Was on my couch watching (the draft) and as soon as the last pick was in, I got a phone call from my agent saying I was going to San Jose, said Paddock, who attended San Jose summer development camp in July. Was obviously super disappointed (to not be drafted) but that for sure helped. It lifted me up a little bit and gave me something to look forward to. She writes about her own experiences of being sexually abused as a young girl by an elderly relative, the smell of rancid hair oil being her particular Proustian trigger. “I wrote about sexual abuse becauseRead More →

And if you’re in Toronto and looking for some free NXNE related entertainment, CBC’s Q is doing a special live audience show today in conjunction with the festival. They’re taping it at the Glenn Gould Studio this evening (doors open at 6 pm; seating starts at 7:30) and tickets are free. Guests include francophone folk chanteuse Coeur de Pirate, Wu Tang rapper the GZA and. Europe is the continent and the EU is the superfluous political/economic entity. As much as I would like it to be different, the so called ‘European’ social model is destined to fail. We have too much government in Europe andRead More →

Today, Harris Tweed continues to appeal to the fashion world at all levels. The current season, Hogarth said, is a particularly exciting one for Harris Tweed, with clients including Erdem, Prada and Manolo Blahnik. Blahnik shoes, made from bright, jewel toned tweeds, show the strength of Harris Tweed unique colours; the shade of a purple high heel bears more than a passing resemblance to the heather that blooms on the hills of Harris.. A few hours later, Stephens is sitting sideways on a hotel lobby couch and laughs when I relay the young girl words. Want to see you hit, I want to see yourRead More →

GORDON: That’s right. First of all, the remarkable things was that the invasion was one way. The lean bugs went into the obese community, transforming it, but not vice versa. Sports fandom in 2018 can be complicated, particularly when athletes and coaches have no qualms about espousing their political views. Fans such as Casanova are the inevitable result: She feels insulted and can no longer bring herself to root for her favorite team, which is making its 21st consecutive playoff appearance. When Popovich got political, Casanova got a garbage bag and filled it with 30 or so Spurs T shirts, banners and trinkets. You’ve seenRead More →

The band really makes the Watch for me. It a cut above the plain Sport Band on my first gen Apple Watch. But even if you not wowed by the looks of the compression moulded perforations, the ventilation they provide is reason enough to get the band. It’s a pretty exciting time for Aussie space enthusiasts. On Monday the government officially launched the Australian Space Agency. It’s the first time we’ve ever had a national organisation in charge of space research and exploration and many are hoping it’ll mean more opportunities for people like you to take giant leaps in the future.. This same coachRead More →

But instead of using a mouse or a physical keyboard, the iPhone uses virtual buttons and controls that appear on its screen. This isn’t really a new phenomenon touch screens have been part of everything from self checkout kiosks to smartphones for years. But the iPhone’s touch screen is a little different from many of the others currently on the market. Let’s just that came through with flying colors. Not only did they ship the items before Newegg had them in stock, but their prices were extremely competitive. We spent $269.99 for our i7/860 compared to $299.99 ($289.99 today) at Newegg. While creating brand recognitionRead More →

Let say Google decided to not catalogue Alex Jones in searches. Would that be wrong even though it would be “completely within their rights as corporations”? What if they asked Reddit, Twitter, Facebook and Tumblr not to allow posts covering it? What if Google owns them all 50 years from now? Are they still allowed to do that because they are a private company? What if their TOS includes any content that is hateful but they only block Republican speech? How about only speech that is critical of the government? It “hateful” of the government anyway. They don have to tell you what is censoredRead More →

The reasons for this trend are familiar: Globalization has flooded the world labor market with cheap workers from China, India and elsewhere. Has been left with low wage, low skill service jobs like that of a sales associate in the nation’s many retail outlets. Meanwhile, an era of global corporate competition has forced companies to ruthlessly seek to cut expenses wherever they can, keeping wages and benefits in these sorts of jobs depressingly low.. “His action is nicely balanced, there is nice momentum and he explodes through the crease which is good,” was Warne’s first judgement on his action. Then came an assessment of hisRead More →

We recommend putting names on the right side of a logo embroidered polo shirt or jacket. The right side is the more traditional side for good reason. It creates a separation from the logo, it is easy to read and it is the side of the shirt that becomes visible when shaking another person’s hand.. As you can see from this Triumph Roadster, the design remained essentially the same as pre war. Roller Levers were already an option (see the 1914 catalogue below). The main difference is mudguards: the pre war Triumph mudguards had a central ridge unique to Triumph, whereas the mudguards on thisRead More →

In closing, 2017 was becoming an extreme case of the highs and lows for me, running wise. I ran my best ever marathon on the Gold Coast, yet until Macao, 2 races SCKLM and GCAM were all that I’ve done. It would’ve been 3 but I DNFed Twincity Marathon due to stomach issues. We needed to finish the chase which we did not do. Initially they set it up nicely with Gautam and Virat. I thought we gave away 15 20 runs more, it is difficult to bowl to Dhoni and Raina, our fielding could have been better too. If Ubuntu does not let youRead More →
