[Bearbeiten] Lessons in Leadership From Women in Washington
May 10, 2013 By
Recently, I had the opportunity to spend a few days in wonderful Washington, DC with the members of my 2013 Leadership Women community, which is a non-profit organization that develops programs and projects to advance and improve the personal, economic and professional status of women in the United States.
It was a busy two days packed with rich content and learning. I met some of the most powerful women in Washington who are leading the charge on policy and change. These women shared many gold nuggets that were actually comforting and reassuring. What I mean by that last statement is their perspectives were easy to grasp and I could see clearly how to implement some of the leadership lessons into my life. Sometimes when we read about women in power, it can seem surreal or unattainable. Make no mistake, these women paid their dues to get where they are today and I certainly don t want to paint a picture that it was easy. The leadership lessons discussed were common themes and today, I m going to share five rich and relevant nuggets. 1. Connection Relationships One of the best investments you can make with your time is to connect with people who champion you and have a desire to see you succeed. It s important to build relationships with people who can support your growth along the way and help you accomplish your goals. The good news is women have connection and relationship building in their DNA! 2. Go Big or Go Home Think Big! Have a vision for what you want and make a plan for it to happen. Avoid getting caught up in the small stuff. If you think big and create an action plan that covers all the bases, the small stuff will take care of itself. Create a support system that becomes your safety net at the first sign of turbulence. If you are living a full throttle life,nike jerseys for women, there s going to be turbulence along the way. Course correct and keep moving forward. 3. Say Yes to the word No Adopt a policy of saying No more often. This can be tricky for women because we are nurturers by nature, however if you truly want to accomplish your goals and live your dreams, you will need to stop saying yes to everyone and say no more often to reserve your time and energy for your big ideas, dreams and goals. 4. Make Friends with Money In order for you to build a sustainable business and create a comfortable lifestyle for you and your family,4.12 discount nike nfl jerseys, it s essential that you become comfortable with numbers. This is something many women are challenged by and I will admit early on in my business, I was so focused on the marketing that I too, at times, took my focus away from the bottom line. Having said that, when I began monitoring my profit and expense sheet closely, my income began to soar. If this is an area where you need support, it s worth the investment to get educated and comfortable with the financial side of your business. 5. Become a Life-Long Learner Stay hungry for knowledge. The world is moving at warp-speed so it s essential that you stay connected to learning environments to remain relevant in business. Leadership isn t something that happens overnight. It is a decision that will require dedication and discipline. How will you know if your desire for leadership is becoming a reality? Look behind you. You are a leader if people are following you. Anything is possible. Everything is waiting for you.

1. Some guy spent $500,000 to hang out with Kristen Stewart for 15 minutes
The Twilight franchise has come and gone,Nike NFL Jerseys, but according to Harvey Weinstein, star Kristen Stewart can still command a killer paycheck. In a with The New York Times, the producer revealed that an unnamed Middle Eastern prince happily offered to donate $500,000 to a Hurricane Sandy relief fund just to spend 15 minutes hanging out with the actress at Madison Square Garden. No word on whether or not the deal included a smile. 
2. Pirates of the Caribbean 5 has been indefinitely delayed
Now that The Lone Ranger has taught Disney that you shouldn't just give Johnny Depp a weird hat and a blank check to make whatever movie he wants, the company is tightening its purse strings. And the upcoming fifth installment of the Pirates of the Caribbean franchise,4.12 Cheap Jerseys, which was originally scheduled to hit theaters in the summer of 2015, is the first victim. Producer Jerry Bruckheimer that the blockbuster would be ready for summer 2016, but added that "the script is not done." A barely coherent script didn't stop the last Pirates of the Caribbean movie from being made, so who knows? 
3. The Killing is dead again
Just a year after an unlikely eleventh-hour deal saved it from the unmarked grave to which so many other TV shows have been consigned, AMC has decided, once again, to kill off The Killing. "We have made the difficult decision not to move forward with a fourth season of The Killing," said the network in , going on to thank the show's creator and fans in the TV equivalent of an "it's not you, it's me" speech. Anyone who's now looking for a new mediocre, ceaselessly grim AMC crime drama is advised to check out Low Winter Sun. 
4. Universal's Dracula reboot is now called Dracula Untold
Universal's upcoming Dracula movie will be a dark and gritty reboot, because that's pretty much the only thing Hollywood makes anymore. But after realizing that calling their brand-new vampire movie Dracula could confuse audiences with the 30 or 40 other films that are also titled Dracula, Universal decided to Dracula Untold a perfectly bland title for a perfect bland movie idea. The film's new title presumably beat out a few other creative contenders, like Dracula Begins, The Amazing Dracula,    http://www.zhangjiajieba.com/home.php?mod=space&uid=350449"> [http://www.zhangjiajieba.com/home.php?mod=space&uid=350449 a> http://www.zhangjiajieba.com/home.php?mod=space&uid=350449">4.12 ]

[Bearbeiten] Global roaming charges in the spotlight as EU scraps fees
Commission president Jose Manuel Barroso told the European Parliament it was vital there be a real "single market" in telecommunications to ensure the EU was not left behind.
Advertisement "This proposal will lower prices for consumers, Europe will be more and more digital ... and give new opportunities to consumers," Mr Barroso said.
