FARMER: Yeah, they thought they had the support. In fact, they said they had signed cards from a majority of VW’s 1500 or so blue collar workers, but now it appears some folks changed their minds once it came to a secret ballot. Ultimately, you had about 43 votes that made all the difference..
I’m usually a guy who leans towards drinking wines younger but this is the only wine I’ve had in the past few years that I know, without a doubt, I’ve opened too young. It is delicious but those tannins just need some considerable time to soften up. The tannins are fine but quite astringent.

The proper case forwar should have been, simply and proudly, self defence against a terrorist government, whether it had WMDs or not, in order to prevent future September 11s or worse.

AbstractBackground Successful recanalization (TICI 2b) using mechanical thrombectomy (MT) with stent retriever devices is associated with good outcomes in the treatment of ischemic stroke. Preclinical TICI flow assessement is challenging due to the difficulty of consistently occluding selected blood vessels in vivo using lab created thrombus. We describe the development of a discrete occlusive porcine clot model for predictable and repeatable assessment of TICI flow restoration and treatment effects on the vessels at the 3 day and 28 day timepoints and following MT..
