My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising Review

My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising opens in theaters across North America on February 26.

[poilib element=”accentDivider”]

Movies for hit anime series like My Hero Academia have a difficult balancing act to pull off: they must be mostly understandable for a completely new viewer, still offer something relevant and interesting to fans of the show, and be exciting but find a way to not have any significant lasting impact on the show. My Hero Academia: Heroes Rising is animation studio Bones’ second attempt at achieving all three, and it does an excellent job. Heroes Rising is just one awesome explosion of action after another. It doesn’t quite nail the landing on its biggest moment and the villain is a bit boring, but that doesn’t take too much away from the excitement of seeing the entirety of Class 1-A push themselves to their limits.

Heroes Rising takes place sometime during Season 4, although the chronology is never established. Heroes like Rock Lock appear, the League of Villains are still up to no good, and a certain pivotal item from Season 4 makes an appearance. That being said, Heroes Rising is a prime example of effortlessly utilizing information from the show’s past to contextualize the events of the movie. Flashbacks are mostly used at unobtrusive moments and important information is naturally written into conversations. If you’re not caught up with at least the beginning of Season 4, you do run the risk of some mild thematic spoilers, but a majority of the movie smartly distances itself from current events in the anime series.

Much like the first My Hero Academia movie, Two Heroes, the students of U.A. High School’s Class 1-A find themselves busy on a faraway island in Heroes Rising. The resident hero has retired, and in an effort to give some of U.A.’s top students’ additional training, they’ve been sent to fill in for the recent retiree without the supervision of any pro heroes. That last part is a bit questionable, given they’re only high school students tasked with running a hero business without supervision, but the setup works wonderfully and gives them space to shine when villains eventually attack.

[widget path=”global/article/imagegallery” parameters=”albumSlug=the-best-anime-of-the-decade-2010-2019&captions=true”]

As the series has progressed, we’ve understandably seen less of Class 1-A and Heroes Rising excitingly amends that. Everyone, even characters like Koda and Shoji, gets a chance to shine. While the nature of their work on the island is mundane, it’s still exciting to watch because of Class 1-A’s fun personalities and the creative ways we get to see them use their quirks. From helping an old woman who threw out her back to organizing an intense assault on a foe while evacuating townspeople, Heroes Rising is a great showcase of their current abilities.

New supporting characters Mahoro and Katsuma are two cute kids who stir up the long-running theme of questioning what it means to be a hero in a world where that revered title is just another profession. Heroes Rising doesn’t dig too deep into it, but that theme serves as a good frame for when Deku and Bakugo get their time in the spotlight together. Heroes Rising is ultimately about their relationship and their own valid but different brands of heroism, but again, it does a fantastic job of balancing their screen time with the other 1-A students. Part of that comes about because they’re still students, and standing up against the four new adult villains in Heroes Rising isn’t a simple feat. My Hero Academia’s practicality with the students’ general disadvantage against experienced villains has always been one of its strengths, and it’s good to see that mostly carry through in Heroes Rising.

[ignvideo width=610 height=374 url=https://www.ign.com/videos/2020/02/18/my-hero-academia-heroes-rising-official-movie-trailer-english-dub]

The villains Class 1-A go up against in this action-packed movie have bland motivations, but their run-of-the-mill brand of evil largely works here. Fights aren’t bogged down with monologues and are instead peppered with effective villainous quips. The villains’ quirks aren’t exactly counters to the students’ but their raw power and flashiness go a long way. And, since the students are on this island without support from professionals, we really get to see their tactics and teamwork shine. The animation in the fights is generally excellent, save for some awkward CG clouds that roll in every now and then.

For all the power and fun Heroes Rising brings, it’s a shame it fumbles the presentation of its biggest moment. The insane, well-animated final fight edges close to fever dream territory and is presented with odd, sentimental music that doesn’t fit the intensity of what’s happening on-screen. Certain moments of the battle — which is one hell of a fight to watch — also have serious implications for My Hero Academia canon, and the way Heroes Rising goes about brushing them aside isn’t quite satisfactory.

