Plantains have similar nutritive value as fresh bananas plus vitamin A, and are an excellent source of carbohydrates, according to the University of Florida Extension.

    1. In the Philippines, Banana cue is a popular snack. The portmanteau 'Banana cue' may be a misnomer as it is not really cooked in a skewer over hot embers like a barbecue. Rather, the peeled flesh of an under ripe plantain is fried in hot oil over medium fire before it is held in a skewer ready for sale. There are two ways to prepare a banana cue.

    4. Plantains contain more starch and less sugar than dessert bananas and are therefore usually cooked or otherwise processed before being eaten. They are always cooked or fried when eaten green. At this stage, the pulp is hard and the peel often so stiff that it has to be cut with a knife to be removed. Mature plantains can be peeled like typical dessert bananas; the pulp is softer than in immature, green fruit and some of the starch has been converted to sugar. They can be eaten raw, but are not as flavorful in that state as dessert bananas, so are usually cooked. When mature, yellow plantains are fried, they tend to caramelize, turning a golden-brown color. They can also be boiled, baked, microwaved or grilled over charcoal, peeled or still in the peel.

    1. The uptick in violent offenses has led authorities to add more patrols to troubled neighborhoods. One area will be the 46th Precinct, in the Morris Heights section of the Bronx. No murders were committed in the precinct in 2015, but it has persistently high crime rates. Since 2001, murders have only declined by 18%, even lower than the 48th Precinct.

    2. Cox’s death falls within the jurisdiction of the 48th Precinct, which has had two homicides already this year. Unlike other parts of the city, this area of the Bronx has not benefited from great declines in crime over the past decade. Murders are down 23% in the 48th between 2001 and 2014 — which is actually one of the lowest declines in the Bronx — while felony assaults (this category includes severe injuries from “deadly weapons”) are actually up 16% during the same period.

    4. Along with a decline in stop-and-frisks searches, the NYPD made changes to its protocols in arrests people for marijuana possession. Individuals found with less than 25 grams of the substance receive a summons instead of being taken into custody.

      Weed had been the cost of people dieing in the world and especially in the Bronx and Brooklyn

    5. Along with beefing up patrols in problematic areas, the NYPD announced on March 16th that it would be implementing ShotSpotter technology. The city is distributing hundreds of ShotSpotter microphone sensors in parts of the city. The device — which is already in use in places like Washington, D.C., Newark and Atlantic City — can detect a gunshot and send an alert to the NYPD, which would then send units to respond. The department will first use the software in five specific zones located in the Bronx and Brooklyn.

      The crime is going around in the world even in the Bronx

    6. In 2014, the NYPD also made two major adjustments to its arresting procedures. The first was after a federal ruling forced the department to reform its stop-and-frisk practices because it was deemed to be unconstitutional. This led to a 75% drop in stop-and-frisk searches in 2014. Former NYPD Commissioner Ray Kelly was a big proponent of this strategy, saying it saved lives by taking weapons off of New York City streets.

    7. The Bronx has seen a bloody start to the New Year. Out of 11 murders, six were shooting related, with another three by a weapon other than a firearm.

    8. Despite a decline in overall crime rates since 2001, shootings and murders are on the rise in New York City. There were 149 shootings and 54 violent deaths (nine in the Bronx) by March 2nd of 2015, both up 20% from this time last year.  The New York Police Department has responded by increasing patrols in troubled neighborhoods and by installing ShotSpotter, a gun shot detection system, in areas of high gun violence.
