NEW EVACUATIONS AS 
CALIF. WILDFIRES RAGE ON 


PALESTINIAN STABS 
ISRAELI IN JERUSALEM 


MORGAN ROUSSEAU, MANAGING EDITOR 

Inside today's Metro New York you'll 
find a heartwarming story about how 
ice cream is helping at-risk youth in the 
East Village, an argument for MTA fare 
increases (I know, I know), informa¬ 
tion on a new app that is basically the 
Uber of snow plows, and an in-depth 
analysis of President Trump's Diet Coke 
drinking habits. Good thing you picked 
up the paper, eh? But if you want even 
more Metro stories, visit our website 
metro.us. Thanks for reading. 



The largest California 
wildfire advanced on coastal 
towns near Santa Barbara 
on Sunday, stoked by the gusty 
winds and dry conditions that 
have fueled destructive blazes 
across the state's southern region. 
Authorities ordered residents in 
parts of Carpinteria and Montecito 
to evacuate early on Sunday as 
the Thomas Fire edged closer to 
the city of Santa Barbara, about 
100 miles west of Los Angeles. 


The blaze has already blackened 
155,000 acres and consumed 
hundreds of structures. Some 
half-dozen fires have raged across 
California since early last week. 

At least one home in Carpin¬ 
teria burned down on Sunday, 
the Santa Barbara County Fire 
Department said. The fire was 
only 15 percent contained as of 
Sunday morning, according to the 
California Department of Forestry 
and Fire Protection. 


A Palestinian stabbed 
an Israeli security 
guard at Jerusalem's 
main bus station on Sunday, 
police said, and violence flared 
near the U.S. Embassy in Beirut 
over President Donald Trump's 
recognition of Jerusalem as 
Israel's capital. Four days of 
street protests in the Palestin¬ 
ian territories over Trump's 
announcement on Wednesday 
have largely died down, but his 


overturning of long-standing 
U.S. policy on Jerusalem — a 
city holy to Jews, Muslims and 
Christians — drew more Arab 
warnings of potential damage to 
prospects for Middle East peace. 
"Our hope is that everything is 
calming down and that we are 
returning to a path of normal 
life without riots and without 
violence," Israeli Defense Minis¬ 
ter Avigdor Lieberman said on 
Army Radio.

SCULPTOR CHOSEN 
FOR NEW DIANA STATUE 


IRAQ HOLDS PARADE 
AFTER DEFEATING ISIS 


A sculptor who produced 
the image of Queen 
Elizabeth used on Britain's 
coins has been chosen to create 
a new statue of Princess Diana, 
the office of Princes William 
and Harry said on Sunday, to 
commemorate 20 years since her 
death. Ian Rank-Broad ley, whose 
effigy of the Queen has appeared 
on all UK and Commonwealth 
coinage since 1998, will design 
the statue, which now will not 


be unveiled until next year. "Ian 
is an extremely gifted sculptor 
and we know that he will create 
a fitting and lasting tribute to 
our mother," Prince William and 
his younger brother Harry said 
in a statement. In January, the 
brothers commissioned a statue 
in honor of their mother, who 
died in a Paris car crash 20 years 
ago to be erected outside their 
official London home Kensington 
Palace. 


An Iraqi military parade 
in Baghdad's heav¬ 
ily fortified Green Zone 
celebrated final victory over 
Islamic State on Sunday, with 
Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi 
looking on as troops marched 
in formation, their bodies 
spelling "victory day" in Arabic. 
Abadi, who is also commander- 
in-chief of the armed forces, 
listened solemnly to Quranic 
verses from a chapter titled 


al-Nasr, meaning victory. Iraqi 
forces recaptured the last 
areas still under Islamic State 
control along the border with 
Syria on Saturday and secured 
the western desert, marking 
the end of the war against the 
militants three years after they 
had captured about a third of 
Iraq's territory. The forces fight¬ 
ing Islamic State in Iraq and 
Syria now expect a new phase 
of guerrilla warfare.

Roy Moore campaign 
casts Alabama race as 
referendum on Trump 



Republican Senatorial candidate Roy Moore speaks during a campaign event, getty images 


Opinion polls 
show a tight race 
between Moore, a 
70-year-old con¬ 
servative Christian 
and former state 
judge, and Demo¬ 
crat Doug Jones, a 
63-year-old former 
U.S. attorney. 

The campaign of Roy 
Moore, the Republican 
candidate for U.S. sena¬ 
tor in Alabama who has 
been accused of sexual 
misconduct, appealed 
on Sunday to President 
Donald Trump’s sup¬ 
porters, sa 3 dng a vote for 
Moore would be a vote for 
Trump’s agenda. 

Dean Young, chief po¬ 
litical strategist for Moore, 
cast Jones as a hberal 
who would vote against 
Trump’s priorities such as 
building a wall on the U.S.- 
Mexico border and cutting 
taxes. 

“If the people of Ala¬ 
bama vote for this hberal 
Democrat Doug Jones, 
they’re voting against the 
president who they put in 
office at the highest level,” 
Young told ABC’s “This 
Week.” “So it’s very impor¬ 
tant for Donald Trump. ... 
If they can beat him, they 
can beat his agenda, be¬ 
cause Judge Moore stands 
with Donald Trump and 
his agenda.” 

Moore has been ac¬ 
cused of sexual miscon¬ 
duct toward women when 
they were teenagers and 
he was in his 30s, includ¬ 
ing one woman who said 


he tried to initiate sexual 
contact with her when 
she was 14. 

Moore has denied the 
misconduct allegations 
and said they were a result 
of “dirty politics.” He has 
said that he never met any 
of the women involved. 
Reuters has not indepen¬ 
dently verified any of the 
accusations. 

As the race tightens, 
Jones has cranked up his 
attacks on Moore over 
the allegations and made 
those charges central to 
his argument that Moore 
is an unsuitable choice. 

The efibrt by the 
Moore campaign to ahgn 
itself as closely as possible 
with Trump raises the 
stakes for the president in 
the Alabama race. 

Trump has endorsed 
Moore and praised him on 
Friday at a rally in Pensac¬ 
ola, Florida, near the Ala¬ 
bama state line. The presi¬ 
dent’s support of Moore 
came despite efforts by 
other senior Republicans, 
including Senate Majority 
Leader Mitch McConnell, 
to distance themselves 
from Moore. 

Alabama voters went 
strongly for Trump in last 
year’s presidential elec¬ 
tion, favoring him by 
62 percent to 34 
percent over Demo¬ 
crat Hillaiy Clin¬ 
ton. 

The growing 
wave of women 
reporting abuse 
or misconduct 
has brought 
down pow¬ 
erful men, 
from movie 


producer Harvey Wein¬ 
stein to popular television 
personality Matt Lauer. 

