Capital New York Hires Three Columnists As Relaunch Nears

Manhattan New York vs Manhattan Kansas

Columbus Day 2013 closings: Are banks, DMV, post office, Walmart open Monday, October 14?

Now that Capital is close to filling up its reporter ranks on the politics and media desks, editors are lining up several weekly city columnists for the site’s early November relaunch. Capital’s first three columnists will be Jim Windolf, a Vanity Fair contributing editor who has written for several publications and started the New York Observer’s “New York World” column; Joanna Molloy, a veteran Daily News gossip writer and co-author of a new book on the subject; and Glynnis MacNicol, a Capital contributor and former media editor at Business Insider and Mediaite. The model will be more Jimmy Breslin than Joe Scarborough. While Politico columnists, like Scarborough or National Review editor Rich Lowry, comment on political and policy debates, Capital’s writers will produce reported columns that also express a point of view. They’ll draw from the city columnist tradition that extends from tabloid muckraking, a la Breslin, to the New York Times’ Clyde Haberman. Capital co-editor Tom McGeveran told HuffPost the new columns will focus on “New York issues, New York personalities and New York places.” “This is a tradition in which the best columns always entertain,” McGeveran said. “Sometimes they even change the minds of the city’s big decision makers; better yet is when a columnist changes their plans.” The new columnists are not joining full-time, but will write weekly for the site. However, Capital has been filling up the newsroom with full-time reporters and editors since Politico purchased the three-year-old site in September. On the politics front, Capital’s hired Daily News veteran Joanne Wasserman , the Albany Times Union’s Jimmy Vielkind , the New York Post’s Sally Goldenberg. Capital media reporter Joe Pompeo will now be joined on the desk by several additional reporters, including TV Newser’s Alex Weprin, Women’s Wear Daily’s Matthew Lynch, former Newsday and Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reporter Nicole Levy, and World Policy Journal’s Johana Bhuiyan. In addition, Peter Sterne will cover media part-time for the site while finishing at Columbia University.

Not a lot of people even realize one exists outside of New York City, but by looking at the two, some interesting differences and similarities emerge. Ways They are Similar Here are a couple ways they’re very similar. Good for Business – Manhattan, Kansas has been called a place that is very good for small business by a lot of people. And most everyone knows that Manhattan, New York has been the center of business in the world for a long time. It all comes down to what type of business is being run – and whether or not it’s important to be close to many other power players. Grass is Always Greener – The old saying that the grass seems greener on the other side rings true for people living in New York or Kansas. Whether it’s longing to be in the city or dreaming of a simpler life, people are always wanting what they don’t have in life. Note: This is one reason some people look for Wellington Wedding Venues online. Sometimes to really appreciate New York you need to get away for a while. This is true for Kansas too. Just ask Dorothy and Toto. Ways They are Different These are all common sense, but it’s good to see them printed out. Size Matters – While Manhattan, Kansas may be nice for small businesses who do not expect to grow super large really quick, for companies who want to really excel, Manhattan in New York is the place to be. Then again, for some it’s all about quality of life, which would make Manhattan, Kansas a better place to live for many different reasons. Cost of Living – The money it takes to live in both of the cities varies quite a bit, of course.

“Steven Donziger did not ghostwrite a judgment,” Gowen said. “Steven Donziger did not bribe a judge.” In January, Chevron said it relocated Guerra’s family to protect his safety and paid him $38,000 for the costs of providing his evidence. Chevron also confirmed that it agreed to pay Guerra’s family $10,000 per month for living expenses and $2,000 for housing. Guerra and Zambrano are expected to testify at the trial, which is expected to last several weeks. Donziger and the Ecuadoreans argue that the relief Chevron seeks – a ban on enforcing the Ecuadorean judgment in U.S. courts or profiting from it in any way – would violate the 2nd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals’ reversal of Kaplan’s 2011 injunction. They also say they are fighting an unfair battle. Chevron has overwhelmingly more resources. And Donziger and the villagers accuse Kaplan of bias. In a court filing, they wrote that Kaplan’s “contempt” for Ecuador, “its courts, and its laws has only grown more prominent over time.” The 2nd Circuit on September 26 rejected their request to remove Kaplan from the case. Earlier this month, Kaplan ruled that the villagers and Donziger are not entitled to a trial by jury, as they had preferred, because Chevron waived damages claims against them. The case is Chevron Corp v.

Banksy said the stall was a one-off that would not open again, likely to disappoint fans crushed at missing the chance to snap up an affordable original. The white canvases with black spray-painted images were advertised for $60 each with another sign that said: “this is not a photo opportunity.” A short video showed the vendor — wearing sunglasses and a baseball cap — yawning, then munching on his lunch to pass the time before the first sale at 3:30 pm. A woman who bought two small canvases for her children, but only after negotiating a 50 percent discount. Half an hour later, a woman from New Zealand bought two. A man from Chicago then bought four to decorate his new house. By 6:00 pm, total takings for the day were $420, according to the video. Banksy’s stencilled designs, known for their irreverent humor and political activism, have propelled him from a graffiti rebel to reluctant star. He has spoken out against the exorbitant sums paid for his art and invites people to download photographs of his work for free from his website. The free New York show called “Better Out Than In” has whipped up huge excitement in the city as fans rush to track down the different piece of work each day. His Instagram account has more than 152,000 followers and his @banksyny Twitter account has more than 21,000. The show has also included mixed traditional stencil designs with installation art. One of the highlights is a slaughterhouse delivery truck stuffed with soft toy animals, which appeared first in Manhattan’s uber trendy meatpacking district. Called “The Sirens of the Lambs,” the cuddly toy pigs, sheep, chickens and cows are operated by puppeteers and will tour the city for the next two weeks.
