rc="//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js">

If you’re an old school New York Knick or Patrick Ewing fan you be may be familiar with the name “Aloysius”. Aloysius is the middle name of the retired Hall of Fame NBA player Patrick Ewing. The fame and war theme is derived from the original translation of Ewing’s middle name. This package includes two different pairs of sneakers in different color-ways.

The “fame” pair designed by Teyana Taylor features a gold base, black accents, and a translucent gum outsole with gold flakes. They also include an Empire State Building logo on the tongue, gold plates on the back with “NYC” on the left shoe and “33”on the right, along with lace locks with “VII” written on them (the name of Teyana Taylor’s last album).

The “war” pair designed by Fabolous features a black full grain leather base, a woven red and green ankle strap and gold across the buckle, tongue, and heel along with a gold accent. This shoe features a “Ewing Defense Regimen” logo on the tongue, gold plates on the back with “NYC” on the left shoe and “33”on the right, along with lace locks with “OG” written on them (a reminder of the Young OG moniker Fabolous has been going by lately).

Jeff Teague Injury: Updates on Hawks Star’s Ankle and Return

Point guard Jeff Teague has been a driving force behind the Atlanta Hawks’ surprising ascent to the top of the Eastern Conference this season, but the 26-year-old All Star is currently on the shelf. 

Continue for updates.


Teague Out vs. Heat With Ankle Injury

Friday, March 27

After injuring his ankle Wednesday against the Orlando Magic, Teague will sit out the Hawks’ clash with the Miami Heat Friday, according to Chris Vivlamore of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution:

Per Vivlamore, Hawks head coach Mike Budenholzer is taking a cautious approach with his star guard.

“Jeff is tender and will not play tonight,” Budenholzer said. “He is not able to go. We will just wait and see how it goes and err on the side of caution. We’ll see how he does today.”

Teague is averaging over 16 points, seven assists and two rebounds per game this season, so Atlanta will certainly have its hands full without him.

With an eight-game lead over the Cleveland Cavaliers for the top seed in the Eastern Conference, though, the Hawks can afford to play it safe.

Bill Walton’s Reddit AMA Was Exactly as Gloriously Weird as You’d Imagine

Bill Walton, proponent of milking and noted volcano enthusiast, hosted a Reddit “Ask Me Anything” session on Thursday.

If you’ve stayed abreast of Walton’s recent broadcasting remarks, you’ll know things went exactly as expected, with the former NBA All-Star-turned-sportscaster talking about his personal milking experience, his love for John Wooden and that one time he flew into an active volcano only to be chased by fighter jets.

Deadspin’s Kevin Draper caught wind of the forum. The Q&A was Walton in top, shamanistic form. Let’s take a gander at some of queries and Walton’s answers, starting with him explaining what he meant by the time he told his television audience he had been “milked”: 

Q: What is the story behind being milked?

A: It’s the most pleasurable experience in the world! When you’re on a great team and you get hot, your teammates milk you dry – they wear you out and there’s nothing like being on a great team. When you’re on a bad team and you get hot, they freeze you out because they figure they have to get theirs before the game’s over. Never forget – happiness ends when selfishness begins. I love being hot and there’s nothing in the world like being milked.

Walton said he considers himself John Wooden man for life, but played his best hoops in the NBA for Jack Ramsey:

Q: Which coach did the most to elevate your talents- John Wooden, Dr. Jack, or K.C. Jones?

A: I grew up under the umbrella of John Wooden. Every coach I had as a child was a John Wooden disciple and then I had the privilege and honor for playing for John Wooden. I played my best basketball with the Portland Trailblazers. Jack Ramsey made me the best player I ever was, and K.C. Jones, Red Auerbach, Larry Bird and the Boston Celtics, they did not just give me my career back, they gave me my life back.

How about that time Walton’s hair was aflame in the critically acclaimed box office smash Little Nicky

rc="//pagead2.googlesyndication.com/pagead/js/adsbygoogle.js">

Q: What was it like to have your hair catch on fire in Little Nicky?

A: It was easily one of the most exhilarating moments of my life and I rank that right up with the night that Adam Sandler at Neil Young’s Bridge School concert personally sang “The 7 foot man” to me and 30,000 of my closest friends.

Last, but not least, Walton expanded on his history with volcanism. He told one Redditor the spirit of his dog Cortez once navigated him through an erupting volcano. It was right after a Grateful Dead concert, and there were fighter jets scrambling everywhere.

Q: Have you ever been to a volcano when its erupting?

