benchwarmers for Week 13

Wondering whether or not to start Marshawn Lynch and Brandon Marshall, or to bench Jacquizz Rodgers and Darrius Heyward Bey? The network bozos specialize in that kind of advice. If you looking for help with your real starting lineup conundrums, read on.

Here are my picks to roll, and get rolled, in Week 13 of the 2013 season.

Andy Dalton, QB, Bengals at Chargers. It all about the matchups with the up and down Red Rocket, so look for a stellar outing against San Diego generous secondary. Though he been particularly susceptible to interceptions of late, the Chargers have only picked off opposing passers six times all season. With an extra week to prepare, Dalton and AJ Green should have their way with this porous pass defense.

Chris Johnson, RB, Titans at Colts. CJ1K got off to a great start against the Colts in Week 11, piling up most of his 86 yards and both TDs in the first quarter. Then he faded. But not as badly as Indy has since then. Johnson should excel on the indoor track and he might even treat us to a full 60 minutes of production.

Shane Vereen, RB, Patriots at Texans. Stevan Ridley keeps fumbling his way into his coach doghouse, while Vereen workload and production have grown steadily since his Week 11 return. Get the multi purpose tailback in your lineup against the imploding Houston defense. If he doesn punch in a score on the ground, Vereen is a solid bet to take a swing pass the distance.

Alshon Jeffery, WR, Bears at Vikings. Starting your receivers against the Minnesota secondary is a bit like shooting fish in a barrel. Jeffery makes the decision easier now that he so frequently targeted by Josh McCown. Even better, the passing game won be disrupted by the elements.

Stevie Johnson, WR, Bills vs. Falcons. With his groin injury and the bye week behind him, Johnson is fully expected to suit up in Toronto for a tantalizing matchup with the vulnerable Atlanta secondary. Get him back in your lineup and enjoy the favorable returns.

More thumbs up (excluding the no brainers): QBs Cam Newton, Nick Foles, Josh McCown, Eli Manning, Carson Palmer; RBs Andre Brown, Bilal Powell, Fred Jackson, Alfred Morris, Giovani Bernard, Rashard Mendenhall; WRs Josh Gordon, Michael Floyd, Harry Douglas, Riley Cooper, Antonio Brown, Mike Wallace, Brian Hartline.

Russell Wilson, QB, Seahawks vs. Saints. If you have a safer option this weekend, seriously consider sitting Wilson on Monday night. Though he have the benefit of the rowdy home crowd, he be hampered by a feisty Saints defense that has surrendered only 11 scoring passes all season. New Orleans also boasts a league high 37 cheap jerseys sacks, so Wilson effectiveness as a runner will also be compromised. Nasty weather is a possibility as well.

Knowshon Moreno, RB, Broncos at Chiefs. Moreno took a beating on Monday night but finally has returned to the practice field, albeit in a wholesale nfl jerseys limited capacity. Though the team is hoping he be ready to roll Sunday on his injured ankle, he could very well be on a snap count. Add in a tough opponent that held him to 79 rushing yards (without a score) in Week 11, and Moreno is a dicey start. Given the persistent fumbling issues of his backups, there no telling who would benefit most from Moreno limited workload or absence.

Andre Ellington, RB, Cardinals at Eagles. With Rashard Mendenhall seemingly back to full strength, Ellington fantasy star turn has fizzled in recent weeks. He even been unable to take advantage of favorable matchups, like this weekend tilt in Philly. It doesn help that Mendenhall is Arizona preferred goal line horse and that Ellington apparently tweaked his knee in practice this week. Hilton, WR, Colts vs. Titans. Blame Andrew cheap nfl jerseys Luck funk. Blame Tennessee CB Alterraun Verner, who held Hilton to a paltry 44 receiving yards in Week 11. Blame Rio. Whatever the cause, Hilton is unlikely to break out of his two game skid this weekend. You been warned.

Andre Johnson, WR, Texans vs. Patriots. It hard to sit a receiver of AJ caliber, but it even harder to argue with his own assessment: suck as an offense. Facing a surging New England defense that just clamped down impressively on Peyton Manning and his potent receiving corps, Case Keenum could be in big trouble this week. Which means Johnson could very well suck again.

