Yes, I told her to "own" it, and she really nails it. But she is an excellent free flight paraglider pilot also! That really helps for good feel for the wing.

Everyone should watch this video until they understand it. This is important stuff that you should know about YOU!
Are we born to be optimistic, rather than realistic? Tali Sharot shares new research that suggests our brains are wired to look on the bright side — and how that can be both dangerous and beneficial.

So, Today I was reminded how much fun I had while working in Canada, and with Canadians.  It's Feb 3rd, today, and oddly, I received a Christmas card, which although it was two to three months late, was in fact, right on time.  Ima Van Den Heuvel (who is NOT on Google+) coordinated a Christmas card, which just about everybody signed, and sent it on it's way.  It took until today to navigate its way into the US, cross the country to California, hop the slow boat (or airplane) to Korea, and finally find me.  Happy day!  

+Jim Murphy, please give my thanks to everyone for brightening my day!  You can't image how much I appreciate it!  And please, if you can find the time, go upstairs and hug Ima for me.  She is a sweetheart for putting this thing together!

One never knows how he did in an assignment until after he has left, and the people there are free to say and do as they please.  I'm proud of everybody that I worked with, and for, there; and am happy to know that they are at least a little bit fond of me!

Everyone who knows what that means! Fox fired these reporters; the Government didn't arrest them.

Come to think of it, if the gov didn't arrest them, then it must not have been illegal, so they must be lying...
4th figure syllogism? Can't remember. Rhetoric class was so long ago...

While serving with First Infantry Division, LTC Dooley deployed to Kosovo as a part of KFOR1B, and to Iraq as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom II.

His next tour was as the Chief Communications Officer for the Defense Threat Reduction Agency's Operations Center, Fort Belvoir, Virginia, followed by a posting to Canberra, Australia where he completed the Command and General Staff College.

Upon completion of the course, he was assigned as the Brigade Signal Officer for the 173rd Airborne Brigade Combat Team, Vicenza, Italy.

Then, on Exchange, he served with the Defense Information Sytems Agency (DISA), with duty in Ottawa, Ontario supporting DND in the ADM(IM), DGIMO, D STRAT CS as the JSCSS Section Head (formerly DIMTPS 3).
