Post Date: 2016-06-12 12:45:29 by Stephen Lendman
UEFA Bashes Russia for Euro 2016 Hooliganism by Stephen Lendman Hooliganism involving disorderly crowd behavior and violence all too commonly accompanies European football matches - rowdy groups, gangs or individuals responsible, not nations. Following Saturday’s Russia/England match, Russian fans broke into Marseille, France’s Stade Velodrome’s English zone. Violence followed, including on city streets for three straight days. Dozens were injured, at least four seriously. Russian Sports Minister Vitaly Mutko said Russian fans improperly behaving will be punished appropriately. He blamed poor organization and “weak” security measures for letting things get ...

Exaggerator wins Preakness, ends Nyquist's Triple Crown bid By Jay Busbee 23 hours ago The Turnstile A record 134,000 sodden race fans crowded into a rain-shrouded Pimlico Race Course in Maryland to watch the 141st Preakness. Kentucky Derby winner Nyquist sought to take the next step forward in the hunt for the Triple Crown. But it wasn't to be, as Exaggerator, runner-up in the Derby, got revenge and won the Preakness going away. Nyquist, Exaggerator, and the other 9 horses in the race had to negotiate a soggy, sloppy track, running 1 3/16 miles for a $1.5 million prize to the winner. Nyquist broke early to set a strong pace. Uncle Lino held the quarter-mile lead, but Nyquist ...

Jake Arrieta not willing to give the Cubs a hometown discount By Chris Cwik May 11, 2016 5:15 PM Big League Stew View photo (Photo by Joe Sargent/Getty Images) Should Chicago Cubs ace Jake Arrieta continue at this pace, he's almost certain to receive a mega-deal when he hits free agency following the 2017 season. Until then, however, the Cubs have the exclusive right to make sure Arrieta never leaves. If the two sides can agree on a contract extension, Arrieta will continue his feel-good transformation with the organization. While Arrieta's feel-good turnaround has been a great story, Arrieta isn't about to get nostalgic during contract negotiations. If the Cubs want him ...

Max Scherzer ties MLB record with 20 strikeouts against Tigers By Mark Townsend 22 hours ago Big League Stew Washington Nationals right-hander Max Scherzer is no stranger to making history. Last season, he completed two no-hitters, including one in which he came just one out short of a perfect game. Now he's etched his name in the history books under a different category of pitching dominance. In Wednesday's 3-2 victory against his former team, the Detroit Tigers, Scherzer tied the major-league record by striking out 20 in a nine-inning game. Scherzer had a chance to set a record. He entered the ninth with 18 strikeouts before fanning Miguel Cabrera and Justin Upton. He ...

29 THINGS YOU DIDN'T KNOW ABOUT THE SR-71 BLACKBIRD COURTESY OF LOCKHEED MARTIN By AARON MILLER Quantifying the exact level of badass-ness the SR-71 Blackbird achieved during its active career from the 1960s to the 1990s is impossible -- partly because, as a spy plane, much of its anecdotal history remains behind a veil of security. From its very first test flight, three days before Christmas in 1964, it straddled the boundaries between physics-bending speed and safety, top secret missions and public rockstar status, and even between Earth and space. Now basking in its second decade of retirement, Blackbird stands as a towering figure in the history of aviation, one which still ...

Those little things can end up being catastrophic. Kevin Michalowski | May 2, 2016 | Revolvers are good, reliable defensive tools. They are not, however, immune to malfunction.

You need to know what those things are and how to identify them, and—if possible—prevent them. Here are a few things that can go wrong with your revolver.

Jake Arrieta destroys ESPN's Stephen A. Smith for doubting stats by Chris Cwik April 27, 2016 Chicago Cubs ace Jake Arrieta is pretty sick of people questioning his performance. Arrieta is well-aware that his transformation from borderline starter to one of the best pitchers in the game invites suspicion, but told USA Today's Bob Nightengale "people are idiots" for thinking he's used performance-enhancing drugs. [Join a Yahoo Daily Fantasy Baseball contest now] We live in an age where any over-worldly achievement on a baseball field brings questions, so there were sure to be doubters even after Arrieta's stringent denial.

