It's not too good when it comes to being open and all. THye're mostly like "let's talk about out" when it really means "lets ignore criticism and say the world's changing without changing at all."

I actually did a short photo essay on the universal nature of the junk drawers earlier this year, if anyone is interested in it I can try to find the link.

Hopefully it works!
> the "investigation" is not linked
I imagine that they're referring to the 64-page report that's lower down on the page. It's in a stupid third-party browser thingie, but you can read it to ascertain its credibility.
> only cites one type of wood that is impacted (oak)
I did a quick search of the report, and found references to oak, pine, birch and 'precious hardwoods'.
For what it's worth, the Sierra Club is a venerable, well-respected NGO, and relatively small-c conservative in the activist community. That does not prove or disprove their claims, but it speaks to their credibility.
EDIT: Adding to the report's credibility, here's a WSJ story about it and the subsequent raid on Lumber Liquidators:
>Lumber Liquidators’ headquarters in Toano, Va., and another location in Richmond were raided last month by special agents from the Immigration and Customs Enforcement’s Homeland Security Investigations unit, together with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and the Justice Department. The agents were looking for evidence the company had imported wood products from forests in far eastern Russia that are home to the endangered Siberian tiger, a person familiar with the matter said.
Good breakdown of the US ALSA spending in 2013/2014 in their annual report
** 7% - $1.9 million - Admin **
** 14% - $3.6 million - Fundraising **
** 19% - $5.1 million - Patient Services **
** 32% - $8.2 million - Education **
** 28% - $7.2 million - Research **
I was fairly cynical about the ALSA (watched a few Youtube videos citing charitable spending as low as 7-8% which just isn't true?)
I guess the question is what do people think they are donating for - just research, or patient services, or education?

Edit 3: The caption in the newspaper under the picture says they are hearing experiments.
Yeah, and according to their financial report that accounted for only three percent of their services. You know people also go there for mammograms as well? And STD testing as well. Those are much bigger revenue makers than abortion services which not all centers provide. Plus, not all abortions are elective either.
And why would they refer to adoption agencies? There is no reason to force someone to have a child simply to give it up.
What's your source for this? It sounds suspiciously contemporary, and the only source I can find online is from a parish church's e-magazine.

Depends, LSU's manual (pg 23) states that they can work but it would depend on how much they made in comparison to other people at the market selling jelly. It's one of those things that is probably more of a headache than what it's worth.
What really bothers me about the student athlete rules is that it's the complete opposite of academic rules. Imagine telling a journalism major that they aren't allowed to write a blog or submit articles for publication or a computer science major that they can't create a website or app or face losing their scholarship.
If it doesn't seem right, question the information - who has an agenda with that story? The media want a good story obviously, her family obviously want a big impact, and Aboriginal legal services also want a big impact.
So, it would not be surprising to me that certain data would be left out and glossed over.
Here's a much better article - it sheds light on a few things, but should also be taken with a grain of salt.
Below is a link to the actual magazine. It's asking if this fraternity is like what people think fraternity's are. They have gays, blacks, Asians, Latinos, etc. in this fraternity; so I'm guessing it's a no on that one.
However not this fraternity, but I hear the Omega-Mu's are still only allowing fat unattractive girls.
This again. It's funny how these myths take off. Churchill was susceptible to pneumonia and the long cold flights weren't good for his health (none of Churchill's planes were pressurized). He would wear an oxygen mask on some occasions (even when he slept). Sometime in 1942 they did build a pressure chamber for him, but they couldn't get it into his plane without dissembling the tail section. The contraption was rejected out of hand - thus never used.

