Gotham Goes Green

My friend Sonia always says #beautyiseverywhere and I've found that the more I see it, the better my life is. Well, here is a great story about the beauty and humanity of FaceBook. Two brothers who had recently found each other through AncestryDNA (another great resource), realized they had a pair of older twin sisters. To find them, they posted on

I had to cut short my weekend basketball (not easy when you shoot 75%) for baseball (well, sort of). I accepted an invite to visit Citifield – home of my beloved Mets with Shelly. Doors opened at 12:30 p.m. and hoops officially ends at noon but often runs a bistle over. Needless to say, we arrived a bit early. We met my brand new group sales li

On this day in 1991, the World Wide Web was opened to the public. 1991. 26 years. No iPhones, Netflix, Amazon. No email, Macbooks, DVDs (which are now basically obsolete). No GOOGLE. No FACEBOOK. No TWITTER. No INSTAGRAM.   We have come a long way (baby). Like all big changes it has its "flaws," but its a tool to be used consciously. Though I hav

Your Friends

RIP Adam West. I really enjoyed that series in my youth. I enjoyed the comics. In all his appearances always a nice person. RIP Batman.   I took to social media, Twitter to be exact, when I wanted to learn about his passing. I learned he enjoyed 150,000 followers and only followed 115. His page said he joined Twitter in March 2009 – one month

Learning What The Public Ought To Know
Posted By : Corey Bearak

Watching the news unfold this weekend with demonstrations at the NYC airports and blocks away from where my Gotham Power Breakfast meets in downtown Brooklyn and places across the country, I found myself looking through my twitter and looking at my fave cable news outlet, NY1. A Day In The Life immediately came to mind.   Last week I discussed how

It's no surprise that everything around us, effects us. I've found this to be increasingly evident in my Facebook feed. Like a garden it needs frequent weeding. Or, since I'm a filmmaker, it needs good editing.   The hostility this election cycle has revealed is quite upsetting to me. I know logically that there is so much more hope and joy in t

Returning a "Gift"
Posted By : Cayce Crown

I am rerunning my blog from 11/18/15 because it seems so timely and I had forgotten about  Antoine Leiris. I hope he is staying the course. He is an inspiration. Amid all the anger, the sadness, the hostility, the revenge minded and retaliatory rhetoric, this story from The Independent stands above and beyond. I can't do any better this week: The

Do You Want to Know A Secret?
Posted By : Corey Bearak

A need for secrecy absolutely barred this subject for blogging last week. A day before my daughter would travel home, Marisa shared an email with her mom and dad, brother and a cousin.  She admonished us not to post on Facebook about her impending plans or presence upon arrival. Marisa kept secret her plans to attend a bridal shower on the date o
