I’ve seen numerous guns from the 60’s and every single one of them that had a blind magazine had a dedicated blind magazine box like shown in this pic. Floor plate bottom metal was changed and button was added for the detachable mag. And what is highly polished on it? This will tell you everything there is to know about the gun. What’s with the attitude dude? And thanks for the info on the letter. Every time one of us has told you something in this thread you’ve questioned it like none of us have a clue what we’re talking about – you even tried to turn it into a poll at one point. Mad Dog’s by far the most knowledgeable person on this site when it comes to old Savage’s and he has access to very specific serial number records. He and I both have copies of most every single Savage Arms catalog going clear back to the 40’s and 50’s, and a limited selection of catalogs earlier than that.

I’ve been collecting dating info on the old ‘s for a long time, yours is the highest serial number in my records yet. The previous number is XXX made in so I’d hazard a guess yours is as well because in they went to the A series serial numbers (start with a letter).

Jeffrey Glorfeld Smartphones have fried their brains There is a groundswell of concern about the rise of the smartphone to total dominance in our waking lives. Digital technology is enriching, but also consumes our attention at the expense of books, outdoor activities and social life. What might that mean for developing teenage brains who have known no life without it?

Could obsessive use of digital media, as Nicholas Carr suggested in his Pulitzer-shortlisted book The Shallows, actually be rewiring our brains away from deep concentration and problem-solving toward infinite skimming and perpetual distractibility? Is this why the average year-old can’t solve problems her predecessors could 15 years ago? Venerated Finnish education expert Pasi Sahlberg fears so. Pointing out that Finland’s PISA results in reading have been in decline since without any other changes to the education system, he asks, “how else can you explain this dramatic change?

The research is in its infancy because academia moves glacially compared to our digital overlords and their marketing armies in Silicon Valley. But a decade-long Canadian study, “Growing Up Digital”, has reported disturbing preliminary results , with a majority of phone-obsessed students coming to school tired, distracted and unable to focus. How much can you really tell from a multilingual, sample-based test performed by a random selection of students, in a bunch of wildly different education systems?

Teachers here have a role that is far more demanding than in nations where students and their families vest everything in education and where tutoring is endemic. We ranked 14th in science, 16th in reading and 25th in mathematics, of 72 participating countries and economies. And most of the countries ahead of us — with the exceptions of Canada and New Zealand — are small, monocultures like Singapore, Hong Kong and Finland.

A building covered in portraits of Xi Jinping in Shanghai. AP But China’s slowing economy, and the manifest social problems it threatens to entail, has heaped pressure on the Xi administration. Radical reforms, particularly in a monolithic state-owned sector laden with vested interest groups, have remained difficult to push through. Paranoid about the infiltration of Western influence and the ability for the internet and social media to disseminate unfiltered information at warp speed, Xi has doubled-down on the government’s control of its people, coming down harder on dissent than any of his recent predecessors.

Foreign criticism, whether of China’s island-building program in the South China Sea , the government’s chequered human rights record, or controversial ethnic minority policies in Xinjiang and Tibet, are all cast as a plot by a cabal of Western “hostile foreign forces” designed to undermine China and perpetuate US hegemony. The creation of various party sub-committees, reporting directly to him, has centralised decision-making on matters pertaining to the economy, national security, cybersecurity and the military.

How do Americans stand out from the rest of the world?

Hey Meredith, More than a year ago I began dating a recent widower. By recent I mean that he had lost his wife less than six months prior. I knew him vaguely through work, never knew her. At the time, I had sworn off dating and was pretty focused on raising my kids and enjoying the occasional weekend they were with their dad.

Dating back to the days before broadband the winter sales would also take on a life of its own. Howard said: “When I was in menswear we would start preparing for two weeks before to get.

I feel for this letter writer. I know the answer is obvious, but Hi Meredith, I am having an epic battle of heart versus brain. He tells me constantly how happy he is around me and how amazing I am, all common lines, I know, but I actually believe this one when he says it. So along with the lack of plan making subject, we talked about where our relationship stands. Now, I personally believe that if a guy wants to see me, he will make plans to see me versus waiting for something better to come along, that just seems like common sense actions speak louder than words.

He did say that he would be more willing to make plans in advance with me though so there would be some sort of compromise. So here is the question: My brain tells me to make a run for it, get out while I can and protect whatever shreds of self esteem I have left. My heart wants to give it a shot. My question really boils down to the age old rivalry: I’m going to tell you to take 40 steps back.

