Two years ago I joined this site to get another perspective on cycling that was missing. Initially I was totally shocked at the stuff I was reading about Lance Armstrong and others as I didn't know diddly about the extent of the doping going on in the late 90's and the 2000's. Today I'm just as shocked at the still ignorant people who continue to believe the spin doctors and still put that man up on a pedestal. There is so much out there to disprove the myth that is LA and the rest of his merry band of junkies yet most all of them are still in the sport. If I were to guess I'd say that most of Armstrong's most fervent supporters are only casual cycling fans at best. I also think his 'support' is a mile wide and and inch thick and will weaken as more revelations come to the fore. However, even if no further evidence surfaces, his legacy is tarnished beyond repair. and be taken seriously. I'd love for him to come clean and dedicate himself to fixing the cyclling. But somehow I don't think that'll happen, which is a shame. If I were to guess I'd say that most of Armstrong's most fervent supporters are only casual cycling fans at best.

Because for reasons he has not shared in detail publicly, cancer research is among the areas of interest for Nike co founder Phil Knight. Earlier this year, one of Nike's first employees and a friend of Knight, Geoff Hollister, died of cancer. Jim Riswold, the former Wieden+Kennedy creative director credited with some of Nike's most memorable ads, was diagnosed with cancer years ago. Knight and his wife Penny have pledged $100 million to the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute OHSU's largest donation ever. The Livestrong Foundation also has contributed to research projects of OHSU scientists.

And yet, you find yourself listening to it all through the wall of the theater next door while you watch Matthew McConaughey or possibly Richard Gere fall in love with a girl, scorn her, and ultimately rekindle their love while weepy women sniffle all around you. How the sweet holy hell did you wind up in a chick flick? At this point, the question is moot. Your girlfriend or gay friend who paid for the tickets and laid a guilt trip on you has dragged you into this. Now it's up to you to make the best of it. Every weekend, millions of couples sit through Hollywood's most recent chick flick offerings and nearly half of them enjoy themselves. That's millions of dollars spent just to rent a seat for two hours. "I wish I could get a slice of that money pie," you're thinking. Now you can, using CRACKED's patented How To Write the Ultimate Chick Flick Guide. Culling our knowledge of every chick flick we've sat through or at least the parts during which we didn't doze off we've scientifically devised this list of elements that, when combined, will create a chick flick so oozing with estrogen it could make Charlton Heston lactate. Use them to help outline your screenplay and wait for the cash to start rolling in. Your main character must have a Terrible Disease For Which There is no Cure. You can write it so she was already diagnosed, or maybe receives the diagnosis during the second act, preferably after falling deeply in love with the Perfect Man. The obvious choice here is cancer, which did gangbusters for Susan Sarandon in Stepmom, Debra Winger in Terms of Endearment, Charlize Theron in Sweet November. well, you get the point. Feel free to branch out. For example, Julia Roberts died of diabetic related kidney failure in Steel Magnolias and, in Beaches, Barbara Hershey had viral cardio myopathy, for God's sake. Try leukemia or multiple sclerosis or just Google "terminal diseases." Complications related to the protagonist's pregnancy are also acceptable, and you get bonus points if she dies within a minute of safely delivering the baby and holding it in her arms. A word of warning though: steer away from ebola, leprosy, or anything else that will require bringing Rick Baker on to do makeup effects. The object of your main character's desire shouldn't be perfect in every way. It is every woman's dream to meet a man, fall in love, and then change him. Perhaps he's too uptight, like Richard Gere in Pretty Woman; or a misogynist, like Richard Gere in Runaway Bride; or obsessed with his work and harboring a secret desire to break out of his rut, like Richard Gere in Shall We Dance? Of course, outside of the solitary flaw, for which the protagonist is the perfect counter, the romantic interest must be perfect, thus making your main character "complete" him. At some point late in the first act or early in the second, the main character and the people she cares most about (friends or children) must hear a soulful 1960's song either on the radio or a jukebox, and sing it together ideally into combs, and while dancing about in a way that is carefully choreographed to look completely random and spontaneous. Explore the discographies of Marvin Gaye and Sam Cooke. Nothing helps three dimensionalize a white, twenty something, upper middle class woman like having her a) know all the lyrics to and b) be driven to uncontrollable dance by Motown. The roots of this are probably Jungian. Jung proposed an Electra Complex as counterpart to Freud's Oedipal Complex, explaining hostility by daughters toward mothers. Whatever the reasoning, the ultimate chick flick must have an underlying theme of Matronly Disapproval of the Protagonist and/or Her Life Choices. Perhaps she moved away from home, forgetting her roots and never living up to her mother's hopes and aspirations, like Sandra Bullock in The Divine Secrets of the Ya Ya Sisterhood and Barbara Streisand in The Way We Were and Sandra Bullock in Hope Floats and Barbara Streisand in Yentl and you know what? That's pretty much the reason for a mother daughter conflict in every movie. Regardless, the underlying hostility culminates in at least one openly confrontational scene between the main character and her mother, ultimately resolving itself on the main character's deathbed when she and her mother realize they fight to no end because there is No End to Their Love. Prior to meeting the perfect (though, remember, Flawed in One Way) man, your protagonist must take part is some ridiculously idiotic scheme, a la Kate Hudson in How to