Another item Price brought back with him was a Hacky Sack. Although it was invented in 1972, Wham O toys didn’t release Hacky Sacks to the American public until 1983. There are a lot of tricks that are available with this foot bag bouncing game, and it was wildly popular throughout the 80s. There are Guinness world records for doubles, men’s and women’s singles.

Price also brought back a boom box. Developed in the late 1970s and reaching its heyday in 1983, the boom box started off as a simple portable radio and quickly became as large as

A point toe remember

Your question: I read somewhere that pointing your toes out on leg extensions better hits the inner quads and that pointing your toes in better hits the outer quads. Yet on an online message board, a competitive bodybuilder said that turning the feet in or out on leg
Michael Kors outlet extensions is a waste of time. Which is correct?

The background: The leg muscles of the quads and hamstrings are composed of several muscles that work together to extend and flex the legs. While you cannot solely isolate one area of the quads or hams by altering the way you perform an exercise, such as the way you turn your feet (toes pointed in or out), you can place more emphasis on a certain area of the muscle.

The quads are made up of four muscles that originate on different parts of the femur (thigh bone) and hips but converge on one common tendon that crosses the front of the knee, and they work together to extend the leg at the knee joint. These muscles include the vastus lateralis (outer quad), the vastus medialis (the teardrop shaped muscle just above the inside of the knee), the rectus femoris (middle quad muscle on
Michael Kors discounts the front of the thigh) and the vastus intermedius (middle quad muscle under the rectus femoris). Before exercise scientists conducted bodybuilding research, some pioneer bodybuilders were smart enough to note that if they turned their feet out about 45 degrees while doing leg extensions, they felt it more in the medialis, and if they turned their feet in about 30 degrees, they felt it more in the lateralis.

The hamstrings are composed of three muscles that originate on the hipbone and cross the back of the knee the biceps femoris (outer hams), semimembranosus and semitendinosus (which collectively make up the inner hams). Opposite of the quads, some bodybuilders found that turning their feet out during leg curls better worked the outer hams, while turning their feet in better hit the inner hams.

Despite these discoveries, many scientists scoffed
cheap Michael Kors handbags outlet at the idea, saying it’s impossible to place greater emphasis on one area of the thigh muscles over the others. So who’s right?

Get Huge, Ripped, and Perform Better Than Ever With the Rock Hard Challenge Workout

The research: Some of the earliest research on the effect of turning the feet in or out on leg exercises was performed by pioneering exercise scientist Dr. Per Tesch in the 1990s and published in his book Target Bodybuilding (Human Kinetics, 1999). He used MRI (magnetic
fake Michael Kors resonance imaging) technology to capture images of the muscles being exercised in toes out and toes in positions. He noted, as the aforementioned bodybuilders did, that turning the toes in utilized more of the vastus lateralis and turning the toes out utilized the vastus medialis to a greater degree.

On leg curls, he found similar results to what the bodybuilders reported the "toes out" position utilized more of the outer hams and the "toes in" position used more inner hams. In addition, new research published in a 2008 issue of the Journal of Electromyography Kinesiology by researchers from Queens University at Kingston (Ontario, Canada) supports Tesch’s reports regarding foot position and hamstring muscle emphasis during training using EMG (electromyography) technology.

The Canadian researchers had test subjects perform the leg curl with their feet turned in, turned out and straight ahead while
cheap Michael Kors the amount of muscle activity in the inner and outer hams was measured using EMG. The scientists found that turning the feet in on the leg curl, as well as other exercises, significantly stressed the inner hamstring, while turning the feet out had the opposite effect: greater emphasis on the outer ham.

Turning point: Results show a 140% increase in muscle activity of the inner hams when the toes were pointed in and
Michael kors handbags outlet a 70% increase in muscle activity of the outer hams when the toes were pointed out.

For discussion:
cheap Michael Kors With two different technologies (MRI and EMG) supporting the notion that turning your feet in or out can change muscular emphasis during leg extensions and leg curls, it’s hard to argue that the technique doesn’t work. Anyone who still claims it doesn’t is simply misinformed. The bottom line is that turning your feet out on leg extensions hits more of the medialis, while turning them in hits more of the lateralis. For leg curls, it’s unequivocal that turning your feet out hits more of the outer hams and turning your feet in hits more of the inner hams.

Final thought: Whether you have well balanced thighs or thighs that need to be brought up in certain areas, turning your feet can be used to your advantage. Let’s say you have weak teardrops (medialis). When you do leg extensions, first warm up with your feet straight, then do two working sets with your toes pointed out, and finish with 1 2 sets with your toes back to the straight up position.

If you have well balanced thighs, you can change the way you do your
Michael Kors handbags outlet exercises every workout or every set. For example, on lying leg curls you can turn your feet in to better overload the semitendinosus and semimembranosus (inner hams) in one workout, then turn your toes out to better overload the biceps femoris (outer hams) in the next, then keep your feet straight in the third workout to evenly overload all three hamstring muscles. You could even change positions on each set.Articles Connexes:

Balenciaga’s New Designer

Fashion has a short memory. I know this. Everyone knows this. But still, I was a disappointed by all the speculation around Alexander Wang’s recent appointment to the role of creative director at
cheap Michael Kors handbags outlet the vaunted fashion house Balenciaga. The general perception was that the job offer had more to do with his being Chinese than his talent.

