It’s finally here! Grab a box of Eggos and 
head back to the "Upside Down" this 
weekend, because the second season of 
"Stranger Things" is finally here (well, 
on Netflix). But before you cozy up on 
your couch for an epic night of binge¬

TRUMP DECLARES PUBLIC 
HEALTH EMERGENCY 


TRUMP BLOCKS SOME JFK 
FILES UNDER PRESSURE 


President Donald Trump 
declared the opioid crisis a 
public health emergency on 
Thursday, stopping short of a 
national emergency declara¬ 
tion he promised months ago 
that would have freed up more 
federal money. Responding to a 
growing problem wreaking havoc 
in rural areas, Trump's declaration 
will redirect federal resources and 
loosen regulations to combat opi¬ 
oid abuse, senior administration 


officials said on a conference call 
with reporters. But it does not 
mean there will be more money 
to combat the crisis. Some critics, 
including Democratic lawmakers, 
said the declaration was mean¬ 
ingless without additional fund¬ 
ing. "This epidemic is a national 
health emergency," Trump said at 
the White House. "Nobody has 
seen anything like what’s going 
on now. As Americans, we cannot 
allow this to continue." 


President Donald Trump 
ordered the release of 
2,800 documents related 
to the 1963 assassination of Presi¬ 
dent John F. Kennedy but yielded 
to pressure from the FBI and 
CIA to block the release of some 
information, senior administra¬ 
tion officials said. Congress had 
ordered in 1992 that all records 
relating to the investigation into 
Kennedy’s death should be open 
to the public and set a deadline 


of Oct. 26,2017, for the entire 
set to be made public. Trump had 
confirmed on Saturday that he 
would allow the documents to 
be made public. Administration 
officials told reporters that Trump 
ordered government agencies to 
study the redactions in the docu¬ 
ments over the next 180 days to 
determine whether they needed 
to remain hidden from the public. 
After the review. Trump expected 
such withholdings to be rare.

BILLIONAIRE CHARGED 
IN OPIOID BRIBERY CASE 


TWITTER BANS ADS FROM 
RUSSIAN MEDIA OUTLETS 


The billionaire founder of 
Insys Therapeutics Inc was 
arrested on Thursday on 
U.S. charges that he participated 
in a scheme with other execu¬ 
tives to bribe doctors to prescribe 
a fentanyl-based cancer pain 
drug and to defraud insurers. 

John Kapoor, 74, who stepped 
down as chief executive of Insys 
in January, was charged with hav¬ 
ing engaged in conspiracies to 
commit racketeering, mail fraud 


and wire fraud in an indictment 
filed in federal court in Boston. 
He was arrested in Arizona, 
where Insys is based, and added 
as a defendant in a previously 
filed case against six former 
Insys executives and managers, 
including former Chief Executive 
Michael Babich, prosecutors 
said. Brian Kelly, Kapoor’s lawyer, 
said in an email: "My client is 
innocent and he intends to fight 
these charges vigorously." 


Twitter Inc on Thursday 
accused Russian media 
outlets Russia Today and 
Sputnik of interfering in the 
2016 U.S. election and banned 
them from buying ads on its 
network, after criticism the 
social network had not done 
enough to deter international 
meddling. RT and Sputnik con¬ 
demned the decision, saying 
Twitter had encouraged ad 
spending with its sales tactics. 


while Russia’s foreign ministry 
said the ban was due to U.S. 
government pressure and that 
it planned to retaliate. San 
Francisco-based Twitter said in 
an unsigned statement on its 
website that election meddling 
is "not something we want" on 
the social network. It cited a 
report this year from U.S. intel¬ 
ligence agencies and said it had 
also done its own investigations 
of RT and Sputnik. 




POLL 


38 %,^ 


President Donald Trump’s approval 
ratings took another hit this week, 
with a Fox News poll showing the 
president’s numbers are poor even 
among his white voting base. The 
president now holds a 38 percent 
approval rating, down from 42 
percent in September.

hit New York City that 
Oct. 29. Five years iater, 
the horror of that night 
is stiii present for her 
and her now-11-year-oid 
daughter. 

“She’s terrified that 
she’s going to reiive Hur¬ 
ricane Sandy,” Rivera said. 
“Every time it wiii rain re- 
aiiy hard, she wiU ciy, ‘Are 
we going to make it? Are 
we going to die?”’ 

As 80 mph winds and 
record-breaking storm 
surges struck, Rivera 
heard a ioud crack inside 
her apartment on the 
third and top fioor of her 
buiiding. 

“It scared me, so I got 
my daughter from her 
bed. As soon as I took her 
out of the bed, the ceiling 
came down,” Rivera said. 

Having lost absolutely 
everything, including fam¬ 
ily pets and heirlooms, the 
two hed in their pajamas 
to the nearest pohce pre¬ 
cinct - and spent the next 
year at city shelters and a 
Midtown hotel. 

On Saturday, Rivera 
and countless others will 
participate in #Sandy5, a 
march over the Brookl 3 m 
Bridge that culminates 
in a rally at the Alfred E. 
Smith Houses in Man¬ 
hattan to commemorate 
the fifth armiversary of 
Superstorm Sandy - and 
call on political leaders 
to enact bold policies to 
combat climate change. 

“We need to be more 
prepared because you 
never know if another 
hurricane will come up 
the coast again and hit 
us harder than Sandy 
did,” said Rivera, who, as 
a member of New York 
Communihes for Change 
(NYCC), will share her 
story on Saturday 

NYCC is one of the or¬ 
ganizers of #Sandy5, and 
when Metro spoke to Pete 
Sikora, one of its officials, 
it was minutes after ac¬ 
tor and longtime envi¬ 


ronmentalist Leonardo 
DiCaprio tweeted about 
Saturday’s march. 

