New To HubPages?Jump to Last Post 1 8 of 8 discussions (20 posts)Before I say my peace, I want to tell you that this forum post is not aimed at any one hubber or group of hubbers. It is aimed at every single person who comes to HubPages and who does the any of the following:After joining HubPages, there are newbies who write at least one hub, however I noticed quite a few lately who have no hubs. Get the first one written, get the experience.Then they spend considerable time combing through the feeds and forums looking for the most active hubber names to click to follow.

A 39 bed hospital in rural New Mexico was taken over by a large for profit hospital management corporation. The new CEO hired several primary care physicians, a general surgeon, and an obstetrician gynecologist to “bring back the paying customers, who were seeking care at two other facilities 60 miles to the north and east. He promised, among other things, to renovate several areas of the hospital, which was badly out of date, including the surgical suite, the obstetric suite, and the general medical floor.

But Nike, the trend setter in athletic shoe chic, is not interested in developing a commercial version of the shoe at this time. Even though Nike worked with the researchers on the project and donated 220 pairs of test sneakers to the study, it has decided not to explore the shoe’s potential development. As Nike spokeswoman Shannon Shoul explained in a statement: “This was a one off project and not something that we are currently pursuing.”.

I built mine to be adjustable and pivot like stevebod’s design but mine isn’t exactly the same. I didn’t need to make mine as sturdy as his because mine would only hold a 15lb dog, not a child. I also wanted mine to be able to be quickly attached and detached without the use of a wrench.

So, increasing education standards is all very well, but education is unlikely to be used to its full potential, if it is improved. Also, doing this costs money, something LEDC governments are very short of, partly due to the debt crisis in order to fuel development in their countries, many LEDC governments borrowed huge amounts from MEDC governments, which they are still struggling to pay back due to plans gone awry. It is also partly because they cannot collect as much tax from their deprived populations, partly because of poor economic management, and partly because they have simply not been around for so long (so have not had as much time to build up reserves).

Make sure to add fajita seasoning when they’re almost done. You can’t really go wrong. I’ll add tofu, pinto or black beans, and avocado as well.. Those who follow the blog know I have little patience for high tech marketers with questionable marketing aptitude, not to mention CEOs who are remarkably clueless about all things marketing. Of course, there are notable exceptions. There’s Steve Jobs at Apple, and, um hmm.

The husband also has problems. He wants to be accepted, as a good guy. He knows he can never replace the biological father, but still wants to make a better life for them. The worst one was the one time I got enough time off work to do the JMT. Only a few days in we realized one of our party couldn keep up so we had to get off the trail and drive him back home. That completely screwed up the schedule for resupply and we couldn work out alternative rides/trail access so it was done.

5 points submitted 1 day agoNo disrespect to Rose, but I can watch these layups without wincing. Off balance, body contorting, one legged landings, using the knees instead of the hips to absorb impact. Knowing what we know now about biomechanics, this guy was a ticking time bomb.His athleticism was world class and he juiced it for all it was worth until there was nothing left.

Once Google computes that your article is on a link farm, you might as well consider your future readership to be a big, fat zero. Whenever I have used automated backlink systems, I end up having to change the title of the article and developing a whole new URL to fix the damage I have done. Then, I am still left with promoting the article the right way.

(Dan Steinberg/Canadian Press)This just in from the world of Canadian gossip: baby faced crooner Michael Bubl has announced that he is engaged to his girlfriend, Argentine model/singer/actress Luisana Lopilato. Hear that faint tinkling? It’s the sound of the fragile hearts of Bubl loving ladies the world over, shattering into a trillion tiny crystalline shards.Though many of Bubl’s North American fans may not be familiar with his bride to be, Lopilato is a familiar face in South America, where she’s starred in a handful of popular telenovelas and was a member of the teen pop act Erreway.

I agree a lot of the stuff you say in this thread in defense of economics. I guess I was just a little annoyed that you can hand wave away the work of economists in a econ department because it is considered heterodox by the orthodox. I enjoy reading stuff from the Mercatus Center, watching those interviews with Tyler Cowen (I actually attended a few).

“I will not get inside the box society provides for everyone at birth,” Bennett tweeted. “And the box society sent for my daughter at birth we built a rocket ship out of it.”Bennett ended that series of thoughts with the hashtag “StayWokeBruh,” and he posted a link to an essay, “Dear Black Boy,” that he wrote last year for The Players’ Tribune. That came in response to police shootings of black men in Minnesota and Louisiana, and he began it by saying that the “quest for freedom continues.”.

The good news is that you can learn how to make smart dessert decisions for diabetics. With some ingredient adjustments and smart shopping, you will find that there are a variety of sweet tasting treats that can be enjoyed (with doctor’s permission, of course) even if you have diabetes. As with any indulgence, moderation and portion control is key..

PricingMost consignment sales recommend pricing your item at 1/4 to 1/3 of the original value according to quality and condition of items. In most cases, even a item that is brand new in the box will not sell for the original price. Each sale has its own pricing rules.

Really guys. It clothes. Don take it too seriously. Oh and also, not everyone has money to drop 4 figures on every modification like wheels and tires. Just because somebody doesn’t make a lot of money doesn’t mean they don’t have the right to still mod their car. Just because they have to buy lower end parts and handmedowns doesn’t mean they shouldn’t be able to.

