Na vaša pitanja odgovarat ću od 18:00 do 21:00
Prije no što danas počnem s odgovorima, htjela bih samo pojasniti kako, unatoč dugoj karijeri u financijama i reviziji, nisam porezni niti investicijski savjetnik pa moje odgovore shvatite isključivo kao osobna razmišljanja koja rado dijelim na svom blogu. Za konkretne, pogotovo investicijske savjete, potražite pomoć stručnjaka ili još bolje, napravite svoje vlastite analize. Svrha ovoga što ću napisati danas, kao i onoga što objavljujem na blogu, je isključivo edukacija o tim temama i moja želja osposobiti što više ljudi za samostalno upravljanje svojim financijama. Zato sve što dolje napišem predstavlja isključivo moje osobno mišljenje i ne predstavlja savjetovanje bilo kojeg tipa.
Ako vam je navedeno ok, nastojat ću odgovoriti najbolje što mogu na što je moguće više vaših pitanja.
TLDR at bottom.
This tale was told to me as a warning when I started on my first post-college job. I am relating it exactly as it was told to me. This occurred in the early '80s, so those of you who've grown up with the Internet may not understand how we did things in the olden days. There were no smart-phone apps to show Q-codes for airline tickets. They were paper. With red carbon mess. Reservations were done by phone. It was primitive by today's standards.
Players (names have been changed of course) – Sandra – super-sweet secretary loved by all (true – I worked with her. She was amazing). Fred – Sandra's boss. Tom – local VP. Bigshot – incoming manager from back East. Al – lead engineer on the team.
This occurred in Salt Lake City, which if you don't know, family was a HUGE part of culture. Even at work, family matters took precedence, and local management knew this and allowed for it. Well, Bigshot's office minions in another corporate location noticed some slight irregularities in timecards, like days off without pre-approved vacation requests. So he got himself transferred to the Salt Lake City office to 'straighten things out'. He was pushy, and naturally, he was quickly hated. Bigshot ended up as a middle manager between Tom (at the top) and Fred.
One morning, Sandra got a call from her daughter was unexpectedly in town and wanted to have lunch. Naturally, Fred and Tom gave her the okay. Bigshot didn't like that, although it wasn't explained why. Maybe it wasn't 'by the book', maybe he was upset that Sandra went over his head. In any event, he decided to stick his nose in. But rather than just say 'no', he dropped a last-minute urgent travel request on Sandra's desk, and it had to be done because he expected to fly out that afternoon. Sandra was heartbroken that she wouldn't get to see her daughter, but she had her work responsibilities.
Stopping by to drop off some paperwork, Al noticed that Sandra looked a little down – a huge change from her normal chipper mood. He naturally asked why, and Sandra explained. Al told her (he had no authority, btw) to go have lunch and "we'll take care of it."
Bigshot got his travel packet, got on the plane that afternoon, and flew off to his meeting. That's when things started to go wrong. The rental car reservation was invalid, and there were no cars available at any of the agencies – all had a 'hold' on them pending confirmation from some clients. So Bigshot ended up getting a Rent-a-Wreck. (for those too... keep reading on reddit ➡
Hi everyone! We're happy to have Sandra Saad, the voice of Kamala Khan, join us for a live stream next Tuesday at 2PM PT.
Sandra is an amazing person and she is looking forward to being on the stream. I personally can't wait for you guys to meet her since she is literally Kamala and loves the community. Writer Hannah MacLeod is also joining us since she wrote Kamala's story in our game, so it will be a Kamala-focused stream!
Submit your questions for Sandra and Hannah to answer in this thread!
She in many ways was an "invisible" American at the time of Pearl Islands. As in, she was part of the "working help" who oftentimes are taken advantage of by the more high profile Americans and gets no real attention from the media other than the ocaassional "the poor working class in the news."
Survivor, just like really any show, casts primarily the top 10% of Americans in terms of wealth. Or if not wealth, something about them stands out in such a large way, such as "going from the Projects to an Ivy League School" or just an Ivy League School in general. The same goes for TV shows, how many TV shows have you seen that revolve around a working class family/individual?
