(ACF), a professional, organization for chefs and cooks, was founded in 1929 in New York City by three chefs’ organizations: the Société Culinaire Philanthropique, the Vatel Club and the Chefs de Cuisine Association of America.

November 21, 2014 is the 50th Anniversary of the Opening of the Verrazano Bridge Anti-Italian Bigotry and Prejudice in Brooklyn In 1909 my grandfather and the other Italian immigrants experienced the anti-Italian bigotry and prejudice that was prevalent at that time especially during the Hudson-Fulton Celebration in New York City. The Italians protested passionately the exclusion of the Italian explorer Giovanni da Verrazzano from the exposition. In 1524 Verrazzano was commissioned by the French king, Francis I, to find a passage-way to Asia. He sailed westward, landing in the vicinity of present day North Carolina and then sailed north into the present day Hudson River on his ship La Dauphine. His explorations gave France its claim to the lands in North America. The English explorer, Henry Hudson, didn’t sail into New York Harbor until 1609. Apparently history chose to ignore Verrazzano’s voyage, his explorations, and his discovery of the Hudson River and New York Harbor, and instead credited the dis ...
On this Day in History: November 18 1928 CE – Walt Disney Debuts Steamboat Willie A pair of world icons hit the silver screen for the first time at the Colony Theater in New York City on November 18, 1928: Mickey and Minnie Mouse starred in Steamboat Willie, one of the earliest examples of a motion picture soundtrack working in sync with an animated feature. Funded by Walt Disney, the 8-minute cartoon launched his career and led to the development of an entertainment juggernaut. Widely regarded as Mickey and Minnie’s first appearance on film, in truth the pair showed up in a handful of screen tests several months before. The process to make Steamboat Willie began when Walt Disney approached his brother and co-producer, Roy, about his fascination with a movie called The Jazz Singer in 1927. (The two-hour musical featured the first synchronized soundrack in history.) Though at least two other animated shorts had sound -- one in 1924 and the other just weeks before Steamboat Willie was released -- no ...

For those interested, my town has approved the demolition of this country's most incredible example of 1950's art and design. The Gander interNational Airport terminal was once the world's most important airport. Seriously!! We linked Europe with North America as being strategically placed on a direct line between London and New York City and an ideal refueling location. Canada invested $3 million in developing the terminal in 1954, that's $30 million today. The terminal is perfectly preserved with amazing art, furniture and sculpture designed and made by leading Canadian artists and designers of their time. Please help us draw attention to get this amazing place on the national historic site registry. Fill out the nomination on the linked website it takes 4-5 minutes. Thank you! !

Food for thought... we didn't just wake up (well, some did) and find our nation here. We have been poisoned through complacency... one issue at a time... Saul David Alinsky (January 30, 1909 – June 12, 1972) was an American community organizer and writer. He is generally considered to be the founder of modern community organizing. He is often noted for his book Rules for Radicals . (The book is better known to OBAMA as THE BIBLE!) In the course of nearly four decades of political organizing, Alinsky received much criticism, but also gained praise from many public figures. His organizing skills were focused on improving the living conditions of poor communities across North America. In the 1950s, he began turning his attention to improving conditions in the African-American ghettos, beginning with Chicago's and later traveling to other ghettos in California, Michigan, New York City, and a dozen other "trouble spots". His ideas were adapted in the 1960s by some U.S. college students and other young cou .. ...
Tatanic RMS Titanic was a British passenger liner that sank in the North Atlantic Ocean on 15 April 1912 after colliding with an iceberg during her Maiden Voyage from Southampton, UK to New York City, US. The sinking of Titanic caused the deaths of more than 1,500 people in one of the deadliest peacetime maritime disasters in modern history. The RMS Titanic was the largest ship afloat at the time it entered service. Titanic was the second of three Olympic class ocean liners operated by the White Star Line, and was built by the Harland and Wolff shipyard in Belfast with Thomas Andrews as her naval architect. Andrews was among those lost during the sinking. On her Maiden Voyage, she carried 2,224 passengers and crew. Under the command of Edward Smith, the ship's passengers included some of the wealthiest people in the world, as well as hundreds of emigrants from Great Britain and Ireland, Scandinavia and elsewhere throughout Europe seeking a new life in North America.

Week of February 3, 2014 Yorktown, Virginia: 1781. British General Lord Charles Cornwallis has traveled here to make his stand. As he awaits reinforcements from General Sir Henry Clinton in New York City, the Continental Army and the French Navy tighten the noose. Does the British Army, once seemingly invincible, have it within them to pull out one more victory? Or will General George Washington, French Admiral Comte de Grass, the Marquis de Lafayette, Baron von Steuben, and the Continental Army spring the deadliest trap the British have ever faced in North America? If the Continentals lose, the war will grind on in stalemate. But should the Continentals win, a brave new world will emerge. But what manner of world will it be? The American Revolution may be over, but the War for Independence is just beginning. With the American victory at Yorktown and the signing of the Treaty of Paris, all of the British soldiers in America withdraw by November, 1783.

