The U.N.'s evidence doesn't look any better for the Assad regime when it comes to the munition's rocket motor. This portion of the munition may represent a 122mm artillery rocket (though a separate impact site has a motor that the U.N. identifies as part of a 140mm artillery rocket) modified with multiple large, fixed stabilizer fins and reinforced with a tail ring. These large fins give aerodynamic balance to the munition's heavy and clumsy front end. Because the stabilizer ring is permanently affixed to the munition's rear section, the modified rocket would no longer fit into whatever launcher tube it was originally associated with. The motor portion and the weapon would have to have a new launcher of approximately 36 centimeters in diameter; this might be made from scratch, or the ring and warhead might have been designed to the particular diameter of an existing rocket launcher.

"By choice she did not emphasize her feminine qualities. Though her features were strong, she was not unattractive and might have been quite stunning had she taken even a mild interest in clothes. This she did not. There was never lipstick to contrast with her straight black hair, while at the age of thirty-one her dresses showed all the imagination of English blue-stocking adolescents.

The practices uncovered in the report are an affront to anyone who believes in a market economy. Vigorous competition is essential for a robust economy. It promotes innovation and brings discipline to inefficient producers.

Ironically, the business interests that take greatest advantage of federal favors are often the ones that protest most strongly against government investment in alternative energy.

When Dad arrived home from work in the evening, I’d jump in the car and he’d take me to football training. We wouldn’t get back until 10pm, so it was a long day for him. The first thing I did when I went professional was to look after my parents after all they’d done for me. Dad was only 64 when he died earlier this year from Alzheimer’s and Mum’s not long had a stroke, so it’s really hit home how much they’ve sacrificed for us boys.

Monetary policy continues to be tight with the central bank last week raising the cash reserve requirement on public sector deposits to 50% effective 7 August 2013. Previously there was a 12% requirement on all customer deposits. The revision applies to around NGN1.3trillion (USD8bn) of deposits and means that NGN500bn of additional liquidity could be withdrawn. We expect banks to fill any funding short-fall with more expensive sources or by selling liquid assets, leading to a sharp negative impact on net interest margins.

A good few years back I was travelling across the States with some pals. We’d stayed overnight on a campsite near Memphis. As we were driving off in the morning, a peculiar sound came from under the bonnet (or should that be hood?) of our car. Within seconds, the chap from the trailer next to us appeared offering to help. “I’m a mechanic,” he said. “My wife will fix y’all some pancakes while I adjust your powersteering belt!” The car was mended in about fifteen minutes, but we stayed for a good couple of hours, chatting with these friendly strangers over breakfast and jugs of coffee. To this day, breakfast pancakes always remind me of their kindness.

Poulter, meanwhile, will grab his usual wheelbarrow of optimism and rightly, too. He popped in his Ryder Cup eyes when the going got tough and produced exactly when he had to. It was another plus point for British golf in addition to 18-year-old Matt Fitzpatrick lifting the Silver Medal honours as top amateur.
That, potentially, lays open a whole new front: Microsoft has suffered in recent years because of the diminishing importance of Windows in the face of Android and Apple’s iOS. Just as the dominance of tablets usurped Microsoft and challenged its most pivotal product, so Samsung is betting that, long term, we will be wearing more and more of the technology it seeks to sell consumers.

@brotherkenny4: Yes – you have good comments about the “free” market, but you need to remember, each of those constraints you list was imposed on the government BY ITSELF. The latest example is Dodd-Frank where the government has committed itself to back the big banks, and charge the small banks for it. In return politicians can demand ‘election’ fundraising (please remember that election funds are the personal property of the politician once he leaves office) or unreadable ‘regulations’ will be enforced. The alternative to it is not ‘small’ government, but accountable government – with a particular functions so it can be held accountable. The reason for ever increasing government is often to make sure it is too complicated to be held accountable, not really to get a job done.
The deal marks a breakthrough for Brussels' free-trade agenda, which had previously achieved smaller agreements with South Korea and Singapore.

I said this should have happened as soon as we heard too big to fail come out of anyone’s mouth. If it is too big to allow to fail, it has become a national security issue. This should not exist in Capitalism, we are supposed to prevent monopolistic practices. The government has ignored one of the key components of Adam Smith’s establishments of capitalism and that is monopolies.

