Even in the final game of Ross career, Ortiz was tangentially relevant. Cubs outfielder Jason Heyward gave a rain delay speech during Game 7 of the World Series, a reminder for Ross of Ortiz dugout speech in Game 4 of the 2013 World Series.

Here Ross on that and a lot more, with paraphrased questions from the Herald:

“For me, it was more about the opportunities and the doors that opened for me after my playing career. It something I enjoyed, the little bit I did it. My time when I was in Boston, I did some stuff for them . I enjoyed it while I was there but I wanted to see what (the opportunities) looked like after I was done playing, and talked to a couple of the networks and just came to ESPN (who) really stepped up, and I excited man.

“It kind of cool if you get to go to work for this kind of prestigious company, and they want you and they put your name on that huge logo that is ESPN. . I got a lot to learn. I feel like I the rookie again. I been the veteran for a while, and now I back to a rookie.”

Do you see this as a second career? Does it help you scratch the itch to come back and play?

“I don know. I think that what I want to see. That what I hoping for. I think that something, that that why I doing this, and seeing what avenue (there is). Everybody talks about, be good at this, I be good at that. Well, I like to get my foot in the waters of a lot of different things, and see what I enjoy, see what my heart loves to do.

“(I be) in the baseball realm as well. . I be learning with the Cubs and being a part of that. I think this helps me. I been so busy, that I haven really had that itch to get back or to compete. I know once spring training starts, I sure that feeling will come around. But this is something that, so far I been so busy and this is an opportunity I been looking forward to. it allows me to, one, travel around and two, still kind of live a similar life of kind of just being connected with the game.”

When you look back, where do the Red Sox fit in your baseball identity? Are you more of a Cub?

“I don know, I never looked at that. That a good question. You know, I feel like I finished the thing with the Cubs, and the way it went off, and being carried off the field by my teammates and taking, helping be a part of an organization that (hadn won in) 108 years kind of like the team in Boston it something that special to me, and it probably the, I guess, the logo my heart wears.

“But I feel like they so connected, because I learned what winning looked like, I learned from guys like Dustin Pedroia and David Ortiz and that organization at how they put winning first and put the players first. And how, what a true winning organization looks like.

“So I took a lot of the mentoring things I used in my time with the Cubs, all (of that) came from either Atlanta or Boston. . It hard to say I feel one or the other. This is what freshest on my mind. The city of Chicago embraced me like no other city I played for, so that great and I still going to be working kind of behind the scenes a little bit with Chicago and learning some stuff from (the) Hall of Famer that going to be, (team president) Theo Epstein. So, trying to learn from those guys and I sure they tell you the same thing, about it all related. It interconnected because the lessons you learn you carry to the next place.”

What the Cubs gig?

“It a special assistant thing. . Really it just an ability for me to learn. It really, I don think I be making a whole lot of decisions or I don know how much my input will be. But really, I want to just see what behind the scenes. It actually will help my ESPN career and see what these guys (do) and how they talk. What important to them and putting together a team and free agency and how all that works. I feel like those guys are super important to our relationships are super important to one another, and I kind of want to learn from them. I the rookie in that room, too. Trying to again put my foot in every little bit of water I can.”

You were always known in the baseball world, but after the 2013 World Series and pairing up with Jon Lester, it seems like you ascended to a different level of notoriety. Was Boston the springboard?

“It crazy. Yeah, I mean for sure. It took off, and for me, my career really turned around in Atlanta, where I backed up Brian (McCann) and was a a part of that culture and Bobby Cox, I got to see and learn a lot from him, and that group there was a special group. And being with Eric Hinske, who had won two championships, one with Boston and one with the Yankees, talking to him and getting close to him, and then going to Boston and winning with that group there with Johnny (Gomes) and Nap (Mike Napoli), and seeing what that looks like and a winning team and how they talk and how they act, and the so called formula for winning with my time in Boston, and taking that to Chicago.

