NEW YORK — In New York City’s forest of tall buildings, having a view is an inestimable commodity, to be treasured and, when necessary, fought over. There have been pitched battles over Brooklyn Bridge vistas blocked by waterside apartments, and the shadows cast by billionaires’ apartment towers over Central Park. But when the residents of a 12-story loft building in Chelsea learned that a proposed tower next door threatened to darken most of their windows and block their Empire State Building views, they tried a less confrontational approach. They banded together to make the developer an unusual offer: $11 million not to build. The gambit captured the kind of wealth that now courses through New York City, where residents of a former warehouse building — with full-floor apartments that stretch 5,600 square feet, twice the size of an average new American home — were willing to pay a hefty price just to protect a view. The owners used a typical developer … [Read more...] about How much to fight a Manhattan photobomber? Try $11 million
Drinking enough water every day is something often overlooked because of how basic it is. While there is popular opinion that eight glasses of water daily is optimal, it seems excessive to most people, with the total amount reaching nearly 2 liters. Earlier this year, experts revealed that the commonly mentioned amount is misleading. "Fluid requirements vary among individuals based on age, sex, activity level and even where you live," said Jessica Fishman Levinson, founder of nutrition counseling company Nutritioulicious, as quoted by MSN. These factors can include daily activities and influence how much water you need every day. In general, The Institute of Medicine recommends that women drink 2.7 liters of water per day, although such large amounts are certainly not mandatory.

By Christine Sismondo Special to the Star Sun., May 12, 2019 Does the world need another energy drink? Several entrepreneurs seem to think so, despite the fact that a search on Amazon for the word “protein” turns up some 40,000 shakes, powders, cookies, protein-enhanced foods, power bars and supplements. And, as of 9 a.m. on May 16, when Toronto innovators Amar Gupta and Josh Barr launch brüst, a low-sugar, cold-brew coffee enhanced with grass-fed protein, it’ll be some 40,001. That momentous event will happen at the DROP Boxing studio (161 Spadina Ave.). Why do we need brüst? According to Gupta and Barr, it’s an alternative to the energy and protein drinks they encountered when training for their competitions — squash and Ironman distance triathlons, respectively — which they felt were all too sugary, chalky-tasting, or pricey. This confirms all the worst fears of a person (me) who has never had a protein drink or, … [Read more...] about Do you need a protein bar?
MANILA – She is one of the Philippines’ fastest rising vloggers. And one could not help but wonder how much Alex Gonzaga earns from her YouTube videos, each having millions of views. Lucky for those who are curious, TV host Boy Abunda asked this burning question during his show, “Inside the Cinema,” where Gonzaga appeared as a guest alongside her sister Toni and fellow influencer Bianca Gonzalez. “How much can an influencer earn?” he asked. Gonzaga did not immediately answer the question as she first opted to explain how earning from YouTube works. She noted that English-speaking vloggers with an international audience are “Google-preferred” and have the potential of earning more than someone like her, who churns out videos in Filipino. “When you have an international audience… ang one American audience is equivalent to four Filipinos, one is to four,” Gonzaga explained. “So ‘yung cpm (cost per mille)… … [Read more...] about News WATCH: How much does Alex Gonzaga earn as a vlogger?
