According to the report, basketball shoes that are sold at about one thousand Yuan a pair will increase five to ten percent, and then reach to fifty to one hundred Yuan. The Chinese Nike said that they have not received the notice. With the increase of the labor forces, raw materials and transportations' cost, the big brand sports goods Nike can not bear any more. In this morning, it was reported by the "Wall Street Journal" of the United States that in the fall of this year, Nike will rise the price of its products to five percent to ten percent. According to the report, we can learn that in the fall of this year, Nike LeBron X Nike Plus is going to be launched by Nike. There is motion sensor inside the shoes, so this version of upgraded shoes can help you know the height that has been jumped by athletes. With regard to it that was sold at the price of 315 dollars, Nike fans all stared their big eyes. "The price is definitely the most expensive one". Actually; there is the foundation version simultaneously at the time when this upgraded sports shoes version was released. It was sold at the price of 180 dollars, but the price has already been higher than the 170 dollars last year. With the analysis of the "Wall Street Journal", Nike is going to increase the price of its shoes and clothes to five percent to ten percent with the increase of the labor forces, raw materials and transportation's cost. There was a style of Jordan basketball shoes, which was sold at one thousand Yuan or so, and we can take it as an example. After the price change, it will be sold at the higher price of fifty to one hundred Yuan or so. What's more, it was pointed out by the report that Nike started to be famous for its high prices since the first pair of "Air Jordan" was launched. In this year's December, the new version series of the "Air Jordan" is going to be released. Moreover; the new version will be priced at 185 dollars. Compared to the version that was released in 1985 and was priced at 64.99 dollars (if calculated as today's dollar price, it is 138.38 dollars) . Due to the inflation factor, the price was adjusted up to thirty three percent. It was not the whole picture, because Nike's price increase was also reflected in the low end products. The enduring "Converse Chuck Taylor All Star" sports shoes were sold at fifty dollars, which was higher than the previous year's forty five dollars. When Chinese Nike's public relations received the reporters interview of the "Legal Evening News" this morning, it was said that until now, they have not received the notice of price increase. According to the present information, there is no plan to increase the price. In this fall; however, we leant from the report of the "Wall Street Journal" that Nike will raise its price to five to ten percent. She said that the companies will not respond.

Several years passed before the plow designs were put to use. The plow made of wood was attached to a cart drawn by a team of horses through the snow covered streets. until the steam trains arrived and made their appearance several years later. They pushed their way through heavy drifts with giant plows attached to their front ends. Salt was used in a few cities, but was not appreciated because it ruined the streets for sleighing and damaged the shoes and clothing of pedestrians. Plows were a necessity to city dwellers, enabling winter transportation to recover more rapidly from storms than in previous years. However, this solution was accompanied by a new round of problems, some of which remains with us today. Plowing cleared the main streets for traffic, but effectively blocked the side roads and sidewalks with huge, uneven mounds of compacted snow. Does this sound familiar to you? Businessmen and shop owners initially hailed the success of the plow, but later complained and even brought lawsuits against the plowing companies. Gas and diesel engine's also changed the snowplow machine , leading to motorized dump trucks and plows in the early 1900's . Many cities rushed to update their snow removal fleets, abandoning most of their horse drawn carts. In conjunction with the new trucks, cities began to use (Caterpillar tractors) known as "HOLT Cat" equipped with plow blades. To haul the snow away, they used steam shovels, cranes, and railway cars to get the snow off the streets and dumped into the rivers, and water ways. However, the need for laborers was a must to make sure the areas where snow removal machine could not get, the laborers could. Then Barber Green snow loader, was successful and several cities purchased snow loaders that same winter. The snow loader was an ingenious piece of machinery. Riding on tractor treads, it was equipped with a giant scoop and a conveyor belt. As the snow was plowed, it was forced up , caught by the conveyor belt which carried it up and away from the street into a chute at the top where it was dropped into a dump truck parked underneath. It effectively made snow removal easier and more effective for the cities by making the process much less labor and time intensive. However, this was all great. But you have to think of then and now to really get the understanding of how much we have advanced in snow removal from then until now. Back in the beginning of the 1900's the word hydraulic wasn't even in the vocabulary like it is today. The snow plow operators of that time was exposed to the winter climate as the were working removing snow in storms, they did not have a climate control cab. The plow designs where also primitive, They had big bull nose one way plows like you see on trains today . The ability to move snow from one side to the other while moving was not even an idea. Today an operator can change the radio with one button while moving snow with another button at the same time. Snowplows have certainly come along way. The advancement you can see just in the past 20 years. Snowplow pumps where driven on a belt off the engine pulley, the more you would rev the engine up the quicker the plow would move. Now snowplows are run electrical over hydraulic with electric motors and solenoid valves, quicker ,lightweight, and can be installed