Wounded Livery Driver Meets His Late-Night Saviors (CBS)

NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) – It’s not the first time Jeffrey Cisnero Camacho is meeting these two police officers – it’s the second, and this time around, it’s a much happier reason.

“Sean and Jenny are my angels,” said Camacho, the livery cab driver who was shot multiple times by a passenger in the Bronx last month.

With tears in his eyes, flowers in his hands, and his family by his side, the 26-year-old father of three is overjoyed to come face to face again with the NYPD officers who saved his life.

April 26 & 27—Free Film Festival about North African Women’s Perspective on #MeToo & Other Topics

Thursday, April 26 & Friday, April 27, 2018
LaGuardia Community College/CUNY

Free and Open to the Public

What can be learned about gender identify from an exploration into how women in North Africa are reacting to #MeToo? How do North African women negotiate their social, professional, and political identities?

What can we learn from Amazigh cinema about transmission of cultural belonging and meaningful change? Can intimacy survive economic displacement? Can love sustain us?

These are some of the questions that will be addressed at the 4th annual New York Forum of Amazigh Film (NYFAF). The film festival, which is free and open go the public, will be presented over two days at the LaGuardia Performing Arts Center at LaGuardia Community College/CUNYon Thursday, April 26 and Friday, April 27, 2018.

The film festival is co-sponsored by Columbia University’s Middle East Institute, and is affiliated with the Festival International du Film Oriental de Genève (FIFOG).

The Amazigh, plural Imazighen, are a diverse people originally from North and Sub-Saharan Africa — now spread out across Morocco, Algeria, Libya, Tunisia, Egypt, and the larger diaspora. Commonly known as the Berbers (a term considered by some to be derogatory), academic researchers have identified evidence of the Amazigh as far back as 9,000 years ago.

“The Amazigh have an incredible history of fortitude and resilience. There’s much that can be learned from studying how the Imazighen have been able to hold onto language and culture, despite centuries of strife,” said NYFAF founder Habiba Boumlik, PhD, associate professor in theDepartment of Education and Language Acquisition at LaGuardia Community College/CUNY.

“We want to encourage young filmmakers to explore the rich diversity of Amazigh communities throughout the world. Last year, we featured films from filmmakers in Siwa, Egypt, and the Canary Islands; this year we’re showing short films from young filmmakers who grew up in the US, France and other areas of the European diaspora,” said Professor Boumlik, who grew up in Morocco and identifies as an Amazigh.

What: 2018 New York Forum of Amazigh Film (NYFAF)

Contemporary dramatic, documentary, and short films selected for the 2018 NYFAF explore how situations facing Amazigh women correlate to #MeToo and other topics.

Film selections include:

  • The Lock, a French-Tunisian documentary looking at the struggle between tradition and emancipation as three young women experience the tasfih, a “magical ritual that aims to protect them before marriage.”
  • Lidia Terki’s Paris la Blanche ( click here to watch a clip) tells the story of 70-year old Rekia who leaves her Algerian village to bring back her husband, an immigrant in France for 40 years.

When: 10:30am-8:30pm on Thursday, April 26; 10:30am-8pm on Friday, April 27, 2018

Thursday, April 26 — keynote speaker, Dr. Fazia Aitel from Claremont McKenna College, will present research on Amazigh expression and participate in a student-led discussion on gender issues across cultures, followed by a musical performance by Yuba, a reception and evening feature.

Friday, April 27 — audience members will vote on the Short Film Prize and meet the young women filmmakers in competition.

Lehman College Named a Top Producing Institution of Gilman Scholars

Lehman College was named as one of the top colleges in the nation for producing Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship winners, the U.S. Department of State announced. Lehman was tied for fourth among medium-sized colleges and universities, defined as having between 5,000 and 15,000 undergraduate students, with 13 Gilman winners in the academic year of 2016-17. The other schools with the same number of winners as Lehman included American University, SUNY New Paltz, The New School, and the University of New Hampshire.

