By Abraham Riesman Whither the funnybooks? When the New York Times began publishing best-seller lists for comics material a few years ago, it was a welcome step toward greater industry insight, as well as greater visibility for creators and publishers. Alas, the experiment was not to last. The comics world is, understandably, quite unhappy with the development. There are at least two issues at play here. The first is about numbers. One of the most infuriating aspects of the comics world is its dearth of meaningful, industry-wide statistics:
Jun 24, 4: You know who they are, but almost nobody wants to admit to being one. Hipsters know things the rest of us don’t, and they want us to know that they know it, too. They are cooler than you or I. They were cool before it was cool.

Drive to the east and Canal Street to the south. The neighborhood is bordered in the south and west by Chinatown — which extends north to roughly Grand Street, in the west by Nolita and in the north by the East Village. History[ edit ] Prior to Europeans[ edit ] As was all of Manhattan Island, the area now known as the Lower East Side was occupied by members of the Lenape tribe, who were organized in bands which moved from place to place according to the seasons, fishing on the rivers in the summer, and moving inland in the fall and winter to gather crops and hunt for food.
Their main trail took approximately the route of Broadway. Around these farms were a number of enclaves of free or “half-free” Africans, which served as a buffer between the Dutch and the Native Americans. One of the largest of these was located along the modern Bowery between Prince Street and Astor Place. On the modern map of Manhattan, the Delancey farm  is represented in the grid of streets from Division Street north to Houston Street.
A spacious projected Delancey Square—intended to cover the area within today’s Eldridge, Essex, Hester and Broome Streets—was eliminated when the loyalist Delancey family’s property was confiscated after the American Revolution. The city Commissioners of Forfeiture eliminated the aristocratic planned square for a grid, effacing Delancey’s vision of a New York laid out like the West End of London. It was named after the schoolmaster Jacobus van Corlaer, who settled on this “plantation” that in was called by a Europeanized version of its Lenape name , Nechtans  or Nechtanc.
On February 25, , volunteers from the New Amsterdam colony killed thirty  Wiechquaesgecks at their encampment at Corlears Hook, as part of Kieft’s War , in retaliation for ongoing conflicts between the colonists and the natives of the area, including their unwillingness to pay tribute, and their refusal to turn over the killer of a colonist. On older maps and documents it is usually spelled Corlaers Hook, but since the early 19th century the spelling has been anglicized to Corlears.
Sometimes this maneuver can contribute to a massive loss of life. The most egregious example was the reporting in the lead-up to the invasion of Iraq. But the Times, like the others, continued publishing stories without challenging their sources in authority, mostly unnamed, who were pushing for war. The result was a disastrous intervention that led to hundreds of thousands of civilian deaths and continued instability in Iraq, including the formation of the Islamic State.

Comments Young adults raised on condom ads — remember the one with the horny balloon animals? But cases of chlamydia, among other STIs, have been on the rise across Canada for more than a decade, disease experts caution. In Ontario, 36, cases of chlamydia were reported in — a per-cent jump from 10 years earlier. In Alberta, government statistics show a per-cent increase in chlamydia cases over the same period. The trend is similar in other provinces, including British Columbia, where reported cases of chlamydia have risen by 62 per cent in the past decade.
The surging numbers are due in part to growing populations and improved testing methods for chlamydia.

Raymond Rotham writes the first theater review for The Times. The New York Times launches a Sunday edition. The first edition sold for 2 cents. Maria Morgan is the first female reporter to occupy a desk in The Times newsroom, where she’s assigned to stock news, horse shows, and racing. The Times expose the crooked dealings of Tammany Hall’s William Marcy Tweed, or “Boss Tweed”, who, along with others, had been stealing millions from the New York City Treasury, according to documents presented to the paper by his enemies.
The story displayed figures from the Controller’s books showing large chunks of money were being diverted to the Tammany Ring. Miller never received a dime. The checks were actually endorsed by firms in partnership with Tweed. The deception evident in these revelations marked the beginning of the end for Tweed and his underhanded operation. He was convicted on corruption charges and sentenced to prison.
This page one story ran under a three-column headline and is believed to have been the paper’s first display heading. The first Times article to report Tweed’s malfeasance appeared July 8th. In a short lived experiment, The Times begin publishing the first of three supplements written in Spanish.
What It Really Means To Abolish ICE
Adam and Peter Lanza on a hike when Adam was about ten. People sent candy, too, and when I visited Peter, last fall, he showed me a bag of year-old caramels. He had not wanted to throw away anything that people sent. We met six times, for interviews lasting as long as seven hours. Shelley, a librarian at the University of Connecticut, usually joined us and made soup or chili or salads for lunch. Sometimes we played with their German shepherd.