“It’s very exciting 
that he’s retweeting it, 
so I’m fanboying a little 
bit about it,” Sikora said 
with a laugh. “But the 
purpose of this march is 
not to get fired up about 
celebrities - it’s to get the 
mayor and the governor 
to actually take the bold, 
serious action needed 
now to fight climate 
change, create good jobs 
and ensure justice.” 

The march will urge 
Gov. Andrew Cuomo and 
Mayor Bill de Blasio to do 
more than “taking small, 
incremental baby steps,” 
Sikora said. “One of the 
main demands is to get 
New York City to reduce 
its enormous climate pol¬ 
lution footprint. ... What 
we want is for the mayor 
to require large buildings 
to upgrade to modern 
energy efficiency stan¬ 
dards.” 

The mayor last 
month unveiled such 
a building mandate to 
meet strict fossil fuel tar¬ 
gets by 2030, but “it’s not 
enough,” Sikora said. 

“Ninety percent of the 
square footage in the city 
that’s going to be up by 
2050 already exists, so 
the bulk of the city’s ch- 
mate pollution is coming 
from existing, old, inef¬ 
ficient polluting build¬ 
ings,” he added. 

Sikora said leaders like 
Cuomo and de Blasio need 
to stand up to the Trump 
administration’s efforts 
to undo chmate change 
progress that can have 
catastrophic effects. 

“We got a taste of that 
five years ago with Sandy, 
and right now, we have 
people all over the world 
hterally running for their 
lives from fires and floods 
and hurricanes, so are we 
going to wait for another 
Sandy to hit us?” he asked. 


‘*[The goal of the march is] 
to get the mayor and the 
governor to actually take the 
bold, serious action needed 
now to fight climate change, 
create good jobs and ensure 
justice.”

NYC areas hit hardest by 
Sandy have seen a boom 
in new builds: Report 


Since Superstorm 
Sandy hit in 2012, 
New York City has 
been rebuilding 
but also adding 
more new homes to 
vulnerable flood- 


zone areas. 


o 


KRISTIN TOUSSAINT

It has been five years since 
Superstorm Sandy devas¬ 
tated homes and buildings 
across New York, and the 
city has been in the pro¬ 
cess of repairing itself ever 
since. Along with rebuild¬ 
ing the homes that were 
affected by the storm, 
new developments have 
continued to pop up in 
vulnerable flood zones. 

More than 85 percent 
of 8,300 homes (that each 
house one to four fami¬ 
lies) have completed the 
city’s Build It Back pro¬ 
gram, Mayor BiU de Blasio 
announced in a report this 
week. Build It Back began 
in 2013, following the 
2012 storm, and helps to 
start construction, reim¬ 
burse homeowner or land¬ 
lord repairs, or facilitate 
home acquisition. 

To help those affected 


by Sandy, 6,400 homes 
have received repairs and 
damage reimbursement, 
and more than 200 homes 
have been elevated or re¬ 
built to new fiood eleva¬ 
tion standards. 

But along with repairs, 
entirely new develop¬ 
ments have been built in 
areas affected by Sandy. 

Some of the most af¬ 
fected areas, like down¬ 
town Manhattan and 
northwest Brookl 5 m, have 
seen an explosion in de¬ 
velopment, according to 
an analysis by real estate 
site StreetEasy. Within the 
Financial District, the me¬ 
dian sale price of homes 
within Sandy-affected ar¬ 
eas passed $2 miUion for 
the first time this year, 
meaning the neighbor¬ 
hood is in high demand. 

Twenty-seven new 
residential buildings have 
been constructed in Red 


200 


MORETHAN200 
HOMES HAVE BEEN 
ELEVATED OR 
REBUILT TO NEW 
FLOOD ELEVATION 
STANDARDS. 


PREPARATIONS SINCE SANDY 


How has NYC prepared in the five 
years since Sandy? 

When Superstorm Sandy struck 
NYC five years ago, some initially 
called the disaster a "once-in-a-life- 
time storm." But as more research 
comes out, experts say such storms 
will become more common. 

What does that mean for the 
future, and how can we prepare? 

The Regional Plan Association, 
an urban research and advocacy 
nonprofit, released a report that 
said that over the next 30 years, 
nearly 60 percent of the tristate 
area's energy capacity will be in 
areas at risk of flooding. 

In total, the number of people 
living in flood-risk zones in the tri¬ 
state area will likely double from 1 
million to 2 million over that time, 
according to the report. 

One of the biggest lessons 
from Sandy, New York City's Chief 
Resilience Officer Dan Zarrilli said, 
has been that building codes work 


Hook, all of which, except 
for two, are in fiood zones. 
In the Rockaways, 86 new 
residential buildings have 


appeared in the last five 
years - the “most in any 
NYC fiood zone,” the re¬ 
port said.

The South Ferry subway station in the Financial District was flooded by Sandy. 

FLICKR/MTA 


to protect against such storms. 

"For folks who lived on the 
coast, your outcome in many 
ways was dependent on how old 
your building was that you lived 
in," he said. 'The more modern 
the building meant the more 
modern the codes." 

Continuing to update building 
codes is one way the city is prepar¬ 
ing for the storms of the future. 
Another lesson from Sandy was 
how important it is for neighbor¬ 
hoods and businesses to come 
together around the issue. 

"It's about how we engage 
with those communities to support 
projects," he said. "We've [already] 
completed a number of projects, 
like [fortifying] the Rockaway 
Boardwalk, working with utilities 
like ConEd on investing in the 
power grid and investing in the 
water supply system - ways of 
making our vital services stronger."

