best smartphone for you nike free run

finding the best smartphone for you

 

And yet top end smartphones are very expensive. Even Apple's 'affordable' iPhone 5C costs a whopping 600 without an operator contract. This leaves most of us hunting for decent smartphones in the mid range category. Here are four such handsets worth looking at.

 

Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini

 

Like the Nokia of old, it has a strategy of flooding the market with as many in between models as it can physically make. But it also knows that people want to get as close to the trendy top end handset as possible.

 

Hence the introduction of the 'mini' concept: take a top of the range handset with its designer styling and trim back the specs a little to make it more affordable for ordinary people. The result is the Galaxy S4 Mini.

 

The Android phone's shrink wrapped features result in a 4.3 inch screen rather than a 5 inch d Men Nike Free 5.0 V4 Leather isplay, a dual core 1.7Ghz chip rather than a quad core model and an 8 megapixel camera instead of a 12 megapixel lens. These are still beefy specs, as is its 4G compliance and wireless NFC. This is probably the top mid range business handset out there.

 

Price: from free on operator contract

 

Rating:

 

HTC One mini

 

While this is by far the best looking mid range smartphone on the market, it has a couple of usability quirks that might annoy some people. Mainly, its touchscreen controls are too close together, resulting in more initial tapping and typing errors than rival devices.

 

Nevertheless, the Android device still has some impressive features, borrowing from its big brother (HTC One) device. These include a superb unibody, metallic design, bright 4.3 inch screen and relatively strong audio prowess. It's also 4G ready, which shouldn't be underestimated as a feature for any business smartphone.

 

Under the hood, it is competently p Men Nike Free Haven 3.0 owered, with a dual core 1.4Ghz chip and 1GB of Ram. It has a regular 5 megapixel camera instead of the 'bigger pixel' camera of the larger model. This isn't as good, but still has a nice wide angle lens.

 

The 1,800mAh battery is modest and gives less than a day's use for a regular user, but this is no worse than most mid level phones.

 

Price: from free on operator contract

 

Rating:

 

Nokia Lumia 820

 

Are Windows phones a flop or just getting going? About one in 20 people have one and that number, populated mainly by Nokia devices, is climbing very slowly.

 

The appeal stems mainly from two things: Microsoft Office compatibility and what remains of Nokia's loyal user base. Windows Phone systems are good with Microsoft synchronisation, meaning that it feels a lot more natural using Microsoft cloud services such as Skydrive.

 

For those who've bought into the system at work, this is a natural fit.

 

Nevertheless, the Lumia 820 is well built machine with enough features to make it a decent smartphone. These include 4G compatibility, an 8 megapixel camera, a separate memory card slot and a 4.3 inch screen.

 

For advertising and PR types, it a lso offers multi coloured covers.

 

Price: from free on contract

 

Rating:

 

iPhone 4S

 

While most attention has moved to recently launched iPhone 5 devices, Apple has cut the price of its 4S model, putting it in competition with mid range phones.

 

Despite being over two years old, the device remains very popular for a number of reasons and despite some weaknesses. First off, iPhones remain first among equals for business (and all) apps. If a useful service is released on an app, the chances are that it's iPhone (and iPad) first, with Android next. So you'll never miss an app here.

 

The iPhone's interface, now updated through iOS7, also remains the most user friendly system for beginners and novices. With middle aged business people still migrating to smartphones in Ireland, this is a strength.

 

The phone has its weaknesses though. Its small screen makes it inappropriate for some functions and less efficient for web browsing and email. It also has relatively poor battery life. Finally, there's no 4G compatibility here.

Washington Whispers

 

By Paul Bedard, Washington Whispers.

 

As President elect Barack Obama continues to build his national security staff, now focused on intelligence, it is possible that he might ask CIA Director Mike Hayden to stay on for a while, intelligence sources say. Much of the speculation about the CIA job has been that Obama wants a change, in part because he disagreed with the CIA's detention policies. But officials are pushing back a little on that issue, suggesting that Hayden has been carrying out the policies backed by Congress and the president before he arrived at Langley, not freelancing on his own. "It's unfair to blame Hayden for things that occurred long before he took the job. But he deserves credit for standing up for the folks over there at CIA, even though a lot of the stuff he has dealt with didn't happen on his watch," said an intelligence official. "Administration p aol olicy and American law shape what the CIA does. If the president says he doesn't want something done, that's it. These are his programs," added the official.

