Vet, so smooth and flavorful, it's unlike any Canadian liquor you've ever tasted. Straight, mixed, or on the rocks, Yukon Jack is truly a spirit unto Itself. The movie as is belongs to kitkler, who reads between the lines.
The Hunter has pace, humor, humanity and rcc! It's the story of a man born to live in a frontier world that no longer exists, so he takes a pig chasing crooks around Chicago.. Then lie flies home exhausted to L. The Hunter 1 s chief plot gimmick is that the hunter is being hunted by one of the homicidal maniacs he sent back to jail. At times there seems to be more going on in this movie than director Buzz Kulik can comfortably handle, though he manages, and McQueen's sta- bilizing presence from episode to episode: helps a lot.
Mc Queen is what you mean when you call a man cool, yet The Hunter lias some charmingly unheroic human touches. Best of the current lot is Philippe de Br oca's lightweight Practice Makes Perfect, With Jean Roche fort starred in a stylish, trifling and spicy fable about a man who has a collection of delightful wom- en to complicate his life.
Annie Girar- dot r Danielle Darrieux, Nicole Garcia and winsome Catherine Alric top the list of past and present wives, mistresses or what have you. They are creatures who'd fill the bill for any man's roman- tic fantasies, which helps make Practice as typically French and savory as a languid afternoon of girl watching in a sidewalk cafe.

