New York Botanical Gardens (Orchid Show) - March 16, 2024

Established in 1891, The New York Botanical Garden (NYBG) is distinguished by the beauty of its landscape, collections, and gardens, and the scope and excellence of its programs in horticulture, education, and science. NYBG was inspired by an 1888 visit that eminent botanists Nathaniel Lord Britton and his wife, Elizabeth, took to the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew, near London. The Brittons believed New York should have a great botanical garden to advance public understanding of plants, be a repository of rare and valuable specimens, and lead original research in botanical science.

Today, the 250-acre Garden—the largest in any city in the United States—is a National Historic Landmark. In addition to the natural attributes that attracted the Brittons, NYBG encompasses 50 specialty gardens and collections comprising more than one million plants, the Nolen Greenhouses for Living Collections, and the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory, the nation’s preeminent Victorian-style glasshouse. Highlights include the award-winning Peggy Rockefeller Rose Garden, considered among the world’s most sustainable rose gardens; the Native Plant Garden, celebrating the diversity of northeastern North American plants; and 30,000 distinguished trees, many more than 200 years old. More than one million visitors annually enjoy the grounds, view innovative exhibitions, and participate in educational programs that are larger and more diverse than those of any other garden in the world.

Bronx Zoo - May 5, 2024

The Bronx Zoo, the Wildlife Conservation Society’s flagship park, opened on November 8, 1899. Since then, the zoo has created a unique window into the natural world for city dwellers in the heart of the Bronx - and serves as a springboard and hub for conservation efforts across the entire planet.

The animals and exhibits at the Bronx Zoo span the globe and include tiny toads from Tanzania and big cats from the Russian Far East. With more than 700 species, the zoo is the perfect place to inspire animal lovers of all ages. Part of their mission is to connect visitors to wildlife and inspire them to join our conservation work. Scientists at the Bronx Zoo, and the Wildlife Conservation Society's four other zoos and aquarium, are working to protect the future of all species and the places they call home. Much of this work has recently been featured on the Animal Planet docuseries, THE ZOO, which has provided behind-the-scenes looks into their work like never before.

Through the Wildlife Conservation Society’s five parks, we are able to connect over 4 million visitors a year to impactful messaging on science, nature, and conservation. Across these facilities, we care for more than 17,000 mammals, birds, fish, reptiles, amphibians, and invertebrates. With a leading role in the Association of Zoos and Aquariums (AZA), WCS sets the standard for animal care, zoological medicine, wildlife conservation, and innovative, naturalistic exhibits.

Statue of Liberty & Ellis Island - June 2, 2024

Liberty enlightening the world.

"The Statue of Liberty Enlightening the World" was a gift of friendship from the people of France to the United States and is recognized as a universal symbol of freedom and democracy. The Statue of Liberty was dedicated on October 28, 1886.  It was designated as a National Monument in 1924.  Employees of the National Park Service have been caring for the colossal copper statue since 1933.

In May of 2019, Lady Liberty’s legacy expanded with the opening of the Statue of Liberty Museum. Housed within the Statue of Liberty Museum are three interactive galleries that tell the statue's history in thought-provoking ways. Each gallery is designed to inspire visitors. The museum replaced a small exhibition inside the pedestal of the Statue of Liberty and allows millions of visitors to enjoy the Statue of Liberty experience and be inspired by the iconic statue.

Veteran Travel Host Samantha Brown Says 'I'm in Charge of Who I Am' After Leaving the Travel Channel

Now the host of Samantha Brown's Places to Love on PBS, the travel expert tells PEOPLE she's taking the reins of her career

travel by brown

Everything about Samantha Brown 's career is "totally unexpected," she says.

After 23 years as a travel host and with 74 countries visited under her belt, Brown gets candid with PEOPLE about how she found herself globe-trotting professionally — and why it wasn't until she found her latest gig, that she felt she was truly doing it on her own terms.

"It was something that I never thought would come my way, but I fell in love with travel," she tells PEOPLE.

Now the host of Samantha Brown's Places to Love (currently airing its sixth season on PBS), the 52-year-old New Hampshire native is taking the reins of her career after fifteen years at the Travel Channel, where she got her start.

She's now the co-owner of her own production company with her husband Kevin O'Leary and the show-runner of her own series. Having more autonomy professionally, she says, feels "amazing" and "changes everything."

