I wanted to cover three things We are creating and encouraging a culture of distraction where we are increasingly disconnected from the people and events around us and increasingly unable to engage in long-form thinking. People now feel anxious when their brains are unstimulated. We are losing some very important things by doing this. And we inhibit real human connection when we prioritize our phones over our the people right in front of us. What can we do about it? Is this path inevitable or can balance be restored? Alternatively, you can watch the video someone shot of it. See you if you see yourself in this. What are we losing — of ourselves, of our relationships to one another, of what in many ways, I would say, our humanity. What can we do about it.

Share this article Share The mother whale had been carrying her dead calf for days as she swam. The other whales were clearly aware of what had happened, and seemed deeply affected. But ongoing studies are helping us understand what may be going on, thanks to the work of scientists including Dr Paul Jepson, of the Institute of Zoology, who has studied how chemical pollution is a likely cause of declines in some whale and dolphin populations in Europe.
I felt the same wrenching emotions when I first saw it — pity for the grieving mother, and horror at the realisation that man-made pollution is probably responsible Scientists we spoke to believe this is because these mothers are drawing on their deep fat reserves for the first time, to make rich milk. And new science is studying the level that plastic may contribute to the uptake of these toxins that are released with the milk — and could kill the first-born babies.
This could help to explain why one pod of killer whales off the Scottish coast have not been able to raise a single live calf in the past 25 years.

Wasilla, behind 3 Bears on the Palmer Wasilla Hwy Posts I did a little research on notifying the BATF and couldn’t find anything beyond requirements for dealers with federal licences to report guns that were stolen from their businesses. I’ve also put together the list above and taken it to the 2 bigger pawnshops here in the Valley, but you have to wonder how much help they would really be.
Of course it doesn’t help much that we don’t have the same kind of computerized stolen goods database that they seem to have in Anchorage here in the valley The crappy part about the deal is not that the 2 good guns were stolen or even the Nylon Its the old Stevens 20 ga. They were both junky guns, the 20 ga. The Mason’s Ceremonial Sword fell into the same category almost. Most of the markings on the sword and scabbard were wore off or badly tarnished and the stitching on the sheath was all coming out.
I don’t think it had any real value other than sentimental family value. And then there were the pearls. We had just borrowed them for our daughter to wear for her wedding and they belonged to a family friend. All the gun stuff, pearls and sword were in a cheap little steel safe in the storage room in my garage.
It looks like the thieves came in the garage walk-in door, either they bumped or picked the lock it wasn’t forced open and went right to the safe which was pretty much in plain view with the storage room door open like normal the pressure tank and water softener are also in the room so if you leave the door shut the room gets pretty humid, ah, at least that’s my excuse and, using a pry bar, popped the safe door open.

It features a 30 round detachable magazine, a retractable stock, and a barrel shroud with a vertical fore grip.

Columbia River Hissatsu Tactical Knife 6. The CRKT Hissatsu knife is designed like the Japanese samurai katana which is a long curved blade which is made so that the user can draw the blade from the sheath and go right into a cut. The curved blade allows the user to not just cut right from the sheath but it allows you to make that cut then the blade will cut its way out of the body so that the tool can be used right away. Most combat knives have straight blades and when you make a slashing cut with a straight blade the blade tends to cut down then you need to pull the blade out but with a curved blade it does this work for you by cutting your blade out so it can be used right away.
But this knife was not designed for that.

Material gathered by Rick Brenemen Detonics Pistol The Detonics Combat Master was the first really small and compact pattern pistol to be produced in significant numbers. Law enforcement fell in love with it immediately due to its diminutive size and quality. Far more important than the media exposure was the revolutionary reliability work done inside the pistol. The Detonics introduced the bulged barrel end so that the pistol did not require a bushing. It also incorporated double and triple recoil springs.
It was the first production pattern which was throated and ramped for hollowpoints.
