Ultra-Orthodox Rage Over Fresh COVID-19 Clampdown in New York

Hours before a new coronavirus crackdown began in New York, Borough Park was fuming.On Monday, Gov. Andrew Cuomo ordered public and private schools to close in 20 New York City zip codes where positivity rates had spiked in recent weeks, most of them home to substantial ultra-Orthodox Jewish communities. Anger was already palpable that afternoon on the streets of one of the hottest hotspots citywide, a traditional home of New York’s Hasidic population.“It’s just political theater,” raged Mike Weber, whose teenaged sons attend the Nesivos Hatalmud yeshiva, standing maskless outside the facility on the neighborhood’s north end. “I’m not concerned about corona, I’m concerned about the kids.”Religious learning institutions, which the broad majority of students in the impacted precincts attend, were actually closed already for the Jewish holiday of Sukkot, which ends on Friday. But nearly every yeshiva in Borough Park featured an attached sukkah—a temporary enclosure, somewhere between a tent and a hut—from which largely mask-less men and boys streamed in and out all afternoon.The governor’s order on Monday left such places of worship untouched—only for him to decree on Tuesday that they could only accommodate up to 10 people at a time.Are ‘Outside Forces’ to Blame in NYC’s Hottest COVID Zone?Even community leaders who agreed with the decision to shut down yeshivas and take other pandemic containment measures in the world’s former coronavirus epicenter decried the incessant mixed and conflicting messages from Cuomo and Mayor Bill de Blasio. The governor’s Monday order came a day after the mayor called for closing not just schools but local businesses, and to begin that program not Tuesday but on Wednesday. Cuomo’s initial order this week pertained only to schools, only for him to relent Tuesday and instruct non-essential businesses

Cooking up a great hack! Man’s VERY simple hack for avoiding liquid drips in the kitchen goes viral

  • TikTok user Andrew Gatt shared the trick on the video-sharing app last week 
  • After pouring the eggs into the pan, he demonstrates how to put the bowl back on the counter without any of the leftover egg dripping down the sides 
  • Instead of simply righting it, he turns it all the way upside down and rights it on the opposite side, so the egg drips back into the bowl
  • The video has been viewed 1.7 million times so far 

Amateur home cooks who are tired of kitchen messes may be relieved to learn a seriously simple kitchen hack that keeps leftover liquid from spilling onto the counter.

TikTok user Andrew Gatt shared the trick on the video-sharing app last week while frying up some scrambled eggs on the stove.

After pouring the eggs into the pan, he demonstrated how to put the used bowl back down on the counter without any of the leftover egg dripping down the sides.

'If I pour this egg into this pan and turn it back this way,' he says, gesturing to indicate turning the bowl back upwards in an expected way, 'and put it down on the counter, it's gonna drip down the side'

Andrew’s video focuses in on the stove, and as it begins, he is finishing pouring a bowl of beaten eggs into a skillet.

But before he puts the empty bowl — which just has a bit of raw egg still clinging to it — back on the counter, he pauses to narrate.

TikTok hack claims to prevent kitchen food spills, goes viral

Picture this: Your counter sticky with spilled food. Your dishes caked with drippy residue. Somewhere, an infomercial of your plight plays.

Well, you’ll no longer have to struggle with these issues when cooking, thanks to a TikTok video which extolls the virtues of basic physics in the kitchen.

TikTok user Andrew Gatt has recently gone viral with a video demonstrating how home cooks can avoid kitchen spills after pouring food into another vessel.

To demonstrate the pouring pitfalls, Gatt showed himself pouring scrambled eggs from a bowl into a skillet. He then points to the runoff spilling over the lip of the bowl, which continues to drip.

Gatt, who tipped the bowl to his left, explains if he tips it back to the right — as most people normally would when pouring — “it’s going to drip” on his counter.

However! In a moment of brilliance, Gatt continues turning the bowl to the left, allowing physics to kick in, and the drippings to fall back into the bowl — and not on the counter, or whatever surface is below.

“How old were you when you learned this life hack?” Gatt writes on the video.

The video has been viewed more than 1.2 million times and has nearly 50,000 likes from, assuming, eager kitchen novices.
