I'm a snobby audiophile -yes, really.
Guys above who said don't go beats or bose are right -mostly right about bose. But don't tell bose that -they'll sue you!!
I'm the kind of guy that sits and listens to music for the sake of listenting to music on fairly high end equipment (I don't have the $$$ for the $$$ stuff....). A lot of times, I sit and listen to my stereo -music is the means to do that.
My advice. Yes, there are lots of better values: Sennheiser, Grado...
But, you're WORKING OUT!!! You're not attempting to sit and listen critically like an audiophile.
So, if I'm happy with my $15 Skullcandy ear buds when I'm working out, maybe you can save a lot of $ and be happy with a cheaper pair of buds as well. In reality, you'll likely be happy with almost anything while working out -including Bose and Beats.
They really have come a long way in the past 10 years!

I grill extensively and use almost exclusively charcoal for direct grilling and wood for smoking.
I have a large Brinkmann direct griller that is probably too large for what I need. I also have a Chargriller with a smoker side box. (A few years ago, I took the CharGriller to Ann Arbor and smoked a 15lb prime rib at the golf course.)
I also have several portables for nomral tailgaiting purposes.
Just getting my credentials out of the way.
If you are an occassional, once per week, griller, no need to spend $500. A small $100 grill from anywhere is fine.
I'd like a gas grill as it is very convenient to do a quick round of burgers, but charcoal is king if I want to do it right.
I'd like to downsize* and when I do, this is what I will get:
The Best of Both Worlds!!!
*(I'll likely keep the Chargriller for it's voluminous capabilities -the Brinkmann, while a better grill, is getting old and rusty...)
|13 weeks 6 days ago||It looks as if he certainly||
It looks as if he certainly had training at a previous job.
The problem, however, is what kind of policies Wyoming H.S. had for these kinds of situations. Though I am not an attorney, maybe his previous training could put his actions into context and give him some legal shelter -but it might have been beyond the policies (if any) of Wyoming H.S.
In either event, due to the likely fact of his previous training, it is certainly premature to assume he assaulted a student. While that might end up being true, it shouldn't be assumed. Like I said earlier, some of these types of physical actions look bad to untrained eyes.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Do you know for a fact that||
Do you know for a fact that Reuben has "never had the proper training" or that he "knew how to place the kid in a proper hold"?
Since your girlfriend knows how to properly restrain a young person, then you would know that legitimate restraints that have been learned through training can often look like assaults to those who are not likewise trained.
Maybe Reuben has been likewise trained. Perahps someone should verify that before passing judgment.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||"throw" can mean many||
"throw" can mean many things. Video would be helpful.
Sometimes, what might be a legal physical restraint can look to the untrained eye as "throwing" a person to the ground.
|13 weeks 6 days ago||Just a little thought.||
I wonder what his training in his current position or in any related previous positions might have been for these types of situations.
Perhaps someone should look into that.
Just a thought.

|47 weeks 1 day ago||Just read the description on||
Just read the description on the campus den website.
It is the copper foil/solder type of construction. And the "Michigan" and Block M are silk screened on -not stickers.
Shoulda read that first.
|47 weeks 1 day ago||I'll also add that the lamp||
I'll also add that the lamp in Post #8 is a mass produced light. I can't tell the type (lead came or copper foil/solder -though it kind of looks to be the copper foil type) or the quality of the glass (for $700 I would hope it's actually real glass).
I will also note that the "Michigan" and Block M looks like they are photo-shopped on for advertisement purposes (meaning the maize and blue are also likely photoshopped colors as this light is likely made for many other schools/teams). It's likely to be a pretty accurate representation, but those are stickers and not actually part of the glass (if it's REAL glass).
It has a metal frame on all 4 sides which is what supports all the glass.
We do the copper foil/soldering method. And it would be all glass with no metal frames -reinforced, of course, where necessary.
The more difficult (and time consuming) thing would be to make actual "Michigan" or Block M patterns with the glass itself -not putting on stickers. But, I will note that you simply can't cut glass holes in the shape of "Michigan" or the Block M inside another piece of glass. Perhaps these days they can do that with high tech laser cutters or some such new technology that wasn't (and isn't) available to us -but that takes away from the traditional appeal of stained glass, IMHO.
The pattern used would be designed by us and, of course, be approved by you. As would be the specific glass used.
|47 weeks 1 day ago||Though I am trained and made||
Though I am trained and made stained glass (REAL stained glass) projects for a summer many years back as well as other various personal projects (all BEFORE youtube), I can't say a lot -and it's been a while. That being said, it is kind of like riding a bike... (It also was something that offered a unique and personal date from time to time.) But, I do have a full stained glass workshop at my disposal as well as the (now retired) perfectionist master craftsman who trained me also at my disposal. And, yes, we have experience with pool table lights. (It was a family side-business.)
And this would be FAR better quality than what you get through Amazon. There is a difference.
|47 weeks 2 days ago||I'll make you one....||
A ~REAL~ (custom) stained glass pool table light. But it probably would be a bit more costly than what you'd find on line. And, it would take a bit longer to deliver.....

