Memorial Day, observed on the last Monday of May, is a day of profound significance in the United States. It stands as a solemn reminder of the sacrifices made by the men and women who have given their lives in service to the nation. As we gather with family and friends, partake in barbecues, and enjoy the unofficial start of summer, it is crucial to remember the true essence of this day: honoring our fallen heroes.

The origins of Memorial Day trace back to the aftermath of the Civil War, a conflict that took a devastating toll on the American population. Initially known as Decoration Day, it was a time set aside for citizens to decorate the graves of the war dead with flowers, paying tribute to their courage and dedication. Over the years, Memorial Day evolved to encompass all American military personnel who have died in all wars, becoming a national day of remembrance.

The solemnity of Memorial Day is reflected in the myriad of traditions observed across the country. From the laying of wreaths at cemeteries to the playing of “Taps,” these acts of remembrance foster a collective sense of gratitude and reflection. The National Moment of Remembrance, observed at 3:00 p.m. local time, invites Americans to pause for a minute of silence, uniting the nation in a shared gesture of respect for those who have given the ultimate sacrifice.

Memorial Day also offers a moment to recognize the ongoing commitment…

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…

In the past decade, New York has seen wholesale changes to its gambling landscape. Despite this, online casinos and other iGaming activities remain prohibited in the state. Recently, Senator Joseph Addabbo, Chairman of the Senate’s Committee on Racing, Gaming and Wagering stated that the legalization of online casinos is inevitable, doubling down on his commitment to changing policy surrounding iGaming’s legal status. So, is the Senator right or is there a long way to go before we see any jackpot wins on online platforms in New York?

The current gambling landscape in New York

It is important to remember that before 2013, gambling regulations in New York were some of the strictest in the United States. Nearly all gambling activities were prohibited with the exception of tribal casinos, charitable raffles and certain types of horserace wagers. In 2013, constitutional changes via public vote allowed the creation of seven new commercial casinos in the state, representing the pivot point for New York’s gambling legislation. Since then, a multitude of new bills have been passed, loosening regulations on activities such as online sports betting and mobile betting. While the state government has understood the need to legitimize gambling practices, the status of online casino platforms remains illegal. There are several indications that suggest legalization of these casinos is likely the next step.

Consumer demand

Despite the legal status of online casinos within the state, there remains a huge community of New Yorkers who are active participants in online gaming. Some players use offshore sites while many travel to neighboring states where they can access legal online casinos through sites like Casino.org and other review sites. Players are looking for high-quality gameplay, the fastest payout online…

When the New York Knicks signed Jalen Brunson to a four-year, $104 million contract in the summer of 2022, most NBA fans did not think he would develop into one of the best Knicks players of all time. Yet, less than two years later, Brunson has already blown whatever expectations fans had for him when he joined the Knicks out of the water. He has single-handedly turned the Knicks into one of the best teams in the NBA’s Eastern Conference and has them on the verge of making a deep run in the 2024 NBA Playoffs.

It is still too early to tell whether or not Brunson will go down as one of the all-time great Knicks. But we are having fun keeping up with what he is doing in the Big Apple right now, and after reading through this Overtime Heroics’ Betfred review and finding odds for the New York Knicks games, you might want to get in on the action by placing wagers on Brunson and his teammates during the postseason. He is showing that he has the potential to join a list of very special players who have suited up in royal blue and orange.

When younger NBA fans think about the best Knicks players ever, Carmelo Anthony is no doubt one of the first names that comes to mind. He spent seven seasons playing in Madison Square Garden, averaging 24.7 points, 7.0 rebounds, and 3.2 assists during that stretch.
