    The tale of two cities:

    You have the whole state of Mississippi that took the brunt of this storm and had the most damage. Everyone from everywhere had their pick-ups, trailers, and most importantly chainsaws helping. In a few days to two months they were ok and most had a few years of firewood with plenty to share.

    Then you had the choas in New Orleans (Louisiana had very little damage). The levees break and flooding is allowed to bring chaos. Martial law is declared and National Guard is brought in to take the guns from homes that were not even flooded. People are forced into the hellish SuperDome. Police leaving the departments and some help looting of stores like Walmart. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PYn-P72lp3M

    -I refuse to use these machines as their safety and effect in the human body has not been proven..

    Because of a regulatory Catch-22, the airport X-ray scanners have escaped the oversight required for X-ray machines used in doctors' offices and hospitals. The reason is that the scanners do not have a medical purpose, so the FDA cannot subject them to the rigorous evaluation it applies to medical devices.

    They need to make an app for cell-phones that list the good companies and for income they could list jobs for these companies. Could work for all part-timers and not just the kids also. Could also mark the businesses that are good or bad like NHK does to people's homes.

    http://www.autonews.com/article/20150205/OEM11/150209914/takata-whistleblower-willing-to-testify-on-deadly-airbag-flaws

    Takata has told regulators it found shortcomings in airbag inflator plants, including their controls for moisture, which can change the combustion characteristics of ammonium nitrate. The company uses the chemical in pellets that ignite, creating the gas that fills airbags when the devices are deployed. The Automotive Systems Laboratories R&D group was under pressure by management at Takata’s Tokyo headquarters to reduce costs compared with a previous-generation chemical propellant that used a compound called tetrazole, Lillie said. A shortage of high-quality, low-cost tetrazole resulted in Takata losing about $10 per passenger-side airbag inflator and earning a small margin on driver-side inflators, Lillie said. By moving to ammonium nitrate, Takata’s raw materials would be about one-tenth the cost, he said.

    =It is really a combination of factors from the linked article. But it seems it was management's decision all the way.

    Peter Payne AUG. 17, 2015 - 01:39PM JST (Quietly making plans to leave before the inheritance tax jumps to 75%.) Posted in: Japan's economy contracts 0.4% in April-June quarter

    With a haircut like this -- Would it just be easier to shave the whole head? (=100+% tax)

    Japan is getting into dangerous territory:

    .1. Growing military that is looking into foreign expansion.

    .2. Higher taxes leading to bigger waste (corruption).

    .3. Bigger spending leading to bigger corruption.

    .4. Moral bankruptcy specifically among the leaders/politicians. (will see more when the money gets tighter)

    .5. NSA style surveillance grid with everyone/everything (all data) being questioned unless you are part of the corrupt morally-bankrupt elite.

    .6. A Gov. that routinely does not listen to the populace and a media that turns its' back to a populace in protest.

    Germany's past and present ties with Yasukuni shrine uncomfortable for some

    -there is not much data here to support this argument.

    For a contrast look at "operation paperclip"

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Paperclip Nazi / USA-CIA cooperation after the war.

    Otto Ambros was a Third Reich chemist who served as director of the German corporation that produced the gas used in the death camps. He was tried at Nuremberg, found guilty of mass murder, and sentenced to eight years. While he was serving time in prison, Operation Paperclip officials arranged for his sentence to be commuted. In 1951, Ambros was hired to work at a clandestine facility north of Frankfurt called Camp King. His work, sanctioned by the Defense Department, ultimately involved the testing of sarin toxins on American soldiers without their knowledge.

    I was so angry when they sold the Nordiques, and then to have such an amazing team win the Stanley Cup the following year, it was just so painful...

    It still is painful and that is why they are in the ridiculous NHL bidding process that they probably cannot afford ($500 million/ population 500,000 Quebec City) even thought every night in Canada is National Hockey Night.

    It is an amazing tradition thing for these people. Peter_Šťastný = Joe Sakic == Paul Stastny It was amazing TV at the time to watch the Avalanche will that first title. Where did this Joe Sakic guy come from?

    Toyota considers a switch to Nippon Kayaku inflators to be precautionary, in case further recalls are required, said the person with direct knowledge of the deal.

    It is a smart investment on Toyota's side to insure future supply of quality air-bags in other potential cases of recall. Of course if quality was kept constant this would not even be an issue, but many cars/parts are made where labor and quality is cheaper like Takata-Mexico.

    By asking Nippon Kayaku to increase production could backfire, less quality control.

