108 members of congress have signed onto my Resolution of No Confidence in Attorney General Holder as a first step towards recognizing that he must be held accountable for the actions of his department and for his personal unwillingness to cooperate with congressional oversight requests.
We saw that our customers required help beyond the data sets they had and that they could benefit from a wider opinion. So we built SurveyMonkey Audience, and we’ve now got 4 million users who signed up to take surveys. Our clients can choose the demographic they want to hear from, and we can provide that sample.
I had signed a four-film contract at the time of the first ‘Deadpool’ film. So I always knew that I’d be working in the subsequent installments of ‘Deadpool.’

The only thing you are really here to do is play football. So when you get a chance to go to the draft, and that part is over with, and you get signed on to a team, and you’re ready to go, now it’s back to everything you’ve been doing to get to this point, and that’s play football.
We were all ruled by the studio system. I signed a contract for seven years.
I was living in London with my brother, and he was a friend of Matt Marshall, who signed Tool. So we were the first people over in Europe to get the first Tool demo in 1991, and me and my brother immediately cottoned on to it.
I felt very strongly about the Ashley Madison thing. Of the 39 million people who signed up for Ashley Madison, only a tiny percentage of them actually had an affair. And I’d go a step further and say even if they did, it’s none of our business, frankly.
I realized a few years ago that as an actress I’d signed myself up to a life of disempowerment. I’m always waiting for permission to do what I want to do.
I remember having a conversation with Drake just before I signed. He said, ‘Make sure that, whatever you do, your opponent is scared of you.’ That really stuck with me.

Under Wenger I became the player that I am today because he’s the guy that signed me at 16. I owe him a lot and all the time I spent here he made me play so much even when I was really young. Those are things you owe him back.
The Declaration on Strategic Partnership between India and Russia signed in October 2000 became a truly historic step. The developments in the first decade of the 21 century confirmed that it was a particularly significant and timely step.
I was under the impression I had signed a three-year contract. I want to be back. I expect to be back. I will be back.

I signed a five-year contract with Barcelona. I’ll be here for a long time.
For me, it’s always been a financial kind of scenario. I was actually the first one who signed the ‘exclusive to Ring of Honor’ contract. I was the first guy who ever signed one of those contracts. That was tough for me because I had no one to talk to. I had no examples to go on. I was the guinea pig.
It seems that for all of the artists signed to a major, there exists the same amount of artists that are struggling to break through to the surface within the label. I think, ideally, we’d end up with a very well connected competent indie team that will be along with us for the ride, however long that ride may be.
When I was a kid, my daily routine was playing make-believe, and I kind of created these stories throughout the day. And when it came time to go to preschool, my English wasn’t really so great because my mother wanted me to learn Ukrainian, so she signed me up for these children’s theater groups.
Released in 1967, ‘Farz’ was the remake of a Telegu film that was turned down by most actors of the time – Manoj Kumar, Shashi Kapoor, Dharmendra… I was the needy and greedy one then and signed the film gladly.
You just have to find a lawyer that won’t let you sign certain things – and I mean the fine print, because I was gone from Phil Spector and signed with Gamble and Huff in Philadelphia, and Phil bought my record contract back from them.
Extradition treaties date back at least to 1259 B.C., when the Hittite King Hattusili the Third and Ramesses the Second signed a treaty of ‘peace and brotherhood for all time.’ They have become more commonplace as international travel has become easier and sensibly streamlined.
It’s wonderful and reassuring to see ‘Hichki’ doing so well. When I got to know the subject and signed the film, I knew that we were working on an important and sensitive subject. I knew that we had a winner at hand. But as artists, we are always a little anxious about our work, that’s just in our DNA, I guess.
I always say that, I never talked about the NBA, I never talked about anything because I was just playing basketball for fun. I didn’t think about being a professional and I didn’t even know you could be signed.
Ever since I signed with Nike I definitely got a crazy amount of shoes.
There was an obvious display of blatant sexism when I couldn’t get signed. They didn’t say I was ugly. They didn’t say that they didn’t like the music. They said I was too old! At 26! So Badly Drawn Boy, Doves, Elbow, James Blunt – you can be a gnarly old beardy bloke with a bit of a paunch and that’s all right?
I dreamt of being an Aerie model before I came to New York. That was one of the main reasons I came to New York and wanted to get signed.

From the first day I got signed to WWE, being the champion was always my number one goal, and after years of consistent hard work both mentally and physically, ups and downs, I was finally in that moment I had dreamt and thought about so much!

I was honored I was signed to Sony. But later I felt like they weren’t the right team.

A big reason why I signed with WWE in the first place was because my son wanted to see me wrestle in WWE, and he wanted to see me wrestle John Cena.
I was signed to a record label when I was younger. I was in a group, and I just wasn’t – personally, I wasn’t ready to get out there. I don’t know. It was a pop group. Not like the Spice Girls, but when you don’t have any control over anything, it’s disheartening.
I like being signed because you have the support system. It’s all about the growth and labels give you that support you need.
My first two years in the CFL, all I thought of was getting back to the NFL – it was like ‘I’ll put my time in up here and go back.’ Then I went and signed a nice contract in Calgary and was like, ‘Hey, I can make a living up here, this is great football, and I’m having a blast.’
I have had so many fine moments in Naples, but the first that comes to mind is when I signed the contract. I immediately loved this city and these wonderful people.

I signed with Kanye back in 2003, and at that time, ‘The College Dropout’ hadn’t even come out, so he was still relatively unknown compared to where he is now. He wasn’t a household name; people were still calling him ‘Kane.’
I was signed at 19 years old to a major label, and dropped by the time I was 22.
When I signed for Real Madrid, it was like a dream.
After my WWE tryout in 2014, I thought for sure that I was going to get signed and that it is finally happening and that I was going to finally be there. Then, when it didn’t happen I was heartbroken. I always think it is because God had a plan for me.
When it comes to wildfires, 2013 wasn’t a good year, which is why I’m especially proud that the majority of my wildfire prevention legislation was signed into law today.
I had no interest in being an actress what so ever, and when I was about 14 or 15, I was signed to a company in England. They owned a children’s TV show which they put me in as a singer, and I was on the show for three years, and I left the show when I was 18 and started looking for a record contract.
When I signed a record deal, I was always told by execs I needed to be like everybody else, that I had to show my midriff, things that would take away from who I want to be as an artist.
Who’s been with me longest? Kevin Blackwell. I signed him as a goalkeeper at Scarborough in ’86 and he’s basically been with me my whole career. He’s been my goalkeeper, reserve goalie, now my assistant manager.
I got signed to a development deal when I was 15. That fell through after about a year when the company merged with another label. Then I got picked up by Sony publishing. So I was writing professionally from 16 to 18. Then I started making my own records.
This idea that once you get into politics… you are now signed up for lifelong duty being in elective office, makes a fundamental error – and that is believing that the only way you can hold progressive views and implement them is in elective office.
