@  korniceman3000 (11:59:09 AM) These are people that need help.
@  korniceman3000 (11:58:46 AM) It's like a long term way to defer taxes (if not entirely) + these taxes are offset to the consumer and shareholders allowing them a pass. Sadly as bad as Delta is, they still pay better dividends than a lot of other corporations who hoard their cash like Amazon.
@  korniceman3000 (11:40:20 AM) https://liveandletsf...orporate-taxes/
@  korniceman3000 (11:40:16 AM) This article gives an idea of how Delta found a way to game the system.
@  korniceman3000 (11:39:43 AM) Still think they pay a "larger amt" than working people? Hardly...
@  korniceman3000 (11:36:12 AM) Of the 80+, 60 of these companies are the largest in the US, including General Motors and Delta.

@  korniceman3000 (11:34:40 AM) Activision Blizzard made $447 million and got a $229 million rebate.
@  korniceman3000 (11:33:36 AM) https://www.inc.com/...rprise-you.html
@  korniceman3000 (11:33:27 AM) Last year, over 80 major corporations found enough loopholes in the tax law to not pay any taxes, including Chevron, Amazon, Netflix etc. Amazon even managed to even get a $129 million tax REBATE.
@  korniceman3000 (11:14:48 AM) American Airlines is asking for $12 billion. I can expect Delta and United to eventually ask similar figures. That's already two thirds of the amt. granted for airline industry bailout. That $58 billion isn't going to last very long.
@  korniceman3000 (11:12:18 AM) You can bet there will be another airline strike + a whole series of layoffs and threats of bankruptcy in an effort to downsize and not use that money for their employees.
@  korniceman3000 (11:09:41 AM) Makes a hell of lot more sense.
@  korniceman3000 (11:09:25 AM) https://www.fool.com...s-on-airli.aspx
@  korniceman3000 (11:09:19 AM) You have flight attendants, pilots, and other employees asking the govt. to "provide direct payroll subsidies to airline industry workers, including pilots and flight attendants but also airport service workers" and not to give that money to the airline execs to distribute.
@  korniceman3000 (11:07:04 AM) American spent the vast majority of their physical liquid earnings and Delta about 50% to inflate their stock value on paper. Now the collapse of the stock market caused their imaginary money to disappear and they have no physical money for payroll and operations and want real physical cash loans from taxpayers to bail them out while still saying they will have to do massive layoffs because they can't meet their "projected" future earnings....
@  korniceman3000 (11:03:58 AM) Now the airlines want to use tax dollars as well. They've spent over $39 billion in stock buybacks over the last 5 years.
@  korniceman3000 (11:02:23 AM) Money they were supposed to use for lending but didn't leaving a void in liquidity that forced federal govt. to pump $500 billion in December and another $500 billion in March for short term funding. Not because banks didn't have the money, they just didn't want to use their own money.
@  korniceman3000 (10:49:28 AM) It's $4 trillion combined in cash for all the US non-financial corporations. On top of their cash reserves, they also have a trillion in financial physical assets + the existing value in their stock. This means they have tremendous leverage they can use to borrow from banks which also sit one ridiculous amts of cash.

I hope she recovers from it, cinderella@yoona.  I hope she didn't accidentally get anyone else infected.

Are you referring to the 1982 Securities and Exchange Commission who passed rule 10b-18, which created a legal process for buybacks and opened the floodgates for companies to start repurchasing their stocks en masse and are one of the two most important factors behind the all time highs in the stock market (The other is the Fed, whose policies have allowed companies to issue debt with record low yields, allowing them to fund these trillions in buybacks.), Keitaro88?

I seriously hope you're not implying the military go bankrupt too, Keitaro88.  >_<

@  Emperor Ryu (01:24:11 AM)

Again, he's the Commander-In-Chief of the U.S. Military.  Does anybody recognize the chain of command in a military hierarchy here?  It reminds me of this scene, . . . https://www.youtube....h?v=DhbObZEF0Mc  ^_^  He's not wrong about the ratings, korniceman3000.  He's just mentioning a different way to look at how important his White House Briefings on the coronavirus is to the people.  If you'd paid any attention to this interview, . . . https://www.youtube....h?v=-xytW1bgB8I  It covers the part whereas bias media outlets regularly cut off his briefings to insert their own fake-ass narratives to paint the man wrong.  The lying media knows that by fully airing his briefings, despite themselves getting more viewership and an increase in ratings, they would inadvertently give him more creditability and support that's directly against their hatred for the guy and wanting the people to be angry at him forever.

