BronxNet today hosted second graders from CS 55: The Benjamin Franklin School for a tour of its Media + Technology studios for the premiere of a new Bronx-made children’s show, Eco Leaders.

The innovative environmental TV show was created by local puppetry artists affiliated with the artist economy development initiative Creatives Rebuild New York (CRNY). After the premier, students were surprised by the artists with news that they will star in the sixth episode of Eco Leaders, which will be filmed at their school this week as the first ever class to be featured on the show.

BronxNet leadership and Eco Leaders show creators including award-winning local animator and designer Alba Garcia; actor and puppetry artist Kervin Peralta; and award-winning actress and voiceover artist Paola Poucel gave Bronx second graders a first look at this new locally made and broadcasted program. Students also got a behind-the-scenes look at how the show was filmed in BronxNet’s state-of-the-art Media + Technology Studios.

The Eco Leaders TV series stars time traveling puppet characters who return to the Bronx from the year 2088 and seek to find out what happened to a destroyed earth. The show provides a space for children to engage with environmental exploration and climate solutions. 

“BronxNet is thrilled to partner with Creatives Rebuild New York and CS 55’s second grade class to showcase the incredible technology, local talent, and creativity that The Bronx has to offer to residents ages 5…

The Bronx County Conservative Party is thrilled to welcome Presidential Candidate and former President Donald Trump to the Bronx.

We fondly remember his campaign visit in 2016 and are eager for a repeat. Over the past year, the Bronx County Conservative Party has worked diligently to draw attention to Trump’s campaign.

Patrick McManus, Chairman of the Bronx County Conservative Party said, “I am overjoyed to have Mr. Trump in my county. We look forward to helping him secure the Bronx and win his election. This means a lot to the party, the people of the Bronx, and to me.”

The Bronx County Conservative Party was among the first to publicly endorse Trump’s candidacy. We have published multiple articles in support of Mr. Trump, issued an open invitation for his visit, and even formed a committee dedicated to bringing Trump to the Bronx.

This committee will have its next meeting on Sunday, May 19, 2024, in the Crotona Park East area of the Bronx. Those interested in participating are encouraged to contact us.

McManus stated that the goal is to be prepared for Trump’s visit and to work towards collecting voter registration cards. Those who participate might have a…

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…

New York City is in the middle of an economic boom, breaking record after record when it comes to creating jobs and opportunity. Just last week, we celebrated another record high for private-sector jobs in our city, with unemployment falling to 4.8 percent. There is also good news on the equity front, with Black unemployment at its lowest point in half a decade, having decreased by 26 percent since the start of 2022.

There is no question: our economy is strong. But we are committed to building on our success and expanding the scope of opportunity for all. That is why we are announcing our “Spring Jobs Sprint,” an all-out effort to connect New Yorkers with jobs.

We are not waiting around — we are bringing the jobs to the people.

Every month, we host hiring halls to bring both public- and private-sector job opportunities to neighborhoods across the five boroughs.

We have also recently launched “Run This Town,” a multi-media advertising campaign to engage diverse New Yorkers and help them apply for thousands of available city government jobs. The announcement follows the launch of “Jobs NYC,” a multi-pronged citywide effort to reduce barriers to economic opportunities and deliver workforce development services directly to communities that are experiencing high unemployment.

For our young people, especially young people of color, we are helping them discover their passion through our Pathways to an Inclusive Economy, Summer Rising, and Summer Youth Employment programs. And our Green Economy Action Plan is building an economy of the future with real pathways to family-sustaining careers.

Our goal? We want the “Spring Jobs Sprint” to lead to a “Summer of Opportunity,” with full employment…

The sports betting market has grown significantly in recent years. Read on to find out why more and more US citizens are betting on sports.
By / Publisher

In 2023, the sports betting industry increased in value by a staggering 44.5% from the previous year, with over $11 billion in revenue. This growth represents more generated revenue than every other source of income in the gaming industry, including iGaming, table games, and slots. Several factors have contributed to this sudden growth, including legalization, technology, and a cultural shift. Below, we will discuss why more US citizens are betting on sports and what the future looks like. 

State-Level Legalization

Betting on sports was taboo, and it was illegal in most states in the United States. However, a shift in the legal landscape has enabled people to enjoy betting on all types of games, including sports. The Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act, which occurred in 1992, meant that betting on sports was prohibited mainly in the United States. It was not until 2018 that the federal ban was removed, essentially making betting on in-person and online sports legal.

In 2020, 19 states made it legal to participate in online sports betting; by 2023, 33 states had joined in reversing the ban.

Some states, such as Tennessee and Kentucky, have partially lifted the ban. You can bet online in these states but cannot place sports bets in person, leading to a significant rise in digital betting in these states. It is likely that as time goes on, we will continue to see more states in the US lifting…