Lehman College was one of three CUNY schools on the list, which was compiled by the department’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs in collaboration with the Institute of International Education. Lehman has been recognized for its success in making international study and internships more accessible and inclusive for American students of all backgrounds through the Gilman program.

“We have spent the last two years developing and refining a strategic plan for campus internationalization,” said Dr. Harriet Fayne, interim provost and senior vice president for academic affairs. “Educating students about opportunities to study, conduct research or intern abroad is a key component of our strategic plan and one that supports the mission of the College and the expectation that Lehman graduates will be able to meet the challenges of a 21st century global economy and society. The Gilman Scholarship Program provides our students with opportunities that may otherwise be unavailable to them. As a result, we recruit relentlessly and provide our students with multiple layers of support, individually and in groups, to obtain Gilman scholarships. We are thrilled by the distinction and we are most proud of our students.”

“This scholarship enabled me to expand the scope of my professional career and consider working in China,” explained Mairin Cahill, a Lehman College graudate and Gilman-winner. “I was inspired by the systems of healthcare delivery in China and was inspired to work on developing the healthcare system in the United States during my career. I see great potential for collaboration with Chinese health policymakers and their counterparts in the United States and making our system of care more equitable.”

The Benjamin A. Gilman International Scholarship Program, with the support of the U.S. Congress, is reshaping study abroad to make it more accessible and inclusive for American students. The Gilman Program broadens the U.S. student population that studies and interns abroad by providing scholarships to outstanding undergraduates who, due to financial constraints, might not otherwise participate. Since the program’s establishment in 2001, over 1,300 U.S. institutions have sent more than 25,000 Gilman scholars to 145 countries around the globe.

About Lehman College: The City University of New York’s only four-year college in the Bronx, serving the borough and surrounding region as an intellectual, economic, and cultural center. Lehman provides undergraduate and graduate studies in the liberal arts and sciences and professional education within a dynamic research environment. With a diverse student body of more than 13,000, Lehman offers more than 90 undergraduate and graduate programs. Ranked as having the fourth highest mobility rate in the nation by the National Bureau of Economic Research and the Equality of Opportunity Project, Lehman is a proud catalyst for economic and social mobility for its students, almost half of whom are first generation college students.

RESEARCH & CREATIVITY WEEK: LISSET DURAN’S AWARD-WINNING RESEARCH ON BREAST CANCER GENETICS

Research & Creativity Week: Lisset Duran’s Award-Winning Research on Breast Cancer Genetics

 

This year’s Research & Creativity Week (April 30 – May 4) will feature John Jay’s talented student researchers, including those that are receiving awards for groundbreaking innovations in the sciences.

Lisset Duran (’18), who is part of the Program for Research Initiatives in Science and Math (PRISM), is the first student at John Jay to ever receive the extremely prestigious CUNY Jonas Salk Award, which is given to graduating students for their potential to make significant contributions to medical research. The award recognized her research in genetics, which she’ll be presenting at Research & Creativity Week.

“My research has been on the regulation of genes in breast cancer,” says Duran. “By targeting certain proteins, I want to understand the expressions of genes that are beneficial to cells.”

Recognition of Duran’s research has been nationwide, and prior to earning the Salk Award, Duran attended the Society for Advancement of Chicanos/Hispanics and Native Americans in Science (SACNAS) conference and the American Society for Cell Biology (ASCB) Annual Meeting, where she was given awards for the quality of her research as well as her presentation skills. “Part of being a scientist is being able to communicate,” says Duran.

Duran, who is graduating with an undergraduate degree in Cellular and Molecular Biology, will be attending Princeton’s Ph.D. program in biology this fall, and she eventually dreams of working with NASA. “I have crazy dreams and PRISM has always supported them,” she says. “At John Jay, I’ve been doing research on a graduate student level, and I’ve been given so much responsibility. That’s why I feel so well prepared for my Ph.D.”

