The SculptureCenter recently unveiled several new artworks as part of its fall exhibition.
“I know they call us ‘Hollywood East’ but soon they’ll be calling Hollywood ‘New York City West’,” Sen. Chuck Schumer (D-NY) joked in Kaufman Studio’s Stage K on Tuesday.
The senator, joined by founder George Kaufman, Kaufman Astoria Studios President Hal Rosebluth and city and state representatives, cut the ribbon on Kaufman Studios’ new outdoor lot — the first backlot ever in New York City.
(NAPSI)—Every year since 1973, thousands of girls and young women from elementary school through college and beyond participate in the Colgate Women’s Games. Now in its 40th season, the series has helped countless students succeed academically, by providing a safe and healthy athletic program that motivates them to make the right personal lifestyle choices.
(BPT) - Looking back on 2013, billions of Internet searches from around the world reveal it was a year of American songs, superhero movies, social media love, high-end designer brands, controversial sports stars, European getaways and fierce women.
It seems as if you can’t be a key player for the St. John’s Red Storm unless head coach Steve Lavin has suspended you for at least one game for mysteriously violating team rules. Last year guard D’Angelo Harrison missed the last few games of the regular season, along with St. John’s futile appearance in the postseason NIT. Earlier this season center Chris Obepka was suspended for a pair of exhibition games for unsaid infractions.
This past Friday night it was hyped rookie guard Rysheed Jordan’s turn to sit out a game for unspecified bad deeds. Jordan, a big-time Philadelphia high school star, was supposed to be the best recruit to come to St. John’s since Lavin became head coach four years ago. Lavin and the St. John’s Sports Information Department decided before this season started that the media would not be able to interview him until January 2014 at the earliest. Obviously putting Rysheed in a cocoon has not been the foolproof plan that the St. John’s coaching staff thought it would be. At press time, Lavin did not indicate when Jordan would be reinstated.
The first set of meetings between the groups leading the study of a proposed High Line-style park on the former Rockaway Beach rail corridor and the residents who live along the line started a little on the rocky side.
Before the conglomerate of organizations, led by urban park advocacy group The Trust for Public Land and the plan’s backers, Friends of the QueensWay, even began their short presentation in Woodhaven’s Emanuel Baptist Church on Nov. 12, they were shouted down by a handful of residents who thought the workshop was a public forum.
“The ooooonly reason that I decided to come to Brooklyn was to win an NBA championship!” future Hall of Fame forward Kevin Garnett declared to the press at Nets media day on Sept. 30. He was speaking as well for his fellow ex-Celtics, Paul Pierce and Jason Terry, who came to Brooklyn in the big trade that occurred last June.
But based on what we’ve seen in the first three weeks, the Nets look to be far from a lock to make the NBA playoffs, let alone win a championship. Garnett seems to be a shell of himself as he has had trouble putting the ball in the basket while rookie head coach Jason Kidd has gingerly limited his playing minutes. The same can be said of Pierce and Terry. While it is understandable that Kidd wants to be careful how he utilizes his older players to avoid injury, they will not shake off the rust unless they start playing more minutes.
In the crowded common area of the Fortune Society in Long Island City on Nov. 14, an audience takes in a performance of William Shakespeare’s “Much Ado About Nothing.”
Claudio, the male lead, has just found out that his wife-to-be, Hero, has slept with another man.
(BPT) - Home decor can convey many different emotions - from warmth and comfort on cold and dreary winter days to elegance and festiveness during the holiday season. The colors and materials you use set the stage; everything from the textures that appear in the accessories, the arrangement of the furniture and even how sound reverberates in a room.
Don’t look now, but the Giants, who started the season by losing their first six games, have now won three straight after beating the Oakland Raiders 24-20 at MetLife Stadium last Sunday.
The game was not as close as the score indicated. While Giants QB Eli Manning had an average day for him in terms of passing statistics, he did not have to do much as running back Andre Brown came off the injured reserve list to rush for over 100 yards.
(StatePoint) Whether the students in your life are in high school and dreaming about their future majors, or in the middle of their college careers, the holiday season is a great opportunity to shower them with gifts that quench their thirst for knowledge and foster their academic interests.
