The White House on Wednesday released a transcript of 
Trump’s call with Ukraine’s president, which critics say is 
a “smoking gun” that proves he solicited help from the 
foreign leader for political gain; in a press conference, 
Trump denied wrongdoing: “I didn’t do it.” 2

THINGS 

J TO 

KNOW 



Summary of call 
released day after 
impeachment 
inquiry launch. 

President Donald Trump 
pressed Ukraine’s presi¬ 
dent to investigate a po¬ 
litical rival, former Vice 
President Joe Biden, in 
coordination with the 
U.S. attorney general and 
Trump’s personal lawyer, 
according to a summary of 
a telephone call released 
by the Trump administra¬ 
tion on Wednesday 

The official account 
of the half-hour July call 
laid bare an astonishing 
exchange of requests, 
pledges and ingratiation, 
including some unrelated 
to Biden, such as when 
Trump asked President 
Volodymyr Zelensky “to 
do us a favor” involving a 
controversy arising from 
the 2016 U.S. presidential 
campaign. 

Tire summary was 
released a day after U.S. 
House of Representatives 
Speaker Nancy Pelosi said 
the Democratic-led cham¬ 
ber was launching an 
official impeachment in¬ 
quiry, setting up a political 
showdown that threatens 
Trump’s presidency as he 
campaigns for re-election 
in 2020. 

The details of the July 
25 call drew furious reac¬ 
tions from Democrats, 
who accused Trump of 
soliciting Ukraine’s help 
to smear Biden, the front¬ 
runner among Democrat¬ 
ic candidates seeking to 
challenge the Republican 


Seeking favors, Trump asked Ukraine 
president to investigate Biden

“What 
those 
notes re¬ 
flect is 
a classic 
Mafia-like 
shake- 
down of 
a foreign 
leader. 

Rep. Adam Schiff 

president in the November 
2020 election. 

The call occurred af¬ 
ter Trump had ordered 
a freeze of nearly $400 
million in American aid 
to Ukraine, which the 
administration only later 
released. 

“What those notes re¬ 
flect is a classic Mafia-like 
shakedown of a foreign 


leader,” said Democrat 
Adam Schiff, chairman 
of the House Intelligence 
Committee. 

Republicans said it 
showed Democrats were 
wrong to move forward 
with impeachment. 
“There was no quid pro 
quo and nothing to justify 
the clamor House Demo¬ 
crats caused,” said Doug 
Collins of Georgia, the top 
Republican on the House 
Judiciary Committee. 

Trump and Zelensky 
appeared side by side in 
New York on the side¬ 
lines of the U.N. General 
Assembly and denied 
impropriety in their call, 
with Ukraine’s president 
telling reporters: “Nobody 
pushed me.” 

At a news conference 
closing out three days of 
meetings in New York 
around the United Na¬ 


tions General Assembly, 
Trump accused Democrats 
of launching the impeach¬ 
ment inquiry “because 
they can’t beat us at the 
ballot.” 

In a statement, Biden 
said Trump put personal 
politics above his oath of 
office and that Congress 
must hold him to account 
for “his abuse of power.” 

The controversy arose 
after a whistleblower from 
within the U.S. intelli¬ 
gence community brought 
a complaint relating to 
Trump’s conversation with 
Zelensky. 

Members of the House 
and Senate Intelligence 
committees were allowed 
to see the complaint on 
Wednesday, the day be¬ 
fore acting U.S. director 
of national intelligence, 
Joseph Maguire, testifies at 
a House intelligence panel 


hearing. 

Democratic lawmak¬ 
ers said the allegations 
were credible and deeply 
disturbing, while Repub¬ 
licans largely downplayed 
the complaint. Chuck 
Schumer, Hie U.S. Senate’s 
top Democrat, called for 


the complaint to be re¬ 
leased. 

“The public has a right 
to read the whistleblow¬ 
er’s complaint for them¬ 
selves. The contents of the 
complaint should be made 
public immediately,” he 
said in a statement, reuters

2 Amazon.com Inc. 
on Wednesday said 
actor Samuel L. 
Jackson and other celeb¬ 
rities will voice speech 
for the company's virtual 
assistant Alexa, while the 
voice aid will also be built 
into a new wearable line 
of earbuds, eyeglasses 
and a ring. The news, 
along with announce¬ 
ments of a new range 
of voice-controlled Echo 
speakers, a multilingual 
mode for Alexa and 
an additional privacy 
feature for deleting voice 


recordings regularly, 
underscores the invest¬ 
ment the world's largest 
online retailer is putting 
into voice-controlled 
computing, a new area of 
technology in which it is 
competing against Alpha¬ 
bet Inc.'s Google Assistant 
and Apple Inc.'s Siri. 
Amazon's celebrity voice 
feature will cost $0.99, 
Senior Vice President 
David Limp said at an 
event in Seattle. Jackson's 
is the only celebrity voice 
Amazon has disclosed so 

far. REUTERS 


3 IKEA reported annual 
sales above 40 billion 
euros ($44 billion) for 
the first time on Wednes¬ 
day as the Swedish 
furniture group's push into 
e-commerce produced 
another surge in online 
revenue. IKEA was slow to 
embrace online services 
but since 2017 the world's 
biggest furniture retailer 
has invested heavily to 
adapt to new shopping 
habits and competition 
from digital rivals such as 
Amazon and made.com. 

In the 12 months to the 


end of August, IKEA said 
it sold goods and services 
worth 413 billion euros, 
a 6 percent rise from 38.8 
billion last year including a 
43 percent jump in online 
revenue. The addition of 
new stores also boosted 
sales. Besides developing 
digital and other services 
such as furniture delivery 
and assembly, IKEA has set 
up stores in the heart of 
cities such as Paris which 
serve as showrooms, also 
helping to drive more on¬ 
line orders once shoppers 
return home, reuters 


The owner of Tinder 
and OkCupid is being 
sued by U.S. regula¬ 
tor for seeking to draw in 
potential subscribers with 
emails from fake users 
expressing interest in pair¬ 
ing up. The U.S. Federal 
Trade Commission on 
Wednesday alleged that 
Match Group Inc. know¬ 
ingly sent automated 
advertisements via Match, 
com with expressions of 
interest from accounts 
which it knew were 
likely fake. The emails in 
question, which did not 


include user pictures, told 
recipients that a particular 
profile had expressed 
interest in them and gave 
them a link to click to 
see details, leading to a 
subscription page. “The 
FTC has misrepresented 
internal emails and relied 
on cherry-picked data to 
make outrageous claims 
and we intend to vigor¬ 
ously defend ourselves,'' 
Match Group said. The 
FTC said some users had 
purchased subscriptions 
to see the details of the

E-cigarette maker 
facing scrutiny, bans 
as teen use surges. 

The chief executive of 
e-cigarette maker Juul 
stepped down on Wednes¬ 
day as merger talks be¬ 
tween its biggest investor 
Altria and Philip Morris 
collapsed in the face of 
a regulatory backlash 
against vaping that could 
reshape the industry. 

Juul Labs, in which to¬ 
bacco giant Altria Group 
owns a 35 percent stake, 
is facing intense scrutiny 
in its home market as 


teen use of e-cigarettes 
surges. The company, 
which faces a U.S. ban on 
some products, said on 
Wednesday that it would 
suspend all advertising in 
the country. 

