Electric Blue 46 From Russia With Lust



He told ESPN that he'd learned the pitch from his father, who taught him how to grip the ball with his fingernails on the seams, which prevented the ball from spinning, and caused it to move in confounding ways on its way to home plate. "He was a very good pitcher," Niekro said. "He hurt his arm one spring, didn't warm up good enough, couldn't throw a fastball anymore. Another coal miner taught him how to throw the knuckleball."

He received a master's in piano performance from University of Michigan, Ann Arbor by playing Bach, Schubert, Chopin and Ravel. His compositions included works for chamber groups and full orchestra. He also wrote and performed with electronic manipulations through the Kyma digital sound-design system, which altered what he performed on an acoustic piano.


Though a product of an upper-middle-class education (attending the prestigious Sherborne School, obtaining a degree from Oxford University), Cornwell's childhood was actually unsettling. His father was a con man jailed for insurance fraud; his mother left the family when he was five. The disparity between appearances and reality would instill in him a familiarity with secrecy, which came in handy as a clandestine operative. Having already worked with MI5 while at Oxford, after teaching at Eton he joined the foreign service, stationed in Germany on the frontlines of the Cold War, under the cover of a British Embassy functionary.


Yeager's life was marked by more than just luck. The retired Air Force Brigadier General from a small town in the hills of West Virginia enlisted in the Army Air Corps after graduating from high school in 1941. Despite becoming severely airsick during his first airplane ride, he signed up for a program that allowed enlisted men to become fliers. He was an ace fighter pilot during World War II, shooting down 13 German planes on 64 missions. He was shot down over German-held France, but escaped with the help of French partisans.


Hsieh joined the dot.com craze after graduating from Harvard, and in 1998 sold an online venture, Link/Exchange, to Microsoft, walking away with more than $30 million, when he was just 24 years old. Soon after, he joined a start-up (then called shoesite.com), and rose to become CEO.


Over a two-decade career Argentine soccer great Diego Maradona (October 30, 1960-November 25, 2020) captivated fans around the world with a bewitching style of play that was all his own. Bold, fast and utterly unpredictable, Maradona was a master of attack, juggling the ball easily from one foot to the other as he raced upfield. Dodging and weaving with his low center of gravity, he shrugged off countless rivals and often scored with a devastating left foot, his most powerful weapon.


Scottish actor Sean Connery (August 25, 1930-October 31, 2020) defined the role of Ian Fleming's secret agent James Bond, which he first played in the 1962 film "Dr. No." Suave, quick-witted, violent, and a smooth operator with the ladies as he repeatedly saved the world from Iron Curtain operatives and power-mad oligarchs, Connery set the shaken-not-stirred big-screen template for Bond. He was, indisputably, the best.


Apart from playing MI6's most valuable agent with a license to kill, Connery starred in innumerable films that captured his heroic glamour. Rarely playing a villain, Connery was featured as a defecting Soviet submarine captain in "The Hunt for Red October"; a sleuthing monk in "The Name of the Rose"; an aged Robin Hood in "Robin and Marion"; a wizened elder in the fantasy "Highlander"; and Indiana Jones' professorial dad in "Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade." He played a folkloric Kipling figure in "The Man Who Would Be King," and a North African warlord in "The Wind and the Lion."


After his playing career, he spent years as an announcer for the Reds, Giants and A's, along with ESPN, NBC, ABC and CBS. He was an analyst for ESPN's Sunday night telecasts from 1990-2010, and won two Sports Emmy Awards.


Reportedly written by Nash while recovering from cataract surgery, "I Can See Clearly Now" was a story of overcoming hard times that itself raised the spirits of countless listeners, with its swelling pop-reggae groove, promise of a "bright, bright sunshiny day" and Nash's gospel-styled exclamation midway, "Look straight ahead, nothing but blue skies!", a backing chorus lifting the words into the heavens.


