The 3 Biggest Problems With Professional Sports

This is the Biggest Problem With Pro Sports

There are many great reasons to stay up late to watch a professional hockey or baseball game. Each year, the Super Bowl is one of the highest rated programs in the world. However, this doesn't mean that professional sports don't have their flaws. It could be argued that the biggest problem with pro sports is that it has become all about the money.

Money Is Starting to Ruin the NFL

If you have watched an NFL game recently, you know all too well that the league will do anything to make a dollar. For instance, some believe that the annual games in London are a plot to put a team there on a full-time basis. There are also plans to hold games in China in an effort to expose itself to the roughly one billion people who live there.

The quest for the almighty dollar has also lead to a weird phenomenon in which a game goes to commercial break after a scoring play only to take another commercial after the kickoff. In larger markets such as Dallas, San Francisco, New York and New England, you almost have to take out a loan to buy tickets to a game, which has led to some home games being populated by fans of the opposing team, who take the opportunity as a vacation.

Players Aren't Immune to Maximizing Their Earning Potential

It has been reported that Bryce Harper wants $400 million over 10 years when he becomes a free agent. While there is nothing wrong with getting what you are worth, large contracts make it harder for teams to sign enough quality players to field championship teams on a regular basis. This is why so few players actually spend their entire careers with the same team anymore. Although the advent of the salary cap may create parity in some leagues, parity can quickly turn into mediocrity when a few players make the majority of the money.

Teams Hold Communities Hostage for Better Compensation Packages

The Florida Marlins were able to get the city of Miami to pay for most of their new stadium. However, they are still allowed to take most of the revenue generated from concessions, luxury box sales and ticket sales. St. Louis just found out firsthand how easy it is for an owner to move to a larger market on a whim without much opposition from others in the league. San Diegans did not want any of their tax dollars to help build a billionaire's stadium, as they voted against the idea of raising taxes in order to pay for a proposed $1.8 billion dollar downtown stadium and convention center in order to keep the Chargers in San Diego. It is highly likely that the Chargers leave San Diego for Los Angeles as early as next season.

Although it is common for cities or states to approve tax increases or other incentives to get teams to stay, there is some question as to what economic benefit the city actually sees. In other words, having a professional sports team in a community may not actually create jobs or make the area a better place to live.

Sports can teach us a lot about life and how to work together to achieve a common goal. However, it can also teach us a lot about the evils associated with greed. While few people will stop rooting for their teams anytime soon, professional sports leagues would be wise to respect their fans if they want them to keep spending money.

How To Earn Free Bitcoins?

"Online earning opportunities" is one of the most searched term on the net. Everyone wants to earn some extra bucks from the comfort of their home, but is it really possible? Yes & No. From my experience, I have learned one thing, you could only earn a decent income online if you have some skills. I am not taking about rocket science here, but you do need some basic language skills, knowledge about what is happening around you, having an opinion on things, and most importantly patience and common sense. People who have additional skills like designing, writing, transcribing etc earn much more, but people who lack basic skills would never be able to convert cents into dollars.

For them online earning opportunity means wasting their time for a few cents on PTC sites, faucets, HYIP etc. I am not criticizing those who use these sites, I am just saying one cannot depend on these sites for a steady (passive) monthly income. My online income consists of three things, surveys, writing, and transcribing. Everyone cannot write or transcribe, but participating in surveys and doing microjobs would not be a tough task for you if you have basic skills.

First of all, legit online earning opportunities are not "get rich quick" schemes, but with the below sites you could easily earn 0.01 BTC (around $5) per day without clicking ads or solving captchas. Faucets, mining, HYIP, investor-based games, and PTC sites does belong to online earning category, but I am not going to include any of these because:

1. When you take into consideration any of these sites,  the ratio between time spent and amount earned would always be 3:1. In short, if you are using any of these sites, then you are spending quite a lot of time for meagre rewards. Time is money.

2. Majority of sites in the above category require investment.

3. The revenue model of these sites are not trustworthy, there is always a probability of scam.

I know some legit writing, transcribing, survey, microjob sites which pays in dollars, but in this article I am going to include sites which pays in bitcoins only.

Almost every bitcoin user is familiar with BitcoinTalk. Hundreds of newbies create accounts on this largest bitcoin forum daily to:

1. Know more about bitcoins.

2. Promote their bitcoin oriented sites.

3. Scam existing users by posting malicious links.

4. Earn bitcoins.

I joined BitcoinTalk about two years ago to promote my microearning site. At that time, I was not aware that this forum could be used to earn some bitcoins without putting much effort. Today, I know almost all possible ways to earn some beer money from BitcoinTalk.