EDIT: I found an article that is pretty detailed.
EDIT 2: A pretty bad forecast of what this will be like from this blog article.
> In the three years since [the pre-market review], only two new cigarettes have been approved for sale. The anti-competitive effect this has had on the cigarette market has been my primary criticism of the FDA’s handling of tobacco. It has been reviewing applications for four years, currently has more than 150 employees working on reviews, has received approximately 4,000 applications, and has managed to rule on only 34 of them.
So it looks like there won't a lot of new mods coming out all the time.
> the manufacturers of an estimated 100,000+ different nicotine vapor products now on the market (including all nicotine containing e-liquids) would be required to submit a PMTA for each SKU...
>...the FDA’s deeming regulation estimated it would cost an average applicant just 5,000 staff hours (i.e., 2.5 full time employees working for one year) and just $333,554 to submit a PMTA.
Does this mean every eliquid flavor for each vendor would cost $333k to approve?
here's a good resource: Smart Cycling Quick Guide
and as a cyclist and a driver, as well as just a human being, I recommend empathy. Think about what the other person might be afraid of, and try not to do that. Don't crowd the squishy human when you're in a 2000 lb chunk of metal, and when you're that squishy human, do everything you can to not make drivers nervous. If the other person is being a jerk, maybe they're having a crappy day.
I'll chime in with some thoughts on King's Bounty, since I wrote a review of Armored Princess back when it came out.
Grid-based strategy/RPG series. A fair amount of backtracking involved, but battles can get enjoyably complex, and it's quite satisfying to overcome tough enemies and progress on. Don't get too attached to any of your units, though - you can't expect to be keeping them very long.
The two "primary" entries - King's Bounty and Armored Princess - are both quite long, though replay value is low. I'd recommend Armored Princess - the second title in the series - above the others, as it works out a lot (not all of, but a lot) of the clunkiness the first game has on display, while Crossworlds is a pretty weak add-on to Armored Princess, featuring a short new campaign and some relatively minor tweaks to Armored Princess.
That said, if you want a lot of Heroes of Might and Magic style gameplay - perhaps to tide you over until HoM&M 6 - you wouldn't be remiss to pick up all three titles for all of $7.

These things are very case-by-case. The level of punishment really depends on your character, the nature of the offence, any past offences, level of compliance with the university and so on. You're gonna have to do some research on your own to figure out how deep the shit goes in your situation, since we can't know all of the facts and context for your particular case.

“If you think tourists are going to be excited about even the possibility that their wives, daughters and girlfriends will be sharing a bathroom with a guy who decides he’s ‘transgender’ just to have a little fun (or worse) at the ladies’ expense, you don’t know tourists and you don’t know sex offenders,” the newspaper ad reads.

Not precisely Bronzeville, but I did my masters project on the changes in North Kenwood and Oakland just to the east. A lot of factors led to their decline, disinvestment in schools and neighborhood institutions by the city, loss of jobs from the stockyards closing, declining access to public transit, clustering of lots of public housing in one area with no access to jobs, and stagnant wages throughout the 1960s-1990s to name just a few.
The area has been on the rebound recently, but it'll be a while before it's as vibrant as it used to be, if ever. Not to mention, most of the recent developments haven't seemed to be to the benefit of existing residents.
Here's my report, if you want to look it through.

For a bootstrapped startup that's probably a pretty extreme price.
For a functioning business, $7k is a bargain for the basis of your brand. I can only assume that his $7k price also includes a style guide as well.
It takes a good bit of time to build a true corporate identity. You need a refined color palette, a typeface and a logo mark. You need a governance system (the style guide) that tells you and future vendors how to build things that fit your identity. When to use what color and why. What size and weight headlines and body copy should be set in. Alternate versions of the logo for various placements. Rules on what not to do to the logo. Some guidance on overall voice and tone. Guidance on photography styles and it's usage. An icon library and rules on when and how to use them. Everything has to be thought out and rationalized.
Here's the Skype Brand Book
Here's one for a smaller brand
Really good list of style guide examples
These are dozens of pages with extremely in depth rule systems governing what happens and why. This level of rigor and quality is expensive.
TL;DR It depends on how much rigor you want applied to the foundation of your brand.
Using simple math, a normal bill rate for a talented, experienced designer is ~$70/hr. $7,000k is 100 hours. That's two and half weeks of full time work. That's about how long it takes to do all the research, the design work itself and a comprehensive style guide.
For reference, the agency I work at bills out Senior Designers between $175-225/hr depending on the specifics of the account and the overhead cost of the designer. Getting that same designer to freelance for you at $70/hr is a great deal.
There is some confusion below about propulsion. This is likely a CH-3 UCAV.

