Has De Blasio Made New York Unlivable?

New York City is one of the most exciting and resilient cities on the world. However, the coronavirus, economic downturn, and race riots have reduced residents quality of life. New York's energy and spirit have been dimmed. And some speculate that under Bill de Blasio's "incompetent" leader it may never return. Michael Goodwin of the New York Post argues that Mayor de Blasio's leadership is so bad he will steer the city to irreversible ruin.

'Boycott China': Indian Americans, Taiwanese Americans, Tibetans take to Times Square to denounce China [Video]

'Boycott China': Indian Americans, Taiwanese Americans, Tibetans take to Times Square to denounce China

Indian Americans have called for 'Boycott China', a protest demonstration against China at the iconic Times Square in New York. This protest comes in the aftermath of the deadly border clash in the Himalayas that left 20 Indian soldiers dead and 76 injured. Despite the impact of coronavirus in New York, the demonstration saw dozens of Indian origin Americans standing in solidarity with members of the Tibetan community and Taiwanese Americans. Since the Galwan standoff between India and China, anti-China protests have broken out in several cities in the United States and scenes in New York looked no different as people were seen holding placards, raising the Indian and Tibetan national flags along with chanting pro-India and anti-china slogans. The protestors believe that even though the "boycott China" campaign has already been more successful than anticipated, there is still a lot to be done apart from simply stalling the use of Chinese products.
