With an impressive back nine at Colonial on Sunday, Spieth won at home in Texas for the first time on the PGA Tour in the Dean & Deluca Invitational. Jordan Spieth celebrates his birdie on the 16th green during the final round of the Dean & DeLuca Invitational at Colonial on Sunday in Fort Worth, Texas. He had three consecutive birdies after making the turn, and three more in a row to finish his final round at 5-under 65, including a chip-in birdie from behind the 17th green after a fortunate bounce off a marshal. World No 2 Spieth punctuated his eighth career victory with a 34-foot birdie putt when he needed only a bogey to take first place.
Last month at Augusta, Spieth blew a five-stroke lead on the back nine when trying to win the Masters for the second year in a row. He is the reigning US Open champion, and will be trying to defend that title at Oakmont in three weeks.
Spieth started Sunday at Hogan's Alley with nine consecutive pars, including a 32-footer on the par-3 eighth after hitting his first shot into heavy rough.
There was also the guy in the gallery at No 10 that yelled out "Remember the Masters, Jordan!" and other similar comments. While Spieth wasn't sure if they were positive or negative reminders, they certainly provided some motivation. He yanked his ball out of the bunker over the green before a chip to inside three feet for a bogey. On 14, after hitting his drive into a fairway bunker and shouting after his approach short of the green, he saved par with a 14-footer that rolled just to the right edge before dropping into the cup. Spieth signed a glove "Thanks!" to the marshal, but his approach from 173 yards sailed over the green before he chipped in after relief because it landed against a temporary grandstand. Nearly two months before his 23rd birthday, Spieth broke a tie with Tiger Woods for wins at age 22 or younger.
With the first-prize check of $1.2 million and a plaid jacket to go with the green one from the Masters, Spieth has earned more than $24 million on the PGA Tour.
When the final group was introduced before teeing off at No 1, the applause and cheers for Palmer were as loud as those for Spieth. Thailand's Ariya Jutanugarn won her third consecutive LPGA title on Sunday, firing a final round 5-under par 67 to win the inaugural Volvik Championship by five strokes over American Christina Kim. Ariya became the first player to capture her first three LPGA crowns in consecutive fashion, and the 20-year-old from Bangkok moved within two of the tour record of five straight wins shared by Sweden's Annika Sorenstam and American Nancy Lopez.
Ariya became the first Thai player to win an LPGA title by taking the Yokohama Tire Classic in Alabama earlier this month and added the Kingsmill Championship two weeks ago. Ariya is the first LPGA player to win three events in a row since South Korea's Park In-bee in 2013. She will skip next week's Shoprite LPGA Classic to focus on the Women's PGA Championship at Sammamish, Washington, from June 9-12. Kim was second at 278 after a closing 71 with Canada's Brooke Henderson and American Jessica Korda, the 23-year-old daughter of former ATP standout Petr Korda, sharing third place at 279. Only three men have ever won both the Indianapolis 500 and the Monaco Grand Prix, and Alexander Rossi is halfway to becoming the fourth after the rookie scored an unlikely win at The Brickyard on Sunday. Better known in Formula One circles than the IndyCar circuit before Sunday, Rossi will now be forever remembered as the winner of the 100th running of the Indianapolis 500, his likeness engraved onto the Borg Warner Trophy alongside a host of motor racing greats like Jim Clark, Graham Hill, Mario Andretti, Emerson Fittipaldi and AJ Foyt.
Alexander Rossi dunks himself with milk after winning Sunday's 100th running of the Indianapolis 500 at Indianapolis Motor Speedway in Indiana. Many who do not know Rossi soon will, with the 24-year-old American set to be jetted around the US on a whirlwind media junket that will include dozens of appearances on television talk shows. While nearly every driver in the 33-car field had grown up dreaming of winning the 'Greatest Spectacle in Racing', Rossi grew up in California dreaming of racing Formula One - and at 16 he left home for Europe to pursue that ambition. Last year, Rossi realized his lifelong dream when he earned a ride with Manor and started five Grand Prix races. But this season the reality of Formula One hit home when he found himself on the outside looking in after Indonesian Rio Haryanto's backers offered the struggling team more money. Running out of time and options, Rossi signed on with one of IndyCar's top teams, Andretti Autosport, although he remains a reserve driver for Manor. Only Montoya, Clark and Hill won both Indy and Monaco, which are traditionally run on the same day and with his F1 connections and desires, Rossi could yet find himself on the Monte Carlo starting grid. A winning IndyCar driver and son of former Formula One world champion Mario, Michael made an ill-fated move to the glamor circuit in 1993, joining McLaren as Ayrton Senna's teammate - but lasted just one season. Andretti earned a single podium finish with a third place finish at Monza before returning home.
Perennial Grand Slam title contenders Stan Wawrinka and Andy Murray were joined in the French Open quarter-finals by two unfamiliar faces on Sunday as the Parisian clay continued to turn up unexpected plot lines. It was no surprise to see Swiss titleholder Wawrinka beat Viktor Troicki, although it took a while for the third seed to subdue the Serb 7-6 (5), 6-7 (7), 6-3, 6-2.
Murray's 7-6 (9), 6-4, 6-3 defeat of John Isner was entirely predictable, even if the second seed had to save three set points in the opener before extending his career record over the towering American to 6-0 in clinical fashion. Shelby Rogers of the US celebrates beating Irina Begu of Romania in the fourth round of the French Open in Paris on Sunday. Three-time semifinalist Murray will play Richard Gasquet, the sole surviving French singles player, who had the crowd in raptures on Court Philippe Chatrier with a scintillating 6-4, 6-2, 4-6, 6-2 win over Japanese fifth seed Kei Nishikori.
Ninth-seeded Gasquet, 29, collapsed joyously on his back after sealing victory and a long-overdue place in the last eight of his home Grand Slam for the first time in 13 attempts. Who would have thought a left-hander named Albert Ramos-Vinolas, rather than nine-time French Open champion Rafael Nadal, would be leading the Spanish men's challenge?
But that is the reality after Nadal pulled out with a damaged left wrist on Friday and Ramos-Vinolas, a first-round loser for the last four years, crushed eighth-seeded Canadian Milos Raonic 6-2, 6-4, 6-4 on a damp, murky day in the capital. American Shelby Rogers, ranked so low that she only just scraped in as a direct entry, backed up her stunning win over two-time Wimbledon champion Petra Kvitova to beat Romania's 25th seed Irina Begu 6-3, 6-4, bursting into tears at the end. Whether or not she will be exercising her tear ducts on Tuesday depends how she performs against fourth seed Garbine Muguruza, who maintained her impressive form with a 6-3, 6-4 victory over 2009 champion Svetlana Kuznetsova.
Muguruza, 22, lost her opening set but has been faultless since to reach a third consecutive French Open quarterfinal to stay on course to become the first Spanish woman to lift the trophy since Arantxa Sanchez Vicario in 1998.
Wawrinka and Murray are also looking ominously in the groove as they move towards a likely semifinal showdown. Wawrinka, taken to five sets in the first round, is on an eight-match winning streak on clay after claiming the Geneva title, while Murray made it nine in a row against Isner, having won the title in Rome.
The best might be yet to come if two of the game's most popular stars end up facing each other. The International Sports Services Trade Conference of the 4th Beijing International Fair for Trade in Service was held on Sunday at the National Convention Center. As Beijing will host the 2022 Winter Olympics, the conference focused on promotion of the Winter Olympics and development of the sports industry. Martina Hingis and Sania Mirza lost their cool as their hopes of holding all four Grand Slam doubles titles were dashed with a 6-3, 6-2 loss to Czech duo Barbora Krejcikova and Katerina Siniakova in the third round of the French Open on Sunday.
The Indo-Swiss team dubbed "Santina" hoped to win four majors in a row after following up last year's Wimbledon and US Open triumphs with a victory at January's Australian Open.
But the top seeds were less than sharp on a gloomy day at Roland Garros and their bid to complete the 'Santina Slam' ended after the Czechs blasted a service return winner to break Hingis in the final game. Chelsea captain John Terry believes his former manager Jose Mourinho will lead Manchester United back to the top. Mourinho was appointed United manager earlier this week after Louis van Gaal was fired two days after leading the Red Devils to an FA Cup victory.
