    Share this: As he eyes a possible political future in Albany, Mayor Bill de Blasio pitched his next big education ideas Thursday: year-round school and extended school days across New York. De Blasio stopped just short of announcing a run for governor as he touted his statewide education plan on MSNBC’s “Morning Joe,” and he did not share many specifics. It’s unclear how the proposals differ from the universal summer programming he launched in New York City this year that was open to all students for the first time. “The school day, the school year doesn’t fit the realities for families, and therefore, middle class people, working class people struggle to find a way,” de Blasio said. “How do you have a school day that ends at 2:30 or 3 o’clock when parents don’t get out of work ‘til 5? How do you have a school year that ends in June when, in fact, kids need options all summer long.”

    New York Attorney General Letitia James has slammed Governor Kathy Hochul over her alleged failure to address the rising COVID-19 rates in the state. James, who announced her bid for governor just three weeks ago, argues that with rising cases rates in upstate New York, state leadership needs to 'take immediate action to bring the infection rates under control and help stop future surges before they happen'. 'State government is failing to act to address the COVID crisis in some of the most vulnerable communities in New York state - this past week, the 7-day average percentage of positive test results increased from 8.87 percent to 9.48 percent in Western NY. Rates are also above 8 percent in the Finger Lakes,' she said. The attorney general said it was 'troubling' that despite vaccine accessibility, some regions in New York are currently reporting hospitalization rates that exceed numbers from last year.  James said the government needs to take action: 'It is time to act now to save lives. Anything short of bold action is unacceptable.' New York Attorney General Letitia James (pictured) has slammed...

    The Duke and Duchess of Sussex were spotted flying back to their home in LA on a commercial flight after a short trip to New York earlier this month. Meghan and Harry spent three days in the Big Apple to mark Veterans Day and attend events in the city before flying back on November 13. A picture shared online by a fellow passenger appears to show a suited Prince Harry wearing a face mask leaving the plane after it landed in LA. It comes after the couple were accused of hypocrisy in September when they flew home from a climate change event on a private jet.  The passenger wrote on social media: 'Ok this might sound unbelievable and I couldn’t get a good picture and I get [sic] you can say this could literally be anyone….BUT….Prince Harry and Meghan were on our flight to LA last night!

    Meghan Markle has been accused of pulling rank on Prince Harry during their appearance at a Veterans Day gala in New York. Earlier this month, the Duke and Duchess of Sussex made a rare public appearance at the 2021 Salute to Freedom Gala at the Intrepid Museum in New York. Both sporting red poppies, Harry also wore his military medals and the cross of the Knight Commander of Royal Victorian Order, while Meghan wore a red gown. But keen observers noticed that as the couple were welcomed to the stage, where army veteran Prince Harry was due to present Intrepid Valor medals, the television prompt listed the Duchess of Sussex first before his title. The detail was questioned by viewers who characterised it as odd given that it was a Veterans Day event and Prince Harry was there because of his military background and to award fellow veterans with bravery awards. Viewers were left questioning why Meghan's title, the Duchess of Sussex, was listed before that of her husband former soldier Prince Harry who was there to award bravery medals...

    Republicans have increasingly embraced antisemitic comparisons of vaccine mandates to the Holocaust. An anti-vaccine protester with a swastika drawn on a sign was standing prominently next to New York Republican gubernatorial hopeful Rob Astorino at a rally on Sunday, the latest incident in which a Republican candidate or elected official has been associated with antisemitic comparisons of vaccine mandates to the Holocaust. The protester was one of around 100 demonstrators who gathered in to protest a bill sponsored by New York state Assemblyman Jeffrey Dinowitz, who is Jewish, that would mandate COVID-19 vaccines for students in New York. The rally was held outside Dinowitz's office in the Bronx. Dinowitz called the display of the symbol "repugnant and offensive." Astorino claimed later that he didn't see the sign — which was just feet away from where he was speaking. "I had no idea until I saw this photo. If I'd seen it I'd have told them to take sign down," Astorino tweeted Sunday night in response to Dinowitz. "No comparison to those atrocities...

    Share this: New York State Attorney General Letitia James on Wednesday released a statement supporting New York State’s gun laws in anticipation of oral arguments before the U.S. Supreme Court in the case New York State Rifle & Pistol Association v. Bruen, in which the plaintiffs seek to overturn a New York law governing the carrying of firearms outside the home. In part, she said, “New York has some of the strongest gun laws in the nation, but guns do not stop working as they cross the threshold of another state’s border, which is why our gun licensing laws are necessary. This year alone, the United States has already seen over 600 mass shootings and more than 37,000 individuals have died as a result of gun violence. We are now in the Supreme Court, defending our right to prevent New York from becoming the next community devastated by gun violence.”  In March 2019, the New York State Rifle & Pistol Association (NYSRPA) and two individuals sued New York State in U.S. District Court for the Northern District of New York, claiming that...

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork) — Curtis Sliwa walked into Frank McCourt High School to vote Tuesday on the Upper West Side, but the Republican candidate was not happy with the process. “First, they kept Gizmo out,” he told reporters. Gizmo is Sliwa’s 4-week-old cat. READ MORE: New York City Mayoral Candidates Eric Adams, Curtis Sliwa Hit The Polls As Campaigns Wind DownThat was one of three problems the Guardian Angels founder faced. He was asked to remove his campaign jacket, as required by law, and his ballot got stuck in the scanner. “They said we had to take the jackets off,” he said. “Now, my ballot is somehow in a repository in the machine without being counted.” He was eventually allowed to wear the jacket while voting. Outside those concerns, Sliwa is dealing with a bigger battle on Election Day. He has to overcome a 7-to-1 Democratic registration advantage in the city to win. It’s a huge undertaking for a man who has, to name a few, promised to tackle crime, homelessness, re-fund the police. He’s also said he will lose...
    New York Attorney General Letitia James has fired back at Andrew Cuomo's claim that her report on the sexual harassment allegations against him was a politically motivated ploy to launch her candidacy for governor. Speaking to reporters on Monday in Manhattan days after announcing her own candidacy, James defended her August report that led directly to Cuomo's resignation as governor, according to the New York Post.  'Listen, we completed our investigation. Our investigation included thousands and thousands of pieces of evidence and substantiated and corroborated all of the allegations,' she said. 'The Sheriff of Albany County has engaged in an independent investigation and my work is done. But I believe the women,' added James, an elected Democrat. The fierce war of words comes as the 2022 New York governor's race heats up, with James openly challenging Cuomo's replacement, Democrat Kathy Hochul, and Mayor Bill de Blasio reportedly mulling his own bid for the Executive Mansion.  New York Attorney General Letitia James has fired back at Andrew Cuomo's claim that her report on the sexual harassment allegations against him was politically motivated...
