How to use Rating in a sentence as a noun

Credit rating is bogeyman. Ever since I was old enough to spend money I was told to worry about my credit rating, and to take out credit cards, and do all that other stuff.

A high rating here would mean the phenotype would have a bias against being combined with dissimilar creatures. This allows the propensity towards speciation to develop evolutionarily, too.

If I did not pay, they would flag my credit rating and possibly take further legal action. I contacted Expedia again to ask WTF is going on, and their response was that they are not allowed to communicate with the collections agency once the matter has been given to them.

If this had been an app for men rating and alerting them about certain women all **** would of broke loose.

Those sound like two big "ifs", and they may be, but consider: they are both user interface issues: * There is no collaborative interface for community-rating CA trustworthiness, or even a reasonable interface for pruning CA's out of your browser --- let alone "do I trust certificates delegated from this CA, or just the CA itself". We are still using an interface for this functionality designed in the mid-'90s.

They retroactively changed all older app reviews to be by "An anonymous user", but now all reviews and ratings are done under your Google+ account, so I just stopped reviewing and rating apps. If I were to rate and review apps as I would prefer to do, then anyone googling my name when they meet me would find my Google+ account, then it would be trivial for them to click around and find out essentially a list of all the apps I use on a regular basis, and how I use them.

I don't believe for a second this is about helping the user - more likely is that FB and Netflix want to prevent users running scripts that add features or do functions they find inconvenient, like exporting your address book or movie rating info. I get to run code just as much as you do - it's MY computer, MY browser, and MY bandwidth.

Personally, when rating the badness of work, I judge it against my own assessment of the potential of the work. The potential isn't directly measurable or quantifiable, but it consists of things like the budget, the vision of the creator, the skill and effort of the artists involved in the creation, etc.

Folks moved around a lot and so you had people in charge of systems they didn't build, didn't understand all the moving parts of, and were apt to get a poor rating if they broke. When dealing with people in that situation one could either educate them and bring them along, or steam roll over them.

They know what products they sell, in what volume, they probably know the approximate margins achievable on the products sold and they know the customer service rating of each merchant. With this information, machine learning and the number of merchants they have, they have more than enough to be able to make really smart loan decisions.

Also, if the Greeks' can't pay at a AAA rating they certainly can't pay at AA rating, nor A, not BB, so the end game for rational thinkers is default because as the rating drops the inability to pay increases. Since Greeks hold EU notes and EU denominated assets they can't even be screwed via an exchange rate mechanism.

It has a 7 out of 10 California high school rating, so it's not that bad. There were no recruiters from "elite" private schools.

Dear lord, that's a bad rating system. They should just replace the stars with words."

Not to mention, this system is still just a star rating system. This would be no different than having two histograms side by side.

They're gently poking fun that Tesla vehicles are extremely safe, especially compared to fires - and then sticking it to critics further by actually announcing improvements to further reduce the already very low numbers of fire and further increase the already highest rating ever for a safety check for a vehicle. Well done Tesla and Elon.

Quote Examples using Rating

The problem, which started becoming visible in 2001, is that in the aftermath of the "dot-com boom", the ratings agencies starting rating a lot of things AAA that were not, in fact, AAA. That is not "an excess of overcaution". In fact it was an exploit of the banking/finance system, that went like this: -- lots of places are required by law or regulation to only invest in AAA securities, because they/the public don't want to lose any money. They have a LOT of money to invest. -- but they don't check the rating themselves -- they depend on a rating agency -- ratings agencies are paid by the issuers -- they are exploitable -- bribe the rating agency to give my rating a AAA rating, and now I can sell a ton of it -- offer the investor a slightly greater than AAA return, and they love it -- everyone is happy: rating agency is bribed, investor is getting better returns than expected, and I can sell all the rating I can package up -- until it all falls apart. And the far right side of the chart is just a continuance of the same thing: our rating fell apart, what should we do? Well, the easiest thing is to bribe the politicians to take our private debts and turn them into public debts. And so it happened. That big tall lavender bar in 2009 is the dark purple lines from a few years prior... . None of this has anything to do with an excess of caution or with AAA debt being more systemically dangerous than other types of debt. The blogger here almost grasps what is wrong: > "Thats possibly the most horrifying bit of all: it simply defies credulity for anybody to be asked to believe that more than half the bonds issued in any given year are essentially free of any credit risk." but he skips past the correct answer, which is that the ratings agencies have been suborned.
