    Equality Michigan, a statewide organization that advocates for the LGBT community, is asking anyone with information about a 22-year-old transgender Warren man's whereabouts to contact the group or Warren Police. Jay Ralko, 22, who is 5 feet tall and weighs 120 pounds, was last seen December 10th while driving a charcoal gray Ford Escape, says Equality Michigan. The license plate of the vehicle is #CJK5971, it has chrome pipe running boards, and rain deflectors on the windows.  Anyone with information is asked to call Equality Michigan at 313-466-4345, or Warren Police at 586-574-4700.

    There are no actual reports that the teams are discussing a deal. But with both teams disappointing so far, they could help the other improve a weakness by trading from a source of strength. Stan Van Gundy was brought to the Detroit Pistons in to bring credibility and wins. Instead, the team is worse than ever and 2014-15 almost certainly already a lost cause. More surprisingly, the Phoenix Suns have scuffled in the first quarter of the season. Last year's 48-win darlings sit at 13-14 record and currently reside outside the playoff picture. In both Detroit and Phoenix it is a case of having…

  • This guy just shreds atop a loop of ZZ Top and it's the best thing

    My favorite recent work of appropriation-based art has to be a 12" released on April Fool's Day of this year, where Oren Ambarchi loops a few bars of ZZ Top, and then just rips a six-minute solo in a crazed, splenetic style he terms "stacte" on top of the thing. It's so ridiculous, and very fun. … [ Read more ] [ Subscribe to the comments on this story ]
  • 3rd annual Bike the Blizzard in Detroit to take place next month

    It will be a frigid outing, but Back Alley Bike's annual Bike the Blizzard ride is worth bundling up for.  Now in its third year, the 24-hour marathon bike session begins at midnight, and participating riders travel as far as they can through the wintry mess. And while it's not a ride with an entrance fee, Back Alley asks riders to raise at least $50 in pledges, with all proceeds going to support the shop's multiple community programs.  For instance, the shop holds a program for adults to teach them how to repair and maintain bikes.… [ Read more ] [ Subscribe to the comments on this story…

    Michiganders grow up consuming certain foods and beverages: Faygo, for instance, and coney dogs. But do you remember what it was like to taste these things for the first time? More importantly, do you think you'd still like them if you hadn't grown up eating them? Well, Movoto, the "fun" real estate blog, recently gathered together a few West Coasters who'd never before tried our regional eats and asked them to give 'em a go.… [ Read more ] [ Subscribe to the comments on this story ]

  • The worst kind of terrible, Greg Monroe's future and Andre Drummond's present

    It's been too long. We missed you. Join Ben and Steve as we talk about what it means to be a Pistons fan, Andre Drummond's recent resurgence, Greg Monroe's future (and trade value), and more. After a (too) long hiatus, the Detroit Bad Boys podcast is back! In this episode, Ben (brgulker) and Steve (Shinons*) discuss a long list of topics: What does it mean to be a Pistons fan after more than half a decade of losing? How long can and should the fanbase support a franchise that seems to lack a clear direction for improvement? We're losing patience, not because the team is losing, but because…
  • Is the Andre Drummond we all fell in love with finally back?

    Sean Corp
    18 Dec 2014 | 9:45 am
    After a horrible start to the year, Drummond's game is finally rounding into form. When you have the second-most losses of anyone else in the NBA, it's hard to get too excited about anything. But regardless of whether the team struggled this year, there was one thing Pistons fans could hang their hats on -- the emergence of Andre Drummond. So as the losses piled up, it was doubly crushing to see Detroit's franchise cornerstone struggle so mightily to begin the year. Drummond, who talked about taking a leadership role on the team before the season began, couldn't seem to do anything right on…
  • Pistons lose 11th straight at home, longest single season streak

    Shinons*
    18 Dec 2014 | 7:39 am
    It’s been a month and a half since the Pistons last won at home, hitting a franchise mark for ineptitude for a single season. Well it's been a season for the record books for the Pistons so far, but not the good ones. With their loss to the Dallas Mavericks last night, the Pistons dropped their 11th straight game at the Palace of Auburn Hills giving the longest single-season home losing streak in franchise history. The Pistons have a longer home losing streak that stretched across the offseason back in 1980. They lost seven games at the Pontiac Silverdome as part of a greater 14 game losing…
  • Pistons vs. Mavericks: Detroit can't stop No. 1 offense in 11th straight home defeat

    17 Dec 2014 | 9:32 pm
    The Pistons lost a single-season franchise worst 11th straight home game in giving up a season-high 117 points. The Detroit Pistons' home losing streak increased to 11 games on Wednesday night, the worst home losing streak in the history of the franchise. 117-106 losers, the Pistons got torched by Chandler "Bing me, I'm not fat" Parsons and Monta "I'm not a ball hog; see, I had 8 assists" Ellis. The two combined for almost half of the Mavericks' overall point total (57) and 23 of the team's 30 points in the third quarter in which the Mavs outscored the Pistons by eight. Similar to the game in…