Sandra was just your typical working class woman. One thing I loved about her bio. was saying her proudest accomplishment was going to community college. There was a few things that stood out a little bit from her such as the fact that she was in the military and was prettier than the average person. Even than, she was never a size two or looked like a supermodel, also its not that uncommon for many "invisible" Americans to be in the military at some point.
Survivor doesn't cast many people like this so its cool that one of the few they did was able to really represent in such a strong way. It was also cool to see how clearly of a difference you could see the money made in her life. In PI you could tell she was not having an easy go in life (her audition tape was literally her saying how much she needed the money) and her rugged behavior was mainly natural. By the time her last two seasons came around she still acted all tough and gruff but it definately seemed a lot more put on and she overall seemed much happier and satisfied in life.
I finished my rematch of HvV and this question has been on my mind. I wasn't around when the season was airing. For the people who watched live, how was the fan reaction? Does Russell get the vote or would Parv edge him out?
Here’s how this works:
EDIT: Option 2 lists "Robert Downy Jr." instead of the intended "Robert Downey Jr." I apologize for this grammatical error. Option 2: Robert Downy Jr. will remain as the option meant to represent Robert Downey Jr.'s values within the Google Trends data.
You may not believe me but my grandma is a big survivor fan since it aired(i wasnt born yet) she told me that when she saw the opening credits for HvV and she saw sandra, she said to my grandpa"if she plays the same way she did on her first season she's going to win again "and she was right. When i finally started watching the show, it just so happened that pearl islands was my favorite season so when I started watching HvV my winner pick were rupert and sandra and of course sandra won and I couldn't be more happier. IMO sandra has a very underrated type of gameplay. Good night
Last night there was a QNA hosted with Sandra answering a ton of questions. Throughout the night I tried to write down as much as I could to post here and I think you guys might be interested.
Not all of this may be 100% accurate because some of the questions were kind of rapid fire, but I did the best I could. All of the answers come straight from Sandra, but keep in mind that some of this stuff occurred over a decade ago so obviously it can't be treated as gospel.
What is your favorite memory playing survivor?
I think my favorite memory is dumping the fish out after the Rupert vote. After the vote everyone was talking about how delicious it was gonna be and how they couldn’t wait to cook it so I took the fish, slipped on a vine, and it spilled everywhere.
On Winners at War, if somebody had screwed you in the same way that FairPlay did with the Rupert vote, what would be your equivalent of dumping out the fish?
I don’t know what I would’ve done. We didn’t have a bucket of fish on Winners at War that I could dump out. There was never really a time I thought about that because I never came back to camp scorned in Winners at War.
Was there anything behind the Burton vote that we didn’t see?
No. We didn’t know that the 2 boys on reward were saying that we couldn’t make a move until we watched it. At first we were quiet when the boys left but then we just went into it. We started plotting against Burton and when they came back they were aggressively asking us questions all individually and we all denied it. For the most part the boys thought there was no way possible that they were going to lose.
What were your favorite and least favorite tribes that you’ve been on in Survivor?
My least favorite tribe was the second swap in Game Changers when it was just me and Varner and we were with Sarah and Ozzy and Andrea etc.
My favorite tribe would be my tribe on Winners at War. (Original Dakal)
Would you have voted for Tony, Natalie or Michele if you were on the jury in Winners at War?
100% Tony because I know what kind of a player he is. He’s been planning for 3 years after I took him out in Game Changers and I knew he wasn’t coming to play games this time. The fact that he forced Sarah to bring people to the well instead of hearing information straight from Sarah and the fact that Sarah allowed that was impressive. He didn’t trust anybody and he still got people to do anything he wanted.
**When did you learn that FairPlay lied about... keep reading on reddit ➡
Does anyone remember all the sad lines Sandra said about the bus driver and people using her bathroom? It was such a creepy, sad, hilarious running joke.
Here are a few I remember:
So I really missed Sandra Oh and with the Grey's Anatomy writers bringing so many characters back in season 17, it dawned on me that we may never get a Cristina Yang citing again so ...I was like cool...Killing EVE.
I watched portions of season 1 before but now I decided to just start it over and catch up until the current season. Anyhow, I like Sandra Oh in this series. Villanelle is an easily likable antihero that I haven't found cause to sympathize with just yet. She is rather entertaining though. The one kill I do believe was a mercy kill was with Gabriel in the hospital. I could be wrong though.
