Cuomo has announced that New Yorkers can ditch their masks after all: Report

New York residents can now apparently ditch their facemasks as much of America roils with following newly put out CDC guidelines. The new guidelines in New York City likely will have some form of a verification process for businesses, who, will be required to verify if people are vaccinated. That verification will probably come from the city's Excelsior Pass -- which is already functioning for major events and concert halls. The further announcement is expected within days as New York has managed to vaccinate millions and most are following guidelines. The Governors office confirmed that masks will still be required in hospitals; public transit, and the usual areas where people have no choice but to informally mass gather. New York is the latest state to follow the new...

AOC: We fought for more payments to Americans, Republicans flat out refused

Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez has been one of the top vocal critics about the stimulus bill, but not because she didn't want the bill. According to Ocasio-Cortez, she and other leading Democrats in Washington fought for more payments and even higher initial payments... none of which Republicans were going for. EPA/ERIK S. LESSER “I’m telling you right now, and as you probably already know, $1,200 in New York City is not enough,” the congresswoman said during an Instagram Live Q/A session Thursday night. “We fought for recurring payments. In fact, what we fought for was $2,000 per person, in addition to more monthly, recurring payments,” she said. “And again, the Trump Administration and Mitch McConnell’s Senate and the Republicans refused, absolutely refused to entertain th...

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.

Lawyer attempts to defend Anna Sorokin, NYC ‘s ‘Soho Grifter”

Wednesday marked opening statements in the Soho Grifter trial, and, just as one would humorously expect they were absolutely made for T.V. In the defense's opening statement, they reportedly tried to defend Sorokin 's bizarre scam citing "she had to do it her way". Todd Spodek explained, "In her world this is what her social circle did. Everyone’s life was perfectly curated for social media. People were fake. People were phony. And money was made on hype alone.” While this may ring true in Delvey's delusional world, uh,  that isn't quite what prosecutors are trying to paint.   According to prosecutors, "In short, she stole, she stole from banks, she stole from hotels, she stole from friends, she tried to steal from a hedge fund." It is widely believed that Sorokin ("aka Anna Delvey) m...

Bitchy football heiress arrested for assault, possibly a hate crime

NEW YORK --  In tradition of the how-to-be-an-annoying-heiress handbook,  Jacqueline Kent-Cooke, (the football heiress), proved that just like every other heiress --   life is all about themselves. According to the New York Daily News,   Jacqueline apparently got into a pretty wicked  fight that turned violent over the New Years holiday.  In that fight,  Kent-Cooke apparently violently assaulted a man with a $300 glass clutch.   That incident, per police reports, left him pretty bloodied up and there was also apparently an  anti-semantic remark made. In New York State, such remarks are highly illegal and considered potential hate crimes.   The New York Daily News confirmed Cooke-Kent is indeed being investigated for a hate crime.

New York Governor orders state’s minimum wage to $15

NEW YORK -- Interesting news in New York City today.  According to Governor Andrew Cuomo,   New York is on par to become the latest state to mandate  a $15 minimum wage.  The announcement came from Cuomo,  during a press conference,  in which he had this to say about the city's startlingly low pay. The current minimum wage in the state of New York ... in our opinion does not afford one the ability to live a decent life," Cuomo said, per CBS New York. "You can't raise a family on $18,000 a year in the state of New York. So we want to raise the minimum wage, which in and of itself would affect 2.3 million workers." New York is now just one of many states ordering a pay hike for low pay workers,  in an age,  where Americans mus t hold thr...
