Theodoor Rombouts (Antwerp 1597–1637 Antwerp), Card Players in an InteriorOil on canvas (Signed lower right: T. ROMBOVTS), 147 x 186 cm© 2017 London Art Week

ProvenanceBaron Corneille Osy de Zegwart (1757–1831); and by descent to Jean Osy de Zegwart (1792– 1866). And by descent to Baron Edouard Osy de Zegwart (1832–1900), governor of Antwerp. And by descent to Baroness Osy de Zegwart and by descent in her family until 2014.

NoteTheodoor Rombouts was the primary exponent of Flemish Caravaggism, a brief but important artistic phenomenon that peaked in the 1620s. Born in Antwerp in 1597, the history and genre painter is best known for his large-scale secular works depicting merry companies, music scenes and card-playing characters in compact compositions. His half-length figures, firmly modelled and always lively, wear theatrical costumes and are set in chiaroscuro lighting typical of the Flemish Caravaggisti, also known as the Antwerp Tenebrosi. The artist began as a pupil of François van Lanckvelt in 1608 and then studied under Abraham Janssens (c.1575–1632), whose influence is evident throughout his career. Sometime after drafting his last will and testament in 1616 Rombouts left for Rome where he quickly embraced the style of Caravaggio (1571–1610) and Bartolomeo Manfredi (1582–1622). There is little known about his time in Italy but the documentation that does exist places the artist in the Roman parish of Sant'Andrea delle Fratte in 1620, which means that Dirck van Baburen (c.1592/93–1624), David de Haen (1585–1622) and Manfredi were living nearby. Enticed by the Grand Duke of Tuscany, Rombouts also probably worked in Florence. Rombouts returned to his native city in 1625; he became a master in the painters' guild and a dean of the guild from 1629 to 1630. In 1627 he married Anna van Thielen, the sister of one of his pupils, flower painter Jan Philip van Thielen (1618–1667). The couple welcomed the birth of their daughter, Anna Maria, the following year. The successful artist painted mostly for private clients and for the open market but he also executed some altarpieces, with most commissions coming from Ghent. Though best known for his work in the Caravaggesque idiom, Rombouts's artistic development after returning to Antwerp followed popular taste. As the fashionable interest in Caravaggism began to wane after 1630, the savvy artist moved in the direction of Peter Paul Rubens (1577–1640) and Anthony van Dyck (1599–1641), towards greater refinement in his palette and surfaces. According to Leonard J. Slatkes, Rombouts's works were always only superficially Caravaggesque and were more profoundly shaped by the influences of his many Flemish baroque contemporaries.1 Little is known of his Antwerp workshop but his pupils included Nicolaas van Eyck (1617–1679), Jan Philip van Thielen and Paulus Robyns. Near the end of his life he attempted to replicate a house and studio in imitation of Rubens. The costly endeavour apparently incurred heavy debts, which he never had the opportunity to resolve due to his untimely death in 1637. The present work, Card Players in an Interior, belongs among the finest and most representative works of Rombouts's Caravaggesque genre scenes. Recalling Manfredi's merry company pictures, there is a marked sense of monumentality to the five figures that are arranged around a carpeted table, engaged in a game of cards. The individuals are realistic and expressive; the scene appears convincingly spontaneous and natural. Rombouts introduces repoussoir figures that confront the viewer and direct attention to the central bearded figure who stares down at his hand of cards, presumably a self-portrait. Rombouts also included a portrait of his wife, Anna, in the hatted figure seated beside him. The inclusion of self-portraits and portraits of family members was not unusual in Dutch and Flemish genre painting, despite the potentially negative associations of moralising subjects. Card playing was perceived as a time-waster at best and, at worst, was associated with any number of disreputable behaviours. Though no alcohol is depicted, coins are strewn about the table: a reference to the ‘unwholesome' activity of gambling. Portraits of Rombouts, his wife and even his young daughter can be seen in another of his works, The Backgammon Players, at the North Carolina Museum of Art, Raleigh (fig. 1), in which the lavishly dressed soldier bears the artist's likeness. This comparison not only confirms the identities of the Theodoor and Anna in our picture but also helps to date it. The Backgammon Players, painted in 1634, demonstrates Rombouts's move away from Caravaggism towards the prevailing baroque style as it evolved in Antwerp. Unlike our picture, the Raleigh composition is set in a deeper space with vaguely classicising figures. The palette is brighter, the lighting more diffuse and the costumes more sophisticated. The luxurious shimmering fabrics speak of the direct influence of Rubens and Van Dyck. Our Card Players was certainly produced earlier when Rombouts was still painting under the influence of Roman Caravaggism, adeptly applying chiaroscuro and local colour to his rustically expressive scenes.

Matthias Stomer (c.1600–after 1652), The Martyrdom of Saint Bartholomewcirca 1630-5. Oil on canvas, 44 x 62 in. (111.8 x 157.5 cm.) © 2017 London Art Week

Note: Matthias Stomer ranks among the most important and prolific Netherlandish masters of the seventeenth century who were active in Italy. This talented painter was among the last of the famed Dutch Caravaggisti. Although Stomer's birthplace cannot be documented with any certainty, the name Stom is of Southern Netherlandish (Flemish) derivation and it is possible that he emigrated from this region, like so many of his countrymen, to the Dutch Republic. Here he might have received his artistic training in Utrecht or possibly Amersfoort. The influence of Dutch painters from both those towns in terms of style and subject matter is readily detectable in his earliest work, in particular the influence of the prominent Utrecht painter, Gerrit van Honthorst, as well as that of Hendrick ter Brugghen, Joachim Wtewael or the venerable Abraham Bloemaert. In 1630 Stomer travelled to Rome and stayed there until around 1635. Our picture, The Martyrdom of Saint Bartholomew, was painted during this Roman period and is an important picture within his overall oeuvre. Saint Bartholomew is traditionally identified as one of Christ's original twelve apostles. After the Resurrection, Bartholomew is believed to have preached the gospel in India and Armenia. In the latter region, he was flayed alive and then hung upside down for refusing to worship idols. In Stomer's dramatic canvas, the doomed saint is posed frontally in half-length. He is stripped to his loincloth and one of the executioners has already begun his grisly task. Stomer has added the remarkable motif of a figure in a striking terracotta-coloured robe at the far left, perhaps a pagan priest, who holds a golden statuette of Minerva before the elderly saint, thereby contextualising the immediate cause of his martyrdom. Stomer was probably familiar with a picture of the saint's martyrdom painted in Rome by the French Caravaggist Valentin de Boulogne, datable to c.1616.

          Mike Leach Says He Was 'Cheated out of' Contract Salary at Texas Tech   

Former Texas Tech Red Raiders head coach Mike Leach told USA Today's Brent Schrotenboer he still harbors resentment toward his ex-employer because he believes he was "cheated out" of portions of his salary.

Leach, who is now the head coach for the Washington State Cougars, claimed Texas Tech owes him $2.5 million following his firing in 2009 for allegedly mistreating Adam James after he suffered a concussion. 

"This thing won’t really go away," Leach said. "And it’ll never go away until this thing is settled. And it should be settled, because why should the future generation bear the black eye and the cloud that their university cheated their most successful coach in history? And why should I bear that, some of the 10 most productive years of my career? I was cheated out of my salary, and all the great memories that I, fans, players and coaches had, are diminished."

Leach was fired eight years ago after he allegedly told a team trainer to take James, who could not practice because of a head injury, "to the darkest place, to clean out the equipment and to make sure that he could not sit or lean," according to ESPN.com

However, as Schrotenboer noted, allegations levied against Leach were never substantiated. 

"I didn’t lock Adam James anywhere. I didn’t tell Adam James to go anywhere," Leach said. "I told the trainer to get him off the field."

Leach proceeded to sue Texas Tech for damages, but lost and was later denied an appeal at the state Supreme Court level in 2012. A year earlier, an Appellate Court ruled in Texas Tech's favor after Leach filed a wrongful termination suit.

          The Resurgence of Matt Kemp: How He Went from $160M Bust to Potential All-Star   

ATLANTA — On a late afternoon in June, Matt Kemp settles into the right-handed batter's box at SunTrust Park to take his cuts.

The first few pitches tossed his way during batting practice end up sprinkled in the outfield grass. Then the power from the 6'4" Braves left fielder starts to show. Shots from his bat sail over the outfield wall. One flies over to the right of the 400-foot sign in right-center. Another lands in the Braves bullpen.

His swings, like his demeanor, are relaxed.

He looks comfortable. Happy. Free to be himself and free of distraction.

At 32, Kemp is having his best season since 2011, when he was 26 and playing for the Dodgers. He's hitting .309 with 12 home runs and 37 RBI—numbers that have him in the running for a starting spot in the All-Star Game. He's reminding baseball fans of the player who nearly won the National League triple crown in '11, when he led the league with 39 home runs and 126 RBI, finished third with a .324 average and also stole 40 bases.

Back then, it seemed like he would be a Dodger and a superstar for life.

But life beyond baseball was swirling around him.

There was the tabloid fodder—like dating Rihanna in 2010. There was the expectations-setting eight-year, $160 million contract extension. There were the injuries. And then there was the trade to San Diego. The weight gain. Then a second trade, this time to the Braves, and chatter about his San Diego mansion not selling at auction. He admitted in a post on the Players' Tribune that he had "let a big contract, the Hollywood lifestyle, injuries and bad relationships" get to him, which earned him a "reputation for being selfish, lazy and a bad teammate."

He was trending dangerously toward another label: bust.

But not so fast. Kemp's story wasn't finished. Not yet.

His resurgence in Atlanta—and his jaw-dropping transformation in the offseason—is eliminating any inkling of those perceptions. He's hitting. He's healthy. By all appearances, he's having fun.

And the Braves organization loves him.

"He is one of our leaders," manager Brian Snitker says. "He is a guy in the clubhouse that people respect. … He's just a great guy to have around."

The difference?

It's simple, Kemp says. He was hurt then. He's not now.

"It was just very frustrating," Kemp says. "It wasn't fun because sometimes I wasn't getting the results that I wanted. I was working hard and doing what I needed to do.

"It's hard to overcome injuries. It takes time, and once you get past those injuries, then you start to become more successful again, and the confidence level comes up, and you get that swag that you once had.

"It'd be tough to hear some of the things that might have been said, like, 'He lost it.' I didn't lose it. With injuries and things like that, it's not easy."


Kemp is in the Braves clubhouse, comfortably settled in a soft black leather chair as some teammates nearby shoot pool. Conversations surrounding him provide a pleasant hum.

He looks laid-back, wearing a black T-shirt that reads "EQUALITY" on the front and "42" on the back, in homage to Jackie Robinson.

The topic of conversation is recent incidents of racism in sports. Seventy years after Robinson broke the baseball color barrier, it remains one of the game's constants. The hate comes in various forms. Trolling on social media. Screaming obscenities from the stands. A fan in May uttered the N-word and threw a bag of peanuts at Orioles outfielder Adam Jones.

Racism isn't exclusive to MLB in the realm of sports. Someone painted the N-word on a gate at LeBron James' Los Angeles home before the 2017 NBA Finals started, according to the L.A. police.

Kemp acknowledges fans have spewed hate toward him dating back to his days in the minor leagues. He declines to name the cities where it occurred, "but it definitely happens, for sure," he says.

"That's not new to me or to LeBron or to Adam," Kemp says. "It's something that you've got to deal with all the time. Like LeBron said, it doesn't matter how much people admire you, how much money you have, how famous you are. Racism is still alive. It's sad. It's disappointing. I guess it's something that I guess we have to deal with. It's tough to deal with, but it's sad."

He didn't pay attention to things like that when he was younger. Maybe it didn't exist because all he was doing was playing ball and wasn't yet famous. Maybe he just didn't recognize it. He's not sure.

"But when you get older you start to realize, like, 'Dang. They just really said that,'" Kemp says. "It's kind of crazy."

Growing up in Midwest City, Oklahoma, Kemp and his cousins were "pretty much" the only African-Americans on his teams, he says. A two-sport athlete, his basketball teammates teased him for playing baseball—"What are you doing? Why do you have the cleats and a glove? You play basketball," he recalls them saying—as football and hoops were more popular where he lived.

"[My friends] never came to games," Kemp says. "They didn't know how good I was. They didn't know that the scouts were coming to see me play."

He's shown a photo of himself from his childhood.

He says he's not sure how old he was, but the picture depicts him holding a bat and taking a mighty cut—"I don't know if I was swatting flies. Hopefully I don't swing at pitches like that now," he wisecracks—with a look of determination on his young face, long before the glitz and the glamour ever entered his life.

"You look at a picture like that, and that's like—that's me as a kid dreaming about playing baseball, and now I'm living that dream," Kemp says. "Not a lot of people can say they're living their dream."

Kemp grew up in a single-parent household, with his mom, Judy Henderson, a nurse. Even though Atlanta is more than 800 miles away, it was easy for him and a cousin to get hooked on the Braves, whose games were broadcast on TBS.

"We, like, lived for the Braves," Kemp says. "We'd come home after school, turn on the TV and watch the Braves play baseball games. It was the best thing in the world."

The dream became tangible in 2003, when the Dodgers drafted Kemp in the sixth round out of high school. Three years later, he was playing at Dodger Stadium. The lights seem to shine brighter in Hollywood, and he showed signs of becoming a budding superstar in 2009, when he hit .297 with 26 home runs and 101 RBI and won his first Gold Glove and Silver Slugger awards.

His marquee season was in 2011. He finished second to Ryan Braun in the MVP race, but after Braun's subsequent PED admission, many think Kemp should have received the award. As a consolation prize, he did win his second Gold Glove and Silver Slugger awards that year.

Life was fast-paced. He ascended the fashion ladder, seen as one of the best-dressed players in baseball. Paparazzi surrounded him when he dated Rihanna in 2010. His average dipped to .249 that season, but he still hit 28 home runs.

Fast forward to seven years later in Atlanta, with a reporter trying to tiptoe around the Rihanna question with Kemp. It elicits a laugh from him.

"I think that life. That's just part of L.A.," Kemp says. "You're in an industry where you meet famous people. You have famous friends. That's just part of being in L.A. I mean, that took a little getting used to, but the injuries were something I was never used to. That was harder on me that anything."


The injuries. There were many of them. A snapshot:

Kemp had two stints on the disabled list for hamstring injuries in 2012. The first one ended his streak of 399 consecutive games, which at the time was the longest streak by an active player. In late August, he injured his left shoulder after crashing into a wall at Coors Field, but he continued to play. In the offseason, Kemp underwent surgery to repair a torn labrum and damage to his rotator cuff. Doctors told him not to swing a bat until January.

Kemp made trips to the DL in 2013 for a right hamstring strain and joint inflammation in the surgically repaired shoulder. His return to the lineup that July lasted for one game, as he suffered a left ankle injury when sliding into home plate, a play in which Kemp later said he wasn't running hard. He headed back to the DL.

Kemp returned in mid-September, but it was a short stay. He missed a game later in the month because of soreness in his left ankle and was ruled was out for the playoffs. Kemp had a minor surgical procedure to clean up his left shoulder and also underwent microfracture surgery on the ankle. He ultimately played just 73 games in 2013, and he would start the 2014 season on the disabled list.

Through it all, the low point was suffering the ankle injury and eventually needing surgery, Kemp says.

"My shoulder was tough, but I think the ankle was the toughest because I was used to being a speed guy, stealing bases," he says. "Now it's not as easy to do that because my ankle doesn't allow me to be as fast as I once was. But I've just got to deal with it."

In 2014, his last season with Los Angeles, then-manager Don Mattingly moved Kemp out of center field, first putting him at left and then later in right. After the season, the Dodgers traded him to San Diego. While he put up solid numbers (.265 with 23 home runs and 100 RBI in 2015, and .268 with 35 HRs and 108 RBI in 2016), he was a guy with a lengthy injury history and a huge paycheck playing for a bad team.

His mammoth 2011 campaign continued to get further away in the rearview mirror.


2011 was also the year when Braves first baseman Freddie Freeman, who was a rookie, first met Kemp.

"He was on another level," Freeman recalls. "Every time he got up to the plate, I was like, 'Oh no, here it comes.'"

Through a mutual friend, Melvin Upton Jr., who played for both the Braves (2013-14) and the Padres (2015 through part of 2016), Freeman and Kemp hung out a couple of times. Since Kemp arrived in Atlanta, he and Freeman have grown close. Freeman calls Kemp's personality "infectious."

"It's a great personality," Freeman says. "He draws people to him, and you just want to be around him. Every day, obviously when I'm healthy, we would go get our Starbucks together, we go out to the field together, we do pretty much everything together. ...

"He wants to win. He works hard every single day, and that rubs off on other people."

Kemp's intensity is visible. But so is the joy, which he credits to his teammate and friend.

"Honestly, you know who has a lot to do with that is Freddie," Kemp says. "I've played with a lot of guys that like to have fun and joke around, but he's just one guy that—I honestly never see him, like, mad."

The chemistry worked in the lineup, too. In the 56 games he played with the Braves in 2016, Kemp hit .280 with 12 home runs and had an OPS of .855.

"It was great," Snitker says. "You get a guy, a middle-of-the-order lineup guy like that, he was a welcome addition. It lengthened our lineup, kind of broke up all the left-handers we had going."

With Kemp on the team, opponents could no longer "pick and choose" who they pitched to. "He legitimized what we had going on," Snitker says.

But not all was perfect. At the end of the 2016 season, Kemp wasn't always finishing games, playing seven innings before being replaced for defensive reasons in left field.

"Every time that happened to him, he'd come up to me in the dugout and say, 'This is embarrassing. I don't want this to happen anymore,'" Freeman says.

Heading into the offseason, Kemp was healthy, which hadn't happened often in the last few years. He took advantage of it and got to work, saying there were "no limits."

When asked what was the catalyst for change, Kemp all but shrugged it off.

"I haven't really had too many offseasons where I didn't have to rehab anything," Kemp says. "That's a big difference. You know, if you go into an offseason hurt and you have to rehab the whole offseason, that's just very frustrating. I was pretty much able to work out and do whatever it is I wanted to do."

Snitker says Kemp told the team at the end of the 2016 season, "You're going to see a new me when I get here."

"And he did," Snitker says. "Obviously, he was very dedicated to that and worked his tail off. It was real refreshing when you came in and saw the guy's dedication to what we're trying to do, so it was really good to see, and it told you a lot about the person."

Freeman got updates from Kemp during the offseason—sometimes in mid-workout.

"I got FaceTimed every week...usually when he was on the elliptical," Freeman says. "He was doing two-a-days. He would do lifting in the morning, and he would come back and do conditioning later in the day."

When Freeman was with his wife in Bal Harbour, Florida, celebrating their anniversary, he ran into Kemp. The change was already noticeable.

"You could tell after a month-and-a-half, he was already looking different," Freeman says. "People were asking me what was he looking like, and I wouldn't tell them. I said, 'You guys can just find out for yourself,' and he came to spring training obviously so much better. I think he had lost like 25 pounds."


Kemp's work continued through spring training and into the season, and the results are evident in his numbers. He started the season 8-for-16 with four doubles and two home runs in his first four games. He made a brief trip to the 10-day DL for a tight right hamstring in April, and he missed one game in June with left hamstring tightness. Aside from that, he has picked up where he left off. On April 29 at Milwaukee, he became the first Brave to hit three home runs in a game since Mark Teixeira did it in 2008. He hit his 250th career home run on May 31.

Kemp says there's been no change in approach. It's just a byproduct of being healthy and putting in the effort.

"He was first there, last to leave, was very consistent in all his workouts, and he was always out there doing his drills, in the weight room, workout room, practices, everything," Snitker says of Kemp's spring training work. "It was really good to see—and even now. I mean, the guy shows up to play every day. That's the thing. He's signed on to play the games, so he is a guy you can depend on every day. You know he's going to be there for you."

The house in San Diego hasn't sold yet, and Kemp doesn't know if there will be another auction. These days, his home base is in Prosper, Texas, about three hours away from Midwest City.

How long he stays in Atlanta remains to be seen. Despite his production, the Braves are under .500 and are struggling to keep pace with the Nationals in the NL East. Could Kemp get dealt for a third time? Speculation is slowly heating up, with Bob Nightingale of USA Today mentioning him as one of the top 25 players who could switch teams this summer.

But even as the team rebuilds, Kemp is a good fit in Atlanta. He helped protect the Braves' cornerstone, Freeman, in the lineup—before Freeman fractured his wrist in May—and his teammates are thankful he's there.

"It's nice to be able to have a guy like him—and Freddie and some of the other guys—but he's kind of my big brother," shortstop Dansby Swanson says. "I feel like he's always got my back. He kind of, like, protects me. ... He'll take me out to dinner when we're on the road and kind of just gives you that family thing. We've been able to hit it off really well, and I feel like I can go to him and trust him with a lot of things. So he's special to have around, and I am definitely very, very grateful to have him."

Will this get rid of the critics? Even if it doesn't, Freeman doesn't think that factors into Kemp's mindset.

"We play in a game of what-have-you-done-for-me-now, and the thing is last year people said he wasn't very good, but he had 35 home runs and [close to] 110 RBI," Freeman says. "That doesn't happen. He's a superstar. He's been a superstar his whole career.

