American Chemistry Council gives

Adam Parmer, spokesman for the campaign to turn back the Seattle ordinance, said the money given over the weekend will pay for radio ads and direct mail efforts against Referendum 1, which goes before voters Aug. 18.

It’s the single largest contribution to a local ballot measure in recent history, according to Seattle Ethics and Elections Commission staff.

The money comes from the Progressive Bag Affiliates of the Virginia based American Chemistry Council, the prime backers of the Coalition to Stop the Bag Tax, which last year gave the campaign about $239,0 Burberry Outlet 00.

The campaign began placing anti bag fee ads on the Inter Burberry Outlet net over the weekend, Parmer said, and radio ads should start airing this week.

Mayor Greg Nickels proposed and the City Council approved the bag fee to encourage the use of reusable bags and reduce waste. The ordinance was put on hold when opponents gathe Burberry Outlet red enough signatures to put the measure to a public vote. city to target plastic and paper.

Backers of the ordinance said their opponent’s cash boost does not alter their plans.

“It’s what we were anticipating from the outset,” said Rob Gala of the Seattle Green Bag Campaign, which has so far raised about $65,000. “We see that this vote is essentially about one of the world’s largest polluters telling a city what it can and cannot do in terms of waste reduction.”

The $500,000 deposit is the largest to a Seattle ballot measure in at least a decade. It exceeds two donations of $400,000 plus in 2006 to Seattle Citizens for Free Speech from strip club operators who fought successfully to repeal the city’s strip club ordinance.

Still, the anti Burberry Outlet bag fee campaign’s total of nearly $750,000 falls short of the Free Speech campaign’s total for 2006 of $861,000, as well as the anti monorail Yes on I 83 campaign’s total for 2004 of $892,000.

Gary Pickering and colleagues note that trace amounts of chemicals called alkyl methoxypyrazines (MPs) are generally negative to wine quality, masking the desirable fruity and floral flavors and giving wine an unpleasant green taste. With the wine industry still searching for a way of reducing MP levels, the scientists decided to look at the effects of wine packaging and closures like corks and screw caps.

They added MPs to red and white wines and monitored levels of MPs for 18 months in wine packaged in boxes and bottles with natural cork, synthetic cork, or screw caps. Boxed wine had less MPs up to 45 percent less than any other packaging. Bottles sealed with synthetic cork and screw caps performed best, with natural corks associated with the highest levels of MPs. One concern with the boxed wine, however, was evidence of greater oxidation of the wine, which itself is undesirable during wine storage.

New research do Burberry Outlet cuments a surprising chemical weapon used by some Amazonian poison frogs. The study identified for the first time a family of poisons never before known to exist in these brightly colored creatures or elsewhere in nature: the N methyldecahydroquinolines. The report is scheduled for the June 26 issue of ACS’ Journal of Natural Products, a monthly publication.

H. Martin Garraffo and colleagues note there are more than 500 alkaloids, potentially toxic substances, known to exist in the skin of poison frogs of the family Dendrobatidae. Frogs use them as a chemical defense to discourage predators from biting and eating them. Western Colombian natives have used skin ext Burberry Outlet racts from another group of frogs, unrelated to those in the new study, to coat blow darts for hunting.

Frogs get nearly all of the alkaloids from their diet, remov Burberry Outlet ing alkaloids from ants, mites, small beetles, millipedes and possibly other small arthropods, concentrating them with incredible efficiency, and storing them in their skin. However, Garraffo’s group was not certain about the origin of the newly discovered N methyldecahydroquinolines, which could also be produced in the frogs’ own bodies. Feeding experiments with alkaloids fed to captive frogs are planned, which might settle this point.

The scientists analyzed alkaloids from the skin of 13 of the more than 25 species of the genus Ameerega of poison frogs. They identified the new toxins in the frogs as being of the N methyldecahydroquinoline class, which were present among several other alkaloids.

National Institute of Diabetes and Digestive and Kidney DiseasesWith sustainability emerging as a top priority for Burberry Outlet businesses and industries, a workshop of 40 experts has identified and published a set of recommendations for businesses to overcome the nontechnical barriers to applying sustainable industrial practices. Their article is scheduled for the June 15 issue of ACS’ , a semi monthly journal.

In the article, Martin A. Abraham and colleagues point out that important scientific, or technical, advances are occurring in green chemistry and green engineering. These enable industry to embrace more environmentally friendly processes that minimize the use of potentially toxic substances, for instance, and produce less waste. Despite such technical advances, other barriers to implementing sustainable practices remain.

The American Chemical Society and the American Institute of Chemical Engineers convened the workshop to identify approaches for overcoming these nontechnical hurdles to implementing sustainability often defined as the ability to meet present needs without compromising those of future generations. The group identified five major approaches to overcoming barriers, which include economic, regulatory, educational and cultural factors. One, for instance, involves a shift in mindset in which business executives view sustainability not just as regulatory compliance but as a pathway to innovation.

More travelers could have to pay to check bags under changes announced Tuesday to the US Airways and American Airlines frequent flier prog Burberry Outlet rams. But they may also be able to book flights on more days with their miles.

Suzanne Rubin, American vice president for its loyalty program, said the changes are moving the combined airline closer Burberry Outlet to a single rewards program, and to industry standard benefits.

Some of those changes are likely to rankle travelers, some of whom have been watching closely to see how the December merger affects their frequent flier benefits.

Gold and Platinum members under the US Airways Dividend Miles program will receive two free checked bags, down from three. AAdvantage Gold members will get one free checked bag, down from two.

For most domestic flights booked by those without frequent traveler status, US Airways will continue to charge $25 for the first checked bag, $35 for the second.

