paid college basketball coaches

Manage your account settings.Just ask the University of Louisville’s Rick Pitino, the highest paid coach at a public school in this season’s NCAA Buy Nike Air Max 2017 Disu Men Green Blue Black Ireland’s basketball tournament, or the University of Kentucky’s John Calipari, the highest paid coach not in it.BRACKET BRIEFING: Most shocking Final Four outcomesPitino’s Cardinals will play in Saturday’s Final Four and are favorites to win the national championship. Pitino makes just shy of $5 million, which would likely make him his state’s highest paid public employee, if not for Calipari, who makes more than $5.4 million and whose Wildcats won last season’s national championship.Pitino’s contract runs to 2022 and will pay him roughly $42 million if he completes it, plus potential bonuses worth millions. And his boss thinks he’s a bargain.“In a lot of ways,“ Louisville athletics director Tom Jurich says, „I would look at him and say he is underpaid.“SELF’S PAY: Kansas coach has biggest deal given by public schoolThat’s not how many observers would think of what college basketball coaches are paid these days. The average pay for Air Jordan 12 GS Hyper Jade 510815-017 Women Black Green Ireland coaches in this year’s NCAA tournament field is $1.47 million, up slightly from $1.4 million last season. That’s based on 62 of 68 schools in the field for which USA TODAY Sports was able to obtain compensation figures. Department of Education and data collected by USA TODAY Sports.DATABASE: Salaries for the 2013 NCAA tournament coachesMETHODOLOGY: How USA TODAY Sports compiled the databasePitino and Calipari declined to comment for Adidas Ultra Boost UB 3.0 BA8862 Men Black White Ireland Online this story through spokespersons, as did key decision makers at their schools, outside of Jurich.There were 42 schools in the tournament field both this season and last. USA TODAY Sports obtained compensation packages for 37 of them in each year and found average pay for coaches at those schools was $1.57 million in 2012 and is $1.75 million in 2013, an increase of 11.Air Jordan 4 Retro 819138-010 Premium Men Black Leather Outlet Ireland%. The median increase is 8.2%, which might be a more relevant number given the small sample size and wide range in dollars and Buy Nike Air Max 2017 Disu Men Green Blue Black Ireland percentages.“These salaries just look out of sync when it comes to the educational mission of our colleges and universities,“ says Anne D. Neal, president of the American Council of Trustees and Alumni. „Trustees and presidents have to ask themselves what justifies these obscenely rising salaries in a time of limited resources.“

Petra Ecclestone

It was a big house on a corner, with a lovely back garden. When I was 12 or 13, I got into modelling and then wanted to be a fashion designer. I’ve appreciated life much more since then. I was hospitalised for two weeks. My mother because she is extremely honest and humble, and my father for his work ethic. I’m too much of a perfectionist, and my own worst enemy. I give myself a hard time about everything. I want my private and working life to be flawless. I keep a notebook and my laptop by my bed, in case I think of something during the night. I am privileged and I don’t take that for granted at all. He doesn’t try too hard, but looks glamorous and rugged. I love Brigitte Bardot’s big blonde hair and eye liner. She’s sexy without trying.

I wish I’d never worn . For my mum’s birthday in Monaco, I wore a pink and Adidas Equipment Support ADV BB1301 Men Black Green Ireland Sale Gavin Douglas dress, and the zip broke. My friend had to go and Adidas Y3 Qasa High Unisex Gray Ireland get help to have it fixed. It was an ordeal.

It’s not fashionable but I like. Ugg boots. They’re not the most attractive thing, but they’re just so comfy.

The shops I can’t walk past. are generally in Soho and the meatpacking district in New York. It’s always clothes shops and shoe shops. And handbags. I probably have 50 pairs of shoes. I rarely Buy Air Jordan 4 KAWS 930155-302 Men Army Green Ireland shoes from the Adidas Y3 Qasa High Unisex Gray Ireland street, I like them to be top end.

