And i still dont think he's worthy of going into the HOF.
You're right. But im no voter so....
Interesting take. I am curious to know if/why you think Pitino deserves to be a Hall of Famer.
Did you not think Pitino belonged in either?
They have very similar resumes.
Gentrification refers to the physical, social, economic and cultural
phenomenon where by working class and / or inner-city neighbourhoods are
converted into more affluent middle class communities by remodeling
building, resulting in increased property values and in the displacement
of the poor.
(Absolute Astronomy, 2005)
It was Ruth Glass (1964) who was first believed to have brought the
issue of gentrification to the fore with definitions such as the one
One by one, many of the working class quarters of London have been invaded by the middle-classes - upper and lower.
Shabby, modest mews and cottages - two rooms up and two down - have
been taken over, when their leases have expired, and have become
residences Once this process of 'gentrification' starts in a
district it goes on rapidly until all or most of the original
working-class occupiers are
displaced and the whole social character of the district is changed.
This displacement of the working class and the rehabilitation of
poorer and derelict housing has led to the transformation of an area
into a middle - class
neighbourhood. (Smith, 1996)
Gentrification has been described by Slater, (2002) as a
fascinating, powerful and often frighteningly rapid process which plays
an important role in
fashioning the physical and social form of cities. Like the more
widespread process of suburbanization, it is a process which has had a
profound impact on
the lives of urban residents in hundreds of cities.
Scale of Gentrification in London
According to Butler and Robson (2003a) there are four social 'fields
of human activity these are: housing, employment, education and
consumption. It will
therefore be these factors which are discussed here in identifying
the scale of gentrification in the London area.
Ruth Glass' (1964) statement shows the effect that gentrification
has had on the housing market: it is the process by which the original,
working-class residents, are displaced from neighbourhoods by rising
costs and other forces directly related to an influx of new, wealthier
Housing market is therefore an excellent indication of the change in
an area, based on the contention that working class people can no
longer to afford to
live in these areas with rising rents and house prices. Atkinson
(2000) has tried to measure the gentrification of an area through
displacement of certain types of people.
London has experienced massive de-industrialisation, but has also
seen rapid expansion of business and financial services such as banking,
and management consultancies as well as the continued growth of a
number of creative industries such as advertising, film and videos
fashion and design. (Hamnett,1999)
Cities such as London have been characterised by the transformation
of their industrial occupational, income and residential structure. The
rise of cities
such as this with their cultural interests and housing market
demands has, in large part, been responsible for the growth of
post-industrial inner cities.
Also of importance in discussing the scale of gentrification is the
on going social processes through which formerly deprived or undesirable
transformed and made congenial to the requirements of middle - class
life. (Butler and Robson,2001) such as employment, education and
Schools and education are major issues in gentrification. Butler and Robson (2003b) highlight this problem.
Inner London is different from the rest of the country in that it is
only relatively recently that it has acquired middle -class households
being left with what is widely seen as an education system which is
seen as amongst the worst performing, particularly at secondary level,
in the United
Middle - class households have the assets to be able to find non -
local schools or use the private education system. Working - class
families do not have
these same resources available and therefore these children are not
being given the same opportunities as their middle - class peers to
obtain a higher
standard of education, and therefore the education infrastructures
of the areas are being transformed.
Employment patterns have also undergone notable changes. In Inner
London, a decline has taken place amongst the skilled, manual and
groups whilst the growth in recent years, has occurred amongst the
professional middle class. (Butler and Robson,2003b)
However it has been noted by Sassen (1991) who suggested that
changes in the labour market of 'global cities' results in social
polarisation is the various ways in which many areas are becoming
more socially distinct over time. In this case we are seeing areas with
small middle - class population, becoming 'richer' as the middle -
class population increases and the working - class population decreases.
Hamnett, (1999) states many residents work in business or creative
industries in the central city or its environs, and have long or
irregular hours and
therefore want to live close to work and the cultural and
entertainment facilities offered by the central city. He goes on to note
that traditional central
areas are expensive and in short supply. Consequently, the new
middle class have sought out new living opportunities in the inner city.
OP now trying to convince the UL contingent that he's a Card fan by trolling BBN. Trying way too hard, man.
I like cal but I don't think he should go first ballot. And for those who think he has a similar resume as Pitino is just crazy. Only thing he has over Pitino is head to head wins. Oh, and you dont forget about two erased final fours over night.
Pitino's time at Hawaii was marred by a 1977NCAA report on sanctions against the program. According to the report, Pitino was implicated in 8 of the 64 infractions that led the University to be placed on probation. The violations involving Pitino included providing round-trip air fare for a player between New York and Honolulu, arranging for student-athletes to receive used cars for season tickets, and handing out coupons to players for free food at McDonald's. He was also cited, along with the head coach, Bruce O'Neil, for providing misinformation to the NCAA andUniversity of Hawaii officials. Also in 1977, the NCAA infractions committee recommended that Pitino and O'Neil be disassociated from Hawaii athletics. In 1989, Pitino would dismiss the report, saying "I didn't make any mistakes, I don't care what anybody says."
Do they overlook 8 infractions and lying to the NCAA?
Meh. His nomination will just get vacated.
It this a right of passage for UofL fans?
Well, why don't you take a flying leap and simply stick it!
Gosh if that is not baiting mods, I don't know what baiting is.
If he were still at Memphis you Kentucky folks would say the same thing.
I never did and few on the UK message board did. That crap only happens in UofL fans heads.
Jealousy is written all over you dirty bird fan!!
He won't win anymore so no need to worry.
As a UK fan I actually feel sorry for the Cards fans. Not a day goes by that their coach doesn't wish with all his heart
he was still coaching at the school they hate the most.
Sad little fan base; 2nd in their city, 2nd in their state, 2nd in their coach's heart.
Hmm. Tell us how you really feel.
Taneytown will disappear for another three years after this season. Did this same after '12. He smells like fish.