"After his 2011 year, he had shoulder surgery and he dealt with hamstring problems. It's hard to compete at a high level when you're not feeling good every day. ... I don't think he's trying to put away what people are saying; he was just doing him. And if it comes along the way that it shuts people up in the process…"

Freeman pauses, and then says, "But that's not his ultimate goal.

"He's here trying to win and get back to the playoffs because he hasn't been there in a few years either, just like I haven't. That's his main goal. It's not about shutting people up, and people can say whatever they want about him, me...that just comes with the territory.  If we go 0-for-4, then they say we should be benched and stuff like that, but if we get two hits the next day, we're the greatest people ever. That just comes with it.

"But he's not trying to do that. He's just trying to do his job and help win games."

There's another element as well, and it's visible when Kemp's megawatt smile is caught on TV broadcasts. He's having fun, reminiscent to children who are playing simply for the love of the game.

"I've been playing baseball since I was four years old," Kemp says. "It's supposed to be fun. It's not supposed to be super-duper serious. I mean, you get serious at times, and of course you get competitive and you want to win, but I think a lot of people forget about having fun."

          Everyone With A Name Match Will Be A Vote Fraudster   
Kobach knows this game with databases. You program them to make soft matches - similar names, party affiliation - and then accuse everyone of having a match of having voted twice.

A letter from Kris Kobach, the vice chairman of a White House commission looking into voter fraud and other irregularities, is drawing fire from some state election officials. The letter, sent Wednesday to all 50 states, requests that all publicly available voter roll data be sent to the White House by July 14, five days before the panel's first meeting.

          A Champion Bodybuilder - Do You Have What It Takes?   

My career began in the eighties. I never found myself going to a health club, much less taking time for myself, until I was in college. I had to occupy my time between classes somehow, so one day I went to the gym. I grew up without self-discipline, confidence, or faith in myself. As a youth, I was overweight and short. In my late teens, during the first few years of my career and with the help of a few close friends, I was fortunate to have discovered three very important things about myself that changed me forever: hope, belief, and motivation.

Hope

I did not set out to be a champion bodybuilder. Nor did I really want to. But I did hoped I could get in better shape with some hard work.

Belief

When I first stepped into a health club, it was frightening. I had two friends that exercised with me on a regular basis. The confidence they had in me started positively affecting my attitude and fear of failure. After awhile, I noticed those fears I had about myself slowly began to disappear.

Motivation

As I developed more confidence, I started to realize how important it was for this change to come from the "inside out." Looking better, having more energy and getting physically stronger are great things to experience, but what I am most grateful for is that my heart was also changing. I felt better about myself. I had purpose and I was doing something positive. That heart-felt motivation became the glue that has kept me going for all these years. No matter what you do in life, if you have purpose, and if it is good for others, life will be rewarding.

Here are a few principles I have learned along the way may help you become a true bodybuilding champion.

Principle #1: Be Sold Out! Whether you are a competitive bodybuilder or just do it as a hobby to stay in shape - have the attitude that you are going to exercise and eat right for life.

Principle#2: Ask not, have not! If you do not know something, ask a man/women that you feel does. Knowledge is powerful.

Principle #3: Leave your ego at the door! Your ego is your biggest competitor by far. The reality is, it's NOT all about you. If you think it is, you will never be a Champion for any length of time.

Principle #4: Work-out smart not hard! Bodybuilding is about efficiency, not effort.

Principle #5: Know when to stop. If you need time off, take it. If you do not want to compete anymore, but are afraid not to, then you are doing it for the wrong reasons.

Principle #5: Have fun. Don't be wound up like a clock all the time. Relax!

Principle #6: Put variety in your workouts. Never think your workout program is the best. Change it up every three months.

Principle #7: Only compete once a year! If you are a competitive bodybuilder only compete in one show a year. If you do more, you will burn out and lose valuable muscle.

Principle #8: Never compete for a trophy! If you are a trophy hunter you will never be a true champion. True champions do it for the journey.



          Bodybuilding Benefits - The Price for Confidence!   

Success came to me at an early age. However, it did not come without a price. Bodybuilding found me; I did not go looking for it. At seventeen I knew nothing about weights, eating right, let alone having any sort of discipline. Here are a few things I learned along the way that I believe it takes to make a champion in your own heart.

Hope:

Deep in side you only need a small amount of HOPE to get you to the next day. In the beginning of my career that's all I had.

Belief:

Confidence can grow inside. If you don't have it, take your ego out of it and sooner or later bodybuilding will give it to you. Whether it comes from you or someone else, you really have to belief. For me, I had two friends that believed in my first, then after a while they began to rub off on me.

Pure Motives:

Have pure motives of being healthy verses just looking good. If you have desires to truly feel better health wise and about your self, then you will have more motivation in the down times. Early on, I started to feel the benefits both physically and emotionally of what bodybuilding was doing to me.

Here are some common mistakes people make that keep them from being Champions!

1. Egos: In many ways most people allow their egos to defeat them and get in the way of the full potential. You might not get this but, bodybuilding is NOT about you! Lose it, or keep on losing in life.

2. Afraid of Change: Most thinks their way works best. Wrong! Bodybuilding is an art. Art is subjective. Each person is different. The minute you think you know everything is the time you should give it up.

3. Ashamed to ask for help: The smartest thing I did when I was first started bodybuilding and competing was to ask for help. Knowledge is power when you adapt it to your personality. You are not living up to your potential if your pride is in the way.

4. No goal of mission. If you are just going to the gym to go, you are not being smart in your training. Map out your training one year in advance. Having purpose promotes focus.

5. The more is better trap. The more you do the bigger and leaner you will be. NOT! Work smart and efficient rather than long and hard. The smartest thing I ever did was set a time frame to my workouts.

6. Off season blues. People slack off after an event of competition. You should be in it for life. You should be sold out to exercise. If you are not, and only train when you are getting ready to compete, you are in the sport for the wrong reasons. Forget it; you will never be a champion. Champions are sold out!

What ever your goals are or level you are at, remember what bodybuilding truly is about. What is truly is about are not what you see, but what you feel. Yes, being a Champion comes with a price. But what price would you pay for the freedom to live your life with confidence.

          How to Lose the Most Fat and Build the Most Muscle in 30 Days   

A lot can happen in 30 days.

The dream of everyone who trains is to lose maximum fat and build maximum muscle in the shortest period of time possible. While it is definitely possible to both lose fat and gain muscle at the same time, in my experience, the best results come from concentrating on one major goal at a time.

Let me put it this way: to lose fat, you need a caloric deficit. To build muscle, you need a caloric surplus. If you try to do both at the same time, you may just remain exactly where you are!

So the question before us is - how do we maximize both fat loss and muscle gain, two very much opposing goals, in only 30 days?

It's simple, we focus on both goals in the same program but not at the exact same time!

By alternating rapidly back and forth between reduced-calorie fat loss training and higher-calorie mass-oriented training, you can not only accomplish both goals at the same time, you can actually use the two opposing goals to feed on each other and send your results through the roof!

To illustrate my point, remember how quickly you gain weight when coming off a strict diet? Remember how quickly you lose weight when you start to diet and you haven't been careful about what you've been eating? That's your body rapidly adapting to a stress. One of the most powerful features of this switching back and forth is in the change itself - your body changes far quicker when you give it a powerful reason.

What is the result of this switching back and forth? Extremely rapid fat loss and extremely rapid muscle gain.

To maximize the effects of this switching, you must tailor your training, diet and supplementation towards your specific goal during that particular time. Proper manipulation of these factors will greatly enhance the body's hormonal response to this program, which is the real key to maximizing your results.

For five days, we will target everything about your training and nutrition towards fat loss.

You will reduce your caloric intake below maintenance levels to promote fat burning.

You will reduce the rest periods between sets in your weight training to increase the intensity of the workload and boost the metabolism.

You will increase your training volume, performing more sets for each bodypart.

You will not push your body to muscular failure , pushing to failure can be too stressful to the muscles when on a reduced-calorie diet. Stop one rep short of this point.

You will include cardio training, preferably High Intensity Interval Training for best results, to burn calories and further boost your metabolism.

You will NOT take creatine during this time (I'll explain why below).

It is best to follow a low-carb diet during this time for maximum effectiveness. Eating this way will be especially powerful when you switch to the next phase of the program.

After five days, your metabolism will be just starting to get used to the training and nutritional program you're following. Now we'll throw it a curveball and change everything!

For the next five days, you will be focusing your training, nutrition and supplementation completely on muscle building.

You will increase your caloric and protein intake to promote gains in muscle mass.

You will increase your rest periods in between sets to allow for more recovery and increased strength in your sets.

You will decrease your training volume, doing fewer sets but with greater intensity. This is the time to really push your muscles to the edge! You're feeding them now, so don't be shy about training them hard.

You will eliminate all cardio training in order to maximize muscle gain. Cardio training can burn calories that should be used for the muscle building process.

You will load creatine for the first three days of the muscle-gain phase. This will take advantage of and greatly enhance the flood of water and nutrients into the muscles.

You will NOT follow a low-carb diet during this time. We want lots of carbs to provide energy and promote insulin release (the body's primary storage hormone). This insulin release will help shuttle protein and other nutrients into the muscles to help with building.

The body's hormonal response to this huge change in training, nutrition and supplementation is tremendous. Sensing a feast after a famine, it will greedily take in all the nutrients it can and store them in the form of glycogen (for carbs), muscle mass (for protein) and fat (to some extent). Since you will only be doing this phase for 5 days, however, fat gains will be minimal so don't be shy to eat!

It is important to note that you should eat a lot but you should eat clean , loading up on junk food will not give you the best results. You've got to provide your body with quality materials to rebuild with or you may not gain as much muscle and you may add too much fat.

After five days of this training, your metabolism will be cranking along, happily building muscle. Now we'll pull the rug out and go right back into fat-loss training for five days. Since your body is used to getting more food and your metabolism is still moving fast, switching to fat-loss training at this time will immediately result in your body burning far more fat than if you were using a conventional fat loss program.

In 30 days, you will complete three rounds of this rapid-adaptation training. As you will soon experience, this switching back and forth between a short, targeted fat loss program and a short, targeted muscle-building program can have a tremendous and rapid impact on bodyfat and muscle mass levels.

What does this mean for you? It means you can lose fat faster and gain muscle faster, taking FULL advantage of your body's natural reaction and rapid adaptation to massive change.

Think this program sounds good? You ain't seen nothing yet...

This particular program is just a taste of what you'll find in the full All-Star Trainers eBook from AtoZFitness. In addition to a detailed explanation of how to perform my program, including a day-by-day guide and set-by-set workouts to follow, you'll also get the rapid fat-loss and muscle-building secrets of 11 of the most knowledgeable and respected trainers in the world, including Tom Venuto, Pete Sisco, David Grisaffi, Jeremy Markum, Phil Campbell, Christopher V. Guerriero and many others!

The next 30 days are going to pass by whether you get this information or not. You could stick to your conventional programs and get slow (if any) results. How would you like to make these next 30 days the most productive of your entire training career?!

          Identity is not always Community   
A few days ago, Rajdeep Sardesai, generally a liberal, reasonable and likable voice in the Indian TV media, tweeted,

Big day for my goa. Two GSBs, both talented politicians become full cabinet ministers. Saraswat pride!! @manoharparrikar and Suresh Prabhu.
I cringed. And not just as someone who, through the random genetic lottery, was born in a family whose caste label reads Goud Saraswat Brahmin (GSB). I was particularly disappointed that an otherwise progressive voice was echoing such medieval sentiments. I tweeted back my disagreement and gave in to the hashtag impulse, labeling it #SaraswatShame. The hashtag was half in jest, half in disappointment, and not exactly accurate, but we'll come to that later.

I was not the only one who found fault with his tweet. Many people pushed back, with the responses ranging from outright abuse to expressions of disappointment. Rajdeep doubled down, responding,

 proud GSB, proud Goan, proud Indian. No contradiction.
And yesterday, he defended himself at length in a column in Hindustan Times titled Identity is not always destiny.

The title of the column is perfect, because identity may not always be destiny, but identity is not always "community" either. In fact, the core of my disagreement with Sardesai lies in conflating caste with community, and placing caste identity in the same bracket as being from a state or a country.

I hate writing stuff like "Oxford/Webster's dictionary defines community as....." so I'll leave it to you to look up exactly what the definition is. But the way I see it, a community is shaped and defined through some common experience or attitude/outlook.

I consider myself a part of many many communities. I am part of Indian, American, Indian-American, Punekar, Mumbaikar, New Yorker, Maharashtrian, Marathi, etc. communities as a result of sharing geography or language and/or nationality with others in that group. I am part of Engineer, IIM, MBA, PhD, Penn State, Academia, Marketing, etc, communities as a result of sharing my education or career related experiences with others in that group. Thinking test cricket is the best sport ever makes me part of the test cricket puritan community. Loving the Pittsburgh Steelers team and cheering it on every season makes me part of the Steeler Nation.

I am not sure what experience or attitude or outlook would or should make me consider myself (and with unabashed pride) part of the GSB community, at least in the 21st century. I can understand caste being considered a source of community identity a century or two ago, when people lived more or less segregated into those castes. But then we all generally realized that the caste system isn't the best topology to adopt if we want to build a good society, because the system seeded and engendered discrimination on the basis of birth.

Almost all Indians I know think (or at least say) that the caste system is a relic that should be relegated to irrelevance in an ideal society. Then a good start would be to think of caste as irrelevant, not as a specious source of pride. And that's where Sardesai's tweet had a problem - by perpetuating that which should ideally be irrelevant.

Sardesai drops a lot of names, from Sachin Tendulkar to Deepika Padukone, when enumerating the "enormous contributions" of our supposed community. But what exactly do Rajdeep or I as GSBs have in common meaningfully with Sachin Tendulkar as a GSB, that we don't with Ajinkya Rahane, also from Mumbai and not (as far as I can tell) a GSB? What have we as GSBs shared with other GSBs other than simply the label of being called GSBs?

Is it the most commonly defined culinary feature of GSBs - we have religious sanction to eat fish? Heh! We do not have religious sanction to eat steaks but clearly both Sardesai and I enjoy a good slab of succulent cow meat.

I don't really consider myself part of the Saraswat "community" and so don't really feel #SaraswatShame in Sardesai's bizarre views. I know being Saraswat is a tiny irrelevant trivial part of my identity, but it's no more defining of me than my identity as a guy with black hair. And I am surprised that someone like Sardesai is conflating such an irrelevant expression of identity with community.

What is the basis of defining this community other than just the label identifying ourselves as such?

Shared history? I won't go into the specifics of the problems with the history-based argument Sardesai makes in his column, mainly because Kaustubh has done it splendidly already.

But history brings me to the other problem with the "Saraswat Pride" sentiment that Sardesai espouses. And that's the history of the privileged and powerful position that brahmins in general, including GSBs, used to hold in the caste system with legal sanction until recently. We had a monopoly on education and on running the religion. We were the "haves" in a system that perpetrated the vilest atrocities, violent as well as insidious, on a large swathe of the population we defined as lower caste or caste-less.

As Sardesai notes a little fallaciously

In this political milieu, the Brahmins have usually lost out because their numerical strength doesn’t justify greater political representation. Which is why it is significant that Parrikar and Prabhu made the cut.
This is a point on which I recently had an argument with some fellow Marathi Brahmin friends as well. This weird self-pitying victim mentality that many Brahmins have about not being uber-dominant in politics the way we are in almost every other aspect of Indian society, from industry to academia to entertainment. Never mind that the proportion of Prime Ministers, Presidents, Chief Ministers, and Governors over the years from the Brahmin community is probably at least 3 times the proportion of Brahmins in the general population (caveat - I haven't crunched the numbers, but I strongly suspect this to be the case based on what I could remember).

But we still love indulging in this weird victim mentality in the "political milieu". Never mind that both guys Sardesai mentions have held positions of political power in the past. Parrikar was the Chief Minister of Goa and Prabhu was a cabinet minister in the last BJP government as well.

Regardless of all this, even if you grant the factually questionable premise that Brahmins are deprived of political power as a result of caste-based politics prevalent in many parts of the country, this cannot be viewed as divorced from history, especially in a democracy. Autocratic rule allowed higher castes to monopolize power, resources, and education for centuries. If 6 decades of democracy has resulted in a backlash electorally, well, suck it up.

Related to this, someone asked me online, "Why do you have problems with Sardesai touting Saraswat pride but you have no problems with people celebrating historic Dalit or OBC achievements in politics?"

I couldn't believe that I had to actually explain it, but here is what I said. Dalit or OBC leaders achieving a position of power after centuries of discrimination and systematic disenfranchisement is actually bucking the trend of history. Righting old wrongs in a way. In terms of a sports metaphor, it's like cheering the underdog. On the other hand, when people from a caste that held power, enjoyed monopoly over intellectual resources and were complicit in perpetuating discrimination until recently start gloating about their achievements, it almost suggests they are implying supremacy again.

It's like.......so many commentators, black and from other races, expressed pride and satisfaction in a black man becoming President of the United States. In the historic context, it makes perfect sense. Your expressions of community pride, to not seem distasteful, have to gel with the historic context.

Let's say the next President of America is white. What Sardesai tweeted was the equivalent of a white news anchor like Brian Williams tweeting "White pride!" in response. And responding to criticism with "Proud white guy, proud Jersey guy, proud American! No contradictions."

Because identity is not always community.

          Advice for International Masters Students Cold-Call Emailing Business School Professors   
It is that time of the year again for me as an assistant professor in an American business school. August-September, the start of the academic year. When I get at least a handful of emails everyday from just-arrived international Masters students, typically from India and China, asking about Research Assistant (RA) or Teaching Assistant (TA) positions. I usually send a prompt reply telling them I have no positions available and wish them luck. Most other people in my place in business schools just ignore the mails and/or delete them.

This post is meant to explain why I almost always send summary rejections and why most others ignore or delete the emails.

The key to this explanation is the almost unique nature of the microcosm that are business schools. Specifically, research-oriented business schools that co-exist with prestigious engineering schools in the same university such as mine.

Research in business schools is very different from research in engineering schools. In engineering schools, research has a lot to do with winning 6-7 figure grants and patents. That is the nature of the engineering world. In business schools, the incentives for tenure-track research professors are different. The nature of our field is such that there are few, if any, opportunities for patents and big grants. In our field, research productivity is measured by publications in top level journals.  

The other aspect of business research is the cost element. The reason we don't care as much about grants is that our research is nowhere as expensive to conduct as engineering research. We don't need expensive equipment, months long experiments, and suchlike. Most business research is conducted using secondary data or individual behavioral experiments. The most expensive equipment we need is limited to powerful computers to do our analysis. 

We don't have as many conferences to go to. In each of the sub-fields of business (such as Finance, Marketing, Management etc), there are two, maybe three MUST-ATTEND conferences each year. Our conferences aren't as selective as engineering conferences in terms of who gets to present. Obviously, "conference proceedings" are a non-factor in tenuring decisions when it comes to business school faculty. What matter are publications.

Basically, our research doesn't cost that much. That's the cost side.

Now on to the revenue side. Most business schools have MBA programs that charge tuition way higher than the average program. Most MBA programs don't offer any funding. MBA programs earn business schools a lot of money. Then there are undergraduate programs. Undergrad business programs are very popular in most schools in the US. So business schools get a decent chunk of change from the universities for that. Then there are endowments, consulting fees, and other revenue opportunities.

So to summarize what I have said so far, business schools in the US have a higher revenue than other schools, and have lower research costs than other schools. And, to reiterate, faculty research is measured in terms of publications in top journals, not patents, conference proceedings, or grants. Not that there are that many business-centric grants anyway.

As a result, here is how the typical contract for a typical tenure-track faculty member in a research-oriented business school works. We get a salary. And we get a research budget from our business school that is roughly $10,000-50,000 per year. 

These amounts might be relatively paltry for engineering professors who need to buy expensive equipment and need to hire several grad students to take care of the equipment and run experiments. But in business schools, that amount is plenty. 

Then there's the unique nature of business school PhD programs. They are geared exclusively towards academia. Which means the program is designed only to send graduates into academic positions, NOT industry positions. 99.9% of marketing PhDs will become marketing professors, not work in marketing jobs in the industry. 99.9% of management PhDs will become management professors, not work in management jobs in the industry. And so on.

PhD programs in business schools will also have a tiny intake compared to engineering schools. In a typical top-50 or even top-100 research business school in the US, the total incoming PhD class size every year will be about 15, with 2-3 students dedicated to sub-fields such as finance, marketing, management, etc.

In business schools, these PhD students are fully funded and paid a stipend by the business school. In return, they have to work 20 hours a week each for tenure track professors.

(Sidebar: the most "privileged" international grad students in any school are business school PhDs. They are assured of tuition waivers and stipends for at least 4 years from the school itself, and not tied to any Professor like in engineering schools. They also get academic positions relatively easily without having to do postdocs.)

Now, each department will have a roughly 1:1 ratio between tenure track professors and PhD students. Part of each tenure track professor's contract is 10 hours or "free" RA work from an assigned PhD student. Free as in, the professor doesn't pay the student. The business school does. And the business school pays for the tuition.

