implementation overview

In this small article we will show you the possible way of deploying Microsoft Business Solutions Great Plains for the market niche of large, mid-size and small reselling and distribution business in carpeting and floor covering, textile fabric. We will not be talking about fabric production, but rather cutting for the end-user or small retailer. Microsoft Great Plains itself in our case should be considered as a platform for light customization and modification. We TMll describe industry requirements and the way them to be implemented in Great Plains

¢Variable Length Rolls. Usually, when you place and order through your supplier " there is no way to know exact length of the roll or bolt. It might have 75 yards or 80 yards " you typically know the average length, say 77 yards and this is why you know what to expect in yards if you purchase 10 bolts

¢Inventory in Yards. When you receive the roll " you need to place it into inventory in exact yards. Typical method is to http://www.threedegreestraining.com/kris-letang-jersey assign lot number to the bolt and then associate the exact initial length in yards with this unique lot number. This is Great Plains Dexterity customization, which provides parallel unit of measure, associated with the lot number

¢Light Assembly. Bill of Materials would be probably too complex for cutting the fabric. This is why we suggest to deploy automatic inventory decrease and increase adjustments " you decrease number of yards in the roll and increase your finished good in the number of units assembled

¢Meter / Yard challenge. If you purchase from the supplier in China, Mexico, South East Asia or Europe " they measure their rolls in meters, not yards " so you need to implement automatic unit of measure translation and conversion. You resolve this on the level of your EDI " electronic http://www.mdcgraphics.com/dustin-byfuglien-jersey document interchange

¢Cut-beds tracking to original roll. If you are assembling/cutting something like billiard table beds " you would like them to be tracked to the original roll in the case of customer complaint. This http://www.threedegreestraining.com/craig-adams-jersey means that you will have to assign the same or modified lot number to the cut-bed

Windows XP Pro Product Key

Hey guys I finally got the dual boot working on my laptop and got my version of XP pro Rick Nash Jersey installed. As a student at Montclair State University we have a agreement with Microsoft where we receive free XP pro downloads. They product key that they gave me I used with too many computers (3) and now my computer is saying they key is invalid. I do not want my laptop to turn into my desktop and miss the activation time and have to go through a lot of trouble to get it genuine. Does anyone know of a free XP pro product key I could use to get it activated? I know there http://www.mdcgraphics.com/jeremy-roenick-jersey are tons of them floating around out there. any help is appreciated.

'Does anyone know of a free XP pro product key I could use to get it activated? I know there are tons of them floating around out there. any help is appreciated.'

IF you only have ONE (1) comoputer with that software installed (anyone can have computer problems, even with freebies) than I would think that, Ben Smith Retro Jersey Price with an explanation, they will understand.

Staying Positive During Change

I have trained and coached close to 5,000 professionals on 5 continents how to lead and deal with change. It began with the discovery of a tumor on the same night of the discovery of my wifes pregnancy with our first child. A year later, I was broke, with no income, a new baby and no way to pay for a place to live. Left with a masters degree, driving a delivery truck to earn money, and sleeping on the floor in my in-laws living room, I hit rock bottom. I remember the moment in their driveway when I turned on the truck and thought, maybe it is my thinking that is the problem.

Over the past years I have tried to figure out what I learned. I began to talk to other people who had succeeded Chris Kreider Jersey coming through challenges at work and at home. I became inspired by their stories and their lessons.

The YES! Attitude is an attempt to codify methods to stay positive when in the midst of change. YES! is a spirit, an attitude, and a vision. It is the personal conviction that anyone needs to thrive when everything around you is telling you to throw in the towel. It is also an acronym summarizing the lessons:

Y = Why Change? is the first question you need to answer

E = Expect Emotional Reactions, yours and others

S = Surround Yourself with Other Fun Loving Yes People

YES! is also like a muscle. If you don't use it, you lose it. If you lose it, you cannot overcome the challenges of change. History is full of stories of people that knew this. They worked out their YES! muscle continually. Thomas Edison didn't invent the light bulb but tried over 6,000 times to create a light bulb that would have sustainable light. Christopher Columbus had to say YES! to change for 10 years until he could find funding for his trip across the ocean. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Ghandi and other social leaders flexed his YES! muscle to lead people through struggles for power and equality.