More thumbs down: QBs Mike Glennon, Andrew Luck, Case Keenum; RBs Ryan Mathews, Lamar Miller, Bobby Rainey, Stevan Ridley, BenJarvus Green Ellis, Ben Tate, Mark Ingram, Steven Jackson, Benny Cunningham; WRs Steve Smith, Percy Harvin, Tavon Austin, Hakeem Nicks, Kenny Stills, Cecil Shorts, Tiquan Underwood, DeAndre Hopkins, Danny Amendola, Golden Tate, Lance Moore.

Donald Brown, RB, Colts vs. Titans. Brown was dreadful in Week 12 against the stout Cardinals run defense, cheap nfl jerseys which held him to minus 1 combined yards on the day. But the going gets easier when one of the NFL worst run defenses comes to town. Brown gashed this squad for 94 total yards and a pair of TDs two weeks ago. Meanwhile, Trent Richardson remains little more than a distraction.

DON BE THE BONEHEAD WHO to start the newly activated Michael Crabtree in his first game back on Sunday against the Rams. There little doubt he be on a snap count in deference to his rehabbed Achilles, and it will surely take some time for the wideout and Colin Kaepernick to re establish their mojo.

2010 Auburn Tigers football team

The 2010 Auburn Tigers football team represented Auburn University in the 2010 2011 college football season. The Tigers, led by second year head coach Gene Chizik were members of the Western Division of the Southeastern Conference and played their home games at Jordan Hare Stadium. The Tigers completed a 12 0 regular season record and defeated South Carolina in the 2010 SEC Championship Game. On January 10, 2011, Auburn defeated Oregon in the BCS National Championship Game in Glendale, Arizona, 22 19, to win the first undisputed national championship in school history, and their second overall. This offense relies on an attacking ground game from different spread sets, using fakes and misdirection, to set up a play action passing attack through the air, while snapping the ball almost as soon as it is placed to give the defense less time to react to different looks. Defensive coordinator Ted Roof's efforts were aided by replenished depth at Wholesale Snapbacks the linebacker and secondary positions, utilizing a collection of the 3 4 and 4 3 defensive formations, also known as Multiple D strategy.

Eventual Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Cam Newton led the Tiger offense to a 13 0 record, SEC Championship, and a berth in the BCS Championship game, which was played on January 10, 2011. Auburn led the SEC in scoring offense, total offense, rushing offense, pass efficiency, first downs and first down conversions. Defensively the Tigers were improved from 2009 but less impressive than on offense, ranking in the lower half of the SEC for most defensive categories. However, the Tiger defense was notably improved in the second halves of its 2010 games, allowing an average of only 3.7 fourth quarter points and shutting out five opponents (Mississippi State, South Carolina, Louisiana Monroe, Georgia and Alabama) in the final period.

