Following legalization in states such as Florida and California, New York has smashed all betting records after registering $150 million worth of bets on sports during the first weekend that it was introduced legally to the public.

After its launch on January 08, 2022, betting industry experts are feeling incredibly excited about what lies ahead in the Big Apple. Many are expecting the $150 million figure to rise considerably further as sports betting completes its first full month, with some projections suggesting that New York could bring in $500 million during that time. Given the array of options available for sports bettors in the space, it certainly would not be too much of a surprise if New York did indeed reach that milestone.

Apps have been credited with New York’s opening weekend record in particular. There are now 5 sportsbooks in the Empire State, with FanDuel being the most popular so far. FanDuel is one of the easiest sportsbooks for betting fans to get to grips with and offers new bettors a chance to back their favorite sports team. Many people who want to get involved in betting seem put off by the possibility of getting started with a sports betting app, but it seems very easy to bet with FanDuel, even for those new to sports gambling.

Betting apps provide a range of benefits

You should know that these were the words shouted out loud by Winston Glynn, an illegal alien, accused of murdering 19-year-old Kristal Byron-Nieves during an armed robbery in a Burger King in New York City, according to news reports.

As you may know, Kristal Byron-Nieves was working the late shift (01:00 a.m.) at the Burger King in Manhattan, on Sunday January 09, 2022, when Winston Glynn, allegedly came in to rob the place at gun point. Upon doing so he shot Ms. Nieves, killing her and ending her young life.

You should also know that thanks to the great, intense hunt for her killer by the NYPD, in less than one week the perpetrator was captured and identified as Winston Glynn. He was immediately taken into custody and arrested. As he was being taken out of the 25th Precinct in Manhattan he shouted “America is gonna burn!” among yelling other obscenities to the onlookers.

It is important for you to know that Winston Glynn is in this country illegally, an “undocumented” resident in this country. But what makes this case much more tragic is that this young girl’s life could have been saved given that he has a past criminal record. According to news reports he has been previously charged with the following crimes:

  1. In 2017 he was arrested and charged with criminal mischief.
  2. In 2018 he was arrested and charged with menacing.
  3. In December 2020 he was arrested for criminal possession of a weapon and was set free.
  4. In November 2021 he was residing in a hotel and got into a violent dispute and threatened a person with a screwdriver. He was given a ticket for a desk appearance and with a simple slap on the wrist they let him go free.
  5. And tragically, now, in January 2022, he is arrested and charged with armed robbery and murder.

As you can see, my dear reader, we must ask ourselves why is it that an illegal alien, an individual who should not have been in this country to begin with, who has been arrested and continues to commit crimes is allowed to freely walk the…

The New York City Housing Authority announced today 22 provisional workers were terminated or returned to their former civil service titles after an investigation showed they abused overtime. This investigation is ongoing.

NYCHA will not tolerate overtime abuse. We will continue to investigate these employees and others and will take appropriate action – both legal and criminal – against any employee who abuses overtime or commits any other type of overtime malfeasance.

An investigation by NYCHA’s Quality Assurance Department, one of three new departments established by the 2019 HUD Agreement, found that these employees consistently swiped out at the end of their overtime window while being underutilized during their regular work hours.

“This investigation shows the progress NYCHA is making toward transparency and compliance,” said NYCHA Chair and CEO Greg Russ. “This is proof positive that the 2019 HUD Agreement is working, and we have the departments in place to ensure best practices at the Authority.”

“Overtime is necessary for staff to be available to respond to residents’ needs and improve productivity, and those employees who abuse this tool undermine the effectiveness of the Authority,” said Jay Flaherty, NYCHA Vice President of Quality and Cost Control. “NYCHA is committed to investigating all malfeasance and will take appropriate disciplinary measures as needed.”

An overtime policy, which is not unique to NYCHA, is necessary to address the work dictated by the HUD Agreement, including the need for increased staffing during the heating season, as well as addressing immediate and long-term needs of NYCHA residents, especially in cases of weekend emergencies or federally recognized holidays.

NYCHA is obligated to credit overtime and pay overtime in accordance with the terms and conditions of the collective bargaining…

Having been welcomed back into the fold, following a self-enforced absence from the action with the Brooklyn Nets, one would have hoped that Kyrie Irving would have looked to avoid unnecessary attention, but that does not appear to be the case.

Irving, who has resisted calls to get vaccinated against the CoViD-19 virus, is banned from playing home games with the Nets, as well as other locations that forbid him from doing so, but has played games on the road after being left out for the first few months of the season.

Although Steve Nash has been without Irving, this has not affected the Nets progress and a cursory look at the sidelines odds, which compares the overall sports betting market, shows that Brooklyn remains the favorites for the NBA title at (+275), this despite the fact that the Barclays Center side has never won the Championship before.

The Nets sit top of the Eastern Conference with a promising 29-16 record, with Kevin Durant and James Harden pulling the strings for Nash’s side. Irving’s latest involvement came during their loss to the Cleveland Cavaliers (114-107) when he was harangued by the home support.

Irving, who spent 6 years with the Cavaliers (and helped them to an NBA title in 2016), did not take the abuse too well and responded:

“Got y’all a championship, and motherf***ers still ungrateful,”
