Warm up the orchestra, lace up your dance slippers, and bring the diva to the stage! For our latest show we’re telling the origin story of Lincoln Center, the fine arts campus which assembles some of the city’s finest music and theatrical institutions to create the classiest 16.3 acres in New York City. Lincoln Center was created out of an urgent necessity, bringing together the New York Philharmonic, the New York City Ballet, the Metropolitan Opera, the Juilliard School of Music and other august fine-arts companies as a way of providing a permanent home for American culture. However this tale of Robert Moses’ urban renewal philosophies and the survival of storied institutions has a tragic twist. The campus sits on the site of a former neighborhood named San Juan Hill, home to thousands of African American and Puerto Rican families in the mid 20th century.  No trace of this neighborhood exists today. Or, should we say, ALMOST no trace. San Juan Hill exists, at least briefly, with a part of classic American cinema. The Oscar-winning film West Side Story, based on the celebrated musical, was partially filmed here. The movie reflects many realities of the neighborhood and involves talents who would be, ahem, instrumental in Lincoln Center’s continued successes. FEATURING – Leonard Bernstein, Leontyne Price, James Earl Jones, Imelda Marcos, David Geffen and, naturally, the Nutcracker! www.boweryboyshistory.com

President Trump was in the heart of American manufacturing territory today: Kenosha, Wisconsin. He gave a big speech and signed two executive orders: One directing the federal government to make good on his campaign promise to "buy American, hire American" and other concerning H1-B visas. Candidate Trump was no fan of the program, which allows American companies to bring in skilled foreign workers, but President Trump might have his hands tied. Plus, we'll follow the money in the police body camera business. Competition is heating up, and there's big money to be made on the back end. Then: You probably know "Two Buck Chuck" as the super-thrifty wine at your local Trader Joes. But Charles Shaw was a real guy, and he made good wine and made good money Napa before he lost it all.

How long do you choose to live? Have you ever thought about that before? Life is such a delicate thing, yet it’s not something to experience without a zest and vigor that throws caution to the wind, and pulls every ounce out of this opportunity. Rationality would say that the longer you live, the more opportunity for experiences you have. This is definitely true if, of course, you’re taking full advantage of the situation called “your life”. Many people live less in terms of number of years, but far more in terms of experiences, fullness, and impact. Abraham Lincoln said, “It’s not the years in your life that count, it’s the life in your years.” So when you decide how long you want to live and walk in that direction, make sure that it’s tied to a strong enough why and add plenty of life to those years you’re vying for. Today we have an absolutely phenomenal teacher, healer, and guide to help you live a longer, more fruitful life. Christiane Northrup, M.D., is a true pioneer and leading authority in the field of health and wellness. She’s here to share some powerful insights that will last you a lifetime (and a much longer, healthier lifetime at that!). So, click play, take good notes, and enjoy! In this episode you'll discover: What being ageless really means. Where the concept of a retirement age came from. A powerful study from Harvard University that showed how your belief system affects your aging. What specific attributes that centenarians (people who are 100+ years old) all over the world share. What righteous anger is. Why over-screening for diseases could be problematic (this is important!). What stage zero cancer is and the impact it’s having on our society. Why the inventor of the PSA test for men’s prostates regrets introducing it to the world. Some small pros and cons to consider about marijuana use. Why curiosity and asking questions can be a tremendous key to long-term health. How to reset your taste buds. What it means to savor the pleasure of food. How your DNA might be influencing your environment. How movement is tied to longevity.
