m88 in any case, before registering with
the local government (what we call the City Hall), you need to comply
first with several requirements (clearances, payments, etc.). Keep in constant touch with your accountant and/or your lawyer so that you know the status of your registration. Usually, export businesses are given income tax holidays. This is where we pay our taxes. This will save you several years’ worth of city taxes.. You cannot transact in the country if you don’t have this. You can also go to the BIR’s website for more information.
Last Note: Make sure you get a good accountant and/or lawyer since they will be able to help you during your registration, and also do the legwork for you. It grants income-tax holidays for businesses that are in preferred industries or are pioneers in their industries. Registering your company with the BIR is a fairly easy (and inexpensive) process.
So now, you have seen how it is to register a business in the Philippines. Just reserve your name with
the Philippine Department of Trade and Industry. Failure to do so will subject your company to penalties.
Registering Your Business – for Sole Proprietorship
are the only owner of your business (sole or single proprietor), you
don’t need to go to the SEC to register. Others (which is
maybe the majority) choose to register first with the local government
where their business is residing. Some corporations register first with the
BIR when they do not have any transaction yet. This is a requirement under our laws. It might be better if you yourself have a working knowledge of my country’s requirements so that you are aware of what you need to do and what you need to go through when you put up a business and invest in the Philippines.
You can interchange this next step with the
registration with the BIR. Take Note: Once you are registered with the City Hall and the BIR, they will provide you with certificates evidencing your registration. If your name is unique, approval is immediate. The local
government fee will depend on the prevailing local laws and the type of
business you are in. You need to get your accountant to have this
calculated at once so that you’ll know how much you need to pay the
local government. It may take only one week and the fee is minimal (less than $30). For local registration requirements (the BIR and the City Hall), my recommendation is to get an accountant / lawyer who is from that city or province because he/she is more well-versed in the ins and outs of their local city hall or BIR. If you don’t want to go to the BOI, go to the local City Hall and the local investment board and apply for a holiday on local taxes. The BIR is our local equivalent of the United States’ IRS. As a new corporation, you are required to get your TIN (Tax Identification Number) from the BIR. You are required to post these certificates in your respective offices. Unlike
the SEC and the BIR, the fee here is not quite that fixed. Again, your accountant can help you with this process. Next step is to register your business with the Bureau of Internal Revenue or the BIR. The fees here are also minimal (around $10 or so).
Next Stop – The Bureau of Internal Revenue
Okay, so you have already registered your company with the Philippine SEC (which may take one week if all your requirements are in order). Once you get your business permit (which is renewed
every year), you’re ready to start your business.
A Further Note: If you want to save on taxes, you might want to register your business with the Board of Investments or BOI. All these may be done within one month if all the requirements are in place

ET. That partnership was also recently extended through 2022 in a deal worth $12 billion over eight years — an average of $1.5 billion per year. The week 7 game will take place at London’s Wembley Stadium and will be broadcast at 9:30 a.m.
So far, the only distributors for national games had been television networks. But speculation has increased over the past couple years that a streaming service, such as Netflix (NFLX, Tech30), YouTube, Hulu, Amazon (AMZN, Tech30) or Apple (AAPL, Tech30), could one day bid to broadcast a slate of games. Disney’s (DIS) Watch ESPN app also allows users to watch live tennis matches, golf tournaments and college football and basketball games.
For the first time in the NFL’s history, the league will broadcast a live game online on Oct. and 4:30 p.m.
But in the United States, the NFL is the crown jewel. The Jaguars were one of the worst teams in the league last year, and the Bills haven’t made the playoffs in 15 years — the longest active streak in the league.
If the NFL is going to test something radical, it picked the right game. More than 2 million DirecTV customers subscribed to its NFL Sunday Ticket package last season, paying between $200 and $300.

. NBC has the rights to Sunday night games while ESPN airs “Monday Night Football” and both of those deals are also tied up for the next seven seasons.
The NFL has yet to name the online service that will stream the Bills-Jaguars game, but one likely suitor is YouTube. Sports bars won’t exactly be filled to capacity then, and ratings will likely be lower than the typical 1 p.m.
Fox (FOXA) and CBS (CBS) have agreements to air Sunday games through 2022. Unless you live in the Buffalo or Jacksonville areas, the only way to watch the game will be to stream it. CBS’ Thursday Night Football deal could be up soon: The network renewed its contract for the 2015 season, and the league has the option of renewing again in 2016. The NFL broadcasts eight Thursday night games a year on its own NFL Network, and CBS has the right to the other eight games.
DirecTV (DTV) currently has the exclusive broadcast rights for a package that lets fans watch any NFL game they want on Sundays. Google (GOOGL, Tech30) executives met with NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell in 2013 to discuss carrying live NFL games on YouTube, according to NFL spokesman Brian McCarthy. As a growing (mostly young) population opts out of cable and satellite TV subscriptions, the NFL is undoubtedly looking for ways to reach that audience too. That means DirecTV pays the NFL at least double what it brings in from its subscribers. The NFL hasn’t committed to any online streaming broadcasts other than this one game. 25.
The games most likely to be in play for a possible streaming license is Thursday Night Football.
Currently, professional baseball, hockey and basketball games are available on various streaming services.
But DirecTV could serve as a cautionary tale for streaming services looking to seek broadcasting rights: The satellite provider is likely losing money on its NFL deal. Sunday games.
If the streaming experiment is a success, it could eventually lead to a broader online deal.
This live stream is just an “experiment,” McCarthy said

We call it (SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE).
BOURDAIN: Hopefully, what would Beirut be like in 10 years?
BOURDAIN: This Bourjdalmahaj (ph) neighborhood has long been the home to principally Palestinian refugees but more recently it has become an area for Syrians fleeing the arms of President Assad on one hand and the predations of ISIS on the other.
