Die Erfüllung von Günter Seegers Lebenstraum hängt an einem Gas-Anschluss. Denn ohne den kann der Sternekoch auch in New York nicht arbeiten. 40 Mitarbeiter sind angestellt, die luxuriöse offene Küche glänzt, das kleine Restaurant im angesagten West Village ist komplett eingerichtet. Aber seit 14 Tagen kommt der Gasmann nicht, um den Hebel umzulegen. Der 66-jährige Starkoch hat schon vieles erreicht: Einen Michelin-Stern in seinem ersten Restaurant in Pforzheim - damals in den 70ern. Eine Karriere bei Ritz-Carlton in den USA, ein eigenes Spitzenrestaurant in Atlanta. Und jetzt soll es als Krönung seiner langen Karriere New York sein. Wird sein Traum erfüllt, oder scheitert er an einer simplen Versorgungsleitung? Auch Doreen Winkler ist mit großen Ambitionen hierhergekommen. Die 35-Jährige aus einer sächsischen Kleinstadt ist in kurzer Zeit zu einer gefragten Sommelière geworden. Als Freelancerin berät sie Restaurants und Privatkunden, moderiert sie Weinproben und sitzt in Wettbewerbsjurys. Die kulinarische Repor... show more


 

Part-time philosophy professor caught trying to commit arson in St. Patrick's Cathedral in NYC

Lamparello wis charged with attempted arson, reckless endangerment, trespassing and some violations of city codes regarding transport of flammable materials in public places, NYPD Deputy Commissioner of Intelligence and Counterterrorism John Miller announced Thursday.

“In the early morning hours of yesterday, before proceeding to New York City, he did book a flight to Italy for $2,800 that would have left at 5:20 this evening,” Miller said.

He was approached by an usher who told him he couldn’t bring them into the cathedral, Miller said. When Lamparello put the items down, some gasoline spilled in the Foyer, according to Miller.
Regarding his procedure, it sounds to me like he wanted to be caught. Otherwise, I wonder why he intended to burn it down in broad daylight, when of course an usher would patrol the door to keep out people like him. He cannot be that stupid.

Fordham student dies after falling off clock tower

A private mass was held on campus on Sunday night for 22-year-old Sydney Monfries, who died after climbing inside the university iconic clock tower.

Monfries was just a few weeks away from graduation and earning a bachelor’s degree in journalism at Fordham College at Rose Hill. Police said Monfries and her friends sneaked inside Keating Clock Tower around 3 a.m. on Sunday with designs on climbing to the top.

“It’s like a tradition, apparently, for seniors to sneak into the tower and climb up. And they were like trying to get good views of the city,” student Antonia Greene said.

Today the old City Hall station—closed since 1945—is popular with urban explorers. If you want to avoid a criminal trespass charge, you can take a sanctioned tour, available only to members of the New York Transit Museum. But be warned: Tickets only go on sale three times a year and sell out quickly.

The next round of tickets goes on sale to members on April 17. It is “one of our most popular behind-the-scenes tours,” says Regina Asborno, deputy director of the New York Transit Museum.

How corporate interests frame new laws


Because I couldn't read the article yet, but still have a slight idea of what it may be about, I would like to ask you: Does anyone else have problems opening this link? It seems like it was deleted, because whenever I try to open it, it redirects me to the website itself. Still, there may be a similar article that has been published by the affiliate site The Rochester Democrat & Chonicle. Maybe it's the same article under a different header? I don't know.

Teacher who was fired for topless selfie plans on suing former employer

She says a topless selfie she took of herself in her bedroom in 2016 and sent to a former boyfriend who also teaches in the school district somehow leaked to at least one student at the middle school.

Miranda is planning to file a $3 million federal suit for gender discrimination, alleging her rights as a woman were violated. She said she will not file the lawsuit if the school district gives her her job back.

"Anytime a man has ever exposed his chest, no one has ever commented or had any problem with it whatsoever," he said. "But when a woman displays her chest, as happened here, she's get fired from her job."
Does anyone have ever heard of a man who was fired as a teacher to a middleschool class because he sent a dick pic to his former girlfriend, and this pic was somehow leaked? If yes, then, we have to check his case too, as a precedent.