Adorable snow leopard 
cub has Bronx Zoo debut 



There is a new resident at the Bronx Zoo: a "ghost cat." wo/juue larsen maher 


Just in time for Hal¬ 
loween - and the last 
weekend of Boo at the 
Zoo - the Bronx Zoo 
debuted one of its new¬ 
est residents, a snow 
leopard cub, which is 
sometimes known as a 
“ghost cat.” 

“This snow leopard 
cub is special not only 
because it is an ambas¬ 
sador for its species, but 
because of its lineage,” 
Dr. Patrick Thomas said 
in a statement. Thomas 
is vice president and 
general curator of the 
Wildlife Conservation 
Society (WCS), which 
oversees the Bronx Zoo, 
and serves as the zoo’s 
associate director. 

The yet-unnamed - 
and adorable - female 
cub was born over the 
summer to mom, K2, 
and dad, Naltar, who 
is the son of Leo the 
snow leopard. Leo was 
rescued after being 
orphaned in the moun¬ 
tains of Pakistan in 
2005 and brought to the 


Bronx Zoo the following 
year as part of a col¬ 
laboration between the 
WCS and the U.S. and 
Pakistani governments. 

“Leo and his descen¬ 
dants, including this 
cub, will help bolster the 
health and genetics of 
the snow leopard popu¬ 
lation in AZA-accredited 
zoos,” Thomas said. 

More than 70 snow 
leopard cubs have been 
born at the Bronx Zoo, 
which was the first 
American zoo to exhibit 
these “ghost cats” in 
1903, the zoo said. They 
are called such because 
their coloration helps 


them blend into the 
rocks and snow of their 
native mountains of 
Central Asia and parts of 
China, Mongolia, Russia, 
India and Bhutan. 

But luckily, you only 
have to go as far as the 
Bronx to see this cutie, 
who can be seen at the 
Bronx Zoo’s Himalayan 
Highlands exhibit. 

The zoo is open 10 
a.m. to 5 p.m. weekdays, 
until 5:30 p.m. weekends 
through October and 
until 4:30 p.m. from 
November to March. For 
more info, visit bronx

NY prosecutor to retire after be¬ 
ing charged in beating cover-up 

A district attorney on Long 
Island, New York, announced his 
retirement on Thursday, one day 
after he was arraigned on federal 
charges that he helped cover 
up a police chiefs assault on an 
handcuffed inmate. 

Thomas Spota, the 
76 -year-old district attorney of 
Suffolk County, said he would be 
stepping down "at the earliest 
opportunity after the resolution 
of normal administrative matters 
relating to my retirement." His 
statement did not address the 
charges he faces. 

The federal indictment stems 
from an incident in December 
2012 , when, authorities say, 
then-Suffolk County Police Chief 
James Burke beat a jailed inmate 
who had been arrested for 
breaking into his car. 

Spota and the chief of his 
anti-public corruption bureau, 
Christopher McFarland, face

The drugs techni¬ 
cally only put you 
in “a state of un¬ 
consciousness.” 

MEAGAN MORRIS

[etters@metro.us 

Imagine this scenario: 
You’ve been in bed since 
11 p.m., but your mind 
is still racing a thou¬ 
sand miles a minute. 
You glance at the clock: 
It’s 1:38 a.m. and you 
have to be up again at 
5 to make it to work on 
time. Forget about eight 
hours; you just want one 
hour of sleep, so you 
take a couple of sleep¬ 
ing pills in a last-ditch 
attempt to drift off to 
dreamland. 

Sound familiar? Prob¬ 
ably: The National Sleep 
Foundation estimates 
that at least one in three 
people experiences at 
least mild insomnia — 
and relying on sleeping 
pills to help you doze 
off isn’t doing you any 
favors, according to Matt 
Walker, a professor of 
neuroscience and psy¬ 
chology at the University 
of California, Berkeley. 

“The quality of sleep 
that you have when 
you’re on these drugs is 
not the same as normal, 
naturalistic sleep,” he 
told The Cut. 

Why sleeping pills 
don’t work 

Walker delves into 
the subject in his new 
book, “Why We Sleep,” 
and says that these pills 
are “sedative h 5 rpnotics” 
that just knock you out 


without giving you the re¬ 
storative powers of sleep. 

“The way that they 
work is by targeting a set 
of receptors, or ‘welcome 
sites,’ in the brain that 
are lured to basically stop 
your brain cells from fir¬ 
ing,” he told The Cut. 
“They principally attack 
those sites in the cortex, 
this wrinkle of tissue on 
the top of your brain, 
and they just switch off 
the top of your cortex, 
the top of your brain, 
and put you into a state 
of unconsciousness.” 

Actual sleep, on the 
other hand, is an “in¬ 
credibly complex ballet 
of neurochemical bril¬ 
liance” that pharmaceu¬ 
ticals can’t match. Don’t 
just take his word for 
it: A committee of ex¬ 
perts reviewed 65 stud¬ 
ies on drug placebos and 
found that the impact of 
sleeping pills was small, 
at best. Walker says that 
any perceived benefit is 
psychological. 

What to use instead of 
sleeping pills 
So, are you doomed to 
spend more nights star¬ 
ing at the ceiling? Not 
necessarily: Walker 

— and the American Col¬ 
lege of Physicians — rec¬ 
ommends a t 5 q)e of cog¬ 
nitive therapy known as 
CBT-I that involves tradi¬ 
tional therapy with sleep 
restriction (only going to 
bed when you’re sleepy) 
and education on good 
sleep habits. In other 
words, you change the 
way your brain process¬ 
es sleep. 