Mitä helvettiä voidaan tehdä kun iso yritys päättää että rikos kannattaa? Tämähän on laskelmoitu teko, jätkät kun huomasivat että myynti kasvoi helvetin 50% kun rupesivat meuhkaamaan rasismia vastaan (ks. Finlaysonin vastuullisuuskatsaus, jossa toki myös väitetään ettei Finlayson hyväksy syrjintää missään muodossa). Nyt sitten ajattelevat että tällä linjalla jatkaminen vaatii lisää räikeitä tekoja joita tarvittaessa taiotaan vaikka tyhjästä, ettei tulot vaan laske aiemmalle tasolle.
Uskoisin että Finlaysonin pomo VALEHTELEE ja mitään kampanjaa ei oikeasti aiota tehdä, väitetään vaan että aiottaisiin. Tällöin mitään laitonta ei tapahdu mutta saadaan hirveästi ilmaista näkyvyyttä, ja sitten vielä feministiragea kun kampanja joudutaan "peruuttamaan" miesten kitinän takia. Ja myynti käy, kun feministit osoittavat tukensa Finlaysonille ostamalla lisää turhia tekstiilejä.
Raivostuttavaa paskaa. Todella raivostuttavaa paskaa. Ei jumalauta kuulu sivistysvaltion kulttuuriin julkisesti uhata jotain ihmisryhmää rikoksella, vielä vähemmän se kuuluu oikeusvaltion yrityskulttuuriin!!!
MITÄ TÄLLE KUSIPÄÄFIRMALLE VOITAISIIN TEHDÄ?
No. But impaired judgement while tripping could put you in harms way (or even result in death, i'm sure its happened before). It doesn't seem to be the case here but the media love jumping on the party drug bandwagon and i doubt you would ever see a correction or toxicology report.
Interesting fact: Adriana Buccianti has attended Rainbow Serpent 3 times now and has completely changed her mind about the event. She said it was initial grief that made her say the things she did, which is pretty understandable.

Everyone, from Congress to the conservative media wing is really, really overreaching, even when they present the actual numbers to the public. According to this foxnews.com feature article, PP spent $520K on the president's salary, $622k on work parties, and $5.1M on travel. But set those numbers against the actual revenue ($1.5 billion), and you come up with these numbers:
PP President's salary: .03% of total budget
Travel Expenses: .34%
Also, check out Page 5 of their 2012 annual report to see what percentage of their services are abortions themselves:

Warlock speaks a vastly different language. There's actually an Ozhkavosh dictionary made by the Valve devs, though it's a little out of date.
I had created an updated version for D2Mag when that was still happening, but I can't find the link at the moment.
Edit: Here's the link to the magazine. The article I wrote was made after Terrorblade was added to the game, and I don't think there have been any other additions that make it out of date. Of note is the fact that Legion Commander also speaks Ozhkavosh when equipped with the Arcana.

I know the "cool" is meant as a sort of sarcastic approach but the Iranians, Russians, Chinese, Indians, south Koreans and Turks are pursuing their own "cool" Stealth technologies. Which makes your attempt here even more confusing.

I'd personally love if there was a "paper" of sorts that was comprised by select members of the sub that are regular posters in order to discuss matters in a more organised fashion so that ideas can actually be expressed without resorting to calling eachother liberal shits and suffering at the hands of the voting system. I've grown fond of the idea ever since I started taking part in that mock parliament /r/MHOC - we even have our own publication there.
Of course that wont happen and I wouldn't expect it to happen, we're a forum not a Party.

I'm a huge supporter of PP, donate to them regularly, and personally wouldn't care if abortions were all they did; but I wish they had something better than the oft-cited 3% statistic because it's pretty obviously intended to understate the truth. All the anti-choice people know it, and it makes it easy for them to dismiss anything PP says.
According to their 2014 annual report, PP served 2.7 million clients in 2013 and performed 327,653 abortions. Saying 12.1% of their patients received abortions sounds a lot more honest, and it still demonstrates that abortions are just a fraction of what they do.
this is such click bait. Even the title in full caps...

At first I was very cautious but I needed shots I wanted and forgot about the fear and I was going up and down the bridge, with a 24-105 mm lens, shooting (1. F it). They thus could easily spot me and they did as you can see in the series (4.) and I like those particular ones - but they were busy getting across safely (2.) which pushed me into reacting quickly (3.).

