ART & CREAKY BONES is a memorable read that could lead to a longer and healthier life. It is a stimulating account of how a creative activity can turn the senior years into a time of joy and awakening. It begins with the story of one amazing artist who is enjoying her first success in the Whitney Museum, at 102 years old.

This book is an enriching discovery of how and why painting or singing or any creative adventure can help keep old bodies and brains healthier, longer. There is new evidence that people actually become more innovative as they age, which makes it possible for the years after 50 to become prolific and exciting.

Besides investigating scientific studies about what happens as we age, the author gives compelling examples of old masters who were at their pinnacle in their senior years. In so many ways this book is an inspiration to help seniors live better, happier lives.

She also recounts some personal experiences as a visual artist who moved from Detroit to Milanin 1972 where her artworks thrived. Her works are now exhibited and collected by museums around the world. The colorful images of her work illustrating this book, are an incentive to pick up a paint brush or to invent or create something that gives fulfillment.

Many people remember this…

Baseball Nov 1, 2019

Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. is calling on Nike, Major League baseball and the New York Yankees to reverse a potentially ruinous decision that prevents merchants surrounding Yankee Stadium from selling official Yankee merchandise.

A new merchandising agreement between Major League Baseball and Nike set to go into effect in 2020 will prevent most official league merchandise—including New York Yankees merchandise—from being sold at locations that are not considered “premium distribution points” by Nike.

This decision means that eight family-owned Bronx businesses—Ballpark Sports, D & J Variety, Home Plate, Pinstripe Collectibles, Sammy’s, S & A Sports, Stadium Souvenirs and Stan’s Sports World—will no longer be able to sell official Yankees merchandise. Since Yankees merchandise represents between 70 and 80 percent of each store’s total business, these merchants would be forced to close. These businesses employ 100 people and represent millions of dollars in economic activity each year.

“If these eight businesses can no longer sell official Yankees merchandise they will be forced to close, and the area…

Editorial

You should know that this Thursday, October 24th, 2019 at 05:00 p.m., in the New York City Council Chamber, I will be celebrating Taiwanese Heritage Day with more than 200 leaders and members of New York’s Taiwanese community and the community at large.

It is important for you to know that this is not the first time I am hosting an event to celebrate the rich culture and diversity of one of New York’s immigrant communities.

When I was in the New York State Senate, the first thing I did was to organize and sponsor the very first Dominican Heritage Day, Garifuna Heritage Day, Bangladeshi Heritage Day, and Taiwanese Heritage Day in the New York State Senate.

My dear reader, you should know that no other Senator had taken this initiative before I arrived in the Senate Chamber to welcome immigrant communities such as New York’s Dominican, Garifuna, Bangladeshi and Taiwanese communities to address the New York State Senate in their own languages, and to celebrate their cultures.

You should also know that I held these very special events annually.

Ladies and gentlemen, I am truly honored and blessed to have been able to open the Senate chamber doors to welcome these immigrant communities into the halls of government.

As I did last year in the New York City Council Chambers, my fellow Council Members and I look forward to welcoming members of New York’s Taiwanese community again this coming Thursday. The delegation will include Ambassador Lily L. W. Hsu from the Taipei Economic and Cultural Office in New York and Mr. Justin Yu, Chair of the Chinese Chamber of Commerce of New York to celebrate Taiwan’s culture with me at City Hall.

I am Councilmember Rev. Rubén Díaz, Sr. and this is what you should know.

Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. has issued a new report outlining an action plan for criminal justice reform and economic empowerment following the legalization of recreational marijuana in New York State.

The report, titled “Marijuana Justice in New York: The Path to Reform,” provides six recommendations that should coincide with the likely legalization of recreational marijuana in New York, which could happen as early as the upcoming 2020 legislative session in Albany.

The full report can be read here.

“It is important that when recreational marijuana is legalized in New York State we do that in the right way,” said Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz, Jr. “Just legalizing marijuana and not addressing the entire world of ramifications that would come isn’t finishing the job. I am relieved that there is now time to map out a course of action about how to address surrounding issues that will arise through the legalization of recreational marijuana, and I look forward to being a part of that conversation.”

Recommendations discussed in the report include the automatic expungement of criminal records for previous marijuana offenders, reinvesting new tax revenues generated by marijuana legalization back into affected communities and ending the separation of children from families by the City’s Administration for Children’s Services based on an investigation begun following a positive test for marijuana use, among others.

People enjoy playing sports because of competition and fun. Like outdoor sports, video games, cosmic spins is also becoming very popular among the youth owing to its excellent collection of games. Here are some predictions of what we will be playing and watching in 2020.

China Will Take Gold At Rugby In the 2020 Olympics

People in China are very interested in the game of rugby. It has been reported that 44 million people in China watched sevens at the Rio Olympics. Chinese players have already proved their mastery of unlikely Olympic sports using the militaristic pursuit of perfection. The competitive experience will be critical, so we expect an ordinary showing on their debut, followed by a period of ferocious improvement that leads to the Olympic title in 2020.

Football’s Old Guard Will Resist the Use of Technology

For years, FIFA has resisted the use of technology and this will not change. Not in March, when it gathers again to consider again the introduction of goal-line technology, nor when the suits assemble in South Africa this summer. For traditionalists, the introduction of technology breaks the line between football of the present and football in the past. By 2020, when other sports are umpired by robots and wrong decisions are a thing of the past, football will still be monitored by man chugging…