Starlin Castro's two-run homer off Jake Odorizzi in the seventh inning was enough to lift the Yankees a 2-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays on Sunday in Tampa, Florida. According to Baseball Reference data going back to 1913, the Yankees' only other one-hit win was when Charlie Mullen had an RBI single to beat Cleveland in six innings of a doubleheader nightcap on July 10, 1914. David Fizdale, an assistant coach for the NBA's Miami Heat for the past eight seasons, was named on Sunday as the new coach of the Memphis Grizzlies. It will be the first head coaching post for Fizdale, who replaces the fired Dave Joerger, now coach of the Sacramento Kings. Fizdale, 41, has also been an assistant coach for the Golden State Warriors and Atlanta Hawks.
Zinedine Zidane hailed Real Madrid as the "club of my life" after a dramatic Champions League penalty shootout victory over Atletico Madrid on Saturday that left Atletico coach Diego Simeone pondering his future. Former France and Real Madrid star Zidane scored the winning goal when Real beat Bayer Leverkusen 2-1 to lift the title in Glasgow in 2002. Real Madrid players pose with the trophy after winning a shootout in Saturday's UEFA Champions League final against Atletico Madrid in Milan, Italy. Having been the assistant to Carlo Ancelotti when the Italian coaching great steered Real to the 10th - 'La Decima' - title in Lisbon two years ago, Zidane now gets a taste of the trophy for a third time after joining an elite few who have lifted it as both a player and a coach.
Once a favorite at Juventus, the 43-year-old Zidane said there is now no other club in his heart.
Two years ago, Real captain Sergio Ramos tied the game in the dying seconds to keep Real in the final, before it ran riot in extra time to prevail 4-1. Atletico came to Milan determined to make amends, but Simeone's squad was dominated from the opening whistle at San Siro stadium. Ramos tallied in the 15th minute to take the wind out of Atletico's sails and French striker Antoine Griezmann nearly widend the gap when he slammed a penalty off the underside of the crossbar seconds into the second half. Despite Yannick Carrasco knotting the score in the 79th minute, Atletico was undone in the shootout after club favorite Juanfran blasted his attempt off the upright. Carrasco's miss handed Cristiano Ronaldo the chance to secure Real's 11th crown with his subsequent spot kick.
The result left Simeone devastated, and the Argentinian gave an indication of his feelings when he admitted he could be pushed to think about his future with the two-time Europa League winner.
Atletico has still never lifted the European Cup, also losing the 1974 final to Bayern Munich in a replay.
Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos paid tribute to coach Zinedine Zidane's inspirational qualities after the Spanish giant was crowned kings of Europe for the 11th time on Saturday. Ramos has been one of the stars of Real's latest two triumphs, having scored a late equalizer that pushed the 2014 final into extra-ime before hitting the opener on Saturday after just 15 minutes, only for Yannick Carrasco to pull Atletico even with 11 minutes remaining in regulation time. But for the man-of-the-match, Zidane's cool-headedness and leadership skills have helped tighten relations in a Real dressing room that, earlier this season, was not quite as cohesive. Zidane was handed the head coach's position when Rafael Benitez was fired by Real in January. The former France and Real Madrid forward's superb match-winning volley secured the title for Real in 2002 when the Spaniards beat Bayer Leverkusen 2-1 in Glasgow, Scotland. Having been the assistant to Carlo Ancelotti when the Italian coaching great steered Real to the 10th - 'La Decima' - title in Lisbon two years ago, Zidane now gets a taste of the trophy for a third time after joining an elite few who have lifted the trophy as a player and a coach.
Serena Williams said on Saturday the health dangers posed by the Zika virus in Rio ahead of the Olympics are a serious concern, while Novak Djokovic pleaded for the impact on Brazilians not to be underestimated. An open letter addressed to the World Health Organization (WHO) signed by 150 international doctors, scientists and researchers on Friday called for the August Games to be moved or delayed to help prevent the spread of Zika.
Novak Djokovic of Serbia returns a shot against Aljaz Bedene of Britain at the French Open on Saturday.
Holding the Games in Rio, the second worst affected city in Brazil, would be "irresponsible" and "unethical" and could risk spreading the virus to "poor, as-yet unaffected places" like Africa and South Asia. The tennis event in Rio has already been hit by no-shows - although not necessarily health-related. So far, 17th-ranked John Isner of the United States, Austrian 15th seed Dominic Thiem, Bernard Tomic, the world number 22 from Australia and Spanish veteran Feliciano Lopez, 23 in the rankings, have all announced they are giving the Olympics a miss. They were joined on Saturday by former Roland Garros semifinalist Ernests Gulbis, who panned the sport's appearance at the Olympics as "tennis tourism". That group of no-shows could still be joined by 2008 champion Rafael Nadal if the Spaniard fails to recover from the wrist tendon injury which caused him to withdraw from the French Open on Friday. Men's world No 1 Djokovic said any talk of canceling or moving the Olympics was unrealistic.
He also believes the international coverage afforded to the Zika virus ignores the concerns of local people.
The controversial Gulbis, who also made the fourth round in Paris on Saturday, said he had no desire at all to represent Latvia at the Olympics. The World Health Organization has ruled out any change in timing or the location of the upcoming Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, shunning a call by doctors and scientists to shift the event over the Zika virus.
An open letter addressed to the global health body signed by 150 international doctors, scientists and researchers on Friday called for the August Games to be moved or delayed to help prevent the spread of Zika virus. Holding the Games in Rio, the second worst affected city in Brazil, would be "irresponsible" and "unethical" and could risk spreading the virus to "poor, as-yet unaffected places" like Africa and South Asia, said the letter. Zika, which can cause birth defects including a devastating syndrome known as microcephaly in which babies are born with unusually small heads and brains, can be introduced to a new region when a local mosquito picks it up from an infected human. If it lives long enough, the mosquito then infects people it subsequently bites, starting a vicious cycle.
Brazilian authorities on Saturday also said the Games would proceed as planned, with the health ministry saying it would continue to follow the guidance of WHO, which has deemed the risk of Zika infection in August - the middle of winter in Brazil - to be "minimal". Nearly 1,300 babies have been born in Brazil with irreversible brain damage since the mosquito-borne Zika began to spread there last year. The virus can also cause adult-onset neurological problems such as Guillain-Barre Syndrome, which can cause paralysis and death. And when Curry came on late, the Golden State Warriors were assured at least one more game in their record-setting season.
Oklahoma City Thunder forward Kevin Durant tries to shoot over Golden State Warriors' Draymond Green during Game 6 of their Western Conference final on Saturday. Thompson made a playoff-record 11 3-pointers and scored 41 points as the defending champions forced a seventh game in the Western Conference final with a 108-101 victory over the Oklahoma City Thunder on Saturday night. Curry bounced back from a slow start to finish with 29 points, 10 rebounds and nine assists. The Warriors, who set a regular-season record with 73 wins, will host Game 7 on Monday, trying to become the 10th team to overcome a 3-1 series deficit to reach the NBA Finals, against Cleveland.
Thompson scored 19 points in the fourth quarter to help the Warriors overcome an eight-point deficit.
Oklahoma City dominated Games 3 and 4 at home, but the Warriors made 21 of 44 3-pointers on Saturday, while OKC was just 3 of 23. Kevin Durant scored 29 points and Russell Westbrook added 28 for the Thunder, but Durant made just 10 of 31 shots and Westbrook was 10 of 27. OKC, which blew a number of fourth-quarter leads during the regular season but had been better in the playoffs, fell apart in the final minutes after Golden State had finally gone ahead for good. Thompson's barrage was similar to Curry's performance in Oklahoma City during the regular season. Thompson kept Golden State in it with four 3-pointers in just over seven minutes to start the fourth quarter.
Westbrook lost control of the ball, and after Thompson missed a 3, Westbrook turned the ball over again, leading to a layup by Curry. Steven Adams' powerful one-handed dunk on Warriors All-Star Draymond Green drew a roar from the crowd and gave Oklahoma City a 37-28 lead. Thompson opened the second half with back-to-back 3-pointers to give the Warriors a 54-53 edge, but the Thunder closed the quarter strong and led 83-75 heading into the fourth. New Orleans Pelicans guard Bryce Dejean-Jones was fatally shot after breaking down the door to a Dallas apartment, authorities said on Saturday.
A man living at the apartment was sleeping when he heard his front door kicked open, Dallas Police spokesman DeMarquis Black said in a statement. When Dejean-Jones began kicking at the bedroom door, the man retrieved a handgun and fired. Officers who responded found Dejean-Jones collapsed in an outdoor passageway, and he died at a hospital. Dejean-Jones was visiting his girlfriend for his daughter's first birthday, which was on Saturday, according to his agent, Scott W. He said the girlfriend returned to the apartment first while Dejean-Jones went for a walk after they had gone out. She lives on the fourth floor, and Dejean-Jones, who was visiting the complex for the first time, went to the third.
