Author Reading | Joyce Mushaben discusses her book Becoming Madam Chancellor: Angela Merkel and the Transformation of United Germany


Despite the ostensible setback witnessed  during the 2017 Bundestag elections, the fact remains that over the last twelve years, Angela Merkel has redefined not only the way Germans see themselves but also the way that politicians world-wide perceive women in power. Lacking a strong state constituency and years of party socialization that usually propel someone to national power, this East German daughter of a Protestant pastor was forced to deploy her own life experiences to master the ins and out of “contentious democracy.”

Tour | Dyker Heights Christmas Lights Tour


When people think about holiday decorations in New York City, they usually think of the Rockefeller Center Christmas Tree and the lavish store window displays. But some of the best sights to be seen are actually in Dyker Heights, Brooklyn. Starting in the 1980’s, Christmas started getting bigger and brighter out in Brooklyn with each passing year. Expect to see massive, professionally- done light displays (some costing upwards of $20,000!). There is an unspoken competition among the home owners in the neighborhood, so some have added huge lawn ornaments and motorized displays, making for a lavish holiday spectacle. Dyker Heights has truly become a “must-see” for many people during the holidays.
