|The collection consists of seven-pieces, made in a palette of off-white, beige, and champagne. http://coachoutlet.marvelavengersalliancehack.net/ - coach outlet online Dino Costa has a big mouth.A noted and coveted tool for a radio personality to be sure, but Costa has that big mouth no matter what he is doing. The only difference is in regular conversation his volume reaches a seven.But on the air, as a famous British rocker once said of his amp, his mouth cranks up to 11.But one minute before his daily show, broadcast from a Cheyenne studio to his online subscribers, Costa is quiet.Depending on the day, he is wearing one of several University of Wyoming or Denver Broncos baseball caps. As the seconds to show time fall off, Costa pulls himself into his chair and there is something animal there, something primal. His movement is confident and measured. It says, "I am here to do battle, and the microphone in front of me will serve as my weapon. I am ready."From the next room, Costa's producer counts down silently and points.Costa is on the air, and his big mouth is making him money. People are tuning in from around the U.S. and the world to hear what he has to say about sports, politics and life.He talks. You listen, if only to see what he'll say next to knock him even further to the fringes of mainstream media and deeper into the waiting arms of his loyal fans.Costa got into broadcasting back in 1997 when he was in his 30s as a play-by-play baseball commentator in Iowa. His r茅sum茅 includes jobs in West Virginia, Florida, Colorado, and finally, New York, where he worked for SiriusXM Satellite Radio.If you know him at all, it is most likely from his time on satellite radio with the Mad Dog Sports Radio, where he wasn't shy about self-promotion and editorializing about in-house leadership on the air.He wasn't shy about much else there either, offering sports takes that make Skip Bayless look drugged and political commentary that may have Rush Limbaugh question if he was being even a little bit politically incorrect.And while Costa's show wasn't prime time, he was building a following."At the same time, I wasn't getting the support I thought I needed to grow the show," Costa said.To him, that meant getting his own channel, being promoted on other platforms and being sent to cover big events. All this, he covered in detail nightly.Things progressed from there, with Costa's mouth earning him fans and making management rub their heads. In 2012, he called Chris Russo, the Mad Dog himself, a "has been," on the air, to his face.On a station full of renegade talkers and loudmouths, Costa was pushing it too far. A year later, he was out of a job."It broke my heart what happened with Sirius," Costa said. "It just reached a point where my bitching and com-plaining about it caused them to move in another direction. I have no regrets, though."Near the end of his tenure at SiriusXM, Costa had moved to Cheyenne. He liked the people here and the political atmosphere, having fallen in love with the Cowboy State while living in Colorado.Raised in New York, he has no formal connection to the West but said he has always loved it.When he was finished with SiriusXM, he stayed. The place was perfect for raising a family, he thought. That's when he began this digital subscription project where fans pay to listen to his show through the web.Far away from a media hub and with only his own brand to grow and tend to, Costa got to work.In some ways, this part of his career matches the early pioneers, heading out of crowded cities to make their own lives, stopping only when the air was clean and space plentiful. He doesn't explicitly say this or draws that comparison himself, but he clearly loves Wyoming and all that comes with it."Colorado's motto should be 'Just south of paradise'," he said during his show.Under the new model, fans get the same unfiltered, unapologetic and confrontational Costa they have come to expect.The same guy who offers what he describes as a right of center take on sports, standing out in a sea of liberal sports media repeating the same takes over and over, into infinity.The same guy who has more than 40 years of sports knowledge about every team on the tip of his tongue.The same guy who gets fired up and yells until the glass in his empty room vibrates as he crosses over to 11.The same guy who can slip into a trance when offering his stream of consciousness commentary and not break for anything."There are some nights when he comes in and just gets on the air and talks for an hour non-stop," said Shane Napier, Costa's producer. "It's something to see when he is fired up."Costa is fired up about a lot of things these days.For example, he hates the "manufactured outrage" over the Washington Redskins football name. And there's the hypocrisy of the hate directed toward quarterback Tim Tebow for being outwardly and vocally Christian - and yet quarterback Russell Wilson was celebrated for his tearful post-game comments where he thanked God. And there's the over-selling of the potential of brain injuries in football among younger kids."At 10 years old, how hard are they actually hitting?" he wondered during a show.As for pop culture, he devoted 15 minutes talking about the politics of "American Sniper" after hearing comments