County Route 501 (New Jersey)

County Route 501, abbreviated CR 501, is a county highway in New Jersey in two segments spanning Middlesex and Bergen Counties. The southern section runs from South Plainfield to Perth Amboy, the northern section runs from Bayonne to Rockleigh, the two sections are connected by New York State Route 440 across Staten Island; the New Jersey Department of Transportation lists CR 501 as a single highway with a length of 53.07 miles, which includes both road sections as well as the connection along NY 440. County Route 501 is signed east-west in Middlesex County; the western terminus of County Route 501 is at CR 529 in South Plainfield. From there, the route heads east to Metuchen, where it has a short concurrency with Route 27, it continues east, crossing the Garden State Parkway between Exits 127 and 129 in Woodbridge, following concurrencies with Route 184 and Route 440 to the southern section's eastern terminus at the Outerbridge Crossing. The northern section of CR 501 starts at the Route 440/Bayonne Bridge junction in Bayonne, making its way north to Route 63 in North Bergen.

The highway crosses Route 139 to the Holland Route 495 to the Lincoln Tunnel. At its junction with Route 63 in North Bergen, CR 501 begins a concurrency with Route 63 into Bergen County, while John F. Kennedy Boulevard loops around the northern end and heads south to Guttenberg, West New York and Weehawken. Major points on CR 501/Kennedy Boulevard include Marist High School, New Jersey City University, Saint Dominic Academy, Saint Peter's University, Journal Square, Union City High School, North Bergen High School, four County parks: Stephen R. Gregg Park and Mercer Park in Bayonne, Lincoln Park in Jersey City and James J. Braddock Park in North Bergen. Northeast of Journal Square, CR 501/Kennedy Boulevard crosses over Port Authority Trans-Hudson railroad tracks on an open-spandrel concrete arch bridge completed in 1926; the bridge is a pared-down version of a more ambitious elevated plaza scheme proposed by consulting engineer Abraham Burton Cohen. Cohen's office constructed a model using slot cars to demonstrate traffic flow through the plaza.

Prior to being renamed in honor of John F. Kennedy in the 1960s, the street was known as Hudson Boulevard. While there was discussion of building a county long road as early as the 1870s, parts of Hudson County Boulevard were opened in 1896. By 1913 it was completed, considered to be fine for "motoring", included the road's eastern section, Boulevard East, into which Kennedy Boulevard forks at 91st Street. Taken as a single road, the circuitous route of west and east sections of the entire boulevard runs from the southern tip of the county at Bergen Point to its northern border with Bergen County and south again to the Hoboken city line; the Boulevard was named the fifth most dangerous road for pedestrians in New Jersey, the most dangerous road in Hudson County for pedestrians in a February 2011 report by the non-profit Tri-State Transportation Campaign. The road was the location of six pedestrian fatalities between 2007 and 2009, which account for a little more than a fifth of Hudson County's 29 pedestrian deaths in the three-year period.

In November 2017 county officials launched a safety campaign for Kennedy Boulevard's five most dangerous intersections, based on accident data: 25th Street in Bayonne Lexington Avenue in Jersey City 36th Street in Union City 51st Street in West New York 91st Street in North BergenCounty officials had expressed interest in building a pedestrian bridge that crosses Kennedy Boulevard at 32nd Street, at the Union City-North Bergen border since at least. The two cities contracted a company to build the bridge for just over $4 million in November 2010. Construction plans began in May 2011, field work began that August. In 2013 Kennedy Boulevard was one of two main thoroughfares in Hudson County that were listed among the Tri-State Transportation Campaign's list of the top ten most dangerous roads for pedestrians in New Jersey, New York and Connecticut; the Boulevard, which ranked #6 on the list, was cited for the six pedestrian fatalities that occurred on it from 2009 to 2011. In Bergen County, CR 501 leaves its concurrency with Route 63 in Palisades Park, using Central Boulevard to connect to the US 1/9/46 concurrency and Route 93.

It is concurrent with Route 93 until it reaches that route's northern terminus at Route 4 in Englewood. CR 501 continues north from this junction through Rockleigh, crossing the New York State Line and becoming New York State Route 340. U. S.

