The most amazing, moving commercial of the Olympics – Meet the Superhumans of the Paralympics

 

This multi-sport training montage reveals that the Paralympics aren’t just a wheelchair affair 다운로드. As Public Enemy’s “Harder Than You Think” blares in the background, we see Great Britain’s best: the visually impaired soccer team practicing with blindfolds (a way to ensure that those who see more than others don’t gain an unfair advantage), the fierce-looking four-foot tall champion swimmer Ellie Simmonds, amputee runners, and, yes, the wheelchair basketball team.*

Halfway through the clip, there’s a jarring cut to a bomb exploding in a war zone 다운로드. Then there’s a pregnant mother at the hospital, awaiting word of her unborn child’s condition. That’s followed by a road accident that sends a car flipping on the highway 다운로드. A second later, we’re back in the gym, where a legless man is doing pull-ups. Then we see a man—presumably the victim of that horrific car wreck—next to his crumpled vehicle 마인크래프트 정품 무료.

Who makes more, college professors or coaches?

I bet you’re thinking this is a no-brainer and the coaches win by far. Not so fast, the medical departments at colleges rake in money for patient care and consulting 엑스박스 게임 다운로드.

Here is a breakdown for the UC system in California which includes Berkeley, UCLA, and San Francisco with a combined 100+ Nobel Laureates:

2010 Pay

  1. Coach – $2.4 million – Jeff Tedford (Berekeley)
  2. Coach – $2.1 million – Ben Howland (UCLA)
  3. Prof 티칭 필링 다운로드. – $2.0 million – Ronald Busuttil (UCLA)
  4. Coach – $1.9 million – Mike Montgomery (Berkeley)
  5. Prof. – $1.8 million – Khalil Tabsh (UCLA)
  6. Prof ch340 드라이버 다운로드. – $1.5 million – Anthony Azakie (UCSF)
  7. Prof. – $1.5 million – Philip Leboit (UCSF)
  8. Prof. – $1.5 million – Timothy McCalmont (UCSF)
  9. Prof 다운로드. – $1.4 million – Richard Shemin  (UCLA)
  10. Coach – $1.2 million – Rick Neuheisel (UCLA)

The coaches hold four of the ten spots 도라에몽 극장판 달 탐사기 다운로드. The disparity in pay between the two groups isn’t all that great either. Average of the top 10 has the professors earning $1.6 million and the coaches earning $1.9 million 다운로드.

If you keep going, the next fifteen are all on the healthcare side with twelve professors and three health executives. Of the top 100 they take up 84 spots, with only fourteen non-healthcare salaries 아이작 애프터버스 세이브파일 다운로드.

#3 - Ronald Busuttil, Transplant Surgeon

It’s also worth noting that the next coaches on the list are Norm Chow (UCLA) at #95, and Joanne Boyle (Berkeley) at #119 fckeditor.

I have to admit the numbers are pretty shocking. The common understanding is that professors make little money, while doctors make good money. Combine the two and it’s a gold mine 시네마 4d 무료 다운로드.

One that doesn’t pull money from the schools themselves. Like the coaches they are largely paid with the money they pull in. In the world of college academics this is called an “auxiliary program” (thanks Norman), and the opposite is normally true zeromq. These programs (sports, healthcare) funnel money, prestige, and students to the schools.

A final note, these salaries are determined by combining each persons base pay with their incentives and bonuses. For the coaches this means winning, playoffs, and championships. For the health professors it means seeing patients and receiving awards for their research.

Take out this extra pay and not one in the top 10 earns above $317,000 in base pay. Many of those lower on the list have a set base pay of $500,000 and $800,000.

Interesting, to say the least, and I hope I informed your opinion of college salaries.