UPDATED JANUARY 17, 2014, 5:44 PM In February 2010, I visited four carriage horse stables in New York City at the invitation of a member of the Carriage Operators of North America. I was accompanied by an experienced equine surgeon, as well as a veterinarian who is an horsewoman with a special interest in animal behavior. Given free access to all areas of the stables and to the horses’ veterinary records, we reviewed the husbandry, veterinary care and farrier care the horses received. Our daylong inspection ended with a carriage ride through Central Park, which enabled us to inspect the horses at work. The American Association of Equine Practitioners paid all expenses associated with our visit, and we were not compensated by the carriage industry. On a visi ...

Steve Zeitchik of the Los Angeles Times spent what seems like a good amount of time with U2 earlier this month when the band was doing publicity for "Ordinary Love" in New York City. That included a visit to the studio as U2 continued to work on its upcoming album -- an album that today's article says is due in April. [Note: Most current rumors have the album out on March 31 worldwide and April 1 in North America.] The article specifically mentions a new song called "Invisible," that's described as "an anthemic number about leaving one's hometown." There are also a few descriptions (in the reporter's words) of the new album: "...a collection of songs told partly from the perspective of an innocent and partly from a seasoned veteran." "it has traces of the Clash and Sex Pistols and Kraftwerk ... but it also comes laden with soul and old-school R&B." "Thematically, the album will center on the collision between hard-earned wisdom and youthful hunger."

Ice Age: New York New York City marks the southernmost boundary of an ice sheet that mantled much of North America. The Laurentide ice sheet advanced and retreated over a period of 60,000 years. The last advance reached maximum 22,000 years ago, extending from southeastern Alberta across what are now the Great Lakes to the East Coast. Two lobes surged down the Connecticut and Hudson River valleys, sculpting the land and depositing the moraines and outwash that would become Long Island. Sea water was locked up in ice, lowering the sea level by 350 feet compared to today; from Cape Cod southward, the coastal plain jutted out 50 to 100 miles further than the present-day shoreline, almost to the edge of the continental shelf. The Hudson River sluiced through a deep gorge that cut through the plain and emptied into the Atlantic. Glaciers literally created Long Island, and carved out the landscape we know today as the New York City region. Moraines, lakes and ponds, kettle holes, peat bogs, meltwater streams an ...

Today is Columbus Day in the United States. Instead of celebrating a guy who never actually visited North America, join me in honoring the brave Vikings who made the journey in the year 1000 – and the year 1893! The Viking is a 19th-century replica of the ancient Gokstad ship. The original ship was built in the mid-9th century and used for a ship burial around 900. The replica that was built in Norway at the Framnæs Shipyard in Sanefjord between 1892 and 1893. In 1893, the Viking was sailed by Captain Magnus Andersen and his eleven-man Norwegian crew across the wide Atlantic Ocean from Norway to the United States. The ship made stops in Newfoundland and New York City before traveling via the Hudson River, Erie Canal and Great Lakes to Chicago for the World's Columbian Exhibition in Chicago. Sailing from Bergen, Norway to Newfoundland took twenty-eight days on the open sea. The Chicago Tribune reported that the 4,800-mile journey from Bergen to Chicago took more than two months in total.
Most of us can relate with the quote below from Jhumpa Lahiri that I read today in the context of her promotion tour in USA of her new novel Lowland . Quote “What happens when you leave a place?” she asks. “I feel like time kind of stops. And I think, in a certain sense, for my parents, I imagine, and for others like them, you leave a place and you leave it behind both physically and, in a sense, temporally. My mother left India in 1966, and she would go back in 1976 and ’86 and ’96 and say, ‘But where’s the country I left? It’s gone!’ Because, of course, that’s the nature of life. Life pushes forward, and it moves on. And it moves on without you.” Lahiri recently left New York City for Rome, where she currently lives with her husband and two children, so, being back in North America on a book tour, she’s having this experience for the first time in her life. “It’s funny,” she says. “I write about foreigners, I’ve been raised by foreigners, and I’ve felt foreign” — ...
Here is a letter published by a Roman Catholic representing the Church, originally published in America in 1869. The message was written to Protestants and is forceful and to the point, with lots of Scriptural proofs for its position.   —"Why Don’t You Keep Holy the Sabbath Day?" pages 3-15, in The Clifton Tracts, Vol. 4, published by the Roman Catholic Church. Originally released in North America in 1869 through the T. W. Strong Publishing Company of New York City, so that those outside the papal fold might return to the not partial, but full, authority of the Mother Church of the Vatican .   I am going to propose a very plain and serious question to those who follow "the Bible and the Bible only" to give their most earnest attention. It is this: Why do you not keep holy the Sabbath Day?   The command of Almighty God stands clearly written in the Bible in these words: "Remember the Sabbath day, to keep it holy. Six days shalt thou labor, and do all thy work; but the seventh day is the Sabbath of t ...