 

What's more, intelligence officials say that the program has changed and that, for example, waterboarding used on three detainees three years before Hayden came aboard. Does he want to stay on? Officials won't be so blunt, but they do suggest Hayden would like continue working with his people. "If he were asked to stay on at CIA, that's something he would consider at the time. Mike likes the work, he has a high regard for the people over there, and he cares passionately about the mission. Those are the factors that he would consider," said an official. Publicly, spokesman Mark Mansfield told Whispers today: "As Director Hayden has said, with every transition comes all sorts of speculation about personnel changes across government. He has tried to ignore it. He understands that he serves at the pleasure of the president, and he is focused on running the CIA."

 

By Paul Bedard, Washington Whispers.

 

That whole change thing Barack Obama hyped during the presidential election seems to have settled into the American psyche. Because when Washington Whispers asked you for a phrase to describe his incoming administration, the overwhelming answer was "Generation Change." With our friends at Synovate and eNation, five possibilities were offered. Generation Change won with 46 percent. Our fave, "Obamalot," was a weak fourth at just 11 percent. Here's our new poll.

 

John F. Kennedy had "Camelot," and Ronald Reagan had the "Reagan Revolution." What should Barack Obama's presidency be coined?

 

By Paul Bedard and Nikki Schwab, Washington Whispers.

 

It didn't make the headlines at the time lady Laura Bush's tour of the kids' rooms for Michelle Obama nabbed those when the outgoing president gave his replacement the guy's version of the White House look see, the duo made a beeline to the gym. "They just rushed upstairs to look at the gym," says Mrs. Bush. It's the "guy thing," she adds. And why not? Unlike previous presidents, President Bush is a regular in the gym and on the mountain bike trail and has equipped his gym well. And given President elect Barack Obama's post election workout schedule, he looks to be every bit Bush's match. Since being elected, Obama has hit the gym at the Regents Park Apartments near his Chicago home and played some hoops nearly every day, even before his trip to Philadelphia to announce his national security team. Besides basketball, he favors the elliptical, treadmill, and free weights. "Depends on the day," says an aide. And l nike free australia ook for the new prez to pull down the nets on the White House tennis courts. We hear he's planning to wheel in a basketball backboard. Unlikely: Leaving the White House to play at the YMCA six blocks away where he worked out during the campaign. "Three or four times ago when he was here, he went in the morning and played basketball at the YMCA across the street," says Satinder Palta, general manager of the Renaissance Mayflower Hotel, Obama's District home during the campaign. Secret Service baseball cap, a North Face jacket, Nike pants, and Nike shoes. His bow to Chicago's Nike Town is appreciated by the sportswear apparel maker. But it's not enough to give him his own line like, say, Air Obama shoes. "We focus on athletes," says Nike spokesman Derek Kent. Still, Obama's style is America's style.

Was this Tiger's call

 

WAS THIS TIGER'S CALL?

 

In the voicemail released by US Weekly, a man says to Los Angeles waitress Jaimee Grubbs, left:

 

"Hey, it's, uh, it's Tiger. I need you to do me a huge favor. Um, can you please, uh, take your name off your phone. My wife went through my phone. And, uh, may be calling you. If you can, please

 

take your name off that and, um, and what do

 

you call it just have it as a number on the voicemail, just have it as your telephone number.

 

That's it, OK. You gotta do this for me. Huge.

 

Quickly. All right. Bye."

 

GLF WOODS (Undated) Without being specific, Tiger Woods admitted transgressions on Wednesday in a rare and personal appeal on his Web site. He apologized to his family for letting them down and appealed again for a measure of privacy amid the firestorm of coverage that has encircled him since he crashed his car outside his house early Friday morning. By Lynn ZinserWoods' sponsors standing behind him for now

 

Eds: M aol ultimedia: An interactive timeline of the No. 1 golfer's career, recent car accident and alleged affairs will be updated to include audio from US Weekly in the sports/tiger woods folder. Moving on general news, financial and sports services. AP Video.

 

But the world's most famous athlete, who offered a "profound apology" Wednesday following allegations of infidelity, might find new deals hard to come by, marketing experts say, and the loyalty of existing sponsors could be tested by any additional tawdry stories or his reluctance to address the issue publicly.

 

"Unfortunately for Tiger, the situation is not over," said Bob Williams, CEO of Burns Entertainment and Sports Marketing, which represents companies looking to hire celebrities to sell their brands.

 

"The linchpin will be when he addresses the public for the first time," Williams said, adding that will help companies determine how they feel about him.

