I see many such little homes now. What is the advantage on building them on a trailer? And can they be connected to water, phone, electricity, and sewer?
A plumber put a hole in my basement slab. In the hole he installed a check valve into my sewer line to prevent back ups. The top of the check valve has a cover which i need to remove so I can periodically clean the check valve. There is very little space on the sides of the hole to grip the cover to remove it. How can I best remove the cover?
Its a garment that serves no function, so why must I wear one at weddings, church, etc?
What things would I need to major in fashion design. As in classes that I have taken in high school that help and other talents.
Thank you so much
I have got a new sewing machine at home and I am thinking of start making something to put on e bay and even organize a blog with the "new things". I am not sure of what to start with, I have a friend who makes accessories: neckless, bags, etc. So I don't want to copy her, but I do not know what to do...
It's in a good neighborhood and it will sell right away..what i don't know is how to build a house. I think its a good investment.. anybody else think that?
I Dont mean the real kind, i mean this kind: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fursuits
Need someone to price something for me if your educated in it. Thanks to any/all that give me Helpful info.
Union heads representing thousands of America's immigration agents slammed the Obama administration Thursday over a policy they claim is forcing officials to ignore the law and allowing i****************s to exploit the system.
In a startling allegation, the president of the union representing Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers claimed i****************s are "taking advantage" of a new directive allowing some undocumented residents who came to the U.S. as children to stay in the country. Union boss Chris Crane said the policy ends up allowing i****************s to avoid detention without any proof -- particularly so-called "dreamers," or those i****************s who would benefit under the "DREAM Act" proposal, which Congress has not passed but the administration has partially implemented.
"Prosecutorial discretion for dreamers is solely based on the individual's claims. Our orders are if an alien says they went to high school, then let them go," he said at a press conference with GOP senators. "Officers have been told that there is no burden for the alien to prove anything. ... At this point we don't even know why DHS has criteria at all, as there is no requirement or burden to prove anything on the part of the alien.
"We believe that significant numbers of people who are not dreamers are taking advantage of this practice to avoid arrest," he said.
Crane cited one case in which, he said, an immigrant facing criminal charges was let go under the policy. Further, he complained that officers are "under threat of losing their jobs" if they defy the policy.
ICE didn't respond to those allegations directly but said allegations of fraud and abuse will be investigated.
The press conference comes just days after the Federation for American Immigration Reform, an anti-illegal immigration group, released a report claiming the administration has worked for the past three-and-a-half years to undermine immigration enforcement.
ICE, though, defended its operations Thursday evening -- noting, as it often does, that the agency is only funded to remove roughly 400,000 people a year and has to prioritize. The prioritization under this administration has been to fast-track for deportation those accused of serious criminal offenses and potentially give a reprieve to those who aren't.
"Because the agency encounters more removable aliens than it is able to process, the agency prioritizes its resources on aliens whose removal have the greatest impact on public safety and the integrity of the immigration system," spokeswoman Gillian Christensen said in a statement. "ICE's efforts to target the agency's enforcement priorities are paying big dividends. For each of the past three fiscal years, ICE has removed more criminal aliens from the country than ever before and more than 90 percent of ICE's removals fell into one of the agency's enforcement priority categories."
She disputed the notion that the policy impacts public safety, but she said the agency meets regularly with union representatives "to discuss our goal of ensuring public safety by focusing on the removal of individuals who meet our enforcement priorities."
In light of the accusations Thursday, she added that "the agency will aggressively investigate allegations of fraud and abuse of the deferred action process."
The allegations from the union were expressed in unusually blunt terms Thursday.
George McCubbin, president of the National Border Patrol Council union, said the Department of Homeland Security has made it impossible for agents to do their jobs.
Crane said it's led to disorganization and "confusion" at ICE.

Where can i find a good and cheap cold air intake for a 1.8L 2000 mazda protege es
Well, I live in Minnesota and it's absolutely FRIGID here right now. I have two dogs; a Staffordshire Bull Terrier and a Boxer, neither can handle the cold weather for very long. This is a problem because they're both very energetic and love their daily walks, but right now it's impossible for them to be out there for more than 10 minutes MAX. I do have a coat and boots for them, but they suck and it's the second pair of boots I've gone through for BOTH of them just this winter. I can't find good, quality boots anywhere. Any suggestions? I'd really like some that go high up on the legs, with straps, rather than the ones that just cover the foot. If there are truly none out there, I was considering trying to make some. Has anyone done this? If so, how'd you do it?
I'm thinking about going into fashion technology in my local community college. I like any other girl am into clothes and accesories, but not into having so many that clutters my closet, but inventing and watching your creations come to life. It is just so rewarding. My mom showed me since an early age how to use a sowing machine and how to make old clothes into new ones. My question is IF YOU ARE in this field, how would you explain a normal day in class and if you are already working, is it hard? Where do you work? Anything, tell me how much you love it and give me your best advice PLEASE!!! Thanks so much in advance for your answers.
