Bills general manager Buddy Nix had no trouble assessing the attributes of Vince Young after agreeing to a one-year contract with free agent quarterback Friday.

Strong arm. High mobility. And then there's his winning record as an NFL starter.

When it comes to configuring Young's role in the Bills, Nix does not guarantee that, except to say that the starting job is already taken by Ryan Fitzpatrick to so young to compete for a backup job.

"We are always looking to try to improve our team," Nix said. "It is a competition for the backup quarterback job, and not the starter .... He knows it. That's the way it is."

That does not devalue Bills' hopes for Young, who compete with the return of Tyler Thigpen backup.

"The man's already two Pro Bowls. He is 31-19 as a starter in this league," said Nix. "We think he can do it again."

Today we have lost a legend in the history of the Ford Motor Company, and my family and I have lost a dear friend. Carroll Shelby is one of the most famous names in performance car history, and he's been in everything he did successfully. Whether helping Ford Racing, which dominate 1960 or build some of the most famous Mustangs, his enthusiasm and passion for big cars more than six decades, really inspired all who worked with him. He was a great innovator, whose legend at Ford will never be forgotten. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends.

It legitimizes the American cars on the race tracks around the world ... He was iconic (with), that black cowboy hat. The man in the black hat was always the spoiler ... He ran a lot of tradition and was a bit of rebel.

Carroll was a personal friend of mine, to my late mother and his brother and a good friend of Barrett-Jackson President Steve Davis. In fact, so much he means to me, I have my only daughter, Shelby, behind him. He was bigger than life, responsible for some of the most legendary cars including the Cobra, the GT40, the Shelby Mustang and Viper. His car command some of the highest prices on our auction block, and for good reason, because if you are a Shelby, you know you are a piece of automotive history, to buy property. His death is a real loss for us all, both at Barrett-Jackson and the industry as a whole. He was an icon, I was proud to call a friend.

She continued: "In this case, it would have been useful for him, Malia and Sasha explained that while her friends parents are undoubtedly good people, that is no reason for thousands of years to think about marriage or change could be as large as their friends - - that is.. we know that children generally do better to grow up in a mother / father at home, ideally, help fathers, the children's 'world view'.

One of the first things you learn as a parent is that everyone has an opinion about your parenting skills. There is always another parent, friend, a pediatrician or a family member to tell you how or what their parents do not want to do it right, as a parent. Notice to parents is never a shortage.

There is always someone ready to tell you how to do and now there are a lot of people say all who listen, as it should to be made​​.

Why? As TIME Magazine is a woman breastfeeding her three year old on the cover.
The picture is a story about a parenting philosophy called Attachment Parenting. The parents are focused on the formation of a strong emotional bond with their children as they grow, using techniques such as co-sleeping, baby wearing and comprehensive care. The public is in an uproar because the image has been released. This is good for AP, because it is the awareness of this form of child care will be better.

A one-two earthquakes shook the nerves of San Francisco Bay on Monday, and scientists say the tremors of magnitude 3.5 and 4.0 below the city of El Cerrito were reminders of the dangers in a region seismic known risk.

kowloon walled city

kowloon walled city



An article in the New York Times asking how many people could keep notes of Manhattan "Manhattan package as strong as Kowloon Walled City, river to river, get stuck on average 65 million people."

I think in many ways is more illuminating to think about less extreme scenarios. Think of New Jersey, which is not really a farm full. It contains, however, five times more people per square mile as California. In other words, if the Golden State were as close as New Jersey an average of over 188 million people. And California is a fine place to live. Thanks to its mild climate, Californians use very little energy for heating and cooling of offices compared to most Americans. According to 2005 data, the average California had half the footprint of the average American about this. And yet, a Californian who was in New Jersey, the level of population density would be even lower per capita CO2 emissions, as many cars would travel shorter distances and a greater proportion of the population would be walking / cycling / transit by the time. And although this of course would be a dramatic transformation, my point is that unlike Manhattan interpretation of Kowloon Walled City is not a bad idea. New Jersey is a strange neighborhood, as an accident of history. New Jersey is not particularly intense! In fact, small cities (Trenton, Newark, Camden) are all well below the peaks of its population history.

The agreement, which met behind closed doors in recent weeks, was a key step towards obtaining a plan to state legislators and other community leaders for approval.

However, the plan is far from reality.

"All politicians have to make a difficult decision," said Minneapolis Mayor RT Rybak, a reinforcement of the stadium, which now must convince the most skeptical directors of sales tax revenue dedicated to this effort.

It is also found between the Vikings and a new stage of 201 state legislators, all for reelection later this year and many of them are not convinced that $ 737 million in public funds should be contributed to the plan.

"I can not way for me to vote for to see," said Senator Jeff Hayden, a Democrat from Minneapolis. "My constituents have weighed if you do not want public financing of private stadiums."

Supporters of the proposal said it would not only the Vikings, but the benefit of Minnesota State. Under the agreement, the team will collect all revenue generated by the football stadium there. However, the stadium would be owned by a new public entity that maintains all the other benefits of any other sporting event to rock concerts and the like.

"American Idol" judge and sometimes Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler has survived drugs, alcohol and falls off the stage, but singing "The Star-Spangled Banner" may have been too much.

The singer performed the National Anthem before the Patriots, Ravens playoff game in the NFL in Foxboro, Massachusetts, on Sunday, and the different accounts that shattered into pieces. (Other fans like Tyler was only his stylized interpretation of the song you do). In addition to their usual shouts, Tyler gave the text is about to sing "as bomb explodes in the air" rather than the desired "bombs bursting in air."

While the show was greeted with applause from the stands, the TV audience had a different reaction. Fox News, Greg Gutfeld Twitter: "I went out of his misery put a raccoon -. I realized that my neighbor was watching Steven Tyler sings the hymn"

Chip Kelly is doing everything fast, so probably not a surprise that only lasted a few hours for your ideas on the major advances in the NFL. But on the heels of the latest Sunday night waiting for the confirmation of his departure from Oregon, it seems that even the most famous college football lead foot is susceptible to an attack of cold feet.

As of Monday morning, Kelly has apparently decided to stick with the program he built into a coherent national competitor in Eugene, at least temporarily, the visions of a time bomb in the process of the NCAA harmless. The fit was not good: Kelly is a career college coach with only three years as head coach under his belt, just five years away from the offensive coordinator for New Hampshire. Wildlife production has been honed and refined over the last ten years can not be translated to the next level, especially in a team with a quarterback starting 250 pounds, which is a major threat to run. Kelly is a young man (48 November), but at this point in his career, moving to the next level would be primarily an exercise in ego, waiting to punch in the face of the whole world into two or three years.
