Barrett ’s:

    The Knicks whipped the Pistons, 114-104, on Thursday night to enter the All-Star break on an 8-3 spree and with a winning record at 19-18. With chants of “Let’s Go Knicks’’ from the 2,000 strong on hand at the Garden, they clobbered the Eastern Conference-worst Pistons for the second time in four days, making sure to take advantage on what has been a soft schedule recently. In fact, of their last eight victories, seven have come against clubs well below .500 (Washington, Houston, Atlanta, Minnesota, Sacramento and Detroit). But after seven years of being the league’s laughingstocks, the Knicks will take it. Whether they can keep it up when play resumes is another story. The Knicks will open the season’s second half with a four-game road trip that will test their mettle — at Milwaukee, Oklahoma City, Brooklyn and Philadelphia — and won’t play the Garden again until March 18...
    Petaluma has more gas stations than square miles. No more, city leaders have decided. With at least one filling station no more than five minutes’ drive from every residence, and a local climate emergency declared in 2019, the City Council voted unanimously this week to prohibit the construction of any new gas stations in town. “The actual motivation for this was — and is — our climate emergency resolution and the fact that we’re really trying to shift the needle in our town,” Mayor Teresa Barrett said. The city 40 miles north of San Francisco has 16 stations stuffed into just 14.5-square miles, and a new Safeway grocery store with its own gas station is on the way. Existing filling stations can continue to operate, according to the new resolution. But any expansions are limited to serving zero-emission vehicles — no more pumps or tanks associated with...

The case at hand concerned FOIA, a law designed to allow the public greater access to records from the government. It mandates the disclosure of documents held by a federal agency unless they fall within certain exceptions.

    Washington — The Supreme Court on Thursday shielded draft documents from a pair of federal agencies from disclosure under a widely used federal public records law, with Justice Amy Coney Barrett authoring her first majority opinion since joining the high court in October. The Supreme Court ruled 7-2 in favor of the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Services and National Marine Fisheries Service in their dispute with the Sierra Club, which sought records related to the services' consultations with the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). Justices Stephen Breyer and Sonia Sotomayor dissented. The legal battle stems from a rule the EPA proposed in 2011 regarding "environmental water intake structures," which are used to cool industrial equipment. The agency consulted with the Fish and Wildlife Service and National Marine Fisheries Service before proceeding with its measure, as marine wildlife can become trapped in the structures and...
    After a busy first six months on the Supreme Court, Justice Amy Coney Barrett on Thursday wrote her first majority opinion in a case involving the Environmental Protection Agency and Freedom of Information Act requirements. Barrett's opinion, which was joined by the court's five other conservative members and Justice Elena Kagan, focused on a dispute over the EPA and other environmental agencies and the Sierra Club, an environmental organization seeking to view the agency's consultations with the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service. The court found that the government agencies were protected from FOIA inquires because of the "deliberative process privilege," meaning that draft documents can be withheld from public view. SUPREME COURT DIVIDED ON ARIZONA VOTING RIGHTS CASE "Because the decision-makers neither approved the drafts nor sent them to the EPA, they are best described not as draft biological opinions but as drafts of draft biological opinions," Barrett wrote of...

    COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A federal judge extended a temporary stay on Ohio’s 2019 “heartbeat” abortion ban on Wednesday, saying he will delay a decision on whether to permanently block the law until two intertwined abortion cases are decided. U.S. District Judge Michael Barrett’s order means that enforcement of the law signed by Republican Gov. Mike DeWine in April 2019 will remain on hold. Lawyers for Ohio abortion providers have asked Barrett to block the law permanently. READ MORE: COVID-19 In Pennsylvania: Teachers Say It Is A Blessing To Get Prioritized For Johnson & Johnson Vaccine The measure would prohibit abortions after the first detectable fetal heartbeat, which can occur as early as six weeks into pregnancy before many women know they are pregnant.

