MEET TORONTOS QUEEN OF THE DANCE FLOOR WHO CAUGHT DRAKES EYE

first_imgAdvertisement Advertisement Who’s that girl?For Andrea Bolley, it’s the question that indubitably swoops up and down the local party scene, particularly among novices.Seeing her dart through it — dressed in the long frock coats she favours, and a countenance that throbs with the guise of a latter-day Lauren Bacall — it’s clear, however, that she doesn’t exactly fit the dictionary definition of “girl.” Nor does it square when she casually drops mentions of long-gone hot spots, like Bemelmans and Prego. But, where the usual suspect can — and does — outplay all and any millennial comers? On the dance floor of life. Andrea Bolley poses with Drake at an exclusive pre-opening event held at the rap superstar’s new Toronto restaurant, Pick 6ix (Johnny Nunez/Getty Images for Remy Martin) Rug-cutting like no one else, she is the “secret sauce,” some might say, to shindigs, galas and launches in this town — a foil to the dreary, frozen-smiled socialites one routinely sees around, as well as the hashtag-mad, too-trite newer kids. Something that even Drake, yes, Drake! — Toronto’s unofficial mayor — noticed when he saw her dancing at a party, and since has made her part of his “squad,” one might say. It’s not every day that you see a white woman of a certain age pop into his social media stream, as was the case when he included her in an Instagram Story he posted a few months ago.“Who are you?” Bolley, somewhat shy off the dance floor, recalls Drake asking when she crossed paths with him at the opening of his restaurant Fring’s on King St. W. in 2015. She was making her moves, feeling the music, when he started taking a photo of her and then told her to come join him in his booth. “He was, like, c’mon up,” she continues, summing up the moment. “I said no. He said, ‘You have to!’ He took my purse and jacket. Asked me what I’m drinking. I said vodka and tonic. He said, ‘Same as me!’ Jada Pinkett Smith was there too.” Facebook Advertisement Login/Register With: LEAVE A REPLY Cancel replyLog in to leave a comment Twitterlast_img read more

The US Is On Pace For A Lousy Olympics

Italy23.1610.3 China01.4510.9 Gold medalsAll medals South Korea35.259.7 Canada511.71530.3 Belarus11.923.9 Here’s how it works: We collected Winter Olympics medal data going back to 1998, when snowboarding was added to the official program as a new sport,2As of the 2018 Games, snowboarding is the most recent new sport to be added to the Winter Olympics. and then calculated the share of medals that each country won in each sport. For example, from 1998 to 2014, the U.S. won 33 percent of all gold medals in snowboarding, to go with 17 percent of silvers and 30 percent of bronzes. (Yes, we’re pretty good at snowboarding.) Then we used those historical rates to set the baseline expectations — the expected medals — for the 2018 Pyeongchang Games.3For example, anytime a snowboarding medal is awarded, we add 0.33 golds, 0.17 silvers and 0.30 bronzes to the U.S.’s expected medal tally. There is one big exception to note: The Olympic athletes from Russia use the Russian Federation’s expected-medal rates, but with a 25 percent reduction to reflect the reduced number of Russian athletes competing in the 2018 Games (plus whatever other negative effects the Russian doping scandal might have on their medal tally).Add up all of those expected medals, and you can see where a country “should” be based on what it’s good at and what’s happened at the games so far. And the U.S. is definitely underperforming in South Korea, relative to expectations. Based on the events that have already been completed at the games, we would expect to have seen 18 American podium appearances thus far, which is exactly double the number the U.S. has actually had. From Lindsey Jacobellis’s coming up short again in boardercross to Mikaela Shiffrin’s shocking non-medal in slalom, Lindsey Vonn’s super-G struggles and Nathan Chen’s disappointing fifth-place finish in men’s figure-skating, no country is off to a rougher start in Pyeongchang than the Americans.The good news for the U.S., however, is that there are plenty of medal events remaining in which American athletes excel. Based on its rates over the 1998-2014 period, we would expect the U.S. to pick up about 18 more medals before the games are over, which is more than any other country’s projection. Even if that happens, however, our tracker projects that the U.S. would finish a distant fourth in the final medal table — which would be its worst showing at the Winter Olympics since 1998 — but at least it would mean the second half of the games was a lot better than the first.For Norway, this is shaping up to be its best performance at the Winter Games ever. Even though a number of their best events are over, the Norwegians should still finish strong. Indeed, if they (and everyone else) simply perform to expected baselines over the rest of the Olympics, Norway will finish first in the standings, with 34 medals, ahead of Germany and Canada. Netherlands68.91320.5 Country▲▼Current▲▼Projected▲▼Current▲▼Projected▲▼ Austria35.1917.5 Norway711.42234.1 France34.7713.7 Who will win the most golds?Medal projections based on each country’s current medals and historical performance in remaining events, as of the end of competition on Feb. 17 Liechtenstein0<0.111.0 Spain0<0.122.0 Sweden45.6712.6 Switzerland24.5713.7 The 2018 Winter Olympics are basically halfway over,1Which is sad, because winter is the best kind of Olympics. and the usual suspects are off to a great start. The Norwegians, the kings of cross-country skiing, currently lead the medal table with 22 pieces of hardware, including seven golds. The Germans, who traditionally rule luge and biathlon, are not far behind with nine golds and 17 medals. The United States, meanwhile, is in a four-way tie for fifth, having nabbed only nine total medals.How many should we expect the U.S. to have at this stage of the games, though? Since medals in different sports are awarded at different times, it can be difficult to know whether a country is behind where they should be or right on track. To help with that, we created a simple medal tracker. It compares a given country’s medal count with how many we’d expect based on its historical performance in the sports that have already been completed at this year’s games. It also tells you how many remaining medals a country should pick up over the rest of the Olympics if its athletes play to form. (One note on this: We’re looking at the broad categories of events that make up the Olympics — Alpine skiing, snowboarding, curling, etc. — not the specific events within those categories.)

