One supplier told The Real Deal that it hasn’t been paid for months.A spokesperson for Dylan’s did not address the closure of its Third Avenue store, but said, “We have not missed any agreed upon payments with suppliers and continue to show leadership and loyalty to our suppliers, many of whom we have worked with and supported for nearly two decades.”Read moreDylan’s Candy Bar sued over unpaid rentLandlords increasingly turn to lawsuits against nonpaying retailersGap settles Midtown rent dispute with Axel Stawski Full Name* Message* Share via Shortlink Share on FacebookShare on TwitterShare on LinkedinShare via Email Share via Shortlink Tags Email Address* The company is also being sued by Olmstead Properties for $200,000 in unpaid rent at its corporate office at 315 East 62nd Street.Dylan’s initially signed a seven-year lease with the office landlord in 2002, and extended it three times between then and 2017.

Temperature and embryonic development in polar marine invertebrates

first_imgReferences CitationsMetrics Reprints & PermissionsGet access Abstract The life-history tactics of many Antarctic marine invertebrates suggest that the commonly observed slow rates of growth are adaptations to the pattern of food availability, and not due to low temperature per se. This implies that marine invertebrates have been able, over the course of evolutionary time, to compensate their rates of embryonic development for the effect of temperature. Data from north Atlantic copepods indicate that this is so. It is therefore suggested that the slow rates of embryonic development in many Antarctic marine invertebrates are the result of large egg size, and not the low temperature. Large, slowly developing eggs are part of a suite of tactics, often called K-strategies, which characterise many marine invertebrates in Antarctica.last_img read more

Serena Williams wins first match at Wimbledon since giving birth

first_img Written by Beau Lund July 2, 2018 /Sports News – National Serena Williams wins first match at Wimbledon since giving birthcenter_img FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailScott Clarke / ESPN Images(LONDON) — Serena Williams battled wind, the heat and, most of all, her critics to win her first match at Wimbledon since giving birth.The seven-time Wimbledon champion, who was seeded 25th, beat Arantxa Rus in two-straight sets in the first round of competition on Monday.But there seemed to be just as much commentary about what Williams was wearing as her killer serves.For her return to the British Grand Slam tournament, the 36-year-old arrived in an all-white suit for her warmup.She then removed the jacket and long pants to reveal a long-sleeved white tennis dress with white shorts underneath.But it was her legwear that drew the most attention. Williams appeared to be wearing skin-colored footless leggings or tights.Although Williams did not comment on her legwear, it could very well have served a purpose.When she appeared at the French Open last month in an all-black skin-tight catsuit, her outfit, once again, made a huge impression.Williams said it was meant to inspire other women coming back after giving birth.“For all the moms out there who had a tough recovery from pregnancy — here you go,” she wrote on Instagram. “If I can do it, so can you. Love you, all!!”After the match, Williams told reporters the suit was also designed to help with blood clots, something the tennis pro has battled, including after giving birth to her daughter when she says she “almost died.”“It is definitely a little functionality to it,” Williams told reporters about the catsuit. “I had a lot of problems with my blood clots, and, God, I don’t know how many I have had in the past 12 months.”In light of her previous explanation, the legwear seemed to make more sense.Williams, the most successful tennis player in history, was ranked No. 1 when she took her maternity leave. When she returned to the tour in March, her ranking was 183rd. But the All England Club, which organizes Wimbledon, decided to amend the rules and seed her 25th, taking into account her break for maternity leave.Following Monday’s match, Williams told the BBC she was “more relieved” to have won, admitting that Rus, her opponent, had put up a good fight.“I’m happy to get through that,” she said, adding that she was “just taking one match at a time.”But she was most looking forward to getting back to her 9-month-old daughter, Alexis Olympia Ohanian Jr., with husband Alexis Ohanian.“I’m going to try to make it home before she gets to bed,” she said.Copyright © 2018, ABC Radio.

