Konrad Bicher: NYC’s Own Batman!
The Real Deal’s “The Wolf of Airbnb” is the hero NYC needs and deserves.
[New York, NY, 10th/February/2022] – The Real Deal wrote an article titled “The Wolf of Airbnb” Terrorizing Landlords”, about one tenant, Konrad Bicher, for his battles against landlords in the city. The article was loaded with one-sided accusations against a tenant courageous enough to battle back against those who many would rightfully consider “slumlords” that control the fabric of NYC’s housing.
New York City is a city of tenants, many of which fall prey to the abuse of landlords. Absentee landlords that mistreat their buildings through various doses of neglect plague the city. The tenants of all classes remain subject to these negligent landlords that enjoy a sumptuous quality of life largely subsidized by the tenants they fail to properly accommodate.
In Kriston Capps’ words, which he wrote in his Bloomberg CityLab article “New York Is A City of Renters at Every Stage of Life,” “Gotham renters are paying the way for owners, and renters are not exactly living the dream.”
The Real Deal, duteously catering to its audience of property owners who only see their tenants as a means to an end, described Konrad as villain because he is battling the landlords of New York (and winning). In a city of neglected tenants without awareness, energy, or the spirit to stand up against the Goliath of a New York City landlord, Konrad is bravely fighting the battle against the corruption plaguing the city.
The viciousness of the landlords in New York was immediately clear as Konrad displayed photos of some of his apartments together with many screenshots of the texts, he received from the absentee owners of the buildings within which his apartments unfortunately reside. The evidence he illuminated served as a disturbing display of New York City “slumlords” and how they operate.
He has been victimized in the past by the landlords. Illegal break-ins by his landlord or the landlord’s property manager; illegal lockouts; routine code violations throughout the buildings and the apartments; renting to tenants such as Konrad without a Certificate of Occupancy; texts sent to Konrad from landlords requesting that he stage apartments to hide violations such as an illegally added bathroom and bedroom; threats and harassment directed at not only Konrad, but to his close peers as well; flooded rooms that develop rat infestation problems; turning off his gas and hot water until Konrad paid rent; turning off his power; throwing his furniture out of the apartment after changing the locks; installing cameras outside Konrad’s apartment doors. The list grows more and more daunting with further investigation. After experiencing the dishonorable acts Konrad encountered just to live in New York City, the powerlessness of him and his fellow renters ignited him into defensive action. He became the wolf that protects himself and those around him that are routinely losing the immoral battles initiated by the landlords who own the city. The battles fought and won by Konrad against multiple landlords in New York hold an appeal that should resonate with most tenants in the city.
The integrity by which New York City landlords fail to conduct their duty to tenants is frightening given their power over such a large share of the city’s population. The corrupt impropriety of these landlords is strengthened by the scarcity of individuals that stand valiantly in opposition to their goals.
The Real Deal’s article on Konrad unintentionally expressed how submissive the city is to landlords that many, especially those reading the Real Deal, treat as omnipotent and omniscient. These landlords celebrated The Real Deal’s article laced with ignorance in its depiction of a tenant as a criminal when truly he is one of the few individuals carrying the courage and willingness to fight back against the corruption pervading New York landlords. Konrad stands out as an easy victim given his loneliness in a daunting battle against the predators preying over the majority of New Yorkers. His side of the story—the side that represents the defenseless renters in the city—must be shared. Konrad diligently organized all evidence of any landlord he witnessed blatantly and aggressively breaking laws in their battle against him, none of which was shared with The Real Deal, who claimed he is the one doing the terrorizing? But the forum is now open.
This lonely battle is being fought with high hopes for the city’s officials to emerge and minimize the power that the collection of slumlords holds and abuse as they force hazardous environments upon the city’s population.

MP Presale: Early Access and The Mirror Launch Sequence
The Mirror Protocol (MP) has gained significant attention in the decentralized finance (DeFi) space, generating anticipation for its presale. However, unlike traditional presales that offer discounted token prices, MP adopts a unique approach. This article explores the rationale behind MP’s decision not to have discounted token prices during the presale and the various factors influencing this strategy.
Premium Company Image.
The decision not to offer discounted token prices during the presale aligns with MP’s positioning as a premium company. By maintaining the token price at a consistent level, MP emphasizes the value and quality of its ecosystem. This approach ensures that early participants perceive MP as a reliable and high-caliber project, building trust and attracting long-term supporters rather than short-term speculators.
Avoiding Massive Sell-Offs.
Discounted token prices during presales often attract participants solely interested in taking advantage of the discounted rates and selling off their tokens immediately after listing. This can result in significant price volatility and undermine the stability of the project. MP aims to discourage such early sell-offs and create a sustainable market environment by setting a fair token price during the presale.
MP Launch Sequence.
To manage the presale process effectively, MP implements a launch sequence that includes specific measures:
a) Sell Limit for the First 48 Hours.
During the initial 48 hours of the presale, MP implements a sell limit to regulate the volume of tokens that can be sold. This measure helps prevent any potential market manipulation or excessive token dumping, promoting a more controlled and stable market environment.
b) Presale Dashboard.
