Svinicki: NRC's Feminized Black "Darth Vader"

Heard an NRC independent source about the mass firing.

This begins queuing up the Walking Dead Video at the question point.   

The Walking Dead takes place after the onset of a worldwide zombie apocalypse. The zombies, colloquially referred to as "walkers", shamble towards living humans and other creatures to eat them (they are attracted to noise, e.g., gunshots, and to different scents, e.g., humans). Humans they bite or scratch become infected and slowly turn into walkers as well. It is revealed early in the series that all living humans carry this pathogen, so that if they die from any other cause, they will also turn into walkers. The only way to permanently kill a walker is to damage its brain or otherwise fully destroy the body, such as by cremating it.The series centers on sheriff's deputy Rick Grimes, who wakes up from a coma to discover this apocalypse. He becomes the leader of a group of survivors from the Atlanta, Georgia region as they attempt to sustain themselves and protect themselves not only against attacks by walkers but by other groups of survivors willing to assure their longevity by any means necessary
My linkedIn comments on the speech

Mike Mulligan What do you think in the written comment part of her speech about what she thinks about the TV program the "Walking Dead"? Was the comment respectful or disrespectful? She answered it perfectly. Was it a metaphor for our times and the condition of the industry? Are the zombie-walkers us (outsiders)? Was it a kind of pretest?

You get the paradox here? The mother-of-all industry crisis and most of what she was talking about is a form of deregulation and budget cuts. Show less 
Mike Mulligan It’s highfalutin code language. It designed to mean one thing to outsiders and a completely different thing to special insiders. It’s designed to booster a agenda of the insiders. 
Like, she said this season’s “Walking Dead” begins with a lot of violence and killings. But it gets back after a few shows to the regular theme of epochal survival of the fittest, she says. Was this intimidation to her employees? Is the agency heading for mass firings and getting rid of special people? After all, this is the beginning of her chairperson administration of the NRC just like the opening programs of this season’s Walking Dead? ?

I never seen such a disgraceful comment posed to an US agency head and disgraceful comment back.

Are all NRC employees required to watch “The Walking Dead.” She was prepared to answer that strange question. 

And she took out Jaczko. Was she referencing this event? 
Mike Mulligan Was the "Walking Dead" mocking the state of the industry?
I call it "getting off" on gratuitous human violence, death and human suffering...
'The Walking Dead' sets stage for war in tense season finale

(CNN)The following contains spoilers about "The Walking Dead's" Season 7 finale.
"The Walking Dead" certainly seemed aptly named through the second half of this season, which didn't really go anywhere in much of a hurry. That ambling build-up set the stage for an extended tension-filled finale Sunday that contained a little bit of everything, and at least avoided the irritating cliffhanger stunts that have characterized seasons past.
There was, finally, something cathartic about seeing Rick (Andrew Lincoln) and the coalition he had painstakingly, gradually assembled fight back against the brutal Negan (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) and the Saviors. Not that the battle really settled anything, since Negan managed to escape, rallying his massive army at the end by announcing, "We are going to war!"
Since Negan first made his presence felt on the show -- in a stomach-turning sequence that milked his cheerful sadism for all it was worth -- AMC's signature hit has both been significantly altered and lost a substantial portion of its audience. While previous years were built around carefully constructed arcs as the central group sought elusive refuge in one location or another, Negan's vise-like hold on the disjointed communities under his thumb cast a very long shadow, even during those stretches where the charismatic Morgan wasn't on screen.
The finale, in a way, felt like an effort not just to spin the show into a state of open warfare -- with all the tactical aspects that entails -- but also to address some of the concerns voiced about its dramatic drift. Perhaps that's why there were so many different flourishes upon which to chew, from Sasha (Sonequa Martin-Green) engaging in her noble sacrifice to an unexpected betrayal to an old-fashioned last-minute rescue, sending Negan and his band into uncharacteristic retreat.

Having been pretty overtly emasculated by Negan in their early encounters, Rick was also given an opportunity to exhibit some of his trademark grit, telling his nemesis yet again that he would eventually kill him, despite being captured and beaten.
The writers even set aside what amounted to a calming moment near the close to acknowledge the various losses and provide the characters a momentary respite. Mercifully, they also spared die-hard fans from sweating out, say, who was on the wrong end of Negan's bat until October.
That chance to inhale felt welcome, especially if the coming season is indeed going to be one long martial exercise, in a show that has long since moved beyond fear of zombies to the horrors people will inflict upon each other when not bound by laws. (Notably, except for the Sasha interlude, "walkers" were an afterthought in this latest episode.)
The challenge facing "The Walking Dead" going forward is how to balance the more epic qualities the current storyline augurs without losing sight of the core characters. In that respect, Sunday's finale can be viewed as a tentative step in the right direction -- a victory, however modest, for a series whose biggest and best days appear well behind it.
