    We are all unique. Yes, even you. Your mom was right!And you’re here because questions about your body type and genetics:What body type am I?How does it affect my training and diet?I have bad genetics, how screwed am I?I am a [body type]. Does that mean I shouldn’t do [activity]?We all have different bodies, genetics,reactions from certain foods, strengths, and weaknesses, and thus we each have different activities and behaviors that we’re predisposed to be good at (or struggle with!).The standard way of thinking tells us that we have three main “body types”: EndomorphEctomorphMesomorph (Don’t worry we’ll get into each...

    For Lulu Flores, it still hurts. “I really feel for her,” Flores said as her eyes welled. “She did not let anybody down. I felt like we let her down.” On Nov. 8, 2016, Donald Trump was elected president of the United States. His opponent, Hillary Clinton, had been considered the favorite in the race. Clinton won the popular vote, but Trump bested her in the Electoral College. Clinton — who met with hundreds of supporters and readers at BookPeople on Friday to sign copies of her book, “What Happened,” about the 2016 campaign — seems to have moved on....

    Finally, the American people have a politician who dosen’t care what party your in, but does care whether the job one fills for the people in government is being used with integrity and for the purpose of keeping the people and US on the motto most people believe in. “Justice for All” That hasn’t been the case in the before 2011, and Trey Gowdy moving to the Oversight Committee. A change that has opened the doors to corruption greater than all the US wars put together. Acts that many would call treason have been allowed to go through and pass...

    This week Rep. Steve Cohen (D-TN) introduced Articles of Impeachment against President Donald Trump, saying that “this usurper must be held accountable for his high crimes and misdemeanors before he drags the country into the hellish tyranny he has designed for America.” The list of offenses includes… “On election night in 2016, rather than gracefully and rightly conceding to the winner of the popular vote, Donald Trump exploited a the loophole of the Electoral College to unfairly declare himself president,” Cohen charged. “Millions were summarily disenfranchised. Women and minorities were especially hard hit.” “He continues to steadfastly refuse to release...

    REDMOND, Ore. - A Salem-based gun manufacturer called Radian Weapons is relocating to Redmond. It makes rifle accessories and AR-15s that are sold all over the world. The company is moving its entire production facility and headquarters to Redmond. For the past six months, Radian Weapons has been working with Redmond city officials to find a building. They settled on the High Desert Industrial Park, a lease-to-own building at 875 NE Kingwood Avenue. Redmond Economic Development Senior Director Jon Stark said Central Oregon was attractive to the company, because it is largely accepting of the gun industry. "Redmond's pretty conservative,...

    LaVar Ball, patriarch of the famed basketball family, has denied that President Donald Trump helped his son, UCLA freshman basketballer LiAngelo Ball, get out of potential shoplifting charges in China. Speaking to ESPN, LaVar Ball said “everyone” wanted to make it seem like Trump helped the family, and noted that people try to “make a big deal out of nothing.” Ball’s basketball family has a reality show, Ball in the Family, that airs on Facebook, and his brash style is regularly parodied by Kenan Thompson on Saturday Night Live. The family includes Los Angeles Lakers point guard Lonzo Ball; UCLA...

    Semi-News/Semi-Satire ^ | 19 Nov 2017 | John Semmens
    A lawyer representing Sen. Diane Feinstein (Calif)–the top Democrat on the Senate Judiciary Committee–requested the opportunity to meet privately with former FBI informant, William Campbell. Campbell helped the FBI chronicle bribery, kickbacks and money laundering connected to the Uranium One scandal. Victoria Toensing, Campbell’s attorney, agreed to meet, but questioned the time and location suggested by Feinstein’s lawyer, saying that “a midnight meeting at Fort Marcy Park strikes me as unusually inconvenient, probably unwise, and potentially dangerous.” Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa), chairman of the Judiciary Committee, called Feinstein’s request “premature. Mr. Campbell will be testifying before the entire Committee. Every...

