RPV away, off the stern of the USS Iowa in 1987. (credit: US Navy photo) Today is Memorial Day in the US, and we wanted to recognize the Ars readers and staff who've served by resurfacing another military memory from our resident Navy man, Sean Gallagher. Sean served aboard the USS Iowa , and here he recalls how he contributed to drone warfare with chocolate chip cookies (seriously). This piece originally ran in May 2015. Two weeks ago, I made a pilgrimage to the Port of Los Angeles to visit the ship that played a central part in setting me on the path that put me where I am today—the battleship USS Iowa . And as I walked toward the Big Stick at its new home in San Pedro, a ship's boat sitting on the pier alongside her triggered a recollection of one of the most memorable episodes in my tour aboard Iowa: a night in late September of 1987 when I left my somewhat minor mark on the history of drone warfare with a box of chocolate chip cookies.

It's enough for the Los Angeles Lakers to take him near the end of the first round above, hoping he can one day fill out his frame and enter the rotation, if not take a starting spot. Sindarius Thornwell , G, South Carolina South Carolina's Sindarius Thornwell falls into the same trap as Bellhe had a strong senior season, but the fact he had one is a problem for NBA teams in the first half of the opening round. Thornwell is already 22 years old and only weighs in at 6'5" and 210 pounds. Those issues aside, he's in the fringe discussion because he had such a strong performance in the NCAA Tournament, where he posted 24 or more points in four consecutive Big Dance games while helping the Gamecocks shine as a Cinderella. This situation isn't lost on Thornwell , who has openly stressed how he can help teams right out of the gates. I'm not a lottery pick, but I feel like I'm a lottery player, Thornwell said, according to The State 's Dwayne McLemore .

Competitive imbalance is an unavoidable reality in the star-driven NBA." " Hibernating bears have experienced more suspense," the Chicago Tribune 's Jerry Brewer quipped. "Thank God for the NHL playoffs," TNT's Charles Barkley said after Golden State's 121-95 Game 4 elimination victory over the Utah Jazz in the second round (via Sportsnet's Michael Grange ). "That's what I'd be watching in the back instead of these blowouts." "Dynasties aren't new and aren't badthe [Los Angeles] Lakers and the Celtics dominating the 1980s was fine, and the [Chicago] Bulls taking over the '90s is still historic, and who cares if the Lakers and the [San Antonio] Spurs won most of the titles in the 2000s," SB Nation's Tim Cato wrote. "We had a good time, didn't we? "But on the other hand, while dominance can be enjoyable to watch, it would be nicer if the Warriors and Cavaliers' trips to their third straight Finals against each other showed even a morsel of entertainment or uncertainty, not this sure thing we've seen coming since last August.

Blade Runner , among its many other achievements, stands as quite possible the only 35-year-old science-fiction movie whose visual effects still hold up. Director Ridley Scott and his collaborators' thoroughly realized vision of 2019 Los Angeles rewards a seemingly infinite number of viewings, revealing something new to the viewer each and every time. Yet the sheer amount to look at can also distract from all there is to listen to. For a visual medium, movies stand or fall to a surprising extent on the quality and design of their sound, and if Blade Runner remains convincing and compelling, it does so in large part not because of what see when we watch it, but what we hear. This in addition to all it makes us think about, some of which the video essayist Evan Puschak, better known as Nerdwriter , explained in " Blade Runner : The Other Side of Modernity.

Some women take up kickboxing to blow off some steam following a breakup. But Kourtney Kardashian took a different approach! On last night's episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians , the scorned mother of three let off some steam while swinging an ex as part of a bizarre test set up by scheming little sister Khloe , 32. Sick of Kourtney's extreme indecisiveness and flaky behavior, Khloe called the Los Angeles Fire Department to assist her in teaching the 38-year-old a lesson. PHOTOS: 20 Most Ridiculous Moments From The Kardashians' Reality Shows The firefighters took the sisters and overbearing momager Kris , 61, to a (very fake) burning home and gave Kourtney a series of decisions in order to save the day. At one point, they told her to break down a roof with an ax. At first, the reality star put little effort into the task. But then Khloe put some fire into her swing with some words of encouragement.