Auburn came into the season against an Arkansas State team ready to show off their new spread offense. Although Auburn only surrendered 43 yards on the ground, a total of 366 yards offensively were given up by a soft Auburn defense. Arkansas State quarterback Ryan Aplin threw for 278 yards while completing 28 of 42 passes. However, Auburn's offense shined despite very basic playcalling. New quarterback Cam Newton set a school record for quarterbacks running the ball with 171 yards on the ground, as well as 186 yards passing, while completing 9 of 14 passes. In a back and forth game, the Tigers were able to pull out a 17 14 victory when State's late attempt to tie or perhaps even win the game failed. Cameron Newton followed up his impressive debut by going 11/19 for 138 yards and 2 passing TD's. He also showed off his running ability once again by gaining 70 yards on the ground on 18 carries. Newton was Auburn's leading rusher for the second straight week. Sophomore Onterio McCalebb added 68 yards for the Tigers. The Auburn defense looked much improved from their week one game with Arkansas State and kept the Bulldogs in check most of the night. DT Nick Fairley led the charge on defense. He recoved a fumble, intercepted a pass, and had 1.5 sacks. This game was the site of ESPN's College GameDay and lived up to the hype. Early it looked as if Clemson was going to blow Auburn out of its own building as the visiting Tigers stormed out to a 17 0 lead. Auburn rallied to get a FG before half time and then showed no ill effects of the 1st half in scoring three 3rd quarter touchdowns chi flat iron to take a 24 17 lead. Clemson rallied for a TD of their own and this game ended up going to overtime. Auburn managed only a FG on their OT possession and it looked as if Clemson had tied the game with a FG of their own, but a procedure penalty ended up costing the visiting Tigers big time. Clemson missed the second FG attempt and Auburn had survived another heart stopping game, 27 24. Cameron Newton bounced back after a horrible first half and finished the night 7/14 for 203 yards with 2 TD's and 2 INT's. Onterio McCalebb was big in the running game again for Auburn, gaining 81 yards on 10 carries. Freshman Michael Dyer added 69 yards on 16 carries. Darvin Adams finally had a breakout game, catching 5 balls for 118 yards and a TD. The Tigers improved to 4 0, notching their 700th win all time, after defeating the South Carolina Gamecocks. Cameron Newton proved once again just how special a player he is by accounting for all five Auburn TD's. Newton threw for 2 and ran for the other 3 while accounting for 334 yards of total offense. Freshman Michael Dyer outplayed South Carolina freshman Marcus Lattimore, by gaining 100 yards on 23 carries. Lattimore only had 33 yards on 14 carries. Stephen Garcia played well but two fumbles led to Steve Spurrier pulling Garcia in favor of freshman Connor Shaw. Shaw threw INT's on each of his possessions and the Tigers once again survived. The Auburn defense played better against the run, but South Carolina still threw the ball pretty much at will. The Tigers went ahead 7 0 on their second play from scrimmage on a 50 yard touchdown run by sophomore tailback Onterrio McCalebb and the ensuing PAT by Wes Byrum. Junior quarterback Cameron Newton connected on 94 yard pass touchdown pass completion to wide receiver Emory Blake on the Tigers' fourth play from scrimmage, making the score 14 0 with 10:22 remaining in the opening period, and the rout was on. Unlike the previous four games, Newton had no rushing attempts except for a 4 yard loss on a quarterback sack, but he completed 14 of 19 passes for 249 yards. Mario Fannin led the Tigers' rushing attack with 89 yards on 10 attempts. The Tigers offensive attack was once again led by quarterback Cameron Newton, who scored four touchdowns in the first half to lead Auburn to a 31 17 halftime lead. Newton contributed 408 yards of offense to the Tigers' attack. He rushed for 198 yards on 28 carries, and completed 13 of 21 passing attempts for 210 yards.

The Wildcats' attacks was led by quarterback Mike Hartline, who completed 23 out of 28 passing attempts for 220 yards, and senior running back Randall Cobb, who rushed for 47 yards, caught seven passes for 68 yards, and threw a 6 yard touchdown pass of his own to freshman tight end Jordan Autmiller. The Tigers' victory avenged a 21 14 defeat they suffered against the Wildcats in 2009 the Wildcats' first victory over Auburn since 1966. With the victory, the Tigers improved their record to 6 0 overall, and 3 0 in the Southeastern Conference, where they moved to a half game behind Western Division leader LSU. The Tigers were once again led on offense by quarterback Cameron Newton, who rushed for 188 yards and completed 10 of 14 passes for 140 yards. The much anticipated duel between Newton and Razorbacks' quarterback Ryan Mallett failed to materialize when Mallett left the game in the 2nd quarter because of a concussion. Mallett was replaced by sophomore backup Tyler Wilson, who completed 25 of 34 passes for 332 yards and four touchdowns. Before Mallett left the game he completed 10 of 15 passes for 95 yards and one touchdown.

The Razorbacks took an early 7 0 lead on 7 yard chi flat irons touchdown pass from Mallett to Van Stumon, but barely two minutes the later the Tigers tied the game on 5 yard rushing touchdown by Newton. The two teams combined for 34 points in the second quarter. Auburn scored two touchdowns, one on a 4 yard run by Mario Fannin and the other on 13 yard run by Onterrio McCalebb. Wes Byrum kicked two field goals in the period, including a 26 yarder on the first half's final play to give the Tigers a 27 21 lead.

