How you go about filling 20 to 30 spots should not be a model for filling 1 to 5 spots. Basketball recruiting has met personal and direct approach. Seems to work fine for Beilein, I see no reason why any Wolverines fan would doubt him at this point.

This is a great advice. I spent a load on the photographer as I wanted the best. She was a photo journalist for Seattle Times and her photos were truly fantastic. The photos are whats usually left other than your memories. Hire the best you can afford.

Pay for your own wedding. That way you get to decide exactly how the wedding is going to go without your parents/relatives barging in. If that means it is going to be smaller and/or less fancy, so be it. Also delegate everything. There are too many things happening to keep track of it all. Get your most trustworthy friends and divide up all the work that needs to happen. My wedding was a blast because I was not constantly bombarded by questions or issues to be addressed.

This is not "part of the story". The book readers know that this is all new for the TV show. In the book, Sansa is still hidden away at Vale, safe and sound. This did not have to happen.
There was even more horrific act done on Ramsey's wedding night, but the show decided to change that for Sansa.

That is because they are travelling at speed of light from all respective reference.
The third party will observe that both objects are travelling at .6c.
The first object will observe the second object as travelling at less than c relatively and vice versa. Theory of Relativity governs all this.

No, that does not matter.
The bottom train has to spend more and more energy as you add more trains on top. Just because you keep adding trains to the top does not mean that there is no effect on the lower trains.
Even if you were to build trains of infinite strength, the amount of energy required to move with each additional train would be so much (it would approach infinity as you get closer to the speed of light) that the top train will never be able to go as fast as the speed of light.

At this point this is not a Frank Clark issue, it is a Seattle Seahawks issue. They took this event lightly and they are getting exposed for it. This is not going to end well.

It is amazing. You are in complete dark, then all of a see you see this HUGE shadow (the biggest one we saw was 18 feet across) that comes within 2 inches of your body as they gracefully do a barrel roll after barrel roll. You can literally see all the way down inside the body through their huge mouth since they are right in front of your face. It is life changing.

I will give you and everyone my #1 advice when travelling to Hawaii. Unfortunately, this only applies to Costco members.
The first thing you should do after you land and get your rental car is to go to the Costco (there is one near the airport on almost every island). You should stock up on your water, juices, breakfast items, fruits, and beer/liquor so that you don't have to pay exorbitant resort prices. If you planning on snorkeling, pickup snorkeling gear there too. You end up spending about the same amount of money as renting gear for the week. It also saves on checking those equipment on airplane which is not cheap these days. Even if you just leave it behind after the week, this will save you money.
You should also stop by Costco on the way out to gas up your car, buy Hawaiian nuts/chocolates, and coffee. By far the best prices on the island.
As to things to do in Big Island, here are my favorites:
-Night snorkeling for giant manta rays. I CANNOT recommend this highly enough. There are two different spots, either works. (go look for manta ray night dives on Youtube - it is JUST like those)
-If you like turtles, stay at Waikoloa Resort. There are resident turtles in its manmade lagoons that you can swim with all day. If you are not staying at the resort, you can go to Waikoloa Beach in front of Marriott. There is a fresh water stream that flows out to the ocean. Every morning, up to a dozen sea turthles hang out there to munch on fresh vegetation that floats out. You can swim with them or just watch them from the beach.
-Have poke at Da Poke Shack and loco moco at Big Island Grill
-Have a Longboard at Kona Brewing Co
-Chill out with the locals at Hapuna Beach
-Go up to Mauna Kea Observatory
-Snorkeling at Captain Cook point is good, not great, but really calm and clear water great for beginners
-Snorkeing is even better out at Waikoloa. You have to swim out about 200 feet into the open ocean, but some of the best snorkeling experiences I've ever had out there with huge school of surgeon fishes and huge parrot fishes, and even rays.
-Drive to the volcanoes was a bust for me as all I saw was some plumes of steam. But the drive to the park is amazing as you go through about 4 different micro climates - and the black sand beach along the way was incredible
-Go visit a coffee plantation
Hope that helps.

I go to Hawaii almost every other year. Maui is a good choice for a first timer as they really gear towards tourists. For Maui, I prefer Wailea area as you have better weather there than north (Kaanapali, Kapalua). There are some nice snorkeling areas off the public beaches and a lot of turtles hang out there. You can always go on tours to Molokini and a visit to the aquarium is a must.
I prefer the Big Island as it is more raw and climate/terrain is more diverse. The night snorkel to watch the giant rays feed is the single greatest nature experience I have ever had.

25% to 30% decrease is pretty drastic.
What is really awful is that he uses overall numbers for state aid, but uses per student numbers for costs. He is comparing apples to oranges.
Apples to apples comparison would have been bad enough, but he is using intellectually dishonest slight of hand here and that is embarassing.

His math is terrible. He just glosses over the fact that per student spending has drastically decreased over the years and just posts the fact that overall spending has increased (due to being there are more students!).
This is really a very very bad analysis. I am embarassed that a UM alum wrote it.

How is this even a question?
There is absolutely no relationship between Gary or Jaylen committing. Why put up such arbitrary question? It would be worth asking if they were going after the same position in same sport or we only had one scholarship left and we can only take one. That I can understand.
I want both. Everybody wants both. There is no question.

So far, I had been okay with the TV changes since most of them were done with expediency in mind.
HOWEVER, this change with Sansa marrying Ramsey is just too much. Hasn't this girl gone through enough already? Do we really need to pile on some more?
I really do not like this.

I guess I am the only one who knows about academic scandals at UNC, Syracuse, etc... and everyone knows Kentucky basketball players go to real classes.

They are STUDENT-athletes. If this benefits their academic quest, I don't know why there is even any debate.
I worked 20 hours or so during my years at Michigan and it was very difficult to juggle my time. I can't even imagine how you can do it with 40 hours.
Peppers ended up getting a redshirt year. I don't see people talking about how his career is ruined now.
|5 weeks 6 days ago||I am all for it. If you||
I am all for it. If you really are serious about the student-athlete thing, this is a must.
There are enough things for freshmen to adjust to. Not making them travel all over the country would be a good thing.
This would also force those who view college as nothing more than a stopover from coming.
This is a win-win.

It is not a meteor, it is a space ship. Based on the fact that it looks like it is largely intact, you can deduce that it received a critical damage, tried to land on the nearby planet, but did not have enough power to land safely.
And you can trust me, I have an aerospace degree.

I would be very comfortable if Shane starts for the Utah game.
The numbers were not great, but with assembled OL and WR's dropping passes everywhere, I thought Shane made pretty good decisions and his balls were on the money for the most part. I have no problems with him starting, Rudock or no Rudock.

NCAA cannot monitor the quality of education. That is what accreditation organizations are supposed to do. NCAA must hold UNC accountable for mis-representing the education it was providing, but it does not owe these former students anything.
If we want to be angry, we should be angry at the accreditation organization for not punishing UNC harshly for this fraud to discourage this kind of behavior from other universities.
This issue goes WAY beyond athletics.
