toata mass-media americana si canadiana te mint mai mult decat te minte Michael Moore.
Daca atata lucru n-ai inteles pana acum stai in banca ta si taci din gura.

da' care mass-media ar fi de incredere pe lumea asta? :grin:

si pana la urma trebuie doar sa delimitezi realitatea ca atare de modul in care este interpretata si manipulata, ce-ti pasa cine o prezinta?

CNN e pe acelasi nivel cu FOX News, numai in tabere diferite, nu poti sa te uniti la nici una din ele mai mult de 10min.

Nu, nici vorba. CNN-ul are pretentii de impartialitate, mai un Wolf Blitzer, mai un interlocutor conservator, is pe la jumatatea spectrului. Echivalentul FoxNews in partea liberala e MSNBC. N-o atinge nimeni pe Rachel Maddow in leftism din toata media. Un fel de Glen Beck + O'Reilly pe invers.

Au facut niste tipi o analiza pe chestia asta anul trecut, cu toate canalele de stiri, pe care le-au analizat piece by piece, statistic, cu abacul alaturi, marcand si ce e left si ce e right in content. Stii cine a iesit cel mai balansat canal din toate ? O sa razi dar n-a fost BBC News ci Al Jazeeira. :)

MSNBC nu urmaresc, e in grila dar nu cred ca am stat pe el ever, adevarul e ca nu mai halesc nici unul din posturile astea din US, nici CNN nici Fox News, cand ii vad pe aia ce se mai chinuie cu bullshitul lor si spalarea de creiere fac alergie instant.
BBC News e OK, uneori mai dau pe EuroNews.

Canadians are among the world’s greatest Internet users. Yet many are unaware that their access to the Internet is metered. Many plans limit downloading to as little as 40 gigabytes a month – a bit of browsing and an hour of online video a day – before extra charges kick in. The most restrictive high-speed plan in the U.S., by contrast, offers many times more – 250 gigabytes of data – at lower prices. Many U.S. plans have no limits whatsoever.

http://www.theglobeandmail.com/news/technology/tech-news/ubb-internet/its-time-for-foreign-competition-in-canadian-telecommunications/article1896696/

It’s also odd, as the Internet gets faster, to hear Bell Canada complain about “congestion” as if it were 1999. Bell’s vision is an Internet that’s more like your cellphone. Treat every new Internet application as a “feature” that incurs a new monthly fee. Charge a “termination fee” if you get sick of how things are going. Above all, make everything consumers do cost more. It’s familiar territory for any cellphone owner, and it’s not a happy territory for consumers or the online economy.

oops! de cine trebuia "sa ne ridem" aici? cred ca am postat gresit.

Cu mentiunea ca daca esti gringo si ai descarcat vreun film de acum 20 de ani dar inca sub copyright MGM, iti intra mascatii pe fereastra imediat si ajungi sa platesti multe multe zeci de mii de dolari in settlements. Ca astea mananca traficul, nu Facebook-ul sau Tweets-urile. De aia americanii sunt comparativ mai retinuti decat verii lor canadieni cand e vorba de incarcat retele cu trafic la greu. Au nelimitat dar tot ce e legal de descarcat nu le ia mai mult de 20 GB/luna.

Nu comentez etica furtului intelectual prin internet, enunt numai o stare de fapte. Canadieni au nevoie de restrictii ca altfel descarca tot ce misca, fara osebire. :)

CRTC seeks internet billing feedback
Canada's internet regulator has launched a review of decisions that would have eliminated unlimited internet plans and drastically lowered downloading limits for customers of small internet service providers

Bell admits internet metering problem
Bell's internet usage tracker may overstate the amount of bandwidth its customers use, the company acknowledged this week on the website where people log in to view their usage data.

Numa Netflix are 20 milioane de subscribers, si asta-i numai unul din streaming providers.
Este trafic, dar ai dreptate cand zici ca nu prea se download ilegal.
Pe langa legea copyrightului implementata strict mai e si retinerea de a nu face gainarii de 1-2 dolari.

