Hagazussa

In a remote Alpine village in the 15th century, the orphan Albrun grows up to become a marked woman. The plague she conjures makes human cruelty look pathetic and small by comparison.

Bliss

Brilliant, up-and-coming painter, Dezzy,  facing the worst creative block of her life—and on deadline for a new gallery show—turns to anything she can, including hot new designer drug Bliss, to complete her masterpiece. While Bliss seems to smash through Dezzy’s artistic wall, it also comes with some pretty serious side effects that send her spiraling into a hallucinatory hellscape of drugs, sex, and murder in the sleazy underbelly of Los Angeles.

Black Christmas

45th Anniversary Screening! When sorority sisters find themselves under attack from a vicious killer fond of making obscene phone calls, it’s up to police chef John Saxon to even the odds.

One Cut Of The Dead

A Report from the Westchester County School Safety Commission https://news.hamlethub.com/rye/publicsafety/4993-a-report-from-the-westchester-county-school-safety-commission4993-a-report-from-the-westchester-county-school-safety-commission https://news.hamlethub.com/rye/publicsafety/4993-a-report-from-the-westchester-county-school-safety-commission4993-a-report-from-the-westchester-county-school-safety-commission

The Westchester County School Safety Commission released its recommendations to create safer schools in the County, schools of all levels, by following a core set of data-driven best practices and blue prints for success. The report called: “Creating Safer Schools: Recommendations to Strengthen and Enhance Prevention, Planning and Response to School Violence,” is a foundational document. It combines best practices being used at the state level and across the country to create a proactive climate to prevent school violence of any kind and to plan for action and response if a threat or incident takes place in one of the 400-plus school facilities here in Westchester.

The full report with important recommendations was released today at a news conference led off by Westchester County District Attorney Anthony A. Scarpino, Jr. and Westchester County Executive George Latimer.

The Commission was launch in August 2018, with a first meeting held just as the 2018-2019 school year got underway. Over the course of the year, the committees focused on distinct issues. On Feb. 27, 2019, the two committees met jointly to share their preliminary findings with the full Commission.

Today Committee recommendations were delivered by Michael Orth, Commissioner, Westchester County Dept. of Community Mental Health, serving as co-chair of the Threat Assessment Committee, and Chris T. McNerney, Chief Criminal Investigator, Westchester County District Attorney’s Office, speaking as the new chair of the Crisis Management/Law Enforcement Committee (as of September, 2019).

Key recommendations include:

  1. Outline a comprehensive school violence prevention, planning and response for each school based on NYS Emergency Response Plans guidelines
  2. Create circles of communication among stakeholders, including school building administration, school districts, mental health professionals, law enforcement and other first responders, parents, students and community members–including systems for anonymous tips, alerts, contacts for all emergency teams, teacher and staff training, and community meetingsAdopt a schoolwide systems approach to threat prevention in all schools
  3. Follow models for building Threat Assessment Teams and Emergency Response Teams
  4. Enhance relationships between local police and schools; and set guidelines for law enforcement to follow concerning commitment, planning and response
  5. Utilize specialized training for law enforcement involved in school safety
  6. Mandate regularly scheduled districtwide emergency and crisis response drills, such as disaster drills and active shooter drills, including school personnel, local law enforcement and first responders, and mutual aid responders

“We could not be more proud of the work of this Commission and we thank all of the members who worked throughout the year to bring their knowledge and experience to this important initiative. Together they have lain the foundation of a comprehensive plan for Westchester County to help keep our children safer and more secure,” said Westchester County District Attorney Anthony A. Scarpino, Jr. ”Working together across jurisdictions and districts, across organizations and communities strengthens all of us.”

Westchester County Executive George Latimer also commended the Commission’s work. “County officials are continually working to ensure the safety of all of our schools. This Commission, a joint effort between my Administration and DA Scarpino, is tasked with finding solutions which meet the needs of all parties involved by both keeping our children safe while also making sure schools are places where our kids feel at ease and can focus on learning. That is why these efforts and those undertaken by our County Police, including constantly working to be prepared through communication and training for any type of horrific incident, are so important.”

