Growing Up in Morrisania in the Fifties: Oral History Reflections


Spending time with Charlotte Watson Manus and Paul Himmelstein and listening to them talk about their youth in Morrisania brought back vivid memories of growing up in New York working class neighborhoods where your block and your building were the most important communities you were part of, where fighting was a part of life, but when you could come home by public transportation at 2 AM without worrying about what would happen to you, and when the sounds of music were everywhere, coming out of stores and apartments and portable radios and, performed live, were something you and your friends aspired to do and in a few instances, did well enough to make a record. That was New York in the Fifties for young people growing up working class. whether you were Black, Puerto Rican, Jewish, Irish or Italian. There was poverty, there was crowding, there was violence, there was tracking in schools, and there was racism, which kept people out of neighborhoods where they weren't welcome, but there was also camaraderie, community and hope. And great great music being produced in YOUR neighborhood., Which is why there is so much nostalgia for those days among those of us still alive.

For every Ecommerce website that is a huge success, there are literally hundreds that fall by the wayside. Ecommerce is becoming the norm for consumers, but it’s important that they have as good an experience, if not better, than if they visited a store. If you want to sell your products online, there are some basic considerations – particularly to do with website design – which are crucial to help convert those website visitors into purchasers.ecommerce development dubai

Dx Man said...

Companies are gearing up to begin hiring again now that the economic downturn is taking a nice upswing. The great news for employers is that many workers see now as the time to consider advancing in their profession. Those people, along with some exceptional employees who lost their jobs to down-sizing during the recession, mean that employers have more prime candidates from which to choose than they’ve had in years.

전 세계 사람들은 농구를보고 놀면서 수많은 시간을 보내 게됩니다. 사실, 대부분의 플레이어는 여전히 게임에 대해 배울 수있는 것들이 더 재미있어집니다. 농구 통찰력을 얻으려면 독서를 계속하십시오.

많은 사람들이 방어가 승리의 열쇠라는 것을 깨닫지 못하고 게임의 공격적인 부분에만주의를 기울입니다. 방어는 농구 경기에서이기는 것입니다. 공격은 칭찬과 관심을 모두 얻지 만, 좋은 방어력이 없으면 모든 농구 팀이 패배하게됩니다.

머리가 올라가고 눈이 앞으로 오는 동안 물이 뚝뚝 떨어지십시오. 드리블 중 어떤 이유로 든 볼을보고 있다면 연습을 충분히하지 않은 것입니다. 어디를 가든 볼이 함께 갈 수 있습니다. 당신의 사서함에 걸어? 공을 드리블하십시오. 공에주의를 기울이면 게임의 나머지 부분에주의를 기울이지 않습니다.

점프 기술을 개발할 때는 웨이트 트레이닝 사용을 제한하십시오. 너무 큰 부피의 근육으로 무게를 줄이면 점프 샷에 부정적인 영향을 줄 수 있습니다. 일부 사격 경비원들은 무기를 너무 많이 사용하여 필드 목표의 백분율을 낮추기 시작했습니다.

상대를 속이는 데 관심이 있으십니까? 백 패스를 시도하십시오. 공을 사용하려면 가장 지배적 인 손에 공을 넣으십시오. 그런 다음 공을 등 뒤로 제자리에 당기십시오. 공을 전달할 방향으로 손목으로 빠르게 튕 깁니다. 이것은 상대 팀을 혼동시키는 매우 유용한 트릭입니다.

농구는 개인적인 신체 활동이나 팬 광경으로 즐거움의 원천입니다. 게임을 향상 시키거나 이해력을 높이려면 항상 스포츠에 대해 최대한 많은 지식을 얻는 것이 좋습니다. 이 기사에서는 필요한 팁을 제공했습니다파워볼사이트.

Zonder al te veel poespas gewoon een nieuwe, strakke en frisse wandafwerking? Dan is het spuiten van latex muurverf een goede uitkomst. En ook dan moet je bij Latex Spuiten XXL zijn. Het hanteren van de speciale spuiten voor latexverf hebben wij ons in de loop der jaren eigen gemaakt. Door de spuittechniek ontstaat er een egale structuur, die een stuk strakker is dan bij het sauswerk met een traditionele verfroller. Bovendien is de klus een stuk sneller geklaard – ondanks dat we de werkzaamheden minstens zo gepassioneerd als traditioneel binnenschilderwerk uitvoeren. Latex spuiten is daarom doorgaans voordeliger dan latexen met de verfroller. Disclaimer: dit is afhankelijk per situatie en oppervlakte.

Pest elimination services removal expert pest control specialists who can tailor their pest control services based on your needs and the needs of your business, employees and customers. We will work with you to create an effective pest control solution for a variety of pests.
Ants leave a scented trail that other ants follow. Sweeping or mopping isn’t enough to eliminate the scent.Killing the ants passing by will not eliminate the problem from its roots. The main source of the colonies is the queen. In order to find the nest and the queen a trail of ants must be followed. It is important to identify the ants taking food crumbs and following them to find the nest. Once the nest has been found, be careful not to disturb the worker ants taking the food to the nest.
Sugar ants love a dirty sink and the water you leave them to help wash down the leftovers. Make sure to rinse out any dishes you're going to leave in the sink over night. And when you do clean the dishes, make sure you rinse and wipe down the entire sink to make certain you haven't left residual sweets, food, or moisture behind. If you're really picky about cleaning, you might even want to try pouring a little bleach down the drain to make sure the smell of rotting food doesn't attract more ants to your kitchen. Dish drains should also be emptied and wiped down before the end of the day.
Little black ants have also garnered the name sugar ant, though their real name is, well, Little Black Ants. Not a lot is known about Little Black Ants, except that they eat just about anything (including other insects) and they really like rotting wood and dark spaces. Getting rid of little black ants, however, despite how little is known about them from a biological perspective, is as easy as getting rid of sugar ants. Sweet baits can be used to control little black ants indoors, and protein baits can be used to control little black ants outdoors.
Look in attics, bathrooms, and exterior walls. When you find the nest, spray it with an insecticide labeled for indoor use.Trim back bushes, shrubs, and trees that brush against your siding or roof. These provide a bridge for ants to reach your home. Avoid stacking firewood next to the house.

What is the Virus Outbreak Data Network (VODAN)? VODAN is a GO FAIR Implementation Network set up to help fight the COVID-19 Corona virus, that is causing a worldwide epidemic. The Implementation Network VODAN is a step to establish the Internet of FAIR Data and Services. FAIR stands for human and machine-readable digital data objects that are Findable, Accessible, Interoperable and Reusable. Accessibility is fully compliant with regulatory and governance frameworks, including personal data protection and ethical considerations based on the principle to Do no Harm.
Making data and metadata FAIR ensures that these data are discoverable on the Internet of FAIR Data and Services. Central tot his approach is the establishment of FAIR Data Points (FDPs), for COVID-19 relevant digital data objects. Opening up FAIR (meta)data by publishing them on a FDP allows algorithms to search these (meta)data, looking for patterns. The Internet of FAIR Data and Services is a distributed data discovery network; data are NOT moved, but algorithms going over the internet can find the data.
