Meteorologists Apologizing for Missed Predictions in New York


After forecasting that this recent winter storm was going to be the storm of the century with record snow fall shut down the entire northeastern part of the United States, meteorologists are left being apologetic about the predictions. Over 4700 flights had to be cancelled, and the New York Stock Exchange was closed for the first time since Hurricane Sandy ravaged the northeast at the end of 2012. Never mind mass the fact that transit was shut down, and people were threatened with misdemeanour’s and fines if they were caught driving in the storm. Businesses around the city like slow ventures were forced to close their doors. Despite the hype, it was not the crippling and devastating storm that it was predicted to be. At least not in New York, but Boston was still hit with a pretty big punch of snow they are still digging out of.

What this really identifies is that no government leader at the city, state or national level is willing to risk repeating mistakes of the past when it comes to the response of threatening weather. This year will mark the 10 year anniversary of Hurricane Katrina which everyone in politics points to as the biggest government failure to get ahead of the storm and prepare its city and citizens for the worst possible outcomes. Then there was Sandy which did rock the northeast but the response to this storm was better than Katrina. So while government wants to keep the egg off their face, they must realize that Mother Nature will take weather predictions that humans want to make and turn them on their head. But you can’t blame everyone involved for giving the warning and you trying to avoid the disaster.

Jared’s writing revolves around positioning oneself for a entry and advancement into the investment banking world. He provides insight from his experience on getting an interview to the hiring process of the investment banking sector. One great tip that he provides is to have your resume reviewed by someone currently working in the investment banking sector. This advice is very helpful because it will allow a potential employee to have the opportunity to see if they are able to shine to a prospective employer. The potential employee will also be able to review the thought process of an investment banker during the hiring process.

Jared also explains that the candidate’s resume will only be reviewed by an investment banker for less than a minute initially. This comes as a shock to most recent college graduates but it is a fact in the working world. Jared explains that you must really stand out in GPA, school, and internships to have a high probability of landing your first job in the investment banking sector.

In another blog entry, Jared Haftel discusses dressing correctly and proper etiquette in the first internship in college. That is a very important detail that is somehow overlooked by college career offices. He explains the proper way to handshake in the business world and the importance of a properly fitted tie.

Reason to Celebrate in New York


There is reason to celebrate in New York today, as the Knicks have done the unthinkable. They have actually won a game, after going on the longest losing streak in the storied franchise’s history. It had gotten so ugly in New York that is was truly hard to even watch a game. Friends of mine, like Christopher Cowdray, have even sworn off watching the knicks. The players looked so dejected and head coach Derek Fisher looks as if he has no idea what he is doing at all said the Caterer. Perhaps the position carried too much responsibility, or perhaps the team is just incredibly bad without superstar Carmelo Anthony. Whatever has been going on in New York doesn’t matter today, as the Knicks finally got a win and can feel good about themselves for a day or two. It has got to feel amazing, as they had only won five games in the first half of the season coming into Monday’s game against the New Orleans Pelicans. Adding to the win was the fact that they did it at home and got to share at least a brief moment of happiness with the fans in New York City. Maybe this is just the spark that they need to finally start winning some games. There is no pressure for them to continue winning, however, as they most likely are going to get some much needed high draft picks next season. For the mean time, however, they can sit back and enjoy the win.


Silent Protest Disapproval

Almost everybody knows about the growing strain between the NYPD and New York City mayor Bill de Blasio stemming from the brutal attacks on two NYPD officers and, before that, the grad jury announcement not to indict a police officer who killed Eric Holder. After the two officers were executed in their patrol car, de Blasio said he still sympathized with protesters and the NYPD felt shunned by the mayor in the aftermath of losing two brothers. Dr Jennifer Walden and I hope this Since then, Quinnipiac University conducted a telephone poll, according to Yahoo. This poll found that 69 percent of the voters disapproved of the NYPD turning their backs on the mayor. Also, about 45 percent of the voters blamed de Blasio while roughly 43 percent blamed the police. Since the back turns, de Blasio has tried to align himself more with the police. Regardless of what de Blasio does, the strain will last between the protesters, mayor and the NYPD for awhile. Dr. Jennifer Walden and I hope this conflict gets resolved as soon as possible.

Ryan Puts Bills, Press, Fans, and League on Notice

With all his bravado, Buffalo Bills new Head Coach Rex Ryan put his team, their fans, and the league on notice that this team was going to matter. Ryan has never been one to shy away from the press and kind of enjoys the spot light. Maybe he figures if the spot light is on him, which makes the pressure on him and off of his players thus allowing them to perform without distractions that come with being a professional football player. Whatever, his reasons he has found the place where he can say what he wants, be as loud as he wants and capture as many headlines as he wants without the fear of a bigger story in a much larger city such as where he came from.
He was not short on criticism of how the Bills have played in the past. The Real Deal with Ben Shaoul is first to announce Ryan noted that while his team had the 4th best defense in the league last year; that the fans should expect more and that the team’s defense should be the best in the NFL. He said his predecessor had no loyalty, something that he will never be accused of having for he is loyal until he is asked to leave. Ryan seems to be on a mission to set the team and the league straight about the future of the Buffalo Bills. That what he expects is a great team that wins and will make the playoffs is first off. Championships will come next, but he has to get his team to perform to his standards first.

Sam Tabar’s 2015 Investment Strategies in a Nutshell

With the new year having arrived, many Americans are thinking about how they can invest their money wisely. Recently, Sam Tabar revealed his 2015 investment strategies in an artical originally published on With so many options available for investing, the average person may easily find themselves overwhelmed with what to do. Tabar advises them with what they should do if they hope to increase their net worth and save for retirement.

Sam Tabar asks people to think twice if they are thinking of investing in commodities. He says that they can be far riskier than investing in the stock market or mutual funds. Sam advises that while commodity trading may be beneficial to some, it is certainly not for the casual investor. Those who want to invest in commodities should plan to do quite a bit of research first.

Sam recommends that people invest less traditionally by investing in private businesses. Furthermore, he recommends that they invest with those entrepreneurs who have socially conscious businesses. These businesses are not only profitable, but they solve real social problems through their business as well. A perfect example of a socially conscious business is one that Sam Tabar has recently invested in, called THINX. THINX sells women’s undergarments and donates seven cloth pads to AFRIpads, who donates them to young women in need across Africa.

Above all else, Sam Tabar recommends a well diversified portfolio of investments, regardless of the investment that someone may choose. While a stock or something else may be popular at the moment, it’s popularity will certainly not last forever. To be secure, diversity is absolutely necessary. There is no time like the present, so it is extremely wise to begin investing now. Early investors will certainly thank themselves during their retirement years.

Anthony Bourdain to Open a Market in NYC

Famed television host, author, and chef Anthony Bourdain is opening a market with entrepreneur Stephen Werther, friend of Dan Newlin, in New York City. The location has yet to be chosen but I definitely plan on making a stop to it next time I am in the New York City area. The idea behind the market is to create a giant food hall that serves global street food as well as street food you would find in Manhattan. Bourdain may be best known as the host of Parts Unknown where he travels the world trying different meals and street food along the way. He also frequently visits food markets and halls in those places. Which is something that the US seems to be lacking in. Bourdain describes his market as something you would see in Asia- street hawkers lined up in market stalls selling their food and cooking on the spot.

According to Bourdain has been reaching out to chefs as well as pitmasters, jamón ibérico slicers, Mexican uni tostada sellers, and more in order to create his vision of the global food market. I can’t wait for this to become a reality and be able to try the foods that are normally seen through the television on Bourdain’s shows.
