At least one study suggests that gun owners are more likely to be racist.
Unless you drastically increase the surface area of a tree (by making it into sawdust or something) it will compost anaerobically and serve as a carbon sink. also the roots of the tree are already buried underground. (I believe that's around half the mass of the tree)
However the US has outsourced at least in part its deforestation to countries like Canada (where my wood pellets come from) and Brazil (where mcmeat comes from).
The sign at the entrance to our city park states, "You don't stop playing because you get old. You get old because you stop playing".
I take it your park is not in Soviet Russia?
Well there are rules unions and other legal precedents. Police officers are not "at will" employees.
However by any reasonable standard an officer who commits extreme misconduct (falsifying evidence to hide their own culpability) that officer should be fired and charged with a crime. Unfortunately an unreasonable standard has become the de-facto standard at least in many big cities (I have no idea how widespread this is)
Apparently good cops are victims as much as innocent citizens when the police force is corrupt: http://thefreethoughtproject.c...
yeah good luck with that strategy. This lady was "lucky" that:
1) she wasn't killed or fatally injured (she may have lasting permanent damage though)
2) the police were not successful in destroying her evidence. They appeared practiced. Who is to say they won't do a better job next time.
3) The police fabricated (and witnessed by other police stories) was an obvious fabrication thanks to her evidence. They accused her of trying to run over the police and had other police officers to back them up. They would have been "justified" in killing her to "defend themselves". It sickening the amount of power that corrupt police officers can have.
I have met plenty of good (or so I believed) officers, but now I am terrified of them.
yeah i didn't put magicbane in the bag of holding. I still have magicbane, but no bag of holding (full of goodies) and i'm forgetting all my spells
A nymph must have took it when i wasn't paying attention doh!
I really want to beat the game as a wizard. I'm kind of angry because I had a bag of holding with EVERYTHING, spellbooks scrolls of earth and MagicBane!, but somehow my bag disappeared and I can't even get through the tower because I'm a boulder short and no scroll of earth. Digging with my pickaxe didn't work either
O drow wizard (slashem) your quest may end here.
As far as modern games I've only played nethack and slashem (I've played rogue and moria) Crossfire too, but crossfire is so different.
I can honestly say that after over 10 years of nethacking I am not very close to winning. I love getting a ring of teleportation and eating a bunch of leprechauns and tengus to become "jumpy" though.
Wow so much unsolicited relationship advice. There certainly are some good answers about larger fans and quieter cases, but the problem of "long USB cables and long HDMI cables" causing propagation delay and lag is interesting. I have never heard of this issue before. How long are we talking? Are the cables shielded? Do you have repeaters in the picture?
Yeah in a 3 week study with 16 people on carefully controlled diets. The doesn't invalidate significant findings of studies like this one:
Ooops sorry wrong link. This one talks about risk plateau: http://nutritionfacts.org/vide...
It seems awfully unscientific to come to any kind of conclusion based on a study of 16 people over a 3 week period with engineered diets.
There is a saturated fat plateau. When you consume enough saturate fats, you cannot absorb them, but that doesn't mean it's a healthy amount to eat.
Add this to the list of misleading studies: http://nutritionfacts.org/vide...
First we should look at the past: In the past Harvard was in fact able to influence Exxons policy, by.... guess what? divestment http://www.thecrimson.com/arti...
As to whether or not stock price affects the company. It does, the company does not sell 100% of its stock. It is used as capital (can be sold) and even awarded employees with sign-on bonuses as well.
As for what the goals of the divestment campaign are, they do not appear to be stopping oil or driving oil companies out of business. This seems to be a strawman that you have created. In the first link I posted, the goals of divestment campaign in Stanford are as follows (ftfl):
"Thus our demands of the fossil fuel companies are simple. In order to show that
they are committed to a livable future, they must
Stop seeking new fossil reserves
Stop promoting climate change denial and lobbying against climate policy
Commit to keeping 80% of theirproven reserves in the ground
As long as fossil fuel companies continue with business as usual, they must be though of as an unethical industry, recklessly pushing us toward global catastrophe." (Case for Fossil Fuel Divestment at Stanford University)
With an ever-growing population and an increasing crunch for resources, climate change is possibly the most significant threat that humanity will face. If these students want to take an approach that is legal, nonviolent and proven successful in the past to try to influence major corporations in a better direction, I say more power to them.
