Viscardi And The Islanders: A Lasting Bond


Every year, the top event at the Viscardi Center in Albertson is its annual Celebrity Sports Night.

This spring, the center celebrated its 47-year partnership with the New York Islanders by inviting former Islanders great Bobby Nystrom as its star guest. Nystrom was joined by current Islander star Ryan Pulock and such former teammates as John Tonelli, Butch Goring, and Steve Webb.

The Islanders all signed autographs and posed for photos with eager students. Nystrom was given a Lifetime Achievement Award and Tim Leiweke, CEO of Oak View Group, with the Corporate Leadership Award. This year’s Roy Campanella Award recipient was Steph Roach, the world’s first CrossFit Level 2 Trainer with Cerebral Palsy and who attended Henry Viscardi School for several years.

Also attending the fundraiser was Olympic figure skater Emily Hughes and former New York Jets Wesley Walker and John Nitti.

The night was about more than fundraising and a cocktail reception. It also featured seniors on the Viscardi wheelchair basketball team being awarded medals from the Islanders, while winding up with a moving rendition of “Somewhere Over the Rainbow” by a group of Viscardi students.

The evening was special in that it also recognized the special link between the Islanders and the Viscardi Center. That began as noted, in 1976, as America celebrated its bicentennial. Islanders’ players, including Nystrom, traveled to Albertson to take part in a spirited game of wheelchair hockey. A

video on how the relationship took off can be viewed by googling “Celebrating Our Partnership with Long Island’s Home Team, the NY Islanders.”

That bond was forged when a girlfriend of Islanders defenseman Gerry Hart suggested such an annual game to the then-Viscardi Center’s president, Henry Viscardi, Jr. The irrepressible Viscardi said yes and nearly a half century later, the bond is going strong.

Still, the evening was a melancholy event.

Hart died only days earlier on May 18 at age 75. Nystrom remembered not only Hart but also Clark Gillies, Jean Potvin and Mike Bossy, other members of the 1970s Islanders who have died since January 2022.

“He just had a very good way of meeting people,” Nystrom said of Gerry Hart in an interview with, adding that Islanders’ fans were “the best fans in the world. They treated us like kings.”

“I think the most important thing is the longevity of this place and what they do with the kids,” Nystrom said speaking of The Viscardi Center. “It was something that we looked forward to every year and I think the kids loved it also. We also had the opportunity to watch the kids develop, and that’s one of the most rewarding things to me.”

“One of our first events was here and one of the students that I played against is here tonight,” added Steve Webb. “I told him, ‘You guys played pretty intense and I’ve probably still got some bruises on my shins from that.’ It was pretty impressive.

“It’s the overall community the kids have here that’s giving people the opportunity to soar in an environment. They have comfort and they have people that support them and can assist them during the journey. That radiates for everybody when we walk in the door.”

“It’s important for these communities and for the kids that are able to come to the school here and get to experience different sports and different opportunities for them,” Islanders defenseman Ryan Pulock said. “The work they do here is amazing and just being able to come out this night and show my support is huge. I look forward to doing that more in the future.”

New York Governor Kathy Hochul delivered her own tribute to both of these durable institutions, while Dr. Chris Rosa, Viscardi president and CEO, lauded the efforts of UBS Arena to create an inclusive barrier-free design providing accessibility to the disabled.

State Senator Patricia CanzoneriFitzpatrick (R-Malverne) tweeted:

It was a pleasure to attend The Viscardi Center’s Celebrity Sports Night! This event is held in support of children and adults with disabilities who rely on The Viscardi Center for education, employment, and empowerment services.”

The Viscardi Center, a network of non-profit organizations, provides a lifespan of services that educate, employ, and empower people with disabilities. Its programs and services include Pre-K through High School education (to age 21), school-towork transition services, vocational training and job placement, digital accessibility services, entrepreneurship, veteran employment and workforce diversification assistance to children, adolescents, and adults with disabilities and businesses.

Roslyn’s Their Destination: Pietro’s Set For Long Island Move


The impending closure of The Jolly Fisherman restaurant creates a vacuum in the vital business section that is downtown Roslyn.

The food and service was great. So too was the incomparable view from the restaurant to the Roslyn Duck Pond. There was never the possibility that the building would become vacant.

The Jolly Fisherman is soon to be no more. However, fine dining, service and the view will remain with the establishment of a Pietro’s restaurant on the exact spot at 25 Main St.

Pietro’s, an Italian restaurant, located at 232 E. 43rd St., will be the new proprietors. There are similarities between the two establishments. The Jolly Fisherman is closing after an amazing 66-year run.

Pietro’s also has a long history. At the height of the Depression, it first opened in 1932 by three brothers: Luigi, Natale, and Pietro.

The current owner is Bill Bruckman, Jr. who purchased the restaurant. Bruckman said that up to 50 percent of his current customers are from Long Island. During the pandemic, Bruckman said that the Long Island clientele wasn’t coming into the city as much, plus many city dwellers were moving from Manhattan to the suburbs. It was time for the franchise to locate where they live.

Bruckman told the media that he was excited over the move. The Roslyn location is twice as spacious as the Manhattan restaurant. The Jolly Fisherman was legendary for seafood. Such delicacies wilk remain on the menu. The Roslyn Pietro’s will keep an emphasis on Italian food. The blue décor, Bruckman also told the media, would be changed. He added that the targeted Sept. 1 opening remains a likelihood.

Pietro’s comes to Roslyn with a high reputation. Ruth Reichl,, a food critic at The New York Times, hailed it for having “the best steak I have ever had.”

Another Timesman, Pete Wells, added in a recent review: “For my favorite veal parma in midtown Manhattan I go to Pietro’s, where tomatoes, cheese, breadcrumbs, and a thin cutlet - pounded until it covers the oval serving platter like a quilt on a feather-bed -fuses into one sublime entity that could be eaten with a spoon, like pudding. Pietro’s has been on E. 43rd Street since 1984, and in the

neighborhood since 1932. So many New York children have had their heights marked off on the wall by Pietro’s front door that it looks as if it belongs in the

house of the world’s most fertile grandmother. New generations are always being inducted into the cult of Shells a la Nat, a gratinéed pasta in bone marrow sauce

that is unique to Pietro’s.”

On its Facebook page, Pietro customers weighed in on their own dining experience.

“Excellent food, brilliant service, and a lovely atmosphere,” wrote Matthew Cooper. “I was staying on the opposite side of town but took the trip over here specifically to try this restaurant and I am very glad I did. The famous chopped salad was great. It has a good mix of veggies in with the greens and the dressing is a good complement. My main course was the chicken parmesan with a half order of fettuccini alfredo. The chicken parmesan’s pictures on Google Maps were why I came and it exceeded my expectations. The fettuccini alfredo was likewise delicious. I would be remiss if I did not also comment on the service - top notch. David, the manager, and Damian, my waiter, were both great and I got everything I wanted. I will definitely visit again.”

“The service was fantastic,” added Emily Robison. “I felt like our waiter was always checking on us and my water glass was never more than half empty. Fettuccine alfredo was perfect, creamy, and not too much garlic. The Caesar salad was great too.”

