Feeding People in Need

The Hunger problem is real. Mostly children, older adults, seniors, and women. Add quite a few of working people also to hunger that list. In many cases, working multiple jobs, but still can’t make ends meet.
1 out of every 5 residents in America’s largest City, New York, needs an Emergency feeding program.
Many of us are only one crisis away from completely going under. The Food Bank for New York City is giving dignity to fellow human beings at a very difficult time, a time of need.
I tip my hat not just to the organization, but to the weekly 800 volunteers that step up.There is never anything wrong with declaring you need help in one capacity or another.

‘Bola Wrap:’ New Device Helps Police Restrain Suspects

Homeless and Victimized by Failed Special Education

Please meet 14 year old Elijah. I raised my left arm high up in the air and said to him “High five…can I get a high five.” Elijah complied.

Elijah’s pleasant demeanor and contagious smile stands out. 
Elijah is 14 years old but has fallen behind in school. He’s only in the 5th grade and reads on a 1st grade level. 

A homeless shelter I mentioned in a blog post is titled, the “Hotel Lynx.” Elijah and his mom Audry Martinez live there. They have been in NYC shelters for the last 2 and a half years. When talking to Elijah’s mom she told me that in a million years that she never thought she would find herself in this situation.
When we were in their living quarters on the fourth floor, of the “Hotel Lynx,” all of their possessions were in this one cramped room. You had to sign in with security in the lobby with photo I.D, and then security escorted you to an office, where you had to sign in again with photo I.D again

This was all a serious reality check. We were not in some college classroom discussing the Homeless issue. This time I wasn’t discussing the issue of homelessness on TV. This wasn’t a contrast of being homeless. This was a woman and her child fighting for survival. This time it felt like I had been punched me in my stomach.

It was in that office with two workers signing me in, that too…was so stunning. Seasoned reporter. I’m supposed to have seen it all, done it all, right?

In the far left of this small office were a few plastic crates that had typical foods for people that came in and may be hungry. Mothers and their children. One crate was full with oranges, and another had sliced wheat bread, wrapped individually.

Taxis Vs. Uber: 7 NYC Cabbies Have Committed Suicide

Here is Dominic Carter's actual story regarding Seven Taxi Driver Suicides in one Year. 

It REALLY IS UNFAIR WHAT IS HAPPENING TO NYC TAXI DRIVERS. They are in an UNFAIR FIGHT with UBER where the hands of Taxi drivers are tied behind their back. 

They are losing everything.

Kanye West stood on table at Apple Store after White House

The President should have NEVER permitted this meeting. It amounts to taking advantage of the mentally ill. After visiting the White House, Kanye West went to an Apple store, and gave a "keynote" speech atop a table. This is really sad.

With Kavanaugh, we have lost our Political Civility, all in the name of winning

Young People are the Move

These days, we (me and my buddies) are looking forward to, dear I say…our Golden years. Growing up, none of us ever thought about that. Certainly we didn’t talk about it. I was convinced that I would never live to see the age of 40. But then a very important friend told me to stop saying that because words are very powerful. It was a tremendous life lesson. I’m proud to say I made it past 40, and I’m now 54 years old. This is a piece that is about 24 hours I recently spent in Atlanta, Georgia.

"Dom - inating" the Courts - Corruption Watch

I just love the opening animation for this TV segment we just did. "Dom - inating" the Courts. When I was assigned to cover politics more than 30 years ago, BELIEVE me it was NOT a great assignment.

NOW EVERY reporter wants to cover politics, and politics is COOL. (smile) Now add corruption reporter to my title. This is part one of a special. "Corruption Watch"
