timberland bromilly A Proper Diet for the Brain

When a psychiatrist sets out to write a diet book, he doesn’t have a slimmer waistline in mind. The modern American diet or MAD, as Ramsey calls it fails to nourish the brain. Heavily processed foods loaded with sugar and toxins have given rise not only to America’s obesity epidemic, but also an epidemic of depression, which Ramsey contends is even more dangerous. Studies show that obese people’s brains actually age faster than those of people at a normal weight, and excess weight has been linked to dementia. “The Happiness Dietfocuses on nutrition from the brain’s perspective with a primary goal of improved brain health,” said Ramsey, 37. Even cholesterol, which forms a crucial protective layer around the brain, gets a nod. Ramsey, a practicing psychiatrist on the Upper West Side, always asks his patients what they eat. He believes this is the closest thing to primary prevention in psychiatry. When people eat too few calories, they can be depressed and irritable, so when patients are willing, he helps them overhaul their diet. “Just eating kale and salmon won’t give you bliss, but by promoting stable, positive moods, better focus and concentration, and improved energy, people will engage in their lives in ways that promote feeling their best,” Ramsey said. Today, an average person on MAD eats three pounds of sugar every week. In order to make the switch to the Happiness Diet of organic and whole foods, Ramsey said “carbage” and “bad mood foods” primarily sugar laden foods, industrial fats and factory farmed meat must be cut. He also urges readers to steer clear of artificially flavored foods and foods labeled “low fat” and “fat free.” When fats are extracted from foods, they’re usually replaced with refined sugars, which are less satisfying and have no nutritional value. “Basically, don’t eat stuff out of a package,” he said. Ramsey devotes a portion of his book to the origins of MAD and the advances in industry that brought processed foods to the mainstream. Though the Happiness Diet is not a diet in the traditional sense, the book does include a number of diet recommendations. “The good news is that the Happiness Diet is made of foods you already like,” he said. It’s a plant based diet, though meat is an important component. He says it’s important to eat a wide variety of organic vegetables because conventional vegetables,
best price timberland boots A Proper Diet for the Brain
depending on how they were farmed, are diminished in vital nutrients. A diet of whole foods naturally contains less fat and sodium. Ramsey is a former vegetarian who grew up on an organic farm in southern Indiana. “I had problems with energy and focus until I started eating fish. Vegetarianism doesn’t make sense when you look at nutrition, but I agree with vegetarians in that we need to reform our eating,” he said. Ramsey recommends eating wild seafood at least twice a week, and said red meat should always be organic and grass fed. Cows fed a grain based diet are more susceptible to illness and are then treated with antibiotics, which we in turn eat. “Factory raised meat and dairy are the top dietary source of toxins,” he said. For this reason, he also recommends eating organic eggs and drinking organic whole milk. In “The Happiness Diet,” Ramsey ranks the top foods for boosting energy (mesclun, coffee, chocolate, walnuts, red beans, and blue and red skinned potatoes), mood (wild salmon, shrimp, cherry tomatoes, watermelon, chili peppers, beets and garlic), and focus (eggs, grass fed beef, organic whole milk, Brussels sprouts, grapefruit, lemon, berries and anchovies). The book also includes shopping lists and enough recipes for several weeks on the Happiness Diet, as well as money saving tips like buying meat straight from the farm and joining a community share agriculture group to have direct access to fresh, seasonal vegetables. “People always say eating organic is expensive, but if you consider what a MAD eater will need to spend on health care down the road, it’s really not at all,

Jurors in a Manhattan federal court will start hearing testimony next week on charges of bribery and corruption against a former top aide to the governor, two Syracuse business executives and an energy company official.

Observers around New York state and beyond will be watching prosecutors try to convict a top state official of extorting money or “ziti” as it was referred to in emails from company executives with business before the state. Attorney Preet Bharara promised the trial would pull back the curtains to reveal the seamy side of state government.

“I really do hope that there is a trial in this case, so that all New Yorkers can see, in gory detail, what their state government has been up to,” Bharara said in September 2016, when he unveiled the charges.

Star witness Todd Howe is a disgraced former lobbyist with longstanding ties to Gov. Andrew Cuomo and Cuomo former aide, Joseph Percoco. Howe, who already pleaded guilty and awaits sentencing, will provide the key testimony against Percoco and three other men on trial.

