.
Recall those airplane jobs: Dispatching, Production, expediter***, Material Control, Sheetmetal, Sub-assembly, Factory manager, Plating, Painting, Planning, Lofting, Drophammer, Plannishing, Punchpress, stock rooms, schedulers, assemblers inserting all sorts of bolts and nuts, drafters, blue prints ... Today, they were mostly replaced by robots, machines and computers.
***There is one expediter for every two positions on Final Assembly, and one each for Wing and Control Surfaces ... It is my opinion and the opinion of every other stockroom worker that they are damned nuisances who actually slow things down instead of speeding them up. But I suppose we're prejudiced. Practically every defense plant has them; if they weren't a necessity, they wouldn't be there. Blueprints and work orders get mislaid; foremen keep putting off a difficult job for an easy one; parts become buried in the various stockrooms; move-boys pile finished parts in with unfinished. So the expediters, who speed from one end of the plant to the other, who keep themselves informed of plans before they are reduced to paper, who are bursting with knowledge of every phase of production connected with their project - they really are necessary.
