Tensioning the spring, preparing to unleash

Earths round each sun with quick explosions burst.

Well, it’s getting to be that time of year. We’ll be spending more time indoors than outdoors. Personally, I don’t like it. I like being able to have the windows open, being able to go outside in shorts and a t shirt. But here we are, less sunshine, colder, and snow.

So what can we do about it? Move? I guess that’s one option, moving somewhere south. Other than moving we can use the time indoors to work our body even harder. We need to substitute for not being able to do the things we would normally do outside such as running, or biking. So what exercises can we do? Circuit training is one option. A circuit comprised of different exercises. Circuits can be made up to be engaging and also challenging.

Talking about challenging, that leads me to the topic of my post, Plyometrics. Have you heard this word before? Plyometrics have been around for a while and you probably are already doing some plyometric exercises. Plyometrics is a great way to build strength, explosiveness, and stamina.

Plyometrics increase the elasticity of your muscles. This allows you to handle intense workloads more efficiently. Research is also showing that plyometrics can help in increasing bone strength by stressing your bones with explosive movements.


So why does plyometrics give us these benefits? Our muscles have 2 types of contractions. The concentric, think of the upward, or lifting motion when doing a bicep curl, and the eccentric, this would be the lowering of the weight in a bicep curl. When our muscle contracts in the eccentric phase, the muscle is lengthened. This contraction is actually stronger. Have you noticed that when you lower the weight when doing bicep curls that you are stronger? Exactly!

By starting with the eccentric contraction followed by the concentric contraction plymetrics improve the responsiveness of the neuromuscular system allowing greater force production in the concentric phase.

What plyometrics does is it lengthens the muscle before the concentric contraction, or the explosive phase. Let’s look at leap frogs. What’s the first thing we do? We lower our butt to our heels, lengthening the muscles. We then explode to a forward vertical jump. Another way to look at this is think of stretch, contract. Our first movement stretches the muscle, the second is the contraction.


It’s common when looking for plyometric exercises that you will see a lot of leg work. Jump squats, Burpees, jumping side lunges. There are even boxes you can buy called Plyo boxes which are used to jump up onto. But if we look at what a plyo is, stretch – contract, it can be applied to muscle where that contraction motion is explosive.

With pushups, our chest muscles contract as we lower ourselves, and lengthen or stretch as we raise our body. We would then want to start in the down position, explode up and then lower ourselves.

If you are looking to add plyometrics to your workout, talk to your personal trainer to find out what exercises there are, or good ole Youtube is there for you too.

What’s old is new again

Plyometrics have been around for quite a while. We probably already do a lot of these exercises already not knowing they are plyometrics. If you aren’t doing them you should. Because of the movements involved they are very intense and provide a great benefit to your cardio system.

Use these exercises as a way to add variety to your workout and keep you engaged. Fight off the workout boredom. Then when spring does roll around, you will be happy to walk outside in that t shirt, because of all the hard work you put in, and because of those awesome shoulders and legs.

Yours in health,

  3. HolaQuisiera consultar al Team acerca de si pueden confirmar o descartar un presunto reciente terremoto que habría afectado y “partido” a Groenlandia , en 2011. De igual forma si pueden confirmar o descartar la existencia de una presunta grieta que atraviesa la Antártida.El comentario que me llega dice que Nasa , rusos y presidentes ya están al tanto de esto.Les agradezco desde ya toda la información.

  4. I think the format was good for a start. More debates like this is needed in order to elect a truly qualified candidate for President. From the looks of things last night, none of them are yet qualified enough to take on the ever growing problems that the US has in and out of her boundaries. My problem was with dumb questions like who was your favorite teacher that made it through. That doesn't matter when it comes to wellfare of citizens and residents of the US.

  5. saya mencoba mengimpor blog di wordpress lewat copy paste link, dan memang nggak bisa setelah dicoba berkali-kali. baru setelah saya mengetik secara manual link di impor blog ternyata bisa. jadi kayaknya kita harus mengetik secara manual link yang akan kita impor ke facebook. tapi kalau mengetik manual nggak sekali jadi, saya harus mencoba sampai 4 kali pengetikan manual supaya linknya dapat masuk ke facebook.