YES! is a muscle http://www.mdcgraphics.com/cristobal-huet-jersey that must be kept strong so you can face and win the challenges of change.

Please join me in welcoming Lawrence Polsky with PeopleNRG.

It is a pleasure to be here at the world HRD Congress in Mumbai.

Here is the day it is supposed to be the most exciting positive day and I can be in dead in who knows http://www.zowiecomics.com/jonathan-quick-jersey how long. Some of that is an over dramatization and that is what we do when we get scared. I had the joy of life and the fear of death both at the same time.

You have to keep things fluid. Keep things moving, keep things changing, keep changing yourself. Keep pushing yourself to do new things. Because if you don't get comfortable with the uncomfortable, you are not going to good at leading other people.

Can I get a volunteer? What is your name. Ok John, put up your hands.

Lets try that again. I have to go the gym!

What happened? I pushed him and what did he do? He pushed back. Did I tell him to push back? No. I told John to put his hands up. I said get ready, put your hands up. And he pushed back.

Whenever you have an idea, no matter how good it is you have to expect to push back. And that is a challenge leaders have. And then they go back in the corner and complain that everyone is negative. The fact is that that is life. You have to expect that, plan for that, and move through it. As leaders what we have to do is to help people move past and through their fear. Close to 5,000 managers and professionals on 5 continents have been inspired and instructed by Lawrence. He has assisted dozens of organizations around the world in the areas of leadership, change management, employee morale, resistance to change and team building.

jersey and jackson maven dependency issues

I have just started building a web app using jersey and jackson. After initially getting up and running I decided that it made sense in the long run to convert the project to be a maven one. I'm very new to maven and it seems like I might have run into a dependency issue between jersey and jackson.

I put together a simple test to check that everything had been set up correctly after running into issues with some of my project tests that use jackson. I suspect the problem is caused by some dependency issue between jersey and jackson since it also uses jackson. I also suspect that way I cobbled have the pom file for my web app together could be problem. Here is the content of my pom with some slight naming changes (as I said before I'm new to using maven so I'd say this is a pretty ugly pom file)

As already mentioned, this is probably a version conflict (error message does suggest that something is compiled against 1.8, but an earlier version is being used somehow).

One thing that Slava Voynov Jersey I have noticed to cause issues is that versions http://www.mdcgraphics.com/bobby-hull-jersey of "core" and "mapper" jars may differ. In this case, for example, it sounds like mapper version 1.8 was being used, but core jar version was earlier. I added an entry in my pom Bobby Hull Jersey for jackson-asl-core and my tests all passed. I guessing that in my simple application the reference to jackson-asl-mapper caused the dependency jackson-asl-core to be pulled down correctly but in my application including jackson a version of jackson-asl-core was detected by maven as already being present; it ignored the versioning somehow and the conflict emerged. Does this sound like makes sense, I just trying to get a sense of how maven operates?

Yes, I think this is about how it goes. I, too, am trying to learn more about Maven; and handling of transitive dependencies with version numbers is not a simple task in itself. Finally, if Maven worked better with version ranges this might not be such a problem; but as things are, most poms have to specify exact version, which is usually becomes stale quite soon (Maven can support ranges, but in my experience it just Does Not Work Well :-/ )

American Tradition in child

The extreme cultural and historical differences between China and America directly affect the way these societies teach and train their children. Introduction A. Chinese Child-Rearing Philosophy B.