Repubhcan leaders 
have said that if Moore 
wins, he could face an 
immediate investigation 
by the Senate Ethics Com¬ 
mittee. 

Republican Richard 
Shelby, the senior U.S. 
senator from Alabama, 
said on CNN’s “State of 
the Union” that he did 
not vote for Moore and 
instead backed a write-in 
candidate. 

The editorial board 
of the AL.com website, 
which covers Alabama 
news, has endorsed Jones. 
In an editorial on Simday, 
the website urged conser¬ 
vative voters in Alabama 
to follow Shelby’s lead 
and consider a write-in 
candidate if they did not 
want to vote for Jones.

Alphabet Scoop changes young 
staff’s lives with ice cream 


A program of 
Father’s Heart Min¬ 
istries, the 15-year- 
old East Village ice 
cream shop 
teaches at-risk 
youth valuable job 
— and life — skills.

New York City is a hot¬ 
bed of artisanal ice 
cream shops, and like 
many of them, Alphabet 
Scoop makes ever 5 dhing 
in-house. 

But the creamy good¬ 
ness at the 15-year-old 
shop on East 11th Street 
isn’t just homemade, it’s 
homegrown, too, as the 
majority of its workers 
are at-risk youth from the 
nearby community. 

Alphabet Scoop 

opened in 2002 as a youth 
job-training and life-skills 
program of The Father’s 
Heart Ministries, which 
is next door, to give them 
the tools they need to suc¬ 
ceed in the future. 

“I think we lost our 
way on the value of a per¬ 
son and giving him or her 
the tools — nobody wants 
to be patient for them to 
develop, and that’s where 
the turnover is happen¬ 


ing in many industries,” 
said Robbie Vedral, man¬ 
ager of Alphabet Scoop. 
“Most of the challenges 
are life skills — these are 
inner-city kids that are 
challenged in many dif¬ 
ferent ways. Adult, heavy 
stuff is being laid on them 
at a really early age.” 

Hands-on training 
ranges from learning the 
importance of arriving 
not just on time but early 
and rising above outside 
forces to adhering to strict 
food-safety regulations. 

But for Shelby Fon¬ 
seca, one of Alphabet 
Scoop’s five youth 
employees, the most 
important skill so 
far was learning 
to “talk so much 
more,” the 21-year- 
old said. “It gives me 
the confidence in my ' 
own self.” 

“Shelby has done 
a tremendous job from 
where she was. You can 
see her personality is just 
very infectious, she’s very 
engaged with the custom¬ 
ers in a way she wasn’t in 
the very beginning,” Ve¬ 
dral said. “She’s one of the 
successes we’ve had here. 
I’m really proud.” 

If a current crowdfund¬ 
ing campaign reaches 
its $70,000 goal before 
it ends Dec. 31, Vedral 
hopes to take Alphabet 
Scoop’s training — and its 


*7 think we lost our way 
on the value of a person 
and giving him or her the 
tools - nobody wants 
to be patient for them to 
develop, and that's where 
the turnover is happening in 
many industries." 


Robbie Vedral 



workers — even further. 

The shop, he said, 
is first a job-training 
program, but it’s also a 
business that hopes to 
become self-sufficient, 
as its expenses and sala¬ 
ries are currently subsi¬ 
dized by the church. To 
do that. Alphabet Scoop 
needs to undergo a com¬ 
plete overhaul to mod¬ 
ernize its space and up¬ 


date its technology. 

“If we get newer stuff, 
I can really teach these 
A kids, really dig into 
^ how to manage in¬ 
ventory and the busi¬ 
ness better to show 
them real numbers 
and if you over-scoop 
or under-scoop, what 
that does to the bot¬ 
tom Hne,” Vedral said. 

As of Friday after¬ 
noon, the campaign had 
raised more than $41,000 
tax-deductible donations 
toward its $70,000 goal. 
Free scoops (with “aU the 
sprinkles you want!”) and 
quarts, T-shirts and totes 
and a private ice cream 
party are among the 
perks of donating.

WHY MTA FARE HIKES MAKE SENSE 



Billions are still needed from both the state and city to make up for past MTA cuts, and a fare hike may be the solution. 

GETTY IMAGES 


Any public official, 

MTA board member or 
transit advocate who op¬ 
poses planned subway 
fare hikes in 2019 and 
2021 misses the reason 
why they are needed. 

Over the past 53 
years since the Urban 
Mass Transportation Act 
of 1964, over $120 bil¬ 
lion dollars in combined 
city, state and federal 
taxpayers generated 
dollars have subsidized 
both the capital and 
operating costs for the 
MTA and its various 
operating agencies. 

For decades, under 
numerous past MTA 
five-year capital plans 
starting in 1981, both 
the city and state col¬ 
lectively cut billions of 
their own respective 
financial contributions. 
They repeatedly had 
the MTA refinance or 
borrow funds to acquire 
scarce capital funding 
formerly made up of 
hard cash from both 
City Hall and Albany. 

On a bipartisan basis, 
this included past Govs. 


LARRY 

PENNER 


Analysis 


Larry Penneris a 
transportation historian and 
advocate who previously 
worked 31 years for the U.S. 
Department of Transportation. 



Mario Cuomo, George 
Pataki, Elliot Spitzer 
and David Patterson. 
Gov. Andrew Cuomo 
has only made available 
$2.5 billion of the $8.3 
billion leaving a balance 
of $5.8 billion he prom¬ 
ised toward funding the 
$32 billion MTA 2015- 
2019 capital Program 
Plan plus $1 billion 
more in new funding 


to deal with this past 
summer’s subway and 
LIRR Penn Station crises 
NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio 
still owes most of his 
$2.5 billion contribu¬ 
tion toward the same 
program. 

Billions more are still 
needed from both the 
state and city to make 
up for past cuts over 
previous decades. Ev¬ 


eryone insisted that the 
MTA continue financing 
more and more of the 
capital program by bor¬ 
rowing. As a result, 17 
percent of the annual 
MTA budget goes for 
covering the costs of 
debt service payments. 
By the next MTA 2020- 
2024 Capital Program 
Plan, this will continue 
to grow closer to 20 


percent. This means less 
money is available for 
operations to provide 
more frequent service 
to riders. It also means 
there is less money just 
to maintain the state of 
good repair and safety. 
At the end of the day, 
the cupboard may be 
bare for any system 
expansion. 

Contrast City Hall 


and Albany with Wash¬ 
ington. Federal support 
for transportation has 
remained consistent 
and growing over past 
decades. When a crises 
occurred be it 9-11 
in 2001 or Hurricane 
Sandy in 2012, Wash¬ 
ington was there for 
us. Additional billions 
in assistance above and 
beyond yearly formula 
allocations from the 
Federal Transit Admin¬ 
istration was provided. 
In 2009, the American 
Recovery and Reinvest¬ 
ment Act provided 
billions more. 

