NEW YORK STATE — Ambulance care in the Harlem Valley already faces challenges, the worst being the lack of available volunteers to act as Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT) and man local Emergency Medical Services (EMS) units. Now, both volunteer and paid ambulance providers in New York face another potential hurdle: the governor has proposed a provision that would slash the Medicare/Medicaid Crossover Payment for Ambulance Services.

Unicorns and narwhals meet at Manhattan’s Cloisters

NEW YORK CITY — Unicorns are the go-to symbol of the beautiful, the magical, the mystical and the probably impossible. No one in the modern world has ever seen one. And yet there are mentions of them in ancient and classical literature and they appear in classical art — perhaps most notably in the tapestries that are now part of the collection of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York City, on display at The Cloisters in upper Manhattan.

Christmas films to watch again and again

There are those among us who patiently wait for the Thanksgiving dishes to be cleaned and put away and who then sit down with a happy sigh and begin watching Christmas movies (which is of course much more pleasant than listening to Christmas pop hits on the radio and at the mall).
