Boat Trailers Are Not One Size Fits All

Posted on Monday, September 26, 2016 in Dance

By J. Lloyd

Buying a boat is a dream come true for many. They provide a great outlet for getting away from it all, kicking back and relaxing. Buying the boat, however, isn’t where the shopping ends. Boat trailers are necessary purchases for anyone that wants to transport their new purchase from lake to lake or sea to sea. These handy devices aren’t one size fits all though.

Buying boat trailers isn’t at all unlike buying a boat itself. The options on the trailer market are pretty plentiful and some research will be necessary to make sure the trailer purchased is the right one for the boat in question. A trailer than handles a John boat, for example, likely won’t be the best for hauling a cabin cruiser. Trailers can run the gamut, too, from those with every imaginable bell and whistle to more simplistic versions. What works and what doesn’t for a particular boat and budget will be the biggest questions to address in advance.

Some things to consider when looking at boat trailers include:

* Size of the boat. This is a paramount concern when looking at trailers. It’s important to make sure the boat you’ve purchased will fit snuggly on the trailer. Look at manufacturer recommendations on size and weight before choosing a particular trailer over another.

* Safety features. Good trailers offer their buyers a number of safety features to ensure the boat, its owners and other people on the road are safe during transport. This can range from special locking mechanisms to break and turn lights. The lights, however, will likely be required by law, so it’s not a good idea to consider a trailer with this necessary feature.

* Ease features. There are manual boat trailers and then there are those that come with special devices to make loading and unloading a bit easier on their users. Adjustable trailers are chosen by many simply because it makes hauling a snap.

* Pricing. Boat trailers can cost a lot of money or they can be fairly inexpensive. It’s a good idea to decide on a budget before going out and shopping. A trailer with every bell and whistle might not fit a budget, but one that’s safe and secure very likely will be.

* Performance reports. There will be a lot riding on a trailer, so it’s a good idea to check the reputations of different makes and models before deciding to buy a particular brand. Check with consumer reporting agencies and even look up past reports from owners to see how trailers fare.

* Hauling vehicle. Some trailers are meant to work with any type of hauling vehicle, but others are designed more specifically to work with trucks. Make sure the trailer you’re looking at fits the vehicle in question.

Buying a boat can be a great way to get away from it all. There’s just something about hitting the open water to kick back and relax that helps make a week of workaday grind melt away. Whether it’s for sailing, cruising, skiing or fishing, however, all boats that will be transported need good boat trailers. Do some research in advance, and this purchase should be a snap.

Gay Talese on the state of journalism, Iraq and his life

Gay Talese on the state of journalism, Iraq and his life
Posted on Monday, September 26, 2016 in Uncategorized

Saturday, October 27, 2007

Gay Talese wants to go to Iraq. “It so happens there is someone that’s working on such a thing right now for me,” the 75-year-old legendary journalist and author told David Shankbone. “Even if I was on Al-Jazeera with a gun to my head, I wouldn’t be pleading with those bastards! I’d say, ‘Go ahead. Make my day.'”

Few reporters will ever reach the stature of Talese. His 1966 profile of Frank Sinatra, Frank Sinatra Has a Cold, was not only cited by The Economist as the greatest profile of Sinatra ever written, but is considered the greatest of any celebrity profile ever written. In the 70th anniversary issue of Esquire in October 2003, the editors declared the piece the “Best Story Esquire Ever Published.”

Talese helped create and define a new style of literary reporting called New Journalism. Talese himself told National Public Radio he rejects this label (“The term new journalism became very fashionable on college campuses in the 1970s and some of its practitioners tended to be a little loose with the facts. And that’s where I wanted to part company.”)

He is not bothered by the Bancrofts selling The Wall Street Journal—”It’s not like we should lament the passing of some noble dynasty!”—to Rupert Murdoch, but he is bothered by how the press supported and sold the Iraq War to the American people. “The press in Washington got us into this war as much as the people that are controlling it,” said Talese. “They took information that was second-hand information, and they went along with it.” He wants to see the Washington press corp disbanded and sent around the country to get back in touch with the people it covers; that the press should not be so focused on–and in bed with–the federal government.

Augusten Burroughs once said that writers are experience junkies, and Talese fits the bill. Talese–who has been married to Nan Talese (she edited James Frey‘s Million Little Piece) for fifty years–can be found at baseball games in Cuba or the gay bars of Beijing, wanting to see humanity in all its experience.

Russian choreographer Igor Moiseyev dies at age 101

Russian choreographer Igor Moiseyev dies at age 101
Posted on Monday, September 26, 2016 in Uncategorized

Friday, November 2, 2007

Igor Moiseyev, who has been widely acclaimed as the greatest 20th-century choreographer of folk dance, has died today after a long illness. He was 101 years old.