@  Emperor Ryu (01:10:28 AM)

$4 trillion each, korniceman3000?  O_O  Let's be real here, businesses in general, whether they be huge or small, all have a role to play in the U.S. and Internationally in keeping the country going strong.  Knock that pin down, and we'll see a financial collapse that'll dwarf all previous economic disasters combined.  You have to understand they too pay taxes, a rather larger amount than other people working when it comes to these huge corporations.  That's their money, not anyone else's.  If you were rich and had people calling for your bankruptcy for no good reasons, would you think this would be fair?  Please also note, they too are devoting their own business resources to help fight the coronavirus.  Sometimes, I swear, it can be sicken to hear economic discrimination on monetary classes when we should all be focusing on working together to defeat this enemy that's one billionth our size and putting up a rather tough fight in this war.

@  korniceman3000 (11:32:55 AM) @ keitaro I'm sure the military already has a game plan. The only problem is whether Trump agrees with it or not and when he decides to act.
@  korniceman3000 (11:29:59 AM) Even now, many corporations are sitting on a huge pile of cash reserves (U.S. non-financial corporations have $4 trillion dollars) while expecting to use free tax dollars to fund their operations. But then again, why would they bother to use their own money with a $2 trillion govt. stimulus in play. Taxpayers being taken for a ride again...
@  korniceman3000 (11:24:30 AM) @ keitaro Carly is definitely on point. Corporations like major air carriers should not be allowed to use tax dollars for payroll and operational expenditures if they hadn't first tried to secure their own line of credit from major banks or leveraged some of their assets as collateral, especially how most of the major corporations used the savings from the Trump tax cut to buy back stocks instead of hiring more workers or increasing wages.
@  korniceman3000 (11:10:27 AM) The scary part is the incorrect testing in both locations in Miami was carried out by the National Guard as those were their testing facilities. Just today, news reported a lot of people needed re-testing because they used the wrong kind of testing kits. It's been an ongoing issue the past week (-__-)

Relax, korniceman3000.  There's lots of medical equipment being made and being shipped out.

Theorizing is one thing, korniceman3000.  Testing and finding out the truth is another.  So chill.

Don't worry about loans, korniceman3000.  That's their business to deal with in the future.  We need flight services to help out bring people from other countries back home when they've fully recovered and self-quarantine themselves afterward.

It's just common sense what's she's talking about, Keitaro88.  Stop worrying so much.  Shessh.  >_<

@  korniceman3000 (01:15:09 PM) This is what more corporations and and airlines should be doing. Securing their own line of credit and leveraging their assets instead of expecting govt. loans using tax dollars to bail them out.... Loans which we know will probably become forgivable...

@  korniceman3000 (10:49:56 AM) @ Keitaro I think it is far more than 1 million. If there were an estimated 19 million flu cases in US from 2019-2020 and coronavirus spreads more easily than the flu, one can only imagine what the real un-tested numbers might look like
@  korniceman3000 (10:46:46 AM) Now we have the federal govt. competing and outbidding states for the same set of ventilators. Since feds have priority, they are taking the shipments that were previously ordered by other states, further delaying the process.
@  korniceman3000 (10:44:51 AM) It's a total mess at this point.
@  korniceman3000 (10:44:37 AM) Then you got many states with deceptively lower coronavirus counts because many people can't get tested and testing locations are far apart making it difficult to get a correct community evaluation.
@  korniceman3000 (10:43:14 AM) The same test location at our Dolphins stadium is using 2-3 types of tests and staff informed news that some may need to be re-tested as some kits gave inconclusive results.
@  korniceman3000 (10:41:54 AM) The problem in the US is because we got so many subdivisions of govt. and no single uniform action coming from the top. Just in the form of testing, Florida alone has dozens of different coronavirus test kits with varying degrees of accuracy being used and no uniform testing or screening procedure.
@  korniceman3000 (10:39:19 AM) I think lack of a unified, coordinated response is part of the problem. I can understand this happening in Italy because many of the regions hit hardest have many over the age of 65 so it wouldn't be surprising that their hospitals couldn't handle the influx.

