Score!” That scene was repeated over and over again as she led her team to three straight college national championships, earning tournament MVP each time. Not only that, when the Olympics finally added women’s basketball in 1976, she scored the first points in competition history, and led the U.S. women to the silver medal at the Montreal games. Harris “held the distinction of being the [Olympic] team’s leading scorer and leading rebounder,” notes the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame, where she is enshrined. “Lusia Harris-Stewart was big, relentless, and dominated the painted area like no woman before her.” Despite earning her place in the hoops hall, Harris’s incredible accomplishments have largely been forgotten—even the remarkable … [Read more...] about Oscar-Shortlisted Doc ‘The Queen Of Basketball’ Tells Story Of Forgotten GOAT Of Women’s Game: “She Was Absolutely Extraordinary”

E vents have devised this sorry legacy: Bill Clinton will be recalled, with mocking irony, as the president who introduced the legal wink of “Don’t ask, don’t tell” to public policy. It seemed a clever ploy back in 1993, when the new president was dodging intense political cross fire over gays in the military. Gays will not be allowed to serve in the military, Clinton decided. But — – wink! —– we’ll look the other way. When the president attempts to cover his own behavior with an equivalent version of hypocrisy before the law, it injures all of us and creates a swamp of impossible dilemmas for the nation. Shall we give him an official pass to perjure himself on questions about his sex life? Or is Congress about to impeach a president for mere sexual infidelity? Have our public values been reduced to the contentious word games of criminal-defense lawyers? Or is America conducting a moralistic plebiscite —– thumbs up, thumbs down in the overnight polling? The dispiriting … [Read more...] about Clinton and Character

Wordle , the hit game of early 2022, is so popular that the creator of an entirely different game , also called Wordle !, is seeing a huge increase in business and is donating the proceeds of his app to charity. Steven Cravotta created an app he dubbed Wordle! when he was 18, however it has languished for the past five years. “I built an app called Wordle when I was 18 mostly for fun, to sharpen my coding skillz, and maybe make a quick buck,” Cravotta explained in a Twitter thread . “It didn’t quite take off like my previous app, Grid, did. So after a few months and ~100k total downloads, I stopped updating and promoting the app.” He went on to explain that for the past four years, his version of Wordle, a timer-based word game, has averaged one or two downloads per day.
