ON THIS DATE (23 YEARS AGO) October 25, 1991 - Bill Graham/Wolodia Grajonca (b. January 8, 1931) tragically and sadly died in a helicopter crash, when it hit a 200ft utility tower in Sonoma County, California Born in Berlin, a Holocaust survivor and orphaned, fate eventually took him to America, where he stayed in a foster home in The Bronx in New York City. After being taunted as an immigrant and being called a Nazi because of his German accent, he taught himself a perfect New York accent, graduated from DeWitt Clinton High School, changed his name, and was drafted into the United States Army in 1951, serving in the Korean War, where he was awarded both the Bronze Star and Purple Heart. Graham moved from New York to San Francisco in the early 1960s to be closer to his sister, Rita. He was invited to attend a free concert in Golden Gate Park, where he made contact with the San Francisco Mime Troupe, a radical theater group. He gave up a promising business career to manage the troupe in 1965. After Mime Tr ...

ANSWER TO TODAY'S TRIVIA QUESTION-Thomas Augustus Watson was an assistant to Alexander Graham Bell, notably in the invention of the telephone in 1876. He is best known because his name was one of the first words spoken over the telephone. "Mr. Watson - Come here - I want to see you." were the first words Bell said using the new invention, according to Bell's laboratory notebook. On January 25, 1915, Watson was at 333 Grant Avenue in San Francisco to receive the first transcontinental telephone call, placed by Bell from the Telephone Building at 15 Dey Street in New York City. President Woodrow Wilson and the mayors of both cities were also involved in the call.

MUITA GENTE AINDA NAO SABE DA OTIMA LEI QUE O PREFEITO BILL DE BLASIO ASSINOU! Thursday, July 10, 2014 New York -- New York will offer identification cards to residents regardless of their immigration statuses under a plan expected that was signed into law by Mayor Bill de Blasio Thursday to create the nation's biggest municipal ID program. The legislation paves the way for the creation of a municipal ID for all New York City residents who meet the program's proof of identity and city residency requirements. The City will immediately initiate implementation of the program, with the goal of launching the new identification card in January 2015. de Blasio announced Thursdzay that the card will be issued at no cost for applicants during the program's first year. "The message is that the city belongs to everyone, regardless of who you are," Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito said before the heavily Democratic council passed the measure 43-3 back in June.

Forget Captain America and Thor, Marvel is changing Iron Man now too! Find out what's going to be different here: goo.gl/N8BDfO - Article Bits- The fine people over at Marvel have gotten their magic wands out and changed quite a bit about the their most beloved characters over the past few days. Moving forward in the comic world, Sam Wilson, better known as The Falcon, will be taking over for Captain America, and Thor’s mantle will pass to a woman. As such, many fans expected a huge alteration for Iron Man, but upon further review, it seems his big change will be a whole lot less drastic. According to Entertainment Weekly, Superior Iron Man set to debut in November as part of the Avengers Now! Initiative, will give Tony Stark a brand new silver suit, and it will see him move from his beloved New York City to San Francisco. Apparently, he has a radical plan for the California city. Some residents are behind it, but a good percentage are very opposed to whatever it is he wants to do. In addition to the lo ...
Evanston, Cook County, Illinois Grosse Point Lighthouse, Lake Michigan . Groose Point was the lead light into the Chicago harbor. The keepers house was built in the Italianate style. The promontory on which it stands was named Grosse Pointe (Great Point) by early French explorers and traders in the 17th century. Over the years, the U.S. Government dropped the French "e" on Point. The facility is on the National Register of Historic Places and is a National Historic Landmark. "As lake traffic increased over the years, so did the size and importance of Chicago. During the late 1800s Chicago many times had more arrivals and departures in a typical 8-month shipping season than did the year-round ocean ports of New York City and San Francisco. Mariners had to be particularly careful when following the shoreline into Chicago's harbor, as there were shallow water areas (shoals) off Grosse Point responsible for sinking or stranding vessels. Undoubtedly, the greatest tragedy to strike these waters occurred in the ...

June 19, 2014 is National Martini Day Today is National Martini Day! Although the exact origin of the martini is unknown, this iconic drink has earned a permanent place in the pantheon of classic cocktails. The first printed recipe for a “Martinez” cocktail appeared in a bartending manual published in San Francisco in 1887. However, historians disagree over whether the beverage actually originated on the West Coast. In 1911, a New York City bartender named Martini di Arma di Taggia began serving a cocktail made with gin, vermouth, orange bitters, and an olive garnish. The martini gained widespread popularity among Manhattan socialites, and has been associated with New York ever since. Today, 50% of all cocktails are served in a martini glass. Some of the most famous (historical and fictional) martini lovers include: John D. Rockefeller, Humphrey Bogart, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Clark Gable, Ernest Hemingway, and James Bond. To celebrate National Martini Day, enjoy a refreshing martini in the company of ...

TODAY IN THE PAST: JUNE 4, 1876 The Transcontinental Express train completes its first complete run from New York City to San Francisco. For the first time, Americans could traverse the entire continent in a mere 389 hours. Many feared that the speed of the journey would cause palsies, brain-explosion, or even time travel, but this happened very rarely, and soon the "Trans-con" was a huge success. "At last our United States are truly United," declared the New York Tribune, "bound from end to end by a straight road of gleaming steel and Chinaman bone." But this was not entirely the truth: The train routinely made a dramatic high jump over the Colorado River all the way up to 1978, when Jimmy Carter insisted that a bridge would be "safer." And thus the Nanny State was born. —"More Information Than You Require" (2008) \|/ Reposted by: -H- Team /|\ Hodgmania

Mark Twain, guitarist, singer, and literary legend, was first exposed to music by his sister Pamilla. She supplemented the family income by teaching guitar and piano. He obtained his guitar used in 1861 (in 1835 it was $10 new) and kept it in close company until shortly before his death in 1910. He sang and played for newspaper men of the Nevada Territories, miners from California's Gold Rush Days and for passengers aboard Ajax, a clipper ship bound for the Hawaiian Islands. But mostly he played for the willing women of the West. In December 1866, Mark Twain brought his Martin 2 ½-17 guitar aboard the steamer America and sailed from San Francisco to New York City, where he would seek his fortune. ~ Excerpted from a Bianca Soros' article in Acoustic Guitar magazine.