in smaller area's. There is also big change with using laser guided devices to assist the snowplow operator in locating the roadways he needs to plow, while looking at a big white blanket. Snow removal has come a long way and will continue to change in the next decade. Air Jordan 11 Low IE Black Varsity Red,A year ago, tried " barefoot" running out of curiosity and has never looked back. Over time, the Albany runner has gradually built up the miles wearing FiveFingers, a specialty shoe that looks like a foot with a rubber sole. when the first sandal was developed. Since then, some tribes in Mexico and Kenya have gone barefoot regularly. More recently a book titled "Born to Run," published a decade ago, revitalized the interest in a broader population. "The theory is that our feet were designed correctly without the addition of padded running shoes," said , 23, of Stamford. "Most shoes nowadays over engineered and promote heel striking. You have a lot of cushioning, but still a lot of shock stress on the joints. It's why runners tend to have knee and hip injuries, said Allen, who works at Cross Fit gym in Stamford and is an occasional member of the Stamford Road Runners. Barefoot running, which is actually done in a simple uncushioned shoe, puts you more on the ball of your feet. Without stabilizers, this forces muscles in the ankle up along the calf to stretch forward, which tends to put you on your arch. Allen said most of the running he does is with minimal footwear or barefoot. "I feel a lot more I like to do trail running I feel more in tune with the act of running and my environment. It's not really the kind of thing you can do straight through, so it encourages a stop and go approach. Instead of taking long, loping strides, you take shorter ones. It's supposed to be safer and more efficient." Many people wear the Vibram FiveFingers footwear, "which is like gloves for the feet," said Allen. "Still there is a barefoot running community that is fundamentalist and will encourage people to only wear Vibrams as a transition." Delaney wears the simplest footgear it basically just has a bottom on trails, pavement and in 20 degree weather. He says he feels "invincible" as underused foot and leg muscles gain strength. Along the way, he has avoided ankle rolls over pot holes and stumbles on uneven terrain, while improving his times. "At first, I was concerned about injuries. A lot of friends said I was crazy to try them, but I'm running strong," Delaney said. "You feel the road more; you're more aware, and the long runs don't seem as long." A short time ago, Delaney would have been on the fringe, but he's one of a growing number who use them to solve nagging injury problems, reverse flat and high arches and wear them doing almost anything, including water sports, hiking, household chores, yoga and even snowmobiling. Some just think they're cool. As the name suggests, the super lightweight "flat" slips on each toe like a glove. In the KOS model, laces are replaced by a single Velcro strap, a soft velvety upper takes the place of perforated leather, while a thin rubberized sole is the only thing between skin and pebbles, glass and metal objects. Putting them on can be tricky at first. You spend extra time wiggling your toes to fit snugly. The one size fits all "fingers" means there isn't a perfect fit, leaving extensions of fabric hitting the ground. This actually helps your gait. Initially odd, the "longer toes" provided a cushion and balance to ride higher on the ball of your foot. They grip the road's contours like the paws of a cat, creating new sensations for the legs. Barefoot running has been around forever, but it wasn't until Vibram launched the product in 2002 that it took hold. Sales have jumped to 9 million pairs in 2009 from 2 million in 2007, leading a category that includes "minimalist" entries from Nike, Saucony and Brooks. None are as extreme as FiveFingers. Why the increase? Retailers selling the shoes credit the book "Born to Run: A Hidden Tribe, Superathletes, and the Greatest Race the World Has Never Seen" by , as well as the improved products and generally positive response from those who have tried it. If you find a pair, you're lucky. "We can't keep them in stock," said , owner of Fleet Feet on Wolf Road. "We tell people our order date and they show up that day." Their lack of availability lies in the way they are made, said , a manager at Luke's in Houston. Because they are glued, rather than sewed, there are many miscues in the manufacturing process that are hard to remedy. "They produce four, and three are shippable," he said. The supply problem might be a good thing, some medical experts say. Many doctors are worried it's a fad and not something that will ultimately achieve its aims. In the long term, it might cause more harm than good. "It's an interesting idea," said from Capital Region Foot Care in Albany. "On the surface, minimal running has some merit, for some people those with perfect feet. But nobody really has perfect feet." Ginsberg, a 20 time marathoner, said even good feet have imperfections that could lead to stress without support found in typical running shoes. It's proven by studies that cushioning and absorption, in varying degrees, improves running, while there is no science backing up barefoot, or minimalist running. "I'm open, but skeptical," he said. "We need more time." Luke's McClung says customers tell him: "We've been told over and over to add this and that and maybe some of us don't need all the cushioning and support. They feel good running." But like McClung, Fleet Feet's Woodruff says they aren't a panacea. Most agree it's not for everyone, and those who try them should gradually increase their use, like Delaney, who not only slowly added them to his routine, but still uses shoes with limited cushioning for some training and races. Although there have been no conclusive studies, doctors say it's probably best with a foot that is balanced and not too flat. "You won't improve your speed," Delaney says. "But they activate muscles that do better when you put the running shoes back on. I think they're useful, but not everything."