Influence of Tradition on Child-Rearing and Education A. Chinese 1. Ritual 2. Buddhism 3. Confucianism 4. Taoism B. American V. Conclusion_____________________________________________________________________ I. Introduction A. Chinese Child-Rearing Philosophy In an educational video concerning "Preschool in Three Cultures," child-rearing was demonstrated as a very structured, very organized system in which the parents bring their children to the preschool and the government takes the responsibility for teaching them and bringing them up. The government's policy of one child per household has caused the Chinese family to be more focussed and careful about child rearing. According to the video "Preschool in Three Cultures", the government would prefer that parents leave the education and upbringing of the child to them. This would enable the parents to focus on their work and be more productive for the system, and would provide better education and discipline for the child. Religion, if taught at all, is taught in the home, and is strongly discouraged by the government. Confucianism and Taoism are suppressed, and Buddhism is accepted as a form of discipline and meditation, allowing for focus of the mind. B. American Child-Rearing Philosophy Americans current child-rearing philosophy in the urban jungle seems to be "Let them have whatever they want as long as they don't have to bother me to get it." In the Heartland, however, parents are still very concerned that their child be raised right; values, morals, traditions, friends, family, good teachers with good hearts, and a place of worship they can attend without fear of personal or political persecution. Benjamin Spock, said "The more people have studied different methods of bringing up children the more they have come to the conclusion that what good mothers and fathers instinctively feel like doing for their babies is the best after all."2 Education and training of children has always been a priority in America, and many Presidents have spent a considerable amount of time improving the educational system to better provide for children and their future. President Kennedy once said "A child miseducated is a child lost."3 Recently there was an "educational summit", a sort of emergency meeting of the Governors and the President of the United States to evaluate the status of education in America and present plans to restructure or reformat American education so that their children would not fall so far behind their European and Asianneighbors. Concerns were raised that American children are far below the competition in math and science, and were barely keeping even with reading and language skills. Another criticism by educators in other countries is that English as a second language is a required course in most of their schools, but second languages in America and England are on a voluntary basis. This appears to produce an elitist attitude on the part of America and England, whether deliberate or not, and could be the cause for resentment on the part of those of other countries who are obligated to learn our language because we haven't taken the time Slava Voynov Jersey or effort to meet them on common ground. Spanish is taught and spoken inschools in Texas, Arizona, and California where there are higher concentrations of Spanish-speaking individuals, but the United States has a long way to go to make as significant an effort to communicate as Asian and European countries do. An example of the American attitude on language was expressed by William J. Secretary of Education; "Our common language is . . . English. And our common task is to ensure that our non-English-speaking children learn this common language."4 He also said "The elementary school must assume as its sublime and most solemn responsibility the task of teaching every child in it to read. Any school that does not accomplish this has failed."5 These viewpoints indicate a desire to educate and communicate, but to do it on America's terms. Abigail Adams, wife to the second President of the United States, John Adams, said "Learning is not attained by chance, it must be sought for with ardor and attended to with diligence."6 There are those who believe that America's need to be the biggest, fastest, strongest, richest, best, most powerful, has bred a bumper crop of overachievers, with a "dumper crop" (my quotes) of underachievers at home waiting to take over. An acquaintance who wishes to remain anonymous told me "American parents want the best for their kids, so they go out and work 80 hours a week to get it, never coming home, never showing interest in what goes on in their child's life, never understanding why kids join gangs, do drugs, and have sex at appallingly early ages. They don't see that their kid doesn't need the new shoes as much as they need a hug or a friendly, non-judgmental ear."7 Lawrence Kubie said "Today's family is built like a pyramid; with all the intrafamilial rivalries, tensions, jealousies, angers, hatreds, loves and needs focused on the untrained, vulnerable, insecure, young, inexperienced and incompetent parental apex . . . about whose incompetence our vaunted educational system does nothing."8 This attitude indicates the speaker's belief that the educational system should be responsible not only for training the intellect, but for invading the personal space of the home and teaching how to raise and be responsible for a family, a task previously handled by the parents of the subsequent generation. II. Educational Systems A. Chinese Educational System 1. Ancient Methods In ancient China, as to a lesser extent in modern China,religion and tradition played a very important role in the education and upbringing of children. Ancestor worship, Niklas Hjalmarsson Jersey For Sale complete with oral histories of the ancestors and the lessons they learned from the mistakes they made, along with ceremonies teaching proper respect, manners, and etiquette were an integral part of Chinese childhood. In "The Jade Enchantress", a work of fiction by E. Hoffmann Price, a young man whose father is head of his village has been sent to take the exams that will enable him to become a government employee and attain a position of power and prestige, even though he would rather spend his time carving jade and helping his brother take"their" woman through her pillow book. Taking and passing the exams was a way for people to rise above their station in life and acquire respect and honor for themselves and their families. "Spring