So now we come to the main point. Most of us business school professors have a PhD student assigned to work with us without us paying anything. Our research budgets, given by the school not from grants, are in the 10-50K range to buy computers, buy data, go to conferences, etc....generous but not enough to fund a grad student, which including tuition and stipend, will use up the entire budget.

When a Masters student from engineering or quasi-engineering (Information Systems, Technology Management etc) fields sends a cold-call email to a typical business school professor, he is making a pitch to someone who has neither the requirement nor the budget to hire him.

That's maybe 99% of business school professor. The 1% who might have RA/TA positions for you are the rare minority of business school professors who got a grant or got an extra endowment for a research lab or something. They might just have positions that Masters students can fill. They tend to advertise their positions well in advance. But even if cold-calling works for them, it needs to be very specific.

Many international students make the mistake of composing one utterly general boilerplate email and sending it to all professors. See this for instance.


In this case, even if I was a professor with an opportunity for this student, I wouldn't contact him. Because the email is so general. If I want to hire a Masters student, I would like that student to be genuinely interested in what I am doing.

So even if you do send cold-call emails to business school professors, make sure they are individually customized and reflect their particular research interests. 

And of course, make sure you really are interested in the research of the professor you are pitching your services to. We professors do talk to each other, you know? If during a coffee chat, we discover that Masters Student XYZ sent an email to me saying "I am really passionate about Marketing and hope to make a career in it", and also to my Finance colleague saying, "I am really passionate about Finance and hope to make a career in it", it not only gives us something to chuckle about, but also destroys your credibility in our eyes forever.

I'll end by saying that in general, the strike rate for an engineering or quasi-engineering MS student getting RA/TA positions from individual professors in business schools are low. And I hope this post informs incoming Masters students about this and saves them some wasted effort.

Daniel Ash, former guitarist of Bauhaus, Tones on Tail, and Love and Rockets, recently told Kansas City’s the Pitch that he was inspired to take to the road again following a half-asleep 4 AM encounter with Motörhead’s “Ace of Spades” during which he felt his late old acquaintance Lemmy urging him to get his ass back out there. It’s really no more outlandish than anything else in his career—including his final attempt at a Bauhaus reunion, which ended fairly decisively after the 2008 album Go Away White (Cooking Vinyl).…
          The Biggest Dravid Myth   
Rahul Dravid has retired. The end of an era. A lot is being written about him, and will be written about him. I am not interested in writing a comprehensive tribute to his illustrious career. I want to address the biggest Dravid myth that keeps cropping up in most tributes.

In an otherwise well-written article on Dravid at The Guardian, Rob Smyth writes

Though Dravid was technically beautiful, his often weary face
betrayed the fact that batting rarely came easy to him. He did not
have the brutal audacity of Virender Sehwag, the poetic elegance of
Laxman, the unfathomable, enduring genius of Tendulkar or the sublime
cover drive of Ganguly.


I could not disagree more. Dravid had loads of natural flair, and all this talk of his technique trumping all else, making him out to be a dour but determined grifter is the result of cricket fans wanting to neatly pigeonhole batsmen into pre-conceived slots. Lazy cricket fans think of those slots as Richards or Boycott, and put Dravid quite unfairly in the Boycott slot. I also think his "technique" was vastly exaggerated, and is the result of people forgetting what the copybook actually says and equating a slow scoring rate and a solid defense with textbook technique.

I am not saying he was a technique maverick and mostly freakish natural ability like Laxman or Sehwag. But his success wasn't all technique or even mostly technique. He had a few shots, especially in the 90s, that would have made an orthodox coach cringe, but looked absolutely beautiful. His drives square of the wicket on the off side were essentially similar to Sehwag's - no foot movement, and taking a chance against balls in or just outside the corridor of uncertainty, and relying mainly on balance and hand-eye co-ordination. Most other batsmen most of the times would have nicked those to slips or scooped them to gully. He got away with those shots, with a few lives during his 148 in SA and 190 in NZ in his early years. But he batted pretty much the same way in Aus in 99 and failed miserably, because luck wasn't on his side. His swivel pull shots looked beautiful too, but he very often fetched balls way outside the off stump line, something a technical coach would have been aghast at. I even remember him losing his wicket, when very close to a century, to Greg Blewett of all people, to such a pull shot. He often played almost compulsively against the spin, something that got him into trouble against Shane Warne for a while, because Warne's line was often so far away from the stumps. But helped him attack other spinners with relative ease.

And his timing was phenomenal! That was sheer natural talent. I remember watching him once against Pakistan, when he had let his hair down by his standards and was going for his shot. Orgasmic batting that was! I remember texting Amit Varma that this was the most beautiful attacking innings I had ever seen him play. It was his 110 in the 1st innings against Pakistan at Eden Gardens in 2005. He truly must have been at the top of his game, because he followed it up with a vital century in the 2nd innings. But that 110 was REALLY enthralling to watch! Dravid playing purely on instinct, without inordinate fear of losing his wicket,

The thing is, Dravid curbed his natural flair more than the average natural flair Indian batsman. He defended and played it safe more often than he needed to. Not that there's anything wrong with that. That helped him convert several possible 75 off 110 balls into 125 off 250 balls. And his "technique" evolved through the years, like any quality batsman's technique should. He consciously became more solid in defense as the years went by. Often exactly when the team needed him to, but also occasionally when him playing with gay abandon would've given us a better result. So the only reason Dravid is seen as this guy to whom "batting didn't come easy", is that he consciously cut down on his easy shots in the 2000s, when he was at his peak. I know he himself has said that batting didn't come easy to him. But that might have to do with his own lofty standards of ease and strict quality control when it came to shots, than anything else. And it made perfect sense, given that he was in the same team as Sehwag, Tendulkar, and Laxman for those years. With all those aggressive stroke makers in the team, it made sense for him to be the circumspect one.

But batting did come easily to him. He just chose, almost always, to not give in to his natural instincts, and instead relied on his judgment. But the rare occasion when he did give in to his instincts could be brutal. I remember watching with awe an ODI against New Zealand back during my MBA days (2003 or so) when he came out to bat in the slog overs after centuries by Sachin and Sehwag. He absolutely mauled the Kiwi bowling line-up and got to a half-century in 24 balls or so. The friends I was watching the match with kept saying "Who is this guy? this isn't Dravid!" And my response was, "this IS the real Dravid. He just chooses not to be that most of the time."

To sum it up, I think "Though Dravid was technically beautiful, his often weary face betrayed the fact that batting rarely came easy to him." is IMHO the worst and most inaccurate insult you can heap on Dravid on the day of his retirement.

          Blu-Ray Review | "Ugetsu"   
I first encountered Kenji Mizoguchi's Ugetsu when I was a sophomore in college, sometime around 2005. While I had been interested in film for years already, college really helped expand my horizons. I was just beginning to take classes for my film studies minor, and my school library was stocked full of Criterion DVDs. I was in heaven.

I was unfamiliar with Mizoguchi at that point in my life. I had no knowledge of his silent films, or early social dramas like Sisters of the Gion and Osaka Elegy (something I have remedied in subsequent years). But Ugetsu was one of those rare films that immediately became one of my all-time favorites. I was in awe of Mizoguchi's craft, and it made me hungry for more.

Ugetsu came at the peak of Mizoguchi's career - he won the Golden Lion three years in a row for The Life of Oharu (1952), Ugetsu (1953), and Sansho the Bailiff (1954), a trio of masterpieces that showcase a consummate artist at the height of his powers. For this reviewer, however, Mizoguchi never topped Ugetsu, a haunting, supernatural love story that is as beautiful as it is tragic.


The film is a combination of Japanese ghost stories, one about an aspiring samurai who forsakes his family to pursue his dream, leaving his wife to take up prostitution to make ends meet. The other is a potter fleeing war with his family, who is seduced by a mysterious noble woman who turns out to be a ghost. Released eight years after the end of WWII, Ugetsu is as much a cautionary tale as it is a medieval legend.  Weary and plagued by war, these peasants give in to lust and greed, seeking a better life but ultimately waylaid by their own desires. Mizoguchi explores their fate through mesmerizing long takes and a quiet, eerie atmosphere, awash in fog and foreboding. Pay close attention to where he places his camera - unblinking, never judging, but always displaying a deep compassion for its characters humanity. The first time I saw Ugetsu, I wept profusely. Yet even in its tragedy, Mizoguchi finds a strange and otherworldly beauty.  Its use of the supernatural almost feels more metaphorical than literal - representing a man always chasing dreams rather than paying attention to what is right in front of him.

Ugetsu is a masterpiece. Not just one of the finest examples of Japanese cinema, but one of the all time classics. Mizoguchi's craftsmanship remains unparalleled, providing a deep and powerful exploration of human folly that achieves an almost mystical status. Like watching an ancient folktale being born right before our eyes, it remains one of cinema's most uniquely beautiful experiences. The long-awaited Criterion Blu-Ray adds no special features to the original 2005 DVD, but the new 4K restoration is absolutely breathtaking, and worth the upgrade for any fan of the film or the filmmaker. While Criterion has faithfully released Blu-Ray editions of Sansho, Oharu, and The Story of the Last Chrysanthemum, in recent years, the arrival of an HD transfer of his greatest work is cause for celebration.

          Thorsten Koehne: Eden's Curse to release 'Revisited' CD and DVD package!   

Eden's Curse to release 'Revisited' CD & DVD package!

To celebrate the tenth anniversary of their debut album, Eden's Curse will release 'Revisited' - a two disc set including the Debut Album Re-Recorded in it's entirety and a bonus DVD 'Live In Glasgow - The Official Bootleg' - on 25th August 2017 worldwide via AFM Records.

Bassist Paul Logue explains: "The first album really was the foundation for all that was to follow and ever since Nikola joined the band we have been inundated with fan requests to re-record the older material and whilst it would be great fun, it would also be the same amount of work as recording a brand new album. In actual fact, that is one of the main reasons we recorded the live album, 'Live With The Curse', so the fans could hear Nikola's voice on the older songs. However, it did not stop the flow of requests - in fact it made it worse! So, with this pivotal tenth anniversary coming up, we thought it would be a good idea to do it and AFM agreed. It's turned out really great and given the older songs that little bit of freshness. It's not to out-do what went before but to pay homage to a very important record in our career".

The debut re-recordings were mixed by Pete Newdeck (Eden's Curse, Tainted Nation, Grim Reaper) & Mastered by Harry Hess (Harem Scarem).

Coupled with the re-recorded debut album is the 'Live In Glasgow - Official Bootleg DVD' which is the 'Live With The Curse' live album recording show in it's entirety. Filmed at The Classic Grand in Glasgow on 28th November 2014, the release mark's the band first official live DVD release, albeit in a bootleg form. "The footage is absolutely excellent" states bassist Logue. "We did not intend to film a DVD, but the audio recording company brought two cameras along to capture the show and when we saw the results we were really surprised! We put out four videos on You Tube to promote the live album and the fans kept asking to see the full show on DVD. So, here it is! We've called it a 'bootleg' because it wasn't recorded on 6 cameras, e.g one above the drummer and one on the keyboard player - like we would do for a proper DVD release. However, beyond that is looks and sounds great! We WILL do a DVD in the future but in the meantime this give our fans across the world something to enjoy time and time again and it makes 'Revisited' a very special package indeed" he adds.

'Revisited' is the ultimate package for Eden's Curse fans old and new and a fantastic introduction to the band's music. It's a true celebration of the record that started it all, from the guys who carry the legacy forward. Over 60 mins of music and 100 mins of film make 'Revisited' a must have for all Eden's Curse & Melodic Metal fans.

          DO WE LOVE IT: Justin Timberlake's "Suit & Tie" Ft. Jay-Z   

Photobucket

Justin Timberlake is back on his Suit & Tie ish.  He's not letting Robin Thicke be the only blue eyed soul dude in the game right now.  JT has returned to the music game after catering to his movie career for so long.  And we've got his first comeback single, "Suit & Tie" featuring Jay-Z, inside...

Photobucket

“Suit & Tie" featuring JAY Z was written by Justin Timberlake, Timbaland, Shawn Carter, Jerome “J-ROC” Harmon and James Flauntleroy and produced by Timbaland, Justin himself and Jerome “J-ROC” Harmon.

The song is the first release off Timberlake’s forthcoming album, The 20/20 Experience, due out later this year on RCA Records.

Sounds like the newlywed's still got that sound we loved when he first hooked up with Timbaland years ago.  Decide if we love it.  Then read his open letter his fans below.

An Open Letter to you (the fans):

I hope this gets to you the right way. It's the only way I know to do it. Some people may criticize me for the last 3 days. But it was fun, right?? Right?!?! Besides, I'd rather speak directly to all of you. And, who can knock me for having a little bit of fun with it?

Well... No more teasing. Although, it was A LOT of fun. (Did I mention that I'm having fun with this?? Ha!)

*Makes a serious face*

So, here goes:

This year is an exciting one for me. As you probably have heard through the "grapevine," I'm gearing up for a big 2013.

Back in June of last year, I quietly started working on what is now, my next journey with that thing I love called MUSIC.

The inspiration for this really came out of the blue and to be honest, I didn't expect anything out of it. I just went into the studio and started playing around with some sounds and songs. It was probably the best time I've had in my career... Just creating with no rules and/or end goal in mind and really enjoying the process.

What I came up with is something I couldn't be more excited about! It is full of inspiration that I grew up listening to and some newfound muses that I've discovered along the way.

I'm calling it "The 20/20 Experience," and it's coming out this year.

I hope you enjoy listening to it as much as I enjoyed making it.

That's all I'm giving you for now... I know, I know! Again, with the teasing!!!

Get ready. This is going to be fun (well, at least it is for me). 

The song is available on iTunes today.

          Justin Bieber Ripe For Spoofing, 'Stevie TV' Star Says   

'Guys are like, 'I don't know what it is, but you're really hot,' comedian Stevie Ryan says of playing the teen superstar on VH1 show.
By Christina Garibaldi

<P>Stevie Ryan may make fun of <a href="http://www.mtv.com/music/artist/bieber_justin/artist.jhtml">Justin Bieber</a> on her new VH1 show <a href="http://www.vh1.com/shows/stevie_tv/series.jhtml" target="_blank">"Stevie TV,"</a> but the actress and the pop star actually have something cool in common: They were both discovered on YouTube. </P><P> </P><P>Ryan began her career impersonating celebrities and creating her own characters on her YouTube <a href="http://www.youtube.com/user/stevieryan" target="_blank">channel</a> and instantly became an Internet star. Now the 26-year-old comedian gets to do her routines on VH1, portraying some of today's biggest celebs and reality TV stars. </P><P> </P><P><embed src="http://media.mtvnservices.com/mgid:uma:video:mtv.com:752244/cp~vid%3D752244%26uri%3Dmgid%3Auma%3Avideo%3Amtv.com%3A752244" width="460" height="260" type="application/x-shockwave-flash" allowFullScreen="true" allowScriptAccess="always" base="."></embed> </P><P> </P><P>"It's just a female's perspective on pop culture, really, at least that's the way I think about it," Ryan told MTV News on Tuesday. "It's really just kind of making fun of pop culture, what's happening in it, just making fun of these celebrities that are rewarded for bad behavior." </P><P> </P><P>So far on "Stevie TV," Ryan has created a music video that mocks <a href="http://www.mtv.com/music/artist/perry_katy/artist.jhtml">Katy Perry</a>'s "Last Friday Night (T.G.I.F)," gotten into character as <a href="http://www.mtv.com/music/artist/lady_gaga/artist.jhtml">Lady Gaga</a> and done some cross-dressing to get into one of her favorite roles, Justin Bieber. </P><P> </P><P>Ryan explained that Bieber has been the most fun to play "because I always tell everybody how guys and girls always like me when I'm Justin Bieber. ... Girls are like, 'You're so cute, like, are you really a <i>girl</i>?' And then guys are like, 'I don't know what it is, but you're really hot.' But I really like playing everybody," she laughed. </P><P> </P><P>And though she may poke fun at celebrities, Ryan said she's really a fan of most of the stars ... except maybe one. </P><P> </P><P>"I just thought, 'What a great way to kind of show that this is what the younger generation is growing up with, that who little girls like, is Kim Kardashian,' " Ryan said. "It's just observing these weird behaviors and finding a place for them that makes sense because you can always make fun of Kim Kardashian &#8212; she has a big butt, she made a sex tape &#8212; but at the same time you have to step back and look at the big picture; people are actually wanting to be like this." </P><P> </P><P>As for future episodes, Ryan really wants to impersonate a certain Young Money rapper. "I would like to do <a href="http://www.mtv.com/music/artist/minaj__nicki/artist.jhtml">Nicki Minaj,"</a> Ryan revealed. "There's nothing that I want to make fun of about her, because I'm obsessed with her and I really, really love her." </P><P> </P><P>Asked if she's gotten any backlash yet for the sometimes harsh jokes on her show, Ryan said she hasn't, but she's ready if it comes her way. </P><P> </P><P>"It hasn't happened before and I'd give a flying f--- about what any of them have to say," Ryan said. "Because I'm just doing my job just like they are and so whatever, if anyone has anything to say, bring it!" </P><P> </P><P><a href="http://www.vh1.com/shows/stevie_tv/series.jhtml" target="_blank">"Stevie TV"</a> airs Sundays at 11 p.m. ET on VH1. </P><P> </P><P><i>What do you think of "Stevie TV"?

          What I've been up to....   

So basically over the summer I was doing an internship with a freelance fashion stylist called Kylie Griffiths.  For one of my units at university I had to carry out an internship, the work experience had to be within the field of work we wish to pursue when we finish uni. It was a great experience and I learnt a lot about the styling process during my time there, some days were good and some were bad. I worked closely with PR companies when dealing with returns and pick ups and it really widened my knowledge on how PR companies work, - although having taken a PR unit at university you really don’t learn the works until you do it first hand! Some of the highlights of my internship was styling Lucy from Towie for a shoot with FHM, the location house which was used was absolutely amazing! I have never been in such a beautiful house, - to be honest both houses on both shoots were amazing, it really gave me something to work towards.Overall I had a great time and it really helped me decide what I want to do as a career when I’ve finished uni, I definitely still want to pursue my dreams of being a stylist, but I have also decided I want to venture down the route of buying and I am steering towards this area and will be demonstrated within my final major project. I’m now on the hunt for internships/work experience related to this area, looking at trend forecasting and buying 
opportunities.

 










          90s Fashion Photoshoot   


Hi!
As I posted last week, I did a photoshoot for my photography project at university. I have based it on 90s fashion as it is one of the popular trends this season, although I’m studying a photography based course I have explored many other avenues within the fashion industry those which include; fashion marketing, fashion styling, fashion PR etc. I have found my passion which is fashion styling and it is something which I hope to pursue as a career in the future, I began my course with dreams of being a photographer but I have found a deeper passion elsewhere. My university course is photography based so therefore I have to photograph things (obviously lol), this is a side to the course that I once loved but I find styling much more enjoyable. In this project I have styled and photographed my 90s shoot, as a lover of the 90s era I have played close attention to what the fashion and trends were like back in the day, however modernising it in some areas. My fashion story is based on a teenage girl up to no good, smoking and drinking. I’m unsure on the editorial title that I’m going to use however I’m toying with the name ‘Teenage dirt bag’, but as I said I’m still unsure so I’m going to do some brainstorms regarding this. I have selected 8 images from my shoot, I have loads more but I don't want to bog it down with loads of photographs. The photography is very simple, I photographed it on film also as I wanted to give my images the old skool feel.









          Panthers 2017 Season Opener Countdown: 69 Days to Go   
We continue our Carolina Panthers roster countdown with center Tyler Larsen. 69 days to go for NFL football! Let’s take a look at one of the nicer stories of 2016. Bio Height: 6’ 4” Weight: 325 lbs Age: 25 Experience: 2 seasons College: Utah State Career Tyler Larsen was an interesting revelation in 2016, but let’s start with how he got here. Back in 2014, Larsen entered the league as an undrafted free agent with Miami. He was waived in August, and didn’t catch on anywhere until the Redskins picked him up in February of 2015. They waived him just before the regular season started, and once again he didn’t find a spot until after it ended. Carolina signed him in January of 2016, and he stayed on the roster until October. He didn’t play and ended up being waived so he could be added to the practice squad. Then, the rash of injuries that plagued the 2016 offensive line struck. Ryan Kalil went down, Gino Gradkowski soon followed. Mike Remmers was somebody the Panthers felt could play c

          Working from Home - Tips to Success   
Society has gone through many seasons to get us to where we are today. There was a time when women were expected to stay in the home and raise the children, while all the finances were earned by the men of the house. Then came the two working parent homes. Economics made it important to have a second income and women wanted to branch out and use their minds and express themselves beyond that of their domestic duties. 

Today, more mothers are making a change that allows them to have careers and be stay-at-home mothers. This is truly the best of both worlds. In making this transition, they can use their talents to earn a living and be accessible for their children and completely in tune with their lives. But, how did they manage? What steps did they take?




E-Commerce

E-Commerce is the term used for transactions performed on a computer over the internet. Most people think of it as making an online purchase. But E-commerce is also a tool that the smart business person uses to conduct all kinds of business transactions.

There are more than a few jobs that can be done online without the need to travel to an office. This includes business writing, sales, marketing, customer support, order entry and warranty processing. A transcriptionist can work from their home office. Research is often done off site. 

