T shirt printing has become increasingly popular. Many places offer this. T shirts used to be only worn as undershirts. Now, they are worn every day by many people around the world. These shirts are given the name because of how the torso lines up with the sleeves making a T shape. These shirts are generally made out of cotton. They can have a crew, rounded, v, or any type of neck. T shirt printing is done by a process called screen printing. This is how the pictures or words are put on to the shirt. Many people want their shirts custom made. Things such as cartoon characters or company logos, and even quotes or sayings can be printed onto a shirt. You can have it more personalized by adding glitter or metallic to it. T shirt printing is a booming industry between the graphic shirts being sold everywhere and the high demand custom t shirts.
One Direction Tickets: Ticket Down Slashes Prices on One Direction Presale Tickets in East Rutherford, Chicago, Miami, Atlanta, Dallas, Houston, Toronto and Washington DC
New York, NY (PRWEB) November 26, 2013
One Direction, the English-Irish pop boy band that is based out of London, has announced a new North American tour for 2014 titled, “Where We Are.” The group made the announcement on Tuesday, November 26th, on Good Morning America. The stadium tour currently features 21 dates across Canada and the United States beginning on August 1st of 2014. More dates are expected to be added to the tour before it begins in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, at the Rogers Centre, but for now, fans can make plans to head to the closest venue to see the popular act.
One Direction released their third album this week. The group has already released two singles off the new album, “Best Song Ever” and “Story of My Life.” They are hoping to reach the success of their previous two albums. Their debut album from 2011, “Up All Night,” has sold more than 4.5 million copies worldwide including more than 1.6 million in the United States. Their second release, “Take Me Home,” was released almost exactly a year later and has seen record sales total more than 4.4 million, including more than 1.7 million in the states. Both albums reached the No. 1 spot on the Billboard 200 charts and with their popularity at all-time high, chances are great that Midnight Memories will reach the top spot as well.
The group has continued to gain popularity since their debut album. One Direction put on one of the best performances at the American Music Awards last weekend and also took home awards for “Favorite Album, Pop/Rock” and “Favorite Band, Duo/Group, Rock/Pop.” The band will soon venture to NBC as performers on Saturday Night Live and are currently featured prominently by Macy’s for their new line of fragrances. The ads feature spoofs of each member’s trademark hairstyle.
The “Where We Are” tour will travel to some of the most popular stadiums in North America including Gillette Stadium in Foxboro, Massachusetts; Edward Jones Dome in St. Louis, Missouri; Alamo Dome in San Antonio, Texas; and Sun Life Stadium in Miami, Florida. The tour is tentatively scheduled to end in Miami on October 5th.

Change the Mascots New Thanksgiving-Themed Ad to Air in Detroit and Baltimore Surrounding Holiday Football Games
Oneida Nation Homelands, NY (PRWEB) November 26, 2013
The Oneida Indian Nation today launched a new Thanksgiving-themed radio ad calling for an end to the Washington NFL teams use of the R-word. Part of the Nations Change the Mascot campaign, the latest ad will air on Baltimores WBAL-AM and Detroits WXYT-FM in the lead-up to the cities Thanksgiving Day NFL games.
Entitled Giving Thanks, the new radio spot is the first from the campaign to surround NFL games that dont directly involve the Washington team. Previous ads have run in the nations capital and other cities where the D.C. team has played road games, and will continue throughout the remainder of the NFL season.
In the new advertisement, Oneida Indian Nation Representative Ray Halbritter celebrates the spirit of the Thanksgiving holiday and extends the Nations gratitude to those who have spoken out against Washingtons team name.
Thanksgiving is a holiday emphasizing the ideals of inclusion and mutual respect, and is a time when we give thanks. We would like to express our appreciation to everyone who has spoken out about the important moral and civil rights issue of changing the Washington football teams name, said Halbritter. Change the Mascot supporters have sent a powerful message to the NFL that no group deserves to be treated as the target of a hurtful racial slur, and that Native Americans should be treated as what we are: Americans.
Launched by the Oneida Indian Nation, Change the Mascot is a growing national campaign to end the Washington NFL teams use of the R-word. The grassroots movement has attracted supporters from all across the country and prompted numerous leading publications to halt their use of the teams name. Learn more about the Change the Mascot campaign at http://www.changethemascot.org or at https://twitter.com/ChangeDCMascot.
Full text of the Giving Thanks ad:
VOICEOVER: I’m Ray Halbritter of the Oneida Indian Nation. Thanksgiving is a day to celebrate the ideals of mutual respect between Native Americans and their surrounding communities and to give thanks.
“In that spirit, we express our gratitude to everyone who has stood up in support of an important civil rights issue – changing the Washington NFL team’s name.
“We give thanks to the civil rights and religious leaders, sports icons, members of the media, lawmakers from both parties, the President of the United States, and Americans from all walks of life who have spoken out against the continued use of Washington’s racist mascot. We are deeply thankful that this moral and civil rights issue has expanded into a national debate.
“It has been particularly inspiring to see young people leading on this issue: the students of Cooperstown High School in New York admirably voting to change their mascot and school newspapers from Oklahoma to Pennsylvania have decided to stop using the R-word.
“The supporters of change have sent a powerful message to the NFL. They have said that no group deserves to be treated as a target of a racial slur. They have said Native Americans deserve to be treated as what we are: Americans.