Moon" by Bette Bao Lord is another work of historical fiction that tells a compelling story of a Chinese family and their fall from grace and prosperity to a minimal existence during the traumatic events that transpired from the turn of the century up through the 1970's. Spring Moon was raised in wealth and privilege, living behind gracious protective garden walls, only to be thrust out in the world as the winds of change blew strongly through her family. She was educated, which was at the time considered a waste for a girl, and she was strong-willed, which was another fault. Her strong will was amplified in the heart of her daughter Lustrous Jade, who became the epitome of the educated, determined, independent woman, taking a leadership role in every rebellion that came along, until finally she was consumed by her cause and her own zeal. Ancestor worship begins and ends the story, storytelling and lessons of etiquette, methods of learning and training, and the harsh realities of the lessons of life permeate the novel, communicating the broad range of family tradition, religion, and education that made up the life of one Chinese woman. 2. Modern Methods The Modern Chinese Educational System has become an automated industry for the production of future workers. The educational video "Preschool in Three Cultures" shows the beginning of the system, and hints at what lies ahead for the average Chinese student. In the average government-run Preschool there are boarders and day students. The government appears to prefer the boarders as they stand less likelihood of being spoiled by parents and grandparents who are focused on the child as a result of the governmental policy of one child per household. The children go through a medical screening every morning to ensure their health, they have structured meal-times, study-times, "free" times, and toilet-breaks. The children are expected to study hard so that they can become productive members of society. Their entire day is regimented and structured. They even use the toilet as a class at a common trough at a specified time. The theory is that it is important for children to learn to regulate their bodily functions and attune their needs to the needs of the group. Of course, if a child must use the toilet at a different time, they may. At meal time, children are instructed to take great care with the way in which they eat, as it is important to regulate that part of your body as well. Free time is the only time that appears to be unstructured and may be thought of as recess. There is no doubt that under this system, the children learn responsibility and how to work as a group. They have no choice -- a preset pattern of behavior andbeliefs is impressed upon them. Sadly, Simon Despres Jersey it does not appear that creativity is encouraged, and this is a tragedy as spontaneous creativity is greatest and most effortless in the very young. These young minds are molded into one way of thinking, and individuality is discouraged as it conflicts with group dynamics and interferes with the system. Steven W. Mosher in his book "China Misperceived" indicates that a number of events that have occurred in China must be taken into consideration in America's attempt to understand the Chinese. He says "I have striven to write an objective account of American perceptions of China. For many events this is easy. The ChineseCommunist party did drive the Nationalists off the Mainland, Chinese troops did cross over the Yalu in the Korean War, Mao did launch a Cultural Revolution, the Gang of Four was arrested, Deng Xiaoping did launch a wave of far-reaching reforms, and PLA (People's Liberation Army) troops did massacre pro-democracy demonstrators. America's ongoing judgments of China were colored and recolored by this progression of events."9 It is evident that many people do still hold to their traditions and religious beliefs in modern China. The tragedy of the Communist Government crushing the rebellious student Democratic faction in Tiananmen Square throws into sharp relief the struggle between government control and individual thinking. The students who think for themselves and fight for their ideals in spite of the formulaic way of life being crammed down their throats show the human need for freedom of thought and expression. B. American Educational System 1. 1500-1900's The early American Educational System left a great deal to be desired. Most of the education occurred at home, and most of that regarded practical matters more than any detailed study of Geography or History. The majority of early colonists were coming to America to escape religious persecution, and so religion understandablyplayed a very big role in the education of early American children. Of course, the colonists were educated in England, so American Education is beholden to a large extent to Great Britain for the style and approach to education over the years. As Louis Booker Wright of the Folger Shakespearean Library says "All the fundamental concepts which make up the kind of people we are today had theirmodern conception in the Tudor and Stuart periods."10 The Bible was used to teach spelling and reading, as this was the one book that most families owned or were familiar with. Only very basic math was taught, and trades were emphasized as a matter of course; as colonists in a new and often hostile land, every hand and back was needed for the furtherance of the colony. Children wereoften required to grow up fast, taking on adult responsibilities in many cases before they turned twelve. As time passed and technology advanced, schools were built, religion was still acknowledged but no longer dominated the educational experience, and teachers were designated to instruct the children in the basics, expanding eventually into broader areas of information than were available to the early settlers. In the late 1800's and early 1900's, one-room schoolhouses gave way to the more advanced schools. Expanding population meant larger schools; larger schools meant more teachers; more teachers meant administrators to see that things ran smoothly; administrators meant bureaucracy and red tape; and bureaucracy threatened to desensitize the system and process kids like cattle, not having the time to be in touch with the individual needs of individual children. 