My Hero Academia Season 4, Episode 19 Review

With a title like this week’s, we could only assume that we were in for the very best episode in what’s left of Season 4. And while that can’t be said for certain just yet, it’s definitely an incredibly fun episode, and one that offers some well-balanced excitement with tight character focus.

My Hero Academia has perfected the art of balancing several disparate tones and atmospheres across its story, its characters, and even its aesthetics. And being able to expertly pull off the joyous atmosphere of the School Festival after such a gruelling battle with Overhaul is pretty impressive storytelling. Even more than that, introducing the camp and hilarious villains Gentle Criminal and La Brava now, during the School Festival, shows a degree of self-awareness that allows us as an audience to fully immerse ourselves in the light, celebratory atmosphere that this arc is throwing at us.

Watch the English dub trailer for the new MHA movie, Heroes Rising:

[ignvideo url=”https://www.ign.com/videos/2020/02/18/my-hero-academia-heroes-rising-official-movie-trailer-english-dub”]

Bakugo has become a personal best boy for a lot of My Hero Academia fans, and he certainly works for that status in the first half of this episode. Class 1-A has decided on a musical performance for their role in the School Festival, with Jiro the multi-instrumentalist taking center stage, so to speak. But as she attempts to build the band, she first needs to find a drummer. What she finds is Bakugo.

Now, while the drums are certainly a perfect fit for Bakugo’s rage-fuelled personality, and there’s a simple joy to be found in seeing him hammer out a short groove, the real beauty of this scene comes from seeing how Bakugo’s perspective and motivation have matured and shifted over time. Bakugo is a complex angry young man, and we’re seeing here that his anger has layers, that his waters run far deeper than we ever expected when we met him back in Season 1. Bakugo has very slowly and carefully been built up and torn down over time, resulting in a potential hero who isn’t just a controversial choice for best boy of Class 1-A, but who is genuinely a complex and lovable hero with a lot about him to respect and admire. And we get all of this distilled down into one fantastic little monologue from Bakugo after he picks up the sticks.

The preparation for the School Festival does, indeed, turn out to be an awful lot of fun as the students plan how to best use their own skills, knowledge, quirks, and imagination to build an exciting musical performance. It’s reminiscent of the movie School of Rock, with Jack Black finding a role for every member of the class, on and off the stage. That planning and preparation is even more hilarious and ridiculous here, with the brilliant idea of turning Aoyama into a twinkling disco ball.

The bulk of this episode is the sorting of roles for the festival, but the crowning moment of the entire episode is one in which Mineta attempts to play the guitar, only to lament in a pseudo-fourth-wall-break, “Because of my character design, my hands won’t reach!” It’s a real laugh-out-loud moment and not only is it the kind of joke that My Hero Academia doesn’t usually make, but it might also be the first time Mineta has been anything less than dreadful.

Class 1-A of My Hero Academia is such an eclectic bunch of well-defined individuals, which means the manga and the show can, whenever they desire, build an arc that doesn’t focus around Deku and his growth as a character, which is typical of almost every shonen battle anime. This cast is almost equal in terms of how well we know and love each character. Rarely (in any medium) do we get such a large and likable cast of characters, and this School Festival is already proving to be a welcome chance to enjoy each and every one of them in top form.

That being said, this episode’s third act still provides us with some really gratifying one-on-one teacher/student time with Deku and All Might. It’s a bonding moment but, even more importantly, it’s a short step away from the School Festival where we get to see a little bit of combat growth from Deku. After all, he and All Might are still our main protagonists, and getting a little focus time on them is not only appreciated, but satisfying.

My Hero Academia: Season 4, Episode 18 Review

This review contains spoilers for My Hero Academia Season 4, episode 18, “School Festival,” aka episode 81 overall. To refresh your memory of where we left off, check out our review of MHA Season 4, episode 17.

