My colleagues and I have had consistently bad experiences with Redfin's title/settlement company Title Forward, but this one really takes the cake.
Here's the story: Buyers under contract, everything goes smoothly toward settlement. Buyers show up, sign all their documents with Title Forward, but NEVER BRING THEIR DOWN PAYMENT! (about $700k+).
Turns out the buyers are trying to scam and never had the money, but that's a side note.
Title Forward completes the transaction, even goes so far as to record the new deed with the County, so these buyers are the new owners of the house, even though the transaction is incomplete.
This screw up is incredibly egregious and is a complete shitshow to unravel and pull back. Attorneys are obviously involved, there are a number of lawsuits resulting. Any reputable title/settlement company would have never allowed this transaction to close. Colossal neglect and stupidity.
Silver lining is that the sellers have an excellent agent (not me) who knows... keep reading on reddit ➡
I am creating our business plan for our marketing company that we just started 1 - 2 months ago. We currently have 13 clients pending (contracts to start 2020). I'll list the 13 companies below. Our marketing company will be specifically real estate niche related. With a huge immediate client pool, having an incredibly strong plan is important.
My resources as it currently stands are/have been...
- Myself (lead generation, project management)
- Business partner (investor, brokerage owner)
- Graphic Designer (on team)
- Graphic Designer (on team, but only contracted for certain projects)
- Videographer (on team)
We more or less have no experience in the field. I learned everything I know from YouTube, Podcasts, Google Certifications, books, conversations with marketing venues, and the small amount of experience I've had in the last 6-10 months of dabbling with Facebook ADs, Google ADs, & other SMALL projects.

People tend to feel a sense of guilt when it comes to leaving a job like they owe them or their coworkers something. That is because America preaches this "family" culture that we are such a strong team all working together. In reality, if they need to close your entire division, they will do it without hesitation. If they can outsource something cheaper, they will do it. You do not owe them anything and if you see a better opportunity for yourself or your family, please take it and make your own financial future.
Hi! I'm Josh, the co-founder and CTO of Prime Roots.
I'm a bioengineer and computer scientist. I started Prime Roots out of the UC Berkeley Alternative Meat Lab with my co-founder who is a culinologist and microbiologist.
We make meatless bacon that acts, smells, and tastes like bacon from an animal. Our technology is made with our koji based protein which is a traditional Japanese fungi (so in between plant-based and lab grown). Our protein is a whole food source of protein since we grow the mycelium and use it whole (think of it like roots of mushrooms).
Our investors were early investors in Beyond Meat and Impossible Foods and we're the only other alternative meat company they've backed. We know there are lots of great questions about plant-based meats and alternative proteins in general so please ask away!

Around 1 week ago a company of bots, literally a company because there are hundreds, if not over a thousand lvl 60 bots doing Stratholme on Classic Servers right now, started breaking the game economy and we need the community help to bring Blizzard to do something about it before it's too late. These bots do all the same thing, they are a group of 1 Priest, 1 Druid, 3 Mages, they go inside Strath Living, farm there and then go back to Undercity, sell stuff on npc, post Righteous Orb and Pristine Black Diamond on AH and send mail to their main account with the gold, they do the exact same path every single time, they are 101% obvious bots and it's infested, like a plague, on my server, Incendius Horde there's 4 groups, 20 of them, when you see them in Undercity, how their posting in auction works, always cutting the cheapst one buy a set amount, always setting time at Very Long, cutting even their own price, it makes so obvious that they are a bot.

INFO: Garena is the publisher of League of Legends in Southeast Asia. Riot partnered with them around 2009-2010 to bring LoL in the region. Garena managed how the game was ran and was given the freedom to modify the client, its assets, create their own sales, promos, events, etc. It was a very decent and publicly well-liked company back then but alarming issues began to crawl and got worse in the past 3-5 years.

Long time lurker here, first time poster. Hopefully it fits.
My work involves me having to install hardware in all of my employers assets. This makes me fairly unavailable for all my other responsibilities, but it only happens on occasion so its normally no big deal. It only gets costly if I'll be away for extended amounts of time.
As it so happens we acquired another project a couple states away in New Mexico, so I needed to go on site for a week or two to get all the assets in line. I drive the ~14 hours to get on site and arrive on a Monday only to find out that my cell provider has no towers in the area, so my phone is effectively a high tech rolodex. I tell them I'll need them to pick me up a little prepaid phone on whatever network works best in the area. I'm not picky, I just need a crappy $100 phone for the next two weeks. They tell me they'll have it waiting on me in the office Tuesday morning.
The thing about my job is I typically answer to no one besides the owner of the... keep reading on reddit ➡
This should go for plastics, toxic materials, or anything else that is a source of pollution. The cost of clean up should be covered by the people producing the products like plastic containers that go into the ocean. This would also increase the likelihood they will come up with packaging that is less harmful to the environment. Recycling programs do help but they often are not profitable enough and in some cases contribute more to the problem than to help solve it. The levels of plastics in the oceans are ridiculous. It’s time for change.
> For more than 50 years, global production and consumption of plastics have continued to rise. An estimated 299 million tons of plastics were produced in 2013, representing a 4 percent increase over 2012, and confirming and upward trend over the past years.(See: Worldwatch Institute – January 2015). In 2008, our global plastic consumption worldwide has be... keep reading on reddit ➡

