    The Spurs’ Greg Popovich is legendary for how he spars with reporters, but the Pistons’ new head man recently displayed a similar capability.Those who have followed the career of Stan Van Gundy have come to expect a high level of candor in his comments to the media. While Joe Dumars was often tight-lipped, Van Gundy has spoken often and openly about his hopes, plans and expectations. While it would be naïve to think that he spills the whole story about what he has in mind, he usually gives a full and thoughtful response to inquiries from the press.

  • Miguel Cabrera's recovery from ankle surgery could linger into 2015 season (Big League Stew)

    25 Oct 2014 | 2:28 am
    The Detroit Tigers season ended earlier then they'd hoped and in very disappointing fashion after they were swept by the Baltimore Orioles in the ALDS. Now their offseason is getting off to a pretty rough start too after the team learned that Miguel Cabrera will not be able to resume baseball activities for at least three months following surgery on his right ankle. Though resurgent in September, Cabrera wasn't his MVP caliber self for most of the second half of the season. His lack of production (three home runs and 16 RBIs from the All-Star break until Sept. 1) can be attributed in part to…

    The personal connections Remembrance Scholars shared this year with the victims of the Pan Am Flight 103 plane crash resonated with the scholars as they participated in the Rose Laying Ceremony on Friday. Scholar John Tummino’s aunt’s first husband, Jay Giebler, was a victim. The mother of another scholar, Sara Mileski, was friends with another victim, Jason Coker. “The fact that these students along with me, my fellow scholars, have these really profound personal connections has really made us realize how it reverberates with us.

    UPDATED: Oct. 23, 9:37 p.m. Bill Clinton stepped to the stage just after 6 p.m. on Friday and immediately fit right in with the Syracuse crowd. “I love it here,” he said of the city. “Before Hillary got that traveling job, she was your Senator. We came up to the State Fair every year. I probably consumed more Dinosaur Bar-B-Que than anyone.” Clinton spoke to a crowd of around 750 people at a hangar near Syracuse Hancock International Airport to rally support for U.S. Rep.

  • Beasley-led Clemson pass rush, hostile environment await Syracuse, Orange offensive line

    When the Syracuse offense faces a lethal defensive front in a boisterous environment at Clemson on Saturday night, it won’t be unfamiliar. Tuesday’s practice endured sound waves of the Tigers’ fight song blasting through the Carrier Dome speakers almost too loud for senior linebacker Cameron Lynch to hear himself think. On top of the noise, the Orange’s offense faced a nine-man rush in practice to further simulate what SU will line up against this weekend. “It’s one of those experiences you look forward to as a coach and as players to go in there and play in that venue,” SU head…

    I was thrilled to be able to go to ArtPrize for the first time last weekend. I’ve been really wanting to see the 3 square mile art competition, and had a fantastic, truly inspirational time in the midst of it’s final weekend. I especially loved seeing so much art & craft collide all over downtown Grand Rapids. Many of my favorites were installations using non-traditional methods and materials (not surprisingly) and that had hints (or handfuls) of craft to them as well. My favs below (and you’ll want to see all of them, click the more tag!) Reflex/ Reflects by Haase…

  • Trend Alert: Workplace Wellness Incentives that Actually Work

    A Healthier Michigan
    25 Oct 2014 | 6:40 am
    Promoting wellness at work is a wonderful idea, but it takes more than a few “Don’t forget your veggies!” posters in the cafeteria to be effective. That’s why, instead of simply encouraging employees to take the stairs instead of the elevator, nearly 90 percent of companies are using real money to incentivize workers to get in better shape. Research shows a well-designed onsite wellness program, like a personalized weight-loss program for employees or a rewards program based on progress, is very effective in keeping employees engaged and interested in improving their health. The trick…

The YMCA’s Veggie Van program brings fresh fruits and vegetables to communities who might not otherwise have access.

    Exercise is one of the healthiest things you can do for yourself at any age, but as you get older, regular exercise becomes more important than ever for your body and mind. Not only can exercise enhance your mobility and reduce your risk for many serious diseases, it can also do things like improve your sleep, boost your mood and increase your self-confidence. The National Institute on Aging recommends older Americans aim for 150 minutes of aerobic exercise, a.k.a. cardio, each week. The good news is that you don’t have to hit the gym or head outside for a long-distance run five days a…

    It happens to everyone: That moment when you’re standing in the check-out lane at the grocery store, seeing the total increase with every scan of cauliflower, oranges and pears. With an estimated 49 million Americans making grocery decisions based on cost, it’s no wonder people are more likely to reach for a 99-cent bag of chips than a $3.99 bag of apples. Just because you’re trying to keep costs low doesn’t mean you have to stop putting fruit and veggies in your cart. You have to get clever and take advantage of all the savings opportunities available to you. For example, if you’re…