Composers is very highly competitive.  Brings me back to the old techno days, and witnessing the genre break up into other emotional categories, and finally being merged back together again, only to be called, "EDM".  So many DJs and composers throughout the decades.  The only way a composer that can get noticed is if people talk about how well the beat and flow of the track just energizes them.  It's difficult to gauge where the majority is in the audience these days because of the sheer magnitude range that's opened up, thanks to the internet and computer software DJ programs.  Take this for example, . . . I play these back-to-back because of the sheer simplicity it was made, . . . https://www.youtube....h?v=xvxdDtIXqCQ  &  https://www.youtube....h?v=CxqSqOIWXGE  In terms of anime soundtracks, this person is so well respected, . . . https://en.wikipedia...wiki/Yoko_Kanno  She's a true pioneer.

I've always thought that job was pretty secure because of the ever changing of the seasons annually.  Winter, have to deal with the snow.  Spring, trimming the excess plant growth.  Summer, making sure there's water to keep the area looking healthy and flourishing always.  Fall, cleaning up the dead leaves.  And then there's the occasional rainfall and flooding.  Tornados ripping up property and roads and messing up power lines and other structural damages.  And then there's the environmental damagers.  I won't even mention animal droppings either.  >.<  I always give my respect to those workers.  Is it common to contract professional teams nowadays instead of building up a team of talented individuals?

*facepalm*  You do know Gordon Brown is a "former prime minister" and has no sway in current government policies, Keitaro88?  It's not happening.

No, that's not where the money is going, Keitaro88.  *facepalm again*

I haven't heard of a new strain of the coronavirus lately, cinderella@yoona.  But I've heard there's lots of younger generations still living with their parents in Italy.

@  Keitaro88 (08:18:12 PM) forgot to add to previous shout, it's so easy for officials to do what they wanna do and say "It's prevention measures". 1 step closer just to another conspiracy theory, hehe
@  Keitaro88 (08:03:29 PM) i like how under cv case(ES) people losing their common citizen rights https://www.channeln...elled-12586942? but in the same time, in this case, he wasnt right. But it would be fun if all those surveillance measures stayed after epidemic. LOL

@  Keitaro88 (07:32:14 PM) @korniceman3000 i would say it's official numbers(tested). i think it's moar than 1mln+ considering how citizens react to virus(denial, dont care, not reported etc) and population numbers. poor people, stuck with dysfunctional gov, which only sees citizens as wallet... Private med doesnt work and should be only as option not general.
@  Keitaro88 (07:02:26 PM) and this was in the middle of March https://www.dailymai...11-mission.html both sides have no excuse what happening in both countries. corruption at in finest.

@  korniceman3000 (12:37:22 PM) Damn, Florida coronavirus cases keep rising. We have no idea which part of the curve we are on. Still allowing more people traveling from NY and New Jersey in with a so-called "self-quarantine" requirement. The only screening process they got was a questionnaire filled out prior to de-planing and a temp check. Many coming in from late night flights don't even get the temp. check and some aren't even screened. (-__-)...
@  korniceman3000 (11:29:57 AM) Actually, I auditioned as a composer not as a performer. Those never turn out well LOL. I was told by the reps via email that the judges would listen to my tracks live during the process just like they review the performers. Unfortunately, that wasn't the case when I attended several live auditions where I was told they didn't have music A&R and asked me to leave them my disc. Wasted airfare and hotel flying to LA and NY for nothing. SM held one audition in Miami 2 yrs ago and it wound up being the same way so I stopped auditioning for Kpop. I have since transitioned to hip hop beats instead to try and license them to rappers and local artists.
@  korniceman3000 (11:23:01 AM) Smaller firms pay better short term but job is less secure and dependent on the number of projects and project budget scale. Funny thing with county and state jobs is that many of the "engineers" working under the licensed professional engineer don't have engineering degrees. They do have a lot of experience working from the bottom up.
@  korniceman3000 (11:19:27 AM) There are certainly a lot of civil engineering job openings being offered but companies often hire from within rather than outside so even if there are postings, they don't hold much weight. For county and state jobs, permanent ones are reserved for internal promotions while the other ones are sub-contracted to smaller firms on a project basis.

