    The only reason Trump is leading in the polls is because he unites the fringe right wingers, the majority of the other Republicans are split between the other 10 plus candidates. as the field is narrowed, he wont pick up much more support but the remaining candidates will.

    Completely unrealistic to think they can start construction in Jan. or Feb. Bid competition is usually carried out on conceptual design. Nobody does engineering and "for construction" design and drawings until AFTER they have been awarded to contract. Simply not enough time.

    Lots of boats and ships are deliberately sunk to start artificial reefs which are good feeding and breeding habitat for sea life.

    Do they launch the guy with a catapult and shoot him in the air? PULL! Well, the North Koreans have always made a habit of cracking eggs with a sledge hammer.

    @Pat Telzrow:

    I don't know how old you are or when you were "growing up" but the theory of Milankovitch cycles has been pretty much substantiated by deep ocean, Antarctic and Greenland ice sheet core samples and fossilization records. The earth is entering a new ice age but it will take another 20,000 to 30,000 years (so don't stand outside and watch for it to happen). Anyway, the people you mention do not have a monopoly on fear mongering for political or monetary gain.

    Some people here need to do a little more research regarding atmospheric CO2, some of your assumptions are just wrong. CO2 is a very important part of the atmosphere. If there was no CO2 in the atmosphere, the Earth's mean temperature would be about -33C. CO2 undergoes a natural cycle being released in various methods (respiration being one of them). It is released into the atmosphere and then absorbed b y water, rocks and foliage (trees). Most of the CO2 released by man is absorbed by the oceans, however cold water holds more CO2 than warm water. The warming of oceans release CO2 which leads to an increase in the greenhouse effect. In actuality, CO2 concentrations in the atmosphere FOLLOW global warming, not cause it. CO2 levels today mirror the exact cycle that has occurred for about 400,000 years (long before we were here). This does not mean we should do nothing about it, we just can't continue to put MORE CO2 into the atmosphere. My present project, Snovit CO2 Solutions, is working to capture and store CO2 produced by natural gas production at about 4,500 meters under the ocean floor in a zone that is mostly sandstone which absorbs the CO2 naturally. Anyway, it's a first step. But make no mistake, the earth is entering another glacierization period (about every 70,000 to 100,000 years) and as this happens, the oceans will cool again and hold more CO2.

    "we can’t rule out that it’s gang-related. We’ve had problems for some time with gang crime in this area,” she added.

    Criminal gangs, by definition, do not obey laws! The strictest gun laws in the world do not stop criminals from obtaining and using them. England has had strict gun laws for decades but they didn't stop the IRA from having weapons and bombs in central London.

    Well the clock will probably be available at any 7-11, but finding a -180 Celsius place to keep it might be a little harder.

    There might well be another explanation for this, People (company employees etc.) are getting more reluctant to use their personal smart phones for business purposes. It is sometime difficult to determine what part of your bill is reimbursable and there are also concerns about security of personal information on the smart phone. As a contract employee, my contractor provides me ( as well as their permanent employees) with a company provided phone that is basic mobile phone and SMS capable. For this they usually get the cheapest hardware they can get that serves the purpose.