  6. Nice nice, mooi stukje[quote=”ReFlex”]Één van de mooiste momenten is echter (nog) niet wetenschappelijk vast te leggen, namelijk het moment dat de ziel (roeh) wordt ingeblazen.[/quote]Precieeees, en hiermee heb ik iemand stil gekregen met wie ik dagenlang een discussie had over het geloof.

  7. Congratulations Susana & Brian! A beautiful Wedding and Reception in St. Augustine,Fl. We loved this Classic Southern Style Wedding with all of the special touches. The Pastry Studio enjoyed designing this special cake table from the wedding cake+cake pops, creating the custom dessert menus, to choosing the hobnail stands. The French Blue and Butter Yellow color palette was perfect. Dana Goodson captured the day . Below are some special moments. For the full post go to: {Dana Goodson Photography Blog}

  8. Outstanding editorial! Would like took pleasure the particular following. I’m hoping to learn to read a whole lot more of you. There’s no doubt which you possess tremendous awareness and even imagination. I happen to be really highly fascinated employing this critical info.

  9. Dienstag, 16.08.2011Hi Andreas, dieses Verhalten der App ist uns bekannt. Das liegt am iOS Betriebssystem, welches die simfy App automatisch stoppt, sobald sie im Hintergrund läuft. Wir sind schon in Kontakt mit Apple, um dieses Verhalten zu umgehen. Wir empfehlen als Ãœbergangslösung folgende Vorgehensweise: Unter Einstellungen > Allgemein > Automatische Sperre einstellenkannst du “”nie” auswählen um simfy möglichst im Vordergrund lassen. Liebe GrüßeKathrin

  10. Sage advice, Cora, absolutely. But really, this isn't about me; what I'm trying to get at in terms of the big picture is that if on-line bloggers / reviewers want to be taken seriously, then they have to accept that with power comes responsibility. Which is something that most of the influential on-line reviewers understand.Of course, not everyone has a need to be taken seriously. Which is a whole other issue.Cheers, Dec

  11. Wow! This could be one particular of the most beneficial blogs We’ve ever arrive across on this subject. Basically Great. I’m also an expert in this topic therefore I can understand your effort.

  12. Hello! This is my first comment here so I just wanted to give a quick shout out and tell you I truly enjoy reading through your articles. Can you suggest any other blogs/websites/forums that go over the same subjects? Appreciate it!

  13. se disant génialePas besoin de dessin pour saisir le rapport *logique* entre une révolution vieille de 200 ans, où la rhétorique ne suscitait pas encore d’ironie justifiée, et une révolte actuelle à l’avenir incertain…Et vous seriez grandi si vous cessiez de massacrer la grammaire française…

  17. I have no idea of whether it’s just myself or only when everyone else encountering problems with your web site. It looks like many of the written text inside your posts are running from the screen. Can someone else please review and ok, i’ll know if this is happening to them too? This is actually a issue with my browser because I have had this happen before. Thanks

  18. Hiya, I’m really glad I have found this information. These days bloggers publish only regarding gossips and internet and this is really frustrating. A clear locate with attractive subject matter, this is what I need. Recognition for keeping this website, I’ll live visiting it. Perform you achieve newsletters? Can not get hold of it.

  19. he was a Christian fundamentalist, but this guy didn’t even pray or subscribe to any church? What are these loons saying?Darwinism leads most scientists to be atheist, and most are are not shy about it. Atheism and Christianity are not compatible, no wonder this guy was sick. It’s too bad he only will get 21 years in prison, at worst. I wish he would be executed.I agree with Conny about Norway and their tight gun policy. If Norway allowed concealed carry like the US, the attacker would have thought twice about even cooking up this lame-brained atrocity.

  20. That was hilarious, Lynn! I’m in North Dakota, so I can really relate. I started reading your books when I picked up If Angels Burn at the local bookstore. I would love to win Nightbred. Jamys has always fascinated me. And that cover… Hoo!

