Feature: How To Employ Subway Etiquette

*Orginally published November 4, 2010*

Rule number 1: Let people get off the train before you push your way on. Collisions are fun in sports, the movies and even on the bumper cars. Other than that, they hurt.

Rule number 2: Don’t let your child take up three seats.  Yes, little Cindy is adorable hopping from seat to seat singing.  Absolutely precious.  That’s why I’m sorry that I’m going to have to sit on her.

Rule number 3: Move to the center of the car instead of cramming together on top of the door. I know it’s a crazy idea, but you might not be sexually harassed from all sides if you were willing to take a few steps into the middle of the car.  As cool as it might be to feel like clowns crammed into a tiny car, suffocation is not a fun way to die.

Nickless – Stay Tuned *Video*

Check out this video from NY based rapper Nickless. Stay Tuned is his first video which was shot by ‘Mystyle’ Matthew Sneh.

YNY’s article One Man One Way One Destiny on Nickless excerpt:

When you have a name that means “Victorious People” a desire to change the world with your music is definitely within your reach. Born in the Bay area of California, Nickless lost his father to HIV at an early age. He was then raised in a feminist household by a single mother while living in a predominately Black Panther neighborhood. Living on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, for the last three years Nickless has taken his dreams from California and turned them into a career in New York. “There’s the hippie revolutionary part of me then there’s the New York side of me that’s like money, money, money, money, hustle, hustle.” …[Read More]…

3rd Annual Female Flava Women’s Health Conference

THE POINT, located in the Hunts Point area of the Bronx, will be hosting the “3rd Annual Female Flava Women’s Health Conference-A Holistic Approach to Women’s Health” event this Saturday May 14, 2011.

Started a few years ago by Kellie Terry-Sepulveda, this female awareness event was created due to the lack of female support around Hunts Point section of the Bronx. What started off as honoring women in Hip-Hop soon expanded to celebrating women in the arts.

Female Flava is a women’s health conference that takes a holistic approach to women’s health and seeks to praise women with health coping skills via art. Sharon Lee De La Cruz, the program coordinator of the C.D.C.’s WOMEN’s (Where Our Minds Empower Needs) Empowerment Group, explained the importance of hosting this type of event, “Teaching and prevention methods are is very negative especially black and Latina women. We’re trying to reverse those roles by showing women how to be healthy through praise.”

Six workshops will be running simultaneously varying in topics from 11-12:30pm. Although this is a female based event, it is NOT female exclusive. Male and females in the community as well as youth groups are encouraged to attend. Registration and details of the workshops can be found here. There will also be late registration the Morning of Female Flava. The keynote address will be given by author Staceyann Chin. In addition to the workshops, there will be performances, a dance party, a live graffiti mural and more!
