As Jay-Z and Kanye might say, 'that sh*t cray'

Wikimedia/Darkhunger

Sure, brisket hot dogs and handmade Rumbador's PB&J chocolate bars beat peanut M&M's and dirty-water dogs any day in our book, but while Brooklyn's Barclays Center has the food menu down pat, they might want to work on the drinks menu.

Ryan Sutton of The Bad Deal (and Bloomberg's food critic, super important info) snapped a shot of the menu board at the newly opened arena, and it turns out that a regular water is $4.50, while a regular soda is $4.

Of course, the soda size complies with the new (not-yet-in-effect) law that caps soda sizes at 16 ounces. HuffPo notes that for $4.50, you get 20 ounces of water; $4 gets you 16 ounces of soda. But still, not many people do the math when they're super hyped up at a Jay-Z concert; they're just trying to stay hydrated for the least amount of money. So really, not good incentive to get the water, guys.

In related news, does anyone have extra tickets to Jay-Z this weekend?

Atlantic Yards/Pacific Park Report

This watchdog blog, by journalist Norman Oder, concerns the $6B project to build the Barclays Center arena & 15-16 towers at a crucial site in Brooklyn. Dubbed Atlantic Yards by developer Forest City Ratner in 2003, it was rebranded Pacific Park Brooklyn in 2014 after the Chinese government-owned Greenland USA bought a 70% stake going forward. In 2018, once the arena & four towers were built, Greenland bought out most of Forest City's stake, then sold three leases to other companies.

Jay-Z round-up: late start means straggling crowds no BK beer but happy concert-goers new YouTube channel focuses on "the new global cosmopolitan elite" Jay-Z's profits synergy with the Nets and some dissents

Two reports from reporters attending Jay-Z concerts at the Barclays Center aim to (mostly) praise the events, but also wind up offering a backhanded explanation for the lack of traffic chaos before the official 8 pm start: the concert doesn't start until 9:30 pm, and lots of people know that, so they straggle in closer to that time.

No Brooklyn booze but a good time

Chaban found an arena spokesman failing to explain whether Jay-Z gets a cut of concession sales, a claim that Brooklyn Larger is available, a report from Hindy that those paying for sponsorship seem to be getting the most attention.

Bruce Ratner couldn't have provided a better quote.

Berger writes that, before the room filled up, "cynics might have been forgiven for dismissing the 19,000-seat arena’s claim that Jay-Z had sold out all eight shows."

Actually, capacity for Jay-Z concerts has been 16,200. Also, they put some tickets on sale late, so the house was never fully sold-out as claimed.

Jay-Z at his stash spot

During the mid-'90s, Jay-Z used to hide the drugs he was selling in his apartment in Brooklyn, located at 560 State St. He said so himself on the classic track "Empire State of Mind" ("I used to cop in Harlem, all of my Dominicans right there up on Broadway, pull me back to that McDonald's. Took it to my stash spot, 560 State Street").
As you all probably already know, times are different now. And today, the iconic rapper can go to that same building and look at the arena he helped build: Barclays Center.

The rapper did just that and he posted a picture of the occasion, putting it on his LifeAndTimes site. In the picture, we see the rapper rocking black jeans, a black and grey Nets hat and Jordan 6s while he looks at his arena located in his borough.

Jay-Z's concert and channel

From the New York Times's Off the Dribble blog, 9/30/12, For the Nets, a Coming-Out Concert:

The arena is really a shared space, and the “home court” that N.B.A. players rhapsodize about is really an illusion created for 41 nights, and perhaps a few playoff games. The rest of the year belongs to Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber.

This is what made Friday’s opening of Brooklyn’s Barclays Center so remarkable.

The night was not about the Nets, not officially, yet in so many ways it felt like their coming-out party.

The concert by Jay-Z — who owns a tiny share of the team — was a hip-hop show, a self-tribute, a Brooklyn pride rally and a Nets pep rally all in one.