Most federal trans¬ 
portation grants require 
a 20 percent hard-cash 
local share. In many 
cases, the Federal Transit 
Administration accepted 
toll credits instead of 
hard cash local share. 
This saved the MTA 
$1 billion in the previ¬ 
ous 2010-2014 five-year 
capital program. 

Even more will be 
saved under the $32 bil¬ 
lion 2015-2019 five-year 
capital program.

SnoHub app bnngs 
plow services to 
you on demand 


Founder James Albis 
says his business is 
bringing the ease 
of Uber to snow 
removal. 

O KRISTIN TOUSSAINT 
@kristindakota 

kristin.toussaint(ametro.us 

For people living in the 
city or the suburbs, the 
winter season comes 
with the responsibility 
of shoveling your drive¬ 
way and clearing off your 
steps all by yourself. 

To James Albis, deal¬ 
ing with snow is one 
of the biggest pains of 
the winter season, so he 
came up with a solution: 
a way to order snow¬ 
plow service on demand 
through an app. 

SnoHub, which Albis 
says is the “Uber of snow 


plows,” works in a simi¬ 
lar way to the ride-share 
service. The app connects 
people to nearby contrac¬ 
tors and alerts those con¬ 
tractors of snow removal 
needed in the area. 

Once the contractor 
accepts the job, the user 
can track the plower’s 
movements through an 
in-app map. When con¬ 
tractors arrive at each 
site, they take before- 
and-after pictures, prov¬ 
ing the job is done, and 
then the homeowners 
pays through the app. 

SnoHub launched 
last year just in Fairfield 
County, Connecticut, 
where Albis lives. This 
winter, the service is 
launching in the New 
York City, Philadelphia 
and Boston metro areas, 
among others. 

It wasn’t just clearing 


snow that inspired Albis, 
but the way he’s interact¬ 
ed with plow contractors 
in the past. He has had 
frustrating experiences, 
he said, waiting hours 
for a plow to come to his 
house, being asked to 
pay in cash and not get¬ 
ting the job done com¬ 
pletely. 

“When you’re living 
in a tech world and all of 
a sudden you’re forced to 
step back 40 years ago, 
it’s a problem. ... I said, 
‘Clearly, there has to be a 
better way,’ and 1 looked 
at companies that have 
been disruptive, like 
Uber,” he said. 

“People in this day 
and age only want to pay 
for what they use — they 
want to do things on

The contractors de¬ 
ployed through SnoHub 
are vetted through the 
company and verified 
to have the proper li¬ 
censing, insurance and 
background. Albis said 
SnoHub is also giving 
people the opportunity 
to earn extra income in 
the winter. 

“If you’re a painter, 
electrician, a firefighter 
— a lot of these guys 
have pickups and plows. 


and they want to earn 
some extra money,” he 
said. “By introducing all 
these new guys who are 
very idle in the winter 
time, we helped out so 
many different types of 
people last winter get 
through it.” 

As with Uber, Sno¬ 
Hub does take a bit of 
the cut from contrac¬ 
tors’ pay: a 30 percent 
fee on transactions. For 
the customer, prices 
start at $59 for 3 inches 
of snow, increasing with 


every inch, and they can 
see the price estimate 
before they book their 
service. 

Regular plow contrac¬ 
tors will still have work, 
Albis said, because their 
business comes from 
commercial accounts. By 
catering to residences, 
he’s hoping to make han¬ 
dling the winter more 
convenient for home- 
owners.

community. 

Gifts range from un¬ 
der $5 and up. Toys are 
delivered to our Metro 
offices in New York, 
Boston and Philadel¬ 
phia through Dec. 15, 
then distributed to local 
charities that serve un¬ 
derprivileged children 
in those cities. 

For those donating 
in New York, toys will 
go to the Coalition for 
the Homeless, then dis¬ 
tributed to local chil¬ 
dren. Boston’s Heading 
Home Inc. will receive 
the toys for that city,

The wish lists include 
toys for infants through

This year marks the 
eighth anniversary of 
the toy drive, which is 
named after Tony Met¬ 
calf, Metro’s longest- 
serving editor in chief. 
Mr. Metcalf oversaw the 
project for more than 


four years before passing 
away in 2013. 

Mr. Metcalf lit up ev¬ 
ery year as he saw the 
faces of children un¬ 
wrap their holiday gifts, 
and it’s our goal to keep 
that magic alive. 

“Tony felt we should 
use the size and scale 
of Metro to help others 
and he used enormous 
dedication and force 
to execute the project 
and every year make 
children in need a little 
happier during the holi¬ 
day season,” said Metro 
Chief Executive Officer 
Yggers Mortensen. “I 
am proud to continue 
this project in honor of 
Tony, and I hope all our 
readers, suppliers and 
members of the Metro 
team will help to make 
this yet another great 
Metro Magic year.” 

Metro is grateful for 
the toys already received 
at our offices. They’re 
stacked in the news¬ 
room, and each day the 
pile grows. We thank 
readers in advance for 
remembering the chil¬ 
dren who will spend the 
holidays in shelters or 
who may not have pres¬ 
ents to open. 

The last day to order 
toys is this Friday Dec. 
15.

DIET COKES & 

TV BINGES - NO WONDER 
THE PRESIDENT’S 
SPEECH IS SLURRED 



Do you have any idea 
what eight hours of televi¬ 
sion and a dozen Diet 
Cokes — a day! — can 
do to a 71-year-old brain? 
Sure, you do. We’ve aU 
had 324 days (and count¬ 
ing) to witness the tragic 
results. 

Late last week, lots of 
people were alarmed at 
Donald Trump’s slurred 
words during a pohcy 
address about Jerusalem. 
“God bless the United 
Shhh-tates,” the presi¬ 
dent woozed, and Twitter 
went crazy. 

Was it iU-fitting den¬ 
tures? Was it a momen¬ 
tary brain fart? Was it 
120 ounces of aspartame- 
infused, caramel-colored, 
fizzy-water sloshing in¬ 
side the poor man’s belly? 
While others warned of 
something more neuro- 
logically profound. White 
House spokesman Raj 
Shah responded dismis- 
sively: “His throat was 
diy. There’s nothing to it.” 

Beheve that if you 
want to. But the howling 
was loud enough that 
White House ofiicials did 
promise that Trump will 
get a head-to-toe medical 
exam early next year at 
Walter Reed National 
Military Medical Center, 
just like normal presi¬ 
dents do. 

All we’ve had to go on 
so far is a 2015 letter from 
Trump’s longtime per¬ 
sonal physician, named 
Dr. Harold Bomstein, who 
asserted that his paunchy 
patient would “unequivo¬ 
cally” be “the healthiest 
individual ever elected to 
the presidency.” 

