Top Restaurant Reddit IAmA's http://www.topiama.com/cat/restaurant The latest Restaurant IAmA's collected from Reddit Request(AMA REQUEST) EMS or Medical staff for the Jack Ass crew http://www.topiama.com/r/6326/ama-request-ems-or-medical-staff-for-the-jack-ass Hey. I’m Carol Robinson, a reporter with The Birmingham News and AL.com. I have worked here since graduating college in 1986 and have been covering crime in Birmingham, Ala. – one of the U.S.’s most violent cities – full time since 1996 with a good amount of it before that as well.

I’ve covered thousands of homicides, a handful of executions, and I have also covered major national stories such as the hunt for Eric Robert Rudolph, (who bombed an abortion clinic in Birmingham) and the disappearance of Alabama teenager Natalee Holloway in Aruba.

I’m pretty much on call 24/7 but when I’m not working I am shopping or hanging out with my dogs, Sam and Maggie. I have a 23-year-old daughter who I raised as a single mom (she was an Alabama cheerleader), and she is now a first-grade teacher. Did I mention she moved back home?

Actor / EntertainerIamA Singer and Voice actor Megumi Ogata. 歌手、声優の緒方恵美です。AMA! http://www.topiama.com/r/6121/iama-singer-and-voice-actor-megumi-ogata My short bio: I was a freelance writer for outlets like Vanity Fair, The Guardian, Skeptic, and Huffington Post when I was invited to assist a faction of Anonymous that was assisting with the Tunisian revolution. Shortly afterwards Anonymous hackers stole 70,000 e-mails from an "intelligence contracting" firm that had put us under surveillance, thus exposing the Team Themis conspiracy whereby Palantir, HBGary Federal, and other firms with "black propaganda" capabilities had proposed hacking, disinformation, and intimidation of activist groups like Code Pink as well as Wikileaks and even its supporters, including Glenn Greenwald. Although one CEO had to resign, a Congressional investigation was quickly derailed and no one suffered any consequences (despite having planned DOS attacks, the exact thing for which Anonymous participants had been pursued for via heavily armed FBI raids after they took down MasterCard and Paypal websites for a few seconds in protest of their refusal to process donations to Wikileaks).

Thereafter I repurposed my online "think-tank," Project PM, to continue researching these firms and others like them, compiling our research on a wiki called Echelon2.org (since moved). The FBI eventually raided my home and my mom's house, with the search warrant listing our website and group as subjects of interest. Thereafter they threatened to indict my mother if I failed to cooperate; instead, I threatened to "ruin" the life of the lead agent, using the same tactics that HBGary Federal CEO Aaron Barr had planned to use against activists with the DOJ's blessing. Separately, I vowed to defend myself against any further raids. The two statements were conflated by the DOJ and used to indict me for threatening a federal agent, which actually requires one to make a violent, non-conditional threat, whereas I'd made one non-violent threat and one conditional threat.

Later, I was charged with 11 counts of aggravated identity theft for having copied and pasted a link from one chat room to another that I believed contained more e-mails, but which in fact included credit cards. I faced 22 years for that link alone, in addition to other charges. The DOJ later had to drop those and other charges, and I plead guilty to one count of internet threats, one of interference with a search warrant, and one of accessory after the fact (I called Stratfor, a company that had been hacked, and offered to help redact any e-mails that could put someone in danger). I was also ordered to pay over $800,000 in restitution to Stratfor.

There are several documentaries covering much of this, including Hacker Wars, We Are Legion, and Alex Winter's 18-minute film Relatively Free, as well as some pretty good articles at WhoWhatWhy and The Nation describing the other plots we uncovered and documented.

While imprisoned, I continued writing, doing a column called The Barrett Brown Review of Arts & Letters & Prison that was later picked up by The Intercept, and for which I won the National Magazine Award for commentary/columns in 2016.

I was released November of last year, and am now preparing a new project, called the Pursuance System, by which to build up a cohesive yet agile network of opposition to criminalize institutions while also helping activists and non-profits to cooperate more efficiently. You can read more about it here.

My Proof: Picture from last week sent to mods here. Here's a live video from my Facebook. Can resubmit that picture as well if needed.

EDIT 5:34 CST I'm going to run down to the store, but will be back in fifteen or twenty minutes to answer more questions.

EDIT Am back, and will continue to answer questions sporadically through the evening.

EDIT 9:00 PM EST I'm going to play some Team Fortress 2 for a bit and relax and whatnot but I'll be back to answer more questions later tonight, and will get to more tomorrow as well.

EDIT 1:53 am EST Well, my Facebook account has suddenly been disabled without explanation, in case anyone's wondering why the link above no longer works.

