IncomeAtHome.com And Multilevel Marketing

Big time radio hosts and podcasters are advertising an outfit claiming you can makes loads of money at home.  Really!  All you need is an internet connection and some good old-fashioned gumption.  Well, as the saying goes, “If it sounds too good to be true, it probably is.”

Turns out the company behind this amazing opportunity is Herbalife.  Herbalife is a multilevel marketing company.  And multilevel marketing does not work for more than 99% of those folks who fall for the pitch.

Law & Order

I talked a bit about the long running police and prosecutors drama.  I mentioned a unintentionally funny line from one early episode.

I Might Be Rising In The Skeptical Movement

Ok, maybe not rising really, but I did have something happen to me through the Facebook that happens to the big-time skeptics all the time.  I was called names for being a skeptic!  Yay!

Made it, Ma!  Top of the world!

Movie Recommendations: 4 Days In October (2010) AND Catching Hell (2011)

 
I have two recommendations this week.  They are part of ESPN’s 30 for 30 series.  30 sports related documentaries by 30 different directors.

4 Days In October focuses on the come from behind win in the 2004 ALCS by the Boston Red Sox over the Hated Yankees.  It would end up being the season in which the Red Sox finally won a World Series, a feat they hadn’t accomplished since 1918.  But, first they had to defeat the Hated Yankees after falling behind the Evil Empire by three games to none.  This film documents the four games the Red Sox won to take the series, an accomplishment no other team had ever done in the history of baseball!

Catching Hell documents how Steve Bartman became the scapegoat blamed for the Chicago Cubs meltdown in the 2003 NCLS.  The Cubs hadn’t been in a World Series since 1908 and, as the eighth inning of game six started, it seemed a lock that the Cubbies would finally make it.  However, a foul but catchable ball went out to left field.  Moises Alou had a bead on it when a fan, Steve Bartman, got in the way.  The documentary looks into the fan reaction and the effect it had on Mr. Bartman’s life.  It also takes a look at the scapegoat in baseball by examining the Bill Buckner boot in the 1986 World Series.
