Gear Review: Regulator Gloves by Warrior Lacrosse
With lacrosse season at full throttle, we wanted to make sure you’d have the scoop on all the newest equipment, so we teamed up with Lacrosse Panda, Warrior Lacrosse and Brine Lacrosse to bring you a great line-up of Gear Reviews over the next two months!
Company: Warrior Lacrosse / Product: Regulator Gloves / Price: $174. 99
Warrior Lacrosse has been known to produce some high quality gloves, so when I received the Regulators I had high expectations. I knew I’d have to put them through the gauntlet, but would they rise to the occasion or crack under pressure?
The Regulators are Warrior’s lightest-weight high-performance gloves and weigh in at a whopping 7 oz. There are a ton of new features to this glove that add to its high quality performance, but I’ll get into those as the review goes on.
Right out of the packaging, I’m never too quick to judge a pair of gloves… I’ve had a couple pairs throughout my career where I thought they’d be terrible, but they ended up being my favorites (and vice versa). The Regulators do make a great first impression though – a very classy design, super light, and snug but not too snug.
By now, you’ve probably seen Drexel and the million other Warrior teams that are sporting custom Regulators this year… there is a reason for it. The Regulators come in several different colorways, and whether you choose one of the seven stock colors or go the custom route, you’re sure to look good. I’m not a big fan of all white stuff, but I’m still having a hard time letting go of these gloves.
4 Diamond Ventilation
The Regulator gloves have a unique four diamond design on the back that not only looks good, but is supposed to help with ventilation through the backhand. Warrior took a different route with their cuffs this time too, designing a much slimmer set of pads around the wrist of the glove. The other big feature that popped out to me was the palm of the glove – it is a one piece design with an added insert through the palm, probably to add a little extra durability.
No tape, no problem.
The very first time I put on these gloves, I felt like I had slipped my hand into a big dish of butter. It was amazing. There was no break-in time needed, and the overall feel of the palm and padding made me feel like I was cuddled up next to a fire with my favorite fleece blanket.
The palm is made of Warrior’s Axe Suede material, which is used in their high-end NHL gloves (talk about big time). I really noticed a difference with my grip on the stick. I’ve cut the palms out of several pairs of gloves, and it was definitely comparable to that feeling.
It’s hard to play great though when your hands are drenched in sweat. Warrior is using a Chill Wave liner, which is a material taken from cycling. It is designed to react with the sweat and cool you down, and it definitely reminds me of a Heat Gear or Dri-fit style material. I noticed a difference when playing in our Indoor Chumash games.
Finding out that a glove only weighs seven ounces might make you think twice about the protection level it offers. However, once I started playing with the Regulators, I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of protection they provide.
Warrior has changed up the cuffs from their standard padded design to a more molded cuff – the idea obviously being that it will help to decrease weight and bulkiness while maintaining some level of protection.
The wrist area of the glove is noticeably more flexible, and I felt like I had a much easier time moving through the entire range of motion required in shooting and passing. As you can see by the score, Warrior made sure to think of ways to improve the padding with the changed design.
Checks bounced off my hands with little pain. I took a few on the wrist and thumb that I though would have me second guessing the molded cuffs over the standard ones, but I never did. I believe this is due to the design of the cuffs.
Standard cuffs are obviously a little thicker than the Regulator’s. To make up for the lack of thickness, Warrior flared the cuffs out a little. This, along with the stiffness of the molded cuff, helps absorb the impact of checks as the stick crashes into the pads.
All evidence points to a great pair of gloves that will last a long time. The quality of stitching, padding, and material doesn’t seem to show any signs of early weakness. The only thing that brings the Regulators down a notch are the palms. While I absolutely love the grip and feel the Axe Suede material offers, I don’t foresee the palms being able to withstand the duration of a season without some holes opening up. The material is thin, and while it offers great feel on the stick, it will show signs of wear much sooner than a thicker palm.
Have you ever played lacrosse in suede gloves?
Whoever wins these bad boys will have to keep me updated on how they hold up (and maybe allow me custody on the weekends).
Ringing in at $174.99, these are definitely high-end lacrosse gloves. Price-wise they are comparable to the Maverik Romes, Reebok 10k’s, Brine King III’s, and just a little bit above the Nike Vapor Elite’s. Given the quality product that Warrior is offering with the Regulators there isn’t much wrong with the price, other than the simple fact that $175 is a lot for gloves no matter what you’re buying. Again though, let me reiterate that these gloves are top-shelf quality.
Grippin’ and Rippin’.
Overall Score: 8.8/10
Without a doubt, the Warrior Regulators deserve a great score. Outside of the price tag and the question mark surrounding the durability of the palms, the Regulators are an outstanding piece of equipment.
I don’t give out 9’s to just any pair of gloves, but as you can tell through this review and the mass amount of NCAA teams wearing the Regulators, they are great gloves. The Regulators are the complete package – they look fantastic, they’re very customizable, and they provide thorough protection. Not to mention that incredible big dish of butter. Consider me a happy reviewer.
Writing a review has never felt so good.

WARRIOR WORLD SERIES OF YOUTH LACROSSE PRESENTED BY THE COCA-COLA COMPANY ANNOUNCES TEAMS FOR INAUGURAL CHAMPIONSHIP

00:07 Dave Morrow: I played lacrosse at Princeton, and I just would beat the hell out of people playing lacrosse. I used to always bend shafts and I just needed something that wouldn’t bend as easily. My dad and I hatched the idea together that, what if we took titanium and used it for lacrosse shafts? It was literally one of those items where the second you put your hands on it you had to have it because it was half the weight, 5 times the strength, and from a playability standpoint, noticed an immediate impact.
