5 Things You May Not Know About Sen
New Jersey Sen. Frank Lautenberg wasn't a regular on the Sunday talk shows. He never ran for president or cut much of a national profile.
Still, the liberal Democrat, New Jersey's longest serving senator, left his mark as a legislator on a wide range of issues, from transportation to public health to the environment.
First elected to the Senate in 1982, Lautenberg retired in 2000 after serving three terms. But he returned to the political arena in 2002, after a scandal led his former Democratic Senate colleague Robert Torricelli to end his re election bid. Lautenberg stepped in for Torricelli for an abbreviated campaign, and then won another six year term in 2008.
Here are five things you may not know Cheap authentic jerseys about Lautenberg:
1. He made his fortune in data processing. One of the wealthiest members of the Senate, Lautenberg was a co founder of payroll services giant Automatic Data Processing (ADP), where he served as chairman and CEO in the 1950s. He even served as a former president of the Association of Data Processing Services Organizations.
As a senator, Lautenberg sometimes boasted that like his onetime New Jersey Senate colleague Bill Bradley a former pro basketball star he, too, was a member of a Hall of Fame: the Information Processing Hall of Fame.
2. Lautenberg's father convinced him of the need for an education by taking him to the Cheap jardon shoes grim silk factory where he worked. He once told a jarring story about how his father taught him an important lesson about bettering himself.
"My father took me into the [silk] mill and took me by the hand and said, 'I want you Cheap authentic nfl jerseys to remember.' I was 12 years old," Lautenberg said in a 2002 interview for an oral history project. "He hated working in the shop and the factory. He said, 'You see how dark it is in here? Do you hear the noise? Do you see how filthy it is?' And he took my hand and he rubbed it along the silk fibers because he worked on a machine called a warp, and there were weavers and other trades. And he took my hand and he rubbed along the fibers, and Authentic jerseys wholesale it left a film. And he said, 'You must get an education. You must never work like this.' "
3. He had never ventured beyond New Jersey or New York City until he served in the military. Lautenberg served in the Army Signal Corps during World War II, where he worked on telephone and radio communication infrastructure in Europe.
In a 2005 interview, he said that when he was initially assigned to Camp Crowder, Mo., for training in various military communications specialties, it was the first time he'd ever been outside his home state or the New York metropolitan area.
4. He was a very sharp elbowed politician. Lautenberg had an epic rivalry with Torricelli, the home state Democrat with whom he served for four years in the Senate. According to one account from a 1999 Democratic caucus meeting, Torricelli threatened to cut off a piece of Lautenberg's anatomy.
While Gov. Chris Christie was gracious in his tribute to the late senator Monday, the two didn't exactly see eye to eye. Lautenberg once referred to Christie as "the king of liars" and described a Christie decision in 2010 to kill a multibillion dollar Hudson River tunnel as "one of the biggest policy blunders in New Jersey's history."
For his part, Christie in 2012 dismissed Lautenberg as a partisan hack. On Monday, Christie acknowledged those tensions. "It's no mystery that Sen. Lautenberg and I didn't always agree," Christie said. "But never was Sen. Lautenberg to be underestimated as an advocate for the causes that he believed in, and as an adversary in the political world."
5. He was a former smoker. A tobacco industry nemesis, Lautenberg helped write the law banning smoking on airline flights in 1987, during his first term in the Senate. He also helped write the law that expanded the ban two years later to almost all domestic flights and led efforts to ban smoking in federal buildings.
Call it the zeal of the converted: Lautenberg was once a cigarette smoker himself, as was his mother. Lautenberg's father, in fact, frequently admonished his wife for her smoking.

Sports fans could soon tune in to YouTube
(Mashable) UPDATE We've just heard from the NHL, who tell us: "The NHL is not in discussions with YouTube to stream live games. The NHL has not had conversations with the Google spokespeople mentioned in the Bloomberg report."
YouTube may be a hot bed for lip dub videos and life casting teens, but soon sports fans could find a good reason to flock to the site: YouTube is reportedly in talks with the National Basketball Association and the National Hockey League to broadcast games live.