  21. Please let me know if you’re looking for a writer for your weblog. You have some really great posts and I feel I would be a good asset. If you ever want to take some of the load off, I’d absolutely love to write some content for your blog in exchange for a link back to mine. Please shoot me an email if interested. Thank you!

  22. Charlotte, ich danke!Stefan, kannst du das ausführlicher erklären? Wie heben sie sich auf, wenn sie plötzlich da sind?

  24. Thanks!I really like dividend funds, but I don’t think I’ll be able to save up enough to generate a few thousand dollars for such repairs, so I’m going to go with Kris’s idea I’ve heard that after a house becomes 10 years old, they have issues with:water tankair conditioner/furnaceroofing tilesThen I also have some older appliances that will need replaced:washer / dryerdishwasherrefigeratorTV (this I need to replace now actually)1% sounds good (athough it would be double what I was thinking about saving).

  25. Chifif,Please, point out the last time i posted something that could actually harm someone’s persoanl reputation and jeopardize their employment through false incrimination?Glass house? Really? How about you man up and post some evidence or shut up and slink back to your hole. Or if you prefer we could just politely choose to disregard one another.

  26. Posted by on August 10, 2012 at 4:45 pm Great post and some food for thought.We all have limiting beliefs and it can limit our ability to have success. I personally started listening to postive affiration messages at night while I sleep, because it is our sub-conscious that is telling us these lies that we have heard all our life like you’re no good, you’ll never make it in that business. So we need to change those negative thoughts into positive thoughts.Suzanne Glathar recently posted..

  27. Most of the time, operating footwear are employed for jogging, physical workouts, using walks, and also jogs. They, nonetheless, are useful with regards to particular education routines also. By way of example, to be able to instruct you to finally fitness, a set of suitable cardio exercise routines shoes or boots or instruction footwear or boots is often crucial.

  29. Arthur,You attempt to make us all believe that you’re some amazing fashionisto, so I’d be remiss if I didn’t critique your utter failure in living up to those expectations when I look at your outfit above. T-shirt: Too small, too trendyPants: Are those Levis or something? Are you even wearing a belt?Shoes: Where to start? Paint stain on the toe for starters. Worn out leather that hasn’t been polished in years. But above all, who wears leather dress shoes/boots with a t-shirt? WHO DOES THAT!

  30. Thank you. I have 10 years experience as a bra-fitter and ataerltions/repair expert at Diva Lingerie in Winnipeg. Costume-design and Beauty photography are my other fields. So it all works together

  33. I was in the bunch this morning when this occurred. I called the police 5 mins after it happened. An officer met us on Rosevears Dr and took statements from several of the group. He said he would head down to Coles depot and speak to the driver.I then called Coles HQ on the mainland and the Kings Meadows store, reminding them this was the second time this had happened in the last few months. Apologies all round etc. I did feel the message got through this time.A concerted effort aimed at Coles and a letter or two to the paper may help. Mick

  36. Hello .finaly I discovered what I was searching for how did you guys found this info??thank you for your write-up I found it on Google And I bookmarked it . I’ll share. Please send me updates thank you and have a good day

  37. great! – now you can record a song you’ve learned on the guitar and post it on your blog for us to hear your progress 🙂 i concur with the God is awesome statement – though, i may have the stomach flu – He’s still rocking my face off!

  38. Yep – sure do. Saves me buying more bookshelves Plus I pay rates so I figure I should get something nice for my money & not just boring stuff like getting my rubbish picked up!Truthfully – visiting the public library has always been an essential part of my life. One of the first things I’ve done when moving into a new area is sign up for a card. What can I say? I’m a cliched librarian who loves to read!

  39. Pues sí, qué tema más apasionante que nuestros hijos. Yo el otro día estuve charlando con unas mamás experimentadísimas, madres de hijos de 17 y 26 años y ¡lo que nos esperan! Saltaron anécdotas de épocas en las que los hijos se cambiaban de cera para que nos les vieran al lado de sus papis…¡qué no me pase que no pase!