Marlboro makers Philip 
Morris International and 
Altria, announcing the end 
of their $187 billion merg¬ 
er talks, said they would 
instead focus on the joint 
launch of tobacco-heating 
product iQOS in the United 
States. 

“It appears to us the 
talks fell apart over Juul,” 
Wells Fargo analyst Bon¬ 
nie Herzog wrote in a note, 


adding she was not sur¬ 
prised, given the litany of 
negative health headlines. 
Philip Morris and Altria did 
not mention the e-cigarette 
firm, however. 

Vaping devices such 
as Juul’s, which vaporize 
liquid containing nicotine, 
have borne the brunt of 
the regulatory crackdown 
globally. 

The iQOS, which heats 
but does not bum tobacco, 
is a rival non-smoldng tech¬ 
nology and, crucially, has 
been authorized by the U.S. 
Food and Drug Administra¬ 
tion (FDA). 

When the talks were 


Juul: CEO out, ads halted 
as merger talks with 
Philip Morris collapse 


announced last month, 
the potential for Juul and 
iQOS to dominate the big¬ 
gest vaping markets glob¬ 
ally was seen as central to 
the logic of a deal. It would 
have seen the tobacco com¬ 
panies reunite a decade 
after their split and created 
an industry heavyweight 
with a combined market 
value of $187 billion, tri¬ 
ple its closest rival British 
American Tobacco. 

However, some inves¬ 
tors were skeptical of the 
synergies the deal would 
generate and a steady rise 
in number of vaping-relat- 
ed deaths and illnesses re¬ 
ported in the United States 
may also have changed the 
companies’ thinking. 

“After much delibera¬ 
tion, the companies have 
agreed to focus on launch¬ 
ing iQOS in the U.S. as part 
of their mutual interest to 
achieve a smoke-free fu¬ 
ture,” Philip Morris CEO 


Andre Calantzopoulos said. 

The Trump administra¬ 
tion in the United States 
has announced plans to 
remove all flavored e-cig- 
arettes from store shelves 
due to the rising appeal 
among teenagers. 

28 % 

The share of high school 
students using e-ciga- 
rettes has doubled over 
the past two years, with 

27.5 percent report¬ 
ing they had tried an 
e-cigarette in the past 
month. 

The share of high 
school students using e- 
dgarettes has more than 
doubled over the past two 
years, with 27.5 percent 
reporting they had tried 
an e-cigarette in the past 


month, according to pre¬ 
liminary federal data re¬ 
leased this month. 

U.S. health officials are 
investigating an outbreak 
of hundreds of severe lung 
illnesses and nine deaths 
linked to vaping. 

In its announcements 
on Wednesday, Juul also 
said it would not lobby the 
administration over the 
proposed ban on flavored 
products. 

The FDA earlier this 
month warned the com¬ 
pany about marketing its 
products as safer than tra¬ 
ditional cigarettes and re¬ 
quested more documents 
and information within 30 
days. 

Federal prosecutors in 
California are conduct¬ 
ing a criminal probe into 
e-cigarette maker Juul, 
the Wall Street Journal 
reported on Tuesday, 
though the focus of the 
probe was unclear, reuters

Stolen gold coffin, 
illegally sold to Met 
Museum of Art, 
returned to Egypt 


Manhattan DA 
tracked down the 
tomb. 

The gilded coffin of a 
high-ranking ancient 
Egyptian priest, which 
had been buried, looted 
and illegally sold before 
going on public display at 
a New York museum, was 
returned on Wednesday 
to Egyptian authorities. 

The coffin of Ned- 
jemanlch, which dates 
back to the first century 
B.C., came to New York 
two years ago by way of 
a global art underground 
network before being sold 
to an unwitting Metropol¬ 
itan Museum of Art for $4 
million, authorities said. 

“Thus far our inves¬ 
tigation has determined 
that this coffin is just one 
of hundreds of antiquities 
stolen by the same multi¬ 
national trafficking ring,” 
Manhattan District Attor¬ 
ney Cyrus Vance said at a 
repatriation ceremony. 

“So, you may well see 
a few more significant sei¬ 


zures,” he added. 

Vance credited his 
office’s two-year-old An¬ 
tiquities Trafficking Unit 
with untangling a web 
of forged documents to 
track down the coffin’s 
true origin. 

The unit focuses on 
the high-powered New 
York art world, with its 
museums, galleries and 
auction houses, much 
the same as the Federal 
Bureau of Investigation’s 
Art Crime Team does on a 
national scale. 

The highly orna¬ 
mented coffin had been 
buried in Egypt for 2,000 
years before it was stolen 
from the country’s Minya 
region after the political 
upheaval of October 2011, 
authorities said. From 
there, it went on an un¬ 
derworld odyssey through 
the United Arab Emirates, 
Germany, France and 
New York, they said. 

After it had been on 
display for six months, 
agents for the District At¬ 
torney’s Office presented 
the Metropolitan Muse¬ 


um with evidence early 
this year that its owner¬ 
ship history documents, 
including one that sug¬ 
gested the coffin had been 
exported from Egypt in 
1971, were forgeries. 

The museum an¬ 
nounced last February 
that it had been defrauded 
when it bought the coffin 
and was cooperating with 
the district attorney’s in¬ 
vestigation. 

The coffin, which is 
inscribed with the name 
Nedjemankh, a priest 
of the ram-headed god 
Heryshef of Herakleopo- 
lis, will now go back to 
Egypt, where it will be 
put on display next year, 
Egyptian Minister of For¬ 
eign Affairs Sameh Has- 
san Shouloy said. 

“This is not only for 
Egyptians but this is for 
our common human heri¬ 
tage and our sense that 
we all share in the values 
and we all are one of the 
same international fam¬ 
ily,” Shouloy said at the 
repatriation ceremony.

Doctors Urge Knee Pain Sufferers 

“Don’t Get ANY Surgery Until You SeeThis...” 

After Years Of Intense Study, NYC Medical Clinic Finally Reveals It s Best 
“Treatment Formula " For Helping Knee Arthritis Sufferers... Especially 
When So Many Other Treatments Have Failed 


NEW YORK CITY - If you arc 
even remotely interested in 
discovering how die latest scientific 
discoveries can possibly help your 
knee pain... then this is going is he 
the most exciting information you 
ever read. 

Here Is why: Knee pain can not 
only he brutal... it's complex. In 
other words, it's not a simple, easy 
fix. 

But Pm sure you already know 
that. Or you wouldn’t be reading 
this. 

I hat's the had news. 

Now fur some good news... 

Over the years, NYC Pain MD 
has treated couni less knee pain 
sufferers. And in that time have been able to 
constantly improve. 

And wc have come up with a treatment 
formula that we have found works best and 
helps the most patients. 

This formula has reduced or even eliminated 
the pain in many. Some were scheduled for 
knee replacement surgery and fell good enough 
to cancel their surgery. 

It's uina/ing when patients who were once 
in excruciating pain... start feeling better. And 
start walking again And playing golf Or 
tennis. And finally getting their lives hack. 

Especially when they had gone to other 
doctors and tried so many other things. 

So many liad given up hope. 

Sound familiar? If it does... check this out... 
t he treatment formula 

While I can’t give you the entire treatment 
formula here (there is not enough space and 
WAY too complicated ) I can give you the 
basics And more important... I can tell you 
what it might be able to do for YOU. 

The first and most important part of the 
formula is: PATIENT SELECTION. 

This means, NYC Pain MD has a detailed 
screening process to tell who is most likely to 
be helped by their treatments... and w ho is not. 

