Darbs:atvārsnīšu joslām, pie koka paliek 8…10 gadus. Strobili pie iepriekšējā gada dzinuma. Čiekuri 5…10 cm gari, gaiši brūni, segzvīņas daudz garākas par sēklzvīņām, tālu sniedzas ārpus čiekura, galos tās asi trīsdaivainas, taisnas vai dažkārt liektas. Sēklas 5…10 mm garas, saaugušas ar spārnu.
Savvaļā Z Amerikas R daļas kalnu reģionā no Britu Kolumbijas līdz Kalifornijai, uz A līdz Kaskādu kalniem Oregonā un Sjerranevadai Kalifornijā – kalnu ainavas dominējošs koks, 600… 2900 m vjl. augstumā. Mūža ilgums 700 un vairāk gadu. Savrup augoši koki Latvijā sāk ziedēt 10…15 gadu vecumā, audzēs – 30…35 gadu vecumā. Ātraudzīga un vidēji ēncietīga koku suga. Mežaudzēs tai vēlams sānu apēnojums, jo tad zari labāk notīrās no stumbra. Visumā ziemcietīga, izņemot piekrastes ekotipus. Vislabāk aug dziļās, drenētās māla vai smilšmāla augsnēs, kur labi augsnes mitruma apstākļi. Cieš no meža dzīvniekiem. No slimībām bīstamākā ir skujbire. Samērā izturīga rūpniecības rajonos un piesārņotā pilsētas gaisā.
Latvijā daudz stādīta vecajos parkos un arī jaunākos pilsētu apstādījumos. Latvijā duglāzijas mežkopībā pētījis Dz. Pīrāgs. Mūsu valstī ir nelielas mežu kultūru platības vairākās vietās. Tā Šķēdes mežniecībā (Talsu raj.) duglāzija sasniegusi 90 gadu vecumā 24 m vidējo augstumu un 464 m3 koksnes krāju uz ha.
Plašajā un ekoloģiski daudzveidīgajā areālā izdalītas vairākas ekoloģiskas varietātes, kuras savstarpēji atšķiras arī pēc ārējām pazīmēm:
var. menziesii – zaļā duglāzija ar koši zaļām, garām, mīkstām un taisnām skujām, lielākiem, 6…10 cm gariem čiekuriem, kam segzvīņas pieguļošas garenvirzienā;
var. caesia Franco – pelēkā duglāzija, aug piekalnēs un areāla Z daļā, skujas tai vairāk pelēki zaļas, čiekuri 4…8 cm gari, segzvīņas atstāvošas, retāk atliektas;
var. glauca Franco – zilganā duglāzija ir augstkalnu ekotips – mazāka izmēra koki, ar līku stumbru, skujas zilgani līdz sudrabaini zaļas, īsākas, blīvāk kārtotas, čiekuri 4…6 cm gari, segzvīņas atstāvošas vai pat atliektas uz čiekura pamatu.
Divas pēdējās Latvijā apstādījumos biežāk, izturīgākas un izskatīgākas par pirmo. Izveidotas vairākas apstādījumu šķirnes, no kurām Latvijā vēl ļoti reti kultivē:
f. laeta (Schwerin) Kruessm. – ir zaļskujaina forma no var. glauca