[poilib element=”accentDivider”]

Back in Season 2, My Hero Academia confidently proved it had the chops to inject new life and excitement into the tired shonen tradition of the ‘tournament arc’. The UA Sports Festival turned out to be one of the show’s highlights, and was, arguably, the arc that allowed My Hero Academia to flex its muscles and show that it is one of the best shonen anime to ever grace our screens. And now, as we enter the final stretch of Season 4, we are treated to a whole new, vibrant, and fun-filled arc: the School Festival.

This episode is split into three acts: the first is the announcement and planning of the School Festival, the second is a sweet extended scene between Midoriya, Mirio, and Eri. The third is a villain-related final act that’s too good to spoil here. Every one of these acts is tonally perfect, full of color and vibrancy, and feels custom-designed to cheer fans up. This is the kind of episode to be re-watched on a rainy Sunday afternoon, so bursting at the seams is it with cheery melodies, optimistic and enthusiastic characters, and excitement for things to come. Everything is on the up; the whole episode is about the clouds clearing and the sun coming out.

After an impactful and emotionally draining arc that ended with the most explosive conclusion we’ve seen so far in My Hero Academia, followed by two episodes that were marred with issues of theme, tone, and pacing (amongst other issues), it feels so good to have an episode not only deliver on hype, humor, and happiness, but to also do so by nailing every aspect of its execution, from its animation to its writing and voice acting.

[ignvideo url=”https://www.ign.com/videos/2020/01/03/top-10-most-anticipated-anime-of-2020″]

The music of this episode is especially outstanding, with experimental blends of guitar-led rock riffs and choir-infused classical pieces. One particular track late in the episode begins with a jaunty acoustic strum, is injected with a groovy bass line, and suddenly a flood of synths and strings enter the fray to make for one of the sweetest melodies ever heard in the show’s history. All of this stellar music doesn’t just add to the bright fun factor of the episode, but also provides some gravity to the surprising emotional range on display here.

In the most exciting moments, as members of Class 1-A throw out their ideas for the School Festival, and in the most uplifting and inspiring, like when Kyoka is encouraged to talk about and be proud of her passion for music, the accompanying tracks are always outstanding. In an episode so centered around song and dance, it only makes sense to have the music be as good as it can be, but it really is phenomenal here, and does a lot to elevate the already electric atmosphere of the episode to new heights.

[widget path=”global/article/imagegallery” parameters=”albumSlug=the-best-anime-of-the-decade-2010-2019&captions=true”]

Beyond the music and the emphasis on jolly festivities, “School Festival” still manages to give us some excellent character-focused moments filled with insight, growth, and introspection, with Eri and Kyoka taking center stage. In the first act Class 1-A are given the good news by a grumpy Aizawa that they’ll be hosting the School Festival; following this comes a machine-gunning of hilarious one-liners and pitch-perfect banter, with Mineta getting satisfyingly strung up as the punchline. But the character focus comes in the form of Kyoka’s relationship with her passion for music which she convinces herself has no place at school or in the hero business. It’s touching and humanizing, made even better by a few choice moments shared between her and Kaminari that prove to be suitably brief but sweetly touching.

Having more face time with Eri is hugely appreciated as well. So much of her character until now has been defined by her relationship with Overhaul, and the impact of that relationship is both seen and felt here. The way in which the show implies her PTSD is affecting and brutal, and yet she has also been rounded out and provided solid dimension that we’re only going to see grow from here.

My Hero Academia: Season 4, Episode 17 Review

This review contains spoilers for My Hero Academia Season 4, episode 17, “Relief for License Trainees,” aka episode 80 overall. To refresh your memory of where we left off, check out our review of MHA Season 4, episode 16.

[poilib element=”accentDivider”]

“Relief for License Trainees” begins with the explanation of a fascinating concept: the quirk singularity doomsday theory. Seiji Shishikura explains that quirks are mixing more and more as the generations pass, and that each generation is producing stronger and more uncontrollable quirks. Right off the bat, this is a deeply intriguing idea that shows just how invested My Hero Academia is in its own world, with one eye on the future. Horikoshi has created this superhero-filled world and now we have to wonder where their society is heading. Opening the episode with an engaging idea like this is really enthralling.

