700 Million Good Reasons

Echoing Michael Bloomberg’s strategy of advocating for legislative changes that could unlock federal money, education advocates released this statewide ad, which says:

“Albany can still get the money from Washington by raising the cap on charter public schools and demanding greater accountability from teachers in the classroom.”

Here’s the script:

“When the teachers union stood in the way of common-sense education reforms, our public schools lost $700 million from the Obama administration — money we could have used to stop devastating budget cuts.
 
That’s just wrong.
 
But Albany can still get the money from Washington by raising the cap on charter public schools and demanding greater accountability from teachers in the classroom.
 
Albany should do what’s right.
 
There are 700 million good reasons why.”

Princess Olympia of Greece and Denmark 

The only daughter of Pavlos and Marie-Chantal, the Crown Prince and Princess of Greece, has quite the Instagram presence. Her posts include front row shots from NYFW, tacos with friends at La Esquina and soft serve at Cha Cha Matcha, all for her 98,000 followers. The Parsons School of Design student is also quite the jet-setter, spending time in New York, London, Los Angeles and Hong Kong (and that's just in the last month). She pulled the ultimate royal move and was rumored to have been dating her godfather's son, Prince Harry. She is his type: blonde and aristocratic, with a major penchant for hipster, Coachella-worthy ensembles, just like his ex Cressida Bonas. The 20-year-old princess counts Hollywood elite Sofia Richie and fellow royal (and cousin) Talita von Fürstenberg as pals. Unlike other New York City college students who celebrated their birthdays dancing on tables at Greek restaurants in the East Village, Princess Olympia spent hers in Mykonos, despite not speaking a word of Greek. Her mother worked for Andy Warhol before marrying into the royal family. Yes, her whole life is all very Gossip Girl.
