Re: “Morgan School is Cherry Neighborhood's Last Attachment to a Rich Past

The successful Brotherhood is national and international in membership. It is open to all nationalities, races and creeds. The Brotherhood forms an invisible legion of friends around the world, working together and helping each other. In countries where private associations or "secret societies" are outlawed, we are simply friends helping one another.

The word "occult" comes from the Latin and only means "hidden." The term is widely used in the medical field to describe medical conditions that are hidden. In popular usage, however, occult has come to mean something that is evil or a cult that "brainwashes" its members. Usually, such charges are found to be baseless.

The successful Brotherhood is an organization. It does not practice any kind of mind-control over its Members or promote anything that any sane person would consider evil or criminal. It teaches its Members how to free themselves from being dominated by others and control their own mind.

Members come from a wide variety of belief systems and may freely exercise the practice of any faith (or none) as a Member.

Membership in The successful Brotherhood is not cheap but is easily affordable by anyone. Some join having nothing more than social security or an unemployment check. you have to purchase for the items needed for your initiation once you get the items then you will been invited to the freemason lodge were your initiation will been commerce in the initiation grand and were by you will been crow fully as a new member of us then your benefit will been giving to you as a new member of the organization alright and for your initiation ceremony did not request for humans sacrifice or to take your life of your love ones and also registration is free to join and brothers and sisters if you are so much intrested of becoming our full time member you can quickly contact us now before it becomes too late and opportunities comes but once and intrested should contact us now immediately okey,OR CONTACT US ON OUR VIA EMAIL ADDRESS:TEMPLEOFSUCCESS@GMAIL.COM CALL/WHATSSAP US ON THIS FOLLOWING CONTACT NUMBER: {+2348066163720}

we are not suppose to be on the internet but because of this comments:

'I want to join occult for money.
'i want to join occult to achieve good thing in life.
'i want to join good occult fraternity to be fame.
'i want to join great Illuminati to be a success man or woman.
'i want to join Illuminati occult to be popular.
'i want to join Illuminati brotherhood to get more wealth.
we are now here for you.

Without true wisdom and inner power, the outer trappings of success are all in vain, for spirit is ascendant over matter. That which is eternal is of far greater value than that which turns to dust. The successful Brotherhood's teachings are not aimed merely towards self-aggrandizement but for the greater happiness of the Member and so that they, in turn, may bless and help others upon the path of life.

With that said, let us say that anyone, having the right knowledge, inner power and a circle of powerful friends, with grit and determination can attain to success and prosperity.

Advancement in the Brotherhood's degrees of wisdom and power can, however, translate into a virtual guarantee of lifetime security because you are building a power within yourself that can never be taken away. Success is not handed to anyone on a silver platter and only you can guarantee your future happiness.

Why not start today building that happiness, prosperity, inner power and peace by joining The successful Brotherhood? you can get us through email: Congratulation in Advance.

Re: “New Cuts and Bad Blood at Google Fiber Raise Questions About Future

This paints a very accurate picture of how TVCs are treated in the CLT, RDU and ATL markets. I was a TVC in the Raleigh market and things were/are just as toxic. And here's a newsflash...I'm not an millennial! I never felt entitled, but I did expect to be respected and treated like a human. I moved my family across the country to take this job (on my own dime), and I couldn't take it anymore after six months. After constantly being analyzed, criticized and scrutinized by my narcissistic, sociopathic boss, who has no business being in the cable industry, enough was enough. I could see the writing on the wall, and got out.

I know being laid off is never easy for anyone, but in this instance it seems to have been a blessing in disguise.

All I really learned from this story was not to hire Freda Hendley. This reads like a one-sided facebook post. How is this news?

Re: “New Cuts and Bad Blood at Google Fiber Raise Questions About Future

Local woman learns Google is a business and not a non-profit. News at 11.

Seriously, you millennials need to learn that you are not entitled to anything; if you knew it was temporary job, then you knew it wasn't going to last. Now please go back to actually contributing to society rather than being butt hurt and creating sensational journalism.

Re: “New Cuts and Bad Blood at Google Fiber Raise Questions About Future

NiceYeah,I was a TVC as well back in 2014 - 2015 (when I'd had enough and quit). I was hired for two reasons - I was told. One wad my background in construction, the other because of being able to push back with the contractor.

My first real input regarding processes was scoffed at. The second time I had something to say I had my workload doubled.

Everyone was really cliquish and I felt like I was left out a lot because I was older than most of them - like old enough to have babysat them.

Granted, I quit going to the cafeteria after a while because I didn't feel like it was necessary to continue working while trying to eat. I think that's pretty much why they provide meals and unlimited snacks (not to mention weekly happy hours)- they wanted everybody to work all the time.

It didn't help that the company actually paying mere had zero backbone when dealing with issues like this with the Google people and tried to blame me for the issues I was having.

So, to the other commenter, here is a third person from another location (Austin) that had issues.

Re: “New Cuts and Bad Blood at Google Fiber Raise Questions About Future

Google fiber has employed hundreds of people. This only shows the stories of two employees and one Google fiber location. I think a broader sample of Google fiber employees and locations would paint a different picture.

