(Photo courtesy of the Compton Magic) Updated to correct spelling of Dikymbe Martin The Corona based Compton Magic put a memorable end to the summer basketball season by winning two divisional titles at the Adidas Super 64 tournament last weekend in Las Vegas. And this week, the club had one of those title teams ranked No. 1 in the country. Compton Magic's 2016 15 and under team, which includes three Inland area locals, defeated Team Bibby Red, 71 66, for the title in the elite Championship division bracket and subsequently earned the No. Compton Magic's Select 16U team, which includes three Inland area locals, defeated Pennsylvania Pump N Run, 63 56 for the title in the elite Championship division bracket and subsequently earned a No. The Super 64 was one of three major AAU (or travel ball) events happening concurrently last weekend to close out the summer NCAA coach/scout viewing/evaluation periods. As Cal Hi Sports' Ronnie Flores noted in his detailed review of the weekend, the California's Class of 2015 swept the 16 and under age division titles in each of the three tournaments the Super 64, the Las Vegas Classic, and the Fab 48. Long Beach based Pangos Elite Silver won the Fab 48 16U Invitational title, Los Angeles based California Supreme Elite won the 16U Platinum Division at the Las Vegas Classic. The Magic Select roster includes Corona Centennial junior point guard Sedrick Barefield, Temecula Great Oak junior point guard Latrelle Franklin, and Hemet Tahquitz 6 foot 8 junior forward Nike Pete. It also includes sharp shooter Rex Pflueger (Santa Ana Mater Dei) and 6 7 wing Cameron Walker (Santa Maria Righetti), who shared co MVP honors. The Magic 2016 roster includes Dikymbe Martin (Riverside North), Jordan Griffin (Centennial) and Christian Gray (Corona Santiago). Martin, a 6 foot point guard who started as a freshman on North's CIF Southern Section divisional championship team in the winter, earned MVP in Vegas. Etop Udo Ema, interviewed prior to the rankings release, said this was not the first time his venerable Compton Magic program has won more than one title in a single event but "not a tournament of this size. Not a national one like that." Despite that, the longtime Magic director and coach said the results didn't come as a surprise because both of those teams had spent the better part of the spring and summer playing "up" in the 17U division. "I knew they had a pretty good chance," Udo Ema said. Dikymbe Martin, who started on Riverside North's CIF championship team as a freshman during the winter, was the MVP for the Compton Magic 15 under team at the Adidas Super 64 last weekend in Las Vegas. (Photo courtesy of the Compton Magic) That the 15U team won is a credit to the uber talented Martin, as much as anyone, Udo Ema said. Leaf from San Diego, who had scored 40 points in the team's last national event in Indianapolis, when the Magic went through a 42 0 Indiana Elite team on the way to a championship game appearance. "For Dikymbe to carry us those last three games without TJ (was) major," Udo Ema said. "Because (Leaf is) a huge piece. I mean a BIG piece." On the Select team, Udo Ema praised the three Inland representatives: "Sedrick had a great event. His (college) interest is going through the roof. . Latrelle has really come on. This year (he is an) absolute necessity. His energy, his quickness. He's our spark off the bench. Pete, too. . That team has a chance to be the best in the country." Udo Ema had predicted top five rankings for both teams. The 16U Select team jumped from 16th in the previous ranking and was slotted below only Arkansas Wings (Maumelle, Arkansas) and We R 1 ECE/NJABC (Trenton, New Jersey). The 15U 2016 team jumped up from No. 11 and was slotted above Team Penny (Memphis, Tennessee) which won the Fab 48. Franklin, who started at point guard as a sophomore and helped lead Great Oak to the school's first league title in the winter, reflected on his most recent championship run. "I knew I prepared too hard prior to this tournament to not perform as I should,'' Franklin said. "Winning the championship was a great feeling as it was an all around team victory! Everyone stepped up in at least one of the games, including myself, to get to the championship. . This was a great experience not only for myself but for the organization as well, and it feels great to end on a fantastic note. " ADD MAGIC The third Magic team that competed in Vegas, CM Elite, included three Inland locals Ethan Alvano (Corona), Deshon Taylor (North) and Jason Dickson (Santiago). That team made the elite eight, losing to the eventual tournament runner up while missing two Division 1 recruit bigs, Udo Ema said. "I had a great Vegas experience and tournament," Alvano said. "Personally, I focused mainly on getting better defensively, keeping guys in front and getting better defensively overall. I also worked on running the team, playing point guard. As a team, we did well but I feel could have done better. We got bounced in the elite eight to a good Milwaukee Rebel team, but overall I feel I grew as a player getting ready for the upcoming high school season with Corona." CM Elite earned an honorable mention ranking in the 17U division by indihoops. AROUND THE RIM Vista based Gamepoint's 15U Black team finished the spring/summer run 35 3 after being knocked out of the Fab 48 by a team from Miami, Fla., in the elite eight on a 3 point buzzer beater, thus ending a memorable run. "The best it's ever been," said 6 4 2016 F Riley Schaefer of Temecula Valley who averaged a team high 15.7 points per game during the tournament. "Not just because of the national attention and ranking and winning, but also because all that brought college coaches to games and got us all looks." Speaking of looks, Schaefer said he is planning an unofficial visit to UC Irvine next week. .

