upright position during the fall convulse the spectators, who applaud not the
frustrated achievement but the premeditated failure. This comical and faked fall
brings me ...

lead system of yarding logs had slowly been replaced with the high lead method.
A climber would climb up a tall, sturdy tree, cutting its limbs on the way up. At

And while our nation promotes itself at home and abroad as the world leader in
technology and education, when it comes to our vital infrastructure, we are a
prime example of inefficiency and misinformation, with a top-to-bottom
governmental system that chooses to ignore one of our nation's most pressing
problems. As Michael Keeley, a former Los Angeles deputy mayor, stated about
city administration, we need to think of government “as a big bus” which is “
divided into different ...
