  • Playoff Pinch Hits: Royals Getting More Value From Payroll Than Giants

    24 Oct 2014 | 8:29 am
    By Sam McPherson The 2014 World Series is tied at one game apiece as the Kansas City Royals head to San Francisco’s AT&T Park for Game Three Friday night against the Giants. On paper, however, this Fall Classic is a mismatch, with one team spending almost $62 million more on its roster. Major League Baseball lacks a salary cap, of course, the only one of the four primary North American professional sports leagues that doesn’t have a level playing field. The Royals and their $100 million payroll are considered one of the “small-market” teams, while the Giants and…

Back-to-back losses against Pittsburgh and Toronto might have suggested that the Isles were crashing back down to earth, but they didn’t panic. Captain John Tavares wasn’t too concerned, either. “It’s a long season,” he said. “After four games we weren’t winning the Stanley Cup and after six games we’re not winning it. We have a couple of big games this week, so we have to be ready and we have…

Neither team is putting many points on the board -- they’re two of only six NFL franchises averaging under 20 a game -- so recent history suggests it will likely be a low-scoring slugfest.Of course, the fact that the Bills, at 4-3, have a better record than the 3-3 Seahwawks (among other teams) nearly halfway through the season tells you what recent history is worth.

But while price per square foot continues to rise across the market, other market dynamics are starting to shift.The number of closed sales was the second highest figure seen in over five years. Because only Third Quarter 2013 was higher, Third Quarter 2014 registered a 10% year-over-year drop in sales. The number of sales is highly affected by two trends: limited inventory at low price points and the strength of the new development pre-sale market.

  • The Jump Scares of Ouija, Ranked

    Rich Juzwiak on Rankings, shared by Lacey Donohue to Gawker
    24 Oct 2014 | 8:29 am
    Ouija, this year's studio horror flick timed for Halloween, is not a scary movie. In fact, its scares almost only come in the form of jump scares—fake outs that are generally accompanied by a loud banging to make you flinch. Relying on these cinematic jack-in-the-boxes is bad filmmaking. Ouija is a bad film. Below, Ouija's jump scares are ranked.Read more...
  • Ebola Vaccine Finally Getting Tested Because Americans Freaked Out

    Adam Weinstein on Fortress America, shared by Lacey Donohue to Gawker
    24 Oct 2014 | 8:18 am
    There is an Ebola vaccine that is 100 percent effective on monkeys. It has sat on a shelf, untested and unavailable to humans, for nearly a decade, while thousands of Africans died of the virus, because drug research is expensive and who's gonna pay Big Pharma for all that risk? Dying Africans? It's market economics, people.Read more...

    Breaking Bad star Aaron Paul is pissed that Toys R Us has stopped selling action figures from the show at the behest of a concerned Florida mom. Like costar Bryan Cranston, Paul took to Twitter to defend the toys, pointing out that the toy chain sells plenty of things more harmful to kids than a Jesse Pinkman doll.

But MTT has come forward to say that that’s not quite the way things went down. (Social media posts from other audience members have backed him up.) (includes audio)

    “On the evening of 8 October 2002, the Metropolitan Museum of Art suffered what its former director Philippe de Montebello described as the ‘single worst thing that has ever happened at the museum’. One of its greatest treasure, Tullio Lombardo’s life-sized marble sculpture of the nude Adam crashed to the stone floor as its medium-density plywood stand buckled and collapsed.”

  • Seasonal Cafe Maman Has a Secret Weapon: A Michelin Starred French Chef in the Kitchen

    Kat Odell
    24 Oct 2014 | 8:27 am
    Welcome back to The Green Scene, a series in which Eater Editorial Producer Kat Odell unearths delicious healthy restaurants throughout the city that endorse a sustainable lifestyle. Maman fits the bill with grab-and-go seasonal eats by a Michelin-starred French chef. Chef Armand Arnal's resume reads hilariously backward. At age 18, he moved to New York to learn French cookery from masters Daniel Boulud at Daniel and then Alain Ducasse at The Essex House, where he stayed for four years. Arnal eventually returned to his motherland and took over the restaurant La Chassagnette and its vast…

    Diners dig the dessert, but not the prices. Cosme's still in its soft opening phase but tables are already hard to come by. Those lucky enough to snag a seat at Enrique Olvera's first New York project have been posting their thoughts — and photos — online giving a very early look at what to expect and what to order. The standout dishes so far are Olvera's octopus cocktail, cobia al pastor (originally listed as tataki al pastor), and New York strip with shishito peppers.

