Man charged with felony DWI and AUO

All WNY News     Thursday, February 22, 2018    
STAFF REPORTS



DELEVAN -- A 59-year-old Farmersville man was charged Wednesday with driving while intoxicated and aggravated unlicensed operation. 


According to New York State Police, Robert J. Baily Jr. was stopped on State Route 16 for failure to keep right. Baily was placed under arrest after failing multiple SFSTs and was transported to SP Machias for processing. Baily was also found to be operating with a revoked driver's license. 

Baily was arraigned at the town of Yorkshire Court and released on his own recognizance with a return date in March 2018. 

Schneiderman continues to fight against rollback of net neutrality

All WNY News     Thursday, February 22, 2018    
STAFF REPORTS


NEW YORK – New York Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman led a coalition of 23 Attorneys General in filing a petition today to formally commence their lawsuit against the Federal Communications Commission's illegal rollback of net neutrality. The coalition filed a petition for review in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit after the FCC published the final rule rolling back net neutrality in today's Federal Register.

"Today, the FCC made official its illegal rollback of net neutrality – and, as promised, our coalition of Attorneys General is filing suit," said Attorney General Schneiderman. "An open internet, and the free exchange of ideas it allows, is critical to our democratic process. Repealing net neutrality will allow internet service providers to put corporate profits over consumers by controlling what we see, do, and say online. Consumers and businesses in New York and across the country have the right to a free and open internet, and our coalition of Attorneys General won't stop fighting to protect that right."

Click here to read the petition. The lawsuit is led by Attorney General Schneiderman, and filed by the Attorneys General of New York, California, Connecticut, Delaware, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, Minnesota, Mississippi, New Mexico, New Jersey, North Carolina, Oregon, Pennsylvania, Rhode Island, Vermont, Virginia, Washington, and the District of Columbia.
The repeal of net neutrality would have dire consequences for consumers and businesses in New York and across the country that rely on a free and open internet – allowing internet service providers to block certain content, charge consumers more to access certain sites, and throttle or slow the quality of content from content providers that don't pay more.

As the Attorneys General will argue in their suit, under the Administrative Procedure Act the FCC cannot make "arbitrary and capricious" changes to existing policies, such as net neutrality. The FCC's rule fails to justify the Commission's departure from its long-standing policy and practice of defending net neutrality, while misinterpreting and disregarding critical record evidence on industry practices and harm to consumers and businesses (which were detailed in Attorney General Schneiderman's comments submitted last year). Moreover, the rule wrongly reclassifies broadband internet as a Title I information service, rather than a Title II telecommunications service, based on an erroneous and unreasonable interpretation of the Telecommunications Act. Finally, the rule improperly and unlawfully includes sweeping preemption of state and local laws.

Buff State grad launches first Skype-based cooking class company

All WNY News     Wednesday, February 21, 2018    
STAFF REPORTS


What if you knew how to make Italian pasta from scratch, had the perfect fried chicken recipe, or could roll your own sushi like a pro?

Technically you can—with a little help—and all without having to leave your kitchen.

Jenn Nicken, a 2002 graduate of  Buffalo State, founded the Chef & the Dish, a Toronto-based company that offers private cooking classes via Skype with chefs all over the globe. Culinary enthusiasts can choose from nearly 40 unique dishes—everything from Southern to Spanish to Singaporean cuisine—and learn from a renowned expert in real time.

“There are so many flavors that reflect unique traditions and cultures,” said Nicken, who has taken cooking courses in over 10 countries—including Australia, China, Germany, Italy, and Thailand. “Not everyone has the opportunity to experience authentic dishes firsthand.”

Her business idea officially sparked while she was eating pasta Bolognese in Bologna, Italy. After one bite, she realized that it tasted quite different from the “Italian” pasta with meat sauce she’d eaten at home.

“You can truly taste the difference with the right approach, techniques, and ingredients,” Nicken said. “My company grew from wanting to bring these flavors into more people’s homes and reinvent the ‘night in.’”

Bringing people together through food is at the heart of the Chef & the Dish experience, according to Nicken.

“Through one-on-one coaching, our clients are able to connect with chefs who are literally making the same dish as you,” she said. “They are genuinely passionate about the food and want to share it with others. And you can ask your chef anything food-related and beyond. So you’re also learning about the history and culture of the regional dish.”

Before leaving a steady career to travel the world, Nicken worked in marketing for the entertainment, technology, and restaurant industries for almost 15 years. Her career journey started the same day as her undergraduate Commencement ceremony at Buffalo State.

“I actually missed graduation to pack up my car and move to Los Angeles and start a job,” said Nicken, who studied public communication.

Her first full-time position at an ad agency allowed her to work with entertainment giants like Apple, ABC, NBC, and Lifetime television. Ever since, Nicken has sought work that promotes creativity and innovation.

She was later hired by one of her former clients, Apple, to head up marketing for iTunes Canada. During her seven years at the company, Nicken worked on teams that oversaw several global campaigns.

“Regardless of whether I was at a small agency or a global organization, I’ve always been encouraged to have an entrepreneurial spirit,” said Nicken, who left Apple in 2016. She traveled for three months and started the Chef & the Dish about a year after returning to Toronto.

While Nicken doesn't have a formal culinary background, she has learned under world-class chefs: “I’ve taken several semesters of culinary school and more cooking classes than anyone I know.”

She also believes the company’s success has as much to do with technology as it does with food.

“We are very much a technology company. The user experience and use of Skype impact our success,” she said.

At Buffalo State, Nicken first learned how to deliver a message and to overcome inevitable challenges.

“I am responsible for getting my company out there every day,” she said. “Buffalo State gave me a strong foundation and the communication skills that I still use as an entrepreneur. The Creative Studies Department taught me that every problem has a solution—sometimes you just have to pivot.”

For Nicken, a trip to Italy ignited her interest in food in its most authentic form; however, the native Buffalonian grew up with an appreciation for regional cuisine.

“I still joke that the farther you get from Buffalo, the worse the chicken wings taste,” she said. “They always have too many ingredients or stray too far from the original recipe. Our classes introduce you to not just authentic dishes but real people who love and are proud of where they’re from. Maybe that’s part of my inspiration, as well. Buffalo is the City of Good Neighbors, after all, so maybe it’s that friendly spirit that’s inspired me to connect people all around the world.”
