The guide MFA_Nay is helpful, but I also recommend reading through this recent thread which applies to t shirts too, and well, either hemming them yourself or taking them to a tailor (might be too costly for a t shirt).

In response to the growing threats to shark and ray populations, many CITES member countries, including the United States, agreed recently to co sponsor listing proposals to control trade of several commercially valuable shark and ray species. A listing on CITES would better ensure that products from sharks and rays that are traded internationally come from sustainably managed fisheries that do not drive depletion of wild populations. Public aquariums including Shedd Aquarium applauds the sponsorship efforts and is raising awareness ahead of the September October meeting of the Conference of the Parties to CITES (CoP17) in Johannesburg, South Africa.

Limit 1, I seriously considering a lamp build though. Drilling a hole in a cheap end table, put a buffer tube through it and tighten the lower to the table using the castle nut, attach a cheap upper and a barrel with a Delta ring. Run the cable up through the barrel and buffer tube with a push button switch actuated by the trigger assembly with the hammer taken out and just like that you got a lamp your friends love and your wife hates.

In fact, it makes sense for TSA agents to be looking for bombs that could bring down a plane, not scouring luggage for penknives. The agency is not and cannot be in the business of protecting every passenger and crewmember from every conceivable threat. If it tried, it would have to ban a lot more than knives, and its effort would cost far more money, gobble up more of passengers’ already overbooked airport time or both..

Essentially what I want is an audio source from the receiver that can be different than what is played in the main room to feed into the main source input for the full home audio system, which doesn need the receiver to act as an amp or have it control volume.

PETERSEN: I don’t think so. Affleck has enough things to talk about with this film. You know, there’s all of these conversations about your craft in this film right? and how did Kenneth Lonergan end up casting you instead of Matt Damon?

When I got my Moto X, I could tell that Android has really grown from its early days in terms of maturity and overall stability (especially coming from a guy who had an Android HD2). I ultimately switched back to my iPhone because of the iMessage fiasco, and I didn have time to get that all situated, but that a different story.My overall point is that, in my experience, iOS has been very stable for me, but my few months with my Moto X proved that Android has really all but closed that gap. With that being said though, I been eyeing a Nexus 6P or 5X since the Pixel announcement, and it shocking to me that both of last year offerings have pretty fatal usability issues (bootlooping and battery).

Note: This is a bad thing for a Standards Practices editor to admit I not a grammarian. I in the camp that needs to look some words up every time I use them (principal? or principle?). Or, I turn to some of the better linguists in the room. And to answer the first one. Maybe people want to watch to feel inspired, to know what to do in a city, to know someone reaction to a city, to see a different perspective, etc. Like if I do an informative video on top 10 bars in Barcelona people would see which ones best for them.

It honestly felt like I was time travelling listening in my headphones, I recommend it. Close your eyes, picture yourself in the venue, at that point in time in that year, the Heads around you, the Band playing, picking up all sorts of minute audio details like hearing the whispers of generations past and the side conversations and laughter from the audience and also the gradient that the band ages both physically and artistically as you from from their first creative forays into their final musical expressions. To hear Jerry use that Grace Slick during the first Cold Rain and Snow or Cryptical to the aged wise sage he became in the late 80s, to hear the instruments and their player skills increase, the evolution of the lead guitar and general sonic aesthetic of the band evolve from the psychedelic Acid Test cosmonauts to the American counter cultural institution of the mid 90s before Jerry passing.

Della Porta used this discovery to freeze wine in a glass of salt and ice.

Leaving the jingles aside, if you had a Verizon phone, you’d be able to stay close with your family. Or if you owned a Kia car, you would immediately transform into an ultracool rodent.