"I am in charge of who I am. I have all control over the show," she says of her PBS gig, which launched in 2018. "Before, with the Travel Channel , I was a hired host, and so I had no say in the editing. I had no say in what we did, where we went. And that's fine, I signed up for that. But now it's all what I want to do and all my approach to travel."

Brown adds that she now "owns every inch of footage, and that's what's amazing to me." Now that she's not just "talent," she also jokes that "no one gets me coffee" as she's the coffee fetcher for her crew. "I absolutely love it. My schedule is my own. It's been worth the hard work," she says.

On her passion project, Places to Love , Brown explores new cities through a people-centric lens. And despite attending musical theater school and waitressing in New York City for years, Brown surprisingly never realized how much of a "people person" she was until she broke bread with strangers all around the world.

"Travel really isn't about where I go, it's about who I connect with and who I meet and just understanding how special people are," says Brown. "I always thought that travel was about seeing things and seeing museums and castles and monuments, and what I realized is that just always puts you in the past. I realized with travel, I don't want to be in the past. I want to be now. What's happening now?"

She adds: "That's something that I always work to show in Places to Love . And if we do anything that's historically important, 'Well, what does that mean for the people here, now?'"

Perhaps one of the biggest moments to rock her career was becoming a mom to now 10-year-old twins, Elizabeth and Ellis, who already have an impressive collection of passport stamps, including China, Korea and 10 countries in Europe.

Brown admits she once thought having kids was going to end her career — and being away from them when she went back to work after 2 months was especially hard.

"[I gave] myself that mental break from always being perfect because when I was traveling, [I thought] 'I'm really good at traveling, and then all of a sudden you become a mom and you're like, 'I'm really bad at being a mom.' You're really learning. I wanted to go back to where I felt confident again," she says. "My job really made me feel confident as a person again, which I needed, so it was important for me to get back out there."

Having kids also made her realize that her previous advice for parents traveling with children was flimsy. "I always say that having kids was punishment for all the traveling with kids advice I gave before I had kids, because I had no idea what I was talking about. It's so different," she says with a laugh.

Brown also admits that she "embarrassingly, very rarely," takes personal vacations. Her family of four has never even had a proper vacation without cameras in tow, she says.

"Our personal vacations are literally to go to our parents' house." she says, joking that she sleeps on the floor there.

But now that her twins are 10, they plan on finally fulfilling a milestone and are "taking our first big family vacation" to London and Amsterdam. And the getaway is long overdue. "I've told my husband, 'I'd like to just actually have a real vacation.' I usually always have to have my hair done or do an interview or give a talk, which is wonderful. But just where I can just be, just let it go, I would love it," she says.

Of course, the COVID-19 pandemic put a wrench in her professional travel plans. But after a 6-month traveling hiatus, her crew was back to filming in October of 2020. While they extensively masked and tested, Brown says it was still "scary" since it was "before the vaccine."

"It was really fascinating shooting during a pandemic, and especially in the spring of 2021," after the vaccination became widely available. It was "a time where the whole world was just coming out from their shell and everyone felt socially awkward," she says. "Everyone was struggling. And it was a really special time because everyone was very vulnerable. It was more personal, more intimate. I always appreciated that I got to be out talking to people and being with people, even though that was kind of a fearful thing at the time."

On her PBS show, she even featured cloistered monks in upstate New York to give viewers, who may be struggling with at-home fatigue, a look into a group who constantly "isolate" and meditate. Brown recalls asking one monk to give viewers advice amid the COVID-19 lockdown.

"He said, 'Trust the silence. You feel like it's really disconcerting because we're always inundated with images and conversation. When these things happen, cracks begin to form in the foundation of who you are when you're not surrounded by all this stuff. And when that cracks open, your real person comes through that. Let that come through.' It was just beautiful," she recounts.

As one of the first women travel hosts to be widely televised alongside her male counterparts, Brown says she's proud of what she's done to pave the way for other women, while also acknowledging "we need a lot more diversity out there."

Reflecting on her over two decade-long career, Brown says she still "never thought this was going to happen."

"When I meet younger women, who started watching me when they were 11, and they were like, 'You were the only girl on TV.' It's a shock because I'm like 'Oh, I never thought of it like that,' she says. "But to be that person for people and for girls to see themselves in travel, or to realize that they could travel alone, or maybe even do a career, that has been the greatest gift — that I'm looked up to and I'm a real inspiration for other people."

While she lifts the veil behind the scenes of traveling as part of a show, Brown maintains what she set out to do at the very beginning of her career.