    New York Knicks: Barrett named to Rising Stars, Quickley snubbed By: Alder Almo March 3, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditNew York Knicks‘ sophomore swingman RJ Barrett was voted for the second straight year to be part of the World Team in the Rising Stars. Curiously, Knicks rookie Immanuel Quickley was left out of the U.S. Team, which had four rookies. However, the NBA Rising Stars game will not be played this year due to the limitation of having All-Star events all on one night. Barrett joins fellow Canadians Nickeil Alexander-Walker (New Orleans Pelicans), Luguentz Dort (Oklahoma City Thunder), Brandon Clarke (Memphis Grizzlies), and Mychal Mulder (Golden State Warriors). Miami Heat forward Precious Achiuwa (Nigeria), Washington Wizards forwards Deni Avdija (Israel), Rui Hachimura (Japan), Denver Nuggets guard Facundo Campazzo (Argentina), and Théo Maledon (France) complete the World Team roster.

    On Saturday at the Garden, RJ Barrett was on the free-throw line with 14.9 seconds left and the Knicks leading the Pacers by two points. He missed both attempts, but the Knicks still hung on to pull out the win. Barrett’s misses were an anomaly as he closed out a fine February when his game seemed to finally all click. Last season, Barrett’s 3-point marksmanship was alarming – as was his free-throw shooting. His accuracy from the line is key to his productivity because he’s a candidate to draw fouls with his relentless drives to the basket. Barrett ended February with back-to-back big nights — 24 points vs. Indiana and 21 vs. Detroit. In 14 February games, he shot 47.4 percent from the 3-point stripe. His 3-point percentages still is below average — at 34.5 percent compared to last season’s 32 percent. But it’s edging closer to respectable. Barrett’s free-throw...
    Natalie Behring/Zuma Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.At issue in the Supreme Court today was whether restrictive voting laws in Arizona violate the 1965 Voting Rights Act. And a Republican Party lawyer defending the restrictions couldn’t have made his intentions clearer. Tuesday’s oral arguments in two cases—Brnovich v. DNC and Arizona Republican Party v. DNC—concerned the legality of “ballot harvesting,” a practice in which community activists collect ballots to boost voter turnout. The arguments also discussed an Arizona law that disqualified ballots cast in the wrong precinct. There’s no evidence of the voting fraud that these laws purport to limit, and voting rights activists say that the laws disproportionately limit Black, Latino, and Native American voters’ access to the polls. So Justice Amy Coney Barrett had a simple question for the lawyer defending...

    Julius Randle became an All-Star last week. He became a winner Sunday in Detroit. After six previous seasons being part of losing teams, Randle has spearheaded the Knicks to a winning record — achieved Sunday with a 109-90 rout of the Pistons at Little Caesars Arena. The Knicks moved to 18-17 and hold fourth place in the bunched-up Eastern Conference. It’s the latest they’ve been over .500 in a season since the 54-win campaign of 2012-13. The Knicks led by 11 at halftime and Randle punched the Pistons’ lights out with a brilliant 12-point third quarter. Randle finished with 25 points on 10 of 17 shooting, eight rebounds, six assists and two steals as his bust-out season roared on one night after dominating All-Star Domantas Sabonis of the Pacers. “I think that’s the nature of the league,” Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau said. “Sometimes the schedule is in your favor, sometimes...

    Getty Von Miller could hit the free agent market if he is released. We can expect the Tampa Bay Buccaneers to be linked to a number of NFL stars throughout the offseason thanks to the perfect combination of Tom Brady and the team’s Super Bowl run. Former NFL quarterback and SiriusXM radio analyst Brady Quinn suggested the Buccaneers could add Broncos linebacker Von Miller if the team is not willing to pay Shaq Barrett’s asking price in free agency. “If you and I were going to bet right now on Von Miller at 32 this year having more production/more sacks if when healthy with Tampa, as compared to Shaq Barrett, if he leaves, I’d put my money on Von Miller,” Quinn explained, per JoeBucsFan.com. Miller is not a free agent but there is some speculation that the pass rusher could be a cap casualty for the...

    The Warriors shot 24 free throws. The Knicks shot 22 free throws. That didn’t stop the Knicks from voicing concern about the officials after the first Garden game this season with fans. Derrick Rose was the most vocal after he felt he got fouled on a few forays to the hoop. The Knicks shot 39 percent and faded in the second half — a recent trend. “I felt we were getting good shots,’’ Rose said. “To be honest, we weren’t getting the calls. It felt like guys were going into the lane and we weren’t getting the same calls. It makes it hard when it’s that lopsided.’’ The stats don’t show much lopsidedness, but coach Tom Thibodeau, too, was upset, and Julius Randle picked up two technical fouls to get ejected. Do the Warriors simply get more respect? “I really don’t know,’’ Rose said. “We’re pros. I don’t even want...