“Here’s the recom¬ 
mendation: If you’ve 




The National Sleep Foundation estimates that at least one in three people 
experiences at least mild insomnia, istock 


been in bed for 20 min¬ 
utes and you can’t fall 
asleep, that’s not good,” 
Walker told the website. 
“The advice is: Get out 
of bed, go to a different 
room with dim lights, 
read a book, and only re¬ 


turn to bed when you’re 
sleepy” so your brain 
can “relearn” that your 
bed means sleep, not 
wakefulness. 

And though it might 
be difficult, try to limit 
your caffeine intake 


after noon even if you 
think it doesn’t bother 
your sleep. 

“Even if you fall 
asleep fine, the depth 
of sleep, the quality of 
sleep that you will have, 
will not be as deep or as 


rich in quality if caffeine 
is circulating around 
the brain,” he said. “And 
you don’t know that, 
of course. You’re still 
asleep. You’re just not 
getting the best sleep 
that you could be.”

‘Thank You for Your Service’ is an 
important movie for everyone 


It doesn’t matter where 
you stand on war — 
this is about much 
more. 



GREGORY WAKEMAN 
OMetroNewYork 

gregory.wakemangmetro.us 


No one needs to remind 
Miles Teller just how im¬ 
portant the subject matter 
of “Thank You for Your 
Service” is. In fact, Teller 
was so concerned about 
the gravitas of taking on 
the role of Iraq war vet¬ 
eran and PTSD survivor 
Adam Schumann that he 
almost turned it down. 

“I didn’t want to em¬ 
barrass him,” says Teller. 
“And I didn’t want to 
embarrass the militaiy. I 
think even pretending, or 


acting, like you’ve done 
three deployments and 
went through the things 
that he went through; I 
don’t know, something 
about that didn’t feel right 
to me.” 

But to tell both the tale 
of war and of the difficulty 
of returning home was 
too important to neglect. 

“I felt a real responsi¬ 
bility,” he says, “and like 
I reily wanted to be the 
person to tell his stoiy.” 

“Thank You for Your 
Service” isn’t just about 
Schumann’s journey — it 
also revolves around Tau- 
solo Aieti (Beulah Koale) 
and Wm Waller Qoe Cole), 
both of whom made it 
home from war but strug¬ 
gled to adapt with their 
surroundings. 

While Teller admits 


that he was “very ner¬ 
vous” about portraying a 
high-ranking officer in the 
Army, he felt the need to 
bring Schumann and his 
squad to the big screen to 
educate a wider audience 
on the aftermath of battle, 
and what it actually is we 
ask of our men and wom¬ 
en in uniform. 

“We’re in the busi¬ 
ness of storytelling, and I 
think it’s our job to enter¬ 
tain people for a form of 
escape,” Teller says. “But 
the medium of fihn is ex¬ 
tremely powerful and it 
can do something that an 
article just can’t. [Movies] 
create an extremely vis¬ 
ceral, eye-opening experi¬ 
ence, and you can allow 
the audience to be a fly 
on the wall and really give 
the first-person perspec¬ 


tive on what someone is 
going through. It’s very 
powerful and you can 
shine a light on some 
issues that aren’t being 
talked about enough, 
like this one.” 

A central issue ad¬ 
dressed in this film is 
the lack of reinte¬ 
gration services 
provided to vet¬ 
erans. 

“There are 
no programs, 
really,” says 
Teller. “These 
guys come 
back, and in 
Adam’s case 
he’s carry¬ 
ing a fallen 
brother 
[the guy 
is shot in 
the head], 



and Adam is choking 
on his blood and swal¬ 
lowing parts of his 
brain, and all that 
s—t. Then a week 
later he’s at home 
making pancakes 
for his kids. How 
quickly they expect 
these guys to 
make this 
transition 
was shock¬ 
ing to me.” 

Teller 
is hope¬ 
ful that 

“Thank You 
for Your 
Service” 
can help to 
“lessen the 
divide be¬ 
tween civil¬ 
ian and veter¬ 
an,” especially 


as during his extensive re¬ 
search he learned “that 
the men and women that 
serve this country are be¬ 
coming more and more 
segregated.” 

“Ifrey’re coming from 
very similar parts of the 
country,” says Teller. 
“They’re coming from 
similar economic back¬ 
grounds. It’s not like these 
guys were drafted, and it’s 
not like it is World War 
II, but people still don’t 
think they have a patriotic 
duty [to support them]. I 
don’t know, it just seems 
more and more divided. 
So I’m hoping people see 
this and — regardless of 
how you feel about war — 
they find it humanizing.” 

“Thank You for Your Ser¬ 
vice” is in cinemas from Oct. 
27.