Re: “Signs of Life in Gastonia

I do have faith in Gastonia and trace my roots there back three generations. Part of Gastonia's great appeal to me is the fact that it is not a Charlotte boot licker (honestly, there was a sign on I/85 proclaiming Cabarrus County/Concord as "the jewel in Charlotte's crown" a few years ago). I have invested in the Loray Mill (pronounce that LO-ray, by the way) Village project through Preservation NC and have watched with great pride the redevelopment of the Loray (Firestone) Mill where my grandmother worked. Wisely, Preservation NC had chosen to highlight the unique history of the mill and village and its importance to Old Gastonia. The people of Gastonia--always maligned by the snootier people outside of the city-- have a shared textile heritage that carries on the great attributes of friendliness, church attendance, true Southern hospitality, and a decidedly humble carriage that help define them as good people living in a good community. Old institutions such as RO's BBQ and Tony's Ice Cream remain while similar institutions have long disappeared in Charlotte. Yes, there is great pride in Gastonia and its heritage as a "regular" town exemplifying the very motto of NC: "To be rather than to seem".

Re: “Let's Throw a Going-Away Party

Melvin Hardy should rot in prison but the women who knew should not. It was no one to protect them from being harmed. Who gets out on such a low bond after killing someone. Who to say he wouldn't have got another bond. Until the courts think about keeping victims/witnesses safe we will always have tragedies like this. You shouldn't have to decide between your safety and doing the right thing to get criminals off the streets.

Re: “Republicans Move to Legalize Concealed Carry Without Permit

I'm for changing the law on concealed carry and not having to have the permit to carry in NC. If you can carry open there is no difference in concealed both have to be ran through criminal databases and have to have all there ducks in a row , it should be the choice of the gun owner to carry in plain sight or hidden. legal gun owners are not the problem in NC the problem is people that obtain them illegally. But I do feel as though it would be a mistake to change and lower the age restrictions to 18 the age of 21 should stay in place .

Re: “Republicans Move to Legalize Concealed Carry Without Permit

That's fair, so switch it to Open Streets 704 or any other free, family-friendly event where alcohol is not sold. Although I appreciate you pointing out the gun laws I overlooked, the hypothetical situation is irrelevant, because the point was to make it, as you said, ludicrous and preposterous, as a way to hold a mirror to the type of fear mongering being carried out by gun lobbyists for decades in an effort to make everyone feel like they're unsafe if they're unarmed.

The simple takeaway from this whole bill regardless of whether three states saw declines in homicide rates, which could have been for any number of reasons is that any law enforcement officer will tell you that adding more untrained hands holding guns to a dangerous situation will only make it less safe. The fact is, the CCW permit process was not broken, and making sure folks know how to use their guns is not in any way a harmful practice.

Although I'm sure you disagree with the purposefully ridiculous way I started the story, I did make sure to include folks on both sides of the issue and in between. I appreciate your response.

Re: “Republicans Move to Legalize Concealed Carry Without Permit

If Mr. Pitkin is going to spin ludicrous fantasies in an argument about NC gun laws, he really should learn something about NC gun laws first. If you're enjoying a concert at a venue, I'm guessing you paid at the door. NCGS 14-269.3 prohibits carrying a gun into "any assembly where a fee has been charged for admission thereto" -- openly or concealed -- unless one has a concealed handgun permit. H 746 would only extend lawful permitless concealed carry to the extent open carry is already legal, which does not include paid venues. Oh, there are some venues that provide music without a cover charge? In Mr. Pitkin's ridiculous hypothetical, a gunfight started "near the bar." The same statute also prohibits permitless carry in "any establishment in which alcoholic beverages are sold and consumed." So the whole yarn really is as preposterous as it sounds -- it cannot happen under NC law now and it won't happen after H 746 passes.

Thirteen states, home to over 30 million people, now have constitutional (legal permitless) carry, and teenagers who have never fired a gun mowing down innocent bystanders in a rush to join a gunfight has happened precisely zero times. According to FBI data, Alaska, Arizona, and Wyoming all experienced a decrease in handgun murders following the passage of their constitutional carry laws. Right here in North Carolina, gun control shills predicted blood in the streets when we first passed the concealed carry law, and every time we have expanded its reach or eased its restrictions. But, to the apparent consternation of those who would love to ban all guns, the people who choose to take responsibility for their own self defense are overwhelmingly a responsible bunch. Unlike Mr. Pitkin, they actually know the laws governing the carry of firearms, and they tend to observe them scrupulously.

Re: “Republicans Move to Legalize Concealed Carry Without Permit

I am personally for this bill but since there seems to be so much concern, maybe a compromise would work. Maybe still eliminate the permit needed to conceal a weapon but keep the training

Re: “Republicans Move to Legalize Concealed Carry Without Permit


Fair point. I did explain in the article that obtaining a CCW permit would still be a choice for gun owners, but you're right that the use of the word "eliminate" in the original headline was misleading. It has been changed. Thanks for reaching out.

Re: “Republicans Move to Legalize Concealed Carry Without Permit

Reporter Ryan Pitkin misleading states that "North Carolina legislators [seek] to eliminate [the] concealed carry permitting process."

Not true. State legislators are leaving in place the option to obtain a North Carolina concealed carry permit, but eliminating the requirement to have the permit to carry concealed handguns in North Carolina.

Persons possessing the North Carolina concealed carry permit will also be able to carry concealed in a number of other states using their North Carolina concealed carry permit, and will be also exempt from federal school zone gun carry restrictions.