“Those guys embraced me with such a young group in Chicago, embraced me and listened to me and allowed me to, you know, just kind of impart a little bit of wisdom I had from being around winning. And obviously, Jon (Lester) carries a ton of weight when he speaks and Lack (John Lackey) coming over this year and being a part of that.

“It one of those things that, yeah, it has gotten crazy. I think that has to do with the 108. The 108 year thing, everybody on that team is famous. I guess even a back up catcher gets a little love.”

How did the White House visit with the Cubs compare to the one with the Red Sox?

“Man, this time, not to knock last time: last time we were in the middle of the season, we did it on an off day, felt rushed. I think he (President Barack Obama) was super busy, really I mean I don want to take away from his schedule, like you know, you could tell. It the President of the United States. He super busy. I mean, we had a good time. My favorite time of the last visit was the Walter Reed (Army Medical Center visit). That was really cool. The White House thing felt just a little rushed. This time, they only had four days left in office and they were kind of, they were packing up their offices, it was very very laid back. (Obama) was able to visit. Michelle (Obama) was there. She a Cubs fan. She never does the team (celebration) stuff, she said, so she hung out with us. He mentioned my name in his peech, that made my jaw drop.”

He didn mention you in 2013?

“No, I think he was more focused on Big Papi and the star players. (He said) I think me and him are going out on top. We were on the retirement tour, the year long retirement tour. A little bit funner for me. I think it had more to do with how he was about to be finished, he only had four days left. So he was a lot more relaxed and probably not as much on his plate.”

Did you technically file retirement papers?

“I did not. I did not. Somebody, I asked my agent that, if I need to do that, and he said you don have to do that. So I haven looked into it anymore. I don know what that means, but I definitely retired. I work out in my gym and everybody asking if i making a comeback and my line to em is, they pay a lot of money, you got to be always be ready. But I got I busier now than I was when I was playing.”

Did you get any offers this winter? Did people try to lure you back?

“No, no no no. No. No offers. I think everybody knew. One, I don know if anybody wanted me but I hope I made it clear that I was done. Yeah, it just, when you get carried off the field by your teammates after breaking a 108 year drought from winning, you can come back after that.”

You texted with David Ortiz during the playoffs. Any word from him?

“He was there (in the World Series) getting the Hank Aaron award, him and Kris Bryant. And he came up, he went over and gave a big hug, gave me a big hug and just said, man, you know, make sure these guys know how important this is. Lead this group. Just you know, that Jason Heyward moment in the weight room reminded me of Big Papi in the dugout, his speech. This is Big Papi all over again.

“I texted him here and there about different things, but nothing about baseball or playing. More about his charity event, something else he had going on where he was going to be where I might be at or something. But nothing other than that.”

