  • NYC Mayoral Front-Runner Scott Stringer

    Steven A Henry via Getty Images Scott Stringer, an early front-runner for New York City mayor, pledged to completely phase out fossil fuels, drive private utility companies out of the nation’s largest metropolis, and “electrify everything” in a near total embrace of climate activists’ demands ahead of this year’s election. The 34-page proposal Stringer laid out Sunday would transform the five boroughs, glazing the rooftops with solar panels and battery units, prioritizing bike lanes and pedestrian walkways over highways, and providing new programs to make electricity cheaper and green jobs more plentiful for the city’s squeezed working class.

  • New York City Shuts Down Indoor Dining

    New York City restaurants must stop indoor dining on Monday, Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced Friday. Cuomo also called on Congress to include restaurants and bars in further economic aid packages. Restaurants in NYC will be required to close their indoor dining rooms, says Business Insider. The increased restrictions come as coronavirus cases in New York City surge. Indoor dining is an incredibly high-risk activity for COVID-19. Covered outdoor patios do not offer any safety either, as the air is stagnant inside the tent.

  • Random Dude Dumps Two Big 'Ol Bags Of Eels In Brooklyn Lake

    In the latest of such incidents at Prospect Park Lake in Brooklyn, New York, a mysterious stranger released exotic wildlife there, then walked away. According to HuffPost, a witness said he saw a man dragging two large bags to the shoreline, of what appeared to be wriggling snakes. The man dumped bags of live eels into the water. Officials identified them as swamp eels native to Southeast Asia, which have been found in at least eight states. New Yorkers free thousands of non-native animals every year. Most die quickly, but some survive, reproduce and end up causing lasting harm. People like animals and they sometimes think they’re doing a good thing by letting them go. Most will die. Some will become a problem, and then there’s no going back. Jason Munshi-South, Urban Ecologist Fordham University. New York state and city officials say it’s too soon to know how the eels in Prospect Park might affect local species. Eels can become voracious eaters, though.

  • Les éthylotests disponibles dans les commerces qui vendent de l'alcool dès juillet

    Jusque-là, seules les discothèques et les épiceries de nuit devaient proposer des éthylotests à leurs clients. Cette obligation va bientôt s'étendre à tous les magasins qui vendent de l'alcool. Mais Julien Chivé, caviste bordelais, n'est pas vraiment convaincu. "Je trouve que ça ne sert pas à grand-chose. Les gens savent bien qu'après deux verres, il faut s'arrêter si on veut reprendre la voiture. Et les clients rencontrés ce jeudi matin ne voient pas non plus l'intérêt d'en acheter. "Ca me semble absurde", lance l'un d'eux. "De toute façon, après deux verres, on sera positif, donc c'est à chacun de se gérer", explique un autre.Dans l'épicerie de Virgine Matheron, à Talence (Gironde), il est difficile de trouver une place pour les éthylotests. La gérante doit enlever des produits et envisage surtout des coûts supplémentaires. En effet, dans le supermarché Carrefour City, qui en commercialise depuis un an, ces produits ne sont pas très populaires. "On en a vendu trois en un an", confie le gérant. Près de 50 000 commerçants devraient proposer des éthylotests à partir du 1er juillet, sous peine d'une amende de 675 euros.
