I would've given this application 5 stars until the update. I dont like the graphics at all and often the alerts won't begin when selected. I had uninstalled the application and just reinstalled after a few days. Too much "stuff" on the screen. Please go back to the prior version.
Since the recent modernize November 7th 2018, the videos play flawlessly. Amazing job WGN weather app. I don't watch much TV. I don't need to except for the WGN weather application and WGN TV apps. And the immediate audio messages from wgn are very useful to hold aware of the recent weather in our areas. This application is working better than it ever has.
I actually really like the update. Being able to customize the side menu in the radar by dragging and dropping the weather elements I view often is nice and there are a lot of options. The radar also now updates every few mins which makes a huge difference when viewing the precipitation radar. One thing that does need to be addressed is the pinch to zoom when viewing the radar. It's sort of broken.
I don't use it for the alerts (have that disabled), but it generally has worked fine for radar and general weather. The recent ver seems to have installed a background task that constantly runs, even with all alerts disabled. Not sure if it's a bug or if it's now doing ad-related tracking. The modernize as of October 2018 is a downgrade, mainly for the updated radar screen. Trying to pinch zoom in and out does not work well, if at all. Maybe if I had some $1000 flagship phone it would be faster?
This album was a turning point for Simon and Garfunkle. They edged out of the purely folk intellegensia thing and became a bit more... common man sophistication. Becaaause the songs are about the common man. Thats the issue and the originality of Simons point of view. He seems to look upon the common man, not to be one. His expression of his own pain through the characters is still intact here. Later it gets very fuzzy, you cannot really feel anything .. he is describing, describing, never just feeling with music. But he is here. His characters on a bus are themselves barely connected, with him confessing that he is lost - while she is sleeping. And looking out the window at all the vehicles - all come to look for America. The plea, the cry,all come to look for America. I confess that I went off looking for America largely inspired by this song when I was very young. I even bought a hostess pie, just to be sure I was in the right movie. I think the song is relevant, not nostalgic. This feeling of being caught up, of being part of a time that you cannot grasp,of fleeting moments with others that dont seem to ever penetrate the abyss of loneliness when no one is looking - this is a story that every generation of American feels, specific to America it becomes poignant and exhausting. Born to the largest and best, the ground slips beneath our feet as people jump of buildings and gunmen point their rage at strangers... 'Cathy I'm lost, I said, though I knew she was sleeping. I'm empty and aching, and I dont know why. ' I forgive him his ... sometimes embarrassing dissection of himself, the lyric, whatever, into something that must always sound educated. It is who he is, Sounds of Silence.. a boy who was educated perhaps, but who really wanted to be a part of those who are educated and who Wears it, somehow. It gave him a .. Oxford pompousness that gave credence to his early work. I guess considering he came from Brooklyn I think... I could see how this mattered to him to have a various identity. And so this is the hand which picks up the pen, and it is in everything he does.
As part of my ongoing project to collect the melody of my life, I have taken a while to visit Simon and Garfunkel. While I was not a large fan, my best mate since high school was obsessed with the pair during the 70's. America was always a favorite. It was the featured song on a PBS story on the Statue of Liberty. It one of their best!
The album "Bookends" has a log of tine songs. The only problem, in my opinion, is that the producer felt the melody would sound more "hip" with some added sound effects and odd musical touches - thankfully these embellishments don't take away from the quality of the songs. As to "America", it's a song about lovers walking off to "look for America", and it retains its romantic tone throughout, even while hinting at something darker about the find ("I'm empty and aching and I don't know why"). The song ends with the idea that we're all looking for America, which I think is really cool, even if there's no mention in the tune about either the singer or others ever actually finding it.
This is the excellent book for engaging young people in education on civil rights. The tragedies that read as current happenings impact communities and this book provides zone for understanding the history of civil rights in this country and drawing connection between the past and present. Centering stories of those most marginalized is important for anyone interested in equality and equity and this book does that beautifully. The recommended readings are a breath of new air I can't wait to give this book as a bonus to all of my niblings.
As an admirer of Ms. Abrams, I was looking forward to some unreserved insight, but the tone is so incredibly condescending; she presumes the reader is uneducated and un-evolved. The architecture of her assertions cannot keep up when the reader has the ability to question, rather than simply drink from a fire-hose of kool-aid. Moreover, it's just plain boring. I did the audiobook and couldn't create it through ten mins without falling asleep. In sum: boring, pedantic, misleading.
