The idea of keeping DeGrom for next year for a maybe chance at the wildcard is foolish. The Mets could easily command 3 or 4 top prospects for just him alone. The sell and rebuild model is clearly a successful method; see Astros and Royals for small market, the Cubs for medium to large market and the Yankees as a large market example..
And then our luck changed. A Henslow’s sparrow sat in a dead shrub near the road and sang his quiet tsi lick hiccup of a song. He was so close that we could watch him open his beak and sing over and over. Any transgression will be my last.Speaking of remittances, whoever in the federal government designed the GST never ran a small business. While large businesses have the resources to process their GST at relatively little cost, for a small business the GST involves meticulously recording every expenditure and revenue on a monthly or quarterly basis and only original receipts are accepted.Every firm earning a paltry $30,000 or more must file the GST, and once registered to the GST system you cannot leave (making it the Hotel California of the tax system) even if your income falls below this threshold a significant incentive for firms to stay very small. GST submissions are so burdensome and complex, in fact, that specialized firms have sprung up to handle the paperwork (at a cost, of course).No wonder a 2014 survey by the Canadian Federation of Independent Businesses found that the number two complaint held by 72 percent of its members is about government regulation and the burden of paperwork (the number one complaint cited by 78 percent of firms was high taxes).
To test a person for stroke, the Mayo Clinic recommends “thinking FAST.” The FAST acronym stands for “face,” “arms,” “speech” and “time.” First, ask the person to smile and check to see if one side of his or her face droops on attempt. Second, ask the person to raise both arms. See if one droops back down or if the person is unable to lift one arm or the other.
I also dry the resulting almond meal. I spread it on a baking tray and pop it in a warm oven (I set the oven to low and turn it off as soon as it reaches that temp 90 C I believe). I stir the meal and reheat the oven about 3 or 4 times until the meal is very dry.
Of course, human appreciation the Eastern White Pine long precedes that European imperial tussling and Yankee commoditization. Native Americans depended on the trees for much more than their wood. Their Vitamin C rich needles can be made into a tisane, or “herbal tea.” The inner bark, called the cambium, can be beaten into a flour extender in hard times.