Yes, cinderella@yoona.  v_v  I hope the law enforcement are tracking down and arresting those using the coronavirus as a bio-weapon against those who disagree with their sick and twisted views of the world.  And yes, comments I've come cross saying they'll do that are from the Democrat side of the isle.  >_<

<<<  Checking videos now.  ^_^

@  Emperor Ryu (01:20:21 AM)

I assumed civil and environmental engineers had a pretty good salary, no?  Average range was between $40,000 to as high as $102,000 per year.  Was there a short term job stagnation that occurred in the profession recently?  Did it clash with other similar professions, like the atypical gardener?  That's great to hear a passionate career pursuit.  I hope you get the chance to prove yourself in K-Pop.  If not, you gave it your best, and nobody cannot take that away from you.  ^_^  Have you voiced your resume to all of the major K-Pop labels already?  If so, did you get any positive responses in return?  How good is your Hangul?  Korean language skills?  What type of musical and image approach do you want to take in K-Pop?  Previous vocal training?  Dance training?  Public relations training (Interview handling.)?

@  Emperor Ryu (12:51:14 AM)

Only for those corporations that do not have the financial reserves.  Right now, the hardest hit with downsizing is the hospitality and travel industries.  But the operational costs are huge for the airline industry.  Jet fuel ain't cheap, for one thing.  Somewhere around $19,000 to $21,000 per flight.  And I won't even bother to mention maintenance and engine repairs.  One thing I heard a while back that confused the heck out of me is hearing about "empty flights" because pilots who don't want to lose their flight placings at the airports.  As for Ford, it has to be in the billions range in case of a massive vehicle recall and lawsuits.  But that's a good thing they have a good amount in reserve to help fight the coronavirus.  I do wonder if there's a health insurance claim wrapped with the tax breaks that could be added to the business's net worth?  Google and Microsoft are still under investigation for elections meddling this year.

Not to worry, korniceman3000.  They're hiring more healthcare workers.  I even heard of volunteers.  In New York State, 4 new hospitals are being built.  ^_^

And more medical supplies are being shipped out in the millions, according to President of the United States.  ^.^

@  cinderella@y... (04:00:09 PM) USA 100k !!!
@  korniceman3000 (12:02:16 PM) As for why I decided to switch to doing music, a lot of my friends and co-workers opted out to do something they liked rather than be the avg. company employee toiling for a firm that only cared about acquiring large scale projects while minimizing staff. Since myself and some friends had done some Kpop auditions a number of years ago and I had always done remixes, they encouraged me to try something new.
@  korniceman3000 (11:55:16 AM) Warren Buffet, Google, Microsoft combine for several hundred billion in cash reserves... I really hope they don't also ask for handouts...
@  korniceman3000 (11:51:49 AM) US commercial banks are also sitting on huge cash reserves, none of which are willing to use for corporate loans thanks to govt. bailout plan.

@  korniceman3000 (11:50:02 AM) This article says Ford is sitting on $37 billion in cash reserves.
@  korniceman3000 (11:49:03 AM) The airline industry made over $5 billion in baggage claim fees alone last year. They made record profits the last few years. Hell Delta airlines netted $20 billion since 2015. (That's NET. I can only imagine the numbers for Gross). Now they want tax dollars to pay for their employees... This is outrageous.
@  korniceman3000 (11:43:20 AM) Major corporations are going to downsize with massive layoffs and this stimulus doesn't have the guard rails against that. So long as they retain X amount of employees, they will be entitled to a forgivable loan to be used for that payroll while eliminating many workers to cut costs and benefits.
@  korniceman3000 (11:18:29 AM) Somebody please use the Defense Production Act more efficiently. It's not just about funding and buying supplies but also designation of work force, manpower, and distribution...
@  korniceman3000 (11:16:12 AM) Seems like it's not just shortage of equipment and supplies but shortage of medical staff and healthcare workers as well. Those that are present are overworked and highly susceptible to infection.