00:38 Morrow: In the first year, we did 300,000 dollars and it was all consumer direct. Just taking credits cards. Then I ended up running my own building, and then my wife, who at that time, was my girlfriend, she was a geochemist working in Boulder, Colorado, of all places. So she left Boulder and moved to Detroit where I worked in this little crappy office. I’d wear blue jeans, and work boots and a T-shirt to work. And then I would chop titanium handles and polish them and wrap them up and send them out. Believe it or not, there was a titanium tubing factory right there that was 20 minutes from us. There was an aluminum extrusion factory right there.
01:18 Morrow: And then the lacrosse head frame is actually plastic injection mold. Plastic injection molding is all over metro Detroit. The margins were good enough that we could actually mold them in the US, so we were making our molds in China, but what we realized is, once we had to ship them back to the US, all the work we had to do on the molds to get them to run properly, it just got to a point where the costs weren’t really worth all the time and effort to save on the initial tooling price.
01:47 Morrow: So now, we’ve moved almost all of our tooling business back to the United States. We’re constantly searching for what products that we can bring back and source in the US. And this is more of an issue now with how popular Asian manufacturing is that everyone’s like, “Well, we can got to Asia and make it at this price.” The caveat I’d give there is that we have to make sure that your product is excellent.
02:15 Morrow: So, from my opinion, it’s not worth, at the very beginning, to rush out and try to make that extra margin to possibly compromise the quality and delivery of the product. Because, if your product is the heart and soul of your brand that you just want able to reach out and touch it, and make sure that it’s up to standard and that, if something does go wrong, you can stop it and fix it in real time. We have a very robust manufacturing community in Home At West, particularly in Detroit and in Michigan. And it’s really just exploiting that know-how.

Continued.Part 1 can be read here.
One day in February of last year, shortly before the classroom shutdown due to the pandemic, I visited Padilla in Princeton. The campus was quiet and gloomy, and the silent atmosphere indicated the very beginning of the semester. The wind blew the leaves from the trees and the color from the sky, which was now a milky gray, like water after washing, and the air was so dense with fog that it seemed to dissolve the outlines of buildings. On that day, Padilla taught a course in Roman history in one of the university’s oldest lecture halls, a large vaulted hall with creaking floorboards and multi-layered windows.This space was not intended for innovative pedagogy. Each wooden chair was bolted to the floor and had a spatula-shaped stand that served as a table but barely held a laptop, let alone a laptop.
“These desks were definitely made back in the days when students didn’t even take notes,” one student said as she sat down. “Like, ‘My dad will give me a job anyway.”
Returning to university as a professor in 2016, Padilla worked to make Princeton’s Faculty of Classical Sciences a more attractive destination for students like him, first-generation students of color. In 2018, the faculty secured doctoral funding to help students with limited knowledge of the history of ancient Greece and Rome to pursue a PhD. This initiative, as well as Padilla’s popularity as a mentor, made Princeton alumni some of the most antiquated in the country. Priah Jackson, a black doctoral student who is the daughter of a New Mexico funeral worker, told me that before coming to Princeton she doubted she could combine her interest in the classics with her commitment to social justice.“I didn’t think I could do the classics and change the world the way I wanted,” she said. “But my idea that it is possible has gradually changed.”
The Padilla Roman History Course was the standard introductory course that the university has offered for decades, if not centuries, but it has not taught it in a standard way. He experimented with role-playing games to get his students to imagine what it was like to be a subject of the Roman Empire.Last week he asked them to try to recreate the discussions that took place in the Roman Senate in 15 AD. BC, about a proposed hydraulic engineering project that communities in central Italy feared might change the course of the Tiber River, destroying animal habitats and flooding ancient shrines. (Unlike the Senate, Princeton University students chose to leave the project as planned.) The topic of today’s session was inspired by the succession crisis that threatened to tear apart the early Roman empire.Of the 80 students attending the lecture, Padilla appointed four young military leaders as candidates for the throne, and the other four as wealthy Roman senators; the rest were split between the Praetorian Guard and the legionnaires mercenaries, whose military services could be bought in exchange for money, land, and honors. The lesson plan was designed to help students “think as broadly as possible about the many human lives that will be affected by the transition from republic to empire.”Inosmi
bow and maroon sweater over a collared shirt as the students entered the classroom. The immobility of his posture only strengthened the impression of the agitated work of his mind. “He carries a big stick with him, but he doesn’t flaunt it,” Cowan, Padilla’s mentor as a child, told me.”It’s soft on the outside, but very hard on the inside.” Padilla expresses a high, scholarly style, so precise and thoughtful that it can seem like a kind of protective armor. This is the tough, careful manner of someone who has learned to observe complex codes of communication, someone who is always aware that it is important not only what he says, but also how he does it. Perhaps it is for this reason that Padilla seems most at ease when talking to students, when his phrases lose some formality, and his voice acquires the enchanting rhythm of poetry.”Silence,” he said when the room became quiet, “is my favorite sound.”