  40. here, “listen to the people you vibe with and then decide for yourself with your own testing. Since I didn't invent Twitter, I don't say how to use it…”I didn't invent Twitter, so I'm certainly not telling anyone how to use it, but I am making clear my preferences. You can use it how you want. And so will I. Ain't social media grand? (PS I absolutely wasn't dumping on Twitter – I love it, and have done since I started using it in 2006. It's an integral part of my online life now, which is all the more reason for me to want to make it a pleasurable experience, and not an irritant)

  41. Great point Seth. I can see parallels to saving stuff in our personal lives as well. The stuff we really do need is getting buried in the stuff we can’t bring ourselves to get rid of. I think this is a very real hidden cost in our business.[]

  43. “…It is my fervent hope that there many closeted but true patriots in our nations armed services, that they have the wisdom to remain under the PC radar and advance in rank, and growing both their distributed and heirarchical networks for the time when they will be so desperately be needed.”I can guarantee it. The oath is to the constitution first, officers second. We clearly understood it 20 years ago, and the young men who join now are the same guys.

  44. What we need is a new term, maybe one called 'antisemitian'. If 'antisemitic' means for non-Jews to dislike Jews, 'antisemitian' means for Jews to act in ways that lend credence to antisemitic accusations. Alan Dershowitz and Elliot Abrams are antisemitian. They are Jewish but act in ways that make antisemitism seem half-valid.If Jews were less antisemitian, fewer people would be antisemitic.

  45. Ça fait plaisir à lire, puisse tout le monde lire et comprendre ce que vous dîtes.Dès que le religieux se mêle de politique, ça n’est jamais bon signe et c’est pourtant ce qui se passe en ce moment un peu trop souvent.Et la foi n’a bien souvent plus grand chose à voir avec les actes et discours de certains qui s’en réclament.

  47. Anne: On totta, että luomu on melko luotettava keino välttää torjunta-ainejäämiä. Kuitenkin torjunta-aineita käytetään Suomessa hyvin maltillisesti, ja asiaan perehtyneiden tiedemiesten-ja naisten näkemyksen mukaan elimistöömme joutuvat pitoisuudet ovat niin pieniä, ettei niillä ole merkitystä. Toisaalta taas on monia muita haitallisia kemikaaleja, joiden saantia ravinnon mukana ei voi välttää, vaikka kuinka söisi luomua. Näillä aineilla saattaa ollakin merkitystä. Mutta sille ei voi mitään. Aineet on aikanaan ympäristöön tyhmyyksissään päästetty, joten täällä ne pyörivät.

We’re here supporting you. When you’re in the gym, remember all of your fans supporting you and joining you on that journey, one rep at the time.I train hard, but you’ve yet again inspired me to push even harder.Thanks Kevin!

  53. “our hardware is far weaker than the human brain”The brain has one advantage over current computers: massively large parallel searching/processing.The computer has numerous and very large advantages: speed, perfect memory of virtually infinite duration, unlimited memory and data storage, capacity for work (e.g.: 24/7 on a single task with no loss of efficiency), guided by logic rather than emotions and other brain chemistry, and more.

  54. Nathan,I just jumped over here from the Authonomy site. The place is swarming with fiction, HELP!I was shocked to see so few non fiction writers.

  55. சரியாக சொன்னீர்கள் தோழரே. அமெரிக்காதான் உலகின் மிகப்பெரிய பயங்கரவாதி. உலகின் மிகப்பெரிய ஆயுத உற்பத்தியாளர் யார். ராணுவத்திற்கு அதிகமாக செலவளிப்பது யார். மிகப்பெரிய ஆயுத வியாபாரி சப்ளையர் யார். தனது ஆயுத வியாபாரம் படுக்கும் போது உலகநாடுகளிடையே பகைமூட்டி சண்டையிழுத்து இரு பக்கமும் ஆயுதம் விற்று கொள்ளையடிப்பது யார். அந்த பயங்கரவாதியை விடவா பெரிய பயங்கரவாதி இருக்க முடியும்?

