David Haye knows how to sell but must be reminded you do not play boxing | Kevin Mitchell

The heavyweight will quietly hope that pushing the promotion of bout against Tony Bellew beyond acceptable limits does not backfire on him and the sportDavid Haye would seem to be too much of an animal for some people – but not so abominable as to stop hundreds of thousands of them paying to watch him try to “cave in the skull” of Tony Bellew at the O2 Arena in London on Saturday night.In recent days, he has also said: “I’m looking at putting a combination together that really hurts him, a Tommy Morrison-Ray Mercer finish where his brain hasn’t even told his legs to fall down and I’m still hitting him as he’s upright. I’m looking at doing a real number on him, before the referee can even stop the fight, landing three or four vicious haymakers on him.” Continue reading...

The Most Unexpectedly Moving Oscar Moment Was A Watch Commercial

One of the most poignant moments of the Academy Awards each year is the “In Memoriam” tribute to those the industry has lost. But Sunday night’s ceremony featured a moving scene that was entirely accidental  ― and it took place during a commercial break. Actor Bill Paxton died on Saturday after complications from surgery. As coincidence would have it, he was also featured in a Rolex commercial celebrating film that aired during the awards show:   Jennifer Aniston also paid tribute to Paxton as she introduced the “In Memoriam” segment, which this year featured Sara Bareilles performing Joni Mitchell’s “Both Sides Now.”  But for fans of Paxton, an audience favorite who had roles in blockbuster films such as “Aliens,” Titanic” and “Apollo 13,” the Rolex ad provided an unexpectedly emotional moment: Inadvertent loaded metaphor: The late, great Bill Paxton’s fleeting appearance in a Rolex commercial about the preciousness of time.— Raza Syed (@raza) February 27, 2017 BAH! this rolex commercial has Bill Paxton in it.

David Haye insists he must beat Tony Bellew if he is to continue boxing

Former WBA champion Haye says there can be only one result in his comeback fight at the O2 Arena and predicted: ‘I can guarantee you Bellew is going to be retiring this year’Five years after David Haye said he would quit the fight game at 31, the Londoner is still making noise in the heavyweight division but he has said that this time, if he loses to Tony Bellew on Saturday night, half a mile from where he grew up, he really will walk away.There is no title at stake, but several million pounds through pay-per-view on Sky and the sold-out seats at the O2 Arena, and that – along with a large dose of mutual animus – is enough to drive the juices of two of the most charismatic fighters in their division.

Impeachable: A New Kind Of Protest Song

People have been wondering what folksinger/activists, some of them septuagenarians like Noel Paul Stookey and me, might be doing in the face of the current cataclysmic challenges to our democracy and our nation. The answer is simple: we are going to keep on keeping on. We inherited a legacy from Woody, Pete Seeger and the Weavers and many others who inspired us. They never quit, never stopped and never stopped advocating. Doing so is “in our blood” and it’s a great gift to both Noel and me, as it would be to Mary – were she still to be with us. She would join, even (or maybe especially) at our advanced age, the current advocacies that “hammer out a warning”, “ring out danger” and “sing about the love between our brothers and our sisters”.  No, we’ve not “gone away”. We, and others who also come from the folk music/activist tradition, are solidly committed to using our music to generate community and consensus at our concerts and at gatherings and demonstrations to confront the most dangerous of challenges now threatening our country. I have written, and currently perform, two songs that have come out of the presidential campaign and its results, one being The Children Are Listening and the other being, Lift Us Up.  I am grateful that, in a limited context (for sure) both of these songs have become rallying points for efforts to assert what is good in ourselves and what is reprehensible and frightening in the face of the recent election.  By far the most important effort yet, by either Noel Paul or me – in terms of its reach and, in my opinion, its brilliance – is Impeachable, a parody Noel wrote of the song Unforgettable, which was a huge hit by Nat King Cole from the early 1950s.  Impeachable was just released on the internet and went viral with, currently, over 800,000 hits.  (Please share this link with your buddies and help us spread the message.) Impeachable is an example of Noel’s extraordinary ability to write a super-funny, very surprising yet also, highly nuanced, lyric. He is, and has always been, an amazing songwriter. In its first public performance last weekend Impeachable brought the audience at our concert in Thousand Oaks, CA to its feet with a prolonged standing ovation. There were screeches of delight the likes of which I have never before heard at a Peter Paul and Mary concert. Noel has clearly struck a hugely resonant chord amongst those who heard the hammer strokes warning of a grave danger to our nation, our democracy and, in fact, the whole earth. Impeachable is a new twist on the kinds of songs that Peter Paul and Mary were singing that helped to mobilize Americans at the time of the Civil Rights Movement and the Anti-Vietnam War Movement.   Blowing In the Wind and If I Had a Hammer written by Bob Dylan and Pete Seeger & Lee Hays, respectively, were anthems that brought folks together in ways that let them recognize, in very personal ways, their collective strength as well as reassert a commonly held ethical/political perspective. Such was also the case with Where Have All the Flowers Gone and a myriad of other songs. With their repetition at rallies, marches and on the radio, these songs inspired many newcomers to the world of activism who asserted to us that our music, and that of our fellow folk musicians, became the “sound track of their political awakening”.  (In our view, this is one of the greatest compliments we ever received.) Today, of course, the dominant transmission of such advocacies comes through social media, though in-person efforts such as The Women’s March on Washington, and the demonstrations at Standing Rock that electrified the nation are still, I believe, the most powerful tools for social/political mobilization. Also, there is another new aspect to a musician’s, or an actor’s, or any artist’s efforts in the realm of advocacy. In this time, humor, as offered by the likes of John Oliver, the gifted cast and guests, such as the amazing Alec Baldwin, on Saturday Night Live, Samantha Bee, Melissa McCarthy, Stephen Colbert and Trevor Noah, to name just a few, has played a huge role in inspiring and activating the spirit of our nation. It cuts through the extreme “noise” in tweets, frightening pronouncement and actions emanating from the current administration, Please take heart my friends. From my travels, I have found that there has been a huge call to action heeded, even (and emphatically) in my and Noel’s elder demographic. Be assured that a large body of former artist-activists is mobilizing now with their songs, their poetry, their heart-rending videos, their humor and their visual work on signs and memes that spread across the internet with ever more amazing directness, humor, and determination.  As long as this continues to build, we’re walking together and gaining strength.  Let’s carry it on, my friends. In solidarity and love, Peter Impeachable By Noel Paul Stookey Impeachable, that’s what you are… Impeachable, and yet so far... You’ve avoided closer scrutiny And even though Vlad-i-mer Putin, he Opens many doors, it only makes you more... Impeachable, and when, some day We can say ‘you’re fired’ and you go away You may have thought you were unreachable (but) history makes some moments teachable: Someday Pence may be impeachable too -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Why Brian Hook Is an Empty Suit

