I agree with you with the NOP poll. I can shoot another poll at you that says in January, 72% of people polled said that they felt that fox hunting should be illegal. So you can look at polls two ways. That way I could witness at first hand the results of the lawlessness and insecurity which rule this city, outweighing in most Iraqi eyes the benefits of the six month old American occupation.Up until 2200 it looked as though it was going to be a quiet evening for the Yarmouk 50 admissions, one dead on arrival and only a few critical cases.Then suddenly the whole ward filled with shocked humanity and crumpled, bloodied bodies.We arrived at 1700 to find four beds occupied in the emergency ward including a couple of kids who had hurt themselves falling over and Salam Ali Hussein, who had been the victim of an attempted carjacking.Mr Hussein had been passing through the Karada district when four men rushed up to his car, one of whom sprayed pepper spray, or CS, into his face.He held onto the wheel and received a head injury in the ensuing struggle. Some people from the neighbourhood then chased the thieves away.At 1715 the first new admission comes in (Patient 1) Adhib Abdul Hamid who has been hit by an AK47 bullet in his left shoulder.The shot must have been fired into the air some distance away perhaps during a wedding party and Mr Abdul Hamid wasunlucky enough to be standing in his doorway when the bullet landed there.Patient 3 arrives 10 minutes later with an identical wound in his right shoulder this time the unfortunate recipient is 13 year old Hussein Kadhim, who had been out in the street playing football.At 1750, Muyyad Nijm (Patient 8) is brought in with a bullet in his back. Of the three he is the only one whom doctors are able to treat in the emergency unit as the bullet is near the surface.
So here’s the problem: Many brands of eyeglasses are not made by brands that know how to make eyeglasses. Some name brands just contract out factories and they choose a few designs, make those models exclusive to their brand and bam. New eyeglass line.
This MediaPost writeup might be framed around NPR podcast’s smart speaker futures, but I’m more interested in this finding: “According to [NPM president Gina] Garrubbo, few of NPR’s podcast listeners skip sponsored messaging. In fact, 85% of listeners would prefer to listen to sponsored content rather than pay for a commercial free version. She also noted that NPR listeners will listen to a podcast for at least an hour, or even binge listen.”.