“Thank You For 
Your Service” 

Director: Jason Hall 

Stars: Miles Teller, Haley Bennet 

Rating: R 

• • • O O 

"Thank You For Your Service" 
is a commendable endeavor, 
much more than a war story, 
and works for audiences on both 
sides of the aisle. Writer and 
director Jason Hall and star Miles 
Teller handle the subject matter 
in a probing, stark, realistic and 
engaging manner. Teller can't 


quite hit the heights of his past 
efforts, but he still brings a 
festering intensity that will keep 
you hooked. Meanwhile, Hall 
does a brilliant job highlighting 
the institutionalized flaws and 
injustices our veterans face after 
giving everything to our country, 
and effectively puts us in their 
shoes. Unfortunately 'Thank 
You For Your Service" starts off 
on a high, but its authenticity 
dissipates toward the end. It's 
gallant, it's important, but it 
won't leave you with a satisfac¬ 
tory ending. Gregory wakeman 


“God’s Owu 
Country” 

Director: Francis Lee 
Stars: Josh O'Connor, Alex 
Secareanu 

Rating: R 


"God's Own Country" is an 
absorbing, unflinchingly inti¬ 
mate romantic drama that's 
destined to lazily be labeled 
as the British "Brokeback 
Mountain." It's not, though. It 
proudly beats to the sound of 
its own drum, as writer and 
director Francis Lee delves 
into his own past to bring 


the location, romance and 
complexity of his characters 
to life with an unerring eye. 
Lee does this while avoid¬ 
ing the sensationalist and 
melodramatic plot traits of 
similar films, which, if used, 
could've made "God's Own 
Country" derivative. Instead, 
certain scenes suddenly make 
you realize just how subtly 
seduced you've become by 
the unsentimental tear-jerker 
being played out on the big 
screen. Which is exactly why 
"God's Own Country" is one 
of the most surprising and 
touching films you'll see all 
year, gw 





“Suburbicou” 

Director: George Clooney 
Stars: Matt Damon, Julianne 
Moore 

Rating: R 

• • O O O 

You've already heard that 
"Suburbicon" is a categori¬ 
cal disaster, but hear me 
out — it's a waste of the 
star talent involved, but at 
worst it's utterly innocuous. 
While it's now clear that 
George Clooney's impact as 
a director peaked in 2005 
with "Good Night and Good 
Luck," the presence of Matt 
Damon, Julianne Moore and 


M 


[ 


Oscar Isaac, and the fact 
that the film was written by 
Oscar-winners Ethan Coen, 
Joel Coen, Grant Heslov and 
Clooney, all mean it should 
have been much better, 
it's not all that bad. Robert 
Elswit's cinematography is a 
high point, as he manages 
to create a beguiling mood, 
but neither the script nor 
Clooney's direction can take 
advantage of it. There's just 
enough to stop it from being 
a complete bore. But, come 
the end, you'll still think it 
was a waste of time. Save 
this one for pizza-and-Netflix 
night, gw

Meet the new bad boy of 
‘Stranger Things’ season 2 


Dacre Montgomery 
wants to be your new 
favorite TV villain. 



Move over, Frank Under¬ 
wood, there’s a new bad 
boy on Netflix, and his 
name is Dacre Montgom¬ 
ery. 

The Aussie actor is 
trading in his red Power 
Ranger suit for an ’80s 
muilet as he takes on the 
roie of Biiiy for the highiy 
anticipated second season 
of “Stranger Things.” 
Montgomery teiis Metro 
that he hopes the char¬ 
acter wiii become a fan 
favorite, even though 
he’s an “unpredictabie” 
viUain who terrorizes the 
young heroes of Hawkins, 
Indiana. 

Ahead of the new 
season’s debut, we caught 
up with the 22-year-oId 
star to find out what fans 
can expect from Billy 
when “Stranger Things” 
returns. 

Billy is the new bad 
boy in town. How does 
he factor into the new 
season? 

He and Steve Harrington, 
Joe [Keery’s] character, 
come head-to-head. He 
just feels threatened. 

The amazing actor Will 
Chase, who plays my 
father, he’s the catalyst 
for the way that BiUy is. 
When we first meet him 
in the first five episodes, 
this guy is hke the stereo- 
t 5 rpical bully/jock charac¬ 
ter, but there’s far more 
to it than that. When we 
meet his father, you can 


humanize the villain a 
little bit more by seeing 
that my father is more 
of a monster than I am. 
That just spawns out into 
everything. I’m hard on 
Lucas (Caleb McLaughlin) 
in the show because of 
his relationship with 
Sadie [Sink], the actress 
who plays Max, my 
stepsister. 

Will Billy be a villain fans 
love to hate? 

I hope so! I hope, because 
with antiheroes - hke 
Kevin Spacey in “House 
of Cards” - you want to 
see a villain that’s like, 
“Why do I hke this guy 
so much? It’s fmstrating 
that I like him.” 

The Duffer brothers 
made you prepare for 
the role by watching a 
lot of Jack Nicholson's 
performances. How did 
his work influence your 
character? 

Jack’s acting style, spe¬ 
cifically in “The Shining,” 
there’s an unpredictable 
quality to the character 
that makes scenes quite 
sinister. That’s what I was 
taking from him. 

How does Billy and Max's 
relationship play out on 
the show? 

Everyone’s hke, “Bihy’s so 
hard on Max and doesn’t 
care about Max,” but I 
think he does. He cares 
about Max a lot. There’s 
this thing from his 
stepmother and father to 
look after her, and maybe 
that’s what’s driving him. 
I have a sister, and we’re 
the same age difference 
as me and Sadie. At the 
end of the day, he has to 
love his sister and care 


about his sister in order 
to follow up, to see where 
she is and make sure 
that she’s not getting 
into trouble. Because 
he’s a teenager, there are 
aU these chemicals, this 
journey to manhood, it 
just comes out in differ¬ 
ent ways - anger, a lot of 
the time. God bless Sadie, 
because she’s an amazing 
actress and wise beyond 
her years. 

Has your experience with 
rabid “Power Rangers" 
fans prepared you for 
dealing with the devoted 
“Stranger Things” fan¬ 
dom? 

