A PAVN battalion of the NVA 33rd regiment shelled the camp, but did not press to overrun it. They did, however, surround the area with antiaircraft artillery , as a successful “flak trap” for aircraft. They also placed artillery and mortars on high ground, with a clear goal of ambushing the expected relief column..
Making a gift tower is an easy way to turn a smaller gift into something spectacular. Basically, a tower consists of three or more boxes in varying sizes. Wrap each one in gift wrap. We have a large agenda and a very tight time line (Jan. 3) to try and make recommendations that are sound and doable. To begin with I’m very interested in the ability of hospitals and other vital institutions to withstand and respond to disasters.
Yehuda, who has also worked with veterans of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, said she believes events affect people but do not damage them. “For many vets, the benefits of the experience did not override the cost,” she said. “Survivors want to achieve something positive by talking about the experience or finding a lesson.”.
So the then president of Austria wrote me and said, can we do to recognize you? And I said, don need recognition but I would like to have a symposium at the University of Vienna on the response of Austria to National Socialism. While I was there I was struck by the fact that the University of Vienna sits on a part of the Ringstra called the Karl Lueger Ring, named after Vienna mayor in the early 20th century, who taught Hitler that anti Semitism is a fantastic political platform. So a number of other people and I argued that it was improper for the University, the moral citadel of the country, to be sitting in Lueger Ring.
Great Blog! Was initially looking for some advice on when to harvest borlotti beans as this is my first year growing them. Got some great tips largely due to your blog, even better that you I live in the same city! I live inner city, so space is at a premium, cherry tomatoes are what grows best for me, this year I had 6 cherry tomato plants pop up out of the garden bed. I also never knew about taking out the lateral growth of tomatoes, best fruit set ever! I’ve got up to almost 20 cherry tomatoes in one fruit set! Looking forward to more harvests and lots of other green thumbs online..
Bollinger’s legal and public advocacygoes back to his defense of the University of Michigan affirmative action programs when he was president there, which resulted in the 2003 Supreme Court cases that upheld the rights of schools to use holistic admissions policies that take account of race.

University of Texas case, Bollinger continued his public advocacy as well as joining an amicus brief by several peer universities urging the court to uphold the University of Texas’s holistic admissions policy.
