first_imgHOBOKEN — Kurt Gardiner said last week that he will be running as an independent candidate in this year’s November election for one of three at-large council seats.Gardiner currently serves on the North Hudson Sewerage Authority as a Hoboken commissioner (for which members receive a $5,000 stipend) and has done so since February 2016.He was also elected to the Hoboken Democratic Committee, where he serves on the executive committee as the sergeant at arms. He ran for freeholder in 2011 but was unsuccessful.“I am committed to Hoboken’s future and plan to stay here for many more years,” said Gardiner in an email. ”There is a dearth of Hoboken specific experience on the City Council slates overall and I am one of the most knowledgeable and principled candidates running.”Gardiner said he hopes to tackle five top issues if elected: preventing overdevelopment, updating the Master Plan, further infrastructure investment in flooding, providing more parking, and traffic. Gardiner joins 12 other candidates for the three at-large council seats. For more information keep watching hudsonreporter.com. ×last_img read more

Trail Mix: Aryk Crowder Video Premiere!

first_imgStanding at the intersection of two busy roads in the heart of his hometown of Chicago is the perfect metaphor for the music Aryk Crowder creates. Crowder’s music, like Chicago’s bustling downtown traffic patterns, is a mash up of influences, from blues and R&B to groove laden pop and hip hop.Back in 2014, Crowder released the first of his 2 x 4 EP series. The second installment, 2 x 4, Vol. 2, dropped last week. Opting for a simpler approach to the recording process, Crowder presents the songs on the new EP almost as skeletons for future endeavors. Though complete in their own rite, Crowder offers that the songs could be ripe for future evolution.“Similar to how 2 x 4s are the framework for a home, most of these songs are similar in that they are the framework for what could be larger arrangements,” says Crowder. “I decided to give them a stripped down approach to let the song itself speak. Maybe someday I’ll rerecord them, but for now I like the delivery of simplicity.”While I have been grooving to the new EP since I got it, I am even more excited for what the blog brings this week. Premieres always get me a bit tickled, and Trail Mix is excited to offer fans and new listeners the first chance to check out the video for “What You Want,” the kickoff track from the brand new EP.Aryk Crowder has a run of shows in New York City early next month. For more information on him, how you can get your hands on the new EP, or when Aryk Crowder might be coming to a stage near you, please check out his website.last_img read more

Get A Fresh Look For Spring With Alure Home Improvements

first_imgSign up for our COVID-19 newsletter to stay up-to-date on the latest coronavirus news throughout New York Sponsored Content Brought To You By Alure Home ImprovementsSpring is coming into full bloom in the weeks ahead, so naturally your gaze might wander from the flowers in your garden to the exterior and interior of your house. How does it hold up? Are you happy with the look of your place? Maybe now is the time to freshen its indoor and outdoor appearance—especially if you’ve been thinking about it all winter long.If you plan to sell your home, you can use neutral and traditional colors because they convey a look that is warm and inviting, say realtors. According to Consumer Reports, blue is an effective hue when you want to sell. But forget green or orange. Eccentric colors may turn you on—especially if they dominate your wardrobe—but they’re pretty sure to turn off any potential homebuyers. You want to make a great first impression.But why stop there? Why not consider lasting impressions?Because no matter whether you’re selling or staying, you want your house to have curb appeal for as long as you own it. As home expert Bob Vila advises, you should only pick the hues for your home’s exterior that you’ll love coming home to every day.Of course, it all depends on your house, whether it gets sunlight or shade, where it faces, and what kind of trees are nearby. Consider its place and its physical elements before you choose your colors.You want some suggestions? That’s what your friends at Alure Home Improvements are there for. Try off-white. It’s a classic, traditional look, a touch of cream accented with a formal taste of coolness. Of course, if you don’t want off-white, why not just go for white? A white clapboard-like look is a classic with timeless appeal. But you may not want to go too stark so try adding some creamy yellow undertones to the white you pick.A putty color is a blend of warm taupe and gray hues, colors that blend in with your home’s natural surroundings, especially if your house has a lot of landscaping, that can be quietly inspiring. It’s a great color if you have stone in the foundation or on the walkways. Speaking of taupe, by itself it’s a perfect natural exterior paint because it evokes a classic neutral sentiment. If you want to play it safe, you can’t go wrong with taupe.Further on the spectrum lies gray. There are plenty of subtle shades to choose from, like driftwood, for example. One popular choice combines Benjamin Moore Copley Gray trimmed with Benjamin Moore Elephant Tusk. Perhaps you’d like to consider deep blue grays because they can convey a nautical, serene emotion. It’s also a good bet if you want to offset it with white trim.If you want to go in another direction, try yellow. But look before you leap. It’s a color that’s bound to be bold if you’re not careful, so you might want to rein it in with a pale shade. Tone it down and lighten it up, and you’ll get the cheerful hue that will make you smile. Light blue makes a dramatic statement, so you probably want to consider the architectural elements your house may have and highlight them with a reddish-brown trim. This combination can be a real showstopper, if that’s the effect you’re aiming for. Certainly, it will make people stop and take a look. You just want to make sure you’re comfortable with seeing it yourself.The last thing you want to feel when you enter your house is like you’re walking into a black hole. So, to play it safe, consider whites, grays and tans—shades that endure. You can go trendy with your door if you want to make a difference, perhaps a lemon yellow or a burgundy and olive. But don’t even think about school-bus yellow or fire-engine red, because those colors are more suitable for some kind of flashy commercial enterprise. And if you want to put your house up for sale, think mid-tone blues and monochromatic color schemes that mix different shades and tints for the trim. But you’re not done until you select the right finish. Experts say that flat and satin finishes are right for siding, because they reduce reflections and hide any material flaws, from age, perhaps. To add some shine to your doors and trim, pick semi-gloss paints for a nice contrast.Click here to learn more about Alure Home ImprovementsAnd remember, long before you arrive at the final look you want for you home, be sure to consult with your friends at Alure Home Improvements, because they’ve been making homes look better for years.last_img read more

