Actually, there are many reasons to anticipate a possible Stefon Diggs trade

Making too much of history can be, at times, as dangerous as failing to heed its warnings. That is to say: Presuming that something will happen again just because it has happened before is fraught with peril — just as is is believing that something that has never happened before will continue to stay dormant. Framed within the context of what Vikings GM Rick Spielman had to say about wide receiver Stefon Diggs at the Scouting Combine on Tuesday, this provides some warning not to be to carried aw...

Designer Profile: William Sawaya

Eschewing the notion that art is in the eye of the beholder, architect and designer William Sawaya considers the inherent artistry of anything—be it a painting, a candlestick, a table lamp, or a chair—to be connected to the expertise and dedication of the artist (or designer). He believes that things made carefully, with respect for the material, attention to detail, and deep commitment to craft, have intrinsic value as art, especially since they are “practically unique, strongly individual and ...

Spring Training Report: White Sox’ Luis Robert, Other Possible Future All-Stars Take Field

CHICAGO (CBS) —  Spring Training offers a fresh start around MLB, insofar as that’s possible with baseball working through the aftermath of the Houston Astros cheating scandal. The exhibition games have started. And while they mean nothing in terms of the standings, they can mean a lot for players’ futures. The league’s prominent up-and-comers have an opportunity to secure their places on opening day rosters or at least make their case for a call-up in the weeks to follow. Luis Robert looks pois...

Relationship Selling and the Competitive Advantage of Being Likable

There are bad ideas, and then there are shockingly bad ideas. Occasionally, it makes sense to stop and examine these bad ideas, the poor thinking or lack of experience that produces them, and provide better guidance on how to think about what is good and right and true in a modern sales approach. False: Relationship Selling Is Dead You read this idea in a Harvard Business Review post by Brent Adamson and Matt Dixon, authors of what turned out to be of the most critical sales books in the last ...

Inside Tecovas, the 'Warby Parker of cowboy boots' that just raised $15 million as its $300 boots continue to take the multibillion-dollar boot industry by its horns

Tecovas is a direct-to-consumer cowboy boot retailer that also has brick-and-mortar stores in Austin, Texas. The startup has earned comparisons to direct brands like Warby Parker and Glossier for its lower price points and online offerings. It just raised $15 million in new equity funding as the company continues to open stores across Texas. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories. There's a reason cowboy boot retailer Tecovas has been dubbed the "Warby Parker of cowboy boots." The...

Deeper – “Lake Song”

Last month, the Chicago post-punk group Deeper announced they would soon return with their sophomore album, Auto-Pain. A while before that, we had already heard the infectious single "Run," and the announcement came with another earworm of a new track in "This Heat." Today, the band are back with a third … More »

2020 NHL Trade Deadline: Fisher’s Winners & Losers

By my count, there were 30 deals on deadline day involving 55 players and 25 draft picks. That included 36 legitimate NHLers, plus 19 minor-leaguers or prospects on the move on Feb. 24. Dating back to Feb. 5 — when Toronto acquired Jack Campbell and Kyle Clifford from Los Angeles — there were exactly 50 trades leading up to the 2020 deadline. It sure felt like a busy month, with business picking up as per usual but even more so than anticipated. Ironically, I posted a poll on Twitter sett...

Winter storm watches were in effect Tuesday from Peoria, Illinois, to Detroit and Toledo, Ohio, as two storms prepare to merge and unleash one of the biggest snowfalls of the season to the region.The dynamic storm has shifted its track farther to the southeast, causing the area's heaviest snow to pivot. Detroit is among the areas in the new bull's-eye.Back on Nov. 11 and 12, a storm brought 9.2 inches of snow to Detroit Metro Airport. The storm coming Tuesday night might not quite add up...

Marana Blake Gives Off California Vibes In New Track

If Marana Blake doesn’t get any traction with the track California Waves, then I hope Lana Del Rey cuts it. In fact, Lana Del Rey hasn’t released a song that gives off California vibes in a long time. Back to Marana Blake. She’s an indie singer-songwriter born in Chicago. She  released a few tracks as well as several cover videos. We added the track to our Indie Invaders Playlist. Give it a stream.

Swing District Dem Says ‘No One’ Left in the Presidential Race Will Be ‘Helpful’ in Her Reelection

Representative Lauren Underwood (D., Ill.) said at an event on Monday that "no one" running for the Democratic presidential nomination would be helpful to her in the 2020 general elections."Some people are neutral and some people are not and no one in my opinion that’s running on the Democratic ticket is helpful to me in my race," Underwood told an audience at the City Club of Chicago, responding to a question about whether the rise of Senator Bernie Sanders (I., Vt.) would hurt down-ticket Demo...

