Have you seen those spam comments in the YouTube videos about jumping higher? Guy is talking about some mysterious Nobolaron Manual which should help you to increase your vertical but it turns out he is promoting the same good old Jump Manual by Jacob Hiller.
At first I though this was legit and maybe some new jumping program hit the market but as I said only some spammer came up with the new technique to trick the people. If you see the same comments – report them as spam.
Recently some kind of bug on nba.com site started to ask for user name and password. It says “A username and password are being requested by http://www.nba.com. The site says: “ESI Test””
How to remove this annoying message? You can get away with that message clicking cancel couple of times, but this becomes annoying after some time if you watch more than 1 video. Then I tried to view videos while logged on but this didn’t change anything. Messages still pop out for user name and password.
Now it gets interesting, if you type any characters into this pop up box and you have Roboform installed (it’s password management addon for Firefox), the name for a new passcard is called Questionmarket. After little Googling I found that Questionmarket is some survey service but reputation of this company is questionable. There were few pages with info how to remove Questionmarket from your computer. It suggests that some kind of spyware and malware is involved. Visitors of nba.com complains in the comments about this issue but this problem lasts for more than a week now.

Amare Stoudemire at young age playing basketball. Highlights from high school. Welcome to dunk and block party!
Do you know that your perception of distance can be altered by how much you want the goal to be achieved? In one psychology blog I found an article called Motivated reality which explains the bag throwing experiment.
A group of people are throwing bags from a distance as close to gift voucher (target) as possible. Those who know they will get money (have the desire to get money) are throwing bags closer than the target. Those who think it’s just a game throw bags further than gift voucher.
This psychology experiment concludes that our perception of reality could be directly influenced by our desires. Read the rest of this entry »

Spain found new basketball extreme, Bienvenue Letuni a 15-year-old giant from Democratic Republic of Congo. Bienvenue Letuni already stands at 2.24m (7 ft 4) and is expected to grow even more if his gigantism wouldn’t be treated. He performed some tests for ACB’s Joventut and Baskonia teams and soon will accept offer to train at one or another. Bienvenue Letuni seems to have coordination problems and very weak overall body. If he wants to become a great basketball player he would have to train really hard because now he barely can jump. On the other hand, who needs the vertical jump when you can grab the rim while standing.
Next Manute Bol or another no name in the world of basketball? Bienvenue Letuni will show his real potencial some few years later.
