Hydraulic fracturing is a well-stimulation technique in which rock is fractured by a pressurized liquid. The process involves the high-pressure injection of fracking fluid -- primarily water, containing sand or other proppants suspended with the aid of thickening agents -- into a wellbore to create cracks in the deep-rock formations through which natural gas, petroleum, and brine will flow more freely. When the hydraulic pressure is removed from the well, small grains of hydraulic fracturing proppants (either sand or aluminium oxide) hold the fractures open. Increases in seismic activity following hydraulic fracturing along dormant or previously unknown faults are sometimes caused by the deep-injection disposal of hydraulic fracturing flowback. For these reasons, hydraulic fracturing is under international scrutiny, restricted in some countries, and banned altogether in others.
Whether you use your bike to commute, run errands or take longer trips, you'll need a way to carry essentials, from a small repair kit to full-on camping gear. A daypack or messenger bag is good for shorter trips, but some of your best gear-carrying options are racks, baskets and bags that fit on your bike. Most frame bags attach to the top tube of your bike and are sized to keep food, phones, tools and other essentials within easy reach. Larger frame bags for bikepacking and touring can hold hydration reservoirs. As some roads are quite rough, it also makes sense to distribute your load evenly on both sides of your bike, to maintain stability when turning.
Two all-beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese, pickles, onions—on a sesame seed bun. The Big Mac's anthem, made famous by its signature '70s jingle, is firmly engrained in the collective consciousness of meat-eating America. But these days the traditional hamburger as we've known it has been co-opted by an unusual assortment of add-ons. Are our beloved burgers forever evolving beyond the classics toward an endless stack of superlatives? Old and busted: Avocado Burger Buns from FoodDeco. The new hotness: Pokémon Cheeseburgers from Sydney's Down-N-Out.
So I might have to buy a new set of tires for The Boss Lady's A6 and according to the sign in the window, this place will not be undersold. So if I'm looking for the best deal, where am I headed to?
Hey Ernie; The girl is walking down Jefferson Street in San Francisco. You can see the entrance to Joe's Crab Shack and the Fisherman's Wharf Parking sign on the street view. The store she is in front of has changed since the photo was taken, but I'd be willing to bet your left nut that is where she is. And like I said last week - get better already! Ron

Willis Carrier is credited with inventing modern air conditioning in 1902. In 1915 Carrier, along with six other engineers, pooled together $32,600 to form the Carrier Engineering Corporation. In 1920 they purchased their first plant in Newark, New Jersey. The corporation bearing his name succeeded in marketing its air conditioner to the residential market in the 1950s, which led to formerly sparsely populated areas such as the American Southwest becoming home to sprawling suburbs. As of 2012, Carrier was a $12.5 billion company with over 43,000 employees serving customers in 170 countries on six continents.
Ravishing supermodel, Padma Lakshmi, is best known today as the no-nonsense host of Bravo's hit TV show, “Top Chef,” where her culinary expertise and opinions can make or break the aspirations of competing young chefs.
