Stuff you may have missed: November 11, 2013

In a sad tale out of Brooklyn, two members of The Yellow Dogs (an Iran-borne indie rock band), along with a third person, were shot and killed by a former associate—who then killed himself.

A wildlife sanctuary employee who was killed by a wildcat told her mother that she was often working alone and feared for her safety.

Expectant Brooklyn couple killed in car crash, baby later dies
UPDATE: About 12 hours after we posted this, it was reported the young baby died, making this sad tale much sadder. The update below reflects the news as of last night.
Two lives end, one life begins: This story will make you very sad. Early Sunday morning, Nathan Glauber and Raizy Glauber, two expectant parents and newlyweds who lived in the Brooklyn neighborhood of Williamsburg, were rushing to the doctor’s office when the cab they were in was broadsided by a car. The 21-year-old parents both died in the crash; however, the child survived, and the baby boy was born prematurely. The couple, part of the Satmar Hasidic sect of Judaism, were buried later Sunday in the ceremony shown above. “It’s very hard for me,” said Yitzchok Silberstein, Raizy Glauber’s father. “But I have to say that whatever God does is right, even if I do not understand, he has a plan.” A real heartbreak of a tale. (photo by Robert Stolarik/The New York Times)

Smart Way To Help Those In Need After Sandy

evangotlib:

Some very creative folks started a wedding registry on Amazon.com for items desperately needed in Brooklyn.  One of the people behind this effort is a client of mine so I know for a fact this is 100% legit.

Please help them out…signal boost, buy something, whatever you can do.

This is smart. A very smart hack of Amazon.

Mindy Meyer: “I want to ultimately maybe one day run in the presidential elections.”

Web site or not, she doesn’t seem like she’s completely terrible at this. Note the way that she talks to potential constituents.