Howe is expected to testify about his efforts to help Percoco collect what they called bribes,
timberland boots women a preview from A to Ziti
according to prosecutors from the other defendants.

All the defendants have adamantly denied the charges and are likely to attack Howe credibility.

Joseph Percoco, the central defendant, is the former executive deputy secretary to Cuomo. He is accused of extorting bribes from the other defendants in return for Percoco help with state government matters.

Steven Aiello and Joseph Gerardi, principals in Fayetteville based Cor Development Co., are accused of paying Percoco $35,000, funneled through Howe and Percoco wife. They also are charged with lying to the feds by denying they paid Percoco.

Peter Galbraith Kelly Jr. is accused of bribing Percoco, too. Kelly, a former energy company executive, is accused of providing Percoco with $287,

timberland shoes for kids A possible consolidation by Caterpillar may benefit Winston

Caterpillar confirmed Saturday that one of its subsidiaries, Progress Rail Services Co., may close its engine manufacturing plant in LaGrange, Ill., potentially affecting more than 600 jobs. subsidiaries, with the Winston Salem plant specifically mentioned.

Progress Rail’s local railroad equipment production plant, at 2950 Temple School Road, had 160 employees at last count.

The subsidiary also said it could shift certain engine and locomotive components to outside suppliers.

“Progress Rail routinely reviews its strategic footprint and, as a result, is evaluating how to use its existing manufacturing space as efficiently as possible to remain a competitive supplier to the rail industry,” Caterpillar said. and worldwide.

Part of the restructuring was Caterpillar switching the use of its $426 million Winston Salem plant from axle manufacturing for mining trucks to its railroad business unit.

The 850,000 square foot plant, when operating as an axle manufacturing operation, had a peak workforce of 438. The company had pledged to create 510 full and part time jobs.

In August 2016, the company renegotiated its incentive packages with Winston Salem and Forsyth County, who approved keeping it eligible for the incentives with as few as 200 jobs in exchange for pledging to keep the plant open an additional five years.

Caterpillar disclosed, and local elected officials accepted that the company’s local workforce could drop below 200 temporarily. The workforce slipped to 140 in January 2017 before rising by 20 jobs over the past year.

The amended incentive agreements make it less likely that Caterpillar’s local workforce will drop low enough below 100 to invoke a “clawback provision” on the more than $8.7 million in local incentives it had received as of August 2016.

The company did not provide a deadline for when it might possibly make a decision about the future of the plant in LaGrange. It said there are an additional 600 jobs in administration, engineering and support operations that would not be affected.

Caterpillar declined to say how many jobs the local plant might gain from the potential consolidation.

The axle production was shifted in 2017 to operations in Decatur, Ill., where most of the production was done before the Winston Salem plant opened in 2011 to resolve a year’s backlog.

The disclosure comes two days after Caterpillar reported that fourth quarter sales increased 34.4 percent to $12.9 billion.

Analysts have become increasingly bullish over the past 12 months about Caterpillar’s benefiting from expanded infrastructure spending in the United States and worldwide on machinery and products in the construction, energy and mining sectors.

Each of Caterpillar’s three main divisions had a sharp increase in third quarter revenue: 47 percent in construction industries, to $5.26 billion; 22 percent for energy and transportation, which includes the Winston Salem plant, to $4.71 billion; and 53 percent in resource industries, to $2.2 billion.

“We remained focused on operational excellence and made early investments in profitable growth initiatives as we began to implement our new strategy,” Jim Umpleby, Caterpillar’s chief executive, said Thursday.

The company said that “Caterpillar is beginning 2018 with strong sales momentum resulting from strong order rates, lean dealer inventories and an increasing backlog.”

“Caterpillar is preparing its factories and suppliers to be ready for continued growth, while remaining focused on managing with a flexible and competitive cost structure that should enable the company to respond quickly if economic fundamentals change,” it said

womens timberlands A Philosophical Reading of the Book of Job Religion EthicsAustralian Broadcasting Corporation

timberland clothing A Philosophical Reading of the Book of Job Religion EthicsAustralian Broadcasting Corporation

I am a philosopher who believes that Western philosophy begins not with Plato, but elsewhere, and earlier, with the Book of Job. That is because I believe that the problem of evil is the central point where philosophy begins, and threatens to stop.