Ohio State womens lacrosse off to programbest 91 start after 2 wins

OSU freshman attacker Avery Murphy (27) during a game against Cincinnati on March 11 at Ohio Stadium. Credit: Courtesy of OSUThe No. 17 Ohio State women’s lacrosse team toppled Binghamton and Hofstra over the weekend, allowing it to ride a seven-game win streak home from New York.The Buckeyes beat Binghamton 10-5 on Friday. Sophomore attackman Molly Wood led OSU with four goals, while senior attackman Cian Dabrowski added two goals and three assists. Dabrowski leads the team with 25 goals this season. Most of the scoring happened in the first period after senior midfielder Kelsey Gallagher set the tone, scoring a goal a mere two minutes in. Binghamton tied it up a minute later, and the game remained tied until junior midfielder Paulina Constant scored the first of three straight goals from the Buckeyes, giving them a 4-1 lead. The game went back and forth from there, but Wood scored two consecutive goals to give OSU a 8-4 advantage at halftime. Wood scored another goal just 33 seconds into the second half, making the score 9-4 in favor of OSU. Dabrowski added the last Buckeye goal with 20 minutes left. Senior goalkeeper Katie Frederick earned the win, registering six saves. The Buckeye defense had a solid performance, holding the Bearcats to five goals, and OSU outshot Binghamton 32-15 and forced 20 turnovers.OSU then beat Hofstra in an 18-8 victory on Sunday. The win marked OSU coach Alexis Venechanos’ 100th career victory and boosted the Buckeyes’ record to 9-1, which equals the program record for the best start to a campaign.Dabrowski tallied a career-high six goals on just seven shots, giving her 100 goals for her career. Wood added four goals and tied her career high with 13 draw controls. Senior attackman Rainey Hodgson contributed five assists on the day. She has 20 assists on the year, which already eclipses her season total from 2015.The Buckeyes were in control the entire game, netting the first nine goals of the match, the first of which came just 15 seconds in. OSU held a 14-3 advantage in draw controls in the first half and outshot the Pride 18-7. OSU led the game 14-3 by halftime. The Buckeyes’ biggest lead was 18-3 with 20 minutes left, before they surrendered five goals after the game was already out of reach. Frederick picked up another win, making two saves in the game. OSU is primed to be back in action Saturday for its Big Ten opener against Michigan. The game is slated to start at 3 p.m. in Ann Arbor, Michigan. read more

first_img Videos Articles Facebook Twitter John Cena Says WWE Doesn`t Need Him This week’s 9/22 WWE RAW taping in Memphis was described as being “far more crazy than usual” per a new report by Dave Meltzer. Vince McMahon reportedly decided to rewrite the entire show a little over an hour before it was going live on the USA Network. The script still wasn’t finish when they went live. WWE had originally advertised Randy Orton vs. Dean Ambrose earlier in the day and dropped those plans in favor of having John Cena vs. Randy Orton close the show and have Ambrose face Kane.Source: The Wrestling Observer NewsletterRecommended videosPowered by AnyClipWWE Lists The Shields Top 10 WinsVideo Player is loading.Play VideoPauseUnmuteDuration 0:30/Current Time 0:02Loaded: 100.00%0:02Remaining Time -0:28 FullscreenUp NextThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

As far as my appearance in the game, I think it’s pretty spot on. They could have made me a little more jacked, that would have been more realistic. My muscles are a little smaller in the game than they are in real life so I’m a little upset about that but as far as from an entrance perspective and gameplay, wow, it’s just breathtaking.”On getting cheered by audiences:“I don’t think I’m a category. I can’t be put in a category just because I don’t feel like there’s good people and bad people in real life. I think there’s good people who do bad things and bad people who do good things. There’s no such thing as good and bad. There’s just this collage of humanity that society has portrayed. You dress like this when you’re in front of people but behind closed doors, who knows who you really are.”On the past year in the WWE:“It’s been tremendous but it’s not enough. It’s never enough. So it’s like the tenacity to move forward and jeep moving forward. And the things I have planned that are coming up are going to be alarming for the rest of the world, the free world.”Recommended videosPowered by AnyClipVin Diesel and John Cena share ‘intense’ sceneVideo Player is loading.Play VideoPauseUnmuteDuration 1:05/Current Time 0:04Loaded: 100.00%0:05Remaining Time -1:01 FullscreenUp NextThis is a modal window.Beginning of dialog window.

Magenta Theaters Magentots offers shows for children close to home

first_imgSeveral Clark County theater schools — including Journey Theater, Riverside Performing Arts and Metropolitan Performing Arts — offer young thespians a chance to practice their craft and show off for adoring parents and grandparents.Downtown Vancouver’s Magenta Theater is flipping that script. On Saturday afternoon, Magenta launches “Magentots,” a performance series where adoring adults show off for kiddies in the audience — or, at least, bring children to the show for some formative exposure to live, local theater.That may seem like icing on life’s cake, but research has repeatedly demonstrated that exposure to the arts benefits children by boosting their critical thinking, vocabulary and math skills. It also expands their tolerance of differences and understanding of complex human situations .“Our community has only ever been able to get that experience in Portland up until now,” said Jaynie Roberts, Magenta founder and artistic director. “But now, it’s here in the Couve.”The opening Magentots show will be an interactive, comedy takeoff on the fairy tale “Sleeping Beauty.” In this version our kindly storyteller is reading the tale aloud from his big book when it’s snatched away by the evil Griselda. Always stuck playing the villain, she wants to set the record straight about someone whose garbled name, she’ll have you know, was really Sleeping Betty.last_img read more