1 hope that it did. I think 
“Power Rangers” and 
“Stranger Things,” there’s 
small differences. “Strang¬ 
er Things,” the fandom 

is much newer, it’s much 
fresher. People are veiy, 
veiy keen to see this sec¬ 
ond season as soon as pos¬ 
sible. Having seen the cast 
of the first season and 
how they’ve navigated life 
through their loss of their 
anon 5 miity over the last 
few months, a combina¬ 
tion of that and “Power 
Rangers” has probably 
prepared me a httle bit. I 
tiy to imagine that I have 
a grasp of what it’s going 
to be like, but I truly don’t 
think that I do. 

Should fans expect you to 
dress up as your “Power 
Rangers” character or 
Billy for Halloween this 
year? 

I’m so bad with costumes. 
One of my mates said I 
should be a red Power 
Ranger with a muUet 
[laughs]. I don’t know.

Louis Vuitton’s new 
free exhibit is a 
fascinating reminder 
to get out there.

It was 1893 when the first 
Louis Vuitton case landed 
in the United States. We 
don’t have to tell you how 
that went for the brand. 

Even if you’re not into 
haute couture and can 
only dream of carrying a 
real LV monogram purse, 
the new exhibit “Volez, 
Voguez, Voyagez” — or, 
for the non-French speak¬ 
ers, “Sail, Fly, Travel” — is 
a captivating look at the 
brand’s history. 

Housed in the old 
American Stock Exchange 
building in Lower Man¬ 
hattan at 86 Trinity Place, 
the free exhibit spans two 
floors examining over a 
century of the luxury trav¬ 
el accessory company’s 
history and legacy. 

On grand display are 


classic items including 
Louis Vuitton’s own LV 
steamer trunk — having 
a flat instead of curved top 
was his own irmovation — 
as well as the cases, purs¬ 
es, trunks and, more re¬ 
cently, dresses carried by 
famous fans of the brand 
hke actress Jane Fonda 
and “The Great Gatsby” 
author F. Scott Fitzgerald. 
Famous collaborations get 
their own hall, as do the 
intricate bags created just 
for ladies on the go. 

More than just a gallery 
of its greatest hits, “Volez, 
Voguez, Voyagez” honors 
the hard work behind 
the glamour: the wooden 
tools used to make the 
first bags, design sketches 
and trunks laid open with 
period-appropriate acces¬ 
sories to show the crafts¬ 
manship that went into 
objects that were once 
more than just utilitarian. 

Yes, it’s certainly nice 
that travel by cruise ships, 
cars and planes is no lon¬ 
ger restricted to the ex¬ 
tremely wealthy—and re¬ 
ally, having a Louis Vuitton

case for your hairbrushes 
was always a bit much, no 
matter how much money 
you have. 

But being surrounded 
by these iconic symbols 
that indicate “going plac¬ 
es” in every sense of the 
phrase affords us all a 
glimpse of what travel was 
like when the journey was 
the destination. It’ll leave 
you inspired to see the 
world — no matter how 
you get there. 

Should you find your¬ 
self in need of a souvenir, 
instead of a gift shop (that 
would be tacky), the brand 
is opening a temporary 
store at nearby Brookfield 
Place the day the exhibi¬ 
tion opens.

Girardi out as Yankees manager 



The Yankees decided to fire manager Joe Girardi despite coming within a win of the 2017 World Series, getty images 


The 10-year run of 
the Bronx skipper 
is over. 



The New York Yankees 
fired long-time manager 
Joe Girardi on Thursday 
morning, ending a de- 
cade-long run. 

A statement from Gi¬ 
rardi revealed “with a 
heavy heart” that it was 
the Yankees’ decision to 
not bring him back. Fan- 
Rag Sports’ Jon He 3 mian 
reported that Yankees 
General Manager Brian 
Gashman made the call, 
advising Hal Steinbrenner 
to make the move. 

The 53-year-old spent 
10 seasons as the Yankees 
skipper, winning a World 
Series title in 2009. He 
recently led the Yankees 
to an improbable appear¬ 
ance in the ALGS where 
they fell in seven games 
to the Houston Astros. It 
was a remarkable season 
considering New York 


was a rebuilding club not 
expected to make the 
postseason. 

“I want to thank Joe 
for his 10 years of hard 
work and service to this 
organization,” Gash- 
man wrote in an official 
statement. “Everything 
this organization does 
is done with careful and 
thorough consideration, 
and we’ve deiced to pur¬ 
sue alternatives for the 
managerial position.” 

Despite the success, 
Girardi was often put 
under the microscope 
for managerial deci¬ 
sions, which is common 
in New York. But he was 
accused of overmanaging 
games, mismanaging his 
buUpen and not utilizing 
his challenges correctly. 

He fell under fire 
most recently after Game 
2 of the ALDS against the 
Gleveland Indians when 
he failed to challenge 
a play in which Lonnie 
Ghisenhall was ruled to 
have been hit by a pitch 
with the Yankees leading 
8-3 with two outs in the 


sixth to load the bases. 
Replays showed that the 
ball had, in fact, hit the 
knob of Ghisenhall’s bat, 
but Girardi chose not to 
challenge it and he was 
awarded first base. The 
next batter, Francisco 
Lindor, hit a grand slam 
to spark the Indians 
comeback. They won the 
game 9-8 in 13 innings. 

New York came back 
to win the series and 
move on to the ALGS, 


Who’s up 

While there are no 
definitive favorites to 
take over the Yankees’ 
managerial job, there 
already has been some 
insight provided, which 
could help formulate a 
crude list of candidates. 

According to YES 
Network’s Jack Guriy, 
Gashman — who will 
be tasked with finding 
a new skipper — will 
be looking for someone 
that he has previously 
worked with. 

ROB THOMSON 
Thomson is the current 
bench coach for the Yan¬ 
kees who has worked 
his way through the 
ranks of the organiza¬ 
tion for over 25 years. 