The experience of inexplicable suffering and basest injustice forces us to ask whether our lives have meaning, or whether human existence may be deeply incomprehensible. And if that is the case, then the urge to philosophy can seem to be a simple mistake. Put more optimistically: if the task of philosophy is to show how the world is, or can be made rational, then it must address the presence of evil in the world.

Classically, the majority of thinkers dealt with the problem by denying the third claim. Evil doesn’t exist, or anyway not really: you can’t have light without having shadows; you wouldn’t want to eat sugar all the time and nothing salty (these are Leibniz’s examples.) Everything we take to be evil actually happens for the best, and if we knew all that God knows we would understand that too.

Though one still does hear versions of this view from surprising corners, it is the route we are least likely to take these days, largely since the mid eighteenth, century certainly since the twentieth century. For it denies what we witness nearly every day: children are murdered in Afghanistan or Florida, and the world keeps on turning, and not even the punishment of those responsible if it happens at all can make a dent in the cosmic flaw that is revealed when that kind of evil shows itself among us.

Before the eighteenth century, however, nearly every major thinker preferred to deny the evidence of his senses than deny the central theses of monotheism that God exists, and is omnipotent and benevolent. Perhaps it would have seemed a denial of hope. The Book of Job is matchless because it is unwilling to make the problem easier by dropping any of these claims, and makes us feel the force of all of them.

Note that the example I just used is an example of moral evil, which is different to what, up to the mid eighteenth century, was called natural evil namely, the suffering that is caused through things like earthquakes, plagues and floods. One revolutionary turn of the Enlightenment was to make a radical distinction between these: there is a fundamental difference between what happens when a child is killed by a vigilante thug and when he is killed by an earthquake in Italy.

I am simply here pointing out that the distinction between natural and moral evils is not a distinction that is important for most traditional believers, and hence not for Job. The book notes no difference in the misery he feels when the suffering was caused by lightning or by marauding neighbours after all, both the lightning and the neighbours are all ultimately in the hands of God. So this book ignores a quintessentially modern distinction, but before you conclude that this makes the book less timeless, you should know that Sigmund Freud profound atheist and demystifier held the distinction to be of little importance. There is good reason, at first glance, to believe this. Even the best translations cannot obscure the incredible differences in language: the poetry of the main body of the text Job’s outrage, and God’s answer seems worlds away from the language of the prologue and epilogue, which is not only prosaic, but so wooden as to come closest to soap opera or slapstick.

Just consider the way in which Job’s suffering is introduced: the first messenger appears with the announcement, “The oxen were ploughing and the donkeys grazing and the Sabeans attacked and took them and killed the servants and only I escaped to tell you.” Before he had finished speaking another one came and said, “Lightning fell from the sky and burned up the sheep and servants and only I escaped to tell you.” Before he had finished speaking, another one came and said, “Your sons and daughters were feasting and a great wind came out of the desert and they’re dead and only I escaped to tell you.” If you saw this on a stage, you might laugh, or sneer. You can do neither in the main body of the text.

Moreover, the weakness of the language of the prologue and epilogue seems to reflect the weakness of their content. The opening premise is clearly outrageous: God makes a bet with the devil? God allows someone He Himself describes as a man of perfect integrity to be tortured as a means of proving a boast about His own power? And speaking of power, in the second round of torments, the Almighty behaves like a sulky child, complaining to Satan that “You made me torture him for no reason”. It looks like a tacked on happy ending, straight out of Disney, which simply ignores all the questions that the rest of the book poses. Is there incomprehensible suffering in the world? Of course not, or not for long: at the end of the book Job has 14,000 sheep instead of 7,000, 6,000 camels instead of 3,000; the Lord doubles Job’s possessions, and gives him just the same number of children he had before.

Moreover and this is perhaps the most crucial point the Job of the prologue and the epilogue seem to be a wholly different man from the one we see in the poem. In particular since this was one of the books of the Bible whose canonization was hotly debated, for reasons I think obvious scholars have speculated that the epilogue was tacked on at the end in order to support conventional notions of religion and morality that are threatened by the body of the text. If you happen to suffer along the way, just hang on and your reward will eventually double.

I am in no position to answer such textual questions, or evaluate the attempts made to argue for the unity of the text. I raise them just to say that scholars are still debating them, and if your initial reaction in reading Job was a sense of severe dissonance between parts of the book, you are not alone.