But before she leaves campus, she’s prepared to impress those who want to learn more about her research. John Jay community members and visitors will be able to witness for themselves Duran’s findings on May 2.

Lehman Adds New Interdisciplinary Data Science Minor

The study of data science has been exploding on campuses throughout the country as demand for employees with skills in data analysis, modeling and statistics, and engineering and prototyping continues to increase. According to LinkedIn, data scientist is the second fastest growing job in the United States and among the highest paying.

Now, the Lehman College School of Natural and Social Sciences (NSS) has announced the creation of its own Data Science minor. The minor will officially begin in the Fall 2018 semester, but classes students have already taken will be counted toward its completion.

The minor encompasses a five-course area of study with three required classes: Mathematics 128: Foundations of Data Science; Mathematics 328: Techniques in Data Science; and Sociology 3470: Reasoning with Data. Students will also be required to take a statistics course and another elective from a list of data focused classes across different disciplines. As the program grows, more electives will be added.

“Data science is an exciting career path for people from a variety of backgrounds,” said Elin Waring, a professor in the Department of Sociology and co-coordinator of the program along Megan Owen, an assistant professor in the Department of Mathematics and Computer Science. “Data science skills are also increasingly necessary for many different careers as the use of data grows across all sectors,” she said. “Being knowledgeable about how data is used is also an essential part of being an informed citizen in the 21st century.”

Data Science combines “statistics, coding, and domain knowledge,” according to Waring. And that knowledge is becoming necessary for professionals in engineering, chemistry, sociology, and business.

“Over the past three years, NSS has looked for ways to build intellectual and academic bridges between the natural and social sciences—and a robust interdisciplinary data science program fits seamlessly into that vision,” says Christopher Malone, associate dean of Lehman’s School of Natural and Social Sciences. “It has been truly remarkable to see our faculty come together and think through the merits and goals of data science at Lehman, and then develop a program that will benefit students across NSS and the College in their career paths.”

The Single Guy Blog

My New Dream Girl

Well it has been a while since I posted. I guess after finding out my dream girl was having a baby by another guy I just wasn’t in the mood to post. But I’m back folks! So I have a new dream girl. It is a bit of a long story so sit back,pour a cup of coffee and relax. So I have been stalking the Facebook page of the bar I use to work at-ya know how a single guys does when he has no life. I saw some pictures of a beautiful girl that bartends there. Blond hair,beautiful smile…just perfect. Of course I figured I would never have a chance with her-specially since she is about 20 years younger. But a guy can dream right? So a couple days ago I was looking around seekingarrangements to see if anyone new had signed up and who do I see? Yep that girl! We will call her…Tanya…So I figured hey send her a message who knows what might happen. She sent me a message back and we sent a few more messages back and forth. I gave her my number and SURPRISE she sends me a text! So we have been talking for a couple days now. She even says she likes older guys and not the young military guys that come into the bar where she works. We are planning on meeting this week. So we will see what happens…I have my fingers crossed and won’t be surprised if she disappears before we actually meet….but I might just actually have found my future wife-or she may just “ghost” on me like so many flakey girls do. Stay tuned..maybe the Single Guy won’t be single much longer!


My Dream Girl’s Baby Daddy Revealed

Well after a month of stalking my dream girl’s facebook page I finally found out who her baby daddy is. To get you up to speed I was shocked a while back to find out my dream girl was pregnant. I had never even seen her post anything about a man in her life. Well after a long wait she finally tagged her baby daddy to a post about the baby. I of course had to click on his name and check him out. And of course he is a low ranking military guy. Now don’t get me wrong I respect our military. But in this area most of the military guys are not the most upstanding people. And this guy is no different. So prediction-in a year or two my dream girl will be a single mother,left by her baby daddy when he got transfered or cheated on her with some other flavor of the week. But hey that is the life of a single guy-watching the hot girls fall for the cool guys that don’t deserve them and will treat them like crap.


