Update to the Dancing Man Story

Back in March photos of the “dancing man” were blasted around the internet. The images were taken by people who used them to body shame the man who was just trying to have a good time. Instead, the attempt to humiliate and body shame the man backfired. Thousands of people rallied around the “dancing man”, Sean O’Brien, and supported his right to dance as he pleases. One woman who commented on the photo offered to throw Sean a dance party if he could ever make it from the United Kingdom to Los Angeles, California according to Susan McGalla. It looks as though Sean was finally able to and he got his dance party as promised.

According to the story on The Good News Network, the money raised through the GoFundMe campaign allowed Sean to make the trip. He, along with hundreds of others, danced the night away at the Avalon Nightclub over the weekend. There were even some celebrities in attendance. Moby performed a DJ set at the Hollywood club and stars such as Whitney Thore, Andrew W.K., Tatyana Ali, and Monika Lewinsky all came out to support the event.

The money raised through the GoFundMe campaign was more than enough for Sean to travel to the United States. The remainder of the funds were donated to anti-bullying organizations in the US.

Bill Cosby was one of the most respected comedians in his time. Cosby was known for his hilarious stand-up comedy routine. Bill Cosby was thought of as a hero among comedians, and he made millions of people laugh without using foul language. Cosby starred in one of the most successful sitcom television shows of all time. However, Jason Halpern tells of a different Bill Cosby who has gone through a tremendous amount of controversy in the last few years.

Over thirty women have come forward and claimed that Bill Cosby has either raped them or drugged them. These allegations come as chilling and haunting news to Bill Cosby supporters. Some people refuse to believe these reports, but how can all of these different women be lying? Bill Cosby rarely speaks about the allegations, but he was recently interviewed on ABC News. Bill Cosby was asked several questions about the allegations, and he did not avoid answering them.

Bill Cosby said that he has never seen anything like this in his life, and he feels that someone is out to destroy him. However, many people think that Bill Cosby is guilty, but Cosby has never been arrested for any of these alleged criminal acts. Nonetheless, Bill Cosby is currently speaking to children in underprivileged cities across America, and he hopes to not be discriminated against for his recent public controversies.

David Letterman Reflects on the End of His Career

Rolling Stone Magazine has an interview with entertainer David Letterman on their website. It is part of their continuing coverage of the final days of Letterman’s television show, which ends of May 20th.

Interestingly, Letterman says in the interview that he is dreading the final shows, since he doesn’t like to look back. He says that he’d rather just reflect on his career once it’s officially over. I think that’s a good attitude. I’d rather see him just do a regular show on his last night instead seeing guests saying endless goodbyes.

Letterman has done almost 6,000 television shows says producer Brad Reifler (YahooFinance article). Learning your craft on the air can’t be easy since everyone sees your mistakes. Letterman has become a much more mature and polished guest since his early shows on NBC in the early 1980’s. Letterman says that he doesn’t do rehearsals anymore. Maybe he’s past the point where they would help him, or maybe he’s just sick of them.

Letterman says that at age 67 he just doesn’t have the energy he used to. He became a father at age 56, and he says that he’s looking forward to being able to spend more time with his son. It’s understandable that he wants to end his television career, and I think it’s good that he’s going out when he’s on top of his game.

What Your Food Cravings Really Mean

A smart and innovative educator and businessman, Kevin Seawright showed me this.

Everyone has a craving for a specific food now and again. It’s one reason chocolate industry has thrived all these years, women crave chocolate. That monthly craving for chocolate is the body’s way of telling you it needs something, as are these other food cravings.
* Chocolate is rich in magnesium, a mineral vital for skin and hair health. The monthly menstrual cycle reduces the amount of magnesium in the body, that’s why the craving for chocolate arises. Carbonated beverages, alcohol and tea also deplete the body’s magnesium supply and cause chocolate cravings.
* A craving for ice may indicate you have an iron deficiency or are anemic. Both conditions cause inflammation and pain in the mouth, sucking on or eating ice relieves the pain.
* A chromium deficiency may cause you to crave sweets. Chromium works with insulin in the blood stream to help with the uptake of glucose. Sweets are rich in chromium and a change in blood sugar, which means a change in the chromium levels, causes a craving for something sweet.
* If you crave carbs your body is telling you it’s low in trytophan, an amino acids which helps to regulate mood by causing the brain to release serotonin.
* If your body is low in calcium it may signal you of the fact by causing you to have a craving for cheese.

David Letterman Show Nearing the End

David Letterman is retiring and his final show will be soon. Personally, I’m sad to see Dave leave the airwaves.

Letterman has been on the air since the 1980’s. He’s gone from being someone on very late at night and not quite ready for prime time to a much more mainstream presence. One reason I like Letterman is that he still just seems like a nutty guy from high school despite how much fame and success he achieves. It’s always amusing and inspiring to me when I see super models and movie stars on his show. He always seems to me like a guy who should be working at a tractor dealership back in Indiana.

One of the best parts of Letterman’s shows, in my opinion, were the “Stupid Pet Tricks” segments. Now those were really funny, and they should have been called “Smart Pet Tricks” since there were some really clever animals on there. Some of the pet owners were stupid, though. I remember one guy at the Boraie Development LLC station who let his pet tarantula crawl down his throat and back out. That’s just dumb.