Yeah, right. 

Now that the real doc¬ 
tors are in, the next ques¬ 
tion will be whether their 
exam reports will ever 
be released to the pubhc

Baby Boomers Benefitting From Knee Arthritis Ti 

How Cutting-Edge Treatment And The NYC Pain MD "Z" Factors Are Helping K 


New York City - Nothing is more true. A life 
with eonstant pain is not a life worth living. 

And if you ean’t stay aetive and do all the 
things you love - like walking, playing golf, ten¬ 
nis, vaeationing ete. It’s not really a life at all. 

...the Pain Is More Like A Prison 

And for generations, knee arthritis has 
given good, hard working people a life sentenee 
of pain and suffering. To make things worse, 
sliek marketers only add to the pain by 
promising wonder eures. Late night television 
and your mail box are filled with “wonder 
arthritis eures” that make wild elaims and sound 
too good to be true ... Because They Are 

Nothing is worse than getting your hopes 
up - spending your hard earned money - only to 
be let down time after time. 

It is easy to give up... 

But while marketers were peddling “won¬ 
der eures,” real doetors and researehers were 
hard at work trying to diseover a real medieal 
solution. Modem medieine eradieated small 
pox and polio. Through laser eye surgery, doe- 
tors ean give almost blind people perfeet 20/20 
vision. The potential eures on the horizon with 
breakthroughs like stem eell and regenerative 
therapies are endless. 

Solve The Riddle Of Arthritis Pain? 

For the past 3 years, that’s exaetly what a 
medieal elinie in New York City has been 
doing. The NYC Pain MD doetors have been 
able to help thousands of knee arthritis suffer¬ 
ers with eutting-edge treatments and teehnol- 
ogy older generations eould only dream about. 
One of these treatments in partieular has 
helped thousands of patents ease or eliminate 
pain and go back to doing their favorite 
activities like: walking, playing golf, tennis and 
many more. The treatment is called 
viscosupplementation. But wait. This is NOT 
the typical viscosupplementation. So if you 
are one of the many knee arthritis sufferers 
who already had viscosupplementation and did 
not get great results - what you are about to 
discover should be very important, to you in 
particular. It might even get you out of pain. 

Here is why: During viscosupplementa¬ 
tion, a special lubricating gel is put directly 
into your arthritic knee joint. This not only 
helps the knee joint to glide more smoothly, it 
acts as a cushion, protects the joint, and 
relieves a lot of pain. This is often referred to 
as “joint oil.” In many cases, when done 
properly, this can dramatically lessen knee 
pain for up to 6 months and much longer in 
many cases. 


And even better - if this treatment 
works for you the first time - it can be safely 
repeated when necessary and the results are 
often better for some. 

Like Threading A Needle? 

The key to this treatment being successful 
is actually getting the special lubricating gel 
directly into the joint where it can go to 
work. That’s why the doctors at NYC Pain 
MD use very advanced digital imaging that 
allows them to see directly into the joint and 
make sure the lubricating gel “hits the spot” 
and the treatment has the best odds for 
success. Studies show that doctors doing 
these types of procedures without this special 
imaging actually miss the joint space up to 
one third of the time! 



“I’ve had trouble with my knee walking. 
I’m a golfer and want to play golf but I couldn’t. 
I made the call and went and it’s the best thing 
I ever did. It’s just - now I can play golf, I can 
walk, I can climb stairs, I can do things I did 
many years ago”. 

“It’s the smartest thing ever did” “Since 
I’ve been going for the treatment for my knees I 
don’t’ take any pills, I take not over the counter 
medication..” 

“This a good alternative to surgery.” “I am 
so glad I went. I’m so confident I feel so good 
about it and I recommend It to everybody.” 
William La Spina . Golf Enthusiast 

(While NYC Pain MD cannot say all patients 
will respond like this we can say they are 
possible. Every patient is individual and results 
will vary, patient to patient.) 


Why Treatment Can Fail 

This is why viscosupplmentation can fail 
for some people. It is also why many knee 
arthritis sufferers come to NYC Pain MD 
after failed treatments elsewhere... and are 
finally able to get relief. It is not uncommon 
for patients to travel hours for the advanced 
treatments given at NYC Pain MD. 

Patients Should Be Assured About 
Precision Treatments 

ONE BIG MISTAKE we have heard 
about is to use digital imaging or ultra-sound 
to mark the knee and then shut off the 
imagining and then not use it during the treat¬ 
ment procedure.!!! This means the doctor 
did not actually see if the lubricating gel 
went exactly where it was intended. The 
only way to know for sure if the procedure 
was as accurate as possible - and the 
lubricating gel went precisely into the joint 
space - is to use the digital imaging during 
the entire procedure. You can actually see 
the lubricating: ^el as it ^oes where it is 

needed. If you did not actually see it on 
the imaging screen - you do not know for 
sure if you actually got the proper 
treatment applied to the damaged area. 

If you have already had this procedure 
without this advanced imaging... Or if it was 
no used throughtout the procedure, there is a 
good chance you did not get the maximum 
results you could and should have received. 

“Clearly, technology 
is only as good as 
doctors using it... 
and clearly 
experience matters” 

That’s why, if you need heart surgery, 
you go to a heart surgeon... Not a general 
practitioner. At NYC Pain MD you will be 
seen by doctors who are specially trained in 
this procedure... Do it every day... and see 
thousands of patients every year. The latest 
technology combined with experienced and 
skilled doctors gets the best results possible. 
You will not be treated by a nurse or 
physician’s assistant ...but always by a highly 
trained doctor 

Who Is This Treatment For? 

This treatment is not for everyone. But it 
is for a lot of people who suffer with knee ar¬ 
thritis. Especially if you would like to avoid 
total knee replacement surgery and possible 
lessen or eliminate your pain. This treatment 












reatments Their Parents Could Only Dream About 

nee Arthritis Sufferers Throughout The Tri-State Area Get Back On Their Feet 


may help you if you have knee pain due to 
arthritis. It may also help you if you do not 
have dramatie signs of arthritis on x-ray. 

Studies show that arthritis is present long before 
it ean be seen on x-ray. In faet, the sooner you 
start this treatment the better. So, if you have 
knee pain - seeing one of the speeially trained 
medieal doetors at NYC Pain MD eould be the 
answer you are looking for. This is important - 
this is especially for you if you have had 
viscosupplmentation in the past without 
good results. 

Many patients who did not have good results 
elsewhere are often able to get a very favorable 
results beeause of the advanee teehnology and 
proeedure experienee at NYC Pain MD 

In faet some patients have deeided to eaneel 
knee surgery and others go baek to a aetive life¬ 
style they had before it was stolen by 
all the pain.

reviews of President Don¬

The ornament, shaped 
like one of Trump’s red

“Fantastic! I heard this

photo session, so it said 
“No Thanks.” SAD!” 