Wilson, the Razorbacks' back up quarterback, connected on touchdown passes of 37 and 24 yards in the third quarter, Cheap Hats while Byrum kicked a 28 yard field goal and Newton rushed for a 1 yard touchdown, making the score 37 35 in favor of Auburn at the end of the 3rd quarter. Newton's touchdown was set up by a 99 yard kick off return by McCalebb.

Arkansas went ahead 43 37 less than a minute into the fourth quarter, but Auburn went ahead for good when Newton completed a 15 yard touchdown pass to wide receiver Emory Blake with 11:44 left in the game, making the score 44 43. The Tigers' defense was responsible for the their final three touchdowns. Zac Ethridge returned an Arkansas fumble 47 yards for a touchdown. On Arkansas' next possession, linebacker Josh Bynes intercepted a Tyler Wilson pass and returned it to the Arkansas 7 yard line. Two plays later, Newton scored on a three yard rush, making the score 58 43. Three plays later, Bynes intercepted another pass by Wilson.

the 20 people who make D

Gaithersburg native Brynn Tucker, 27, didn't take a formal dance class until her freshman year of college, but she's always been inclined to express herself through motion. In 2009 she joined Synetic Theater, the movement based theater company founded by husband and wife team Paata and Irina Tsikurishvili, and has since appeared as Guinevere in the troupe's 2010 production of King Arthur and as Queen Anne in this year's production of The Three Musketeers. She debuted her first solo show, A Guide to Dancing Naked, at this summer's Capital Fringe Festival. The lively physical piece, which encourages audiences to shake it in their birthday suits, won the festival's Audience Award for Best Dance Physical Theatre performance. Caroline Jones

People are very limited in their movement, like people hardly ever put their arms over their heads, and my show focuses on breaking free of that but creating your own space for it. It can be in your living room, your closet, your kitchen, whatever you want. because I know a lot of people do CrossFit, yoga, and all that stuff but I challenge people to dance naked because it's really simple: All you need is a mirror, some music, and your naked self. Taking the time to do that by yourself is really important, especially getting naked. When you strip yourself of all of that, you're pretty much your raw self, and I don't think people get a lot of opportunities to do that. It's about getting people grounded and checking in with themselves at the end of the day. transplants, New York state native Alex Bearman, 33, fell in with the intramural sports crowd when he moved to the District in 2003. He teamed up with soccer nonprofit District Sports a year later, and by 2009, Bearman took over as director. Since then, the organization, which returns part of its membership dues to the community, has grown from about 80 to 250 teams, encompassing 3,500 participants and 13,000 registrations per year. Bearman still plays for his own team, the Badass Panthers. Alexis Hauk

I look around and I think the league is more diverse than it's ever been. I see the same guys who are playing pickup at Tubman on weeknights also playing in District Sports games. So I think we've made it accessible to them. But frankly, I don't know if we've done enough. There's been some talk about trying to maybe just rent the space for them so we'll start our rental time at 6:30 even though we're not starting the league game until 7:30, to allow for an hour just for open play for community members, so we can protect that, because it's important. Unfortunately, for better or worse, the gates to the field are locked. I think there's a number of issues at play there.

I was a page in the Senate in high school for Sen. Ted Kennedy. And that's when I really started putting it together: There's something messed Cheap Jerseys up about the fact that we all pay taxes and we don't have representation.

After 212 years of it not happening, I wouldn't put any money on it happening in a [specific] year. I think it can happen in the next 10 years. I really do. But it's only going to happen if more of us get involved. If every single District citizen gets involved and does a little part. The fact that 55 Senate offices say that we were the first person they've heard from in the District about statehood, it's ridiculous. If we don't take ownership of it as a city and a people, it's not going to happen.

I think that it's challenging to try to introduce new things into a system where people are used to the old way of doing things. You've got campaign operatives who've been doing politics in the city for decades, who are used to certain systems; you've got advocates who have been looking at campaign finance reports for years who have an opinion about what needs to change; and then you've got elected officials who have opinions as well. So I think trying to arrive at a balanced approach to improve the system was a challenge.

