OPPOSITION TO OBAMA- 
CARE REPEAL GROWS 


PYONGYANG HOLDS 
ANTI-US RALLY 



NIKKI M. MASCALI, REPORTER 


After the immense success of Citi 
Bike, other bike-share companies 
are champing at the bit to put their 
wheels down in New York City. 
One of them is LimeBike, and I 
spoke to co-founder Toby Sun 
about the dockless company's 
rapid growth — and how it 
would like to work with Citi 
Bike to get even more New 
Yorkers driving less and biking 
more, metro.us 


1 A proposal by U.S. Republi¬ 
cans to repeal and replace 
the Obamacare health insur¬ 
ance program suffered serious 
new setbacks within the party, 
when Sen. Ted Cruz expressed his 
opposition and Sen. Susan Collins 
dug in with strong criticisms of 
the legislation. Phil Novack, a 
spokesman for Cruz, confirmed 
that the Republican senator 
said at an event in Texas: "Right 
now, they don't have my vote, 


and I don't think they have 
[Sen.] Mike Lee's vote, either." 
Politico reported that Cruz 
complained that the latest 
Obamacare repeal bill did not 
address his concerns about 
bringing down the costs of 
healthcare. Collins also appeared 
poised to oppose her party's 
latest replacement plan for the 
Affordable Care Act, former 
President Barack Obama's 
signature achievement. 


President Donald Trump 
dialed up the rhetoric 
against North Korea again 
over the weekend, warning the 
country's foreign minister that he 
and leader Kim Jong Un "won't be 
around much longer," as Pyong¬ 
yang staged a major anti-U.S. 
rally. North Korea's Foreign Min¬ 
ister Ri Yong Ho told the United 
Nations General Assembly on 
Saturday that targeting the U.S. 
mainland with its rockets was in¬ 


evitable after "Mr Evil President" 
Trump called Pyongyang's leader 
a "rocket man" on a suicide mis¬ 
sion. "Just heard Foreign Minister 
of North Korea speak at U.N. If he 
echoes thoughts of Little Rocket 
Man, they won't be around much 
longer!" Trump said on Twitter. 
Trump and Kim have traded 
increasingly threatening and per¬ 
sonal insults as Pyongyang races 
toward its goal of developing a 
nuclear-tipped missile.

ANGELA MERKEL 
WINS FOURTH TERM 


Chancellor Angela 
Merkel's conservatives se¬ 
cured a fourth consecutive 
term in office on Sunday in an 
election that brought a far-right 
party into the German parlia¬ 
ment for the first time in more 
than half a century, exit polls 
indicated. After shock results last 
year, from Britain's vote to leave 
the European Union to the elec¬ 
tion of President Donald Trump, 
many look to Merkel to rally a 


bruised liberal Western order 
and lead a post-Brexit Europe. 
Merkel's conservative bloc - her 
Christian Democrats and their 
Bavarian allies, the Christian 
Social Union - won 32.5 percent 
of the vote, making them by far 
the largest parliamentary group, 
according to an exit poll for the 
broadcaster ARD. Their closest 
rivals, the center-left Social 
Democrats, slumped to 20.0 
percent — a new post-war low. 



US AIRSTRIKES KILL 17 
ISIS MILITANTS IN LIBYA 


U.S. airstrikes on an 
Islamic State desert camp in 
Libya killed 17 militants and 
destroyed three vehicles, the U.S. 
military said. U.S. Africa Command 
said in a statement that strikes on 
Friday targeted a camp 150 miles 
southeast of Sirte, a city that was 
once the Islamic State stronghold 
in Libya. The camp was used to 
move fighters in and out of Libya, 
plot attacks and store weapons, 
the statement said. "ISIS and 


al-Qaeda have taken advantage 
of ungoverned spaces in Libya to 
establish sanctuaries for plotting, 
inspiring and directing terror 
attacks," the statement said, using 
an acronym for Islamic State. The 
last known U.S. strike in Libya was 
on Jan. 19, a day before Trump's 
inauguration, when more than 80 
Islamic State militants, some of 
whom were believed to be plot¬ 
ting attacks in Europe, died in U.S. 
airstrikes on camps outside Sirte. 



POLLS 

As the National Foot¬ 
ball League struggles 
to explain this season's 
downturn in viewer 
ratings, 34% of Ameri¬ 
can adults say they are 
less likely to watch an 
NFL game because of 
the growing number 
of protests by players 
on the field.

NFL playeis respond to Donald 
Tramp with more anthem protests 



Days after Presi¬ 
dent Trump called 
for the firing of 
players who kneel 
during the national 
anthem, the NFL 
emerged with a 
political tone. 

JOEPANTORNO 
@joepantorno 

joseph. pantorno® metro, us 

What once was a silent 
form of protest performed 
by Colin Kaepemiclc to ad¬ 
dress police brutality, NFL 
players kneeling for the 
national anthem have tak¬ 
en on a whole new cause. 

The league and Don¬ 
ald Trump are virtually at 
war after the president’s 
comments over the past 
few days. And players 
around the NFL took ac¬ 
tion on Sunday. 


At a rally on Friday 
night for Senator Luther 
Strange in Huntsville, AL, 
Trump got on the topic 
of players around the NFL 
kneeling for the anthem 
shortly after he rescinded 
an invitation to the White 
House for the 2017 NBA 
champion Golden State 
Warriors: “Wouldn’t you 
love to see one of these NFL 
owners, when somebody 
disrespects our flag, to say, 
‘Get that son of a bitch off 
the field right now, out, 
he’s fired,”’ he said. 

On Sunday morning, 
he doubled down on his 
comments, tweeting for 
fan support: “If NFL fans 
refuse to go to games until 
players stop disrespecting 
our Flag & Country, you 
will see change take place 
fast. Fire or suspend!” 

Countless players fired 
right back on social me¬ 
dia; including Green Bay 
Packers tight end Martel- 


lus Bennett tweeting that 
he was “OK with being 
fired for what I believe in.” 

Plenty of owners also 
came forward, includ¬ 
ing New England Patri¬ 
ots owner and friend of 
Trump Robert Kraft, who 


admitted he was “deeply 
disappointed by the tone 
of the comments made by 
the President.” 

But the real rebuttal 
began at 9 a.m. ET with 
the Jacksonville Jaguars 
and Baltimore Ravens 


getting the Sunday por¬ 
tion of Week 3 in London, 
England. Members of both 
teams knelt or locked 
arms in a sign of unity, 
including Jaguars owner 
Shahid iQian. 

In Chicago, Pittsburgh 


Steelers head coach Mike 
Tomlin alerted CBS that 
his team would not leave 
the locker room for pre¬ 
game festivities, stating 
that “we’re not going to 
play politics.” 

However left tackle 
Alejandro Villanueva, 
who served in the Army, 
stood near the tunnel 
with his hand over his 
heart. 