Jane Dornacker (October 1, 1947 – October 22, 1986) was an American rock musician, actress, and comedienne turned traffic reporter. In 1986, while working for WNBC 660 AM Radio in New York City (which became WFAN in 1988), Dornacker was aboard during two unrelated crashes of the helicopters leased to WNBC. She survived the first crash, but was killed in the second crash into the Hudson River, which occurred as she was in the middle of a live traffic report. Her death came shortly after that of her husband, Bob Knickerbocker, orphaning their 16-year-old daughter. The NTSB investigation determined the cause of the fatal crash to have been use of improper parts and poor maintenance on the part of Spectrum Helicopters of Ridgefield Park, New Jersey. Dornacker was the tall lead singer (Leila), keyboardist, and songwriter of the 1970s/1980s San Francisco "tack" rock group Leila and the Snakes. Pearl Gates and Pamela Wood provided supporting vocals. Their repertoire included "Rock and Roll Weirdos," "Pyramid P ...
Esther Jane Williams (August 8, 1921 – June 6, 2013) was an American competitive swimmer and actress. Williams set multiple national and regional swimming records in her late teens as part of the Los Angeles Athletic Club swim team. Unable to compete in the 1940 Summer Olympics because of the outbreak of World War II, she joined Billy Rose's Aquacade, where she took on the role vacated by Eleanor Holm after the show's move from New York City to San Francisco. While in the city, she spent five months swimming alongside Olympic gold medal winner and Tarzan star, Johnny Weissmuller.[1] Williams caught the attention of MGM scouts at the Aquacade. After appearing in several small roles, alongside Mickey Rooney in an Andy Hardy film, and future five-time co-star Van Johnson in A Guy Named Joe, Williams made a series of films in the 1940s and early 1950s known as "aquamusicals," which featured elaborate performances with synchronized swimming and diving. From 1945 to 1949, Williams had at least one film listed ...
What does Sauk Village and the Indy 500 have in common? Well here's a bit of history even the leaders of the Village don't know... By Joseph Wiszowaty | By 1912 automobiles began replacing the horse and buggy and the nation’s first transcontinental highway for automobiles is conceived to go from coast to coast. The Lincoln Highway, the first memorial to America’s fallen President Abraham Lincoln is planned by Indiana entrepreneur Carl Fisher. The formal dedication is held October 31, 1913 and the highway would span from Time Square in New York City to Lincoln Park in San Francisco. The Great Sauk Indian Trail was designated in 1913 part of the original Lincoln Highway. This “Main Street of America” became Strassburg’s and eventually, Sauk Village’s Main Street. Today Sauk Village is now within the nationally designated Lincoln Highway scenic byway across Illinois. The Lincoln Highway, the “Main Street of America”, would find its way coming down Sauk Trail through what was once known a ...
Born in Watts, Los Angeles, Sylvester James, Jr. developed a love of singing through the Gospel Choirs of his Pentecostal church. Leaving the congregation after being persecuted for his homosexuality, he was an early founder of a group of black cross-dressers and trans women known as The Disquotays, who disbanded in 1970. Moving to San Francisco, he embraced the counterculture and joined drag troupe The Cockettes, eventually producing solo shows heavily influenced by female blues and jazz singers like Billie Holiday and Josephine Baker. During their critically panned tour of New York City, Sylvester left the Cockettes to focus on his solo career. Fronting Sylvester and his Hot Band, he released two commercially unsuccessful albums on Blue Thumb Records in 1973. Gaining new backing singers in the form of Two Tons O' Fun and Jeanie Tracy, he obtained a recording contract with Harvey Fuqua of Fantasy Records. His first solo album, Sylvester (1977), was a moderate success, and was followed by acclaimed disco ...

Marcia A. Strassman (born April 28, 1948) American actress best known for her roles as Julie Kotter in the TV sitcom Welcome Back, Kotter and Diane Szalinski in the 1989 feature film Honey, I Shrunk the Kids, its sequel Honey, I Blew Up the Kid and the 3-D film spin-off Honey, I Shrunk the Audience! which was shown at several Disney theme parks through mid-2010. Strassman was born in New York City. Among her earliest acting credits was an appearance in an episode of The Patty Duke Show. In 1967, she became a recording artist for Uni Records. Her debut single, "The Flower Children", was a top 40 hit in many West Coast U.S. markets, most notably hitting in San Diego and in San Francisco; the track also hit in Vancouver, British Columbia (both at CKLG 730 AM and CFUN 1410 AM in July 1967). However, the single failed to break out nationally in either country; the record stalled at in the U.S., and just sneaked into RPM's Top 100 for Canada, peaking at Strassman's follow-up release, "The Groovy World of Jack . ...
Armando Peraza Passes Away At 89 By Jordan Liffengren Published April 15, 2014 Legendary percussionist Armando Peraza passed away Monday at the age of 89. Peraza worked with many Jazz and Rock luminaries including Charlie Parker, George Shearing, Tito Puente, Cal Tjader, Dizzy Gillespie, Dave Brubeck, Eric Clapton, Linda Ronstadt, Frank Zappa, Rick James, Aretha Franklin, Jaco Pastorius, and Carlos Santana. Born in Havana, Cuba in 1924, Armando Peraza arrived in New York City via Mexico in 1949, where his intuitive and exuberant playing style translated into immediate work for big bands with Machito and Slim Gaillard. It was while touring with Gaillard that Peraza first visited the city he would eventually call home, San Francisco, California. Peraza joined Carlos Santana’s band in 1972, playing for nearly twenty years with the group before retiring as a full time member in 1990. In the 1990′s and 2000′s, Peraza would make occasional guest appearances at concerts, festivals and percussion workshops. ...
Born in San Francisco, California, Roland's father managed a theatre and she became a child actress who went on to work in vaudeville. She was hired by director Sidney Olcott who had seen her on stage in New York City. She appeared in her first film for Kalem Studios in 1909 and along with Gene Gauntier was soon billed as a "Kalem Girl." Roland was eventually sent to Kalem's West Coast studio where she was the lead actress and overseer of "Kalem House" where all the actors lived. At 12 years old, Roland was the youngest student at Hollywood High School, having attended the school around 1904 or 1905 (there is debate on this date). Roland was Hollywood High School's first homegrown movie star. Roland left Kalem and went on to even more fame at Balboa Films, where she was under contract from 1914–1917. In 1915 she appeared in a 14-episode adventure film serial titled The Red Circle. A shrewd businessperson, she established her own production company and signed a distribution deal with Pathé to make six n ...