In order to be competitive in the e-commerce market, you will need to have some interesting e-commerce strategies. You need to do your homework and be ready to excel in the area, thus offering something others do not. 

You will need a website and a platform to use in business. You will need to identify your niche and be ready to market it. It is easy to be selective and to hone in on your skills. However, you need to stick with a platform such as WordPress or Blogger - these are very popular platforms which thousands of companies already use. 



Making time for you


One thing stay-at-home parents sometimes complain about, is between their work and raising the children they have little time for themselves. This leads to burnout. Your children need activities that do not include you, and you need time for just your own needs. It is healthy and fun to put your children in endeavours such as sport or dance. 

Your child goes to their lessons which helps teach them self-control, grace, style, and discipline. It also gives them goals and teaches them how to work toward them. Encourage them to push themselves. Show excitement when you select costumes for dance recitals and praise them for reaching milestones. 

As you can see, it takes some effort and time to carve out the life you want where you can be a hands-on parent and still maintain a career and life of your own. The rewards are immeasurable. Your child will benefit from this more than anything else you can do for them. After all, you are their biggest fan and you are showing them that they are a top priority. At the same time, you are sending a message, that a person can have the life they want if they are willing to do the work.

CT Voices for Children is absolutely right about CT budget situation

Image result for CT Voices for Children


Statement from CT Voices June 30, 2017;
Connecticut Voices for Children strongly believes that a fiscally responsible and stable state budget is the cornerstone for equitable economic growth. The only way to build a strong foundation for long-term inclusive economic prosperity is having a state government with solid finances that is willing and able to support long-term strategies for economic growth and equitable opportunity.
Connecticut’s current fiscal crisis is the result of years of short-term budget thinking and a failure to address our state’s economic challenges. During the past few months, Connecticut policymakers have struggled with the daunting task of closing a budget gap not of their own making. After years of short-term fixes, they are now confronted with a harsh fiscal reality with no easy solutions.
As the Governor and the Legislature go back to the drawing board this special session, we urge them to ground their work in an understanding of the economic, demographic, and political changes which have created today’s ever-growing challenge.
The state budget is the clearest statement of Connecticut’s policy priorities. Working from our strengths, and with the courage to address our weaknesses, we can build a more inclusive economy that enables all families to thrive, provides quality education for all children from cradle to career, and provides the support services necessary to ensure that no child is left behind.
To achieve these priorities, the Governor and General Assembly must seek a balanced approach that combines smart, strategic spending in key budget priorities with tax reforms that assure fairness, stability, predictability, and adequacy. Connecticut needs a stable, responsible budget, with real structural reforms, rejecting the crisis-driven, short-term approach that has marked state fiscal policy for years. Legislators should create a stable revenue stream by modernizing Connecticut’s tax structure to reflect its changing economy, which is increasingly built on services rather than goods. This will require combining bold revenue reforms with a strategic rethinking of budget priorities that include a renewed willingness for forward-looking investments in education, workforce development, and health.
We understand that this shift will not be easy; Connecticut’s fiscal woes are deep, and fixing them will require making many hard decisions. Connecticut Voices for Children believes, however, that working together we can reach a balanced budget that ensures that our state is an attractive place to find a job, start a business, and raise a family. It is time for everyone that cares about the future of our state to set our differences aside and work towards this common goal.CT Voices for Children is absolutely right about CT budget situation - Wait What?:

Student Data Deletion Day - Wouldn't That Be Great

Image result for Deleting data animated gif


From Education Week:

Bradley Shear is a lawyer who focuses on digital privacy and social media. 
He's also the father of two elementary-aged children who attend the public schools in Maryland's Montgomery County. 

A little over a year ago, Shear says, the focus of his professional life became an intensely personal concern, as well.

"I got a phone call from my son's teacher, who said he had performed an internet search for inappropriate content on a school-issued Chromebook," Shear said in an interview. "It got me thinking about all the data being collected about kids, and whether it will ever be deleted.
From Shear's blog, Shear on Social Media Law:

Every time our kids may be admonished for talking out of turn or texting in class they may receive a permanent demerit in Class Dojo.  In the near future, classrooms may be filled with cameras and other tracking technologies that also analyze our kids every interaction with their teachers and class mates. This is not some type of crazy prediction; in China, this Orwellian future is already a reality.

Multiple companies in the educational technology space have intentionally misled students, parents, teachers, administrators, and lawmakers about how they are using the personal data they are collecting about our kids in school. For example, Google was caught intentionally scanning student emails for advertising and other troubling purposes despite prior promises it was not.  ConnectEDU tried to sell personal student data for profit when it went bankrupt despite promising not to do so.* Edmodo, another educational technology company, was recently caught surreptitiously tracking students online to monetize their web surfing habits despite promises to the contrary.

As a parent and privacy advocate, I have come to the realization that more

Legislature to Pass Budget Today

 I was actually going to give you all kinds of links and updates but here's all you really need to know - the Dems caved, schools will not be fully-funded and property-rich areas will pay for most of the increases. 


Schools will get $7.3B more over the next four years.  This is not enough and is likely to not pass judicial muster for fully funding schools.  After this budget is passed, the Supreme Court will review the part that addresses McCleary and allow the plaintiffs to give their thoughts.  Any ruling on this issue would probably come at the end of the summer.

Tweet
Robert Cruinkshank
Last year, McCleary plaintiffs said $5.6 billion needed just for next school year. $7.3b over 4 years won't cut it 

- Property taxes will go up in Seattle/King County - by a lot. 
Tweet
Joe O'Sullivan
Rough numbers, Seattle will see $440/yr increase in property taxes for average house, Ranker says
-There will be a cap on the per dollar amount that local levies can ask for.

From Representative Zack Hutchins:
Initiative 1351
Staffing enrichments provided in the prototypical funding formula under Initiative 1351 are recodified in a different chapter of the RCWs. If additional staffing units are funded in future operating budgets, those units will then become a part of basic education.

Accountability
By 2019-20, school districts must provide separate accounting of state and local revenues and expenditures data. The State Auditor must conduct regular financial audits to ensure districts are using local revenues in compliance with this act. 

Categorical programs
·         Career and Technical Education and Skills Center Programs’ class sizes reduced
·         Highly Capable Program allocation increased from 2.314 to 5 percent of a district’s enrollment
·         Additional Learning Assistance Program allocation for high poverty schools
·         Special Education allocation increased from 12.7 to 13.5 percent of a district’s enrollment
·         Increased Transitional Bilingual Program instruction in middle and high schools by two hours

Another tax change in deal: B&O tax rate for all manufacturing comes down to Boeing's preferential rate, Ranker says. 

Because much of the McCleary plan doesn't kick in for some time, Billig said lawmakers can tweak things if problems w/ plan.

GOING TO THE SOURCE, A TEACHER’S THOUGHTS ON TEACHER RETENTION.

Image result for TEACHER RETENTION




 On occasion I have been blessed to have others willing to share their thoughts and experiences with me. As often as permissible I am honored to share these thoughts and experiences with you.

It’s no secret that I have grave concerns about the teaching profession. A decade ago I became involved in educational issues because my wife was working on attaining her Master Degree in education in preparation for entering the teaching profession at the same time as Teach For America was feeding college grads with 6 weeks of prep time into the system. That didn’t sit right with me. Over the years I’ve watched MNPS hemorrhage teachers and do little to stem the bleeding. The trend is not isolated to local entities either. Nationally we are beginning to grapple with a shortage of teachers at the same time it’s generally acknowledged that a quality teacher is the most important element of a child’s education. At some point substantial steps need to be taken.
Mary Jo Cramb is a local teacher and an exceptional writer who read one of my posts last year and has been doing her own thinking on the subject. I am grateful that she has chosen Dad Gone Wild as a vehicle to share those thoughts.
I loved TC Weber’s blog post on teacher retention from last year. He’s a parent who stands up for teachers, and that is so important because too often people pretend that the interests of these two groups are opposed, when they are not. Everything he says here is true. The profession has been devalued, and we do need a seat at the table. But there’s one aspect of the issue that TC missed entirely: a gender analysis.
Teaching is a female dominated profession.
Because it is a profession dominated by women, making teaching more family-friendly will improve retention. School districts aren’t just competing with other districts or other professions for teachers. They’re also competing with babies.
Teachers drop out of the profession very quickly in the first five years or so. Assuming most new teachers begin their career soon after graduating college, this drop-off coincides almost perfectly with the average age of first childbirth for GOING TO THE SOURCE, A TEACHER’S THOUGHTS ON TEACHER RETENTION. « Dad Gone Wild:

          Our LIMU Experience: Erica & Tyler Phillips, Entrepreneurs   

LIMUNATION_2017_Story_Slider_EricatylerPhillips

We are Erica and Tyler Philips, and this is our LIMU Experience.

 
Tyler and I aren’t anything special. We were just your typical young, married couple living paycheck to paycheck. We aren’t the type of people you see in magazines, leading a crusade to change the world, or the type of people who go on lavish vacations while driving fancy cars. Honestly, you wouldn’t really imagine us doing anything besides hanging a little vinyl siding and teaching math. We were okay, but we were young, limited and stuck.
 
Tyler worked with his dad at their family vinyl siding business and tried to save every penny he made. He liked working with his dad, but knew there had to be a better way to make money than breaking his back. His dad would often tell him, “The only way you’ll get a raise is if you get a taller ladder.”
 
I loved my students and I loved teaching, but it seemed like I was always stretched too thin. Not enough time, money, freedom or support. I was frustrated because I was in a job with no room for growth. It didn’t matter how hard I worked, how early I arrived, how late I stayed or how well my students performed. I was still paid the same as everyone else around me despite my efforts. I felt discouraged and tired of getting paid what someone else thought I was worth.
 
We felt trapped, like mice on a wheel. After earning two college degrees and gaining respectable jobs, we woke up one morning and realized we had less than $500 in savings. So, we played the never-ending cycle of credit as we placed our vacation on a credit card and crossed our fingers that we would have it paid off by Christmas. We didn’t realize we had other options.
 
Our LIMU Experience began in 2009 after nine months of avoiding and hiding from our very persistent friends, neighbors and co-workers. But after hearing what LIMU had done for their family through the whole LIMU Experience , we were in! We finally had some hope and with the success they were having, we thought, “Why not us?” Our first party had a nice turnout, with 15 of our closest friends, and all 15 shot us down.
 
But instead of going to bed that night discouraged, we looked at each other and said, “Now it’s time to prove them wrong.” Even without our closest friends, we still hit 5K in 60 days! Our fourth month in, we made more working part time with LIMU than Tyler did full time in construction. Now, we really believed. Within six months, we were qualified for a black BMW and had four others on our team that qualified as well!
 
That December, we attended our first LIMU LIVE! event, and that changed our business forever. We had two grand prize winners on our team at that first event, and there’s nothing better than seeing people you love and care about winning big! LIMU LIVE! is a game changer and I’m proud to say we’ve never missed an event since. The LIMU LIVE! events sparked something in us and in 90 days, we went from 20K to 100K!
 
When we hit 100K, Tyler retired from the construction industry on his 27th birthday. That following month, I was named Lincoln Parish Middle School Teacher of the Year and was awarded a plaque. Here I was, driving to my teaching job in a car paid for by a part-time LIMU opportunity that paid more than my regular teaching job. I was even awarded a $10,000 bonus check by LIMU! So, after a few months of prayer and contemplation, I decided to turn my part-time LIMU opportunity into my full-time career. Thanks to LIMU, we were retired from teaching and construction before we turned 30!
 
We’ve experienced lots of ups and downs, peaks and valleys. We had people on our team that flat out gave up on themselves. The hardest reality we had to face was pouring all of our time, energy and soul into people who ultimately gave up on themselves too soon. But there is nothing better than seeing those that don’t give up win big! It is such a joy to be able to help people achieve their goals and dreams through the LIMU Experience!
 
Now, because of the LIMU Experience, we’ve been featured in Success from Home Magazine and drive a fancy BMW convertible! We’ve been on several once-in-a-lifetime vacations and have checked many things off our bucket list! We get to team up with incredible people daily as we pursue “unfinished business” and help others be more.

Thanks to LIMU, we both get to be stay-at-home parents while working hard at something that matters.

Last year we welcomed our daughter into this world on November 3. With all the things to think about while raising a baby, do you know the one thing we don’t have to worry about? Money! More importantly, guess what else we don’t have to worry about? Time! You can always make more money, but you can’t make more time.
 
Recently, one of the most influential men in my life left this world to spend eternity in heaven. He is very missed, but I’m so thankful for the time I was able to spend with him during his last few weeks on Earth. We visited every single day, shared our love and his youngest great-granddaughter were able to see him regularly.
 
Not a day goes by that we don’t drink the LIMU products! I lost 30 pounds in a four-month period with the LIMU LEAN challenge. Looking back on our last seven years, I wouldn’t change a bit of our journey for anything. I am who I am today because of LIMU. LIMU gave us the opportunity to get out of our comfort zone, and for that we are so grateful to Gary Raser, our leaders, our team and all of LIMU Nation.
 
We are Tyler and Erica Phillips, and we are LIMU!

          NCSS Leadership Conference Notes   
Accessing Funds from the American Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA)
Presented by Beth Ratway

The meeting began with an introduction of the attendees and discussion of how states are connecting internally.

Money is currently available through SFSF, Race to the Top, SIG, i3, ED Tech, TIF, SLDA, and TQP. All of these run through IDEA and Title I.

The types of questions social studies councils should be seeking to answer include:

  • How do standards and assessment impact your work?
  • How can you use data to improve the work of your council?

The currently education landscape focuses on ARRA, I3, NCLB, and 21st Century Skills.

ARRA: 4 Assurances expected of those seeking to procure funding

  • Support effective teachers and school leaders
  • Improve the use of data (Data systems: fully implementing a statewide longitudinal data system, accessing and using state data, and using data to improve instruction)
  • Complete the implementation of high standards and high-quality assessments
  • Turn around persistently low-performing schools, whole-school reform, and targeted approaches to reform.

In addition, states should be focused on developing and adopting common standards, developing and implementing common, high-quality assessments, supporting transition to enhanced standards and high quality assessments.

The key is to find the intersecting nodes for standards and assessments, teacher and leadership effectiveness, support for struggling schools, and _____.

Race to the Top Funds go to state educational agencies, school improvement grants, investing in innovation funds, educational technology, teacher incentive fund, and statewide data system. As social studies councils, the focus should probably be the i3 (Investing in Innovation Fund)Funds (a part of the third phase of funding. For this grant, the interest is in improving student achievement or student growth from high-need students and promoting school readiness. Only LEAs or non-profit organizations can get this in collaboration with an LEA.

Funding focuses on three levels: development of research-based theories ($5 m award), validation (up to $30 m award), and scale-up ($50 m award).

To receive the grant, there must be 20% private sector funding, conduct independent program evaluation, cooperate with technical assistants, etc.

Other interested topics include improving early learning outcomes, supporting college access and success, assisting ELL and disabled students, serve schools in rural LEAs. If applications address these issues, they will receive preference.

All proposals should include partnerships (e.g., with other LEAs, other social studies councils).

Beth recommended the following resource for assessing higher level thinking objectives: Authentic Intellectual Work by Ken Newman (a way to look at depth of knowledge and other educational outcomes)

ARRA grants should be in the million dollar range, the grants should be pretty competitive, and they will probably be due around the spring/ summer.


Legislative Briefing

Presented by Della Cronin

Some of the concepts that appeal to Secretary Duncan are charter school and pay for performance. The interest on Capitol Hill, however, has been on health care, not education. Duncan has stated publicly that NCLB has its good and bad points and noted that we have had a narrowing of the curriculum as a result of the legislation.

There appears to be a focus on preparing children in early childhood as a way to support the overall goal of having all students graduate from high school and increase college enrollments.

There is a bill from Rockefeller that would provide funds to states to support 21st century learning. Senator Kennedy and Senator Alexander introduced a bill that would expand the sample size for the NAEP civics exam and place an emphasis on history assessments. Nothing is currently moving out of the re-authorization process.

There appear to be concerns about equity and access in education. The rural areas and inner-city schools appear to facing the brunt of America's contemporary financial status.

Make sure when coupling terms, we include citizenship (e.g., "College, Career, and Citizenship").

Come back to our site and let's have a conversation about this episode in the comments section: http://allearsenglish.com/aee-293-how-to-learn-english-the-way-a-child-learns-to-walk/

 

Today is a Deep Thoughts Thursday and we have an inspiring quote for you!

 

Let’s talk about success.

 

 

 

Here is the quote:

 

“Success consists of going from failure to failure without loss of enthusiasm.”

 

-Winston Churchill

 

 

We can apply this quote to a lot of different aspects of our lives like learning English, dating, and our career paths.

 

We have to keep going and take on new challenges with a positive attitude even if we have failed many times in the past.

 

Try to avoid feeling bitter when you take on a challenge and try again.

 

 

 

What do you think about this quote?

 

Do you keep your heart open and stay enthusiastic when you try again with something?

          AEE 278: Are You Committing One of these Four American Workplace Taboos?   

Are you avoiding taboos in the American workplace?

Today, Lindsay and Michelle discuss the top taboos to look out for in American workplace culture!

 

A taboo is something that is improper or unacceptable based on culture or region.  Different companies might have their own taboos, but most American workplaces probably have many of the same ones.

An article by Barbara Mason outlines the biggest of these taboos.  Here are a few of them, and how to avoid them:

  • Spreading rumors: To spread a rumor is to make up an untrue story about somebody, and tell it to others.  Americans tend to look down on people who do this.  If you want to be trusted and have positive relationships, avoid gossip!
  • Taking credit for another’s work: This means telling others that you did the work or achieved a success when, in fact, somebody else did.  Again, Americans won’t trust anybody suspected of doing this, so don’t do it.
  • Falling asleep at work: It may not be natural to be completely energized for 8 straight hours, but at minimum your boss will expect you to be awake.  Try taking a break from your desk, going for a short walk or stepping outside to refresh yourself.
  • Lying about an academic background: Honesty is very important to American bosses.  If you lie about your academic background, you’re likely to be fired when you get caught. The best thing to do is to present the academic background that you do have in the best possible way.

 

What are the top workplace taboos where you live?

          AEE 250: 3 Ways to Raise a Bilingual Child with Bilingual Avenue Host Marianna Du Bosq   

How do you raise a bilingual child?

Today, Lindsay chats with Marianna Du Bosq, a bilingual educator who has three ways to help you raise your child to speak more than one language!

 

The benefits of raising a bilingual child are many.  Not only will knowing more than one language open career opportunities for the child when they grow up, research is also finding significant positive cognitive advantages to having a bilingual brain.

 

Marianna believes bilingualism (and even tri-lingualism) is definitely achievable if parents are focused enough.  Here are Marianna’s three main points to focus on:

Expose your children to quality language input.  Read books, or even use audio books.  This way, your child is hearing voices other than those of their parents.

Create a need to use the language. If the child doesn’t have to use the language to get what they want, they’re naturally going to fall back on using the dominant language.  Ask your family members help by only speaking one language or the other.

Keep it fun! Children will be far more involved in the language if they are doing the kinds of things they already love to do.

 

Are you a parent interested in raising bilingual children?

Share your thoughts or experiences in the comments section below!

 

Marianna Du Bosq is a bilingual mother, former bilingual educator, and lifetime language learner.  She is the host of the Bilingual Avenue podcast and blog where she interviews parents and experts raising and teaching multilingual children, and provides an excellent collection of tips and strategies for anyone choosing this journey.

She is originally from Venezuela, has spent the last twenty years in the United States, and is currently on a one year adventure in the Black Forest in Germany with her husband and two year old daughter.

Come back to our site for more great tips

Don’t assume that you can’t have everything in life. A lot of times, you might be surprised what you can get by just asking.

A good strategy is to find ways to negotiate a win-win situation out of something you want.  Everything is negotiable and nothing is set in stone.

Of course, what you’re asking for has to be reasonable, and you need to be able to support your request. If you are asking for something fair and not too bold, you may be surprised to get what you want.  And if not, the very worst that can happen is you receive a No!

          Marshall Kent Leads Nine Players Set for Grand Casino Hotel & Resort PBA Oklahoma Open Finals   

Three-time PBA Tour titlist Marshall Kent of Yakima, Wash., averaged 227 over four rounds on different lane conditions to lead a field of nine players who advanced to this weekend’s stepladder finals of the Grand Casino Hotel & Resort PBA Oklahoma Open.

ESPN’s live coverage begins Saturday at noon CDT (1 p.m. ET) from the Grand Hotel Event Center when qualifiers five through nine will compete on two specially-installed lanes with the winner advancing to the no. 5 qualifying position who will join the tournament’s top four qualifiers for Sunday’s stepladder finals telecast which also gets underway at noon local time.

Kent compiled a 7,278 32-game pinfall total bowled on PBA’s 32-foot Wolf, 40-foot Bear, 52-foot Badger and 44-foot Oklahoma Open lane condition patterns over the four days of qualifying at the FireLake Bowling Center. He bowled games of 237, 274, 266, 257, 236, 220, 235 and 207 in Friday’s final round on the Oklahoma condition.

IMG_2060Despite starting the tournament with games of 160 and 170 in the first round on the Wolf condition Tuesday, Kent relied on his ability to adjust to quickly rebound.

