Whicker: John Beilein the latest to learn that NBA, NCAA share little but leather

Nine months ago there was no more respected college basketball coach than John Beilein. Nine months from now you might be able to say the same thing. As of now, Beilein joins the battered list of those entranced, and capsized, by the NBA’s siren song. At 66 he ended his 12-year tour at Michigan to become the coach of the Cleveland Cavaliers. After they lost 40 of 54 games he walked away from the rest of his contract. Beilein and Michigan were in the 2013 and 2018 NCAA championship games. His pla...

Two Tales About the Rule of Law

A recent opinion piece in the National Post by Leonid Sarota and Asher Honickman explained how the rule of law functions: it constrains government and when people perceive it to overstep, they can challenge it; but it also requires individuals to restrain their actions and use the legal sysem and when they are unsuccessful, they must accept it.

Job interviews can turn you into a bundle of nerves even when everything goes according to plan. So when something unexpected happens, it can add a whole new level of stress to the experience.

The Need For Civic Protest

Protest is meant to bring a reality that lurks beyond the sight lines of most people crashing down in front of them. When resistance to the current order arises, citizens are put to the test. We are forced to reveal where our allegiances lie. What are we willing to support, or do, in the pursuit of rightness and justice? – Maclean’s

The Prudential Center rafters also welcomed the likes of Ken Daneyko, Scott Niedermayer, Martin Brodeur and Patrik Elias to the exclusive class in Devils’ history.

Blue Jackets Find Early Power Play Success with Paul MacLean

The Columbus Blue Jackets have finally hired a new power play coach. Paul MacLean officially took over the job on Thursday before the Blue Jackets matched up against the Detroit Red Wings. This has been a topic of debate over the past few seasons with many fans in Columbus begging for a change. Their wish came true as Brad Larsen is no longer leading the power play. Larsen will remain in charge of the penalty kill, so he’ll still be making an impact on special teams. According to head coac...

Word of the week: Triplex

What does triplex mean to you? And how do you pronounce the word? Until last week, it wouldn’t have occurred to me to ask those questions. A triplex, I would have told you with full confidence, is any three-unit residence on a single lot. It could be three units in a single building; a “big house” plus a duplex in the back; or three side-by-side units of equal or varying sizes. My Platonic ideal of a triplex, in the Los Angeles neighborhood where I grew up (Miracle Mile). Big main unit ...

Not only because I have never read him, but the books are republished in the new 'softer' Penguin Modern Classics binding and I've fallen in love with them.
