  1. We start by talking about Greenburgh City Supervisor Paul Feiner, Esq., and his compelling efforts to find formula in short supply for those who struggle to find formula and/or a compatible substitute. The process begins with sending an email to [email protected], which in turn hires a team of volunteers to find baby formula.

On May 1, 2 and 3, new cases of Covid-19 increased by 40% to 1,003, with an average of 334 new cases per day. We explore why many media shun reality staring us in the face. And the question of whether the media is compromising precautionary best practices/behaviours among their readers because they are not focused or aware of these frightening, albeit tabulated, statistics? New York State COVID-19 Tracker reports that Westchester County compiled 572 people who tested positive for COVID-19 on Friday out of 6,095 tested, a positive rate of 9.1%. The entire Central Hudson region reported 1,350 positives, with an average of 10% positives for the 7 counties.

The question is whether the “investor” can/should be protected by regulators. Has the investor forgotten that the “buyer” must be “suspicious”? From 10 a.m. to 10:30 a.m., summer time.

Michael Edelman, Esq., political analyst/pundit shares their point of view on a range of issues/concerns,

  1. Russian President Vladimir Putin warned Finnish President Sauli Niinistö in a phone call on Saturday that a Finnish NATO bid “could have a negative effect on Russian-Finnish relations”, according to the Kremlin press office. Russia’s unprovoked invasion of Ukraine prompted the historically neutral countries of Sweden and Finland to seek membership in the defensive alliance, and Russia responded with half-veiled threats.
  2. Anticipation persists that Pres. Biden is expected to offer a partial student loan forgiveness plan, the prospect of 2 years of free college, $10,000 student debt forgiveness and, most recently, $50,000 student debt forgiveness. Quiet consternation persists among those who have paid or are paying their student debt. Is there an exemplary solution to this problem?
  3. We face increasing gun violence and bigotry that has resulted in the deaths of 10 people in the city of Buffalo. Can America find the rhetoric, the behavior, to bring about the necessary changes or is society condemned to its anger and violence towards its country? disappearance. 10:30 a.m. to 11:00 a.m. summer time.

Ukraine’s Kalush Orchestra won the popular competition with their song Stefania, which became a popular anthem among Ukrainians during the war, and their victory lifted their spirits. “Our courage impresses the world, our music conquers Europe,” Zelensky said on Facebook. “Next year, Ukraine will host Eurovision!”
  4. In addition to losing a large number of men and a lot of military equipment, Russia was hit by economic sanctions. The major Western economies of the Group of Seven pledged in a statement on Saturday to “further increase economic and political pressure on Russia” and supply more arms to Ukraine.
  5. Moscow’s invasion, which it calls a “special operation” to disarm Ukraine and protect it from fascists, has shaken European security. kyiv and its Western allies say the assertion of fascism is a baseless pretext for an unprovoked war of aggression.
  6. Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Friday that it was not possible for his NATO member country to support the alliance’s enlargement because Finland and Sweden were home to “many terrorist organizations”. From 11 a.m. to 11:30 a.m.
