Partially cooked squid inseminates woman’s mouth

The 63 year old suffered “severe pain” and a “prickling, foreign body sensation” in her mouth after taking a bite of the partially cooked seafood, according to a study published in February in the Journal of Parasitology.

The unidentified woman spit the squid out immediately, according to the report, but not before the cephalopod injected its sperm bags into the mucous membranes of her tongue and cheek.

She went to the hospital, where doctors apparently found a dozen “small, white spindle shaped bug like organisms” which they believed to be parasites in the woman’s mouth.

Researchers later determined that the organism were sperm bags not parasites.

They believe that the bags were discharged as the woman chewed.

The bags are ejaculatory apparatuses that slowly release sperm when attached to a female’s body, according to Fairfax New Zealand News.

This isn’t the first reported case of a squid trying to inseminate a human mouth. Several people in Japan have complained of oral stings after chowing down on the seafood, the news site reports.

Dana Staaf of the blog “Squid A Day” said that most calamari lovers have no reason to freak out.

Most Western squid preperation removes the internal organs of the cephalopod or boils the seafood long enough to kill the sperm bags.

christian louboutin outlet Partial thromboplastin time

Partial thromboplastin time

partial thromboplastin time (PTT) or activated partial thromboplastin time (aPTT or APTT) is a performance indicator measuring the efficacy of both the “intrinsic” (now referred to as the contact activation pathway) and the common coagulation pathways. Apart from detecting abnormalities in blood clotting,[1] it is also used to monitor the treatment effects with heparin, a major anticoagulant. It is used in conjunction with the prothrombin time (PT) which measures the extrinsic pathway. Kaolin cephalin clotting time (KccT) is a historic name for the activated partial thromboplastin time.[2]Blood samples are collected in tubes with oxalate or citrate to arrest coagulation by binding calcium. The specimen is then delivered to the laboratory. In order to activate the intrinsic pathway, phospholipid, an activator (such as silica, celite, kaolin, ellagic acid), and calcium (to reverse the anticoagulant effect of the oxalate) are mixed into the plasma sample. The time is measured until a thrombus (clot) forms. This testing is performed by a medical technologist. Shortening of the PTT is considered to have little clinical relevance, but some research indicates that it might increase risk of thromboembolism.[3] Normal PTT times require the presence of the following coagulation factors: I, II, V, VIII, IX, X, XI, XII. Notably, deficiencies in factors VII or XIII will not be detected with the PTT test. APTT may indicate:

Sepsis coagulation factor consumption

Presence of antibodies against coagulation factors (factor inhibitors)

To distinguish the above causes, mixing tests are performed, in which the patient’s plasma is mixed (initially at a 50:50 dilution) christian louboutin outlet with normal plasma. If the abnormality does not disappear, the sample is said to contain an “inhibitor” (either heparin, antiphospholipid antibodies or coagulation fac christian louboutin outlet tor specific inhibitors), while if it does correct a factor deficiency is more likely. Deficiencies of factors VIII, IX, XI and XII and rarely von Willebrand factor (if causing a low factor VIII level) may lead to a prolonged aPTT corre christian louboutin outlet cting on mixing studies.

christian louboutin outlet Partial Tax Deferred Exchanges

Partial Tax Deferred Exchanges

Back in the day I used to teach after tax cash flow analysis to house agents wanting to venture over to what they often referred to as the Dark Side. It was spread over a few classes, one of which was the bottom line effect of tax deferred exchanges. Usually there was an investor or two in the class. Without exception they were more than mildly surprised, sometimes chagrined to learn 1031 exchanges weren analogous to being pregnant. What? Huh? They thought you either executed an exchange or you didn in the same sens christian louboutin outlet e you can be partially pregnant. You either are, or you not.

Reason: You may wish to withdraw some cash from the exchange proceeds paying the capital gains tax. This is known as taking You may want cash, not now, but in the near future, yet still want/need to exchange some/most of the property equity, tax deferred. Y christian louboutin outlet ou willing to pay the capital gains tax on the future gain (cash received).

Reason: You have the ability to offset a portion of the gain you deferring through the exchange. Maybe a capital loss, or unused depreciation sittin on the shelf.

Here a partial tax deferred exchange we executed for a client. It was one of the fun ones.

First, let take a look at what the client needed to happen along with the facts of his situation at christian louboutin outlet the time.

He was nearing retirement from his $185,000/yr job, having planned it for the early summer of 2004. It was October of 2001 when we began to set the wheels in motion for this transaction.

His net equity was roughly $300,000.

He wanted a christian louboutin outlet n immediate $50,000 in cash from the proceeds tax free if possible.

