    Wishing all the best to Emily Samuelson ‏@EmilySamuelson as she completes her undergrad studies at UM and chooses a grad school.

    Apparently she is specializing in International Relations.

    Heading to DC this weekend to check out Georgetown & Johns Hopkins SAIS as potential grad school... any recommendations of things to do/see?
    8:10 PM - 3 Oct 12

    Potential grad schools* Yes, that's right. I'm going to be a UM grad. =P Also, I'd be happy to hear suggestions of where to eat!

    I'm always happy to hear about a skater going for more education. Good for her! Georgetown and Hopkins are two of the best universities in the country.

    if we use the examples of Bin Yao and Oleg Vassiliev, where one is clearly the lesser skater, then I'd say Maurizio will be better than Babs. But I have a feeling that although Babs was a diva on the ice, she's probably very nurturing and motherly off the ice.

    Davis/White media call re Skate America

    U.S. Figure Skating ‏@USFigureSkating has started tweeting comments from Davis/White's media call today re Skate America. (But so far, no breaking news about their programs.)

    @Meryl_Davis "Charlie and I feel fantastic going into Skate America. We have two programs that we feel great about"
    11:03 AM - 4 Oct 12

    @CharlieaWhite "I think Skate America is going to be a good early test...We want to announce to the world that we are ready."

    Hubbell/Donohue FD

    You mentioned 2 music cuts for them on the Programs thread: "Farucas" and "Un Amor". but there are 3 of them.

    I am a fan of these two by the way, this will be a strong FD for them.

    I'm not a flamenco expert, but as a know nothing, I like the arm & hand movements they are doing-if they aren't pretty authentic, they should be.

    Do you know the third cut?

    Their icenetwork bio only lists two, so I went with that.

    I like H/D's FD very much, it should polish up really nicely for them. From purely a dance perspective, The arm movements are authentic ( Madison has lovely fluid wrist movements ) They just need a bit more strength and tension in the arms in some places. I noticed quite a few typically rumba flamenca accents. If they can get the timing just right ,especially in that last accent-y section..it will be exciting. Love their strength lift... and the lift with her riding on his boot with forward extension is still the best this year , though you see versions of it cropping up all over the place. I'm looking forward to seeing this at Skate Canada after another few weeks of honing.