Oxford student invents secret messaging Facebook app

first_imgThe extension, developed by Owen Campbell-Moore of Keble College, allows users to encode secret messages on pictures uploaded to Facebook. ‘Secretbook’ then dechipers the hidden text for those with the correct password Campbell-Moore told Cherwell, “About a year ago I discovered a really creepy US Air Force grant (af121-050) which was looking for a system to collect and extract meaning from conversations extracted from social media. The thought stuck with me that it is unclear precisely how much access the US government has to private data on social networks and hence better tools really need to exist to facilitate private communication online.” The extension, available from Campbell-Moore’s personal blog, has already been downloaded 7,000 times. A Mashable article covering the story has been tweeted almost 1,500 times.In order to work, both the sender and the recipient must download the extension. Once downloaded any user who has the correct password can access the secret message on the image by pressing ctl+alt+a whilst viewing the correct photo.Campbell-Moore developed the extension last year, in a project supervised by Professor Andrew Ker. Ker told Cherwell, “The app works by modifying a photo, invisibly, to hide a small amount of text (about one tweet), which only a person with the right password can decode. The main challenge in the project was to make sure that the message survives the process of being uploaded, when it is recompressed by Facebook.” In a blog post, Campbell-Moore explained, “The extension utilises a technique known as JPEG Steganography to hide secret messages in photos by making many visually imperceptible changes to encode the secret data.” The post continued, “Steganography tools have traditionally been complicated (and often command line based) so a core goal to this project was to make Steganography easy and accessible so more people can take advantage of the privacy it provides.”The Daily Mail reported that the technology could be used by terrorists. However, Campbell-Moore’s blog stated, “This application is only suitable for casual users and is totally useless for serious applications such as terrorism since detection would not be difficult for organisations such as the NSA.” Facebook were unavailable for comment.last_img read more


first_img IBLC OUTLINES AGGRESSIVE 2017 AGENDA FOCUSING ON BIAS CRIMES, COURTS, PRECINCT CONSOLIDATION, BUDGETINDIANAPOLIS – Leaders of the Indiana Black Legislative Caucus (IBLC) today outlined an aggressive agenda for the 2017 session of the Indiana General Assembly that will focus on bias crimes, Marion County courts, Lake County precinct consolidation, and passage of a biennial state budget that addresses concerns about education, criminal justice reform, and health issues.“As this session begins to pick up steam, the IBLC wants to make sure that our priorities are addressed in a timely fashion to reflect the concerns that have been expressed to our members by minority communities across this state,” said IBLC Chair, State Rep. Cherrish Pryor (D-Indianapolis), who noted that the caucus conducted town halls across Indiana last year that gave residents a chance to provide feedback on issues of interest to them. “We believe these goals are easily achievable before we finish our work by the end of April.”IBLC members have filed three bills (House Bill 1066 and Senate Bills 333 and 336) that seek to place a bias crime law in state statutes, and enhance penalties against those who commit such crimes.“There is ample evidence to indicate that bias motivated crimes do take place with greater frequency in Indiana, and there is a specific need to demonstrate that these actions will be met with harsh penalties,” Pryor said. “The legislation filed by IBLC members offers the opportunity to pursue criminal and civil penalties against offenders, encourage greater collection and study of bias crimes, and seek to give law enforcement officers the training necessary to be better able to respond to these offenses.”Pryor said the IBLC will work against a series of proposals (House Bill 1036 and Senate Bills 79 and 568) that seek to radically change the methods of selection of Superior Court judges in Marion County.“In the wake of a recent federal court ruling, we now are facing measures – offered under the guise of ‘reform’ – that could effectively prevent minorities from being selected to serve in the Marion County judiciary,” Pryor said. “Past experience has dictated that it is wise to cast a wary eye upon such proposals that disenfranchise voters. Rest assured that the IBLC will vigorously oppose these bills throughout the session, and continue to educate the general public about the injustices that are being attempted here. I have yet to hear a good reason why Marion County should not directly elect their judges. Only Allen, Lake, St. Joseph, Vandenberg and Marion County are denied a direct path to elect their judges. These counties not only have a large number of minorities, they also have a large number of Democrats living in them.”Similar concerns about disenfranchisement were expressed about House Bill 1147, which State Rep. Charlie Brown (D-Gary) said attempts to drastically revise voting precincts in Lake County.“Here we have yet another effort at ‘reform’ which is not so thinly veiled in its effort to deny and repress minority voting in Lake County,” Brown said. “There is no need to do something that will make it more difficult for people to cast a ballot, particularly at a time when Indiana has one of the worst voter participation percentages in the country. We need to be finding ways to encourage people to get out and vote, not deny them that right.”Pryor also outlined a series of priorities for the biennial state budget that must be passed this session. Those include expansion of pre-K, proper funding for K-12 (particularly in urban public schools), and increased funding for remediation, bilingual education, minority health programs, and initiatives that encourage more minorities to get into teaching as a career.“We are disturbed that recent budgets seem to place a higher priority on experimentation like vouchers and charter schools, rather than working to support our public schools, which do not have the ability to pick and choose who they get to educate, but find themselves having to perform so many difficult tasks with less support,” said. “They need a voice in the Statehouse and we will provide it for them.”FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

Watch On-The-Lot Coverage From Phish’s Cancelled Curveball Festival On “Show Of Life” [Video]

first_imgWhen Phish made the announcement that they were forced to cancel their Curveball festival on Thursday, August 16th, tens of thousands of people had already set up camp for the weekend at Watkins Glen International. The powers that be gave fans permission to remain on the grounds until noon the following day, allowing for a somber yet defiantly optimistic party to take place in the Watkins campgrounds that night.

