Conservative?

The Conservative Party recently sent a flyer to my house promising that, in contrast to Labour, its candidates would deliver: "Less talk, more action."

Isn't that, well, the exact opposite of conservatism?

    Hammer Storage, a division of Bell Microproducts, has released a new line of network storage devices based on Zetera’s Z-SAN SoIP (Storage-over-IP) technology. The storage devices are 4-bay configurations, which are available as either desktop (Z-Box Model HZD4B) or 1U rackmount (Z-Rack Model HZR1U) enclosures. Targeted at the small to medium-sized business storage market, the Z-Series line offers an economical approach to SAN storage. IP is the only storage fabric used, eliminating the requirement for host bus adapters, TCP offload engines, dedicated switches, and RAID controllers. wow goldworld of warcraft goldbuy wow goldcheap wow goldwow power levelingwow powerlevelingwow goldworld of warcraft goldbuy wow goldcheap wow goldwow power levelingwow powerlevelingwow goldworld of warcraft goldbuy wow goldcheap wow goldwow power levelingwow powerlevelingThe Z-SAN architecture affords solution providers an inexpensive, fast, scalable storage alternative.

    WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Banks in the United States kept tightening lending standards and terms for both business and consumer loans over the past three months out of concern about a weakening economic outlook, according to a Federal Reserve survey issued on Monday. ADVERTISEMENTThe April survey of senior loan officers at 56 domestic banks and 21 U.S. branches and agencies of foreign banks also underlined that demand for loans from businesses and consumers was weaker -- though not as markedly as in January."Substantial majorities of domestic and foreign respondents pointed to a less favorable or more uncertain economic outlook and to a worsening of industry-specific problems as reasons for tightening their lending standards on C&I (commercial and industrial) loans over the past three months," the Fed said.Harm Bandholz, an economist with UniCredit Markets, said the Fed findings implied that a broad-based credit crisis "has spilled over to the real economy and will continue to weigh on investment and consumer spending for some time."diablo 2 cd keydiablo 2 cd keydiablo 2 cd keywow goldwow goldwow goldworld of warcraft goldworld of warcraft goldworld of warcraft goldbuy wow goldbuy wow goldbuy wow goldcheap wow goldcheap wow goldcheap wow goldwow power levelingwow power levelingwow power levelingwow powerlevelingwow powerlevelingwow powerlevelingmaple story mesosmaplestory mesosmaple story meso2moons dil2moons goldage of conan goldaoc goldaoc power levelingage of conan power levelingaoc levelingaion goldbuy aion goldaoc goldaoc power levelingaoc levelingaoc goldaoc power levelingaoc levelingaoc goldaoc power levelingaoc levelingThat will be accentuated by declining job opportunities, Bandholz suggested.
