ESPN's Sam Khan Jr. later reported the date Manziel is expected to make the announcement: "Manziel is expected to make public his decision on his football-playing future Wednesday, two sources with knowledge of the player's thinking told on Tuesday."

Gil Brandt of is reporting that Manziel has already submitted his papers for inclusion in this year's draft class:

On the marketing side of things, Rovell noted how much Johnny Football admired LeBron and felt the two were in the same boat, to a certain extent. Thus Carter, James' childhood friend, would be the perfect marketing representative for Manziel:

Manziel said he befriended James when he was being investigated by the NCAA this summer for signing autographs for memorabilia brokers. Manziel told "The Dan Patrick Show" last month that the two would text each other every day during that time.

"Everyone was coming after me and there was so much criticism," Manziel said. "I feel like LeBron deals with that every single day of his life."

A source close to the negotiations over Manziel's representation told that Manziel had always admired James' off-the-court business empire. Manziel was seen sitting courtside with Carter for the team's game against the Golden State Warriors last week.

Manziel's choice of SSG isn't much of a surprise either, as it leaked back in December that Manziel would sign with the agency, per sports business reporter Darren Heitner.

The Houston-based sports agency has plenty of football expertise, as Forbes listed SSG as the 10th-most valuable NFL agency in 2013.

Perhaps SSG is best known for being Geno Smith's former agency, as the New York Jets rookie terminated his relationship with SSG shortly after the 2013 NFL draft.

As of Jan. 6, the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner was still undecided on whether he was going to forgo the final two years of…...

...Kevin Gilbert’s ‘Consultation’, each composer along with their respective text provide such profound perspectives and manufacture their representation of the Australian Aboriginal experience, in particular concepts revolving the hardships experienced by the Australian Indigenous and the necessity for equality and change. The representation manufactured by Keating’s ‘Redfern Park Address’ and Gilbert’s ‘Consultation’ orbits the hardships experienced by the Australian Indigenous population for an extended period of time. Paul Keating’s speech was an extremely iconic event in Australia’s history and was effective to an extent to convey Keating’s main message; to recognise past injustices against the Australian Indigenous population and to promote the necessity to attain equality and justice. In Keating’s ‘Redfern Park Address’, Keating utilises anaphora with the words ‘imagine if’. Keating is inviting his audience and responders to take an emotional journey and to empathise. One of Keating’s main challenges was to create empathy. By utilising anaphora plus the pathos, Keating is inviting his audience to place their feet into the shoes of the Aboriginals and attempt to experience the hardships they had experienced. Moreover, Gilbert’s ‘Consultation’ was a poem driven by a sarcastic and aggressive tone. Gilbert’s poem constructs a representation that expresses the ill treatment and lack of significance experienced by the Aboriginals. ‘Blacks gamblin’, Playin’ pups” “Life aint too...

...surfing. January 21st, 2002 is the day she has been waiting and training for the last 3 years. Katrina is going to skip school tomorrow, and head out to finally accomplish her biggest dream. Surfing the Mavericks. Early the next morning Katrina woke up grabbed her favorite board and headed out to the Mavericks. When she got to the Mavericks cliff, the waves were a lot bigger than she expected, but she doesn’t hesitant and jumps in. She starts paddling out and goes for the first wave she sees 57 ft. She gains her balance, stands up, and the rough patch of water causes her to lose her balance and she falls when she is at the crest, and black outs. She wakes up, but not at the Mavericks the sand is whiter the water is clearer, all she remembers was trying to take the drop on the biggest wave she has ever been on. She touches the water, but backs away immediately. She looks around and sees the board, and automatically feels hate towards it. She walks towards it and kicks it as hard as she can, pain shoots up her leg, but the board doesn’t have a scratch on it. “The board didn’t do anything to you.” She hears a voice. She turns around and sees a man, she has seen this man many times on tv. “Mark Foo” she whispers to herself. This man died trying to surf the same waves she did, The Mavericks. “Where am I?” Katrina asks, dazed and confused. Mark looks at her “You’re in Hawaii.” “Now pick up your board and we are going out there” He points to the ocean the waves start looking more......

