Mario D’Agostino, who passed away June 14, 2020, was a true leader in his community in the Bronx and left his mark on the neighborhood and everyone, who had the pleasure of knowing him.
Mario was an honorable man, who changed people’s lives with his beautiful mind, strong work ethic, positive outlook on life and investing in his favorite part of New York City, the Bronx.
You should know that in one of his first public appearances, after having resigned as Governor for New York State, Andrew Cuomo will be visiting the South Bronx. His visit to the Bronx is to meet with Members of “The New York Hispanic Clergy Organization”, which I preside over.
As you know, last summer Governor Cuomo resigned, when he was accused and practically abandoned by all his friends, politicians, and community groups, whom he had helped in the past. These so-called friends, and groups that were all too happy to kiss his ring, joined the “cancel culture” environment, that plaques us all, without due process, they washed their hands with a dismissive attitude, sending the message “Crucify him, crucify him”.
Several courts and judges have dismissed the allegations of “sexual harassment” against Governor Cuomo. With this episode behind him, Governor Cuomo has begun to visit and make public appearances by visiting different faith-based organizations and community groups.
It is very important for you to know that Governor Cuomo’s first public visit was to “God’s Battalion of Prayer Temple” in East Flatbush, Brooklyn on Sunday March 06, 2022. His next planned visit is to the “New York Hispanic Clergy Organization” in the South Bronx.
You should also know that in a recent poll, Governor Cuomo, without being a candidate nor having announced his political aspirations, has polled with just four (4) points behind Governor Kathy Hochul.
As you know, Governor Hochul was a friend and she was handpicked by Cuomo to be his Lieutenant Governor. However, she was among one of the first to throw him under the bus, in the midst of the allegations, launched against him.
I imagine that those four (4) points will evaporate very soon and Governor Hochul will have to consider asking Governor Cuomo for his support, if she wishes to be officially elected by the people to the governorship.
As President of the “New York Hispanic Clergy Organization”, I am looking forward to hosting Governor Cuomo on Thursday, March 17, 2022. We welcome him to the South…

Debt relief programs are packages designed by third-party debt settlement companies to help consumers stuck in expensive debt restructure their financial plans. In its simplest form, a debt relief program tries to make debt affordable for these consumers by negotiating with the creditor for lesser pay than what they owe as payment in full.
This article will discuss everything you need to know about debt relief programs.
How does Debt Relief Work?
Before committing to a debt relief program, it is essential to understand your options and their consequences. There are two ways to approach debt relief.
The first is by hiring a debt relief company that acts as the middleman between you and the creditor. The company assigns you a financial advisor who explains the workable options and then negotiates with the creditor on your behalf for lesser pay. This option is great if you want a faster way to get out of debt. However, experts warn that debt relief programs can be more expensive since the companies are more profit-driven.
Typically, the debt settlement company expects to earn 15% to 25% of what you owe and a service charge which can be hefty. When you enroll in a debt repayment plan, you may be required to stop making payments directly to the creditor. Instead, the counselor may advise you to channel monthly payments into their account until the amount is enough to give your creditor a settlement offer. On the other hand, the debt relief company handles the negotiations and waits for their cut.
Alternatively, you can take the DIY approach, which involves asking the…

Horse racing has always attracted the public’s attention for its class and emotion. However, the huge fortunes they are worth. Surprisingly, some racehorses are worth more than some soccer stars and this has been the reality for a long time now.
Racehorses Worth Great Value
Below, we list some of the horses that are worth great value:
In 2001, Zinedine Zidane took part in what was then the most expensive transaction in soccer. The Frenchman moved from Juventus to Real Madrid for a whopping €76 million. The deal remained the most valuable in soccer for many years. However, it was not the most expensive deal in sports that year.
Kentucky Derby winner Fusaichi Pegasus dimmed the Frenchman’s transfer brilliance. Also, in 2000, the thoroughbred changed owners for $70 million. In five years of competition, Pegasus earned its former owner $2 million dollars.
Soon, his purchase was made in the expectation that the horse would give rise to an offspring of victorious horses in equestrianism. Therefore, it would increase its stud fee, which is the money paid by mare owners so that their horses can breed with the stallions.
However, after his successful equestrian career, the stallion lost its breeding rate value over the years. Its fee, which was $150,000 when it was traded, has dropped to just $7,500, according to the Racing Post.
