  • Lester Holt shows he doesn’t know the meaning of impartial September 27, 2016
    The ref not only made himself part of the game on Monday night, he ran up to the scrimmage line, then sacked the quarterback three times. In the early going, it looked like it was going to be an ideal, Jim Lehrer-style performance from Lester Holt, the NBC Nightly News anchor. Lehrer was so boringly...
  • Male models’ secrets to looking good naked September 27, 2016
    It’s the naked truth — models have hot bodies. But despite how natural their ripples and bulges look, staying in tiptop shape for the camera is tough work. That effort is shown off in photographer Mariano Vivanco’s newest book, “Portraits Nudes Flowers” (Damiani, out Tuesday), which features some of the fashion industry’s most iconic faces,...
  • Creative tenants to be vacated from posh street: source September 27, 2016
    A landmarked office building across the street from skyscraper One57 is being emptied of its artsy tenants — suggesting that the luxury condo-creation boom along 57th Street’s “Billionaires’ Row” isn’t over yet. Leases are not being renewed for office tenants at the Feil Organization’s handsome 140 W. 57th St., we’ve learned. Although Feil would not...
  • Jets at a crossroads that will reveal a lot about Todd Bowles September 27, 2016
    Todd Bowles did not scream. He did not yell. He did not have to. Bowles stood before his team Monday, a day after a 24-3 butt-kicking by the Chiefs and delivered his message in an even tone that got his point across. “Any time you lose like that, you’ve got to have a come-to-Jesus meeting,”...
  • ‘Comb on Over!’: The slogans campaigns should be using September 27, 2016
    There were too many words spoken in Monday night’s presidential debate. I like it when the selling points are succinct — like they are on political buttons and bumper stickers. My personal favorite: “Don’t Worry. You’ll Wake Up Soon.” In a great tradition that I began during the last presidential vote, here are some slogans...
  • Will Angela Merkel save Deutsche Bank or not? September 27, 2016
    Will Germany’s chancellor Angela Merkel let Deutsche Bank go kaput? Germany’s largest bank scrambled to contain damage to its share price on Monday, after a European report said that it probably wouldn’t get a government bailout — increasing the likelihood that a major settlement with US prosecutors could bury the 146-year-old bank. Merkel has ruled...
  • When thoughtful Jeremy Lin would make anthem statement September 27, 2016
    Jeremy Lin is among the NBA’s most socially conscious players. And while he is noncommittal about whether the Nets will emulate 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick’s protest, he is happy the 49ers quarterback’s decision to kneel during the national anthem — and the movement it sparked — has shed light on and sparked discussion over a...
  • What Clinton and Trump’s debate fashion reveals September 27, 2016
    Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump used opposite tactics while dressing for their first face-off Monday evening. At Monday’s presidential debate at Hofstra University, Democratic nominee Clinton wore a bold red power suit that grabbed the spotlight, while the Donald went for a more low-key look: a cobalt blue tie, more hair conservatively coifed hair. The...