Daikatana wasn't even that bad. It was mediocre, and had some questionable design decisions, but it was not a totally awful game. I think a lot of the backlash came from that very "John Romero is going to make you his bitch" campaign. If it had been released quietly without the ridiculous hype, it would probably be considered a flawed cult classic these days similar to the original Shadow Warrior or something. As well, in this interview with Romero, he cites that ad as one of his biggest mistakes throughout his career.
I'm not sure I completely agree with you. That's probably because I haven't met a lot of people who are against abortion but also supportive of Planned Parenthood's services. I don't doubt that they exist.
What I do see and hear is a vocal population willing to defund an organization because of a service they disagree with that counts for a very small portion of services actually rendered. (3% of Planned Parenthood's services were abortions [to put that into perspective that's 328,000 abortions out of 10.6 million services provided] This figure is taken from the Planned Parenthood 2013-2014 Annual Report, that's just services not patients some organizations have estimated that 12% of patients come to Planned Parenthood for abortion services.) Link
The public funds that Planned Parenthood receives (around 40% of its annual budget, again taken from their annual report) come from Medicaid (targeted at lower income individuals) and Title X (which is a federal family planning program that also serves lower income families). Title X money specifically comes with the limitation that it not be spent on abortions and Medicaid money, while it does allow for abortions, is tightly restricted. (Please see the Hyde Amendment of 1977)[[link]]
Any elective abortions that PP provides do not come from public money.
I appreciate your viewpoint, but I just don't see these protests and the defunding of Planned Parenthood as something that is really coming from a constructive place. I see too many important services for already under served communities getting caught in the crossfire.
Anyone at NUIG in 2010? There was two articles published in the SIN (student newspaper), the first called How to get the Shift and the second How to get from The Shift the to the Ride Sin Volume 12 Issue 2 page 7 (there is even a letter from me in that issue! Pure coincidence).
Anyway, the article was artocious, demeaning and generally horrid. It launched a shitstorm at NUIG. IIRC, there were calls to shut down the paper. The following issue (page 5) had a letter from a load of the professors calling the article "sexist and mysoginistic" and criticised the editors.
I can see why people would think there was rape implied in the above, and I wouldn't be surprised to see similar blowback on it publication.

Going to take a stab at this since I am studying for my accounting designation and just took a quick look at the 2015 financials. Obviously a lot could have changed since these were released but I can highlight a few things.
Also this financial report didn't have a cash flow statement which will be more helpful with the analysis.
I can highlight a few points.
Also take this lightly but 1) there were no cash flow statements so I couldn't analyze 2) I didn't look at any other football team financials, maybe the high debt thing is completely normal. You can only compare within industries. 3) If someone else wants to analyze this, the annual reports are here
Drastic changes to colouring in reprinted books. Flex Mentallo and Miracleman trade paperbacks both swapped warm, primary colours for dull "realistic" tones which make the books more indistinct.

Since we're passing out information... Here is a link to one man's huge collection of rare & out-of-print books, most of which is occult, hermetic, edge-science, mystical-- seriously all kinds of things-- in nature. Painstakingly photographed so all is very easily accessible.
Hope it's useful for someone; I've been enjoying the heck out of it for years ;)
Please, it's clear that this is a joke. This is how they describe the book
"What if sexuality is not static? What if all women can find their inner dyke? Then only a lunatic would continue to live with men in an unequal society. Or? [...] With a great sense of humor Mian Lodalen and Matilda Tudor argues about all the benefits of a new life as a lesbian, such as career advancement, more money in your wallet, better sex life and better health. Here you also get the obvious answers to why you want your daughter and grandmother becomes a lesbian, and why even the state would benefit from an increasing number of switches on. "
I have not read the book, but I’m very familiar with the work of some the people involved, like Liv Strömqvist and Nour El Refai, and I am almost one hundred percent sure that this is mostly a joke.
Edit: I have now read the beginning of the book and can confirm that it is a joke. For all you Swedish speakers out there here you have the first 15 pages so you can judge for yourselves
There's an article in the March issue of Northwest Runner about some of my friends and teammates running through their pregnancies. Very telling and inspiring. Here's the issue.
In the April one (I can link you to that too if you want), there's a follow-up where they talk about their returns from pregnancy.
I'm downvoting you because I've worked there, and that's bound to be close.
The amount of good this HOSPITAL does, as it's not just a faceless foundation, and the good that family(Stollery) has done for children across NORTH AMERICA is unbelievable.
We've performed many, many miraculous feats there, and saved so many children, and it's campaigns like this one that help, every single time.
How dare you.
Look at last years report here and look at the amount spent on administration, just over $2 million.
There are 16 members on the board alone, and I'm certain they have OVER 50 staff, but under 100. You must keep in mind supplies and operating costs come out of that budget as well, so I don't think in anyway that people are getting rich quickly from the SCHF.
Here's an even better snapshot of them
Could they be better? Yes, but considering the board members they have, and what competetive salaries are for those persons, it's perfectly within line. I'm not saying those people deserve high wages, and that the charity couldn't be better, but calling them a sham operation ignores the amazing things this charity has accomplished.
I'm having a hard time finding screenshots of events of the olympics, unfortunately. But here's a quick example of that is how Skype does it. They've put out one of the most beautiful brand books I've seen:
See how they don't just leave things up to chance with their imagery? They will never hire someone who will say "why don't we mix things up and start using jagged vector elements with neon colors! that's what my taste dictates!" Nope, the brand has specifications which don't allow for that. Consistency in that regard helps connect with your audience and makes all of your materials feel like a complete and cohesive package.
This was already tried. Back in 2009/2010, there was a group of students trying to start a "Dominatrix and Fetish Club" on campus.

