Did you miss out on earning United elite status through January 2018? Well, check your inboxUA's sending out offers to buy status, just as American began doing late last year . One TPG contributor who earned Gold status in 2015 but will be dropping to the Member (everybody else) level at the end of this month received the following offer: Yes, $1,399 is a tremendous amount to pay for United Premier Silver status, which many thousands of customers can actually get for free through the Marriott RewardsPlus partnership . With that program, Marriott Platinum members can get United Silver status without any flying at all — and since Marriott is now instantly matching Starwood elite status, this offer applies to SPG Platinum members as well . Not only that, but we value United Silver status at just $920 — and that's assuming you fly enough to earn it through flight purchases.

Cover with vinegar or nearly cover with vinegar. In a large sauté pan over medium heat, toast the pumpkin seeds until fragrant and just turning to color, 5 to 7 minutes. Check often and stir frequently. Transfer seeds to a plate to cool. Wash the kale, if necessary, by submerging it with cold water in a large bowl. Let it sit for 10 minutes to allow the dirt to settle. Dry using a salad spinner, then transfer to large salad bowl. Dry with additional towels or paper towels if necessary. Tear the kale into small pieces. Make the dressing: In the bowl of a food processor, purée the garlic, mustard, Worcestershire, lemon juice, vinegar, mayonnaise, salt and pepper until smooth. With the motor running, pour the oil down the food pusher insert so it enters the processor through the teensy pinhole. Purée until smooth. Dressing should be emulsified and pourable.

Around 8.30am that morning his family were still cowering inside when they heard the sound of military vehicles. When we saw the vehicles at the end of our street we jumped up and down and hugged each other, crying. In Andalous district on Monday, soldiers continued to patrol the streets and check homes for hidden explosives. Then, word came through on the radio that an ISIS car bomber was speeding towards them. In the final seconds before the explosions, soldiers tried to kick down the door of a nearby house for cover. The bomber made it through a line of parked civilian cars and detonated his explosives 100 meters away from Colonel Muhanad. The earth shook and the windowpanes shattered. Two humvees were partially destroyed by the explosion and the car left a giant crater in the street. No soldiers were killed but the driver of one humvee was injured.

There has been a viral video by TED Talk speaker Simon Sinek about millennials in the workplace that has been very hot over social media newsfeeds during recent weeks. If you haven't seen it, it is a must. Check it out here . Then, read on! In summary, the video suggests the millennial generation is struggling in the real world because they were not given the tools and social skills needed to survive and thrive in a corporate work environment. It then goes on to challenge corporations to find better ways to nurture and mentor millennials instead of throwing their hands in the air. As camp professionals, we have had the opportunity to work with, coach, raise, mentor and employ hundreds of millennials over the past 27 years. We have witnessed the evolution of what Mr. Sinek discusses in his interview first hand. He talks about how the millennial generation is often characterized as "entitled, narcissistic and unfocused".

It's classic canvas and rope bag perfect for casual day trips. The Marta Mini is a little sturdierdouble straps, a synch rope, and a leather bottom. Lakotos said he was inspired by the early outdoorsmen - the likes of Yvon Chouinard and Jake Burton. Those guys went out there and didn't have high tech gear. They just had passion, desire, and a spirit that was simply excited to be. He wanted these bags to recall those times. And we think he's done well. We're excited to have these bags in the shop and honor, as YKRA calls it, "Vintage Hiking." Sailor Pack Red doing the dang thing Check out all the bags here .
