ugg boots classic mini Nathan Chen completes 6 quads in Olympic free skate

She won a bronze in the super G at the 2010 Vancouver Games, where she also won a gold medal in the downhill. The 33 year old American missed the 2014 Sochi Olympics after surgery on her right knee.

Earlier in the week, the women’s giant slalom and the men’s downhill were rescheduled because of high winds.

Curling a beacon of hope in a troubled world

Some fret that the world is falling apart. But talk to curlers and their fans at the Pyeongchang Olympics and they’ll say that curling may be the perfect antidote to our troubled times. Curling’s rules dictate that players treat their opponents with kindness.

There is no need for referees, because curlers police themselves. And the winners generally buy the losers a beer. Curling enthusiasts say society has much to learn from this inclusive and honorable sport.

In the 500 years since curling was conceived on the frozen ponds of Scotland, it has remained largely immune to the cheating controversies and bloated egos common in other sports. This is thanks to what is known as “The Spirit of Curling,” a deeply ingrained ethos that dictates that curlers conduct themselves with honor and adhere to good sportsmanship.

It’s not that curling isn’t competitive. Like every other Olympian in Pyeongchang, curlers all want the gold just not at the expense of their integrity.

But in the free skate he nailed virtually every element. He even tried a sixth quad, a loop, but put his hands down on the ice. Still, his 126.86 points for technical virtuosity put him in another stratosphere, and his 215.08 points for the free skate were a personal high.

Chen was guaranteed to rocket up the standings with a 297.35 total, perhaps into the top 10.

According to the agreement, Heffron salary will be $67,000 the first year and $75,000 the second year. He will receive an $8,000 sign on bonus within a few days of signing the employment agreement.

ugg office Nashville mayor backed daughter of affair partner for city job

classic cardy uggs Nashville mayor backed daughter of affair partner for city job

George Walker IV / The Tennessean

NASHVILLE Within months of taking office, Mayor Megan Barry recommended the adult daughter of the head of her security detail the man with whom she later admitted to having an affair be hired for a job in the city legal department.

The daughter got the job.

The position as an entry level city attorney was the first newly created job in Nashville’s legal department in two years. It was not part of the existing budget. Barry approved the new job opening. No other candidate was considered.

Metro Law Department Director Jon Cooper said it was his decision, not the mayor’s, to hire Macy Amos, who was at that time a recent graduate of Belmont University College of Law. Amos, 26, had interned with previous mayors Bill Purcell and Karl Dean.

“The mayor did recommend Macy during a meeting I had with her at some point, as did a number of people in the legal community,” Cooper said in an email.

Amos was the “logical choice” for the job, Cooper said. She was hired in January 2016.

Barry admitted to an extramarital affair with Amos’ father, Sgt. Rob Forrest Jr. It is unclear whether the mayor abused her power to weigh in on the hiring decision.

The Democratic mayor has given vague and conflicting responses to questions about when the relationship began with Forrest, a city employee and her subordinate.

Barry told the USA TODAY NETWORK Tennessee the affair began in the spring of 2016 months after Amos was hired. At a press conference last week, Barry told reporters the relationship began “several months” after she became mayor in September 2015. She told a television station the affair began “soon” after she took office.

She has declined to say when it ended.

Ethics experts say that whether the mayor made the recommendation during her romantic relationship, or in its prelude, her involvement in a hiring decision may constitute a misuse of her office.

“There’s a general norm and principal that people should not use their office for private advantage, including for those you associate with,” said Richard Briffault, a professor at Columbia Law School and chair of the Conflicts of Interest Board of New York City.

“It turns on whether something is for her private advantage what she was getting out of it. If getting something out of it would be satisfying an intimate partner, it’s a misuse of office, period.”

Barry’s recommendation of Forrest’s daughter for a city job may also have violated the ethics rules she signed when taking office.

A February 2016 executive order issued by Barry, a former ethics and compliance officer, bars city employees from “giving preferential treatment to any person,
ugg office Nashville mayor backed daughter of affair partner for city job
” losing “impartiality,” or “affecting adversely the confidence of the public in the integrity of Metropolitan government.”

