News
This weekend, the news raised two questions to ponder: What is a city for?; and, Can Bill de Blasio be popular?

“In the age of Zoom, when white-collar workers are increasingly detached from the office, cities must be more than skyscrapers,” writes Mark Sappenfield, editor of The Christian Science Monitor. “They have to be habitable. In other words, if you can live anywhere you want, then cities should be a place where you want to live.

Over the centuries, public health crises have played an important role in making cities more livable, Sappenfield points out. “A 2021 United Nations report notes that during the bubonic plague, Lucca, Italy forced all of its residents to clean the street outside their homes every Saturday. In the 19th century, concerns about tuberculosis in the United States led to a demand for more open spaces. The result was public parks like the Emerald Necklace in Boston and Central Park in New York.

We are still in the process of recognizing and analyzing the changes that COVID-19 has brought to New York and their effects on livability. What about dining sheds, with their proponents and detractors? Or the increase in the number of cyclists and owners, resulting in more cycle lanes and fewer parking spaces? Or the continued push for more open spaces, such as open streets. Will we ever say that COVID-19 has challenged the pre-eminence of the automobile in New York and led to a reassessment of the use of public space, including sidewalks and sidewalks, on behalf of the habitability?

Mayapple, daffodil, hyacinth, lily,
and by the front steps
every puffy shade of purple
and lilac lavender,
my mother’s favorite flower,
sweet breath drifting through
open windows:
memory-driven scent of spring.

~ Linda Pastan, from “The Months”

Wheelbarrows overflowing with colorful flowers will welcome people to Saturday’s Arts Festival here in Saluda. After a two-year hiatus, the event returns and the city is busy getting ready for the big day. This morning I spotted city workers carrying plumbing fixtures into the new public restrooms in Pace Park. These facilities should therefore be operational by this weekend. Everyone worked hard.

Tired of gardening chores and eating weed, I sink into a wicker rocking chair—a glass of cool water in one hand and the May issue of Martha Stewart Living in the other. Inside is a calendar of Martha’s daily chores for the month. Suddenly I realize that the rest of us are slipping, not even close to the finish line. Some of us are still sitting at the starting grid!

For example, a week includes making lemon curd (ready-to-eat in a jar works for me), making batches of homemade dog food, planting trees, trimming boxwood, frequent weightlifting and cardio, and a hat-trick lunch in Central Park. That’s not all – it’s just one small list of things planned on Martha’s May calendar.

The following weeks involve opening the pool/swimming pool, planting potatoes and edamame…plus 497,000 other things, a lot more cardio/weight lifting/yoga, weeding the gardens, training the Friesian horses for rides with newly upholstered carriages (guess who did the upholstery!), washing all Polaris vehicles, and the big kicker: bathing the donkeys.

Shit, I’m exhausted after weeding on a Tuesday afternoon. And my calendar didn’t even list it!

This morning, those guys I saw downtown with boxes of Kohler bathroom accessories probably didn’t mark weightlifting and cardio on their planners either.

I doubt ANY of us have plans marked on the May calendar to bathe the donkeys on a Friday afternoon. Yes, I’ll admit it now – I’m too tired to make lemon curd for tarts, and the donkeys will just have to dive into the pond if they want to take a bath.

The 17thand Saluda Arts Festival will take place on May 21 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Ninety local and regional artists will participate; live music, food, entertainment, and more.

Saluda Tailgate Market is every Friday in the west city parking lot off Main Street from 4:30-6 p.m.

The community potluck and bingo night at the Saluda Center will take place on May 30 at 6 p.m. Bring a side dish to share; main entrance offered.

Happy Birthday May to Amy Copeland, Corinne Gerwe, Chris Anderson, Mark Jackson, Cary Pace, Lisa Hipp, Trevor Young, Paul Marion, Jesse Thomas, Margaret Sease, Elizabeth Baldwin, Chad Baldwin, Lynn Cass, Thelma Jones, Betsy Burdett, Melia Bradley, June Taylor, Robin Kirby, Kevin Matthews and Stella Barnett.

On June 16, Wollman Rink in Central Park will transform into DiscOasis, “a colorful nightclub set up with a roller skating rink and a dance floor,” according to Audacy. “At the center of the rink will be a fantastic roller rink featuring theatrical performances directed by Tony Award nominee David Korins and lighting designed by award winner David Weiner. A catering service will be available with special menus to be announced shortly. Tickets range from $16 to $64. The disco will last until October 1st.