New York City awaits first congestion price tax ever

Plans call for a six-member commission to decide how much motorists will get soaked for the privilege of sitting in Midtown traffic, with electronic readers automatically assessing the tolls.
Previous proposals have called for fees between $11 and $12 each for cars and $25 for trucks, and they could come in addition to other tolls for crossing New York City’s bridges and tunnels.

But as Manhattan’s streets grew increasingly clogged in recent years with Uber and Lyft drivers waiting for app-based hails, Gov. Cuomo warmed to the idea as a way to raise money for the crumbling subway system.

Bill de Blasio challenges Councilmember Kalman Yeger on Palestine comment

First: A letter to him, published by Mondoweiss.

You speak about Israel providing Jewish safety. Standing up for Israeli apartheid, as you have repeatedly done, does not promote safety. Quite the contrary. Our notion of safety is a city and a world in which all people feel and are safe. Yes, that means safety through solidarity with one another. That means safety by opposing all forms of injustice, which very much includes the injustice of occupation and the denial of a people’s right to live freely in their homes and their land.

In all your remarks, your lack of recognition of the Nakba (catastrophe in Arabic) of 1948, which refers to the expulsion of 750,000 Palestinians from their homes and land during the creation of Israel, reveals a gross disregard for the rights and well-being of the Palestinian people. That is also true about your lack of recognition (and denial)

Amid her fights for environment, AOC forgets who got her in

“I thought AOC would be our savior, but that’s not the case,” complained Roxanne Delgado, a local activist who said she has tried for months to get in touch with the congresswoman for help saving an animal shelter and to clean up parks in the district.

“I want AOC or a representative from AOC to be there,” Anthony Vitaliano, a former cop and Community Board 11 member, said at a Feb. 28 board meeting.

Although Ocasio-Cortez tweeted about improving mail service in The Bronx this month, Vitaliano said he was still experiencing problems and waiting for her office to arrange a meeting with post-office management.
Damn. This way, she is not going to be re-elected, and her opponent who recently threw her hat in the ring, is more likely to make the race. For Pete's sake, this cannto be true.

NYS local stole Little Debbie truck, didn't eat anything of the carriage


(Disclaimer: Not The Onion, this really happened. And yes, the man possible stars as a Disney movie prince.)
Several minutes later, officers found the truck driving north on Lake Street in the area of Bakers Lane. The truck was stopped and the driver was arrested.
Police identified the driver as 38-year-old Joseph Tocco. Police say Tocco admitted to taking the vehicle and using it to visit family and friends. The keys for the truck had been left inside the unlocked cab. Police say it did not appear that any of the inventory was missing.

Republican woman intends to run against AOC after failed deal with Amazon

“ [AOC]chose ideology over paychecks,” swannabe candidate and medical journalist Ruth Papazian, noting that Amazon vowed to create 25,000 jobs before pulling out of its deal to open a campus in Queens. “People need jobs. We don’t have economic diversity in the outer boroughs.”
Look at her picture in the article and then imagine her to tell you that you chose ideology over paychecks. Could you take her serious?
Anyway, but seriously: Amazon is known to employ people below the average payment of at least 12 Dollars or so. The warehouse conditions for employees are knowingly horrible, you cannot tell people that this was the most reasonable choice, to let Amazon create another headquarter in your borough because jobs were desperately needed. There have to be better choices, and AOC has to find them.
A daughter of Egyptian immigrants, Papazian said she would run on a platform of creating jobs, not chasing them away.

Kirsten Gillibrand (D - NYS) now officially runs for president


Gillibrand, 52, made the announcement on Twitter with a two-and-a-half- minute campaign video titled "The Brave." She discusses "The Star-Spangled Banner" and urges Americans in "the home of the brave" to support her and her policies.