2. Modern Methods Modern Methods of educating children in America have been gleaned from a broad base of experience and expertise. Teachers, administrators, parents, psychologists, scientists, even students themselves, have worked together to provide working systems of education. A standard classroom in lower elementary would have one teacher and one or two teacher's assistants, and anywhere from 15 to 30 rambunctious children more interested in playing and having a good time than getting an education. The school is local to these children -- many walk to school, others ride buses that fetch them infrom up to 10-15 miles away. These children are taught the basics through demonstration and repetition; colors, letters, numbers, words, reading, etc. They are taught manners and respect, and in some extreme cases of bad behavior, physically disciplined when other lesser efforts have failed. "Living up to basic ethical standardsin the classroom -- discipline, tolerance, honesty -- is one of the most important ways children learn how to function in society at large."11 As they advance, more diverse items are thrown into the mix -- grammar, mathematics, history, geography, science, nature, etc. The children are called on to read books and give oral reports on what they've read. They are encouraged to share information with each other at appropriate "report" or "show and tell" times. They aretaken on field trips to farms, museums, factories -- wherever they can go to learn new things. Most communities have a "hands-on" museum where children can go and get involved with their learning on a physical rather than purely intellectual basis. On a junior-high and high-school level, the students are more sophisticated, and begin breaking up their school-day into specialties. An average day may have as many as seven periods, such as English, Algebra, Biology, Band, lunch, History, Phys. Ed., with a separate instructor and classroom for each specialty. Television, particularly public television, has taken on some of the responsibility for teaching our young. Shows such as "Sesame Street"TM or "Mister Roger's Neighborhood"TM teach the very young in an entertaining way, using songs and puppets and skits to show various types of responsible behavior as well as the basics of education. Most of the programs on American television are designed strictly for entertainment, and are leaning more and more to the lurid, sensationalistic side of the scale. "All television is educational television." claims Nicholas Johnson of the FCC(Federal Communications Commission), "The only question is what is it teaching?"12 Groucho Marx once commented "I read in the newspapers they are going to have 30 minutes of intellectual stuff on television every Monday from 7:30 to 8. . . . to educate America. They couldn't educate America if they started at 6:30."13 The Parent-Teacher Association (PTA) was established as a type of monthly town meeting on a local level between the parents and teachers of a particular school to discuss problems and solutions to situations that evolve in the educational environment. It enables both units to hold each other accountable for the way the children are being raised and educated, and strengthens, reinforces, and unifies them in their joint concern. It is at such meetings as these that you might here a comment like "If you promise not to believe everything your child says happens at this school, I'll promise not to believe everything he says happens at home."14 Also, "There must be such a thing as a child with average ability, but you can't find a parent who will admit that it is his child.15" Another method of schooling is less structured -- it's not a one-room schoolhouse, it's not a structured classroom situation, it looks more like a big brightly colored open warehouse complete with carpet and books, where students are guided in education by monitors, but are encouraged to teach themselves as much as possible. The Montessori Method, named after Italian Educator Maria Montessori, is a system of educating young children which emphasizes training of the senses and guidance intended to encourage self-education. This method is particularly helpful with students who have difficulty functioning properly in the traditional Americanclassroom. Peer Helping Programs are designed to encourage children to help educate each other; those at higher levels of education or development tutor or mentor others who have not yet achieved that level. The system is monitored and assisted by selected teachers, and the entire program is very structured, but is tailored to eachindividual school's needs and desires. Therefore, a peer-helping group in Baltimore,MD would interact very differently than one in Brooklyn, MI., or Burbank, CA. In an average American High School you may occasionally hear something like "Here's a book, here's your assignment, have it on my desk by nine o'clock tomorrow morning." This direct, crass approach to education resulted from the aforementioned bureaucracy of large schools. The teachers are overworked, underpaid, and underappreciated. The students lack the care at home and the individual attention needed at school to reinforce their self-image. But this is just the bleak side of the coin. The other side shows the joyous little children running into school to show off their pet turtle, pet rock, imaginary friend. Kids making friends, learning, taking part in their own rearing and education. Taking responsibility for their own actions and facing up to the challenges ahead. Influence of Tradition on Child-Rearing and Education A. Chinese 1. Ritual Shamanism and Ancestor worship may have been the beginning of the ritual practices of the Chinese. Shamans had spirit demons they consulted for the purpose of divining the future, settling disputes, and conversing with the dead. Ancestors, often revered simply for the fact they were dead, were still very much a part of Chinese lifeas a result of these practices. Chinese rituals, ceremonies, religious observances, traditional practices are all incorporated into the everyday life of the people, at least prior to the Communist Revolution. Many traditionalists still maintain shrines and observe rituals that may not be endorsed by the government. 2. Buddhism Buddhism has 307 million followers. The Buddha achieved enlightenment through meditation and gathered a community of monks to carry on his teachings. Buddhism teaches that meditationand the practice of good religious and moral behavior can lead to Nirvana, the state of enlightenment, although before achieving Nirvana one is subject to repeated lifetimes that are good or bad depending on one's actions (karma). The doctrines of the Buddha describe tempo