“The other ornament 
wasn’t perfect, but it was 
perfectly qualified for its 
position. ... I had request¬ 
ed a different ornament, 
but for some reason, my 
college elected to get this 
one in its place. I don’t un¬

Haley: Women acciiseis 
should be heard, even 
if Trump is target 

Washington has 
been roiled by 
sexual misconduct 
scandals, with ac¬ 
cusations leading to 
the resignations last 
week of three mem¬ 
bers of Congress. 

Nikki Haley, the U.S. am¬ 
bassador to the United 
Nations, said on Sun¬ 
day that any woman 
who has felt violated 
or mistreated by a man 
has every right to speak 
up, even if she is accus¬ 
ing President Donald 
Trump. 

“Women who ac¬ 
cuse anyone should be 
heard,” Haley said on 
CBS’s “Face the Nation.” 

“They should be heard, 
and they should be dealt 
with.” 

The growing wave 
of women reporting 
abuse or misconduct has 
brought down powerful 
men, from movie pro¬ 
ducer Harvey Weinstein 
to popular television 
personality Matt Lauer. 

Haley, discussing that 
cultural shift, applauded 
the women who have 
come forward: “Fm 
proud of their strength. 

Fm proud of their cour¬ 
age.” 

Asked how people 
should assess the accus¬ 
ers of the president, Hal¬ 
ey said, it was “the same 
thing.” 

More than 10 women 
have accused Trump of 
sexual misconduct be¬ 
fore he was president.

lican state of Alabama 
will cast their ballots 
in a race involving Re¬ 
publican Roy Moore, a 
former state judge, and 
Democrat Doug Jones, a 
former U.S. attorney. 

Moore has been ac¬ 
cused of sexual miscon¬ 
duct toward women 
when they were teen¬ 
agers and he was in his 
30s. One woman said he 
tried to initiate sexual 
contact with her when 
she was 14. 

Reuters has not in¬ 
dependently verified 
the accusations, which 
Moore, a conservative 
Christian, has denied. 

Many Republicans, 
including Alabama’s 
senior U.S. senator, 
Richard Shelby, have 
distanced themselves 
from Moore. But Trump 
has endorsed him, say¬ 
ing he wants to see 
the Senate seat stay in 
Republicans’ hands.

While filming a seg¬ 
ment of the television

women. 

Trump has denied the 
misconduct allegations, 
although he apologized 
for his comments, 
which he called “locker 
room” talk. 

White House spokes¬ 
woman Sarah Sanders 
said on Thursday that 
sexual harassment al¬ 
legations against Trump 
were addressed by the 
American people when 
they voted him into of¬ 
fice in November 2016. 

Asked whether 

Trump’s election settled 
the matter, Haley said: 
“That’s for the people 
to decide. I know that 
he was elected, but 
women should always 
feel comfortable coming 
forward, and we should 
all be willing to listen to 
them.”

Former British celebrity 
publidst Max Clifford 
dies in prison 

Britain's best-known publicist, 
Max Clifford, died on Sunday 
after collapsing in prison, 
where he was serving an eight- 
year sentence for indecently 
assaulting teenage girls in the 
1970S and 1980s. 

Britain's justice ministry 
said he had died in hospital. 

"As with all deaths in custody 
there will be an investigation 
by the independent Prisons 


and Probation Ombudsman. 
Our condolences are with Mr. 
Clifford's family at this difficult 
time," a prison service spokes¬ 
woman said in a statement. 

The BBC said it understood 
that the 74 -year-old had col¬ 
lapsed in his cell on Thursday 
while trying to clean it, then 
again the following day. 

Clifford's conviction in 2014 
was the first from an inquiry 
into historical sex abuse trig¬ 
gered by reports that the late 
BBC TV presenter Jimmy Savile 



Max Clifford getty images 


had been a prolific sex offender 
for decades. 

Clifford, whose clients 
had included TV music mogul 
Simon Powell and U.S. boxer 
Muhammad Ali, was found 
guilty of eight counts of 
indecently assaulting four girls 
aged 14 to 19 between 1977 
and 1984. 

He had denied all charges, 
saying the allegations were 
"utterly repulsive" lies by fanta¬ 
sists and opportunists.

After Brexit, 
UK aims for 
trade deal with 
EU that tops 
Canada pact 



meresa may, u.^. prime minister, gestures wniie speaxing auring a news con¬ 
ference at the European Commission building in Brussels, Belgium, getty images 


Despite Davis 
striking a confident 
tone, EU officials 
say they will only 

launch negotia¬ 
tions on a legally 
binding treaty after 
Britain leaves and 
becomes a “third 
country,” according 
to draft negotiating 
guidelines. 

After securing an initial 
agreement on Friday 
to move Brexit talks to 
a second phase, Prime 
Minister Theresa May is 
keen to start discussing 
future ties with the EU, 
and especially the t 3 ^e 
of trading agreement to 
tiy to offer greater cer¬ 
tainty for businesses. 

“It’s not that com¬ 
plicated, it comes right 
back to the alignment 
point. ... We start in full 
alignment, we start in 
complete convergence 
so we can work it out 
from there,” Davis told 
the BBC’s Andrew Marr 
show. 

“The thing is how we 
manage divergence so it 
doesn’t undercut the ac¬ 
cess to the market,” he 
said, describing his pre¬ 
ferred deal as “Canada 
plus plus plus”. 

The EU has been con¬ 
sidering a post-Brexit 


free trade deal with Brit¬ 
ain along the lines of 
one agreed last year with 
Canada. 

But the UK economy 
is nearly twice the size of 
Canada’s and British offi¬ 
cials have said that their 
current alignment with 
EU standards and much 
closer trading links with 
the continent give them 
scope for an even deeper 
relationship. 

May has been hailed 
by many in her deeply 
divided Conservative 
party for rescuing the 
agreement to unlock the 
Brexit talks by offering 
EU member Ireland and 
her allies in Northern 
Ireland a pledge to avoid 
any return of a hard bor¬ 
der. 

By playing with the 
wording. May agreed 
that if the two sides 
failed to agree an overall 
Brexit deal, the United 
Kingdom would keep 
“full alignment” with 
those rules of the EU’s 
single market that help 
cooperation between Ire¬ 
land’s north and south. 

Davis described the 
commitment as more of 
a “statement of intent” 
than a legally binding 
measure — something 
that might reassure 
hardline Brexit cam¬ 
paigners who fear that it 
could imply that Britain 
was leaving the EU in 
name only, reuters

Ready for some scary 
comedy that’s not CNN? 
Watch ‘Future Man’ 


Seth Rogen plays on 
all of our fears as he 
avenges the universe. 