Though retiring in 2004, an EIUL wouldn begin to pay out 2006. He wanted a few years of supplemental income to augment his real estate cash flow then.

Here how I structured the transaction

1. Split 30% down payment 20% at closing, with the remainder in the new tax year just 30 days later.

2. Owner financing this killed three birds. First, it allowed for the second installment of the down payment through a principal pay down in the note. Second, it reduced the taxes on that second payment because of it timing the new tax year mentioned earlier. Third, it provided the supplemental income he wanted while waiting for his tax free EIUL income to commence.

3. Really a bonus derived from 2. The note was due and payable in the summer of 2006 a year when his taxable income would be very low, relatively speaking.

The timing was exquisite, as it was the end of the calendar tax year, and perfect for splitting up any gains into two tax years. We did this by employing a split down payment. The 30% down payment was split into an initial 20% at closing, followed a month later (A new calendar tax year.) by the remaining 10%. The latter was in the form of a principal pay down in the financing my client carried back.

The net proceeds from the down payment/new senior loan was dutifully exchanged, tax deferred.

When the note balance was paid off in 2006 (and right on time), my client, then 64, added $15,000 of it to his cash reserves, which had already been impressive, and immediately bought a separate EIUL which he planned to let simmer at least a decade for even more tax free income.

To summarize his tax returns in the following years showed the following.

His 2001 return showed a portion of his proceeds were exchanged for more property, all of which was tax deferred.

It also showed a $115,000 note given as part of the purchase price, which was treated as a partial installment sale. He pays taxes on the interest in the year received. The payments were interest only.

His 2002 return showed the receipt of a $45,000 principal pay down on the note. Some of this was treated as return of capital and not treated as gain. The remainder was treated as gain, and subject to capital gains tax. However, he offset that gain with unused depreciation, eliminating any tax owed. This met his need, (almost) for the $50,000 he wanted immediately. It was $5,000 short, and 30 days later than but he was content.

His 2006 return showed his note paid in full. He was able to offset just under half of the capital gain portion (return on capital) by using the rest of his unused depreciation. His tax bill was much lower than it could been.

None of this happened by itself, as it was part of a pretty detailed Plan. What it illustrates clearly, is what possible when you learn the answers to questions you never knew to ask.

christian louboutin outlet Partial Business and Regulator

Partial Business and Regulatory Impact Assessment

Purpose and intended effect

Background Seed certification is a European Community requirement to ensure that farmers and growers receive seeds of a known minimum quality. This is achieved in Scotland through marketing regulations, which ensure that seeds of the main agricultural and vegetable species can be marketed only after being examined and certified as meeting specified minimum EU standards and as being derived from crops which have also met specific EU variety registration standards.

Objective Charging for services transfers the cost from the taxpayer to the user who benefit directly, giving a fairer distribution of public resources and lowering public expenditure. This means charging for these services at full cost recovery.

Rationale for Government intervention Scottish Government policy for setting fees and charges for all statutory and commercial services is for full cost recovery with charges set accordingly. Scottish Ministers have given their assurance to the Rural Affairs, Climate Change and Environment Committee, that the statutory fees charged for seed testing, seed certification, and associated licensed activities should be reviewed on an annual basis. They have reviewed the processes and procedures and have work closely with RPID and the OSTS Scotland to identify cost effective ways of carrying out this work. SASA have provided the cost for undertaking this work and predicted the increases required to make full cost recovery in financial year 2014/15.

Public This partial BRIA will accompany the consultation which will be issued on the 7March2014. The consultation documents will be sent electronically and by post to all interested parties registered with Scottish Government. An electronic copy will also be placed on the Scottish Government website. No informal consultation has taken place.

Business During the consultation period, Scottish Government will meet with a cross section of the seed industry.

Option 2 Increase fees to achieve full cost recovery in financial year 2014/15.

Sectors and groups affected Seed Merchants, Processors and Packers Licensed Seed Testing Stations (LSTS) Licensed Seed Samplers Licensed Crop inspectors Farmers Benefits Option1 no increases to fees. Public money continues to be used to subsidise services that will directly benefit industry.

Option2 Scottish Government achieves full cost recovery and allows for the service to continue at a sustainable level.

Costs Option 1

Scottish tax payers subsidising the agricultural industry, would require additional funding to the agriculture budget. The current cost of providing statutory services for seed marketing is 205,000. In 2013/13 a total of 193,000 was recovered through fees. If this is not addressed, the deficit will increase over each financial year and would see the tax payer subsidising services that should be covered by the industry using it.

