Grammy Nominations: The Good, The Bad and The Ugly

The 2021 Grammy Nominations went out yesterday causing tears both happy and sad.  Beyoncé scored the most nominations with 9 including Record of The Year, Song of the Year, Best R&B Performance and Best R&B Song for “Black Parade.” This is the 7th time that Beyoncé is nominated for Record of The Year tieing her with Frank Sinatra with most nominations for the category.

Taylor Swift did very well with six nominations, Dua Lipa scored six as well and Justin Bieber got a nomination he is not too happy about.  His album, Changes, is up for Besy Pop Vocal Album of The Year but he claims the album is R&B.   After 10 years in the industry Harry Styles received his first Grammy nomination!

The Weeknd had a HUGE album this year and didn’t receive a nomination.  He took to twitter saying it is because of his Superbowl Halftime Show Performance…. anyone else confused by that?

Suffolk County SPCA offer Thanksgiving tips for your pets

Suffolk County SPCA offer Thanksgiving tips for your pets

(East Farmingdale, NY)- The Suffolk County SPCA offer the following tips to help keep your pets safe this Thanksgiving.

  1.  Avoid feeding your pet table scraps–as this may cause at a minimum weight gain, and we all want to avoid that this season. Keep turkey bones away from your pets. These dangerous treats can cause obstructions, choking and damage to the intestines. Bones can splinter on consumption and cause grave injury.
  2. Pets thrive on routine. Please make sure that your holiday guests understand your pet’s “house rules” when it comes to play time, treats, jumping, getting on counters, table scraps, and the like. Help them to keep your pet mindful of its training and good manners.
  3. Chocolate should be kept out of your pet’s reach all the time. Dark chocolate is the most toxic and can be fatal. Onions and garlic can cause severe anemia especially in cats. Raising and grapes can cause significant kidney damage and result in renal failure.
  4. As you prepare for the cold weather be sure to clean up antifreeze spills right away. The sweet smell of this highly poisonous substance attracts pets to it.

55-year sentence affirmed for 15-year-old MS-13 gang killer

55-year sentence affirmed for 15-year-old MS-13 gang killer

NEW YORK (AP) — An appeals court has affirmed a 55-year prison term for a MS-13 gang member who led the slaughter of four young men in a Long Island park when he was 15. But the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals also expressed disappointment Tuesday that parole was not still available for federal prisoners like Josue Portillo, now 19. The appeals panel said the case serves as a “classic illustration of the unfortunate consequences” of a decision by Congress to eliminate parole in the 1980s. The judges said Portillo might behave better in prison and pursue learning opportunities if he saw a chance for freedom before age 70.

Cuomo pleads with New Yorkers to skip in person gatherings on Thanksgiving

Cuomo pleads with New Yorkers to skip in person gatherings on Thanksgiving

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — The state’s governor and New York City’s mayor made one more plea Tuesday to urge people to abandon plans for in-person Thanksgiving festivities. Gov. Andrew Cuomo donned a turkey-themed face mask at a press conference in Long Island, where he disclosed he will no longer be celebrating Thanksgiving with his 89-year-old mother in-person. Cuomo urged New Yorkers to just say no to Thanksgiving gatherings to help reduce COVID-19 infections and hospitalizations, which he said are rising at a dangerous level. New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio said JetBlue is offering self-test kits for departing New Yorkers, but urged travelers to stay home.

2 NYPD officers from LI hurt on the job

NEW YORK (AP) — Two New York City police officers shot and killed an off-duty college security officer after he opened fire and wounded them as they responded to a domestic violence call at his home. Police Commissioner Dermot Shea said 41-year-old Rondell Goppy walked into his Queens home and started shooting around 12:45 p.m., just minutes after the officers arrived there with a woman who had gone to their police station to report an assault. Thirty-six-year-old Officer Christopher Wells was shot in the leg and needed surgery to repair a fractured femur. Thirty-three-year-old Officer Joseph Murphy was wounded in the hand and also required surgery for his injuries. She said both officers were awake and stable.
