As remote control toys go, this is a little boy's dream! The M1A2 US Armed Forces M1A2 Abrams Remote Control Tank is based on the United States Army third-generation main battle tank. Named after General Creighton Abrams, former Army Chief of Staff and Commander of US military forces in Vietnam, the M1 is a well armed, heavily armored, and highly mobile tank designed for modern armored ground warfare. First entering service in 1980, Abrams remains the principal main battle tank of the US Army and Marines, and the armies of Egypt, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, and AustraliaThis 1:24 scale battle tank takes the traditional toy tank and gives it a modern twist! Like the real Abrams, the turret rotates 330 degrees and features a realistic recoil movement after cannon firing operation. Plus the barrel aims up and down - what great ballistic action! The tank itself rotates 360 degrees and can be driven forwards and backwards, and can perform left/right turns and pivot turn. And with all terrain vehicles, it is capable of climbing 45 degrees on a non-slip surface. As your tank breaks through enemy lines, it also sounds like a true battle vehicle with realistic sound effects when idling and driving, noises for turret rotation, barrel-up and barrel-down manoeuvres and cannon firing. In fact, gun firing sounds are activated according to actions. So enlist your plastic toy soldiers and get armed to do battle with this 1:24 scale battle tank. Features: M1A2 US Armed Forces M1A2 Abrams Remote Control Tank Working front lights and realistic sound effects for driving, idling and firing Fully directional - toy tank rotates 360 degrees and moves forwards/backwards with left/ right and pivot turns Climbs 45 degrees on non-slip surface Turret rotates 330 degrees with realistic recoil after
The Betrayal of American Prosperity: Free Market Delusions, America's Decline, and How We Must Compete in the Post-Dollar Era - Clyde Prestowitz

CONSIDER THIS SHOCKING FACT: while China's number one export to the United States is $46 billion of computer equipment, the number one export from the U.S. to China is waste--$7.6 billion of waste paper and scrap metal. Bestselling author Clyde Prestowitz reveals the astonishing extent of the erosion of the fundamental pillars of American economic might--beginning well before the 2008 financial crisis--and the great challenge we face for the future in competing with the economic juggernaut of China and the other fast-rising economies. As the arresting facts he introduces show, the U.S. is rapidly losing the basis of its wealth and power, as well as its freedom of action and independence. If we do not make dramatic changes quickly, we will confront a painful permanent slide in our standard of living; the dollar will no longer be the world's currency; our military strength will be whittled away; and we will be increasingly subject to the will of China, Russia, Saudi Arabia, and various malcontents. But it doesn't have to be that way. As Prestowitz shows in a masterful account of how we've come to this fateful juncture, we have inflicted our economic decline on ourselves--we abandoned the extraordinary approach to growth that drove the country's remarkable rise to superpower status from the early days of the republic up through World War II. For most of our history, we supported our home industries, protected our market against unfair trade, made the world's finest products--leading the way in technological innovation--and we were strong savers. But in the post-WWII era, we reversed course as our leadership embraced a set of simplistically attractive but disastrously false ideas--that consumption rather than production should drive our economy; that free trade is always a win-win; that all globalization is good; that the market is always right and government regulation or intervention in the economy always causes more harm than good; and that it didn't matter that our

Review of Air Arabia
Advantages: Epic Sir David Lean Best Picture Disadvantages: Very sandy!
...Heroic, grandiose, momentous, significant, tremendous, huge, vast and monumental are just a few of the synonyms suggested by my thesaurus when looking up the word 'epic', and I can declare, unflinchingly, that Lawrence of Arabia deserved the American Film Institute's recent declaration that it is the best epic film ever if we are to judge it by those few synonyms? it even leaves you...
Advantages: Online/offline synchronised documents, easy to share, simple to use, good range of features Disadvantages: Inaccurate word count, danger of deleting documents, a little complex to open non-Google Docs
...?s unlikely to vanish entirely, but even if it went down for a day, it could be a huge problem if I needed to access something I had written online. So I continued writing offline, and backing everything up onto my memory stick.