Reforming the telecommunications industry to break down national barriers was "key for competitiveness and employment [and] lays foundations for prosperity for years to come," he added.
Australian Communications Consumer Action Network (ACCAN) spokesman Asher Moses called the changes in Europe "commendable" and hoped it would put the trans-Tasman agreement back on the agenda.
"While it would be more difficult for Australia to strike up similar bilateral agreements with other countries than it is within the EU, ACCAN would like to see this approach explored further to help reduce the global roaming rip-off," he said".
"Breaking down national barriers in the telecommunications industry would expose the market to international competition, resulting in increased competitiveness and improved services for consumers."
and have both recently moved to curb their global roaming fees, offering $5- and $10-per-day travel packs respectively.
Under those changes,
Cheap NFL Jerseys, customers can add the additional travel pack to their plan to make calls, send texts and browse the web while overseas.
ACCAN said while these options were a step in the right direction,
Cheap Arizona Cardinals Jerseys Sale, there were still cheaper options available to consumers venturing overseas.
"Even under the new deals some Australian consumers would get better value buying a local SIM at their destination," said Mr Moses. "There needs to be greater transparency in pricing,Cheap Arizona Cardinals Jerseys On Sale, so that telcos are recouping justifiable margins, not the monopoly prices Australian consumers have long been slugged with."
ACCAN has encouraged Telstra to offer a similar option, which it currently does not.
"If Telstra is really listening to its customers it would bring its roaming charges back down to Earth," Mr Moses previously told Fairfax Media.
The headline proposal in Europe is to end roaming charges for incoming calls from July 2014.
Companies should offer "roam like at home" packages to cover the full EU or allow customers to subscribe to separate roaming service providers without changing their original SIM card, a Commission statement said.
EU Digital Agenda Commissioner Nellie Kroes has cut roaming charges and aims to end them completely, but operators say they are crucial for profits and so help fund the huge investments Brussels wants.
In order to create a single telecommunications market, the EU's executive arm envisaged a one-stop regulator to clear companies to operate in all 28 member states,Fall Fest coming this Friday – U N I V E R S E

International call premiums will be banned, with the price of an intra-EU, fixed-line call capped at the cost of a long-distance connection in the country where it originates.
For mobile intra-EU calls, the charge must not exceed 0.19 cents per minute, the Commission said.
Companies will be able to set tariffs so as to recoup "objectively justified" investment costs "but arbitrary profits from intra-EU calls would disappear".
The plans have proved controversial and last-minute wrangling over the details delayed the announcement.
An EU source said the delay was largely due to the complexity of the issues involved in an "ambitious package".
The package now goes to Parliament and EU leaders for final approval.

[Bearbeiten] Ambassador Hotel may align with Autograph Collection by Marr
WICHITA Wichita’s , which has struggled since opening in January,Authentic 49ers Jerseys Sale, may become part of the growing .
“I’m looking into soft brands,cheap basketball jerseys,” says Paul Coury, chairman of Tulsa-based .
The soft brand trend allows boutique hotels to retain their independence but align themselves with the power of a large chain.
Coury won’t confirm if he’s working on a deal for the Ambassador to become part of the Autograph Collection.
He does say, though, “If we were to do anything, it’s a good fit for what we do.”
Coury says a soft brand would allow the Ambassador to keep its name and individual style “but still maintain certain standards.”
“We’re not where we originally hoped to be by now,” he says.
“I don’t think we did as good of a job as we needed to to get the major demand generators exposed to our product.”
He’s referring to groups and businesses that can commit to annual contracts with hotels, often at the start of each new year.
“We’re getting ready to burn through 2013 pretty quick,” Coury says. “Once January rolls around, based on the feedback we’ve been receiving … we’ll reach the original projections.”
There are several hurdles, he says.
“Sometimes things don’t go the way you project,” Coury says. “I made some mistakes. I misread the market on some things.”
He says the Ambassador is having to change people’s patterns, too.
“People have got to get used to coming to downtown proper,” Coury says. “You know,Syria reflections- US remote_3 Syria reflections- US remote_3 Syria reflections- US remote_3 Syria reflections- US remote_3 Syria reflections- US remote_3 Syria reflections- US remote_3 Syria reflections- US remote_3 Syria reflections- US remote_3 Syria reflections- US remote_3 http://neverendingwuyifan.com/home.php?mod=space&uid=115183&do=blog&quickforward=1&id=238568">Syria reflections- US remote_3 [http://neverendingwuyifan.com/home.php?mod=space&uid=115183&do=blog&quickforward=1&id=238568 Syria reflections- US remote_3 a> http://neverendingwuyifan.com/home.php?mod=space&uid=115183&do=blog&quickforward=1&id=238568">4.12 Syria reflections- US remote_3]
Syria reflections- US remote_3 Syria reflections- US remote_3, ?different than downtown.”
He says a bright spot at the hotel has been , which has exceeded his expectations.
“The restaurant is really doing phenomenal.”
Finances are an issue in general, though.
“It’s no secret … it’s been tight over there,” Coury says. “We’ve got a very nice facility, and it costs money to operate it. You have to watch your dollars, but you can’t cut back on service.”
He says he has no regrets about opening in Wichita,New NFL Jerseys, though.
