The sport of boxing has always been adept at putting itself on the canvas. Some of the self-inflicted blows derive from the fact that promoters have boxers under extended contracts.

Will Boardwalk Empire Conquer Fears of Telling a Tale of Two Cities?

With Boardwalk Empire's sobering tales of corruption, brutal violence and betrayals with a 1920s backdrop, the Boardwalk series is my kind of show. It even includes (unlike Mad Men) the African-American experience. Or some version of it.

Young Md. investor wants to become casino player

AP | WAYNE PARRY | Posted 05.25.2011 | Home

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. — A Maryland private equity fund whose chief investment officer is barely old enough to roll the dice or have a legal drink wants to become a player in the Atlantic City casino industry.

New Century Investment says it has $500 million to invest and is willing to partner with either Donald Trump or the bondholders with whom Trump is struggling in bankruptcy court.

The company, including 21-year-old Artin Afsharjavan (ahf-SHAR'-juh-vahn), wants to buy a controlling interest in Trump Entertainment Resorts' three casinos.

Failing that, it is looking elsewhere in Atlantic City, which has no shortage of distressed gambling halls.

Trump CEO Mark Juliano says New Century hasn't yet proved it can back up its bid.