    (CNN)Catherine Barrett says a neighbor's small act of kindness was what sparked a now-global movement focused on all things good. Like most people around the globe in March 2020, Barrett was terrified of the then-novel coronavirus and watched as residents tried to navigate the crisis by canceling events, often panic buying and locking themselves inside their home to evade an invisible enemy."There was aggression and people were getting really wound up," she recalls.  Amid the panic, Barrett says a neighbor left out a bowl of chocolates on a shared table in her apartment complex. The same day, Barrett -- who lives in Melbourne, Australia -- decided to create a Facebook page focused on other kindly acts from around the world. She named it: "The Kindness Pandemic.""It just felt like something really positive to grab a hold of," she said. "The alternative for me was being in a world that was...

Barrett wasn’t just Gene Roddenberry’s wife though. She was also a Star Trek star in her own right.

    Should the New York Knicks consider trading RJ Barrett in blockbuster deal? By: Alexander Wilson February 21, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditIf the New York Knicks really want to acquire a star player, they are going to have to give up some premium assets. The Knicks have been linked to Washington star Bradley Beal, who is a bonafide superstar and would immediately make the Knicks a better team. While Beal has only reached the All-Star game twice, he’s averaged over 30 points per game the past two seasons and is just 27 years old. Over 25 games this year, Beal is averaging 32.9 points, 4.6 assists, and 5.2 rebounds, arguably his best season to date.

Saturday’s scheduled home game against San Antonio became the Knicks’ first contest to be pushed back when four Spurs players tested positive earlier this week. “Fortunately, we’ve just been lucky,” Knicks guard RJ Barrett said on a Zoom call Friday after practice. “We’ve been doing the right things. We have a great staff, great medical team. Obviously, just praying and hoping that we continue to stay like this. “In terms of the game [Saturday], it gives us an extra day of prep for Minnesota.” Indeed, the Knicks (14-16) will have had three days off — since Wednesday’s clunker in Orlando halted their three-game winning streak — before facing the NBA-worst Timberwolves on Sunday night at the Garden. Sunday’s game will be the first of four straight at home...

    Did the New York Knicks ‘bench’ RJ Barrett against Orlando? By: Alexander Wilson February 18, 2021 ShareTweetFlipRedditIf you were looking objectively at New York Knicks shooting guard RJ Barrett’s stats, he has taken a developmental leap this year compared to his rookie season in 2020. Over 56 games last year, he averaged 14.3 points, 5.0 rebounds, and 2.6 assists. He also earned a .402  field goal percentage and hit  .320 from downtown. This year, however, he’s averaging 16.5 points over 33.7 minutes, with a .428 field goal percentage. Pair that with 3.16 assists and 6.2 total rebounds per game, and you can conclude he’s playing at a higher level. With Barrett averaging about three minutes more per contest this year, he’s gradually taking steps forward and establishing himself as an everyday starter. That doesn’t mean that he doesn’t struggle in his...
    It all started against the Heat on Feb. 7, when RJ Barrett played just 19 minutes and was benched for the final 17. And that was before the Knicks acquired point guard Derrick Rose. In five of the past six games, Barrett has seen his minutes slide under 30 — a significant drop-off, since he was leading the league in playing time three weeks ago. The homely 107-89 loss at Orlando on Wednesday night became the most head-scratching one in the continuing reduction of Barrett’s role. The third pick in the 2019 draft was playing very well and had helped the Knicks get off to a double-digit, first-quarter lead. In the win over the Hawks on Monday, Barrett hit two giant, late-game 3-pointers. But Wednesday, as the Knicks tried to mount a rally in the fourth quarter, coach Tom Thibodeau ignored Barrett. He didn’t enter until minutes were left, and...