“It’ll be fine. It’s going to be a great property for us, and it fits well into the market we’re trying to develop.”
He also has Ambassador hotels in Tulsa, Oklahoma City and Kansas City along with a fifth in the works in an unnamed city. Coury says the one in Kansas City just received ?Four Diamond rating. He expects Wichita’s Ambassador to be rated soon as well.
“We hope to achieve the same Four Diamond rating there,” Coury says.
“I think by next year people will clearly see us for what we set out to be, and that’s the top boutique hotel in the city.”
[Bearbeiten] Zimmerman probe on hold until evidence surfaces
LAKE MARY, Fla. (AP) ― The investigation of a domestic dispute between George Zimmerman and his estranged wife is on hold because there is no clear evidence to charge anyone and neither side wants to press the case, a police spokesman said Wednesday. That could change if new evidence surfaces or technicians are able to extract video that recorded the dispute from 's smashed iPad, said Officer . Law enforcement analysts are having difficulty obtaining the video because the iPad is in bad shape, he said. "We have concluded the investigation with what we have to work with right now," Hudson said. The dispute took place Monday, just days after Shellie Zimmerman filed divorce papers. In the papers, Zimmerman, 26, said she had separated from her husband a month after he was acquitted in the 2012 fatal shooting death of unarmed black teen . A police report on the dispute released Wednesday shed some light on how it started. Shellie Zimmerman, accompanied by her father and a friend, was removing some belongings from the couple's house when George Zimmerman, who still lives there, arrived and began taking photos of her, the report said. The house is owned by Shellie Zimmerman's parents. George Zimmerman recorded the items she removed from the house and also the belongings she had placed in her father's truck, the report said. Zimmerman said his wife was "taking property that was not agreed upon and he began taking pictures and recording the items," the report said. Shellie Zimmerman then took her iPad and started recording her husband taking photos of her,Letters to the editor on Pompeo’s Syria stand, Gandhi, zoo’s elephants, suicide Letters to the editor on Pompeo’s Syria stand, Gandhi, zoo’s elephants, suicide Letters to the editor on Pompeo’s Syria stand, Gandhi, zoo’s elephants, suicide Letters to the editor on Pompeo’s Syria stand, Gandhi, zoo’s elephants, suicide Letters to the editor on Pompeo’s Syria stand, Gandhi, zoo’s elephants, suicide Letters to the editor on Pompeo’s Syria stand, Gandhi, zoo’s elephants, suicide Letters to the editor on Pompeo’s Syria stand, Gandhi, zoo’s elephants, suicide Letters to the editor on Pompeo’s Syria stand, Gandhi, zoo’s elephants, suicide Letters to the editor on Pompeo’s Syria stand, Gandhi, zoo’s elephants, suicide http://www.daxiangyz.com/Review.asp?NewsID=2892">Letters to the editor on Pompeo’s Syria stand, Gandhi, zoo’s elephants, suicide [http://www.daxiangyz.com/Review.asp?NewsID=2892 Letters to the editor on Pompeo’s Syria stand, Gandhi, zoo’s elephants, suicide a> http://www.daxiangyz.com/Review.asp?NewsID=2892">4.12 Letters to the editor on Pompeo’s Syria stand, Gandhi, zoo’s elephants, suicide]
Letters to the editor on Pompeo’s Syria stand, Gandhi, zoo’s elephants, suicide Letters to the editor on Pompeo’s Syria stand, Gandhi, zoo’s elephants, suicide, authorities said. George Zimmerman went in the house and locked the front door. What happened next is in dispute. Shellie Zimmerman told investigators she heard her father screaming from the garage. Her father, , told her that Zimmerman had hit him in the face, the report said. She said her husband then smashed her iPad. During a 911 call, she also told police that George Zimmerman was threatening her and her father with a gun. Later, however, she said she had not seen a gun. Police said they found no gun, but that Shellie Zimmerman's father "did have a swollen red mark on the bridge of his nose." At a news conference late Wednesday, Shellie Zimmerman was with her attorney, , but didn't answer any questions about what happened. Sims cited the on-going divorce proceedings and probation as the reason. Sims defended his client's initial assertions that her husband was armed. Sims said Shellie Zimmerman found packaging for a new holster in the trash that day and has always known him to carry a gun. "Bottom line, Shellie had every reason to believe there was a gun," Sims said. Sims said his client is hoping to move on as soon as possible. "The only thing Shellie wants out of the end of this relationship is for it to end with a whimper and not a bang," Sims said. In the report George Zimmerman told investigators that his wife had told him she was done picking up her belongings. He said he locked the front door and went to the garage to close it when Shellie Zimmerman's father confronted him, according to the report. Shellie Zimmerman's father threw down his glasses and charged his son-in-law, according to George Zimmerman's account. Shellie Zimmerman at some point hit her husband with her iPad,nfl jersey cheap, George Zimmerman told investigators. Police officers asked George Zimmerman to remove his shirt so they could see if there were marks on his back. "There were no signs of trauma, redness or marks of any kind in the area where he said he was struck," the report said. As many as seven people were at the house ― friends of the Zimmermans ― and they all have been questioned