“I was a little frustrated but I reminded myself it’s a marathon, not a sprint,” he said. “In a tournament like this you have to look at the big picture. I was a little frustrated but I knew I had 30 games to go.

“I think overall my versatility showed in this tournament,” the 24-year-old Kent continued. “I didn’t have a good start but it didn’t worry me.”

As top qualifier, Kent earned the right to select the lane condition pattern for both stepladder telecasts this weekend and has selected the Bear pattern. He does have the option to change the pattern selection after Saturday’s telecast for Sunday’s competition.

“I feel that the Bear pattern is the best pattern for rewarding the player who makes the best shot,” Kent said. “My gut right now is to stick with it for both days.”

Climbing from 28th after the first round and 12th after Thursday’s third round, three-time PBA Player of the Year Jason Belmonte of Australia averaged 256 in the final round to rocket to the no. 2 qualifying position and finish with a 7,208 pinfall. The two-hander will be trying for this third win of the season after winning the USBC Masters and Barbasol PBA Players Championship.

Joining Kent and Belmonte in Sunday’s finals will be no. 3 qualifier three-time Tour winner Rhino Page of Orlando who finished with a 7,191 pinfall and no. 4 qualifier 18-time Tour champion Chris Barnes of Double Oak, Texas, who finished with 7,181.

IMG_2057“I knew the pattern today would be easier than what we had been bowling on,” said Belmonte, who owns 14 career PBA Tour titles. “You still have to execute because pin carry becomes something you have to deal with. I went into this round taking it shot by shot and wasn’t going to be afraid of what was going to happen down lane.”

Players who qualified fifth through ninth bowling in Saturday’s stepladder round to determine the no. 5 qualifier for Sunday’s stepladder finals telecast will be two-time tour winner Thomas Larsen of Denmark, reigning PBA Player of the Year EJ Tackett of Huntington, Ind., Jesper Svensson of Sweden, Tom Smallwood of Saginaw, Mich., and Tom Daugherty of Riverview, Fla.

Trey Ford III, the 16-year-old PBA member from Bartlesville, Okla., fell short of making the top nine by 94 pins finishing 11th with a 6,941 pinfall (216.9 average) to record his highest PBA Tour finish.

          Simone Veil, French abortion pioneer, Birkenau survivor and former President of the European Parliament dies aged 89 - family   
One of the few French postwar politicians to earn near unanimous respect, Simone Veil, has died aged 89. Deported from France by the Nazis aged 16, she survived Birkenau, although her mother and sister perished. On her return to France she embarked upon a career in the law, becoming a magistrate, and in 1956 became the Director of French prisons. Marking a break with her predecessors, she visited many such institutions personally and railed at the primitive, "medieval" conditions she found there. In 1962 she became Minister of civil Affairs, and took a principled stand on adoptions, becoming a pioneer of the idea that a childs' rights should come first, an idea later amplified by Francoise Dolto in her landmark book "The baby is a person". This was her first experience of the brutality of parliamentary debate, and the ingrained sexism of the legislature. Thirteen years later came the key moment in her political career when she forced through, in the teeth of furious opposition form within her own party, the law allowing abortion for the first time in France. It earned her vilification, with her actions being compared to the Nazis, and her home and husband's car were defaced with swastikas. She became a hate figure for the ultra-Catholic far right, which never forgave her. President Giscard d'Estaing chose his Health Minister to lead the centre-right's list for the 1979 European elections, and this led to her becoming the President of the European Parliament. She sat in the assembly until 1993, when she returned to government in France as Prime Minister Eduard Balladur's Social Affairs Minister. A fervent European, in 1998 she become a member of France's Constitutional Court, a position she held until 2007. In 2010 Veil received the supreme accolade that can be awarded to a French public figure, being elected to the Academie Francaise, and took seat 13, previously held by Racine.

It’s really no more outlandish than anything else in his career—including his final attempt at a Bauhaus reunion, which ended fairly decisively after the 2008 album Go Away White (Cooking Vinyl).…
          More on the collision of the USS Fitzgerald   
An opinion from a former Navy Captain:
J.F. Kelly, a retired Navy captain who commanded three ships during his career, wrote in The San Diego Union-Tribune that he was firm in his belief that the majority of the fault of the collision rested with the failure of the destroyer’s crew who was on watch that night:
The damage to the starboard side of the destroyer and the bow of the container ship suggests a crossing situation. The international rules for the prevention of collisions at sea specify that the vessel to starboard (the container ship) is the stand-on vessel and the other ship (the destroyer) is the give-way vessel and is required to stay out of the way of the stand-on vessel.
The give-way ship’s actions are to be timely and deliberate so as to not introduce any doubt as to its intentions. The stand-on vessel is required to maintain course and speed until the risk of collision is deemed no longer to exist or until it becomes apparent that the actions of the give-way vessel alone are not sufficient to avoid a collision, in which case, it is required to take action by turning, slowing or stopping.
But slowing or stopping is difficult and in some cases, virtually impossible for a large merchant ship. By contrast, destroyers are very maneuverable.
Judging from the images of the damage, it’s easy to conclude that the destroyer failed to give way and should be held at fault. But it is premature to jump to any conclusions until the investigation is completed. There may well be fault on both sides.”
That was the assessment of Comrade Misfit, also a former Navy officer.

17 Awards for an Eclectic Selection    

The different juries from the 41st International Animation Film Festival have revealed the winners from Annecy 2017! Amongst the 216 films nominated in the official competition (all categories combined), 17 awards were attributed during the Closing Ceremony on Saturday 17th June.

       

HONORARY CRISTAL

Marcel Jean handed over the Honorary Cristal to Georges Schwizgebel to commemorate his prolific career.

"For the fifth year in a row, the Annecy Festival awarded the Honorary Cristal to a leading figure in the animation world. This year, it’s not only an exceptional filmmaker that we’ve crowned, but a friend as well. The Swiss director Georges Schwizgebel has had his films in competition at the Annecy Festival fourteen times. Georges has been a member of the jury at the Festival twice and two of his shorts, The Ride to the Abyss and 78 Turns, are included in the list of the 100 best animation films that we published in 2006.

Georges Schwizgebel is an animation guru, an artisan of precision and an artist who has inspired many young animators. His style can be described as baroque and swirling, characterised by a confident brushstroke and a resolutely postmodern approach with his relationship to history and art.” Marcel Jean

His film Erlking was screened as his son Louis Schwizgebel-Wang played the piano.

          The 64th Sydney Film Festival Awards On Body and Soul (Berlin winner)   

onbodyandsoul1.jpg

The 64th Sydney Film Festival tonight awarded On Body and Soul, directed by Ildikó Enyedi, the prestigious 10th anniversary Sydney Film Prize, out of a selection of 12 Official Competition films. 

The $60,000 cash prize for 'audacious, cutting-edge and courageous' film was awarded to Enyedi at the Festival’s Closing Night Gala awards ceremony and event at the State Theatre, ahead of the Australian premiere screening of Bong Joon-ho's Okja. 

Accepting the award, Enyedi said, “It was such an amazingly strong competition. It’s marvellous that such a film can move so many people, it gives me so much hope in cinema and in human communication.”

Sydney filmmakers Sascha Ettinger Epstein and Claire Haywood were awarded the Documentary Australia Foundation Award for Australian Documentary’s $10,000 cash prize for The Pink House, about the last brothel in old mining town Kalgoorlie.

The Dendy Awards for Australian Short Films saw the $7000 cash prize for the Dendy Live Action Short Award going to Adele, directed by Mirene Igwabi.  Sunday Emerson Gullifer was Highly Commended for her short film Tomorrow, and tomorrow, and tomorrow.  And Daniel Agdag's animation Lost Property Office took out both the $7000 Rouben Mamoulian Award for Best Director and the $5000 Yoram Gross Animation Award.

The Event Cinemas Australian Short Screenplay Award, a $5,000 prize for the best short screenwriting, was awarded to Michael Cusack, the writer and director of stop motion animation After All.  And the writers of Screenability short film The Milky Pop Kid, Johanna Garvin and Emily Dash, were Highly Commended. 

The $10,000 Sydney-UNESCO City of Film Award, bestowed by Create NSW to a trail-blazing NSW-based screen practitioner, went to Indigenous Australian actor, director and writer Leah Purcell.

Chris Freeland announced he will step down as Sydney Film Festival Chair while remaining on the Board.   Freeland, a Partner of Baker McKenzie and a member of its Asia Pacific Regional Council, chaired the organisation for eight years.  He led an era of expansion as well as industry and public popularity, seeing attendances almost double.

Festival Board Director Deanne Weir was welcomed to the position of Chair. Weir has over 25 years’ experience in media and communications and is Foxtel’s Managing Director, Content Aggregation and Wholesale.  She is also a renowned television producer and philanthropist whose passion is to support the advancement of women in the community.

Sydney Film Festival CEO Leigh Small said, “This year again, the Festival exceeded previous attendance figures – a continuing ten-year trend. There was an average of 72% capacity across all sessions with almost 185,000 attendances. This result marks a fitting end to Chris Freeland’s eight year tenure during which the number of people attending the Sydney Film Festival almost doubled.”

Sydney Film Festival Director Nashen Moodley said: “2017 has been a significant year for film and filmmakers.   As the world looks for ways to understand and interpret the momentous events and challenges facing humanity, filmmakers across the globe have risen to the challenge.

“From refugees and the horrors of war, to the state of the world’s oceans,  this program of films - screened to Australian audiences for the first time at the 64th Sydney Film Festival - has provided an opportunity to debate and discuss some of the most pressing and contentious issues of our time.

“With a spotlight on questions of equality in race, sexuality, wealth, accessibility, and many other global conversations, these 12 days have provided a wealth of stories from diverse viewpoints and a moment in time to take stock of who, what and where we are today.

“I congratulate all the winners and all of the finalists, as well as the hundreds of filmmakers who have joined us at the Festival to present their ideas and opinions in films, talks and discussions,” he said.

THE SYDNEY FILM PRIZE

On awarding the Sydney Film Prize to Hungarian filmmaker Ildikó Enyedi’s On Body and Soul, Jury President Margaret Pomeranz said:

"Over the past 12 days we’ve experienced a most extraordinary cinematic journey curated by Sydney Film Festival.

"We’ve seen films about women struggling to find a space for themselves in a world that seems to want to keep them in their place; there have been films about transgressions, from youthful murder to child abuse.

"We’ve seen films about the many faces of sexual desire; we’ve been invited into worlds of wonder we have never experienced and we’ve been exposed to the ugly side of ourselves, through racism, poverty, cruelty and displacement.  And we’ve also been invited into the world of human compassion.

"And that element of compassion is very present in the film we’ve chosen to award the Sydney Film Prize.  It’s a film that shows us that even in this divided world we are capable of sharing the same dreams, that amongst the ugliness of a slaughterhouse, kindness, gentleness can be found," she said.

"So the Sydney Film Prize goes to the graceful, measured and ever so compassionate On Body and Soul from Hungarian filmmaker Ildikó Enyedi."

Winner of the Berlinale Golden Bear, On Body and Soul is Enyedi’s visually ravishing return to filmmaking after an 18-year break.  The film is about the unconventional romance between two co-workers who discover that each night they have exactly the same dreams.

The Festival jury was comprised of Australian film critic Margaret Pomeranz, critically acclaimed Nepali director Deepak Rauniyar, former senior film executive of South Korean powerhouse CJ Entertainment Kini Kim, independent Asian-Canadian animator Ann Marie Fleming, and Australian film producer Rosemary Blight of smash-hit The Sapphires and acclaimed television series Cleverman.

Previous winners include: Aquarius (2016), Arabian Nights (2015); Two Days, One Night (2014); Only God Forgives (2013); Alps (2012); A Separation (2011); Heartbeats (2010); Bronson (2009); and Hunger (2008).

The competition is endorsed by FIAPF, the regulating body for international film festivals, and is judged by a jury of five international and Australian filmmakers and industry professionals.

The selection of films in Competition for the SFF 2017 Sydney Film Prize are listed HERE.

THE DOCUMENTARY AUSTRALIA FOUNDATION AWARD FOR AUSTRALIAN DOCUMENTARY

The Documentary Australia Foundation Award for Australian Documentary was awarded to The Pink House from filmmakers Sascha Ettinger Epstein and Claire Haywood. The Jury comprising award-winning Asian-American filmmaker Ramona S. Diaz, CEO of the Documentary Australia Foundation Dr Mitzi Goldman and Australian based Iranian filmmaker Amin Palangi in a joint statement said:

"Amongst ten noteworthy films, one film enthralled us with its blend of nuanced characters and narrative depth. 

“In classic cinema verite fashion, the filmmaker introduces us to two singular women who give her unfettered access to their constantly changing lives, revealing a profound trust between filmmaker and subject that renders this film deeply personal and intimate.

“Through the unflinching gaze of her lens, this filmmaker immerses us in a world that, in less disciplined hands, could very well have been voyeuristic.  Instead we are treated to a film that is handled with affection and grace.”

          Blanco Court Beef Noodles : relocated to Greenwich V, Seletar   
They have been around since 1979 though not at the same location, they started at Blanco Court then moved to North Bridge Road and then to Guilemard Road before moving to the food court in Greenwich V at Seletar Road. It is currently manned by Uncle Max, the original chef. Their previous shop at Guilemard was opened by 24 years old Mike Loh who gave up pursuing a career related to his Diploma in Sports Science to carry on the family business but what exactly happened later on that led to the closure of this shop?


I was there on a weekday near lunch and I was their only customer at that time. I wanted to order a bowl of Beef Ball Soup ($5/$7/$9) and Mixed Beef Vermicelli (Dry) ($7/$9). That Uncle asked, "Do you want it with Bee Hoon?" I was a little confused and I thought he was referring to my order of Mixed Beef Vermicelli which I specially requested to have it with the sliced beef. I answered, "Yeah". I was served a bowl of Beef Ball Soup with bee hoon. I think Uncle did not get my second order so I repeated it. I waited for another 5 minutes for it to be ready. I asked whether am I supposed to add the cincalok to the chilli and I was told to do so.


The Beef Noodle is still good and satisfying. It is getting difficult to find good Hainanese style beef noodles these days. Their broth and thick gooey sauce are done using a 'secret" recipe that has been handed down and is using beef marrow as part of its main ingredients. Those sliced beef were cooked just right. It was garnished with a handful of grounded peanuts with salted vegetable and a piece of calamansi. To start, squeeze the calamansi then mixed it well with other ingredients and a better than average bowl of beef noodle awaits. 


I went for the Beef Ball Soup next. There were a few slices of beef and a handful of salted vegetable added to it, too. The soup was a little too light with a slight beefy taste. I was not quite impressed with those beef balls as I thought it could be better.

          Cavs Rumors: Breaking Down 2017 Offseason Plan for Cleveland   

The stakes couldn't be much higher for the Cleveland Cavaliers this summer.

Blow it, and LeBron James might walk out the door next offseason, likely creating a domino effect regarding the futures of Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love. Hit a home run and the Cavs may be able to close the gap on the Golden State Warriors.

While the team's massive payroll limits what Cleveland can realistically do, that doesn't lessen the weight of each and every decision the front office makes. 

Below are the biggest tasks ahead for the Cavaliers.

     

Resolve the General Manager Vacancy

In defense of the Cavs, at least they didn't fire their team president less than a week after the NBA draft, when the team selected an 18-year-old point guard to run the offense said team president espoused. While welcomed by New York Knicks fans, the timing of Phil Jackson's departure wasn't ideal.

Granted, Cleveland doesn't have much room to boast. The free-agent negotiating window opens Saturday and the Cavaliers are no closer to hiring a general manager.

ESPN.com's Jeff Goodman reported Wednesday the team is still in negotiations with Chauncey Billups and that Billups' representatives presented a counter-offer to team owner Dan Gilbert. The Associated Press' Tom Withers reported Tuesday that Billups is the only candidate who has met with Gilbert so far.

Firing David Griffin, who helped build a roster that reached three straight NBA Finals and win a championship, would've been more defensible if the Cavaliers had a cogent plan in mind to replace him.

Instead, they're putting all of their eggs in one basket—a basket that comes with potential pitfalls of its own:

As risky as hiring Billups would be, it might be a more preferable outcome than failing to hire him. At that point, Cleveland would be left scrambling for other candidates—potentially as the free-agency moratorium period is underway.

The absence of a general manager has already hurt the Cavs this offseason. They failed to land Jimmy Butler, who instead moved on to the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Undefeated's Marc J. Spears also shared this on the night of the draft:

Having a general manager surely would've helped the Cavs get the deal across the finish line.

Cleveland has backed itself into a corner, and hiring Billups is the best way to mitigate the damage.

     

Go All-In for Paul George or Carmelo Anthony

The Cavs don't have enough cap space to sign a marquee free agent, and their trade options are limited both by their available assets and the caliber of star they'd be looking to acquire. Butler's trade to the Timberwolves trims their choices even further.

If Cleveland fails to add Carmelo Anthony or Paul George, then it could be facing a summer in which it makes no noticeable upgrade to the roster. While the Cavs don't necessarily need to transform their squad, they can't afford to stand pat and hope their odds of upsetting the Warriors improve.

The door to trade for George may not be closed completely, but it's not exactly wide open, either.

The Cavs missed a chance to get George before the draft, with ESPN.com's Marc Stein and Chris Haynes reporting they tried to get a three-way trade involving the Indiana Pacers and Denver Nuggets completed.

Stein and Haynes added Cleveland will continue to pursue a possible George trade.

The Cavaliers have plenty of competition. The Vertical's Adrian Wojnarowski reported the Boston Celtics are attempting to get George and Gordon Hayward this summer, while ESPN.com's Tim MacMahon reported the Houston Rockets are targeting George as well.

The Rockets traded for Chris Paul on Wednesday, which might signal they shifted their resources toward acquiring the All-Star point guard at the cost of possibly acquiring George.

On Wednesday, Stein provided an update on the Anthony front:

The New York Knicks have eroded Anthony's trade value to the point that the Cavs may not have to give up much to get him—with a buyout clearly the optimal route.

Adding Anthony won't make the same kind of impact it would have five or six years ago, but he averaged 22.4 points and 5.9 rebounds a game and shot 35.9 percent from three-point range. And as a third or fourth scoring option for Cleveland, he may find the offensive efficiency he has lacked for much of his career.

      

Re-Sign Kyle Korver

The Cavaliers are at least somewhat lucky in that they don't have to worry about losing too many key players to free agency. They have five players out of contract: Kyle Korver, Deron Williams, Derrick Williams, James Jones and Dahntay Jones.

Of the five, Korver should be Cleveland's top priority.

The 36-year-old was very effective in his limited role. According to Basketball-Reference.com, 74.3 percent of his field-goal attempts came from beyond the arc, and he shot 48.5 percent from three-point range.

In February, Cleveland.com's Joe Vardon noted the Cavaliers have Bird rights for Korver, so they can exceed the salary cap in order to re-sign him. That gives Cleveland some much-needed financial help to lure the sharpshooter back for next year.

Given Gilbert's willingness to open his checkbook in the past, re-signing Korver shouldn't be too difficult for the Cavs.

          Legendary ad firm Saatchi & Saatchi is trying to bounce back from a disastrous gender blunder last year   

IMG_4042 (1).JPGSaatchi & Saatchi New York

When Andrea Diquez took on her role as chief executive officer of Saatchi & Saatchi New York last summer, the agency was trying to erase a big stain.

This year, things are looking up, thanks in part to another big stain.

A year ago, the Publicis shop’s global chairman Kevin Roberts had just resigned after controversially stating that the gender diversity debate within the industry was "over," its chief executive and chief creative officer had just departed and it was just on the verge of losing its longstanding client, General Mills.

To top things off, the legendary agency was already struggling to maintain its pre-eminent position in recent years, under pressure from the rapid changes in advertising being brought around by digital. 

"The morale was low, but my entire career has been about turning things around," Diquez, who was most recently president of Saatchi’s New York headquarters and global director of the Olay account for P&G, told Business Insider. "My aim was to continue to move forward."

The first thing she did was bring Javier Campopiano on board as the agency’s chief creative officer from his stint as Saatchi’s Latin America chief creative officer. Together, they embarked on a comeback trail.

The duo had one-one-meetings with clients as well as each of its 250 plus employees, took feedback and put a plan in action. They overhauled their teams and prioritized diversity more than ever before (The agency is 65% women, with 80% of the its leadership is now comprised of women).

And they focused on strengthening their client relationships, fostering an open and collaborative culture, and producing business results. Plus, the pair sought to infuse creativity into everything they did and most importantly, having fun and laughing more. 

"You can’t fix things without listening,” said Diquez. “It was important to understand everybody and their clients, before ensuring we were delivering what they and their clients both needed.”

Now, almost a year since the agency was stained, the plan seems to be working. Saatchi New York is redeeming itself through successful campaigns for big-name brands like Walmart and Tide, a reinvigorated culture and a couple of big award wins at the Cannes Lions under her and Campopiano’s leadership -- one of them ironically centered around stains.

The agency’s elaborate Super Bowl campaign for Procter & Gamble’s Tide called "Bradshaw stain" just snapped up five Golds, four Silvers and three Bronze Lions at Cannes last week, one of the biggest annual gatherings for the advertising, media and creative industries. It's also the first time in nearly 10 years that the agency has walked away from Cannes with such success. 

