Not anyone is buying Colin Cowherd as the hero crap in LaVar Ball’s villainous rant anchor

 

crap

Boston radio station WEEI performed a clip of Cowherd from his show Thursday wherein he congratulates himself for hiring Kristine Leahy as his Fox Sports co-host. Leahy had sparred with Ball, a combative trade replete with sexist undertones, the previous day over his Big Baller Brand sneaker sales.

“My theory’s always been on that is that we ought to give girls possibilities,” Cowherd said. “When I left my former employer … and I turned into paying attention to all the radio out there and it was all men. And I thought, I ultimately have real electricity on this business. And the strength goes to be to trade radio.”

But Trenni Kusnierek, an anchor for Comcast, had an exclusive take on Cowherd’s could be empowerment push, recalling how a pal of hers become misplaced inside the shuffle of Cowherd’s multimillion-dollar network transfer. Kusnierek claims her buddy Jen Lada was hired by using Cowherd’s ESPN display as the co-host but became left without an activity after he abruptly moved to Fox Sports. She called Cowherd a “mendacity sack of crap.”

“So don’t talk approximately how Fox has given you, has just given me this freedom to simply raise girls up from the lowest dredges of media,” Trenni stated. “Screw you, you pretentious a-hollow. … It’s so infuriating. If I saw him right now, I would possibly punch him in the face.”

Kusnierek also expressed frustration over Leahy’s function on “The Herd,” which she believes is limited to updates and not a great deal else.

Since Ball’s viral rant on Wednesday, Cowherd has defended his selection to have him on the display for the third time (“we preserve setting virtual information”) and to allow Leahy and Lonzo’s bombastic father cross toe to toe with little interruption.

Cowherd’s competition is that Leahy acquitted herself nicely against Ball, and there was little motive to come back to her protection. But he has had no pro

The Symbolism Behind an Anchor Tattoo and Anchor Tattoo Design

Anchor tattoos were all the rage for sailors. It was often the symbol of a very experienced sailor. Anchor tattoo designs are one of the oldest types of tattoos. However with an interest in all things retro and chic these have come back into fashion. In fact in the tattoo field as a whole retro tattoo designs have been experiencing a resurgence. These retro tattoo designs have come back to life with new more vibrant tattoo colors, designs and placements on the body. This trend originated on the west coast mostly and has even become known as west coast tattoo style.

Retro themes in tattoo designs are especially popular with the rockabilly group.

So what is the symbolism behind the anchor tattoo design? While the earliest forms of an anchor being used as a symbol harkens all the way back to the early Christians. They would often use the anchor as a hidden symbol for the cross. This was often used to show that they were Christian while escaping persecution from the Greeks.

The symbol much later became popular with sailors. This is a pretty obvious connection here being that sailor use anchors constantly in their work.

The anchor tattoo design has become a symbol for stability and a strong foundation. It can also mean a boyfriend, girlfriend or significant other in someone’s life. You see a man might get an anchor tattoo to show that his girlfriend is the stability in his life.

These have become increasingly popular for women to get and they often place them just below their collar bone on the right of left side.

So the anchor tattoo is a great tattoo with lots of symbolism and history behind it. If you are looking for something to remind you to stay grounded or want to symbolism a particularly stable or grounding relationship that you have then an anchor tattoo design might be something to look into.

Chris is an avid tattoo enthusiast, as well as an observer and writer of the tattoo scene. He has run numerous tattoo related website business in the past. However, now he provides great tattoo information in the form of articles and web pages for everyone to enjoy fre

Journey Into Cyprus by Colin Thubron

Colin

Journey Into Cyprus by Colin Thubron is nothing less than essential reading for anyone with even the slightest interest in the island. Travel writing this may be, but the book does much more than merely traverse the landscape or pass by places of interest. Crucially, Journey Into Cyprus is not just a journey ‘through’ Cyprus, since, by the end, the reader feels that the experience has provided more exposure than mere tourism, as if we ourselves have experienced these thoughts first hand.

Colin Thubron’s journey was largely on foot. It wasn’t unbroken, but it did traverse Cyprus from east to west and north to south. There are occasional trips by road, but overall the text itself communicates the slow pace of the author’s progress via its attention to illuminating detail alongside observation and reflection. The text even seems to have periods of rest written in, so delightfully does it capture those moments when the author paused by the roadside to sit on a stone and muse, reflect or read, or was waylaid by local custom in a coffee shop.

Like all good travel writing, Journey Into Cyprus constantly communicates a sense of place. The landscape unfolds via succinct observations that paint the view. But, throughout, both the visitor’s intrusion and the local’s residence remain clear, their relative status unchallenged. These are foreigner’s eyes, for sure, but they are opened at every turn by local invitation, information and hospitality.

But there is also history here. The name, Cyprus, itself derives from a word for copper, the metal whose mining formed the basis of the island’s niche in the classical global economy. Colin Thubron’s description of the copper mines – the relics and the still working – in the Troodos mountains are fascinating. If the island’s name might have derived from economic activity, it is in the sphere of religion that Cyprus makes its biggest impression, and those religions are also here within these pages, described in detail, and referred to repeatedly since their significance is on-going.

For two thousand years Cyprus followed the cult of Aphrodite. She, like the island itself, was never satisfied with just one relationship. She regularly moved on to another, with the apparently inevitable offspring from each encounter living a life of its own either as a mortal or as a god. And so it has remained with the island itself, where a culture of ancient Greece everywhere rendered modern by the presence of the Greek language, but in a version that Cypriots seem to have made entirely their own. There was a long flirtation with Rome, which produced palaces and theatres, decorated with mosaics that still adorn the excavated sites on the Paphos shoreline. A long and on-going marriage to Byzantium spawned the continuing dominance of the Orthodox Church in the island’s life. There are over five thousand churches and monasteries and they form an integral part of southern Cypriot culture and politics.

The Lusingnan period mat not be as well known, but it lasted more than three centuries and involved rule by French-speaking Knights of St John. They paused on their way home from the Holy Land after they had been kicked our after the Crusades. They ruled and taxed, but island culture and local tradition continued, almost in its own sphere and according to its own rules, in spite of their power. A short Venetian period saw the island exploited for the city state’s commercial gain. Trade routes had to be secured. And then, in 1570, the Ottomans arrived and stayed for three hundred years, changing the nature of the debate by introducing their own religion and Turkish culture. A brief British period left Cyprus with a second language, English, which to this day allows Colin Thubron and others the illusion that communication and its associated illusion of participation are easy. And now, of course, there is partition, a Turkish north and a Greek south, the constant yap across the fence mediated by United Nations for nations not united.

All this and more is in Journey Into Cyprus by Colin Thubron. But alongside the wayside reflections and the appreciation of landscape, there is a real glimpse into a culture born of history but expressed in this time and place as the author’s journey progresses. There are anecdotes, comical moments and occasional threats along the way. The only disappointment comes when, abruptly, the journey comes to its end as the author approaches the eastern extremity of the island’s tapering peninsula in the north. But then, that’s the beauty of travel. It has to be experienced for what it is and when it happens, because at its end it’s the next trip that beckons. By writing it down, however, Colin Thubr