Other information in the report includes NY’s Red Flag Law, which is now in effect. New York educators, families and law enforcement can take legal action to potentially prevent violence when they spot so-called red flags in a person’s behavior, which may indicate future violence.

The report also includes a list of resources and references. It will be distributed to all school districts, police agencies, libraries, elected officials and other stakeholders throughout the County, encouraging adoption of these recommendations. The Commission is planning seminars for stakeholders to better understand how to collaboratively implement them.

Don't Be Fooled by a Fake Package Delivery Scam https://news.hamlethub.com/rye/publicsafety/4982-don-t-be-fooled-by-a-fake-package-delivery-scam4982-don-t-be-fooled-by-a-fake-package-delivery-scam https://news.hamlethub.com/rye/publicsafety/4982-don-t-be-fooled-by-a-fake-package-delivery-scam4982-don-t-be-fooled-by-a-fake-package-delivery-scam

Whether you took advantage of Amazon Prime Day, shopped an online "Christmas in July" sale or just ordered something sporadically, be on the lookout for fake package delivery scams. With so many people shopping online, package deliveries are on the rise and have doubled since 2010. Scammers, never missing a beat, are taking advantage of this to fool consumers into giving out their personal information.
 
How the Scam Works
 
You receive a call or an email from someone claiming to be your mail carrier or a parcel delivery service saying that they were unable to deliver a package to your home. If you don’t remember ordering anything that needs to be delivered, the caller may try to convince you the package is a gift from a friend or relative. The caller may sound friendly and professional, making the scam harder to spot.
 
The emails could also claim to be from the online retailer you purchased from, containing official logos and using professional language.
 
However, things get suspicious quickly. The caller will ask you to verify personal information or give them your credit card information to reschedule the delivery. Email messages may ask you to click on a tracking link or sign back into your account for your mystery package. When you click, you may download malware onto your computer or take you to a fraudulent site that gives con artists access to any personal information and passwords.
 
No matter the method of contact, the package doesn’t exist. Sharing your personal information puts you at risk for identity theft. 
 
How to Avoid Package Delivery Scams
 
  • Be wary of unsolicited communications. Package delivery companies will never contact you unsolicited via telephone call. Instead, if a package cannot be delivered, they usually will leave a note on your door. They may follow up with an email, but most official communications will be within your secure online account.
 
  • Track your packages. Always keep track of your online purchases and expected deliveries. Request tracking numbers so you will know when each package is due to arrive. When you know what you are expecting, it will be harder for a scammer to fool you with the claim of a fake package delivery.
 
  • Never give your personal information to strangers. Even when the caller is friendly, always use caution when asked for personal information. You can always hang up, look up the official customer service number, and directly contact the company to confirm their request. Whenever possible, use the customer service contact information or chat function within your account at the company.
 
  • Never click on links in unsolicited emails. Links in emails can download malware onto your computer. Don’t click links in emails from people you don’t know or from companies who you have not asked to be contacted by. Be wary of official-looking email; popular brands can easily be spoofed.

Window II by Natsuki Takauji The Rye Arts Center Presents a New Sculpture In Rye Town Park https://news.hamlethub.com/rye/places/4972-window-ii-by-natsuki-takauji-the-rye-arts-center-presents-a-new-sculpture-in-rye-town-park4972-window-ii-by-natsuki-takauji-the-rye-arts-center-presents-a-new-sculpture-in-rye-town-park https://news.hamlethub.com/rye/places/4972-window-ii-by-natsuki-takauji-the-rye-arts-center-presents-a-new-sculpture-in-rye-town-park4972-window-ii-by-natsuki-takauji-the-rye-arts-center-presents-a-new-sculpture-in-rye-town-park

Next time you stroll through Rye Town Park you’ll find a new addition to the landscape. Window II is an interactive sculpture created by New York-based Japanese artist Natsuki Takauji. This new work of art is a functioning swing surrounded by colorful windows. Made of stainless steel, steel, paint, fabric, and acrylic, Window II stands ten feet tall and overlooks the Long Island Sound. You won’t find the typical “do not touch” sign near this sculpture. Instead, visitors are encouraged to climb aboard and enjoy the swing.