by investigators, Hudson said. The friends said they didn't see what happened and footage from the house's surveillance cameras was inconclusive,http://www.hotelchennaigate.com/Giants-Jerseys-Sale.html">Cheap Giants Jerseys On Sale, Hudson added. Both sides are refusing to press charges, but Florida law allows police officers to arrest someone for domestic violence without the consent of the victim. Investigators are hoping video from the iPad will allow them to determine if charges should be filed. Hudson told a news conference Wednesday that law enforcement analysts are having difficulty extracting the video because the iPad is in bad shape. He said because investigators don't currently have the necessary tools to extract the video, it could be several weeks or months before the video can be analyzed ― and even then they aren't making any promises. The iPad's chip also suffered some damage, Hudson said. Without an examination of the video, he said he doesn't expect there to be imminent charges against either person. Lake Mary is about seven miles southwest of Sanford, where George Zimmerman, 29, fatally shot Martin during a fight in a gated community in February 2012. Zimmerman, who identifies himself as Hispanic, was acquitted in July of all charges in the shooting. Zimmerman said he acted in self-defense when he shot the 17-year-old Martin. He wasn't charged until 44 days after the shooting, leading to protests nationwide from people who believed he should have been immediately arrested. The case sparked accusations that Zimmerman had racially profiled Martin and demonstrations broke out again after his acquittal. Federal authorities are now reviewing the case the see if Martin's civil rights were violated. On Tuesday, police released a dash cam video showing George Zimmerman being handcuffed after the domestic dispute with his wife. In the video, officers ordered Zimmerman to put his hands up and drop to his knees. One officer approaches with his gun drawn while another handcuffs Zimmerman. Mark O'Mara,4.12 49ers Jerseys For Cheap, who represented George Zimmerman in his murder trial, said on Monday that his client did nothing wrong and the dispute was typical for a couple going through a divorce. On Tuesday, O'Mara said he was not going to represent George Zimmerman in this matter. "I've come to know them as a family, and it's not a good idea to get in between them," O'Mara said. ___ Follow on Twitter: Follow Kyle Hightower on Twitter:

[Bearbeiten] In defense of Steve Ballmer --Tech News and Analysis
Bashing Steve Ballmer,
nba jersey cheap, the has been a parlor sport for years now. Critics blast Ballmer for not sustaining a bull market stock price for Microsoft,Cheap 49ers Jerseys Sale, for missing mobile, for thwarting creativity and driving talented people out of the company. But chiefly, if you read between the lines, one of the biggest knocks on Ballmer is that he isn t Bill Gates.
Frankly, the idea that Microsoft co-founder,Alameda a la Carte- Acapulco Restaurant reopens Alameda a la Carte- Acapulco Restaurant reopens Alameda a la Carte- Acapulco Restaurant reopens Alameda a la Carte- Acapulco Restaurant reopens Alameda a la Carte- Acapulco Restaurant reopens Alameda a la Carte- Acapulco Restaurant reopens Alameda a la Carte- Acapulco Restaurant reopens Alameda a la Carte- Acapulco Restaurant reopens Alameda a la Carte- Acapulco Restaurant reopens http://wiki2.agekuda.net/index.php/%E5%88%A9%E7%94%A8%E8%80%85:Wcyribwv1#Alameda_a_la_Carte-_Acapulco_Restaurant_reopens">Alameda a la Carte- Acapulco Restaurant reopens [http://wiki2.agekuda.net/index.php/%E5%88%A9%E7%94%A8%E8%80%85:Wcyribwv1#Alameda_a_la_Carte-_Acapulco_Restaurant_reopens Alameda a la Carte- Acapulco Restaurant reopens a> http://wiki2.agekuda.net/index.php/%E5%88%A9%E7%94%A8%E8%80%85:Wcyribwv1#Alameda_a_la_Carte-_Acapulco_Restaurant_reopens">4.12 Alameda a la Carte- Acapulco Restaurant reopens]
Alameda a la Carte- Acapulco Restaurant reopens Alameda a la Carte- Acapulco Restaurant reopens,great jerseys online, chairman and former CEO Bill Gates could have done better than Ballmer in the post-PC era, is a stretch. (And by the way, anyone who holds out hope that , has another think coming.)
A lot of the Gates worship is based on revisionist history.?Let s go to the video tape. Gates was still firmly ensconced as CEO of Microsoft when the company missed the internet. His 1995 book The Road Ahead barely mentioned the web. The visionary s vision was off that time. One of Gates most endearing moments came a trade show video years later when he claimed to have discovered the internet (full pause) years after everyone else did.
Ballmer critics slam him for being boisterous (who cares?), for discounting the iPhone (ok they re right on that) but when he left Ballmer with a raft of serious problems, said several former Microsoft executives who spoke on condition of anonymity. None of these alums are particularly enamored of Ballmer, but all feel he s gotten a bum rap.
Exhibit A: ?Antitrust issues Gates left Ballmer with a huge mess on his hands with the DOJ, said one former Microsoft VP, referring to the long-running U.S. Department of Justice against Microsoft. In the end, Microsoft was found to be a monopolist but the judgement was reversed when the sitting judge gave pre-judgement interviews to reporters that showed his bias. Still, the case was a huge PR black eye and drained resources.
It took Steve to settle with the DOJ and the EU. Bill never admitted how damaging his own testimony was, said one former VP.