Gene Simmons, of Kiss, produced a demo recording of the group, in a session that Van Halen felt was awkward. "I quickly learned that I didn't like overdubbing," he told Guitar World in 1996. "Gene said, 'Here's what you do in the studio -- you play your rhythm parts on one track, and your solo parts on another.' I remember feeling very uncomfortable with separating my lead and fill parts from my rhythm parts. On stage, I'd gotten used to doing both simultaneously. I'd just noodle in-between chord lines. Because it was my first time in a recording studio, it didn't occur to me to say, 'Can't I play just the way I play live?'"


Hall of Fame pitcher Bob Gibson (November 9, 1935-October 2, 2020), at 6'2", seemed so much taller on the mound, and even spent the 1957-58 season with the Harlem Globetrotters before turning his full attention to baseball. A two-time Cy Young Award-winner, Gibson dominated the game during his 17 seasons with the St. Louis Cardinals. He struck out more than 200 batters nine times and led the National League in shutouts four times, finishing with 56 in his career. Averaging 19 wins a year from 1963-72, he finished 251-174 with a 2.91 ERA, and was only the second pitcher to reach 3,000 strikeouts, and set a modern standard for excellence when he finished the 1968 season with a 1.12 ERA, the best for any starter in the post-1920s era.


Reddy grew up in a show-business family in Melbourne, winning a contest that would launch her recording career in the United States, where judges told her she didn't sound "commercial" enough. Yet her recording of "I Don't Know How to Love Him," from the musical "Jesus Christ Superstar," led to a 10-year recording contract with Capitol. Seven of her albums with the label were certified gold or platinum.


She retired from public life in the 1990s, she told the Associated Press, in part because of the enormous success of "I Am Woman": "I was shown a modern American history high-school textbook, and a whole chapter on feminism and my name and my lyrics (were) in the book. And I thought, 'Well, I'm part of history now. And how do I top that? I can't top that.' So, it was an easy withdrawal."


Burned out from touring, DeVito left the group in 1970. Saddled with debts, he did manual labor in Las Vegas until he returned to music as a record producer. His childhood friend Joe Pesci also wrangled him bit parts in films such as "Casino."


In a sign of her willingness to seek consensus in the court's chambers, Ginsburg revealed to "Sunday Morning" that she credited her long and happy marriage to a piece of advice from her mother-in-law: "She said, 'Dear, in every good marriage it helps sometimes to be a little deaf.' And I followed that advice in dealing not only with my dear spouse, but in dealing even with my colleagues."


The democrats Killed JFK like they killed Abraham Lincoln and because they could not kill Trump the greatest US President in recent years is why they vilified and attacked him 24/7 like wild fucking savages, fabricated a Russia hoax and embraced Covid probably brought here by democrats so desperate as all else failed willing to kill millions of Americans from Covid and why democrats are killing even more Americans with fentanyl over doses that the left wing media ignores Biden and hunter corruption proof they above the law.


Hello my name is Julie from Colorado USA . I want to tell the world about the great and mighty spell caster called DR UWAIFO my husband was cheating on me and no longer committed to me and our kids, when I asked him what the problem was he told me he has no love for me and wanted a divorce I was so heart broken I cried all day and night but he left home. I was looking for something online when I saw an article about how the great and powerful DR UWAIFO has helped so many in similar situations like mine. His email address was there so I sent him an email telling him about my problem. He told me my husband shall return back to me within 24 hours. I did everything he asked me to do the next day. To my greatest surprise my husband came back home and was crying and begging me to forgive him and accept him back. This was the great work Dr UWAIFO did for me and my kids.

your 0pinion is not well thought out . There is corrupt on both sides, and the government on both sides have just as many faults as the other .The only way to get compassion from either side is get rid of rich and get rid of poor and let the people do what is to be done with no money involved at all.This would eliminate greed, favoritism, and control, and all the bad that comes from being in power. Now on the positive side do things in a humble humane way . and everyone take a lesson what it means to be human, and everyone learn how to listen ,not hear but listen . Oh and the most important get them to be honest completely . Then you would have a government that was worth leading the people . But until that happens all politicians are evil and corrupt so get off your high horse and stop defending either side .


