Mar 25, 1911
Triangle Shirtwaist Fire in NYC. In one of the darkest moments of America's industrial history, the Triangle Shirtwaist Company factory in New York City burns down, killing 145 workers, on this day in 1911. The tragedy led to the development of a series of laws and regulations that better protected the safety of factory workers.

As a former executive producer for Univision, I keep wondering what the ultimate game plan is following the company's recent purchases.

Univision was once known as SIN and changed its name to portray one vision. It has now purchased Gawker after also buying The Onion. What is the new vision for the one-time leader in Spanish-language media?

Univision buys Gawker Media for $135 million http://politi.co/2aWpzlg

Univision Makes Winning Bid for Gawker at Bankruptcy Auction http://www.wired.com/2016/08/univision-makes-winning-bid-gawker-bankrupt...



The answer is not so clear as we are taken on an emotional roller coaster of scenarios.

The Boston Marathon terrorist attacks are the first of it's kind to be captured in a social media world. Images, videos and digital pictures taken by professional as well as amateur photographers are now available in abundance, but still no arrests have been made.

A few days after these bombings, investigators are yet to unravel how a couple of explosions were able to kill three and injure 170.

Reshaping Politics


Our very own Bronx Congressional US Representative Joe Crowley D-NY could become on a total Weiner roll.

There are many possibilities flying around about Rep. Anthony (Looks like Beavis and acts like Butt-Head) Weiner. He can either resign, take a leave, face a primary challenge, or get redistricted out of existence. US Congressman Crowley has now emerged into this political mix.

Whitesone Multiplex Cinemas May Stop Showing Films


It was too good to last, if you didn't mind the probability of getting harassed by teenagers, while enjoying a deal on Tuesdays, when $6 movie tickets bought you the most recent film releases. But this Bronx theater has been sold $30M, making it one of the largest recent sales in The Bronx. Whitestone Multiplex Cinemas is located at 2505 Bruckner Boulevard



This may become an international tour of US global enemies. Where the infamous leaker stops, perhaps nobody knows.

The former contractor for the U.S. National Security Agency, charged by the United States with espionage has left Hong Kong with his final destination not known, because an official request for his arrest did not comply with the law, according to the Hong Kong government.

Edward Snowden left for Moscow on Sunday, but his final destination may be Cuba, Venezuela, Iceland or Ecuador. This is bound to infuriate Washington, wherever he ends up.

RIP Gregg Allman


Could the death of Gregg Allman also be called the end of pure Southern Rock? The American keyboard and lead singer for The Allman Brothers Band died at age 69. It all started in Nashville, Tennessee and when he was nine he once said he fell heads over heels with music.

Cher, Melissa Etheridge, Keith Urban, and more remember Gregg Allman. http://bit.ly/2r7Og1q