Having done one session and looking at actual revenues, I decided to change the way we offer classes, including the fees we charged. I can recreate the wheel. I do one session, and then review how it works. The interesting thing about that? After the session was over, I didn really do a step back, big picture review of how the session worked. I had some ideas for new classes and packaging up the old ones, but I didn really do the business owner thing and look at the business. (Bad Dawn.)It took my being in a business retreat last week and presenting my ideas for the packages of classes I was going to offer, and one of my masterminders going, much are you charging for classes? That ridiculously too low. Do you really want to be seen as Wal Mart? though my first reaction was a so do not want to rethink all this, that statement hit me hard. No, of course I don want to be seen as Wal Mart. I do believe in get what you pay for and the perceived value of things. If these are such great classes, why are they dirt cheap? My time, and my instructors time is certainly valuable, and the classes are packed with information. This is high quality, silk shirt type of material. And while, in general, I very pleased with how the spring/summer session went, I never satisfied with good enough. I a maximizer, and I always want to make it ( being anything) the best it can be. Are we going to be Nordstrom? Maybe. At the very least, I like to be Chico (with their really awesome collection of accessories). I written before about how writing and publishing a book should be seen as a business. Well, what kind of business? Do YOU want to be the Wal Mart in your field? Would you rather be a Nordstrom? Or something in between, like a Chico (Remember the great accessories!)Of course, books sell at a specific price range. You not really going to sell your hardcover for $200. However, there are some places where a Wal Mart vs. If you self publish, you do not want someone to pick up your book and immediately know it been self published. That means spend the money on an editor, proofreader, book designer You don want your book to stand out as low quality among traditionally published books. I can pretty quickly (without even looking at the title page) tell whether a book been (badly) self published, from quality of printing, formatting, and editing. There nothing wrong with self publishing. You just have to determine if you want your book to look like the high quality books (in look and format) the traditional publishing houses put out. Again, I can tell if it a do it yourself website, or one that looks professional. If the only face you have to show to the world is your website, make it look like you a professional. Don let your sixteen year old nephew do the design. Look big and play big. Rethink that picture of you at the party with a martini glass in your hand (unless it part of your persona). Have high quality, professional pictures taken. Think about what you wearing, the background, what you holding. The picture file (more than likely a digital file in this day and age) needs to be high quality as well. The last thing you want is a grainy picture on the back of your book. If you don have a writing coach or writing group, get one. The last thing you want is to diminish the credibility you worked so hard to build by shoddy writing. This can include all sorts of things like query letters and book proposals. While the public doesn see your initial (or 500th) query letter or proposal, someone will. Whether an agent or a publishing house, come across as a professional, and not a be doing yourself a severe injustice if you don publish my book attitude.So take some time and think about it. Who are you in your world? If you writing a book, you want to be seen as an expert. Are you a Wal Mart expert or a Nordstrom expert? How does that affect your book? What do you need to put in place? Mind you, there are those of us who do shop at Wal Mart, and I can find some pretty darn good deals there, on occasion. But there are certain things I would never buy there my shoes, for example, if I want them to last.

uggs sale uk official And It’s On Your Property And It’s On Your Property

We usually ignore them and don’t even notice them, but they’re one of the most primitive lifeforms on Earth. They’re also good eatin’.

They are lichens, a form of algae with a fungus membrane to support the plant. But they don’t grow in water; they grow on trees and rocks and sometimes on the ground.

Some of the lichens you see in the wild could be hundreds if not thousands of years old. That’s why you shouldn’t pick or scrape lichens arbitrarily. In a survival situation, all bets are off, but if you’re not going to eat it, respect it and leave it alone.

Most lichens are benign, a few are toxic and only a couple have been identified as poisonous. This is not as severe as the mushroom world, where there are numerous varieties that are downright deadly, but you gotta know your lichens.

In fact, only two forms of lichen out of 20,000 varieties are defined as poisonous. One is called Vulpacida pinastri and the other is called Letharia vulpina. Their common names are the powdered sunshine lichen and the wolf lichen.

Both are colored yellow and as a general rule you should avoid lichens that are yellow or orange. The wolf lichen is greenish yellow and the powdered sunshine lichen is sulfur yellow. It’s the blue and green varieties that are typically safe to eat.

Before you dismiss lichens as some caveman survival food, you should know that ChefRen Redzepiof theNomarestaurant in Copenhagen has touted lichens as a critical part of his cuisine. He has been identified as the top chef in the world by numerous publications and culinary organizations, and he uses lichens regularly in many of his dishes.

But you might not agree if you simply start chewing one you’ve just picked off a tree. In return, the alga provides carbohydrates from photosynthesis to the fungus. Algae from some lichens grow independently of the fungus, but in lichen form, the algae can inhabit more challenging environments than when growing alone. Forest Service:

Wherever you live in the world you’ll probably encounter one of these types, if not all three. Northern latitudes tend to see more prolific lichen growth. That’s good news in a winter survival situation.

A raw lichen right off the tree or a rock is going to have the consistency of a rubber inner tube and taste highly acidic if not downright astringent. You have to soak them in water for hours, with frequent water changes. This will get rid of the natural acids that permeate the lichen.

A Japanese technique is to gently boil them with frequent water changes. This will result in a lichen that is quite gelatinous. In case you’re wondering, “gelatinous” means slimy, similar to the slime you see when you boil okra or cactus. It’s OK to eat it, but be prepared.

