Which brings me to one other point. One sure way for a newsroom to break free from the “story of the day” is to set the agenda itself, through enterprise reporting. The Washington Post did that brilliantly this election cycle, with David Fahrenthold’s dogged investigation into Trump’s charitable contributions.
Many years ago, when I was recovering from wounds I received in a Southeast Asian country, a United States Army psychiatrist told me that my morphine induced dreams were creating what he called a “world destruction fantasy,” one that had its origins in childhood and the dissolution of one’s natal family. He was a scientist and a learned man, and I did not argue with him. Even at night, when I lay in a berth on a hospital ship, far from free fire zones and the sound of ammunition belts popping under a burning hooch, I did not argue.
California Lt. Gov. Gavin Newsom, 47, and state Attorney General Kamala Harris, 50, are the two biggest liberal names being floated to take over for Boxer. The big difference, though, is that Poly doesn really exist outside the US. Interestingly, you find many foreign companies believe that it interacts negatively with acetate (untrue), and for the most part, no country other than the US feels it has benefits over plastic that make it worthwhile. If you go to China and try to buy poly lenses you struggle.
Ah, quoting Leviticus as though it is relevant. Christianity is by definition striving to be like Jesus. Not the laws set in place by God “chosen people” in order to separate themselves as a nation. Cardinality is useful because it a big hammer that applies to a wide variety of situations. In situations where you have more structure, you might be better off using some other way of comparing the size of sets. For example, to compare the sizes of subsets of the natural numbers, it more informative to use the natural density, which confirms the “naive” intuition that the composite numbers (natural density 1) are much more common than primes (natural density 0).
British officials announced Thursday that they had foiled an advanced plot to blow up airliners headed to the United States with liquid explosives hidden in carry on bags. The news prompted heightened security efforts in the United States and Britain, and long lines and delays at airports in both countries. Official told NPR that the suicide attackers planned to use a peroxide based solution that could ignite when sparked by something as simple as a camera flash or other portable electronic device.
