Stan Druckenmiller has some advice for you Get o

first_imgStan Druckenmiller has some advice for you: “Get out of the stock market.” Druckenmiller is one of the world’s greatest traders. From 1986 to 2010, his hedge fund earned average annual returns of 30%. Even more incredible, he never had one down year. Druckenmiller stopped managing outside money in 2010. Today, he runs a family fund with about $1 billion in assets. • Like us, Druckenmiller is bearish on U.S. stocks… During the third quarter of 2015, he cut his holdings in U.S. stocks by 41%. He then issued this warning in November: I’m working under the assumption that we may have started a primary bear market in July… I can see myself getting really bearish. I can’t see myself getting really bullish. The S&P 500 has since fallen 3%. It’s now down 4% from its all-time high. According to the mainstream definition, a bull market ends when an index falls 20%. By that measure, U.S. stocks are still “technically” in a bull market…but they may not be for much longer. • Last week, Druckenmiller said the “bull market is exhausting itself”… He delivered the message at an investor’s conference in New York City. He gave plenty of reasons for why he’s so bearish. For one, Druckenmiller thinks stocks are expensive. According to the CAPE ratio (a popular metric that gives a long-term view of the market), companies in the S&P 500 are 55% more expensive than their historic average. Druckenmiller thinks it’s ridiculous stocks are this expensive. If anything, they should be cheap: If the stock market is the future, we should be selling at a discount right now, not a premium. • Druckenmiller is also worried about weak corporate earnings… Regular readers know Corporate America is in an “earnings drought.” Earnings for companies in the S&P 500 have fallen three straight quarters. They’re on track to decline for a fourth consecutive quarter. That hasn’t happened since the 2008-2009 financial crisis. Yet, stocks are still near record highs. Druckenmiller called the disconnect between corporate profits and stock prices “unprecedented in market history.” • Druckenmiller is concerned about excessive borrowing too… U.S. corporations have issued more than $9.9 trillion in debt since 2008. Last year, corporations issued a record $1.5 trillion in debt. Borrowing money isn’t necessarily a bad thing. If companies invest the borrowed money in their businesses to buy new machinery or develop new products, it can be a good thing. But that’s not what companies are using debt for these days. Companies are borrowing money to pay for acquisitions and share buybacks. A buyback is when a company buys back its own stock from shareholders. It reduces a company’s share count, which increases earnings per share. In other words, buybacks often make earnings look stronger “on paper” without improving the actual business. Last year, U.S. corporations spent $2 trillion on buybacks and acquisitions. That’s about $200 billion more than they spent on research and development and capital expenditures, which includes new machinery and equipment. Druckenmiller said this “unproductive corporate behavior” is starting to take its toll. Operating cash flow for U.S. companies has shrunk over the past year while net debt increased. • The stock market is starting to crack… Dispatch readers know stocks have taken investors for a ride over the past 12 months. Just look at this chart of the S&P 500… • The Federal Reserve has launched all sorts of crazy schemes since the 2008 financial crisis… It’s created $3.5 trillion from nothing and pumped it into the financial system. It’s held its key interest rate near zero for eight years. These radical, unproven policies were supposed to “stimulate” the economy. But the U.S. economy is hardly growing. In many ways, the average American is worse off. The real median household income is more than $2,500 lower today than it was in 2008. The Fed’s easy money did fuel a historic rally in stocks. The S&P 500 surged 215% from March 2009 to May 2015…but even that high is starting to fade. As noted, the S&P 500 is down 4% over the past year. • Druckenmiller says the Fed’s “radical monetary experiment” has gone too far… Yahoo! Finance reported last week: “I have argued that the myopic policymakers have no end game,” Druckenmiller said. “They stumble from one short-term fiscal or monetary stimulus to the next despite overwhelming evidence that they only produce a sugar high and grow unproductive debt that impedes long-term growth.” The Fed might not have an end game, but Druckenmiller says the “markets do.” Moreover, the continued decline of global growth despite unprecedented stimulus the past decade suggest we have borrowed so much from our future and for so long that the chickens are now coming home to roost. • E.B. Tucker, editor of The Casey Report, also thinks the bull market in U.S. stocks is over… He titled the September issue of The Casey Report “R.I.P. 2009-2015 Bull Market.” Like Druckenmiller, he’s been telling investors to sell stocks. He’s also urged his readers to own gold. This advice has paid off. Gold is up 20% this year. Last week, the price of gold topped $1,300, a key psychological level, for the first time since January 2015. He also recommended two gold stocks this year. One is up 30% since April. The other is up 34% since March. E.B.’s also shorting (betting against) some of America’s most vulnerable companies. One of his shorts, a bet against a major airliner, is up 11% since February.