The rest of the episode’s first half is a little more awkward, however. At the end of Episode 16, our heroes-in-training were faced with the challenge of handling a group of renegade kids with impressive quirks. In Episode 17, this is handled fairly effortlessly with an excessively ham-fisted moral being demonstrated and spelled out for us. It’s a moral worth considering, and one that definitely reflects the necessary rounding out of our young heroes, but it’s also something that has been implied already, and something that feels like it is coming far too loudly and far too late in the series.

There’s also the broader narrative issue that the ringleader of this group of misfit children is far too quickly subdued by a Bakugo who quickly passes on what he has learned. In Episode 16, this scheming child showed some real intrigue, but is very quickly calmed because Bakugo reached out to him earnestly enough to immediately change the boy’s entire perspective. It’s rushed. But, then again, given how the previous episode had such issues with its pacing and tone, perhaps this is a good thing.

The outcome of all of this is still, ultimately, a worthwhile and satisfying one: a softening of both Endeavour and Bakugo; two hot-headed characters learning the value of considering and understanding perspective. In a touching scene between Endeavour and Todoroki, it feels like all of this awkward ham-fisting of the episode’s themes and morals was very much worth it in the end.

[ignvideo url=”https://www.ign.com/videos/2020/01/03/top-10-most-anticipated-anime-of-2020″]

As for the episode’s second half, it quickly catches us up with the rest of Class 1-A, as well as Eri, with a slideshow of stills narrated by Deku. It’s simple, but serviceable. From there, the focus is on the relationship between Midoriya and Aoyama; a relationship which, as Deku himself points out, has not existed until this point.

Honestly, the way that the episode tells and frames their story is so hilarious and endearing that it almost completely washes away the awkwardness that plagued the episode’s first half. This portion of the episode is so perfectly paced, and written with such care and well-timed comedy, that it boasts the quality and entertainment value of an entire episode.

[widget path=”global/article/imagegallery” parameters=”albumSlug=the-best-anime-of-the-decade-2010-2019&captions=true”]

Aoyama has been an intriguing and consistently hilarious character from day one, and it’s great to see him get a little of the spotlight here. Until now, he’s been on par with Mineta as Class 1-A’s comic relief. But while Mineta is completely insufferable and enraging, Aoyama is intensely endearing, and this episode shows us exactly why while also building on his character in a very satisfying way.

It’s also a joy to see Class 1-A return to the swing of studying and bantering together. One of the show’s best aspects is its character interactions; every member of Class 1-A is uniquely crafted as a fully formed character, and when we see them laughing together and butting heads, the show is at its most charming. We get to see that here for the first time in a while, and it paints the sweetest picture as a backdrop for the building of Midoriya and Aoyama’s relationship.

My Hero Academia: Season 4, Episode 9 Review

Picking up exactly where Episode 8 left off, Season 4 Episode 9 – “Red Riot” – opens on Amajiki standing over his beaten enemies before walking away and collapsing. This first short scene is a bit of a tonal mix: it’s nice to have a fluid continuity from one episode to the next, to keep the mood and the momentum going. It’s also a little jarring in a very shounen way – having an episode provide a definitive intro is always more satisfying for the audience than just picking up again almost mid-sentence.

After this and one more slow scene – one which awkwardly blends hand-drawn animation with CGI scenery repeated ad nauseum – the episode kicks into gear with a brawl that’s accompanied by a soundtrack of awesome piano/synth fusion. Two minor villains, Rappa and Tengai, go toe-to-toe with Fat Gum and Red Riot in a clash which one of the villains – Tengai – describes as a spear and a shield versus two shields.

Carol Burnett Is A Feminist Hero Whether She Knows It Or Not

Carol Burnett is a bonafide feminist hero. She rose up at the helm of her own variety show decades before the question of whether women are funny was somehow a thing. While her brand of humor never contained explicitly activist messages, the very fact of her presence during the women’s lib movement, of performing each night as the first female host of a comedy variety show, was a feminist act — whether she realizes it or not.

