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

Certainly it should have been addressed in the Trump, Obama, Bush, Clinton, Bush, and Reagan administrations -- all of which were well aware of the implications of a pandemic. I want a military prepared to help us, not just hurt other people. As an American I expect that with the ridiculous funding of our military might, we are prepared for damn near everything.

This is not quite a scam because it's technically legal, but it's run very much like a scam. This company works with a few "clients" that have vast repositories of copyrighted images. The trolls do a reverse web search on those images looking for hits. When they find one on a site that looks like someone they can scare, they work it like ......

Thanks to the fantastic work by John Curtis and his team, the node.js integration with Domino is going to be getting a rich security model. What we know is that a user's authorizations will be respected through the node.js application to the Domino server -- including reader names, ACLs, Roles, and so on. The way ......
