Sal Maiorana Rochester Democrat and Chronicle Published 5:39 PM EST Dec 9, 2018 ORCHARD PARK – This was vintage Buffalo Bills, wasn’t it? The kind of loss this team has patented throughout the 21st century. At home, against a slightly inferior team, a team riding a six-game losing streak, yet the Bills found a way to blow a 14-3 lead and lose 27-23 to the New York Jets on a cold, blue sky afternoon at New Era Field. Just ugly in every way. The Bills were favored by the wise guys in Las Vegas for the first time this season, but the same Jets who essentially quit after two plays in the game at the Meadowlands a month ago when Buffalo rolled to a 41-10 victory, had no quit in them in this one. And thus, Chapter 1 of the Josh Allen vs. Sam Darnold rivalry goes to Darnold, who was picked by the Jets four slots ahead of Buffalo’s selection of Allen in the 2018 NFL Draft. The Bills had taken a 23-20 lead with 2:31 to go on a 36-yard field goal by Stephen Hauschka, but … [Read more...] about Buffalo Bills, Josh Allen find ways to blow game against New York Jets

Joseph Spector Albany Bureau Published 6:00 AM EST Nov 21, 2018 ALBANY - Reshad Ahmadi finally said, "Enough is enough." As an Afghan consultant and engineer on a U.S. military base near Kabul, he said he was often threatened and even held up at gunpoint by masked men because he was working with the United States. So in June 2017, he was able to get a special immigrant visa and bring his wife and two young children to the United States. He was aided by HIAS New York, a group that helps refugees, and now he lives in White Plains and works as an engineer in Queens. "I feel safe," said Ahmadi, 32. "I feel blessed that I was able to get out of Afghanistan and being given this opportunity to start a new life, and very happy to have a good job." Ahmadi's story is increasingly rare in the United States and, in particular, in New York, which has had the third-largest refugee population in the nation. The Trump administration's travel ban, upheld by the U.S. Supreme … [Read more...] about After Trump travel ban, refugees to New York plummet
POLITICS 11/13/2018 01:49 pm ET Updated 20 minutes ago Now, some of the same elected officials are outraged by the $2 billion in subsidies the company is getting to set up shop. By Daniel Marans The vast majority of elected officials in New York City signed a letter to Amazon CEO Jeff Bezos in October 2017 inviting the mega-company to locate its second headquarters ― “HQ2” ― in the five boroughs. “As the most dynamic and diverse city in the world, New York City will help propel Amazon’s future growth and kickstart an exciting new chapter in the company’s history,” New York City’s then-public advocate, borough presidents, representatives in the U.S. House and state legislature, and city council members argued in their letter to Bezos. “And we know that, no matter which city neighborhood it might choose for its new headquarters, Amazon will be a strong contributor to our civic and commercial life.” Now … [Read more...] about New York City Politicians Welcomed Amazon In 2017 Letter To Jeff Bezos

This story was originally published by ProPublica. Every night, Alauddin Akonjee set the alarm clock in the bedroom of his home in Ozone Park, Queens, fearful he wouldn’t wake in time for morning prayer. And each morning, he and his wife, Minara, would be awake before the buzzer sounded.