If you qualify, you have the opportunity to 
move forward and experience the worldclass 
treatments that NYC Pain MD offers. 

If you do not, NYC Pain MI) will tell you 
what they think your best options are and help 



NYC Pain MD Treatment Formula* A protocol of advanced 
medical treatments that has already helped thousands. 

octor tor you 

If you qualify, NYC Pain MD offers some 
of the most advanced medical treatments 
available today all using the most advanced 
imaging technology including: 

• Vi.scosupplcmcntation (gel injections) 

•Platelet Rich Plasma (PRP) 

• Stem Cell Therapy (Lipogems) 

• Genicular Knee Block 

• And more. 

Once again, there is not enough space to go 
into detail about all these procedures... but here 
are some things you MUST KNOW.. 

Viscosupplcmentation is where a doctor 
introduces a gel-like medicine directly into the 
joint space. This helps to lubricate the joints 
often relieving some, most or even all of your 
pain Results can last for 6 months to several 
years. 

Many have had these treatments without 
good results. However. NYC Pain MD feels 
this is because doctors often do these “gel 
injections*’ without advanced imaging to guide 
them. Research shows they w ill often miss the 
joint. If the joint is missed... it is impossible for 
the treatment to work. 

NYC Pain MD lias spared no expense and 
used advanced imaging to guide the injections 
assuring the medicine gets into die joint. We 
frequently get results when this treatment was a 
failure done elsewhere. 

The second thing you must know is... our 
treatment plans are custom made for every 
patent. And we have all these treatments 


offered in the same place. Many times 
you will get the best results from 
multiple treatments. At NYC Pain 
MD your doctors will all he there and 
will all know each other and you and 
your case. They work together and 
give you the best treatments and care 
without you having to go anyw here 
else. 

The ability to select the right 
patients and then have the potential 
to give them any or all of these 
treatments... with all the necessary 
medical technology... under one 
roof... has allowed N}'C Pain MD to 
get better results than they thought 
possible. 

Here's What You Should Do Next 

If you suffer w ith knee pain... and any of 
this made sense to you... NYC Pam MD would 
like to offei you a No-cost screening. That 
screening is the first step in our “Treatment 
Formula." 

You will get to see a doctor and ask any 
questions you have. Your doctor will take the 
first steps to see if you qualify for treatments 
and give you recommendations. 

The best tiling is... you will finally get 
direction. You will know what’s going on and 
what is youi best course of action... step-bv- 
step. The treatments w ill he explained in detail 
and you will biculhc a big sigh of iclicf finally 
know ing what’s going on and what can or 
cannot be done. 

There is so much wc w ant to say to help 
you... but I'm out of space. Give us a cull at 
877-296-6310 and lake the first step. Tliut step 
is free w ithout obligation.

Yelp is celebrating its 
15th anniversary, and to 
commemorate it they 
are reflecting on some of 
the biggest tastes, words 
and trends that occurred 
within the past few years. 
Looking back at 200 mil¬ 
lion reviews and 40 mil¬ 
lion compliments, here’s 
what they found out 
about New York City. 

Yelp did some re¬ 
search, by comparing the 
language in reviews for 
specific cities to Yelp na¬ 
tionwide, to help deter¬ 
mine what each major 
city is looking for when 
it comes to dining. 

Metro spoke Tara 
Lewis, Yelp Trend Expert, 
about New York food 
trends and asked if Lew¬ 
is was shocked by any 
of the trends. She said, 
“Who would’ve guessed 
New Yorkers love brocco- 


tiple cities’ lists, including 
New York City’s. Metro 
was curious if Lewis was 
surprised by the rise in 
these items and Lewis told 
Metro, “Mexican cuisine 
has steadily risen over 
the last 15 years on Yelp. 
Similarly, Chinese has re¬ 
mained a top cuisine on 
Yelp, so it’s no surprise 
scallion pancalces are 
popular among Yelpers in 
these cities.”

Looking back at 200 mil¬ 
lion reviews and 40 mil¬ 
lion compliments, here's 
what Yelp found out 
about NYC. 

Besides localized data, 
Yelp looked at national 
data as well. Here’s what 
they discovered about 
2019. 

In 2019, foods that 
have seen the most sig¬ 
nificant spikes in popu¬ 
larity on Yelp were oat 
milk, CBD, the Impos¬ 
sible burger, A<;ai bowl, 
and street com. Current- 



“Who would’ve guessed 
New Yorkers love broccoli 
rabe more than pizza or 
bagels?” 

Tara Lewis, Yelp Trend Expert 


li rabe more than pizza 
or bagels?” 

Besides broccoli rabe 
being a favorite, here’s 
what New York City’s 
top searched-for words 
are: Shake Shack, broc¬ 
coli rabe, grilled octo¬ 
pus, scallion pancake, 
pork bun, fresh moz¬ 
zarella, ferry, Mexican, 
rice ball, prix-fixe, hero, 
pork dumpling and soba. 
Although these are a few 
of the top searched-for 
items, to look at more of 
the top searched terms, 
go to yelpl5.com. 

On a national scale, 
Metro noted that Mexican 
food and scallion pan¬ 
cakes seemed to top mul- 


ly, cuisine trends in cities 
across the United States 
are Filipino, Hawaiian, 
Hot Pot, Tex-Mex, and 
Vegan. 

With 2020 around 
the corner, Metro asked 
Lewis what we should 
expect to grow in popu¬ 
larity. She said, “The 
Impossible Burger was 
nearly nonexistent be¬ 
fore 2016 but is on track 
to be one of the biggest 
food searches of 2019 as 
it gets added to menus 
across the country. 

“With three months 
left in the year, we may 
see new flavors and ingre¬ 
dients pop up on menus 
and in Yelp reviews.”

Senate votes to end Trump's border 
emergency declaration - again 



Trump vetoed the first resolution to end the border emergency in March, reuters 


President’s first 
veto, in March, 
struck down a simi¬ 
lar measure that had 
cleared Congress. 

The U.S. Senate voted on 
Wednesday for a second 
time to end the national 
emergency on the south¬ 
ern border the president 
declared in February, 
a move Donald Trump 
would almost certainly 
veto if it reached his 
desk. 

Trump, with his very 
first veto, struck down 
a similar measure that 
had cleared both the 
House and Senate in 
March. Congress was un¬ 
able to muster the votes 
to override that veto. 

The Senate vote to ap¬ 
prove the resolution was 
54-41. 

Trump declared the 
emergency on the south¬ 
ern border to circum¬ 
vent Congress and take 
money already designat¬ 
ed for other programs to 


pay for his U.S.-Mexico 
border wall, which he 
promised to build dur¬ 
ing his 2016 campaign. 

Democratic lawmak¬ 
ers said the move was 
an unconstitutional 
power grab that under¬ 
cut Congress’ power of 
the purse, or the ability 
to tax and spend public 
money for the national 
government. 

Republicans insisted 
Trump had acted le¬ 
gally under a 1976 law 
known as the National 
Emergencies Act, under 


$1.37B 

This year, Trump sought 
$5-7 billion in wall funding. 
When Congress refused, 
a standoff ensued that 
triggered a partial gov¬ 
ernment shutdown that 
ended when the president 
agreed to $1.37 billion for 
border barriers — far less 
than he wanted. 

which previous presi¬ 
dents had declared doz¬ 
ens of emergencies. 


