1980 United States Olympic Team Dave Christian Jersey

While everyone recalls the " Miracle on Ice " from February 22, 1980, many do not recall that the United States' victory over the Soviet Union was not the gold medal winning game. In fact, the tournament format in 1980 did not even have a gold medal final, as the teams were not placed in a single elimination bracket, as is the case with the Olympics and World Championships of today. Back in 1980, the format had the top two teams from both the Blue and Red Divisions of First Round group pl...

Ahead of Monday’s memorial, Magic Johnson calls Kobe Bryant ‘bigger than life’

LOS ANGELES — Ahead of what will surely be another emotional day in a month that has been stacked with them, Magic Johnson was trying his best to deliver his sentiments But Johnson, a Hall of Fame player and former Lakers executive who has always been more efficient in his game than with his words, struggled to summarize it all. He was there at the beginning, when Bryant sparked the front office with a legendary predraft workout. He was there after the end, standing on stage in Chicago with the ...

The London Stone.

We've written about it before. I have a thing about it--probably because for now I live a lot of the time in California in an "old" 22-year-old home. Back East, in DC, NYC and Nantucket, and other parts of the U.S. where people do not use "party" as a verb, there's much older stuff, of course, sometimes going back to the 1600s--but nothing like you stumble upon every moment in dear old Albion and Western Europe. Sorry, rock and cave paintings and U.S. mound-builder relics don't cut it for me...

TIM JOHNSON GALLERY - Step By Step Brown Trout Watercolor

Last weekend I found Tim Johnson at the Southwest Wildlife Exposition in one of three different Orvis spaces spread out over the event.  As we walked up, he was working on a Timmy Grips and we talked about the many hundred grips that he had done last year for a  limited edition series of Helios fly rods in both freshwater and saltwater models.  There are largely gone though you might find one still at your local shop.Tim had also recently finished a brown trout watercolor and I asked if he'd pas...

Insiders say Morgan Stanley's $13 billion E-Trade deal could kick off a buying spree for wealth-management fintechs. Here's why banks are ready to 'open up their pocketbooks' and what it means for startup valuations.

Venture and growth-stage investors tell Business Insider Morgan Stanley's planned acquisition of E-Trade for $13 billion is a sign of further dealmaking to coming in 2020 for fintechs in the wealth management space.  The deal shows banks' recent willingness to look externally for ways to evolve or expand their process, even if it's a steep price tag, investors said. Banks also might not be the only acquirers, as insurance or tech companies could be in the market as they look to jump start thei...

There's a dark side to Boris Johnson's government and even his allies are fed up with it

Since his landslide election win in December, the British Prime Minister has attempted to frame his personal success as the moment Brits could confidently move on from Brexit and into a bright new future. Yet despite Johnson's sunny optimism, a near-constant stream of darker, nastier messages has been seeping out of 10 Downing Street.

MSNBC Contributor’s Misogynistic Smear of Bernie Staffers: ‘Island of Misfit Black Girls’

MSNBC contributor Dr. Jason Johnson (he would like us to not forget that he has a Ph.D., and I’ll do my best not to throughout this piece) said Friday on SiriusXM’s The Karen Hunter Show that the “racist white liberals” who apparently love Bernie Sanders (news to me) are coming after black people who don’t fall into Sanders’ so-called “orthodoxy” (again, that Bernie Sanders’ presidential campaign represents an orthodoxy, in the context of the Democratic Party, I have never heard before). Dr. Joh...

Ilhan Omar’s Challenger Is Literally on the Run From the Law

It’s not unheard-of for members of Congress to resign their seats because of serious legal trouble. Now Republican House candidate Danielle Stella is trying to achieve the inverse: getting elected to Congress while being wanted by the law. Stella, one of the five Republicans competing for the right to take on Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) in November, has been wanted for months on an arrest warrant for felony shoplifting. Even while facing arrest, though, she’s managed to achieve a respectable fundrais...

UC Davis Veterinarian Returns From Australia After Treating Burned Wildlife

DAVIS (CBS13) — The fires in Australia are out and after spring rains, the grasses and vegetation are returning. So are the animals, thanks to the work of some dedicated veterinarians, including a couple from UC Davis. A veterinarian who pioneered wound treatment for animals using tilapia skin put her skills to work treating over a hundred burned animals. UCD veterinarian Jamie Peyton, who is the Chief of integrative medicine, knew she wanted to help. She was one of the thousands who came from a...

