  • How did a hotel on Belle Isle get into the news — and out again?

    Michael Jackman
    22 May 2015 | 1:46 pm
    As close readers of local newspapers know very well this week, the idea of private development on Belle Isle is a contentious topic. As in, mention it, and then stand back! It’s because, time and again, people have floated plans to build private or quasi-private development on the island, ranging from a $41-million Detroit Equestrian Center and Marina proposed in the mid-1990s to a $30-million to $45-million maritime academy, dormitory, and restaurant submitted seven years ago, to a boutique hotel with several restaurants discussed just last year.… [ Read more ] [ Subscribe to the…

  • NBA draft 2015: Pistons reportedly looking to replace free agent Greg Monroe through draft

    Vincent Diringer
    22 May 2015 | 7:02 am
    There's a heavy indication that Detroit does not have high hopes in retaining free agent big man Greg Monroe. The Pistons once again find themselves in the lottery, and will have the eighth pick in the 2015 draft. However, this draft could alter Detroit's roster more than previously anticipated, with stories from MLive's David Mayo and The Detroit News' Terry Foster that Stan Van Gundy is not counting on Greg Monroe returning and looking to replace him through the draft. Could this mean the Pistons don't have faith in their ability to re-sign Monroe? Or are they angling for better depth in…
  • NBA draft 2015: Mario Hezonja goes to Pistons in Chad Ford's first mock after lottery

    Packey
    21 May 2015 | 7:55 am
    Chad Ford's Mock Draft 5.0, the first after the lottery results, has the Pistons taking a Croatian wing. On Tuesday night, it was revealed that the Pistons keep their pre-draft slot and select No. 8 overall in the upcoming 2015 NBA draft. On Wednesday, Chad Ford updated his mock draft board to reflect the slightly updated first round order. Today, in case you haven't seen it yet, I'm posting the Pistons mocked pick here for you to see and discuss. Ford mocks the Pistons to take a 6-foot-7 (or 6-foot-8 according to Draft Express) small forward from Croatia, Mario Hezonja. If you…
  • NBA rumors: Pistons may look to trade draft pick, according to Chad Ford

    ESPN’s draft guru tweets that Detroit among others may look to swap their draft pick for players who may be able to contribute immediately. After last night's NBA Draft Lottery, ESPN Insider Chad Ford tweeted a number of insights - but one particularly interesting nugget for Pistons fans: Expect the Magic, Kings, Pistons and Hornets to seriously consider trading their picks.

  • NBA draft lottery 2015 results: Pistons to pick No. 8

    Packey
    19 May 2015 | 5:48 pm
    The Pistons had a 72.4-percent chance of staying at the No. 8 spot and that's exactly where they will pick in the 2015 NBA draft. The Detroit Pistons had less than a three-percent chance to win the No. 1 overall pick and right around 10 percent to move into the Top 3. Unfortunately, the Pistons will pick where they were slotted before the night began at No. 8 overall. The Pistons haven't moved up from their pre-draft lottery slot since 2003, when they were slotted at No. 6 and wound up with the No. 2 pick. We all know how that went down -- the Pistons had a chance to get better and they did…

Using an assortment of pitches that included a curveball that didn't even register on the Comerica Park radar gun, Simon allowed two unearned runs in seven innings as the Detroit Tigers beat the Houston Astros 6-2 on Friday night. ''I think today was really good,'' Simon said.

    CHESTER, Pa.— With the last minute running off the clock, Kayla Treanor bent forward and appeared to yell at her teammates. She tapped the back of her leg three times and then a few more times seconds later. Then she twirled the stick in her hand. As the ball moved around Syracuse’s defensive zone, Treanor moved right a little bit on the white restraining line. She gave her stick one last turn as her head followed Maryland midfielder Kelly McPartland run across the field and drain the clock. “There’s nothing you can do when you’re standing on the 30,” Treanor said. “But you can…

    Syracuse lost to Maryland 10-8 in Friday night’s NCAA tournament semifinal. Despite pulling within two, the Orange were unable to trim the lead further because Maryland held the ball for the final seven minutes of the game. After the game ended, fans took to social media to discuss the lack of a shot clock in women’s lacrosse, which helped allow the Terps to hold the ball until the end of the game.

    CHESTER, Pa. — As the entire Maryland bench emptied onto the field, Syracuse defender Brenna Rainone crouched away from the rest of her teammates, staring at the ground. The Terrapins fans erupted into cheers and Orange defender Mallory Vehar slowly walked over to Rainone, wrapping her arms around her. On one end of the field, UMD players were jumping up and down in a huddle.

  • No More Body Shaming: 5 Ways to Love Yourself and Others

    A Healthier Michigan
    21 May 2015 | 12:01 pm
    Do you ever look in the mirror and focus on the parts of your body you hate? Or flip through the pages of a magazine and judge celebrities who look like they’ve let themselves go? If so, you’ve taken part in the incredibly negative act of body shaming. And it’s doing a lot of harm. Body shaming is any time you talk or think negatively about your body or someone else’s. And it seems to be happening more and more these days. For example, a fitness video creator named Cassey Ho recently posted a photo on Instagram that led to numerous mean comments about her appearance like “You…

    I know that batching recipes — preparing food in large quantities to last more than one meal — is something you might usually do in the winter or fall, but really you can batch recipes all year long. There are a lot of good reasons why you should: Menu planning and time management — I know it might seem like it takes longer to cook a larger batch of food, but that generally is only true for prep time. In the long run it will save you time. I promise. Saves money — Any time you are cooking at home and meal planning, you will always save money, especially compared to dining out.

  • Are You Touching Your Face Too Much? Probably!

    A Healthier Michigan
    19 May 2015 | 7:13 am
    There are a lot of reasons to raise your fingers to your face—you think you have something in your eye, your cheek itches, your nose has a tickle, you want to bite your nails. In fact, researchers observed people in public spaces and found that people touch their mouth or nose an average of 3.6 times an hour. Why does it matter? Because all of that face touching can be making you sick. While most people wash their hands after a trip to the bathroom, they don’t necessarily suds up every time they touch a banister, door handle or dollar bill. And the germs that are all over those items can…