The issue landed in 
the courts and Trump 
won an early battle in 
July when the conserva¬ 
tive-majority Supreme 
Court voted 5-4 to block 
a ruling by a federal 
judge in California that 
barred the Republican 
president from redirect¬ 
ing $2.5 billion in funds. 

Congress has refused 
to meet Trump’s de¬ 
mands to fund a wall, 
although it has provided 
some funds for border 
fencing and other barri¬ 
ers. 

This year, Trump 
sought $5.7 billion in 
wall funding. When Con¬ 
gress refused, a standoff 
ensued that triggered a 
month-long partial gov¬ 
ernment shutdown that 
ended when the presi¬ 
dent agreed to $1.37 bil¬ 
lion for border barriers, 
far less than he wanted. 

Trump then declared 
the emergency, vowing 
to divert funds from oth¬ 
er accounts for the wall.

Transgender man loses court 
battle to be registered as father 


An individual who is bom 
female but later becomes 
male and gives birth to a 
child should be legally re¬ 
garded as a mother, Eng¬ 
land’s High Court ruled on 
Wednesday 

Freddy McConnell, a 
transgender man, wanted 
to be recognized as the 
father of his son, who was 
bom last year, on the of¬ 
ficial birth certificate but 
was told he would have 
to be registered as the 
mother. 

He sought legal action 
to quash that decision, 
saying it breached his and 
his son’s rights but in a 
landmark ruling, Andrew 
McFarlane, president of 
the High Court’s Family Di¬ 
vision, dismissed his claim 
and concluded that McCo¬ 
nnell was the mother. 

“It is now medically 
and legally possible for an 
individual, whose gender is 
recognized in law as male, 
to become pregnant and 
give birth to their child,” 
McFarlane said. 

“Whilst that person’s 
gender is ‘male,’ their pa- 



r jj r II lltlir IIVIAUti 

Freddy McConnell. 

rental status, which de¬ 
rives from their biological 
role in giving birth, is that 
of‘mother.’” 

McConnell, who was 
registered as female at 
birth, transitioned to live 
as male when aged 22, 
later undergoing a double 
mastectomy and testos¬ 
terone therapy. Official 
details, such as his pass¬ 
port and health records, 
were amended to show 
his gender as male, court 
papers said. 

In 2016, he suspended 
the testosterone treatment 
and became pregnant after 


undergoing intrauterine 
insemination fertility treat¬ 
ment using donor sperm, 
with the baby bom in Janu¬ 
ary 2018. 

McFarlane said the is¬ 
sue had been “most prop¬ 
erly and bravely” raised by 
McConnell and was an im¬ 
portant matter for public 
debate, but related more to 
public policy than law. 

“Down the centuries, no 
court has previously been 
required to determine the 
definition of ‘mother’ un¬ 
der English common law 
and, it seems, that there 
have been few comparable 
decisions made in other 
courts elsewhere in the 
Western World,” he said. 

Campaign group Stone¬ 
wall called the decision 
deeply disappointing and 
said the law desperately 
needed to be updated. 

“We believe this ruling 
is a missed opportunity to 
send a positive message 
and recognize all parents, 
including LGBT parents, 
for who they are,” said 
Laura Russell, its director 
of communications, reuters

Cut emissions to avert catastrophic 
sea-level rise: UN climate report 



Warming oceans 
under threat, could 
rise 3 feet by 2100. 

Scientists behind a land¬ 
mark study of the links 
between oceans, glaciers, 
ice caps and the climate 
delivered a stark warning 
to the world on Wednes¬ 
day: Slash emissions or 
watch cities vanish under 
rising seas, rivers run dry 
and marine life collapse. 

Days after millions of 
young people demanded 
an end to the fossil-fuel 
era in protests around the 
globe, a new report by a 
U.N.-baclced panel of ex¬ 
perts found that radical 
action may yet avert some 
of the worst possible out¬ 
comes of global warming. 

But the study was clear 
that allowing carbon 
emissions to continue ris¬ 
ing would upset the bal¬ 
ance of the geophysical 
systems governing oceans 
and the frozen regions of 


the Earth so profoundly 
that nobody would es¬ 
cape untouched. 

“We are in a race be¬ 
tween two factors, one is 
the capacity of humans 
and ecosystems to adapt, 
the other is the speed of 
impact of climate change. 
This report...indicates we 
may be losing in this race. 


We need to take immedi¬ 
ate and drastic action to 
cut emissions right now,” 
IPCC Chair Hoesung Lee 
said at the presentation 
of the report in Monaco. 

Finalized on Tuesday 
in a marathon 27-hour 
session of talks in Mo¬ 
naco between authors 
and representatives of 


governments, the report 
was the culmination of 
two years’ efforts by the 
U.N.-baclced Intergovern¬ 
mental Panel on Climate 
Change (IPCC). 

Compiled by more 
than 100 authors who 
crunched 7,000 academic 
papers, the study docu¬ 
ments the implications 


of warming oceans, fast¬ 
melting ice sheets in 
Greenland and Antarctica 
and shrinking glaciers for 
more than 1.3 billion peo¬ 
ple living in low-lying or 
high-mountain regions. 

The report projects 
that sea levels could rise 
by one meter (3.3 feet) by 
2100 — 10 times the rate 
in the 20th century — if 
emissions keep climbing. 
The rise could exceed five 
meters by 2300. 

In the Himalayas, gla¬ 
ciers feeding 10 rivers, 
including the Ganges and 
Yangtze, could shrink 
dramatically if emissions 
do not fall, hitting water 
supplies across a swathe 
of Asia. 

Thawing permafrost 
in places like Alaska and 
Siberia could release vast 
quantities of greenhouse 
gases, potentially un¬ 
leashing feedback loops 
driving faster warming. 

The IPCC galvanized 
global concern over cli¬ 


mate change in October 
when it published a re¬ 
port that showed the 
world would need to 

“We are in 
a race be¬ 
tween two 
factors, the 
capacity of 
humans to 
adapt, and 
the speed 
of impact 
of climate 
change.” 

Hoesung Lee, 

IPCC chair 

halve emissions over the 
next decade to stand a 
chance of meeting the 
temperature goals in the 
2015 Paris Agreement.

Death toll rises to 37 in 
Pakistan earthquake: Officials 



REUTERS 


“The situation is slowly 
returning to normal, the 
level of panic is now less 
among the people.” 

Sardar Gulfaraz Khan, 
police deputy inspector general 


The death toll from an 
earthquake that struck Pak¬ 
istani Kashmir jumped to 
37, officials said on Wednes¬ 
day, as families mourned 
relatives and rescue teams 
sent supplies to the area. 

Officials said the ex¬ 
tent of the casualties, who 
included young children, 
emerged a day after the 
5.8 magnitude earthquake 
struck as authorities were 
able to reach towns and 
villages around the region 
outside main population 
centres. 

“We had dispatched sur¬ 
vey teams in the entire area 
affected by the earthquake 
to collect details of the vic¬ 
tims,” Muhammad Tayyab, 
divisional commissioner 
for Mirpur, one of the worst 
affected areas, told Reuters, 
adding that around 500 
people had been injured. 

Tuesday’s earthquake 
leveled homes and shops 
and split open roads in an 
area between the towns of 
Jhelum and Mirpur to the 
north, part of which is in 
Pakistan’s portion of the dis¬ 


puted territory of Kashmir. 