    A year ago at this time, the NBA was gathered in Chicago for All-Star weekend and the Knicks, no surprise, were invisible. None of the players had come anywhere close to being named to the game. There was nobody in the slam-dunk contest, nobody in the 3-point contest. The one bright light? RJ Barrett played for the World Team in the Rising Stars Challenge and scored a game-high 27 points.

    Getty Shaquil Barrett goes after Patrick Mahomes in the Super Bowl. One of Tampa Bay’s top pass rushers won’t come cheap to play for the Buccaneers in 2021. Bucs linebacker Shaquil Barrett will become a free agent in March and looks to have a bigger and longer payday. With the Bucs needing to sign a plethora of key players this offseason, retaining Barrett could significantly impact other signings. Barrett voiced his desires for a new contract on Thursday with Adam Schein SiriusXM’s Mad Dog Sports Radio according to NFL.com’s Kevin Patra. “I feel like it’s time for me to break the bank now, and I most definitely want to do that to be able to set my family up better and most definitely going to keep producing, so it’s not like anything is going to fall off,” Barrett told Schein, per Patra. Barrett played on the franchise tag...
    An off-duty New Jersey EMS supervisor jumped to action when he spotted flames coming from the window of an apartment building Thursday night. Michael Barrett from the Elizabeth EMS Fire Department called dispatch when he saw billowing flames near South St. and Rahway Ave. while driving home after his shift, officials said. Barrett — a 20-year veteran of the station — took matters into his own hands by knocking on the doors of the fire-ravaged building, where he discovered a victim in the burning apartment. Barrett then pulled the burn victim out of the apartment and to a safe area, a Facebook post from the station said. The victim was taken to Saint Barnabas Burn Center and Barrett was treated at Trinitas ER for smoke inhalation. “Shout out to EMS Supervisor Michael Barrett,” the post said. “#Hero.”

Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports Shaq Barrett says that his Buccaneers’ Super Bowl performance even left him surprised. The Bucs entered their game against Kansas City as underdogs, yet they unleashed a dominant 31-9 win. Part of the game was arguably influenced by officiating, but the Bucs still held the Chiefs to single digits, which is remarkable.

He told “The Jim Rome Show” on Thursday that preventing Kansas City from scoring a touchdown even surpassed his expectations. "To come out there...
    Paramount Pictures has hired Adam Wingard to develop the remake of ‘Face to face‘, the iconic 1997 film directed by John Woo and starring John Travolta and Nicolas Cage. Wingard will direct the film, in addition to writing its script with his regular collaborator Simon Barrett. A “remake” more aptly described as a “reinvention” than to be produced by Neal H. Moritz, also producer of the remarkable remake of ‘Total Challenge’ through his Original Film. Screenwriter Oren Uziel (‘College Departed’, ‘The Cloverfield Paradox’) has been working on the project since it was announced in September 2019, although it is unclear if Wingard and Barrett will use their work as a basis or if on the contrary, they will start from scratch. Recall that the director of ‘A Horrible Way to Die’, ‘You are the next’, ‘The Guest’ or ‘Blair Witch’ has pending the premiere of his latest film,...
    Getty Patrick Mahomes #15 of the Kansas City Chiefs looks to pass over Shaquil Barrett #58 of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. This past Sunday, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers knocked off the Kansas City Chiefs to stake claim to their second Super Bowl victory in the organization’s 45-year history. Quarterback Tom Brady garnered most of the headlines, becoming only the second quarterback in NFL history to hoist a Lombardi Trophy in his first season with a new team, further cementing his status as the GOAT. Yet, it was Tampa’s defense that was arguably the true star of the big game. Chiefs Superstar Patrick Mahomes was limited to just 270 yards passing on the night, was picked off twice and failed to find the endzone for the first time in his NFL career. Mahomes’ unforeseen struggles can be attested to a ferocious Buccaneers front-seven that pressured the former league MVP...
    The ending is what will gnaw at these Knicks for a couple of days, before they take on the Wizards in Washington on Friday. The ending was a beautiful drive by RJ Barrett that went all wrong, with clever old Jimmy Butler staying with Barrett just long enough to force Barrett to go higher on the glass than he wanted. The ball spun away. The final buzzer groaned at AmericanAirlines Arena. There would be no overtime. There would be no payback for Sunday’s hotly contested game between these two teams. There would be no satisfying flight home from Miami. The final score was 98-96, Heat, the final verdict that the Knicks, though better, are still learning how to win, and part if that curve involves learning how not to lose. “We need everyone to play well,” Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau said. “And we just came up short in the end.”...
    Bruce Arians’ Tampa Bay Buccaneers entered Sunday’s Super Bowl LV as underdogs. Sure, they had arguably the greatest quarterback of all time on their roster. But they were going up against defending champions Kansas City Chiefs led by NFL golden boy, Patrick Mahomes. Prior to tonight, Mahomes had just one loss in the post-season. That came at the hands of Tom Brady and the New England Patriots back in January 2019. He was brilliant against the Buffalo Bills a couple of weeks ago despite playing through an apparent toe injury and concussion struggles. But unfortunately, he could not do much to trouble the Bucs defense on Sunday night. A major reason behind the Chiefs’ poor display (apart from their miserable defense) was the performance of the home team. Buccaneers linebacker Shaquil Barrett, in particular, took his game to a whole new level as Mahomes suffered his first Super Bowl loss....
    Sergio Dionisio/Getty Images One actress who appeared on Star Trek says she slept with show creator Gene Roddenberry. However, she may not have been the only actress to be intimately connected to the show’s creator. In fact, a different actress who appeared on the series ultimately married Roddenberry. The original series of Star Trek aired from 1966 to 1969. It is also known that Gene Roddenberry reached a divorce settlement with his first wife, Eileen, in 1969, and married a former Trek actress shortly after that divorce was finalized.

