On the heels of the death of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s most outspoken critic Alexei Navalny, U.S. Senator Charles Schumer said an urgent alarm bell now rings that House Speaker Johnson and Republicans must heed as it relates to the bipartisan National Security Supplemental Bill he led to wide bipartisan passage last week. Schumer said that Navalny’s death now makes it even more urgent for House Speaker Johnson to pass the National Security Supplemental. Schumer urged new action as it relates to national security interests and discussed just what exactly is at stake. He explained that this bipartisan bill sits at the feet of Johnson, and Putin is watching. The Senator said that some of America’s biggest national security challenges depend on the House passing the Senate’s bipartisan security package ASAP.

“Last week, the Senate overwhelmingly passed the national security supplemental, and I urged the House and Speaker Johnson to act—but now—with the death of Russian President Vladimir Putin’s political foe, Alexei Navalny, an urgent alarm bell now rings,” said U.S. Senator Charles Schumer. “Navalny’s tragic death now makes it even more urgent for House Speaker Johnson to pass the National Security Supplemental. This bipartisan bill currently sits at the feet of Speaker Johnson, and Putin is watching. We need to approve the investments that ensure our nation’s security, ensure the security of our partners, and prevent our adversaries from gaining an edge over us.”

“The death of Russia’s brave opposition leader Navalny shows there are enormously high stakes…

In recent weeks, Norman “Sobie” McGill has found himself immersed in a whirlwind of activity. Following Assemblywoman Latoya Joyner’s resignation on January 4, 2024, a special election was promptly initiated. However, Governor Kathy Hochul’s failure to publicize the election through the appropriate channels added an element of urgency. Once Hochul issued a proclamation on January 12, 2024, there was a short window to select a new candidate, followed by a brief period for the election itself ending on February 13, 2024. 

Fortunately, the Bronx Republican Party and the Bronx County Conservative Party were prepared, swiftly mobilizing to identify, interview, and endorse a candidate. While the Democrats encountered challenges, cycling through two candidates due to questionable circumstances, the Republicans and Conservatives managed to navigate the process despite the tight timeframe. 

Amid McGill’s packed schedule, I seized a few moments to converse with him amidst his engagements with politicians, petitioners, and constituents. His workspace exuded an air of seasoned political prowess, with McGill commanding his office and staff efficiently amidst a backdrop of awards and commendations from elected officials.

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 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…

Before the pandemic, NFTs boomed on the crypto market and have since been adopted by numerous companies to appeal to the demand. The fashion industry took advantage of this new engaging strategy and introduced it within the sector through Augmented reality clothing, Metaverse fashion shows and virtual stores. Brands like Dolce & Gabbana, Gucci and Burberry were the most open to using NFTs for their customers, and it showed how versatile NFTs are. 

But influencing an entire market is a long road because handling NFTs requires hiring someone specialized in blockchain technology, network connection and cryptocurrency transactions. Of course, those who want to buy their favorite clothing under an NFT form must check where to buy Ethereum because most of these online environments are built on the Ethereum blockchain. Hence, they mainly accept Ether payments, but some have expanded to Bitcoin and even Dogecoin tokens.

Regardless, it is safe to say that NFTs bring a total change in the business setting, so we must explore it thoroughly to seek innovation. Here’s how.

NFTs in art and luxury brands

Of course, NFTs, being unique tokens and appreciated for their value due to demand and scarcity, are linked to luxury brands and artistic assets because they share similar values. That’s why NFTs are used mainly by artists and creators to make an income from their creativity and market offers. If you have not heard about it yet, know that some artistic NFTs are being sold for millions of dollars. For example, the “Everydays: The First 5,000 Days” NFT collection was sold at an auction for $69.4 million, and people are still not over the most expensive NFT.

But there is an entire…

The 17-time NBA champions are gearing up to host the Brooklyn Nets in the TD Garden on the 14th of February. The Celtics are comfortably sitting on top of the Eastern Conference in the 2023-24 NBA season. The Nets, however, are in the 11th place in the conference and need help to make it to the top ten. The following Wednesday fixture will be an exciting watch for basketball fans as two historic NBA sides collide in a much-anticipated clash.

The Boston Celtics have garnered 39 victories this season and suffered defeat 12 times. They have accumulated a Pct of .765 this season. Meanwhile, the Nets have only managed to win 20 times while suffering 30 losses. On paper, the odds are heavily stacked against the Nets; however, an upset victory from the Brooklyn Nets cannot be discarded.

We can observe a deep contrast between their home and away records. The Celtics have a home record of 24-3 and an away record of 15-9. The Brooklyn Nets have a home record of 12-15 and a road record of 8-15. The Celtics are currently on a two-game winning streak, while the Nets are on a 2 game losing streak.

Regarding head-to-head records, the Boston Celtics have a clear advantage over the Nets. During their last 5 meetings, the Celtics have won 4 times. The previous two contests were also dominated and defeated by the Celtics. The Brooklyn Nets’ final victory against the mighty…
