New York City Moves Past Raucous Mayoral Primary

As of now, they have enough capital to produce their first show, ” Anna Nicole ,” which runs from Sept. 17 to Sept. 28 at the BAM Howard Gilman Opera House . At the time of writing, the Kickstarter campaign had raised about $65,000. But if the opera doesn’t raise enough money, it will be forced to suspend plays such as ” Endimione ” and ” Bluebeard’s Castle ,” which are currently slated for February and March of next year. Then, regardless of whether the September fundraising is successful, the opera has until the end of December to raise $13 million more. That’s the expected cost of the 2014-15 performances, which Steel says they want to pay for upfront. If they cannot, he says the company will cancel the season. Money has been especially tight for the New York City Opera since leaving its former home at New York City’s Lincoln Center in 2011. Its performances have dwindled from 100 per year to just 20. But they raised $11.5 million in 2012, according to the New York Times more money than it was able to generate in years past.

New York City mourns Sept. 11 victims

American flags decorate a name on the 9/11 Memorial during a ceremony marking the 12th anniversary of the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks at the World Trade Center site in New York City. Ceremonies honored the nearly 3,000 people killed when hijacked airliners slammed into the World Trade Center, the Pentagon and a field in Shanksville, Pa.

As New York emerges from Tuesday’s contentious primaries, Democrats are favored to win for the first time since Democratic incumbent David Dinkins lost to Rudy Giuliani in 1993. Much of the upcoming general election campaign will likely focus on the legacy of those two decades: a dramatic decrease in crime and the police tactics involved, soaring housing prices and an intense focus on testing to improve schools. In the volatile Democratic primary, front-runner status shifted regularly. Christine Quinn, speaker of the City Council, ally of Mayor Michael Bloomberg and potential history maker as the first openly gay mayor, sat atop opinion polls for months. Then disgraced former congressman Anthony Weiner leapt into the race, drawing nationwide coverage, and briefly led surveys. Weiner ultimately flamed out with revelations that he had continued to exchange lewd messages with women online even after he had quit Congress over a sexting scandal. With a well-timed late surge, Bill de Blasio, the city’s public advocate, went into Tuesday’s voting having eclipsed the field in pre-election polls thanks to an appealing family and an anti-establishment message. The big question ahead of Tuesday’s voting was whether de Blasio would take 40% of the vote and win outright or a runoff would be required. The Republican primary matched experience Joe Lhota served as budget director for Giuliani and also headed the regional transit agency, responsible for the city’s subways, buses and commuter railroads against money: supermarket mogul John Catsimatidis used his personal fortune to finance his first political campaign. The winner among Democratic primary voters the city’s most liberal — will have to pass another threshold test to win the election in November, says Evan Thies, a New York Democratic consultant. In the primary, candidates criticized Bloomberg for focusing on the wealthy at the expense of everyone else: de Blasio, for instance, called New York “a tale of two cities.” Now, Thies said, a Democrat like de Blasio must make a more pragmatic case: “How does he argue that he’s fit to manage the city and not just lead a popular revolution?” Republicans will argue that a return to Democratic control means a return to high crime. At the center of the debate are street stops by police, which a federal court has ruled are unfairly targeting minorities. Democrats have vowed to rein in the policy; Republicans say it is an important tool in maintaining the historically low crime rate.

New York

Down by three, New York started this drive with two wide receivers, an in-line tight end and two backs in the I-formation. The situation and formation indicate that the play will be a run. Nicks and Cruz take off downfield while Manning’s play-fake to David Wilson draws the linebackers toward the line of scrimmage, opening up the field behind them. That’s when Manning strikes. When the ball reaches Nicks’ hands, Dallas’ Morris Claiborne cannot recover from the massive cushion he allowed New York’s top receiver. Manning’s pass was perfectly delivered, and Claiborne immediately becomes a chaser. Since Nicks is able to catch the pass in stride, Dallas’ linebackers are unable to recover quickly enough to catch him as he slices through the middle, reversing his field. The precision on the play-action fake, route and throw were the difference between a short gain and a 57-yard strike. Recognize the breakdowns Just outside the two-minute warning before the half, the Giants took advantage of a disoriented Dallas defense. With New York running the two-minute drill, Cowboys safety Will Allen is visibly unsure of the coverage before the snap. Moments before the play begins, three defensive lineman are turned away from the line of scrimmage, while linebackers Sean Lee and Bruce Carter appear to be facing each other. Cruz takes off on a fly route, releasing from the slot position. The Cowboys get a significant push up the middle, but Manning is able to sidestep the rush. Manning’s nifty move in the pocket allowed just enough time for Cruz to blow past Allen, who is clearly not prepared for deep coverage. By the time the ball reaches Cruz, he is far behind the confused Cowboys’ defense, on his way to his first of three touchdowns on the night.
