Nike Air Force 1 Low “Hong Kong” // Another Look

Originally released back in 2001 as one of the most impressive releases in the B series, the Nike Air Force 1 Low “Hong Kong” is seen in greater detail today ahead of its triumphant return 17 years in the making.

After a resurgence at the close of 2016, Nike continues to push the Air Force 1 by reviving many of its most coveted and underrated gems. The B Series is not known by many largely because it released during such a widely populated moment in sneakers just after the turn of the century. Moreover, much of the offering was available exclusively overseas, therefore not obtainable for many.

But now time-honored pairs like the Nike Air Force 1 Low “Hong Kong” are releasing globally, and you can pick up them up tomorrow, March 22, at select retailers like Sneaker Politics.

BRONX NEWS: Guinea pigs need home after turning up at hero soldier’s funeral


Two guinea pigs that mysteriously appeared on the steps of a Bronx church during the funeral for a soldier who died saving four people from a deadly fire need a new home.


Animal rescuer Marie Palladino is trying to find a home for the two critters, left behind in a cat carrier on the steps of during the funeral at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Catholic Church for Emmanuel Mensah.


“There they were, the two little babies in a cat carrier,” said Palladino. “They’re adorable.”


Timothy Cardinal Dolan officiated the packed funeral for Mensah, 28, lauding him for demonstrating “the most noble calling of the human person, to give ourselves in sacrifice and love to others.”

Soldier who saved 4 in Bronx fire celebrated as hero at funeral


The immigrant from Ghana was among the 13 people killed by the fast-moving inferno that engulfed the five-story building Dec. 28, the city’s deadliest fire in more than a quarter-century.


The young soldier was home for the holidays when the blaze broke out on the first floor. He raced in and out of the burning building at least three times — carrying his neighbors to safety. He was found dead on the fourth floor, overcome by smoke.


Some funeral goers speculated the mystery pets belonged to Mensah.


The soldier’s father and roommate both said they don’t believe the animals were his. But grieving dad Kwabena Mensah said his son was an avid animal lover.

“It doesn’t bother me that people want to take care of them in my son’s name,” the grieving dad said. “I know he would have appreciated that.”


Palladino has recruited the Animal Care Centers of NYC and the Sean Casey Animal Shelter in Brooklyn to help search for a new home for the guinea pigs, one jet black, the other brown and white. She named them Thelma and Louise.


“At first they were very scared but now they are used to me,” Palladino, 68, said. “They squeak when they want to eat.”


“Maybe they didn’t know what to do with them,” Palladino said of whoever left the pets there. “Maybe they thought they would be safe with God.”

Soldier who died in Bronx fire to be honored at State of the City


Before his funeral, Mensah posthumously received the New York State Medal of Valor and the Soldier’s Medal, which is the Army’s highest award for noncombat bravery. Both awards were buried with him.


Anyone interested in adopting Thelma and Louise can reach out to Animal Care Centers of NYC at www.nycacc.org or the Sean Casey Animal Rescue at (718) 436-5163.

BRONX NEWS: Manhole explosions torch two cars in the Bronx


A trio of manhole explosions burned two cars in the Bronx Tuesday, and Con Edison officials say melting snow mixed with road salt may be to blame.


The manholes erupted at about 1:30 p.m., on Davidson Ave. near W. 183rd St. in Fordham Heights, the FDNY said.


No one was injured by the flames, but two vehicles were torched, firefighters said.


The blasts also knocked out power to 86 of the utility’s customers, who are expected to see their electricity return by 6 a.m. Wednesday, Con Ed spokesman Sidney Alvarez said.


Melted snow mixed with salt can often drain into the city’s manholes during winter months, and the salt water can spark built-up gases when it comes into contact with electrical cables, the utility maintains.


Con Ed workers are still investigating whether that’s what happened to cause Tuesday’s blasts, Alvarez said.

BRONX NEWS: School was warned about dangerous student years before stabbing


A mother warned administrators at a troubled Bronx school that her son was hiding knives in his backpack — and had been “pulling knives on his family” — three years before he was charged in the fatal stabbing of a classmate, the Daily News has learned.


Months after the Sept. 27, 2017, stabbing death of Matthew McCree, 15, allegedly by Abel Cedeno, 18, at the Urban Assembly School for Wildlife Conservation, the victim’s mom, Louna Dennis, says she was anonymously leaked a memo about a voicemail from Cedeno’s mother, Luz Hernandez.


Dennis read the May 28, 2014 memo — which Cedeno’s lawyers said was presented at his grand jury — to The News.


“This morning I received a voicemail message from Abel Cedeno’s mother informing me that she discovered a knife in Abel’s backpack,” then-school dean Justin Keating wrote, according to the memo.

Video may refute self-defense claim in Bronx school stabbing


“She informed me that he has been bringing knives to school. The voicemail was out of concern for our students and staff safety because he has a history of pulling knives on his family. This is an issue that needs to be addressed immediately.”


Dennis was outraged to learn the school had gotten a warning about the potential dangers, and that her son wasn’t saved.


“The school failed my son and my family one hundred percent — big time,” said Dennis.


Dennis’s lawyer, Sanford Rubenstein, said the memo “shows that the school and the Department of Education was on notice and knew a danger existed” at the school long before Matthew was stabbed to death.

Bronx school where student was stabbed to death to be shut down


Rubenstein has filed a notice of claim against the DOE and NYPD for failing to protect the students by not installing metal detectors despite two incidents involving weapons at the school.


In the September bloodshed, a cell phone video showed Cedeno charging into a classroom, armed with a switchblade knife, and stabbing McCree in the stomach.


Cedeno told authorities he was bullied by other students over his sexuality and snapped when McCree hit him with a pencil and threw a paper ball at him.


Toya Holness, a spokeswoman from the DOE, declined to comment, but said, “The safety of students and staff is our top priority and we have provided the school with additional safety supports (last school year and after the tragedy).”

Bronx school stabber’s lawyer blames victims: ‘He was pummeled’


A Bronx grand jury, which declined to indict Cedeno for murder, charged him with manslaughter, assault and weapons charges. He has pleaded not guilty and was released from Rikers Island on 0,000 bond.


Cedeno’s lawyers, Robert Feldman and Christopher Lynn, railed about the leaked memo, saying it shows Keating’s negligence and is a “distraction” from the criminal case.


“(Cedeno) swore under oath that he was going to get raped and told the dean and the dean ignored it,” Lynn said. “He was told to buck it up and be a man, he was only 14-years-old.”


The lawyer said the mother’s reference to a knife in her son’s backpack in 2014 was a butter knife.

Lynn also questioned how grand jury evidence ended up “floating around.”


Repeated calls to Hernandez for comment were not returned.


Since the violence, dozens of students have transferred out, the principal was reassigned and the school is on a list of those slated to close.