Padilla summoned the students to the podium. At first, they stood uncertainly on the dais, like teenagers auditioning for a school play. Then they slowly moved to where the school desks were. I watched as one of them, a young man in an army green T-shirt with the words “Support our troops”, proposed to a group of legionnaires: “I will take the land from the non-Romans and give it to you, and also grant you citizenship.”As more and more students left their seats and entered into negotiations, proposals and counter-proposals seemed to bounce off the walls. Not everyone took this game seriously. At one point, another challenger approached a blue-eyed legionnaire in a lacrosse sweatshirt to — ask what needs to be done to enlist his support. “I just want to defend my right to party,” he said. “Can I place an order for a statue of my mother?” Someone else asked. The stocky blond student kept rushing to the front of the audience and offered to simply “kill everyone.”But Padilla even seemed to like the confusion that had been created. He moved from group to group, encouraging the participants in the game. Why let someone else take over? He asked one student. “If you are a soldier or a peasant dissatisfied with the imperial rule, why don’t you resist?” He said to another. “What alliances can you make?” – he asked the third question.
For the next 40 minutes, rants were heard in the audience, votes were held, broken promises condemned, and bloody conflicts erupted.Several people were “killed”. In the end, it turned out that both parties were going almost on equal terms, and the vote count was announced. The young man in the T-shirt won the empire by seven votes, and Padilla returned to the pulpit. “In the next few weeks, I want to think about,” he told the students, “how we can tell the story of the early Roman Empire, not only through many sources, but also through a wide variety of people.” He asked students to think about the lives behind the roles he gave them and how those lives were shaped by the imperial system, which, through military conquest, human enslavement and trade, creates conditions for its development.
As the students walked out of the room to the whistle of opening umbrellas and waterproof synthetic raincoats, I asked Padilla why he hadn’t assigned anyone to the role of slave. Running his fingers over the top of his head, he told me that he was thinking about it. He worried that, in this respect, his behavior could be regarded as a “suppression of history” given the fact that slavery was “perhaps the most pervasive feature of the Roman Empire.” As a historian, he knew that the assets held by the four wealthy senators – the 100 million sesterces that he “lent” to them to support one challenger against another, were mostly slaves who worked in their mines and processed the fields they owned.Was it right to ask students to represent themselves in roles of such comfort, status and influence, when the vast majority of people in the Roman world were never able to become a senator? But in the end, he decided that excluding the slave characters from the RPG was an act of caution. “I was not yet ready to turn to the student and say, ‘You will be a slave.’”
Even before the “incident”, Padilla was the target of the wrath of the right because of the sharp tongue he uses and, as many would say, in which he dwells. Following a conservative media controversy with Williams, Padilla received a series of racist emails. “Maybe studying Africa will suit you better if you can’t come to terms with the fact that Europeans were so advanced in their culture?” – was written in one of them. “Dummy, you probably won’t understand why the wheel never made it to sub-Saharan Africa. You’re in luck, black, because you have nothing more to say. ” The American ultra-right website Breitbard published an article accusing Padilla of “killing” the classical tradition.“If there is one area of science that is guaranteed never to be captured by the forces of ignorance, political correctness, identity politics, social justice and stupidity, then this is a classic tradition,” it said. – So welcome, barbarians! The gates of Rome are wide open for you! ”
In private, even some of Padilla’s sympathetic classicists feared that his approach to the science of antiquity would only accelerate the decline of this field. “I talked to graduate students who told me they were ashamed to tell their friends that they were studying the classical tradition,” Denis Feeney, Padilla’s colleague from Princeton, told me. “I think this is very unfortunate.” He noticed that the classical tradition was often used for radical and destructive purposes. Civil rights movements and marginalized groups around the world drew inspiration from ancient texts for their struggles for equality – from African Americans to Irish Republicans and Haitian revolutionaries who saw their leader Toussaint Louverture as “black Spartacus.” The heroines of Greek tragedy, unbridled righteous women with destructive inclinations like Medea of Euripides, became symbols of resistance to patriarchy for feminists such as Simone de Beauvoir, and descriptions of same-sex love in Sappho’s poetry and in Plato’s works provided hope and consolation to gay writers such as Oscar Wilde. …
“I admire Dan’s work and, like him, regret the lack of diversity in the classical tradition,” renowned British antiquarian Mary Beard told me by email. “But ‘condemning’ classical culture would be as simplistic as expressing unconditional admiration for it. My understanding has always been that it is the academician’s duty to make things look more complicated.” In her 2019 speech, Beard argued that “although the classics can become politicized, in fact, there is no politics in it, “meaning that, like the Bible, the classical tradition is the power of the word – the vocabulary that would-be liberators and oppressors can use equally for good and for evil.For centuries, classical civilization served as a model for people of all walks of life, who turned it into a matrix with which they formed and argued about beauty, morality, power, nature, identity, citizenship and, of course, about race.
Anthony Grafton, the great Renaissance scholar, put it in his introduction to The Classical Tradition: “A comprehensive account of how the world defined itself in relation to Greco-Roman antiquity is nothing more than a comprehensive history of the world.”
