    ALBANY — Gov. Cuomo made it clear Wednesday why he has recently bypassed the Legislature on different issues like raising the minimum wage for fast-food workers. "I run the government," Cuomo said. "I am the executive and therefore I use executive power. And that’s why the executive is given the power," Cuomo said during an appearance on upstate public radio’s “The Capitol Pressroom.” Cuomo dismissed criticism that his actions represent a major power grab by going around the Legislature. In addition to creating a board that has recommended raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour for fast food workers,...

    ALBANY - Days after getting the right to marry people, Gov. Cuomo will officiate a same-sex marriage Sunday morning an hour before marching in the city gay pride parade. Cuomo will marry David Contreras Turley, 36, and Peter Thiede, 35. "It’s hard to believe everything that’s happened in the last 24 hours,” Turley told the Daily News on Saturday night. “The opportunity arose for us to get married by the governor, and we couldn’t be happier.” Longtime gay rights activist Edie Windsor, who was part of a landmark Supreme Court decision, will deliver the opening remarks at the ceremony, which...

    Gov. Cuomo, speaking at the funeral of his murdered aide Saturday, urged Washington Democrats to shut down the government until they get a gun control bill that works. The governor gave an emotional eulogy at Carey Gabay’s funeral at the Emmanuel Baptist Church in Clinton Hill. He told the dozens of mourners that the 43-year-old’s death from an errant bullet fired in the wake of a Labor Day J’Ouvert celebration in Crown Heights was “one of the most tragic pointless examples of the rampant violence that is spreading like a cancer through our society.” “His murder showed a disrespect for...

    An off-duty New Jersey state trooper chased after three unarmed teenagers and shot at them early Sunday after they accidentally knocked on his door, officials said Wednesday. Trooper Kissinger Barreau told investigators he believed the teens were trying to break into his Sparta home, CBS New York reported. Police said they are investigating the shooting, but Barreau remains on active duty and hasn’t faced any charges. One of the teens, 18-year-old Jesse Barkhorn, said he and his friends were dropping people off after a party Sunday. They mistakenly knocked on the trooper’s door, having mistaken it for a friend's house,...

She eventually jumped off the car and fell into the road as her mom, 46-year-old Rena Mae Giancherio, drove away last Monday. “I went over to check on (the girl) and her knees are all cut up,” neighbor Terry Heller told the station. “She’s on the curb just crying and the mom is already gone, just drove off, she didn’t stop or look down.” The girl injured her foot from the fall,...

Rachel Dolezal, who heads Spokane’s NAACP chapter and teaches Africana studies at Eastern Washington University, refused to directly answers any questions about her alleged racial ruse after it was reported. A KXLY reporter bluntly asked her, “Are you African-American?” After a stunned pause, she replied: "“I don’t understand the question."

    ISIS appears to declare war on controversial blogger Pamela Geller on Tuesday in an ominous online message claiming it has fighters across America ready to attack "any target we desire." The threat, posted on anonymous message board JustPasteIt, singles out Geller, who helped plan a Prophet Muhammad cartoon contest that was attacked by two gunmen in Garland, Texas, over the weekend. ISIS claimed responsibility for the shooting early Tuesday, marking the first time the terror group called an American attack one of its own, though lawmakers believe the two men were influenced by the group, not guided directly by it.

This is so dangerous, it’s not even funny,” Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority Police Chief Thomas J. Nestel III told “We have operating trains down there. There are passengers waiting for the train ... it’s horrendous.” The video, which was time-stamped around 3:15 p.m., shows about a dozen teenagers either participating in a one-minute assault on two male students, or cheering it on. One of the assailants falls...

    Officers in Framingham, Mass. swarmed a home Tuesday morning with guns drawn, shouted for its residents to come out, searched inside — and then realized the bust was a bust. This home was the latest victim of "swatting," a prank where an anonymous caller tricks police into sending a heavy presence to a quiet home that has no crime happening inside. In this case, Framingham resident Irandi Waighe and her 96-year-old mother-in-law — who is a double amputee in a wheelchair — were the ones awakened to a false alarm. The call came in around 8 a.m. from a blocked...

    He's the hero Baltimore deserves — and, for better or worse, the one it needs right now. A man built like a brick house, wearing a surgical mask and wielding a machete, has been dubbed the "Baltimore Batman" for taking justice into his own hands when chaos came over Baltimore during protests over the death of Freddie Gray. Brian Woodyard — who has the same initials as Bruce Wayne — said he'd warded off dozens of rioters from The Old Clubhouse, a bar where he works, fittingly, as a bouncer.

    At age 60 and weighing 130, the once-rotund Sharpton is almost underweight, and he says he's never hungry. His 'secret': Less food, more exercise. He hasn’t had any sweets in years. He hasn’t had dinner in years, either. Call it “the Al Sharpton Diet,” but this once-rotund reverend has dropped from 305 pounds to exactly 129.6 pounds. The precise weight was recorded this week on Sharpton’s bedroom scale at 5 a.m., when the man of the (much less) cloth begins his day. Sharpton has shed 60% of his much-mocked weight — and he did it without surgery, diet pills or...

Williams has apologized for falsely saying on the air that he was in a helicopter hit by a rocket-propelled grenade while in Iraq in 2003, and Turness said Friday the anchor expressed his regrets to his colleagues for the impact the...

After three weeks of the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) happy talking its Ebola preparedness and wrist-flicking the potential threat, 3 people in America have been infected with Ebola, two nurses and the man they cared for -- who died last week.

    Oral sex could be hazardous to your health. So say researchers who note that oral cancer stemming from the human papilloma virus is more common in the U.S. than oral cancer caused by abusing tobacco. Researchers found a 225% increase in oral cancer cases in the U.S. from 1974 to 2007, mainly among white men, said Maura Gillison, a cancer researcher at Ohio State University. The more oral-sex partners a man had, the greater his cancer risk, Gillison told a meeting of the American Association for the Advancement of Science. Tobacco use remains the leading cause of oral cancer in...

    “The news for New York City is spectacular," New York’s Mayor Michael R. Bloomberg told a City Hall press conference on May 24.

New York’s crime rate now ranks it 211th of the 230 U.S. cities with 100,000-plus population—behind Omaha, Nebraska and Wichita, Kansas. Unfortunately, there must have been at least one skeptic at the press conference. Hizzoner reportedly “bristled” at suggestions that...