Before I explain in detail various earning opportunities, let's make one thing clear, BT does not have any objection on creating multiple accounts, but that does not mean you can go on creating multiple accounts with the sole purpose of scamming others because this forum not only have a bunch of efficient and strict moderators who would not blink twice before handing you a negative rating, but also experienced senior members who are capable enough to spot a scammer by a mile.

I had mentioned above, earning bitcoins without putting much effort. As far as you have basic English knowledge, you can earn, but the real effort is your reputation, your position (rank), the higher the rank, the more earning opportunities. You do not have to do anything out of the box to earn, just do what the forum demands, posting, commenting, arguing in a healthy way, enlightening new users etc, but you do something else and end up getting negative trust, your earning potential on BT stops. Might not stop entirely if you have skills like coding, programming, web designing etc.

It is a fact that people who are earning online tend to spent 50% of their time on PTC (Paid-To-Click) sites. Why?. Three reasons:

1. You do not need any specific skills to earn from PTC sites (just click ad, watch, earn)

2. As far as you have not invested anything and the site does not turn out to be a scam (100 out of 95 PTC sites are scam), then there is no risk involved.

3. Some people have the outstanding talent of getting referrals and people like these make full use of the referral programs offered by PTC sites.

Since last year there has been a considerable decrease in PTC sites paying in dollars, but since bitcoins became a sensation the focus has shifted to bitcoin PTC sites. As far as I can remember so far around 30 bitcoin PTC sites have been launched, but among these only a handful are well-established, legit, and paying without any delay. In this article I am going to list top 5 bitcoin PTC sites based on my own experience:

PaidVerts: The Next Gen PTC

I am a member of many of the popular PTC sites like Neobux, Probux, ClixSense etc. While I was surfing ads in of one these sites I came across the homepage of PaidVerts. I was just about to close the page after the timer has run its course when I saw the motto of PaidVerts, "Prove Your Value, and Interact With Advertisers To Earn Instantly". This increased my curiosity about this site because I had never seen any PTC site with such a tagline. I had wasted my precious time on many other fake PTC sites so I thought why not let us give this site a try and I signed up. After reading their FAQ section I was literally surprised because this site is entirely different compared to any other PTC sites.

First of all you have to earn activation bonus ad points. You will receive 8 bonus ads daily, each worth 50 points, so a total of 400 bonus ads daily. The more bonus points you have the more paid ads you will receive. Here comes the surprise, if you have 1000 bonus points then you will surely receive a single ad which is worth 25 cents. I am so damn sure because today my points were 1450 and I received an ad worth 18 cents and 6 ads worth 2 cents and 5 ads worth 1 cent, is not it amazing? To earn from this site you do not have to get direct referrals or rented referrals, the only think this site asks from you is be active. Click bonus ads daily and you will be earning in dollars in a week. I do not usually write about PTC sites because I am not sure about the genuinity of most of these sites, but I will highly recommend this site because the admin of this site owns the mytrafficvalue and this site has a very good reputation. PaidVerts is the future of PTC. If you are interested you can use the below link to join:

My Favourite Short Poems

It has been more than three months since I have blogged. I wanted to, but I was not able to. In the past four years I have realized that I am suffering from schizoid personality disorder. It is a rare personality trait, but it has nothing to do with schizophrenia. I used to blog about weird stuffs, but recently I found that I have no interest in writing about such things. I have discovered that my interests are decreasing day by day, there were so many things which I used to love in the past, but today I do not even feel nostalgic when I think about them. I guess I am running low on my emotions. I literally do not have any feelings towards anything, nothing makes me happy nor anything makes me sad. I do not feel any love or gratitude for my parents, even if something tragic happens to them I do not think it will bother me. I do not know when and how I became so emotionless. The only thing matters to me now is my loneliness/emptiness. This is the first time I am writing about my personal life and I had never imagined that my life would provoke me to write something like this. There comes a point in everybody's life when we have to choose whether we want to show the true side of ourselves to the world or we want to wear a mask and continue living with our secretive side through the rest of our lives. If you think I am writing this for sympathy then you are utterly mistaken, if you are planning to offer me some sympathy, I would suggest keep it with you, it might come in handy for you in the future.

