CIMAGES - Turning a News Leaf

Solution

We’ve decided that there is way too much bad news being covered, so we're turning over a news leaf. From now on we will make every effort to start covering more positive news and to offer our readers a balance. We are not proposing to cover only good news and nothing else. What we will make every effort to do is to try and balance our coverage with inspirational news, feel good stories and water cooler content.

DO NOT FEAR A BRONX CHEER

News

Bronx Cheer is used tongue in cheek and sarcastically because it is not a cheer. It is used to show disapproval. The term originated as a reference to the sound used by some baseball fanatics attending games at Yankee Stadium, which is located in the Bronx, New York City.

It used to be that making a Bronx cheer was to make a noise signifying silliness. It was made by sticking out the tongue between the lips and blowing to make a sound reminiscent of flatulence.

Bronx Dominican Parade

Attraction

The Grand Concourse featured the sounds of Quisqueya today. Situated in the heart of the fastest growing Dominican community in New York City, the West Bronx parade rivals the Midtown-Manhattan celebration in excitement and attendance with its more home town carnival atmosphere. Saludos, Mama Juana!

The merengue and bachata both started at 12 noon and the parade ran south on the Grand Concourse Blvd from E. Tremont Ave to E. 167th Street, steps away from Yankee Stadium.

We're still having a heatwave, so dress for coolness. Wear light tops and shorts. Now, time to go outside... Take a deep breath and be cool. The good news is that the hot, humid triple-digit scorcher, which taxed ConEd's electrical grid and made life uncomfortable is expected to simmer down, but forecasters say the Southeast and Mid-Atlantic will still be under that darn heat dome, which refuses to die. The National Weather Service says temperatures will begin to ease, but are expected remain in the 90s.
