David, apparently you don't get around much. Try traveling around this country. You might learn something.
They are probably more concerned with the e-cigs that have nicotine, which is most of them.
I believe you misread your history book. It was the USSR, not the US that did what you are saying.
arpaio state college...third best college in the state.
Yes @fraser007, that will mean having to pay to read it online. Odds are they'll do like how other papers do, and give you X number of story reads free each month, then the rest will require a monthly subscription.
Fear not, though: you'll still be able to read UA basketball and football coverage (FOR FREE) here: http://bleacherreport.com/users/2861968-br…
And why can't kids get e-cigarettes that don't have nicotine in them? Kids have pretend drinks all the time, like Shirley Temples, Roy Rodgers and Ginger Beer and play pretend with adult beverages. Kids pretend to drive in toy cars and they play with toy guns. How is flavored water vapor any different? Yes, nicotine should be regulated, but e-cigarettes? really?
The "A" has been white since last Easter. That is a record for not being painted over.
Hate Kanye West. He is the biggest loser and using the people to buy and support his life style.
How about some of the U of A Frat guys protecting the Wildcat statue for a couple weeks before the big game? Or maybe having the U of A admin allocating some extra funds to have the U of A cops (or even the parking police) spend some extra time in front of the Wildcats? Heck, make it a social event. The admin could buy some steaks and dogs and make it something fun. (the frat guys could bring the beer!! lol) We can spend millions of dollars on projects how about some overtime shifts? Bring in the Alumni and have rich Rod stop by for a quick visit or KaDeem Carey etc.
We CANNOT allow the Scummies do this. BEAR DOWN
In as much as local security is provided by the Peruvian National Police or army, by long-standing convention, I must work the police and/or army. Armed, private security forces are rare here, which in my opinion is a good thing. Thus I do lobby the Ministry of Interior to work regionally, which they are doing in a much improved manner. A single, secure corridor is not a long-term solution.
Peru, like many developing countries is plagued by a lack of a strong governmental presence in most of the essential services. So when something is desperately needed, the companies work in a coordinated manner to bring the services in for all, not just a few. I also work with the Ministry of Health to assist in improved health services and the Ministry of Education to aid in improving the education system through cooperative efforts which include the communities in our areas of interest. For something to be truly sustainable, the many stakeholds all need to be involved wherever possible. A complex, but very rewarding process when the plans reach fruition.
No, I've seen too much of the avarice in human nature and the aftermath of mining activities. And if by "animosity", you mean that I urge the firms your named to stop utilizing companies who exploit or enslave their workforce to build those handy devices, I stand proudly guilty of that charge.
I send you the same holiday wishes, despite our differences. Out of curiosity, has the gas company offered any protection (private security, for lack of a better term) to the terrorized villages you referenced? And if so, have they offered the same protection to villages which aren't adjacent to their pipeline? If not, the legacy of Standard Oil lives on as well.
Why can't Fox kill off The Simpsons? They're not funny anymore, should have gone to pasture three seasons ago.
I think you have seen one too many Rodger Moore movies given your readiness to believe those supposedly true and independent news articles. I have no problem working for the mining companies discussed and others that the anti-development types condemn. I hope you do not hold the same animosity toward Apple, IBM, Honda and others who use labor in developing countries that provide you and I with the things we need and use.
In any event, hope that your Thanksgiving is good. Mine will be spent in the jungles of southern Peru where I will meet with the mayors of several small villages along a gas pipeline route. They are being terrorized by the remnants of the Senderó Luminoso, which is in part financed by the Venezuelan Government and narcotraffickers. The legacy of good old Hugo Chavez lives on.
Here's a little piece of history for Wildcat fans. John"Button" Salmon, U of A football player and student body president in 1926, was also a star baseball player, working behind the plate for thethe Arizona varsity team. Considered a serious prospect for the big show, Button (a 1921 graduate of Bisbee High School) spent his 1926 summer playing as a catcher for the Bisbee Bees of the outlaw Copper League, which operated in southeast Arizona, southwest New Mexico and far west Texas. Among the players in the Copper League during the 1926 season were Chick Gandil, Lefty Williams and Buck Weaver. Those three were members of the 1919 Chcago White Sox team and were three of the "Eight Men Out" who were forever banned from organized baseball for conspiring with gamblers to fix the World Series. Also playing in that league was Hal Chase, the best first baseman in the early 20th century, fired by Christy Mathewson from the Cincinnatti Reds for "laying back" in games and former New York Giant Jimmy O'Connell, banned for suspected game fixing. So, Wildcat fans, another reason to take pride in our school. The man responsible for coining "Bear Down" tangled with the infamous Black Sox on the field shortly before his untimely death. And his home field, 104-year-old Warren Ballpark, is still used year round in Bisbee.
Well, Brian was the only reason I watched, no reason to now. Too bad they didn't kill off the dumbass Peter. Now the ratings will drop lower than whale crap in the Marianas Trench.
Ane Eve was fabulous and even gracious as Bruce Ash kept interrupting her. By the way, when Bruce Ash turns and you can see his profile, there is a stunning resemblance to Pinocchio.
And as stated by Mike A. "I gag........". Suggestion: Quit going down on your boyfriend especially after you've been hittin' your bong! And as far as knowing what a "patriot" is, you will find out when your daddy the Illegal Alien in the Wh declares martial law. I'm sure that you will get an up close and personal introduction. So back to suckin' on your bong (or whatever).
The Arizona Education Network and the state's Democratic Party share a concern for the adequate education of our young people for life in the 21st century, together with a belief that the public schools, from kindergarten through university graduate schools, are the institutions in which most of Arizona's students are going to be educated. Somehow our recent legislatures, with heavy Republican majorities, and our largely self-educated Governor, have not seen fit to protect and strengthen the investment made over many decades in public education. Indeed, they have done the opposite, cutting billions from state spending for education.
Yes, genocidal tyrants are indeed a hot button of mine. And Hugo Chavez received more votes than George Bush or Obama ever did (or Pinochet for that matter), and in far fairer elections. Was he a genocidal tyrant? I honestly don't know, though I do know no evidence has been ever presented to suggest that he rounded up and executed stadiums full of political opponents and/or indigenous peoples as happened in Chile.
Your definition of a good corporate citizen and mine are certainly divergent. Barrick and Rio Tinto's actions outlined in the links at the website are abhorrent, illegal and wrong-it does not surprise me that you defend them as you already admit to taking their money. Their reputations became spotless with you as soon as their checks cleared. I'm sure you'll continue in your chosen profession with a clear conscience for the same reason.