The team’s black-and-white logo was everywhere, stamped on hats and T-shirts worn by fans in every section. The N.B.A.’s deputy commissioner, Adam Silver, watched from a luxury suite. About a dozen Nets players were in attendance, including the stars Deron Williams and Joe Johnson. So were Coach Avery Johnson and General Manager Billy King.

Yet there was no bigger symbol of the Nets’ arrival than Jay-Z himself. Though he only owns about one-fifteenth of a percent of the team, his immense influence was felt the moment he stepped on stage, wearing a white Nets cap and a black jersey with “Brooklyn” spelled out across the chest.

It was surely the first time in N.B.A. history, and perhaps the history of any major sport, that a team’s uniform was unveiled by a global entertainment icon during a rap show.

. The confluence of themes Friday was evident at the souvenir stands, which mixed T-shirts featuring Jay-Z with T-shirts that merely listed Brooklyn neighborhoods (Clinton Hill, Bensonhurst, Fort Greene, Crown Heights, Williamsburg). Another read, simply, “JZBK 2012.” And of course, there were shirts declaring, “Hello Brooklyn” — which is both a Jay-Z song and the Nets’ marketing slogan.

It is rare to see high-ranking N.B.A. officials at a hip-hop show, but this was no ordinary concert and no ordinary performer.

Magic Johnson was in the building. So was John Calipari. He was trailed by William Wesley, the mysterious “Worldwide Wes,” who serves as a confidant to LeBron James and several other N.B.A. stars.

Fans readily conflated the arena’s opening with the Nets’ arrival.

Amilcar Davy, who wore a white Nets hat, excitedly called it “opening night of the first basketball team in Brooklyn.” Davy, 30, said he grew up in Crown Heights but now lives in Maryland. He came home just to see the show.

The WTC developer at the Barclays Center

15 Ultra-Frugal Money Saving Tips

On average, Americans currently save around 4.2 percent of their income, according to the Bureau of Economic Analysis. But some super-savers manage to put away far more than that--close to half of their take-home pay. Some strategies are extreme, such as only taking cold showers, and others are downright dangerous, such as driving a car with the engine occasionally turned off. But some of them are useful, and can allow you to live on as little as $500 a month, depending on where you live.

Here are 15 of the best savings tips:

Take cold showers. Andy Hough, author of the blog TightFistedMiser.com, argues that skipping hot water will reduce the expense of heating up the water as well as the water bill itself since you'll likely take shorter showers.

Get rid of your car. While minimizing car use can save cash, Hough suggests cutting out car use altogether. He says public transportation, biking, and walking can work just as well.

Stop using a fridge. While ice cream and cheese lovers will resist this change, Hough insists it's entirely possible and notes that at least one blogger, formerly known as Nomad Needles, has done so successfully. (He's also grown accustomed to scraping mold off his cheese.)

Replace your house with an RV. Doreen Orion, a psychiatrist and author of the memoir Queen of the Road, left her dream house in Boulder, Colo., and her 200 pairs of shoes to go on a road trip with her husband. They spent a year living in a 340-square-foot bus, camping throughout the country. When they got home, they realized they were happier in the RV than in their dream house and made the change a permanent one.

Bake cookies in your car. This will only work in hot climates, but Nicole Weston of Baking Bites has developed a method of baking chocolate cookies with the heat that collects inside cars on steamy days. She suggests parking in the sun, using a thermometer to help monitor the temperature, and protecting your dashboard by putting a barrier between it and the baking sheet. She says it needs to be at least 95 degrees outside for this to work, and the cookies take about two and a half hours to cook.

Reuse plastic sandwich bags. Sandwich bags can be easily rinsed out and dried and used again the next day. As long as the bags didn't touch raw meat, it's hygienic--and environmentally friendly. With a pack of 100 bags going for around $3, a family of four can save about $30 a year.

