Bryant kicks off hoops goodbye tour in hometown of Philly

Bryant kicks off hoops goodbye tour in hometown of Philly

Los Angeles Lakers forward Kobe Bryant talks at news conference on why he decided to announce his retirement prior to an NBA basketball game against the Indiana Pacers in Los Angeles, Sunday, Nov. 29, 2015. The Pacers won 107-103.
  
PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Kobe Bryant's farewell tour begins in the city that loves and hates him.

Bryant will play his first road game since announcing he'll retire after this season in his hometown Tuesday night against the winless Philadelphia 76ers (0-18).

The five-time NBA champion's relationship with Philly fans has been turbulent throughout his 20-year NBA career in Los Angeles. Some love him. Some hate him. Regardless, nearly everyone respects his superstar talent.

With the 76ers, Eagles and Flyers all struggling, Bryant's return was a hot topic on sports radio on Monday.

"I always enjoyed watching Kobe play and consider him one of the greatest ever, but he didn't want to play for the Sixers so I held that against him," said longtime Philadelphia sports fan John Passero. "But if the Sixers couldn't win it all, I rooted for Kobe."

No doubt, Bryant will get a rousing ovation in an arena where he's heard mostly boos over the past two decades. People don't come to watch the Sixers, who've lost an NBA record 28 straight games and are one defeat away from breaking the league record for most losses to start a season. Fans come to see marquee opponents and nobody fills the seats like Kobe.

Born in Philadelphia, Bryant spent much of his childhood living in Italy where his father, Joe Bryant, played pro basketball for several years. When his family moved back to the United States, Bryant went to Lower Merion High School, located in an affluent suburb about nine miles west of downtown Philadelphia.

He once said early in his career that he wasn't from Philly because he didn't live within the city limits. That didn't sit well with local fans.

"He was a spoiled rich kid who grew up in a fancy suburb," said Louis Manitti, a former season ticketholder. "He was never one of us. He wasn't a hard-working blue-collar guy."

Local media were critical when Bryant decided to skip college and turn pro in 1996. The Sixers had the first pick that year and chose Allen Iverson. Bryant went 13th to Charlotte, which traded him to Los Angeles. 

Bryant's dad played four seasons with the Sixers, but he declared he grew up rooting for the Lakers. Of course, Sixers fans didn't appreciate that slight.

But nothing turned fans against Bryant more than a bold statement he made during the 2001 NBA Finals when the Lakers played Philadelphia. Iverson led the Sixers to a victory on the road in Game 1 and the Lakers won Game 2. Afterward, Bryant said he wanted to come home and "cut their hearts out" by winning the series in Philadelphia. The Lakers did just that, winning three straight games to clinch the NBA championship.

"I liked Kobe until he said he wanted to rip our hearts out," said Michael Rivers, a part-time season ticketholder. "He was too cocky, too arrogant and that was too personal. Just say you want to win and that's enough."

Bryant has never apologized for that comment.

"I'm not apologizing for saying I'm going to come kick some (butt)," Bryant told reporters before a game in Philadelphia in 2012. "I'm just not going to do it. But I certainly embrace the city and I love everything that it's taught me. So, I'm deeply appreciative of it."

The folks at Bryant's former high school certainly appreciate him. Bryant often returned to Lower Merion High School when the Lakers came to Philly. He's given pep talks to the basketball team, worked out at the practice gym and also donated about $500,000 to the school. His former high school coach, Gregg Downer, said Bryant still wears his Aces shorts under his Lakers shorts.

At a dedication ceremony for the Kobe Bryant Gymnasium five years ago, Bryant told the crowd at the high school: "This is where I came from. This is where I grew up. I didn't go to college. This is my university. This is where my memories lie."

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — A pair of baby red pandas at the Philadelphia Zoo have been named after two of the city’s most famous residents: Betsy and Benjamin.

Zoo officials said Friday that the monikers, which pay homage to Betsy Ross and Benjamin Franklin, received overwhelming support in a public naming contest.

Officials say the cubs’ birth on June 26 was important for red panda conservation, since the species is considered vulnerable in the wild. The brother and sister made their public debut Nov. 18.

Protest over Chicago teen's shooting ties up retail district

Protesters make their way up North Michigan Avenue on Friday, Nov. 27, 2015, in Chicago as community activists and labor leaders hold a demonstration billed as a "march for justice" in the wake of the release of video showing an officer fatally shooting Laquan McDonald.
 

CHICAGO (AP) -- Hundreds of protesters blocked store entrances and shut down four lanes of traffic in Chicago's ritziest shopping district on Black Friday to draw attention to the 2014 police killing of a black teenager who was shot 16 times by a white officer.

Demonstrators shrugged off a cold drizzling rain to turn the traditional start of the holiday shopping season on Michigan Avenue's Magnificent Mile into a high-profile platform from which to deliver their message: The killing of 17-year-old Laquan McDonald was another example of what they say is the systemic disregard police show for the lives and rights of black people.

They chanted "16 shots! 16 shots!" and stopped traffic for blocks to express their anger over the Oct. 20, 2014, killing of McDonald and the subsequent investigation, which they say was mishandled.

Prosecutors charged the officer, Jason Van Dyke, with first-degree murder on Tuesday, hours before police released disturbing dashcam video of McDonald's death under a court order to make it public. It shows McDonald jogging down a street and then veering away from Van Dyke and another officer who emerge from a police SUV drawing their guns. Within seconds, Van Dyke begins firing. McDonald, who authorities allege was carrying a three-inch knife and was suspected of breaking into cars, spins around and falls to the pavement as Van Dyke keeps shooting.