[02:21:40] KENO, SYRIAN-FILIPINO RAPPER: I’m back here. SHORT: Cheers.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Here is to Tony, man.
BOURDAIN: And I was like, what?
BOURDAIN: These are beard related issues.
(voice-over): During my first trip here in 2006, Hezbollah guerillas killed three Israeli soldiers and captured two others in a cross- border raid.
UNIDENTIFIED SECURITY SPECIALIST: This is Lebanon. She is Joumana Haddad, culture editor of Lebanon’s biggest newspaper, “An Nahar.”
PATON WALSH: The threat is spiraling. It has been put in front of us. The first time in the history a Palestinian leads Americans.
BOURDAIN: Am I wrong to love this place?
BOURDAIN (voice-over): And in the words of Vladimir Lenin, “Let’s get the party started.” Or was that Rick James?
I don’t need to tell you about Islamic State.
SHORT: Yeah, yeah. It’s happening all the time. They kill hundreds and thousands of Shiites. It is kind of mind blowing.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: And I told him there is a guy called Tony, CNN.
BOURDAIN (voice-over): Beirut, seemingly the world in miniature. embassy bombing. It’s a good way to see Beirut.
Return to Transcripts main page
BOURDAIN (on camera): How you doing? I’m Tony.
BOURDAIN (voice-over): In 2003, by now, a music producer, entrepreneur, politician, artist, author and film maker, he founded the Beirut music hall, in a bullet-popped theater empty since the civil war.
DOUBLE A: I see it like this.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Yes.
BOURDAIN: Thank you so much for having me in your home. Trapped, unable to work, they exist invisibly on the margins of society.
UNIDENTIFIED SECURITY SPECIALIST: We have only one good neighbor that don’t affect us. One night, 3:00 a.m., the army entered our house and I found them in our bedroom looking for the Free Syrian Army. The party is more powerful, more effective on the ground than the Lebanese Army. This is the only reason.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Yeah.
BOURDAIN (on camera): Nice ride.
BOURDAIN: How different is Damascus from Beirut?
[21:05:06] But along its borders, the country has what you might call serious neighbor issues.
BOURDAIN: Being stopped at any of the city’s ubiquitous military check points could mean a one-way ticket back to Syria. This is a fully functioning, more or less, by world standards. We have seen widespread anger and widespread finger pointing.
PATON WALSH: Yeah. But also nightclubs, discos, beaches, bikinis, where much of the Arab world comes to let their hair down. UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I am Riwanda (ph).
HADDAD: Yes, definitely. In the 34-day war that followed, much of Beirut was heavily pounded by bombs and artilleries.
BOURDAIN: Yeah, this is a –
UNIDENTIFIED ENGLISH TEACHER: He is there, by the way, and he has three kids.
BOURDAIN (voice-over): The roasted chicken was this man’s idea, my British-Lebanese friend, born to be wild, Ramsey Short, who I met in the bad old days of 2006.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Because the people of this area, 99 percent, they support Hezbollah.
BOURDAIN (on camera): Here we go.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Yes. Actually now, I have four months left, and I really have no idea what I am going to do. But it made no difference to me.
SHORT: ISIS, in many ways, is something we have never really seen before, a really large well-organized, well-equipped terrorist army.
UNIDENTIFIED SECURITY SPECIALIST: Of course.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I don’t think that there’s anything worthy in the world for human blood.
BOURDAIN: So good.
BOURDAIN: Are we picking up a gun or not?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: And spices. Some come because they like to discover new things. When I was 14 years old, for example, I became a Communist in a region that was under control of the extreme right wing militia.
The refugees in Syria, most of them are well educated, doctors, engineers, lawyers, teachers. You have this really extraordinary mix of religions and people.
LEFTIARUS (ph): Some people come because it’s trendy. When is it permissible to use a car bomb or using civilian targets?
BOURDAIN: It’s sort of awesome.
BOURDAIN: Whoa. Nowhere. Hello.
BOURDAIN: Will things be better?
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Two types.
BOURDAIN: Why this neighborhood?
– but we don’t make fun of them. It’s in our core to be poetic. Not today.
BOURDAIN: Do they the arrest you? Do they take you to the border and kick you over to the other side? How does that -
(on camera): All right, here you go, big boy.
BOURDAIN: Is that — why, yes. Against killing anybody, even Israel.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: ISIS.
(on camera): What is this?
PATON WALSH: It is stunning to be walking down the street behind short skirts and red wine flowing and drive straight into an extraordinarily conservative Shiite district.
ANTHONY BOURDAIN PARTS UNKNOWN
SHORT: This is a famous neighborhood of the city.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Oh, no, we have to have it.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: A victory for jihad.
BOURDAIN: I had somebody who lives here tell me, oh, this place is very good, and stay the here longer.
[21:10:12] UNIDENTIFIED ENGLISH TEACHER: We have many, many problems.
I have something for you.
BOURDAIN: I was watching the news last night in the hotel and it is genuinely terrifying. I think we would have to all to be united to fight the monster, ISIS.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I hope so.
BOURDAIN (on camera): In the early days Hezbollah used tactics that just about anyone would call terrorism. People are friendly.
UNIDENTIFIED ENGLISH TEACHER: OK. Needless to say, he had at one time a better life back there. The camp saw heavy fighting, shelling and outright massacres during the religious conflict known as the Lebanese Civil War.
UNIDENTIFIED ENGLISH TEACHER: To cross the sea.
Beirut, there is no place like it.
BOURDAIN (voice-over): And then as though descended from the ceiling, Bootsy Collins came on over the intercom system, and the rest dissolved into a fog.
