    Rick Barnes was there. And Mike Montgomery and Bobby Cremins. Each one of them had a Final Four appearance on his record. Gary Williams and Jim Harrick both had NCAA championship rings. Steve Lavin, the UCLA coach, came up from SoCal. ESPN’s Jay Bilas made the trip all the way from North Carolina. Where were they? A thousand miles from everywhere, if we’re going to be honest. Mark Few had been head coach at Gonzaga just four years at that point. Gonzaga was a nice little story in the world of college basketball. It was the mid-major program that had stunned everyone to reach the Elite Eight in 1999 and then, despite the departure of head coach Dan Monson for Minnesota, followed that up with a couple of Sweet 16s. People knew who Gonzaga was now, but in September 2003, they did not know what it would become. Only Few imagined...
    Author: Alo.rs/Sputnjik/NA Date and time: 28.03.2021. 22:40 The fall of Python signifies that we are in an era of great change. Yeltsin and Biden, photo: description The United States is a dominant force in the context of seeking solutions to regulate international relations. But these processes will be explained by the design of Western domination and ideological metrics in the context of process management. Everyone goes their own way. Berlin, August 1994 – The Soviet Union is no more, and the rest of the Russian army leaves the territory of former East Germany half a century later. A new security framework has been established globally. Nothing describes this process other than the behavior of Boris Yeltsin that day. He stumbled on stage, then read a little, sang a little, stumbled as he walked, and forgot the last name of President Cola in his welcome...
    Prince Charles and Camilla, Duchess of Cornwall have shared a sweet image from their garden at Highgrove  to celebrate the first day of spring.

Every suggestion had to be considered. Gonzaga couldn’t afford to do business as usual. In 1998, Gonzaga couldn’t afford much. The small school in Spokane, Wash., was getting smaller, suffering a 33 percent decline in undergraduate enrollment that decade. Deficits rose sharply, resulting in unavoidable layoffs.  “We hit a crisis financially,” said longtime athletic director Mike Roth. “The decision was made to open the books of the whole university and find out where we can slash and survive. Athletically, we were who we were at the time, and a huge target.” Basketball didn’t define the school then. Until 1994, Gonzaga never reached...
    MESA, Ariz. — Count Mark Canha as one of a handful of hitters who struggled without access to film in-game last season. So this year, the 32-year-old outfielder is taking more of a holistic approach to his swing — deciding to avoid looking at film of his swing for the entire offseason as somewhat of a cleanse. The rule to prohibit players from watching film in game was instituted last season in the revised rule book as a part of the social distancing practices. But it also could stay in place when things return to normal as a restriction to prevent another Houston Astros sign-stealing scandal. Chicago Cubs’ Javier Baez attributed his dismal 2020 season to not having access to film like he used to. Canha admitted lack of film access threw him off last season, too. “I didn’t have a whole lot of success at the...
    WASHINGTON (AP) — Joe Biden is a month into his presidency and at least one pattern is clear. He doesn’t want to talk about the “the former guy.” That guy is Donald Trump. But if Biden is reluctant to say Trump’s name too much, a lot of what he has been doing has been in direct contrast to his predecessor’s legacy. On policy, symbolism and style, from the Earth’s climate to what’s not on his desk (Trump’s button to summon a Diet Coke), Biden has been purging Trumpism however he can in an opening stretch that is wholly unlike the turmoil and trouble of his predecessor’s first month. The test for Biden is whether his stylistic changes will be matched by policies that deliver a marked improvement from Trump, and a month is not long enough to measure that. Further, the length of Biden’s honeymoon is likely to be brief...
    By JONATHAN LEMIRE and CALVIN WOODWARD, Associated Press WASHINGTON (AP) — When Joe Biden walked into the Oval Office for the first time as president a month ago, his pens were ready. Already. Lining a fine wooden box, they bore the presidential seal and an imprint of his signature, a micro-mission accomplished in advance of his swearing-in. Four years ago, pens were just one more little drama in Donald Trump's White House. The gold-plated signature pens he favored had to be placed on rush order in his opening days. Over time, he came to favor Sharpies over the government-issued pens. On matters far more profound than a pen, Biden is out to demonstrate that the days of a seat-of-the-pants presidency are over. He wants to show that the inflationary cycle of outrage can be contained. That things can get done by the book. That the new guy can erase the...

The surprise second body of work from the singer and songwriter has amassed half a billion worldwide streams as well.

    AS MARK* clutched his wife’s hand and encouraged her to keep breathing, he felt like he was on cloud nine. Although the US bloke had also been by Anna’s* side for the birth of their three daughters, something about this time felt different. 2A dad discovered that his wife was having an affair after 'their' baby was born blackCredit: Getty Images - Getty That was because, after 36 long years, Mark’s dream of having a son was about to finally come true. Or so he thought … “As soon as the baby was born, it was very clear that I was not the father. He was clearly black,” Mark wrote on Reddit. “I was absolutely shocked, not only I discovered that the child I was expecting so much was not mine – but I also discovered that Anna had been unfaithful.” Heartbreakingly, until that point, Mark had never imagined that...

