I like John Canzano. I really dig him as a sports columnist and he is an alright sports radio personality. I often listen to him in the afternoons on Sports radio 95.5 the Game here in Portland. Last year was tough for the industry as a whole, as many clients scaled back spending. But R/GA was better positioned than most to weather the storm, thanks to its strength in non advertising businesses. Evidence its consulting practice, the fastest growing and most profitable part of R/GA.
During her 34 years at CNN, Moos has covered national and international issues and ground breaking news and features, but she soon carved out a niche with her off beat, thoughtful reporting on the quirkier aspects of life. Since the 1995 debut of “Making the MOOSt of It,” Moos has examined everything from three legged pantyhose to two headed turtles and recently has focused her reports on the quirky angles of the 2008 presidential campaign. Her reports now appear during Out Front as “MOOSt Unusual.”.
Many of his possessions are left to his friends, but the sign of the dream should not be taken from him” (Id.). The possession of a woven yard cord with the color white woven into it, when tied around the waist of a woman who had dreamed of a safe trip on a large lake, was believed to provide protection to her when traveling (Densmore 1979:80 81,111).

These temporary wanderers in particular seem the most dazzled by the chrome and glass of many of their informants’ surroundings. One young man seems particularly thrilled to be drinking coffee at Starbucks headquarters prior to the group’s visit with Starbucks chairman and founder Howard Schultz. (Yeah, the same place that banned The Austin Chronicle from its stores.) The young interviewers hang on every word that Kevin Carroll utters, and with good reason.
If Harry decided to do nothing, nothing, after his name was picked from the Goblet of Fire, there’s really no way anyone could have forced him to compete. Even if the judges insisted upon obeying a magic cup and entering Harry into every event, he could have stayed home and watched the whole thing on Pay Per View, scoring a solid zero points at each tally. Seriously, what was the cup going to do to him if he didn’t participate? Kill him? Apparently not, since he shows up late for one event and the cup wasn’t coming after him with a dagger or anything..
