On Aug. 15, five months to the day from her first symptom, Carrie took a gamble and held her breath. She accepted her first catering gig in nearly six months, a brunch for six of her friends. Before all of this, she would have sailed through this event in her sleep. But now it feels like the Olympics. She steeled herself for the shopping, prepping, driving, cooking, and bustling around outside in the thick of Louisiana’s heavy, humid heat.

In that reality, Trump is the law-and-order president even as he foments violence in the streets of Portland, Oregon, and Washington, D.C. — or, in the case of Kenosha, Wisconsin, defends a 17-year-old vigilante (and Trump supporter) who allegedly shot three people, killing two of them. Trump’s handling of the Covid-19 pandemic is a great “success story,” to quote son-in-law Jared Kushner, no matter that the death toll in the U.S. outpaces most of the developed world.

The newly developed transmission provides quick and crisp shifts for a more engaging and efficient driving experience via the available column-mounted paddles. Despite having two extra gears, the eight-speed transmission, which was designed in-house, is lighter than the outgoing six-speed model. The automatic transmission adds ratio range at both the top and bottom of output speeds allowing for extra thrust off-the-line and a quieter, more fuel-efficient dash down the interstate. A multi-disc and individually controlled hydraulic channel torque converter improves responsiveness by expanding the direct connection band, while a downsized oil pump and double ball bearings minimize friction loss. … [Read more...] about 2019 Hyundai Santa Fe Is Bigger, Bolder, Available With A Diesel
The biggest question to ask yourself is — do you want headphones or earphones? There are fantastic options out there for both types, but it’s important to consider whether you want something that you wear as cups over your ears or if you prefer to place earbuds in your ears. Both offer pros and cons. Headphones are a more snug and secure fit, but they might feel a bit heavy or awkward when working out, which is where earphones feel comfier and less noticeable.
