Ysy. New thread!

Phew!

Mark Ko, the head of a company called Demeter Direct, told CNN on Friday that he served as a middle person between Trump aide Michael Cohen and Korea Aerospace Industries.

"With regards to your inquiry on my involvement with Michael Cohen, I was brought in as business consultant and translator between Michael Cohen and Korea Aerospace Industries," Ko told CNN in an email. "The relationship officially ended on November 2017."

It was reported this week that Korea Aerospace Industries paid Cohen $150,000 in consulting fees.

Public filings for Demeter Direct in California list Ko as the company's CEO and say the company deals with Korean food..

We kids drove our great aunt's 1956 Oldsmobile in the 70's. Dad had front seatbelts and an outside mirror installed.

The power brakes had very little travel, and when master cylinder went bad, the first stomp on them would often do nothing, a bit scary for a teenage driver. You had to remember to take your foot off, pray, and try again. Took months to find parts for it. Later, they had to get a mechanic out of retirement to fix the tranny.

North Carolina dentists apologize for wearing cultural garb in 'ignorant and offensive' ad

The ad featured three blond, white female dentists posing in cultural garb. Jill Sonner wore a Native American costume with a headband and beaded accessories.

Anna Abernethy donned a Scottish highlander outfit while Anita Wells dressed in a Japanese kimono. Wells was accessorized with chopsticks in her hair and a colorful hand fan.

The advertisement read, “Everyone smiles in the same language!” and was promoting a teeth-whitening treatment.

All that mechanic talk on the other thread.

One of my best pals at Lehigh in the 60's was studying CE since his dad owned a big construction company. But Tony was a car nut at the Peak Muscle Car time. Off the top of my head, I recall his college cars as 66 GTO, Boss Ford Mustang, Shelby Ford Mustang. The fraternity used to get complaints from the university about Tony's shade tree mechanic operation in our parking lot.

At graduation his parents were proud that he was now a full fledged Civil Engineer...until he announced that rather than going home and working for Pop, he had purchased the Gulf Station at the foot of the Lehigh Campus so he could get paid for working on his cars. And have a lift all to himself.

A Davidson man needs no introduction.

Maybe it is too early on a Saturday for math.

"Having lost two straight my Yankees are no longer projected to win 140 games. Probably down to about a 70 win season."

Loss of two games changes projection from 140 to 70? That is a big drop off.

We moved to Phx when I was 15. There was a speed shop next door that became my default hangout. My dad bought a 59 Buick Electra 225 to drive RE clients around and it took me about 5 min to put it on the chassis dyno and power time it. That beast would do 60-100 in about one breath, but if you had to hit the brakes, they would fade to nothing after dropping about 20 mph. That was near the end of big, aluminum finned drum brakes.

Ry Cooder: we have tix for July 13 in Seattle. Bought a couple for our housekeeper who’s into the stuff usually posted on KJOM, but I’m trying to expand her interests. She laughed when I told her that we waited outside a concert in Cowlumbus while NiN warmed up for whoever we came to listen to.

I’ve bought Ry’s albums since he started, but never have seen him in concert. With the nearly countless albums he’s either done or contributed to, I’m not sure he ever toured that much, so this may be the cap for me.

TM,

According to my calcs, if the Yanks can now win 4 in a row they are back on track. However, it depends on home or away and what their track record is in both places against the same teams they have lost to this season. Really, you cannot predict any winning season results without more inputs than 2 straight losses.

MT,

Looking for a really good Neurosurgeon in Seattle.

My nephew who works for Microsquish has complained about arm numbness for 10 years.

5 years ago they transposed a couple nerves in his arm (something like carpel tunnel) without much improvement.

They did a bunch of imaging recently and discovered a cyst on his spine between T3 and T4. They don't think it is malignant, but somebody will need to go in and take a look, and maybe remove it.

Obviously like to find someone who knows his shit. My sis, Aaron's mom is the nurse who used to be on the liver transplant team at OSU, so she will probably want to talk to the guy before he does anything.

Can you ask around?

Thanks.

Old Lurker

He would probably say your headache stems from walking out of alignment such that pressure is increased on the spine and therefore the spinal fluid, increasing the fluid pressure in the brain, leading to the ache. If you let him replace both hips, then the headache should clear right up.

Egypt admitted the shah then he came to the states
Wiki says he went to Mexico after Egypt where he became ill. He wouldn't tell them he had pancreatic cancer, so they treated him for malaria. Kissinger and D. Rockefeller (who hoped Iran's reaction would cause us to freeze their borrowing from his bank) put pressure on Carter to let him in, but of course it was already hopeless. P C still has about a 3% survival rate.

From KK's 03:28, by Sarah Hoyt:

In my last year in college, (In Portugal) I had American Literature taught by a Fullbright exchange professor. I will never forget the moment the poor man – talking to a class of 36, all women as such classes often are – let slip the innocent word “him” to mean an indeterminate gender. He paused, went white, his eyes widened, and he said, “I mean, I mean, he or she.”

Meanwhile, the class of 36 was staring at him in puzzlement. It took us a while to take it all apart and realize he thought we’d be offended by the use of “he” to mean someone generic, of indeterminate gender.

Reminds me that on yesterday's Talk Show, Buck Sexton was trying to figure out if there was a female equivalent to "Brethren," and sweating he was approaching non-PC territory. He guessed correctly: "Sistren."

Merriam-Webster: Definition of Sistren

sis·tren \ ˈsistrə̇n , -tə(r)n \

Obama revised:

“I think I Trump could probably do every job on the campaign better than the people I’ll hire to do it,” he said. “It’s hard to give up control when that’s all I’ve known.” Obama said nearly the same thing to Patrick Gaspard, whom he hired to be the campaign’s political director. “I think I’m Trump's a better speechwriter than my speechwriters,” Obama told him. “ I Trump knows more about policies on any particular issue than my policy directors. And I’ll tell you right now that I’m Trump is a better political director than my political director.”

And let's not forget our "Forever First Lady," Michelle Obama:

Michelle Obama declared at a Democratic-party fundraiser in California last June:

He Trump reads every word, every memo, so he Trump is better prepared than the people briefing him,” she said. “This man Trump doesn’t take a day off.”
