Yankees Pitcher Ivan Nova Will Come to Your Bar Mitzvah

Thanks to a site called Thuzio,nike sko, anybody willing to dish out an X amount of dollars can do a various amount of activities with some of the world&#8217,air max;s ‘top athletes.’ For a cool $4,000, Yankees pitcher Ivan Nova will come to your bar mitzvah, wedding, or anniversary party!

This is like the make-a-wish foundation for adults. Only it doesn’t necessarily involve kids that have been through a traumatic experience or are ill,billiga nike shox.  Or maybe it’s more like some weird legal form of washed up/in need of ego-boost and/or money athlete prostitution. After all, Thuzio does give you the option of making a ‘custom request.’

If having a Yankees pitcher at your bar mitzvah isn’t your thing, you could always challenge competitive eater Takeru Kobayashi to a duck liver mousse eating contest at Plein Sud in TriBeCa!

Chiefs Fan Served Poop Cookies Mocking Team at Tailgate [Pic

It’s been a tough year in Kansas City, and one fan decided to express their feelings for the team by making an interesting dish at a tailgate,Beats By Dr Dre. Cookies that look like piles of poop were passed out on top of a Chiefs logo.

Via a picture that has since been deleted from @NAWTADIGM‘s Twitter account comes the most accurate portrayal of this season for the Chiefs. What these cookies tasted like &#8211,Beats Sverige; or if anyone actually ate one – has yet to be determined,Billiga Beats By Dr Dre, but they did look incredibly realistic (of dog poop, at least).

Shrimp exports to West tied to bonded labor

Editor's Note: Anti-trafficking expert Siddharth Kara is the author of “Bonded Labor: Tackling the System of Slavery in South Asia,” providing the first comprehensive overview of bonded labor in South Asia.

In the third chapter of my new book on bonded labour, I explore the shrimp industry of Bangladesh. Chingri (shrimp) harvesting provides a highly illustrative case study of the very powerful ways in which environmental change can directly contribute to human trafficking, debt bondage, and forced labor exploitation, especially in the far reaches of the developing world.

To research the shrimp industry of Bangladesh requires a journey to the cyclone-wracked southwestern reaches of the country.

Here, one finds four stages to Bangladesh’s shrimp industry supply chain: 1 shrimp fry (baby shrimp) collection, shrimp farming, the distribution to processors, and shrimp processing. Each one of these stages is tainted by some form of severe labor exploitation.

Bangladesh’s shrimp industry is relatively new, and the recent shift from traditional agriculture to shrimp aquaculture in southwestern Bangladesh is primarily a result of climate change.

Beginning in the 1990s, farmers began to notice more and more saline shrimp in their irrigation channels, primarily due to rising sea levels.

Bangladesh is within close proximity of several multi-billion-dollar shrimp exporting nations such as Thailand, India, and Vietnam, so landowners quickly did the math and realized that low-intensity saline shrimp would generate far more profit than rice or potatoes ever would.

They rapidly transformed the area from freshwater agriculture to saline aquaculture. Now there are more than 170,000 hectares of saline shrimp farms (ghers) along the southwestern coast of Bangladesh (and more than 400,000 hectares of freshwater ghers further north). Nothing else can grow here, and no animals can graze.

“Our children have no vegetables to eat, no fresh water, and no milk,” a shrimp farmer named Aziz told me. “It is terrible here, but we have no choice. We are lucky to have this gher; otherwise what would we do?”

Aziz was a former agricultural bonded laborer who managed to transition to bonded labor for shrimp farming.

Hundreds of thousands of other farmers were forcibly displaced by the shrimp farms, because shrimp harvesting requires vastly fewer people than agricultural crops. Many of these peasants were trafficked to India and Southeast Asia for labor exploitation.

Those that remain eke out a destitute existence of bondage.

Children are also heavily exploited by the shrimp sector of Bangladesh. Thousands of children wade into the muddy, parasite-infested rivers near the Sundarban mangrove forests to catch baby shrimp in small blue nets.

As one of these children named Mohammed explained: “None of us are in school. I wish I could be in school, but I must do this work or else we cannot earn enough money…This entire area is for shrimp farming, so there is no other work for us.”

Once caught, the baby shrimp spend three to four months growing into full-grown shrimp in farms like Aziz’s,nike shox, after which they are distributed to processors who de-scale, de-vein, and/or behead them before freezing them for export.

Almost all shrimp exports from Bangladesh are bound for the U.S., the EU, and Japan. This processor stage is rumored to be replete with forced labor,billige nike sko, but I had little success in accessing the plants as I was angrily turned away at gunpoint from all of them except one.

By my calculation, roughly one out of every 57 shrimp consumed around the world are tainted by forced labor, bonded labor,billige nike free, or child labor from Bangladesh alone.

As the average U.S. citizen consumes approximately two kilograms of shrimp per year, this means that each American eats roughly one to three pieces of tainted shrimp each year, just from Bangladesh.