Option 2

Will introduce increases of between 0.5 16.7% for the seed industry, to insure full cost christian louboutin outlet recovery and no subsidisation. Scottish Government can produce rough estimates of increased costs on the services they provide, based on the information available to them through the certification system. However, we cannot account for cost that cover labour, fertiliser, agrochemicals, equipment or other overheads that could be associated with producing grain. Grasses costings example (only Scots Timothy grown and Certified in Scotland)

Statutory Service/Function Proposed Fee Fee (per tonne, assuming 10 tonne lot) Init christian louboutin outlet ial Fees 4.25 per ha 3.19 Crop Inspection Fee 18.50 per ha 13.88 Seed Lot Fee 33.00 3.30 Seed Lot Re Entry Fee 35.00 3.50 (not applied) Sampling Fee 50.12 5.01 (not applied) Seed Testing 74.34 7.43 HVS verification 7.00 not applicable Fee cost per tonne 27.80 per tonne. Scottish Firms Impact Test

To get a better idea of what these proposed increases will mean for Scottish individuals / companies, Scottish Government will need to speak to a cross section of the seed industry. Interviews will take place during March/April and our findings will be summarised in the christian louboutin outlet Final BRIA, which will be published christian louboutin outlet along with any responses we receive.

Competition Assessment We do not anticipate any impact on competition however we will update this section after interviews with industry.

Test run of business forms No new forms for business to fill in will be introduced as a result of our proposals.

Part one of a three

Dexter Manley walked into a pawn shop one day in 1998 and slapped his 1983 Super Bowl ring on the table. Sweat was dripping down his face. He was desperate, about to be kicked out of his house.

More than a bed to sleep in, though, he needed cocaine, a habit he figures cost him $2 million over the years. He sold the ring for $1,000 and snorted it away abracadabra . green money turned into white powder.

Fourteen years later, at age 53, the 6 foot 3, 250 pounder, who, as a defensive end, made life miserable for NFL quarterbacks such as John Elway, Neil Lomax, Doug Flutie, Danny White and David Woodley, has his ring back.

He has kicked a cocaine habit that sent him on 37 trips to rehab centres. He has been sober for six years.

After reading at a Grade 2 level throughout much of his early adult life, he can read and write, tossing words such as intrepidation and dichotomy into his sentences.

He has found purpose in a life that was plagued by bad decisions jailed christian louboutin outlet four times at times homeless and hopeless.

He no longer threatens to kill himself. Manley reportedly called 911 more than 20 times to keep from hurting himself, and once was talked off the ledge of his apartment.

He doesn drive expensive, fast cars or expensive, fast women. He had 103.5 sacks during his 11 year NFL career. He was given a $45,000 signing bonus and $60,000 salary in 1981, his rookie season.

I was at the table, chopping up the cocaine, listening to Johnny Taylor. I thought I had really arrived. I thought I was somebody. and champagne became the high life.

But while he was being bad off the field, he was good, damn good, on the field.

In 1986, he had 18.5 sacks, selected to play in the Pro Bowl . while putting much of his salary up his nose. It caught up with him.

By 1989, he had failed his third drug test. In 1991, he failed his fourth.

He served 15 months of a four year sentence at Harris County Jail in Houston after pleading guilty for two counts of cocaine possession on Aug. 4, 1995.

I had money when I went to Houston but, in nine months, I was homeless, they repossessed my car, I was living on the doorstep of the YMCA where they run me off. I stayed six or seven months in a hospital. I was a menace to society, in and out of rehab centres. It took me over 15 years to get a one year chip of sobriety. battles in the trenches, trying to outsmart and outmanoeuvre behemoth offensive linemen, were nothing compared to the battle inside, demons that never seemed to go away.

Greenwood means just one member of one christian louboutin outlet of the National Football League’s greatest defensive lines is still with us.

Greenwood, 67, died of kidney failure at Pr christian louboutin outlet esbyterian Hospital in Pittsburgh, the city’s Post Gazette reports.

Greenwood, “Mean” Joe Greene, Dwight White and Ernie Holmes formed the front line for what became known as the “Steel Curtin” defense christian louboutin outlet during the Pittsburgh Steelers’ glory years in the 1970s. The team won four Super Bowl titles in six years.

Holmes was killed in a January 2008 car crash.

Greene turned 67 last week, and was a Steelers special assistant for pro and college personnel until May of this year.

The Post Gazette adds that “nicknamed ‘Hollywood Bags’ and known for wearing golden shoes, Mr. Greenwood quickly established himself with the Steelers [after being drafted in 1969]. In 1971, he had five fumble recoveries, which tied for the NFL lead. In 1974, he posted a career high 11 sacks.”
