In 2005, after Hurricane Katrina, the International Fund for Animal Welfare dispatched emergency rescue teams to New Orleans. The teams methodically combed the city, door-to-door, rescuing thousands of cats and dogs left behind by evacuees. Most of the residents left their pets thinking they would be allowed to return home in a couple days. Others were rescued by first responders and weren’t allowed to bring their pets. Evacuees who made their way to shelters or temporary housing were not allowed to bring pets either.
I’ve been asked repeatedly in the last few days, “Why would a man who has everything—A beautiful wife, loving family, a fortune estimated at $1 billion—endanger it all to have affairs with women that don’t hold a candle to his wife? What’s going on here?” Golfer Tiger Woods, engulfed in media speculation over his private life after a car accident in the middle of the night, apologized on Wednesday for "transgressions" in a statement that apparently addressed allegations he had extra-marital relationships. Woods, the world's number one golfer and a married father of two young children, said in a statement published on his website that he had "not been true to my values and the behavior my family deserves," without directly addressing the allegations of infidelity."I have let my family down and I regret those transgressions with all of my heart," Woods said.
This research is created to examine the campaign donations of the Chrysler dealerships scheduled to close. I want to compare data from these dealerships and the remaining ones to determine if the surviving dealerships are being rewarded for their campaign donations to the Democrats and/or Obama since 2004. All data seen has been located through opensecrets.org and includes money from the past 3 elections.
The Navy has numerous bases located in seismically active regions throughout the world. Safe and effective structural design of waterfront facilities requires calculating the expected site specific ground motion and determining the response of these complex structures to the induced loading. The Navy's problem is further complicated by the presence of soft saturated marginal soils which can significantly amplify the levels of seismic shaking and liquefy as evidenced in the 1989 Loma Prieta earthquake. Liquefaction is a major factor at the waterfront and most of the damage the Navy has sustained from earthquakes can be attributed to it. The presence of unconsolidated loose cohesionless soils and the high water table makes waterfront sites especially vulnerable. This report establishes liquifaction criteria suited for the deisgn of new facilities and upgrade of existing facilities. The criteria developed herein presents reasonable performance standards balancing performance and damage minimizationagainst the cost of implementation.