Only Rules as More Complaints are Filed with the EEOC

Title VII prohibits discrimination because of "national origin." The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, the agency charged with the enforcement of Title VII, defines national origin discrimination as the denial of equal employment Brandon Saad Jersey For Sale opportunity because of an individual's ancestry, place of origin, or because the individual possesses the physical, cultural, or linguistic characteristics of a national origin group.

The EEOC has consistently scrutinized English-Only policies very closely and has taken the position that such policies can be a proxy for national origin discrimination. In the EEOC's view only the most limited policies do not violate Title VII.

Given the amount of attention given to immigration issues on a national scale, the significant increase in national Deryk Engelland Jersey origin claims being filed with the EEOC in the last few years is no surprise.

Recently, the EEOC brought suit against a California Nursing Home company that prohibited Spanish-speaking employees from speaking Spanish to Spanish-speaking residents, and also while on breaks or in the parking lot of the facilities.

According to the EEOC, in addition to being required to comply with an overbroad English-Only policy that the employer did not apply even-handedly, it was alleged that Hispanic employees were given desirable work than non-Hispanic counterparts, were paid less, and promoted less often. In April 2009 the EEOC and the company settled for $450,000.

Hawaii employers are also finding it difficult to balance legitimate business needs and Hawaii employment practices law prohibiting ancestry or national origin discrimination. Hawaii law, HRS Chapter 378, prohibits discriminating against an employee in the terms or conditions of employment, because of their "ancestry." However, as a practical matter "ancestry" and "national origin" are synonymous under Hawaii law.

Hawaii law is arguably more expansive than Title VII in that employers are precluded from making pre-employment inquiries and requests for information which tend to lead to disclosure of the person's ancestry/national origin, unless the inquiry is justified by a bona fide occupational qualification.

Both the EEOC and the Hawaii Civil Rights Commission ("HCRC") have issued regulations addressing the issue of English-Only rules and whether http://www.threedegreestraining.com/jussi-jokinen-jersey and to what extent employers prohibiting foreign languages to be spoken in the workplace have violated the prohibition against national origin discrimination.

The EEOC and HCRC's regulations presume that blanket English-Only rules are per se unlawful. Their position also is that limited English-Only policies are lawful only if justified by business necessity. 2002 EEOC guidelines list the following examples where business necessity justifies an English-Only policy:

For communications with customers, coworkers, or supervisors who speak only English;

in emergencies or other situations where workers must speak a common language to promote safety;

for cooperative work assignments in which the English-Only rule is needed to promote efficiency;

to enable a supervisor who only speaks English to monitor the performance of an employee whose job duties require communication with coworkers or customers.

New Jersey event hosts top footballrecruits for 2011 and beyond

At an imposing 6-foot-7, 265 pounds, Lewter lined up at defensive end in the linemen drills, impressing with his quick feet and burst of speed off the edge. Named the top lineman at the event, Lewter lived up to his billing.

"Lewter is very good, bends well for a big man and has great hands," said Brian Martin, the founder of TEST Sports Clubs, who staffed and operated the Premier Showcase. "Last year, we had Sharrif Floyd at this event and he came away with top big man honors. This year, it was Jamar who, like Floyd, was the most dominant lineman of the event."

And top colleges have been on the Lewter's bandwagon for a while, with offers from Auburn, North Carolina, Pitt, New Mexico and Utah already coming in. He says he is getting 10 letters a day and that coaches are telling him that offers will be coming in soon from other national programs. has had his mailman notice the increase of letters into the Lewters' home.

