  • How To Pop A Pimple On Your Own, According To Tips From Dr. Pimple Popper
    Inside producer Celia Skvaril’s video was chatting to Dr. Sanda Lee, also known as Dr. Pimple Popper for their professional advice on how to pop a pimple at home. While Lee doesn’t recommend that people pop their own pimples, pimple popping is a habit that many find difficult to quit. With much of the world staying at home, people don’t see their dermatologists and estheticians regularly and may struggle with an above-average urge to peck at their skin. Lee shared her tips on how best to minimize the risk of scars and further infection from popping your own pimples, such as: For example, try to pop only superficial whiteheads and properly sterilize pimples and tools before and after popping them. Following Lee’s advice, Celia tried to pop her own whitehead at home. More information about Dr. Pimple Popper can be found at:


  • How to include a coronavirus-related layoff on your résumé
    If you’ve been made redundant due to the coronavirus pandemic and you’re looking for a job, you are probably wondering how to explain this on your resume.



Maria Ha, 25, and 31-year-old Dan Lee say they were verbally abused on the street in Kips Bay and are expected to return to China on Sunday by an unknown woman.

The question so many have asked – where is this woman from? And who is she?

Eyewitness News traced her face mask back to a performing arts theater in Woodstock.

Her website had posts from people who claimed to know the suspect and said they would “never speak to her again”.

Multiple sources close to the investigation confirmed to Eyewitness News that it was the suspect.

By Tuesday, she had deleted her social media accounts and several calls and emails to her went unanswered.

Some family members would not bring us in contact with her either. Eyewitness News even tried to reach her at her home.

It turns out she lives near where the incident occurred on Sunday, on 22nd and First Avenue.

She is a neighbor with her victims, but she is no ordinary neighbor. Her name is Maura Moynihan, the daughter of the late Senator Daniel Patrick Moynihan.

She admitted to Eyewitness News on Wednesday that she is the woman featured in the video.

She was spotted at the Moynihan Train Hall unveiling back in January.

In a statement, Moynihan called the dispute a misunderstanding, saying, “It had nothing to do with bias, racism, or anti-Asian American prejudice, as was falsely suggested.”

She says it was an argument about a taxi and denies making racist statements.

“I have devoted most of my life to working with and for Asians, particularly ensuring basic human rights for the Tibetan people in their ongoing struggle against communist China,” said Moynihan.

However, when confronted by the victim’s husband, she did not deny hurling a racist remark.

“Just because she’s done all of these things in the past doesn’t justify what she said,” Lee said.

Moynihan goes on to say she would like to meet with the couple to explain.

“What she said wasn’t an apology. We don’t accept her behavior at all, so I don’t want to meet her,” said Ha. “Why should I meet her?”

“This is extremely hurtful. As for me personally, I have been born in the United States my whole life and it is seriously insulting to be told to leave this country and return to communist China,” said Lee. “I was born here, this is my home.”

Police say the investigation is active and ongoing.
