Former WWE rookie, released from contract, will fight in UC
A World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) rookie – who earlier this month appeared to take an announcer’s necktie and put it around the announcer’s neck – is scheduled to appear at an upcoming wrestling event in Union City.
On June 11, WWE announced that first season rookie Bryan Danielson (also known as Daniel Bryan) would be released from his contract effective immediately. Wrestling insiders and reports by Wrestling Observer and f4wonline have speculated that it was because of the necktie incident during a WWE Raw match on June 7. The ring announcer was not injured.
Many fans and wrestling insiders had deemed Danielson, who has been wrestling professionally since 1999 and has held numerous championships in independent promotions, to be a promising rookie.
Just days after his release from the WWE contract, Danielson was put on the card for the upcoming wrestling event, “EVOLVE 4,” at Ace Arena in Union City on July 23. His opponent is “to be announced.”
WNY mayor hosts exporting seminar
A seminar, entitled “Peru – Strategic Food Supplier for the World,” will be hosted by West New
York Mayor Silverio “Sal” Vega on June 29 at 5 p.m. at Public School 4, 6300
Palisade Ave., West New York.
The seminar will provide information about the benefits of investing in Peruvian industries.
The goal of the seminar is to promote trade between Peru and the United States and to discuss
the benefits of the new Free Trade Agreement between the Dominican Republic and Peru, which
promotes economic growth by expanding opportunities for workers and business.
Peruvian agriculture has experienced a 25 percent growth since 2005, with developing sectors
such as processed fruits and vegetables leading the way. Peru’s organic products are expanding
an average of 50 percent since 2007. The country is the world’s second largest exporter of organic cacao. Additionally, the country’s aquaculture and traditional fishery accounts for about eight percent of the world’s catch in marine waters.
The seminar will also help prepare attendees for an international conference called
Expoalimentaria 2010 in Lima, Peru on September 22, where more than 300 guests, including
high-level government officials, dignitaries and business leaders will gather to explore business
opportunities and to preserve principles of sustainability and fair trade.

Greenpeace report says Hudson County chemical plant has highest risk in U.S.
The non-profit environmental group Greenpeace says they recently conducted a “citizens’ inspection” of a chemical plant in South Kearny that holds containers of chlorine gas for use in producing liquid bleach.
They said that they obtained photos and other information suggesting that the plant is vulnerable and could leak the gas for miles if attacked by terrorists.
The Greenpeace report starts off saying that according to “[The] chemical company’s own reports to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), its South Kearny New Jersey facility puts 12 million people at risk in the New Jersey-New York City area due to the bulk storage of 2 million pounds of chlorine gas. This plant puts more people at risk of a chemical disaster than any other plant in the U.S.”
They also say that the plant is aware of “safer chemical processes that could eliminate these risks.”
