Saw that the city's Panel for Education policy voted to shut down 19 chronically under-performing schools. One on the list is Beach Channel High School. Department of Education officials cited years of low-graduation rates and poor performance among the schools in their decisions to close them.

I have been offered to participate in an alternative work strategy by my company. What this means is that I can work remotely and would only need to come into the office once maybe twice a week. Company supplies a laptop with voip so as long as you have hi-speed internet connectivity you're good to go. While i can see some of the the pros and cons to this i was wondering if anyone here does this and what you think of it.

    Looking to remodel our kitchen. Already have the design and materials picked out but having problems finding a reasonable and reliable contractor that we can trust. I was wondering if anyone would recommend a contractor or if you have a horror story let me know who to avoid. Live in Brooklyn so someone local where we can see previous work would be ideal.

Former New York Giant Plaxico Burress pleaded guilty Thursday morning in a deal with prosecutors that will send him to prison for two years.  Burress pleaded guilty to on count of second-degree attempted criminal possession of a weapon. He will also be subject to two years post-prison supervision.
The deal, hammered out between prosecutors in the Manattan District Attorney's Offfice and Burress' lawyer, was the result of negotiations ongoing since his arrest last November.
Burress was indicted earlier this month on gun possession charges for accidentally shooting himself in the thigh in a nightclub.

SYDNEY, Australia (AP) -- Life can get a little lonely for bachelors in the Australian Outback mining town of Mount Isa. So the mayor has offered up a solution: recruit ugly women.

The Outback mining town of Mount Isa in the state of Queensland, Australia.

 Mayor John Molony found himself under attack Monday over comments he made to a local newspaper that read: "May I suggest if there are five blokes to every girl, we should find out where there are beauty-disadvantaged women and ask them to proceed to Mount Isa."

The mayor added that many women who already live in the remote Queensland state town seem quite happy.

"Quite often you will see walking down the street a lass who is not so attractive with a wide smile on her face," he continued. "Whether it is recollection of something previous or anticipation for the next evening, there is a degree of happiness."

The quotes, published Saturday in the Townsville Bulletin, sparked outrage among the town's female population, led to furious online debates and drew criticism from the local chamber of commerce.

"There's a lot of anger circulating among the community at the moment -- a lot of passionate anger," Mount Isa Chamber of Commerce manager Patricia O'Callaghan told The Associated Press on Monday. "There's a lot of women voicing their opinions."

Molony declined to elaborate on his comments when reached by telephone Monday by the Associated Press, saying that what he said was being "twisted and warped."

"I've been shredded," he added, before hanging up the phone.

The situation may not be quite as dire as Molony noted. According to the 2006 census, males made up 52.6 percent of the town's population of nearly 20,000.

And several local women said there aren't a lot of gems to be found among Mount Isa's men, either.

"We've got a saying up here that the odds are good, but the goods are odd," 27-year-old Anna Warrick told The Brisbane Times

Just saw this on CNN;

SAN DIEGO -- A man has died after a shark attacked him at Solana Beach on Friday near Fletcher Cove, San Diego County Sheriff's Department reported.

The waters off the beach are now closed from Del Mar to Carlsbad. The beaches remain open.

A witness who was part of a Friday swim group the man was with at the time told 10News of seeing a swimmer bitten by a shark below both knees. The group took the man to the shore where he died due to massive injuries, Sheriff's deputies said.

Medical responders have been called to the scene to retrieve the body which is at the lifeguard station at Solana Beach.

Sheriff's Astria helicopter was sent to look for sharks in the water.