Cozi TV

Cozi TV is an American free-to-air television network, owned by the NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations division of NBCUniversal. The network airs classic television series from the 1950s to the 2000s; the network originated as a local news and lifestyle programming format, launched between 2009 and 2011 and was seen on digital subchannels operated by nine owned-and-operated television stations of the NBC television network in the United States under the brand NBC Nonstop. The sitcoms and drama series now appearing on Cozi are from the NBCUniversal Television Distribution program library. Cozi is available via streaming services, FuboTV, YouTubeTV, Hulu with Live TV After NBCUniversal shut down NBC Weather Plus in December 2008, the company's flagship television station WNBC in New York City replaced Weather Plus' successor, automated local weather service, NBC Plus, on digital subchannel 4.2 on March 9, 2009, with NBC New York Nonstop, a channel that featured a mix of locally produced news and lifestyle programming.

In June 2010, NBC Local Media appointed former WNBC general manager Tom O'Brien in the newly created position of executive vice president of Nonstop Network. In October, WNBC sister stations WCAU and WRC-TV launched their own versions of the Nonstop channel in the Philadelphia and Washington, D. C. markets. Chicago's WMAQ-TV launched its own local version in November 2010. NBC's three owned-and-operated stations in California collaborated to launch the only regional Nonstop channel, NBC California Nonstop, in January 2011; each station's Nonstop subchannel carried eight hours of locally produced programming, along with core programming from affiliated production company LXTV. On November 3, 2011, NBC Owned Television Stations announced that its seven local Nonstop subchannels would become a single national network under the proposed name NBC Nonstop Network. An NBC executive indicated that the independently formatted Nonstop channels were performing well, but needed separate programming. NBC stated that the network would carry reruns of classic television series during daytime hours and lifestyle programming at night, that local stations would be able to preempt the national Nonstop Network programming to carry their own local content.

By July 2012, it was announced that NBC was considering using a different name for the national network, with "Bob TV" among the names being put under consideration. On October 17, 2012, Time Out Chicago reported that NBCUniversal would launch a new classic television network called Cozi TV. NBC soft launched Cozi TV on its owned-and-operated stations as well as some charter affiliates on December 20, 2012. Cozi TV permits its local affiliates the option of preempting up to 13 hours of the network's programming each week in order to carry newscasts or other locally produced programming; the network carries The More You Know E/I block which airs on NBC Saturday mornings from Litton Entertainment on late Sunday mornings to allow their affiliates to be freed of commitments to purchasing E/I programming off the open market. NBCUniversal broadcasts Cozi TV in most markets served by a station owned by the NBCUniversal Owned Television Stations group, either on subchannels of NBC or Telemundo stations.

The network is available on the digital subchannels of other television stations those affiliated with NBC. The network is available to stations on a barter basis, in which Cozi TV and its affiliates split the responsibility of selling advertising inventory as well as the commercial time allocated each hour; the network soft-launched on Telemundo owned-and-operated stations in most markets. The network's initial affiliates outside of the core NBC O&O group included KAIL-TV in Fresno, California, KVOA in Tucson, KSNV-DT in Las Vegas and eight Texas stations owned by London Broadcasting Company, with a total initial reach of 26% of U. S. television households. By July 2013, the network's reach had expanded to 42% of the U. S. through affiliation deals with WMFP in Boston, KUBE-TV in Houston and the E. W. Scripps Company's KSHB-TV in Kansas City. On June 2, 2014, Cozi TV's programming was made available on AT&T U-verse channel 578 and Dish Network channel 82 on a part-time basis, through a deal with LeSEA Broadcasting's Family Entertainment Television network.

A Pair of Silk Stockings

"A Pair of Silk Stockings" is a short story written by Kate Chopin. Published in 1897, the story follows Mrs. Sommers who prefers spending a windfall on herself, rather than on her children. Mrs. Sommers comes into the small fortune of $15. After a few days of reflection, she decides to use the money to purchase clothing for her children so they may look "fresh and dainty and new for once in their lives." That narrative suggests that Mrs. Sommers had been before her marriage a wealthy woman, but now "needs of the present absorbed her every faculty." An exhausted Mrs. Sommers rests at a counter. There she is entranced by their smoothness. "Not thinking at all," she disregards her plans of procuring clothes for her children and instead spends her money and her afternoon for herself. She purchases boots to go with her stockings, buys fitted kid gloves, reads expensive magazines while lunching at a high-class restaurant, ends her day sharing chocolates with a fellow theatre goer. After the play ends, she boards the cable car to return home with "a poignant wish, a powerful longing that the cable car would never stop anywhere, but go on and on with her forever."

