Adult Film actor Ron Jeremy fights to save the tree planted by his father
Ron Jeremy, an adult film star, is fighting to save a tree from being cut that was planted by his father when he was born.
He Twitted on Saturday, saying that utility Con Edison is trying to cut a tree that was planted in Queens in 1953. Along with this, Jeremy also uploaded a photo of himself hugging the tree outside his home on Bell Boulevard in Bayside.
Due to the Coronavirus pandemic, Ron is living in the Hollywood Hotel. He told us that his neighbor told him that the tree trunk was wrapped in yellow tape, ready to be cut last week.
"I looked after that tree all my life. They tried to chop the tree down years ago, but I wouldn't let them," Jeremy said. "I even belted myself to the tree."
Con Edison replied to Ron's tweet by saying that the tree is on city property, and the Parks Department can remove it if required. It is entirely upon the city to whether or not to cut the tree and prevent any kind of damage the tree can cause to powerlines.
"Let my little tree live," Jeremy said. "He ain't ready to go yet."

Varying symptoms of Pediatric Inflammatory Syndrome
Many children are suffering from COVID-19, and it is observed that the number of children with pediatric multi-system inflammatory disease is increasing; although the symptoms differ.
Three cases have been analysed in detail wherein three children of 8, 12, and 14 years have differently developed this lethal inflammatory illness. All three children have nearly escaped death, and they all had antibodies for COVID-19, but they were unaware.
First case: 8-year old Jayden Hardowar
As per 23rd April reports, Jayden was healthy and involved in singing, LEGO’s as well as remote learning. But that night he suffered from 103-degree fever and thus, his parents took him to a paediatrician for a personal visit, who asked them to take Jayden home and supervise Tylenol. His father told that at this time, Jayden had no appetite and was thirsty all the time. After two days, his temperature was optimum, but he started suffering from diarrhoea.
The 25th April Telehealth visit helped the paediatrician to note that Jayden was not eating and advised to take Pedialyte. The parents thought that these symptoms were the result of his low diet, but the child went into cardiac arrest. The child’s 15-year old brother Tyron supported with CPR until the ambulance reached. He has recovered but still very weak.
Second Case: 12-year old Jissel Rosario from New Jersey
Jissel experienced pain in her upper thigh one morning and her mom, Alma Cruz thought that this was because she might have slept wrong. Cruz told that she was quite alert about staying indoors to prevent exposure from COVID-19, to leave their Newark apartment. But she took her for an emergency check-up when she observed swelling in Jissel’s thigh. In the next few days, the 12-year old’s leg became worse, and the prescribed medications were not working. When her foot began changing colours, her mother took her to the hospital where Ultrasound helped to detect the fatal blood clot in her foot. Jissel was in a critical condition, but it became worse when the clot reached her lung during a process to treat the clot, and she suffered from cardiac arrest. Following the 45-minute CPR, Jissel was assisted with life support.
COVID-19 could not be confirmed as the reason for the blood clot as she was tested negative for COVID-19, but she tested positive for this virus’ antibodies. This suggests that she had suffered from the pandemic, but she recovered. According to the paediatrician, a similar pattern is observed in many corona cases wherein it is believed that due to the overreaction of the immune system, there is inflammation in the blood vessels that develops after the infection with the virus.
Dr James Schneider of Cohen Children’s Hospital informed that inflammation could lead to such clots, and the coronavirus infections can also be related to abnormal clotting.
Third case: 14-year old Jack McMorrow from Queens
Jack observed a strange rash on his hands, and this rash began spreading from the palm to the wrist. The teen did not experience any underlying conditions, but after three days, he developed a sore throat, and his temperature was 101.8. His paediatrician recommended amoxicillin as he suspected this to be a bacterial infection, but Jack’s condition became worse.
Jack tested negative for COVID-19 and Mononucleosis, and by night, he felt acute pain from head to toe, his temperature rose to 104.7, and the size of the lymph node in his chest increased. His heart rate increased, and blood pressure levels decreased. In the ICU, he was treated with steroids, and he tested positive for Corona antibodies. Eventually, he recovered.
Voters getting frustrated on voter fraud allegations due to vote-by-mail procedure
Some voters got frustrated due to the voter fraud allegations in Paterson in this week's vote-by-mail city council election and are raising voice against Gov. Phil Murphy, who implemented the plan of the election.
This week, Councilman Luis Velez said that if the corruption cases continue to grow, Gov. Phil should consider cancelling the elections and organize a new vote this summer.
The governor said there are no plans to change the rules of the election and said," I don't have any specific insights on Tuesday in Paterson. It is clearly something we are looking at. My guess is with some fullness of time, and we'll have more to tell on that."
There are reports that hundreds of votes were allegedly found bundled and stuffed in a single mailbox in Haledon. According to postal workers, they also saw hundreds of other vote-by-mail ballots in mailboxes around the city. A video released on social media showed a voter mailing many votes. Such videos and incidents would raise a question if there were any organized effort by one campaign to steal the election.
"He (Gov. Murphy) has now placed us in a position where we are being cheated out of our votes," said community activist Ernest Rucker.
Storm hits Tri sate region with tornados possibilities
On Friday evening, the critical storm moved towards the tri-state region with a risk of high-speed winds, frequent lightning, and heavy rains. In New York, a tornado warning was issued for Ulster County, with a tornado watch in Dutchess and Ulster counties until 10 p.m. The overall effect of the storm was low, but Northern New Jersey and Hudson Valley remain at high risk for tornados on Friday night. Even if the tornados remain absent, high-speed winds may damage the northwest of New York City.
The warning for severe storms was in effect all through the evening for Dutchess, Orange, Putnam, and Westchester counties in New York, along with Fairfield County in Connecticut. The wind speeds reached 60 mph, which crossed through Carmel, New York, and across state lines into Danbury. Many trees were knocked down and power lines in Putnam and Ulster.
The storm first entered into the region at around 5 p.m., and the affected the weather of the city and coastal area in the night. The effects included some rain and far weaker isolated thunderstorms passing through Friday into Saturday.
The storm was a result of muggy humidity and soaring temperatures in the region last days.

