An acrostic is a series of lines or verses in which the first, last, or other particular letters when taken in order spell out a word or phrase. Poets are fond of them, and so were Scottish dance music group The Shamen. Apparently annoyed with Derek Birkett, boss of their label One Little Indian, trying to push them into a more commercial direction ahead of the release of 1996’s Hempton Manor, they spelled out “F BIRKET” with the first letter of each track on the album (leaving off the last ‘t’)..

“The Sox are my (Bob) shepherd; I shall not want (more after ending this 1918 chant). He maketh me to lie down in the shadow of the green (monster) pastures: he leadeth me beside the still (muddy) waters. He restoreth my soul, (with confidence to hit and catch the ball): he leadeth me in the paths (of the baselines in spite of the third base coach’s poor decisions) for Smoky Joe’s name’s sake.

Josef. I don even know where to begin. You put the in romantic. We’ve created petitions below for each of the declared candidates; sign one if you’re a supporter of a particular candidate. We’ll announce the total level of support for each candidate at the beginning of the debate, and again at the end. (You can click through to each to see the current level of support.).

Except, Kaine isn’t really. He has a zero percent rating from the American Conservative Union. But his bipartisan style often lends itself to a perception that he’s a moderate. Domestic violence and police brutality as two of our most stubborn examples of a sometimes fatally broken criminal justice system. Extreme wealth and extraordinary celebrity as weapons of distortion and defense. Other elements, perhaps half forgotten, tumble out when the documentary jogs your memory: Paula Barbieri, Bruno Magli, that Saturday Night Live sketch where all the defense attorneys are dressed as increasingly outlandish “African” caricatures.

I was hired by NPR to cover the intersection of demographics and politics. My job required crisscrossing the country to talk to all kinds of voters. I attended rallies and town halls for nearly every candidate on both sides of the aisle, and I met people in their homes, churches and diners..

RUDIN: There is, and they’ve been talking about it for sometime now. Of course, this weekend, the filing period opened up for mayor of Chicago. Richard M. OFA 2.0’s activities especially its efforts to mobilize support for “Obamacare” had gone beyond campaigning. But as former party chairman, Sen. Tim Kaine (Va.) told us, OFA was primarily envisaged as “the grassroots arm of the DNC,” and it played an integral part in the national party’s expanded field operations in the states.

Hundreds of protesters gathered at the arrivals gate of Washington Dulles International Airport to push back against President Trump’s executive order that targeted citizens from seven predominantly Muslim countries. A federal judge in New York blocked deportations nationwide late Saturday of those detained on entry to the United States. (McKenna Ewen/The Washington Post).

And for “Big Nate’s” many young fans, the very interactive app will be very real indeed.”It asks the user to be very involved,” Peirce tells Comic Riffs. “You’ve got to contribute something here.” True to its title, “Comix by U!” invites the user to write dialogue, assemble characters, choose panels and formats. “The users,” the cartoonist says, “are really the driving force behind it.”.

Gates said that he has concerns about people turning to violence out of desperation, at least until ample food and water become available. ET: Roughly 200,000 people may have been killed in the magnitude 7.0 quake, the European Union said, quoting Haitian officials who also said about 70,000 bodies have been recovered so far. With so many bodies rotting in the streets, Haitians are finding ways to overcome the stench and survive for another day.

“So in that sense, what I think the scientific community would prefer is that fidget spinners didn’t distract from, say, interventions for ADHD or anxiety that actually have a scientific record for being effective.”That said,Anderson added, he is not going to invalidate anyone’s report that spinners help.Regarding consumer safety, some retailers market fidget spinners for certain ages.Learning Express Toys, whichsells them, saidfidget spinners are recommended for consumers ages 12 and older. The company hasa warning on its website that reads “CHOKING HAZARD Small parts. Not for children under 3 years.”World Against Toys Causing Harmwarned parents not to have “a false sense of security that a toy is safe” just because it is trendy, and to avoid choosing toys for young children that may be a choking hazard..

The shit acted as a fertilizer, and the plants seem to love it. Probably depends on the plants, and the area we live in. I have a hard time seeing how putting dog shit into a plastic bag and putting it in the landfill would be more environmentally friendly than knocking it into the bushes and letting it biodegrade with all of the other animal shit that naturally occurs out there..