The ensuing developments are the basts of the story, which I'm told is a "comedy with meaningful undertones. Producers of the film are confident they have a major box-office smash in the making, so be prepared, come December, for a big publicity push contrived to make the two newcomer- stars overnight sex sym- bols. Explains producer Walter Cohlenz, a former Oscar nominee: "We're doing this picture straight. Tin's is not high camp or comedy.
R airier, we are making a movie that's a simple story, with old-fashioned values, that's going to make people feel good. But one little detail that has just come to my attention is i he fact that Caveman is practically a silent movie. There arc, apparently, only about 15 words of dialog up to the end of the film, and you won't find any of those words in an English dictionary — they're all Stone Age lingo meant to con- vey various emotions such as fear, love, etc.
Barbara Bach. Carefully engineered cone Exclusive design frequency response Flut Bpiiter provider h] bi- linear extension This driver has more research, technology and engineering behind it than most entire speaker systems. Conventional systems use woofers and tweeters with a crossover network to send lower frequencies to the woofers and high frequencies to the tweeters.
Each driver covers the full range of audible frequencies. There is no crossover coloration, because the crossover network itself is eliminated. The heart of the Bose HVC driver is a low impedance 0. So for maximum efficiency in the Bose coil, rectangular wire is tightly wound on edge to form a netix.
Incredibly thin and durable in- sulation assures ruggedness at I irljcillv wound, al-alu- minum voice ceil extreme power levels. So rugged, that the insulation and bonding can withstand a pulse power test of approximately 4, watts per coil. In- production performance goals for the HVC driver re- quired a degree of dimensional control for the coil never attempted before.
Bose re- sponded by design- ing and building its own highly ad- vanced computer- controlled winding equip- ment to hold coil tolerances to within 0. And Bose developed quality control procedures as remarkable as the driver itself.
To date, more than 30, man-hours have been spent de- veloping the HVC driver and One of nine ceramic mag- nets totalling 53 lbs. Charge your rickets in advance and you're covered on your way to and from the air- port in a taxi, bus or airport limo. Don't leave home without it. It's a pretty good question, and one that has at least a couple of good answers. In part, that is a by-product of the eco- nomics of travel a gen try, where the ongoing deep discounting of air fares and the continually more complex rate structures have meant that agents have to spend more anil more time unravel- ing confusing tariffs to earn less income, It's no wonder that they have increased their concentration on die commercial traveler.
To see for ourselves just what the situation was for an economy-minded international sojourner, we did a little primary research this past summer. They also asked for the least expensive way to get from London to Athens and back on a side trip, all to take place during October.
From the response that we got in virtually every case, you might have thought we had asked lor passage to the moon. I guess the most surprising phenomenon was how little interest die travel agents seemed to have in even trying to satisfy our requests. One agent in West wood even tried to sell us a tour package, though the last departure date lor the proffered tour was September 19, to return September 28, So much for an October trip.
Furthermore, not one agent among the six we queried even mentioned Laker's Sky train service standard service New York to London. Getting us accommodations proved even thornier. Oh, we got lots of sug- gestions about very pr icy Sheratons, Inter Continentals and H ikons Inter- national, but the best bargain suggestion offered was a Holiday Inn. In no case was the price for any room offered to us even close to our requested budget. This was especially odd, since some weeks before, we'd clipped an article from one of die travel trade magazines that announced a new toll-free number for a hotel-rep organization set up to help Americans reserve bargain under per night per person accommoda- tions in London.
As a matter of fact, the article noted one number especially for travel agents and another for con- sumers who wanted to call direct Yet each agent merely flipped open the current edition of the Official Airline Guide and read out the published fare between London and Athens — approximately round trip.
In every case, the agent didn't know one. Well, most Europeans and lots of sav- vy Americans do. They know that intra- European air fares on the scheduled carriers are among the most expensive on [his planet, so no n- expense-account European vacationers routinely make their way around Europe via some form of package tour.
But even if you took the meal vouchers and hotel chits and immediately flipped them into the near- est trash can, just Ehe transportation savings would be sufficient to pay for far better accommodations at a smarter hotel. I've only begun to scratch the surface of the specific information about travel to, in and from London that the travel agents we queried either did not have or were unprepared to provide to our researchers.
Admittedly, the six agencies canvassed hardly represent a majority of the nearly 17,01 0 U. A travel agent is in business to make money, and responds with greatest zeal to that client who provides the greatest portion of his or her livelihood. So the budget traveler is largely left to do research on his own, and how well or how poorly he does depends to a great extent on the individual effort expended.
In fact, each bottle is so important, it bears its own lot number. It's expensive, yes. But it's also exceptional. And isn't that what matters to somebody who appreciates fine Bourbon most of all? I was the best man at his wed- ding and feel that I ought to offer some kind of moral support during the current crisis. One of the guys at work suggested that we get together and throw a horn-again-bachelor party.
What do you think? We have always considered the basic bachelor party a monument to bad taste and bad liming. The groom is forced to con- sume ncar-toxtc quantities of alcohol and for dangerous drugs. When avail- able, films of an adult nature are shown for educational reasons.
A woman of low repute but extraordinary athletic abil- ity is asked to perform certain quaint acts to celebrate the impending toss of freedom. The ritual usually leaves the groom in no shape to face the actual ceremony, let alone the commitment to a mature relationship. However, those same ingredients might make a terrific celebration of a new freedom and keep your friend from feeling isolated. Cama- raderie is a. It I leave it loose, the vest billows in front like a cowcatcher on a locomotive.
If I pull it tight, the material gathers until I look like a sack of potatoes. What's the prop er way to wear it? The proper way is to wear it as an ornament, which it is. A vest should fit snugly with or without the belt The same holds true if it has elastic instead of the belt. Often, a store tailor, in order to avoid work and the cost, will adjust the bell during a fitting rather than tailor the vest. Do not allow that; tell him you want the vest tailored.
Buying a suit is an investment that gets more expen- sive all the time. It could take a couple of fittings before you get your money's worth. We are currently de- bating what form of birth control to use. We've discussed the diaphragm, but all the women she has talked with say that they hate the thing, both be- cause they have to stop sex to insert the rubber cap, and because the use of the spermicidal foam eliminates the at- tractiveness of oral sex.
What do you recommend? ML, Dallas, Texas, The pill spoiled everyone — we could make love and fall asleep.
We didn't have to think about birth control. As a result, we've gotten out of practice. Of thinking, that is. There is no reason I hid a rhythm method der? How do you think Greek Week got its name? As for the dia- phagm's interfering with the momen- tum of the sex act and eliminating cunnilingus — nonsense. The liberated couples we know simply engage in a few preliminary rounds of sex in various attitudes, and then, when everyone final- ly comes up for air, or for a postorgasm cigarette, a few minutes are set aside to prepare for the tide bout.

