Spread across a spectrum of sectors from agriculture to banking to housing, cooperatives are a type of business enterprise owned and controlled by the members that they serve. Rabobank is a cooperative bank headquartered in the Netherlands and one of the 30 largest financial institutions in the world. It is governed by its members and provides a wide range of financial services..

Jax is so fucking manipulative it’s terrifying. Like actually terrifying to think about. In a matter of hours he convinced his (brainwashed) girlfriend that this happened, then orchestrated a situation on the golf course and got 3 other grown men to believe in the narrative Jax promoted.

Schwarzkopf says an Iraqi terminal is leaking. Representative says she will stress skills training. State faces a deficit of $7 billion to $10 billion. I was a freshman in high school on 9/11 at a school within commuting distance from NYC and in close proximity to a nuclear power plant. 2 4 times a year we spend half a school day practicing what would happen if the plant melted down, water and iodine distribution, evacuation to buses followed by a what would be a 45 min drive down the sole major highway in no traffic to the fallout shelter. We were all aware that if anything serious happened we were all going to die, as a highschooler it was funny and dark but I can imagine what that experience would be like as an elementary student.

Larry the Cucumber and Bob the Tomato remind me in a lot of ways of Harold Green and his Uncle Red Green on the Red Green Show. I have never found out if this is intentional or not. However, Harold and Red really make me laugh and when I heard Harold’s voice patterns coming out of a cucumber, I was beside myself with hilarity..

Soviet nostalgists some of them still Communist stalwarts, others simply those who thought back wistfully to the country’s former superpower status welcomed his embrace of symbols like the Soviet red star he ordered back onto the army’s banners and the disgraced KGB coup plotter he invited to his Kremlin inauguration.Putin carefully cultivated these uncertainties about his intentions. As a politician, he had the gift of seeming to be all things to all people, of uniting an otherwise fractured society with soothing words about stability and order. At least initially, that was all that most people had to judge him by.

Anthony Myers doesn’t have to wait any longer for his college basketball career to begin. Interscholastic Athletic Association final in 2009, Myers was all set to sign with Fordham. The only holdup was that the Rams didn’t have a scholarship available, but then Rams Coach Dereck Whittenberg told Myers that he anticipated a player would be transferring shortly, thus opening a spot for Myers.

Here’s one that every other school will be following closely. Indiana, in the aftermath of Kelvin Sampson’s misdoings, says it expects no further penalties from the NCAA. The Hoosiers are operating four scholarships under the NCAA limit of 13 this season, but only one of those is related to Sampson’s additional, impermissible recruiting; two scholarships were withheld in anticipation of APR woes and one simply is not being used this season so that Indiana has another scholarship for an incoming player next year..

KUHN: You’re right, Steve. It’s a political theater on a grand scale. Every year for the first 2 weeks of March this time, you know, thousands of delegates of the National People’s Congress stream towards the Great Hall of the People on Tiananmen Square, which is decked out with red flags and hammer and sickle emblems.

Amid an investor backlash against his high pay, Occidental Petroleum Chief Executive Ray Irani will announce next month at a board meeting that he is leaving that post, according to an investor and a company source who did not want to be named. The sources said that Irani, 75, would name a date in 2011 for his departure as chief executive, but would remain on the board. Will pay $14 million to its former chairman Ray Irani as part of a severance agreement, ending a year of turmoil and drama at the oil giant.

For non journalists, this might seem a trivial thing, but it’s actually a BFD and they know it. We asked former Reid spokesman Jim Manley about the incident (he also talked to Tracy) and Manley tells us: “To paraphrase that great line from Shakespeare or maybe it was from Animal House, I can’t remember anymore, but what can I say, I fucked up and trusted them. They did damage to Senator Reid and I will always be sorry for that.” (Halperin and Heilemann didn’t respond to a request for comment.) [TNR].

However, although the two live very different lives and are rarely seen together, they do take time out almost every day to work out together. Just this Saturday afternoon they were spotted together lifting weights at the David Barton gym in Chelsea. Anderson wore an FDNY T shirt and Ben sported a baseball cap, while the two worked out in almost silence, with Anderson occasionally checking his phone for messages..

When a federal judge ordered Apple earlier this week to unlock a phone used by one of the assailants in a mass shooting in San Bernardino, Calif., she cited a law from 1789. It could make you wonder if the nation’s legal system is having a hard time keeping up with the fast pace of technological change. So, I asked a few legal experts if our old laws can apply to this particular situation..