It is legal in Texas for someone to use deadly force in order to protect themselves from intruders. Julie Keel, a spokesperson for Camden Property Trust, the real estate company that owns the apartment complex confirmed the complex's manager had sent out an e-mail to residents saying that the person who had been shot had been trying to break into "the apartment of an estranged acquaintance" and that the person had "inadvertently" broken into the wrong apartment. The police could not confirm Dejean-Jones was trying to access an acquaintance's apartment.
I've been a Manchester United fan ever since I was a kid, enthralled by stars such as Bobby Charlton, Denis Law, George Best, and countless others. The 1958 Munich air crash, in which eight of the club's star players were killed, part of a generation of homegrown players known as the Busby Babes after their iconic manager, Matt Busby, still sticks in my mind. I was 11 at the time, and the image of the mangled wreck of the British European Airways' turboprop plane, which crashed as it was taking off in a snowstorm, will stick in my mind forever. The biggest loss was England forward Duncan Edwards, who'd risen through the ranks under Busby's tutelage, only to die days after the crash from horrendous injuries. The club has a massive following in China, as a 2012 poll by research specialists Kantar showed.
Before Malcolm Glazer bought the club in 2005 for 790 million pounds, it was the most profitable in the world. Alex Ferguson, a Scot who amassed 38 honors including 13 Premier League titles, five FA Cup trophies and two Champions League titles in his 27 years in charge at Old Trafford, is widely regarded as one of the most successful managers and tacticians of all time.
Ferguson personally handpicked his successor, the excellent David Moyes, who had worked wonders at Everton with little money to spend on players. But the Moyes magic failed to work at Old Trafford, and after his ugly dismissal, along came the taciturn Dutchman Louis van Gaal, who ultimately failed to get either the players, the fans or the media on his side, despite winning the FA Cup on May 21.
He was sacked hours after his FA Cup glory for the ultimate crime of failing to secure the club a place in next season's Champions League, the elite and lucrative European competition. So another messy sacking; and, at the time of writing, all eyes are on the mercurial Portuguese manager Jose Morinho to take over.
Jose Mourinho was expected to become Manchester United's new manager on Friday after reportedly agreeing a deal to take charge at Old Trafford.
British media reports on Thursday claimed an agreement is now in place for the former Chelsea manager to fulfil his long-held ambition to manage the Premier League club. United was set to officially confirm the 53-year-old's appointment after the deal was delayed due to discussions over Mourinho's image rights. Mourinho is said to have been offered a three-year contract that will pay him between 5 and 10 million pounds ($14 million) per season. It was also reported Mourinho, back in management five months after being fired by Chelsea in December, is set to be given bonuses that will pay 5 million and 2.5 million pounds respectively if he leads United to the Champions League or Premier League title. Talks between Mourinho's agent Jorge Mendes and United's executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward have resolved problems with Chelsea's control of his image rights, paving the way for the controversial and charismatic boss to fulfil his long-held dream of managing the Manchester giant. Mourinho was seen strolling back to his town house in the upmarket London district of Belgravia on Thursday, and soon after those images emerged it was reported he had agreed to the deal. Mourinho, always conscious of his public persona, was said to have spent part of Thursday crafting his message to United fans in a statement which will accompany the club's announcement. The former Real Madrid, Inter Milan and Porto boss will take charge of United for the first time when the club face Borussia Dortmund in Shanghai on July 22 on the first leg of a two-game tour of China.
However, Mourinho should appear on the home bench at Old Trafford before then because he is due to take charge of an England XI in a charity game for Unicef against a Rest of the World XI on June 5. One of the main obstacles to Mourinho's pursuits of silverware with United will be found on the other side of Manchester where his old rival Pep Guardiola is due to start work as City manager next week after moving to Eastlands from Bayern Munich.
Mourinho and Guardiola exchanged barbs throughout their time at Real Madrid and Barcelona respectively and the renewal of their bitter feud with both men in the same city promises to be one of the most fascinating aspects of the Premier League next season.
Although United legend Eric Cantona this week claimed Mourinho, renowned for his negative tactics, was not a good fit, the club's former defender Rio Ferdinand was quick to welcome his impending arrival. United icon Cristiano Ronaldo, now at Real Madrid where he played under Mourinho, added: "I hope United get back to being what they were because it's an impressive club but in the last years they lacked an identity a bit.
Mourinho is reported to already be lining up new signings as he seeks to bolster an unbalanced squad that limped to a fifth place finish in the Premier League before ending the unlamented Van Gaal era by beating Crystal Palace in the FA Cup final on Saturday. Even without the lure of Champions League action next season, Mourinho is hopeful of making several high-profile additions.
Zlatan Ibrahimovic, who worked with Mourinho at Inter Milan, is one target and on Thursday he hinted a move to Old Trafford could be in the cards. The Sweden striker has left Paris Saint Germain and, asked if there had been an offer from United, Ibrahimovic said with a smile: "I think it's a great move (by United) - you want action, you bring in Mourinho. Photographers scramble to get a shot of former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho outside his house in London on Thursday. Ronaldo, a three-time world player of the year, has never scored a goal at San Siro stadium but has the chance to match and surpass his own record of 17 Champions League goals in a season. Two years after Real defender Sergio Ramos scored the tying goal in the dying seconds to inspire a stunning extra-time comeback and secure a 10th triumph in Lisbon, the Portuguese superstar said winning an 11th crown is far more important than who hits the net. Victory would see Real Madrid embellish its reputation as the most successful club in Europe after winning the inaugural edition, the European Champions Clubs' Cup, in 1956 when Argentinian Hector Rial struck the winner in a 4-3 victory over French giant Stade Reims in Paris. Atletico's achievements may pale in comparison, but the threat from Diego Simeone's men, who have restricted Real to only one win in their past 10 meetings since the 2014 final, is legitimate.
Before winning two Europa League titles in 2010 and 2012, the Rojiblancos' last continental trophy was the defunct European Cup Winners' Cup in 1962.
Yet only two years after Lisbon, Simeone's men are back, having stunned Barcelona in the quarterfinals, and ended the hopes of the Catalan giant's former coach Pep Guardiola when they ousted his Bayern Munich side on away goals in the semifinals.
Real fans may have history on their side, but Zinedine Zindane's men have beaten Atletico only once in 10 meetings since their 4-1 victory in Lisbon two years ago. Unsurprisingly, Simeone is bullish ahead of a clash that Ronaldo said will settle which side rules the roost in the Spanish capital. He believes the key to beating Real will be breaking down a solid defence and making sure his players remain vigilant at set pieces.
Two years ago, Atletico was a whisker away from aven-ging its European Cup final loss to Bayern Munich in 1974 (4-0) after Diego Godin gave Simeone's men a 36th minute opener. Ramos' 93rd minute equalizer, however, pushed the match into extra time and, with the fresh momentum, Gareth Bale, Marcelo and Ronaldo, from the spot, struck to compound Atletico's misery.
Now, it is Ronaldo, Bale and French striker Karim Benzema who could have their work cut out, while Ramos and Pepe, Zidane's preferred centerback partnership, will be wary of a repeat of recent history.
Atletico has recorded 35 shutouts in 56 games this season, including at home to Barcelona and Bayern Munich when the German giant was dumped out of the competition.
Atletico also managed a 1-0 triumph at Real's Santiago Bernabeu stadium to inflict Zidane's squad with his only La Liga loss in four months when the sides last met in February.
Ronaldo, who has battled back from an injury scare in recent days, admitted: "Atletico always plays the same way.
After becoming the first Chinese and youngest ever rider to compete in three-day eventing at the 2008 Olympic Games in Beijing, Hua Tian said the intervening years have increased his commitment to success in representing his country on the international stage.
Son of a Chinese father and British mother, Hua Tian failed to qualify for the 2012 London Olympics but two years later he became the first Chinese equestrian to win an individual medal at the Asian Games in Incheon, South Korea, when he took silver in eventing. Hua Tian will embark on his second Olympic odyssey when he represents China at the Rio Olympics in August. He has proved to be an outstanding ambassador for his nation and his sport, carrying China's colors at iconic European events in Fontainebleau, Badminton, Burghley, Saumur, Blenheim and Chatsworth. In 2014, he qualified for three major championships and was the only Asian rider at the World Equestrian Games in Normandy. Hua Tian had a highly successful Olympic qualification campaign in 2015, winning one qualifier and placing second in another.
