Ducks want a closer look at top prospects Max Jones and Troy Terry

ANAHEIM — Bob Murray, the Ducks’ general manager and interim coach, called Dallas Eakins, coach of the San Diego Gulls, and asked him who his best player was in a game the other night against the Colorado Eagles.

Their answers were identical, so Murray recalled left wing Max Jones from the Gulls and inserted him into the Ducks’ lineup for Wednesday’s 1-0 victory over the Vancouver Canucks, which ended their seven-game l...

Rookie experience for Caleb Ferguson included tutorial from a left-handed legend

GLENDALE, Ariz. >> As tutorials go, a young left-handed pitcher couldn’t do any better. Dodgers lefty Caleb Ferguson made his postseason debut with a scoreless inning in relief during Game 1 of the NLDS against the Atlanta Braves, striking out two of the three batters he faced. In the dugout immediately afterward, though, he wasn’t happy. “I told Honey (Dodgers pitching coach Rick Honeycutt) after I came out that inning, ‘Hey, dude, this curveball is just not coming out of my hand the way I reme...

Perfect Album: Band in Boston

In the late 1950s, New England's answer to Maynard Ferguson was trumpeter Herb Pomeroy. Pomeroy not only was a high-energy jazz player, he also led crack bands of players and soloists. The difference was that while Ferguson was massively prolific as a Hollywood and New York recording artist and performer. Pomeroy was a low-key educator who remained in the Boston area. The other big difference is that Ferguson often soloed. Pomeroy seldom did so on songs performed by his big band, preferring ins...

Books - The Square and The Tower by Niall Ferguson

Two organizing ideas about how society is organized can be described as hierarchies and networks. Both have existed throughout human history.  Understanding social organization is important because the structures and dynamics of the ways of organizing social life at a marcosystemic level influence behavior at the microsystemic level. Most of the macrosystemic organizing structures and dynamics are unconscious and as such, people don't understand why they think what they think, why they fee...