What we can say, however, that the text has been transmitted to us as a unity. We are moved by this book because we accept, or begin by accepting, its basic premises. We take the text at face value because something about it seems true. Here is a good man who suffers the most horrible series of catastrophes, for no reason at all. Though he tries to bear them with humility and fortitude, he breaks down in a rage that we share: where is justice, and meaning in the world, when this sort of thing is possible?

A brief survey of the immense literature on Job reveals that Job’s world is much closer to ours than the world of the intervening centuries; for every earlier interpretation sought to deny some piece of that picture we find undeniable. Some medieval Christian interpretations did this in the most straightforward of ways: they simply censored those pieces of the text in which Job expresses rage. If you leave those out, you get the figure of the patient Job, who remains humble and pious throughout every twist of fate; you get some bits of traditional theodicy about the mysteriousness of God’s purposes for the feeble human mind; and Job’s piety is rewarded in the end, serving nicely as an example for schoolchildren.

This is precisely what John Calvin did admittedly, I haven’t read all 159 sermons that he wrote on Job, but in the sample I have taken he goes on to add that Job was actually fortunate to have his riches taken away, given how hard it is for a rich man to enter the kingdom of heaven, before rushing to add that the story also tells us that riches per se should not be despised. Hello, Max Weber! In sum, the lesson Calvin draws is that Job shows we should be patient until God discloses His reasons, for God can dispose of His creatures at His pleasure. Calvin doesn’t mention the children.

Other Christian readings viewed the problems in the Book of Job to be problems within Judaism, which Christianity had resolved. Job was seen as a parallel or precursor to Jesus; one theologian wrote that Job is the question, and Jesus the answer. Moreover, some Christian theologians continued, the difficulties in Job stem from the failure of traditional Judaism to develop an adequate theory of the afterlife. On some views, that theory just is an answer to the problem of evil: the Jobs of the world land in heaven, where the infinite duration of their reward makes any problems they had in the world below seem fleeting and trivial. But traditional Jewish interpretations can deny the immensity of the problem just as surely as do Christian ones. Here we find no straightforward censorship; once a text has been canonized, it cannot be cut. As a text, it is sacred. If passages in it seem problematic, it is precisely the business of scholarship to explain them, by argument and analogy, by imagining details that were left out of the original text and make it explicable.

In short: Jews don’t cut texts, we write more of them. One Midrash (a collection of sacred tales meant to explain problematic passages of Scripture) tells us that Job was punished for the sin of neutrality. Three non Jews were asked what should be the fate of the children of Israel in Egypt. The father in law of Moses, Jethro, said they should be liberated, and he was rewarded appropriately. Pharoah said they should be annihilated, and we know what happened to him. Job remained silent, undecided, neutral on a question of good and evil; hence the very peculiar nature of his torment.

Another Midrash tells us the following: as the children of Israel were trying to cross the Red Sea, Satan came along to try to stop them. In order to divert Satan long enough for the people to cross, God threw him Job, just as a shepherd may temporarily leave the strongest of his rams to battle the wolf while herding the lambs to safety.

Let’s reflect the philosophical structure of these tales. In the first, what is claimed is that Job was guilty of something after all; therefore his punishment was deserved. (Indeed, a host of traditional interpretations accuse Job of a variety of sins, from self righteousness to rebellion itself. Since God, knowing everything, knew that Job harboured rebellious thoughts, Job can justly be punished for having them even before he expresses them.) The neutrality story is interesting for its political implications, but however complex the sin it describes may be, its solution to the problems Job poses is very simple: Job was guilty, and God punished him. In the second Midrash, what is being argued is that Job’s suffering served a higher purpose, diverting Satan so that the children of Israel can escape to freedom. This turns Job into a kind of Hegelian resistance hero who, albeit unwittingly, is strong enough and righteous enough to plunge into the slaughterbank of history for the sake of other’s lives or freedom.

baby girl timberland boots A parenting dilemma

timberland sales A parenting dilemma

Dear Tracey >> I just spent 10 days with my daughter, my son in law and their two children, ages 5 and 7. It was a wonderful visit. I love seeing all of them.

But, I left feeling sad about how my grandchildren are being raised. My daughter and her husband are good parents, very loving. Maybe the problem is that I can relate to parenting these days?