Help from a sloppy NFL Legend

The stunt–featuring Fox commentator and former NFL star Terry Bradshaw appearing at the Super Bowl with a stain on his shirt and then scrambling for clean clothes and ending up in actor Jeffrey Tambor’s lawn– not only sent Twitter into an overdrive, but also resulted in a record 22% sales lift for the brand’s pods product, according to the agency.

Another one for Walmart, consisted three films directed by four directors, which were all based on six items from a fictional Walmart receipt. It won a Bronze Lion in the entertainment category.

For Campopiano, the aim behind both the campaigns was to push the envelope and bring the agency’s longtime motto "Nothing Is Impossible" to life, not necessarily take a shot at awards. He has even instituted a weekly get-together called “Envy Mornings,” where the agency’s staffers, particularly creatives, get together to discuss outstanding work they wish they’d done. 

"The whole industry perceived as still being very traditional and stuck in the past, and we wanted to challenge that notion," he said. "Both the campaigns innovate around what people may call classic TV, but are integrated ideas. They needed everything, including TV, print and digital, to be cohesive, or they wouldn’t have worked." 

But still, winning is ultimately good, not only boosting the morale but also an agency’s competitive standing in the market.

"That’s what you get from awards, a shot of good energy that lifts up the collective spirit and brings an extra sense of optimism," said Diquez. "The sense of pride was beyond the award shows, we knew we had created very good work in the short period of time since we took the reigns."

The two are determined to keep Saatchi New York on an upward trajectory, continuing to push more innovative work, building clients’ businesses and attracting new clients. They also aim to strengthen their creative output by making parent company Publicis Groupe’s newly minted "Power of One" strategy–which aims to remove silos to provide clients with more integrated services–a key pillar.

"While we’ve primarily focused on our people and strengthening our client relationships and businesses, we’ve had some good wins specifically with USAA working within the Power of One," said Diquez.

          Mr Liverpool Ronnie Moran The Official Life Story   

Ronnie Moran has had a unique life. His 49 years service as player, coach, assistant manager, caretaker manager and more included some of Liverpool Football Club s most successful eras and he became one of the most respected figures in the game. And his son, Paul, had a unique life. As a football fanatic, he was able to get close to the inner sanctum of the rampant red machine. He got on the team bus, in the dressing room, got behind the scenes at the famous Melwood training ground and even went to the chippy for the players! Now he wants to help preserve his dad's memories in a book that will do justice to a Liverpool legend. Mr Liverpool: Ronnie Moran: is the official life story of one of the most important men in the history of one of European football's giant clubs.

From growing up in the suburbs of his home city, he joined his idols on the football pitch as a player, helping them to promotion from the old Second Division before going on to win the league title as part of Bill Shankly s Anfield revolution. Moving into the backroom team he went on to serve under managers such as Shankly, Bob Paisley, Joe Fagan and Kenny Dalglish, the club winning 26 of its 41 major honours while Ronnie was coaching. He even got to lead the Reds out at Wembley in 1992 as caretaker manager as his side won the FA Cup.

Moran's career was one of dedication, excellence and longevity as he completed 49 seasons on the staff in his various roles, working with some of the best players this country has ever seen. Written by Arnie Baldursson and Carl Clemente of the highly-respected website lfchistory.net, this book is packed with memories from dozens of those players as well as being a historical record of a career which is unlikely to ever be repeated at any top-flight club. Although he now suffers from vascular dementia, Ronnie's own recollections from across the decades are brought together, while his son provides stories and insight into a special time for the Morans and the club. With forewords from Roy Evans and Phil Thompson, and contributions from legends such as Kenny Dalglish, Alan Hansen, Bruce Grobbelaar and Jamie Carragher, this book will fascinate Liverpool fans. Backed by the club itself, no collection of books on the greatest figures in LFC history is complete without Mr Liverpool: Ronnie Moran.

          Post 2010 Draft Analysis:   
Obviously talent is a big factor in a player's success, but finding the right situation is also highly influential in how a player's career starts out. Below the fold will be who I think the winners and losers are in terms of the situation they landed in.

Winners:
Wesley Johnson(4) - The Timberwolves desperately needed an upgrade on the wing and Johnson should be able to get heavy minutes in his rookie season even though he has Brewer, Webster, and Ellington all worthy of minutes in the rotation.

DeMarcus Cousins(5) - The Kings do not need him to start next year with the one-year rental of Dalembert, which should allow Cousins to begin the season coming off the bench and then overtake the starting position mid-season. He and Tyreke should become one of the game's best young duos.

Greg Monroe(7) - Their frontcourt was without a player who could play minutes at Center, so Monroe could have been drafted into a starting role.

Al-Farouq Aminu(8) - He will have little pressure to produce offensively, which was the weakpoint in his game this last season. They will be counting on him, however, to give them quality defense as well as versatility to play both SF and PF, so the minutes should be there. While I'm not an Aminu fan, he couldn't have asked for a better situation.

Cole Aldrich(11) - It doesn't get much better for Cole. All OKC needs is for him to be a passable offensive option in the post, while giving them rebounding and defense. He can do that. Going to a team who would ask more of him would've spread out his focus and made him less effective.

Ed Davis(13) - Bosh is on the way out, and his competition in the frontcourt isn't exactly fierce. He will get his share of minutes, and Amir Johnson should allow Davis to come off the bench and hone his skills offensively against the other team's bench in his first season.

Kevin Seraphin(17) - Drafted higher than most expected, playing next to a stud PG, and landing in a frontcourt with an opening for his skillset... yeah, I'd say this is a pretty good situation for Seraphin.

Eric Bledsoe(18) - Like Aminu, there will be little pressure on Bledsoe to produce right away. Learning behind a vet like Davis will ease the transition back to the PG position after spending much of his time at SG last year in Kentucky.

Avery Bradley(19) - With Rondo there his playmaking wouldn't be on display and he could develop his PG skills while giving the Celtics outside shooting and lockdown D.

James Anderson(20) - Excellent location for Anderson to develop as they have many minutes available at the SG/SF spots and he can smooth over his defensive and handling issues.

Craig Brackins(21), Quincy Pondexter(26) - Both of these guys will be asked to give the Hornets' rotation a boost. Especially Brackins giving their frontcourt an offensive option in the post. Pondexter may be asked to mainly provide a defensive boost until Peja is off the books.

Dexter Pittman(32), Jarvis Varnado(41), Da'Sean Butler(42) - Miami needs players who don't cost very much, and all three of these seniors should be able to provide them with decent minutes right away. Pittman could even "start" games although he may only play for 15 minutes a night.


Losers:
Ekpe Udoh(6) - Financially, he's a winner... but in terms of the playing time he could see, he's a loser. The Warriors already have Randolph, Wright, Biedrins, and Turiaf in the frontcourt - and outside of his playmaking ability I don't see anything which makes me think he should earn big minutes until at least two of those guys are shipped out.

Xavier Henry(12) - Unless Mayo is moved to PG, I don't see how he'll ever get a starting spot in Memphis with Gay just agreeing to his deal. He could very well get 25-30mpg, but without room to grow this doesn't seem like the best situation for him.

Patrick Patterson(14) - He was one of the few guys who could immediately come in and give a team 30mpg if needed... however in Houston there are quite a few players who could get minutes at the PF spot (especially if Scola is brought back) and this could put the squeeze on Patterson.

Larry Sanders(15), Jerome Jordan(44), Tiny Gallon(47) - Gooden and Ilyasova are both there and each deserve minutes, so you have to wonder where these three fit in unless there is an injury.

Dominique Jones(25) - How on earth is he going to get minutes in Dallas? Maybe he'll be used with Dampier's contract in a S&T, but yeah... not good for him.

Daniel Orton(29) - He could easily be moved yet this summer, but as of this point I don't see where the minutes would come from with Howard, Gortat, Lewis, Anderson, and Bass all ahead of him in the rotation.
          2010 NBA Draft - Big Board (Final)   
2010 Big Board: Rule - can go down one tier for need, makes tiers more flexible and blended

1. John Wall - Elite athlete who takes advantage of fast breaks and drives seams well. Great defensive potential and comes up with big plays on that end though sometimes has mental lapses. Can create his own shot with ease, but will need to work on refining his jumper to become a complete offensive player. Prone for handling errors and tends to force things at times, but can also do some spectacular things with the ball. Is a good mix of pure and scoring point guard tendencies.
--------------------
2. Derrick Favors - Physical specimen with rare combination of strength and athleticism. Could play either frontcourt spot offensively, but needs to work on his jumpshot if he’s to maximize his effectiveness at the ‘4’ and his post skills if he’s going to maximize his effectiveness at the ‘5’. Tends to lose his dribble when executing post moves, but has great hands and should be a monster in terms of efficiency. At his peak, he should be one of the best defenders and rebounders, but he might lack the desire or passion on the court to be a dominant offensive player.

3. Evan Turner - A complete prospect. He is a good playmaker, handler, and floor general from the wing spot and will create mismatches because of his array of talents. Needs to keep working on his long-range jumpers, but currently has one of the best mid-range games in the draft, while also being comfortable driving to the rim - however in this area he is turnover-prone as he is too loose with his handle. He should be a plus defender because of his effort, even though he’s not the best of athletes. Might be facing an uphill battle to be a superstar, as he lacks the tools normally seen in those players, thus his potential is limited.

4. DeMarcus Cousins - He’s a dominant player in the post, able to bull over most people guarding him, but also blessed with surprisingly quick feet. Uses his body to gobble up rebounds on both ends, and has the touch to finish shots around the basket even though he’s not an explosive athlete to throw them down with ease. Has problems with maturity on the court, but not off of it. This leads him to pick up silly fouls and sometimes be an indifferent defender. Sometimes his fire is a good thing, however, as it’s what causes him to be dominant at times.
--------------------
5. Wesley Johnson - Elite athlete on the wing with a very effective jumper with NBA 3pt range and quick release. Doesn’t look uncomfortable with the ball, but not relied upon to handle the ball and doesn’t use his dribble to attack the basket effectively despite his physical advantages. Because of this, it leads one to believe he’ll never be seen as a star in the NBA. Good rebounder that takes advantage of positioning and his leaping ability to be an asset in that area. Defensively, he has the tools, but tends to gamble - though playing within the zone makes it hard to see how he’ll translate.
--------------------
6. Ed Davis - Before his season ended with a broken wrist, he showed improvement on both ends of the floor. Able to create for himself in the post as well as establish position against bigger players. Showed good touch around the hoop, but needs to add a reliable jumper to be a dangerous offensive player. Defensively, he possesses great timing and is a plus in both man and weakside situations. Can guard face-up ‘4’s effectively on the perimeter. Tends to be a little passive on the court, which brings up questions if he can ever be “the man”.

7. Xavier Henry - Overshadowed by veterans, Henry still showed his ability to play at both ends of the court and the potential to be a deadeye shooter. Has a smooth jumper with effortless release, but had a midseason slump where it was extremely streaky. Deceptively good athlete, who isn’t explosive around the rim but is able to create for himself when the situation calls for it. Not the best handler or playmaker, if he’s going to be anything more than a scorer he needs to improve in those areas. Has the length, athleticism, and strength to defend either wing position.
--------------------
8. Greg Monroe - Spectacular playmaker in the frontcourt who plays more like a guard than a big. Because of that, he also sports a decent jumpshot and is comfortable handling the ball on the perimeter. The downside, however, is that he’s relatively soft when playing in the post and can be easily rooted from position. Defensively, his lack of great athleticism and length, combined with the absence of the mentality to own the paint, causes him to be a neutral-at-best player on that end.

9. Paul George - Great athlete with the size and length to create mismatch problems on either end. Streaky jumpshooter who was relied upon too much in college, may become much more efficient as a 2nd or 3rd option as he shows pure form on his shot and great efficiency in spot-up situations. Ability to make plays and handle the ball is a plus. Defensively, he tends to gamble more than he should.

10. Al-Farouq Aminu - An intriguing combination of great length, agility, and instincts makes him an outstanding defensive prospect that can guard either Forward spot. Has a nose for the ball when it comes to rebounding. Offensively, he’s raw, having an unreliable jumper and making odd decisions when trying to make plays for himself or teammates. He is effective, however, when set up with spot-up jumpers or off offensive rebound opportunities.

11. Ekpe Udoh - Great athleticism and the biggest shoulders known to mankind are likely huge influences in helping make him a great defensive player both in man and weakside situations. Makes good decisions with the ball when making plays, however dribbles it way too high when driving to the rim. Decent jumper and post-game, but should not be relied upon as one of the top options - upside is that of a role player.

12. Hassan Whiteside - Being an elite weakside defender but raw man defender makes him an intriguing prospect. Great athlete with the ability to effectively guard players on the perimeter. Has a surprisingly good jumper and a decent post-game, but has tunnel vision once he gets the ball. He needs to work on his game in the post (offensively, defensively in man situations, and rebounding) to realize his great potential. A huge boom or bust prospect.

13. Cole Aldrich - Ready-made player who is a great rebounder and post defender. Has decent touch and an adequate jumper. However, he is not a good athlete and doesn’t assert himself offensively, which limits his upside.
--------------------
14. Patrick Patterson - Very polished player who is good in just about every aspect you judge a PF on. Has good strength, athleticism, size, and motor which means the mismatches against him will be few and far between. Worked on his jumper so now he can spot-up out to the 3pt line with good efficiency. Lost the mentality to go after every board, and also still cannot handle or create for himself outside of the post which means he’s almost certainly a role player.

15. Devin Ebanks - Excellent defender who excels at shutting down great perimeter players despite only having decent athleticism and physical tools. He needs to bulk up to be a good post defender against the bigger ‘3’s and most ‘4’s in the NBA. Possesses a good jumper out to 15-18 feet, but efficiency drops off the map once he gets near the 3pt line even though he has good form. Passing ability is a plus, but should not be relied upon to handle the ball. Lack of athleticism and polished offensive game limit his upside.

16. James Anderson - Good athlete possessing a great jumper with unlimited range as well as the ability to finish at the rim through contact. Does not look comfortable handling the ball, almost always going left when he drives and sometimes unable to create for himself when guarded by a skilled defender. Uses screens well, however, which should help him be an effective 3rd option in the NBA - however he’ll need to continue working on his handle to be anything more. Is an above average defender who tends to stay home instead of gamble.
--------------------
17. Avery Bradley - Great athlete and elite defender. Only offensive weapon is his jumper, both off the dribble and spotting up - but he doesn’t effectively take it to the rim nor does he draw contact. Needs to work on his handle and playmaking ability to realize his potential.

18. Damion James - Nice athlete with good size and skills for a role-player SF. Tough-nosed defender who can defend most perimeter players and some post players. Has a decent jumper and can create for himself, but isn’t a guy you want handling the ball often due to his lack of playmaking ability and not being a good dribbler even when comparing him to other SFs.

19. Willie Warren - If he were two inches taller he’d be a great prospect even though he had a down year, however at 6’4 without great length he’s small for a SG and his weaknesses become magnified. Great dribbler and ability to finish around the rim, also possesses a streaky jumpshot which is money if it’s on. However, he is an indifferent defender and even though his team was dysfunctional last year, he wasn’t helping with his selfish mentality.

20. Larry Sanders - Very athletic frontcourt player with excellent length, but lacking the strength required to guard some of the bigger post players. However, he is a great weakside defender and has solid man defensive skills. Needs to crash the boards with more fervor, as he plays a bit soft. Has worked on developing a jumper, but could stand to improve both that and his post skills.

21. Darington Hobson - A versatile wing with great playmaking ability, good handles, and a nice jumper. Struggles with efficiency when guarded with long, athletic players; but at the next level he won’t be the focus of defenses as he was in his one year in the NCAA. He needs to work on his game off the ball, as well as defensive intensity to maximize his potential as a role player.

22. Gordon Hayward - Smooth player with surprising athleticism and a good jumper, however he appeared to be very streaky this year after a consistent freshman season. Plays tougher than he looks, and also is an effective defender when he’s focused. Can rebound the ball and make plays at an above average clip compared to most other SF prospects. Needs to improve his handle and become more consistent on both ends of the court.
--------------------
23. Kevin Seraphin - Intruiging player with a great package of size, strength, athleticism, and length in the frontcourt. Could play either spot offensively or defensively. Needs to keep developing his offensive repertoire.

24. Eric Bledsoe - Great athlete who was forced to play out of position for most of his minutes. Showed the ability to guard either backcourt spot and was extremely focused when doing so, having few lapses. Has a good jumper, but far too often takes bad shots and is wild when driving to the rim. His playmaking skills did not appear to be very good compared to most PGs, so he’ll need to work on that or play next to a ball-dominant player who can handle the ball.

25. Terrico White - Great athlete with good length for the SG spot. Possesses solid playmaking skills and can help handle the ball, though he showed far less of this his sophomore year. Can create for himself in the halfcourt and good at driving the seams, however can be a bit reckless in his decisions which leads to him taking a few too many contested jumpers. An indifferent defender, he needs to show more intensity on this end and make use of his tools to realize his full potential and possibly become a very good starter.

26. Luke Babbitt - Very good offensive skills. Able to create for himself despite only having average handles and playing as an average or below average athlete. Has range well beyond the 3pt line, and also is dangerous close to the hoop. Surprisingly good playmaker with good vision for a combo forward. Defensively he gives effort, but frequently looks overmatched when guarding players with NBA athleticism and thus isn’t an effective defender.

27. Artsiom Parakhouski - Skilled player with great size, decent athleticism, and the mentality people look for in a post player. Goes after every rebound and utilizes good positioning and effort to secure it. Not an explosive leaper, but still a good defender at the college level due to his size and positioning, though he struggled outside the paint. Plays below the rim, but shows good touch around the hoop and has a reliable jumper to help space the floor.

28. Quincy Pondexter - Great athlete who relies upon playing bigger and stronger than he is to overpower opponents. The lack of a reliable jumper and good handles could hurt him in the NBA, as his interior game will not be nearly as effective and thus he may be in for a harsh transition. Defensively, he’s very good as he shows effort and intensity so his tools are used to their fullest.
--------------------
29. Gani Lawal – Explosive, powerful player who has developed offensive skills in the post. Missing a reliable jumper to make him an extremely dangerous offensive player - FTs need help too. Blessed with great athleticism and length, with good length and motor. Crashes the boards well. Defensively he needs to focus more as he’s prone to picking up silly fouls and allows easy baskets a bit too often.

30. Lance Stephenson - Good playmaker and handler for a SG, also possesses a knack for creating separation and getting up tough shots. Overly confident in his abilities, pressing too hard and frequently taking shots which are too tough instead of pulling back and passing the ball. Defensively, he shows good intensity at times, but most of the time he’s an indifferent defender. If he continues to work on his game, he has high potential, but doesn’t seem to get it.

31. Craig Brackins - Skilled offensive player whose efficiency will increase when he’s not asked to carry the load. Has well developed post moves, a good midrange game, and has the ability to extend his range beyond the 3pt line in time to - when combined with his playmaking ability - become a dangerous offensive role player. Defensively, however, he is likely going to be a negative for his team, as he hasn’t seemed interested on that end.

32. Jerome Jordan - Athletic, long player with skills on both ends. Is inconsistent in his level of play which makes it hard to project where he could go in his career. Needs to work on his jumper if he wants to be seen as a starter.

33. Solomon Alabi - Nice athlete from the C spot who can make a significant impact defensively thanks to his timing and ability to harass opposing big and guards both in the post and when he’s forced out to the perimeter. Plays a little soft, however, and needs to assert himself more on the boards - hands need work as well. Has a nice jump hook and stroke from the line, which bodes well for his ability to become a decent option in the post if he continues to improve.

34. Stanley Robinson - Great athlete who uses this athleticism to be a quality defender as well as an exciting player in transition or when crashing the boards offensively. Has a decent jumper, but needs to continue to improve it to become a good role player. Lacks good handles and strength, thus tends to play outside far more than inside.

35. Elliot Williams - Good athlete who relies on his ability to drive to the rim and finish through contact, but needs to work on his handle to become ambidextrous with the ball. Possesses an improving jumper, but needs to keep working on it to make a smooth transition to the NBA. Solid playmaker, but prone to trying to be too fancy with the ball and thus be a bit turnover prone despite not being ball-dominant. Defensively, he is below average, but this should not be his focus as his role in the NBA will be that of a scorer.

36. Daniel Orton - He’s a body blessed with great physical tools. Right now he’s raw on both ends, showing glimpses of having a decent face-up game and defensive potential to go along with those tools. Knee problems may scare off some teams, as will his tendency to play like a thug and thus pick up lots of fouls. Has a lot of work to do to become a decent NBA player, but the potential is there.

37. Dominique Jones - A bull of a guard who loves driving to the rim and has good touch around the basket despite not being a great athlete. Decent handle and playmaking ability, can also create separation for himself, but his jumper isn’t reliable. Defensively, he puts forth good effort, but isn’t very effective.
--------------------
38. Jarvis Varnado - Great weakside defender with outstanding timing. As a man defender, he’s in for a tough transition as he’s too small to guard most post players, and not quite agile enough to guard some face-up ‘4’s. Quality rebounder despite his lack of strength, thanks to his fundamentals. Needs to continue to work on his jumper to make a successful transition to PF.