"I really wanted to not just be someone who showed people how to travel…but really create that connection with an audience," she says. "I knew I wanted to be different than how a lot of other people showed travel — which was more like a presenter — and really just be a best friend who you could travel with and have a great time. That's really worked for me for the last 23 years."

Season 6 of Samantha Brown's Places to Love is airing now on PBS stations.

Fhsaa basketball district breakdown: uf signee isaiah brown’s return key for ocp.

Orlando Christian Prep basketball standout Isaiah Brown (20) was hurt in this Dec. 5 game against Harmony said his coach. Brown, a UF recruit, may return to the court soon (Stephen M. Dowell/Orlando Sentinel)

Orlando Christian Prep senior Isaiah Brown, a top preseason contender for Orlando area Player of the Year honors, is back from injury just in time for the FHSAA boys basketball playoffs, which tip off with district tournaments this week.

OCP (19-4) played without the Florida Gators signee since a Dec. 5 win against Harmony until he returned to the court for a Senior Night win against Cocoa. Even without Brown the Warriors would be a heavy favorite to dominate the Class 2A District 7 tournament. The 10-time state champ Warriors have been region champions eight years in a row and claimed five FHSAA finals victories in that span.

But keeping that region title streak going and securing another final-four appearance will be very difficult and the availability of Brown, a 6-foot-6 guard definitely increases OCP’s chances. He averaged a team-high 17.0 points as the Warriors started 4-0 before he was sidelined.

Harmony players Frans Richardson (15) and Jayson Ford (top right) stop OCP player Isaiah Brown (20) during the Harmony High at Orlando Christian Prep varsity basketball game in Orlando on Tuesday, December 5, 2023. (Stephen M. Dowell/Orlando Sentinel)

For the first time in coach Treig Burke’s eight seasons as head coach, the Warriors are not favored to win their region. Victory Christian (21-4) of Lakeland is ranked No. 1 in 2A and is projected to be home against OCP in a Feb. 23 region final if the rankings hold up.

Defending state champ Sagemont (17-6) of Broward County, the Region 4 favorite, is ranked second. OCP is No. 3 a year after losing a championship-game heartbreaker to Sagemont 67-66 in March.

Four district champions and four at-large qualifiers per region, based on power rankings, advance to Thursday, Feb. 15, regional quarterfinals.

The format guarantees highly rated teams will reach regional play even if they absorb losses this week. That’s again good news for three power programs in Class 7A District 5. Oak Ridge (21-3), ranked No. 14 in the MaxPreps national Top 25 and No. 3 in 7A, joins No. 4 Olympia (18-7) and No. 7 Windermere (17-7) as three of the top teams in the large-school classification. No other district across the top six classes (2A-7A) has three teams ranked No. 7 or better.

A year ago, Jizzle James — now playing college ball for Cincinnati — led top seed Olympia in a hard-fought 71-66 district-final victory against Oak Ridge, which won at Windermere in the semifinal round.

Olympia is host for the semifinals and finals this time.

The other highest-ranked area teams are: 6A No. 1 Edgewater (17-7), 3A No. 4 Windermere Prep (18-7), 4A No. 5 Lake Highland Prep  (21-3) and 6A No. 6 Oviedo (21-4).

A sleeper to watch is St. Cloud (19-5), which hasn’t won a district championship since 1971. The Bulldogs, 8-18 last season, have won 13 of their past 14 games.

According to FHSAA brackets, all district quarterfinals are Tuesday (many  hosted by the team with a higher power ranking), followed by Thursday semifinals and Saturday championship games.

You can find pairings under the “District Tournaments” label on the FHSAA.com online boys basketball page but be warned that all of the location information is not correct.

Here’s the breakdown:

7A District 2

All games played at Seminole High School.

Top seed: Seminole (19-6) shoots for seventh straight district title.

7A District 3

All games played at Evans.

Top seed: Evans (15-9) eyes first title since 2019. Second seed Lake Brantley (19-6), 14-1 since losing to Trojans 50-49, should see Ocoee (17-8) for first time in semifinal.

7A District 4 

Semifinals and final at Hagerty.

Top seed: Orlando University (19-5) set  school record for regular season wins but is 2-3 against district foes in  very balanced league. Boone (13-11, 3-1), Winter Park (15-10, 4-2), Colonial (14-11, 4-3) and Hagerty (18-7, 1-1) all have reasonable hope.

7A District 5

All games at Olympia.