    Howl about that? A coyote was seen strolling in Central Park in a rare sighting over the weekend — as hundreds of people flocked there to catch a glimpse of a historic snowy owl, a parkgoer said. “We were heading home after searching for and not finding the snowy owl. It was a thrill! A huge consolation prize!” Nancy Mendoza wrote on Twitter. The encounter occurred late Saturday evening west of the Reservoir, according to birder David Barrett who documented the sighting on his Twitter account Manhattan Bird Alert. He said it’s not the first time that the best has stalked the green space. “At least one coyote has been documented multiple times in Central Park in recent years, seen at night or near sunrise. It always avoids people and hides during the day at locations unknown,” he tweeted . Barrett quipped that perhaps the beast was “also trying...

    The chemistry, stability and durability Knicks coach Tom Thibodeau has established after a feel-good 11-14 start will now be put to the test with the Derrick Rose trade that was officially announced on Monday. For those afraid of the impact this will have on exciting backup rookie point guard Immanuel Quickley’s minutes, don’t fret. Quickley is good in his role as a backup in his first year. He’s averaging 18.9 minutes a game and that doesn’t stand to be much impacted. The greater concern is team chemistry. The concern is if this is too much a lateral move to be worth the threat of hurting the team’s cohesion. Rose, 32, likes the ball, has the ball, drives the ball. He must turn into as good a playmaker as scorer. Thibodeau still believes Rose has it in him on certain nights to look like the 2011 MVP – an accomplishment Rose...

Patrick Mahomes, already battered and bruised from the onslaught of Tampa Bay pass rushers, had the Chiefs in position to perhaps change the course of the Super Bowl. Kansas City trailed by 14-3, but with a touchdown on this drive they could cut the Buccaneers’ lead to just four. That, coupled with the knowledge that the Chiefs would receive the second-half kickoff, made this a pivotal moment. © Provided by Touchdown Wire It was the buildup to a scene crafted so many times...
    Usually, stopping Patrick Mahomes is exceedingly difficult. The Buccaneers made it sound easy. “We didn’t blitz a lot,’’ linebacker Lavonte David said. “We just let our D-line eat.’’ What a feast it was. What looked to be a mismatch going into Super Bowl 2021 — Buccaneers edge-rushers Jason Pierre-Paul and Shaq Barrett against two backup Chiefs offensive tackles — turned out to be the deciding factor in what turned into a 31-9 rout for the Bucs on Sunday night at Raymond James Stadium. Mahomes, running for his life in an ever-collapsing pocket, was sacked three times (1.5 by Ndamukong Suh) and hit eight more times. There were times when he threw the ball away only after eluding pressure that forced him to dart this way and that way without finding anywhere to plant his feet and make anything other than a desperation throwaway. Right from the start of the game,...