@  Emperor Ryu (04:27:02 PM)

I remember the earlier days of the outbreak, there was so many business comments about how the stock market is not a free-for-all buying toy/candy store.  LMAO!  It's a tricky thing with value of the shares during this global situation with the coronavirus.  Many people that I've read so far, based on their comments, are more worried about the smaller businesses closing down than the larger ones, but it's not easily deduced when considering the larger businesses are doing more in the upkeep and fighting against the spread of the coronavirus.  I've talked to someone about how many C.E.O.s probably don't have enough money in their own bank accounts to sustain their daily costly business operations for the duration of the outbreak/pandemic (Referring to estimated Fall season of 2021 it'll end.) on their own, even when including setbacks and accidents that may happen along the way.

@  Emperor Ryu (04:07:07 PM)

I agree, I cannot stand her deflecting methods and the lack of any ability to give any solutions.  Every Democratic Debates/Town Halls was just purely a clown circus of epic proportions.  At least we got lots of laughs while eating delicious popcorn and sipping on some suicide soda (A large gulp cup size with a mixture of every available 7-Eleven or gas station self-servering soda in the beverage dispensers.).

Yeah, lots of gripe going around about the porky aspects of the now $2.2 trillion bill.  But we don't know just how bad the situations are with these businesses dealing with the coronavirus.  I'm still hearing lots of layoffs, which is insane in a short amount of time.  Good thing the Republicans are eagle-eyeing and keeping non-coronavirus, SJW agenda, left-wing extremism driven nonsense out of the recovery package.

So you resigned from your previous job to try your hand in music then.  Interesting.  What made you switch careers, korniceman3000?

The medical supplies are coming.  Just hang in there.  Actually, they already started manufacturing and shipping the equipment out to the States, although in small amount of units.  Both Ford and GM have gone on record that they'll ramp up production very soon.

@  korniceman3000 (11:43:26 AM) Even with the strictest form of regulations, I doubt any will be effective as this like legalized bribery...
@  korniceman3000 (11:39:07 AM) https://www.politico...del-for-europe/
@  korniceman3000 (11:39:04 AM) I think Ireland is said to adopt the strictest lobbying rules so far.
@  korniceman3000 (11:38:45 AM) @ Keitaro Those senators need to be held accountable. Only a third of EU countries allow lobbying and they have some restrictions.
@  korniceman3000 (11:23:31 AM) Ok... Nevermind... Found the Warren letter LOL! Not sure if Chamber Of Commerce will respond. One thing is for sure, there will be a lot of companies trying to profit from this crisis. The only question is who and how to track and stop them.
@  korniceman3000 (11:16:26 AM) All the major corporations, particularly those that used earnings for massive stock buy backs should only be given low interest loans to ensure govt. gets some return for the tax dollars spent. Money should be reserved for smaller businesses and not major corporations that can easily downsize to avert losses and raise capital via selling new shares of stock or leverage private loans using their own assets.
@  korniceman3000 (11:04:05 AM) Have a major gripe with airlines getting $25 billion bailout. It should be a $50 billion loan that they should be required to pay back instead of one where they will be completely forgiven provided it be used for employee payroll. All the major air carriers spent the majority of their profits on stock buy backs to boost their company value and on CEO bonuses. Now we give them essentially free money to pay their employees (-__-)
@  korniceman3000 (10:51:55 AM) LMAO Can't read Warren's letter as I think she changed her mind and therefore removed it from her website. Never liked her ideas. WAAAAY TOO EXTREME and Expensive...
@  korniceman3000 (10:49:45 AM) Personally, I'm all for application of some parts of the DPA at this point. They could use it to get valuable resources for ventilator production and supply those to smaller ventilator manufacturers who don't have the money to outbid Ford and GM in the open market so they can start immediate production during the time Ford and GM convert their plants.
@  korniceman3000 (10:46:48 AM) Ford and GM are both in the process of converting their plants for ventilator production with GM stating the earliest they can start is on April 6 provided they are able to get the parts on time. Then supplier production would start in 2-3 weeks. So it could be some time before they can actually put out the ventilators.
@  korniceman3000 (10:37:07 AM) Not surprising. Florida is having the same problem getting supplies and medical equipment as well as constantly running out of masks and testing swabs. The problem is we can't compete in the open market. We requested 1 million swabs from fed. govt. and only got 20,000 due to critical shortage and we don't have the resources to outbid other countries on the same market. Plus a lot of the hospitals are rationing supplies and many people with symptoms are getting turned away due to shortage of testing swabs being reserved for healthcare and emergency workers.
@  korniceman3000 (10:32:01 AM) LOL... I wouldn't use the word retired LOL I'm far from retirement age. Just decided to shift toward music.

