Hyper-local politics matter and Schneps Media is putting their foot to the pedal with a series of debates in every city council district as well as for each borough president, the Manhattan District Attorney, and the mayor’s and comptroller’s race.

The debates, which start May 3 and run throughout the month, will be hosted as Zoom webinars by Schneps Media’s daily amNY Metro and the largest group of hyper-local news outlets covering every neighborhood in the city.

“These debates, among other things, will focus on each candidates’ vision for the recovery of the city on both the citywide and local neighborhood level,” said Schneps Media CEO Joshua Schneps. “As the largest media company serving the local New York City Metropolitan area, it is our mission to inform residents of the platform and views of candidates seeking to become our public servants.”

Participating candidates in the debates will weigh in on the most issues currently before the city. This will include the role of the police and public safety, education, small business development, senior issues, a tourism plan that will bring visitors to both main attractions and local commercial strips, and the need to bring in both big and small development in growth sectors such as technology.

Schneps Media Political Editor-in-Chief Stephen Witt noted the importance that voters pay attention to their local city council elections as well as the citywide election for mayor and comptroller.

“City council members serve as direct links for voters to city hall. It is the go-to office whether you want a pothole or sidewalk in front of your house fixed, or are seeking access to small business loans through government money allocated for the COVID recovery,” said Witt.

The debates come with a full-court press to educate and engage voters, who are being asked for the first time to rank their choices for the political offices at hand. 

Under ranked-Choice voting (RCV) the city requires voters to rank their top five candidates in order of preference on their ballots instead of picking just one. If no candidate takes more than 50 percent of the first choice ballot picks, the count goes on. The candidate with the fewest votes is eliminated and the voters second choice is distributed. 

This process goes on until one candidate obtains 50 percent of the vote and is declared the winner.

So throw some popcorn in the microwave and turn on your favorite smart device to help inform you on choosing who will best represent your interests in city hall.

How and where to bird watch in Brooklyn

Spread the news

 Sites

from Michael Novakhov on Inoreader

Bird watching has soared in popularity during the pandemic, with pent up Brooklynites taking up the hobby en masse as a safe way to get outdoors while social distancing — leading many to discover a passion for the rich feathered wildlife around them, according to a seasoned borough birder.

“There’s this impetus to see what’s there and what haven’t I seen all along,” Dennis Hrehowsik, president of the century-old Brooklyn Bird Club, told Brooklyn Paper. “You’re looking at all this stuff that was there this whole time under your nose and you didn’t realize it.”

The, which does work to advance the hobby, has seen its membership roughly doubled during the past year to almost 400 birders, according to Hrehowsik.

For those interested in taking up the avian pastime, there are many great places in Brooklyn to watch them at different times of the year.

New York City offers great bird watching three seasons out of the year, with only summer being the exception, as many birds flee the city during the hotter months. Still, the upcoming spring weeks offer a prime time to spot flocks of colorful birds heading north for breeding.

Brooklyn sits along the so-called Atlantic Flyway, a north-south migration route stretching from Greenland to the Caribbean and passing through the Eastern Seaboard.

“Even though we built this city here, this is still an important path for them,” Hrehowsik said. “This area has been a crucial area on the migration path for birds for about 40,000 years.”

The club hosts three walks a week in Prospect Park and big upcoming event on the feathered calendar is International Migratory Bird Day, which takes place on the second weekend in May, or Saturday May 8 this year, when migration in the Western Hemisphere is in full swing.

How to start?

Hrehowsik advises to start by looking for larger birds that you know and are easier to find, such as ducks and other waterfowl. As you discover unknown birds, you can look them up and expand your knowledge along the way.

“Look at big birds that are easy to see and take note of what you know and get a really good feeling for what you recognize,” he said. “And then you find something you don’t know and you look that up.”

For example, you can try to spot Ruddy Ducks, Northern Shovelers, Great Egrets, Great Blue Herons or Laughing Gulls.

Song birds are smaller and harder to see, but there are many beautiful specimens, such as the Northern Parula, the Yellow-rumped Warbler, the Song Sparrow, the White-throated Sparrow, the Common Grackle, along with robins and cardinals.

Peak time of day for bird watching is between sunrise and about 11 am, and again around 5-5:30 pm, Hrehowsik said.

Where to go bird watching?

Because of the dense city environment, birds seek refuge in urban meadows like Prospect Park, Owl’s Head Park in Bay Ridge, or Green-Wood Cemetery. Luckily for birders, this allows the watchers to find more species in a much smaller area, compared to more rural pastures, where the animals spread out more.

“We have this effect where you can see many more species in an area of Prospect Park than for the same area in the Adirondacks,” Hrehowsik said. “You really get them all funneling through these areas.”

A White-throated Sparrow.Wikimedia Commons

The birder recommends looking for wooded areas with understory growth, because many birds feed off of the bugs in shrubs and heaps of leaves beneath trees. 

“Anywhere that looks like the woods is a really good place right now,” he said.

The Brooklyn Bird Club also has a handy map for good spots around the borough. 

A walk around Prospect Park Lake which has a lot of mature trees harboring insects, brushy areas, and wet spots, is a great place to start in Brooklyn’s Back Yard. Nearby Lookout Hill also offers a great vantage point 177 feet above sea level.

Quack: The Ruddy Duck.Wikimedia Commons

Or head to Bush Terminal in Sunset Park or Shirley Chisholm State Park in East New York. Other coastal hotspots like Jamaica Bay are busier during the fall and winter months.