In a pure survival situation, you would soak the lichens in water with frequent water changes and eat them like potato chips. They’re going to be tough blue or green potato chips, but they’ll help to keep you alive.

In a more civilized environment, you can slice them and toss them in a pasta with olive oil, or add them to a soup or broth to thicken the soup. Even in a simple cup of chicken broth, lichens will add viscosity and body, making it sip more like a gravy than a watery broth.

In Scandinavia, lichens are often added to flour for bread making after they have been soaked in multiple water changes and the acid has been leached out.

A modern technique is to add bicarbonate of soda in a proportion of one teaspoon to a quart of water. This will also help neutralize the acids.

In Africa, lichens were used for jelly making with locally harvested fruits. It has the same qualities as gelatin and was also used by American pioneers prior to commercially made gelatin becoming available.

Regardless of the technique you chose to use, I would strongly recommend soaking the lichens in a bowl of vinegar for at least 30 minutes before you soak them in the water changes. Vinegar is a powerful antiseptic and will kill any germs on the lichen’s surface. That’s important because these organisms have potentially been exposed to elements for thousands of years. That gives them plenty of time to pick up some nasty microbes.

In a survival situation, you may only have water or at least boiling water to sanitize any lichen. In this instance, I would prefer lichens growing on a tree and preferably under a large, over hanging branch. No guarantees but it may have had less exposure to the elements in this kind of environment as opposed to lichens growing on rocks.

The nutritional value varies, depending on the species and the amount. Generally, lichens have some of the nutritional benefits of a well known form of algae called “spirulina.” It has vitamins like vitamin K and vitamin C, some carbohydrates and a fairly good calorie count based on the size.

Older, more mature trees tend to provide the most lichens. This is because it takes them so long to grow. Rocks and cliff faces also will provide lichens. On a canoe trip in Canada I remember seeing a large slab of granite on the shoreline covered in lichens like a patchwork quilt. Just make sure you stay away from the yellow and orange ones.

The best tool for lichen collecting is a knife. You have to cut it away from the rocks or trees. They come off simply, but most tree lichens will have some tree bark attached. The external tree bark of any tree is indigestible, so try to shave it away. I’ve sometimes used my thumbnail to do this.

However, winter presents some unique problems. The lichens are typically frozen. You may want to grab more bark from a tree and deal with it after you’ve soaked it. The same is true for rock lichens.

To preserve lichens for future use, sanitize them in vinegar for 30 minutes, do numerous soaks in water changes for a few hours, and then dry them in a food dehydrator. When it’s time to eat, rehydrate them in cold or gently boiling water.

There are two lichen recipes that I make from time to time:

Prepare the lichen as indicated previously in rinses of vinegar followed by rinses of water. Add water and salt to the pot and bring to a boil. Then slice the lichens and set aside. Add the pasta to the boiling water and cook until done. Drain the pasta and toss with the olive oil, parmesan cheese, lichens and top with parsley. Serve.

He took whatever jobs he could, eventually landing with the City of Victoria, which is how he found himself high in the metalwork, preparing the bridge for a new paint job.

There were no safety harnesses in those days. No hard hats, no masks, no cranes or scissor lifts to carry workers aloft. Just grab the blowtorch, clamber up top and start burning away the old paint.

Every so often, the bridge had to be raised to let ships pass. When that happened, an alarm would sound and the workers would make for a “safe platform” an immovable part of the span.

Sometimes, Reitsma’s location and the noise of the blowtorch would make it impossible to hear the warning, so someone would tug on a gas hose as a signal to come down.

But that didn’t happen on the day in question. Reitsma was working at the very top of the bridge when, without warning, it began to move. All he could do was hang on, hoping that it wouldn’t open fully.

No such luck. A really tall ship was passing through. The bridge went all the way up.

Reitsma found himself suspended in the air, held by nothing but a metal brace across his lower back. He dropped the still burning torch.

“The only thing I could do was press myself against the two sides, the plates.”