Book Review: 'Mover and Shaker' by Andy McCue Walter O'Malley not only moved the Dodgers to L.A. but persuaded the Giants' owner to move to San Francisco. By Paul Dickson April 4, 2014 I grew up just outside of New York City, in the years before the Brooklyn Dodgers and New York Giants headed west. I learned about baseball from a great-grandfather from Brooklyn, who had once been a business partner of Charlie Ebbets (the man who built Ebbets Field, home grounds of the Brooklyn Dodgers). So I approached "Mover and Shaker," Andy McCue's biography of the Dodgers owner who moved the team to Los Angeles, with a chip on my shoulder. The chip was not for Mr. McCue but for Walter O'Malley (1903–79), a man reviled by several generations of New Yorkers. For some, the chip is the size of a log from the Petrified Forest. Peter Golenbock's "Bums: An Oral History of the Brooklyn Dodgers" (1984) includes journalist Jack Newfield's account of the time he suggested an experiment to fellow scribe and Brooklyn native Pete ...

I love San Francisco and the Bay Area. It was home for a dozen years, where I met my wife, started the Taproot Foundation and my two kids were born. But when my second child was born we decided to move to New York City to raise them. Here are the eight reasons I wanted to raise my kids in New York City instead of the Bay Area. 1. Some of my fondest childhood memories are of snowmen, snow angels, snow ball fights and sledding. 2. There are so many amazing paths to take in life and it is important to have different role models growing up to see that diversity. In the Bay Area there are two paths: tech or other. In New York City no two of the parents of my kids' friends work in the same field. My kids interact daily with parents who are writers, consultants, professors, publishers, painters, entrepreneurs, bankers, doctors, actors, executives, etc. 3. We know all our neighbors and our kids are all friends. Our kids play together on the stoop and at the playground. We all help each other and act as an extende ...

I've been watching CNN for hours now. All it is is like: Missing plane mystery, for the 900,000,000th time, Pistorias shot his babe of a girlfriend and threw up in the courtroom, cricket, UN takes Ukraine interim PM to dinner while USA waits for the check. Come on, buildings exploded and burned in both NYC and SF this past week. Nothing on the buildings that exploded and burned in both San Francisco and New York City this past week. It is nice to see a report on the Pope, his personal secretary, how Jews are leaving the Ukraine, and then Islamic Jihadists o a rage in Pakistan, but it seems more like the story is a spin on the real situations at hand. Mystery of Missing plane is not really a mystery of all, just the powers that be do not want the public to know the truth. The United Nations should pack up and leave and take their security council with them because the USA is tired of being dragged into situations in which it was not included in it's inception. Scant reports of infrastructure leaks i ...
Back in 2005, in New York City, one of my mostest favoritest peoples, Anna Ty Bergman, told me that she was taking me to a show, but it had to be a surprise. Otherwise, she feared I might not go. "Oh, no...is there audience participation?" I automatically assumed (inwardly cringing). "Well...kinda? But nothing embarrassing." We headed down - in the rain, I'm remembering - to the East Village and the now-defunct Mo Pitkin's (Rest in Peace, Mo!). And what Anna introduced me to was a blend of improvisation, hip-hop, theatre, music, and genius (well, Geniuses, cause Arthur was there, but that's a different story). Freestyle Love Supreme. In the years between, one of the members (no names, of course) did Alyssa Milano's Teen Steam workout video in my old apartment IN THE HEIGHTS (seriously, no names). And Anthony has actually moved out to San Francisco. We've shared some burritos in the Mission, and he's stolen a crap-load of work from me. Despite his heartless thievery, though, tonight, Freestyle Love S ...

Today in Music History. Mar 8, 1968 Bands like the Grateful Dead, the Jefferson Airplane and Santana owe a great deal of their success to the business acumen of the legendary concert promoter Bill Graham, whose skill and creativity turned San Francisco into a musical Mecca for both fans and performers in the late 1960s. In 1966, Graham opened his own new concert venue, the Fillmore, which quickly became an important stop on the concert itinerary of nearly every great band of the era. Two years later, his psychedelic musical empire went bi-coastal with the opening of the Fillmore East in New York City on March 8, 1968. Opening night at the Fillmore East was typical of the kind of show put together by Graham, who was a pioneer in combining roots music with contemporary rock and roll in a way that became de rigueur at 1960s rock festivals. The bill featured blues guitarist Albert King, folk singer-songwriter Tim Buckley and Janis Joplin's group Big Brother and the Holding Company, who had just begun recordin ...
Of non-Texas Democrats in places like New York City and San Francisco, Wendy Davis is perhaps among the dozen or so most popular figures in political life today. Her fundraising from liberals in liberal bastions bears that out. Ronan Farrow and the rest of the MSNBC crowd love her.
Missing the freeway ride on I 80 , here is some insight on the same. August 22, 1986: The final section of the coast-to-coast I-80 (San Francisco, California, to New York City) is dedicated on the western edge of Salt Lake City, Utah, making I-80 the world's first contiguous freeway to span from the Atlantic to Pacific Ocean and, at the time, the longest contiguous freeway in the world.
Drew Houston Age: 30 Net Worth: $1.2 billion Dropbox cofounder and CEO Drew Houston is Silicon Valley’s newest boy-wonder billionaire. Barely out of his 20s, he joins the 10-figure fortune club this year after his San Francisco-based tech company raised a new round of funding in January at a valuation just under $10 billion. Houston (pronounced like the New York City street, not the Texas city) cofounded Dropbox, a cloud-based file-sharing service, with Arash Ferdowsi in 2007. Houston started tinkering with computers at age 5 and has been involved in startups since high school.
Frequent trims will not make your hair grow faster! (It is kind of common sense) Cutting the ends of your hair doesn't affect the follicles in your scalp, which determine how fast and how much your hair grows, says Paradi Mirmirani, MD, Assistant Professor of dermatology at the University of California, San Francisco. Hair grows an average of a quarter-inch every month—whether or not you cut it. Regular trims might make your hair look a little longer, though. Getting rid of split ends reduces hair breakage, and breakage is what makes hair look thinner at the ends (and shorter), says Matt Fugate, a hairstylist at Sally Hershberger Downtown in New York City. Every eight to 12 weeks, ask your stylist to take off the minimum necessary to eliminate split ends.

