Jovan Belcher was a football linebacker and a part of the Kansas City Chiefs of the National Football League (NFL). Born and brought up in West Babylon in New York, Jovan Belcher was quite a popular and talented player. On 1st December 2012, he committed murder-suicide. After he killed his girlfriend, a twenty-two year old Kasandra Perkins, Belcher is reported to have driven to the training facility of the Chiefs where he killed himself by shooting himself in the head. There are many theories surrounding this murder-suicide, but the exact reason for his death remains unknown.

According to many reliable sources, Jovan Belcher was a very violent and emotional person. Back in the year 2006, Jovan is reported to have punched out a window in his university just because his girlfriend had made him upset. As a result of this, he sustained wrist lacerations and almost severed his thumb. Another theory for this unfortunate incident is that as a player of Chiefs, Jovan suffered from repeated head trauma, thus causing serious brain damage which made him commit murder-suicide as he might have been suffering from mental illnesses like bipolar disorder, psychosis or depression.

Reports that Jovan Belcher spent the night with another woman, called Brittni Glass, is also doing the rounds. According to his neighbors, they spotted Belcher drunk and asleep in a car outside the apartment of Glass. This gives rise to another theory that Belcher might have used some kind of performance enhancing drugs like anabolic steroids which are known to bring about severe changes in behavior and emotions, like causing impulsivity, psychosis and irritability.

5 Reasons Why Everyone Hates the Yankees

Do you hate the Yankees? If you’re not a Yankees fan, then the answer is “yes.” Let’s take a look at five reasons why most people hate the Yankees.

Reason #5 – New Yorkers

People hate New Yorkers. If you’re not sure why people hate New Yorkers, it has everything to do with arrogance. Then again, perhaps it can be called overconfidence. Have you ever been to New York – The Empire State? Everyone has their head held high – too high. New York City might be the greatest city to visit, but this goes to New Yorker’s heads a little bit too much, especially Yankees fans, who have enjoyed more World Series titles than any other team.

Reason #4 – Legacy

Baseball fans might not want to admit it, but there is no chance that any other team will ever catch the Yankees in terms of success. That particular team would need to go on an incomparable run without the Yankees doing anything during that timeframe. This is highly unlikely considering the Yankees often have the most talented players in the league.

Reason #3 – Money

Whatever happened to winning fair and square? Okay, so the Yankees might play fair on the field, but do they really play fair when it comes to management? They will go out of their way to use their power in order to land the best players – year after year. This makes it close to impossible for other teams to compete on a consistent basis. Have you realized that the Yankees are in the playoffs every single year?

Reason #2 – White Collar Team

The Yankees are all about the bright lights and the big city. Once a player arrives, he’s likely to hit the best restaurants and hottest nightclubs. While the same might be true for Red Sox players, they are perceived as a blue collar team from a blue collar city. That being the case, perception can be misleading, but it’s still a reason people hate the Yankees.

Reason #1 – Derek Jeter

You hate him or you love him. Most females love him. Most guys who aren’t Yankees fans hate him. It’s certain that he has burned their team on more than one occasion. He also has a certain swagger that can irritate any man. The debate rages on whether he is overrated or underrated. A lot depends on which team you’re rooting for. Nevertheless, Derek Jeter is the face of the Yankees and most people hate the Yankees.

Amber Tate was born in New York so naturally, she’s a Yankees fan. She loves the sport but she loves saving money more. Having an extra $300 per year in her pocket due to her affordable health insurance quote she received from Kanetix, an online insurance comparison website.

For adventure lovers and outdoor types, the Peak District Derbyshire area is a great place to experience bushcraft. With stunning scenery, dense woodlands, miles of trails and pathways, rivers to cross, and hills to climb, there are ample opportunities to hone your survival skills. An organized course is the best (and legal) way to enjoy wildcamping and bushcraft.

Bushcraft courses usually take place over a weekend, so those wanting a true Peak District experience could choose to make a holiday of it, and stay in one of many stunning Peak District cottages in the area.

Bushcraft is essentially survival skills, living in the natural environment, and using your surroundings to thrive. Used for centuries in Australia and South Africa, bushcraft has gained recent popularity in the UK with Ray Mears’ television series. Wildcamping is technically illegal in England, so bushcraft, camping and survival courses are great ways to experience the outdoors without the trappings of a conventional campsite.

There are now plenty of places to enjoy bushcraft experiences in the Peak District area. Organized outdoor adventures, led by qualified guides and instructors can be incredible learning experiences for the whole family. A weekend experience is a great way to begin your bushcraft adventure – learning basic survival skills such as: shelter building, tracking, firecraft, fishing and foraging. For die-hard adventure lovers, why not combine your bushcraft experience with some of the Peak District’s many extreme sports, such as rafting, mountain biking, climbing and abseiling!

Bushcraft weekends are perfect for the outdoor loving family, a corporate team building experience, or maybe an alternative hen or stag weekend. Head to Moorlands Bushcraft for weekend experiences on the edge of the Peak District, or to Shipley Country Park for bushcraft taster experiences. Also try Woodland Ways experiences, for a huge choice of bushcraft days, weekends and even week-long courses.