Mavericks in Ghana (rationale behind it), the project model and deliverables, the Program management team to set up the organisation and run the project and the cost implications. The need for economic development in Sub-Saharan Africa is vital as over 40% of the population, or 300 million people, live on less than $1 a day. Africa is home to two-thirds of the world’s 48 poorest countries.[1] Mavericks in Ghana is a response to a need in the Ghanaian society of lack of gratifying employment and untapped entrepreneurial resources among graduates being churned out of the tertiary schools every day. There is a total on 46 Microfinance companies currently operating in Ghana, with a gross loan portfolio of USD, 2008 123.0 million and an average number of active borrowers as at 2008 of 364,043 and depositors as 1.0million. The average loan granted in 2008 was about $266.9 and the amount deposit in 2008 came up to $126.9 million. Although these microfinance and non governmental organizations are making giant leaps in its efforts to help eradicate poverty, there are a few observations that make the need for Mavericks in Ghana more apparent: • Most institutions target the poor who earn less than $1 a day with the aim of helping them or on short payback periods, unreasonable interest rates or applications from those willing to provide some sort of guarantee. These two extremes neglect the middle class or below middle class educated university/ college graduates who have passed through......

To Choose or Not to Choose

...To Choose or Not to Choose When I read this topic, I knew right away this was going to be my essay subject. In the world of dating, I feel very strongly about whether you should choose your own dates. I have had the experience of allowing someone to arrange a date for me, which has only solidified my feelings on the matter. Although there are some advantages in going on an arranged date, I feel the disadvantages are far greater. So when asked “to choose or not to choose?” The answer is simple; I say “choose!” In the world of dating, what I consider the “pre-date” stage is that period of time when you decide to ask someone of interest out on a date, choose the time and place, and work out the details. With a bit of luck they will agree and then with much anticipation, you wait and prepare for the event. How you initially meet a person will vary; it could be someone from your social circle, someone you meet by chance or even someone you have conversed with online. In every scenario, someone has caught your attention and you decide to put yourself “on the line” and ask them out. Not so in an arranged date. One strong advantage to the “arranged” or “blind date” is there is little to no “pre-date” effort on your part because the work is done for you by a third party. There is no chance that you may be turned down or have your pride hurt, because the date itself is a sure thing. Consequently, there is also no guarantee of any attraction on your part. You have no idea if......

The Adventures of Johnny Bunko

...Jennifer G English 1A Tiffany Higgins September 10, 2014 The Adventures of Johnny Bunko Daniel Pink presents many important lessons in The Adventures Of Johnny Bunko: The Last Career Guide You'll Ever Need, which are secrets to being successful in life. Johnny Bunko is an average guy who is unhappy and unsatisfied with the career he has. Throughout the book, Pink states many good points and talks about being persistent and how people should focus on their strengths, not their weaknesses. Although I agree with Daniel Pink when he makes the point that in order to be successful you need to be persistence; I disagree when he states that people should focus on their strengths not their weaknesses, because in order to be successful you need to first focus on your weaknesses and improve them so you wont keep repeating the same mistake throughout your career. Summary: In The Adventures of Johnny Bunko, Daniel Pink using the character of Diana, argues that in order to have persistence you need to focus on your strengths and not your weaknesses. By all means, throughout the Six Lessons in The Adventures of Johnny Bunko the First Lesson Daniel Pink through the character of Diana mentions that “There is no plan.” Johnny is always tired which makes it hard for him to concentrate, so he struggles to get his work done on time. Johnny goes to lunch with his co workers and explains to them how when he opens the chopsticks “this person” who is Diana appears with magical powers. He......

Mavericks Goods Group Project

...Proposed ERP Architecture The type of ERP Architecture for the ERP system proposed that would be utilized would be a logical architecture. There is much confusion between getting the basic information needed from the client to the owners and general managers of Mavericks Goods & Fresh Produce that a ‘simple’ logical architecture is best. This logical architecture relays data from the hardware, to an all in one database, to the core business logic (security/access), to the functional business applications needed (this includes accounting, supply chain, distribution, finance, HRM, marketing and production) and to the client user interface applications and back again. Those who utilize this ERP but work on a face-to-face basis with the customers will never see some of the tiers of the ERP architecture, but the store owners and managers will be able to relay information back and forth from one store to the next. The end goal of this ERP system will be to track hours worked by employees and implement payroll, check inventory at any of the stores at any given time in order to sell off overstocked inventory or order more, gather statistics on which items are selling best to determine whether a price increase or decrease will need to be done, and overall reducing the amount of physical time spent in each store wasted on attempting to input data into an old Microsoft Excel system. Each store will be able to communicate fluidly but the friendly ‘click of a button’ functions......