It’s a must-watch for anyone worried about the tiring stock market, slowing economy, or fragile global financial system. Click here to watch this free video. Chart of the Day World debt has gone vertical… Today’s chart compares total world debt with world economic output. Up until about 20 years ago, debt and the economy grew at about the same rate. In the mid-90s, world debt overtook the global economy. It’s been soaring ever since. Over the past decade, each dollar of debt has added just $0.35 to the global economy. Needless to say, that’s a big problem. There’s no way the global economy will ever close this gap. But that won’t stop governments from trying to pay their debts by printing more money. This will only destroy the value of paper currencies. Meanwhile, the price of gold, which is real money that cannot be created from thin air, will soar. Foreign stocks have been just as volatile. The MSCI World Index (excl. U.S.) rallied 9% from January 2015 to April 2015. It’s since fallen 16%. Druckenmiller thinks the global stock market is nearing a crossroads. [V]olatility in global equity markets over the past year, which often precedes a major trend change, suggests that their risk/reward is negative without substantially lower prices and/or structural reform. Don’t hold your breath for the latter. When asked what to do about all this, Druckenmiller said the same thing he’s been saying for months: The conference wants a specific recommendation from me. I guess ‘Get out of the stock market’ isn’t clear enough. • Druckenmiller bought about $300 million worth of gold last year… That stake now represents about one-third of his fund’s money. We normally encourage investors to put 10% to 15% of their money in gold. But Druckenmiller isn’t your average investor. When he finds a trade he likes, he doesn’t tiptoe into it. He places huge bets. It’s why he calls himself a “pig.” The first thing I heard when I got in the business, not from my mentor, was bulls make money, bears make money, and pigs get slaughtered. I’m here to tell you I was a pig. And I strongly believe the only way to make long-term returns in our business that are superior is by being a pig. I think diversification and all the stuff they’re teaching at business school today is probably the most misguided concept everywhere. • Druckenmiller is buying gold for the same reasons we’re buying it… Gold is real money. Here’s Druckenmiller: Some regard it as a metal, we regard it as a currency and it remains our largest currency allocation. Gold has preserved wealth for centuries because it has a unique set of attributes: It’s durable, transportable, easily divisible, has intrinsic value, and is consistent across the world. Unlike paper currencies, governments cannot create more gold on a whim. And that’s more important than ever… Shocking Footage From Outside the Door of Our Affiliate’s Building You’ve got to see this… It’s footage from Baltimore, MD, right on the front doorstep of our affiliate’s headquarters.

MONTGOMERY Ala AP – Gubernatorial candidate Wa

first_imgMONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) – Gubernatorial candidate Walt Maddox is asking Alabama Governor Kay Ivey to release more information on her 2015 hospitalization, including if her office told the state trooper accompanying her to keep it secret.Maddox said in a Thursday press conference the issue is not Ivey’s health, but if there was lying about what happened.Maddox told reporters, “this is about a cover up.”Ivey says she developed altitude sickness during the Colorado trip. She’s disputing allegations by former law enforcement secretary Spencer Collier, who says the trooper serving as Ivey’s bodyguard reported she was hospitalized for stroke-like symptoms and an Ivey staffer directed him not to tell his bosses.Ivey said Tuesday that Maddox is pushing Collier’s accusation ahead of the Nov. 6 election, “because his liberal record is not connecting.”(Copyright 2018 The Associated Press.