  56. Stunning & mouth-watering! I just discovered a wonderful Mexican market in town where I bought some prepared Mole Poblano that I'll be making tomorrow when our nephew is visiting. I'm so glad you featured Pozole, too – I always order it, but have never made it & the crock pot method is great!

  57. I feel like I wrote this post myself. I, too, and perpetually single, and don’t feel insecure by that. I’ve discovered much of the same thing over the past five years. I believe I am truly ready for the right one to come along now more than ever, and while it does enter my thoughts more than I care for it too, I know that God has it all in his hands. I always say that you can never fully love someone else until you can accept Christ’s love for all that it is, and learn to love yourself for who you are.

  58. Yeah, my interpretation of "$75 is a fair price" would be "No way are we increasing production for less than $90!"Realistically though, with the inelasticity of demand now, they make more money on the oil they don't produce than the oil they do.

  59. The Furby! Aaahh.Legos are one of the greatest toys ever invented.(Problem with Lincoln logs is after you build the cabin, then what? Another cabin? Same problem with the Lego kit for a small house–the parts are pretty much restricted to building, well, the same house over and over.)

From the hasty student who forgot about the project that is due tomorrow to the overachieving student who wants to finish the practical part of the project so that she can get to the analysis, 24-hour science projects can be used for many reasons. No matter which particular motive you might have for choosing a more time-sensitive project for your upcoming assignment, there are many to choose from that will allow you to better understand some aspect of science in a very short period of time.

  62. Hi Luke,As the saying goes, “Nothing worthwhile comes easily.” And I actually won a cake in a cake walk when I was a kid! That was great!I wanted to remind folks that the Sonlight Consultants will be at a lot of conventions around the US, Canada, England and S. Africa. People can get homeschool help and encouragement, as well as get their hands on Sonlight Curriculum at these events. Check out Sonlight’s Convention calendar to find one near you.

  63. is he overweight ? if yes then that will be part of the problem, also try and encourage him to breathe with his nose because the snoring sound is only loud when people breathe through their mouths and the air vibrates against their oesophagus.

  64. Cool feature.Sorry, but I have to rant about the new player.The volume stays open half the times I use it. Very frustrating.Can't see videos in original res anymore. Lame because there's a lot of low quality stuff that looks horrible stretched.

  65. Hey Chanson, this was fun to think about. I think if the CoEB can do elitism without the arrogance and social division, then they should go for it! If it becomes just another excuse for not listening to people who are less intelligent or have less education, then it doesn’t seem worthwhile. I’d rather get intellectualism more valued in some other way. Do you remember in HS when they gave out letters for academic achievements in addition to athletic achievements? Perhaps the CoEB can think of something better…

  66. I think it was bad timing for Madoff’s kid. Today, I bought a WSJ for the first time off a newsrack in years and I admit the Madoff story on the lead page was one of the reasons. Maybe he saw the same thing and just snapped thinking that the scandal would never ever ever go away.

  69. Some people call satan, “lucifer”. I grew up with thinking that satan was his title and lucifer was his proper name. Jerome, writing the Latin Vulgate, coined a Hebrew word, (howl) and called it Lucifer, which is, “shining”.What are some of the hosts that God created? Let’s post it as a new thought.

  70. I’d pick the Navigator or the Aviator but if you wanted a car, the Audi. Also, you have to be 25 to rent a car or to drive a rented car in Canada so if your parents rent one for you be EXTRA careful driving it cause your insuance won’t cover you. I’m not lecturing but my friend’s dad rented a car for him, someone rear ended him and it ended up costing a fortune to pay for it.

  72. Thanks, Kate & Lili. I seem to be doing self doubt in a big way at the moment and it oozes onto everything else. Lovely to have affirmations. As to the rewrite, your comments have been fantastic. Theosophy is coming into it's own and Charlie is getting more airplay – well, you'll know what that means!

If the insurance is through your employer, you should have been given a brochure with information on all the conditions the insurance covers – and the percentage of costs it covers.If you don’t have that information, call the number on your insurance card and ask to speak to someone who can verify exactly what conditions are included and from whom you can request that they send you a copy of the brochure.You always want something that is written down to have as back-up in case someone gives you conflicting information or you are refused coverage in error.

