"Rebuilding the Knicks is not going to be an easy task. They are missing a number of key pieces and are void of draft picks until 2018. Our next president will be 2 years into his next term before the Knicks draft a player again. Given the lack of draft picks, the Knicks will have to rely on free agency and smart trades to rebuild. The question remains, is that rebuilding around Anthony or without him."

Get rid of him and start over. It’s not Carmelo’s fault the entire team crumbled around him, but a potential max contract is an albatross.

Canadian Mining Groups, Activists Endorse Disclosure Framework - Risk & Compliance - WSJ
Canadian exploration and mining trade groups joined civil-society organizations in endorsing recommendations for the development of a payment disclosure standard for publicly traded mining companies in Canada.
Under the recommended framework, publicly traded mining companies in Canada would be required to disclose project-level payments to domestic and foreign governments. Large mining companies would have to disclose all payments above $100,000 Canadian dollars, while smaller “venture issuers” would disclose payments of more than C$10,000.

“By keeping us focused on ourselves and our individual happiness, [Do What You Love] distracts us from the working conditions of others while validating our own choices and relieving us from obligations to all who labor, whether or not they love it. It is the secret handshake of the privileged and a worldview that disguises its elitism as noble self-betterment. According to this way of thinking, labor is not something one does for compensation, but an act of self-love. If profit doesn’t happen to follow, it is because the worker’s passion and determination were insufficient. Its real achievement is making workers believe their labor serves the self and not the marketplace.”
