From Space Travel to Pizza, Your Bitcoin Goes Fa

You can’t get much more mainstream than professional American sports. In that sense, Thursday’s news that the Sacramento Kings basketball team will let its fans use bitcoin to purchase tickets, jerseys, hot dogs and anything else from its selection of products may go down as a key moment in the digital currency’s coming of age.
But this is only the latest in a steady progression of vendors choosing to transact in bitcoin, a group that is at the vanguard of the digital currency’s bid for legitimacy.
There are now tens of thousands of merchants around the world accepting bitcoin

  • Avatar C Summer internships related to Recreation, Sport & Tourism and Communication?
    Feb 10, 2013 by C | Posted in Air Travel

    I am a senior double majoring in Communication and Recreation, Sport, and Tourism. I have had a summer internship with NBCUniversal, but want to focus more on the Recreation and Travelling aspect of my degree.

    I LOVE traveling and my dream job would be to get paid to travel or go …. I want to gain experience in the field. If anyone has any ideas or suggestions I would greatly appreciate them.

    Ideas: Wounded Warrior Project, Red Frog Events, Spartan Race, Truth.com, buzzfeed, TOMS shoes, anything non-profit as well (anything similar/related would be awesome)

    • Okay, so, you want an "internship" that sends you to some exotic locale, covers your expenses, and pays you on top of that? Congratulations, so does everyone else :-)

      Seriously though, these type of things are few and far between. There's opportunities to volunteer, op …the local language, and you'll get paid to do so, but again, you have to get there yourself and take care of yourself once you're there. Try to check with your school, perhaps they have some resources that aren't commonly known and can point you in the right direction.

      Good luck.

    I plan on majoring in corporate communications with a leisure &sports management/ parks, recreation and tourism management minor. Does this open up high paying job opportunities? What jobs can one get with this major.

    • I think this would open up higher paying jobs, but keep in mind you must also have extra curricular things other than the education majors.
