Law firm investigates Bethesda over Fallout 76 refund policyConsumers left with an “unplayable experience”, says Migliaccio & RathodHaydn TaylorSenior Staff WriterTuesday 27th November 2018Share this article Recommend Tweet ShareCompanies in this articleBethesda Game StudiosBethesda Game Studios is under investigation by law firm Migliaccio & Rathod for its refund policy towards Fallout 76 consumers. According to the Washington DC-based firm, Bethesda is refusing to issue refunds to people who bought Fallout 76 and found it unplayable due to bugs and technical issues. Just four days ago, multiple users on Reddit claim they were able to get refunds out of Bethesda. However, since then the developer has reportedly stopped issuing refunds. While the Bethesda has been criticised in the past for releasing buggy games, Fallout 76 apparently goes beyond the pale, and was hammered by critics for being consistently broken. Migliaccio & Rathod paralegal Bruno Ortega-Toledo said: “While minor bugs and glitches are expected with the release of most new games, Fallout 76 launched with a 56gb patch that has proven to be but a starting point for the game’s problems.Related JobsSenior Game Designer – UE4 – AAA United Kingdom Amiqus GamesProgrammer – REMOTE – work with industry veterans!

When Equestrian Canada revealed their 2017 financial summary last week, at least one committee was surprised to see the numbers that they have not been able to review in over a year. EC reports that Equine Medications operated at a loss of $33,004 for the 2017 fiscal year which ended March 31, but the committee is unable to explain the shortfall.“I can’t comment on the deficit,” said Yves Rossier, chair of the Equine Medication committee. “The EMCC (Equine Medication Control Committee) has not been provided with a detailed financial statement and the breakdown of expenses and revenues to explain the 33k deficit.”Rossier noted that the group meets face-to-face each November to review the entire program, but they were unable to review the financial information at their November 2016 meeting because EC did not provide any details. The new Chief Financial Officer was just getting settled (she subsequently resigned a month later) and EC advised the group that the office was in the midst of changing accounting software so the information was not available. Without those details, the committee was unable to review the costs and income that go into the Equine Medication budget and so could not verify that the items were correctly allocated. Despite repeated requests since, EC still has not provided the group with the necessary information.“I was very surprised that they released numbers showing we overspent by $33,000 when they haven’t been able to provide us with any information,” commented fellow committee member, Geoff Vernon, DVM, who has been on the committee since 2014. “We asked again after the financial summary was released but were once again told that they weren’t available. Explain how that’s possible if they can release a summary?”Without the detailed financial information to prove otherwise, many in the industry are concerned that EC is funneling operational expenses through various committees to pay for their overall budget. “The equine meds budget is supposed to be self-sustaining,” added Vernon. “It is not our mandate to cover the overhead of the EC office but I suspect that might be the case.”Aside from their inability to get their financial questions answered, the committee has had difficulty maintaining communications with EC. “The link with EC is inconsistent,” commented Vernon. “There has been tremendous turnover and as soon as we trained a new staffer they would leave.”The high staff turn-over under Eva Havaris’s time as CEO has been challenging. EC’s Competition Services Coordinator, Emily Church, left abruptly this spring and her absence almost derailed the entire 2017 program. “Without an EC point person in charge of assigning technicians for the shows and sending out the testing kits, there was nobody to execute the program,” said Vernon.The committee’s experience highlights the difficulties that many others in the industry have echoed over the last year. The parade of CFOs during Havaris’s employment have made getting any financial information at the committee level impossible. This is exacerbated by Havaris’s insistence that EC’s new operational structure means that financial details are the sole domain of the head office and of no concern to the committees.EC’s AGM is scheduled for Monday September 25 at 7pm ET. While only board members and the 27 voting members are permitted to participate, interested parties can watch the proceedings via Facebook Live. For those not on social media, EC will post the video of the AGM on their website after the event along with the minutes.The board agreed to answer voting members’ questions before the AGM and a maximum of two questions during the AGM from each of the three categories. Perhaps the voters – who represent the entire industry – will have more success in demanding financial transparency and accountability. While the CEO reports to the board, the board answers to the voters who should be asking why their representatives continue to support a CEO who is responsible for the ongoing confusion and distrust that is thwarting the industry.

The cat’s owners eventually arrived.

Answer: You are correct in knowing that each state law may differ no matter how close the states are to each other. In the great state of Texas, there is NO law that states if you turn on windshield wipers your headlights must be on. I understand a motorist will turn on his or her wipers during inclement weather conditions. In Texas, there are three events that mandate the use of headlights: first, 30 minutes after sunset; second, 30 minutes before sunrise; and third, if visibility is less than a 1,000 feet, which equates to about three city blocks. Mary, with that said, it’s not a bad idea to turn on the headlights when it’s raining. Answer: I guess we need to make a public announcement for all motorists to “beware of garbage cans sitting on the side of the roadway; they are destroying side view mirrors” (smile). I have good news for you. If your driver’s side view mirror is in place, you are NOT in violation of the state of Texas Transportation Code. In the state of Texas all motorists are required to have at least one operable side view or one operable rear view mirror, where the driver can see behind them. Vehicles are manufactured with one rear view mirror and two side view mirrors. To be in compliance with the state of Texas, at least one of those mirrors have to be attached and operable.