“That’s why we place constraints on individuals, in part to constrain them from doing anything unethical and in part to retain the public trust,” Briffault said.

Barry, through a spokesman, initially did not respond to a question about whether she was romantically involved with Forrest at the time of Amos’ hire.

After the USA TODAY NETWORK Tennessee report on the mayor’s recommendation to hire Amos, her spokesman Sean Braisted said in an email: “Just to clarify, Mayor Barry was not having an affair with Sgt. Forrest when Macy Amos was interviewed, hired, or started working for Metro.”

Braisted did not directly respond to other questions that included when the mayor met Amos or whether she viewed her involvement as a conflict of interest.

Nashville Mayor Megan Barry gives statement on affair

Instead, he sent a statement that said Amos was recommended by many inside and outside city government.

“Macy Amos is an exemplary employee who earned her job because of her qualifications and passion for Metro Government,” the statement also said.

Forrest, through his attorney David Raybin, declined to comment.

The hire

Amos met all the qualifications for a newly created position as a member of the city’s legal staff when she was hired, according to Cooper.

Amos, a recent law school graduate, had previously interviewed for a job with the office, and checked in after that at least four times about getting a job, he said. When the new job was created, she was a “logical choice,” Cooper said.

Amos had interned in the Davidson County Sheriff’s Office, served as a law clerk in Davidson County Circuit Court and served as a summer associate for the firm Tune,

Interstate 440 is sort of Nashville pavement analogue to Spain La Sagrada Familia.

Like the Barcelona basilica, notable for its modernist Gothic curvilinear facades designed by Antoni Gaud 440 is seemingly under constant construction and simultaneously a source of derision and begrudging appreciation.

It also hard to imagine getting home before American Idol while sitting on 440 at rush hour, because the same powers that be who shepherded the controversial project 25 years ago agreed to make it as unobtrusive as possible and thus only two lanes in each direction.

That a tough ask for a road with average daily traffic north of 100,000 vehicles.

Traffic is so bad, in fact, that 440 interchange with 24 is the 27th worst bottleneck in the country, the American Transportation Research Institute announced last week.

It the first time the junction made the list, and lo and behold, TDOT also announced last week it will start adding eastbound lanes at the interchange in October.

This raises some obvious questions.

First: If not widening, what the heck have they been doing in that part of the loop for the better part of the last gazillion or so years? Apparently, repaving (which raises another question: why not widen and repave simultaneously?).

Next: Where are those lanes going to go exactly? The loop is already snug against the neighborhoods between Nolensville Road and I 24 and at times elevated. TDOT says the plan involves lane shifting and, perhaps, sorcery.

The project only a mile and a half stretch is slated for an August 2013 completion date. Then, after 34 months of increased snarl, Nashville drivers can experience decades of delayed gratification. In the meantime, TDOT suggests seeking an alternate route but offers no suggestions on what that might be.

Those who find an effective shortcut might make it home in time to vote on American Idol, if they lucky. The rest will be stuck waiting interminably, like the citizens of Barcelona waiting for Sagrada Familia completion.

Looking for new talent to maintain aircraft, the Federal Aviation Administration teamed up with Nashua Community College to bring city high school students to NCC aviation technology center for a hands on field trip.

NCC aviation technology professor Bob Donadio said the goal of last week in My Boots field trip is to find high school students interested in the field.

the field trip was a lot better than I thought. I didn think we going to be able to try something, said Cameron O a junior at Nashua High School South.

The group of five high school students from Nashua High School North and South went through a practice application and interview process conducted by a panel of FAA employees before making it to the field trip.

of our teachers asked the class which students were interested, and we filled out the paper and we had to get interviewed by three members of the FAA. It was the first time I ever got interviewed like that, said South junior Kevin Erickson.

Donadio said there are about 20 students in the avionics program now half underclassmen, half upperclassmen.

