The town has been a flashpoint in recent weeks as militias backed by Iran have tried to get near the U.S. garrison, prompting U.S. coalition jets to strike back. Tanf lies near the strategic Damascus-Baghdad highway that was once a major weapons supply route for Iranian weapons into Syria. The Jordanian army said it destroyed a car and two motorbikes in the incident. The army statement did not give any details of the identity of the men and whether they were smugglers or militants in the area where Jordan's northeastern borders meet both Iraq and Syria. The statement however said that before the shooting, a convoy of nine cars had approached from the Tanf area but fled after the army fired warning shots. Islamic State militants launched a suicide attack last April on the heavily defended base in which the Pentagon said an estimated 20-30 IS fighters were involved. U.S. jets bombed the militants in the hit and run attack.
The banner pictured Sherman holding the Restonic logo and just a few well chosen words: “Bob Sherman” in the lower left corner and “Space B926” in the lower right corner. Call that his new business card, an invitation to his many retail friends, a shot across the bow of his new competitors, or even a monumental exercise in vanity. I heard several opinions about exactly what Sherman intended with the dramatic banner, but one point is beyond question: The industry was once again buzzing about Bob Sherman. And I think he liked that. Sherman’s big statement on the banner front was the highlight of my twice-a-year exploration of the bedding banners that stand tall as ชุดเครื่องนอน 6 ฟุต retailers enter the WMC campus. Also generating plenty of attention was the building-high banner on Building A, which pictured the pieces of a puzzle coming together to make a mattress. “The Coolest Tech In Sleep,” the banner proclaimed, belonged to Beautyrest Silver. Another cooler sleep message (do I see a trend here?) was on a parking deck banner touting Serta iComfort, which is “smarter, cooler, better than ever.” Yes, there is a cool-sleeping concentration in bedding circles these days. Serta also promoted its new Perfect Sleeper line, which it said offers “better looks, better feels, better values.
