1.)  It looks like Phil Jackson is going to back to the NBA in the front office of the New York Knicks.  He was drafted by the Knicks in ’67 second round & played with New York to ’78.  Mainly as a backup he ended his playing career with the New Jersey Nets in 1980. 

He then coached in the Continental Basketball Association until ’87 when he was hired as an associate coach by Doug Collins of the Bulls.He became head coach in ’89 & around that time he met Tex Winter who came up with the Triangle offense.  He then improved on it.  Now we can see if he can change the Knicks to a contender in 3-4 years, I think it will take at least that long just to get out of all of the bad deals and lack of cap space from previous GM’s.  Can just wait & see.
2.)  In Pro football the day before yesterday started free agent signing day and there were many players switching teams.  Also, some big names that were cut like, Ware in Dallas.  But one trade that I noticed was Jr. Marti…

Blue-blooded Amelia “Amy” Astor was a champion, America's sweetheart, and on track to give the US Olympic medal glory before she gave it all up to join skating's equivalent of the circus. Now she's a professional princess, the lead in Enchanted Ice. But in an industry that values young, cheap, and healthy, her age, salary, and injuries are a liability.

So when she's offered a job teaching Hollywood heartthrob Shane Marx to skate for a role in a hockey film, she leaps at the opportunity. Maybe with the right kind of exposure, she can survive one more season and put off decisions about her future a little longer. If she invites the wrong kind of exposure …well, there's that pesky morals clause waiting in the wings.

Shane Marx traded his boy band dance moves in TruAchord for acting lessons years ago. His blond, blue-eyed gorgeousness makes him the most sought after romantic comedy lead in the movie industry. But lately his cl…

Move over Jason Bourne. Here from Andy McDermott, theNew York Times bestselling author who “raises the bar to please adventure junkies who prefer to mainline their action” (Publishers Weekly, starred review), is the high-octane start to a new series starring American agent Adam Gray. Filled with intrigue, adventure, and non-stop action, The Shadow Protocol is perfect for fans of Robert Ludlum and James Rollins.

NO ONE CAN KNOW HIM. NO ONE SHOULD TRUST HIM.
AND AMERICA WON’T SURVIVE WITHOUT HIM.

Adam Gray is a cipher, a disciplined loner conditioned not to betray a single emotion. Part of an elite team spearheaded by a brilliant neuroscientist, Gray is a covert agent armed with PERSONA, a device that allows him to copy the brain patterns of the terrorists and operatives he meets in the field. For twenty-four hours he can recall their memories. He can know every detail of their plans. He can be America’s worst enemy—before he’s back…

Jenna James’s life has been smooth sailing since she left the high-powered law firm of Marbury Marfan. She’s happily ensconced as a professor at a prestigious law school, where she’s well liked by her students, coupled-up with a handsome colleague, and on track for tenure. But things take a shocking turn one morning when a student, Primo, comes to Jenna’s office seeking her advice about a treasure map he recently inherited. When Primo turns up dead and Jenna is suddenly the prime suspect in a murder investigation, everyone turns on her. Desperate for help, she calls on two old friends: Robert Tarza, her old law partner from Marbury Marfan, and Oscar Quesana, an odd-duck solo practitioner. The three race to save Jenna’s career—and perhaps her life—in this whip-smart thriller of treasure maps, murder, and law school politics.

Posted:  March 13, 2014

Easy Company of the 506th Parachute Infantry Regiment of the 101st Airborne Division has become one of the most famous small units in U.S. history, thanks to Stephen Ambrose s superb book Band of Brothers, followed by portrayals in film. However, to date little has been heard of Fox Company of that same regiment the men who fought alongside Easy Company through every step of the war in Europe, and who had their own stories to tell.Notably this book, over a decade in the making, came about for different reasons than the fame of the Band of Brothers. Bill Brown, a WWII vet himself, had decided to research the fate of a childhood friend who had served in Fox Company. Along the way he met Terry Poyser, who was on a similar mission to research the combat death of a Fox Company man from his hometown. Together, the two authors proceeded to locate and interview every surviving Fox Company vet they could find. The result …

Scandals, internal power struggles, whistleblowers, and the challenge of a quickly changing world. This book helps readers understand one of the most tormented periods of transition in the history of the Catholic Church. Benedict XVI’s epochal decision to resign as pope not only ended his pontificate, but has revealed a new identity crisis within the Catholic Church—the paragon of virtue—forcing it into the awkward position of having to explain and to confess its own “sins” and convince the public that it is reforming and will change its behavior. The church is perceived by adversaries as the “second Kremlin,” doomed to the same ruin that marked the fall of the Soviet empire. Massimo Franco analyzes the deep-seated causes and implications of the Catholic Church’s disintegration.

Curvy WomenHow many of us do this?There is this book I was reading and it had a character that was a BBW and she was aware of the dichotomy of her life and the way she set herself up for failure.Do you do this to yourself?On one hand she accepted her size on the other hand, she sometimes felt lonely and wondered if her weight was holding her back.  Since she took the weekend shifts as well as the night shifts because it didn't interfere with her social life.Now don’t be shocked but she would wake up with these amazing orgasms.The thing was her thrilling dreams and the reality never put her in a position to make her dreams come true.  Now she was left with a horniness that she would never be able to satisfy.  This is just one stand out example of some of the things we tell ourselves to put our lives on hold or not to have one at all.  We are worth so much more, at any size.She would rather have no man than be outed as a fat girl or a lonely girl in public.  There is a man for all o…