  80. This comment is hidden to you.OHHHHH Frank….you’re cookin’ now. (from Home Alone 2 – but appropriate here as well).This is a perfect addition to a project that I’m working on for a good friend. He’s been asking if there was a way we could do what Amazon does. I’ve been “tinkering” with different code to see if I could accomplish it. Now, I can get back to business and just use your plugin. Fantastic!!!!! Thanks for making this.-James  •    •  This comment is hidden to all users except to its author!

  81. I’ve gone ahead and bookmarked at Digg.com so my friends can see it too. I simply used A tribute… | Adventurous Art as the entry title in my Digg.com bookmark, as I figured if it is good enough for you to title your blog post that, then you probably would like to see it bookmarked the same way

  82. The jumpsuit was made for you and the chevron wool number is lovely on you too! Can't imagine that anything you chose to put on would be dull because you'd somehow manage to work your transformative fashion magic on it and make it spectacular xx

  83. So, sign “above average”defensive lineman – which Raji is not, who are inajury prone and let Rodgers run for his life every week? Why sign Jennings if Rodgers can’t even get him the ball as he has no time to throw? Ted Thompson, is that you writing under the name Phatgzus? Absolutely sign Matthews, but offensive line has to be important at some point. If Rodgers gets hurt, which he is already banged up, will it matter what guys we sign if our QB is Harrell? I would rather have a blood trasfusion from Charlie Sheen than have Harrell at QB.

  86. Eu cred ca o parte din populatie este deja prea contaminata si nu se mai poate face nimik (aici ma refer la toate clasele sociale), insa se poate incepe de jos de la gradi (cum ai inceput deja si pe mine ma bucura tare mult lucrul acesta, daca s-ar face ceva de genu in baia mare as vrea sa dau si eu o mana de ajutor), scoli, facultate pana in restaurante. Mult spor in tot ceea ce faci. Felicitari!

  87. The solution grid for Sunday’s Reagle wasn’t posted; I have checked back yesterday and today and still nothing. Is that going to be part of the new format? The commentary is there, but that’s all. I have to get used to the new format anyhow, but so far I like it!

  89. Hi there! I know this is somewhat off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting fed up of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at alternatives for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  91. Jesus was tested on every level, just like us, he had to live in the world and endure all the same kinds of temptations we do–having a wife, even a family, would to me, make him all the more Grace to me–but then again–actually, I am just thinking of one of my old churches and the glares I would have just had thrown at me for saying Jesus was a Man. XD Yah, I’ve been out of the system way to long…But you know, that’s just the thoughts of an uneducated female rambling Christian You make it sound much more fancy Josh.

  92. I guess I’m still one of the minority who thinks that the Church leadership deliberately got into Prop 8, knew what was going to result, and isn’t necessarily disappointed with the results. I think it was a make-or-break moment for the Church and had less to do with gay marriage than it did being a “Zions Camp” moment.

In addition, Michelle and I were merely having a little side conversation. Is that o.k. with you?

  94. Estimado Aristocrata, en el artículo que versa sobre Laszlo Vass citas el modelo Budapest, mi duda es la siguiente: he recibido el catalogo, y aparecen dos modelos parecidos pero no iguales uno es más "grueso" que el otro, a mi particularmente me gusta más el "grueso", pero no si es un modelo práctico a la hora de combinarlos. Usted que ha tenido la suerte de probarlos, qué opina al respecto. Muchas gracias, Alfredo.

  95. Doug K August 27, 2012 Bernie, thank you. Your show was great. Much more than I expected. Appreciate what you do for the military members, and even though you make a point of not having worn the “boots”, you have obviously been down the path many in the military have in personal terms. Please keep up the good works, God bless you and yours. And tell your little-big brother “HOWDY”…”HOWDY”…”howdy”!!!