"He told me he is proud of me," Lewter said of the mailman's reaction to the extra postage coming his way.

Unlike most recruits at the event who are tight-lipped in regards to revealing a top program, Lewter said that North Carolina is his early favorite right now and that the program has been utilizing defensive tackle Marvin Austin to help entice him to Chapel Hill. Lewter attends Ballou, the high school program which produced Austin.

"I look at myself and see me filling his shoes there someday," Lewter said of the Tar Heels.

Offers piling up for explosive RB Huggins Savon Huggins has been on the national radar since his freshman year, and the soon-to-be senior showed why he will be a dominant force for Jersey City's St. Peter's Prep this fall. The running back has been a highly recruited playmaker since his sophomore season, with a rare blend of size and breakaway speed. Huggins impressed with good hands as a receiver in the passing drills, having shown marked improvement in his route running over the past year.

On signing day, Huggins hauled in an offer from Alabama's Nick Saban. This past Friday he got an offer from Notre Dame in the mail. With the offers piling up, Huggins will continue to be one of the most sought-after backfield prospects in the nation. Along with 'Bama and ND, Huggins has received offers from Penn State, Rutgers, Miami and Florida -- but there is currently no leader in the mix.

"Things are going well and I'm excited about everything that has been happening so far," Huggins said. "But right now, I am really just focusing on getting ready for my last season at the Prep."

Huggins also vowed that this year, Prep will beat Don Bosco, the North Jersey program that finished this year as the No. Ebron has the look and build of USC wide receiver Kyle Prater, but projects as a tight end. He's 6-5 and 225 pounds, "but I'm still growing," said Ebron. His mom called him on Saturday afternoon before the event with some exciting news.

"My mom got the mail and told me that I just got offers from Alabama and West Virginia," Ebron said. "I was http://www.zowiecomics.com/jeff-carter-jersey blown away."

Working out with the wide receivers, Ebron had no problems with the physical play of the defensive backs on the field, easily shedding their bumps and showing crisp route running for a player of his size. It was tough to gauge his hands as a number of balls were thrown just out of his grasp, but Ebron looks to be a raw player with a big upside. In addition to the two recent offers from the Crimson Tide and the Mountaineers, he also includes North Carolina, Clemson and Rutgers in his top five. The Scarlet Knights offered him on Friday after his visit and tour.

"They called it the nickel tour, but sure it felt like a dollar to me," Ebron said. "I really liked it and the family atmosphere of all the coaches and the entire place. has a tradition of sending impact players to the college level, and it appears that Vance Roberts is prepared to continue that tradition.

A compact 5-8 defensive back, Roberts may have been the most physical of all the defenders in one-on-one drills, drawing the ire of several receivers for his aggressive play. Roberts used his hands as well as any defensive back at the Premier Showcase and showed good footwork in recovery and anticipation. Having already received an offer from Syracuse two weeks ago, Roberts is anticipating an offer coming in from Maryland when he visits College Park this Tuesday. A third offer could well be coming in on Feb. 27 during a visit to Wake Forest, another program talking with him regularly.

With Roberts, it all comes down to making his presence known on the field. It's not enough to be seen -- Roberts stands out with long dreadlocks and prominent tattoos on his biceps -- he also engages in plenty of talking and mixes it up on the field with the best of them, no matter the size.

"I think a wide receiver can smell fear, and I don't want them to smell that on me," the diminutive Roberts said. "If you mix it up, you take it to them. You don't want to sit back, you want to jam them early."

Byrd takes flight Easily the fastest player at the event this year was Damiere Byrd of Timber Creek, New Jersey. Army National Combine in early January, the fastest time at the event for top juniors. What made his fast feet more impressive is that the turf field at the Alamodome is notoriously slow.

Right now, Byrd holds six offers in hand: Stanford, South Carolina, Rutgers, Duke, Maryland and Connecticut. He hopes to visit every program that has offered him by this spring, having already gone to three.

"[South Carolina] is a great campus, and I really liked it down there. Obviously the weather is great down there and not like up here Tomas Vokoun Jersey in Jersey. Rutgers -- its home. It is close and I like that my family and friends could come to see me play," Byrd said. "UConn is a different campus then the others, more out in the country in the mountains and the valleys. I think I passed some haunted houses out there when we went out to visit."

