BLACK – 20532

TO BEDESTROYED 02/28/18 A volunteer writes: I have volunteered at the BACC for a long time, and I can confidently say that this guy is one of the calmest, most chill dogs I’ve ever met. I prefer to call him Mr. Black, since he is such a gentleman! He walks like an angel on the leash; waits until we’re outside to do his business; and his general cool, calm, collectedness is admired by everyone as he walks by. I get the sense that Mr. Black is wise beyond his years- on our walks together, he often stops to look behind him and stare off into the distance, seeming to contemplate our existence (or maybe he’s looking for his forever family?). Although he never pulls on the leash, Mr. Black loves to stop and explore everything we pass, and he especially loves looking into cars to lock eyes with their drivers.

BLACK – 20532

New York City’s five boroughs first became Jeff Chen-Hsing Liao’s subjects when he moved to the U.S. from Taiwan in 1999 at the age of 22.

It was the city’s ever-changing landscape that fascinated the young photographer. “Every other week, you go to the same spot and something’s different,” Liao tells Newsweek. “New York is one of the most diverse cities—there are so many different cultures that blend into New York.”

To capture that culture, he photographed the same spot over the course of a day and combined the images.

NPR On The Road: Meet Bob Antonacci and his mascot

nprontheroad:

Meet Bob Antonacci and his mascot (he wears a name tag just in case you don’t see the resemblance). Antonacci is the Republican candidate for comptroller in New York. He and his mascot visited 11 minor league ballparks this summer. Kids run up to the mascot to get their pictures taken and Antonacci slips their parents a campaign brochure. It’s a novel approach to campaigning, certainly a conversation starter. I ran into the pair at the Saratoga County Republican Party Rally at the county fairgrounds.
