Where they occurred, the light rains wetted fine-textured fuels such as grasses and weeds and thus temporarily lowered the risk of accidental starts from sparks. Larger fuels (limbs and logs three inches and above in size) were impacted very little.
You get geared up for that, and then to find out that the market is temporarily taken away because someone from New York state with a small shipment messed up — well, it's disheartening, frustrating and maddening.
The egocentric person is always enthusiastic about getting behind - or involved - in a cause, an issue or a movement as long as the focus is on him and what he himself as an individual is doing to help. However, the minute the focus shifts back to the cause, issue or movement itself, then the egoist is no longer interested in helping or being involved, hence confirming a hypocrisy that his help was never about the cause itself.
Now they're limited to the amount of litter they can apply so they have a bill for the additional nitrogen as an inorganic form. They also have the extra litter that needs to be stored or transported off their farm.
My Ph.D. thesis concerned the metabolic mechanism by which the end product of nitrogen metabolism in the earthworm is switched from ammonia to urea during starvation. I remember spending my nights collecting over 5,000 worms from the University campus green.
Nitrogen levels in the soil are high after peas. When wheat is planted next, it gains the nitrogen left in the soil from the peas. When you increase the phosphorus in the peas, the nitrogen production increases, leaving more nitrogen in the soil.
We have a seven-year rotation. Three years of clover and grass where we're building nitrogen and increasing the fertility, followed by four arable crops - wheat, followed by oats, then beans and either rye or barley.
We are now producing a significant amount of oil from the North Slope of Alaska, all (with) environmentally sound technology, ... That environment has not been disrupted ... it's in as good a shape as before we ever put a drill in there.
If we sold the Park Slope house, Kevin could afford to take a year off from work and spend more time with the kids and he could help me start my consulting business. We put the Park Slope house on the market in April 2004, and it sold in 10 seconds.
That was a good group and these guys have played in their shadows since they were in Mustang and Bronco. They're not in anybody's shadow any longer — everyone around them is in their shadow now. We'll see how they react and so far they've been doing well.
For more than 40 years, eight million Mustang owners have made this car a legend and a part of our national culture. The new Mustang inspires just as much passion, and we're deeply honored that the Friends of the Automotive History Collection recognize this and are honoring it with this award.
We have a strong team working on the Mustang program, and they've achieved a major milestone by getting production unit one off the ground a month early, ... The Mustang team laid the foundation for this success in the early assembly and use of production tooling to build these first aircraft, significantly decreasing the amount of rework and squawks. In addition, systems installation and functional testing progressed well ahead of schedule.
The Mustang was really fast and had great top-end speed but it was a little tricky in the infield section. We could run guys down on the oval section and but some of the smaller cars had a little easier time in the infield. It made for a lot of great battles and a day full of action for us.
