The last year or so I taken the approach of buying items from manufacturers who specialise in those items. Sunglasses from Ray Ban, gloves from Dents, umbrellas from Fulton etc. Just to get away from any upselling items. One important point about this poll, however: It was conducted in mid to late June. Since then, there have been a few shifts in the Democratic storyline. For example, at the end of this survey’s interview period, on June 24, Sanders said he would vote for Clinton.
We have to bring her in tomorrow morning for a short stay so they can get the urine sample they couldn get today due to less than good luck inserting a catheter or ultrasound guided needle (I think). I believe they said they needed the sample due to a fever and to see what plan of action is needed to treat her for infection. Also to test for diabetes I believe..
(Later on, a political scientist told the Times the Gore choice was a “high risk strategy” that might “alienate” non Southern voters and also not win Southern states.)Candidates almost always pick someone from an entirely different region of the country from their home state. Exceptions in the post World War II period include Gerald Ford choosing Bob Dole in 1976 (two Midwesterners), Clinton choosing Gore in 1992 (two Southerners) and John McCain choosing Sarah Palin in 2008 (two Westerners though, even at that, Arizona and Alaska are two very far flung parts of the West).So does it work? Maybe. Gore and Clinton, for example, were trying to shore up Democrats in the South, most of whom the party lost in three straight elections since 1980, when Ronald Reagan converted many of those Dixiecrats.
It sounds dumb, but honestly 90% of the people I worked with are just genuinely nice people. And when you take a bunch nice people and put them all under one roof, you get a restaurant that really makes you feel good. CFA is a company that often loses on potential profit because it wants to make the customer happy.
I’ve signed one myself. What that means is when we saw rights violations or the impact of detention that was grave enough to warrant us speaking out publicly we would do that. But it was important that we did that in a careful and controlled manner.
We admire the best dystopian novels because they’re written well and depict people we can relate to. We’re fascinated by the terrible things these characters face, and by how some react bravely and some react cowardly or with resignation. We, as readers, rubberneck to see the misery; we can’t avert our eyes even as we’re enraged by what despots and other vicious officials are doing to citizens.
