Nelson Mandela A humanitarian Icon and leader who inspired millions around the world died today. He was 95 years.
Former president Mandela, battled health issues in recent years. He was hospitalized numerous times fur a lung infection. The world lost one of the greatest men today. I am honored to have lived during his lifetime. R.I.P
“As I walked out the door toward the gate that would lead to my freedom, I knew if I didn’t leave my bitterness and hatred behind, I’d still be in prison,” Mandela said after he was freed in in 1990.
Just days before the bout, at the media workout event, the combatants had a lot to say. Here are the memorable quotes:
Paulie Malignaggi, Two-Time and Two-Division World Champion
“I expect the best Zab Judah. [I expect] a Zab Judah who is going to be fighting for his boxing career. I feel the same way.
“If we saw each other in the gym, we would try to knock each other out. There’s no love taps. With this much on the line you can bet we’re both going to have it out on Saturday.
“You have to be stubborn to have longevity. One or two losses can quickly demote you to a second level fighter, but you have to have the stubbornness to keep going.
“There’s a lot of emotion, but at the end of the day we gotta do what we gotta do to win.
“I want that Broner vs. Maidana winner, first things first. I have to get through Saturday night.
“A win over Zab Judah is what I want for Christmas. That suffices.
“It’s exciting every time you’re part of a big promotion, it’s not a world championship fight, but it still has that feel and that vibe. On Saturday night it will feel like it’s a championship fight in Barclays Center.
”We’re both motivated to win, but when you’re at this level anything can get you motivated for a fight like this.
”If you’re not motivated for this, you better check your pulse to make sure you’re alive.”
The media may group us together as Latins/Latinos, but why should we settle for something so limiting? We are Mexican, Mexican American, Chicano, Puerto Rican, Cuban, Argentinian, Bolivian, Chilean, Colombian, Dominican,
Nicaraguan, Salvadoran, Spaniard, Venezuelan and a host of other unique cultures. Our strength – and our attraction – is our diversity. We strive to present this in every issue.
When we migrate we do not leave our culture at the border. What is internal is eternal. The veneer of assimilation allows us to borrow new ideas when they benefit us…we adapt as we must to make our way…and we struggle with the conflict this creates. We make no apologies for this in our articles.
As the new “majority”, it is incumbent on us to introduce and inculcate the best of our views into the national mindset and even in ongoing global discussions. We come in many shapes and shades. Now is the time for us to be heard. This magazine proudly presents our voices.

The San Francisco 49ers entered Week 13 as eight point favorites over the visiting St. Louis Rams. At the very least this was going to be a lop-sided contest between the Rams’ 25th-ranked offense versus the 49ers’ 6th-ranked defense. What was not mentioned was that San Francisco’s offense was actually ranked below the Rams offense in yards per game.
In the first quarter, the 49ers’ defense proved an impenetrable wall for the Rams’ offense and in return the Rams’ 18th ranked defense allowed the 49ers just two field goals.
The second quarter would have played along in a similar fashion were it not for the return of Michael Crabtree. Finally healed from a tear to his Achilles tendon in May, Crabtree broke a 60-yard reception which set up a Frank Gore 3-yard push to the end zone (as part of his 42-yard day). A field goal was all the Rams’ offense could manage.
The second half began with what looked like a replay of the first. Both teams were held to single field goals in the third quarter. But the fourth quarter held a treasure which will go down into the Niner’s history book – Vernon Davis’ vaulting of the Rams’ Janoris Jenkins on his way to a 20-yard gain and a game-sealing touchdown.
Colin Kaepernick went 19 for 28 for 275 yards on the day thanks to the hands of receivers Anquan Boldin, Vernon Davis and Michael Crabtree. And lest it go unmentioned, credit is due the Rams’ quarterback Kellen Clemens for his last minute, 92-yard drive which found the end zone with 18 seconds remaining.
