Today, as the next step in Mayor de Blasio and the Taskforce on Racial Inclusion & Equity’s (TRIE) efforts to connect families in hard-hit neighborhoods to the resources and supports they need, the NYC Administration for Children’s Services (ACS) released its RFP to expand the “Family Enrichment Center” (FEC) model from three sites to twelve sites in the coming year. Over the next three years, FECs will be expanded to a total of 30 sites. ACS is seeking local community-based providers, with deep ties to their communities, to run the new sites.

FECs, which were launched in 2017, are warm, home-like walk-in centers that are co-designed with local families and community members, so families and children can connect with neighbors, volunteer their time, and access resources and supports they need to thrive. These centers are administered by local community-based organizations. The new centers will be located in the hard-hit neighborhoods identified by the TRIE, based on their equity burdens and the impact of CoViD-19.

The three existing FECs are located in East New York, Brooklyn, Highbridge in the Bronx and Hunts Point / Longwood in the Bronx, and run by Good Shepherd…

Editorial

You should know that there was a time when becoming a Citizen of the United States and becoming an American was part of the American Dream.

Immigrants dreamed and looked forward to obtaining that beautiful blue passport that when presented identified them as a full-fledged American, and they felt that they had acquired part of that American Dream. Acquiring that American Passport gave those who possessed it prestige, liberty and the protections that came with being a citizen of the United States people of other nations could only wish for.

You should know that becoming an American Citizen came with pride and inalienable rights, to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. This came with the opportunities and the promise that anyone can prosper and acquire the happiness they seek with a good education and hard work. As American Citizens we are afforded the right to elect our leaders and representatives on the city, state, and federal levels. The beauty of America is that when you become an American Citizen all citizens become one people, the American People.  

It is important for you to know that it is painful and disheartening to hear when New York City Councilman Ydanis Rodriguez said that if American Citizens, do not like granting the undocumented immigrants the right to vote then “pack your bags and move to another city or to another country.” Wow! What nerve and audacity to say this to American Citizens who have fought for this country and have abide by our country’s laws and New York State Constitution.

Could you Imagine what we have come to! while some have waited in line, sacrificed everything, their lives, their families, their positions to obtain American Citizenship and others such as Puerto Ricans who shed their blood and sacrificed to obtained American Citizenship, Ydanis Rodriguez now tells us, that if we do not agree with him in violating the Constitution, which he swore to uphold, and allow non-citizens or the undocumented who entered this country without authorization, or documents, that we should leave our homes, City, State or even our Nation.

Councilman Ydanis Rodriguez, who happens to be a Dominican, knows full…

Mayor Bill de Blasio today announced New York City’s $65 million Medallion Relief Program (MRP), which could result in $500 million of debt forgiveness for thousands of drivers, has delivered $5.1 million in debt cancellation for the first 26 owners to fully restructure their loans. As of this week, 954 medallion owners have completed appointments with the TLC’s Owner/Driver Resource Center and are in various stages of renegotiations, a significant portion of which will be completed by the end of 2021. 

“Medallion owners have more than earned their place as an essential part of the City’s transportation network, and this visionary program will ensure that those in distress get the economic justice they need to support their families and eventually retire with deserved dignity,” said Mayor Bill de Blasio. “This program is the first of its kind anywhere and is really government at its best—helping our neighbors in crisis with innovative, inventive tools. The progress we’ve made thus far is really impressive.”

“The TLC is fully committed to the vitality and success of the Yellow Taxi sector,” said TLC Commissioner and Chair Aloysee Heredia Jarmoszuk. “The Medallion Relief Program is delivering $65 million in financial support, which is inarguably material, and we will not rest until we exhaust our reach to Owners who are facing insolvency due to Medallion-related debt.”

“Helping essential workers like taxi drivers is core to our mission and the pandemic has only exacerbated their need for help navigating their finances,” said Department of Consumer and Worker Protection Commissioner Peter A. Hatch. “We are proud to have already, in partnership with TLC, NYLAG and others, provided hundreds of driver/owners with legal assistance and free, confidential, one-on-one financial counseling that has helped lower and even eliminate their debt and we are eager…

Basketball ranks first among the highest-paying sports in the world. The NBA, considered the pinnacle of professional basketball, pays its players around $8 million per year on average. Besides the big bucks, playing professional basketball also opens up another world of opportunities, including serving as a coach, mentor and finding a niche in broadcasting.

Unfortunately, the odds of making it into professional basketball are significantly low compared to other types of sports like baseball. Although this does not make it unachievable, it means that you need to work extremely hard to impress coaches, scouts and recruiters.

Here is what you need to become a pro-NBA basketball player today:

Develop Elite-Level Explosiveness

Explosiveness is an athlete’s ability to move from zero to maximum speed within a short time. On the court, explosive strength is a fundamental attribute that separates good hoopers from the pros.

Why is explosiveness crucial in basketball? The thing with explosiveness is that it is manifested in most basic movements of the game, from jumping to cutting and sliding. Whether you are trying to create space against aggressive defenders, close distance or beat an opposing player off the dribble, explosiveness will give you a tremendous advantage over other players.

Multiple studies are suggesting that explosiveness is linked to muscular architecture and fiber composition. However, despite its genetic coefficient, explosive power can also be optimally developed and improved. As a trait mainly influenced…