I was disappointed because that was never a part of our deliberations. I think people approached this task in earnest. We were working over the summer, during recess. We were meeting regularly. We were reading through the materials. We were interviewing witnesses. We really took this task seriously and we put in a lot of effort, and I don't think anybody who was associated with that committee had any ulterior motive except for to look into the allegations and to see if it warranted additional sanctions. rappers angling to follow you know who to national stardom. In conversation he speaks sparingly and carefully, but with the same seriousness and intensity of his breakout mixtapes, Law, Fxck Rap, and Law 2. His ability to make both traumatized, emotional street salvos and aggressive, head busting bangers places him in a lineage of streets oriented regional rap legends stretching from Houston's Scarface to Baton Rouge's Lil Boosie. With his next mixtape, El Jefe, due out in 2014, however, Glizzy may be poised for something bigger than hometown hero status.

I think that there's an extraordinary wealth of culture here. There's a real population of readers and people interested in ideas. is that it's not what you first think of about the city the arts and literature and yet you've got this community of very curious, very interested, engaged [readers]. I think that has something to do with it not being the dominant assumed culture of the place.

Wow. I think that there are a number of examples and that was what the District of Literature program was, in part, about. literature, and it's not just federal, it's not just novels about what goes on inside the federal government or the CIA. There are terrific works about our neighborhoods and the fabric of this city. Probably, the book that, to me, is just an extraordinary look at the city is Lost in the City by Edward P. Jones. It's an exceptional book in its own right and it's so particular to place. Without in some broad, conceptual way talking about the city, it talks about the history of the city.

We focused on listening to what the community needs and wants and then trying to deliver on that. King [Ave. Adams. But the whole time looking for and seeking out a restaurant operator that was willing to go in there and have a sit down, wait staff and bar restaurant. And finally Uniontown was able to come about. That was completely in response to what we heard in community meetings. The Hive, the Anacostia Playhouse all of those are coming out of community input, rather than me as a developer coming in.

Yeah, but we did land use meetings in McLean also, and in McLean or Shaw or Lamond Riggs or Anacostia, it's all the same at the end of the day. People live there. You don't. People want to be respected, they want to know that their opinions have been heard. You can't always do everything that people want you to do, but it is not my neighborhood. It's their neighborhood. And I hope that people appreciate that there's a sincere effort to make a better neighborhood and not just a profit. But we do still have to make a profit I've gotta pay the bills. area may have more than 70 theater companies, but they often leave little space for artists searching for new ways of creating work. Efforts like the Capital Fringe Festival, local playwright initiatives, and companies creating "devised" theater have helped disrupt the old methods of making theater, at least for disruptive types. What makes 32 year old dramaturg and "creative trainer" Hannah Hessel Ratner's Project Gym different is its focus not just on the development of theater but also the development of theater artists. During its sessions on Sundays and Tuesdays, it's a place for creating and refining plays, sure, but it's also a place where artists can figure out what a play, or acting, or theater, means to them. Oh, and sometimes there are puppets. Jonathan L. Fischer

The idea took shape when I was in graduate school studying dramaturgy and looking at new play development specifically, and thinking that the new play development system was only churning out more of the same kind of work and wasn't doing anything to move the field forward or to look at other kinds of performative art that were happening. I was at Columbia University, and the visual art program was doing a tremendous amount of performance based work at the time. theater, we're constantly going from show to show to show, and there's no real time to grow as an artist beyond the specific show you are working on. So the idea was, "How can we create new work that's not already built into the model that we have. How can we collaborate more? How can we generate new ideas?"

People bring in work at various stages, so there are the very, very beginnings of ideas and sometimes those develop into things and keep growing and keep growing, and sometimes they don't. I think either way is fine, because both are opportunities for artists to explore and failure, or deciding something isn't right for the moment, is certainly a part of that cheap prom dresses exploration. I have seen things get worked on that have then continued to be worked on in other places. And I think one of the things artists have found really exciting about Project Gym is the opportunity to connect with artists they didn't already know.