And on top of that, this was a year where there was no part of the culture that offered something else. Usually pop culture is full of happy stories that get away from politics. But this year, think about it. Yeah, it looking like we never going to agree on this. I don expect my big post will sway your opinion, but it will be up early next week, and I will explain in more detail exactly why I think Kylo was artificially propped up. For now I just say that all the stories are interconnected, so for example anything that affects how the audience views The First Order also affects how they view Kylo.

Also, he not lying. Both JJ and Rian made it a point to build Kylo/Ben to be painfully honest whenever he talking with Rey (starting with TFA “you mean the murderers, traitors and thieves you call friends? you be relieved to find out I have no idea.” he could have easily lied and told her they had them in custody and being tortured to get information/cooperation out of her, but instead admitted to having no clue. Same in TLJ whenever he discussing both himself AND her)..

Pitfalls and Pratfalls: America as No. 1 Debtor Kevin Phillips, Kevin Phillips is publisher of the American Political Report and Business and Public Affairs Fortnightly. Trade Deficit. As relations between the two countries improved, a commitment to limit nuclear arsenals emerged. A series of treaties followed, with the latest going into effect in February 2011. Like its predecessors, the new Strategic Arms Reduction Treaty (START) aims to further reduce and limit strategic arms.

The paper quoted a student,Remy Porsella, who said he heard screaming and saw hundreds of people running out the doors of Fertitta Hall. “It was full panic,” Porsella told the Daily Trojan.”The campus is safe,” said Mike Lopez, an officer with the Los Angeles Police Department. And the person who raised the alert was detained to determine her state of mind; he said an incident commander called it “an episode” she had had..

After a long as time of posting the comic he decides he wants to give it a serious story. He makes two characters fall in love, get married, and have a kid. Of course no one takes it seriously, the comic is unfunny, and the story he made was pretty meh.

I think that if the plans are made far in advance, confirming the day before is a good idea, especially for flaky friends. I made plans a few weeks ago to have dinner with a friend while she was in my area. I almost forgot and I confirmed with her a few hours before.

I just haven been at a B for a while and the one time I felt like going to J Crew to shop, their sales were lackluster. I feel like they should be going on all out on reaching their customers with sales but it only applied to full price merchandise. Just a personal opinion and likely a bit too far but it left a bad taste in my mouth when I was trying to check out and the associate said none of the sale stuff was included.

Terrified to leave the relationship, Ayala stayed and alleged that she suffered abuse throughout summer 2016. She was attacked “every three or four days,” she told New Times. “[H]e beat her at times, choked her, broke clothes hangers on her legs, threatened to chop off her hair or cut out her tongue, pressed knives or scissors to her face, and held her head under water,” according to the paper..

Denon 1400 is a very good choice. Open that box up and get things pumping. You do want to get the biggest best sub you can afford right now. So ask yourself, “do I really want my but to stand out? ” Choose pockets that are medium in size, and sit a bit closer to the waist. This will gives a lifted look. So, I bet you want to know the name of this jean? Jag jeans, these are by far the most comfortable best fitting jeans I have ever owned.

Yes, barbed wire was also invented in that era. And Mac says the ketchup inspired fringe dripping off the headdress looks a bit like blood in the right lighting appropriate for a decade about the Civil War..

There is a vibrant restaurant scene in Guantanamo Bay, but sadly there are no Yelp reviews (“The wait was really long”). Maine Governor Paul LePage is afraid of newspapers, maybe because he took the “black and white and read all over” riddle as a threat. And ex FEMA Director Michael Brown’s Super Bowl tweets proved that Shannon Sharpe’s blackout commentary actually wasn’t the worst of the night.

Now that the bullshit narrative of Belichick being a petty little bitch has been established we see the bullshit narrative extended to a whole bunch of scenarios. Belichick obviously threw the SB by not playing Butler, even though Butler had been mediocre and on a downswing to end the season, as well as sick enough to make a hospital visit and miss multiple practices the week leading up to the SB. It couldn have been that the scheme called for CBs better able to play tall WRs and that once Butler was informed he wouldn be starting went into an understandably fucked state of mind on the sideline.

Or come up with a better answer. Anything but nothing. Doing nothing is cowardice. He had an emotional affair with just the most awful woman and I mean like even if he never had the affair with her I would never ever want to meet this woman, she was just all kinds of bad person.One day we finally just said out loud that we were miserable and decided to have one last go. We took a few days to, gently and kindly but firmly, write down all of the issues we had. Then we came together to read them and talk about them, and it was like a huge weight was lifted.

Yes, I think I see where this is going. The residents of NOLA are lazy, ungrateful and underserving, right? What kind of people do we historically associate those qualities with? Hmm.

