(Best Syndication News) - The TLC channel has a popular new TV show called ‘Extreme Couponing.’ While the show is exciting to watch, some veteran couponers are saying that some of the tactics used are not following the rules set forth by the coupons or the grocery stores. If you do not follow the terms of the coupon usage, you could be committing fraud.

Honest mistakes can happen when using coupons and this might have happened with some of the shoppers featured on the TV show. TLC’s website has a blog with the shoppers on the show being featured. Some people commented on the blog that they shop at the grocery store featured on the TV show and they have limits on the amount of coupons you can use, but these rules didn't seem to apply to the TV show's featured shopper.

Harold Camping declares the End of the World starts on May 21, 2011

(Best Syndication News) - Harold Camping the 89-year-old founder of the Family Broadcast Network has been declaring the date, May 21, 2011, as Judgment Day. The day of the rapture is May 21, 2011 with the complete end of history on Earth being five months later. The rapture is when the Heavenly God gathers up his people before the final days.

Camping had written a book called “1994?” which he thought possibly could be the end but also suggested the year 2011. The reason he gives for the wrong prediction in 1994 was that he was still studying the Bible and did not have a definitive date, that is until now. Camping said that the Bible points to May 21, 2011 without a doubt.