UNIDENTIFIED DAUGHTER OF MO: Optimistic. There is nothing more important than human being. Like, he’s Christian, I’m Shiite, he’s Syrian Sunni. Sometimes I dress like an emperor.
BOURDAIN: Were you here at that time?
BOURDAIN: ISIS is number one?
KENO: We’re trying to find our own identity.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I’m against killing. Complicating matters and uncomfortably enough, they are probably the best- organized, best-equipped, most serious obstacle to ISIS and al Qaeda in the area. But you know, we don’t see them any more. Some people died because they cursed the president. Once the monster is defeated, you can start arguing again about other things. He was an atheist member of the Lebanese Communist Party.
HADDAD: Yesterday, I had my first TV show about sexual freedom and you cannot imagine how many doors have opened just because I dared say that girls are allowed sexuality like boys. They should come. You have been arrested in your life?
(on camera): So when you roll into some religiously conservative villages on the bikes and leather jackets, what is the reaction?
BOURDAIN (voice-over): Recently Hezbollah has become heavily involved in the war in Syria, in defense of the Assad regime.
BOURDAIN: Fried. I really love this place with all of my heart. Yes, I think it is.
SHORT: I will take it up in arms, and I will fight. Grape leaves are my favorite.
BOURDAIN (voice-over): I seem to remember mom at some point pulling out some kind of automatic weapon. His family bought this to protect from the rats. Who is this man?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: My mom, she made some here. And we don’t want to add more problems for those people.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Most probably die, on the way or, for some people get arrested or be taken to the army.
UNIDENTIFIED NEWS CORRESPONDENT: A quarter of Lebanon’s population is now Syrian. The Jews would be there. It is an incongruous mix. Stuffed grape, please. Everywhere, you see posters representing a full menu of political factions and affiliations from Assad loyalists to the PLO to every flavor of extremist. Now what do they say? Now we say, Israel, ha, ha.
BOURDAIN: Do your friends feel the same way?
UNIDENTIFIED SECURITY SPECIALIST: Oh.
BOURDAIN: He is trying to hurt us. You get used to it.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Most of the villages in eastern Lebanon, they are Christian and they are Sunni.
SHORT: I think so, too.
DOUBLE A: That’s the glue that binds us. ISIS in Syria threatening to expand its so- called caliphate into Lebanon. This is (SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE), minced meat, baked, green and red pepper and chick peas and tomato and tomato paste. You know? We don’t even mention that when we’re on stage.
They were concerned about us filming here and wanted us to understand clearly that the cafe has no political affiliation and that the opinions of this young lady, Lawan (ph), are not that of the cafe or even that of the clientele. I really did.
UNIDENTIFIED ENGLISH TEACHER: This is military area.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Radio Beirut, live and direct.
This is gusta (ph).
We come here a lot. She is regularly threatened with rape, stoning and murder. In Damascus, I was always afraid of the government.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: This area was central during the civil war.
UNIDENTIFIED SECURITY SPECIALIST: And he never get upset from us.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Yeah.
I was in Beirut in 2006. It is amazing that it persists.
BOURDAIN: They are dangerous.
SHORT: Vodka. Three hours later, we decided to leave, so we came to Beirut.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I was alive.
BOURDAIN (voice-over): Later after joining and then leaving the Lebanese army, Michel Leftiarus (ph) formed the NRU, an armed revolutionary group. They are against everything — like everything on the earth they are against.
BOURDAIN: By all means, yes, please.
BOURDAIN: Yeah. Aired 9-10p ET
UNIDENTIFIED SECURITY SPECIALIST: Of course, somebody on Friday go to pray, somebody on Sunday go to pray. Here everybody support Hezbollah, even the people who are not religious for one reason, for one reason, because they feel protected by them. And I screamed in the streets, cursing all of the politicians and everything.
LEFTIARUS (ph): In Arabic we say (SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE).
BOURDAIN: So what’s it look like now?
HADDAD: You’re not wrong to love it. He works construction. He said, I don’t watch CNN.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: So far, I don’t think so.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Hey, hey.
BOURDAIN: That you’re aware of. And as you said, the real fear is that violence crosses the border now spilling into an already fragile area. And this, the Marine barracks at Beirut’s airport.
UNIDENTIFIED SECURITY SPECIALIST: Yes. It’s good to be back.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Yes.
Please help yourself.
SHORT: Let’s have cheers.
BOURDAIN: They have the worst neighbor problems in the world.
UNIDENTIFIED SECURITY SPECIALIST: Oh.
BOURDAIN: Vodka. I like this. How is that? Why? What’s so special about it? Why?
BOURDAIN: Over and over and over again. We can feel it every day. We are very happy.
RAMSEY SHORT, BRITISH-LEBANESE RESIDENT & MEMBER, LEBANESE CHAPTER, HARLEY DAVIDSON GROUP: This is very similar to that place we went to years ago.
BOURDAIN: You get used to it.
BOURDAIN: Close to two million people from Syria alone?
SHORT: I don’t know what, I’m not sure.
KENO: Geographically, Beirut is so tiny.
BOURDAIN: I know.
HADDAD: yes, with yogurt sauce and cranberries. Although we do judge –
LEFTIARUS (ph): Yes.
KENO (ph): Yeah, this is radio Beirut.
UNIDENTIFIED NEWS CORRESPONDENT: The aftermath of Beirut and some of the flashes that took place. They wait for nothing. We belong to nowhere. I love living on the tip of a volcano, but there has to be some point where I can breathe and relax.
BOURDAIN: I wouldn’t throw stones at people on Harleys. Are you concerned or optimistic?
BOURDAIN: Who needs culture?
[21:25:26] BOURDAIN (voice-over): Afternoon in Beirut and the Hafaz (ph) family, like many others across the city, prepares dinner. They are well funded. I wouldn’t advise them to stay more than a month, though.