I always loved art, be it poetry, short stories, music, paintings, sculptures, photography etc and even today when my list of interests are rapidly decreasing, I find that art inspires me and evokes some of the emotions that are still left inside me. "Art Washes Away From The Soul The Dust Of Everyday Life". People like me can find solace in art, but the people who create them are the ones who had and are living their lives fully. I have an above average imagination, but when it comes to writing poetry or short stories I fail because no matter how hard I try I just cannot concentrate my mind to convert my thoughts into words and I have an issue with patience. "Creativity Takes Courage", and in the past one year or so I have found so many creative people on Google+ who have indirectly helped me with their extraordinary talents.

From today's onwards, I am going to start a new segment on my blog which will be related to quotes, poems, paintings, music etc which I like. I am doing this for myself, I am 25 now and I would like to live a couple of more years holding on to my sanity. I do not have any suicidal ideation, my whole life has changed upside down over the last four years and even with my above average imagination skills, I do not have any idea what will happen in the next two years. So when the madness overcomes me and the darkness devours me, I would be happy knowing that I was able to share a part of myself with the world.

Some of the short poems I like:

1. “You see how I try
To reach with words
What matters most
And how I fail.” - Czesław Miłosz

2. “Even 
All this time
The Sun never says to the Earth,

"You owe me."

What happens
With a love like that,
It lights the whole sky.” - Hafiz

3.  In this world 
we walk on the roof of hell, 
        gazing at flowers. 

on a naked horse 
        in pouring rain! - Kobayashi Issa

4. A brief candle,both ends burning
An endless mile, a bus wheel turning
A friend to share the lonesome times
A handshake and a sip of wine
So say it loud and let it ring
We are all a part of everything
The future, present and the past
Fly on proud bird
You're free at last - Charlie Daniels

5. “I was born tomorrow.
Today I live.
Yesterday killed me.” - Parvis Owsia

6. "And the days are not full enough
And the nights are not full enough
And life slips by like a field mouse
                Not shaking the grass". - Ezra Pound

7. "The apparition of these faces in the crowd;
Petals on a wet, black bough". - Ezra Pound

8. "The Night has a thousand eyes,
And the Day but one;
Yet the light of the bright world dies
With the dying sun.

The mind has a thousand eyes,
And the heart but one;
Yet the light of a whole life dies
When love is done". - Francis William Bourdillon

9. "I'm nobody! Who are you?
Are you nobody, too?
Then there's a pair of us -don't tell!
They'd banish us, you know.

How dreary to be somebody!
How public, like a frog
To tell your name the livelong day
To an admiring bog!" - Emily Dickinson

10. "I strove with none, for none was worth my strife:
         Nature I loved, and, next to Nature, Art:
I warm’d both hands before the fire of Life;
         It sinks; and I am ready to depart". - Walter Savage Landor

11. "My whole life long I've sharpened my sword
And now face to face with death
I unsheathe it, and lo!
The blade is broken
Alas!" - Soto

12. "Today you are You,
that is truer than true.
There is no one alive,
who is Youer than You". - Dr. Seuss

13. “In the world I am
Always a stranger
I do not understand its language
It does not understand my silence” - Bei Dao

14. "He who binds to himself a Joy
Does the winged life destroy;
But he who kisses the Joy as it flies
Lives in Eternity's sunrise". - William Blake

15. "Avoid the reeking herd,
Shun the polluted flock,
Live like that stoic bird,
The eagle of the rock". - Elinor Wylie

Serenity - A Unique Love Story CHAPTER - 3

“They were from two different worlds. Two entirely different people. But upon their coming together, they created- they found- their own path and together they had their own world and in their own world, they were the same. Everyone else outside of it- everyone else was over there. Away. And they together- they together were here. They were right here. They were the same.” 

"And she ran into the night. Darkness enclosing her figure as she drifted further away. What have I done? There was a sharp pain in my chest. Never had I felt such a pain until tonight. I have to find her." - Cole Haven

I guess you all enjoyed the first two chapters of "Serenity." Here is the third chapter written by Lori McDermett, a writer, a pianist, a singer, and a girl with a lot of other god gifted talents.



"An ice cream shop? Serenity I have been to one of these before." First thing on the get Cole to live list was an ice cream shop.

"But have you had a EXTREME CHOCOLATE SURPRISE?!?" As she speaks, she flails her arms around as is her life depended on it.

"I cannot say I have." Her jaw drops and she turns away briskly.

"AUNT HELLEN!!! EMERGENCY!" She screams as some older lady comes out.

"What's the emergency dear? Is everyone alright?" The lady by the name Hellen says. I look at Serenity waiting for her explanation as does Hellen.