Teams around the 
league followed suit by ei¬ 
ther standing with arms 
linked, displaying raised 
fists or kneeling. 

“[I am] 

OK with 
being fired 
for what I 
believe in ” 

Martellus Bennett, on 
Twitter

Sometimes, even the 
reddest meat goes 
rancid. Sometimes, even 
the cheapest political 
ploy can blow up in 
your hands. 

So it was with 
Donald Trump’s racially 
coded pandering this 
weekend against black 
professional athletes 
who chose to take a 
knee as the national 
anthem was played. 

Trump launched his 
latest vulgar tirade in 
northern Alabama on 
Friday night: “Wouldn’t 
you love to see one of 
these NFL owners, when 
somebody disrespects 
our flag, to say, ‘Get 
that son of a bitch off 
the field right now. He 
is fired. He’s fired.’” The 
athletes’ silent protests, 
the president roared, 
are a “total disrespect 
of our heritage, a total 
disrespect of everything

“Our” heritage? 
Everything that “we” 
stand for? At a Repub¬ 
lican rally in Alabama! 

If that’s not racially di¬ 
visive language, I don’t 
know what is. 

Trump followed up 
with a weekend-long 
Twitter storm. After dis- 
inviting the NBA’s Gold¬ 
en State Warriors’ Steph 
Curry from the White 
House, the president 
doubled-down against 
the football league: “If a 
player wants the privi¬ 
lege of making millions 
of dollars in the NFL, or 
other leagues, he or she 
should not be allowed 
to disrespect our Great 
American Flag (or Coun¬ 
try) and should stand for 
the National Anthem. If 
not, YOU’RE FIRED. Find 
something else to do!” 

“Privilege ... disre¬ 
spect ... not be allowed 
... our flag.” Yes, this 
was definitely the same 
president who blamed 
“many sides” for the 
white supremacist vio¬ 
lence in Charlottesville.

Just because a player 
earns a lot of money 
means he forfeits his 
right to think, speak or 
kneel? 

But here’s the cheery 
part, the part that 
clearly caught the 
president by surprise: 
All Trump’s hostility 
backfired on him. NFL 
Commissioner Roger 
Goodell called the presi¬ 
dent “divisive.” Trump’s 
good pal, Patriots owner 
Robert Kraft, said he was 
“deeply disappointed” 
in the president. The 32 
team owners all stood 
firmly by their guys. 

Even people who 
hated pro football 
were suddenly tuning 
in on Sunday, wonder¬ 
ing how many other 
players would take a 
knee before the game. 

A bunch of “privileged” 
and “disrespectful” ath¬ 
letes had just shown the 
president what America 
actually means.

LimeBike rides its national growth 
with attention on New York City 


“We respect what Citi 
Bike has done, and we 
would be very happy 
to cooperate with them 
in the city,” co-founder 
Toby Sun said. 



With Citi Bike nearing 
50 million total rides since 
its 2013 launch, it’s safe 


to say that New Yorkers 
love cycling around town. 
And with the success of 
the program, other bilce- 
shares are now champ¬ 
ing at the bit to get their 
wheels on the ground. 

Among them are Spin, 


which last month tried to 
hold a pop-up demonstra¬ 
tion in the Roclcaways, 
and LimeBike, which has 
been in talks with officials 
to bring its lime-green bi¬ 
cycles to town, co-founder 
Toby Sun told Metro.

“We’re thrilled to 
have the potential op¬ 
portunity to serve New 
York,” he said. “We’ve 
been doing a lot of com¬ 
munication with city offi¬ 
cials, the Department of 
Transportation and also 
the people, so it’s not just 
getting the city on board 
but the community and 
local businesses.” 

Since it was founded 
in San Mateo, California, 
in January, LimeBike has 
rapidly expanded from its 
first location on the cam¬ 
pus of the University of 
North Carolina at Greens¬ 
boro in June to serve 17 
markets across the coun¬ 
try, including nine cities 
and eight colleges. 

“So far we’ve done 
400,000 trips in total in 
three months and over 
200,000 users registered, 
and we see over 13,000 
trips a day,” Sun said. 

It launched in its first 
major East Coast market, 
Washington, D.C., last 
Thursday, and Sun hopes 
New York isn’t too far 
behind — if approved by 
city officials. 

“I don’t know the exact 
date,” he said. “We hope 
as soon as possible, but 
we’re patient. When we 
go into a new market, we 
make sure the stakehold¬ 
ers, the users and the com¬ 
munity see what’s coming 
and work together to not 
ruin a good program by 
not mismanaging that.” 

The contract Motivate, 
the company that oper¬ 
ates Citi Bike, has with the 
city gives it exclusivity for 
the first two phases of its 
expansion, which will be 
completed by yearend. 

Beyond this year, “the 
DOT is evaluating the vi¬ 
ability of the newest gen¬ 


eration of bilce-sharing 
technology in order to 
expand the system,” a 
representative told Met¬ 
ro. “This includes meet¬ 
ing with the industry, 
though our immediate 
focus remains the con¬ 
tinued expansion of [Citi 
Bike’s] Phase II, which be¬ 
gan this month.” 

Unlike Citi Bike, which 
must be picked up and re¬ 
turned at one of its 600 
docking stations in Man¬ 
hattan, Brooklyn, Queens 
and Jersey City, LimeBike 
is dockless, meaning us¬ 
ers can pick up and drop 
off the bicycles at just 
about any bike rack or 
designated area — with 
no additional costs to the 
city or taxpayers. 

After entering their 
credit card info into Lime- 
Bike’s iOS or Android app, 
riders can locate nearby 
bicycles and scan its QR 
code or enter its plate 
number to unlock it. After 
the ride, which costs $1 
each or $0.50 for 30 min¬ 
utes for students with a 
valid .edu email, they can 
then leave the bike at an 
appropriate location and 
press the lock on the back 
wheel to end their trip. 

The company also of¬ 
fers LimePrime, which 
gives 100 rides for $29.95 
per month or $14.95 for 
students. 

Comparatively, Citi 
Bike offers a $12 day pass 
with 24-hour access and 
a three-day, 72-hour pass 
for $24. Both feature un¬ 
limited 30-minute rides, 
with each additional 15 
minutes an extra $4. An¬ 
nual membership is $163 
and includes the first 45 
minutes of each ride. 
Each additional 15 min¬ 
utes is $2.50. 



LimeBike serves 17 markets across the country, including nine cities and eight 
college campuses, and hopes to add New York City soon, provided

THE MISSING HUDSON YARDS 7-TRAIN 
INTERMEDIATE SUBWAY STATION 


The public, tran¬ 
sit riders, transit 
advocacy groups 
and the media were 
unaware of a key 
MTA senior man¬ 
agement decision. 