The Jolly Fisherman was a Roslyn institution. It will be missed. However, Pietro’s looks to be more than capable of filling the void and contributing greatly to the life of downtown Roslyn.

Zeldin Criticizes Hochul Over CUNY Controversy


Former four-term U.S. Congressman and 2022 New York Gubernatorial candidate Lee Zeldin has called on New York Governor Kathy Hochul to speak out against the City University of New York (CUNY) Law School commencement address by Fatima Mohammed, condemn the raging antisemitism consuming CUNY, and take decisive action.

“Kathy Hochul is a disgrace for hiding in silence. She refuses to demonstrate even an ounce of courage to lead in a critical moment like this. Hochul has become more terrified of her own shadow than she is motivated to tackle the greatest challenges facing our state. The situation at CUNY merits her serious attention and bold action. The CUNY administration needs to be overhauled, and until Jewish students and faculty can all feel welcome again on campus, taxpayer funding must be immediately suspended. On brand, Hochul is demonstrating zero passion, zero outrage, and zero vision.”

Revitalization grants are just one of the ways we help businesses on Long Island and in the Rockaways. For Moriches Field Brewing Company, a grant from our economic development program was a perfect fit to help them renovate a previously vacant property. A discount through our Vacant Space Revival Program saved them more than $4,000 on their electric bills, and rebates for upgrading to LED lighting are keeping them saving month after month.

Shakespeare’s Portfolio: How The Bard Prevailed


“He now belongs to the ages.”

So claimed Ben Jonson, William Shakespeare’s friend and contemporary upon the man’s passing in 1616 at age 52. Which has turned out to be the case.

Shockingly, it almost wasn’t so. Ten years after the man’s death, two of The Bard’s fellow actors, John Heminges and Henry Condell, collected the man’s 36 plays and published then in a folio, one complete with the world-famous engraving of the departed playwright.

The year 2016 was the 400th anniversary of Shakespeare’s death. This year is the quatercentenary of that folio.

In 1916, any number of U.S. Congressmen walked to the well of the U.S. House of Representatives to deliver mangled, but well-meaning homages to the playwright. I can’t recall the same thing happening at all in 2016. Years ago, I read that Sen. Robert F. Byrd (D---WVA) spent part of a legislative session re-reading the entire Shakespeare corpus. That I can believe.

A product of that Middle Ages, an epoch that placed much emphasis on scholarship, the young Shakespeare received a classical education. He duly studied Latin and Greek. He was especially drawn to Plutarch’s Lives , the famous series of brief biographies on the giants of the Roman Empire. In college, I had a professor who claimed that the playwright had a copy of that book on his deathbed.

Shakespeare married at 18 to Anne Hathaway, the prototypical girl-next-door who was eight years her husband’s senior. The couple had three children, one of whom, Hamnet, died at a young age.

His early manhood is known as Shakespeare’s “lost years.” Was he teaching for a living? Acting? Writing? In time, the young father made the move to London to support his family through theatre work.

Right place, right time. Both Queen Elizabeth I and her successor, King James, placed a premium on the arts. They subsidized London theaters and Shakespeare joined such peers as Jonson and Christopher Marlowe, in creating a new epoch, one that came of age as England itself was taking its first steps toward modernity. The English feudal system was being obliterated by the rise of commercial society. Shakespeare’s work, in part, was to take a glance backward to the ideals of honor, chivalry, and duty lest they be destroyed for good.

The ancient Greeks were famous for their bluntness. In their prose and verse they got straight to the point. Elizabethan England placed an emphasis on the language. Verse was more important than visuals. Shakespeare and his contemporaries had their work cut out for them. The man rose to the challenge. For this piece, I re-read only one play, King Richard III , a drama about a Hamlet-like king (he had that same sweet nature) who overplays his hand with a rival Count Bolingbroke, stealing land from the man and losing his kingdom in the process. John Gaunt, a legendary commander in the king’s army, lays out the stakes in this ode to the British Isles:

This royal throne of kings, this sceptered isle,

This earth of majesty, this seat of Mars, This other Eden, demi-paradise, This fortress built by Nature for herself Against infection and the hand of war, This happy breed of men, this little world, This precious stone set in the silver sea, Which serves it in the office of a wall Or as a moat defensive to a house, Against the envy of less happier lands, This blessed plot, this earth, this realm, this England.

What modern writer can match that eloquence? My choice would be Alexander Solzhenitsyn expressing his affection for Mother Russia. On the American front, there is the ringing poetry of Walt Whitman, which is stirring but lacking Shakespeare’s tragic sense. The American answer to The Bard must be Robert Frost’s “The Gift Outright,” an ode to American history and the American landscape. I fear that few Americans today are even allowed to express such love. (Concerning modern England, go with the immortal G.K. Chesterton: “While other talked of freedom, England talked of ale.”)

The Elizabethan emphasis on language goaded the man into greatness. Only consider the words the man literally invented: mountaineer, schoolboy, football, fair play, shooting star, radiance, dawn, ladybug, eyeball, love letter, mimic, zany, excitement, lonely, gloomy, useless, quarrelsome, worthless, dauntless, hot-blooded, well-behaved, successful, never-ending, laughable.

And then the timeless expressions: Every inch a king, A tower of strength, Wild-goose chase, Not budge an inch, In my heart of hearts, Eaten me out of house and home, Neither rhyme

nor reason, We have seen better days

There are my favorites: To be or not to be (stick that foot in the river of life,) There’s the rub (Do not expect many happy endings), and To thine own self be true (man’s got to look in the mirror each morning.)

Shakespeare today? One hates to ask. My children, in their high school and college days, were never assigned a play by the man, even relatively simple texts as Romeo and Juliet or Julius Caesar . Other parents have their own horror stories to tell.

Shakespeare’s words are powerful. They are not immortal. His poetry is no substitute for Scripture. Nor were they intended to be. Shakespeare wrote to entertain the throngs coming to see his plays at The Globe Theatre. Along the way, he made countless and lasting insights into the human condition.

Shakespeare’s decline matters greatly. A society without Shakespeare’s civilizing influence is destined to be a place rude, coarse, profane, and cynical. As with 1,001 great writers, the library card, plus Mr. Bezos’ Amazon, remains the last line of defense.

Summer Jam Held Successfully After County’s Shutdown Attempt


This year’s HOT 97 Summer Jam concert at UBS Arena reportedly went off without a hitch in early June, despite an eleventh-hour attempt by County Executive Bruce Blakeman’s administration to block a portion of the event’s scheduled performances.

On June 1, Blakeman’s adminstration filed court papers seeking to block the free, outdoor performances that were scheduled as part of Summer Jam’s June 4 lineup.

This year’s lineup of new and veteran performers, headlined by Bronx native Cardi B, was announced in early April. The event also featured performances and content in honor of the 50th anniverary of hip-hop falling this year.

In court filings, Nassau County leaders argued that the cost of providing police presence for the event would be too high, and that

previous installations of the annual concert had “presented threats to peace and order, requiring the intervention of law enforcement.”

