Bondo Doesn't Make All-Star Game

Boston Red Sox rookie lefthander Hideki Okajima and San Diego Padres righthander Chris Young were the final two players named to the 2007 All-Star Game on Thursday.

Okajima and Young were named by Major League Baseball's online voting, which officially ended at 6 p.m. EDT.

That means that JEremy Bonderman is left out. The last Tiger that probably should ahve made it. The guy didn't even have a loss this year until June, but I guess that wasn't good enough.

Institutions such as Capella University offer many distance learning programs for those of use that just don't have the time to go to class in the traditional sense. We are all very busy these days and working online is the easiest way.

Sara Orem, PhD, an adjunct faculty member at Capella University has just recently co-authored a new book titled Appreciative Coaching: A Positive Process for Change.

Rather than focusing on individuals in limited or problem-oriented ways, Appreciative Coaching guides the reader through four stages – Discovery, Dream, Design and Destiny – that inspire them to an appreciative and empowering view of themselves and their future,” Orem says. “What we have presented is really a new application of appreciative inquiry.
