🧵This article from @nytimes
on #voting machines from ES&S (@essvote) applying for use in #NY focuses on #misinformation.
But what about misinformation from ES&S. Like they lied to @NYSBOE
about where they had pending lawsuits……
Facts about what will happen if #NY uses all-touchscreen #voting machines.
- They will "cost a small fortune to purchase & maintain."
- They cost $10,000 each, double the cost of a standard scanner + you have to buy A LOT more. HIgher costs x more machines = OUCH for taxpayers Image
How many more #voting machines are used w/all-touchscreen (all-BMD) systems?

#BMD = ballot-marking device, All systems have BMDs for voters who want to use them. We don't all need to.

@OSET estimates all-BMD systems require 5 TIMES as many voting machines. Costs go up not down. Image

They always show you what it’s like to get into a NYC hot nightclub. This is what it’s like (and why it is sometimes hard) to leave. #nyc #nightlife…
Most of you have never experienced, even less, know about, the nightclub nightlife degen Mike tucked deep inside.
And…maybe never will. This is rare.
I am having a lot of fun this evening.

I intend to do this more.

26 juli 1653 sluit Adriaen van der Donck een contract met plateelbakker Hendrik Claasz van Rotterdam. Claasz zal in Nieuw Nederland 'op de beste ende bequaemste maniere doenlink sijnde asch, pot-asch, ende alle aanklevende nieuwe wercken en inventien' gaan maken. #alleakten #nyc ImageImage
Als het een succes wordt, zal ook Adriaens vrouw op kosten van Van der Donck naar Nieuw-Nederland mogen overkomen. Image
Hovenier Gommaart Pouls van Antwerpen wordt een dag later ingehuurd om in de tuinen van Van der Donck te gaanwerken.
In 1645 kreeg Van der Donck een groot stuk land, als dank voor zijn rol in de vredesonderhandelingen met de Inheemse bevolking. Dit noemde hij Colen Donck. Image

We have finally arrived at the first 2023 official #Manhattanhenge sunset! The weather looks excellent so get your cameras ready. Are you wondering what this phenomenon is? Why it happens? Where you should watch from? I've got a whole thread for you on it #NYC @AMNH Image
#Manhattanhenge is a name given to the days of the year when the sun sets perfectly aligned with the grid of Manhattan. So perfectly aligned with the cross streets where iconic buildings will beautifully frame the sun just as it touches the horizon. I also call it a "grid kiss" Image
Why does #Manhattanhenge happen? #NYC is a grid -- with 90 degree angles between the avenues and cross streets. At sunset you look west-ish across fairly wide cross streets and the Hudson river toward a relatively flat NJ skyline.

Growing up in #Toronto, I held #NYC in awe. Per the joke, one Torontonian changes the lightbulb, the other goes New York to make sure lightbulbs are still in. I had a *great* place to stay in the City: my cousin Maxine's rent-controlled place in a midtown doorman building.

Max was impossibly glamorous: a perfectly coiffed office manager at Colgate-Palmolive who earned an anthropology degree at CUNY, volunteered at the Brooklyn Zoo, and knew every trick for getting cheap tickets for museums, galleries and shows.

As the House Judiciary Cmt'e holds a hearing in Manhattan this morning, one thing you may not have noticed 👀 but want to be paying attn to is not about violent crime numbers or partisan politics, but the racist & antisemitic language that's seeped in. Let me explain 🧵
More and more, we’ve heard prominent folks, including Members of Congress and their allies, refer to Manhattan’s elected Attorney General Alvin Bragg as “Soros funded” or “Soros owned”.

What does this even mean?
Bragg is the 1st African-American elected to this role & is responsible for enforcing #NYC laws. And Soros, a Jew from Hungary who survived the Holocaust as a child, has become a big funder – among many big dollar funders in our politics – of democracy/anti-communism + education.

Folks, I have a full time prof job, with something like 35 paying students, from UG to PhD to officially advise. Plus research, teaching, other service.

I don't have the bandwidth to advise complete strangers on their or kids' applications. Please stop DMing for that. 🙏
I mean if it's a limited question or something very specific, sure, I can answer. But asking me to meet or zoom with you or your kid and "mentor" you through the application, sorry, that's a lot of labor for strangers.

Same for moving to NYC. I can't executive produce your move.
All these threads I post about college life or lectures or details about NYC are just me getting some thoughts out of my head that some others might find interesting or useful.

They aren't advertising a consulting service.

Please think a bit before putting me in an award place.

A Trump supporter calls out ‘Shaman’ for acting “stupid” and “crazy” —

“What you doing bro’?! We don’t do that! I think you’re a Democrat bro!”


Shaman: “They said Trump was a fake too!”

“I’m watching you bro! You better be for Trump!”
After more digging, can officially confirm lots of suspicion surrounding the authenticity of this ‘Shaman Trump supporter’ to actually be aspiring actor Danny Wolverton aka ‘specialhead’ from Brooklyn, NY who appeared on America’s Got Talent 9 years ago and produces ‘viral skits’……

This is a regular #NYC thing.

The mail piled up for a while.

If you know the neighbors are young, you just shrug and move on.

What if you know that the neighbors are a senior couple, one of whom is disabled? And who keep to themselves?

For me the anxiety built slowly.
I've known this couple over a decade, but I've not really known them well like I've known other neighbors. So I don't have a phone number, even through Sandy and lockdown, for them like I do for many other neighbors.

It took a few days for the pile to build up as you can guess.
Just as the pile built up to a level making me uneasy enough to go find our veteran building Super, I saw him outside the door, ringing the doorbell.

"I was about to ask you", we both said almost simultaneously.

Yeah, we were both thinking the same thing. 😬😬