The documents cited instances in 2015 and 2017 at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey, noting that conflicts arose and arrests were conducted in response to attendees’ frustration over either the event being sold out or over its entry protocols.

The attempt to bind organizers from holding the free, outdoor portion of this year’s event also stated, “At the 2021 Summer Jam at Madison Square Garden, one performer’s statements incited the crowd when he led a ‘f*ck the police’ chant.”

The county also alleged that Summer Jam had previously “created an atmosphere that fosters criminal behavior, disorderly conduct, trespasses, violence, and turmoil resulting in numerous arrests and injuries.”

The issue ended up getting resolved ahead of the concert, which seemingly went smoothly, according to follow-up posts and reporting on the event. But Blakeman’s administration had already drawn a fair

amount of attention in our region and in the U.S. hip-hop community for the relatively last-minute move.

Nassau County Legislator Carrié Solages, for one, was quick to criticize the actions of Blakeman and his team, both before and after the legal challenge was resolved.

“While it is typically my policy to never comment on County litigation, I must make an exception in this case. The harmful stereotyping contained within those papers is deeply insulting to the Black and Brown communities that form a

large portion of hip-hop’s dedicated fan base, and the dog-whistle rhetoric alluding to ‘riot-like behavior’ is particularly offensive,” Solages said in a June 2 statement, also calling the county’s actions “disingenuous.”

After the legal issue was resolved, Solanges commented, “Safeguarding public safety and enhancing quality of life for my constituents will always be my top priority as a Legislator. As a lifelong resident of this area, it is my tremendous honor and privilege to serve the diverse tapestry of

communities that form Nassau County’s Third Legislative District.” On June 3, Solages also noted that he had “every expectation that the Nassau County Police Department will patrol this event with the utmost professionalism and excellence as they have done throughout the year at UBS Arena-hosted events,” despite the roughly 24 hours of “unnecessary chaos” that Nassau County’s legal filings created. Immediately before the beginning of the concert, which Legislator Solages attended with family, he commented, “I am gratified that the 11th-hour political stunt by the County Executive’s administration – one that was tinged with obvious racial overtones – has failed to cancel any portion of today’s event. Moreover, I am happy to see that it has failed to dampen the enthusiasm of concertgoers – many of whom contribute to our economy as tourists ... [and] we must shift our focus toward ensuring that we never again experience this type of last-minute scrambling with any type of large-scale event.”

Why Not Hourly Oyster Bay To Hunters Point/Long Island City LIRR Service?

Both Hunters Point and Long Island City continue to grow with thousands of new residents, businesses and office workers. The LIRR currently runs a handful of trains AM rush hour in one direction westbound from Jamaica to Hunters Point and LIC and eastbound in the PM rush hour. Why wasn’t service added in both directions rush hour along with hourly off peak? The Hunters Point #7 subway station is just down the block from the LIRR Hunters Point Station. Two stops on the #7 in less than five minutes places you at Grand Central Terminal. There are easy connections to both street level and the 42nd Street Lexington Avenue station #4,5,& 6 subway lines. Contrast that attempting to reach street level from LIRR Grand Central Madison Terminal - 15 stories below ground. It requires 8 or more minutes upon arrival at Grand Central Madison before you can access the 42nd Street Lexington Avenue Subway Station. The LIRR Long Island City station is within walking distance to both the #7 Flushing Vernon Blvd. Jackson Ave station (one stop less than three minutes from Grand Central Terminal) and the LIC

NYC Economic Development Corporation private ferry landing with connections to 34th Street and Pier 11 adjacent to Wall Street and the Financial District.

Hourly service off peak and evenings could also include stops at Woodside, Forest Hills and Kew Gardens. Why not run this service beyond Jamaica to include the Oyster Bay Branch as well. Virtually all Oyster Bay branch trains terminate in Jamaica. Add stops to Hollis, Queens Village, Elmont UBS Arena, Bellrose and Floral Park. All

of the above would promote promised 40% LIRR increased service in Queens along with reverse rush hour and off peak commute opportunities. Why not run this service between Oyster Bay to Hunters Point and Long Island City hourly in both directions from 6 AM to Midnight. This would also offer Oyster Bay commuters consistent hourly service which is available on most other LIRR branches.

Cool, Healthy Food Beats The Heat

While it’s tempting to pick up store-bought coleslaw, potato salad, or fried chicken, those foods are generally pre-packaged and full of sodium and fat. There are some fresh fruits and some vegetables that can do the trick to satisfy a Summer picnic. They are vitamin-enriched and refreshing, convenient enough to bring to the beach or any BBQ. Cool summer salads with added fruit can also cool down your body temperature and keep you hydrated. Enjoy!

Our Crumbling Economy Needs The National Infrastructure Bank

The US economy is crumbling before our eyes. Inflation, banks failing, the Federal Reserve raising interest rates, and deteriorating infrastructure are all signs of troubling times. And the worst may be yet to come. Bailouts and band aids don’t work. We can’t do the same thing repeatedly, and expect a different outcome.

The collapse of Silicon Valley Bank, Credit Suisse, and Signature may be the canaries in the coal mine. Hundreds of other banks are likely insolvent. Our fragile economy is built on financial speculation and the whims of billionaires. It exploits the majority to build wealth for a few.

The only durable solution is to build a strong, productive economy that works for all of us. The wealth of this nation is what we actually produce. The result is a growing standard of living for the entire population and an expanding physical output. It’s how the nation was built. We need to build infrastructure and industry, and invest in people.

Congressional passage of the Bipartisan Infrastructure Law in 2021 was a good first step, but it wasn’t enough. It is a short term, five-year “fix”, but falls short compared to the need. Congress must invest ten times that amount!

There is an immediate remedy at hand. We must establish a National Infrastructure Bank (NIB), as outlined in HR 3339 in the

117th Congress. This law would create a public bank with a dedicated mission to finance the infrastructure needs of the nation. The last such institution, the Reconstruction Finance Corporation, was used by President Franklin Roosevelt to finance massive infrastructure and industrial expansion, off the budget of the Congress. Many New Deal projects in New York and elsewhere were the result of this institution.

Over the next ten years the NIB will invest five trillion dollars for small and large infrastructure projects alike. These will include: roads, bridges, upgraded electrical grids, replacing all lead service lines, affordable housing, high speed and passenger rail, and universal broadband. There’s enough money for Red States and Blue States. A win-win!

A new bill is being readied for introduction into the 118th Congress. The NIB will require no new federal spending or federal taxes! It will be capitalized by existing Treasury debt, in a debt for equity swap. The NIB will finance all needed projects. Economists estimate it will increase GDP by 5% per year, and productivity by over 3% per year. We have not seen this rate of growth for fifty years!

The NIB investment in infrastructure will be coupled with workforce development. Millions of people will build and sustain the projects. The bank will pay prevailing

wages, mandate Buy America purchases for all construction inputs, and ensure substantial minority and disadvantaged business participation. The Buy America provisions will increase manufacturing in the U.S. and New York and stimulate the addition of millions of new additional jobs. The bank will create upwards of 20 million new high-wage jobs including at least 1.6 million new jobs in New York State.