Lose a Guy in Ten Days or Drew Barrymore in Never Been Kissed or Melanie Griffith in Working Girl. While entangled in this web of deceit, she learns that she truly loves the guy, but can't let him know without Revealing All Her Lies. A few suggestions might be making your protagonist be very rich but posing as a bag lady, or a childless woman joining the PTA. Now try your own! Note: A woman pretending to be a man is acceptable (see Just One of the Guys, Victor/Victoria), but a man pretending to be a woman will not have the intended effect (see The Crying Game). To know love is to know heartbreak. Your protagonist must have had her heart broken at some point by a man she thought was The Right Guy, but who wound up cheating on her or putting his career first or in some other way putting his desires before her needs, which is, of course, Just Wrong. The best revenge against such an affront is to destroy some of his typically masculine property, such as a sports car, old Playboy collection, big screen TV or Johnny Unitas autographed football. You may also opt to have her trash his wardrobe, which honestly wouldn't have as much impact on most guys as seeing those other things destroyed, but certainly hits closer to home with the women in the crowd, who are your target audience. Case in point, Angela Basset hit several of these points when she torched her cheating husband's car after filling it with all his possessions in Waiting to Exhale. Lisa "Left Eye" Lopes did the same to Andre Rison's shoes and bathroom, but that wasn't a movie.

The Armenian King Trdat III submitted his armies to Christ eleven years earlier, but if Christianity had stopped at Armenia the plans of Caiaphas and Diocletian (to force Christianity to morph into violent military force that could be processed as a regular insurgency) would have been victorious. When Tiridates III converted, Christianity gained a weak country. When Constantine I converted, Christianity gained the world. This exponential increase in the size of Christianity's 4GW militia was not entirely surprising. In spite of being under a persecution that would last until 313, the Christians were using the using the power of women to subvert masculine lines of control and communication. While the fading crypto Maoist ideals of Greece were passed along in masculine education, Christianity focused on the conversion of women and subsequent mother to child indoctrination. Constantine's mother was a Christian. Once Christianity began what 4GW theorists call "stage 3 operations," what traditional military men call "phase IV operations," or what others call "Reorientation/Reharmonization," the Christians followed a Boydian program for success. This "Constantinian Shift" was the natural and correct Christian response to winning the war. In the last slide of his epic brief, Patterns of Conflict, John Boyd wrote Evolve and exploit insight/initiative/adaptability/harmony together with a unifying vision, via a grand ideal or an overarching theme or a noble philosophy, as basis to: Shape or influence events so that we not only amplify our spirit and strength but also influence the uncommitted or potential adversaries so that they are drawn toward our philosophy and are empathetic toward our success. Penetrate adversary's moral mental physical being in order to isolate him from his allies, pull him apart, and collapse his will to resist. Constantine helped unfold Christianity's grand unifying ideal. The 325 Council of Nicea, assembled by Constantine, defined the unifying vision and noble philosopher of Christianity. The Creed of Christianity would unfold over the years, but in the 325 Declaration the nature of the Religion was promulgated Maker of all that is seen and unseen, And in one Lord, Jesus Christ, the Son of God, begotten from the father, only begotten, that is, from the substance of the father, God from God, Light from Light, true God from true God, begotten not made, one in Being with the Father, through whom all things came into being, things in heaven and things on earth, Who because of us men and because of our salvation came down and became incarnate,On the third day he rose again he ascended to heaven He will come again to judge the living and the dead, And in the Holy Spirit, But as for those who say, There was when He was not, and Before being born He was not, and that He came into existence out of nothing or who assert that the Son of God is of a different hypostasis or substance, or is subject to alteration or change those the Catholic and apostolic Church anathematizes. Constantine increased the physical connectivity of Christians. Therefore, your Worship should know that it has pleased us to remove all conditions whatsoever, which were in the rescripts formerly given to you officially, concerning the Christians and now any one of these who wishes to observe Christian religion may do so freely and openly, without molestation. We thought it fit to commend these things most fully to your care that you may know that we have given to those Christians free and unrestricted opportunity of religious worship. When you see that this has been granted to them by us, your Worship will know that we have also conceded to other religions the right of open and free observance of their worship for the sake of the peace of our times, that each one may have the free opportunity to worship as he pleases ; this regulation is made we that we may not seem to detract from any dignity or any religion. Moreover, in the case of the Christians especially we esteemed it best to order that if it happens anyone heretofore has bought from our treasury from anyone whatsoever, those places where they were previously accustomed to assemble, concerning which a certain decree had been made and a letter sent to you officially, the same shall be restored to the Christians without payment or any claim of recompense and without any kind of fraud or deception, Those, moreover, who have obtained the same by gift, are likewise to return them at once to the Christians. Besides, both those who have purchased and those who have secured them by gift, are to appeal to the vicar if they seek any recompense from our bounty, that they may be cared for through our clemency,. All this property ought to