My favourite work of art. I just bought a piece by the artist Dan Baldwin called ‚Autumn Girl‘. It’s a graffiti style cartoon with a girl on a spider web. It’s hanging next to my pool table.

My favourite item of clothing. My mum gave me a purple Herms Birkin bag, which I use every day. I have two bulldogs, a boxer and a King Charles living in my apartment. I buy them treats and lots of different collars. The designer went for quite dark, sensual colours: brown suede wallpaper in my bedroom and dressing room, and deep purples. It’s beautiful gold with a white diamond. It’s tall, with Under Armour SpeedForm Fortis 2 Men Black White Sale Ireland glass and reminds me of the TV show ‚Dallas‘.

Movie heaven.’Seven‘. I love the part at the end when Morgan Freeman and Brad Pitt find the head.

A book that changed me.’The Lovely Bones‘ by Alice Sebold. I found the way she writes incredibly haunting. Normally I get bored of books after a few chapters, but I couldn’t put down this one. I like a bit of indie and rock, but when I go out I like to listen to R’n’B.

Shoe Styles of the 1960s

In contrast to the 1950s high heel stiletto, early 1960s fashion welcomed the shorter kitten heel. This demure shoe had a slender 1.Air Jordan 5 136027-051 Men Camo Grey Sale Ireland to 2 inch heel. The kitten heel was originally worn by preteen girls as sort of a training heel, Nike Air Max 2017 918091-991 Men Black Gold Ireland Sale because they were less provocative and shorter than the „skyscraper“ 3 inch stiletto, according to „The Berg Companion to Fashion.“ However, due to the increase in podiatric problems associated with high heels, mature generations adopted the lower pointy toe pump. The kitten heel was also glamorized on the silver screen by the actress Audrey Hepburn, which further fueled its popularity.

The mod fashion movement hit its height in the mid 1960s, bringing with it a clean and modern aesthetic. Though the original mod trend was a rebellion of the 1950s working class style, by the 1960s the look was made mainstream by celebrities including the supermodel Twiggy and Sonny and Cher. The mod shoe look was a tall platform with a chunky, sometimes wedge heel. Bright colors or Adidas NMD S79166 Unisex All White Ireland shoes were the rage, and square or rounded toes replaced their pointy predecessors. Moreover, a 1 inch or Nike Air Max 2017 918091-991 Men Black Gold Ireland Sale higher platform made this shoe vastly different from the demure kitten heel that started the decade.

acid attackers poured acid over mother as she walked her six

A gang who laughed as they doused a woman in acid while she walked her six year old twins home from school have been jailed for a total of 44 years.

The attackers was heard laughing as the noxious liquid was sprayed at the screaming mother in front of her two boys outside Upton Cross Primary School in Upton Park, east London.

Speaking after the attack the woman, who suffered horrendous burns to her face and body, said: ‚I saw a man approach me who was carrying something in a bottle.

‚He threw it over me and after a few seconds it started burning. I was crying: „Please help me! Please help me!“‚

It is thought Yannick Ntesa, 25, sprayed the acid and made his getaway in a Nike Air More Uptempo OG Men Black Red White Ireland Online BMW with

Abdul Motin, Nike Air More Uptempo OG Men Black Red White Ireland Online 28, and 31 year old Ahad Miah.

The 44 year old mother, from Plaistow, fled to a neighbour’s home where water was poured over her burning clothes.

Some of the acid burnt her son’s satchel while another mother also suffered minor injuries in the attack on March 24, 2011.

The victim was rushed to the Royal London Hospital and later transferred to a specialist burns unit in Chelmsford, Essex.

‚The victim in this case is entirely innocent but will now spend the rest of her life having to adjust to the severe disfigurement inflicted on her.

‚This sentencing demonstrates just how seriously the Met police and Air Jordan 11 Retro 378037-107 Men Black White Ireland Sale the courts treat such incidents. Those responsible have been bought to justice and we can only hope it brings some small comfort to the victim.‘

Naomi Oni, 21, who worked at Stratford’s Westfield Shopping Centre, spent a month in hospital after an acid attack in Dagenham, Essex, in the early hours of December 30 last year.

