Hey, whats the connection to lead bullets in particular? Bullets are made from heavy metals anyway that would also poison an animal if ingested. Also, how would a bullet made from another metal differ if it was ingested?

Since 1980 about $40 million has been spent in an effort to ‘save’ the California Condor from extinction. For that cost, we now have about 300 living birds…half of them still in captivity.

The condor came to be during an era when very large creatures roamed the land, and left very large carcasses to be scavenged. In addition, the birds watched the seacoasts for beached whales, and other large marine animals.

Today, the giant elk, mammoth, and other super-fauna are extinct, and a beached whale doesn’t remain exposed for scavenging any longer than it takes the local beach-front property owner to call for removal.

Therefore, it’s only natural that the condor should follow it’s natural food sources into extinction.

The effort to ‘save’ the condor is not only grossly expensive, but wholly unnatural. That is clearly proven by the fact that they do not maintain viable populations when released into the wild…unless they are regularly fed by researchers.

This effort to ban lead bullets is an agenda-driven ploy to restrict shooting…and will have no effect on the survivability of a bird that is already doomed.

I find it extremely ludicrous that a state which has voted to allow huge amounts of lead to be added to its water supply in the form of the fluoride waste used for water fluoridation, is worried about this same substance in the form of lead bullets. Fluoride waste used for water fluoridation, along with its high lead content, greatly increases the amount of lead absorbed by those consuming the water due to the fluoride itself. Other countries are removing fluoride since its link to cavities has now been disproved and the EPA scientists have spoken on this many times.

How You Should Use A List Of Business Fax Phone Numbers

By Chris Burns

So you have purchased a list of business fax phone numbers from a listing company over the internet. What next? This is perhaps one of the most commonly asked questions when people purchase a list of business fax phone numbers. Unlike other types of lists such as mailing lists, there aren’t too many articles over the internet that teach you how you should use a list of business fax phone numbers. This article seeks to do so by providing you with a guide on how you should use a list of business fax phone numbers.

Before you begin, it is important for you to understand the legal terms of fax marketing. Check with your listing company regarding the source of the business fax phone numbers in your list. Generally, these numbers should be a compilation of publicly available numbers. If a company lists its fax number openly, it means that it does not have any issues relating to receiving any unsolicited fax from external parties who have managed to have gotten hold of these numbers.

With legal issues in place, it is time to move on to how you should use your list of business fax phone numbers to arrive at your desired results.

For one, you could, and in fact, you should use your list of business fax phone numbers to promote the products and services which you are offering. Given the fact that people would have to print out your message in the first place, it would be less likely that these marketing messages would be chucked aside without reading. Make use of this to your advantage. You could even attach a cut-out which can be presented as a discounted price for the products that you are selling as part of the fax message in order to draw greater appeal. Also, it is important for you to include a call to action to further increase the effectiveness of your marketing message. This method of marketing would definitely result in an increase in sales as you would now be able raise the awareness of others towards the range of products and services which you are offering.

Additionally, you could also use your list of business fax phone numbers as a means to solicit for joint ventures and affiliate participation. Instead of getting others to purchase your products, why not get them to sell it for you? The fact is, most companies and individuals are increasingly turning towards affiliate participation due to the attractive commissions offered these days. Similarly, you could also make use of the same strategy. Arouse their attention with headlines screaming ’60% Commission for keeps’. The employment of such marketing strategy would definitely result in a dramatic increase in sales revenue for your business over time.

Clearly, there are many ways how you should use a list of business fax phone numbers. In all cases, what is most important would be the ability to generate greater sales volume for your business. This would in turn depend upon how effective you are at crafting your marketing message in order to capture the attention of others.

Talk:US Supreme Court dismisses appeal on Obama’s citizenship

This is the first Obama citizenship case which was decided by the US S. Court, making it the most newsworthy, since the others are in the lower courts, and about 2 are still pending. Please help me in the review of this landmark Obama issue. Thanks.–Florentino Floro (talk) 12:55, 9 December 2008 (UTC)

This was posted on Tuesday. The supreme court posted an official docket online on Monday saying the Cort Wrotnowski case was submitted by Justice Scalia to conference for Friday, December 12. Why is this critical information left out? The title should read US Supreme Court dismisses one case, but sends another to conference, on Obama’s citizenship.

Your Posters Can Help You Market Your Real Estate

Your Posters Can Help You Market Your Real Estate

by

Colleen S. Davis

So you have a home to sell. Real estate is down at this time. And with so many houses being sold, with less people buying at this time, how can you provide appeal to your real estate? Poster printing can help you market your property.

What you have in your poster print particularly can get you the target clients you need to sell your home. In addition to having a website to market it, a print ad can go a long way in marketing what you have to offer.

YouTube Preview Image

Poster printing, when done carefully, can be an impressive ad when posted outside your home. Include details such as special rooms and facilities and you would surely have people coming in to take a look.

Poster print design is especially attractive when done in full color. To show off your real property to its fullest, do it in living color. Make sure that your poster printing is worth a thousand words with full color images to showcase what you have to sell. Take all the photos you want of your property. Then choose the best shots. Remember that putting too many can only clutter your poster print so make sure to include just one or two that best describe your real property.

Along with photos, include all the details that would make it easy for your prospective buyers to make a decision. Add to your poster printing the price and the specific location of your real estate property. The moment they see these information the faster it would be for your home to be viewed. Whether they are interested or not, your target clients may be influenced when they see your home in person.

Include also as much information as your poster print can carry in its space. Highlight only those that make your real estate unique and distinct from the other homes also on sale. Does it have a manicured lawn, a Jacuzzi perhaps? A big backyard that can serve as a party place can be a great attraction. From the outside to the inside of your home, mention what makes your particular home exceptional. A spectacular view from the master s bedroom would cinch it.

