Rhymer’s father and grandfather were Smithsonian taxidermists. And they showed him tricks he says are a dying art in museums.

1 points submitted 3 days agoI guess it hard for a public organization to justify employing people to work on city infrastructure without paying them enough to actually live in the city.And let be honest, 80k a year in the city doesn really go far, especially in Manhattan. Also keep in mind that this is an average wage for all MTA employees, so I doubt a 24 year old driver makes amywhere near that.So I honestly don think that sounds excessive at all, given the obnoxious cost if living in the city.sasquatch007 4 points submitted 1 month agoHere are my semi informed thoughts (for reference, I have an advanced degree in mathematics and have done lots of independent programming; I also took lots of CS classes and have sought tech related jobs but never actually got an offer).If you want to do what it seems the large majority of CS graduates do these days (web programming or UI or pushing stuff in and out of a database, using languages like Javascript or Java or C or Ruby or whatever else it is these people do), then yes, I think you will be at somewhat of a disadvantage. This not necessarily so much because of things you won learn in class, but because you won be part of a network of other students seeking the same positions and with the support of a department that geared towards connecting you with those kinds of companies.

Obviously, this phenomenon isn’t anything new. It’s a concept called conspicuous consumption which is defined as lavish spending thought to enhance social prestige and we encounter it every day. That Louis Vuitton luggage with the LV’s splashed hundreds of times across the leather suitcase? The Bentley you see cruising up Park Avenue? The sweater clad Maltese on a walk in Central Park? People aren’t buying these for their functionality, they’re buying them because it proves they have the money to afford it.

Among other things, it’s clear that the protections on prisoners of war (the biggest one that’s usually cited) are explicitly part of a carrot and stick, to encourage nations to obey all the conventions. The treatment of POW guarantees are explicitly a benefit to conforming nations, NOT provided generally because we think it’s a cool thing to do. It does state than when not sure you should still follow the conventions but in that saying it’s clear that when you are sure they represent a non conforming combatant, the protections do not apply..

It is doubtful that China can sustain the necessary annual increase in grain production. Increasing use of fertilisers, pesticides, high yielding varieties and genetically improved crops has enabled the productivity per hectare to increase hugely, but the decline in the absolute amount of arable land may reduce the effects of these technical improvements. The average area of land per person in China is 50% less than the world average and arable land in China is being lost at an increasing rate due to urbanisation, natural, soil erosion and construction projects.

If I look in the distance I can see blurry shapes and colors but have no idea what I’m looking at. Wayne, barely into his teens, was a big part of that ascension. He’d gone fairly quickly from being a talented kid who acted in plays at a magnet middle school and left unsolicited bars on Cash Money’s answering machines to being one of its hottest properties.

In depth research on viewing habits has demonstrated time and again that when people navigate a website or app on their phones or tablets, they scan and scroll until something catches their eye. That something is typically a pithy headline or an intriguing image.What I learning, however, is that many companies simply aren grasping the impulsive nature of the buying public.

Chen and his wife, Yuan Weijing, were beaten several times.The 41 year old activist hatched his escape plan months ago with a simple idea he would just lie still, said Bob Fu, founder of the Texas based rights group ChinaAid and one of a handful of people to speak to Chen since he fled his village.For weeks on end, Chen stayed in bed, saying he was too feeble to rise.In fact, Chen wasn’t well; his stomach was bothering him as it had for years.

“SUP gets more muscles firing than just about any other activity,” says SUP racer Kristin Thomas, executive director of theStand Up Paddle Industry Association. “It’s deceptively fit producing, even if you’re just a casual paddler.” You can easily burn 1,000 calories or more an hour while max effort racing, and even laid back excursions burn about 500 an hour.

Using the 1881 census for England and Wales, the paper explores factors that influence the decision to pursue a single or multiple occupations, such as farm areal size, number of employees, market potential measured by population density, and demographic characteristics of farmers. Empirical findings from a multi level logit model suggest that farm size, population density and farmers’ age have a non linear relationship with the probability of pluriactivity. With respect to gender and marital status, single men and women as well as widows are less likely to engage in pluriactivity than married men.
