first_imgShare:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to email this to a friend (Opens in new window) Photo: Mike Shaheen / CC BY 2.0 / Pxhere.ALBANY – Governor Andrew Cuomo has signed a bill affirming the right to record law enforcement activity.The “New Yorker’s Right To Monitor Act” also allows members of the public to maintain custody of any recordings they make, and the instruments used to make those recordings.Meaning items like cellphones cannot be confiscated by police purely because they have been used to film an arrest.The Governor says transparency is critical to renewing the community’s trust and confidence in the policing system. “Stopping police abuse vindicates the overwhelming majority – 99.9 percent – of police who are there to do the right thing, and by making clear that all New Yorkers have the right to record and keep recordings of police activity we can help restore trust in the police-community relationship,” said Cuomo.last_img read more

This Week’s Picks! A Raisin in the Sun, Lesli Margherita & More

first_img Bring the Roaring ’20s to Your iPod Hits store shelves June 10 Don’t speak…but sing along with classic songs from the 1920s! The cast album for Woody Allen’s musical comedy Bullets Over Broadway, featuring the vocal talents of Zach Braff and Marin Mazzie, is officially here. To get in the mood befitting the show’s era, we suggest whipping up some bathtub gin, learning to Charleston, and losing a fortune in the stock market. (Um, maybe you should skip the last one.) Celebrate Fiddler’s 50th June 9 at Town Hall Your cousin Rodney, whose performance as Tevye was the toast of Middlebury High in 1997, will not appear at this gala celebrating the 50th anniversary of Fiddler on the Roof. But more than 40 vets—including Topol (who basically is Tevye) Jerry Zaks and Andrea Martin—will perform numbers from the beloved musical. The concert benefits The National Yiddish Theatre–Folksbiene. Click for tickets! Stay up Late with Lesli Margherita June 13 and 14 at 54 Below Sure, you’ve seen every delightfully wacky episode of Looks Not Books, but you haven’t truly witnessed the nuclear bundle of energy that is Lesli Margherita until you’ve seen her live. That’s why we’re so excited—and maybe a little scared—about her cabaret show, All Hail the Queen, which features 70 minutes of singing, dancing, and stories from Mrs. Wormwood herself. Stories? Please, please, please tell us they involve cooter slams and Whispers in Pajamas. Click for tickets! Jazz It Up with Patti LaBelle June 10 at the Brooks Atkinson Theatre Fantastic cook. Friend of Oprah. A force of personality who can say a phrase like “homie don’t play that” and sound totally legit. It seems silly to further deify Patti LaBelle, whose resume was coated in gold after she belted “Lady Marmalade” 40 years ago. So instead of reviewing her credentials, catch the R&B legend’s debut as the special guest performer in After Midnight. Click for tickets! Your apartment has shade, comfortable chairs, and a questionably stocked fridge. Forget all that (especially the old slice of pepperoni that’s more green than red). There’s too much fun stuff going on this week, including a Fiddler on the Roof benefit, the release of a cast album that’s the cat’s pajamas, and a cabaret extravaganza starring a certain royal Broadway.com video blogger. It’s all part of this week’s must-see list! View Comments See the Sun Set on Raisin Through June 15 at the Ethel Barrymore Theatre It’s been a wonderful run for the revival of Lorraine Hansberry’s groundbreaking drama, which garnered five Tony nominations and reminded us what a stellar stage actor Denzel Washington is. (What can we do to convince you to stay, Denzel? Import L.A.’s weather? Tell us!) But it’s time for the Younger family to move on. Take comfort, folks: They shouldn’t be gone too long. Legendary plays are like blue jeans—they’re forever in style. Click for tickets!last_img read more

Food recalls

first_imgBy April ReeseUniversity of Georgia An example of a Class III recall, she said, leaving “added water”off of the ingredient list. The product doesn’t meet federalrequirements for labeling. But it’s not a health hazard. That’s not good.”If a recall for food is announced, people should pay closeattention,” said Elizabeth Andress, an extension food safetyspecialist with the University of Georgia College of Family andConsumer Sciences.”There are different kinds of recalls,” Andress said. “And somecan indicate a very serious situation.”Hamburger and other meat products, infected with hazardousbacteria like E. coli and Listeria, are the most commonlyrecalled foods, she said. Take these recalls very seriously.A food recall is a voluntary step that a food’s manufacturer ordistributor takes to protect consumers, she said.Recall classes Food recalls fall into three classes based on the dangerassociated. It seems that every day a new recall is announced, warning peopleof the dangers associated with eating certain foods. You hearthese recalls so often they may sometimes fail to register. Check it out!”People should go to the trouble to check their freezers,refrigerators and shelves for identifying information on productsto make sure they don’t consume the contaminated foods,” Andresssaid. Then follow the directions for the recall if you want yourmoney back. When meat and poultry products are recalled, updated informationis available from the U.S. Department of Agriculture in the formof a recall notification report. These are on the Web atwww.fsis.usda.gov/OA/recalls/rec_intr.htm.The report includes the description of the food being recalled, thereason for the recall, the name of the producer, distributioninformation, any identifying codes, the recall class and peopleto contact.Other food recalls, besides beef and poultry products, arehandled by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration. The FDA isgenerally not authorized to “order” a manufacturer to recall afood.”Only when a medical device, human tissue product or infantformula poses a risk to human health does the law specificallyauthorize the FDA to prescribe a recall,” Andress said.FDA Recalls, Alerts and Enforcement Reports are on the Web atwww.fda.gov/opacom/7alerts.html andwww.fda.gov/opacom/enforce.html. These Web sites give you all theinformation you need to identify and return the recalled product.I already ate it. What now? “Class I recalls are the most serious,” Andress said. “Theseinvolve a health hazard in which there is a reasonableprobability that eating the food will cause serious healthproblems or maybe even death.” If you believe you’ve eaten food that’s being recalled, contactthe company or federal agency involved to learn what symptoms toexpect.center_img “Even in the case of some Class I recalls for bacterialcontamination of food, proper cooking before consumption mayremove the hazard,” Andress said. “So, a consumer may have eatena food before hearing about the recall and not gotten sick.” Andress said some foods that have been recalled may never makeyou sick. “In some cases, such as contamination with the toxin that causesbotulism, it won’t take long for symptoms to have appeared andthe damage to already be done,” Andress said. “However, in otherinstances, there may not be any harm.” Some consumers worry they have already eaten a recalled food. If it is said to be a “precaution,” it is most likely a Class IIor Class III recall, Andress said. But even then, she urgesconsumers to find out more. Learn how serious the risk is to yourhealth and what the government or company recommends you do withthe food. A Class II recall, she said, is one with a remote probability ofhealth problems from eating a product. With a Class III recall,eating the food won’t cause a health problem.last_img read more
