Gotta say, Lor's English is pretty good too considering... O0

I would rather just take one lump sum and go through the process than many deliberate withdrawals under radar which is considered structuring. Yep, withdrawing your own money in a suspicious manner can be illegal. Now that is a slap in the face.

Yep, that can be deemed as "suspicious" by some...

Plus one has to think about protecting that money for several days too... ???

There's no stupid "P" in this photo so "how do we know it's legit".. ;D ;D ;D:




Anyways, when I worked in the collection division of the USPS back in the 90s, I worked all Sundays and Holidays because the letter carriers are off on those days. The express mail still needs to go out regardless and it's guarantee to be delivered next day or the customers get their money back.

Instead of postal trucks, we drive GSA cars so customers were surprised to see us delivering their express mail on those days. A kid and his mom gave me a big hug during one Christmas because they didn't grandma's gift was going to make on time until I surprised them that Christmas morning... ;D O0

Getting time and a half to double pay on those days was nice! 8)

AMERICANS CHOOSE COSTCO AS THEIR FAVORITE GAS STATION

Nationwide chain Costco's cleanliness, food, and customer service earned its place as the country's most preferred gas station. Regional brands like Buc-ee's and Wawa offered the same, while their iconic local experiences have also afforded them many devoted followers.

Despite being so much more affordable than gas from other suppliers, Costco's Kirkland Signature™ fuel is TOP TIER™ and even exceeds EPA standards. This gasoline is formulated to clean your engine, help your car run like new, and maximize fuel economy.



Here's a photo I took:

Wyoming wants to phase out sales of new EVs by 2035
It's a symbolic gesture aimed at states like California.


While jurisdictions like California and New York move toward banning the sale of new gasoline-powered cars, one US state wants to go in the opposite direction. Wyoming’s legislature is considering a resolution that calls for a phaseout of new electric vehicle sales by 2035. Introduced on Friday, Senate Joint Resolution 4 has support from members of the state’s House of Representative s and Senate.

In the proposed resolution, a group of lawmakers led by Senator Jim Anderson says Wyoming’s “proud and valued” oil and gas industry has created “countless” jobs and contributed revenue to the state’s coffers. They add that a lack of charging infrastructure within Wyoming would make the widespread use of EVs “impracticable” and that the state would need to build “massive amounts of new power generation” to “sustain the misadventure of electric vehicles.”

SJ4 calls for residents and businesses to limit the sale and purchase of EVs voluntarily, with the goal of phasing them out entirely by 2035. If passed, the resolution would be entirely symbolic. In fact, it’s more about sending a message to EV advocates than banning the vehicles altogether. To that point, the final section of SJ4 calls for Wyoming’s Secretary of State to send President Biden and California Governor Gavin Newsom copies of the resolution.

“One might even say tongue-in-cheek, but obviously it’s a very serious issue that deserves some public discussion,” Senator Boner, one of the bill’s co-sponsors, told the Cowboy State Daily. “I’m interested in making sure that the solutions that some folks want to the so-called climate crisis are actually practical in real life. I just don’t appreciate when other states try to force technology that isn’t ready,”

While the resolution has the markings of a political stunt, it does allude to genuine economic anxiety. Wyoming produced 85.43 million barrels of oil in 2021, making it the country’s eighth-largest crude oil producer that year. The state’s Carbon County is also home to one of the largest wind farms in the US. Something that’s not talked about enough when it comes to climate change is how the world transitions to a zero-emissions economy in an equitable way. People in many rural US states are rightfully mistrustful of so-called green technologies because they haven’t benefited from more recent technological shifts as much as their urban counterparts. Take the advent of the internet, for instance. In 2018, Microsoft found that many rural communities don’t have access to broadband internet. That’s something that has contributed to diminishing economic opportunities in those places.

Taliban officials praise Afghanistan's first sports car. It has an engine from a 2000 Toyota Corolla.

A team of engineers and designers built what may be Afghanistan's first sports car. The car's power relies on a modded 2000 Toyota Corolla engine, according to a Tolo News report. The Taliban's spokesperson shared a video of the car, called Mada 9, doing donuts in the snow.

Afghanistan recently unveiled what may be its first sports car and Taliban officials are recognizing the achievement.

Miss Laos traveled 48 hours to compete in the Miss Universe pageant in New Orleans


Miss Laos Payengxa Lor traveled 48 hours to compete at Miss Universe.

Lor's voyage to the competition, which is in New Orleans this year, included five layovers.

Lor is the first Miss Laos to make the top 16 in Miss Universe history.

The Miss Universe competition brings together incredible women from all over the world — and some have to travel much farther distances than others to make it to the pageant stage.

During the beginning of the 71st annual Miss Universe competition on Saturday, it was revealed that Miss Laos Payengxa Lor had the longest journey.

...withdrawing large amount of cash is a pain in the buttocks.

Have not try this but my ATM daily withdrawal limit is $3000 so guessing one way of avoiding the background check and government report is to withdraw the daily max on several occasions. However, gotta try not to lose the withdrawal money along the way though... ???

Here's one of the impact as a result of those selfish FRAUDs' "negative" behaviors:

Consumers will have to pay higher prices for products to compensate for the loss of revenue from shoplifted products. Security measures may have to be increased at stores, creating a less inviting environment for customers and decreasing the ability of a shop to connect with customers.
