After running ColorMunki Photo 1.2.2 on sierra
the profile created gave weird magenta cast on screen Apple cinema 30 lcd
Deleted profiles
but am now at a loss $500.00
Are files existing from updates that need to be manually deleted ?

Ralph, if you've updated the ColorMunki software from a previous version you will need to delete the files as detailed on my link above.

However, the magenta cast sounds like something different from the symptoms I experienced.  A good place to start would be with X-Rite’s technical support.

There is a rule that allows apprentices.  For example, 1 apprentice for every 4 or 5 journeymen hired for a particular job.  I'm not sure of the exact ratio.  It takes 5 years as an apprentice to reach journeyman level and full pay.  But still, why go to college?   :)

An excellent point as there are good jobs in maintenance all over the place.  Look at how much good HVAC people make,  I have my furnace inspected in the fall and AC in the spring and the 10 minute call is costs $90 as I have a service contract.  A plumbing or electrician visit to take care of a problem costs over $100.  I try to do most of this myself to save on the call but there are times when I'm not up to the task.  We need good vocational training as these jobs are never going to be automated.   Similarly, good handymen can do quite well in our area where the houses are on the older side and things need to be repaired.

Just to let you know that Trump paid plumbers in NYC about $55 per hour plus additional union benefits to build his buildings here.  Other tradesmen make comparable wages.  That's over $100,000 a year.  Plumbers make double that when working overtime.  Electricians make 1 1/2 times base rate for overtime.  What do factory workers earn assuming they still have their jobs?
there are also lots of reports that Trump stiffed workers and vendors.  there is some ongoing litigation by parties here (fact:  three current case against the Trump Hotel in DC) but also cases where small vendors were forced to settle for ten cents on the dollar as they could not afford prolonged court hearings (the best example was the piano supplier to one of the Trump casinos in Atlantic City who was stiffed and then settled). 

Yes, electricians and other guilds that are involved in construction make good salaries but their jobs are gone once the construction ends.  As a sobering analysis, look at what happened to these workers in areas where the housing boom abruptly cratered when the bubble popped.  It was just as dire as a manufacturing worker losing his/her job when the factory closed.

you don't assume that every single dude dealing with pipes was a full blown plumber though - a lot were apprentices  ;)

 ...and your point is what?  That we should shoot Trump and all other real estate developers because they don't create as many jobs as industrial manufacturer's.  Well ask all the architects, engineers, electricians, steel workers, plumbers, and other tradesmen who build his buildings about your thinking of their jobs that feed their families..  Ask the thousands of workers who clean apartments and hotels, the concierges and others who support the running of his hotels and apartments, renovate them as tenants move in and out.    What about the workers who work in the stores in the commercial portion of their buildings?  They also have on-going jobs.   Also what about the industrial manufacturers who have gone totally out of business losing all their jobs to China?  Meanwhile, real estate developers are still building here in America providing American jobs.  The hate of Trump so blinds people to thinking irrationally.  Work is work.

Again, the narrative spun by the Trump crowd is that he's a self-made man, a brilliant businessman, etc etc. Compelling arguments have been made that he is none of those things. When confronted with these things the Trump crowd shifts the goal posts...as you've done above. Sure, Trump employed some people. Big deal.

As I said in my early post, I am only posting facts and not engaging in any diatribes as I want to keep my temper.  I most certainly take umbrage against your statement alluding that I "hate" Trump.  I don't think I have ever said that.  I was only pointing out "factually" that real estate development is different from manufacturing which constantly has to invent new and better products in order to stay in business.  Once a hotel is built, the major sunk costs are over and the debt, if any, needs to be repaid.  Ongoing maintenance costs that employ people are not as significant a cost.  These are all facts.  Contrast the Real Estate business with a company I have an equity position and just announced it's earnings this morning, Whirlpool.  this company operates internationally, just as Trump enterprises does.  It employs 95,000 people and has revenues of $21B.  It is also in a highly competitive industry and if they don't come up with new products that consumers want they will slowly whither.  My factual point is that real estate development or the owning of real estate (and I was an owner of an apartment building at one point in time) is far different from manufacturing.

I will make one opinionated statement here that I will not subsequently respond to (breaking my rule of only discussing facts).  I believe is is easier to be successful in real estate than in manufacturing.

Ah, those racist police forces... not letting honest criminals go about their business unimpeded.
there is a long history of this in Los Angeles and a lot of good journalism about how the emerging middle class blacks who worked in the aircraft industry in the area during WWII were prevented from buying property outside of the south central area of LA which turned into a de facto ghetto because of this.  almost all real estate transactions contained racial covenants which were not illegal at the time.  (as in aside my own area of Bethesda all houses built before about 1952 contained a racial covenant.  There was always a toilet on the lowest level of the house, usually next to the laundry sink that was set aside for the "colored" help as they were not expected to use facilities on the main floors of the house)  The enforced ghettoization and the extreme police methods that evolved in the post war era led to the riots.  I'm speaking only of Los Angeles and not the other areas that erupted in the mid 1960s.  Mike Davis's excellent history of Los Angeles, "City of Quartz", documents the rise of the quasi-police state in the city.
