RonTopofIt is a complex personality, as are most of the small breed of modern day renaissance millionaires. He wishes more people were like him and yet believes that it takes all kinds. You've met RonTopofIt many times, you just don't remember him.
It was the middle of a work week â€” but that didn’t stop the State Department of Parks and Recreation from having a little fun. On state time, driving state vehicles and transporting state workers flown in from Southern California for â€œtraining,â€ the employees dined, bowled and laughed, a CBS13 On The Money investigation has learned.
Togo’s sure knows how to celebrate pastrami. In fact, the west coast-based eatery recently celebrated National Hot Pastrami Day this past Saturday by kicking off a promotion that’s every pastrami-lover’s dream and every Vegan’s worst nightmare. It’s called The Pounder, and rightfully so, considering that this two-foot long behemoth of a sandwich is stacked to the brim with over a pound of hot pastrami.
The sandwich will run you roughly $23.
The Family size version comes in at 3,020 calories, 143 grams of fat, 9,020 grams of sodium, and 164 grams of protein. The challenge version must be at least three times this size. I couldn’t find the specs online.
Buy the sandwich at the regular price and then tell the crew member you are taking the challenge and fill out the paperwork!
Devour the Pastrami Pounder in 30 minutes to successfully complete the challenge (one person per sandwich)
It’s Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. This is a time to reflect; a time to think about dreams. It is also a time to prepare to say goodbye (reportedly, er, sources say, by the time you read this) to the Sacramento Kings. We may want to ease our sorrows by putting ourselves in Seattle’s shoes. That is, let’s hop over to their side of the internet and check out what they have to say.
You can believe it now: NBA is coming back. This time the deal is done. The Sonics are coming back in the form of the Sacramento Kings. No this isn’t a dream. And it isn’t another one of those here-come-the-Kings teases. This time the deal is done. The Sonics are coming back in the form of the Sacramento Kings…And remember, the Maloofs, who have tried their best to run this team into the ground, no longer are running this show…I just have the feeling, judging by the smart and understated way Hansen and his colleagues have gone about the arena proposal and the acquisition of this team, they will be equally good at finding the right people to make the right personnel decisions. These guys are winners…We may never open our arms to commissioner David Stern, but he wanted this deal to work. He told me four years ago he wanted Ballmer in the league. The league is better with Hansen and Ballmer in it.

Nick toma got fired! As much as i miss him he shouldnt of done what he did on live tv. Him and marianne are friends. And do u really think that is the REAL don g commenting on this page? Highly dojbtful.
Nick comes to Eyewitness News with 23 years of reporting and anchoring experience, most recently in Sacramento, California where he co-hosted a five hour morning show…Nick’s hidden talent? He’s a drummer and enjoys filling in for cover bands when he can. Nick has played in tribute bands for The Beatles, Stones and The Who. He’s open to sitting in for Rockford cover bands and his price is right (free!).
You wouldn’t know it from their website (three browsers and counting, nice color choices, guys), but KQCA My58 is “looking for outgoing, self-motivated, energetic individuals with big personalities and excellent people skills to join our promotional street team. You must be extremely reliable, demonstrate excellent work ethic.”
Yes, that’s a quote, the last sentence is really constructed like that (posted on 12/20/2012, mind you).
I’ll continue the cut and paste for those of you with older eyes.
These part-time positions put you in the middle of the action at some of the year’s biggest events. You will be a complete marketing ambassador for My58, by representing My58 onsite at events, taking photos and videos at events and representing My58 online through our website and social media. You will even have the chance to be featured on-air. It’s an opportunity that’s fun, flexible and gives you great experience! On-air hosting skills a plus, but not required. Must be at least 21 years old, able to lift up to 40 lbs and able to work a flexible part-time schedule.
These are real jobs though, although nothing is listed after “Compensation” on the job listings.
1) Dudes get into a fight.
2) Dudes knock down a sign.
3) Sign makes a loud noise.
4) Mall patrons hear loud noise and think it is a gun shot.
5) Mall patrons then turn to their smartphones and report said gun shot via social media.
6) Mall is then put on lock down until security and police could sort things out.
7) Suspect claims he was just punching a dude who walked past him like he had a problem.
“I feel bad,” Santiago said. “I send out all my apologies to all those families out there, you feel me? But it wasn’t my fault.”
Well, it sort of was, you feel me? Sure, people freaked out and assumed the worst, but it is understandable considering recent events. I do wonder if having such quick and easy access to information is a good thing.
Shoppers began texting family and friends and using social media to spread the word about what was happening, spreading incorrect information, Reed said. “It’s like the old kindergarten thing — when you tell one kindergartner and it goes around the room, by the time it gets to the other kindergartner it’s a totally different story than what it was,” he said.
I wonder if modern classrooms are not calling this game “Telephone” anymore. Maybe “Smartphone” or “Tweet this.” I could be on to something, but I digress.
What do you think? Would this have been a non-issue before smartphones and social media?