It just that both of them work incredibly demanding jobs at huge corporations. The television goes on as soon as everyone gets home from work and daycare and the kids plop down in front of it until suppertime. Every night, I watched those two exhausted parents, who answered their cell phones no matter what was happening, scurry through dinner and baths. Finally, they trundled the kids off to bed, reminding them that they have half hour with their iPads and then it lights out.

I asked if it was OK if I read to the kids each night. I think that may have irritated my daughter, but she said yes. (I love snuggling up with those precious children, reading to them as I had always done to my own.) They didn seem to miss their iPads.

One night when I came out from reading to the kids my daughter looked at me and said, hope you understand that it isn like when you, a stay at home mom, were raising us. We doing the best we can.

Do I keep my mouth shut or do bring up what I think they are all missing as a family, time spent together without all of the electronic devices? Signed, Grandma

Dear Reader >> After reading your email I knew I had to begin my response with a confession. Like you, I have a very strong preference for free parenting. I think today children are suffering from all of the electronics they are exposed to. Sadly, excessive screen time has become the norm, in spite of reputable research that has established the negative consequences of too much screen time for children.

I get it that many of today parents are exhausted. They work long days, often with a long commute tacked on, only to have their family time at night interrupted by cell phones and text messages. Knowing how and when to draw some healthy boundaries eludes many of the brightest parents.

But your question is, do you bring up any of this with your daughter? I think she may have already given you the answer and it no. Consider her statement: it isn like when you, a stay at home mom, were raising us. We doing the best we can.

While she seemed to acknowledge the shortcomings of their parenting, she was also telling you that they are resigned to their situation. It sounds like she already feels defensive about their parenting, which is hardly an invitation to hear what you might have to add.

If, at some point your daughter gives you an opening, by all means, weigh in. But be very careful about your approach. Acknowledge that yes, you were mothering under different circumstances. Let her know how much you appreciate how hard she and her husband work. Ask her if she is happy with the way things are and if not, what can improve their situation?

In the meantime, on a very tangible level, ask your daughter if you can connect with your grandchildren one or two nights a week at bedtime. Thanks to technology you could be reading them bedtime stories via your computer. This would be a wonderful way for you to have time with your precious grandchildren while offering them a healthy alternative to their iPads.

I ended up kinda wishing I hadn

The museum itself is a lovely two story building, a renovated Ottoman villa, in the center of town. (Pristina doesn really have a center, but it near that big intersection where there are, like, four mosques in a two block radius.) From the outside, it looked pretty promising. Kosovo has no lack of history, goodness knows. So I was looking forward to. oh, I don know. Stone Age fertility carvings? Roman coins? Ottoman rugs? Surely something interesting.

Well, yes and no. There was only one exhibit in the museum. It was quite a large exhibit. You could spend a while looking at it. No Roman coins or Greek vases; no, just this one big exhibit.

Swords. Muskets. Bayonets. Rifles. There were blades from the Ottoman days, and a lot of guns from WWI, and some more from WWII. But most of all, there were modern weapons, the kind used by the KLA to fight the Serbs. No, that’s not right. Not “the kind”, but the ACTUAL weapons used by the KLA. Some of them, anyway.

They had AK 47s and hunting rifles and hand grenades. They had Bowie knives and 9 mm pistols. They had the terrible .50 caliber tripod mounted sniper rifles, the ones that can blow a man’s head off from a mile away. And then they had some more AK 47s.

It might have been more interesting if the posters and they were quite elaborate had been in English. But they weren’t. Only Albanian.

So, in addition to reinforcing an unfortunate stereotype about Albanians, the whole thing got pretty boring. I mean, after the dozenth or so AK 47, they do sort of run together.

There was one interesting thing. It was a glass case containing a pair of boots. They were nice looking boots, almost stylish. Something made me look twice, and there across the tongues was the label: Timberland.

The boots were there, of course, because they’d been the standard boots of the KLA. But that begs the question: what were Timberland boots doing in a war in the interior of the Balkans?

The answer is, they were sent there by the Albanian American diaspora. The diaspora always supported the KLA, but after the massacres started especially the March 1998 massacre of the Jashari family they started emptying their pockets, contributing hundreds of thousands of dollars every month to keep the KLA going.