    The $95 price tag for brunch is worth it for that view says the 'Cuzz. Steve Cuozzo stops by the Rainbow Room for the lavishly priced $95 brunch. To him, the menu (and "Singapore" noodles that recall soggy takeout) seems almost irrelevant — it's all about the view and the statement that New York is back. "Manhattan has not had a sky-high dining experience since 9/11. The new Rainbow Room celebrates the grandest occasion of all — New York's rebirth, revealed in its radiant, heart," writes Cuozzo. Still, he offers some insight into what to eat and what to stay very far away from for those…

As most New Yorkers know by now, last night doctor Craig Spencer, who recently returned from treating Ebola patients in Guinea, tested positive for the disease and is currently being held in quarantine in Bellevue hospital. Now, as the story develops, much of the focus is on what he did on Wednesday, before (it's important to emphasize) he developed any symptoms. As any tabloid headline will tell you, he went…

    Angie Schmitt

    Back in the ’70s, Clayton County didn’t want to be part of MARTA, Atlanta’s regional transit service. It was one of the suburban counties that “opted out.” In fact, all of Atlanta’s metro counties opted out except DeKalb and Fulton — the two that share the city of Atlanta proper. Suburban Clayton County wants to be the first county to join Atlanta’s MARTA since the 1970s. Photo: Transportation for America But times are changing.

There is quite a bit of software behind the scenes that connects the checkout experience to the seller’s shop on Etsy and all of the seller tools that Etsy provides. The better way to think about this is that Etsy Reader extends a seller’s Etsy Store to the real world of…

In the early days of OAuth, Twitter was an innovator and leader in this area.

He wondered why people make this claim. “Viruses don’t work that way,” he said. He said it is nonsense. OF BLOODY COURSE IT IS NONSENSE! The dope confused CONTAGIOUS with INFECTED. And, yes… those who contract…

  • 2014 - Book #95

    24 Oct 2014 | 4:24 am
    As part of my October spooky series reading challenge, the ninty-fifth book I read in 2014 was Dead Over Heels by MaryJanice Davidson. This is a collection of 3 novellas, one of which is book 6.5 in her Undead series about vampire queen Betsy Taylor. This is the series I will be focusing on this month for my Spooky Series reading challenge for the month of October. I finished this book on 10/23/14. I rated this book 3.75 stars out of a scale of 5. The first novella in this book is Undead and Wed: A Honeymoon Story. This story takes place only a few days after where Undead and Uneasy left…

  • NYC may start giving out letter grades to taxi drivers

    12 Oct 2014 | 12:58 pm
    Here’s a tip for cabbies — start shaping up because the city is considering handing out grades. A bill being drafted by City Councilman Carlos Menchaca would for the first time keep scores on all drivers licensed by the Taxi and Limousine Commission. Menchaca (D-Brooklyn) told The Post he’s still finalizing the details, which is why he declined to offer specifics on how drivers would be measured. But it wasn’t difficult to come up with criteria, since the TLC maintains loads of data on rule violations, traffic summonses, vehicle safety checks and even passenger commendations. The…
  • Taxi Windshields Will Get These Stickers Reminding Hacks Not To Run Over Pedestrians

    21 Sep 2014 | 1:49 pm
    The Taxi & Limousine Commission has voted on a proposal that would require taxis drivers to post stickers in their vehicles reminding them to watch for pedestrians while making turns. The proposal was part of a package of bills presented at a TLC meeting today, all of which aim to support Mayor de Blasio’s Vision Zero initiative to eliminate transit fatalities. These safety stickers, placed behind a cab’s rearview mirror, will be mandatory in all vehicles: Drivers also have the option of posting an additional warning sticker on their rear bumpers, reminding other drivers that…
  • Woman killed by taxi despite bystanders who lifted cab off

