[ - ] 2.63% of all Americans live inside of NYC city limits, and about 6.9% of all Americans live in the greater NYC metro region. It's a strong plurality compared to any other city or metro area - the comparable figures for runner-up LA are 1.2% in the city and about 5% in the metro. What's interesting is how low this is compared to many other countries. For example, London city is around 15.9% of England's population, and Greater London is around 30.2%. 8 Replies [ Reply | Watch | More ]

[ - ] There is a fellow mom in my 18m old (second child)'s private music playgroup who is already trying to exclude me. Maybe she's a racist (who knows, I'm asian) but she is always saying things to other people in front of me like, "I'll email you..." or announcing to a group without looking at me saying, "on new years eve, come to this etc." It could be her personality (aggressive bullying type) but I find it polarizes the group a little.

are you being too sensitive (and trust me, I am sensitive myself) but maybe she and the other women are friends outside of class?