A: We were on tour with the Grateful Dead in Oregon. They were playing the show and they start playing Fire on the Mountain. The volcano next door, Mt. Helens, blows up. When the show was over a bunch of us raced to the airport and boarded a plane. We told people at the airport we were scientists studying atmospheric conditions and the effect of smoke and volcanic explosions on the human spirit, so the pilot was terrified, but we convinced him to fly right into the smoking crater with fire and lava everywhere. He wanted to go home but we were on a scientific mission and we kept getting closer and closer. As we were flying around inside the erupting volcano, the military jets scrambled from the local base and come up there to get us out of there. It was a real dogfight but we had the spirit of Cortez on our side. We eventually left and when we landed at the airport the pilot was most relieved as we quickly fled and went back to the rest of the tour. 

And that is how you survive an active volcano, friends.

This is just a little taste of Walton’s AMA session. I highly recommend giving it a deeper look (solar teepee recommendations are made). But until his next public appearance, we must sit and wait for Walton to crawl from his yurt and bless the world again with his cosmic philosophy on the give-and-take of healthy, team-driven milking.

 

Dan is on Twitter, trying to crowdfund money to have Walton’s brain preserved for science.

“My problem with Iggy talking about the breast implants is so when are you going to admit to your butt implants?”

Damn girl! Tell us how you really feel!

In the episode, the media personality even put up a side-by-side of the Fancy artist’s badonadonk before and after the rumored surgery.

She added:

“Ray Charles could see that your cakes are fake! Are you serious?”

Why Is Climate Denier David Koch on the Board of Top Science Museums? Letter Urges Cutting of Ties

The nation’s top museums are facing calls to cut ties with billionaire funders who profit from global warming. In an open letter, a coalition of climate scientists, museum experts and environmental groups says science and natural history museums should stop accepting money from fossil fuel corporations and individual donors like the Koch brothers. Koch Industries has extensive energy industry holdings and has funded climate denial. David Koch is a board member of both the American Museum of Natural History and the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. One of the most controversial exhibits is a Koch-backed installation at the Smithsonian that promotes the theory that humankind evolved in response to climate change. The letter is the creation of a different kind of museum — the new, mobile Natural History Museum, which seeks to “highlight the socio-political forces that shape nature.” We are joined by Beka Economopoulos, co-founder and director of the new Natural History Museum, who coordinated the letter to 330 science and natural history museums, and by James Powell, one of the scientists who signed the open letter. Powell is a geochemist, former president of the Franklin Institute and former president and director of the Los Angeles County Natural History Museum.

TRANSCRIPT:

This is a rush transcript. Copy may not be in its final form.

AMY GOODMAN: We end today’s show with a look at how the nation’s top museums are facing calls to cut ties with billionaire funders who profit from global warming. In an open letter, a coalition of climate scientists, museum experts and environmental groups say science and natural history museums should stop accepting money from fossil fuel corporations and individual donors like the Koch brothers. Koch Industries has extensive energy industry holdings and has funded climate denial. David Koch is a board member of both the American Museum of Natural History and the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History. One of the most controversial exhibits is a Koch-backed installation at the Smithsonian which promotes the theory that humankind evolved in response to climate change.

The letter sent Tuesday is the creation of a different kind of museum, the new mobile Natural History Museum, which seeks to, quote, “highlight the socio-political forces that shape nature” and “affirm the truth of science.” The letter reads, quote, “When some of the biggest contributors to climate change and funders of misinformation on climate science sponsor exhibitions in museums of science and natural history, they undermine public confidence in the validity of the institutions responsible for transmitting scientific knowledge. This corporate philanthropy comes at too high a cost,” the letter says.

Well, for more, we’re joined by two guests. Beka Economopoulos is a co-founder and director of the new mobile Natural History Museum and coordinated the letter sent from Nobel laureates and other scientists to 330 science and natural history museums. And in Santa Barbara, California, James Powell is with us, one of the scientists who signed the open letter. He is a geochemist, former president of the Franklin Institute and a former president and director of the Los Angeles County Natural History Museum. His new book is called Four Revolutions in the Earth Sciences: From Heresy to Truth. We invited the American Museum of Natural History and the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History to join us, but they have not responded.

We welcome you both to Democracy Now! James Powell, let’s begin with you. Why did you sign this letter?

JAMES POWELL: Well, thank you very much, Amy. It’s good to be with you. I signed the letter because I feel very strongly that the most fundamental obligation of science museums is to get the science right. And when you have on your board someone who has gotten the science wrong and who is a billionaire and is sitting at the table when trustee decisions are made, you at least give the appearance that your exhibit might be tainted and might not be giving the best science. And, in fact, with the Smithsonian exhibit that you talked about, I think that’s not just an appearance, but it’s actually the reality—the notion that we can evolve our way out of global warming. I like to say my grandchildren are already here; they’re present on the planet. They’re not going to evolve by the time they’re my age. What is going to happen is that the world is going to be a much more dangerous place.