Restaurant-LiveIamA former manager of Papa John's (2 years) and Dominos (4 months), AMA! http://www.topiama.com/r/6108/iama-former-manager-of-papa-johns-2-years-and In at least six cases since 2001, professed racist "Odinists" have been convicted of plotting – or pulling off – domestic terrorism attacks. Odinism is a perfect fit for a strain of white supremacists and neo-Nazis who think Christianity has been corrupted by outsiders and weakened by passivity. Today’s racist Odinists say it is the only pure religion for white people, one not “mongrelized” by the Jewish prophet Jesus. They see themselves as warriors, ready to reclaim America for the white race and fight against a white genocide, driven by Jews, that has left the greatest country on Earth in tatters.

Restaurant-LiveIamA Lead Waiter at a 4-AAA-Diamond, Michelin-Rated Restaurant. I make over $110k a year. AMA! http://www.topiama.com/r/5858/iama-lead-waiter-at-a-4aaadiamond-michelinrated My short bio: I've been in the restaurant industry for about a decade with five years in fine dining. Graduated from college in a STEM field, but starting salaries couldn't match what I was doing in the restaurant, so I decided to stay a while.

A few years went by and I kept climbing diagonally within the industry and ended up in a high end restaurant with a huge staff and high-end clientele.

I have worked most positions within the front of the house in a restaurant, ranging from food runner, bartender, to manager, hosting, and waiting tables.

It's a unique industry, with really unique people. You end up working with some very driven people and some very lazy people.

Nonetheless, I'm open to any questions about the industry or the fine-dining in general.

My Proof: Provided to the Mods.

RestaurantHey Reddit, I Am A Taco Bell employee who works graveyard shifts in a state where marijuana is legal. Ask Me Anything! http://www.topiama.com/r/5620/hey-reddit-i-am-a-taco-bell-employee-who-works Hello, I am Dr. Justin McWilliams, an interventional radiologist at UCLA (https://www.uclahealth.org/justin-pryce-mcwilliams)!

I specialize in using medical imaging (x-ray, CT, etc.) to treat your medical issues in a minimally invasive way, often helping patients avoid major surgery.

Working through a tiny incision, we can do some amazingly powerful things: open clogged vessels, eradicate cancer with ice probes, control life-threatening bleeding, shrink enlarged prostates, ablate varicose veins to make your legs look and feel great, and kill tumors with chemotherapy delivered directly to their blood supply. And that is just a small sample of what we do! More info here: http://www.sirweb.org/patients/

I divide my time between treating patients and performing medical research. Ask me anything about interventional radiology, cancer treatment, minimally invasive solutions to your medical problems, the world of academic medical research, exciting new technologies in medicine, or anything else!

Proof: http://imgur.com/a/YbPhY News segment I was featured in with more info: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JNyKc9UHJ9A&t=28s

Edit: Hey all, I have to go to angio club (this is like a little club where dorky IR doctors show each other cool cases and drink cheap wine). This was really fun, have never done it before. Planning to come back to answer more questions tomorrow morning at 11 am EST. Feel free to share on your social media so we can generate more fun questions. Thanks everyone! -Justin

Edit #2: Will have to go at 1 pm EST- I am giving a lecture on HHT and liver AVMs at 1030 here in California, and my chairman will be there, so I better be on time. Thanks!

Edit #3: Have to go, but I'll be back when I have time, since I am a little OCD and can't leave questions unanswered, it will haunt me. Special thanks to UCLA resident physician Kevin Seals (https://twitter.com/kevinsealsmd) for telling me about Reddit and helping put this together. Reaching out to Kevin on Twitter is probably the best way to get ahold of me if needed. Cheers everyone!

RestaurantI am a 3rd shift Waffle House waitress! AMA! http://www.topiama.com/r/5461/i-am-a-3rd-shift-waffle-house-waitress-ama Hey folks! I'm Ryan Morrison, better known as Video Game Attorney, and today I'm here with my new show co-host and superior attorney colleague "Ultra David" (or David Graham /u/ultraaaa). If you can name someone in video games, esports, or YouTube/Twitch, we've probably worked for, with, or against them in some capacity. We're here to answer anything you'd like to know, and to promote the hell out of our new show Rampart style.

Our Show (Going live at 12pm PT today!) https://www.twitch.tv/streaminglegals

And please please please donate to our 24-hour charity stream for Able Gamers - Happening Oct 8: http://ablegamers.donordrive.com/index.cfm?fuseaction=donorDrive.participant&participantID=1506

DISCLAIMER: Nothing in this post creates an attorney/client relationship. The only advice I can and will give in this post is GENERAL legal guidance. Your specific facts will almost always change the outcome, and you should always seek an attorney before moving forward. We are American attorneys licensed in New York and California. And even though none of this is about retaining clients, it's much safer for me to throw in: THIS IS ATTORNEY ADVERTISING. Prior results do not guarantee similar future outcomes.
