Surprise! Children can no longer get married in New York City

If that headline had you checking your iPhone to tell you what year it was never fear you are far from alone. In 2021, many were surprised to learn this week that child marriage was still legal in New York City. In fact -- multiple websites report that the act is still legal in a majority of America (only 6 states prohibit such from happening.) But this week Andrew Cuomo signed a law into legislation that otherwise blocks child marriages from happening. In the states (including New York before they outlawed it) children beginning usually at the age of 14 could marry. It is perhaps one of the archaic holdovers from the previous century where such was not entirely frowned upon. Called Nalia's Law (a young woman who survived the very definition of child marriage) the law takes e...

Twitter users react to the #gasshortage that is spreading across much of eastern America at gas station (s)

Twitter is the place where you can find live reactions and such as they're happening in almost any part of the active world. Along the east coast -- Americans are waking up to the nightmare scenario of climbing gas prices and reported shortages in multiple areas. It's worth noting that a deceptive article has appeared in the New York Times claiming there aren't snaked lines for gas amid the reported shortages. https://twitter.com/nytimes/status/1392108492773810176?s=20 https://twitter.com/TailsWindsFI/status/1391867625328762883?s=20 But then there's also this. https://twitter.com/Granneypuckett/status/1392122506878783490?s=20 But then there's also this... https://twitter.com/GSuskinWSOC9/status/1391929316242563073?s=20 Stretching back into South Carolina...

GRAPHIC VIDEO: Liberty High School, in Osceola Florida, sees officer violently bodyslam female student on video

School resource officers in recent years in the United States have become increasingly aggressive as have real life police outside of schools. In the case of an unidentified female student at Liberty High School in Osceola Florida, the latest instance of such has been captured on video. https://twitter.com/LouluNevy/status/1354151284304203777 The local sheriff 's office maintains that it is in the beginning stages of an investigation but it is unclear what caused this to happen. As many have pointed out in the thread you see above, there is quite literally nothing that would justify such excessive force against a student at high school.

Teen in Duluth GA arrested for scamming $1M from local Kroger

But many have been left wondering what exactly does Kroger sell that would ever even come to equal $1m. According to police in Duluth Georgia, Tre Brown used his gig at a local Kroger to apparently create fake returns and then put them on numerous credit cards as a result (it is unclear where he got that many credit cards.) He was initially arrested on 14 January after store workers noticed the false transactions. Tre Brown GA: Teen scams Kroger out of almost $1 million Brown per police documents is accused of faking returns to the tune of $75 to over $87,000 each. A substantial amount of money has since been returned to the store -- but again -- many are still wondering what they sell that equals such a sum.

World Premier of Sing! Goddess

Greek mythology is something I have been fascinated with since elementary school. I remember there was one book, the only one of its kind, in the school library that I still have yet to return. Yikes! Those late fees are most likely outstandingly gross. Ines Braun & Erin Capistrano have created a work that is all-encompassing of what a night out to the theater should feel like, bringing together of communities through storytelling. Braun and Capistrano's new work takes audiences on a journey of how would the forces or powers to operate if there were no male head figure involved. The duo craft of adding complex layers of richness by embodying the goddesses with the actors' humanity makes for both entertaining and educational theater. Having worked with Ines and Erin before, I know very ...

The Classical Theater of Harlem The Bacchae Review

In New York City, there are several parks renowned for its cultural activities.  Harlem's Marcus Garvey Park Richard Rogers Amphitheater comes to life, this season with its annual outdoor Shakespeare in the Park. This summer presentation by The Classical Theater of Harlem invites New Yorkers to ponder over Freedom, Ecstasy, Anarchy vs Law, Order, and Control…who wins? Rather, who survives in The Bacchae. First produced in 405 BC, Euripides' Bacchae tells the ancient story of the arrival of Dionysus, the god of wine and intoxication, in Greece. When Dionysus comes to the city of Thebes, he liberates the people from their homes, sending the citizens - dancing and drinking - into the hills. A young king, named Pentheus, tries to subdue the revelry and restore order to his city, waging ...
