Italy's World Cup team, the World Cup 2010 defending champion and the four-time World Cup Soccer champions of the world come into the 2010 World Cup with a target on their back as defending champions, while simultaneously being viewed as weak by almost the entire world, including Italy. Italy is the second most successful national team in the history of the World Cup having won four titles (1934, 1938, 1982, and 2006) just one fewer than Brazil Italy's World Cup 2010 team includes many of the same core players on the 2006 Italy World Cup champion team, returning for a second go at winning the ultimate World Cup 2010 trophy.Italy's blue, azzurro, in Italian due to the "Azzurro Savoia" (Savoy Blue), the color traditionally linked to the royal dynasty which unified Italy in 1861, and maintained in the official standard of the President of the Italian Republic. In 2006, Italy's Serie A was embroiled in scandal and Italy was expected to be dumped out of the competition quickly. The midfield were derided as having no creativity and the strikers were aging. Italy, of course, went on to top their group, beat a sensational Germany, and put on a defensive clinic against France to win the Cup on penalties. Italy seems old and weak. They haven't impressed in warm-ups against Mexico or Switzerland, and play maker Andrea Pirlo (calf injury) could miss quite a few games. But, in the end, the Italians are the defending champions, and while they do have a penchant for giving lazy performances when the title isn't on the line, they also make it a habit of proving people wrong. Italy 's first World Cup 2010 game is today 2:30 ET against Paraguay.Meet the Italy 2010 World Cup...
I admit it, I am a competitive athlete. Make no bones about it. I can be sweet and nice and open to collaborative efforts in business, but when on the racing line, I am a tiger. I thirst and crave winning in athletic performances. I don't apologize for it either. I even got ticked at an athletic director for paying women athletes less than male counterparts for the same race back in the 1990's. "Equal pay for equal sweat." That is my motto.I love watching the Olympics. There was even a point and time in my life where team mates thought I would have been there for running. But no point hashing times gone by. Some of my team mates have like, Kim Gallagher , a 2 time Olympian and medaler in the 800m run in 84' and 88'. RIP Kim.The time is today. And, I am loving what some athletic apparel companies are doing for causes. First and foremost is a shout out to Moving Comfort for their Support Your Girls Campaign. Full Discloser as they were a client of mine.Another is DEKA Athletics, in Atlanta, GA who carries athletic and footwear, as they announce that Alp-n-Rocks, a ski athletic apparel company has launched a fabulous cause marketing campaign. They recently spear-headed a scholarship program. Here is what Alp-n-Rocks is doing (directly from the DEKA Athletic latest blogpost):"Born in the Swiss Alps and raised on Sunset Strip, Alp-n-Rock offers the ...
YUMMY! I love breakfast and could eat breakfast food at all three meals. My favorite is buttermilk pancakes smothered with real butter and maple syrup. And if you are a pancake lover too, then don't forget February 23rd is National Pancake Day. Here is a good reason why you should head on over to your local IHOP for a stack of flapjacks too. In celebration of National Pancake Day, IHOP will give you a free stack of 3 pancakes and all they ask is that you make a donation to children's hospitals through Children's Miracle Network. Like IHOP's slogan, "Come Hungry. Leave Happy" and Feel Good about Contributing to Children....
Who wore the Blugirl by Blumarine Spring 2010 RTW blue leopard print strapless dress better?
This fashion face-off is between:
Fergie, who wore the dress at the presentation for the 2010 FIFA World Cup kick-off celebration concert on June 9, 2010
Katy Perry, who styled the dress with a pink Juicy Couture belt on the cover of the February 2010 issue of Glamour magazine
So which of these two singers wore the blue leopard print dress with a ruffly skirt better for you – Fergie or Katy Perry?
It might be a bit unfair to hand this win to Katy Perry because she had been styled professionally for a magazine in her picture while Fergie’s picture is just a candid shot. I think both women look lovely in their dresses actually, and I love how both made the dress their own (Fergie with her rockin’ gladiator sandals and Katy with her pink heart belt).
I searched for the exact dress online but sadly, it’s either sold out or not stocked in online boutiques. I did however manage to find a couple of dresses which, in addition to this other leopard print dress post, should provide a nice selection of blue leopard print dresses:
Do you know how to keep yourself healthy? It can be confusing with headlines coming at you.? They said Hormone Replacement Therapy is bad for your heart, now maybe it isn’t. They say eat soy, but now they say not too much. Should you take an aspirin everyday? What new test is right for you? What about vitamin E or Fish Oil or the latest diet pill?
How do you know what to do to keep yourself healthy? Go back to the basics!
Pay Attention: If you don’t pay attention to your health, don’t worry – it will go away.
Prevent disease by seeing your doctor and controlling your risk factors such as blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar.
In addition, be brave and schedule the screening tests. A recent study by the National Cancer Institute and U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention found a steady decline in the number of women getting regular mammograms. Finding cancer early through screenings like mammogram and colonoscopy is essential to survival. In this case what you don’t know CAN hurt you.
Be Active: A study reported in the American Journal of Epidemiology is just a recent example of something we all know: people who are active are more healthy than those who sit around.
An active lifestyle doesn’t mean you have to spend your life in the gym. You simply need to move your body thirty to sixty minutes per day (more if you are trying to lose weight.)
Doing chores, walking the dog and using a pedometer are all great ways to be more active. Being active will help control your blood pressure, cholesterol, blood sugar an...

我很喜歡Wren這個Fall Lookbook的Mix & Match呢～！個人很喜歡潑墨的感覺，很Artistic～哈哈！Oversized cardigan配潑墨的深藍denim，再配上白色的oxford shoes加畫家帽不就是一個畫家的裝扮嗎？！好好看呀～～!!!我會好好參考一下！ Earth colour & denim應該還會流行一段時間吧！當然還有長青的豹紋啦！現在大部分品牌都已經開始大減價了，是時間找尋一下秋冬的單品了～！秋天你可以快點來嗎？我很掛念你啊！！！
