Muhammad Ali: Float Like A Butterfly…

Every sport has an icon: one person who defines what that sport looks, sounds, and feels like. In the boxing world, there is no single fighter who could be said to have a greater claim to that title than Muhammad Ali. Ali changed the sport of boxing, flipped it on its head, and, in-so-doing became the inspiration of all the young boxers who followed in his “butterfly-like” footsteps. But, perhaps, even more impressively, Muhammad Ali changed the way all athletes are regarded.

The U.S. Election: What Is Going On?

In the United States, there are two main political parties: The Democrats and the Republicans. Each party picks a leader, and then those leaders go head-to-head in a big election for president.

Donald Trump has emerged as the person who will be the leader of the Republic Party in the U.S. The leader of the Democratic Party hasn’t been decided yet; Hilary Clinton seems most likely to win, although Bernie Sanders still stands a chance of winning; there are others still in the race as well, although they are not as likely to win.

The big election will be held on Tuesday, Nov. 8, 2016.
