Brad Pitt stars as Billy Beane, a general manager of the Oakland A 's, forces to reinvent his team on a tight budget, Beane has to work hard to outsmart the richer clubs. The onetime jock teams with Ivy League grad Peter Brand (Jonah Hill) in an unlikely partnership, recruiting bargain players that the scouts call flawed, but all of whom have an ability to get on base, score runs, and win games. To me it 's more than baseball, it 's a revolution - one that challenges old school traditions and puts Beane in the crosshairs of those who say he 's tearing out the heart and soul of the game.

Elorde and “Papa” Sarreal were thrilled at the thought that dzHP would broadcast Elorde’s fight on radio which began with the June 1, Oriental and Pacific Boxing Federation lightweight title in which Elorde scored a 9th round TKO over Japan’s Tsunetomi Miyamoto Then came the back-to back knock down, drag-out brawls with the rugged Love Allotey of Ghana who, in some instances reminded us of World featherweight champion Sandy
The evil within humans energies when one fears to accept their actions, has desire for power and pride People will do anything to experience the feeling of power, even things that are inhumane.

The gladiator and their status amongst the people is an enigma. Here was a man (who was not generally Roman) representing the people, and managing to earn their respect by demonstrating courageous fighting tactics.

The hard work put into boxing allowed Tyson to rise above the conditions that he was forced to survive in. Malcolm Gladwell begins his novel of his belief behind the success of Outliers—The Story of Success,by using the word ‘outlier,’ as a descriptor to identify remarkable individuals in societies that have accomplished extraordinary heights of success. Gladwell defines an outlier as: “1: something that is situated away from or classed differently from a main or related body, and 2: a statistical observation that is markedly different in value from the others of the sample”.
