Good Monday afternoon in New York City, where the Trini roti is good. Here's what else is happening:

  • The New York Times has a horrifying story about pregnant patients at Brooklyn's Woodhull Hospital who "suffered adverse outcomes related to the administration of anesthesia" — including one woman who died — and the larger issue of disparities in care between wealthy hospitals in Manhattan and public hospitals in predominantly Black or Hispanic parts of the outer boroughs.
  • Third-party subway cleaners who were hired by the MTA at the peak of the pandemic were abruptly fired via WhatsApp messages in the period between Christmas and New Years, without the 30-day notice their union expected.
  • "That’s how I sit at my desk at home.

  • Congrats to Ben Shelton, Sebi Korda and Tommy Paul, the three American men who've made it to the final eight at the Australian Open.
  • A survey by a vehicle research firm found that owners of Ford F-150s — the most popular car in America — most associate themselves with the words "powerful" and "rugged," though a third of American pick-up truck owners "rarely or never" use their truck to haul stuff.
