Ridgewood’s Oasis spun reels and wheels to the delight of generations of residents: Our Neighborhood, The Way it Was – QNS.com Ridgewood’s Oasis spun reels and wheels to the delight of generations of residents: Our Neighborhood, The Way it Was

You may have read recently about the impending renovations to 63-57 Fresh Pond Rd. in Ridgewood, which at one time was one of our neighborhood’s finest movie houses. More recently the site of a discount store (and, immediately before that, a CVS Pharmacy), the location was the Oasis Theatre, which opened in 1927 as a 1,700-seat film lover’s paradise. It would last for nearly 50 years before undergoing the first of its many transformations, as a beloved roller rink enjoyed by generations of children. Sol Brill opened the Oasis Theatre on Sept. 16, 1927, according to Cinema Treasures. It would later become part of what was called the Randforce Circuit, and later became part of the United Artists family. The Oasis was built in what the New York City Chapter of the American Guild of Organists described as “a subdued Egyptian style, draping the stage opening and surrounding area to suggest a tent that might be found in a desert oasis.” Though constructed at a time when vaudeville was still a popular form of entertainment in America, the Oasis’ stage was too shallow for such acts. The theater was used strictly for showcasing films, and was constructed during the silent movie era in wh...

Keith Thornhill, Siemens Digital Industries, Head of Food and Beverage, discusses why it is time for

Keith Thornhill, Siemens Digital Industries, Head of Food and Beverage, discusses why it is time for manufacturers to embrace the smart factory. Whenever I am asked about why food and beverage manufacturers should seriously consider the benefits of investing in advanced technologies, I often describe the scenario of a commercial bakery at full speed at five o’clock in the morning. As the loaves are carried on conveyor belts towards automated slicers and wrappers, someone on the line spots that something isn’t right with the product. Upon further investigation it is revealed that an unusually cold night has seen the factory temperature drop a couple of degrees more than anticipated. As a result, the dough has failed to reach its optimum proving temperature of 34ºC and therefore has not risen sufficiently. Consequently, the entire batch is ruined, the morning delivery is delayed, customers are very unhappy and the entire production process is now off schedule. In incredibly thin-margin sectors like baked goods and confectionery, this type of situation can be all too common, yet many manufacturers chalk it up to bad luck and revert to the same methods and processes they have always...

What’s the purpose of the small indentation on the back of a wine bottle?

Hello there! I’m Dr. Vinifera, but you can call me Vinny. Ask me your toughest wine questions, from the fine points of etiquette to the science of winemaking. And don’t worry, I’m no wine snob—you can also ask me those “dumb questions” you’re too embarrased to ask your wine geek friends! I hope you find my answers educational, empowering and even amusing. And don’t forget to check out my most asked questions and my full archives for all my Q&A classics. I recently discovered a small indentation on the back of some wine bottles, near the base. What’s that for? First, to clarify for others, we’re not talking about the big indentation, or “punt,” in the base of most wine bottles. There’s also sometimes a small indentation or notch on the back of a wine bottle, near the base or sometimes in the base itself, about the width of a drinking straw. It’s sometimes referred to as the “keyhole,” and it’s used to align bottles when their labels are being applied. And now you know!

Recent attempted bombings in Northern Ireland could drag us all back to the Troubles

FOR THOSE OF us with experience of the Troubles on this island, recent incidents involving dissident republicans in Northern Ireland make for grim reading. Last Saturday, a member of the public spotted a suspicious device perched on top of a wall directly opposite a number of family homes on Church View, Strabane in Tyrone.  The PSNI declared it to be a ‘viable device’ which “failed to deploy”. On examination by technical officers, the device was described as a mortar with a command wire electrical initiation system. According to the PSNI, the intention was to target the PSNI station in Strabane. The PSNI later released images of the device. It appears to be a relatively small mortar, consisting of three tubes – most likely commonly available copper, or steel pipes – with electrical firing mechanisms arranged around the base of each pipe. The device resembles a modified ‘Mark 16’ mortar – of a type designed and used by the Provisional IRA during the Troubles. Such mortars are designed to carry a payload of up to 1kg of high explosives, in a highly penetrative, high temperature shaped-charge. They are also light, highly portable and do not require the base plate to be anchored – ...

I mean, sure, it’s fun to gab with your besties about the strangest thing Amazon recommended today.

Stroll into any pharmacy and you’ll find a huge selection of foot care products. It makes

Stroll into any pharmacy and you’ll find a huge selection of foot care products. It makes sense — tasks like standing and walking put a lot of pressure on the feet, and painful conditions like calluses are bound to spring up. But while there are plenty of treatment options on the market, the best callus removers (read: the ones that actually work) are few and far between. Fortunately, there are a handful of great products out there, and online ordering means you can nab them without having to limp beyond the front door. Callus removers come in many different forms, so narrowing down your preferred method is likely the most challenging part. Most tools can be broken down into two distinct categories: manual and chemical exfoliation. Manual exfoliation: Tools within this category physically buff away the top layer of dead skin using a rough or sharp material, which then reveals the softer layer underneath. Knives, shavers, electric callus removers, and pumice stones all fit into this group. For tough, resilient skin (like the skin on the bottom of your feet) physical exfoliation is great — but be careful with more sensitive areas like the hands, knees, or elbows, as coarse m...

Theft of large timber dog sculpture heartbreaking for Taranaki widow

When Marion Calder rang police to report her dog Henry missing she was upset, but also a little bit embarrassed.  Henry, a precious link to her late husband Don, was made of wood after all and by her own admission “mangy looking”.  “I felt stupid ringing the police to report a three-foot high mangy-looking dog being stolen, but they were very nice.” READ MORE: * Auckland art gallery staff ‘thrilled’ after stolen $55,000 bronze gnome is returned * Artist shocked by theft of $55,000 gnome statue from outside central Auckland art gallery * Barks in bronze: The dog statues of NZ The sculpture was so realistic real dogs sometimes barked at it, and it even fooled a neighbour who thought she had acquired a dog. Despite having the dog for many year Calder did not have a photo of it.  The sculpture was made for a friend and after his death, his widow gifted it to Marion’s husband Don because he liked it so much. The years in the rain had left it looking somewhat weathered, she said, and it now only had three legs. “He still looked like a boxer, a mangy one, but he’s 38 years old, getting to that age, he was doing all right.” Ma...

How to use the Shop feature on Instagram to buy products

If you are a frequent Instagram user, chances are you may have noticed some posts in your feed with a small shopping bag icon, tucked in the lower left-hand corner.  This is Instagram’s Shop feature, which includes products offered by hundreds of brands and retailers across the world — and it’s a wise investment from the social media platform.   Analysts told Business Insider that Instagram’s move to shopping will be so successful that it will generate $10 billion in revenue by 2021.
