Reading through the WSJ, CNN, BBC, etc. and found some very interesting articles that I thought I’d pass along:
- Prime Minister Cameron will urge Scots to fight against independence to keep the U.K. together. He stresses the importance to do so during these tough economic times.
- Joseph Kennedy III said he is running for the congressional seat now held by retiring Rep. Barney Frank. Could we someday see another Kennedy as President?
- Investors’ belief that the worst is over for the US housing market is fueling interest in once-toxic mortgage bonds… Really? Does no one learn from history and past mistakes? If not, we are doomed to failure…
- Kellogg will be buying Pringles for $2.7 billion, looking to expand in snacks and grow overseas.
- GM is freezing the pay of its 26,000 US salaried employees and will drop traditional pension contributions for those who still receive them. Wait… I thought they were on the road to recovery (pun intended, see what I did there?)?
- The US and Afghanistan have begun secret three-way talks with the Taliban. The Afghan president, Karzai, said he believes most Taliban are “definitively” interested in a peace settlement.
- Iran now appears capable of producing an entire cycle of nuclear fuel rods to be used to power plants. Israel and Western countries fear the advances bring Tehran closer to the ability to manufacture a nuclear weapon.
- Rising oil prices threaten to stall the US economic recovery just as it appears to be gaining momentum.
- A top euro-zone official expressed optimism that an accord with Greece could be wrapped up soon, potentially clearing the way for a new bailout and debt restructuring. Meanwhile, civil unrest in the country continues…

Haven’t posted an article in quite some time, but I have found a few minutes to write something that has been bugging me for a bit.
So all professional wrestling fans, whether hardcore or occasional viewer, is anticipating the upcoming battle between The Rock and John Cena.
Most of the hardcore, or Internet Wrestling Community Fans, are cheering for The Rock. I must admit, I do consider myself a very passionate fan and a member of the IWC. However, I shall also admit that I disagree with a lot of what the IWC has in mind for professional wrestling. I find much of what they say to be stupid, ignorant, impractical, not business savvy in the least, and markish.

I just finished watching the documentary FOOD MATTERS (available on Netflix), and am in awe at the alleged/proven power of vitamins and minerals.
According to this documentary, the medical/pharmaceutical companies are in the business of selling drugs. Shocked?
Although common sense, the consequences of this may not be apparent at first. If they only make money off of selling drugs to sick people, how would they make money when people make full recoveries and no longer need the medication?
The short answer is, they don’t.
The purpose of both this post and the documentary are not to make the medical/pharmaceutical look out to be evil, greedy bastards.
As the documentary put it, “You can be sincere, but you can also be sincerely wrong”.
The documentary goes on to point out how this “big business” has refused to allow too much research on the benefits of simple nutrition.
Nutrition plays a key role, the most vital even, in maintaining a healthy lifestyle.
To some up quickly some key points.
- Cooked food contains less nutrients and, because of the changed molecular structure when cooked, are actually met with an increase in white blood cells by the body (almost as if they were an invading organism.
- Vitamin C does cure the common cold and, with increased doses, much more (including attacking cancer cells)
- Look into “Super Foods” for really good nutrition
- At least 51% of your diet should include raw, organic, fruit and green vegetables
- Drink plenty of water (around 2 liters when you wake up BEFORE you eat/drink anything)
For more insightful information, simply watch the documentary!
I’d like to take some time to make my first real blog post about something I am truly passionate about. This something is pro-wrestling.
Many of you will see the title of this post and simply scroll on. I can’t blame you. Pro-wrestling has a horrible rap in the eyes of many people. Because of this, and the fact it is not deemed as “cool” because it is “fake” or “gay”, many have not even given it a chance. This has also led to the ridicule of those few you know who do enjoy it and and call themselves fans. I did not say “proudly call themselves fans” for a reason. Many fans, myself included, are “in the closet”, for the most part, about being a fan. Now that I’m in college, and word has slipped out amongst my older friends from high school, I am more open about my love for sports entertainment.

Hello All, this is my first post/blog ever so please bear with me.
I’d like to start by introducing myself.
My name is Ari, and I am a student, co host of The Motley Experience, and waiter among many other things.
I am very passionate about Pro Wrestling, I am very interested in Economics, Politics, Current Events, History (WW2), Acting/Filming/Editing, etc.
I am double majoring in Business and Economics and, as a creative person, need an outlet for my creativity.
I found such an outlet in making Webisodes for The Motley Experience on YouTube. However, I always loved writing and one goal of mine was to eventually write some sort of novel. Sadly, with the classes I have been taking I haven’t had a chance to write much (creatively) for almost 2 years. So I am excited to jump back into creative and opinionated writing.
I hope you will enjoy what I have to say, I know I’ll enjoy saying it.
I will also be posting on thefanboynextdoor.wordpress.com so please check that out also.
