Muay Thai training in Thailand for you

If you want to experience something completely different on your trip in Thailand, we suggest you join a Muay Thai training camp. There is a good reason why Muay Thai is getting so popular around the globe and why so many people travel to Thailand for only one reason – training Muay Thai.

Although this martial art is practiced for centuries in Thailand, it became popular in the rest of the world in the past 2-3 decades. With the growing popularity of Thailand as a tourist destination a lot of people found out some great things from Thailand and Muay Thai was surely one of them.

There are a lot of gyms in the USA and Europe that are offering some types of workouts combined with Muay Thai training elements. One of the main reasons for this situation is the benefits that Muay Thai training brings with it. It is a very active combat sport that involves all body parts and all muscle groups. That’s why Muay Thai is attractive not only for those who are looking to learn a new combat sport and those who learn some self-defense technique, it is equally attractive for those who are looking for a way for physical activity that can help them sculpt their bodies and lose weight in a short time.

If you want to truly understand what Muay Thai means you should join a camp in Thailand. In this way you will be completely sure that you are practicing this sport in its original traditional form with the help of the professional Thai trainers.

Suwit Muay Thai is the most famous Muay Thai camp on Phuket Island.

Disney is giving amateur baseball pitchers in the nation a chance to compete for a $1 million prize in the Million Dollar Arm Pitching Contest. The Million Dollar Arm Pitching Contest is being held to celebrate the opening of Disney’s “Million Dollar Arm,” an incredible true story about two young men who went from never throwing a baseball to getting a Major League tryout.

Amateur baseball pitchers—male or female, who are legal United States residents at least 18 years of age or older—are invited to qualify to compete in the preliminary rounds of the Million Dollar Arm Pitching Contest at either Walt Disney World® Resort in Florida, Disneyland® Resort in California or at the Tribeca/ESPN Sports Day at the Tribeca Family Festival in New York City. The three contestants from each location who throw the fastest pitches will advance to the finals and have a chance to compete for a $1 million prize at the world premiere of Disney’s “Million Dollar Arm” in Hollywood, California. Official rules are available on Disney.com’s “Million Dollar Arm” homepage at http://disney.com/PitchingContest.

Presented by SUBWAY® restaurants, the three qualifying events will take place on April 25 and 26, from 7 a.m. to 6:00 p.m., at both Downtown Disney District in Anaheim, Calif. and ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World® and on April 26 only, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., at the Tribeca/ESPN Sports Day during the Tribeca Family Festival in New York City. Contestants will throw three pitches, each tracked by a radar gun, in an attempt to throw the fastest pitch. All participants will receive tickets for themselves and a guest to see an advance screening of Disney’s “Million Dollar Arm” at an AMC Theatres location later that evening.

Give Back with Bob Evans’ Hunger Free Communities

Bob Evans Restaurant is giving back this holiday season!


In America, an estimated three million households are food insecure – that amounts to one in six people who lack the nutritious food needed to live a healthy life. Bob Evans Farms is pledging to continue the fight to end hunger through its Hunger Free Communities campaign.

Farmhouse Feast® Donation Program
Starting as a grassroots effort in 2010 by restaurant employees, Bob Evans is once again offering the Farmhouse Feast donation program. Thanks to generous donations from guests, more than 5,300 Farmhouse Feasts were purchased and delivered by our employees to local charities last year. Now through Dec. 25, guests are invited to join Bob Evans in helping to make the holidays brighter for area families by making $1, $5 or $10 donations in restaurant or online. The Bob Evans Farmhouse Feast meal is available in two sizes to satisfy families large and small, serving up to eight or four, and comes with a choice of a slow-roasted whole boneless turkey breast or sliced boneless ham, bread and celery dressing, mashed potatoes with gravy, buttered sweet corn, green beans with ham, cranberry relish, rolls, and a pumpkin pie with whipped topping, providing a complete holiday meal for families in need. You can order one online now for your family to enjoy at http://www.bobevans.com/onlineordering. When ordering, be sure to make a donation to help put a meal on tables of hungry families around your community this season.

Fresh Produce Initiative
Another way Bob Evans gave back this year was at the grand opening of their new corporate campus in New Albany, Ohio on Oct. 26. They made a $50,000 contribution to support Mid-Ohio Foodbank’s fresh food initiative. An estimated three to six billion pounds of fresh produce grown each year in America does not make it to market. At the request of Feeding America, Mid-Ohio Foodbank launched a national initiative to get more of that produce from farmers’ fields to the tables of America’s hungry families. Bob Evans Food Products also donated sausage that equated to 18,000 meals to the Foodbank, which serves 20 counties in central and eastern Ohio.


