With the temperatures heating up, we all need ways to keep cool during the scorching hot months of July and August. Sitting home in the air conditioning is a nice thought, but few can enjoy that luxury seven days a week.
For starters, keep a close eye out for the following heat-related symptoms: headache, light-headedness, fatigue, anxiety, nausea, vomiting and low pulse rate. Elderly residents are more susceptible to heat stroke; check in on any senior citizen who live close by and lend them a hand or offer some advice on staying cool, especially during the hottest times of the day between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m.
I submit that this, teaching students to dance, represents a poor use of our tax dollars when we as a district are struggling educationally.
Lacrosse has been a staple of athletics on Long Island for decades and this Saturday, the Long Island Lizards will host former Manhasset lacrosse player and legendary National Football League running back Jim Brown at Hofstra’s Shuart Stadium.
Brown’s career numbers for his football career are, quite literally, off the charts, as few running backs even came close to matching his average yards per game (104.3) and yards per carry (5.2). He was named an All American at Syracuse University for lacrosse, scoring 43 goals in 10 games his senior year.
Contemporary culture in America contains a disturbing amount of violence.
Many young people across the country will probably watch a violent movie and play a violent video game today.
Unfortunately, violence in modern entertainment is somewhat unavoidable. Does all that visual consumption feed into what ends up being the horrendous crimes reported in the news media, as we have on the front page of this newspapers today?
On June 23, 2012 The Westbury Union Free School District held its High School graduation at the air-conditioned Tilles Center on the campus of C. W. Post University. The graduates, parents and guests were happy and proud.
The Tilles Center at C. W. Post University has been the site of Westbury’s High School graduations for over 10 years. Westbury’s High School graduation ceremony in terms of venue is truly exceptional.
The Carle Place community is saying goodbye to its high school principal, Neil Connolly, after 37 years serving the school district.
Though the quantity of the years is a tremendous figure, many could argue that the quality of those years is the more impressive feat.
A woman fighting the fires of war on three continents, as a foreign war correspondent, is who she was and what she did. Marie Colvin – a Long Island native and Oyster Bay High School graduate – had been the targeted victim of Syrian despot Bashar Assad’s artillery. Colvin’s days of wake and funeral were spent celebrating her heroic life.
At the end, as family returned to their vehicles, I thrust my hand through an open window where Rosemarie, her mother, was sitting. I held her hand and said, “Thank you,” all the while musing about the fruit that doesn’t drop far from the tree. And what the priest had said about the potato.
There’s a fine line between spending time and spending quality time.
I once played golf with a stranger who told me, almost implored me, to play golf as often as I can with my dad, because you never know when he won’t be able to join you on the course anymore.
The American Lung Association joined the World Health Organization (WHO) in celebrating World No Tobacco Day on May 31. This year’s theme, Tobacco Industry Interference, focused on the need to expose and counter the industry’s increasingly aggressive attempts to undermine global tobacco control efforts.
What we’re seeing in New York, and throughout the country, is the point of sale product display marketing that is cleverly designed to appeal to children. On World No Tobacco Day, attention was drawn to the fact that when these tobacco displays are placed prominently at checkout counters next to candy and gum and outside of stores at kids’ eye level, it encourages them to smoke.
For me, in this particular order, it’s Rangers, Jets and then Mets. I’m a closet Islanders fan but the pastime factor far outweighs that of any allegiance there.