The Doors were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 1993. Their records have been reissued frequently and the band was the subject of a 1991 Oliver Stone movie, “The Doors,” starring Val Kilmer as Morrison and Kyle MacLachlan as Manzarek, who complained that the film stereotyped Morrison as a hopeless drunk and also omitted calmer, more humorous times. The Doors’ fame has hardly faded even though they’re one of the few groups not to allow their music to be used for commercials, a source of great tension among surviving members.

“I understand them wanting to do that. It’s difficult when you show someone your baby and they say it’s ugly. It’s very difficult to filter what they are saying and still stay on track to what you think the game should be. The work is brutally hard. Ricardo Salvador, who is director of the food and environment program for the Union of Concerned Scientists, and whose family includes farmworkers, described a typical day to me. to leave enough time to get to a pickup point (a parking lot or vacant lot), be picked up (or not the labor contractors who collect workers and deliver them to farms generally don’t take all of them), and get trucked to the worksite.

9. Joe Namath: After Super Bowl III, Namath, a playboy bachelor, was the biggest thing in American sports. He decided to capitalize on it by opening a night club named, cleverly, Bachelor III. Most coffee makers will come with instructions on how much coffee you should add per cup. Actually, the coffee makers are usually pretty right on in regard to how much coffee should be used per cup. But, everyone has a different coffee strength they prefer.

The new Northern Ireland secretary, James Prior, welcomed the prisoners’ decision. Three days later he announced that prisoners in the Maze could wear their own clothes. Other privileges were restored and over time the hunger strikers’ demands were substantially met, but the British government never made formal recognition of the prisoners’ right to political status..

Balls are going up the middle, knocked down, erratic type play. It looks like, to me, Goozie’s mind is somewhere else. He’s the guy I’m most disappointed in.”. The fundamental problem is that the vast majority of the laws on the books today are not there to protect our rights; they are there to regulate people for the benefit of the Governing Class. All principles against coercion, intimidation and fraud have been clearly identified and applied long ago. Without an individual’s right to life, liberty and property no other rights are possible.

What Happened to Primatene Mist?Primatene Mist stopped being sold on December 31, 2011. Why are they no longer available on our store shelves? The FDA has banned all asthma inhalers which contain chloroflouorocarbons (CFCs). This ban only affects Primatene Mist because it is the only asthma inhaler that has been approved by the FDA to be sold without a prescription.

Catherine: I actually binge watch a lot of TV, which I think surprises the people who know me. But I work with written words all day, and there’s a fair amount of eyestrain involved in my work, so I tend to really veg at the end of the day. I’ve recently binge watched The Office (again), The Good Place, Grace and Frankie.

My concern is no longer the item faulty construction. My ophthalmologist staff was able to repair the issue in approximately 3 minutes at absolutely no charge to me. What troubles me is that I expected much more from a brand I have been loyal to for so many years.

All of this is happening in the National Capital of India. Perceptively, a capital should have the model governance system, which could inspire all other States to follow suit in a democracy and semi federal governance system like India. The moot question is, “Whether the Laws are made to fit to People or the People are tailored to fit Laws?” The answer to this shouldn’t be as difficult as it once was to answer which came first: Chicken or Egg!.

I rode a lot of 29ers the weekend I demoed the SB5+ and I tended to like those better. That said I got my fastest time on my favorite flow trail on the SB5+, and I dont think its a bad bike. I just don remember it feeling as playful and silly as the bikes Ive been liking better..

“As we said at the start of this investigation, we have zero tolerance for cheating or academic dishonesty of any kind, and the students involved in this incident will now face disciplinary action,” Schools Chancellor Dennis M. Walcott said in a statement. “I want to thank Principal Zhang for her assistance and for the steps she has already taken to restore academic integrity.”.

Cow slaughter is illegal in Haryana: In 2015, the state government passed a law that punishes the slaughter of cows with up to 10 years in prison. Over 20 Indian states forbid either cow slaughter or beef eating or both. As a result, access to beef, which is consumed by Muslims, as well as Christians and lower caste Hindus, is difficult in many states.

But he laid down a marker. Russia insists that the United States respects Russia’s privileged interests. That appears to be the new code for sphere of influence. While English will likely be understood by many in the larger cities, you may have language trouble in smaller or rural areas. In this case, Arabic and French are probably equal fallbacks for the intrepid traveler. Of course, if your Arabic was learned somewhere else (like Egypt) prepare for some polite snickers!.

Joyce, who was detailed to the White House from the NSA at the start of the Trump administration, has served more than 25 years at the spy agency. There, he held various leadership positions. He headed the elite hacking or “offensive” division, called Tailored Access Operations, which penetrated networks overseas to gather foreign intelligence..