 

Woods' apology came in a statement on his Web site, after a cover story in Us Weekly magazine reported that a Los Angeles cocktail waitress claimed to have had a 31 month affair with the world's No. 1 golfer. The magazine also published what it said was a voice mail provided by the waitress, Jaimee Grubbs that Woods left on her phone on Nov. 24, three days before his middle of the night car crash outside his Florida home.

 

Woods did not offer details of any alleged relationships but said he had "not been true to my values and the behavior my family deserves."

 

Forbes estimated earlier this year that Woods was the first athlete to surpass $1 billion in career earnings, more than 80 percent of that coming from endorsements with companies such as Nike, Gillette, Gatorade and AT Those are all long term relationships, Octagon First Call's David Schwab said, partners not likely to dump him at the first rough patch.

 

Nike, Gatorade and EA Sports all released statements Wednesday expressing their support or commitment to Woods, and Gillette said it had no plans to change its marketing programs. AT declined comment.

 

"These are people who are invested with him in his foundation, his golf courses, across the board. So they're part of his family, too," said Schwab, who also links companies and celebrities for branding opportunities.

 

In fact, cutting ties with Woods now could actually hurt a company, Schwab said.

 

"Brands look at how impactful a spokesperson can be for their for brand b nike free run ut also what the public outcry or public opinion would be," he said. "If a brand drops him, there could potentially be negativity toward the brand for doing so.

 

"That's why brands typically weather the storm."

 

But companies that may have wanted to align themselves with Woods might rethink that particularly companies whose target audience is women or children. Part of Woods' appeal has been his pristine image, off the course as well as on, and events of the last week have tainted that, making him an easy target.

 

Jay Leno poked fun at Woods during his show Tuesday night. Spirit Airlines is trying to capitalize on his troubles, too, offering an "eye of the tiger" sale, which they're promoting with a video that shows a tiger in a baseball cap driving an SUV into a fire hydrant.

 

Zeta Interactive's "Zeta Buzz" mines more than 100 million blogs, message boards and social media posts to analyze the feelings of potential consumers. In the past, terms most associated with Woods were "Masters," "golf" and "winning," Zeta CEO Al DiGuido said. In the last week, that's changed to "affair" and "cheat," DiGuido said.

Help You Retire Rich nike free run

Will Nike Help You Retire Rich

 

Now more than ever, a comfortable retirement depends on secure, stable investments. Unfortunately, the right stocks for retirement won't just fall into your lap. In this series, I look at 10 measures to show what makes a great retirement oriented stock. and internationally. Yet with up and coming niche players trying to make their mark o ask n the industry, can Nike sustain its size advantage? Below, we'll revisit how Nike does on our 10 point scale.

 

The right stocks for retirees With decades to go before you need to tap your investments, you can take greater risks, weighing the chance of big losses against the potential for mind blowing returns. But as retirement approaches, you no longer have the luxury of waiting out a downturn.

 

Sure, you still want good returns, but you also need to manage your risk and protect yourself against bear markets, which can maul your finances at the worst possible time. The right stocks combine both of these elements in a single investment.

 

When scrutinizing a stock, retirees should look for:

 

Size. Most retirees would rather not take a flyer on unproven businesses. Bigger companies may lack their smaller counterparts' growth potential, but they do offer greater security.

 

Consistency. While many investors look for fast growing companies, conservative investors want to see steady, consistent gains in revenue, free cash flow, and other key metrics. Slow growth won't make headlines, but it will help prevent the kind of ugly surprises that suddenly torpedo a stock's share price.

 

Stock stability. Conservative retirement investors prefer investments that move less dramatically than typical stocks, and they particularly want to avoid big losses. These investments will give up some gains during bull markets, but they won't fall as far or as fast during bear markets. Beta measures volatility, but we also want a track record of solid performance as well.

 

Valuation. No one can afford to pay too much for a stock, even if its prospects are good. Using normalized earnings multiples helps smooth out one time effects, giving you a longer term context.

 

Dividends. Most of all, retirees look for stocks that can provide income through dividends. Retirees want healthy payouts now and consistent dividend growth over time as long as it doesn't jeopardize the company's financial health.

 

With those factors in mind, let's take a closer look at Nike.

 

Source: S Capital IQ. Total score = number of passes.

 

Since we looked at Nike last year, the company has kept its seven point score. The stock hasn't done much better than that flat performance, climbing by roughly 5% over the past year.

 

One of the biggest successes that Nike has enjoyed is its discovery that in a world where retail stores are undergoing a huge transformation, what's important is having brand awareness that can drive sales wherever your goods happen to be. With a combination of its own stores as well as selling i nike free australia ts shoes and other merchandise through retail partners, Nike provides multiple showrooms for shoppers either to buy products on the spot or feel more comfortable getting them online.