Exhibit B: ?The Longhorn-Vista debacle. Much of the blame for the painfulwhich affected Microsoft years after the fact, is on Gates. It was he who kept demanding changes and more features as the project bloated, came in late, and to put it kindly was badly executed. Vista was announced in 2005 and launched worldwide in 2007 to near universal derision.
Bill s Vista obsession hurt Microsoft on the mobile side. It lost sight of this huge opportunity and was blindsided by the iPhone in 2007, said a second former Microsoft exec. Vista also damaged the company s ecosystem particularly the hardware OEMs who tried to sell PCs running it. And, not least of all, it caused Microsoft to turn inward to fix its bread-and-butter Windows business while the rest of the world moved on without it, said the former Microsoft VP.
Exhibit C: Deadwood employees One about Ballmer is that he s like a pine tree. nothing can grow under him everybody leaves. The exodus of talent like Steven Sinovsky, Bob Muglia, Bill Veghte, Kevin Johnson, seems to bear that out. The flip side is that inside Gates-led Microsoft there was a cadre of friends of Bill who were expensive executives ?and engineers allowed to stay on long after their useful shelf life ended. That deadwood was demotivating, to say the least.
Exhibit D: ?Microsoft s sales machine People slam Ballmer for being a sales guy, but hey, sales is the life blood of any company. Ballmer should get props for assembling and running the company s well-oiled sales machine and its massive partner network.
Steve is the one who built the field [sales force], the distribution channels, the $72 billion in annual revenue and he was with Bill from the beginning to build that franchise, said the another former executive. ?As he pointed out, ?Microsoft rarely had the very best product and yet it sold a whole bunch of stuff for massive profits.
The former VP summed it up: Steve has his flaws and created his own problems [but]?he inherited an unbelievable mess from Bill that people in general do not appreciate, and I��m not sure anyone could have done a better job than Steve under the circumstances.

[Bearbeiten] Silver, Stern, Unfazed By Hansen's Anti
Potential Seattle SuperSonics investor Chris Hansen s name came back to light a few weeks ago in a report that stated Hansen had made a monetary contribution to a Sacramento anti-arena group.
Hansen lost the battle to bring the Sonics back to Seattle when the NBA voted to keep the Kings in Sacramento, despite Hansen having a purchase agreement with the Maloof family for sale, transfer, and his intent for relocation of the franchise. The NBA voted with the intention that Silicon Valley billionaire Vivek Ranadivé would take controlling interest of the Kings to keep in California s capitol and the promise of a new arena.
In a report by the California Fair Political Practices Commission,4.12 Cheap Denver Broncos Jerseys On Sale, they did an investigation on the source of the funding for STOP s (Sacramento Taxpayers Opposed to Pork) signature drive to get the Sacramento arena up for a public vote on the next ballot, an essential initiative to kill the city s downtown arena deal. The investigation found that Hansen made an unreported contribution of $80,000 to STOP through a Southern California law firm shortly after he lost out on his bid to buy the Kings.
Many thought this move by Hansen to be a deathblow to his chances of landing an NBA franchise back in Seattle, but incoming Commissioner Adam Silver and current Commissioner,Cheap Arizona Cardinals Jerseys Sale,MOUTHFUL- Vine Art in Santa Rosa, explore Paris with a pair MOUTHFUL- Vine Art in Santa Rosa, explore Paris with a pair MOUTHFUL- Vine Art in Santa Rosa, explore Paris with a pair MOUTHFUL- Vine Art in Santa Rosa, explore Paris with a pair MOUTHFUL- Vine Art in Santa Rosa, explore Paris with a pair MOUTHFUL- Vine Art in Santa Rosa, explore Paris with a pair MOUTHFUL- Vine Art in Santa Rosa, explore Paris with a pair MOUTHFUL- Vine Art in Santa Rosa, explore Paris with a pair MOUTHFUL- Vine Art in Santa Rosa, explore Paris with a pair http://hebammenwiki.de/index.php?title=Benutzer:Facllsgb6#MOUTHFUL-_Vine_Art_in_Santa_Rosa.2C_explore_Paris_with_a_pair">MOUTHFUL- Vine Art in Santa Rosa, explore Paris with a pair [http://hebammenwiki.de/index.php?title=Benutzer:Facllsgb6#MOUTHFUL-_Vine_Art_in_Santa_Rosa.2C_explore_Paris_with_a_pair MOUTHFUL- Vine Art in Santa Rosa, explore Paris with a pair a> http://hebammenwiki.de/index.php?title=Benutzer:Facllsgb6#MOUTHFUL-_Vine_Art_in_Santa_Rosa.2C_explore_Paris_with_a_pair">4.12 MOUTHFUL- Vine Art in Santa Rosa, explore Paris with a pair]
MOUTHFUL- Vine Art in Santa Rosa, explore Paris with a pair MOUTHFUL- Vine Art in Santa Rosa, explore Paris with a pair, soon to retire, David Stern say otherwise in a new Seattle Times report.
I would say it won’t affect Seattle’s chances. I haven’t talked to Chris since those allegations came out. I think as he said, he got caught up in the moment.
I don’t think that matters vis-à-vis the NBA and Seattle’s potential at all.
Silver later chimed in again on the issue of Hansen and concern that the NBA will hold his actions against him,Cheap Denver Broncos Jerseys Sale, ending with,
We have a lot of competitive owners in the league. I’m sure all of that will be put behind us.