C an you tell me what fcuille de rose means? J came across the phrase in a short story. At first. I thought it might be a wine, but the French dictionary defines it as "rose leaf," In the story, a guy asks a girl if she has ever enjoyed some feuUte de rose, and she follows him up to his apartment. If it's not wine, it must be a sexual act. Am I on the right track? The phrase refers to lingual stimula- tion of the perineum, making it a brief layover on the sexual act known as "around the world " If it feels good, a Frenchman has a utord for it.
O ver the past few months, I've no- ticed that a lot of my old girlfriends and female co-workers are beginning to date younger men. Another woman said that she is keeping a year-old at her house in die Hamptons, just for the fun of it.

The attraction begins the relationship, but the exchange of needs sustains it. The quality of the mutual gratification depends on the development of the indi- induals involved. Since I was a little girl, I've been violently opposed to rules. Why should J deprive myself of my adventure, which is my life, of going through something for the first time because perhaps I am not 20 anymore? Wiry should I defer to society in that wtry?

I've never had an orgasm. Instead, 1 put on a good act in bed while we're making love, and ray husband thinks I'm satis- fied. I feel like I'm missing out on something in life.
A couple of friends who are bisex- ual have often invited me over to get better acquainted. I don't want to seem over eager, but they are women and lliey know what women need for sexual satis- faction, I've mentioned the invitations to my husband, and he thinks it's a great idea. It would fulfill his fantasies of being in bed with two women. I kind of like the idea, but not with my Friends. Should I find some other women on my own?

EBecause the air around here is often laden with dirt from the nearby steel mills, I have to be extra-cartful in cleaning my records.

You're doing two of the three things you should do to prolong record life where the needle meets the disc.
The third, stylus cleaning, is just as important. There are several commercial kits available that will do the cleaning job. Basically f they contain a brush with closely spaced fine hairs and a solution to dissolve the dirt and wash it away. Use it often. Do not try to substitute tap water if either that solution or your record-cleaning solution should run out.

Resistance increases with the square of the vehicle s speed: twice the speed produces 4 times the resistance. The engine power requred to overcome this drag increases with the cube of the vehicles speed twee the speed requires 8 times higher power Thus, even a small reduction in drag can result in a farge increase in fuel economy.
Ferdinand Porsche was among the first to reduce drag through body design The Porsche benefits from 70 years of Porsche aerodynamic development. Its drag coefficient is a low 0. And ft requires only 15 hp to cruise at 55 mph. Air does not impact uniformly on a moving vehicle. In fact, air-flow creates rones of high and lowpressureon a vehicle's surface.

For example, the air that passes beneath a moving vehicle tends to collect, compress, and build a cushion between the vehicle and the ground, contributing to lift.

Here are five things to watch for when the Redskins get the ball rolling in Ashburn. Is the starting job his to lose? RGIII is the most compelling player the Redskins have had in years, and the team knows it — they are even limiting his media appearances this summer to prevent burnout. And while it appears the team got better on paper with the acquisitions of Pierre Garcon, pictured, and Josh Morgan, neither player has ever had a 1,yard season.
The Redskins have plenty of depth at the running back spot, but each player has the kind of nagging questions that wind up making the position feel unsettled rather than well-stocked. Tim Hightower back from an ACL injury , Roy Helu and Evan Royster all have their strengths and weaknesses, which will make this one of the most interesting position battles throughout camp, where one drop, fumble or missed read could shuffle the depth chart.

