Review of the Kelly Pavlik v.s Bernard Hopkins Fight.

Bernard Hopkins the bigger fighter dominated Kelly Pavlick who moved up in weight class.  HBO Boxing  covered a replay of the boxing event played the previous week on Pay Per view. .  Kelly Pavlik’s camp sported the gear of the Youngstown Ohio Police Deparment.  Bernard Hopkins spent many years in prison.   Bernard expressed to Kelly after the fight that he was a real dude with respect and love for others.   Well said Bernard!   I still have a great deal of respect for both fighters.   Bernard is a special fighter, and fought a brilliant fight winning a twelve round decision.   Bernard employed a strategy of back tracking and then sliding off to the left and right side.   Then holding his ground and landing well place hard rights that many say is the future fight defense for fighting Kelly Pavlik.   Kelly looked awkward; styles can frustrate any one.   We all have been out classed or placed in diffucult situations in life.

Non-profit organizations have contributed a great deal to the world.  Non-profit organizations and the like have great potential to help improve society.  Careful planning, aided by the creation of non-profit organizations and the use of available organizations can make a big difference in the future. 

Kiva.org gives small loans to people in need around the world that are paid back with out interest, and reused to help others.

Charity Focus Organization helps people get access to resources to starting a non-profit orgaization and provides opportunities to volunteer to help others.  It is an organization run by volunteers.  They carry a very positive message and even offer banners that can be displayed with positive messages all for free.

Law Abiding 12 Year old Fought harsh judgement

God bless you little one,  Devil Rays fan, followed his heros’ lead.  By displaying a mohawk along with his family, Devil Ray players, and other community members as part of a recent fad.   To support the Devil Rays hopes of winning the 2008 Baseball Wold Series. They even died their hair blue.  The Devil Rays lost  a 7 game series.   See story found below at Yahoo along with the photo above.  Danny Rowe known around here as Topstockblog has my hair in a mohawk. a short 1/4 in spike and faded in Mohawk with a more balance transition in with the peak length the middle.  Plenty of mouse or gel to spike it up.   Some people find the Mohawk offensive; that is their baggage, not his.   Many people are sporting a large variety of new hair cuts with mohawk like characteristics.

Cuban tries to fix Olympic Referees’ with kick to the face!

Good Job my friend from Cuba. Referees’ are not what the Olympics are about. An upset Martial Arts competitor was disqualified for taking to long to recover from illegal blow. Then kicked the referee in response to show the referee’s aggressive tactics.   Olympic officials’ have become a scar of disgrace on the 2008 Olympics.  Several boxing bouts were judged completely inaccurately.   The boxers were robbed of their glory as the matches became a bitching session for disgruntled announcers and coaches.

China’s promised to crack down on human rights activists among others is truly a shame.  A shame that will not be tolerated.   Concerned citizen’s will raise awareness and protect human rights.

Jamaica proving to be the fastest humans; Topstockblog sponsors 2nd child through Christian’s Children’s Fund.

 

 !Congratulations Jamicai!  Beijing, China –
The Jamaica track team is having a very strong performance at the 2008 Summer Olympics.   Shelly Ann Fraser won the women’s gold medal followed by teammates dead heating for the silver.  She is beautiful.  check out joyous picture at Yahoo Sports.

 

Topstockblog sponsored a 2nd child through Christians Childrens fund.  Topstockblog is now the proud sponsor of a handsome and intelligent 7 year old young man from Northern Vietnam.  His community has a vast number of needs that often go unmet.  He lives in a community that follows Thai belief system.  To raise True ( American translation) out of poverty I have to help his whole community.   True goes to school almost every day in his community.  The school is very poor, and has no electricity or water flow.  Topstockblog is very excited about this opportunity to help True, and his community.   Looking forward to learning more about his life, and culture.  I sent his community $500 dollars to help meet needs.  I sent $24 a month paid for the next six months, and $200 for the community to use to buy goats for breeding.   Goats are a tough animal that adapt to many conditions, easy to raise, and sell quickly.  Topstockblog bought Sandra’s family some goats over the years, and this is helping Sandra’s family out greatly.
In my seven year experience with Christians Children’s fund it has been wonderful. Most positive experience of my life. My first child Sandra is ten years old. She lives near Mexico City, and currently enoying being a ten year old kid.  Sandra, and her family express their thanks in writing, and through good actions.  All leters are translated free of charge, and typed neatly with the original letter.  Accounting standards are hight at Christian’s Childrens Fund.  I recieve pictured documentation of all the supplies + holiday gifts I have bought Sandra over the years.  I am very proud to help her family live a better life.  Her parents work very hard, and make good choices.  Sandra wants to be a school teacher when she gets older.  I hope to share more in the future about my experience with my sponsored children with respect for their privacy.