I’ve been a fan of Bob Evans for a long time. Affordable, delicious, and convenient, what is there not to love?

It’s not easy to juggle my family’s busy schedule and also fit in meal time together. Especially around the holidays! Having dinner at Bob Evans, gives us the time to slow down, and enjoy the quality family-time we need. Now, it also makes it easy for us to give back – that’s a win, win for this busy mom!

Experience Thor:Treasures of Asgard Exhibit @ Disneyland #ThorDarkWorldEvent

Your Nine Realms experience doesn’t have to end with “Thor: The Dark World” – Marvel fans can now visit Thor: Treasures of Asgard at Disneyland! I, along with my #ThorDarkWorldEvent group of bloggers were the first to experience this new exhibit.


The exhibit includes a collection of treasures brought to Earth from planet Asgard.


After viewing these amazing Asgardian treasures, fans are invited to enter a chamber where the Bifrost will transport you straight to Asgard, and to a visit with Thor himself!


The exhibit is stunning. There is so much to look at and read. Trust me, you’ll want to see it for yourself, as my photos do not do it justice. Being placed right next to the Iron Man exhibit, Marvel fans are in for a truly out of this world experience. Disneyland has once again out-done themselves.

Not a Marvel fan? I can’t imagine. But let me remind you of how awesome Disneyland does the holidays. This year is no exception!


The Disneyland Resort just got merrier (as of 11/12), with all of their traditional Holiday favorites plus these new additions:

  • “World of Color – Winter Dreams” premieres Nov. 15. This is an all-new, holidays version of the very popular “World of Color” nighttime, water spectacular at Disney California Adventure Park.
  • “Disney ¡Viva Navidad!” – This new celebration, inspired by Latino culture and celebrations, features music, food, dancing and an exciting Street Party multiple times a day. It begins Nov. 15 at Disney California Adventure. This precedes our Jan. 3-6 Dia De Los Reyes celebration for Three Kings Day.
  • “Jingle Cruise” – The Jungle Cruise skippers decorate for the Holidays and add some fun new jokes to their riverboat tour, at Disneyland Park.

There’s no place like the Disneyland Resort during the Holidays!

Three of the top blackjack scenes in movies

Although blackjack is certainly a popular casino game, it could be argued that this fact has not really filtered through to Hollywood movie producers. After all, casino scenes in movies are not exactly uncommon, but more often than not, the games that are being played in these scenes are poker, roulette and even baccarat – but very rarely blackjack. If you’re a fan of any of these games, come and play them at online casino Canada, it’s very easy to access not just from computer but from your phones or tablets.
Nonetheless, despite this oversight, there have been a handful of great blackjack scenes in movies over the years – such as these three.

Licence to Kill
The Bond movies embody the complaint in the opening paragraph, as virtually every one of them has a casino gambling scene, but Bond plays poker (in the recent ones), roulette and baccarat (in the older ones), but on only one occasion does he play blackjack. That happens in the unjustly neglected second Timothy Dalton movie Licence to Kill, where he visits the casino owned and controlled by drug tsar Franz Sanchez, and takes £250,000 of the latter’s money at the blackjack tables.

Rain Man
This is unquestionably the single most famous blackjack casino scene in the movies, largely due to the memorable performance of Dustin Hoffman as the autistic Raymond. Here Charlie (Tom Cruise) takes his older brother Raymond to play blackjack at Vegas casino, so that he can exploit the talent for maths that comes with the latter’s autism, by having him count the cards. Revealing the exploitative selfishness of Charlie, as well as the savant skills of Raymond, this scene has achieved legendary status.

Ocean’s Eleven
Given that the whole premise of this star-studded remake of the old Rat Pack vehicle is about stealing from Vegas casinos, there aren’t that many memorable gambling scenes in it. Indeed the best part of the bit with Bernie Mac’s blackjack dealer doesn’t take place at the tables, but in a room behind the scenes at the casino. After having his past criminal history revealed by Matt Damon, the angry Mac accuses the former of racism, and utters one of the best lines in the film: “S-, you might as well call it ‘whitejack’”.
