Community Combines on Wish List

Monday, November 17th, 2014

When the small group of community members was asked if they were happy with the way the government spends their money, the room was silent. Hands shot up moments later when residents were asked what changes they wanted to see in their communities.

On November 10, Councilman Mark Treyger wrapped up the last of three community assemblies as part of District 47’s progressive participatory budgeting [PB] initiative. Treyger has allocated $1 million of discretionary funds for residents’ ideas. District 47 – which includes Gravesend, Bensonhurst, Sea Gate and Coney Island – is among 24 of the city’s 50 districts to sign up for PB.

Calming Local Ebola Fears

Saturday, October 25th, 2014

The Ebola virus was first detected in Guinea, West Africa, nine months ago. Since then, more than 9,000 people across the world have contracted the virus and 5,000 people have died from it.

The first confirmed case in New York – a doctor who recently returned from a medical mission – launched efforts to assuage concerns and educate the public on how the virus is spread.

Meanwhile, Dr. Craig Spencer remains in isolation at Bellevue Hospital as authorities are retracing his movements in the days before his diagnosis – including a trip to a Brooklyn bowling alley.

AudioFiles: Quality of Life

Monday, October 20th, 2014

Our latest episode is all about living well, dying well – and the people trying to make things a little better for us along the way. We have stories about keeping the faith with spies in your midst, entrepreneurs fighting crime with coffee and a town that thinks we might all be better off with a bit of lithium in the water.

Newark Star-Ledger Jets beat reporter Dom Cosentino and Huffington Post writer Sarah Beauchamp talk feminism beyond the NFL scandal, and the band IndigeSoul joins us live with some ethnic global grooves.
