My office is still receiving emails from listeners who believe NPR deliberately chose to underplay the fact that the attacks took place in a gay nightclub, and continues to do so. Mark Memmott, NPR’s standards and practices editor, told me that “like in the early hours of any event, it took awhile to figure out what to say,” as reporters scrambled to confirm numerous details about what happened. He added, “I don’t think it can be said in our coverage that we were not very clear about the nightclub.” I agree..
Since i’m sad much of the time am i not supposed to do that? fuck this girl. She’s so harmful and insensitive. Also, her hypocrisy is mind blowing. BDD has no new content today as we have not yet received instruction from the Head of the Red Sox NESN New York Times Company Boston Globe WEEI Cartel that the Boston Herald’s Howard Bryant exposed to the world yesterday. If any of the other cartel members got today’s memo, please forward so we can carry out the not so secret agenda. Thank you..
The process of smoking initiationIt usually takes time for an individual to become a smoker, allowing for several opportunities for tobacco control interventions that can either focus on the prevention of experimentation or progression to higher smoking levels. There are identifiable cognitions (curiosity, weakening of intention not to smoke) that predict future smoking, whether it be first experimentation or progression to a higher level of smoking experience (eg, puffer, experimenter, to occasional and then regular smoker, etc).12 13 In high income countries such as the USA, there is good evidence that experimentation generally occurs between the ages of 10 24years.14 While some cultures have reported smoking at an earlier age, there is little evidence to suggest an uptake pattern in which never smokers start the initiation process after the age of 24years. Early experimentation and use is nearly always undertaken in a social context, which emphasises the importance of interventions focused on denormalising smoking.
The Rand Ban sunglasses were for sale for $150 on Paul’s website as recently as Tuesday. The website described the product as ‘the intersection of politics and cool.’ But the campaign didn’t have Ray Ban’s consent, and the company didn’t think that was cool. ‘We learned that the Rand Paul campaign had been selling Ray Ban sunglasses imprinted with the ‘Rand’ logo without our consent,’ Jane Lehman, who handles corporate media at Luxottica, Ray Ban’s public relations firm, wrote in an email to The Hill.
