Satellite Data is extrapolated based on well known and mathmatically quantifiable conversion formulas not some random application of guesses and adjustments done to surface temps which, against all statistical odds, happens overwhelming in one direction.

I tell them I wired the money and then give them a fake number to claim it. Then when they contact me, I tell them I turned two numbers around and give them another fake number. Love jacking with them. Sent one into a strip club in London to collect the money I owed him since I would was in town and would be there.

So would you agree that Taylor's article is misleading? While you reserve judgment on whether total polar ice has reduced for the perfectly valid reason that you want modeling to be better verified, he looks only at 2D polar ice extent and tells readers that Global Warming Not Causing Any Polar Ice Retreat. He knows full well that ice extent is not the full story. (And he probably knows full well…

I doubt you'll see the police do much unless real money is lost. You have to get a warrant to trace the #. Then you're likely across state lines or countries and all they can do is report to another police dept to take investigate and care of it. And if no money has been lost there's not exactly a big payoff for them to investigate. I'm not sure attempted theft is even a crime.

Illinois companies to shed more than 1,700 jobs

2 years, 7 months ago by Paige Traeder

Eight Illinois companies plan to shed a total of 1,708 jobs in the next two months due to closings and restructurings

Eight Illinois companies plan to shed a total of 1,708 jobs in the next two months due to closings and restructurings, according to figures released in the September Worker Adjustment and Retraining Notification Act. The report is released monthly by the Department of Commerce and Economic Opportunity.

The largest job cuts in the Chicago area will come from American Airlines, which may lay off as many as 987 workers at O'Hare International Airport as the Fort Worth, Tex.-based airline goes through a bankruptcy reorganization.

American sent layoff warning notices to more than 11,000 employees in September, according to the Associated Press. But a spokeswoman says it's still too early to tell the exact impact of the company's downsizing in Chicago because employees may still choose voluntary exits.

“Our workforce has the ability to take early retirements, leaves of absences with travel benefits and the like,” spokeswoman Mary Frances Fagan wrote in an email. “As per the requirements of different state governments, we sent out thousands of letters across the country recently, but that doesn't mean that all who got a letter will be laid off.”

Elsewhere, Book Wholesalers Inc. will lose 110 jobs in northwest suburban McHenry as its owner, west suburban River Grove-based Follett Corp., closes the company, which provides children's books to libraries. Follett plans to sell the assets to North Carolina-based Baker & Taylor Inc.

Downstate, some 310 employees stand to lose their jobs when a Bombardier Recreational Products plant in Benton shutters. The Canadian boatmaker, one of the largest employers in Southern Illinois' Franklin County, decided to close the plant due to a decline of sales in the marine industry.

Other layoffs in the September report were:

Sears Product Rebuild Center in west suburban Melrose Park will close and lay off 50 people. A company representative was not immediately available for comment.

Saks Fifth Avenue will shed 60 jobs when it closes its north suburban Highland Park store.

Vonachen Services, Inc., a janitorial services supplier to the Caterpillar Inc. facility in downstate Pontiac, will lay off 50 employees. A company representative was not immediately available for comment.

Regional Elite Airline Services LLC, a subsidiary of Atlanta-based Delta Air Lines that handles ticketing and gate services and acts as a regional ground handler for other airlines, will lose 60 jobs in Moline, near the Iowa state border, as a result of a lost contract.

Kmart will lay off 81 people and close a store in downstate Fairview Heights. According to a local news reports, the owner of the store's strip mall plans to raze the current mall and redevelop it.
