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 no elected official has publicly criticized and gone against Governor Andrew Cuomo more than I have.

The deaths of more than 13,000 elderly persons in nursing homes in New York State is travesty. The posture, taken by Governor Andrew Cuomo, is an ugly representation of the his leadership, tarnishing his past accomplishments.

My gripes and disagreements with the governor are due to my positions as a Conservative Democrat and Pentecostal minister. My religious conservative beliefs compel me to go against the governors stand on certain issues, that in my purview, are morally wrong and damaging.

I would like to make it clear that my position against Governor Andrew Cuomo have been solely based on my deeply rooted Christian Conservative values. Other than that, if I were a liberal socialist Democrat, I would confidently say that no one has done more to move forward the progressive socialist agenda than Gov. Cuomo. However, I acknowledge, that despite his leftists views, he has done some humanitarian and good will for those in need. For example:

  1. For Puerto Rico: During the devastation caused by Hurricane Maria. The governor went above and beyond the call of duty to help my beautiful island.
  2. For the gay & lesbian community: Have Gov. Cuomo to thank, when he fought and twisted many arms to ensure that same-sex marriage became legal in New York State. My opposition to gay marriage was the main cause of my contention with the governor.
  3. For the Bronx County: Governor Cuomo assisted the Bronx when he intervened and allocated monies to The Hunts Point Market, the Bruckner Sheridan Expressway, Orchard Beach, the building of four Metro North Train Stations, (which he jested that he would name one of them Ruben Diaz station), the allocation of much needed funds for Bronx affordable housing, and a piece of land to create The Junior camp for Bronx youths, after the senseless killing of Junior Guzman.
  4. For union workers: Gov. Cuomo was influential when he got involved in rebuilding and repair of the state’s infrastructure. The construction and repair of new and old bridges, repaving…

New York Attorney General Letitia James today continued her efforts to protect investors from fraudulent and deceptive virtual or “crypto” currency trading platforms by requiring Bitfinex and Tether to end all trading activity with New Yorkers.

Millions around the country and the world today use virtual currencies as decentralized digital currencies — unlike real, regulated government currencies, including the U.S. dollar — to buy goods and services, often times anonymously, through secure online transactions.

Stablecoins, specifically, are virtual currencies that are always supposed to have the same real-dollar value. In the case of Tether, the company represented that each of its stablecoins were backed one-to-one by U.S. dollars in reserve.

However, an investigation by the Office of the Attorney General (OAG) found that iFinex — the operator of Bitfinex — and Tether made false statements about the backing of the “tether” stablecoin, and about the movement of hundreds of millions of dollars between the two companies to cover up the truth about massive losses by Bitfinex.

An agreement with iFinex, Tether, and their related entities will require them to cease any further trading activity with New Yorkers, as well as force the companies to pay $18.5 million in penalties, in addition to requiring a number of steps to increase transparency.

“Bitfinex and Tether recklessly and unlawfully covered-up massive financial losses to keep their scheme going and protect their bottom lines,” said Attorney General James. “Tether’s claims that its virtual currency was fully backed by U.S. dollars at all times was a lie. These companies obscured the true risk investors faced and were operated by unlicensed and unregulated individuals and entities dealing in the darkest corners of the financial system. This resolution makes clear that those trading virtual currencies in New York state who think they can avoid our laws cannot and will not. Last week, we sued to shut down Coinseed for its fraudulent conduct. This week, we are taking action to end…

He calls himself TBE – The Best Ever – and many boxing fans agree Floyd Mayweather, Jr. is one of the finest athletes ever to grace the noble art, but the American’s wait to be inducted into the International Boxing Hall of Fame rumbles on.

Mayweather was scheduled to finally take his place alongside the sport’s elite at a ceremony in New York this year but plans were shelved due to coronavirus restrictions. It is the second time Floyd has missed out due to CoViD-19 but a new date of June 09–12, 2022 has been set with Canastota providing the backdrop.

Pretty Boy could return to the ring

Despite being 44 years old and retired since beating Ireland’s UFC star Conor McGregor approaching three years ago, leading bookmakers across the world offer odds on Pretty Boy to return to action. Rumours suggest Floyd could record a 51st professional bout before becoming a Hall of Famer and you can check out the best American betting sites for free at Online Sports Betting.

Mayweather famously defeated Andre Berto on points to win the WBC and WBA world titles back in September 2015 and many thought they had seen the last of the Michigan born fighter. He shocked the sport two years later, however, returning to battle McGregor in Las Vegas, stopping Notorious in round 10 of a bout scheduled…