Now that Wang’s tenure at Balenciaga has officially begun, let’s get some facts straight. Wang is Chinese American. He was born in San Francisco, California to Taiwanese American parents and now makes his home in New York City. Before attending and dropping out of Parsons the New School of Design, he was educated in public and private schools in small suburban cities in the greater San Francisco Bay Area. population. In other words, he’s typically American. And not too long ago, fashion understood this. Indeed, it celebrated this fact.

Less than five years ago, giant news corporations like the Wall Street Journal and the New York Times were publishing splashy feature
michael kors handbags outlet stories about "the rise of Asian American fashion designers." Robin Givhan’s article on Michelle Obama’s sartorial sensibility for the New Yorker magazine was accompanied by a photograph of two of the most celebrated Asian American designers, Thakoon Panichgul and Jason Wu, with an American flag draped around both their shoulders. Almost immediately, Wang became Ghesquire’s presumptive successor. By the time Wang’s appointment was officially announced on December 3, 2012, it seemed that no one in fashion remembered that
Michael Kors handbags just a few years ago Wang and his cohort of Asian American designers were being praised as the new face of American fashion. Instead, racially motivated suspicions about Wang’s appointment had become the accepted truth.

In a piece for the New York Times, Suzy Menkes asserts:

Why would PPR choose a young designer of street smart clothing? The signs are that the increasing reach of Balenciaga demands a younger and easier to wear style. But the real secret behind Mr.
wholesale Michael Kors handbags outlet Wang’s appointment may lie in his ties to China. He speaks Mandarin, and
Michael Kors handbags outlet Balenciaga has expanded rapidly in China in recent years.

A Fashionista blog post claims, in its headline, it had "New Evidence That Alexander Wang’s Chinese Connections May Have Helped Land Him Balenciaga." The post itself offered no such evidence. More damning, still, it included a quote by
Michael Kors handbags outlet Pinault insisting that Wang’s "[family roots were] not a criteria for recruitment at all."

And just as recently as last week, a New York magazine article revived the myth by reporting that Wang’s longtime supporter, former editor in chief of Vogue Paris, Carine Roitfeld may be stepping in as a stylist at Balenciaga. (Recall that Wang built his multimillion dollar global business within less than a decade.) Instead, pundits bandied on about Wang’s
cheap Michael kors handbags outlet racial identity in vague and suggestively lurid terms like "Chinese connections." Tying Asian Americans to Asia as a way of casting aspersions on their rights to jobs has long been a way of tacitly suggesting that Asian Americans are not "real Americans," and so are less entitled to jobs that do not rightfully belong to them. By contrast, there was no mention of Michael Kors’ "Swedish connections" when he was named creative director of the legendary French fashion house Celine. Likewise, the ethnic backgrounds of Marc Jacobs and Tom Ford were never made issues when they took over at Louis Vuitton and Gucci, respectively. Anyone suggesting that ethnicity was a factor in these American designers’ appointments as heads of European companies would have been rightfully laughed off as joke.

It’s true that Wang recently opened a number of stores in China but he’s also planning to open retail outlets in Japan, Singapore, Korea and Thailand. His decision to expand his brand into Asia isn’t because he’s Chinese or Asian; it’s because he’s a fashion designer in
wholesale Michael Kors handbags outlet the early 21st century. Fashion companies are looking to the emerging middle class in these Asian countries to save the luxury industry. The list of illustrious and iconic European and American designers and retailers opening stores in Asia (while also closing many stores at home) is a long one. Some of them include Gucci, Louis Vuitton, Burberry, Hermes, Hugo Boss, Michael Kors, Donna Karan, the Gap, Levi’s and J. Crew. What’s more, Prada, Salvatore Ferragamo, Jimmy Choo and Coach all launched their IPOs in the Hong Kong Stock Exchange. Ralph Lauren Chief Operating Officer Roger Farah has called China’s emerging middle class "the world’s most important luxury customers." Like the heads of these companies, Wang sees the future of the fashion market in Asia, a business perspective shared almost universally throughout the fashion industry, and a business model he seems to be mastering. Not a bad reason for Pinault to hire him!

That so many inside and outside the fashion industry missed this basic truth suggests that they hold a terribly narrow view of not only what an American fashion designer looks like but also of the current global retail landscape.Articles Connexes:

“Steve Hilton is right – the public have a right to hold leaders accountable, part of which involves influencing how they are remunerated”

James Dempsey is a Research Fellow from the Politics and International Studies Department at the University of Warwick. His work focuses on the financial crisis and James is currently developing a theory of responsibility for the financial crisis that explains which individuals and institutions can be held accountable, and why, and the implications of these conclusions for obligations that arise out of the crisis.

He said:

“In an interview with the BBC today David Cameron’s former director of strategy, Steve Hilton, has said that the bosses of large banks should be paid no more than £100k to £200k a year, the same as senior civil servants. His reasoning is that any company that is so important to the economy that it would require a state bailout if it was at risk of failure should be considered part of the public sector, and so be subject to public control.