 

Still, the competition in athletic goods has been fierce. Under Armour has emerged as a credible long term threat, with its huge growth only beginning as it spreads across the globe and tries to capture a bigger part of Nike's shoe market share. Meanwhile, athletic apparel specialist lululemon athletica has tapped into the high end yoga niche with a passion, drawing Gap to imitate the company with its Athleta line and arguably showing Nike that it needs to focus more on female shoppers in its efforts to sustain and grow its own revenue.

Elton John tells Parade magazine that he failed at love many times before meeting life partner David Furnish, left. John says his previous love interests were always younger, and he would "smother them with love," lavishing them with clothing and jewelry to exotic trips. "They didn have jobs. They were reliant on me. I did this repeatedly," John says. "In six months they were bored and hated my guts because I taken their lives and self worth away. I hadn intended to." He also said his partners shared illicit substances with him. "Just about every relationship I ever had was involved with drugs. It never works," he said.

But Thursday afternoon, reached by phone at his Toronto office, Lightfoot said, "I'm fine, thank you the whole thing is a hoax. I don't know how it came about at all. . I'm in great health. I'm doing fine. I'm running around right now, doing my errands."

I can move it," Freeman, 72. He wears a compression glove on the hand, and said, "If you don move your hand, it will swell up. Do you know you move your hand about a million times a day?"

Demaris Meyer sued for pain and suffering, lost wages, permanent disability and property damage. Oscar winner Freeman was nominated again this year as Best Actor for playing Nelson Mandela in "Invictus."

meet in showdown nike free run

Villa Maria to meet in showdown

 

Berchtold, a 5 foot 3 inch freshman, had already developed varsity level ball handling skills and seemed to not run out of energy each practice as the Lakers prepared for the 2008 09 season.

 

"She's like the Energizer bunny out there. She has tremendous stamina and doesn't need to come out," Perfetto said. "She's come a long way over the past four years. That was the one position we needed help with that year. We had just graduated Lindsay Moore and needed a leader at the point guard position."

 

Given the chance, Berchtold hasn't let go of the starting job at point guard in four years. Although she has grown only an inch in her career, t ask he Laker sparkplug has developed into one of the best point guards in District 10.

 

If there were a match to Berchtold at point guard, it would be Lisa Mifsud of Villa Maria. Mifsud, a four year varsity player, has been a part of three state championships with the Victors after transferring from Fairview after her freshman year and has made an immediate impact on the program.

 

"When Lisa first attended Villa and came to an open gym, what stuck out to me was her competitive spirit," Villa coach Doug Chuzie said. "Lisa doesn't like to lose in anything she does. The two point guards have played on the varsity level their entire careers and are both closing in on 1,000 career points.

 

Berchtold, a Gannon recruit, is averaging 13.3 points per game this season and currently has 921 career points. Mifsud, a 5 foot 7 inch senior headed to Division I Holy Cross, is scoring 12 ppg and has 963 for her career.

 

"Lisa definitely brought a lot of dribbling ability to the team and can distribute the ball well," Villa four year varsity player Abbey Steudler said. "She helps everyone get involved and plays a big role on the team. Point guards see plays before they happen and they have to know who to look for each play."

 

The two point guards have four District 10 championships between them, with Mifsud claiming three and Berchtold playing a big role in Mercyhurst Prep's D 10 title last year.

 

With both programs making annual runs at state championships, it takes a special player to earn playing time right away at either school.

 

Berchtold and Mifsud both did it.

 

"It was very intimidating at first to come here and not only play but start," Berchtold said. "I played with a bunch of good players, and they really helped me settle into the position. There is always something to work on to improve, and over the years I've tried to learn everything I could."

 

Both guards possess explosive speed and use it to take the ball to the basket or lock down an opponent on defense.

 

"Both players have very high basketball IQs and do what they need to for their team," Chuzie said. "If that means driving to the hole and dishing, they'll do it. If it means taking over and scoring, they'll do it.

 

UPLOAD YOUR OWN: To submit your photos from any local high school varsity sports events, .

 

Today's gameVilla Maria vs. 13, 2010.

 

Breakdown: Mercyhurst Prep and Villa Maria played a thriller last winter to begin the 2010 11 season. Both teams played a tough game defensively and showed some rust as well, being the first game of the year. Karlee McBride's jumper at the buzzer just missed off the rim. Both teams went on to the PIAA championships, with the Victors claiming their third straight Class AA title and the Lakers falling to Archbishop Wood in the Class AAA game.

