Why, in the opening of the olympic games when the americans came into the
stadium did some of our black atheletes where their hats side ways. I don't
know about you but it was very embarrasing to me.
because they like them that way?By Andrew Pollack on 08/21/2008 at 10:49 PM EDT
All of our athletes can wear their hat any way they like. I don't think you
can be the greatest in the world at anything without some arrogance creeping
in.

Each event is counted as only one medal. In that case, China does have the
largest number in gold.
However if we count all the gold medals awarded in total, including all team
member medals awarded, what would the medal count be then?

I find it weird that we go by the "total amount of medals won" as being the
best....who effin cares about Bronze as much as Gold.....okay it's nice to get
any medal at all but seriously the U.S thinks they're all baddass with like 32
Medals with like 12 bronze and 12 silver ha ha. Ummmmm only 8 Gold?

Regards,

I live in Vancouver.... GO CANADA

In twenty five years, I don't think I've ever written an entry like this, but if you need the kind of work I do now would be a great time to get in touch. Both of the big projects I had lined up for late summer and early fall have been placed on hold and will be that way for a while.

IBM has made a deal under which the Notes & Domino software and intellectual property is now being developed and maintained by HCL America. HCL America is part of the very large "HCL Technologies" company that has grown from its roots in India to become an 8 Billion Dollar company with a global presence in the IT Industry. You could be excused for initially believing, as many people do when they hear this, that "they've outsourced the code to India where they'll milk it ......

If your company has ditched Notes and Domino, I feel sorry for you. For companies that do use Notes/Domino this is a game changer and Apple should be paying attention. Here's why: There are hundreds of little Notes client applications you'd never spend the time and money to build and deploy for your internal user base on IOS that we use Notes for all the time (those of us still using it). Now, those are suddenly ALL available on the iPad. ......