Turn your car off--while it's still moving. While the American Automobile Association warns against this technique, some bloggers are promoting it as a way of saving gas. By using the car's momentum to glide into parking spaces or move downhill, you can get where you're trying to go without burning any fuel. Just make sure you practice driving without power steering and power brakes in an open space before experimenting near other cars--or people. And never try this at high speeds, even though some blogs recommend it--it's too dangerous.

Make your own cleaning supplies. Martha Stewart has long recommended vinegar and lemons as kitchen cleaners. To absorb unpleasant smells, leave vinegar in a shallow bowl on a kitchen counter. To deodorize a garbage disposal, squeeze lemon juice down it. You can save up to $10 a month on cleaning supplies.

Stop drinking soda (or another beverage of choice). Tricia at Blogging Away Debt recently tried giving up soda as a way of cutting back on grocery costs. She estimates that if both she and her husband are successful in giving up fizzy drinks, they'll save about $50 a month. Going cold turkey with other drinks, from lattes to bottled water, can produce similar effects. If you're used to two or three sodas a day, the change could save you upwards of $30 a month.

Move back home with your parents, at any age. When writer Nan Mooney became a single mom in her 30s, she moved in with her parents, who also provide some child care. The arrangement allows her to afford motherhood, she says. Other grown kids say they also enjoy the arrangement, even if it means giving up some privacy. Parents can benefit, too--they get free pet sitters and help reduce their own costs. You can save up to $3,000 a month in avoided housing costs.

Buy in bulk. One reader, Zack, drives to the suburbs in New Jersey to shop at bulk retailers, such as Sam's Club. He fills large duffel bags of food to bring back to the city and estimates it saves a significant chunk of change each month.

Stockpile supplies. Cans of beans and tomatoes are cheap, store easily, and make quick, filling meals.

Compare prices. For some items, such as fruit, buying from street vendors turns out to be cheaper than shopping at Manhattan grocery stores.

Cook big. Zack makes lots of soup, chili, and other big dishes that can turn into leftovers or even go into the freezer for a future meal. To spruce up the dishes and make them even bigger, he often adds pasta or rice.

Plan ahead. By loosely deciding in advance which meals to cook on which nights, Zack avoids getting home from work--starving--and eating out just because it seems easier.

Japan's new Aegis missile-defence ships are expected to cost at least 900 billion yen ($8.27 billion), more than double the cost of two planned ground-based sites that the country cancelled last year, the Asahi newspaper reported. Government ministers, who have yet to provide a cost estimate for the Aegis ships, may face questions in parliament about the expense, the newspaper said, without saying where it obtained the information. A source with knowledge of the ship proposal told Reuters in October that Japan may have to spend twice as much and wait up to three years longer to deploy new Aegis ships than if it had stuck with the ground-based plan.

It is believed the venue has already received noise complaints, and the new roof is expected to help muffle the sound from the venue.

In December, Forest City Ratner Cos and Greenland completed a definitive agreement for a joint venture to develop Atlantic Yards, a 22-acre residential and commercial real estate project in Brooklyn.

The joint venture, which is expected to close in 2014, would cover both phase one and phase two of the project – excluding Barclays Center and the first housing tower, B2 – including infrastructure, a permanent MTA rail yard, a platform above the rail yard and future residential units.

'Our original design for the arena had anticipated a green roof as part of our effort to achieve Silver LEED certification,' MaryAnne Gilmartin, FCRC President and CEO, said.

The new green roof will be built on top of the current blue and white one

'While we independently reached that goal, we always hoped to still create a green roof, further improving the environmental footprint of the arena and also making a more direct connection to the sedum covered transit entrance on the plaza.'

Ms. Gilmartin explained that in addition to providing a more appealing roof for people visiting and living around the arena, it will also enhance the space for those who will be living in the residential buildings surrounding Barclays Center.

Miley Cyrus and Robin Thicke performs onstage during the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards at the Barclays Center. the venue is now set to get a green roof

B2, the first residential building, is currently under construction.

