Both the government and boxing’s controlling bodies have made attempts to put into place a number of regulations, such as the Muhammed Ali Boxing Reform Act, aimed at minimizing major injuries in the sport. However, head injuries are still a significant concern in boxing. The American Association of Neurological Surgeons says that 90% of boxers will have sustained a brain injury by the end of their careers. Couple that with eye injuries and dementia, which are both effects of being hit in the head, and you can begin to understand why boxing is a dangerous sport…

Don’t Reward Floyd Mayweather’s Abuse

http://www.huffingtonpost.com/ron-legrand/dont-reward-floyd-mayweathers-abuse_b_7170772.html

Floyd Mayweather has a history of violence and brutality — and not just inside the ring. I’m talking about a history of battering women that spans more than 12 years. This includes seven documented assaults against five different women, some of them occurring in front of his children.

Mayweather is the highest-paid athlete in the world, which probably has something to do with the fact that he has barely been held accountable for this criminal behavior…

According to the Associated Press, Floyd Mayweather stands to make more than $180 million from this Saturday’s fight — far more than the $135 million the federal budget allocates for the Family Violence Prevention and Services Act, which provides only bare-bones funds for over 2000 domestic violence programs and shelters across the county.

Please join us by saying “no.” Don’t pay to watch an event that will reward Mayweather with even greater wealth and further endorse his criminal behavior. It’s time we all do our part to stop domestic violence.

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – While Albuquerque protesters marched in solidarity with Baltimore Wednesday afternoon, Albuquerque’s streets were a far cry from the chaos seen in Baltimore over the past few days.

A group of more than 100 marchers took to Central Avenue near the University of New Mexico, forcing Albuquerque Police Department to close the street between Girard Boulevard and Yale Boulevard for about an hour and a half.

Many held signs reading “Black Lives Matter” while others marched with signs decrying police violence. A few of those signs called for justice for Freddie Gray, the young black man whose death stemming from his time in police custody sparked the unrest in Baltimore.

“We have a system here that abuses its power and we want to change that,” said Onesimus Al-Amin with Black Men in Motion…

A New Study Says You Can Shove Your Face With Cheese To Lose Weight

Aarhus University researcher and feces collector Hanne C. Bertram has surmised that the increased consumption of fermented milk (delicious cheese) leads to increased levels of butyric acid, which causes reduced obesity and higher metabolism.

I’m no scientist or feces collector, but from what I can glean, cheese goes in, science happens, and then you lose weight.

But, just in case that’s not really [why] French people are so thin, you might want to also guzzle a bunch of wine like I just did.