Rafael Palmeiro still haunted by positive steroid test By Chris Cwik 16 hours ago Big League Stew (AP Images) Eleven years later, Major League Baseball is still coming to terms with the 2005 congressional hearings on steroids.

Jose Canseco is still viewed as a pariah who will never be allowed back to the game, while Mark McGwire has been a major-league coach for years.

Trevor Story writing unprecedented first chapter to Rockies career By Kyle Ringo April 8, 2016 10:13 PM Big League Stew DENVER -- The jerseys worn to Coors Field on Friday afternoon for the Colorado Rockies home opener were mostly relics, celebrations of days gone by featuring names like Helton, Walker, Tulowitzki and some recognizing Gold Glove third baseman Nolan Arenado or slugger Carlos Gonzalez. There were no No. 27s pleading for autographs at the edge of dugout before the game, standing in the concession lines or sitting in the outfield hoping a home run would come their way. That is about to change. Almost from the moment fans were allowed into the building to catch the tail ...

Title IX and Trojan Horses: How a Law to Ensure Equality Became a Vehicle of Unequal Justice
Post Date: 2016-03-18 09:52:21 by Ada
When Congress passed the Higher Education Amendments of 1972 as an addition to the Higher Education Act of 1965, many of us cheered, and we especially cheered Title IX of the act which stated: No person in the United States shall, on the basis of sex, be excluded from participation in, be denied the benefits of, or be subjected to discrimination under any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance. At the time, I was a member of the all-male University of Tennessee track and field team and we were treated quite well.

Still, he's managed to become an instant fan favorite in both cities and a popular figure in the clubhouse among his teammates. That's because Kawasaki loves to have fun, enjoys entertaining teammates every chance he gets, and has a zest for life that ...

Out of Bounds

Althea Gibson was a black American lady tennis player who won Wimbledon and many other major championships during the late ’50s. She was also a very good singer and a friendly soul, carrying none of the anger and fury today’s blacks exhibit the minute the spotlight shines on them. She passed away some years ago, without the headlines that accompany any black American who has claimed victimhood and has denounced America as a racist, fascist state. Arthur Ashe also won Wimbledon—a couple of decades after Althea—and has a stadium named after him, not to mention a place at the black immortals’ table, a movie or two, and sainthood. Ashe was black and died of AIDS, thus ...

Danica Patrick's season of discontent By Dan Wetzel 11 hours ago Yahoo Sports Danica Patrick has a new sponsor in 2016. (AP) DAYTONA BEACH, Fla. — Across the early months of 2015 Danica Patrick couldn't avoid wondering if much of what she knew in NASCAR might be slipping away. GoDaddy, her chief sponsor for the past nine years, was transitioning as a company right as their sponsorship deal for her car needed to be negotiated. And the process, Patrick said, was frustrating. "Well, we definitely got strung along for a really long time last year about re-upping," Patrick told Yahoo Sports Friday as she prepared for Sunday's Daytona 500. "It was excuse ...

World Powers Agree on Syria Ceasefire Plan
Post Date: 2016-02-12 08:33:39 by Ada
Plan Won't Include ISIS or Nusra Front US and Russian officials are reporting that an agreement was reached today in Munich on an “ambitious” ceasefire plan for the Syrian Civil War, with a goal of ending all armed hostilities in the country within a week, excluding ISIS and Nusra Front territory. The plan came in the wake of failed UN peace talks, which saw the rebels demanding an immediate end to all attacks against them, then showing up, then insisting they weren’t there for the peace talks, then after the UN declared a “pause” arguing the talks never really began in the first place. That, and gains by the Syrian military in Aleppo, added to the push among ...

Why Glenn Beck’s Media Empire Is Burning Down Lloyd Grove 02.03.16 12:00 AM ET Glenn Beck was thanked by Ted Cruz in his Iowa victory speech, but for all his ‘mad genius,’ the right-wing media firebrand’s media company has become an abyss of backbiting and paranoia. Glenn Beck is beset by apocalyptic visions, sinister conspiracy theories, mind-blowing prophecies, mysterious illnesses, miraculous cures, and, yes, copious waterworks. But of all of the hobgoblins fluttering through his mind, consistency isn’t one of them. Beck regularly contradicts himself in word and deed—a trait that his less charitable associates call hypocrisy. For instance, mere ...
