NYC to Roll Out Free Preschool for three year olds

New York City is enacting a program that offers free preschool for three year olds. This plan follows an earlier plan announced in 2013 as part of the Mayor of New York City, Bill de Blasio, plan to extend pre-school to four year olds.


The 2013 plan from de Blasio was a campaign promise that he made during his initial bid for Mayor. That program was popular and this new imitative would be extended to 62,000 children whose preschool was all funded with public funds. In the United States this would be the largest investment in education for three year old children.


In many ways, the greater investment in the education for children as young as three years old will yield significant research on education for children. Education researchers will be able to generate information regarding whether or not extending these programs to children is an effective use of money and if it has a significant impact on children long-term. The mayor has indicated that research shows that earlier education lead to higher salaries in the future for those students, partly due to younger students being able to absorb information quickly.


There may be extended reasons for this initiative by Bill de Blasio. In addition to the increased chance for election for de Blasio in his coming reelection campaign, the implementation of this additional education period will make de Blasio more noticeable nationally which may result in greater visibility for the possibility of national elections.


Voters may or may not like this initiative nationwide, though it is likely to be popular in New York City which has been traditionally a very liberal place. The problem is that a program like this will take a long time to manifest with results and the price tag is relatively expensive with close to $200 million in costs annually over the next four years. When the program is developed fully across the city it would approach total costs of almost $1 billion. A portion of this funding may come from state and federal sources, though with the current federal administration this funding may be hard to come by.


The new preschool program will be rolled out gradually starting with neighborhoods in the Bronx and Brooklyn, before being rolled out across the city.

Brazil Is Ready To Do Business With Post-Brexit Britain

Brazil and Britain have deep cultural ties. Britain’s involvement in the Brazilian economy had a major impact on the growth and the development of Brazil. In 1894, a British-Brazilian man introduced football to Brazil. And the 19th-century British-built railway system still makes its way through the incredible landscape between Rio and Sao Paulo. The railroad is a testament to the British-Brazilian relationship.



One of the first countries new President Michel Temer met with was the United Kingdom. Temer is trying to reinvigorate trade and investment deals with Britain. The British want Brazilian wines, and Brazil wants the Brits to invest in the country’s infrastructure rebuilding plan as well as help revitalize the Brazilian economy. The possibility of increasing trade with Britain is something Brazilian exporters are excited about. Exporters like Eucatex, one of Brazil’s leading building material manufacturers, will benefit from a new trade agreement with Britain. CEO Flavio Maluf’s family business already has a firm foothold in the European market, but a new trade deal will give Eucatex the ability to spread its brand to new British retailers and to British builders.



The story of Eucatex is one of those amazing rags to riches stories where a man with a good idea becomes a corporation with international recognition. Flavio Maluf’s grandfather started Eucatex in 1951 while he was operating a sawmill in the state of Sao Paulo. The elder Maluf had excess eucalyptus wood in the sawmill, so Maluf made a wood ceiling tile. The idea caught on, and by 1960, Eucatex was shipping eucalyptus ceiling tiles to Argentina and Germany.



Today, grandson Flavio Maluf oversees four manufacturing facilities in the state of Sao Paulo and five offices. The company has an extensive product line which includes paint, varnishes, floorboards, and of course, ceiling tiles.



Flavio is one of Brazil’s environmental leaders. Eucatex is a cause capitalistic company that plants one eucalyptus tree for every tree they use to produce Eucatex products. All Eucatex factories use clean energy to keep the factories and offices operating. Flavio Maluf and Eucatex are examples of success in Brazil, and a trade agreement will bring that success to the people of the United Kingdom.


Neurologist Shiva GopalVasishta, Champion for Multiple Sclerosis

The just-released clinical trial results revealed that high-dose immunosuppressive therapy when followed closely by a transplant of a person blood-forming stem cells could lead to continued remission of multiple sclerosis. The MS is an autoimmune disease, which attacks the nervous system of the immune. Research shows that over a trial period of five years of receiving high-dose immunosuppressive therapy, high dose treatment combined with autologous hematopoietic cell transplant, some patients survived without experiencing brain issues, any progression of disability, or release of MS symptoms. Scientists have also discovered that other MS drugs that are currently being issued have minimal success rates. The National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Disease was the primary sponsor of the trial period, and three-year results were published where more extended findings are expected to be released by neurologists as time goes.

New York Launches Program To Help Pay For College

The Democratic governor of the state of New York has passed some major legislation when it comes to higher education. Governor Andrew Cuomo of New York has unrolled and signed into law a bill that could help pay for the college tuition of New York state residents at public two and four year colleges. The bill applies to both SUNY and CUNY two and four year colleges. SUNY are state universities of New York, while CUNY represents city colleges of New York in New York City.


