This situation continued until about the last 20 years or so when Spartina started to die back. At the same times there has been a slight rise in sea level and dredging has taken place at the margins of the West Solent. Now the northern coast of the West Solent is changing quite fast from a quiet water coast of salt marsh and some mud flats into a coast with small sea cliffs.
A mean, sick city, Nelson Algren wrote me after arriving as a correspondent for the Atlantic in Saigon late in 1968. Pimpery, parades, Col. Ky, thousands of cowboys on Hondas with nothing to do all day and night but race the streets. This film is about overpopulation and the growth of vast service bureaucracies. The FDA and AMA and the big drug companies are like an octopus on the citizen. You dying of cancer, see? The doctor gives you no hope, wants you out of his office as quick as possible because you don carry health insurance or qualify for Medicare.
Continuing drought motivated the Holt family together with Tom, Richard, Louisa and the children to return to the coast, initially leaving most stock at the cattle station to be collected later. After winding up his affairs Richard was 50 in debt and was required to sell much of his furniture, some of which had been sent from England. The two brothers did not always get on and Tom did not help with moving the stock or any other arrangements, apart from travelling to the coast and renting a property at Hexham from former Colonial Surgeon, Dr George Brooks.
Growing up in Littleborough, a suburb of Manchester, Deyn never dreamed she would land on the cover of a magazine, not to mention have a handbag named after her (Mulberry’s putty colored Agyness bag). But Deyn caught the fashion bug early on, switching her hair color from pink to blue on a whim and ultimately even changing her name from Laura Hollins to something that would stand out, just like her. She took her style cues from guys, not girls.
What would you do with a billion dollars? Unlikely as it may seem, in March you’ll have the opportunity to enter a bracket that will potentially win you roughly the GDP of the Solomon Islands as part of the Quicken Loans Billion Dollar Bracket Challenge, backed by Berkshire Hathaway patriarch Warren Buffett. All you have to do is correctly predict the outcome of every game in the upcoming NCAA Division I Men’s Basketball Tournament, something that has never been achieved. Given the 9.2 quintillion to one odds, the chances of seeing a winner are beyond infinitesimal, but since this is a stats blog, I wanted to see if there was any way to use the numbers to get an advantage when chasing the billion dollar brass ring..
