40 Under 40: Latinos In Sports
Huffington Post - 4 months
The 2016 sports season was filled with countless story lines ranging from redemptions, to walk off retirements and dramatic Olympic performances. And in the center of these were many influential Latinos. However, even though Latinos have made great strides in sports, the community still faces multiple barriers to entry. This can be seen in becoming a professional, and Olympic athlete, as well as in the disproportionate amount of diversity in management, journalism and ownership positions vis-a-vis to the constantly evolving percentage of players of color in the NFL, NBA, and MLB to name a few. Yet despite these obstacles various role models have cracked into this sector and have paved the way for many. Armando Salguero (Miami Herald) and Dan Le Batard (ESPN), Mauricio Sulaiman (WBC), Jose de Jesus Ortiz (St. Louis Dispatch), Tony Gonzalez (CBS), Jesse Sanchez (MLB), Angel Rodríguez (LA Times), Arturo "Artie"Moreno (Owner of LA Angels), Linda Alvarado (Owner of Colorado Rocki ...

Organized religion (The Crusades), street gangs, fraternity hazing rituals, and aggressive jocks who push weaker kids into their school lockers may be responsible for a horrendous amount of violence and bullying. But when one examines the root causes of their behavior, certain personality traits are easily identified. A narcissistic personality disorder. Fear of rejection. An alpha male's need to dominate perceived competitors and/or have the last word in any argument. Fear of sexual inadequacy. Refusing to take responsibility for the consequences of one's actions. Parents who always made excuses for their child's bad behavior. A gross assumption of privilege due to one's race, religion, ethnicity, sexuality, or family wealth. All one has to do is look at certain despicable humans who were presumably normal at birth but subsequently morphed into maladjusted monsters. Jeffrey Dahmer grew up to be a sex offender, serial killer, necrophiliac, and c ...

Super Bowl's Halftime Entertainment Committee on <em>Mars</em>
Huffington Post Sports - about 3 years
Think about the weirdest combinations you can think of: A peanut butter and mustard sandwich, tequila and peppermint schnapps, Oprah and Stedman. As crazy as these may be, they can't hold a candle to the decision to combine Bruno Mars and the Red Hot Chili Peppers as the halftime entertainment during Super Bowl XLVlll. Granted, 99 times out of 100 the halftime show is usually one big "Up with People" clusterf#ck, anyway. Turning even the most respected artists into lip-syncing, overly-choreographed cartoons of themselves. It is everything true "artists" rail against their entire careers- until they, themselves, get the call asking them to be part of it and if they'd prefer to be paid in cash or bitcoins? Personally, I could care less who performs during the half-time show, as I'm usually in the bathroom flushing my betting pool tickets down the toilet, anyway. And, aside from the feeling that Bruno Mars reminds me of a low-calorie Lenny kravitz (and that he has to be the bastard ...

Thousands of stolen roses go to waste
San Francisco Chronicle - about 4 years
A Watsonville man stole $7,000 worth of roses from a warehouse but ended up dumping them by the side of the road a few days later when they dried up, authorities said. Saul Rodriguez, 35, broke into the Monterey Bay Bouquet warehouse on the 400 block of San Andreas Road in Watsonville either late Jan. 31 or early Feb. 1 and drove away with $7,000 of wholesale long-stem roses, said April Skalland, a spokeswoman for the Santa Cruz sheriff’s office. The roses would have retailed for closer to $18,000, but any profits Rodriguez might have made during the Valentine’s Day rush wilted along with the flowers a few days after [...]

Jamie Masada: Keep Giving: The Thanks Will Take Care of Itself
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Black Friday is taking over the Thanksgiving spirit and soon we will get a 15 minute break for turkey and stuffing while we spend the rest of the time shopping. It hasn't taken long. The big corporations have been moving in for over a century. First, there was the sale items; soon, a stampede mentality -- capable of actually killing people -- has developed into something called "Black Friday." Perhaps that refers to the black eyes and bruises people are getting from shoving and pushing in the crowds. This beautiful day -- Thanksgiving -- that I didn't even know about when I came here as a teen was so great! One just shared a meal with others! A turkey with stuffing and sweet potatoes and cranberries! And pumpkin pie and apple pie! That's America I said to myself. This was a day that was about the gathering of family -- whatever a family was -- and celebrating that togetherness with a meal of thanks. It was a day to count our blessings and be thankful. What a great idea! ...

