Girl Power In Mudville

'I’m sure if it fell during the baseball season we would be commemorating that at the old ballpark?  Right?'
By : At first blush, Sunday, August 26, appeared to be a typical game day (actually it was a night game) for the Frisco RoughRiders of the Texas League.  With a little more than a week to go in the season, the Riders were pushing to win the second half of the season and the right to advance to the post-season to meet Corpus Christi in the playoffs.  Aside from that, a few members of the team were auditioning for a possible call-up to the team’s big league affiliate, the Texas Rangers, during the month of September.
As usual, it was Kids Sunday Funday at Dr Pepper Ballpark, which meant that before the game against the Midland Rockhounds the wee folk could play catch on the field before the game and enjoy a fireworks display after the game.  Also, ice cream sandwiches were available for just $1.00 all night long.  Obviously, you get more bang for your buck on Sunday Funday, but piling on promotions is common in minor league baseball.
On this particular Sunday, Frisco sweetened the pot with an additional promotion: Girl Power Night!  The videoboard’s girly logo for same featured a baseball with pink stitches.  Maybe they had some for sale in the team shop…I forgot to check!

Erdogan Calls on Global Trading Partners to Smash US Dollar Monopoly

RT: Turkey will pursue non-dollar transactions in trade and investment with other countries, President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said in response to US sanctions. He compared the US’ behavior towards his country to “wild wolves.”
“We need to gradually end the monopoly of the dollar once and for all by using local and national currency among us,” Erdogan said at a business forum in Kyrgyzstan.
According to the Turkish president, a dollar-linked system which was designed to simplify global trade has turned into a major problem. The purpose of manipulating currency rates is to cast doubt on the strong and healthy Turkish economy, Erdogan said.
America behaves like wild wolves. Don’t believe them,” Erdogan said. “Using the dollar only damages us. We will not give up. We will be victorious.”
Turkey is currently struggling with a severe currency crisis triggered by escalating US sanctions. The lira has lost around 42 percent of its value against the US dollar this year as a result of a diplomatic row between Ankara and Washington.