 

The rivals have had terrific seasons so far and will look to defend their respective D 10 championships in March. Mercyhurst hasn't lost a game but is still finding its chemistry w nike free australia ith Kayla Wilwohl and Alissa Robbins coming back from injury. Amanda Berchtold and Brenna Robbins have kept the Lakers moving forward this season, while Elysha Chrzanowski has been a solid replacement for Ally Burke. Villa's only losses came to some of the best teams in the country at the Nike Tournament of Champions. All five starters including Lisa Mifsud, Abbey Steudler, Zhane Brooks, Adrienne Kloecker and McBride have committed to colleges and are looking for a historic fourth straight state title. District 10 has 15 PIAA girls basketball titles. Mercyhurst leads D 10 with four titles, while Villa Maria has three. Cranberry, a current member of District 9, is the only other girls basketball team in D 10 history to win multiple state titles, with three.

Housing Is Filled At Former Nike Missile Installation

 

Now, two years later, all of the houses are filled again. The nonprofit interfaith organization renovated the buildings with new carpeting, doors, refrigerators and stoves. It rebuilt the street around the houses, which it renamed Faith Circle. And it found buyers for the properties a Men Nike Flyknit Trainer Anti-Fur nd helped them establish a condominium association.

 

A sign identifying the neighborhood as Rainbow Hollow Homes, A Condominium Community, is expected to be installed at the entrance soon marking the end of the nonprofit group's work and a fresh start for the houses and the first time homebuyers who now live in them.

 

This symbolizes the completion of the project,'' said Sue Hadge, one of the few members of Manchester Interfaith who will retain ties with the Rainbow Hollow residents.

 

Hadge or whoever replaces her as Manchester Interfaith's representative on the condominium association's executive board will remain involved in association meetings and activities, primarily to ensure that the houses stay affordable if the homeowners decide to sell.

 

The corporation, which bought the 13 acre site for $2.27 million, was able to offer the three bedroom houses for under $69,000 because of more than a million dollars in local, state and federal grants and loans.

 

But as a stipulation, the 35 year old houses had to go to a mix of moderate , low and very low income households. The federal government, which gave the group a $146,700 Community Development Block Grant, required at least half of the houses go to low and very low income families.

 

Malcolm Barlow, the attorney representing Manchester Interfaith, said the neighborhood has developed into a dynamic community.'' Not only is there a mix of people with different incomes, but 20 percent of the families are in minority groups. Also, he said, they have put together a condominium association that is pure democracy at work.''

 

They do their own bill collecting, bill paying and they set their own budget,'' Barlow said. They get the things done that have to be done.''

 

The condominium association, which collects monthly dues of $75, will make sure the communal properties, such as roads and woods, remain in good condition, and that street lights are lit and snow is plowed.

 

Barlow s nike aid the residents also have started to make minor changes to their properties that make them different.

Happy day for Happydent

 

The Happydent ad won a Silver and Bronze Lion in the Films category, while the Blind School Film won a Bronze Lion, just as agencyfaqs! had predicted

 

The Happydent commercial has done India proud at Cannes. The film has won a Silver Lion in the sub category, Sweet Foods and Snacks, and a Bronze Lion for Best Use of Music.

 

However, the bigger s Men Nike Free Trainer 3.0 urprise by far was the Eye Bank film entered by Code Red Films, which won a bronze in the sub category, Fundraising and Appeals. In fact, agencyfaqs! had predicted this win, based on its interaction with the juries of various categories.

 

This film was shot by Gajaraj Rao and Subrat Ray, and written and conceptualised by Manish Bhatt and Raghu Bhat.

 

Talking about this film, Bob Scarpelli, chairman and chief creative officer, DDB Worldwide, who also presided over the Film jury, says, Honestly, when we screened this film, we were touched. The film was full of emotions, and also had a surprise element in it. One takes a little time to discover that the children are blind.

 

But then we couldn t understand the significance of the celebration, until Ravi (Deshpande) explained to the jury about the festival of Holi, the day when everyone plays with colours.

 

The idea of blind children playing with colours is undoubtedly marvellous, Scarpelli adds.

 

In fact with this win, there seems to be a growing trend of Indian entries making their way in categories such as public service and public awareness. Two other public awareness entries from India have won this year in two separate categories the female foeticide radio spot done by Leo Burnett and the adoption press campaign done by O The juries had similar comments to make on both entries. Perhaps, Indian creatives have mastered the art of portraying emotions . Scarpelli nods in agreement.

