In his new book, “Brazil’s Dance With the Devil: The World Cup, The Olympics and the Fight for Democracy,” sportswriter Dave Zirin tackles the growing unrest in Brazil in the leadup to one of sport’s biggest spectacles. Thousands of police officers have joined bus drivers for day two of a massive strike in São Paulo, just weeks before the World Cup is set to begin. Meanwhile, more than ten thousand people have occupied a lot next to one of the arenas that will host the World Cup’s opening match. They call their protest, “The People’s Cup” and are opposing the nearly half a billion dollars spent on the stadium, even as their communities lack adequate hospitals and schools. Demonstrations throughout the country have called attention to similar concerns. Zirin joins Democracy Now to discuss the protests rocking Brazil, as well as the biggest sporting controversy in the United States — the NBA’s attempt to oust owner Donald Sterling over his racist comments about African Americans. Zirin is a sports columnist for The Nation magazine and host of Edge of Sports Radio on Sirius/XM.

Rihanna Goes Topless

Rihanna Goes Topless

for French magazine LUI cover.

Multiple pictures have been posted to Rihanna’s Instagram from her photo shoot with Vogue Brazil and her double cover of their magazine.

Her sun kissed petite framed body and pierced nipples has the fans going bananas!
I can honestly say I like Rihanna very much so, she reminds me of a new age Madonna (I grew up listening to and watching Madonna).

Rihanna’s I don’t give a fck attitude and edgy music keeps me and people alike interested in what she’s got up her sleeve next.
