How does one select a final team?
We have all heard of “Ponzi Schemes” but what are they and how can you spot one out before it too late?!
The news about Bernard Madoff’s $50 billion ponzi scheme has some wondering what exactly is a ponzi scheme.
A Ponzi scheme is a type of pyramid scheme that promises a huge return in a very short time. The Ponzi scheme relies on giving big payouts to early investors to lure in new investors and using new investor money to pay off the early investors. If a Ponzi scheme is working the early investors will often reinvest their money in the corrupt scheme. The term originated with Charles Ponzi who bilked investors out of millions in the 1910s and early 1920s. At his peak Ponzi was bringing in $250,000 a day.

Heres the deal, Wisconsin is broke (currently $3.6 billion in the hole broke) so the Governor of the State, Governor Scott Walker (R) reviewed the budget & took his first aim…on the Unions.
The Democrats in office are not happy about the “Anti-Union Bill” Walker has proposed, so instead of voting on the bill the elected Dems have fled the state and are in hiding!
You may not know how many yards Patriots Tom Brady threw for in 2010 or how many sacks DeMarcus Ware had, but it’s pretty much guaranteed you watched the Super Bowl.

Aliens exist, and we have proof.
That Sci-Fi movie claim comes from Dr. Richard B. Hoover, an astrobiologist at NASA’s Marshall Space Flight Center, who says he has found conclusive evidence of alien life — fossils of bacteria found in an extremely rare class of meteorite called CI1 carbonaceous chondrites. (There are only nine such meteorites on planet Earth.)
In other words: Hoover is saying a specific type of meteor that had hit Earth has “life” in the form of bacteria which he says proves there is life on other planets because bacteria is a living organism.
