Oct 4th 2010 3:12PM Watched the first part of the show last night. Then read Mandell's report today. While I feel it was generous of Schaefer to give extensive "rewards" to the employees that she worked with --- what about the majority of her other hard working employees that she did not interact with, who are faced with similar situations? Do all Great Wolf Resort employees who have a new baby now get six months paid vacation? Do all GWR employees with medical problems now get the company to pay for their operations and recovery time? Do all GWR employes who aspire to become pilots (or any other occupation) get their training paid for by the company? Do all GWR employee's college age children get scholarships - or at least the opportunity to be considered for one?
Aug 1st 2010 7:25PM Barb - just for your info - when I was on Easter Island a couple of years ago, none of the Moa (statues) there were is a circle. Most are on rectangular platforms (called Ahu), except for those still in the quarry, or along the mountainside, or those that were abandoned as they were being transported from the quarry to their orginally-intended destinations. As far as some other comments - I too was more impressed by Newgrange ( in Ireland), several of the megalithic temples in Malta, and by Avebury than with Stonehenge itself.
May 27th 2010 1:57PM I would give the mystery flyer a D on their report card for this article. This article is grading Alaska Airline reservation and gate employees and Horizon flight personnel. If the mystery flyer wanted to grade Alaska Airlines, why didn't they take a flight ON ALASKA AIRLINES? It's not that hard to check out the codeshare flight information or ask about it when one books the tickets to find out exactly which airline one will be using!I have flown both Alaska and Horizon. Horizon Air is a sister carrier to Alaska Airlines and both airlines are members of Alaska Air Group. In general I have found that both airlines have very friendly and courteous flight attendents and gate personnel.
Nov 20th 2009 9:07PM Who watches this stuff on a regular basis???
I live in Orange county and had to watch a couple of times just to see how we are being portrayed on TV. If everyone in Orange County were like these people, I'd be out of here in a moment.
Nov 14th 2009 2:23PM "Gosselin did not have a lawyer present when he signed the contract with the network for the show. "They had a cadre of lawyers so they had a one-sided agreement," he explains." - DUHHHH - not having his own lawyer there before singing a major contract like this????????
Oct 7th 2009 8:05PM I think this paragraph of the "story" should have been emphasized:
The Tempo entertainment section, which she edited, was recently discontinued. And no one seems to have any hard proof that she was let go for any other reason.
Enough said -----????
Aug 6th 2009 1:42PM Sorry to hear about his passing. However, at age 95, he did have a very long, productive life. What bothers me is that once again, the AOL Headlines are not completely accurate or they over sensationalize the headline to get one's attention. "8-Time Oscar Winner Passes Away". Mr. Schulberg won ONE Oscar - seven other Oscars were awarded to other people who were involved in the film (that he wrote the screenplay for). "On The Waterfront" did win 8 Oscars - not Mr. Schulberg.
