How far would you travel to see a boxer you enjoyed watching ply his craft? This past Saturday, attending Gennady Golovkin's easy destruction of Marco Antonio Rubio in Carson, CA, I heard everything from Northern California, to Iowa, to Connecticut. If there were any question as to the budding stardom of "GGG," many remarked that this past weekend's success was the answer. This week on TQBR Radio, James Foley of Bad Left Hook and The Queensberry Rules' Patrick Connor pour accolades all over the Killer from Kazakhstan. But also on the agenda: Nicholas' Walters handling of Nonito Donaire on the undercard, as well as various other news pickings and musings. Thanks for tuning in!

Heliosaga- “Towers In The Distance” is the anticipated album rooted deep in European tradition, combining the best elements of power, symphonic, and gothic metal. Drawing comparisons from such bands as Xandria, Delain, and Leaves Eyes.
The name Heliosaga is a metaphor derived from helios, the Greek word for sun, and saga meaning the story/ history; thus, Heliosaga represents the journey of life.
“Towers In The Distance” lyrics are deeply personal, and the primary themes revolve around the state of the world, mortality and the personal struggles that all encounter. Mixed by Michael Hansen (Phonomik, Chainfist) at Phon Studio and mastered by Jacob Hansen (Epica, Volbeat) at Hansen Studios. Bass guitar tracks were recorded by Chad Novell (Fibonacci Sequence) and a guest guitar solo was performed by Gilbert Pot (Elegy).
Heliosaga was founded in 2010 by Damien Villarreal (keys/guitar) in San Antonio, Texas, soon after joined by Jordan Ames (drums). By September of 2010, the line-up was complete and the first practices were held. The ensuing year would see a five song demo, the first shows and various line-up changes. In 2012, Chelsea Knaack joined as lead vocalist and the band recorded the single “The Light of Ardor”, which was released in January 2013. Shortly before the recorded single was release, the band relocated to Minnesota and continued the writing process.

The practice of mediation is largely unregulated throughout the United States. In contrast to more formalized professions, such as nursing, social work, law, medicine or accounting, mediators generally have a fraction of the training, have no required ethics code, and no minimum quality testing. Dr. Goetz will chronicle current efforts in voluntary mediator certification underway in California to raise the level of mediator education and training and require a binding ethics code to serve the public.
Dr. Goetz has trained hundreds of mediators during the last 7 years through the California State University system. Prior to developing the mediation program, he was the founding Dean and President of Concord Law School, the first nationally accredited online law school. Dr. Goetz advocates for a stronger sense of professionalism in the field of mediation, and recently co-authored with Dr. Jennifer Kalfsbeek the article “Serving the Public: The Case for Formally Professionalizing Court-Connected and Litigated Case Mediation.” He currently serves as the co-chair of a Southern California Mediation Association Ad Hoc Committee on Voluntary Mediator Certification.

What was planned for the Occupy Wallstreet protesters will happen in Ferguson. An identified [DELETED] as of October planned to engage in sniper attacks against protestors (sic) in Houston, Texas if deemed necessary. An identified [DELETED] had received intelligence that indicated the protesters in New York and Seattle planned similar protests in Houston, Dallas, San Antonio and Austin, Texas.

Gennady “GGG” Golovkin took on Marco Antonio Rubio Saturday night and the Stub Hub Center in Carson California and it was business as usual for Golovkin.
The Kazakh knockout machine extended his consecutive KO streak to 18 stopping Rubio in the second round. Golovkin was simply too much for Rubio from the opening bell. In the first round Golovkin was already landing power punches that had tremendous effect on Rubio.
Many boxing fans were perhaps rightly more excited for the co-feature in the Barclay’s Center Saturday night than they were for the “Triple G” mismatch that followed, as the established Nonito Donaire (33-2, 21 KOs) went up against the hungry up-and-coming star, Nicholas Walters (24-0, 20 KOs).
Although this fight was looked upon as a 50/50 fight, there were still many who picked Donaire, feeling that Walter”s record was somewhat padded and because he had never gone a full twelve rounds, that he would be exposed by the experienced and durable Filipino.

On the flip-side however, there were of course question marks surrounding the 31-year old Donaire. How much did he really have left? He hadn’t looked the same since being badly defeated on points last April by the great Cuban Guillermo Rigondeaux. There were rumors that he had been getting beaten beaten up in sparring.
Remember Antonio Bay of the coast of Oregon? How about Stevie Wayne from KAB radio? Remember the first time you actually realized The Fog could actually be creepy, frightening and fatal? Thanks to the Brilliance of John Carpenter and Debra Hill you just may not look Fog the same. The first time I saw it in the theaters, my friend and I exited the theater only to find a heavy fog had settled into South King County, Washington where I attended high school. When she dropped me off as we were saying our goodbyes outside halfway between her car and my front door we heard a strange noise from something hidden in "pea soup" fog that night. We grabbed each other as if embracing could somehow protect us. In later years we laughed about it, but it sure went a long way to the mystic and ambiance of the movie that night.
Join the discussion about the things that go bump in the fog and why simple weather events can instill so much fear. John Carpenter was a master at creating fearful tension with every day situations, but there are also relationship issues in the film that will be fun to discuss as well. See you there on Philmchology just beware!
