Some interesting information from Cycling News:

"It would be Ekimov's third gold medal. He won gold in track team
pursuit in 1988 for the Soviet Union and gold in 2000 in the road

"He would still be considered a cycling legend without those
victories."

Without winning he would have been little more than one of those
inspirational footnote stories that are typically sprinkled throughout
Ironman broadcasts. Nice, but not the stuff of media stardom and
multi-million $ foundations.

http://fraudbytes.blogspot.com/2011/04/what-does-livestrong-and-three-cups-of.html

I decided to look up the AIP's report on LiveStrong. Although the AIP
doesn't go into a lot of details on LiveStrong, they are critical of
how inefficient the organization is and groups it as one of many
"cancer charities" that are in need of a "dose of organizational
chemotherapy." In reference to LiveStrong's predecessor organization,
The Lance Armstrong Foundation, AIP says:

The Lance Armstrong Foundation (now LiveStrong), founded by
the champion bicyclist and cancer survivor of the same name, is
celebrating its 10-year anniversary this year. Wouldn't you think a
charity that receives massive publicity for having one of the most
popular causes and most admired celebrities as the face of the
organization would be able to easily raise lots of money?
Unfortunately this is not the case. LAF spent as much as $45 to raise
each $100... (A)fter spending $10 million in solicitation costs, the
group brought in only $22 million in contributions, according to AIP's
analysis of LAF's 2005 financial statements.

In other words, LiveStrong appears to be spending a lot of money to
get contributions which should, on the face of it, come pretty easily
to this organization. In fact, when this report was written, Lance's
foundation spent 45 cents to raise a dollar! That's outrageous if you
ask me!

Dumbass you left this part out

My guess is that if we got a detailed report from AIP they would say
that Lance is spending a lot of LiveStrong's money to travel in a
private plane, stay in nice hotels, eat the finest meals, and promote
himself along with his charity.

You're right, he should ONLY be traveling by donkey cart, living in a
thatched roof hut and eating military MRI's. Maybe make an appearance
once a month or so when he can get there.

It would be foolish for anyone (like him or hate him) to think that he
has any drawing power or any ability to "promote" his organization.

And the organization if, it is truly charitable, should somehow be
readily be able to function with no overhead costs whatsoever. It is
pretty clear that every dollar spent on an employee's salary is a
dollar stripped from directly from some unwitting cancer victim.

Now if you want to delve into the actual overall function and/or
benefit of LIVESTRONG - that's a whole different issue.

Lance can't afford gourmet food, private jet travel and 5 star hotels
on his own. So if he takes 5-10 minutes out of his busy having sex
with anyone that remotely resembles his mother schedule, why should
that matter to the 18 million cancer patients that can barely afford
their treatment yet alone the their post-recovery EPO and steroids?

Maybe if they saved the money they spent on cigarettes or wasted on
taking testosterone in the early 90s they would have the money they
need for the cancer treatments.

Certainly they shouldn't bug the greatest athlete of all time to put
down the Musigny, take off his lobster bib and extract his cock out of
the Olsen twins.

Doesn't AC know he should sandbag a little ?

It's just too damn obvious. He's on a bike ride through Italy while
the rest of them are racing their asses off to just stay in the race.

If I was in the peloton - I'd just say "fuck it - I am tired of

it's heartening to see 60 Minutes pulling out of its nosedive. This was a
great show and really took the time to look at a lot of subordinate issues
in depth.

I credit the riddance of Dan Rather as the primary reason for 60 Minutes'
resurgence, and Katie Couric's diminishing influence over CBS News second.
Actually, it's better now than when it started.

It looks like CBS news is actually trying to make a move into balanced
reporting and journalism. It's very heartening, in this day of Fox/MSNBC
etc. being considered "news" shows.

Presumption of innocence is for the courtroom only; and
only for some of the principals. (Who expects counsel
for the prosecution to presume innocence?) Anyone else
is at liberty to assign guilt as he pleases, subject
only to the laws of slander and libel.

[socialactionfoundationforequity:13907 Rape & hypocrisy | Deccan Chronicle

Buzz It
Rape & hypocrisy | Deccan Chronicle
http://www.deccanchronicle.com/editorial/op-ed/rape-hypocrisy-666

We may be thousands of miles away from the scene of action, and the
culture wars across the Atlantic, but very few urban Indians today
will ask "Dominique Strauss Kaun?"

A globalised world of satellite television and the Internet produces
scandals without borders. So, one of the most memorable images of the
past week — that of an unshaven, manacled Dominique Strauss-Kahn (or
DSK as he is called in his native France) flanked by New York Police
Department officials, was transmitted instantly across the world. And
everyone — not just the French and the Americans — was quick to adapt
the scandal to their own needs and milieu. The enterprising Taiwanese
promptly came up with an animation treatment of the DSK scandal.