Born Igor Alexandrovich Moiseyev on January 21, 1906 in Kiev, Moiseyev graduated from the Bolshoi Theatre ballet school in 1924 and danced in the theatre until 1939. His first choreography in the Bolshoi was Footballer in 1930 and the last was Spartacus in 1954.

Since the early 1930s, he staged acrobatic parades on Red Square and finally came up with the idea of establishing the Theatre of Folk Art. In 1936, Vyacheslav Molotov put him in charge of the new dance company, which has since been known as the Moiseyev Ballet. Among about 200 dances he created for his company, some humorously represented the game of football and guerrilla warfare. After visiting Belarus he choreographed a Belarusian “folk” dance Bulba (“Potato”), which over the years indeed became a Belarusian folk dance. According to the Encyclopædia Britannica, Moiseyev’s work has been especially admired “for the balance that it maintained between authentic folk dance and theatrical effectiveness”.

Moiseyev was named People’s Artist of the USSR in 1953, Hero of Socialist Labor in 1976, received the Lenin Prize (1967, for the dance show A Road to the Dance), four USSR State Prizes (1942, 1947, 1952, 1985), Russian Federation State Prize (1996), was awarded numerous orders and medals of the Soviet Union, Spain, and many other countries. On the day of his centenary, Moiseyev became the first Russian to receive Order for the Merits before the Fatherland, 1st class — the highest civilian decoration of the Russian Federation.

Cheap Wedding Tips

Posted on Saturday, September 24, 2016 in Jewelry

Submitted by: Gabby Laine

Gabby Love stresses one to be creative in order to save on your wedding. A main way to cut cost could begin with the date and time of the wedding. Why not look at having the wedding on Friday evening, Saturday morning, or even Sunday afternoon?

This will still work with your guests schedules,and also qualify for a reduced rates at a church ,or reception hall because it is during off peak times. By having the wedding during off peak times saves money on food. Food for your guest is a main expense for the wedding, especially large weddings. If you really want to have food cost really reduced then have an evening wedding with a dessert-only reception. Also keep the overall guest list down to the minimum which will mean less food ,less work, and less invitations,which will result with less money on weddings.

Another key focus of expense is what to wear during the wedding and how to keep the cost down.

A. Look into renting wedding gowns instead of buying it. Rent a tux as well . Also check around to see if there is a business that will cater the whole wedding party for a much reduced rate.

B. Explore key bridal shops and get a sample wedding as well as the bridesmaid dresses from off the rack. This will also cut down the cost .

C. Look into borrowing shoes from your friends or family members. Hey, there are other people who were married and have shoes from their wedding just sitting in their closets that could match your dress.

D. Get in touch with the tuxedo rental stores and see if they are offering special discounts and specials. Some even offer free tux rental depending on the amount of tux rented. They may even offer free limousine service as well.

E. Find out if there are any friends or family members can sew. If so this could cut down the overall expenses for dresses for the bride and bridesmaid.

F. If the wedding is a casual wedding, the focus will be on color which means that the men could wear their own suits and the bridesmaids could wear their own dresses, all of which in the same color.

The above is just key suggestions offered to keep the overall cost of the wedding to a minimum. The wedding day is just what it means …day. Don’t put yourself in debt.

Rep. Hunter calls for hearings about alleged “cold-blooded killings” of civilians by U.S. Marines

Rep. Hunter calls for hearings about alleged “cold-blooded killings” of civilians by U.S. Marines
Posted on Saturday, September 24, 2016 in Uncategorized

Saturday, May 20, 2006

Duncan Hunter, a Republican member of the United States House of Representatives from California and the House Armed Services Committee chairman, said Thursday that the incident involving Marines firing on unarmed Iraqi civilians in the town of Haditha on 19 November 2005 will be subject to Congressional hearings as soon the criminal investigation is completed.

“If there were problems in the chain of command, if there was a cover up, if there was anything that wasn’t reported, let the chips fall where they may but don’t presume anything,” Mr. Hunter said.

The incident is the subject of an ongoing investigation by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service and Multi-National Forces Iraq. No official investigation report has been released yet.

Some military commanders have said that it appears the Marines did not follow the rules of engagement. “This report is going to be ugly,” one commander said.

John Murtha, a Pennsylvania Democrat and member of the House of Representatives, said earlier on Wednesday that what happened near the Iraqi town of Haditha was “much worse than was reported in Time magazine”. On March 21, Time reported that “U.S. Marines killed 15 Iraqi civilians in their homes”, including “seven women and three children”. Time also reported that U.S. troops were responding to an IED and insurgent fire.

