BRONX NEWS: Federation Employment & Guidance Service closing its doors


One of the city’s largest nonprofits will be closing shop in the coming months, only weeks after an audit revealed it is million in the red.


Brass at the Federation for Employment and Guidance Services — FEGS — told staffers Thursday that they will find other providers to take over the multiple programs they operate on a contract basis for the city.


“FEGS is now working closely with its city and state government partners, and other stakeholders, to effect those transitions,” said the group’s spokeswoman, Julie Farber.


The historic organization operated on an annual budget of about 0 million, funded largely through city and state grants.


The charity was established 80 years back to help Jewish workers, but evolved into a mega-provider with 4,000 staffers who worked with as many as 12,000 disabled people and other job-seekers each day.


“It’s crazy,” said a source involved in the shutdown process. “It’s an absolute mess. It’s historic mismanagement.”

Kanye West Explains Why He’s Happy at adidas

kanye-happy-adidas-ellen-interview-00

Kanye West appeared on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today to debut his new Spike Jonze-directed music video for “Only One“, which features his daughter with Kim Kardashian, North. Seeming cool and collected, he talked about the positive changes and happiness he’s found in his life, one of which was his partnership with adidas. The iconic rapper said that the merger provided “a little bit of oxygen”, giving him more creative freedom to work on projects that he feels are close to his heart. He told Ellen, “There’s no amount of money people can give you to make you not be creative if you were born to create…a lot of times people try to block [your creativity], control you with money, and adidas allowed me to make my whole clothing line, which I wanted to do and it was like a little bit of oxygen”. The highly anticipated adidas Yeezi has been continuously pushed back but hearing news directly from West himself seems to give us a tiny ray of hope for seeing it sometime soon. You can watch the interview in its entirety over at ellentube. As a bonus, take a look below for a photo of Kanye, Justin Bieber and Sam Smith together with Ellen on her show.