Heaven knows how long he was up there. Fifteen minutes? Twenty? Half an hour? “I cannot say how long it was, but it was a long time.”

What did he think of? Nothing. He was just trying to live though to this day he firmly believes he had unseen company: “Angels. I’m sure they helped me there. There was no other way I could survive.”

When the bridge was finally lowered, Reitsma scrambled down. “I said: ‘Why didn’t you call me?” No one had a good answer to that. “The foreman said: ‘You can go home.’ It was 4 o’clock anyway.”

Reitma’s colleagues were surprised when he showed up the next morning. “I’ve got to work,” he said with a shrug. “Got to put bread on the table.” They let him toil at ground level after that.

As far as he knows, the incident was never reported. No one even asked how he was. Reitsma moved on to another city job, laying pipe for the water department, then went to work for a Happy Valley Road chicken farm.

Eventually he struck out on his own, first as a carpenter, then a building contractor. Peter Reitsma and Son Construction remains a going concern, though it’s the son and grandson running the show now.

As the years passed, the experience on the bridge stayed with Reitsma. On construction sites, he didn’t like going on roofs or walking on floor joists. “Still, today, I stay down close to earth,” he says.

Reitsma lives in a Saanich house surrounded by his own artwork handcrafted furniture, beautifully rendered pencil sketches, landscape paintings, examples of traditional Hindeloopen decorative art from Friesland in the Netherlands.

Friesians are stubborn, he says. That helped him on the bridge, helped him get a toehold in Canada, helped him when the Germans invaded in the Second World War. When the city of Breda was evacuated, 14 year old Reitsma, carrying his possessions in a couple of pillow cases, came across dead Dutch soldiers on the road, was forced to dive into ditches when the German planes came. During the war he ducked the raids in which young Dutchmen were snatched up for forced labour in Germany.

Then came the day in April 1945 when, perched on a rooftop, he watched Canadian aircraft strafe German positions. Then came the Canadian soldiers in their unfamiliar uniforms, sharing their chocolate bars and cigarettes. Then came his own life in Canada, a good life though he could have done without that day atop what he still calls “my bridge.”

But as has often been the case this year, the Canucks new core (Nexus? Let call them The Nexus), decided to have a go of things and fight against the dying of the light.

Boeser, Horvat, Baertschi and Stecher had themselves a pretty great game.

Vanek and Edler, the wise leaders for this young group, also played solid.

If you ever wanted a sign of the times, look at the Sedins ice time:

Daniel Sedin: 10:20

Henrik Sedin: 13:18

Boeser and Horvat? 18+ minutes.

At one point it felt like Travis Green was just closing his eyes and covering his ears and shouting Boeser back out there!

as Brock was deployed throughout the lines.

With Horvat out for so long, sometimes it easy to forget the kind of impact he can have on a game, but it was hard to forget it tonight.

At this rate Horvat and Boeser will appear on Season 3 of Riverdale, competing for the hearts and captaincy of the Riverdale Bulldogs.

The crowd was alive as it ever been, sans Larscheiders, in the third period when the Canucks pulled within one goal.

For an arena that can get so silent all you left with is your own inner dialogue of sadness, it was refreshing to see some energy in Rogers Arena.

So yeah.

Maybe not a defining moment for The Nexus.

But it was another brick in the path to a life without the Sedins.

A path that at least shows there might be some excitement somewhere down the line.


Post game comments by Boeser and Horvat, not the Sedins.


It was no surprise to see Tampa Bay jump to a quick start,

cheap uggs Anchorage man sentenced for homeless camp killing

A preliminary investigation found that McCracken “used physical force to kill Ragan,” according to police. He was initially held on one count each of murder and manslaughter, and taken to the Anchorage jail, with initial bail set at $250,000 cash and $10,000 cash performance, plus a third party custodian.

Though prosecutors presented both charges, the Anchorage Grand Jury later voted to only charge McCracken with manslaughter and not murder.

A sister of Ragan said that Ragan had chosen to live in Anchorage so that she could be near her fiance, Charles Blair, who was incarcerated at the time.