Last year, YouTube announced that it would begin live streaming Indian Premier League cricket matches, a venture that was apparently very successful. According to Business Week, the games brought in 55 million visits from more than 250 countries.
Gautam Anand, Google's director of content partnerships for Asia Pacific, recently said that YouTube plans to show more live sports, but declined to elaborate on the particulars of talks with the NBA and NHL.
Google is apparently also talking with other pro sports leagues, as well as soccer leagues in Europe.
"It's fair to say that there will be a lot more appealing Cheap soccer shoes sports content you'll see on YouTube," Anand said. "We have ongoing conversations with pretty much everyone."
By offering such content, Authentic nfl jerseys YouTube and Google can boost their ad revenue, seeing as how viewers would be spending more time on the site.
Lately, we've been seeing YouTube seemingly Authentic jerseys from china getting more serious about being an entertainment hub, rather than a forum for cat videos. Just the other week, it was rumored that YouTube CEO Salar Kamangar will be building out the site's recently instated talent program (last July, the video sharing site announced its YouTube Partner Grants Program to ramp up quality content) by offering big name stars their own YouTube channels.
In addition, parent company Google recently acquired Widevine, an on demand video service known for its multiplatform DRM and adaptive streaming technologies, and the web has been buzzing for months about the possibility of it acquiring web video production company, New Next Elite nfl jerseys Networks.

5 of the worst NBA players to grace the court
Top 5 of the most forgettable players in recent memory
Most players can be useful when the simplest of opportunities fall on their lap. Even a strictly defensive player without an ounce of offense can accumulate some (garbage) points aka tip ins, put backs, and dunks. And they don't necessary have to drop in bunches in one full game. Just enough to shy away from establishing an ongoing meltdown marred by simple uncontested plays, that you ought to bury in those little offensive sequences; so a player can avoid the moniker 'miserable joke'.
Never particularly athletic, so being the mad dog Madsen meant he had to be aggressive. But too much aggression with little IQ shapes up as a major disaster. At least when he misses, there's a chance the ball can be re possessed by an offensive rebound. Instead, he routinely bulldozes himself onto players, committing plenty of offensive charges. On a nightly basis, Madsen averages more fouls than scoring points; securing a severely negative ratio on the stat sheet. A massive let down to his team especially considering how poor of a scorer he is (2.2 ppg for his career).
If he's five feet away, and Coach outlet online not knocking down players, often, the forward is whistled Wholesale nfl jerseys for Nfl jerseys wholesale travelling violation. When Madsen somehow evades those mis haps, literally his feet has to be planted right underneath the rim, and still needing some space so he can nail it in at an average of 40%.
3) Greg Kite C 6'11 240 lbs
Kite was la suck on the offensive end in the 1980s. On put back attempts (being his only offensive domain), far Wholesale Coach bags too constantly, spilling the ball to the wrong hands, implements one team is playing with four players against six.
Luckily his Celtic team never encountered more than a little disparity heading their way. Kite rode the pine as a 12th man off the bench after all, and not to be completely out done, managed to own one of the darndest pair of hands the game has seen.
2) Manute Bol C 7'7 210 lbs
Averaging 3.1 ppg (37% shooting) was a career high in 1989. A 7'7 beanpole lacking serious mobility spells misery for one, yet a pleasure to behold for all around, subsequently prompted the utmost awkward shot attempts ever assembled, bricking off and around the rim in the ugliest fashion.
A given lay in would be a high degree of difficulty, usually ending looking like a turnaround jump hook. There's no such thing as an easy field goal made for the Sudanese giant.
Being a teammate of his can be apprehensive and very frustrating. Bol had his little share of miracles in his time; under those bizarre circumstances, when the ball found it's way through the hoop, an eruption of sirens ignited the crowd into a state of euphoric frenzy.
1) Michael Ruffin P/F 6'9 248 lbs
Arguably, there's no other player who committed more career personal fouls (942) than points in total (716), in his 9 year career. Staggering figures, unbelievable. That's an average of 1.7 pg and 2.3 p/f in 14 mins, equating a statistic of 4.3 ppg (40% shooting) and 5.7 fouls per 36 minutes.
