Apr 27th 2011 6:44PM My husband was a professional dancer and teacher. He ruined his back by carrying around overweight women. Kirstie doesn't look good doing these wonderful dances and it is not fun to see the suffering going on with her and her partner. There are other ways to lose weight. But, if she truly wants to do it by dancing, fine, she can afford dance lessons. Let her go for it. I love the program when it adheres to its beginning premise - dancing with the stars. Many of the amateur dancers are not stars, such as the Palin daughter, whose only claim to fame is her glory hound mother. Also, Len's cruelty is not at all entertaining. Please have him knock it off.
Apr 4th 2011 5:32PM Because of having torn both shoulder rotator cuffs, I cannot wear the typical, back closing bra. However, I cannot find front closing bras, especially well-shaped ones. Got any suggestions?
Feb 20th 2011 2:19PM Love your ideas and the photos. Thanks for them.....
Oct 1st 2010 11:55PM These contestants all begin the contest at different levels of dancing ability in the first place. Their choreography is designed by the professional partner. Sometimes, as in the case with Michael Bolton, the idea behind the choreaography is just really bad. That was not his fault. Perhaps they should not begin throwing people off the show immediately. They could wait a couple of weeks at least to see how professional instruction can cause them to improve. I would enjoy that more than what I saw this week.
Aug 2nd 2010 4:50PM Having been an executive recruiter for many years, I know that the reason for preliminarily sending in a resume is because you haven't been able to acquire an interview. That is the goal of any contact with a hiring authority - getting a face-to-face interview. Only then are you potentially being considered for the open position. Resumes are brought with you to that interview and are only presented when requested. If resumes got job offers, life would really be much easier - but, it is not. Unless you have had numerous pertinent previous jobs, which is a potential negative to the hiring authority, the resume should be on one page - two at most. It should be clear, to the point and geared toward the position being applied for. Ideally, it should be printed on blue paper, with print large enough to be easily read.
When you go for the face-to-face interview, dress professionally - ideally, in a navy blue suit, white shirt, red tie or scarf for women. Upon meeting the interviewer, you extend your hand for a professional handshake first. Smile and show your ability to be comfortable with higher authority.
Be ready to discuss your experience, your reason for applying for this position, your reason for wanting to work for this company and this person. You should have done your "homework" about the company, the position, the management, the company philosophy and goals, etc. You should find a way to work this into your interview. Be a "professional"! Be the one they want!
Apr 30th 2010 8:56AM NCIS is a perfect TV show and I have always been taught that you don't mess with perfection. The synergy between the actors, and therefore, the characters is so perfect that it's like watching real life unfold each week. I wonder how much the execs are earning each episode?? I doubt if they would close the whole show down for a simple salary dispute! Pleasure is what the show gives us. Money is what we must pay them for the pleasure we receive. Please don't let greed, on either side, be the end of this perfect show. They are worth whatever they are asking for. Pay it! Keep "our show" going!
Mar 28th 2010 12:29AM It's time that we once again begin to behave as Americans and not only as partisan politicians. Our country needs our help, not our childish criticism of every thing our president does. Pull together, that's how our "boat will cross the finish line". Until the next election, at which time you can express your preference, behave like a unified country. That's what our neighbors abroad need to see.
Mar 21st 2010 7:25PM Conan O'Brien was never qualified to host that show. He may be an intellectual genius but he's just not really a funny performer or host. He's silly and goofy, but not funny enough for that show. He doesn't bring out the best in guests. He just continually competes by being goofy. I never enjoyed that show while he was on. He really had some nerve pushing NBC into replacing the successful Jay Leno's "Tonight Show" with him. I don't care what his contract said. The man is not a real "Headliner". Good riddance!
Sep 29th 2009 12:01PM I hurt my left hip while dancing about a month and a half ago. I have had a physical therapist treat me with Ultrasound and Electrical Stimulation. To that I have added homeopathic remedies for pain and topical cream also for pain. I still have the pain and restriction of movement. I am considering Acupuncture now.
Jul 16th 2009 6:42PM My beautiful little Cavalier Prince Charles Spaniel consistently sleeps on the top of my head. My daughter's dog of the same breed does the same thing. It must be a breed habit. It is very comforting to have a live being so close to you, I think.