Blackhawks’ Lucas Carlsson Makes His Debut

In 2015, the Chicago Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup. This season, they’re last in the Central Division. Something needs to change.  In the Feb. 23 game against the Dallas Stars, well-seasoned players like Patrick Kane swarmed the ice with typical high energy, but something was off. Five minutes into the second period, he gained possession of the puck and began charging the goal, but was forced to flip the puck at the last second, right into Dallas goalie Anton Khudobin.  Related: Top 5 Cap...

Blackhawks’ Deadline Reactions & Game Updates

It’s officially official. The 2020 trade deadline has come and gone, and as expected the Chicago Blackhawks have parted ways with defenseman Erik Gustafsson. It wasn’t as expected, but they also said goodbye to goaltender Robin Lehner. Both players were very popular with their teammates and the fanbase. And it certainly doesn’t help that the return for them was rather underwhelming. Let’s dive into these two deadline moves, as well as touch on some highlights from the last three games. Good...

We Can't Pay You What You're Worth

Myron Silberstein's Paying the Piper: A New Model for Employment in Storefront Theatre follows a music directing engagement he accepted in 2010, and how an $800 stipend ended up becoming a dangerously low wage when calculated per hour: How naïve, exactly, had I been? I still have the production schedule, filed among my mementos (after all, this production was my first entry into Chicago’s theatre scene). From first rehearsal to final performance, I worked a total of 88 hours. This amounted to an...

Shrouded in steel: Scourge of New York City scaffolding turns 40

Bennie Green: The Swingin'est

Bennie Green had a distinctive trombone. He played in a powdery, insistent staccato style seasoned with the Chicago blues. A member of the challenging Earl "Fatha" Hines and Charlie Ventura bands, he also recorded in bop ensembles in the 1940s. In the 1950s, Green was a sideman on numerous sessions, including the Miles Davis Sextet with Sonny Rollins in 1951, the year he began recording as a leader. One of his best blues albums is The Swingin'est, recorded for Vee-Jay in November 1958. Co-led ...

Q&A Interview With Strange Music’s Very Own Joey Cool

What was the earliest hip hop memory you can recall? I remember my first concert ever pretty clearly actually. I was like 6-7 years old at the time. My parents took me to see MC Hammer haha. I remember the Kansas City Chiefs players beating on the drum on stage! It was at the Kemper Arena in Kansas City. I remember seeing Hammer & all 87 of his dancers & shit on stage, hahaha. Phenomenal. I think that’s when I knew I wanted to entertain. That was big.   Who’re some artists that inspire you? I d...

How the Human Voice Works

The human voice. Much like fingerprints, our voices are unique and help to identify us. Some of us pick up accents and speech patterns and sound very similar to family members. To this day, my sisters and I pretend to be each other to try to fool my parents on the phone. But they can always tell us apart. That’s because the human voice is so unique. But why do we all sound different? Today, we’ll be taking a tour of the amazing systems that make up the human voice: the respiratory system, the ph...

Did the Blackhawks make the right moves at the NHL trade deadline

The Blackhawks were always going to be sellers leading up to the NHL trade deadline but the question was to what degree? Chicago got its answer on Monday. After a quiet morning, the Blackhawks struck two deals in the final hour: Erik Gustafsson to the Calgary Flames in exchange for a third-round pick in 2020 and, more notably, Robin Lehner to the Vegas Golden Knights for a second-round selection in 2020, goaltender Malcolm Subban and defenseman prospect Slava Demin.

Former Empire Actor Jussie Smollett Pleads Not Guilty in Alleged Hoax Attack Case

(CHICAGO) — Former “Empire” actor Jussie Smollett pleaded not guilty Monday to restored charges that accuse him of staging a racist, homophobic attack against himself last year in Chicago and falsely reporting to police that the phony attack was real. His lawyer, Tina Glandian, entered the not guilty pleas on his behalf to six counts of felony disorderly conduct. She also told Judge James B. Linn that she has asked the Illinois Supreme Court to halt the case. A somber looking Smollett, 37...

Forensic Architecture redeploys surveillance-state tech to combat state-sponsored violence

The specter of constant surveillance hangs over all of us in ways we don’t even fully understand, but it is also possible to turn the tools of the watchers against them. Forensic Architecture is exhibiting several long-term projects at the Museum of Art and Design in Miami that use the omnipresence of technology as a way to expose crimes and violence by oppressive states. Over seven years Eyal Weizman and his team have performed dozens of investigations into instances of state-sponsored violence...