In one 40 min game Ruffin posted 10 points (1 out of 5 shooting) and shot 8 out of 16 in free throws.
Obviously offense wasn't his forte, Ruffin was able to stick in the league due to his tenacity as a defensive player.
Carlos Boozer didn't exactly pan out for the Bulls, in fact, he's been a disappointment. Boozer still averaged 16.2 ppg and nabbed 9 rpg and shot 52 percent from the floor in the past two years for the Bulls. These are respectable numbers. That's hardly a bad player in my view.
Not one of the players that I have listed has more than a career of 6.6 points per 36 minutes. Eric Montross and Travis Knight's career average of 8.8 points and 10.1 points per 36 minutes, certainly tops the five players (listed on my article) in scoring production and proficiency.
Montross being the defensive big and Knight being the 7'o spot up jump shooter (43 percent career shooting), might have been lousy in the latter stages of their career, but earlier on they weren't near the worst players on the offensive end.

How To Play Fantasy Football
The NFL season would seem incomplete nowadays without the presence of Fantasy Football. When you play fantasy football, you have become the owner and coach of a football team. It is hard to remember what a NFL game was like without every play having fantasy football implications.
As the owner, you can assemble a team of stars and role players, attempting to find the right balance of players to accumulate stats to score well in your league. As the team's coach, you attempt to pick the right starting lineup for that week's games, making sure that your best players aren't sitting on the bench and you are not starting any player that is Out due to an injury or Bye week.
For anyone interested in starting a league, all you need are a few basic guidelines to get started. The beauty of fantasy football is that there really isn't any set set up that you are required follow. It's your fantasy league, so design it any way Coach handbags outlet you want. Of course, you are limited to the creativity of the website that you have chosen.
Your league may prefer to play in a free, generic league. You will have many websites to choose from for that. On the other hand, you may want to full service website with many flexible configuration options and dedicated customer service personnel. If that describes your league, you will want to look at Maximum Fantasy Sports. Ultimately, to enhance your NFL viewing experience, participating in a fantasy football league at MFS, or elsewhere, will allow you to do that. Okay, now let's take it step by step and get you started. Bear in mind, this article would look like War and Peace if we covered every single nuance of fantasy football, so we are going to focus on the highlights.
Gather Friends to Fill out a League
Assemble a league of football owners who are willing to participate through the end of your fantasy season. It makes it more enjoyable if they are willing to wheel and deal, wager a little money and talk a bit of smack. There is no set number of teams per league, but 12 teams seem to be the standard. You can certainly form leagues that are bigger and smaller than that, but make sure that you have an even number of teams if you are playing in a head to head league as no one wants to take a week off. If you are playing in a Total Points league with no direct matchups, an odd number of teams is acceptable.
Elect a commissioner. The commissioner should be somebody who every team owner respects, or at least trusts. The commissioner, who most likely also owns a team in the league, is responsible for the league constitution, bylaws, configuration and all final decisions. The commissioner also collects and distributes the league contributions and
maintains the peace. A good website will grant the commissioner a set of tools that allow him/her with the power to control what functions the owners are allowed to perform (managing their roster, posting messages), to manage another owner's roster, rerun stats and many other controlling functions.
Setting the scoring system and rules for your league are very important. There are many variations to the game and scoring systems for fantasy football are as different as the NFL and Arena Football Leagues. Make sure all rules and settings are set in stone before the draft is held. This article could go one for many, many pages just discussing the Coach purses outlet variety of different scoring configuration options available in fantasy football. Let's take a peek at the most basic settings.
Ultimately, it all comes down to how scoring is set up. Though many early leagues focused simply on touchdowns, most leagues nowadays award points for touchdowns and yardag. Four points are commonly awarded to any player who throws a touchdown pass and six points for rushing or receiving touchdowns. One point is commonly awarded for every 25 passing yards and every 10 rushing or receiving yards. It is tempting to go with the feast or famine approach and draft a QB and his main WR. Often, this is a bad idea, unless, of course, you have Tom Brady and Randy Moss on your fantasy team. Some leagues also give bonus points for longer TDs, such as, two points for TDs between 50 and 81 yards and three points for TDs over 81 yards.
