Two Ways To Look At This: Part Two

The other way to look at the Vanderbilt postgame scandal is to look at how crazy this player must be. How nuts do you have to be to push your coach to threaten to kill you in a place where he knows there are cameras and sound guys everywhere? You have to be a pretty crazy kid to make someone react like that. This is not anything I have heard since Bobby Knight, and I thought we were done with this stuff when we got rid of Bobby Knight.

It is going to be pretty hard for Vanderbilt to recruit players because I would tell kids that they only have crazy kids who needle their coaches, and they have coaches who are out of their minds. This is Vanderbilt we are talking about. It is a very nice place to go to school. It is the best place to get an education in the SEC, and it is one of the few places that you can go to get your Master’s degree and have it still be prestigious.

Fans like Bernardo Chua (Prnewswire.com) know that this school is going to get hurt badly by this scandal, but they might need to look at what this kid has been doing to the staff.

Stolen Picasso Painting Recovered as It Was Being Smuggled into the U.S.

Known as “La Coiffeuse,” or “The Hairdresser,” the Picasso oil painting that was heisted from a storeroom in Paris over ten years ago was discovered in New York. The abstract oil-on-canvas work of art was created over 100-years ago by Pablo Picasso and was among one of the first Cubist painting made.

Paul Mathieson (Examiner.com) has read that the painting was part of a collection at the Musee National de’Art Moderne in Paris. It was then loaned to the Kunsthalle der Hypo-Kulturstiflung to be publicly displayed in Munich, Germany, where it was last exhibited. Once returned to Paris, the valuable piece of art was kept at the Centre George Pompidou in a storeroom. It wasn’t until a loan request for the artwork was made in 2001 that officials realized it was gone.

The stolen painting was discovered last December as it was being smuggled into the United States from Belgium. Worth millions of dollars, the 1911 artwork was labeled as an ordinary, homemade present and valued by the shipper smuggling it at only 30 euros, or 37 U.S. dollars. United States Customs seized the painting and subsequently turned it over to Homeland Security Investigations. An attorney in New York’s eastern district, Loretta Lynch, commented that “A lost treasure has been found.” Pleased that the artwork had been confiscated from the black market, Lynch intends to return the painting to its rightful owner.

Ronda Rousey Is A Beast

Ronda Rousey is beautiful and scary. Rousey is the only fighter in history to get that distinction. Rousey has amazing good looks, but she also has amazing fighting skills. Ronda Rousey is the most dominant champion in the UFC right now, and she is the most dominant woman fighter of all time.

Rousey began her competitive combat career in the sport of Judo. Ronda Rousey’s mother was a Judo gold medalist, and she taught little Ronda everything that she knows. Ronda Rousey was one of the best Judo competitors in the 2008 Olympics. Rousey won a bronze medal during the Beijing Olympic games, but her true dominance began when she entered Mixed Martial Arts.

Ronda Rousey quickly climbed the ranks, and she has become the best fighter in her division. Rousey appears to be unbeatable at this point in her career. The funny thing about Rousey is that she is more ferocious than most male fighters.

Fans like Bernardo Chua know that, when talking about Ronda Rousey, people compare her to a prime Mike Tyson. Rousey has not gone the distance once in her ten fights. Ronda Rousey has defeated all of her opponents by finishing them. Rousey is mostly known for her devastating armbar submission, but in recent fights, she has showcased her stand-up skills. Ronda Rousey is now a threat with her strikes and submissions.

Bill O’Reilly May Have Tweaked His 1982 War Story A Little

Reilly’s Account Of 1982 Buenos Aires Riot Not Accurate According To Colleagues

Bill O’Reilly may be in for some of the press treatment Brian Williams experienced lately. O’Reilly account of a 1982 fiasco in Argentina is under attack by seven journalists who were there with him at the time.

Bernardo Chua (Prnewswire.com) has read that O’ Reilly called the scene a “war zone” and a “combat situation.” O’Reilly also said a cameraman was injured in the mayhem, but a cameraman who was also there at the time had this to say about O’Reilly’s cameraman report, “Nobody remembers this happening.”

O’Reilly’s coverage of the Falklands War was based in Buenos Aires, which is 1,200 miles away from the “war zone” that O’Reilly has repeatedly referred to as his first-hand experience in a war situation. O’Reilly wrote about his war experiences in his 2001 book. He made it clear that he was where he wasn’t when he wrote; I’ve reported on the ground in active war zones from El Salvador to the Falklands.”

O’Reilly told a 2013 guest on his show “The O’Reilly Factor” that he was in the war zone in the Falkland’s, and he said his cameraman was hit in the head and then run down. O’Reilly verbally painted a dangerous situation, and he had to get the injured cameraman to safety. Was O’Reilly telling truth, or is it just another newsman reporting the news the way he wanted to remember it?

