According to the New York Times, sleep studies have been conducted to see how much {sleep|slumber|shuteye} people actually need.

But what about those {nap|rest|snooze|slumber}{stealers|pillagers|crooks|looters} like work and other things that are so nefarious and seem like you have to get them done no matter what? It doesn’t matter. {Sleep|Slumber|Shuteye} is the most {important|vital} thing.

    18. “the hallowed front page of the New York Times”

      the mindset that the Times (and other newspapers) get past. That is the root of the problem. All history aside, for me today in 2009, the newspaper is probably the least efficient means of getting the news. In the front page of the New York Times is not “hallowed” to the vast majority of people.

I think they got a little over-confident. be mad at Japan just because they beat the United States in the final.

Tintin remains generally unknown in the United States, though he is of folk-lore in Europe and the rest of the world. However, Peter Jackson – Steven Spielberg’s stunning cinematographic adaptation in 3D IMAX (review) has helped a bit in popularizing Tintin in USA.

Агентство приводит имена задержанных — это 19-летний Джейк Ингланд и 32-летний Элвин Уоттс. Подозреваемые были арестованы в воскресенье, 8 апреля, в небольшом населенном пункте Терли (Turley) к северу от Талсы. Там они жили в одной квартире. Ингланд и Уоттс были задержаны в нескольких кварталах от своего дома. На след подозреваемых удалось выйти благодаря анонимно предоставленной информации. В операции по задержанию участвовал вертолет. Оба задержанных — белые. Были ли нападавшие расистами, пока неясно. По данным AP, накануне нападений, 5 апреля, Ингланд оставил в Facebook запись, в которой утверждал, что чернокожий ровно два года назад застрелил его отца. При этом Ингланд, которому, по всей видимости, принадлежал аккаунт, использовал расовое ругательство (его страница позднее была удалена). Как пишет The New York Times, подозреваемый в убийстве отца…

      That being said, my university subsidizes copies of the New York Times during the school year, so I automatically get a subscription with my tuition anyway; there would not be an incentive for me to pay for online access in addition.

      2. Note that the New York Times, unlike the LA Times, credits someone who is on the ground in Kenya, which means that you may or may not be accurate in suggesting that the New York Times just interviewed people “on the phone.”