“You know, Carol, variety is a man’s game,” CBS told her at the time, trying to talk her out of creating what would become “The Carol Burnett Show.” She didn’t listen to them, of course; she just did what she wanted to do.

As Burnett tells it, her contract stipulating guest appearances on “The Garry Moore Show” contained a clause that allowed her to pursue a variety show within five years of her 10-year contract with the network. On the last day of that fifth year, she decided to push the button.

 ”They had forgotten about it,” she said, laughing at the implausibility of her rise to prominence on a technicality.

CBS initially asked Burnett to consider a sitcom instead, but she balked at the idea of doing the same thing each week. She wanted to play different characters. She wanted to have musical numbers. She was a Broadway baby, after all.

“The Carol Burnett Show” debuted in 1967 and ran for over 10 years. It was a ratings gem for the network, heralded as a good enough excuse to stay in on Saturday nights. Burnett made waves bringing in huge names for her musical acts and convincing them to participate in sketches, with the likes of Bing Crosby entangled in her physical comedy. She parodied entire movies, using the typically uneven genre of the variety show to deliver lengthy one-acts based on cultural staples. (See: That “Gone With The Wind” skit, in which Burnett emerges in the dress made of curtains, curtain rod and all.)

In 1978, Burnett ceased production on her own, having tired of the format in the shifting landscape of TV. “I’m sorry to see attention spans so short,” she said, when asked if the show could exist today. “You know, because we did longform. Sometimes, we had sketches that were 12 or 15 minutes. We took the time to build.”

Now, nearly 50 years after the premiere, Burnett is just as affable and giggly in interviews as during her famous question-and-answer sessions. On the phone with The Huffington Post, and in conversation with Ellie Kemper at the Paley Center, she talks about her impressive legacy with a sense of bemused incredulity. Her mode of looking back at “The Carol Burnett” show is perhaps best summed up by the shruggie emoji with a speech bubble reading, “I know, right?!” 

While speaking with Burnett about the release of her “Lost Episodes” DVD collection, she tap danced around the question of taking up space in a man’s world. I attended her event at the Paley Center, hoping she’d saved her discussion of women in comedy for Kemper.

The event was punctuated with clips from the show, most of which Burnett would chuckle at as though they had happened mere days before. She discussed her early years, of having first moved to Manhattan and working on “Once Upon A Mattress.” She remembered her time on “The Garry Moore Show” as the inspiration for her titular variety hour. She was as charming and wonderful as you would hope, but when Kemper asked about the current moment for women in comedy, Burnett giggled something like, “Oh, it’s all so great!” and waved her off.

Each question about the “current state of comedy” aimed at Burnett is a request for a mission statement, a call to action with hope that Burnett will urge the current generation to continue on the path she forged in Lucille Ball’s footsteps. But Burnett is elusive. She doesn’t overanalyze her impact or think about her career in such theoretical terms as “what she means” to the industry.

“My feeling is that if I had never been born, those women like Tina and Amy would still be doing what they’re doing today,” she said during our call.

Pushed to elaborate, Burnett shrugged again. “I never thought, ‘Oh gosh, I’m doing something only the guys could do or should do.’ I never felt that. Once we started the show I was the person who wanted to be funny and sing a song or two. I never analyzed it.”

At first glance, it might seem disappointing that Burnett doesn’t own — or maybe isn’t surprised by — her impact. But, on some level, her irreverent stance is even more defining than a fiercely defensive one might be. 

Whether the result of her whimsy or intention, there is power in refusing fearfulness, in combatting the obstacles by pretending they simply don’t exist.

When Burnett first started on the “The Garry Moore Show,” she leapt out a window during one scene and screamed with relief when she hit the mattress below. She had no experience with stunts and no idea it would be there.

“I was so naive!” she gasped. “I just thought, ‘Well, I’m just going to jump and land on the floor!’ I was never taught how to do it.”