NEWS! Buna ziua dragi copii! 11.03.2013 – Schita MIX – Tematica schitei – “Downtown”. Pe parcurs a 2 perechi universitare , ve-ti realiza o compozitie linear frontala, a unui Downtown: Def. Downtown is a term primarily used in North America by English speakers to refer to a city's core (or center) or central business district (usually in a geographical, commercial, and community sense). The term is thought to have been coined in New York City, where it was in use by the 1830s to refer to the original town at the southern tip of the island of Manhattan. As the town of New York grew into a city, the only direction it could grow on the island was toward the north, proceeding upriver from the original settlement (the "up" and "down" terminology in turn came from the customary map design in which up was north and down was south). Thus, anything north of the original town became known as "uptown" (Upper Manhattan), while the original town (which was also New York's only major center of business at the ...
Faith Matters: Imam shifts from Ground Zero to common ground Staff Reports Saturday, February 23, 2013 Two years before the 1979 Iran hostage crisis awakened Americans to the dangers of Islamic extremism, there was an even larger, though briefer and less-heralded hostage crisis in Washington. And Feisal Abdul Rauf’s parents were right in the middle of it. For nearly two days, a dozen Muslim gunmen seized three buildings and took 149 hostages — among them nine Muslims inside Washington’s Muslim Center, including the center’s imam, Dr. Muhammad Abdul Rauf, and his wife, Buthayna Ayad Rauf. “The most shocking thing to me in that situation was that it was Muslims who had taken my parents hostage,” wrote their son, Feisal Abdul Rauf, then a 28-year-old engineer, now widely known as the imam behind the provocatively and inaccurately dubbed “Ground Zero Mosque” in New York City. Rauf’s Egyptian-born parents, held at gunpoint and threatened with death for nearly 40 hours, survived the ordeal. Th ...

Now, only eighty-seven are protected. That’s just the beginning of the problem ...

Receiving this email, my gut reaction was why in my country, one of the largest democracies, progeny of political elite never participates in such intellectual pursuits.What is reflected from political heirs is not intellectual curiosity but arrogance and hubris: A few weeks ago, New York City--along with a long swath of North America's Atlantic coast and several Carribean islands--was battered...by Superstorm Sandy, a weather system that caused unprecedented damage to hundreds of communities. The Institute for Public Knowledge is organizing a Public Forum at NYU to think broadly about this storm, climate change, and the city of New York. How do we prepare for a future with more frequent and violent storms? What are the roles for government agencies, private organizations, and individual citizens in emergency preparedness? What are the public health implications--both long-term and short? Does New York need a massive design intervention, or some new housing codes? When we rebuild, where should we rebuild- ...

Christopher Columbus discovered America in 1492 and we celebrate him each year on Columbus Day. At least that is what all elementary school children were always taught: “In 1492, Columbus sailed the ocean blue.”Here is the problem, it’s not really accurate. Myth: Death Penalty Does Not Deter Crime Columbus never did “discover” North America, and the regions he did explore were already inhabited. He only discovered them from the viewpoint of the Europeans. Yet his first voyage did prove one thing for sure, that the earth was not only round, but that it was bigger than he had thought. One of the first known celebrations marking the discovery of the “New World” by Christopher Columbus was in 1792, when a ceremony organized by the Colombian Order was held in New York City honoring Christopher Columbus and the 300th anniversary of his landing in the Bahamas. Then, on October 12, 1866 the Italian population of New York organized the first celebration of the discovery of America. Three years later, ...
On this date in 1882, on the Fox River in Appleton, Wisconsin, the first hydroelectric central station to serve a system of private and commercial customers in North America went online. It was conceived by Henry James Rogers, president of the Appleton Paper and Pulp Co. and of the Appleton Gas Light Co. H. E. Jacobs, a licensing agent for Western Edison Light Co. of Chicago, told Rogers about Thomas Edison’s plans for a steam-driven electric power plant in New York City. In May 1882, Rogers brought together a group of investors – A.L. Smith, H.D. Smith, and Charles Beveridge – as the Appleton Edison Electric Light Company. As a first step, the company ordered two Edison K-type generators. The first was installed at Appleton Paper and Pulp on 27 Sep 1882, but did not work. After three days of troubleshooting, the problems were corrected and power generation (ca. 12.5 kw) commenced. The first buildings to be illuminated were Rogers' home at 625 West Prospect Ave. (maintained today as the Hearths ...

Baha'i faith leader Abdu'l Baha arrives in New York City on the steamer SS Cedric to begin a 32 city tour of North America where he would give over 200 speeches on the "oneness of religion".

Speaking of the Titanic, it arrives in Queenstown, Ireland (now Cobh) to pick up the last passengers before setting out across the Atlantic Ocean.
