Classic cars bolster Bergenline Avenue in North Bergen for 4th year…

first_img By John Heinis – October 14, 2019 2:36 pm 0 Facebook Twitter Classic cars bolstered Bergenline Avenue in North Bergen for the fourth year in a row yesterday, with proceeds from the event going towards the Special Olympics. “The proceeds go towards the Special Olympics. So every registration fee, $20 for a car or motorcycle, that goes automatically to the Special Olympics – proceeds for children,” Board of Chosen Freeholders Chair Anthony Vainieri (D-8) explained.“We use Bergenline Avenue because of the background of the park and our businesses feed off of Bergenline Avenue. It’s a great event, as you can see, and it’s getting larger and larger and larger.”Over 300 classic cars and motorcycles registered for the event this year, with models including a 1948 Plymouth, 1928 Ford Sedan Delivery and a 1994 Buick Roadmaster – the latter being a car that state Senator (D-32)/Mayor Nick Sacco had rode in before.“This is the best one ever: we have over 300 cars, we’re stretched from 87th Street down to 79th Street and there’s some really great cars here. I’m looking at my old favorite, the 1994 Buick Roadmaster,” he began.“I had probably the last model and when it went, you couldn’t do anything with it, you just had to sell it off for parts.”The event, which also featured food vendors, music and the carnival at James J. Braddock Park just a stone’s throw away, also recognized those who brought their cars out of the garage by giving out 70 awards across a myriad of different categories.

NYCHA tenants say they were duped into RNC video appearance

first_imgHUD’s Lynne Patton and of Frederick Douglass Houses resident Claudia Perez (Getty; RNC)New York City public housing residents say Lynne Patton tricked them into appearing in a video that aired at the Republican National Convention last week.Three of the four New York City Housing Authority tenants who appeared in the segment, which aired Thursday, said they were not given advance notice that the interviews they provided to Patton herself would be used for the convention, the New York Times reported. The video focused on conditions in the city’s notoriously neglected public housing.Read moreNYCHA tenants with zero income pay zero rentNYCHA wants to create “citywide clearinghouse” for its 80M sf of air rightsNYCHA head: Agency now needs $40B in repairs “I am not a Trump supporter,” Claudia Perez, a resident of Frederick Douglass Houses in Manhattan, told the New York Times. “I am not a supporter of his racist policies on immigration. I am a first-generation Honduran. It was my people he was sending back.”She said that while she stood by her criticisms of NYCHA, the way the video was edited made it seem like she was praising President Donald Trump’s record on public housing while bashing Mayor Bill de Blasio.Patton, a longtime associate of Trump, denied that she misled the tenants, saying that they knew that their interviews would be shown at the convention “to increase awareness of the inhumane conditions that Mayor de Blasio has allowed for far too long.”?

The Disco Biscuits Announce ‘Take You Out To The Ball Game’ Live Stream From Citizens Bank Park

first_imgThe Disco Biscuits will take the infield diamond next week for their Take You Out To The Ball Game live stream. The jamtronica mainstays will perform at Citizens Bank Park, home of the Philadelphia Phillies, on Tuesday, June 23rd at 7:45 pm ET.This announcement comes after the band wrapped up their You Got I, I Got You Virtual Tour 2020 at the end of May. The 10-week digital “tour” featured re-broadcasts of Disco Biscuits shows from 2001—2015.Related: SPAGA Delivers Cosmic Two-Song Set At Quarantine Comes Alive [Watch]The free concert will mark the first time the band has played together since a three-night run at Chicago’s Riviera Theatre on January 2nd–4th. The band was set to wrap up a 2019-2020 winter tour—their first full-fledged tour in years—with several shows in North Carolina and Maryland later that month, but the run was derailed by bassist Marc Brownstein‘s health issues. Following his appearances on Jam Cruise, Brownstein underwent emergency eye surgery for a detached retina. The band was forced to postpone the final four shows of the tour to a later date, back before that had become the norm. Then, as The Biscuits were about to kick off a spring and summer tour, dubbed Act 1, the COVID-19 pandemic hit just before the opening three-night run in the band’s home town of Philadelphia.Now, the band is back playing together again—with a home field advantage. In addition to the use of the Major League infield, The Disco Biscuits will also have access to amenities from the ballpark and the Phillies, including Phillies jerseys for each member and use of the Phanavision and other iconic signage. The band will also receive an introduction from Phillies announcer Dan Baker to start the show.Take You Out To The Ball Game will serve as a fundraiser for the PLUS1 For Black Lives fund, which spreads information and action by empowering Black communities and aims to keep people out of the criminal justice system. Citizens Bank Park and the Philadelphia Phillies are also sponsoring the fundraiser, along with Live Nation. Donations to PLUS1 For Black lives can be made here online or by texting DISCO to 50155 before, during, or after the show.last_img read more