The rest is history, or its first draft, as a torrent of tweets. For
us in India, the scandal can be a key tool to bust some of the popular
myths about sexual assault and rape. Rape is not about sex and
seduction. It is about power and abuse of power. Rapists don't
necessarily look like ogres. They can be perfectly nice and charming
in one setting and turn violent in another. Just because someone is
intelligent and talented does not mean the person is incapable of a
sexual assault. These qualities neither add nor subtract from the
gravity of the crime. Similarly, it is irrelevant to delve into the
sexual likes and dislikes of the victim (or survivor, as some would
say) of a sex-attack. Rapists/sexual assaulters often have partners
and can get sex from elsewhere. But they mostly get their buzz by
hitting on those who are vulnerable and socio-economically inferior to
them. How often do you hear of a man sexually attacking a female boss?

To get back to the plot for the benefit of those who may have been
hibernating the past week: Till last week, the 62-year-old Strauss-
Kahn was among the uber-powerful on earth — managing director of the
International Monetary Fund (IMF) and widely viewed as a presidential
contender in his native France. He seemed to have it all — name, fame,
riches, power, charm, choices that most of us can only dream of, and a
beautiful glamorous wife, a former French TV icon.

Then, all of a sudden, like Humpty Dumpty, he had a great fall. Mr
Strauss-Kahn was arrested and charged with an alleged sexual assault,
including an attempted rape, on a chambermaid in a luxury suite in New
York City's Sofitel Hotel. From a $3,000-night suite it was the four
walls of the notorious Rikers Island jail. At the time of writing, the
former IMF boss has been released on a $1 million cash bail (and an
additional $5 million in bond), but remains under house arrest in a
building close to Ground Zero in New York, under surveillance by video
cameras, armed guards and electronic monitoring devices.

The scandal has all the necessary elements of a long-running serial.
So we are assured of a continuous flow of tidbits about the accuser
and the accused in the coming weeks. The reactions, so far, have been
interesting. Barring some feminist groups and a few journalists, much
of France thinks DSK was a victim of a "set-up". Friends of DSK are
shocked that one of their highly respected national figures was
handcuffed and paraded before the media. One close friend of the
former IMF chief even called it a "lynching murder by the media". Many
of his supporters have questioned the integrity of the maid. Then
there are the myriad conspiracy theories and charges of a frame-up.

In the United States, and much of the English-speaking world, very
many people are seeing the case as a good example of an egalitarian
justice system where an immigrant chambermaid can slap charges against
a wealthy and powerful man who sexually assaulted her.

The question that pops up again and again, however, has a sense of
deja vu: How can an educated, talented, charming man, who had so many
women friends, be a rapist? His wife, Anne Sinclair, says her husband
is innocent and that she will stand by him. Does that have a familiar
ring? The wife of Bollywood actor Shiney Ahuja who allegedly raped his
18-year-old maid, and is currently on bail, also said something pretty
similar.

DSK was a famed "grand seducer". "Yes I like women… So what?" he once
quipped. But the critical issue today is something else. DSK is not in
the dock because he liked women or because some of them reciprocated
his feelings. He is in the dock because he is alleged to have forced
himself on an unwilling woman. Those who have been screaming "honey
trap" conveniently overlook the fact that a single mother and an
immigrant, like the chambermaid, who levelled the charges against DSK,
stands to lose everything if it is proved that she has been lying. The
best lawyers that money can buy will be trying to prove that there had
been no sex attack and the maid was making it all up.

In India, we have been pretty slow to debunk myths about sex attacks
and their perpetrators. However, there has been some movement forward.
The health ministry recently took a strong stand against the degrading
and traumatising practice of using the "two finger test" as a method
to collect medical evidence in rape cases. "It is supposed to assess
whether girls and women are 'virgins' or 'habituated' to sexual
intercourse", a 2010 report by Human Rights Watch had noted in a
scathing comment.

This is not enough. It has to be ensured that such recommendations are
followed in practice and across the country. There are other
impediments to justice as well. Rape is still defined very narrowly —
only forced peno-vaginal penetration is considered to be rape. The law
needs to change, as do mindsets.

The key lessons — sex attack is not seduction. Just because "nobody
died", to use a memorable phrase by one of DSK's friends, does not
mean no one was assaulted sexually. French feminists are out in the
streets protesting. They are supported by men who are brave enough to
question social mores. Activists worldwide, including in India, have
been flagging these issues for long. Everyone is innocent till proved
guilty. That applies to maids and moneybags alike.

Meanwhile, can we change the slogan please from "Liberty, Equality,
Fraternity" to "Liberty, Equality, End of Hypocrisy".
