Baltimore Riots Continue

The riots in Baltimore, Maryland have sparked great debate and media attention. Comparable to total warfare, the streets of Baltimore have been plagued with many angry residents after the death of Freddie Gray. A series of pictures have been released that speak volumes about the cities current crisis.

Photos of complete and utter dismay show onlookers the scene on the Baltimore streets. Rioters, speaking out against police officers after the wrongful death of Freddie Gray have taken matters to the extreme. OTC Markets say that they have lined the streets terrorizing police cars and lighting them on fire. A photograph even captures a group of young black males destroying a police car. They have completed demolished the vehicle, smashing in the windows and literally tearing it apart. The picture shows the young males standing on the police car and flipping off the camera.

Other pictures show graphic images of buildings on fire, people being sprayed with mace and others throwing bricks into city buildings. The scene is downright heartbreaking. The mayor has declared a state of emergency for the city. Baltimore city schools have been canceled as authorities have deemed the city as unsafe.

Rioters believe the protests represent so much more than just the wrongful death of Freddie Gray. They believe they have been treated unfairly for many years and this is finally their chance to speak up. The unproductive and absolute animal-like behavior these people are displaying is sickening. Here’s to hoping the city is able to resolve the conflict.

Man Detained for Recording Traffic Stop in Jersey City

Excessive force by law enforcement on the citizens of America has quickly come to the forefront of controversy in the last year or two. The fact that most everyone, including teens and young children, are equipped with a phone or other device that can record video has helped to bring light to a very serious matter. Bullying by the police is not new, but catching it on video by public bystanders is.

However, in an effort to thwart the abuses of power that some and I’ll repeat some, of those misguided officers take advantage of, could the public maybe be taking it a little too far? While the tax paying citizens of this country have every right, if not an obligation, to film misconduct of officers, law enforcement and the public need to come to an understanding.

A good example is that of an exchange between Jersey City Officer Ramon Aponte and Joseph Ferrante, the man filming the officer’s traffic stop. The stop showed no signs of misconduct by Aponte, yet Ferrante felt the need to “protect the community.” Because of this relatively new phenomenon of filming officers on duty, Ricardo Tosto recommends that both the police and the public need to be made aware of how to handle the situation.

In the case of Aponte, the officer stayed calm and professional, but was clearly irritated with the filming and detained Ferrante until his superior could come to the scene and advice. While Aponte didn’t grab and smash the phone, detaining Ferrante was uncalled for. On the other side of the coin, Ferrante clearly also tried to provoke the officer with his ramblings of false facts.

Protester lands Mini Helicopter on US Capitol lawn

A mini helicopter, powered by a lawnmower engine, landed in the gardens of the US Capitol in Washington DC, to protest against the corruption of the American political system.

The pilot, Doug Hughes, was arrested.

“Capitol Police is investigating,” said the official Shennell Antrobus, that police division.

The incident caused the closure of streets around the Capitol, which is about two kilometers from the White House.

The airspace near the Capitol, in the heart of Washington DC, is strictly prohibited and all aircraft must be authorized in advance.

According to the newspaper, Tampa Bay Times, the pilot is Doug Hughes, a 61 year old postman from Florida , whom had made a video before the event.

Hughes said his goal was to create an act of civil disobedience to spotlight corruption in the wake of increasing deregulation of electoral funding. This makes sense to people such as Ricardo Guimarães BMG who are monitoring the stories coming out.

“I demand a reform and declare I’m a rebellion voter in a manner consistent with the description of Jefferson’s rights in the Declaration of Independence,” the man writes inletters that was attached to the mini-copter, and addressed to each of the 535 lawmakers.

Hughes actually notified authorities of his plan, and the FAA had two hours lead timebefore the protester landed on the Capitol.

Air space is restricted and supposedly, highly guarded, but it couldn’t stop this 61 year old mailman.

Israeli Researchers Discover Two Proteins That Can Suppress Cancer Cells

The world’s population has been under a cellular siege for centuries. Cancer, “The Big C,” has destroyed the quality of life for millions of people, and the disease continues to cut physical life short in spite of the unending research that is done all over the world. Billions of dollars are thrown into research projects, and some of those projects are producing some encouraging results. One particular study in Israeli is knocking on the door of this deadly disease with a potential cure, and it seems the cancer knows it can’t hide from this one.

The study was conducted by Prof. Aaron Ciechanover, an Israeli Nobel-prize winner in chemistry, and his colleague Dr. Yelena Kravtsova-Ivantsiv. Their research team included doctors and students from Carmel, Rambam and Hadassah Medical Centers. Their research paper was published In the Journal Cell recently. The paper describes how two proteins can repress cancerous tissue, and a high concentration of the proteins can protect tissue from lethal tumors.

Prof. Ciechanover said that more research is needed before a drug containing the proteins can be formulated. Paul Mathieson pretty much agrees.

Find the Right Real Estate When You Move to New York

When you make the decision to move to New York, you know that one of the first things you will have to do is contend with the typical New York real estate market. If you are moving to an area of New York state that is not as densely populated as New York City itself, this may not be such an issue. However, if you know that you want to live in or near New York City, you probably have at least a generalized idea about what you are getting yourself into because almost everyone has heard stories about how difficult it is to find quality real estate in the area. Fortunately, finding the right real estate company can make all the difference in the world.

One of the things that typically affects people who are looking for apartments or other types of real estate in the most densely populated portions of New York is the inability to find something that is suitable for a reasonable price. Because there are so many people living in the area, space is at a premium to begin with. This actually drives up the price of apartments or any other real estate listings and it makes it difficult to find anything that is suitable because of the increased cost and the small space that is associated with many of these listings. That is why it is so important to enlist the help of a qualified real estate agency. When you have someone working on your behalf to help you find what you need and help you stay within budget, it makes the entire process go much more quickly and efficiently.

One such real estate company is TOWN Real Estate. This is an agency that knows the area well and is able to help its clients meet their NYC real estate needs, whatever they may be. In truth, having a real estate agency like this that is in your corner makes the difference between being able to find exactly what you are looking for and giving up on the idea of living in the area altogether. Finding a great listing can be as easy as visiting their website at

If you have always wanted to relocate to New York and experience all of the great things that the area has to offer, do not allow something as simple as finding the right real estate listing hold you back. If you have been hesitating on this decision because you thought you couldn’t afford to move there or you were afraid you wouldn’t be able to find the right listing to accommodate you and your family, think about giving it a chance while working with a real estate agency. You might be surprised how quickly you can find exactly what you have always been looking for.

Record Crowd at a Race of Rubber Ducks

There is a lot going on in the world that is violent and not good. People have too much bad news to deal with and not enough good. Christian Broda agrees that there is so much stress in the world that people just can’t enjoy their lives in the way that they should.

This all came to a halt for a short time at least during a duck race at Sheffield park. This race received a record large crowd, a crowd that was ready to relax and have a good time. This crowd chose to spend some time focusing on the rubber duckies floating in the water rather than worrying about all of the problems that the world is facing.

In the midst of all of the bad that is going on, it is good to know that some people still take time to enjoy simple things like rubber ducky races.