Seth Rogen is the 
comedy genius behind 
everything from 
Pumbaa’s voice (in the 
upcoming live-action 
“Lion King”) to each 
iteration of “Kung Fu 
Panda.” Not to mention 
“The Interview,” which 
drew the U.S. as close 
to war with North Ko¬ 
rea as possible — pre- 
Trump, that is. 

His latest (as pro¬ 
ducer) is “Future Man,” 
a new Hulu series about 
a janitor who lives with 
his parents who is des¬ 
tined to save the world 
because of his epic 
score on a computer 
game. It’s the apoca¬ 
lypse, but funny. 


What is it about the 
world ending that is so 
appealing? 

I think everyone likes 
to hallucinate about 
what might happen 
at that moment. As a 
child, I would think 
about what it would be 
like to have the ability 
to end the world. As 
an adult. I’ve been fas¬ 
cinated by the subject 
and it’s great to do 
comedy about some¬ 
thing that terrifies 
everyone. 

Was "Future Man” 
always meant to be a 
series? 

It was conceived first 
as a movie. But almost 
at the end we realized 
that it worked more as 
a pilot of something 
that we were interested 
in seeing later. 

How did you decide 


on Josh Hutcherson 
as the star? 

A couple of years ago 
we made a movie 
called “The Disaster 
Artist” — Josh had 
a very small role 
there, but was 
really funny. I was 
impressed by his 
ability to give 
so much 
laughter 
in such 
a short 
time. 

Do 
you 
wor¬ 
ry 

about 
falling 
into - 
tropes 
when 
you delve 
back into 
the world 
of the ' 80 S 
and '90S? 



J 


"Future Man” stars Eliza Coupe (from the future) and Josh Flutcherson (the janitor-turned-hero). 

HULU 



I al- will always be in my 

ways projects. Yes, I must 

use say that there are films 
things that I always return 

that to and, in fact, are the 

I’ve ones that prompted 

grown me to do this. Some of 

up them are Pulp Fiction 

with. or Reservoir Dogs, both 

Pop by (Quentin Taran- 

culture tino. References aren’t 

from things we think about 

the ’80s a lot because they come 
and ’90s out naturally — they’re 


elements that we grew 
up with. 

What are your dream 
roles? 

I want to be in “Law & 
Order: Special Victims 
Unit.” I’d like to join 
the police unit because 
I think I have every¬ 
thing it takes to be 
good. In every episode 
I see, I feel I can help.

Your guide to the Dyker Heights Xmas Lights 



How to get lit at 
NYC’s most epic 
holiday display. 



Every year during the 
holidays, Dyker Heights 
transforms into the most 
lit neighborhood in New 
York City. Literally. Once 
Thanksgiving is toast, 
the residents of the 
South Brookl 5 m enclave 
go all out with festive 
lights, blow-up Rudolphs, 
life-size nativity scenes, 
Christmas music on 
blast and an 5 d:hing else 
you can imagine in an 
extremely extra holiday 
display. 

Seeing the Dyker 
Heights Christmas lights 
has arguably become as 
much of a NYC holiday 
tradition as going to 
the Rockefeller Center 
Christmas tree hghting 
or stroUing Manhattan’s 
over-the-top Fifth Avenue 
window displays. 


The only deterrent is 
that it’s a bit of a trek if 
you don’t already live in 
South Brooklyn. But we 
believe in your ability to 
get your grown self down 
there and celebrate the 
reason for the season. 
Here’s everything you 
need to know to do so. 

Where is it exactly? 

You’ll find the holiday 


mecca between 11th and 
13th Aves and 83rd and 
86th Streets in Dyker 
Heights, located between 
Bay Ridge and Benson- 
hurst. 

How to get there 

While you’d think driving 
is the best option, traffic 
and parking tends to be a 
headache, so it might be 
best to find a car alterna¬ 


tive. Via subway, take a 
Brookl 5 m-bound D train 
to 71st Street, and then 
it’s about a 15-minute 
uphiU walk fi-om there. 
Or ride the B4 bus to 
Bay Ridge Parkway and 
12th Ave. to get a bit 
closer. You can always 
bike there. And if you’re 
feeling adventurous, you 
could ride the NYC Ferry 
to the Bay Ridge Ferry 


Terminal and then it’s a 
10-minute L3dt,15 minute 
bike ride, or half-hour 
bus ride. Be sure to arrive 
well before 9 p.m., when 
residents tend to turn 
their lights off 

Take a tour 

If you go on your own, 
it’s free and you can take 
in the opulence at your 
own pace. But if you’re 


hoping to learn a bit 
more about the history 
of the tradition and the 
neighborhood, you 
might opt for a guided 
tour. There are a few 
slots left on the Slice of 
Brooklyn bus tour, ($50/ 
adults, $40/kids) which 
shuttles passengers from 
Manhattan every night 
in December except 
Christmas Eve, Christ¬ 
mas Day and New Year’s 
Eve. There’s also Free 
Tours by Foot, which 
offers pay-what-you-wish 
(or $2 donation to Toys for 
Tots) walking tours at 7 
p.m. Friday, Saturday and 
Sunday through Dec. 15, 
then daily through Dec. 
30. There are a handful 
of tickets ($35) left for 
New York Adventure 
Club’s guided walking 
tour, Dec. 28 at 7 p.m. 

Pro tip: The spectacle 
is best enjoyed with a 
thermos of hot chocolate 
or a warm boozy treat. 

The Dyker Heights Christ¬

The Liberty Science 
Center now has 
the country’s largest, 
most high-tech 
planetarium.

If there’s one scenario in 
which size matters, it’s 
when you’re trying to 
show the entire known 
universe on one screen. 

The big-deal open¬ 
ing of the year for i 
science nerds is the 
Jennifer Chalsty Plan- ' 
etarium, now open at 
New Jersey’s Liberty 
Science Center. 

Located 30 minutes 
from Lower Manhattan, 
the planetarium is not 
only the largest in the 
country, it’s the fourth 
largest in the world. 

“You can fit any other 
planetarium in the West¬ 
ern Hemisphere inside 
the Jennifer Chalsty 
Planetarium,” says Paul 
Hoflhnan, the science cen¬ 
ter’s president and CEO. 


“Visitors will be able to 
fly through the universe, 
experience the grandness 
and vastness of space, 
roam planetary surfaces, 
navigate asteroid fields, 
and watch the latest full- 
dome movies.” 

At 89 feet in diameter, 
it dwarfs the American

"To Worlds Beyond" 


Museum of Natural Histo¬ 
ry’s 68-foot-wide Hayden 
Planetarium. (They’ve 
still got Neil DeCrasse Ty¬ 
son though.) 

