Hold it there for several seconds. You should feel a stretch in the large muscle at the front of your thigh. (Do not arch your back as you do this exercise.) Place your right foot back on the floor, and repeat the stretch with the left foot.. While there are plenty of accounts and illustrations that support this theory (some suspiciously from the Middle Ages, centuries after the statue had been destroyed), it’s unlikely that the colossus would have stood over the harbor. For one thing, Chares didn’t have the knowledge, materials or skills to support the weight of a statue in this position. EvenRead More →

2006: FedEx Caveman (FedEx). In this wonderfully pointless commercial, a luckless caveman tells his boss he’s failed to send a stick via pterodactyl courier. Despite the caveman’s protests that he couldn’t use FedEx, as his boss suggests, because the company doesn’t exist yet, he’s fired. The Cavaliers also have rightly placed plenty of value on the 2018 first round pick they would get from Brooklyn. That pick, more than Thomas and Crowder, is the most valuable piece in the deal, and it’s the reason Cleveland has to get this done. Having the ability to add a significant young talent either to grow alongside James ifRead More →

Best prank by far happened senior year, we had saved all of the scrap punchings from three hole punches around the school. We ended up with two, 55 gallon trash bags full. We had “ahem” acquired a duplicate master key to all of the classrooms/library and “accidentally” left a window unlocked in the most central classroom in our highschool. What can you Expect When you Get in Shape by Running?If you are new to the sport, don’t expect a “runner’s high” right away! This may develop after time, once your body is accustomed to the movement, and you can get into a nice, smooth rhythm.Read More →

It’s strange to think that something once as ubiquitous as the wristwatch is now an endangered species, rendered unnecessary by the clock display on mobile phones. According to the consumer research firm Experian Simmons, just 42 million Americans bought a watch for themselves in 2011, down from 55 million in 2004 [source: Goetz]. In the UK, a recent study showed that 14 percent of the public and 28 percent of those between ages 15 and 24 saw no need for a timepiece around their wrist anymore [source: McFarlane].. State laws vary widely, but policymakers in 18 states responded to the industry’s popularity by legalizing andRead More →

Yet it’s not necessarily the right information, nor in the right order. The trailer needed to get across three things. First: the desperation of Katniss, her best friend Gale and the people that inhabit their world. Fitness is arguably the most obvious application for wearables, but tech has a tendency to move away from single use devices and onto gadgets that can do everything. We’re already seeing that happening with early attempts at wearables, Samsung’s line of smartwatches and Google Glass. Sure, these gadgets are still being met with skepticism, but that’s mostly because they’re still a little clunky.. Britney ate pancakes for breakfast, ya’ll.Read More →

Three days later on the morning of 22nd. June 1918, Laddie Roy was flying his SE 5 biplane on patrol across the enemy lines when he was sighted by a flight of German Fokker DV11s above him. Instinctively in a dogfight, Roy turned into his attackers to turn the advantage in his favor; but his opponent this time was too accurate..

If you were travelling Upper Class with Virgin Atlantic from Heathrow this spring, you might have been checked in by staff wearing Google Glass. The airline says it was trialling Glass as an “innovative pilot scheme”. “Trial” may be an overstatement, as Glass is nowhere near ready to go mainstream: it is probably more accurate to say that this was a stunt to raise brand awareness something Virgin is very good at.. Then nothing matters, right? You actions and mine are the results of a string of environmental causations combines with our genetic predispositions.

“It’s a big commitment, laying here three days after the game and getting my Achilles worked on and my thumb [which he injured just days before the AFC championship game],” Brady said. “You go, ‘What are we doing this for?’ You know? ‘What are we doing this for, who are we doing this for, why are we doing this?’ You gotta have answers to those questions.