LONDON AP — Russias sports reputation was rippe

first_imgLONDON (AP) — Russia’s sports reputation was ripped apart again Friday when a new report into systematic doping detailed a vast “institutional conspiracy” that covered more than 1,000 athletes in over 30 sports and corrupted the drug-testing system at the 2012 and 2014 Olympics.The findings were handed over to the International Olympic Committee, which will be under pressure to take action against the Russians ahead of the 2018 Winter Games in Pyeongchang, South Korea.“It is impossible to know just how deep and how far back this conspiracy goes,” World Anti-Doping Agency investigator Richard McLaren said. “For years, international sports competitions have unknowingly been hijacked by Russians. Coaches and athletes have been playing on an uneven field. Sports fans and spectators have been deceived.”McLaren’s second and final report said the conspiracy involved the Russian Sports Ministry, national anti-doping agency and the FSB intelligence service, providing further details of state involvement in a massive program of cheating and cover-ups that operated on an “unprecedented scale” from 2011-15.The Canadian law professor described the Russian doping program as “a cover-up that evolved over the years from uncontrolled chaos to an institutionalized and disciplined medal-winning strategy and conspiracy.”The findings confirmed much of the evidence contained in McLaren’s first report issued in July, while expanding the number of athletes involved and the overall scope of the cheating program in the sports powerhouse.“Over 1,000 Russian athletes competing in summer, winter and Paralympic sport can be identified as being involved in or benefiting from manipulations to conceal positive doping tests,” McLaren said.The names of those athletes, including 600 summer sports competitors, have been turned over to international federations to pursue disciplinary sanctions, he said.The 144-page report provided further forensic evidence of manipulation of samples at the 2014 Sochi Winter Games, where sealed doping bottles were opened with special tools by intelligence agents and tainted urine was replaced with clean urine to beat the drug-testing system.Russians who won 15 medals in Sochi had their samples tampered with, including two athletes who won four gold medals, McLaren found.The report also found the Russian doping program corrupted the 2012 London Olympics on an “unprecedented scale.” While no Russians tested positive at the time of the games, McLaren said the sports ministry gave athletes a “cocktail of steroids … in order to beat the detection thresholds at the London lab.”The report said 15 Russian medal winners in London had been on a list of athletes who had been protected by Russian officials from testing positive before the games. Ten of those athletes have since had their London medals stripped after their samples were retested.Declaring that McLaren’s findings detailed “a fundamental attack on the integrity of the Olympic Games and on sport in general,” the IOC said it would retest samples of all Russian athletes who competed in Sochi and London.IOC President Thomas Bach said any athlete or official involved “in such as sophisticated manipulation system” should be banned for life from the Olympics.The Russian Sports Ministry said it was studying the report and denied the country had any state-sponsored doping system.McLaren’s first report, issued in July, led WADA to recommend that Russia be excluded from the Rio de Janeiro Olympics. The IOC rejected calls for an outright ban, allowing international federations to decide which Russians could compete.The IOC has two separate commissions that will study McLaren’s report and make recommendations to the executive board for sanctions. While a blanket ban on Pyeongchang would seem unlikely, the IOC has indicated it will impose stiff sanctions.“We now have detailed information which will allow us to take serious decisions, so let’s take them,” WADA President Craig Reedie, who is also an IOC member, told The Associated Press. “If you look at the statements made by the IOC, it seems to be pretty likely they will take the appropriate decisions.”Other findings in the report include:— Six Russian athletes who won a total of 21 medals at the Sochi Paralympics had their urine samples tampered with.— Two female hockey players at the Sochi Olympics had samples that contained male DNA.— Eight Sochi samples had salt content that was physiologically impossible in a healthy human.U.S. Anti-Doping Agency CEO Travis Tygart called McLaren’s report “another staggering example of how the Olympic movement has been corrupted and clean athletes robbed by Russia’s state-supported doping system.”Tygart said the Russian Olympic Committee should be suspended and no international sporting events should be held in Russia until its anti-doping program is in line with global rules.While the report again accused the Russian Sports Ministry, it found no evidence of involvement of the Russian Olympic Committee. The IOC had repeatedly cited the fact that the national Olympic committee was not implicated in defending its decision not to ban the entire Russian team from the Rio Games.McLaren’s first report set off bitter divisions and infighting in the Olympic movement and those recriminations have dragged on since the Rio Games.“I find it difficult to understand why were at not on the same team,” he said. “We should all be working together to end doping in sports.”McLaren opened his investigation earlier this year after Moscow’s former doping lab director, Grigory Rodchenkov, told The New York Times that he and other officials were involved in an organized doping program for Russian athletes. He detailed how tainted samples were replaced with clean urine through a concealed “mouse hole” in the wall of the Sochi lab.The new report further backs Rodchenkov’s account. McLaren’s investigation found scratches and other marks left on the doping bottles. WADA investigators were able to recreate the method used by the Russians to pry open the sealed bottle caps.The report also detailed how some Russian samples were diluted with salt or even coffee granules.“The report has proved without a shadow of a doubt there was organized manipulation of the doping process in Russia,” Reedie said. “Now the challenge is for Russia, first of all to admit that the report is worthy, and second to make sure they change their process so this does not happen again.”Russian Deputy Prime Minister Vitaly Mutko, the former sports minister in charge during the London and Sochi Olympics, said Russia would take legal action in response to the report. It was not clear what course any legal action might take.Asked how he would respond to Russian critics, McLaren said: “I would say, ‘read the report.’”TweetPinShare0 Shareslast_img read more