“The situation is slowly 
returning to normal, the 
level of panic is now less 
among the people, al¬ 
though an aftershock was 
felt at night,” said Sardar 
Gulfaraz Khan, a police dep¬ 


uty inspector general. 

Pakistan’s Prime Minis¬ 
ter Imran Khan, in a tweet, 
offered condolences to fam¬ 
ilies of the victims and said 
he had directed the govern¬ 
ment to quickly offer relief 
and assess damage, reuters

Netanyahu tapped by 
Israel’s president to 
form new government 



Israeli President Reuven Rivlin and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu attend a nomination ceremony at the President's 
residency in Jerusalem, Sept. 25,2019. reuters 


“It became dear that neither 
Netanyahu nor Gantz had 
the 61 seats necessary to 
form a government.” 

President Reuven Rivlin 


Israeli presidents 
pick the PM after 
elections; last week’s 
was a deadlock. 

Israel’s president tasked 
Prime Minister Benjamin 
Netanyahu on Wednesday 
with assembling a new gov¬ 
ernment after power-shar¬ 
ing talks with his strongest 
rival, Benny Gantz, failed 
following an inconclusive 
election. 

But right-wing Likud 
party chief Netanyahu, fac¬ 
ing a looming indictment 
on corruption allegations 
he denies, still has no dear 
path to a fifth term after 
emerging from the Sept 17 
ballot, the second this year, 
short of a parliamentary 
majority. 

Accepting the mandate 
from President Reuven Riv¬ 
lin at a televised ceremony, 
a politically weakened Ne¬ 


tanyahu said his chances 
of success were only mar¬ 
ginally higher than those 
of Gantz, a former general 
who heads the Blue and 
White party. 

In his remarks, Netan¬ 
yahu seemed to envision a 
scenario in which he and 
Gantz would be able to take 
another stab at power-shar¬ 
ing once it became dear 
there was no way out of the 
current deadlock, save for 
a third election that few in 
Israel wanted. 

“If I don’t succeed, I will 
return the mandate to you 
and with the help of God 
and Israel’s dtizens and 
yourself, Mr. President, we 
will establish a broad na¬ 
tional unity government 
down the line,” he said. 

Netanyahu, 69 and Isra¬ 
el’s longest-serving leader, 
will have 28 days to form a 
coalition and can ask Rivlin 
for a two-weelc extension 


if necessary. Netanyahu’s 
failure to clinch victory in 
a ballot in April led to last 
week’s election. 

Rivlin, in his remarks, 
pointedly noted that he 
is under no obligation to 
grant his prime minister- 
designate that two-weelc 
extension to establish a 
governing coalition. 

Nor did he commit to 
turning to Gantz if Netan¬ 
yahu failed to break the 
current deadlock. Under 
law, Rivlin can assign the 
coalition-building task to 
any member of parliament 
he deems likely to succeed, 
or he can ask the legisla¬ 
ture to pick someone. 

With final results an¬ 
nounced on Wednesday, 
Iilcud has the pledged 
support of 55 legislators 
in the 120-member parlia¬ 
ment, against 54 for Blue 
and White. The two parties 
failed to reach a coalition 


deal in talks launched on 
Tuesday. 

“It became clear that 
neither Netanyahu nor 
Gantz had the 61 seats 
necessary to form a govern¬ 
ment,” Rivlin said at the 
ceremony. 

“Netanyahu’s ability to 
assemble an administra¬ 


tion is higher at the mo¬ 
ment,” the president said, 
noting that 10 Arab legisla¬ 
tors in Gantz’s support bloc 
of 54, who recommended 
he nominate the ex-gener- 
al, did not commit to join¬ 
ing a government. 

Rivlin had until next 
Wednesday to announce 


his choice, but the Iilcud- 
Blue and White unity talks 
showed no sign of progress. 

A deal in which Netan¬ 
yahu and Gantz would take 
turns as prime minister 
was widely mooted. 

In his campaign, Gantz 
pledged not serve in a gov¬ 
ernment with Netanyahu, 
citing the Israeli leader’s 
legal troubles. 

Next month, Israel’s 
attorney-general will hold a 
pre-trial hearing on his an¬ 
nounced intention to indict 
the Israeli leader on fraud 
and bribery charges in 
three corruption cases, reuters

First commercial 
flights from Beijing’s 
new $63 billion 
airport take off 


The first commercial 
flights from Beijing’s new 
Daxing International air¬ 
port took off on Wednes¬ 
day — an airport that 
cost $63 billion to build, 
is roughly the size of 100 
football fields and is ex¬ 
pected to become one of 
the world’s busiest. 

Shaped like a phoe¬ 
nix — though to some 
observers it is more rem¬ 
iniscent of a starfish — 
the airport was designed 
by famed Iraqi-born ar¬ 
chitect Zaha Hadid. It 
boasts four runways and 
is expected to handle up 
to 72 million passengers 
a year by 2025, eventual¬ 
ly reaching 100 million. 

It was hailed as “a new 
powerful source of na¬ 
tional development” at 


a ceremony overseen by 
President Xi Jinping, just 
days ahead of the 70th an¬ 
niversary of the founding 
of the People’s Republic 
of China. 

2022 

China is forecast to over¬ 
take the United States as 
the world’s largest avia¬ 
tion market by 2022. 

A China Southern Air¬ 
lines Airbus A380 flight to 
Guangzhou in the coun¬ 
try’s south was the first to 
fly out. 

China is forecast to 
overtake the United States 
as the world’s largest 
aviation market by 2022. 


Daxing, located south 
of Beijing, will help ease 
pressure on Capital Inter¬ 
national Airport in the 
city’s northeast, where 
capacity constraints often 
cause flight delays. 

The new airport is, 
however, about 29 miles 
away from central Bei¬ 
jing, almost twice the dis¬ 
tance of Capital airport. 
An express train from 
Daxing will take about 
20 minutes to reach the 
south of Beijing. 

Daxing will also ac¬ 
commodate passengers 
from the neighboring ar¬ 
eas of Hebei and Tianjin, 
linked by a sprawling net¬ 
work of trains, subways 
and public buses. 

China Southern Air¬ 
lines and China Eastern 



Airlines will be the main 
domestic carriers at Dax¬ 
ing. About 50 foreign air¬ 
lines, including British 
Airways and Finnair, plan 
to move all or part of their 


operations in the next 
few quarters. 

The relocation of all 
airlines is to due to be 
completed by the Winter 
2021. 


With the opening of 
Daxing, Beijing Nanyuan 
Airport, China’s oldest 
airport, will cease op¬ 
erations from Thursday.

READER WRITE-INS: 


INFLATABLE POOL SEASON IS 
OVER! 

It's time to drain the inflatable 
pools, clean out the dead leaves 
and debris and put them away 
till next summer. They are a 
breeding ground for West Nile 
virus and other mosquito-related 
diseases. When I was walking in 
my neighborhood, I saw a pool 
filled with leaves and polluted 
water. Surely no one is going 
to take a dip in there. So take 
down the pool and put up the 
Halloween decorations. 

I'd rather a Halloween treat than 
a West Nile/EEE fright.

Marchant Davis talks 
breakout film role. 



MOLLY GIVEN 

Molly.Given@metro.us 


In 2006 seven members 
of a so-called “bizarre 
cult” were arrested and 
charged with terrorism- 
related offenses after the 
FBI launched a sting oper¬ 
ation into the group’s sup¬ 
posed criminal activity. 
What was later discovered 
about the now-deemed 
“Liberty City Seven” was 
that the group, in reality, 
had no plans of revolu¬ 
tion, no weapons and no 
communication with any 
terrorist organizations 
whatsoever. 

