  1. Reading an article on this and it sounds like Bertuzzi-Moore 2.0. Russian guy's teammate got stretchered off in a previous preseason game between the two teams after being hit from behind into the boards, so it seems like he was out looking for revenge. http://www.cbssports.com/nhl/news/watch-khl-player-goes-on-stunning-one-man-rampage-tries-to-fight-entire-team/ https://youtu.be/IHCOaz05pxY
  2. What's the point of the video other than to tell us what we already know. People are $&!#ty, people were $&!#ty since the dawn of time and will continue to be until the end. As an adult you should have the faculties to deal with words. Should people say these hateful things? No, I don't think anyone would agree that people should say this stuff. But, it's still inevitable. You can't control what every individual person does at any given time no matter how much you campaign against it; people still smoke, they still drink and drive, there are still racists, sexists and homophobes - that will never change. The only thing you can do is control your response to it and frankly, all this video will do is reinforce the trolling. This is what those people thrive on, they want to get under your skin and make you angry. But no, you're right let's continue to feed the trolls and show them how much they matter by blubbering on the internet about how they hurt us. Tyler, the Creator had it absolutely right, "just walk away".
  3. Ahh grow up. There are a multitude of outs available to anyone who wants them. The block function takes literally two seconds to hit, if that doesn't satisfy your bloodlust report them. If it is "too much to handle" make your accounts private. For christ's sake I thought we were supposed to grow out of tattletaling by the age of five. We got grown adults going to media outlets with the equivalent of "Mommy, mommy, Jimmy called me a doodoohead!". Really though, why does anyone lend any weight to what some anonymous asshole you've never met and will never meet thinks of you or threatens to do to you. Are people really this weak nowadays? Social media has rotted people's brain to the point where they need "likes" or "favourites" to feel good about themselves and that's why people give a $&!# about what the knob in Kalamazoo thinks of them.
  4. If he could prove he was on the plane could he take her to court for slander?
  5. I don't think we should have to tell you that an earnings gap is not the same as a wage gap. Men tend to earn more because they work more hours, are more likely to take overtime, etc. due to women tending to be required to do more in the home, ie. looking after the kids. Again, a wage gap differs from an earning gap. The numbers you are quoting comes from the average EARNINGS of the sexes. In the States this represents women earning 77% what men earn. There are many reasons for why this occurs, a lot of it has to do with CHOICES. The myth that women are getting paid less for the same work is ludicrous. Women earn less because they CHOOSE lower paying careers, men go into STEM, women go into the social sciences; although, if the demographics of my classes are any indicator, this is changing and the gap will likely continue to decrease. Plus efforts to get young women into the sciences have been taken through "girl-only science days" sponsored by local schools and libraries in the summer. Again, men to work longer hours and overtime and are traditionally expected to do less in the homestead (as these traditions continue to crumble so likely would the wage gap). Another is seen in women's general unwillingness to negotiate hard, men tend to negotiate better wages for themselves than do women. A real issue for women in the workplace likely comes from the "glass ceiling" and their perceived competence in the workplace, but again, as attitudes change this should disappear. Getting back to the topic at hand this charity is not "very worrying" as there is a women-only counterpart to this organization, 100womenwhogiveadamn.ca, which as the lack of an article written indicates, receives no grief for their efforts of charity. It's more "worrying" that this professor seems to think that this organization is insidiously forcing their values upon the community. To quote her "It sends an important message about the vision they have of the future of this community." Excuse me, but what the &^@# is that supposed to mean, does she think they dream of a male-only paradise of sorts? And conversely, does the women-only counterpart not have the same issue than in her eyes?
  6. What irks me the most is that we haven't heard from anyone else in that room that day. There has to be at least 20 witnesses there that could give a view into what happened, but instead we're left with a he said, they said situation where both parties have everything to gain by lying through their teeth. It's been a week, they can't find anybody?
  7. This whole Richards' situation stinks to high heaven. If they bought him out I calculate the cap hit at: 1.217M this year 1.717M year 2 2.717M year 3 4.217M year 4 & 5 1.466M years 6-10 Yahoo is reporting that the Kings would be on the hook for Richards' cap recapture at 1.32M for the next five years. So termination would hurt them by about 100K this year and significantly help them the other 9 years. Hopefully Richards and the PA take the Kings to task.
  8. The 65th ranked euro skater (falling from 25 at mid-year). Guess they didn't think he would be available in the 5th and liked him enough to reach. Hopefully he's more Zdeno Chara than Boris Valabik. Hell, I'll be happy if he turns into a Hal Gill type.