Puppet day was this past Sunday. The first half hour of the session is really just a warmup. Part of that is purely physical stretches, moving, walk in a circle, walk faster, all sorts of silly get the body moving things. Sometimes we'll play a game. We created an excellent version of duck duck goose where instead of using duck duck goose, you can use any animalThen, one artist leads a workshop, and that can be on anything they have that they can share and teach with the groupAnd then in the second half of the session, one artist leads what I call "project time." For some artists it's "I'm bringing in a script, and I want to look at a specific scene," or "I want to do an improv of something I'm thinking about and I want to generate new ideas through improv."

For this past week it was Matthew Pauli, who is an amazing clown and actor and puppeteer. And he basically brought in his whole bag of puppets. He's interested in using puppetry for a clown piece he's using for next year's [Maryland] Renaissance Festival. So he's like, "I just want to see people play with the puppets I already have just so I can learn new things about them." It was a fairly loose session where everyone grabbed a puppet. We have our sessions at the Round House Education Center, which has a great studio room with a mirrored wall, which is fantastic for puppetry. He and I are following up to talk about what he learned and what are the next steps, and if there is something he wants to focus on. We were talking about how at his next one we'll learn how to make puppets. So that was Sunday. Pretty great. Working at Middendorf Gallery, he promoted the best photographers in town before launching his own gallery in 1993. Some things have changed at Hemphill Fine Arts, which turns 20 this year. Hemphill moved the space from Georgetown to 14th Street NW in December 2004, a harbinger of such rapid change that other, newer galleries along the corridor have already been hyper gentrified out. Hemphill isn't going anywhere and neither are his artists. (In 20 years running Hemphill, only three artists have left his stable.) Hemphill says that he's weathered good times and bad by building relationships that last, and by adapting his practice to fit them. Kriston Capps

The late '80s, early '90s, was a severe economic downturn. I rode around my bike for a year. I had about a year where there was no job out there for me. I interviewed at Christie's for a position in the photo department there. The pay was so bad I wasn't even interested in the job. I interviewed for a couple curatorial jobs, but I didn't quite carry myself the way curators carry themselves. My metabolism wasn't right for that environment. I had no money. I thought, what've I got to lose? I got letters of recommendation and went to the landlord for the space we had in Georgetown. At the time I signed that lease the total of the lease for the five year period was $400,000 or $500,000 I had $500 in the bank. They were so desperate for someone they didn't look carefully at me, and my letters for recommendation were so nice, from major collectors and board members. The great thing about starting a gallery when the art market is at the bottom is that you always feel like you are winning.

In the fall of the stock market and the credit markets in 2008, I knew how bad it was going to be. I didn't know how long it was going to take. I built these relationships with certain law firms back when I was with Middendorf, and that expanded as the boom in law firms increased. We had three or four of the largest law firms in town, and most of those law firms were national or international firms. They all all they all disappeared starting the summer before. In 2007, we had a canary in the coal mine. We came back here [to the gallery] after certain meetings where they said, "We're not going to buy art anymore," and there were different ways they said it, but basically, that was the message. We came back here and said, "Shit."

People think galleries open up, and a lot of younger galleries do this right off, because someone says, "I know what's great art, and I'm going show these 10 artists and they're the greatest artists and you should buy them." It's a condescending attitude. Having come from an art background, it's very easy to slip into that, thinking it's your aesthetic that people should enjoy. I never really thought that I had a superior vision. I thought I had a superior way with art. I didn't necessarily have to show one kind of art or another, which actually meant that I could put together a gallery where, hopefully, no one of the artists are competing with each other except for real estate. I want that wall/no I want that wall, no I paint the best paintings of squares/no I paint the best cheap evening dresses online paintings of squares. Sometimes a collector will say to me, "What do you have in your house?" That's none of your fucking business. You should be strong enough to buy the thing that you relate to.

By looking back at me every five seconds, for one. Or speeding up or crossing the street. I got very frustrated at the fact that it really wasn't anything that I did or I could do. So I ended up doing this [piece]. It was just an empty room with a bunch of different silhouettes of myself outlined in different colors. And there was a color changing light that I installed in the space as well. The hook was that the poses of my silhouette ranged across a spectrum from aggressive [to] a defeated, hands down, shoulders slumped kind of pose. It was an NFL Jerseys Wholesale unspoken thing that the only crime reported on the crime alerts was black and Hispanic men. And nobody was questioning how maybe that could create an environment of subtle aggression towards [black and Hispanic] tudents. So I was telling this nonlinear story about the mental state of somebody who has to deal with this. That style of storytelling is something that I have employed throughout my work.

