Amazon's monopsony power: the other antitrust white meat

In 2017, law student Lina Khan shifted the debate on Amazon and antitrust with a seminal paper called Amazon's Antitrust Paradox, which used Amazon's abusive market dominance to criticize the Reagan-era shift in antitrust enforcement, which rewrote the criteria for antitrust enforcement, so that antitrust no longer concerned itself with preventing monopoly, and only focused on "consumer harm" in the form of higher prices. Khan's paper jumpstarted an important intellectual shift in the globa...

‘Star Trek’ at 10: J.J. Abrams’ 2009 Film Reboot Reinvigorated the Franchise with a Perfect Cast

Released ten years ago today, on May 8, 2009, director J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek reboot is the cinematic equivalent of a rock band going mainstream. It’s a hit remix version of an old song. Critically and commercially, the film was an unqualified success. Holding steady at 94%, edging out classic big-screen entries like The Wrath of Khan and First Contact, it remains the highest rated Star Trek movie on Rotten Tomatoes, as well as the top-grossing film in the series according to Box Office ...

Monstrous rumors stoke hostility to Pakistan's anti-polio drive

"I will stab anyone who comes to my house with polio drops," Khan growled, refusing to be filmed or photographed as he shopped in a fly-blown bazaar on the outskirts of Peshawar, a city scarred by years on the frontline of Islamist militancy in Pakistan. This dangerous hostility to immunization teams flared last week after religious hardliners in the city spread false rumors, raising a scare on social media that some children were being poisoned and dying from contaminated polio vaccines. Mobs...

Chaka Khan Used Fabric Dye To Get Her Iconic Red Hair Color

Chaka Khan has always been larger than life to me. I remember sitting in the back of my mom’s car as she blasted the Waiting to Exhale soundtrack on repeat, and I’d always sing along when “My Funny Valentine” came on (even if I didn't understand the words at six years old).When I first saw the face behind those soft chords — her bright smile, red lipstick, and flowing burgundy hair — she reminded me of the many other strong Black women in my family. The cool aunt who gave me my first glitter ey...

Whicker: Danny Roman brings it back home in title fight against T.J. Doheny

Danny Roman has been a world champion for a year now. His life has changed. He says his identity hasn’t. “There are a lot more cousins I didn’t know I had,” Roman said, laughing alongside Eddie Gonzalez, his trainer and manager. He had just come down from a makeshift ring at Muscle Beach on Tuesday, having sparred against the wind for a few minutes as a DJ and a ring announcer sounded off. It’s all part of Matchroom Boxing’s promotion of Friday night’s fights. Roman hasn’t done this long enough ...

Whicker: Can Steve Rolls avoid getting rocked by Gennady Golovkin?

LOS ANGELES — The phone rang as Steve Rolls was leaving the gym in Mississauga, Ontario last week. He learned he’d been handed the Rolls of a lifetime. On June 8 he will fight Gennady Golovkin in Madison Square Garden. Rolls meets Thunder. He is 19-0 and 35 years old, accustomed to fighting in Spryfield and Chicoutimi and Halifax, with a stopover at the Marriott in Ogden, Utah. He is unranked and unknown, even to Golovkin. “I know he’s undefeated and he’s Canadian,” Golovkin said as the two figh...

Khan will not retire on Crawford loss

Amir Khan is not ready to walk away from boxing after Saturday's painful and controversial defeat to WBO welterweight king Terence Crawford. Former unified light-welterweight champion Khan was a heavy underdog heading into the New York showdown with the pound-for-pound ranked Crawford in New York. After being sent to the canvas in the first round, Khan was comfortably behind on all three judges' scorecards when the undefeated champion caught him with a low blow.

Amir Khan: Former world champion vows to fight again because 'I don't want to end my career like that'

Amir Khan insists he will fight again because he does not want a career defined by bravery to end with accusations of being a quitter. The 32-year-old had been dropped and outboxed by the dazzling Terence Crawford at Madison Square Garden before the WBO welterweight champion caught Khan with a low blow in the sixth round. There is some confusion as to what happened next with some accusing Khan of deciding against carrying on but others insisting it was his trainer, Virgil Hunter, who made the fi...

Pakistan's Prime Minister Khan in Iran to talk security, ties

Pakistan's Prime Minister Imran Khan arrived in Iran on Sunday to discuss security and regional issues, Iranian state TV reported, a day after Islamabad urged Tehran to act against militants behind killings in Pakistan's Baluchistan province.

There's no quit in Khan insists McGuigan

Former world champion Barry McGuigan has insisted there are no doubts over the courage of Amir Khan following his defeat by Terence Crawford. Saturday's WBO welterweight title fight ended in controversial fashion when champion Crawford, who had knocked Khan down in the first round, won with a sixth-round stoppage after his British opponent was unable to continue following an illegal low blow.

Things to Ponder, Reparations, Gun Control & Criminal Voting Rights

Akram Khan Completely Overhauls ‘Giselle’

No more sweet village maiden, caddish duke, or white-clad dancing spirits. “Khan’s Giselle has a new score, new décor and costumes, a contemporary setting — migrant laborers in ghostly abandoned factories — and above all a new kind of dancing, which draws on kathak and ballet, on contemporary dance and everyday gesture, on animals and machines.” – The New Yorker

Crawford vs. Khan is here; Crawford vs. Spence must be next

There is nothing wrong with Terence Crawford defending his welterweight title against Amir Khan on Saturday from Madison Square Garden (on pay-per-view). Khan will provide excitement until he gets knocked out. Remember, Khan befuddled Canelo Alvarez with his boxing skills until the inevitable happened – Alvarez caught Khan in the sixth and knocked him out nearly three years ago at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. While this fight lasts, it will be exciting. But we want more. We want to see Crawford ...

The “Khan” might be the most otherworldly BMW bike ever made

Pretty much bridging the gap between concept bikes and concept art for games and movies, Mehmet Doruk Erdem’s “Khan” is an eclectic mix of unbelievable, dangerous, and beautiful. However, if you’ve followed Mehmet’s work in the past, you know exactly what level of aesthetic beauty the Turkish designer works on. Khan, in many ways is classic Mehmet, but at the same time it’s just surreal for us mere mortals who have, up until now, only seen relatively normal-looking motorbikes.Erdem’s “Khan” conc...

Crawford defends vs Khan, seeks win first and respect after

NEW YORK (AP) — Sometimes it bothers Terence Crawford. He will dominate a fight so completely that it’s hard to find minutes, forget about entire rounds, that he didn’t win. Yet afterward, rather than earning him praise for his package of power and precision, what follows is criticism of the beaten opponent. “When you’ve got […]
