No. 446: In which octogenarians race, future doctors suit up and the Mouse House roars

  Middle of the road: Welcome to Wednesday, dear readers, as we reach the midpoint of another busy week of socioeconomic innovation. It’s Oct. 16 out there – Boss’s Day in the United States and Canada, when we salute the fair and loveable leaders who sign our checks and keep the ship on course. Alternates: Those less eager to celebrate their supervisory situation might consider World Food Day, or perhaps World Anesthesia Day would help….


No. 445: On masters, laureates and ketchup (with robots and spaceships, too)

  Playoff atmosphere: They’re waving us in, dear readers, as another classic week of autumnal socioeconomic innovation rounds third and speeds toward home. (On the subject of fall classics, with the juggernaut Yankees kicking off yet another American League Championship Series this weekend, consider this argument for a shorter baseball season and longer playoffs.) Equal slice of the pie: It’s Oct. 11 out there, worthy of note for many reasons, including National Coming Out Day…


No. 444: In which supernovas explode, Northwell’s blood flows and Nikola Tesla goes Hollywood

On your Marc: It’s Oct. 9…


No. 443: On Ken Morrelly, the LIREDC’s highest hopes, Sputnik and the Queen of the Damned

  Ten-four, good buddy: Breaker, breaker, dear readers, and thanks for having your ears on as we keep the left door closed, put the hammer down and speed toward another well-earned weekend. It’s Friday out there, Oct. 4 to be precise, which of course means it’s 10-4 and National CB Radio Day, first proclaimed in 1978 by President Jimmy Carter to salute the Citizen Band as an emergency resource and to honor enthusiasts. Off the…


No. 442: Snoopy and Gandhi in ‘The Twilight Zone’ – and puppy love at the SBDC

  Fall for it: Don’t let the thermometer fool you – it’s actually autumn, dear readers, and we’ll be bundled up soon enough! Whatever the hell Mother Nature is smoking, welcome to Wednesday, Oct. 2, as we hurdle the hump of this latest, very busy week of socioeconomic innovation. A stitch in time: To our many readers in Indonesia, a festive Batik Day, celebrating the Asian nation’s traditional cloth – officially recognized in 2009 by…


No. 441: Golden in Montauk, healthy at Hofstra and an anniversary with a Big A

  End run: Protect the ball and follow your blockers, dear readers, as we break from the scrum of another busy workweek and sprint toward the first weekend of Fall 2019. It’s Friday out there, and a rare one indeed, when even Forbes is excited about the New York Giants. Make a day of it: It’s Sept. 27 and that brings an unusual selection of “holidays” – Ancestor Appreciation Day, Hug a Vegetarian Day, National…
