Masahiro Tanaka Relieved New York Yankees Deal Completed

Masahiro Tanaka Relieved New York Yankees Deal Completed

Right Handed Pitcher Gets $155. Million Deal for 7 Yrs.

Masahito Tanaka was on my flight and we didn’t know it,
until we went through customs to an avalanche of
photographers and journalists.
I waved at the cameras but not sure they got my good side!
HAHA

Masahiro Tanaka
TOKYO — Masahiro Tanaka says he chose to play
for the New York Yankees because
they appreciated him the most
among the many teams who were chasing
the prized signature of the star Japanese pitcher.

Take care of your Team!
In addition to Tanaka’s contract,
the Yankees must pay a $20 million fee
to his Japanese team, the Rakuten Eagles.

Tanaka’s agreement calls for $22 million
in each of the first six seasons
and $23 million in 2020, and it allows him
to terminate the deal ( COOL PERK) after the 2017 season
and become a free agent.

Now this is what I call working for a good company!
You make a ton of money and you can become free agent.

Doing what you love, writing about it, or sharing it,
and taking care of your Team- do not ‘burn bridges’
and you come out way ahead in the long run.

Work at Your Desk and Burn Calories?

Amazing new product that can be done on the cheap,
but this one is intuitive and learns your schedule
and preferences- height etc.
STIRDesk

A few years ago a MD
did a year long study
where he put in into his office,
treadmill desks.

His employees, nurses,
got on the treadmill and
walked at ONLY 1 mph..

They all lost 30lbs or more
during the 1 year test.
Not changing their eating habits,
but by just walking/ moving very slowly
instead of sitting
they all lost weight.
And got healthier.

Along comes this amazing desk in the video below.

I tried my own remedy for sitting to long
and that was a mini bike peddler under my
desk.
2 minor draw backs while peddling, even slowly
is, a- I wiggle a bit to much to keep typing..
and b- my knees hit the keyboard table.

Back to the drawing board.. so to speak!

Herculean waves pound Europe

Herculean waves pound Europe

Surfers give chase as historic swell bears down on the coastal regions

The same storm system that paralyzed the U.S. in a deep freeze is already having a dramatic impact in Europe, where herculean waves are pounding the coasts, attracting curious onlookers and some of the world’s best big-wave surfers to its foreboding shores. Beaches in Ireland, England, France, Spain, and Portugal have all been under siege by surf ranging from 30 to 60 feet.

Professional surfers like Jamie Mitchell and Shane Dorian have been tracking the giant low-pressure system for days, and weighed their options as to where conditions would be optimal before heading to Europe from their winter homes in Hawaii. Get too close to the massive storm and conditions would be too messy. But choose a spot too far away and they’d risk missing some of the biggest and best waves. In their search for a big-wave break sheltered by wind conditions, they decided on a renowned spot called Belharra, off southwest France.

Surfers like Mitchell and Dorian spend their winters chasing one of the coveted Billabong XXL Big Wave awards, the most prestigious honors in the big-wave surfing community. Everyone monitoring the situation on Monday was stunned by the huge spike in wave size that was showing up on weather buoys. Bill Sharp, the Billabong XXL event director, posted the following comment Monday afternoon as surfers were embarking on their quest: “62+ FOOT SEAS were recorded via satellite within the Hercules storm over the Atlantic earlier today. The 62095/M6 Buoy off Ireland leaped to near 40 feet a few hours ago before it quit reporting. (It’s been knocked offline for the last couple of hours … who knows what it’s going through out there right now!) But a 20-foot jump in wave height in just two hours? Hang on, this is about to get really heavy.”

If this surfer were 300 miles closer to the storm, this wave would be torn apart by wind, but in southwest France the conditions were close to perfect as 50-to-60 foot waves marched in.

As of Wednesday, it appears Mitchell, Dorian, and the others surfers who gambled on Belharra reaped the sweetest rewards, as conditions were optimal in southwest France. “Jamie looks to have caught the wave of the day,” says Sharp. “Unfortunately, he fell while trying to make the drop, so he won’t be eligible for Ride of the Year, but it was a valiant effort, and there’s always the biggest wipeout category.”

After reviewing the video of what transpired on a boat afterward, Mitchell was in good spirits. He noted how after traveling all that way, he had to at least try to make the giant beast. “But I’m not sure what else I could have done to make it,” he said.

In the end, the storm seems to have peaked Monday night, meaning some of the biggest waves may have gone unridden. But its sheer size gives Sharp some optimism about what’s possible in the future. “This is the most intense storm I can remember seeing in my 20 years of tracking these things. There was an area bigger than Spain on the Atlantic Ocean with sustained winds of 50 knots. That’s just massive.”

But Sharp, and the surfers who chase waves, know that every single element has to come together for the magic to happen. “In some places it’s pretty clear the swell peaked overnight,” Sharp explains. “In other places the local weather just tore things up, and it was too stormy. But one thing this storm proves is the 100-foot wave is easily possible. All it has to do is match up with the right reef, under the right conditions, during daylight hours

The Declaration of Independence is just one example.
It was men who chose to REBEL against Britain,
which at the time was an act of treason.
IF the movement didn’t work, they could have all gotten

It worked!

People who diet, have major success more than others
when they write a daily journal of what they do and eat
and their emotions that day.

Creative people share their poetry

Tiny House Living, Guests Coming, Roll Out Guest Bed Plans

Roll Out Guest Bed Plans– Free in Link

Andrew Odom over at Tiny Revolution being a creative soul,videod his new roll out guest bed.

With the help of Malissa Tack a fellow tiny houser and 3D grpahics Designer they together produced some great plans. I would love to have these design folks as my close friends and neighbors.
When you see this video, you will surely want to make one to have, TINY House or not!

Using simple ‘hardware store’ materials, Andrew built a dual wooden accordion mechanism which opens up to become the bed platform and then the other one opens to be the bed support. Instead of a Murphy Bed, this is a simple way of knowing you are set up for guests and have a decorative piece of built in furnishing.

Watch the video and then you go to Drew’s website http://tinyrevolution.us/ where you can download the plans for free!