Chalk Paint on WickerChalk paint works well on wicker, just as it does practically everywhere else. You need to make sure the wicker is clean first, however. Dirt and dust can easily be trapped in all the holes and crevices, so they need to be removed before you begin painting.

When power is supplied to the motor, it spins the weight. Because the weight is unbalanced, the motor tries to wobble. But since the motor is securely mounted inside the controller, the wobble translates into a shuddering vibration of the controller itself.

The Electronic Cigarette Association also was alerted by the FDA. It was told the devices need to go through the agency new drug application process. The first step in that process is to file an investigational new drug application, which would require manufacturers to provide data on animal studies and even human clinical trials..

I only had one 24 hour delays and it was because I was flying a budget airline (Allegiant) out of Wichita and they had to fly a spare plane in from another city. Even then, with a 24h delay you still have 10 hours to make your connection, you fine. It about an hour from Newark to Brooklyn.

When people think of the professional film and video industry in the United States they tend to only interpret it in terms of Los Angeles, with New York coming in second. Other locations also have a full film production industry that are more specific to their location and do not have the same environment and job competition as southern California. Though it is a smaller market, film production in Portland Oregon is also taking a turn up and there are a lot of production companies and feature filmmakers that call Portland their home.

That is not just a sales pitch the film used for the Zagg invisibleSHIELD was originally used to keep dust, dirt and any kind of debris from sticking to high speed helicopter blades.

Also what people don see is that in a lot of LC markers, admittedly if they do their job right, end up on far less than minimum wage for this work. They have fulfilled their contract for the year getting payed for 22 hours a week on a full timetable when any teacher actually doing the job will put in far more than that. So why the fuck should they do the marking?.

You can increase the intensity of your workout by walking over hilly terrain as you train. A walk along a flat stretch will help your heart, but it won’t work out the muscles you’ll use on the trail. While natural hills are preferable, people training for a hike in flat areas can train on stairs or an aerobic step machine.

No longer are you required to be at computer at a certain times, all because of the freedom these mobile devices provide. In fact, the impact of mobile devices in regards to this flexibility have some speculating about the death of Cyber Monday, because shoppers are no longer required to be tethered to a non mobile computing device:But the loss of Cyber Monday, which got its name when most people had to go into their offices to shop online, shows how far broadband, and now mobile, have come.In reference to the loss of Cyber Monday, Giga Om’s article offers an update:Akamai noted on Monday night that Thanksgiving evening experienced the peak traffic of the holiday season, making this the year that turkey day topped Black Friday’s and Cyber Monday’s peaks.This makes sense considering the explosive growth of smartphones.

In the past few years, we have had some really amazing, heart wrenching and horrifying post apocalyptic movies and TV shows. Movies like I Am Legend, The Road and World War Z have already gotten more than their fair share of limelight. However, it’s sad to see a movie like Stake Land not getting the attention it deserves.

Like a lot of brands in the newer retail channels, Nike helps up lift the Amazon image. For a time. The long run is a transference of the Nike ‘good will’ to Amazon. I been dealing with anxiety problems most of my life and I lived in the area my whole life. I think something that is important to think about here is how the culture acknowledges the lack of private space. People do weird shit in public here that would be socially unacceptable anywhere else, because for many people there is very little real privacy, and everyone is ok with it.

Because nitrogen is an essential component in all living cells, this meant that all plants and animals on Earth were limited by what could be recycled from waste organic material, or what could be taken up by plants from the bacteria. Humans experienced periodic famines and 19th Century scientists looked far afield for precious useable nitrogen. An entire industry was set up to harvest guano bird poo from the coastal fringes of the Atacama Desert in South America..

If your mother supports you, she can help you talk to the police. If she tells you it no big deal, (a) she wrong, and (b) you don have to discuss it with her. Call your police department non emergency number, or speak to your principal, guidance counsellor, or SRO at school.

Unlike most articles and workout routines, we will not be performing a set amount of reps for each set since our main mission is to lose flabby arms quickly. These exercises, unlike the exercises above where we used heavier weights, will be performed to exhaustion. This means you will do the exercise until you can do no more for a given set.

From a chemical point of view, plastic is basically just a chain of molecules all linked together. These chains are better known to us as polymers, and thus explains why so many plastics are known as ‘polys,’ whether it be polyester or polystyrene. Polymers themselves are derived from oxygen, nitrogen, sulfur, chlorine, fluorine, phosphorous and silicon.

There’s perhaps no single person more associated with the automobile than Henry Ford. Ford is credited with bringing the car to the masses, which transformed driving from a pastime for the rich into an integral part of daily life for millions of people. Just imagine what the world would look like without the mass adoption of the car as basic transportation: We wouldn’t have countries crisscrossed by freeways, there’d be fewer suburbs (and those that did exist would cling to the city center) and no one would ever have to be trapped in a long drive thru line at lunch (come to think of it, there wouldn’t be drive thrus at all!).

“The players are 100 percent behind him. They say it publicly and they say it privately.

One of the cardinal rules of a great slogan is that it must tell a story using the minimum number of words. Shorter slogans are easier to remember and leave a stronger impact on the mind. If they are interesting and catchy, it can bring a lot more publicity to the company because the slogan gets quoted by people in their conversations and communications.

Nah you definitely right, i agree with everything you saying. New Haven itself is Very left leaning, its more the surrounding suburbs and weird rural pockets that get some conservative force.