Say what you want about Joe, but that dude fucking knew how to get what he wanted out people. What creativity worth if it doesn get you what you want? In the end they both suffered tragic fates, but good ol Joe had throngs of people worshipping his plagiarism and he got to bone whoever he wanted because of reasons he made up and convinced people to follow. Call him evil, a plagiarist, psychopath or whatever you see fit, but none of us here have accomplished what he did.

In the coming weeks, the ebb and flow of the high wire negotiations are sure to capture headlines. We will see furious diplomacy and foreign ministers journeying back and forth to European capitals. But it already seems clear that Khamenei and the hard liners are poised to choose nuclear power over economic prosperity a decision that would probably prove catastrophic for their country.

Because once you have a matrix of size 100 million by 100 million or higher, doing Gaussian elimination or finding eigenvalues, eigenvectors, eigenspaces, or something else is pointless and computationally inefficient. You run out of processing power before you complete your task! Thus, mathematics has developed ways of generalizing ideas for extremely large matrices through proofs. Sometimes, special structures in matrices can be exploited, thus, drastically reducing the computations required.

None of these studies examined the long term effects of neuroleptics in dementia or examined the extent to which the effects on cognition were independent of other factors that might affect cognitive function. They were assessed every four months. Six subjects dropped out after two to five interviews and have been excluded from the analyses.

“I was raised on the water in Balboa,” he explained, “and I wanted the same kind of life for my girls, but I knew I couldn’t afford the ocean. Then I found this place. It was the answer to my dreams a place on a lake with a dock and boats in the back yard.” Borg is a practicing attorney now, but his dreams of living on the water have dried up..

Trump may well understand this reality and know better than to believe in signs of loyalty and affection displayed under conditions of mortal fear. Yet he should also understand how demoralizing it is for dissidents, how discouraging it is for the silent majority of double thinkers and how harmful it is to the strategic interests of the United States for him to commend a supposed love affair between Kim and his people. Such statements undermine America’s moral standing and dampen North Korean dissent, which is in fact the most powerful unconventional weapon in the fight against dictatorship..

Dropshipping. Ahaa, did I catch your attention earlier on when I said that people make thousands of dollars/pounds on by ebay by not even stocking a single product? Will this is how they do it. Dropshippers are like a wholesaler but what is different with these is you don’t have to buy in bulk or even stock their goods they have to offer.

But, we often done it well. Here are six examples, in no particular order. Many more could be listed. In the past we had sellers scam the community. Guilty until proven innocent is how we run things simply because when you catering to 130,000+ people you want things to be smooth and no scams to occur. Several users say they the same batch and several users say they aren would like to say I never claimed anything.

A number of studies published in the past several months clearly illustrate the consensus.The first study, published by the libertarian Cato Institute in February, examines criminal conviction data for 2015 provided by the Texas Department of Public Safety. It found thatnative born residents were much more likely to be convicted of a crime than immigrants in the country legally or illegally.Another study, published in March in the journal Criminology, looked at population level crime rates: Do places with higher percentages of undocumented immigrants have higher rates of crime? The answer, as the chart above shows, is a resounding no.States with larger shares of undocumented immigrants tended to have lower crime rates than states with smaller shares in the years 1990 through 2014. Light and Ty Miller found.That’s just a simple correlation, of course, and it’s well documented that many factors beyond immigration can affect the crime rate.

Galileo’s scientific discoveries memorialized him as the father of modern astronomy. Adam Smith reaped the posthumous profits of notoriety as the father of capitalism, and Edgar Allen Poe’s puzzling plotlines pinpointed him as the father of literary mystery. Similarly, as a pioneer and figurehead of his respective field, Dr.

Leonard freely admitted to the enormous toiling and struggle that went into many of his greatest works. It took him 5 years to write “Hallelujah” (arguably the world’s most covered song) and trim its 80 verses to 4. It took him 10 years to write “Anthem”, a song whose insights on spirituality have been quoted by virtually every faith on the planet..

It has MUCH more space than the BA Fly Creek or the Nemo Hornet because its walls are more vertical. The Nemo Blaze is another option with similar dimensions and its lighter but its not freestanding and more expensive. The BA Tiger Wall is another good option but it probably won go on sale for a while since its so new, but maybe you could use the REI coupon 20% off coupon on it.