MP provides a dedicated presale dashboard where participants can track the progress and status of the presale in real-time. The dashboard offers transparency and enhances the user experience, enabling participants to make informed decisions and monitor the presale’s progression.
The Mirror Protocol’s decision not to offer discounted token prices during the presale reflects its commitment to maintaining a premium company image, avoiding malicious sell-offs, and serving its marketing objectives. By setting a fair token price, The Mirror Protocol attracts long-term supporters who believe in the project’s value and are invested in its success. The implementation of measures such as a sell limit during the initial phase and the provision of a presale dashboard enhances transparency and ensures a controlled presale process. Through this strategic approach, The Mirror Protocol sets the stage for a sustainable and thriving ecosystem in the decentralized finance space.
The Town of Kingstown in ‘Mayor of Kingstown’ Is Home to Seven Prisons — Is It a Real Place?
Imagine growing up in a place that is home to seven prisons. You can now picture ‘Mayor of Kingstown,’ but is Kingstown, Michigan real?
L.M. Montgomery, the author of Anne of Green Gables, once said in The Blue Castle, “That’s all the freedom we can hope for — the freedom to choose our prison.” In Kingstown, Mich. where Mayor of Kingstown takes place, you certainly have options in that regard.
In the show, there are seven prisons in the town, a town that needs them to survive. Is Kingstown, Mich. real or is it just another Hollywood fabrication?
Is Kingstown, Mich. real?
While Kingstown, Mich. is a fictional city, it’s actually based on a real town in Ontario, Canada. Taylor Sheridan, who is best known for Yellowstone, is focusing on something different with Mayor of Kingstown. While Yellowstone allows the viewers to drink in the gorgeous Montana mountains, Mayor of Kingstown does the opposite. In Kingstown, the sky is not limitless, but the prison sentences are.
Terry created the show with Hugh Dillon, who grew up in Kingston, Ontario. Kingston is called the prison capital of Canada, and it has certainly earned that title. There are nine prisons in the area, seven of which are located within the city’s municipal boundaries. In September 2013, its most famous prison shuttered its doors forever.
Kingston Penitentiary opened in 1835 and was even once on the receiving end of a touring Charles Dickens. This prison, much like the prisons in Mayor of Kingstown, is most known for the role its inmates played in building the city itself.
It was their job to toil in the nearby limestone quarry, breaking apart rocks that would eventually become buildings. Within its walls, men learned admirable trades such as furniture making.
Before we wax poetic about the prison, it was also an unkind place. In 1847, prisoners were subjected to a slew of cruel punishments, like The Box. The Box looked like a coffin, except it stood upright, as did the prisoner inside of it anywhere from six to nine hours.
The men were also beaten using cat-o’-nine-tails. Having this many prisons in one place really does something to a city, and you see that in Mayor of Kingstown.
Where is ‘Mayor of Kingstown’ filmed?
Believe it or not, Mayor of Kingstown is filmed all over Canada, and of course one of the locations is Kingston. They also shot in Brantford, and if you only learn one thing about this town, let it be that Alexander Graham Bell actually invented the telephone there, not in Boston. In a 1906 speech, he said, “the telephone problem was solved, and it was solved at my father’s home,” which was in Brantford.
You obviously cannot film in Canada without spending at least a little time in Toronto. Hamilton, Ontario was also a setting for the show. It’s most likely due to the fact that the local economy thrives under steel and heavy manufacturing industries, a perfect backdrop for the fictional working-class town of Kingstown, Mich.
The series is also a testament to the versatility of Canada and the ways in which it can lend itself to a project that doesn’t even take place there.
What does ONG mean on TikTok? The story behind the viral trend
Another week, another TikTok phrase…
Since its conception in 2016, TikTok has not only become a go-to destination for creative short-form video content, it’s also become a sort of cultural zeitgeist.
Beyond offering a platform for users to share their life hacks, parenting techniques, funny impressions and more, the social site spews out new phrases and trends like there’s no tomorrow.
From “cheugy” and “the CEO of”, to the recent “Adult Swim” challenge – there’s a plethora of language constantly being added to our everyday vocabulary.
The latest addition? ONG.
Here’s exactly what it means and how it’s being used on TikTok.
So, what does “ONG” stand for and what does it mean?
Nope, people aren’t accidentally misspelling “OMG” (Oh my God). “ONG” actually stands for “On God”.
Essentially, it just means you strongly agree with a statement or sentiment – sort of like “I swear to God”. For example, “Sour Patch Kids are the best sweets ONG.”
It’s usually added at the end of a sentence.
Where did the TikTok phrase come from?
A viral clip of 22-year-old social media star Tana Mongeau talking about YouTuber Bryce Hall recently became a meme.
In the video, Tana was discussing the upcoming Youtube vs TikTok boxing match when she was asked whose side she was on.
She replied saying she thought Bryce would win, commenting: “We team Bryce out here. Even the paparazzi’s team Bryce, on God.”