Jets!! Jets Football!! Sign Brett Favre!!

Update September 15th, 2008.  Favre is showing his age, and I don’t like what I see.  Greenbay looks like the contender.

Favre has been named the starting quarterback for the remainder of the preseason, and looks pretty focussed on the field. Greenbay fans are very upset over the situation.
Brett Favre was traded to the Jets early this morning 8/6/2008 The Jetts are sure to have a much improved outlook for the new season with Brett Favre most likely the starting quarterback.

Is gambling fun or a problem for society?

 

Bush's Social Security Gamble

About.com originally found

Is gambling fun or a problem for society?  That depends.  Too much of anything is a bad thing.  So Gambling should be done only occasionally to be really fun. Particularly for those inexperienced with gambling.  Gambling can be fun; but, addictive and innappropriate for some people.  I enjoy gambling very much. Gambling of all sorts can be entertaining.  National Council on Problem gambling website  helps connect people who want or even suspect they may need help with gambling.

When gambling takes place with a low take out, and gamblers move their money through the system with a positive experience while tax revenue is collected.  Gambling is an asset to the communities bringing in billions of dollars ever year in taxes.  Money spent in casino’s and race tracks around the world goes through the economy many times quickly.  More times than a normal dollar because the same dollar is repeatedly wagered giving action and happiness to people that would not be created otherwise.

     A Gamble should have near a zero positive or negative expectation to be truly fun.  In poker they call this pot odds.  Make sure the pot is offering you near the odds of you winning the pot or better odds. When you are going to make a bet the odds should be remotley fair for gambling to be fun.   In LasVegas, Nevda Casinos typically return more of the money to the customer to offer customers the most value for the money. At many Racetracks, and casinos the takes outs are very high, and can not be beaten most of the time.   Sports gambling can be a lot of fun in places it is legal and add an extra bit of excitement to the game.  Low take outs should be looked for and encouraged.

  
The Poker Player Alliance website serves to represent poker players in congress with congressman Robert Wexler leading the cause to get on-line poker legalized. Regulation is needed. Poker is a game of skill when taking all the possible know variables into account when making decisions.  Start with good cards is a good way to play.  Be careful not to be too predictable, and remember the later your position the easier it will be to make good decisions getting to act after you have seen what the other players do.

   If you gamble frequently you should look into gambling rebates, bonus, gifts, and other available rebate programs to give you that edge you need to have a legitimate chance to be near break even.   Horse tracks offer legal gambling in many states over the internet. Bet small, and spread your money out is a good way to have fun, and manage your risk. Place and show bets are often bad bets because the track takes a higher breakage percentage. Getting a rebate or free stuff for gambling can be a way to get closer to a break even expectation gambling, and maybe even making a few bucks gambling .

Try to position your bets with a positive expectation.  Get a favorable odds when wagering versus what you expect to get back when I win. Realizing you will lose many bets. Winning and losing is part of gambling. Keeping a balance in life builds good karma. Balance is more easily achieve for some than others.
Take your time to learn any game well if you want it to be more than fun. reality that falls far from perfect to over come. After years of counseling I am a tough gambler not carrying all of my old baggage. Experience takes time to build, and we all have lots of time.

Regulation ofr on-line at poker, and video gambling sites would be helpful. Many sites will take your money and not return it. Horse racing is legal to bet online.   

 Some people, cultures, governments, and religions do not speak highly of gambling or out right ban gambling.  Truth be told through my eyes is anything that entertains, adds value to peoples lives, and has no victims is not a crime.  Gambling does pose a significan amount of risk for some. Regulation, and access to needed help is effective along with lifes lesson. Most of the time people should not gamble because they will lose their money.  On a positive note you can spend a nice afternoon, and or evening gambling at a casino, horse track, from your computer, or with friends from time to time for entertainment. 
  When I gamble I like to bet on horse races.  Horse races have been a part of my life since I was a kid.  I live in a town with two horse tracks.  Lived in Vegas twice.   When visiting stay on the main strip ( I recommend the MGM or Hooters is a less expensive hotel and still centrally located) and be careful not to venture to far off the strip.
