  1. The Dell laptop that I overpaid for in the PH has this label on it. Fortunately, I never had to call for help.
  2. I'm just pointing out the possibility of me being in the the 10 percent group where it was not effective. It's a possibility... isn't it?... and if it's a possibility, why should I go through all of the negative side-effects for nothing? I'd rather wait for a better vaccine (i.e., one without negative side-effects) to come along.
  3. GeoffH, my mistake (my bad). The truth is that I actually read it correctly but I typed my comments incorrectly. I really meant to say that only 9 out of 10 people have shown positive results from the Pfizer vaccine, which gives me just a 10 percent chance of it ever working for me. I'll skip on the Pfizer vaccine--instead, I'll keep wearing my mask when necessary, wash and sanitize my hands, keep my distance from strangers and avoid large crowds (esp. if DJT is there). Remember, the Pfizer vaccine requires a second shot, which is probably also full of awful side effects.
  4. Now that the schools are having actual classrooms again (instead of virtual classes) and they are collecting all of the chromebooks, I’m going to give my Dell laptop to my daughter. I’ve already ordered a high end Dell desktop, which was reasonably priced because of Black Friday sales. Why do I need a laptop, since I do most things on my smart phone anyway whenever I’m away from home.
  5. I’m already in my home country, but the reports about the vaccine’s side effects are sounding almost as bad (or maybe even worse) as actually contracting COVID-19. Plus, studies have shown that the vaccine only works on one out of 10 people. So, I’m going to just keep wearing my mask and washing my hands for the time being. https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.nbcnews.com/news/amp/ncna1247485
  6. Filipinos have told me that Americans fight way too many wars, and that they always seem to be very busy and extremely stressed.
  7. My point is that we have many unfilled positions in the high tech field, and the government, as well as private industry, is not doing enough to train American citizens to fill those positions. If there was any possible way to fill those positions by American citizens, by all means, do it. If we fall behind the rest of the world with high tech, which now includes robotics, we could have a similar scenario to possibly losing the space race to the USSR/Russia. For the most part, the US won the space race by utilizing former Nazi rocket scientists, with Werner von Braun at the forefront
  8. Good point but... Visa Rejections for Tech Workers Spike Under President Due to the high demand for tech skills, H-1B visas have always been coveted and competitive. But denial rates have more than doubled since 2016. While campaigning to become president, Donald President promised to overhaul the H-1B visa program. Denial rates for both new applications and extensions have more than doubled since he took office.

  9. On the contrary, the USA has a very long history of poor (and often under-educated) immigrants becoming successful and powerful in the USA, who improved the USA and never dragged it down. These Iconic Figures of American History Were All Immigrants Erin Blakemore Nov 12, 2015
  10. You seem to be forgetting that race and racism may seem to be very logical and sensible to the person in charge. President wants fewer immigrants from “shithole countries” and more from places like Norway He reportedly made the racist remarks during a meeting Thursday. President President reportedly referred to Haiti and countries in Africa as “shithole countries” and called for more immigrants from places like Norway at an Oval Office meeting with lawmakers, two people briefed on the meeting told the Washington Post on Thursday night. https://www.vox.com/2018/1/11/16880750/
  11. I believe that the true purpose was to cut down on the number of visas being issued. The American King only likes immigrants when they're in line to be his next wife... and/or have very fair complexions. As far as costs, they keep on rising and rising for the applicants, so I don't see that as a valid reason to shut down the USCIS offices at US Embassies.
  12. I'm not understanding why you're taking the non-immigrant path if you’re married. The K-1 visa is only for engaged couples, not married couples. It’s the whole 90 day fiancé scenario. I filed for immigrant visas (an IR-1 for my wife and an IR-2 for my step-daughter), but that was during the days of having a USCIS field office open at the US Embassy in Manila, when Direct Consular Filing (DCF) was available and it took less than 2 months from initial filing to getting the two visas approved. With the closing of the USCIS field office(s), you’re stuck with filing with the USCIS in
  13. Stop Facebook? I wish that it was stopped in the USA, at least during presidential elections. There are so many Russian and Chinese trolls on there, that I can see how some gullible people will believe what they see and let it influence their decision on election day in the States. Here's one such example: Facebook said that they'll remove them but I think that it's a bit too late.