  9. I don't know anything about his then girlfriend (the one in the recording, apparently V. Stiviano) as TMZ describes http://www.tmz.com/2014/04/26/donald-sterling-girlfriend-v-stiviano-photos/. Sterling's wife of 50 years has called her a gold digger and has sued her alleging she embezzled 1.8M from the Sterlings and alleging she would "get even" for the lawsuit. http://www.latimes.com/local/lanow/la-me-ln-sterlings-wife-describes-girlfriend-as-gold-digger-in-lawsuit-20140426,0,4883913.story#axzz303zH9xK4 Apparently her Instagram was private before this situation and is now public gaining her 10K new followers. http://www.examiner.com/article/v-stiviano-instagram-page-goes-public-gains-nearly-10k-followers-hours As another poster said Sterling has had an issue with Hispanics and African-Americans as accounted on Wikipedia. A lawsuit alleges that Sterling refused to rent to non-Koreans in Koreatown and to African Americans in Beverly Hills. Sterling once said he did not like to rent to "Hispanics" because, "Hispanics smoke, drink and just hang around the building." Sterling also allegedly said, "Black tenants smell and attract vermin." http://articles.latimes.com/2009/feb/13/sports/sp-plaschke-clippers13 "In November 2009, Sterling agreed to pay $2.73 million to settle allegations by the Justice Department that he refused to rent apartments to Hispanics and blacks and to families with children. In March 2011, Sterling won a lawsuit filed by Elgin Baylor, the team’s former general manager, when a jury rejected his claim of wrongful termination and age discrimination." http://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs/early-lead/wp/2014/04/26/clippers-owner-donald-sterling-tells-girlfriend-not-to-bring-black-people-to-games-disses-magic-johnson/ According to testimony given by property manager Summer Davenport: "Cultivating his image, Davenport said, meant no Blacks, no Mexican-Americans, no children (whom Sterling called "brats") and no government-housing-subsidy recipients as tenants. So according to the testimony of tenants, Sterling employees made life difficult for residents in some of his new buildings. They refused rent checks, then accused renters of nonpayment. They refused to do repairs for black tenants and harassed them with surprise inspections, threatening residents with eviction for alleged violations of building rules." http://www.huffingtonpost.com/etan-thomas/donald-sterling-has-been_b_5219475.html Maybe I'm naive I don't know, but I think this could be construed a few ways. 1. Sterling is a racist. 2. Stiviano is a gold digger who saw the gravy train leaving the station and hoped for one last large cash grab selling the tape and one last opportunity to gain notoriety and possibly revenge for him dumping her. 3. Both 1. and 2. are in play. What I believe to be true is that Sterling is a bigot. Yet, I truly believe he does not harbour hate toward any persons of other races (as he states multiple times in the recording), he is just ignorant. He has old views of minorities, ones that he likely grew up with. The civil rights movement and the fight to end segregation happened while he was in his 20s. He grew up in a culture where you did not associate with people of other races and was probably taught that black people hated white people. The whole apartment issue comes across as him believing Hispanics, African-Americans and families were problem tenants based on ignorant beliefs. It seems to be that he believes Hispanics and African-Americans to be low class or ill-mannered. He had no issues renting to persons of a Korean background for whatever reason (maybe he stereotyped them as upstanding citizens). This whole conversation seems off, as if there is an unspoken underlying issue. Again, maybe Stiviano saw the writing on the wall that the relationship was ending and tried to get him to say something racist in order to sell a story. That's not to say Sterling is completely off the hook. He has done some allegedly despicable things himself. Both parties involved seem like despicable human beings. Finally, we should all know not to trust TMZ. they threw Colin Kaepernick's reputation (and contract negotiations) under the bus insinuating he was a rapist when no charges we're laid against him based on a flimsy story. They don't have a lick of integrity as far as I'm concerned.
  10. 5K is weak. A paltry 0.09% of his salary for his second offense in a month? That's like fining the average joe $25, you'd get a larger fine for littering.
  11. I'm sure he's quaking in his boots . The Yahoo comments section is not exactly a Mensa meeting. I'm pretty sure half of them haven't graduated from secondary school.
  12. You can believe Sandy Hook was a hoax all you want, it still doesn't change the fact that kids are still dying in school shootings in the States. Sandy Hook changed nothing. As long as they believe that the answer to gun violence is leaving guns easily available to the mentally unstable (in the name of not making it harder for law-abiding citizens to get them) it will continue to occur.
  13. He's obviously lying. His nose coupled with his visor makes that physically impossible.
  14. http://www.bloodyelbow.com/2013/11/17/5113402/ufc-167-results-george-st-pierre-vs-johny-hendricks-scorecard-judges Picture of the official scorecard. So I was slightly wrong. All 3 judges had round 2 and 4 going to Hendricks and round 3 and 5 to GSP. Turns out round 1 was the difference maker. GSP won round 1 with 2 of the judges and Hendricks won round 1 on 1.
  15. Hmm thought Hendricks won this on split prob 3-2, 3-2, 2-3. Definitely thought Hendricks won 1 and 4 and GSP won 3 and 5. Round 2 was up in the air in this fight for me and really that round came down to how you score fights. Hendricks landed harder punches but GSP did land more if I remember correctly. Hendricks corner did him a disservice by telling him he had it after round 4 that screwed him and his effort was poor in round 5.