Someone sent along some Timberland boots, and the guerrillas fell in love with them. Apparently 1990s Kosovo was still pretty retrograde in terms of boot technology. The local boots were either heavy, clunky, and chafing, or light, leaky, and prone to disintegrate. The Timberlands, though, were warm, watertight, light,
timberland earthkeepers jacket A Pair of Timberland Boots
comfortable, and lasted pretty much forever.

The KLA guys were living hard and sleeping rough, hiking up and down icy mountains and fording streams swollen by rain, so good boots meant a lot. Once they got a taste of Timberland, they told their American cousins to go back and get another couple thousand pairs. Which the Americans did. And by the time the war was over, the KLA guerrillas had fallen so deeply in love with Timberland boots that they gave them the highest possible accolade. they put them in their exhibit of weapons, right next to the AK 47s.

Strangely, the Timberland Company has not made use of this remarkable story of brand loyalty. Maybe someone should tell them.

Oh, yeah. Those scary .50 caliber sniper rifles? Can you guess where they got those?

American gun shows. Some people have used them to kill elephants, so they’re classified as hunting weapons in the US. They’re perfectly legal in almost every state. So the diaspora supporters of the KLA bought a couple of dozen of them and just shipped them to Albania. The airlines didn’t care as long as they were in sealed checked luggage, and Albanian Customs didn’t present any problems that a $100 bill tucked into your passport couldn’t solve.

They put the guns into four wheel drive vehicles, drove them up into the Accursed Mountains, and then took them over the border into Kosovo on the backs of men and donkeys.

A .50 caliber sniper rifle. well, it’s really more like a man portable piece of light artillery. It will punch through the armor of anything lighter than a medium tank. It’ll go through Kevlar body armor like a normal bullet through light cotton. You can use it to take out a truck by shooting it in the engine block.

You can buy them at US gun stores too, but then you have to pass a background check, which can take up to three working days. At a gun show, you don’t. Most of the Albanian Americans could have passed the check, but they were in a hurry. So they just went to the gun shows instead.

Timberland boots and .50 caliber sniper rifles. More reasons for them to love America, I guess.

Slight correction: I think you mean .50 caliber rather than 50 mm? That would be equivalent to approximately 12.7mm, with “caliber” indicating barrel diameter as a % of an inch (so .50 caliber = .5/0.0394 = 12.69 mm). A 50mm barrel isn _like_ a cannon, it _is_ a cannon. :^)

And yes, they scary. A Vietnam vet in my old Guard unit used to talk about sniping at 3/4 mile with an M2 (.50 caliber) machine gun with one round and a night scope. The newer stuff, like the Barrett (which, if I am not mistaken, is what you were looking at) adds easy man portability. Scary indeed.

Timberlands are nice boots. If I were back in the land of ice and snow, I have a pair myself. But the Timberland Company is a little too hippy dippy Ben and Jerry socially conscious to really use a KLA endorsement.

On the other hand, it wouldn surprise me if some KLA people haven consulted with the Timberland people for the next design generation.

What the Kosovars really should do, of course, is make their own Timberland knock offs. Why not? A good boot, that how Nokia started. And then sell them at US gun shows. (I am only being slightly facetious with this part.)

“Timberlands are nice boots,” hmmm. nice but not really ideal for soldiers. They might be fine for campus life but when it comes to serious outdoor activities hiking, hunting and, I presume, soldiering there many more serious boots to get.

As for sniper rifles, they great for guerilla warfare but hardly the kind of weaponry that wins wars. Whatever message the museum exhibition might convey, it was the US bombers over Belgrade which forced the Serbian army to retreat from Kosovo, not guys from Brooklyn with sniper rifles and Timberlands.

Oskar, Timberland makes about three hundred different kinds of boots. Hiking boots, work boots, safety boots, you name it. Don be fooled by the hippy dippy ad campaigns. Timberland got their start selling waterproof boots to New England lobstermen deeply conservative and extremely picky customers working under incredibly demanding conditions.

The boots I saw were serious,
timberland earthkeepers jacket A Pair of Timberland Boots
no kidding rough terrain footwear.

The sniper rifles: keep in mind what the KLA goal was. They wanted to provoke a conflict that would draw in NATO.

PGA Tour caddie Paul Tesori has detailed information in his Augusta National yardage books that he accumulated in 10 years of caddying in the Masters Tournament, but he isn’t worried about revealing some of the secrets to other caddies and their players.

“That’s nothing for me to hide,” Tesori said.

