EDIT: People, I not talking about the election. Russia did nothing but stoke a fire that was already burning. You can criticize Russia, sure, but you have to realize that this existed in our country long before that, and to externalize that onto a foreign party is denial. The top 20 percent and bottom 20 percent of results are eliminated. Then the remaining scores are averaged into the par time [source: USA Triathlon]. This allows race organizers to gauge the course’s speed and throw out any anomalies, like a very fast or very slow time.. Like other same sex animal duos before them, the lionsRead More →

While this won’t necessarily reflect on the finished film itself which BETTER BE GOOD or there will be hell to pay in the trailer I was craving some of the raw grittiness from the printed page, especially to hook the people who don’t already know and love the story.Have you seen the awesome Japanese movie Battle Royale? It has similar plot points as The Hunger Games: dystopian future, teenagers dropped onto an island for battle to the death and the whole thing televised for the entertainment of the nation. Now THIS is a badass trailer (Warning: graphic violence), even with the subtitles.Battle Royale came outRead More →

The most important thing to learn right now is to get to know your body better, and to be gentle. Learn to read the signs, learn what your body can handle, go easy, slow down, and relax. You don need a plan, you don need technology, but you do need to be brutally honest with yourself.. Basic pointy nude pumps with skinny heels This is the ultimate pair of heels for a petite woman. High heel shoes lengthen the legs through the added height. Nude color pumps will lengthen your legs even more because they are the same color as your skin; they act asRead More →

The $1500 is the opportunity cost of upgrading the plant instead of investing the money. In a profit maximizing company, this type of analysis steers spending. In our example, if the investment in the plant upgrades reduces overall costs by more than the opportunity cost of the investment, the plant gets updated as it will yield a greater overall profit for the business.. The veteran left tackle took part in individual drills for the first time since the team was preparing to face the New Orleans Saints in Week 11. Williams, who is playing through a knee injury that will require surgery, did not playRead More →

Favourites in JohannesburgOliver Tambo Airport is constantly being upgraded and,rather resembles a big mall than an airport. Restaurants and fast food outlets are ample. Ocean Basket, one of South Africa’s favourite fish restaurants, is forever packed. Also, you’ll need a second, identical hard drive motor from which you’ll remove the rotor (which has a ring of magnets inside it). To pull the motor apart, I gripped the rotor (top) of the motor in a vise and then pried on the stator (bottom) with two screwdrivers 180 degrees apart. It’s not so easy to grip a motor in a vice tight enough without deforming it. AmyRead More →

Several months later, Mr Murdoch’s 21st Century Fox group acquired a 5 per cent stake in Vice Media in a deal that valued it at $1.4bn. Now, a year on, Time Warner is poised to invest. It is discussing giving Vice control of its HLN cable news channel, allowing it to programme its own content.. The main story is not about Jews, but instead the hero journey of a Good German that acts heroically to save Jewish lives. A true story of course, but is this the best representation of German behavior during the Holocaust? Schindler was an exception. The vast majority of Germans, mostRead More →

I like the Hyperloop idea, but I annoyed that no one pays any attention to SkyTran and it gets no publicity at all. Hyperloop, from an engineering perspective, is a much more difficult project. SkyTran is pretty simple really, the only thing worse about it is that it requires fully automated controls and it will scale much larger (because it needs to have so many stops covering urban and suburban areas to be useful, whereas Hyperloop just needs one in each city along the route)..

Ok so look, my lil brother was a quadriplegic on a vent with a motorized wheelchair that weighed 800 lbs. We did not have a lot of money but a large conversion van. We could not afford the lift on the back, so we bought the aluminum ramps they use for loading riding lawnmowers and would have to push him up the 3 4 foot drop and guide him down backwards when we got to the destination.

Where to? Into private collections, no doubt. Into the hands of those who declared this war. I’m fairly certain that some people already had their shopping lists before the invasion and that they were allowed to do this.. To cut grease, you will need more than just water and soap.