An Upper West Sider resident wrote an impassioned Daily News op-ed about dining sheds. “Born out of necessity, the sidewalk sheds added a bohemian vibe to the city’s commercial streets and made it safe to gather again. They also helped us collectively begin to imagine a future where cars didn’t take precedence over people, where streets could be dedicated to commerce and community, and where the city could be a little warmer, a little more human. . In my neighborhood, the sheds have brought a dynamism that did not exist before the pandemic. What do you think?

There’s a new “Gold Coast” and it’s in New Jersey, according to PureWow. “Dubbed ‘the next Brooklyn,’ parts of Hudson County, New Jersey, including Jersey City, Hoboken, Weehawken, and western New York, are hotter than ever and deserve a closer look. . For many Gen Z and Millennials priced out of New York’s intense real estate market, an emerging trend is to rent or buy in these cities, an area known as the “Gold Coast.” of NJ (which refers to how they run along the Hudson River parallel to Manhattan from the Financial District to the Upper West Side.)” New Jersey has also legalized marijuana for recreational use, even though the word is that expensive!

The old domestic hot water boiler was 10 feet long and 6 feet high; the new boiler is only 40 inches high. It cost $170,000.

Real estate terms have evolved, according to Business Insider, which is why the developers of 200 Amsterdam Avenue (69-70) can say that “the 668-foot-tall tower has a total of ten penthouses, starting at 41st stage”. However, according to several dictionaries, the word penthouse is derived from the old French word “apentis”, which means appendix, “on top of a tall building.” Two of these appendages made the news in the neighborhood last week.

The city’s landmarks preservation commission gave billionaire investor Bill Ackman the green light to add to the top of a century-old building on 77th Street near Central Park West, The Real Deal reported, but not as it originally intended. “The detractors claimed [original plan] would disrupt the character of the region and set a precedent for billionaires to make whatever changes they want. The LPC sent Ackman’s architects back to the drawing board where they produced a scaled-down version, which the Commission called an “architectural masterpiece.”

Ackman and his wife Neri Oxman will share sightlines with the owners of another appendage atop 360 Central Park West at 96th Street. “Originally designed by Rosario Candela in 1929, the upper floors and interiors are now converted and meticulously transformed into a spacious new condominium duplex designed by CetraRuddy Architecture,” YIMBY reported. “The full-service antebellum building is the only Central Park West condominium to bear the prestigious Candela imprimatur.” Architectural Digest said “Candela’s 1920s Manhattan Co-ops set the global gold standard.”

It was hats – and dresses, too – at the annual Frederick Law Olmsted Luncheon at the Central Park Conservancy, “better known as ‘hat lunch’, now in its 40th year,” wrote the New York Times. Held on May 4 in the Conservatory Garden on 105th Street, it hosted 1,300 guests, including former mayor Michael Bloomberg (no hat) who said, “It’s a handful of people who invest a lot of money every year to keep Central Park running. Click the link to see the range of hats, including some with a message for SCOTUS.

Open Streets was an emergency measure instituted for the pandemic, but “a campaign backed by the city’s new mayor is now aimed at wresting dominance from vehicles for good and preserving these new outdoor paradises”, according to The Guardian. “The alternative vision for America’s largest city calls for 25% of its road space to be converted from car use to walkable pedestrian plazas, green spaces, bus lanes and dedicated bike lanes. 2025. The campaign, called 25×25, has now also been embraced by activists in Los Angeles, an indication of how some Americans are questioning the longstanding primacy of cars amid an increase in cycling since the start of the pandemic.

Sergio Pérez sees the golden age of Mexican runners https://homerailwayjournal.com/sergio-perez-sees-the-golden-age-of-mexican-runners/ Sat, 07 May 2022 20:07:20 +0000 https://homerailwayjournal.com/sergio-perez-sees-the-golden-age-of-mexican-runners/ AP – Sergio Pérez has looked around the best motor racing series in the world and sees a golden age for Mexican drivers.

AP – Sergio Pérez has looked around the best motor racing series in the world and sees a golden age for Mexican drivers.

He sits third in the Formula 1 (F1) championship after four races, just behind his Red Bull teammate and reigning champion Max Verstappen ahead of this week’s first Miami Grand Prix.