The Enduring Mystery of Malcolm X’s Assassination

Friday marks 55 years since Malcolm X, one of the 20th century’s most important black figures, was assassinated at age 39 while speaking at the Audubon Ballroom in Harlem, New York, on Feb. 21, 1965. In the more than half a century since, what happened that day has remained the subject of debate. Three members of the Nation of Islam (NOI) — Talmadge Hayer or Thomas Hagan (a.k.a Mujahid Abdul Halim), Norman Butler (a.k.a Muhammad Abdul Aziz) and Thomas Johnson (a.k.a Khalil Islam) — were con...

‘Knives Out 2’: Don’t Expect to Learn About Benoit Blanc’s Backstory

If you were mesmerized by Daniel Craig‘s Southern detective Benoit Blanc in Knives Out and thought to yourself, “I really hope a possible sequel sheds more light on where that character came from,” I have some bad news. Writer/director Rian Johnson, who is hard at work on a follow-up that will reunite him with Craig, says he’s not interested in exploring Benoit Blanc’s backstory in future movies. Benoit Blanc’s Backstory Will Seemingly Remain a Mystery Aside from an offhanded mention that h...

Microsoft execs explain why they don't require a college degree for entry-level positions (MSFT)

Jobs at Microsoft are highly sought-after, but many entry-level positions don't require a college degree. The company avoids ruling out applicants based on prior credentials, focusing instead on soft skills and a willingness to learn. According to executives, this approach helps bolster diversity at Microsoft. Microsoft is one of several major tech companies to widen its hiring practices in an effort to recruit from a more diverse talent base. Visit Business Insider's homepage for more stories...

Lots of notable clemency news and notes and commentaries after Prez Trump's flourish of mercy

Unsurprisingly, a number of reporters and commentators have lots to report and comment upon in the wake of Trump's latest clemency work (basics noted here and here and here).  Here are just a few pieces that seem like must reads in full (with a taste to whet appetites): From the Washintong Post, "White House assembles team of advisers to guide clemency process as Trump considers more pardons": The White House is moving to take more direct control over pardons and commutations, with President Tr...

The 11 Criminals Granted Clemency by Trump Had One Thing in Common: Connections

The process bypassed the formal procedures used by past presidents and was driven instead by friendship, fame, personal empathy and a shared sense of persecution.

Assange Claims Rohrabacher Offered Him A Doozy Of A Pardon Quid Pro Quo

It’s one of the few areas where the President has nearly unchecked power. President Trump issued a raft of pardons this week, but news out of London on Wednesday raises questions about whether the tool has been a bargaining chip since the early months of Trump’s presidency. The question comes in the case of Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, currently fighting extradition to the U.S. from London. In a court hearing on Wednesday, a lawyer for Assange reportedly told a British judge a bizarre st...

U.K. Government Announces New ‘Points-Based’ Immigration System, Mandating Foreign Workers Prove They ‘Can Speak English’

Boris Johnson’s government unveiled plans to end what it called the U.K.’s dependence on “cheap low-skilled labor” and deliver on its pledge to halt freedom of movement from the European Union after Brexit. Under a points-based immigration system to come into effect on Jan. 1, 2021, workers must prove they can speak English, have a verified job offer and meet a points threshold based on their specific skills, qualifications and prospective salaries, according to a government policy paper pu...

"If your conversation during a presidential election is about some guy wearing a dress and whether he, she or it can go to the locker room with their daughter, that’s not a winning formula for most people."

Said Mike Bloomberg, just last year:Via "‘Some guy wearing a dress’: Bloomberg reference to transgender people in 2019 video prompts outcry" (WaPo).The "he, she, or it" is especially bad. But if you like the kind of blunt speech we've been getting from Trump, you might welcome a Democratic candidate who does the same thing.But it's inconsistent with Mike's presentation of himself as the one who speaks in a "presidential" style, as he does in this ad, which put at #1.

‘Knives Out’ Honest Trailer: Rian Johnson Combines A-Listers, A-Holes and A-gatha Christie

Since Star Wars: The Last Jedi got a bunch of manbabies riled up about minority characters, female empowerment, and whiny entitled douchebros, writer/director Rian Johnson decided to take it one step further with Knives Out. The whodunit in the vein of Agatha Christie isn’t quite as much of a mystery as it would seem, mostly since we find out who the killer is roughly halfway through the movie. But of course, the plot at the center of Knives Out is a donut hole within a donut hole, so there’s s...

Let’s pick a Left-Handed All-Time Greats XI

Wasim Akram (via YouTube) Here’s a fact for you: most left-handed batsmen are right-handed. Okay, we haven’t actually delved into the data to uncover that, so that may not technically be a fact. We’re pretty sure it’s true though. Batting is a thing you do with both hands. Just because cricket calls one stance ‘left-handed’ and the opposite one ‘right-handed’ doesn’t mean much at all really. No left-hand batsman has scored more Test runs than Alastair Cook. However, if you’...
