Marijuana and other life-changing decisions

first_imgYvonne Balcer Dear Editor:Jersey City is introducing legislation that might have life changing consequences for its residents. The first is the introduction of recreational marijuana. While the state benefits greatly, most likely the local residents will be stuck with higher car insurance rates with undeniably increase of car accidents. Recreational marijuana has contributed to more fatal accidents according to the Denver Post, the daily newspaper in Colorado. It is the reason many towns in New Jersey said they will not have recreational marijuana; they do not want to put that strain on their police enforcing traffic violations.The second is the removal of burlesque from the city codes. While I will admit, there are more racy videos and movies on the internet, those archaic laws have kept Jersey City from becoming Newark with their adult entertainment establishments and Times Square during the 1960s to the 1980s. Times Square was a seedy place when Burlesque, go-go clubs, and peep shows littered the area. Adult entertainment attracts crime.Newark is still a high crime while Times Square has improved its image when New York City closed down these adult entertainment places. This is similar to the State of New Jersey changing the requirements for bail because they felt it discriminated against poor people. Yet even Newark Mayor Ras Baraka said too many defendants facing firearms charges are allowed back onto the streets within hours of their arrest. This is another example of a bill being passed without addressing the negative impact of a law.In the need to be politically correct, I don’t think Jersey City has thought of the consequences that might affect the residents of Jersey City.last_img read more

Organizers say it has been held for at least 20 years and usually attracts around 1,000 bicyclists.However, the decision was made to cancel it this year in response to the need for social distancing during the pandemic. There are plans to bring it back for Fourth of July in 2021.At the opposite end of the island at the same time, a Fourth of July bike parade rolls through the south end of town under the direction of the South Ocean City Improvement Association.But the SOCIA announced earlier that it was canceling this year’s south end bike parade because of the pandemic.

Dave Matthews Band Releases Charlottesville 2018 Recording For Summer Tour Ticket Holders

first_imgOn December 14th and 15th, 2018, Dave Matthews Band played a two-night homecoming run at Charlottesville, VA’s John Paul Jones Arena, bringing their first North American fall tour since 2012 to a close. A previously unreleased live recording of the show from December 14th is now available to download for fans who have purchased tickets to DMB’s upcoming 2019 summer tour.The Friday night concert at Charlottesville’s John Paul Jones Arena began with a pair of tunes from 2002’s Busted Stuff, with “Big Eyed Fish” transitioning smoothly into “Bartender”. They continued with another older fan-favorite in “Satellite” before turning to one of their newer tunes, “Samurai Cop (Oh Joy Begin)”. “#41”, “Again and Again”, and “Everyday” all came next before the band charged into a cover of Aerosmith‘s 1975 anthem, “Sweet Emotion”, which has become a recurring setlist staple throughout much of the fall tour.The band’s mid-set collaboration alongside the Preservation Hall Jazz Band came 10 songs into the show. Their performance of the newer song, “That Girl Is You”, started with plenty of fresh energy thanks to the unapologetic tone and presence of NOLA outfit’s horns. The song took plenty of time to open up and develop, with the members of the Preservation Hall Jazz Band playing away on their trombones, trumpets, and saxophones while a smiling Matthews strummed along on with his acoustic guitar.The second half of the show saw the band continue with performances of “Louisiana Bayou”, their go-to cover of Peter Gabriel‘s “Sledgehammer”, “Don’t Drink The Water”, and “So Right”. The set came to an end following performances of “Why I Am”, “You & Me”, “Dancing Nancies”, and “Grey Street”. They would return for a two-song encore of “Christmas Song”, which recently made its way back into the setlist after a four-year break, and their cover of Bob Dylan‘s “All Along the Watchtower”, which included a verse from Led Zeppelin‘s “Stairway To Heaven”. DMB summer tour ticket holders can head here for more information on how to access the show recording.For a list of Dave Matthews Band’s upcoming tour dates, see below.

