'Force of the Future': career flexibility, fewer moves

AFT - A detailed blueprint for how to rebuild the military personnel system has landed on Defense Secretary Ash Carter's desk.

Mario Balotelli set for Italian air force-style behaviour clause in Milan contract

Mario Balotelli will have a good behaviour clause inserted into his contract with Milan which will ban extravagant haircuts and clothing and commit him to a healthy lifestyle.

It appears like he's not going to be appearing on North American television screens for awhile only in Europe of course but does anyone care? he's kinda famous you know. I first witnessed the Italian appear in the FIFA Soccer World Cup in South Africa then Brazilia. But following last weekends selection process in front of Russian executives and investors World Cup soccer isn't taking the upper hand it's replaced boring air time especially on the weekend after that sorry sales pitch social networking is buzzing and/or get outta here to be lectured about your lifestyle. In a separate incidence soccer fans should maybe change how they share information following this controversy which involved FIFA president and members of his staff certain individuals just don't know where else to turn to for support however demeaning a task around God knows who. I didn't know what to think when FIFA granted the cup to Russia, there was trouble before that moment things have calmed down more minutes added to the hour. Not to sound selfish but lately it's become uncommon to go places I guess the more migrants they arrest and harass the worse it become what is all this nonsense? I never been to Milan. Headlines posted below about this next World Cup an event which looks grand, I don't want to make anyone do anything but do something just click and read. Russia won the rights to stage the 2018 World Cup under Blatter’s auspices. That 2010 decision, along with the award to Qatar of the 2022 tournament, is the subject of a Swiss criminal investigation running parallel to the US action.

Singapore leak four second half goals away to 2022 World Cup hosts Qatar

After it was over it just doesn't sound like soccer is organized no credit was given to events which lead to the South African World Cup. I wrote about it on my blog, Russia isn't obviously going to mismanage the soccer biz their looking for profits which I had expected North America would experience unfortunately biz doesn't share anything the audience get's counted the problems don't get repaired like boom. Swiss judicial authorities are investigating the awarding of the 2018 and 2022 World Cups to Russia and Qatar as part of a far-reaching corruption scandal that has also raised questions about the 2010 event in South Africa. Evidence of corruption this perhaps means taking the World Cup to places it doesn't need to go to for instance whoever had it before the Brazilians, and there aren't any jobs the World Cup is bigger than some may think of it to be. I was guessing to maybe promo the brazilian World Cup event by mentioning a cheap tournament by reducing the cost doesn't anyone want to offer cash and coupons anymore, just go to where it's played. There just isn't any money some do whatever it takes to make ends meet but as far as I know Mario Balotelli wears a jersey for Italia and he's getting into all these problems I don't know what to expect anymore. It doesn't sound good but he's a cool guy intelligent soccer player black coaches loosing their jobs looking around I don't find it ironic I opened this blog to begin with. There is nothing to do now I knew it was over when the Malaysian Airliners went down I missed the "On the run tour" we're taken by suprise, they showed it on television who knew Dutch Safety Board Investigation needs to provide answers quickly. Ukraine and the west suspect it was destroyed by a surface-to-air missile fired by Russian soldiers or Russia-backed separatist rebels fighting in the area.Your also welcome to look at these interesting articles posted below.

@the_padded_room

@the_padded_room I will always remember this interested? having noticed the posting on Tumblr i'm not going to let anything slide because I always want to wear nice shoes but when they got me some wack paired shoes problems started. When I went to the concert I wasn't necessarily looking to be wearing a cheap pair of shoes with some outfit but it turns out everything went okay I don't know too much about fly sneakers but I try. Check out this pair obtained by rapper Trinidad James but i'm over here I been to the mall the shoe store had gotye a wall. It's back to school certainly walking thru the Galleria mall watching folks step out after shopping listen driving up at the stop light I realize I need directions. I really needed money that day a nice lady walks over after responding at this shopping center to give me directions i'm inside the car recall traffic how to get in there I ask? up to this point I believe it's not my fault. But I came all this way to get an application for work, I was sitting outside the store on the first floor writing stuff down on the application when suddenly I start to see bling you know the armored truck I knew what time it was. Dallas is a nifty place to drive thru it's a typical excuse not having friends to follow know what I mean??? no bill I could had parked close by walking out and onto the next shopping mall. After arriving something tells me I made the mistake of going to the big city when really all I needed to do is exit thirteen but like always this story must come to an end.

