Pete Caldera MLB writer Published 1:23 PM EST Nov 30, 2018 STAMFORD, Conn. – Brian Cashman’s best pitch to Patrick Corbin included dinner, following a tour of Yankee Stadium and its player amenities. Now, the Yankees anticipate the free-agent lefty’s decision process as several other clubs are also bidding for Corbin’s services. But the Yanks have other options as well. “There’s a lot of players of interest to us and a lot of players that can improve us, both in free agency and trades,’’ Cashman said Friday. “So, I wouldn’t designate anybody as a primary.’’ Between practice runs at the Landmark Building, where Cashman will once again rappel down 22 stories as part of Stamford’s "Heights and Lights" holiday fest, the Yankees' GM offered some insights on his winter wish list. “There’s a lot of attractive players that are available, for various price points,’’ … [Read more...] about As New York Yankees court Patrick Corbin, Brian Cashman weighs options

When Crispin Hernandez asked for a day off to meet with labor rights advocates, he was demoted from a regular cow milker to an odd jobs worker at a dairy farm in Lewis County. When he met with co-workers and advocates to discuss how to organize against working conditions, the farmer's son called the police. When he distributed fliers to rally workers, he was fired. As a farmworker, Hernandez was denied a day off, overtime pay and the chance to collective bargaining — rights granted to New York employees but not farmworkers under an 80-year-old law. Hernandez sued the New York Supreme Court in Albany County in an unprecedented case. The lawsuit was dismissed in January because the judge said the law wasn't discriminatory and didn't cover farmworkers.

Levine and Jonathan Wolfe Aug. 21, 2018 Good morning on this comfy Tuesday. We talk at length about protecting our skin during the summer months. But eye safety? Not so much. Yes, your eyes can get sunburned, too. “Being in the city, even if you’re just walking around — even if there’s a cloud cover — you still need protection for the eyes,” said Dr. Ashley Brissette, an ophthalmologist at NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital/Weill Cornell Medical Center. Ultraviolet exposure from the sun “can affect the eyeballs themselves,” she said. The most common issue caused by the sun is cataracts, a cloudiness of the lens inside the eye, which can result in vision loss as we get older. It’s normal for the eye to age or … [Read more...] about New York Today: Protecting Your Eyes
