Things To Do This Weekend in NYC

Last Weekend of Performances of Emma in Manhattan, in Queens, BRIC Celebrate BK Fest & Vodou Song & Dance in Brooklyn, The Mott Haven Film Festival & the Orchestra of St. Lukes in the Bronx, Free Film Night at the Lighthouse Museum, the Ocean Breeze Beach Soccer Tournament & Food Truck Festival returns to Staten Island and an African Arts Fest next week, Free Outdoor Concerts & Theater, Farmers Markets, NYC Public Outdoor Swimming Pools, Street Fairs, Public Beaches

July 22, 2022 / NYC Neighborhoods / NYC Things To Do Events / News Analysis & Opinion / Gotham Buzz NYC.

Weather. The temperature highs will be in the mid to high 90's and the lows between 80 - 85 degrees. The humidity will be relatively mild, ranging between the mid 40% to mid 50% range. Winds will provide a mild breeze ranging between 3 - 10 mph. No rain is expected over the weekend, and only a slight chance of some small amounts next week.

The photo at right was taken by / at the Wyckoff House Museum which is featuring Festival Minokan celebrating Haitian culture, including vodou. Vodou was an African / Caribbean ritual of communing / praying to one's ancestors. But then Hollywood got wind of it, and proceeded to blow it up / sensationalize it in order to generate ratings and ticket sales.

 

Vaccinations and / or Masks May be Required due to Uptick in CoVid New Infections, Hospitalizations & Death

Note. The new variant of CoVid has stimulated a significant uptick in CoVid infections. Many arts / entertainment venues require proof of vaccination with a matching valid ID, and some suggest or even may require the wearing of masks. Use the website links of each venue for their latest guidance, or just come prepared.

 

Congressional Hearings on the Trump Insurrection in Washington, D.C.

The Congressional Insurrection Hearings concluded their eighth televised event on Thursday evening. The hearings attracted an audience of 20 million for their first prime time hearing - which Fox TV boycotted - likely because the hearings shed light on the dishonest reporting by Rupert Murdoch's Fox 'News'.

Fox TV decided to broadcast the hearing last night, after continuing to boycott all - or nearly all - of the other televised Insurrection Hearings from their FCC licensed TV stations / network, despite Fox spokespeople's lies declaring the network would televise the hearings. They may have aired the hearings on their cable station, but I didn't check.

Omitting key facts - like not showing / broadcasting the Congressional Insurrection Hearings to Fox viewers - is one of the many techniques Murdoch and his mass media minions use to manipulate their viewers' perceptions of people, places and events. Nazi propagandist, Joseph Goebbels, also used this technique [omitting key facts] to mislead the German people, in order to reap personal gains.

A free people must act like adults, and listen to all of the facts, not just those facts they want to hear. Ignoring key facts - by it's very definition - is ignorance. Thomas Jefferson said, "Those who believe one can remain ignorant and free, believe in something that never was and never will be."

Hochul & Zeldin Win, Setting Up Clear Choice in the November Election

Governor Kathy Hochul looks well on her way to becoming the first woman to be elected Governor of the state of New York. She won 67% of the vote in the Democratic primary, handily defeating Public Advocate Jumaane Williams [20%] and Congressman Tom Suozzi [12%]. Hochul faces Congressman Lee Zeldin in the fall. Zeldin is pro guns, and an advocate of taking away a woman's right to choose early pregnancy cessation, while Hochul has been moving swiftly to curb the proliferation of gun carriers in public and to protect a woman's right to choose in NYS. The race is shaping up to provide voters with a pretty clear cut choice.