There is more to the 
second anniversary for 
Metropolitan Transpor¬ 
tation Authority New 
York City Transit start¬ 
ing service on the No. 7 
subway line to the new 
34th Street-11th Ave 
Hudson Yards station in 
September 2015 that few 
remember. 

The original cost of 
the overall project was 
$2.1 billion and ended up 
at $2.4 billion not count¬ 
ing the subway station 
that had to be dropped 
from the original scope 
of work along with 
additional subway cars 
necessary to provide 
opening day service for 
transit riders. Neither 
NYC nor the MTA could 
find $500 million to cover 
the proposed new inter¬ 
mediate subway station 
to be built at 10th Avenue 
and 41st Street. 

This station was part 
of the original project. 
One trick used by transit 
managers to complete 
any project within bud¬ 
get, is to drop a portion 
of the original work. 

This saves the necessary 
dollars which were not 
available to deliver 
100 percent of what 
was originally promised. 
Deletion of this second 
station kept the project 
cost at $2.4 billion rather 
than $2.9 billion. 

Construction started 
in 2007 with a planned 
completion date of 
December 2013. The 
anticipated first day of

was in the planning 
stage several years prior 
to 2007. They instructed 
staff deliberately not 
to follow the federal 
National Environmental 
Protection Act process 
or enter the Federal 
Transit Administration 
New Starts process. The 
MTA did not want to go 
after New Starts fund¬

would have had this 
project compete against 
both the Long Island Rail

and NYC Transit Phase

These funds could have 
convinced the Federal

to provide $500 million 
in federal funding that 
would have paid for the

Without construction

“Demand Soars For Innovative Arthritis Treatment FD: 

NYC Pain MD doctors offer powerful, cutting-edge arthritis treatment... prepares for over 


By Matt Edgar 

America s Health Writer 

Arthritis sufferers can’t get it fast enough 
and doctors offering it can’t keep up with 
the demand. “Results are better than even I 
anticipated” noted one of the treating docs 
at the NY Pain MD Center for Non-Surgical 
Medical Relief Of Spine And Joint Pain with 
two locations right here in NYC. 

He was referring to their innovative ar¬ 
thritis treatment program featuring Advanced 
Image-guided “Visco-Supplementation” at 
the conveniently located clinics.. 

“The response continues to be over¬ 
whelming. Once patients found out there was 
an FDA cleared, doctor-administered arthritis 
treatment that actually works - without the 
side effects of oral pain pills or risks of re¬ 
placement surgery - and has enough scientific 
research that it is covered by many insur¬ 
ances and even Part B medicare - the offices 
continue to be deluged with arthritis pain 
sufferers wanting to find if they,too, can be 
helped. And newer research indicates it can 
help hips,ankles and shoulders as well”. 

What Is This 

Treatment And How Does It Work? 

If you are suffering with knee (or other 
joint) arthritis and pain, you are not alone. 
Degenerative joint disease or “arthritis” af¬ 
fects 21 mil-lion Americans and typically 
involves the weight bearing joints - like your 
knees. According to the American College 
of Rheumatology, nearly 70% of people over 
the age of 70 have x-ray evidence of the dis¬ 
ease (and the ranks of much younger victims 
of this progressive disorder continue to grow 
significantly). 

The worst thing is: Arthritis can be dev¬ 
astating. The pain can keep you up at night and 
make getting out 
of bed and moving 
around a daunting 
task. The pain and 
stiffness can suck 
all the happiness 
and joy right out of 
your life 

And up until 
now, treatment op¬ 
tions have not been 
that good.. .or that 
appealing to most 
patients. The basic 
protocol has been a 
steady diet of toxic 
pain pills until your joints completely wear out 
and then it’s time to surgically replace the knee 
joint. 


But Now Things Have Changed 

Osteoarthritis is a joint disease that 
mostly affects the cartilage. Cartilages the 
tissue that covers the ends on bones in a 
joint. When healthy, cartilage allows bones 
to glide smoothly over one another and acts 
as a shock absorber. Your“ normal” knee 
also contains a small amount of fluid called 
synovial fluid. This synovial fluid is a thick, 
gel-like solution that cushions and lubricates 
the joint-much like oil lubricates the engine 
of your car. 

In osteoarthritis, the synovial fluid loses 
it’s lubricating properties and “dries up” 
allowing the cartilage to break down and 
wear away. This is like running your car with 
little or no oil. Now as you attempt to use 
your knee(s), there is not enough lubrication 
causing the bones to grind together resulting 
in pain, swelling, stiffness and the joint 
continues to wear out. This is a vicious cycle 
and can lead to bone-on-bone rubbing and 
excruciating pain. Pain pills do NOT lubri¬ 
cate the joint or fix the problem. They simply 
mask the pain so you do not feel the pain as 
your joints continue to deteriorate. The even¬ 
tual repercussions of this are obvious. 

“Visco” Is Very Different 

And here is why: It contains hyaluronate, 
one of the two natural lubricating agents 
found in your own synovial fluid. Visco¬ 
supplementation is precisely introduced 
directly in to your knee joint in a series of 3-5 
treatments (depending on severity) over a 4 
to 6 week period. This instantly cushions the 
joint, reduces friction and allows greater mo¬ 
tion with less pain or no pain at all in some 
cases. 

This treatment not only 
lubricates the joint, but it acts 
as a shock absorber helping 
reduce grinding, inflammation 
and pain. Here’s something 
very important to consider: 
Even though these lubricating 
medicines are non-toxic natural 
substances and are NOT con¬ 
sidered a drug, it is NOT some¬ 
thing you can get at your local 
health food store. It is scientifi¬ 
cally researched and produced 
by pharmaceutical companies, 
FDA cleared and can ONLY be 
administered by a qualified Doctor. 


What’s Results Can You Expect? 

According to one developers and manu¬ 
facturers of these special gel medicines ... 

“A course of treatment -will relieve pain in 
a majority of patients for 6 months without 
the safety concerns of non-steroidal anti-in¬ 
flammatory drug (NS AID) therapy. In many 
patients, the effect is likely to last even longer 
than 6 months.’’And the best part is: Since 
these gel lubricants are natural substances; 
they can be used over and re over when nec¬ 
essary without risk. If it works for you, you 
may be able to look forward to years with 
less pain. 

Who Should Consider Viscosupplementa¬ 
tion... Where Can You Get It And...When 
Should You Start? 

You should certainly consider The NY 
Pain MD method if you have been diag¬ 
nosed with knee arthritis or told you need 
a knee replacement. If you have not been 
diagnosed with arthritis but have either knee 
pain, stiffness, swelling, difficulty walking or 
climbing stairs or loss of motion in the knee - 
you should have an examination to determine 
what the cause of your problem is. If you 
have any of those issues mentioned, there is 
a very good chance you already have-or are 
starting to get arthritis. 

Very Important - Do Not Wait - Here’s 
Why... 