They're around 25 years old, but I'm not selling my Nakamichi SP-7's.
|1 year 11 weeks ago||Formerly, when you did not||
Formerly, when you did not know God, you were enslaved to those that by nature are not gods. But now that you have come to know God, or rather to be known by God, how can you turn back again to the weak and worthless elementary principles of the world, whose slaves you want to be once more? You observe days and months and seasons and years! I am afraid I may have labored over you in vain.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Progressive?||
I believe Detroit would be the most Progressive city in the state. It's been run by "progressives" for decades!
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Well said!||
...and Sennheiser deserves their (good) reputation -along with a slew of other high(er) end manufacturers.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Agreed!||
But I would +10 if he mentioned Stax!
|1 year 16 weeks ago||I have a pair of NAD Model||
I have a pair of NAD Model 20's I bought (locally) in 1985 that also still work great (many speakers last a very long time) -and they have actual tweeters! But your Bose 301's do have something my NAD's (and pretty much every other speaker) don't -light bulbs! I would bet, though, you'll be due for a re-foaming job sooner than later -but that's not an indication of quality.
(That being said....thank you for your service to our country! I hate to be critical of any service member, but I show Bose no mercy! :) )
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Funny||
There are so many headphones that are better than Bose that it ~IS~ funny!
|1 year 16 weeks ago||Ummmmm...||
....that's not saying much.
|1 year 16 weeks ago||As the old saying goes:||
"No highs, no lows -must be Bose!"
Sorry, I had to.
But to your credit, at least their headphones are a bit more highly regarded than they're speakers -but that might not be saying much.

|1 year 22 weeks ago||It's not "Nepotism"||
Nepotism: Nepotism is favoritism granted in politics or business to relatives. Cronyism: Cronysim is partiality to long-standing friends, especially by appointing them to positions of authority regardless of their qualifications.

....what was the name of Beckman's sidekick before Brandstatter??
|3 years 45 weeks ago||BINGO!!!||
Yes, you are family...though I'd have to ask my mom exactly how -but most likely as I said before.
And, my daughter took violin lessons from Ji at your parents' house.
That is what we call "Dutch Bingo"!
|3 years 45 weeks ago||There is a...||
...Bloem clan that is Catholic and of no relation. If you're in that Dutch/CRC group, you almost certainly are. Your dad is prob. my mom's cousin. Out of curiosity, do you know an exchange student that teaches violin?
|3 years 45 weeks ago||Hey BlockM...||
...my mother's maiden name is "Bloem"...ya think we're related?
|3 years 45 weeks ago||His Dad:||
I heard his dad had some issues, as well....as in he was threatening the coach (football, I believe) to pull Drake and send him to a Detroit area (private) school if something didn't go his way....don't recall exactly what the issue was.
|3 years 45 weeks ago||I still think Harris to MSU...BUT...||
...I do wonder if the offer to Tommy Doles meant anything....as in Drake would pick M if his buddy Doles also gets an offer....
The timing makes me wonder...
And, for the record: I, too, am Dutch -and a GRCHS grad- but I have no actual connections to give me any info on this decision.