The findings foreshadow continued strife within the Republican coalition, as establishment and tea party wings vie for superiority. What the survey cannot predict is how the damage to the GOP will affect its chances of winning control of the Senate or holding its House majority in 2014. Democrats have an eight point advantage in House races among voters nationally, according to the poll, but based on history, that lead is not predictive of a change in House majority..

We have other mountains in this state; in fact, we have quite a few, but none compares to the ever present sentinel that has become the most recognized symbol of our state. There are those who live in parts of Eastern Washington who do not have the opportunity to see Mt. Rainier daily but for those of us close to the Cascade Mountain Range, Mt.

The relationship would hinge on how Clinton decides to begin her presidency. She could claim an electoral mandate and launch a pitched battle to pass the more progressive parts of her agenda. Or she could start with a relatively incremental push on a menu of domestic issues on which she and Ryan have shared interests, including infrastructure investment, criminal justice issues and anti poverty measures..

But it was really just a drop in the ocean. They haven’t got enough of the aid through here. Now, in part, in fairness, that’s because they say they have to make a proper assessment first. Strengthening the ATF’s ability to track and record gun sales 3. Universal background checks for gun purchases 4. A ban on magazines capable of holding more than 10 rounds of ammunition 5.

A trio of competitive congressional races takes top billing in Minnesota. Democratic Rep. Rick Nolan will try to fend off a rematch challenge from Republican Stewart Mills to hang on to a northeastern Minnesota district that has been a liberal stronghold for decades.

He puts in work with his scoring, rebounding and defense. 2 well deserved FMVP shows he didn just go to GS to win easy rings but he went there to win and dominate.Man I was pissed at first but now I in awe in how he can just steal Curry limelight by going fucking nuts every finals. Last finals he went off like a maniac averaging 30+ and now this finals with game 3 was a MAJOR game.

Gone is the anxiety that political newcomer Matt Bevin could deny McConnell a spot on November’s ballot. Now the most powerful Republican in the Senate has turned his eyes toward improving his chances against his likely Democratic contender, Alison Lundergan Grimes. ‘He’s been called a hero for saving Kentucky jobs,’ the female narrator says in McConnell’s ad.

But before long, such freeze frames disappeared, along with the cigars, Buicks and mojitos. The Berlin style rave was very real, not something I had imagined after too much Havana Club. Alongside it was crumbling, desperate infrastructure, and a country battered by isolation, where the cows were skinny and the streets more pothole than tarmac..

The whole reason he wanted to take the fight away from earth was to avoid earth people getting in the way and getting hurt. But what about Titan people? Tony Stark was willing to trade lives. He was willing to endanger Titan civilians in order to protect Earth.

So there you have my list. I could go on and on but I need to leave early for an appointment and it takes quite awhile to get across town when I’m driving behind a bike rider and nudging them occasionally with my bumper; I also get delayed when I slow up to laugh at the Californians with umbrellas who are protesting the lack of sunshine. And yes, traffic will get diverted onto side streets if there is a backup on the freeway, but mainly only Pacific Avenue and Martin Way along about a ten block stretch.

“Freshman Sen. Jennifer Branning, a Republican from Philadelphia [Miss.], presented the bill. She said it only has one goal: ‘This bill in no way allows for discrimination by one person against another. Dress cops up as soldiers, give them military equipment, train them in military tactics, tell them they’re fighting a “war,” and the consequences are predictable. These policies have taken a toll. Among the victims of increasingly aggressive and militaristic police tactics: Cheye Calvo, the mayor of Berwyn Heights, Md., whose dogs were killed when Prince George’s County police mistakenly raided his home; 92 year old Katherine Johnston, who was gunned down by narcotics cops in Atlanta in 2006; 11 year old Alberto Sepulveda, who was killed by Modesto, Calif., police during a drug raid in September 2000; 80 year old Isaac Singletary, who was shot by undercover narcotics police in 2007 who were attempting to sell drugs from his yard; Jonathan Ayers, a Georgia pastor shot as he tried to flee a gang of narcotics cops who jumped him at a gas station in 2009; Clayton Helriggle, a 23 year old college student killed during a marijuana raid in Ohio in 2002; and Alberta Spruill, who died of a heart attack after police deployed a flash grenade during a mistaken raid on her Harlem apartment in 2003.

The Italian company said the rise in revenues was in line with expectations, and margins had also improved over the first quarter. It added the second quarter had seen a positive start, allowing the group to confirm its outlook for the year. ($1 = 0.9189 euros) (Reporting by Silvia Aloisi and Valentina Za; editing by Francesca Landini)..

