TBT - -The Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation (MMRF) is deeply saddened by the loss of Geraldine Ferraro (1935-2011), a Member of the MMRF Honorary Board of Directors and a dear friend. Ferraro passed away this morning from complications following a long and courageous battle with multiple myeloma, an incurable blood cancer.
"Geraldine Ferraro was a true trailblazer, an inspiration to many, an incredible advocate for cancer research, and a very dear friend. She will be sadly missed, never far from our hearts, and fondly remembered for her incredible legacy and the extraordinary woman who she was. We pray that her family finds comfort and peace during this sorrowful time," said Kathy Giusti, Founder and CEO of the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation, and a patient with multiple myeloma.
In addition to serving on the MMRF's Honorary Board of Directors, Ferraro was actively involved in the Foundation's work to bring new treatments to patients. In 2002, she passionately testified before Congress for the critical need for increased research funding, and a year later, a bill was signed authorizing $250 million for blood cancer research. Congress then appropriated $5 million to the Geraldine Ferraro Blood Cancer Education Program in 2003 and renewed funding in 2006, enabling the MMRF to provide high-quality educational programs to underserved populations.

TBT - Cherry Blossom Festival 2011 Dedicated to Japan, Essex County Executive Joseph DiVincenzo, Jr., together with the Board of Chosen Freeholders and the Branch Brook Park Alliance, announced Thursday the line-up of activities for the 35th Annual Cherry Blossom Festival.
DiVincenzo spoke Thursday at the Cherry Blossom Visitor's Center at the park, which is located in Belleville and Newark.
"Branch Brook Park has been put on the map with its 4,300 cherry blossom trees, the largest collection in the world," said Essex County Parks Director Dan Salvante. "Once again, we're here to celebrate the beauty of the cherry blossoms in this park."
Thousands of visitors from throughout the area and around the world converge on the park every April to see the first reddish-white flowers bloom on the trees. Essex County has long sponsored events to coincide with the start of the season. The festival is a point of pride for Belleville, which identifies itself as the "Cherry Blossom Capital of America."
Salvante announced the festival's lineup of events, which kicks off on April 4 with the Cherry Blossom Gala hosted by the BBPA at Nanina's in the Park in Belleville.
Other activities include a bike race on April 9, from 7 a.m. to 1 p.m. and a 1-mile "Fun Run" and 10K run April 10, beginning at 8 a.m.
There's also a Bagel and Blossom Lecture Series from April 11 to 15 at 8:15 every morning, at the Visitors Center.
"On your way to work you can come here, get a bagel and learn more about the park," said Salvante.
Also during noontime from April 12 to 14, Trolley Tours with a guided tour will be available throughout the park.
Then on April 16, there will be a photography workshop from 9 am to 1 pm.
The Cherry Blossom Festival culminates on April 17 with Bloomfest happening from 11 am to 5 pm, and featuring cultural demonstrations, children's activities, live music, a crafter's marketplace, food and other activities for the whole family to enjoy.
"It's a great day to be out in the park," said Salvante.
David Norton, representative of the Aetna insurance company, which is recognized as the premiere sponsor of the park's family-friendly festival for the second year, expressed the company's zeal in being part of this endeavor "to be able to support the community and help preserve a very important asset like the park, and so help with improving the health and well-being of the citizens." According to Norton, "supporting the county is very important to us and we look forward to doing that in the years to come."
Also present in the press conference was BBPA Executive Director James Lecky, who thanked the county executive "for providing the leadership which has made our partnership so worthwhile. I really can't express enough how important this has been, not only to our organization, to the county, but to every citizen of that county, to have a world-class park, a world-class collection of cherry blossom trees in our backyard," said Lecky. "I think it's an asset of the community to have 4,300 trees planted last year. It's only going to get better over time, to see these trees grow, to watch this process happen. This would not have been possible without the vision and leadership of the county executive director and the board of freeholders who've been incredible partners in supporting our work."
Essex County Sherriff Armando Fontoura was also there to talk about the park, in which he proudly said, "This is one of the safest parks in the state of New Jersey."
Board of Chosen Freeholders Vice President Ralph Caputo also expressed, "Because of the safety and the beauty that has taken place with all the cooperative efforts, I think if anything led to a renaissance in this county, it's through the park system."
"The cherry blossom tree is symbolic of our partnership with Japan," said Anibal Ramos, a Newark councilman. "In light of the recent tragedy that took place there, this year we have a lot to celebrate and remember." He also added, "The Cherry Blossom Festival does a lot for this community in terms of attracting visitors and promoting our local businesses, and for this we'd like to thank Joe for his leadership as well as the Board of Chosen Freeholders."
"The cherry blossoms at Branch Brook Park has truly become a destination," said DiVincenzo. "So they not only talk about the cherry blossoms in Washington D.C., now they talk about the Essex County Branch Brook Park.
"We're dedicating this festival to the people of Japan. These cherry blossoms originated from Japan so we wanted to be able to raise money for them and give back."
Fifty percent of the proceeds generated from the Cherry Blossom Festival lapel pins will be donated to the Red Cross for Japan. The pins cost $5 each and will be sold at the Essex County Cherry Blossom Welcome Center during the first two weeks of April and throughout all festival events. Donations will also be received by the Center for the benefit of the people of Japan.
For more information about the festival events and how to make a donation, visit branchbrookpark.org. [via - bloomfield]