Equine sports rank as one of the fastest growing activities among China's affluent classes and will continue to expand. No, his Golden State Warriors are going back to Oklahoma City, after keeping their title reign and the winningest season in NBA history alive for at least one more game. Curry scored 31 points, raising his arms in the early moments to awaken Golden State's raucous crowd, and the defending champions staved off elimination with a 120-111 victory over the Thunder on Thursday night in Game 5 of the Western Conference final. For all the speculation about the current state of Curry's beat-up body - that troublesome ankle, sore knee or tender elbow - he did it all.
The MVP made a snazzy layup late and dished out six assists, while Klay Thompson added 27 points as Golden State sent the best-of-seven series back to Oklahoma City for Game 6 on Saturday night. The Warriors trail 3-2 and are trying to become just the 10th team to rally from a 3-1 series deficit. Kevin Durant scored 40 points and Russell Westbrook added 31 points, eight assists, seven rebounds and five steals for the Thunder, trying for the fifth NBA Finals appearance in franchise history and chasing just the second championship after the 1978-79 Seattle SuperSonics won it all.
The record-setting, 73-win Warriors, coming off their first back-to-back losses all season, were blown out at Oklahoma City by a combined 52 points. Durant's 3-pointer with 4:34 left got the Thunder within 103-98, then Curry answered with a three-point play.


Curry scored seven points in a 58-second stretch of the second quarter, but the Thunder didn't go away easily. Curry shot 9 for 20 and also had five steals, while Thompson had his 11th 20-point game for the second straight postseason despite shooting 2 for 9 from 3-point range. Kerr figured his Warriors might have an edge against the percentages of teams having trailed 3-1 because they're the defending champs and were playing at home, where they have been nearly unbeatable. Kerr called for center Andrew Bogut to do more and the 7-footer delivered with a playoff career-high 15 points and 14 rebounds for his second double-double this postseason and seventh of his career. Marreese Speights had a pair of three-point plays on follow shots and a 3 in the second quarter to give Golden State a nice lift off the bench. He had nine points in four minutes during that stretch and 14 points overall for his fifth double-digit scoring game this postseason. With his 1,248th career postseason point in the third, Curry passed Wilt Chamberlain (1,246) for second place on the franchise's playoff scoring list. Golden State Warriors' Stephen Curry drives to the basket against Kevin Durant of the Oklahoma City Thunder during the second half of Thursday's Game 5 of the Western Conference final in Oakland, California. The 24-year-old from Pontiac, Michigan, who began training camp hoping just to make the team scored both of Pittsburgh's goals in Thursday's 2-1 win over the Tampa Bay Lightning in Game 7 of the Eastern Conference final. Pittsburgh will host the Western Conference champion San Jose Sharks in Game 1 of the Stanley Cup final on Monday night. In a building littered with stars, it was the relentlessness of Rust and the steadiness of 22-year-old Canadian goaltender Matt Murray that provided the difference as the Penguins reached the final for the first time since 2009. In disarray in December when Sullivan took over for Mike Johnston, the Penguins sprinted through April and May and will head into June with a chance to win the franchise's fourth Cup, one that would serve as a bookend to its last triumph seven years ago, when stars Sidney Crosby and Evgeni Malkin were still in their early 20s.
Yet here they are after dispatching the New York Rangers in five games, the Presidents' Trophy-winning Washington Capitals in six and the defending Eastern Conference champion Lightning in seven. Jonathan Drouin scored his fifth goal of the playoffs for the Lightning and Andrei Vasilevskiy made 37 saves, but it wasn't enough to send Tampa Bay back to the final for a second straight year. Captain Steven Stamkos had two shots in 11:55 in his return from a two-month layoff while dealing with blood clots. That group includes Rust, who forced his way onto the roster thanks to feverish skating and a self-confidence that belies his 5-foot-11 frame. That effort - or "desperation level" as Crosby calls it - provided the Penguins with the boost they needed to overcome history. Pittsburgh had dropped five straight Game 7s at home, including a 1-0 loss to Tampa Bay in a 2011 series in which both Crosby and Evgeni Malkin missed due to injury. That loss had become symbolic of the Penguins' postseason shortcomings following their gritty run to the Cup in 2009. When injury forced the 2008 Beijing gold medalist to withdraw from the 2012 London Games, he described it as "one of the saddest moments of my career". No wonder he finds it baffling the likes of American John Isner, Australian Bernard Tomic, rising Austrian Dominic Thiem and fellow Spaniard Feliciano Lopez have chosen to skip Rio in August. Isner blamed his decision on a crammed tennis calendar, with the US Open taking place shortly after the Rio Games and the Davis Cup quarterfinals just after Wimbledon. But the lack of ranking points at this year's Olympics was also a major factor for the American.
World 1 Novak Djokovic had some sympathy for players such as Isner and thought ranking points should have been awarded in Rio like they had been in London, where up to 750 points were on offer.
But points or no points, Nadal thought those who choose to skip the Games will end up regretting their decisions.
It is the kind of punishment her younger sister, world No 1 Serena, metes out on a regular basis. Since reaching the last 16 here in 2010, Venus has made it to at least the quarterfinals at the three other Grand Slams.
But after being diagnosed with the debilitating Sjogren's syndrome in 2011, playing on the slow red clay has proved to be a particularly difficult challenge for the 35-year-old.
LeBron James scored 23 points then sat for the fourth quarter and Kevin Love scored 25 as Cleveland unleashed tenacious defense against Toronto to regain control of the Eastern Conference final with a 116-78 rout in Game 5 on Wednesday night. On their home court in front of 20,000-plus screaming fans following two straight losses in Canada, the Cavs opened a 34-point lead in the first half and never slowed en route to taking a 3-2 series lead. They can clinch their second straight conference title and a trip to the NBA Finals with a win in Game 6 on Friday night in Toronto.
The Raptors, who came in with momentum and confidence after winning Games 3 and 4, left Quicken Loans Arena shaken and one loss from having their deepest playoff run stopped. James had eight assists and six rebounds in 31 minutes before checking out late in the third quarter with the Cavs up by 37.
Kyrie Irving added 23 points and he, James and Love outscored the Raptors 43-34 in the first half. DeMar DeRozan scored 14 points and Kyle Lowry had 13 for the Raptors, who were overwhelmed from the start. The only positive for Toronto was center Jonas Valanciunas, who returned after missing eight straight games with a sprained right ankle. Playing defense as if every possession was the game's last, Cleveland held Toronto to 34 points in the opening half while building a 31-point halftime lead - the largest in conference finals history. Since their expansion arrival in 1993, the Raptors had never been down by 30 at halftime in any game - regular season or playoffs - but they have rarely seen a defense like this either.
Love found his shooting touch after it went missing during the lost weekend in Toronto, where he went just 5 of 23 and was benched for the fourth quarter of Game 4. He finished 8 of 10 from the field - a confidence-boosting performance that should temporarily quiet his critics. The Cavs made a point of getting Love the ball right away and he responded by making all four field goal attempts, dropping a 3 late in the first quarter that pushed the Cavs to a 37-19 lead. Cleveland's onslaught continued in the second quarter, and when James got free for an easy two-handed dunk, Cavs fans could relax and begin making TV viewing plans for Friday. These looked more like the Cavaliers who opened the postseason with 10 straight wins, obliterated the Raptors by a combined 50 points in Games 1 and 2 and given a chance to beat whomever survived in the West. Cleveland Cavaliers' LeBron James talks with teammate Kevin Love during the second quarter of Wednesday's Game 5 of the NBA's Eastern Conference final against the Toronto Raptors at Quicken Loans Arena in Cleveland.
Olympic qualifying for golf ends in seven weeks, at which time players will have to determine if medals outweigh mosquitoes.
For now, there is only concern - and Rory McIlroy is the latest player to say Zika is on his mind.
In an interview with the BBC after his Irish Open victory, McIlroy said he has been reading up on the mosquito-borne virus, which has been linked to serious birth defects. McIlroy is engaged, and indicated he and his fiancee might be starting a family in the next few years. Willett's wife, Nicole, had their first child just 11 days before he slipped on the green jacket. The International Golf Federation posted a two-page update on its website last month, and is passing along Zika-related material from the International Olympic Committee and the World Health Organization to tours and player liaisons. Andy Levinson, executive director of USA Golf, said on Tuesday updates from WHO and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention are posted in the weekly bulletins left in lockers and on the Players Links website, where PGA Tour players get other pertinent information they don't want to miss - like tee times, and FedEx Cup points, and where to leave their courtesy cars. Two weeks ago at The Players Championship, the PGA Tour's doctor took part in one-on-ones with players about Zika. Vijay Singh made a passing reference to Zika last month when the 53-year-old Fijian decided not to play. The other players to pull out - Adam Scott, Louis Oosthuizen, Charl Schwartzel - cited a busy schedule or family priorities.
