Elusive British graffiti artist Banksy announces 1-month residency in New York City
This week Gang Green should try to get the running game more established while incorporating a more intermediate air attack. The Jets should try to incorporate more screen passes, quick slants, and draw plays to keep the Falcon defense off-balance. Running back Mike Goodson will return from suspension on Monday night and he could be an explosive threat with the ball in his hands out of the backfield. Defense Consistent coverage in the secondary- This season the Falcons have struggled to run the ball (ranked 23rd in the NFL )which has forced Matt Ryan to rely heavily on the passing attack. Ryan has several dangerous weapons at his disposal (Julio Jones, Harry Douglas, Roddy White, Tony Gonzalez) therefore there will be a ton of pressure on the Jets secondary to make plays. Gang Green will more than likely be without rookie Dee Milliner which means that Darrin Walls could once again see extensive playing time. New York’s secondary must remain consistent in coverage and prevent yards after the catch. Contain Gonzalez- Atlanta tight end Tony Gonzalez is off to a hot start with 23 catches for 242 yards and 3 touchdowns. The Jets defense must account for Gonzalez at all times and prevent the future Hall of Famer from taking over the game. Gang Green’s defense must be physical with Tony at the line and make the Falcon tight end earn all of his yards. Don’t be surprised to see the Jets double cover Tony Gonzalez. Bring the heat- One of the best ways to slow down the Atlanta passing attack is to get consistent pressure on Matt Ryan.
New York school bus aide accused of assaulting autistic rider
Friday, Oct. 4, 2013 New York school bus aide accused of assaulting autistic rider Sponsored Links By Chelsea Cariker The Atlanta Journal-Constitution A Long Island school bus attendant pleaded not guilty Thursday to charges that he assaulted a 5-year-old autistic boy as he rode the bus home on Monday. Richard Mason, of Brentwood, New York, allegedly grabbed Connor Shirangis arm and pinned it behind the childs back in an attempt to discipline him, police told CBS news . Shirangi, a special needs student in the Commack school district in Suffolk County, New York, sustained a fractured arm and bruises to his face and abdomen, a New York CBS affiliate reported. Excessive force was used and my child was severely injured, the boys mother, Desiree Johnston-Shirangi, told CBS. Aside from the broken arm he has bruising about the waist consistent with being tied down. Shirangi-Johnston told the news organization that her son was apparently swinging his feet and kicking the seat of the bus when Mason got upset and handled him the way you wouldnt handle anybody. My son was going through this and the fear that he had to the point that he urinated in his pants and I wasnt there, she told CBS. Mason, an employee of the ACME Bus Corp. which contracts with the school district, said he was attempting to keep the boy from harm. He was pounding his hand against the window and to prevent the window from shattering, I blocked him, he told Channel 12 Long Island . The bus company said in a statement that Mason was trying to stop a fight between two boys when Shirangi began hitting the window. He has been suspended pending the investigation and trial, the Commack School District said in a statement. As soon as we learned of the allegations, we immediately confirmed that the defendant had been removed from any and all District routes and will have no contact with our students, they said in the statement. ACME has assured the District that the driver assistant had been properly screened and trained and that he had no prior incidents. Mason was released after an arraignment hearing in a Suffolk County court Thursday. He pleaded not guilty to charges of third-degree assault and acting in a manner to injure a child.
By Associated Press, NEW YORK Graffiti by the secretive British artist Banksy is turning up on the streets of New York City and all over social media. Banksy announced on his website that he is undertaking an artists residency on the streets of New York this month. Looking for things to do? Select one or more criteria to search Kid-friendly Get ideas Hes posting pictures of his work on the website and fans are plastering the images all over Facebook, Twitter and Instagram. Though hes not providing exact locations, those who happen to come across the works are trying to spread the word. Jennifer Hawkins, who runs a public relations agency in Chelsea, posted pictures on Facebook after finding a Banksy sighting right out my office backdoor, on 24th Street between Sixth and Seventh avenues. Spray-painted on a building wall already defaced by illegible scrawls, the graffiti shows a black silhouette of a dog lifting his leg on a fire hydrant, with the words You complete me in a cartoon bubble. My favorite part of the whole thing is having the little groupies standing out there, Hawkins said, referring to the small crowds of fans taking pictures. The Daily Telegraph, a British outlet, has created an online map to try to keep track of the images. The Museum of Modern Art posted links on its Twitter feed with a Banksy watch tag. At least one of the works is gone already, altered by other graffiti artists and then whitewashed. The picture, done on a wall in Chinatown, showed a barefoot boy with a cap standing on another boys back, pointing at a sign that says, Graffiti is a crime. Banksy is calling the New York City effort Better Out Than In, a reference to a quote by impressionist Paul Cezanne, All pictures painted inside, in the studio, will never be as good as those done outside.
