We thank both the president and the public for their tremendous support."
Steph was out to get his teammates going early, especially his fellow Splash Brother. The Warriors' first five made shots all were assisted by Curry. He finished with 10 assists, good for his third double-double this season and second game dishing 10 or more assists.
"They can be very useful," Klay continued when talking about the Warriors' team meeting. "We thought that this morning was an incredible type of growth for us and the whole team. Some early-season adversity is right in front of us and what's most important is how we respond.
Warrior-Scholar Project fellows are student veteran alumni of WSP who are employed during the summer to help execute summer academic boot camp programming. Fellows are primarily responsible for teaching sessions on being a successful college student; leading discussion groups on readings; mentoring participants throughout the program; and coordinating with WSP staff, campus faculty, and campus administrative staff. Ultimately, fellows ensure that WSP programs are executed according to established standards and that students are supported throughout the program.
The samurais dedicated themselves to perfection in all aspectsof their existence. Attaining perfection was considered anexpectation prior to death. The ancient samurai warriors expendedtheir efforts in daily training until they mastered a new task.After samurais acquired a skill through countless hours of work, itwas consistently polished. From eating rice to the art of shootinga bow and arrow, the journey toward perfection was not an event butrather a way of life.
I had the special privilege of researching this balance duringmy stay in the samurai village. I came across and was fascinated byhistorical accounts written by highly respected leaders. Theseleaders instructed their fellow warriors to "unstring" theirlongbows while they were not training.
The purpose of this command was to preserve the spring andeffectiveness of the bow. If the samurai warriors did not unstringtheir bows both literally and figuratively, they risked losing thephysical and mental stamina to reach their goal.
During my second semester, I made it my personal mission toemulate the balanced lifestyle of a samurai warrior. I stilldedicated my day to learning and mastering medical scienceconcepts. Contrary to my first semester, however, I forced myselfto occasionally "unstring my bow."
The samurai warriors' constant pursuit of perfection in theircraft and lifestyle has inspired me to become an improved medicalstudent. In many ways, Japan is still at the forefront of mythoughts. It has been an honor to walk beside the samurai warriorin my journey toward medical professional perfection.

The central characteristic of the evolution of the combat soldier in recent years is an increasingly sophisticated array of sensing, communications, and related electronics for use in battlefield situations. The most critical factor for maintaining this evolution will be the development of power supply systems capable of operating those electronics effectively for missions up to 72 hours long. To address the challenge, it is important that new approaches be sought on how to integrate and power these electronics. To assist in addressing this problem, the Army requested the National Research Council to review the state of the art and to recommend technologies that will support the rapid development of effective power systems for the future warrior. This report presents the results of that review. It provides an assessment of various technology options for different power level requirements, power system design, and soldier energy sinks. The report also describes future design concepts, focusing on low-power systems. Recommendations for technology development and system design are presented.

By the time Crazy Horse was in his mid-teens he was already a full-fledged warrior. His bravery and prowess in battle were well-known by the Lakota people. He rode into battle with a single hawk feather in his hair, a rock behind his ear, and a lightning symbol on his face. The symbols and rituals that went into preparing for war provided the warrior power and protection.
In 1877, under a flag of truce, Crazy Horse went to Fort Robinson. Negotiations with U.S. Military leaders stationed at the Fort broke down. Eyewitnesses blame the breakdown in negotiations on the translator who incorrectly translated what Crazy Horse said. Crazy Horse was quickly escorted toward the jail. Once he realized that the commanding officers were planning on imprisoning him, he struggled and drew his knife. Little Big Man, friend and fellow warrior of Crazy Horse, tried to restrain him. As Crazy Horse continued to free himself, an infantry guard made a successful lunge with a bayonet and mortally wounded the great warrior. Crazy Horse died shortly after the mortal wound was inflicted. There are different accounts putting the date of his death around midnight September 5, 1877. 350c69d7ab