Mark Brunell, a former NFL quarterback and now an ESPN analyst did not find Brady believable. “I did not believe what Tom had to say. Those balls were deflated. Sallie Mae once called me 5 times in one day because I made an automatic debit to pay off my school interest while in school, and didn realize I didn have enough to pay that month. I can wait to pay them off as soon as possible because they are so annoying. I get a letter every two weeks: “We are ready to help you again”! Fuck off, I don want your help after scamming an 18 year old kid to get a variable rate loan.

She said she did not know why the administration had released images Sunday of young boys in cages at a Texas detention center but not of young girls.Trump has been closely monitoring the coverage but has been suspicious of it, telling associates he believes that the media cherry picks the most dramatic images and stories to portray his administration in a negative light, according to one senior administration official.The images in the media contrast with more positive photos that Trump’s aides have shown the president depicting detained children smiling, playing video games and exercising outside, said the official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity to be candid.Meanwhile, Trump and his advisers were unable to stanch the wellspring of public opposition. Some Republican elected officials joined Democrats in expressing moral outrage and calling for an immediate end to the administration’s family separation policy.In an indication that GOP leaders fear negative ramifications in November’s midterm elections, Rep. Steve Stivers (Ohio), who chairs the House Republicans’ campaign arm, called on the administration to change its policy and “stop needlessly separating children from their families.”Rep.

BLOOMNew San Jose Museum is Escape Heaven for Kids STEPHEN G. A little creativity can help. PETER S. Torque delivery is improved over a broader rev range.

Springbrook has a good game against Blake (9 2) on Friday. Other Friday games to watch include No. 13 Bishop McNamara at No. Skies on Sundayhave a veil of high clouds. A warm wind from the south providesa good chance that some areas could hit record highs as temperatures peak in the mid 60s to around 70. Clouds are likely to increase in the evening as a storm in the Mississippi Valley starts to fire up and head our way.

They found similar results for another widely used practice, liquid unloading. Rising gas carries liquid with it that can plug up the well. When workers remove the liquid, gas escapes into the air, sometimes tens of thousands of cubic feet of gas.. Girls who wear eye glasses cannot show off their eye makeup: This is utter nonsense! Big round or square or oval shaped glasses can easily and properly show off beautifully made up eyes. Big framed glasses actually accentuate the eyes in a very becoming way. I personally find that there is only one drawback of wearing glasses and makeup, which is wearing lots of mascara, as the eye lashes keep on touching the glass and that can sometimes be irritating.

Calhoun, who is the special assistant to UConn athletic director Warde Manuel, recently told ESPN that he was in good health and wouldn’t rule out a return to coaching. When reached for comment on Friday morning, Calhoun declined to talk specifically about any interest in the BC job. However, he did not rule out his interest in returning to the sidelines..

Every day is Earth Day, folks, as I was reminded by this salsify puff I photographed late one summer. A global clean energy leader will ensure a heck of a lot more jobs, and a clean, safe future.

That deal is still active and probably the single best purchase i made recently if you want some smaller knives. These things seem to disappear on occasion so when I place an order, I usually load up. Not bad for a $90 MSRP knife, and it the cheapest by far i seen them anywhere..

It acts as a “service layer,” which gathers information on the different marketplaces selling that specific item. For example, say you want to sell your Kindle. Sold knows the approximate running rate and will generate a fair price for the item in its current condition.Here is how it works:After you describe the item you are selling, Sold asks you to take at least four pictures of the item, giving you tips on what to show in the pictures (to get the most value for the item).

Video game production is a great industry to grow here in Australia. It is green, smart, high tech, and education heavy. Such production generates heaps of government revenue. I have never spat my gum in the street, and always dispose of it in bin. I would have no problem with a 1p tax to help clean streets of such rubbish and heavier fines for those found littering. However, surely the same tax should also apply to all fast food outlets, chip shops, newsagents and anywhere which sells items in a plastic bag..

At some point, the NFL will reveal the results of its investigation, but it seems obvious that this may be the time to take back a little of the game from the quarterbacks. The NFL, a multibillion dollar business, can afford to hire independent equipment managers on the sideline. After all, that’s what they do for the Super Bowl.

Education is the key. I’m not saying stigma is ever going to go away, because it has existed in different areas throughout history. But it’s going to take normal, everyday people who have been there and back to let it be known that yes, this thing is devastating, but it’s not anything to be ashamed of.

Both of Brazil’s wins went to TV Globo productions. “The Invisible Woman,” about a publicist married to his boss whose relationship is threatened by the appearance in his life of his imaginary ideal woman, was chosen the best comedy. “The Illusionist,” the story of a scam artist who becomes an illusionist after meeting a magician in jail, won in the telenovela category..
