Oh my.... I didn't intend to start this thread diversion.   For the record when I said "home" I was more referring to "home town" not necessarily Mom's basement   :o.

   Having an advanced degree in Marine Science and working in the marine industry,  there is a ton of overlap between the various science & engineering disciplines.   Even in my niche of hydrographic surveying, there is a ton geophysical and geotechnical work involved directly in construction and all of the design, planning, and permitting.  There really are lots of opportunities out there for someone with a Geology degree,  they just might not be in Eastern Michigan.

A medical doctor is far from a four year degree program in advanced underwater basket weaving.  A surgeon goes beyond a regular MD in training.  Heck, anyone can get a four year degree and teach.  Some don't even need that to teach college level classes.  :bigsmile:  Some get the teaching cert and can't find a slot to teach in their preferred area.  AMHIK, I have a kid who jumped all the hoops and is now a Computer Systems Service Manager, selling hard and software to local companies. 


A degree is not a guarantee of a job, much less one in their selected area of expertise.  A competent trade school grad will always have work in their field.

I think we are talking apples and oranges here.  I get that a 4 year in underwater basket weaving might not get you a job, but let me make is simpler- if one doesn't understand the difference between an electrician and an electrical engineer, there's a problem.

True.  But not anyone can get a 4 year degree and teach in a way that helps students learn.  And that's the point.  I've been doing it long enough to see a HUGE difference there- but then again, I have a degree, so I might not know what I'm talking about.   :bigsmile:

People who eat in the car while driving, then toss the trash out the window.Hey assholes, there a million trash cans every where you go. Try waiting till you stop and throwing it into the trash.I think loss of driving license for a year and 1000 dollar fine would help stop it along with people being able to video and send to the cops for the fine.The world seems to be filled with two legged PIGS.

OK, ordeal unloading in progress.

Jan 7, wife diagnosed with Intra Vascular Lymphoma while in hospital since Dec 30 collapse at home. Rare and aggressive. Really needed 24/7 care via professional care. Needed Disability rating from SSN to qualify. I had applied in October for her. Finally got her qualified for Retirement benefits in January. I'm designated her Payee for direct deposit.

February 17, she passed, in the hospital, waiting for Disability rating based on her probability of imminent death. Still waiting on Disability rating. Spoke with SSN on phone February 18 and told them she had passed while waiting. February 25, received notice from SSN that she was approved for Disability.

March 25, finally received Death Certificate for official notification. Go to SSN, they're closed. March 28, meet with SSN for official notification. They remind me her benefits are terminated. Too late, the bank already called and said they returned her check. So I asked, what about her 40+ years of SSN payments? Where does that money go. OH, WE KEEP IT IN THE GENERAL FUND!

March 29, I get a letter in the mail from SSN. We stopped her payments, and we had paid in February, the month she passed.

WE WANT THAT PAYMENT BACK, OR WE'LL TAKE IT BACK. YOU HAVE 30 DAYS.

And they wander why people go postal.

Rant mode done, don't know what I'm going to do now.

I hate how the gov't does that. You can be all-in for a month less maybe 2 or 3 days, and they act like that month didn't exist. Did it when DEROSing and again when ETSing from the military 23 months and 28 days. Credit for 23 months. It becomes an issue that impacts the rest of your life because it can help with time applied toward retirement. GI Bill full pull back for the month even if most of it was "on target" and expensed for its intended purpose.

Sorry for your frustration.

Well, don't forget the reality that a degree is very often the thing that separates the "meets basic requirements" vs "does not meet basic requirements" where the HR dept is concerned.  Or whatever the first line of defense is when reviewing resumes.  You could be perfectly qualified for a job but if they check the degree required box, without one, your resume will never even be seen by a lot of companies because the first cut is the deepest.  It would be nice if every company had the time to read every resume and make some hard judgement calls but that's not real.  So, having a 4 year degree is often the only thing that gets you a looksee.  I've never worked in a field that has anything to do with my degree but I've gotten jobs just because I have it and have proven that I can fake 4 years of university level work.  I wouldn't be surprised if the school I went to had more to do with getting selected than the name of the degree.

Very true. I applied for the job I was doing on temporary assignment. The boss of the department called me and apologized. He point-blank told me he knew I could do the work at a level and quality above expectations [1] but that he couldn't consider my application because, while I had the college hours, I didn't have a degree.

1. I had cracked some "nuts" that their folks were stumped with and even wrapped up a program that the contractors walked away from (didn't bother to apply when the project came up for renewal) because they couldn't get it to work.

B. And HR accepted ANY degree for most any bid that required a degree. It often didn't have to be in the specific field.

Which is what's wrong. Employers value institutionalization over knowledge, skills, experience. This is how we end up with "middle managers" who don't know shit about shit, but boy oh boy, are they great company men. (sigh)

Which is precisely why you just lie about having a degree if you need to.  95% of jobs will never check and the ones that do are fairly obvious.

We have the same scenario at work where a job will be coming up for full time that has been done at a high level by a temp (without a degree, but with 25+ years experience)  Total crock.

I have considered doing this. I have 34 years in engineering, but no degree. I t really limits my choices, as I have to go where  I have an 'in' so I can get an interview. I thought a bout 'buying' a degree. Working with the kids coming out of school today, I just shake my head.
I would love to be able to buy off an office worker to put a file in the filing cabinet with my name on it in case anyone ever checks.

< just venting here.....

Spring Meet is now a 50% chance since the knee went out.  Hinged knee brace is helping a bunch, but waiting on the ortho doc's prognosis this week.  The bad left knee is taking up the slack and it's starting to ache, so I'm sitting a bunch now.  My sleep pattern is whacked out too. 