This story captivated 
director Chris Morris, and 
the U.K. native turned the 
harrowingly real story 
into a truthful satirical 
dark comedy that show¬ 
cases just how easy it is to 
create terror out of stig¬ 
matized misconceptions. 
“The Day Shall Come” 
follows the story of a 
similar “radical” group 
and their journey to save 
their home. Although the 
film touches on very real 
subjects, the overall in¬ 
nate comedic undertones 
help shape the feature to 
be hilariously interesting 
but also severely eye¬ 
opening. 

Metro sat down with 


‘The Day Shall Come’: Satirical 
comedy with ‘a lot of truth’ 



Marchant Davis plays Moses in "The Day Shall Come." all photos ifc films 


Marchant Davis, who 
plays the charismatic 
yet desperately naive 
leader of the FBI’s targeted 
“radical” group, and the 
breakout star gave the 
scoop on how it was work¬ 
ing on the film and what 
he hopes audiences take 
away from it. 

This is your first film role 
after acting on Broadway. 
How was making the 
transition from the stage 
to the screen? 

It’s a lot, especially when 
you have so much to do. 
Up on stage, you have a 
performance that you 
have to repeat eight 
times a week, where with 
film you only get to do it 
once. I think the level of 
confidence you have in 
order to do certain things 


is vastly different — or it 
was for me, at least. 

How else did you prepare 
for your role? 

There was a book I read 
called “How White Folks 
Got So Rich: The Untold 
Story of American White 
Supremacy,” which was 
given to me by the direc¬ 
tor. It’s actually a really 
interesting book and I 
encourage everyone to 
read it. But I also watched 
documentaries. I just 
wanted to see a little bit 
inside this world because 
there is a lot there and 
there are a lot of things I 
simply didn’t know. It’s 
crazy how [in the world] 
today you’re really guilty 
until proven innocent. 

How was it working with 


Chris 
Morris? 

I've heard 
he has an 
interesting 
directing 
style where 
things are always 
changing. 

It was really great. Chris 
is one of those people 
who does an enormous 
amount of research 
before we even start. On 
set, there were times 
where we would be doing 
a reading and then we 
would go to lunch, and 
one day I remember spe¬ 
cifically that Chris came 
up and handed me a 
script. I asked, “Is this for 
tomorrow?” But he says, 
“No, for later on today.” 
The scene he handed me 
was the scene we had just 


done already, but Chris 
re-wrote it during lunch. 
He is one of those direc¬ 
tors who was constantly 
looking to make it better. 
He just wanted to elevate 
the story in any way he 
could. There would be 
times where we would 
be on set and he would 
just throw out whatever 
he was thinking. It was 
really exciting to work 
with someone so wildly 
imaginative and 
Chris is also 
“xtremely 
truthful 
and re¬ 
spect¬ 
ful of 
the 
peo¬ 
ple he 
puts 
upon 
screen. 

This is a 
satirical com¬ 
edy that focuses 
more on serious subjects. 
What do you think the 
comedic aspect brings 
to tackling these social 
issues? 

Well, you’ve got to laugh 
in life. One of the things 
Chris says beautifully 
about his work is that it’s 
funny until it isn’t. It’s 
funny until the carpet is 
pulled out from under¬ 
neath the character and 
the audience in terms of 
what we’re watching. I 
think that’s a great way 
to put it. 


There are a few points in 
the movie that allude to 
your character, Moses, as 
having some sort of men¬ 
tal illness, but it's never 
quite confirmed. What 
was your take on that? 

I think what motivates 
him in this film is his love 
for his family. He’s trying 
to get money to get the 
loans he needs to save his 
family. So in terms of that 
idea of mental illness, I 
don’t think there’s any 
mental illness there, or 
I don’t believe he thinks 
there is, at least. I think 
he’s a visionary and 
sometimes his visions 
might not always be clear, 
but at the end of the day, 
he’s the ultimate optimist. 
I think he’s trying to win 
and succeed and at mo¬ 
ments, he is a little flawed 
in his choices to succeed. 

Overall what do you hope 
audiences take away 
from the film after watch¬ 
ing it? 

My hope is that people 
take away the fact that it 
might be harder to catch 
a terrorist than it is to 
create your own. I hope 
people examine their 
ideas and thoughts on 
terrorism and people of 
color in this country. It is 
a comedy, but there is a 
lot of truth — especially 
for me, because I live it 
every day.

Metro’s guide to the 57th 
New York Film Festival 


year’s festival will 
[ from Sen. 27 to 



PAT KING 

patrick.king@metro.us 


Starting this Friday, 
the New York Film 
Festival will be taking 
over Lincoln Center for 
two full weeks with 
exclusive premieres of 
some of the fall’s most 
anticipated releases. 
The festival, in its 
57th year, will span 
five different theaters, 
with retrospectives and 
special talks from some 
of the biggest names in 
film including Martin 
Scorsese, Bong Joon Ho, 
and Pedro Almodovar. 
With so many special 
screenings, we thought 
we would give our 
picks for some of the 
“must-see” films at this 
year’s festival. 

“THE IRISHMAN” 

Kicking off the festival 
on Friday is possibly 
the most anticipated 
film at the festival 
— or of the year, for 
that matter. “The 


Irishman” is the latest 
mobster epic from 
legendary film direc¬ 
tor Martin Scorsese. 
The film stars such 
high-pedigree Scorsese 
alumni with Robert De 
Niro, A1 Pacino, Harvey 
Keitel, and Joe Pesci 
as well as newcomers 
like Jesse Plemmons, 
Anna Paquin, and Ray 
Romano. The story 
follows a hardened 
hitman, Frank “The 
Irishman” Sheeran, 
played by De Niro, and 
his involvement with 
the disappearance of 
the notorious teamster, 
Jimmy Hoffa, played 
by Pacino. The film 
has been in the news 
for both it’s incredibly 
long-running length — 
three-and-a-half hours! 
— and the bidding 
frenzy it has created 
between its exclusive 
streaming rights with 
Netflix and theaters 
who would like the 
film to screen. For 
what it’s worth, seeing 
a new Scorsese film on 
the big screen is some¬ 
thing you should never 
pass up. 

“MARRIAGE STORY” 


Noah Baumbach has 
been releasing films 
that tackle the prob¬ 
lems that come with 
“adulthood” in the 
most searing, brutally 
honest, and hilarious 
ways possible. His new¬ 
est feature, “Marriage 
Story,” stars Scarlett 
Johansson and Adam 
Driver as a soon-to-be- 
divorced couple, Nicole 
and Charlie, as they 
feud over the custody 
of their child. Laura 
Dern plays Nicole’s di¬ 
vorce lawyer and Alan 
Alda and Ray Liotta 
play Charlie’s counsel. 
The follow-up to Baum- 
bach’s masterful “The 
Meyerowitz Stories 
(New and Selected),” ex¬ 
pect this film to pack 
equal amounts gut- 
punches and laughs. 