 

When asked about the Happydent commercial, Scarpelli said that it s been one of his favourite films. Many of the jury members felt that the idea of showing sparkling teeth has been done quite often, but the way it was done in this ad was marvellous.

 

It s a great way to celebrate Indian culture. The film is a brilliant piece of work in terms of execution of strategy, Scarpelli asserts.

 

The film bagged a silver for the execution, but missed the gold for idea.

 

The other two films t nike hat were nominated Bajaj Fans by Leo Burnett and Nike by JWT were not even considered for the Lions, says the jury.

Is Like Basketball nike free run

Leadership Is Like Basketball

 

Converse sneakers, now owned by Nike, have been around since 1908. But Jim Calhoun, 46, only stepped up to head the brand two years ago. It was a kind of homecoming for him. Early in his career he had worked in Nike's basketball division before taking executive jobs at the Walt Disney Walt Disney Company and Levi Strauss Company, where he was in charge of the Dockers brand. On his return to Nike he first headed up skateboarding and surfing clothes brand Hurley. I talked to Calhoun about the leadership lessons he's learned along the way. Here are edited excerpts from our conversation.

 

Were you a leader when you were a kid?

 

My dad was a college basketball coach. He worked for 40 plus years at Northeastern in Boston and then at U. Conn. At first I never would have referred to my dad as a leader. I also didn't think I could do what he did. He's 6'5" and my mom is 5'1". I'm 5'10". I knew I couldn't go into the family business but I wanted to go into business. Still, I didn't know exactly what that meant. Though I'm very close to my dad I talk to him twice a day I didn't see that what I was doing was a lot like coaching. Then finally about 15 years ago I had an e Kids Nike Free Run piphany as I was describing my job to somebody and I realized it was a lot like my father's.

 

How is being a CEO like coaching college basketball?

 

There's a helplessness to being a coach or a CEO. There's only so much you can do. In coaching it was his job to say, if you can't pass the ball, and you can't score the points, you can't play defense. A coach is forced to rely on the people he's assembled and the guidance he's given them. My role as CEO is very similar. I don't have the time or ability and the expertise to micro manage every aspect of the business.

 

If you're not managing, what are you doing?

 

Leadership isn't about doing the work. It's about building a team of talented individuals who can build and mesh together. Then you've got to give them some guidance. In my dad's case he drew up plays. Let's say there are five other defenders who want to stop the play. His team has got to be able to adjust on the fly.

 

I assemble people. We identify a common goal. We build our fundamentals and then ultimately the game is played. It's never scripted the way you imagine. The team's ability to work through those unexpected issues and come out the other end with a victory that's what I manage.

 

Tell me about a recent victory.

 

We're in the process of taking back our international licenses. We've operated a business model where we had third party partners overseas who managed and ran the Converse business. It was passive and arms' length. We've built a playbook to help us understand what we're trying to do and how to do it. But no two markets are the same. and Spain for example. is a much different proposition from finding multiple offices in Spain. There's no such thing as a central office in Spain because retailers are much more provincial there. Also what they're looking for in a career is very different. In England there are a lot of people attracted to the coolness of the brand. In Spain people want to talk about longevity and career development.

 

When you're dealing with a pop culture brand and you're expanding, you're building the plane as you fly.

 

What was your first management job?

 

I worked at Nike in the mid '90s when it was rapidly expanding as an apparel brand. They were growing so quickly they were giving promotions every six to nine months. I was a hands on product guy and suddenly I went from player to coach, somewhat reluctantly. I was 30 and I fought it a little bit. I was humbled to realize that there were plenty of other people who could do what I was doing on the product side better than I could. I quickly learned how important it was to surround myself with talented people rather than classic yes men. I went from managing zero to managing six people. I didn't have time in the day to tell everybody how to do their jobs.

 

Since Forbes hired me in 1995 to write a legal column, I've taken advantage of the great freedom the magazine grants its staff, to pursue stories about everything from books to billionaires. I've chased South Africa's first black billionaire through a Cape T nike own shopping mall while admirers flocked around him, climbed inside the hidden chamber in the home of an antiquarian arms and armor dealer atop San Francisco's Telegraph Hill, and sipped Chateau Latour with one of Picasso's grandsons in the Venice art museum of French tycoon Franois Pinault. I've edited the magazine's Lifestyle section and opinion pieces by the likes of John Bogle and Gordon Bethune. As deputy leadership editor, these days I mostly write about careers and corporate social responsibility. I got my job at Forbes through a brilliant libertarian economist, Susan Lee, whom I used to put on television at MacNeil/Lehrer NewsHour. Before that I covered law and lawyers for journalistic stickler, harsh taskmaster and the best teacher a young reporter could have had, Steven Brill.

reality far different nike free run

Image and reality far different for Olympian

 

Her image could hardly have been better: Athletic. A knockout. All American. So accomplished and so wholesome that Disneyland hired her for speaking engagements, the Big Ten named an award after her and the Wisconsin Potato and Vegetable Growers Association made her their pitchwoman.