Studies indicate that if the arthritis is 
caught soon enough, the cushioning effect 
of the treatments c may be able to help the 
knee heal and possibly, slow the arthritis 
thus help avoid joint replacement surgery. In 
other words, the sooner you start - the better. 
Does the procedure hurt? A local anesthetic 
is given to numb the area and the procedure 
is virtually painless. Most patients say it feels 
like nothing more than a slight“pinching” 
sensation... that’s it. 

Why Treatments At NYC Pain MD Are So 
Extremely Precise 

Our doctors are particularly well-trained 
in a state-of-the-art digital fluoroscopic imag¬ 
ing - also known at Precision Arthritis Target¬ 
ing - which allows them to see directly inside 
the joint during the procedure and get the 
natural cushioning medicine exactly where 
it needs to go. This makes sure treatments 
have the best possibility for maximum suc¬ 
cess. This is crucial because studies indicate 
that when doing these types of procedures 
- without digital imaging - it can miss the

But There Is A Problem... 

Even though this advanced treatment can 
help many patients, it is not a wonder cure or 
a magic wand. It does not help everyone. For 
that reason, every potential patient should have

cepted if we feel you are most likely to get the 
pain relief and outcome you are looking for. 

That’s why NY Pain MD would like

ing coordinator answers the phone, let them 
know you want to schedule a “ NY Pain MD

and schedule you for our first time available. 
Dur-ing this time you can get all of your 
questions answered in a warm, friendly 
environment and begin to find out if the NY 
Pain MD protocol is right for you. But if you 
would like to do this, you should call right now. 
The demand for this procedure has been 
overwhelming with hun-dreds calling weekly . 
Since our doctors cannot possible screen 
everyone and we always make sure to give 
every single patient the personal attention they 
deserve, we have to limit these encounter. 
Therefore, the number of No-Cost, 



No Obligation screenings is limited to just 20. 
But... just imagine how it would feel to have 
much, if not all, of your knee pain finally 
gone. Imagine going to bed and being able to 
sleep through the entire night - and waking 
up refreshed and energized... ready to take 
on the brand new day ... without the arthritis 
pain that’s been terrorizing you and ruining 
your life. And imagine finally knowing you 
have a treatment to manage the pain caused

have to just “imagine” any more... because 
our specialized medical regimen could be the 
answer you’ve been looking for. If you’d like

A RUSSIAN HOAX? HARDLY... 


President Trump is not 
fond of shaking hands, 
claims his political rallies 
are always “yuge,” and 
apparently believes he re¬ 
ally won die popular vote 
despite overwhelming evi¬ 
dence to the contrary. And 
in that same iconoclastic 
way, he is once again 
raging about the “hoax” 
of Russian interference in 
the U.S. election. Oh sure, 
the FBI, the CIA and the 
NSA all say the Kremlin 
was leaning on the scales 
to help Trump and to hurt 
Hillary Clinton. And yes, 
plenty of independent 
intelligence analysts 
believe those assessments. 
Still, the president insists 
Clinton lost entirely 
because she ran a bad race 
and he ran a better one; 
the Russians had nothing 
to do with it. 

But it looks like most 
Americans now think 
he’s wrong. 

A new CNN poll by 
SSRS found 54 per¬ 
cent of those surveyed 
believe “it’s very or 
somewhat likely that... 
Russia-backed content on 
Facebook or other social 
media affected the 2016 


TOM 

FOREMAN 



presidential vote.” As you 
might expect, the partisan 
divide is deep. Repub¬ 
licans are far, far more 
skeptical than Democrats. 
But independents tilt 
toward the Dems on this 
one, with 55 percent 
accepting the idea of 
Russian meddling. While 
“affected” is admittedly a 
vague word, the implica¬ 
tion is clear: They don’t 
believe claims that this is 
all some nefarious hoax 
against Donald Trump 
perpetrated by political 
opponents, the news me¬ 


dia or anyone else ... for 
example, Kim Jong Un. 

To be clear, even the 
Democrats have a lot of 
doubts about whether 
any voters changed their 
minds about whom to 
back based on these 
shenanigans. Clinton 
thinks Team Trump was 
colluding with the Mos¬ 
cow crowd, but whether 
she would have won 
without Russian meddling 
is unknowable. Even if 
you could interview each 
of the 128,838,341 people 
who voted (take your time 
... I’ll wait) they would all 
have to be honest about 
their motivations — and 
many would candidly not 
know why they finally 
voted as they did. 

But grappling with 
and investigating the Rus¬ 
sian activity is not about 
arguing, delegitimizing or 
litigating the past election. 
It is about securing the 
future of our electoral 
process. And whether 
the president agrees or 
not, most of us think 
that means looking very 
closely at how the Rus¬ 
sians got in — and how 
we can keep them out.

City unveils Bronx Point, 
a mixed-use South Bronx 
waterfront destination 




Planes sit on the runway at John F. Kennedy International Airport on June 5 , 
2017, in New York City, getty images 


JFK Airport ranks low on 
passenger satisfaction, 
according to a new report 


The long-vacant 
site on the Harlem 
River will house 
the Universal 
Hip-Hop Museum, 
green space, a food 
and beverage hall, 
affordable housing 
and more. 



A long-vacant tract of 
land along the Harlem 
River in the South Bronx 
is on its way to becom¬ 
ing a mixed-use desti¬ 
nation, the New York 
City Economic Develop¬ 
ment Corporation an¬ 
nounced Friday. 

Known as Bronx 
Point, the site will be 
home to the Universal 
Hip-Hop Museum, pub¬ 
lic green space, a multi¬ 
plex theater, a food and 
beverage hall curated by 
Anna Castellani of Forag¬ 
ers Markets that will fea¬ 
ture Bronx-based small 
food vendors, education 
space, more than 600 
units of affordable hous¬ 
ing and more. 

Bronx Point will be 
located in the Lower 
Concourse neighbor¬ 
hood near Mill Pond 


Park, the 145th Street 
Bridge to Harlem, Bronx 
Terminal Market and 
Yankee Stadium. 

“Over the last two 
years, NYCEDC has 
worked with the South 
Bronx community to 
address the area’s most 
pressing needs: afford¬ 
able housing and water¬ 
front access,” NYCEDC 
President and CEO James 
Patchett said in a state¬ 
ment. “Today, we are 
excited to announce the 
activation of this long- 


vacant waterfront site 
with high-quality pub¬ 
lic open space, over 600 
units of permanently 
affordable housing and 
a range of cultural facili¬ 
ties that pay homage to 
the boogie down Bronx.” 

The winning proposal 
for Bronx Point is a joint 
venture between L+M 
Development Partners 
and Type A Projects. 

More than 100 jobs 
are expected to be added 
to the South Bronx when 
the destination opens. 


and its first phase will 
create more than 900 
construction jobs. Hire- 
NYC, an NYCEDC work¬ 
force program, will help 
connect residents to the 
available opportunities. 