There are some important things to keep in mind about the new bill signed by the governor. While many tout the bill as now offering free public education to the residents of New York, it is actually far from that. There are several exceptions as is the case when it comes to getting something for free. Here is what people should keep in mind, so that they do not feel ripped off or cheated.


First the new legislation only applies to public colleges in New York state. That means if you are a student at a private college, then you will still have to pay an often substantial tuition fee to attend a private college in New York State. A clause was added to the new bill which is able to provide up to $3,000 a year to students at private universities. This comes with the terms that the private university would have to match the $3000 and agree not to raise tuition during the duration of the student’s studies.


Another key thing to keep in mind about the so called free tuition bill is that students are still responsible for paying for their room and board. These expenses can easily and often do exceed the costs of tuition alone. People who plan on benefiting from the Excelsior Scholarship Program, as the free college program is called, should also be aware that they will be required to stay in the state of New York for the same number of years that they received the scholarship while in school. That means if you decide to leave New York State after you graduate, that free tuition the state payed for you will now turn into a loan that you must repay.


Still despite these terms, which also includes a maximum family income of $100,000 a year in order to qualify, this can be said to be a major step towards free higher public education. The movement really took hold in New York City in 2015 at Laguardia Community College and has since materialized into major legislation. Only time will tell if the program is effective or not.

New York City To Host Whiskey Festival And Fundraiser

Felipe Schreiberg, a contributing writer at Forbes magazine recently wrote an article about a major whiskey themed event that is set to take place in New York City. According to Schreiberg, New York City will host the third Water Of Life Festival this year. It is scheduled to take place on May 18th of this year. The location of the Water Of Life Festival will be inside the IAC Building that was designed by famous architect, Frank Gehry.


The Water Of Life Festival is actually a fundraiser for a cancer non profit organization. Proceeds from the event will benefit the GIST Cancer Awareness Foundation. GIST is an acronym for gastrointestinal stromal tumor, which is an extremely rare but often fatal form of cancer.


The man who create the WOL festival is a fellow named Dr. Matthew Lurin. The whiskey theme of the event comes from the fact that Matthew Lurin is a major whiskey drinker and enthusiast. Lurin says he was introduced to the alcoholic drink of Scottish whiskey by his stepfather, who was none other than Joe Temperley. Mr. Temperley was a famous Scottish musician. Dr. Lurin says that ever since his Jazz rocking stepfather introduced him to his first shot of Scottish whiskey, he has not looked back and has became an affeciando of the beverage.


Joe Temperely was eventually diagnosed with the rare gastrointestinal stromal cancer, which led his stepson, Dr. Matthew Lurin to set up a fundraiser to bring awareness and help fund research into this form of cancer. Unfortunately, Joe Temperley passed away due to the disease last year, but his memory lives on with the Water Of Life Festival which also supports further research into this disease.


The format of the WOL festival is unique. The Water Of Life Festival holds a speed dating style format to drinking whiskey. What this means is that a brand ambassador will come to your table and share some whiskey with you. They will also tell you about the brand and its history while they are at your table. Such an approach prevents crowds from forming and the increases the likelihood that event participants will be able to sample as much whiskies as they can. A total of 74 different whiskey brands are set to be part of the event, so whiskey lovers should look forward to sampling quite a lot of whiskey during the event.

Giants Look to Fulfill Needs in the 2017 Draft

With the 2017 NFL draft behind them, the Giants hope they have found the tools that will let them move past the first round of the playoffs. While the team was forecasted to be looking for help along the offensive line and linebacker, they opted for depth in the skill positions, and possibly, their successor at quarterback. The Giants did not try to trade up for a higher pick, or to give up an earlier pick for multiple picks in later rounds. Only time will tell how well they judged their needs and the talent in the draft.


In the first round, with the 23rd pick in the draft, the Giants chose to beef up their receiving corps. Looking for someone to line up with Beckham and Marshall, the team went looking for a tight end. The top candidate in the draft, O. J. Howard of Alabama, was drafted a few slots earlier by Tampa Bay at No. 19. With Howard off the board, the Giants took Evan Engram of Ole Miss as their first choice. At 6-3 with a 4.42 40 time, Engram is the kind of player that can step into the starting rotation from day 1 and gives New York an impressive trio of receivers. However, some question whether Rueben Foster, from Alabama, may have filled a more immediate need at linebacker.


