After sitting in a classroom for hours, it can be difficult to pay attention as your Texts and Ideas professor drones on about Machiavelli’s “The Prince” while all of New York City waits for you right outside the window. Some professors recognize this issue and, putting NYU’s famous words to work, make the city your classroom. As the world’s major commercial, financial and cultural center, New York City has some of the best resources for students to learn in the field. Gallatin junior Selly Djap went to La Mer’s headquarters on Broadway for her Advanced Practicum in Fashion Business class. “We learned about their basic strategies of branding and marketing,” Djap said. “My goal is to have my own fashion brand, which I did start. It’s really helpful to understand how the industry works.” In addition to having a plethora of renowned corporations’ headquarters, New York City is also home to some of the world’s … [Read more...] about Field Trips — the Best Way to Learn?

Pete Caldera North Jersey Record Published 9:45 p.m. UTC Aug 20, 2018 MIAMI – In the moments after Didi Gregorius became tangled with Blue Jays first baseman Kendrys Morales and tumbled to the ground on Sunday afternoon, the Yankees’ worst fears were eliminated. Gregorius got up and finished the first inning. He even played a quick second inning in the field. Yet, pain and swelling in Gregorius’s bruised left heel forced the shortstop’s early exit from a 10-2 win against Toronto, and the Yankees had yet to officially place the shortstop on the 10-day disabled list as of Monday. Manager Aaron Boone felt it was “a possible DL situation’’ for Gregorius heading into Monday’s team off date, prior to a two-game interleague series against Derek Jeter’s Miami Marlins. “You hope to avoid (injuries) as much as you can, especially to the key guys,’’ said Boone. “Whether they’re freakish, whether … [Read more...] about Assessing the New York Yankees’ injury situation as they head down stretch
Every morning in New York's 27th Congressional District, brothers John and Steven Ohol wake up before sunrise and tend their Cambria dairy farm. They load hay and grow corn for cattle feed. They milk their 200 cows. The Ohols' grandparents started this farm eight decades ago. They know how to do this, and they've gotten better at it. "There should be no reason why we can't make money," said John Ohol, 39, who grew up on this farm. Yet they're not making money. Every month, the Ohols hope that maybe they'll manage to break even. Eight miles away, several dozen workers show up at a 35,000-square-foot food factory. They wrap cheese, sauce, pepperoni and dough into a product called Original Pizza Logs, then package and ship it off to be sold in stadiums and grocery stores across the country. If their company does well, the workers do too. Finger Food Products Inc. has a profit-sharing plan, and though owner Jason Cordova doesn't reveal revenues, business seems good. After opening his $3.9 … [Read more...] about The long and winding district: A trip through New York’s 27th
A man said he witnessed a 6-foot tall creature hopping over a guardrail on Route 4 in Whitehall, which recently adopted the urban legend as its "official animal." (iStock) Bigfoot's yearlong travel adventures continue. A man who was on his way to Vermont claims to have seen the legendary creature, approximately half a mile away from where a similar-looking creature was spotted in 2006, according to a New York Post report on Monday. The investigator who spoke with the Post, Paul Bartholomew, said that the man witnessed a 6-foot tall creature hopping over a guardrail on Route 4 in Whitehall, which recently adopted the urban legend as its "official animal." NEW YORK TOWN 'ADOPTS' BIGFOOT AS ITS OFFICIAL ANIMAL “He was stunned," Bartholomew told the Post. "His jaw just dropped open. But this is actually a very typical type of sighting.” Bartholomew did not expand on what he meant when he said typical – it's not everyday someone allegedly witnesses a 6-foot … [Read more...] about Bigfoot spotted crossing rural New York highway
Pete Caldera North Jersey Record Published 4:03 p.m. UTC Aug 14, 2018 NEW YORK – Luis Severino is still falling, and the difference between now and his earlier Cy Young Award status ought to concern Yankees Universe. Yet, whatever he’s going through, Severino vows to pitch through it. “I’m definitely not tired. I just need to keep working,’’ Severino said after lasting just four innings in the Mets' 8-5 win against the Yankees on Monday night. That Severino's shortest start of the year occurred against the relatively tepid Mets’ lineup underscored how "things aren't going my way now,'' Severino said. On a dreary day, the Yankees encountered a full day of pitching concerns, beginning with CC Sabathia’s trip to the disabled list and ending with Severino’s latest subpar outing. Severino gave up two more home runs and the anticipated battle of New York’s best never materialized – at least on the Bronx … [Read more...] about Luis Severino stumbles again as New York Yankees’ ace goes 4 innings in loss to Mets
