Long Island Woman Receives Special Tribute On Her 100th Birthday


CBS New York

BAY SHORE, N.Y. (CBSNewYork) — A Long Island woman received special honors on Monday as she celebrated her 100th birthday.

As TV 10/55 Long Island Bureau Chief Richard Rose reported, even as she enters her second century, she’s still very active in her community.

There was hearty applause from hundreds of well-wishers in Bay Shore, along with hugs, kisses and birthday wishes for a woman born during World War I and who immigrated to America from Italy with her family.

“I was only 3 months old when I came over, so from 1915 on,” said Mary Magnani.

Magnani is a rock star to the folks who know her so well. The longtime Suffolk County resident was first a teacher for more than 30 years and then a volunteer at Good Samaritan Hospital since it opened in 1959.

Coworking as a Business Opportunity


David Cummings on Startups

As the coworking space continues to gain attention, especially with the growth of the tech industry and reports of WeWork raising $335M at a valuation of almost $5B, more potential investors are drawn to the market. With the Atlanta Tech Village, we’ve had the chance to learn first-hand about coworking and flexible office space for over two years now, and have several thoughts on the market.

  • Allows repurposing of existing office space into a higher value offering
  • Provides greater efficiency for business expenses like internet access, conference rooms, break rooms, etc. (e.g. with a direct lease, many items are dedicated that don’t need to be dedicated)

Cons

  • No barriers to entry…

Renewed emphasis on low-carb eating


Later On

My weight crept up, and when I read this post at DietDoctor.com, I realized why: I have fallen into eating more carbs. I like the Picadillo recipe, but I did realize how intensely carb-heavy raisins are—and I get too many raisins in a portion. As he points out in the post:

And my latest HbA1C was not 5.7% as it has been, but 6.0%: pre-diabetic. (Got the lab report today.) That is probably due to a combination of more carbs and more weight. So now I’m watching it.

If I’m honest, it wasn’t just the raisins in the picadillo. There were also a number (in two digits) of chocolate truffles over the past few weeks, dessert when we ate dinner in a restaurant—plus the bread at the restaurant and in a sandwich… I’m sure if I had been tracking my food I would find plenty of carbs sneaking in.