Ask a player a question, and there's bound to be an answer, even if it's not entirely informed. IGF executive director Antony Scanlon said he was in Rio de Janeiro a few weeks ago for meetings and saw workers spraying "an unbelievable amount of anti-mosquito" repellant around the various venues.
He also repeated the timing - August is the tail end of winter in Brazil, and mosquitoes are not expected to be as prevalent. It could be another example that the Olympics mean more to the women, who rarely get a stage as large as this and have a stronger tradition of competing for country in what was the first truly global tour. Various headlines made it sound as though McIlroy and Willett might skip the Olympics because of Zika, and while their answers allowed some wiggle room, the context of their statements suggested nothing has changed. This much is clear - golfers currently eligible for the Olympics are having to study more than hole locations and wind direction. Northern Ireland's Rory McIlroy tracks a tee shot under the watchful eye of England's Danny Willett during the final round of the Irish Open at The K Club, County Kildare, Ireland last Sunday.
Just over six months ago, Knox got in as an alternate for his first World Golf Championship, scrambled to secure a Chinese visa and wound up winning the HSBC Champions in Shanghai.
Knox had a one-shot lead with three holes to play in the Irish Open until Rory McIlroy hit two shots with a fairway metal that will be talked about in Ireland for years - onto the 16th green for a two-putt birdie (and a two-shot swing for the lead) and to three feet on No 18 for an eagle. It was his third runner-up finish since Shanghai - he went straight from China to Mexico and lost in a playoff to Graeme McDowell - and moved Knox to a career-best No 23 in the world.
Since missing the cut in his Masters debut, Knox has a pair of runner-up finishes and a performance at The Players Championship that brought him just as much attention for how he handled misfortune with humor and honesty. He was contending at the TPC Sawgrass when his tee shot on the island-green 17th came up a yard short.
He called it an "epic fail." He said he would be "terrified" hitting that shot the next day (he hit the green and three-putted for his only bogey in a final round of 66).
Knox, who has lived in Florida since playing college golf at Jacksonville University, took up European Tour membership after winning the HSBC.
But he faces a big stretch now - Wentworth, the Memorial, US Open, Bridgestone Invitational, Scottish Open, British Open over the next eight weeks, all of them with plenty of Ryder Cup world points available. The Symetra Tour is not even a third into its season, but Madelene Sagstrom already is in the record book. The Swede's runner-up finish last week in the Gosling's Dark & Stormy Classic was worth $9,467 and pushed her season earnings to $103,181, breaking the money record that Cindy LaCrosse set in 15 tournaments in 2010.
Some of the purses have increased to help Sagstrom become the first to break the $100,000 mark on the LPGA Tour's development circuit. Then again, she did in just under half the tournaments as LaCrosse, and the Swede even missed a cut. She has won twice, was runner-up twice and, except for that missed cut, hasn't finished out of the top five. She has earned more money than the next three players behind her on the money list combined.
As Bryson DeChambeau resumes his pursuit of a PGA Tour card, this much is clear: There are perks for winning the US Amateur. Colonial will be his fifth PGA Tour event since turning pro, but he has used only three of the seven sponsor exemptions he is allowed as a non-tour member.
DeChambeau was one of the two players chosen by former Colonial champions (the other was Kramer Hickok).

Keeping your knees bent at the same angle, about somebody the doing you can without straining with each crunch. Now, all of the production capabilities possible at our home office in Nashville Tennessee & Norfolk Virginia is possible in the great state of Texas.

He then took an extended break before missing the cut at The Players Championship and then finished tied for 18th a week ago at the Byron Nelson before finally winning in the Lone Star State after three runner-up finishes there.
He got to 14-under after a 12-foot birdie at No 7, which he followed by reaching back for a hand slap with caddie James Edmondson, the four-time Colonial club champion. Speakers included Bruce Robinson, president and CEO of the Canadian Free Style Ski Association; David M. I have a phenomenal team and great players who are also talented, and it was together we achieved what we did tonight," he said. His arrival was really important for us because he has a great relationship with the players.
I mean, many athletes and people already planned in advance," said the Serb after his 6-2, 6-3, 6-3 win over Britain's Aljaz Bedene on Saturday. The Thunder committed six turnovers in the final 2:55, and Westbrook had three in the last 55 seconds.
Curry scored 46 points and tied the NBA record with 12 3-pointers to help the Warriors beat the Thunder in overtime. Green, who had hit Adams in the groin area twice during the series, was a constant target for the vocal Thunder fans. Many football writers dismissed as "fantasy" their claim that 108 million people in China are fans of the club, but I think they forgot two things about Chinese supporters. The extraordinary takeover in 2005 by the US-based Glazer family continues to leave a bitter taste in the mouths of most fans.
However, by using the club's assets to back his bid, by the time the deal was complete Man United was 525 million pounds in debt. It was Moyes who identified and nurtured the raw talent of Wayne Rooney at Everton before the Liverpool-born youngster moved to Man United. Westbrook's 3-pointer with 6:06 left in the third put the Thunder ahead 68-67 for their first lead of the night. His best chance came on a breakaway in the second period that deflected off Murray and trickled wide. It's part of what Sullivan calls "playing the right way," a way abetted by the influx of speed brought in by GM Jim Rutherford. The Olympics is the most important event in the world of sport," the nine-time French Open champion said on Thursday. At this stage in my life, in my career, it's like you don't want to lose early," the seven-time Grand Slam champion said after walloping fellow American Louisa Chirico 6-2, 6-1 on Thursday. But after matching Serena's winning second-round scoreline, Venus was eager to cherish her moment in the sun. I think with every year that passes and every moment that I play, I'm grateful for this experience and blessed. Asked about it on Tuesday at the BMW PGA Championship, the 28-year-old from England said he was keeping on top of it. There's going to be millions of people watching the Olympics, and you have 11,000 athletes right in the heart of where it's at," Willett said. He said five or six players have asked him about Zika, though none has said it would keep her from Rio. Both men are closely monitoring the Zika situation in Brazil as the Olympic Games draw closer. Knox is No 3 in the Olympic ranking for the UK, though he most likely would have to get into the top 15 to earn a trip to Rio. He gets in the Memorial and Quicken Loans as the US Amateur champion, which has a provision that it doesn't matter if he turns pro. A But he promised me on his returnA back to the United States I would be the first media personality to interview him in New York City.A  I never will forget how confident he was that he would return victorious.

So I don't doubt the club's following in China, especially since China Central Television resumed showing English Premier League matches this past season.
More recently, the club, which at one stage was where everyone wanted to play, has attracted headline-grabbers such as Cristiano Ronaldo and the wonderfully mercurial Eric Cantona, who was given to bursts of extraordinary brilliance on the field and gnomic utterances off it. But Golden State led 81-77 going into the fourth and began the final period with an 8-0 burst. And undaunted by a series of postseason failures that made it seem the window on their primes was closing.

These are conservative figures and take no considerations for attaching a star to this film in making the film a success. This is a two year certificate program with the top 50% of our graduating class being offered a two year paid internship with our production company, giving you a working resume in your chosen discipline where you can continue working for Maxima Vision Films or choose practically any other production company within the US or abroad. But if you want to increase its intensity, one goal two hold effective in rapid succession. However, we feel the very story is strong enough on its own merit to assure success of distribution of this film, especially considering the number of qualitydistribution outlets available to film makers today.
Prone Leg all like stomach, include or which a training and resistance training to your routine. We feel certain with the budget of this film being so low, and the quality of story being so good, there is no reason we cannot at least double an investors return on their investment, but quite likely to earn a substantial return.We cannot guarantee the financial success of this venture.
These workshops also get you working immediately with our professionals who are making movies each and every day. A rather unsightly bulge over your belt or a your you fat over working take benefit from leg lifts. These workshops can be either taken over weekends, camps, taken one day a week at 3 hour classes, or two days at 1 hour and half, both of which you will also be involved in a three hour workshop on the weekend at our production facilities. Frankly, the overriding qualification for prospective investors in this or similar projects is that they must be fully accredited, and able to lose all or part of their investment, incurring no significant financial damage as a result of loss.
That said, we can guarantee thatMaxima Visions Films and Productions has developed and sold compelling stories with universal relevance, and has assembled a team of production professionals who are completely dedicated to, and competent in,delivery of a high quality product.As entertainment appetites and accessibility grows, the industry is begging for high quality product to fill the ever-increasing demands.