Five decades ago, she broke down barriers with the same free-wheeling bravery she used to hurl herself off Moore’s set. In that skit and across her career, Burnett has never been totally sure that anything would be there to catch her when she fell. And it never totally mattered. She became a goddess of comedy by some mythical combination of transcending the sexist nonsense and not really worrying about it in the first place.

“You just have to go out there and do it,” she said, when asked what advice she’d give young comedians before hopping off the call. “I just went out there and did it. The more experience you get, the better you’re gonna be.”

Hero of the Futanari 1

Hero of the Futanari 1


Nick decides one day to go on a hike in the woods and trips, sending him tumbling down the hill sustaining a concussion and other injuries. When he wakes up, he finds a beautiful futa nurse, Jade, standing over him. Jade explains that the futas in the lodge have been tending to his injuries and healing him. Nick is thankful for their hospitality and offers to help out around the lodge. He meets everyone and quickly falls in love with Kiki, who has more than a passing eye for Nick. Their dilemma is explained to Nick, who discovers that he has the power to turn the tide and defeat the Nowomorgasms who have trapped the Futanari race on Futanarieos. The start is as absurd as you find in any futa manga but you will soon learn of the plot, yes there is a plot, and Nick learns that he has a special power. This light hearted novella is the first part of Nick’s story as he rises from being a lonely, single carpenter to the hero of a planet and people far, far away.A country lodge that can travel through space filled with futas?Why is Kiki so smitten with Nick?Their home planet of Futanarieos was the second planet in the system with the gas giant being the third. In many ways it was similar to Earth except Futanarieos had a higher oxygen content, making most things grow bigger causing all of the them to smile. There were two different societies that evolved on Futanarieos, the Futanaris that sit at this table today and the Nowomorgasms who were jealous of the Futanaris. As the Futanaris evolved over time they learned to live life to the fullest working hard during the day and playing hard at night. Things appeared to come easy to them from the perspective of the Nowomorgasms but in reality the Futanaris worked hard and treated their planet with respect. They never took more than they needed from the land and always treated all animals and plants with the highest honor. There were a few times over the years that the Futanaris reached out to the Nowomorgasms to show them a better

Why This Mom Is Calling Miley Cyrus a Hero

2015-05-08-1431122315-6935675-Miley.jpg

Say what you will about Miley Cyrus but the girl has the ability to accumulate press. And, what I’ve always loved about her, even when her actions made me cringe, is that she didn’t seem to care what other people said or thought. That kind of self-confidence, especially in a girl that age, always blew me away.

But, now she just because my freaking hero.

Have you heard of The Happy Hippie Foundation yet? If not, I want you to finish reading this sentence and take the link to read about it. I’ll be right here when you come back.

Did you read about it? Can you understand why I am moved to tears by her work? She outlines how 40 percent of homeless youth identify as LGBT and how 1 in 3 transgender youth have been turned away from shelters. She has started an organization to directly help homeless youth, LGBT youth, and other vulnerable populations achieve positive outcomes in their lives.

And Miley isn’t just talk. She raised over $ 200,000 in 24 hours for My Friend’s Place, an organization dedicated to helping homeless youth. I can’t even read their description of homeless youth statistics without getting choked up.

Miley’s marketing for her foundation is smart. She’ll be having backyard jam sessions with huge names like Joan Jett and posting them on Facebook to help raise awareness. Um, can you get any cooler than Joan Jett??

Somewhere along the way, little Hannah Montana has grown up to be a young woman who has the world’s attention with a voice on very adult issues. Her recent interview in Out magazine painted the picture of a young woman coming into her own with a desire to use her influence to change the world for youth.

As the parent of a transgender 9-year-old girl, I was excited to share that Miley is very aware of gender issues and embraces a life free from the boxes we traditionally put people into. From the Out Magazine article:

“Miley says she already spent a lot of time struggling with traditional gender expectations–and being resentful that she was a girl. “I didn’t want to be a boy,” she clarifies. “I kind of wanted to be nothing. I don’t relate to what people would say defines a girl or a boy, and I think that’s what I had to understand: Being a girl isn’t what I hate, it’s the box that I get put into.”