Murtha, referring to preliminary military investigation reports, said, “There was no firefight. […] There was no IED that killed these innocent people. Our troops over-reacted because of the pressure on them. And they killed innocent civilians in cold blood.” He also said that the civilian death toll was 24 and not 15 as reported by Time magazine.

According to the New York Times, Murtha stated that he himself did not read official findings of the military inquiry, but had been told about the inquiry by commanders due to his background of military service and connections to its workings.

Marine Corps Central Command spokesperson Lt. Col. Sean Gibson would neither confirm nor deny Murtha’s charges.

Duncan Hunter said in response to Murtha on Friday “I don’t want to see these troops who have done such a magnificent job end up being portrayed in the American media by what comes out of the Haditha investigation”.

Captain of sunken cruise ship charged

Captain of sunken cruise ship charged
Posted on Saturday, September 24, 2016 in Uncategorized

Sunday, April 8, 2007

The captain and five of his crew on Sea Diamond have been charged following the cruise ship’s collision with a known and well-charted reef. The charges laid against the captain were “causing a shipwreck through negligence”. Additional charges of breaching shipping safety regulations and pollution were laid against the captain. All six accused were released shortly after questioning and their full testimony will be taken in the following weeks.

At the time of the crash the ship had been a few kilometers away from the dock under the spectacular cliffs that make Santorini one of Greece’s top tourist destinations. At the time of the collision the Sea Diamond was carrying more than 1,500 people, 1,154 passengers and 391 crew members.

The damaged vessel was quickly evacuated in a 3 hour operation, but it failed to find Jean-Christophe Allain, 45, and his 16 year old daughter, Maud, both from the Doué-la-Fontaine state in western France.

A 3 day search and rescue has failed to find them with officials stating that a robot submarine would investigate the wreck, which is lying under 330 feet (100 meters) of water, within the following weeks. The panicked evacuation soon brought to the fore memories of the September 2000 Express Samina ferry shipwreck of the island of Paros, killing 80 people.

The spokesman for the Cyprus based operator, Louis Cruise lines, read out a statement saying that the company was working closely with Greek investigators.

We would like to express our deep sorrow over the accident, and our thoughts are with the two missing people and their family. The Sea Diamond was fully up to date with its inspections. Whoever is responsible for this will be held accountable in the strictest way. Greece is a major tourism destination, and incidents like this must not be allowed to occur. … Authorities handled the rescue very well.

The Sea Diamond, a 21 year old vessel sank at the end of a four day cruise, which included visits to Rhodes, Patios, Crete and Mykonos islands. Officials at the Greek Tourism board went into damage control to lessen the impact on its industry which accounts for 18 percent of its GDP (Gross Domestic Product).

Home-invaders pose as NYC police

Home-invaders pose as NYC police
Posted on Saturday, September 24, 2016 in Uncategorized

Monday, July 16, 2007

In two separate incidents, men posing as members of the New York Police Department (NYPD), have invaded homes in the New York City area. In both cases, they robbed the residents, but in the most recent, they sexually assaulted a woman.

On Saturday, July 14, at 1:09 a.m. EDT (UTC-4), four men knocked on the door of a Yonkers, New York, apartment. The 33-year-old male that lives there opened the door, as the men outside wore NYPD hats and t-shirts, and had badges hanging around their necks.

The men promptly ordered the male victim to the floor. “When this guy pushed me, he had a gun in my face,” the victim said. “I could see the other guy. He motioned to the others, come on, let’s go, let’s go.” The intruders shouted “Where are the drugs?” as they ransacked the apartment.

Two of the men entered the bedroom and sexually assaulted the 30-year-old female. The couple has a five-year-old child, who was sleeping in another bedroom. “The more I resisted, the more he began to hit me,” the woman said. She said she was sexually assaulted by two of the men while her boyfriend was bound and guarded.

Frightened. Make you think twice before you want to open the door, you know

Police said the men then left with a cell phone, a laptop computer, a diamond ring and a gold chain. Police do not believe that they were real officers. As of this afternoon, no arrests have been made.

On Thursday, July 5, shortly after six p.m. in the East New York neighborhood of Brooklyn five men knocked on the door claiming to be “the police.” When the victims opened the door, they pushed their way in demanding the family give them drugs and money.

When police responded to a call reporting a robbery, they found the family, husband, wife and their daughter, tied up. The man suffered a head injury when he was pistol-whipped. Police say the robbers got away with a camera, jewelry, and US$5,000 in currency.

Neighbors told NY1 that they were stunned. “Frightened. Make you think twice before you want to open the door, you know,” said one of the neighbors. “Now you be asking for all this ID and stuff and even still you’re going to wonder, are they for real? So it’s kind of scary.”

There is no word about whether the two cases are connected. Yonkers is on the border of New York City, but is outside the jurisdiction of the NYPD.
