Canada clinched first overall in gold medal wins on the second to last day of competition 2 and became the first host nation since Norway in 1952 to lead the gold medal count. With 14, Canada broke the record for the most gold medals won at a single Winter Olympics, which was 13, set by the former Soviet Union in 1976 and Norway in 2002 . 3 The United ...

The doers - part 2
A month ago I asked blog readers to nominate some of the “doers” in the sport of wrestling - the people who may not always get the recognition, but who work tirelessly for the growth and betterment of the sport. Almost immediately I got an email from Jason Bryant, nominating Pat Tocci and Tammy Tedesco at the National Wrestling Coaches Association. “…(they) are the lifeblood of the organization.” After watching Tammy log dozens of miles as she covers the UNIDome during National Duals, I have to concur. Jeff McCall, the coach at the University of Texas-Arlington, brought up Jim Giunta, the head of ... market research, surveys and trends

Last year we tallied 112 companies that raised more than $936.8 million , not counting fundings with undisclosed amounts.

Biggest storylines from college football's bizarre offseason
Coaches hit the beaches, players returned home and there was very little news from the end of spring practice until the start of preseason camp. Not anymore.

Manzanar National Historic Site - Japanese Americans at Manzanar ...
“We had about one week to dispose of what we owned, except what we could pack and carry for our departure by bus…for Manzanar.”   William Hohri Japan’s attack on Pearl Harbor December 7, 1941, led the United States into World War II and radically changed the lives of 120,000 men, women, and children of Japanese ancestry living in the United States. The attack intensified racial prejudices and led to fear of potential sabotage and espionage by Japanese Americans among some in the government, military, news media, and public. In February, 1942, President Franklin D. Roosevelt signed Executive Order 9066 authorizing the ... technology research, surveys study and trend statistics

What do you think of my co-worker Gomez's comments and analysis of ...
For the most part, the managers here come and go as they please. They come in when they wake up, and leave when they want. My co-worker says that this is the only job where the children come in early, open up the school, and wait for the teachers (His analogy). He says management here has the attitude, say if Vince Lombardi called members of his team on Super Sunday (The Packers) and said "Sorry guys, I can't make it in today. CALL ME if you win!" Management had heard complaints that the body shop wasn't receiving their parts in a timely manner and had asked Gomez if he could remind Raymond (parts manager) of ...
Where is the first impressions for Call Duty Modern Warfare 2 lately?
First off, during the Activision Conference last Wednesday, Infinity Ward came out and played a never before seen level of Modern Warefare 2. They said no one could take any pictures or videos of the game because this level wasn’t released to the public yet. However, before Infinity Ward came out, they did have an awesome firework show which I taped and will post on the site at some point. With that being said here is my hands on preview… I got to play the co op special forces mode two times through. The level I played was a underground level. Looked almost like sewers. We spawned and there were about five different guns hanging ...