Bine, analiza a fost leftists vs. rightists si nu pro-Israel vs. anti-Israel. S-ar putea ca obiectivitatea canalului sa se reflecte numai in sensul amintit.

Asta e misto pentru un topic US-bashing.

Credit card had a 79.9% APR from First Premier Bank

Blake Ellis, staff reporter, On Monday February 7, 2011, 10:46 am EST
Toni Riss had a credit card with a 79.9% interest rate.
The 58-year-old woman from Texas thought she struck gold when she found the First Premier card, which is aimed specifically at consumers with poor credit.
"I had an accident on a motorcycle, went through bankruptcy to pay for medical expenses and my credit went to hell in a hand basket, so I was looking for credit cards for people with bad credit" Riss said.
They granted her a card with a $300 limit -- typical for new customers -- and a starting rate of 29.9%, which Riss said she considered decent given her credit score.
But about six months after opening the card -- at the end of 2009 -- she received an unwelcome surprise in the mail.
"I about had a heart attack when I got a disclosure notice saying that my starting rate of 29.9% was going up to 79.9%," said Riss. "It was ludicrous. Talk about a highway robbery."
At that same time, First Premier Bank launched a new credit card with the sky-high 79.9% rate.
The card proved popular with consumers, said First Premier Bankcard CEO Miles Beacom, but the performance was bad: "A lot of the people ran up the card, defaulted and went directly to charge off."
As a result, they dropped the rate to 59.9%. "We also tested it at 23%, 33%, 45%, but 59.9% is the one that shows the best performance and where the organization can market the product," he said.
Since then, nearly 700,000 people have signed up for the card -- and more than half of them carry a monthly balance.
And yes, that rate is completely legal. The Card Act, which was passed in late 2009 to protect consumers from predatory lenders, only prevents issuers from raising rates retroactively. Credit card issuers are free to charge whatever rate they want at the front end.
Beacom, however, denied that Riss would have had her rate jacked up. He said they only issued new cards at that APR.
Still, Riss insisted that she was offered the 79.9% rate, and that when she tried to cancel the card, it took nearly six months. And, she said, First Premier charged fees the entire time and then put her in collections when she didn't pay.
Beacom didn't deny that First Premier has high fees. In fact, he said that before the Card Act capped the charges at 25% of the credit line, First Premier relied on them to offset the risk of its customers.
"Before the new regulations we had the ability to hold specific individuals accountable for their own actions by charging these fees," he said. "Now we must spread this risk out among all our customers through higher APRs."
First Premier charges a total of $135 per year in fees. It starts with a $45 processing fee to open the account. Then there's an annual fee of $30 for the first year -- $45 for every subsequent year. Plus, there's a monthly servicing fee of $6.25 (or $75 a year).
Cash advances will cost you $5 or 3%, whichever is greater; late payments ring up at $35. The bank will also charge you $35 if a payment on your account is returned due to insufficient funds or any other reason.
But Beacom said the bank used to charge $175 for just the processing fee and annual fee alone.
And yet the customers keep coming. The company said it serves nearly 3 million customers nationwide and receives anywhere from 200,000 to 300,000 applications a month.
There is a huge -- and growing -- need for cards serving customers with "less than perfect credit," Beacom said. However, he added, the company is now more cautious due to the Card Act, so it is only opening about 50,000 accounts a month.
The company said this has forced it to cut its workforce by more than 20% last year, and it will reduce its headcount by another 400 to 500 people this year.
In an attempt to find a new product that will bring in fees and customers without being as risky, First Premier plans to start testing a card with a $700 limit and a 25% interest rate.
"The approach is much like high-risk auto insurance," Beacom said. "If you have a bad driving record, you have to pay more and once your driving record has improved, your premiums will come down When the cardholder's credit score improves, they may start to qualify for more traditional types of credit card offers with better rates and less fees."
That's what Riss has done, but no thanks to First Premier. She said she has slowly built up her credit since ditching the card and eventually qualified for a card with a much lower interest rate and fewer fees.
"I eventually picked myself up and re-established myself, but I want to be a warning to people who would ever think this is a good deal," said Riss.

oare e posibil asa ceva?   :surprise:
 
CELE MAI TARI 7 LOCURI DIN TOPUL NEBUNILOR...*

*Locul 7*

Premiul LIEBECK este numit asa dupa Stella Liebeck - de 81 ani - care a dat
in  judecata McDonalds pentru ca si-a varsat in poala o ceasca
de cafea si a castigat 2.9 milioane $...