 

Yet something troubled Suzy Favor Hamilton. The former track star out of Wisconsin, whose speed and talent took her to seven national championships and three Olympics, ultimately dealt with her demons by stealing away to live a life as a highly paid prostitute.

 

An "escape," she called it, that was really a way of masking an American Dream coming unhinged a real life tragedy that undercut the myth that success, wealth and fame is a surefire path to happiness.

 

"I do not expect people to understand," Favor Hamilton said in a frenzied burst of tweets after details about her secret life became public Thursday in a report on The Smoking Gun website. "But the reasons f Men Nike Free TR Twist or doing this made sense to me at the time and were very much related to depression."

 

Stanley Teitelbaum, a psychologist who wrote the book "Athletes Who Indulge Their Dark Side," said it's not so difficult to understand. After retiring, and spending most of her life trying to live up to a certain ideal and getting her highs from the adrenaline rush of elite, competitive sports, day to day life in the civilian world can seem boring.

 

"You've got to think of an emotional outlet, maybe in her case, a nonconventional outlet, a way of getting high by somehow being a bad girl in contrast to her image of an upstanding, Olympic athlete," Teitelbaum said.

 

In an interview earlier this year with the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, Favor Hamilton said she dealt with anxiety, an eating disorder and struggled with postpartum depression after the birth of her daughter, Kylie, now 7. But, she told the newspaper, "I feel better than I've ever felt."

 

At the time of the interview, it turned out, she was doubling as "Kelly Lundy," a $600 an hour call girl for an escort service based in Las Vegas.

 

Apparently, it wasn't for the money. In the Journal Sentinel profile, Favor Hamilton said she gave upward of 60 motivational speeches each year and ran a successful realty firm, in addition to doing appearances for Disney and the Rock 'n' Roll Marathon series. The Smoking Gun reported that a check through public records showed she lived in a $600,000 house in the Madison suburb of Shorewood Hills and that neither she nor her husband, Mark, had any outward signs of financial difficulties.

 

Some homes in Shorewood Hills back onto university property.

 

On Friday, there was no answer at the front door of her house a sizeable, split level home at the end of a cul de sac where a hurdle emblazoned with the word "Wisconsin" sits, snow covered, alongside the driveway.

 

A neighbour, Bob Lynch, who used to coach boxing at Wisconsin, said he used to see Favor Hamilton, her husband and daughter walking around the neighbourhood and "they looked like a solid, little family."

 

"She's really successful," Lynch said. "Madison's a small town that way. If you were a sports hero at the university, you could do well in business."

 

Neither Favor Hamilton nor her husband, Mark Hamilton, was at their real estate office Friday, which was closing for the Christmas holiday.

 

In the wake of the news, Disney cancelled an upcoming appearance by Favor Hamilton, the Orange County Register reported. The Big Ten conference, which hands out the Suzy Favor Athlete of the Year Award to honour an athlete who won 23 conference and nine NCAA titles, had no comment Friday. A spokesman for the UW athletic department also declined comment.

 

A walk around the campus in Madison paints a compelling picture of the revered status she still holds at Wisconsin.

 

Inside the Kohl Center, where the Wisconsin basketball team plays, Favor Hamilton is remembered on a long wall near the entrance commemorating "great moments in athletics history," which also includes Heisman winner Ron Dayne and other UW greats.

 

In another area, w nike here the trophy awarded to her as the 1989 1990 Collegiate Woman of the Year is on display, a plaque beneath it reads, "There's only one Suzy." Favor Hamilton is also singled out on the university's website describing the displays, describing her as "incomparable."

 

But when Favor Hamilton was in school, according to two people who knew her then, she was generally regarded as shy and unassuming. Despite that, she had ways of grabbing attention that now have an odd resonance. She was sporadically injured and unable to practice on the track, so to get her cardio work in, she would swim laps in the pool while the men's team was practising. While one piece suits were the norm for women training in an athletic environment, Favor Hamilton would peel off into a head turning, two piece bikini.