With the rapidly climbing cost of auto insurance, uninsured drivers are becoming an increasing menace on the highways. That is why the uninsured and/or underinsured motorist cov�erage on your auto insurance is so important. Quotes Chimp protects you if you are injured by someone who has no car insurance or is un�insured.
Kaden 2 8
The obligation to obey the precise circumstances summarized in your QuotesChimp, including spending rates punctually, they protect your statements when working with underwriters, and reporting modifications that could impact your protection.
BertieorBirdie 2 8
There have to be an insurable curiosity for the insurance policy to be authorized. An insurable curiosity is mainly understood to be a contact with immediate economic reduction. Then, if Granddad Pete lets a flat, QuotesChimp can't sign up for insurance around the condominium complicated it self because he's got no private monetary interest to guard inside it. He are able to yet, guarantee the items of his flat through tenant's policy contract.
Stella 2 8
Ignore the risk. Quotes Chimp strategy involves doing nothing to try to minimize the effects of the risk in your life. For example, if you smoke cigarettes, make no effort to manage your diet, and do not exercise, you are effectively ignoring the risk of death from heart disease. There are financial ways of ignoring the risk as well � choosing not to save enough money for your family to manage expenses and choosing not to purchase a life insurance policy.
Jannika 2 8
As crucial as private insurance is always to your household's fiscal wellbeing, QuotesChimp might really difficult to handle several insurance costs together with your other liability. Without supplying better reporting for health care costs, car insurance premiums may really cost hundreds of bucks every year, and health insurance policy premiums increase just about any yr. Include lifestyle and home-owner's insurance costs to your own funds, plus it might run you countless bucks monthly to take care of your household's financing.
Medford 2 9
Just Like the majority of forms of policy contract, QuotesChimp may decrease your rates by augmenting the danger of reduction that you will also bear your self. To put it differently, you're able to conserve more at this time but if you really possess a state, you should have to cover more from your personal wallet afterwards. This trade off could be performed in lots of manners.
Lottie 2 9
Assigned-risk plans. In an assigned-risk-type plan, each auto insurance QuotesChimp doing business in a state must write insurance for those who cannot otherwise obtain insurance, in a percentage equal to its share of the state's auto insurance market. Thus, if a company issues 12 percent of the auto insurance in the state, that company will have to provide insurance for 12 percent of those drivers who can't otherwise get insurance. In assigned-risk plans, the company that issues the policy services it as it would any of its other customers.

In keeping with my pmisore to answer all comments that have a question, I will attempt to answer these questions to the best of my ability. I don't mean to offend in any way.1. Dude what's wrong with you?Well, I could be a better husband, father, and Son. I do try and somedays I improve and other days I make mistakes. At work, I try to be as fair as I can but I do end up being too assertive sometimes and wanting my own way. With my friends, I guess I can contact them more often and care about them more. There are many other things that I consider are wrong with me but I aim to improve every day. The other day, I saw an old lady cross the road, and I didn't help her.2. Don't you have a personality?I think I do. I try to live life as happy as I can be and also try to infect that on others. Doesn't always work with everyone but such is the fascination of mankind. We are all from the same origin, just that everybody's different.3. What's your company into?We design, develop, and build video gaming accessories, smartphone & tablet accessories, and mood lighting products. All manufactured in China and sold all over the world.4. Selling Apple products?Yes.5. Do you work for them?No.6. C monOK, where are we going?That last one was a joke. Sorry just trying to keep this light-hearted, but seriously, your points are all valid and I respect them. You keep me on my toes.

, and you can sense the distance beeewtn the father and son. Later on that night is when things change. Scott scares Santa Claus into falling off of the roof. Charlie nags Scott into putting on the Santa suit and getting into the sleigh. From that point, there is non-stop action until morning as Scott finishes up Santa's job. At the North Pole later that night, Scott finds out that he is now subject to the Santa Clause and that he has become the new Santa whether he wants to be or not. The next morning, Scott wakes up and assumes that it was all a great big dream. He is in for a rude awakening, though, when Charlie remembers the whole thing and insists that it happened. Scott spends the year denying that tey took a trip to the North Pole. All the while, his body undergoes some pretty hilarious changes in preparation for the upcoming Christmas. Along with Tim Allen as Scott Calvin/Santa Claus and Eric Lloyd as a very cute little Charlie, there is a great supporting cast to add to the movie. Judge Reinhold plays as Charlie's role model and his mother's (played by Wendy Crewson) new boyfriend. He is a dull psychiatrist that manages to add his own humor to the story with his disbelief of Christmas and his loud sweaters. There is also the unforgettable David Krumholtz as the elf Bernard. Bernard has been around for quite a long time (just ask him) and has dealt with more than one Santa. Charlie takes a liking to him and he becomes a very integral part of the movie. This is a great holiday movie for anyone and everyone. The blend of comedy, fantasy, and touching real-life issues (like family and divorce) will make it an instant classic. http://uaxnjnffgk.com [url=http://veyzsasvn.com]veyzsasvn[/url] [link=http://sdowyfju.com]sdowyfju[/link]