The story of how these two old civilizations became central to the intellectual life of America begins not in antiquity or even in the Renaissance, but in the Age of Enlightenment. The classic tradition as we know it today is a creation of the 18-19 centuries. At a time when European universities were freeing themselves from the dictates of the church, the study of Greece and Rome gave Europe a new, secular origin story. The Greek and Latin writings competed with the Bible’s moral authority, which gave them a liberating power.Figures such as Diderot and Hume took some of their ideas about freedom from the classical texts, where they found declarations of political and personal freedoms. One of the most popular was Pericles’ funeral oration over the graves of Athenian soldiers who died in the war in 431 BC. e., recorded by Thucydides, in which this statesman praises his “glorious” city for ensuring “equal justice for all.” “Our government is not like our neighbors,” he says, “but is an example for them.It is true that we are called democracy because power is in the hands of many, not a few people. ”
Admiration for the ancients acquired a fantastic, insane character, and turned into a kind of mania. Men donned Roman togas for public appearances, signed their letters with the names of famous Romans, and filled etiquette guides, sermons, and textbooks with excerpts from the classical past. Johann Joachim Winckelmann, a German researcher of antiquity in the 18th century, assured his compatriots that “the only way for us to become great or even inimitable is to become like the Greeks.”Winckelmann, sometimes referred to as the “father of art history”, considered Greek marble sculpture to be the pinnacle of human achievement, unsurpassed in any other society, ancient or modern. He wrote that the “noble simplicity and quiet grandeur” of Athenian art reflected the “freedom” of the culture that gave birth to it, a complex interweaving of artistic and moral values that would still affect Hegel’s Aesthetics and reappear in the poetry of the Romantic period. “Beauty is truth, truth is beauty,” Keats wrote in his poem Ode to a Greek Vase.”This is all that you have comprehended on earth, and this is all you need to know. ”
Historians emphasize that such ideas cannot be separated from the ideas of nationalism, racial superiority and progress, which were formed in the new colonial period, when Europeans came into contact with other peoples and their traditions. “The whiter the body, the more beautiful it is,” Winckelmann wrote. While Renaissance scholars were fascinated by the plurality of cultures in the ancient world, Enlightenment thinkers created a hierarchy with Greece and Rome coded in white at the top and everything else at the bottom.”This scheme was at the heart of the classical tradition as a project,” Paul Cosmin, a professor of ancient history at Harvard University, told me. Among these thinkers of the Enlightenment were many of America’s founding fathers. Aristotle’s belief that some people were “slaves by nature “, Was greeted with particular zeal in the American South before the Civil War, which was designed to defend slavery in the face of abolitionist criticism. In Notes on the State of Virginia, Thomas Jefferson wrote that, despite living conditions, Roman slaves proved to be” the rarest artists “, Who” also succeeded in the sciences, and so much so that they were usually assigned to the children of their master as mentors. “He argued that the fact that Africans were not used in the same way was simply due to their race.
Jefferson, along with the wealthiest young men of his time, studied classics in college, where students often spent most of their time reading and translating Greek and Roman texts. “Besides Christianity,” writes Caroline Winter, a historian at Stanford University, “the main intellectual project in America until the late 19th century was the classical tradition.”Of the 2.5 million people who lived in America in 1776, perhaps only 3000 went to college, but that number includes many of the country’s founding fathers. They saw classical civilization as a unique educational system — a “beacon of experience,” in the words of Patrick Henry, that could illuminate the path to a better society. However true it may be, subsequent generations will come to the conviction, as Hannah Arendt wrote in her book On the Revolution, that “without the classic example … no revolutionist on either side of the Atlantic would have had the courage to do what was then turned out to be an unprecedented act. “
While the Founding Fathers chose to emulate the Roman Republic for fear of the tyranny of the majority, later generations of Americans drew inspiration from Athenian democracy, especially after civil rights were extended to nearly all white men in the early decades of the 1800s, regardless of on their property and social status. The comparison between the United States and the Roman Empire became very popular, especially as America began to become a world power.Even after Latin and Greek were excluded from college entrance exams, the proliferation of courses in “great books” and Western civilization, in which the classical texts were read in translation, helped to create a coherent American national history, despite the turmoil of industrialization and war. … Much of the art and literature of the 20th century involved complex relationships with ancient Greece and Rome. And even when the classical tradition was dismembered, ridiculed and modified, it continued to constitute the “raw material” with which many artists formed their vision of modernity.
Over the centuries, thinkers as diverse as John Adams and Simone Weil have compared classical antiquity to a mirror. Generations of intellectuals, including feminists, gay people and black scientists, have seen something of their own in classical texts – flashes of recognition that carry the hope of liberation. Daniel Mendelssohn, a gay antiquarian scholar and critic, discovered his sexual orientation at age 12 by reading history books about the life of Alexander the Great. “Up to this point,” he wrote to The New Yorker in 2013, “I had never seen my secret feelings reflected anywhere.”But the idea of the classics as a mirror can be as dangerous as it is seductive. The language used to describe the presence of classical antiquity in the modern world – classical tradition, legacy, or heritage – contains the idea of a special, quasi-genetic relationship between modern Americans and antiquity. In his lecture, “Western Civilization Does Not Exist,” Kwame Anthony Appiah (columnist for the Ethics column in this edition) derisively describes the belief in kinship as the belief in the “golden nugget” – a precious birthright and a phantom sign of greatness that whites imagine Americans and Europeans, passed on to them from the ancients. This belief became so deep that the philosopher John Stuart Mill could talk about the Battle of Marathon, in which the Greeks defeated the Persians in their first invasion in 490 BC. e., as about “one of the most important events in English history.”
To see a classic tradition as Padilla sees it is to break a mirror. This means denouncing classical heritage as one of the most harmful stories we have ever told ourselves. Padilla is wary of colleagues who advocate radical use of classics as a way to prevent possible change.He believes that such examples are based on the long presence in this field of forces of oppression and domination. Classical tradition and “whiteness” – the blood and flesh of the same body. They grew up together, and they may have to die together. The classical tradition deserves survival only if it can become a “battlefield” for those communities that have been rejected by it in the past. Last semester, he teamed with the High School of Activists in a course called Breaking Tradition, which compares ancient texts to critical race theory and organizational strategies. “I think the policy of our survival is to make classical tradition a field for constructive research,” Padilla told me. “I want people to think of people of color when they think of the classics.” But if the classics do not stand up to these tests, Padilla and others are ready to leave it. “I would give up the classical tradition altogether,” Walter Scheidel, another of Padilla’s former Stanford leaders, told me. “I don’t think it should exist as an area of academic research.”