Germany's far-right movement stirs ghosts of gruesome past

Mashable - to respond this shows how terrifying elaborate these marches can be but since they got coming the election for next world leader, I don't have much to say i've seen the response from the previous races and we just sit back and let the ball roll. The politics is interesting I must say they covered the elected individuals and held tea parties however, it's very late to look back and regret that these were the ones chosen to represent. At the moment the news is all I listen to I got my eyes wide open but I dislike the way someone a stranger can enter into the public eye and is followed by viewers who claim him/her is a saint. They think i'm just going to walk in to make a selection, for someone unemployed I don't want to make those same mistakes. To just think about how we ignored the bickering during the morning drive to work and favored the social media, the celebration, the trafficking and sports media, everything about capitalism. As each hours goes by I seem to think i'm getting nowhere but to watch the current elected leaders controlling the situation by stealing our hopes and dreams assuming their out back for flights. Mis on juhtunud with that lack of progress and rumor mill, sourcing used to be interesting it isn't a game life is serious. I've met people who came across like they were classmates or fellow citizens they're terrorists i'm saying this because just look at this guy, Obama acts GQ. Why isn't he acting Hawaiian? the man is on television to joke openly about various things putting viewers to shame. Is he seriously doing the right thing? whatever happened to the weekly address? not picking up on governance the way he should Barack Obama is out of control the elements that placed him back in office aren't on our side he's not for our freedom it's negative but there's something wrong he's done. I have to support the negativity look at me i'm powerless, without income, I get sick but I may as well forget coming to this country with all these problems no unemployment income etc. But I went to school I see how they put notebooks on the table and teach about history, government, mathematics the country should stop doing this to the world not like Europeans, Germans but like founder and explorer. Sometimes we make mistakes what to say about this government is unknown because I don't believe it happened I just seem to think he's out of control I got nowhere to go and so do others like me. I use computers and the internet but with all these messages cops cannot stop harassing it takes effort but often some don't get it cannot do it their locking up African-Americans kids aren't reading. I just think it's not ironic that i'm speaking to police and telling them not to arrest me, perhaps if they think instead of act maybe the relapsing and the shouting will end we can sit and become free like we ought to.

NAS RAPS ABOUT THE SPIRIT OF COGNAC AND HIP-HOP CULTURE

This is a person who's very talented yet very opinionated about crime likewise his/her drink of choice i'm not a famous musician only thing I can do is chill and/or indulge in these conversations about food, liquor, beer I find the rapper Nas to be somewhat of an intelligent republican. Equally true was his album which I located within the record shop I however was unable to obtain it of course it's jamming standing outside of the record store. But what about a Martini? and what about Bombay Sapphire? the brand I selected and would request be added to the list of contenders. Sometime ago I purchased them from our local wine store having made a selection after noticing the balance on my account the evening coming to a close, where is this new store I heard so much about? they tell me where it moved to and I quickly left. Certain liquor brands they want to show and prove to be the best I also seem to appreciate imported liquor correspondingly with the infamous Tex-Mex dish. I would rather walk out with the London Gin which offers a better taste for your budget it's well crafted and the bottle resembles the Russian brands it's well worth enjoying if your under budget and unable to bounce on short notice ask the bartender.

Rant: For Ronda Rousey, UFC 190 Is All About The Sisterhood

- I don't exactly know when the MMA intends on getting out of those women this upcoming fight they're promoting it and both fighters seem to dislike entering their weight adding to the attention it's brought to the sport event. I however would want to add that it's alright for humans to argue and to box each other and mixed martial arts only get's dangerous after someone get's hurt why all the confusion? it doesn't seem to be promoting self-defense awareness just health concerns. The fact is today everyone wants to be wild and dangerous i've noticed on some occasion the Policemen in public I guess it's okay out in public you've got nobody coming to help it's outside at the mall nobody to call you out in fact their cooking witches the individuals creating trouble when she became famous doing that you know what I mean? what to do next there's nowhere to go but down. After watching Ronda Rousey on screen during Furious 7 I kinda imagined it was impossible but that's what people look forward to these days sitting down enjoying the impossible despite the cloud it places on their fans. I don't really want to discuss who won the fight but I noticed the actress Michelle Rodriguez showing viewers how stuff gets done. The film took in $68 million I guess that's what the stars expect or look forward to no matter the consequence of media involvement so an actress in a movie generally nobody would care but it's not interesting to find celebrities in films I dislike seeing the two getting mixed together. I understand she can fight but her popularity is foreign when you consider the reaction to the film indeed during the filming I heard about the crash reports about safety standards injuries on the film set, she appears desperate the movie is controversial Ronda Rousey needs to stop doing that she's going to ruin everything. But I just want to put it out there it's not what their saying because I went to see it and it turned out awful. It appears beauty does help get these celebrities more exposure but how when the reality is rarely can you meet someone famous, because the box office isn't going to help people stuck outside partying never paid the bills it just goes to show how risky attending movies can become when you under estimate someone's intentions. Misfortune, leave that to the lost people because there's no time for such nonsense I guess I shouldn't mistrust the sport but MMA promotes violence what does she have? compare them make it work doesn't seem right very terrible. Some act tough running with strangers if you introduce yourself to me buddy I will respect you but out there it's a different world we got enemies, so i'm here to tell you even if their strangers they could be dangerous trust nobody watch what you say it's cool you gotta do what you gotta do maybe need protection avoid trouble makers.