Ifei Chang, CEO of Greenland USA Holding Companies, said "Greenland is very excited about working with FCRC on what we believe will be one of the largest and most impressive green roofs in the City and perhaps the country.

'We are strongly committed the environmental benefits of green roofs.

'But beyond that, we see this as a really strong statement to the people of Brooklyn, and really the people of the world, that Greenland is a proud partner at Atlantic Yards.

'We know the residents who move to Atlantic Yards will look upon it proudly and we’re hopeful that others will celebrate the greening of our great urban areas.'


This Is What Happens To Your Body One Hour After Drinking A Can Of Coke.

Something that I noticed when working as a pharmacist was why people would still gain weight even though they were following a strict low fat diet recommended to them by their doctor.
This made me question whether it is really the ‘fat’ that causes us to gain unhealthy weight.

After seeing so many people suffering from obesity related diseases like heart disease, diabetes and the side effects of the medication they were taking, I was strongly motivated to research what actually causes people to become obese, it clearly was not just the fat they were eating!

I actually discovered that a trigger factor for many widespread diseases of the west such as obesity, heart disease and diabetes could be closely linked to the consumption of one particular substance found in many processed foods and drinks – fructose in the form of high fructose corn syrup.

Fructose is the form of high fructose corn syrup found in pretty much all processed foods such as ready meals, fast foods, sweets and fizzy drinks and most people are totally unaware of its danger.

It is also often found in ‘low fat’ supposedly healthy alternatives and even many popular weight loss products because food with the fat taken out simply tastes horrible. High fructose corn syrup in combination with many other additives are usually added to enhance the flavor.

Glucose is the type of sugar our body loves. It gets metabolized by every cell in our body and is very easy to burn with very few toxic by-products. It also tells the brain to stop eating when you are full.

Fructose on the other hand is another type of sugar and is found in sucrose which breaks down to glucose and fructose.

Fructose is actually only metabolized by the liver and it’s very similar to ethanol (the alcohol in drinks).

When you consume it, it’s actually like ethanol but without the high. It confuses the liver and ends up making lots of bad fats in the process. It also doesn’t signal your brain that you are full.

This is why people can drink massive cups of fizzy drinks which are high in fructose and still eat huge meals containing refined foods that are also full of fructose.

Many fruits also contain fructose, but nature has provided the antidote, as these fruits are also packed with fibre which prevents your body from absorbing too much of it.

When I advised people to reduce their consumption of high fructose corn syrup by eating lower carb/higher protein diets, free from processed foods, even if the labels say they are healthy options, they started to lose weight and feel much better as a result.

In many cases I asked people to just stop their consumption of fizzy drinks like Coca Cola and instead swap it with either plain water, or add some freshly squeezed lemon for flavor.

Green tea is also a great alternative, and it is one of my personal favorites because it contains alpha wave stimulating theanine that also double serves as an antidote to the harmful effects of caffeine.

Those who loved to drink tea and coffee sweetened with lots of sugar, I advised to swap with natural sweeteners like stevia instead. This alone had some remarkable results.

There are 1.6 billion servings of Coke sold each day worldwide!! A very significant percentage of that is through supermarket chains like WALMART.

So you can imagine how unpopular I became in WALMART’s head office in the UK with my information strongly advising people to stop drinking fizzy drinks like Coke!

I recently came across a great article by Wade Meredith that explains what happens when you drink just 1 can of Coca Cola and this applies to pretty much most caffeinated soft drinks, not just Coke!

I have added citations to research I have found that gives some evidence to the claims in the original article.

When somebody drinks a can of Coke or any similar sugary caffeine drink, watch what happens…


3 Ways to Use Essential Oils to Get Rid of Moths

You’ve found the perfect sweater. Its color and fit are flawless. Each time you wear it, it’s like being wrapped in a warm, grounding hug.

