IMHO, I think you should run as fast as you can, and I'm a woman. There is no excuse or reasoning that would allow for you to stay in a relationship with a woman that threatened you with false domestic violence charges. Please think with that head on your shoulders for a moment and think about this. You two are not married yet. She is putting her best  foot forward right now. Her issues are not going to go away once you put that wedding ring on her hand. If anything, they will be accentuated. Please don't go back. This woman will destroy everything you worked for and has the potential to turn you into a person that even you won't recognize.

No wonder she's your ex. Pineapple and ham on a pizza is inexcusable and definite grounds for divorce unless you knew she liked her pizza that way before you took your vows. Then it's on you for ignoring this major, game changing problem.

When mentioning his injuries you left out his bed bug bites. How hilarious is that!!

I didn't mean to imply they would get hired, or a guaranteed interview because of all the layers involved in hiring today. But I do know that if there is an application from a fellow alumni, and there is an alumni involved in the hiring process, most will go to bat for that person to at least be considered. Again, it is the applicant that has to sell himself in the end. Nobody is going to hire someone if the applicant does not fit their business model or isn't qualified for the position, but it can open a door that wouldn't otherwise be there.

How many alumni are in positions to hire? If you don't think that influences at least getting a foot in the door, than you are delusional. Although I am not in that position, I have plenty of friends that are and they all would love to get other alumni at least a shot. That's all a prospective applicant can ask for. It is up to them to sell themselves. Once a  person gets a job, it is up to them to put in place an impressive resume. Where you went to school becomes less important. The only thing a big degree gets you is the initial foot in the door. After that, you have to prove yourself. It may take you a little longer to reach your goals, but if you are good at what you do, the opportunities to advance will be there.

If his tweet is alluding to him coming back to play football, I'm sure Urban has given him the okay since this has been an ongoing process of Armani getting healthy. If so, Meyer must have some plans to get him back on the field if he is cleared. Other than that, I agree it can be some sort of coaching or administrative position.

Are you taking a shower with it on? Make sure you dry your wrist area real good, even after a work out. That is a known problem with them.

I have a Fitbit HR that measures my heart rate. The biggest downfall to it is the only activities it records with any accuracy is walking and running. It does okay on a treadmill. Don't expect a precise reading on your mileage, though. Most of the people I know feel it is off, but none of t hem, including me, have the GPS in theirs. There are a lot of good apps out there that can fill in the gaps. I use Endomondo. It does a pretty good job for bike riding, yoga, and other activities. You can also synch it to your Fitbit.  if you have friends that have the Fitbit, you can form a challenge group and it will record all group's steps. At the end of the week, it will declare the winner.  It's useful because of the motivational factor. I have been hearing great things about the new Microsoft Band 2 am I'm thinking of making the jump. My only hesitation is it looks a bit bulky.

Wasn't Carlos Hyde one? Also Michael Thomas and Cardale Jones were room mates at Fork Union. I don't know the exact number, but I bet at least 1 a year.

Edit. I agree that since Urban has been here we haven't signed that many. Didn't realize that until some posted it

When I was 18 I started working for Generous General Motors. I hated it. Got my first check and never hated working there again. 32 years later, I retired from there. Since then I started my own business. I wish I could get fired at times, but it also pays pretty good.