With this type of bold investment, the working middle class will be able to build and invest into their future, into their communities, and new businesses. Ironically, investment into infrastructure and industry is anti-inflationary. It is also the only

program which can reverse the oncoming recession of the Federal Reserve. The Fed wants to lay off millions of Americans; the National Infrastructure Bank will hire tens of millions of people at high wages. We can have an economy that works for all people. We can build a society that serves the needs of the nation, not the wobbly Too-Big-ToFail Banks and their big corporate allies. Please join the campaign.

Forest Hills Stadium Celebrates Its Centennial


When Forest Hills Stadium opened its doors in 1923, Calvin Coolidge was sworn in as president following the death of Warren Harding, Yankee Stadium hosted its first game, London’s original Wembley Stadium opened its doors to the public and Henry Kissinger, Charlton Heston and Bettie Page were among the famous names born that year. And while the first event held at Forest Hills Stadium was the final of the International Lawn Tennis Challenge that found the United States defeating Australia, a few decades later, this 14,000-seat horseshoe-shaped open air amphitheater became a cherished site for live performances. The murderer’s row of storied artists ranged from The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Doors, Frank Sinatra, Barbra Streisand, Simon & Garfunkel, Talking Heads and Joni Mitchell to even seeing Jimi Hendrix open for the Monkees in 1967. This year is also the 10-year anniversary of the stadium’s resurrection after laying fallow since hosting its last show, the K-Rock Dysfunctional Family Picnic in 1997.The man behind it all is music promoter/booking agent Mike Luba, an Albertson native whose parents met on a date going to see a bill of Simon & Garfunkel

and The Doors at Forest Hills Stadium. For Luba, the past decade has found him and his team lovingly restoring the building. With this landmark anniversary landing this year, he’s justifiably proud of how well the venue has held up.

“This year is a biggie,” he said. “There’s not a whole lot, if any, first-generation iconic buildings like this left in New York. Yankee Stadium is Yankee Stadium II. Madison Square Garden is on its fourth version. Citi Field was Shea Stadium. Ebbets Field is gone. The Polo Grounds are gone. The Singer Bowl is gone. We’re older than Radio City Music Hall. I think what’s crazy is that Carnegie Hall might be a couple of years older. We’re right at the beginning of mass gatherings happening on any sort of scale. We’re pretty proud that this spot has managed to make it for a full century. It’s pretty amazing.”

In the 10 years since Luba and his crew have been booking shows, they’ve landed a number of major coups that involved having a number of legacy artists who played the

venue in its earlier incarnation returning to grace the Forest Hills Stadium stage. Among the names are Bob Dylan, Hall & Oates, Paul Simon (minus Art Garfunkle) and The Who with an array of equally impressive acts joining that roll call of names including Willie Nelson, Van Morrison, Bette Midler, Chic, Earth, Wind & Fire, Ed Sheeran, Brandi Carlile, Sheryl Crow and Dolly Parton, Luba also had this Queens institution be a stop on The Replacements reunion tour, be the site of the late Tom Petty’s last-ever New York dates, last year’s Rock the Bells Festival (which served as a homecoming for LL Cool J among other hiphop legends), become the summer home of the New York Pops and in a nod to its sports roots, host the inaugural season of World Team Tennis in 2016.

Given Forest Hills Stadium’s location in a residential neighborhood means Luba and his crew have made a concerted effort to allay any resident concerns. The promoter

is himself a local resident, so ensuring the venue is in compliance with local noise ordinances has been a priority and led to measures that include soundproofing stairwells leading into the main performance space and installing sound-absorbing material along the fence that lines the perimeter of the stadium’s property. It didn’t stop the nonprofit Forest Hills Garden Corporation from suing and threatening to close Burns Street, a public road that is also a local byway that leads to the stadium. The West Side Tennis Club and Luba countersued over the threatened closure of this season’s upcoming slate of shows. And while there was a brief flurry of media coverage regarding the legal battle, it’s since died down as local response has leaned heavily in favor of the stadium.

“This has been the worst kind of ‘I don’t care if I ruin it for everyone just to prove my own point,’” Luba explained. “It’s been great for us because [this dispute] unified the neighborhood and people are protective of the stadium. We spent so much time, effort and energy putting the word out that it’s a welcoming, diverse oasis kind of a spot, which it truly, really is. The support we’ve gotten has been really heartwarming. We’ve worked pretty hard to make it as safe and accommodating a spot as we can in 2023 while being good stewards and letting the building do its own thing.”

Commencement Speech Highlights 2023

Acommencement speech is a traditional address given at a graduation ceremony to inspire, motivate, and offer guidance to the graduating class as they embark on the next chapter of their lives. Typically delivered by a notable speaker, such as a distinguished academic, successful professional, or renowned public figure, the speech aims to reflect on the accomplishments of the graduates, celebrate their achievements, and provide valuable life lessons. Commencement speeches often incorporate personal anecdotes, wisdom, and words of encouragement, encouraging graduates to embrace their potential, pursue their passions, and navigate the challenges that lie ahead with resilience and determination.

Here are some of the most notable commencement speeches delivered to schools and institutions around the nation this year.

Howard University

“The soul of America is what makes us unique among all nations. We’re the only country

founded on an idea — not geography, not religion, not ethnicity, but an idea. The sacred proposition, rooted in Scripture and enshrined in the Declaration of Independence, that we’re all created equal in the image of God and deserve to be treated equally throughout our lives. While we’ve never fully lived up to that promise, we never before fully walked away from it.”

United States Military Academy (West Point)

“You see what can be, unburdened by what has been. And you

have the agility and the ability to bring that potential to life.”

“My parents’ story is proof that change is possible. But that story also attests to the fact that change doesn’t come to those who merely want it. It comes to those who work for it.”

a lot of topics. It’s hard to say, and especially in a society that seems to thrive on sharp opinion and absolutisms and shuns nuance. Nobody wants to be the guy in the back of the room who feels like they are the only one who hasn’t figured out the answer. But guess what? Chances are neither have the guys in the front rows. Until we can acknowledge what we don’t know, we can’t possibly be asking the right questions. You don’t have to be the smartest guy in the room. Your aim should be to be the one asking for more information. The one audacious enough to say: ‘I don’t know.’”

Lester Holt, journalist Tennessee State University

who have to decide to be one of three types of Americans: those who embrace liberty and freedom for all, those who won’t, or those who are indifferent. Only the first do the work of creating a more perfect union. A nation indivisible. The others get in the way.”

Tom Hanks, actor Loyola Marymount University

“Go about the world bringing justice, healing, and mercy.”

Martin Sheen, actor Northern Arizona University

“I realized there is more to life than work. Don’t wait as long as I did to learn this lesson. Take time to nurture your relationships, to celebrate your successes, and to recover from your losses.”


Villanova University

“‘I don’t know.’ It’s a surprisingly difficult thing to say for someone who spends each day providing answers to millions of people on

“There is more than enough wrong to keep you busy trying to make things right for the rest of your natural life.”

