An usher at NYC's Madison Square Garden on reopening at limited capacity: 'I wish it felt safer'

New York City's Madison Square Garden. Thomas Pallini/Business Insider Nancy (not her real name) is 57 years old and works as an usher at Madison Square Garden in NYC.  As stadiums reopened at limited capacity Tuesday, she's worried about social distancing and masking. She's immunocompromised, and a big part of her job involves very hands-on interaction with guests.  This is her story, as told to freelance writer Meira Gebel.

4 Tips for Black Business Owners Looking to Make the Most of the Holiday Season

Dahlias

Having inherited the dahlia bed from the Tinker (my dad, for any that haven’t met him here before) and the wonders he worked on it during his last two years living here with us, we have always felt an affinity with this little corner of the Tinker's Cott garden. I grew up with dahlias, but with no particular love for them until my dad started planting them here, and now it’s safe to say we are addicted. It's always a bit nerve-wracking because we don't lift the tubers in the winter. They stay p...

Spring Inklings

With the greenhouse out there, bandaged to within an inch of its life and under siege from Storm Ciara, I’m sitting indoors and sending good vibes to my sweet peas and hoping they don’t all end up in Wales. My poor old greenhouse, now heading into its seventh year. We have fond memories of the day Bookhound dug out the ground and he and the Tinker raised it...all in a freezing cold, biting wind... From that to this...it was very pleasing One of the joys of winter gardening is thinking ah...

Stream: The Garden, ‘Clench to Stay Awake’

Iconoclastic brother duo the Garden have reached into their sonic toolshed of sharp, rusty objects on the new song “Clench to Stay Awake.” It’s an abrasion waiting to happen — as well as the lead track on twins Wyatt and Fletcher Shears’ fourth album, “Kiss My Super Bowl Ring,” coming out March 13 via Epitaph Records. The song, which the duo says is based on their mysterious health issues over the years, sandwiches a solid minute of punk fury in between a deadpan one-minute intro and equally imp...

Kuemper and Raanta Leading the Way for Coyotes

Tell your friends. Tell your families. Tell your neighbors. Tell your co-workers. The Arizona Coyotes are 5-0-1 in their last six games, and they might be the hottest team in the league. These aren’t your father’s Coyotes – this team is for real. Coyotes Week in Review After taking care of the Jets on Oct. 15, the Coyotes left Winnipeg and headed to Arizona (not for the first time, mind you), where they kicked off a two-game homestand on Thursday evening against the Nashville Preda...

Watch Beck And Chris Martin Sing “Loser” At Hammer Museum’s Gala In The Garden

Coldplay frontman Chris Martin is 42 years old. So when Beck released his slawjawed qusi-rap anthem "Loser" in 1993, Martin was 16. And Martin was 17 when "Loser" went into wide release and conquered the world, reaching a peak of #15 on the singles chart in Martin's native UK. So that means Chris … More »

A Garden From a Hundred Packets of Seed ~ James Fenton

I'm sitting here at my desk staring out at this... B The greenhouse swaddled and bandaged up in a valiant attempt to protect it from Storm Erik and any more Big Freezes, us having been a little too late to defend against the ravages of Storm Whatever-The-Last-One-Was. The door shunted ajar and the gale took out several of the back windows, now repaired. It's not so much the repairing, nuisance though it is, it's more the equation of number of pieces of glass x distance travelled across the gra...

Fox News Rejects Ad For Oscar-Nominated Anti-Nazi Documentary, Calling It “Inappropriate”

The documentary focuses on a 1939 pro-Nazi rally in New York and warns that fascism could happen here. The movie – A Night At The Garden – is competing in the documentary category and the ad for it – a 30-second spot was called “It Can Happen Here.” Producers had wanted to buy a spot on the Sean Hannity Show. – The Hollywood Reporter

LeBron James to Dwyane Wade: 'It was either ending (in Los Angeles) or at The Garden'

The focus on Monday wasn’t on the game. It was on the two NBA greats facing off one last time before Wade retires at the end of the season, as it should have been. Once the game ended, Wade and James embraced instantly.

Random plant events: Leuchtenbergia principis, Zamia furfuracea

Everything was going fine, and then it was time to dig up the Cannas and bring them in for the winter. And you've seen the Cannas.1 As of 18 October, direct-weighing on a bathroom scale has given us the approximate figure of 787 lb. (357 kg) of Canna rhizomes brought inside for the winter, and we haven't even dug them all up yet.2 My best guess is that another 200-300 lb. (91-136 kg) remain to [Author: mr_subjunctive]

Rangers Should Have Targets This Summer

The Rangers are not on John Tavares’ short list of teams in his career-altering free agency decision this July, but that does not mean their chances of securing another All-Star talent are over. New York’s three first-round draft selections this past June, along with key players returning from injury to begin the 2018-19 season, have the future looking brighter than ever. With the proposed roster rebuild at The Garden in full swing, many believe that this July will be stagnant for the Blueshirts...

Rangers Should Get Tavares at Any Cost

The 2018 NHL Draft is less than four days away, which means that the rebuild is entering a new developmental stage in the Big Apple. New York Rangers general manager Jeff Gorton has stockpiled seven draft picks in the first three rounds, including three in round one. With the spotlight shining brighter than it has in over a decade, New York’s management is now in unfamiliar territory. Will they decide to use all 10 draft picks, or will they string together a franchise-altering package deal to la...

Hiding

Genesis 3:8-15   “I heard the sound of you in the garden, and I was afraid… and I hid myself.”   A reading like the one we have this morning from Genesis seems like a no-brainer. There are half a dozen or more sermons begging to be plucked out of this short reading, and that is what makes it so challenging. Not that we should choose the correct one, but that we should open ourselves up to something new in a book that is at once as comfortable as an old tee-shirt and yet always new. If it’s ...

Of all the goaltenders who have played for the New York Rangers in their 90-year history, six are members of the Hockey Hall of Fame, two are in the United States Hockey Hall of Fame, and one, Henrik Lundqvist, is well on his way to hockey immortality.

Mayflowers, Preserving Our Native Plants and A New Book Arrives Just In Time

A new book arrives for gardeners interested in native plants - just in time for spring (if spring ever arrives!) If you're like me, you are waiting and waiting for the gardening season to begin. Here in New England spring is a bit late arriving, which on one hand is helpful for procrastinators like me, but also worrysome as most of us know that it will probably swing from cold, snowy weather and chilly, near-freezing temperatures to hot and humid weather practically overnight! But it is a...

The Greenhouse ...

The Greenhouse is in a bit of a mess if I'm honest. A tough winter, a few leaks, various storm-damaged panes of glass replaced, but the minute we have a spell of warm fine weather I will rally the troops and we will be on the case. It needs emptying, a good scrub inside and out, rake the gravel back into place and get the benches scrubbed and  then I can think about sowing some seeds. I have been a martyr to a few things through the winter though. There has been a lot of swaddling in horticult...