On Wednesday Civica Rx a nonprofit drug company

first_imgOn Wednesday, Civica Rx, a nonprofit drug company founded last year by a consortium of hospitals and foundations, said it had entered an agreement with a Danish drugmaker to make available injected forms of vancomycin and daptomycin, two antibiotics that are often in short supply.Civica Rx has plans to become an alternative source of generic drugs for hospitals and provide a steady supply of critical medicines at reasonable prices . The company’s initial plan is to make 14 drugs and offer them to member health systems. The antibiotics are the first two that Civica Rx has publicly announced. “Vancomycin is kind of the typical shortage drug because it’s generic and it’s an injectable and it’s critically needed,” says Erin Fox, a pharmacist who studies drug shortages at University of Utah Health, one of Civica Rx’s members. “But we just haven’t had a very good routine supply of it for a while now,” she explains. She also recently joined Civica Rx’s advisory board. When the heavy-duty antibiotic vancomycin is in short supply, Dr. James Augustine, an emergency physician at Mercy Health hospitals in Cincinnati, gets worried. “Vancomycin has been our last-ditch antibiotic for quite a few years,” Augustine says. “It is our go-to antibiotic for very, very sick people and those with resistant infections.” Augustine collects information on drug shortages and shares it with other health care professional across the country. Shortages of key drug are a big and persistent problem for hospitals, he says. “We have experienced shortages of most every drug,” he says. “It’s getting hard to keep track,” Augustine says. In a survey last year of emergency physicians, 9 in 10 had experienced a shortage in the previous month.Shortages of vancomycin are a particular problem because it’s a powerful medicine that doesn’t have a good alternative, he says. It’s unclear why vancomycin, which has been a generic for many years, has experienced shortages, says University of Utah’s Fox. “Sometimes it’s just some kind of a supply constraint, or one company discontinuing production,” she says. “But we don’t always know the reasons for shortages. The companies won’t won’t tell us. In fact, pharma companies, while they’re required to report a shortage to the [Food and Drug Administration] FDA, they’re actually not required to provide the reason for that shortage to the FDA.”Neither vancomycin, whose name comes from the same root as vanquish, nor daptomycin drug is on the FDA’s list of drugs in short supply, but they both are on another drug shortage list that Fox helps manage, along with the reasons why, if available. Drug giant Pfizer, for example, lists shortages for both drugs because of “manufacturing delays.”Civica Rx won’t be making these drugs itself. Instead it has contracted with Danish drugmaker Xellia to make them with a Civica Rx label. Civica Rx’s member health systems currently include 800 hospitals across the country.Fox says the real innovation here is a new kind of contract between drugmakers and hospitals.”You can pretty much predict how much product you’re going to need at your hospital, and you can say, ‘Yep, I will purchase, say, 500 packages of this in a year,” she explains. “You would have to sign up for that and say, ‘I’m going to buy that,’ and if you don’t, the company still gets the money.”That “guaranteed volume” for Civica Rx is supposed to help with the periodic shortages. How much will the Civica Rx drugs cost? “Pricing will vary based on product,”company spokesperson Debbi Ford said in an email. She declined to provide specific prices.Vancomycin “right now is a fairly reasonable price,” says Martin VanTrieste, Civica’s president and CEO. “However daptomycin is one of those high-priced drugs, and we’ll be able to bring [it at] a significantly lower price.”VanTrieste says Civica’s pricing will be based on manufacturing costs, plus a “fair margin” for the drugmaker — in this case, Xellia. “Once we negotiate that price, we go back to our members and say, ‘I have vancomycin 1-gram vials I’m offering to you at “X” price. You want to opt in to purchase that product or opt out?’ “Dr. James Augustine’s health system, Mercy Health, isn’t a Civica Rx member, although membership is open. It costs $300 per hospital bed to join, according to VanTrieste.Augustine is encouraged by what Civica Rx is trying to do. “It’s a fabulous idea,” he says. But the company’s existence underscores for him that up until now, generic drugmakers have failed patients and providers. “They have decided not to make a reliable source of these medicines available and where possible to jack up the prices to to incredible levels,” he said. “It’s disgusting.””We always support additional competition to the market,” said Rachel Schwartz, a spokesperson for the Association for Accessible Medicines, a trade group for generic drugmakers, in an email.Civica Rx’s VanTrieste expects to be able to offer the two antibiotics to member health systems this summer. That’s when the experiment to prevent drug shortages and bring down prices will be put to a real-world test. Copyright 2019 NPR. To see more, visit https://www.npr.org.last_img read more

