DeMatha junior forward Jerami Grant showed Monday night why he is considered one of the Washington area’s top high school basketball prospects in the class of 2012. Grant showed some touch with his shooting range and asserted himself at both ends of the court. He finished with a career high 17 points as the fourth ranked Stags beat fifth ranked Gonzaga, 51 48, to win the Washington Catholic Athletic Conference title..
I was helping out with last year biathalon and got assigned to clip the tracking chip things onto people legs, so I put on my knee caps since kneeling on jagged ice and/or slush kind of sucks.

So of course, a key theme in the new Pixar sequel is how Bob Parr (voiced by Craig T. Nelson), when not suiting up as Mr. Incredible, is a dad left unshaven and spent by the domestic trials of raising three kids of his own while wife Helen (Holly Hunter) fights solo as Elastigirl..
The United States still maintains the Jackson Vanik Amendment, adopted in 1974 denying favorable trade status to Russia, citing its restrictions on the free emigration of Jews from the Soviet Union. The law, a relic of the Cold War, has no practical effect but is a serious irritant in relations between the two countries. And as a practical matter, if Jackson Vanik remains in force, Russia would simply not apply WTO rules to the United States, perpetuating trade discrimination against American companies.
The threat to unit cohesion should require no elaboration. But let’s leave that obvious point to pedants and cross into enemy territory where somebody’s 18 year old daughter has been captured. No one wants to imagine a son in these circumstances either, obviously, but women face special tortures.
