RIP Roger Moore

Problem

He was my favorite 007. Roger Moore was an excellent James Bond. I have the pleasure of interviewing Sir Roger Moore while working as a news producer for NBC. The 89 year old actor passed away following a short battle with cancer. https://youtu.be/E-IDfoZuQLM?list=PLD4A8sYoLfVckUYSDMdFUeMSJO0DCIGPt

However, Roger Moore was the spy who did it best. https://youtu.be/Wy-c8aAntWA

Concert Carnage

News

At least 19 people were killed and dozens others seriously injured as a result of a bomb towards the end of an Ariana Grande pop concert in Manchester, England.

Counterterrorist police last night confirmed that they were treating it as a “possible terrorist incident” and bomb disposal units were at the venue, the Manchester Arena.

Eyewitnesses described one or two loud bangs around 10.40 pm, minutes after the end of a performance by Ariana Grande, the American singer.

Brotherly Love?

Attraction

According to recently released research findings, some women look for men who remind them of their brothers. As creepy as this may sound, the Northumbria University study found that some were attracted to their siblings.

These findings weren't true of every woman but some partners did show a resemblance to the women's brothers.

The Coz Trial

News

Bill Cosby's trial gets underway today. Jury selection starts in Pennsylvania in the aggravated indecent assault case against the 79-year-old iconic comedian and television star. Cosby Arrives for Jury Selection https://youtu.be/fAA8yo7S6ro

Although scores of women have come forward recently to allege that Cosby is a sexual predator, the case essentially is all about a he said she said dispute over what happened one night at Cosby’s estate.

Brother Can You Spare?

Solution

Forget that old line which was coined in 1929, when the average unemployment in the US was 3.2%. In 1930, after an unprecedented stock market crash devastated the U.S. economy, the average unemployment was 8.9%.

By 1932, when Bing Crosby's version of "Brother, Can You Spare A Dime?" was released, the unemployment had soared to 24.1%. The height of the Great Depression had arrived, and unfortunately, it was still just the beginning. This may well have been the first protest song. https://youtu.be/eih67rlGNhU?list=RDeih67rlGNhU

NYC Island Getaways

Attraction

It's not too early to plan summer outings in New York. In fact, most of Gotham's most popular summer events and special warm-weather attractions like Governors Island are now open for the 2017 season.

Speaking of islands, we can't think of a better getaway than taking a ferry to an oasis off New York Harbor or riding a boat down the East River. Since summer is the best season for the outdoors, we've taken the liberty to list three can't-miss islands. These are our favorites.

City Island https://cityislandchamber.org/

Public Nuisance

Problem

The weather is slowly improving and some windows are bringing in the fresh air, so it is time to review a law.

I live in a relatively quiet and peaceful neighborhood, considering it is NYC. City Island consists of 230 acres, surrounded by the Long Island Sound and Eastchester Bay. Although a bridge connects this maritime oasis to The Bronx, its tranquility is guarded by New York City’s largest, Pelham Bay Park.

Time for Reckoning

Idea

We the people do not need Batman and Robin for this alleged criminal investigation of Russian interference in our democratic process. https://youtu.be/6qG9axae8eE NO NEED FOR THE 'I' WORD NECESSARY YET

Nor do we need a regular Joe retired politician who was Al Gore’s running mate as the new FBI Director. President Trump is said to be leaning toward naming former Connecticut senator Joseph Lieberman to replace James Comey. https://youtu.be/Sn-u1s4mKCo http://www.4president.us/websites/2000/gore2000website.htm
