DId you read the article? It discusses this interesting anomaly.

Yet the Dutch were not the first to Asia. That honor belongs to the Portuguese, who are responsible for the island of Taiwan’s colonial European name, Formosa. And the Portuguese traded not through Fujian but Macao, where chá is used. That’s why, on the map above, Portugal is a pink dot in a sea of blue.

There are plenty of ways to solve that problem that don't turn the car into an unmovable brick in the middle of a public street when a sensor fails.

No, those are guided and run separately from other traffic. I'm taking about ones that look similar but run on the airport roads with other traffic.

I guess we will never know, since that referendum will probably never be run.

It was kind of incredible seeing people interviewed on national TV and happily admitting that they couldn't understand it though. Or even worse, claiming that they understood it but that no one else did so they were voting against it.

Should have seen the warning signs back then.

We don't need computers to make elections better. What we need are term limits for congress (perhaps six years maximum, irrespective of the house of congress), an absolute prohibition of donations to elections by corporations, an extremely small limit of donations to elections (perhaps $200) by any individual in any given year, a serious reduction in lobbying, and a balanced federal budget. That's not all we need, but it's a good start.

Yes, you personally.
However rising the price of water above the price of beer ... not sure if that works.
Then again people need to flush the toilet.
And then again, last time I checked, but I might be wrong, a gallon is 2.6 liters. So in a climate like Cape Town a person needs about 3 gallons. In a random german city people already are supposed to drink about 2 gallons per day.
And then again, 1 gallon per day for $10 is $300 per month, and you have neither washed, showered or flushed the toilett for that price.

Comment Consumed water vs. recyclycable water (Score 1) 341

Water from my showers, toilet, washing, whatever, that goes down the drain goes into my city water treatment plant. From there, it is cleaned and put back in the local river. It could be further cleaned and re-used for drinking/household re-borrowing.

So household use doesn't actually USE any water from the local environment that isn't returned. I borrow it and recycle it.

Landscape use (watering plants) does, however, USE water. It evaporates and isn't really recyclable for local use.

Household water use therefore need not be a drain on water resources. Landscape use pretty much is a drain.

An anonymous reader writes: Memperkenalkan Sebuah herbal alami yang mengandung Daya pikat magis yang akan membuat suami betah berlama-lama memeluk anda.