Rickey Antoine, 645 4th Street, Port Arthur, Texas, 77640. If you happen to see me in public you can Ask A Cop! Mary Ann from Opelousas asks: I visit Port Arthur often, and oftentimes my family and I find ourselves comparing law differences in Texas and Louisiana. In Louisiana, the police are very strict concerning the windshield wiper/headlight law. In Louisiana, when you turn on your windshield wipers, you must turn on your car headlights. Is that the same law here in Texas? Kennedy from Vidor asks: I recently had a small fender bender, where my side view mirror hit a garbage can and fell off. Obviously, I didn’t do any damage to the garbage can, but my passenger mirror fell out and I need a replacement. I have to drive to Port Arthur for work and this is my only means of transportation. If I get stopped by the police, will I get a ticket for my missing side view mirror? Paul from Port Arthur asks: I have a small sports car that’s pretty fast. Let me clear the air, I’m not a speeder, I just like my car. My question is, let’s say the speed limit is 50 mph and I’m at a traffic light that’s red. When the light turns green, is it illegal to quickly get up to 50 mph? Answer: I was impressed to hear you’re not a speeder, even though you have a sports car. If you’re stopped at a traffic signal that’s red and it turns green, as long as you “DO NOT” do what’s commonly known as burn rubber from a stopped position, there’s no law governing how fast you can get up to 50 mph, as long as it can be done SAFELY! So, Paul, enjoy your sports car, drive safely and always remember speeding kills.
Ronan Howlett bested 42 other students from across Vermont to win the Vermont State Individual Spelling Bee on Wednesday, March 13, 2013. Howlett, an eighth grader from Middlebury Union Middle School, and last year’ s winner, will now compete against top spellers from every other state in the nation in the Scripps National Spelling Bee in Washington, DC, in June. The winning word was ‘ desultory,’ an adjective which means ‘ marked by absence of a plan; disconnected; jumping from one thing to another; digressing from the main subject; random.’ Emily Ballou, of South Royalton School, came in second. Nicholas Knudsen, of Frederick H Tuttle Middle School came in third. In addition to advancing to the national spelling bee, Ronan Howlett received a trophy, an iPad and an all-expense-paid trip to Washington, D.C., sponsored by FairPoint Communications, Vermont Lake Monsters, Burlington Free Press, Vermont Humanities Council, Vermont Principals Association and Vermont Agency of Education. For more information on the national bee, visit www.spellingbee.com(link is external). Elementary and middle school students (through grade 8) under the age of 16 were eligible to participate in this competition.

Adam Silverman of the Burlington Free Press served as pronouncer for the event. Peter Gilbert, Executive Director, Vermont Humanities Council; Mike Smith, State President, FairPoint Communications; and John Fischer, Deputy Commissioner, Vermont Agency of Education served as judges this year.

ShareShareSharePrintMailGooglePinterestDiggRedditStumbleuponDeliciousBufferTumblr A hot marketing topic is the wide variety of social media platforms and how marketing professionals use them. We recently visited with Brenna Kowall, Digital Marketing Specialist with Firefighters Community Credit Union ($200 million assets, 27,500 members) in Cleveland, Ohio to find out more about her efforts using Pinterest.1) How long has your credit union been involved in Pinterest and what prompted you to join?Our credit union joined Pinterest about two years ago. We recently went through a rebranding campaign and saw Pinterest as a good way to reach out to both existing and potential members and the communities we serve. We find Pinterest, among other things, is a good outlet for improving our brand identity and also a great member engagement tool. Pinterest is not just another social media channel we have our name on. It’s an amazing marketing tool that helps us connect with our members and potential members and the community.2) How has Pinterest helped your credit union better connect with members and potential members?We’ve found people that use Pinterest (our Pinners) tend to take over the job of sharing information for the credit union. When we share something of interest, our Pinners take the initiative to pin, re-pin and share with their networks. You don’t usually see that kind of interaction in traditional marketing and we want to take full advantage of it.3) What challenges have you faced using Pinterest?The elephant in the room when it comes to Pinterest is the heavily female-skewed demographic. Honestly, if you’re looking to reach a mostly male audience, Pinterest is not the best outlet for your social media efforts. The way we look at it, though, women control the budgeting and purse-strings in many households these days, so using Pinterest to reach them makes sense. continue reading »
