Here's a list of some memorable ones who failed for a variety of reasons:Larry Brown, CB, Oakland Raiders, 1996Comment: Brown, the MVP of Super Bowl XXX, should have given a percentage of his contract to Neil O'Donnell, who gifted him two interceptions in the title game. Brown started only one game for the Raiders after signing a five year, $12.5 million deal.Dale Carter, CB, Denver Broncos, 1999Comment: Broncos valued his talent and chose to overlook character issues. After signing a four year, $22.8 million deal, he was suspended the entire 2000 season for violating the NFL substance abuse policy.Comment: The three time Pro Bowler signed a four year, $25 million deal, but was gone after one season. He clashed with coach Butch Davis and offensive coordinator Terry Robiskie.Alvin Harper, WR, Tampa Bay, 1995Comment: How much of a player's success is attributed to teammates? The Buccaneers found out the hard way after signing Harper to a four year, $10.6 million deal. Without Troy Aikman and Michael Irvin, he couldn't replicate his success with the Super Bowl winning Dallas Cowboys.Albert Haynesworth, DT, Washington Redskins, 2009Comment: Considered by some the biggest bust in free agency's 20 year history. He lasted just twno seasons with the Redskins after signing a seven year, $100 million deal. His lack of commitment and conditioning played large factors.Neil O'Donnell, QB, New York Jets, 1996Comment: O'Donnell opted to leave a consistent winner for a big payday a five year deal worth $25 million. He went 8 12 as a Jets starter.Nate Odomes, CB, Seattle Seahawks, 1994Comment: Due to injuries, the former Buffalo Bills standout never played a game with the Seahawks despite a four year, $8.4 million deal.Lawrence Phillips, RB, San Francisco 49ers, 1998Comment: His one season by the Bay is best remembered for missing a block that led to a career ending concussion for Steve Young.

The retrenchment to the UK, which will affect thousands of jobs, is the latest plan in efforts to halt a relentless slide in sales and profits. UK stores and product ranges will be revamped. M has already tried to spruce up its image by hiring a top clothes designer and launching ambitious advertising campaigns. But the results are yet to be seen. New chairman Luc Vandevelde has given himself a year to turn the M ship around. Can he do it? Will Marks Spencer ever return to its glory days at the top of the retailing pecking order? Or has the shop simply lost the plot for good? This debate is now closed. Read a selection of your comments below. It was a big blow to M shoppers when it was decided to close their stores in . The prices were a little bit more than say Walmart but the quality was always there. But the biggest blow was no longer being able to buy M foods, not a large selection but enough to keep us happy. We now have to wait until we visit the UK (providing the company is still in business) to enjoy their goodies. As for closing their Paris store I think the management must be way off base to do such a thing. Let us all hope that the new CEO will turn the company around so that shoppers will still be able to say I bought some things at Marks today. R. Sinclair,Everything that I am wearing at the moment, bar my shoes, is M have always bought underwear from them and they have traditionally been my automatic port of call for suits, ties, shirts etc for work. Until recently that is. M nowadays appear to be under the mistaken impression that it is price that has driven people away and has reduced prices by reducing the quality. The shirt I have on now has washed poorly and is like a limp rag compared to some of my others. I shall be looking elsewhere for its replacement if M do not go back to their old UK suppliers and give value for money rather than simply low prices. If I want to wear cheap tat then I can get it for less at plenty of other places. Strategically M have become stuck in the middle. Certainly their clothing market is neither appealing to the younger fashion market to whom the brand is synonymous with adult conservative clothing or the older market who will have noticed that the quality of garments has been compromised as M has tried to produce more 'stylish' clothing. They really need to decide which way to go, but to try and please to distinctly different markets simultaneously will be commercial suicide. The British public has turned into a load of moaners. M has through the years offered real value for money. While you could say they are expensive the quality has always been good. I have bought numerous suits from them, they offer the best choice of mix and match sizes anywhere. The food halls always offer that special something you cannot find in other supermarkets. The staff are always courteous and helpful, and before you may think I work for them, I don't. I just wanted to send a positive message for a change. Ian,I can only echo the thoughts of my fellow ex pats here. The Brussels M does very well (it seems to me, I can't speak about the other three branches in ) in the food section. We're always there buying something so perhaps they should concentrate on that area. The staff ARE friendly and they've left out a suggestion book for us to write in which has become a petition in all but name. I signed it on Saturday and noticed remarks in French and Dutch so the locals also want it to remain open. A friend tells me that she joined a long queue to sign it today. I just hope the management listens. But as an American and long time Brooks Brothers shopper, I am delighted that M is selling off Brooks Brothers. Since buying this icon of traditional American dress, M has reinvented it as a fashion conscious clothier. But I don't want fashion. I want a place where I can buy the stodgy old 3 button sack suits that I have worn for years. I wish M well and hope that it will soon regain its reputation for quality that has served it so well. M problem is that they infuriate their customers by continually changing the store layout which results in people wandering around lost, confused and highly irritated, when all they wanted to do was find the yoghurt stand. Futhermore, they bring out a product (either clothes or food), wait for it to become extremely popular and then discontinue it with sadistic glee.

