  • The Satanic Temple to MT: We're not atheists

    3 Jul 2015 | 9:09 am
    We're on the phone with the Satanic Temple's Jex Blackmore to learn more about the Baphomet monument that the group is expected to unveil in Detroit later this month, and in our typical way of signing off we ask if there's anything else she'd like to add. "Yeah," Blackmore says. "I have a little bone to pick with you." Uh oh.  It turns out Blackmore takes issue with our previous description of the Satanic Temple as an "atheist activist group." "We consider ourselves non-theistic Satanists," she says. "And a religious organization — that's a really important distinction that we make.… […
  • Gilbert responds to Detroit News' story with line-by-line rebuttal

    3 Jul 2015 | 6:39 am
    Just after midnight, Dan Gilbert, Quicken Loans' founder, issued a line-by-line rebuttal of The Detroit News' investigation on the company's record in Detroit, which ran this week.  The chief complaint of Gilbert (or whomever wrote these responses) appears to be the framing of the piece, saying the volume of loans Quicken Loans issued in Detroit would "drive where you rank in foreclosures." The News found the company had the fifth-highest amount of failed loans in the city among lenders.  "Without providing that information to that reader, it appears that the News is attempting to distort…
  • Here's what the Fourth would be like if Mexicans treated it like we treat Cinco De Mayo

    Lee DeVito
    3 Jul 2015 | 6:05 am
    For reasons we may never fully understand (aside from the American tendency to turn pretty much every holiday into an excuse to drink), it has become customary on Cinco de Mayo for millions of Americans to don sombreros, knock back margaritas, and eat guacamole — typically with only the haziest understanding of Mexican history. Humor website The Flama flipped the script, staging what it would be like if a group of drunk Mexicans adopted the same level of stereotyping to celebrate the Fourth of July. Then again, this seems to be more or less par for the course for most Americans' idea of an…

  • Who is Aron Baynes?

    4 Jul 2015 | 7:34 am
    In short, the next Olajuwon. As reported by the media, Aron Baynes has verbally agreed to a contract with the Detroit Pistons which will reportedly be worth as much as $20 million over three years, with a player option for the third year.  In a vacuum, the contract may seem like an overpay, but when you consider the other deals being handed out to big men (Robin Lopez is getting close to $13 million per), then it doesn't look that bad at all.  But I'm not here to try and convince you that it's a good contract, I'm here to introduce you to the newest Piston, the Big Baynger, Aron…

    Pistons get creative after striking out in free agency, trade picks to help Suns clear cap space. The Detroit Pistons have traded a 2020 second-round pick to the Phoenix Suns for small forwards Marcus Morris, Danny Granger and Reggie Bullock, according to Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo! The Pistons had enough salary cap space to absorb the contracts from the Suns without sending back players. Detroit was forced to explore alternative means to fill a big vacancy at small forward after missing out on unrestricted free agents DeMarre Carroll and Danny Green. Morris will help fill that gap and…

    Baynes will likely serve as the primary backup center in Detroit. The Detroit Pistons have reached an agreement with unrestricted free agent center Aron Baynes, previously of the San Antonio Spurs, according to Marc Stein of ESPN. It's not the sexiest free agent pickup, but after striking out on high profile targets Stan Van Gundy had to move on and address the lack of depth at the center position. Previously, Van Gundy said that he wanted to sign a developmental pick and hopefully bring back Joel Anthony to split backup center duties. Baynes has only been in the league three years, but…

    Kanisha Ffriend was a high school senior when the idea of writing a children’s book first came to mind. She was searching for creative scholarships she could apply for and came across one that challenged students to write a book highlighting an underrepresented population or group of people. There was one problem: whether or not she won the scholarship, she would not be able to keep the rights to any material she submitted to the organization. “That just didn’t sit well with me, because I knew that this — my book — had potential,” Ffriend said.

  • Top 3 Reasons You Should Be Lifting Weights to Beat Stress

    Jakhari Tolbert
    4 Jul 2015 | 7:12 am
    Weightlifting is one of the most beneficial workouts around, especially when it comes to blowing off some steam. So what is it about pumping iron that releases tension? Physical activity in general helps to release endorphins in your brain, which are chemicals that form when you are in pain or stressed as a way to counteract those negative sensations. Endorphins make you feel good, which is where the benefits of exercises such as weight lifting come in. Here are three other ways weightlifting is a great stress reducer: Kyle Hall 1) It creates a positive focus. “It allows me to focus…

Backpacking is a great summer activity that allows you to shed some extra calories and explore nature while doing so.

    2 Jul 2015 | 4:54 am
      It’s the most wonderful time of the year, and I’m not talking about the holidays. I am talking about Michigan’s summer berry season. The trees are in full bloom, the weather is warm and the berries are ready for picking! These sweet treats are not only tasty but they are healthy as well. Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan’s Wellness Coordinator Michelle Miller says the key is in the phytonutrients. “Berries help boost the immune system while protecting the body against inflammation, heart disease and cancer because of their high levels of phytonutrients,” said Miller.