My daughter didn’t know who Hannah Montana was (we missed that by a few years) but she was very aware of who Miley Cyrus was. I wish I could have captured the grin that spread across her face when I shared the news with her. Though my daughter identifies strongly as a female, I have a heart for gender-fluid individuals and feel that they are desperately underrepresented and face even more barriers. I’m so happy that Miley has been open and rather candid about her wish not to be put into a binary box.

Thank you, Miley. I am truly impressed with your work and I’m thrilled that my daughter can call you a role model.

Yep, I just said that. And meant it.

Clemente: The Passion And Grace of Baseball’s Last Hero

Clemente: The Passion And Grace of Baseball’s Last Hero


On New Year’s Eve 1972, following eighteen magnificent seasons in the major leagues, Roberto Clemente died a hero’s death, killed in a plane crash as he attempted to deliver food and medical supplies to Nicaragua after a devastating earthquake. David Maraniss now brings the great baseball player brilliantly back to life in “Clemente: The Passion and Grace of Baseball’s Last Hero, ” a book destined to become a modern classic. Much like his acclaimed biography of Vince Lombardi, “When Pride Still Mattered, ” Maraniss uses his narrative sweep and meticulous detail to capture the myth and a real man. Anyone who saw Clemente, as he played with a beautiful fury, will never forget him. He was a work of art in a game too often defined by statistics. During his career with the Pittsburgh Pirates, he won four batting titles and led his team to championships in 1960 and 1971, getting a hit in all fourteen World Series games in which he played. His career ended with three-thousand hits, the magical three-thousandth coming in his final at-bat, and he and the immortal Lou Gehrig are the only players to have the five-year waiting period waived so they could be enshrined in the Hall of Fame immediately after their deaths. There is delightful baseball here, including thrilling accounts of the two World Series victories of Clemente’s underdog Pittsburgh Pirates, but this is far more than just another baseball book. Roberto Clemente was that rare athlete who rose above sports to become a symbol of larger themes. Born near the canebrakes of rural Carolina, Puerto Rico, on August 18, 1934, at a time when there were no blacks or Puerto Ricans playing organized ball in the United States, Clemente went on to become the greatest Latino player in the major leagues. He was, in a sense, the Jackie Robinson of the Spanish-speaking world, a ballplayer of determination, grace, and dignity who paved the way and set the highest standard for waves of Latino players who followed in later generati

Seattle Campus-Shooting Hero Receives Flood Of Donations For Wedding Registry

SEATTLE (AP) — People have donated more than $ 22,000 in less than a day through an online fundraiser for the student who thwarted a shooting at a small Seattle university.

Jon Meis and other students stopped the gunman Thursday at Seattle Pacific University. Meis has been credited with pepper-spraying and pinning the gunman while he was reloading his shotgun.

Soon after Meis was identified, praise began to pour out on social media sites. Someone found Meis’ wedding registry, and people quickly bought out the gifts listed.

That’s when sports radio producer Jessamyn McIntyre got the idea to begin a GoFundMe site for Meis and his fiancé’s honeymoon and future. The site quickly went viral.

According to the page’s statistics, more than 700 donations have come in as of Saturday afternoon — tallies that are expected to increase.

McIntyre said she hasn’t had direct contact with the Meis family, who has asked for privacy. But she has left them her contact information. She also contacted university officials.

McIntyre will leave the fundraising page up for a week, unless the family asks her to take it down, she said.

On the donations page, people continue praising Meis. One person posted, “Only one word needed: Inspiring,” to go with a $ 20 donation.

A 26-year-old suspect was charged after the shooting that left a 19-year-old man dead and two other young people wounded. The quick action by Meis likely saved lives, police said.

When guards confronted Rice (along with her two male accomplices) back in 2012, she began singing and then offered him food. And on Tuesday, while being sentenced in federal court in Knoxville, she asked the judge for even more time behind bars. “Please have no leniency with me,” she said. “To remain in prison for the rest of my life would be the greatest gift you could give me.”