And have I already mentioned the location? Don t forget to emphasize your location. Location is very crucial when selling real estate. Is it near a school? What about recreation parks? Can the buyer go to a nearby supermarket or local grocer for their essential needs?

To create quality full color poster, you got to list your features first what you have and what you don t have. Then rate all you have to the most important down to the least. When you re finished doing your list, then it s time for you to choose the best and include that in your print ad. When in doubt, a good poster printer can always help you decide on the most appropriate design to get you to effectively market your real estate property.

John Constable painting location mystery solved after 195 years

Tuesday, January 26, 2010 

The mystery of the location of a viewpoint used by English painter John Constable has been solved, after nearly 200 years. The Stour Valley and Dedham Church was painted in Suffolk, England, between 1814 and 1815, but changes to the landscape meant that the spot he chose was not known, despite the best efforts of historians and art experts.

Now the puzzle has been answered. Martin Atkinson, who works for the National Trust as property manager for East Suffolk, used clues from the painting and looked at old maps to track down the viewpoint. Trees had grown, a hedgerow had been planted and boundaries had moved or disappeared, but Atkinson eventually worked out where Constable had stood. He said, “When I discovered that I had worked out the location where Constable painted this particular masterpiece, I couldn’t believe it. All the pieces of the jigsaw finally fitted together.”

Atkinson used an 1817 map of East Bergholt, where Constable grew up, as a reference point, but found that the view would have changed not long after the painting was completed. “The foreground didn’t fit at all, it was quite unusual as we know Constable painted it in the open air so he would have been standing in the scene. The hedgerow in his work no longer exists and there’s another hedgerow that runs across the scene today which wasn’t there. When you stand on the road on which he would have stood, and use the oak tree as a reference point, you see the same view. It’s great to see where an old master stood – and be inspired by the same view,” he said.

Suffolk, where Constable painted many of his finest paintings, is often called “Constable country”. Most, but not all, of the locations that Constable depicted are known. The picture is now housed in the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, Massachusetts.

U.S. Supreme Court eases government ability to seize property

June 24, 2005

In a major decision, the Supreme Court of the United States has expanded the right of government to seize private property for public good by allowing the city of New London, Connecticut to invoke eminent domain and seize homeowners’ property for economic development reasons.

In a closely-divided decision, 5-4, the court determined that the city’s economic development plan constituted a “public use”, and therefore qualified under the U.S. Constitution’s fifth amendment’s Eminent Domain clause.

Justice John Paul Stevens wrote the majority decision, and was joined by Justices David H. Souter, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Stephen G. Breyer and Anthony Kennedy. “Promoting economic development is a traditional and long accepted function of government,” Stevens wrote, and justified the decision further by saying municipal authorities are better positioned to make decisions regarding a community’s best interests than judges.

Writing the dissenting opinion, Justice Sandra Day O’Connor rejected the economic justification as a public use, pointing out that wealthy individuals are more capable of defending themselves and so are less at risk. But the greatest issue was the liklihood of abuse of eminent domain:

“The specter of condemnation hangs over all property. Nothing is to prevent the state from replacing any Motel 6 with a Ritz-Carlton, any home with a shopping mall or any farm with a factory.” A separate dissent was also included written by Justice Clarence Thomas.

Golden Retriever Adoption Does A Puppy Or An Older Dog Make A Better Family Pet?

Golden Retriever Adoption Does A Puppy Or An Older Dog Make A Better Family Pet?

by

James T Drake

Your family has finally reached a time in their lives where getting a pet seems like a good idea. You all agree that a Golden Retriever adoption might be perfect for your family and now left with the decision of whether or not to adopt a puppy or an older dog.

While you have no doubt heard from several sources that choosing an older dog for your Golden Retriever adoption can give that dog a second chance for a family and a happy life, you have also no doubt heard horror stories about rescue dogs that have come into families with a series of problems that make them less than perfect family pets. On the other hand, you have also probably heard stories about dogs that have been with the same family since weaning that have also exhibited behavior problems as well. So, the question remains, which would make a better pet for your family, a new Golden Retriever puppy or an adult dog.

The answer really depends on your family. If you have very young children an adult dog of this breed just may be ideal for your family for several reasons. First, with an adult dog you can make a good assessment of the dog’s individual temperament. While Goldens are known for their friendly and gentle personalities, it doesn’t mean every dog of this breed will have that quality. So, it is something you want to really consider if you have young children. Older people too find that choosing an older dog in their Golden Retriever adoption often works out better than adopting a puppy would. It all depends on your situation.

While some breeds of dogs are loyal to just one person, this is not true of this particular breed. These dogs may be equally friendly to family members and strangers alike, which means that they are a breed that can adjust well to new owners and new homes with very little effort or trouble. However, this will depend on just what type of treatment they have received in the past. So, if you are adopting an older dog, learn as much of its history as possible. Keep in mind that rescues are not the only place to get older Golden’s. Many times breeders have older dogs up for Golden Retriever adoption and can give you a complete history of these dogs.

Families with older children who have the time and patience to train and care for a puppy through that puppy stage may well prefer a younger dog or a small puppy. There is something to be said for the experience of working with and training a dog from puppyhood and there is a certain satisfaction that comes with such bonding and training.

However, if you are considering a puppy for your Golden Retriever adoption, take your time and do a bit of research. Either adopt from a reputable breeder or find a rescue that may have pups that they are looking to place. Of course, if your main goal is to have a show dog for a pet, then a puppy is definitely the way to go.

If you are not planning on showing your dog, and if your ultimate goal is to have a healthy and fun pet to love and care for, then either a pup or an older dog will work well in your Golden Retriever adoption. In either case giving a dog a loving home and having the companionship of a Golden Retriever can be a rewarding experience.
