    When we talk about high safety with Mercedes, it does not apply specifically for protection from accidents, but this means safety of their personal data as well. To be able to provide that, we have to keep control, and we can’t do that when it is collected by Google.

    There is an ideological reason for running, but let's not separate that from a path to victory, primaries happen when multiple candidates see a good opportunity. Democrats have good opportunities in multiple states this cycle, specifically in Maryland. The Democratic nomination is incredibly valuable because Maryland is a Democratic state. Lots of candidates see paths to victory and think, 'Why not me? Why not now?'.

  4. Brooke Binkowski:

    These headlines... are written specifically to elicit an emotion. That's how the scammers make their money, they are not just written to inform. I keep telling people if you read a headline and( after reading it) you're ticked off and you're angry and you're frustrated, then double check that source because you need to know whether or not it's legitimate.

  5. Jermaine Griggs:

    Because I paid attention to my customers’ individual needs and actions from the beginning, they don’t mind and often never think of my emails and texts as automated, i attribute almost all my phenomenal success to the relationships I have with my customers, every bit of which is fueled and strengthened by automated follow-up that comes directly from me—messages and information specifically tailored to them, their interests, behaviors, and needs. They feel personal, not robotic, and even though the correspondence customers get is computer-generated, these systems have grown my bottom line and lifetime customer value by double- and triple-digit percentages!
