Airplane Engine Blows Up Over Varsity Plumbing And Heating In Flushing Queens NY

I was at my daily day grind I pulled up to Durantes to finish my day. I saw all the news vans and crews there. asking what happened I was told that airplane had lost an engine when it blew into many pieces big and small. I pulled the flip out and stared the report you are about to see.

The Story quickly lead me to Varsity Plumbing And Heating in flushing queens NY.

There covered in mud from that days work I entered the building to get the story that big media was already covering. I with confidence introduced myself to the front office who lead me to the back office. This is where I heard big media planing to go to the roof. Then it happened a man named Rick Bellini was taking them up he is one of the owners. He said yea sure and we were on our way.

I then meet with the president of the Varsity Heating and Plumbing and interviewed Robert Bellini who took the time to sit down for a one on one.

The video below is a Citizen Journalism report on the airplane that's engine blew up over Flushing NY ,Varsity Plumbing and Heating

Duracell Power Lodge Times Square NYC 2008

Check this out Steets Journalism went to the Duracell Power Lodge. We got a tour of the place and even got to see where the energy was being stored for the lighting of the Welcome to 2009 sign that will be powered by all the visitors that use the snowmobile bikes in the Lodge. This is a good idea and it is a nice time for the family to be part of the New Years Eve party in such a nice way to save energy. Below is a video of the Duracell Lodge on our visit to Times Square. Please enjoy the video.

Permanent New Years Eve ball For Times Square NYC 2008

A Permanent New Years Eve Ball will be placed in times square for the world to see year round starting this year 2008. This is really a great idea who's time has come. The ball will change patterns,colors,images, and will be in a place that marks the spot where the ball drops for the world to see year round as the come to NYC to visit. That to me is what makes this idea so good. Maybe with the money on tourism to be made the city will not have to put up those proposed tolls for the bridges or the MTA fare hike. Don't hold your breath waiting for that to happen. In the meantime this year might be a good time to be at the ball drop.

This past Thursday, September 25th, we tried to get into the Clinton Global Initiative, that was happening at the Sheraton Hotel, in New York. We were a little too late too get press credential, we decided to get interviews with press professionals there were on break, outside the the event.

A few did not want to collaborate with information, but other people helped us out showing their faces and opinions about what they had seen inside the Clinton Global Initiative. The pictures bellow were giving to use from a professional photographer who wanted to collaborate with bloggers and new medias.

We also found a nice story on the corner: NorthWest and Delta were having a protest across from the Clinton event. We where able to get a great story and help showcase a great cause like Unions and workers rights. The material can be seen in our blog Hello IgnoRants.
