After you close on the house and assuming your score stays above 700 or so, apply for Chase Freedom or maybe a 2% card like Citi Double Cash. Freedom is pretty easy to get. Even if you might get approved for a better card, you really want to get a nice no annual fee card that you can keep for a long time..
However, as I rounded the corner to the first color station, it was very obvious that I wasn’t going to get through this race very clean. The first color was blue and my teammates and I ran straight through the color zone as we were doused by volunteers throwing blue color. (The color is actually like a corn starch material).
Is our ever increasing human population propelling us to our doom? Is there a limit to how many people can be sustained on a finite planet and, if so, have we already passed it?It not the first time we been presented with this doomsday scenario. More than two centuries ago, when the global population was around an estimated one billion, the British social economist Thomas Malthus issued dire warnings about the risk of population exceeding resource limits. In 1798, he advocated limiting family size and postponing marriage.
But wasn’t everybody? If, at some point, you weren’t within a shot Sunday, you must have been caddie or concessionaire. Players jammed together as if on a Tokyo subway, and the fluidity stopped only when the golf did. No fewer than eight players Schwartzel, Scott, Day, Cabrera, Woods, McIlroy, and were tied for the lead at some point, and they normally came in bunches, four or five at a time..
Was Oswald on the sixth floor?When going over this information many strange things come up, things that just don’t make sense. Some believe the mysterious “figure in the doorway” of the Book Depository was Lee Harvey Oswald. The figure in the doorway was wearing a white T shirt just like Oswald, and roughly matched his description.
Atomic bombs use fission to split the nucleus of an atom into two smaller fragments with a neutron, causing a deadly chain reaction. H bombs go the other way and use fusion to bring together two smaller atoms to form a larger one. That creates massive energy in a reaction similar to the one that takes place on the sun.
The Visitor’s Center is at about 8200 feet in altitude, and Reverend Ridge on west side of the park is around 9200 feet above sea level. At the Visitor’s Center you can get maps, ask questions of the rangers, buy firewood, get a drink, and use the restrooms (flush toilets!) Unfortunately, I didn’t see any kinds of snacks for sale or any drink vending machines, so bring plenty of food and drink with you. There are also some nice displays: topographical map of the area and information about the local wildlife (including taxidermied animals just so you’re warned.).
