From the best-selling, critically acclaimed author of Namath and Pistol comes another remarkable biography: the life of Ray “Boom Boom” Mancini. In the early 1980s, Mancini was more than the lightweight champ. He was a national hero. Sinatra fawned over him. Warren Zevon wrote a tribute song. Sylvester Stallone produced his life story as a movie of the week. After all, an adoring public considered Boom Boom the real Rocky. Lenny Mancini - the original Boom Boom, as he was known - had been a lightweight contender himself before fragments of German mortar shell almost killed him in 1944. By winning the championship just as he vowed - for his wounded father - Ray produced his own feel-good fable for network television. But it all came apart in a brutal 1982 battle against an obscure Korean challenger. Deuk Koo Kim lost consciousness in the fourteenth round and died within days. Three months later, his despondent mother took her own life. The deaths would haunt Ray and ruin his image, turning boxing’s All-American Boy into a pariah. Now, 30 years later, Kriegel finally uncovers the story’s full dimensions, tracking the Mancini and Kim families across generations and excavating mysteries - from the killing of Mancini’s brother to the fate of Kim’s son. Even as the scenes move from Youngstown to New York, Las Vegas to Seoul, Reno to Hollywood, The Good Son remains an intimate history, a saga of fathers and fighters, loss and redemption. 1.

Media organizations are facing significant challenges for relevance and survival and groping for possible lifelines. Media executives have been lobbying for tax breaks from Congress. Some are exploring opportunities to get free or low-priced content from non-profit organizations, others are involved in massive downsizings and cost-cutting measures, and still others are closing. These closings are leaving entire communities often lacking credible local news and information. One of the more promising programs to help sustain legacy media appears to be university-media collaborations that are modeled after a teaching hospital example. Since 2008, numerous medical residency type journalism programs have emerged and are considered by many to be a key part of efforts to revitalize legacy media. This book examines the history of experiential learning in journalism and then offers a close examination of two operating news service projects, one at the City University of New York Graduate School of Journalism and another at the author s home school, Youngstown State University.

Anthony Strollo wuchs in Manhattan in der Nähe der Manhattan Bridge auf. Während der Alkoholprohibition erwarb sich Strollo eine ansehnliche Reputation als bootlegger (am: Alkoholschmuggler) und Auftragsmörder. Er diente in den 1920er Jahren unter Joe Masseria. Im Krieg von Castellammare wechselte er allerdings auf die Seite von Salvatore Maranzano und diente unter Joseph Bonanno, der Maranzano als Boss nachfolgte, weshalb der Clan unter ihm als Bonanno-Familie klassifiziert wurde.

Steven John Bator, known as Stiv Bators (October 22, 1949 June 2, 1990), was an American rock and roll and punk rock vocalist and guitarist from Youngstown, Ohio. He is best remembered for his bands, The Dead Boys and The Lords of the New Church. In the course of his career, Bators was involved with a variety of bands beyond those for which he was best known. These short-term bands included Rocket From The Tombs with Craig Bell of the Saucers, Hormones with Dennis Comeau and Andre Siva, Frankenstein, The Wanderers and The Whores of Babylon (with Dee Dee Ramone and Johnny Thunders). He also recorded as a solo artist with Bomp! Records. It was as the lead singer and driving force of the Dead Boys, however, that Bators helped pioneer the punk rock sound, look and attitude. Bators and the Dead Boys were featured in the independent punk rock films Punking Out (1978), Live at CBGB's (1977) and Crash 'n' Burn (1977). Around the same time, the band became a popular staple at CBGB's, the now-legendary music club in New York City's East Village.