He joined the club 
in 1990 as a third-base 
coach for single-A Fort 
Lauderdale before 
moving into the front 
office in 1998. He went 
from field coordinator 


where they once again 
overturned a 2-games- 
to-0 deficit to take a 3-2 
lead before losing the 
last two games of the 
series in Houston. 

While there were 
and will be arguments 
against him, Girardi 
is one of the greatest 
managers in franchise 
history as his 910 wins 
rank sixth on the team’s 
all-time list. He never 
had a losing season — 


to director of player 
development to vice 
president of minor 
league development in 
2003. That same season, 
he was promoted to the 
major-league coaching 
staff. 

In 2008, he was 
named bench coach un¬ 
der Girardi and returned 
to the position in 2015. 
If there is one person 
that knows the ins and 
outs of this organiza¬ 
tion, it’s him. But if the 
Yankees are looking for 
a fresh face and a new 
approach, they might 
stay away from him. 

TONY PENA 
Pena has been with 
the Yankees for quite a 
while himself, joining 
the team in 2006 as a 
first-base coach. 

After Joe Torre left 
the club, Pena inter¬ 
viewed for the manage¬ 
rial position but lost 


continuing the organiza¬ 
tion’s streak of seasons 
over .500 to 25 years 
— despite heavy roster 
turnover that was high¬ 
lighted by the retiring of 
the team’s “Gore Four” 
of Derek Jeter, Jorge 
Posada, Mariano Rivera 
and Andy Pettitte. 

He has more play¬ 
off appearances in his 
10-year term with the 
Yankees than eight MLB 
franchises have in their 


out to Girardi. He was 
named bench coach in 
2009 where he stayed 
until 2014 before mov¬ 
ing back to first-base 
coaching duties. 

He has manage¬ 
rial experience, most 
recently coaching the 
Dominican Republic 
national team in the 
World Baseball Glassic. 

ALEX RODRIGUEZ 
This might be too far 
of a stretch, but A-Rod 
has proven during his 
time as an analyst for 
FOX Sports that he eats, 
sleeps and breathes 
baseball. 

His analysis of the 
game is on the next 
level and it’s clear that 
he wants to get back 
into the grind of a Major 
League Baseball season. 
Rodriguez spent the 
final 12 seasons of his 
MLB career with the 
Yankees and was a part 


entire history, including 
the San Diego Padres 
and Washington Nation¬ 
als. 

His departure contin¬ 
ues the dizz 5 dng trend 
of successful managers 
being let go. Dusty Baker 
of the Nationals and John 
Farrell of the Boston Red 
Sox both won division ti¬ 
tles this season and made 
the playoffs before they 
were fired. 

The Mets also made a 
change at manager after 
Terry Gollins resigned fol¬ 
lowing the final game of 
the regular season. They 
introduced former Indi¬ 
ans pitching coach Mick¬ 
ey Gallaway as their new 
manager on Monday. 

This is the first time 
that the Mets and Yan¬ 
kees have made changes 
at the managerial po¬ 
sition in the same off¬ 
season since 1992. The 
Yankees let go of Stump 
Merril and hired Buck 
Showalter while the Mets 
parted ways with Mike 
Gubbage and brought on 
JeffTorborg. 

There has been specu¬ 
lation in the last few days 
that the Nationals might 
be interested in bringing 
on Girardi as manager. 
With him now on the 
market, that’s something 
to keep an eye out for.

Correa and Jose Altuve. getty images 


of their 2009 World 
Series-winning team. 

At 42 years old, he 
is a younger candidate 
that could relate more 
to the players, who 
should be receptive of a 
man who crushed 696 
career home runs in 22 
big-league seasons.

Things to watch for as the 
slumping Jets host Fhlcons 


r' 


Leamtofinidi 

The New York Jets are trudg¬ 
ing through a two-game 
losing streak, but it should 
never gotten that far. 

In each of their last two 
games against the New 
England Patriots and Miami 
Dolphins, the Jets had 
double-digit advantages in 
the second half before the 
wheels fell off. 

While giving up a lead 



against Tom Brady is almost 
understandable given the 
future Hall of Earner's track 
record, losing a 14-point ad¬ 
vantage to Matt Moore and 
the Dolphins is inexcusable. 

Yes, the Jets were not 
expected by many to win 
three games this year, but 
an NFL team with that 
comfortable an advantage 
has to finish things off when 
given the opportunity. 


When you think of explosive 
offenses, the Jets' unit is 
one of the furthest groups 
that come to mind given its 
depth chart. 

It's a conservative of¬ 
fense, to say the least, but 
quarterback Josh McCown 
and Co. might want to 
experiment going big against 


the Falcons. 

Atlanta's pass defense 
has just two interceptions 
through its first six games. 
Only the Carolina Panthers 
and Oakland Raiders have 
less. 

Look for Jermaine Kearse 
to continue his impressive 
season as New York's No. 1 
receiver Sunday. 



WEEKS 

Sunday at 1 p.m. on FOX 


Contain Jnlio 

The Jets secondary might just 
face its biggest challenge 
of the season against the 
Falcons and it's not because of 
reigning MVP Matt Ryan. 

Gang Green is going to 
have its hands full with wide 
receiver Julio Jones, who is 
one of, if not the best pass 
catchers in the NFL. 

Through six games this 
year, Jones already has 466 


yards on 34 catches. 

The 6 -foot- 4 , 220-pound 
receiver is as physical as 
they come and can line up 
anywhere on the line of 
scrimmage whether it be in 
the slot or on the outside. 

