In the beleaguered airline industry, Dallas based Southwest Airlines has been something of a bright spot. carrier in terms of the number of passengers, Southwest has consistently turned a profit through a streamlined service model that emphasizes efficient turnaround of passengers, planes and luggage. The carrier has also managed to differentiate itself from other airlines with fewer fees and a fly free policy. But lately, Southwest has been in the news for all the wrong reasons. After the fuselage of one of Southwest jets ruptured last week, prompting an emergency landing, the carrier grounded 79 of its planes and cancelled hundreds of flights in order to do additional safety inspections. The investigation has now shifted from Southwest to the Boeing made planes the Chicago based aircraft manufacturer has said the type of fatigue suspected in the incident happened much earlier in the plane lifespan than expected, according to Reuters, which also reported that all airlines flying older jets may now be facing more stringent inspections. (A story from Popular Mechanics provides more detail on how the problem with the planes went undetected.) But where does that leave Southwest? The airline reported today that traffic in March which wouldn take into account the April 1 safety scare was up more than 9% when compared to the same period in 2010. Passenger revenue per available seat mile rose an estimated 8% to 9% from this time last year. Transparency will be a key to mitigating any damage, according to Wharton experts. When Toyota recalled millions of vehicles in 2010 due to a safety issue, Wharton management professor Lawrence Hrebiniak stressed the importance of the automaker calming customers fears, noting that uncertainty only makes the situation worse in the long run. In that case, Maurice Schweitzer, a Wharton professor of operations and information management, suggested that Toyota needed to make a grand gesture in order to hold on to its position in the market. He said offering cash toward a new purchase would be viewed as too self serving, and straight cash compensation would come across as need to do something warmer, something that demonstrates caring. I think they can recover, but that window is closing. They will have to do something big and fast. officials told The Dallas Morning News that four of the five planes found to have tiny fuselage cracks during the re inspection process are expected to be back in the air by this weekend following repairs. "Now that our inspections are complete our focus shifts to completing the repairs and getting the aircraft back into service," Mike Van de Ven, Southwest executive vice president and chief operating officer, told the paper. "Our event, though obviously not what we would want to happen, is ultimately working to improve the effectiveness of 737 inspections and maintenance programs world wide. 384664 107 Air Jordan 6 White Sport Blue Black ,314996 005 Nike Air Foamposite One Concord Air Jordan 6 Rings Black Varsity Royal 136027 035 Air Jordan V Oreo Black Cool Grey White Nike Kobe 9 Low EM XDR Purple Black 136064 002 Nike Air Jordan 3 III Retro Black Cat Black Dark Charcoal Black 395709 601 Air Jordan 2 II Retro QF Candy Pack Varsity Red Black White 646701 001 Kobe 9 EM 308497 002 Nike Air Jordan 4 IV Retro Black Cat Black Black Light Graphite 440892 307 Women Size Air Jordan 5 Retro Tropical Teal 2013 An ingrown toenail is one of the most painful foot conditions we often bring on ourselves. Although sometimes ingrown toenails are hereditary, they're most often caused by incorrect nail trimming and they become even more painful when they're squeezed by shoes that are too short and tight. Fortunately, there are simple steps you can follow to help prevent ingrown toenails. The best tip for preventing ingrown toenails is: trim your nails straight across the top NOT in a rounded shape. In addition, avoid wearing shoes or socks that squeeze your toes together. If you do get an ingrown toenail, it may cure itself as the nail grows. In the meantime, you can relieve the pain with the steps that follow. However, if you are diabetic or have poor circulation, seek professional attention. Switch to longer shoes with a bigger toe box. Soak your foot in a solution of one part povidone iodine to one part water once a day for 20 minutes to reduce inflammation. Trim your nails as best you can. Do not try to "dig out" a deeply ingrown nail, however. Apply an antiseptic once a day, preferably after a bath or shower. This is especially important, because one of the greatest dangers of ingrown toenails is the possibility of infection (see the next page for more information on this). Your nail cuticle can also become sore as a side effect of an ingrown toenail. If this happens to you, you'll experience redness, swelling, and pain around the cuticle. To reduce the discomfort and inflammation and prevent fungal infection, soak your feet in a solution of one part povidone iodine to one part warm water twice a day for about 15 minutes each time, and apply antiseptic after each soak. Keep up this routine until the cuticle is free of pain and back to a normal appearance. If an ingrown nail is left untreated or is forced too far into the skin by the pressure of shoes, it may not grow out on its own. The only treatment in this situation is to see a doctor, who can numb the toe and remove the offending portion of the nail permanently. If an ingrown toenail gets worse, it may become infected. Or, injuries to your toes can result in an infection. Learn how to treat this condition on the next page.