Already the majority of kills are BVR and about 5% are guns.
> being able to win in a turning fight is going to be important
Turning fights are starting to become irrelevant. If you get close enough to be in one with a modern fighter, the odds are that you will both die. From the report I link.
> Once both aircraft have “launch and leave” missiles in the air, prospects are good that the short-range engagement will result in “mutual kills,” with short-range combat kill ratios near 1:1. This suggests we may have reached a point in the development of short-range air combat technologies where serious, capable adversaries will attempt to avoid it and instead seek advantage in superior BVR capabilities.
since the discussion below kinda goes into the same direction I'm gonna post it here: I designed a dota magazine because I was hyped for ESL One in June last year with an article about exactly that issue:
I like the idea of a wealth tax, but I don't think it is feasible. How do you tax someone on, say a house. Do you make them take out a mortgage to pay for it? Do you take 1% of the house away (which the state doesn't really want) each year until it is sold and then take that proportion of the sale? How do you decide on the value of the wealth in the first place (this is a particular problem with the way we band council tax).
This sounds like it is set up for massive loopholes.
Here is the briefing for those who want to read it: [link] (it does not explain how it will work).
While I agree that the US is heading towards a kind of fascism, "corporatism" is not what you think it means. Corporatocracy is a better word
>Corporatism, also known as corporativism, is a system of economic, political, or social organization that involves division of the people of society into corporate groups, such as agricultural, business, ethnic, labor, military, patronage, or scientific affiliations, on the basis of common interests
Also, this rising fascism is not so much a direct result of corporate lobbying. Fascism has a very specific definition and it coming about through corporate lobbying is excluded from it. Fascism must be a populist movement. The Tea Party on the other hand is a definite fascist movement.
I wrote an article about it a few weeks back that I think explains it reasonably well, give it a look. It's on page 12 "A spectre is haunting America"

