    The target was pre-shot and the timer was pre-set and the quick draw shot was using blanks.

    Clinton was just occupying the Whitehouse during the tech boom and the dot.com gold rush. The IT industry drove the market. Slick Willie was all he was – nothing more.

    She probably didn’t steal the research or the idea. She probably did her own research after her dad suggested the idea for her project from the project and paper he co-authored with Jud. The dad didn’t figure a sixth grade science fail experiment on this would ever leave the school or maybe he figured that her simplified project would not step on Jud’s far more pervasive approach. It got out of hand when Craig Layman, who didn’t do any cross referencing or discovery of what Jud had published online, published his article. If you look at her project display the title of her project and the presentation look more like daddy’s contribution. I don’t think the girl knew anything in this.

    Apples and Oranges. Quarterbacks constantly practice running and throwing in and out of the pocket. However, when quarterbacks intending to pass are being chased and are thinking of running across the scrimmage line, they sometimes change their mind at the last minute and try to toss a short lob to a player who is also on the move not too far away from them and the lob goes awry. It’s tough to make real short throws moving or standing in baseball and football because they aren’t practiced and it’s mostly a matter of subtle touch. How many times do you see a tennis player charge the net for a dink shot and biff it?

    This is not an exceptional talent nor is it a very high form of art. Thousands of people and every so-called artist or craftsman can scale up a photo and spend hours and hours painstakingly drawing or coloring every minute detail into a super-real result. Photorealism, Super Realism, Sharp Focus Realism, Hyper Realism,- whatever you call it it’s mundane. Chuck Close gave the style notoriety in the ’60′sI but his choice of subject matter was artistic. spent a week using a magnifying glass doing one of these years ago and it came out looking like a digital photograph. It was a ho-hum experience which produced a so-what result. Incidentally, ‘graphite’ means ‘pencil’ to those of you in Rio Linda.

    Stand still and toss a ball underhand about 10 feet. Then run forward while trying to toss the ball 10 feet with the same arm motion and force and see what happens. That’s why this happened to Shane. As pitchers, we were taught to never throw while running – to stay put where we caught the ball and make a normal throw. It doesn’t make sense to run and throw because you don’t have practiced and familiar control and you waste time running before you throw. You only run with the ball if you are in a close enough position to first base to be absolutely certain you can beat the runner to the bag or tag him out well before he gets there – a very rare circumstance.

    Oh…the Big Bang? – that’s easy. First there was nothing. Then, it exploded!
    HA HA HA – Atheists are indeed ‘free thinkers’ – free from logic, free from facts, free from being rational, free from intelligence, free from everything beyond themselves, etc.

    Also, if ya wanna know, feeling dead for 100 years feels the same as feeling dead for 20 minutes – no difference. The universe has no edge so there’s nothing but more universe beyond the known universe and there’s even a whole lot more universe beyond that!

    You know what would be really cool – but Nike doesn’t have the creative intelligence to do it – is to make a series of similar commercials but paying respect to moms, dads, soldiers, parents, blue collar workers, white collar workers, teens, children – everyone in the mainstream of American life – people that really make up America. I could go for that – the unsung hero’s of America. Sports and entertainment celebrities get enough, and in most cases, too much of that already.

    Moreover -all of these rights are unalienable. They cannot be taken away or given away by anyone. They are endowed (bestowed upon us) by our creator. They are Gods. Only God can take them back give or give them to another. He has title and possession. We only have God granted possession. Read the Old Testament and see where God has given and taken away rights from people and nations according to their worthiness.

    Government – as an instrument of protection of those rights established and owned by the people – is alienable by the people who hold the power to ‘altar’, ‘abolish’, and /or ‘replace it”.

    Therefore, the ‘rights’ of man are Gods – and are inalienable by man, but alienable by only God. Governments are institutions of man, and are alienable by man. Thus man is not co-equal with God, nor is government co-equal with mans God given rights. Righteous government is the handmaiden and protector of man and his rights.

    “The period creates the impression that the list of self-evident truths ends with the right to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” – Danielle Allen. Danielle Allen is completely wrong. The phrase “…..rights….AMONG THESE.. are…L,L & the POH” precludes any interpretation that a period, accidental or otherwise, or any other punctuation put in that spot for that matter, limits the unalienable rights to just the 3 enumerated.

    Life, Liberty, and the pursuit of Happiness are just 3 such rights listed and they are ‘AMONG’ more unalienable rights mentioned but which are not enumerated. The constitution isn’t in error, nor is the rendering of it. Only her reading and interpretation of it is in error. Her complete disregard for the words “among these’ is really quite dumb. Once again, college is not the place to learn truth and reality.

    People who feel the need to broadcast their pride are insecure. They imagine that others are shaming them for what or who they are. The more they try to assert that they are proud of what or who they are, the more shameful they act and the less respect they actually get because of their conduct. Respect has to be given. It cannot be forced.

    Paul taught: “Know ye not that your body is the temple of the Holy Ghost which is in you, which ye have of God, and ye are not your own? For ye are bought with a price: therefore glorify God in your body, and in your spirit, which are God’s” (1 Cor. 6:19–20).

    Defiling body created for us by God inside or out is defiling God’s temple designed to house our own spirit as well as God’s spirit (the Holy Ghost). Because of Christ’s atonement, we are commanded to glorify God in both body and spirit. We have no right to do the opposite – graffiti and spoil another’s creation that we have no title to. To altar great art such as we are ( after God’s own image) is a vain and insulting desecration of His creation. Christ is the creator, master and owner of all things. We have no right to defile or profane anything in this world – including our bodies. It is all Gods. Nothing is ours.

    The Relief Society, along with all the other ward auxiliary organizations, receives an annual ‘allocation’ from the general ward budget. I cannot think of a ‘sin’ that is exclusive to gender. ??

    You’d best research your facts and adjust your ‘understanding’ on that one.

    It’s making headlines because she wants it to. The communications between leaders and the membership is always private. Excommunication is very personal and very private. She doesn’t quite get it yet on several levels. When and if she finally gets it, she’ll be back, but you won’t hear about it from her when that happens. She won’t be wanting headlines then. A broken heart, a contrite spirit, and the resulting humility doesn’t seek publicity. I hope she comes back as soon as she can. She has great things to accomplish in the gospel. We all do.

    There isn’t any show, ad or personality on TV regarding diet, exercise and nutrition products or practices that isn’t a scam to one degree or another.

    Failure of filmmakers to approach biblical subjects with respect and reverence yields nothing of any use. Franco Zeffirelli’s “Jesus of Nazareth” is the model of how to approach religious subjects. Franco Zeffirelli was a great film artist. Akira Kurosawa was in the same league.
