The student's name must be printed on the reverse of the U-Pass for it to be valid. If he is caught with a card with no name, Razor will likely have to print his name on the card while in the presence of the person checking fares. That then puts his girlfriend at risk when she needs to use the card.

Your bigger issue would've been if the UPASS said SFU and you were going to UBC. (Doesn't match) Otherwise you're all good
So generic, that it has a unique serial code on each of them

If Translink want, there are ways to track them.

If the company who developed the issuing system wanted to add an additional layer of fraud prevention while still using the present card design, they should have designed the vending kiosks to assign that unique serial to the student ID swiped to obtain the card. From that they could generate a simple database which could be referenced with ease.

Maybe that is already in place; I can't find any documentation to confirm it.

Lyndsey Scott - Computer Programming Model



Quote:
One look at Lyndsey Scott's rťsumť will have you concluding that she's made it big as far as the modeling industry goes. Her CV is brimming with appearances on some of the industry's most esteemed runways, including Gucci, Prada, Calvin Klein, and, yes, the pinkest of all, Victoria's Secret. She's also booked campaigns with MAC and DKNY, as well as a plethora of other glossy spreads. But, the five-foot-nine American beauty has another trick up her sleeve, and it doesn't have a thing to do with posing. When Scott isn't killing it on the runway, she's a certified computer programmer.

After graduating from Amherst in 2006 with degrees in computer science and theater, the model taught herself Python, Objective C, and iOS, and she's been building apps on the side ever since. But, she wasn't spending time on just any projects. The first app she released to the public benefited a charity called Educate!, which sponsors Ugandan scholars. And, for her second, Scott created a method for models to keep a digital version of their portfolio on hand to take to castings. We can imagine that's a lot of coding to do in between Fashion Weeks and go-sees.

In an industry where youth and physical appearance are so highly valued and celebrated, it's wonderful and refreshing to see Scott stand as a symbol of beauty, heart, and serious brain power in both the tech and fashion worlds. Want to read more of this mega-star model/coder's story? Click the link ahead. (PandoDaily)


This is why I love Victoria's Secret models, there is always something more to them than what meets the eye, they have brains. They always seem so approachable and just like your every day normal girl next door type, so sexy. She is so much hotter after learning this information.

Jerry Seinfeld is so damn friendly, even in a Reddit AmA: Jerry Seinfeld here. I will give you an answer. : IAmA

Not only does he thank people for being fans, as typically celebrities do in these, but also takes the time to point out and compliment particularly good or astute questions people ask. Pretty nice to see.

I saw that before I left for work......... what a complete ass. He's an embarrassment to just about everything he stands for. The NBA, blacks, Americans, athletes, men, crackheads, the human species, carbon life forms from Earth, etc.

If he were a boxer, I'd say too many hits to the head........... does he have children? If so, let's hope whatever it is he has, skips a few hundred generations. If I were in the same room as him, I'd just
WOW!


The difference between smart and dumb - there is no limit to dumb.


Were there ten guys there? He may have miscounted........ LOLOLOLOLOLOLOL.

With the apprenticeship, can't you find a new place? That apprenticeship seems like a great opportunity, and a shared place is 400/month?

Dang.

I think the issue is, Rodman was just pissed the guy would ask a question like that. Rodman knows Kim, and if he said anything dumb, him and his men would get executed or whatever.

I thought it was a dumb question as well, what else can you say? "Yeah, I'll talk to my crazy friend and plead for a guy I don't know for his release. And essentially jeopardize my and my entourage's life."

You can't simply tell a person raised with different cultural values and mindset to simply have some empathy. The guy will go nuts and think you're disrespecting him in front of his nation.

He's got a few Children. In fact at his Hall of Fame inductee, he said in his speech that he wished he was a better father and husband.

On another note, for all you RS'ers that know your insurance stuff, I've got a question.

My insurance expired two days and and I chose not to renew. Is there anything I have to do now that it has expired? Was I supposed to let them know I wasn't re-insuring? Or return my plates?

I'm thinking I will probably end up re-insuring in a month or two, already hate transiting 1.25hr each way to class. Do I keep my plates then?
Thanks in advance.
inb4 call in and ask. just wondering if anyone wanted to share their knowledge

You don't have to do anything but you are subject to risk now.
Since you do not have storage insurance, and if anything happens to your car, its tough luck.

Depending on your parking situation, you can get storage insurance. Other than that, no, your policy just expired and you don't have to do anything.

Might not be getting storage, sisters in town and I offered her the car until I decide to renew, so she might be putting on temp.

Oh ya another question I wanted to ask lol. She has an Ontario license; can she get temp insurance without getting a BC license? It will only be a month of insurance

You should call an agent.

Ideally, you could insure it but put her down as the principle operator. However, if she fucks up, it'll probably go against your premium.

On the other hand, if you put the car in her name, she'd have to pay for reg, plates, etc. and you'd have to do the same to put the car back in your name.

Dang.
Vacancies in Calgary are 0%.

Factor in poor transportation and everything else...

I could probably start one in Vancouver. Probably be making 12-13 an hour though compared to the 20 for a preapprenticeship here.

At least transportation isn't ass and I don't have to pay rent in Vancouver.
