Some people can just blow you away with their achievements and Andrew (Andy) Bloch is one such fellow. Andy could give anyone an inferiority complex by just reading about him. Firstly, Andy has not one, but two electrical engineering degrees from MIT. He has participated in advanced designing of computer chips, has a law degree from Harvard no less, and is a successful stock trader. And no one can top Andy when it comes to multi tasking. Poker is just one of his myriad interests, a BIG interest, mind you, but not enough of an interest to cause him to neglect his other pursuits. In fact, he participated in his very first World Series of Poker event while still in law school and undergoing vigorous study sessions. This guy is so amazing, that within just a year of his poker beginnings in 1992, he had already developed the skills and confidence to enter a $100 entry fee no limit Texas Hold 'em tournament. And let's not stop there. Andy is an accomplished Blackjack player as well, and was even featured in a documentary about card counting called "The Hot Shoe.' Andy lives in Las Vegas and has thus far finished in the money ten times in World Series of Poker tournaments. Andy was the winner in the Ultimate Poker Challenge's second season. The Ultimate Poker Challenge being a series of weekly poker tournaments which act as super satellites into the series semi finals. Never one for idle time, Andy has recently been recruited as one of a team of professionals that have joined Full Tilt Poker, an online poker cardroom that debuted in 2004. Andy now plays regularly on the site, joined by such top notch players as Erik Seidel, Phil Gordon and Mike Matusow among others. Andy hails from Orange, Connecticut, and developed an interest in card playing when just a youngster while playing with family and friends. That interest has developed into a lucrative profession, as Andy has thus far earned over a million dollars without once having to revert to his law degree.

Air Jordan 9 Slim Jenkins,Shares of Crocs, Inc. (NASDAQ:CROX) have posted a steady YTD performance of 11.65%. Since my last bullish call on the stock in early June, the price has appreciated almost 6%. I continue to be bullish on CROX as the company's strong fundamentals remain intact and the stock valuations are still very attractive. In this article, I will illustrate the rationales in a different perspective to support my view. Despite the solid YTD price action, the stock valuation recently bounced back from its 52 week low measured by forward P/E (see below). My comparable value analysis includes a set of fashion shoes retailers such as Deckers (NYSE:DECK) and Collective Brands (NYSE:PSS). At $16.49 per share, CROX trades at an average discount of 18% to the five peer average valuation multiples EV/Sales, EV/EBITDA, P/S, P/E, and EV/FCF. Accounting for the company's estimated growth potential, the stock is only trading at 0.7x (see below). Nonetheless, CROX has a relatively strong financial performance. Revenues, EBITDA, and EPS are estimated to rise by a solid 2 year CAGR of 13.5%, 18.5%, and 18.3% over the current and next fiscal years. These figures are substantially better than the peer averages of 7.0%, 16.5%, and 10.2%, respectively (see above). CROX also has a superior profitability. The company has the highest gross margin of 54.4% in the peer group. The company's EBITDA, EBIT, and net income margins are all significantly higher than the peer averages. The robust ROE and ROIC also suggest the company is able to produce an above average return on investments (see above). In terms of liquidity, CROX' LTM FCF margin is very solid and outperforms the peer average. The company only carries very little amount of debt, resulting in a large interest coverage margin. The above average current and quick ratios also reflect a very liquid corporate balance sheet (see above). Apparently, the CROX' discounted valuations suggest that the market has not given enough credits to CROX' financial excellence, and thus I believe the stock remains undervalued. I am also aware that CROX' EV/Sales and P/S multiples are currently above the peer averages. However, as CROX and its selected peers are relatively matured companies, I believe the market would put more weight on earnings multiples such as EV/EBITDA and P/E in valuing the shares. On a technical perspective, the stock appears to be building a solid ground in breaking through its 50 day simple moving average, and I expect a likely positive pricing momentum down the road. In addition, there has been a solid price support near the current stock price since September 2011 (see below). Bottom line, I continue to recommend acquiring the shares at the current price in the light of cheap valuations and strong financial fundamentals that are likely driving a long term price appreciation.
