2008 Olympic Athletic Gear

Check out what the athletes from Teams USA and Canada are wearing to compete in the 2008 Beijing Olympics!

US Olympic Gear

Team USA. How cool is Nike? The official designers for US Olympians have made high tech track suits that shave fractions off races, breaking up drag from 12 to 19 percent! Meanwhile, athletes competing in the swimming events will be wearing Speedo's revolutionary LZR Racer that was developed with the help of NASA. Since its launch in February 2008, 44 world records have been broken by swimmers wearing the LZR Racer! Featuring the red, white and blue of the American flag, Team USA will be looking good even while sweatin' up a storm. Check out the American Olympic gear at www.usolympicshop.com,

Canada's Olympic Gear

Team Canada. Team Canada is outfitted in the first eco-friendly Olympic collection designed by HBC. Made of fabrics like bamboo, cacona and organic-blended cotton, it has moisture wicking properties that help keep the athletes cool in the Beijing heat. Since these fabrics were hard to find in Canada, they were sourced mainly in China, which is why they were made in China (much to critic's dismay). Made up of track suits, hoodies, T-shirts, shorts and headbands, the 2008 line keeps the Canadian spirit with maple leaves and red and white colors, but also pays tribute to China with an Oriental feel to the design. Unfortunately, the tapestry print is so busy and distracting that it borders on ugly. Plus, it looks more like a pajama set than a track suit. Anyone else think they should bring back Roots?

Two years ago my parents broke up. I was never really the same after that point. My mother she began to just not care about anything. She would go out clubbing every Friday and would yell at me for my attitude towards it. Why would I be okay with her doing that??? I didn't really realise it but I began feeling kind of depressed. Of course we didn't fight all the time but when we did I would always end up crying alone in my room. And it would be really painful. One time I cried every night for a week because of her. A week ago, I felt really sick at school so I went to the sick bay but my Mum refused to believe I was sick. She thought I was lying and being over dramatic as usual. I felt really horrible after that, that the teacher sent me to the guidance councellor and almost immediately I burst into tears. I didn't even know why I did but the councellor did a little test on me and came to the conclusion I was slightly depressed and had anxiety. It wasn't really surprising but hearing it out loud just felt really weird. Even after knowing that fact my mother doesn't really act any different. She's not a bad person I swear but she can just be really horrible at times. Anyways, that's technically whats been happening in my life lol. Nothing really interesting

theres this guy that i really REALLY like, im not sure if he likes me back. i put my mobile # on a piece of paper and slipped it in his locker, he hasn't texted or called me yet. Today at lunch i asked his friend to ask if he likes anyone but his friend keeps lying to me and won't tell me if he said anything. The guy and I were best friends in 5th grade but now that we're in different classes we don't talk much anymore. My friends said that i have a chance with him and that we have a lot in common, but im pretty sure he likes this other girl but im also pretty sure he likes me. I want to make a move but i don't wanna end our friendship i don't know what to do.

It's good to have both to talk too about things. But, what's the point of being with someone if you can't trust them enough to even tell them things?
