On Wednesday, August 03, 2022, New York Lieutenant Governor Antonio Delgado along with his wife, Lacey, and twin 8-year old sons, visited Rising Ground’s Family Resource Center in the Soundview section of the Bronx, to take part in an art therapy class for children aged 3-6.
The program, administered by Rising Ground’s ParentChild+ program, helps empowers parents of kids ages 18 months to 4 years to be their children’s first and most important teacher by delivering resources like books and educational toys to the homes of low-income parents. ParentChild+ helps make play a learning experience to close the achievement gap.
Graduates of the program enter kindergarten with skills an average of 10 months above their age, are 50% better prepared for elementary school than low-income children who do not attend the program, are less likely to need special education or remedial services, less likely to repeat a grade, more likely to graduate from high school, and have a higher lifelong income of $600,000 to $1 million more than their peers who did not participate in the program.

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.
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…

Getting your financial house in order can feel overwhelming. Even when you know the things you need to do (stay out of debt and save money), but how do you do them? How do you prioritize? If you are the type of person who tends to get paralyzed by these choices, then rather than trying to optimize how you organize your finances, choose any one or more of the things below to work on.
Pay Off Debt
If you are not in debt, stay out of it, except for buying a home and getting an education. If you’re in debt, you need to work on paying it off. Doing so aggressively, if possible, is generally best, but you can also work on paying off debt while you aim for other financial goals. First, ensure your payments are high enough to account for interest rates.
There are several different facets to investing. Some might not specifically think of the retirement account they have through their employer as investing, even though that is precisely what it is. Retirement funds can be a great way to support with tax advantages, and you can use a self-directed IRA to invest in alternative assets. These are excellent choices for a retirement account because the real estate investment can increase in value in the long run with these accounts generally existing. You can review online how savvy investors can get the most out of real estate investments using a self-directed IRA.

Winning at football betting isn't a walk in the park but is achievable. Here are some of the best NFL betting tips on the internet to help you win big.By Jonas Bronck / Publisher
With a market capitalization of over $11 billion and a total of 272 games played every season, the NFL is considered the biggest and most viewed sport in the United States. The sport’s growth has been directly linked to the competitive nature of the league and its amazing fans, who never stopped cheering for their favorite teams.
Taking advantage of fans’ love and the competitive nature of the sport, bookmakers are now setting odds on games to give fans a chance to win something as they enjoy the game. Ultimately, NFL odds are heavily influenced by the strength, injury reports, and the history of the two teams playing.
As a smart punter looking to make some cash betting on the NFL, here are some tips you must keep in mind.
1. Do Not Bet With Your Heart, But Your Head
This is one piece of advice that should be ringing in the heads of every bettor when placing a bet on a game, especially in the NFL. It will be a bit weird as a bettor in the NFL not to have a favorite team. Having a team you support and love is a good thing, but you shouldn’t let your love influence how you place your bets.
Most gamblers today are unsuccessful because their love for their teams means they are oblivious to their flaws, leading them to make the wrong wagers…
