This is my most favorite drink. Ever. Maybe I’d feel differently if I drank (as in alcohol), but there is nothing I love more than a warm, breezy afternoon and a pitcher of Brazilian lemonade. I didn’t try it for a long, long time because I was very put off by putting sweetened condensed milk in with citrus fruit. It seemed very wrong. And then I had some at Tucano’s and my life has not been the same since. I’ve …

“We don’t like being the poster child for climate change,” said the Rev. Jennifer Slade, who added that the building, with its carved-wood sanctuary and soaring flood-insurance rates, would soon be on the market for the first time in four decades. “I don’t know many churches that have to put the tide chart on their Web site” so people know whether they can get to church.
Effects of climate change are visible every high tide, but federal help is hard to come by for costly fixes

“We’d rather rely on our natural immune system and our faith in God. This is about my children’s rights.”

But Judge William F. Kuntz II of the Federal District Court in Brooklyn disagreed with that argument, determining that the Supreme Court has “strongly suggested that religious objectors are not constitutionally exempt from vaccinations” and concluding that the city’s strict vaccine guidelines are in place to safeguard its residents’ well being.