Anthony Janco, an FAA aviation safety inspector senior adviser, and Julie Seltsam Wilps, aviation and space education program manager, coordinated the field trip with the college and high schools.

try to promote aviation careers, all aviation careers, aeronautical, aerospace careers, anything in STEM science, technology, engineering and math, Seltsam Wilps said.

She said the aviation industry comprises many career paths,

and used a typical commercial flight as an example.

have no idea how many jobs it took to get you from Point A to Point B. This is why we do the program. We try to expose them to the industry, she said.

Janco said aviation technology training is an alternative to a typical four year degree program.

for the kid who could have gone to college the kid who could have gone to Harvard. That who I want working on my airplane, Seltsam Wilps said.

She said the field has potential for upward mobility, with some companies sponsoring additional education and training for employees.

can turn wrenches the entire time, or you can move up, she said.

Janco said much like the rest of the skilled labor market, trained avionics technicians are becoming harder to find.

was a big influx after Vietnam people went back into the field. That not happening anymore. an Air Force veteran, said the FAA is making strides to facilitate Iraq and Afghanistan veterans moving into civilian avionics work as well, but that demand for workers remains high and experts predict a severe shortage by 2030.

According to an August 2014 edition of Aircraft Maintenance Technology magazine, 76 percent of readers are 51 years or older, and the Department of Employment and Economic Development estimates that the aviation industry will have more than 1 million job openings in the next 10 years.

The high school outreach seems to make a difference, with one or two students out of each field trip moving on to study aviation technology, Janco said.

think a couple of kids today got the bug. They might get hooked, he said.

Because NCC is an FAA approved aviation maintenance technician school, graduating from the aviation program satisfies the experience requirement for the FAA aviation mechanics certificate.

Aside from the in My Boots field trips, the FAA hosts summer camps for middle and high school students interested in aviation career called the ACE Academy, with the closest location in Bedford,

NASHUA Charges stemming from recent arrests ranging from welfare fraud and identity fraud to drug offenses and knife attacks have led to indictments handed down by the grand jury for Hillsborough County Superior Court southern district in Nashua this month.

An indictment is not an indication or proof of guilt, but represents the grand jury determination that enough evidence exists for prosecutors to move the case forward in Superior Court.

A man and two women from Nashua were each indicted on welfare fraud, the result of their recent arrests for allegedly lying to state officials in order to obtain benefits and illegally selling or transferring benefits to each other.

And a New Jersey man had four felony indictments and four misdemeanor “information” charges handed down against him, allegedly for posing as another man, obtaining other people information and manufacturing or possessing fake government identification cards, according to the charges.

Charged in the welfare fraud case were Nashua residents Donald Mayfield Jr., 34, and Amy Laponsee Mayfield, 30, both of 81 Anvil Drive, and Evelyn D. Mallette, 33, last known address of 9 Pleasant St.

Amy Mayfield faces three counts of welfare fraud, two of which are Class A felonies and the other a Class B felony, for allegedly making false statements to state officials that her husband, Donald Mayfield, was not living with her, which resulted in her obtaining more than $1,000 in benefits to which she was not entitled; and for allegedly using Evelyn Mallette EBT card and her food stamp benefits on numerous occasions between 2011 and 2014.

Donald Mayfield was indicted on one count of welfare fraud, a Class A felony, for allegedly lying to state DHHS officials by telling them he lived alone, in order to obtain more than $1,000 in benefits to which he wasn entitled, between January and August 2012.

And Mallette is also charged with Class A felony welfare fraud, which alleges that between January and March 2014, she knowingly transferred or sold food stamps, which led to other people using her EBT card and food stamp benefits to purchase items.

Meanwhile, the New Jersey man, Gendersso Javier, of Camden, was indicted on three counts of identity fraud obtaining personal information, and one count of identity fraud posing as another, all Class A felonies; and four counts of possessing or manufacturing a false government identification, Class A misdemeanors, for allegedly stealing other people information and posing as them, attempting to obtain cellphones using another person identity, and possessing false ID cards, all on Aug. 10 in Milford.

