New York City Mayor Eric Adams today announced that his first paycheck — which arrives tomorrow — will be automatically converted into cryptocurrency, as previously promised. The salary will be converted to Ethereum and Bitcoin.

“New York is the center of the world, and we want it to be the center of cryptocurrency and other financial innovations,” said Mayor Adams. “Being on the forefront of such innovation will help us create jobs, improve our economy, and continue to be a magnet for talent from all over the globe.”

“From being the primary means by which we close both the digital and financial divide, technology continues to be the great equalizer, said New York City Chief Technology Officer Matt Fraser. “This step taken by the mayor provides a leading example of how we can empower people through tech with a more diverse set of options to manage their finances.”

Before funds are made available, Mayor Adams’ first paycheck will automatically be converted into cryptocurrency via Coinbase, a secure online platform for buying, selling, transferring, and storing digital currency.

Last November, Mayor Adams announced he would accept his first three paychecks in cryptocurrency. Due to U.S. Department of Labor regulations, New York City cannot pay employees in cryptocurrency. By using a cryptocurrency exchange, anyone paid in U.S. dollars can have funds converted into cryptocurrency before funds are deposited into their account.

Cryptocurrencies are at the forefront of Web3innovations and…

One of the best strategies to ensure a healthy birth is to have a good pregnancy. Getting prenatal treatment early and on a regular basis increases the odds of a safe pregnancy. With a pre-pregnancy visit to a health care practitioner, this care can begin even before conception.

Pre-Pregnancy Care

A pre-pregnancy checkup can assist women in taking steps toward a healthy pregnancy even before they become pregnant.

Before becoming pregnant, women can help to promote a healthy pregnancy and birth of a healthy baby by doing the following steps:

  1. Make a plan for how they will reproduce.
  2. Increase their folic acid (a B vitamin) intake to at least 400 micrograms per day.
  3. Make sure they are up to date on their immunizations.
  4. Maintain diabetes and other medical conditions under control.
  5. Do not smoke, drink alcohol, or take drugs.
  6. Achieve a healthy body weight.
  7. Find out about their family’s medical history as well as their partner’s.
  8. Seek help if you are suffering from depression, anxiety, or other mental illnesses.

Street Renaming Petition To Honor Mario D’Agostino
The Bronx Daily | Bronx.com

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.

Editorial

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 leadership of the America First Policy Institute (AFPI) provided the following reactions and insight into the state of America one year into the Biden Administration:

“President Biden’s economic policies have reversed the V-shaped recovery of the Trump Administration. And yet, even today, the Biden Administration continues to disincentivize work and fails to address our Nation’s crippling supply chain. Due to record inflation levels, those who are fortunate enough to have a job are seeing the value of their hard-earned paychecks diminish. To top it off, President Biden has attempted to force millions of Americans to choose between their livelihoods and their medical privacy through tyrannical vaccine mandates. President Biden had the opportunity to take advantage of the roaring economy that the Trump Administration gave him. Instead, he has done everything in his power to ruin it.”
Linda McMahon, Chair of AFPI’s Board of Directors and Chair, Center for the American Worker

“President Biden’s radical, left-wing, big government socialist policy agenda has collapsed, and his presidency is unravelling. His polls have plunged as the American people have lost confidence in his executive ability and his honestly. Mr. Biden has been selling a product that voters do not want to buy. Poll after poll shows that voters are worried about inflation, CoViD, crime, groceries on the shelves, affordable gasoline and home heating energy, parenting in the schools, and illegal immigration. Biden has been on the wrong side of every one of these issues. Now he’s pushing a highly partisan and racially divisive national election takeover bill that has no support. But the good news is the GOP cavalry is coming. Save America, kill the bill.”
Larry Kudlow, AFPI’s Vice Chair of the Board and Chair, Center for American Prosperity

“In his…

The Bronx Daily | Bronx.com

While New York is loaded with historic major league sports teams, the Bronx boasts two: the most successful and the newest of the bunch. The New York Yankees are one of the most instantly recognizable sports brands in the world – despite the lack of baseball outside of North America and Japan – with more titles than the rest of New York’s teams combined. New York City FC is the new kid in the Bronx, but already has a championship to their name.

The year of 2021 proved to be one of immensely differing fortunes for the Yankees and City FC. Still, each new season brings about a renewed sense of hope among the fans. Even though the 2022 campaigns are still some way out for the MLB and MLS, it’s fair to say that both Bronx teams have the opportunity to be in contention for major honors.

New York Yankees can improve greatly in 2022

It was not a great season for the New York Yankees, with the final record of 92-70 being flattering. Eight games back of the AL East leaders (the Tampa Bay Rays), a superb win-streak through the summer enabled the Yankees to squeak into a wild card place. They went to the postseason as one of three representatives from their stacked division. Of course, the chance was not taken, bowing out to the Boston Red…
