OK, so maybe opossoms aren't that bothersome after all.
 
Opossums could hold the key to saving snakebite victims.  Scientists have known since the 1940s that Virginia opossums possess some level of immunity to snake venom, but now the scientists have isolated the compound responsible for the opossum’s superpower. Experiments with mice have shown that the compound in the marsupial’s blood can neutralize venom. The molecule worked against several venomous snake species including rattlesnakes and viper venom. Scientists believe that the substance could be mass produced to create an inexpensive and universal anti-venom – 94,000 people die each year from snakebites. 

"The mice that were given the venom incubated with the peptide never showed any signs [of being sick]," says Claire Komives, a professor of chemical engineering at San Jose State University in California. "It was like a miracle, that this peptide really has this activity."

Sitting in heavy traffic, this afternoon, I looked into the rear view mirror and saw this.  I wondered if, while the driver is probably licensed, his tags are current.

No colors, but some of the stripes appear to be counter rotating....probably a factor of the refresh rate of this monitor.

Hmmmmm....
 
Under existing U.S. Tax code (in place for over half a century) any Church engaged in political activism must lose its 401c tax-free status. It's already the law. Enforce the damn law.

For those preparing for the Shōnin Anomaly, here are the recommended inventory guidelines to arrive with (2 sources):

"If  you are not level 8, substitute your max level for any L8 references
Bursters: 600-800 L8 
Resonators:
300 L8 
300 L7 
250 L6
175 L5
20 L4 res (solo deploy only)
Cubes: 75 L8
Mods - As many rare & very rare shields as you can get
Viruses - As many Jarvis / ADA as you can get"
_____________________________
The local recommendation (Southern California region) appears to be slightly adjusted from the above, if not more succinct:

"MINIMUM LOADOUT
250 - L7 & L8 resonators
200 - L6 resonators
800 - L8 xmps
150 - L8 US
200 - L8 cubes
as many R+ shields as you can get"
______________________________

In the spirit of the game, don't let inventory count deter you from joining us and having a great time.

Found this video quite by accident and enjoyed the comprehensive detail you went to in covering this device. Having a problem with my current SGS2 (no data connection), I'm sorely tempted to take it in to T-Mo, and trade it in on a SGN3.

I bought one used a while ago (don't want to lose my grandfathered unlimited data plan). I really like the feel and the functionality of the pen, but I hate that the phone won't fit in most of my pockets.

...and this conference is less than 20 miles from where I live.
 
Vertical tails are so not cool any more. Birds never had them and planes may soon stand to lose them as well.
NASA Dryden's Al Bowers will outline how student researchers proved Ludwig Prandtl's theory that adverse yaw can be overcome without rudders.

A man whom I consider to be a friend within the Open Source community is forging-ahead with an effort called Reglue, despite his being treated for cancer.  I applaud his motives, actions and successes in bridging the digital for the disadvantaged in his area.

I ask you to take a moment to look over his efforts, and ask yourself if contributing to this project would be the correct thing for you to do at this time.  No sales pitch, no begging.  Just take a look and decide if you can help.

Thanks,

Allan