(BPT) - When faced with struggles, people often turn to others for support, comfort and guidance. There is great value in knowing you’re not alone especially for patients with chronic diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis (RA). RA is a chronic, inflammatory form of arthritis in which the immune system attacks the body’s own tissues, causing fluid buildup in the joints and pain and inflammation throughout the body.
With two outs in the ninth inning of Game 6 of the 1986 World Series, Mookie Wilson stepped up to the plate. The Mets trailed the Boston Red Sox 5-4, but with runners on first and third, Wilson had a chance to become a postseason hero with a hit. After a wild pitch allowed the tying run to score and the possible winning run to advance to second base, the game was in Wilson’s hands.
On the ninth pitch of the at-bat, Wilson hit a slow ground ball to Red Sox first baseman Bill Buckner.
If only fairy tales could last forever in real life as they do in the world of make-believe, Queens native Fran Drescher would have undoubtedly taken her place alongside the likes of Cinderella and Sleeping Beauty.
By the time Drescher was attending Hillcrest High School in Jamaica, she was a beauty pageant contestant, nearly capturing the title of Miss New York Teenager in 1973.
She was just a Corona girl working in her family’s hardware store with a chemist for an uncle before she was EstÈe Lauder. But she became the co-founder of a company worth $8 billion selling products all over the world.
Born Josephine Esther Mentzer and changing her first name to EstÈe, adapted from her nickname, Esty, the young woman was in high school when she started to sell beauty products in salons. She would demonstrate them on women while they were using hair dryers — a concept of touching and showing the customer the products that is still used by the company to this day.
(BPT) - The word garage, when looked up in the dictionary, has a simple meaning: a building or indoor area for parking or storing motor vehicles. By and large, this definition sums up exactly what comes to mind for most folks when they hear the word. But for some folks, garages are so much more than a space to park the family minivan and store the cumbersome and unattractive trash and recycling bins. Instead, they are functioning spaces of the home that, in the eye of the homeowner, serve just as much purpose as a kitchen or a bathroom and deserve just as much attention to detail.
Flushing Meadows Corona Park is not only a great place to have a leisurely walk, visit the Hall of Science or see the US Open and the Mets.
It also may be home to something a bit more paranormal.
(StatePoint) Gaming has never been more engaging, more realistic, or had as many options as it does today.
Legends in Major League Baseball are born in October. From riveting seven-game series to late-inning heroics, unforgettable moments in baseball history happen during the playoffs culminating in the most prestigious baseball event, the World Series.
(Family Features) Economic uncertainty has become the norm in today's global monetary system. Financial expert and author Mike Maloney believes the actions of Congress and the Federal Reserve will only make things worse and will wreak havoc on the lives of ordinary people.
The Jets entered last Sunday’s game with the then 0-4 Pittsburgh Steelers with a surprising 3-2 record although in fairness all three of the wins weren’t decided until the final minutes of the game and the results could easily have swung against Gang Green.
Rookie quarterback Geno Smith, who was pressed into the starting role when Mark Sanchez was lost for the season after injuring his shoulder — when the Jets third-string offensive line could not protect him in the fourth quarter of a meaningless preseason game with the Giants — and was forced to have surgery on it, is not ready for a high-profile NFL starting spot. But the Jets have no choice but to hope he can learn quickly on the job. He has shown flashes of brilliance, but on Sunday he reminded Jets fans of his predecessor when he threw a pair of interceptions when the Jets appeared to be driving for touchdowns in the their 19-6 loss Sunday.
(BPT) - Have you ever watched an amazing nature documentary and wondered how filmmakers captured such incredible scenes and compelling stories? Have you ever wished you could visit some of those same places yourself, to truly experience the wonders of the natural world with all five senses?
Although it was a foregone conclusion that Mets ace pitcher Matt Harvey would need Tommy John surgery to repair damage on his pitching elbow and miss the entire 2014 season, many Mets fans on social media, along with a good number of sportswriters, reacted as if they had just learned that the sky was falling. You would have thought these folks were expecting a parade down the Canyon of Heroes next November if Harvey were part of the Mets rotation in 2014.
The success rate for Tommy John surgery is reportedly over 90 percent. Given Harvey’s competitive nature, which probably breeds the arrogance that I wrote about a couple of weeks ago, I fully expect him to be as good, if not better, when he returns to the mound in 2015.