“MOTHERLESS 

BROOKLYN” 

Actor Edward Norton 
has been pretty quiet 
over the past few years. 
But, that may be be¬ 
cause he has been hard 
at work on perhaps his 
most ambitious project 
to date. His new film, 
“Motherless Brook¬ 
lyn,” which he wrote. 


directed, produced and 
stars in, is a murky 
noir set in the 1950s 
with Norton playing a 
P.I with Tourette’s syn¬ 
drome who is trying 
to get to the bottom of 
the suspicious death of 
his mentor in the field. 
The film is based on 
the novel by Jonathan 
Lethem and also stars 
Bruce Willis, Gugu 
Mbatha-Raw, Bobby 
Cannavale, Cherry 
Jones, Alec Baldwin, 
and Willem Dafoe. If 
anything, seeing if Nor¬ 
ton delivers on such an 
auteur and immersive 
undertaking will be 
worth checking out. 

“PAIN AND GLORY” 

Whenever Pedro 
Almodovar releases 
a film, it is generally 
cause for celebration. 
His newest film, “Pain 
and Glory,” sees the 
singular filmmaker 
partnering back up 
with his frequent 
collaborators Antonio 
Banderas and Pe¬ 
nelope Cruz. The story 
revolves around an old 
filmmaker named Sal¬ 
vador Mallo, played by 
Banderas, who is losing

his influence. 
“PARASITE” 

South Korean film¬ 
maker Bong Joon Ho is 
one of the greatest liv¬ 
ing satirists taking aim 
at the rigid economic 
divide around the 
world. His newest film, 
“Parasite,” has been 
wowing critics and pil¬ 
ing up awards for his 
masterful storytelling. 
Metro’s James Case had 
the chance to see Joon 
Ho’s newest master¬ 


piece, which won the 
Palme d’Or at this 
year’s Cannes Film Fes¬ 
tival, going in length 
on the hypnotic nature 
of the film, saying in 
his review, “Joon-ho’s 
narrative deeply knows 
the cumulative effect 
that our daily condi¬ 
tions have on how we 
make our decisions. 
Each character’s 
decisions are rent¬ 
able and understand¬ 
able, whether it’s an 


outburst of violence or 
the effects of a series 
of slights and insults. 
The notion of free will 
feels minimized when 
seeing that sometimes 
there really is only one 
choice to be made. See¬ 
ing ‘Parasite’ should be 
one of those.” This one 
is not to be missed.

This wall commemorates murdered women in Turkey 




Protest against 
domestic abuse 

A wall of women's shoes has recently 
appeared in Istanbul, Turkey. The me¬ 
morial, called "Untitled" and created 
by Turkish artist Vahit Tuna, is set to 
commemorate the hundreds of women 
killed by their partners in domestic 
violence cases last year. The open-air 
art installation that will be on display 
for six months seeks to impact passers- 
by and raise awareness about the issue.

Cheaper alternatives to 
popular vacation spots 



NerdWalletisa 
personal finance website. 


The golden rule of afford¬ 
able travel is to visit plac¬ 
es when or where it isn’t 
busy. Even you don’t have 
a lot of flexibility on the 
“when,” you can always 
tweak the “where” — and 
even a small location 
change has the potential 
to save you big. 

The travel website Tri- 
pAdvisor recently looked 
at the most popular 
Summer 2019 vacation 
spots in the United States 
and found big savings 
on hotels at affordable 
alternative destinations. 
Here are some of their 
recommendations. 


Kissimmee instead of 
Orlando 

It’s not a huge surprise 
that Orlando, Florida, 
was the most popular 
summer destination in 
the United States this 
year. After all, Orlando 
is home to some of the 
country’s most popular 
theme parks, which are 
unveiling new elements 
this year that are likely 
to produce even larger 
crowds than usual. 
Disney World is slated to 
open a highly anticipated 
new Star Wars-themed 
land in late August, and 
Universal Studios re¬ 
cently added a new roller 
coaster called “Hagrid’s 
Magical Creatures 
Motorbike Adventure” to 
the Wizarding World of 
Hany Potter. 

To save money on 
your Orlando vaca¬ 
tion, consider staying 
in nearby Kissimmee, 
Florida. Kissimmee 
is less than 20 miles 


away from Disney and 
Universal, meaning you 
can have all of the fun 
without the expensive 
hotel rates. According to 
TripAdvisor, the average 
summer nightly hotel 
rate in Kissimmee is $137, 
which is 37 percent less 
than the $216 average 
nightly rate in Orlando. 
Even when you factor in 
the cost of a rental car, 
staying in Kissimmee will 
likely still leave you with 
money left over for some 
theme park funnel cake. 

Reno instead of Las Vegas 

Las Vegas may have all 
the flashing lights of the 
Strip, but the northern 
alternative of Reno, 
Nevada, still has plenty of 
gambling and hotel pool 
parties to satisfy many 
travelers’ idea of letting 
loose for vacation. Reno is 
also close to Lake Tahoe, 
which offers incredible 
views, hiking and water 
activities during the sum¬ 



mer. 

Save an average of 14 
percent per night by go¬ 
ing to Reno instead of Las 
Vegas, with an average 
nightly hotel rate of $144 
in Reno, according to 
TripAdvisor. 

Kill Devil Hills instead of 
Myrtle Beach 

Myrtle Beach, South 
Carolina, is a popular 
family-friendly beach 
vacation town, but if all 
you and the kids need for 
a quiet getaway is waves, 
sand and a cute little 
beach house, you might 
want to look into a vaca¬ 
tion in North Carolina’s 


Outer Banks. Kill Devil 
Hills offers several miles 
of sandy coastline that’s 
great for lounging on the 
sand, kayaking, fishing, 
crabbing or just going for 
a bike ride. There’s also a 
memorial to the Wright 
Brothers’ first flight. 

A hotel room in Kill Devil 
Hills costs an average of 
$200 per night, compared 
to the $250 you would 
pay in Myrtle Beach, ac¬ 
cording to TripAdvisor. 

Oahu instead of Maui 

There are more airplane 
seats to Hawaii now 
that Southwest has 
started flying to the Aloha 


State. Maui is sometimes 
called the “playground of 
the wealthy” because of 
its upscale and expensive 
resorts. To make your 
vacation to this tropical 
paradise a little more 
affordable, stay on the 
island of Oahu instead, 
which caters to tourists of 
all budgets. 

By choosing Oahu over 
Maui, TripAdvisor found 
that you’d save an average 
of 38 percent. Hotels in 
Maui average $533 per 
night, while hotels in 
Oahu only average $328 
per night, according to 
their research. MEGHAN

The Islanders cut 12 players on Wednesday afternoon, gettyimages 

Isles make more cuts; 
what will forward 
lines look like? 


Numerous wing¬ 
ers are battling for 
a final spot on the 
NHL roster. 



JOE PANTORNO 

joseph.pantorno@metro.us 


With the start of the 2019- 
20 NHL season a little 
more than a week away, 
the New York Islanders’ 
roster is taking shape af¬ 
ter the team announced 
it sent 12 more players to 
theAHL. 

Granted, it’s not that 
hard to forecast a team’s 
forward lines when the 
roster remains largely un¬ 
changed. 

The Islanders are re¬ 
turning 10 of their 11 full¬ 
time forwards from last 
year — the lone exception 
being Valtteri Filppula, 
who opted to sign with 
the Detroit Red Wings in 
free agency. 

General manager Lou 
Lamoriello signed veteran 
center Derick Brassard to 
fill the void on the third 
line, but there’s still one 
little lineup matter to take 
care of before Oct. 4. 

Who gets the 12th for¬ 
ward spot? 

That last man in will 
likely take over as the 
second or third-line left¬ 
winger. 