@  Emperor Ryu (02:56:44 PM)

<<<  Here's the letter, . . . https://www.warren.s.../doc/2020.03.23 Letter to Chamber of Commerce re Lobbying against DPA.pdf

It won't make any sense for it to be about profit when Congress giving a $2 trillion relief bill that'll help them economically.  It's basically about adhering to the basic supply needs people thrive on.  I've heard recently that even F.E.M.A. is reconsidering using the D.P.A. too.

The Man In Office is considering all aspects of the supply chain challenge during this coronavirus outbreak/pandemic.  Don't fault the guy for thinking first.  ^_^Correction, they're making the medical equipment since this past Sunday, . . . https://arstechnica....s-boost-output/

@  Emperor Ryu (02:35:56 PM)

State Governors need to do better, if you ask me.  For example, New York's Governor has to better manage people's travels to slow down the spread of the virus first and foremost.  To which it'll give more manufacturers time to make more needed medical equipment.  I keep coming across online comments how crappy of a job he's doing in that State.  And to think his childish brother is a news anchor in lying CNN.  >.<

Please don't mix up the timelines of events and nip-pick certain statements and then re-arrangement into a losing talking point.  It doesn't make for a good argument.  Here, check this out, . . . https://www.foxnews....avirus-outbreak

Teenagers, glider003.  To think we ourselves managed to survive that period in our lives and didn't do such stupid evil things.  We're thankful to our parents.  ^_^

@  korniceman3000 (01:02:10 PM) @ cinderella yoona LMAO! Not a reporter. Former civil and environmental engineer from Miami Florida. My family is from Hong Kong but I spend a couple months every year there :D
@  korniceman3000 (12:45:18 PM) As of now, GM and Ford are still not making any ventilators. Both admitted it could take several months before they have a rollout.
@  korniceman3000 (12:29:51 PM) Instead he is relying on the largest corporations to voluntarily produce without direct federal order.
@  korniceman3000 (12:29:06 PM) Also, there are a lot of smaller companies not in the medical field but have many workers and proper equipment but not money to help make masks and ventilators. Trump could use DPA to grant them loans to start production immediately and not just solely rely on 3M, GM, Ford or other major corporations. But he hasn't.
@  korniceman3000 (12:23:15 PM) He has done none of those things.
@  korniceman3000 (12:23:07 PM) If Trump applies DPA now, he can direct private companies to make and sell masks to the most critical states. He can also have resource companies not making emergency gear to sell directly to govt. relevant material and govt would distribute supplies toward mask/ventilator production to ensure there are enough resources for all companies making protective gear and hospital equipment.
@  korniceman3000 (12:11:48 PM) @ Keitaro Exactly what you said. Corporate America holds the keys.
@  korniceman3000 (12:10:59 PM) Now we learn the Chamber Of Commerce and many major corporations lobbied for Trump to not use DPA because emergency production would cut into their profits. Trump and Kudlow both acknowledged this that sent a "tremor to the business community"
@  korniceman3000 (11:58:52 AM) Especially after he was told there was a critical shortage and not enough available.
@  korniceman3000 (11:58:23 AM) His own words: "They can get them faster by getting them on their own," Trump told reporters at the White House. "In other words, go through a supply chain that they may have because the governors, during normal times, the governors buy a lot of things, not necessarily through the federal government."
@  korniceman3000 (11:58:13 AM) While I get that 3M doesn't directly distribute on the market, Trump could have acted earlier with DPA to have 3M sell to the govt. directly to prevent price gouging. Instead he told them to get it themselves.
@  korniceman3000 (11:51:59 AM) https://www.foxnews....e-gouging-masks
@  korniceman3000 (11:51:56 AM) That only happened after constant pressure from governors requesting for masks and ventilators due to shortages and after Mark Cuban uncovered how #M was profiting during the shortages.
@  korniceman3000 (11:50:53 AM) Started with an Exec Order against price gouging but he waited week after invoking DPA.
@  korniceman3000 (11:31:41 AM) Actually, I should not have used invoke but rather applied DPA. He invoked it a week ago but it was only yesterday that he actually started using it on a very limited basis.