BOURDAIN: Hezbollah means the party of God.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Yeah, we will fight these people.
BOURDAIN: What’s the most important thing happening in the world right now that needs to be resolved for things to be better?
[21:40:21] BOURDAIN: Should people come here?
LEFTIARUS (ph): Hopefully. We don’t care.
UNIDENTIFIED GIRL: (SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE)
UNIDENTIFIED DAUGHTER OF MO: There is no place better than Lebanon. We have a Jewish neighborhood here. But, unfortunately, we cannot generalize this and say that Beirut is a place where sexual expression is encouraged.
[21:16:24] BOURDAIN (voice-over): Once known as the “Paris of the Middle East,” Beirut still clings to its glamorous 1960s image, a chic tourist destination where you could famously ski and go to the beach all in the same day.
BOURDAIN: I’m not.
PATON WALSH: Most of the groups are more terrified of those crazy Islamist radicals across the border in Syria than they ever have been of each other. This is someone that I know in Beirut.
BOURDAIN (voice-over): What better way for capitalists, imperial pig dogs like Ramsey and myself to spend the last evening in Beirut, then Abu Elli (ph).
UNIDENTIFIED SECURITY SPECIALIST: Tension is a little bit high but the people, we are very happy. That’s part bad infrastructure and but also just the sheer demand on resources. Not all.
DOUBLE A: They are.
KENO (ph): Monday is hip hop at radio Beirut.
Back to Beirut. Nashan (ph) was an English teacher. BOURDAIN: The fact that Lebanon and Beirut, in particular, works at
BOURDAIN: Oh, wow, that’s not good. That’s not the first time it happened. This feels very formal.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: So many have been in the same place over and over.
UNIDENTIFIED NEWS CORRESPONDENT: Beirut struggles to put a lid on the simmering sectarian tensions. He wants to make the best food for you.
So I go there and I dress like an emperor. This person who I’m going to kill, a car bomb or whatever, does he have family?
JOUMANA HADDAD, POET & CULTURE EDITOR, AN NAHAR: Yeah.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: It is a Cuban cigar. I ended up in a torture room.
BOURDAIN (voice-over): And after a more than a few indigenous beverages –
BOURDAIN: A Communist-themed bar located in a housing block.
BOURDAIN (on camera): Gusta (ph)?
It is all right, nobody is going to come to arrest you. That’s nothing. I don’t like this.
BOURDAIN: Yeah, yeah.
PATON WALSH: It’s just loads of people, people with nowhere to go. The country simply can’t take any more.
BOURDAIN (on camera): Yeah. They wait for the hand of God.
LEFTIARUS (ph): I think that I was made to be a musician but when war happened, I took a gun. We don’t want to be like our ancestors fighting each other. They expand outside of their houses.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: We always eat here.
BOURDAIN: We came here and we had two perfect days and then the war broke out. Back in Beirut, after all these year years.
[21:55:55: PATON WALSH: Shocking bombing in Lebanon. Just pass by them. And now, by some estimates, as many as two million Syrians, all living and somehow getting along, kind of, in a country the size of Connecticut.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: I am relaxed. We talk about our visa issues most of the time.
I don’t want to seem like I’m only criticizing because I really also, as much as I hate this place, I love it as well.
THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT.
BOURDAIN: Right, for whom Beirut is a relatively liberal wonderland, compared to Riyad, for instance.
MICHEL LEFTIARUS (ph), FOUNDER, NRU REVOLUTIONARY GROUP & FOUNDER, BEIRUT MUSIC HALL & SINGER, MUSICIAN: I often go to Benari (ph) events and I asked them there to call me “Your Highness.” I love it. This is the only reason, just to protect my children and my wife. We are back in the Hiz House (ph). We pretend to be a democracy.
UNIDENTIFIED DAUGHTER OF MO: Yeah.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: (SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE)
that area. All of these religious groups have different interests. And this is one of their traditions.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Lots of people were alive, too. You have everything. It means the third one succeeds.
BOURDAIN: It’s delicious.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Before Hezbollah, Lebanese were always scared Israel. They are a Shia military political organization lavishly supported by Iran.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I have two sisters I lost.
(on camera): A little oil in the middle, as I recall, yes?
BOURDAIN: A young militant, an activist, a labor organizer.
BOURDAIN: My host’s support for Hezbollah, typical of Diahad (ph) neighborhood in south Beirut, is staunch.
CNN changed their slogan from this is CNN to at least it’s not FOX News.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Yeah.
UNIDENTIFIED NEWS CORRESPONDENT: All of it, the peoples’ fears, the violence since the beginning.
BOURDAIN: The sheer volume of fire that was poured into some of these buildings is absolutely unbelievable. We bring the fish and we have fish. Imagine the situation here.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: All this food, you see, my son wants to go Burger King.
PATON WALSH: It’s one of the mixed refugee areas that Beirut has. Oh, look at that. You don’t want to get involved in any problem.
BOURDAIN: It is a democracy here. We don’t know how to go, where to go, to go back to Syria. I mean, the worst possible situation.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Yeah.
BOURDAIN: You were alive?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: (SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE).
SHORT: Cheers. It’s raining today.
HADDAD: We don’t have a president.
NICK PATON WALSH, CNN SENIOR INTERNATIONAL CORRESPONDENT: This country has been absorbing refugees for nearly two year snow. And I know that it’s also very precious to have such a kind of freedom in a place in the Arab world like Beirut.
BOURDAIN (voice-over): Straining under the weight of all of these unasked-for guests, the Lebanese government has begun making it very difficult for them. Sectarian problems. And this is (SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE), which is raw meat, lamb, fresh mint, green onion, mixed it all together.
SHORT: Ernest is the son of the owner of this bar.