TBT - Aren't you curious on what's gonna happen in Toriko 135? Since there will be no release of this great manga series this week, I bet everyone is eager to know the continuation of the story in Toriko Chapter 135. The scheduled release of this chapter will be on April 1, 2011. Let's just hope that nothing bad happens that will cause another delay. In the meantime, let me give you a brief recap of the previous chapter. Toriko and Zebra ate the three headed unicorn. Though the meat is not as good as chicken, it is a great help for them to regain their strength. When both of them are done, they set foot and found their way inside the pyramid to search for Komatsu. Read on to know more about the highlights of the previous chapter.
I can't imagine how much calories the two uses even if they are just relaxing. The amount of calories they use is 10 times the amount of a normal person uses. Now imagine how much more calories they use when they are in fighting mode. Well, to continue with Toriko chapter 135, Komatsu was wondering inside the pyramid when he encountered the Escargot. A monstrous creature which was regarded as the Mollusk Beast. Fear crawled over his body but somehow, he remember the words of Zebra to him that he is the cook and his enemies are just ingredients. He then took his Melk Knife and began to concentrate to channel his strength to it. With a single slash, the floor was crushed sending Komatsu and the beast under. Meanwhile, Toriko and Zebra were blocked by numerous creatures called Dangoal. They are slug like creatures which is also know as Shell Beasts.
Know more about Toriko 135 by reading it online on the scheduled date of release. Be one of the first to know the story and get the advantage over those who read it last. I suggest that you participate in the discussion of this manga chapter to make it more interesting.

Mega Millions lottery game's jackpot had soared to $312 million after no one won the grand prize in Tuesday night's drawing.
Despite the long odds of winnings, sales of the Mega Millions tickets were brisk in Salem County Friday as the evening drawing drew time drew closer.
The multi-state lottery game is played in New Jersey and numerous other states around the nation.
Players may pick six numbers from two separate pools of numbers — five different numbers from 1 to 56 and one number from 1 to 46 — or allow the machine to pick your numbers. You win the jackpot by matching all six winning numbers in a drawing.
Besides the jackpot, there are several smaller prizes for those who pick many, but not all of the winning numbers.
A player can choose to take their winnings over 26 year payments or they can choose to take a lump sum payment. If the jackpot is approximately $312 million, a lump sum payment would be approximately $198 million.
Mega Millions tickets cost $1 per play.
This jackpot has been growing since February 1, when the Mega Millions jackpot was last won. The jackpot has now rolled 14 times without a winner. The odds of winning the jackpot are approximately one in 176 million. The odds of winning any of the Mega Millions prizes are approximately 1 in 40.
Mega Millions has awarded 110 jackpots since the first drawing on May 17, 2002. In that time, more than 21.88 billion tickets have been sold nationwide. Each participating state determines how its Mega Millions profits are spent. In many states, profits are earmarked for education. The beneficiaries in other states include parks, natural resources, property tax relief, programs to help the elderly and several other important causes.
Mega Millions is currently played in 43 jurisdictions (41 states plus the District of Columbia and the U. S. Virgin Islands). Drawings are held Tuesdays and Fridays at 11 p.m. [via - nj]

TBT - With just the click of a button, you have access to a world of electronic info. You literally have the world at your fingertips. Yes, I am talking about the internet. It is not only a great time-saver, it's also very convenient. Paying your bills, looking up info for your children's school projects, searching for property to purchase, looking for insurance quotes; the list is endless. And not only has it transformed the lives of many people across the world, it has also transformed the way in which businesses do business. Everything is done online these days: no more filing, no more physical documents; everything is captured digitally, making our lives and jobs so much simpler.
Take new car insurance quotes as an example. We're able to basically, in the comfort of our own homes or offices, log onto the web and simply search a couple of key phrases to find competitive insurance rates. There is a vast pool of internet sites available online that will help you to locate competitive insurance quotes. These websites will often request you to fill out an application form online that could contain a lot of personal information about you. Once you have completed the form and given them the required info, the website is going to take some time to create and average insurance premium estimate based on the information provided.
One you have received an estimate for new car insurance from a number of different companies, you may compare them with each other and make a decision on which policy to purchase. Nonetheless, keep in mind that you need to consider not just the premium rate estimated on the quotes. The cheapest isn't always the best choice; you need to think about what you are getting in return for the monthly premium you will be paying. Moreover, you may need to make sure that you're neither under- nor over-insured, as this could cost you dearly later on or may cost you a lot of money unnecessarily spent.
Finding new car insurance quotes is much easier for those who have access to the internet; it can save you both money and valuable time. [via - goarticles]