Flashback Friday! A GIF Tribute to Tony Host Hugh Jackman

first_img Star Files This. (2011) Aka: What dreams are made of. With NPH up for a Tony for Hedwig, it’s very possible that the two will go head-to-head again, as they did in this mashup that included “Anything You Can Do,” “A Boy Like That” and “You’re the Top.” When Glinda made a move (2004) It’s that Aussie prince whose reputation is so scandalacious! For Jackman’s second turn hosting, Wicked star Kristin Chenoweth opened the ceremony with a thrillifying introduction. When he got to first base with Rod (2004) Jackman and John Tartaglia were both nominated for Best Actor in a Musical in 2004 (for The Boy from Oz and Avenue Q, respectively), but it’s pretty clear who Rod was rooting for. (Hint: Not John Tartaglia.) When he tried the “Jared Leto” look (2003) We know it was your first year hosting, Hugh, but what was up with that hair? On that note, please shave before Sunday. When he gyrated with SJP (2004) When Jackman (as The Boy from Oz’s Peter Allen) pulled up Sarah Jessica Parker mid-performance, she was a bit camera shy at first, but soon enough she was swaying her hips. Come on—there’s nothing wrong with a little Sex in the (Radio) City! When Billy Crystal butted in (2005) Veteran host Billy Crystal somehow missed the memo when Hugh Jackman hosted for the third time, and started the show with his own opening shtick. Even though Jackman rained on his parade and interrupted him, Crystal was still generous enough to offer him a few pointers (as if he needed them). If there’s one thing we know about the Tonys (and not to toot our own horn, but we know a fair amount) it’s this: When the ceremony includes Hugh Jackman, the evening is bound to be a success. And this year, we’re in luck—the stage and screen hunk, who always looks great in black tie attire, is returning to Radio City Music Hall to host for the fourth time. Thanks to the power of the Internet, we took a look back at the song and dance man’s past Tony appearances, from flirting with Kristin Chenoweth, to his epic dance-off with Neil Patrick Harris, to accepting a couple trophies of his own. We can’t wait to see what Jackman has in store for us this year; tune in to CBS on June 8 to find out!center_img View Comments When he took his trophy for a spin (2012) Jackman was honored with a Special Tony Award for his contributions to the Broadway community as a performer and humanitarian. Yes, even if you nabbed a trophy eight years prior, that shiny spinny medalion never gets old. When he ran from the wings to win (2004) We get it. When you’re the host, there’s no time to claim a seat in the house when your nomination category is announced. Besides, an entrance from downstage right is way more dramatic. When he fought the urge to dance (2005) With two X-Men movies under his belt and a third on the way, Jackman admitted that “dancing makes studio execs really nervous” and “Wolverine does not do high kicks.” He then proceeded to launch into a ridiculous dance routine, including everything from “Do I Hear a Waltz?” to “Shake Your Booty.” When he out-kicked the Rockettes (2004) In the show’s opening number, Jackman brought down the house with “One Night Only” from Dreamgirls, backed by the Hairspray Dynamites, the Little Shop urchins and the radio trio from Caroline, or Change. Oh, plus the Rockettes and basically everyone else on Broadway at the time.  Hugh Jackmanlast_img read more

Healthy Holidays

first_img“Roasting your turkey is healthier than frying your turkey, but either way, you should remove the skin,” Berg said.Cranberries are another example. As a good source of vitamin C and phytochemicals that boost your immune system, there is no denying the benefits of this fruit, Berg said.However, instead of buying canned cranberry sauce with added sugars, Berg recommends making your own cranberry relish or sauce using fresh cranberries.But cranberries aren’t the only super food on the holiday table. Pumpkins, for instance, are a great source of vitamin A.“You can get plenty of beta-carotene (an antioxidant the body converts to vitamin A) from pumpkin pie,” Berg said. “But you might consider roasting pumpkin like you would other squash in the oven and enjoying it as a side dish or pureed into soup with roasted pumpkin seeds on top.”In addition to choosing inherently nutritious foods, it’s important to remember other healthy eating habits during the holidays.Eating off a smaller plate and watching your alcohol intake can help slash a few calories, Berg said. And families can even work in a little exercise into their holiday traditions to help burn off the calories from holiday indulgences.“Take a walk with the family after dinner (or) throw the football in the yard with both kids and adults,” Berg said. “Not only does exercise help us use a few more of the calories we take in, but if you know you’re going to be moving after the meal instead of slinking toward the couch, you might stop yourself from taking those few last bites that are likely to cause the ‘holiday food coma.’”Visit extension.uga.edu for more information to help keep the holidays safe, healthy and happy. While the holidays are often viewed as a time of inevitable weight gain, it’s possible to enjoy some of the same foods while still maintaining a healthy diet.While many factors can contribute to weight gain during the holidays, Allison Berg, a nutrition and health specialist with University of Georgia Cooperative Extension, notes that many foods associated with the holiday season are nutritious and shouldn’t necessarily be avoided altogether.For example, un-processed turkey, the star of Thanksgiving diner, is a lean protein when prepared the right way. A 3-ounce slice of roasted turkey breast is about 125 calories, while dark meat turkey has 140 calories and contains more fat.last_img read more