My first official performance was at the University of Maryland. The event was called "The Way We End It." So it was Kunj [Patel], Wilmer [Wilson IV], and myself, and we just did a daylong performance exhibition. [I had a bike, and] I replaced the back wheel with the fan, and the fan was attached to the monster, so it would inflate and lunge towards me I basically brought it to life by biking. At that time, the two major parallel stories both symbolic and literal were the Deepwater Horizon oil spill that had happened where it's petroleum products being a source of both prosperity and death, and it's created by humans but got way bigger than any one human can deal with. I was really into Golems at the time, and their symbolic reference and [this] idea of creating something bigger than yourself. So that piece ended up being about the machinations that are set in motion by humans but spin out of their own control and that is what the petroleum situation has been.

Catch even a short set from local stand up comic Jenn Tisdale, and you'll leave knowing a whole lot about Jenn Tisdale. The 33 year old Fort Totten resident derives a hefty portion of her material from her own life she's got caustic jokes about not knowing her dad, moving back in with her mom, happy stuff like that. But Tisdale's biggest reveal yet wasn't a bit in her stand up act. It was the dirty movie she made with boyish porn prince James Deen. She says she did it for the story and she'll never, ever do porn again. For Tisdale, it's back to the open mics. Ally Schweitzer

I'm surprised. I wasn't a big fan of making them all one color; I thought there were a lot of other things we needed to do. But the mayor wanted it, and you know, that carries a lot of weight with me. But when I started to see it, I began to realize that they gave a whole different impression to the vehicle than all this ragtag different colors, signs, and everything else that kind of really didn't catch the eye. People didn't feel particularly excited about them. The things I've heard from people now say, "Oh boy, I like taking these, they really look like taxi cabs."

The closest we came was I was approached once by an individual who will be unnamed that I knew and knew me and knew well, interested in towing that our hack inspectors when they impound, they have to send for towing. He wanted to know what it would take to get his towing company included in our list. And I said, "It's very simple, all you have to do is file an application, show that you have the necessary business licenses, paid all the necessary taxes, have a facility, have drivers, have vehicles that are safe, and we put you on the list and you're called on a rotational basis. There's no contracts or anything." Well, they weren't interested in that.

I was recruited by the city administrator, who strongly recommended me to the mayor. After discussions with the mayor, I agreed to do this challenge. I would say from a personal standpoint, that was in June of 2011, and I had lost my wife in April, after a short marriage of 55 and a half years. I was sort of feeling pretty sorry for myself, with a lot of time. Even though I was doing consulting work and I was working for [construction firm] McKissack McKissack on school modernization. Nevertheless, it wasn't really demanding on me to the point where I was putting my problems behind me. So I saw this as something that would really preocccupy me. And if I knew then what I knew now, I probably wouldn't have taken it.

What Does America Have To Say About The Carolina Panthers

The Carolina Panthers improved to 6 3 earlier today when they went on the road and beat the defending NFC Champions, the San Francisco 49ers. The victory for the Panthers put them in prime position for a playoff spot and even a possible tie for the division lead if Dallas can beat New Orleans tonight. Today win also did something else, it garnered the attention of the national media and America. Every Panthers fan, at some point in their lives, has been bitter at the national media for not giving enough love and attention to their team. After Carolina win the Panthers were all the rage, KeepPounding was trending on Twitter and ESPN put up Cheap Jerseys China a poll asking if the nation thought the Panthers were replica louboutin playoff bound. Everyone loves to see their team getting love so I put together some of the tweets from national personalities that mentioned the Carolina Panthers and their big win:

Super Bowl champion head coach and current NBC NFL analyst Tony Dungy:

Before the Cowboys Saints game when Dan Patrick, replica christian louboutin shoes Rodney Harrison, and Wholesale NFL Jerseys Dungy discussed the Panthers game on NBC, Dungy had this to say about Carolina defense: are very special. I thought they had a great game plan fought harder than San Francisco. State Warriors guard Stephen Curry:If you needed convincing about the Panthers.