BOURDAIN: This is my third time. Beirut. The rhetoric on both sides is a fevered pitch right now.
BOURDAIN: But it’s not, so please relax. BOURDAIN: Mo is a local security specialist on assignment to keep, well, me and my crew safe from harm.
SHORT: Now we are talking. UNIDENTIFIED NEWS CORRESPONDENT: This blast has set off a tide of
BOURDAIN: Here, block by block, you see the scars from the 15-year civil war that only ended in the ’90s.
BOURDAIN: 20 years, 30 years?
BOURDAIN (voice-over): This cafe is a typical Beirut establishment with a clientele from Lebanon, from Syria and any number of other countries. But what can we do? We live here in this town.
UNIDENTIFIED SECURITY SPECIALIST: You have been here before?
[21:37:48] BOURDAIN (on camera): The last two times I’ve been here, there is just this never-ending building boom. You have choice to sit down.
BOURDAIN: How is it possible that this mix of religions and cultures?
[21:50:13] BOURDAIN: What do you think? Will they renew your visa?
BOURDAIN (on camera): No, can do?
And I told him, but he is a cool guy. They go to the same restaurant and have the same food.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Let me tell you about it.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: This is sweet potato.
BOURDAIN: The Mediterranean Sea itself trembles. It is unbelievable.
UNIDENTIFIED ENGLISH TEACHER: I came from Syria after the civil war started. I mean, a lot of people are aware, in which it’s a traditional riming scheme where they speak about their problems. When you grew up, there was order?
BOURDAIN (voice-over): Syrian-Filipino rapper, Keno.
UNIDENTIFIED CNN CORRESPONDENT: It is the deadliest Hezbollah attack against Israeli forces since the two sides went to war in 2006.
You are trying to kill us, man. They come with sexy ladies. Very good fish. The first time I was here did not end well.
BOURDAIN: No freedom, but order. Otherwise, he will be homeless.
PATON WALSH: Here now it’s the opposite, right?
BOURDAIN: We’ll follow you. They are devils. The ground shakes beneath the wheels of our heavy metal thunder.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Yeah.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Yeah, it is.
(on camera): I fell in love with this city. I go with my family. That is the equivalent of the U.S.
[21:48:31] UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Hello.
BOURDAIN (on camera): Do you know of any other place in the region where all of these groups are co-existing within a confined space?
They have the same traditions. It’s been almost — going to be a year now that we are without one. Look at this. They are mostly musicians and artsy people.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I notice this every time someone visiting the city, they just point at that. Everything great and all the world’s ills all in one glorious, messed up, magical, maddening, magnificent city. Everybody should see how complicated and deeply troubled and, yet, at the same time, beautiful and awesome the world can be. My dad knew he couldn’t protect us because he was old. This is the way I live all my life. Would you go back to that?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: For me?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: All the people. This neighborhood was hit very hard. The United States officially designates them a terrorist organization. It is expensive. It consists of many kinds of vegetables, seven kinds of fruit.
BOURDAIN: You have never been able to yell out loud, and you have never been able to do the things that you could do right now, you would go back?
(on camera): You were arrested?
Aired June 21, 2015 – 21:00 ET
UNIDENTIFIED SECURITY SPECIALIST: We looked like we are two months before 2006.
LEFTIARUS (ph): I think that culture can save the world. Lots of jamming here and it’s like we’re a family hanging out. This is your traditional chicken sandwich.
[21:30:00] WOLF BLITZER, CNN ANCHOR: As Israel buries its dead from a surprise Hezbollah missile strike, the radical Shiite group celebrates a victory. This is Syria. It is the kind of rotten cheese. taking in 83 million Syrians. Even though they are not inside Beirut yet, we can feel the threat. I hate war.
BOURDAIN (voice-over): Extraordinary spread of food.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Yeah.
HADDAD: Compared to Riyad, yes. Someone who had looks, someone to listen to beautiful music cannot become an animal again.
BOURDAIN: What happens if you go back to Syria?
BOURDAIN: Your friends are less optimistic?
DOUBLE A, THE PREACHERMAN, RAPPER: Yeah, yeah, yeah. Once we were pelted with rice, like they thought we were with a wedding or something really nice, and the other extreme was stones like at the wheels, like just get out of here. Hezbollah take care of them.
LEFTIARUS (ph): Yes, many times. We have no place in this universe. He lives with his daughter, Bushra (ph), and family in Rost (ph), Beirut, a mixed neighborhood of Christians, Muslims and Jews.
The owners are both Lebanese and Syrian and acutely aware of the tricky political realities with which they must live. (SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE) is the cheese. I left Syria, and I found hope here.
BOURDAIN: My first time was 2006. They help us all the time. If there’s an exPLOsion, oh, the big dude with the beard, who is bald. It is a deep fried potato with red pepper, chili, coriander, garlic and lemon juice.
You see it in how cell phones don’t sometimes work the way they should, how people have to shift water to their own homes. SHORT: Let’s dig in. Tomorrow is sunny. He wants some chicken burger from Burger King.

BOURDAIN (voice-over): Beirut — everybody should come here.
KENO: It is CNN and everything.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: And I have been a number of places, and this the place, it is the world’s finest. It appears the Brooklyn strain has spread even to Beirut.
HADDAD: Two kinds of people, Lebanese, who are living abroad, or Arabs, especially from the gulf region. Same way a broken clock is trusted to be right twice a day. 18 religious sects recognized, more than two million Christians, over a million and a half Shiites, a million and a half Sunni, nearly 500,000 Palestinians. That many years, now, next year, I hope things are better. .
BOURDAIN: Oh, man, that is good.
We created a platform for emcees to try their skills in front of people without judgment. This is his kingdom.