Daniel R. DePetris Politics, Americas Brian Hook, who is being touted for a senior State Department post, is a consummate creature of Washington conventionality. Brian Hook, unlike a number of members of the Republican foreign-policy establishment and, apparently, his own wife, never said Never Trump during the campaign. But he would still be a startling choice for the Trump administration, which is apparently considering him for the post of director of the policy planning staff at the State Department. It’s a post that legendary figures such as George F. Kennan have occupied. Kennan used it to help further conceptualize and implement his new containment doctrine in the late 1940s. If Hook is given the post, however, he’s unlikely to shake up American foreign policy the way Kennan did. On the contrary; the chance of any change in the foreign-policy thinking that has held sway in Washington in recent decades is next to nil. Hook, a cofounder of the neoconservative John Hay Initiative, is a consummate creature of conventionality. His selection would be an indication that the discrepancy between the change that Trump promised during the election and his actions as president isn’t a small gap. It would be a chasm. Yet according to John Hudson of Foreign Policy magazine, Secretary of State Rex Tillerson wants Hook as a key deputy. In Hook, Trump and Tillerson would get a card-carrying member of the Republican foreign-policy establishment who is far more comfortable espousing the strengths and virtues of the NATO alliance than he is questioning its value or utility. As an integral member of the Mitt Romney–aligned Hay Initiative—a group of GOP national-security heavyweights who advised Republican presidential candidates during the election last year—Hook concentrated on ensuring that the party’s foreign policy orthodoxy remained the dominant narrative. Indeed, a cursory glance at Hook views and those of his colleagues make it abundantly clear that they aren’t fans of Trump’s “America First” policy—a term that conventional Republicans read as a return to 1940s-style isolationism.

Maxine Waters Is At It Again: Trump's Advisors With Russian Ties Are 'Scumbags'

Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Ca.) isn’t one to bite her tongue when it comes to the president and his administration. The congresswoman called members of President Donald Trump’s cabinet with alleged ties to Russia “a bunch of scumbags” who only have interests in oil, gas and money when she made an appearance on “All In With Chris Hayes” on Tuesday. Waters noted mounting special interest concerns and how she suspects some advisors’ roles are to remove sanctions that former President Barack Obama imposed on Russia.  “I just think the American people had better understand what’s going on,” she told host Chris Hayes. “This is a bunch of scumbags, that’s what they are, who are all organized around making money.” Waters pointed to Trump’s friends and cabinet members, which she referred to as the “Kremlin clan.” Hayes asked if she was referring to former Exxon CEO and current Secretary of State Rex Tillerson. “I’ll tell you this, Tillerson is there to get these sanctions lifted,” she replied. “I believe it just watch him. He’s gonna continue to work on it. This is important for him.” The California congresswoman has been outspoken about Trump’s ties to Russia since before he took oath. Waters, who boycotted Trump’s inauguration, called for an investigation into Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin relationship and the alleged hacking of the 2016 election in an interview with Tamron Hall. She called Trump a “danger” and said that she refuses to work with him. “I don’t honor him. I don’t respect him. And I don’t want to be involved with him.” It’s clear that Waters isn’t backing down from Trump without a fight.  Watch Waters’ interview with Hayes above. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Indiana Workers Beg Governor To Save Their Jobs While Trump Meets With CEOs