    Maxine Waters loves to talk about millennials, and she’s apparently adopted some of their traits, too. The California congresswoman made an appearance on Bloomberg TV on Thursday and her definition of “high crimes and misdemeanors” — the standard for impeaching a president of the United States — appears to be lowering. When asked what she hopes to achieve with her frequent “Impeach 45” chants around the country, Waters responded, “I have learned over the years that I’ve been in this business that there a few people who are willing to speak truth to power and to talk about what really...

    On the same day that GQ—sometimes known as Genuflecting Quarterbacks—named Colin Kaepernick as its “Citizen of the Year,” several mainstream media outlets—including Christian websites—reported that some Christian players in the NFL who support Kaepernick’s protest of “systemic oppression and…police brutality toward black people” are frustrated at the criticism directed at Mr. Kaepernick. They are especially frustrated that the out-of-work quarterback isn’t getting more support from the Christian community within the NFL. ... What if, while standing among the crowds of urban youth—where he so often finds himself—instead of talking about the myth of “systemic oppression and police brutality,” Mr. Kaepernick...

    Carrying in Church Since the Sutherland Springs tragedy, Texans with a handgun license are asking for reassurance, "Can licensees carry in a church?" The easy answer is YES. State law does not prohibit you and has not since 1997, however your church might! The Back Story In 1995 when CHL law finally passed, the answer to the Church Question was NO. Initially churches were a prohibited location. Then in 1997, when the language to Penal Code 30.06 passed creating the sign familiar to licensees, one line was added to PC 46.035. The addition of that one line (i) treats churches...

    Debt-ridden Millennials just can’t handle real life. Hit with a never before seen amount of debt and facing a shifting and hollowing job market, it’s little wonder that a shocking number of Millennials say they are having a crisis at their current point in life when they are supposed to be finding out who they are and what their life is all about. A LinkedIn survey of 2,000 Millennials shared by Moneyish revealed that 72% of young professionals aged 25 to 33 confessed to being in a quarter-life crisis, or a period of self-doubt and insecurity that leads them to...

    This holiday season makes for the perfect time to Count Your Blessings. Best blessing of Thanksgiving 2017 to count first: Hillary Clinton never made it as president. The caterwauling of that stunning loss continues over a year later. But Clinton, who acts as if she really won the presidency, is now down to carping at the voting world from the none-too-stable Clinton Foundation, or whatever is left of it.

    Today is the anniversary of the birth of James A(bram) Garfield (1831-1881), 20th President of these United States, in Moreland Hills, Ohio.

In 1862 he was elected to the U.S. House of Representatives and served in that body until 1880, after 1876 as Republican Leader of the House....

    Billy J. Williams, the Acting US Attorney in Oregon, named by the Obama Administration (Attorney General Loretta Lynch) in 2015, is now President Trump's nominee for that post. In a statement, the White House said that Williams and the other three US Attorney nominees in other parts of the country shared Trump's vision for "Making America Safe Again". Williams prosecuted protestors involved in the Oregon Standoff including the seven "leaders" found not guilty in October of 2016 and then prosecuted other protesters adding misdemeanor charges onto felonies and using a jury consultant..... The two Democrats who represent Oregon in the...

    Mayfield has to go to work on class. Saw the refusal to shake hands with him IN FRONT OF 2 KIDS! Let's go there for a minute. 3 black CO-CAPTAINS decide there's no room for sportsmanship. It's like NFL players deciding to not respect the flag. Protocol is just not in their DNA. Media makes Mayfield the SOLE issue. I'm glad they got the crap kicked out of them. As for Mayfield he will win the Heisman. Reminds me of Trump.
  • TAKEDOWN! Fan Confronts Muslim Athlete Who Shot Hoops During National Anthem

    Jim Howard, of Garden City, Kansas is a red-blooded, American patriot and a faithful supporter of the athletic program at the local community college. For 32 years he’s volunteered with the booster club – keeping scorebooks, holding fundraisers, running the chain gang for football – and even providing a place for players to have a Thanksgiving meal. He was in the stands on Nov. 1 for the season-opener of the Garden City Broncbusters basketball team. And when the announcer asked everyone to stand for the national anthem, he dutifully joined the crowd and stood at attention. That’s when he noticed...
