    It goes without saying that Detroit's Masonic Temple is a little creepy. It looms above Temple Street in a not-so-great part of town, and attached to it is a rumor or two that the place is haunted.

  • What's the most famous movie set in Michigan?

    Alaina McConnell
    22 Oct 2014 | 10:24 am
    Well, this is kind of a let down.  Apparently, the movie Michigan is best known for is American Pie, the raunchy 1990s "comedy" about two high schoolers who make it their mission to get laid on prom night. Granted, the movie's writer Adam Hertz grew up in Grand Rapids and did base parts of the film's script on time spent there. Still, we'd have thought that films such as Gran Torino, RoboCop, or even 8 Mile would have gotten honorable mention. Review the results for yourself below, or on BusinessInsider.com. … [ Read more ] [ Subscribe to the comments on this story ]

    22 Oct 2014 | 10:56 am
    Rookie will see his first action of the preaseason. Spencer Dinwiddie is going to play around 18-20 minutes in the Pistons preseason finale against the Philadelphia 76ers on Thursday, according to head coach Stan Van Gundy. Dinwiddie hasn't seen the floor so far this preseason and hasn't played in an organized basketball game since Jan. 12 as a member of the Colorado Buffaloes when he tore his ACL. The injury forced him down several draft boards and he was seen as a first-round talent who slid to the No. 38 pick and the Pistons scooped him up. While the Pistons would never put a timetable on…

    With The Starters' NBA Preview analyzing the league's worst contract, let's see where the richest Piston in franchise history fits in. If you're familiar with The Starters, the group of 4 analysts on NBATV featuring a Canadian and an Australian, you'll know they're answering "72 Burning Questions" leading into the new season.  One of the questions (No. 26 if I'm not mistaken), is the "worst contract in the league."  The general consensus was Deron Williams of the Brooklyn Nets possessing the most franchise-crippling deal in the league, with Trey suggesting Kobe Bryant.  However, JE Skeets,…

    Whenever he could, Buster Posey turned on the TV and watched the Kansas City Royals burn a hole through the AL playoffs. He understands what awaits him on Tuesday in Game 1 of the World Series at Kauffman Stadium. A test of his arm, and of his composure. “Yeah, I’d imagine,” said the Giants’ lead-by-example catcher, asked if he expects the Royals to run. “Watching them the last month or so, they’re very aggressive, they have a ton of speed and I expect them to use it.” This is not the kind of challenge the Giants faced in the 2010 World Series, when the Texas Rangers tried to…

    21 Oct 2014 | 9:26 pm
    AJ Long has packed a lot of firsts into a two-week stretch and his next one could be the most important of them all. His first college appearance yielded his first touchdown pass in a loss to then-No. 1 Florida State on Oct. 11. His first start brought his first touchdown run and collegiate win in Syracuses 30-7 blowoutof Wake Forest last weekend. Each injects a little more life into a team clawing out of early-season irrelevancy. And now Long has a chance to transformthe guarded optimism that accompanies a true freshman into a more solidified spot. SU (3-4, 1-2 Atlantic Coast) travels to No.

  • Pulliam: Republicans should propose travel visa policy instead of outright ban

    admin
    21 Oct 2014 | 9:01 pm
    The Ebola crisis has stirred up fear in lawmakers and the American public.  At least 40 members of Congress support a travel ban on the West African nations at the center of the Ebola crisis.  Politically, calling for travel bans makes sense. But rather than going to extremes, Republicans should use this opportunity to propose sensible alternatives. The Ebola crisis doesn’t call for a ban, but a change in how travel visas are given, especially to those coming from West Africa. Currently, when people who have recently been in one of the West African nations infected with Ebola arrive in…

    Student Association’s initiative to install heat lamps on campus bus stops has the potential to improve student life during winter. But in order for the heat lamps to be practical, the university must find answers and solutions for three overarching concerns during its pilot program of heat lamps next semester. The university should keep in mind the issues of being environmentally friendly, the overall cost and potential safety concerns. During the trial period, this university needs to figure out when the heat lamps will turned on and off, how they should be activated and at what…

    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.

    As apple consumers have changed their buying habits, apple farmers have changed the way they do business to stay relevant as well. For many, expanding operations to include some type of tourist hook has been the answer – think cider mills, corn mazes, hayrides, and on-site retail for starters. Stops at two West Michigan apple farms during a recent Michigan apple blogger tour, showed there’s no wrong way to draw people to your orchards, increasing name recognition and sales in the process. Standing in long lines at Robinette’s Apple Haus and Winery to secure fresh donuts and cider is a…

    You hear a lot about the health hazards of sitting at a desk all day long—that it can lead to obesity and a higher risk for serious diseases—but standing for work all day long can also be detrimental to your well-being. Many occupations, like sales, nursing, teaching, cooking and manufacturing, require you to be on your feet for hours at a time. And all that standing can do a number on your body, explaining why every year two million sick days are taken because of issues with legs and feet. As would be expected, your feet get the brunt of the problems—they can start to hurt or swell…
