Long Island’s Bagel Boss is soon starting home delivery
A staple breakfast spot of Long Island people is the Bagel Boss, which is being run by sixth-generation.
Due to pandemics, many of their outlets are closed, and people are unable to reach their bagels. For this, Alex Rosner, the General manager of Bagel Boss, is launching an online platform to deliver bagels to homes across the country.
Bagels after being baked are cooled, packed, and shipped the same morning.
"If you are from Long Island, you know that the bagels just aren't the same anywhere else," said Rosner. "Eating a fresh bagel any place from Long Island, specifically Bagel Boss, brings a smile to your face doesn't matter where you are in the country, and right now, everyone can use a smile."
You can sign in to their website BagelsOfTheMonth.com and order from a variety of flavors from 'Everything' to 'Rainbow.'
Rosner is implementing all the measures to keep the customers safe and provide them with excellent and reliable products.
"We pride ourselves on being able to give back to the community," said Rosner. "One way to do that is just by always be opening and having a place to be able to get food and supplies."
Virtual travel: “View from My Window” makes you travel the world in quarantine
Barbara Duriau had created a Facebook Page- View from My Window. This virtual platform allows millions of people to treat their eyes by viewing beautiful travel pictures.
Duriau was keen to know about the circumstances and reality across the world. She is a freelance graphic designer from Amsterdam, and in late March, she posted a picture showing the view from her window. When the lockdown started, she realized that everyone is stuck with the same view.
By a month after she created this page, more than two million people joined the page. This page has brought out stories of various people, and people share more than just their view.
Sarah Hill from Arrowbear Lake posted that she finds it interesting to look at pictures posted by others as she has travelled internationally with her husband. In mid-April, she posted a snowy landscape picture. Hill explained she wanted to post this as many would find this unique and would not expect to see in Southern California; she wanted to share her perspective from that little part of the world. Hill said her post got comments from individuals in Michigan right to Austria, and she's not the only one. Each upload receives uncountable comments from individuals everywhere throughout the world, sharing expressions of inspiration and support.
The creator, Duriau, expressed her will to publish a book with the pictures from this Facebook group, and she would donate the earnings for a social cause.

even during the interview requested by the reporter."

practice safety measures not only at sites of care but while away from work. I let my guard

Bears got into a rental cabin and were taken out by police
In a rental cabin in Gatlinburg, two friends got unexpected visitors as black bears during their vacations this weekend.
Michelle Eberhart had come with her husband and some friends to Gatlinburg to have some fun on the weekend. Friday, when all the men were busy playing golf outside the cabin, Michelle and her friends noticed a black bear standing at the back of a closed door.
The black bear broke into the cabin very quickly, and the women fled to bedrooms to be safe.
Adding to the problem, came three more bears around the porch.
The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency knows a lot about East Tennessee animals like black bears, and according to them, the bears are coming out of their hibernation, and this is not their typical behavior.
The police were called, and as police came, the bear was taken out of the cabin and also the other three bears on the porch. But bears took some souvenirs with them.
"They got 5 pounds of Reese's Peanut Butter Cups and a pound of M&M's and two pounds of Sour Patch Kids and two bags of potato chips, two beers and two Diet Cokes and about 20 Zyrtecs," Eberhart said.
Paying tribute to moms on frontlines this Mother's Day
This mother’s day we are paying canonisation to the lovely ladies and moms on the blue line of the coronavirus battle .their act of courage and strength being displayed will set an example for all of us that how humanity prevails.
Nurses like Lindsey Burrell are holding dying patients' hands but are unable to hug their children at the end of these gruelling days. It is right how the relationship of a mother to her child is nine months greater to any other relationship in this world.
In the constant fight against coronavirus, daily our superheroes – doctors, nurses, policemen & policewomen, bankers – leave their homes, and work to protect us, the common people. They step out leaving their parents, kids, spouse at home despite knowing that they themselves can get infected by COVID-19. Thus we need to understand that, we should be at home and keep our family safe. We should be at quarantine in our home, and we should avoid unnecessary travelling. And help our blue line members to do their work so that we all can fight with this coronavirus and we all should win from this COVID-19.
From our time in their wombs to their last breath, mothers play a benevolent role in the lives of each individual. They change our diapers, sit through our parent-teacher meetings while teachers complain about us, tolerate our adolescent mood-swings and advise us on relationships and careers. They are basically all-rounders — equipped to deal with every situation, and the lockdown period due to the coronavirus is no exception.
This Mother's Day will be much different for many, but that extra sacrifice is now paired with an even deeper gratitude for the women who give and save lives and hence shall forever be our creator, our goddess, our mother!

Rare symptoms found in some children suffering from COVID-19 in NY
Dozens of children in the US are admitted to hospitals suffering from serious inflammatory symptoms, which may have their roots to COVID-19.
Some cases first detected in Europe were thought to suffer from Kawasaki disease, which is an illness involving inflamed arteries. But now New York authorities had confirmed 64 such cases in the state and these children need intensive care as they have heart inflammation.
Some doctors in New York suggest that this may be a rare complication of COVID-19, but this is still not proven.
Chief medical correspondent Dr. Jen Ashton said that parents are not required to be worried about this rare event as it remains unique, and most kids have mild symptoms of COVID-19.
The signs and symptoms related to this complication are:
- Eye irritation
- Swollen lymph nodes
- Swelling of the hands and feet
As this symptom is new and there is no particular treatment for it, the children with such conditions require ICU and some supportive treatment.
"Again, doctors are treating the symptoms because we don't know the cause yet," she said.
Ashton also said that the reports suggest that only a small percentage of children are found positive, which is less than 3%.