Gov. Eric Holcomb (R) met with leaders from the Indianapolis chapter of the United Steelworkers union, which represents workers at Carrier and Rexnord, two profitable companies that Trump has harshly criticized for closing Indianapolis factories. The Rexnord layoffs are a symbol of the failure of Trump’s force of will alone to stop companies from offshoring jobs. In the face of Trump’s criticism, Carrier changed its plans, but Rexnord didn’t. Soon, the bearings manufacturer will lay off about 300 workers. Local 1999 President Chuck Jones said he asked Holcomb if there was anything the governor could offer, such as new tax incentives, to convince the companies not to proceed with the layoffs. “They said that there wasn’t anything they could do on that, so that was not an option,” Jones said.  A Holcomb spokeswoman didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment. Last year, Trump and former Indiana Gov. Mike Pence, now the vice president, gave Carrier’s parent company, United Technologies, $7 million worth of tax breaks as part of a deal to keep Carrier’s Indianapolis furnace factory running. The agreement saved 800 jobs at the plant, though roughly 500 workers will still be let go. United Technologies may have agreed to keep the plant partly because the firm earns billions from contracts with the Defense Department; Rexnord doesn’t. United Technologies CEO Greg Hayes and other corporate bigwigs met with the president at the White House on Thursday. “Did you bring any more of those jobs back?” Trump said to Hayes, drawing laughter from the room, according to a reporter who was present.   “But one thing he did,” Trump continued. “You know, I said, you were given so much credit for that. And I heard two days ago that you’re selling way more Carrier air conditioning. People are buying Carrier because of what you did ― bringing the jobs back to Indiana. ... Thank you.” In addition to the 500 Carrier layoffs this year, United Technologies plans to fire 700 workers from a different subsidiary in Indiana.  Trump has always said he would renegotiate the North American Free Trade Agreement and other trade deals that make it profitable for companies to lay off American workers in favor of cheaper foreign labor. But he also said he would be able to save jobs by picking up a phone, using dealmaking skills he learned from his real estate career. However outlandish that may have seemed, Trump in December asked for a list of companies that have announced plans to pack up for Mexico. “I can call them myself,” Trump said to his chief of staff, in front of a reporter from Time magazine. “Five minutes apiece. They won’t be leaving. O.K.?” It’s not clear if Trump has spoken on the phone with Rexnord CEO Todd Adams. So far, the president’s only comment on the company came in a November tweet that called the firm vicious, which Jones took as a promise to stop the layoffs. Rexnord announced plans to close its Indianapolis bearings factory last fall and finalized a plant shutdown agreement with the union in December. The company didn’t immediately respond to a request for comment on Thursday. Union members at Carrier and Rexnord have been protesting their companies’ Mexico plans since last year. Carrier workers posted a video of their management informing them of the layoffs. The video received widespread attention and probably helped Carrier get on Trump’s radar. Brian Reed, who has worked for Rexnord for 24 years, said the governor seemed sincere in the meeting with union leaders on Thursday. Short of saving their jobs, Reed said workers’ representatives told Holcomb the state could send more officials to the plant to help those losing their jobs apply for Trade Adjustment Assistance, a special type of unemployment insurance for workers losing their jobs due to foreign trade. Reed said he planned to use the trade assistance benefits to enroll in machinist training. In the meantime, Rexnord workers are training their replacements, at least until layoffs begin sometime next month. Reed likened the experience to being a passenger on the Titanic. “It’s miserable,” he said. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

David Haye and Tony Bellew sell tickets but promoter Hearn calls for calm

• Haye questions Liverpool heavyweight rival’s mental state • Bellew threatens mayhem against the former two-weight world championThe notion that two competing athletes would jeopardise a major payday by misbehaving to the point of disqualification even before they traded skills would be absurd in any other arena but the boxing ring. Yet the prospect of such lunacy engulfing David Haye and Tony Bellew before they get paid to do it officially at the London O2 Arena on 4 March is real enough for the promoter, Eddie Hearn, to plead with them to calm down.Bellew, no stranger to such antics, has already said he will take a swipe at Haye if he comes within distance of the south Londoner during Monday’s pre-fight press conference in his hometown of Liverpool, then when they are in the capital for the weigh-in on Friday week.

Tony Bellew hates training but banks on it reaping rewards against David Haye

• ‘I hate camp. But it’ll pay off when I hit him in that ridiculous haircut’• ‘I am what I am. I’m just normal fellow who gets punched in face for living’Tony Bellew is suffering for his art – or so he wants David Haye to believe as their London showdown approaches. By the time the heavyweights with an abiding distaste for each other get into the London Arena ring on 4 March, there will be little left in the way of insults but, for the time being, each is playing his part in boosting interest in one of the most anticipated pay-per-view fights in Sky’s 2017 boxing calendar.When playboy Haye returned from Miami last week, he spoke a lot about his celebrity friends and insisted he had thoroughly enjoyed his sparring in the Florida sunshine.