Prepared by FFWPU Brazil This weekend on January

first_imgPrepared by FFWPU BrazilThis weekend, on January 22, 2018, Santo Amaro´s church held a 1day workshop for children aged 4 to 6, 7 to 10 and 11 to 13 years, with the motto: “My God is never wrong”. There were 54 children excited to spend the day with their brothers and sisters.Why we used this motto? In Brazil unfortunately the gender ideology movement is becoming big and big and at school the teachers are telling the children that they can be what they want, if you are a boy you can be a girl and if you are a girl you can be a boy. They are confusing the mind of the children to believe that God can fail and believe in a lie.All the lectures were focused on showing God´s ideal and what he had planned for us. We explained about how the gender ideology movement are planning to destroy a family, the family that God desired, by telling children that you weren’t born a boy or girl, you can be what you want.So, the Children learned to say no to the gender ideology movement because they are sons and daughters of God, they are precious, and they know that God is never wrong!After all lectures, it was time for games. Now the kids were ready for competition and at the end we had a winning team. To celebrate the workshop, we had cake and each kid also wrote what they did during the day.We thank all our lecturers, staffs and also the parents that believed in our team to do a good job!!! Say no to gender ideology! Our God is never wrong!last_img read more

The latest on the city’s restaurants scene.* Photo by Joel VeakThe next time you’re picking out lunch, scrutinizing the craft beer selection, or eating one too many apple cider donuts at the Boston Public Market, keep an eye out for chef Jose Duarte.Duarte has been involved with the market since it was in planning stages, and he makes regular visits there now to find local products to feature at his nearby restaurant, the sustainable, standout Taranta, he says. From the tiramisu made with Stillman’s Farm’s eggs, to soups garnished with Q’s Nuts, it is easy to see Duarte’s enthusiasm for local food on his Italian-Peruvian menu.“The market is a great opportunity for chefs to connect a little bit more with these producers, to help them showcase their products,” Duarte says.That’s why he’s partnering with the market this month to launch a new Signature Chef Series, an exhibition of Boston chefs and local products from the Public Market. The Series will be run by the Trustees, Massachusetts’s largest conservation and preservation nonprofit.On Tuesday, February 28, Duarte will be the first chef to lead a cooking demonstration and a six-course meal at the Kitchen at the Boston Public Market. The series will continue with dinners by chef Carl Dooley of the Table at Season to Taste on April 13, and chef Matthew Jennings of Townsman on May 13.In an effort to highlight the versatility of the products at the Public Market, each course will feature at least one ingredient from market vendors. All six courses will also be paired with a New England beer or wine.“In my menu, I tried to use some of the market’s ingredients, but also introduce some of my own ingredients,” Duarte says. “The idea is to showcase a little bit of what I am.”What exactly is on that menu, you ask? Well, Duarte’s not totally sure. He won’t finalize his menu until the day of the dinner, when he plans to browse the market and simply plan around the ingredients that look best.Duarte can guarantee that diners will get to experience his signature Peruvian-Italian style. He plans on serving causa, a traditional Peruvian potato dish, as one of the courses, and Peruvian peppers and herbs will be sprinkled throughout the meal.However, Duarte is perhaps most excited for the discussions that will occur during his demonstration. A sustainable food aficionado, Duarte loves to raise awareness of the importance of eating mindfully.“Sustainability is a process,” Duarte says. “For me, it’s a way of being.”Signature Chef Series with Jose Duarte, $200, Tuesday, February 28, 6-9 p.m., the Kitchen at the Boston Public Market, 100 Hanover St., Boston, thetrustees.org.last_img read more