Other indictments handed down this month include:

Carley Williams, 31, 6 Nevada St., Nashua. One count each, first degree assault deadly weapon and first degree assault domestic violence, Class A felonies; one count each, second degree assault deadly weapon, bodily injury; and second degree assault domestic violence, Class B felonies; and two counts, endangering the welfare of a child, Class A misdemeanors, for allegedly knowingly, and recklessly, causing bodily injury to a male household member by swinging a knife at him, resulting in a laceration to his head, and for allegedly driving a car containing two children while she was intoxicated, all on Sept. 11 in Nashua.

Melissa Kimball, 27, of 507 Broad St., Apt. 39, Nashua. Three counts, sale of a controlled drug, second offense; and three counts, sale of a counterfeit drug, second offense, all special felonies, for allegedly selling fentanyl to a confidential police informant and selling a substance represented to be heroin, but was not, in December 2015 and January 2016 in Nashua.

Kaysha Barriffe, 23, of 4 Orange St., Apt. 6, Nashua. One count each, first degree assault deadly weapon, and first degree assault domestic violence, both Class A felonies, for allegedly stabbing an intimate partner in the wrist with a knife, on Sept. 9 in Nashua.

Mark Duggan, 50, last known address 396 East Merrimack St., Lowell, Mass. Two counts, non support, Class B felonies, for allegedly knowingly failing to provide support he was legally obligated to provide to his minor children, by order of the Nashua family court, between February 2009 and September 2016, the arrearage in excess of $10,000.

HAMPTON, Va. (WVEC) An American treasure is being honored in Hampton.

A new facility at the NASA Langley Research Center is named after Katherine Johnson. She’s the woman featured in the movie “Hidden Figures” for her inspiring work at NASA Langley. People knew the mathematician as a “human computer” who calculated America’s first space flights in the 1960s.

The 99 year old worked for NASA at a time when it was extremely difficult for African Americans especially women to get jobs in the science field. “My problem was to answer questions, and I did that to the best of my ability at all time,” said Katherine.

She was awarded the Presidential Medal of Freedom in 2015. She said, “I was excited for something new. Always liked something new”. Sen.

Governor McAuliffe said, “Thank goodness for the movie and the book that actually came out and people got to understand what this woman meant to our county. I mean she really broke down the barriers.”

ugg leather Narcissism and Leadership

mens scuff ugg slippers Narcissism and Leadership

Barack Obama has been treated as a heroic figure, who lead an impeccable campaign. There are high expectations for his ideas of leadership in Washington. “Change,” “Bipartisanship,” and “No Drama Obama” are catchwords every day in the press. He is compared to Lincoln and FDR. These leadership characteristics are used to show how different the all good new president is from the all bad “worst in history” President George W. Bush.

But just a few years ago, the press was filled with laudatory comments about Mr. Bush. He was seen as a “strong leader,” “focused,” and surprisingly able to stay “on message.” He was elected twice. Also, in the past few years, we have seen other successful leaders in high office end up in disgrace: Governor Blogojevich of Illinois, Governor Spitzer of New York, and Governor McGreevey of New Jersey. There have also been businesses with leaders who rose dramatically and then fell from grace dramatically: Enron, WorldCom, etc. And then, of course, there are the leaders of the banking industry and auto industry whose personal greed and personal deficits are now exposed for all to see.

What distinguishes truly successful leaders from those who dramatically rise and fall? I believe that it’s the degree of narcissism in their personalities. Narcissism is seen as basically a negative trait: self centered, insensitive, a drive to be seen as a superior person, a hero, etc. Yet a modest amount of narcissism helps a leader withstand criticism and push forward with an unpopular idea an idea which may become the latest invention or medical breakthrough or economic solution or peace treaty that saves millions of lives. It takes a strong personality to overcome many barriers, whether personal, financial, physical, etc.

So what’s the difference between “healthy narcissism” and unhealthy narcissism also known as “pathological narcissism” or Narcissistic Personality Disorder? When it becomes a disorder, they have the following basic characteristics:

They can’t handle any negative feedback, even important and useful feedback.

