Kiwi transgender weightlifter Laurel Hubbard s win causes stir among female Aussie competitors. Yahoo and Agencies A Kiwi weightlifter has made history as the first transgender athlete to represent New Zealand and come away with a win, however the victory has been slammed by other competitors. Laurel Hubbard, 39, won the women's over 90kg division at the Australian International competition in Melbourne on Sunday, but the win has caused a stir with some believing she had an unfair advantage. Her combined total of 268kg was nearly 20kg better than Samoan runner-up Iuniarra Sipaia, with another 20kg back to the next lifter in the field.

The performance puts Hubbard in line for selection at the 2017 Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast. While her eligibility passed the International Olympic Committee's criteria, Hubbard's win was met with criticism from Australian competitors who believe a transgender athlete in the female weightlifting category was not an equal playing field. She transitioned in her mid-30s and recent improvements have lifted her to a lofty women's ranking. | Products. Free Business Plans.

At age 6, Lizzie Marie Likness yearned to take horseback riding lessons.

She wanted them so badly that she offered to help foot part of the bill.

''Lizzie Marie Cuisine is unique because I teach kids how to have fun cooking healthy meals and how to live healthy,'' said Likness.

While viral distribution can help you reach people your fans are directly connected to, search engine optimization exposes your Facebook Page to Facebook’s entire userbase.

In fact, Facebook itself has taken major steps to improve its own SEO during recent weeks and months, creating opportunities for Page owners to benefit directly while creating value for Facebook at the same time. 1. 2. 3. 4.

9 Lists To Keep Updated, and Keep Handy. I bought a Moleskine notebook a long time ago, and for a while it got zero use. My productivity system is totally digital and Web-based, as is my personal journal. I bought the Moleskine because it looked awesome, and because so many other people found it useful. The Moleskine, though, made its way into my pocket or backpack all the time, because of one simple use I found for it: a list manager.

Not a list of things to do, or people to call – different lists. The Moleskine is my perfect list-manager, and that’s all I use it for. That said, I’ve also discovered how useful it is to keep a small number of lists both updated and handy at all times, for a whole variety of uses. “Things I Want” Every year, people I know ask me what I want for my birthday, or for Christmas, or just because they love giving me gifts (that last would would be nice, huh?). If I get it, or don’t want it anymore, it goes away.

“Gift Ideas” This one’s on the opposite side of gift-giving. “Got a Minute?” BHAGs Bucket List. Behance Network :: Gallery. Welcome. SmarterComics turns business books into comics - Comics that make you smarter - Available as printed books or eBooks.