be delivered at once to the community of the Christians through your intercession, and without delay. And since these Christians are known to have possessed not only those places in which they were accustomed to assemble, but also other property, namely the churches, belonging to them as a corporation and not as individuals, all these things which we have included under the above law, you will order to be restored, without any hesitation or controversy at all, to these Christians, that is to say to the corporations and their conventicles: providing, of course, that the above arrangements be followed so that those who return the same without payment, as we have said, may hope for an indemnity from our bounty. In all these circumstances you ought to tender your most efficacious intervention to the community of the Christians, that our command may be carried into effect as quickly as possible, whereby, moreover, through our clemency, public order may be secured. Let this be done so that, as we have said above, Divine favor towards us, which, under the most important circumstances we have already experienced, may, for all time, preserve and prosper our successes together with the good of the state. Moreover, in order that the statement of this decree of our good will may come to the notice of all, this rescript, published by your decree, shall be announced everywhere and brought to the knowledge of all, so that the decree of this, our benevolence, cannot be concealed. Constantine decreased the physical connectivity of non Christians. Money was diverted from pagan temple to the Christian Church, in nearly exactly the same way later Chinese Communists would divert wealth from churches to the Communist Party. Non Christians could not own Christian slaves, a measure designed to prevent an anti Christian reaction by the chattel owning class. The "non Christian" tag was applied, with some calculation, to those considered semi Christians. Self professing Christians who refused to swear the Nicean Creed were exiled, a fate the Communist Leon Trotsky would suffer after running foul of the larger Communist Party of the Soviet Union. (Unlike Communists, however, the Christians did not send assassins after the exiles.) Jews, who worshiped the same God as the Christians but did not claim to worship Christ, were recognized as fellow travelers. Treated better than either Pagans or schismatic Christians, their position was superior to contemporary "fellow traveler" parties, such as the Revolutionary Committee of the Chinese KMT in China today. The Christians did those both to seperate Jews from their potential pagan allies, and create a broader, generally correlated force to "influence the uncommitted or potential adversaries so that they are drawn toward our philosophy and are empathetic toward Christian] success." Christianity won. The hope of a victorious 4th Generation War was successful. The old Roman Civilization was dead, and with it the ancient communitarianism of the pagans. Everyone was equal in the eyes of God. The slave. The woman. All equal. Even human rights laws, such as Improvement in the condition of slavesImprovement in the condition of prisonersImprovement in the condition of non farm workersAbolition of CrucifictionAbolition of Gladiatorial Execution Air Jordan 11 Low IE White Metallic Silver Black There's a certain good feeling attributed to wearing your old, favorite pair of shoes. They're comfortable enough, they fit your feet well already, and most of the time, you don't even notice you're wearing them. This especially goes for those light runners or sneakers. This is why athletes prefer to use shoes that have already been broken in: new shoes can cause blisters and can negatively affect performance. Eventually, you realize you need new shoes. While some types of shoes don't really need breaking in, most leather shoes would have to be worn at least a couple of weeks before they really become comfortable. You can actually hasten the breaking in process with some innovative tips. First things first: when you buy new shoes, make sure they fit your feet properly. Otherwise, no amount of breaking in would make them feel comfortable. Shoes should be just the right length, with a maximum of half an inch allowance in front of your toes. The part that covers your heel should also be just the right height reaching the point where your heel joint is. If it's too high, it will not be comfortable to walk around in. Softening the leather. Walking is the best way to soften the leather of your new pair of shoes. There are some points in the shoe that will soften, depending on your walking habits. But you can induce this softening process by dampening the upper by stuffing wet balls of newspaper inside for a couple of hours. You can then manually bend and stretch the shoe at those points where the balls of your feet would usually bend the shoe while walking, to soften those spots. Be sure to dry the shoes naturally. Air drying leather shoes is best. Stretching. Some cobblers or shoe salons may offer this service for a fee, and you can request them to stretch the shoe for you before picking it up from the store. If you'd rather do it at home, you can try softening the leather first (with the above mentioned process), and using a shoe stretcher. You can keep the damp balls of newspaper inside, to help stretch the leather. As an alternative, you can also wear thick socks (such as sports socks) and walking around your home in the shoes for a couple of hours at a time. Scoffing. Some leather shoes come with rubber padded soles or heels, for safety when walking on slippery surfaces. Leather soles will not be slippery when broken in, but when they're new, they're usually very smooth. One way you can scoff the soles is by using rough sandpaper. Be sure to sandpaper only the parts that actually touch the ground. You can also walk on concrete pavement, dragging your feet, such that the sole and heel are scoffed. After you've broken in your shoes, it's a good idea to keep them in stretchers while not being worn, to maintain their shape and the suppleness of leathers. You might also want to wear band aids on the balls of your feet and above the heel, just in case the shoes still need more breaking in afterwards.