from Bill Maher calling Chris Kyle a psychopath."It's a convenient movie for liberals to take aim at. They can't see past the fact that he was a man doing his job in the theater of war," Costa said. "Shows you the sickening residue that festers in the brain of the liberal individual."Another tangent led him to explain how he loved the "The Verdict" but couldn't see himself ever buying Paul Newman's salad dressing."All that money goes to liberal agendas. I just can't do it."In politics, he calls President Obama a lying, sociopathic narcissist - and those are among his kindest words.In fairness, he boasts on bumper stickers that "Liberals hate this show," so it's not like he's misleading anyone.His thoughts on any of these topics are enough to make some clutch at their pearls in dismay. They are certainly counter to the chuckling, talking heads that ESPN puts on the air, more pals than anything else. If ESPN is the fun and clean-shaven guy at the office who knows a little something about sports, Costa is the loud uncle at the bar, yelling inappropriate comments at the TV, asking if anyone actually believes this garbage.Only, that comparison brings to mind a drunk, older man, slurring his words over a beer. An image that Costa certainly isn't. Costa is beyond eloquent, if occasionally rambling. Transcribe his show and you will note the consistent use of high-point Scrabble words - apparatus (13 points), infantile (14 points) and passionate (14 points). Albeit, high-point words mixed in with the four-letter variety.Off the air, he is easy to chat with, displaying a deep curiosity of what makes you tick, even if it contrasts with his lifestyle and opinions.For the most part, he is at a seven, and that isn't much louder than the norm in society these days anyway, if social media is any barometer.Costa won't say how many listeners he has currently on his subscription show, only that they are in 49 states as well as several European and Asian countries.Wherever they are, they form the base of Costa's income. His personality and takes make it hard to find sponsors, though he said he is looking into support from craft beer and gun manufactures, for example."The show doesn't fit for Proctor and Gamble products," he said. "The average company's profile isn't going to fit - nor should it - and I don't blame them for that."Costa isn't alone in trying to make the jump to a digital subscription model, according to Jon Chelesnik, the CEO of Sports Talent Agency of America. Unfortunately, more people are failing than succeeding, and simply being "unafraid to offer controversial takes" isn't enough, he said.That is too common in 2015, and everyone - from small- to middle-market personalities - is trying to sell them-selves that way.The fact is, you have to be a massive name along the lines of Dan Patrick for the numbers to really work, he said."The thing he (Costa) has going for him, though, is that he is a tireless self-promoter - a go-getter. That's his reputation in the industry," Chelesnik said."Radio personalities are like NFL head coaches. They are hired to get fired, that just happens to a lot of people. He has just been more resilient."Benjie Kaze worked with Costa at Fox Sports Net Rocky Mountain doing a TV show earlier in his career. He agrees with Chelesnik about Costa's drive, noting he took many calls from Costa seeking work before he finally brought him in."What you see is what you get, and I mean that with total appreciation for what he is and does," he said. "I valued the fact that he was all in. You want him to be on air for you."It is clear that Costa values this vision of himself, which is why he reacted with vehemence when multiple websites, including Awful Announcing, accused him of stealing content last year.The sports blog published a story noting that content was being posted on Costa's website whole hog without proper attribution. It appeared that Costa was taking Associated Press, ESPN and other stories and posting them to his page, without bylines.Costa apologized on Twitter but argued loudly that if he was going to steal content that would be the dumbest way to do it. How could people even think he was writing all this stuff in his spare time?Bringing this up today is enough to crack a phone speaker as Costa rages."To suggest that someone like me, of all people, could plagiarize is the height of absurdity," he said, edging now towards a 12. "You would have to be a moron to think I am trying to pass this stuff off as my own."Costa posted comments to that end through Twitter and in the comment section of the blog post, culminating in calling the author a mental midget of epic proportions. In fact, looking through past articles about Costa's career, it is clear he reads them closely, as he can be found in the comment sections of some, offering critiques as only he can.His goal is to protect his brand, and if that means dialing it up to 11 on a different type of airwave, then so be it. He certainly isn't going to change who he is this late in the game, and he isn't going to worry about getting in trouble either.A profile piece from October 2012 titled, "Dino Costa, Angriest Man on the Airwaves," by Michael Hastings for Men's Journal noted that Costa "has been fired from or quit eight radio jobs and one TV