In April a 28 year old woman, named as Tara, had acid squirted in her face after answering the door of her home in Romford, Buy 2017 Adidas Nmd New Arrived S75232 R1 3M Women Black Pink Ireland to a stranger.

Backpacking Boots Vs

Candace Horgan, studioD

Related Articles The Best Hiking Boots in the World The Best Cheap Hiking Boots The Best Winter Hiking Boots for Women The Best Light Weight Hiking Boots A good pair of hiking boots or hiking shoes is an investment that can pay dividends for years, making hiking both on and off trail a much more enjoyable experience. Hiking boots have evolved greatly since the late 1960s, when they were basically slightly lighter versions of alpine mountaineering boots and quite heavy. Hikers now can choose between lightweight shoes, lightweight boots and heavier all around boots, depending on their planned activity. The only real difference is that backpacking boots are heavier and sturdier. They are usually an all leather design, so that they offer more support when carrying heavy loads for multi day outings.

Lightweight Footwear Lightweight footwear for hiking can basically be divided into trail shoes, which are low cut shoes that have a stiffer sole than sneakers to cushion the foot more, and fabric/leather combination boots that offer more support. If you will just be doing day hikes with a light pack, low cut trail shoes are fine. If you plan to do any overnight backpacking, Adidas Y3 Qasa High Unisex Gray Ireland a pair of fabric/leather boots is best, as it offers more support. When considering these types of boots, look for ones with Gore Tex. While leather can be treated with waterproof materials, fabric cannot, so a Gore Tex inner is the only way a fabric/leather boot can be made waterproof.

Leather Boots Leather boots are more supportive, stiffer, warmer and more durable than fabric/leather combination boots. Leather can be treated with products like Nikwax to make it water repellent as well. All leather boots are the best choice for multi day backpacking trips, unless said trips will be in extremely hot environments, in which case a fabric/leather combination boot, which is cooler, might be a better choice.

Other Considerations Other considerations for deciding between backpacking and hiking boots can come from the construction of the boot and the sole, and the shank inside the boot. Shanks stiffen the sole and can be full or half length and made of steel or plastic. Steel shanks are more supportive, and also stiffer. The shank, Nike Air Max 2017 Disu Men Black Yellow Gold Sale Ireland combined with the type of sole, can make a boot crampon compatible. For people backpacking in the Cascades or Rocky Mountains who might want to climb peaks in those regions involving travel over snow, a crampon compatible backpacking boot is a must.

Break in All leather boots require much more break in time, so if you are buying a pair for an extended trip, make sure you buy them well in advance so you have time to break the boots in. Wearing a new pair of boots on a long day of extended backpacking is a recipe for blisters.

Ancient City of Damascus

Even in a land as ancient as the Middle East the city of Damascus stands out.

The city has changed hands countless times over the centuries. Assyrians, Persians, Greeks, Nabataeans, Romans, the Umayyad caliphate, Seljuk Turks, Mongols, Ottomans, French and many others all once held sway here. Each group left echoes behind that became part of the city’s rich tapestry then vanished. The city itself, though, thrived as it does today at the heart of an independent Syria.

Damascus‘ rich history is alive in the historic quarter, where narrow lanes wander through warrens of ancient buildings, pass lively markets, and reveal historic sites all surrounded by remnants of venerable walls and legendary gates.

The Umayyad Mosque is Islam’s earliest great mosque and ranks in holiness below those of Mecca and Medina. As befits Damascus, Cheap Adidas Pure Boost S80981 Men White Beige Ireland the mosque site was once home to temple of Syria’s ancient Aramaean people, then to a Roman temple honoring Jupiter (part of the facade remains adjacent to the mosque) and a Christian church in the era of Constantine. The Arab conquest of Damascus eventually precipitated construction of the mosque, which dates to the early eighth century. A shrine reported to house the head of John the Baptist lies inside the mosque walls.