You take care when you wash your sweater, making certain not to shrink or warp the fabric.

Then one autumn, after a long, hot summer, you slip into your sweater to be met by a series of holes compliments of a nesting moth.

And just like that, your sweater is ruined.

3 Ways to Use Essential Oils to Get Rid of Moths

Clothes moths are so tiny that you may not ever see them. They can be such pests. They nest in your nicest clothes, usually the wools, silks and cashmere pieces because they contain keratin that provides nutrients to the larvae (yum). So when the larvae hatch from their soft little cashmere nest, the first thing they do is set off to munch away. And they have a voracious appetite.

Moth balls are an obvious solution, they offer protection but there is a high cost for this protection. Moth balls smell terrible. Think back to grandmas attic. The smell is horrible and off-putting because moth balls emit toxic vapors to get rid of the moths. Vapors that can be extremely harmful to humans and pets (have you ever read the back of one of those packages- it's scary!).

Luckily there are essential oils that can help us get rid of moths in a fragrant and natural manner.

When it comes to repellent moths, there are many essential oils that will achieve this end goal, but my favorites to use are lavender and lemon.

Lavender and lemon essential oils compliment each other beautifully and they get the job done when it comes to effectively repelling months. Moths are highly sensitive and can’t tolerate the aroma of lavender or lemon.

***Important note, lavender and lemon essential oil won’t kill moths and moth larvae, it will only repel them. You’ll want to make sure that you don’t have any preexisting "friends" hiding in your clothes. If you find them cedar essential oil will kill the larvae and moths.

3 Ways to Use Essential Oils to Get Rid of Moths:

1) Make a spray! Mix lavender and lemon essential oil in a spray bottle (50% water and 50% lavender and lemon essential oils in equal portions). Lightly mist your clothes. This doesn’t work well in humid closets! Only use in dry aerated closet or drawer environments.

2) Drop lavender and lemon essential oil in the corners of your closet once a week. 10 drops of both lavender and lemon in each corner should do the trick. Replenish weekly.

3) Douse an old scarf, tie or sock with lavender and lemon essential oil. Apply about 20 drops of each. Tie the scarf, sock or tie to the closet rod. Replenish each week.

You always have the option of using lavender and lemon rind sachets as well. You can replenish them by dropping lavender and lemon essential oil on them to boost the aroma.

* Note, all of the above methods can work in a drawer too. Make sure that drawers are fully dry before you close them.

    Best Holistic Bookstores and Shops NYC

    Last week, a Reiki client of mine who recently moved to New York from the Bay Area voiced frustration over trying to locate a good holistic store in her neighborhood.

    "All I want are some essential oils, crystals and books."

    I could empathize with her frustrations. It took me several years in New York to form relationships with my favorite holistic and spiritual shops. It was also much easier in 2001, a time when there seemed to me a lot more independent spiritual shops in the city and surrounding areas. From 2001 to 2013, four of my favorites closed down.

    While I agree, that New York is not as abundant as it could be with holistic and spiritual shops, bookstores and herb shops, there is definitely a spiritual and holistic sub-culture and a few great stores that cater to it.

    While working with my clients, I am regularly asked about places to buy books, mala beads, sage, meditation cd's, etc. This post is my answer to these questions.

    394 Atlantic Ave, Brooklyn, NY 11217

    You'll find row upon row of medicinal herbs, tea infusions and spices at Brooklyn's charming little gem, the Herb Shoppe. I love this place! They have a great selection of tinctures, salves and essential oils as well and bonus points, there is a naturopathic doctor on hand to answer questions.

    2 W 14th St New York, NY 10011

    One could get lost in Namaste for a very long time, a very, very long time indeed. It is hard to have a single focus when you enter Namaste because there is just so much to experience. Namaste has an extensive book collection, one of the best in the city as far as holistic and spiritual books are concerned. Also extensive, is their crystal collection, jewelry selection, and menagerie of altar worthy statues and carvings.