Joah Spearman: X Games Style: All Grown Up & Going Global
Huffington Post - over 4 years
In case you missed this year's Summer X Games in Los Angeles, here's the short rundown: snowboard-skate star Shaun White didn't compete, moto-turned-rallycar favorite Travis Pastrana didn't win, Jamie Bestwick six-peated with gold in BMX vert, Paul Rodriguez won his fourth gold medal in skate street and Ronnie Renner set a record with a 47-foot jump to take home the top prize in the Sony Moto Step Up competition. Ryan Sheckler kick-flips his way to a silver medal in the skate street competition. All photos courtesy of Niraj Rai But chances are, this information is way over your head unless you're a super fan. And that's OK because the real story of Summer X this year wasn't about the athletes, competitions or tricks. The headline of this year's Games was the fact that this year -- X Games' 18th -- marked the end of the adolescent phase for ESPN's action sports juggernaut. X Games is no longer a teenage-only, black T-shirt-wearing, logo-all-over-my-clothes event for bo ...

Steve Young: Hollywood Exclaims: Stop Mistreating Deceptive Politicians! (VIDEO)
Huffington Post - over 4 years
The Supreme Court has already made it clear that corporations are people. It's time to acknowledge that political dishonesty has the same legitimacy as political truth. What happened to freedom of speech?! America used to be the country where a man (and since 1920, a woman) could speak freely without some holier-than-thou, sanctimonious, do-gooder, blathering on about how politicians had to be honest with the public. I'm guessing that these same people would have wanted President Roosevelt telling Adolf what time we were hitting Normandy; or would have had Yogi Berra tell Brooklyn Dodger hitters what pitches perfect-game Don Larson was going to throw. Whether ruining America's war effort or America's pastime, these Democracy-interrupters have been hell-bent in getting in the way of... America. Today, it's worse than ever. These self-righteous, anti-patriots now want the public to rise up against good-old, American spinmanship. Flackcheck.org, an offshoot website ...

Stamp Out Hunger Across America
KDRV - almost 5 years
By Kaylin Krashesky     MEDFORD, Ore. -- Letter carries are hoping that warm weather this weekend helps people warm up to the idea of donating to the local community. Most people are receiving bright yellow bags in mailboxes this week; those bags can be filled with non-perishable food items to be collected by local letter carriers. The Annual Stamp Out Hunger Across America Campaign is the largest single day food drive in the U.S. and helps bring in thousands of pounds of food here in Southern Oregon. Last year, letter carriers collected almost 80,000 pounds of food for access in Medford. "If the community could just dig a little deep and grab one or two cans off their shelf and a box of crackers or anything of that sort it goes a long way," says letter carrier Paul Rodriguez. Letter carriers will pick up yellow bags with donated items Saturday, May 12th.

Tanya Young Williams: Red Carpet Treatment for Martin Family As Celebrities, Activists and Supporters Pack Prestigious L.A. Church
Huffington Post - almost 5 years
Los Angeles plays host to entertainment's biggest award shows; President Obama stops by the city to raise millions of dollars at celebrity homes; the rich, the famous and the want-to-be famous understand that L.A. is the place to be if you want to be seen. Therefore, it makes perfect sense that the handlers of the biggest story to capture the country's attention in 2012 would choose Los Angeles as the backdrop for their big announcement. The Trayvon Martin family formally launched the Justice for Trayvon Martin Foundation on the stage of one of the nation's most prestigious churches -- The West Angeles Church of God in Christ. The night also marked the two month anniversary of the tragic killing of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin's death, at the hands of 28-year-old, self-appointed, community watchman George Zimmerman. For the first time, the advisors of Tracy Martin and Sabrina Fulton, the parents of Trayvon Martin, outlined the purpose for the newly established foundation ...