The story was first published in Vogue. Chopin chose to write for Vogue because the magazine was uncharacteristically "fearless and truthful" for the 1890s in its depiction of women and their lives. Scholar Emily Toth observes that many of Chopin's boldest stories were published in Vogue, including "The Story of an Hour". Vogue published these stories so earnestly that, Toth suggests, it gave Chopin the decidedly false impression that American reviewers would be accepting of her coming scandalous The Awakening. Allen Stein argues that serpentine silk stockings represent the empty consumerism that Mrs. Sommers uses to try to escape her life. Chopin critic and biographer Barbara Ewell concurs, calls the story "a small masterpiece." She posits that "the power of money to enhance self-esteem and confidence is the core" of the narrative. Describing Mrs. Sommers as "little", Chopin refers to more than her physical stature; the neighbors are all aware of what Mrs. Sommers' social standing had been before her marriage, see how her marriage has reduced her.

On the day of her shopping trip, Mrs. Sommers' physical exhaustion mirrors the weakening of her self resolve; until she finds the stockings, Mrs. Sommers has been able to maintain her selflessness, but the temptation proves too much and she succumbs to the "mechanical impulse that directed her actions and freed her of responsibility"—words which prefigure Edna Pontellier in Chopin's novel The Awakening. Mrs. Sommers' sojourn into a materialistic world brings her confidence, but her experience, just like the matinee she finds there, is transient. Mrs. Sommers' brief moment of happiness, Ewell suggests, must end as it does for many of Chopin's characters. Arner, Robert D.. "On First Looking into Chopin's Fiction". In Bernard Koloski.

Joanne McCarthy (journalist)

Joanne Maree Therese McCarthy is an Australian journalist. Through an extensive series of reports for The Newcastle Herald, McCarthy is considered to have played a role in initiating the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse; the series of stories detailed incidents of historic sexual abuse of children within the Roman Catholic Diocese of Maitland-Newcastle, attempts by the church at covering up the allegations of abuse while protecting the Catholic priests who were accused of abusing children. McCarthy's series of articles commenced in 2006 when she received a phone call from a local reader who asked why the conviction of priest John Denham, still working with the church, had never been covered by the local media; this prompted McCarthy to begin an ongoing investigation, beginning with the story of Denham which uncovered numerous cases of children being abused by priests across the Hunter Region, subsequent cover-ups by the church including Patrick Cotter's cover-up of crimes perpetrated by Vince Ryan.

McCarthy found the church had attempted to cover-up abuse committed by Denis McAlinden, who had died in 2005 without being prosecuted. McCarthy's reporting about McAlinden prompted the church to issue an apology for instances of abuse by church personnel with an admission that the church had been cooperating with authorities regarding McAlinden "for some time". Following the suicide of abuse victim John Pirona in 2012, McCarthy wrote an opinion piece where she said "there will be a royal commission because there must be", which prompted editor Chad Watson and McCarthy to spearhead the newspaper's "Shine the Light" campaign in an attempt for a royal commission to be held, to seek justice for the victims. Following a "Shine the Light" rally, attended by Detective Chief Inspecter Peter Fox, Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard announced a royal commission would be created. Gillard's final act as Prime Minister in 2013 was to write a letter to McCarthy thanking her for the work she had done.

For her coverage on local historic child sex abuse cases within the Catholic Church, McCarthy won the 2013 Gold Walkley. McCarthy has said she identifies with the movie Spotlight due to the similarities between her work and that of the investigative journalists at The Boston Globe who uncovered the Catholic Archdiocese of Boston sex abuse scandal. Following a brief period of working as a nurse at the Royal Prince Alfred Hospital, McCarthy began her journalism career with a cadetship at the Gosford Star in 1980, before she moved to the Central Coast Express Advocate. In 2002, she joined The Newcastle Herald. McCarthy graduated from Henry Kendall High School in 1977; the oldest of 11 children, McCarthy grew up in a Catholic family

WAC stayed at this level, with one exception during the 1977–78 season, for the next seventeen years, establishing themselves as a middle table side. At the end of the 1984–85 season, Wolfsberger AC dropped back to the third level; the club returned for two further second-level appearances during the 1988–89 and 1990–91 seasons, but was relegated each time. In 1994, the club was a founding member of the reactivated Regional League as the third tier of the pyramid.
