A girl with a canister of pepper spray. A guy with an odd recurring dream. A tiny colony of nervous California sea lions.They all come together in Dana Point Harbor....Author’s Note:A random and seemingly irrelevant question totally inspired me to write this short story. “If the characters (from my historical novel The Legacy of the Marshall Cousins) lived now in California, what would they be like?”I was at Dana Point Harbor. A sea lion was loitering in the water. My imagination ran wild. So did Clare. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Sarah Giovannetti.

This week on Car Talk, Glen's summer vacation got a little more exciting when his rental car caught on fire, after he spilled oil on the manifold. He escaped unscathed, but did the car? And, more importantly, did he 'fess up to the rental company? Elsewhere, Joann's getting a foot bath from her Grand Caravan; Ed's Jetta needs a few seconds to convince itself it really wants to go into Reverse; and Sue's wondering why PAM cooking spray quieted her noisy fan belt. But our deepest question of the week comes from Vera in New Orleans: Is it legal to drive barefoot? All this, plus the truth about duct tape, a new Puzzler from the Baseball Algebraic series, and lots more, this week on Car Talk. [Broadcast Date: September 22, 2012] 1. Language: English.

When Keri Daniels’ editor finds out she has previous carnal knowledge of reclusive best-selling author Joe Kowalski, she gives Keri a choice: get an interview or get a new job. Joe’s never forgotten the first girl to break his heart, so he’s intrigued to hear Keri’s back in town—and looking for him. Despite his intense need for privacy, he’ll grant Keri an interview if it means a chance to finish what they started in high school. He proposes an outrageous plan—for every day she survives with his family on their annual camping and four-wheeling trip, Keri can ask one question. Keri agrees; she’s worked too hard to walk away from her career. But the chemistry between them is still as potent as the bug spray, Joe’s sister is out to avenge his broken heart, and Keri hasn’t ridden an ATV since she was 10.

The world is a stage, life is a play, and we are the puppets. It's better not to ask who pulls the strings. How lucky do you feel? That question echoed through the world's underground, scrawled on bathroom walls, spray-painted across subway tunnel exits, written on paper that fluttered through bleak side-streets in the winter wind, printed on cheap business cards tacked to corkboard displays in darkened hallways. But always beneath one name - Limbus. Matthew Sellers revealed the truth of Limbus, Inc. to the world, and in his tales of time travelers, intergalactic beings, and human sacrifice, he thought he had told it all. But the story of the shadowy employment agency that operates on the edge of the abyss, always finding the perfect person for the perfect job - no matter what the cost - had only begun. This shared-world anthology continues the story of Limbus, Inc., as told by five masters of horror, fantasy, and science fiction. But beware, for once you learn the truth of Limbus, Inc., your world will never be the same. So it's time to ask yourself.... How lucky do you feel? 1. Language: English. Narrator: Gregory Zarcone.

Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Two of the highest waterfalls in Bulgaria are located near the town of Vratsa, North-West Bulgaria. One is named Skaklia and the other one Borov Kamak. Skaklia (Bulgarian: ) is the name of two different waterfalls in Bulgaria. The one near Vratsa is 130 metres high ( 141 metres according to other sources ) and is located 1.5 kilometres south of the town behind the Kaleto hill top 43°10 57 N 23°32 59 E / 43.1825°N 23.54972°E / 43.1825, 23.54972. It is considered one of the highest waterfalls in Bulgaria and on the Balkan peninsula. Nevertheless, this remains a debatable question in Bulgaria until today, as this is a semi-active waterfall, not a constant one (not having constant flow of water) unlike the 124.5 metres high Raysko Praskalo (Heavenly Spray) also situated in Bulgaria.
Global pesticide use is currently estimated at approximately 2. 5 billion kg per year (Pimentel eta/. , 1998). To be effective, pesticides need to persist for a certain period of time. However, the longer their persistence, the greater the potential for transport of a fraction of the amount applied away from the target area. Pesticides are dispersed in the environment by water currents, wind, or biota. Pesticides can directly contaminate ground and surface waters by leaching, surface run-off and drift. Pesticides can also enter the atmosphere during application by evaporation and drift of small spray droplets, that remain airborne. Following application, pesticides may volatilise from the crop or the soil. Finally, wind erosion can cause soil particles and dust loaded with pesticides to enter the atmosphere. The extent to which pesticides enter the air compartment is dependent upon many factors: the properties of the substance in question (e. g. vapour pressure), the amount used, the method of application, the formulation, the weather conditions (such as wind speed, temperature, humidity), the nature of the crop and soil characteristics. Measurements at application sites reveal that sometimes more than half of the amount applied is lost into the atmosphere within a few days (Spencer and Cliath, 1990; Taylor and Spencer; 1990; Van den Berg et a/. , this issue).
Children always ask,'Why?'. This author wants them to know that whatever the question, God has all the answers. It includes questions like: 'Oh, why is it that fish have scales and turtles have a shell? And tell me why skunks flick their tails and spray that nasty smell?' 'Why do we have mosquitos, fleas, hornets, ticks and flies? We could live well without these things I'm sure you realize.'