Oprah Winfrey, talk show host Harvard University

Molloy College Holds Commencement

Graduates crossed the stage to receive their diplomas at the 2023 Molloy University Commencement Ceremonies held at the Nassau Coliseum in Uniondale, including students from the School of Arts and Sciences, The School of Business, The School of Education and Human Services and the School of Nursing and Health Sciences.

“I’m so excited,” said Sarah Tafur, originally from Colombia and now living in Valley Stream. “It was hard, but we got it done.”

Victoria Franco of Lindenhurst, served as class valedictorian and delivered an address.

The Molloy Class of 2023 is comprised of 940 graduates, including Bachelor’s, Master’s and Doctoral degree recipients, plus Associate’s and Advanced Certificate and other graduates.

940 grads receive diplomas

The Class of 2023 was caught in the midst of the COVID-19 Pandemic and lockdown, attending many of their classes remotely, but that did not dampen the spirits of the graduates.

“It [COVID] hit right at my freshman year, in my second semester,” said Mason Santa Catalina, a theater major from Roseville, CA. “We had to switch modes

“When we were able to go back in person, that really helped,” said Thomas McHugh, who will take a job in a hospital emergency room as one of the graduates of the Barbara J. Hagan School of Nursing. “Getting that contact back with the teachers really helped us learn.”

The commencement address was given by Sister Donna Markham, OP, PhD, president & CEO of Catholic Charities USA (CCUSA) who is the first female

As part of the ceremony Molloy will bestow an honorary Doctor of Humane Letters (LHD) degree upon Sister Donna for her work during her 40-year career.

“We are pleased to welcome Sister Donna to this year’s commencement exercises,” said Dr. James P. Lentini, president of Molloy University. “The CCUSA mission aligns closely with Molloy’s, with an emphasis on respect and dignity for all people, and she will deliver a powerful message that I am sure will resonate with our students.”

Molloy also conveyed an honorary Doctor of Laws (LLD) degree on New York State Regent Roger Tilles, recognizing his contributions to the New York State Education Department, his philanthropy and support of the arts.

“Roger has been a friend of Molloy’s for many years and his support of higher education has benefited Long Island and all of New York State for many years,” said President Lentini. “His dedication to the region is unsurpassed.”

Guiding Young Adults Toward Successful Careers

On the surface, the future looks bright for spring’s college grads, with employers planning to hire nearly 15 percent more candidates from the class of 2023 than in the previous year, according to the National Association of Colleges and Employers. Dig a little deeper, however, and the outlook gets murkier, cautions career coach Beth Hendler-Grunt.

“College graduates struggle to find jobs due to competition, lack of work experience and not understanding employer expectations,” she said. “And their parents are frustrated. They want to help, and they’re not sure how. Many parents haven’t looked for a job in more than 20-plus years, and things have definitely changed in that time.”

How can parents help?

What should grads do?

Hendler-Grunt’s new book, The Next Great Step: The Parents’ Guide to Launching

Your New Grad Into a Career, gives parents a simple, step-by-step plan for successfully guiding their young adults through the transition from college to career.

Filled with tips, job aids and insightful stories, The Next Great Step addresses everything from how parents can help their young adults get “unstuck” and navigate the hiring process, to how students and grads can stand out from the rest of the graduating class. Hendler-Grunt shares the secrets of how to “network” the right way and excel in interviews, and how parents can offer solid career advice to their grad.

The Next Great Step provides insights from three key perspectives: the concerns of the parent, the thought process of the student and the expectations of potential employers.

“Navigating the post-college job world is all about developing and implementing the right strategies,” Hendler-Grunt said. “This book is required reading for families looking to navigate a changing world from college to career. Companies need new grads. It’s just a matter of connecting the dots.”

Hendler-Grunt is the founder and president of Next Great Step (www. She is a dynamic leader, advisor and facilitator who has extensive experience consulting with startups, Fortune 500 firms, universities and individuals. She founded Next Great Step with the sole focus of guiding college students and recent grads to help them land the job they deserve. Hendler-Grunt leverages techniques and insights from hiring managers and CEOs and brings those secrets to students to help them stand out and get the job. She has enabled hundreds of clients to achieve success, with 90 percent of her clients landing the job of their choice. She has been featured in The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, SiriusXM radio, Kiplinger, CNN, Fortune and many other media outlets. She is also the mom of a recent college grad and college she gets it.

Every student had their own personal story of struggle and triumph.

“When I was born, doctors said I wouldn’t be able to walk or talk and now I’m getting my degree,” said Bernice Jean-Baptiste, a psychology graduate from Suffolk County. “It’s surreal to me.”

Carol Sung of New Hyde Park, an interactive design major and recipient of The Ferro Family Endowed Scholarship at FSC, was named class valedictorian and delivered the address.

Zucker School Of Medicine Celebrates Ninth Commencement Ceremony

e Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell celebrated its ninth commencement ceremony on May 8.

e event was held at the David S. Mack Sports and Exhibition Complex at Hofstra University, where 94 graduates from the Class of 2023 took another step closer to realizing their dreams, becoming the nation’s newest doctors and scientists to enter the eld of medicine.

e ceremony was presided by Susan Poser, president of Hofstra University, David Battinelli, MD, dean of the Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell, and Michael Dowling, president and CEO of Northwell Health.

“We are jealous of your opportunity for the journey and the chance to have all of the countless discoveries and advances in medicine that we did not have and couldn’t offer our patients,” said Dr. Battinelli, who also serves as the executive vice president and physician in chief of Northwell Health. “A career in medicine is a lifelong journey—you will have more hard work, but the future of patient care and discovery is in your hands, and the future of your career is bright.”

The commencement keynote was delivered by Kevin Tracey, MD, president and CEO, and the Karches Family Distinguished Chair in Medical Research at the Feinstein Institutes for Medical Research.

A pioneer in the scientific fields of inflammation and bioelectronic medicine, Dr. Tracey’s contributions include discovery and molecular mapping of neural circuits controlling immunity.

As an accomplished inventor on more than 120 United States patents, author of more than 400 scientific publications, and co-founder of several biotechnology companies, Dr. Tracey encouraged the graduates to continue to dream big and learn from their achievements.

Of the 94 Zucker School of Medicine students conferred, there are 86 MDs, one PhD, two MD/PhDs, two MD/ OMSs, and three MD/MPHs.

The school’s newest physicians and scientists are an ambitious and culturally rich group, including 11 first-generation individuals and 17 graduates who are underrepresented in medicine, ready to bring the highest level of health care to a growing and diverse

Commencement day was also a full circle moment for dual degree MD/ MPH graduate Dr. Tanzim Bhuiya, who completed Hofstra University’s 4+4 BS-BA/MD program, an eight-year curriculum that combines undergraduate and medical school education. As a Hofstra undergrad majoring in disability studies, he developed a passion for humanities in medicine. A service trip to Panama also sparked his interest in global health and a desire to pursue a master’s in public health.

Dr. Bhuiya is one of 13 graduates to receive the Graduation with Distinction in Research Award. He follows in his father’s footsteps, Dr. Tawfiqul Bhuiya, a beloved and highly regarded Northwell Health physician who sadly passed in 2020.

