Gov. Andrew Cuomo said Friday that his efforts to get Amazon back on board with a New York headquarters have not worked and that he doesn't want the failed Amazon deal to drive other companies away. The Democratic governor said in a radio interview that he has spoken to Amazon executives in the two weeks since they pulled the plug on a planned secondary headquarters in New York. "They have given no indication that they would reconsider," Cuomo said. "So, I think the point was more, not that Amazon is going to change its mind, I don't think that they do."

By Meredith Goldstein Globe staff Sometimes I hear about a kind of jealousy between people in New York City and Boston. But it has nothing to do with baseball. It’s about a different thing. My single friends in Boston tell me it would be “sooo much easier” to find love if they lived in New York City. Those friends (and some Boston-area readers of my Globe advice column) believe that the dating options would be more plentiful in New York, and that there’d be a better night life scene for meeting strangers. They know for certain there’d be a more diverse dating pool — and perhaps fewer men on apps in TB12 hats. (Not judging the apparel, but that particular look and fandom isn’t for everyone.) Meanwhile, some of my single friends and readers in New York City have wondered whether it might be easier to find a partner in Boston. Those New Yorkers assume that in a smaller city, people might be less transient. Less fickle. They believe that in a … [Read more...] about Which city is better for singles: Boston or New York?
Home Daily News Judge tosses New York City's climate change… Environmental Law By Debra Cassens Weiss Posted July 20, 2018, 12:00 pm CDT Roschetzky Photography/Shutterstock.com. A federal judge in Manhattan has dismissed New York City’s nuisance lawsuit seeking to hold five major oil companies liable for the effects of climate change caused by greenhouse gases. U.S. District Judge John Keenan said climate change “is a fact of life” but it’s a problem that must be addressed by the political branches of government rather than the federal courts. Courthouse News Service and the New York Times have stories. Keenan’s ruling follows a San Francisco federal judge’s decision last month to toss climate change lawsuits filed against oil companies by two cities in California’s Bay Area. Both judges cited the 2011 U.S. Supreme Court decision American Electric Power v. Connecticut, which held the Clean Air Act displaced federal common law claims … [Read more...] about Judge tosses New York City’s climate change lawsuit against major oil companies
