One potential problem with a laser based device is that lasers can’t penetrate opaque containers. Presumably, if a liquid explosive is contained in some sort of ceramic or metal container, FirstDefender won’t be able to catch it. Some other security devices (mostly in development) that can analyze contained liquids rely on methods like radio wave and microwave bombardment, which have their own shortcomings.
This was the right choice. It’s beyond me why Clark Ray (or Peter Rosenstein) decided to challenge Mendelson in this race. The fact that he (they) chose to challenge Mendelson should have lost them this endorsement right off the bat attempting to remove the best straight ally the community has in the District is in and of itself damaging to the movement.
These promises were enough to soothe the frayed nerves of Obama’s colleagues on the left, though many Republicans remained unconvinced. A few days later, the bailout passed amid continued opposition from hard line conservatives. Liberal Democrats saved the banks..
Given Singapore’s position as a Southeast Asia travel hub, health officials say it’s likely, perhaps even inevitable, that travelers will inadvertently spread Zika elsewhere. While the subtropical region is used to dealing with mosquito borne infectious diseases such as dengue and slower developing illnesses such as HIV/AIDS, many countries’ surveillance systems arenot set up to closelymonitor pregnant women and their babies, the individuals who are most vulnerable to the pathogen. One of the tricky things about Zika is that mostpeople who get it don’t have any symptoms, and by the time traditional tracking methods such as those in emergency rooms pick up on groups of patients with the virus, it has probably already spread throughout the population..
“The [mechanical root] is very straight forward,” said McCauley, “Oftentimes, we find polystyrene foam lodged in the intestines that causes blockages that can be lethal. If you think about how we worry about a mild blockage from eating the wrong thing, imagine eating a ball of Styrofoam. That’s what some of these animals are doing.”.
As those values became more vapid, violent and cynical, Rogers’s mission went from benevolently heroic to virtually Sisyphean: “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” revisits the episode, aired almost exactly 50 years ago to the day, when he threaded his audience through the meaning of “assassination” after the death of Robert F. Kennedy. As something of an elder statesman of thoughts and feelings, he helped the nation process the Challenger tragedy in 1986; by 2001, when he was called upon to speak about the 9/11 attacks, he’s clearly beset by doubt, if not in himself then in a world that despite his most honorable efforts, seems not to have heard a word he’s been saying for 30 years.
