"We all know that Trump is a bully. But I say, I’m a New Yorker, and I know how to deal with bullies. I did it all the time. I’m not afraid of Trump and he knows it."

Said Mike Bloomberg, quoted in "Wounded but defiant, Bloomberg promises to keep fighting."I don't think any of the Democratic candidates are afraid of Trump. They all say he's a bully and offer to stand up to him. The question isn't whether they're afraid, but whether they are capable of fighting to a win. Bloomberg's real answer on that question is that he's got all that money. And that he's more capable than the other finalists not because he's a fierce debater, but because he's moderate and n...

Amy Nobile founded Love, Amy in April 2019 to help people find love on dating apps after meeting who she calls "the love of her life" on Bumble post-divorce. Nobile conducts photoshoots for dating app profiles, holds sexting consultations, and "ghost banters" with clients' matches.  Less than a year in, Nobile has built a full-fledged business from word-of-mouth, transforming a side-hustle into a service that charges clients $5,000 for three months. But Nobile insists she's more "mirror" than ...

US LGBTQ and Pride events in 2020

Let’s get one thing straight — LGBTQ people know how to throw one hell of a party, and in the United States, there’s no shortage of creativity when it comes to curating a queer shindig. From ski-slope soirees to fetish-themed festivals, the only thing more difficult than choosing which events to attend in 2020 is choosing who to vote for in the Democratic primary. Luckily, choosing from this list of epic LGBTQ gatherings is a win-win situation. Editor’s note: Queer culture doesn’t begin and e...

Going Viral Helped Catapult Roddy Ricch and ‘The Box’ to No. 1 — But There’s More to the Story

It’s barely two months into 2020, but it’s already been a big year for rapper Roddy Ricch. The 21-year-old Compton artist has claimed the No. 1 spot on the Billboard Top 100 for the past five weeks with his viral earworm of a rap song, “The Box,” from his debut album Please Excuse Me for Being Antisocial, which is the longest-running No. 1 debut rap album to be on the Billboard 200 in nearly two decades since 50 Cent’s Get Rich or Die Tryin’ in 2003.

Report: Microsoft’s Surface Book 3 will arrive this spring

Tech Jobs For All Who Want Them

The tech sector is the fastest growing sector of the economy in NYC and around the US and around the world. The tech sector offers high paying jobs and a growing number of them. But, as we all know, the tech sector lacks the gender and racial diversity that would allow everyone to benefit from this growing sector of the economy. Most of the studies that have looked at the lack of diversity point to a skills gap standing in the way. So last year Tech:NYC (where I am co-chair) and a few larg...

Friends-themed brunch in NYC

It seemed like the cast of Friends’ only responsibility on the show was crushing hangout sessions. Kicking back in Central Perk on a casual Wednesday afternoon, hanging all day in an apartment that, in real-life Manhattan prices, would probably cost about $3 million. The only place we didn’t see them hanging out was at Sunday brunch. And yet, that’s the Friends-themed experience coming to New York City this summer. On June 14, at a location to be announced later, The Brunch Club is sponsoring...

Equal Ventures raises debut $56M fund to double down on thesis-driven seed

There has been a proliferation of venture capital the past few years, as funds go up and down the stack looking for unique and high-return opportunities in the startup landscape. Large funds are increasingly investing in small rounds, which has forced seed investors to answer much more carefully why they should exist in the first place at their stage. The paradox of 2020 VC is that the largest funds are doing the smallest rounds For Richard Kerby and Rick Zullo, the answer is that seed inv...

NYC bread/baking supply stores? Submitted by mburns87 on February 10, 2020 - 7:46pm. Hey, baking pals!I'm getting into some more involved soaker breads, and I'm curious if anyone knows of a baking supply store in Manhattan that reliably carries things like rye chops and rye berries, and other bread-oriented stuff. I've checked out a couple Whole Foods locations and they were at a loss to tell me where I could pick up rye chops.Worst case scenario I can turn to Amazon, but it would b...

The Coronavirus Outbreak Should Bring Out the Best in Humanity

Pandemics are perversely democratic. They’re nasty, lethal and sneaky, but they don’t discriminate. No matter your age, ethnicity, religion, gender, or nation, you’re a part of the pathogenic constituency. That shared vulnerability, and the resulting human collectivism—a universal response to a universal threat—is newly and vividly evident in the face of the now-global outbreak of the novel coronavirus known as 2019-nCoV. As of writing, there have been over 30,000 diagnosed cases and over 6...
