A New York City firefighter has been moonlighting as a stuntman — while also raking in a 6,684-a-year disability pension, according to court documents. The FDNY ’s practice of awarding of three-quarter disability pensions has been a simmering issue over the years. The Post reported a decade ago about a firefighter who obtained a disability pension for a respiratory illness — then went on to compete in triathlons. McGinty’s double life — retired disabled firefighter and vigorous stuntman — might have remained a secret except that he sued his next-door neighbor in the Rockaways for defamation and

The narrative of Belarus is consistent with US efforts to recast the new Cold War as a rivalry between liberal democracies and authoritarian states. After the Cold War, it was expected that countries striving towards democracy would naturally align themselves with the liberal democratic West, which, informed by its values, would act as a “force for good.” Instead, the conflating of democratization with Western alignment is now at the center of an ideological project that fuels the new Cold War.

Nearly 200 people, who have been arrested by police in five of Australia’s seven states since September, are to blame for many of these killer blazes, while the tinder-dry undergrowth and long-term drought have created the perfect conditions which allow the fires to rage. As a journalist in rural Victoria earlier Incidentally, in November a volunteer firefighter was arrested and charged with seven counts of arson in one Australian state, just as this fire season started. So maybe there was more truth to that claim than we thought. But troubled souls in that profession are just a small part of what is actually a

According to Starchefs.com, the 2017 Food & Wine Sommelier of the Year recipient got his start in hospitality working in a restaurant while studying at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. While studying abroad in Paris his senior year, Ganzer told the outlet he began learning about wine—which spurred a passion that prompted him to move to New York City after graduation.

Ganzer has worked as a sommelier at several major New York City hotspots, including Eleven Madison Park and Boulud. In 2016, however, Ganzer told the outlet he jumped at the chance to take over the New York outpost of Compagnie des Vins Surnaturels. That same year, he was awarded the “Best New Sommelier of 2016” award from Wine & Spirit Magazine.

Two years later, Ganzer even launched VKNOW, an app to help the public learn about wine. During the pandemic, Ganzer also became the chief marketing officer of Berkshires Direct Shop, a local vegetable delivery service.

NY sommelier charged with setting outdoor dining sheds ablaze

  NY sommelier charged with setting outdoor dining sheds ablaze A renowned New York City sommelier has been charged with setting fire to outdoor dining sheds of rival restaurants, authorities said. Caleb Ganzer, 35, was caught on CCTV lighting the wooden structures of two restaurants in separate incidents in January and July, according to the New York Fire Department. The sheds -- the sort of which have popped up across the streets of the Big Apple during the pandemic -- were damaged but no one was injured, the FDNY added.Ganzer was also filmed apparently setting fire to a pile of rubbish in June. All three incidents took place between around midnight and 4:30 am.

"Unfortunately, those trends have now reversed, and we are in the early stages of a third wave." Ghebreyesus lamented that lack of access to vaccines has left most of the world's population susceptible to infection and "at the mercy of the virus." Most don't have enough. "We continue to see a shocking disparity in the global distribution of vaccines and unequal access to life-saving tools," Ghebreyesus said. "This inequity has created a two-track pandemic." The scale of the COVAX vaccine-distribution initiative remains far too small, with just over 100 million doses shipped, Ghebreyesus said.

You have been here a great many years and I think you've fulfilled your duties quite satisfactorily here; but I found out a most striking thing the other day. I discovered to my astonishment that you could neither read nor write. I think you must learn, Foreman." But when he had closed the door of the church behind him his lips trembled. He walked slowly with a heavy heart. He didn't know what to do with himself. True, he had saved a small sum of money but it was not enough to live on without doing something, and life cost more and more every year.

Last January, Ganzer made local headlines after registering with the Federal Election Commission to be a write-in candidate in the race for President of the United States. “It's actually surprisingly easy, you just have to fill something out online,” Ganzer told WCBS 880. “I've been thinking about this ever since I was in third grade.”

But authorities allege that since New York City has re-opened, Ganzer has been doing much more than trying to help the people of New York—and his wine bar.

Authorities say Ganzer was originally arrested for a July 13 fire, which was set at around 2:55 a.m. in the outdoor dining structure owned by Prince Street Pizza in lower Manhattan.

Surveillance footage of the incident obtained by The Daily Beast shows a man wearing shorts, a long jacket, and a backpack walking up to the wooden pavilion of the beloved pizza establishment and setting it on fire with what appears to be a small lighter. He then walks to the other side of the structure and lights it on fire again before simply walking away, according to the video.

Photographs of the structure after the fire show the wood heavily charred, and its plexiglass on the back wall bent from the flame.

After a thorough investigation, FDNY said marshals established the fire set at Prince Street Pizza revealed the same pattern as the two blazes they put out earlier this year. Those incidents include a Jan. 8 fire that was set in the outside dining structure owned by Forsythia Restaurant, and a trash fire set on June 26 near SoHo.

Ganzer’s case will be prosecuted by the Manhattan District Attorney’s Office, which declined to comment on the case until he is arraigned in criminal court.

“Every act of arson has the potential to spread rapidly, endangering the lives of New Yorkers and FDNY members,” Fire Commissioner Daniel A. Nigro said in a statement. “Thankfully in these incidents, there were no injuries and the suspect has been apprehended before another fire could be set.”