Since the report exposing Hansen, the Seattle investor now claims he regrets the decision and will take the steps needed to withdraw the signatures he funded for STOP s campaign.?His quest for an NBA team will continue and so will the city of Sacramento and the Kings organization on their finalizing of plans to build the new arena estimated to be open in the fall of 2016.

By Mark MihalkoWith Wednesday being the anniversary of the terror attacks of September 11, 2001, Steelers 101 would like to send or thoughts and payers to everyone that suffered on one of the darkest days in American History. Being in Southwest Pennsylvania, we cannot forget that some of Steeler Nation was directly involved as first responders to the crash of Flight 93 in Shanksville, Pennsylvania and their lives have never been the same. With a report surfacing Wednesday that running back Le Veon Bell is still weeks away from returning, the will have to move forward with what they have for a running game. After reviewing the tape,Off the Beaten Plate- Chocolate Off the Beaten Plate- Chocolate Off the Beaten Plate- Chocolate Off the Beaten Plate- Chocolate Off the Beaten Plate- Chocolate Off the Beaten Plate- Chocolate Off the Beaten Plate- Chocolate Off the Beaten Plate- Chocolate Off the Beaten Plate- Chocolate http://www.hi0471.com/bbs/viewthread.php?tid=1770681&extra=">Off the Beaten Plate- Chocolate [http://www.hi0471.com/bbs/viewthread.php?tid=1770681&extra= Off the Beaten Plate- Chocolate a> http://www.hi0471.com/bbs/viewthread.php?tid=1770681&extra=">4.12 Off the Beaten Plate- Chocolate]
Off the Beaten Plate- Chocolate Off the Beaten Plate- Chocolate, one thing is certain, no matter who is carrying the ball, they need more from that position and they realize that. One thing that jumped out from the game was the total disregard for play action due to the lack of push in the run game. Of course, quarterback Ben Roethlisberger did not help matters much,Authentic 49ers Jerseys Sale, with a very uneven performance that was reminiscent of the end of the 2012 season. It definitely was not the Roethlisberger that opened the 2012 campaign on pace for a career season. Yes, some will point to losing center Maukice Pouncey early in the contest for his sub par performance, but that would be a cop out. Sure, the loss of the anchor of the offensive line is devastating and taking a snap for the first time from a reserve would be a little unnerving, yet, as the veteran leader of the offense, he should have handled the adversity better. Do not agree; just watch the tape. A perfect example would be on the Steelers first offensive drive on the play Roethlisberger and running back Isaac Redman botched the handoff and took points off the board. In an interview on Tuesday, Roethlisberger stated that he realized they had the wrong personnel in the game for the called play, yet went forward with it anyway because he did not want to waste a time out so early in the contest. On one hand, that is understandable. However, for an offense that struggled throughout preseason to score, with a new center that has not practiced the position with the first team, the time out must be called in that situation. Now that one drive did not end the Steelers game, but it was definitely a momentum killer that they never truly recovered from. In fact, it is quite possible that if they punch the ball in on that first drive, and go up 9-0, it is a very different ball game. Sure, this is in retrospect, but it is not unfair criticism. That is one example of many from this game in which he threw for only 191 yards (one touchdown) and was erratic throughout. In his defense, he was under pressure, but he also missed some wide-open receivers and appeared to have zero continuity with the receiving corps throughout, with his interception being a prime example of that. It would be understandable if the group of receivers had been battered and bruised like the running backs have, but all five of the receivers to make the final 53 have been in camp without missing a beat and the top three have been together for two seasons now. People will run to his defense and state that he was missing Heath Miller, his security blanket and they would be right. However, he has been out since the end of 2012 and missed the entire preseason, so that cannot be an excuse. Roethlisberger is the highest paid member of the franchise, and was once considered in the elite quarterbacks in the league,Cheap Giants Jerseys Sale, plain and simple; he must play better for the Steelers to win. Of course, Roethlisberger does have history on his side, as he has played extremely well throughout his career in his home state of Ohio. Will he have enough weapons to continue that trend in 2013? He better or it will be an extremely long 2013 season for Steelers fans. Also, Be sure to like and to follow Be sure to like and to follow Your man cave is your home field advantage for every game.

Steelers Fact of the Day The Pittsburgh Steelers have actually gone through three name changes during their history. The team actually began as the Pittsburgh Pirates, before owner Art Rooney changed their name to the Steelers in 1940. In 1943, they became the Steagles when they were merged with the Philadelphia Eagles as football rosters became depleted during World War II. The next year (1944) saw them similiarly merged with the Cardinals,

[Bearbeiten] Bobby Valentine Reflects On New York Mets’ Role Follow
NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) Former New York Mets manager Bobby Valentine joined WFAN radio on to talk about baseball s role in the aftermath of the terror attacks on the World Trade Center and the Pentagon.
Valentine didn t hold back, and admitted there were some raw feelings about how the Mets were perceived compared to the crosstown Yankees in the days and weeks that followed.
Let it be said that during the time from 9/11 to 9/21, the Yankees were (not around), Valentine told Joe Benigno and Evan Roberts on Wednesday. You couldn t find a Yankee on the streets of New York City. You couldn t find a Yankee down at Ground Zero, talking to the guys who were working 24/7.