E cunoscut faptul ca americanii se dau in judecata pentru orice rahat, dar
astea depasesc intelegerea umana,

cel de pe primul loc e pur si simplu un scenariu SF ...

*

Locul 6*

Kathleen Robertson, Austin , Texas , a primit o despagubire de 780.000 de
dolari.
Ea si-a fracturat glezna intr-un magazin de mobila, dupa ce s-a  impiedicat
de un baietel care alerga prin magazin.
Verdictul tribunalului i-a surprins pe proprietarii magazinului avand in
vedere ca boracul era chiar copilul doamnei Robertson !*

Locul 5*

La egalitate pe locul  5

este si Carl Truman de 19 ani care a castigat 74.000$ si cheltuieli pentru
ingrijiri medicale, dupa ce un vecin a trecut cu Honda Accord peste mana
lui. El se bagase pe sub masina ca sa fure rotile masinii, iar  vecinul care
era la volan, nu l-a vazut si a plecat din parcare...*

Locul 5*

Tot pe locul 5 se afla Terrence Dickson din Bristol , Pennsylvania ,care
dupa ce a spart o casa a vrut sa iasa prin garaj, dar usa acestuia   era
stricata... si usa de acces in casa se inchisese automat in urma lui.
Proprietarii erau in vacanta, asa ca hotul-minune a ramas inchis 8 zile in
garaj, hranindu-se doar cu o lada de Pepsi si un sac de mancare pentru
caini.
El a dat in judecata casa de asigurari a proprietarului pentru ca situatia
i-a cauzat stres si a castigat 500.000$*

Locul 4*

E ocupat de Jerry Williams din Little Rock Arkansas , care a fost muscat de
cur de cainele vecinului, care era legat si in curtea respectivului vecin.
El nu a castigat decat 14.500$ pentru ca juriul a considerat ca dl  Williams
a provocat "un pic" acest incident, sarind gardul si tragand cu o pusca cu
alice in caine ...*

Locul 3*

Apartine  don'soarei Amber Carson din Lancaster Pennsylvania ,care
a alunecat pe o balta de sifon intr-un restaurant si si-a rupt noada.Treaba
e ca balta fusese facuta chiar de don'soara, care aruncase un pahar cu sifon
in capul prietenului ei, si probabil ratase... A castigat 113,500 $.*

Locul 2*

Kara Walton din Claymont Delaware a incercat sa intre pe geamul unei toalete
de la un club de noapte pentru a nu plati 3.5$ la intrare,a alunecat si si-a
spart doi dinti. A dat in judecata clubul si a castigat 12.000 $ si
cheltuielile stomatologice.*

Locul 1 cu coronita*

Merv Grazinski din Oklahoma City , a cumparat o rulota cat o casa, si cand
se deplasa pe autostrada a fixat viteza pe automat si s-a dus in spate sa-si
faca o cafea....  Rulota a iesit bineinteles de pe autostrada si a cazut in
sant. El a dat in judecata compania care a fabricat rulota pentru ca nu au
specificat in manualul de utilizare ca nu trebuie sa paraseasca volanul in
timp ce merge... A castigat 1.750.000$  si o noua rulota, iar compania a
modificat manualul de utilizare

cum adica? daca de pilda lui dorel ii cresc astia asigurarea la masina ca umbla beat, in ce fel poate sa paseze costurile asigurarii americanului  canadianului de rind? cerind preturi umflate gospodarilor care-l cheama la sapat prin pivnite? poate ca da, o face o data de doua ori dar pe urma oamenii aceia de rind isi dau seama si ma cheama pe mine sa le lucrez, ca doar in toronto se stie ca eu nu obisnuiesc sa beau in timpul zilei si ca fac preturi cinstite.
