Lauren Greenberg, a senior at Syosset High School, is quite knowledgeable about skin care. Her father is Dr. Stephen Greenberg, a prominent plastic surgeon, so Lauren has been exposed to a wealth of skin care knowledge growing up. When listening to her friends, she quickly realized that there is a void in skin care products for teenagers who either neglect their skin entirely or use products and procedures that are meant for adults and are too harsh for still developing teenage skin.
More than 120 dogs and puppies were rescued from over-crowded municipal shelters in California and Oklahoma and brought to North Shore Animal League America Headquarters in Port Washington. Hopping aboard the inaugural journey of the Mutt-i-grees Express, the dogs received a ticket for a new life, and hopefully, many of them will find homes for the holidays.
It was in the spirit of the season of giving that North Shore Animal League America (NSALA) launched the Mutt-i-grees Express, a humane relocation program that transports animals to a new life. Since 1991, NSALA’s humane relocation efforts have rescued more than 150,000 dogs, cats, puppies and kittens, and the launch of the Mutt-i-grees Express represents the beginning of a new era.
1. Derek Jeter (1995-present) – What more can you say about this slam-dunk future Hall of Famer who is the only player to get 3,000 hits (and counting) wearing pinstripes, led his team to five championships (so far), is a 13-time All-Star, a 5-time Gold Glove and Silver Slugger winner, 1996 AL Rookie of the Year and 2000 World Series MVP?
2. Phil Rizzuto (1941-1956) –The diminutive middle infielder was known for having great hands, having turned 1,217 double-plays, second only to fellow Baseball Hall of Famer Luke Appling. Likewise, his career field average of .968 is second only to the great Lou Boudreau. Considered one of the game’s greatest bunters, the man nicknamed Scooter was the 1950 AL MVP and no less than Ted Williams was quoted as saying that if Rizzuto had played for the Red Sox, they would have won all the games they lost to the Yankees.
Being an illusionist generally takes years to perfect in order to entertain hundreds of people during shows. For 13-year-old Tyler Raciti, however, magic has come naturally to him since the age of 8, when he and his father, Richard, began performing acts under the name Amagicnation.
They are the only father-and-son magic act in the nation, making their shows all that more unique. Their shows have become increasingly popular, as they have been performing weekly at resorts in the Poconos and at upstate New York’s Rocking Horse Ranch. They also perform at private parties and country clubs throughout Long Island. No matter the size of the gig, the Raciti magic act will find a way to accommodate their customers.
Making a difference is much easier said then done especially in the world we live in today. However, 17-year-old Tyler Cohen found a way to help others one step at a time, and make a small act of kindness have an enormous result. Caps Count!, a charitable project that collects gently used caps, hats and visors to ship them to orphanages around the world, was created and started by Cohen when he was just 16 years old. What started off as a good-hearted thought developed into something that mattered to many different individuals.
The August after his junior year at Herricks High School, a trip to Modell’s Lake Sucess store changed everything when the Albertson resident brought up the idea to place a donation box outside of the store so people could drop off unwanted caps to send to underprivileged kids in different countries. Executive of Modell’s, John Borrelli, took interest in Cohen’s initiative, and helped put Caps Count! on the map by linking him and Modell’s on Facebook, placing donation boxes in five different stores throughout Long Island and Queens, followed by a generous donation of 1,000 caps as proceeds for the charity. Modell’s continues to work with the teen in efforts to continue Caps Count! and help it evolve into something greater.