But size isn’t the only 
thing that matters. The 
Chalsty has 88 million 


pixels, making its reso¬ 
lution is 32 times better 
than the high-definition 
TV in your living room, 
with 10 projectors and 
a lighting system that 
can render 281 trillion 
colors. 

AQ of this fancy tech 
will come in handy when 
the planetarium becomes 
the first place to see a 
new 3D recreation of the 
Orion Nebula, the birth¬ 
place of new stars and 
planets. 

“Our full-dome, 

I immersive recreation 
of the Orion Nebula 
f will allow our plan¬ 
etarium visitors to ex¬ 
perience what it’s like 
to travel into the heart 
of this nebula in a level of 
detail never before seen,” 
says Hoffman. 

Shows include a 
45-minute journey all the 
way to the edge of space 
as seen by NASA probes 
and a half-hour tour of 
our own solar system, 
from the valleys of Mars 
to the methane geysers of 
Neptune’s moon Triton. 
At the end of every show.

ad placements designed 
by big agencies in order to 
cram products down our 
throats. The buyer-seller 
relationship used to be 
involuntary, to some de¬ 
gree. After all, did anyone 
really enjoy Sea Monkeys, 
Chia Pets or the musical 
stylings of the Baha Men? 
The short answer is: No. 
Today, people can see 
these bulls—^t boardroom 
tactics for what they re¬ 
ally are and choose to en¬ 
gage more actively with 
social-media influencers 
to get recommendations 
on everyday products. 

Influencers are ev¬ 
eryday people turned 
huge sensations online. 
By using platforms like 
Instagram, Facebook, 
and Snapchat, these e- 
famous folks are paid to 
post about their favorite 
products to their throngs 
of followers. This trend 
has revolutionized the 
marketing industry and 
you can attribute it to one 
central belief: Everyday 
people respond to human¬ 
ity. More people will buy 
something a “fiiend” rec¬ 
ommends than an actual 
Kardashian. 

CSO Adam Rivietz 
recognized this and co¬ 
founded his firm, #Paid, 
to help companies pair 
up with popular web 
influencers in order to 
help sell products to fol¬ 
lowers. These companies 
aren’t rinky-dink mom 
and pops, either; #Paid 
has worked with some 
of the biggest brands out 
there, like Coca-Cola, 
Microsoft, and Airbnb. 


So why do these huge in¬ 
ternational names look 
for regular people to sell 
their products instead 
of, say, celebrities? 

“[Celebrities] are tiying 
to parlay their real-world 
fame online, whereas an 
influencer’s entire fame 
was built online,” ex¬ 
plains Rivietz, “across the 
board even if you com¬ 
pare a traditional celeb¬ 
rity with an influencer, of 
the same follower count, 
the engagement rates are 
always higher from an 
influencer. It’s because 
of that personal relation¬ 
ship, because you’ve seen 
them grow and because 
they’re more relatable.” 

One of #Paid’s big¬ 
gest success stories is 
Christian Colhns, aka @ 
WeeklyChris. Once a shy 
teen from the west coast 
of Canada, Colhns started 
posting videos on You¬ 
Tube and gained a huge 
fohowing. He now has 3.6 
milhon followers on Ins¬ 
tagram and 1.69 million 
followers on Twitter and 
multiple endorsements 
from companies that pay 
him to post his recom¬ 
mendations to his follow¬ 
ers that value his opinion. 

“In terms of branding, 
it works veiy well when 
there’s a natural, organic 
relationship with the 
brand,” Colhns says, “be¬ 
cause there’s such an in¬ 
timate relationship with 
my fohowers, and it’s 
something I genuinely en¬ 
joy, it would be like your 
best friend recommend¬ 
ing something.” 

Rivietz believes that if 


a brand has to choose be¬ 
tween a seh-made social- 
media-savvy influencer, 
hke Colhns, or a busy ce¬ 
lebrity who could change 
their brand ahegiance 
overnight, the choice is 
a no-brainer. “Influenc- 
ers are content creators 
first. That’s why they’ve 
risen to the top of social 
media,” says Rivietz, “be¬ 
cause they create this 
incredible content that 
actually resonates with an 
audience and that argu¬ 
ably speaks to a brand’s 
target audience better 
than the brand knows 
how to speak to them.” 

The company repre¬ 
sents only influencers 
who have a minimum of 
5,000 followers on their 
platforms but they And 
that influencers that have 
25,000 to 250,000 follow¬ 
ers have proved time and 
time again to be able to 
give their clients a good 
return on investment. 
After all, phones are the 
new billboards and as 
Rivietz sees it, influencers 
hke Colhns are the new 
Don Draper. 

“What Instagram has 
become is our new maga¬ 
zine,” he says. “You get 
to pick whatever type of 
content you want and just 
hke you used to flick pages 
through a magazine you 
are now flicking through 
your feed. You can make 
your own subscriptions 
by fohowing these influ¬ 
encers. The invention of 
social media has made 
it possible for anyone to 
have a voice and gain a 
large fohowing.”

SPORTS 27 



Eli Manning was decent in his return as starting guarterback of the Giants, throwing for 228 yards with a touchdown and two interceptions, getty images 


Eli whimSj Iwif familiar far fiianfs 


The Cowboys 
dumped the Giants 
late, 30-10. 



KRISTIAN DYER 
@KristianRDyer 

sports@metro.us 


Tight for much of the 
game, three touchdowns 
inside the final eight 
minutes of the fourth 
quarter lifted the Dallas 
Cowboys to a 30-10 
win over the New York 
Giants on Sunday at 
MetLife Stadium. With 
the loss, the hapless 
Giants are now 2-11. 

In their first game 
under interim head 
coach Steve Spagnuolo, 
the Giants showed life 
and enthusiasm despite 
a score line that would 
indicate a blowout. The 
Giants kept things close 
for much of the game 
as the two teams were 
knotted up at 10 for 
much of the second half 


But eventually, the play- 
makers on the Cowboys 
broke through. 

With the win, the 
Cowboys saw their slim 
playoff hopes improve as 
their record bumped up 
to 7-6. 

The Giants did have 
some struggles moving 
the ball but they limited 
turnovers and mistakes, 
things that have been 
costly and have plagued 
them much of this year. 
In Eli Manning’s return 
as the starting quarter¬ 
back, the Giants were 
able to move the ball 
but struggled to sustain 
drives. 

The four-time Pro 
Bowl quarterback was 
31-of-46 for 228 yards 
with a touchdown and 
two interceptions. 

Tied 10-10 midway 
through the fourth quar¬ 
ter, Dak Prescott hung in 
the pocket well, finding 
Cole Beasley on a flat 
route. The Cowboys wide 


receiver cut and weaved 
for a 54-yard reception 
through the heart of the 
Giants secondary before 
being tackled at the 20 
yard-line. On the next 
play, Prescott hit tight 
end Jason Witten over 
the top for a touchdown 
and what would become 
a 17-10 lead for the 
Cowboys. 