Matthew Barney Matthew Barney is an American filmmaker, sculptor, photographer, and drawer.  His most famous works are the Cremaster Cycle.  The Cremaster Cycle works are a series of five films created between 1994 and 2002. He was born in San Francisco in 1967.  His mother was an abstract painter.  He frequently visited her in New York City.  This is where he was introduced to the art scene.  He studied pre-med and art at Yale University.  He moved to New York after he graduated, where he worked as a male model. His Cremaster series explores the process of creation.  They are a “mixture of history, autobiography, and mythology.”  These films feature Matthew Barney himself as a variety of different characters: a satyr, a magician, a ram, Harry Houdini, and more.  He created the films out of order.  He began with Cremaster 4 and finished the series with Cremaster 3.  His films explore the process of gender differentiation before birth.  He goes beyond biological facts and explores alternat ...
These people are moron grade and also Francine McKenzie (Mackensen) does not seem to understand they started a Civil War in Canada, all of which is illegal and immoral. It is how they operate in general around the word. They are not needed here. For them to claim to be in power here is obscene. Total breach of the Social Contract. Mortimer Jerome Adler (December 28, 1902 – June 28, 2001) was an American philosopher, educator, and popular author. As a philosopher he worked within the Aristotelian and Thomistic traditions. He lived for the longest stretches in New York City, Chicago, San Francisco, and San Mateo, California.[1] He worked for Columbia University, the University of Chicago, Encyclopædia Britannica, and Adler's own Institute for Philosophical Research.

"How to improve your foot arch" It’s a dancer’s eternal question: How do I make my feet better? It seems that our ankles and insteps—no matter how supple they are—are never good enough. But while we all might dream of having better arches , few of us are born with them. Jane Rehm, now a dancer with Smuin Ballet in San Francisco, found out early on in her training that her feet were going to be a hurdle. “Pretty much every summer program that rejected me said it was because of my bad feet,” says Rehm. “It was something I knew I was going to have to get past.” The good news is that with the right strengthening exercises, you can improve the appearance of your feet. And if you start young enough, you can even make them more flexible. But there are limits—and excessive stretching can do more damage than good. What Are “Bad” Dance Feet? Dancers want their ankles to be flexible enough to create at least a straight line from their shin to the top of their foot when pointing. Anything less, ...

A few of the many highlights at the PGA breakfast today - AMERICAN HUSTLE: Christain Bale was doubtful when they started production so they shot a couple of days with Bradley Cooper as the main character. Soon Christain committed to the production. Shot in 42 days. Jennifer Lawrence was only available for 3 weeks. Originally, the Mayor was a small character but David Russell rewrote the character and expanded the role. Blue Jasmine: The woody process - Woody comes up with an idea, they raise the money, then he writes the script and pretty much rewrites the script during filming. They were going for a contrast between New York City and a city that more represented the other characters opposite Kate Blanchett and the New York cast. Woody wanted some place warm so they chose San Francisco during the Summer for 10 weeks. The basis for the character was someone that Woody's wife Song Lee actually knew (not Bernie Madoff's wife). Kate Blanchett was the first choice. GRAVITY: Because they did not incorporate a l ...

Nice Work If You Can Get It I never met my two grandfathers; they died long before I was born. But I do have an old photo of my dad's father, Herman Weinberger. It's embedded in clear plastic on a New York City taxi license and dated 1922, the kind of document you still see displayed in cabs today. He came to this country from Hungary--actually it was the Austro-Hungarian Empire then--around 1908. He spoke no English and had little or no formal education. Yiddish, the language of the ghetto and destitute Jews everywhere, that was his tongue. But he was a hard worker, and his purpose in coming here all alone was to save up enough money to bring his wife and their baby girl (who would one day be my Aunt Dorothy) across the sea to America. That was clearly his dream, for them to be together in this strange new place that offered safety and freedom and opportunity. From the picture you can tell he was lively and energetic, a handsome young fellow and a bit of a gambler--someone with a twinkle in his eye who p ...

Did you know? Democrats in New York City, who outnumber Republican voters by more than six to one, had a bittersweet New Year. As the ball dropped in Times Square, the city’s last progressive talk radio station went silent, flipping its format to Spanish music and leaving liberal voices out in the cold in the nation’s top broadcast market. WWRL bade farewell to veteran hosts Ed Schultz, Thom Hartmann, Randi Rhodes, and Alan Colmes, extending a coast-to-coast wave of progressive stations sinking in a sea of listener apathy— especially in big liberal cities. The same day, Clear Channel’s KTLK, the last liberal-dominated talk station in Los Angeles, the nation’s No 2 market, flipped Rhodes, Stephanie Miller, Bill Press, and David Cruz for conservative talkers Glenn Beck, Rush Limbaugh, and Sean Hannity. The company’s KNEW in San Francisco did the same, booting liberal voices for more conservative ones. And talk stations here in Portland, Ore., and up north in Seattle, Wash., said goodbye to their ...

Robert Charles O'Hara Benjamin Robert C. A. Benjamin (1855-1900) a distinguished lawyer and newspaper editor, was born in Saint Kitts. He attended Trinity College, Oxford in Great Britain. In 1876 he found employment in New York City and became a citizen. By 1880 he had read law in Alabama and Tennessee and had been admitted to the Tennessee bar. In 1888 he moved to California and, as the first known black attorney there, established a thriving practice with a prestigious white law firm. He also served as the city editor of the white-owned Los Angeles Sun. Later he moved to San Francisco where, in his practice and as editor of the black San Francisco Sentinel, he championed African-American causes. Considered an "intense race man" he presided over the California conference of the African Methodist Episcopal Zion Church, covering California, Oregon, and Washington.