Wow! An perfect book for teachers & parents to share with their students & children. This book has so much information starting with abolitionists and reconstructtion to noting current movements and significant people & events. I also love the comprehension and essay questions, the graphic, and timelines.
My copy of Civil Rights Then & Now arrived and I couldn’t be more thrilled. From individuals to movements of the distant past and show Brooke weaves a well-founded narrative of Civil Rights. I’m grateful for her inclusion of violence versus Black Americans. I love the choices for pull quotes and the illustrations are winsome.
Why do we Americans sugarcoat history? Why do we shield our kids from uncomfortable truths? Why don’t we teach history in true time? I can’t remember an instance where a book for young people has created me contemplate so a lot of huge an educator, what strikes me most about the writing in this book is the sheer truth of it. The author has managed to show past and show happenings in a surprisingly honest and informative way, while still writing in child-friendly rmally, by the time happenings create it to history books, they have been homogenized, clarified, watered down, and created insipid enough to cause a superficial understanding of necessary events. Not so with this is book has already opened dialogues and inspired lessons for me and I am very excited to have it as a tool for contemplation and hopefully, change.
First off I will start by labelling myself as a "swing voter" as she describes in her book. I am neither Republican nor Democrat, Conservative nor Liberal. Who I am leaning towards in the 2020 Presidential election would not have been my choice in previous years. I maintain no loyalty to one party. I would vote for a trans black woman just as easily as I would vote for a straight white Christian male. It doesn't matter to at being said, Abrams does a amazing job presenting the facts about the importance of voting in the American political arena as well as the dark, often deliberate evils of voter suppression. That alone was 5 r the first half of the book or so I thought that she had a poor habit of lumping all Republicans and Conservatives together, that they are all complicit in voter suppression and in cahoots with Brian Kemp, Governor of Georgia. Kemp is a bad, poor guy, there is no question about that. However, she could have elaborated on what drives Republican and Conservative voters to vote for stricter voting laws; I don't believe that it is strictly a racial problem for the average daily Conservative but can be derived from understanding Conservative values and morals. I was willing to give her the benefit of the doubt for the most part of the book though. Minus one e chapter on Populism was oddly out of put and simply an unapologetic attack on Donald Trump. Pointing fingers and calling people names and blaming issues on one person does not support the situation. And then in the afterword she essentially locations all of the blame on America's fallen status on American conservatives harking back to the Ronald Reagan era. This was an unquantifiable claim that again, felt oddly out of put considering how she masterfully presented quantifiable facts about voter suppression earlier in the book. Minus one star.Overall good. I would suggest it. I also would suggest to her to not allow her emotion overcome the facts as it weakens the argument and makes her appear incredibly bitter and biased.
this book and this book called "theories of a mastermind: 20 day challenge..." by James Moultrie are on various levels as far as literature. I cant play spoiler alert, but these books have a dark psychological aspect to them. They a deep dive into whats really going on, and what you can do to be ahead of others who havent read them. In my opinion these 2 books go hand in hand. This is just my opinion.
My comments are about the app, not about P.A. (I really like Passport America, by the way!) The application mostly works, and very well. I am having problem letting the application know that I am a member, which makes it unable to accept certain input from me, such as adding a testimonial to a put I've stayed. But I am 99% satisfied with the app, and it works very well, especially when I need an respond right-here-right-now. It's fast and responsive as I pull into a fresh city looking for a put to park it.
It doesn't have all the campgrounds in the application so this application is a waste of time. It doesn't present the Peoples Creek campground (a Corps of Engineering campground) in Wappapello, MO. It's definitely a part of this program too. I'm uninstalling until it gets the database updated.
WONDERFUL! For the lack of a better English word. What will this globe be like without Chief Stephen Osita Osadebe, simply known to us as "OSADEBE".Anyone who calls him/herself Osadebe's Lover and has not purchased this CD, (Kedu America) must be living under the caves, ( not like those guys you're think of, mabye yea!)This CD is a must have and it's no joke. All the tracks are amazing. Test listening to Osondi Owendi. Udo dili unu oo.
