    @jwrotherham Doesn't matter. The problem either exists (or not depending on your outlook) or it is only solved when the EU says it's solved.

  • hmb54 Hamish Blair (@hmb54) reported

    Doh! The request for confirmation of my email address landed in my "junk" folder in hotmail, which didn't show up on my phone. Now that I can get it on an old-fashioned PC the petition website is "down for maintenance". More lost sign-ups!

  • SL_Taylor2 Samwise (@SL_Taylor2) reported from Medford, Oregon

    @PavlovicNBCS I had forgotten how much that 9th inning melt down hurt 😭 Great article. You’ve changed my outlook on this season (for a week or so at least)!

  • bus_kerdou z (@bus_kerdou) reported

    After much deliberation and patience, I’ve come to the conclusion that none of my IRL female friends have the same outlook on particular issues as me. My views have been the same since 2014 and contrary to what they told me back then about how I will change and 1/3

    Microsoft: **** YO CREDENTIALS Internal site that loads O365 Outlook: Great gg, love that login :::clicks through to site that he was trying to login to for setting up 2 factor for corp account::: : Oh good, we are glad you are here, plz scan QR code.

  • dropkickkimmy1 Screamingforchange (@dropkickkimmy1) reported

    @JesusWasARebel2 i dont think he is against the idea of it. i think he doesnt know how it would be done fairly, correctly etc. so he focuses on how to fix the system. it may not be the best outlook but its a pretty understandable one.

  • briU_U bri ミ☆ (@briU_U) reported

    i get the whole "all men are terrible" sentiment actually enforcing a man-hating outlook for young girls excusing shitty behavior and it's pretty harmful but sometimes i just wanna be a man-hating **** and i think i deserve that

  • clarkshahnelson Clark Shah-Nelson (@clarkshahnelson) reported from Baltimore, Maryland

    @tjoosten For me, it generally happens when laptop has been asleep for a while and upon wake up, I can start a new message and type away and Outlook doesn’t realize it is logged out. Rather than pop up a login to spare the work, it resets entirely and I lose it...boooo!

  • PaperBatVG ぴいばっと (@PaperBatVG) reported

    @_nebneb Very interesting outlook on it dude! I can see where your issue would stem from there but I personally am not sure that a platform like this, though similar, will suffer the safe drawbacks given that games are a different medium and monetary value than music is

  • Seonwoo__Lee Seonwoo Lee (@Seonwoo__Lee) reported

    @morjoysol2615 Haha to me, any job outside of being a student and not working for the government is "corporate America" 😂 I'm sure I'll get that outlook fixed in a jiffy once I graduate

  • erikdarlingdata Erik Darling Data (@erikdarlingdata) reported

    Outlook web is so slow a new message has time to become a draft before you can even start typing.

  • OhemaAkuaK 🇬🇭's Coconut Queen (@OhemaAkuaK) reported from Accra, Greater Accra Region

    Whenever I speak to someone who is always negative or is ready to say something won’t work I just shut them down and leave it cuz that is a reflection of their outlook on life and has nothing to do with me.

  • billkimler Bill Kimler (@billkimler) reported

    @BDevDave I get these too. So far they've been 100% false alarms. My biggest problem is scheduling a meeting in Outlook and forgetting to hit the "WebEx" button.

  • ReCreeated Creeband Loco, First of her name. (@ReCreeated) reported

    My 2 were not speaking my truth when I’m upset/mad. I shut down. & fixing my body image and having a better outlook. I will say being more physical and eating better helps me feel better naturally. I have goals but I won’t talk negative on my body anymore

  • CherryBarbieXXX Cherry Barbie (@CherryBarbieXXX) reported

    @CarranzaErin Oh yes don’t think because I don’t agree with it I won’t retaliate and because I got paid to do so I’m not putting u down I’m giving u helpful advice on ur outlook sometimes people don’t realize that there perspective is not the only one

  • SimonRWaters Simon Waters (@SimonRWaters) reported

    @allthingsbeach @CobblerBob2 @itvpeston @Nigel_Farage I expect it'll trigger email volume limits at email companies long before 18 million, indeed some folk claiming long delays on emails already. We use to have 100,000 customers & Microsoft (hotmail, live) would quickly limit us to one email a second per mail server or some such.

  • GGByrne Grant Byrne StN (@GGByrne) reported

    @MannersOfMarple @paedsnursebeth Equally though being positive or negative doesn’t generally change anything - just your outlook. If we were more open about things and tackled the issues we could improve matters vs smiling through them

    My Outlook hasn't opened in three days, and I'm covering 4 centers, but I was able to help out with a major macro issue for a big report I'm working on so this week isn't all terrible.

  • YKOBAZ 🌸💮Antonija 💮🌸 (@YKOBAZ) reported

    WTI Negative economic outlook, chinese auto sales down, German manufacturers already lowering growth outlook and Europe drifting into recession. Looking at surrounding countries of China (Japan, Korea etc.) their exports are highly indicative for chinese

  • JamesSmithRF JamesSmithRF (@JamesSmithRF) reported

    @bankofengland Outlook for MPC is a tricky one. If there's a Withdrawal Agreement, demand may be stronger. BUT: £ and market curve will rise. Those will push down on inflation outlook. Could be quite a different outlook by the time we get to the May Inflation Report (2 May)

    The problem of poverty,unemployment and low access to finance were not this severe prior to 2015. Nigeria faces a liquidity problem and the government needs to address it. @Ayoteriba speaks on Macro and Policy Outlook for the next four years. #bdoutlook2019

  • RSiewert Rob Siewert (@RSiewert) reported

    Few in the business media are discussing the further flattening in the yield curve. 6 mo t-bill / 10yr Treasury now down to 4 basis points. Interesting... Not exactly a positive endorsement on the economic outlook...

    @MiaMBloom @SHO_Homeland @cpicciolini @_Shan_Martinez_ That is a brilliant idea. It would be interesting to do it in a way that subtly suggested an "ISIS" congruent outlook by the terrorists in such a plot, showing its philosophy not religion, that is the problem.

  • RodneyHobson Rodney Hobson (@RodneyHobson) reported

    Next runs into profittaking after strong recent run but results not too bad, online sales make up for High St decline, pretax profits down a tad, outlook unchanged for current year. I'm not tempted, but if you're already in there's no cause to get out at this stage.

    there are times when the country needs to have a mature outlook. I may not agree with the working of the govt, but at times one can find a diff route to deal with the issue. Rather than giving the enemies of the state fuel to add to fire. @BBhuttoZardari be mature.

    @ANoffsinger I settled for Apple Mail after trying just about every alternative in the book (except Superhuman because we use Outlook at work). It’s fine. I find that most problems with email are due to, you know, email.