    In what seemed to be the first dystopian shots of the annual Super Bowl ad arms race, Dolly Parton announced last week that she had rewritten her working-class anthem “9 to 5” as “5 to 9” for a Squarespace commercial about, as Variety put it, “office workers getting their entrepreneurial side hustles going after hours.” (Sleeping is out; the gig economy is in!) To this, Coors said—and I apologize in advance for this—hold my beer.

    Two weeks after the Knicks failed to complete a stirring comeback in Portland — largely because they couldn’t stop Damian Lillard — they more than held their own in the point-guard battle against the Trail Blazers to post their second straight victory. Elfrid Payton netted 22 points in his second strong performance in a row, rookie backup Immanuel Quickley kicked in 12 points in 13 minutes off the bench and both were active defensively against Lillard as the Knicks held off the Blazers for a 110-99 win Saturday at the Garden. “We had to obviously take care of the problem, which is Dame. He’s the head of the snake for them.

    Super Bowl LV could be the final game for some players on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Kansas City Chiefs because several starters on both teams are expected to hit free agency this offseason. The NFL salary cap is expected to drop for the first time since 2011. It’s expected to go down by more than $20 million due to COVID-19, and both teams will have no choice but to make some difficult decisions following the big game. CLICK HERE FOR MORE SPORTS COVERAGE ON FOXNEWS.COM Buccaneers defensive end Shaq Barrett, who led the NFL with 19.5 sacks in 2019, played under the franchise tag in 2020.

    Can the Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs’ offensive machine be stopped enough for Tom Brady and the Buccaneers to outscore them? That’s the basic question in Super Bowl 55, which puts the onus on Tampa Bay’s defense to give its team a chance for the upset. To that end, what helps the Bucs’ cause is the fact Kansas City has a weakness going into the game that plays into Tampa’s strengths. Starting left tackle Eric Fisher (Achilles), injured in the AFC championship win over Buffalo, will join starting right tackle Mitchell Schwartz (back) on the shelf. That’s a huge point of exposure for the Buccaneers’ star edge rushing linebackers Shaquil Barrett and Jason Pierre-Paul, who rattled Aaron Rodgers in the NFC championship game by taking advantage of left tackle David Bakhtiari’s absence. The Packers had allowed only 21 sacks in the regular season before Barrett and Pierre-Paul combined for five. The Chiefs allowed...

She was Number One in #StarTrek's first pilot, "The Cage," Christine Chapel on #TOS and #TAS, Lwaxana Troi on #TNG and #DS9, and the voice of the computer in 6 series and 5 films. pic.twitter.com/u312awyGMa — TrekMovie.com (@TrekMovie) February 23, 2020 In a turn of events that’s a bit ironic, given how important contracts are for working actors,...
    By ARNIE STAPLETON, AP Pro Football Writer With some fresh but familiar advice from his mentor, Tampa Bay Buccaneers linebacker Shaquil Barrett aims to wreck Patrick Mahomes’ prospects for another Super Bowl parade the same way Von Miller destroyed Cam Newton’s party plans five years ago. Barrett recalls Miller gathering his fellow Denver Broncos pass rushers at the team hotel on the eve of Super Bowl 50 in Santa Clara, California, and telling them the championship was theirs for the taking if they could just get to the Carolina quarterback. Miller knocked both the football and the Lombardi Trophy from Newton’s grasp with a pair of strip-sacks in the Broncos’ 24-10 victory the next night. “He was determined to get it by any means, wouldn’t let failure be an option,” Barrett recounted. “And that’s what I’m on right now. We came too close to start next year without a ring....
    A new report finds that claims of anti-conservative bias on social media platforms are not only untrue but serve as a form of disinformation. The report from NYU’s Stern Center for Business and Human Rights says not only is there no empirical finding that social media companies systematically suppress conservatives, but even reports of anecdotal instances tend to fall apart under close scrutiny. And in an effort to appear unbiased, platforms actually bend over backward to try to appease conservative critics. “The contention that social media as an industry censors conservatives is now, as we speak, becoming part of an even broader disinformation campaign from the right, that conservatives are being silenced all across American society,” the report’s lead researcher Paul Barrett said in an interview with The News Brig. “This is the obvious post-Trump theme, we’re seeing it on Fox News, hearing it from Trump lieutenants, and I think...

