Lupica: New York’s Voters Are Choosing The Future They Want For Their City

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.

Although the Giants have faced Welker several times before, this will be the first time Thomas will match wits against the veteran. “Hes good at (getting open) and hes a slot wide receiver to the T,” Thomas said. “Hes very explosive out of his breaks. If you can be explosive out of your breaks out of the slot it makes you very productive. Hes very good east and west and north and south but hes not explosive north to south compared to east to west.” So then what will Thomas need to do in order to contain Welker when he’s in the slot? “You can try to take him out and be physical with him, but he finds a way to win and his quarterback that he played with in New England was very motivated and he expected him to win,” Fewell noted. Im sure Peyton expects him to win in matchups also. You cannot take one play off.Yes, you must be physical, yet you cant show them the same things over and over and over, but you have to take that physical mentality and that mindset into the game and compete and challenge them on every single down. Running Back David Wilson Brad Penner-USA TODAY Sports Giants head coach Tom Coughlin didn’t wait for the question to be asked during his post-practice Thursday press conference. ” David Wilson did okay with his technique today,” he said. “He had multiple carries and he also carried the ball and put it in the proper position, so I would say today he made good progress.” That’s all well and good, but the fact of the matter is that the speed and intensity of practice isn’t quite the same as what one will find in a game. Where Wilson tends to get into trouble with his ball security is when he goes to make a move to gain additional yardage, a process in which the ball tends to shift in his grasp to a less than secure position. In an exclusive interview posted on the team’s official web site ( Giants.com ), Coughlin said he made it very clear to Wilson what he’s expecting out of the young man moving forward. You have to make sure that there is no time when the player deviates from the exact technique that youre looking for,” he said. “Right now, at the expense of maybe speed, hell have two hands on the ball when he runs with the ball.

New York banking regulator probes PwC, Promontory

All along, the whole thing has seemed small because of the people running, even with a small forward like de Blasio towering over the other Democrats on the stage, to the point where one spectacular ad with a teenage kid in it de Blasios son has so clearly helped turn things around in his favor. It does not change how big this election is, how much does change if de Blasio is the next mayor, and not just because he has set himself apart from the field because of a vision for New York that is so vastly different from Mike Bloomberg s. David Handschuh/New York Daily News Bill de Blasio (seen with daughter Chiara, son Dante and wife Chirlane McCray) is leading the Democratic primary tally for mayor. Oh, sure. The subtext of de Blasios tale of two cities is really this his New York City and Bloombergs. If people havent been paying attention, Evans-Mills said at LaGuardia High, they sure better start paying attention now. Theres either going to be the New York weve had lately, or the New York that these Democrats say theyve got to change it back into. Bill de Blasio has run the best campaign with the clearest and most relatable message, is how the Democrat I spoke to put it. Others were reactive with no rationale to vote for them. This was less about Bloomberg and more about (de Blasio) being someone with a clear, positive vision to change the city for the middle class and minority voters. RELATED: NYC MAYORAL HOPEFUL LHOTA WINS GOP PRIMARY But then the guy added this: Its going to be tough to translate that to the general (election), though. Once, when it was Giuliani and Dinkins, Giuliani beat an incumbent mayor by coming up as the candidate who would bang as many heads as necessary to clean up squeegee guys and Times Square and everything else. And won with that. Then came Bloomberg to run the city this well and for this long, running it like one of his businesses, the last truly independent mayor the city will ever see because nobody who came knocking on his door had anything he wanted. Along the way, he and Ray Kelly, a great police commissioner despite what you hear from Democrats these days, kept the city as safe in a post-Sept. 11 world as it could be. Now comes de Blasio thinking it is his time, the hot Democrat in a city where Democrats have the numbers, to say he is going to change everything back to the way it was when his friend Dinkins was mayor. And a Giuliani guy, Lhota, trying to stop him.

Bill de Blasio (seen with daughter Chiara, son Dante and wife Chirlane McCray) is leading the Democratic primary tally for mayor.

The subpoenas, issued by the New York State Department of Financial Services, are part of a probe of the independence of consultants retained by banks, often at the behest of regulators. State and federal authorities have increased scrutiny of the financial services consulting industry since the firms were hired to review foreclosure abuses in 2011 and billed more than $2 billion before regulators canceled the project. The probe of PwC focuses on its work for Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi UFJ, according to the people with knowledge of the matter, who were not authorized to speak publicly. In June, Bank of Tokyo-Mitsubishi agreed to pay New York state $250 million for deleting information from $100 billion in wire transfers that authorities could have used to police transactions with sanctioned countries like Iran. PwC consulted on a review of the transactions and over the course of the summer turned over to New York documents related to that review, according to one of the sources. The investigation is ongoing, that source said. A PwC spokeswoman declined comment. Promontory is being probed in connection with its work for British-based Standard Bank and another bank, the source said. The source would not identify the second bank. Promontory did a review of Standard Chartered’s improper transactions, the source said. Promontory did not immediately return a call for comment. Last year, Standard Chartered agreed to pay $340 million to New York over transactions linked to Iran and other sanctioned countries. Deloitte LLP’s financial advisory unit, which also did consulting work for the bank, settled with New York in June. New York had accused Deloitte of omitting key information in a report to regulators after reviewing Standard Chartered’s operations.