The size of rosters also varies from league to league. Most leagues have a fixed number of starting positions and a fixed number of bench players, usually adding up to 15 17 players. The starting positions (slots) usually feature one QB, two RBs, three WRs, one TE, one K and one D. Variations include using Special Teams or individual defensive players instead of a single defense. Also, "swing" positions are becoming more prevalent. These are also known as "flex" positions. This slot allows for more than one position. The swing positions often used are a combination of WR/TE or RB/WR, though there are a handful of others. In the end, the accumulated points of one team's starters are matched up against the points of another team's starters and the end result is either a victory or a loss.
Occasionally, a tie will sneak its way into the picture. A good website will give you the option of breaking ties during the regular season. Tie breakers are mandatory should they occur during the playoffs.
The website should generate the league schedule after the draft is complete using the divisional structure the commissioner has established. League schedules are generally set up so teams in the same division play each other more often than other divisions. This will vary depending on how many teams are in your league and how many teams the commissioner chooses to make the playoffs. The championship game needs to be scheduled between two teams no later than week 17 of the NFL season. One common choice is to finish the fantasy football regular season in week 13 or 14 and allow 6 teams to make the playoffs. This will grant the top 2 teams a playoff Bye, thus awarding them for their performance in the regular season. No one likes to dominate the regular season and then lose out in the first week of the playoffs.
Rosters are filled out by running a player draft. The draft order is randomized by the commissioner or the website. Unlike the NFL draft, fantasy football drafts are normally run serpentine style. For instance, in a 12 team league, the draft order would be 1 through 12, with the 12th team having the first pick of the second round and going back up in reverse order. In that scenario, the first team to pick wouldn't select again until the 24th pick, but would then start the third round with the 25th selection, should they not fall asleep during the lull. Should this happen, the draft control will make the selection for the snoozing owner.
Drafts can be held online or offline. If held online, drafts are normally held real time so each owner can make their choices based on how the draft is evolving. This can be a bit time consuming, so another option is to run an automated draft. An increasingly popular draft method is having a fixed budget and bidding on players to fill out a roster.
Throughout the season, you will need to change players out in an effort to manage injuries, Bye weeks or address weak areas by Cheap nhl jerseys trading from areas of strength. Teams can trade and pick up free agents until the end of the season, unless there are deadlines established for these actions. Trades tend to have some sort of approval process in place to assure the league that trades are considered fair. The approval process generally falls on the shoulders of the commissioner to make a decision or upon the owners in the league to submit a vote (majority rules).
When it comes to free agents, it is common for leagues to apply a waiver system. True free agents can be acquired without application of any rules. Players attempted to be acquired that are in waiver status have to flow through waiver processing to determine which team will be awarded the player. There are a number of waiver processing rules.
The most common is a rolling priority list. This is initially established in the reverse order of the draft order and then gets adjusted as teams acquire players in waiver status. The team with the lowest waiver priority number is awarded the player desired when waiver processing occurs. When that processing happens, the team's waiver priority is then set to the highest number and all teams between have their number adjusted down by one. Other waiver processing options allow teams to bid on free agents, award a player on waivers to the team with the worst record among acquiring teams or have made the least numbers of transactions.
Making your Push to the Championship
It is very difficult to make the playoffs, let alone the Championship game, in a fantasy football league without devoting a lot of time to the game, making wise draft and transaction choices and having your players stay healthy. You have no control over the latter, so your team must be equipped to handle devastating injuries, should they occur.
The common draft rule is to back up your studs. If you have LaDainian Tomlinson, grab his backup in the draft as well. If you have Peyton Manning, grab his backup in the draft. It is a tough choice as Peyton does not get hurt, but, should it happen, would you feel more comfortable with his backup in your lineup, an untested rookie or the Jets QB?