Nancy polosi and her husband has made MILLIONS from Government insider information, along with Maxine Waters, Eric Swalwell, Chuckie Shumer , rep. SHIFT but oh these are all Democrats that have made millions from the Government!!


You are a blinded hateful God hater! While God created us all equal, He is no Communist! We all are sinners in need of the only Savior and Messiah of mankind! God loves us, but He hates our sin and rebellion against Him! God is Holy and Just! He wants to bless us, however when we continue to reject Jesus Christ and His Inspired, Inerrant and Infallible Word, we suffer from the consequences of our sin against Him!! Ask God to Reveal Himself to you, and seek Him (Jesus Christ) with all of your heart! In His Holy Word!! Ask Him to save you from your sins! Repent (turn from attempting to be your own god, and doing your own will)! Proverbs 1:7 The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge: but fools dispise Wisdom and instruction. 22 How long, ye simple ones, will you love simplicity? and the scorners delight their scorning, and fools hate knowledge? 23 Turn you (Repent) at My reproof: be, I will pour out My Spirit unto you, I will make known My words unto you. 24 Because I have called, and ye refused; I have stretched out My Hand, and no man regarded; 25 But ye have set at nought all My Counsel, and would none of My reproof: 26 I also will laugh at your calamity; I will mock when your fear cometh; 27 When your fear cometh as desolation, and your destruction cometh as a whirlwind; when distress and anguish cometh upon you. 28 Then shall they call upon Me, but I will not answer; they shall seek Me early, but they shall not find Me: 29 For that they hated knowledge, and did not choose the fear of the LORD: 30 They would none of My Counsel: they despised all of My reproof. 31 Therefore shall they eat of the fruit of their own way, and be filled with their own devices. 32 For the turning away of the simple shall slay them, and the prosperity of fools shall destroy them. 33 But whoso hearkeneth unto Me shall dwell safely, and shall be quiet from fear of evil. 2:1 My son, if thou wilt receive My words, and hide My Commandments with thee; 2 So that thou incline thine ear unto Wisdom, and apply thine heart to understanding; 3 Yea, if thou criest after knowledge, and liftest up thy voice for understanding; 4 If thou seekest her as silver, and searchest for her as for hid treasures; 5 Then shalt thou understand the fear of the LORD, and find the knowledge of God. 6 For the LORD giveth wisdom: out of His Mouth cometh knowledge and understanding. 7 He layeth up sound Wisdom for the righteous: He is a Buckler to them that walk uprightly. 8 He Keepeth the paths of judgment, and preserveth the way of His saints. 9 Then shalt thou understand righteousness, and judgment, and equity; yea, every good path. 10 When Wisdom entereth into thine heart, and knowledge is pleasant unto thy soul; 11 Discretion shall preserve thee, understanding shall keep (guard/protect) thee: 12 To deliver thee from the way of the evil man, from the man that speaketh froward things; 13 who leave the paths of uprightness, to walk in the ways of darkness; 14 who rejoice to do evil, and delight in the frowardness of the wicked; 15 Whose ways are crooked; and they froward in their paths: 3:1 My son, forget not My law; but let thine heart keep My Commandments: 2 For length of days, and long life, and peace, shall they add to thee. 3 Let not mercy and Truth forsake thee: bind them about thy neck; write them upon the table of thine heart: 4 So shalt thou find favour and good understanding in the Sight of God and man. 5 Trust in the LORD with all thine heart; and do not lean unto thine own (human reasoning) understanding. 6 In all thy ways acknowledge Him, and He shall direct thy paths. 7 Be not wise in thine own eyes: fear the LORD, and depart from evil (sin). 8 It shall be health to thy navel, and marrow to thy bones. 9 Honour the LORD with thy substance, and with the first fruits of all thine increase: 10 So shall thy barns be filled with plenty, and thy presses shall burst out with new wine. 11 My son, despise not the chastening of the LORD; neither be weary of His correction: 12 For whom the LORD loveth He correcteth; even as a father the son in whom he delighted.
