This is more specifically aimed at the Galaxy Note 3 vs. the iPhone 6 Plus debate that went on a few years ago. Since there are so many Android phones out there, there's no way to measure the durability of all Android phones. Some are made with durable materials, others aren't. However, Samsung especially got a lot of heat for making their phones (Galaxy S5 for example) out of polycarbonate (tough plastic) rather than aluminum like the iPhone and some other phones. The Galaxy S6/S6 Edge and the Galaxy S7/S7 Edge now are made out of durable aluminum with glass fronts and backs. Samsung and other companies have really stepped up when it comes to the materials they make their phones out of.
i have 2 Hollywood Junipers that have grown tall above the roof line. They are in my front garden framing a large window. When I planted them I had no idea they would get so tall. I live in Louisiana (Mandeville, zone 8b). The bottoms are bushy with new growth, about mid-way they are spindly and the central leader is very exposed, I want to cut it off. We get a lot of high-gust wind and rain in the spring that blows the tops to where they get caught on the eaves. I always have to straighten them by pulling the center of the plant(s) straight… I’ve been told this variety is hard to prune I really don’t want to move them. Can I just cut the ugly part and let it go? Id rather prune than remove or transplant. I will send pictures if provided a link where to send them.
On closer look, we have reason to believe the happy trends are likely to continue. Take racial discrimination. In 2000, Harvard sociologist Lawrence Bobo penned a comprehensive assessment of the data on racial attitudes in the United States. He found a “national consensus” on the ideals of racial equality and integration. “A nation once comfortable as a deliberately segregationist and racially discriminatory society has not only abandoned that view,” Bobo writes, “but now overtly positively endorses the goals of racial integration and equal treatment. There is no sign whatsoever of retreat from this ideal, despite events that many thought would call it into question. The magnitude, steadiness, and breadth of this change should be lost on no one.”