Given current worldwide economic conditions, the entertainment industry stands virtually alone as a growth industry. If you are an aspiring actor, you need to at the very least know how to prepare for a casting interview, as you only have one shot in this business to get it right!A Do you know how much work goes into the production of a film or television production?

Certainly not so difficult to try and attempting clients in up and fat that is covering your abs. What I thought would be a nine-hole outing turned into eighteen holes and a White House visit and a Presidential appointment in 1969. Maxwell is going to be spending so much time here, to do a large amount of productions here in Texas, as opposed to traveling to either the east or west coast. Remember, a demo reel is just what the name implies, it is a demo of your acting abilities. General William Rogers, Hattie, President Nixon and HBA Petey and I would become great friends and in 1965 we would meet again. A The United Planning Organization a self-help community organization was hiring "Neighborhood Workers." A They hired three, me, Petey and H. At your own school or church, we can even make available a after school program for the cost of basically any other after school program, but you are learning what you are passionate about, making movies. A Two years later Rap would be named Chairman of the Student Non-Violent Coordinating Committee.
Randall Maxwell will act as the Executive producer on any of these projects.This particular investment group has chosen to use the same success formula Dr.
Each of these programs will ultimately produce a short student film that you may use on your resume for your chosen discipline, entered into competition with other Christian schools and churches in our upcoming 2015 film festival.
A I would become a Roving Leader (Youth Gang Task Force) for the DC Recreation Department and Petey would find his new home in radio at WOL. Maxwell used back in his secular film production days, which is basically, production by the numbers.
What this means is simple; with the number of quality venues of distribution now available if one can keep a production fewer than 3 million dollars, one is practically assured to at least break even on a film, if the story has any merit what so ever. A Three UPO "Neighborhood Workers" would go on to establish their own independent idenities. This means, they especially like projects where they spread their risk, that they simply match dollar for dollar of the projects budget. We are not interested in the number of times you have had an extra spot in a film, or even a speaking role in a student film at some film school.
A Petey would win 2 Emmy Awards and in 2007 there was a feeble attempt to do his life story on the big screen. We do already have two projects which this investment group has expressed interest in producing in Texas.
As mentioned, we are as committed to quality product, films that will help to shape our culture positively, as we are to hiring as much local talents as possible. We are absolutely committed to producing such quality that in the near future that anyone who has any interest in producing a redemptive story idea, there is only one logical solution as to what company one is to come to for producing such a product, and that is Maxima Vision Films.


He is now in jail serving a life sentence for the murder of a black Deputy Sherrif in Fulton County, Georgia. We feel after viewing how serious we are about those talents we hire above, you will realize how serious we are in producing for you the most professional production money can buy. During this scen her demmons rebel, crying out to her, it is them who are her friends, it is this pastor who is trying to manipulate her and take advantage of her. URGENT NEEDSAs already mentioned, in order for Maxima Visions Films to go past pre-production and go into actual production of films here in Texas, we have need of finding the talents needed to have at least two feature films going at any particular time. A A Come now to get involved in our celebration of our opening up our home office in Nashville, Tennessee. If one has read our home page, you will find we also have serious interest in developing a film school as well, and we might just find that Texas is the ideal place to have such a school.
Get involved now with a company who is committed to harnessing the power of the mediums of film and television to help shape our culture positively verses negatively, as Hollywood has for decades. Please see below the talents we are seeking immediately, and as you read through, please also consider if you would also like teaching on a collegiate level in our film school. Brian McIntyre.A  He was sitting almost alone and there was no one waiting in line (compared to today's media circus). You may also call our Executive Producer at (757) 636-8163 to discuss your experience and any ideas you may have with him. At present, we are seriously seeking those who have a very similar look to the photos below, as we are seeking to do trailers for each of the above films immediately and need those who look like the photos below. A  I looked down and notice that all the white media were seated on one side of half-court and all the blacks were seated on the other side of the half-court line. For Sister Surrendered we need almost an identical match, as the actor who we are seeking is a twin sister to Darla above. In Rachels Grace we need a close look alike for Rachel at present age, and her as a child, a teen, then a 20 something.
Maxwell is also available in Texas to work as either a producer or consultant on any feature film production. He is also available to do most any kind of crew work, from script writing, producing, directing, and assisting in any phase of a film or television production.Dr. Maxwell is also available to assist in teaching any area of film making;Are you interested in getting into film or television productions?
He stepped in front of me and said "I got it."A It would be the start of the 4th quarter that Mark returned to the press table table and apologize for his unprofessional actions. Maxwell is certified and qualified to teach or tutor in many areas, especially Script Writing for film and televisionand producing, and directing. A There were other mistakes like someone thought a black Judy Holland was VP material---far from it. We offer either group workshops or private lessons.Do you have a story idea that you think is hot for the time and need help in the development of the story into a feature film script or television script, and finally have it made into a feature film or television production?
A It took a minute but in the meantime, he was making an effort to bring about change in his own way. A But according veteran (32 years) sports writer Bill Rhoden of the New York Times, progress in sports media pressrooms around the country are on a slow boat to China.A His recent appearance on the widely acclaimed television news show Meet the Press, he said, "the NBA, NFL and MLB are still dragging their feet.
MaxwellI would sincerely love to help any young person aspiring to break into the entertainment industry in any way I can. Media pressrooms at Deadline are still the last plantations.A A Pioneering broadcaster and former NBA CBS basketball analyst Sonny Hill and now a sports talk show host on WIP Radio in Philadelphia said, "I am not surprised by Rhoden's statement, very little has changed in media pressrooms.
Before being called to the ministry back in 1999, I had spent most all of my adult life, 20+ years in the secular film industry. A One of the problems there is no networking among blacks who have moved it up the ladder." A That is an understatement. I have witnessed firsthand what a corrupt industry it can be, so, I would love to be able to coach a young person in ways to avoid some of the costly mistakes I made when I was young.Back in 1999 when first called to ministry, I had actually thought I would never again be involved in the film industry, as I could not see how ministry and the film industry could co-exist, because of the very nature of the industry. Had it not been for my desire to return to school so that I could teach on a collegiate level what I had done all my life, I would have never come to the conclusion I have today, that we can actually use this medium to shape our culture positively. I came to realize that Satan has certainly used this most powerful medium to shape our culture to fit his agenda, so why couldnt we.
I had wanted to teach, so I did not have to take funds out of this ministry I had been called to live on.While back in school seeking my degree I came to realize more and more, just how much power this medium has to impact. I began to realize what more powerful medium could there be to at least share Gods message, to at least plant a seed to get a viewer to at least begin to seek truth, in hopes that they may find the real love Christ my Lord has for a hurting world. A  The copy rights for Inside Sports is own by News Week Magazine and it is own by the Washington Post.
I hope to lead young film makers down the right paths, many of which I missed along the road during my secular days in film making.
A A First, there was a a problem with the PR Men from hell, Brian Sereno and Matt Williams. I hope to make such an impression that will inspire young people to realize that if they truly have some talent within the entertainment industry, that they at least owe it to our Lord to do it with all their heart for His ultimate glory!Talent & Model Management CompanyUn-Like so many other agencies!
A A It was brought to my attention that Sereno was disrespecting the ladies of The Roundball Report. First and foremost, because our Talent and Model Management Company is actually married to our own production company, we will always strive to use as much of our own talents in our own productions as is possible to still keep the integrity of the production its self.
By using our own talent for our own productions, this gives our talents actual work, which they can add to their resume.
This of course makes an individual talent more marketable for us to sell to other production companies. A The meeting was set before a Wizard's game in the press louge but Scott Hall was the lead man.
It has a domino effect.We are now taking resumes, head shots, and portfolio shots from any aspiring actors or models that are aspiring to get involved in the entertainment industry. A He listened and we disagreed on some points but when we walked away from the table we were on the same page. Maxwell is here on assignment with the ministry he has been called, we feel that the ideal would be to find a property that both Maxima Visions Films and Hope Retreats International, which is Dr. AS a part of the program for troubled youth, there is an element of a work program, thus making as many students as needed to help around the studios as far as assistant, general house- keeping and maintenance of the areas, keeping cost down. We are also looking into working with the manufacturers of log homes and module homes, so as to use our facilities as model homes to use to market other homes in the area, thus bring in another source of income for the joint project.
The ministry is of course a non-profit venture as well, thus this could be used as an advantage in a joint venture to be able to write off most all losses.We have particular interest in both the production company and film school working as one identity. Secondly; A student intern makes for less expensive labor cost while benefiting the student at the same time, as the student can then put this on their professional resume as real work done.
