The Whore of Akron: One Man's Search for the Soul of LeBron James

"If there has been a chance for me to come to Cleveland and people enthusiasts welcomed me again, that'd be a superb tale. "—Lebron James

Scott Raab is a final vestige of Gonzo Journalism in an period while sanitary decorum reigns. Crude yet warmhearted, poetic yet raving, Raab has chronicled—at GQ and Esquire—everything from nights out with the likes of Tupac and Mickey Rourke to an ethical research into Holocaust death-camp safeguard Ivan the bad to the rebuilding of the area exchange middle website, however the ebook you carry on your arms is neither a narrative nor a task: The Whore of Akron is the fabricated from lifelong pain, and a venture sure with the that means of lifestyles.

Raab sat within the reduce bowl of Cleveland Stadium on December 27, 1964, while the Browns defeated the Colts for the NFL international Championship—the final activities name the declining urban has gained. He nonetheless contains his price ticket stub anyplace he is going, correctly tucked inside of a Ziploc bag. the distinction of that triumph is a simple factor to forget—each iteration born in Cleveland is one other new release faraway from that victory; a whole fan base "whose day-by-day bread has without end tasted of ash. "

LeBron James was once alleged to switch all that. a local son of Akron, he used to be already global recognized by means of the age of seventeen, had already graced the canopy of activities Illustrated, used to be already worthy $90 million to Nike. He gave the impression of a miracle heaven-sent through God to rework Cleveland's wasting methods. That the Cavaliers drafted him, the place of origin prodigy, with the 1st choose of the 2003 draft, appeared not anything in need of future. yet after seven years—and nonetheless no parade down Euclid Avenue—he left. And he left in a fashion that appeared designed to curve the knife: asserting his stream to South seashore on a nationally televised ESPN construction with a sly identify ("The Decision") that echoed fifty years of Cleveland activities futility.

Out of James's treachery grew a monster. Raab, a fifty-nine-year-old, 350-pound, Jewish Santa Claus with a prime Wahoo tattoo, might undergo witness to LeBron's each flow, and in doing so could act because the eyes and ears of Cleveland itself. (He didn't maintain this intentions a mystery and was once briskly banned by means of the Miami warmth. )

The Whore of Akron is an indictment of a traitorous athlete and the tale of Raab's hilarious, profane (and profound) quest to bare the "wee jewel-box" of LeBron James's very soul.

Research into the relationship between dictionary use and vocabulary learning is the most recent development in this field. Laufer and Hill (2000) studied the lookup strategies of learners using an electronic dictionary and their influence on immediate word retention. Following up on a series of studies executed by Laufer and her collaborators, Chen (2011) compared the relevance of various types of dictionaries for vocabulary learning, testing word retention at the end of the experimental session and two weeks later.

Nielsen proposes that dictionaries should have three components: a structured database; access to several dictionaries via an interface; and a search engine to mediate between database and dictionaries. One database, which could be monolingual or bilingual, can serve multiple dictionaries and give the user just the information they need for a particular task. He then illustrates how this is achieved in the online English/Danish accounting dictionaries. The electronic medium allows for a dynamic approach to the access and presentation of lexicographic information; for example, several styles of definition can be provided for different types of user (expert vs non-expert, native speaker vs learner), or in two or more languages.