There is no ETA as 
to when Bronx Point 
will open, but it is cur¬ 
rently in the public land 
use review process and 
has been approved by 
Community Board 4, 
Borough President Ru¬ 
ben Diaz Jr. and the City 
Planning Commission. 


If you’ve traveled through 
Logan Airport in Boston 
or JFK in New York City 
lately and had a less- 
than-thrilling experience, 
you’re not alone. 

A new report from 
J.D. Power ranked the two 
large Northeast airports 
near the bottom for over¬ 
all passenger satisfaction. 

The 2017 North 
America Airport Satisfac¬ 
tion Study ranks traveler 
satisfaction with “mega,” 
large and medium 
airports on six factors: ter¬ 
minal facilities, airport ac¬ 
cessibility, security check, 
baggage claim, check-in 
and baggage check, food, 
beverage and retail. 

Out of 18 “mega” air¬ 
ports, meaning those that 
handle more than 32.5 
million annual passen¬ 
gers, Boston Logan came 
in at 14 and JFK at 15. 

The report scored each 
airport out of 850 points 
determining overall satis¬ 
faction; Logan earned 733 


and JFK earned 727. 

Coming in worse than 
Boston and New York 
were Chicago’s O’Hare 
International Airport, 

Los Angeles International 
Airport and, in last place, 
Newark Liberty Interna¬ 
tional Airport. The top 
spot for satisfaction across 
mega airports went to 
Orlando International Air¬ 
port with a score of 778. 

In the large airport 
category, John Wayne 
Airport in Orange 
County ranked first and 
LaGuardia in New York 
City landed last. In the 
small airport category, 
Sacramento International 
Airport took the top spot 
and Bradley International 
Airport in Connecticut 
landed on the bottom. 

Though Boston and 
New York are low on 
the list, there’s still good 
news: Overall passenger 
satisfaction has reached 
an all-time high, the 
report found, kristin toussaint

Pablo Escobar’s brother orders Netflix not to 
shoot series in Colombia after ‘Narcos’ murder 


Pablo Escobar’s brother, 
Robert De Jesus Escobar 
Gaviria, has issued 
an ominous warning 
to Netflix, telling the 
company to keep out of 
Colombia because it is 
too dangerous. 

The 71-year-old made 
these comments in the 
wake of the death of 
Carlos Munoz Portal, a 
location manager that 
was looking for places 
to shoot the upcoming 
new season of “Narcos.” 
After being asked whether 
Colombia and Mexico 
were too dangerous for 
Hollywood to use as loca¬ 
tions, Gaviria insisted that 
studios should only make 
content about him or his 
brother after their request 


is granted by Escobar Inc. 

“I don’t want Netflix or 
any other film produc¬ 
tion company to film any 
movies in Medellin or 
Colombia that relates to 
me or my brother, Pablo, 
without authorization 
from Escobar Inc. It is 
very dangerous. Especially 
without our blessing. 

This is my country,” he 
declared. 

The Hollywood 
Reporter also asked 
Gaviria what precautions 
and extra security mea¬ 
sures “Narcos” 
could implement to keep 
their crew safe, to which 
he responded, “You 
have to eliminate all 
threats. When I was 
walking in the jungle 



Netflix chronicles the rise of the cocaine trade in Colombia and the gripping 
real-life stories of drug kingpins of the late '80s in "Narcos." netflix

Queens landlord found dead after 
Ozone Park fire 

A Queens landlord is dead after a 
fire began in the basement where 
he was sleeping. 

First responders were called 
at 236 a.m. on Sunday to an Ozone 
Park home where firefighters were 
able to control the blaze in a matter 
of hours, but Mohinvei Singh, 68 , 
didn't make it to safety, his body 
having been found inside the 
building. 

"I think they were not able to 
see where he was sleeping," said 
resident Harish Kumari to CBS 2 . 
"The wife came out, but she 


couldn't find him. So, we were 
asking her where he is, she said he's 
somewhere in there, we can't see, 
it's all smoke." 

The blaze awoke two first-floor 
tenants who said smoke began to 
pour into their apartment. 

"I was sleeping, she woke 
me up, it was all smoky so we just 
rushed downstairs," said tenant 
Harish Kumari to ABC 7, referring 
to the other resident. "I didn't know 
what to do so I just put my flip flops 
on and came out.a" 

Authorities are still investigat¬ 
ing what caused the fire. 

AMY RUSSO 



A Sunday morning fire left one person dead in Ozone Park, billy becerra/metro 


one day, I had a bag with 
$2 million in $100 bills. 
The army was searching 
for me and Pablo at this 
time. Suddenly, we are 
being shot at.” 

“Both me and Pablo, 
along with a few secu¬ 
rity people, start running 
toward a small channel 


of water, we swim away. 
This was all done without 
guns. If you have the intel¬ 
lect, you don’t need to use 
weapons. If not, you have 
to. In this case, Netflix 
should provide hitmen to 
their people as security.” 

Gaviria also previously 
demanded $1 billion from 


Netflix in 2016 because 
they’d used Pablo Escobar’s 
likeness and stray without 
permission from the 
family. Gaviria’s update on 
the legal dispute was also 
threatening, because even 
though he admitted that 
the two parties are still in 
discussions about the case, 


he added, “If we don’t re¬ 
ceive it, we will close their 
little show.” 

Even though “Narcos” 
Season 4 has already 
been confirmed, Netflix 
still hasn’t announced its 
release date. If Gaviria has 
his way, they never will.

Let ‘The 


Opposition’ 

Commence 


“Daily Show” alum 
Jordan Klepper and 
his team of citizen 
journalists are ready to 
take on late night TV. 

MICHELLE BYRON 
@MetroNewYork 

letters@metro.us 


Jordan Klepper’s desk 
has a prop vintage 
microphone, reminis¬ 
cent of the McCarthy 
era, and stacks of ear¬ 
marked print-outs that 
hint at “crazed conspir¬ 
acy theorist.” The back¬ 
ground of the set for his 
new late-night show, 


“The Opposition with 
Jordan Klepper,” which 
airs Sept. 25, looks very 
much like the barrel of 
a gun. Which is decid¬ 
edly on-brand for this 
show. 

The studio, situated 
between a rundown 
souvenir shop and a sa¬ 
lon called Nail & Stuff, 
is located on the second 
floor in the Grand Ball¬ 
room, an anachronistic 
name for a space which 
now opens up onto a li¬ 
noleum tiled, security- 
enforced holding room, 
complete with metal 
folding chairs. 

But through the 
cattle-herding-inspired 


audience-holding room 
is a happy surprise — a 
sleek, spacious, set with 
a thoughtful design — 
a very happy surprise. 
(According to one Com¬ 
edy Central representa¬ 
tive, the studio was last 
home to Food Network’s 
Worst Cooks in Ameri¬ 
ca, and Klepper’s team 
had to work hard to up¬ 
grade not only the look 
of the studio, but also 
the smell.) 

