We started the 2012 Games off right by flying on the 16th out to London and brought the hand made flag that is flown in the athlete village by hand and delivered it to the pilot on our United flight. There was lots of media excitement in the Chicago airport as we formally delivered it to the pilot where it rode in the cockpit overseas. Jacob Wukie and myself spent some time in the cockpit prior to our flight and chatted it up with the pilot and took some great photos in the cabin.
Passion is applied to something that you are interested in. It is not a beacon of light in the darkness that will tell you that you’ve arrived at your destiny. When I talk to someone who is trying to find their passion out there somewhere I know that it will be a long time before they find it..
For example, although there are potentially 50 million people who are employable in the Indian crafts sector, a fast diminishing number of less than 25 million people are sub optimally employed, and Indian crafts constitute only two per cent of the world trade. This sector suffers from underemployment, a lack of organisation, and is preyed upon by a few big players with short term market targets that eclipse long term sustenance. Therefore, institutions like the Crafts Council of India and the Zonal Cultural Centres have their work cut out..
The club will now worry some of its other players will follow suit with David Willey and Liam Plunkett also members of England’s one day set up and increasingly looked at as limited overs specialists. For the counties this is a real warning with other players certain to be thinking over similar decisions. No longer can the counties rely on being a player’s main employer.
Compared to the authentic, the materials feel a little stiffer on the inspired version at first and do not feature the modified Flyknit. However after a few wears, they feel tmuch better. What I’m amazed is that the inspired versions actually have the proper Drop In Midsole, with the Zoom in the heel.
What do you choose as your inaugural outfit?Not that I can presume to guess what Ms. Franklin was thinking, but was she possessed by the spirit of Minnie Mouse (or perhaps a very young girly girl with an affinity for grayscale) when she tricked herself out in that curious ensemble? The woolly cape coat was a fetching and functional choice, and you can’t fault the Queen for sporting thick gloves to combat the chilly weather.But my heavens! Why on earth would one show up at this historic occasion wearing a wacky hat comprised almost entirely of a giant, spangled bow? The woman looked like a giant wrapped gift! Had there been a little more lam involved in the outfit, I would assume Franklin had been the victim of yet another dastardly drive by styling by that flamboyant nutbar Andr Leon Talley (who’s inflicted his crimes of bad taste on Jennifer Hudson in the past). As it stands, the Queen of Soul’s inaugural costume almost (but not quite) outdid the garishly ugly easter chick yellow muumuu she wore to last year’s Grammy Awards.