Another common sense rule is to not draft injury prone players or running backs over 30 too early. It is hard to justify the reward over the risk. Drafting Deuce McAlister in the 4th round last year in many leagues was a season killer when Adrian Peterson was still available. Out of all the positions, rookies make the biggest impact in the running back category.
The most important rule is to know your league settings. Be aware of the scoring system, waiver processing rules and all deadlines. You cannot build a balanced team unless you know how to balance the scoring across the starting positions on your team.
Once you have that accomplished, you want to review your team at the midpoint of your season and evaluate what it will look like in the playoff weeks. If you have some players that you feel may be looking at getting some rest, it is best to trade them before the trade deadline to ensure that your roster is as strong as possible during the playoffs. It is difficult to gauge how much a player will play in weeks 13 17 far in advance, but it is a big risk to go into the playoff battle with players Nfl jerseys from china who may sit after one half.
One alternative to that is to utilize a fantasy football feature offered by one site; Maximum Fantasy Sports. This feature is In Game player changes. This feature can be used all season or have it turned on at a certain point in the season, such as, the first week of playoffs. Configuration of this feature allows an owner to swap in different, unplayed players at their respective positions. So, if Joseph Addai is scheduled to play the first half of Indy's week 15 game and you have Kenton Keith on your bench, you could swap out Addai for the second half and swap in Keith to maximize performance at your running back slot.
I hope you spend your off season gloating about your team's dominance. No matter how your season ends, you want to review what went wrong and what went right during your season so you can improve the following year. Also, take notes on little used players that showed a lot of promise as the season went on. In the off season, pay attention to free agency and the NFL draft. Note which teams improved in skill areas that may result in new starters that you can draft in later rounds in your upcoming fantasy football draft. Though the NFL season ends in February, fantasy football is a year round fixation. He began creating his own football and baseball fantasy leagues at the ripe old age of seven and tracking stats and standings on paper. After the birth of fantasy sports on the internet, he participated in and evaluated numerous fantasy football sites, only to be disappointed at the generic nature of these sites. None could mirror the creativity that came from running leagues manually. Bill decided to create a real time fantasy football league website that included all of the best features that he has used over the years, some of which have never been attempted at any other website. Membership is FREE.

NFL Football Logo History of the Legendary and Prominent NFL Shield
The well known and renowned NFL shield has certainly made a name for Cheap authentic jerseys itself in the sports world. The crest is not just a representation of the team Nike shoes outlet but also a symbol for victory, glory, aggression, loyalty and celebration.

The text has been scripted in thick and straight fonts with the letter L curved at the end that adds an artistic touch to the monogram.
In 2008, NFL created a leaner, meaner and darker version of their old emblem. In the new monogram, the crest was created to be slightly thinner and taller which the shade of blue going darker. The subtle changes in the emblem were made so that famous NFL would be able to update itself according to time but would not lose the traditional and historic touch that the corporation feels pride over. The stars in the image have also decreased to 8 from 25 to represent the 8 divisions that NFL caters to. The image of the football in the design is also made to look more 3 dimensional which no longer resemble a hamburger. While the colors and the basic shape remains the same, the text has lost its previous curviness and has been replaced with a sharp edged text that depicts professionalism and aggression.
This symbol has been an inspiration to many American football teams like the NY Giants logo, Minnesota Vikings football logo and the Houston Texas logo.
In conclusion, NFL has created a brand mark that contains all the important elements that any national emblem should have; it is a symbol of history, tradition, patriotism and pride that any American footballs fan would be proud to wear.

Three Innovative Uses
Josef MengeleDNA fingerprinting was employed to identify the skeletal remains of Dr Josef Mengele, the Nazi Wholesale jerseys china doctor who performed experiments on hundreds of thousands of victims of Nazi oppression. He was known as the 'Angel of Death' by prisoners at Auschwitz Birkenau concentration camp. When WW11 ended he was caught by the Allies, but eventually freed (his captors did not know who he really was) and ultimately he became one of the world's most wanted war criminals. In 1990 Alec Jeffreys was asked to help with the examination of the bones of a man who had drowned in 1979, and had been buried in Sau Paulo in Brazil.