This guy is not interested in a respectful, boyfriend-girlfriend-type relationship.

Still, though, Webster never denied that he believed wives should submit to the spiritual authority of their husbands. Gothard insisted to me in direct contradiction to materials on his own website that he does not teach submission. That makes the woman the greatest of all because she has served every single person in the world by being in her womb. Webster was and remains a staunch social conservative, opposing LGBT rights and abortion even in the case of rape or incest. He introduced an unsuccessful covenant marriage bill in the Florida legislature which would have prohibited divorce except in cases of adultery.

As promised back in February I mentioned that I would write a blog about my experience and adventures on my dating extravaganza last year. Prior to living in Melbourne, I was living in the Kimberley desert working in amongst the expansion of arid beauty and undulating hills that cut through the rich red earth.

Turns out, it’s what humans have been after for as long as we’ve been around: In S2E2, we learned that James Delos was dying. In “Sphinx,” viewers see the progress of this experiment through three of failed attempts by William to essentially bring back Delos from the dead by imprinting his mind onto a host body. But the reincarnation doesn’t take, and, in the third and final attempt that we see, William now, the Man in Black , leaves Delos to descend into madness.

That descent is deep. As Elsie and Bernard explore Outpost 12, they find a destroyed room cast in red light. And, around the corner, the man we know to be James Delos riding a stationary bicycle, while peddling backwards. More like journey into hell! HBO After a struggle, Delos, with his face covered in bleeding, self-inflicted scratches, delivers a cryptic speech.

Horace Mitchell Miner wrote the paper and originally published it in the June edition of American Anthropologist. The way in which he writes about the curious practices that this group performs distances readers from the fact that the North American group described actually corresponds to modern-day Americans of the mid s. The article sometimes serves as a demonstration of a gestalt shift with relation to sociology.

The paper describes the typical Western ideal for oral cleanliness, as well as providing an outside view on hospital care and on psychiatry. The article itself received the most reprint permission requests of any article in American Anthropologist, but has become part of the public domain.

Twins Michael and Howard Jones, 59, were interviewed together for positions at Howells, one of Wales’ best-known department stores. Their love affair with the Cardiff store continued for four decades and they’ll finish it just as they started – together – when the shop closes its doors early next year for the final time, Wales Online reports. Aged 17 the brothers were even interviewed together in the same room, fresh from finishing their learning at Cardiff High School.

Indeed, the main half in length of this compilation comes from a gig played soon after their Third album’s release, when the band was freshly reconceived as a quartet, featuring their classic line-up. Relying mostly on their main two live centerpiece Facelift and Nose Job , you’ll find roughly the same kind of material on the Prom’s dating from one month later posthumous archives album, or in other recordings, but it’s fairly interesting to compare how their tracks and set list of May 70 changed over a few months, as evidenced by the track list on the Grides release in Oct 70 and March Soooo while the set is excellent in itself, it won’t be essential listening, if you already own a few live recording from that often-recorded quartet line-up.

The second third of the compilation is probably the most interesting, but also the shortest, and is a rare witness of the short-lived period of the band when it was expanded to a septet, including a four-man brass section. Indeed, with Mark Charig, Nick Evans, Lynn Dobson and Elton Dean freshly integrated into the band, but the first two would leave very quickly, while the third would stay on for a while more – and there is a superb Live In Paris filmed concert available as a quintet.

But here, we have one of only three short testimony of the septet and indeed it might be interesting to regroup all three remaining testimonies in one disc of that brief and intriguing period of the band’s career. These two tracks are highly interesting, with a major brass enhancement, but you’d better brace yourself, because the abridged version of Facelift and the Anemone track can produce a WTF reaction. It’s clear that the Keith Tippett Group horn section and also partly present on two Crimson albums adds a little ‘je ne sais quoi’ to the band’s soundscape, but in some ways, it feels maybe a tad too ‘brass rock’ ala Chicago at times.

Anyway, these two tracks just over mins are the main attraction of this archives album.


I watch my neighbor every day drive off to work and think what a lucky fellow he is. Not only does he have a job, but also a lovely wife at home that I would love to fuck. On this particular day, he drove off to work and a few minutes later his wife came out to empty the kitchen trash. I sat there wondering just how good a fuck she was.