Top seed: Oak Ridge is back at full strength with return of 6-6 junior Jamier Jones, who sat out three games last week due to flu.  Pioneers beat Olympia 87-73 in its only regular-season district game. Titans also lost to third seed Windermere 66-61, which looms for rival rematch on Thursday.

7A District 6

Semifinals and final at Lake Nona.

Top seed: Harmony (20-5) did not play second-seed Poinciana (15-6) in regular season.

6A District 5

Semifinals and final at New Smyrna Beach.

Top seed: Oviedo, seeking its first district crown since 2017, finished regular season on  high note with  65-56 revenge win vs. 7A Seminole.

6A District 6

Higher seed hosts each game.

Top seed: Four of Edgewater’s five losses inside Florida are to teams ranked top-10 in their class. Second-seed East River (15-9) set  school record for wins in season, eclipsing 14.

6A District 7

Top seed: Reigning champ Lakeland (16-5) edged Olympia on Friday. St. Cloud is  second seed.

5A District 4

All games at Seabreeze.

Top seed: Mainland (17-6) was  5A state runner-up last season. Second seed Deltona (16-7) ranks fifth in Region 1.

5A District 5

Top seed: Leesburg (14-4) is vying for its fourth consecutive district title.

5A District 7

Top seed: Can Jones (10-13) find  way to  final four for third straight year?

4A District 6

Top seed: Eustis (20-4) hasn’t beaten second-seed Villages Charter (14-11) since 2018-19 season.

4A District 7

Top seed: Lake Highland Prep has won 16 of its past 17 games.

3A District 4

Higher seed hosts each game. Games are Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Top seed: Defending champ The Master’s Academy (15-9) hopes to have 6-6 senior standout Scott Verboncoeur back from injury soon.

3A District 6

Top seed: Windermere Prep’s top eight scorers are underclassmen.

2A District 6

At Trinity Christian (Deltona).

Top seed: MDCA (13-12) shoots for its third consecutive district title.

2A District 7

Top seed: OCP has won seven straight district titles.

2A District 8

Top seed: Victory Christian’s Lorenzo Cason, who signed with FAU, has more than 2,000 career points.

Old Fashioned Brown Bread Recipe

Home baked brown bread recipe.

G et the taste of brown bread you love at restaurants at home.  We’ve got a recipe that makes 2 loaves.  This is perfect to use for toast, sandwiches or served with soup.

Brown bread has a more distinct delicious flavor compared to baking traditional white bread . There is another level deliciousness.  If you like making banana bread or cheese bread , brown bread should be on your baking list too.

What Makes This Brown Bread?

The bread is brown due to molasses.  The molasses gives a deep rich color along with a distinct taste that adds a lot of flavor.  Play with the recipe by adjusting the amount of molasses,  you may need to add additional flour.

Ingredients used:

  • active dry yeast
  • vegetable shortening
  • rolled oats
  • all purpose flour
  • melted butter/vegetable oil
  • cooking spray

Is Whole Wheat Flour Used?

This recipe uses all purpose flour.  This is an old recipe from the 1950s.  There are newer recipes that use wheat flour.  If you adjust your bread using wheat flour, note that wheat flour is denser and may not rises as much.

Do You Add Sugar To Brown Bread?

As this recipe states below, we do not add sugar to the brown bread recipe.  Any sweetness will come from the molasses (it’s a type of liquid sugar)

What Kind Of Oats Are Used?

We used old fashioned oats to make this brown bread recipe. You can optionally sprinkle a few on top if you want as well.

What Size Loaf Pan Is Used?

The standard size loaf pan is 9×5 inch. This recipe makes 2 standard size loaves. You can also use mini loaf pans. Each regular loaf makes 3 smaller mini loaves.

How Long Does the Bread Need To Rise?

The bread is overed in plastic wrap or a tea towel and will rise the first time for 15 minutes. The second time you let the dough rise, it will be in the loaf pan and will rise until double in size or above the pan.

Do You Need Bread Flour?

This easy-to-prepare bread recipe uses all-purpose flour.

Is This An Irish Brown Bread?

No. Irish Soda Bread incorporates several ingredients, including whole wheat flour, water, salt, sugar, and yeast.

How Long Does This Bread Recipe Bake?

The brown bread takes about 35 minutes to bake. You will want it to get a nice golden brown. You may notice a smell in your kitchen, that is a sign that your bread is/or is almost ready.

Can You Bake This Bread In A Dutch Oven?

You can. I have not done this, but I think you would use the entire dough in the Dutch oven. Be sure to line it with parchment paper and put water in the oven to add moisture.
