Sinatra at 100: Excuse Me, He Never Disappeared
Huffington Post - about 1 year
On Dec. 4, 1987, a Frank Sinatra concert at New Jersey's Brendan Byrne Arena was cancelled. That was bad. This was worse. The 8 p.m. show was not called off until 7:50 p.m., by which time most of the 19,000 ticket holders were standing outside in a cold rain, waiting for the doors to open. Instead they got a muffled cancellation announcement over a tinny loudspeaker. It was not the "One more for the road" they had come to hear. Unhappiest sellout Sinatra crowd ever. Yet in an odd way, the story of The Show That Didn't Go On provides some insight into why Frank Sinatra is that rare, almost singular artist whose life and music we are still widely commemorating on the 100th anniversary of his birth. Sinatra, who was born Dec. 12, 1915, isn't among the celebrants. He died May 14, 1998. But he didn't take it with him. He left most of it for us, and we're still running with it. His 100th birth anniversary sparked two major TV network salutes: CBS last weekend, fe ...

Skill-vs.-Luck Investing Has Risky Effects
The Street - about 3 years
NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- TheStreet.com alum Barry Ritholtz recently shared a post from investment manager Bob Seawright that explored the difference between skill and luck when to comes to investing. Seawright invoked something called the Wyatt Earp effect where Earp famously survived countless gunfights and while history looks back at Earp as having been very skilled, luck also had to play a very large role. Seawright continues that Bill Miller's streak of beating the S&P 500 for 15 years in a row as he managed the Legg Mason Value Trust was by Miller's own account "an accident of the calendar." Understanding the difference between skill and luck is crucial. When a long, lucky streak is confused with skill it can lead to overconfidence which can then lead to increased risk taking. In managing the Legg Mason Value Trust Miller took big risks despite the above quote attributed to him by Seawright. He had very large positions financial stocks including Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac ...

Everything You Need To Know About The 2013 World Series From A(dam Wainwright) To Z(Z Top)
Huffington Post Sports - over 3 years
Adam Wainwright. The starter in Game 1 for the St. Louis Cardinals, Wainwright has continued his postseason dominance into 2013. Having famously sealed the Cardinals trip to the 2006 World Series with a knee-buckling curveball to Carlos Beltran, then with the New York Mets, Waino has produced sterling career postseason numbers: The 32-year-old righty has a 4-1 record and 4 saves to go with a 2.10 ERA in the postseason. Boston Strong: The outfield at Fenway Park has been adorned with the "B Strong" logo throughout the postseason, a symbol of Boston's unity and resilience following the bombings at the Boston Marathon. The bombing occurred just a short walk from Fenway Park and the team has honored first responders and victims throughout the season and during the playoffs. Carlos Beltran. At age 36, Beltran is making his first appearance in the World Series.

Sean Martinfield: Nathan Gunn Is 'Yeshua' in San Francisco Opera's The Gospel of Mary Magdalene
Huffington Post - over 3 years
The first question posed in Philosophy 101, a course frequently described as an introduction to the art of critical thinking, is some variation on, "How do you know what you know?" About -- whatever. A challenging question when applied to the subject of Jesus and Mary Magdalene. Depending on the teacher, Part B of that query might be, "And who told you so?" The world premiere of The Gospel of Mary Magdalene is now at San Francisco Opera through July 7. Popular baritone Nathan Gunn portrays Jesus, referred to here as Yeshua. No matter the format or venue, even for the most equipped candidate, acting-out the Son of Man is not an opportunity that comes around very often. Nathan has sung the role in Bach's oratorios, The Passion of St. Matthew and The Passion of St. John. But the plot has thickened in this unorthodox opera by Mark Adamo and the familiar characters are pushed through an altered lens. In this story, Yeshua's illegitimacy is common knowledge. Life has been about s ...

'The Milk Truck' Saves Breastfeeding Moms From Harassment
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Public breastfeeding is legal in most states, but mothers who try to do it are sometimes made to feel like boobs. Artist and mom Jill Miller wants to change that with The Milk Truck, a modified pink, red, and blue ice cream truck with a giant breast on top that serves as a mobile safe place for women who want to feed their children without dealing with society's sneers and jeers. Miller, an artist and faculty member in the School of Art at Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, created The Milk Truck last year as a way to help hungry babies eat by providing a supportive environment for women to nurse their babies. "I wouldn't say every woman in Pittsburgh has been asked to cover up — that would be totally overblowing it," Miller told NBC News."But there were these stories I would hear that seemed almost like urban legends." Those stories include that of Dawn Holland, a Georgia mother who had an incident at her local Applebee's in September. The manager insisted ...

Howard Fineman: Rep. Paul Ryan VP Choice Draws Criticism From Some Conservatives
Huffington Post - over 4 years
Despite general cheer among conservatives, some in that camp are apoplectic at Mitt Romney's choice of Rep. Paul Ryan as his vice presidential running mate, though they are reluctant to say so publicly. Here -- anonymously, by his request -- is a critique of the choice by one of the country's most prominent and influential conservatives, who sent this analysis to close friends: Here are some problems I see: SAMENESS: It is amazing but true -- likeability and superficial impressions determine most elections. We know already Mitt is losing on this factor to Obama. Already the Obama camp has been successfully caricaturing Mitt as a rich elitist, out of touch with ordinary Americans. While Ryan, at first blush, comes across attractive and polished with a great personal story, his overall image seems to reinforce the Mitt stereotype. Both Mitt and Ryan come across as too polished and frankly somewhat detached. I heard a commentator on Fox today say that Mitt tapped Paul beca ...

  The recent heat wave hasn't made things easy on the crew setting up for this weekend's Connecticut Irish Festival. The annual event, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary this year, will take place this Saturday and Sunday at the North Haven Fairgrounds. "It takes a lot of man hours, a lot of work, just to get these stages set up," Jim Martens, the festival committee chairman, told Patch late Thursday afternoon at the fairgrounds. 'Perfect' Weekend for a Festival All week long volunteers have toiled away under the heavy blanket of high heat and humidity to make sure everything is just right before the gates open on Saturday. "At this point, we're just about set up," Martens said.

Battle of the Fort Lee Bands, from Swing to Metal
Fortlee Patch - almost 5 years
The Riviera Nightclub atop the Palisades--both the original in the old Villa Richard Restaurant in the Coytesville section of the Palisades from 1931 to 1936 when it burned down, and the one built and opened in 1937 by Ben Marden closer to the George Washington Bridge atop the cliffs--was one of the major hotspots in the U.S. during the Swing and Big Band era.  From 1931 through the beginning of World War II Ben Marden owned and operated the club with a little help from his friends, if you know what I mean. The nightclub closed early into the war and reopened in 1946 under the ownership of Bill Miller. Both Marden and Miller brought some of the greatest Big Bands in America to Fort Lee.  Tommy and Jimmy Dorsey, who fronted their own bands, started out and ended together in the Dorsey Brothers Orchestra, one of the top bands of the Big Band era. They opened at Fort Lee’s Riviera in September of 1934, and among those in the audience were the great American crooner Bing ...