    -all of these air-bag suppliers are way over typical 100% production just to supply the massive amount of recalled air-bags. =Hopefully quality has not slipped too much and certainly not to the low quality standards that were benchmarked by Takata in Mexico.

    The greater issue is are people willing to accept low quality cars/parts from employees/management that could care less. Is this the new trend and will people and governments (TPP agreement etc) accept these cars or will the recalls continue.

    The Nordiques (Quebec) were sold for $75 million in 1995 and became the Colorado Avalanche and Stanley Cup Winner their first season (1995-1996). Now they want them back at about 7x the price and you do not even get a team for that price.

    According to documents on the FDA website, women taking flibanserin reported on average 4.4 sexually satisfying encounters per month, compared to 3.7 in a placebo group and 2.7 before beginning the study.

    Just take the placebo and get 50% of the benefits without any of the side-effects.

    By contrast, President Barack Obama chose diplomacy with Iran to make clear to the world that such unilateralism had ended. His administration slowly and painstakingly built a sanctions regime that brought to bear the combined power of the world’s major economies and dozens of other countries. It was a slower, more methodical approach. Though most now agree that “crippling sanctions” brought Iran to the negotiating table, many tend to gloss over the fact that it was diplomatic engagement - not unilateral action - that made the sanctions possible and produced the agreement. We should also not forget that many of the current opponents of the agreement strongly opposed the diplomatic effort to build that international consensus.

    == Sanctions were in place against Iran since 1979.

    In reality this is the old Omega 6 (unsaturated) vs Omega 3 (saturated) fats issue. (Omega 6 to 3 Ratio)

    You really need the organic saturated Omega 3 fats (fish oil, animal fats, coconut oil). Olive oil is tricky because if heated can become unsaturated.

    The worst case for Omega 6 (besides being unsaturated) is your typical fast food joint where that heated oil has been used all week. Heated Omega 6 with give you more unsaturation also. These places should be using lard (beef fat) instead (saturated Omega 3 that can be heated somewhat).

    A non-removable glass back means you don’t get access to the battery and you don’t get a microSD card slot either. Like all of Samsung’s flagship phones released this year the Note 5 doesn’t allow for expandable storage.

    Besides the stylus these were the big selling points. Note 2 and 3 new are $180-280 and that is a great deal. I am also a big fan of the Note 8" tablet and feel it has better size and feel than the iPad Mini. For many years large phones (phablets) were compared to the Note series with taking away the battery/uSD access serious geeks will be looking elsewhere or just keeping their old Note.

    What they should have done with this Note 5 release is compare it to the Note Pro line of tablets and show how well that system works and i would have incorporated the watch with that (cell phone to big to handle while walking so the watch is used). You can get very good deals on the NotePro tablets online with the cell/data plans also for only $50-100 more.

    Catlin observed that both Ardin and Sofia Wilén, the second accuser, sent SMS messages and tweets boasting of their conquests following the alleged “rapes.” "In the case of Ardin it is clear that she has thrown a party in Assange’s honour at her flat after the ‘crime’ and tweeted to her followers that she is with the ‘the world’s coolest smartest people, it’s amazing!'” he wrote. “The exact content of Wilén’s mobile phone texts is not yet known but their bragging and exculpatory character has been confirmed by Swedish prosecutors. Niether Wilén’s nor Ardin’s texts complain of rape,” Catlin said.

    -

    Ny still wants to question Assange over the more serious claim of rape, which carries a 10-year statute of limitations due to expire in 2020.

    == James D. Catlin, a lawyer who recently represented Assange, said the sex assault investigation into the WikiLeaks founder is based on claims he didn’t use condoms during sex with two Swedish women. Swedish prosecutors told AOL News last week that Assange was not wanted for rape as has been reported, but for something called “sex by surprise” or “unexpected sex.”

    The image of the mascot for "ama" is bad because you are not going to be pearl diving in a dress. =You need some sort of swimsuit.

    @frank07 That character should be topless since traditional divers also went topless.

    Ever since Fosco Mariani's "Hekura" (the Island of the Fisherwomen) the ama have been very picky of the image they want to portray. -And there were many clones of this book that came later.

    FrontPage Magazine reports that Missourians Organizing for Reform and Empowerment (MORE) has been paying protesters $5,000 a month to demonstrate in Ferguson. Last week, hired protesters who haven’t been paid held a sit-in at MORE’s offices and posted a demand letter online.

    == Many of these "protestors" still have not been paid yet. = Twitter: #CutTheCheck
