Within a year of the spill, Chief herself explored the unique ways that the Diné could be exposed to contaminants in the river, by surveying the communities. She found that her people use the river in more than 400 ways, including cultural, medicinal and spiritual practices, such as putting river clay on their face for prayers and collecting and crafting reeds for baskets. This survey illustrated the potential exposure pathways for Navajo community members not captured in the recreational risk assessment.
Ill-applied science can wield some hideous blinders sometimes. Question is, is it intentional?
... these Blue Dogs who are gutting the already underwhelming Dodd Frank may not be with us much longer, at least politically. And even though the party is remarkably insistent on adhering to a strategy of corporate toadying that has led it to hemorrhage seats at all levels of government, if these seats all go red, it might be a message even the Democrats might not be able to ignore.
The midterms may not go exactly the way you expect. Once again - beware the two-coast media. Check news in battleground states directly ... because if history holds, you ain't-a-gonna hear anything like the reality on the ground elsewhere.
Well, I think this competition has been in place, in fact, as Putin said it, certainly since 2004. He actually signals 2004 as a time where there was a decision made in Russia that you couldn’t talk to the Americans and were just going to have to go ahead and build some weapons to make it clear to them that there’s no possible advantage they can gain from missile defenses.
Bush, Cheney and the Doctrine of Pre-Emption. The gift that keeps on giving.
I have a similar one. Make sure if there's anyone around, they're behind you - you'll shoot wood all over the place. Don't do with within feet of your precious vehicles or house, either.
No matter who I order wood from, they never split it small enough to allow for un-smoky fires. Lowes or HD had one of these, so it was a no-brainer (though I really wanted, in my heart of hearts, a double-bladed axe). My recommendation with this - a sizable hunk of wood to rest your intended target upon. Mine's only about 12" across. I'd like to have double that. The present is just too wobbly.
Oh, and run a few turns of duct tape or similar around where the handle meets the head. You will eventually impact that spot, esp. when starting out, and it'll save the handle from deterioration. When your aim gets better with this tool, you can peel it all off.
A paper catalog may have a half-life of about three weeks, whereas a tweet might have a half-life of a few minutes. Calculating this time is important for establishing how frequently a message should be sent.
Funny, I've always thought about social media using this frame of reference, without actually using this label.
First off, Dave's blogging again. HOORAY! Second, he's coming into my RSS aggregator feed. YES. Third, there are so many reasons a horizon can get shifted. I've had the worst time switching from Canon to Nikon. The reference points in the viewfinder are different, and I've had slews of images come with a left-side tilt I've had to correct. Everything looks straight - I put it on a tripod and it's straight. I've come to the conclusion that at certain points of the day, I'm just cockeyed. I have no compunctions about altering the tilt.
Sigma makes a 12-24 'rectilinear' lens. Wonderful for architecture shoots. BUT. Get something too close to a corner, and what is square becomes an odd trapezoid. Architectural features aren't so bad, but if you catch a chair ... it'll turn into something from Alice in Wonderland.
So you're always making compromises to get a 'believable' shot. And, when you pause for a second, a wave of appreciation for what a miracle the human eyeball is.
Ladies, would you take this for a spin? From my experience back in NJ in the '90's, if I didn't know how to cook (not just one meal), I would have freakin' gone broke from eating out or starved to death. Women I dated were actively running away from traditional roles.
The subjects’ ability to discriminate between impossibly jumbled symbols within fractions of a second is well above the 99th percentile, and proves their extra neurological wiring without the need for expensive brain scans.
I love a simple, clever solution that obviates the need for expensive tech.
Political science, for example, has become increasingly focused on disciplinary methods, and the history profession has largely abandoned the study of war, peace, and diplomacy.
And boy, does that limit perspicacity. Hard to go both broad and deep, but it is necessary to at least *try*.
Terribly bad joke, of course. But such people need to be pulled up short. I used to earn $18/hour as a temp in 1984. You who do this should all be ashamed, ostracized ... cast out from civilized society. If this is a harbinger of the 'gig economy', I can tell you exactly who is getting 'gigged' and who is doing the 'gigging.'
Later: If you don't understand the reference ...
A vector of risk I hadn't thought of. Given our drought status, drones and forests may end up being a deadly mix. I'd recommend operators have buckets, shovels, and a 5 gallon container of water available, but likely not even that would be enough given how tinder-dry we are. A ban might be in order over BLM and National Forest land. You'll piss off the social media 'influencers', but who cares? It's the landscape we must live in and with.
All we need now is some fool of a governmental entity or space corporation to send up a couple of rockets bearing the equivalent of loads of rocks, and spreading them across varying orbits. Trapping humanity forever in its slum.
Explain to me why any college should let a card-carrying white supremacist or Nazi speak. "Open to other viewpoints" is not a valid argument - we defeated these people. These are philosophies that have been proven bankrupt and backward-looking.
But if you must, set up the stage as they did in The Blues Brothers. Heavy steel mesh. To expect any other sort of reception is criminal ignorance.
The Right is just extending their attack on education. The same old talking points, now broadcast en long en large by a tag-team.
For shame, Times. This is not being open to opposing opinions. This is sensationalist clickbait at its worst, and will harm America. So says the blogger who's been purposely avoiding Brooks since 2003.