The Dry Facts. I t is a fact that every living thing on Earth needs. It is estimated that. At the three-day limit, most humans will do whatever they have to, to get water. And where do I get it? From my home, and therein lies the following tale. Experts say that we in the greater Southwest re - gion of the 48 states are in a severe drought, if not an extreme drought.
It has been ongoing for the last 12 years now, even though we have had some good moisture in several of those years. Simply put, a drought occurs when we receive less moisture in a year than what we should have for the norm.
Here is what I found. In our case, picture a large swimming pool with a deep end and a shallow end, all of which lies underneath the entire Mimbres Val - ley all the way to Deming. Silver City sits at the shallow end and Deming sits over the deep end. According to the US Geological Survey, the Gila Group Aquifer varies from 46 feet to feet in depth, while Deming sits over a pool vary - ing from feet to 2, feet in depth.
The average depth of water under or near Silver City is feet. In between the Gila and Mimbres aquifers is a connector that is more shallow, with a depth of feet under where the mines are. So the shallow end of the swimming pool is not equal everywhere. That means that as the entire aquifer lessens in overall depth, the shallow end will deplete before the rest. Before doing this research, I always envisioned the aquifer below us as a big, open pool of water, covered over by earth and rock—sort of like a huge underground lake.
So not all of the water in the aquifer from here to Deming is accessible, including that in the Gila Group Aquifer. These aquifers all receive their supply from snowpack in the mountains that melts and goes un - derground via rivers and winter streambeds. When snowpack is deep and heavy and winters cold, the aquifers are replenished. When snowpack is nil, there is an ongoing drop in the water table below us; that is why some domestic wells run dry. Sum - mer monsoons do help, but mostly they affect sur - face areas.
In and , the last years that studies were completed, the drought had barely gotten started; the. But people from Pinos Altos to Deming were using the water at a rate of , acre-feet per year and we were bringing the aquifer level down by 33, acre-feet per year.
And that was during the good times before the pres - ent drought! As per data, the Gila Group Aquifer outputs water to three main sources: 15, acre-feet dump directly into the main Mimbres Basin; 9, acre- feet go to domestic wells, both private homes and municipalities; and a significant amount of 1, acre-feet emerges via the Mangus Spring west of the Continental Divide along Hwy.
From what I gather, the mines do not tap into the Gila Group Aquifer, but get their water farther east. Silver City retrieves its water from four main wells, and in , we used 2, acre-feet; Bayard took acre-feet; Santa Clara took acre-feet; and Deming took an astounding 4, acre-feet but from the deep, main aquifer. These wells penetrate into the aquifer to depths between and feet. They yield , gallons per minute, with an average of gallons per minute.
In , there was a total water storage in the Mimbres Basin Aquifer of 45 million acre-feet of fresh water—but remember, not all of that is available for usage. Also remember that we are constantly debiting that amount by using more than it is taking back in. W ho uses all of this water? Where does it ac -. I was astounded to see that the. Remember, just one acre-foot is , gal - lons! The next in line are all of the domestic wells at 34, acre-fee, and last are the mines that take out 18, acre-feet per year.
In spite of all of this, in we had plenty of wa - ter to go around, and probably still do. In the last two years the Gila basin has not re - ceived any snowpack that is worth mentioning, so the aquifers have received far less input than back 11 years ago. There are no current data available to tell us what the level of the aquifer is at now. What that usage amounts to is not available as far as I can ascertain. If the drought continues, in spite of summer rains, both private and public wells will have to go deeper to sustain output at an unknown cost to all.
Will the Gila Group Aquifer go dry? I doubt that, but only time and the drought will tell. This current drought! By the way, virtually every climatic source that I read has predicted a long-term drought for the Southwest, and maybe we are even on the verge of a mega-drought. Only time will tell.

When hik - ing in a desert environment, water can be very hard to find. If stuck, try digging a hole in an ar - royo, place a collection con - tainer at the bottom, and place a plastic bag over the hole. Secure with rocks. Place a stone in the middle of the plastic bag. Condensation will build in the. Another option is to tie a bag around a leafy tree branch.
Overnight, it may collect condensation. May I suggest that bringing more water than you need is an even more helpful hint. As an exercise, I attempted the two suggestions above for water col - lection. I learned that these collected only a small amount of water and I probably expended more sweat digging the hole than I collected water.
