    [–] [SOCJUS] J.Price Previously Singing Praises of ANet's Anti-Harassment Efforts oktober75 6 points ago * (lasted edited 7 days ago) in KotakuInAction

    They're called co-workers and colleagues in professional environments. JP appears to see people based on what sits between their legs. She sounds like she's making a mountain out of a mole hill because if the environment she worked in at Anet was really as bad as she's making it out to be and Anet was as proactive as she says, those employees would no longer be her co-workers.

    "My company and my colleagues said very clearly that they value the dignity and equality of their female employees".

    They say that when they hire you.

    Hat, who started /r/quinnspiracy/? I can't remember, but that's where I learned of KiA, they were created less than a week apart.

    I'd like to see their subreddits to read them. What was the most popular one?

    These bloggers are just upset that the gaming community has taken advantage of the power and tactics their SJW friends and community have used to do the same to their opponents.
    The Twitter platform has many uses and making your thoughts public opens you up to criticism, bad and good. These two developers could have avoided this whole mess if they weren't so egotistical and righteous with thier opinions publically.

    Someone should introduce this person to Ryulong. He'd have a fun time wrapping his head around the implications to any wiki he's ever held in high regard.

    [–] California sees $9 billion surplus, passes budget to help poor oktober75 2 points ago in news

    Say what? California has one of the largest debts as of this article: https://californiapolicycenter.org/californias-total-state-local-debt-totals-1-3-trillion/ . How'd they end up with a surplus in such a short time?

    The Federal Government actively discriminates in the corporate sector as well. WBE (women owned business enterprise), MBE (minority owned business enterprise), and DBE (Disadvantaged Business Enterprise) are required to be included in governement contracts. They are literally handed up to 30% of the contract work in some industries because of their sex or race.

    You can look it up yourself to see the shit show of government regulations. Here's what NY state has on their website: https://esd.ny.gov/doing-business-ny/mwbe/mwbe-certification-eligibility-requirements

    Couldn't tell from the picture.
    edit: deleted
    edit 2: I take that back. I checked the image again, the vertical pieces they removed appear to only be cosmetic.

    Thanks for the reply. I checked the ASCE code and the requirements don't specify material, just the loading requirements:
    4.5.3 Loads on Vehicle Barrier Systems Vehicle barrier systems for passenger vehicles shall be designed to resist a single load of 6,000 lb (26.70 kN) applied horizontally in any direction to the barrier system, and shall have anchorages or attachments capable of transferring this load to the structure.

    Appears like something failed. I also noted that the number of cables is different on different levels. 3, 4, and 5 have five cables while higher levels have seven. I found that odd since the load requirement should be the same.

    Been doing some reading, it appears that there should also be wheel stops in spaces to help prevent this from happening too. Something failed here and I don't know if it was design, material, or the code not being followed.
    edit: found this PDF http://www.post-tensioning.org/Uploads/Conference/2009%20Convention/Mon150Frederick.pdf (check out page 6, there are 10 cables shown in that cross section. Twice as many on levels 3,4, & 5 of this garage and 1.4 times as many installed on levels 6 and up)
    edit 2: The IBC (international building code) refers to ASCE code sections. See ASCE-7 standards 4.5.3 https://www.waterboards.ca.gov/waterrights/water_issues/programs/bay_delta/california_waterfix/exhibits/docs/dd_jardins/DDJ-148%20ASCE%207-10.pdf
    edit 3: something is really off. I count 5 cables on the lower levels (3,4, & 5) of the garage, but 7 on the levels above.

    So what code determines the barrier type? IBC, the state, local municipality? This is California and I'm having a hard time understanding the reason behind not installing a concrete barrier. The cost of it on the scale of this structure is peanuts.