 :baldy:

We shall see.  I'm getting stir crazy already, but the recent turn of bad weather is part of it.  Snowed enough to actually coat the grass yesterday.  It's gone this morning thankfully.

Wife and I are supposed to go to Vegas the weekend after the May campout.  Flight and hotel are booked and paid, non-refundable.

Credit card scam artists.  Got an automated call regarding charges on one of my cards out in Washington State.  Nope, not mine.  Kill the card, kill the account and send me another card.  Two small charges to test their stolen info, I guess.  The only thing I've used the card for is medical bills in the past month.   >:(

VisionWorks can take a flying leap at a rancid rats hole.
My VA health care gives me free eye exam and glasses, but the glasses are only the thick rimmed 'birth control' glasses.  So I bought vision insurance this year (BlueCross FEP).
I took my Rx to VisionWorks - they're in the BC FEP 'network'.
I selected frames and gave them my Rx.
The lady spent about 20 mins on the computer and then said "$450"   WHAT?!?!  The ins covers the frames and 50% of the lenses!!   All I asked for were progressives w/ anti-glare coating.
She had put in a list of 'premium options', w/o asking or telling me!!  I basically had to threaten to leave w/o buying before she 'managed' to get the price (to me)  to $140.
I got the glasses today.   I walked in to VisionWorks to pick them up with the receipt in their bright red envelope in my hand.  A gal greeted me and lead me to the exam waiting area.  She didn't ask my name or why I was there...  She brought a clipboard w/ forms and I told her "I'm here to pick up my glasses" and held up the bright red envelope.  W/o appology, she led me to another gal.   
The second gal took my receipt, read it and asked for my full name - after she read it on the receipt! 
She had me take a seat and try on the glasses.  After a quick adjustment, she said "Thank you" with a weak smile.
No care info.  No customer service info. No cleaning cloth or cleaning solution.
Neither of the ladies had name tags, so I can't even tell customer service who gave me the terrible service.
And, I'm getting Spam Emails from VisionWorks w/ 'special' offers.

Ah, eye glasses. The second biggest sham in the world.

I spent a year or so a couple years back getting to know the business working on an ecommerce platform for one of the larger indie eyeglass labs.

You don't need to spend that much. Luxottica has a strangle-hold on all the retail brands, much like DeBeers has with diamonds, or Amazon is coming to have with all their private-label brands that sound like popular, non-Amazon retail brands.

There are a number of online sources where you can get glasses for WAY cheaper that are still top-line products with good-to-great lenses.

Your eye doc is under no legal requirement to only sell you the products they make huge profits on, but there you go. They profit. They're just resellers. They generally make far more on the glasses than the actual doctorin'. Sadly.

They have to give you the Rx. They are *NOT* required to give you the PD measurment (pupilary distance) and seg-height, but most will, and even if they hit you a small "admin fee" to give up that information, it's worth it. The $25 they might charge you is anywhere from 1/8th to about 1/16th the money you can save going indie.

Contact these guys; they can point you to any number of indie retailers locally or with online presence that will save you metric shit tons of money.

Most people think eye glasses are some black magic wonder that *HAVE* to cost so much; they are not, and do not. The world has been making them for hundreds of years. The problem is a few enterprising folks snatched up market share along the way and price-fix and control things because no one knew better, and because people don't trust... well... posts like this.

Surely this guy on some stupid motorcycle forum couldn't possibly know this with any authority.

I do. It was an eye-opening year of discovery and revulsion working with them. I wear glasses (mostly for reading). You'll never find me in a common, brand-name store or lab ever again.

http://www.feaind.com/

They're a lab, not a full retailer (yet...?). Part of the platform I was building was to enable them to sell direct to folks using the ecommerce underpinnings and templated-site model. I don't know if they've gone live yet, or to what capacity, but they can definitely get you to a retailer they work through, if they haven't started their retail push yet.

FEA. Good family owned company, several generations. "Fast, Efficient, Accurate." That's what the website says. Hah! FEA stands for - for real - "fuck 'em all" because that's what Bill, the owner, said as he broke out on his own to prove that all the other big eyeglass labs were price fixing pieces of shit. They're something like the 4th largest lab nationally, and the biggest indie lab.

I gave up on optical retailers.  www.zennioptical.com is my go to place for glasses.  Yeah, I pay for a good exam with an ophthalmologist, then get online and order exactly what I want and how I want them.  Cost is usually in the $100-$125 range for progressive bifocals with flex frames and transitions lenses with the super high end scratch guard coating.   


ETA: my last pair of retail glasses were thru VisionWorks also, but I had damn good insurance.  It STILL cost me $170.  Fuck 'em all.  Hard.

And I'm pretty much blind without mine.  They go on as I get out of bed and off at bedtime.

 I was the same for fifty years. Had to carry spare pairs in the car, lunch box, on the bike, because I'd be up shitzcreek if anything happened to the pair I was wearing-which did happen. I found an Ophthalmologist who had a great insurance work around going.  He stated that everyone has the beginnings of cataracts, some develop, some don't. Insurance companies consider Lasik to be a cosmetic surgery, which few plans cover. He would go and remove those"beginnings" and implant lenses on/in the eye. Because his procedure was considered corrective surgery, it was covered for the most part. I walked out of the procedure and threw away my glasses. Total was less than $500 because the one was a special lens to correct my astigmatism. I had been spending more than that on two years of glasses. That was ten years ago, and still no issues and no glasses.

Learned that years ago in the service.  Funds were assigned to specific things.  If you ran out of funds but still needed things in that catagory, we got 'creative'.
Life is made up of moments, small pieces of glittering mica in a long stretch of gray cement. We have to teach ourselves how to make room for them, to love them, and to live, really live. - Anna Quindlen