AMY GOODMAN: Now, you were at the—you served at the—what was it? The Los Angeles County Natural History—the Los Angeles County Natural History Museum. You were director of it.

JAMES POWELL: Yes.

AMY GOODMAN: Museums need money. What do you tell fellow directors around the country?

JAMES POWELL: Well, that’s right. We are in a real bind. Museums do not have much money of their own. If we want to build a major exhibit, it’s going to cost millions of dollars. We have to secure that money from gifts, from someone. However, I think you have to build a firewall between the donor and the construction and ideas that go into the exhibit. And I take the Smithsonian’s word that they did that. However, if you have a major science denier, not just someone who denies it personally, but who is funding denialism with tens of millions of dollars, you don’t have to have that person sitting at the table with the exhibit designers. It is known what that person thinks. It is known what their beliefs are. So I think if you back it all the way back, you would say you shouldn’t have such a person. You shouldn’t have a science denier on the board of a science museum. It’s a contradiction in terms, and you’re just going to get in trouble, so find the money somewhere else.

AMY GOODMAN: Beka Economopoulos, talk about the group of people who have signed this letter and why you got involved.

BEKA ECONOMOPOULOS: It’s a tremendous list of dozens of the world’s most prominent scientists, including several Nobel laureates who have signed this letter. We initiated it as the Natural History Museum, our own Natural History Museum that just launched this fall, because we were very concerned that energy companies and the Koch brothers gain social license and cultural capital from an association with these scientific institutions, while they bankroll climate science disinformation and efforts to block action on climate change.

AMY GOODMAN: So what are you doing now?

BEKA ECONOMOPOULOS: So we’re calling on the museum sector—in particular, museums of science and natural history—to cut ties to the fossil fuel industry. That means, one, dismiss climate deniers and oil billionaires from your boards; two, cancel fossil fuel industry sponsorships; and, three, divest from your financial holdings in the fossil fuel industry.

AMY GOODMAN: And what has been the response of museums?

BEKA ECONOMOPOULOS: So far, no comment from the largest museums that we’ve called out for having David Koch on their board. However, we’ll say that there’s been a lot of traction within the overall museum sector. The American Alliance of Museums, which is a consortium of all the country’s—or most of the country’s museums, has blogged about this. We’re going to be joining their convention in a few weeks’ time. It’s the world’s largest museum convention. We’ll be exhibiting as the Natural History Museum. And we invite museum professionals who are sympathetic to this effort to get in touch with us. We’d love to hear from you, especially if you work at the New York and D.C. natural history museums.

AMY GOODMAN: Why target museums?

BEKA ECONOMOPOULOS: You know, there are more museums in the United States than Starbucks and McDonald’s combined. The museum sector represents vital societal infrastructure. They are so relevant for conveying information, for educating the youth and the public. And people have a tremendous amount of faith in the validity of these institutions. And when museums accept these contributions, it undermines the trust that the public place in them. And that, in turn, undermines a trust and faith in science, in general. And so, you know, museums hedge to this notion of authoritative neutrality, as if neutrality were even a thing. Howard Zinn said you can’t be neutral on a moving train. So, fossil fuel companies are driving this train off the end of the Earth. And we don’t have the luxury of time here, so we’re asking museums to, yes, to take a stand, absolutely, to re-evaluate their roles in a time of profound environmental disruption and climate crisis.

AMY GOODMAN: James Powell, it’s not only talking about not having fossil fuel industry fund exhibits, but also calling for these large institutions to divest. There’s a student divestment movement across the country getting institutions to—their educational institutions to divest from the fossil fuel industry. Can you comment on it in the museum world?

JAMES POWELL: Yes, I can. And I was also a college president during the debates over divestment from South African-related stock. If you own stock in a company, you do that because you believe that company is going to succeed, and you’re going to make a profit. You are then a partner with that company. And the way the fossil fuel companies make profits is if they sell more fossil fuels, which produces more carbon dioxide, which makes the train move a little faster, to use Beka’s analogy. So, I’m a very strong believer that colleges, universities and museums should not be invested in fossil fuel companies. It’s not even a good investment, if you look at the future, because the reserves of these companies, which are a major part of their valuation, at some point we’re going to decide these can’t come out of the ground, they have to stay there. And if those companies have not adapted by going to some other form of renewable energy, then—

AMY GOODMAN: James Powell, I want to thank you for being with us.

JAMES POWELL: Yes.

AMY GOODMAN: We have to end it there—former president of Reed College and Franklin & Marshall and former president of the Franklin Institute and former director of the Los Angeles County Museum—Natural History Museum. And thank you so much to Beka Economopoulos.

BEKA ECONOMOPOULOS: And please, folks, go to TheNaturalHistoryMuseum.org.

JAMES POWELL: Thank you. Thank you.
