Apologies: I have no idea what just happened in the quote box. Anyway, is there a "rewards" card that doesn't involve paying like the grocery store ones that would give those sorts of incentives? Until the app I never bothered. ETA: No, it looks like it's only more than one of those grocery "club" cards and payment is required.https://www.starbucks.com/card
Not when you want to make them look cheap and/or when they're such wild cards. Decommissioning is a huge complicated business and is avoided as long as possible, we still don't have a secure storage facility for ANY of the powerplant nuclear waste (instead the fuel rods are stored scattered all over the country in cooling pools waiting for some "answer"... the Nevada site built but never certified.. etc.) so how could costs be calculated? So like with a lot of messy...
Starbucks has a rewards system that's tied to the APP (free beverage for your birthday for ex.). Simply paying wouldn't be part of that? Also, you know, THIS little detail: "Starbucks was announced as a future supporter of Apple Pay for in-app purchases when the service was unveiled last year. The coffee maker has not indicated that it is planning to install NFC point-of-sale terminals for Apple Pay's tap-to-pay e-wallet functionality, however."
"the iPhone is that the charge can't last for a whole day."Huh? With an iPhone 6 Plus over ten hours of active use versus the Apple Watch's 3 or so how do you come up with that comparison? Both devices standby (when background activities such as the Health monitoring continue unabated) hours far exceed a normal day of activity so the odds are quite good both will suffice, though the phone has the edge in total battery lifetime. Which is sort of expected given how much...
Once plant retirement and decontamination costs and storage of spent fuel and contaminated parts are all added in? I tend to doubt it.
Here's a table that shows some of that, though less dramatically than compared to other cities..:http://whitefenceindex.com/service/Electricity
But then with the thieves being economically motivated why did't that drive thefts UP? Less per unit is solved by more units I would think... Though were the parts market simply TOO cheap (and I have no idea) the risk/reward might not make sense. Have to say I was expecting a rise in thefts to "make it up in volume". happy to see I was wrong.

One of the most fascinating—and important—elements of the building will be 3 levels under your feet.AC2 will sit on top of 700 base isolators.

I've been happy with my Nikon d800 for quite a while but even with that one I sometimes notice moire in architectural details so the low pass filter cancellation models, either the new 810 version or the Canon "R" had better be chosen with care or there will be a lot of time spent in the post process....   Oh and "The only difference between these two new models is the low-pass filter on the 5DS R to help photographers get the sharpest image possible." is incorrect, the...