Are Humans Reversing Cat Domestication

When your cat sees a stranger, does he come and snuggle close or hiss and run away?

Whether a feline friend is a lap cat or a claws out kitty is largely affected by their socialization as young kittens. But at least part of cats' friendliness may be in their genes. And the widespread practice of spaying or neutering cats before they are adopted may be inadvertently Aaron Rodgers Super Bowl Jersey selecting for aloof cats, by ensuring the friendliest animals don't reproduce, one researcher says. (6 Secrets to Unlock Your Cat's Personality)

But not everyone is convinced.

Domestic and feral cats are genetically indistinguishable, so spay/neuter programs are unlikely to nudge the gene pool one way or the other, said Carlos Driscoll, a University of Oxford biologist who is studying the genome of the wildcat from which the domestic cat emerged at the National Institutes of Health in Bethesda, Md.

Domestic cats arose from a subspecies of cat called Felis silvestris lybica between 10,000 and 20,000 years ago in the http://www.packersauthenticofficialshop.com/EDDIE_LACY_SUPER_BOWL_JERSEY.html Near East or North Africa. But the genetic differences between this wildcat ancestor and its tamer offshoot are very subtle: Wild cats and domestic cats look alike and are able to mate with one another, Driscoll said.

Just 10 to 20 gene changes may be responsible for domestication in the tame cats, though scientists don't know which ones.

Because so few genes are associated with domestication, spay and neuter policies that ensure the friendliest cats don't reproduce could be "pushing domestication backward" to a noticeable degree in the next 50 to 100 years, Bradshaw told LiveScience.

Selecting for less friendly cats?

To support that notion, Bradshaw conducted a simple test of cat personality in Southampton, England: He had strangers enter the houses of kittens in the area, try to pick up and stroke the cats, and then watched the kitties purr or hide.

In an area where spaying and neutering rates were highest more than 98 percent kitties tended to be a bit more skittish around strangers, possibly because they have to "import" their fluffy friends since their own pals aren't able to reproduce. Less affluent areas had bolder, friendlier cats. (Images: See How Cats See the World)

"What we suggest is people [in affluent areas] are getting kittens in from the countryside from feral cats that are a little bit wilder," or from a few feral females and just a few tomcats that are "living in the shadows," Bradshaw said.

Therefore, intensive spay and neuter programs may be artificially selecting for the less tame cats, he said.

"Neutering is in terms of biology, in terms of population dynamics a mortality factor," Bradshaw said. "If you neuter, you've removed its genes from the pools, so when you look at the next population, you have to rule it out."

The study has a few caveats: It hasn't been published in a peer reviewed journal, and the team only Aaron Rodgers Super Bowl XLIX Jersey looked at about 70 cats in all.

And even if the findings are borne out, Bradshaw isn't suggesting a return to the old days, when cats mated freely and the unwanted kittens were tossed in a sack and drowned.

Cats kill billions of animals a year, so cities www.packersauthenticofficialshop.com/JORDY_NELSON_SUPER_BOWL_JERSEY.html rightly want to keep feral cat colonies in check. But if that's cities' aim, Bradshaw said, they should find the ultimate source of the problem: food.

"Are there people feeding them, are they stealing the food, is it bad hygiene in restaurants?" Bradshaw said.

Reduce the available food, and the feral cat population will naturally decrease, he said.

Identifying the genes involved in cat personality could also help, by allowing breeders, for the first time, to select for traits such as friendliness and gentleness, rather than just looks, he said.

Driscoll doesn't think spay and neuter programs will make cats any less friendly. For one, no studies have ever shown any genetic differences between house kitties and feral cats which are, after all, just domestic cats that fend for themselves and Clay Matthews Super Bowl Jersey haven't been socialized to live with humans.

Moreover, simply too many cats with too much freedom are on the Clay Matthews Super Bowl XLIX Jersey prowl for spay and neuter programs to change the entire gene pool.

"The population of domestic cats has been stable for a very long time," Driscoll said. "There's a lot of genetic inertia there. This material may not be published, broadcast, rewritten or redistributed.
