As of last night, more than2.5 million New Yorkers have received a first vaccine dose—about 12.8 percent of the state’s population and 7% of New Yorkers are fully vaccinated. It’s the equivalent of your mom sharing those Facebook or WeChat articles about how aiming a hot blow dryer at your mouth will kill the CoronaVirus. The study is a preprint – which reports new medical research that hasn’t been approved or peer reviewed by the Scientific community or the health department yet. On average, we research over 30 different sources for each newsletter, so we’ll always do our best to double and triple check for ya.

The NY education system is the largest in the entire nation, with over 1 million students and 1,800 schools. Some critics argue that specialized testing prevents black and hispanic students from attending better schools, They also claim that the tests favor white and Asian American students. In 2016, a proposal to send some Upper West Side children — who were zoned for a high-performing, mostly white, wealthy elementary school near their homes — to a lower-performing school, attended mostly by low-income black and Hispanic students, about a ten-minute walk away, was met with vitriol. it appears she has a strong hold on what the NY schools system needs to flourish, and the very students who are being impacted.
FYI...indoor dining expands to 50% capacity in NYC today!!! 🥘 🍕 🍝 - Over 21% of New Yorkers have received their first vaccine and 10.6% are fully vaccinated. While cases are going down, the number of new cases based on the new variants make up over 65% of cases. - There’s lots of controversy around opening up so soon - critics worry that NYC still has a ways to go before reaching herd immunity and 50% capacity will only further the spread (especially amongst this new variant and workers). - Others say that the restaurants are in too dire of a situation to NOT reopen. Hanging on by a thread, opening up indoor dining will put some $$$ back into small business owners pockets. - Are we opening up too soon? Would you dine?! Let us know in the comments below.

WERE LAZY… Mayor Svante Myrick will propose replacing the city’s current 63-officer, $12.5 million a year department with a “Department of Community Solutions and Public Safety” which would include armed “public safety workers” and unarmed “community solution workers,” all of whom will report to a civilian director of public safety instead of a police chief. In its most simplistic form, the new proposal would separate responsibilities so that armed officers can handle traditional crimes and criminals (like shootings & robberies, for example) and have unarmed professionals handle situations like a car crash, rescue the kitty in the tree, or noise complaints from that annoying neighbor of yours. One of the major tenets we found of the new arrangement would be the creation of a Community Justice Center where, “The work associated with each recommendation will be trackable through an online tool that allows community members to provide input and sign up for process updates”. In February 2016 he released the Ithaca Plan: a Public Health and Safety Approach to Drugs and Drug Policy that garnered international attention for its forward thinking •His first budget included a radical overhaul of City government that merged departments, streamlined processes, and was able to successfully close a $3 million deficit-
