Two reports of people involved permanent vision loss because they were hit in the eye by the door anchor ball. The extent of the injury to the third victim is unknown, according to Target. .

To remedy the problem, Target will be providing instructions on how to properly repair the resistance cords so that they are safe to use again. Consumers are instructed to stop using the resistance band products until they are able to complete the necessary repair.

(Best Syndication News) - The Los Angeles Dodgers have filed for chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, which will allow the baseball team owners to deal with immediate finances. In a statement, Dodger owner, Frank McCourt, mentioned Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig as the reason the team had to file for chapter 11.

Selig did not approve a media transaction between the Los Angeles Dodgers and FOX network, which was a multibillion-dollar media rights transaction. If the MLB Commissioner approved of this, the Dodgers would have had access to hundreds of millions of dollars. The office of the MLB Commissioner rejected the proposed deal. The Dodgers have been trying for almost a year to get Selig to approve the media deal.

(Best Syndication News) - Travis Pastrana along with Cam Sinclair accomplished a synchronized double back flip motorcyle stunt at the Nitro Circus Live event held at the MGM Grand Arena in Las Vegas on June 4. The dual stunt is a new first for Freestyle Motorcross (FMX). Wheelchair bound Aaron 'Wheelz' Fotheringham completed a 50 foot jump and did a flip to land without a hitch. The one night only show was the debut of the Nitro Circus Live, which is a show of stunts with BMX, FMX, skateboarders, motorcycles, and more. The tour is based on the reality MTV show ‘Nitro Circus.’

Travis Pastrana asked his girlfriend Lyn-Z Adams Hawkins in front of the crowd. He was planning to ask her at the end of the show, but he was so nervous that he could not wait.

Cam Sinclair, who had almost lost his life to a double back flip, had an amazing comeback and won the X Games FMX biggest trick in 2010 for the same stunt. This time he and Pastrana succeeded in the dual synchronized double back flip for the Las Vegas event.