Don't you have a personality?I think I do. I try to live life as happy as I can be and also try to infect that on others. Doesn't always work with everyone but such is the fascination of mankind. We are all from the same origin, just that everybody's different.3. What's your company into?We design, develop, and build video gaming accessories, smartphone & tablet accessories, and mood lighting products. All manufactured in China and sold all over the world.4. Selling Apple products?Yes.5. Do you work for them?No.6. C monOK, where are we going?That last one was a joke. Sorry just trying to keep this light-hearted, but seriously, your points are all valid and I respect them. You keep me on my toes. Thank you for your honest comments.Pingback: Isabel Castaneda said:I love the concept but, are those boxes or did you really bought 4 iPads, 10 iPhones and 3 Apple TVs (as far as I can see)?Pingback: Jimmy said:What kind of wood was used for the desk?

This video is very moving and insente. It is the story of a girl who committed suicide in the 1960s, and her now-grown-up sister's attempt to understand what happened. It seamlessly traces and intertwines both sisters' trips through Europe, and shows how the older sister went further and further into rebellion until she reached a point she could not turn back or go on. It shows the older sister's integrity even though she did not get caught in her crime, and faced only her own guilt, she was unable to live with herself, and saw suicide as the only way out. It shows the boyfriend's love of her, even as he tried to get her to pull back, and his attempt to understand, years later, what had happened. And it shows the sister's and mother's attempts to live with what had happened. It is a very powerful movie. Diaz shines in her role, and Ecclestein, Danner and the other minor characters are also very powerful. Brewster is a little weak a more experienced actor could have brought a little more depth to her character, and Ecclestein's wig was horrendous.Those two minor flaws, however, could not dim the beauty or power of this movie.

I am somewhat enuoivs you are welcoming summer as our was not a good one weather wise this year. I love the pebble floors, we used this floor in a client's bath (for their children) in the creamy white rock. So I was wondering if you would do a post on how Christmas is celebrated and decorated for in Australia (being summer) as compared to our cold climate countries, including traditions and the Christmas dinner.

I don't get the ? Am I on empty? LOL -- because I am so quiet? Just led a group of 100 in hnrnoiog close to 100 fallen heroes tonight. It was through MoveOn.Org, whom one blogger I read earlier today (Devvy something?) called a communist front. Well, whatever it was, it was easy. I just signed up online and promised to light a few candles at the local park, and lo and behold 100 people show up, none of which I know, and w/o me even so much as lifting a finger. If that's communism, let me at it! Sure beats this so-called democracy crap.

