New York Jets head coach Rex Ryan is referring, in this case, to former Texas Tech head coach Mike Leach’s latest literary undertaking, “Sports for Dorks: College Football” (ISBN 978-0615484976), in which Leach once again takes aim at college football’s conventional wisdom.
Leach, along with co-editor Ferhat Guven, came up with the idea of “Sports for Dorks” during a “typical” telephone call in which they discussed Henry VIII, US fiscal policy, Sub Saharan Africa real estate, and of course college football.

CARNAGE – In Select Theaters December 16th, 2011
Police have stated that they suspect foul play in the disappearance of Sky Metalwala, a two year old boy, from Washington. The child was last seen by his mother inside of a parked car. He was reported missing on Sunday morning by his mother, Julia Biryukova, when he found him missing.
Biryukova told the police that she left the child buckled into the car seat and walked to a gas station when she ran out of gas. The gas station was about a mile away. When she returned, the child was gone, but the police immediately had questions about her story. The car had no signs of forced entry. Investigators have since collected evidence from the surrounding trash bins, located at the mother’s apartment building.
The purpose of film is to tell a story and on the independent level, it is where you find the desperate storyteller attempting to get his tale out. The transition from paper to film can be a rocky one, but when the story is good, everything else is secondary. I get the opportunity to view a lot of independent film and the majority tends to be very bad, because anyone can make a film with the technology available, but not everyone is a storyteller. The storytellers stand out and a film that I came across called “BROTHERS IN COMMUNION” is just one of those movies that were created by people with heart and a tale to tell.
The film was written and directed by Rich Dumont and the story revolves around Voodoo (Chris Lobdell), a young man that has a serious drug problem and cannot find a way to defeat it. In actuality, he doesn’t want to defeat it.

Popular rapper, Heavy D, was rushed to the hospital in Los Angeles today and would later die. The cause of death is unknown at this time. TMZ reported that Heavy D had breathing issues prior to being rushed to the ER, but everything is still sketchy at this time.
Heavy D was a big star in the 1990s, the lead singer in “Heavy D & the Boyz” and may be best known for his title tune for the TV show, “In Living Color.” Heavy D has been in several movies, including the new Eddie Murphy movie: “TOWER HEIST.”
On March 8th, 1971, the world froze. Everyone was tuned in for the Fight of the Century, between the two men that had claim to the heavyweight title. In one corner, you had the man that refused Vietnam and was wrongfully stripped of the title, Muhammad Ali, facing the man that claimed the title, Joe Frazier. Both men were undefeated and both men had legions of fans, and it didn’t take long for the prefight happenings to get ugly and for a lifelong feud to be born.
Frazier dealt with the ridicule from the media and public, considered the “white man’s champion,” with Ali manipulating the people onto his side. He was considered the man coming back for what was rightfully his and despite the fact that Frazier was responsible for his return, he treated Smokin’ Joe quite poorly.

As Tebon points out, the first step for anyone is to find your target market and be creative.

He quickly realized there was a niche out there that offered big opportunities for a young entrepreneur.
Good morning NewzBreaker readers and welcome to my new home. I enjoyed writing at Ringside Report, but had to duck and weave to get around those boxers and at my age, that can be tough. NB as those hipsters “Bad” Brad and Geno call it, is the right format for me to share my stories of days gone by in the entertainment world.
Last week crooner and all around nice guy Andy Williams announced he was battling Bladder Cancer which at 83 years old, is no easy feat. Years back, I had my own fight with Cancer and it was a tough uphill battle that gladly I can report, I beat. So I know exactly what Andy is going up against and wish him nothing, but a first round TKO a term I picked up over at RSR against that opponent – Cancer!
Mr. Asim Khan had a successful career in New York and London as an investment banker and hedge fund manager. He was blown out during the global financial crisis but rather than soldiering on in finance until things got better, Mr. Khan threw caution to the wind and resettled in Saint-Tropez. At the time, he did not speak French or know anyone in Saint-Tropez and had no plan other than to live by the teachings of a yogi he met in India who instructed him to follow his heart and intuition.
Mr. Khan quickly fell in with the crowd of luminaries who regularly visit Saint-Tropez and call it their home from Easter until the end of September. The list includes European aristocracy, Russian oligarchs, Arab Spring revolutionaries, artists and the lively gay community that is truly the soul of Saint-Tropez.
