How It’s Done: Boss Rule #162: A boss doesn’t slow down his swag for anyone, not even a car door.
On this week’s season 8 premiere of So You Think You Can Dance, hip hop duo Deon Lewsa Jr. and Damon Bellmon wowed the judges with a mesmerizing dance number that won the pair a ticket to Las Vegas.
But, in what is likely a first for this or any other dance show, allegations of choreography biting soon began to spread as viewers noticed striking similarities between the routine performed by Deon & Damon, and a routine choreographed by acclaimed hip hop dancers Laurent and Larry Bourgeois, AKA Les Twins.
Watch the side-by-side comparison above and judge for yourself.

Backstreet Boys Go Vegetarian.
Just when you thought you couldn’t get anymore excited for the epic New Kids on the Block/Backstreet Boys double reunion tour, the boys go and do something like this.
Backstreet Boys heartthrob Nick Carter told Celebuzz that the band has adopted an all vegetarian diet for the duration of the tour. The guys have all been out of shape after disbanding almost a decade ago and now they are hoping a meat-free diet will help “keep their energy levels up.”
If you are/were into the NKOTB and BSB, this tour will probably melt your face off.

Child Slaves Rescued From Leather Shop.
Forty-four child laborers were rescued from a leather goods shop in New Delhi where they were forced to work in unsafe and unhealthy conditions with routine beatings.
The children, most around the age of 10, were reportedly beaten and kept in a small room at a leather shop with little ventilation. They were forced to work 16-17 hour days assembling leather handbags, purses, and shoes. Most of the children were trafficked across the country to work at the shop illegally.
The task force for the elimination of child labor conducted the raid, rescuing 44 children and arresting employers. Four employers responsible for the abuse have been taken into custody and will be prosecuted under India’s child labor laws.
The leather industry is riddled with corruption. Workers in countries like India are forced to work for just cents a day handling leather goods soaked in toxins and over 90% of tannery workers suffer from some job related disease. Not only that, leather plants are continuously dumping toxic chemicals into public waterways and spewing greenhouse gases into the atmosphere putting everyone at risk.
Manufacturing leather and leather goods is a dirty business. Most people agree that no one should be forced to work in the leather industry, especially not a 10 year old child.
‘Canadian researchers find a simple cure for cancer, but major pharmaceutical companies are not interested.
Researchers at the University of Alberta, in Edmonton, Canada have cured cancer last week, yet there is a little ripple in the news or in TV. It is a simple technique using very basic drug. The method employs dichloroacetate, which is currently used to treat metabolic disorders. So, there is no concern of side effects or about their long term effects.
This drug doesn’t require a patent, so anyone can employ it widely and cheaply compared to the costly cancer drugs produced by major pharmaceutical companies.’