Bicyclists Installed a Ghost Bike Called for Funding After a Fatal HitandRun

first_imgBicyclists Installed a “Ghost Bike,” Called for Funding After a Fatal Hit-and-Run Activists are asking for millions for Vision Zero after the death of biker Rick Archer. Around 300 people here already for Rick. We mourn his passing. We demand safer streets. #BosPoli #MaPoli #RideForRicky #VisionZero pic.twitter.com/eJt8ZCF8bI— Adam Greenberg (@pragmactivist) May 10, 2017Hundreds of bicyclists gathered Wednesday at the site of a fatal hit-and-run that killed a biker in Back Bay, where they installed a “Ghost Bike” in his memory.The crowd, a chunk of Boston’s close-knit biking community, installed a bicycle painted white at the corner of Commonwealth and Clarendon, in tribute to 29-year-old Rick Archer, who died of his injuries after he was struck by a car Sunday, April 30.Activists left the ceremony and biked to City Hall, where a meeting of the City Council was underway, to call for more funding for the city’s Vision Zero program. The initiative, led in Boston by the Walsh administration, seeks to eliminate fatalities on the city’s streets. Its most high-profile accomplishment was to advocate for a lower default speed limit of 25 miles per hour, and it also focuses on improvements at intersections and busy roads frequented by bikers and pedestrians.$3.1 million is budgeted for Vision Zero, which bicyclists say isn’t nearly enough.Here’s their proposal, as outlined on the Boston Cyclists’ Union’s website:Increase the capital budget for Vision Zero from $3.1 million in FY17 to $12 million in FY18.Increase the capital budget for the Strategic Bicycle Network Project from $900,000 in FY17 to $4 million in FY18.Increase the capital budget for Transportation Planning from $200,000 in FY17 to $800,000 in FY18.Increase the operating budget for Transportation Department Policy and Planning from $1,074,431 in FY17 to $2 million in FY18. 000 All of these ppl are about to crash a @CityOfBoston transportation funding hearing to #DemandMore.It’s on.#RideForRicky pic.twitter.com/oCUOBybXAj— Jonathan Fertig (@rightlegpegged) May 10, 2017Scores of them reportedly packed the hearing room as well as two overflow rooms, and the Boston Cyclists’ Union said councilors were receptive.So much support from @BOSCityCouncil.

Fifteen were pedestrians.Also on Wednesday, a suspect in the hit-and-run was arraigned on a charge of leaving the scene of an accident causing death.

Grillos Pickles and NBA Icon Patrick Ewing Made a Sneaker

first_img By Scott Kearnan· Food Trends Grillo’s Pickles and NBA Icon Patrick Ewing Made a Sneaker The Boston company and Cambridge-rooted basketball legend have teamed up to create a pickle-inspired shoe.

The latest on the city’s restaurants scene.*center_img Behold the majesty of “The Pickle” sneaker, created by Boston-based Grillo’s Pickles and Ewing Athletics. / Photo providedWhat do the Boston-based makers of Grillo’s Pickles and Cambridge-raised Basketball Hall of Famer Patrick Ewing have in common? If you answered, “They just collaborated on a new, limited-edition, pickle-inspired sneaker,” well–you’re lying, because no one in their right mind would actually think of that. And yet, here we are.Yes. Boston-based Grillo’s Pickles and Cambridge-raised Patrick Ewing have, indeed, collaborated on a new, limited-edition, pickle-inspired sneaker. The kicks were released this week by Ewing Athletics, retail for $140, and will surely be coveted by those at a very unique intersection within the Venn Diagram of “sneaker heads” and “discerning fans of crunchy, vinegary snacks.” The design is dubbed simply, “The Pickle.” Elegant. Artful.The Hulk-green high-tops nod to Grillo’s ingredients, according to a press release: “Each sneaker features clear soles to represent Grillo’s hand packed jars, green suede as an ode to the organic dill, and green leather, which exemplifies the brand’s crunchy cucumbers. The white shoe laces also represent the fresh, California-grown garlic.” Do you hear that? Michelangelo could never.Strutting in these sneakers is also a way to show your pride in the local pickle-maker. Grillo’s sunglasses-wearing mascot, Sam the Pickle Man, is embroidered on the back of the shoe, chilling in his lounge chair. On the insole, you’ll find an image of the original Grillo’s pickle cart.Grillo’s mascot Sam the Pickle Man adorns the heel. / Photo providedWhich brings us to an actually poignant, full-circle aspect of this partnership between two locally-rooted legends in their (extremely different) fields. Grillo’s founder Travis Grillo started selling pickle spears out of a wooden street cart in Boston Common in 2008, “after missing out on an opportunity to be a sneaker designer at Nike,” according to a statement in the release. Now, plastic containers of his pickles are in grocery stores around the country, and the artist-turned-entrepreneur finally got to make his shoes–with an NBA icon, no less.Ewing, born in Jamaica, moved to Cambridge when he was 12 and kickstarted his storied basketball career as a high school standout at Cambridge Rindge and Latin School; he went on to win two gold medals in the Olympics. He has yet to launch a pickle company, but there’s still time.On the other hand, you won’t have forever to snatch up the limited-edition sneaker. You can buy them here. Or, for the same amount of money, you could invest in about two dozen quarts of Grillo’s addictive snacks. The choice is yours. Quite a pickle, isn’t it? Print 41042last_img read more