39. Da’Sean Butler - Streaky jumpshooter who comes up big in the clutch. Knee injury may knock his athleticism down a notch, but at WVU he was an average athlete. Very complete offensive player, able to handle and make plays while also being able to drive to the rim and create separation for himself in the halfcourt. Defensively, he was mostly hidden, and doesn’t seem to possess the ability to do more than put a hand up.

40. Lazar Hayward - Good athlete with legit size for a SF. Possesses a nice jumper with NBA range, but lacks good handles and playmaking to be anything more than a role player offensively. Defensively, shows very good effort and has the potential to be a plus defender.

41. Jordan Crawford - Volume shooter whose efficiency tailed off in bigger games. However, he can create for himself and is able to get off shots in tough situations. Playmaking and handling are there, but not a strength. On the defensive side, he looks indifferent much of the time.

42. Trevor Booker - Surprising athlete who is skilled and can rock the rim. Has worked on a jumper and has range out to 18-20 feet. Nice defensive skills, active down low and very physical. Needs to become more physical on the boards and learn better fundamentals.

43. Mikhail Torrance - SG with some very nice PG skills, however doesn’t have a takeover mentality nor athleticism which will wow anyone, thus is a classic tweener. Defensively he’ll be a liability.

44. Derrick Caracter - Big, strong post player with excellent post skills and touch around the basket. Tough-nosed rebounder and very physical defensively - however is relatively ineffective against skilled opponents and isn’t much of a weakside defender due to below average athleticism.

45. Miroslav Raduljica - Very skilled post player with legit size, range on his jumper, and decent court vision. Lacks defensive ability and toughness, and is also a subpar rebounder.
--------------------
46. Tyler Smith - Immaturity destroyed his NBA prospects, but outside of that is a solid prospect with good playmaking, average defensive ability, a decent jumper and solid physical attributes. If he can show that he’s matured, and can improve the range on his jumper out to the NBA 3pt line, he could be a solid player.

47. Greivis Vasquez - Was a star in college. Good size, handles, jumper, and playmaking. His problem lies with his poor athleticism, where it is a hindrance that he cannot get around defensively, and offensively will make his transition to the pros a bumpy one.

48. Tibor Pleiss

49. Armon Johnson - Explosive guard who is at his best attacking so he can create for himself or his teammates. Spot up jumper is suspect, as is the range on it - so if he’s going to make it in the NBA it will need to be improved. Defensively, he has the tools, but seems disinterested at times.

50. Sylven Landesberg - Smooth offensive player that can create for himself and others at the SG spot, however he’s still quite raw and doesn’t always make the best play. Athletically, he is average or below average; which, when combined with his mentality defensively, makes him a minus on that end of the floor.

          June 2nd, 2010 - Big Board   
Been a little busy enjoying the summer, but I'm back working on this site again to get us all ready for the draft.

I just finished doing a major update to my big board, where instead of just having their name next to their rank, I now have a short synopsis of how I view the players and their attributes. Now, admittedly I am not an international expert, so those players will have shorter descriptions which may be far less helpful than looking at their respective DX, nbadraft.net, or ESPN page - but nonetheless I hope this is a helpful tool as you continue to get to know prospects strengths and weaknesses before the draft. In the coming weeks I'll be tweaking the descriptions more depending on the type of feedback I get.

Well, without further ado, the updated Big Board out to my 10th tier:
(As a reminder, the rule is that I would be able to go down one tier for need, this makes tiers more flexible and blended)

Tier 1:
1. John Wall - Elite athlete who takes advantage of fast breaks and drives seams well. Great defensive potential and comes up with big plays on that end though sometimes has mental lapses. Can create his own shot with ease, but will need to work on refining his jumper to become a complete offensive player. Prone for handling errors and tends to force things at times, but can also do some spectacular things with the ball. Is a good mix of pure and scoring point guard tendencies.

Tier 2:
2. Derrick Favors - Physical specimen with rare combination of strength and athleticism. Could play either frontcourt spot offensively, but needs to work on his jumpshot if he’s to maximize his effectiveness at the ‘4’ and his post skills if he’s going to maximize his effectiveness at the ‘5’. Tends to lose his dribble when executing post moves, but has great hands and should be a monster in terms of efficiency. At his peak, he should be one of the best defenders and rebounders, but he might lack the desire or passion on the court to be a dominant offensive player.

3. Evan Turner - A complete prospect. He is a good playmaker, handler, and floor general from the wing spot and will create mismatches because of his array of talents. Needs to keep working on his long-range jumpers, but currently has one of the best mid-range games in the draft, while also being comfortable driving to the rim - however in this area he is turnover-prone as he is too loose with his handle. He should be a plus defender because of his effort, even though he’s not the best of athletes. Might be facing an uphill battle to be a superstar, as he lacks the tools normally seen in those players, thus his potential is limited.

4. DeMarcus Cousins - He’s a dominant player in the post, able to bull over most people guarding him, but also blessed with surprisingly quick feet. Uses his body to gobble up rebounds on both ends, and has the touch to finish shots around the basket even though he’s not an explosive athlete to throw them down with ease. Has problems with maturity on the court, but not off of it. This leads him to pick up silly fouls and sometimes be an indifferent defender. Sometimes his fire is a good thing, however, as it’s what causes him to be dominant at times.

Tier 3:
5. Wesley Johnson - Elite athlete on the wing with a very effective jumper with NBA 3pt range and quick release. Doesn’t look uncomfortable with the ball, but not relied upon to handle the ball and doesn’t use his dribble to attack the basket effectively despite his physical advantages. Because of this, it leads one to believe he’ll never be seen as a star in the NBA. Good rebounder that takes advantage of positioning and his leaping ability to be an asset in that area. Defensively, he has the tools, but tends to gamble - though playing within the zone makes it hard to see how he’ll translate.

Tier 4:
6. Ed Davis - Before his season ended with a broken wrist, he showed improvement on both ends of the floor. Able to create for himself in the post as well as establish position against bigger players. Showed good touch around the hoop, but needs to add a reliable jumper to be a dangerous offensive player. Defensively, he possesses great timing and is a plus in both man and weakside situations. Can guard face-up ‘4’s effectively on the perimeter. Tends to be a little passive on the court, which brings up questions if he can ever be “the man”.

7. Xavier Henry - Overshadowed by veterans, Henry still showed his ability to play at both ends of the court and the potential to be a deadeye shooter. Has a smooth jumper with effortless release, but had a midseason slump where it was extremely streaky. Deceptively good athlete, who isn’t explosive around the rim but is able to create for himself when the situation calls for it. Not the best handler or playmaker, if he’s going to be anything more than a scorer he needs to improve in those areas. Has the length, athleticism, and strength to defend either wing position.

Tier 5:
8. Greg Monroe - Spectacular playmaker in the frontcourt who plays more like a guard than a big. Because of that, he also sports a decent jumpshot and is comfortable handling the ball on the perimeter. The downside, however, is that he’s relatively soft when playing in the post and can be easily rooted from position. Defensively, his lack of great athleticism and length, combined with the absence of the mentality to own the paint, causes him to be a neutral-at-best player on that end.

9. Al-Farouq Aminu - An intriguing combination of great length, agility, and instincts makes him an outstanding defensive prospect that can guard either Forward spot. Has a nose for the ball when it comes to rebounding. Offensively, he’s raw, having an unreliable jumper and making odd decisions when trying to make plays for himself or teammates. He is effective, however, when set up with spot-up jumpers or off offensive rebound opportunities.

10. Ekpe Udoh - Great athleticism and the biggest shoulders known to mankind are likely huge influences in helping make him a great defensive player both in man and weakside situations. Makes good decisions with the ball when making plays, however dribbles it way too high when driving to the rim. Decent jumper and post-game, but should not be relied upon as one of the top options - upside is that of a role player.

11. Paul George - Great athlete with the size and length to create mismatch problems on either end. Streaky jumpshooter who was relied upon too much in college, may become much more efficient as a 2nd or 3rd option as he shows pure form on his shot and great efficiency in spot-up situations. Ability to make plays and handle the ball is a plus. Defensively, he tends to gamble more than he should.

12. Hassan Whiteside - Being an elite weakside defender but raw man defender makes him an intriguing prospect. Great athlete with the ability to effectively guard players on the perimeter. Has a surprisingly good jumper and a decent post-game, but has tunnel vision once he gets the ball. He needs to work on his game in the post (offensively, defensively in man situations, and rebounding) to realize his great potential. A huge boom or bust prospect.

13. Cole Aldrich - Ready-made player who is a great rebounder and post defender. Has decent touch and an adequate jumper. However, he is not a good athlete and doesn’t assert himself offensively, which limits his upside.

Tier 6:
14. Donatas Motiejunas - Great athlete with a versatile game which allows him to play inside or out, play fast-paced or in the half-court. Needs to toughen up and work on his interior game to realize his great potential, otherwise he will need to be an extremely efficient offensive player to make up for the other areas in his game.

15. Devin Ebanks - Excellent defender who excels at shutting down great perimeter players despite only having decent athleticism and physical tools. He needs to bulk up to be a good post defender against the bigger ‘3’s and most ‘4’s in the NBA. Possesses a good jumper out to 15-18 feet, but efficiency drops off the map once he gets near the 3pt line even though he has good form. Passing ability is a plus, but should not be relied upon to handle the ball. Lack of athleticism and polished offensive game limit his upside.

16. Patrick Patterson - Very polished player who is good in just about every aspect you judge a PF on. Has good strength, athleticism, size, and motor which means the mismatches against him will be few and far between. Worked on his jumper so now he can spot-up out to the 3pt line with good efficiency. Lost the mentality to go after every board, and also still cannot handle or create for himself outside of the post which means he’s almost certainly a role player.

17. James Anderson - Good athlete possessing a great jumper with unlimited range as well as the ability to finish at the rim through contact. Does not look comfortable handling the ball, almost always going left when he drives and sometimes unable to create for himself when guarded by a skilled defender. Uses screens well, however, which should help him be an effective 3rd option in the NBA - however he’ll need to continue working on his handle to be anything more. Is an above average defender who tends to stay home instead of gamble.

Tier 7:
18. Avery Bradley - Great athlete and elite defender. Only offensive weapon is his jumper, both off the dribble and spotting up - but he doesn’t effectively take it to the rim nor does he draw contact. Needs to work on his handle and playmaking ability to realize his potential.

19. Willie Warren - If he were two inches taller he’d be a great prospect even though he had a down year, however at 6’4 without great length he’s small for a SG and his weaknesses become magnified. Great dribbler and ability to finish around the rim, also possesses a streaky jumpshot which is money if it’s on. However, he is an indifferent defender and even though his team was dysfunctional last year, he wasn’t helping with his selfish mentality.

20. Damion James - Nice athlete with good size and skills for a role-player SF. Tough-nosed defender who can defend most perimeter players and some post players. Has a decent jumper and can create for himself, but isn’t a guy you want handling the ball often due to his lack of playmaking ability and not being a good dribbler even when comparing him to other SFs.

21. Larry Sanders - Very athletic frontcourt player with excellent length, but lacking the strength required to guard some of the bigger post players. However, he is a great weakside defender and has solid man defensive skills. Needs to crash the boards with more fervor, as he plays a bit soft. Has worked on developing a jumper, but could stand to improve both that and his post skills.

22. Kevin Seraphin - Intruiging player with a great package of size, strength, athleticism, and length in the frontcourt. Could play either spot offensively or defensively. Needs to keep developing his offensive repertoire.

23. Eric Bledsoe - Great athlete who was forced to play out of position for most of his minutes. Showed the ability to guard either backcourt spot and was extremely focused when doing so, having few lapses. Has a good jumper, but far too often takes bad shots and is wild when driving to the rim. His playmaking skills did not appear to be very good compared to most PGs, so he’ll need to work on that or play next to a ball-dominant player who can handle the ball.

24. Darington Hobson - A versatile wing with great playmaking ability, good handles, and a nice jumper. Struggles with efficiency when guarded with long, athletic players; but at the next level he won’t be the focus of defenses as he was in his one year in the NCAA. He needs to work on his game off the ball, as well as defensive intensity to maximize his potential as a role player.

25. Gordon Hayward - Smooth player with surprising athleticism and a good jumper, however he appeared to be very streaky this year after a consistent freshman season. Plays tougher than he looks, and also is an effective defender when he’s focused. Can rebound the ball and make plays at an above average clip compared to most other SF prospects. Needs to improve his handle and become more consistent on both ends of the court.

Tier 8:
26. Artsiom Parakhouski - Skilled player with great size, decent athleticism, and the mentality people look for in a post player. Goes after every rebound and utilizes good positioning and effort to secure it. Not an explosive leaper, but still a good defender at the college level due to his size and positioning, though he struggled outside the paint. Plays below the rim, but shows good touch around the hoop and has a reliable jumper to help space the floor.

27. Terrico White - Great athlete with good length for the SG spot. Possesses solid playmaking skills and can help handle the ball, though he showed far less of this his sophomore year. Can create for himself in the halfcourt and good at driving the seams, however can be a bit reckless in his decisions which leads to him taking a few too many contested jumpers. An indifferent defender, he needs to show more intensity on this end and make use of his tools to realize his full potential and possibly become a very good starter.

28. Luke Babbitt - Very good offensive skills. Able to create for himself despite only having average handles and playing as an average or below average athlete. Has range well beyond the 3pt line, and also is dangerous close to the hoop. Surprisingly good playmaker with good vision for a combo forward. Defensively he gives effort, but frequently looks overmatched when guarding players with NBA athleticism and thus isn’t an effective defender.

29. Gani Lawal – Explosive, powerful player who has developed offensive skills in the post. Missing a reliable jumper to make him an extremely dangerous offensive player - FTs need help too. Blessed with great athleticism and length, with good length and motor. Crashes the boards well. Defensively he needs to focus more as he’s prone to picking up silly fouls and allows easy baskets a bit too often.

30. Quincy Pondexter - Great athlete who relies upon playing bigger and stronger than he is to overpower opponents. The lack of a reliable jumper and good handles could hurt him in the NBA, as his interior game will not be nearly as effective and thus he may be in for a harsh transition. Defensively, he’s very good as he shows effort and intensity so his tools are used to their fullest.

31. Craig Brackins - Skilled offensive player whose efficiency will increase when he’s not asked to carry the load. Has well developed post moves, a good midrange game, and has the ability to extend his range beyond the 3pt line in time to - when combined with his playmaking ability - become a dangerous offensive role player. Defensively, however, he is likely going to be a negative for his team, as he hasn’t seemed interested on that end.

32. Stanley Robinson - Great athlete who uses this athleticism to be a quality defender as well as an exciting player in transition or when crashing the boards offensively. Has a decent jumper, but needs to continue to improve it to become a good role player. Lacks good handles and strength, thus tends to play outside far more than inside.

Tier 9:
33. Jerome Jordan - Athletic, long player with skills on both ends. Is inconsistent in his level of play which makes it hard to project where he could go in his career. Needs to work on his jumper if he wants to be seen as a starter.

34. Daniel Orton - He’s a body blessed with great physical tools. Right now he’s raw on both ends, showing glimpses of having a decent face-up game and defensive potential to go along with those tools. Knee problems may scare off some teams, as will his tendency to play like a thug and thus pick up lots of fouls. Has a lot of work to do to become a decent NBA player, but the potential is there.

35. Solomon Alabi - Nice athlete from the C spot who can make a significant impact defensively thanks to his timing and ability to harass opposing big and guards both in the post and when he’s forced out to the perimeter. Plays a little soft, however, and needs to assert himself more on the boards - hands need work as well. Has a nice jump hook and stroke from the line, which bodes well for his ability to become a decent option in the post if he continues to improve.

36. Jarvis Varnado - Great weakside defender with outstanding timing. As a man defender, he’s in for a tough transition as he’s too small to guard most post players, and not quite agile enough to guard some face-up ‘4’s. Quality rebounder despite his lack of strength, thanks to his fundamentals. Needs to continue to work on his jumper to make a successful transition to PF.

37. Elliot Williams - Good athlete who relies on his ability to drive to the rim and finish through contact, but needs to work on his handle to become ambidextrous with the ball. Possesses an improving jumper, but needs to keep working on it to make a smooth transition to the NBA. Solid playmaker, but prone to trying to be too fancy with the ball and thus be a bit turnover prone despite not being ball-dominant. Defensively, he is below average, but this should not be his focus as his role in the NBA will be that of a scorer.

Tier 10:
38. Lance Stephenson - Good playmaker and handler for a SG, also possesses a knack for creating separation and getting up tough shots. Overly confident in his abilities, pressing too hard and frequently taking shots which are too tough instead of pulling back and passing the ball. Defensively, he shows good intensity at times, but most of the time he’s an indifferent defender. If he continues to work on his game, he has high potential, but doesn’t seem to get it.

39. Dominique Jones - A bull of a guard who loves driving to the rim and has good touch around the basket despite not being a great athlete. Decent handle and playmaking ability, can also create separation for himself, but his jumper isn’t reliable. Defensively, he puts forth good effort, but isn’t very effective.

40. Da’Sean Butler - Streaky jumpshooter who comes up big in the clutch. Knee injury may knock his athleticism down a notch, but at WVU he was an average athlete. Very complete offensive player, able to handle and make plays while also being able to drive to the rim and create separation for himself in the halfcourt. Defensively, he was mostly hidden, and doesn’t seem to possess the ability to do more than put a hand up.

41. Jordan Crawford - Volume shooter whose efficiency tailed off in bigger games. However, he can create for himself and is able to get off shots in tough situations. Playmaking and handling are there, but not a strength. On the defensive side, he looks indifferent much of the time.

42. Trevor Booker - Surprising athlete who is skilled and can rock the rim. Has worked on a jumper and has range out to 18-20 feet. Nice defensive skills, active down low and very physical. Needs to become more physical on the boards and learn better fundamentals.

43. Mikhail Torrance - SG with some very nice PG skills, however doesn’t have a takeover mentality nor athleticism which will wow anyone, thus is a classic tweener. Defensively he’ll be a liability.

44. Derrick Caracter - Big, strong post player with excellent post skills and touch around the basket. Tough-nosed rebounder and very physical defensively - however is relatively ineffective against skilled opponents and isn’t much of a weakside defender due to below average athleticism.

45. Miroslav Raduljica - Very skilled post player with legit size, range on his jumper, and decent court vision. Lacks defensive ability and toughness, and is also a subpar rebounder.

46. Pablo Aguilar - A below average athlete, he makes his living off his smooth jumper and being a smart offensive player. Defensively he’s active, but he lacks the physical tools to be a plus defender at the NBA level - only a pest.

47. Tyler Smith - Immaturity destroyed his NBA prospects, but outside of that is a solid prospect with good playmaking, average defensive ability, a decent jumper and solid physical attributes. If he can show that he’s matured, and can improve the range on his jumper out to the NBA 3pt line, he could be a solid player.

48. Lazar Hayward - Good athlete with legit size for a SF. Possesses a nice jumper with NBA range, but lacks good handles and playmaking to be anything more than a role player offensively. Defensively, shows very good effort and has the potential to be a plus defender.

49. Greivis Vasquez - Was a star in college. Good size, handles, jumper, and playmaking. His problem lies with his poor athleticism, where it is a hindrance that he cannot get around defensively, and offensively will make his transition to the pros a bumpy one.

50. Armon Johnson - Explosive guard who is at his best attacking so he can create for himself or his teammates. Spot up jumper is suspect, as is the range on it - so if he’s going to make it in the NBA it will need to be improved. Defensively, he has the tools, but seems disinterested at times.

51. Sylven Landesberg - Smooth offensive player that can create for himself and others at the SG spot, however he’s still quite raw and doesn’t always make the best play. Athletically, he is average or below average; which, when combined with his mentality defensively, makes him a minus on that end of the floor.

Paul George - So. SG/SF, Fresno State

Per36min numbers against Quality Opponents (10 games):
17.8 pts, 7.1 rebs, 3.3 asts, 2.1 stls, 0.6 blks, 4.3 TOs, 2.9 PFs
35.5 FG%, 27.3 3pt% (15/55), 90.0 FT%, .43 FTA/FGA

After two years of playing at Fresno State, Paul George is a relative enigma to the casual fan. Playing in the WAC did not offer him many opportunities to go up against quality NCAA teams, as the best WAC teams of the past two seasons (Utah State and Nevada) did not exactly offer the type of NBA-caliber talent to go up against that teams in the major conferences could. However, the diligent fan could find games being streamed online, and in those games they could see that his talent stood out on the court.

Standing about 6’7 and weighing roughly 205lbs, George isn’t powerfully built. That’s not his game, however, as he’s more comfortable on the perimeter than he is slashing to the rim and working on the block. Seeing as he has pretty good athleticism and wingspan for a wing, this may not be taking full advantage of his physical gifts; but word is he wasn’t challenged to expand his role at Fresno State, and thus he stayed in the area he was comfortable in. This has reportedly changed since he declared for the draft, and now he’s expanding his game to being more adept at handling the ball and getting to the rim.

It was kind of a tale of two seasons for Paul. Before he sprained his ankle, he was 46.9% from the field and 39.1% from 3pt range. After he came back, he went 33.9% from the field and 28.1% from range. Now, could it be that the difference lied in the quality of competition? Potentially, but I’m willing to give him the benefit of the doubt in how he finished the season and say that he just lost his rhythm during the time off or that the ankle continued to bother him.