The Bush Administration would be the best thing to happen to Riyadh since the discovery of oil, with two regional enemies (Iraq and Iran) smashed and a friendly but dangerous reformist element (the Taliban) driven from power. Additionally, the higher oil prices would line Saudi pockets while the Gulf principalities re align with their western neighbor. And obviously, Iranian pressure on Eastern Arabia would lessen considerably. Egypt, Kuwait, etc. Second and Third tier Sunni Arab stats would also benefit from the end of Tehran's ability to export security. From the perspective of these statist countries, the largest benefit of the Iraq War (ending the instability caused by Saddam Hussein) has been washed out by the biggest detriment of the Iraq War (the renewed instability caused by Iran). Pakistan With Russia discredited as a major power and America having limited staying power, Islamabad looks forward to recolonizing Afghanistan, as she had previously done through the Taliban. However, Iran also neighbors Afghanistan and works to spoil any Pakistan oriented Afghani regime. Persians Persians only make up 51% of the population in the old Persian state, and are almost completely absent on the volatile western front. Persians aren't in danger of the fate that awaited the Iraq Sunni Arabs, but the loss of their government would hardly be good. Syria Syria is a Sunni Muslim state run by Wahabi Shia Muslims and aligned with Iran. The fall of fellow Shia Iran, in the shadow of the fall of fellow Ba'ath Iraq, would leave Damascus both friendless and humiliated. Hezbollah Hezbollah's main achievement in the war with Israel was to separate herself from Syria as Iran's preferred client in Lebanon. But the fall of Iran would place Hezbollah, by necessity, under Syrian tutelage. Worse, if the Syrian Ba'ath Party would fall to the Muslim Brothers, Hezbollah may be left without friends in the region. China The People's Republic concentrates on economic growth, and for that requests only geopolitical stability and open trade. An American war with Iran would destabilize the middle east and drive up energy prices. Bad news for Beijing. India New Delhi is weak and uses Iran to help keep Pakistan in line. The fall of Iran would help Islamabad's quest for strategic depth and take away Pakistan's second front. The United States America would lose an often de facto in Tehran but would reward her oldest friends in the region. Russia Moscow would lose her trans Caspian partner, but would profit from higher energy prices. As Russia has for decades traded land and influence for cash, the fall of Iran would be almost a non event. Europe higher energy prices and a richer Russia would be partially offset by a greater clamor for energy independence from Russia. Short term pain, long term gain. The Iraqis the end of the Shia and Kurdish sponsor would increase the voice of America in internal Iraqi projects, but perhaps help get America out sooner (as "losing to Iran" would no longer be an option). The same logic applies, in reverse, for the Iraqi Sunni Arabs. The Muslim Brothers the strengthening of the Egyptian regime would be counterbalanced by the weakening of the Syrian government. Israel Iran and her clients, Syria and Hezbollah, are obviously weakened. But the potential for a Muslim brother revolution in Syria is disquieting (Jerusalem would prefer the incompetent Ba'ath to stay in power). Conclusion: Should America attack Iran? My take: It's a wash. Iran would have made a great partner for piece, but Iran has not stepped up to the plate. As a nation we rely on having a President with the power to take action when he sees fit. Ultimately, it's Bush's call. Respectfully, I believe the impending conflict between us and the Iranians is not due to an Iranian lack of compromise, but rather ours. You may recall several reports regarding Cheney and OVP rejecting any communication with Iran regarding a compromise on the nuclear issue ('we don't talk to evil'). Also, I believe the Time piece in the next post mentions our pressuring and capture of Iranian operatives in Iraq. While I support the arrest of anyone in Iraq who is contributing to violence, blunting telling the Iranians to stay out of Iraq's business is like China telling us to stay out of Mexico's affairs. This future war will be the result of strategic miscalculations on both sides, but to say that it's because the Iranians aren't cooperating only masks our own stubborness, which at this point is absolutely mindboggling. The deaf continue to lead the blind at our own peril. More likely is that both states are aggressively pursuing their interests among the ruins of Ba'athi Iraq. "Also, I believe the Time piece in the next post mentions our pressuring and capture of Iranian operatives in Iraq" Indeed, or for that point the al Qaeda operatives Iran captured and doesn't turn over, or the People's Mujahideen currently in American custody, or. "blunting telling the Iranians to stay out of Iraq's business is like China telling us to stay out of Mexico's affairs." What of the global residual effects in terms of energy? We've seen oil prices rising in light of the possibility of real friction between Britain and Iran. Wouldn't collapsing the Iranian regime have a devastating effect on oil prices? Further, despite it's obnoxious figurehead and the dandy band of bearded sages that lead Iran, much of it's young populace hold a decidedly pro western ideal. Should we waste that generation as they become uber nationalists in light of our attack?

My son said, "Me shoe is green!" Yes, he has green shoes! Anyway, I hoped that he would catch on to the rhyming game. I tried it again the next day with new words/phrases, but he didn't get it. He seems to love the nursery rhymes and we always sing songs, and he doesn't seem to indicate any learning delay. I know it will happen. My question is when? When should kids be able to rhyme? It's interesting people say, "My kid knows all of his letters!" At 2, it's probably just naming/memorization. think the concept of rhyming shows that the kids really internalize that words are being formed by sounds. Once mastered, kids can match the sounds to letters beyond memorization. The other reason I mention this question is because I realized that he mispronounces some words. He can say the sound for every letter correctly, so I know that he has effective muscle tone and hearing ability. Regularly he says /sh/ or instead of the combination of /s/ and another consonant or /r/ and another consonant. Is this because the consonant blends will come later? An example is "shfeet" for "street." It reminds me of 5 7 year olds who have a speech impediment. Is this something that is too early to know about for my son? All of a sudden, our kids are talking nonstop. Now look at me, wondering why he's not articulating perfectly. Sigh. I simply do not want to overlook a potential problem. especially one that could impact my son's reading skills in the long run. Most of the sounds are not expected to be correct until at least preschool age. My ds's preK teacher had a few of the kids in the class screened before school ended to get a jump start on services next year if it was applicable, but even things like saying "lellow" for yellow are developmentally normal still for a 4 year old. There's a phonetics chart for speech progression that I picked up somewhere when I was concerned about my older ds's /r/ and /s/ sounds, and those are not an area of concern until 6 or 7 if I remember correctly. At 2, if you can understand most of what they are saying, regardless of how clear it is, then you're probably right on track. is more a preschool/early elementary skill. They'll spend tons of time on that in school, so don't sweat it now. Colors and shapes are a good place to start if you want to do some at home learning. 384664 107 Air Jordan 6 White Sport Blue Black It seems everywhere you look these days, you seem to pass people as if they are gliding across the floor.
