  • We're not sure if this town is big enough for that factory-sized techno club

    You've probably already heard about one Dimitri Hegemann, the "techno entrepreneur" who transformed a Berlin department store into a now-legendary nightclub, with his sights now set on doing the same in Detroit's old Fisher Body 21 plant. It's a romantic idea, filled with peace, love, and techno — exactly the kind of thing that people love to write about when writing about Detroit. But Vice is asking the tough questions nobody else is asking: Is a Berlin-style techno club what this town really needs?  "The reality is that outside of Movement festival weekend, the market for techno…

  • ACLU asks appeals court to reinstate ICP lawsuit over gang classification

    24 Nov 2014 | 12:52 pm
    Last week, the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) asked a federal appellate court to reinstate its lawsuit against the U.S. Justice Department and the FBI, which seeks to remove Juggalos, the rap duo's fans, from a list describing them as a gang. In a 44-page brief filed with the U.S. Sixth Circuit Court of Appeals, attorneys with the ACLU say the federal agencies' decision to place Juggalos on a list that defines the group as "a loosely affiliated hybrid gang" violates fans First Amendment rights. The lawsuit was tossed earlier this summer by a federal judge, who said the plaintiffs have…

  • An outsider's view on the Detroit Pistons

    Ben Quagliata
    25 Nov 2014 | 8:30 am
    A referee at my social league who hails from America gave me his candid opinion on the state of affairs in Motown. So as some of you know, I play in a league on Monday nights.  Last game I scored 14 points, all five field goals were layups, and 4-5 from FT.  Anyway, one of the referees there is an African-American gentleman who hails from the States, but where exactly I don't know.  He's in his early 30s, I believe, and he saw me wearing my Pistons cap as I was getting ready to leave after my game. This is how it went down: "Those Pistons are a mess at the moment, aren't they?" He then…
  • NBA power rankings roundup, Week 4: Pistons fall hard

    Jason Brunskowski
    25 Nov 2014 | 7:32 am
    Unlike last week when the Detroit Pistons barely moved in the media's Power Rankings, thanks to going 0-3 for the week the Pistons fall down the rankings hard. The Detroit Pistons had a chance to gauge themselves last week. They faced a bad team (Orlando Magic), a good team (Atlanta Hawks), and a very good team (Phoenix Suns). The results in the record book show 0-3, but the eye tests are a little blurry. The Pistons only lost to the Suns by two while holding them (or them holding themselves...er...I mean) to almost 20 points fewer than their season average. The Pistons lost to the Hawks by…
  • Can Detroit reach .500 by game 20?

    revken
    23 Nov 2014 | 7:48 pm
    Mo Cheeks’ Pistons were 10-10 through 20 games. Is there any chance Stan Van Gundy can lead this year’s squad to that same mark? Do you remember when? The apex of 2013-14 was a Dec. 7 road conquest of the Chicago Bulls, capping a four-game win streak that evened Detroit’s record at 10-10. While the streak began with a victory at home over Philadelphia, all of the next three wins came on the road. In fact, beating the Heat in Miami on Dec. 3 was certainly one of the highlights of the Pistons’ disappointing season. Of course, the wheels began falling off the bus soon thereafter, as the…

  • Shafer hopes to send seniors out on high note in final game

    sports
    25 Nov 2014 | 10:39 am
    For the first time since 2009, Syracuse’s regular season finale is one without hope for postseason eligibility. Each Orange team since has headed into the final game of the regular season needing one win for bowl eligibility or having already clinched it. But this year, SU’s seniors know it’ll be their last game when the Orange (3-8, 1-6 Atlantic Coast) plays Boston College (6-5, 3-4) at 12:30 p.m. Saturday in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts. “I think the biggest thing we want to do is send them off in a positive way,” Syracuse head coach Scott Shafer said in his…

    Staying true to his Ohio roots, Scott Shafer used to watch Syracuse-Boston College games growing up, since both sides often had players from his home state. “Now, being a part of it is very humbling,” Shafer said during the Atlantic Coast Conference coaches’ teleconference Wednesday morning. “In the week of Thanksgiving, I’m very thankful to be a part of such a great rivalry.” Now for the second season in a row, Shafer’s Orange (3-8, 1-6 ACC) takes on the Eagles (6-5, 3-4) to wrap up the regular season. The game is set for a 12:30 p.m. kickoff in Chestnut…

  • Tuohy builds basketball career as Loyola guard after role in story behind The Blind Side

    sports
    24 Nov 2014 | 6:23 pm
    Franz Rassman slammed on the breaks and extended his arm across Sean Tuohy Jr. in the passenger seat to protect him from a potential airbag. The two roommates and teammates on the Loyola (Maryland) men’s basketball team were on the way to Chipotle when the car came to a sudden stop at a red light. But it was all a joke. Rassman was only replicating the scene from the movie The Blind Side, when actor Quinton Aaron extends his arm to guard child actor Jae Head from an airbag when the two get into a car accident. Head portrays Tuohy Jr. in the film, which follows the story of how the Tuohy…
  • Syracuse falls out of Top 25, hopes to learn from challenging start to season

    24 Nov 2014 | 1:39 pm
    NEW YORK — Syracuse played 25 games before losing last year. That was how three players in the Orange’s current rotation started off their SU playing career. But this season’s crop of newcomers, both of which are starters, competed in just two games before experiencing their first college loss. To junior guard Trevor Cooney, that’s not necessarily a bad thing. “We’re not used to losing, especially this early in the season, but I think it was good for us to not only lose but kind of get killed,” Cooney said on Friday, a day after SU’s 14-point loss to California. “You learn…

    25 Nov 2014 | 6:52 am
    It’s been about 20 years since the Food and Drug Administration first introduced the Nutrition Facts Label that you see on most of the food you buy. And in those two decades, a lot has changed. Experts now have a better grasp on nutrition and the science behind what we eat while the population has a higher rate of heart disease and obesity. Even our use of the labels has shifted: A recent study by the USDA found that about 42 percent of adults look at nutrition info while they shop compared to just 34 percent seven years ago. So with all those changes, it’s no surprise that the label is…

  • 4 Must-Try Nontraditional Thanksgiving Dishes

    Angela Hernandez
    24 Nov 2014 | 6:35 am
    Turkey has been a staple of Thanksgiving dinner for hundreds of years, but the meals have come a long way since the 1600s when wildfowl, porridge and venison were served. Today, dishes such as cranberry sauce, green bean casserole and pumpkin pie have become traditional staples. But America is a melting pot of ethnicities, and families who celebrate Thanksgiving often infuse bits of their own culture into the meal. With Mexican and Polish roots in my heritage, both tamales and galumpkis (stuffed cabbage) are likely to make an appearance at our family’s dinner table this holiday season. If…
  • You’ll Never Guess These Surprising Causes of Childhood Obesity

    A Healthier Michigan
    22 Nov 2014 | 6:59 am
    Nearly one in three children in the U.S. are overweight or obese, a number that has tripled from just 50 years ago. As a result, there has also been an increase in health problems previously unseen in young children, like high blood pressure, high cholesterol, Type 2 diabetes and depression. Many of the causes are obvious (sugary beverages, fast food, inactivity and too much screen time are popular culprits) but others, like the ones below, are more unexpected. Not enough sleep Seven hours of shut-eye just won’t cut it for a kid. Children under two require 12 hours a night, three and four…