BOURDAIN: Cheers. Everyone should experience, even as the clouds gather, what’s at stake, what could be lost, what’s still here, and never let that hope go. Ironic glasses, vintage clothing and neck beards.
BOURDAIN: Is it lamb?
BOURDAIN (voice-over): Her books are banned in many countries in the region.
BOURDAIN: Hip hop?

BOURDAIN (voice-over): What do we call this neighborhood? What is it?
UNIDENTIFIED SECURITY SPECIALIST: All the people who live here feel safe.
(on camera): And yet, who you are, your life now is music and culture?
BOURDAIN: Who is buying these apartments? Who are they four?
HADDAD: Fully functioning.
(voice-over): In Syria, Mr.
BOURDAIN: Well, we should drink it and not try to figure it out. I understood that I could not face someone who was attacking my house with a guitar. 299 United States and French servicemen were killed.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Oh, it is really, really different. We talk about Syria. Nobody seems to be moving in but the buildings are going up.
BOURDAIN: If you were the emperor of the world, hypothetically. Walking the Cornich (ph), it’s easy to forget, for a moment anyway, what’s going on not far from here.
BOURDAIN: There have been two attempts on your life, yes?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: I called my dad.
KENO: I’m from a background where you have governments that are dictators and we can’t really voice anything.
BOURDAIN: What is it about hip hop?
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: (SPEAKING FOREIGN LANGUAGE)
BOURDAIN (voice-over): I am not a geo political expert, and as much time as I have spent in this part of the world, I spent nowhere near the amount of time this guy has, Nick Paton Walsh, CNN senior international correspondent. It is called the seven countries.
We have every night up to 15 acts, each act coming from a different culture. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.
(on camera): You are born and bred in Syria?
BOURDAIN: Lebanese free-style legend, Hussein, aka, Double A, the Preacherman.
BOURDAIN: Oh, thank you.
BOURDAIN: I saw you went for that first.
BOURDAIN: That’s a hell of a lot to be absorbed by a tiny little nation of, what, 4.5 million.
HADDAD: Don’t you think that the main reason behind you seeing this as a thrilling, exciting place to live in is that you’re a visitor and not someone who actually lives here?
BOURDAIN: — enter Ernesto. I was born and brought up in Syria, Damascus. I love it here. UNIDENTIFIED MALE: If Hezbollah wasn’t there, it was Christian in

UNIDENTIFIED DAUGHTER OF MO: Not really. Beautiful, fantastic.
[21:00:00] ANTHONY BOURDAIN, CNN HOST (voice-over): There’s no place else even remotely like it. And whatever else they may be, they are not stupid.
BOURDAIN: Clearly. In spite of everything, I love it here.
PATON WALSH: The exchange for Shia for two Palestinian brothers who were shot.
BOURDAIN: Is all of the chaos and the violence worth it for change? Is it worth dying for? I mean, things were, there was order. You have got mountains, the sea, and we’re surrounded, and there are so many factions that you have to deal with everybody.
BOURDAIN: For you?
CNN has become the most trusted name in news. So I don’t know when the third one will be.
UNIDENTIFIED ENGLISH TEACHER: Suppose that there is authority to collect us to throw us away to Syria, what will we do? We have no area in the world. These children need medical operation but this family can’t pay for those operations.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: They’ve come to deliver us.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: Lots of people come here.
UNIDENTIFIED ENGLISH TEACHER: Here in Lebanon, even if you were a doctor or a lawyer or a teacher, you can’t work, only in the camp.
UNIDENTIFIED ENGLISH TEACHER: He doesn’t work because he doesn’t have an official resident so he can’t leave the camp.
BOURDAIN: That’ll work.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: And over.
UNIDENTIFIED FEMALE: They send you back to Syria. Please put it down now.
BOURDAIN: Thank you.
I missed this country.
UNIDENTIFIED MALE: Number one.
BOURDAIN: Hi. Radio Beirut is like a really awesome place where there is live bands playing all week long. They will enjoy it as much as you have

If you hit all of those many numbers the payoff can be astounding. If youre looking for Keno tips that will help you try to win that once in a lifetime fortune you should also play more spots on each card. In other words, never gamble with money that you will need now, or may need in the near future, to pay for your financial commitments and everyday living expenses.
2. If youre interested in playing Keno for a longer period of time select a large number of spots on the card. Other players choose numbers that have come up recently, apparently believing there may be something irregular about the selection process that actually favors those numbers.
10. Another strategy frequently found among regular Keno players is to decide on a list of numbers and then play those same numbers continuously over a number of games. The number one rule for gambling, and the most important of all Keno tips is to never gamble with dear money; only gamble with excess money. For example, playing 14 spots your odds of hitting all 14 numbers are about 1 in 389 million.
4. If you want good odds to win more than you wager, the best tip anyone can give you is to play almost any other casino game than Keno. Payouts at live casinos range from about 60% to 70%; probably the worst payout percentage in the house. But the odds of it happening are astronomical. The Keno game offers some of the worst odds in any casino, to the point that the game is virtually guaranteed to be, at best, a slow way to lose all of your money.
8. There is no rational justification for this strategy although a casual observance of actual drawn numbers may seem to somehow justify the logic.
1. Payout percentages at most online Keno games are significantly higher.
9. There are no strategies that can help you improve your odds of winning at Keno because all of the numbers are selected randomly so no number is ever more likely to come up than another number. While most payouts and selection choices are similar, if not identical, it is possible to locate sites, including online sites, that offer better payouts or more play options in an effort to attract more players.
3. 6. The theory here is that those numbers must soon start hitting in order to bring their occurrence up to expected levels over the long run. . Tips for Keno should, therefore, be limited to such issues as money management. Some players believe that one of the best Keno tips is to start playing numbers that havent come up recently in previous games. If you want a better chance to win at Keno spend your time with an online game rather than a live casino game. For some addicted players playing the same numbers may continue not just for hours but sometimes for days and weeks on end.