I deal with insurance companies for a living. Adjusters often deny or delay benefits. For instance, I just had a Medpay adjuster try to delay benefits because the medical bills didn’t have CPT codes. I demanded the policy, which my client has an absolute right to have since it’s his own damn policy, and the adjuster just paid the benefits instead. I figured there wasn’t anything in the policy requiring CPT codes so I pushed back and the adjuster immediately caved.
Always ask for your policy, which is a written contract. That defines your and your insurer’s rights and obligations. It says when you’re entitled to benefits and what hoops you have to jump through to get them.
Edit: I've seen many folks mention the same thing so I'll address some of it here.

I'm a 23 year old woman at a company with a pretty... Old timey culture. Even though it's a programming job, where we are not customer facing, we have a "business casual" dress code. It's also got a really fucking sexist culture, I've lost patience with off color jokes and a lotttt of comments on my looks.
I started out trying to dress nice, fitted tailored slacks, fashionable blouses, hair done, nice low heels or flats. I was always modest.
And I got sooo sick of people saying shit about my body, my ass, even just the "you look reaaally nice today" that guys would never say to each other.
So I started naturally tending towards my frumpier things.
And when I went shopping I tended towards looser fitting stuff. Slacks with wide square legs that were loose in the butt and would hide my butt and legs. Several sizes above my usual size. Long cardigans that were big and warm but not fitted. Frumpy-ass loafers. I also cut off most of my hair and got some big tortose shell glasses that... keep reading on reddit ➡
So ride sharing apps came into my area a few years ago, which caused most people to switch over to them rather than using the preexisting taxi companies. This caused all but one of the taxi companies to go out of business and the one that is left is notoriously unreliable.
The problem is that most of the ride sharing drivers only work during peak hours, namely hours where businesses or bars are open. If you need a ride in the early hours of the morning there's no longer any options available to you around here.
This is a problem because the local airport just expanded its hours to allow earlier flights so we have a bunch of guests showing up at the desk at 4am in the morning in a total panic about not having a ride to get to their 5am flight. My hotel has a shuttle but the shuttle drivers are still scheduled around the previous airport hours and our owner has proved unwilling to approve extra hours to their schedule.
Its just been a mess from every angle.
So I(20f), my parents and two other familys decided to go on a week long spa vacation to the italian part of the Alps.
One day part of our group decided to do a bit of sightseeing, me included, and took a bus to the nearest city. The bus ride took about 20 minutes.
On our was back our bus driver was a young man, probably in his mid-twenties. One stop after we got on two young men, also mid-twenties, got on who clearly were very good friends with the bus driver.
After a few stops the bus driver asked us where we wanted to get off, we told him our stop and then he got back to talking to his friends.
Then something strange happened: The bus got off its official route. At first we didn't notice but after some time we realized this wasn't the way back to our hotel. After some time the bus stopped in the middle of nowhere right in front of a house, no official bus stop im sight. The first friend got off.
Then we realized the bus driver was driving his friends home. My mom asked him if... keep reading on reddit ➡

For the last 2 days, I was suffering from really severe abdominal pain. Unfortunately, it got to the point of unbearable at 4 AM, so my only options were to either tough it out with some Tylenol until urgent care opened in the morning, or go to the ER. Given how expensive the ER was, I really, really didn’t want to go if I didn’t have to. I looked up health crisis line online, and found that some insurance companies offered free ones for customers. Sure enough, mine did. I gave them a call, was transferred to an NP, and relayed my symptoms. As soon as I mentioned the constant pain was in my right lower quadrant and was really severe, she told me it was best I seek treatment within the hour, meaning the ER. Went there, had a CT done, and then had surgery to remove my appendix since it was massively inflamed.
TL:DR Check with your health line if you need a professional recommendation to seek treatment late at night.

I doubt that this is the last that we'll hear from Dame tonight. He has never looked as angry as he did tonight after the missed calls, and he tends not to filter his thoughts.
