    Dear Vecino, Let's talk about Cesar Chavez

    in Politics Progressive

    On a roundtrip to San Diego this past Saturday, we drove and drove and drove from Highland to San Diego to Fontana. Along the way, we passed a large agricultural field where I glimpsed 8-10 men, dressed for working the field (large hats, long sleeves, bandannas tied around their neck) walking among the rows of soil and greenery.


    During a luncheon hosted by the Chicano Latino Caucus, I heard Maria Elena Durazo speak of the man, Cesar Chavez and La Causa. She said to the brothers and sisters in the room that this discussion was not nostalgia in any way, for the call to action is as imperative now as it ever was.


    I considered the men in the field, I thought of my friends in the Warehouse Workers who have fought and won lawsuits for stolen wages, unsafe conditions and more. Fans in the warehouse. Safe, drinking water available. I reflected upon my husband who has sat in a few anti-union training sessions over the past several years. And my niece, who, in less than a year, has been told that a union only wants her money. Her hard-earned minimum wage, part-time, money.


    And, I wanted to remember something grand and powerful and imperative and I wanted to move and dance and start a revolution. After all, I was sitting in the only union-hotel in both San Bernardino and Riverside county. We just had a special election where Tea Party/Anti-Union Republicans turned out 2 to 1, aided in part by a split in our candidates and by the apathy of working people. It has been two decades of Central Labor Council Secretary-Treasurer Stalnaker where cohesion and electoral effectiveness have been decimated. Yes, it is time to bring some poetry and some vision.

    Check Out My Interview with Cesar “Ceez” Rosado on July 28th @6pm CST

    in Blogs

    Cesar “Ceez” Rosado, or the “Intellect”, is a rising East Coast Hip Hop artist. Growing up in one of Jersey’s infamous areas Brick City, known to most as Newark, New Jersey, during the early 1990s proved to be fate for this aspiring rapper. Newark is home to many influential artists; from Naughty By Nature, Queen Latifah, to Redman, Newark is the birthing place of another rose from a concrete garden. Although Ceez was directly submerged by many elements of street life, his mother kept him grounded in family, loyalty, and education. He then went on to graduate from The Stern School of Business with a finance degree from New York University.

    Provodnikov-Matthysse, Crawford-Dulorme, Chavez Jr.-FonFara Review

    in Sports

    In the most highly anticipated fight thus far in 2015, Lucas Matthysse and Ruslan Provodnikov squared off in an incredibly gutsy fight live from Tunring Stone in Verona, New York. 


    The fight started off in Matthysse’s favor, although the first round could be considered a feel out by their standards, even though it had plenty of action compared to the average opening round. Matthysse kept Provodnikov in check and kept getting loser and looser as the round went on.HBO card was one of the most anticipated in quite some time, but the evening’s co-feature was deserving of some attention, too, although it was lost a bit on the main event. In the televised co-feature, Omaha’s favorite boxer, Terrance “Bud” Crawford, stepped up to junior welterweight for the first time and took on Thomas Dulorme.


    The perception was that Crawford was the high ranked fighter worth the world-class tag, while Dulorme was the highly skilled fighter that would never live up to his original aspirations. Crawford, who struggled to make weight in his last 135lb title defense, stayed patient early and allowed Dulorme to dictate based on output.Over on ShowTime tonight, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. headlined in a fight against Andrzej Fonfara live from the StubHub Center in Carson, California. It was Chavez’s first fight back from a year long layoff.


    Fonfara looked really god from the opening bell, while Chavez Jr. spent more time complaining than fighting. Fonfara stayed planted and threw meaningful shots, putting together impressive combos. Chavez wasn’t very methodical with his offense, but instead he was hoping that he could overwhelm Fonfara at some point.

    Lucas Matthysse vs Ruslan Provodnikov, Fonfara-Chavez Recaps

    in Sports

    Inside of the ring, objectively, it doesn't get a whole lot better than last weekend. Between Matthysse-Provodnikov and Terence Crawford vs Thomas Dulorme on HBO and Andrzej Fonfara vs Julio Cesar Chavez on Showtime, there was mayhem, dirty tactics, drama, classy boxing, blood and, not to be overlooked, tremendous heart shown. Unfortunately so much of the great stuff was overshadowed by an ill-advised social media choice from Sergey Kovalev. This week on TQBR Radio, James Foley of Bad Left Hook and The Queensberry Rules' Patrick Connor cover it all, from top to bottom -- including this coming weekend's Wladimir Klitschko vs Bryant Jennings...whatever it is. Thanks for tuning in!

    Provodnikov-Matthysse, Crawford-Dulorme, Chavez Jr.-FonFara Preview

    in Sports

    If a fight is called something similar to Arturo Gatti and Micky Ward, it has a lot to live up to. When Brandon Rios and Mike Alvarado slugged it out in October of 2012, it seemed like we were going to get such a thing. While the fight was great for 7 rounds, it didn’t come close. Now this Saturday we have something that many are saying is Gatti-Ward, will it come close? HBO Boxing kicks off spring with an action-packed, split-site doubleheader featuring some of the most exciting fighters in the sport when HBO BOXING AFTER DARK: LUCAS MATTHYSSE VS. RUSLAN PROVODNIKOV AND TERENCE CRAWFORD VS. THOMAS DULORME is seen SATURDAY, APRIL 18 at 9:45 p.m. (live ET/tape-delayed PT) from Turning Stone Resort Casino in Verona, NY.


    In the main event of the SHOWTIME CHAMPIONSHIP BOXINGdoubleheader, Mexican superstar Chavez, Jr. (48-1-1, 32 KOs) meets dangerous brawler Andrzej Fonfara (26-3, 15 KOs) in a 12-round light heavyweight bout.


     


    In the 10-round co-feature, top 10 ranked junior welterweight contender Amir Imam (16-0, 14 KOs) will aim to move one step closer to a world title opportunity when he makes his second start of 2015 against fellow power-puncher Walter Castillo (25-2, 18 KOs).

    Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. vs. Brian Vera Recap

    in Sports

    We're on the home stretch now, people. And that's not meant to be a, "Ahhh, finally 2013 is almost over" thing, but rather a "Let's close 2013 out with a giant kick in the pants" thing. It's doubtful that this whole Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. vs. Brian Vera situation will be the last cringe-worthy event of the year, but at least on paper we're being treated right in the last three months. This week James Foley of BadLeftHook.com and Patrick Connor of Queensberry-Rules.com return after a week off to run down recent happenings and upcoming fights, like Wladimir Klitschko vs. Alexander Povetkin, Miguel Cotto vs. Delvin Rodriguez, and much more. Thanks for tuning in!