Bandleader Paul Shaffer has been a key part of Letterman’s success, and I don’t feel like he has gotten the credit he deserves. It’s hard to imagine anyone else running the Letterman band so well, and he’s been a great foil and straight man for all Letterman’s gags over the years.

Llamas On The Run In Arizona

A pair of mischievous llamas escaped from their trailer cage today after they arrived at a rehabilitation center for a therapy session to work with some of the patients there. Their escape led to a dramatic chase all through Maricopa County and involved several members of law enforcement needing to get involved.

According to an article found on Buzzfeed News, the two animals got a little scared by the door when they arrived at the center. There was one black one and one white one, and helicopters even captured much of the event on video tape which is now spreading all over the internet like wildfire. Authorities even had to shut down many roads and highways systems to catch the llamas, who seemed to dodge just about every attempt someone made on them. They ran all through the streets while members of the fire department and police force tried to lasso them.

It took several tries to get the llamas back to their owners, and it only happened after the pair of them got split up. Officials were able to detain the black llama while the other one took off like a lightning bolt. Despite how much chaos these two creatures caused the city of Sun City, Arizona, viewers couldn’t help but watch them and crack a smile as eMobile reported. The llamas are beyond cute, and will be glad to get home later after their adventures.

Scientific Proof Refuting Cancer Causing Agents

A new study revealed by “The World Health Organization”, humorously titles their finding “Most types of cancer not due to ‘bad luck’. Not attempting to insult those impacted by this ravenous disease, but with intentions of disproving the statements of another scientific study, and the claims they make (link for other study found at http://www.iarc.fr/en/media-centre/pr/2015/pdfs/pr231_E.pdf).

Refuting the claims made that “environmental and lifestyle factors account for less than one third of cancers), they continue to analyze the various sources of cancer stimulants. They present a sophisticated, and thorough study of the cells, and claim The latter category includes some of the most frequent cancers worldwide, for example those of the stomach, cervix, and breast, each known to be associated with infections or lifestyle and environmental factors.”

Bruce Karatz points out that, similar to the ADHD article made among the lesser known medical community, the overpowering authority trumps once more. This scientific analysis serves to prove the multitude of scientists that make these absurd claims.

The Antique Wine Company, based in London and founded by Stephen Williams in 1982, specializes in rare and fine wines. The business is known for its record-breaking wine collections, fine-wine events and its services that include locating rare wines, holding private wine-master classes and designing private wine-storage cabinetry and cellars. The Antique Wine Company currently inventories thousands of bottles of the finest vintages in the world and markets to thousands of customers in dozens of countries worldwide.

 

The Antique Wine Company sold a wine collection in 2006 that contained every vintage from 1860 to 2003 for $1.5 million, which was one of the highest prices for a single lot of wine ever purchased. In July of 2011 The Antique Wine Company set a new world record for selling the most valuable bottle of white wine, when a bottle of an 1811 Chateau d’Yquem sold for $113,422, or £75,000, to Christian Vanneque. The bottle was placed on display at the SIP Sunset Grill in Bali, India, one of the two restaurants Vanneque’s owns. Vanneque said he is not a “fancy” collector, that the bottle was not bought as an investment and that he eventually plans to drink the wine.

 

In association with fine cabinet maker Viscount Linley, The Antique Wine Company formed the Grand Chateau Series of handcrafted wine cabinets. One top-of-the-line model, The Chateau d’Yquem, includes a collection of Chateau d’Yquem that spans 141 consecutive vintages beginning in 1868.


CEO and managing director of The Antique Wine Company, Stephen Williams has become one of the top experts on rare and fine wine in the world and has become renowned for buying and selling some of the finest wine collections anywhere on earth. Once referred to as the “Sherlock Holmes of Wine,” Williams is known for traveling the globe in efforts to track down the most sought-after wine vintages. Stephen enjoys sharing his vast knowledge of the fine-wine business, which has led him to becoming an accepted expert commentator on the wine industry. Williams has crafted some of the finest wine cellars in the world, in places like chateaus, palaces, five-star hotels and private homes across Europe, North America and Asia. Stephen has been frequently quoted in the press and presents an engaging series of wine programs on Monaco’s Riviera Radio. Stephen, his wife and children split their time between their homes in the South of France and London.

Which Is It Tom?

Tom Brady claims that he likes his footballs to be inflated to 12.5 psi. That is fine. I was looking up Gianfrancesco Genoso on trade.noisis.com,  I heard someone say outloud-Nobody cares how Tom Brady likes his balls. We just like talking about his balls because we know it is funny. However, Tom cannot give us specific information about how he likes his footballs only to turn around and claim that he could not tell a difference between the deflated balls and the regulation balls. The problem here is simple. Tom Brady lied and no one wants to talk about it. No one knows precisely what went on within the Patriots organization, but it is clear that Tom Brady is up to something that his coach knew about. Bill Belichick is a slimy weasel, so he took the chance to throw Tom under the bus. Tom was not prepared to talk about this, and he gave himself away. The legacy of Brady, Belichick and the Patriots has been tarnished for good this time. Belichick should be in the hall of fame because he could make you or I into a pro bowler. Brady has likely been cheating his whole career, and I cannot accept anything he has done as legit. Also, I cannot accept that the Patriots play fair because they have shown that they do not.