“She was perfect in my eyes,” Blair said. “She didn’t care who you were. She would stop and want to pray for you. I used to get mad at that.

“We’d go to the grocery store, and she’d see someone on the street and start giving away the groceries we just bought,” he said. “She’d give you the shirt off her back.”

Since the 1940s research into human behaviour has suggested that people are motivated by a number of different needs, at work and in their personal life. Recognising and satisfying these needs will help you to get the best from people.

Several motivation theories work on the assumption that given the chance and the right stimuli, people work well and positively. As a manager, be aware of what these stimuli or “motivational forces” are. Theorist Abraham Maslow grouped them into five areas. The first is physiological needs, and these are followed by further needs, classed as “safety”, “social””, “esteem” and “self actualisation”. According to Maslow, the needs are tackled in order: as you draw near to satisfying one, the priority of the next one becomes higher. Also, once a need has been satisfied, it is no longer a stimulus.

Abraham Maslow believed that satisfying just physiological and safety needs is not enough to motivate a person fully. Once these needs have been appeased, there are others waiting to take their place. The Maslow hierarchy can be applied to every aspect of life and the more ambitious and satisfied the personality, the greater the potential contribution to the organisation. When designing jobs, working conditions, and organisational structures, bear in mind the full range of needs in the Maslow hierarchy. Doing this will cost no more, but it will undoubtedly generate higher psychological and economic rewards all round. Individuals acting as part of a group have needs that differ from those of the group. However, it is important for individuals to feel they belong. Find a way to balance the needs of the group with those of individuals. For example, tell staff that if the group meets its major objectives, you may be able to satisfy individual requirements. Do not, of course, promise what you cannot deliver.

Motivation Outside the Workforce:

One of the areas in which individuals tend to satisfy their motivational needs outside work is sports activities. It is interesting to note the effort that people put into such endeavours, for which they are unlikely to gain material reward. Try to motivate your staff to apply as much effort in the workplace as they would in a team sports event by making work as much fun as possible. A shrewd motivational strategy is to encourage your staff to take up team activities outside the workplace in order to improve their teamwork skills.

Satisfying Basic Needs:

Psychologist Frederick Herzberg developed a “two factor” theory of motivation based on “motivators” and “hygiene factors”. Hygiene factors basic human needs at work do not motivate but failure to meet them causes dissatisfaction. These factors can be as seemingly trivial as parking space or as vital as sufficient holiday time, but the most important hygiene factor is finance. A manager should try to fulfil staff members’ financial needs. People require certain pay levels to meet their needs, and slow income progression and ineffective incentives quickly demotivated. Fear about lack of security in a job also greatly demotivates staff.

Points to Remember:

The effects of getting hygiene factors right are only temporary

The results of getting hygiene factors wrong can cause long lasting problems

The more choice people can exercise over both hygiene factors and motivators, the better motivated they will be

Job insecurity undermines motivation at all levels

Recognising good work is as important as rewarding itThe second of Herzberg’s two factors is a set of “motivators” that actually drive people to achieve. These are what a manager should aim to provide in order to maintain a satisfied workforce. How much a person enjoys achievement depends purely on its recognition. The ability to achieve, in turn, rests on having an enjoyable job and responsibility. The greater that responsibility, the more the individual can feel the satisfaction of advancement. Motivators are built around obtaining growth and “self actualisation” from tasks. It is one of the most powerful motivators and a great source of satisfaction.

Recognition: The acknowledgment of achievements by senior staff members is motivational because it helps to enhance self esteem. For many staff members, recognition may be viewed as a reward in itself.

Job Interest: A job that provides positive, satisfying pleasure to individuals and groups will be a greater motivational force than a job that does not sustain interest. As far as possible, responsibilities should be matched to individuals’ interests.

Advancement: Promotion, progress and rising rewards for achievement are important here. Possibly the main motivator, however, is the feeling that advancement is possible. Be honest about promotion prospects and the likely timescale involved.