“My dad was my introduction into medicine and truly modeled the qualities a physician should have and the person I want to become—he was my role model my entire life.”

Classmate Danielle Anesta Lowe Howell, MD, knows all too well what it’s like to experience the challenges of medical school while suffering a personal loss. She credits her perseverance partly to the school community’s compassion and encouragement.

“The medical school was incredibly supportive as I coped with the loss of my father in the midst of my clinical year,” explained Dr. Howell, who will begin a residency program in psychiatry at Mount Sinai Hospital. “I attribute much of my growth and success as a student to the close-knit community that the Zucker School of Medicine cultivates.”

While in medical school, Dr. Howell completed the Klar Leadership Development and Innovation Management Scholarly Concentration. In 2021, she was honored with the Feinstein Institutes’ Advancing Women in Science and Medicine (AWSM) Barbara Hrbek Zucker Emerging Scientist Award for her research projects looking into the role of social determinants of health in hospital settings. It was the first time in AWSM’s history that a medical student received funding.

With newly conferred degrees in hand, Zucker School of Medicine graduates are ready to embark on the next steps in their life-long journey. This ambitious group of physicians matched to residencies in 23 specialty areas at institutions throughout 14 different states.

New doctors recite the physician’s oath during Zucker School of Medicine’s commencement ceremony.

Know The Telltale Signs Of A Scam

Long Islanders may be enjoying the milder months of spring, but scammers are still on the hunt, impersonating PSEG Long Island and area utilities and demanding immediate payment. PSEG urges customers to understand scammers’ tactics and do the right thing if confronted with a demand for payment and a threat of imminent shutoff.

More than 1,200 scam calls have been reported to PSEG so far in 2023. Many of these scammers are demanding immediate payment via web-based electronic payment services. PSEG does not accept external, web-based electronic payment services (outside of payments through MyAccount) as a method of payment.

About payment scams

• Scammers impersonating PSEG most frequently threaten to shut off power immediately unless payment is made.

• Many scammers use phone “spoofing” technology to make their number display on your phone as “PSEG Long Island.”

• PSEG will never request that customers use one specific method of payment.

over the phone.

• PSEG does not accept webbased electronic payment services, prepaid debit cards or Bitcoin as payment.

• Sometimes phone scammers will demand a deposit for a priority meter installation. PSEG does not require a deposit for meter installations.

• If a customer has doubts about the legitimacy of a call or an email—especially one in which payment is requested—they should call the company directly.

In-person visits

Scammers may go doorto-door impersonating PSEG employees, flashing a fake ID and/or claiming to be a utility collection representative. The impostors may wear “uniforms” or affix false company signs to their vehicles. The scammers generally ask for personal information, which real utility representatives do not do, or offer bogus discounts. Call PSEG directly to verify.

Situated on a sought-after, quaint, country street at 11 Coot Rd. in Locust Valley is this charming Cape, which sold on May 5 for $1,300,000. Boasting four bedrooms and two bathrooms, the floor plan showcases true luxurious living. This home is perfect for entertaining, with its open-concept floor plan, a living room with a fireplace, a dining room and a beatiful kitchen to enjoy for decades. This home also includes a home office, exercise room, a first floor primary bedroom, and a partially finished basement. The backyard is private and fenced. It is near to shopping, restaurants, the train station, beaches and more.

• Scammers typically want their victims to transfer money via a web-based electronic payment service, a prepaid debit card, or even Bitcoin, sometimes asking people to buy a prepaid card at the nearest convenience store and then to read them the PIN

PSEG employees must carry a company ID and present it when requested. If customers have doubts, do not let the person into the house and call 1-800-4900025 to have a customer service representative verify that an employee has been dispatched to the location. An actual PSEG employee will respect the customer’s decision and remain outside. If the person escalates their efforts to enter the home, customers should consider calling 911.

Manhattan restaurateur Tal Sheinman has opened the fourth franchise location of the already popular Brooklyn Dumpling Shop. This new location opened on April 24, in founder and creator, Stratis Morfogen’s hometown of Garden City at 684 Stewart Ave. (previously Mac & Melts).

Sheinman, a New York native, has a long-standing history in the restaurant industry, operating multiple restaurants frequented by celebrities as well as a long standing café in Manhattan’s Upper East Side. Now Sheinman is tapping back into his years of experience in the restaurant world, with the launch of Brooklyn Dumpling Shop in Garden City.

“I am excited to bring Brooklyn Dumpling Shop to Garden City,” Sheinman said. When I first heard about Brooklyn Dumpling Shop I knew that this was a concept I had to be involved with.”

This new franchise follows the success of Brooklyn Dumpling Shop’s franchise locations in Staten Island, Hoboken and Queens that that have seen lines out the

Brooklyn Dumpling Shop’s New

door since opening.

“Since many of my family members live on Long Island, it felt that the perfect place to bring this new franchise,” Sheinman said. “I hope that Brooklyn Dumpling Shop can become a staple in this community just as it has in other locations, becoming the go-to  for one of kind fast-casual dining.”

The franchise locations follow in the success that Morfogen has set in place with his flagship location on St. Marks Place in New York City. Brooklyn Dumpling Shop is a unique franchise focused around contactless Automat machines that serves one of a kind dumplings like PB&J, Pastrami and the newly launched Cro’Sumplings ™ (Breakfast Dumplings).

Brooklyn Dumpling Shop is the fastest growing franchise in fast casual food, selling more than 50 franchises before opening their flagship location in New York City and today have sold more than 200 franchises.

Brooklyn Dumpling Shop, brings new flavors to the masses with a twist on the traditional dumpling. Recently he launched a new entrée option with the Brooklyn Chop Chop Bowls. These new bowls are fully customizable allowing guests to choose a base of either Rice or Noodles, then select their protein from

options like, Grilled or Crispy Chicken, Shrimp, or Plant Based Chicken. Guests can then finish off their bowls with a choice of sauces ranging from Kung Pao, Beijing, Sweet & Sour, Buffalo Ranch or Brooklyn Chop House’s world famous Peanut Sauce.

Outside of its one of a kind dumpling’s, Brooklyn Dumpling Shop, has seen a great response from their Automat contactless ordering system, a point of interest for a post-pandemic friendly world. Morfogen has brought the Automat of yesteryear into

Guests can place an order on their phone or via one of the restaurant’s Touchless POS kiosks. When a guest’s order is ready, the customer will receive a text notification to get their special delivery from a marked, temperature-controlled locker; it will open automatically once the customer scans their barcode. Lockers storing hot food will be red-lit, indicating it is 145 degrees; chilled lockers will be blue-lit and 38 degrees. Auburn-lit lockers will disclose one’s at room temperature. This provides a ZHI experience from start to finish.

Brooklyn Dumpling Shop also offers a line of mail-order products to customers across the United States and will have their dumplings in Walmart nationwide in 2023.

Brooklyn Dumpling Shop is located at 684 Stewart Ave., one block south from Roosevelt Field Mall (previously Mac & Melts) in Garden City.

provide guests with an easy, safe option to pick up orders from temperature-controlled lockers at peak freshness.