But US Airways customers who hold the airline Mastercard credit card, which comes with a $79 annual fee, will receive one free checked bag starting April 30.

Some of the changes will be more popular with travelers. US Airways has eliminated blackout days for travelers using Dividend Miles to book last seat availability. And customers will also be able to check two bags for free on flights to and from South America starting April 23 for US Airways.

US Airways will offer members of the armed fo Burberry Outlet rces five checked bags for free when traveling on orders and three free checked bags for personal travel.

US Airways and American together account for more than 90 percent of daily flights at Charlotte Douglas International Airport, the combined airline second busiest hub.

Though the two carriers officially merged last year, they aren expected to fully combine their operations for more than a year. Until then, as they gradually work towards full integration, the airlines are operating under their respective names.

American is moving to a three tiered system for redeeming its miles. AAnytime reward customers will be able to book flights starting at 20,000 miles on off peak travel days, down from the current 25,000 miles. Redemption for last minute flights will start at 30,000 miles, and redemption for flights on peak travel days will start at 50,000 miles.

Travelers using an AAnytime award won receive free checked bags any longer. Neither will customers flying on legacy American Airlines flights who booked a full fare economy ticket.

In an example of your workout, at about what pace do you hit a speed bag (number of times in one second). Well, I don’t really know. That would depend on bag size and inflation. an 8×5 overinflated bag will go much faster than a larger size bag, or one with less air.

My name is Lester Burnham. This is my neighborhood. This is my street. This is my life. I am 42 years old. In less than a year, I will be dead. Of course, I don’t know that yet, and in a way, I’m dead already. Look at me, jerking off in the shower. This will be the highlight of my day. It’s all downhill from he Burberry Outlet re Burberry Outlet . That’s my wife Carolyn. See the way the handle on those pruning shears match her gardening clogs? That’s not an accident. That’s our neighbor, Jim, and that’s his lover, Jim. Man, I get exhausted just watching her. She wasn’t always like this. She used to be happy. We used to be happy. My daughter, Jane. Only child. Janie’s a pretty typical teenager angry, insecure, confused. I wish I could tell her that’s all going to pass, but I don’t want to lie to her. Both my wife and daughter think I’m this gigantic loser. And they’re right. I have lost something. I’m not exactly sure what it is, but I know I didn’t always feel this sedated. But you know what? It’s never too late to get it back.

Smile! You’re at Mr. Smiley’s.

It’s a great thing when you realize you still have the ability to surprise yourself. Makes you wonder what else you can do that you’ve forgotten about.

Remember those posters that said, “Today is the first day of the rest of your life”? Well, that’s true of every day but one the day Burberry Outlet you die.

I had always heard your entire life flashes in front of your eyes the second before you die. First of all, that one second isn’t a second at all. It stretches on forever, like an ocean of time. For me, it was lying on my back at Boy Scout Camp, watching falling stars. [Gunshot] And yellow leaves from the maple trees that lined our street. [Gunshot] Or my grandmother’s hands, and the way her skin seemed like paper. And the first time I saw my cousin Tony’s brand new Firebird. And Janie, and Janie. And Carolyn. I guess I could be pretty pissed off about what happened to me, but it’s hard to stay mad when there’s so much beauty in the world. Sometimes I feel like I’m seeing it all at once, and it’s too much. My heart fills up like a balloon that’s about to burst. And then I remember to relax, and stop trying to hold on to it, and then it flows through me like rain, and I can’t feel anything but gratitude for every single moment of my stupid little life. You have no idea what I’m talking about, I’m sure. But don’t worry. You will someday.

[To Jane] Honey, I’m so proud of you. I watched you very closely! You didn’t screw up once!

[To herself] Stop it! Shut up! You’re weak! You baby! Shut up!

My company sells an image. It’s part of my job to live that image.

[To Jane] You cannot count on anyone except yourself.

[to Janey] Do you want to see the most beautiful thing I’ve ever filmed? It was one of those days when it’s a minute away from snowing, and there’s this electricity in the air, you can almost hear it. And this bag was just, dancing with me, like a little kid beggin’ me to play with it for fifteen minutes. And that’s the day I realized that there was this entire life behind things, and this incredibly benevolent force that wanted me to know that there was no reason to be afraid, ever. Video’s a poor excuse, I know. But it helps me remember I need to remember. Sometimes, there’s so much beauty in the world I feel like I can’t take it, like my heart is just going to cave in.

[To Angela, after she calls Jane ugly] Yes you are. And you’re boring. And totally ordinary. And you know it.

In order to be successful, one must project an image of success at all times.

Janie: Sorry I’m late.

Carolyn: No, that’s quite all right, dear. Your father and I were just discussing his day at work. Pass the asparagus.

Carolyn: [laughing] Your father seems to think this kind of behavior is something to be proud of!

Lester: And your mother seems to prefer I go through life like a fucking prisoner while she keeps my dick in a Mason jar under the sink.

Carolyn: How dare you speak to me that way in front of her. And I marvel that you can be so contemptuous of me, on the same day that you lose your job.

Lester: I didn’t lose it. It’s not like, “Whoops! Where’d my job go?” I quit! Pass the asparagus.

Carolyn: Oh! Oh! Oh! And I want to thank you for putting me under the added pressure of being the sole breadwinner now!

Lester: I already have a job.

Carolyn: No, no, don’t give a second thought as to who’s gonna pay the mortgage. We’ll just leave it all up to Carolyn! You mean you’re gonna take care of everything now, Carolyn? Yes. I don’t mind, I really don’t. You mean everything? You don’t mind having the sole responsibility, your husband feels he can just quit his job and you don’t

Lester: [overlapping] Will someone please pass me the fucking asparagus?

Jane: [standing] Okay, guys, I’m not gonna be a part of this.
