Good night sleep, was really tired by day's end yesterday. Not great sleep the night b4, and a long day. Was just wiped. Couldn't even sneak in a bike ride! Will get one today. Feel good, Creatine is at 1.0, PH is at 8, so the numbers look good. I'll get my weekly CBC summary at the end, I feel fine. Still expecting to be back here about 6-7 days out for neutropenia, but without the hickman and any infection that may have brought on, I'm not sure if I'll need antibiotics, ect. The neutropenia cold just have me here for low counts, get some blood and platelets, and no infection - just being wary of getting an infection (with my usual WBC's of 200 at that point). We'll see....
Good day of work scheduled, and hopefully a bike ride - rather - will be a bike ride!
Got on the bike, good ride - tried out the new heart monitor using the interval function. Pretty cool - makes you do a warm up, do a predetermined interval level - where you get your heart rate to a level for 5 minutes (you set the level and time), and then you recover (i chose to recover to a heart rate), then 2 more intervals and recovery, then a cool down. Was about 45 minutes all together. Felt good. Plottted it on a graph (part of the software).193 comments Comments: Comment from: aveazzi [Member] buy moncler

chanel A second man charged federally in connection with a spate of smash-and-grab robberies at upscale shops in the Washington area admitted in an Alexandria court Thursday that he and others targeted stores as far away as Richmond and Pennsylvania, and law enforcement officials will have to spend months sorting out exactly how much loot they took.
chanel handbags for sale While pleading guilty to a federal robbery charge and a robbery-conspiracy charge, Walter Douglas , 34, of the District admitted that he was an organizer of the group, sometimes serving as a getaway driver and other times going into the stores himself. He acknowledged that the group, which included at least four others, took somewhere between $800,000 and $1.5 million in high-end jewelry, watches and handbags from the likes of the Tourneau and Michael Kors stores as well as Saks Fifth Avenue from April 2012 to April 2013.
chanel bags for sale Sam Del Brocco was stabbed to death at his South Florida home in 2010, police said.
chanel handbag outlet Two victims in Fairfax county were tricked into giving up large sums of cash, police said.
chanel bags outlet online Police say the victim has no fixed address, and no arrest has been made.
chanel bags outlet online Another man, 43-year-old Floyd Davis , also of the District, has pleaded guilty in connection with the robberies, which made news across the region because of where they happened and how they were executed. The group often struck during the daytime at some of the area’s most upscale shops, shattering display cases in front of employees and customers.
Douglas’s plea, though, revealed for the first time the broad geographic scope of the operation. In response to questions from U.S. District Court Judge Leonie M. Brinkema, Douglas, holding one hand behind his back, acknowledged that a Saks Fifth Avenue in Richmond and Nordstrom at King of Prussia Mall in Pennsylvania were among the stores the group hit.
Locally, Douglas admitted to being involved in robberies at the Michael Kors store at the Tysons II Galleria, the Chanel boutique at the Galleria’s Neiman Marcus store and Belleview Jewelers on Belle View Boulevard near Richmond Highway in Alexandria, among others.
He acknowledged smashing the glass case at the Tourneau store at the Fashion Centre at Pentagon City on March 19 and taking more than $503,000 in jewelry.
And he admitted to serving as the getaway driver for the robbery of the Cartier store on Wisconsin Avenue in Chevy Chase — a particularly notable role, given that a D.C. police officer who spotted the getaway car crashed while following it.
Although Douglas acknowledged as a part of his plea that the group of robbers included at least five people, he and Davis are the only ones to have been publicly charged so far.
Douglas is scheduled to be sentenced Nov. 8.

Since then, weâ€™ve opened a second location in Toronto and, in May, we opened in London. We chose London because itâ€™s such a dynamic market and we were excited about an opportunity to be in White Oaks, which is an iconic mall in this city and known to be the busiest shopping centre. Londoners know about the Pandora brand. Now we want them to know weâ€™re here at White Oaks.â€

cheap breitling watches Former England soccer captain David Beckham will release a picture book in October featuring images from his playing career in a deal with a UK publishing unit of French media company Lagardere.
Replica Breitling Watches Outlet Shop The ex-Manchester United and Real Madrid midfielder, who retired from football in May after a brief spell with French club Paris St Germain, is expected to release the book on Oct. 31 with Lagardere's UK-based Headline Publishing Group.
Replica Breitling Watch- AAA Grade Breitling Replicas Headline's non-fiction publishing director, Jonathan Taylor, bought the world rights in a deal with the 38-year-old's management company XIX Entertainment for a book the publisher said will be a personal celebration of his playing days.
breitling swiss replica "David Beckham is, without a doubt, the most universally recognised and popular sports person on the planet, and this gorgeous book will be a superb way for his millions of fans around the world to celebrate David's remarkable achievements within football," Taylor said in a statement.
breitling watches Beckham earned 115 caps for England, a record for an outfield player, and won the Champions League, six Premier League titles and two FA Cups with Manchester United.
He also won league titles with Real Madrid in Spain, LA Galaxy in the United States and PSG in France.
His new book is just one part of the post-retirement plans for Britain's richest sportsman, whose easy charm and image as a family man should ensure the Beckham brand continues to prosper.
Managed by the XIX Entertainment group which has British motor racing driver Lewis Hamilton and Wimbledon tennis champion Andy Murray on its books, Beckham has capitalised on his film-star looks and athlete's body to market underwear for Swedish fashion chain H&M and luxury watches for Swiss manufacturer Breitling.
He is married to former Spice Girl-turned-fashion designer Victoria Beckham, with whom he has four children.
Lagardere posted a 2.3 percent rise in first-quarter sales in May, driven by the publishing success of the "Fifty Shades" bestsellers and a biography of Sweden international soccer player, Zlatan Ibrahimovic.