All the things you should know about Coronavirus on Sunday, May 17
As most of the cases had recovered and the virus mostly contained, China had started reopening. Life is returning to normal, and lockdowns are being loosened, and many schools and factories have opened.
Dr. Zhong Nanshan, one of the top medical advisers in the country, says that they fear a second wave of COVID-19 because it is not determined whether people develop immunity for the virus after contracting it.
One more reason for the worry, as recently eight sailors from the aircraft carrier USS Theodore Roosevelt had been tested positive for the virus second time.
Zhong also told that Wuhan suppressed the first reports and the magnitude of the initial outbreak. "At the very beginning, they kept silent, and then I said probably we have (a larger) number of people being infected," he said.
New clusters of cases had emerged in China. More than 8,000 people were quarantined in Shulan on Friday.
Some cases for the second wave had also been observed from South Korea. The number of confirmed cases related to Seoul's nightclub cluster had reached 168.
Many leaders fear the second wave as they reopen the country for their economies. Still, people are getting impatient, and many protests were seen this weekend in the United States, Germany, and the United Kingdom.
Local gaming store decided to close to keep people safe in Southeast Wichita
Jennifer Burton and her husband are local residents, and they opened Grinning Goblin in 2018. The building for the store was empty without walls.
Around two months ago, they had to close their store due to COVID-19 and planned not to open it again. "I would rather close to prevent people from getting sick, that I hold dear to my heart, that I consider family, and I mean it's just not worth it to me."
A week ago, the landlord asked them for the rent for the last two months, and they didn't have any money to pay for it. Many local consumers are sad that one more business is going to get shut due to Coronavirus.
According to Burton, it was a tough decision to make, but he feels it was a correct one. "I'm sad to see it go. We really were a home for a lot of people, and I didn't really expect the amount of support we got over this, it kind of blew me away."
Burton also told that one more gaming shop in Wichita decided to close. She also wants the customers that they will soon return to the business, and just the location will be different.

Cuatro niños de Dallas fueron hospitalizados por una enfermedad asociada al coronavirus - Univision
Cuatro niños presentaron síntomas similares a los del síndrome de Kawasaki tras haber dado positivo por coronavirus o estar en contacto con personas contagiadas.
A las preocupaciones por los síntomas del coronavirus se le han añadido las del síndrome inflamatorio multisistémico pediátrico, un mal que se ha presentado en niños que han dado positivo por covid-19. Esta enfermedad tiene síntomas similares al síndrome de Kawasaki, pero con un daño cardiaco más marcado y ha afectado a cientos de niños en Europa y Estados Unidos. El Hospital Cook Childrens de Dallas ha recibido cuatro pacientes desde el 9 de mayo de entre seis y 14 años de edad, tres de ellos ya dados de alta y uno aún hospitalizado. Y aunque solo uno de ellos dio positivo a la prueba de coronavirus, los otros tres estuvieron en contacto con personas contagiadas. Los Centros para el Control y Prevención de Enfermedades ( CDC) confirmaron el lunes que esta enfermedad está asociada al coronavirus. ¿En qué consiste el síndrome de Kawasaki? En el síndrome de Kawasaki, el sistema inmunológico del cuerpo se desborda y comienza a atacar los propios vasos sanguíneos después de que desaparece una infección. Sus síntomas son similares a los del síndrome de Kawasaki: inflamación en las arterias que puede limitar el flujo de sangre al corazón y provocar baja presión arterial, fiebre por tres a cinco días, salpullido, inflamación de las glándulas del cuello, labios agrietados,hinchazón de manos, pies y boca, enrojecimiento de los ojos, dolor abdominal, conjuntivitis, vómito, diarrea y letargo. La principal preocupación de los médicos son las afectaciones al corazón y el sistema circulatorio, pues pueden derivar en ataques cardiacos y fallas de órganos. Más de una centena de posibles casos se han reportado en Nueva York y hay docenas similares en otros países, especialmente en Italia y el Reino Unido. Los niños de cinco años son los más afectados por la enfermedad de Kawasaki, que si bien puede ser mortal, también es tratable. Mapa de casos de coronavirus en Texas, por condados Te puede interesar:
