WHY: In American Uprising: The Untold Story of America’s Largest Slave Revolt (Harper 2011), the brilliant young historian Daniel Rasmussen examines the greatest act of slave resistance in American history. On January 8, 1811, a group of slaves began a violent rebellion on a River Road sugar plantation, their goal to establish a black republic on the banks of the Mississippi River. They marched toward New Orleans, enlisting more slaves to their cause as they closed in on the practically defenseless city.
Through astute detective work, Rasmussen reveals the details of the slaves’ elaborate plot and its shocking conclusion: federal officials and French planters exacted a terrible retribution, beheading more than 100 slaves and hanging their corpses from the city gates. This gripping book provides new insight into the American South soon after the Louisiana Purchase, with the Haitian Revolution a recent memory and the War of 1812 looming on the horizon.
Rasmussen graduated summa cum laude and Phi Beta Kappa from Harvard University in 2009. His senior thesis on the 1811 revolt won three prizes, including the Hoopes Prize, Harvard’s top undergraduate academic honor. To mark the 200th anniversary of the revolt, Rasmussen will speak and sign copies of American Uprising at The Collection on January 6, 2011, at 6 p.m. Copies of the book will be available at The Shop at The Collection for $26.99; members of The Collection receive a 10 percent discount on all shop purchases.

The New Orleans Saints
The New Orleans Saints took advantage of an opportunity to control their destiny on Monday Night Football by defeating the Atlanta Falcons. The New Orleans Saints clinched a spot in the post season tournament with a 17 to 14 win over the Falcons.
Atlanta has dominated in most games this season and gave the high powered New Orleans Saints offense trouble keeping them below their season scoring average. Still this loss could turn the playoff picture on its head depending on the results of next weekend’s games.
Should both the Falcons lose and the New Orleans Saints win next weekend the New Orleans Saints become the Number One seed in the NFC and make the New Orleans Saints the NFC South champs. This is however a long shot. The Falcons play the Panthers who are the worst team in the NFL. Still who would have thought the Chiefs would make it into the playoffs as a result of a Bengals win over the Chargers.
Still the New Orleans Saints are in the playoffs again and will at least have an opportunity to continue their defense of the NFL Championship. They showed that they can win in a hostile environment. The New Orleans Saints overcame mistakes, some questionable calls and the Falcon home crowd. This is a game that will prepare them for a playoffs filled with away games should they end up the fifth seed.

Lipozene is it a fat-burning weight loss supplement that’s manufactured by the Obesity Research Institute, LLC. Lipozene is a slimming pill which is often advertised on television, and plenty of people think about this diet pill as a scam and a con. The chief ingredient of the technique is glucomannan, that is a water-soluble soluble fiber which is extracted out of the root of konjac (an Asian perennial fruit that is cultivated in Japan). Glucomannan doesn’t have any fat reducing properties, according to the FTC. That, and to a lesser extent, the reality that many people complain about deceptive billing practices with this particular product, is why many believe the dietary plan pill is a scam.
A number of people consider Lipozene to be a scam since the manufacturer, the Obesity Research Institute, was charged and fined via the Federal Trade Commission in 2005 with making false claims concerning the product. The FTC states that the claims Lipozene has produced regarding fat loss are unsubstantiated and misleading, and they are a violation of federal laws. People also think that Lipozene is a scam due to deceptive billing practices. Many customers on consumer websites (for example Infomercial Scams and Rip Off Report) stated that Lipozene continued to charge their credit cards whenever they stopped ordering the product.
Lipozene states reduce weight as well as unwanted weight. It also claims to be both natural and safe. The body weight loss product works by creating a dietary
fiber sponge that creates a feeling of fullness, so you won’t consume as many calories. The product also says it will assist people lose weight by increasing fiber in their diets. Lots of people that have consumed Lipozene think that the product isn’t any more than an overhyped and overpriced fiber supplement pill.So essentially, you are taking a Lipozene diet pill about a 30 minutes prior to deciding to eat (and take it with a lot of water) so you feel “full” easier and faster. However, it will not magically melt the pounds off one’s body.
The naming used for the product is also misleading. The “lipo” added to the name “Lipozene” leads consumers to mistakenly associate this diet pill with liposuction. The “lipo” makes consumers believe that this diet pill will melt the pounds away just like a vacuum. Many consumer groups are upset by the insinuations of liposuction (including the Rip Off Report) as Lipozene is actually a fiber supplement.
The manufacturers of Lipozene have had a history of creating other fat burning pills like Lipozene. Several these pills include Propolene and FiberThin. during the year 2005, the Federal trade commission fined the Lipozene creators for making false claims about these fat loss products. Much like Lipozene, both Propolene and FiberThin contained only glucomannan.
Even though a lot of people think that glucomannan does not have any fat loss properties, according to the American Journal of Clinical Nutrition, there are studies that declare that glucomannan decreases blood fat levels in addition to “negative” blood choleseterol levels (LDL). In this sense, Lipozene may not 100% be considered a scam. However, lowering blood fat levels is just not exactly the same thing as burning off fat.
Lipozene is still being sold to this day even though the FTC fined the manufacturer for false claims in 2005. In addition , it still makes the claim that the pill is “clinically shown to reduce excess fat.” Lipozene is readily available through the official website and through many online vendors such as Enutra Mart and Dab Nutrition.
New Orleans Saints
The New Orleans Saints play the Baltimore Ravens in an inter-conference matchup that has playoff implications. Both the New Orleans Saints and the Ravens are in the playoff hunt for their respective conferences and divisions. The New Orleans Saints are at 10 -3 and are second in the NFC South and lead the teams in the wildcard hunt. The New Orleans Saints are currently riding a six game winning streak. They still need to keep their winning ways to insure a playoff spot. If they lose two of their last 3 games they could be watching the playoffs from home. The New Orleans Saints trail the Falcons by one game as a result of their loss against the Falcons in week 3 of this season. The Falcons would have to lose their final 3 games for the New Orleans Saints to be able to lose 2 of their last 3 and not be out of the playoffs. The best way for the New Orleans Saints to make sure and have a playoff spot is to win out.
Still if the New Orleans Saints win today against the Ravens and the Bucs lose against the Lions and either the Giants lose against the Eagles or the Packers lose against the Patriots or the Bears lose against the Vikings the New Orleans are in the playoffs.
The Ravens have an easier route. The Ravens can clinch a spot with these scenarios:
1. A win today and a Colts loss or tie and a Charger loss or tie OR
2. A win today and a Colts loss or tie and a Dolphins loss or tie and a Chiefs loss or tie OR
3. A tie today and a Dolphins loss or tie and a Charger loss and a Colts loss
The New Orleans Saints offense presents problems for most of the league’s defenses. The New Orleans Saints have so many weapons that when they are in sync they are almost impossible for defenses to match up against. The Ravens defense has started to show its age but is still a formidable defense. They looked their age against the Texans at the end of the game last Monday night. A great play during overtime saved the Ravens from an embarrassing loss. The Ravens defense gave up a 28 – 7 lead to allow the game to go into overtime.
The Ravens will have to rely on their running game against the New Orleans Saints in order to allow their defense to rest and keep the New Orleans Saints offense off of the field. The New Orleans Saints Defense is ranked 5th against the pass and 17th against the run. This is why running the ball makes more sense for the Ravens.
Here is the injury report for both teams:

Does Arthri-d really help to relieve joint and arthritis pain like they claim or is it just a scam. Is there any website to look at research and see if this arthritis natural pill works?
There are plenty of arthritis and joint pain products on the market that claim to provide relief. Arthri-d is just another of the many scam products out there. They all have the connection that their product name has some kind of mutated-adjective type connection with the complaint they’re purported to treat. Marketing is the key to their success. They are just good at maketing not good at real results. Check the question below yours for a question about “Xtend” (do I need to tell you what that is claimed to do?)
