Travis Pastrana embraces the ethos that you must be comfortable being uncomfortable, and that permeated through every facet of the day as he constantly encouraged his guests to venture outside of their comfort zone. At 34 years old, with a wife and two children and a career that would be the envy of most anyone, it would be easy for him to relax. But that’s not who he is.
The lone operator was patiently waiting for his hour-long flight out to combat outpost (COP) Blackfish, located in Nangarhar Province’s Achin District, where the rest of his Special Forces team was deployed. Only 11 kilometers from the Pakistan border, the remote camp is one of the most forward positions the US military holds in the fight against ISIS-Khorasan.
The mission was to rescue an American and his interpreter that had been left behind after the Naval special operations unit was picked up after a mission, Comstock said.

Frank Montoya, Jr. worked a long and illustrious career as an agent in the Federal Bureau of Investigation. But his time as the counterintelligence executive to the ODNI may have been his most prestigious — and meaningful — position.
Programing is equal parts science and art. There is no single program that will work the same for every person. However, when we take into consideration general human physiology, pertinent systems such as neurological, endocrine, and muscular, we can create a base template for an effective regime. From there comes the art of micro manipulations to address an individual athlete's strengths and weaknesses.
Summer's high temperatures, sugary drinks, and too much booze can be exhausting. Instead of hitting it hard and feeling like you had one too many beers, switch your afternoon margarita with a sweet, espresso-packed drink to fuel your evening BBQ.

Chocolate and coffee pair perfectly together, which is why you traditionally see coffee mixed with chocolates, drinks, and brownies. Instead of using espresso, cold brew, or brewed coffee here, we tried the ground coffee beans and the depth of flavor that was added to the shake was insane!

The mood is sinister — especially as the lights darken — but there’s a taught electricity in the air, too. It builds and hums before dissipating into raw, unfocused energy that the crowd — standing serried and mesmerised — absorbs and channels back toward the stage, as if through some strange reverse osmosis.
