The Importance of Regulating Lead in Drinking Water
The Huffington Post - 16 days
New York City's drinking water is among the best in the world, but the high quality of water delivered to some of our buildings may become contaminated within our buildings. Many of our buildings are decades old, some from the 19th century, and they contain decaying pipes and fixtures that may have toxics accumulating in them. These toxics can be difficult to measure, as we learned in a recent set of tests in New York City's school buildings. When the water was tested last year, very little lead was found and most of the water met EPA standards. But the typical method of testing for lead was to first run the water for two hours through the system and then test for lead. Some experts believed this could "water down" the results and the city agreed to run the tests without flushing the system first. About one third of the schools have now been tested and according to a report filed last week by Kate Taylor of the New York Times: "So far, the latest tests have found nine times as many wat ...

How To Move To Paradise With Nothing And Still Thrive
Huffington Post - almost 2 years
It's easy to fantasize about quitting your job and moving to an island in Hawaii, but paradise comes at a price. In Hawaii, that price is residing in a state so expensive it takes an annual salary of $122,000 to "live comfortably." And while the cost of living and rent are higher in Hawaii, the average salary tends to be lower. Despite the odds, adventurous and brave dreamers still risk it all for their slice of paradise, and we wanted to find out how. We turned to our HuffPost Hawaii readers on Facebook to find those who moved to Hawaii with no job and little money, yet still found a way to thrive. Here's what they had to say: Perspective is everything. After the passing of his father and a failed relationship, Mike Gallegos moved to Hawaii with three bags of clothes and a bag of tools. He spent his first two years "doing whatever I wanted. Booze, women, beach." Then, he reevaluated his lifestyle and changed his path. "I can honestly say I found myself," he wrote. "Perspec ...

Why It's OK to Let Kids Fail: A Guide to Not Overparenting
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Two years ago, Kristina Sauerwein, a mom of two in St. Louis, Missouri, attended a family fun night at her the new school her 7-year-old daughter Zoe attended. One of the games, which involved putting a golf ball into a hole, gave kids the chance to win a stuffed snake. Zoe tried -- and failed -- to get the ball into the hole. Zoe's little brother, her friends, younger kids -- they all hit the ball and won a stuffed snake. Meanwhile, Zoe kept trying, with the encouragement of her mom and dad, but missed the hole every time. As the winners stood around her, shaking their snakes like trophies, Zoe gave it one last shot. It was her 11th attempt. She missed. That's when Zoe had what her mother can only describe as "a meltdown." "I can't tell you how hard it was to sit there and watch her cry," says Sauerwein, 42. "I'm usually a softy about these things, but somehow I knew I had to let her experience the disappointment and frustration for herself. It was awful. I felt sick to my stomac ...

Jack Schimmelman: Sister Kate
Huffington Post - over 3 years
Photo courtesy of petersimon.com. Denizens and visitors venture into the furnace of a mid-summer night's revelry. It is Martha's Vineyard. From their air-conditioned sanctuaries, all migrate to the Old Whaling Church. They arrive to witness the celebration of the miracle of a mural recreated by the elegant artist, Margot Datz. The celebrant of the evening is Kate Taylor. The aforesaid mural was created by Carl Wendte. Mr. Wendte, a German muralist, immigrated to this country at the age of 20. He died from pneumonia at 28. During his brief period here, he created extraordinary works of art for churches on Nantucket and Provincetown. Ms. Datz based her recreation for Edgartown's Old Whaling Church on an 1870 photo and also analyzed Wendte's painting technique from the mural in Provincetown. Indeed, it is a understatement to use the word "miracle" to describe Ms. Datz' work. One original photograph remains for the ages. The mural is situated directly behin ...

The Best Time For Online Dating
Huffington Post - about 4 years
Love is in the air -- well, at least in matchmaking chat rooms. Resident researchers with Match.com told the Daily Mail that the week leading up to New Year's is the busiest week of the year for online daters. Kate Taylor, a "resident relationship expert" at the company, told the outlet that this is "the time of year when we vow to eat more healthily, exercise more frequently and budget better." She continued, "As the Christmas festivities calm down and we re-evaluate our lives, it's little wonder that looking for a partner will top the list of New Year priorities for many single people. If you make sure you're online during the busiest time of the whole year you'll have an even better chance of meeting someone special." The peak of the dating season was actually Wednesday evening, at precisely 8:52 p.m., CNET notes. Perhaps in honor of this Internet dating "peak season," Metro U.K. published a list of tips for those searching for digital chemistry in 2013. (Am ...

Enfield Patch - over 4 years
Colleen Landry walked across the platform, accepted her diploma and headed back to her seat in the middle of the Fermi High School graduating class of 2012. Suddenly, out of the corner of her eye, she caught a glimpse of a Navy petty officer, and made a tearful dash into the officer's arms. The officer was her sister Catherine, who arrived from her duty station in Norfolk, VA just in time to surprise her sister and watch 274 other classmates march to the athletic complex at the school they've called home for the past four years. "Tonight we honor and congratulate you for 13 years of hard work and dedication," principal Paul Newton told the graduates. "You should be proud of all your accomplishments, both inside and outside of the classroom...Remember, it's not always how you get from one place to another that makes it special; it's the view that you experience along the way that makes it truly special in the end." Let Patch save you time. Get great local stories like this del ...