gig over a 10-year span for reasons ranging from insulting corporate sponsors to allegations of sexual harassment."The point of that line is that he has come back every time. No matter what he is accused of, he is still a great personality who is ready for prime time, and there will always be people willing to listen to him and willing to pay him to be on air, egging him on to 11 and beyond and celebrating all that he stands for.As it happens, Costa recently signed a deal with KRAE, a local radio station. The plan is for him to start Monday, with a show airing from 2-5 p.m. On top of that, he will start broadcasting for Yahoo! Sports Radio network on March 29.His digital-subscription show will still run as well, uncut and uncensored as always.KRAE station president Larry Proietti said in an email he was excited to bring Costa onto the station."It's not every day that a nationally renowned sports broadcaster falls into your lap in Cheyenne, Wyoming,'" he said. "I would be totally remiss in not taking this opportunity to take our sports talk programming to another level."As to why he keeps getting these chances, Costa is unsure but ultimately pleased, lowering his voice to a five or so. He talks about the homogenized and risk-adverse state of the radio industry and finally settles on one thought that has remained a constant for him."I have always found that people like me or they don't, but they listen," he said. "That's the most important thing for me." d http://oakleysoutlet.rinosac.com/ - oakley glasses |

x 3. Matt Hall - Rookie - Two Rivers, AK http://louboutinoutlet.mindbodyease.com/ - christian louboutin outlet I must admit that I was a little giddy when newly elected Governor Asa Hutchinson announced his proposal to cut income taxes for the middle class by about $102 million a year. However, that giddiness didn t last long when I read the Independent Citizens Commission s proposal to more than double the pay of legislators and substantially increase other elected officials salaries.What are they thinking?While the nation s economy seems to be improving ever so slowly but surely why does this group feel the need to increase the pay of these public servants? I keep asking myself this question over and over again. Don t these people already have jobs that pay them significantly more than most Arkansans earn?The Independent Citizens Commission was created by a constitutional amendment that eased up on term limits on lawmakers and imposed new ethics rules on elected officials. This commission s proposal would increase the salaries of all of Arkansas s constitutional offices with the exception of lieutenant governor whose salary would remain at $42,315. There are some that want to phase this office out altogether. The governor s paycheck would rise from $87,759 a year to $141,000. The attorney general s salary would jump from $73,132 to $130,000. Slightly smaller increases would go to state judges, including members of the Arkansas Supreme Court and Court of Appeals.House and Senate members would get the largest pay hikes leaping from $15,869 a year to $39,400. Salaries of the House speaker and Senate president would increase from $17,771 a year to $45,000.Meanwhile Governor Hutchinson has requested a 1-percent cost-of-living pay increase for state employees. That more than pales in comparison to the proposed pay increases for the already rich and famous. It should also be noted here that Hutchinson s plan to cut income taxes would also only amount to 1 percent for those making between $21,000 and $75,000 a year.The governor s tax cut would cost the state coffers about $102 million a year. Some members of the legislature are already questioning where the state could make up that loss of revenue. I haven t heard anybody ask where the funds for boosting our elected officials would be obtained.While the governor s proposed budget calls for increasing public school funding by almost $51 million, teacher salaries don t appear to be a pressing matter for our governing body.It is painfully obvious where the priorities of the Independent Citizens Commission lie and it doesn t appear to be with working class Arkansans. Arkansas voters sent a message loud and clear in the past election that the status quo of elected officials will no longer suffice. They will eventually answer to the public.It must be nice to be in a position to be able to be able to vote yourself a pay raise. However, there may be consequences to pay. Increase your pay now and get fired later.Page 2 of 2 - I have just a couple of more questions before I close. Just who appointed the members of this Independent Legislative Commission anyway? Wouldn t have been the legislators would it? If so, can you spell conflict of interest?

There were free, public hospitals that did not charge for services or care. While these hospitals did not have many of the modern amenities we have come to expect in our Westernized hospitals (TV鈥檚, beds with adjustable positions) rooms contained just the minimum equipment needed to provide the necessary care for each patient. Some of the private hospitals and clinics that we visited had more equipment available to them (wall mounted oxygen and newer IV pumps) and had a lower patient census (ratio of patients to each nurse/doctor).