Dunne Hall community reflects on brotherhood, signature events

first_imgObserver File Photo Founded in 2016, Dunne Hall is one of the newest dorms on campus. Known for its signature events such as the Dunne Funne Runne and the DunneDance film festival, Dunne won Men’s Hall of the Year in 2018.Former hall president junior Manuel DeBrito said Dunne gives students freedom to be themselves and develop strong friendships.“A lot of dorms have a very specific culture set already. … But at least in Dunne, I felt as though I didn’t have to conform to a certain kind of a college student,” DeBrito said. “We were all from so many different backgrounds and from so many different cultures that it’s kind of just a mesh of all those different things and people. Because of that, people feel comfortable to be themselves and to find friends that have personalities similar to theirs or different from theirs without being judged by anyone else.”Spring vice president and sophomore Carson Richter said though its history is still developing, Dunne has a strong community.“I’d definitely say it’s a pretty tight-knit community,” Richter said. “As far as traditions and culture, it’s still developing, but there’s some pretty good guys there now and everyone gets along pretty well.”Dunne’s pioneer-like mentality, coupled with its drive to make a name for itself has created a community of motivated men, Kuczora said.“They’re generous when pitching in to put on an event and genuinely look out for one another,” he said. “They’re willing to put in the hard work to create something unique that will last for generations and they’re very creative.”The annual Dunne Funne Runne demonstrates the creative spirit and energy of the Sentinels, DeBrito said. The event, a 3k and three-person relay race held on East Quad, benefits Education Bridge, a school in South Sudan founded by a Dunne alumnus, Kuczora said.“Basically, you run around with three guys. It’s a relay and everyone is cheering you on in various stages, so everyone can see the other costumes,” DeBrito said. “ … We’ve had it twice now, and both years it’s been super successful. People just enjoy going out and having a good time on Saturday without necessarily having to demonstrate athletic ability — we’re just there for some laughs and that’s Dunne Funne Runne.”Hall president sophomore George Lyman said the run has potential to be the dorm’s signature event.“I think it’s something that could grow into something really big on campus, but I think there’s still room for it to grow,” he said.The DunneDance Film Festival — a student run film festival which takes place in April — demonstrates the creativity of student filmmakers from Dunne and across campus, DeBrito said.“We do like an Oscars kind-of award ceremony where we rank best actor, best supporting actor and best movie,” Brito said. “We also do best foreign films where other dorms can submit their movies to us and then we’ll watch them. It’s a great laugh.”This growth and interest in the event this past year is promising for the event, 2019 fall vice president Nicholas Spitzer said.“We also had a lot more foreign film submissions from other dorms, so that’s showing how it’s growing,” Spritzer said. “It’s a lot of fun to watch all these people with all these creative ideas get thrown together and watch them all be presented.”In a short time, Dunne has proved itself a rival to the more-established dorms, Spitzer said.“Dunne’s really shown to have a group of outgoing people who are really passionate. … I really enjoy being in it because there’s so many different directions it could go.” Spitzer said.Lyman said he appreciates the chance to build a community from the ground up in Dunne.“I love being in Dunne — you can ask anyone in Dunne, I’ll tell them that,” Lyman said. “I think it’s really interesting to be in a place where traditions are still forming and you get to really make your mark on a community. … I wouldn’t give up the chance to establish our own traditions for anything. I think that’s really awesome.”Tags: dorm features, Dunne Funne Runne, dunne hall, Dunnedance film festival, East Quad One of Notre Dame’s newest dorms, Dunne Hall has stood on East Quad since 2016.Named after donors Jimmy and Susan Dunne, rector Fr. Matthew Kuczora said some may be tempted to think Dunne lacks the tradition of older dorms. However, Dunne’s newness provides an opportunity to explore new ways of developing and fostering individual and community growth, he said.“Being a relatively new residence hall community, there is a warmth and openness here that is very strong,” Kuczora said in an email. “Because residents initially came from every men’s hall on campus, we’ve been able to create our own traditions and culture as the years have progressed. I think this allows everyone to feel a sense of belonging, since we’re not simply upholding traditions created by others in the past.”last_img read more