Last year saw a rota¬ 
tion of players fill the role 
that would have normally 
belonged to Andrew Ladd. 
But injuries have side¬ 
lined the veteran, includ¬ 
ing a knee issue that will 
see him start this season 
on injured reserve. 

It forced head coach 
Bany Trotz to give time 


to the likes of Tom 
Kuhnhackl, Michael Dal 
Colle, Josh Ho-Sang, and 
Ross Johnston. 

All four of those play¬ 
ers are back in the mix 
and so are the likes of Oli¬ 
ver Wahlstrom and Tan¬ 
ner Fritz. 

On Wednesday, the 
Islanders assigned Mason 
Jobst, Kieffer Bellows, and 
Otto Koivula to the team’s 
minor-league affiliate in 
Bridgeport. 

Kuhnhackl provides 
the most veteran option 
for Trotz. The 27-year-old 
won two Stanley Cups 
with the Pittsburgh Pen¬ 
guins but doesn’t provide 
much of an offensive 
boost for an Islanders 
team that had problems 
finding the back of the net 
last season. 

Dal Colle, who at 23 
years old carved out 28 
games on the lower lines 
last year, had just three 
goals and four assists. 
However, he showed an 
affinity to play well in 
Trotz’s defense-first sys¬ 
tem. 

It creates an advantage 
for him, but how patient 
will the Islanders be if 
they don’t see any offen¬ 
sive threat? 

That’s why so many 
eyes have been on Ho- 
Sang, the enigmatic for¬ 
ward who is likely getting 
his final chance to make 
the Islanders this sum¬ 
mer. 

There’s no disputing 
the 23-year-old’s promise. 
He can make plays almost 


near the same level as 
Mathew Barzal when he’s 
on his day. The problem is 
those days are proving to 
be few and far between 
while his all-around game 
has been questioned. 

The latest example 
came on Tuesday night 
following the Islanders’ 
exhibition loss to the 
Rangers. 

“I’m really proud of 
myself. Defense is ... it’s 
not something I think 
about,” Ho-Sang said (h/t 
NHLcom’s Brian Comp¬ 
ton). “I don’t go to bed 
thinking about defense, 
but it’s something that’s 
really important to the 
coaches here, and I value 
the importance to them. 
I’ve grown to see how it 
leads to success.” 

Ho-Sang showed an 
ability to play that style 
last year in his abbreviat¬ 
ed stint in the NHL. In his 
10 games with the Island¬ 
ers, they won nine games. 

If the Islanders are 
committed to giving Ho- 
Sang one more chance, 
he’s the last man in. 

Johnston is a bruiser 
who can add toughness 
while Tanner Fritz has 
experience as a rotational 
forward. 

Wahlstrom will likely 
need a bit more time in 
the AHL, though his pres¬ 
ence this close to the start 
of the season suggests 
that he isn’t far away from 
getting NHL playing time. 

Here is how the open¬ 
ing-night forward lines 
might look: 


ANDERS LEE - MATHEW BARZAL - JORDAN EBERLE 
ANTHONY BEAUVILLIER - BROCK NELSON - JOSH BAILEY 
JOSH HO-SANG - DERICK BRASSARD - LEO KOMAROV 
MAH MARTIN - CASEY CIZIKAS - CAL CLUTTERBUCK

KRANEPOOL MUST 
BE NEXT MET 
NUMBER RETIRED 


PANTORNO’S PERCH 


9 


JOE 
PANTORNO 

(§JoePantomo 


The New York Mets an¬ 
nounced Tuesday that 
they will retire the No. 
36 jersey of pitcher Jerry 
Koosman during the 2020 
season. 

It’s a rare honor be¬ 
stowed on the southpaw 
as he will join Casey Sten¬ 
gel, Gil Hodges, Tom Seav- 
er and Mike Piazza as the 
only Mets in franchise his¬ 
tory to have their jersey 
numbers retired. 

For a younger genera¬ 
tion that never saw Koos¬ 
man pitch, he was the No. 
2 man behind the Hall of 
Famer Seaver — and one 
of the best pitchers the 
organization has ever had. 

He ranks third in fran¬ 
chise history in wins (140) 
and strikeouts (1,799), as 
well as sixth in ERA (3.09). 

Koosman also ranks 
second in innings pitched 
(2,544.2), games started 
(346), complete games 
(108), and shutouts (26) 
over 12 seasons with the 
club. 

The 76-year-old will 
best be remembered for 
his performance in the 
clinching Game 5 of the 
1969 World Series against 
the Baltimore Orioles 
when he pitched a com¬ 
plete game in which he 
allowed three runs on five 
hits in 5-3 victory. 

Koosman was 2-0 in 
that Fall Classic, posting 
a 2.04 ERA in 17.2 innings 


pitched. He was 4-0 in his 
postseason career with 
the Mets, winning an ad¬ 
ditional game in the 1973 
NLCS against the Cincin¬ 
nati Reds before a Game 5 
gem against the Oakland 
Athletics in the World Se¬ 
ries. 

The decision by the 
Mets to retire Koosman’s 
number came with a 
promise from team COO 
Jeff Wilpon that he will 
look into easing up on 
their number retirement 
policy — potentially open¬ 
ing the door for the likes 
of Keith Hernandez, Gary 
Carter, and David Wright 
to see their digits adorned 
atop Citi Field. 

In time, they absolute¬ 
ly deserve that honor. 

But not before Ed 
Kranepool and his No. 7 
jersey. 

The original Mr. Met, 
Kranepool made his MLB 
debut with the club as a 
17-year-old and proceeded 
to spend all 17 years of his 
career with the organiza¬ 
tion. 

By no means do his 
numbers make him a star, 
considering he played a 
franchise-record 1,853 
games with the team. He 
ranks third in hits (1,418), 
third in total bases (2,047), 
fourth in doubles (225), 
fifth in RBI (614), and 
ninth in runs scored (536). 

But Kranepool 

was THE original Met. 

And it’s something 
that the organization 
can’t really boast too of¬ 
ten. 

For example, the cross¬ 
town Yankees have 15 
players in franchise his¬ 


tory that have appeared in 
more games with the club 
than Kranepool as a Met. 
Eight of them are Hall of 
Famers while Derek Jeter 
will soon be the ninth. 

The Mets simply don’t 
have that. 

Wright’s career was 
ransacked by injuries or 
he would have been the 
guy. 

Jose Reyes was traded 
away. 

Seaver was traded 
away. 

Doc Gooden and Dar¬ 
ryl Strawberry’s careers 
were derailed by drugs. 

Carter and Keith Her¬ 
nandez were acquired by 
the Mets via trade, played 
integral roles as veter¬ 
ans in winning the 1986 
World Series, and still 
didn’t finish their careers 
with the club. 

Ed Kranepool came up 
a Met, stayed a Met, won 
as a Met, lost as a Met, and 
retired as a Met. 

He was there for four 
100-plus-loss seasons in 
five years from 1963-1967. 

He socked a three-run 
home run in Game 3 of 
the 1969 World Series. He 
played in the 1973 World 
Series and played under 
six managers. 

He was one of the most 
recognizable and beloved 
faces of an organization 
that has little to celebrate 
in their 57 years of exis¬ 
tence. 

He’s a Met for life. And 
you don’t see that too of¬ 
ten. 

Before any other num¬ 
ber receives the royal 
treatment in Queens, Ed 
Kranepool’s is the next up.
