Comment on kachumber cooler by Michelle

I worked for Floyd at Tabla when it opened in 1999. It was my first job waiting tables in New York City. He was the MOST wonderful person – joyous, authentic, thoughtful and generous. The fact that he was an exceptional chef was just an added bonus. No one has influenced my love of food and fine dining more than Floyd Cardoz. His food was as exquisite as his heart was big. I love that you honored him here and in doing so, gave me another moment to think of him and how much I adored him.

Luxury Lofts Are Coming To Tribeca’s 67 Vestry Street

Artists lofts are returning to Tribeca, even if the artist’s aren’t. Tribeca has certainly changed since its heyday as an offbeat, bohemian hangout during the 1970s, filled with repurposed warehouses where creative types lived in huge, drafty lofts with cheap rent. One of those buildings was 67 Vestry Street, where Andy Warhol sometimes plied his […]

‘Three Men and a Baby’ Remake Will Star Zac Efron (But Probably Not as the Baby)

In early 2018, we heard that a Three Men and a Baby remake was in the works at Disney+. Now that movie has found one of its lead actors in a former Disney star: Zac Efron, who broke out thanks to his work in the High School Musical movies, will play one of the titular men in the new version. At least we think that’s who he’s playing. I mean, if they wanted to, the folks at Disney could do some sort of wild digital de-aging and have him play the baby instead. Would that be super weird and remind...

Trump To Vance: I Would Prefer A Civil, Not Criminal Subpoena

Attorneys for President Trump hit back in a Monday court filing at suggestions that the President is under investigation for fraud, saying that the allegations only meet the bar for civil wrongdoing. “Many of the allegations in the District Attorney’s extraneous sources that form the basis of his invitation to imagine an investigation broad enough to justify this subpoena, relate to civil, not criminal, conduct,” attorneys for the President wrote in a footnote as part of a broader attempt to ...

PROVIDENCE, R.I. (AP) — Vilified, threatened with violence and in some cases burned out, dozens of state and local public health officials around the country have resigned or have been fired amid the coronavirus outbreak, a testament to how politically combustible masks, lockdowns and infection data have become.

Creators need better community tools. Circle wants to fill the gap

Entrepreneurial creators have to do a lot with limited time. They need to, well, create, but then they also need to build their marketing funnels, convert users to their paid products, and manage business operations. Yet, perhaps the most important task they face is keeping their existing fans engaged, since ultimately, that engagement ties directly to the health of their brand long-term. Social tools are abysmal on platforms like YouTube and Instagram, particularly when it comes to creators own...

New York City's MTA Urges Apple to Further Protect Riders During Pandemic

In a letter obtained by The Associated Press, New York City's transit agency MTA has encouraged Apple to accelerate the deployment of technology-based solutions to further protect users amid the global health crisis.

Mexico's coronavirus outbreak is now the third worst in the world

The U.S., by a wide margin, leads the globe in COVID-19 cases. But its neighbor to the south has its own alarming spike, making it the third worst outbreak in the world.Mexico has had 52,000 confirmed coronavirus deaths, The New York Times reported Monday. A widespread distrust of hospitals has made the pandemic even deadlier, as Mexicans are reportedly frequently refusing to seek treatment until their COVID-19 symptoms have worsened past the point of possible recovery, or not at all.

Election integrity will be put to the test in California this November

New York City tried to make voting easier, and the result was chaos. City elections officials were overwhelmed with a flood of vote-by-mail ballots, more than 400,000, or ten times the usual number in a primary. Many ballot envelopes came in without the required postmarks. That problem may have been caused by processing errors at the post office. The envelopes provided to voters to return their ballots were postage-paid, which may have led to incorrect handling and missing postmarks. Late Monday...
