    • Encounters with such people have become more frequent as cuts in government-funded mental health services have thrust police into the role of first responders for those in psychological crisis. One in every 100 police calls involves a person with a mental health disorder, according to research by the American Psychiatric Association. Too often, experts say, officers see Tasers as a go-to weapon in those circumstances.

    • Pipeline opponents say ancient natural water basins beneath the Nevada-Utah state line aren’t naturally replenished in today’s arid climate conditions.
    • The judge acknowledged the complexity and expense of a project to deliver enough water to serve more than 165,000 homes a year across a distance comparable to a drive from Los Angeles to Las Vegas.

    • Throughout this period Hitler and Himmler sponsored a fanciful doctrine known as “World Ice Theory,” which posited that history, science, and religion could be explained by moons of ice hitting the earth in prehistoric times.
    • ‘Don’t case officer a case officer’…. You can BS everyone else, but you don’t BS your colleagues.”
    • But mostly because the books have so many more elements at play than the TV series: the Fake Aegon, Lady Stoneheart, Victarion Greyjoy, Jeyne Poole (whom Ramsay Bolton marries and claims is Arya), and more.

    • Ipsen is General Manager and Senior Vice President for the Oracle Marketing Cloud. She is responsible for leading all customer-facing aspects at Oracle Marketing Cloud including sales, account management, marketing, and customer support and services.
    • Ipsen currently sits on the Board of Directors of Monsanto since December 2010.[
    • They fall into the party’s trap, and as soon as Jon slices open the white walker, all the wights but one immediately crumble into dust. Who knows why this happens, but it is convenient for our band of heroes, who are out to capture one wight.
    • Somehow, Jon and his buddies have survived (Thoros of Myr excepted) on a barren rock in a frozen lake surrounded by an army of thousands of ice zombies long enough for a raven to get from Eastwatch to Dragonstone and for Dany to ride north with all three dragons. Worrying about space and time is pretty much a lost pursuit at this point in the season.
    • Dany melts a ton of zombies and things appear to be working out until the Night King grabs a javelin and hurls that fucker into one of the minor dragons, sending it crashing into the ice. Big Crossbow may not have been enough to stop a dragon, but the Night King just Randy Johnsons that fucker right out of the sky. It’s hard to watch as its eyes close and it slips into the lake, dead as bricks.
    • He makes it back to Eastwatch, and somehow no major characters died in that ludicrous battle.

    • Arya, now a swaggering uber-assassin, is scary as shit as she threatens to skin Sansa and forces her to play the game of faces before leaving her with a wink and the dagger.
    • Jon, whose scars are now exposed, tells Dany that he wants to bend the knee and the viewer is made to believe that they’re about to bone.

      They do not bone.

    • Instead, the episode ends with the Night King’s army corps of engineers dragging the dead dragon (pretty sure it’s Viserion) out of the lake.
    • we got a dang frost dragon on our hands, folks.
    • That is, until this year, when his security clearance was revoked.
    • For the past five years, he also worked in a day job as a civilian analyst for the Office of Naval Intelligence — until early last spring, when he lost his clearance to work with sensitive compartmented information.
    • Posobiec says that he deployed as an ONI civilian multiple times, a claim backed up by former colleagues — though, he adds, “I can’t comment on those” deployments.
    • However, analysts say much of that rapid reception was propelled by bot accounts, not real people, many of them aligned with Russia and with Wikileaks.
