I have a vivid memory as a child while living in Brooklyn, New York in the 1970’s. I am in the car with my family and we’re driving along the Belt Parkway when suddenly the vehicle fills up with a familiar stench that tells me we have reached Jamaica Bay.
I hold my breath and look out the window. I see a mountain of raw garbage – a dump 100-feet-high – with tiny bull dozers plowing through it. Hungry seagulls circle the top while contaminated soil falls into the bay.
Today, the dump and pungent smell are gone, but not the negative effects it has had on the bay. The estuary is slowly improving with work being performed by my agency, the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, New York District.
The Army Corps with partnering agencies is using funds from the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law to revitalize marsh islands in the bay. It is part of a larger project to restore the degrading estuary in New York and New Jersey.
This project fulfills some of the goals of the law that was implemented this past spring by the U.S. Congress and signed into law by President Biden. The Army Corps received funding that will be applied to over 500 projects throughout the United States.
“The Army will work with community partners to leverage these historic civil works funds for investments that strengthen national supply chains through our commercial…

Restoring NY-NJ Estuary Will Create Breathtaking Views And More Bipartisan Infrastructure Law FundingBy JoAnne Castagna, Ed.D.
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…

Starting your business is an exciting opportunity for you. It is a time for you to use your skills and knowledge to grow your wealth. No matter what type of business you are in or planning to start, it’s critical to form your business with a legal structure that offers benefits to your company. Creating a Limited Liability Company (LLC) is often a desirable first step. That process comes with costs, but there are some ways you may be able to reduce your costs, especially when forming an LLC in New York, where costs can be high, and business opportunities are often many.
LLCs in New York have a variety of fees associated with the creation and management of them. Some of these costs are unavoidable. For example, the state filing fee has to be paid, and there’s no way to avoid doing so if you want to maintain your LLC in New York. Other fees can be avoided or reduced with a few simple steps. Here is how to do that.
Use a Formation Service Instead of an Attorney
Hiring an attorney to establish your LLC in New York is an option, but it tends to come with higher-than-expected costs. Hiring an attorney offers some benefits, including very specific legal support for you and your business. If you have a complex business structure or you are not sure about liabilities in a challenging or complex field, working with an attorney ensures you get the best insight.
However, most people starting an LLC in New York do not need to use an attorney. Most often, lawyers are far more expensive than what you will pay for using an online formation service….

The biggest event in soccer begins this week, as 32 national teams compete for the 2022 FIFA World Cup in Qatar. This promises to be a spectacular tournament, one that will feature some of the biggest names in the sport itself, ready to demonstrate their stellar talents and abilities in the quest for ultimate success.
The World Cup Golden Boot
While the iconic World Cup trophy itself is the biggest prize, it is not the only award on offer. There are two other prestigious awards available, one being the Golden Ball awarded to the player voted as the best performer, while the other is the Golden Boot presented to the top goalscorer. The latter always generates the most interest and excitement, given that after all, the best path to winning matches and the tournament itself is by scoring lots of goals.
SBO has published a comprehensive guide covering World Cup top goalscorer betting, the market now offered by many of the leading international sportsbooks, as bettors aim to predict which attacking players will claim the coveted Golden Boot award. Highlighting the most competitive odds available, this resource is packed with insightful information, including detailed reviews for online betting sites where the market is available.
The granting of a top scorer award was first conceived at the 1982 World Cup, originally called the Golden Shoe, when it was first presented as an official award by FIFA. Since…