Byrd said that he is hearing from several other top programs, including Ohio State, Cal, Oregon and Florida. The Gators are using an enticing recruiting line to attract his attention.

"They think I can come in and play for them in like a Percy Harvin-type role," said Byrd, who said he'd prefer to play offense in college.

Quick notes Deion Barnes, a powerfully built defensive prospect from Northeast High School in Philadelphia, recently returned from a visit to South Carolina that he termed as "really good." The Gamecocks appear to be the leader for this lineman who showed good speed off the end coupled with his impressive frame. . Despite having some tendinitis that shelved him for the event, Pottsgrove, Pa.'s Terrell Chestnut still attended the event. The running back holds offers from Pitt, Rutgers and West Virginia http://www.thisisboating.com/ and said he too is getting a heavy amount of interest from South Carolina. . DeMatha High School is a dominant program in Maryland, and Darrien Harris looks to be a good prospect. Harris did well as a defensive back in drills and ran crisp routes as a wide receiver when he switched to the offensive side of the ball. . Another south Jersey product, Devon Cajuste of Holly Cross, occasionally struggled against physical defensive backs, but the wide receiver showed good hands on several occasions and reacted well to underthrown balls. . Several VIP's were on hand for the event, including Tampa Bay Buccaneers lineman and former Rutgers product Jeremy Zuttah, who carefully watched his younger brother Jonathan perform -- the younger Zuttah is not as tall as his NFL brother, but showed very good technique at the event. In addition, Florida-bound Sharrif Floyd, who participated last year, showed up to support a teammate in the event. Former four-star recruit Logan Ryan of Rutgers and Scarlet Knights' starting quarterback Tom Savage were also taking in the Premier Showcase from the sideline. "I really don't miss the pressure of these events," Savage said. . Kyshoen Jarrett from East Stroudsburg, Pa., impressed in the secondary at the event. On Monday, he hauled in an offer from Temple, his fifth offer so far . The youngest athlete at the event was Philadelphia's Marquis Edwards, a freshman who started this season for the always strong Northeast program. Edwards played in the FBU Youth All-American Bowl last year (an event for top middle school talent) and physically looked like he belonged at this event.

Haves for Any Mardi Gras Party

The Mardi Gras season, known in the Roman Catholic Church as the liturgical season of Epiphany, lasts from January 6th of every year until the day before Ash Wednesday. The Tuesday before Ash Wednesday, which begins the season of Lent, is known as Mardi Gras. Mardi Gras means "Fat Tuesday." The season is filled with parades, parties, and traditional Mardi Gras food. From the beginning of January till the end of February, Louisiana celebrates the season with crawfish boils and the ever-present King's Cake. As the Cajuns say, laissez les bons temps roulez (let the good times roll)!

Cajun Boiled Crawfish: Mardi Gras Food at its Best

Crawfish, also known as crawdads, crayfish, and mud puppies, look like tiny lobsters. They are raised in rice fields in southern Louisiana as a second cash crop. Crawfish come into season during the months of the year which contain the letter "R" - September through April. During this time, crawfish boils, pronounced "bowls" in the South, are a large part of the Mardi Gras festival season. To many Cajuns, crawfish and Mardi Gras food are synonymous.

A crawfish boil is a very casual and fun event. Long picnic tables are put together under a canopy outdoors. The tables are spread with newspaper for a table cloth. Rolls of paper towels and bottles of Tabasco sauce dot the tables, while ice chests hold chilled soft drinks and beer nearby. Loud, and often live, Cajun or Zydeco music provides musical entertainment. Often couples get up to dance.

Crawfish are boiled in huge stock pots with potatoes and corn on the cob. A spicy creole blend of salt, cayenne, and black pepper is heavily sprinkled over this mix. The pot of crawfish is then dumped out onto the tables, and the crowd helps themselves to mounds of boiled crawfish. The shells of the crawfish are peeled off, revealing tender, white tails. Some people like to suck the "mustard" out of the heads of the crawfish, while others leave that practice to the hard core crawfish lovers. Each person is expected to eat approximately five pounds of this traditional Mardi Gras food in a sitting.

King's Cake: the Epitome of the Epiphany Season and Mardi Gras Food
