I had four, solid five minute rounds in a room that ended up feeling like we were in satan asshole. My Gi is just a wet blanket that won allow any heat to vent out. Looking back, I impressed only by the fact that I managed to have a 10 minute conversation in the locker room after training; before ultimately failing as a human being..
A single strand of burned out Christmas tree lights weighs almost nothing in the hand. But a hay bale sized block? That weighs around 2,200 pounds, according to Raymond Li, the fresh faced but steely general manager of Yong Chang Processing, a scrap metal processor in the southern Chinese town of Shijiao.I am standing between him and three such bales, or 6,600 pounds of Christmas tree lights that Americans tossed into recycling bins, or dropped off at the Salvation Army, or sold to someone in a “We Buy Junk” truck. Eventually they found their way to a scrapyard that pressed them into a cube and shipped them off to Raymond Li’s Christmas tree light recycling factory.Raymond is anxious to show me how it works.But first off, he needs to tell me that, though 6,600 pounds might seem like a large volume of American Christmas tree lights to find in a small Chinese village, it isn’t.
Should there be a vote? I was there, at the polls. So were a lot of people. We voted. In November, technology executives from Facebook, Twitter and Google testified before US congress regarding suspected efforts to interfere with the 2016 US election.

It is estimated that the posts were seen by approximately 150 million Americans, roughly half of all Americans eligible to vote.
This fall I’m putting on another hat church growth. Seriously? Eddie Gibbs, my mentor for the last seven years, is retiring this week. That deserves a post of its own but Eddie is not leaving Fuller, he is stepping down from faculty. So, by all means let preach to other countries about slavery and let tell our high street stores not to use suppliers who keep their workers in servitude. Then let all go out and buy a new outfit to celebrate what good people we are. After all, it’s a bargain, isn’t it?.
