Adonis Syndrome

Announcement
Images: 

One of the most important moral concepts to the Greeks was the fear of committing hubris, which included rape and was a high crime in the city-state of Athens. Although pride and vanity were not considered sins, the Greeks emphasized moderation. Pride became hubris when it went to extremes, like any other vice. The same was thought of eating and other excessive actions that were considered improper. Ancient Greeks placed the importance of athletics and intellect equally with competitions included both. The lack of ethics can become all-consuming or hurtful to others.

Bronx Puerto Rican Day Parade

Attraction
Images: 

The Bronx 27th Annual Puerto Rican Day Parade and Latino pride was on display Sunday on the Grand Concourse. But Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. reportedly wanted nothing to do with this historic event.

Was it that he wasn't in the mood to party because The Bronx continues to have the highest unemployment rate compared to any other county in New York, according to local and national data?

City Island Images asked his press secretary and also his communications director if President Diaz Jr. could tell us why and when this disturbing trend will ever end? However, the response we received 20 hours later was we're working hard to change that! No further details from the borough president's office.

Meanwhile, the parade started back in 1987 with around a dozen groups marching that year. Today's event, featured more than one hundred local, national and international organizations, which marched from 190th Street and Grand Concourse to Van Cortlandt Avenue East for a post-parade festival. Here is more from NY1 and News 12 The Bronx.