Write down the reason why you want to lose weight. Maybe it's to be healthier, live longer, look more attractive, or get slim for a special occasion.

Glycemic IndexGet the Skinny on Your Fat CellsHow "Fat" are your fat cells? Recent studies have shown that our number of fat cells develop during childhood and teen years and remain constant throughout adulthood. So, what can you do if you have more than your fair share of them? Did you know there are foods that can actually expand your fat cells and foods that will help burn your fat as fuel and shrink your fat cells? Do you think that could help you in your effort to lose weight? I'm going to talk about which foods actually plump up your fat cells and are primary causes of weight gain and major barriers to weight loss. Just by finding some alternatives to these fat storing foods, you will begin changing the way your body metabolizes and see a trimmer waistline in days. White and fluffy makes you puffy You may already be familiar with the words glycemic index (GI). Exactly what is it? And why is it so important for losing fat? The GI measures how quickly foods that contain carbohydrates raise your blood glucose levels. High GI foods like white potatoes, white bread, white rice and most sweets spike our glucose levels and quickly release insulin, the hormone that sends glucose to our cells for fuel. When the glucose gets absorbed too fast it gets stored as fat. By eating lower GI rated foods like whole grains, sweet potatoes, broccoli, etc. the glucose levels increase gradually, absorb more slowly and get burned as fuel for energy. The result: a body that begins to flush the fat from the cells and looks leaner and more toned! Eat balanced meals Besides substituting high GI foods with foods containing whole grains and fiber, eat snacks and meals with good ratios of protein, fat and carbohydrates. Lean protein should be a core part of your meal planning. Lean protein allows you to maintain muscle mass while losing weight, which keeps your metabolism running at full speed. Cutting back on protein during weight loss, on the other hand, contributes to a loss of muscle mass and a slower metabolism. Lean protein is also an excellent choice when it comes to satisfying hunger and keeping blood sugar levels steady.

Brush your teeth, put your plate away, make your bed, don forget your hat, put on your shoes the list feels endless. I don know what it is about putting on shoes but I used to have battles with both my children to put their shoes on. I remember one time screaming at Jake to put his shoes on because I had told him, maybe ten times to do it, and he hadn He was playing or getting distracted or pretending he didn know how. Then I lost it, he burst into tears and his shoes still weren on. I sure the neighbours must have thought I was balmy yelling about shoes! Before I became a mother I would never thought that I could end up screaming about something so trivial. After I thought about what had happened and I was shocked that I had exploded over such a simple thing but as any parent knows it the simple things that trip you up. The positive out of all of that was that I knew there had to be a better way. I started off by asking Jake to put his shoes on and then just expecting him to do it. I refused to repeatedly tell him what to do. That helped but it wasn quite enough. Then I started asking him what he needed to do to get ready and after a short period of time, bingo! He got that going out meant shoes on. Sure there was the odd grumble but nothing like before. If you tired of being your child personal alarm then try asking them questions instead. Questions like do you need to do to get ready? if you going out somewhere. Or do you do after you finished your dinner? when they get up and walk away from the dinner table with their plate and glass sitting where they left them. Or you have everything you need? when they are about to begin their homework or go outside and play ball. What is the difference between these two approaches? Well the first means you have to do all the thinking and all your child has to do is follow your instructions (it surprising how difficult that sometimes can seem for your child!). Don get me wrong there is a time and place for straight out instructions but in many instances there is a better way and that way is by asking questions in order to get your child to think for themselves about what they are doing and what they need to do next. If you consistently use this strategy then over time you will not even need to ask the question to prompt them into action. They will just do what needs to be done. No, really, it does work. Give it a try, you may be surprised. I been following the ask, don tell strategy for some time now with my two boys and ok, we do have the odd hiccough in the system but on the whole it works well and saves me the endless round of rote orders. The best evidence I have that it works is that when we are getting ready in the morning and I tell them I going upstairs to brush my teeth they know that is their cue to put on their shoes, collect their bags and lunch boxes and strap themselves into the car. Then I come down and off we go. It makes getting out the door soooo much easier. There is still the odd drama about which shoe goes on which foot or delays while they negotiate which toys to select and take with them in the car but even in amongst all that, it is still a dramatically streamlined routine compared to what it was and as a result, the odd fuss can be easily accommodated and rarely escalates to a stand off.