One way to get rid of the classics is to dissolve faculties and transfer their staff to the departments of history, archeology and linguistics. But many scholars of antiquity advocate softer approaches to reforming the discipline, with an emphasis on expanding its boundaries. Private universities such as Howard and Emory have combined the classics with studies of the ancient Mediterranean, including Egypt, Anatolia, the Levant, and North Africa. These changes are a declaration of the main goal: to leave behind the hierarchical science of the Enlightenment and return to the Renaissance model of the ancient world as a site of diversity and fusion of different cultures. “There is a more interesting approach to history, of what we call the West. This is the history of humanity, without emphasizing in it the special significance of individual cultures, ”says Josephine Quinn, professor of ancient history at Oxford. “It seems to me that the really decisive factor in history is always the relationship between people, between cultures.” Ian Morris put it more bluntly. “The classical tradition is a myth of Euro-American culture,” Morris told me. “Do we really want this?”
For many, both in academia and beyond, the answer to this question is yes.Denis Feeney, a colleague of Padilla at Princeton, believes that society “will lose a lot” if it abandons the classical tradition. Feeney is 65, and after retiring this year, he says his first wish is to get back to Homer. “I’m not sure that there is any scientific discipline that is not part of the history of this country. What is the special viciousness of the classical tradition? I don’t see anything like it in her. ” Amy Richlin, a feminist at the University of California, Los Angeles, who helped completely revolutionize the study of the role of women in the Roman world, laughed when I mentioned the idea of dividing ancient history departments at Ivy League universities.“I wish good luck to those who dare to do this,” she said. “These faculties have their own sponsors and foundations, and they will not let them dissolve voluntarily.” But when I insisted on the question of whether it was desirable, if not even achievable, she wondered. Some people in the classical tradition, especially graduate students and non-contract teachers, are concerned that small college and public university administrations will simply use change as an excuse to curtail classical programs.“One of the dubious successes of my generation is that it destroyed the canons,” Richlin told me. – I think that until recently we could not believe that we would find ourselves outside the classical tradition, but things are moving towards this. If they blow up the faculties of ancient culture, it will really be the end. ”
Padilla said he “cringes” when he recalls his youthful desire to change under the influence of classical tradition. Today, he describes the discovery of a textbook at an orphanage in Chinatown as an ominous encounter, as if the book lay in wait for him.He compares it to a scene from the autobiography of Frederick Douglass when Mr. Oldham host Douglas in Baltimore, chastises his wife for the fact that it helps to Douglas to learn to read: “If you teach that nigger read, it will be impossible to keep. He will cease to be a slave forever. ” Douglas says it was at this point that he realized that literacy is what separates white people from black people – it is “a new and special revelation that explains dark and mysterious things.” “At times it seemed to me that learning to read was more a curse than a blessing,” Douglas writes.”It put me in a deplorable state with no possibility of healing.” The knowledge of the secret only deepened his sense of isolation.
Padilla, like Douglas, now sees a moment of immersion in the classical tradition as a simultaneous awareness of racial differences. He can no longer feel the pride or consolation that he used her to get out of poverty. He cannot afford it. “Seeking self-worth within a system of structural oppression,” Padilla said, “requires a complete immersion in the logic of its values.”
Last June, as racial justice protests swept across the country, Padilla turned his attention to areas beyond the study of antiquity. He and his co-authors – astrophysicist Jenny Green, literary theorist Andrew Cole, and poet Tracey K. Smith – began writing an open letter to Princeton’s leadership with 48 proposals for reform. This letter began with the words: “Fighting blacks is the foundation of America.” “Indifference to the consequences of racism at our university prompts legitimate demands for institutional support and redress in the face of aggression and outright racist incidents that have long gone unmet.The letter, signed by over 300 faculty members, was published on July 4th. In response, Joshua Katz, a renowned scholar of antiquity from Princeton, published an article in the online magazine Quillette in which he called the League of Black Justice student group a “terrorist organization” town “.
Few in academia supported Katz in his rhetoric, but he was far from the only person who worried that some of Padilla’s proposals were unreasonable, if not dangerous.Most controversial was the idea of creating a committee that “would oversee the investigation and disciplinary punishment of incidents of racism, including in research and publication.” The creation of such a committee was viewed by many as a threat to academic freedoms at the university. “I am concerned about how racist research will be defined,” one professor told me. – After all, something is constantly changing in them and new things are being discovered. Punishing people for research that other people think is racist doesn’t feel right to me. “But Padilla thinks the free speech hype is far-fetched. “I don’t see things like freedom of speech or exchange of ideas as an end in itself,” he told me. “I see them as a means to the goal of human prosperity.”
On January 6, Padilla turned on the television just minutes after the Capitol windows were smashed. In the crowd, he saw a man wearing a Greek helmet with a white TRUMP 2020 lettering. He saw a man wearing a T-shirt with a golden eagle – a symbol of Roman law and just rule – under the 6MWE logo, which means “Six million was not enough”, which is a reference to the number of Jews. killed in the Holocaust.He saw flags embroidered with the phrase that, according to legend, the Spartan king Leonidas uttered when the Persian king ordered him to lay down his arms: “Molon labe”, which in classical Greek means “Come and take it.” The phrase has become the slogan of American gun rights activists. A week after the riots, Rep. Marjorie Taylor Green, a newly elected Republican from Georgia who enjoyed social media posts calling for the assassination of Democrats, donned a mask with a similar phrase she uttered when she voted against impeachment of Trump.