“The Automat was single-handedly the greatest fast food distribution equipment ever designed. The technology we’ve brought to Brooklyn Dumpling Shop is

unlike anything that has been seen before. It has allowed us to create an Autoflow from a customers’ cell phone to our touchless ordering kiosks, right to our lockers to bring quick-serve restaurants into the 21st century,” said Morfogen. “The pandemic delayed Brooklyn Dumpling  Shop’s

HOROSCOPES By Holiday Mathis

This is a theme puzzle with the subject stated below. Find the listed words in the grid. (They may run in any direction always in a straight line. Some letters are used more than once.) Ring each word as you find it and when you have pleted the puzzle, there will be 18 letters left over. They spell out the alternative theme of the puzzle.



ARIES (March 21-April 19). You show up and o er what you have to the world, fully expecting that some will get it and others won’t. Finding your people is always worth the awkwardness of weeding out the ones who aren’t a match. You’ll rst serve a small group very well, then learn and grow from there.

TAURUS (April 20-May 20). People who aren’t sure which direction to take will follow the con dent walkers. Your passion and energy can inspire others to follow you even when you don’t want them to. Consider exploring and experimenting solo to avoid the pressures of leadership before you want it. Give yourself a chance to y and have fun on your own rst.

GEMINI (May 21-June 21). If what you really want seems expensive, consider that t is much more important than luxury. An a ordable suit with perfect tailoring cuts a sharper silhouette than an ill- tting, expensive get-up. It’s true for more than the wardrobe this week. In all things, seek an exceptional t.

CANCER (June 22-July 22). You’ve worked a certain angle or project for so long now, part of you has checked out of the process. You just want it to be done. Since you’ve made it this far, be sure to nish strong. Take a beat to catch your breath and get perspective. Do what it takes to bring this home in a way you’ll be proud of.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Schooling isn’t learning. e two may overlap this week but often will not. What you live will quickly become a part of you, and your experience will be a better predictor of success than any kind of formal education. Also note: You will not be satis ed with knowing what steps to take unless you also understand why.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). e beautiful, winding complexity of your life has led you to accept that others do not think, feel or believe as you do. Your work will be impactful for its sophistication. Whatever your task, you’ll ask very early in the process, “Who’s it for?” at is the magic question that will make all the di erence.

LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). ough it’s wise to repeat successful actions, repetition can also lead to stagnation. is is why breaks are important. Take plenty today and get the perspective you need. Other ways to keep it fresh: Unpredictable rewards and new ways to frame the game. Keep changing it up!

SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). If you don’t technically have a few hours of unstructured time to yourself, there will be a part of you that takes over and gives it to you anyway in the form of procrastination or indulgence in distraction. So, it’s better to give yourself leisure and enjoy it than have to steal it from yourself and feel guilty about it.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Don’t worry too much about how people use what you give. Just give from the heart what you believe to be useful. Sometimes, one size really does t all, but it won’t t all in the same way. It’s tight for some, loose for others. For some it’s a hat, and others it’s an anklet.

CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Don’t fret about change, which has many stages, none of which are better than any other. Before you can move forward with the building process, some degree of destruction needs to take place. You’ll be clearing a space this week, which will allow you to begin your new construction.

AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’re in a more powerful position than you think. Life may not re ect this right now, but give it a little more time. Don’t underestimate the power of your ambition and imagination. You’ll paint vividly in your mind rst, and eventually, real life will catch up to re ect your artistry.

PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). ere’s no need to go at things full force this week. It takes careful conservation of personal energy to run a long race. e rst step in your success is realizing that this is a marathon, not a sprint. So, beyond the pride of personal accomplishment, there won’t be a prize for miles and miles, but you can bet it’s there in the end.

THIS WEEK’S BIRTHDAYS is year, you’ll reap the bene ts of the stellar attitude you cultivate, and you’ll re ne your overall purpose and direction. You’ll focus on big things and the tiniest details will elegantly, magically knit together. You’ll win many games as you live by your secret: to play a game well and be aware of what all players have to gain or lose. More highlights: You’ll have a dream team of supporters. Spiritual and creative pursuits will open your heart. You’ll have the means to generously invest in others, and the rewards pay you even as they ripple out to the world.

The saga of Endplay Charlie

ranked among the best players in the world.

Here is an example of Charlie strutting his stuff. Perhaps West shouldn’t have doubled six spades — particularly with Endplay Charlie at the helm — but West felt sure he had two trump tricks, so he did. Charlie thereupon proceeded to wrap the contract around West’s neck. Warned by the double that West had all the missing trumps, Charlie found the way to hold him to one trump trick.

He started by discarding a heart on the king of clubs and then ruffed a club. After cashing the A-K of diamonds and ruffing a diamond, he trumped another club. Next, he played the A-K of hearts and ruffed a heart, producing this position:


Opening lead — queen of clubs.

Nobody ever contended that Endplay Charlie was a great player. His bidding was bad, his defense mediocre, and his declarer play — in general — left much to be desired.

But when it came to endplays, nobody could surpass Charlie. He could smell an endplay a mile away, and he was never happier than when he was executing one. His talent was really exceptional, and if the rest of his game had only been on a par with it, he would have



♠ J 6 5 ♣ A

West East

♠ K Q 10 Immaterial ♣ J


A 9 8 ♦


Charlie now led the ace of clubs, ruffed it with the eight, and then played the jack of diamonds. It did not matter which card West ruffed with — all he could get was one trump trick!

Roslyn High School hosted their second annual Reconnect Day on May 18. The program was inspired in 2021, following a school-wide project on Cohen’s Strong Bully Prevention program, and created to raise awareness about being an upstander— someone who intervenes on behalf of a person being attacked or bullied.

This year, the Students United For Safer Schools (SUSS) Club invited other clubs to participate in their efforts, including, The Diversity Club, The Muslim Discussion Group, The Art Club, and the Mental Health and Awareness Club. Beginning in late January, each club met monthly in the high school library to share ideas and create presentations with activities that connected to specific themes.

Reconnect Day began with a light breakfast reception, followed by several guest speakers. Donna Rosenblum (Glen Cove Holocaust & Tolerance Center) shared a testimonial from a Holocaust Survivor in a presentation called “Irving’s Story.” A panel from Alexander’s Angels (an organization that promotes awareness about Down syndrome) shared their personal stories of empowerment, success, and love. The


rest of the program, focused on self-care and wellness, included a presentation about self-care and coping with adversity from Courtney Katon-Donegal of the Long Island Crisis Center. She was followed by Dr. Fauer from Northwell Health, who led a discussion about social media.

The Art Club did a presentation on


The students, faculty, and staff at East Hills Elementary School raised a whopping $12,411.60 for this year’s Red Nose Day— held Thursday, May 25. This is the largest amount they’ve raised to date. Red Nose Day is a nationwide annual fundraising campaign to help end the cycle of child poverty and ensure a healthy future for all children. It was created by the nonprofit, Comic Relief.

