Maybe you or I haven't landed a 900 lately.  Not many have.  Tony Hawk first performed the historic skateboarding trick 17 years ago at the 1999 X Games.  And just for kicks and giggles (I guess), did it again this week.  Said Hawk, "I'm still going.  I'll keep on going until the wheels fall off."     story

Goodyear's latest and greatest blimp'mobile is complete and ready to settle in Carson, California soon.  "The 246-foot-long ship, named Wingfoot Two, is the second in a fleet of three flashy airships the company is slowly phasing in to replace its 1920s-designed iconic branded blimps."   It is faster, longer, and can move dextrously, like a helicopter can.  One thing that remains the same?  --What goes up, must come down.       news

In May, Maria Korcsmaros went for a 2-hour swim at Corona del Mar State Beach, Californa, to train for an upcoming Iron Man and was attacked by a shark.  DNA samples suggest it was a 9-foot teen shark.   The bite broke two ribs, punctured a lung and liver, fractured her pelvis, and took a good part of her tricep.   Says Korcsmaros, "It’s made me stronger.  When you experience something like this and make it through, you have a certain amount of respect.”       story
