Andrew Ding : I wonder how would they do as linemen

Christopher Gould : More stress on the training aspect needed - they work out about 3 or 4 hours a day, putting their bodies under unbearable strain, especially in the repeated practice bouts and charging exercises... (and they do go to the gym in their spare time too).

Shourik Banerjee : How does Newton’s 3rd law apply directly to winning a match?

Rose Lin : Promotion includes all activities designed to inform, persuade and influence people when they are making the decision to buy. Promotion is made up of: Advertising • non-personal communication transmitted through mass media Publicity • free promotion through news stories in newsletters, newspapers, magazines and television Sales Promotion • all forms of communication not found in advertising and personal selling, including direct mail, coupons, volume discounts, sampling, rebates, demonstrations, exhibits, sweepstakes, trade allowances, samples and point-ofpurchase displays In designing a promotional plan, clearly spell out: • Which objectives to use. It is possible to have more than one objective, but it is recommended that a company target its audience or run the risk of losing focus. • What to say • Who to say it to • Criteria used to measure success Suggestions for Inexpensive Promotion Some inexpensive, appropriate and effective methods of promotion for the new food processor include advertising through: • Personal selling • Product demonstrations • Direct mail • Business cards • Yellow Page listing • Seminars • Newsletters • Contests • Flyers • Statement stuffers • Window banners • Greeting cards • Sports team sponsor • Home parties • Ethnic services—languages spoken Of course, one of the best free methods of promotion is good “word of mouth."

FLAME4564 : good point. These guys I belive are mainly stars for being a combo of both athletic and big.

tim icen : most of Americas resources are imported. EXAMPLE TIME oil pets Yes oil is one the oil rigs in nevada are there just so usa can point and yell "look see were independent from foreign oil"

annie countryman : are you serious america?! saying that this guys are fat too?! you guys cant move your ass from your chair holding a remote control of you tv... But ths guys can knock your fucking house down alone,.,! BIG DIFFERENCE ! wow., you guys are joking right?!

JAJAMAN : they are all super healthy. Not like fat americans with nothing but fat, these guys have huge muscles beneath them

RubberWilbur : Wrong as the western diet is spreading other countries are getting just as fat (i.e. Europe). Chinese are gaining weight faster than anyone. Europeans have been removing the germ from grain for over 2 decades now (flour, white sugar, junk food) and are a little more adapted to it. Other cultures like China never have eaten this food and it's effecting them faster and harder (diabetes, cardio disease, etc)

Cardiacs : And people say America is fat.