Rice was involved in an incident in February in which he allegedly struck his fiance, Janay Palmer, in an elevator in an Atlantic City hotel. Video that become public showed Rice pulling Palmer, who was apparently unconscious, from the elevator. Rice pleaded not guilty to a third degree aggravated assault charge and was accepted into a pretrial intervention program, avoiding trial.

Everyday here at fatlogic there is at least one and usually a number of articles that somehow touch on Anorexia Nervosa usually someone claiming or implying heavily they had it. It’s their get out of jail free card because you can’t mention diet otherwise you trigger them and they will relapse. But, this is what almost all of these fat acceptance types that claims AN actually looks like when they looked like cancer patients or where hospitalized..

One of the seven rules reversed by Mr. Trump and the GOP controlled Congress was part of the implementation of a 2007 law passed in the aftermath of the Virginia Tech mass shooting. It would have allowed the Social Security Administration to provide information to the gun background check system of people who have so severe a mental disability that they can perform any kind of work even part time work and who were determined not to be able to manage their own benefits..

Big or Small Frames?If you’re buying the big frame, make sure you look good with it. You might be too obsessed of oversized framed eyeglasses that it has taken over your pretty face. Some people experience serious sliding of the frames down to the end of their nose, so pick one with a cute narrow pair to make it convenient looking into fresh air and a good size reading area..

The phenomenon is the latest twist in nearly three months of intermittent Palestinian border protests. To many Israelis the “kite terrorism” is yet more evidence of implacable and creative Palestinian hostility. But viewed another way it is a desperate ploy on behalf of the 2 million Palestinians largely penned into the impoverished seaside strip.

At a very young age I was diagnosed with Pigment dispersion syndrome. This is a rare eye disease that I was born with, but was not diagnosed until I was eleven years of age. My Optometrist discovered an ill regularity in the eye and recommended me to see an Ophthalmologist (eye specialist) in Columbus, Ohio.

Specialist Giunta then advanced forward on his own initiative. As he crested the top of a hill, he observed two insurgents carrying away an American soldier. He immediately engaged the enemy, killing one and wounding the other. DR. Must prove to its allies it is ready to play an important role in the new world now being created as the Cold War ends.

Martin Brody is the new police chief of Amity, an island resort town somewhere in New England. He has a wife named Ellen, and two sons named Michael and Sean. On a Summer morning, Brody is called to the beach, where the mangled body of Summer vacationer Chrissie Watkins has washed ashore.

Muslims already account for about 10% of the French population and the proportion is rising fast as the immigrants are having far more children than the natives. Some even predict that France might have a majority Muslim population within a couple of generations. There are already “culture wars”, often all too literally: immigrant youths rioted throughout France in 2005 and 2007.

A common response is “They’re taking our jobs”. No. They’re doing our jobs. It started off with rushing my kids out the door and off to school downtown, then racing uptown to get to an event titled “Maternal Health in Crisis” which took place across from the UN (not an easy area of town to access this week). The event primarily focused on health workers as a critical and attainable solution to reducing preventable deaths for moms, babies and children under five. I was invited to speak at the event by my friend Ann Starrs, who runs Family Care International, and who was also one of our expert advisers on the documentary film NO WOMAN, NO CRY..

Nebraska voters have the opportunity to reinstate the death penalty and reverse last year’s decision by the Legislature. The citizen led ballot measure has triggered millions in campaign spending. Rep. Goodell: No one in the NFL, to my knowledge, and I had been asked that same question and the answer to that is no. We were not granted that. We were told that was not something we would have access to.

Also, keep in mind, roses love the sun. If possible they should have a full day of sun or at least seven hours. Finally, in spring offer roses in containers a tablespoon of Epsom salts. “If there is a sense of lawlessness on the system for the small things, those things could quickly get out of hand,” Parker said. “Our goal is not to create a wild wild west environment, as MARTA police out there doing enforcement. ..

‘Everybody can have an equal, mediocre salary.’ ‘The debate that needs to be had between the two parties needs to be: Do we want equality of income, or greatness of opportunity?’ he added. ‘The opportunity for greatness excites the American people much more.’ During an hour long question and answer session with Greg Brown, the chairman and CEO of Motorola Solutions Inc., Christie also took the opportunity to praise former President George W. Bush.