A former “Daily 
Show” correspondent, 
Jordan Klepper, 38, de¬ 
scribes how the idea for 
the show spawned from 
his work interviewing 
Trump supporters at

rallies during the 2016 
election. He became 
fascinated with where 
these supporters were 
getting their informa¬ 
tion, and what exactly 
was defining their 
worldview. 

Turns out it wasn’t 
traditional news. 

“[There are] other sourc¬ 
es like InfoWars, Bre- 
itbart, the Blaze, inter¬ 
net sources, Faceboolc 
feeds,” he said. “Ways in 
which they could go into 
the internet and get the 
stories that they wanted 
fed back to them.” 

He found that those 
nontraditional outlets 
were fueling the alt- 
right landscape. And 
naturally, he wanted to 
shed light on this arena 
through comedy. The 
Opposition intends to 
answer the question, 
“What if an alt-right, 


anti-mainstream oppor¬ 
tunist was given a late 
night talk show?” 

Before you write off 
Klepper’s induction into 
the white-man-hosting- 
another-late-night-show 
hall of fame, the series 
promises a clear idea 
of how it will separate 
itself from the ever-ex¬ 
panding buffet of satiri¬ 
cal comedy shows. Its 
cast of characters will 
be sure to entertain, 
subvert, and hopefully 
enlighten their audi¬ 
ences. 

And that’s perhaps 
the most exciting as¬ 
pect of the series: The 
diverse talent represent¬ 
ed in the cast of “citizen 
journalists.” Hailing 
from improv and sketch 
comedy backgrounds, 
Tim Baltz, Kobi Libii 
and Nicole Thurman 
(all from Second City) 


will be joined by Laura 
Grey, Josh Sharp, and 
Aaron Jackson (hailing 
from Upright Citizens 
Brigade). Each citizen 
journalist will bring 
a different archetype 
from the alt-right to 
life: from fame-hungry 
provocateurs to thrill- 
seekers to beta-alpha 
males (a term delight¬ 
fully coined by Baltz). 

TL;DR: If you like 
laughing as the world 
burns, if you like Klep¬ 
per’s work on “The 
Daily Show” and want 
to see his character en¬ 
hanced with an bigger 
blind spot, “a dash of 
paranoia and a lot of 
overconfidence,” hold 
onto your guns and/or 
pride flags and get thee 
ready for “The Opposi¬ 
tion.” Maybe it’s just 
what our country needs 
right now.

Harness your ADD 
and ADHD so you can 
kill it professionally. 



PAT KING 
@MetroNewYork 

ietters@metro.us 


Hyperactive disorders like 
ADD and ADHD have car¬ 
ried complicated stigmas. 
If a child is labeled with 
one of these syndromes, 
it generally brands them 
as the uncontrollable spaz 
who disrupts classrooms 
and pays no mind to the 
benefits of having a never- 
ending well of energy. 

It’s a narrative that 
needs some reshaping, 
and that is exactly what 
entrepreneur Peter Shank- 
man has been doing with 
his popular podcast, Faster 
Than Normal. He has has 
set out to help people 
understand that both of 
these disorders “are a gift, 
not a curse.” The success 
of the podcast has allowed 
him to write “Faster Than 
Normal: Turbocharge 

Your Focus Productivity 
and Success With the Se¬ 
crets of the ADHD Brain,” 
a book filled with advice 
for those who need it. 

“When I was growing 
up in the 70s and the ’80s, 
I was a public school New 
York City Kid and ADHD 
didn’t exist,” remembers 
Shankman. “It was ‘sit 


down, you’re disrupting 
the classroom.’” 

It’s a story many who 
have struggled with hy¬ 
peractivity understand. 
And those who are just 
now joining the work¬ 
force have always lived 
with a negative attitude 
toward their Roadrunner- 
style attention spans. 

“My weird quirks and 
the things that drove my 
mom crazy were ways of 
self-medicating,” Shank- 
man says. “I was the class 
clown, and what I was do¬ 
ing was working toward 
getting the adrenaline or 
serotonin that my brain 
craves but doesn’t get be¬ 
cause of ADHD.” 

He believes those who 
view hyperactivity as a 
detriment do not see it as 
the superpower it really 
is. “We can hyper-focus 
sharp enough to melt 
steel,” he says, and with 
all of his success, it’s hard 
to disagree with him. 

But with an overac¬ 
tive mind, you run the 
risk of losing productiv¬ 
ity or worse, developing 
habits that could derail 
your life if they are not 
corrected. For Shankman, 
the ground rules he has 
set for himself are “eating 
cleanly” and cutting alco¬ 
hol out of his life. 

“You have to under¬ 
stand what your triggers 
are. That’s why I don’t 


drink, because I don’t have 
one drink,” says Shank¬ 
man. “I tell people I have 
two speeds: ‘namaste’ and 
‘I’ll cut a b—.’” 

So what advice does he 
have for people who may 
need to harness their wild 
energy in a constructive 
way? He believes that by 
depleting your brain of 
its frantic energy you can 
clean your slate and hone 
your razor-sharp focus. 

“Early morning exer¬ 
cise for me is a given. I 
have to do it,” he explains. 
But with more monoto¬ 
nous situations, he has 
other effective methods. 
“Before I go into a boring 
meeting I don’t want to 
attend,” he says, “I’ll walk 
up the stairs, I’ll do 20 
jumping jacks, anything 
to alter that brain chem¬ 
istry.” 

Shankman believes 
his book is not only for 
people with hyperactivity 
disorders but for “regular 
people who want to get 
four hours of their day 
back for productivity.” By 
harnessing your restless 
energy, you can actualize 
your creativity and crush 
it professionally. Don’t 
believe him? That’s how 
he wrote this book. “This 
book,” he says, “was writ¬ 
ten in two round trips to 
Asia in its entirety.” With 
results like that, who says 
you need to “sit down”?

The best ways to use 
your driver’s license 
to make money 


Clean out your 
backseat. It’s time to 
rake in some cash. 



PATRICK KING 
@MetroNewYork 

Patrick. king@metro. us 


Not everyone thinks of 
earning their driver’s 
license as nailing a job 
interview. But with the 
introduction of what 
seems like countless 
ride apps like Uber and 
Lyft, is it really that far 
off? All you need is four 
wheels and a dream. So 
what are the best ways to 
make money with only a 
driver’s license? 

If you want to go the 
route of becoming a cer¬ 
tified taxi driver, the pro¬ 
cess may be harder than 
you would have imagined. 
According to the DMV, 
you will need to provide a 
laundry list of documents 


such as a criminal back¬ 
ground check, a driver’s 
history report and proof 
of residency or U.S. citi¬ 
zenship. Some cab compa¬ 
nies may even charge you 
certain fees to join their 
team as well as renting a 
car from the company if 
you do not have your own. 

