Thoughts on the Giro, thus far

So, the Giro is well over a week old, and I'm just not getting around to having something to say about it...
1. Alessandro Petacchi - What has happened?!? He finally won a stage Monday, but this Giro has been a struggle so far. In his defence, his team did take themselves out on one stage, and there haven't been that many sprints, but still...
2. Paolo Bettini - I saw the move to the left that forced Baden Cooke into a somersault against the barriers, and I'd say the race officials were correct in relegating Bettini for an illegal line change. I've always liked Bettini, but that was quite a move, and he didn't make many friends with his denials and temper tantrum afterward...
3. Danilo Di Luca - What can one say? He's been amazing, and his struggle to stay in contact and keep the pink jersey today was almost as good as Thomas Voekler's last year in the Tour
4. Robbie McEwen - As much as I'd rather have Petacchi winning all the time, I like McEwen, because he's always brash and has great quotes, whether he wins or loses. Then again, that's true of pretty much all the Australians, so I like 'em all.
5. Dave Zabriski - Quite a time trial on Sunday. 'Nuff said.
6. Ivan Basso - Also quite a time trial on Sunday. I'd say he's spent a lot of time working on that this winter, and Lance should be afraid. Especially after today's mountain stage (see below).

So, with the first mountain stage on today, I sucked it up and purchased the OLN streaming video package. I was overjoyed (literally jumping around my apartment, albeit half-asleep, at 6:30am) when I got it going, along with the free streaming audio from Eurosport, and discovered that it's pretty much as good as watching it on TV!!! The only drawbacks are no Phil and Paul, and a slightly blurry picture, but that's nothing compared to being able to watch all the drama unfold! I had it full screen on my laptop and I moved it around as necessary whilst getting ready for work (ah, wireless internet). Today's stage was pretty exciting, with Basso and Salvodelli (and Simoni, in fairness) pretty much decimating the field. I was really disappointed in this actually, because now the race is basically down to Basso and Salvodelli, and maybe Di Luca, but Cunego, Garzelli, Cioni, they're all out of the picture. It's bad when that happens, because it's more interesting when there are more challengers. It always goes like this though - at the beginning there are so many people who can win, and the day when all those options go away is kind of depressing. But, I have faith that Cunego will still do something spectacular this Giro. Or maybe he's waiting for the Tour?!?

Tomorrow seems to be a stage potentially for the sprinters. Fingers crossed. I'll be up early to watch...

genetically enhanced fast growing, hard-wood trees!

EGTY trading volume is beginning to surge with landslide Announcement.
The value of this Stock appears poised for growth! This one will not

Keep Reading!!!!


-Energy and Asset Technology, Inc. (EGTY) owns a global license to market
the genetically enhanced Global Cedar growth trees, with plans to
REVOLUTIONIZE the forest-timber industry.

These newly enhanced Global Cedar trees require only 9-12 years of growth before they can
be harvested for lumber, whereas worldwide growth time for lumber is 30-50 years.

Other than growing at an astonishing rate, the Global Cedar has a number of other benefits.
Its natural elements make it resistant to termites, and the lack of oils and sap found in the wood
make it resistant to forest fire, ensuring higher returns on investments.

the wood is very lightweight and strong, lighter than Poplar and over twice
as strong as Balsa, which makes it great for construction. It also has
the unique ability to regrow itself from the stump, minimizing the land and
time to replant and develop new root systems.

Based on current resources and agreements, EGTY projects revenues of $140 Million
with an approximate profit margin of 40% for each 9-year cycle. With anticipated
growth, EGTY is expected to challenge Deltic Timber Corp. during its initial 9-year cycle.

Deltic Timber Corp. currently trades at over $38.00 a share with about $153 Million in revenues.
As the reputation and demand for the Global Cedar tree continues to grow around the world
EGTY believes additional multi-million dollar agreements will be forthcoming. The Global Cedar nursery has produced
about 100,000 infant plants and is developing a production growth target of 250,000 infant plants per month.

Energy and Asset Technology is currently in negotiations with land and business owners in New Zealand,
Greece and Malaysia regarding the purchase of their popular and profitable fast growing infant tree plants.
Inquiries from the governments of Brazil and Ecuador are also being evaluated.