  97. I am half way through ‘The Blooding of Jack Absolute’ and enjoying the novel, such that I would like to read the other two? Novels, in their correct sequence, so in which order should I read them – Jack Absolute and then Absolute Honour?Also in the above response you talk of ‘toying with the sequel to ‘Jack Absolute’ would that not have been Absolute Honour?

  98. Schönes Outfit, der Pulli gefällt mir recht gut und die Jeans hat nette Details. Der Hintergrund wirkt auch interessant, sieht nach nem coolen Second Hand Markt (?) oder ähnlichem aus, wo war das?Die Frisur steht dir toll, passt sehr gut zu dir. Hat was vom 60er-Jahre Look, aber nicht so streng und bieder, sondern lässig und stylish, deine Haare. Und das sag ich als eigentlich ausgesprochener Langhaar-Fan.

  103. only 2 comments in this whole thread – one questioning it, and one against it… 17 comments for it and / or challenging those 2… but yeah, i can see how you’ve “heard enough”… it’s called a lively discussion – and it’s worth having. It’s not ridiculous. You’re ridiculous. I hold the “all businesses can coexist” opinion. But I will not put down someone who is proud of our local independents and start-ups. Starbucks was once a start-up as well, you ninny.

  104. Kind of short-sighted. There is much political punk in the US. Look to Bad Religion, Anti-Flag, Nofx, Rise Against, Against Me, Rancid, … all great examples of contemporary punk with political leanings. As far as punk being dead, well, you can look at all of those bands to see thriving scenes, whether you deem them “punk enough” or not.

  105. Très interessant . Je me suis inccris dernièrement sur Linked In suite aux recommendations d’un chasseur de têtes.Ayant récement vendu ma compagnie et me cherchant un autre emploi Linked In permets à tous mes clients et collégues de me recommander a de futurs employeurs.En effet dans mon cas précis qui sont les mieux placés peux recommander mes 10 années de travail

  106. Between me and my husband we’ve owned more MP3 players over the years than I can count, including Sansas, iRivers, iPods (classic & touch), the Ibiza Rhapsody, etc. But, the last few years I’ve settled down to one line of players. Why? Because I was happy to discover how well-designed and fun to use the underappreciated (and widely mocked) Zunes are.

  107. It’s true — Don’t rely on any facts you see in the media.For the record: The marriage counselor’s office in question shares offices with a divorce mediator and lawyer — for your shopping convenience. Also, I do not in fact believe that “the challenges” of raising our son “helped cause” our divorce. Lastly, we have not been married 15 years — or anywhere close to that number.Cheers!

  108. The luggage tracking card sounds really a good stuff. The features of it appears to be good and useful individual when he faced problem of theft and lost of luggage.

  109. Jag försökte ocksÃ¥ med konsekvensträning -sitta och vara lugn vid hälsning, men gav upp träningen av människorna i omgivningen.

  110. 3f4I’ve been browsing online greater than three hours nowadays, yet I by no means found any interesting article like yours. It is beautiful worth sufficient for me. Personally, if all web owners and bloggers made just right content material as you did, the internet can be much more helpful than ever before.

  111. Jan, indeed. I’m still thinking about your piece from yesterday, and the work you were describing. That seems to be a good example of picking your battles, and doing what can be done, rather than agonising over all the things you can’t.

  112. It didn’t glitch my game, at least not by just browsing through the world without playing; HOWEVER, it is loaded with CC! Beware before you download! I had forgotten to use Custard before installing, and it was a hassle to uninstall all the CC (over 20 pieces, probably more). I uninstalled it, anyway, because it was too large and just not my style of world. But great work to the creators, nonetheless!

  113. Euh… des panneaux pédagogiques il en existe déjà sur toutes les routes. Attendez, de mémoire ils sont rouges et blancs, circulaires, avec des nombres « pédagogiques » à l’intérieur… 30, 50, 70, 90, 110, 130!

