My home state of South Dakota is worst at salaries, having the lowest paid teachers in the country. Missing from that is the fact that we do well in the area of having a low cost of living. This is not a defense, our teachers should be piad more.

So What was That?

So some of you might have seen a post on this site called the Danger Daily News. You might have even read it and been a little shocked, confused or offended. You will also probably also notice that the Danger Daily News has since been taken off of the website. This post right now is meant to explain what that was all about and how a breakdown in communication is to blame.

UFC App added to Apple TV

Today is a day I have been waiting for since the launch of UFC Fight Pass earlier this year. A UFC Fight Pass App has been <a href="http://www.macrumors.com/2014/12/09/apple-tv-ufc-scene-fusion-dailymotion/" TARGET="_blank">added to the Apple TV</a>.

The UFC fight pass service costs $9.99 a month in the United States but offers various subscription plans.

UFC.TV offers access to a variety of Ultimate Fighting Championship content, including free and paid video. Users can subscribe to the service’s Fight Pass premium offering with a 6-month membership priced at $54.99 or a 12-month membership at $99.99. Users can also access archived pay-per-view content, although some pay-per-view content is unavailable in many countries due to regional restrictions.

I've been waiting for this day and it is here now. Come Jan. 1, UFC will be getting some of my money.

IOC to Launch Olympics Internet TV Channel

<a href="http://variety.com/2014/digital/news/ioc-to-launch-year-round-olympics-internet-tv-channel-1201374451/" TARGET="_blank">IOC to Launch Year-Round Olympics Internet TV Channel</a>.

The International Olympic Committee plans to launch an over-the-top digital TV channel as early as 2015, which will be stocked with archive material and some international sports coverage.
The OTT Olympics channel got the go-ahead as part of the 96-member IOC’s unanimous approval Monday of 40 new proposals, which among other things include new bidding procedures that would let cities or neighboring countries make joint bids to host the Olympic Games.

Oh good, I was thinking that I had too much time on my hands and really needed another way to fill it.

My Most Sincere Apology to Every Last One of You

I must do something that I hate to do but which I am not afraid to do. In my previous post concerning the 'Star Wars: The Force Awakens' trailer, I embedded a video from Youtube. That video was not the accurate trailer and in fact, had I been a little more careful when examining whom it was that uploaded said video it would have never made it on the site.

I hate making mistakes like this because they are sloppy and are just so simple to avoid. Yet, I did make that mistake and will not hide from it. The original post now features a link to the actual trailer with a note of explanation for anyone who happened to view the first one.

Still, I did not think that was sufficient for me to apologize for a very regretable error on my part. So I once again apologize for this particular error in judgement and carelessness. I am truly better than this. I am not using this as an excuse but I will say that I am a tad under the weather and have not gotten much sleep the last two days. As I said however, that is not an excuse and what I did was unfortunate.

Just to make it abundantly clear, below is the actual trailer straight from the Apple website.

If my misplaced video fooled you know this. I am truly sorry and if it makes you feel any better, I have a form of OCD where this particular kind of mistake is going to drive me mad for weeks.

    Now if you'll excuse me, I've got some crow to eat with a side of shame and then perhaps I shall get some sleep.

Here is the real trailer.

Lots of Stuff Going up at AudiobookEmpire.com

I still have to use this site to plug my other projects because as of now, this one still gets the most traffic. So, I want to tell you that over at <a title="AudiobookEmpire.com" href="http://audiobookempire.com/" TARGET="_blank">Audiobook Empire </a>I have posted a number of <a title="Audiobook Empire Articles" href="http://audiobookempire.com/articles/" TARGET="_blank">items </a>over the past few days.

Most of these items deal with books that have been placed on sale over at <a title="downpour.com" href="http://downpour.com/" TARGET="_blank">Downpour.com </a>or <a title="Audible.com" href="http://audible.com/" TARGET="_blank">Audible.com</a>.

Another plug

I haven’t been posting here as frequently as I might, although still way ahead of everyone else! Anyway, aside from Audiobook Empire, I am doing some more long-form writing over at my personal site: http://caseytrowbridge.com/

That site deals more with my personal life and things like that but I try to connect some popular culture stuff there as well. I would appreciate it if all the followers of this blog check it out, especially if it was something I wrote that made you follow this site in the first place.