“Before they let us walk the golf course, I might have been a little more fretting about some of the information because it took me so many years (to compile it).

“But now, they let the caddies go out (and walk the course) without the players, so most of the caddies have good information.”

Chapter 2: Caddies turn the page

These days, there’s a lot more than numbers in the yardage books used by veteran caddies in the Masters.

Caddie Paul Tesori has added eight pieces of information only three of which involve yardages to his copy of the book provided by Augusta National.

He charts the wind direction that day, whether it is an uphill or downhill shot, the yardage to the front of the green, the yardage to the pin, what club was hit, how the club was hit, the distance the shot flew in the air and where the shot finished.

That’s a far cry from the pre 1970s,
amazon timberland boots A page from a pro
before yardage books. Back then, Augusta National caddies memorized yardages from landmarks such as trees.

“When I caddied, I knew what the yardage from that tree on the right side of the trap on No. 1 was to where the pins would be,” said 71 year old Augustan Jerry Beard, who caddied in 26 Masters (1956 65 and 1967 82) and helped Fuzzy Zoeller win the 1979 Masters as a Masters rookie.

The advent of yardage books did away with “landmark yardage.”

“Why would you want to use a landmark that is way over there when you can use a sprinkler head that is right here?” asked Mike Cowan, who will be caddying in his 30th consecutive Masters this year.

Jim Mackay has caddied for three time champion Phil Mickelson in all 20 of his Masters appearances. He said he has cataloged every one of Mickelson’s shots in the Masters, but because of the advances in the golf ball and equipment, “95 percent of those numbers have become unusable.”

Mackay has kept every yardage book from the Mickelson years in the Masters, with those from the three victories stored “in a special place in my closet,” he said.

“What I have that I really like for me, as a caddie, is the pin sheets,” he said. “You can go to them and see he had 212 (yards to the pin on his second shot) on (the par 5) No. 15. It helps you remember the shots from his wins there.”

timberland womens A night of nostalgia and emotion at latest Carlisle United

timberland earthkeepers chelsea boots A night of nostalgia and emotion at latest Carlisle United

There was a moment, towards the end of a night of great humour and nostalgia, that the audience fell silent, and still. Mick Wadsworth was speaking from the heart and, for a second, it felt like his emotions might catch up with him.

Carlisle United’s director of coaching from 1993 to 1996 the Division Three title, Wembley and all was asked to name the things he most values from his long career. Medals aside, he first referred to personal inscriptions made by Sir Bobby Robson in a number of books that sit on his shelves.

Then he remembered some other writing. “I got a load of letters from Carlisle fans when I left, and I kept them in a file,” Wadsworth said. “They are amazing. Amazing. The connection in what those people saw how much it meant to them was far greater than what I perceived it to be.

“They are beautiful letters, poems, drawings, bits of art. I’ve still got them.”

Those gathered in Carlisle’s Old Fire Station for the second United “legends night” were rapt by this intimate disclosure from one of the club’s most celebrated managers. Around this time, a member of the audience spoke to thank Wadsworth for giving him, a Blues supporter, the chance to see his team at Wembley for the first time.

Applause broke out, and Wadsworth was touched. “Other than for family, I’d move here tomorrow,” the Yorkshireman said. “I feel at home in Carlisle.”

These were the most poignant moments in an evening otherwise studded with insight and dressing room comedy. Wadsworth was the final turn, treating the crowd to some gems from that transforming time at Brunton Park in the mid 1990s.

His first training session, for instance: interrupted by the sight of Michael Knighton “in full kit, ball under arm, like Brian Glover in Kes, jogging onto the pitch.” Wadsworth instructed groundsman Ted Swainson to ask Knighton to go back whence he came, using a few words too salty for a family publication.

Knighton also left behind by the team coach at Huddersfield after an Auto Windscreens game, on Wadsworth’s word was a ghost at this feast. The most controversial character in the Blues’ recent history also formed the context of Fred Story’s account of his own Carlisle ownership.

Story, who oversaw two promotions and very nearly a third, began by paying tribute to his predecessor, John Courtenay, the “crazy, fantastic Irishman” who had wrested the club from Knighton in 2002 and so brought it back to its supporters.

Story, who bought the club two years later, applied his business brain to the task of making United more professional; clearing debts, responding to the 2005 floods and building on the turnaround Paul Simpson had started towards the end of the Courtenay era.