Real Air Jordan 9 Slim Jenkins,Air Jordan 5 Oreo The best thing about a treadmill (apart from the from drunk and/or uncoordinated people trying to use them) is the fact that you can run on them without having to go outside. This is great if you live in a place with terrible weather, if you need to look after kids or if you're a vampire who wants to stay in shape. Enter the SpeedFit Treadmobile, the revolutionary new fitness vehicle that takes everything you love about treadmills and removes it. To fully appreciate the craptasticosity that is the TreadMobile, check out this handy promotional video. Apparently, the creator of the Treadmobile looked at a treadmill and thought, "Well, that's pretty good, I guess. But what if we put some wheels on it and, in the process, ruined the only useful aspect of treadmills? It would be fucking awesome, that's what." Sadly, he seems to have neglected some basic design concepts. First off, this thing is goddamn enormous, making it almost impossible to turn. Second, if it gets hit by a car it is going to get fucking pulverized, as will you if you're unlucky enough to be operating it at the time. Third, if you want to have a friend along for the ride, he or she has to strap themselves into a thong in the back. Alright, maybe that part is kind of awesome. But by far the most baffling aspect is that this is a machine that moves forward when you run. If you just cut out that middle man and, you know, actually run, you'll save a cool $6,000. Yep, you read that correctly. Six grand. A pair of running shoes and a top of the line treadmill. And you'd still have $3000 left over. For some reason DeForest doesn't like the idea that bikes don't require an obscene amount of effort, and thus he made an unholy union between a bicycle and the type of wheelchair you probably see in your dreams right after a drug induced bike accident. And with that, the HyperBike was born. The big selling point of the Hyperbike as far as Curtis is concerned is that you have to use your entire body to move it, which translates into pedaling with your hands and feet, guaranteeing you expend every available ounce of energy and dignity while reaching your destination. Even if you have spent years lamenting the ease and maneuverability of the typical bicycle, there's still another huge problem: Where in the hell do you ride the damn thing? It's too wide to use on the sidewalk or in a bike lane. Hell, storing the thing in your garage probably means you have to get rid of a car. It's pretty obvious that the only real world use for a HyperBike is to slowly pedal around a deserted parking lot while a man with a white ponytail talks about how awesome it is. Despite all of this, DeForest has big plans for the HyperBike, confidently predicting that it will replace the car. We're sure that'll happen too, right after the poached egg replaces the human brain and the intense desire for public ridicule replaces common sense. Given the fact that NASA has decided to fund him, this may have already happened. Let's get this out of the way right now: Yes, that model is pretty hot. Feel free to discuss that further in the comments. But what you probably also noticed is how supremely ridiculous she looks riding a thing that looks like a cross between EVE from WALL E and a sunglasses case. She's obviously keeping herself extremely tense the whole time, since any small shift in weight will result in the UX 3 moving in that direction, making the fact that Honda wants to market this to old people all the more harrowing. We'll take a moment to let that idea sink in. OK, we're back. Yes, Honda decided to sell a vehicle that requires extremely precise balance to a group of people who are known primarily for a lack of agility and balance. No, we have no idea what they were thinking. But we can just imagine it now: Old Mrs. Jenkins rolling around the supermarket on her UX 3, garnering strange looks from all of the other customers, when suddenly her arthritis acts up and she clutches her side, which in turn sends her barreling directly into a mountainous cereal display that immediately comes crashing down around her, just like in the movies. Actually, we've changed our minds. This thing sounds awesome.

Bridgewater, 21, the "people's choice" QB, said he's comfortable and confident entering the season. "I'm (confident) because the coaching staff has coached me well to this point and prepared me for this moment," the even tempered former Louisville star said. "I just have to stay prepared. I'm comfortable, but at the same time I can't get too comfortable because there's always room for improvement. So I'm using this time to continue to get as much knowledge as I can." Bridgewater, whose exhibition season passer rating was 111.2 (Cassel's was 103.3), believes he learned to play faster and be more decisive in his exhibition outings. He said he's working hard in practices to improve his communication, footwork and mechanics. Bridgewater's only Minnesota endorsement deal to date is with Radisson Hotels. "I don't want to do much (endorsements) going into the season," he said. The Vikings finished 4 0 in exhibition games. Are they a playoff team in the regular season? "I don't go that far," ninth year linebacker Chad Greenway said. "I think you just take it one game at a time. Obviously, it's a tough schedule early on, and starting on the road (St. Louis) is tough. But I'm excited to go to St. Louis and get this first one under our belt, and to play in this defense for coach (Mike) Zimmer. I think the sky's the limit.""Just win, baby," Greenway said. The Twins, who are on their way to a fourth straight season of at least 90 losses, plan on becoming contenders again."Better players," club President Dave St. Peter said. "Ultimately we need to make better baseball decisions. Ultimately, we need to do a better job of leading our team. It's a combination it's the front office, it's the scouts, it's the minor leagues, it's the major league staff and ultimately it's the players." That's not to say the Twins haven't had positives this season. "Every successful period the Twins have ever had, whether it be the '60s or '87 or '91 or certainly the 2000s, has been largely fueled by players that we scouted, that we drafted, that we developed, that we brought to the big leagues. And from all indications, this next wave is the real deal." That's on paper. "Talk is cheap," St. Peter said. "We have to get it done on the field. But we're very encouraged by what (rookie Kennys) Vargas has done, what (Oswaldo) Arcia continues to show, what Santana has done, even (Jorge) Polanco earlier this year, (Kyle) Gibson. Hopefully, we'll see much more of that here in September, because September matters." This month could determine a lot about the team's future. The Twins say they haven't made any decisions about changes yet. "Clearly, September is a critical month of evaluation," St. Peter said. "At some point in the relatively near future, (owner) Jim Pohlad, (general manager) Terry Ryan and myself will sit down and assess where we're at and ultimately make decisions aimed at trying to make us better."
