Shawn Windsor Detroit Free Press Published 10:02 p.m. UTC Jun 30, 2018 Seth Borton hit the biggest shot of his life over a future NBA All-Star. It was in the Michigan high school state quarterfinals and Borton, playing for Adrian Lenawee Christian, tear-dropped a shot over Wyoming Tri-Unity's Chris Kaman. All 7 feet of him. Borton, a 5-10 guard, hit the shot near the buzzer to push the game into overtime, where Lenawee Christian won. His team lost in the semis at the Breslin Center. Borton recalled this story as he drove to Ludington recently for a family vacation. Though this isn't a story about basketball. It's about fishing. And how Borton took what he learned playing for Lenawee Christian, and later Siena Heights University, and turned tiny Adrian College into a bass fishing powerhouse. Wait … bass fishing? That's a collegiate sport? Why, yes, it is. Not only is it a sport, more than 1,000 universities and colleges compete … [Read more...] about How basketball helped make Adrian College a powerhouse — in bass fishing

Longtime National Golden Gloves Executive Director Jim Beasley can rest easy in retirement.

Adrian Piper. Everything #2.8, 2003. Photocopied photograph on graph paper, sanded with sandpaper, overprinted with inkjet text. Adrian Piper Research Archive Foundation Berlin Around 1965, Adrian Piper says she took LSD about six times over a period of six months. Just entering the School of Visual Arts in Manhattan, the young artist, in her late teens, was already a voracious reader, captivated by the Beat poets and discovering meditation and yoga, the latter of which she would continue to practice. It was a formative period, and one where psychedelic experiences were becoming more commonplace. LSD was still legal in 1965, and Piper, as she told an interviewer much later, was looking to “go beyond the surfaces of things.”The drawings and paintings that resulted from this early experiment comprise the opening of a new career retrospective, A Synthesis of Intuitions, 1965–2016, running through July 22 at the Museum of Modern Art. At first glance these works, mostly … [Read more...] about Does MoMA Downplay the Influence of Psychedelic Drugs on Adrian Piper’s Work?