My main issue with your view is that it doesn't address why immigration is bad for the country that is accepting them?
Immigration is good for the country that the immigrants are entering.
Here is a study by Micheal Clemens on the subject
It is relatively short and easy to read so I do hope that you take the time to at least skim it.
And even the most skeptical of immigration economists agree that immigrants entering a country is good for said country.
But I'll give an even shorter version. Immigrants entering your country work, as you said they want wealth like everyone else. And people working is inherently good for the rest of the country, the idea that "they took our jobs" is incorrect. The economy is not a zero sum game and with each new person working will add to the overall economy and create as much "work" as they take and create more wealth than they use. And more people entering the economy increases the division of labor which allows for more efficiency among all workers.
And on your theory that immigration is allowing ISIS to come into Europe is also just false and silly. ISIS has plenty of money. If ISIS wants they can easily send someone out of the country and fly them over after sending them to Turkey. They don't need to take refugee boats, instead they can legally get Visa's.
I wasn't aware of Greenpeace being a political party in the UK, but I'll assume you mean the Green Party, who have many sensible policies.
Ambos possuem um posicionamento quanto a direitos humanos muito bom...
Vamos comparar o programa econômico dos 2:
O programa do EJ não é um festival de ataques e criticas ao sistema atual. Apenas uma lista concisa de ideias claras de como melhorar.
Foco cientifico na questão econômica, propõe indicadores e metas claras em vez de entupir de retórica.
Não propõe nenhuma mudança brusca e radical, economia é um processo realimentado, mudanças bruscas tendem a quebrar tudo.
Me parece claro que ambos são bem intencionados, mas o PSOL parece ser muito infantil, descrevendo um Brasil cheio de super vilões e heróis.
O PV soa como uma análise mais realista e equilibrada sem hipérboles inúteis que só servem de propaganda.
Right... can you define "tit-raping," please? If your milk comes from a place where farmers are rubbing cow udders on their penises, you should probably report that to the USDA.
One of the places I get my milk from is Organic Valley, a farming coop and national distributor of organic dairy products. Here's how they treat their animals, but to save you the click I'll excerpt:
- Require preventative health care practices such as adequate feed, nutritional supplements, sanitary housing and freedom of movement.
- Prohibit withholding medical treatment in cases of animal illness.
- Require access to outdoors and calls for conditions that accommodate the natural behavior of the animal.
- Require appropriate clean and dry bedding.
They use no hormones, accept less milk per cow per day to reduce stress on the animals, and all of the farms participating agree to adhere to a set of standards more strict than those necessary for USDA organic certification (which they also adhere to).
Here's there most recent sustainability report, if you'd like to know more about their efforts.
What part of that is "tit-raping" the cows, and how on earth can anyone say that they "have no reason to think the more expensive milk is is any better"?
Not yet, it'll be in the print version for another few weeks, then we'll put it online. I'll you send you a message when it pops up.
Edit: To anyone who has asked, I will indeed send you the link when it comes online.
Edit 2: Here it is - go to page 5.
I love my class ring! I got a high school and college one, but I really wanted a traditional ("men's style" I guess) class ring, which is what I think you don't want. Haha.
Regardless, both my college and my high school used Balfour and they offered a lot of different options. Not sure if you can (or if you would even want to) order from them individuall, but there's some ideas there at least. :)
I believe this page will connect you to the organization that provided the certification both Ragen and Jeanette have obtained as fitness "professionals."
Yes, it NAAFA.

Abortions are only 3% of planned parenthood's business.
Hypothetically, if 3% of the money donated to PP went to abortions that would mean $2,482.97 would go to abortions. The average abortion costs whomever is getting one $451.. (I couldn't find any info on how much it costs PP per abortion.. I'm assuming it's significantly higher than $451) that means that 5 abortions would be covered.
Abortions are the woman's choice. It's their right. Whether you believe in them or not that's your own choice.
Seriously, read the annual report for the 2013-2014 year. Here's a link: Annual Report
Article says he was making a few thousand a week last year.
They don't seem to define what "made" means (it could count all round trips without netting out losses) but it is near zero probability that this kid has earned (reported to IRS) and paid taxes on $72 million.
I actually saw on their online magazine they sent me via email here that they are opening a bunch of new Mecca Maxima stores and they are bringing out a new website and access to "100+ global brands". I'd love to know what they are.
I kinda disagree with you, I think Adore is being rather honest about her relationship with Laganja. She said in this interview that their relationship is awkward and she gives even more insight in this interview. Besides, she was just poking fun, literally everyone has poked fun at Laganja this season and Adore even shared her music video.
Also, I love Willam to pieces, but he's no angel even in this DWV thing.
Leklust, here's the catalogue.
Er EkstraBladet nu begyndt at genudgive 'en skør skør verden' i serialiseret format? Hold nu op med det zombie-pis. Der er en masse mennesker der lider forfærdeligt, og den joke var sgu ikke engang sjov første gang nogen fyrede den af.
The Mugshot is on page 5, in my experience they usually lead with the charge that caused the issues, whch is as seen there Indecent exposure, THEN disorderly conduct THEN resisting arrest. that took 2 minuites to find. so yes the police corroborate it.
So there are a few things here.
First, it doesn't really do a lot of "cancer screenings" - At least in terms of mammograms. And many of the breast exams are things women could do on their own.
Second, while it's true that none of the money goes to abortions, strictly speaking, the fact is that the government is still subsidizing probably one of the biggest, if not the biggest, abortion providers in the US. The very simple argument is that were it not for those funds, PP could not offer the abortions they do at the costs they do.
Third, with the ACA, not only is healthcare supposedly more accessible for everyone, particularly those in low-income households, it also MANDATES women's health coverage, for everyone. And there are thousands of other local clinics for women to go to that DO provide reproductive services, and mammography. So PP is far from the only option.
Last, PP certainly has some shady practices. Say what you want about the videos, if you still don't question anything at all after that, I don't know what to say. There's also the fact that they report $5 million in travel expenses annually and a $520000 salary for their president. And with over $1B in assets you do have to ask WHY they need all $400M+ of taxpayer dollars.
They're not just promising increases in spending, some of the changes are radical.
Ya, the figures are available, insofar as an opposition party has the ability to calculate them. The plan is costed, you can see the details in the link.
Should also be borne in mind when talking about costing proposals, that the current government has proven incapable of accurately estimating the budget for the HSE and had to give hundreds of millions to it each year to supplement its budget.