watches When Tom Perez left the Navy in 2010 after 10 years of service, he thought his experience as a military police supervisor would easily translate into a job in law enforcement. That wasn't the case. After applying for more than 100 positions around the U.S., the 32-year-old gave up on that dream and started looking at franchises. When he applied for a Meineke Car Care Center in Pensacola, Fla., he was quickly accepted. With a 25 percent discount on the franchise fee for veterans, and 75 percent funding through the company, he was in much better shape financially than most franchisees, who still struggle to find credit in the commercial market.
copy watches But Perez knew that despite his advantages, his first year in operation would be tough. Slow sales or unforeseen circumstances could easily jeopardize his new business. So he signed up with Boost A Hero, a program sponsored by the franchise crowdfunding platform Sprigster that allows friends, family and appreciative strangers to donate cash to help veterans open franchises. His Sprigster campaign helped Perez raise almost $7,000 from 34 donors in the spring and summer of 2012. While the money was not make-or-break, it did give him the confidence to go ahead with the business.
fake watches "It definitely made me feel like other people were invested in my project," he says. "I still get e-mails from people who boosted me from out of state, and donors who live nearby come to the shop for just about everything that needs to be done to their cars."
top brand watches It's a nice story about how crowdfunding is coming to the franchise world's aid. It's also, so far, one of the only stories.
high quality replica watches Crowdfunding has made a big splash in the last few years as sites like Kickstarter and Indiegogo have helped entrepreneurs launch donut shops, produce albums and create smart watches; theoretically, it's a perfect vehicle for franchising. And the franchise community, still suffering from the never-ending credit crunch, is eager to embrace it, believing it could help reenergize unit sales. But the current generation of donation-based crowdfunding platforms doesn't mesh particularly well with the franchise model. Donors are interested in funding new products and creative or cutting-edge businesses, not in subsidizing sandwich shops and quick lubes. Also, the small amounts raised through crowdfunding--typically a few thousand dollars--are not enough to replace bank loans or other financing needed by aspiring franchisees.
all brand watches But equity-based crowdfunding--in which investors buy a slice of a small business--could be quite useful to franchisees. The JOBS Act, signed into law last spring, includes a provision that will make it legal for small businesses to solicit crowd-based investments of up to $1 million. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission is currently working out the details on how to implement the law, and the decisions it makes are critical: If the regulations are too burdensome, they could put the kibosh on crowdfunding for franchises before it even starts. If, however, the SEC's rules are reasonable, they could open up a whole new path to franchise ownership.
A Natrual Fit
"We certainly believe crowdfunding has tremendous potential for franchise finance specifically," says Mark Mohler, a Florida business lawyer and CEO of Sprigster, which is currently donation-based but could convert to equity crowdfunding once the SEC releases its rules. "It provides for the true democratization of private equity."
Daniel Gorfine, director of financial markets policy and legal counsel at the Milken Institute, a Santa Monica, Calif.-based think tank that investigates innovations in capital markets, has co-authored several reports on the JOBS Act and securities crowdfunding. "There are certain things that make crowdfunding and franchising a natural fit," he says. "Number one, the size of the investment from the franchisee is not so great that it would exceed the $1 million limit. Next, most franchisees aren't interested in seeking late-stage investments like some small businesses. Having tens or hundreds of shareholders sometimes scares away venture capital groups, but that doesn't really matter here.
"But the most important thing," he adds, "is that crowdfunding creates a natural clientele. If you start out with 100 or 1,000 local investors, it might be a nice base of customer support and people invested in your success. The investors can see the property and business, and that adds enhanced credibility to the investment."
Gorfine also believes crowdfunding could become a novel way for franchisors to screen candidates and assess demand for their products. "There could be a situation in which a franchisor does a prequalification contingent on a candidate being able to successfully raise money from crowdsourcing," he says. "A franchisor could get feedback about how desirable a particular franchise would be in a certain location. The local community could tell them if they want a coffee shop on this corner or not. They could tell a franchisee, 'If you raise a certain dollar amount or number of investors, we'll be able to do a transaction with you.'"
Jonathan Sandlund, who runs online research and advocacy platform TheCrowdCafe, contends that crowdfunding could be a major step forward for equal opportunity. "This has an enormous potential to bring access to capital to franchisees without networks of wealth," he says. "Banks are really pulling back, and right now if you need $50,000 or $150,000 to start a franchise, you have to be wealthy or be connected to wealthy friends and family to get it. This will put people on equal footing."
