      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

ya know, I love the Twins. I really do. I listen to almost every game on radio. But their resistance to do anything to really help the club is really frustrating and tries my patience. I was thinking about attending a game here shortly, but if they fail to make any moves, I may just stay home.

you might as well save your money and stay home.

Just like all the other years the Twins will sit on their hands and do nothing and yes it does get frustrating that they do that every year.

I agree, You can't just make a trade to make a trade. You don't always hear what the other team was asking for. The Twins usually make the moves that help not hurt a team. Granted they can botch it up also, but sometimes losing good prospects to "Rent" a player can backfire in a heartbeat.

Getting a big time player can backfire. Remember the Hersel Walker trade? Everyone says the Vikes have never won a SuperBowl, but actually, they have won 2. Problem is, they won them for Dallas !

sometimes the best moves are the ones you don't make

I agree for the most part and hardly ever 2nd guess our overall method which IMO is the best in baseball period but I do understand the frustration from some of our fans.

I shall will remain neutral on this on!. grin

Go Twins!

You know they have been shopping around, it is such that the asking price in return for a good player is one of the guys that is currently producing for us. I believe they would have made a move already if there was a worthy deal to be done. I also believe it is time to get Liriano up here to test him again in the big leagues. I just do not trust Livan out there, every pitch he throws I cringe. Just because they haven't made a move will not keep me from going to the dome to watch them, which is where I will be tonight. I think I will make a generic homer hanky, since I don't have any of the real ones from years past. I almost forgot, how could you stay away from the dome with all those babes at the game? And being married is not an excuse because looking isn't against the rules! smile GO TWINS!

I have a really bad memory, but the only 2 moves I can remember that helped at this time of the year were obtaining Shannon Stewart and in '87 getting Don Baylor.

There have been many ones that did not work, ie Rick Reed. Bret Boone...and others.

Go Twins. Yes it is frustrating, but look at Seattle. Their season is over.

Glad to see this guy get out of the National League!

He strikes out a lot but clubs his fair share of homers too!

Go Cubs!

The Reds get pitcher Nick Masset and minor league infielder Danny Richar and the Reds will pay the remainder of Griffey's $12 million salary for this season.

The lack of activity on the Twins part can be frustrating, but they are not the quick change kind of team. Solid basics and building from within are why they are the model organization that the middle and low budget teams try to emulate. They look hard at the intangibles like how a player will affect team chemistry. How many deadline trades really push a team over the edge? Far fewer than the trades that actually happen and they tend to be temprary solutions. This is a team of our future. The fact that they are conending this year is gravy. Why screw up the next three or four years to take a chance on this year? Even if they pull off atrade that gets them the division, there are too many steps to get the big trophy. And if you go to the games just to look at the babes,...sit next to me so you can point them out in case I miss one.

Wonder if you'd get circled if your sign said, "Circle me Bert, my wife's letting me check out the babes. Oh...and, go Twins."

Well, he agreed to the trade and will joint the team on friday. If he would have showed up today, I may have had to drive down and buy a walk up ticket.

Is he a "rental player", or does he have some time left on his contract? It would be nice to say I saw him play before he retires. Looks like he is going to play right for the pale hose, should be fun to watch.

Look at the White Sox's bullpen tonight,, they could have used some more pitching rather than a KG that's likely to only last one or maybe two more years, and doesn't play CF like Anderson does. KG does bring some more pop at the plate,, but the TWins only face the Sox 3 more times,,, at the dome.

If the Twins bring an effective Liriano up and do something with Livian,, I think the Twins hold a slight advantage over the White Sox.

I don't think this move is going to help them at all. Griffey was a great centerfielder, but he's 38. I think he'd be a great dh, but they have a great one already with Thome. If you add him to the line-up, then Konnerko, Thome, or Swisher will have to sit.

I think they have a lot of other weaknesses that could have been addressed.

Cicada, that might actually work, except i dont get hitched until late september. I could use a variation of your suggestion at the next game laugh Anyone that wasn't at the game last night missed a great one. Of course we couldn't score until the 5th (just like I told my buddies before the game). Still, that game was one of the best I have ever been to. Got to heckle some Chicago fans too. Gardy turned that game around, he got everyone on their feet and myself and many others have a sore throat today grin Hopefully his wife wasnt to angry.