    Sacha Baron Cohen. Amazon Prime In the first interview of its kind, director Jason Woliner revealed behind-the-scenes secrets to filming "Borat 2." He told Insider that from the very first script he read, the plan was to get Rudy Giuliani. Woliner also talked about how he tried to talk Sacha Baron Cohen out of making a "Borat" sequel the first time they met for fear of it tarnishing the legacy of the original. The director revealed some of the secrets behind the making of the movie, like the website they created for conservatives Jim & Jerry to find that would lead Borat to Tutar at the gun rally. He also said that the CPAC scene was shot with iPhones and DSLR cameras and that after the event the secret service looked through their footage to make sure they weren't a threat. The Tom Hanks cameo was a one-day...

    A pair of remote control race cars will land on the Moon next year for the first ever race across the lunar surface - and they will be driven by high school students. Moon Mark, an entertainment and education company, is sponsoring the race that will see teams of students compete to design and drive one of two racers.  The winning teams will then work with McLaren P1 designer Frank Stephenson to create a vehicle that will race across the low-gravity environment of the Moon.  They will be launched to the Moon on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket in October 2021 and descend to the surface inside the first privately developed lunar lander.

    El Día de los Muertos is still weeks away, but during these strange times, losses are constantly with us. Every day feels like it could be Day of the Dead. And this weekend, you'll have two special opportunities to not only remember what you've lost, but celebrate the spirit of healing and resilience. The first opens today, October 9, at the History Colorado Center, 1200 Broadway, where History Colorado and the Chicano Humanities and Arts Council have partnered on a community ofrenda. Anyone can visit this community altar, leave a tribute to a loved one, perhaps create a paper flower to add to the display. Educator Arlette Lucero organized the project, which features work by artists Cal Duran and Mark Martinez Luna. "Día de los Muertos is a valuable opportunity for us to come together to honor and remember our loved ones who came before us. It also exemplifies...
    At the outset of the COVID-19 pandemic, some experts expected sky-high home prices in Denver to finally fall. But so far, such predictions have resolutely failed to come true. In August, the average home price in the Mile High City blew past $600,000 for the first time. While that mark wasn't quite eclipsed in September, the situation definitely hasn't improved. According to the latest market trends report from the Denver Metro Association of Realtors, house hunters are facing "the toughest market to buy a home in metro Denver's history." The reason, once again, is demand that is far outstripping supply. DMAR notes that the 5,301 active listings at the end of last month represented the lowest inventory for any September on record by 2,215 properties.

    Colfax Avenue, the country's longest main street that was also the legendary Route 40, has seen a lot of businesses come and go during its lengthy history, and another one just hit a major roadblock: Route 40, the restaurant that replaced the Goods at 2550 East Colfax Avenue, has shut its doors...for now. "It just didn’t make sense to stay open daily with the cold weather coming," says Charlie Woolley, the developer who turned the old Bonfils Theatre into the Lowenstein Complex, which also holds Twist & Shout and a Tattered Cover. "The restaurant will do events and pop-ups to stay in front of their customers." Route 40 just opened at the end of June; it was a revisioning of the Goods, which Mark Whistler had run since 2016. (Before that, the U Baron Group operated The Good Son there; Paul Reilly's Encore was the first restaurant in the space,...
    THEY'RE shopping for central defenders, but the answer to Arsenal's problems might be closer to home than they think.

    Only the quick thinking of the first mate saved John Howland when a towering wave swept him from the ship’s deck. The young seaman managed to grab a halyard as he plunged into the sea, but it wasn’t enough to stop him being dragged underwater and smashed against the side of the ship. Just as Howland’s lungs were bursting and it seemed all over for him, the first mate grasped the end of the rope and pulled him to safety with the aid of a boathook. The Pilgrim Fathers landed on Plymouth Rock in 1620 after more than 90 days at sea The lucky lad was bundled into the hold, where he lay bruised and bleeding, his skin shredded by the barnacles on the hull. Howland’s battered body was a reminder — if one were needed — of how perilous life was for the voyagers, who had cowered below...
    Most of us have had to help our elderly parents navigate modern technology to keep in touch during lockdown - and the Princess Royal is no exception. When the 94-year-old Queen took part in her first pubic video call last month to support the nation's carers, it was Princess Anne who assisted her mother on Zoom. In a sneak preview of an upcoming ITV documentary to mark the royal's 70th birthday, Anne asks Her Majesty: 'Can you see everybody? You should have six people on your screen.' When the Queen replies: 'Yes, well I can see four anyway,' the princess is quick to remark: 'Actually, you don't need me. You know what I look like!' The amusing clip, shared on Twitter by ITV News Royal Editor Chris Ship this evening, has left royal fans praising Anne for her humorous antics.  NEW: A first look behind the scenes of those royal video calls
