So why the identical, brand new Nike sneakers?The question may never be answered.But in the strange and often callous world of 1990s style American consumerism, the connection between the huge shoe company and the deaths is sure to generate publicity and that may be good or bad for the company.McLean Ramsey, a spokeswoman for Nike, said the company received a few calls Friday morning all from the media.Our only thoughts are that what happened there in California is a terrible tragedy. That's really the story about what's going on in California,'' Ramsey said. It's not about their shoes or clothes.''True. But bizarre publicity can still affect a company that finds itself inadvertantly in the news. Simpson case set the standard for bizarre real life product tie ins. From the initial, slow speed police chase known universally as the Bronco chase'' brand identification became an odd footnote in the case.And the bad publicity'' was often good for business. Sales of Broncos spiked after the chase, as did sales of Bruno Magli shoes the designer brand linked to bloody shoeprints at the death scene.It's certainly not the best way to get the name out there,'' a Bruno Magli spokesman said in the fall. But it is effective.''Chris Knopf, creative director for Mintz and Hoke, an Avon advertising agency, said there is a world of marketing difference between Nikes the world's most popular sneakers and Bruno Maglis.Nike has enormous name recognition and the additional free advertising'' will not have the impact felt by Bruno Magli, said Knopf, who has also worked in public relations. Likewise, even if thousands of buyers were drawn to Nikes because of its macabre connection to the suicides, that would hardly be a blip in a company that moves more than $4 billion in merchandise every year.Mary Ellen Brigham, a marketing professor at the University of Connecticut, said Nike would do well to ignore the publicity and let it pass.My first judgment is, I wouldn't comment on it if I were Nike,'' she said. There are people who probably didn't notice it. I don't think it's something I'd want to highlight.''Knopf agreed. I don't personally believe that any publicity is good publicity,' '' Knopf said. Some people do. I don't.''Nike's major competitor apparently does. Reebok recently paid big money to have its wares trashed on the big screen.Reebok spent $1.5 million for product placements in the Tom Cruise film Jerry Maguire,'' even though the shoemaker is repeatedly disparaged by football player and would be pitchman Rod Tidwell, played by Cuba Gooding Jr.In one scene, Tidwell uses an obscenity against Reebok, and adds, All they do is ignore me. Always have.''At the same time, some uninvited publicity clearly does hurt.Two enduring, and false, rumors one that spider eggs were discovered in a McDonald's hamburger and the other linking Procter Gamble to satanism hurt both companies. Procter Gamble still receives frequent calls from consumers asking about accusations that the company has netherworld ties.Hank Boerner, a crisis consultant with Ford Blewitt, a New York consulting firm, said he did not think Nike would suffer a similar fate. Instead, the company may be the butt of jokes on talk radio or talk show monologues. But that infamy, he said, is short lived.It'll pass,'' he said.Bernard Sklar, a marketing consultant from Simsbury, said the sooner the better.From my point of view, from a marketing point of view, it's a zero. You close your eyes and hope it goes away,'' Sklar said. As a retail marketer, I'd want none of it.''

Nike Roshe Run Women New Green White Quilted,How Drum Brakes Work Brakes are friction devices that grip the wheel, slowing it through resistance until it stops. There are four different types of brakes: drum brakes, disc brakes, air brakes and vacuum brakes. Louis Renault invented the drum brake in 1902, and it consists of a heavy, flat topped cylinder that fits between the wheel rim and wheel hub. Vehicles have four brakes one on each wheel and each consists of two brake shoes and a piston. When you apply the brakes, the piston pushes the brake shoes against the drum. The inside of the brake drum slows wheel rotation. Excessive wear of the brake lining causes fade or which is decreased stopping power. For years, asbestos has been a component in brake linings because of its heat resistance. Due to its hazardous brake dust, asbestos use was discontinued in 2003 and it was replaced by aramid. Tough driving conditions and heavy truck loads take a toll on brake drum linings. You should replace them every 60,000 to 70,000 miles or about three or four times a year. When the brake drum lining measures 16/32 inches, you should replace it. Brake drum damage can occur from the brake lining rivets that wear through worn lining when its measurement gets below 14/32 inches. Normal wear is 6,250 miles per 1 inch of brake lining per brake pad. Minimum wear is 5,000 miles per 1/32 inch.

Marsh's deal keeps him with the Lions through 2011. Details of Dennis's contract weren't available. "Dante is a leader on and off the field and Jerome continues to develop into an effective defensive back and special teams player," Lions GM/head coach Wally Buono said in a statement. "Stability and consistency are very important to the effectiveness of our defence and these signings provide both of those." Marsh is entering his sixth season with the Lions after joining the club as a free agent. Marsh has appeared in 80 regular season games, recording 240 tackles and 13 interceptions. He has been a West Division all star twice ('06,'08) and a CFL all star in 2008. Dennis is entering his third season with the Lions after joining the club as a free agent. Dennis has appeared in 26 regular season games, registering 24 defensive tackles and 13 more on special teams.

Nike Roshe Run Women New Green White Quilted If you need to lose weight, realistically you are likely to eventually have to add in some kind of exercise. Dieting alone simply will not do it alone. Exercise can help you burn extra calories to help you get extra pounds off your body. While some try to accomplish this without exercise it's hard. It may work if you are young but after approximately your 20s, or even in your 20s, you need exercise as well. Fortunately there is a multitude of exercises available both with cardio and weight training. In terms of exercising, there are numerous things you can do. That can be done cardiovascular routines like running, cycling, aerobics, skiing, playing sports, and others. You may also do weight lifting routines such as free and/or using resistance machines to build muscle and tone your body. Which one of these simple better to focus on? Cardiovascular exercise will burn calories, no doubt about that. It's not something that might work, it will work, this means you will work extremely well. The more of this that you simply do the more calories that you burn, it's that simple really. If you use up more calories that day than you take in, you will lose weight. While this does work for many individuals, there's something missing. Unfortunately but not surprisingly, cardio only burns weight when you're doing so; not on days off. The missing piece is weight training. Read on to learn why. Weight training is something you can focus on to maximize weight loss. The advantage that weight training has is that you'll build some muscle which helps you lose fat. While to some this may not be the overall goal since you are attempting to get smaller, you will have the results that you are searching for. This is because the muscle on your body will be burning calories all day every day. Doing the cardio for losing weight does work, but for many individuals with weight training there are lots of more positive long term results. The reality is that you could pick either one. Doing a modicum of both is even better. Don't fall into the eating trap though. It's hard to exercise and lose weight if you have a bad diet. You can't eat anything you want. If your eating doesn't get under control, it will likely be difficult to lose weight naturally.