He runs routes to perfec¬ 
tion and finds the open 
spaces on the inside. 

When tasked to go 
deep, he's almost impossible 
to beat in the air. joepantorno

Turner’s Dodgers run a 
reminder of what Nets lost 


The Dodgers star 
was once a seldom- 
used utility man in 
Queens. 

d JOE PANTORNO 
(ajoePantorno 

Joseph.pantorno@metro.us 

Justin Turner: A name 
that makes New York 
Mets fans shudder. 

The 32-year-old known 
best for his long red hair 
and beard seemingly 
burst onto the scene with 
the Los Angeles Dodgers 
in 2014, which was one of 
the most unpredictable 
things if you followed his 
career. For many Mets 
fans, they already know 
the stoiy. 

Turner made his MLB 
debut in 2009 with the 
Baltimore Orioles, a clean¬ 
shaven infielder that ap¬ 
peared in a combined 17 
games with the American 
League East side. 

He was selected off 
waivers in 2010 by the 



Medtronic 


Mets, joining a team 
with its infield set with 
second baseman Luis 
Castillo, shortstop Jose 
Reyes and third baseman 
David Wright. Because of 
that, he only played in 
four games. But Castillo 
was gone the next sea¬ 
son as Turner saw plenty 
of time at second base, 
pla 5 dng 78 of 117 games 
at the position. 

He was nothing more 
than a hght-hitting op¬ 
tion, batting .260 with 
four home runs and 51 
RBI. 

His pla 3 dng time only 
went down from there 
as he appeared in 94 
games in 2012 and 86 
in 2013 before he was 


granted free agency by 
the Mets. 

In those three sea¬ 
sons, he batted .265 with 
8 home runs and 86 RBI, 
which made it seem like 
the Mets weren’t going 
to be missing an34hing 
with his departure. 

Of course, they were 
wrong, though it’s unfair 
to fault management for 
letting him walk. The 
numbers simply suggest¬ 
ed that he wasn’t going 
to develop into an54hing 
more than a utility man. 

Turner, a Long Beach, 
CA native, signed with 
the Dodgers in 2014 and 
immediately took off. 

After batting .280 
with the Mets in 2013, 
Turner batted .340 in 
with seven home 

games 
the follow- 



JUSTIN TURNER 


mg season, 
showing a sign of 
things to come. 

His eye developed out 
of nowhere, his swing 
evolved into a potent 
weapon as he looked 
more patient at the 
plate. With an abil¬ 
ity to hit to all fields and 
adjust during an at- 
^ bat. Turner became 
, a valued member of 
^ the Dodgers lineup. 
Last season saw 
him hit a career- 
high 27 home 
runs while 
driving in 



90 RBI. This year he gar¬ 
nered his first-ever All- 
Star appearance, batting 
.322 with 21 round trip¬ 
pers. 

He’s been churning 
out big at-bats this Fall, 
including a walk-off, 
game-winning three-run 
home run in Game 2 of 
the NLDS to help unseat 
the defending champion 
Chicago Cubs. 

Just this past Tuesday 
in Game 1 of the World 
Series, Turner provided 
what proved to be an¬ 
other game-winning 
knock, a two-run home 
run in the sixth inning 
off Houston Astros ace 
Dallas Keuchel to break a 
1-1 deadlock. 

While he stars 
at third base, David 
Wright’s future with 
the team remains un¬ 
certain as he continues 
to battle injuries while 
their second-base situ¬ 
ation is very much in 
the air. With Amed Ro¬ 
sario set to take over 
at shortstop, veteran 
Asdrubal Cabrera could 
make the shift to sec¬ 
ond if the team brings 
him back this offseason. 
It remains to be seen 
just how bad of a taste 
he left in management’s 
mouth when he re¬ 
quested a trade midway 
through the season. 

Sometimes all you can 
do is shake your head 
and wonder what might 
have been. Only the Mets.

Aries Spend time and energy on your 
relationships with others. Love, romance 
and personal alterations that improve your 
emotional attitude should be priorities. 

O Taurus Listen carefully. Emotional matters 
will escalate if you or someone else refuses 
to consider all aspects of a situation. The 
help you offer a stranger will be rewarding. 

O Gemini A day trip or business meeting will 
allow you to show off what you have to 
offer. Socializing with peers will open doors. 
Romance will improve your life. 

© Cancer Put your energy into making home 
improvements and dealing with matters 
that will help you get along better with your 
neighbors, roommates or family. 

O Leo Organize your time. If you neglect 

friends or family, the complaints will start 
rolling in. Socializing will help you release 
stress. 

Virgo Situations may not be as they appear. 
Go over contracts, settlements or joint 
ventures carefully. Don't overreact when you 
should size up the situation. 


Libra A lifestyle or partnership change can be 
expected. Think matters through instead of 
letting your emotions take control. Don't be 
afraid of the unfamiliar. 

Scorpio You'll learn a lot if you listen to 
complaints as well as suggestions. Use the 
information you are given to help resolve an 
emotional situation. 

© Sagittarius Don't let what others do or say 
influence you. A moderate attitude will help 
ward off anyone trying to take advantage 
of you. 

© Capricorn Situations will swell up quickly. 

Controlled emotions and a practical attitude 
will help you avoid a blowout with someone 
you care about. 

© Aquarius Take action and make things hap¬ 
pen. An energetic approach to life and hap¬ 
piness will help you win favors. Less talk and 
more action will bring progressive results. 

Pisces Be careful when dealing with partner¬ 
ships or other people's assets. Sensitive 
issues will surface that could cause someone 
to overreact if you aren't careful, eugenialast