    • Do I need to answer to you? Absolutely not, especially when you are going to try to put together some physics logic behind why treadmills are good, completely neglecting to describe how muscles function with a protagonist and antagonist relationship.  Meaning when your quads are suppose to relax and your hamstrings are suppose to engage and vice versa.  When that doesn't happen over and over again due to the belt doing the hamstrings work, then you are developing an inefficient movement pattern (compensation) and you can expect pain, arthritis, injury, replacement, etc. (Familiar, I know the arthritis bit is) You are training yourself not to work like you were created to work.  Although for you Del, I completely understand if you think you are smarter then how we as a species got to be who we are today.  Or at least you can find something to copy and paste from somebody else whom feels the way you do, who also got dooped into buying a treadmill or pays a monthly fee to walk on a treadmill.  If you want to start judging me, I can judge you Del and this can be very fun for me but then all the snowflakes on here would melt because I brought some heat.  Your old timer buddies would come and save you, delete half my postings that expose you know absolutely nothing about this topic, you all can cry about how I am so mean and hate filled, and then not troll me for a few months until you are updated with one of my postings and then crawl right back into an argument where I make you look stupid all over.  Up to you buddy.   Dave, I got 32 seconds into that video, couldnt stand the guy and stopped it.
    • I'm no expert on this stuff but I'm guessing this is what Dr. Juice is alluding to in his own condescending way.....    
    • I am still waiting for something exciting on the Wild front...nothing yet that is for sure...just hoping the same old guys have some gas left in the tank at the end of the year and the "young kids" have finally graduated and can bring it to another level...it's all about the playoffs...getting in is easy...actually making any sort of run is the is where the rubber meets the road. Cullen making a "family" decision vs a "hockey" decision was lucky for Chuck that is for sure and Cullen is not going to bring us to another level...but will be an OK role player and 3rd or 4th liner..probably will fill the jersey of a young guy we have unfortunately..but it is what it is.
    • Which questions?  The one about your education?   Must have been a long time ago since I don't recall it.  I do remember you being a big big huge fan of Chiropractic.   Perhaps you could refresh my memory, it shouldn't take long to post your CV   And I guess you must have missed physics class as well, since in physics calculations of forces are the same no matter the frame of reference, yet you continue to suggest there is a difference between a frame referenced to a person's center of mass, and one referenced to the earth.   I did see this article from a newspaper.... The author must have at least as much qualification as you do http://healthyliving.azcentral.com/muscles-worked-out-using-treadmill-7727.html What Muscles Are Worked Out When Using a Treadmill? The treadmill is a versatile exercise machine that lets users walk, jog and run on flat or uphill surfaces. In addition to providing an effective cardiovascular workout, treadmills also help strengthen the muscles of the legs and butt. Depending on the incline, you can work the front or the rear of your legs more intensely; however, every treadmill workout strengthens both.   The Quadriceps People who walk and jog on the treadmill with regularity gain endurance and strength in the quadriceps muscles. The quadriceps are named for the four large muscles on the front of the thighs; they are the rectus femoris, vastus lateralis, vastus medialis and vastus intermedius. These muscles help the body jump and squat in addition to walking and running. As a result, treadmill exercise applies to more than just working out; it also improves the ease with which you go about activities of daily living. The Hamstrings Like the quadriceps, "hamstrings" is also a collective name for a muscle group. The hamstrings, comprising the biceps femoris, the semitendinosus and the semimembranosus, lie between the buttocks and the back of the knee on the rear thigh. The muscles of the hamstrings are used for power walking and running in addition to squatting and jumping, and -- in general -- the more you exercise on the treadmill, the greater your hamstrings' endurance gains will become. However, according to the University of Wisconsin, roughly a quarter of collegiate athletes who sprint injure their hamstrings. As a result, warm up on the treadmill slowly, and increase running speeds gradually. The Calves The calf muscles of the rear lower leg, comprising the gastrocnemius and the soleus, also work hard during treadmill exercise. According to a study from the Laboratory of Medical Physics in The Netherlands, most of the work performed by the calf muscles occurs as you push off from your toes while walking, running and jumping. You can increase the workload on your calves -- and your hamstrings -- by increasing the incline on the treadmill. The Glutes The glutes make up the muscles of the rear end and, like the leg muscles, help you walk, jump and run. "Fitness" magazine reports that people who set their treadmills to a steep incline increase the workload on their glutes significantly, which increases strength, improves endurance and burns fat and calories. Although the treadmill helps you gain leg strength, the machine is primarily known for its cardiovascular health benefits. As a result, if you exercise regularly on a treadmill you can expect health gains on the inside of your body as well as the outside.    
    • Talk about humor, the original post was from April 2013.    I'm sure the OP has already bought his treadmill, used it as a clothes hanger and re-sold it on C-r-a-i-g-s-l-i-s-t. 
    • Deer numbers on PUBLIC land in NW WI are very low.  Private land seems to be the opposite.  I hunt a number of public areas in Polk County for the last ~10 years or so.   You have to work pretty hard to shoot a deer there.  MFL land is also heavily hunted, but there are lots of opportunities.   Once you learn an area you might do alright, but it is tough if you are new to the region.   Don't expect to get permission to hunt on any farms, in my experience they are all tied up for friends/family.
    • Thanks for the humor. 
    • Thanks for the humor.
    • boys........boys.......................boys.................do you to need a time out? a group hug??????????
    • I'll just laugh when you fall because you have a terribly inefficient movement pattern created by a treadmill.  I don't need any sort of medical background to know that you move on the ground (earth) as you pull yourself forward and push yourself away while on a tread mill your just moving without purpose.  Your body will learn from repetition and when you increase the intensity, your body will develop those patterns faster.   Thank you for the attempted digs, I have addressed every one of those questions in the past numerous times.  Its not my fault you cant remember Dick
