The January 2014 ivory trafficking case involves the largest ivory seizure on the African continent since a global ivory ban took effect in 1990. The suspect, Dao Van Bien, and his wife run a major timber import operation in Vietnam, and Dao continues to travel to West Africa despite an Interpol red notice seeking his apprehension for suspected involvement in an attempt to smuggle a record setting quantity of ivory out of Togo last January. (See “Togo Makes Second Record Ivory Seizure.”).
We searched for representatives of tobacco companies, tobacco activists, lawyers in tobacco litigation, politicians, and medical doctors (especially industry witnesses in tobacco litigation). By applying Boolean logic we were able to pull out relevant documents for more detailed examination. Altogether some 4000 pages were printed and analysed in detail.The documents covered concentrate on the 1980s and early 1990s when the major tobacco control issues in Finland concerned public opinion on smoking, proposed restrictions on smoking, the level and structure of tobacco taxation, sales promotion, and the ongoing product liability litigation.The problem with the documents is that they have not been indexed to files or folders according to dates or topics.

I don really like intentional HBPs, but I wouldn have complained if they done it this time.However, I know it not as gratifying to some, but not interrupting Julio, the bomb from Flowers, and striking out Raffy was a much more effective form of retribution. Glad the Braves took the high road.Also, just fuck Raffy Lopez. What a dick.
In 1988, Rebecca White and Claudia Brenner were out camping and hiking when a man came upon them and then shot both of them to death because he was disgusted by them showing affection. That same year, two men were harassed, assaulted, and ultimately shot and killed because they were gay. When the murderer was convicted on two counts of murder, the judge reduced the sentence to thirty years to be served concurrently, stating that they wouldn have been bothered if it hadn been for the fact they were gay and probably “cruising the streets.”.