“There are classical scholars who will look at what happened and say, ‘No, this is not us,’” Padilla told me in a recent conversation. “I am particularly interested in exactly why they say ‘This is not us.” The institutions that study and cultivate the classical tradition are based on systematic racism. Can you honestly summarize, can you admit that racism is part of what what are you doing? These are the demands of the current political moment. ”
Padilla believes that one day he will have to leave the classical tradition and science in general in order to actively seek the changes that he wants to see in the world.He even thinks about getting into politics. “As a child, I would never have believed that my current position would be available to me,” he said. “But the fact that this small miracle did happen does not change my deep conviction that this is a temporary phenomenon.” His influence in the science of antiquity can become something much more permanent than his presence in it. “Dan has inspired many people in science,” Rebecca Futo Kennedy, a professor at Denison University, told me.Joel Christensen, a professor at Brandeis University, now feels that teaching classical literature in a way that reveals its racist history is now his “moral, ethical and intellectual duty.” “Otherwise, we are simply engaging in propaganda,” he said. Christensen, 42, was a graduate student before he had a “crisis of faith,” and he understands the fear that many scholars of the classical tradition may feel when asked to rewrite all the content of their work and life.But, he warned, “this future is coming, with or without Dan.”

Under Armor: closer to the body
There is always a place for self-taught romantics in this world. Thomas Edison did more than ten thousand experiments before he patented the light bulb. Allen Breed has waited nearly thirty years for the largest car companies to adopt his airbag. Former fullback of the University of Maryland soccer team , Kevin Plank came from the same breed. In 1996, an aspiring entrepreneur took up sewing a new pattern of sportswear.
It seemed like what new could be invented when it comes to a regular training T-shirt, salted T-shirt? Especially when you get down to business with a minimum start-up capital, and even in the basement of a house in Baltimore, which your own grandmother gave you out of the kindness of her heart?
Winning in such a situation is possible only on the knowledge of certain details, somehow left out of sight of the “big players” of the sports industry. By the way, in a similar way, Bill Bowerman and Phil Knight, the founders of Nike, gave German competitors from Adidas under their breath when they invented a lighter model of running spikes and found a huge area of application for this know-how – artificial tracks of their own manufacture.
Kevin Planck actually tried walking trails. He began his first steps in business with the sale of woven bracelets and counterfeit T-shirts. But soon the coveted free niche was found – the 23-year-old entrepreneur set about creating a special T-shirt for American football players. The meaning of the idea looked extremely simple. Even going to the site for the university team, Planck had a lot of trouble with the form – every time she sweated godlessly. The situation was aggravated by protective equipment, which required the presence of something tight-fitting, ordinary cotton T-shirts for these purposes turned out to be absolutely unsuitable.
Planck experimented a lot with different materials before finding a microfiber that could absorb both sweat and normal moisture. A trial batch of ten T-shirts was sold to fellow athletes. By the end of 1996, the newborn Under Armor brand had already reached about $ 17,000 in revenue. Know-how managed to interest the sports departments of large megamalls.
– We like T-shirts. Do they come with long sleeves?
“Of course,” replied Planck and directed his efforts towards developing an improved version.
– What about cold weather?
– No question.
In 1997, a young businessman already looked after a small factory in Ohio for his production line.
Under Armor essentially created the market for compression sportswear. These kits were made of elastic materials and fit the body tightly. Such clothing maintains muscle tone, enhances the athlete’s movements, conserving and returning energy during physical activity. A little later, Planck’s innovations were picked up by market monsters like Nike or Adidas.However, they were unable to stop Under Armor’s impressive growth.
“Every Sunday” and beyond
Plank used every channel to attract a loyal clientele. Between 1999 and 2000, distinctive logos appeared in two Warner Brothers feature films, Every Sunday and Spare. The ribbons were dedicated to American football, fans of the super popular game, equipment with the Under Armor badge was already well known. The move worked one hundred percent.With Al Pacino, Cameron Diaz and Dennis Quaid, Every Sunday quickly became a classic in the sports movie genre.
In 2003, the company launched the long-awaited line of women’s clothing. Three years later, their own shoes appeared. And the main target audience of Under Armor marketers is young people. Research has shown that teenagers have embraced the brand with a frenzied passion. And for Planck, this news became a real balm for the soul. The logic is simple. Most likely, the high school footballer will not track all Under Armor collections annually, but he will remain committed to the brand for the next 50 years.
Planck’s energy allowed by 2008 to create a business with an annual turnover of more than 600 million dollars. By that time, Under Armor had stepped far beyond the borders of North America. The European office of the company has opened at the Olympic stadium in the Dutch city of Amsterdam. The Asian market began to be controlled from China’s Guangzhou, Indonesian Jakarta and booming Hong Kong.
Under Armor has established itself fairly easily in new markets. The company managed to win the trust of the Wales national rugby team, through a sponsorship agreement with Tottenham Hotspur, entered the football fields of the English Premier League.In the United States, after gaining prestige from the best NFL clubs, the systematic development of new territories began – golf and baseball courses, tennis courts, basketball palaces and cages for MMA fighters. Expansion continues to be accompanied by new developments.
