Roman had a dream, and it died a quiet death

afootballreport:

By Darshan Joshi

Like Martin Luther King Jr., Roman Abramovich has a dream. Or, rather, he had a dream, which really was less a dream than a looming reality. Problem is, it was ever looming, and it now seems to have passed him by. The Champions League trophy was on Abramovich’s horizon for years, yet it turned out to be no more than a mirage, a now long-lost memory of hope forgone. After all, he was the first in England to do what he did. That morose night in Moscow is the closest the Russian came to grasping his dreams by the throat. John Terry, now proprietor and poster-boy for lube, slipped. It was the ironic, pre-emptive karmic guillotine.

Stowe Boyd: The Future Of Money: Bruce Sterling →

When you are interested in magic, you might want to talk to a witch doctor, so when I started to think about the future of money, I thought I should talk to a science fiction author. Who better? As it so happens, I know one.

Bruce Sterling is a well-known science fiction author, perhaps best…

Fighting the Power Shift - Arsene’s Last Struggle?

afootballreport:

By Ulysse Pasquier, writing from Montreal

Football clubs do enjoy their deadline drama it seems. These last couple of days have been so hectic it has become difficult to keep track of my Twitter feed every single deal, and the transfer window is not even closed yet! We can expect more signings in the next 24 hours that could shape the rest of the season, notably in the Premier League with much of the attention focused on Arsenal. The Gunners have been incredibly busy since their humiliating defeat at Old Trafford, getting their hands on Park Chu Young from Monaco while waiting for Andre Dos Santos and Per Mertesacker to follow the South Korean to North London. Arsene Wenger has had a very worrying start of the season, to say the least, and Arsenal’s top four spot is already severely threatened, only three match-days into the new campaign. Whether this new found taste for spending is a reaction to this weekend’s loss or part of “Le Plan” is irrelevant, however after Manchester City’s performance at White Hart Lane, it could very well be Wenger’s despairing attempt at saving Arsenal’s seat in the Champions League.

I’m definitely not shy about my love for local, organic, grass-fed (pastured), sustainably raised, hormone-free meat. But I’ve never had a chance to join a meat CSA. Lucky for you, contributor Blair T. has, and she’s about to tell you all about it! In her post, she explains why you should join a meat CSA, how to find one in your area, and what to do once you’ve joined.
