Don Mattingly Joins Bob Salomon’s Epic Journey | Baseball Digest

Via Scoop.itToday’s Transmedia Sports

It is amazing how one life could drastically change with hard work, a passion, and dedication. Three years ago, Bob Salomon was just a regular family man with a wife, two kids, and a full-time job as an officer for the state of New Jersey. While Salomon enters his 24th year on the job, these days you can also find him at the center of a unique movement with the commitment to making a difference. As the co-creator and driving force behind the children’s book, “A Glove of Their Own,” Bob has watched numerous organizations and foundations use his book as a platform to spread the message of giving and helping children.   “A Glove of Their Own” is a story about paying it forward and children who play baseball simply for the love of the game. You’ll find no coaches, no concession stands, and sometimes just an old bat and ball. This is the way baseball was meant to be. It has the power to touch both the old and young, with the underlining theme of both kindness and “paying it forward”.

What is the Stop Trading on Congressional Knowledge (STOCK) Act? – Insider Trading by Congress – ProCon.org

Via Scoop.itTransmedia Thought Leadership

Congress being caught by suprise suddenly has decided to do the right thing.  Bernie Madoff must be some kind of pissed off right now.  As I suspect that his dealings and what has been happening for decades has come to light because of a 60 Minutes expose which has both sides of Congress looking somewhat guilty.   In a effort today the US Senate decided to bring to the floor a Bi-partisoan bill to fix the problem.   But will it really.  And what about the past profiteering.  We have to agree that Insider Trading is wrong.  Should Congress be required to repay the ill-gotten gain?  Pay a fine if is proven.  What is the penalty?  What about transparency in governement?    Finally have you ever wondered why millionares and billionaires run for office?    The Presidency pays $400 Grand a year.  A Obvious pay cut for Mitt Romney who got paid just under that for speakers fees.    If the Insider Trading Rules are enforced as most Americans already thought ws the case, what would be the incentive to serve in Congress?    What’s your opinion?     Read More about the Legislation and the steam its now getting in Congress and the Senate.  Keep your eyes on this one folks as EVERYTHING MUST CHANGE.

CNN released this statement today: “Rick Sanchez is no longer with the company. We thank Rick for his years of service and we wish him well.“ They will broadcast CNN Newsroom from 3-5pm for the foreseeable future.   Was wondering about the dissapperance of Rick Sanchez from CNN.  We miss his voice and look forward to his comeback on @RickSanchezTV @wcntv  Just heard the interview and cannot believe he got canned for a Jon Stewart Rant.   Check out this interview and ask yourself did he say anything that would warrent his firing?   What a price to pay for speaking his mind. Thank God the Internet is still free and free speech part of the constitution. @wcntv will be following you Rick.   This may be old news but I am sure not to Rick, his family and followers.  As is with news when you are killed off, you just dissapear. Sorry it took me so long Rick.  Miss your List and had not idea until today.
