"Don't be a part of the problem. We're hiring," Brown said. "Get out of the protest line and put an application in. We'll put you in your neighborhood."
Micah Xavier Johnson, 25, was killed by police after his shooting rampage Thursday night in downtown Dallas.

I don't know that I agree with equating being in a protest line as being part of the problem, but I do agree that it could be a part of the solution.

Science has created MTF-lesbian lizards. Genetically male, lays eggs, and acts all butch. 
Bearded dragon babies that are genetically male but have the physical and reproductive traits of females have hatched in a lab in Australia.

"One of the things video games do is allow a playfulness of fear and aggression, to explore in that space and be comfortable without anyone getting hurt," he said. "Certain horrors in our world we can't defeat. Death is certain. Pain is certain. Suffering is certain. We can't fight that in the real world, and yet in art we can." Controlling fear of those certainties through any kind of art is "the strongest 'fuck you' to death and suffering we're able to give."
Penn Jillette and Randy Pitchford talk misdirection, artistic escape in Vegas.

Apparently, +Google Play Store, Your send gift feature doesn't play nice with DMARC. Sending email was a google for your domain account with DMARC (slashopt.net). Target was a gmail account (gmail.com). But the signing domain was 1e100.net.

If you're a compelling and confident speaker, people assume you're good at other things too.
If you have a winning way with words, your team will be convinced you can also move mountains. Here are ways to work on that.

It is a family owned and operated place. The food was delicious, but not really in line with the prices. I didn't try the desserts, but the baklava looked amazing.

Fast service. Waited less than 30 minutes for a tow to a mechanic. Service was friendly, attention was paid to make sure the car wouldn't get damaged, and payment was quick. I highly recommend them.

Service is excellent! I normally go to the bar, and strike up conversations with other patrons. Order a Veux Carré from Ally, she has perfected them.

Service was acceptable. The food was traditional fare. The Coq au Vin was good. The bird was a little on the dry side, but the sauce was very good.
