Figure skating is notoriously rife with drama and intrigue. Since its introduction to the Winter Olympics in 1924, figure skating has been one of the most popular, yet controversial competitions.
For the first time in the 106 years since the sport was introduced, figure skating will be a team event at the Sochi Games. In addition to their individual events, athletes from 10 countries will compete against each other as a squad, combining their efforts for a shot at a group medal in addition to individual crowns.
As Olympic events go, this one has the intrigue and secrecy of a Cold War spy novel. Countries have been guarding their playbooks like their national secrets for good reason.
Most recently Amanda won Battle of the Blades with retired NHLer and skating partner Scott Thornton.Amanda joins us to chat about her path to the Olympics and what it means to compete and sacrifice to get to the the top level of amateur sport in the world of figure skating.

Everyone loves figure skating!
“Every winter, millions of Canadians take to the ice, indoors and outdoors, in search of fun and fitness," says Skate Canada, the governing body for the national sport.
In our country, you'll see many figure skating events on television throughout the year - Skate Canada, Canadian championships, world championships, and more. Canadians Tessa Virtue and Scott Moir stole the limelight at the Vancouver Winter Olympics in 2010 and Canada’s strength as a figure skating nation is a proven result of not only this type of exceptional talent.
A group of skaters and coaches who have been willing to take risks and be part of the continuous re-definition of the sport continue to extend our expectation of what is possible.
Join the conversation as we pull back the curtain on The Inside Edge of Figure Skating with Elvis Stojko and PJ Kwong, CBC Figure Skating Correspondent and author of “Taking The Ice”.
• Is the figure skating world in Canada thriving?
• Will be able to maintain our highest level of world class competitors?
• Internal rivalry, between skaters, has gained bad press for the sport.
• Has controversial judging tainted competition?
• Will the respect for the sport ever return?

After five national championships in figure skating, Tai Babilonia and her partner Randy Gardner were on top of the world. Headed into the 1980 Olympics, they were the prohibitive favorites to win the gold for pairs skating. Then their world fell apart when Randy endured an injury that crushed their dreams.
“In the matter of three minutes,” she says, “our entire lives changed. Right in front of the world. But it didn’t happen the way it was expected to happen.”
Despite a hugely successful professional career, Tai soon found herself on thin ice, swirling and sinking in the deepest throes of alcoholism. “I crashed and burned. I’m not proud of those days. I tried to take my life.”
Tai’s personal woes became tabloid fodder and the subject of a TV movie. “I threw myself into therapy and began to put the pieces of my life together.” Today on BOLD, find out how this remarkable woman finally made her way back to the top.

The Don S. McClure Show Black History Awards Day Celebration 1998 - 2009 Black History Awards Day,
A concept given birth by admiration and respect. A concept that was inspired by those who came before me and left an indelible mark upon my mind. The very idea started after reading a few quotes by Carter G. Woodson and others like him.
Charles Chestnut, considered to be the first African American published fictional writer.One of the best known and most widely read of early African American writers, Charles W. Chesnutt published more than fifty short stories, six novels, two plays, a biography of Frederick Douglass, and countless essays, poems, letters, journals, and speeches. Though he had light skin and was of mixed race, Chesnutt self-identified as a black man, and his writing was often boldly political, openly addressing problems of racial identity and injustice in the late 19th century. and Arturo Alfonso Schomburg (January 24, 1874 – June 8, 1938), was a Puerto Rican historian, writer, and activist in the United States who researched and raised awareness of the great contributions that Afro-Latin Americans and Afro-Americans have made to society. He was an important intellectual figure in the Harlem Renaissance.
Their work took me on a journey to create something special and something that would offer just as much honor and respect for our achievements. Their efforts guided me to produce.

Have you recently had friends, co-workers, or strangers suddenly get pissed off at you for what seemed like no reason at all? Maybe you told yourself that they were overreacting or being too sensitive, or that they had no right to be angry when you clearly didn't mean to do whatever you did (and in fact aren't even sure what it was). If you're a socially inept type like me, I bet you've had this happen within the last month.
or those of us who aren't great with people, we figure that silence is always the safest bet. If you're an introvert, you spend so much of your time wishing that other people would just shut the hell up that you figure you're doing everyone a favor. So, you run into a co-worker at the mall and think it's better to pass by in silence than do an awkward stop-and-chat that you'd probably screw up anyway.
Then, after you pass by this person, you hear them in the aisle behind you mutter, "Asshole."
So What's the Problem?
This is literally the most frequent social mistake I see in my day to day. You didn't 're confused because, well, who would ever assume that silence is an insult?
If you're confused, think of it this way: respond to the party invitation. You didn't reply to their funny text with a smiley. You didn't wish them a happy birthday. Now they're bitter and youIf you apply for a job, which is worse -- a rejection letter, or no reply at all? The former is bad, but the latter is dismissive, and that's a thousand times worse. (Note: By far the angriest reaction I get to hate mail is when I don't reply at all.) That's how some people take your failure to speak to them -- like you didn't even open their resume before tossing it in the trash.
