If you've ever done any painting before, you know it's virtually impossible to avoid a few drips and splatters. Occasionally, those drips and splatters can become a flood in cases where an entire can of paint is accidentally overturned or tipped. Fortunately, there is a way to avoid splattering or spilling paint all over your beautiful hardwood floors or favorite bookcase. Drop cloths and tarps provide protection for a variety of painting and sanding tasks, whether you're repainting your entire house inside and out, touching up a wall or redoing the ceiling of your porch.
El Alberto lies 800 miles south of the US border in the state of Hidalgo. It's pretty much like any other town of 3,000 people, except in El Alberto they offer tourists the chance to participate in a simulated illegal border crossing. It all happens at a standard recreational park with swimming pools, river trips, zip lines, and the other typical fare.
Anthony Davis who? With the 2012 NBA Draft lottery around the corner and the draft itself just a month a way, a sexy sports hotties mock is long overdue. Teams clamor at the opportunity to snag a franchise-altering athlete and become agitated if they miss their mark or select a bona fide bust. But that's not something we have to worry about here, because let's face it, everyone's a winner in this edition.
The bow tie is a type of men's necktie. It consists of a ribbon of fabric tied around the collar in a symmetrical manner such that the two opposite ends form loops. The traditional bow tie, consisting of a strip of cloth which the wearer has to tie by hand, may be known as a self-tie, tie-it-yourself, or freestyle bow tie to distinguish it from these. Bow ties may be made of any fabric material, but most are made from silk, polyester, cotton, or a mixture of fabrics. Some fabrics (e.g., wool) are much less common for bow ties than for ordinary four-in-hand neckties. Ready-tied bow ties are available, in which the distinctive bow is sewn into shape and the band around the neck incorporates a clip. Some clip-ons dispense with the band altogether, instead clipping to the collar.
Liver cancer is a cancer that originates in the liver. Liver cancers are malignant tumors that grow on the surface or inside the liver. Liver tumors are discovered on medical imaging equipment (often by accident) or present themselves symptomatically as an abdominal mass, abdominal pain, jaundice, nausea or liver dysfunction. Liver cancers should not be confused with liver metastases, which are cancers that originate from organs elsewhere in the body and migrate to the liver. Since hepatitis B or C is one of the main causes of liver cancer, prevention of this infection is key to then prevent liver cancer. Thus, childhood vaccination against hepatitis B may reduce the risk of liver cancer in the future. In the case of patients with cirrhosis, alcohol consumption is to be avoided.
The Nissan Altima is a mid-size automobile manufactured by Nissan, and is arguably a continuation of the Nissan Bluebird line, which began in 1957. It has historically been larger, more powerful, and more luxurious than the Nissan Sentra but less so than the Nissan Maxima. In 1993, Nissan discontinued its much-criticized Stanza, replacing it with the US-made Altima, while remaining a compact car. The very first Altima rolled off the assembly line on June 15, 1992, as a 1993 model. All Altimas had been built in Smyrna, Tennessee, until June 2004, when Nissan's Canton, Mississippi, plant began producing additional Altimas to meet high demand. A redesigned Nissan Altima is coming at the end of summer 2012 for the 2013 model year.
Huge props to the guys at The Chive for putting that together. $143k in one day is absolutely fucking mind boggling.
One member of the United States Armed Forces got an unusual welcome home from the Metropolitan Police Department in Washington D.C. -- while Army Sgt. Matthew Corrigan was sound asleep inside his Northwest D.C. home, the Metropolitan Police Department were preparing to launch a full-scale invasion of his home. SWAT and explosive ordnance disposal teams spent four hours readying the assault on the basement apartment, without bothering to get a warrant. Sergeant Corrigan was woken in the middle of the night, forced out of his home, arrested, had his home ransacked, had his guns seized and was thrown in jail -- where he was lost in the prison system for two weeks -- all because the District refuses to recognize the meaning of the Second Amendment. Nothing to see here, citizen. Move along...
Candelabra is the traditional term for a set of multiple decorative candlesticks, each of which often holds a candle on each of multiple arms or branches connected to a column or pedestal. A single member of such a set is known as a candelabrum. Although the electrification of interior lighting has relegated candleholders to the status of backup light sources in most homes and other buildings of the modern era, interior designers continue to model light fixtures and lighting accessories after candelabra and candlesticks. Accordingly, the term candelabra has entered common use as a collective designation for small-based incandescent light bulbs used in chandeliers and other lighting fixtures designed to provide decoration as well as illumination.