The Rockies are off to an NL-best 33-19 start, and perhaps the biggest reason for that unexpected success has been the performances of rookie pitchers Antonio Senzatela, Kyle Freeland, German Marquez and Jeff Hoffman. They're not the only ones seeing significant contributions from a rookie, though, as the Los Angeles Dodgers have gotten a big boost from top prospect Cody Bellinger. And we can't forget about the Arizona Diamondbacks, who are 10 games over .500 for the first time since the end of the 2011 season and eight wins ahead of their pace from a year ago when they started 23-29. Under the category of things we already know that are still fun to talk about, Giancarlo Stanton has a decent amount of power. Here's the latest bomb that sparked that graphic: In one of the funnier moments so far in 2017, Rays outfielder Steven Souza Jr. made what I guess we'll call a valiant effort on this diving attempt: What have you got for us, Statcast? And finally, I'll leave you with this GIF of Twins pitcher Jose Berrios, because I've watched it at least 100 times and you should too.

com reporter A. Sherrod Blakely , Ainge will take aim at landing a game-changer in the frontcourt. Sources point to Gordon Hayward and Blake Griffin . However, indicated in the report, there are expectations that both players will re-sign with their 2016 squads, the Utah Jazz and Los Angeles Clippers, respectively. Now we can reopen talks about Carmelo Anthony , who's at odds with Jackson in New York. Paul George may also look to win outside of Indiana. Meanwhile, there's still uncertainty surrounding Jimmy Butler's future with the Chicago Bulls. For the Celtics, assume all options remain viable until clubs lock up their talented swingmen and wing players. Based on Ainge 's reported desire to balance his guard-dominant roster, expect Boston to work the phones for the big names who may need a change of scenery. New York Knicks Focusing on Donovan Mitchell What do the Knicks need most? Jackson can select a point guard, a versatile scorer to take over after Anthony's expected trade or a solid defender on and off the ball to fill the team's roster voids.

Perhaps we are all talking the same language, all looking for answers to the same questions, as we seek new ways to live more harmonious, balanced and self-aware lives.

The Chicago Cubs started the 2016 season with a sparkling 25-6 record before ultimately overcoming 108 years of frustration with a World Series title. This year's version has the 25 in the win column but an uglier 24 in the loss column. "Please, go ahead and freak out," Cubs manager Joe Maddon said when asked about fans' concerns with his team's slower start, per Jesse Rogers of ESPN.com. "If you want to freak out, freak out." Rogers noted Maddon was trying to emphasize there is no panic in the clubhouse even if the Chicago faithful are feeling uneasy after the team's three-game sweep at the hands of the Los Angeles Dodgers . Reigning National League MVP Kris Bryant didn't seem particularly concerned with the team's place in the standings on May 28, either, per Rogers: "I don't see any reason to worry, especially given what we did last year. There is no need to worry.

Miami Heat president Pat Riley knows a little something about the greatest players in NBA history considering he coached Magic Johnson with the Los Angeles Lakers and helped bring LeBron James to Miami. Riley said Saturday he was impressed with James' seventh straight trip to the NBA Finals but urged fans not to forget Johnson's Showtime Lakers made the trip nine times in 12 years, per TMZ Sports . Riley and Johnson are close beyond just their connection as former player and coach. Johnson is the new Lakers president and said on ESPN Los Angeles he's talked to Riley as he moves into the front office (h/t Tom D'Angelo of the Palm Beach Post ). With the NBA Finals not starting until Thursday, there has been plenty of conversation comparing James to some of the all-time greats, most notably Michael Jordan since the King surpassed the North Carolina product in all-time playoff scoring during the Eastern Conference Finals.
