Live Healthy and Move

NJ Sharing Network, the non-profit, federally designated organ procurement organization responsible for the recovery of organs and tissue in the state, will host Live Healthy and Move event in Newark’s Military Park this Saturday, August 17 as a part of its new initiative, #DonationNeedsDiversity, to empower multicultural communities to become more involved in saving and healing lives through organ and tissue donation.

The #DonationNeedsDiversity initiative honors the generosity of multicultural donors and their families while also highlighting the critical need for people from diverse communities – such as Newark – to register as organ and tissue donors.  The effort will also promote healthful living and disease prevention to decrease the need for transplantation.  For example, the need for transplant in some ethnic groups is increased because of high incidences of high blood pressure or diabetes, both of which can lead to the need for a kidney transplant.

Activities at Live Healthy and Move will include:  music, Zumba, fitness obstacle course, games, rides, meditation, health screenings (blood pressure, glucose, AIDS) and giveaways.  In addition, representatives will be on-hand to provide health eating tips, information on hospital resources, information on organ donation and transplant, etc.

Where Do We Start the Larger Conversation About Guns?

Let's talk about our rights and our freedoms.

How many were free to shop at a Wal-Mart last two Sundays ago without fear that El Paso copycat would announce himself with the staccato fire of an AR-15?

You saw the stampede in the theater district in New York City when a motorcycle backfired. And the evacuation of a Wal-Mart in Union because of a false report.

We may have freedoms, but ...

Rolling Stones in the Meadowlands: NJ TRANSIT Got It Right – Again!

NJ TRANSIT got it right – Again – during both of the Rolling Stones concerts held in the Meadowlands this month. Kudos to the agency and to the Governor’s office for stepping up again to find solutions to a very difficult situation.

When the Agency gets it right – it’s expected, and no one applauds. Of course, when issues occur, the Agency is challenged and too ...

August 18, 2019

Give the sweet summer watermelon a whole new flavor profile with chile lime salt.

The lime adds brightness and the chile gives the fruit it a savory kick. But don't underestimate the importance of salt in the combo.

“Growing up, my dad, brother and I ...

Newark’s Water Crisis is As Much about Lack of Vision and Courage As It Is About Mismanagement and Malfeasance

August 19, 2019

Everyone knows it has always been a coveted desire to privatize Newark’s Water Department. The money such an agency would generate would be massive and would invite corruption. If you don’t believe me just look at what happened under the Newark Watershed Conservation and Development Corporation.

In 2013, an investigation by a State Comptroller revealed that there was ramped ...

The Jaffe Briefing - August 19, 2019

DOWN THE SHORE – The New York Times has this all-too-common move when it comes to its aloof coverage of New Jersey. It swoops in on an over-reported trend story, and writes it like it is the first time any of us heard about such “news.” Apparently, nothing happens officially in New Jersey until The New York Times deems it so. Anyway, why this rant? The newspaper of record ...
