The Jaffe Briefing - February 20, 2020

TRENTON – Gov. Phil Murphy wants to change the way politics is done, which many will applaud. But will anything really happen? Hard to tell, as the governor is trying to implement this strange, new concept called “ethics.” We may need to look up the definition, but apparently it creates all these new rules to encourage transparency. Murphy is talking about more ...

The Jaffe Briefing - February 19, 2020

STATEWIDE – With yet another Democratic debate tonight, featuring Mike Bloomberg as a fresh punching bag, where does New Jersey stand in all of this? Usually, our primary election is held so late, in June, that our votes really don’t matter. But things are really splintered with the Democrats these days, so who knows? Apparently FDU does, releasing the latest poll ...

The Jaffe Briefing - February 18, 2020

ON THE CAMPAIGN TRAIL – Candidates might think twice about ‘going postal’ after the U.S. Postal Service admits that it can no longer guarantee on-time delivery of political mail. Supposedly, neither snow, nor rain, nor heat, nor gloom of night stops mail carriers from “swift completion” of their rounds. But, thousands upon thousands of political mailers sure as ...

NEWARK - Need a last-minute Valentine's Day getaway? Want it absolutely free? All you have to do is show up at Terminal B of Newark Liberty International Airport at 2 p.m. today with your beloved, dressed in a tuxedo and/or a wedding dress, and you could be whisked off to Lisbon, Portugal for three glorious nights. TAP Air Portugal announced this week that it is ...

The Jaffe Briefing - February 13, 2020

KEARNY – It’s a bad day for Gen. Philip Kearny. Sure, he was killed in action during the Civil War, but today’s headlines would certainly prove upsetting. His statue has been proudly displayed in the U.S. Capitol for 132 years and now some New Jersey lawmakers think that’s plenty of time to honor a major general who fought in four wars and died on the battlefield in ...

The Jaffe Briefing - February 12, 2020

HAMILTON – So much for perfect attendance. The little kiddies at Yardville Elementary School who showed up every school day in January enjoyed a little “attenDance” last Wednesday – until angry parents messed up the whole thing. Maybe there will be no more little celebrations, as parents with kids who had a sick day blasted the school on social media, NJ ...

Gov. Murphy Unveils Ethics Reforms During Visit to Rutgers

February 20, 2020

NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ - Gov. Phil Murphy said he and his staff have been practically building a shrine around a fine bottle of bourbon he received as a gift.

Here's the sobering truth, though: Murphy and his fellow executive branch employees are exempt by state law from taking one drop, let alone accepting any gifts that are related to their public duties.

"We are in the process of ...

Park McArthur Inspires Young Artists as Rutgers' Tepper Chair

NEW BRUNSWICK, NJ - As a conceptual artist, Park McArthur lives where the philosophical meets the visual. She turns fleeting thoughts into tangible objects, imbues ephemeral notions with sturdy existence. She brings ideas to life.

As the newly named recipient of the Tepper Family Endowed Chair in Visual Arts, she’ll be doing much the same with students at Mason Gross School of the ...

Legendary Band Leader Paul Shaffer Tells Steve Adubato How He was Inspired by Comedy Icons Early in his Career

February 19, 2020

NEW JERSEY -- Paul Shaffer is widely known as the former Musical Director of both Late Night with David Letterman and The Late Show with David Letterman, during which he was often involved in skits and the general hijinx of the production. However, as Shaffer tells Steve Adubato, he wasn’t always comfortable being gregarious and, in fact, grew up being an introverted kid until a 1972 ...

The Ancient History of Valentine's Day

Valentine’s Day is widely known as the day of the year when love is celebrated, and indeed, February has been a month of romance for centuries. The St. Valentine’s Day we observe today evolved both from ancient Roman and early Christian history.

There are many legends about who St. Valentine was. One story dates from the third century A.D. Apparently, Emperor Claudius II of Rome ...
