A look back at the 'Fight of the Century'!

Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Manny Pacquiao on May 3rd, 2015

Two years have passed since "the Fight of the Century" (or "the Battle for Greatness") in which the American boxer Floyd Mayweather faced his Filipino counterpart Manny Pacquiao, widely considered two of the greatest fighters in history. At the Grand Garden arena in Las Vegas, the matchup took place on Sunday, May 3 2015, lasting for 12 rounds. The judges decided to give the win to the American boxer with a small margin on points. With this victory, Mayweather maintained his clean record of winning - 48 fights unbeaten. Pacquiao slipped to 57 victories from 65 matches. In his first statement after the match, Pacquiao commented: "I thought I was the winner, I was shocked by the score, he took more punches from me than i did! ".

Mayweather relied on his defensive style and quick punches to control the course of the 12 round encounter. and he  obtained the unanimous opinion of the three judges, 116-112 on two cards, 118-110 on the other. The judges agreed on 10 of the 12 rounds.
The match will remain in the memory due to the high financial value that Mayweather received. Up to 120 million dollars. there was never a battle in the history of the "Noble Art" with such interest, waiting and financial value. Where negotiations had been raging for five years until the best boxers of their generation agreed to the "Fight of The Century", revenue reached approximately 400 million dollars, which has never happened in boxing nor in any other sport. 

Mayweather describes himself as "the best boxer in history" Without diminishing respect for the myth "Muhammad Ali". "Ali was a legend," said Mayweather, "I respect him very much and other former champions. but I devoted all my life to this sport. i think i gave more to boxing than Mohammed Ali did. without diminishing his respect ".  "Mohammed Ali did not score world titles in different weights like me," said Mayweather. "At the age of thirty-eight I am still at the top of my level. I am the best in this profession. I know I will be criticized for what I'm saying. But I do not care about that ".  "No one can convince me that Sugar Ray Robinson and Mohammed Ali were better than me," Mayweather said. "No one can wash my brain to say that ... But I will do something" 

Mayweather confirmed after winning, that he would retire after his next fight in September 2015, and said: "I will play that game and I will stop." 

Thanks for reading :) Greetings and have a good day! ^_^ peace.

Life is sweet in the Jelly Bean Factory!

Satisfy your sweet tooth in this candy paradise!

It's alive!It's alive!

Well, that's a nice turn of events. It looks like we just landed in a Jelly Bean Factory. Like, literally woke up and...we were there. We're not complaining, mind.

So what do we have to do here? It seems like the machines are working on their own. But we're guessing someone must at least be required to make sure that they have fresh supplies. First up, we need to make sure that we get the different flavours from the Food Replicator. At the same time we need water and sugar to make a sweet puree that we can divvy into little pieces. The fruit we got from the replicator have to be put into the Squeezer to make a nice rainbow juice to dye our puree pieces.

We then dip the puree pieces into the juice and end up with colourful Jelly Beans that have to be baked in the oven! The oven will give you the Jelly Beans that can then be put in the Baby Bottle Storage. All the different machines will give us magical Veevees. These little creatures make the whole factory work. Collect them and bring the Jelly Bean tree to life!

So yeah. All makes perfect sense, doesn't it? Veevees and stuff.

Good luck Smeeters!

HOW GOSSIP AFFECTS OTHERS

Google defines the word gossip:  “a casual or unconstrained conversation or reports about other peoples, typically involving details that are not confirmed as being true.”

When we engage in gossip:   we are spreading rumors about others which may not be true.  People engage in gossip for many reasons:    The prime ones are:  anger, jealousy, envy.  These  bad mouthing individuals think in their minds that if they start telling others bad things about a certain individual that they will win them over.  Some people gossip about others thinking that if they criticize, judge and speak ill of a particular individual, they will in their  “demented” minds think others will respect and honor them instead.  However, this is always NOT what happens instead of being  able to use this type of strategy to win others respect and appreciation, it will always back fire on them.   (Excerpts from:  Taming the Mind, by:  Thubten Chodron.

I am writing this article because I, personally, received a message/chat from a total stranger on Smeet in a publc room recently, regarding one of my very close friends and I was just appalled at how this stranger continued to talk about my friend in such a cruel and defaming way.  I asked him to please stop sending me messages about my good friend whom I have known for over 3 years and when I told him that he got so angry,  he started calling me names such as:  oh, you are a stupid lady.  At that point, I wanted to block him due to the fact, he continued to send me messages bad mouthing a close friend of mine out of pure jealousy.   I am sharing all this for the sole purpose to say that:  gossip of this nature can defame an individual’s good reputation and harm him/her in a very negative way.  There is no reason to send a message to a total stranger saying horrible lies about that person’s good friend.  What purpose and gain other than trying to defame my friend’s good reputation.  If this “demented” individual has spoken ill of my friend with many other people who do not know my friend,  this could really start rumors which will harm and defame the good character of my friend.  I may sound repetitious but I honestly am trying to make a very important point here.  I truly believe in the universal law which states:  what goes around comes around;  treat others the way you want to be treated, and if you can not say anything nice about someone, especially if you do not know that person, do not say anything at all.  Why add to the gossip already circulating around among others.  Whether we know or do not know the person,  it is just common sense to NOT engage in any type of gossip of others.  

With that being said, it brings me to a very important topic:  How our conduct/behaviors on Smeet affect others:  Any time we choose to behave and interact with other players on Smeet in a very negative way,  there are so many things you set into motion.  If you stop to think and analyze your bad behaviors when interacting with others in public rooms on Smeet, you will be surprised and ashamed at what your words and actions have done.  I feel that this is a very important topic for all of us to be aware of and for some of us there is a serious need to change our ways when interacting with other players on Smeet in public rooms.

These issues can only be discussed and each individual must look within themselves to see if anything seems familiar to them in their actions and/or  words to other players  which may be considered as a very negative behavior, disrespectful for others  and totally  unacceptable.  Always remember this universal law:  Treat others the way you want to be treated---- because what goes around, comes around and you will always reap what you sow.  For example, if you sow love and respect to others, it will surely return to you in such a manner that you will be so overwhelmed with happiness and love.  Think about it-- for it truly makes good sense.

I feel this is a needed topic for us to be aware of whether we are online playing Smeet in public rooms, interacting with other players or in our real lives.   If one can not treat others with respect, then something is horribly wrong within that individual(s).  I have personally on numerous occasions experienced everything I have mentioned in this article in public rooms on Smeet and it truly was NOT a very pleasant situation!   Let’s all try our best to show respect and treat others the way we want to be treated.   It is not a difficult thing to do.  Let’s all try to make Smeet the most enjoyable online game to be on – instead of one that players want to and have left the game due to very unpleasant, hurtful actions/behaviors/words that they have experienced while in public rooms online Smeet.  It all starts with us.   Always remember this type of behavior and gossip is bullying in the cyber world as well.  In today’s world, bullying is considered a crime and the negative effects upon the victim have left horrible results, even suicide.   So, let us stop bullying in our cyber world as well.   It all starts with you. 

If you see me around Smeet, please say hi and if you have any type of relationship questions, please be sure to message me in private and I will be sure to answer your question(s) in my column.

So until the next time, always love one another, keep smiling, keep dancing and meeting new people on Smeet.  God bless.    Happy Smeeting to all of you.