To steal some of the thunder from the school page to demonstrate here the advantages of a student coming to our school verses a tradition college, we will add some of those benefits here.The greatest danger most of us face is not that our aim is too high and we miss it, but that our aim is too low and we reach it. A The community and everyone in it was a friend, the old and the young, the black and the white and the healthy and the lame. Many universities and film schools do a very good job in training their students in the art of film making, but then it is completely up to you to go out into this competitive world of film making to find your own job. First words that come out of your prospective employers mouth is; What experience do you have? A I was honored to speak at his retirement held at the arena just before the Bullets moved to Washington and changed their name to the Wizards.A Denny Gordon was in ticket sales and it seem like he knew everyone who brought a ticket. Well, if you are like most, you have never done any actual work on a real film set, other than the few simple student films you did with your class mates in college. Upon fulfilling that agreement you may be given a new contract or you may choose to go elsewhere, but at least now you will be going with a very real, producer, director, screen writer, actor or editors resume, and not just a resume stating all the things you did in film school.Because of the very nature of our school, we are only seeking the serious minded film makers, those who are willing to pay the price for excellence. A He was made the scapegoat after being sold out by his assisstant coach Bernie Bickerstaff and others. In fact, our tuition is less than practically any other film school, and if you are serious and you are in at least your top 50% of your graduating class and you do receive the two year contract, your education actually cost you nothing, as the amount of money you make on your contract for two years will pay you back your tuition and you will have actually earned money for getting educated.Unfortunately, many who go to college to receive a degree in film making spend so much more time in studying every other subject that is required to get a degree, so little time is ever available to truly learn the craft of film making. This is not a school for those who have hopes of teaching film and television.By combining the school to the production company has many advantages to the production company as well.
Many production companies during times when they themselves are not doing a production, the cost is the same and continues even in down time.
A The meeting revolved around a charity all-star game scheduled for the Bahamas, the island home of NBA star Mycal Thompson. With the school attached, there is always production going on.Finally, the source of income coming from tuition is a continuous source of income, even in down time in productions. The production company can also make these students available to other production companies who lease our facilities. A Magic Johnson was one of All-Stars participating.A Representatives from the NBA included VP Ron Thorne, Legal Counsel Gary Bettman and head of security Horace Balmer.
Not necessarily because we feel this is the ideal place to produce feature films, but because there is a much needed service needed here is our main reason for being here. That service is, what our Executive Producer is here to accomplish.This whole area is in much need for a Christ centered resident recovery program for troubled youth. Though this program is a much needed service and a perfect way for the Christian community to get involved in sharing the real love Christ our Lord has for a hurting world in a very practical way, if their church does not have a desire to get involved, they do not either. A A Gary Bettman is the Commissioner of the NHL, Thorne is somewhere lurking in the NBA, Balmer has since retired and Magic is a role model for Black America? Unfortunately, so many of this Christian community are so involved in their own Churchs denominational agenda, and keeping their own Churchs mortgage paid, they do not have the time to devote to making this happen.In fact, all across America today, the average church spends 90% of their income in just paying their mortgage and administration cost, leaving very little for outside ministry. A A The short lived existence of basketball legend Michael Jordan as a Wizard's player and Executive in the front office.
This is the ministry who will end up paying a large portion of the expenses to support this youth retreat. The vision of our parent mission leads and guides everything that we do, both at Hope Retreats and Maxima Visions films. A After the story broke he and several teammates made light of it during introductions of a game. A He was eventually suspended for most of the 2009a€“10 season.A The thing that I find disturbing about this Donald Sterling charade is that folks are acting like they were surprised by his rants against blacks. Maxwell, Maxima Visions Films, and our investment group are so committed to making a success here in Texas. A A I also notice the same "Old faces and voices" are called on to respond to the racist acts by men like Sterling---when they are a part of the problem . A He and Sterling were good friends because "Birds of a feather flock together." A  Check Magic's history out and you will discover the two have a lot in common. A Magic's claim to be a minority owner of the LA Dodgers is another sham (token black face). James Brown (CBS Sports) another mis-guilded brother claiming to be a minority baseball owner and an expert on racism. Please readOur most pressing news as of September 2015, something I hope all readers might read before searching other pages on this site.
A He did finally admit on the late George Michael Show (Sports Machine) "I have no say in making baseball decisions as a minority owner." A His role as a minority owner is to be paraded out on Opening Day as the black face to read the starting line-ups.
A A This is the same Michael Wilbon that I had at least two recent conversations about the use of the N word as a term of endearment. A I have to give him credit, he will at least talk to me face to face and not behind my back. A I tried to explain that his rationale that his grandfather's use the word as a term of endearment does not make it right today. A I told him he should not go on national television saying it is okay to use the N word among friends and family.
A It gives bigots like Donald Sterling the Green Light to do the same among his friends and family.
A Plus, Michael told me he was not going to appear on the ESPN Show Outside the Lines because the white host had no horse in the race! A A I wish that Magic, James, Michael and the rest of the media experts would defer to black men like Hank Aaron, Dr. Maxwell will be deciding upon and after this illness passed we will take a look at producing these scripts into feature films or television productions.
Maxwell is spending this time taking care of his wife, and not in production, he has plenty of time to read scripts. A But they wear the battle scars and have been on the front lines of the civil rights movement in real life and in the sports arenas of America. A In other words, they have been there and done that.A I guess that is wishful thinking, especially when everyone wants to be an expert on television. A In the meantime, they don't know their asses from a hole in the ground but the beat goes on and on. Now, all the services offered at our other production facilities will be available to serve Tennessee. A Auerbach would go a step further in the 1966-67 NBA season, when he stepped A down after winning nine titles in 11 years, and made Bill Russell player-coach. A A trailblazers, RED AND DOTIE AUERBACHi»? ON INSIDE SPORTSA Russell would eventually be the first black to win an NBA championship. At present we have two major investment groups, one of which has already committed funding four feature films or television productions every year over the next five years. A Ask any professional in the film or television industry how difficult it is to obtain the funding for a feature film or television production. No one in Nashville is even producing a film per year, let alone cranking out four feature films or television productions each and every year, not until now.
A There are far too many crying "Foul" and playing the victims in this charade, to include some NBA owners.A Let me start with my homeboy, the great Elgin Baylor who was the Clippers GM for over 2 decades. His teams were perennial losers on the court and in attendance, but he picked up his check every two weeks and kept his mouth shut. A A In his deposition, Elgin spoke about what he called Sterling's 'plantation mentality,' alleging the owner in the late 1990s rejected a coaching candidate, Jim Brewer, because of race. A Talking about an organization needing a change of name and a face-lift---meet Leon Jenkins.A Jenkins seen above at a press conference trying to explain why the li»?ocal branch was honoring Sterling during the 100th Anniversary of the organization next month.
A A He explained the previous award had been approved by the man he replaced and he just went along to get along.
A A Sterling won't be the first to sleep black and think white when it comes to sex, politics and money. Slave owners lived by the credo and in modern day history there was the late Senator Strom Thurmond.
A Nike NBA rep John Phillips and I met with VP Rod Thorn, League Counsel Gary Bettman and Head of League Security, Horace Balmer. A The meeting centered around whether Magic Johnson, Mycal Thompson and a group of NBA All-Stars would be allowed to travel to the Bahamas for a charity basketball game without league approval. The game had been played in the Bahamas the previous year without incident or controversy.A It was obvious that there was a power-play being made by the league office to cancel the game.
Thorn open the meeting by asking who was going to be responsible if one of the players was hurt during the game? A Magic suggested that the topic of conversation just might be centered around an injury to a player.
I tried to explain that playing the game was no different then one of the players participating in a pick-up game on a New York City playground in the off season. A What is this some kind of plantation?"A The room went silent and Horace Balmer the only other black in the room just shook his head and seem to be lost for words.
A Thorn called off the discussion and promised to get back to us but he never did.A In the meantime, Magic Johnson disappeared and changed his number. A Mycal was a class act but his hands were tied when Magic decided to do his Houdini act.A Gary Bettman now runs the NHL, Ron Thorn is still in the NBA somewhere calling the shots, Horace Balmer has since retired and Magic is the face (black) in the middle of the Donald Sterling charade.
A When all is said and done, the real victim despite all of her baggage is the girlfriend (The Whistle Blower) V. A NBA Commissioner Adam Silver during his annoucement as it related to the punishment of Donald Sterling apologize to black NBA pioneers Earl Lloyd, Chuck Cooper and Magic Johnson.
A He reminds me of the controversial Celebrity Chef Paula Deen who alledgely use The N word to describe her love for black folks.
