The International Space

The International Space Station is arguably the most complex and difficult international engineering and construction project ever undertaken. Through NASA’s leadership, America has engaged some of the best scientific and technical minds from around the world to oakley standard issue build an orbiting research laboratory for peaceful purposes that hopefully will yield new breakthroughs in scientific and medical research. Retiring the Space Shuttle, transitioning to commercial services to support the Space Station, and developing the new Crew Exploration Vehicle, capable of returning to discount oakley sunglasses the Moon and later to Mars will create new challenges, new opportunities and new discoveries.We’ll get back to that later. First, meet Lacy, Page, Pounce, Kiki and Molly, her four-legged friends who have become like family. Pounce, a Jack Russell Terrier, lives oakley store up to his name. He’s the only male among the five. Lacy and Page, Cavalier King Charles Spaniels, are adorable lapdogs. Page is the more outgoing of the two; Lacy is shy and skittish. Kiki’s a friendly Italian Greyhound who manages a perfect fake oakleys downward-facing dog-yoga stretch despite possessing legs as thin as chopsticks. Molly is interested in walking only until she has undertaken the main business of the outing, and then she wants to go home.Rep. Bart Gordon (D-Tenn.) blew away his competition, winning the oakley prescription glasses race for fastest male member of the House for the 19th time with a time around 18 minutes and 30 seconds. Ensign won the Senate crown. Expert marathoner Rep. Jean Schmidt (R-Ohio) predictably won the House female competition, though Rep. Jane Harman (D-Calif.), oakley sunglasses her exercise hairdo nearly as flawless as her office coif, made a good showing. And as the only female senator in the competition, Kay Bailey Hutchison (R-Texas), who approached the finish line around the 40-minute mark surrounded by approximately 10 of her staffer oakley flak jacket teammates in what appeared to be full makeup, won her category. Political junkies might find the next step sunglass hut to be difficult. The suite is set up without TV or newspaper access. Instead, guests receive a non-political book or access to non-political board games. The package includes a $40 breakfast credit and a $130 credit at the spa, which features a “BlackBerry Balm Hand Massage.” Sen. John Ensign (R-Nev.), in running shorts and aerodynamic sunglasses, jogged to the starting line of Wednesday’s 27th annual ACLI Capital cheap oakley sunglasses Challenge road race, ostensibly a friendly competition among members of Congress, executive-branch employees, judges and journalists.“[The running mate is] probably not going to be from the Congress,” he said, adding that a former administration official or a governor would be a more eyeglasses likely choice.He declined to comment on specific individuals.Boehner said it made little difference to Republicans whether Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton (D-N.Y.) or Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) wins the Democratic nomination but that the outcome would prove divisive for congressional Democrats.“It is a problem oakleys because one side is going to be sorely disappointed,” he said. “The longer this goes on …there are going to be some very disappointed people.”Boehner also shared an unusual story during the luncheon about his recent trip to Libya and a meeting with oakley frogskins Libya President Moammar Gadhafi.“I would rather have seen the president, but I’ll take Brad Pitt,” she said to her companion.By 3:45 p.m., hordes of tourists parked around the Rotunda perimeter and outside Pelosi’s office in anticipation of Pitt's exit. Staffers outside Senate oakley Minority Leader Mitch McConnell’s (R-Ky.) office had their cameras primed for quick shots.Pitt left his meeting with Pelosi out a back door at 3:55.“I'd rather not say,” he said when asked how his meeting with the Speaker went.“Thanks for coming,” a female staffer oakleys sunglasses outside McConnell’s office said to him as he walked by, sunglasses in hand.He finally left the Capitol complex at 4 p.m., whisked out by his security team in a black Ford SUV. Brad Pitt became the latest Hollywood star to lobby Congress, eliciting oakley aviators gasps and screams from staffers and tourists as he strode about the Capitol complex to meet with three top lawmakers.

Well, the dollar store

Well, the dollar store concept has become a well-known one, driven by the slowly-recovering economy. These retail outlets are on the rise.

This is a sad news for the

This is a sad news for the citizens near Weeksville Road. It has served people for many years and now it will be closing. Dollar discount stores have become more aggressive and more profitable in the post-recession economy. But if one dollar store's strategy catches on, soon you might even be filling your prescriptions there. When economic crisis strikes, there come foreclosure, recession, bankruptcy and rising unemployment rate.

Call it as it really is!

True, ECSU college kids certainly favored and frequented the store next to the campus. True, their presence impacted that store's business. False, the store's closing is not a sign of loss of confidence in ECSU. True, massive shoplifting by students and the local hoods contributed greatly to the unprofitability of that store. So yes, I guess the college kids DID have a big impact!

Isn't that what happen to the

Isn't that what happen to the S&R Market at Edgewood Shopping Center?

Right on

I'm glad someone else remembers!

Seriously. I want to know.

I anxious to hear the facts supporting your contention that "massive shoplifting by students and the local hoods contributed greatly to the unprofitability of that store". If that's true, I want to know. If it's not true, then - once again - you owe someone an apology.

Then ask for yourself

This has been going on for years, not with just this store, but others in close proximity to ECSU campus. Family Dollar just couldn't get it under control. You think them building a new, larger store on Ehringhaus St. is just an coincidence? Think again! Family Dollar was quietly and conveniently moving their away from the problem, while still maintaining a presence in EC, so this store closing by the campus was not just a knee-jerk plan. Oh, by the way, the shoplifting problem at the Food Lion just down the road got so bad a couple of years ago that anyone wearing a backpack is required to leave it at the service desk prior to shopping there, plus they beefed up their surveilliance system. Don't believe me, just go ask. The really BIG problem for EC is that everyone has tip-toed around and hushed-up all of the scandals, corruption, crime, and wrongful acts going on within and around the campus for fear of insulting all of those "entitled" working and residing there. I suggest you try getting your head out of your a** and start looking at what's REALLY going on around here in EC. Just because you don't see it in the local newspaper doesn't mean that it's not happening. All they're going to print is what THEY want YOU to know about and what gets spoon fed to them by ECSU, City Mangers office, ECPD, & PCSD. As for owing anyone an apology, apparently you've mistaken me for someone that really gives a fat rat's butt. As Rhett Butler said in Gone with the Wind, "Frankly, my dear, I don't give a damn".

Thank you for your reply.

Your response is very revealing. I feel I know you better now.

Thanks for your view.

I and others understand and must accept your unwillingness to apologize for your regularly insulting comments. That's just who you are. All the best.

I hate to ask, but -

- is there a chance we could get an apology from your mama?
