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?

Let's have a Lazy Saturday morning together. My name is June and I'm Vice President of the Advanced Ghost Hunters of Seattle Tacoma (www.AGHOST.org) and help with Event planning at Spooked in Seattle Ghost Tours. I thought this would be a very laid back show, talk a bit about some of my past cases, play some EVPs, talk about things coming up at Spooked in Seattle and then play an old time Mystery or Scary Radio show from back in the day when there were no TV or Computers. What a fun, spooky way to start your Saturday morning (or on the East Coast, your afternoon).
We are going to listen to an episode of the Ellery Queen Mysteries, Dead Man's Cavern. It will even give you a chance to figure out who the killer was.
Join me for a rambling half hour of live Radio from Rocks & Things. Unless the Universe has other plans I am going to talk about Dogs, thearchetypal hero and what is happening as I understand it for the Solstice.
However, that can change if someone with an interesting story to tell wanders into the store. We will just go with the flow of the Universe.
If we do get to talk about what I have planned we are going to look at the archetypal Heroes Journey, the archetypes that support that journey and the Ultimate Result of the Heroes Journey.
If time allows I would also like to talk the Solstice from a couple of different perspectives:
Join me live if I can figure out the computer thing or come on into the store for a holiday hootinanny.
There are many different beliefs out there concerning the existence of God. Is God real or is he just a figment of our imaginations? Some believe he created the universe and everything in it. Others do not believe a God at all. On my last and final show, I will explain my take on this mysterious figure.
I will give you a clear understanding of his nature, his functions, and how it related to the tripartite nature of mankind. Join me for my next show.

Topic: “Welcome to the New World: Cuba!”
Welcome back to the New World. Tonight it’s a new world, with Cuba! Why did the President reestablish diplomatic relations with the communist Cuban government? Isn’t torture still bad? We’ll try to figure out why. The mind of a narcissist has a singular goal. If you got something you want to talk about call-in.
Tune-in, listen and learn, or be a putz.
Curiously enough, we find that the Bible is not a book that everyone can readily understand. Many find it puzzling, difficult to figure out. How, then, can we come to understand it? The first set of keys to comprehension can be grouped under the umbrella of the right approach we must have at the outset of our reading and study. We must come to the Bible with the right attitude and perspective—looking with profound respect and reverence to the divine Author behind its pages, willing to believe and follow what He says.

Ask yourself these questions to create a workout tailored to your needs and preferences.
Fitness programs abound, from yoga and Pilates to step aerobics and strength training — either at home or in a gym. So which type of fitness program is right for you? Ask yourself these questions to figure it out.
What is your current fitness level?
You probably have some idea of how fit you are. But assessing and recording baseline fitness scores can help you set your fitness goals and measure your progress. To assess your aerobic and muscular fitness, flexibility, and body composition, consider recording:
Your pulse rate before and immediately after walking 1 mile (1.6 kilometers)
How long it takes to walk 1 mile
How many pushups you can do at a time
How far you can reach forward while seated on the floor with your legs in front of you
Your waist circumference at the level of your hipbones
Your body mass index
Do you have any health issues?
If you are age 50 or older, haven't exercised for some time, or have chronic medical conditions, such as diabetes or heart disease, it's a good idea to to consult your doctor before beginning an exercise program.
It's also good to keep in mind that as you age, impaired balance, decreased elasticity of tendons and other factors can limit your exercise capacity. Injuries also are more frequent, and recovery takes longer. But that doesn't mean you shouldn't exercise or that you won't benefit from it. Just be sure to seek input from your doctor or an exercise therapist about how to create a program that's appropriate for you.