My treatment went well enough that I fell asleep. All I remember of my waking dream is the feeling of the facialist’s fingers giving me the most sensational head and neck massage. For fifty minutes, I was suspended somewhere between fantasy and reality.

I drastically prefer one big compartment + packing cubes, which the GR3 offers. That way you have flexibility to carry One Big Thing instead of A Lot of Smaller Things, which the GR2 offers. The main compartment on the GR2 is no slouch, but I routinely would end up saying, “I guess I just leave this zippered pouch unused, because trying to cram something in here will add a big lump and make it harder to fit in the overhead there room in the big compartment anyway.” Ultimately, the zippered sections are for cords, socks, boxers, t shirts, etc.

“It took a long time, but a lot of that was because it was very on and off,” said Schechter of getting the book together. “I think it was maybe 2008 when I started. What I decided to do was write a couple of sample chaptersto see if I really had a book in me, as opposed to a long magazine article..

Second, India needs to be more open and confident. The mean spirited refusal to allow Pakistanis to attend the Association of Asian Studies meeting at Ashoka University shows how inward, petty we have become. Finally, as Prime Minister Narendra Modi has belatedly recognised in his new non aligned, Manmohan like foreign policy, China matters..

For the other half of the sample, we asked individuals the same question, but also first told them how those groups tend to use their donations. But we were wrong, as you can see in the figure below. The y axis plots the proportion of respondents who said they either wanted no limits or high limits on that group (as opposed to low limits or an outright ban on contributions from that group).

Reporter: George, right now the votes simply aren’t there in either the house or the senate. The white house is working with Paul Ryan to try to get the votes in the house. What they’re doing is opening up the possibility of changes to appease the conservative members but the more you do that, George, you run into problems with the moderates so this is a really tough battle but I would not underestimate the ability of trump to get this done.

Hers was a Russia banking on the promises of an unfinished capitalist revolution; her brother remained behind in the crumbled wreckage of their childhood, trapped in isolation and the unforgiving legacy of the past. Tatyana’s was the world of Moscow’s emerging, tenuous middle class, a whirl of European vacations and after work aerobics classes, supermarkets and traffic jams, rising expectations and perpetual insecurity. Brother Misha’s Mokshan, 440 miles to the southeast, was a place of rusting factories and Communist era bosses, where money remained more concept than reality and the summer harvest of cabbage and potatoes supplied food for the long winter.”All the positive changes that happened in my life are the consequences of the new system,” she said.”Things are harder now,” he countered.

Congress has until the end of Friday to figure out a way to fund the Department of Homeland Security. Otherwise, the department shuts down. But a “shutdown” doesn’t mean workers go home. T.

Serious art and photography collectors already know to visit Photo Eye. Of course Canyon Road has art. But the Railyard District feels newly charged with its edgy, contemporary galleries. For now, they can’t sell the ivory because of a worldwide ban set in 1989 by aninternational convention that protects elephants and other animals. At the next meeting of the group in Johannesburg in September, the two southern African nations will press a proposal to lift the prohibition. Yet a study released Monday says that could be a risky move in the bid to save the few African elephants that remain..

The Washington Post reported Monday night that the president himself was responsible for the drafting of Donald Trump Jr.’s misleading statement after the New York Times revealed that the younger Trump had arranged a meeting with a Russian lawyer in June 2016. Individuals say White House advisers had decided to be transparent about the meeting, but the president changed the game plan at the last minute to misleadingly suggest that the meeting was about adoption. The full truth soon came outthat the meeting was arranged to discuss compromising information, supposedly from the Russian government, about Hillary Clinton..

Does Palin believe that? As a proponent of Biblical literalism, she should probably defend slavery as an institution sanctioned by God. In fact, what better way to honor Lincoln’s legacy on racial emancipation and black rights than inaugurate a gifted African American man as President on the bicentennial of his birth and repudiate the man who refused to honor Martin Luther King, Jr. And the long struggle for equal rights in this country..

A Class: Death Gatling seems to care more about ranks and how he is viewed by the world, maybe i judging too early but from what we seen he hasn displayed anything heroic, he refuses help from S class heroes and just wants to prove himself. I believe after his encounter with Garou he will learn and evolve as a person, but till then. Sneck maybe weak but at least he tries really hard and what we seen from him makes him worthy of being a HERO..
