DETECTING BREAST CANCER

Idea

You can do it in the shower. You can also do it while you're getting ready for bed. Just make sure you do it at least once a month. Especially try starting it during this breast cancer awareness month.

First of all, experts stress to get familiar with your breasts. Look for lumps, changes in size, shape or feel, and to see if there is any fluid.

Every woman should intimately know her breasts and surrounding areas so she can be aware of changes, according to doctors representing the American Cancer Society.

If you live or work in the Bronx, The Borough President wants to hear from you. The office of Bronx Borough President Ruben Diaz Jr. is conducting a “well being” survey, which aims to hear from Bronx residents and those who work in our borough on a variety of topics important to the Bronx.

The survey takes a few minutes, and the office is giving away a prize to one individual who completes the survey.

You can take the survey, in English, at this link:

FDNY DISCRIMINATION

News

FDNY systematically discriminates against minority applicants, according to a Judge who cites racist practices.
The court's conclusion is that that the Vulcan Society of black firefighters had proven its claim and set the stage for changes in the Fire Dept.

As a result, the judge has credited the NYCs recent efforts to sign up record numbers of minority recruits for the upcoming firefighter exam. Fire officials said 48% of those who applied for the next test are people of color - almost double the 26% who took the last test in 2007.