So how much money 
can you expect to make 
working at one of these 
cab companies? Accord¬ 
ing to a study from the 
Bureau of Labor Statis¬ 
tics, the “median annual 
wage for taxi drivers and 
chauffeurs was $24,300 
in May 2016,” with the 
“lowest 10 percent earn¬ 
ing less than $18,250, 
and the highest 10 per¬ 
cent earning more than 
$38,500.” For some, this 
can be too much of a 
commitment for the pay. 

I spoke with Jayme 
Gonzalez, a 32-year-old 


who does product de¬ 
velopment and release 
planning at Sony Music, 
who decided to start 
driving for Uber around 
Westchester County, New 
York, for a little extra 
cash on the weekends. 

“It seemed like a great 
way to make extra cash 
without having an actual 
time commitment,” says 
Gonzalez. “Having a ‘9-5’ 
makes it tough to want to 
pick up an actual second 
gig so this allows me to 
use my time as I like.” 

So how hard is it to 
get approved to drive for 
Uber? “It was supereasy,” 
he says. “There are very 
few barriers to entry. 
You need to pass a back¬ 
ground check, have a 
clean license and a four- 
door car, 2002 or newer.” 

Gonzalez says he gen¬ 
erally likes to work one 
full day during the week¬ 



end and picks up rides 
when he has the time dur¬ 
ing the workweek. 

“It’s allowed me to just 
have some extra cash in 
my pockets for all sorts of 
random things,” he says, 
“I’m getting married in 
a few months so it helps 
there. I own a home, so it 
helps there as well.” So is 
this a job he sees himself 
sticking with? 

“Long-term, I see me 
doing it and having it go¬ 
ing straight to savings,” 
he says. “It’s me turning 
idle time into money 
while getting to knock¬ 
out my weekly podcast 
and new music releases. 
No complaints here!”

61-yard boot lifts 
Eagles to dramatic 
walk-off win. 

d JOE PANTORNO 
(ajoePantorno 

joseph. pantorno@metro.us 

It’s gone from bad to 
worse for the New York 
Giants. 

A 61-yard field goal 
as time expired from 
rookie Jake Elliott lifted 
the Philadelphia Eagles 
to 27-24 win on Sunday 
afternoon at Lincoln 
Financial Field to rel¬ 
egate Big Blue to an 0-3 
record this season. 

The hosts were set up 



for the win by a 28-yard 
punt by Brad Wing with 
19 seconds remaining 
after the Giants were 
unable to pick up a first 
down to at least force 
overtime. Carson Wen¬ 
tz’s 19-yard completion 
to Alshon Jeffery with 
one second left set up the 
dramatics. 

It spoiled what was 
the Giants’ best offensive 
effort of the season as 
Eli Manning passed for 
366 yards and two touch¬ 
downs, both of which 
went to Odell Beckham 
Jr., who willed the Giants 
to a big fourth quarter, 
one in which they scored 
all of their points in to 
temporarily overturn a 
14-0 deficit. 

Beckham recorded 
79 yards while Sterling 
Shepard led all receiv¬ 
ers with 133 yards and a 
score of his own. 

New York’s offense 
looked to have finally 
made the adjustments 


necessary to find some 
kind of rhythm from 
the start. With quick 
slants and compact 
routes, the ball was get¬ 
ting out of Manning’s 
hands quickly. 

But LeGarrette Blount 
provided the only score 
of the first half, a one- 
yard touchdown with 
9:34 left in the first half. 

They gave the Giants 
a gift of an opportunity 
to tie the game, going 
for it on 4th-and-8 near 
midfield before Wentz 
was sacked, giving New 
York prime field position 
at the end of the half, but 
questionable playcalling 
forced the Giants to turn 
the ball over on downs. 

The Eagles doubled 
their lead in the third 
quarter when Wentz hit 
tight end Zach Ertz on a 
three-yard quick slant for 
a touchdown shortly af¬ 
ter Manning was picked 
off for a second time as 
the Giants looked des¬ 


tined for another lacklus¬ 
ter loss. 

But they finally got on 
the scoreboard with 2:31 
gone in the fourth quar¬ 
ter when Manning hit 
Beckham with a 10-yard 
lob in the back of the end 
zone, and that’s when 
momentum shifted. 

On the game’s next 
offensive play, Ertz was 
stripped of the football 
by Landon Collins and 
picked up by Eli Apple on 


Philly’s 33-yard-line. 

Four plays later, Beck¬ 
ham displayed why he is 
one of the best receivers 
in the league, hauling in 
a four-yard, one-handed 
catch in the left comer 
of the end zone through 
the arm of Eagles corner- 
back Jalen Mills. 

Manning wasn’t done 
though, as his very next 
throw hit Shepard on a 
15-yard hitch and let the 
second-year receiver do 


the rest of the work as 
he streaked through the 
Eagles secondary for a 77- 
yard score. 

But Philadelphia 
found an answer thanks 
to an Apple pass inter¬ 
ference penalty as Corey 
Clement scampered in 
from 15 yards out to tie 
the game with 5:46 left. 

The teams traded field 
goals in the final min¬ 
utes, setting up Elliott’s 
heroics.

Jets get off the mark with unlikely win 



Jets wide receiver Robbie Anderson provided the big play of the day with a 69-yard touchdown, getty images 


A New York City-

win and it’s the Jets 
after a decisive win 
over the Dolphins. 

JOE PANTORNO 
(ajoePantorno 

joseph.pantorno@metro.us 

So much for an 0-16 
season. 

The New York Jets 
dominated the Miami 
Dolphins on Sunday, 
picking up a 20-6 Week 
3 victory behind a sti¬ 
fling defense and tacti¬ 
cal offense. 


FINAL 9/17 


6 


20 


For an offense that 
allowed 818 total yards 
in their first two games 
this season, the defense 
looked like it heeded 


the challenge set before 
them by Todd Bowles 
two weeks ago, taking 
out their aggression on 
Jay Cutler and company. 

Miami was held to 
just 225 total yards on 
the afternoon, the low¬ 
est by far allowed by 
the Jets this season after 
they were ripped open 
by the Buffalo Bills and 
Oakland Raiders. 

New York limited 
the Dolphins to just 49 
total yards in the first 
half while holding their 
featured rusher Jay Ajayi 
to just 12 yards on eight 
carries. He had 122 yards 
last week and was ex¬ 
pected to run rampant 
on the Jets after Gang 
Green allowed 370 yards 
through the first two 
weeks of the season. 

Ajayi finished with 
just 16 yards on the 
ground for the day, a 
stark contrast from his 
season opener. 

Josh McCown, on 
the other hand, was 
able to navigate his way 
through the Dolphins 
defense fairly well, com¬ 


pleting 10 of his first 13 
passes. 