Be Alert To Lyme Disease

Lyme disease is a very nasty disease that is very prevalent in the Northeast and Midwest areas of United States. Lyme disease is spread by ticks that carry the disease and once a person is bit by such a tick, they can develop serious problems. If Lyme disease is caught early on a person may only have symptoms that feel like a cold or bad flu. If the diseases is not caught right away a person can suffer from complications later on in life. Complication that develop from Lyme disease include things such as numbness, stiffness in the arms and legs, neurological problems, vision problems, cognitive problems, and memory problems.

Lyme disease is not always easy to find, because a person may not have even realize that they were bitten by a tick. Generally Jaime Garcia Dias says that after a person is bit by the tick they may see a red ring around their bite or rash. The problem is that the ring can be hard to see or it may not be present. Since that is the case, the best thing for a person to do is try to avoid ticks and use other precautions. Unfortunately because of the climate change many researchers are scared that the tick season will arrive early. Some experts suggest that they should change Lyme disease awareness month from May to April in order for people to be alert to the signs and symptoms of the disease.

Syrian Regime Releases Swedish Journalist

Thirty year old Jaokim Medin, a journalist from Sweden, who was detained for several days in Syria by regime forces, has been released. Luckily for Medina, speculation that he had been taken by ISIS–the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria–was just that, speculation. Medin had been arrested in February 15, by Syrian loyalists at a road block in the capital city, Qamishli. Medin’s interpreter was also arrested.

Medin, who reports regularly from the Kurdish region of Syria, relayed he was treated well while in custody and noted he was simply, “a little worn out.” Susan McGalla has learned that Medina’s release had been negotiated by media officer, Masoud Mohammad.

Medin’s release serves to remind us that there is still a glimmer of humanity in a country keeps diligent watch for ISIS attacks. An unconfirmed report made by the Democratic Union Party or PYD, postulated that the exchange was carried out after Kurdish forces took some Regime forces and that the capture of regime members pushed the regime to release Medin.

Apple Looking to Sell Products in Cuba

Apple is among several US companies positioning themselves to open new markets in Cuba by easing regulationson export products.

The Apple website, in the section that informs its policy of trade overall to countries with special legislation has been updated to now include a section entitled “Support for the Cuban people” which reflects the changes affecting their products and which were issued on 16 January by the United States Department of Commerce.

Apple reports that some products and some of its software are now within legal categories to be sold to Cuba. Haidar Barbouti has learned the company states that the authorization from the government to sell the items is included under license certain exceptions consumption, since the OFAC also published amendments to Regulation Cuban Assets (CACR) allowing the export and re-authorized to export items, a new way of trade with the island opens.

Specifically, the regulation that allows Apple to export product to Cuba is referenced in the “Communication Devices for Consumers Act.”

Apple thus becomes one of the first technology companies willing to implement the new possibilities of trade with Cuba.

Netflix had also announced it would begin to operate in Cuba, despite the difficulties of the residents to access the Internet.

Alabama Made $53 Million On Football

This is not really a news story so much as it is a note on how much money college athletes make for their schools. The students at Alabama made $53 million for the football program, and that money goes to nowhere. It gets divided up among many people, and those people are not the athletes. We need to start paying these kids because there is obviously plenty of money to go around.

There are many people, like Flavio Maluf, who believe that players should not get paid because many of these schools will not make this much money. However, there is enough money coming from the conferences to pay these kids, and the schools that make all this extra money can pay into a system like they do in baseball that is going to help the smaller programs stated facebook.com.

There is a way to get this done, but it is hard to imagine anyone agreeing with simple logic. There is plenty of money coming in for college basketball and football. These kids have full time jobs as athletes, and they need to get paid because we already know many of them do not get educated. Just look at UNC Chapel Hill for the proof.

How Bad Is Phoenix?

Say what you will about Donald Sterling, but he just never made the right moves to form a contender in LA. Robert Sarver is doing the same thing in Phoenix, and he is making the team a place no one wants to go. Goran Dargic could be a superstar in Phoenix, and he could drag them along with some help for years to come. However, he does not want to be there.

We have heard rumblings of Sarver yelling racial epithets at players from his courtside seats, and now his best player wants to get out as soon as possible. Steve Kerr did not last long as a GM even though he is now killing it in Oakland. Fans like Flavio Pentagna Guimaraes BMG wonder: How is it possible for the Suns to be so bad when they have such resources?

The owner is the problem. He has made the team a place that no one wants to go. Yes, Dragic will make more money going somewhere else, but there is no pull at all for him to stay. That tells me that the Suns have a major front office problem, and problems like that make teams impossible to improve, hard to build and even harder to sustain.