"Oh by the way aunt Hellen this is my new friend Cole. Cole this is my aunt Hellen." Her aunt nods at me and offers a warm smile which I return.

"It's nice to meet you Cole. Now Ren, honey what was your big emergency exactly?" Ren? Must be a family nickname of some sort. Serenity's aunt awaits for her answer once again.

"Well you see my friend Cole here has never had one of your EXTREME CHOCOLATE SURPRISES!" Her aunt gapes at me.

"Well we can have that now, can we? I'll bring you guys out one right away." She scurries to the back to make up this concoction. I feel something warm against my hand and look down to see Serenity has taken my hand dragging me to a table. No more than two minutes later her aunt comes out with a giant bowl of ice cream. How on earth are we ever going to finish that!?

"Dig in kids!" Her aunt says while handling us each a spoon. Serenity starts eating as soon as it hits the table. I stare at the bowl overwhelmed about not knowing where to begin. Serenity must have sensed my hesitation because she starts stirring it all together to make one giant flavor instead of a bunch of flavors scattered.

"This way you don't have to chose" she says with a mouthful of ice cream. I laugh at her carelessness, she urges me to take a bite and I do. And man I am glad I did. This is the best thing I have ever tasted!!! I moan in appreciation. She chuckles knowingly.

"Now either you are on the verge of an orgasm or you're enjoying that ice cream a little too much." We look at each other for a second, then crack up laughing. Twenty minutes later we finish up and I head to pay. Her aunt just pushes my money back.

"It's on me. Now go on kids. It's getting late and you have school tomorrow." Serenity hugs her aunt as she whisper something back and forth, giggling every now and then.

"BYE, AUNT HELLEN!!!" She randomnly screams and runs out the door. I offer my hand to bid my farewell but she grabs me and pulls me in a hug. tears are lightly slipping down her face as she releases.

"Thank you Cole." And she leaves it at that. I walk out to catch up with that little spirit fire to see Shawn cornering her. I walk towards them trying to figure out what's going on. I finally arrive at the scene and he is closing the space around her.

"Hello Shawn. What is it you want on this fine and now horrible evening?"

"Oh Serenity and I were just talking. Right babe?" He wraps his arm around her tightly making her uncomfortable.

"Get off me Shawn." she struggles to push him off.

"Shawn she said get off. So get the hell out of here." My breathing picked up as my anger grew inside me. I clenched my fist.

"And who's going to make me?" He smirked and pushed Serenity against the wall and kissed her forcibly. Anger reached it's boiling point, I couldn't hold it on. I was about to pull him off when all of a sudden he is on the ground with Serenity on top, beating him to a pulp. I couldn't believe my eyes. Seeing she had the power in her to kill him, I grabbed her arm gently and pulled her away from that bloody bastard.

"Now I suggest you leave before she could actually do some permanent damage not only to your face but ego."

He stands up, runs off to his car and speeds away. I turn back to Serenity and she's crying. Her delicate hands holding her usually beaming face, pouring all her fears and frustration into them. I tilt her chin to look at me and just stare into her orbs. Even with mascara running down her cheeks still she looks better than anyone on the planet. We stare at each other for a while with her hands in mine. Her eyes are desperate begging for help, but looks frightened to do so. I lift her slowly feeling the same little shocks of energy as I did earlier. Never once my gaze leaving hers. Then all of a sudden like as if a magnet pulled us towards each other, we were leaning in. And just like that our lips met. I was slipping into a trance of peace and happiness. I felt needed and wanted. Her lips dancing across mine urgently. I responded back to her with the same amount of urgency. My insides were bursting with joy and excitement. If this is what they call love, count me in. We slowed down a bit considering we actually have to breathe to survive but the slower we got the more pleasure consumed me. My body was under her spell and I loved every minute of it. Her lips fit perfectly on mine. My hands roamed her feeble body hoping to be closer. Then it came to a stop as we both gasped for air, still holding eye contact , except now her look changed as she was grateful and happy once again. The lightness in her eyes was enough happiness for me for a lifetime. Then the thought hit me. I can't go another day without her. My life wouldn't mean anything without her.

Wait what am I thinking? I just met this girl and already I'm thinking of my life without her. So, I did the only stupid thing I could think of.

"I'm sorry."

And she ran into the night. Darkness enclosing her figure as she drifted further away. What have I done? There was a sharp pain in my chest. Never had I felt such a pain until tonight. I have to find her.

“Time. Time has a way of standing still during the moments that define one’s life.
The first kiss, the birth of one’s first child, a paralyzing car accident, hearing of the death of a parent, the last kiss.”