  115. Rastis,I guess I’m just wondering if people who use the Camel method must be intentionally using the “bait and switch” technique.What if a Messianic Jew purposely went into a synagogue to preach the gospel and was given the opportunity to speak? He starts off reviewing the history of the Israelites and the promise of the Messiah and then goes right into the core of the gospel message. Is that deceitful? I don’t see it as being that different from what you described as being a “bait and switch” technique of the Camel method.

  116. Hey there! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting tired of WordPress because I’ve had issues with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be fantastic if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.

  117. When I originally commented I clicked the -Notify me when new comments are added- checkbox and now each time a comment is added I get four emails with exactly the same comment. Is there any way you are able to remove me from that service? Thanks!

  118. That movie is free on Netflix. I really need to make a point to watch it. Several people have recommended it to me over the years. Do you remember the opening scenes of Halloween II? It briefly shows a little boy who has taken a bite of an apple and gotten a razor blade stuck in the roof of his mouth. I always cringe when that pops up in my memory.

  119. Szuper a Zsoldos kritikád Balfrász. Azt mondhatnám, az ilyen kritika a mai magyar SF életben pont olyan ritka, mint a Zsoldos regényekhez hasonlítható kvalitású regény.Egy megjegyzés: nem hiszem, hogy nagyon kéne keresgélni a tíz éves hallgatás, illetve a késÅ‘i Zsoldos írások milyenségének okát. Az ember másként lát harminc évesen, és másként ötven felett. (Nekem, mint 50 felettinek ezt nyugodtan elhiheted…)Mellesleg aligha van még magyar szépíró, aki élemüvének 4/7 része Zsoldoshoz hasonlóan kiérdemelné a “klasszikus” jelzÅ‘t…Alex Bates

  122. Saulovitch, por qué denigrar el humor. A las novelas que citas agregaría Pantaleón… y La tía Julia. Por algo esta última es la más aprecia en los Estados Unidos, sinónimo de calidad y razón irrefutable en este país tan palurdo. Y por eso VLL es quien es, porque tiene al menos 7 grandes novelas (agregaría La guerra del fin del mundo, y una pequeña obra maestra, Los cachorros).

  123. That’s outrageous Jane. A shocking story!I can’t believe that two countries such as Australia and Japan would do such a thing. All the women athlete’s should have united prior to travelling with the slogan, ‘the whole team travels in the same class, or the women don’t go’.I wonder what would have happened then? Would they have upgraded the women or downgraded the men?

  124. Well, all this talk of creative theft – we do know that Juan Cabral did steal 3 of his best ideas – basically directly – Sony Balls (done on letterman way before and in San Fran, Cadbury’s Gorilla, which there is a TV ad for and Sony Rabbits, which was done by a Japanese artist. So – is Juan a modern day Trott???? (Probably Juans actual ideas are the shit follow ups – Sony building colours; and Trucks)…

  127. E por falar em tapa buracos e jornalismo de chinelo, acabam de passar no mesmo programa as fotografias do (Boston Globe) retratando uma parte do que se passa no Irão. O apresentador diz que são as "imagens de telemóvel" que mostram e blá blá. E agora estão a comentar como os telemóveis e a internet fazem revoluções e blá blá. A informação é uma farsa.Como nota extra, as imagens que o Big Picture considera chocantes, passam na TV à papo seco. — JRF

  128. Dani,There are certainly passages that, from where we sit, can be very hard to see as anything but harsh and regressive. It context though the laws of Israel go a long ways in protecting women and valuing them.There are excellent chapters on this issue in Copan's "Is God a Moral Monster", as well as a lengthy treating in Webb's "Slaves, Women and Homosexuals".Also a commentary that gets into the cultural context like "The IVP Bible Background Commentary on the Old Testament" should point this out in specific texts.

  129. Eric, 應該是這個故事了,謝謝幫忙。我完全搞錯了作家的背景呢,而且還要是一位名作家。方潤,是童話沒錯。與朋友飯聚時,他對中文的兒童文學「只懂得教忠考禮義」有所感觸(我沒怎麼看過兒童故事書,不知他對否),所以以此故事為例,指故事內容雖然黑暗,但老師會叫學生分析作者想表達甚麼,培養他們的分析能力云云。