Anda bisa menyingkirkan Jennifer Dunn atau para pelakor yang ingin merebut suami anda
( gbr : Suami memeluk istri dengan hangat )
Wahai para istri..
Apakah selama ini anda tidak percaya diri di hadapan suami karena umur anda semakin senja ?
Apakah anda sudah mulai kuatir suami tercinta bakalan melirik wanita lain hanya karena diri anda mulai atau sudah memasuki usia menopouse ?
  Apakah beberapa hari ini anda mulai tidak “peka” pada kebutuhan biologis suami, hanya karena gairah sexual anda mulai menurun?
( gambar suami istri diam-diaman dan merasa bosan)
  Apakah bathin anda sudah mulai ketakutan dan cemas berlebih karena pemberitaan di media akhir-akhir ini sangat marak dengan para pelakor atau tokoh perebut suami orang?
Apakah anda ingin organ intim, kepercayaan diri, dan Pesona kewanitaan anda kembali terpancar seperti saat anda remaja dulu?
Wahai para istriKetahuilah bahwa mekanisme ketertarikan antara pria dan wanita itu berbeda. Wanita lebih tertarik dan merasa bergairah kepada pria yang memiliki personality yang kuat. Personality atau kepribadian yang macho. Seperti bijaksana, bertutur yang pantas, punya jiwa melindungi, dan memainkan emosi pikiran kita. Tapi berbeda dengan pria. Pria lebih tertarik dan merasa bergairah pada “kondisi” fisik. Dahulu saat remaja kita sebagai perempuan ” jiwa” kita akan merasa berbunga-bunga apabila memiliki pacar seorang lelaki tampan, tinggi, dan terkenal di sekolah. Namun seiring umur bertambah.
Jiwa kita tidak lagi merasa teraduk aduk apabila memiliki pasangan hidup yang memiliki kriteria tadi. Seiring wanita bertambah umur, kita lebih merasa “berbunga-bunga” saat mendapatkan pria yang memiliki pemikiran Dewasa, confident, berjiwa melindungi , dan bijaksana.
Sementara untuk pria, jiwa ketertarikan mereka dengan lawan jenis tidak pernah berubah dari mereka remaja hingga dewasa. Tubuh mereka akan selalu tetap “bergairah” pada kondisi fisik wanita yang lewat dari matanya. Kondisi cantik, segar, manja, berbadan bagus, dan putih bersinar. Maka itu tidak heran, banyak suami-suami rela mengusir istri sah mereka walau sudah berumah tangga selama puluhan tahun. Bagi pria, daun muda lebih membuat otak dan jasmani mereka serasa di surga.
Lalu mengapa masih ada pria yang bertahan pada istri mereka walau istri sudah mulai menua keriput, dan tidak secantik dahulu ?
Tentu saja pembatasnya adalah agama, komitmen dan waktu. Pria bijak yang memiliki agama yang kuat akan selalu mempertahankan rumah tangganya. Apapun bentuk yang terjadi pada istrinya. Sementara pria bijak yang memiliki komitmen artinya pria yang benar-benar melunasi janji kelanggengan rumah tangganya karena memegang komitmen pernikanan untuk selalu bersama. Pria bijak yang memikirkan waktu adalah pria yang bukan memikirkan agama atau komitmen. Alasan yang membuatnya tetap mempertahankan rumah tangga tanpa perselingkuhan karena usia dan durasi hidup. Mereka akan berpikir percuma untuk selingkuh di usia tua karena akan sangat sia-sia. Umur sudah berapa, anak sudah berapa dan lagi harga diri menentukan itu semua. Orang yang berselingkuh tentu mempertaruhkan harga diri di mata masyarakat.
Tentu saja pernyataan diatas adalah grafik dominan. Tidak semua pria seperti itu dan tidak semua wanita menyukai pria dewasa. Kita berbicara pada skala dominan. Artinya, Mekanisme ketertarikan antara pria dan wanita selalu berbeda. Dan kita tidak bisa membantah itu semua.
Masa depan tidak bisa diprediksi begitu pula dengan

hubungan pernikahan anda kedepan



Tahukah anda, Apa yang menentukan seorang wanita tetap cantik atau cepat menua ???
Jawabannya adalah suatu hormon khusus dalam tubuh wanita yang dinamakan dengan ESTROGEN.
Estrogen atau oestrogen adalah sekelompok senyawa asteroid yang berfungsi terutama sebagai hormon seks wanita. Walaupun terdapat pada tubuh pria juga, namun kandungannya jauh lebih banyak pada wanita di usia subur. Hormon ini menyebabkan perkembangan dan mempertahankan tanda-tanda kelamin sekunder pada wanita seperti payudara dan juga terlibat dalam penebalan endometrium maupun dalam pengaturan siklus haid.
Wanita memiliki siklus biologis yang berbeda dibanding laki-laki. Perbedaan ini dipengaruhi oleh adanya hormon esensial yang ada dalam tubuh wanita yaitu estrogen. Hormon ini mempengaruhi postur tubuh wanita, kemampuan reproduksi dan menstruasi. Jika estrogen dalam tubuh seimbang akan memberikan kecantikan dan kesehatan bagi wanita.
Sebaliknya jika tubuh perempuan kekurangan estrogen akan mengakibatkan kulit mengendur, kekacauan menstruasi, lemahnya fungsi seksual, lesu, emosi berubah-rubah, tidur terganggu, vagina mengering dan penyebab masalah kewanitaan lainnya. Perubahan biologis ini biasa terjadi pada`perempuan di atas usia 35 tahun atau saat dirinya menjelang menopause.
Namun anda para wanita kini tak perlu khawatir lagi karena ada produk yang memahami kondisi perempuan menjelang menopause yaitu :
Tasly Phytosoy Margarita Plus.

"Minimal control system capable of slamming on the brakes" -- spoken like someone who's never ridden a bike. Having a bike brake itself without warning to the user would likely result in a bike crash, since the rider can't prepare their body for sudden change of force. If this is required, most cyclists would disable the damn thing the day they buy the bike. Enforcement? Please. US cities often require lights on bikes at night, and how many cyclists actually use lights?
