Just returned from 14 months in Latin America. No plan other than a basic route, and to be in Patagonia in January. I rarely even looked at my Lonely Planet ebook. Above is a picture of a mouthpiece from a trumpet I had to repair. It was stuck and somebody removed it with a pair of pliers. Mouthpieces are made of brass, which is a soft metal, and you can see the deep scratches which the pliers left. Assessment by Ryan here, and the rough Sweden game was a signal to us all to put the brakes on lofty NHL expectations for Bouchard in 2018Read More →

I ask Armstrong what he felt about Bassons comments. He shakes his head. Mean, any answer I have for that, any true answer, is just going to look like the most arrogant shit answer, he says. The response of your opponent will give you some feedback as to what your opponent is plotting or thinking. It also gives you a chance to set up the opponent for a surprise attack. One particular attack is a simple staight attack to the bottom of the wrist. My next plan was to transfer to the local university to complete my undergraduate studies. But then I found out aboutRead More →

Dieser Vogel ist an der Kehle goldfarbig, der Oberkopf carminroth und der brige Theil des Gefieders dunkelbraun. Oft zu fnf, acht und noch mehr Exemplaren umsummen sie die gelben Blthen der Agaven; bei hellem Sonnenschein glauben wir um die Blthen tanzende Feuerfunken zu sehen. Noch ein anderer prachtvoll gefrbter Vogel belebt diese Buschlandschaft der Kste, der feuerrothe Cardinal, Cardinalis phoeniceus, den man hufig, sich auf den leichten Zweigen der Mimosen wiegend, antrifft. So I that rapper friend Chow mentioned (who had to quit because I got an internship retracted by a white buffoon who offered me a job then flaked after finding my soundcloud). IsnRead More →

I don’t think this kind of appreciation was shared by Steve, though I know he enjoyed participating in the spectacle, as any two year old would by bouncing in his stance, clapping (off beat), and singing nonsense with the songs. He also liked to walk with my mom up the aisle to receive communion. It gave him a chance to wave and greet everyone he knew. The comfort I have with TLOP, I think, is afforded by my experience with the uplifting power of house and gospel music. But it is that very same comfort that gives room for Kanye’s lyrics to aggressively provoke anRead More →

This means evolution will select organisms that are more and more fit for increased CO2 so the ecosystem can endure at a newly set homeostasis. That being said phenotypic plasticity (adaption in behavior of a single organism) and evolution (a population based adaption) has its limitations on its own rate of change. As CO2 levels increase you will have a period where plants can adapt or a smaller proportion biomass organism can take advantage of this until the CO2 outpaces adaption. While clearly not Shatner’s biggest fan, Takei maintained composure till the last few moments of the segment, during which he implied that his exRead More →

Austin, served as a Senior Manager (and before that, as a Manager/Senior Associate) at KPMG in Portland, Oregon, since 2009, where he served as lead for financial statement and internal control audits within the technology industry, including for software and manufacturing companies.

Keeping in line with authentic Belgian flavors, one canRead More →

This year began with Obama talking up the benefits of such a trade deal. But to get TPP written, he first wants Congress to renew his expired power to negotiate trade deals on behalf of the country. Once negotiated, such pacts can then be presented to Congress on a “fast track” for simple approval, with no amendments.. Last year, Wall never got going and neither did the Wizards. Knee issues limited him to 41 games and sapped his effectiveness when he did play. A public feud with Gortat, among others, turned Washington’s locker room into a running joke in league circles. We wouldn’t have artistsRead More →

“Water is a huge part of my diet. I have to force myself to drink it,” she says.There’s no doubt she’ll put on a show for the sport. After all, Sharapova’s made her mark on the court for the past 22 years with more than just her backhand. In a final in which five men finished in under 20 seconds, Bolt made the world class field look like the people you see cycling sedately along towpaths at rowing regattas, just about keeping up with the boats. The Jamaican was in the form of his life, and it showed. Ahead exiting the bend, he transitioned ontoRead More →

I ask Okmalumkoolkat how it feels to be part of hip hop’s golden era, quoting Cassper Nyovest, who I spoke to a week before the Metros, where he cleaned up with the most coveted trophies. He thinks, then says: “I don’t think we are there yet. Hip hop is on its way. Oh, and have you been to a toy store recently? The stuff they’re making for kids now beats the shit out of the junk we used to play with. Educational stuff that’s actually fun, remote control craziness of all kinds, Nerf guns and Super Soakers that look like something out of Doom. Hopefully,Read More →

The Republicans didn’t care. They called Johnson a “drunken tailor” claiming that he had disgraced himself and the Senate by his foolish speech. Lincoln, to his credit, stood by Johnson saying after the event, “I have known Andrew Johnson for many years. It’s a neat play on the tension between manufactured pop product and authentic singing talent, and a rather endearing display of self awareness on Beyonce’s part.FILM REVIEW: Titanic 3D minute by minuteJames Cameron’s Titanic was always a marathon at three hours and counting.