On a warm afternoon in August 2009, as the mercury hovered near 90°F (32°C), the New York Mets hosted the San Francisco Giants at Citi Field baseball stadium in New York City. The game remained tense into the fourth inning as both teams were unable to break the scoreless deadlock. San Francisco pitcher Matt Cain threw a clumsy 93 mph fastball that slipped just as it left his fingers, sailing right into the helmet of Mets all-star and fan favorite David Wright. Wright collapsed to the ground and lay facedown and completely still. Eerily quiet at first, the crowd watched as trainers tended to the injured player; then people began jeering, which built to a crescendo that shook the stadium. Everyone on the field acknowledged that Cain's errant pitch was a mistake; he didn't intend to hit Wright, and based on the state of the game, Wright's injury conferred very little strategic advantage. Still, Wright's teammates were angry, and it fell to Mets pitcher Johan Santana to exact revenge. Three innings later, S ...

Redeeming deals and discounts via mobile phone just got a little easier for Macy's (NYSE: M) shoppers. Today, Nov. 20, the retailer launched a trial run with Shopkick's new ShopBeacon technology, which will help the company connect with smartphone-wielding shoppers when they enter stores. Here's how it works: When shoppers who have the Shopkick app on their phone enter a Macy's store, they will receive a pop-up reminder to launch the app and receive rewards and coupons. The app will know the customer is in the store thanks to ShopBeacon units, small plastic transmitters which will be mounted on the stores' walls near the entrance. Until now, shoppers had to remember to launch the Shopkick app themselves when visiting stores. ShopBeacon begins trials today in Macy's stores in New York City and San Francisco. There are later plans to launch in more retail locations such as Best Buy, JCPenney, Macy's, Old Navy, and Target, all of which currently offer rewards through the Shopkick app. Shopkick, which boasts ...

Another day in New York City - my last one before heading back home to San Francisco tomorrow. I have loved being here this week. This morning I met Tim Tompkins for an early breakfast at Le Bonbonnierre. Tim is the president of the Times Square Alliance. I love him. Very dear to me. He explained what all the construction going on is about in Times Square. When it's finished it will be a curb-less stone piazza which has been designed by the Snohetta architectural firm. I'll keep the rest of what we talked about to myself. I do love how, shall we say, freewheeling my conversations always are with Tim. I then headed to a 10:30 meeting and saw so many old friends. At noon I met my new friend Tim Teeman and discussed his doing a profile on someone for my next issue. Tim, who worked at the Times of London for 15 years, has written a great new book on Gore Vidal and told me today at lunch that he has a long piece in tomorrow's New York Times in the Style section. It's about how Gore cut all of his fami ...

Fact of the Day: The second Monday in October is designated in the United States as Columbus Day. This day commemorates Christopher Columbus’ first voyage and sighting of the Americas on October 12, 1492. However, Columbus Day as a federal holiday was not officially recognized until 1937. The first recorded ceremony commemorating Columbus in America occurred in 1792, 300 years after his famous first voyage in 1492. To honor Columbus, a ceremony was held in New York, and a monument was dedicated to him in Baltimore, Maryland. In 1892, a statue of Columbus was raised at Columbus Avenue in New York City. Further, at the Columbian Exposition held in Chicago that year, replicas of Columbus’ three ships were displayed. Italian-Americans were key in the creation of Columbus Day. Beginning on October 12, 1866, New York City’s Italian population organized a celebration of the ‘discovery’ of America. This yearly celebration spread to other cities and became known as Columbus Day in San Francisco in 1869.

Quote1 No, no, no. You've got it all wrong. Venom's old news... All played out. These days I prefer to be called-- Toxin! Quote2 -- Toxin src Origins As a child, Edward Allan Charles Brock was raised as a Roman Catholic in suburban San Francisco. His father was cold and unloving towards him because he blamed Eddie for his wife's death during childbirth. Eddie constantly attempted to obtain his father's approval, though even after excelling in school, he only received half-hearted encouragements. Eddie often stole things from other children, just so he could "find" these items to gain their friendship. In his teenage years he gained entrance to ESU's journalism program, fabricating an internship, and he romanced law student Ann Weying.[1] Though exceptional in athletics, Brock switched his major in college to journalism after reading an article on the Watergate scandal. Upon graduating, he moved to New York City, married Ann and as a member of the Associated Press, he obtained a job as a journalist for the ...

WATCH ABC app limits live streaming TV to cable subscribers WATCH ABC app is available in the Google Play Store and brings the promise of offering a “new way to experience ABC – anytime, anywhere.” The catch here is that statement is followed up with an note about how the live streaming is only available in select markets. Not to mention, those lucky enough to be living in one of those markets will also need to be a cable television subscriber to actually do any watching. That being said, there is another side of the app that should work for more users. First things first though, the live streaming is available in the following markets; Philadelphia, New York City, Chicago, Los Angeles, Raleigh-Durham, and San Francisco.

--These people wants right too--not too far from what the *** wanted--- North American Man/Boy Love Association (NAMBLA) is a pedophile and pederasty advocacy organization in the United States that works to abolish age of consent laws criminalizing adult sexual involvement with minors,[2][3] and for the release of all men who have been jailed for sexual contacts with minors that did not involve coercion.[2][4] Some reports state that the group no longer has regular national meetings, and that as of the late 1990s, to avoid local police infiltration, the organization discouraged the formation of local chapters.[4][5] Around 1995, an undercover detective discovered that there were 1,100 people on the rolls.[4] As of 2005, a newspaper report stated that NAMBLA was based in New York and San Francisco, and held an annual gathering in New York City and monthly meetings around the country.[4] NAMBLA has been defended by poet and rights advocate Allen Ginsberg[6][7] and *** rights activist Harry Hay.[8

l GROOVY CLICK UPON PHOTO TO OPEN A WEBSITE ON GOOGLE HIPPIE COMMUNE IMAGES l THE HIPPIE l The hippie (or hippy) subculture was originally a youth movement that arose in the United States during the mid-1960s and spread to other countries around the world. The word 'hippie' came from hipster, and was initially used to describe beatniks who had moved into New York City's Greenwich Village and San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury district. The origins of the terms hip and hep are uncertain, though by the 1940s both had become part of African American jive slang and meant "sophisticated; currently fashionable; fully up-to-date". The Beats adopted the term hip, and early hippies inherited the language and countercultural values of the Beat Generation. Hippies created their own communities, listened to psychedelic rock, embraced the sexual revolution, and some used drugs such as cannabis, LSD, and magic mushrooms to explore altered states of consciousness. In January 1967, the Human Be-In in Golden Gate Park in San ...