  • Forward Jenkins uses adopted family to instill values on and off-court as Villanova sophomore

    20 Dec 2014 | 6:07 am
    Felicia Jenkins had to make the hardest sacrifice a mother could for the sake of her son’s future. She gave him up. At only 12 years old, Kris Jenkins left his family and home in South Carolina to live with the Britt family in Upper Marlboro, Maryland. With one of Kris’ younger sisters ill in the hospital and knowing Kris’ basketball future would be in great hands with Nathaniel Britt, Felicia gave up legal guardianship of her son in 2007. “Once we made a commitment to do it,” Nathaniel said, “We knew we were all-in and we were going to share that kind of love for (Jenkins) that…
  • Beat writers predict No. 7 Villanova to handily defeat Syracuse

    19 Dec 2014 | 9:05 pm
    Phil D’Abbraccio (7-2): Villanova 79, Syracuse 58 Zone vs. Wild Syracuse’s recent defensive struggles don’t bode well for this one. Opponents have combined for 25 3s in SU’s last three games and Louisiana Tech quieted the Carrier Dome on Sunday with a flurry of alley-oops. Villanova’s versatile offense threatens to attack in even more ways than those, and on the other end the Syracuse offense takes a step back against the Wildcats’ aggressive Top-25 defense. The Orange erased a 20-5 first-half deficit last year to beat then-No. 8 Villanova, but this time…
  • Butler’s off night proves too much for Henderson, Peterson to overcome in SU’s 74-72 loss to No. 9 Baylor

    19 Dec 2014 | 6:01 pm
    WINTER PARK, Fla. — After making just two of her first 11 shots, Brianna Butler made her way to the Syracuse bench and head coach Quentin Hillsman followed her. As Butler subbed out for the second time in the game’s first 11 minutes, Hillsman gave his small forward an earful, yelling inches from her face. When Butler finally sat, Hillsman crouched down and continued to shout at Butler as the game continued. Within moments, Butler was in tears. “That was personal. A private moment between me and her,” Hillsman said. “I didn’t get on her at all.” Despite a bad shooting performance…
  • Fondren looks to continue balanced contributions at 4 different positions against No. 9 Baylor

    Alexis Peterson leads Syracuse in scoring in a prolific first season as starting point guard. Briana Day is averaging well over a double-double and has established herself as one of the Atlantic Coast Conference’s premiere post presences. Yet despite the star power that his two most-defined players have showcased, SU head coach Quentin Hillsman says that Cornelia Fondren is the team’s most valuable player. “She’s very versatile,” Hillsman said. “She plays the one through the four for us. She plays multiple positions and has multiple skills. She does what we need her to do and…
  • Syracuse zone to face tough challenge in No. 7 Villanova

    sports
    19 Dec 2014 | 12:45 pm
    Syracuse’s 2-3 zone can be broken through the high post. It can be shot over from beyond the arc. No. 7 Villanova (10-0) gets to and scores from each area of the court better than most teams in the country. Syracuse (6-3) has to slow and stop the same Wildcats in its 1 p.m. tipoff on Saturday at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia. It’s a task that no team in the country has truly completed this year and one that looks especially difficult for the Orange. SU struggled to defend the high post and the perimeter in the first half of its narrow win over Louisiana Tech on Sunday and the…

I think the best place to start is to say thank you.  When we started this fair in 2006 none of us thought about what it was going to turn into nine years later, we just knew that the time was right in Detroit to get an indie craft fair going.   Every year has been more successful than the year before it, and it’s because of this…

    This time of year is all about peppermint—the flavor gets featured in espresso drinks, chocolate bark, candy canes and other desserts all month long. But what you may not realize is that peppermint isn’t just a tasty addition to lattes and ice cream—it’s also a superfood that can help you feel less stressed, fix an upset stomach and, as you can see below, offer loads of other benefits.

    If you were born in a year ending in six – 1966, 1976, 1986, etc. – 2015 might be your best year ever. New research finds that people who are about to enter a new decade are more likely to make big life decisions or changes, as part of a search for meaning and an arbitrary sense of the importance of round numbers. People who are 29, 39, 49, and so on, tend to view their upcoming “big” birthday as a chance for self-reflection. Not content with what they’ve accomplished, so-called “nine-enders” are more likely to buy a house, run their first marathon, go back to school,…

    Traveling for the holidays can be completely disruptive to your workout routine. You aren’t near your gym and there’s no guarantee there will be any exercise equipment where you’re staying. While you can strength train using just your body weight, cardio is a little trickier—especially if you don’t like to run.

    Jeanette was 46 when she was permanently disabled by a stroke. While blow drying her hair, she suddenly developed weakness in the left side of her face, arm and leg. Six weeks later, Jeanette was still unable to use or recognize her left arm. Herman was 80 when he had a stroke. After a routine day of canning vegetables, he sat down to watch the baseball game and abruptly became unable to speak. Two months later, Herman still spoke a confusing mix of random words and phrases. If you don’t know a stroke survivor, there’s a good chance that you will. Every year, 750,000 Americans suffer a…