After a Chandler 
Catanzaro field goal, 
McCown hit Robbie 
Anderson for a 69-yard 
touchdown to give the 


Jets an improbable 10-0 
lead with 1:45 to go in 
the second quarter. 

It laid the foundation 
for a solid effort. While 
it wasn’t flashy, he man¬ 
aged the game as well as 


possible given the cir¬ 
cumstances of playing 
on a weaker team. 

On the day, he went 
18-of-23 for 249 yards 
and that one touchdown 
Six minutes into the 


third quarter, the Jets 
extended their lead fur¬ 
ther when Bilal Powell 
pounded home a one- 
yard scoring rush. It was 
the first touchdown by 
a Jets running back this 
season, a surprising stat 
for an offense that was 
supposed to be so reliant 
on the ground game. 

New York’s defense 
held firm, getting 
McCown and the offense 
the ball back quickly, al¬ 
lowing the Jets to tack 
on another field goal to 
build an insurmount¬ 
able 20-0 lead. 

The Dolphins would 
snag a touchdown with 
six seconds left in the 
game when Cutler hit 
DeVante Parker from 
three yards out. 

Parker had the most 
productive day of his 
Dolphins teammates 
with eight catches for 
76 yards, but it was little 
consolation for a team 
that was thoroughly 
dominated by what was 
supposed to be one of 
the worst teams in foot¬ 
ball.

Saturday and will be¬

to the NBA league office

They could not find a

Cleveland Cavaliers and 
Oklahoma City Thunder. 

Less than 24 hours 
later, Anthony was a 
member of the Thunder, 
traded for Enes Kanter, 
Doug McDermott and a 
2018 second-round draft 
choice. 

The Kniclcs get to 
focus on moving forward 
without the aging star 
as they try and build 
sustained success. 

It also means that 
Anthony gets to play 
meaningful basketball 
once again with other star 
players like Paul George 
and Russell Westbrook. 

Kniclcs president 
Steve Mills and general 
manager Scott Perry hit 
a home run with this 
deal. They rid them¬ 
selves of a distraction in 
Anthony, whom they no 
longer wanted, and they 
added assets that could 
actually help them now 
and in the future. There 
is nothing not to like 
about this trade. 

When Mills an¬ 
nounced the signing 
of restricted free agent 
Tim Hardaway Jr. at a 
press conference this 
past July, he described 
the new addition “as a 
versatile wing whose 
game continues to 
improve, he will fit right 
into the core of players 
that make up a roster 
emphasizing youth, ath¬ 
leticism, accountability 
and unselfishness.” 

Does that sound like 
a man whose vision for 
the Kniclcs moving for¬ 
ward included Carmelo

Anthony? 

And it was not just 
the Kniclcs looking to 
move on from Melo, it 
was Anthony that had 
enough with the Kniclcs 
as well. He grew tired 
of the nonsense and the 
drama and the lack of 
growth. Trust me, Melo, 
all Kniclcs fan feel the 
same exact way 

The Kniclcs needed to 
rip the Band-Aid off and 
move on. For the growth 
of the organization and 
for the growth of their 
third-year forward 
Kristaps Porzingis. 

There is no question 
that Anthony can still 
play, but in order to find 
out what Porzingis is 
as a player, he needed 
to go. 

It just did not work 


and the Anthony era will 
be known as an error 
more so than anything 
else. For what it was sup¬ 
posed to be and what it 
turned out to be, there is 
no other way to describe 
it other than disappoint¬ 
ing. 

Carmelo Anthony 
moves on and so do the 
Kniclcs. He is now in a 
winning situation where 
he will be playing mean¬ 
ingful games during the 
upcoming NBA regular 
season. As a Syracuse 
grad and lifelong Kniclcs 
fan, I wish him well. For 
the Kniclcs, it is about 
developing young play¬ 
ers and looking to build 
a team for sustained 
success. Saturday was a 
good day toward achiev¬ 
ing that goal.

Is your energy level lower than you’d like it to be? 

Join a research study at the Columbia University Medical 
Center. We are looking for participants aged 60 or older to get 
involved. This study is happening at 168th Street and 
Broadway in Manhattan. If eligible you could get: 

/ A free medical evaluation 
/ Free treatment with an experimental medication 

Call us at 646-774-8655 

if you would like to learn more or participate. 



Are you worried about your own memory or 
the memory of a loved one? Is there a history of 
Dementia or Alzheimer’s Disease in your family? 

This is a research study 
for individuals age 55-95 
with memory complaints 
to see if one’s sense of 
smell can predict response 
to memory treatment. 

If eligible, participants receive: 

♦ Medical evaluation 

♦ 1 year of treatment for memory deficits 

♦ Memory/cognitive performance monitoring by experts 

♦ Sense of smell testing 

♦ Monetary compensation 

If interested, please call 

(646) 774-7204 or (646) 774-7202 

The study is conducted at New York State 
Psychiatric Institute/Columbia University Medical 
Center and is funded by a research grant from 
the National Institute of Health.

Aries Emotional disillusionment will set in if 
you adopt someone else's beliefs. Don't 
follow anyone who claims to know it all. 
Make your own decisions. 

O Taurus Protect your assets, and negotiate on 
your own behalf. It's important to effectively 
control any financial, medical or legal mat¬ 
ters that surface without hesitation. 

O Gemini Disillusionment will set in if you aren't 
honest about your feelings for someone. Con¬ 
sider your needs and think about how best to 
satisfy yourself and those you care about. 

© Cancer Work on personal growth and physical 
improvements. Trying to change those around 
you will not turn out the way you want it to. 
Keep your life simple. 

O Leo Focus on what you can do, not on your 
opponents or intransigent situations. Sur¬ 
round yourself with individuals who share 
similar objectives. 

Virgo Deal with stressful situations openly 
and honestly, and take better care of your 
emotional and physical health. Refuse to let 
anyone put unrealistic demands on you. 


Libra Consider your options before you make 
a move. Knowing the pros and cons will make 
it easier to forgo choices that are too risky. 
Good fortune comes from good decisions. 

Scorpio Be imaginative and use any 
emotional tension you feel to create 
something that will bring you satisfaction. 
Make a promise to someone you love. 

© Sagittarius Be careful how you treat others 
and respond to them. It will be easy to get 
into a no-win situation. Make sure you can 
back up your assertions with proof. 

Capricorn Think before you make an emo¬ 
tional decision. Now is not the time to be a 
follower or to take on additional debt. Finan¬ 
cial awareness will control your stress. 

© Aquarius Make decisions based on facts, 
not on feelings. Your returns will be much 
higher if you think matters through and are 
cognizant of all your options. 

Pisces Being levelheaded and willing to 
listen and compromise will be the best way 
to avoid conflict. Channel your energy into 
creative outlets to ease stress, eugenia last