Various fundraising efforts were held throughout the month of May at East Hills, most notably, Stuck for Buck —where

Principal Sherry Ma was taped to the wall for dollar donations. The school also hosted a pretzel sale and a paint night. Many children fundraised on their own—selling bracelets, hosting bake sales, and setting up snack stands.

Teacher Jodi Zambell started Red Nose Day at East Hills because she believed in the core message, which is about being happy and showing compassion for others. Each May, she turns her classroom into Red Nose Day headquarters. On Thursday, many wore red clothing and crazy hair. Each grade took turns on the field, posing for pictures with red noses, dancing to

music, and having a really fun time.

East Hills has been fundraising for Red Nose day since it started in the United States in 2015. In 2021, Comic Relief recognized the schools’ extraordinary fundraising by donating a Red Nose Day bench in front of the school building.

Neurographic Art therapy and provided students with amazing coloring packets. The Mental Health Awareness Club gave a presentation about mental wellness and hosted a bingo activity. The Diversity Club and Muslim Discussion group gave presentations on Cultural Competence, and the SUSS Team wrapped up the program by

presenting on school safety.

“Reconnect Day was a great success this year, well attended by the students and faculty of Roslyn High School,” said Club Advisor Kinshasa Allen. “It truly encouraged all participants to respect others and embrace diversity.”

The Wheatley School in East Williston recently held a ceremony recognizing students for their achievements in world languages and inducted students into the world language honor societies.

This year, 47 seniors earned the New York State Seal of Biliteracy, certifying that each attained a high level of proficiency in the three modes of communication (interpretive, interpersonal and presentational) in English and one or more world languages. In all, 14 languages were represented. Six juniors completed the world language requirements with plans for earning the seal next year.

During the ceremony, 42 juniors were inducted into the World Language Honor Society. In addition, French and Italian honor societies inducted seven students each, while Spanish inducted 28 students.

Attendees were treated to poetry readings

by students Vansantha Eswar, Kayla Rogan and Raisa Hasan, who shared verses in French, Italian and Spanish, respectively.

Student Lana Cale gave a heartfelt speech about earning the Seal of Biliteracy in her home language of Croatian. “It is a great honor for me to be able to be speaking up here today talking about my passion for language and my Croatian heritage,” Cale said. Her grandfather, who was in attendance, expressed his immense gratitude to the East Williston School District for providing his granddaughter with the opportunity.

Jasmine Singh, a graduate of the Wheatley Class of 2021, was the keynote speaker. She shared how studying French and Spanish during her time at Wheatley shaped her passion for pursuing language in college. She will be participating in a nursing internship in Spain this summer.

Northwell Commits $1M To Fund Employee Ideas For Healthcare Innovation

The 2023 Innovation Challenge showcased ideas to tackle cancer care and bioelectronic medicine treatment for stroke

Northwell Health has awarded $1 million toward the research and development of two employee-driven projects that drive the goal of transforming the future of health care with new ideas during the health system’s 2023 Innovation Challenge. Winners of the competition included team leads hailing from the Feinstein Institutes for Medical Research, the home of research at Northwell Health. Each project will receive up to $500,000 in funding to advance their innovations in care delivery and science.

Lead investigators of the two winning projects included Daniel King, MD, PhD, assistant professor at the Institute of Cancer Research at the Feinstein Institutes, and Sandeep Nadella, MD, gastroenterologist at North Shore University Hospital in Manhasset, for their work on iNav: AI-Driven Identification and Navigation for Cancer Patients; and Chunyan Li, PhD, associate professor at the Institute of Bioelectronic Medicine at the Feinstein Institutes, and Timothy G. White, MD, chief resident at the Department of Neurosurgery at North Shore University Hospital, for StrokeFighter: Novel Bioelectronic Therapy for Acute Ischemic Stroke. The announcement was made during the health system’s “Made for Big Ideas” Showcase.

“Innovation and creativity are the essence of good organizations, and at Northwell we take pride in fostering a culture that promotes our team members who strive to advance science and the delivery of care,” said Michael Dowling, Northwell Health president and CEO. “All of these submissions represent the very best ideas and novel approaches Northwell, and its talent, are pursuing to tackle some of health care’s biggest issues.”

Since officially launching six years ago, hundreds of Northwell employees have submitted ideas to the competition. To date, Northwell has awarded funding for 13 projects to advance their progress and develop their innovative ideas.

“Innovation is a team sport at Northwell. Our core strength comes from the curiosity and ingenuity of our 83,000 team members,” said Jason Naidich, MD, senior vice president and chief innovation officer at Northwell Health. “The finalists showcased here today exemplify the way in which interdisciplinary teams are especially capable of developing novel approaches and transformative solutions that will improve patient care.”

Navigating cancer care through AI

Drs. King and Nadella, along with Tiffany Zavadsky, CRNP, created an AI-enabled solution to identify and navigate both pre-diagnosed and newly diagnosed cancer patients to cancer care, including access to novel clinical trials.

“This feels like a new beginning,” said Dr. King. “We recognized that one of the key problems in oncology is that we’re not able to navigate patients to care properly and quickly. What we can do with iNav is use technology to identify patients much earlier than we did before and promptly send them to get the correct care they need.”

Treating stroke through bioelectronic medicine

Presented by Drs. Li and White, StrokeFighter is a cutting-edge bioelectronic medicine therapy designed to alleviate the negative effects of acute ischemic stroke (lack of blood flow to the brain), while also preventing and treating stroke-induced vascular cognitive impairments through targeted electrical stimulation of the trigeminal nerve. The project team has dedicated the last five years to optimizing trigeminal nerve stimulation parameters by using a unique wrap-around technique that could assist in early stroke treatment.

“This work comes from a very small lab, and I really appreciate this opportunity,” said Dr. Li. “Some people may not know about our work or what bioelectronic medicine is, but our research may one day help a lot of patients.”

Other members of the StrokeFighter team include Yousef Al-Abed, PhD, co-director of the Institute for Bioelectronic Medicine at the Feinstein Institutes; Daniel Sciubba, MD, MBA, Lucille and Milton Cohn professor and chair of neurosurgery at Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell, senior vice president of neurosurgery at Northwell Health, and co-director of the Institute for Neurology and Neurosurgery at Northwell Health; Stavros Zanos, MD, PhD, associate professor at the Institute of Bioelectronic Medicine at the Feinstein Institutes; Kevin Shah, MD, chief resident of the department of neurosurgery at North Shore University Hospital; and Henry Woo, MD, vice chairman and director of cerebrovascular neurosurgery at North Shore University Hospital and professor of neurosurgery at Donald and Barbara Zucker School of Medicine at Hofstra/Northwell.

The last Innovation Challenge, held in 2021, awarded two transformative

projects: a 3D imaging device to identify tissue pressure injuries early and a non-invasive bioelectronic medicine spleen stimulator to treat excessive bleeding. Past projects funded have included research into the first non-invasive diagnostic test for endometriosis, a therapeutic drug

candidate as a potential treatment for HPV infection, real-time actionable data related to ED utilization, and the allocation of clinical resources and infrared thermography for early detection of tissue pressure injury.