Jesse Cox, a 15-year-old student at Bristol Central High, likes to fish from a clearing in the woods on the banks of Pine Lake most days. He caught a four-pound bass recently, and returned to the 54-acre manmade lake on July 30. He was not alone. Along the shoreline, six onlookers watched as five members of the Connecticut State Police Dive Team descended upon the water. The men wore full-body scuba suits, affixed lights to their masks and carried yellow oxygen tanks on their backs. One by one, the divers searched the murky water. Metal detectors were employed to help combat poor visibility.

Before we turn to a review of expenses for the quarter, I'll provide a quick update on the all-access content subscription model in a bit more detail. As I noted earlier, the model drove a substantial increase in circulation revenues again this quarter as it continued to garner customer attention in our local publishing markets. Given we are now through the first anniversary of the 2012 launch in many of our publishing sites, we have already begun the relaunch of our local digital platforms, starting with the debut of a new iPad app for the Democrat and Chronicle in Rochester in order to ensure that our customers are continuing to get fresh, relevant content on the most convenient platforms they choose. The relaunch of our mobile and desktop products will continue to improve the user experience and create higher-value advertising opportunities for our clients with even greater scale. We expect the relaunch of our top 35 markets to be largely completed by year's end.
It's hard to tell where Aaron Sorkin wants us to come down on this, whether he wants us to agree with Don's (and Jim's, for that matter) assessment of Sloan's (and Maggie's) situation or critique it. After suggesting Sloan is partially to blame for the photos and that she has a low opinion of herself, Don gives her the oh-so-romantic boost of confidence she apparently so desperately needs: "You're impressive."
The bill, which passed 400 to 20, would cut Iran's oilexports by another 1 million barrels per day over a year, in anattempt to reduce the flow of funds to the nuclear program. Itis the first sanctions bill to put a number on exactly how muchIran's oil exports would be cut.

"Wearing your belt too tight can raise your risk of getting throat cancerâ¦as it increases your chance of suffering acid reflux," is the unnecessarily alarmist headline in The Daily Telegraph.
Next, I made a stop at the Bellevue Men’s Shelter. For gloominess of aspect, Bellevue is unique, with its high columns near the entryway surmounted by the words “Psychiatric Hospital” (the building’s original function). Bellevue has eight hundred and fifty beds and is also called one of the worst shelters in the city; in general, the smaller shelters are said to be much less bad, and some are even nice. Ellis, the dollar-apiece Newport cigarette seller on the street out front, suggested I go to Intake and register myself if I wanted to see what the place was like; I took his word for it instead. Then I subwayed up to 103rd Street on the Lexington line and walked across the footbridge to Wards Island, where a three-hundred-bed men’s shelter occupies another former psychiatric hospital. That shelter, called the Charles H. Gay Building, is a lonesome place; constantly you hear the tires bumping on an approach ramp to the Robert F. Kennedy Bridge up above it.

Or we can get information about the distribution of cells in certain regions. There are also very, very small lesions in the brain, where it is very important not only to know what it looks like inside the core of the lesion, but also on the so-called penumbra – areas of the brain that were damaged but not yet dead.

You must grow Witloof chicory, however, and some F1 varieties, such as Witloof Zoom F1, are widely available. It makes a good crop for the home gardener because you can plant it out after the broad beans, or another early crop. We sow our seeds in May under cool glass in modular six by four trays, one or two seeds per module. Ours are planted out once the fibrous roots have filled the module, but before the taproot develops. You can sow seeds directly into the ground in May, about half an inch deep in rows a foot apart, but we never have enough space then. One 6ft x 4ft (2m x 1m) bed will accommodate about 28 plants, which is plenty for us.

Yet, the liquidation authority and the living will ideas suffer from a dilemma, in that the regulators will be reluctant in publicly announcing an institutionâs financial death as this may cause a run on other institutions. The beefed up capital levels are, after all, dependent on the public perception of banksâ solvency, which, may well be deemed to be insufficient in time of crisis. Neither of these measures answers the questions of how the recapitalization would be funded, and how the losses would be allocated among debtors and creditors.

It's the granddaddy of all border walls, fences, and defense systems, but contrary to popular belief, we're not just talking about a single wall here. The term Great Wall of China actually refers to a series of fortifications built by several Chinese dynasties, from the 8th century BC to the 15th century AD.
