Through the eyes of Paula...

With the Rio 2016 Summer Olympics approaching quickly, it may interest some people to learn about some lesser known Olympic sports. To take a break from the well-known events, one can take a chance on watching and learning about a different event. Here are a few unusual Olympic sports.

1. Judo: Judo is a gentle way for athletes to take their opponents down – gentle as in not involving kicking or punching. This martial art uses a combination of throws and muscle power. This year marks 52 years since judo was introduced in the Olympics.

2. Rugby: Rugby may be unusual only because it has been absent from the Olympics for decades. The top contenders for the top prize are the Canadian and American women’s teams.

3. Field hockey: Field hockey is the only Olympic team sport in which there are medalists from all inhabited continents of the world. Historically played on grass, the international federation modified it to be played on a synthetic surface to provide a faster pace for flicking or chasing the ball. At Rio 2016, teams will compete in 15-minute quarters rather than 35-minute halves.

4. Trampoline gymnastics: Trampoline gymnastics only made its debut at the Sydney 2000 games, which is fairly recent. Competitors can compete solo or in teams, and they must execute an array of twists, turns, and other aerial feats while completing 10 bounces that put their bodies several metres above a trampoline.

If you are not on the same page in this area of life you really need to reconsider your future life together.

The point is, there are enough questionable circumstances surrounding this occurrence that a trial is warranted to bring out the truth as best we can.

    Sen McCain waited for the Egyptian military to do the right thing, and they did. What is his problem? Is he senile? Doesnt he understand that Islamic Democracy is an oxymoron? He should try reading Sayyid Koutbs book Milestones, the Mein Kampf of the Muslim Brotherhood. The reason there are always Dictators running Muslim countries is because the people there are too divided, too diverse, to come to any consensus, and thus are ungovernable by normal western-style democracy.The Muslim Brotherhood was well on its way to taking away all the democratic rights of those that didnt fit its agenda and would put the country under Sharia Law as soon as they had all their agenda in place. Just look at the starting place of the Arab Spring, Tunisia to see what would happen if they werent stopped. And look at what happened in a similar situation years ago in Algeria. What is it about reality that McCain doesnt get? Blathering about what the US stands for seems eveen more absurd as our own rights are being eroded in the name of national security.

    One example of this in practice is welfare reform, the most successful domestic policy change in a generation. The federal reforms championed by former House Speaker Newt Gingrich in the face of significant resistance from President Bill Clinton contained elements first tested and proven to work in places like Michigan, Wisconsin and Massachusetts. In the current era, when state budgets are stretched beyond the breaking point, privatization seems like an idea that could have a similarly beneficial impact for all concerned.

Chief of these are advantages for members in the allocation of costs after libel and privacy trials.