His legacy was reflected in the warm reception he received as the night’s first guest. The building tycoon balanced his own memories with praise for certain individuals and bodies of people (Simpson could be a manager in “any industry”, Andrew Jenkins was a “legend”, while United’s staff were described as routinely hard working), while the former owner referred more than once to the special relationship that grew between club and fans during his tenure.

The night at Stoke, when Conference promotion was achieved and a classic “booze up” followed in Carlisle, was his most memorable time.

Inevitably, the bumps in the road had to be negotiated. Story was ready for the question about Neil McDonald’s sacking early in the 2007/8 season and seemed to relish the chance to dismiss “100 per cent” some of the lurid speculation that followed it.

“I know what the rumours are,” Story said. “But if there had been a personal issue, I would have addressed it in a personal manner. Business comes first, and I sacked Neil for issues as a manager.”

Story, without being specific on the “issues”, recalled how “conversations” with McDonald in the close season went unheeded. This saw him pull the trigger after a 1 1 draw at Walsall on the new campaign’s opening day.

“It was nothing personal. Was it the right time? No. That was a mistake. It made it very controversial and high profile. But the way I run a business is, if I think something’s wrong, I address it. I think Carlisle United benefited from that style.”

Story’s other admission was that he had allowed himself to be drawn into a “stupid war” with the United Trust, which led to two courtroom sagas. “Who won? The solicitors,” he said. “I think of the time, money and energy fighting that crazy, wasteful battle. It was a really sorry episode in the club’s history and I take some responsibility for that, because I should have risen above it.”

Kevin Henderson, a striker who also crossed the Courtenay and Story years, was excellent value on dressing room affairs. A reliable pro, he was one of the first men signed by Simpson to help rout the drinking culture which, Henderson said, was “ruining the club”.

The post Roddy Collins dressing room was, he felt, “a disgracewith a contingent of players that wouldn’t have got in Sunday League sides”. Henderson, out of favour at Hartlepool, had family ties of his own in Carlisle and enjoyed the opportunity to bring some overdue professionalism to an underachieving club.

A natural raconteur, he painted familiar pictures of icons like Kevin Gray and Dennis Booth. Paul Arnison was another warmly recalled, not just as a fine pro but “the tightest man in soccer he would look under the bed to see if he’d lost any sleep.”

Henderson also remembered coming on as a substitute against Barnet with a secret brief to “do” the Bees defender Ian Hendon, who had been tormenting United. The resulting 50 50 clash saw Hendon limp off but Henderson carried off. “But that’s what we were. You would fight for each other, put yourself on the line.”

Tom Cowan was another committed customer from a similar period. He found the team spirit at Carlisle the equal of anywhere he had played, while the gallery enjoyed his anecdote about being knocked out cold against Halifax and trying to return to the pitch 10 minutes later, not realising he had already been subbed.

He also drew cheers when referring to a familiar foe: Stevenage manager Graham Westley, who had shouted vehemently in Cowan’s face after a foul in the 2005 play off final. “As soon as the final whistle went, the first person I saw was Westley,” the former left back said. “‘Get it up you, you ‘.”

Paul Thirlwell, from a more recent vintage, was next, describing how the “ginger prince” Chris Lumsdon made his decision to join Carlisle from Derby easier. United’s former skipper was amusing as he recounted the day against Millwall when he and Graham Kavanagh scored wonder goals to keep the Blues in League One.

The pile on, after Thirlwell’s goal, endangered his health, not least when Kavanagh took a running jump onto the mound. “Kav was about 16 clem at the time, as well.”

Thirlwell dwelt more seriously on good and challenging times. He described Peter Murphy as the man he’d most like by his side in a crisis, and Ian Harte as one of the best he played with. “He was so miserable, though either the pasta was too hard or too soft.”

He defended former manager Greg Abbott’s “body of work” in a climate of criticism, and felt successor Kavanagh, sacked in 2014, was a “good guy” who did not fail for a lack of commitment. Thirlwell, also joint caretaker manager with Tony Caig before Keith Curle arrived, confirmed they had been interested in the permanent post, “but it was never really on the cards”.

His conclusion, that Carlisle was a “fantastic place to play football” was shared by Derek Walsh, who threw light onto United’s turbulent years at the turn of the 1990s.