    22 East 30th Street, New York, NY 10016

    The New York Open Center, in and of itself is a magnificent resource. Its bookstore is a wonderful resource as well. The New York Open Center Bookstore has a great selection of books. You'll also find a variety of goodies here from fragrance oils, reiki candles, incense, sage and mala beads.

    240 E 53rd St New York, NY 10022

    Quest hosts an extensive collection of books. I love the quaint feel. This is another store where you could easily spend hours and not realize how much time has elapsed. In addition to a large variety of books, Quest sells candles, essential oils, crystals and incense.

    *Also, Botanicas, depending on your neighborhood, can prove to be phenomenal holistic resources.

      Like Uncle, Like Nephew: How Jim Metzger and Rob Pannell Defined Long Island Lacrosse

      The concept of success has found deep meaning for Rob Pannell of Smithtown, one of the best professional lacrosse players to ever grace the game.

      As a standout with Cornell University and later with the New York Lizards, Pannell set records and streaks that not only defined the game of lacrosse at the time but also showed the nation what caliber of talent Long Island had to offer. He has even been described by lacrosse experts as “the Michael Jordan of his game.”

      That idea of long-lasting, record-setting, and fulfilling success wasn’t instilled by coach pressure but rather from seeing his uncle, Jim Metzger live a life that many would consider to be outstanding. Metzger’s influence on Pannell early on came through the “fun uncle” approach, according to Pannell, who noted the excitement he would feel when a well-dressed Metzger would pull up with his fancy car in the driveway.

      “He loves lacrosse more than I do,” Pannell says of his uncle’s passion for the game, noting that he never realized Metzger’s longtime playing capabilities. “It’s incredible. I’ve learned a lot from him.”

      Now CEO of the Garden City-based Whitmore Agency, a leading insurance group, Metzger’s success is also one cradled in many days on the lacrosse field. Metzger was an All American at Hofstra University, though he cut his career short as a personal decision. Metzger isolated himself from his passion for lacrosse for the longest time after that — roughly 25 years away from the sport he loved so much.

      “I lost that connection until I really began watching my nephew play,” Metzger says.

      It was only as his nephew became more and more committed to the sport in high school that Metgzer rekindled his love of the game with the intent of guiding Pannell down a path of success.

      “Rob wasn’t recruited much in his early high school days,” Metzger says, noting that Pannell “went from good to great” from his junior to senior year at Smithtown High School, putting up a record 130 points that season in the process.

      But Pannell’s senior year breakout was almost too late for him to be scouted by colleges, according to Metzger. Taking the advice of his uncle, Pannell put in a year at Deerfield Academy, where he again set program highs during his short tenure before finally reaching the Ivy League.

      “I felt compelled to become involved because I saw his outstanding ability,” Metzger says.

      That ability shined during Pannell’s first season with the Big Red. Pannell became the Ivy League’s rookie of the year and set Cornell University’s rookie record for points in a season, boasting a team-high 67 points while also being the highest-scoring freshman on the year as a first team All Ivy-Leaguer.

      Meanwhile, Metzger was there for it all as he “suffered” through the highly intense excitement that Pannell’s collegiate career brought.

      “I would make the trip up to Cornell by myself for his games and I couldn’t be around anyone while I watched,” Metgzer says, noting he would go to empty sections of the stands to watch his nephew’s high-stakes games. “Watching Rob plays brings back all the excitement that I felt when I did.”

      Nothing was more wild for Pannell or Metzger that freshman year. That’s when Pannell and his 16 postseason points led Cornell to the 2009 NCAA championship, where the team fell 10-9 against its state rival Syracuse University. Though Pannell or the Big Red didn’t capture a national championship, that year was a telling one for the future his career had in store.

      “He has a work ethic that I never had,” Metzger says of his standout nephew.

      That work ethic showed on and off the field. Playing in the Ivy League, Pannell learned early on that just being talented on the field wasn’t enough to notch total success for the years to come.

