Dozens of miles of New York City streets will be redesigned by year’s end to improve safety for cyclists and speed up commutes for bus riders, Mayor de Blasio announced Tuesday. Hizzoner said the city is on pace to install 30 new miles of protected bike lanes and five new “busways”—or streets where passenger car traffic is restricted—before he leaves office at the end of the year. “A recovery for all of us means thinking about our future, and New York City is doing everything we can to break our dependence on fossil fuels.” The bike lane expansion includes the rollout


Behold, they're transforming USA into a Third World nation with rickshaw lanes and bicycles, enforced via obscene congestion pricing so only VIPs in limousines can use the streets, which now are free from the common slob who now rides a bicycle like a peasant. So Soviet that it hurts, and probably done using "federal dollars" to boot.

Great. They can fight it out with the Yellow cabs. Nothing like having the government solve your transportation problems. You won't have to catch COVID on the Subway.

Baltimore—The Yankees’ COVID outbreak spread to a ninth member of their organization. Aaron Boone said Sunday they got news a “staff member” tested positive, which they learned Saturday night. According to Boone, the new positive is not part of the on-field coaching staff and the team didn’t name the person, as it did with pitching coach Matt Blake, first base coach Reggie Willits and third base coach Phil Nevin.(Snip) The staff member that tested positive Saturday is quarantining in Baltimore and, like the previous eight, is fully vaccinated. The other positive cases remain in quarantine in Tampa.

Police in Northern California have arrested three social activists on charges that they vandalized the former home of a police expert witness after he testified on behalf of fired Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin during his murder trial in the death of George Floyd. The arrests Tuesday in Santa Rosa were in connection with the targeting in mid-April of the onetime residence of defense use-of-force witness and retired police officer Barry Brodd. Pig's blood was smeared on the house in Santa Rosa, north of San Francisco, and a pig's head was left there. Police were quick to conclude that the thousands of dollars

Eric Clapton has hit out at 'propaganda' over vaccine safety, claiming he suffered alarming side effects after his Covid jabs. The legendary guitarist, a lockdown sceptic, said his hands and feet became 'useless'–prompting fears he would never play again. In a message to his music producer, he said: 'I took the first jab of AZ [AstraZeneca] and straight away had severe reactions which lasted ten days.' The 76-year-old said he 'recovered eventually' but suffered further 'disastrous reactions' six weeks later after the second shot. He added: 'My hands and feet were either frozen, numb or burning, and pretty much useless for two weeks,

In a twist worthy of Mark Twain himself, a St. John’s University professor has been fired for reading a passage containing the N-word from Twain’s anti-slavery novel “Pudd’nhead Wilson” in her “Literature of Satire” class.

Three years after a deranged nanny savagely stabbed three babies in a Queens “birthing center,” the assailant will not face trial—and the unregulated, makeshift maternity wards for foreign women have only multiplied in New York City. Some immigration experts call the “birth tourism” industry that supports these baby businesses a national security threat, as they aggressively promote themselves overseas as places for mothers to give birth to instant American citizens. Yu Fen Wang was working as a nanny at the Meibao Birthing Care Center in Flushing on Sept. 21, 2018 when she attacked three newborns, along with two adults, while screaming

The constant protest is taking its toll on the Rose City. Residents in the metro area surrounding Portland, Oregon, say the city’s downtown is dirty, unsafe and uninviting, and they don’t expect to visit as often, a poll commissioned by The Oregonian found. Residents described the city’s core as “destroyed,” “trashed,” and “sad,” and frequently referred to “riots” in discussing the city’s economic and cultural hub.(Snip) Another big problem is homelessness. As workers stayed home to stem the spread of the coronavirus, there was a sharp increase downtown in the number of people camping on the streets, particularly in Old Town Chinatown,

A group of gay police officers is barred from marching in next year’s annual Pride parade, the police organization’s leaders said Friday. New York City Pride has told the NYPD’s Gay Officers Action League that it is not welcome in the parade, said Det. Brian Downey, president of the police group. NYC Pride had been expected to announce the Gay Officers Action League’s exclusion from the parade early next week. But GOAL preempted that announcement by issuing a news release on Friday night—and it referred to parts of the NYC Pride statement on its exclusion that have not been released yet.

Bentonville, Ark.—Walmart, the world’s largest retailer, said Friday that it won’t require vaccinated shoppers or workers to wear a mask in its U.S. stores unless state or local laws say otherwise. Vaccinated shoppers can go maskless immediately, the company said. Vaccinated workers can stop wearing them on Tuesday. As an incentive, Walmart said it is offering workers $75 if they prove they’ve been vaccinated. Customers won’t be asked but rather held to an “honor system” regarding their vaccination status, Walmart said. Workers, however, will need to answer “yes” to a vaccination question in a daily health assessment in order to go maskless,

Joe Biden wants to present this image of himself as the congenial moderate who wants to unify everyone. As we’ve seen so far, his first few months have been anything but. It’s apparently not great for the folks working with him behind the scenes either. As we saw during the campaign, Biden lost his temper multiple times with voters and reporters, two groups you would think you’d be trying to court while you’re running, not yell or scream at. He called one girl a “dog-faced pony soldier,” insulted another man with “Look, fat,” even challenged a voter to “go outside” and told him that he was

The military columnists in Israel understood that this meant the armored corps and artillery deployed near Gaza will attack, but the unclear notice led foreign reporters to report the beginning of a ground operation in Gaza. Now it has been clarified that the unclear announcement was a planned trick by the IDF to eliminate a large number of Hamas terrorists within a short time.

Florida might as well be known as the sixth borough.New data from the Sunshine State’s Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles offers the latest glimpse of just how many New Yorkers fled south during the COVID-19 pandemic. At least 33,565 New Yorkers exchanged their NY drivers licenses for Florida credentials between September 2020 and March 2021.That’s a 32% increase from the same period the prior year, when 25,370 New York driver’s licenses were traded for Florida ones.Florida officials said a major cause of migration was parents looking to get their kids back in full-time, in-person school.

Endorsing such conspiracy theories, which allege that President Joe Biden didn’t actually win the election, poses a bigger threat to the U.S. than 9/11 hijackers ever did, he said.“The fact that the majority of Republicans believe our election was stolen is a sure sign that more violence is to come,”

In what other product category does one openly debase the quality as a means of gathering attention?
