Sunday Sundown Rundown - 1/18/15

3 Up

1. Belgium Terror Raid - This obviously gets the top spot this week after Beglium forces raided terrorists within their borders and foiled a planned plot similar to what what we've recently seen in France. Kudos to all the men and women and intelligence in keeping our world safe. 

2. Man Survives Being Crushed - This is a remarkable story. After a 20 car pile up, a mans car is crushed between two eighteen wheelers. He somehow survives the wreckage. You have to seen the photo to truly understand this story. 

3. Kings heater Restoration - In a nation where we constantly replace old beauty with new and trendy, it's great to see the legendary Kings Theater in Brooklyn, NY restored. After four decades of being abandoned, the theater is now a place of destination for events. 

3 Down

1. ISIS Little Boy - The thought of ISIS allowing 13 year old boys to execute captives is appalling and exemplary of this groups true evil. 

2. Worst Mom Ever - Seriously, what kind of sicko sets their new born baby on fire in the middle of the street? Ugh...

2. Miss Universe Instagram - Not a fan of beauty pageants (don't see the purpose), but this recent issue of a selfie including Miss Lebanon and Miss Israel is annoying, obnoxious, and ridiculous. Get over it. A selfie doesn't mean political agreement. Just a picture folks. Calm down. 

1 Stupid

1. Greg Anthony - Prostitutes? Seriously? Come on Greg. Way to flush your career down the toilet. 

1 Waste of an Article

1. Dumb Point - Saw this and had to share. So she ate a lot of food to prove that fat people are just lazy? Ummm, OK. Thanks for the ground breaking news.

1. Eluide Kipchoge - I'm always impressed with any running feat. But come on! This dude just broke the World record for not just any running feat - for a freakin marathon! He finished the Berlin Marathon in 2 hours 1 Minute and 39 seconds!! Kipchoge ran his first 10 kilometers in 29:21! That's just insane. So insane.

2. John Legend - Props this dude for completing the EGOT, and of course, becoming the first black person to do so. That is some big time, historical, accomplishment-stuff.

3. Tiger Woods - Do I care about golf? Not really. Not even when Woods was in his prime. Yet, who doesn't love a great comeback sports story? I'm still not OK with how he treated his ex-wife, but I'm always up for a redemption story. I do like seeing people rebound.

3 Down

1. Florence Death Toll - With the numbers rising as the days go by, it's a shame to see the aftermath of such a storm in the Carolinas. Here is to hoping we can get help to the region sufficiently.

2. Kavan…

The Pondering 10 – All-Time Animated Cartoons

Every individual enjoyed cartoons as a child. While today’s youth may not have many options, or even care for cartoons, for generations in the past, cartoons provided many hours of laughter, memories, and overall entertainment. In the following Pondering 10 list, yours truly will name my all-time favorite cartoons. This list is by far the hardest list compiled hear on the DP due to the enormous amount of cartoons that were great, as well as putting together a profound and honest list based on quality and interest. In doing so, I have left out such cartoons such as Family Guy and King of The Hill, as these are more connected to the present time rather than childhood memories. Also, please keep in mind, the following cartoons have must be noted as an honorable mention: Duck Tales, Goof Troop, The Jetsons, Thundercats, Darkwing Duck, Tale Spin, Gargoyles, Batman, Pinky and the Brain, Speed Racer, Doug, Garfield, Bobby’s World, Sonic The Hedgehog, Ghostbusters, Tailspin, Captain Planet, …

True Tales From Parks and Recreation - Public Bait and Switch?

Note: I work for a park slowly in continuing development in Manhattan that is five miles along the waterfront of the Hudson River. As a Public Programs Coordinator, yours truly handles anything public related in regards to permitting (athletic facilities, film shoots, photo shoots, weddings, and other small gatherings), and of course, dealing with any questions or inquiries from the public. The following series will present stories, e-mails, phone calls, conversations, interactions, and sights I've seen from the people of New York City in regards to a public park. And yes, these are all real! And are all true!
Welcome to another little snippet of Parks and Recreation.
