Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman, Comptroller Thomas DiNapoli and New York City Department of Investigation (NYC DOI) Commissioner Rose Gill Hearn today announced the arrest of a nonprofit executive accused of pocketing taxpayer dollars intended for public services and capital improvements in New York City. A multi-agency joint investigation, including NYC DOI and two federal agencies, exposed the theft of approximately $373,000 in public funds provided by New York State, the New York City Council, and federal earmark grants.
Things sure looked a lot brighter for the Jets a month ago when they went into their bye week with a 5-4 record, as they had just knocked off one of the NFL’s best, the New Orleans Saints. The conventional wisdom was that the two-week break would give Rex Ryan’s troops much-needed rest and a chance for some injured players, such as their best wide receiver, Santonio Holmes, a chance to fully recuperate.
Sadly for the Jets and their fans, things have not gone that way. Gang Green lost badly on the road to both the Buffalo Bills and the Baltimore Ravens. Still, there was no sense of panic because historically the Jets have always had trouble winning in those places. The common thinking was that the Jets would right the ship when they would take on the Miami Dolphins at MetLife Stadium to begin December. A win over Miami would put them in a strong position to earn a playoff berth.
(BPT) - Fake and faux are far apart. Fake is meant to deceive, but faux is intended as a tribute or a toast to something great or beautiful.
(BPT) - The holidays are just around the corner and with the big holiday season comes big spending. Americans spend an average of $737 on holiday gifts, decor, food and more, according to the National Retail Federation.
(BPT) - Creating lists, checking them twice – it’s a tradition for many families across the country this time of year as they plan and shop for gifts for friends and family. Even with the economy starting to recover, many people will set a budget before tackling their holiday shopping, but two-thirds of those that set a budget will likely go over, according to a recent survey.
(BPT) - Americans will spend more than $6 billion this holiday season, according to the National Retail Federation. How much of that will be overspending or outright wasted money? It’s possible to control holiday spending and make smart money decisions this holiday season, if you keep in mind the “three P’s”: plan, purchase and protect.
(NewsUSA) - Feeling like you haven't had this much trouble making a decision since Leno and Letterman first went head-to-head?
(Family Features) When it comes to getting the house clean and tidy, closets often get left off the to-do list. From hall closets and linen closets to bedroom closets, "out of sight, out of mind" thinking quickly leads to clutter - and then frustration when you can't find what you need when you need it.
(NAPSI)—You can save yourself some time, space and effort this holiday season and make entertaining carefree with the help of a few organizing tips aimed at different areas of your home.
Cyber Monday has established itself as the biggest online shopping day of the year, partially because Black Friday is now so spread out (starting on Thanksgiving and lasting through the weekend). Because Cyber Monday has become so commonplace with holiday shoppers, and every retailer participates, it offers us an opportunity to spend the Thanksgiving holiday with family and friends and wait for more big savings online after the weekend. After all, there are plenty of holiday gift items on sale well into December.
More and more people are connecting with work and family while on the go. The availability of different apps for smartphones makes it possible to conduct business, make lists, schedule meetings and contact family members when a change of plans occurs, all while sitting in an office meeting, waiting for an appointment or heading home on the bus.
Could learning to drive and parallel park in Queens be good practice for docking a Space Shuttle at the International Space Station? Maybe, but it really takes a lot of education and The Right Stuff — both of which Ozone Park native Charles Camarda has in spades.
Camarda was a crew member aboard the Space Shuttle Discovery on the historic Return to Space Flight of July 26 to Aug. 9, 2005, the first shuttle mission since the tragic loss of the Columbia and its crew on Feb. 1, 2003. The flight was designed not only as a rendezvous with the ISS but as a test for new protocols meant to avoid any repeat of the Columbia disaster, which was caused by a piece of insulation that broke off during launch, damaging part of the shuttle’s hull and causing it to burn up on re-entry.
(BPT) - The holiday season is a time for celebrating with loved ones, but family and friends aren’t always nearby. Although you may not be able to spend the holidays together in-person, there are still plenty of ways to show out-of-town loved ones you care. With a thoughtful approach, you can find easy ways to spread some holiday cheer, whether your nearest and dearest live across the street, across the country or even across the globe.
(BPT) - Peppermint may grab the glamour as a flavor of choice during the holiday seasons, but when it comes to sheer staying power in the hearts of the American public, it’s hard to beat chocolate. While many of us consider chocolate welcome and appropriate at any time of year, this most delightful sweet can take center stage during the holidays. Whether you give it as a gift, serve it on a holiday buffet or make it the centerpiece of your seasonal decor, chocolate is always on trend.
Three kings of rock ’n’ roll from across the pond — Sting, Paul McCartney and Elton John — have coincidentally all released new albums at practically the same time. Here’s a look at ’em, mates.
From left to right: Sting “The Last Ship” (A&M), Paul McCartney “New” (MPL) and Elton John “The Diving Board” (Capitol).
Before I refute his “facts” I have a few questions to ask letter writer Ed Konecnik (“Save the Republic,” Letters, Oct. 24).
During the “so-called” (his words) government shutdown, in which the Teabaggers in Congress made us the laughingstock of the world (even Iraq’s government is paying its bills, never shutting down despite wars, revolutions and elections) did we not lose the “so-called” amount of $24 billion from our economy? Was that not an amount that could have paid for Obamacare for every previously uninsured American twice over? Were “so-called” children with “so-called” cancer not denied treatment during the “so called” shutdown?
Let’s turn our attention to Ted Cruz. Recently a court stenographer was hauled off the House floor and to the nuthouse after ranting about God, country and Freemasons. Where were the men in white coats when future GOP presidential candidate Cruz, who while addressing Congress during his historic 21-hour filibuster, uttered words that will go down in history with those of Jefferson, Washington, Adams and Franklin? Quote: “I do not like green eggs and ham ...”
And if Cruz and the rest of the GOP had so much confidence Obamacare was going to fail, why are they putting so much effort into stopping it? Because it’s really going to help people. That’s why. Americans have waited 70 years for affordable healthcare, but now if the website makes you wait an hour Republicans want to scrap the whole thing. The immorality of Republicans, trying to convince young people into not buying health insurance!
As for the debt: Where was all the Republican outrage when Duh-bya and the GOP were running up this debt? They left Obama this mess, and fought everything he did from day one! The reason people are out of work is because the top 2 percent ship jobs overseas! Food stamp enrollment is at a record high because billionaires need to buy a new yacht every year.
Typical Republicans, blaming Democrats for the problems Republicans caused. As for calling Konecnik a racist? Where did that come from? Perhaps he has a guilty conscience. Finally, I would’ve gladly accepted his challenge to refute his facts. Sadly, his letter didn’t contain any.
As for us living in a Constitutional republic? Since when are Republicans concerned with the Constitution? We live in a democracy!
And to Larry Penner, funny how you mention $147,000 going to Frank Lautenberg’s widow (“Let them vote cleanly,” Letters, Oct. 24) but neglect to mention the $3 billion (that’s billion) Mitch McConnell stuck in at the last second for his state.
(BPT) - Thanksgiving comes late this year, which means a shorter-than-usual holiday shopping season. If you’re not the type to buy gifts throughout the year, getting an early start on holiday shopping can help ensure you have enough time to find gifts for everyone on your list - and perhaps, most importantly, save money.
While time alone can be refreshing and liberating, more often, people crave company. That’s especially true when it comes to traveling. In addition to providing the comfort and assurance of numbers, traveling with others can be deeply enriching, as we share experiences and view new sights through others’ perspectives.
