(NAPSI)—One film star is stepping out of the spotlight to shine a light on homeless pets. It turns out that Josh Duhamel, an actor known for numerous action films, has a serious soft spot when it comes to pet adoption.
(An open letter to Mayor de Blasio)
What do we have to do to get our garbage and recyclables picked up by the Sanitation Department? When we’re told to put them out, we do; take them in, we do. Dig them out from the snow, we do. And what happens? Nothing. They remain uncollected. Sanitation trucks pass through, but don’t pick up.
In any other city, the mayor knows what’s going on, and if employees don’t do their job, they get fired. Today, Friday, Feb. 21, is a recyclable day and garbage pickup day. Much of the snow has melted, so we were hopeful that we would have pickups. We’ve only had three in the past two months!
At 8 a.m., a Sanitation truck appeared. It sped down 97th Street, without picking up anything, so that nobody could read the number on the truck or the license number. At other times, they stop at only even-numbered houses! Or when somebody makes a complaint. And then only that house! If they come around, it is at night, or Saturday, or Sunday. All overtime shifts. Then they pick up only here and there.
A couple of Saturdays ago, a “sanding” truck came around and sanded the road. This was followed by three more trucks in the next three hours, which did nothing but drive through. What a waste of money. The Sanitation budget will soon be depleted, and a filthy city will remain.
What we have is stray cats pawing garbage bags, pigeons pecking at garbage bags and scavengers opening up all bags looking for 5-cent redeemable cans and bottles.
Mr. Mayor, get your priorities straight, and take care of essentials first before you launch new programs. Right now, it’s revolting. A health epidemic could be brewing: rats breeding and expanding their turf.
You’re supposed to know what’s going on in all boroughs ... not just Manhattan and Brooklyn. Sanitation workers are quick to see if there’s no leadership. In the 12 years that Mayor Bloomberg was in office, we only had to call about nonpickups three times.
And yes, we had snow then too.
“Cat” and Zhang Wu love the sliders.
There were red tablecloths, candles, heart-shaped balloons and roses on each table, about what you’d expect on Valentine’s Day at many restaurants. But at White Castle?
Yes, love was the order of the evening at the iconic fast-food establishment in Bayside and throughout the square-steamed hamburger chain. White Castle has been offering its popular Valentine’s special for seven years and reservations are a must.

There’s a concrete courtyard between a nondescript apartment building and some low-slung garages in Central Queens. Just like a million other spots in the borough. Squirrels and birds in the trees behind the garages, cats wandering through: They’re the only signs of life in the nondescript, paved-over spot.
Except for the garden. A narrow strip, about 3 by 20 feet, it sits along one brick wall, in a tough spot, facing north. The ground is bare now, where it’s not covered by snow. But the decorations are there. Twin wind chimes hanging from the fire escape, adorned with colorful little tin cats and fish. A piece of wall art on the brick facade that says “Garden.” Other outdoor knickknacks with an animal motif: a snail, a frog, a butterfly, a dragonfly.
(BPT) - Menopause is a life stage all women experience as they get older. Some navigate this transition with few or no symptoms; many have symptoms including one that hurts: moderate to severe painful sex, a symptom of vulvar and vaginal atrophy (VVA) due to menopause.
Clockwise: Old Man Grey, top left, Black & White, Old Orange, White & Black, Niece, Simba and Big Stripe went missing in the span of two weeks. The colony was fed by Mary Witty and her neighbors.
Like a feline horror movie, the feral cats of Astoria have been disappearing and the neighborhood cat lovers are sick of it.
“Me and several neighbors around the area would feed a colony of eight feral cats,” said Mary Witty, an Astoria resident and cat caretaker. “Then I started noticing that one was missing, but I figured it was trapped in a garage or something, which is common for this time of year.”
A bill to help protect the health and safety of dogs and cats by authorizing local municipalities to adopt more stringent laws to regulate pet dealers was signed into law last Friday by Gov. Cuomo.
It authorizes municipal governments to enact more stringent laws than those currently existing at the state level by removing the current pre-emption on municipalities to enact their own laws regulating or licensing pet dealers. Any new local ordinance must be at least as stringent as state law and must not result in the banning of the sale of dogs and cats raised in a safe and healthy manner.

Street artists and activists are calling the recent paint job on 5Pointz “art genocide” after waking up on Tuesday to learn that the aerosol arts mecca was painted over.
The building, once covered with hundreds of pieces created by artists from around the world, is now nothing more than a storage space for food vendors, and 5Pointz founder Jonathan “Meres” Cohen is feeling the blow.

Before Paul Simon even wrote a song for his 1987 Grammy-winning album, “Graceland” was already making headlines, but not in praise of its music. Instead, he got criticized for flying to South Africa at a time when the UN had a cultural boycott against the country’s apartheid regime. Twenty-five years later, the album was again in the news thanks to the documentary “Under African Skies,” which chronicled the controversy and Simon’s journey back to South Africa. The album was a pivotal moment in Simon’s life, marking an extension to a career that began when he was just a teen.
For many years, Simon’s musical career was intertwined with Art Garfunkel, whom he had first performed with in sixth grade. Simon played the White Rabbit and Art the Chesire Cat in the play, “Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland.” Growing up blocks apart in Kew Gardens Hills, the
pair saw they shared a passion for music and at 15 were performing as Tom and Jerry. Inspired by the Everly Brothers, they wrote “Hey, Schoolgirl,” which reached the Top 50. With no immediate follow-up they took a hiatus, with Simon attending Queens College and Garfunkel Columbia University. Later, the folk scene at Greenwich Village got them performing together again.
“Oh, my God.”