[Bearbeiten] Cleary doesn’t report to Flyers’ camp, will sign
Oh come on.
Three players (am I missing any) now have signed deals with the Flyers organization including No Trade Clauses,    http://www.zchtech.net/zchtech/home.php?mod=space&uid=195195"> [http://www.zchtech.net/zchtech/home.php?mod=space&uid=195195 a> http://www.zchtech.net/zchtech/home.php?mod=space&uid=195195">4.12 ]
,4.12 cheap nfl jerseys, and a reasonable person can only assume that they did so assuming the Flyers organization would honour the spirit of those clauses and not invalidate them for the remainder of their contracts before they even kicked in.
Personally I don t begrudge the Flyers that teams have to do everything they can within the limitations of the CBA to try to ice a winning roster.
However,4.12 nfl jerseys online for sale, players also have to do the same thing so if Danny Cleary was making overtures about signing a deal with the Flyers and then did not for his own gain,Cheap Giants Jerseys On Sale, that is a player looking out for his best interest within the limitations of the CBA. (Even then Cleary s public comments seemed to think he thought he had a deal on the table with the Flyers and would not be attending camp as an unsigned/uninsured player.)
Pretty hypocritical to excuse one side for gaming the system and then whine about the other doing more or less the same thing.
[Bearbeiten] Liars take longer to text back- study
Liars take longer to text back: study People who lie via text are often slow to respond to messages, according to a study out of Brigham Young University. They also send shorter texts. AFP RELAXNEWS Published: Wednesday, September 11, 2013,4.12 Cheap Giants Jerseys On Sale, 12:27 PM Updated: Wednesday, September 11, 2013, 12:27 PM Brigham Young University
BYU researchers found people who lie in digital messages take longer to respond. The findings could lead to digital lie detectors built into social media and text message services.
Researchers have discovered that the longer it takes someone to respond to a message,[http://innovativeweldsolutions.com/jerseys.html cheap nfl jerseys a>, the greater the chance that the sender is not being truthful.
The study, conducted by Brigham Young University in Utah, found that when participants texted a lie, it took on average 10 percent longer to compose the message. A group of over 100 students from two US universities were asked to have text-based conversations with a specially written computer program. The program asked each participant 30 questions and the subjects were instructed to lie in roughly 50 percent of their responses. As well as taking longer to compose, the researchers found that those messages that were less than accurate were also more edited and shorter than their truthful counterparts.
Digital conversations are a fertile ground for deception because people can easily conceal their identity and their messages often appear credible, said Tom Meservy,http://infocorp.in/mw/index.php?title=User:Ezgpjmlg4#Ronald_D._Moore.27s_Outlander_Series_Finally_Casts_Lead_Charac">Ronald D.

It is hoped that the findings, published this week in the academic information systems journal ACM Transactions on Management Information Systems, will provide a good starting point for developing systems to identify when people are being less than truthful. According to Meservy the average person is only able to detect when someone is lying 54 percent of the time and that's when they can look that person in the eye or hear their tone of voice, but these new findings could help to develop automated systems that could,nfl jersey authentic, as Meservy describes it, track deception in real-time.
However, before you reach for your smartphone and a stopwatch, remember that sometimes people really are just too busy to respond to a message immediately. As fellow BYU professor and co-author Jeffrey Jenkins says: We are just at the beginning of this. We need to collect a lot more data.
[Bearbeiten] Apple Fingerprint Sensor Boosts Biometrics
Apple If you don't understand how cool this is, you just don't get it. SINGAPORE / SAN FRANCISCO (Reuters) - By adding a fingerprint scanner to its newest mobile phone, Apple Inc is offering a tantalizing glimpse of a future where your favorite gadget might become a biometric pass to the workplace, mobile commerce or real-world shopping and events.
Although Apple's executives said at Tuesday's launch that its Touch ID technology embedded into the iPhone 5S' home button would only provide fingerprint access to the phone and its own online stores, analysts said Apple's embrace of such technology, called biometrics, would be key to wider adoption.
"It really propels biometrics into the mainstream," said specialist Alan Goode, the UK-based managing director of research consultancy Goode Intelligence.
Jonathan Ive, Apple's senior vice president of design, hinted of its future in a video presentation at the launch.
"Touch ID defines the next step of how you use your iPhone," he said, "making something as important as security so effortless and so simple."
Passwords and personal identification numbers (PINs) have long been the mainstay of access to devices, bank accounts and online services, despite their poor record. Many passwords can easily be guessed, while others can be hacked by brute-force attacks - essentially a computer program running through all possible permutations.
They also involve one too many steps for lots of users: Apple said that half of smartphone users don't bother to password-protect their devices.
Hence the appeal of biometrics, which take something unique to the individual - a fingerprint, an iris, voice or facial features - as authentication.
COMFORT FOR COMMERCE
Apple's move may not have an immediate impact beyond improving the way users unlock their devices and interact with Apple services like iTunes and its App Store.
But that is itself a significant step. Apple has more than 500 million iTunes accounts. Anything that increases security and removes steps in the payment process is bound to boost online purchases.