    NEW YORK (CBSNewYork/AP) — Kawhi Leonard scored 28 points and the Los Angeles Clippers rang up the highest point total of the season against the NBA’s leading defense, beating the New York Knicks 129-115 on Sunday for their 10th win in 11 games. The Clippers shredded the NBA leaders in fewest points per game allowed to break away after leading by one after two quarters. They surpassed the 102.7 points per game the Knicks had been allowing with their first basket of the final quarter and kept pouring it on in their third straight victory. Reggie Jackson added 18 points and Paul George had 17 for the Clippers, who made 17 3-pointers and shot 54% overall against a Knicks team that led the league in that category as well while improving to 16-5.

    The Knicks already had posted several impressive wins this season against some of the NBA’s expected top teams, including Milwaukee, Utah and Boston. A toe-to-toe victory Sunday over the high-rolling Clippers would have rocked a full Garden from its foundation to the rafters, but the Knicks ran out of steam inside their empty home arena in a mostly entertaining 129-115 loss to Los Angeles. Rookie point guard Immanuel Quickley appeared poised to front a comeback from a 12-point third-quarter deficit with 11 of his 25 points in the fourth, including a couple of 3-pointers to draw them within two with under eight minutes remaining. But former Knicks forward Marcus Morris, who was traded at last year’s deadline for the eventual 25th overall pick that enabled the Knicks to draft Quickley, dropped in a corner 3 to reopen the LA lead to nine. Kawhi Leonard (28 points) pushed it back over...
    Major media outlets and reporters celebrated President Joe Biden’s Catholicism, highlighting his liberal policies and personal devotion. Democratic politicians and media figures criticized the Catholicism of Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett for her adherence to certain Catholic principles. While criticism of Barrett’s Catholicism focuses on her adherence to Catholic teaching, media defenses of Biden’s Catholicism do not account for contradictions between Biden’s policy and Catholic Church teaching. Major media outlets and reporters celebrated President Joe Biden’s Catholicism though he embraces policies explicitly opposed to Catholic teaching but criticized the Catholicism of Supreme Court Justice Amy Coney Barrett for her adherence to certain Catholic principles. Major outlets, reporters, and Democrats previously suggested that Barrett’s Catholicism was linked to extreme and cultish behavior. Yet most media also celebrates Biden’s Catholicism as “devout” without noting the significance of his divergence from Catholic teaching. Others suggest that the Catholic sentiment is...
    A Hudson Valley tax preparer and the owner of Eversley Tax has been sentenced to six months in prison for preparing false and fraudulent income tax returns. Eversley Barrett, of New Windsor, was sentenced on Friday, Jan. 29, to prison time after pleading guilty to 16 counts of an 84-count indictment, said Audrey Strauss, the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York. “Eversley Barrett abused his position of trust as a tax preparer by filing false tax returns on behalf of his clients and himself," said Strauss. "He caused over half a million dollars in losses to the IRS, all for his own unjust enrichment."  According to Strauss, Barrett included, among other things, tens of thousands of dollars of false and fraudulent deductions for business expenses and gifts to charity on tax returns he prepared for himself and his clients.  He also failed to report on his...
    You knew this was going to be a stylish Garden evening for point guards when Walt Frazier walked out of the Friday night cold, into the arena in his full-length, white fur coat he bought during the 1973 championship season. “When it’s zero degrees, I like to bring out the minks,’’ Frazier said. “I wear it like Al Capone.’’ Hours later, the heat was brought again by the Knicks’ splendid rookie point guard Immanuel Quickley as he looks to carry on Frazier’s legacy where so many others have failed before. After RJ Barrett dominated the first half, Quickley delivered a flurry of knockout blows to the Cavaliers, swimming his way to 19 points in the game’s final 12:40 in the Knicks’ feel-good 102-81 triumph. With Quickley pulling a Portland, when the Kentucky product scored 21 fourth-quarter points, it will again stir social media to coax Tom Thibodeau to start him...
