What is Operational Leasing?


Maybe you have already heard in the rent-a-car field about this term and you are not enough clear about what it means and how can it be useful to you, reason for which you're avoiding it. Hence here are a few details about this operational leasing and about the way that it can help you. This is a solution to purchasing a car for a good price or just for using it for a long period of time. By renting a car on operational leasing, from example from rent a car Bucharest, you practically have it available for a determined period of time, but long.

Then, at the end of the contract you can purchase it for a particularly advantageous and good price. When you're renting a car on operational leasing, you benefit from the rent-a-car company from motor vehicle liability insurance and CASCO insurance included, inspections and quality repairs performed on time, from unlimited number of kilometres and from a replacement car to the initial one in case of accident or failure of any kind.

Dude!


Google is not a very reliable tool, by itself, for any kind of serious research, unless of course if you are in that particularly privileged position of having leisure time. Having said that, I was trying to look up some kind of discussion online regarding how the usage of the term “dude” crosses over gender lines in different social spaces - specifically, I have heard women call each other “dude” before, but I wonder what women call each other when men aren’t around? Most of the conversations I’ve found so far are (of course) male-centered, e.g. “is it okay for me to call a chick ‘dude’?”, etc. so, if you are a woman and you are reading this, do you all call each other something informal that is akin to or parallel in usage to “dude” but in fact different? As a postscript, let me suggest the filter of “besides ‘girfriend’”, which seems to have been indelibly co-opted by gay men. Thanks for participating!

An Eye for An Eye


A large percentage of our species may not make it through the next hundred years due to the ravages of the mindless, pitiless greed of our enemies. Our children education is very important and their children may inherit a world in which safe drinking water is not only as precious as gold - which it is now, if only we would see it as such - but also just as scarce and that’s just water. Then there’s food. Not to mention the awakening of superviruses and the threat of global pandemics. To say nothing of the inevitable breakdown of a society utterly dependent upon a technological resource that is due to run out.


We may be able to put the brakes on, but we can’t stop the crash. All we can do for them is arm them with knowledge. We must tell them the truth about what has happened. we must proclaim with true humility every mistake and misstep and misjudgment; we must catalog every single lie. and then we must tell them, “please learn to be wise from our foolishness”. We can’t stop the crash, but we might - just - be able to give them the tools to walk away from the flaming wreckage of this empire, bloodied but unbowed. oh, let us pray it be so.

Revisions are Worse than Mondays


So... last night I figured something out. Or rather Di, one of my lovely CPs, said it and I had my light bulb moment. And here is what she said, paraphrased... At some point you have to call it good or revisions will never end. I hadn't thought about it before, but she was right. I have different CPs with different strengths. And after it has been through all of them one chapter will change so much, it's practically new. So, I ask you, how do I know if it's any good? It's already been through all of my CPs and now it's completely different changed so much it may as well be a first draft. Again. But she's right, I have to just call it good. It's been through the wringer. Issues have been addressed. And now it's up to my betas to tell me whether or not it totally blows. Anyone else treading the shark-infested revision waters with me? How are you doing? When do you "call it good"?