Real Cheap Air Jordan 11 Low IE Black Varsity Red,Air Jordan 6 Olympic Gold Medal Pack Nike Inc. (NKE) has been the focus of some brisk options trading this afternoon. Looking in on the calls, we find that the July 90 call has seen more than 8,800 contracts change hands on open interest of fewer than 6,800 contracts. Meanwhile, the July 92.50 call has traded more than 4,600 contracts on open interest of approximately 1,074 contracts. Of course, calls aren't the only ones seeing some action today. The July 85 put has traded nearly 7,200 contracts on open interest of 3,116 contracts. The July 87.50 put has also been active, with more than 6,400 contracts trading on open interest of 113 contracts. All in all, it's pretty safe to say that options players have been rushing to open new positions on Nike following the stock's sudden burst of energy. The stock is up more than 8%, jumping above the $88 mark. The security gapped higher, popping above former resistance at the $86 level. However, my main concern is that the stock is still facing some staunch resistance at the $90 level an area that halted the security's rally attempts in December and March. In fact, the stock has been locked in a sideways pattern since peaking in December 2010. The shares of Nike are on the move today following news that the company's fiscal fourth quarter revenues jumped 14% to $5.8 billion. Meanwhile, diluted earnings came in $1.24 per share, up 17% from the same period a year ago. For its fiscal 2011, revenues came in at nearly $21 billion and diluted earnings climbed 14% to $4.39. Wall Street is quite smitten with the shares of the athletic apparel company. According to Zacks, the stock has earned 12 Strong Buy ratings and 4 Holds, with no Sell ratings. This bullish configuration leaves little room for potential upgrades following the firm's positive news. While the stock is enjoying a nice run higher today, I don't think the security is going to have the energy to push through resistance at the $90 level and will continue to sidle along under this round number level. Options players may want to consider selling the July 90 call, which is currently quoted at $1.05, to take advantage of a stall in the stock's uptrend. For a somewhat more conservative play, traders could initiate a credit spread by selling the July 90 call and buying the July 92.50 call as protection.

Three hours in and they're finally starting to crack. I loosened the tie around my neck, as I tried one last time to convince them. "Sir, you don't understand," I continued, "It's called an investment." "I know damn well what it is," said General Rogers, "It's lunacy!" "No sir, it's lunarcy," I corrected him, "And that's the beauty of it. It's not like we haven't been there before. I've read the files. I know it's not rock. The rumors are true." I heard muttering between the six others at the table. This was the moment to drive my point home. "Gentlemen," I began, "There's now ten billion people on this planet. That's less than half a cow per person, and our population growth shows no signs of stopping. The people have to get fed somehow." "He's right you know," said Commander Summers, "You've seen what people will do for a slice. It's madness." General Rogers roared, "That's not the point! What does he " Colonel Biggs cleared his throat. Skinny guy, I thought, maybe it's some sort of ironic codename. "What you're suggesting, Mr. Curd, is that we spend the next six years developing a system of rockets to haul large fragments of the moon back to Earth, and split it all amongst ten billion people?" "Tell me Colonel," I retorted, "When's the last time you had a grilled cheese sandwich?" A collective sigh rang through the room, as they all remembered a thing of the past. "I don't plan on splitting rock amongst people my friends, I plan on slicing cheese. Aged five billion years in the vacuum of space, it can only get better from here."