While a low cost of production in countries like Bangladesh has helped shrimp become the top seafood commodity in the world, it is vital to remember that as with so many other commodities sourced from the developing world, this same low cost of production is a direct function of immeasurable human exploitation and environmental harm.

Price training hard for Thompson showdown

Price-Thompson is LIVE on Wealth TV and WealthTV.com on February 23

Famed British promoter Frank Maloney says David Price and his trainer Franny Smith are two of the best professionals he has ever worked with. The British and Commonwealth heavyweight champion faces world ranked American Tony Thompson at Liverpool’s Echo Arena on February 23rd in a 12 round international heavyweight contest that can be seen on Wealth TV and WealthTV.com.

Despite training for four twelve-round contests last year, 6ft 8in Price (15-0) took just a week off following November’s win over Matt Skelton. Maloney said, “David and Franny are a dream team and stayed in the gym over Christmas and New Year. After the Skelton fight they asked if the Thompson fight could be delayed until March to allow David a longer rest. We tried to switch the date, but the venue had no available dates and there were no complaints from them. They just said ‘okay,’ and got on with it like the true professionals that they are. Some fighters you have to be calling up and checking what they are doing, but I can rest knowing David is doing everything correct.”

Price, 29, is now ranked 9th in world by the WBC and rapidly closing in on the heavyweight divisions big guns,billige nike free, Vitali and Wladimir Klitschko.

Southpaw Thompson (36-3) brings a wealth of experience and has knocked out 24 of his opponents. Two of his defeats came against Wladimir Klitschko in world titles challenges. Back in July 2008 he lost in 11 rounds and earlier this year was beaten in six. Thompson is ranked 10th in the IBF world rankings.

In the chief supporting bout, another Liverpool boxer Kevin Satchell (9-0) will defend his British and Commonwealth flyweight titles against Belfast’s Luke Wilton (13-2-1),nike air max.

Top British light-welterweight contender Adil Anwar (18-1) will box a ten rounder against a selected opponent.

There will be a press conference in Liverpool next week to announce other boxers on the bill including another British championship contest.

Price-Thompson can be seen on WealthTV nationally on Verizon FiOS TV channel 169 and 669 in HD, AT&T U-Verse TV channels 470 and 1470 in HD, along with over 100 cable systems across the country as well as on line viewing on numerous connected devices and via www.wealthtv,billige nike shox.com.

Packers DuJuan Harris turns ultimate test drive into wild ri

GREEN BAY, Wis.—When Packers running backs coach Alex Van Pelt was informed by the personnel department that he had a new guy to train, he didn’t think much of it.

Not until he actually met him face-to ... well, chin-to-forehead.

MORE:

Van Pelt,nike shox, an NFL quarterback for 11 seasons, is 6-1. The shortest backs in his meeting room are 6-feet tall. So, when 5-7, 203-pound DuJuan Harris walked in, Van Pelt thought, “This is different.”

“They just told me, ‘You have a new guy named DuJuan, and he’ll be in there today,’ ” Van Pelt said. “He was just different than other body types we’ve had, which is good. Once he stepped on the practice field that first week, it was, ‘OK, I see something to him.’ He’s a talented runner.”

Harris has come out of practically nowhere—a job selling cars at a Jacksonville, Fla., Chrysler-Jeep-Dodge dealership to be precise—to become the lead back in the Packers’ post-season offense. When the Packers face the San Francisco 49ers on Saturday night in a divisional playoff game, Harris will be an integral part of the offense.

He jumped ahead of Alex Green, Ryan Grant and James Starks in a little more than a month since joining the team’s practice squad on Oct. 24. Harris originally was signed as protection after Cedric Benson suffered a Lisfranc fracture in his foot, but when Starks went out with a knee injury, Grant was signed and Harris was elevated to the 53-man roster.

In the 5 1/2 weeks he was on the practice squad, Harris opened eyes serving both as a look-team cornerback for the offense during walk-throughs and a running back for the defense during the full practice. With his Rubik’s Cube body frame, stylish dreadlocks and bouncy competitiveness, Harris quickly became a favorite among his teammates.

“He’s kind of a Transformer,” quarterback Aaron Rodgers said. “There’s more than meets the eye with DuJuan. He’s a very tough guy. He’s got great athleticism, agility; he makes some great jump cuts. ... He’s done some nice things for us.

“You have to give him a lot of credit. He’s learned the offense the last few weeks and studied, obviously, and the package for him is just going to continue to grow.”

Harris made his debut at home against Detroit, getting the ball on his first play from scrimmage because coach Mike McCarthy wanted to get a look at him the week before against Minnesota but never found the right place to insert him.

A Lambeau Field crowd was witness to Harris’ explosiveness when, after taking the handoff from Rodgers, Harris burst through the line for an 11-yard gain. He finished with 31 yards on seven carries, including a 14-yard touchdown run that put his tremendous leg strength on display during his first Lambeau Leap.

