LOWER EAST SIDE, Manhattan — The heartbroken mother of a 15-year-old boy killed while subway surfing on a train crossing the Williamsburg Bridge remembered her son as a “good kid,” as she urged fellow parents to be aware of the dangerous and potentially deadly trend. Zackery Nazario “was a very nice kid. Old soul, very mature. Good kid, good kid,” grieving mom Norma Nazario told PIX11 News. The teen boy was killed Monday evening while riding atop a Manhattan-bound J train headed over the Williamsburg Bridge, according to authorities. Nazario hit his head on a metal beam as the train


Very sad - he was just turning his life around. There are social media sites egging-on people who ride atop the subway car for fun.

The death and the description of the teen doesn't add up or make sense. The parents say the kid was an old soul and very mature, yet the way he died indicates just that he was just the opposite. I've been called an old soul my entire life, because I've always had the feeling that I've been here before. I didn't do stupid and sometimes dangerous things when I was younger simply because of that feeling. Yes, I may have missed out on doing some exciting things which at the time seemed cool, but I don't regret it one bit.

Feel sorry for his family, any child's death is a loss no matter how it happened. Fifteen year old children aren't very smart or mature and will often do things pretty dumb to our eyes. This is why we need to stop medical personnel and school officials from grooming and mutilating children because children don't have the life experience to know what they are doing.

Sometimes folks die when they do dangerous things. Sure it's sad. The thing that get's me, is the parents say, "The MTA needs to do something about this!". Um, hello! The MTA needs to do something? How about the parents need to teach their kids better. Or at least, the parents need to accept the fact that their son did dangerous things. But blaming it on the MTA is a stretch.

As I commented about a previous story, LIfe is an ongoing, daily intelligence test. This "adventure" is extremely stupid, and deadly. It gets difficult to gin up a lot of sympathy for people who do ultra stupid, terribly dangerous stunts like this and get harmed. Nobody forced these choice, and bad judgement can result in a much shorter life.

Oh please #5, stop it. And maybe poster #1 is posing the question so that other parents can learn from tragic situations like these. They seem to be happening more and more and, quite honestly, parents really do need to have a vested interest in what their child is doing. Talk with them, find out what they are doing, and really care about them. . . Give me a break - don't you think some of us are hurting inside because of what is all happening? Seems like nobody gives a hoot and we just have to accept what is going on.

With all due respect to Walgreens CFO James Kehoe, inventory shrinkage mostly at the hands of organized retail crime is still worth crying over if you are a retailer. Take Target (TGT), for example. "It [inventory shrinkage] was certainly a headwind [last year]," Target CFO Michael Fiddelke told Yahoo Finance on Tuesday (video above).

A measure the Federal Reserve watches closely to gauge inflation rose more than expected in January, indicating the central bank has more work to do to bring down prices. The personal consumption expenditures price index excluding food and energy increased 0.6% for the month, and was up 4.7% from a year ago, the Commerce Department reported Friday. Wall Street had been expecting respective readings of 0.5% and 4.4%. The core PCE gains were 0.4% and 4.6% in December. Including the volatile food and energy components, headline inflation increased 0.6% and 5.4% respectively, compared to 0.2% and 5.3% in December.

PORTLAND, Ore. — Winter storms sowed more chaos across the U.S. on Thursday, shutting down much of Portland with almost a foot of snow and paralyzing travel from parts of the Pacific Coast all the way to the northern Plains. The nearly 11 inches that fell in Portland amounted to the second snowiest day in the city's history. It took drivers by surprise, stalling traffic during the Wednesday evening rush hour and trapping motorists on freeways for hours. Some spent the night in their vehicles or abandoned them altogether as crews struggled to clear roads. Other commuters got off spun-out buses

The Ohio Department of Natural Resources (ODNR) has upped its estimate for the number of animals killed by the derailment of train cars carrying hazardous chemicals in East Palestine, Ohio, to nearly 44,000. The department estimates around 38,222 minnows were killed by the derailment within a 5-mile span, plus around 5,500 other species, including other small fish, amphibians, crayfish and macroinvertebrates, ODNR Director Mary Merks said in a statement. The original estimate was approximately 3,500 dead aquatic species, based on observations from Feb. 6-7, shortly after the Feb. 3 derailment.

Ukraine's insistence on reasserting control over the annexed Crimean Peninsula is controversial for United States citizens, exclusive polling for Newsweek has revealed. Throughout the past year, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has repeatedly committed to "liberating" Crimea from Russian control. The peninsula was illegally annexed by Moscow back in 2014. "Crimea is our land, our territory," Zelensky said in January. "It is our sea and our mountains. Give us your weapons—we will return what is ours." His words coincided with reports that the Biden administration was warming up to the idea of supporting Kyiv in its goal of retaking Crimea.

On Sunday night, Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis appeared on “Life, Liberty, and Levin” on Fox News, purportedly to promote his new book, The Courage to Be Free, which comes out this week. While DeSantis has not yet declared that he’s running for president, he certainly sounded like a man who’s making the case for his candidacy. Or, if not, he’s making a case for conservatism as the path to American success and prosperity— the subtitle of the book is “Florida’s Blueprint for America’s Revival.” As my colleague Stephen Green pointed out earlier today: DeSantis isn’t traveling to early presidential primary states like Iowa or New Hamphire, at least not yet.

The Washington, D.C. city council made it official on Monday, illegal immigrants and other non-citizens can now vote in local elections. The Democrat-run district that serves as the nation’s capital went so far as to allow foreign diplomats to cast a vote. That’s according to various reports that the city council passed the Local Resident Voting Rights Amendment Act after a 30-day congressional review period ended — the GOP-led House pushed to block the D.C. law from taking effect but the Democrat-run Senate let the clock expire without taking action. The law requires a person to be 18 and to have lived in D.C. for 30 days to be eligible to vote,

The clergy members — three rabbis, a Unitarian Universalist minister, an Episcopal Church priest, a Buddhist lama, and a United Church of Christ reverend — filed separate lawsuits against the State of Florida in August claiming that the law violates their rights to freedom of speech and freedom of religion. Those lawsuits have since been consolidated into one case.

Leading up to the election, Lightfoot also narrowly trailed Brandon Johnson, a member of the Cook County Board of Commissioners, by two points, and was in a dead heat with Democratic Rep.