We will also have a "Cyber Monday" sale, available online only.
The more i look into this guy, the more weird shit i seem to be finding.
In april 2013 Nayem sets up a new a new tv web project with fellow journalists (Including Roman Skrypin from Radio Free Europe) called Hromadske.TV In july of 2013 the project receives funding from George Soros related NGO called IRF. In august 2013 the project receives funding from the US embassy in kiev. In december 2013 it receives circa $100.000 from the dutch embassy in kiev.
2013 financial statement Hromadske.TV
The first day that Hromadske.TV started airing was the same day that the Yanukovych government decreed that is was suspending preperations for signing the EU association agreement.
The same day of the famous Nayem tweet to Get ready.
A year later he shares the stage in Washington with Victoria Nuland and receives a prestigious award from the Wilson Center, a highly recognised US think tank.
Since the last election he sits in the rada as a member of Poroshenko's party.
Anyone has any further ideas on this ?
With TUSK-1 you've got the M19 Abrams Reactive Armor Tiles, and for TUSK-2 you got the M32 ARAT-2. I could be wrong, but I think the M32 is just an M19 brick with cassettes used to deflect blast upwards or down to allow it to be used closer to infantry around the tank.
Here's an online magazine that covers American ERA with some info about both BRAT and ARAT. It's not much, but it should get you started.
BRISBANE FESTIVAL IS A MAJOR INTERNATIONAL ARTS FESTIVAL THAT EXPLODES ONTO THE SCENE EVERY SEPTEMBER WITH A THRILLING PROGRAM OF MUSIC, THEATRE, DANCE, OPERA, CIRCUS AND MAJOR PUBLIC EVENTS SUCH AS SUNSUPER RIVERFIRE.
Brisbane Festival attracts an audience of around one million people every year. (Copied and paste from their website) It looks to go for about 20 days... and here is a link to the program [link]
I'm not employed by the City of Edmonton, and I was in a public area working as a freelance photographer. You might not like it, and I'm not asking you to, but sometimes I have to do what I have to earn an income.
More importantly, the officer was not in any danger. He was there to keep people from going past him. He was not focused on the house. Additionally, if you read my entire comment, you'd have read that we were not in any danger. We were not in line of sight of the home. There were 3 houses and several cars between it and us. We used the garage as cover as a simple precaution. We were also in that position for only approximately 5 minutes before we left to a much more secured area.
You're overthinking a situation that you were not in attendance for. It's easy to armchair quarterback it, but you of all people should know that without being there and knowing the exact circumstances then you have no business judging someone's actions.
Edit: As further "proof" (I guess you can call it that) that I was there covering a story, look at the front page of the Edmonton Metro this morning. I'll even link the digitized copy of their print edition here. Image looks familiar, huh?
Here's an interview Miki Dezaki did a couple months after he put up the video. He talks about some of the fallout and negative reactions he got, in addition to his reasoning and whatnot.
I doubt its authenticity. At least the perfect part. AUA seems to use the term loosely for anyone who scores in the 99th percentile.
I searched "AUA step 1 perfect score" and came across this which speaks of an AUA valedictorian scoring the "highest scores possible on the USMLE Step 1 and Step 2 exams." Searching her name takes me to this article which says she "scored a double 99 percent on the USMLE exams."
I did some doxing, matched her to an account on USMLE study sites, it looks like she scored around 260 on step 1.
That's the only references I found online, besides this, which leads me to a few others with high scores, but no true perfects.
Just to be clear - I'm not really attacking your wording, anyway. I read the article - it's the writer of the original article who pretty much said that outright. You're just posting it.
Page 6 of this: [link]
Regarding my source... I honestly don't know much more about it than that. Additionally, you could probably listen to some of the military chatter from the day from somewhere in the mid-end of the ATC tapes maybe here right around 24:30?. And of course, there's the official government report regarding 93.
Basically, the way I understand it, there's no way unarmed pilots would have been sent up with specific orders to bring down planes. They were more interested in checking them out, and then eventually as the morning goes on and after 93 went down, they finally get unofficial but conflicting authorization from the commander via the Vice President that they are cleared to bring down unresponsive aircraft. All of the attacking crafts were down by then, though. I'm especially skeptical because the background talk in the recordings seems to indicate that Langley had scrambled fighters but Washington wasn't taking it seriously yet. So it's weird to think that Andrews would be launching fighters to do anything more than to make contact with and intercept planes for ID purposes.
Washington Center operations manager (regarding 93, which he didn't know at the time) around 28:00 in that video communicates that they were directing people to "look out for limited codes, primary targets, whatever the case may be" but not that they were authorized to take down anybody.
So that's where I'm at with this. On one hand, I want to believe in the heroism of this story, and the fact that the Washington Post printed it is really saying something... but also it just seems a little fishy.
$29.1MM in revenue
32% ($8.5MM) to public and professional education
27% ($7.2MM) to research
19% ($5.1MM) to patient and community expenses
14% ($3.6MM) to fundraising
7% ($1.9MM) to administrative expenses
I again point you to the actual arrest mugshot here, which although has ALSO disorderly conduct and resisting arrest, the first reason posted, which usually is the original reason is Indescent exposure. Also resisting arrest usually happens during arrest so was allready.
Issuu.com is a great site for upping web magazines. Just upload a PDF and it makes it into a fancy little embeddable magazine!
Edit I'm also going to take this opportunity to volunteer my services as a designer! Here are a couple of examples of my past work, for reference (and also as examples of how Issuu works).
Bob's Chili? They seemed to have introduced it as Bob's Chili, but just listed it as "dark chili burnished" after that from what I've seen. Even in their 2014 Holiday Guide, they used both names.
While you might get one, expect a rack on the Cook.
Read this Welcome Aboard guide specicially page 25.
Edit: You asked the same thing 26 days ago and stop doing dumb shit like this
I tried writing a JoJo Magical Girl-style game called Mahou ShoJo^2. In the end I figured I am bad at rules and only okay at doing layouts. If anyone wants to create a jojo rpg, we should try to create a group for such a thing.
sample of my attempt from a few months ago.
I have a rough idea for a newer system, using 'stars' to represent 'capability', but I need a math person to smooth it out.

