The skeleton of Governor Andrew Cuomo's legislative plan hasn't changed much since he detailed it back in December, with many of the gaps still unfilled after his State of the State address on Tuesday. Few enough changes and details have been provided that his previously unannounced plan to legalize sports betting in New York's four upstate casinos is noteworthy. "We invested in upstate casinos. Let's authorize sports betting the upstate casinos," Cuomo said. "It's here, it's a reality, and it will help generate activity in those casinos." The casinos, which were first authorized by the State in 2014, have previously failed to meet revenue expectations and have been lobbying for the ability to handle sports betting since last year.

I’m also a college student, currently residing in an apartment attached to my dad’s house. I am thankful to be living rent-free, but I’m miserable. I recently came back from a vacation to New York City and, as always, I loved it! But I get depressed every time I come home. I have dreams of moving there. There is a guy there who works for the NYPD, who I see every time I visit. I’m not sure if my feelings for him are infatuation or true love. I’m unsure of how he feels about me.

The case is being closely watched around the country. ByKatie Thomas June 24, 2018 A wave of breakthrough drugs is transforming the medical world, offering hope for people with deadly diseases despite their dizzying price tags.
