Cable Television History/AND THE NEXT PHASE

Cable Television History.

http://www.fcc.gov/encyclopedia/evolution-cable-television

What I find interesting is! That on over-the-air (Broadcast) Tv is that ever since the advent of HDTV. There has been more channels added by local broadcasters.

And I was thinking: “Could this be the next phase of cable?” Because of the most reliable thing about cable is the fact of it’s rates keep going up as sure as the next day will come.

As for programing. Cable is narrow! Broadcasting wide! I mean. How many channels can we really watch even at one time? One one TV? Given the addition of extra channels on broadcast TV. It’s free,There’s no bill, It’s all a matter of finding the right antenna and positioning it as we did before when we had analog.  Of if you! who are like me! DX’er’s! Love to tinker with the broadcast receivers & antennas! move this here, that there and so on.

So far here in CLeveland, Ohio USA! We have a local weather radar, lifestyle, antenna TV, METV, GET-TV, Escape, GRIT, Bounce And on ION-TV they have HSN & QVC as well as normal programming.

But always keep in mind! It does depend on where you are and the elevation of your location that can give you the best reception and more channels.

And  with more people cutting the cable due to the costs! Why not?

BBC – Capital – The slippery slope of getting away with small stuff

BBC – Capital – The slippery slope of getting away with small stuff.

I worked at a Company where there was a time. When the Company did have ethics. But as years went by! So did the ethics. That! When I worked there. The Company bought the union out! So they could have the freedom in whom goes! And Who stays!

 

At the same time! Their own blue collar employees were helping themselves to the companies equipment by getting up way early and getting to work and helping themselves to anything they wanted! The one’s who had keys to the place was no better. But! No one was the wiser either.

 

I worked at another Company where at one time! We were so busy. The Company hired anyone who was a warm body! At one point! One of the Newbie learned how to put hangers on the yearly calendars. Now! These calendars were not to be issued to the employees until the clients calendars were sent to 75 percent of the country. But this newbie waited until the evening when he came back and made calendars for him to sell downtown for half price whiles we were making them.

 

The long & short of it!

 

Even if you think your employer may/may not have cameras that you can see! They can still track down if they so desire. Who was where, when. Let’s just hope that the cams are not in focus or at least not working.,

WILL THE WORKPLACE EVER CHANGE?

I have been working since I was 17 years old. And even from that time on. Each company has their own way of ding things. Old machines, old bosses, old mgt., old ways of thinking, and on. 

The only time when a company did change! Was when it was bought by someone and they decided to go metric. Some machines that were there were able to convert to the system. In the meantime! All was the norm.

It’s the old saying: “If it’s not broke!” “Don’t fix it!”

BBC – Capital – The problem with smart people.

How many times in the past! Have we came up with a solution to a problem(s) at work? Only to get dist by our bosses? This article speaks for us in such mega volumes!,

 

It seems like management is just looking for someone to either find blame on. Or! Someone who they thin can handle it. Not how much they have learned on the job or elsewhere (Even though most employers do not check ref’s!).,

 

My favorite quote from this is: “But it turns out that the best technology,doesn’t, always win, just like the, smartest people, do, not always succeed.”

As you can see! There is money to be made from fracking. But! At what cost? When I first heard about it. I did not like it! Chemicals in the water to extract the natural gas? When the gas is extracted. Where does the rests of the chemicals go? It has to go somewhere?

For companies! It’s an easy way to get at the natural gas. For us not so. Fracking is being blamed for contaminating water supplies, even earthquakes. All for profit.

What happens if companies extracted all the chemicals from the earth? Then what?