The artist shares in a statement:

“‘Window’ means our perception. We are seeing everything through some sort of ‘Window’, and I am hoping this interactive sculpture will give a new experience of art in nature, art in public, and also one's perception. Swing is a metaphor of our life, we never stay still, moving from space to space, state to state, emotion to emotion. The design of it can remind us of many things that contain us and move us forward.”

Takauji studied drawing, painting, and sculpture at The Art Students League of New York where she currently teaches metal sculpture. Her work has been shown at the Venice Architecture Biennale, Berkeley College Gallery, Noho Gallery, The Center for Contemporary Art Bedminster, and The Cathedral of St. John the Divine. As the title implies, Window II echoes a previous work by Takauji, Window, which was displayed in Manhattan’s Riverside Park in 2014-2015.

Window II is part of The Rye Arts Center Public Art Initiative led by local sculptor, Bob Clyatt. It is a temporary installation and will remain in Rye Town Park for one year.

All are invited to learn more about Ms. Takauji and her work at an artist talk on Thursday, July 26, at 5:30 PM. The talk will take place at the sculpture.

Window II is made possible through collaboration with Rye Town Park and the generous support of ArtsWestchester, New York State Council on the Arts, Westchester Community Foundation, and Con-Tech Construction Technology, Inc.

Mayor de Blasio Announces Ticker Tape Parade to Honor World Cup Championship Winning U.S. Women's Soccer Team https://news.hamlethub.com/rye/events/4977-mayor-de-blasio-announces-ticker-tape-parade-to-honor-world-cup-championship-winning-u-s-women-s-soccer-team4977-mayor-de-blasio-announces-ticker-tape-parade-to-honor-world-cup-championship-winning-u-s-women-s-soccer-team https://news.hamlethub.com/rye/events/4977-mayor-de-blasio-announces-ticker-tape-parade-to-honor-world-cup-championship-winning-u-s-women-s-soccer-team4977-mayor-de-blasio-announces-ticker-tape-parade-to-honor-world-cup-championship-winning-u-s-women-s-soccer-team

To celebrate the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team’s World Cup victory, Mayor de Blasio announced the City will host a ticker tape parade in their honor and present them with the keys to the City on Wednesday, July 10th.   

“On and off the field, this team represents what’s best about New York City and our Nation. The confidence, grit, and perseverance of the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team serve as an inspiration to all who watch them,” said Mayor de Blasio.

"New York is incredibly proud to join the rest of the country in celebrating this exhilarating World Cup Victory," said First Lady Chirlane McCray. "We applaud the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team’s athletic prowess, their advocacy in fighting for equal pay, and their use of their international platform to speak out against injustice."

“We are incredibly excited and honored to celebrate the U.S. Women’s National Team’s World Cup victory with the amazing people of New York City,” said U.S. Soccer President Carlos Cordeiro. “This team is truly special, and so is the level of support that our fans have shown every step of the way along the quest to a fourth star. I’d like to sincerely thank Mayor de Blasio and the City of New York for providing us the opportunity to share this victory with everyone.”

In the final game of the tournament, the USWNT prevailed over the Netherlands 2 to 0. This is the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team’s fourth World Cup victory, breaking the record they set in 2015 for most Women’s World Cup victories. The United States is the only country to reach the semifinals of all eight FIFA Women's World Cups that have been held since the inaugural tournament in 1991.

The USWNT’s first match of the 2019 tournament against Thailand was the biggest win in the history of the Women's World Cup, surpassing Germany 's 11-0 result against Argentina in 2007. At 13-0, it’s also the largest margin of victory in the history of the World Cup.

New York City has hosted 206 parades along the Canyon of Heroes since the first one in 1886 celebrating the dedication of the Statue of Liberty. The last ticker tape parade held in New York City honored the U.S. Women’s National Soccer Team’s 2015 World Cup victory. That parade was the first time a women’s athletic team was honored.

A limited number of tickets will be available to the general public to attend a ceremony at City Hall celebrating the U.S. Women’s National Team which will take place on Wednesday, July 10 at 10:30 AM following the parade. Registration will open at 2:00 PM on Monday, July 8 at nyc.gov/USWNT19.

Details about parade access and press logistics will be released on Monday.