This year, the line of winter clothing will use the technology of ceramic spraying. It allows you to keep warm more efficiently. A bonus will be the release of a special antiperspirant. A little earlier, a T-shirt that protects from overheating in the sun passed a successful presentation.The hit of sales of the American football uniform was the general stylistic coloring of the “Wounded Warrior”. The concept is based on T-shirts and shoes in the colors of the Stars and Stripes USA flag. And a little earlier, in 2011, at its factory in China, Under Armor introduced the production of shoes with a minimum number of seams and without an insole.
Planck has already achieved some truly crazy economic performance. The company’s shares are constantly gaining in price. The capitalization of his brainchild reached $ 8 billion. The revenue is about 2 billion in US currency.
Seth Jason, Journalist at TMFBent: “Under Armor strives to become the sports brand of a generation, both by producing improved versions of products in existing markets and by creating new markets. Thus, the compression jersey has led the company to a line of loose absorbent apparel, performance underwear, cold weather apparel, ski equipment, special athletic shoes and a new line of football boots designed to conquer yet another market segment.I love Planck’s recent statement that a company will judge the success of a soccer shoe launch not by profit margins, but by how successful Under Armor is in promoting its as-yet-untapped markets. It also inspires sympathy for how the company develops its brand. She has her own way in the world of sports, so she is looking for non-obvious markets, such as student teams in women’s lacrosse. ”
But the appetites of a successful businessman amaze much more. Planck wants to increase Under Armor’s profits by another five (!) Times in the coming years.This seems like an overly exuberant fantasy, if you do not take into account the objective indicator – the total capacity of the world market for sportswear and footwear has already exceeded the scale of $ 200 billion abroad. And with that in mind, we can say that $ 10 billion is comparable to Nike’s trade efforts, which reached such a milestone just ten years ago.

The teacher of etiquette has compiled a list of the most stylish men in Minsk. See who entered it
The founder of the school of etiquette and culture Oksana Zaretskaya compiled a list of the most stylish men in Minsk and published it on her Facebook.Oksana noted that she did not do the rating: “I would never undertake to arrange men in order. I chose for brightness and fidelity to style, purity of taste, relevance to the man himself and how much the story with his successful images is not accidental. ” We publish excerpts from the post of an etiquette teacher and, in fact, the list itself.
Designer Apti Eziev
Even if you are not familiar with Apti, once you are in the same space with him, pay attention to this charismatic, stylish and brutal man.In general, as I was told, it is dishonest to include “professionals” on this list. Apti has been involved in fashion and style for a long time, his image is unique. Love for complex textures, geometrically cut, leather and black fits perfectly into its contrasting appearance. This person is stylish self-made from the tips of the beard to the toes of the shoes <…>. There, on a scorched terrace under the shade of tired grapes, Eziev would suggest that I drink the eight-year-old Octomore – strong, peaty and thick.
Designer Dmitry Zabolotny
<…> Dima has an undeniable taste.He masterfully owns all stripes, cells and paisley, ribs and paws. Combines them with the dexterity of a juggler, and is able to make up one hundred images, unique in texture, color and pattern. He is always dressed with a needle in the literal sense: the silhouette is fitted, the line is verified, the print is calculated. Applause! In this city, in my immodest opinion, there is no man who would better represent the classics in clothes. Dmitry is a Neapolitan who has gone into his timeless space <...>. The drink is The Famous Grouse whiskey.Clean. Without ice.
Designer Timur Velitovsky
Charismatic and bright with a recognizable and unchanging image, Timur won my heart even when I lived in Geneva. Looking at his photo on Facebook, I understood that if there is such a stylish man in Minsk, then all is not lost among the Belarusians. Timur’s style is a creative classic: warm gray, classic blue, snow-white, diluted with cage, red and character. <…> Timur in my vision of the style is Catalan: both Spaniard, and French, and a crazy genius with a wild mustache.Something in between Dali, Don Quixote and a French chevalier. <…> If you choose a drink that I would drink with Timur – a cocktail in a glass of martini with ice and lime based on apple juice.
Director of the Internet company Astronim * Bogdan Korovets
No top stylish men in Minsk can do without this name. Moreover, Bogdan’s style changes from year to year: now he has moved from neon sport chic to more classic models. But all of his bows in jackets are no less interesting.These are bright scarves, jeans and trousers of an unusual cut, this is a collection of shoes that any fashionista and runner will envy. Perhaps, in this city no one else can wear sneakers with such chic as Bogdan. In my head, his style “parallels” the images of French electronic music lovers organizing Dj-sets at the walls of the old castles of the Loire. And those drinking Courvoisier L’Esprit Decante – powerful, but with a delicate aftertaste. <…>
Host Alexander Serikov
Bright, verified and consistent in his classic style, Sasha is never boring.His crisp white shirts, turtlenecks, fitted jackets and Ray Ban sunglasses are the perfect match for Alfa Roméo and Sinatra. Geometric hairstyle, a watch on a leather strap, a pocket square – this man knows the importance of details and knows how to create an organic and original image with their help. I would correlate his style with the mood of Italian immigrants in America: in them the ideal taste is fed with mother’s milk, and the American land gave them efficiency and high cost. And we would drink Bellini – the legendary Venetian aperitif with prosecco.
Host Yura Yaroshik
Young and daring Yura Yaroshik fits perfectly into the image of a preppy. There is everything to get into the top stylish men of the city: excellent possession of a classic base, the ability to deviate from the standard, play with prints, love for accessories and endless charm. An all-American “golden youth” with golf courses, Ivy League and lacrosse flair. And it would be nice to talk to Yura over a Harvard Fizz cocktail, of course: brandy, vermouth, bitter, soda.