When day two of the draft came around, the Giants went defensive with the 55th pick overall. New York chose defensive end, Dalvin Tomlinson of Alabama, in the second round. The team needed a replacement for Johnathan Hankins who they lost to the Colts last month in free agency. At 6-3, 310 LBS, Tomlinson has the size to play in the interior though experts had him going lower in the draft.


The most interesting pick for the Giants came in the third round at the end of day two. New York chose Davis Webb out of the University of California. Picking him up in the third round seems to give the Giants fair value for the pick. The main question is whether the team is looking at Webb as a dependable backup for the foreseeable future, or as Manning’s eventual successor.


The Giant ended the draft by taking RB Wayne Gallman with the No. 140th pick, improving their ground game. However, it wasn’t until their last pick of the day, offensive tackle Adam Bisnowaty, did the team do anything to address an offensive line that under-performed last year.

Highlights of the 2017 Rock And Roll Hall Of Fame Celebrations Held In New York

New York City, also dubbed as the city that never sleeps, feels like a life crash course to most outsiders visiting or relocating from much less busy towns. New York is home to entrepreneurs looking to scale their careers and build a formidable fan base or customer base from all over the world. New York is full of internationally acclaimed tech innovators, musicians, actors, finance professionals, designers, authors, painters and other achievers from different genres of creativity. It is home to many entertainment houses such as HBO, and frequently holds prestigious events such as the BET, the Grammys and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.


On April 29th, HBO will air the 2017 Rock and Roll Hall of Fame induction celebrations which took place at the Brooklyn Barclays Center on April 7th. This year’s ceremony featured the recognitions of Pearl Jam, Electric Light Orchestra, Joan Baez, Yes and Tupac Shakur. David Letterman, Snoop Dogg, and Rush had the honors of presenting these icons’ inaugurations. During the presentations, Snoop Dogg gave a moving and playful speech about Tupac Shakur’s life and artistry. He explained that despite the common misconception that regards the late artist as an unorthodox character, Tupac was only human. He explained that Shakur valued his voice in speaking out for humanity and never shied away from the role. One of the moments that highlighted the night included Alicia Keys’ performances that paid tribute to Shakur. The performances integrated Tupac’s hits, ‘Changes’, ‘Dear Mama’ and ‘Ambitionz Az a Ridah’.


Other artists that gave outstanding presentations included the legendary Lenny Kravitz who performed Prince’s ‘The Cross’ and ‘When Doves Cry’. The Journey music band from the 70s had an electric stage presence which featured Arnel Pineda as the lead singer while performing ‘Don’t Stop Believin’. During the Journey’s inauguration speech, ex-member Steve Perry expressed his gratitude to co-founder Neal Schon and stated that he is one of his most cherished encounters. The 32nd celebrations featured nominees with songs released not later than 1991. The inductees’ enshrinements will be available for viewing in the Rock and Roll of Fame Museum in Cleveland. Rock and Roll Hall of Fame began operating in 1983 and honors producers, artists, engineers and other influential figures who have had a significant contribution towards the development of rock and roll.



Mayor DeBlasio Ups Funding for Deportees

New York City has taken steps to increase free legal representation in the future to people who entered the country illegally or overstayed their visa. Over $16 million in taxpayer’s money has been allotted in Mayor Bill DeBlasio’s proposed 2018 budget to pay for “legal representation for immigrant New Yorkers facing deportation and other immigration challenges.”


The $16 million marks a substantial increase from previous funding efforts by the city and appears to be a response to increase enforcement efforts by Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE). The Mayor’s Office of Immigrant Affairs Commissioner, Nisha Agarwal, said “in the Trump administration there’s really no prioritizing of who they’re targeting.” Since 2013, undocumented immigrants were provided a public defender through the city’s New York Immigrant Family Reunification Project. Last year, the New York City Council provided $6.5 million through the Project to provide legal services to immigrants. The Project reported that 30% of those immigrants who had legal representation, were able to remain in the country.


Mr. DeBlasio’s move follows state efforts sponsored by New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s who allotted $10 million in the 2018 state budget for the same purpose. The Governor stated he wanted “to ensure all immigrants, regardless of residency status, have access to representation.” The funding is part of a public-private partnership with the Carnegie Corporation and the Ford Foundation.


However, the increase funding came with a caveat. De Blasio said the city wouldn’t fund lawyers for immigrants facing deportation who have been convicted of certain serious violent crimes on which the city presently cooperates with ICE. The Mayor explained on Wednesday that “if we believe as a matter of policy and law that’s appropriate, we’re not going to provide legal services to stop that (deportation).” Legal Aid representatives objected to the restrictions saying that, “to not allow us to meet with everyone to be able to assess or determine whether someone is eligible to stay in this country, where many of them have been all of their lives, would be a real outrage.”
