There's a service called "Cairn" that offers something similar for hiking gear. A few of my friends have subscribed, and love it. To me it just screams "Pay us to send you stuff that hasn't sold elsewhere!"
I noticed this as well. Ran the first guy's name through Google as a curiosity -- the guy has quite a few priors, including previous arrests on weapons charges.
The law does seem a little over the top. But I can see how this guy probably didn't come across as a fellow driving home from...
BF bought us second row seats to The Smithereens last night. The venue has generally been gracious enough to allow cameras, so I brought my P&S along for the show. A couple shots from the evening:

The Smithereens haven't traditionally...
Was reading this and typing something I read a couple days ago from a friend.
She works at a university....one of the big ones. They have been running MACTAC training and exercises with the campus PD. She says that the Chief was very graphic, and that many staff left the room crying. She...
Salute to all who served!
Loved seeing all the photos on Facebook as well. Plus there were some very touching stories that were very touching...even amusing. These were two of my faves:
"My dad joined the Army for, you know, freedom and stuff.
Actually I think he enlisted to get the hell...
Nerves of steel -- she's a combat medic in the Guard.
Son was unharmed. Mom is badly hurt and remains hospitalized.
Scumbag perp arrested.
Mother fends off intruders while breastfeeding 4-month-old son
Just for a little more detail, as Steve said the term profesor or profesora means 'teacher'. The term is used as widely as 'teacher' is used among in the English speaking world. Literally, it means "one who professes", as in one who declares (something) publicly.
The term for an academic...
I've heard similar numbers, to hold for at least 15 seconds, and holding for 30 seconds is even better. Another overlooked component to flexibility is strength. Proper training with weight-bearing exercises can do wonders for flexibility.
I train anything -- martial arts, kettle bells, jogging -- barefoot whenever possible. That means managing the associated issues whenever possible. And I hike 10-30 hours a week in all conditions....dry, rainy, muddy, icy, snowy. If you fall during training, what happens? Maybe you mess...
Agreed. Strength and balance.
Shoes matter little, by the way. I see this on trail all the time, esp in winter. Two people in identical boots walking an identical path, one can walk the path assuredly while the other slips or cannot do it without traction.
A hiker friend of mine in Colorado is scrambling up and down all kinds of rocks in hopes of testing with the Nashua PD in August. Will you be joining him? Starting pay is $49K+

NH RESIDENCY IS NOT REQUIRED.
A fair amount of controversy over the last 3 years has been focused on the MRAPP vehicles (ie: the Lenco Bearcat). Before the controversy blew up, a Lenco YouTube promo showed SWAT teams drills in camo and a town official in NH proclaimed "We're getting our own tank!" This caused both...
A friend of mine is an assistant instructor at a school in New England. She also an adjunct (part-time) professor at a local college;
With the blessing of both her head instructor and her college boss, she'll be taking the summer off from both jobs and teaching at various youth summer camps...
So my takeaway from this is Instructor B is on a bit of power trip.
B wants to by C's school.
B wants authority over who can test and who cannot, and appears to be forcing C's hand
B may think he can run the show and put bodies in the school better than C (and perhaps he does. You don't have...
Martial arts skills of the defender have nothing to do with use of force. This is a dangerous misconception. This is what gives rise to the Hollywood-addicted people wringing their hands and whining at peace officers asking "Why can't the cop just shoot the gun out of the teenager's hand?"
Yes! As unintuitive as it sounds, it is the same thing - a surface layer created by a chemical reaction over time.
Stonework can have patina as well. Its said that the White Mountains of New Hampshire got their name from the snow, or their light color, or both. The light color of the rock...
They are indeed, patina refers to many types of metal reactions. If the Statue of Liberty were rusted copper, she would be red in color.
However, she is out in a body of salt (NaCl) water (H20)
This reacts with her copper (Cu) to form hydrated cupric chloride (CuCl2*2(H20)) -- which is...
SDlively, what sort of thing are you looking for with your training?
Are you looking to earn a black belt, hopefully as soon as possible?
Are you looking to try your hand at competitive and/or MMA-style fighting?
Are you looking for something with a rich history?