These initial works were created by a small group of artists who had fled Europe during World War II to seek refuge in America. Their work dramatically changed the direction of American Art and placed America, and New York City, as the new center of contemporary art.” The show continues through July 27 at 32 Daniel Street, Portsmouth, New Hampshire; the Banks Gallery is open Tuesday through Saturday from noon-5 p.m. For more information, call (603) 431-9799.
Within the last few years, there’s been a noticeable change in the electronic-industrial scene. A shift away from what many claim as broken-down and burned out sounds that have become all too commonplace in club environments. There’s a rebirth and revolution taking place and it’s happening right under your noses and within earshot. It was fostered in New York City and Los Angeles, continues with healthy scenes in San Francisco and spread to Canada, the United Kingdom, Greece, Germany, France and even Russia. It’s also building right here in Detroit.  Surprisingly, this new scene developing is actually built upon the foundations already established in the classic goth, new wave, techno,  and electronic body music (EBM) scenes. With an admiration, respect and fondness for those days-gone-by sounds, new bands are evolving those familiar and formerly fading genres into a fresh and modern counterpart.   But are you aware and taking notice? Here’s why you SHOULD be interested - club patron, DJ and/ ...
“City Of Angels was a very personal song, obviously, about a specific place: Los Angeles. But it could be … well, when I was a younger kid, it was New York City. That was the place where I went to make my dreams come true, at that time to be a painter, an artist. I was in Art School and New York was the place where you went to makes those things come alive. And as I got older, I started studying film and I came out to Los Angeles. But it could be Paris, it could be Shanghai, it could be San Francisco, Palo Alto, anywhere. A place where you go to realize yourself and your dreams.” — Jared Leto about “City of Angels” - notes from VyRT *sonya*

Shakur was born on June 16, 1971, in the East Harlem section of Manhattan in New York City. He was named after Túpac Amaru, a Peruvian revolutionary who led an indigenous uprising against Spain and was subsequently executed. Subsequent to his death, the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department (as well as the official coroner's report, which lists "Crooks" as an aka) released Shakur's name as Lesane Parish Crooks. His mother, Afeni Shakur, and his father, Billy Garland, were active members of the Black Panther Party in New York in the late 1960s and early 1970s. The infant boy was born a month after his mother was acquitted of more than 150 charges of "Conspiracy against the United States Government and New York landmarks" in the New York "Panther 21" court case. Shakur lived from an early age with people who were convicted of serious criminal offences and who were imprisoned. His godfather, Elmer "Geronimo" Pratt, a high ranking Black Panther, was convicted of murdering a school teacher during a 1968 ro ...

May we continue to pray for those who are instructed to bring the Gospel to the Big Cities, like New York City. What happened in New York City, how the twins came down, as if created out of pitch is a mystery no one can explain. Scenes like this is to be expected in the future in other big cities like Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, through earthquakes, fires, & other natural disasters.  Noah, was considered an ALARMIST because, he preached that Rain was to come and flood the earth. No one believed him.

I'm taking a Coursera class on History of Rock & also looking up various singers on Wikipedia. Johnny Mathis studied opera from age 13 through 19 - "a voice teacher named Connie Cox accepted him as her student in exchange for doing work around her house." Johnny Mathis was also a star athlete at George Washington High School in San Francisco. He was a high jumper and a hurdler, and he played on the basketball team. In 1954, he enrolled at the San Francisco State University on an athletic scholarship intending to become an English teacher and a physical education teacher. . At San Francisco State, Mathis had become noteworty as a high jumper, and in 1956, he was asked to try out for the U.S. Olympic Team that would travel to Melbourne, Australia, that fall (November 1956).[7] Mathis had to decide whether to go to the Olympic trials, or to keep his appointment in New York City to make his first recordings. On his father's advice, Mathis opted to embark on his professional singing career in 1956, rather than ...

Today we celebrate both Chris’ 62nd birthday AND 41 years together as husband and wife. I just wanted to say Happy Birthday, Chris. Life with you has always been a great adventure! We have lived in Florida, North Carolina, British Columbia, South Carolina, Alaska, Colorado, New Jersey, and Alabama. When the kids were little we camped in places like Yellowstone NP, Grand Tetons NP, Glacier NP, Telluride, Grand Mesa, Mesa Verde NP, Canyonlands NP, Banff to Jasper, just to name a few. We have spent time in places from New York City to San Francisco. We survived the 7.1 magnitude Earthquake of 1989 in San Francisco and our “near death” rafting experience on the Ocoee River. From just the two of us then us with three children and now 10 amazing grandchildren. You have been the one to encourage me to pursue the Lord with all my heart and helped me to overcome my fears. I love you more today than the day we married, and can’t imagine my life without you. Brenda
Therefore He says: "God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble." James 4:6b When you think of an immovable object, what comes to mind? Perhaps the massive Rock of Gibraltar on the southern tip of the Iberian Peninsula, or the Empire State Building in New York City? How about the Eiffel Tower in Paris or the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco? Some things have the ability to resist human effort; they are completely immovable by us. If created things are immovable, how about the Creator, God Himself? The Bible says that God resists the proud. For a prideful person to attempt to change or move God is as futile as a baby trying to move a building. There is great liberty found in the awareness that God is God and we are not, that God's ways are perfect and that He is unmoved by the prideful or disagreeable protests of man. While God is unmoved by pride, He is moved by humility. To the humble, God gives grace -- as He did to the Apostle Paul who cried out three times concerning his thorn in the flesh ...