 

In 2000, she starred in a Nike commercial that's a send up of horror movies. Dressed in a sports bra and running shorts, Favor Hamilton is stalked through the woods by a chainsaw wielding zombie, but escapes by simply outrunning him. Message: "Why sport? You'll live longer."

like Paolo Maldini nike free run

I'm not a machine like Paolo Maldini

 

For Chelsea and England, the 29 year old is a leviathan of the modern game; a consistently superb performer whose ability to ally defensive resilience with attacking incision marks him out as the quintessential contemporary full back.

 

Cole misses tomorrow night's international against France at Wembley through injury but he joined Kenny Sansom as the most capped England full back earlier this year after his 86th outing and at club level has won three Premier League titles, six FA Cups and one League Cup medal.

 

He s Men Nike Free 3.0 V2 hould be revered as one of this country's genuine world class talents at a time when faith in the national team remains shaken from the travails in South Africa.

 

And yet in many quarters, opinion is distorted by a turbulent period off the field that culminated in divorce from wife Cheryl in September.

 

Cole turns 30 next month it is an age when players become starkly aware of their career's mortality. Injury forces him to sit out tomorrow night's friendly against France and affords him further chance for introspection.

 

"You do get a bit reflective at this stage in your career," he told Standard Sport. "There are a lot of youngsters coming through we have Josh McEachran, who is 17, and you sit with him thinking: How old are you?' You do feel your age but being on the pitch makes me feel young and enthusiastic and healthy. That's what keeps me going every day in training.

 

"It's not down to me to get people to give me recognition what can I do? All I can do is play well. What can I say? It's one of those things. It happens. I am just doing my job playing as well as I can for Chelsea and trying to win things.

 

"I try my best for England, too, and what people think is out of my hands. I can't do anything about it."

 

Cole appears resigned to suffering at the hands of supporters only too willing to judge him through distorted vision and perhaps such ire is more easily navigated when those within the game are so effusive in their praise. Despite a surprise omission from the FIFA Ballon D'Or shortlist, manager Carlo Ancelotti has found many agreeable voices to his contention that Cole is the best left back in the world.

 

Chelsea boss Ancelotti went further in comparing Cole to great AC Milan defender Paolo Maldini, not in playing style but for his professionalism, particularly in the face of such personal adversity.

 

"I don't listen to the good or the bad as long as my team mates are happy and my manager, too, and the fans seem to be happy, that's all that matters to me," he said.

 

"If I am winning trophies, then it makes it better. I just want to keep playing well for Chelsea and whatever people want to write, they will write."

 

Maldini went on to play until after his 40th birthday but Cole doubts he will follow the Italian's lead.

 

"I would love to carry on as long as I can and be somewhere close to as successful as him because he had a great career," he said.

 

"I can't see myself playing until I am 40 like Maldini. He was a machine and I am not, really. You don't get people like that too often you might see it in goalkeepers but rarely does a centre back or a left back play with the quality he did. I hope to do that.

 

"I used to look at players like Roberto Carlos and see how I could improve and be like him.

 

"Now I have developed my own style and I play how my manager wants. I just want to play my own way and do the things I know I can every week."

 

Away from the action, Cole is content "chilling at home with the X Box Call of Duty is my favourite game" and is comfortable enough to occasionally venture to Niketown with friends to "get some new gear".

 

Talk of leaving Chelsea as life in England verged on the untenable "only got as far as a conversation with the manager" and now he appears settled once more in London life and is even contemplating taking his coaching badges with the Blues.

 

"I have a contract with Chelsea so I will stay here for the remainder of that," he said. "People don't know me they just know what people write. My personality is shown on the training ground and around my friends and family. They see the real me so I am just doing my thing. I want to win, work hard, be better and improve. When I wake up in the morning, I want to go to training and that is all I want to do.

 

"One day, I will try to take my coaching badges. I would have to learn a lot to be the standard of the coaches at Chelsea. I know you don't start at Chelsea you have to go through a lot of coaching and am I good enough? I would say I don't think I nike am to be a coach.

 

"It may be something in the future I would try to learn from the people at Chelsea but I have not really thought that far ahead."

 

Ashley Cole was speaking at the official reopening of Niketown London on Oxford Street. The 49 year old, who has previously held posts in Russia, Spain and Denmark, led the Welsh side to a ninth place finish in the Premier League last season and made history by winning the club's first ever major trophy with a 5 0 win over Bradford in the League Cup final. Having been linked to Real Madrid and PSG in recent months, the former Barcelona midfielder has seen his stock rise and Levy may feel that he would be getting one of the best young managers in the game if he was to make a move for him now.".