Next to the mosque’s north gate sits the tomb of Salah al Din ibn Ayyub (Saladin) the legendary warrior sultan who defeated the Crusaders in several decisive battles and drove them from Jerusalem.

A modern (by Damascene standards) piece of history can be found in Souq al Hamidiyya, where an ancient street was converted into a lively covered market during the late 19th century Ottoman era. The bazaar is only one of the old city’s many suqs, where sellers peddle spices, sweets, rugs, and all manner of tempting wares as they have for centuries.

Traditional Damascene homes are often unassuming from the street, but their interiors, built around lush courtyard gardens, are artistic and architectural treasures often filled with fine things. Some outstanding examples are open to the public, such as the mid 18th century Azem Palace, built for the governor of Damascus but now home to the Museum of Arts and Popular Traditions.

The ancient section of Damascus has seen populations decrease in recent years as residents seek Nike Air More Uptempo OG Men Black White Orange Ireland modern housing. This trend has led to some empty buildings, which paired with government redevelopment plans, may threaten some of the city’s historic legacy.

How to Get ThereDamascus International Airport is 16 miles (26 kilometers) from the center of the city. Damascus is also well served by bus routes, both public and private, from other regional cities, including Beirut, Lebanon, and Amman, Jordan.

When to GoDamascus is an eternal city and worth a visit at any time of the year. Syrian summers are hot, and winters are mild but wet. Spring and fall are excellent seasons for Adidas Nmd Human AC7359 Colorful Flyknit Unisex Wine Red Yellow Ireland Online a visit.

How to VisitOld Damascus‘ winding lanes are best explored on foot, and a leisurely pace allows ample time to explore the city’s ageless charms including frequent stops at enticing restaurants and cafes.

Why Nike Is A Buy Now And Forever

In search of the next great investment, I found myself looking at Nike (NYSE:NKE) as possible investment. I haven’t considered Nike as a realistic investment earlier in my investing career due to a lack of capital. However, now that I have a little capital, it time to take a closer look at Nike and why it is a great company to Buy. My investment thesis on why Nike is a buy goes back to when I was in the 2nd grade and I owned my first Michael Air Jordan 5 Low Premium ASG 819951-003 Men Grey White Ireland’s Jersey. At the time, I did not know much about Nike or what the company did. All I knew was basketball and Michael Air Jordan 11 Retro 378037-107 Men Black White Ireland Sale was a great player. As I grew up, I owned various shoes from Adidas Nmd Human Rose Dark Blue White Sale Ireland to Vans. The first time I thought Nike was a great company was when I was camping out at Finishline in 2006 for a new pair of Jordan’s with my friend. To see the great heights people went through for Jordan was astonishing. It showed that Air Jordan 13 Ray Allen PE 414571-125 Men White Green Outlet Ireland Brand was strong that hundred of people were willing to wait in a long line to buy a pair. Flash forward to today and again, I looked at Nike as a company that does not plan to slow down or give market shares to any competitors. Why was it considered it a great company? Here was my perspectives as a consumer.

Brand Power:

In the latest 2016 ranking by brand consultancy Millward Brown, Nike was ranked 24th on the list. The report can be found here. Nike was ranked higher than Home Depot (NYSE:HD), Walmart (NYSE:WMT), and American Express (NYSE:AXP). That meant to me that the company was very appealing to consumer globally. Also, if you just look around in your daily life, you will not find it hard to spot a Nike product. When I go to work, I see coworkers wearing Nike. When I go on Snapchat or Instagram, I see my friends and/or celebrities promoting Nike. Nike has a tremendous amount of free marketing by its fan base and consumers. A lot of professional athletics out there are very loyal to the brand even though they are not sponsored by them. For an example, recently James Harden of the Houston Rockets signed a 200 million dollars shoe contract with Adidas but was found wearing Nike at social events as reported by TMZ. This was obviously an embarrassment to Adidas and it showed how much Brand loyalty paid a huge role in market dominance.

