TULSA, OK—Stressing that the part-time administrative assistant should book a flight as soon as possible, sources confirmed this week that all of 28-year-old Hailey Allen’s problems stem from her never having visited Europe. “All her relationship hang-ups, low self-esteem, and failures at work would immediately disappear if Hailey finally experienced the grandeur of the La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona or tossed a coin into the Trevi Fountain in Rome,” said concerned sources, noting that every single one of Allen’s professional and personal issues could be resolved with even just a weekend spent exploring the streets of Paris. “The moment she bites down into a Parisian pain au chocolat at a café, she’ll immediately transcend her current self, becoming a fully matured, well-rounded, and happy person. To clarify, this is only applicable for Western European countries and does not include Asia, Russia, or any nation East of the Baltic … [Read more...] about All Of Woman’s Problems Stem From Never Having Visited Europe
The ESA’s governing body gathered in Spain last week to decide on which proposals they’d move forward with and fund.

So if you want to pick up your car from the port, you'll need to get a TWIC card — or you'll need to pay for an escort with a TWIC card to bring you to your vehicle. You can also hire a truck driver with a TWIC card, who can pick up the car for you — but he's going to charge a little extra for the journey, since not every trucker is TWIC-equipped. … [Read more...] about Here’s Everything You Need To Know About Shipping A Car To The U.S.
A reminder: Consumers (you) are the primary losers in trade wars, since tariffs inevitably trickle down to raise the price of goods. Let’s do some quick back-of-the-envelope calculations. The Volvo XC60, which is imported from Sweden and currently starts at $41,500 would cost $51,875 with an additional 25 percent tariff tacked on. The Subaru WRX, made in Japan, starts at $27,195 and might cost $33,994. Or how about the German-made BMW 3 Series which starts at $34,900? That could go up to $43,625. … [Read more...] about Advisors Are ‘Fighting’ to Stop Trump From Imposing 25 Percent Car Tariffs: Report
Conjunction of Spheres Mass upheaval of the Continent’s societies was not the only chaotic element of the human age.

During the Conjunction of Spheres, portals were opened to new realms allowing beasts and creatures from other worlds to come into our own. The Conjunction also allowed magic into the continent, which in The Witcher is essentially the ability to control chaos energy that permeates the world and gives it form. … [Read more...] about A Medievalist’s Guide to Decoding