A  How should we expect her to know if she has never walked in our shoes ?A  When it is a part of your DNA it is difficult to rid yourself of the gene.A  A One morning I was watching Ms. This award was longed overdue and I wonder why it took the NAACP so long to finally recognized Mr. Belafonte in accepting the award asked, "Where are today's black leaders?A  Our children's blood is still running in our streets---there is work still to be done.
The coalition stated it will urge President Obama to mention an urban jobs plan in his state of the Union speech on February 12th----Good luck!
Ben Carson of John Hopkins University Hospital.A  His prayer and message was centered around health care, the economy, American debt, and tax reform, thus taking dead aim at President Obama's platform for the nation. Carson spend 25 minutes talking about the nation's ills and solutions with the President sitting less than 5 feet from him.A  When all was said and done, President Obama was not looking so Presidential! Carson set the record straight from the very beginning.A  He made it clear he was not taking any wooden nickels. In 2010, he became that series' youngest driver and the first black driver to win a race at Greenville-Pickens Speedway. A close friend of mine that has been partially paralyzed by strokes, pays for aids to "help". If they show up, they usually just sit and do nothing, root through her jewelry and personal effects, and some have been caught stealing jewelry. One was there when she collapsed with another stroke, and instead of calling for help, she called her boyfriend and left, leaving her patient to manage on her own. It runs M - F from 10am - Noon and starting on Monday July 22 will repeat from 4pm - 6pm each day.
My opinions about Tiger Woods or any other issue are mine and I could give a damn about what Feinstein or anybody else things about them. In their prime at theA Washington Post, they were among the best sports writers in the country. A I was up close and personal with the sports department.A Kindred and Chad were talented writers but you could not trust them, Cornheiser and Feintstein's talent, they easily blended in with the landscape of the paper.
A Feinstein called Wilbon the biggest ass kisser in sports media, if that is true he had great teacher in Cornheiser. A When Solomon tried to kick Cornheiser to the curve (fire him) in the 80s he was able to move to the Style section of the paper. A One black female Washington Post columnist wrote a book titled "Plantation on the Potomac." A She was describing her employer.
A Hopefully, they were asked to participate and were of the same mindset as Wilbon not comfortable with Mr. A Goodell makes more than any player in the NFL and he never has to make a tackle or catch a pass.A The owners recent pay out to the players for injuries suffered on their watch was peanuts compared to the billions they make year in and year out. A When he refused a request by his mother to cease using the word and a similar plea by poet Myra Angelo. Martin Luther Kinga€™s 1963 march on Washington and 46 years since his assassination in Memphis, Tenn.
With the high-scoring Macauley, elite passer Cousy, and new prodigy Sharman, Auerbach had a core that provided high-octane fast-break basketball. In the next years until 1956, the Celtics would make the playoffs every year, but never won the title. Brown was desperate to turn around his struggling and financially strapped franchise, which was reeling from a 22a€“46 record.[5]A The still young but already seasoned Auerbach was made coach. A Nike NBA rep John Phillips and I met with VP Rod Thorn, League Counsel Gary Bettman and Head of League Security, Horace Balmer.A The meeting centered around whether Magic Johnson, Mycal Thompson and a group of NBA All-Stars would be allowed to travel to the Bahamas for a charity basketball game without league approval. A He was right on point.A To this day I think Magic had a previous discussion with the league office. James Gholson, Red Auerbach, Biff Carter, Jessie Chase, Morgan Wooten, Everett Cookie Payne Sr., Frank Bolden, Dr.
Leo Hill, Roper McNair, Earl Alfred, Maxwell Honemond, Tilman Sease, William Roundtree, Charlie Baltimore, Jaky Mathews, Ferdinand Day, Nick Turner, Walter Brooks, Ted McIntye, and my saviors, Dave Brown and Bighouse Gaines.A  They knew their Xs and Os, but more important, they were there for our highs and lows.A  Where have all those flowers gone? We never could have made it without them.I have given up on the Pigskin Club, but keeping hope alive for the DC Recreation Department and the Roving Leader Program. BELL 12-25-1940---8-1-2013A A GOOD COP WHO BROKE THE CODE OF SILENCE IN THE WASHINGTON, DC POLICE DEPARTMENT. A The real Serpico is seen leaving the Bronx Courthouse alone after testifying before the Knapp Commission on wide spread police corruption in the department. A In the old days police A would carry a "drop knife---an inexpensive weapon cops would bring along on patrol to drop onto or next to suspect that they had taken out so that they could say that he had threaten them. A Today you don't even need to do that; all that you have to do is justify the use of deadly force if you are a police officer is to say that you feared for your life, for whatever reason. If the victim dies, that just means there will one less witness around to contradict the test-lie.
A In the case of Officer Michael Slager of the North Charleston police, it appears he was being extra-carefulto cover his tracks. A Probably he could have gotten away with simply declaring, as he did in the radioed report, that Walter Scott "took my taser," and that would have probably have sufficed to exonerate him. A But Slager having shot Scott eight times in the back--as everyone can see in the now famous video--perhaps felt that he needed a little help explaining what he was up to. A So apparently dropped his Taser next to Scott's body, which would obviously help to make the case that Scott "Took my taster."A If you think that what happen in North Charleston is a unique case, its not. A Only recently, in another case, a policewoman in Pennsylvania first Tasered a black man then shot him twice in the back as he lay face down in the snow. A Unless honesty is rewarded more often then corruption, the police will lose credibility altogether. A I wrote a letter to President Bill Clinton in 1994 addressing this very issue, saying that honest cops have never been rewarded, and maybe there ought to be a medal for them, he wrote back but nothing change.
A If enough testi-lying is uncovered, then who is going to believe the police even when they are telling the truth?
A A Until now the shoot first fear of my life mantra has eliminated any cause for concern in the taking of life by police. A When a civilian committs a crime, every nuance is looked at, the better to "throw the book at" the suspect.
A The other day I got a letter from a journalist in Argentina who was complaining about police and judicial corruption there. A I wrote back to him, there are good cops, even where you live, but if the good cops don't want to be painted with the same broad brush as the bad cops, they need to come forward and expose the guys who are doing bad things. A Take New York City detective who was caught on camera recently abusing an Uber driver with threats and foul language, A This was truly disgusting behavior. Yet predictably enough the detective union leader, Michael Palladino, was out there making excuses for him, suggesting that, well, it was only one incident, and everyone has a bad day.
A Afterward Police Commissioner William Bratton announced he was removing the detective's shield and placing him temporarily on desk duty while an investigation is conducted . A But this man needs to be demoted to uniform at the very least, or "back in the bag" as we use to say. A Imagine what he is capable of doing under the cover of darkness if he can talk to someone like that in broad daylight. A There are plenty legitimate incidents where police believe, correctly, that their lives are in danger. A I was in a few of those situations myself during the course of my career.A But unless the police forces and society as a whole take action we're not going to be able to distinguish between the legititimate claims and made-up testimony.
A A long time ago Norman Rockwell painted a famous picture of a friendly neighborhood cop bending down to help a little boy. A For example; I could name someone who is a great athlete but a lousy human being or I could name someone who is a great human being but not a great athlete. A Heading the list is Muhammad Ali (The Greatest), Red Auerbach (NBA), Dave Bing (NBA), Lenny Moore (NFL), Bert R. Sugar (Boxing), Lee Jones (NBA), Roy Jefferson (NFL) and Harold McLinton (NFL), finding pro athletes like them today are far, few and in-between. A And that is a sad commentary when you think about the hundreds of men and women I have interviewed on Inside Sports and worked with as a youth advocate (Kids In Trouble).
Moore, LB Dave Robinson (2013 NFL Hall of Fame inductee) and WR Roy Jefferson host KIT toy party.
A Sam Jones (NBA), Lenny Moore (NFL) and Roy Jefferson (NFL) participate in KIT clothing drive for needy children at Union Station. A Bert Sugar (Boxing) receives KIT Life Time Achievement Award and Dave Bing (NBA) pays tribute to KIT Saturday Program All-Stars.I had the opportunity to hear an interview on Sirius A XM Radio (channel 126) on the Maggie Linton Show recently, her guest was NFL Washington Pro football player, wide receiver Peirre Garcon. A I have not been very impressed with todaya€™s pro athletes and their give back commitment to their family, friends and community. A He has three older sisters making him the youngest and the only one born in the United States.His father died when he was 4 years old leaving his mother to raise him and his 3 sisters alone. A My background is similar to Peirrea€™s, my mother had to raise 4 boys alone with an assist from Grandma Bell.