Saint Mary’s class raises $10,000 for Bengal Bouts

first_imgThe Professional Sales and Management course at Saint Mary’s rallied together to donate $10,000 to Bengal Bouts, but seniors Madison Marshall and Sarah Sniegowski raised $2,000 — the most of any team in the 20-person class — and took the uppercut of the sales.The class’s professor, Michael Montalbano, encouraged his students to engage in — rather than just read about — successful sales techniques, Marshall said.“He wants to give us the most real-life experience in sales because you can only teach so much … from a book,” Marshall said. “He does a great job pushing us to get out there and actually do sales. That’s the best way to learn: by actually doing it.”Selling tickets and ad space, along with soliciting donations, served as integral goals throughout the process, Marshall said, but she and Sniegowski never lost sight of the most valuable objective: helping fund children’s education.“Working for this cause was obviously a group project, and we could have just done it for a grade, but we took away way more,” she said. “It’s easier to sell when it’s something you actually care about.”Knowing their efforts would help others helped the class to maintain focus, Sniegowski said.“My biggest selling point when I was asking for donations was ‘Just $15 is enough money to send a child to school, feed them and house them in Bangladesh for a month,’” Sniegowski said. “When you set a goal, and you have the right mindset and purpose and passion, you can do anything.”The College’s fundamental ambition to cultivate generous hearts and capable minds aligns perfectly with this particular assignment, Sniegowski said.“Saint Mary’s really empowers us women to become the best versions of ourselves, and as we go out and set the world on fire, literally, we can do anything because of what we’ve had here at Saint Mary’s,” she said. Marshall said Montalbano served as a reliable adviser throughout the process, but ultimately, the money was for the students to raise.“He tracked our progress and basically graded us on how much we sold, which I love because, in the real world, it’s not about effort as much as it is about results,” she said. “I’ve already learned so much from our first project, and I can’t wait to see what the other two will be.”Sniegowski said appreciating incremental progress and trusting the process of gradual improvement made the project a meaningful and fulfilling one.“The first thing Montalbano said at the beginning of class was ‘You’re going to fail more times than you’re going to succeed,’” Sniegowski said. “So we kind of went into it knowing that we’re not going to get every single sale, but every sale we get is going to make the biggest difference.”The assignment sparked interest in and ignited excitement about the field of sales, Marshall said.“I was so hesitant to be in sales in general because normally for marketing — that’s my major — you start with sales jobs, and I was so against it,” Marshall said. “I forced myself to take this class because it’s a good skill to have, and I’m learning way more than I thought I would.”Marshall said she looks forward to applying her refined skills to a future career.“Sales is going out of your comfort zone and talking to people, and you have to be confident,” Marshall said. “Saint Mary’s teaches women to be confident, and the sales class directly reflects that.”Tags: Bengal Bouts, professional sales and management, saint mary’s department of business, Saleslast_img read more

News Scan for Aug 26, 2014

first_imgAnother MERS case reported in Saudi ArabiaSaudi Arabia reported another MERS-CoV (Middle East respiratory syndrome coronavirus) case today, the second in 2 days, following a 13-day spell without any cases.The new case involves a 52-year-old Saudi woman in Dammam, the same location as the case reported yesterday in a 60-year-old man. The new patient, who is not a healthcare worker, is hospitalized and has a preexisting disease, the Saudi Ministry of Health (MOH) said.The MOH statement did not indicate whether the woman has any connection to the 60-year-old man, nor did it give any other details about her.The new illness lifts Saudi Arabia’s MERS count to 725 cases, including 301 deaths, 399 recovered patients, and 25 patients still in treatment. Aug 26 Saudi MOH statement MOH MERS page with case count Study: Lab cats can contract equine flu virus H3N8Ten years ago the equine influenza virus (EIV) A/H3N8, a common cause of respiratory infections in horses, turned up in dogs. Now Chinese researchers report that domestic cats in a lab setting are susceptible to the same virus and can spread it to other cats.Writing in Emerging Infectious Diseases, the researchers report that they inoculated six cats intranasally with H3N8. A day later, they placed five pathogen-free cats in the same cages, and they kept three other cats in a separate room to serve as controls.Both the inoculated cats and the contact cats became infected, as evidenced by typical signs of influenza, virus shedding, and histopathologic changes in the trachea and lungs, the report says. Clinical signs of illness developed from 2 to 9 days after infection in the inoculated cats and from 4 to 9 days after infection in the contact cats, but the illness was less severe in the contact cats. The control cats showed no evidence of infection.The authors said it’s not surprising that the cats became infected, since feline infections with various influenza A viruses have been reported before.”However, our finding of horizontal transmission of EIV among cats is significant,” they added. “If transmission occurs outside the laboratory, and if the basic reproduction rate is higher than 1.0, then EIV could potentially establish itself and circulate in this new host species.”Why cats, unlike dogs, have not been infected naturally by H3N8 remains to be determined, but it could be because of lower transmission efficiency or feline behavior, the authors wrote. Aug 26 Emerg Infect Dis study  WHO: Flu activity rising in the Southern HemisphereInfluenza levels continue to increase in the Southern Hemisphere, but with different viruses predominating in different regions, the World Health Organization (WHO) said yesterday in a global flu update.H3N2 was the most frequently detected virus in South Africa and South America, though some countries in South America are also seeing the 2009 H1N1 virus circulate. Australia and New Zealand are experiencing predominantly 2009 H1N1 activity. Australia reported lower overall activity levels than last season, consistent with expected seasonal patterns. In New Zealand, clinic visits for flulike illness are running slightly above the seasonal baseline.In North America, flu activity is at interseasonal levels, with activity in Mexico at levels higher than expected, with influenza B as the main virus. Though tropical parts of the Americas and the Caribbean reported low levels of flu, several countries reported increasing circulation of influenza B.Flu in southern China is decreasing but is still high compared with earlier years. The H3N2 strain has been predominant. Low flu activity was reported in most other parts of the world.Globally, analysis of flu viruses detected from late July through early August showed that more than 90% were influenza A and that 83% of the 3,170 subtyped influenza A samples were H3N2. Of the 39 influenza B viruses subtyped, 37 (95%) belonged to the Yamagata lineage, the lineage recommended for the Northern Hemisphere’s trivalent influenza vaccine.Aug 25 WHO global flu updatelast_img read more