My Dream Girl Is Pregnant

I was stalking around Facebook the other night checking out different posts by people like I do when I am bored. I checked out the Facebook page of a girl I have always had a huge crush on. This girl is beautiful. My total dream girl. What did I see? A post saying she was pregnant. That’s right my dream girl is pregnant. Now don’t get me wrong I always knew and know I would never have a chance with this girl. But what surprised me is that she never talks about a man in her life. She never posts pictures of her and a guy. And in fact I always thought maybe she was a lesbian because she always posted pictures of her and her hot model girlfriends. So now I am wondering who is the father? Is she dating someone and just not posting it? Even in the comments on her posts about being pregnant everyone just congratulates her. They never mention a boyfriend. Did she get pregnant by having a drunken one night stand? Did she intentionally get pregnant even though she says it was a surprise finding out she was pregnant? I mean no offense but there is so much birth control around if a girl gets pregnant she is either really stupid or wanted to get pregnant. And I have never considered this girl to be stupid. And who is the guy and what is he like? Is he some military guy from Fort Drum? Is he a professional? Is he unemployed? And does he ever know or care he is going to have a baby with this goddess? So many unanswered questions! One thing for sure,I will be checking out her page a lot to see if I can get an idea of exactly who this lucky guy is. This guy that knocked up my dream girl!


2017-And Still Single

Well we are almost a month into 2017-and I am still single. I wonder if Miss Right will find me this year. She seemed like she was in hiding during 2016. I mean I realize a lot of things happened in 2016 and she was probable busy. My Miss Right was probable busy helping Trump get elected President. Miss Right most likely was working with Obama to fight this Isis problem. Miss Right was obviously tied up helping my Cowboys win the NFC East. Oh and I am totally sure my Miss Right was completely taken up with helping to stop this whole Global Warming situation. But come on enough is enough….come on Miss Right…put all this dam community service aside and find me already!


Scam Girls

I never thought I would fall for it-but I did. You see there is a large group of girls on the internet that try to scam guys. They try to get them to send them money with the promises they want to meet but need some help to get by. I always have thought I was smart about all this. When I start talking to a girl off one of the dating websites I always try to look her up to make sure she is real. Well I started texting a girl yesterday off the Seekingarrangement website I have been on for about a year. We were texting back and forth. I searched her number on facebook and found her profile. Everything seemed legit. She said she wanted a long term arrangement with an older guy. We talked until about 5pm. Then she said she was trying to get money for her baby sitter and gas in the car and if I would send her some money. She even said she was sorry she was asking and would pay me back when she got paid next week. So I sent her $50 through Paypal. She said thank you so much. I said your welcome. And that was it. I texted her a few times after that and no response. I sent her a friend request on facebook and she blocked me. I had fallen for it. A scam girl had gotten me! The funny part about the whole thing is she could have gotten way more from me if she had kept talking to me and kept me going. I mean seriously $50 is not much,hell I spent more then that on lunch yesterday. But it’s just the point I got had. But you live and learn. But one thing is for sure-if your on seekingarrangement.com and start talking to a girl with lots of tatoos from Elmira Ny that calls herself Hannah,don’t send her money! You can thank me later for saving you money!