Gillibrand will conduct an MSNBC town hall Monday in Michigan. Then she is off to Iowa for two days before heading to Nevada. She plans on making her first major speech as a candidate next Sunday in New York – "straight to President Drumpf's doorstep" in front of Drumpf International.

Gillibrand's biggest publicity splash as a would-be candidate was the controversy that flared up last week over how she handled a sexual harassment complaint in her office last year.

Donald Trump Jr. defends Chelsea Clinton in standoff with NYU student on islamophobic comments


“I’m so sorry,” she said. “Certainly it was never my intention. I do believe words matter.”
Still, the student persisted in dressing down Clinton, claiming the shootings were “stoked by people like you.”

While it’s unclear which statements the student was referring, the exchange subsequently prompted a series of reactions on Twitter, including one from Drumpf Jr. who called it “sickening.”

Instead, he contended that he didn’t see white nationalism as much of an issue, speculating that the issue lies within “a small group of people that have very, very serious problems, I guess.”

Murdered mobster Frank Cali met murderer beforehand


Cali, 53, exited his home shortly before 9:20 p.m. Wednesday after a motorist in a blue pickup truck reversed the vehicle into the mobster’s parked Cadillac Escalade, causing it to “rock significantly,” Chief of Detectives Dermot Shea has said.

“It’s not like they came out, started a fistfight,” the high-ranking source said. “The importance of that is — it’s almost as if proof of the concept that hitting the car was contrived.”

Cali tried to escape the hail of bullets by hiding under the Cadillac, which initially led investigators to believe that he had been run over during the attack. Police no longer believe that was the case.

Vice leader of Gambino family shot in Todt Hill section, pronounced dead in hospital


Investigators say 53-year-old Francesco “Franky Boy” Cali was shot multiple times outside 25 Hilltop Terrace in the exclusive Todt Hill section shortly after 9:15 p.m.

Federal prosecutors in Brooklyn had referred to Cali in court filings in recent years as the underboss of the Gambino organization, related through marriage to the Inzerillo clan in the Sicilian Mafia.

His only mob-related criminal conviction came a decade ago, when Cali pleaded guilty in an extortion conspiracy involving a failed attempt to build a NASCAR track on Staten Island. He was sentenced to 16 months in federal prison and was released in 2009.

One and half of a ton of Cocaine seized in ports of New York and Newark, NJ


(Just saying for the Trumpists who crave the wall along the US-Mexican border: No, the wall wouldn't have prevented these amounts of cocaine, because the wall doesn't extend overseas. Stick it in your pipe and smoke it: The wall wouldn't prevent the US from drug trafficking, even ships are more favourable for the dealers than the plain way across the landborder.)
The bust was part of a joint operation of the DEA, Customs and Border Protection, Coast Guard, Homeland Security Investigations, New York Police Department and New York State Police.

"This interception prevents a massive quantity of drugs from getting to the streets and in the hands of our children," said Troy Miller, CBP Director of New York Field Operations, in a statement.

On a national level, the volume of drugs seized at ports of entry and in the field has been fluctuating. Officials at the borders seized 6,550 pounds of cocaine in 2018, down from 9,346 pounds in 2017, but up from 5,473 pounds i... show more

Charges against NYPD officers in rape case dropped


Because the police are there to maintain law and order, how would they ever fall from grace by committing a misdemeanour on their own?

Former NYC mayor Michael Bloomberg not going to run for president


(Unlike the former Starbucks CEO Howard Schultz, Michael Bloomberg felled the right decision not to ruin his entire reputation by running as a self-financed candidate who embraces his so-called independence from anybody. No duties for Howie, huh?)
“I know what it takes to run a winning campaign, and every day when I read the news, I grow more frustrated by the incompetence in the Oval Office. I know we can do better as a country. And I believe I would defeat Donald Drumpf in a general election,” Bloomberg wrote. “But I am clear-eyed about the difficulty of winning the Democratic nomination in such a crowded field.”

“Many people have urged me to run. Some have told me that to win the Democratic nomination, I would need to change my views to match the polls,” Bloomberg wrote. “But I’ve been hearing that my whole political career.”