    29 Aug 2014 | 6:16 pm
    A woman was fatally run over by a taxi on the Upper East Side — despite the heroic efforts of good Samaritans who hoisted the cab off of her, cops and witnesses said. The 58-year-old pedestrian was crossing East 79th Street at Madison Avenue just before 2 p.m., Friday, when she was leveled by a yellow cab SUV turning onto East 79th, authorities said. Nearly two dozen bystanders flipped the cab onto its side, and the woman was rushed to Lenox Hill Hospital, but she was pronounced dead on arrival, according to police. Cops did not immediately release the woman’s identity. It was not…

  • 6,000 More Boro Taxis Coming to NYC Streets

    26 Aug 2014 | 6:35 pm
    The city’s green taxi fleet is set to double in size. The Taxi and Limousine Commission is selling up to 6,000 licenses for the so-called Boro Taxis, serving Brooklyn, Queens, the Bronx and Manhattan above 96th street. It will take a couple of months for the new vehicles to start rolling, joining the 5,471 already on city streets. “We had a wait list of well in excess of the number available, so I would say interest has been pretty strong,” said Allan Fromberg, a spokesperson for the Taxi and Limousine Commission. The new licenses cost $3,000, up from $1,500. That’s a steal compared…

  • Postcard Thursday: Morgan's Bank and the New York Stock Exchange

    Michelle and James Nevius
    23 Oct 2014 | 8:57 am
    We just acquired this postcard recently, showing Morgan's Bank and the New York Stock Exchange. The exchange (on the right) was new in 1904 when this card was sent, having opened on April 22, 1903. It is unclear when the image was actually produced, but notice that pediment of the NYSE is blank. While's there's a chance that this is because the image predates sculptor JQA Ward finishing his monumental work that adorns the pediment, "Integrity Protecting the Works of Man" (below), it is more likely that the pediment was erased when making the postcard to make the image easier to read.On the…

    Today's postcard may be familiar to you, especially if you read James's article on Curbed a few months ago about places to seek out Dutch heritage in New York City.The building pictured here is the old Dutch city hall, or stadt huis, which was originally opened in 1642 as the municipal tavern. As we write in Inside the Apple:On February 2, 1653, New Amsterdam officially became the first legally chartered city in America. [Peter Stuyvesant] would be advised by a council of five schepens (aldermen), two burgomasters (chief magistrates), and a schout-fiscal (sheriff and district attorney)—all…
  • Postcard Thursday: Fraunces Tavern and British Colonial New York

    Michelle and James Nevius

    One of the most storied buildings in Lower Manhattan is Fraunces Tavern at the corner of Pearl Street and Broad Street. (And storied is the right word, since much of the building's history seems to be made up.) Known as the place where George Washington bade farewell to his officers, it had originally been the home of Stephen Delancey, a prosperous merchant in the English Colonial period.In 1700, Stephen married Anne Van Cortlandt, the daughter of the city's former mayor, who had purchased the lot some years earlier and gave it to Stephen and Anne as a wedding present. In 1720, or…

    As usual, the debut of the new iPhone 6 from Apple has taken NYC by storm.  In the lead up to the phone going on sale on September 19th, things were crowded as usual but relatively calm. But by the morning of the 19th the Apple store on 5th Avenue was a total mob scene.  The Apple staff had pretty much lost control of any sense of order. In fact, people couldn’t even figure out where the line ended, and that was because it didn’t.  The line for the new iPhone ran from the Apple store entrance between 58th & 59th Streets all the way up to 77th Street, almost a full mile…

    Karlyn Ferrari

    With all the emphasis on STEM subjects in school these days, it's no wonder NYC's children's museums have been mounting interactive installations that try to teach science, technology, engineering and mathematics concepts in a fun and engaging way. But up until now, these STEM-themed exhibits have mostly been at places with those words in their name, like the New York Hall of Science, the Museum of Mathematics and the Sony Wonder Technology Lab—not the Brooklyn Children's Museum. Much as my family loves BCM (as borough residents it's one of our go-to cold weather play spots), I've always…

    We spend a lot of time writing about Halloween fun for little kids like costume parades and tame seasonal fetes. But what happens when your tween outgrows those kinds of all-ages celebrations? A lot of eye-rolling, that's what. As the mom of a nine-year-old desperate to grow up, I know that firsthand. But I also know he's not quite ready for full-on adult Halloween events like those super-freaky haunted houses. Take for instance the monster of the moment: zombies. He's very into the walking dead but I won't let him watch The Walking Dead. (Especially not this season—yikes!) However, we have…
