OnNYturf and New Yorker | a href=http://www.onnyturf.com/articles/read.php?article_id=198>Will from OnNYTurf writes: "A State Judge ruled Monday that the Empire State Development Corporation (ESDC), which is reviewing Ratner's development plan for the Atlantic Yards area in Prospect Heights, must dismiss its retained attorney David Paget. Until working for ESDC Paget was Ratner's attorney, and was actually working on Ratner's proposal to the ESDC. [...] The decision to boot Paget from ESDC was one half of the judge's ruling in a case brought by Develop Don't Destroy Brooklyn and a coalition of Brooklyn community groups and Brooklyn lawmakers. In the other half the judge ruled in Ratner's favor to allow demolition of six buildings owned by Ratner." [Read More]
Sarah Paterson | Men at foot parties can be divided into six overlapping categories: massagers, toe suckers, ticklers, tramplees, foot job guys and sissy boys/voyeurists. Fetishes invariably take on a different coloring when they are transformed into paid services. Everything looks a bit more bizarre under the bordello-red lighting of a dungeon, even a fetish as “tame” as foot worship. more... 1 Comments

Amanda Davis | I am what most people would term elderly. I am neither inexperienced nor stupid – and I write as a woman not a man – and I am financially independent. I enjoy sex and what goes with it, sexual relations. As an “older woman,” I’ll try to tell you what I like to get and give.

It does look like a blizzard and I'm quite sure there will be a tremendous amount of snowfall. But a thought came to mind this time. It had to do with the homeless population.

Jeffrey Blankfort | McKinney, from Atlanta, Georgia, is an African-American warrior for justice and peace and an enemy of government hypocrisy. The other, Nancy Pelosi, is the white, privileged congresswoman from San Francisco, a consummate politician who, because of her prodigious fundraising abilities, was promoted by the party to run for the seat of the late Sala Burton in 1986 and is now the House Minority leader in Congress, thanks to her loyal service to the party and to the party line. ... Meanwhile, McKinney made her film debut this week in “American Blackout,” an independent film that premiered at the prestigious Sundance Film Festival in Park City, Utah, and which explores the historic and disempowerment of the Black vote through her eyes and political career. more... 0 Comments
Erin Thompson | In January 2004, the New York AIDS Coalition released a report stating that 63 percent of public schools violated the mandated six lessons per year of HIV/AIDS training. In early 2005, Youth Organizers United, a youth-run advocacy group focused on reproductive health and HIV/AIDS education, completed a survey of 486 students attending five public high schools in Brooklyn and Manhattan. They found that one fourth of all students said they had not received any of the mandated HIV/AIDS training over the past year. more... 3 Comments
Michael Bielawski | They can be found near landmarks such as Central Park in the day and Times Square at night. The Central Park rides are in direct competition with the traditional horse carriages and that’s when the trouble came. Instead of friendly competition, the horse carriage companies have insisted pedicabs are illegal because we do not carry the vending license required to sell things in the city. We argue we are a service, and do not require a vending license, which doesn’t apply to us even if we wanted it. more... 6 CommentsPage 27 | Page 25