      “You’re in there to get an education,” Pannell says, noting the mandatory study hours he had to commit to as a D1 athlete in the Ivy League.

      That overall dedication and commitment to excellence is what pushed Pannell to receive an Excellence in Sports Performance Yearly (ESPY) Award nomination for best male athlete during his junior year in 2011, the only lacrosse player to ever be nominated at the time.

      A year later, Pannell was drafted professionally into the New York Lizards, where he would fittingly enough play his home games at Hofstra University, in a stadium which is partly named for Metzger. After all, it was Pannell’s pursuit of the game that inspired Metzger to become heavily re-involved in the Hofstra Pride.

      “Playing there, looking up and seeing my uncle’s name is certainly an experience that many don’t get to have and I love it,” Pannell says of his pro days and college tournaments at the Hempstead campus.

      While Pannell played beneath James C. Metzger Hall, he certainly made a name for himself on the field with the Lizards. The standout was named rookie of the year while also making an appearance in the Major League Lacrosse All-Star game during the 2013 season, just the start of an explosive professional career.

      Pannell’s third year in the league was a culmination of all the years of his work and his uncle’s proverbial suffering. That’s when he earned a third consecutive All-Star selection, was named MLL All-Pro for the second year, and led the league in scoring with 68 points, 38 goals and 30 assists as one of only pros in history to have at least 30 goals and 30 assists in a season.

      That wasn’t even his biggest highlight of the year. Pannell’s offensive capabilities led the Lizards to a championship that season, in a final where he personally put up four goals and an assist against the Rochester Rattlers. He was inducted into the Suffolk Sports Hall of Fame shortly after that.

      “I watch in awe,” Metzger says. “That man can do anything he wants.”

      Pannell’s career has found another discipline recently, this one with his uncle at The Whitmore Agency.

      Pannell chocks up his success both on the field and more recently in business to the relationship that he and his uncle have sustained throughout their somewhat paralleling careers.

      “He’s the definition of a professional and he’s guided me such a long away to what I am,” Pannell says.

      Metzger also said that the future for The Whitmore Agency with the addition of Pannell and other notable major recent acquisitions will be a big one for 2020.

      For right now, the uncle and nephew have a holiday tradition of watching basketball on Christmas Day together to look forward to as Pannell transitions from lacrosse to business, where he will be involved with what he calls “the Ivy League lacrosse mafia of Wall Street” under the wing of his uncle and mentor.

      “Family means everything in life,” Metzger says.

      His nephew echoes the sentiment.

      Pannell adds, “Everyone should have an Uncle Jim in their lives.”

      James C. Metzger is as well known for his philanthropy as he is for leading the Whitmore Group.

      How to plan a vacation in 6 months

      The trip month is here! As a rule of thumb, I Walgreen it. This means either before I leave for my trip I hit up Walgreens to snag whatever I could use during the trip (snacks, purse-friendly toiletries, batteries for a camera, etc.) or I’ll go online and find the nearest Walgreens (or another store) in my vacation city. I’d rather hit up Walgreens sooner than later but it’s nice to know there is a location waiting for me when I arrive.


      Whale Bone Alley

      Yttygran Island is another beautiful and haunting Russian island that is worth a visit. The island’s North Shore is known as Whale Bone Alley because of the multitude of whale bones that can be found there. The bones, however, are not just interesting to look at they serve as a reminder of the whale hunting that took place there centuries ago and also, many believe, as a spiritual place.


      The placing of the bones seems purposeful the rib cages are placed in the ground in rows and create a tunnel-like effect. The whale skulls are positioned facing different directions, and it is unclear what they are looking at. No one is certain how the bones reached this location in the first place, but the most common theory is that it used to be a whale hunting ground for local tribes, where they gathered together to kill their prey. The bones, which were left behind, maybe a way to thank the gods for the plentiful food the whales provided.
