Ralphs Grocery Company was founded in 1873 by George Albert Ralphs. The original store was located at Sixth and Spring Streets in Los Angeles, California. In the 20th century, Ralphs became a grocery pioneer, offering self-service markets with checkout stands in distributed locations. The company employed notable architects in designing its stores, and the former Ralphs Grocery Store building built in 1929 in Westwood Village has been photographed by Ansel Adams, declared a Historic Cultural Monument, and listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Ralphs Grocery Company has contracts with the United Food and Commercial Workers, the largest grocery union in the United States. In late 2003 and early 2004, Ralphs locked out its workers who were members of the UFCW in sympathy with competitor Vons (in Southern California, after the UFCW had declared a strike against Vons.

A hand truck, also known as a two wheeler, is an L-shaped box-moving handcart with handles at one end, wheels at the base, with a small ledge to set objects on, flat against the floor when the hand-truck is upright. The objects to be moved are tilted forward, the ledge is inserted underneath them, and the objects allowed to tilt back and rest on the ledge. Then the truck and object are tilted backward until the weight is balanced over the large wheels, making otherwise bulky and heavy objects easier to move. It is a first-class lever.

Long time reader....blah, blah, blah...(insert obligatory stick figure comment here). As I was perusing a web story about the Paris deal, I came across a couple of pictures of armed tactical cops, as they were securing the streets of Paris.. What kind of rifles these guys carrying? They look straight out of WW2. I figured if anyone could easily identify what they are, it would be you. Marc
Easy-peasy. You're looking at the Mini-14, which is a small, lightweight semi-automatic carbines manufactured by the U.S. firearms company Sturm & Ruger. Ruger offered a selective fire variant of the Mini-14, called the AC-556, to police and military customers. AC-556 models have a slightly longer receiver to allow for full automatic operation.
Introduced in the late 1990s by Argentine firearms manufacturer Bersa, the Thunder 380 is a lightweight, relatively small semi-automatic pistol series chambered in the popular .380 ACP caliber. It is mostly similar in design to the compact Beretta 70 pistol, however it does have a few similarities and design features in common with the Walther PPK as well, although the Bersa sells for about half the price of both. The nearly straight-in alignment of the chamber and the topmost cartridge in the magazine seems to be responsible for the pistol's reliable chambering and cycling almost any type of ammunition. There are several safety features built into the Thunder 380: a slide mounted manual safety and decocker that blocks the hammer, a magazine disconnect safety that prevents firing if a magazine is not inserted, a long double-action first trigger pull, an inertial firing pin, and in later models an integral key-operated trigger lock. Do I recommend the Bersa Thunder? Well, here is the Boss Lady's carry piece and here is one I keep in a hidden location of my house, sealed up for emergencies. So scroll down to the Bersa Thunder 380 Limited Edition Kit, which includes a Bersa Thunder 380 pistol with a matte black finish installed with 7-round magazine and rubber wraparound grips. It also comes with a set of checkered walnut grips bearing the Bersa logo, an extra 9-round magazine, an 8-piece cleaning kit, leather concealment holster and a black nylon case.