On this date in 1930, openly *** politician Harvey Milk was born in Woodmere, New York. Harvey attended school at the New York State College for Teachers in Albany, where he studied math and history. After being discharged from the United States Navy in 1955, Harvey spent subsequent years hiding his sexuality from his family and his work. During this time he was employed as a public school teacher, a stock analyst and a production assistant for Broadway musicals. Harvey didn't become active in politics the age of 40 when he moved from New York City to the city of San Francisco in California. From there he opened a camera shop on Castro Street in the center of the city's growing *** community. In 1975 Harvey narrowly lost his second race as a candidate for the San Francisco Board of Supervisors. In 1977 he easily won a third bid. During the peak of his political career, Harvey supported anti-discrimination bills, established day care centers for working mothers, converted military facilities into lost-cost ...
Everybody loves Woody Allen. Just look at him. His awkward-yet-lovable characters, beautiful cinematography, and Academy Award-winning screenplays have made him a name to remember. And, despite recent projects in Paris and an upcoming film in San Francisco, Allen's love for New York City remains…
For me, great pizza doesn't include deep dish. That's not pizza. It's a casserole for crying out loud. Great pizza is a thin-crust New York slice right out of the oven that you can fold and that keeps its structural integrity despite the generous cheese, sauce, and orange oil on top about to burn the roof of your mouth that you're compelled to bite into anyway. It's a bar pie topped with hot pepper oil at Colony Grill in Stamford, Conn., or Eddie's in New Hyde Park - pizza so thin that it's more like a hot *** with your favorite toppings. It's the best renditions of Long Island's much-overlooked pan-crisped genre: the grandma pie. It's the charred, airy crust of Da Michele that inspires devotion and poetry, and the renditions in San Francisco, Los Angeles, Seattle, and New York City that aspire to and almost achieve that level of greatness. It's South Brooklyn Pizza (the East Village location), Little Vincent's incredibly saucy and bubble-crusted pie in Huntington, Long Island, Bianco's pistachio pie ...
This is what Spouse and I have been saying since we arrived here in the Bay Area.

PartyEarth.com  Electronic Dance Music (or EDM for short) has grown out of American underground raves to become an international phenomenon. Some of the most popular electronic genres, like house and techno, were developed decades ago at illegal warehouse parties in Chicago and Detroit.

Thomas Whaley came to California in 1849 during the Gold Rush. He left New York City, the place of his birth, on January 1, 1849, on the Sutton and arrived 204 days later in San Francisco. He set up a store with George Wardle on Montgomery Street where he sold hardware and woodwork from his family's New York business, Whaley & Pye, and offered mining equipment and utensils on consignment. This young entrepreneur, born on October 5, 1823, came from a Scots-Irish family, which immigrated to Plymouth, Massachusetts in 1722. His great-grandfather, Alexander Whaley, a gunsmith, participated in the Boston Tea Party and the Revolutionary War where he provided flintlock muskets for soldiers and the use of his house on Long Island by General George Washington. Thomas' father, Thomas Whaley, carried on the family gunsmith business, and served in the New York Militia during the War of 1812. He married Rachel Pye, whose father, William, manufactured locks in Brooklyn.      Whaley's business acumen, acquired in par ...

The five best non-touristy New York neighborhoods We can all agree that the problem with travel guides is they advise readers to visit things like Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco and London's Buckingham Palace rather than the real hearts of cities. While every tourist center has its attributes and must be seen at least once or twice, all too often travelers leave their imaginations at home. So in that spirit, here's the insider's guide to New York City - or as you should call it, just New York. If you are staying on the island of Manhattan, ok to call it Manhattan, too. Here are my five picks for most authentic New York neighborhoods, where you can visit without all the tourist hoopla: Walk around the Upper West Side (UWS) starting at... ~puffin
Tim Mcgraw is having trouble choosing sides between the San Francisco 49ers and the Baltimore Ravens in this Sunday's Super Bowl.  On the one hand, his father is from San Francisco, and his uncle still lives in the area. As for the Ravens, Tim's buddy Michael Oher plays on that team.  You'll recall Tim starred in the film The Blind Side that told the story of Michael's rise from the projects to the NFL.      Florida Georgia Line's Brian Kelley and Tyler Hubbard have been running so *** the heels of their hit "Cruise," they barely have time for anything but work.  For Tyler, that means he's not paying much attention to the run-up to this Sunday's Super Bowl.  He says with a laugh, "Yeah, I could barely even tell you who's playing right now."  Brian has been paying attention to the NFL this season, and he thinks the Baltimore Ravens are going to triumph this Sunday over the San Francisco 49ers.      Chris Young is headed to New York City for an appearance on Katie, and you could be in the aud ...

(1/16/2013)... "Today’s events range from the loss of New York City to the British during the American Revolutionary War to the landing of the Marines at Inchon during the Korean War to President George W. Bush naming Osama bin Laden as the prime mover behind the 9-11 Terrorist Attack on the Twin Towers. These are events that we have not previously covered in this blog, as such. But we have written about several other events that occurred on this day. We have looked at the start of a transcontinental passenger system that preceded the building of the Transcontinental Railroad — the Butterfield Overland Mail Stage. These stages were able to carry passengers in relative comfort, if not luxury between Missouri and San Francisco, California starting in 1958. However, the passenger service was a secondary function of these stages; they were primarily designed for carrying the U.S. Mail between the mid-West and Pacific Coast. It would later compete with the Wells-Fargo Stages for both passenger and freight ...

From Judaism To Islam Interview with Maryam Jameelah (formerly Margaret Marcus) - Taken from The Islamic Bulletin, San Francisco, CA 94141-0186 Q: Would you kindly tell us how your interest in Islam began? A: I was Margaret (Peggy) Marcus. As a small child I possessed a keen interest in music and was particularly fond of the classical operas and symphonies considered high culture in the West. Music was my favorite subject in school in which I always earned the highest grades. By sheer chance, I happened to hear Arabic music over the radio which so much pleased me that I was determined to hear more. I would not leave my parents in peace until my father finally took me to the Syrian section in New York City where I bought a stack of Arabic recordings. My parents, relatives and neighbors thought Arabic and its music dreadfully weird and so distressing to their ears that whenever I put on my recordings, they demanded that I close all the doors and windows in my room lest they be disturbed! After I embraced Is ...
For those of you that have been with us from the beginning, I cannot begin to express how big of a moment this is for us. In September of 2011 I attended a CNP (Council for National Policy) meeting in San Francisco, which included a "who's who" of conservative leaders/personalities. One of my good friends told a large group of them I was "the next Rush Limbaugh" and you should've seen the looks on these people's faces like "where does the dude get off?" Then in February 2012 I went to National Religious Broadcasters in Nashville, and almost nobody knew who I was. Yet in no time we're starting off 2013 by live in the market after already going live in Washington, D.C. and Philadelphia. There are shows on hundreds of stations with much bigger names, like Glenn Beck, that don't have affiliates in New York City let alone live. It's amazing to see the doors God has opened with this venture thus far in such a short amount of time. I have been so focused on the details of everything that I'm just now stopping to ...

