A ‘Star Trek’ Fan Group Is Handing Out Scholarships To The Most Hardcore Trekkers

UPROXX

Any student or disgruntled parent can vouch that paying for school is incredibly difficult and agonizing. However, if you are a Star Trek fan (commonly referred to as a “Trekker” or “Trekkie”), there is a silver lining of hope. Starfleet International, which is a huge order of Trekkers, offers several yearly scholarships for fans. This means that all the mad devotion — to the adventures of those who boldly went where no one else has gone before — will pay off.

Since 1990, Starfleet International has been offering $1000 scholarships for every winner that gets selected. The scholarships are separated into five different categories, and the applications are quickly reviewed by a SFI group which will then ask a brief question about the applicant’s involvement in the Star Trek community as a Trekker. This question appears to be the most important factor into deciding who will receive the scholarship…

WWE: Blame Charlotte, Not Us!

The People's Blog

Do you remember Vince’s old attitude? How it was all about having brass balls? Basically, he ran these two shows that did whatever he wanted? There were matches against God (wow, I know), bra-and-panty matches…some in mud, that’s always fun! There were raids against neighboring territories, a crazy old man on commentary that had such an obsession with ‘puppies’ that he should have gone with David Duchovny for sex-rehabilitation.

Or you know, probably should have had charges filed against him.

Still, WWE has been known as always pushing and raising the bar, and were they ever apologetic?

Nah. They stuck to what they did.

You don’t want to see God in a match? Well, too bad, take your hurt feelings elsewhere because it’s about to get holy up in here. Didn’t like seeing a casket holding Big Show’s father in it? Eh, that’s minor! We here at WWE laugh at…

Holm to Rousey after bout: ‘None of us would be here without you’

Smirfitts Speech

Amid the greatest moment of her professional career, Holly Holm managed to stay humble.

Moments after authoring one of the most shocking upsets in the sport’s history, Holm took the time to comfort her vanquished foe, thanking Ronda Rousey for everything she’s done for women’s MMA.

“I just said, ‘You know I really admire you for being such a great, dominant champion,'” Holm told Larry King on Thursday, according to MMAFighting.com. “‘None of us would be here without you, so I appreciate you.'”

Much was made of Holm’s steadfast humility in the face of Rousey’s bombast, with many observers relishing in Rousey’s championship demise after she failed to touch gloves during the pre-fight instructions.

“I think she’s done great for the sport, because she’s so passionate about what she does and carries this confidence about her,” Holm said when asked whether or not she thought Rousey was a poor…