Emmy Squared Wants to Bring Its DetroitStyle Pizza to Boston and Beyond

first_img Detroit-style pizza at Emmy Squared. The New York-based chain is eyeing a Boston-area expansion, among other cities. / Photos courtesy of Pizza Loves Emily GroupA popular Brooklyn pizzeria that serves an uncommon style of pie is considering a Boston-area expansion. Emmy Squared, which specializes in rectangular, thick, and cheesy Detroit-style pizza, is targeting 2020 to potentially open a location in Cambridge or Boston, Eater Boston reports.Emmy Squared debuted in Williamsburg in 2016, as the second concept from Emily and Matt Hyland of New York’s famed wood-fired pizza place, Emily. The separated couple, who met while in college in Rhode Island, now have two Emmy Squared outposts in New York, one in Nashville and another on the way to that southern city; and two Emily Pizzas in New York. Matt Hyland and the Pizza Loves Emily Group is also behind Violet, an East Village restaurant inspired by New England—specifically, the grilled pizzas at Providence’s Al Forno.At Emmy Squared, the main event is gourmet, Detroit-style pizza. Hallmarks of the style are its “square” shape (that’s how it’s called, even though its typically baked in a rectangular sheet pan); focaccia crust and crispy cheese right to the edge; and sauce drizzled on top of the cheese. Emmy Squared uses a blend of mozzarella and ricotta, and toppings like pepperoni, Calabrian chiles, something called the “Trufflleist mushroom cream,” pineapple, and more. It does some white pizzas, and some topped with a house-made vodka sauce. It also serves a much-beloved double-stack burger called Le Big Matt, a chicken parm sandwich, salads, and more. About 80 percent of the menu is on at every location, with 20 percent locally exclusive items, Eater reports.Pizza Loves Emily Group’s Nashville-based partner, Howard Greenstone, recently told Eater New York that Emmy Squared hopes to open four new restaurants in 2019. The second Tennessee location is opening in two weeks, reports the restaurant group’s marketing director, Samantha Ullrich, and a Philadelphia location is “just around the corner.” Pizza Loves Emily is actively seeking potential locations for Emmy Squared around Washington, D.C. But then, it could be Boston’s turn.“Once we’ve gotten our feet on the ground in those markets we’d love to start our search in the Boston area,” Ullrich says.Greenstone told Eater that Cambridge might be a good choice for the company, thanks to all of the local college students and recent graduates—prime pizza customers. He also said, though, that the company finds it most efficient to open more than one restaurant in a given area, so Boston could very well get its own. Emmy Squared’s parent company is seeking spaces between 2,000 and 2,500 square feet, for 75-100-seat restaurants. “We want to be patient” to find the right locations, “but we also want to have a footprint up and down the East Coast,” Greenstone said.Bostonians will certainly have to be patient to get Detroit-style pizza at their own Emmy Squared. Curious to try this unique pie? Fenway restaurant Tapestry has served it as a special, and so has the Coolidge Corner outpost of Otto Pizza. Eater Boston also reports that a restaurant called Avenue Kitchen + Bar is getting ready to open in Somerville with Detroit-style pie on the menu. emmysquared.com. 5/17/2019, 4:34 p.m. Print Restaurant News Emmy Squared Wants to Bring Its Detroit-Style Pizza to Boston (and Beyond) The growing, New York-based restaurant group has Cambridge on its shortlist of desired locations.