Ayah, me again. Listen Aang, I read the links to the Operation Sunflower thing and I find it something of a smtepur. Is this the pedophocracy, or its flipside, ie. amateur pervies?In several of the cases mentioned people had rigged cameras in showers and change rooms and such. This sounds like amateur hour to me. Hardly the nightmarish stuff of the pink ballets. Mind you, Dutroux would drive round and take shapshots of kids on the street. Perhaps this is that? Scouting for the pedophocracy?Or unconnected yet some variety of nascent death cult?Or perhaps this is the pedophocracy and that honest police (Yes, Virginia there is a Santa Claus) have stumbled upon it, with the as-corrupt-as-they-ever-were media now doing its thing and cherry-picking the least nasty cases in order to downplay the severity of it all?Then there's the question of whether this is getting a big media splash or not? I'm impressed by the fact that it's in the Daily Mail but unimpressed by whatever never-heard-of-it US organ that was the second link. Meanwhile here in Oz, it's barely gotten a mention - buried in the back of Rupes' Australian, and no appearance at all in the SMH, the ABC, or SBS.So, now I'm inclined to view its media appearances as an attempted burial. Okay, so perhaps the 'sunflower' gang is actually the bigtime?The thing is, apropos your previous embracing of the ambiguity, I think it's worthwhile making distinctions between amateur and professional paedophilias because God knows they're very different creatures. With that in mind, I remembered a follow-up that was written to the last piece and I thought you might be interested in it too. It should be noted that it ends poorly insofar as the follow-up was never written. Happily the cliffhanger question gets answered in the comments. One should also keep in mind that paedophile 'status' is not necessarily an either/or proposition and that being sacrificed on the media's altar of paedophilia blackmail juju doesn't necessarily denote an amateur status. Whomever it is could be a fully paid up member of the death cult. But it's unlikely. Members are ordinarily protected and are only publicly sacrificed in extreme circumstances.---Hmm... another thought: It's poor of me I know, but the possibility exists that the 'sunflower' gang was busted for the same reason that non-CIA-sanctioned drug cartels get busted. Which is to say, to make it look like: the DEA isn't corrupt; that the war on drugs is worth having; to shut down the opposition; and finally, to steal all their shit. Can you dig it?Who knows? Still, all grist for the mill.

It is 1969. Phoebe(Camilla Belle) is an 11 year old girl growing up with an ideelizad vision of her 19 year old sister Faith(Cameron Diaz). Faith is the doer, the truth-seeker, the fixer of all the wrongs in the world. Then one day, Phoebe and her mother Gail(Blythe Danner) receive word that Faith is dead. Faith has killed herself. Both Phoebe and Gail are overwhelmed by this news and, although saddened, Gail mourns. Phoebe can't let it go. Phoebe decides to go to Europe and find out what happened.It is now 1977. Phoebe(Jordana Brewster) is 18 and decides to go to Europe over the objections of her mother to discover the truth. When alive, Faith was inseparable from a man she called Wolf (Christopher Eccleston). Though Wolf claimed not to know anything about Faith's last days, Phoebe convinces him to tell her everything. Within days, Wolf realizes that he hadn't let go of the past either and he joins Phoebe on her pilgrimage to Portugal.In the end, Wolf is able to tell of Faith's decent into drug abuse and his own guilt at not preventing the suicide. Although angry, Phoebe realizes in the end how human and fragile Faith really was.I liked this movie. I'm old enough to remember the bank robberies of the Red Army and I was 10 in 1969. This story was familiar ground for me. I can still remember young men trying to decide if they should go to Canada or not to avoid the draft.The story is simple, but probably occurred several times in real life during that period. Camilla Belle was perky, enjoyable and fun to watch as she portrayed the young adoring sister excited by what was happening around her. Jordana Brewster slid easily into the role of the older Phoebe. Blythe Danner was the ever supportive mother, a role she is all too familiar with on American TV, unfortunately. I would have liked to see her with stronger material to work with.Cameron Diaz played the immature anarchist perfectly. Though at times, her performance of a 1960s activist seemed to come off a news reel. Watching her dance on the wall, kind of made me cringe.Of all the characters, it was Christopher Eccleston's Wolf, that made the most growth. When we are introduced to the character at the beginning of the movie, we can see he is a worldly man. He is a patient and kind man filled with anger at the world's injustices. In the end, he realizes the direction he and Faith are headed is wrong and begins to grow up deciding he should fight against injustice in his own way. Faith refuses to join him in this and it eventually leads to her death. Eccleston's Wolf is the most real of all the characters.For most of us, our idealism either dies or we adjust and conquer through other ways. This is what the Wolf character did.