Maybe an accessory here or there princess hat, wand, clown nose but mostly we just threw stuff together, going more for the spirit of the thing rather than an exact replica. Once I wore a trash bag and a side ponytail and went as a punk rocker. Now it seems like all you can get are cheaply made, sexed up versions of the classics witches in miniskirts and the like or branded crap that sidesteps not only the fun of making your own costume but the fun of even coming up with your own idea.

Big Discount For Big Order Nike Kobe 9 Low EM XDR Prelude,Air Jordan 10 Bulls Over Broadway Amusement Parks are great family fun. Right? Well, yes they sure can be. But in reality there are lots of things that can turn the whole experience sour. The key to a successful family trip to the amusement park is planning and preparation. There are a number of things that Mom and Dad can do before the family leaves that will make a big difference. Extremes of weather can ruin the trip if you aren't prepared. Hot, cold or wet be sure to bring dress yourselves and the kids appropriately. The more comfortable your clothing, the more fun everyone will have. And it won't hurt to keep an extra set of clothes and shoes in the car as a backup. Especially if rain is expected. And along with the proper dress, take careful consideration of the shoes you will wear. It's pretty much a given that a day or two or more in a major theme park means a LOT of walking. Sandals are great for the beach but they won't cut it here. This is also not the time to be breaking in a new pair of shoes. Make sure you and the kids are wearing shoes that you know is going to be comfortable for extended walking. Walking around and standing in line under a blazing sun can be quite brutal. Please use sunscreen liberally and cover up with a hat. And make sure everyone stays hydrated with lots of water. Once you are at the amusement park, now it's time to keep those kids happy. Yes, happy kids mean happy parents. But don't push it. If there are specific rides that the children don't want to go on, that's ok. Never force them. They are there to have fun and what looks like fun to you may be scary for certain children. Respect their feelings. Before the kids spend a long time waiting in a line for a ride, make sure they know what the ride is really like. The name of the ride may sound really cool, only to turn into something a little to scary when it comes time to step aboard. If the child seems hesitant but goes on the ride anyway, try to watch the child throughout the ride. If necessary, alert the attendant to stop the ride. If the kids are old enough to go off on their own, give them very specific instructions about when and where you will meet up. Make sure they have a map of the theme park. Clearly mark the map and make sure that they understand how to read it. Have a backup meeting place for emergencies. Before getting into a long line, take the kids to the rest room. Enough said. Don't try to run the show. Let the kids have a major say in what they do and when. Sure, you can keep an eye on the big picture and help out with major decisions that affect the whole family but let the kid's feel like they have some choices. If they want to rest, get something to eat or maybe ride the same ride a second time, let them have their way. Planning and preparation are important to a successful family outing to an amusement park. But keep it within reason. Schedules can be useful. But remember, this is supposed to be fun. Keeping things loose and flexible will help keep things fun for the kids. Nike Kobe 9 Low EM XDR Prelude Kim Il Sung was the first president of North Korea after World War II, in 1945. His appointment by the Soviets demonstrated exactly how little they cared about the Koreans, because Kim wasn't very Korean at all (he had only eight years of formal schooling, and all of it in China he spoke so little Korean that he had to be coached during his first speech). The Soviets didn't realize he was nuts until he started the Korean War, which accomplished nothing beyond destroying half the country. And then, the man went truly apeshit. He told his people that during WWII, he had taken part in more than 100,000 battles over 15 years. That computes to roughly 20 battles