Harris continued to have an impact in victories over Tennessee and Chicago, busting loose for 70 yards rushing and 17 yards receiving in a season-ending loss to the Vikings. He followed that performance with 100 total yards and a touchdown in a wild-card rematch with Minnesota.

“Since I’ve been here, I’ve just been trying to help the team win,” Harris said. “Even when I was on the practice squad, I was trying to give them a real look. My mindset hasn’t changed.”

Harris has come a long way since joining the Jacksonville Jaguars as an undrafted free agent out of Troy. He spent most of 2011 on the Jaguars’ practice squad, working his way onto the 53-man roster late in the year and rushing nine times for 42 yards.

But the Jaguars cut him at the end of training camp and Pittsburgh, who claimed him on waivers, cut him four days after that. He was unemployed until Packers pro personnel director Eliot Wolf called him and offered him a job on the practice squad.

Harris had just begun selling cars, but his employer, who hired other NFL players in the past, understood.

Upon arriving in Green Bay, Harris received intensive one-on-one tutoring from Van Pelt. The two basically started out the way the other backs had in training camp and went over everything from how the holes in the line are numbered to which calls mean the play is going right and which mean it is going left.

“He’s been sharp in the meetings,” Van Pelt said. “There’s common mistakes in the system that a new guy will make, just little wrinkles here and there. He’s not a repeat offender, which is what you’re looking for. He’s learning. Once you correct it, it’s usually cleaned up for that week’s game until there’s another wrinkle.”

Pass protection has been the hardest thing for Harris to learn, but he's a willing blocker. In the wild-card game, he began catching check-down passes from Rodgers and turning them into substantial gains.

The Packers are hoping this aspect of his game will help them attack the open zones in Cover-2 defenses,billige nike sko, although the 49ers don’t play the traditional Tampa-2 and won’t be as susceptible to those routes. Harris is likely to split time with Starks, who is expected to make his return this weekend. Harris will get first crack, and if he's effective, could render the other backs unnecessary.

Regardless of what happens Saturday night, Harris knows one thing is for sure: He’s going back to selling cars when the season is over. They’ve been doing good business there recently, and he is determined to sell his first. He isn’t one to give up easily.

“I just got off the phone with them—they just told me they sold 10 cars,” Harris said. “That’s live. That is live,nike air max. Why not be a part of that?”

Police Report Details Chilling Final Moments Of Jovan Belche

The Kansas City Police Department has released their report following the tragic murder/suicide involving Jovan Belcher and Kasandra Perkins, and it contains chilling details about Belcher’s actions leading up to the incident, and his final moments in front of Kansas City Chiefs personnel. From the Kansas City Star:

Less than two months ago, Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher sent a foreboding text message to a secret girlfriend, expressing turmoil and frustration with his longtime girlfriend, Kasandra Perkins.

In the message, Belcher said he “would shoot” Perkins “if she didn’t leave him alone,” according to police reports obtained by The Star. At the time, the secret girlfriend thought Belcher was joking.

The report also states that Belcher told his secret girlfriend that Perkins “knew exactly how to press his buttons and make him angry” and had “threatened to take all his money and his child if they split up.” Belcher’s mother, Cheryl Shepard, moved in with the couple to help repair their relationship, just two weeks before the shooting. Then, on December 1st, Shepard heard the two arguing, but didn’t get involved (Perkins had previously accused her of “interfering” in their confrontations). She only responded when she heard gunshots. Police later determined that Belcher hit Perkins’ front side ten times, and five more times in her back — a bullet that made its way to the basement indicates she was also shot while on the floor.

A distraught Belcher hopped in his Bentley and drove to the Chiefs facility. An eyewitness recounts Belcher’s exchange with GM Scott Pioli:

“I’m sorry Scott, I’ve done a bad thing to my girlfriend already. I want to talk with Gibbs and Romeo. You know that I’ve been having some major problems at home and with my girlfriend. I need help! I wasn’t able to get enough help. I appreciate everything you all have done for me with trying to help … but it wasn’t enough. I have hurt my girl already and I can&#8217,Billiga Beats By Dr Dre;t go back now.”

Pioli immediately summoned Crennel, who pleaded with Belcher as police arrived on the scene: “You’re taking the easy way out!”

Belcher glanced at an approaching police officer , then knelt behind a minivan, made the sign of the cross on his chest with his left hand and fired a bullet into his head above his right ear,Monster Beats. After the gunshot, Crennel slumped, dropped his hands and turned away from Belcher.

Many witnesses, including Crennel, say the problems between Perkins and Belcher stemmed from money issues — Perkins hoped that being with an NFL player would provide for a better life &#8212,Beats By Dr Dre; but Crennel stated that Belcher was “smart with his money and didn’t live outside his means”.
