I got engaged in Hoboken
Manning, speaking at the seventh annual Ole Miss Ladies Football Forum on Saturday, confirmed earlier reports that he got engaged in March to his longtime girlfriend, Abby McGrew.
Manning and McGrew met as students at the University of Mississippi, aka Ole Miss. She is a Nashville, Tenn., native who now lives in Manhattan and is a designer of evening wear and -- conveniently -- wedding dresses. He has a seasonal job, working mostly outdoors except for the occasional domed stadium.
At home. A home-made candlelit dinner, her favorite CD on the stereo, a bottle of bubbly chilling in the fridge, and just a few steps away from the bedroom for some post-engagement celebration. But remember, the Giants were 3-5 at home last year. Odds: 3-to-1.
Amanda's. Classy, intimate, elegant. Great risotto. But Amanda's is the scene for many proposals and therefore might be too public a spot for the famously low-key Manning. And wouldn't it be just like his older brother, Peyton, to propose two minutes later at a neighboring table? Odds: 5-to-1.
Pier A Park. Ah, a romantic walk along the Hudson waterfront! And if the proposal doesn't go well, the huge lawn provides enough room for Eli to roll out, pump fake and throw it down the middle. On the other hand, might have been too chilly in March for an outdoor proposal. Odds: 8-to-1.
The Hoboken Little League Field. Good hot dogs and breathtaking views of New York City. Plus, a chance you'll run into Adam Wade. On the downside, wrong sport. Odds: 10-to-1.
Hoboken Terminal. Maybe Eli captured the nostalgia and romance of 1940s movies by proposing just as an NJ Transit train left the station. (It's more dramatic if you can shout out your proposal while theatrically leaning out of the doorway of the departing train, but the conductors frown on that.) Odds: 15-to-1.
Stevens Institute of Technology. Nothing says "I love you" like a tour of the New Jersey Center for Microchemical Systems. Or how about proposing on bended knee in the Highly Filled Materials Institute? There's no better place in Hoboken to investigate, both experimentally and theoretically, the rheological behavior, microstructure, processability and ultimate properties of highly filled materials. Odds: 20-to-1.

Learn How To Dress Up Your Presentation The Easy Way
Honoring individuals for their achievements may say a great deal about the person but can also demonstrate the sincere appreciation of the one awarding and recognizing the recipients?success. Everyone enjoys receiving awards and being recognized for their efforts. Many times our trophies and plaques are proudly displayed in a prominent place in the home or office. This may be a wall, trophy case or fireplace mantel that in some environments can represent a small shrine.
Reflecting back on awards that have captured my attention, it? always been the logo or graphic picture that first caught my eye. After looking at the design (or the structure of the award itself), I then focus my eyes towards the inscription engraved on the plaque.
There are numerous types of awards from appreciation, acknowledgement, retirement, sports and more. One of the easiest ways to dress up your presentation and make it stand out among others is done by simply applying graphics to the item you are presenting. By adding or implementing a cool design, you will give more personality to the award and make it more attractive to the recipient and the individuals who view it.
Adding clip art or logos to your presentation can be done at a small expense and at times even free, while adding value to the award. Usually the organization or company giving the presentation has their logo available in print or in a digital format that can be reproduced easily. Simply request to receive their insignia in the computer format you need. Now days, more and more company? have their logo already available on CD that will work within the environment of your graphics software. Many times this is easily downloaded from the associations website or may be emailed directly to your address.
If for some reason a logo or design you wish to reproduce is not readily available, you can always have it created or have one ?igitized?to meet your needs. This particular format is one of the more universal files of type, which many of your leading software programs can import into their layout screen. Additionally, this type of format can be used for other types of applications too. The key to creating any image is to better understand the application (or process) in which the design is going to be reproduced. If you are unsure, it? always best to contact a professional digitizing company to assist you with the production or reproduction of the logo.
You can find many sources on the World Wide Web that can help you from beginning to end, with logo design or clip art images all ready to engrave or print for most any application. The quickest way to locate some of these vendors is by typing in a ?eyword?at any of your favorite search engines search bar.
By using search engines to ?earch?for a specific type of logo or desired application for creating your awards, this enables you to locate numerous choices much faster and compare their services and/or products on line.
Once you begin to settle in on a company to assist you with your award creation or logo digitizing process, ask them what other type of industry applications they service. One of the reasons you want to acquire this information is for future uses of your digitized image. You may only need to have your logo laser engraved today however, next time you may need to have a banner created with the same design. If your vendor can create your logo to work with both applications without a re-work, it may same you time and money for up coming awards and presentations.
You don? need to know every finite detail for dressing up your presentations. My suggestion is that by adding logos or a graphic design to your awards, it adds value and makes your item more attractive. Connecting with a cutting edge technology companies will help you create these types of designs and have your recipients proud to display their trophy for all to see.

Secrets to Posing Your Nude Models
The particular type of shoot you're doing, combined with the market you're potentially shooting for, will have the most significant influence on the poses you will want to get from a model within each set of images. For example, if you're hoping to sell a specific set of pictures to a magazine or website such as Hustler or Hustler's online presence (or the thousands of other sites that feature similar content) you'll definitely need to include a large number of explicit, open-leg poses. In contrast, if you're shooting for an outlet that features "Fine-art" nude photography, there is little, if any, need to include explicit poses.
Additionally, poses that will work well when shooting "Teen" pics are very different from the ones that will work well when shooting "MILF" pics. For example, in this specific case, you would want to shoot the teen model in poses that help to emphasis the simple beauty and innocence that fans of this style desire. However, when shooting older woman, you'll typically want the poses to be more overtly sexual and explicit.
It's important to know that you can easily shoot more than one unique image while the model remains in a single pose. For example, your first shot of a specific pose might include the model's full body; however, on your next few shots, you might want to zoom in on a specific body part to capture a close-up from the same pose. Additionally, as you can imagine, the same pose from a model can appear very different by simply altering your shooting angle.
Obviously, it's up to you to determine how explicit you want your work to be. However, if one of your desires is to make money with your photography as quickly and easily as possible, you'll probably want to focus on creating images for the "Adult" market (the market for "Fine-art" work is small by comparison).
Thus, if you want to shoot for "Adult" publications and websites, you'll have to include poses that contain a great deal of explicit sexuality. As I mentioned earlier, these sets require a large number of "spread-shots" and similarly erotic poses. In order to learn what poses work well for different types of shoots, I suggest you do the same thing that every photographer has done: Study the work of others and experiment with different ideas. Only by studying the work of others can you eventually create a style of your own. In other words, not even Jimi Hendrix started out playing the guitar like Jimi Hendrix.
You will benefit greatly if you study the techniques that are used by photographers whose work you admire. Try to identify the subtle methods they use to make great images. If you don't have any favorite photographers at this time, simply study the magazines, websites, or galleries where you would like to see your own work appear.
A few of the photographers whose work I admire greatly are Helmut Newton, Steven Meisel, and Sante D'Orazio. Primarily, these men are known for their fashion and portrait work. However, they all have an amazingly creative touch and an uncanny ability to inject a strong sense of sexuality into everything they shoot.
Michael Charles is a professional photographer based in Los Angeles, California. For over a decade, Michael has shot exclusively in the world of nude, erotic, and adult-oriented photography. His work has been featured in hundreds of national and international publications and appears on a wide variety of prominent websites.

Ok, the first alternative of using your credit/ debit card can be expensive, especially if you're addicted to the game. Try explaining to your buddies that you can't go out for a drink because you spent your money to purchase cityville cash and/or energy. Worst yet, try explaining to your girlfriend that you can't take her out to the movies because you've 'invested' your real money in cityville.