The best way to start birding is to just go out and do it, if possible with a group of fellow bird watchers, so Hrehowsik.

“Birding is like learning a language, you can only learn so much from books and tapes, you have to immerse yourself,” he said.

Goldman Reveals Its Favorite “Crypto-Exposed” Stocks

Goldman Reveals Its Favorite “Crypto-Exposed” Stocks

Wall Street’s infatuation with cryptos is shifting from a sordid and steamy love affair to full-blown full regalia wedding ceremony on the Caymans, which is understandable in a world where there is no fundamental analysis involved in picking stonks and so one can just as well make the “selection” of risky asset into an enjoyable gamble and with countless cryptos still soaring triple digits any given day, the retail public is increasingly gravitating toward the digital currencies which come embedded with the promise of overnight riches.

It is therefore hardly a coincidence that after years of furiously bashing bitcoin (remember when Jamie Dimon warned his employees they would be fired if they bought bitcoin?) JPM finally admitted what we said all along – that its almost daily hitpieces had one intention only: to convince its own clients to sell tokens to its own prop desk…

JPMorgan’s daily bitcoin hitpiece is out. Just how bad does JPM prop want to be long this?

— zerohedge (@zerohedge) January 25, 2021

… and on Monday, the largest US bank unveiled its own, actively managed bitcoin fund.

It is also hardly a coincidence that one day after JPM revealed its scheme, that Goldman’s Ben Snider last night published a report looking at blockchain-exposed stocks, and pitching them to the bank’s clients as all of Wall Street now “suddenly and inexplicably” turns from crypto permabear to uberbull.

In this trading reco, Snider screens for US stocks with blockchain and cryptocurrency exposure (the screen yields 19 stocks with market caps greater than $1 billion; and on average each stock has outperformed the S&P 500 by 34% YTD (+46% vs. +12%) alongside an 86% rise in the price of Bitcoin and a 156% rally in the Bloomberg Galaxy Crypto Index). While these stocks lagged the market by 10% in the past two weeks as cryptocurrency prices dipped, they outperformed by 2% on Monday as cryptos reversed from their weekend slam.

First, Goldman shows the Venn diagram below to illustrate how it picked its universe of crypto-linked stocks:

  • Text search – Any relevant finding warrants 1 point; 10 or more findings warrant 3 points; explicit mention in Bloomberg or FactSet company description warrants 3 points
  • Betas to Bitcoin– A beta ranking in the top 25% of stocks warrants 1 point; a beta ranking in the top 10% of stocks warrants 3 points
  • Index and ETF membership – Membership in any index warrants 1 point; membership in two or more indices warrants 3 points

In its crypto screen, the bank includes any stocks in the universe with six or more points (amusingly, JPMorgan somehow has ended up here). Effectively, this means that each constituent must screen as highly exposed in at least two of the three approaches.

This approach results in a screen of 19 US stocks with market caps over $1 billion and high exposure to blockchain technology and/or cryptocurrency. Finally, the pitch itself:

“On average,these stocks have dramatically outperformed the S&P 500 during the last several months alongside the surge in the price of Bitcoin. An equal-weighted portfolio of the stocks has demonstrated roughly 60% correlations with Bitcoin and the Bloomberg Galaxy Crypto Index during the last several months, compared with 20% correlations for the S&P 500. Eleven of the 19 constituents are in the Software & Services  industry group and four are in Financials.”

Translation: for those PMs and fund managers who are sick of generating S&P-level returns and want to track the best performing asset of the year…

… buy a basket of these 19 stocks and chill.

Finally, here is the full list:

            Staunton, April 24 – Russia may be extending its control over the Black Sea at the very moment Moscow is being praised for pulling back its land forces from the Ukrainian border given that the Russian defense ministry has just confirmed that it has closed additional portions of the Black Sea.

            That decision, announced without much fanfare, appears in the most recent bulletin of the Administration for Navigation and Oceanography of the Russian Ministry of Defense (topwar.ru/182345-rossija-podtverdila-zakrytie-chasti-akvatorii-chernogo-morja-dlja-opredelennyh-sudov-i-korablej.html).

            According to its provisions, because of plans for exercises, Russia is closing three districts in the Black Sea from today through the end of October. Moscow had already made a similar declaration closing off the Sea of Azov to outside shipping, in clear violation of international law (windowoneurasia2.blogspot.com/2021/04/russia-violating-international-law-by.html).

            The Russian move in the Black Sea is even more in violation of international law because there are disputes over the status of the Sea of Azov, which Moscow argues is an internal body of water. But extending such claims to portions of the Black Sea is even more in violation of Law of the Sea and other international rules.

            Moreover, unless and until Moscow rescinds this announcement and pulls back its ships from any effort to enforce its provisions, there is a risk that the Russian military will retain the capacity to attack Ukraine from the sea even if it has pulled back from the Ukrainian border on land.

            At the very least, Russia’s publication of this announcement shows that the supposed end of a Russian threat to Ukraine has ended at least for the time being should be treated with extreme skepticism as indeed some experts have suggested. (See topwar.ru/182368-dymovaja-zavesa-v-shvecii-ne-poverili-v-otvod-rossijskoj-armii-ot-ukrainskih-granic.html.)

            That is because Moscow has moved ships with landing craft capabilities from its Caspian Flotilla into the region, vessels that could be used against Ukraine from the sea

(jamestown.org/program/moscow-moving-15-warships-from-caspian-sea-to-waters-off-ukraine/and windowoneurasia2.blogspot.com/2021/04/moscows-use-of-caspian-flotilla-against.html).