However, it also could be that he’s a streaky shooter. It’s no secret that George relies heavily on his jumper. Nearly half of his attempts on the year were from 3pt range, and when you saw him play during games he would hover around the perimeter and either catch and shoot or look to create jumpers after one or two dribbles. He was effective creating separation from his defender in most instances, but even though his shot appears pure, late in the year they were not falling at the same rate as they were in the beginning. For someone who doesn’t take advantage of his relatively good handle and clear athletic advantage in college by going to the rim, this spelled doom to his efficiency numbers and put him at a 0.81 PPP - tied for last among the SF prospects.

Now, I do believe his shooting stroke is pure, which is why I have him ranked as a fringe lottery pick. The evidence which helps back this up comes in his freshman numbers, numbers from the first half of this year, and his obscenely high FT% for a wing. Combine this with the fact that he likely will not be the focus of defenses in the NBA as he tended to be in college, and I think his efficiency will improve.

Enough about that, time to talk about other facets of his game outside of his long-range jump shot. When in the post, George likes to spin and attempt fadeaways and rarely uses these opportunities to take it to the rim. This isn’t a problem, as he doesn’t necessarily have the strength to do this in the pros either; but it does effectively limit him to working from the perimeter until he can hit those at a high rate or develop some kind of reliable counter. As mentioned earlier, he also wasn’t effective late in the year when it came to attempting jumpers off the dribble; but I’m wary at declaring this as being a weakness of his since it’s possible the ankle injury played a large role in his woes. I really wish he used his athleticism and handle to take it to the rack more, as when he did he seemed to be very effective at finishing (he’s truly an electrifying dunker), but at this point it’s not a part of his game, though it’s rumored that during the offseason he’s been working on it so stay tuned to news from workouts.

As mentioned, he almost certainly won’t be the focal point of an offense in the NBA, so the fact that he has off the ball and playmaking skills greatly helps his cause. Paul possesses good court vision and passing ability for a wing prospect, showing the ability to recognize when he should rotate the ball, make the simple pass, or create a shot for a teammate by threading it into the post with a quick flick of the wrist. However, he makes poor decisions by trying to force things too often, which results in his occasional good playmaking go to waste because of the unnecessary turnovers he commits. This will certainly need to be corrected at the pro level, because a non-star on the wing should not be wasting possessions for his team. Again, this was rumored to be something he’s improved, so stay tuned to how he performs in 3-on-3 action in the workouts.

Defensively, George has all the tools to be a good or potentially great wing defender. He has the lateral food speed, length, and leaping ability to be a very effective pest. His problem lies in the gambling nature which he was allowed to get away with at Fresno State. This mentality allowed him to make many impressive plays, including jumping the passing lanes for steals and breakaway plays for himself or his teammates; as well as weakside blocks near the hoop where he shows off his impressive vertical and timing. However, this also allowed his man to have some open jumpers when George would sag into the paint, or allow him to cut into the lane after he would lunge for a steal. Even with those flaws, he showed himself to be a pretty good man defender on the perimeter; and with proper coaching he could be a plus player on that end of the floor against the smaller SFs, though may have great problems against the stronger SFs in the NBA like Melo or Wallace who like to post up.

Overall, Paul’s great physical tools, smooth stroke, relatively good playmaking skills, and defensive aptitude make him a tantalizing prospect. There’s a lot of uncertainty with him and how he’ll make the transition, so opinions of him will be all over the board. Me? I like him as an option for teams in the late lottery and mid-first because of his potential as a role player who, if he puts it all together, could become a guy who gets some all-star looks in his career.

          Devin Ebanks Writeup   
Devin Ebanks - So. SF/PF, West Virginia

Per36min numbers against Quality Opponents (27 games):
12.2 pts, 8.6 rebs, 2.7 asts, 1.1 stls, 0.5 blks, 1.7 PFs, 2.3 TOs
47.2 FG%, 15.8 3pt% (3/19), 76.2 FT%, .55 FTA/FGA

Devin Ebanks may be the consummate role player at the SF spot. He plays with energy on both ends, he crashes the boards, he is unselfish and moves the ball well, he is an outstanding man defender and great team defender, he can score efficiently from within 15 feet, and he can knock his FTs down.

At 6’8, 210lbs Ebanks is not a physically imposing player. However, even though he only has above average length and athleticism in NBA terms, he is a menace on the defensive end and can play in the paint as well as well as check the opposing team’s most talented offensive player. While he doesn’t posses great straight-line speed with the ball in his hands, he is fast moving without the ball. Even though he only has mediocre leaping ability, he is efficient finishing inside and does a great job challenging shots. Even though his lateral quickness isn’t elite, he understands positioning defensively to cut off lanes and stay in front of his man. Honestly, his biggest advantage athletically over his SF competition may be that he never appears to tire, especially on the defensive end.

Offensively, Ebanks has learned to play within himself and because of that his efficiency has risen. Some may point to the season-long numbers and claim they haven’t improved from 2008-09, however his last 15 or 20 games he stopped taking the long jumpers which are currently his bane, and stopped forcing the issue. This has led to a substantial increase in his efficiency to where he’s rose from the bottom of the SF pack in terms of offensive efficiency to the middle at 0.91 PPP - impressive considering he doesn’t currently have a reliable 3pt shot in his arsenal.

A common misconception about Devin is that he can’t shoot. While he has the worst 3pt% out of all the players in my database who attempt more than 0.5 3’s a game, he has one of the more effective midrange shots in the current SF crop - something I expect to be backed up when DraftExpress does their annual SynergySports write-ups. Nevertheless, even with the good midrange shot, his lack of a 3pt shot is his biggest detraction as a prospect and it’s something which I had hoped to see him improve upon from his freshman season. Extending the range on his jumper needs to be his primary objective, as because he is only reliable out to 15 feet, the value of his other offensive skills lessens as neither the ability to space the floor nor the threat of a jumper when he’s on the perimeter are there.

However, even with the struggles with his range, those other offensive skills are what make him a good role player prospect offensively. I’ll first touch on his passing, court vision, and decision-making. Some may point to the lack of awareness of the dwindling game clock against Villanova, or the 8 TOs against Washington and claim I have no clue what I’m talking about. Yes, those are two recent events which are blemishes, however, if you take a look at his season as a whole, and then realize that every player has made mistakes which are egregious this season; you realize they aren’t the norm for Devin. He boasts the 3rd best A:TO ratio among Forwards while netting the 4th most assists, and has, along with teammate Da’Sean Butler, spent time substantial playing point forward for WVU. When he gets the ball on the wing, he looks to create for teammates first and himself second. While he’s not a flashy passer like Hobson, he makes the simple passes and sees open teammates much better than your normal SF prospect.

Another offensive strength is his motion within the offense which can probably attributed to the type of offense Huggins likes to play. Nonetheless, Ebanks will be seen cutting to the rim, setting or coming off screens, or going into the high-post to help break a zone or draw in defenders so that teammates can get open perimeter shots. Whether it comes naturally to Ebanks, or it was ingrained into his style by Huggins, the fact that he is rarely ever stationary in the corner waiting for a pass for a full possession is going to be a nice asset for some NBA team - and it’s something that a lot of players have trouble with when the ball is not in their hands.

Like most prospects, he has his weaknesses. Most of his stem from being a mediocre at best ball handler who picks up his dribble far too easily when pressured by the defense. This limits his effectiveness driving the ball from the hoop, and also his ability to give his team another quality option bringing the ball up the floor. As far as his point forward skills are concerned, to make the transition to the NBA level his point forward abilities that he showed at WVU, he’ll need to work on his handle with both hands and become quicker with the ball.

Another weakness is the refinement in his post-up game, mainly due to his lack of strength. When he gets the ball in the post, whether from a post-entry pass or from an offensive rebound, he shows ability to convert when he has position; however when he’s left to create something for himself, he’ll frequently rely on a step back fadeaway or attempt to spin around his opponent as he doesn’t seem to have reliable touch on a hook shot or an up and under. I don’t know if this is something which needs immediate attention because he appears to be more of a mid-range guy, but it’s a weakness nonetheless.

Moving away from scoring and playmaking skills, Ebanks is one of the better rebounders. He’s in that second tier of offensive rebounders at the SF spot behind Aminu, though defensively he’s not quite as strong as he spends a lot of his time guarding the other team’s top perimeter threat or being the point man when WVU goes zone. However, he shows good fundamentals boxing his man out even though he is relatively light for a SF, and multiple times a game he will just outwork or outsmart the opposing team to get a rebound. This hustling will translate well to the NBA level because of his height and deceptive agility, but the fundamentals may not, as he will certainly need to add strength in order to continue to box out players like he does.

By far his biggest asset as a prospect is his defensive ability. I’ll start off with his man defense, where Ebanks has guarded, and done a significantly better job than his teammates in doing so, a variety of top college players such as Scottie Reynolds, Evan Turner, and even bigs like Greg Monroe. Something ESPN posted shortly after the Villanova game was that on 37 possessions Ebanks guarded Reynolds, he had 4 points, 1-5 FG, and 4 TOs; whereas on the other 27 possessions WVU players guarded Reynolds, he had 17 points, 4-5 FG, and 0 TOs. This was a similar situation to when Ebanks was put onto Turner in the second half of the OSU game and he proceeded to go quiet after having a monster first half against the WVU zone.

Simply put, he doesn’t let his lack of elite physical tools get in the way of being an elite defender. He actively uses his arms to both shut off potential passing lanes and also help funnel his man away from where he wants to go and into the part of the WVU defense which can help. He doesn’t go for blocks, but rather is an effective defender and harasses them into lower percentage shots by getting a hand up near their face and sticking close by them to not give them any room - without fouling might I add. Those who say Ebanks has not made any progress this season from last will point to the steal and block numbers to say he hasn’t made improvements defensively, but as I have explained, this is far from the case.

When it comes to team defense, the responsibility Huggins routinely gives Ebanks by putting him at the point of their 1-3-1 zone to help disrupt the opposing offenses and help trap ball-handlers in the corner. This can also be seen in the intelligent rotations he makes off his man assignments to give help in the post, or in the way he jumps passing lanes to create fast-break opportunities for himself and his teammates. Pretty much, Ebanks is the total package defensively, and will be able to spend time guarding the 1-4 spots in the pros.

Overall, while it may have been a disappointment in terms of his scoring output this season, Ebanks has been simply amazing in how effective he’s been defensively. Taking a backseat to Da’Sean Butler may not have been a bad thing for his development either, as he likely better understands what his future role will be, and may have lost the rumored attitude problems which had been there early in his college career. So while some may be wary of taking a prospect who may never be more than a 4th option offensively in the NBA, I believe his defensive ability, role-player skills, and intangibles make him a good prospect in the late-lottery or mid-first and currently have him slotted 11th on my board.

          Jim Boeheim Calls Tom Crean an Idiot for Ripping Tyler Lydon's NBA Potential   

Syracuse Orange head basketball coach Jim Boeheim did not take kindly to former Indiana coach Tom Crean criticizing Tyler Lydon's NBA prospects.

"He's an idiot," Boeheim said Thursday, per Chris Carlson of Syracuse.com. "He said he's not a good shooter. Freshman, sophomore year he shoots 40 percent from 3. That's pretty good for a young player.

"I think he had the best shooting statistics at the combine, I think, of all the big guys," Boeheim continued. "He shoots it. That's what he does. It just shows the ignorance and not doing the work, the research, the background check. He's athletic and can do a lot of other things but he can really shoot."

Carlson noted Crean questioned Lydon's shooting and defensive abilities as a potential stretch 4 at the NBA level, saying, "I don't think he's that good."

According to Carlson, Crean's comments came on The Vertical's NBA draft livestream.

Boeheim was adamant the 6'9" Lydon impressed at the combine with his shooting touch, and NBA.com notes he hit at least 60 percent of his shots in all but one of the 10 shooting stations. He also drilled 39.8 percent of the three-pointers he attempted during his two years at Syracuse.

Despite Crean's criticism, Lydon was good enough for the Denver Nuggets, who traded for him after the Utah Jazz selected him with the No. 24 overall pick.

Lydon's touch from the outside helped him average 13.2 points per game with the Orange this past season, and Jonathan Wasserman of Bleacher Report praised his release when breaking into open space:

Lydon also averaged 7.4 rebounds a game in his collegiate career and will look to translate his success on the boards and beyond the arc to the NBA level, even if Crean doesn't believe he can.

          UNC Football Player Allen Artis Sexual Assault Charges Dropped   

The attorney for North Carolina cornerback Allen Artis announced on Thursday sexual assault charges against his client have been dropped.

Per ABC 11 News, attorney Kerry Sutton made the announcement regarding Artis at a press conference. 

"I'm thankful this process is finally over," Artis said at the press conference. "It's been a long time. It's a bit overwhelming right now."

According to the report, district attorney Jim Woodall said the charges were dropped after the case had been "resolved to the satisfaction of both parties."

Artis was accused of sexual assault and battery against a female in February 2016 and he turned himself into police in September after a misdemeanor warrant was issued for his arrest.

He was suspended from the Tar Heels football team as a result of the allegations. 

In April, the University of North Carolina announced Artis did not violate any school policy following an administrative review of the case. 

Artis said during Thursday's news conference that he hasn't decided if he will continue his football career, noting he was "keeping his options open."

          'I was wrong': Florida judge admits jailing people for pot 'haunts' him after cannabis saved his life   
Prior to this year, the state of Florida was regarded as one of the worst possible states to be caught in possession of cannabis. According to a 2009 analysis by former NORML Director Jon Gettman, no state in this country punished people more severely for minor marijuana offenses than Florida. However, thanks in part to a former Florida judge, all this is gradually changing. By October 3, for the first time in its history, the state will issue IDs to medical marijuana patients. However, according to the former judge, the law doesn't go nearly far enough. Throughout the course of his career as a Florida judge, Doug Bench hated marijuana. He admits to locking up hundreds of people for this plant and did so because he thought it was the right thing to do. While it is too late for the now-retired judge to help those whose lives he likely ruined through the persecution of pot, he is taking actions to help countless others now and in the future.

Sprowson weaved his career as an educator with his religion in a rambling justification for his actions when he addressed the court on Monday. "This is an issue of age of consent.

          Daily 3-Bet: Mohsin Triple, Staples in Limbo, Secret WeedSOP   

The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is a fresh map, a 30-day bus pass and no idea where our next afternoon poker news journey might land us.

Got a hot tip for a future 3-Bet? Tweet us @PokerListings or drop a note in the comments.

Today in the 3-Bet we find Mohsin Charania locking up a poker Triple Crown, Jamie Staples sidetracked in Romania and the 'secret' history of weed at the WSOP.

1) Charania Seals Triple Crown

For most of the past decade or so there have been three major tours that laid claim to the most prestigious tournament titles in poker:

Mohsin Charania
Elite company for Charania.
The World Poker Tour (WPT) the European Poker Tour (EPT) and the World Series of Poker (WSOP)

The EPT is now a thing of the past and with events like the Super High Roller Bowl and the burgeoning partypoker Live tour, winning a "Triple Crown" in poker might not stay linked to those 3 acronyms forever.

Still, it's a pretty dazzling accomplishment to lay claim to a title from all 3 of those poker behemoths and, up until yesterday, just 5 players had done it:

Gavin Griffin Roland de Wolfe Jake Cody Bertrand 'ElkY' Grospellier Davidi Kitai

Add one more name to that list today: Mohsin Charania.

The former EPT Grand Final winner and 2-time WPT champ put a WSOP gold bracelet on his resume yesterday in Event #52, $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em, to complete the trilogy.

The $364,438 he added to his almost $6m career earnings is far from his largest score but, as he told poker media after his win yesterday, locking up a Triple Crown still feels "pretty damn awesome."

We can imagine. Check the full write-up of his win at WSOP.com

2) Staples in Limbo in Romania

The life of a travelling poker pro/streamer like Team PokerStars Online's Jamie Staples can be pretty stressful as it is.

Jaime Staples
Stream on hold for now.

There are the ups and downs of poker variance, setting up and moving on from place to place and, of course, just navigating the basics of day-to-day life in countries where you don't speak the language or have the lay of the land.

Sometimes it can be pretty awesome, as it was last week when Staples won 5 online tournaments from Split, Croatia, and prepped for his next 45-day haul in Bucharest, Romania.

Then, unfortunately, things can take a turn pretty quickly. Upon arriving in Bucharest and going through the process of setting up a new home/grind station, getting gym memberships, buying food etc, they hit a hiccup. A major hiccup.

Despite getting the green light from their PokerStars contact prior to moving, as a Canadian Staples can't actually play from Romania. It's a .com/.eu thing.

Whatever the reason, they're out of luck. And now have to move on to get back to streaming for his large fanbase asap. It's a bummer, for sure. But given the confusion from Stars they're going to help get things back on track on their dime.

The big question now: Where should they go? Check the latest from Staples in the video below. Tell them where they should go and play in the comments.

3) The 'Secret' History of Weed at the WSOP

Let's cut to the chase: The fact that poker players, young and old, tend to smoke a lot of pot wherever they are - the World Series of Poker included - isn't exactly a 'secret.' At least to anyone that's been to/played/worked there over the last decade.

Brian Micon
Thriller dance was weed influenced. You don't say ...

That said, it's not as though there's been a lot of stuff written about it, either - or on how it may help/hinder their poker games.

We've done a deep dive on how various drugs affect your poker ability before and now Derrick Oliver Dewan has taken a crack at exposing the weed culture in a new piece for Leafly.com.

With legal recreational marijuana now in play in Nevada the piece, called "The Secret History of Cannabis at the World Series of Poker," explores the pervasiveness, proliferation and risks of weed culture among poker players.

Dutch Boyd, Brian Micon and Allen Kessler are among the pros to give their takes. Check it out at the link above.

          Daily 3-Bet: Monster Yoon, Battling Mercier, Alive w/ Poker   

The PokerListings Daily 3-Bet is a sore tummy and a faint headache but the intestinal fortitude to tough it out in the dog-eat-dog afternoon poker news war.

Have something you'd like to see featured in a future 3-Bet? Tell us in the comments.

Today in the 3-Bet we find Brian Yoon showing he's a real poker monster, Jason Mercier fights on and the WSOP is alive with great poker stories.

1) Yoon Goes 3x, Wins $1m

27-year-old Californian Brian Yoon isn't necessarily the first name you think of when you start bandying about multiple WSOP bracelet winners.

brianyoon
Yoon strikes again.

It's about time he entered the conversation, though.

Yoon steamrolled to his third career WSOP bracelet yesterday and a monstrous $1,094,349 payout in the 2017 WSOP Monster Stack event.

He knocked out the final 4 players to seal the deal, too, and give himself yet another win over a massive tournament field.

Yoon's previous two bracelet wins? The $1,111 Little One for One Drop in 2013 for $663,727 and the $5k NL 8-Handed event in 2014 for $633,341.

That's over $2.4m in WSOP earnings alone (of $4.2m total live). 

Without, you know, beating the monster metaphor to death ... that's a 'monster' of a poker resume. Congrats to him. Enjoy that moniez!

2) Mercier in Final 23 of $1,500 NL

It's safe to say, after last year's 2-bracelet, 11-cash, POY winning WSOP, Jason Mercier was going to have a tough time matching it in 2017. So far, that's been the case.

Jason Mercier 5816
No quit in JMerc.

While Mercier has 5 cashes (and one FT) for about $100k total - a massively successful summer for 98% of the poker world - it likely hasn't quite measured up to the high expectations he puts on himself every summer.

Mercier is the epitome of a grinder, though, and equally likely to put three final tables in the bag this week. And that hot streak could start today as he's in the final 23 to start Day 3 of Event #52, $1,500 No-Limit Hold'em.

With 457k in chips Mercier's is 9th heading in but a couple of nice pots early and he could seize control. The fact he's even in a $1,500 is proof Mercier is in grind mode and willing to do the work for bracelet #6.

Will it happen today? Tune in to the final table live stream on the PokerGO app to find out.

JJ Volpe just one of amazing WSOP stories.

We've heard some incredible poker stories over the course of our 12 years at the World Series of Poker but every year we're still surprised by how many more are out there to find.

While we met our own, battle-hardened survivor with a lifelong relationship with poker, ESPN's Bernard Lee told the story of 69-year old poker player Warren "Grumpa" Griffith.

We won't give away all the twists and turns (although the intro above speaks to a few of them) but suffice to say it's an amazing story and a life intertwined with poker in ways most of us can't imagine.

Go there and give it a read asap.

          Comment on A Final Appeal: Open Letter to All-Star Free Agent Gordon Hayward by Paul Johnson   
Well-stated. It's a rare opportunity in today's NBA (or in any era of the NBA) for a player to spend his entire career with one franchise and go down in history as one of the greatest players of that franchise. Gordon has a legitimate chance to do that with the Utah Jazz, if he stays. A similar opportunity appeared to be outweighed by other factors, with regards to Kevin Durant and the OKC Thunder, in Durant's decision to leave OKC in free agency last season. Hopefully that won't be the case with Gordon Hayward, and he will make Utah his home for a very long time over a very long, successful career.