If youre looking for Keno tips that will increase your chances for winning money at this popular casino game, Im afraid youre out of luck already. One of the most popular Keno tips is to pick consecutive numbers, such as 28 and 29 or 33, 34 and 35. This way youre more likely to win at least something on each card, even though youll still be losing money in the long run.
7. If youre a serious Keno player you should always compare various Keno sites before settling down to play. For those interested in the game, however, some of the more popular keno tips may be of interest.

The House and Senate have both voted in favor of proposals that would permit Indiana’s riverboats casinos to move onto land, but the Senate version wouldn’t allow live dealers to replace current electronic games at the horse track casinos until 2021.
House members in February endorsed the live dealers provision despite the apparent opposition of Gov. Tom Dermody of LaPorte says he’s hopeful a good compromise can still be reached.

Yes, women’s wrestling, (also known as female wrestling or girl’s wrestling) like other contact sports, is physically demanding and mentally challenging. But there are also car fetishes, book fetishes– you name it there is a fetish for it.
Page 1 of 2 :: First | Last :: Prev | 1 2 | Next
Women’s Wrestling Offers Stress Relief And again, stress relief! Go pound around on the mat, take some bumps, take someone down or be taken down, wrestle with all your strength, not thinking about anything else, except how to over-power or out-maneuver your opponent, and when it’s all said and done, you’re relaxed, calm, balanced. Might I say, yes, you’re right. Why do they love it? Well, being that I have been in the sport for over 25yrs, and having made a living from it, I think it is safe to say that I know a thing or two about it.
In all the years I’ve been wrestling, it still provides a challenge to stay at the top of my game both mentally and physically, but it’s also just plain fun!
Fitness Benefits Women’s wrestling has some great fitness benefits outside of just being great fun. And why not? Contact sports like women’s wrestling are not for everyone, but the ladies that do it, do it because the love it. Women’s wrestling helps them develop the skill and confidence to protect themselves!
Women’s wrestling is also a huge confidence builder! Not only with some of the moves, which I call fear moves, but also in knowing that you have trained up and can compete, the confidence built up in engaging in women’s wrestling is a great character builder. You don’t need pills, video games, or TV. It keeps you in excellent shape! Great muscle tone and great cardio! Plus, in this stressful world, it is a wonderful stress reliever! So why not women’s wrestling? Let’s just touch on a few items on health.. The body awareness you acquire is tremendous and carries over into all walks of life and all other sports. The benefits of these bumps are stronger, denser bones, which we all know that women need, especially as they get older.
Women’s Wrestling Offers Self Defense And may I also mention self-defense! Lots of women are timid by nature, and that is a beautiful thing, but that can leave them wide open and venerable. Just learning some of the moves is a wonderful confidence builder, knowing that you can take care of yourself and that you have excellent body awareness.
Women’s Wrestling Offers Fetishes I know you might be thinking – Oh, women’s wrestling is a fetish. Just what comes natural to all of us, like kids– just wrestle! It’s super fun and aren’t we all just kids anyway?
Women’s Wrestling? That’s right. The women that indulge in it are smart, competitive, creative and physical gals that love engaging in the challenges that women’s wrestling offers.
Women’s Wrestling Body Awareness And Confidence.
Women’s Wrestling Provides Stronger Bones In Pro Women’s Wrestling, we constantly take what we call “bumps,” or falls to the canvas

All you need is a binder, a scrapbook, or a photo album, and paper to write or print out recipes on (either regular or decorative paper), and plastic page protector sheets. A few gift basket themes: Movie Night, Coffee or Tea Break, Spa Day, Gardening, Writer’s Basket, Sports, Baking, Breakfast, Ice Cream Sundae Party, Fruit, Beach, Aromatherapy, Gourmet Food, Soup, Popcorn, Snack, Spicy Foods, Game Day, Book Basket, Relaxing Bath, or Candle.
Journal Jar and Journal: This is an idea that I have used once, and it is easy to make. To make it, buy a binder, dividers, protector sheets (if desired), and either print out some of the worksheets provided on the website, or type up your own. I have one myself, and I also put one together for my mother last year. You can also add photos, like in a scrapbook.
Digital Recipe File is something different that might be a good idea for a gift. It is great for keeping track of important information and events. Most of them have an envelope of folder to hold greeting cards for every month, and space to write down birthdays and other special dates.
Digital Photos: Get together all of the photos from your digital camera or computer that she would like. I think it is a good idea to come up with interesting things you can do for her (and I don’t mean Martha), and personalize the coupon book.
Household Binder/Notebook: This is another idea I got from Organizedhome.com, so feel free to check out the link to the right. In this case, you can either complete the scrapbook yourself, with recipes, photos, embellishments and captions, or you can give them what they need to craft it themselves (but maybe add a few of your own recipes, if desired, just to start the process).
Recipe Binder that you put together yourself. Bonus: The same website also has information and worksheets to print out for Christmas! I have enjoyed using my personalized Christmas Planner for the past two years, and it makes the holidays much more organized, and easier to enjoy.
Recipes: My Mom loves to cook and bake. Over the years, I got some recipes from her, and copied some down from her old cookbooks. See the Martha Stewart link below for details. Save it on a disc or usb flash drive, and give it to her to do whatever she pleases with them. Type up and/or get together recipe files you have that she would like, and compile them onto a disc or usb flash drive. I went through all of the recipes I had, browsed online, and typed up and printed out ones that I knew she would like. One gift she found very meaningful was a recipe book, full of her old recipes, as well as a few new ones. You may decorate the index cards, or leave them plain.