Icon Analysis: Johnny Depp

...Icon Analysis: Johnny Depp Mikael Stoffer Baker College of Owosso Icons are recognized everywhere from producer, actor, model, worker, the list could go on forever because icons are anyone who is very successful and recognized widely as a symbol. An Icon has to be someone who is admired and considered successful to not only one person, it has to be a good chunk of people who can all agree that they are considered an icon to many people. But there are few people who would be considered an icon in the invention field because so many people are inventing things nowadays. But there will always be a set of people that come to mind when thinking of those few people in such a big field of interest like inventing, Steve Jobs, Thomas Edison, Nikola Tesla, Bill Gates, the list could go on till you do not recognize anyone else. With actors there are plenty to choose from because actors can play many roles and be considered the star of the show or movie but even a side character can be considered an icon because they lifted spirits in a movie, but in most cases it is because they played so many roles. I’m going to be analyzing an actor that has so many roles he is considered to be Hollywood’s man of a thousand roles (Skillern, M.). His name is Johnny Depp, and he has played many eccentric and villainous roles that he is widely considered an icon throughout the entire acting community. Johnny Depp is the icon of Hollywood’s actors, one of the top 10 fashion icons and could be many...

Gender Representations

...are more than capable of fulfilling a ‘masculine’ duty. Expecting particularly men to fulfill such a role, it is capable of contradicting ones perception of a masculine role only suited to a man. Taking a few steps back, as mentioned previously the gender representations of this certain image is obvious as it’s a ‘masculine’ demonstration, yet we will always be unable to identify her gender. As there is no possible way of us being able to ask her personally what it may be, many may presume she is a ‘woman’ because of her face or other characters we often associate with the female sex. Either way the environment which surrounds is certain to be a ‘masculine’ one, with the influence of ones perception of a female in a war environment is influenced by the set gender roles of war itself. With a woman seen with a gun, for many is a very uncomfortable site. As the stereotypes of woman in war is the ‘nurse’ type, although in recent years the war theme is very much a mixture of ‘femininity’ and ‘masculinity’, as it hasn’t always been the case, for some its an idea not to be altered. The discussion previously, identifying how some are still not completely aware that no matter the biological sex, it’s a fact of life that one can choose to portray characteristics not aligning with their sex, thus contradicting the perception of what society has constructed with gender roes and identity. Kate Borstein once identified the first question many ask new parents and the ‘not so common’......

Johnny Songstealer

...Johnny Singstealer claims that he now owns the copyright to the “Happy Birthday To You” song for 20 years. The song was inherited from his family. He is seeking royalties from the use of the Happy Birthday Song. Bobby Bandleader says that everybody utilizes the “Happy Birthday To You” song. He has added his own “twist” in the song so it’s not the traditional song. He uses harmonizing chords, as well as, changed some of the words in the song to make it his own creativity. I am going to decide whether or not Bobby Bandleader will owe royalty payments to Johnny Singstealer simply because he uses the melody of the song and the basis of the song, HBTY. “Happy Birthday To You” is a song that is known throughout the world as the birthday song (Cold Case: The Happy Birthday Song Edition, 2011). The origination of the song was copywritten by Preston Ware Orem and R.R. Forman many years ago. They were the first to actually write out the song in which they received the copyright because of that and were estimated at $5 million dollars in 1990. The copyright isn’t due to expire until 2030, but has now been passed down to Johnny Singstealer in which he now owns the copyright. The purpose of copyright laws and royalties is to afford the copyright owner a fair return for his creative work and the copyright user a fair income under existing economic conditions (Proceedings by Copyright Royalty Judges). Bobby Bandleader has not sung the song, “Happy Birthday To You” verbatim...
