NYC Mayor candidate Andrew Yang hit the AMC Empire in Times Square early Friday, buying evening tickets for Eddie Huang’s Boogie and talking to a small group of press as cinemas around the city opened for the first time since last March. “It’s a film set in New York and the filmmaker is Asian American and right now it seems like a time for us to be supporting Asia Americans. I also have a sense of just how difficult the film business is,” he said. “So supporting New York and an independent film that has very New York roots makes me very happy.” “I think the reopening of movie theaters is a very powerful sign that we can do things that we used to do pre-Covid,” said Yang, who also ran in the 2020 Democratic presidential primary. Yang volunteered that he’s a AMC Stubs member — the chain’s frequent moviegoer pass. “Few things gave me more pleasure and joy than getting free popcorn after seeing enough movies and racking up enough points.” Someone who’s not rushing to … [Read more...] about NYC Mayoral Candidate Andrew Yang Goes For ‘Boogie’ As City Theaters Reopen – “A Powerful Signal”

Bengaluru today is mostly a “work-in-progress” city. And work is on, simultaneous and slow (if not very slow). Literally no road worth its name is left un-dug. As one waits for the Smart City project to complete, it looks like we have to bear with an Idiot city first. To that extent, I do say that the generations that will follow us in this city will need to be grateful to this generation of yours and mine that has gone through it all, trudging our way through a city just being re-built for the future. right . To be a bigger and better … [Read more...] about Which city would you like to die in?

The city is seeking more private investment to build its metro lines (Photo: VNA) HCM City (VNS/VNA) – Ho Chi Minh City wants to attract more private investment instead of relying on official development assistance ( ODA ) to build its remaining metro lines, but experts have said that it faces a difficult challenge. Dr. Vu Anh Tuan, Director of Viet Duc Transport Research Centre, said the city was facing hurdles finding private investors for the metro lines. “Investors are hesitant because these metro projects are all done on a massive scale and require a huge amount of capital, while revenue from ticket sales is not enough to cover operating costs,” he said. Moreover, a lack of a legal framework on private-public partnership (PPP) investment in traffic and railway projects has added to the problem, according to Tuan. Dr. Huynh The Du, lecturer at Fulbright University, said it was important to … [Read more...] about HCM City seeks private investors for metro lines
