Castlevania: Order of Ecclesia - Eligor (+medal)

Dancing With The Stars In High Definition by Suzanne McMahon

Whatever this season may bring, I was tired of the dancing, judges, and contestants. I just couldn't stand to watch Chloris Leachman. But then along came Gilles Marini, Lil Kim, Ty Murray, Melissa Rycroft, The Woz, Julianne's boyfriend, Chuck Wicks, Denise Richards, Shawn Johnson, and a few others that really didn't interest me.

Who did I find to be the most interesting? I couldn't wait to see the outstanding dancing of Frenchman Gilles Marini. I discovered Gilles when I saw Sex and the City where he stood out among a cast of talented actors and actresses. Just like in Sex and the City, he proved to be the best entertainment on Dancing with the Stars. Gilles raises the temperature on the dance floor. Judge Carrie Ann Inaba said what a lot of female views were thinking - Gilles wife Carole is very lucky.

Denise Richards was a big disappointment, lacking talent as well as personality. The Woz may be a computer genius and he definitely seemed like a great guy, but he just didn't have the moves on the dance floor. While Chuck Wicks put in 110% and stayed on the show week after week. I didn't really like Lil' Kim until I saw her dance so amazingly well. Derek Huff did wonders with his choreography and inspiration. They were a team that showed talent as well as chemistry. How stunning was it then that Lil' Kim was voted off ahead of several less talented dance partners.

The final four, as I write, are Melissa and Tony, Ty and Chelsie, Gilles and Cheryl, Shawn and Mark. Melissa came in shortly before the show when Jewel was injured. She showed immediately that she had ballet training. Ballet really paid off for Melissa. Twice she scored thirty out of thirty from the three judges. But perfect scores don't always mean you won't be voted off. Just like Sabrina Bryan. She received a perfect score in another season and was eliminated early. The celeb dancer who has shown real progress is World Champion rodeo cowboy Ty Murry. His background as a rodeo star did little to prepare him, but more than likely gives him a wide and different fan base for voters. Shawn Johnson's dancing was just as enchanting as her gold medal winning run at the 2008 Beijing Olympics. Finally, Gilles Marini simply couldn't do a routine that didn't blow me away. He is definitely my favorite.

Who will win? Another celebrity contestant and their partner gets sent off on the next show. After that the three last dance teams have a final dance-off. You can guarantee where I'll be that night!

Getting your Dancing with the Stars fix in high definition is the greatest way to do it I've found. Recently my son convinced me to ditch my regular TV and make the jump to an HDTV. Oh Man! You may be thinking what I used to think - how can it make that much of a difference in picture and sound quality? Well, I'm here to tell you it really does. Plus, Comcast Cable is outstanding! I just got HD cable for my new HDTV and the rate was very low for adding this new service. While I was at it I added Comcast High Speed Internet and Comcast Digital Voice for a super low triple play bundle rate. My download speeds and television picture are by far the fastest and clearest I have ever experienced with my new broadband service and HD Comcast Cable. As a bonus, they offer digital phone service at flat rate pricing. The phone is very clear and I can call friends and family around the US and never have to pay long distance charges. If you are moving to an area that is covered by Comcast, or it is your local cable provider, I recommend calling them sooner rather than later to order their great services. And if you search on the web you can probably some sites that offer the latest Comcast Cable promotions and savings. The Triple Play Bundle is the best way to go so make sure you consider it. All three digital services for a big discount from Comcast.

S.McMahon covers the latest Comcast Cable TV Offers and Specials so consumers could find the very best savings available. If you're considering Comcast Cable Digital HD Television make sure you check out Suzanne's reviews.

Frequently Asked Questions...

Why is NBC changing the Olympic Medal Count order?

For all history the medal count order has always been in that the country with the most gold medals, after all the real winner is only the gold medalist.

Now here comes the real mystery, since the 2004 Olympics, NBC has changed this to displaying the order for the overall count instead of the gold order. Why?

Someone said that American media has always ranked total medals but this is wrong, I have newspapers from Barcelona and Atlanta and taped coverage of Atlanta, Sydney and Athens. In Barcelona and Atlanta they have gold medal order, I don't have anything on Sydney but I think they also ranked by gold but since 2004 they changed order to total medals.

Also, back in 1992 they even had the "Unified Team" which was the former Soviet Union being represented as one entity beat the U.S. and NBC presented the medal table by the gold ranking.


Answer:

This question has been asked a lot. A lot of people have said other countries do it by total medal count. They do not and have never done so. See the BBC link from 2000 below. A lot of people have said the the US media have always done it this way. That's only half true. Some have and some haven't.

Why do most of the US media do it this way? I don't know, but there is no logic to it and no-one else in the world does it this way. Certainly not the IOC. They are the governing body. It's not up to anyone else to determine what medals mean. The system used by the US media means that 15 Bronze medals are worth more than than 10 Gold and 4 Silver which is clearly nonsense. A gold is clearly worth more than a bronze.

You could perhaps award a number of points for each type of medal, but such a system could be weighted in so many different ways that there could never be any agreement. There may be a precedent for this if you look at the New York Times article from 1912 it says that the USA won the Olympics with the most points. However AFAIK this seems to be an invention of the New York Times or some other body not associated with the IOC.

The IOC do not award points per medal and they do not award an overall prize for "winning the Olympics" - this is an invention of the media.

Without any agreement about a gold been worth 3 bronzes or whatever the only sensible way to rank it is the way the IOC and the rest of the world do it. In this scheme a gold is worth an infinite number of silvers and bronzes. I would have thought that this would equate with the US sporting mentality where winning is everything and coming second is nothing. I'm not belittling silver and bronze medals, The thing about winning is everything is an American invention - see the Wikipedia link. This is in contrast to the Olympic ideal where its the taking part that counts (and perhaps traditional British fair play).

The US has historically submitted a large, if not the largest, team to each Olympics and consequently have more chance of winning a larger number of overall medals. Perhaps, aware of this, the US media realise that ranking competing nations using the total medal count is more likely make it look like the US are doing well, or perhaps its just another example of the US doing something different to the rest of the world, because that's what they do. If its the latter, then as stated above it makes no logical sense and I don't know why they persist with it, other than "that's the way they've always done it" - although the New York Times article and other sources suggests otherwise.