Host Andrey Bond
The list of stylish men of the city, which Andrei Bond did not get into, is fake, amateurish and not worthy of any consideration at all. Because Andrey is not just stylish. He lives in accordance with every detail, every line and every form of his image. Its appearance is just an outward manifestation of the way of thinking: original, bold, complex and intelligent. Andrey is one of the few men within a radius of 1000 kilometers who is able to wear skirts, knee-highs and beads.<…> But Andrei and I will have a martini with an olive. Suddenly? This is the point – Bond cannot be written into the rules.
DJ Alex Despotin
DJ and dude with the main residence in Vilnius, but still falls into my list of the most stylish men in Minsk. Despite his musical activity in nightclubs, Alex’s style remains flat, laconic and European. Well-fitting jackets, bright pocket squares and crisp white shirts.It would be boring if Despotin did not crown his image with the right shoes. This is where his taste is manifested. On the sidelines, they say that it is necessary to evaluate men’s style by shoes. And here Alex is an excellent student. And if you look at how these shoes set off the whole bow, it even pulls a medalist. His image is associated with Milan, and we will drink grappa infused with violets.
Architect Andrus Bezdar
Free, fast, light and confident – Andrey’s style.Knitwear, black and gray colors, flying and baggy cut, convenience and even some kind of careless attitude to the opinions of others – all are just a plus for this talented man. … <…> Andrey has no passing bows, because his style is born from his way of moving and thinking. This is the creative and free atmosphere of New York, where jazz, rock, metal, house and trance meet at one point. There, at the intersection of some avenues and streets, I would have drunk a B-52 with him. <…>.
Businessman Vitaly Shitko
If the Roman generals survived to this day, they would look like Vitaly.A noble jawline, a clear angle of the shoulder with a thrown in a scarf or unbuttoned by the collar – like a cloak of a warrior of the empire, only emphasize stateliness and strength. Vitaly chooses expensive fabrics, ideal suits, but adds sprezzatura to them – a slight negligence, the whole task of which is to set off the shine of the armor. … <…>. Drink – only wine and only red. Like the blood of the rebellious colonies, but from a golden cup.
Sommelier Pavel Mantsevich
<…> Pavel is old-school, solid, confident and infinitely charming.He chooses a simple white shirt or a laconic black turtleneck, he wears them with exceptional dignity. A clear, slightly rounded frame of glasses, rolled up sleeves, a regular beard and a curved wrist holding the glass by the bottom – a recognizable image of a sommelier. The place on the world map for Paul is the Champagne wine cellars, and we will drink Swiss chasselas. <…>.

Friday evening.Call a friend.
– What are you doing tonight? I have a date scheduled, but I want to be guaranteed to have a good Friday. And with a date it is never clear.
– I’m going to IKEA for a coffee or coffee table or whatever it is, a table. Mine broke. Would you like to keep me company. Then we can collect it. I’ll cook dinner.
– Going. How can a coffee table be broken?
– I put a girl on it.
– A, approx. Let’s go to IKEA.
That’s what I understand, Friday. We chose a table, Vlad, after fifty years of dating, found out that I don’t eat red meat, and we argued a little about the choice of food for dinner in the IKEA grocery section, rolled over to him, had dinner, watched a movie, gathered a table, neighing, discussed a plan to take over the world.We posted stories. We need to give the Russian community in Sydney a topic for discussion. Such a family evening.
I arrived home at one in the morning and until three answered with an endless message to Jan’s endless message. We don’t correspond every day anymore. He is fine. Finishes his Ph.D. Coming to work in October. Travels to European lacrosse tournaments. They continue to practice open relationships when one of them is away. He was too busy playing, and she was at home and she had a lot of time.No, he is almost never jealous. And they decided to buy a house with a mortgage. It is more profitable than taking pictures. And this is an investment, even if it doesn’t stay in Germany forever. Fuck, right? The town where they live now again began to feel like home for him. Though he misses the salty air of Sydney. He felt good again in the same place due to the fact that he regularly runs, registering for his first marathon in his life. Guess whose influence. I hope he won’t curse me after the 35th kilometer, when the fun begins at the marathon.He is allergic, and it turned out that after a run he can breathe normally. I am delighted with this news. Really glad.
But although it seems to me that I am reinforced concrete, apparently, the information that they are buying a house (well, ok, think about it) and so on. does not pass without a trace for me. On Saturday, I was pushed so hard that I had neither the physical strength nor the emotional to do anything at all, except to eat and read a book. And I had a bunch of plans: to edit a book, work freelance, go to the gym.I was hopelessly sad and terribly sorry for myself. And it seemed that life was passing by (while other people were buying at home together, I was lying around with a book alone, eating bread with orange marmalade from IKEA, growing my ass and no one needed it) and there would be no end or end to this state.
I needed an excuse to leave the house and I cherished the hope that someone would distract and entertain me. And she agreed to go for a walk with a boy whom she had not met before. And he chaaaaaaaas told me about how hard his life was and how he was lost.Handsome man, Australian, 39 years old, actor from Brisbane. Divorced, two children, real estate in Briben. I walked and thought: “This is a hit. We had to run into it like that. Now my mood will fall below the plinth. ” You have to be very careful with whom you communicate. Fortunately, he didn’t have a heavy energy and he didn’t take the energy out of me.