Starting in the mid s, it became common practice among establishment newspapers to provide positive coverage of conservative think tanks—particularly during Republican administrations. As I explain in my book on the history of conservative think tanks , such stories served a dual purpose. For the think tanks, the stories were essentially press releases that gave them credibility in Washington.
For the papers, the stories functioned as a signal of political balance—a sign that conservative intellectuals and policymakers were receiving the same level of exposure as liberal ones. Through sea changes in the political and media landscape, this trend has persisted. However, despite all of the spilled ink, the story, as is usually the case, functions primarily as Heritage propaganda, with this central claim left open to question.

By its nature, this involves abuse at every step. On June 5, undercover ICE agents posed as workers at a garden center, hosting a fake company meeting to round employees up.

Story Continued Below It is by no means, however, unprecedented in the long life of Trump. In , the federal government sued Trump and his father, alleging systematic racial discrimination in the rentals at their dozens of New York City apartment buildings. It is where he first learned to view the government not as a potential righter of wrongs but as an impediment to his business interests, not as a protector of less powerful citizens but as a meddlesome obstacle in his pursuit of profit.
And it is where he first demonstrated how he would combat it—with the same unapologetic, counterpunching, deny-and-delay, distractions-laced playbook on display today.

As a result, Garcia and others argue, young adults are physiologically able to reproduce but not psychologically or socially ready to ‘settle down’ and begin a family. Research on hookups is not seated within a singular disciplinary sphere; it sits at the crossroads of theoretical and empirical ideas drawn from a diverse range of fields, including psychology, anthropology, sociology, biology, medicine, and public health. This term’s definition can range from person to person and age to age.
It can encircle from things ranging from kissing, oral sex, or intercourse. A hookup is an act that involves sexual intimacy which is said to be a liberating experience. On the other hand, a culture of hooking up is oppressive, monolithic, and the intimacy is only supposed to occur within a specific context. Young women tend to be honest about their sexual encounters and experiences, while young men tend to lie more often about theirs.
Another study shows that once a person has sex for their first time, it becomes less of an issue or big deal to future relationships or hook ups. During this study, it was shown that girls in high school do not care as much as boys do on having sex in a relationship. But, on the contrary girls will have sex with their partner in order to match them.
Experts worry that if society disconnects intimate sexual behavior and emotional connection that teens who hook up will have trouble forming relationships later in life.

In direct sunlight the shade is closer to bronze. Late in the day its western edge, turned toward the Washington Monument and the Lincoln Memorial, begins to reflect the setting sun and turns a surprisingly bright gold. The most impressive and ambitious public building to go up in Washington in a generation — if also the owner of a truly awkward acronym — the NMAAHC draws its considerable power from a willingness to embrace the nearly bottomless complexity of both its mission and its site.

Opt out or contact us anytime When it came to Lunchables, they did try to add more healthful ingredients. Later, a low-fat version of the trays was developed, using meats and cheese and crackers that were formulated with less fat, but it tasted inferior, sold poorly and was quickly scrapped. When I met with Kraft officials in to discuss their products and policies on nutrition, they had dropped the Maxed Out line and were trying to improve the nutritional profile of Lunchables through smaller, incremental changes that were less noticeable to consumers.
Across the Lunchables line, they said they had reduced the salt, sugar and fat by about 10 percent, and new versions, featuring mandarin-orange and pineapple slices, were in development. Once in school, they often trashed the healthful stuff in their brown bags to get right to the sweets. This idea — that kids are in control — would become a key concept in the evolving marketing campaigns for the trays.

Some applicants want to know how good the campus Wi-Fi system is, whether the fitness center offers spin classes or even if the cafeteria has an organic salad bar. Let me suggest that college-bound high schoolers add one more item to their collegiate checklist: If applicants and their parents want to know whether the dating scene at a particular college is geared more towards wild hookups or traditional relationships, the best barometer will always be the ratio of women to men on campus.
How do I know this? But when women are in oversupply—as they are today at most U. With girls continuing to outpace boys in school and young women continuing to attend college in ever-greater numbers, the U.

The guys practice the requisite Christian business principles, but blow through the Baylor babes that are in endless supply. This lack of transparency can be especially problematic for women because, according to a Journal of Sex Research study authored by five Loyola Marymount psychologists , college women are twice as likely as college men to experience distress after hookups. Just as sex-ratio research predicts, it is the colleges with male-heavy gender ratios where dating is more traditional.