a day. Oh, and WWII lasted only six years. Do we even need to mention that in reality he hardly saw any combat in WWII? He also said that he , believing himself to be some sort of Korean Jesus. Kim then made 20 different "Kim Il Sung Badges" for people to wear, so that different classes could wear different badges. He had someone write a "Song of General Kim Il Sung." The first two bars were used as intervals in Korean radio and television, and in 2005, the Korean space program blasted that song into space, giving warning to aliens about the terribly contagious stupidity we have on Earth. In other words, he came up with the North Korean tradition of making propaganda a priority above food, education and sanity. But don't worry, he got what was coming to him . What happened to him? Oh, wait. Kim died a fat and happy man in 1994. A 10 day mourning period ensued, and hundreds of thousands of brainwashed Koreans came from all over the country to cry dramatically at the body. Thousands committed suicide, as obviously, there was no more reason to live. In 1998, Kim Jong Il posthumously made his father the Eternal President of the Republic. Clearly, he could never fill those shoes. 1. Mao Zedong Chairman of the Communist Party of China Mao Zedong became leader of the People's Republic of China when it was founded in 1949. We previously explained how he was responsible for one of the most disastrous policies in world history, the "Great Leap Forward." Basically, it entailed pulling all of his people off of farming to have them try to mill steel in their backyards instead. (Note: You cannot make steel in your back yard.) Millions starved. That is, unfortunately, the tip of the Mao Zedong crazy iceberg. We know the people in this image are mostly madmen, but check out that dude with the crazy long goatee. What a straight up badass. In the wake of that disaster, Mao's power was considerably shaken, so much so that two of his underlings, Liu Shaoqi and Deng Xiaoping, were able to wrest power from him. This, of course, infuriated Mao, who promptly began another disastrous campaign: the Cultural Revolution, which literally was a war against smart people. Under the pretext that bourgeois elements were permeating a classless society, Mao banished his political opponents, such as Liu and Deng, to the countryside. Soon, however, Mao's definition of political opponents stretched to encompass "anyone who is smart." Universities were closed down, and professors and students were sent to the countryside to be "re educated" through labor. The word "intellectual" became an insult. The only genius was declared to be Mao himself (people were taught to repeat the phrase, "Chairman Mao is a genius, everything the Chairman says is greatly true; one of the Chairman's words will override the meaning of ten thousand of ours.") "Also, his image absolutely will not end up littering the floors of vintage shops worldwide." And then there was Lei Feng. He was a completely unremarkable soldier who died in an unremarkable fashion after getting hit by a telephone pole. But Mao arbitrarily decided to declare him the nation's greatest hero. Various staged photos supposedly depicted him doing good deeds, and stories of his heroics were inserted into textbooks in every school. A diary belonging to him was "found," and it contained nothing but flowery praises for Mao. Doves and submachine guns. China gets it. Then Mao recruited high school students to his cause, calling them the Red Guards. Mao tasked these teenagers with correcting the bourgeois elements in society and effectively gave them a legal blank check to do it by whatever means they chose. This went exactly how you'd expect they started ransacking people's houses and beating them if they were found to own anything even remotely Western, . As he got older, Mao started worrying about his own mortality and subscribing to the Taoist belief that having sex with virgins lengthens one's lifespan. Young girls were brought from all over the country to help him on this monumental task. Mao often had fivesomes or sixsomes and watched nude underwater ballet shows. Even Enver Hoxha bows to Mao's monumental crazy. He still died in 1976. We have to be honest, we're kind of surprised that didn't work.
