“This summer the WBC will hold its “Night of Champions 2010” event in Cardiff, Wales. The selection of the festival’s host country, as is well known, is due to Wales’s long and rich boxing history. In this article – subsequent to “The Luminaries of Welsh Boxing History: Part One” — Eastsideboxing continues its study of Wales’s boxing greats, focusing on the careers of Freddie Welsh, Dai Dower, Eddie Thomas, and Joe Erskine.” (Eastside Boxing).

where she continued to live and work, until her death in 2010. For over 60 years, Bourgeois worked across disciplines, producing sculptures, drawings, paintings and prints dealing with personal memory, emotion and the body. her work is currently on show at the 17th Biennale of Sydney.” (DesignBoom).

03. Grilled Pork Tenderloin with Herbed Cornmeal Crust

04. Beth Ann Fennelly’s Ode to Ten Sexy Books

“The ten steamiest moments in Southern literature were harder to find than I’d imagined, leading me to realize that Southern sex tends toward the obscene or disturbing (removing—then stealing—a woman’s prosthetic leg in a hay loft? Making whoopee with a watermelon?), but here are some contenders.” (Oxford American).