Recipe Scrapbook that you add recipes to. To see more information on this project, and print out the many journal prompts provided, click on the link to the right. If desired, embellish. Fill it, or leave space for her to add more later on. I bought one quite a while ago. This binder can have as many categories and pages as desired for an organized household: emergency list, phone numbers, addresses and birthdays, planner pages, household lists, finances, projects, recipes and menus, fitness, family and school, vacations.
Coupon Book: Either print out a coupon book template, or create your own. There are many fantastic things out there that can be personalized with photos.
Pre-made Recipe Book that you write photos in. Get together photos you already have, or go through your digital photos for ones you want to give to her, and have them printed to put in the scrapbook or album. During one of those fierce storms in New England, her apartment was completely flooded, and she lost everything. She can upload or print out any that she desires.. All you need for this project is a journal, a mason jar, and paper. If desired, you can write your own prompts.
The point of this gift is for the recipient to gradually take out and write the answers or responses to the prompts onto the journal, and by the time the jar is empty, the journal should be pretty full of information about her life and her views. When she is done, she can keep it for herself, or give it to a loved one who would value it.
Scrapbook or Photo Album: These are usually very cherished gifts. Photo albums can be straightforward, and scrapbooks are for those who want to be more creative with the decorative paper, embellishments and captions/journalling.
Greeting Card Organizer: For those who enjoy sending out greeting cards and keeping track of birthdays and other important dates, a greeting card organizer can be a pretty gift that will help them stay organized. It came with many decorative papers, and two different size recipe pages to write the recipes on, as well as decorative subject dividers, plastic protector sheets, and embellishments. There are many ways to go with this idea.
Gift Basket: I think gift baskets are a great way to group related gifts together in a presentable way. As a bonus, maybe include a gift card to a site or a store where she can get some of the photos printed out, or use it to buy a personalized gift with one or some of the photos. It is a great gift for someone who likes to write, or who is very reflective. They come in many sizes, from ones that fit into your pocket, to binder size.
Recipe Box, either with pretty recipe cards or index cards that you can jot recipes down in. I found this idea on the Organizedhome website. The list goes on. They can be about childhood, beliefs, traditions, family, or whatever else you think would be interesting. A journal jar can just be a simple, decorated mason jar with slips of folded paper that contain questions or writing prompts, usually of a variety of topics

Now, many start on Thanksgiving — both in brick-and-mortar stores and online — so you’re better off shopping earlier to catch the best deals. Adobe measured how often online shoppers were looking at out-of-stock items and found that Cyber Monday was the top day for people to land on out-of-stock items’ pages, suggesting that people were having a hard time buying what they were seeking.. Amazon ended up offering people $20 gift cards if their gifts were delayed. Online prices are lowest on Thanksgiving, higher on Black Friday and even higher on Cyber Monday.
Shoppers who don’t want to face the crowded stores on Thanksgiving or Black Friday but still want to get some good deals often shop online on Cyber Monday.
Most of the good deals start way before Cyber Monday. As you may recall from last year, UPS had difficulty getting packages to their destinations by Christmas. The things you want to buy are probably available in limited quantities, and a lot of things could be sold out by Monday. Amazon started its Black Friday sales a full week before Black Friday (and 10 days before Cyber Monday).
You won’t be alone if you start shopping on your phone during Thanksgiving dinner. Now you officially have an excuse to shop on your phone while your family argues.
You’re more likely to get your gifts in time for the holidays. Thanksgiving is projected to be the biggest mobile shopping day of the year, according to Adobe. Other stores, such as Best Buy, will have special online-only deals on Thanksgiving.
Amazon is taking advantage of this by creating deals that exist only for a limited time or while supplies last.
Every year, sales start earlier and earlier. Here’s why:
The deals are not as good. But the Monday after Thanksgiving is no longer the best day for online shopping.
What you want could be sold out. Your best bet for online shopping is actually Thanksgiving, according to research by Adobe. The earlier you shop, the better the chances are that your items will arrive in time for the holidays

After a season full of crazy blindsides and disloyal alliances, Tony, a New Jersey police officer, took home the million dollar prize after the jury somewhat surprisingly voted for him over martial arts instructor, Yung “Woo” Hwang. This is so fresh and it feels so good,’” Probst told Entertainment Weekly. Host Jeff Probst revealed the theme of Season 29 — and it’s a good one. (In Season 27′s “Blood vs. Water,” returning competitors battled it out against their loved ones.)
“We really listened to people saying, ‘Oh my gosh, we love new players again. Drumroll, please:. The winner of “Survivor: Cagayan” is … Tony Vlachos!
The new season premieres in September, featuring a cast of all new contestants. He (obviously) took Tony.
And although his pleas with the jury were, at times, tear-jerking, Woo ended up truly making a million dollar decision as the members of the jury revealed on the live finale reunion show that they would have given the title of sole survivor to Woo he he had taken Kass to the end.
But, the winner wasn’t the only “Survivor” news to be announced on May 21. Then, after some chit-chats on the beach, the final three battled it out at the final immunity challenge, in which Woo took home the coveted necklace, leaving him with a huge decision: take Tony to the final two and stay true to his alliance or take Kass and almost guarantee himself a check for a million dollars. Despite Tony’s cutthroat game play, the axed members of the cast decided his strategy was a step above the rest, and he was crowned the Season 28 champion. Water,’ and we started casting it, and started finding really good people, and then more good people, and then it became a very easy decision to go with a completely new cast.”
The tribe has spoken.
The finale began with Tony, Woo, Kass McQuillen and Spencer Bledsoe vying for a spot in the final three. “And we went down the road with a couple of different ways to do ‘Blood vs. After Kass made an incredible comeback in the immunity challenge, the contestants decided to send home fan favorite Spencer
