In 1974, Burger wrote for a unanimous court in United States v. Nixon, which rejected Nixon’s invocation of executive privilege in the wake of the Watergate scandal. The ruling played a major role in Nixon’s resignation. Burger joined the majority in Roe v. Wade in holding that the right to privacy prohibited states from banning abortions. He later abandoned Roe v. Wade in Thornburgh v. American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists. His majority opinion in INS v. Chadha struck down the legislative veto.

Although Burger was a lifelong Republican, many of the landmark decisions issued during his tenure represented clear liberal victories. For example, In Swann v. Charlotte-Mecklenberg Board of Education (1971), the Court issued a unanimous ruling supporting busing as a pragmatic approach to reduce de facto racial segregation in schools. However, Burger’s conservatism can be seen in opinions such as his concurring opinion in Bowers v. Hardwick (1986), which upheld a Georgia law criminalizing sodomy.

His advice: Switch up your program often to get the best results. Reorder your exercises or structure a different progression. If you’ve been lifting heavy for weeks, mix in a “light” day with high reps. If you’ve been doing all cardio, start lifting. Make sure you keep adjusting.

A Twitter follower asked Phil Jackson to post a picture of his two New York Knicks championship rings. The former player and legendary coach did him 11 better and posted a picture of the 13 championship rings he won during his career.

“There must be more” he said to himself.

The moment began a spiritual journey which brought him to Zen meditation and the religious practices of several Native American tribes. He had grown up in a strict Christian background in which he had not found what he now needed.

Like Paris Hilton, Bill’s kids grew up as hotel heirs, their family name plastered on buildings. But they are the anti-Hiltons. Raised as Mormons, they were taught to be humble and work hard. As teenagers, they worked scrub jobs at the company as training in the Marriott way.

The Regal Beagle pub was the local neighborhood hangout where the roommates usually relaxed and had some mixed drinks or a beer and a sandwich with each other, met each other, and their dates. Its main entrance, near where the main bar was located, contained one of three main sets: the roommates’ apartment (#201), their landlord’s apartment and the The Regal Beagle. Itself, all which were set minutes from the beach in Santa Monica, CA.

And as the sitcom’s defenders were always quick to point out, for all their talk about sex, the characters usually slept alone.

I was born in Northwestern Pennsylvania and lived in a trailer park. I was raised by very conservative and religious (Wesleyan Methodist) parents. By some miracle I graduated college and moved to Florida. I have been a public school teacher since 1995. I have 7 years until I can retire. I was married in 1999 and divorced in 2001. I remarried in 2017 to Kate - 21 years my junior. Some of my life experiences as a 46-year-old, white American male, will come through in my writing, but the majority of this daily journey will be dedicated to improving myself, and hopefully you as well.