War Is Coming

People don’t want to admit it but war is coming between the U.S. and North Korea. North Korea is getting close to having a long range Nuclear missile that can hit the U.S. Americans don’t have the stomach for war but they need to get it and fast. If North Korea is allowed to get a missile that can strike our home land the party is over. The war is not going to be pretty. Lots of people in South Korea will die and so will American soldiers. But war is the only way to stop the mad man in the North. The left wing Liberals,liberal media and lots of gutless Americans think that we can talk to the leader of North Korea to get him to stop his Nuclear and missle programs. But that just won’t work. The more we talk the more he keeps building. He now has a million man army. Now to be honest-again something the Liberal media will not tell you-a lot of those million soldiers in the North are just teenagers. When the real fighting starts a lot of that million is going to run home to mommie. Right now the boys think they are cool in a uniform fighting for their country,but when the bullets and bombs fly the coolness will end and they will drop their arms and run. But there will still be soldiers that fight. The war will start shortly with an air campaign. Once our bombings of the North start then North Korea will start bombing South Korea. Then China will get in as well as Japan. If we are lucky the Russians might sit this one out. They have no real interest in that area of the world and they know they have their hands full in Syria. The war will be short but bloody. And President Trump will carry the blame,when he is actually doing what Presidents before him should have done. They should have stopped North Korea long ago before they were strong enough to give us a battle. But yes America war is coming-so get ready for it!


Why Obama Care Didn’t Work

President Trump is now in the process of repealing and replacing Obama Care. Everyone knows Obama Care didn’t work,even if they do not want to admit it. What a lot of people don’t know is why it didn’t work. It is very simple-Obama Care didn’t work because to many people were forced to buy insurance. The insurance industry is a business,and as a business they need to make a profit. Insurance companies rely on more people having insurance then actually use it. But when Obama Care mandated that everyone had to buy insurance people instantly wanted to use the insurance they purchased. Before,when people didn’t have insurance if they got a cold they stayed in bed,had chicken soup and recovered in a few days. Now with people being forced to buy insurance you can bet as soon as they even got the sniffles they went to the doctor. Before Obama Care people bought insurance for emergencies. The people who had insurance knew that some day they would need it for a major illness,but did not use it for the slightest ailment. The new health care plan that has been introduced does not have a mandate. If they keep that then this new health care law should do fine.


Hollywood Is Out Of Touch

After watching and listing to some of the actors and actresses in the past week talk about President Trump I now know that Hollywood is out of touch with main stream America. Hollywood just can not deal with the fact that their views do not reflect American values. What is worst is Hollywood can not deal with losing the election. Clinton did in deed win the popular vote. But what people don’t want to admit is Clinton won that popular vote by winning NYC and the LA/Hollywood areas. A lot of people live in these areas but their values are not the values of main stream America. Clinton did not win the working voters in Michigan or the farmers in the Midwest. She did not win the Southern voters in the bible belt. Clinton did not win the retired population in Florida. The protesters this past week are showing this generations true colors. A generation that has always gotten a trophy even if they finished last. A generation that has always gotten their own way-from Gay rights to Womens equal rights. A generation that has been able to work less because the government will give them a hand out to make ends meet. Well Hollywood and NYC better buckle their seat belts because the next four years and beyond are going to be a very bumpy ride. President Trump is in the White House and main stream America has taken back their country!


President Trump In 7 More Days

Well its been a long road but in just 7 more days we will have a new President. The last year and a half has been up and down. For a while I actually had my doubts if Trump could do it. But he did! And it is pretty obvious Clinton supporters thought for a long time that she would be the next President. Hotels in the Washinton DC area reported a huge number of cancellations because Clinton supporters had already made reservations planning to come to see their candidate take the Oath of Office. Now most hotels are booked back up again with Trump supporters. To get a room in the Washington DC area next week it will cost over $1,000 a night. Who knows what the next four years will be like. Maybe Trump will be a great President and maybe he won’t. I am certain of one thing however,the liberal media is going crazy trying to figure out what happened. They still will not admit that they were out of touch with main stream America. The liberal media thought what they believed was what America believed. Trump hit a nerve with Americans. When I say Americans I am not talking about people in NYC or LA. Those people do not reflect true Americans. True Americans think the government has gotten out of control,that there is to much interference in our lives and special interest groups like the Gaye and Lesbian groups have gotten way to much attention over the past 8 years. America took their country back and next week their leader will take control of a country wanting and needing a change. God Bless President Trump and God Bless the USA!