In 1962, Joplin left again to study at the University of Texas at Austin. There she started performing at folksings — casual musical gatherings where anyone can perform — on campus and at a local club with the Waller Creek Boys, a musical trio she was friends with. With her forceful, gutsy singing style, Joplin amazed many audience members. She was unlike any other white female vocalist at the time — folk icons Joan Baez and Judy Collins were known for their gentle sound. In January 1963, Joplin ditched school to check out the emerging music scene in San Francisco with friend Chet Helms. During this first stint in San Francisco, Joplin struggled to make it as a singer. She played some gigs — even a side stage at the 1963 Monterey Folk Festival — but her career never really got off the ground. She went to New York City for a time, hoping to have better luck there, but her drinking and drug use got in the way. Joplin eventually developed a nasty speed habit and left San Francisco to return home in ...

TOMORROW on ID... a very special episode with Freedy Johnston! You know Freedy from his song "Bad Reputation," and he's worked with people like Butch Vig (Nirvana, Smashing Pumpkins and Garbage) and T-Bone Burnett (Counting Crows, Elvis Costello, Robert Plant and Alison Krauss) - making excellent music all along. Wednesday, December 12th - 7pm PST streaming live at www.lancerradio.org. Tune in. Rock out. After spending his formative years in the small central Kansas town of Kinsley (population 1,457), Freedy Johnston followed the tried and true path of many musicians - he went away to college and then dropped out to chase his dreams. A sign in his hometown had a pair of arrows that pointed in either direction towards New York City and San Francisco, and the former became the place Johnston put down new roots, believing so strongly in his path that he sold part of the family farm to finance his music career. Since then, Johnston has come light years beyond his mythic back-story. His second album, "Can You ...

Why Psychiatry Needs to Add Brain SPECT Imaging, Especially in Complex Cases October 28 2012 | Dr. Mecola One of my own recent interests has been brain plasticity - the ability of your brain to recover, repair, and regain functionality that had previously been lost. This idea conflicts with the conventional view that once you lose brain function, it's permanently lost. Dr. Daniel Amen is a physician and board-certified psychiatrist. He's written five New York Times bestselling books, and is the medical director of the Amen Clinics in Newport Beach in San Francisco, California; Bellevue, Washington; Reston, Virginia; Atlanta, Georgia; and New York City. He's also one of the foremost experts on brain imaging science, which is the topic of discussion in this interview. Brain plasticity features heavily in Dr. Amen's work with SPECT imaging. "About 10 years ago, I wrote a book called Change Your Brain, Change Your Life. It's based on the imaging work that we've done," Dr. Amen says. "We can actually see the d ...
Diego María de la Concepción Juan Nepomuceno Estanislao de la Rivera y Barrientos Acosta y Rodríguez (December 8, 1886 – November 24, 1957) known as Diego Rivera for short, was a prominent Mexican painter and husband of Frida Kahlo (1929–1939 and 1940–1954). His large wall works in fresco helped establish the Mexican Mural Movement in Mexican art. Between 1922 and 1953, Rivera painted murals among others in Mexico City, Chapingo, Cuernavaca, San Francisco, Detroit, and New York City.[1] In 1931, a retrospective exhibition of his works was held at the Museum of Modern Art in New York City. Diego Rivera was born in Guanajuato, Guanajuato, Mexico to a well-to-do family. Rivera was descended from Spanish nobility on his father's side. Diego had a twin brother named Carlos, who died two years after they were born.[2] From the age of ten, Rivera studied art at the Academy of San Carlos in Mexico City. He was sponsored to continue study in Europe by Teodoro A. Dehesa Méndez, the governor of the State o ...
New York City police this morning released the names of two children who were stabbed to death in a vicious attack allegedly by their nanny in the family's Upper West Side apartment. The children's bodies were discovered in a bathtub by their mother. Their nanny was found lying unconscious nearby with apparently self-inflicted stab wounds to her neck, the NYPD said. Lucia Krim, 6, and 2-year-old Leo Krim were killed in the attack. Both children were taken to a local hospital Thursday evening and pronounced dead. The nanny, Yoselyn Ortega, 50, is in critical but stable condition at New York Presbyterian Hospital and has no criminal record, according to ABC station WABC. Ortega worked for the family for about a year. The investigation is ongoing and no charges have been filed at this time. A preliminary police investigation had not yet yielded a possible motive for the deaths. The children's father, Kevin Krim, a CNBC executive, was on a business trip in San Francisco at the time of the murders. He flew hom ...
Obama and the Road Ahead: The Rolling Stone Interview Every so often I see CNN flash the Electoral College map on my TV screen, and some wizard pollster describes a convoluted formula, a running of the tables, in which Romney becomes president without winning Ohio. He probably can't. Shortly after Obama was elected, he provided U.S. auto manufacturers with $62 billion in emergency aid. The Federal Government, in essence, became the principal stockholder of General Motors (it still holds 500 million shares). Romney not only disagreed with Obama's decision but wrote perhaps the dumbest op-ed in American campaign history, titled "Let Detroit Go Bankrupt." Theodore Roosevelt came to the rescue of San Francisco after the Great Earthquake of 1906 and George W. Bush helped rebuild New York City in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, but Romney wanted to pull the plug on the Rust Belt as it struggled to jump-start its troubled economy. Thanks to the Obama bailout, which saved the auto industry, unemployment i ...

The tablet wars are heating up. Apple will likely debut its mini iPad later this month, and now Google sent out invitations for an Android event in New York City on Oct. 29 — the same day that Microsoft will be in San Francisco for the official launch of Windows Phone 8 on devices from Nokia, HTC and Samsung. And Google has scheduled its event event for just three hours before Microsoft’s event, which was announced two weeks ago. Numerous clues have been showing up on the Web indicating that Google will bring out a 32-gigabyte version of its 7-inch Nexus 7 tablet, which is currently available in 8 GB and 16 GB variants. Evidence of a 32 GB version, supposedly priced at about $249 -- the same as the 16 GB model sells for now -- has been spotted all over the world. In fact, many tech watchers think that Google will replace its 16 GB model with the 32 GB version.
