While people tend to think of the “four-letter words” as modern phenomena, the reality is that the earliest recorded uses of these words date from 1,000 years ago (“f**k” is one of the most recent, from 1503).”

It's all part of the city's effort to achieve "zero waste" in landfills by 2030: "The commercial establishments in today's proposal are already recycling plastics and metals, and by additionally recycling organic material, they will significantly contribute to reducing our city's waste stream," de Blasio said in a statement. All told, the initiative could spare landfills 50,000 tons of waste a year.

But unsurprisingly, they haven't yet checked all of New York City's nearly 2,000 nail salons for violations just yet. A reporter for Animal New York went undercover following the newspaper's May 10th publication and was subjected to an unpaid training period, even though she worked in a salon that had already been charging…

To remedy that situation, Fletcher, along with all of her colleagues on the Toronto and East York community council, voted last week to reduce speed limits to 30 kph (or 18.6 mph) on 240 miles of residential streets in the central districts of the city. The lower speed limits are expected to encourage more people to bike and walk, and to improve air quality and noise conditions in…

With a price on parking, people stopped storing their cars on the street all day long, and there was finally some turnover. Problem solved.

But functions are something completely different. It’s the first abstraction most students come across in their study of math. And I’ve seen a lot of students start to dislike math when they get to algebra. They get frustrated that they just don’t get it. They tune out and turn off to math. And that’s a shame.

Series C and beyond has gone crazy. Public markets are rational. Tech stock performance has been strong but is driven by strong revenue growth and good business fundamentals generally speaking. The disconnect is entirely between the late stage private markets and the public markets. That’s where things are unstable.

This brings the total to 15 in the past 18 months, compared with eight total in the prior two years. New York taxi medallions are bringing in less money than they used to, according to the latest TLC data. As start-up Uber has grown in New York and the city itself has added more taxis to the streets, there have been declines in daily trips being taken per medallion and in daily revenue. The latest foreclosures suggest that the value of a medallion…

    New York state’s highest court says remaking New York City’s yellow cab fleet with Nissan minivans is legal. The Court of Appeals says the city’s Taxi and Limousine Commission had the authority through public bidding to choose that particular gas-powered model as the so-called “Taxi of Tomorrow” to replace yellow cabs as they’re retired. The seven judges unanimously rejected the appeal by an association of taxi medallion owners claiming the commission has authority to set specifications but not choose a single model. The ruling supports last year’s…
  • NYC Taxi Commission OKs New Rules for App-Based Car Services

    YellowCabNYC
    22 Jun 2015 | 2:57 pm
    New York City’s taxi regulatory agency on Monday approved new rules governing how Uber and other app-based car services operate within the five boroughs. Part of the proposal unanimously passed allows the companies to update their apps without approval from the regulators — a change from the initial proposed rules — a small but important shift that Uber, the multibillion-dollar ride-hailing app that has exploded in New York City in recent years, hailed as a victory. It ensures riders will have the most up-to-date-versions, an Uber spokesman said Monday after the agreement was…

  • Postcard Thursday: Manhattan Sightseeing Cars and the Times Tower

    Michelle and James Nevius
    2 Jul 2015 | 9:20 am
    Happy Actual Independence Day!Today's postcard was mailed exactly ninety-seven years ago on July 2, 1908. It depicts what was then one of New York's most noted skyscrapers, the Times Tower, which had been erected a few years earlier in Times Square. Today, that building's been so altered that it is virtually unrecognizable, but billions of people around the world know it well: it's the spot where the ball drops on New Year's Eve. (You can just see the pole sticking out of the frame at the top of the image.)This image, however, isn't about the Times Tower -- it shows the fleet of sightseeing…

The scenes -- a mix of on location and CGI -- feature a number of real locations from the fair (including Disney's Carousel of Progress and "It's a Small World"), but alas, not one of our personal favorites: The Uniroyal Ferris Wheel.The first Ferris wheel at the 1893 World's Fair.Ferris wheels were first introduced at the World's Columbian Exposition in 1893 in Chicago, the so-called "White City" World's Fair, and soon…

Inside, the host and his company conduct the busy work of a new government, promoting the economy and transforming fellow soldiers into enterprising citizens for peacetime.

    John Donohue
    3 Jul 2015 | 10:00 am
    From the beginning of time, through the artist Bruegel’s day, and until relatively recently, little fish had only big fish to fear. Since the middle of the twentieth century, however, some little fish—forage fish, to be precise—have faced radically increased threats from humans, and, by extension, from the pigs and chickens that the fish are increasingly being fed to. Forage fish are now threatened worldwide, which has potentially troubling implications for the entire food chain. In conservation circles, the suggestion lately is that encouraging consumers to eat small fish might,…

    There is a new app in Canada that will allow drivers to take a photo of cars illegally parked in the bike lane, and report them to their city officials so the cars can be towed.  According to fastcoexist.com, the aptly named Towit is currently capable of putting photos of the offending cars online to shame drivers into legal parking spots, but will soon be able to call cops for a tow.  Do you want to see Towit come to New York City?  Do you think it would make drivers think twice about parking in the bike lanes or just add to the number to tickets handed out by traffic…

We never planned on it –– if anything, I never thought we'd live in the same city once we all graduated and left London. So once my friend Bekki broke the news that she and her husband would be leaving NYC, I wanted to throw a fit and scream something along the lines of “OMG NO!  How can you do this to me?