Among the marchers Friday was 73-year-old Frank Chapman of Chicago, who said the disturbing video confirms what activists have said for years about Chicago police brutality.

"That needs to end. Too many have already died," said Chapman, whose organization, the Chicago Alliance Against Racism and Political Oppression, is pushing for an elected, civilian police accountability council.

Officers along the sidewalk formed a barrier of sorts between the protesters and stores and helped shoppers get through the doors. But protesters on the march succeeded in blocking main entrances on both sides of Michigan Avenue for more than three blocks.

Store employees directed shoppers to exit from side doors. When one person tried to get through the front door of Saks Fifth Avenue, protesters screamed at him, shouting, "Shut it down! Shut it down."

Entrances were also blocked at the Disney Store, the Apple Store, Nike, Tiffany & Co., and Neiman Marcus.

Van Dyke is being held without bond. His attorney said Van Dyke feared for his life when he fired at McDonald and that the case should be tried in an actual courtroom, not the court of public opinion.

The Rev. Michael Pfleger, a Roman Catholic priest and prominent local activist, said he thought Friday's protest would cost businesses money because the publicity surrounding it would discourage shoppers from even venturing into the area.

But shoppers still crowded the sidewalks and seemed to take the disturbance in stride. Some even snapped photos of the crowd.

"Honestly it's the cold that's likely to scare us away first," said Christopher Smithe, who was visiting from London with his girlfriend.

Several protesters were seen lying face-down on the ground in handcuffs, but a police spokeswoman said she hadn't been informed of any arrests.

With the rain and the protests, there seemed to be less foot traffic than on a normal Black Friday, said John Curran, vice president of the Magnificent Mile Association, which represents 780 businesses on North Michigan Avenue.

"The storefronts that were blocked by the demonstrators certainly had an impact on some of the businesses," he said.

All previous marches have been largely peaceful. There have been isolated clashes between police and protesters, with about 10 arrests and only a few minor reports of property damage. The police have allowed protesters to march in the middle of the street and even hold rallies in the middle of intersections, and on Thursday the department said it would handle Friday's march much the same way.

Throughout the week, protesters have expressed anger over the video of the shooting. They've also harshly criticized the department for its months-long effort to prevent the video from being released and the state's attorney's office for taking more than a year to file charges against the officer, despite having footage of the incident.

Crystal Rivers, Sexy And Beauty Power Model Online Interview-Biography 


































Crystal Rivers, Beauty Power Model
 
Crystal Rivers, independent woman model, inside interview and bio this week for Van Stone’s Magazines is a hit in the modeling industry.

Crystal Rivers, Sexy and Beautiful Black Woman Model, is a Power Model who has convinced the fashion and beauty magazine world that she can catch the attention of clients and readers with the newly designed products for which she is modeling.

With her new role as Power Model in Fashion and Beauty we the editors at the Philadelphia Front Page News-Magazine and Media Key 307 Magazine asked Crystal Rivers to sit down with us for an interview sharing with us a sort of resume example questionnaire that models can use as a draft that they can customize for creating a modeling profile bio.

Philadelphia Front Page News Magazine:  Being a female beauty model is tough as it requires all industry high standards. What is your personal standard that you are bringing to the beauty model industry for children and women?

Crystal Rivers: My personal standard Is for me to be the best that I can be.  I want to perform to the best of my ability and carry myself with dignity and respect.

PFNM:  What advice do you give so that other models work considerably hard on satisfying the fashion and beauty directors with inner beauty traits?

CR: My advice would be to follow the golden rule.  Do unto others as you would like them to do unto you.  Be empathetic and compassionate to others.  Stay humble and maintain a spiritual connection to the most high.

PFNM:  What does being a power model mean to you?

CR:  A power model means that you have a inner quality that shines through.  Because according to Van Stone the true meaning of being a beauty model is concentrating on having the lasting beauty of the inner person more than having outer beauty.

PFNM:  For you, what is the difference between being a fashion model and a beauty model?

CR:  A fashion model is more focused on outer beauty and that can be very stressful.  A beauty model is all about that natural inner glow.

PFNM:  Tell us briefly your specific attributes as a model.

CR:  Some of my attributes are, patience, kindness and versatility to say the least.

PFNM:  Tell us your favorite and most comfortable clothing style.

CR:  I am more comfortable wearing casual clothes so that I can dress up or down for different occasions.

PFNM:  If we left out any, can you tell us if you also do runway/ramp, catalog, print, showroom, product model?

CR:  I haven't ventured out onto those fields but, I am open to it when the opportunity arrives.

PFNM:  So tell us, what's your fashion or beauty firm objective with brands and their clients?

CR:  My objective is to represent the brands and clients to the best of my ability.

PFNM:  What inspired you to embark on a career in fashion?

CR:  I was inspired by my aunt's hard work in making her business successful. I wanted to make my contribution by donating my time by hosting her business events.

PFNM:  What sort of things would you like to bring to independent modeling through the platform of being a power model?

CR:  I would like to break the color barrier.

PFNM:  What is your opinion about the average designer who won’t open the modeling show with a black girl or with a black guy?

CR:  It is shameful and is doing the model industry a disservice and injustice.
PFNM:  After the slogan "black is beautiful " has gained a strong positive return with both white and black viewers of Van Stone's diversity models, how do you feel about taking it up and making it more noticeable in the media?

CR:  I feel it is a step in the right direction.

PFNM:  Now that you are involved in national and international modeling images, as the natural beauty woman you are, what do you want your fans to watch out for next?

CR:  I want my fans to watch for changes in the modeling industry which embrace all models of color.