It will also raise the comfort levels of companies supplying the content to a mobile commerce sector expected to reach $40 billion next year in the United States alone, according to Euromonitor estimates.
Users afraid of using their mobile device to make purchases online or in the real world because they fear it will be stolen or their password seen may feel liberated using a fingerprint,Cheap NFL Jerseys, said Michael Chasen, CEO of SocialRadar, which is building location-based mobile applications for social networking.
For mobile commerce, he said, that could "be the missing piece".
Beyond the web, Apple could combine the Touch ID with its existing "Passbook" app that stores coupons, tickets to events and boarding passes on an iPhone and allow event organizers and airline companies to validate those documents, said Sebastien Taveau, chief technology officer at California-based Validity Sensors, which makes sensors for other manufacturers.
"Apple wants to make deals with music and entertainment companies with very strong opinions on digital rights management," Taveau said. The fingerprint scanner, when used in transactions with these companies, could "reassure all these industries".
Biometric security should also appeal to enterprises nervous about allowing the personal devices of employees on the office network, analysts and industry insiders said.
"If this has been implemented right, every enterprise that enforces a password or PIN lock on the device will begin using the fingerprint sensor instead," said Song Chuang, Singapore-based research director at Gartner.
Apple is not the first to try to make biometrics work for the consumer.
Fingerprint scanners have already found their way into laptops, external hard-drives and electronic wallets. Companies like Motorola Mobility Holdings Inc, Fujitsu Ltd and Pantech Co Ltd have incorporated fingerprint scanners into their mobile phones.
But none has really taken off.
Partly, that's because of cost and partly because there's been little in the way of an ecosystem to build support for the products.
"Biometrics have been historically viewed as a more expensive 'nice to have' component, rather than a 'must have'," said Bill Morelli, an analyst at IHS.
Also, fingerprint scanners have tended to make things harder rather than easier for users.
Chuang at Gartner said it could take users up to six swipes for a sensor to 'learn' a user's fingerprint. "This is not a great user experience," he said.
All things, say some, that Apple was put on this earth to fix. Ben Thompson, a Taipei-based industry observer who writes a blog at stratechery.com, said Apple was focusing on the apparently trivial problem of entering a password - but one that irked users dozens of times a day.
"It's classic Apple to expend tremendous energy on simplifying a small irritation, even if it's not a classic feature list item."
BADLY KEPT SECRET BOOSTS INDUSTRY
The badly kept secret of Apple's biometric plans had already given the industry a boost long before Tuesday. The company has been filing patents on biometric security since at least 2009.
"Apple has been working on it for more than two years and they have extremely competent engineers," said Validity's Taveau.
Apple reached out two to three years ago to Microlatch,49ers Jerseys For Cheap, an Australian company, to license and test its peripheral fingerprint sensors. Apple asked it to build a Bluetooth connection to the phone and accompanying software, Microlatch managing director and founder Chris Burke said, so Apple could gauge user reactions and habits, particularly in e-commerce strongholds like China.
"In their roadmap it was clear there would be fingerprint scans,cheap nfl jerseys, so they'd plot their course, rather than just trying something," Burke said in a phone interview.
Last year Apple also paid about $350 million for AuthenTec, a key player in fingerprint sensors and until its purchase a supplier to Samsung Electronics Co Ltd, Hewlett-Packard Co, Dell Inc, Lenovo Group Ltd and Fujitsu.
Apple's moves have reawakened interest in the space.

Franklin woman, charged with DWI, was not aware of Franklin woman, charged with DWI, was not aware of, has seen its share price rise 1,400 percent in the past year. The company predicts the industry will ship up to 100 million consumer electronic devices embedded with fingerprint scanners this year, rising to more than 1 billion in 2015 as biometrics finds its way into TV remotes, gaming consoles and cameras.
DOWNSIDE OF NICE, NOT NECESSARY
There are downsides to fingerprint technology. It is not as accurate as companies touting its benefits make it sound, and PINs and passwords can be reset or changed if someone steals them.
"Fingerprint recognition is not perfect," said Geppy Parziale, biometrics expert and CEO of Invasivecode, a firm that develops applications for Apple's mobile devices. Then there's the problem of the fingerprints themselves: acquiring a large enough set of them to test the accuracy of such devices is complicated by privacy and legal issues, Parziale said.
But if anyone can bring this technology into the mainstream, experts say, it's Apple. It has, for example, embedded the scanner into the iPhone's home button, while other mobile devices usually have it on the back, making it awkward for the user and increasing the number of failed attempts.
Samsung and fellow South Korean electronics manufacturer LG Electronics Inc have had problems incorporating the technology into finished products.
LG's head of domestic marketing, Ma Chang-Min, last month said the company had abandoned efforts to include a fingerprint sensor to the back cover of its flagship G2 smartphone "as we need more work to improve reliability and usability".
That gives Apple a headstart. It can also build the sensing and security deep into its operating system and the A7 mobile chip which Apple itself designed, putting it ahead of rivals such like Google, which develops the Android mobile OS and licenses it to manufacturers like Samsung, said Taipei-based KGI Securities analyst Ming-Chi Kuo.
But its edge may not last.
Microsoft Corp, for one, is building fingerprint recognition into the latest update of its Windows operating system and, said Taveau of Validity Sensors, "it is fair to assume that the Android community won't be long to react".
