The Scorkl offers new worlds of exploration. Instead of holding your breath for 15 to 20 seconds for each exploratory venture underwater as you would do without assistance, the Scorkl expands your underwater range by 30 to 60 times. (Credit: Scorkl)

Scorkl enables you to breathe underwater for up to 10 minutes. It is small, lightweight and you can pump it up yourself, meaning it is a one-time-cost to be able to swim underwater for 10 minutes at a time, or hang a couple of Scorkls on your belt and go much longer. The Scorkl regulator is always-on, so it is a breathe-on-demand system which combines with a built-in pressure gauge which tells you how much air is left at any time. read more

Hooray! Hank Williams Jr Back on Monday Night Football

from Forbes:

Are you ready for some football? Apparently, Walt Disney-owned ESPN is again.

Six years after dropping Hank Williams Jr.’s adaptation of All My Rowdy Friends as the introduction to Monday Night Football, the sports network is bringing it back, beginning with the first MNF game this fall between the New Orleans Saints and Minnesota Vikings.

“I think it’s a return to our past in that it’s such an iconic song associated with football,” ESPN senior vice president of events and studio production Stephanie Druley told The Tennessean. “It was the original. It belongs to Monday Night Football. It really is about returning to what fans know. It’s a Monday night party, and that’s what we’re all hoping to get back to.” read more

Podcast – WikiLeaks Proves that the Press is Working for Hillary – Reasons Why the NFL is Losing Audience

Thanks to WikiLeaks, we no longer need to wonder whether the press and the dirty democrats have been in collusion. We now have several smoking guns. By all rights, these findings should disqualify them and Hillary. Of course it won’t. Will these revelations make a different in a couple of weeks? Who knows.

The NFL is losing viewers. Even their marquee games of Sunday and Monday night are way down. Many are wondering why America’s game has taken such a hit this year. I posit a few theories. read more

Drone Surfing?

Freefly Systems has previewed a potential new sport: dronesurfing

Freefly Systems has previewed a potential new sport: dronesurfing.

Drones have brought exciting new camera angles to sports coverage and even led to the development of the new sport of drone racing. Now, as a farewell to the summer, Seattle-based Freefly Systems has enlisted one of its drones for dronesurfing, a new take on kitesurfing where the kite pulling the rider across the water is replaced by a drone.

Podcast – Insensitive Yale Professor Loses Job – The Fraudulent Clinton Campaign – Is Colin Kapernick Being Influenced

A professor at Yale University has lost his job over comments he made in an email explaining to students that they should just look away if the witness an offensive or culturally appropriated Halloween costume. Both he and his wife, who also lost her job over the matter, had the nerve to tell the student body that people should be allowed to wear whatever costume they wished.

The apple doesn’t fall far from the tree in Hillary Clinton campaign, as her staff is repeatedly and knowing fleecing small donation supporters. Banks are complaining of the myriad of phone calls they are receiving, that the Clinton campaign is making unauthorized withdrawals and frankly skirting the law to do so. As one donor said that it is criminal and anyone else would be in jail.

It seems 49ers Quarterback Colin Kapernick has a radical Marxist girlfriend/fiancée that may be influencing him and changing his view of America. Kapernick’s now infamous National Anthem sit down/kneel down tantrum may have been the work or idea of the girlfriend, Nessa Diab. read more

The NFL Nixes Another Good Deed

by: the Common Constitutionalist

Scroll down for Audio Version

The National Football League has made the headlines recently. Unfortunately, not for the right reasons.

This weekend was the kickoff of the 2016 NFL season. Being that it long-ago supplanted baseball as America’s pastime, one would expect it to be in the news – that and fantasy football has become a nationwide obsession.

Yet it is the ridiculous antics of a few players which have stolen the headlines. It’s well known what the San Francisco quarterback did during the preseason. By sitting or taking a knee during the pregame national anthem, he has injected politics into the NFL. Since then, a few others have followed suit, claiming they too are taking a stand (or a seat, or a knee) against racism and oppression in America – the pet cause of charlatans and race-hustlers.

And for the antics that detract from the game we love, the NFL does nothing and says little – no fines, no game suspensions – nothing. We all know these fools have every right to protest and support their phony cause – and to that I am in full agreement. read more

Podcast – 49ers Quarterback’s Really Bad Day – Reuters and USNI News See Things Differently Regarding Dustup Between U.S. and Iran

Colin Kapernick, Quarterback for the San Francisco 49ers, was caught sitting during the pregame National Anthem. He wasn’t in deep meditation, concentrating on the game. He didn’t merely neglect to stand. No – he was making a statement regarding the oppression of black people in America.

Two differing reports on the very same event happened recently. The lefty news reporting agency Reuters, shall we say, sugar-coated the incident off the coast of Iran between an American Destroyer and Iranian patrol boats, whereas USNI News gave us a full and correct accounting of events as they really occurred. read more

Yes Olympians, the Taxman Is Coming for You

by: the Common Constitutionalist

It’s not often I repeat myself, but considering I discussed this topic in my last podcast, I guess it’s only half repeating. You may listen to it here.

But this one just irks me – the fact that our government is so hard up for money it has to tax our Olympic medalists. Oh sure – there is a way to avoid paying the tax. Just compete, but make sure you don’t medal. Come in fourth – or last.

I guess in a way you could call it an optional tax – like a sales tax. If you don’t wish to pay the tax, don’t purchase the item.

I’m actually a big advocate of the sales tax, in lieu of others. It really is the only optional tax – assuming you are like the rest of us and in fact not immortal, thereby able to forgo the death tax. Other than that, our government has seen to it that everyone pays up.

But what bureaucratic brainiac consciously made the decision to tax our Olympic athletes? Was it some 98 pound chicken-necked little worm in the back room of a DC office who may have been slighted by a jock in high school?

It has been dubbed the “victory tax” and is said to be opposed by Congress. But I guess it’s not opposed by enough of them, for there is presently a bill waiting to be passed that has yet to be. Maybe with a little more publicity it may gain some traction, but I doubt it. It’s much easier to pass a bill adding to the already bloated coffers of government then to pass one which could help our athletes who train their whole lives for chance to represent OUR country. read more

Podcast – Taxman’s Coming for Your Gold Medal – NFL Tells Cowboys They Can’t Honor the Cops – Hillary’s Tax Return is a Sham

Who knew Gold medals were taxed. Well, we should have – everything else is. Yes – American athletes return triumphantly from Rio proudly adorned with the hardware they worked their whole lives to win – only to be greeted at the gate by the taxman.

Black Lives Matter strikes again – and this time without saying a word. The NFL has denied a request by the Dallas Cowboys to place a sticker on their helmets honoring the Dallas Police Department – and all cops. Somehow it would stir up controversy and make a political statement.

Hillary has released one year, 2015, of her and Bill’s tax returns and charitable giving – but just one year. I discuss what a set-up this is and what a shame the return actually is.

I also quickly touch on the DNC staffer who was recently murdered and the LGBT Olympics. read more

My WND Weekly Exclusive

The left stigmatizes our 1st gold medal winner

You don’t get much more left than NBC/Comcast. This is virtually the only cable company in America that has refused to add The Blaze TV to its cable lineup. Sure, it was one of the first to add al-Jazeera America, or some might know it as Jihadi-TV. They’ll jump at that chance – but Glenn Beck? Never.

So it’s no surprise that the media conglomerate continually bids to air the Olympics. The coverage of the Olympics used to be about the competition – highly trained athletes at the top of their respective sports going at it until only one (or one team) comes away with gold. read more
