Hence the mood of markets is clearly facing a bit of a crossroads. Trouble in Europe has gone well beyond Brexit, and the Italian debt issue has added additional downward bias on the Euro and Pound and squeezed out some extra gains for the USD. The heavy weighting of the Dollar index on the Euro makes it extremely easy for the USD rise while the Euro is struggling, something worth considering if ever trading the DXY.
An ex-English teacher posting on Tumblr (@bigbutterandeggman) argues that “yes, by applying today’s worldview to the song, it does sound like a rape anthem but the song makes sense in the context of a society in which women are expected to reject men’s advances whether they actually want to or not. The woman is perfectly sober and about to have awesome consensual sex and use the drink (offered to her in the song) as plausible deniability because she’s living in a society where women aren’t supposed to have sexual agency .. It’s not a song about rape, it’s a song about a woman finding a way to exercise sexual agency in a patriarchal society designed to stop her doing so”.

When conditions did not improve, the passengers demanded to see the captain of the plane. However, when the pilot did pay them a visit, he too tried to pacify them without giving them a proper explanation. A video recorded by one of the passengers showed the pilot announcing, “Now the systems are warmed up, we will start the pushback and the temperature onboard will be normal.”
Taken maybe a smidgeon more seriously than its creator intended, “Baby, It’s Cold Outside” is the story of a woman doing battle — not with a guy who won’t take no for an answer, but with the expectations of a society that won’t take yes for an answer. The most critical word in the whole piece is “ought,” as in, “I ought to say no, no, no sir.” She isn’t trying to fend off advances — she is mouthing excuses so she can “at least… say that I tried.” He won’t face judgment sneaking home, whereas she can tick off at least three family members who’ll notice when she sneaks in after hours. It’s not just the kinfolk but a nation of suspicious minds there at the door, waiting to sniff the cigarettes, booze and boys on her breath. At least two out of three of which she is explicitly the one asking for, by the way: “maybe just a cigarette more,” she requests, along with “maybe just half a drink more.” She is not being plied with alcohol — she is plying herself, with intoxicating stalling tactics she hopes will make the “spell” of romance and sexual chemistry finally out-loom the specter of the family scowling behind the porch light.
Overall, I was super impressed with the Krone Trailer Pack. The shuffling around of trailers, as well as trucks, now adds a whole new dimension to the immersion in Euro Truck Simulator 2 . They are also working on the next DLC: Beyond the Baltic Sea — which I eagerly anticipate. I’ll get to drive around in ‘the three Baltic states of Latvia, Lithuania and Estonia, and also south of Finland and parts of Russia including Russia’s second largest city Saint Petersburg.’ My decision now is to whether I want to share my new baby (trailer) with the other two drivers. I mean, c’mon, it’s brand new. I bought it, they didn’t. What if they scratched it or something?

In a 2×2×2 factorial open-label parallel-group trial, treatment-naive adults, adolescents, and children >5 years old infected with HIV, with cluster of differentiation 4 (CD4) <100 cells/mm 3 , from eight urban/peri-urban HIV clinics at regional hospitals in Kenya, Malawi, Uganda, and Zimbabwe were randomised 1:1 to initiate standard triple-drug ART, with or without 12-week raltegravir intensification, and followed for 48 weeks. The primary outcome was 24-week mortality, analysed by intention to treat. Of 2,356 individuals screened for eligibility, 1,805 were randomised between 18 June 2013 and 10 April 2015. Of the 1,805 participants, 961 (53.2%) were male, 72 (4.0%) were children/adolescents, median age was 36 years, CD4 count was 37 cells/mm 3 , and plasma viraemia was 249,770 copies/mL. Fifty-six participants (3.1%) were lost to follow-up at 48 weeks. By 24 weeks, 97/902 (10.9%) raltegravir-intensified ART versus 91/903 (10.2%) standard ART participants had died (adjusted hazard ratio [aHR] = 1.10 [95% CI 0.82–1.46], p = 0.53), with no evidence of interaction with other randomisations ( p heterogeneity > 0.7) and despite significantly greater VL suppression with raltegravir-intensified ART at 4 weeks (343/836 [41.0%] versus 113/841 [13.4%] with standard ART, p < 0.001) and 12 weeks (567/789 [71.9%] versus 415/803 [51.7%] with standard ART, p < 0.001). Through 48 weeks, there was no evidence of differences in mortality (aHR = 0.98 [95% CI 0.76–1.28], p = 0.91); in serious (aHR = 0.99 [0.81–1.21], p = 0.88), grade-4 (aHR = 0.88 [0.71–1.09], p = 0.29), or ART-modifying (aHR = 0.90 [0.63–1.27], p = 0.54) adverse events (the latter occurring in 59 [6.5%] participants with raltegravir-intensified ART versus 66 [7.3%] with standard ART); in events judged compatible with IRIS (occurring in 89 [9.9%] participants with raltegravir-intensified ART versus 86 [9.5%] with standard ART, p = 0.79) or in hospitalisations (aHR = 0.94 [95% CI 0.76–1.17], p = 0.59). At 12 weeks, one and two raltegravir-intensified participants had predicted intermediate-level and high-level raltegravir resistance, respectively. At 48 weeks, the nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NRTI) mutation K219E/Q ( p = 0.004) and the non-nucleoside reverse transcriptase inhibitor (NNRTI) mutations K101E/P ( p = 0.03) and P225H ( p = 0.007) were less common in virus from participants with raltegravir-intensified ART, with weak evidence of less intermediate- or high-level resistance to tenofovir ( p = 0.06), abacavir ( p = 0.08), and rilpivirine ( p = 0.07). Limitations of the study include limited clinical, radiological, and/or microbiological information for some participants, reflecting available services at the centres, and lack of baseline genotypes.
This is in stark contrast to the majority of the landscapes over in American Truck Simulator , which mostly consists of dry, rocky deserts and valleys. ETS 2 has always had more greenery than its sibling title, and now the amount has been boosted even more. Speaking of ATS, it’s amazing that a lot of US states are actually a lot bigger than many European countries. Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia look like dwarfs compared to the likes of California, Arizona, and New Mexico. Even having started in Poland, going all the way up to Finland and back down to Lithuania, my total play time so far is only at a little over four hours—and I’ve only visited about half of the 24 new cities and towns included in this pack. Thus, Beyond the Baltic Sea is sure to keep you entertained for quite some time with all of its new scenery to explore.