Figure 1 Nike Market Share from 2010 2014

Source: Sporting Goods Intelligence

Nike’s market share have been growing and it is shown in the Figure 1. As illustrated, it was clear to see that Nike dominated the market recently and it was by a large margin. Although Figure 1 showed data from only 2010 to 2014, the latest research showed that in 2015, Nike’s market as now increased to 60% according to Forbes. What has led to Nike’s dominate run toward capturing the market shares? They have been capitalizing on latest industries trend such as „athleisure“ which tailored toward providing athletics clothing that can be worn in multiple settings such as casual or social events. In a breakdown of their revenue for 2015 shown in Figure 2, their growth potential in global market was great. Forbes stated in a recent article that „Nike brand revenues in Western Europe grew by 17% and Central and Eastern Europe grew by 20%“. What was not shown in these growth opportunity charts were the growth opportunity domestically particularly in newer market such as skateboarding, runners, women clothing, youth athletes and fitness wearable. Combining business growth, market dominance and brand power, Nike will continue to be a great company now and going forward.

Now let’s take a look at the numbers to see whether or not Nike was a buy. Using Ben Graham’s basic formula as shown below, I performed the basic calculation to determine Nike’s fair value.

Ben Graham’s Intrinsic Value Formula as found on Wikipedia:

V: Intrinsic Value EPS: the company’s last 12 month earnings per share 8.5: the constant represents the appropriate P E ratio for a no growth company as proposed by Graham g: the company’s long term (five years) earnings growth estimate 4.4: the average yield of high grade corporate bonds in 1962, when this model was introduced Y: the current yield on 20 year AAA corporate bonds. Here are the calculation results:

defendant attorney says police were coercive

FALL RIVER, Mass. (AP) An attorney for a man who was charged with murder along with ex NFL player Aaron Hernandez argued Friday that police coerced him to answer questions in the investigation and the information should not be allowed into evidence.

Defense attorney John Connors said at a hearing on a motion to suppress that police acted improperly when they questioned Carlos Ortiz about the June 2013 shooting death of Odin Lloyd. Police misstated the Miranda warning and used coercive tactics, suggesting Ortiz was being used by Hernandez, the defense said.

“We believe he did ask for an attorney and that was not followed up on,“ Connors said. “We believe the tactics were coercive. We believe it was not a voluntary waiver. We believe he was coerced into taking a lie detector test. Pretty much on every possible way they were wrong.“

Ortiz and Ernest Wallace, a third defendant, have pleaded not guilty to murder charges. Hernandez was convicted of the killing in April and Buy Adidas Superstar New Adidas Superstar Skull Head 2017 New Style Black Gold Online sentenced to life in prison without parole. Prosecutors say Ortiz and Buy Adidas Superstar New Adidas Superstar Skull Head 2017 New Style Black Gold Online Wallace helped Hernandez carry out the killing.

Massachusetts State Police Sgt. John Moran acknowledged in court Friday that he suggested to Ortiz during questioning that Ortiz was a “patsy“ or the “throwaway guy“ for Hernandez.

Judge Susan Garsh did not make a decision on the defense request. The hearing is to continue Tuesday.

Ortiz appeared in Bristol County Superior Court after an earlier appearance with Wallace for a status conference. It was their first time in court since Hernandez was convicted.

The parties discussed trial schedules for the two Adidas Ultra Boost Uncaged BB4274 Men Navy Blue White Sale Ireland, who will be tried separately.

Prosecutors said Ortiz’s trial will take about four to six weeks and Wallace’s trial will take about six to eight weeks.

Wallace’s attorneys requested a Feb. 1 trial date. But the judge suggested pushing the date to March Cheap Nike Air Force 1 Ultra Flyknit Mid Women Green White Ireland because of her schedule. Ortiz’s trial would start sometime late next spring.