Mexico’s Pato O’Ward just won his first IndyCar race last week and is set to sign a new contract with McLaren. His compatriot Daniel Suárez is in his second season at the wheel of Trackhouse Racing, a team co-owned by Pitbull and built around Suarez.

“I think Mexico is having its best time in (racing) history, with the best drivers in every series. It’s great,” Pérez said in an interview hosted by Red Bull partner ExxonMobil. how long it lasts is anyone’s guess.

O’Ward turned 23 on Friday, is one of IndyCar’s bright young stars and has F1 aspirations.

Suárez, 30, is a former Xfinity Series champion driving the best Cup opportunity of his career.

This golden era of Mexican racing seems to rest on Pérez and his next steps. The 12-year-old F1 veteran is 32 and in the final year of his Red Bull contract. A team representative cut a question about his future with Red Bull and the series in general.

Pérez said he was not using the final year of his contract as motivation to push for a first career championship, which would also be the first for a Mexican driver. He is just five points behind Verstappen and Ferrari leader Charles Leclerc by 32 points.

“I’ve been in Formula 1 for 12 years, so I’m very relaxed about it,” Pérez said. “I just make sure I enjoy it.”

Pérez is only the sixth Mexican driver in F1 history, and he has been the only one on the grid for several years since Esteban Gutiérrez lost his seat with Haas F1 after 2016.

Pérez is adored at home and last season became the first Mexican driver to step onto the podium at the Mexican Grand Prix, where he placed third. He enjoys a large fanbase during the race in Austin, Texas, and will likely have another in Miami.

Pérez hopes there will be more Mexican F1 drivers on the way.

O’Ward expressed a desire to reach F1, and Pérez noted that Red Bull had signed Mexican driver Noel León as one of its junior production drivers.

“It’s great,” Pérez said. “That’s what we need.”

Pérez says he doesn’t get to talk to O’Ward very often and when he does, it’s not necessarily about the race.

“We talked a few days ago about life,” Pérez said. “We are not in regular contact, but we talk to each other when we see each other.”

Pérez said if the F1 racing calendar gets much longer – 23 races were scheduled this season before Russia’s was scrapped following the country’s invasion of Ukraine – he might not be there because it would keep him away from his growing family for too long. He already has two children and a third is on the way.

“I don’t like bringing them to the races. I come here for work. I do my own thing,” he said. “Miami would have been a good opportunity for them to come. I’m expecting a third (child) very soon, so my wife can’t travel right now.

Happy Mother’s Day weekend!

After checking the website www.usamothersday.com/history-of-mothers-day/, I would like to share this paragraph:

“The first official celebration was held at a Methodist church in Grafton, West Virginia, in May 1908. It was organized by Anna Jarvis and was financially supported by John Wanamaker, a Philadelphia store owner who organized an event for Mother’s Day on the same day. Anna Jarvis continued her efforts and wanted Mother’s Day added to the national calendar by writing letters to newspapers and politicians. In 1912, the day would be celebrated annually in many many states and cities, and in 1914 President (Woodrow) Wilson signed a measure establishing Mother’s Day as an official annual celebration on the second Sunday in May!

Vice President and Cagayan de Oro 2nd District Representative Rufus Rodriguez urges House of Representatives and Senate leaders to meet with presidential and vice presidential candidates and their political parties to discuss the conduct of a rapid canvassing.

Rodriguez said in a statement on Thursday, May 5 that based on the session schedule, the House and Senate have only 12 days, including a weekend, to complete vote counting and declare the winning nominees for the presidential and vice-presidential.

“We hope we can complete the canvassing and declare the winners in this short time,” the Midnanao solon said. The campaign is the official tally of votes for a given election.

National and local elections will take place on Monday 9 May.

Both houses of Congress are due to meet again on May 23 and adjourn their third and final regular session on June 3. The solicitation of votes will take place during this period.

As in the past, in the interests of transparency, Rodriguez said a receiving transmission should be installed in the House so that Congress has an advance electronic copy of the election results.

“There should be a mechanism to expedite the sending of provincial and municipal results to Congress in the event of an unreasonable or suspicious delay,” Rodriguez said.

Rodriguez noted that the session of Congress as a canvassing body should be chaired by the Speaker of the House and the President of the Senate.

He said that since the president of the Senate, Vicente Sotto III, is a candidate for the vice-presidency, “we leave it to his discretion and judgment what to do.”
