Hi Teach -- This is heart-warming to see what David Beckham can do in his spare time. I'm not much into soccer and so had a mini-lesson today, as I wasn't faamilir with him either.But Mrs. Jim knew David Beckman. I'm with Gattina in that tattoos the athletes bear has gotten out of hand.Happy WW, mine is the same as yesterday, except I added a questionable pictorial denouement...denouement.

No suprises that out here in the hdrnenlatis of Bristol, I scored an 11. It missed a quick mart at the edge of my neighborhood but I think it misses stores if you are near a town line. For comparison, I put in the address of the hotel where we stayed on Van Ness Ave., in San Francisco. That scored an 83.

So it's a bunch of big box retailers ctcoenned by parking lots and lane-ways for delivery trucks. Calling the 21st century version of the 1970 s suburban mall a downtown is like thinking Guildford Town Centre is a real town centre or the centre of an actual town. This new place is a lifestyle centre for those who believe in the 3 car family lifestyle.

Looks like we can call off the dogs. I saw this post and followed the peotiitn link and also researched a bit more. what I found indicated that KC Metro is actually allowing this to happen, so I contacted Walkscore. Here is what they told me today: We are in the process of adding KC Metro and it should be up in a week or two. So good work!

Oh dear my poor husband! A therat in my house is to get one's head bitten. Considering the size of mine there is no damage possible! LOL!Keni The place is alive and will always be more beautiful. This painting is just a snapshot in time!Welcome Patrick! I am glad you enjoyed the post. Unfortunately nobody likes old buildings much over here. They are only occasionally restored. I live in a tourist town myself but here it is the building of monster houses on the water replacing the old ones!Hi Linda I will post this painting next week

It's good to see a high profile star giinvg something back. It may be a small gesture on his part but his high profile should bring greater attention to the people of Sierra Leone who have suffered terribly in recent years

Too much priority is given to eniretaintng the likes of Donald Trump and his golf course, and paying attention to Sir Ian Wood and his concreate everything that is green plans.Why not take Sir Wood's promise of a350 Million investment and use it to tackle exactly the problems you have highlighted in this blog, run down looking streets etc. That and turning a wonderful building in the Marschial College that could have made an incredible museum, or attraction into a ego-centric council headquarters. It will cost more to demolish the old' concreate headquarters across the road, because of it's position and the materials it is made out of than it did to revitalise Marschial College, at the expense of the tax payer. Priorities need to change. Aberdeen is a disproportionately expensive city to live in as it is, why not make it the best it can be.

παραδειγμα, σχετικα με το job position:Στην αμερικη σημερα στον κλαδο eninegering, οπου οι γυναικες εργαζονται σε ποσοστο 30%.Ο αρχικος μισθος των γυναικων (0-3 χρονια υπηρεσιας) ειναι στο 96% των ανδρων. Αυξανει με τα χρονια και μετα 10 χρονια υπηρεσιας το ποσοστο γινεται 89%. Αυτο ομως που κατακρημνιζει τις απολαβες ειναι τα bonus που στις γυναικες δινονται περιπου τα μισα απ' ότι στους ανδρες.Αλλο παραδειγμα απο τη wall street:women working on Wall Street make 71 cents on the dollar compared with men who have the same experience and same credentials doing the same jobs. Those findings echo the US Census Bureau's 2007 American Community Survey, which reports that women in finance and insurance occupations earn just 55.2 percent of what men do.The more successful women in the sample (οf the survey) went into sales and trading "where their contributions would be measurable," . They also avoided relationship-oriented positions in favor of those that involved client deliverables, such as issuing asset-backed securities, she adds. Despite such strategies, the pay gap persists.Tι να πω!

Thanks for the help. Here is how it fits into the chapter: We can look back on two coiantstnrg predictions for the fate of public policy in Scotland after devolution. First, we might have expected a lot of activity and policy divergence. The famous phrase ‘Scottish solutions for Scottish problems’ sums up the idea that Scotland has distinct policy problems that require distinctive solutions, and perhaps that these solutions can only be produced in a devolved Scotland with dedicated policymaking institutions. It also suggests (although we are asking a lot from a five-word phrase) that a shift from the absence to the presence of those institutions would produce an avalanche of new and exciting policies after devolution. Second, we might have expected a net reduction in activity, as a relatively conservative Scotland breaks free from UK government policy processes characterised by constant policy innovation. A vote for devolution may have been ‘a vote to change institutions in order to stay the same’ (Mitchell, 2005: 26–7); a way to avoid policy change driven by the UK Government, in the context of the idea that devolution in 1979 could have saved Scotland from the worst excesses of Thatcherite policies (McCrone and Lewis, 1999: 17; McGarvey and Cairney: 32-9).These coiantstnrg visions are important reference points when we come to assess the difference that devolution has made to public policy. As with all public policy evaluation, this is not an objective process. Rather, we try to gauge the success and failure of policy by questioning the extent to which it lives up to our expectations. In the Scottish case, we either expect a great deal of change or very little; our expectations are likely to be unfulfilled if we expect a lot (as in the discussion of new politics in chapter 1) or we might be pleasantly surprised if we expect very little (which is perhaps the key to a contented life). The tendency in the Scottish policy literature is to identify unrealistic expectations, largely to point out that they were not fulfilled (see for example, Keating et al, 2003; McGarvey and Cairney, 2008: 199). It also reflects the wider finding in the policy literature that policy change tends to be incremental in most political systems. While many contemporary theories of public policy seek to explain major policy change, they do so on the understanding that it is rare; that incremental change is the norm (Cairney, 2012). Of course, ‘policy divergence’ is not the same as ‘policy change’. The former suggests that the policies of two political systems are moving, or moving further, apart, while the latter suggests that policy in one system is moving away from policy in its past. Therefore, we may have significant policy change in Scotland without it marking divergence (as when both governments pursued legislation on anti-social behaviour), or moderate change in Scotland may help produce divergence if policy changes radically in England (as when the UK Government introduced tuition fees of up to a39000 shortly after the Scottish Government abolished the graduate endowment). Further, that divergence may only be temporary – a process that we can link to an even more famous phrase ‘laboratory of democracy’ (used to describe policy diffusion across US states). In other words, policy may diverge in the short term, only to converge in the long term as each government learns lessons from the other and seeks to emulate its decisions. Or, in many cases, UK government policies have a direct or indirect effect on Scottish policies which often limits divergence or causes convergence (particularly when both governments are led by the same party). In this light, we have good reasons to hold very limited expectations about policy divergence in Scotland: few of us really believed that there would be a rush to major policy change (now that we have the benefit of hindsight); governments in all political systems face constraints on their ability to change policy; change in Scotland may not cause policy divergence; and, even if it does, that divergence may be replaced by convergence in the longer term. To explore these issues, the chapter is set out as follows .
