When they have nothing, they will plant evidence on you and the justice... Read more →

Taking Things to the Next Level... on October 14th Darrell Alston spent more than 11 years in prison, using that time to make plans and sketch designs for hundreds of pairs of shoes, which would eventually lead to the conception of his luxury sneaker and apparel brand, Bungee Oblečení. Shortly after launching his business, Alston became one of those feel-good, national comeback stories you often hear about, eventually being featured on the Today Show, Inside Edition, The Nick Cannon Show and more, helping this humble Philadelphia-based entrepreneur’s dreams of success in the luxury fashion world come true. In the summer of 2021, Richard A. Johnson, the CEO of FootLocker, contacted Alston. Shortly thereafter, a collection of sneakers from Bungee was added to Foot Locker’s website and stores for sale.

Gaming and New Jersey: What's the history?

From Atlantic City to online gaming, it's safe to say that New Jersey has a long-standing affiliation with gaming and gambling fun. The famous Boardwalk dates back centuries - and the industry is a major money-puller in the heart of NJ. Since then, the thirst for games has grown massively and has, of course, evolved with the advent of online slots and more. Let's take a quick look at a brief history of gaming and gambling across the state and why NJ is one of the more playful territories across the US. When did gambling first become legal in New Jersey? Gambling laws have come and gone in New Jersey since the 1700s, from the first establishment of Atlantic City and the iconic Boardwalk. In fact, lotteries and sports betting have helped cement the growing NJ economy over the years. For example, while betting at the famed Freehold Raceway wasn't... Read more →

SAY IT ISN'T SO!!! The Experts Doubt Economic, Environmental Value of Wind Power

Heavy transport, wind turbine transportation Shutterstock (The Center Square) – Wind farms continue to pop up like mushrooms across Michigan’s landscape, and with them, plenty of backlash from energy, economic and environmental public policy experts. Michigan ranks 15th for total wind generation nationwide, according to a 2021 study released by Commodity.com, which was updated last May. The study reports wind provides 8% of the total electricity consumed by the nation’s homes, government entities and businesses while contributing 7% to Michigan’s electricity grid. While proponents tout the environmental benefits of wind over other energy sources, it typically takes 18 months after its full installation before a turbine truly can be said to “have paid off its carbon debt,” according to Kevon Martis, a certified land use planner and zoning administrator for Lenawee County’s Deerfield Township. Martis explained to The Center Square that the manufacturing and transportation of turbines to their destination... Read more →
