‘People Are Very, Very Nervous’: Community Leaders In Brooklyn Warn Of Increased Bias Attacks Against Jews


NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – Some leaders in Brooklyn’s Jewish community say bias attacks are happening more frequently.

The most recent incident left a man badly bruised. It was captured on camera and now police are searching for the attacker.

Police are keeping watch at the scene of the latest attack on Rutland Road near Schenectady Avenue.

Many Jewish leaders say this is happening too frequently to be a coincidence, CBS2’s Janelle Burrell reported.

“People are very, very nervous about what is going  on,” said Assemblyman Dov Hikind.

Jewish leaders including Hikind told Burrell they believe the recent attacks in Brooklyn aren’t isolated.

“They’re not anomalies?” Burrell asked.

“No, not at all. In between these two incidents, there are so many others. Many of them don’t get reported,” Hikind said.

The latest victim is a 52-year-old orthodox Jewish man who asked that CBS2 not share his name.

“Be my baby – The Ronettes”


Miss Back In The Day USA (An AmericaOnCoffee Blog)


The Ronettes were an American girl group from New York City. One of the most popular groups from the 1960s, they placed nine songs on the Billboard Hot 100, five of which became Top 40 hits. The trio from Spanish Harlem, New York,[1] consisted of lead singer Veronica Bennett (later known as Ronnie Spector), her older sister Estelle Bennett and their cousin Nedra Talley. Among the Ronettes’ most famous songs are “Be My Baby”, “Baby, I Love You”, “(The Best Part of) Breakin’ Up”, and “Walking in the Rain”, all of which charted on the Billboard Hot 100. “Walking in the Rain” won a Grammy Award in 1965, and “Be My Baby” was inducted into the Grammy Hall of Fame in 1999.[2] The Ronettes were inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2007.

I’m the Queen of my own story!!

Free to express

Happy basic woman special..

Queens, warriors, Princess, angels are way too old.
Todays trendy word of ruling is model, celeb, royal etc.

Hence I’m the model of my own story,
Head gears are modern crowns used to signify royalty.

It’s too mature to talk about such stuff in our early twenty’s and way too hypothetical to think if we carry within some countable stuff – a jeans, a couple of Tees, a baggit bag, a crimson coloured toothbrush and some daily utility stuff..

But what if I say this is my story and this is my way to handle it.
Then I could make sense to hold on to the words above.

The only eye opener to my lines are no matter how maintained you are or no matter how clumsy you are either, the only thing which matter is independence.

Make your self independent leading a normal life is…

Breaking Up Sucks, But It Doesn’t Have To

Live In The Nautical

“I believe much of the pain of a breakup comes from having a life plan that you have fallen in love with. When it does not work out, you become angry that you now have to pursue a new life plan.” ~ Karen Salmansohn

Break-ups Don’t Need to Be “Bad”

“He is an asshole.”

“His loss.”

“What a scumbag.”

When I broke up with my boyfriend of almost (and a whole lot of it’s complicated beforehand) two years, people around me started using negative language. Neither of us had cheated, (that I knew of at the time) he wasn’t abusive, it wasn’t anything bad, except we just did not work anymore. We were going in separate directions, stretching that rubber band until the inevitable break-up.

Yet, immediately, it became this negative diatribe with major ego getting in the way.

I admit their have been a couple guys I have wanted…