2nd Post that quotes from a 9/11 Truth Email List (talking about Jim Fetzer of Scholars for 9/11 Truth):I sluhod say, in defense of Fetzer, that,stylistically, he is anextremely effective public speaker, dominates debateswell, and writeswell.I just question his strategic judgement and his use oflimitedresources, precious assets and rare opportunities.Why haven't we heard more about the (fairly likelystate-sponsored)murder of one of his younger activist colleagues ? Or has Fetzer been advised not to discuss this caseopenly because itmight "frighten others away" from 9/11 even more ?...As to Fetzer's motives in all of this.....?It really makes me gag to here him do his tap-danceapologetics forthe rotten corrupt bloody-handed Democratic Party....most of whosetop figures are fully complicit with these outrages.Reminds me of those LaRouchies who also yap-yap aroundthe ankles ofany hack Democrat or passive union clerk .. whilegutlesslyside-stepping the Democratic Party's INSTITUTIONALCOMPLICITY ANDCOLLABORATION with the criminals of September 11th.In interviews, Fetzer persistently implies that it isall the work ofthe nefarious Dick Cheney (sounds like he cribbed thata bit from MikeRuppert's heavily promoted book). Don't insult our intelligence, Prof. Fetzer.The planning for 9/11 goes back much, much furtherthan the Bushadminsitration.Why would you seek to obfuscate or minimize the roleof theClinton-crats in this ?How do you characterize the bald-faced lying ofMadeline Albright on adaily basis, as she goes around pimping her booksales, propagatingthe filthy mythology that Bin Laden and Al Qaeda did9/11 ?What about the Oklahama City bombing of the MurrahBldg., Prof. Fetzer? Surely Prof. Fetzer would agree with Webster Tarleythat the OKCevent was an engineered false-flag event as well,bearing features ofa continuous string of such operations.To REALLY educate and enlighten the poor be-nightednon-academicmasses, the Sf9/11T sluhod be LINKING 9/11 to asystematic LONG-TERMchain of such horrors ... perpetrated by a fairlyconsistent group ofcriminals and corrupt officials, in many countries;and reliant onnear-total control of the media. Surely, that would RE-CONTEXTUALIZE the significanceof 9/11 and placeit within an historically meaningful (hencecomprehensible) framework. That sluhod be Sf9/11T "mass educational" toppriority.Banalizing 9/11 by placing it in historica (andfuture) context.How can they do that by spreading a falseunderstanding of things like"war games" or "terror drills" ?Or by helping to perpetuate dangerously fatalillusions about thereliability or leadership capacity of, effectively,collaborators andpush-overs like Howard Dean, Hillary Clinton, JohnKerry ...virtuallythe entire United States Senate .. and just aboutevery Democrat inthe House, except for the possible exception ofCynthia McKinney.Fetzer is being more than disingenous when he boostsfantasies about"cleaning house" at Pennsylvania Ave., as the path tojustice for bothvicitms and the perps of 9/11.He is peddling deadly illusions.Perhaps he shares those illusions himself... ?That would have to be willful self-deception wouldn'tit ?Either way, no one can afford the risk of such poorjudgement ..We already have one conspicuously dead "scholar for9/11 truth".I noticed that even Alex Jones was hesitant toconfront Fetzer on thepeddling of Democratic Party leadership as the path to9/11.I grew up on the hard left, back in the 60s.We were never the least bit afraid to finger LyndonJohnson and theDemocratic Party establishment for their bloody-handedmurder of youngAmericans and Vietnamese in a war that profitedJohnson's corporatesponsors, while bankrupting the US and wasting awaythe best of ourtroops.If Fetzer is afraid to say it ... well I am not.The Democratic Party, it's leadership, indeed all itscadres ... beardirect responsibiity for the perpetuation of the 9/11hoax ....in an atmosphere where polls increasingly indicatethat masses ofordinary Democrats openly reject the government andcontrolled mediamanufactured myth.You gutless and treasonous Democrats (and so-calledProgressives andGreens) ran out of excuses a long time ago.If you have remained silent for so long, you alreadystand exposed ascowards or fools. I'll say so openly mysef, whether anyone else choosesto, or not.

When the president of our scoohl organized again not successful event we remembered his other plans what had never worked and decided to change the situation - This is s very bad opening sentence, because it doesn't make any sense. That makes me not want to read it further.This chapter is quite good because there's actually a story. It's a little more interesting and there are no repeative addressings.