That's not true at all.
This is over simplified, but ...
Total revenues: $1.146B
Total expenses: $1.055B
PP received $528.4MM in grants and other government funding. Remove that and PP would've lost about $500MM per their last financial report.
Thank you for doing this AMA.
First and foremost, I would like to know why you attempted to delete your previous AMA.
Furthermore, your campaign platform/mandate is very similar to that of former President Courtney Akuyawa, namely improving accessibility in terms of social equity and mental health on campus. Do you feel these issues were addressed inadequately in the past?
What would you say is SSMU's greatest weakness? Do you think this can be addressed and rectified under your leadership?
Can you answer as to why McGill students are required to pay $12.00 to the Daily Publications Society (McGill Daily and Le Délit)? In their publically available financials (page 11), the DPS has about CAD 241000 in investments. At the same time, about CAD 295000 is collected from student fees, leaving the DPS in about CAD 8500 in excess of revenues over expenses. Do you think it is right that all students are asked to pay fees for a publication that most do not read or contribute to, especially when that publication’s need for revenue from fees is questionable at best?
~~5. Finally, I (and other users of /r/mcgill) would like to know if this will be the only AMA you will do. As /u/Da_Fino mentioned, this sub is rather inactive in the summer, so I think it is expected that you conduct another AMA, perhaps in the first week of classes.~~ This question has been answered
Probably not as accepting as Cornell or something, but 4 / 5 stars according to last year's CampusPride reviews (tied with W&M for 2nd in VA as I recall, UR was #1).
VT is not a southern school by any stretch of the imagination. Culturally I'd say we are closer to us to be culturally more like a Maryland, Rugers, or Ohio State (with the bro level turned down a bit), than Tennessee or NC State. We're not in New England, but definitely not in the South.
Also check out the student run LGBT magazine: The Interloper, and of course the University's LGBT Alliance.