The Cowboys’ next 
possession was capped 
off by running back Rod 
Smith’s 81-yard catch 
and run, again through 
the heart of the Giants 
secondary. 

Here are three things 
we learned about the 
Giants Sunday: 

Good to be back 

With Manning under 
center, the Giants cer¬ 
tainly seemed to have a 
bit of confidence back, 
the veteran barking out 
audibles and systemati¬ 
cally moving the Giants 


down the field in the 
first half 

All told, it was a 
solid game for Manning, 
showing well one week 
after being benched. 

It is crystal clear that 
the Giants struggles on 
offense aren’t his fault 
at this point. His two 
interceptions both came 
with the Giants trailing 
and desperately trying 
to move the ball. Hard 
to pin either intercep¬ 
tion on him given the 
circumstances. 

steady Spags 

In his first game as 
interim head coach of 
the Giants, Spagnuolo 
had a good, though 
somewhat plodding 
gameplan. The big 
takeaway is that he had 
his team focused and 
ready to play. Unlike the 
past few weeks where 
the Giants seemed to 
lack a spark, this young 
team fared well and

hung with a team in the 
hunt for the playoffs. 

The defense was buzzing 
for three quarters, even 
with players dropping in 
and out of the game due 
to injuries and getting 
banged up. The offense 
stuck to their simple if 
somewhat boring plan to 
run the ball and sprinkle 
in some screens. Unlike 
his predecessor, Spag¬ 
nuolo seemed to have 
a pulse on the sideline 
and showed it. The team 
lacked big plays and 
pla 5 miakers down the 
stretch, though, some¬ 


thing Spagnuolo can’t 
control at this juncture. 

Good rookie 

In the most extended 
action of his young NFL 
career, running back 
Wa 3 me Gallman looked 
good. Gallman, with just 
271 rushing yards this 
whole year on 66 carries, 
showed flashes of poten¬ 
tial but never got a real 
prolonged run of snaps. 

In an extended run 
on Sunday, Gallman 
was more than solid. 

He moved well and was 
patient waiting for holes 
to develop, cutting well. 
While he missed a big 
hole once or twice, he 
was overall reliable — 
something that one 
of the worst rushing 
offenses in the league 
could surely get used to. 

Gallman led the Gi¬ 
ants in rushing with 12 
carries for 59 yards and 
showed some good elu¬ 
siveness in the process.

Denver Broncos 
was the epitome of Gang 
Green not being able 
to take advantage of 
what should’ve been a 
gimme win. 

Heading into the 
season, the Broncos (4-9) 
were thought to be a 
legit playoff contender, 
while the Jets (5-8) were 
thought to be pretend¬ 
ers. But as the season 
unfolded, it was the 
Broncos that faded after 
a 3-1 start, while Gang 
Green seemed to gain 
steam with each surpris¬ 
ingly competitive week. 
Even after close defeats, 
the Jets seemed to be 
on track, had players 
openly talking about the 
playoff race in the locker 
room, and gave their 
long-suffering faithful 
hope. 

Alas, Sunday’s lack¬ 
luster performance in 
Denver pulled the rug 
from under their fans’ 
feet, brought them back 
to reality, and all but 
ended any hopes of a 
postseason march. 

The Jets came out flat 
and stayed flat-line for 
the entire game. Quar¬ 
terback Josh McGown 
was coming off an AEG 
Offensive Player of the 
Week performance, but 
he was a non-factor in 
Denver before bowing 
out with a left hand 
injury at the 2:54 mark 
of the third quarter. 
Backup Bryce Petty was 
awful in relief, but even 
when McGown was on 
the field, the Jets’ of¬ 


fense looked lost. 

McGown finished 
6-of-12 for 46 yards and 
an interception before 
being finished off by a 
suddenly rejuvenated 
Broncos pass rush. His 
first half consisted of 
three completions and 
two turnovers. Petty 
went 2-of-9 for 14 yards 
and has likely shown the 
Jets’ brass that he cannot 
be entrusted to take the 
reins once McGown rides 
off into the sunset. The 
situation that Petty was 
thrown into obviously 
wasn’t ideal for any 
quarterback, let alone 
a career backup, but he 
looked very poor in the 
limited sample size that 
he provided. 

The quarterback play 
wasn’t the only regres¬ 
sion this week, as it was 
a total team defeat — 
shocking, considering 
the Jets’ wild card hfe 
was on the line. Yet the 
team put together argu¬ 
ably its worst showing 
of the season - and that 
includes that dreadful 
loss in Tampa when the 
Buccaneers were with¬ 
out its starting quarter¬ 
back Qameis Winston) 
and top receiver (Mike 
Evans), and journey¬ 
man quarterback Ryan 
Fitzpatrick led the way 
for the Buccaneers. 

Gang Green’s defense 
was just as uninspiring, 
as it couldn’t slow down 
Broncos quarterback 
Trevor Siemian, or con¬ 
tain wideout Demaryius 
Thomas.

© Aries Set up meetings that will help you 

address important matters before the year 
comes to a close. Personal growth and will 
encourage you to make wise choices. 

O Taurus Dig deep and find out all you can. 

Knowledge is power, and knowing how to 
apply it when faced with someone trying to 
outdo you will help you gain ground. 

O Gemini Participate in festivities that will bring 
you in touch with old friends or colleagues. 
Express your feelings and offer kind gestures, 
but don't get talked into something you 
probably shouldn't do. 

Cancer Address personal issues before 
someone complains or makes demands. Have 
a plan ready to offset an unsavory choice 
someone wants you to make. 

O Leo Make plans to get together with old 

friends or to go shopping for items you want 
to purchase before the year ends. Share your 
feelings with someone you love. 

Virgo Be careful how you handle matters 
pertaining to your home and family. Not 
everyone will be happy with the limitations 
you set or criticisms you make. 


© Libra Get into the spirit of the season. Ask 
questions and find out how old friends and 
family are doing. Showing consideration and 
toward others will make you feel good. 

Scorpio Do whatever you can to help those 
less fortunate. Your effort will be appreciated, 
and you will discover something or someone 
that gives you incentive to follow your dream. 

© Sagittarius Take the time to schmooze with 
your peers. Being a good listener will help 
you form advantageous relationships. Update 
your image and make love a priority. 

Capricorn Look at the big picture as well as 
your expectations. Excessive behavior will 
fead to personal and emotional loss. Only 
^ take on what you can handle. 

© Aquarius Listen to your heart, not to what 
others tell you. Someone is likely to offer in¬ 
formation that won't apply to your situation 
or that could end up costing you time. 

Pisces Listen to what others have to say. The 
more information you gather, the easier 
it will be for you to communicate your 
thoughts and contributions, eugenialast
