Page 14 POST-GAZETTE,.DEQMBER 6, 2013 . NEWS BRIEFS WROM 00TAUAN NEWSPAPERS AND OTHERpUBLICATIONS) Compiled by rio Z. Buttafuoco THE MAIN RESIDENCE IN ITALY: IT'S OVERTAXED! Fiscal records list nine kinds of taxes on the main house, which bring into the coffers over 44 billion euro (@ $59 billion) a year. The heaviest tax, the IMU (a municipal tax paid to the national government) has, by itself, provided an excess of 23 billion euro. When the IMU was fh'st introduced only a few years ago, it met the strongest resistance from the then Premier, Berlusconi. Today, despite his judicial prob- lems, Berlusconi has continued to fight this tax, through his party. This tax is now gone. And people are now cel- ebrating. EVEN THE GHOSTS CAN GET MEDICAL ASSISTANCE, IN ITALY: Many people, who have passed away, even many years earlier, continue to receive prescribed medication, from their family doctors. The fraud is so widespread that, in a particular case, a lady born in 1873, was still receiving medical assistance and a pensionl Only in Italy!l UFO's DO NOT EXIST: A RULING BY OBAMA'S WHITE HOUSE! The official announcement from the White House has met a gelid response from those who follow the odyssey of the extraterrestrials. The White House statement said that there is no clear evidence of life outside our planet, Earth. Even the President himself expressed his own skep- ticism when answering questions made by over 5,000 American citizens who had connected with the White House's website "We The People." Obama said there is no evidence of life outside our planet. His official statement seems to indicate that he was in touch with "important events"l But he will never say that "the buck stops here!" That would be a first from him! HOW SCIENCE WILL CHANGE LIFE IN THE NEXT 150 YEARS! An ever increasing number of experts are begin- ning to talk about flying cars, in every garage! Or to make possible to go around in a city, while beautiful flowers, al- beit synthetic, will decorate the boulevards. Increasingly new computers, tiny ones, will be integrated into our bod- ies! They will also assist astronauts to escape from our increasingly warm planet in missions to newer planets that may be discovered. Life in space may become possible, and will certainly encourage earthlings to plan a life in space, or to run away from a nuclear deflagration. We may be lucky to see flying cars as soon as the next 15-20 years. Some have been tested, here in Massachusetts and in Europe, where the first flying cars have successfully passed the first tests. In the next few years we may see more sophis- ticated drones doing unthinkable missions, and more use- ful deeds for mankind. Aside for the sky-high cost to pur- chase flying machines a real problem will seemingly be the chaos that will occur in the sky. Of course, much ad- vanced technology will take care of the sky" traffic. There will definitely be new communication systems that will be more "intelligent" than the present ones. We can also an- ticipate that some wild life extinction will continue. The day isn't far away when the only place we will see wild life will be in protected parks where we can observe felines and other wild beasts, other than zoos. How sadl Stay tuned!

Run date: 12/6/13 Jack Dempsey Last week in my column I mentioned the fact that Roberto Duran, a fighter known as a slugger, was also a great defensive boxer. That got me back to think- ing about something I have brought up in conversations on boxing a number of times, the fact that some of our greatest boxers have been the sluggers. I know, it sounds oxymoronic, but let me take just one example to illustrate my point. Jack Dempsey was known as the Manassa Mauler. He is remembered as one of the most ferocious sluggers of all time. His destruction of Jess Willard while taking the title was one of the most terrify- ing acts of violence ever wit- nessed in the prize ring. But, did Dempsey just rush out and attack Willard? Did he just overwhelm him with ferocity and punching power? No. While he did administer a vicious beat- ing to the Pottawatomie Giant, he did so methodi- cally. Watch a film of the fight and you will see a cau- tious Jack coming out for the first round. He circles big Jess, feinting and circling, bobbing and weaving, mea- suring his distance. It is only after sizing the champion up that he launches his attack. This was no wild punching strong man, Jack was find- ing angles and throwing LEGAL NOTICE Commonwealth of Massachusetts The Trial Court Probate and Family Court Middlesex Division 208 Cambridge Street East Cambridge, MA 02141 (617) 708-5800 Docket No. MI13P4943EA Estate of RALPH VINCENT D'ELIA Also Known As RALPH V.

Run date: 12/6/13 BOBBY ON BOXING Jack Dempsey, Master Boxer by Bobby Franklin short, well timed punches in combinations. He took Jess apart with a well executed plan of attack. He was not taking two to land one. Jack was playing physical chess while using the dynamite he possessed. Four years later Jack would defend his title against the very smooth boxing Tommy Gibbons. Though Dempsey was not able to land a knockout punch, this is one of my favorite Dempsey fights to watch as Jack puts on an amazing display of ring generalship. Gibbons was in this fight just to survive, and when a boxer with Gibbon's skill decides he is going to just last the distance it is next to impossible to put him out. Jack was able to beat the boxer at the boxer's game. He is brilliant in this fight while showing the patience that is the hall- mark of the great boxers. Jack pivots to the side, finds the angles, feints, and spins his man. Not only did he outbox Tommy, but he did it in one sided fashion. Gene Tunney was argu- ably the greatest master boxer who ever lived. He had it all: speed, power, condi- tioning, the ability to take a great punch, and incredible reflexes. He defeated Jack Dempsey to take the crown after Jack had not had a Bobby can be reached fight in three years. Many think Tunney easily out boxed Dempsey in their two encounters, but again, take some time to watch the fdms of their epic battles and you will see Dempsey giving Tunney a very difficult time of it. Their second bout be- came famous as the Battle of the Long Count because Dempsey decked Tunney with a tremendous combi- nation of punches, but since Dempsey failed to go to a neutral corner, Tunney was given extra time in which to recover. Though Jack is mostly remembered for decking Tunney in their second fight, I would argue he should be given credit for his boxing skills against one of the great "boxers". I could go on about Demp- sey and a number of others, but space doesn't permit. What I do hope to accomplish by bringing this subject up, is to get fight fans to think a bit more deeply about what they are witnessing in the ring. What may sometimes look like a display of raw power is quite often a disci- plined attack by a very well schooled boxer. Watch closely the films of Dempsey, LaMotta, Duran, Marciano, and many others with a sharp eye, and I guarantee you will start to see moves you never realized these fighters possessed. at bob2boxer@yahoo.com.
