Ha, that reminds me of the cas where one of our advertiser creatives kept getting disapproved by Google creative approval process. The ad was for a family hotel somewhere in Germany. It took a while to find out why the creative got disapproved. Look but don’t touch is a dandy rule of thumb when encountering the surprisingly smart tale of a rabid, parasitic body snatching porcupine monster (is there any other kind?) that emerges from the deep dark woods to menace two young couples, one of yuppie variety, the other, not so much. Trapped in a boondocks gas station, deprived of their cell phones (gasp!) and bonded by bloodletting, disemboweling and a particularly icky bit of do it yourself amputation (don’t worry, the faint of heart will know just when to look away!), the characters learn to bridge the class divide. Fast.
The set almost always follows the pass in a volleyball game. Usually the setter on a volleyball team is much more athletic than the rest. Setters should also be the smartest and best leaders. As Indian Americans continue their winning spree at the annual Scripps National Spelling Bee, which annually brings to Washington the winners of the regional bees, this somewhat strange competition is understandably garnering increased attention in India. Writing for the Hindu (6 June 2010) on this year’s competition and its winner Anamika Veeeramani, a 14 year old from the state of Ohio, Narayan Lakshman commenced the article thus: “Is it because of Indian colonial history with Britain or is it something at the level of genetic programming? Whatever the explanation, there is no denying that Indians have a penchant for the English language, a transgenerational, linguistic love affair that gets transmitted even to [the] far flung diaspora.” That characterization of Indians as having “a penchant for the English language” is seemingly endorsed by a recent article in the New York Times, which reports that American law firms have now begun to outsource legal documents to India not only for legal assistance at a fraction of the cost in the US but also to ensure that correct and indeed elegant English is used in such documents. That penchant will also be self evident to those who have observed the rise of the English novel in India, from the time of R.
Daily shear tests were conducted with durability and moisture content measured. The exposure of all three pellet types to high RH coupled with elevated temperatures caused a substantial decrease of shear modulus with values of 50% to 92% decrease compared to fresh pellets after 4 days exposure. The steam exploded pellets saw the lowest drop in mechanical durability (5%) but saw the largest decrease in shear modulus, whilst the white wood pellets disintegrated in situ after 4 days.