Liverpool manager expects Premier League return to be ‘intense’

first_img “We have to do it, unfortunately, without the best boost in the world and the best kick in your ass in the right moment in the world, from the Anfield crowd. “That’s how it is. I never understood in life why you always want things you don’t have, you cannot have. In this moment we cannot have that, so let’s take the rest and make the absolute best of it.” Some figures in English football have criticised the return to training as being too early – with Watford captain Troy Deeney saying he will not take part due to health concerns for his infant son – but Klopp feels that now is the right time. He said: “Nobody wants to bring anybody into danger, but I think with all the things we know about, sticking to the social distancing rule – especially in the first part – with testing as often as possible and stuff like this, the players will be safe. “Germany showed it already – a couple of players had a positive test during the long period, they trained for five weeks and now they play already, stuff like this and they had altogether 10 or 12 positive tests. I hope that we are now in England on the right side of the thing as well. read also:Man Utd step up pursuit of Koulibaly after ahead of Liverpool’s transfer interest “It’s all about when – but you need to re-open step by step different parts of life again.

Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side are unbeaten at Anfield this term but along with the rest of the Premier League may have to play without any supporters in their ground next term The English top-flight was halted in March amid the coronavirus pandemic, leaving the Reds two wins shy of their first league title in 30 years. Klopp’s charges will return to training on Wednesday, albeit initially in small groups. “I was over the moon, I would say,” Klopp told the club’s official website when asked how he felt about his players getting back to work at Melwood. “I couldn’t wait for a while now, so I am really happy that we are able to do this again – going back to Melwood, having small group training and stuff like this. “It will be intense, for the coaches especially because a lot of players in small groups means a lot of sessions, but we’ve had enough time to rest so we will be fine. Can’t wait.” On Tuesday it was announced that coronavirus tests carried out on 748 Premier League players and staff returned six positive results across three clubs, with no names disclosed. It is hoped fixtures could recommence in June, with Klopp calling on his side to be ready to hit the ground running. “When we start, it goes really again for everything. The competition will make the intensity,” he said. “So, it’s not about, ‘Oh, Liverpool have to win two games’. By the way, we have to win two games when we start – it’s not ‘only two’, it’s two. It’s not less or more. “We have to win them, it’s not that we want to win the last two or whatever and come through somehow. We want to play the best possible football, better than other teams fighting for the Champions League, fighting to stay in the league.center_img Loading… last_img read more
