Subway acrobats, dancers and musicians on Tuesday decried what they said was heavy-handed policing, gathering outside City Hall to join critics of a police clampdown on minor offenses. One activist suggested a temporary halt to subway performer arrests, which have spiked this year as officers zeroed in on minor crimes to set a tone of not tolerating lawlessness. Zenon "Tito" Laguerre, a 34-year-old construction worker and subway acrobat who said he was arrested last week said, "We dance. We sing. We're not criminals. ... We shouldn't really get locked up for showing our talent."
Federal regulators have signed off on a new type of flu vaccine with a booster in it, with the hope of better protecting seniors from the virus. It's the first flu vaccine to include what's called an adjuvant — a compound that helps stimulate the immune system so that a vaccine is more effective. The new vaccine is specifically aimed at people over 65, who typically have a poor immune response to vaccines. Seqirus, a newly formed company that makes the vaccine, told NBC News that it should be available next year. Tests show that the new vaccine, which is called Fluad, works at least as well as the ones already on the market, and may boost a senior's protection from H3N2, one of the currently circulating strains of influenza.
Back in 2008, a 6-month-old named Ntombi from South Africa began living with comedian Chris Rock and his family. The girl stayed in the family house ever since. Ntombi was even enrolled in a New Jersey school. But Chris Rock has not seen the 7-year-old girl who lived with him since she was an infant in more than a year. Everything changed last year when Chris and Malaak began divorce proceedings. Rock maintained his relationship with his 2 biological daughters but hasn't seen Ntombi since the split. Around the same time as divorce docs were filed, South African officials opened an investigation to determine how the child went from their country to the U.S., when there was no evidence of a legal adoption. Sources connected to Chris say he never signed legal docs to adopt her, and bringing her over to the U.S. was all Malaak's doing. It's unclear how and why the biological parents allowed Ntombi to live with the Rock family for years.
First there was wine in a bottle. Then there was wine in a box. Now, there is wine in a can. But not just any can, a MANCAN. Although it's not the first canned wine on the market, California based company MANCAN has created one of the first ever man-specific wine products, or so it professes. MANCAN founder Graham Veysey tells Mashable that he first thought of the product after visiting a bar one night after work. He also notes that the main inspiration for MANCAN was to simplify wine consumption. Veysey added that he hopes that wine in a can will prevent easy spillage from cups and glasses wine is traditionally served in.