They disrespect and alienate those around them and have no real friends.

They lack empathy and are oblivious to the pain and suffering of others.

They are so absorbed in their sense of superiority that they can’t see their downfall coming.

In short, they lack social awareness and can’t stop themselves.

So why do they get as far as they do? The flip side of these negative characteristics is a predictable set of characteristics that make them attractive as leaders:

Great charm and intense emotional enthusiasm for their cause.

An ability to hook into other peoples’ fantasies of success and power.

An ability to speak in appealing terms and simple phrases.

A keen sensitivity to what impresses other people.

An incredible and contagious sense of confidence; you feel really good around them.

In other words, the very characteristics that can lead to disaster truly lead us toward narcissists. It appears to be part of our human nature to follow leaders based on personality characteristics alone. This makes sense, when you figure that humans have gotten together in groups for thousands of years to accomplish great things well before we had the reading and writing skills that we have today.

A narcissistic leader will emotionally inspire us to work hard together for a group “cause,” even though that leader may be a complete idiot. It takes a while to find out which leaders are effective in which times, and which ones are extremely off base. The time it takes to figure this all out is much longer than the time it takes to appeal to us emotionally. Therefore, it appears that humans have a short cut for getting organized especially in a crisis: Just follow the most attractive leader; namely one who sounds good, who looks strong, and who has lots of confidence. But in modern times of complex crises, this can lead us astray.

let’s return to the question I asked at the beginning of this short article: How can you distinguish the Obama’s from the Bushes, or the Blogojevichs, or the Ken Lays of Enron, or the Madoffs of Wall Street? They all have (had) charisma, confidence and lots of followers who absolutely believed in them. Those personality characteristics will only got them so far. The difference is whether leaders have the openness to listen and willingness to learn about what really works in their present environment and to keep on learning. This takes a dose of humility, self reflection, and the ability to stop themselves when necessary.

So when you vote for a politician, or hire an employee, or choose a neighbor or a date: don’t ask yourself if they are charming or make you feel good. Ask yourself if they listened and thought about what you said. Look for examples of when they learned from making a mistake (you can even ask them that question). Ask what their self doubts are. Charm can interfere with your objective observations and even your negative gut feelings.

Beware! Never stop paying attention and thinking. That’s what pathological narcissists do. It’s not surprising that what offends us most about them is that they are rude, uncaring, and “thoughtless people.” I think that’s the key difference between healthy narcissism and Narcissistic Personality Disorder: thoughtfulness.

Hmm! I’ll have to think about that!

Napping sailors rescued by Newbiggin lifeboatSTRANDED sailors sparked a rescue after having a nap in a moored boat that then drifted out to sea.09:29, 2 SEP 2012Updated18:08, 25 FEB 2013Richard Martin, of Newbiggin Lifeboat Station, said: “The trio had made a call for help first light after waking up to discover their plight. They weren’t aware how they had got there.

“We suspected that they might have been out having a drink.

“I think the whole experience really surprised them. Thankfully, they didn’t panic and jump overboard and try to swim back, then we would have had a tragedy.”

The men were able to ring for help from a mobile phone and described their location as being in sight of Sandy Bay Caravan Park.

Humber Coastguard ordered the deployment of Newbiggin Lifeboat Station.

The Newbiggin Atlantic 75 class lifeboat CSMA 75th Anniversary was quickly launched with three volunteer crew on board.

The lifeboat reached the stranded 20 foot vessel, which was about 400m off the beach at Cambois, within minutes.

The crew determined that no urgent medical assistance was required and a tow was put onto the boat for a safe passage to the shore.

“If they had been further out to sea, they would have had no signal and it would have been another matter entirely,” said Mr Martin. “Circumstances were in their favour.”

Paul Davison, from Newbiggin Lifeboat station, said: “This was an unusual call out but they had the presence of mind to remain on board the vessel and await rescue by the lifeboat.”
